Then [Israel] believed His words [trusting in, relying on them]; they sang His praise.
But they hastily forgot His works; they did not [earnestly] wait for His plans [to develop] regarding them,
But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness and tempted and tried to restrain God [with their insistent desires] in the desert. [Num. 11:4.]
And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their souls and [thinned their numbers by] disease and death. [Ps. 78:29-31.]
