Exodus 16:17-27 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
17 The sons of Israel did so, and some gathered much and some little. 18 When they measured it with an omer, 1he who had gathered much had no excess, and he who had gathered little had no lack; every man gathered aas much as he should eat. 19 Moses said to them, "2Let no man leave any of it until morning." 20 But they did not listen to Moses, and some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and became foul; and Moses was angry with them. 21 They gathered it morning by morning, every man bas much as he should eat; but when the sun grew hot, it would melt.

The Sabbath Observed

22 3Now on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. When all the 4leaders of the congregation came and told Moses, 23 then he said to them, "This is what the LORD cmeant: 5Tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the LORD. Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and 6all that is left over dput aside to be kept until morning." 24 So they eput it aside until morning, as Moses had ordered, and 7it did not become foul nor was there any worm in it. 25 Moses said, "Eat it today, for today is a sabbath to the LORD; today you will not find it in the field. 26 "8Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the sabbath, there will be fnone." 27 It came about on the seventh day that some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.
