Numbers 11:31-35 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Quail in the Camp

31 A wind sent by the Lord came up and blew quail in from the sea; it dropped them all around the camp. They were flying three feet[a] off[b] the ground for about a day’s journey in every direction. 32 The people were up all that day and night and all the next day gathering the quail—the one who took the least gathered fifty bushels[c]—and they spread them out all around the camp.[d]

33 While the meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed, the Lord’s anger burned against the people, and the Lord struck them with a very severe plague. 34 So they named that place Kibroth-hattaavah,[e] because there they buried the people who had craved the meat.

35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the people moved on to Hazeroth[f] and remained there.

The Quails

31 Then a wind went out from the Lord, and it brought quails 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, all around the camp, about two cubits deep on the ground. 32 So the people worked all that day and night and all the next day, gathering the quails; the least anyone gathered was ten homers; and they spread them out for themselves all around the camp. 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth, before it was consumed, the anger of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord struck the people with a very great plague. 34 So that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah,[a] because there they buried the people who had the craving. 35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the people journeyed to Hazeroth.
