13 And it came to pass, that at even tthe quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning uthe 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 ua small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. 15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, ||It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, xThis is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat. 16 This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, Gather of it every man yaccording to his eating, zan 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 Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
Or, What is this? or, It is a portion. Comp. ver. 31.
