Exodus 16

ESV 1 They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt. MSG 1 On the fifteenth day of the second month after they had left Egypt, the whole company of Israel moved on from Elim to the Wilderness of Sin which is between Elim and Sinai. ESV 2 And the whole congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness, MSG 2 The whole company of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron there in the wilderness. ESV 3 and the people of Israel said to them, "Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger." MSG 3 The Israelites said, "Why didn't God let us die in comfort in Egypt where we had lamb stew and all the bread we could eat? You've brought us out into this wilderness to starve us to death, the whole company of Israel!" ESV 4 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not. MSG 4 God said to Moses, "I'm going to rain bread down from the skies for you. The people will go out and gather each day's ration. I'm going to test them to see if they'll live according to my Teaching or not. ESV 5 On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily." MSG 5 On the sixth day, when they prepare what they have gathered, it will turn out to be twice as much as their daily ration." ESV 6 So Moses and Aaron said to all the people of Israel, "At evening you shall know that it was the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, MSG 6 Moses and Aaron told the People of Israel, "This evening you will know that it is God who brought you out of Egypt; ESV 7 and in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD, because he has heard your grumbling against the LORD. For what are we, that you grumble against us?" MSG 7 and in the morning you will see the Glory of God. Yes, he's listened to your complaints against him. You haven't been complaining against us, you know, but against God." ESV 8 And Moses said, "When the LORD gives you in the evening meat to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the LORD has heard your grumbling that you grumble against him--what are we? Your grumbling is not against us but against the LORD." MSG 8 Moses said, "Since it will be God who gives you meat for your meal in the evening and your fill of bread in the morning, it's God who will have listened to your complaints against him. Who are we in all this? You haven't been complaining to us - you've been complaining to God!" ESV 9 Then Moses said to Aaron, "Say to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, 'Come near before the LORD, for he has heard your grumbling.'" MSG 9 Moses instructed Aaron: "Tell the whole company of Israel: 'Come near to God. He's heard your complaints.'" ESV 10 And as soon as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud. MSG 10 When Aaron gave out the instructions to the whole company of Israel, they turned to face the wilderness. And there it was: the Glory of God visible in the Cloud. ESV 11 And the LORD said to Moses, MSG 11 God spoke to Moses, ESV 12 "I have heard the grumbling of the people of Israel. Say to them, 'At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.'" MSG 12 "I've listened to the complaints of the Israelites. Now tell them: 'At dusk you will eat meat and at dawn you'll eat your fill of bread; and you'll realize that I am God, your God.'" ESV 13 In the evening quail came up and covered the camp, and in the morning dew lay around the camp. MSG 13 That evening quail flew in and covered the camp and in the morning there was a layer of dew all over the camp. ESV 14 And when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as frost on the ground. MSG 14 When the layer of dew had lifted, there on the wilderness ground was a fine flaky something, fine as frost on the ground. ESV 15 When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, "What is it?" For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, "It is the bread that the LORD has given you to eat. MSG 15 The Israelites took one look and said to one another, man-hu (What is it?). They had no idea what it was. ESV 16 This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Gather of it, each one of you, as much as he can eat. You shall each take an omer, according to the number of the persons that each of you has in his tent.'" MSG 16 And these are God's instructions: 'Gather enough for each person, about two quarts per person; gather enough for everyone in your tent.'" ESV 17 And the people of Israel did so. They gathered, some more, some less. MSG 17 The People of Israel went to work and started gathering, some more, some less, ESV 18 But when they measured it with an omer, whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack. Each of them gathered as much as he could eat. MSG 18 but when they measured out what they had gathered, those who gathered more had no extra and those who gathered less weren't short - each person had gathered as much as was needed. ESV 19 And Moses said to them, "Let no one leave any of it over till the morning." MSG 19 Moses said to them, "Don't leave any of it until morning." ESV 20 But they did not listen to Moses. Some left part of it till the morning, and it bred worms and stank. And Moses was angry with them. MSG 20 But they didn't listen to Moses. A few of the men kept back some of it until morning. It got wormy and smelled bad. And Moses lost his temper with them. ESV 21 Morning by morning they gathered it, each as much as he could eat; but when the sun grew hot, it melted. MSG 21 They gathered it every morning, each person according to need. Then the sun heated up and it melted. ESV 22 On the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers each. And when all the leaders of the congregation came and told Moses, MSG 22 On the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, about four quarts per person. Then the leaders of the company came to Moses and reported. ESV 23 he said to them, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Tomorrow is a day of solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to the LORD; bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over lay aside to be kept till the morning.'" MSG 23 Moses said, "This is what God was talking about: Tomorrow is a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to God. Whatever you plan to bake, bake today; and whatever you plan to boil, boil today. Then set aside the leftovers until morning." ESV 24 So they laid it aside till the morning, as Moses commanded them, and it did not stink, and there were no worms in it. MSG 24 They set aside what was left until morning, as Moses had commanded. It didn't smell bad and there were no worms in it. ESV 25 Moses said, "Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the LORD; today you will not find it in the field. MSG 25 Moses said, "Now eat it; this is the day, a Sabbath for God. You won't find any of it on the ground today. ESV 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is a Sabbath, there will be none." MSG 26 Gather it every day for six days, but the seventh day is Sabbath; there won't be any of it on the ground." ESV 27 On the seventh day some of the people went out to gather, but they found none. MSG 27 On the seventh day, some of the people went out to gather anyway but they didn't find anything. ESV 28 And the LORD said to Moses, "How long will you refuse to keep my commandments and my laws? MSG 28 God said to Moses, "How long are you going to disobey my commands and not follow my instructions? ESV 29 See! The LORD has given you the Sabbath; therefore on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Remain each of you in his place; let no one go out of his place on the seventh day." MSG 29 Don't you see that God has given you the Sabbath? So on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. So, each of you, stay home. Don't leave home on the seventh day." ESV 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. MSG 30 So the people quit working on the seventh day. ESV 31 Now the house of Israel called its name manna. It was like coriander seed, white, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. MSG 31 The Israelites named it manna (What is it?). It looked like coriander seed, whitish. And it tasted like a cracker with honey. ESV 32 Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded: 'Let an omer of it be kept throughout your generations, so that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.'" MSG 32 Moses said, "This is God's command: 'Keep a two-quart jar of it, an omer, for future generations so they can see the bread that I fed you in the wilderness after I brought you out of Egypt.'" ESV 33 And Moses said to Aaron, "Take a jar, and put an omer of manna in it, and place it before the LORD to be kept throughout your generations." MSG 33 Moses told Aaron, "Take a jar and fill it with two quarts of manna. Place it before God, keeping it safe for future generations." ESV 34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron placed it before the testimony to be kept. MSG 34 Aaron did what God commanded Moses. He set it aside before The Testimony to preserve it. ESV 35 The people of Israel ate the manna forty years, till they came to a habitable land. They ate the manna till they came to the border of the land of Canaan. MSG 35 The Israelites ate the manna for forty years until they arrived at the land where they would settle down. They ate manna until they reached the border into Canaan. ESV 36 (An omer is the tenth part of an ephah.) MSG 36 According to ancient measurements, an omer is one-tenth of an ephah.
