22 When they had gone up into (A)the Negev, [a]they came to Hebron where (B)Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the [b]descendants of (C)Anak were. (Now Hebron was built seven years before (D)Zoan in Egypt.)

23 Then they came to the [c]valley of [d](E)Eshcol and from there cut down a branch with a single cluster of grapes; and they carried it on a pole between two men, with some of the pomegranates and the figs. 24 That place was called the valley of [e]Eshcol, because of the cluster which the sons of Israel cut down from there.
