The rabble with them began to crave other food,1 and again the Israelites started wailing2 and said, "If only we had meat to eat!
We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost--also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic.36
But now we have lost our appetite; we never see anything but this manna!4"
The manna was like coriander seed5 and looked like resin.68
The people went around gathering it,7 and then ground it in a handmill or crushed it in a mortar. They cooked it in a pot or made it into cakes. And it tasted like something made with olive oil.
When the dew8 settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down.
