Numbers 13:24

Context
13:24 That place was called 1  the Eshcol Valley, 2  because of the cluster 3  of grapes that the Israelites cut from there.

1 tn The verb is rendered as a passive because there is no expressed subject.

2 tn Or “Wadi Eshcol.” The translation “brook” is too generous; the Hebrew term refers to a river bed, a ravine or valley through which torrents of rain would rush in the rainy season; at other times it might be completely dry.

3 tn The word “Eshcol” is drawn from the Hebrew expression concerning the “cluster of grapes.” The word is probably retained in the name Burj Haskeh, two miles north of Damascus.
