22 Then all of you came to me and said, “Let us send men ahead
to spy out the land for us and bring back a report
about the route we are to take and
the towns we will come to.”
23 The idea seemed good to me; so I
selected twelve of you, one man from each tribe.
24 They left and went up into the hill country,
and came to the Valley of Eshcol and explored it.
25 Taking with them some of the fruit of the land,
they brought it down to us and reported,
“It is a good land that the Lord
our God is giving us.”
