Numbers ch 11:

(retrieved from:, date 21 Oct, 2021/ 5782)

Israel noted as being “professional complainers” is both embarrassing and sad. 

 This makes me wonder how could there have been such a disgusting lack of appreciation from the Nation to the GOD who rescued them just two years earlier?

I guess somethings we just or I just wont ever understand.

Moving on What is the difference between… sin, sinning, and sinful?

past…. sin

present….. living in …sinning

future…. full of sin … sinful

I believe this another reason why the Nation of Israel could never over come their past….

They were comfortable in a slave mind set.

They salve mind set be came a part of their identity.

In that slave identity … they found more worth and value.

GOD set them free, but they long to be slaves. 

now they became willful slaves to transgression and sin and later…rebellion

Next, the Nation of Israel attacked GOD’s Prophet.

I believe this is when GOD had enough.

HOW does GOD treasure HIS Anointed?

Most Relevant Verses regarding GOD’s Anointed. Meaning GOD; HIMSELF placing HIS Glorious Spirit into someone HE has chosen and decided to reside in.

I believe when GOD chooses to reside in HIS ELITE or ELECT; GOD feels what HIS Servant feels 10x’s more than the servant. I believe this is why GOD for lack of a better word tolerates ISRAEL and others being wicked or sinning or complaining, but once the Nation of Israel complains and turns their anger towards Mose and Aaron and they into turn take their Grievance to GOD….. this is when GOD’s anger it lit strong.

I found this article that list many Bible verse relating this thought.

1 John 2:27
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

1 John 2:20
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.

So it will be in that day, that his burden will be removed from your shoulders and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be broken because of fatness.

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.

And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,

James 5:14
Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;

Matthew 6:17
But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face

11:1When the people became murmurers, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it, therefore his wrath was kindled, and the fire of the Lord burnt among them, and consumed the vtmost parte of the hoste.

Now reading the Bible verse with the definitions in mind…one might read as:

11:1When the people(who GOD set free with an out stretched righteous, protective, and gloriously loving arm) became ( choose to enter into a perpetual state of will full complain and resentment day and night against GOD) murmurers (especially the men which then transferred tot he women spoke hatred against GOD), it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it, therefore his wrath was kindled, and the fire of the Lord burnt among them, and consumed the vtmost parte of the hoste (GOD sent HIS Righteous wrath to their very spirit with in them that the Nation of Israel allowed to take over their body).murmurs= evil spiritNow that we have more of an understand we might understand a little better the grave insult this Generation Of the Nation of Israel committed against GOD.

“therefore his wrath was kindled, and the fire of the Lord burnt among them, “

Many would know this is a fear of the LORD experience.

What is a fear of the LORD experience?


11:2 thru 11:3Then the people cryed vnto Moses: and when Moses praied vnto the Lord, the fire was quenched.And he called the name of that place Taberah, because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.
11:4 thru 11:9And a nomber of people that was amog them, fell a lusting, and turned away, and the children of Israel also wept, and saide, Who shall giue vs flesh to eate? We remember the fish which we did eat in Egypt for nought, the cucumbers, and the pepons, and the leekes, and the onions, and the garleke.  But now our soule is dryed away, we can see nothing but this Man. (The Man also was as coriander seede, and his colour like the colour of bdelium.  The people went about and gathered it, and ground it in milles, or beat it in morters, and baked it in a cauldron, and made cakes of it, and the taste of it was like vnto the taste of fresh oyle.  And when the dewe fell downe vpon the hoste in the night, the Man fell with it)

his colour like the colour of bdelium? 

Why the use of the word his normally reserved for a man or male? Maybe because this is a Spiritual  or Heaven food. the bread of the Angels. I believe part of GOD’s offense is that the people of Israel rejected being fed Heavenly and Spiritual elevating anything… in cluding the bread of the Angels. What we eat has a huge impact on our Spiritual and eartly mind. I dont think the Nation of Israel caught this. GOD was giving HIS people the best of the best .. 

Eternal Foods of Heaven ……

along with HIS beautiful Love……

 and Glorious Presence. 

GOD was elevating the Nation of Israel inside with food and Spirit and out with HIS Presence and Laws…. but slave minded Nation of Israel could not get past their past.  Holding on to ones past and not appreciating that GOD has carried us through and made a way for us to endure…. can cost one their future….let this not be us. AMEN.

What is the color of bdelium?

11:10 thru 11:15Then Moses heard the people weepe throughout their families, euery man in the doore of his tent, and the wrath of the Lord was grieuously kindled: also Moses was grieued. And Moses saide vnto the Lord, Wherefore hast thou vexed thy seruant? and why haue I not found fauour in thy sight, seeing thou hast put the charge of al this people vpon mee? Haue I conceiued al this people? or haue I begotte them, that thou shouldest say vnto me, Cary them in thy bosome (as a nurse beareth the sucking childe) vnto the lande, for the which thou swarest vnto their fathers? Where should I haue flesh to giue vnto al this people? for they weepe vnto me, saying, Giue vs flesh that we may eate. I am not able to beare al this people alone, for it is too heauie for me. Therefore if thou deale thus with mee, I pray thee, if I haue founde fauour in thy sight, kill me, that I behold not my miserie.

