 13:33
 14:1
13:33 While we were there, we saw the titans. They were sons of the giant, who descended from the [original] titans. We felt like tiny grasshoppers! That's all that we were in their eyes.
Vesham ra'inu et-hanefilim beney Anak min-hanefilim vanehi ve'eyneynu kachagavim vechen hayinu be'eyneyhem.
14:1 The entire community raised a hubbub and began to shout. That night, the people wept.
Vatisa kol-ha'edah vayitnu et-kolam vayivku ha'am balaylah hahu.



Commentary:

titans
  Nefilim in Hebrew. See Genesis 6:4.

tiny grasshoppers
  Chagavim in Hebrew, the smallest kosher species of locust (see Leviticus 11:22).

That night
  The eve of 9 Av, better known as Tisha B'Av. (See note on Numbers 13:25). It hence became a day of tragedy.
