CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
99:8 Them - The intercessors before mentioned. Forgavest - The people for whom they prayed, so far as not to inflict that total destruction upon them which they deserved;
The Levites obeyed Moses' command, and about 3,000 people died that day.
Now go, lead the people to the place I told you about. Look! My angel will lead the way before you. And when I come to call the people to account, I will certainly hold them responsible for their sins."
Then the LORD said, "I will pardon them as you have requested.
But the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, "Because you did not trust me enough to demonstrate my holiness to the people of Israel, you will not lead them into the land I am giving them!"
Yet he was merciful and forgave their sins and did not destroy them all. Many times he held back his anger and did not unleash his fury!
So in my anger I took an oath: 'They will never enter my place of rest.'"
Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy mountain in Jerusalem, for the LORD our God is holy!
