Numbers 11


1  And when the people5971 complained,596 it displeased7451 241 the LORD:3068 and the LORD3068 heard8085 it; and his anger639 was kindled;2734 and the fire784 of the LORD3068 burnt1197 among them, and consumed398 them that were in the uttermost parts7097 of the camp.4264

2  And the people5971 cried6817 unto413 Moses;4872 and when Moses4872 prayed6419 unto413 the LORD,3068 the fire784 was quenched.8257

3  And he called7121 the name8034 of the place4725 Taberah:8404 because3588 the fire784 of the LORD3068 burnt1197 among them.

4  And the mixed multitude628 that834 was among7130 them fell a lusting:183 8378 and the children1121 of Israel3478 also1571 wept1058 again,7725 and said,559 Who4310 shall give us flesh1320 to eat?398

5  We remember2142 853 the fish,1710 which834 we did eat398 in Egypt4714 freely;2600 853 the cucumbers,7180 and the melons,20 and the leeks,2682 and the onions,1211 and the garlic:7762

6  But now6258 our soul5315 is dried away:3002 there is nothing369 at all,3605 beside1115 413 this manna,4478 before our eyes.5869

7  And the manna4478 was as coriander1407 seed,2233 and the color5869 thereof as the color5869 of bedellium.916

8  And the people5971 went about,7751 and gathered3950 it, and ground2912 it in mills,7347 or176 beat1743 it in a mortar,4085 and baked1310 it in pans,6517 and made6213 cakes5692 of it: and the taste2940 of it was1961 as the taste2940 of fresh3955 oil.8081

9  And when the dew2919 fell3381 upon5921 the camp4264 in the night,3915 the manna4478 fell3381 upon5921 it.

10  Then Moses4872 heard8085 853 the people5971 weep1058 throughout their families,4940 every man376 in the door6607 of his tent:168 and the anger639 of the LORD3068 was kindled2734 greatly;3966 Moses4872 also was displeased.5869 7451

11  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 the LORD,3068 Wherefore4100 hast thou afflicted7489 thy servant?5650 and wherefore4100 have I not3808 found4672 favor2580 in thy sight,5869 that thou layest7760 853 the burden4853 of all3605 this2088 people5971 upon5921 me?

12  Have I595 conceived2030 853 all3605 this2088 people?5971 have I595 begotten3205 them, that3588 thou shouldest say559 unto413 me, Carry5375 them in thy bosom,2436 as834 a nursing father539 beareth5375 853 the sucking child,3243 unto5921 the land127 which834 thou sworest7650 unto their fathers?1

13  Whence4480 370 should I have flesh1320 to give5414 unto all3605 this2088 people?5971 for3588 they weep1058 unto5921 me, saying,559 Give5414 us flesh,1320 that we may eat.398

14  I595 am not able3201 3808 to bear5375 853 all3605 this2088 people5971 alone,905 because3588 it is too heavy3515 for4480 me.

15  And if518 thou859 deal6213 thus3602 with me, kill2026 me, I pray thee,4994 out of hand,2026 if518 I have found4672 favor2580 in thy sight;5869 and let me not408 see7200 my wretchedness.7451

16  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Gather622 unto me seventy7657 men376 of the elders4480 2205 of Israel,3478 whom834 thou knowest3045 to be the elders2205 of the people,5971 and officers7860 over them; and bring3947 them unto413 the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 that they may stand3320 there8033 with5973 thee.

