CHAPTER II. THE FAILURE OF UNBELIEF. li QO WE SEE THAT THEY COULD NOT ENTER J IN BECAUSE OF UNBELIEF."—(Heb. Hi. 19.) The men to whom the searching of the land was entrusted were no ordinary spies. Chosen from each of the tribes, they were all " heads of the children of Israel "—" every one a ruler." " So they went up and searched the land ;" and a search that extended through forty days must have been a thorough one. From north to south they saw with wondering eyes such bounties as they had never seen before. They passed on to the shores of the great sea. They beheld Lebanon and its cedars. They rested before the peaks of Hermon and Carmel. They followed the bed of the Jordan from the beautiful lake where it is born, to that sea in which it dies. They marked the countless hills and valleys, and the multitude of brooks. They saw, also, their enemies, the strongholds, and the very giants. They went to the graves of their fathers at Hebron, and saw there in that old city the three sons of Anak, whose names are so singularly preserved.f One can but listen in imagination to the talk of Num. xiii. 21. t Num. xiii. 22. these men as they journey over those hills. What outbursts of joy—what sighs of dismay ! What reasoning in their hearts, and what constant interchange of hopes and fears! And now they have returned, and the whole congregation, with Moses and Aaron at their head, stand around, ready to listen to the travellers. " Beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings;" and blessed might their feet have been that day.
