                 QUAIL FOR TWO MILLION

A        CRY of horror and grief went up from the people of Israel. God's sudden, aw-
ful punishment reminded them of the manner in which the Creato r had struck dur ing
the time of the Passover one year previously. Then the victims had been Egyptians.
Thi s time there also were Egyptians, because Egyptians who had come in the mixed
multitude wirh the Israelites were in part to blame. Bur a large numbe r of the offenders
were now Israel ites.

                                Israel Cries for Mercy
      Because the shoot ing, explod ing bolts of fl ame struck offenders in every part of
all the camps, Moses was quickly aware of what was going on. Immediately, however,
there was a rush of officers from all the camps to tell Moses what was raking place,
and to inform him that the people were screaming for mercy and asking for Moses to
pray to God to Stop the liery explosions. (Numbers 11:2.)
      When Moses learned rhat so many people had already been slain by the lire from
God, he immediately went into his tent, fell on his knees and begged the Creator to
stop killing the people.
      Th e deadly spur ts of flame gradually disappeared after Moses' diligent prayer.
Terr ified people who had raced wildly about the camps eventually returned to their
tents to count their dead.
       Nex t day was a bitter one for the Israelites. Many blackened bodies were buried
in the shifting sands of the high desert country. God's wrath had such a deep effect on
many of the people that they named the area Taberah, which meant "a burning."

               But in spi te of this terrible warni ng to complainers, many of the people conti n-
          ued to murmur about their condit ions. Most of them were the stra nge rs who were
          among the Israelites, but their bitterness spread throughout the camps like some aw-
          ful, contagious diseases.
            The ma in food of the peop le was still
          ma nna, a wonderful, energizing        food
          direct from God . At Sinai, the gathering
          of manna wasn't much of a task, inasmu ch
          as the peop le had plenty of time for doing
          it. But since leaving the Sinai valley, some
          felt that it was a burde n to have to get up
          very early to gather the manna, and then
          stan to travel. T his, therefore, was one of
          the things the complainers began to be
          bitter about. Although those slain by God
          had been buried only a short time, manna
          became a subject loudly and sarcastica lly
          discussed by increasing thousands. T he
          poisonous tho ught promoted by these
          complainers was that manna was a poo r
          substit ute for the food they had enjoyed
          in Egypt.
             "Ma n na doesn't give us e noug h
          strength for th is tiring journey," was the
          unhappy comment from the grumblers.
          "W hat we need is meat!" ( N umbers
          11:4. )
            Mankind then, as now, was very prone
          to the powe r of suggestion. More and
          mo re Israel ites who had the best of inten-
          tions fell victims to the influence of the
          lustful, untruthful    rema rks circuiating
          about the camps.
             "Manna can't take the place of the food
          we had in Egypt ," the whiners kept saying.
          " If we don 't have more of a variety of

                 thin and weak! Probably many of us will even die!
                      Such foolish remarks caused an increasing number of Israeli tes to doubt that
                 man na was anyt hing more than what was requ ired to barely keep people alive. At
                 the same time, the comp lainers kept remind ing others of the wonde rful foods they
                 had en joyed in the past.
                      "Remember the crisp, succulent cucumbe rs anti the swee t, mellow , mouth-water-
                 ing melons we liked so well in Egypt?" they asked of all who would listen. "If God can
                 give us so much of this tiresome man na, why can't He also produce foods like those?
                 \\7hy are we denied simple, delicious vegetables like garlic and onions' Or even leeks,
                 those plants with the un usuall y luscious flavor? We need such things to bui ld our
                 morale, and we need meat to build our streng th!" ( N umbers II ;5-6.)

