Exodus 16


1  And they took their journey5265 from Elim,4480 362 and all3605 the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel3478 came935 unto413 the wilderness4057 of Sin,5512 which834 is between996 Elim362 and Sinai,5514 on the fifteenth2508 6240 day3117 of the second8145 month2320 after their departing out3318 of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

2  And the whole3605 congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel3478 murmured3885 against5921 Moses4872 and Aaron175 in the wilderness:4057

3  And the children1121 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 them, Would to God4310 5414 we had died4191 by the hand3027 of the LORD3068 in the land776 of Egypt,4714 when we sat3427 by5921 the flesh1320 pots,5518 and when we did eat398 bread3899 to the full;7648 for3588 ye have brought us forth3318 853 into413 this2088 wilderness,4057 to kill4191 853 this2088 whole3605 assembly6951 with hunger.7458

4  Then said559 the LORD3068 unto413 Moses,4872 Behold,2009 I will rain4305 bread3899 from4480 heaven8064 for you; and the people5971 shall go out3318 and gather3950 a certain rate every day,1697 3117 3117 that4616 I may prove5254 them, whether they will walk1980 in my law,8451 or518 no.3808

5  And it shall come to pass,1961 that on the sixth8345 day3117 they shall prepare3559 853 that which834 they bring in;935 and it shall be1961 twice4932 as much as5921 834 they gather3950 daily.3117 3117

6  And Moses4872 and Aaron175 said559 unto413 all3605 the children1121 of Israel,3478 At even,6153 then ye shall know3045 that3588 the LORD3068 hath brought you out3318 853 from the land4480 776 of Egypt:4714

7  And in the morning,1242 then ye shall see7200 853 the glory3519 of the LORD;3068 for that he heareth8085 853 your murmurings8519 against5921 the LORD:3068 and what4100 are we,5168 that3588 ye murmur3885 against5921 us?

8  And Moses4872 said,559 This shall be, when the LORD3068 shall give5414 you in the evening6153 flesh1320 to eat,398 and in the morning1242 bread3899 to the full;7646 for that the LORD3068 heareth8085 853 your murmurings8519 which834 ye859 murmur3885 against5921 him: and what4100 are we?5168 your murmurings8519 are not3808 against5921 us, but3588 against5921 the LORD.3068

9  And Moses4872 spoke559 unto413 Aaron,175 Say559 unto413 all3605 the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 Come near7126 before6440 the LORD:3068 for3588 he hath heard8085 853 your murmurings.8519

10  And it came to pass,1961 as Aaron175 spoke1696 unto413 the whole3605 congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 that they looked6437 toward413 the wilderness,4057 and, behold,2009 the glory3519 of the LORD3068 appeared7200 in the cloud.6051

11  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

12  I have heard8085 853 the murmurings8519 of the children1121 of Israel:3478 speak1696 unto413 them, saying,559 At996 even6153 ye shall eat398 flesh,1320 and in the morning1242 ye shall be filled7646 with bread;3899 and ye shall know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD3068 your God.430

13  And it came to pass,1961 that at even6153 the quails7958 came up,5927 and covered3680 853 the camp:4264 and in the morning1242 the dew2919 lay1961 7902 round about5439 the host.4264

14  And when the dew2919 that lay7902 was gone up,5927 behold,2009 upon5921 the face6440 of the wilderness4057 there lay a small1851 round thing,2636 as small1851 as the hoar frost3713 on5921 the ground.776

15  And when the children1121 of Israel3478 saw7200 it, they said559 one376 to413 another,251 It1931 is manna:4478 for3588 they knew3045 not3808 what4100 it1931 was. And Moses4872 said559 unto413 them, This1931 is the bread3899 which834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 you to eat.402

16  This2088 is the thing1697 which834 the LORD3068 hath commanded,6680 Gather3950 of4480 it every man376 according to6310 his eating,400 an omer6016 for every man,1538 according to the number4557 of your persons;5315 take3947 ye every man376 for them which834 are in his tents.168

17  And the children1121 of Israel3478 did6213 so,3651 and gathered,3950 some more,7235 some less.4591

18  And when they did mete4058 it with an omer,6016 he that gathered much7235 had nothing over,5736 3808 and he that gathered little4591 had no3808 lack;2637 they gathered3950 every man376 according to6310 his eating.400

19  And Moses4872 said,559 Let no408 man376 leave3498 of4480 it till5704 the morning.1242

20  Notwithstanding they hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 Moses;4872 but some376 of them left3498 of4480 it until5704 the morning,1242 and it bred7311 worms,8438 and stank:887 and Moses4872 was wroth7107 with5921 them.

