People Who Found Fault with God
long, long time ago there lived a people who were called the Israelites.
They had been treated cruelly for many years by a wicked king. God saw how
unhappy they were, and he pitied them. He sent a brave man named Moses to
lead them away to a much better country. God was with Moses and he was
able to save the people from the wicked king.
road to that country led through a desert land where there was no food or
water. When the people grew thirsty, God sent them water to drink. And
when they had eaten all the lunch in their baskets, God sent bread to them
from heaven each day.
after a while the Israelites grew tired of the food God was giving them to
eat. They wanted something else. They said, "We wish we had stayed
back in the wicked king's country. There we could eat meat, and here we
have none." So they complained.
God heard them finding fault about the food he was giving them, and he was not pleased. But he said, "I will give them meat." So he caused a strong wind to blow many birds, called quails, across the desert. The Israelites saw these birds and they hurried out to gather some for food. They ate of these quails for many days. In many other ways God cared for these people while they journeyed to the new land.
