Psalms 106:15

_ _ but sent leanness — rather, “and sent,” that is, and thus, even in doing so, the punishment was inflicted at the very time their request was granted. So Psalms 78:30, “While their meat was yet in their mouths, the wrath of God came upon them.”

_ _ soul — the animal soul, which craves for food (Numbers 11:6; Psalms 107:18). This soul got its wish, and with it and in it its own punishment. The place was therefore called Kibroth-hattaavah, “the graves of lust” [Numbers 11:34], because there they buried the people who had lusted. Animal desires when gratified mostly give only a hungry craving for more (Jeremiah 2:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 106:15

Souls — Into their bodies. So their inordinate desire of pampering their bodies, was the occasion of destroying them.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 106:15

And he gave them their request; but sent (h) leanness into their soul.

(h) The abundance that God gave them did not profit, but made them pine away, because God cursed it.

he gave:

Psalms 78:29-31 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire; ... The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.
Numbers 11:31-34 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let [them] fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits [high] upon the face of the earth. ... And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.
Isaiah 10:16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
Isaiah 24:16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, [even] glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

but sent:
They despised the manna, calling it light or innutritive food. God gave them flesh as they desired, but no blessing accompanied it; and, in consequence, they did not fatten, but grew lean upon it; and many, surfeited by excess, died of disease. Instead of razon, "leanness," however, Bp. Lowth supposes we should read zeraon, "nausea or loathing," which appears to be supported by several ancient versions, and by
Numbers 11:20 [But] even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD which [is] among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?
, where this portion of the history of the Israelites is recorded, and where the word zara is used, and rendered, "it be loathsome."
