1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the
congregation of the children of Yisrael came unto the wilderness of Sin, which
[is] between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after
their departing out of the land of Egypt.
2 And the whole congregation of the children of Yisrael murmured against Mosheh and Aaron in the wilderness:
3 And the children of Yisrael said unto them, Would to El we had died by the hand of YAHUAH in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, [and] when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
4 Then said YAHUAH unto Mosheh, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare [that] which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.
6 And Mosheh and Aaron said unto all the children of Yisrael, At even, then ye shall know that YAHUAH hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:
7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of YAHUAH; for that he heareth your murmurings against YAHUAH: and what [are] we, that ye murmur against us?
8 And Mosheh said, [This shall be], when YAHUAH shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that YAHUAH heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what [are] we? your murmurings [are] not against us, but against YAHUAH.
9 And Mosheh spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Yisrael, Come near before YAHUAH: for he hath heard your murmurings.
10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Yisrael, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of YAHUAH appeared in the cloud.
11 And YAHUAH spake unto Mosheh, saying,
12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Yisrael: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I [am] YAHUAH your YAHUAH.
13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.
14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness [there lay] a small round thing, [as] small as the hoar frost on the ground.
15 And when the children of Yisrael saw [it], they said one to another, It [is] manna: for they wist not what it [was]. And Mosheh said unto them, This [is] the bread which YAHUAH hath given you to eat.
16 This [is] the thing which YAHUAH hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, [according to] the number of your persons; take ye every man for [them] which [are] in his tents.
17 And the children of Yisrael did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
18 And when they did mete [it] with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
19 And Mosheh said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Mosheh; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Mosheh was wroth with them.
21 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
22 And it came to pass, [that] on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one [man]: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Mosheh.
23 And he said unto them, This [is that] which YAHUAH hath said, Tomorrow [is] the rest of the holy sabbath unto YAHUAH: bake [that] which ye will bake [to day], and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Mosheh bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
25 And Mosheh said, Eat that to day; for to day [is] a sabbath unto YAHUAH: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, [which is] the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
27 And it came to pass, [that] there went out [some] of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
28 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
29 See, for that YAHUAH hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
31 And the house of Yisrael called the name thereof Manna: and it [was] like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it [was] like wafers [made] with honey.
32 And Mosheh said, This [is] the thing which YAHUAH commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
33 And Mosheh said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before YAHUAH, to be kept for your generations.
34 As YAHUAH commanded Mosheh, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.
35 And the children of Yisrael did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
36 Now an omer [is] the tenth [part] of an ephah.
