And they went, and came to Moses, and to Aaron
They proceeded on their journey from Eshcol, till they came to the camp of Israel; and as soon as they came there, went directly to Moses and to Aaron, before they went into their own tents, as Aben Ezra observes:
and to all the congregation of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran,
that is, Kadeshbarnea, as appears from ( Joshua 14:7 ) ; called for brevity's sake Kadesh; but is by some thought to be different from the Kadesh in ( Numbers 20:1 ) ; to which the Israelites came not until thirty eight years after this time: this Kadesh was in the wilderness of Paran, and the same with Rithmah, or was near it, where the Israelites were now encamped, and had remained all the time the spies were gone: the Targums of Onkelos and Jonathan call this place Rekem, as they do in ( Genesis 16:14 ) ;
and brought back word unto them, and to all the congregation:
to Moses and Aaron, and the principal heads of the body of the people assembled together: to these they related an account of their tour through the land of Canaan, what they had met with, and what observations they had made, agreeably to the instructions that had been given them when they set out:
and showed them the fruit of the land;
which they had brought with them, the bunch of grapes, pomegranates, and figs.
