Numbers 11:10-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Complaint of Moses

And why have I not found favor in Your sight, that You have laid the burden of all this people on me?12 Was it I who conceived all this people? Was it I who brought them forth, that You should say to me, ‘Carry them in your bosom as a [c]nurse carries a nursing infant, to the land which You swore to their fathers’?13 Where am I to get meat to give to all this people? For they weep before me, saying, ‘Give us meat that we may eat!’14 I alone am not able to carry all this people, because it is too [d]burdensome for me.
