Tomorrow we'll read about Moshe sending men to explore the Land, in order to check different parameters:
Is the inhabited area good or bad? Are the cities where they live open or fortified?
Is the soil rich or weak? Does [the land] have trees or not? Make a special effort to bring [back] some of the land's fruits
When they came back and gave a report of their mission, the majority said :'We cannot go forward against those people!' replied the men who had gone with him. 'They are too strong for us!'
The people reacted: The people started saying to one another, 'Let's appoint a [new] leader and go back to Egypt.
Consequently, despite of the original plan, the "Generation of the Desert" was condemned to die in the desert and only the next generation would enter the Promised Land.
to enter the "Promised Land" and liberate itself progressively.
Shabbat Shalom to all,
