But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, besides this manna, before our eyes.
All Commentaries on Numbers 11:6 Go To Numbers 11
George Leo Haydock
Dry, like people quite worn out for want of food. (Psalm ci. 5, 12; Lamentations iv. 8.)
Nothing. An exaggeration. We are disgusted with this light food. (Calmet)
They wished not only for the taste, but also for the colour, of other meats. (Menochius)
How often do we imitate their folly, when we are disgusted with the bread of life! (Haydock)