Anyone else wondering why the Nation of Israel is so bitter? They had meat from daily offerings and so on to eat. Maybe they didn’t have certain fruits of veggies, but surly GOD would have provide upon request. Instead this generation just wanted to be bitter, hateful, and in a lacking slave mentality. I would have been grieved with them too. Then on top of that to read that the complaining began with the men of the house hold!!!! I can understand why GOD was angry. The men were supposed to be the leaders of the houses, but in stead the men were staying up all night complaining and planning hate or wicked deeds.

11:16 thru 11:17Then the Lord said vnto Moses, Gather vnto me seuetie men of ye Elders of Israel, whome thou knowest, that they are the Elders of the people, and gouernonrs ouer them, and bring them vnto the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and let them stand there with thee,  And I will come downe, and talke with thee there, and take of the Spirite, which is vpon thee, and put vpon them, and they shall beare the burthen of the people with thee: so thou shalt not beare it alone.

This is where in my opinion the failure began. The Elders of theTribes were not doing their jobs.

In Exodus ch 3, the Elders of the tribes had already be gathered and assigned task to assist Moses in the governing of the Tribes members down to the tenth persons.

And,  in Exodus ch 18, the Elders had been gather by Moses yet, again to help assist in the governing of the Tribes.

Again in Number ch 1-6 God HIMself, orders the Tribes to conduct a count of each member. Each member or each tribe is assigned a leader and given tasks.

SO through out GOD setting the Nation of Israel free, GOD has always expected HIS people to work and be productive.  I believe the issue arose when the Leaders of the Tribes, including the Elders failed in their duties.  

Apparently,  Nations with GOD as their King, yet having weak Elders…. leads to ruin.

Season 4 Playlist, Book of Numbers.

11:18 thru 11:23Furthermore thou shalt saye vnto the people, Bee sanctified against to morowe, and yee shall eate flesh: for you haue wept in the eares of the Lord, saying, Who shall giue vs flesh to eate? for we were better in Egypt: therefore the Lord will giue you flesh, and ye shall eate.  Ye shall not eat one day nor two daies, nor fiue daies, neither ten daies, nor twentie dayes, But a whole moneth, vntill it come out at your nostrels, and bee lothesome vnto you, because ye haue contemned the Lord, which is among you, and haue wept before him, saying, Why came we hither out of Egypt? And Moses saide, Six hundreth thousande footemen are there of the people, among whom I am: and thou saiest, I will giue them flesh, that they may eate a moneth long. Shall the sheepe and the beeues be slaine for them, to finde them? either shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them to suffice them?  And the Lord saide vnto Moses, Is the Lordes hand shortened? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to passe vnto thee, or no.
11:24So Moses went out, and told the people the wordes of the Lord, and gathered seuentie men of the Elders of the people, and set them round about the Tabernacle.

What does Ancient men mean?



11:25 thru 11:30Then the Lord came downe in a cloude, and spake vnto him, and tooke of the Spirit that was vpon him, and put it vpon the seuentie Ancient men: and when the Spirit rested vpon them, then they prophecied, and did not cease. But there remained two of the men in the hoste: the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad, and the Spirit rested vpon them, (for they were of them that were written, and went not out vnto the Tabernacle) and they prophecied in the hoste.  Then there ranne a yong man, and tolde Moses, and saide, Eldad and Medad doe prophesie in the hoste.  And Ioshua the sonne of Nun the seruant of Moses one of his yong men answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.  But Moses saide vnto him, Enuiest thou for my sake? yea, would God that all the Lordes people were Prophets, and that the Lord woulde put his Spirit vpon them.  And Moses returned into the hoste, he and the Elders of Israel.
11:31 thru 11:34Then there went foorth a winde from the Lord, and brought quailes from the Sea, and let them fall vpon the campe, a dayes iourney on this side, and a dayes iourney on the other side, round about the hoste, and they were about two cubites aboue the earth.  Then the people arose, al that day, and all the night, and all the next day, and gathered the quailes: he that gathered the least, gathered ten Homers full, and they spred them abroade for their vse round about the hoste.  While the flesh was yet betweene their teeth, before it was chewed, euen the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote the people with an exceeding great plague.  So the name of the place was called, Kibroth-hattaauah: for there they buried the people that fell a lusting.The Torah reads this verse as: 34He named that place Kivroth Hata’avah [Graves of Craving], for there they buried the people who craved.

I wonder what plague was sent by GOD?

Can you get sick from eating Quail?

Yes, you can get sick by eating quail that feed upon toxic plants. Although rich in nutrients, consumption of quail meat may lead to Coturnism. It is an illness that is characterized by muscle tenderness and rhabdomyolysis. This is a breakdown of damaged skeletal muscles with symptoms of weakness, vomiting, and irregular heartbeat.

