Numbers 11:33

And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, before it was consumed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD struck the people with a very great plague.
Read Chapter 11

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
To some, indeed, who lack patience, the Lord God in his wrath grants them what they ask, just as in his mercy, on the other hand, he refused it to his apostle. We read what and how the Israelites asked and received, but when their lust had been satisfied, their lack of patience was severely punished.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Plague of fire, ver. 3, Psalm lxxvii. 21. (Cornelius a Lap ide) Failed, after the month was expired. (Menochius) They had been accustomed to live upon manna, which was a light food, during the space of a year; and now eating greedily of this flesh, their stomachs were overcharged, and they died of an indigestion. (Calmet) The Rabbins say, God punished their gluttony by death, and obliged the rest of the Hebrews to abstain from all flesh, except from that of the peace-offerings, till they entered the promised land. (Selden, Syn. 2, 4.)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
