18 The LORD is long-fuffering, and of great Mercy, forgiving Iniquity and Tranfgreflion, and by no means clearing the Guilty, vifiting the Iniquity of the Fathers upon the Children unto the third and fourth Generation.

41 And Mofes faid, Wherefore now do you tranfgrefs the Commandment of the LORD, but it fhall not profper? 42 Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not fmitten before your Enemies.

43 For the Amalekites, and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye fhall fall by the Sword: becaufe ye are



turned away from the LORD; therefore the LORD will not be with you.

44 But they prefumed to go up unto the Hill-top: nevertheless, the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD, and Moles departed not out of the Camp.
