NUM 13:17 Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go up this way by the South, and go up into the hill-country:
NUM 13:18 and see the land, what it is; and the people who dwell therein, whether they are strong or weak, whether they are few or many;
NUM 13:19 and what the land is that they dwell in, whether it is good or bad; and what cities they are that they dwell in, whether in camps, or in strongholds;
NUM 13:20 and what the land is, whether it is fat or lean, whether there is wood therein, or not. Be of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the first-ripe grapes.
NUM 13:21 So they went up, and spied out the land from the wilderness of Zin to Rehob, to the entrance of Hamath.
NUM 13:22 They went up by the South, and came to Hebron; and Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were there. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
NUM 13:23 They came to the valley of Eshcol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bore it on a staff between two; [they brought] also of the pomegranates, and of the figs.
NUM 13:24 That place was called the valley of Eshcol, because of the cluster which the children of Israel cut down from there.
NUM 13:25 They returned from spying out the land at the end of forty days.
NUM 13:26 They went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word to them, and to all the congregation, and shown them the fruit of the land.
NUM 13:27 They told him, and said, We came to the land where you sent us; and surely it flows with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
NUM 13:28 However the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
NUM 13:29 Amalek dwells in the land of the South: and the Hittite, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, dwell in the hill-country; and the Canaanite dwells by the sea, and along by the side of the Jordan.
NUM 13:30 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.
NUM 13:31 But the men who went up with him said, We aren't able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
NUM 13:32 They brought up an evil report of the land which they had spied out to the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that eats up the inhabitants of it; and all the people who we saw in it are men of great stature.
NUM 13:33 There we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
