31 Now the Lord sent a wind that brought quail from the sea and let them fall all around the camp. For miles in every direction there were quail flying about three feet above the ground. 1 32 So the people went out and caught quail all that day and throughout the night and all the next day, too. No one gathered less than fifty bushels 2 ! They spread the quail all around the camp to dry. 33 But while they were gorging themselves on the meat - while it was still in their mouths - the anger of the Lord blazed against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34 So that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah (which means “graves of gluttony”) because there they buried the people who had craved meat from Egypt. 35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the Israelites traveled to Hazeroth, where they stayed for some time.
