Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 26 And they went to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the wilderness of Paran at Kadesh; and brought back word to them, and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.

 27 And they told Moses, "We went to the land where you sent us, and surely it flows with milk and honey; and this is its fruit.

 28 But the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are walled and very large; in addition we saw the children of Anak [giants] there.

 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and by the coast of Jordan.

 30 And Caleb silenced the people before Moses, and said, "Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it."

 31 But the other men that went up with Caleb [except Joshua] said, "We are not able to go up against the people because they are stronger than we are."

 32 And they brought up an evil report of the land that they had scouted to the children of Israel, saying, "The land, through which we have gone to scout, is a land that consumes its inhabitants; and all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature.

 33 And there we saw the giants [Nephilim], the sons of Anak, who descend from the giants; and to our own sight we seemed like grasshoppers [in smallness] compared to them, and we appeared the same in their sight.1

 1 All the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.

 2 All the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron; and the whole congregation said to them, "We wish to God that we had died in the land of Egypt," and "we wish to God we had died in this wilderness!

 3 And why has the LORD brought us to this land? To fall by the sword so that our wives and our children should be a prey? Is it not better for us to return into Egypt?"

 4 And they said one to another, "Let us select a captain and return into Egypt."

 5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

 6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of those who searched the land, rent their clothes;

 7 And they spoke to all the company of the children of Israel, saying, "The land, which we passed through to scout, is an exceedingly good land.

 8 If the LORD delights in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which flows with milk and honey.

 9 Only do not rebel against the LORD, neither fear the people of the land for they are bread for us; their defense has departed from them, and the LORD is with us; do not fear them.

 10 But all the congregation wanted to stone them [Joshua and Caleb] with stones.1 And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.
