English term or phrase:whined - dined
The Bible's greatest illustration of fearful unbelief and fearless faith lasted for forty years. It was like watching a forty-act drama on the stage, depicting the total bankruptcy of faith. We still see them in our mind's eye - those camping tribes of Israel. Many a time their wanderings took them close to the border of the Promised Land. It wasn't that they didn't believe they could go over. They knew it was their right, for God had given the land to them. They were thoroughly convinced. Their faith that far was perfect. But their faith had a fatal flaw - the worm of fear was at the heart of it. Their faith was useless while they feared. So most of them never got there. They panicked. They murmured about their lot but hadn't enough faith to change it. ***They whined when they could have dined***.
