Bible: Numbers 11:1-6

11:1

The Israelites Complain

1 

When the people complained, 2  it displeased 3  the Lord. When the Lord heard 4  it, his anger burned, 5  and so 6  the fire of the Lord 7  burned among them and consumed some of the outer parts of the camp. 11:2 When the people cried to Moses, he 8  prayed to the Lord, and the fire died out. 9  11:3 So he called the name of that place Taberah 10  because there the fire of the Lord burned among them.

11:4

Complaints about Food

11 

Now the mixed multitude 12  who were among them craved more desirable foods, 13  and so the Israelites wept again 14  and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 15  11:5 We remember 16  the fish we used to eat 17  freely 18  in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. 11:6 But now we 19  are dried up, 20  and there is nothing at all before us 21  except this manna!
