How many israelites went into the promised land?
Around two million, if not more. The men aged 20 to 60 were numbered 600,000 (Numbers ch. 26); and to this number must be added an equal number of women, plus elders, children, and the 23,000 Levites, who also all had wives, children and elders.

According to tradition it was 3284 years ago (1272 BCE).
The book of Numbers (26:51) says there were 601 thousand seven hundred and thirty mature Israelite males. To this must be added an equal number of women, plus children, fo…r a total of around two million. Of those who had left Egypt, Joshua and Caleb were the only men over the age of 20 years old that actually entered the Promised Land. The rest disobeyed God and did not live wholeheartedly for God, whereas Joshua and Caleb did. Those who disobeyed died off gradually in the wilderness, allowing enough time for them to have children (Numbers ch.14). "Surely none of the men who came up from Egypt, from twenty years old and above, shall see the land of which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, because they have not wholly followed Me, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the Lord." (Numbers 32:11-12) NKJV
It isn't known. The census taken toward the end of the wilderness period mentioned 601,730 as being over 20 years old and able-bodied for war, but it does not specify how …many of this particular group had been present in Egypt. The children of Israel wandered for 40 years. What is in the word of God says that no-one over the age of 20 would enter the Promised Land, save Joshua and Caleb: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. (Numbers 14:29-30) With this being said - if they were in the wilderness for 40 years, then those that murmured against God had to be over 20 years old, according to the time of their murmurings as found in Numbers. Those under 20 were not held accountable for this murmuring, unless we want to read into that there might have been some that were also refusing to obey and listen to God that would not enter the Promised Land. It is not revealed exactly how old that Joshua and Caleb were when they entered the Promised Land, but it is supposed that Joshua might have been about 60, therefore making him one of only 2 possible people that entered the Promised Land that left Egypt. Only two made it to the promised land Joshua,and Caleb. They were the two originals that came out of Egypt. The rest spent their time wandering the desert
It is not known. Answer The Bible never gives an exact amount of Israelites that entered the Promised Land. The Israelites wandered 40 years to reach the Promised Land, out of… all of the Israelites that left Egypt, only Joshua and Caleb were allowed to enter the Promised Land. The rest were to wander and not allowed to enter. The only other Israelites that were allowed to enter the Promised land were all of the Israelites that were under the age of 20 years old.
Yes. According to the Bible, God promised the Land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants, the Israelites, in Genesis 17: 8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after… thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. According to Genesis, the descendants of Abraham were the Israelites and the Arabs. That could lead one to conclude that the land was promised to the Israelites and also to the Arabs. The biblical promise, though, seems to be related specifically to Isaac (in Genesis 26:3) and Jacob, a.k.a. Israel (in Genesis 28:13 and Joshua 1:1-6). Answer #2The above was made void, because of Leviticus. 3rd Book of Moses. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: [ROMANS 4:13-14.] Law are only required by those whom lack FAITH!
Actually the Israelites were told by god to wipe out every one in the promised land, but they did not listen to it, and spared them, and even married the girls from ther…e. And now Isrealites have proplem with the Palestine people . The people who are the decendents of the people who lived in the promised land.
Canaan was considered the Promised Land (Exodus ch.3). Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt (Exodus ch.12); and during the journey they depended on God to provide food an…d water. Moses struck a rock with his staff at God's command (Exodus ch.17) and water flowed from the rock. On another occasion Moses was commanded to merely speak to the rock, but water did not immediately flow, so he struck it a second time (Numbers ch.20). This showed God that Moses did not fully place all of his trust in Him because if he had complete faith, he would have waited and known that water would eventually come. As a punishment for his doubt, God never allowed Moses to enter into the Promised Land (Numbers ch.20, Deuteronomy ch.32), and he died before it was actually reached. As a result of this, Joshua took Moses' position (Numbers ch.27) and was the actual person who led the Israelites into Canaan (Joshua ch.3-4).
According to the Bible, 600,000 fighting men escaped from Egypt. This excluded the priestly tribe of Levi, who were not considered fighting men. Scholars have estimated that, …including women and children, there would have to have been at least two and a half million people who left Egypt to wander in the desert. This compares to a total estimated population of three and a half million people in Egypt before the Exodus. When the Jews entered Palastine (the promised land), to take the land, it is estimated that in total they numbered as many as 2 million. This is done by taking the totals of the men of war from all the tribes of Israel listed in scripture when they were numbered, which were all males 20 and upward. Figure as many women, at least, plus a kid or so, and the number mushrooms up to 2 million even by conservative estimates. That's a pretty big invading force in those days! This was about 1451 b.c.
Joshua. Moses was supposed to, but the people balked because a lack of faith. After Moses death, Joshua led the people into the promised land. Read more in the book of Joshua.… Moses was not allowed to enter the promised land because he disobeyed God's command to him. He struck a rock to bring forth water when God told him to speak to it.
the promised land is in canaan
Have a look at Genesis 17:8, Genesis 26:3-4, Genesis 29:13-15, and Genesis 35:11-12, and then we'll talk.
God told Moses to lead them there, and ultimately gave the charge over to Joshua to lead them in. An earlier opportunity was rejected by Israel in disbelief that God co…uld protect them from the fearsome Canaanites, so they wandered in the wilderness 40 years. Only their children entered in, yet with being taught by their parents the deliverance from Egypt was to be celebrated and remembered always, as God had instructed them in His Law.
The promised land is heaven.
Around two million, since the men numbered 600,000 (Numbers ch.26)and to that must be added women and children.
