What exactly, was their complaint?


Rashi (in Devarim, 1:1): They complained that, if they were destined to die, then it would have been preferable to die during the three days of darkness (together with the four fifths who died then), when they would at least have merited a decent burial, rather than to die in the desert, where their corpses would lie, expos ed to the heat by day and the cold by night.


Seforno: They complained that even if Par'oh and his army would not attack them, now that they were camped behind them they were cut off from all sources of sustenance, and were destined to die in the desert - 'of hunger, thirst, nakedness and for want of all basic needs'.
