What was their response?


Sotah 37b: (We need not hide to avoid Ayin ha'Ra.) Ayin ha'Ra does not affect the seed of Yosef (refer to 17:15:1:2), who is "Alei Ayin" (Bereishis 49:22).


Rashi (15,16): Indeed, we are cramped. Har Efrayim will not suffice for us, and we cannot conquer the Kena'ani (Eretz Perizi and Eretz Refa'im), for they are strong, and have iron chariots.


Malbim: (a) The Har will not suffice for us. (b) It is good that we leave it as a forest, to divide between us and the Kena'ani, who have iron chariots.

Sefer: Perek: Pasuk:
