Bible: Numbers 13:17-20

The Spies’ Instructions

13:17 When Moses sent 1  them to investigate the land of Canaan, he told them, “Go up through the Negev, 2  and then go up into the hill country 13:18 and see 3  what the land is like, 4  and whether the people who live in it are strong or weak, few or many, 13:19 and whether the land they live in is good or bad, and whether the cities they inhabit are like camps or fortified cities, 13:20 and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether or not there are forests in it. And be brave, 5  and bring back some of the fruit of the land.” Now it was the time of year 6  for the first ripe grapes. 7
