Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And LORD JEHOVAH spoke with Moshe and said to him: 2“Send men; they shall explore the land of Canaan that I give to the children of Israel; every Leader that is among them, send one man from the tribe of his fathers.” 3And Moshe sent them from the wilderness of Paran by the word of the mouth of LORD JEHOVAH; all of the men were Leaders of Israel. 4And these are the names from the tribe of Rubil: Shamua son of Zakor. 5From the tribe of Shemon: Shaphat son of Khadi. 6From the tribe of Yehuda: Kalab son of Yuphana. 7From the tribe of Issakar: Negayel son of Yoseph. 8From the tribe of Aphreim: Husha son of Nun. 9From the tribe of Benyamin: Palti son of Daphu. 10From the tribe of Zebulon: Gaddiel son of Suri. 11From the tribe of Yoseph of the tribe of Menasheh: Gaddi son of Susi. 12From the tribe of Dan: Gamaliel son of Gamli. 13From the tribe of Ashayr: Sethur son of Malkiel. 14From the tribe of Naphtali: Nakhbi son of Waphsi. 15From the tribe of Gad: Gwayel son of Makir. 16These are the names of the men whom Moshe sent to spy the land, and Moshe called Husha, son of Nun, Yeshua.

17And Moshe sent them to spy the land of Canaan and said to them: “Come up in this way to the south and go up the mountain: 18And see the land, what it is, and the people dwelling in it, if it is strong or weak, or it is few or many. 19And what the land is which they inhabit. 20If it is fertile or trees are in it or not.” And they were strengthened and carried some fruit of the land, and the days were the days of first fruits of grapes.

21And they went up and explored the land from the wilderness of Tsin and unto to Rekhob, which is in the entrance of Khamath. 22And they came up to the south and they came unto Khebron and Akhiman; and Shishay and Tulmay, sons of the giants, were there, and Khebron was built seven years before Tsaan that is in Egypt.

23And they came unto the valley of SegulaClusters and they cut from there a vine shoot and one cluster of grapes and they took it away on a pole between two and some pomegranates and some figs. 24And they called that place the valley of SegulaClusters because of the clusters that sons of Israel had picked from there.

25And they returned from the exploring of the land after forty days. 26And they came to Moshe and to Ahron and to all of the assembly of the children of Israel to the wilderness of Paran, to Raqem, and they returned a report to him and to all of the assembly, and they showed them the fruit of the land. 27And they related to him and they said: “We went on to the land where you sent us, and it flows milk and honey and these are its fruit. 28However the people dwelling in the land is strong and the towns are fortified and very great, also we saw the sons of the giants there. 29Amelik dwells in the land of the south and the Hittites and Yebusites and Amorites dwell in the mountains and Canaanites dwelt on the side of the sea and upon the side of the Jordan.”

30And Kalab silenced the people in the name of Moshe and said: “Let us surely go up and possess it because we can prevail.” 31And the men who went up with him were saying, “We cannot go up against the people because it is stronger than we.” 32And those who spied out sent out the report of the land to the children of Israel and they said to them: “The land in which we passed through and spied out, the land consumes its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw within it are men of stature. 33And there we saw giants, sons of giants who are from the giants, and we were in their eyes like grasshoppers, thus we were in their eyes.”
