Here's from Bamidbar, Numbers:
Numbers Chapter 13 בְּמִדְבַּר
Joshua Chapter 2 יְהוֹשֻׁעַ
אֲנָשִׁים, וְיָתֻרוּ אֶת-אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן anashim-people viyaturu-? Later in the verse we are told that these people are tribal heads, important people. They didn't hide. They wandered the Land in public view.
One of the men who was sent by Moshe was Joshua, who took over as leader after Moshe's death. He gave different orders and to שְׁנַיִם-אֲנָשִׁים מְרַגְּלִים anashim meraglim, spies. Another difference was that it was in secret.
I believe that Moshe had sent his tribal heads to stake out the Land. Moshe rather naively expected all twelve of them to understand that this was the "mother of all" pilot trips. They were supposed to claim their areas and come back giving the greatest, most convincing PR ever to excite and enthuse the tribes to hurry and settle the Land ASAP.
Only Caleb and Joshua understood their task. For that reason, Caleb's tribe Judah was given Hebron, which he had claimed during the mission.
The lesson we Jews today must learn from this is that our job isn't to decide the pros and cons of living in Israel. We must just pick the place in the Land of Israel where we will live and make it all work out, with G-d's help.
Have a wonderful week.
