Bible: Num 11:10-15


Moses’ Complaint to the Lord


Moses heard the people weeping 2  throughout their families, everyone at the door of his tent; and when the anger of the Lord was kindled greatly, Moses was also displeased. 3  11:11 And Moses said to the Lord, “Why have you afflicted 4  your servant? Why have I not found favor in your sight, that 5  you lay the burden of this entire people on me? 11:12 Did I conceive this entire people? 6  Did I give birth to 7  them, that you should say to me, ‘Carry them in your arms, as a foster father 8  bears a nursing child,’ to the land which you swore to their fathers? 11:13 From where shall I get 9  meat to give to this entire people, for they cry to me, ‘Give us meat, that we may eat!’ 10  11:14 I am not able to bear this entire people alone, 11  because it 12  is too heavy for me! 11:15 But if you are going to deal 13  with me like this, then kill me immediately. 14  If I have found favor in your sight then do not let me see my trouble.” 15
