NIV 11 He asked the LORD, "Why have you brought this trouble on your servant? What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? NLT 12 Did I give birth to them? Did I bring them into the world? Why did you tell me to carry them in my arms like a mother carries a nursing baby? How can I carry them to the land you swore to give their ancestors? NIV 12 Did I conceive all these people? Did I give them birth? Why do you tell me to carry them in my arms, as a nurse carries an infant, to the land you promised on oath to their forefathers? NLT 13 Where am I supposed to get meat for all these people? They keep whining to me, saying, ‘Give us meat to eat!’ NIV 13 Where can I get meat for all these people?

Have them come to the Tent of Meeting, that they may stand there with you. NLT 17 I will come down and talk to you there. I will take some of the Spirit that is upon you, and I will put the Spirit upon them also. They will bear the burden of the people along with you, so you will not have to carry it alone. NIV 17 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take of the Spirit that is on you and put the Spirit on them. They will help you carry the burden of the people so that you will not have to carry it alone. NLT 18 “And say to the people, ‘Purify yourselves, for tomorrow you will have meat to eat. You were whining, and the heard you when you cried, “Oh, for some meat! We were better off in Egypt!” Now the will give you meat, and you will have to eat it. NIV 18 "Tell the people: 'Consecrate yourselves in preparation for tomorrow, when you will eat meat. The LORD heard you when you wailed, "If only we had meat to eat! We were better off in Egypt!" Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will eat it. NLT 19 And it won’t be for just a day or two, or for five or ten or even twenty. NIV 19 You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, NLT 20 You will eat it for a whole month until you gag and are sick of it. For you have rejected the , who is here among you, and you have whined to him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”’” NIV 20 but for a whole month--until it comes out of your nostrils and you loathe it--because you have rejected the LORD, who is among you, and have wailed before him, saying, "Why did we ever leave Egypt?" ' " NLT 21 But Moses responded to the , “There are 600,000 foot soldiers here with me, and yet you say, ‘I will give them meat for a whole month!’ NIV 21 But Moses said, "Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, 'I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!' NLT 22 Even if we butchered all our flocks and herds, would that satisfy them? Even if we caught all the fish in the sea, would that be enough?” NIV 22 Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?" NLT 23 Then the said to Moses, “Has my arm lost its power? Now you will see whether or not my word comes true!” NIV 23 The LORD answered Moses, "Is the LORD's arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you." NLT 24 So Moses went out and reported the ’s words to the people. He gathered the seventy elders and stationed them around the Tabernacle. NIV 24 So Moses went out and told the people what the LORD had said. He brought together seventy of their elders and had them stand around the Tent.

When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did not do so again. NLT 26 Two men, Eldad and Medad, had stayed behind in the camp. They were listed among the elders, but they had not gone out to the Tabernacle. Yet the Spirit rested upon them as well, so they prophesied there in the camp. NIV 26 However, two men, whose names were Eldad and Medad, had remained in the camp. They were listed among the elders, but did not go out to the Tent. Yet the Spirit also rested on them, and they prophesied in the camp. NLT 27 A young man ran and reported to Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!” NIV 27 A young man ran and told Moses, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp." NLT 28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ assistant since his youth, protested, “Moses, my master, make them stop!” NIV 28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses' aide since youth, spoke up and said, "Moses, my lord, stop them!" NLT 29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the ’s people were prophets and that the would put his Spirit upon them all!” NIV 29 But Moses replied, "Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD's people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!" NLT 30 Then Moses returned to the camp with the elders of Israel. NIV 30 Then Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp. NLT 31 Now the sent a wind that brought quail from the sea and let them fall all around the camp. For miles in every direction there were quail flying about three feet above the ground. NIV 31 Now a wind went out from the LORD and drove quail in from the sea. It brought them down all around the camp to about three feet above the ground, as far as a day's walk in any direction. NLT 32 So the people went out and caught quail all that day and throughout the night and all the next day, too. No one gathered less than fifty bushels ! They spread the quail all around the camp to dry. NIV 32 All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers. Then they spread them out all around the camp.

NIV 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the LORD burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. NLT 34 So that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah (which means “graves of gluttony”) because there they buried the people who had craved meat from Egypt. NIV 34 Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had craved other food. NLT 35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the Israelites traveled to Hazeroth, where they stayed for some time. NIV 35 From Kibroth Hattaavah the people traveled to Hazeroth and stayed there.
