{Deuteronomy 1:28} Whither x575 shall we x587 go up? 5927 z8802 our brethren 251 have discouraged 4549 z8689 x853 our heart, 3824 saying, 559 z8800 The people 5971 [is] greater 1419 and taller 7311 z8802 than x4480 we; the cities 5892 [are] great 1419 and walled x1219 up y1219 z8803 to heaven; 8064 and moreover x1571 we have seen 7200 z8804 the sons 1121 of the Anakims 6062 there. x8033
discouraged:
Heb. melted, "And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man [is there that is] fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's heart faint as well as his heart." {Deu 20:8} *marg. "Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away." {Exd 15:15} + "And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you." {Jsh 2:9} + "And as soon as we had heard [these things], our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he [is] God in heaven above, and in earth beneath." {Jsh 2:11} + "And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us." {Jsh 2:24} *marg. "Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God." {Jsh 14:8} + "Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:" {Isa 13:7} + "And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak [as] water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord GOD." {Ezk 21:7}
The people:
"Hear, O Israel: Thou [art] to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven, ... A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and [of whom] thou hast heard [say], Who can stand before the children of Anak!" {Deu 9:1-2} + "Nevertheless the people [be] strong that dwell in the land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. ... And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight." {Num 13:28-33}
walled:
That is, with very high walls, which could not be easily scaled. Harmer says, high walls are still to be seen in Arabia, and are deemed a sufficient defence against the Arabs, who scarcely ever attempt to plunder except on horseback. The monastery on Mount Sinai, and the convent of St. Anthony in Egypt, are surrounded with a very high wall, without gates; the persons and things being taken up and let down through an opening in the upper part, by means of a pulley and a basket. This kind of walling is a sufficient defence.
we have seen:
"A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and [of whom] thou hast heard [say], Who can stand before the children of Anak!" {Deu 9:2} + "There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained." {Jsh 11:22} + "And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak." {Jsh 15:14} + "And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai." {Jdg 1:10} + "And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said: and he expelled thence the three sons of Anak." {Jdg 1:20} + "And Ishbibenob, which [was] of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear [weighed] three hundred [shekels] of brass in weight, he being girded with a new [sword], thought to have slain David. ... These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants." {2Sm 21:16-22}