21  And they gathered3950 it every morning,1242 1242 every man376 according to6310 his eating:400 and when the sun8121 waxed hot,2552 it melted.4549

22  And it came to pass,1961 that on the sixth8345 day3117 they gathered3950 twice as much4932 bread,3899 two8147 omers6016 for one259 man: and all3605 the rulers5387 of the congregation5712 came935 and told5046 Moses.4872

23  And he said559 unto413 them, This1931 is that which834 the LORD3068 hath said,1696 Tomorrow4279 is the rest7677 of the holy6944 sabbath7676 unto the LORD:3068 bake644 that 853 which834 ye will bake644 today, and seethe1310 that834 ye will seethe;1310 and that which3605 remaineth over5736 lay up5117 for you to be kept4931 until5704 the morning.1242

24  And they laid it up5117 853 till5704 the morning,1242 as834 Moses4872 bade:6680 and it did not3808 stink,887 neither3808 was1961 there any worm7415 therein.

25  And Moses4872 said,559 Eat398 that today;3117 for3588 today3117 is a sabbath7676 unto the LORD:3068 today3117 ye shall not3808 find4672 it in the field.7704

26  Six8337 days3117 ye shall gather3950 it; but on the seventh7637 day,3117 which is the sabbath,7676 in it there shall be1961 none.3808

27  And it came to pass,1961 that there went out3318 some of4480 the people5971 on the seventh7637 day3117 for to gather,3950 and they found4672 none.3808

28  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Moses,4872 How long5704 575 refuse3985 ye to keep8104 my commandments4687 and my laws?8451

29  See,7200 for3588 that the LORD3068 hath given5414 you the sabbath,7676 therefore5921 3651 he1931 giveth5414 you on the sixth8345 day3117 the bread3899 of two days;3117 abide3427 ye every man376 in his place,8478 let no408 man376 go out3318 of his place4480 4725 on the seventh7637 day.3117

30  So the people5971 rested7673 on the seventh7637 day.3117

31  And the house1004 of Israel3478 called7121 853 the name8034 thereof Manna:4478 and it1931 was like coriander1407 seed,2233 white;3836 and the taste2940 of it was like wafers6838 made with honey.1706

32  And Moses4872 said,559 This2088 is the thing1697 which834 the LORD3068 commandeth,6680 Fill4393 an omer6016 of4480 it to be kept4931 for your generations;1755 that4616 they may see7200 853 the bread3899 wherewith834 I have fed398 you in the wilderness,4057 when I brought you forth3318 853 from the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

33  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 Aaron,175 Take3947 a259 pot,6803 and put5414 an omer6016 full4393 of manna4478 therein,8033 and lay it up5117 853 before6440 the LORD,3068 to be kept4931 for your generations.1755

34  As834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 413 Moses,4872 so Aaron175 laid it up5117 before6440 the Testimony,5715 to be kept.4931

35  And the children1121 of Israel3478 did eat398 853 manna4478 forty705 years,8141 until5704 they came935 to413 a land776 inhabited;3427 they did eat398 853 manna,4478 until5704 they came935 unto413 the borders7097 of the land776 of Canaan.3667

36  Now an omer6016 is the tenth6224 part of an ephah.374


1 ἀπῆραν δὲ ἐξ Αιλιμ καὶ ἤλθοσαν πᾶσα συναγωγὴ υἱῶν Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν ἔρημον Σιν ὅ ἐστιν ἀνὰ μέσον Αιλιμ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Σινα τῇ δὲ πεντεκαιδεκάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ τῷ μηνὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ ἐξεληλυθότων αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

2 διεγόγγυζεν πᾶσα συναγωγὴ υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐπὶ Μωυσῆν καὶ Ααρων

3 καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς αὐτοὺς οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ὄφελον ἀπεθάνομεν πληγέντες ὑπὸ κυρίου ἐν γῇ Αἰγύπτῳ ὅταν ἐκαθίσαμεν ἐπὶ τῶν λεβήτων τῶν κρεῶν καὶ ἠσθίομεν ἄρτους εἰς πλησμονήν ὅτι ἐξηγάγετε ἡμᾶς εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ταύτην ἀποκτεῖναι πᾶσαν τὴν συναγωγὴν ταύτην ἐν λιμῷ

4 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ὕω ὑμῖν ἄρτους ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐξελεύσεται ὁ λαὸς καὶ συλλέξουσιν τὸ τῆς ἡμέρας εἰς ἡμέραν ὅπως πειράσω αὐτοὺς εἰ πορεύσονται τῷ νόμῳ μου ἢ οὔ

