    When God provides for us we should not murmur and be discontented. He knows our needs and we must learn to trust Him in all things.

    Verse 1~The constant complaining of the people showed a lack of faith on their part. They witnessed all that Jehovah God had done for them and for them to complain and show doubts was displeasing to God.
  • Ersatzangel
    Yes that comment does sound strange. When I read the surrounding verses it seems Moses was frustrated. God provided manna and the people complained that the food was better in Egypt - where they were slaves! Numbers 11:5. In Numbers 11:11-15 Moses vents his frustration. Numbers 11:17 God provides him help. Moses felt burdened like a nursing Mother for these people. He was crying to God for help.

    In Numbers 11:12- A nursing father beareth the sucking child? Fathers cannot nurse or bear a child!!! this verse sounds odd to me.
  • Philip
    God hates peoples nagging nor complaining,,, he want us to be thankful in all manners
