KJV 18 And see the land, what it is; and the people that dwelleth therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many; NIV 18 See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many. KJV 19 And what the land is that they dwell in , whether it be good or bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds; NIV 19 What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad? What kind of towns do they live in? Are they unwalled or fortified? KJV 20 And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not.

Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land." (It was the season for the first ripe grapes.) KJV 21 So they went up , and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.

There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land. KJV 27 And they told him, and said , We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. NIV 27 They gave Moses this account: "We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. KJV 28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled , and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. NIV 28 But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. KJV 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
