Numbers 11 (WEBP)
 The people were complaining in the ears of Yahweh. When Yahweh heard it, his anger burned; and Yahweh’s fire burned among them, and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.
 The people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to Yahweh, and the fire abated.
 The name of that place was called Taberah,° because Yahweh’s fire burned among them.
 The mixed multitude that was among them lusted exceedingly; and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, “Who will give us meat to eat?
 We remember the fish, which we ate in Egypt for nothing; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic;
 but now we have lost our appetite. There is nothing at all except this manna to look at.”
 The manna was like coriander seed, and it looked like bdellium.°
 The people went around, gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in mortars, and boiled it in pots, and made cakes of it. Its taste was like the taste of fresh oil.
 When the dew fell on the camp in the night, the manna fell on it.
 Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every man at the door of his tent; and Yahweh’s anger burned greatly; and Moses was displeased.
 Moses said to Yahweh, “Why have you treated your servant so badly? Why haven’t I found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people on me?
 Have I conceived all this people? Have I brought them out, that you should tell me, ‘Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries a nursing infant, to the land which you swore to their fathers’?
 Where could I get meat to give all these people? For they weep before me, saying, ‘Give us meat, that we may eat.’
 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.
 If you treat me this way, please kill me right now, if I have found favor in your sight; and don’t let me see my wretchedness.”
 Yahweh said to Moses, “Gather to me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; and bring them to the Tent of Meeting, that they may stand there with you.
 I will come down and talk with you there. I will take of the Spirit which is on you, and will put it on them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you don’t bear it yourself alone.
 “Say to the people, ‘Sanctify yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, and you will eat meat; for you have wept in the ears of Yahweh, saying, “Who will give us meat to eat? For it was well with us in Egypt.” Therefore Yahweh will give you meat, and you will eat.
 You will not eat just one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days,
 but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils, and it is loathsome to you; because you have rejected Yahweh who is among you, and have wept before him, saying, “Why did we come out of Egypt?” ’ ”
 Moses said, “The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand men on foot; and you have said, ‘I will give them meat, that they may eat a whole month.’
 Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to be sufficient for them? Shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to be sufficient for them?”
 Yahweh said to Moses, “Has Yahweh’s hand grown short? Now you will see whether my word will happen to you or not.”
 Moses went out, and told the people Yahweh’s words; and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them around the Tent.
 Yahweh came down in the cloud, and spoke to him, and took of the Spirit that was on him, and put it on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did so no more.
 But two men remained in the camp. The name of one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad; and the Spirit rested on them. They were of those who were written, but had not gone out to the Tent; and they prophesied in the camp.
 A young man ran, and told Moses, and said, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!”
 Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his chosen men, answered, “My lord Moses, forbid them!”
 Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all Yahweh’s people were prophets, that Yahweh would put his Spirit on them!”
 Moses went into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.
 A wind from Yahweh went out and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, about a day’s journey on this side, and a day’s journey on the other side, around the camp, and about two cubits° above the surface of the earth.
 The people rose up all that day, and all of that night, and all the next day, and gathered the quails. He who gathered least gathered ten homers;° and they spread them all out for themselves around the camp.
 While the meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed, Yahweh’s anger burned against the people, and Yahweh struck the people with a very great plague.
 The name of that place was called Kibroth Hattaavah,° because there they buried the people who lusted.
 From Kibroth Hattaavah the people traveled to Hazeroth; and they stayed at Hazeroth.

Numbers 11 (KJVS)
 And [when] the people H5971 complained H596 (8693), it displeased H7451 H241 the LORD H3068: and the LORD H3068 heard H8085 (8799) [it]; and his anger H639 was kindled H2734 (8799); and the fire H784 of the LORD H3068 burnt H1197 (8799) among them, and consumed H398 (8799) [them that were] in the uttermost parts H7097 of the camp H4264.
 And the people H5971 cried H6817 (8799) unto Moses H4872; and when Moses H4872 prayed H6419 (8691) unto the LORD H3068, the fire H784 was quenched H8257 (8799).
 And he called H7121 (8799) the name H8034 of the H1931 place H4725 Taberah H8404: because the fire H784 of the LORD H3068 burnt H1197 (8804) among them.