17  And I will come down3381 and talk1696 with5973 thee there:8033 and I will take680 of4480 the spirit7307 which834 is upon5921 thee, and will put7760 it upon5921 them; and they shall bear5375 the burden4853 of the people5971 with854 thee, that thou859 bear5375 it not3808 thyself alone.905

18  And say559 thou unto413 the people,5971 Sanctify yourselves6942 against tomorrow,4279 and ye shall eat398 flesh:1320 for3588 ye have wept1058 in the ears241 of the LORD,3068 saying,559 Who4310 shall give us flesh1320 to eat?398 for3588 it was well2895 with us in Egypt:4714 therefore the LORD3068 will give5414 you flesh,1320 and ye shall eat.398

19  Ye shall not3808 eat398 one259 day,3117 nor3808 two days,3117 nor3808 five2568 days,3117 neither3808 ten6235 days,3117 nor3808 twenty6242 days;3117

20  But even5704 a whole3117 month,2320 until5704 834 it come out3318 at your nostrils,4480 639 and it be1961 loathsome2214 unto you: because3282 that3588 ye have despised3988 853 the LORD3068 which834 is among7130 you, and have wept1058 before6440 him, saying,559 Why4100 2088 came we forth3318 out of Egypt?4480 4714

21  And Moses4872 said,559 The people,5971 among7130 whom834 I595 am, are six8337 hundred3967 thousand505 footmen;7273 and thou859 hast said,559 I will give5414 them flesh,1320 that they may eat398 a whole3117 month.2320

22  Shall the flocks6629 and the herds1241 be slain7819 for them, to suffice4672 them? or518 853 shall all3605 the fish1709 of the sea3220 be gathered together622 for them, to suffice4672 them?

23  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Is the LORD's3068 hand3027 waxed short?7114 thou shalt see7200 now6258 whether my word1697 shall come to pass7136 unto thee or518 not.3808

24  And Moses4872 went out,3318 and told1696 413 the people5971 853 the words1697 of the LORD,3068 and gathered622 the seventy7657 men376 of the elders4480 2205 of the people,5971 and set5975 them round about5439 the tabernacle.168

25  And the LORD3068 came down3381 in a cloud,6051 and spoke1696 unto413 him, and took680 of4480 the spirit7307 that834 was upon5921 him, and gave5414 it unto5921 the seventy7657 elders:376 2205 and it came to pass,1961 that, when the spirit7307 rested5117 upon5921 them, they prophesied,5012 and did not3808 cease.3254

26  But there remained7604 two8147 of the men376 in the camp,4264 the name8034 of the one259 was Eldad,419 and the name8034 of the other8145 Medad:4312 and the spirit7307 rested5117 upon5921 them; and they1992 were of them that were written,3789 but went not out3318 3808 unto the tabernacle:168 and they prophesied5012 in the camp.4264

27  And there ran7323 a young man,5288 and told5046 Moses,4872 and said,559 Eldad419 and Medad4312 do prophesy5012 in the camp.4264

28  And Joshua3091 the son1121 of Nun,5126 the servant8334 of Moses,4872 one of his young men,4480 979 answered6030 and said,559 My lord113 Moses,4872 forbid3607 them.

29  And Moses4872 said559 unto him, Enviest7065 thou859 for my sake? would God4310 5414 that all3605 the LORD's3068 people5971 were prophets,5030 and that3588 the LORD3068 would put5414 853 his spirit7307 upon5921 them!

30  And Moses4872 got622 him into413 the camp,4264 he1931 and the elders2205 of Israel.3478

31  And there went forth5265 a wind7307 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 and brought1468 quails7958 from4480 the sea,3220 and let them fall5203 by5921 the camp,4264 as it were a day's3117 journey1870 on this side,3541 and as it were a day's3117 journey1870 on the other side,3541 round about5439 the camp,4264 and as it were two cubits520 high upon5921 the face6440 of the earth.776

32  And the people5971 stood up6965 all3605 that1931 day,3117 and all3605 that night,3915 and all3605 the next4283 day,3117 and they gathered622 853 the quails:7958 he that gathered least4591 gathered622 ten6235 homers:2563 and they spread them all abroad7849 7849 for themselves round about5439 the camp.4264

33  And while the flesh1320 was yet5750 between996 their teeth,8127 ere2962 it was chewed,3772 the wrath639 of the LORD3068 was kindled2734 against the people,5971 and the LORD3068 smote5221 the people5971 with a very3966 great7227 plague.4347

