Moses sends twelve spies to the land of Canaan.
Which way did they go and why? How is Eretz Israel like merchandise?
Moses asked the spies to bring back the fruit of the Land of Israel? Why didn’t Joshua and Caleb help the other ten spies carry the fruit? What type of fruit was Moses asking for?
Forty days later they return, carrying a huge cluster of grapes, a pomegranate and a fig, to report on a lush and bountiful land. But ten of the spies warn that the inhabitants of the land are giants and warriors “more powerful than we”; only Caleb and Joshua insist that the land can be conquered, as G‑d has commanded.
The people weep that they’d rather return to Egypt. G‑d decrees that Israel’s entry into the Land shall be delayed forty years, during which time that entire generation will die out in the desert. A group of remorseful Jews storm the mountain on the border of the Land, and are routed by the Amalekites and Canaanites.
What is the real fruit of Eretz Israel?