 And the mixt multitude H628 that [was] among H7130 them fell a lusting H183 (8694) H8378: and the children H1121 of Israel H3478 also wept H1058 (8799) again H7725 (8799), and said H559 (8799), Who shall give us flesh H1320 to eat H398 (8686)?
 We remember H2142 (8804) the fish H1710, which we did eat H398 (8799) in Egypt H4714 freely H2600; the cucumbers H7180, and the melons H20, and the leeks H2682, and the onions H1211, and the garlick H7762:
 But now our soul H5315 [is] dried away H3002: [there is] nothing at all, beside H1115 this manna H4478, [before] our eyes H5869.
 And the manna H4478 [was] as coriander H1407 seed H2233, and the colour H5869 thereof as the colour H5869 of bdellium H916.
 [And] the people H5971 went about H7751 (8804), and gathered H3950 (8804) [it], and ground H2912 (8804) [it] in mills H7347, or beat H1743 (8804) [it] in a mortar H4085, and baked H1310 (8765) [it] in pans H6517, and made H6213 (8804) cakes H5692 of it: and the taste H2940 of it was as the taste H2940 of fresh H3955 oil H8081.
 And when the dew H2919 fell H3381 (8800) upon the camp H4264 in the night H3915, the manna H4478 fell H3381 (8799) upon it.
 Then Moses H4872 heard H8085 (8799) the people H5971 weep H1058 (8802) throughout their families H4940, every man H376 in the door H6607 of his tent H168: and the anger H639 of the LORD H3068 was kindled H2734 (8799) greatly H3966; Moses H4872 also was displeased H7489 (8804) H5869.
 And Moses H4872 said H559 (8799) unto the LORD H3068, Wherefore hast thou afflicted H7489 (8689) thy servant H5650? and wherefore have I not found H4672 (8804) favour H2580 in thy sight H5869, that thou layest H7760 (8800) the burden H4853 of all this people H5971 upon me?
 Have I conceived H2029 (8804) all this people H5971? have I begotten H3205 (8804) them, that thou shouldest say H559 (8799) unto me, Carry H5375 (8798) them in thy bosom H2436, as a nursing father H539 (8802) beareth H5375 (8799) the sucking child H3243 (8802), unto the land H127 which thou swarest H7650 (8738) unto their fathers H1?
 Whence H370 should I have flesh H1320 to give H5414 (8800) unto all this people H5971? for they weep H1058 (8799) unto me, saying H559 (8800), Give H5414 (8798) us flesh H1320, that we may eat H398 (8799).
 I am not able H3201 (8799) to bear H5375 (8800) all this people H5971 alone H905, because [it is] too heavy H3515 for me.
 And if thou deal H6213 (8802) thus with me, kill H2026 (8798) me, I pray thee, out of hand H2026 (8800), if I have found H4672 (8804) favour H2580 in thy sight H5869; and let me not see H7200 (8799) my wretchedness H7451.
 And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto Moses H4872, Gather H622 (8798) unto me seventy H7657 men H376 of the elders H2205 of Israel H3478, whom thou knowest H3045 (8804) to be the elders H2205 of the people H5971, and officers H7860 (8802) over them; and bring H3947 (8804) them unto the tabernacle H168 of the congregation H4150, that they may stand H3320 (8694) there with thee.
 And I will come down H3381 (8804) and talk H1696 (8765) with thee there: and I will take H680 (8804) of the spirit H7307 which [is] upon thee, and will put H7760 (8804) [it] upon them; and they shall bear H5375 (8804) the burden H4853 of the people H5971 with thee, that thou bear H5375 (8799) [it] not thyself alone.
 And say H559 (8799) thou unto the people H5971, Sanctify H6942 (8690) yourselves against to morrow H4279, and ye shall eat H398 (8804) flesh H1320: for ye have wept H1058 (8804) in the ears H241 of the LORD H3068, saying H559 (8800), Who shall give us flesh H1320 to eat H398 (8686)? for [it was] well H2895 (8804) with us in Egypt H4714: therefore the LORD H3068 will give H5414 (8804) you flesh H1320, and ye shall eat H398 (8804).