34  And he called7121 853 the name8034 of that1931 place4725 Kibroth-hattaavah:6914 because3588 there8033 they buried6912 853 the people5971 that lusted.183

35  And the people5971 journeyed5265 from Kibroth-hattaavah4480 6914 unto Hazeroth;2698 and abode1961 at Hazeroth.2698


1 καὶ ἦν ὁ λαὸς γογγύζων πονηρὰ ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ ἤκουσεν κύριος καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ καὶ ἐξεκαύθη ἐν αὐτοῖς πῦρ παρὰ κυρίου καὶ κατέφαγεν μέρος τι τῆς παρεμβολῆς

2 καὶ ἐκέκραξεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ ηὔξατο Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον καὶ ἐκόπασεν τὸ πῦρ

3 καὶ ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου ἐμπυρισμός ὅτι ἐξεκαύθη ἐν αὐτοῖς πῦρ παρὰ κυρίου

4 καὶ ὁ ἐπίμικτος ὁ ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐπεθύμησαν ἐπιθυμίαν καὶ καθίσαντες ἔκλαιον καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπαν τίς ἡμᾶς ψωμιεῖ κρέα

5 ἐμνήσθημεν τοὺς ἰχθύας οὓς ἠσθίομεν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ δωρεάν καὶ τοὺς σικύας καὶ τοὺς πέπονας καὶ τὰ πράσα καὶ τὰ κρόμμυα καὶ τὰ σκόρδα

6 νυνὶ δὲ ἡ ψυχὴ ἡμῶν κατάξηρος οὐδὲν πλὴν εἰς τὸ μαννα οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ ἡμῶν

7 τὸ δὲ μαννα ὡσεὶ σπέρμα κορίου ἐστίν καὶ τὸ εἶδος αὐτοῦ εἶδος κρυστάλλου

8 καὶ διεπορεύετο ὁ λαὸς καὶ συνέλεγον καὶ ἤληθον αὐτὸ ἐν τῷ μύλῳ καὶ ἔτριβον ἐν τῇ θυίᾳ καὶ ἥψουν αὐτὸ ἐν τῇ χύτρᾳ καὶ ἐποίουν αὐτὸ ἐγκρυφίας καὶ ἦν ἡ ἡδονὴ αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ γεῦμα ἐγκρὶς ἐξ ἐλαίου

9 καὶ ὅταν κατέβη ἡ δρόσος ἐπὶ τὴν παρεμβολὴν νυκτός κατέβαινεν τὸ μαννα ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

10 καὶ ἤκουσεν Μωυσῆς κλαιόντων αὐτῶν κατὰ δήμους αὐτῶν ἕκαστον ἐπὶ τῆς θύρας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ κύριος σφόδρα καὶ ἔναντι Μωυσῆ ἦν πονηρόν

11 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς κύριον ἵνα τί ἐκάκωσας τὸν θεράποντά σου καὶ διὰ τί οὐχ εὕρηκα χάριν ἐναντίον σου ἐπιθεῖναι τὴν ὁρμὴν τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ

12 μὴ ἐγὼ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβον πάντα τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ἢ ἐγὼ ἔτεκον αὐτούς ὅτι λέγεις μοι λαβὲ αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν κόλπον σου ὡσεὶ ἄραι τιθηνὸς τὸν θηλάζοντα εἰς τὴν γῆν ἣν ὤμοσας τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν

13 πόθεν μοι κρέα δοῦναι παντὶ τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ ὅτι κλαίουσιν ἐπ᾽ ἐμοὶ λέγοντες δὸς ἡμῖν κρέα ἵνα φάγωμεν

14 οὐ δυνήσομαι ἐγὼ μόνος φέρειν τὸν λαὸν τοῦτον ὅτι βαρύτερόν μοί ἐστιν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο

