Numbers 11:3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.
Deuteronomy 9:22 And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibroth-hattaavah, ye provoked the LORD to wrath.
// There’s only one place named Taberah in the Bible. It’s where Israel camped and decided to complain about all their adversities (Numbers 11:3, Deuteronomy 9:22). When YHWH heard these complaints, His anger was kindled and so was the camp. As the outskirts of the camp sizzled, Israel cried out to Moses and Moses beseeched the Lord to kill the fire. This happened, and the place was called Taberah, but the people kept complaining until Moses broke down and began to complain as well.
Then the Lord told Moses to gather seventy men and approach Him in the tabernacle, where He famously told Moses that He would send quail for the Israelites to eat, so much even that it would come out of their noses. And to top it off, He also sent a plague of untold characteristics, which impelled Israel to call that place Kibroth-hattaavah (Numbers 11:34). // — http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Taberah.html#.V1LGRFemu9p
Taberah seems to be something like a nuclear plasma, which induces radiation sickness. The Ancient Aliens nonsense asserts that this is because the Israelites were mistaking an alien ET spaceship for God, but I think the Bible is right and we just don’t understand much about how God reveals Himself.
// After the first round of signs and symptoms, a person with radiation sickness may have a brief period with no apparent illness, followed by the onset of new, more-serious symptoms. // —http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/radiation-sickness/basics/definition/con-20022901
Kibroth-hattaavah means “graves of gluttony,” according to biblehub.com.
