    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 106:24

    Yea, they despised the pleasant land - Margin, as in Hebrew, "land of desire." That is, a country "to be desired," - a country whose situation, climate, productions, made it desirable as a place of abode. Such Palestine was always represented to be to the children of Israel (Leviticus 20:24; Numbers 13:27; Numbers 14:8; Numbers 16:14; Deuteronomy 6:3; Deuteronomy 11:9; et al.;) but this land had to them, at the time here referred to, no attractions, and they rather desired to return again to Egypt; Numbers 11:5.

    They believed not his word - His assurance in regard to the land to which they were going.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 106:24

    106:24 Despised - Preferring Egypt, and their former bondage, before it, Numb 14:3,4.
