Exodus 16

ASV 1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. NIV 1 The whole Israelite community set out from Elim and came to the Desert of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had come out of Egypt. ASV 2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron in the wilderness: NIV 2 In the desert the whole community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. ASV 3 and the children of Israel said unto them, Would that we had died by the hand of Jehovah in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger. NIV 3 The Israelites said to them, "If only we had died by the LORD's hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death." ASV 4 Then said Jehovah unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or not. NIV 4 Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. ASV 5 And it shall come to pass on the sixth day, that they shall prepare that which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. NIV 5 On the sixth day they are to prepare what they bring in, and that is to be twice as much as they gather on the other days." ASV 6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that Jehovah hath brought you out from the land of Egypt; NIV 6 So Moses and Aaron said to all the Israelites, "In the evening you will know that it was the LORD who brought you out of Egypt, ASV 7 and in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of Jehovah; for that he heareth your murmurings against Jehovah: and what are we, that ye murmur against us? NIV 7 and in the morning you will see the glory of the LORD, because he has heard your grumbling against him. Who are we, that you should grumble against us?" ASV 8 And Moses said, [This shall be], when Jehovah shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that Jehovah heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against Jehovah. NIV 8 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 grumbling against him. Who are we? You are not grumbling against us, but against the LORD." ASV 9 And Moses said unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, Come near before Jehovah; for he hath heard your murmurings. NIV 9 Then Moses told Aaron, "Say to the entire Israelite community, 'Come before the LORD, for he has heard your grumbling.' " ASV 10 And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of Jehovah appeared in the cloud. NIV 10 While Aaron was speaking to the whole Israelite community, they looked toward the desert, and there was the glory of the LORD appearing in the cloud. ASV 11 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, NIV 11 The LORD said to Moses, ASV 12 I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread: and ye shall know that I am Jehovah your God. NIV 12 "I have heard the grumbling of the Israelites. Tell them, 'At twilight you will eat meat, and in the morning you will be filled with bread. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.' " ASV 13 And it came to pass at even, that the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the camp. NIV 13 That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. ASV 14 And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness a small round thing, small as the hoar-frost on the ground. NIV 14 When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. ASV 15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, What is it? For they knew not what it was. And Moses said unto them, It is the bread which Jehovah hath given you to eat. NIV 15 When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. Moses said to them, "It is the bread the LORD has given you to eat. ASV 16 This is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, Gather ye of it every man according to his eating; an omer a head, according to the number of your persons, shall ye take it, every man for them that are in his tent. NIV 16 This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Each one is to gather as much as he needs. Take an omer for each person you have in your tent.' " ASV 17 And the children of Israel did so, and gathered some more, some less. NIV 17 The Israelites did as they were told; some gathered much, some little. ASV 18 And when they measured it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. NIV 18 And when they measured it by the omer, he who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little. Each one gathered as much as he needed. ASV 19 And Moses said unto them, Let no man leave of it till the morning. NIV 19 Then Moses said to them, "No one is to keep any of it until morning." ASV 20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and became foul: and Moses was wroth with them. NIV 20 However, some of them paid no attention to Moses; they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of maggots and began to smell. So Moses was angry with them. ASV 21 And they gathered it morning by morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted. NIV 21 Each morning everyone gathered as much as he needed, and when the sun grew hot, it melted away. ASV 22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. NIV 22 On the sixth day, they gathered twice as much--two omers for each person--and the leaders of the community came and reported this to Moses. ASV 23 And he said unto them, This is that which Jehovah hath spoken, Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy sabbath unto Jehovah: bake that which ye will bake, and boil that which ye will boil; and all that remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. NIV 23 He said to them, "This is what the LORD commanded: 'Tomorrow is to be a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the LORD. So bake what you want to bake and boil what you want to boil. Save whatever is left and keep it until morning.' " ASV 24 And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not become foul, neither was there any worm therein. NIV 24 So they saved it until morning, as Moses commanded, and it did not stink or get maggots in it. ASV 25 And Moses said, Eat that to-day; for to-day is a sabbath unto Jehovah: to-day ye shall not find it in the field. NIV 25 "Eat it today," Moses said, "because today is a Sabbath to the LORD. You will not find any of it on the ground today. ASV 26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day is the sabbath, in it there shall be none. NIV 26 Six days you are to gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will not be any." ASV 27 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that there went out some of the people to gather, and they found none. NIV 27 Nevertheless, some of the people went out on the seventh day to gather it, but they found none. ASV 28 And Jehovah said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws? NIV 28 Then the LORD said to Moses, "How long will you refuse to keep my commands and my instructions? ASV 29 See, for that Jehovah hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day. NIV 29 Bear in mind that the LORD has given you the Sabbath; that is why on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Everyone is to stay where he is on the seventh day; no one is to go out." ASV 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. NIV 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. ASV 31 And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers [made] with honey. NIV 31 The people of Israel called the bread manna. It was white like coriander seed and tasted like wafers made with honey. ASV 32 And Moses said, This is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded, Let an omerful of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread wherewith I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt. NIV 32 Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Take an omer of manna and keep it for the generations to come, so they can see the bread I gave you to eat in the desert when I brought you out of Egypt.' " ASV 33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omerful of manna therein, and lay it up before Jehovah, to be kept throughout your generations. NIV 33 So Moses said to Aaron, "Take a jar and put an omer of manna in it. Then place it before the LORD to be kept for the generations to come." ASV 34 As Jehovah commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. NIV 34 As the LORD commanded Moses, Aaron put the manna in front of the Testimony, that it might be kept. ASV 35 And the children of Israel did eat the manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat the manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan. NIV 35 The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna until they reached the border of Canaan. ASV 36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah. NIV 36 (An omer is one tenth of an ephah.)
