Numbers 11:30-3530And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.
Quail and a Plague31Then a awind from the Lord sprang up, and it brought quail 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, around the camp, and about two cubits ▼
▼A cubit was about 18 inches or 45 centimetersabove the ground. 32And the people rose all that day and all night and all the next day, and gathered the quail. Those who gathered least gathered ten chomers. ▼
▼A homer was about 6 bushels or 220 litersAnd they spread them out for themselves all around the camp. 33 eWhile the meat was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the Lord was kindled against the people, and fthe Lord struck down the people with a very great plague. 34Therefore the name of that place was called gKibroth-hattaavah, ▼
▼ Kibroth-hattaavah means graves of cravingbecause there they buried the people who had the craving. 35 iFrom Kibroth-hattaavah the people journeyed to jHazeroth, and they remained at kHazeroth.
