Numbers 13


1  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

2  Send7971 thou men,376 that they may search8446 853 the land776 of Canaan,3667 which834 I589 give5414 unto the children1121 of Israel:3478 of every tribe4294 of their fathers1 shall ye send7971 a259 man,376 every one3605 a ruler5387 among them.

3  And Moses4872 by5921 the commandment6310 of the LORD3068 sent7971 them from the wilderness4480 4057 of Paran:6290 all3605 those1992 men376 were heads7218 of the children1121 of Israel.3478

4  And these428 were their names:8034 of the tribe4294 of Reuben,7205 Shammua8051 the son1121 of Zaccur.2139

5  Of the tribe4294 of Simeon,8095 Shaphat8202 the son1121 of Hori.2753

6  Of the tribe4294 of Judah,3063 Caleb3612 the son1121 of Jephunneh.3312

7  Of the tribe4294 of Issachar,3485 Igal3008 the son1121 of Joseph.3130

8  Of the tribe4294 of Ephraim,669 Oshea1954 the son1121 of Nun.5126

9  Of the tribe4294 of Benjamin,1144 Palti6406 the son1121 of Raphu.7505

10  Of the tribe4294 of Zebulun,2074 Gaddiel1427 the son1121 of Sodi.5476

11  Of the tribe4294 of Joseph,3130 namely, of the tribe4294 of Manasseh,4519 Gaddi1426 the son1121 of Susi.5485

12  Of the tribe4294 of Dan,1835 Ammiel5988 the son1121 of Gemalli.1582

13  Of the tribe4294 of Asher,836 Sethur5639 the son1121 of Michael.4317

14  Of the tribe4294 of Naphtali,5321 Nahbi5147 the son1121 of Vophsi.2058

15  Of the tribe4294 of Gad,1410 Geuel1345 the son1121 of Machi.4352

16  These428 are the names8034 of the men376 which834 Moses4872 sent7971 to spy out8446 853 the land.776 And Moses4872 called7121 Oshea1954 the son1121 of Nun5126 Joshua.3091

17  And Moses4872 sent7971 them to spy out8446 853 the land776 of Canaan,3667 and said559 unto413 them, Get you up5927 this2088 way southward,5045 and go up5927 into854 the mountain:2022

18  And see7200 853 the land,776 what4100 it1931 is; and the people5971 that dwelleth3427 therein,5921 whether they1931 be strong2389 or weak,7504 few4592 or518 many;7227

19  And what4100 the land776 is that834 they1931 dwell3427 in whether it1931 be good2896 or518 bad;7451 and what4100 cities5892 they be that834 they1931 dwell3427 in,2007 whether in tents,4264 or518 in strongholds;4013

20  And what4100 the land776 is, whether it1931 be fat8082 or518 lean,7330 whether there be3426 wood6086 therein, or518 not.369 And be ye of good courage,2388 and bring3947 of the fruit4480 6529 of the land.776 Now the time3117 was the time3117 of the firstripe1061 grapes.6025

21  So they went up,5927 and searched8446 853 the land776 from the wilderness4480 4057 of Zin6790 unto5704 Rehob,7340 as men come935 to Hamath.2574

22  And they ascended5927 by the south,5045 and came935 unto5704 Hebron;2275 where8033 Ahiman,289 Sheshai,8344 and Talmai,8526 the children3211 of Anak,6061 were. (Now Hebron2275 was built1129 seven7651 years8141 before6440 Zoan6814 in Egypt.)4714

23  And they came935 unto5704 the brook5158 of Eshcol,812 and cut down3772 from thence4480 8033 a branch2156 with one259 cluster811 of grapes,6025 and they bore5375 it between two8147 upon a staff;4132 and they brought of4480 the pomegranates,7416 and of4480 the figs.8384

24  The place4725 was called7121 the brook5158 Eshcol,812 because5921 182 of the cluster of grapes811 which834 the children1121 of Israel3478 cut down3772 from thence.4480 8033

25  And they returned7725 from searching4480 8446 of the land776 after4480 7093 forty705 days.3117

26  And they went1980 and came935 to413 Moses,4872 and to413 Aaron,175 and to413 all3605 the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 unto413 the wilderness4057 of Paran,6290 to Kadesh;6946 and brought back7725 word1697 unto them, and unto all3605 the congregation,5712 and showed7200 them 853 the fruit6529 of the land.776

27  And they told5608 him, and said,559 We came935 unto413 the land776 whither834 thou sentest7971 us, and surely1571 it1931 floweth2100 with milk2461 and honey;1706 and this2088 is the fruit6529 of it.