                                                    Bitterness Grows
                      When reminded by his officers of the ill feeling that prevailed, Moses was dis-
                 tressed. He knew that some of the peopl e wou ld always complai n, regardless of what
                 the conditions were. But so much complaint, t ight on rhe heels of the mass slaying
                 by God, pointed to nothing but growing trou ble.
                      The bitter attitude grew by the hour. Offi cers came to Moses more frequently
                 with reporrs that there was even wailing and crying by Israelites who felt that God
                 was being unmerciful to rhem by denying them the foods they craved-c-especially
                 meat. A wave of self-pity and semi-hysteria seemed to be passing over all the camps.
                      Moses was sick with discouragement. He told his aides that he didn 't wish to be
                 disturbed for a wh ile, and went into rhe inne r parr of his tent to ptay.
                       "What have I done," he asked God , " to cause this trouble to come on me? How
                 can I be a fathe r to all these thousands of unruly people ? Must I try to carry them,
                 like babies, to the land You have prom ised them ? How can I stop their grow ing de-
                 mand for other kinds of food?"
                      "Do you feel," God asked Moses, "th at this cask I have given you is too great?"
                      "I only know," Moses replied, "that the wild demands of thousands of people ate
                 roo much for me. I can't see any way of taking care of wha t they ask for, a t of han-
                 dling them while the y are in such an extreme state of mind. If I fail to give them the
                 foods they are dema nding, they are likely to get entirely out of cont rol. If You allow
                 that to happen, then please take my life now. I don't want to be here to witness such
                 rebellion." (Numbers 11; 10-15. )
                      "T he people are overcome with false pity for themselves," God told Moses. "You
                 must nor be likewise. If you feel that your responsibility is tOO great, then choose sev-
                 ent y of the strongest leaders and most honorable men among the older men of Israel

          and have them come to the tabernacle. T here I shall meet you, and shall give them
          the special understanding I have given you. They will then realize how you are being
          troubled by the people. They will help you by pointing out to the people that you are
          right in what you requ ire of them, even though those requirements may at times seem
          harsh ." (Verses 16-17. )
               "Will this cause the people to cease their complaining?" Moses asked God .
               "No," God answered. "But from then on none of them can honestly say that
          I haven 't given them fair warn ing for anything tha t may come because of their dis-
          obedience. Warn them to Stop their complain ing and prepare for a feast of flesh. Tell
          them that this feast won 't last just one day, two days, five days nor twenty days. Tell
          them it will last a whole mont h, and that they shall have so much flesh to eat that it
          will become sicken ing to them. Te ll the m that as they have comp lained so much
          because of not having anything but manna, they won't be able to hold the flesh on
          their stomachs."
                "But how can you provide' meat for over two mill ion people for a whole month?"
          Moses inqu ired. "M ust all our flocks a nd herds be slaughtered to take care of the appe-
          tites of the people for flesh! Or do You have some way of bringing in a huge amount
          of fish from the Red Sea?"
                "W hy do you seem to doubt that I have power to take care of these matters?"
          God inquired. "Go do as I have commanded, and you shall soon witness what I have
          planned." (N umbers 11: 18-23. )
               Moses at once told his officers to tell the people that God had been greatly moved
          by their comp laints, and would send them so much flesh that they would wish they had
          never asked for it.
              This news broug ht great excitement to nearl y every camp. Many people ran
          from tent to tent , loudly and joyfully repeating what Moses' officers had told them.
          Thi s, they imagine d, was something to celebrate. Before long musicians had gathered
          here and there, and there was singing and dancing in many areas.
              Most of the celebrants were interested on ly in God 's pro mising them meat for
          a whole month. Very few seemed to be concerned by His remark that they would
          regret asking for it.

                                           Seventy Elders Cho sen

                Meanwhile, Moses chose the seventy elders who were the most capable, and called
          for them to meet before the tabernacle. After the group of carefully picked men had
          arrived, Moses went into the rabernacle and fell on his knees to await God's pres-
          ence. It wasn't long before the cloud settled down over the tabern acle.

