Мысли вслух на Num 13:1-34

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses saying, 2 “Send out for yourself men so that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I am going to give to the sons of Israel; you shall send a man from each of their fathers’ tribes, every one a leader among them.” 3 So Moses sent them from the wilderness of Paran at thea Lit mouthcommand of the LORD, all of them men who were heads of the sons of Israel. 4 These then were their names: from the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur; 5 from the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori; 6 from the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh; 7 from the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph; 8 from the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun; 9 from the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu; 10 from the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi; 11 from the tribe of Joseph, from the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi; 12 from the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli; 13 from the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael; 14 from the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi; 15 from the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. 16 These are the names of the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land; but Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun, Joshua.
17 When Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, he said to them, “Go upb Lit herethere into thec I.e. South country, and so throughout the chNegev; then go up into the hill country. 18 See what the land is like, and whether the people who live in it are strong or weak, whether they are few or many. 19 How is the land in which they live, is it good or bad? And how are the cities in which they live, are theyd Lit inlike open camps or with fortifications? 20 How is the land, is it fat or lean? Are there trees in it or not?e Lit Use your strengthMake an effort then to get some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the time of the first ripe grapes.
21 So they went up and spied out the land from the wilderness of Zin as far as Rehob,f Or to the entrance of Hamathat Lebo-hamath. 22 When they had gone up into the Negev,g Lit Most mss read one camethey came to Hebron where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, theh Lit childrendescendants of Anak were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)
23 Then they came to thei Or wadivalley ofj I.e. clusterEshcol and from there cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes; and they carried it on a pole between two men, with some of the pomegranates and the figs. 24 That place was called the valley ofk I.e. clusterEshcol, because of the cluster which the sons of Israel cut down from there.
25 When they returned from spying out the land, at the end of forty days, 26 they proceeded to come to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation of the sons of Israell Lit toin the wilderness of Paran, at Kadesh; and they brought back word to them and to all the congregation and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 Thus they told him, and said, “We went in to the land where you sent us; and it certainly does flow with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 Nevertheless, the people who live in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large; and moreover, we saw them Lit born onesdescendants of Anak there. 29 Amalek is living in the land of the Negev and the Hittites and the Jebusites and the Amorites are living in the hill country, and the Canaanites are living by the sea and by the side of the Jordan.”
30 Then Caleb quieted the peoplen Lit towardbefore Moses and said, “We should by all means go up and take possession of it, for we will surely overcome it.” 31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are too strong for us.” 32 So they gave out to the sons of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone, in spying it out, is a land that devours itso Or settlersinhabitants; and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size. 33 There also we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak are part of the Nephilim); and we became like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

Наконец-то Израиль достиг Земли Обетованной, земли, в которой течет молоко и мед. Эта земля свободы от рабства и сказочного изобилия есть образ Небесного Царства, в котором жизнь по Божьей правде приносит удивительные плоды. Как важна решимость в достижении этой земли! Как важно не испугаться возможных препятствий и испытаний! Ведь с Божьей помощью мы сможем все преодолеть и войти в землю, которую Он приготовил для нас, и найти там Его любовь и благословение. Важно только искать этого Царства, а без этого страхи и трудности быстро сумеют нас сломить.

16 Afterward, however, the people moved out from Hazeroth and camped in the wilderness of Paran.

Описанная в Книге Чисел история разведчиков, отправленных для того, чтобы разузнать всё возможное о земле, которую предстояло завоевать, ещё раз и теперь уже с полной несомненностью показала, что ни к какой войне народ не готов. В самом деле: даже по виду возвратившихся людей, тащивших тяжёлую виноградную гроздь, легко было догадаться, что никто их не преследовал, так же, как и о том, что никакого особого сопротивления они не встретили. Такая ситуация в принципе делала вполне возможным завоевание земли вскоре после Исхода.

Достаточно было лишь продвинуться из оазиса Кадес-Варни на Синае, где жил тогда бежавший из Египта народ, на Север, в район Беэр-Шевы, а затем Хеврона, находящегося в южных предгорьях Иудеи. Собственно, именно так и сделали разведчики, не встретив сколько-нибудь серьёзного сопротивления — а значит, путь был открыт, и им мог пройти весь народ — если бы не боялся. Вот в этом самом «если» и была главная проблема. Народ боялся, и разведчики боялись тоже. С перепугу обычные люди могут показаться великанами, а селения, окружённые невысокими глинобитными стенами — городами со стенами «до небес».

Страх был совершенно иррациональным, однако признаваться в этом не хотелось — и тогда в ход пошли частично «увиденные», частично придуманные по дороге «страшилки». Самое же замечательное в том, что и весь народ поверил рассказам, которые вернее было бы назвать россказнями, и тоже собирался скорее вернуться в Египет, чем идти в ту землю, которая была совсем рядом, в пределах досягаемости.

Конечно, проникнув в Палестину с юга, завоевателям раньше или позже пришлось бы столкнуться с серьёзным сопротивлением местных жителей, но по дороге, которая заняла бы достаточное количество времени, они уже могли бы кое-чему научиться, в том числе и войне. Завоевание всей земли не стало бы лёгкой прогулкой, но основаться в южных предгорьях Иудеи можно было уже при жизни первого поколения выходцев из Египта. Если бы, конечно, сами люди решились на это. Они не решились — и перспектива вхождения в землю отдалилась, притом существенно. Теперь надо было ждать, пока сменится поколение. Так выбор людей корректирует Божьи планы — и всегда не в лучшую сторону.
