← Numbers 10   Numbers 12 →         

1 And the people were as those murmuring evil in the ears of Jehovah; and Jehovah heard, and His anger was·​·fierce; and the fire of Jehovah burnt among them, and ate· them ·up at the edge of the camp.

2 And the people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to Jehovah, and the fire was drowned.

3 And he called the name of that place Taberah*; for the fire of Jehovah burnt among them.

4 And the gathering crowd who was in the midst of them lusted with a lusting; and they turned·​·back and wept, even the sons of Israel, and they said, Who shall cause us to eat flesh?

5 We remember the fish, which we ate in Egypt for·​·nothing; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leek, and the onions, and the garlic;

6 but now our soul is dry; there is nothing at all except for the manna before our eyes.

7 And the manna, it was as the seed of coriander, and its aspect as the aspect of bdellium.

8 And the people went·​·around, and collected it, and ground it with the millstones, or crushed it in the mortar, and cooked it in the pan, and made it into cakes; and its taste was as the taste of moist oil.

9 And when the dew came·​·down upon the camp at night, the manna came·​·down on it.

10 And Moses heard the people weeping for their families, a man at the entrance of his tent; and the anger of Jehovah was· very ·fierce; and it was·​·evil in the eyes of Moses.

11 And Moses said to Jehovah, Why hast Thou done·​·evil to Thy servant? And why have I not found grace in Thine eyes, so·​·that Thou settest the burden of all this people upon me?

12 Have I conceived all this people? Have I begotten them, that Thou shouldest say to me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a faithful father carries the nursing infant, onto the ground which Thou promised to their fathers?

13 Whence should I have flesh to give to all this people? For they weep unto me, saying, give us flesh, and we will eat.

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

15 And if Thou do as·​·thus to me, killing kill me, I pray Thee, if I have found grace in Thine eyes; and let me not see my evil.

16 And Jehovah said to Moses, Gather to Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest that they be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and take them to the Tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall stand·​·forth there with thee.

17 And I will come·​·down and speak with thee there; and I will reserve from the spirit which is on thee, and will set it on them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, and thou shalt not bear it of thyself alone.

18 And say thou to the people, Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat flesh; for you have wept in the ears of Jehovah, saying, Who shall cause us to eat flesh? For it was·​·good for us in Egypt. And Jehovah will give you flesh, and you shall eat.

19 You shall not eat one day, nor two·​·days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days;

20 but until a month of days, until it go·​·out from your nostrils, and it be repugnant to you; because surely you have rejected Jehovah, who is among you, and have wept before Him, saying, Why this that we went·​·out from Egypt?

21 And Moses said, The people among whom I am are six hundred thousand footmen; and Thou hast said, I will give them flesh, and they shall eat a month of days.

22 Shall flock and herd be slaughtered for them, and find some for them? Shall all the fish of the sea be gathered·​·together for them, and find for them?

23 And Jehovah said to Moses, Is the hand of Jehovah shortened? Now thou shalt see if My word shall befall thee or not.

24 And Moses went·​·out, and spoke to the people the words of Jehovah, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and stood them all around the Tabernacle.

25 And Jehovah came·​·down in a cloud, and spoke to him, and reserved from the spirit that was on him, and put it on the seventy men, the elders; and it was, that when the spirit rested on them, they prophesied, and did not add to it.

26 But there were left two of the men in the camp; the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the second, Medad; and the spirit rested upon them; and they were among those who were written, but went· not ·out to the Tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.

27 And there ran a lad, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.

28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, from his young·​·men, answered and said, My lord Moses, hold· them ·back.

29 And Moses said to him, Art· thou ·jealous for me? And who would grant that all of the people of Jehovah were prophets, and that Jehovah would give His spirit on them?

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

31 And a wind journeyed from Jehovah, and carried·​·away the selaw* from the sea, and let them down on the camp, as the road here for a day, and as the road there for a day, all around the camp, and as two·​·cubits high upon the face of the land.

32 And the people arose all that day, and all the night, and all the day of the morrow, and they gathered the selaw; he that did·​·less gathered ten homers; and spreading they spread them for themselves all around the camp.

33 And the flesh was still between their teeth, before it was cut·​·off, and the anger of Jehovah was·​·fierce among the people, and Jehovah smote among the people with a very great smiting.

34 And he called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaavah; because there they buried the people that lusted.

35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the people journeyed to Chazeroth; and were in Chazeroth.

Explanation of Numbers 11      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-3. A state of temptation is described, causing aversion from the Lord, and the predominance of lusts in the external man; but intercession is made and deliverance follows.

Verses 4-6 and 10-15. Another state of temptation succeeds, in which there is a desire, externally, to return into the delights of the merely natural man, and a want of confidence in the Lord internally, resulting in a state of despair.

Verses 7-9. The good of truth is described, with which, in the temptation, the man of the church is disgusted.

Verses 16-18. Concerning the orderly arrangement of truths by the Lord, revelation, the conjunction of truth with good, and the appropriation of good.

Verses 19-23. But the corrupted man desires only natural delights; while the truly spiritual man is in doubt and distress, and consequently receives consolation.

Verses 24-30. And now, therefore, a new arrangement of truths actually occurs, and consequently revelation, and the power to teach.

Verses 31-35. Besides which, there is an abundant supply of natural delight, which, with the true man of the church, is good legitimately appropriated; but the wicked pervert this good by application to lusts, and, therefore, suffer the destruction of remains, and total vastation. But the good experience a change of state, coming into peace and tranquillity in externals.
