A camping place of the Children of Israel in the wilderness. It was given this name because in this place the people were buried who had died as a result of lusting after flesh to eat (Num. 11:34).

Meta. The result of intense, unrestrained, willful, sense desire. When man gives way completely to the appetites and desires of the flesh, he soon brings about a breaking up of his consciousness, known as death.
