Exodus 16:22-36

The Sabbath Observed

22 1Now on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each one. When all the 2leaders of the congregation came and told Moses,
23 then he said to them, "This is what the LORD meant: 3Tomorrow is a sabbath observance, a holy sabbath to the LORD. Bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and 4all that is left over put aside to be kept until morning."
24 So they put it aside until morning, as Moses had ordered, and 5it 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 "6Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the sabbath, there will be none."
27 It came about on the seventh day that some of the people went out to gather, but they found none.
28 Then the LORD said to Moses, "7How long do you refuse to keep My commandments and My instructions?
29 "See, the LORD has given you the sabbath; therefore * He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Remain every man in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day."
30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
31 The house of 8Israel named * it manna, and it was like 9coriander seed, white, and its taste was like wafers with honey.
32 Then Moses said, "This is what * the LORD has commanded, 'Let an omerful of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread that I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.' "
33 Moses said to Aaron, "10Take a jar and put an omerful of manna in it, and place it before the LORD to be kept throughout your generations."
34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron placed it before 11the Testimony, to be kept.
35 12The sons of Israel ate the manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate the manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.
36 (Now 13an omer is a tenth of an ephah.)
