The people lust for flesh.

5 8 We remember the fish which we did
eat in Egypt freely ; the cucumbers, and the
melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and
the garlic.

6 But now ''our soul is dried away; there
is nothing at all, besides this manna, before
our eyes.

7 And ' the manna was as coriander-seed,
and the t colour thereof as the colour of
''bdellium.

8 And the people went about, and ga-
thered it, and ground it in mills, or beat
it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and
made cakes of it : and 'the taste of it was
as the taste of fresh oil.

9 And ""when the dew fell upon the camp
in the night, the manna fell upon it.

10 H Then Moses heard the people weep
throughout their families, every man in the
door of his tent: and "the anger of the Lord
was kindled greatly; Moses also was dis-
pleased.

11 "And Moses said linto the Lord,
Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant ?
and wherefore have I not found favour in
thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all
this people upon me ?

12 Have I conceived all this people ?
have I begotten them, that thou shouldest
say unto me, p Carry them in thy bosom,
as a "J nursing-father beareth the sucking
child, unto the land which thou 'swarest
unto their fathers ?

13 ^Whence should I have flesh to give
unto all this people ? for they weep unto me,
saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat,

14 'I am not able to bear all this people
alone, because it is too heavy for me.

15 And if thou deal thus with me, "kill
me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found
favour in thy sight ; and let me not "see my
wretchedness.

16 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
Gather unto me y seventy men of the elders
of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the
elders of the people, and ^officers over them ;
and bring them unto the tabernacle of the
congregation, that they may stand there with
thee.

17 And I will * come down and talk with
thee there ; and *• I will take of the spirit
which is upon thee, and will put it upon
them: and they shall bear the burden of
the people with thee, that thou bear it not
thyself alone.

18 And say thou unto the people, "Sanc-
tify yourselves against to-morrow, and ye
shall eat flesh : for ye have wept ^ in the
ears of the Lord, saying. Who shall give

flesh to eat? "^for it was well with us in
137



us



Quails are given in wrath.

Egypt: therefore the Lord will give you
flesh, and ye shall eat.

19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two
days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor
twenty days ;

20 ''But even a t whole month, until it
come out at your nostrils, and it be loath-
some unto you : because that ye have de-
spised the Lord which is among you, and
have wept before him, saying, sWhy came
we forth out of Egypt ?

21 And Moses said, '•The people among
whom 1 am, are six hundred thousand foot-
men ; and thou hast said, I will give them
flesh, that they may eat a whole month,

22 ' Shall the flocks and the herds be slain
for them, to suffice them ? or shall all the
fish of the sea be gathered together for them,
to suffice them ?

23 And the Lord said unto Moses, ''Is
the Lord's hand waxed short ? thou shalt
see now whether 'my word shall come to
pass unto thee, or not.

24 IF And Moses went out, and told the
people the words of the Lord, and "" gathered
the seventy men of the elders of the people,
and set them round about the tabernacle.

25 And the Lord "came down in a cloud,
and spake unto him, and took 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, Pthey
prophesied, and did not cease.

26 But there remained two of the men
in tiie 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 iwent not
out unto the tabernacle : and they prophesied
in the camp.

27 And there ran a young man, and told
Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do pro-
phesy in the camp.

28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the ser-
vant of Moses, one of his young men, an-
swered and said, My lord Moses, ■■ forbid
them.

29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest
thou for my sake? "would God that all the
Lord's people were prophets, and that the
Lord would put his Spirit upon them.

30 And Moses gat him into the camp, he
and the elders of Israel.

31 IT And there went forth a *wind from
the Lord, and brought quails from the sea,
and let them fall by the camp, t as 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.

God rebuketh Miriam and Aaron.

32 And the people stood up all that day,
and all that night, and all the next day,
and they gathered the quails : he that ga-
thered least gathered ten " homers : and they
spread them all abroad for themselves round
about the camp.

33 And while the * flesh rvas yet between
their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath
of the Lord was kindled against the people,
and the Lord smote the people with a very
great plague.

34 And he called the name of that place
II Kibroth-hattaavah: because there they bu-
ried the people that lusted.

35 ^ And the people journeyed from Ki-
broth-hattaavah unto Hazeroth : and tabode
at Hazei'oth.

CHAP. XIL

1 God reluheth the sedition of Miriam and Aaron. 10
Miriam's leprosy is healed at the prayer of Moses.
14 God commandeth her to be shut out of the host.

AND Miriam and Aaron spake against
Moses because of the || Ethiopian wo-
man whom he had married : for *he had
t married an Ethiopian woman.

2 And they said. Hath the Lord indeed
spoken only by Moses ? ''hath he not spoken
also by us ? And the Lord <= heard it.

3 (Now the man Moses was very meek,
above all the men which were upon the face
of the earth.)

