Numbers 14:1-4

The People Rebel

1Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people awept that night. 2And all the people of Israel bgrumbled against Moses and Aaron. The whole congregation said to them, “Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or cwould that we had died in this wilderness! 3Why is the Lord bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? dOur wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?” 4And they said to one another, e“Let us choose a leader and fgo back to Egypt.”
