with orders to explore the land of Canaan. And here are their names: Shammua son of Zaccur from Reuben, Shaphat son of Hori from Simeon, Caleb son of Jephunneh from Judah, Igal son of Joseph from Issachar, Joshua son of Nun from Ephraim, Palti son of Raphu from Benjamin, Gaddiel son of Sodi from Zebulun, Gaddi son of Susi from Manasseh, Ammiel son of Gemalli from Dan, Sethur son of Michael from Asher, Nahbi son of Vophsi from Naphtali, and Geuel son of Machi from Gad.
Moses obeyed and from the wilderness of Paran he sent out leaders, as follows: Tribe Leader Reuben Shammua son of Zaccur Simeon Shaphat son of Hori Judah Caleb son of Jephunneh Issachar Igal son of Joseph Ephraim Hoshea son of Nun Benjamin Palti son of Raphu Zebulun Gaddiel son of Sodi Manasseh Gaddi son of Susi Dan Ammiel son of Gemalli Asher Sethur son of Michael Naphtali Nahbi son of Vophsi Gad Geuel son of Machi
(The Israelis were camped in the wilderness of Paran at the time.) Moses did as the Lord had commanded and sent these twelve tribal leaders: Shammua, son of Zaccur, from the tribe of Reuben; Shaphat, son of Hori, from the tribe of Simeon; Caleb, son of Jephunneh, from the tribe of Judah; Igal, son of Joseph, from the tribe of Issachar; Hoshea, son of Nun, from the half-tribe of Ephraim; Palti, son of Raphu, from the tribe of Benjamin; Gaddiel, son of Sodi, from the tribe of Zebulun; Gaddi, son of Susi, from the tribe of Joseph (actually, the half-tribe of Manasseh); Ammiel, son of Gemalli, from the tribe of Dan; Sethur, son of Michael, from the tribe of Asher; Nahbi, son of Vophsi, from the tribe of Naphtali; Geuel, son of Machi, from the tribe of Gad.
So Moses sent them off from the Wilderness of Paran at the command of God. All of them were leaders in Israel, one from each tribe. These were their names: from Reuben: Shammua son of Zaccur from Simeon: Shaphat son of Hori from Judah: Caleb son of Jephunneh 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.
