Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 13:17

_ _ Get you up this way ... , and go up into the mountain — Mount Seir (Deuteronomy 1:2), which lay directly from Sinai across the wilderness of Paran, in a northeasterly direction into the southern parts of the promised land.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 13:1-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 13:17

Southward — Into the southern part of Canaan, which was the nearest part, and the worst too, being dry and desert, and therefore fit for them to enter and pass through with less observation. Into the mountain — Into the mountainous country, and thence into the valleys, and so take a survey of the whole land.