15 εἰ δὲ οὕτως σὺ ποιεῖς μοι ἀπόκτεινόν με ἀναιρέσει εἰ εὕρηκα ἔλεος παρὰ σοί ἵνα μὴ ἴδω μου τὴν κάκωσιν

16 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν συνάγαγέ μοι ἑβδομήκοντα ἄνδρας ἀπὸ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων Ισραηλ οὓς αὐτὸς σὺ οἶδας ὅτι οὗτοί εἰσιν πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ γραμματεῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἄξεις αὐτοὺς πρὸς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ στήσονται ἐκεῖ μετὰ σοῦ

17 καὶ καταβήσομαι καὶ λαλήσω ἐκεῖ μετὰ σοῦ καὶ ἀφελῶ ἀπὸ τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ ἐπὶ σοὶ καὶ ἐπιθήσω ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς καὶ συναντιλήμψονται μετὰ σοῦ τὴν ὁρμὴν τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ οὐκ οἴσεις αὐτοὺς σὺ μόνος

18 καὶ τῷ λαῷ ἐρεῖς ἁγνίσασθε εἰς αὔριον καὶ φάγεσθε κρέα ὅτι ἐκλαύσατε ἔναντι κυρίου λέγοντες τίς ἡμᾶς ψωμιεῖ κρέα ὅτι καλὸν ἡμῖν ἐστιν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ δώσει κύριος ὑμῖν κρέα φαγεῖν καὶ φάγεσθε κρέα

19 οὐχ ἡμέραν μίαν φάγεσθε οὐδὲ δύο οὐδὲ πέντε ἡμέρας οὐδὲ δέκα ἡμέρας οὐδὲ εἴκοσι ἡμέρας

20 ἕως μηνὸς ἡμερῶν φάγεσθε ἕως ἂν ἐξέλθῃ ἐκ τῶν μυκτήρων ὑμῶν καὶ ἔσται ὑμῖν εἰς χολέραν ὅτι ἠπειθήσατε κυρίῳ ὅς ἐστιν ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ ἐκλαύσατε ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ λέγοντες ἵνα τί ἡμῖν ἐξελθεῖν ἐξ Αἰγύπτου

21 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς ἑξακόσιαι χιλιάδες πεζῶν ὁ λαός ἐν οἷς εἰμι ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ σὺ εἶπας κρέα δώσω αὐτοῖς φαγεῖν καὶ φάγονται μῆνα ἡμερῶν

22 μὴ πρόβατα καὶ βόες σφαγήσονται αὐτοῖς καὶ ἀρκέσει αὐτοῖς ἢ πᾶν τὸ ὄψος τῆς θαλάσσης συναχθήσεται αὐτοῖς καὶ ἀρκέσει αὐτοῖς

23 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν μὴ χεὶρ κυρίου οὐκ ἐξαρκέσει ἤδη γνώσει εἰ ἐπικαταλήμψεταί σε ὁ λόγος μου ἢ οὔ

24 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Μωυσῆς καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς τὸν λαὸν τὰ ῥήματα κυρίου καὶ συνήγαγεν ἑβδομήκοντα ἄνδρας ἀπὸ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς κύκλῳ τῆς σκηνῆς

25 καὶ κατέβη κύριος ἐν νεφέλῃ καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ παρείλατο ἀπὸ τοῦ πνεύματος τοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ καὶ ἐπέθηκεν ἐπὶ τοὺς ἑβδομήκοντα ἄνδρας τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους ὡς δὲ ἐπανεπαύσατο τὸ πνεῦμα ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς καὶ ἐπροφήτευσαν καὶ οὐκέτι προσέθεντο

26 καὶ κατελείφθησαν δύο ἄνδρες ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ ὄνομα τῷ ἑνὶ Ελδαδ καὶ ὄνομα τῷ δευτέρῳ Μωδαδ καὶ ἐπανεπαύσατο ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τὸ πνεῦμα καὶ οὗτοι ἦσαν τῶν καταγεγραμμένων καὶ οὐκ ἦλθον πρὸς τὴν σκηνήν καὶ ἐπροφήτευσαν ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ

