God gave them flesh as they desired, but no blessing accompanied it; and, in consequence, they did not fatten, but grew lean upon it; and many surfeited by excess, died of disease. Instead of razon, leanness, however, Bp. Lowth supposes we should read zeraon, nausea or loathing, which appears to be supported by several ancient versions, and by Nu.
11:20, where this portion of the history of the Israelites is recorded, and where the word zara is used, and rendered, it be loathsome.
