Kibroth Hattaavah

KIBROTH HATTAAVAH (kĭb'rŏth hă-tā'a-va, the graves of lust or greed). The first encampment of the Israelites after they left the wilderness of Sinai. Here they longed for meat and gorged themselves on the quails God sent, dying of the resulting sickness. This explains the name (Num.11.34-Num.11.35; Num.33.16-Num.33.17; Deut.9.22).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

kib-roth-ha-ta’-a-va, kib-roth (qibhroth ha-ta’awah "the graves of greed"): A desert camp of the Israelites, one day’s journey from the wilderness of Sinai. There the people lusted for flesh to eat, and, a great number of quails being sent, a plague resulted; hence, the name (Nu 11:34; 33:16; De 9:22).
