The entire Israelite assembly set out from Elim and arrived in the wilderness of Sin between Elim and Sinai on the fifteenth day of the second month after leaving Egypt.

The whole Israelite community murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness,

If only we had died early in the land of Egypt, under the hand of the Lord, when we sat by the meat pot and ate to our fill. You brought us out into this wilderness to make all the congregation starve to death.

The Lord said to Moses, “I will bring grain from heaven to you.”. The people can go out and collect their daily share, so that I can test whether they follow my laws.

On the sixth day, they need to prepare what they have received, which is twice as much as what they receive every day.

Moses and Aaron said to all Israel, “In the evening, know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt.”.

In the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord, for the Lord has heard your grievances against him. What are we, that you should complain to us?

Moses also said, The Lord will give you meat to eat at night, and food to be full in the morning, because he has heard your grievances against the Lord. What are we? Your grievances are not directed towards us, but towards the Lord.

Moses said to Aaron, “Tell all the Israelites, ‘Come near to the Lord, because he has heard your grievances.'”.

As Aaron was speaking to the entire Israelite community, they looked into the wilderness and saw the glory of the Lord appearing in the clouds.

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

I have heard the grievances of the Israelites. Tell them, ‘At dusk, you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be full with food, and you shall know that I am the Lord your God.’.

At night, quails flew over and covered the camp. In the morning, there was dew on the ground around the camp.

After the dew rose, unexpectedly, there were small round objects on the wild ground that looked like white frost.

When the Israelites saw it and did not know what it was, they asked each other, “What is this?”? Moses said to them, This is the food that the Lord has given you to eat.

This is what the Lord has commanded: You shall gather the people in the tent according to their appetite, and each one shall take one omer.

The Israelites did this, some received more and some received less.

When measuring with an omel, there was no surplus for those who had harvested more, and no shortage for those who had harvested less. Each person collected according to their own appetite.

Moses said to them, ‘No one is allowed to keep the harvest until morning.’.

However, they did not listen to Moses, and some of them were kept until morning, causing worms and a foul odor. Moses was angry with them.

They charge according to each person’s appetite every morning, and when the sun heats up, they digest it.

On the sixth day, they received double the amount of food, two omels per person. The leaders of the congregation came and told Moses,

Moses said to them, This is what the Lord says: Tomorrow is a holy Sabbath, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Roast what you want, cook what you want, and leave the rest until morning.

They kept it until morning as Moses instructed, and it didn’t smell bad, and there were no insects inside.

Moses said, Eat this today, for it is a Sabbath to the Lord, and you will not find it in the fields.

Six days can be collected, but the seventh day is the Sabbath, and that day will be gone.

On the seventh day, some of the people went out to collect and couldn’t find anything.

The Lord said to Moses, “How long will you refuse to keep my commandments and laws?”?

You see, since the Lord has given you the Sabbath, he has given you two days of food on the sixth day. On the seventh day, everyone is to stay in their own place and no one is allowed to go out.

So the people rested on the seventh day.

This food, called manna by the Israelites, looks like coriander seeds, has a white color, and tastes like thin cakes mixed with honey.

Moses said, This is what the Lord has commanded: to keep a full omel of manna for generations to come, so that future generations may see the food that I brought you out of the land of Egypt that day and gave you to eat in the wilderness.

Moses said to Aaron, Take a jar and fill it with an omel of manna, and keep it before the Lord for generations to come.

As the Lord commanded Moses, Aaron did, and put the manna in front of the Testament to be kept.

The Israelites ate manna for a total of forty years until they entered the inhabited land, which is the border of Canaan.

(Omer is one tenth of an ephah).