27 καὶ προσδραμὼν ὁ νεανίσκος ἀπήγγειλεν Μωυσῇ καὶ εἶπεν λέγων Ελδαδ καὶ Μωδαδ προφητεύουσιν ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ

28 καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς Ἰησοῦς ὁ τοῦ Ναυη ὁ παρεστηκὼς Μωυσῇ ὁ ἐκελεκτὸς εἶπεν κύριε Μωυσῆ κώλυσον αὐτούς

29 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Μωυσῆς μὴ ζηλοῖς σύ μοι καὶ τίς δῴη πάντα τὸν λαὸν κυρίου προφήτας ὅταν δῷ κύριος τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς

30 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Μωυσῆς εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι Ισραηλ

31 καὶ πνεῦμα ἐξῆλθεν παρὰ κυρίου καὶ ἐξεπέρασεν ὀρτυγομήτραν ἀπὸ τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐπέβαλεν ἐπὶ τὴν παρεμβολὴν ὁδὸν ἡμέρας ἐντεῦθεν καὶ ὁδὸν ἡμέρας ἐντεῦθεν κύκλῳ τῆς παρεμβολῆς ὡσεὶ δίπηχυ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς

32 καὶ ἀναστὰς ὁ λαὸς ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν καὶ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα καὶ ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν τὴν ἐπαύριον καὶ συνήγαγον τὴν ὀρτυγομήτραν ὁ τὸ ὀλίγον συνήγαγεν δέκα κόρους καὶ ἔψυξαν ἑαυτοῖς ψυγμοὺς κύκλῳ τῆς παρεμβολῆς

33 τὰ κρέα ἔτι ἦν ἐν τοῖς ὀδοῦσιν αὐτῶν πρὶν ἢ ἐκλείπειν καὶ κύριος ἐθυμώθη εἰς τὸν λαόν καὶ ἐπάταξεν κύριος τὸν λαὸν πληγὴν μεγάλην σφόδρα

34 καὶ ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου μνήματα τῆς ἐπιθυμίας ὅτι ἐκεῖ ἔθαψαν τὸν λαὸν τὸν ἐπιθυμητήν

35 ἀπὸ μνημάτων ἐπιθυμίας ἐξῆρεν ὁ λαὸς εἰς Ασηρωθ καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ λαὸς ἐν Ασηρωθ

1 Interea ortum est murmur populi, quasi dolentium pro labore, contra Dominum. Quod cum audisset Dominus, iratus est. Et accensus in eos ignis Domini, devoravit extremam castrorum partem.

2 Cumque clamasset populus ad Moysen, oravit Moyses ad Dominum, et absorptus est ignis.

3 Vocavitque nomen illius, Incensio: eo quod incensus fuisset contra eos ignis Domini.

4 Vulgus quippe promiscuum, quod ascenderat cum eis, flagravit desiderio, sedens et flens, junctis sibi pariter filiis Israël, et ait: Quis dabit nobis ad vescendum carnes?

5 recordamur piscium quos comedebamus in Ægypto gratis: in mentem nobis veniunt cucumeres, et pepones, porrique, et cæpe, et allia.

6 Anima nostra arida est: nihil aliud respiciunt oculi nostri nisi man.

7 Erat autem man quasi semen coriandri, coloris bdellii.

8 Circuibatque populus, et colligens illud, frangebat mola, sive terebat in mortario, coquens in olla, et faciens ex eo tortulas saporis quasi panis oleati.

9 Cumque descenderet nocte super castra ros, descendebat pariter et man.

10 Audivit ergo Moyses flentem populum per familias, singulos per ostia tentorii sui. Iratusque est furor Domini valde: sed et Moysi intoleranda res visa est,

11 et ait ad Dominum: Cur afflixisti servum tuum? quare non invenio gratiam coram te? et cur imposuisti pondus universi populi hujus super me?

