Numbers 14: 1, 26 - 29, 34 - 35
1 Then all the congregation raised a loud cry; and the people wept that night.
26 And the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron,
27 "How long shall this wicked congregation murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the people of Israel, which they murmur against me.
28 Say to them, `As I live,' says the LORD, `what you have said in my hearing I will do to you:
29 your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and of all your number, numbered from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me,
34 According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for every day a year, you shall bear your iniquity, forty years, and you shall know my displeasure.'
35 I, the LORD, have spoken; surely this will I do to all this wicked congregation that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall come to a full end, and there they shall die."
