They were protected from getting seek and from danger. God even protected their belongings and they saw his wonders as he followed them by fire at night and a cloud by day. 40 years of protection, but they did not fully believe.

Disobedience brought many sorrows, Israel’s dispersion, the sanctuaries ruin and earths miseries. 

Ps. Chapter 150: Praise God in his sanctuary. Praise him in his mighty firmament.

Praise him for his mighty acts; praise him according to his excellent greatness.
