The names of the men who were sent to search the land.
Numbers 13:1 Then spake Yahweh unto Moses, saying: Numbers 13:2 Send for thee men, and let them spy out the land of Canaan, which I, am giving unto the sons of Israel,one man each, for the tribe of his fathers, shalt thou send, each one a prince among them. Numbers 13:3 So then Moses sent them out of the desert of Paran, at the bidding of Yahweh,all of them, great men, heads of the sons of Israel, were they. Numbers 13:4 And, these, are their names,Of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua, son of Zaccur; Numbers 13:5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat, son of Hori; Numbers 13:6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb, son of Jephunneh; Numbers 13:7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal, son of Joseph; Numbers 13:8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea, son of Nun; Numbers 13:9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti, son of Raphu; Numbers 13:10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel, son of Sodi; Numbers 13:11 Of the tribe of Josephof the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi, son of Susi; Numbers 13:12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel, son of Gemalli; Numbers 13:13 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur, son of Michael; Numbers 13:14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi, son of Vophsi; Numbers 13:15 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel, son of Machi. Numbers 13:16 These, are the names of the men, whom Moses sent, to spy out the land,but Moses called Hoshea son of Nun, Joshua.
Numbers 13:17 So Moses sent them, to spy out the land of Canaan,and said unto themGo up, here, in the South, Yea ye shall go up the mountain; Numbers 13:18 And shall see the land, what it is,And the people that dwell thereupon. Whether they are, strong, or weak, Whether they are, few, or, many; Numbers 13:19 And what, the land, is, wherein they dwell, Whether it is, good, or, bad,And the cities within which they dwell, Whether in camps, or in strongholds; Numbers 13:20 And what the land is, Whether, fat, or, lean, Whether there is timber therein, or is not. Then shall ye pluck up courage, and take of the fruit of the land. Now, the days, were the days of the firstfruits of grapes.
Numbers 13:21 So they went up, and spied out the land,from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, at the entering in of Hamath. Numbers 13:22 Yea they went up in the South, and entered as far as Hebron, and, there, were Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, descendants of the Anak. Now, Hebron, was built, seven years, before Zoan of Egypt. Numbers 13:23 And they entered as far as the ravine of Eschol, and cut down, from thence, a branch with one cluster of grapes, and bare it on a pole, between two,also of the pomegranates and of the figs. Numbers 13:24 That place, was called, The Ravine of Eschol [="Cluster-ravine"]on account of the cluster, which was cut down from thence by the sons of Israel. Numbers 13:25 And they returned from spying out the land,at the end of forty days.
Numbers 13:26 So they took their journey, and came in unto Moses and unto Aaron, and unto all the assembly of the sons of Israel, into the wilderness of Paran, towards Kadesh,and brought back wordunto them, and unto all the assembly, and showed them the fruit of the land. Numbers 13:27 And they recounted unto him, and said, We entered into the land whither thou didst send us,and surely it doth, flow with milk and honey, and, this, is the fruit thereof. Numbers 13:28 Nevertheless surely, mighty, are the people that dwell in the land,and, the cities, walled in, exceeding great, moreover also, the descendants of the Anak, saw we there. Numbers 13:29 Amalek, dwelleth in the land of the South; And, the Hittite and the Jebusite and the Amorite, dwell in the mountain, And, the Canaanite, dwelleth by the sea, and by the side of the Jordan. Numbers 13:30 And Caleb stilled the people unto Moses,and said unto themLet us go, straight up, and possess it, for we shall, surely prevail, against it. Numbers 13:31 But, the men who went up with him, said, We cannot go up against the people,for, stronger, are they than we. Numbers 13:32 So they sent forth a rumour of the land which they had spied out, among the sons of Israel, saying,As touching the land through which we passed, to spy it out, it is, land that eateth up them who dwell therein, And, all the people that we saw in the midst thereof, were men of great stature. Numbers 13:33 And, there, saw we the giants, sons of Anak, [descended] of the giants,And we were, in our own eyes, as grasshoppers, And, so, were we in their eyes.
