Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 14:24

_ _ my servant Caleb — Joshua was also excepted, but he is not named because he was no longer in the ranks of the people, being a constant attendant on Moses.

_ _ because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully — Under the influence of God’s Spirit, Caleb was a man of bold, generous, heroic courage, above worldly anxieties and fears.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 14:20-35.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 14:24

Caleb — Joshua is not named, because he was not now among the people, but a constant attendant upon Moses, nor was he to be reckoned as one of them, any more than Moses and Aaron were, because he was to be their chief commander. He had another spirit — Was a man of another temper, faithful and courageous, not acted by that evil spirit of cowardice, unbelief, disobedience, which ruled in his brethren but by the spirit of God. Fully — Universally and constantly, through difficulties and dangers, which made his partners halt. Whereinto he went — In general, Canaan, and particularly Hebron, and the adjacent parts, Joshua 14:9.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(k) A meek and obedient spirit, and not rebellious.
