Kibroth-Hattaavah
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
The first place the Israelites camped after leaving the wilderness of Sinai (Num 33:16–17). After the Israelites complained about the lack of meat (Num 11:4–6), God caused a flock of quail to fall here (Num 11:31–35). While they were eating, the anger of the Lord caused a plague to spread and many Israelites died and were buried here (Deut 9:22), giving the place its name: “the graves of longing.”
