Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 14:6

_ _ Joshua ... and Caleb, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes — The two honest spies testified their grief and horror, in the strongest manner, at the mutiny against Moses and the blasphemy against God; while at the same time they endeavored, by a truthful statement, to persuade the people of the ease with which they might obtain possession of so desirable a country, provided they did not, by their rebellion and ingratitude, provoke God to abandon them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 14:5-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 14:6

Rent their clothes — To testify their hearty grief for the peoples blasphemy against God and sedition against Moses, and that dreadful judgment which they easily foresaw this must bring upon the congregation.
