And they journeyed from Elim, and all the assemblage of the sons of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, in the fifteenth day of the second month of their going out of the land of Egypt.
And the sons of Israel said to them, O that we had died by the hand of Jehovah in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pot, when we did eat bread to satisfaction! for you have brought us out to this wilderness, to kill this whole congregation with hunger.
And Jehovah said to▵ Moses, Behold, I am making it rain bread for you from the heavens, and the people shall go··out, and they shall collect the portion* of a day in its day, in order that I may tempt them, whether they will walk◦ in My law, or not.
And Moses said, In that Jehovah shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to satisfy; in that Jehovah hears your murmurings with which you◦ murmur against Him; and what are we▵? your murmurings are not against us, but◦ against Jehovah.
I have heard the murmurings of the sons of Israel; speak to▵ them, saying, Between the two··evenings* you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be satisfied with bread; and you shall know that I◦ am Jehovah your God.
This is the word that Jehovah has commanded, Collect ye of it, each··man◦ according··to the mouth of his eating, an omer a poll*, according to the number of your souls, take ye, each··man◦, for them who are in his tent.
And he said to▵ them, This◦ is what Jehovah spoke, A rest◦, a Sabbath holy to Jehovah, is tomorrow; what you will bake, bake; and what you will cook, cook; and all that is left··over place ye aside for yourselves for keeping until the morning.
See ye, for Jehovah has given you the Sabbath, therefore He◦ gives you on the sixth day the bread of two··days; sit ye, a man◦ where he is*, let not a man◦ go··out from his place on◦ the seventh day.
And Moses said, This is the word which Jehovah has commanded, Fill an omer with it to be kept for your generations, to the end that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought· you ·out from the land of Egypt.
