CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
11:1 Complained - Or, murmured, the occasion whereof seems to be their last three days journey in a vast howling wilderness, and thereupon the remembrance of their long abode in the wilderness, and the fear of many other tedious journeys, whereby they were like to be long delayed from coming to the land of milk and honey, which they thirsted after.

Their voices rose in a great chorus of protest against Moses and Aaron. "If only we had died in Egypt, or even here in the wilderness!" they complained.
not one of these people will ever enter that land. They have all seen my glorious presence and the miraculous signs I performed both in Egypt and in the wilderness, but again and again they have tested me by refusing to listen to my voice.
"How long must I put up with this wicked community and its complaints about me? Yes, I have heard the complaints the Israelites are making against me.
Now tell them this: 'As surely as I live, declares the LORD, I will do to you the very things I heard you say.
The LORD is the one you and your followers are really revolting against! For who is Aaron that you are complaining about him?"
Then fire blazed forth from the LORD and burned up the 250 men who were offering incense.
