19 And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.

Commentary on this verse

By Alexander Payne

Verse 19. And when the soul left the state in which it had been instructed in truths from the Word, it passed through temptations in which, the mind appeared deprived of all joy and happiness, and was oppressed by evils and falses. These are perceived to be in the soul when it is in a state of self-love, and for this reason it is remitted into this state by the Lord, after which the regenerating soul comes into the affection of interior or rational truth (Kadesh-barnea).