4 "And the Lord spake suddenly unto
Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam,
Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the
congregation. And they three came out.

5 ^And the Lord came down in the
pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door
of the tabernacle, aind called Aaron and
Miriam : and they both came forth.

6 And he said, Hear now my words : If
there be a prophet among you, / the Lord
will make myself known unto him ein a
vision, and will speak unto him '' in a dream.

7 ' My servant Moses is not so, >= who is
faithful in all ' mine house.

8 With him will I speak ""mouth to
mouth, even "apparently, and not in dark
speeches ; and ° the similitude of the Lord
shall he behold : wherefore then p were ye
not afraid to speak against my servant
Moses ?

9 And the anger of the Lord was kindled
against them ; and he departed.

10 And the cloud departed from off
the tabernacle ; and i behold, Miriam he-
came ' leprous, white as snow : and Aaron
looked upon Miriam, and behold, she was
leprous.

11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my
lord, I beseech thee, =lay not the sin upon

us, wherein we have done foolishly, and
wherein we have sinned.

12 Let her not be *as one dead, of whom
the flesh is half consumed when he cometh
out of his mother's womb.

13 And Moses cried unto the LoRp, say-
ing. Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.

14 IT And the Lord said unto Moses, "If
her father had but spit in her face, should
she nx)t be ashamed seven days ? let her be
*shut out from the camp seven days, and
after that let her be received in again.

15 yAnd Miriam was shut out from the
camp seven days : and the people journeyed
not till Miriam was brought in again.

16 And afterward the people removed
from ^Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilder-
ness of Paran.

3 And Moses by the commandment of

Their instructions, acts, and report.

17 1 And Moses sent them to spy out the
land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get
you up this way e southward, and go up into
•"the mountain :

18 And see the land, what it is; and the
people that dwelleth therein, whether they
be strong or weak, few or many ;

19 And what the land is that they dwell
in, whether it be good or bad ; and what
cities they be that they dwell in, whether in
tents, or in strong holds ;

20 And what the land is, whether it be
' fat or lean, whether there be wood therein,
or not. And ''be ye of good courage, and
bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time
was the time of the first ripe grapes.

21 IT So they went up, and searched the
land 'from the wilderness of Zin unto ""Re-
hob, as men come to Ham'ath.

22 And they ascended by the south, and
came unto Hebron ; where " Ahiman, Sheshai,
and Talmai, "the children of Anak, were.
(Now P Hebron was built seven years before
^Zoan in Egypt.)

23 ' And they came unto the || brook of
Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch
with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it
between two upon a staff; and they brought
of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

24 The place was called the || brook || Esh-
col, because of the cluster of grapes which the
children of Israel cut down from thence.

25 And they returned from searching of
the land after forty days.

26 H And they went and came to Moses,
and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of
the children of Israel, »unto the wilderness of
Paran, to * Kadesh ; and brought back word
unto them, and unto all the congregation,
and shewed them the fruit of the land.

27 And they told him, and said, We came
unto the land whither thou sentest us, and
surely it floweth with "milk and honey ; " and
this is the fruit of it.

28 Nevertheless, ^the people be strong
that dwell in the land, and the cities are
walled, and very great : and moreover, we saw
^the children of Anak there.

29 *The Amalekites dwell in the land of
the south : and the Hittites, and the Jebu-
sites, and the Amorites, dwell in the moun-
tains ; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea,
and by the coast of Jordan.

30 And ''Caleb stilled the people before
Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and
possess it; for we are well able to over-
come it.

31 "But the men that went up with him
said. We be not able to go up against the
people ; for they are stronger than we.

139



The people murmur.

32 And they "i brought up an evil report
of the land which they had searched unto the
children of Israel, saying, The land through
which wc have gone to search it, is a land
that eateth up the inhabitants thereof ; and
" all the people that we saw in it are fmen of
a great stature.

33 And there we saw the giants, ""the sons
of Anak, which come of the giants : and we
were in our own sight as s grasshoppers, and
so we were *• in their sight.

The people murmur at the news. 6 Joshua and Caleb
labour to still them,. 11 God, threateneth them.
13 Moses persuadeth God, and obtaineth pardon.
26 The murmurers are deprived of entering into the
land. 36 The men who raised the evil report die by
a plague. 40 The people that would invade the land
against the will of God are smitten.

AND all the congregation lifted up their
voice, and cried ; and ''the people wept
that night.

2 ''And all the children of Israel mur-
mured against Moses and against Aaron : and
the whole congregation said unto them.
Would God that we had died in the land
of Egypt ! or " would God we had died in
this wilderness !

3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought
us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that
our wives and our children should be a
prey ? were it not better for us to return
into Egypt ?