 Ye shall not eat H398 (8799) one H259 day H3117, nor two days H3117, nor five H2568 days H3117, neither ten H6235 days H3117, nor twenty H6242 days H3117;
 [But] even a whole month H2320 H3117, until it come out H3318 (8799) at your nostrils H639, and it be loathsome H2214 unto you: because H3282 that ye have despised H3988 (8804) the LORD H3068 which [is] among H7130 you, and have wept H1058 (8799) before H6440 him, saying H559 (8800), Why came we forth H3318 (8804) out of Egypt H4714?
 And Moses H4872 said H559 (8799), The people H5971, among H7130 whom I [am], [are] six H8337 hundred H3967 thousand H505 footmen H7273; and thou hast said H559 (8804), I will give H5414 (8799) them flesh H1320, that they may eat H398 (8804) a whole H3117 month H2320.
 Shall the flocks H6629 and the herds H1241 be slain H7819 (8735) for them, to suffice H4672 (8804) them? or shall all the fish H1709 of the sea H3220 be gathered together H622 (8735) for them, to suffice H4672 (8804) them?
 And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto Moses H4872, Is the LORD’S H3068 hand H3027 waxed short H7114 (8799)? thou shalt see H7200 (8799) now whether my word H1697 shall come to pass H7136 (8799) unto thee or not.
 And Moses H4872 went out H3318 (8799), and told H1696 (8762) the people H5971 the words H1697 of the LORD H3068, and gathered H622 (8799) the seventy H7657 men H376 of the elders H2205 of the people H5971, and set H5975 (8686) them round about H5439 the tabernacle H168.
 And the LORD H3068 came down H3381 (8799) in a cloud H6051, and spake H1696 (8762) unto him, and took H680 (8686) of the spirit H7307 that [was] upon him, and gave H5414 (8799) [it] unto the seventy H7657 elders H2205 H376: and it came to pass, [that], when the spirit H7307 rested H5117 (8800) upon them, they prophesied H5012 (8691), and did not cease H3254 (8804).
 But there remained H7604 (8735) two H8147 [of the] men H582 in the camp H4264, the name H8034 of the one H259 [was] Eldad H419, and the name H8034 of the other H8145 Medad H4312: and the spirit H7307 rested H5117 (8799) upon them; and they [were] of them that were written H3789 (8803), but went not out H3318 (8804) unto the tabernacle H168: and they prophesied H5012 (8691) in the camp H4264.
 And there ran H7323 (8799) a young man H5288, and told H5046 (8686) Moses H4872, and said H559 (8799), Eldad H419 and Medad H4312 do prophesy H5012 (8693) in the camp H4264.
 And Joshua H3091 the son H1121 of Nun H5126, the servant H8334 (8764) of Moses H4872, [one] of his young men H979, answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799), My lord H113 Moses H4872, forbid H3607 (8798) them.
 And Moses H4872 said H559 (8799) unto him, Enviest H7065 (8764) thou for my sake? would God that all the H5414 (8799) LORD’S H3068 people H5971 were prophets H5030, [and] that the LORD H3068 would put H5414 (8799) his spirit H7307 upon them!
 And Moses H4872 gat H622 (8735) him into the camp H4264, he and the elders H2205 of Israel H3478.
 And there went forth H5265 (8804) a wind H7307 from the LORD H3068, and brought H1468 (8799) quails H7958 from the sea H3220, and let [them] fall H5203 (8799) by the camp H4264, as it were a day’s H3117 journey H1870 on this side H3541, and as it were a day’s H3117 journey H1870 on the other side H3541, round about H5439 the camp H4264, and as it were two cubits H520 [high] upon the face H6440 of the earth H776.
 And the people H5971 stood up H6965 (8799) all that day H3117, and all [that] night H3915, and all the next H4283 day H3117, and they gathered H622 (8799) the quails H7958: he that gathered least H4591 (8688) gathered H622 (8804) ten H6235 homers H2563: and they spread H7849 (8799) [them] all abroad H7849 (8800) for themselves round about H5439 the camp H4264.
 And while the flesh H1320 [was] yet H2962 between their teeth H8127, ere it was chewed H3772 (8735), the wrath H639 of the LORD H3068 was kindled H2734 (8804) against the people H5971, and the LORD H3068 smote H5221 (8686) the people H5971 with a very H3966 great H7227 plague H4347.
