11:4 11 Now the mixed multitude12 who were among them craved more desirable foods,13 and so the Israelites wept again14 and said, “If only we had meat to eat!15 11:5 We remember16 the fish we used to eat17 freely18 in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. 11:6 But now we19 are dried up,20 and there is nothing at all before us21 except this manna!” 11:7 (Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color like the color of bdellium. 11:8 And the people went about and gathered it, and ground it with mills or pounded it in mortars; they baked it in pans and made cakes of it. It tasted like fresh olive oil.22 11:9 And when the dew came down23 on the camp in the night, the manna fell24 with it.)
