1 Profectique sunt de Elim, et venit omnis congregatio filio rum Israel in desertum Sin, quod est inter Elim et Sinai, quinto decimo die mensis secundi postquam egressi sunt de terra Aegypti.
2 Et murmuravit omnis congregatio filiorum Israel contra Moysen et Aaron in solitudine,
3 dixeruntque filii Israel ad eos: "Utinam mortui essemus per manum Domini in terra Aegypti, quando sedebamus super ollas carnium et comedebamus panem in saturitate. Cur eduxistis nos in desertum istud, ut occideretis omnem coetum fame?"
4 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: "Ecce ego pluam vobis panes de caelo; egrediatur populus et colligat, quae sufficiunt per singulos dies, ut tentem eum, utrum ambulet in lege mea an non.
5 Die autem sexta parabunt quod intulerint, et duplum erit quam colligere solebant per singulos dies"
6 Dixeruntque Moyses et Aaron ad omnes filios Israel: "Vespere scietis quod Dominus eduxerit vos de terra Aegypti;
7 et mane videbitis gloriam Domini. Audivit enim murmur vestrum contra Dominum. Nos vero quid sumus, quia mussitatis contra nos?"
8 Et ait Moyses: "Dabit Dominus vobis vespere carnes edere et mane panes in saturitate, eo quod audierit murmurationes vestras, quibus murmurati estis contra eum. Nos enim quid sumus? Nec contra nos est murmur vestrum, sed contra Dominum"
9 Dixitque Moyses ad Aaron: "Dic universae congregationi filiorum Israel: Accedite coram Domino; audivit enim murmur ve strum"
10 Cumque loqueretur Aaron ad omnem coetum filiorum Israel, respexerunt ad solitudinem, et ecce gloria Domini apparuit in nube.
11 Locutus est autem Dominus ad Moysen dicens:
12 "Audivi murmurationes filiorum Israel. Loquere ad eos: Vespere comedetis carnes et mane saturabimini panibus scietisque quod ego sum Dominus Deus vester"
13 Factum est ergo vespere, et ascendens coturnix operuit castra; mane quoque ros iacuit per circuitum castrorum.
14 Cumque operuisset superficiem deserti, apparuit minutum et squamatum in similitudinem pruinae super terram.
15 Quod cum vidissent filii Israel, dixerunt ad invicem: "Manhu? "(quod significat: "Quid est hoc? ". Ignorabant enim quid esset. Quibus ait Moyses: "Iste est panis, quem dedit Dominus vobis ad vescendum.
16 Hic est sermo, quem praecepit Dominus: "Colligat ex eo unusquisque quantum sufficiat ad vescendum; gomor per singula capita iuxta numerum animarum vestrarum, quae habitant in tabernaculo, sic tolletis""
17 Feceruntque ita filii Israel; et collegerunt alius plus, alius minus.
18 Et mensi sunt ad mensuram gomor; nec qui plus collegerat, habuit amplius, nec qui minus paraverat, repperit minus, sed singuli, iuxta id quod edere poterant, congregaverunt.
19 Dixitque Moyses ad eos: "Nullus relinquat ex eo in mane"
20 Qui non audierunt eum, sed dimiserunt quidam ex eis usque mane, et scatere coepit vermibus atque computruit; et iratus est contra eos Moyses.
21 Colligebant autem mane singuli, quantum sufficere poterat ad vescendum; cumque incaluisset sol, liquefiebat.
22 In die autem sexta collegerunt cibos duplices, id est duo gomor per singulos homines. Venerunt autem omnes principes congregationis et narraverunt Moysi.
23 Qui ait eis: "Hoc est quod locutus est Dominus: Requies, sabbatum sanctum Domino cras; quodcumque torrendum est, torrete et, quae coquenda sunt, coquite; quidquid autem reliquum fuerit, reponite usque in mane"
24 Feceruntque ita, ut praeceperat Moyses, et non computruit, neque vermis inventus est in eo.
25 Dixitque Moyses: "Comedite illud hodie, quia sabbatum est Domino; non invenietur hodie in agro.
26 Sex diebus colligite; in die autem septimo sabbatum est Domino, idcirco non invenietur in eo"
27 Venitque septima dies; et egressi de populo, ut colligerent, non invenerunt.
28 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: "Usquequo non vultis custodire mandata mea et legem meam?
29 Videte quod Dominus dederit vobis sabbatum et propter hoc die sexta tribuit vobis cibos duplices; maneat unusquisque apud semetipsum, nullus egrediatur de loco suo die septimo"
30 Et sabbatizavit populus die septimo.
31 Appellavitque domus Israel nomen eius Man: quod erat quasi semen coriandri album, gustusque eius quasi similae cum melle.
32 Dixit autem Moyses: "Iste est sermo, quem praecepit Dominus: "Imple gomor ex eo, et custodiatur in generationes vestras, ut noverint panem, quo alui vos in solitudine, quando educti estis de terra Aegypti" "
33 Dixitque Moyses ad Aaron: "Sume vas unum et mitte ibi man, quantum potest capere gomor; et repone coram Domino ad servandum in generationes vestras"
34 Sicut praecepit Dominus Moysi, posuit illud Aaron coram testimonio reservandum.
35 Filii autem Israel comederunt man quadraginta annis, donec venirent in terram habitabilem; hoc cibo aliti sunt, usquequo tangerent fines terrae Chanaan.
36 Gomor autem decima pars est ephi.
King James Version
1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.
2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:
3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
4 ¶ Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.
6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:
7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?
8 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD.
9 ¶ And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before the LORD: for he hath heard your murmurings.
10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.
11 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God.
13 And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the 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 a 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, This 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 according to his eating, an 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.
18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
19 And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.
21 And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
22 ¶ And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
27 ¶ And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place 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 it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
32 ¶ And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your generations.
34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.
35 And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.
36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
