Looking in the OT


Where does it say in the Old Testament something like “…and God gave them up to their own desire to eat so the men would eat and eat and never feel full…”

I think it is somewhere in the Exodus story. I can’t find it through search engine. Thanks.


Must have happened whilst the guys left Egypt and ate Manna from heaven in the desert.
It's some kind of bread that contains everything the people need yet it doesn't make you feel "full".


Maybe Numbers 11, when God gave the Israelites quail to eat?

And say to the people, `Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat; for you have wept in the hearing of the LORD, saying, “Who will give us meat to eat? For it was well with us in Egypt.” Therefore the LORD will give you meat, and you shall eat. You shall not eat one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the LORD who is among you, and have wept before him, saying, “Why did we come forth out of Egypt?”’" (Numbers 11:18-20)
