1THE LORD said to Moses,

2“Send men out to explore Canaan, the land which I am going to give to the Israelites; from each ancestral tribe send one man, a man of high rank.”

3So at the LORD's command Moses sent them out from the wilderness of Paran, all of them leading men among the Israelites.

4These were their names: from the tribe of Reuben, Shammua son of Zaccur;

5from the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat son of Hori;

6from the tribe of Judah, Caleb son of Jephunneh;

7from the tribe of Issachar, Igal son of Joseph;

8from the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea son of Nun;

9from the tribe of Benjamin, Palti son of Raphu;

10from the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel son of Sodi;

11from the tribe of Joseph (that is from the tribe of Manasseh), Gaddi son of Susi;

12from the tribe of Dan, Ammiel son of Gemalli;

13from the tribe of Asher, Sethur son of Michael;

14from the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi son of Vophsi;

15from the tribe of Gad, Geuel son of Machi.

16Those are the names of the men whom Moses sent to explore the land. But Moses named the son of Nun Joshua, instead of Hoshea.

17When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, “Make your way up by the Negeb, up into the hill-country,

18and see what the land is like, and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many.

19See whether the country in which they live is easy or difficult, and whether their towns are open or fortified.

20Is the land fertile or barren, and is it wooded or not? Go boldly in and bring some of its fruit.” It was the season when the first grapes were ripe.

21They went up and explored the country from the wilderness of Zin as far as Rehob by Lebo-hamath.

22Going up by the Negeb they came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, were living. (Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)

23They came to the wadi Eshcol, and there they cut a branch with a single bunch of grapes, which they carried on a pole between two of them; they also picked pomegranates and figs.

24That place was named the wadi Eshcol from the bunch of grapes the Israelites cut there.

25After forty days they returned from exploring the country

26and, coming back to Moses and Aaron and the whole community of Israelites at Kadesh in the wilderness of Paran, they made their report, and showed them the fruit of the country.

27They gave Moses this account: “We made our way into the land to which you sent us. It is flowing with milk and honey, and here is the fruit it grows;

28but its inhabitants are formidable, and the towns are fortified and very large; indeed, we saw there the descendants of Anak.

29We also saw the Amalekites who live in the Negeb, Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites who live in the hill-country, and the Canaanites who live by the sea and along the Jordan.”

30Caleb silenced the people for Moses. “Let us go up at once and occupy the country,” he said; “we are well able to conquer it.”

31But the men who had gone with him said, “No, we cannot attack these people; they are too strong for us.”

32Their report to the Israelites about the land which they had explored was discouraging: “The country we explored”, they said, “will swallow up any who go to live in it. All the people we saw there are men of gigantic stature.

33When we set eyes on the Nephilim (the sons of Anak belong to the Nephilim) we felt no bigger than grasshoppers; and that is how we must have been in their eyes.”
