Bible: Ex 16:1-5

16:1

The Provision of Manna

1 

When 2  they journeyed from Elim, the entire company 3  of Israelites came to the Desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their exodus 4  from the land of Egypt. 16:2 The entire company 5  of Israelites murmured against Moses and Aaron in the desert. 16:3 The Israelites said to them, “If only we had died 6  by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by 7  the pots of meat, when we ate bread to the full, 8  for you have brought us out into this desert to kill 9  this whole assembly with hunger!

16:4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain 10  bread from heaven for you, and the people will go out 11  and gather the amount for each day, so that I may test them. 12  Will they walk in my law 13  or not? 16:5 On the sixth day 14  they will prepare what they bring in, and it will be twice as much as they gather every other day.” 15
