Bible: Numbers 11:4-9

11:4

Complaints about Food

1 

Now the mixed multitude 2  who were among them craved more desirable foods, 3  and so the Israelites wept again 4  and said, “If only we had meat to eat! 5  11:5 We remember 6  the fish we used to eat 7  freely 8  in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. 11:6 But now we 9  are dried up, 10  and there is nothing at all before us 11  except this manna! 11:7 (Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color like the color of bdellium. 11:8 And the people went about and gathered it, and ground it with mills or pounded it in mortars; they baked it in pans and made cakes of it. It tasted like fresh olive oil. 12  11:9 And when the dew came down 13  on the camp in the night, the manna fell 14  with it.)