12 Numquid ego concepi omnem hanc multitudinem, vel genui eam, ut dicas mihi: Porta eos in sinu tuo sicut portare solet nutrix infantulum, et defer in terram, pro qua jurasti patribus eorum?

13 Unde mihi carnes ut dem tantæ multitudini? flent contra me, dicentes: Da nobis carnes ut comedamus.

14 Non possum solus sustinere omnem hunc populum, quia gravis est mihi.

15 Sin aliter tibi videtur, obsecro ut interficias me, et inveniam gratiam in oculis tuis, ne tantis afficiar malis.

16 Et dixit Dominus ad Moysen: Congrega mihi septuaginta viros de senibus Israël, quos tu nosti quod senes populi sint ac magistri: et duces eos ad ostium tabernaculi fœderis, faciesque ibi stare tecum,

17 ut descendam et loquar tibi: et auferam de spiritu tuo, tradamque eis, ut sustentent tecum onus populi, et non tu solus graveris.

18 Populo quoque dices: Sanctificamini (cras comedetis carnes: ego enim audivi vos dicere: Quis dabit nobis escas carnium? bene nobis erat in Ægypto), ut det vobis Dominus carnes, et comedatis:

19 non uno die, nec duobus, vel quinque aut decem, nec viginti quidem,

20 sed usque ad mensem dierum, donec exeat per nares vestras, et vertatur in nauseam, eo quod repuleritis Dominum, qui in medio vestri est, et fleveritis coram eo, dicentes: Quare egressi sumus ex Ægypto?

21 Et ait Moyses: Sexcenta millia peditum hujus populi sunt: et tu dicis: Dabo eis esum carnium mense integro?

22 numquid ovium et boum multitudo cædetur, ut possit sufficere ad cibum? vel omnes pisces maris in unum congregabuntur, ut eos satient?

23 Cui respondit Dominus: Numquid manus Domini invalida est? jam nunc videbis utrum meus sermo opere compleatur.

24 Venit igitur Moyses, et narravit populo verba Domini, congregans septuaginta viros de senibus Israël, quos stare fecit circa tabernaculum.

25 Descenditque Dominus per nubem, et locutus est ad eum, auferens de spiritu qui erat in Moyse, et dans septuaginta viris. Cumque requievisset in eis spiritus, prophetaverunt, nec ultra cessaverunt.

26 Remanserat autem in castris duo viri, quorum unus vocabatur Eldad, et alter Medad, super quos requievit spiritus. Nam et ipsi descripti fuerant, et non exierant ad tabernaculum.

27 Cumque prophetarent in castris, cucurrit puer, et nuntiavit Moysi, dicens: Eldad et Medad prophetant in castris.

28 Statim Josue filius Nun, minister Moysi, et electus e pluribus, ait: Domine mi Moyses, prohibe eos.

29 At ille: Quid, inquit æmularis pro me? quis tribuat ut omnis populus prophetet, et det eis Dominus spiritum suum?

30 Reversusque est Moyses, et majores natu Israël in castra.

31 Ventus autem egrediens a Domino, arreptans trans mare coturnices detulit, et demisit in castra itinere quantum uno die confici potest, ex omni parte castrorum per circuitum, volabantque in aëre duobus cubitis altitudine super terram.

32 Surgens ergo populus toto die illo, et nocte, ac die altero, congregavit coturnicum: qui parum, decem coros: et siccaverunt eas per gyrum castrorum.

33 Adhuc carnes erant in dentibus eorum, nec defecerat hujuscemodi cibus: et ecce furor Domini concitatus in populum, percussit eum plaga magna nimis.

34 Vocatusque est ille locus, Sepulchra concupiscentiæ: ibi enim sepelierunt populum qui desideraverat. Egressi autem de Sepulchris concupiscentiæ, venerunt in Haseroth, et manserunt ibi.