4 And they said one to another, ''Let us
make a captain, and '^let us return into

Egypt-

5 Then ''Moses and Aaron fell on their
faces before all the assembly of the congre-
gation of the children of Israel.

6 IT sAnd Joshua the son of Nun, and
Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of
them that searched the land, rent their
clothes :

7 And they spake unto all the company of
the children of Israel, saying, ''The land,
which we passed through to search it, is an
exceeding good land.

8 If the Lord 'delight in us, then he
will bring us into this land, and give it
us ; ''a land which floweth with milk and
honey.

9 Only 'rebel not ye against the Lord,
"neither fear ye the people of the land ; for
" they are bread for us : their f defence is
departed from them, "and the Lord is with
us : fear them not.

10 P But all the congregation bade stone
them with stones. And nhe glory of the
Lord appeared in the tabernacle of the con-
gregation before all the children of Israel.

Moses intercedeth for them.

11 IT And the Lord said unto Moses,
How long will this people "■ provoke me? and
how long will it be ere they ^believe me, for
all the signs which I have shewed among
them?

12 I will smite them with the pestilence,
and disinherit them, and *will make of thee
a greater nation and mightier than they.

13 IF And "Moses said unto the Lord,
Then the Egyptians shall hear it, (for thou
broughtest up this people in thy might from
among them ;)

14 And they will tell it to the inhabitants
of this land : ^/or they have heard that thou
Lord art among this people, that thou
Lord art seen face to face, and that ^thy
cloud standeth over them, and that thou
goest before them, by day-time in a pillar
of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by
night.

15 IT Novr if thou shalt kill all this people as
one man, then the nations which have heard
the fame of thee will speak, saying,

16 Because the Lord was not ^able to
bring this people into the land which he
sware unto them, therefore he hath slain
them in the wilderness.

17 And now, I beseech thee, let the power
of my Lord be great, according as thou hast
spoken, saying,

18 The Lord is ^long-suffering, and of
great mercy, forgiving iniquity and trans-
gression, and by no means clearing the guilty,
'•visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the
children unto the third and fourth genera-
tion.

19 <= Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of
this people ''according unto the greatness of
thy mercy, and ^as thou hast forgiven this
people, from Egypt even || until now.

20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned
•" according to thy word :

21 But as truly as I live, sail the
earth shall be filled with the glory of the
Lord.

22 ''Because all those men which have
seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did
in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have
tempted me now '.these ten times, and have
not hearkened to my voice ;

23 ^ t Surely they shall not see the land
which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall
any of them that provoked me see it :

24 But my servant 'Caleb, because he had
another spirit with him, and ""hath followed
me fully, him will I bring into the land
whereinto he went; and his seed shall pos-
sess it.

ites dwelt in the valley.) To-morrow turn

you, °and get you into the wilderness by the
way of the Red sea.

26 ^ And the Lord spake unto Moses
and unto Aaron, saying,

27 "How long shall I hear with this evil
congregation, which murmur against me ?
pI have heard the murmurings of the chil-
dren of Israel, which they murmur against
me.

28 Say unto them, i^s truly as 1 live,
saith the Lord, 'as ye have spoken in mine
ears, so will I do to you :

29 Your carcasses shall fall in this wilder-
ness; and ^ajl that were numbered of you,
according to your whole number, from twen-
ty years old and upward, which have mur-
mured against me.

30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the
land concerning which I f sware to make
you dwell therein, * save Caleb the son of
Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

31 "But your little ones, which ye said
should be a prey, them will I bring in, and
they shall know the land which ^ye have
despised.

32 But as for you, y your carcasses, they
shall fall in this wilderness.

33 And your children shall || ^wander in
the wilderness ''forty years, and ""bear your
whoredoms, until your carcasses be wasted
in the wilderness.

34 •= After the mmiber of the days in which
yc searched the land, even ''forty days (each
day for a year) shall ye bear your iniquities,
even forty years " and ye shall know || my
breach of promise.

35 ^ I the Lord have said, I will surely
do it unto all ^this evil congregation, that are
gathered together against me : in this wilder-
ness they shall be consumed, and there they
shall die.

36 ^ And the men which Moses sent to
search the land, Avho returned, and made all
the congregation to murmur against him, by
bringing up a slander upon the land,

37 Even those men that did bring up the
evil report upon the land, 'died by the
plague before the Lord.

38 ''But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb
the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men
that went to search the land, lived still.

39 And Moses told these sayings unto all
the children of Israel: 'and the people
mourned greatly.

40 H And they rose up early in the morn-
ing, and gat them up into the top of the
mountain, saying, Lo, ""we be here, and will
go up unto the place which the Lord hath
promised : for we have sinned.
