Numbers 11

The burning at Taberah quenched by Moses' prayer.

Numbers 11:1 And whan ye people waxed vnpaciet, it displeased sore ye eares of ye LORDE. And whan the LORDE herde it, his wrath waxed whote, & the fyre of ye LORDE burnt amoge them, so yt it cosumed the vttemost of ye hoost. Numbers 11:2 The cryed the people vnto Moses. And Moses prayed vnto the LORDE. So ye fyre quenched. Numbers 11:3 And the place was called Tabera, because the fyre of the LORDE burnt amonge them.

The people lust for flesh, and loathe manna.

Numbers 11:4 Then the comon sorte of people yt was amoge them, fell a lustinge, and sat & wepte wt the children of Israel, and sayde: Who wyll geue vs flesh to eate? Numbers 11:5 We remembre the fish, the we ate in Egipte for naught, & Cucumbers, Melouns, lekes, onyons, & garleke: Numbers 11:6 But now is oure soule dryed awaye, oure eyes se nothinge then the Manna. Numbers 11:7 The Manna was like Coriader sede, and to loke vpon, like Bedellion. Numbers 11:8 And the people ranne here and there, & gathered it, & grounde it in Milles, and beate it in morters, and baked it in panes, and made cakes of it, and it had a taist like an oyle cake. Numbers 11:9 And whan ye dew fell vpon the tetes in the night, ye Manna fell therwith.

Moses complaineth of his charge.

Numbers 11:10 Now whan Moses herde the people wepe amoge their kynreds, euery one in his tet dore, then the wrath of the LORDE waxed exceadinge whote. And it greued Moses also. Numbers 11:11 And Moses sayde vnto the LORDE: Why vexest thou thy seruaunte? And why fynde not I fauoure in yi sight, yt thou layest ye burthen of all this people vpo me? Numbers 11:12 Haue I the coceaued all this people, or begotten them, that thou shuldest saye vnto me: Cary them in thine armes (as a nurse beareth a childe) vnto the londe, that thou hast sworne vnto their fathers? Numbers 11:13 Where shal I get flesh, to geue all this people? They wepe before me, and saye: Geue vs flesh, that we maye eate. Numbers 11:14 I am not able to beare all this people alone, for it is to heuy for me. Numbers 11:15 And yf thou wylt deale thus wt me: O kyll me then, yf I haue founde fauoure in thy sight, that I se not my wrechednesse.

God divideth his burden into seventy elders.

Numbers 11:16 And the LORDE saide vnto Moses: Gather vnto me seuentye men amonge the Elders of Israel, whom thou knowest yt they are the Elders in ye people and officers ouer them, and brynge them before the Tabernacle of witnesse, and set them there with the: Numbers 11:17 then wil I come downe, and talke with the euen there, & take of thy sprete that is vpon the, and putt it vpon them, that they maye beare the burthen of the people with the, yt thou beare not all alone. Numbers 11:18 And vnto ye people thou shalt saye: Sactifye yor selues agaynst tomorow, yt ye maye eate flesh: for youre wepynge is come into the eares of the LORDE, ye that saye: Who shal geue vs flesh to eate? for we were well at ease in Egipte. Therfore shal the LORDE geue you flesh to eate, Numbers 11:19 not one daye, not two, not fyue, not ten, not twentye dayes longe, Numbers 11:20 but a moneth longe, tyll it go out at youre noses, and tyll ye lothe it: euen because ye haue refused the LORDE, which is amonge you, and haue wepte before him, & sayde: Wherfore wente we out of Egipte? Numbers 11:21 And Moses sayde: Sixe hundreth thousande fote men are there of the people amoge whom I am, and thou sayest: I wyll geue you flesh to eate a moneth loge. Numbers 11:22 Shal the shepe and oxen be slayne to be ynough for them? Or shal all the fishes of the see be gathered together, to be sufficient for them? Numbers 11:23 The LORDE sayde vnto Moses: Is the LORDES hande shortened then? But now shalt thou se, whether my wordes shall be fulfilled in dede, or no?

Numbers 11:24 And Moses wete out, and tolde the people ye worde of the LORDE, and gathered the seuentye men amonge the Eldest of the people, & set them rounde aboute the Tabernacle. Numbers 11:25 Then came the LORDE downe in a cloude, & spake vnto him, & toke of the sprete yt was vpon him, & put it vpon the seuentie Elders. And whan the sprete rested vpon them, they prophecied, and ceassed not. Numbers 11:26 But in the hoost there remayned yet two men, of whom the one was called Eldad, ye other Medad, & the sprete rested vpo them. For they were wrytten vp also, & yet were they not gone out vnto the Tabernacle, and they prophecied in the hoost. Numbers 11:27 Then ran there a lad, & tolde Moses, & sayde: Eldad and Medad prophecie in the hoost. Numbers 11:28 Then answered Iosua ye sonne of Nun Moses seruaunte (whom he had chosen) and sayde: My lorde Moses, for bydde them. Numbers 11:29 But Moses sayde vnto him: Art thou gelous for my sake? wolde God, yt all the people of ye LORDE coulde prophecie, and that ye LORDE wolde geue them his sprete. Numbers 11:30 So Moses and the Elders of Israel gat them to the hoost.

Quails are given in wrath at Kibroth-hattaavah.

Numbers 11:31 Then wente out the wynde from ye LORDE, & caused quayles to come from the see, & scatred the ouer the hoost, here a dayes iourney, there a dayes iourney rounde aboute ye hoost, two cubytes hye aboue ye earth. Numbers 11:32 Then the people stode vp all that daye and all yt night, and all the nexte daye, and gathered quayles: and he that gathered the leest, gathered ten Homers, & they kylled them rounde aboute the hoost. Numbers 11:33 But whyle ye flesh was yet betwene their tethe, & or euer it was vp, the wrath of the LORDE waxed whote amonge the people, and slewe them with an exceadinge greate slaughter. Numbers 11:34 Therfore is the same place called the graues of lust, because the voluptuous people were buried there. Numbers 11:35 From the lustgraues toke the people their iourney vnto Hazeroth, and abode at Hazeroth.
