Numbers 11

ECB(i) 1
And the people complain evilly in the ears of Yah Veh: and Yah Veh hears and kindles his wrath; and kindles the fire of Yah Veh among them and consumes the ends of the camp. 2 And the people cry to Mosheh; and when Mosheh prays to Yah Veh, the fire quenches. 3 And he calls the name of the place Taberah/Burning: because the fire of Yah Veh kindles among them. 4
And the gathering in their midst desires a desire: and the sons of Yisra El turn to weep and say, Who feeds us flesh? 5 We remember the fish we gratuitously ate in Misrayim; the cucumbers and the melons and the leeks and the onions and the garlic: 6 but now our soul dries: there is naught except this manna in front of our eyes. 7 - and the manna is as coriander seed and the eye thereof as the eye of bdellium. 8 And the people flit and glean it and grind it in millstones, and beat it in a mortar and stew it in skillets and work ashcakes thereof: and the taste thereof is as the taste of juicy oil. 9 And as the dew descends on the camp at night the manna descends thereon. 10 And Mosheh hears the people weep throughout their families - every man in the opening of his tent: and Yah Veh kindles his wrath mightily; and it is vilifying in the eyes of Mosheh. 11 And Mosheh says to Yah Veh, Why vilify your servant? And why find I not charism in your eyes - setting the burden of all this people on me? 12 Conceived I all this people? Birthed I them - that you say to me, Bear them in your bosom, as a fosterer the suckling, to the soil you oathed to their fathers? 13 Whence have I flesh to give to all this people? For they weep to me, saying, Give us flesh to eat! 14 I cannot bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me! 15 And if you work thus with me, slaughter me! I beseech you, slaughter me! if I find charism in your eyes; that I not see my evil. 16
And Yah Veh says to Mosheh, Gather to me seventy men of the elders of Yisra El, whom you know are elders of the people and officers over them; and take them to the tent of the congregation, to stand there with you: 17 and I descend and word with you there: and I set aside of the spirit on you and put it on them to bear the burden of the people with you, that you not bear it yourself alone: 18 and say to the people, hallow youselves by the morrow, and eat flesh: for you wept in the ears of Yah Veh, saying, Who feeds us flesh? For it was good with us in Misrayim! And Yah Veh gave you flesh and you ate 19 - you ate, neither one day nor two days nor five days nor ten days nor twenty days 20 - but a month of days, until it came out your nostrils and became strange to you - because you spurned Yah Veh who is among you and wept at his face, saying, Why came we from Misrayim? 21 And Mosheh says, The people - six hundred thousand on foot in my midst; and you say, Give them flesh to eat a month of days. 22 Slaughter you flocks and oxen for them and find for them? Or gather all the fish of the sea for them and find for them? 23 And Yah Veh says to Mosheh, Is the hand of Yah Veh curtailed? See now whether my word befalls you or not. 24 And Mosheh goes out and words the words of Yah Veh to the people; and gathers the seventy men of the elders of the people and stands them all around the tent. 25 And Yah Veh descends in a cloud and words to him and sets aside of the spirit on him and gives it to the seventy men - elders: and so be it, when the spirit rests on them, they prophesy, but never again. 26 And two of the men in the camp survive - the name of the one, El Dad and the name of the second, Medad: and the spirit rests on them; and they were of those inscribed, who went not to the tent: and they prophesy in the camp. 27 And a lad runs and tells Mosheh and says, El Dad and Medad prophesy in the camp. 28 And Yah Shua the son of Nun, the youth minister of Mosheh, answers and says, My adoni Mosheh, restrain them. 29 And Mosheh says to him, Envy you for my sake? O to give that all the people of Yah Veh be prophets and that Yah Veh give his spirit on them! 30 And Mosheh gathers himself into the camp, he and the elders of Yisra El. 31
And Yah Veh pulls a wind and brings quails from the sea and leaves them by the camp, as a day journey thus and as a day journey thus all around the camp - as two cubits high on the face of the earth. 32 And all that day and all that night and all the morrow day the people rise and gather the quails - he the least gathers ten chomers: and in spreading, they spread them for themselves all around the camp: 33 and while the flesh is yet between their teeth, ere it is cut, Yah Veh kindles his wrath against the people and Yah Veh smites the people with a mighty great stroke. 34 And he calls the name of that place Qibroth Hat Taavah/Tomb of Desire: because there they entomb the people who desire. 35 And the people pull stakes from Qibroth Hat Taavah to Haseroth/Courts; and abide at Haseroth/Courts.
