    Explanation
    Caleb and Joshua were the only two spies who encouraged the Israelites to have faith in God and cross the Jordan River. In Numbers 14:6-9, Caleb and Joshua spoke out against the other spies who were spreading fear and doubt among the Israelites. They urged the people to trust in God's promises and not to turn against the Lord. Their faith and courage ultimately led to their survival and entrance into the Promised Land.

    Explanation
    After Joshua and Caleb encouraged the Israelites to go on into the Promised Land, the Israelites started talking about stoning them. This means that instead of heeding their advice and following their leadership, the Israelites turned against Joshua and Caleb and wanted to kill them by throwing stones at them. This reaction highlights the lack of faith and disobedience of the Israelites towards God's plan for them.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is that none of the people who God had brought out of Egypt would enter the promised land except Joshua and Caleb. This is stated in Numbers 14:21-24, 30, where God declares that because of the Israelites' lack of faith and disobedience, they would wander in the wilderness for 40 years until the entire generation had died off.

    Correct Answer
    C. The spies were in Canaan, spying out the land.
    Explanation
    In the book of Numbers, the Israelites sent twelve spies to explore the land of Canaan, which God had promised to give them. However, ten of the spies brought back a negative report, causing the people to lose faith in God's promise. As a result, God punished the Israelites by making them wander in the wilderness for forty years, with each year representing a day that the spies had spent in Canaan. Therefore, the correct answer is "The spies were in Canaan, spying out the land."

The word "sickness" fits this context as it can refer to a disease or illness that can cause harm or even death to individuals. Using sickness as a weapon suggests that the speaker plans to use a contagious or deadly disease to destroy their enemies and potentially use the survivors to build a new nation.
