Deuteronomy 1:36

Context
1:36 The exception is Caleb son of Jephunneh; 1  he will see it and I will give him and his descendants the territory on which he has walked, because he has wholeheartedly followed me.” 2 

Deuteronomy 1:38

Context
1:38 However, Joshua son of Nun, your assistant, 3  will go. Encourage him, because he will enable Israel to inherit the land. 4 

1 sn Caleb had, with Joshua, brought back to Israel a minority report from Canaan urging a conquest of the land, for he was confident of the Lord’s power (Num 13:6, 8, 16, 30; 14:30, 38).

2 tn Heb “the Lord.” The pronoun (“me”) has been employed in the translation, since it sounds strange to an English reader for the Lord to speak about himself in third person.

3 tn Heb “the one who stands before you”; NAB “your aide”; TEV “your helper.”

4 tn Heb “it”; the referent (the land) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
