John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 11:20

At your nostrils — Which meat violently vomited up frequently doth. Thus God destroys them by granting their desires, and turns even their blessings into curses. Ye have despised the Lord — You have lightly esteemed his bounty and manifold blessings, you have slighted and distrusted his promises and providence after so long and large experience of it. Who is among you — Who is present and resident with you to observe all your carriage, and to punish your offences. This is added as a great aggravation of the crime, to sin in the presence of the judge. Why came we forth out of Egypt? — Why did God do us such an injury? Why did we so foolishly obey him in coming forth?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(m) Or, cast him off, because you refused manna, which he appointed as most suitable for you.

(n) Who leads and governs you.
