Psalms 106:15  (King James Version)
And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
 


he gave
78:29-31 Numbers 11:31-34 ; Isaiah 10:16 ; 24:16

but sent
They despised the manna, calling it light or innutritive food. God gave them flesh as they desired, but no blessing accompanied it; and, in consequence, they did not fatten, but grew lean upon it; and many, surfeited by excess, died of disease
Instead of {razon,} "leanness," however, Bp. Lowth supposes we should read {zeran,} "nausea or loathing," which appears to be supported by several ancient versions, and by Numbers 11:20 ,where this portion of the history of the Israelites is
recorded, and where the word {zara} is used, and rendered, "it be loathsome."
