spies showing the fertility of Canaan.
And they came
unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch
with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon
a staff; and they brought of the pomengranates, and
of the figs. The place was called the brook Eshcol, because
of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut
down from thence. And they returned from searching of the
land after forty days. And they went and came to Moses, and
to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel,
unto the wildernes of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word
unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them
the fruit of the land. (KJV)
