Numbers 11 ©
The burning at Taberah is quenched by Moses' prayer. The people lust for flesh, and lothe manna. Moses complaineth of his charge. God promiseth to divide the burden of it among seventy elders, and to give the people flesh for a month. Moses' faith is staggered. God giveth of his spirit unto the seventy elders. Quails are given in wrath at Kibroth-hattaavah.
And he called the name of the place 4Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.
And the people went labout, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and mbaked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of nfresh oil.
uI am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.
¶And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me xseventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and yofficers over them; and bring them zunto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee.
And I will acome down and talk with thee there: and I will btake of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall cbear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.
And say thou unto the people, dSanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, eWho shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD fwill give you flesh, and ye shall eat.
Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days;
But even a whole 8month, until git come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have hdespised the LORD which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, iWhy came we forth out of Egypt?
And the LORD ocame down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and ptook of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they qprophesied, and did not cease.
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 written, but rwent not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.
And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.
And Moses *gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.
¶And there went forth va wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, 9as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.
And he called the name of that place 10Kibroth-hattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.