 And he called H7121 (8799) the name H8034 of that place H4725 Kibrothhattaavah H6914: because there they buried H6912 (8804) the people H5971 that lusted H183 (8693).
 [And] the people H5971 journeyed H5265 (8804) from Kibrothhattaavah H6914 unto Hazeroth H2698; and abode at Hazeroth H2698.
Young’s Literal Translation
Numbers 11 (YLT)
 And the people is evil, as those sighing habitually in the ears of Jehovah, and Jehovah heareth, and His anger burneth, and the fire of Jehovah burneth among them, and consumeth in the extremity of the camp.

 We have remembered the fish which we do eat in Egypt for nought, the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick;
 and now our soul is dry, there is not anything, save the manna, before our eyes.’
 And the manna is as coriander seed, and its aspect as the aspect of bdolach;
 the people have turned aside and gathered it, and ground it with millstones, or beat it in a mortar, and boiled it in a pan, and made it cakes, and its taste hath been as the taste of the moisture of oil.
 And in the descending of the dew on the camp by night, the manna descendeth upon it.

 And Moses saith unto Jehovah, ‘Why hast Thou done evil to Thy servant? and why have I not found grace in Thine eyes-to put the burden of all this people upon me?
 I-have I conceived all this people? I-have I begotten it, that Thou sayest unto me, Carry it in thy bosom as the nursing father beareth the suckling, unto the ground which Thou hast sworn to its fathers?
 Whence have I flesh to give to all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give to us flesh, and we eat.
 I am not able-I alone-to bear all this people, for it is too heavy for me;
 and if thus Thou art doing to me-slay me, I pray Thee; slay, if I have found grace in thine eyes, and let me not look on mine affliction.’
 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, ‘Gather to Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou hast known that they are elders of the people, and its authorities; and thou hast taken them unto the tent of meeting, and they have stationed themselves there with thee,
 and I have come down and spoken with thee there, and have kept back of the Spirit which is upon thee, and have put on them, and they have borne with thee some of the burden of the people, and thou dost not bear it thyself alone.
 ‘And unto the people thou dost say, Sanctify yourselves for to-morrow, and ye have eaten flesh (for ye have wept in the ears of Jehovah, saying, Who doth give us flesh? for we had good in Egypt)-and Jehovah hath given to you flesh, and ye have eaten.
 Ye do not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days;-
 unto a month of days, till that it come out from your nostrils, and it hath become to you an abomination; because that ye have loathed Jehovah, who is in your midst, and weep before Him, saying, Why is this?-we have come out of Egypt!’

 and Jehovah cometh down in the cloud, and speaketh unto him, and keepeth back of the Spirit which is on him, and putteth on the seventy men of the elders; and it cometh to pass at the resting of the Spirit on them, that they prophesy, and do not cease.
 And two of the men are left in the camp, the name of the one is Eldad, and the name of the second Medad, and the spirit resteth upon them, (and they are among those written, and have not gone out to the tent), and they prophesy in the camp;
 and the young man runneth, and declareth to Moses, and saith, ‘Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.’
 And Joshua son of Nun, minister of Moses, one of his young men, answereth and saith, ‘My lord Moses, restrain them.’
 And Moses saith to him, ‘Art thou zealous for me? O that all Jehovah’s people were prophets! that Jehovah would put His Spirit upon them!’
 And Moses is gathered unto the camp, he and the elders of Israel.
 And a spirit hath journeyed from Jehovah, and cutteth off quails from the sea, and leaveth by the camp, as a day’s journey here, and as a day’s journey there, round about the camp, and about two cubits, on the face of the land.
 And the people rise all that day, and all the night, and all the day after, and gather the quails-he who hath least hath gathered ten homers-and they spread them out for themselves round about the camp.
 The flesh is yet between their teeth-it is not yet cut off-and the anger of Jehovah hath burned among the people, and Jehovah smiteth among the people-a very great smiting;
 and one calleth the name of that place Kibroth-Hattaavah, for there they have buried the people who lust.
 From Kibroth-Hattaavah have the people journeyed to Hazeroth, and they are in Hazeroth.
