Moses Imparted the Seventy Elders - Numbers 11

And when the people complained, it displeased  the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and his anger was  kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and  consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the  camp. Numbers 11:1 

Numbers 11:2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when  Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched.  

Numbers 11:3 And he called the name of the place Taberah:  because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.  

Numbers 11:4 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell  a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and  said, Who shall give us flesh to eat? 

Numbers 11:5 We remember  the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers,  and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the  garlick: 

Numbers 11:6 But now our soul is dried away: there is  nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes. 

Numbers 11:7  And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour  thereof as the colour of bdellium. 

Numbers 11:8 And the people  went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or  beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes  of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil. 

Numbers 11:9  And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the  manna fell upon it.   

Numbers 11:10 Then Moses heard the people weep throughout  their families, every man in the door of his tent: and the  anger of the LORD was kindled greatly; Moses also was  displeased. 

Numbers 11:11 And Moses said unto the LORD,  Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore  have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the  burden of all this people upon me? 

Numbers 11:12 Have I  conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou  shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a  nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land  which thou swarest unto their fathers? 

Numbers 11:13 Whence  should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they  weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.  

Numbers 11:14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because  it is too heavy for me. 

Numbers 11:15 And if thou deal thus with  me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour  in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness.  

Numbers 11:16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me  seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to  be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and  bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they  may stand there with thee. 

Numbers 11:17 And I will come down  and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which  is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall  bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not  thyself alone. 

Numbers 11:18 And say thou unto the people,  Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat  flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying,  Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in  Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall  eat. 

Numbers 11:19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five  days, neither ten days, nor twenty days; 

Numbers 11:20 But even  a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be  loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the  LORD which is among you, and have wept before him,  saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt? 

Numbers 11:21 And  Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six  hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give  them flesh, that they may eat a whole month. 

Numbers 11:22 Shall  the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them?  or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them,  to suffice them? 

Numbers 11:23 And the LORD said unto Moses,  Is the LORD’S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now  whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.  

Numbers 11:24 And Moses went out, and told the people the  words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the  elders of the people, and set them round about the  tabernacle. 

Numbers 11:25 And the LORD came down in a cloud,  and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon  him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to  pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they  prophesied, and did not cease. 

Numbers 11:26 But there remained  two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was  Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit  rested upon them; and they were of them that were  written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they  prophesied in the camp. 

Numbers 11:27 And there ran a young  man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do  prophesy in the camp. 

Numbers 11:28 And Joshua the son of Nun,  the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and  said, My lord Moses, forbid them. 

Numbers 11:29 And Moses said  unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the  LORD’S people were prophets, and that the LORD would  put his spirit upon them! 

Numbers 11:30 And Moses gat him into  the camp, he and the elders of Israel.   

Numbers 11:31 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and  brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp,  as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s  journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it  were two cubits high upon the face of the earth. 

Numbers 11:32  And the people stood up all that day, and all that night,  and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that  gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them  all abroad for themselves round about the camp. 

Numbers 11:33  And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was  chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the  people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great  plague. 

Numbers 11:34 And he called the name of that place  Kibroth-hattaavah: because there they buried the people that  lusted. 

Numbers 11:35 And the people journeyed from Kibroth Hattaavah  unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.
