Numbers 11:31-34
And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth…

Isaiah 10:16

but sent.









(15) Leanness.--The LXX., Vulg., and Syriac read "satiety." As Mr. Burgess points out, by accepting this reading, and giving nephesh its very usual signification of "lust" (comp. Psalm 78:18, where also the word rendered "request" occurs) we get two exact synthetical clauses:--

"And he gave them their request,

And sent satiety for their lust."

Verse 15. - And he gave them their request. By sending the quails (Numbers 11:31, 32). But sent leanness into their soul. By "leanness" is meant dissatisfaction or disgust. After eating freely of the quails for a full month, the food became "loathsome" to them (Numbers 11:20). Whether it actually produced the pestilence which followed (Numbers 11:33). or whether that was a separate and distinct affliction, it is impossible to determine (compare, on the whole subject, Psalm 78:18-31, and the comment ad loc.).
