(Read Numbers 11 Part 1 First)

27 A young man ran and reported to Moses, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!"

28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses' personal assistant since his youth, protested, "Moses, my master, make them stop!"

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 upon them all!"

30 Then Moses returned to the camp with the leaders of Israel.

31 Now the LORD sent a wind that brought quail from the sea and let them fall into the camp and all around it! For many miles in every direction from the camp there were quail flying about three feet above the ground.*1

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 out all over the camp.2

33 But while they were still eating the meat, the anger of the LORD blazed against the people, and he caused a severe plague to break out among them.

34 So that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah--"the graves of craving"--because they buried the people there who had craved meat from Egypt.

35 From there the Israelites traveled to Hazeroth, where they stayed for some time.
