The sin of the spies who checked out the land of Israel.

Before they were set for conquest of this land from these other nations who were to be expelled due to their serious sins mentioned in prior bible readings.

They sadly came back with a bad report that scared the people and they then spoke out against God. To which Caleb turned this into a positive saying we shall overcome it (Numbers 14:30).

They also failed to see the fact that the land was devouring its settlers meaning that people were dying there that this may have been part of the sign that God was not with the nations that currently lived in Israel but the other 10 spies didn't take it that way. (Numbers 14:32).
