Numbers 11

11:1 And [when] the people complained, it displeased the LORD;
 and the LORD heard [it]: and his anger was kindled; and the
 fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed [them that
 were] in the uttermost parts of the camp.
11:2 And the people cried to Moses; and when Moses prayed to the
 LORD, the fire was quenched.
11:3 And he called the name of the place Taberah; because the
 fire of the LORD burnt among them.
11:4 And the mixed multitude that [was] among them fell to
 lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said,
 Who shall give us flesh to eat?
11:5 We remember the fish which we ate in Egypt freely: the
 cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and
 the garlic:
11:6 But now our soul [is] dried away; [there is] nothing at
 all, besides this manna, [before] our eyes.
11:7 And the manna [was] as coriander-seed, and the color of it
 as the color of bdellium.
11:8 [And] the people went about, and gathered [it] and ground
 [it] in mills, or beat [it] in a mortar, and baked [it] in
 pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the
 taste of fresh oil.
11:9 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna
 fell upon it.
11:10 Then Moses heard the people weeping throughout their
 families, every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of
 the LORD was kindled greatly: Moses also was displeased.
11:11 And Moses said to the LORD, Why hast thou afflicted thy
 servant? and why have I not found favor in thy sight, that thou
 layest the burden of all this people upon me?
11:12 Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them,
 that thou shouldest say to me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a
 nursing-father beareth the sucking child, to the land which
 thou sworest to their fathers?
11:13 Whence should I have flesh to give to all this people? for
 they weep to me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.
11:14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because [it
 is] too heavy for me.
11:15 And if thou dealest thus with me, kill me, I pray thee,
 out of hand, if I have found favor in thy sight; and let me not
 see my wretchedness.
11:16 And the LORD said to Moses, Gather to me seventy men of
 the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the
 people, and officers over them; and bring them to the
 tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with
11:17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will
 take of the spirit which [is] upon thee, and will put [it] upon
 them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee,
 that thou mayest not bear it thyself alone.
11:18 And say thou to the people, Sanctify yourselves against
 to-morrow, and ye shall eat flesh; for ye have wept in the ears
 of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for [it
 was] well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you
 flesh, and ye shall eat.
11:19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days,
 neither ten days, nor twenty days;
11:20 [But] even a whole month, until it shall come out at your
 nostrils, and it be lothsome to you; because ye have despised
 the LORD who [is] among you, and have wept before him, saying,
 Why came we forth out of Egypt?
11:21 And Moses said, The people among whom I [am], [are] six
 hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them
 flesh, that they may eat a whole month.
11:22 Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to
 suffice for them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered
 for them, to suffice for them?
11:23 And the LORD said to Moses, Is the LORD'S hand shortened?
 thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass to thee,
 or not.
11:24 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the
 LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people,
 and set them around the tabernacle.
11:25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spoke to him, and
 took of the spirit that [was] upon him, and gave [it] to the
 seventy elders: and it came to pass, [that] when the spirit
 rested upon them; they prophesied, and did not cease.
11:26 But there remained two [of the] men in the camp, the name
 of the one [was] Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and
 the spirit rested upon them, and they [were] of them that were
 described, but went not out to the tabernacle: and they
 prophesied in the camp.
11:27 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad
 and Medad do prophesy in the camp.
11:28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, [one] of
 his young men, answered and said, My lord, Moses, forbid them.
11:29 And Moses said to him, Enviest thou for my sake? I would
 that all the LORD'S people were prophets, [and] that the LORD
 would put his spirit upon them.
11:30 And Moses withdrew into the camp, he and the elders of
11:31 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought
 quails from the sea, and let [them] fall by the camp, as it
 were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's
 journey on the other side, around the camp, and as it were two
 cubits [high] upon the face of the earth.
11:32 And the people stood up all that day, and all [that]
 night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he
 that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread [them]
 all abroad for themselves around the camp.
11:33 And while the flesh [was] yet between their teeth, ere it
 was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the
 people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.
11:34 And he called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaavah:
 because there they buried the people that lusted.
11:35 [And] the people journeyed from Kibroth-hattaavah to
 Hazeroth: and abode at Hazeroth.
