And the sons of Israel see, and say one unto another, `What [is] it?' for they have not known what it [is]; and Moses saith unto them, `It [is] the bread which Jehovah hath given to you for food.
`This [is] the thing which Jehovah hath commanded: Gather of it each according to his eating, an omer for a poll; and the number of your persons, take ye each for those in his tent.'
And the sons of Israel do so, and they gather, he who is [gathering] much, and he who is [gathering] little;
and they measure with an omer, and he who is [gathering] much hath nothing over, and he who is [gathering] little hath no lack, each according to his eating they have gathered.
And Moses saith unto them, `Let no man leave of it till morning;'
and they have not hearkened unto Moses, and some of them do leave of it till morning, and it bringeth up worms and stinketh; and Moses is wroth with them.

And they let it rest until the morning, as Moses hath commanded, and it hath not stank, and a worm hath not been in it.
