The Israelites said to them, "If only we had died by the LORD's hand in Egypt!4 There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food5 we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death."6
Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from heaven7 for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test8 them and see whether they will follow my instructions.
Moses also said, "You will know that it was the LORD when he gives you meat to eat in the evening and all the bread you want in the morning, because he has heard your grumbling14 against him. Who are we? You are not grumbling against us, but against the LORD."15