                      "From this moment on," God said to Moses, "the seventy men you have picked
                 will have a special gift of understanding. They will have greater respect for Me. They
                 will realize with out any doubt that you are My chosen servant, and they will have
                 greater respect for you. They will have a better attitude and more correct outlo ok
                 on matters having to do with the peop le's reaching Canaan. They will have the .abil-
                 ity to show at least some of the Israelit es how wt ong they are in complaining against
                 you. Thus you won't feel that you are so alone in YOut stru ggle to keep the people
                       It happened JUSt as God had foretold . The elders began to talk among them-
                 selves with great harmony and understanding. When Moses came Out of the raber-
                 nacle to join them in hours of brotherly conversation, there was a most unusual spirit
                 of harm ony and wisdom . Later, when the elders went back to their various camps,
                 their special understanding greatly enabled them to help the people in many mat-
                 ters. (Numbe rs 11:24-25 .)
                      Two of the seventy elders chosen by Moses, Eldad and Medad, weren't able to
                 get to the tabernacl e. But they, as well as the others, were at the same time imbued
                 with the special understandi ng that was a gift from God. Fired with inspiration, these
                 two men walked out among the peop le and made moving remarks proving God's and
                 Moses' authority.
                      "W hy do you comp lain and why do you listen to those who complain?" they
                 asked the people. "God is very displeased by what has been going on. Unless there
                 is a great change of att itude soon among the people, man y of you will die within a
                 very short time!"
                      A large crowd gat hered around Eldad and Medad. Bystanders regarded the two
                 with anyth ing from mild interest to amazement as the two elders prophesied of thin gs
                 rhar had to do with God's futu re plan for the Israelires, and in such a mann er that
                 very few lisreners failed to show the greates t respect for them. ( Verse 26 .)
                      Monrhs prev iously, when Moses had earnestly prayed for the Israelites to     W in

                 in a long battle with at tacking Amalekites, a youn g man by the name of Joshua had
                 led the Israelites' army to battle while Aaron and H ut held up Moses' hands as
                 Moses prayed. (Exod us 17 :8-13.) Thi s same young man happened to be present when
                 another young man ran and told Moses that Eldad and Medad were speaking to the
                 people. J oshua realized at once that the two couldn't have spoken so well and in such
                 an informed m anner without inspiration from some source.
                     T his troubled Joshua. ~e felt that two men making such an impression on the
                 people might cause the Israelires to seek a new leader.
                      "You should send men to stop rhem, sir!" Jos hua warned. "Otherwise, rhey could

           cause many people to regard them as leaders, and th is could cause trouble for you at
           this time when the peop le are showing so much disobedience."
                Moses wasn't worried, however. He realized th at this was a case of God having
           given Eldad and Medad special understa nding along with the sixty-eight other elders
           who had been chosen to help bear a part of M oses' responsibility.
                "Don't be concerned that they'll be any trouble to me," Moses told J oshua. "In
           fact, I wish every Israelite could be insp ired with their G od-given understandi ng of
           what it means to all of us to obey." (Numbers 11: 27-30. )

                                              T he Quail A rrive
                After the elders had retu rned to th eir camps and Moses had gone to his rent , a
           strong southwest wind came up. It increased to such velocity that the people began
           to be concerned about their tent s being blown down. Most of them forgot abo ut the ir
           tents, however, when they noticed a peculiar dark streak gradually growing larger on
           the south west horizon. This strange sight caused great concern among the people. Some
           thought it was merely a low cloud or a bank of fog, thoug h fog in that desert area
           would have been quite unusua l.
                Even Moses was puzzled when his atte ntion was brought to it. But when he
           noticed an increasing number of birds flying swiftly to the northeast, he abruptly
           realized how G od was about to supply the meat the Israelites had been dema nding.
           He remembered how G od had sent flocks of quails (Exo dus 16: 11-13 ) when the
           people had first comp lained about having to steadily eat mann a.
                "Have it annou nced to all the camps at once that G od is now providi ng all the
           flesh for which the peop le have been begging ," Moses instructed an aide. "T ell them
           that God isn't giving it to them to supp ly any need, but tha t He's giving it to them
           as a lesson of obedience they'll soon und erstand."
                The dark cloud grew more swiftly. It was on ly a littl e while later that the sky
           became blackened with a tremendous flock of quails. Man y of them flew only three or
           four feet above the ground. Many fell to the gro und exhausted and ran about the
           ground, trying to get their tired bodies int o the air again.
                W hen the amazed Israelites realized that they were being set upo n by such tasty
           fowl, they seized the nearest useful ob jects, such as sticks and spears and boards, and
           started beating low-flying birds to the gro und, and stri king those exhaust ed birds
           which scampered about in all directions.
                While some excitedly slaughte red birds, others hastily plucked them. In spite of
           the strong winds, the camps soon became alive with an unusually large nu mber of
           fi res over which quails were hastily roasted.

