Numbers 14 and Joshua 23
Num 14:33 (KJV)
33And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.
Num 14:6-10 (KJV)
6And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:7And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.8If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.9Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.10But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.
Num 14:20-24 (KJV)
20And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:21But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.22Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;23Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:24But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.
Josh 23:7-13 (KJV)
7That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:8But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day.9For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but as for you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day.10One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.11Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God.12Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:13Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.
Judg 2:1-8 (KJV)
1And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you.2And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?3Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.4And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept.5And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they sacrificed there unto the LORD.6And when Joshua had let the people go, the children of Israel went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land.7And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel.8And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old.
