NIV 17 When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, "Go up through the Negev and on into the hill country. NLT 18 See what the land is like and find out whether the people living there are 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. NLT 19 What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad? Do their towns have walls or are they unprotected? 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? NLT 20 How is the soil? Is it fertile or poor? Are there many trees? Enter the land boldly, and bring back samples of the crops you see." (It happened to be the season for harvesting the first ripe grapes.) NIV 20 How is the soil? Is it fertile or poor? Are there trees on it or not? Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land." (It was the season for the first ripe grapes.) NLT 21 So they went up and explored the land from the wilderness of Zin as far as Rehob, near Lebo-hamath. NIV 21 So they went up and explored the land from the Desert of Zin as far as Rehob, toward Lebo Hamath.

(The ancient town of Hebron was founded seven years before the Egyptian city of Zoan.) NIV 22 They went up through the Negev and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, lived. (Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)

Two of them carried it on a pole between them, along with some pomegranates and figs. NLT 24 At that time the Israelites renamed the valley Eshcol -- "cluster" -- because of the cluster of grapes they had cut there. NIV 24 That place was called the Valley of Eshcol because of the cluster of grapes the Israelites cut off there. NLT 25 After exploring the land for forty days, the men returned NIV 25 At the end of forty days they returned from exploring the land. NLT 26 to Moses, Aaron, and the people of Israel at Kadesh in the wilderness of Paran. They reported to the whole community what they had seen and showed them the fruit they had taken from the land. NIV 26 They came back to Moses and Aaron and the whole Israelite community at Kadesh in the Desert of Paran. There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land. NLT 27 This was their report to Moses: "We arrived in the land you sent us to see, and it is indeed a magnificent country -- a land flowing with milk and honey. Here is some of its fruit as proof. 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. NLT 28 But the people living there are powerful, and their cities and towns are fortified and very large. We also saw the descendants of Anak who are living 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. NLT 29 The Amalekites live in the Negev, and the Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites live in the hill country. The Canaanites live along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and along the Jordan Valley." NIV 29 The Amalekites live in the Negev; the Hittites, Jebusites and Amorites live in the hill country; and the Canaanites live near the sea and along the Jordan." NLT 30 But Caleb tried to encourage the people as they stood before Moses. "Let's go at once to take the land," he said. "We can certainly conquer it!" NIV 30 Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, "We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it." NLT 31 But the other men who had explored the land with him answered, "We can't go up against them! They are stronger than we are!" NIV 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, "We can't attack those people; they are stronger than we are." NLT 32 So they spread discouraging reports about the land among the Israelites: "The land we explored will swallow up any who go to live there. All the people we saw were huge. NIV 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. NLT 33 We even saw giants there, the descendants of Anak. We felt like grasshoppers next to them, and that's what we looked like to them!" NIV 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."