28  Nevertheless657 3588 the people5971 be strong5794 that dwell3427 in the land,776 and the cities5892 are walled,1219 and very3966 great:1419 and moreover1571 we saw7200 the children3211 of Anak6061 there.8033

29  The Amalekites6003 dwell3427 in the land776 of the south:5045 and the Hittites,2850 and the Jebusites,2983 and the Amorites,567 dwell3427 in the mountains:2022 and the Canaanites3669 dwell3427 by5921 the sea,3220 and by5921 the coast3027 of Jordan.3383

30  And Caleb3612 stilled2013 853 the people5971 before413 Moses,4872 and said,559 Let us go up at once,5927 5927 and possess3423 it; for3588 we are well able3201 to overcome3201 it.

31  But the men376 that834 went up5927 with5973 him said,559 We be not able3201 3808 to go up5927 against413 the people;5971 for3588 they1931 are stronger2389 than4480 we.

32  And they brought up3318 an evil report1681 of the land776 which834 they had searched8446 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 saying,559 The land,776 through which834 we have gone5674 to search8446 it, is a land776 that1931 eateth up398 the inhabitants3427 thereof; and all3605 the people5971 that834 we saw7200 in8432 it are men376 of a great stature.4060

33  And there8033 we saw7200 853 the giants,5303 the sons1121 of Anak,6061 which come of4480 the giants:5303 and we were1961 in our own sight5869 as grasshoppers,2284 and so3651 we were1961 in their sight.5869


1 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

2 ἀπόστειλον σεαυτῷ ἄνδρας καὶ κατασκεψάσθωσαν τὴν γῆν τῶν Χαναναίων ἣν ἐγὼ δίδωμι τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ εἰς κατάσχεσιν ἄνδρα ἕνα κατὰ φυλὴν κατὰ δήμους πατριῶν αὐτῶν ἀποστελεῖς αὐτούς πάντα ἀρχηγὸν ἐξ αὐτῶν

3 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς Μωυσῆς ἐκ τῆς ἐρήμου Φαραν διὰ φωνῆς κυρίου πάντες ἄνδρες ἀρχηγοὶ υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὗτοι

4 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν τῆς φυλῆς Ρουβην Σαλαμιηλ υἱὸς Ζακχουρ

5 τῆς φυλῆς Συμεων Σαφατ υἱὸς Σουρι

6 τῆς φυλῆς Ιουδα Χαλεβ υἱὸς Ιεφοννη

7 τῆς φυλῆς Ισσαχαρ Ιγααλ υἱὸς Ιωσηφ

8 τῆς φυλῆς Εφραιμ Αυση υἱὸς Ναυη

9 τῆς φυλῆς Βενιαμιν Φαλτι υἱὸς Ραφου

10 τῆς φυλῆς Ζαβουλων Γουδιηλ υἱὸς Σουδι

11 τῆς φυλῆς Ιωσηφ τῶν υἱῶν Μανασση Γαδδι υἱὸς Σουσι

12 τῆς φυλῆς Δαν Αμιηλ υἱὸς Γαμαλι

13 τῆς φυλῆς Ασηρ Σαθουρ υἱὸς Μιχαηλ

14 τῆς φυλῆς Νεφθαλι Ναβι υἱὸς Ιαβι

15 τῆς φυλῆς Γαδ Γουδιηλ υἱὸς Μακχι

16 ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν ἀνδρῶν οὓς ἀπέστειλεν Μωυσῆς κατασκέψασθαι τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν Μωυσῆς τὸν Αυση υἱὸν Ναυη Ἰησοῦν

17 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς Μωυσῆς κατασκέψασθαι τὴν γῆν Χανααν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἀνάβητε ταύτῃ τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἀναβήσεσθε εἰς τὸ ὄρος

