Numbers 11

mixt mixed

CF. Exodus 12:38. (See Scofield "Exodus 12:38") . Unconverted church members, unable to desire or understand Christ as the Bread of God Exodus 16:35. See Scofield "Exodus 16:35" will clamour for things pleasing to the flesh in the work and way of the church: sumptuous buildings, ornate ritual, an easy doctrine. Alas! they lead away the unspiritual believers also.

two cubits high upon the face of all the earth

The correct rendering is, "about two cubits above the face of the earth," that is, within reach of the people that they might slay them for food. The statement is not that the quails were piled up from the face of the earth two cubits deep. The level of their flight was two cubits above the earth.


i.e. graves of lust. Numbers 33:17
