Reading: The Lord Sends Quail (Numbers 11:1~35)
Israel was in a period of transition after the great deliverance from Egypt, yet they were en route to their new home in Canaan. But when the going became difficult, a group of people rose up complaining about the food. The Lord had provided manna to sustain them, but they wanted meat.
So he sent them meat. He sent them quail in such abundance that it was a meter high in a day’s journey distance in every direction. They had more meat than they knew what to do with.
And yet while they were eating the meat the Lord had provided, the “Lord’s anger burned against the people and the Lord struck them with a very severe plague.”_
Now the Lord sent a wind that brought quail from the sea and let them fall all around the camp. For miles in every direction there were quail flying about three feet above the ground. So the people went out and caught quail all that day and throughout the night and all the next day, too. No one gathered less than fifty bushels ! They spread the quail all around the camp to dry. But while they were gorging themselves on the meat—while it was still in their mouths—the anger of the Lord blazed against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. So that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah (which means “graves of gluttony”) because there they buried the people who had craved meat from Egypt. From Kibroth-hattaavah the Israelites traveled to Hazeroth, where they stayed for some time.
