G-d tells Moshe to send "people” to "scout out " the Land. (“People”) is in quotes because commentaries point to the word ANASHIM and say that it means people of high calibre and repute - on the other hand...) The emphasis in the wording of the pasuk is on Moshe being the one sending the Meraglim, not at G-d's command nor by His "desire ".
