Numbers 14-15

“None of the men who have seen my glory and my signs that I did in Egypt and in the wilderness … shall see the land that I swore to give to their fathers” (v22-23).  All the adult Israelites who left Egypt spent their lives wandering in the desert and died there, except Joshua and Caleb, who had “a different spirit” and trusted God.  The other men didn’t trust God, and so they didn’t obey Him; they imagined that their old slavery in Egypt was better than the Promised Land (v4).

When the Israelites refused to trust God, they walked away from “milk and honey” – the abundant life of joy and peace that comes from knowing and obeying Him.
