CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And to whom sware he - note, Hebrews 3:11.
But to them that believed not - That did not confide in God; Deuteronomy 1:32. "Yet in this thing ye did not believe the Lord your God." In consequence of this want of faith, God solemnly sware unto them that they should not enter into the promised land; Deuteronomy 1:34-35. "And the Lord heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying, "Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land which I sware to give unto your fathers, save Caleb," etc. The distinct reason, therefore, assigned by Moses why they did not enter the promised land, was a want of faith, and this accords directly with the design of the apostle here. He is exhorting those whom he addressed to beware of an evil heart of unbelief; Hebrews 3:12. He says that it was such a heart that excluded the Hebrews from the promised land. The same thing, says he, must exclude you from heaven - the promised home of the believer; and if that firm confidence in God and his promises which he requires is wanting, you will be excluded from the world of eternal rest.

Humility is the Root of Charity, and Meekness the Fruit of Both. ...
shall by no means see the land which I swore to their fathers, nor shall any of those who spurned Me see it.
even those men who brought out the very bad report of the land died by a plague before the LORD.
"Then the LORD heard the sound of your words, and He was angry and took an oath, saying,
Because they did not believe in God And did not trust in His salvation.
"He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."
For just as you once were disobedient to God, but now have been shown mercy because of their disobedience,
For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the word they heard did not profit them, because it was not united by faith in those who heard.
