004:013:001
And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,


004:013:002
Send thou men,
that they may search the land of Canaan,
which I give unto the children of Israel:
of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man,
every one a ruler among them.


004:013:003
And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran:
all those men were heads of the children of Israel.


004:013:004
And these were their names:
of the tribe of Reuben,
Shammua the son of Zaccur.


004:013:005
Of the tribe of Simeon,
Shaphat the son of Hori.


004:013:006

namely,

004:013:012
Of the tribe of Dan,

004:013:013

004:013:015

004:013:016
These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land.
And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.


004:013:017
And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan,
and said unto them,
Get you up this way southward,
and go up into the mountain:


004:013:018
And see the land,
what it is,
and the people that dwelleth therein,
whether they be strong or weak,
few or many;


004:013:019
And what the land is that they dwell in,
whether it be good or bad;
and what cities they be that they dwell in,
whether in tents,
or in strong holds;


004:013:020
And what the land is,
whether it be fat or lean,
whether there be wood therein,
or not.
And be ye of good courage,
and bring of the fruit of the land.
Now the time was the time of the firstripe grapes.


004:013:021
So they went up,
and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob,
as men come to Hamath.


004:013:022
And they ascended by the south,
and came unto Hebron;
where Ahiman,
Sheshai,
and Talmai,
the children of Anak,
were.
(Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)


004:013:023
And they came unto the brook of Eshcol,
and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes,
and they bare it between two upon a staff;
and they brought of the pomegranates,
and of the figs.


004:013:024
The place was called the brook Eshcol,
because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.


004:013:025
And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.


004:013:026
And they went and came to Moses,
and to Aaron,
and to all the congregation of the children of Israel,
unto the wilderness of Paran,
to Kadesh;
and brought back word unto them,
and unto all the congregation,
and shewed them the fruit of the land.


004:013:027
And they told him,
and said,
We came unto the land whither thou sentest us,
and surely it floweth with milk and honey;
and this is the fruit of it.


004:013:028
Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land,
and the cities are walled,
and very great:
and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.


004:013:029
The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south:
and the Hittites,
and the Jebusites,
and the Amorites,
dwell in the mountains:
and the Canaanites dwell by the sea,
and by the coast of Jordan.


004:013:030
And Caleb stilled the people before Moses,
and said,
Let us go up at once,
and possess it;
for we are well able to overcome it.


004:013:031
But the men that went up with him said,
We be not able to go up against the people;
for they are stronger than we.


004:013:032
And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel,
saying,
The land,
through which we have gone to search it,
is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof;
and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.


004:013:033
And there we saw the giants,
the sons of Anak,
which come of the giants:
and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers,
and so we were in their sight.
