Remember the famous words of Caleb in describing the Land of Israel upon his return to the Nation of Israel: The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good land.

In the Bible
And they told him, and said: ‘We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
The slanderous report of the spies against the Land of Israel is one of the worst, if not the single gravest sin in the entire Bible. Moses sent one representative from each tribe to scout out the territory, and ten of the twelve returned with a negative report. Only Kalev and Yehoshua had faith in God and spoke positively about the Land of Israel. Whereas God forgives many sins throughout the course of the Bible, slandering Israel was unacceptable and the entire generation was punished. The nation was to wander in the desert for 40 years while the generation of the spies died – they were no longer deserving to enter the Promised Land.