18 καὶ ὄψεσθε τὴν γῆν τίς ἐστιν καὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν ἐγκαθήμενον ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς εἰ ἰσχυρότερός ἐστιν ἢ ἀσθενής εἰ ὀλίγοι εἰσὶν ἢ πολλοί

19 καὶ τίς ἡ γῆ εἰς ἣν οὗτοι ἐγκάθηνται ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς εἰ καλή ἐστιν ἢ πονηρά καὶ τίνες αἱ πόλεις εἰς ἃς οὗτοι κατοικοῦσιν ἐν αὐταῖς εἰ ἐν τειχήρεσιν ἢ ἐν ἀτειχίστοις

20 καὶ τίς ἡ γῆ εἰ πίων ἢ παρειμένη εἰ ἔστιν ἐν αὐτῇ δένδρα ἢ οὔ καὶ προσκαρτερήσαντες λήμψεσθε ἀπὸ τῶν καρπῶν τῆς γῆς καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι ἡμέραι ἔαρος πρόδρομοι σταφυλῆς

21 καὶ ἀναβάντες κατεσκέψαντο τὴν γῆν ἀπὸ τῆς ἐρήμου Σιν ἕως Ρααβ εἰσπορευομένων Εφααθ

22 καὶ ἀνέβησαν κατὰ τὴν ἔρημον καὶ ἦλθον ἕως Χεβρων καὶ ἐκεῖ Αχιμαν καὶ Σεσσι καὶ Θελαμιν γενεαὶ Εναχ καὶ Χεβρων ἑπτὰ ἔτεσιν ᾠκοδομήθη πρὸ τοῦ Τάνιν Αἰγύπτου

23 καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἕως Φάραγγος βότρυος καὶ κατεσκέψαντο αὐτήν καὶ ἔκοψαν ἐκεῖθεν κλῆμα καὶ βότρυν σταφυλῆς ἕνα ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦραν αὐτὸν ἐπ᾽ ἀναφορεῦσιν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ῥοῶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν συκῶν

24 τὸν τόπον ἐκεῖνον ἐπωνόμασαν Φάραγξ βότρυος διὰ τὸν βότρυν ὃν ἔκοψαν ἐκεῖθεν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ

25 καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν ἐκεῖθεν κατασκεψάμενοι τὴν γῆν μετὰ τεσσαράκοντα ἡμέρας

26 καὶ πορευθέντες ἦλθον πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων καὶ πρὸς πᾶσαν συναγωγὴν υἱῶν Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν ἔρημον Φαραν Καδης καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν αὐτοῖς ῥῆμα καὶ πάσῃ τῇ συναγωγῇ καὶ ἔδειξαν τὸν καρπὸν τῆς γῆς

27 καὶ διηγήσαντο αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπαν ἤλθαμεν εἰς τὴν γῆν εἰς ἣν ἀπέστειλας ἡμᾶς γῆν ῥέουσαν γάλα καὶ μέλι καὶ οὗτος ὁ καρπὸς αὐτῆς

28 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ὅτι θρασὺ τὸ ἔθνος τὸ κατοικοῦν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ αἱ πόλεις ὀχυραὶ τετειχισμέναι καὶ μεγάλαι σφόδρα καὶ τὴν γενεὰν Εναχ ἑωράκαμεν ἐκεῖ

29 καὶ Αμαληκ κατοικεῖ ἐν τῇ γῇ τῇ πρὸς νότον καὶ ὁ Χετταῖος καὶ ὁ Ευαῖος καὶ ὁ Ιεβουσαῖος καὶ ὁ Αμορραῖος κατοικεῖ ἐν τῇ ὀρεινῇ καὶ ὁ Χαναναῖος κατοικεῖ παρὰ θάλασσαν καὶ παρὰ τὸν Ιορδάνην ποταμόν

30 καὶ κατεσιώπησεν Χαλεβ τὸν λαὸν πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ οὐχί ἀλλὰ ἀναβάντες ἀναβησόμεθα καὶ κατακληρονομήσομεν αὐτήν ὅτι δυνατοὶ δυνησόμεθα πρὸς αὐτούς

