New Defender's Study Bible Notes

11:3 fire of the Lord. As at Sodom (Genesis 19:24), this fire of the Lord could have been entirely miraculous, or possibly an ignition of gases escaping from the tectonically and seismically active Sinai desert. In either case, it was so timed and used as to convey clearly God’s intense displeasure with this repeated complaining. Taberah means “burning.”
