Numbers 11:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 but now 1our aappetite is gone. There is nothing at all bto look at except this manna." 7 2Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance like that of 3bdellium. 8 The people would go about and gather it and grind it cbetween two millstones or beat it in the mortar, and boil it in the pot and make cakes with it; and its taste was as the taste of dcakes baked with oil. 9 4When the dew fell on the camp at night, the manna would fall ewith it.

The Complaint of Moses

10 Now Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, each man at the doorway of his tent; and the anger of the LORD was kindled greatly, and fMoses was displeased . 11 5So Moses said to the LORD, "Why have You gbeen so hard on Your servant? And why have I not found favor in Your sight, that You have laid the burden of all this people on me? 12 "Was it I who conceived all this people? Was it I who brought them forth, that You should say to me, 'Carry them in your bosom as a h6nurse carries a nursing infant, to the land which 7You swore to their fathers '? 13 "Where am I to get meat to give to 8all this people? For they weep before me, saying, 'Give us meat that we may eat!' 14 "9I alone am not able to carry all this people, because it is too iburdensome for me. 15 "10So if You are going to deal thus with me, please kill me at once, if I have found favor in Your sight, and do not let me see my wretchedness."

Seventy Elders to Assist

16 The LORD therefore said to Moses, "Gather for Me 11seventy men from the elders of Israel, 12whom you know to be the elders of the people and their officers and bring them to the tent of meeting, and let them take their stand there with you.
