The People Rebel

14 Then all the congregation raised a loud cry, and the people iwept that night. And all the people of Israel jgrumbled against Moses and Aaron. The whole congregation said to them, Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! Or kwould that we had died in this wilderness! Why is the Lord bringing us into this land, to fall by the sword? lOur wives and our little ones will become a prey. Would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt? And they said to one another, mLet us choose a leader and ngo back to Egypt.
