Kibroth-Hattaavah

Additional Links
(kihb' rahth-hat tay' uh vuh) Place name meaning, “graves of craving, lust, gluttony.” The first stopping place of the Israelites after they left Sinai (Numbers 33:16 ). The Israelites craved meat, which the Lord gave them (Numbers 11:31 ); but because they overindulged, an epidemic broke out, and many Israelites died. The dead were buried there, giving the place its name (Numbers 11:34; Deuteronomy 9:22; Psalm 78:30-31 ).
