Numbers 14:9 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Uproar among the People. - Numbers 14:1-4. This appalling description of Canaan had so depressing an influence upon the whole congregation (cf. Deuteronomy 1:28 : they "made their heart melt," i.e., threw them into utter despair), that they raised a loud cry, and wept in the night in consequence. The whole nation murmured against Moses and Aaron their two leaders, saying "Would that we had died in Egypt or in this wilderness! Why will Jehovah bring us into this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should become a prey (be made slaves by the enemy; cf. Deuteronomy 1:27-28)? Let us rather return into Egypt! We will appoint a captain, they said one to another, and go back to Egypt."
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
defence. Heb. shadow. Tzillam, a metaphor highly expressive of protection and support in the sultry eastern countries. The Arabs and Persians use the same word to express the same thing; using the expressions, 'May the shadow of thy prosperity be extended.' 'May the shadow of thy prosperity be spread over the heads of thy well-wishers.' And in an elegant distich, 'May your protection never be removed from my head; may God extend your shadow eternally.' The loftiest and most esteemed title of the sultan, says Thornton, because given him by the kings of Persia, is zil ullah, shadow of God.

And I looked and arose and said to the nobles and to the officials and to the rest of the people, "Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes."
The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah
