"...because you broke faith with Me in the midst of the sons of Israel at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin, because you did not treat Me as holy in the midst of the sons of Israel. 52 "For you shall see the land at a distance, but you shall not go there, into the land which I am giving the sons of Israel." Deuteronomy 32:48-52 (NAS)

Moses would not enter the promised land

When Moses broke faith or transgressed against God at the waters of Meribah-kadesh, God decided at that time that He would not allow Moses to enter the promised land.  In verse 52 above, God reminds Moses that he would "not go there"...but instead would just "see the land at a distance."

How did Moses break faith with God?
