IS And they remembred that God was their Rock, and the High God theii Redeemer.

J6 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their Mouth, and they lied unto him with theit Tongues.

37 Ar their Heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his Covenant.

38 But he being full of Compassion, forgave their Iniquity, and destroyed them not ; yea, many a Time turned he his Anger away, and did not stir up all his Wrath.

39 For he remembred that they were but Flesh ; a Wikd that passeth away, and cometh not again.

40 How oft did they provoke him in the Wilderness, and grieve him in the Deseit.

41 Yea, they turned back, and tempted God, and Limited the Holt One of Israel. .

41 They remembred not his Hand, nor the Day when he delivered them from the Enemy.

43 How he had wrought his Signs in Egypt, and his Wonders in the Field of Zoan:

44 And had turned their Rivers into Blood; and their Floods that they could not drink.

5 We remember the Fish which we did eat in Egypt freely; the Cucumbers, and the Melons, and the Leeks, and the Onions, and the Garlick.

6 But now our Soul is dried away; there is nothing at, all, besides this Manna, before our Eyes.

7 And the Manna was as Coriander-feed, and the Colour thereof as the Colour of Bdellium.

8 And the People went about, and gathered it, and ground it in Mills, or beat it in a Mortar, and baked it in Pans, and made Cakes of it: and the Taste of it was as the Taste of fresh Oyl.

9 And when the Dew sell upon the Camp in the Night, the Manna fell upon it.

I o Then Moses heard the People weep throughout their Families, every Man in the Door of his Tent: and the Anger of the Lord was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased.

II And Moses said unto the Lord, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy Servant? and wherefore have I not found Favour in thy Sight? that thou layest the Burden of all this People upon me?

12 Have I conceived all this People? have I begotten them, that thou shouldst fay unto me, Carry them in thy Bosom (as a nursing Father beareth the Sucking-child) unto the Land which thou svvarest unto their Fathers? ..

13 Whence should I have Flesh to give unto all this People? for they weep unto me, faying, Give us Flesh, that we may eat.

14 I am not able to bear all this People alone, because it is too heavy for me.

15 And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found Favour in thy Sight j and let me not fee my Wretchedness.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy Men of the Elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be Elders of the People, and Officers over them; and bring them unto the Tabernacle of the Congregation, that they may stand there with thee.

17 And I will corrie down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the Spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the Burden of the People with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

18 And say thou unto the People, Sanctify yourselves against To-morrow, and ye shall eat Flesh (for you have wept in the Ears of the Lord, saying, Who shall give us Flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt) therefore the Lord will give you Flesh, and ye shall cat.

19 Ye shall not eat one Day, nor two Days, nor five Days, neither ten Days, nor twenty Days;

20 But even a whole Month, until it come out at your Nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the Lord which is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of E


21 And Moses said, The People amongst whom I am, are fix hundred thousand Footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them Flesh, that they may eat a whole Month.

22 Shall the Flocks and the Herds be slain for them to suffice them? or fliall all the Fish, of the Sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?

2j And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord's Hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my Word shall come to pass unto thee, or not.

24 And Moses went out, and told the People the Words of the Lord, and gathered the seventy Men of the Eldets of the People,' and set them round about the Tabernacle.

25 And the Lord came down in a Cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy Elders : and it came to pass, that when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

26 But there remained two of the Men in the Camp, the Name of the one was Eldad, and the Name of the other Mednd: and the Spirit rested upon them (and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the Tabernacle) and they prophesied in the Camp.

27 And there ran a young Man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the Camp.

28 And Joshua the Son of Nun, the Servant of Moses, one of his young Men, answered and said, My Lord Moses, forbid them.

31 And there went forth a Wind from the Lord, and brought Quails from the Sea, and let them fall by the Camp, as it were a Day's Journey on this Side, and as it were a Day's Journey on the other Side, round about the Camp, and as it were two Cubits high, upon the Face of the Earth.

32 And the People stood up all that Day, and all that Night, and all the next Day, and they gathered the Quails: he that gathered least, gathered ten Homers :' and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the Camp.

33 And while the Flesh was yet between their Teeth, ere it was chewed; the Wrath of the Lord was kindled against the People, and the Lord smote the People with a very great Plague.

1 God rebut et h the Sedition of Miriam and Aaron. 10 Miriams Leprosy is healed at the Prayer of Moses. 14 God esmmandeth her to be shut out of the Hojf.

Ver. 1 A N D Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses, bel\. cause of the Ethiopian, Woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian Woman.

2 And t-!iey said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lord heard it.

3 {Now the Man Moses was very meek, above all the Men which were upon the Face of the Earth.)

4 And the Lqrd spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the Tabernacle of the Congregation. And they three came out.

5 And the Lord came down in the Pillar of the Cloud, and stood in the Door of the Tabernacle, and called Aaron, and Miriam: and they both came forth.

6 And he &id, Hear now my Words: If there be a Prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a Vision, and will speak unto him in a Dream.

9 And the Anger of the Lord was kindled against them, and he departed. ~ 10 And

i o And the Cloud departed from off the Tabernacle, and behold, Miriam became leprous, white as Snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and behold, slie was leprous.

11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my Lord, I beseech thee, lay not the Sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.

12 Let her not be as one dead ; -of whom the Flesh is half consumed, when he cameth out of his Mother's Womb. . .

13 And Moses cried unto the Lord, faying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee. .

14 And the Lord said unto Moses, If her Father had but spit in her Face, should she not be ashamed seven Days? Jet her be shut out from the Camp seven Days, and after that let her be received in again..

15 And Miriam was shut out from the Camp seven Days, and the People journied not till Miriam was brought in again.

16 And afterward the People removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the Wilderness of Paran.


i The Names, 17 Injlruclionsy 21 and Ails of the Spies: 26 Their false Report.

Ver. 1 A ND the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

J\ 2 Send thou Men, that they may search the Land of Canaan, which I give unto the Children of Israel: of every Tribe of their Fathers shall ye send a Man, every one a Ruler among them.

3 And Moses by the Commandment of the Lord, sent them from the Wilderness of Paran: all those Men were Heads of the Children of Israel.

21 So they went up and searched the Land, from the Wilderness of Zin, unto Rehob, as Men come to Hamath.

22 And they ascended by the South, and came unto Hebron.

23 And they came unto the Brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a Branch with one Cluster of Grapes, and they bare it between two upon a Staff; and they brought of the Pomegranates, and of the Figs.

24 The Place was called the Brook Eshcol, because of The Cluster of Grapes which the Children of Israel cut down from thence.
