After the Prophet Musa and Harun, to pass, years long with no shocking events. Human life without the guidance and tutelage of an Apostle. The Children of Israel were expelled from the country because they refuse to Torah scripture. When they no longer heed the teachings of the Torah that Moses handed down.
