Exodus 16:15-35

Rotherham(i) 15 And when the sons of Israel saw it they said one to another—What is that? For they knew not what "that" was. Then said Moses unto them, "That" is the bread which Yahweh hath given you to eat. 16 This, is the thing which Yahweh hath commanded, Gather ye thereof, each man what he needeth for eating,—an omer a head, by the number of your souls, each man—for them who are in his tent, shall ye take. 17 And the sons of Israel did so,—and gathered, [some] more, and [some] less; 18 and when they measured it with the omer, he who had gathered more had nothing over, and he who had gathered less had no lack: each man what he needed for eating, did they gather. 19 And Moses said unto them,—Let, no man leave thereof, until morning. 20 But they hearkened not unto Moses, but certain men left thereof until morning, and it swarmed with worms and become loathsome,—and Moses was wroth with them. 21 Thus then they gathered it morning by morning, each man what he needed for eating, and as soon as the sun waxed hot, so soon it melted. 22 And it came to pass on the sixth day, that they gathered food twice as much, two omers for each one,—so all the princes of the assembly came in, and told Moses. 23 And he said unto them—That is what Yahweh spake. The observance of a holy sabbath to Yahweh, is to-morrow,—what ye would bake, bake and what ye would boil, boil, and all that is left over, put by you to keep until the morning. 24 So they put it by until the morning, as Moses had commanded,—and it gave no unpleasant odour, neither was there a worm, therein. 25 Then said Moses—Eat ye it to-day, for a sabbath, is to-day, unto Yahweh,—to-day, ye shall not find it in the field. 26 Six days, shall ye gather it,—but on the seventh day, a sabbath, it shall not be therein. 27 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that there went forth some of the people to gather,—but they found not. 28 Then said Yahweh unto Moses,—How long have ye refused to keep my commandments and my laws? 29 See because Yahweh hath given you the sabbath, for this cause, is, he, giving you on the sixth day, food for two days,—abide ye every man in his place, let no man go forth from his dwelling, on the seventh day, 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. 31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna,—and the same, was like coriander seed white, and the taste thereof, like flat-cake with honey, 32 And Moses said—This, is the thing which Yahweh hath commanded, Fill an omer therefrom as a thing to be preserved to your generations,—that they may see the bread wherewith I fed you in the desert, when I brought you forth out of the land of Egypt. 33 So Moses said unto Aaron—Take a single basket, and put therein an omer-full of manna,—and set it down before Yahweh, as a thing to be preserved to your generations. 34 As Yahweh gave command unto Moses, so did Aaron set it down before the testimony, as a thing to be preserved, 35 And, the sons of Israel did eat the manna forty years, until they entered into the land wherein they were to dwell,—the manna, they did eat until they entered into the bounds of the land of Canaan.