31 καὶ οἱ ἄνθρωποι οἱ συναναβάντες μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἶπαν οὐκ ἀναβαίνομεν ὅτι οὐ μὴ δυνώμεθα ἀναβῆναι πρὸς τὸ ἔθνος ὅτι ἰσχυρότερόν ἐστιν ἡμῶν μᾶλλον

32 καὶ ἐξήνεγκαν ἔκστασιν τῆς γῆς ἣν κατεσκέψαντο αὐτήν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ λέγοντες τὴν γῆν ἣν παρήλθομεν αὐτὴν κατασκέψασθαι γῆ κατέσθουσα τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς ἐστιν πᾶς ὁ λαός ὃν ἑωράκαμεν ἐν αὐτῇ ἄνδρες ὑπερμήκεις

33 καὶ ἐκεῖ ἑωράκαμεν τοὺς γίγαντας καὶ ἦμεν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν ὡσεὶ ἀκρίδες ἀλλὰ καὶ οὕτως ἦμεν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν

1 Profectusque est populus de Haseroth, fixis tentoriis in deserto Pharan.

2 Ibique locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

3 Mitte viros, qui considerent terram Chanaan, quam daturus sum filiis Israël, singulos de singulis tribubus, ex principibus.

4 Fecit Moyses quod Dominus imperaverat, de deserto Pharan mittens principes viros, quorum ista sunt nomina.

5 De tribu Ruben, Sammua filium Zechur.

6 De tribu Simeon, Saphat filium Huri.

7 De tribu Juda, Caleb filium Jephone.

8 De tribu Issachar, Igal filium Joseph.

9 De tribu Ephraim, Osee filium Nun.

10 De tribu Benjamin, Phalti filium Raphu.

11 De tribu Zabulon, Geddiel filium Sodi.

12 De tribu Joseph, sceptri Manasse, Gaddi filium Susi.

13 De tribu Dan, Ammiel filium Gemalli.

14 De tribu Aser, Sthur filium Michaël.

15 De tribu Nephthali, Nahabi filium Vapsi.

16 De tribu Gad, Guel filium Machi.

17 Hæc sunt nomina virorum, quos misit Moyses ad considerandam terram: vocavitque Osee filium Nun, Josue.

18 Misit ergo eos Moyses ad considerandam terram Chanaan, et dixit ad eos: Ascendite per meridianam plagam. Cumque veneritis ad montes,

19 considerate terram, qualis sit: et populum qui habitator est ejus, utrum fortis sit an infirmus: si pauci numero an plures:

20 ipsa terra, bona an mala: urbes quales, muratæ an absque muris:

21 humus, pinguis an sterilis, nemorosa an absque arboribus. Confortamini, et afferte nobis de fructibus terræ. Erat autem tempus quando jam præcoquæ uvæ vesci possunt.

22 Cumque ascendissent, exploraverunt terram a deserto Sin, usque Rohob intrantibus Emath.

23 Ascenderuntque ad meridiem, et venerunt in Hebron, ubi erant Achiman et Sisai et Tholmai filii Enac: nam Hebron septem annis ante Tanim urbem Ægypti condita est.

24 Pergentesque usque ad Torrentem botri, absciderunt palmitem cum uva sua, quem portaverunt in vecte duo viri. De malis quoque granatis et de ficis loci illius tulerunt:

25 qui appellatus est Nehelescol, id est Torrens botri, eo quod botrum portassent inde filii Israël.

26 Reversique exploratores terræ post quadraginta dies, omni regione circuita,

27 venerunt ad Moysen et Aaron et ad omnem cœtum filiorum Israël in desertum Pharan, quod est in Cades. Locutique eis et omni multitudini ostenderunt fructus terræ:

28 et narraverunt, dicentes: Venimus in terram, ad quam misisti nos, quæ revera fluit lacte et melle, ut ex his fructibus cognosci potest:

29 sed cultores fortissimos habet, et urbes grandes atque muratas. Stirpem Enac vidimus ibi.

30 Amalec habitat in meridie, Hethæus et Jebusæus et Amorrhæus in montanis: Chananæus vero moratur juxta mare et circa fluenta Jordanis.

31 Inter hæc Caleb compescens murmur populi, qui oriebatur contra Moysen, ait: Ascendamus, et possideamus terram, quoniam poterimus obtinere eam.
