Deuteronomy 1:45 (ESV)

45 And you returned and wept before the LORD, but the LORD did not listen to your voice or give ear to you.

Not unlike spoiled children whose acting out got them nowhere, Israel returned to Kadesh and wept before the Lord. The twice-repeated fact that God did not listen to their cries of anguish is in a way an echo of their earlier refusal to listen to him (Deuteronomy 1:43).
