And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel
That is, Aaron spoke in the name of Moses to them, he being his spokesman, appointed of God to speak for him, and both spoke to them as from the Lord:
at even, then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the
land of Egypt:
that they were brought out they knew, but they make this to be an act and deed of Moses and Aaron, ( Exodus 16:3 ) whereas it was the work of the Lord; and at evening they should have a fresh proof of it, and that they were not brought forth to be killed with hunger, as they complained, by the quails coming up and covering their camp, whereby they would have flesh to eat, ( Exodus 16:12 ) .
