Numbers 12 - 13

Jealousy brought Miriam to justice and delayed the Israelites journey.

12:2 So they said, Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also? And the LORD heard it. 

Miriam was Moses sister but yet she was jealous because God spoken to Moses.

Her actions brought the wrath of God on her and she was punish.

12:9 So the anger of the LORD was aroused against them, and He departed. 

12:10 And when the cloud departed from above the tabernacle, suddenly Miriam became leprous, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned toward Miriam, and there she was, a leper.

We just need to comply to everything God said through the leader.

Her actions doesn't affect her alone but all the Israelites.

13:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 

13:2 Send men to spy out the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a leader among them 

13:3 So Moses sent them from the Wilderness of Paran according to the command of the LORD, all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel.

They indeed spy the land, but they let their fear conquers them, they forgot the God of Host is with them.

13:27 Then they told him, and said: We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 

13:28 Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there. 

13:33 There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.
