The Grapes of Canaan by James Tissot. Although the spies brought back a cluster of grapes so large that it took 2 men to carry it (Numbers 13:23), only two of the twelve brought back a good report of the land..They were the only men from their generation permitted to go into the Promised Land after the time of wandering..Some people think the word "spies" is an incorrect translation. The Hebrew word that the Torah uses is מרגלים ("meraglim"), which can also mean "traitors" or "deserters".. In Numbers 13:, the Hebrew word describing the group is also the word usually translated as "men" or the word usually translated as "princes"...

On return to the UK in early 1944, it took part in the Normandy landings and fought in Northwest Europe to VE Day.. In 1946, CC Battery became C Battery..

But the men who had gone up with him said, "We can't attack those people; they are stronger than we are".. And they spread a bad report about the land they had explored.. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it.. All the people we saw there were of great size.. We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim).. We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."

— Numbers, 13:31-33..

Tetley has brewed up a storm over a teacup after claiming that rival PG Tips "denigrated" its round teabags in a TV ad..PG Tips owner Unbilever got itself into hot water with a recent television ad in which the puppet brews up 2 cups of tea for comedian Johnny V, one using a genetic round teabag and one a using the brand's pyramid bag..., there Netley.. I shall tell you where we are.. We're in the darkest region of the human brain, a radiant abyss where men go to find themselves...
