Critics contend this miracle of the quail, sent in response to the complaint of the people's desire for flesh to eat (Numbers 11:4), is physically absurd. The picture, however, is not what it seems at first: quail stacked three feet high for miles all around. The language permits the more understandable rendering that the quail were easily accessible, flying two cubits above the ground. This was the second time God had providentially directed quail to the camp in great numbers (Exodus 16:13).