Adverse effects of eating Quail.

Consuming the meat of quail that feeds upon poisonous food can lead to adverse effects. One in four persons who consume poisonous meat is affected by coturnism that is characterized by muscle soreness and may also lead to adverse kidney failure.

Moreover, if you are consuming quail meat in higher amounts you may experience kidney problems, Dermatomyositis, Alzheimer. Increase Ovomucoid protein, metabolic problems, low blood pressure and increased cholesterol levels.

3. Torah Spiritual Teaching Notes: 

Numbers ch 10: 

Link to e-versoin of Torah:

1The people were looking to complain, and it was evil in the ears of the Lord. The Lord heard and His anger flared, and a fire from the Lord burned among them, consuming the extremes of the camp.
2The people cried out to Moses; Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down.
3He named that place Tab’erah, for the fire of the Lord had burned among them there.
4But the multitude among them began to have strong cravings. Then even the children of Israel once again began to cry, and they said, “Who will feed us meat?
5We remember the fish that we ate in Egypt free of charge, the cucumbers, the watermelons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic.
6But now, our bodies are dried out, for there is nothing at all; we have nothing but manna to look at.”
7Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance was like the appearance of crystal.
8The people walked about and gathered it. Then they ground it in a mill or crushed it in a mortar, cooked it in a pot and made it into cakes. It had a taste like the taste of oil cake.
9When the dew descended on the camp at night, the manna would descend upon it.
10Moses heard the people weeping with their families, each one at the entrance to his tent. The Lord became very angry, and Moses considered it evil.
11Moses said to the Lord, “Why have You treated Your servant so badly? Why have I not found favor in Your eyes that You place the burden of this entire people upon me?
12Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that You say to me, ‘Carry them in your bosom as the nurse carries the suckling,’ to the Land You promised their forefathers?
13Where can I get meat to give all these people? For they are crying on me, saying, ‘Give us meat to eat.’
14Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me.
15If this is the way You treat me, please kill me if I have found favor in Your eyes, so that I not see my misfortune.”
16Then the Lord said to Moses, “Assemble for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the people’s elders and officers, and you shall take them to the Tent of Meeting, and they shall stand there with You.
17I will come down and speak with you there, and I will increase the spirit that is upon you and bestow it upon them. Then they will bear the burden of the people with you so that you need not bear it alone.
18And to the people, you shall say, ‘Prepare yourselves for tomorrow and you shall eat meat, because you have cried in the ears of the Lord saying, “Who will feed us meat, for we had it better in Egypt.” [Therefore,] the Lord will give you meat, and you shall eat.
19You shall eat it not one day, not two days, not five days, not ten days, and not twenty days.
20But even for a full month until it comes out your nose and nauseates you. Because you have despised the Lord Who is among you, and you cried before Him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”
21Moses said, “Six hundred thousand people on foot are the people in whose midst I am, and You say, ‘I will give them meat, and they will eat it for a full month’?
22If sheep and cattle were slaughtered for them, would it suffice for them? If all the fish of the sea were gathered for them, would it suffice for them?”
23Then the Lord said to Moses, “Is My power limited? Now you will see if My word comes true for you or not!”
24Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said, and he assembled seventy men of the elders of the people, and stood them around the Tent.
25The Lord descended in a cloud and spoke to him, and He increased some of the spirit that was on him and bestowed it on the seventy elders. And when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but they did not continue.
26Now two men remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested upon them. They were among those written, but they did not go out to the tent, but prophesied in the camp.
27The lad ran and told Moses, saying, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp!”
28Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ servant from his youth, answered and said, Moses, my master, imprison them!”
29Moses said to him, “Are you zealous for my sake? If only all the Lord’s people were prophets, that the Lord would bestow His spirit upon them!”
30Then Moses entered the camp; he and the elders of Israel.
31A wind went forth from the Lord and swept quails from the sea and spread them over the camp about one day’s journey this way and one day’s journey that way, around the camp, about two cubits above the ground.
32The people rose up all that day and all night and the next day and gathered the quails. [Even] the one who gathered the least collected ten heaps. They spread them around the camp in piles.
33The meat was still between their teeth; it was not yet finished, and the anger of the Lord flared against the people, and the Lord struck the people with a very mighty blow.
34He named that place Kivroth Hata’avah [Graves of Craving], for there they buried the people who craved.
35From Kivroth Hata’avah the people traveled to Hazeroth, and they stayed in Hazeroth.

Welcome the following is a brief review of this Bible Study. 1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 5 Bible Studies . 2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Season 5 portion of the website. 3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble, and post link in this BLOG. How we conduct Bible Studies here: We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out. (It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter. Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable.. Proverbs 25:2 -3) This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure. We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh. We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man. Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time. The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D. Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6 The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, Wealth, honor, and life. Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked; He who values his life will keep far from them. Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age. Ezekiel 18:20thru 22 The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone. Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live. Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live. May HaShem, Blessed be He continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life. O'Amein and O'Amein Let US Begin!!!!
