Who entered the promise land? I know that Moses did not enter. I know that Joshua and Caleb did. I know that a generation died off during the 40-year wilderness travel – leaving only those that were under the fighting age of 20 at the time of the spying (Num. 13&14). But what about the Levites? Did any [or all] of the older [surviving] Levites -- that were above 20 years old at the time of the syping -- enter the promised land? Were they exempted from the curse? Here is why I think they might have: 1. Eleazar (Aaron’s son) entered the promised land. We know this because we have mention of Eleazar several places in the book of Joshua. It looks like Eleazar was older than 20 years old (at the time of the spies) because he was old enough to have a son at the time of the Exodus (Ex. 6:25). 2. The tribe of Levi sent no spy (Num. 8:1-16). The curse in Numbers 14 seems to be directed against the spies (except Caleb and Joshua) and the murmerers. 3. The ones that died in the wilderness are described as “numbered” and ‘men of war’. “For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people [that were] men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey.” Jos 5:6 When the men of war were numbered, the Levites were not numbered with them (Num. 1:49). So, did the ‘older’ Levites enter the promised land?
