Why did they call the name of that place Nachal Eshkol?


Seforno: They called it by that name because the Cana'anim, who saw nothing special about the particular cluster of grapes that the Spies cut to take back, 1 expressed surprise at the fact that they did.


Targum Yonasan: They called it "Nachal - (the River of) Eshkol", on account of the wine that flowed from the cluster of grapes that they cut - like a river.


Seforno: Seing as there were numerous clusters just as large as it, and perhaps even larger.
