SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:22 Y llegasteis a mí todos vosotros, y dijisteis: Enviemos varones delante de nosotros, que nos reconozcan la tierra y nos traigan de vuelta razón del camino por donde hemos de subir, y de las ciudades adonde hemos de llegar.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 1:22 Verse 22. We will send men before us] See on Numbers 13.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 22. And ye came near unto me everyone of you , etc.] Not every individual of them, but the heads of their tribes, that represented them; this is not to be understood of the present generation personally, but of their fathers, who all died in the wilderness, save a very few of them; but they being the same people and nation, it is so expressed: and said, we will send men before us ; that is, they thought it was proper and prudent so to do, and came to Moses to consult him about it; for we are not to suppose that they had determined upon it, whether he approved of it or not: and they shall search us out the land : that they might know what sort of land it was, whether good or bad, fruitful or not, and whether woody or not: (see Numbers 13:19,20) and bring us word again by what way we must go up ; or, “concerning the way in which we must go”; which is the best way of entering it, most easy and accessible, where the passes are most open and least dangerous: and into what cities we shall come ; which it would be the most proper to attack and subdue first.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 19-46 - Moses reminds the Israelites of their march from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea, through that great and terrible wilderness. He shows ho near they were to a happy settlement in Canaan. It will aggravate the eternal ruin of hypocrites, that they were not far from the kingdom of God. As if it were not enough that they were sure of their God befor them, they would send men before them. Never any looked into the Holy Land, but they must own it to be a good land. And was there any caus to distrust this God? An unbelieving heart was at the bottom of all this. All disobedience to God's laws, and distrust of his power an goodness, flow from disbelief of his word, as all true obedienc springs from faith. It is profitable for us to divide our past live into distinct periods; to give thanks to God for the mercies we have received in each, to confess and seek the forgiveness of all the sin we can remember; and thus to renew our acceptance of God's salvation and our surrender of ourselves to his service. Our own plans seldo avail to good purpose; while courage in the exercise of faith, and in the path of duty, enables the believer to follow the Lord fully, to disregard all that opposes, to triumph over all opposition, and to tak firm hold upon the promised blessings __________________________________________________________________
