  • To murmur is to make a low or indistinct sound or speech to express displeasure.
  • To murmur is also to complain or protest, to grumble, to show discontent against something or someone.
  • There was discrimination among the members of the early church.
  • There was preferential and special treatment, to a select group of people, at the expense of denying others their rightful share and privileges.
  • The unfair distribution of provisions nearly marred the unity of the church.
  • The Grecian Jews; Jews who were born aside Jerusalem and Palestine, especially their widows, were treated differently.
