Only do not rebel against Yahweh, and do not be afraid of the people of the land, for they are bread for us; their protection has departed from over them, and Yahweh is with us. Do not fear them.” Bible

“they are bread for us; their protection has departed from over them.” This is more literally, “they are bread for us, their shade has turned aside [or, “departed”] from over them.” It is possible that Joshua and Caleb were making an allusion to the bread that Israel ate every day, manna, because when the sun came up and the shade was gone it melted away (Exod. 16:21).
