Now when the people complained in the hearing of the Lord about their misfortunes, the Lord heard it and his anger was kindled. Then the fire of the Lord burned against them, and consumed some outlying parts of the camp.
But the people cried out to Moses; and Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire abated.
So that place was called Taberah, a because the fire of the Lord burned against them.
The rabble among them had a strong craving; and the Israelites also wept again, and said, "If only we had meat to eat!
We remember the fish we used to eat in Egypt for nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic;
but now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at."
Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color was like the color of gum resin.
