Numbers 11

RSV 1 And the people complained in the hearing of the LORD about their misfortunes; and when the LORD heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them, and consumed some outlying parts of the camp. NIV 1 Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the LORD, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp. RSV 2 Then the people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to the LORD, and the fire abated. NIV 2 When the people cried out to Moses, he prayed to the LORD and the fire died down. RSV 3 So the name of that place was called Tab'erah, because the fire of the LORD burned among them. NIV 3 So that place was called Taberah, because fire from the LORD had burned among them. RSV 4 Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving; and the people of Israel also wept again, and said, "O that we had meat to eat! NIV 4 The rabble with them began to crave other food, and again the Israelites started wailing and said, "If only we had meat to eat! RSV 5 We remember the fish we ate in Egypt for nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic; NIV 5 We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost--also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. RSV 6 but now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at." NIV 6 But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!" RSV 7 Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance like that of bdellium. NIV 7 The manna was like coriander seed and looked like resin. RSV 8 The people went about and gathered it, and ground it in mills or beat it in mortars, and boiled it in pots, and made cakes of it; and the taste of it was like the taste of cakes baked with oil. NIV 8 The people went around gathering it, and then ground it in a handmill or crushed it in a mortar. They cooked it in a pot or made it into cakes. And it tasted like something made with olive oil. RSV 9 When the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell with it. NIV 9 When the dew settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down. RSV 10 Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every man at the door of his tent; and the anger of the LORD blazed hotly, and Moses was displeased. NIV 10 Moses heard the people of every family wailing, each at the entrance to his tent. The LORD became exceedingly angry, and Moses was troubled. RSV 11 Moses said to the LORD, "Why hast thou dealt ill with thy servant? And why have I not found favor in thy sight, that thou dost lay the burden of all this people upon me? 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? RSV 12 Did I conceive all this people? Did I bring them forth, that thou shouldst say to me, 'Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries the sucking child, to the land which thou didst swear to give their fathers?' 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? RSV 13 Where am I to get meat to give to all this people? For they weep before me and say, 'Give us meat, that we may eat.' NIV 13 Where can I get meat for all these people? They keep wailing to me, 'Give us meat to eat!' RSV 14 I am not able to carry all this people alone, the burden is too heavy for me. NIV 14 I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me. RSV 15 If thou wilt deal thus with me, kill me at once, if I find favor in thy sight, that I may not see my wretchedness." NIV 15 If this is how you are going to treat me, put me to death right now--if I have found favor in your eyes--and do not let me face my own ruin." RSV 16 And the LORD said to Moses, "Gather for me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; and bring them to the tent of meeting, and let them take their stand there with you. NIV 16 The LORD said to Moses: "Bring me seventy of Israel's elders who are known to you as leaders and officials among the people. Have them come to the Tent of Meeting, that they may stand there with you. RSV 17 And I will come down and talk with you there; and I will take some of the spirit which is upon you and put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you may not bear it yourself 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. RSV 18 And say to the people, 'Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat; for you have wept in the hearing of the LORD, saying, "Who will give us meat to eat? For it was well with us in Egypt." Therefore the LORD will give you meat, and you shall eat. 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. RSV 19 You shall not eat one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days, NIV 19 You will not eat it for just one day, or two days, or five, ten or twenty days, RSV 20 but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the LORD who is among you, and have wept before him, saying, "Why did we come forth out of 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?" ' " RSV 21 But Moses said, "The people among whom I am number six hundred thousand on foot; and thou hast said, 'I will give them meat, that they may eat 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!' RSV 22 Shall flocks and herds be slaughtered for them, to suffice them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?" 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?" RSV 23 And the LORD said to Moses, "Is the LORD's hand shortened? Now you shall see whether my word will come true for you or not." 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." RSV 24 So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and placed them round about the tent. 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. RSV 25 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the spirit that was upon him and put it upon the seventy elders; and when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did so no more. NIV 25 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took of the Spirit that was on him and put the Spirit on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did not do so again. RSV 26 Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the spirit rested upon them; they were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied 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. RSV 27 And a young man ran and told 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." RSV 28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, one of his chosen men, said, "My lord Moses, forbid them." NIV 28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses' aide since youth, spoke up and said, "Moses, my lord, stop them!" RSV 29 But Moses said to him, "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD's people were prophets, that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!" 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!" RSV 30 And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp. NIV 30 Then Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp. RSV 31 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and it brought quails from the sea, and let them fall beside the camp, about a day's journey on this side and a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and about two cubits above the face of the earth. 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. RSV 32 And the people rose all that day, and all night, and all the next day, and gathered the quails; he who gathered least gathered ten homers; and they spread them out for themselves all around the camp. 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. RSV 33 While the meat was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague. 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. RSV 34 Therefore the name of that place was called Kib'roth-hatta'avah, because there they buried the people who had the craving. NIV 34 Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had craved other food. RSV 35 From Kib'roth-hatta'avah the people journeyed to Haze'roth; and they remained at Haze'roth. NIV 35 From Kibroth Hattaavah the people traveled to Hazeroth and stayed there.
