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.”

Numbers 13:21

Context
The Spies’ Activities

13:21 So they went up and investigated the land from the wilderness of Zin to Rehob, 4  at the entrance of Hamath. 5 

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.”

4 sn Zin is on the southern edge of the land, but Rehob is far north, near Mount Hermon. The spies covered all the land.

5 tn The idiom uses the infinitive construct: “to enter Hamath,” meaning, “on the way that people go to Hamath.”
