The people became hungry while traveling in the desert and complained that they did not have enough food to eat, so the Lord had Moses provide them with many quails. Aaron and Miriam became jealous of Moses, so God afflicted Miriam with a disease that caused her to be ostracized from the rest of the people for seven days. Spies explored the promised land also known as Canaan when the Jews had finally reached it but only two of the spies named Joshua  and Caleb had positive things to say about the land because the people in the land were bigger than they were. The people decided not to trust the Lord and not to go into the land of Canaan, even though God had promised to give it to them and defeat their enemies for them. They were condemned to wander in the desert for another forty years and tried to take over Canaan anyway, but were defeated.
