Numbers 13:26

Context
The Spies’ Reports

13:26 They came back 3  to Moses and Aaron and to the whole community of the Israelites in the wilderness of Paran at Kadesh. 4  They reported 5  to the whole community and showed the fruit of the land.

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

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

3 tn The construction literally has “and they went and they entered,” which may be smoothed out as a verbal hendiadys, the one verb modifying the other.

4 sn Kadesh is Ain Qadeis, about 50 miles (83 km) south of Beer Sheba. It is called Kadesh-barnea in Num 32:8.

5 tn Heb “They brought back word”; the verb is the Hiphil preterite of שׁוּב (shuv).
