In Numbers 13 we are told that God commanded Moshe to sends the twelve spies to scout out the land:
1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
2 'Send thou men, that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel; of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a prince among them.'
Later, in Deuteronomy 1, Moshe recounts that the people asked for this and he agreed:
22 And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said: 'Let us send men before us, that they may search the land for us, and bring us back word of the way by which we must go up, and the cities unto which we shall come.'
23 And the thing pleased me well; and I took twelve men of you, one man for every tribe;
Is there a way to reconcile these from the text of the Tanakh? Is there an interpretation whereby they're both true, or must we assume that Moshe is not telling it exactly the way it happened?
