Test Your Bible Knowledge: Question Nine

November 11, 2021

What bird did God send to feed the Israelites in the wilderness?

Yes! As we see in Exodus 16:13: “So it was that quail came up at evening and covered the camp, and in the morning the dew lay all around the camp.”

The NKJV Study Bible gives a little more insight into this event:

“God provided meat through a natural event, the migration of quails through the region. It was still God’s benevolent provision; the quails came at just the right time and in large numbers. On a later occasion, the gift of quails would come with judgment (see Numbers 11:31-35).

God supplied the heavenly food so that the Israelites would know beyond a doubt that God was with them and was providing for them.”
