Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.
Thus, did your fathers, - when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea, to view the land,
And ye came near unto me all of you, and said Let us send men before us, that they may search out for us the land, - and bring us back word, the way by which we must go up, and the cities whereinto we must enter,
and with you, shall be one man for each tribe, - each man, head of his ancestral house, shall be.
Also, one prince from each tribe, shall ye take to receive the land, as an inheritance.
Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Gather thou unto me seventy men, from among the elders of Israel, of whom thou knowest that they are elders of the people and their overseers, - then shalt thou take them unto the tent of meeting, and they shall station themselves there with thee.
and Moses chose men of ability out of all Israel, and set them to be heads over the people, - rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.
So I took heads for your tribes wise men and known, and placed them as heads over you, captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, and captains of fifties and captains of tens, and overseers for your tribes.
