← Numbers 12   Numbers 14 →

1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Send for thyself men, and they will explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the sons of Israel; one man, one man for each tribe of his father you shall Send, every one a chief among them.

3 And Moses by the mouth of Jehovah sent them from the wilderness of Paran; all those men were heads of the sons of Israel.

4 And these were their names; of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur.

5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.

6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.

8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun.

9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.

10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.

11 Of the tribe of Joseph, of the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi.

12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.

13 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.

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

16 These are the names of the men who Moses sent to explore the land. And Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun Joshua*.

17 And Moses sent them to explore the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go· you ·up this way into the south, and go·​·up·​·to the mountain;

18 and see the land, what it is, and the people who dwells upon it, whether it be firm or slack, few or many;

19 and what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or evil; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in camps, or in fortresses;

20 and what the land is, whether it be with·​·oil or lean, whether there be wood in it, or not. And make· yourselves ·firm, and take of the fruit of the land. And the days were the days of the firstfruits of the grapes.

21 And they went·​·up, and explored the land from the wilderness of Zin even·​·to Rehob, to come·​·into Ḥamath.

22 And they went·​·up by the south, and came even·​·to Hebron; and Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, born of Anak, were there. And Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.

23 And they came to the brook of Eshcol, and cut·​·off from thence a sprig and one cluster of grapes, and they bore it between two on a pole*; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

24 That place was called the brook Eshcol*, on account of the cluster of grapes which the sons of Israel cut·​·off from thence.

25 And they returned from exploring the land at the end of forty days.

26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, toward Kadesh; and returned with word to them, and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.

27 And they described it to him, and said, We came to the land whither thou didst send us, and it even flows with milk and honey; and this is her fruit.

28 Nonetheless, the people are strong dwelling in the land, and the cities are fortified, and very great; and also we saw the children of Anak there.

29 Amalek dwells 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 side* of the Jordan.

30 And Caleb made the people keep·​·silent before Moses, and said, Going·​·up let us go·​·up, and possess it; for prevailing we will prevail against it.

31 But the men who went·​·up with him said, We be· not ·able to go·​·up against the people; for they are stronger* than we.

32 And they brought·​·out an evil·​·report of the land which they had explored to the sons of Israel, saying, The land, which we have passed·​·through to explore it, it is a land that eats·​·up those dwelling·​·in her; and all the people that we saw in the midst of it are men of measure.

33 And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who are from the Nephilim; and we were in our own eyes as grasshoppers, and so we were in their eyes.

Explanation of Numbers 13      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-3. On self-examination, by means of truths, and by means of Divine light from the Lord's Divine Human, of the inmost of his life by man.

Verses 4-16. Concerning the general truths by which this examination is effected.

Verses 17-21. The extension of it is from where truth and good are in obscurity and coldness through the multiplication of truths advancing to a zealous state of natural good and its truths confirmed in ultimates.

Verses 22-25. It leads, also, by means of interior light and perception to the discovery of persuasions of falsity from the pride of selfish love, as well as to the perception of charity in its general form of natural truth and natural good, involving a complete state of trial and temptation.

Verses 26-33. The effect of this examination, through instruction, upon the evil and upon the good.
