|1||The names of the men who were sent to search the land.|
Numbers 13:21 (King James Version)
So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
- from the wilderness of Zin
- The wilderness of Zin, is different from that called Sin. ( Exodus 16:1 .) The latter was near Egypt, but the former was near
- Kadesh Barnea, not far from the borders of Canaan. It seems to be the valley mentioned by Burckhardt; which, under the names of El Ghor and El Araba, form a continuation of the valley of the Jordan, extending from the Dead sea to the eastern branch of the Red sea. The whole plain presents to the view an appearance of shifting sands, whose surface is broken by innumerable undulations and low hills. A few talk, tamarisk, and rethem trees grow among the sand hills; but the depth of sand precludes all vegetation of herbage. 20:1 27:14 33:36 Numbers 34:3 Numbers 34:4 Deuteronomy 32:51 ; Joshua 15:1
- Rehob was a city, afterwards given to the tribe of Asher, situated near mount Lebanon, at the northern extremity of the Promised Land, on the road which leads to Hamath, and west of Laish or Dan: compare Judges 1:31 ; 18:28 ; Joshua 19:28 .