                         After months of existing mostly on mann a, the Israelites were so excited because
                    of receiving meat rhar rhey tore and bit and chewed at the flesh of the birds as though
                    they had been starved. They took turn s catch ing, roasting and eating, but it required

          many hours for all of rhem ro ger their fill of the roasted quail.
              All rhar day the strong wind persisted, and flocks of quails passed over the
          camps continuousl y. T he excired people flailed away at them, knocking the birds ro
          rhe gro und, snatching rhem up ro swiftly prepare them for roasring or ro pluck and
          salt them for earing later.
                As sundown approached, ir was expected that the wind would die down and thar
          the birds-if they continued ro pass over- would manage ro fly ar high er alrirudes.
          But the strong wind continued all night. And all nighr , by rhe light of bright camp-
          fires, the Israelites went on barring down all birds within reach.
                 N ext morn ing the wind still hadn't abated. Flock after Rock of quails skimmed
          over rhe camps. There were so many fowl that they were seen fifteen ro twenty miles
          on both sides of the cam p areas. The wind continued all thar day, and hordes of birds
          with it. There seemed ro be no end ro them. By th is time many people were still down-
          ing them, but not with the eagern ess of the preceding day.
               Near sundown the wind fi nally srarred ro subside. The flocks of quail s became
          smaller and smaller, unti l no more , even single stragglers , were seen ro pass nver.
               T housands of weary quai l-catchers slumped upon their beds. Regard less of their
          obvious desire to get even mo re fowl than they could use, they were relieved when
          there were no more ro try ro get. After two days and one night of bird-bagging, the
          camps were full of thou sands and thousands of rons of fowl. Besides the milli ons of
          quails already eaten, ther e were piles of them between tents, count less num bers strung
          up ro dry and huge amounts being roasted, boiled, fried or barbecued.
               N ot everyone had tried his hand at bagging the quails because nor all the Israel-
          ites had lusted for meat. But there were more than a half-mill ion ab le-bodied men in
          the camps, and few of them refrained from the spa rr of quail-catching. On e can get
          some idea of the amount of fowl broug ht out of the sky by using rhe figure 500,000
          -rhe num ber of men who probably ga thered the birds-and mu lrip lying it by the
          smallest amount of birds bagged by anyone duri ng the time the quails passed over the
          camps. The smallest am ount was what ten burros could carry!
              The taste of roasted, succulent quail flesh was a welcome treat ro the Israelites.
          But perhaps it wasn' t quite as wonderfu l as ma ny had expected. When one builds up
          a lustful, consuming desire for something, ir of ten rum s our to be more desirable in
          one's imagination than it does as a reality.
               Thus it was with so many of the lustful ones of Israel and their quails. Those
          who had been so birrer, unr easonable and anxious in demanding meat were the very
          ones who starred gorging themselves even before the birds were ready to eat. They
          seized the half-raw, smoking fowl in both hands and set abour devouring them as

                   starving vulrures would attack a newly discovered carcass. There were even a few
                   who were craving mear so strongly-and these were mostly among the srrangers
                   wirh Israel-that they rore the feathers off the birds as soon as they were caught
                   and proceeded ro consume them raw.
                         As for God's promise ro supply the Israelites with meat for a whole month , the
                   Creator more than kept His word, Th e huge amounts of birds bagged by the Israelites,
                   if properly preserved, would have lasted much more than a month-even if eaten
                   greedily by the more ravenous Israelites,

                        But something began ro happen ro cause the Israelires ro suddenly lose interest
                   in quails,
                        People began ro ger sick,
                         From all points in the camps came the increasing moans and groans of those
                   who had gorged themselves. Th eir digestive sysrems, used ro the mild manna month
                   after month, were heavily over-taxed by the great amounts of half-chewed flesh that
                   had been swallowed hour after hour.
