Numbers 13:1-2

Scouting Out Canaan

1-2God spoke to Moses: "Send men to scout out the country of Canaan that I am giving to the People of Israel. Send one man from each ancestral tribe, each one a tried-and-true leader in the tribe."

from Reuben: Shammua son of Zaccur

from Simeon: Shaphat son of Hori

from Issachar: Igal son of Joseph

from Ephraim: Hoshea son of Nun

from Benjamin: Palti son of Raphu

from Zebulun: Gaddiel son of Sodi

from Manasseh (a Joseph tribe): Gaddi son of Susi

from Dan: Ammiel son of Gemalli

from Asher: Sethur son of Michael

from Naphtali: Nahbi son of Vophsi

from Gad: Geuel son of Maki.
