Chevron and Otniel - Kalev ben Yefuneh and Otniel ben Knaz those who merit to inherit the Land

bs"d


 Kalev ben Yefuneh, the Leader from the Tribe of Judah, had this statement to the Israelites in the Desert. 

Bamidbar - Numbers - Chapter 14
הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר עָבַרְנוּ בָהּ לָתוּר אֹתָהּ טוֹבָה הָאָרֶץ מְאֹד מְאֹד:  7 "The Land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land.

For this G-d rewards him and his descendants. 
כדוְעַבְדִּי כָלֵב עֵקֶב הָיְתָה רוּחַ אַחֶרֶת עִמּוֹ וַיְמַלֵּא אַחֲרָי וַהֲבִיאֹתִיו אֶל הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר בָּא שָׁמָּה וְזַרְעוֹ יוֹרִשֶׁנָּה24 But as for My servant Caleb, since he was possessed by another spirit, and he followed Me, I will bring him to the land to which he came,
Rav Ariel at Rabbi Mikki Mark's funeral quoted from Sefer Devarim:  
 Devarim Deuteronomy 26:15
15Look down from Your holy dwelling, from the heavens, and bless Your people Israel, and the ground which You have given to us, as You swore to our forefathers a land flowing with milk and honey. הַשְׁקִיפָה מִמְּעוֹן קָדְשְׁךָ מִן הַשָּׁמַיִם וּבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמְּךָ אֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל וְאֵת הָאֲדָמָה אֲשֶׁר נָתַתָּה לָנוּ כַּאֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ לַאֲבֹתֵינוּ אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב וּדְבָשׁ:
