They hadn’t been counted in with the rest of the People of Israel because they didn’t inherit any land.   63These are the ones numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest, the People of Israel counted in the Plains of Moab at Jordan–Jericho. 64Not one of them had been among those counted by Moses and Aaron the priest in the census of the People of Israel taken in the Wilderness of Sinai. 65For God had said of them, “They’ll die, die in the wilderness—not one of them will be left except for Caleb son of Jephunneh, and Joshua son of Nun.”
