Numbers 13:2

Context
13:2 “Send out men to investigate 1  the land of Canaan, which I am giving 2  to the Israelites. You are to send one man from each ancestral tribe, 3  each one a leader among them.”

1 tn The imperfect tense with the conjunction is here subordinated to the preceding imperative to form the purpose clause. It can thus be translated “send…to investigate.”

2 tn The participle here should be given a future interpretation, meaning “which I am about to give” or “which I am going to give.”

3 tn Heb “one man one man of the tribe of his fathers.”
