Ex 16:1
16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the
     congregation of the children of Israel came unto the
     wilderness of {a} Sin, which [is] between Elim and Sinai,
     on the fifteenth day of the second month after their
     departing out of the land of Egypt.

     (a) This is the eighth place in which they had camped,
         there is another place called Zin, which was the 33rd
         place in which they camped, and is also called Kadesh,
         Nu 33:36.

Ex 16:3
16:3 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 {b} 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.

     (b) It is a hard thing for the flesh not to complain
         against God when the stomach is empty.

Ex 16:4
16:4 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 {c} day, that I may prove them,
     whether they will walk in my law, or no.

     (c) To signify that they should patiently depend on God's
         providence from day to day.

Ex 16:7
16:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the
     LORD; {d} for that he heareth your murmurings against the
     LORD: and what [are] we, that ye murmur against us?

     (d) He did not give them Manna because they complained, but
         because of his promise.

Ex 16:8
16:8 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 {e} LORD.

     (e) He that condemns God's ministers, condemns God himself.

Ex 16:15
16:15 And when the children of Israel saw [it], they said one to
      another, It [is] {f} 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.

      (f) Which signifies a part, portion, or gift: also meat

Ex 16:16
16:16 This [is] the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather
      of it every man according to his eating, {g} an omer for
      every man, [according to] the number of your persons; take
      ye every man for [them] which [are] in his tents.

      (g) Which contains about half a gallon in our measure.

Ex 16:18
16:18 And when they did mete [it] with an omer, he that gathered
      much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no
      {h} lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

      (h) God richly feeds everyone, and no one can justly

Ex 16:20
16:20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of
      them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and
      {i} stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

      (i) No creature is so pure, but being abused it turns to
          our destruction.

Ex 16:22
16:22 And it came to pass, [that] on the sixth day they gathered
      {k} twice as much bread, two omers for one [man]: and all
      the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.

      (k) Which would serve for the Sabbath and the day before.

Ex 16:25
16:25 And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day [is] a sabbath
      unto the LORD: to day ye shall not {l} find it in the

      (l) God took away the opportunity for their labour, to
          signify how holy he would have the Sabbath kept.

Ex 16:27
16:27 And it came to pass, [that] there {m} went out [some] of
      the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they
      found none.

      (m) Their unfaithfulness was so great, that they did
          exactly the opposite of God's commandment.

Ex 16:31
16:31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and
      it [was] like {n} coriander seed, white; and the taste of
      it [was] like wafers [made] with honey.

      (n) In form and figure, but not in colour; Nu 11:7.

Ex 16:33
16:33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a {o} pot, and put an omer
      full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to
      be kept for your generations.

      (o) Of this vessel read He 9:4.

Ex 16:34
16:34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before
      the {p} Testimony, to be kept.

      (p) That is, the Ark of the covenant that is, after the
          Ark was made.

Ex 16:36
16:36 Now an omer [is] the tenth [part] of an {q} ephah.

      (q) Which measure contained about five gallons.