5 καὶ ἔσται τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἕκτῃ καὶ ἑτοιμάσουσιν ὃ ἐὰν εἰσενέγκωσιν καὶ ἔσται διπλοῦν ὃ ἐὰν συναγάγωσιν τὸ καθ᾽ ἡμέραν εἰς ἡμέραν

6 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ααρων πρὸς πᾶσαν συναγωγὴν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἑσπέρας γνώσεσθε ὅτι κύριος ἐξήγαγεν ὑμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

7 καὶ πρωὶ ὄψεσθε τὴν δόξαν κυρίου ἐν τῷ εἰσακοῦσαι τὸν γογγυσμὸν ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τῷ θεῷ ἡμεῖς δὲ τί ἐσμεν ὅτι διαγογγύζετε καθ᾽ ἡμῶν

8 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς ἐν τῷ διδόναι κύριον ὑμῖν ἑσπέρας κρέα φαγεῖν καὶ ἄρτους τὸ πρωὶ εἰς πλησμονὴν διὰ τὸ εἰσακοῦσαι κύριον τὸν γογγυσμὸν ὑμῶν ὃν ὑμεῖς διαγογγύζετε καθ᾽ ἡμῶν ἡμεῖς δὲ τί ἐσμεν οὐ γὰρ καθ᾽ ἡμῶν ὁ γογγυσμὸς ὑμῶν ἐστιν ἀλλ᾽ ἢ κατὰ τοῦ θεοῦ

9 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς Ααρων εἰπὸν πάσῃ συναγωγῇ υἱῶν Ισραηλ προσέλθατε ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰσακήκοεν γὰρ ὑμῶν τὸν γογγυσμόν

10 ἡνίκα δὲ ἐλάλει Ααρων πάσῃ συναγωγῇ υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπεστράφησαν εἰς τὴν ἔρημον καὶ ἡ δόξα κυρίου ὤφθη ἐν νεφέλῃ

11 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

12 εἰσακήκοα τὸν γογγυσμὸν τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ λάλησον πρὸς αὐτοὺς λέγων τὸ πρὸς ἑσπέραν ἔδεσθε κρέα καὶ τὸ πρωὶ πλησθήσεσθε ἄρτων καὶ γνώσεσθε ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεὸς ὑμῶν

13 ἐγένετο δὲ ἑσπέρα καὶ ἀνέβη ὀρτυγομήτρα καὶ ἐκάλυψεν τὴν παρεμβολήν τὸ πρωὶ ἐγένετο καταπαυομένης τῆς δρόσου κύκλῳ τῆς παρεμβολῆς

14 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τῆς ἐρήμου λεπτὸν ὡσεὶ κόριον λευκὸν ὡσεὶ πάγος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

15 ἰδόντες δὲ αὐτὸ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ εἶπαν ἕτερος τῷ ἑτέρῳ τί ἐστιν τοῦτο οὐ γὰρ ᾔδεισαν τί ἦν εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς αὐτούς οὗτος ὁ ἄρτος ὃν ἔδωκεν κύριος ὑμῖν φαγεῖν

16 τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ συνέταξεν κύριος συναγάγετε ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἕκαστος εἰς τοὺς καθήκοντας γομορ κατὰ κεφαλὴν κατὰ ἀριθμὸν ψυχῶν ὑμῶν ἕκαστος σὺν τοῖς συσκηνίοις ὑμῶν συλλέξατε

17 ἐποίησαν δὲ οὕτως οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ συνέλεξαν ὁ τὸ πολὺ καὶ ὁ τὸ ἔλαττον

18 καὶ μετρήσαντες τῷ γομορ οὐκ ἐπλεόνασεν ὁ τὸ πολύ καὶ ὁ τὸ ἔλαττον οὐκ ἠλαττόνησεν ἕκαστος εἰς τοὺς καθήκοντας παρ᾽ ἑαυτῷ συνέλεξαν

19 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς αὐτούς μηδεὶς καταλιπέτω ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πρωί

20 καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσαν Μωυσῆ ἀλλὰ κατέλιπόν τινες ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πρωί καὶ ἐξέζεσεν σκώληκας καὶ ἐπώζεσεν καὶ ἐπικράνθη ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς

21 καὶ συνέλεξαν αὐτὸ πρωὶ πρωί ἕκαστος τὸ καθῆκον αὐτῷ ἡνίκα δὲ διεθέρμαινεν ὁ ἥλιος ἐτήκετο

22 ἐγένετο δὲ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἕκτῃ συνέλεξαν τὰ δέοντα διπλᾶ δύο Γομορ τῷ ἑνί εἰσήλθοσαν δὲ πάντες οἱ ἄρχοντες τῆς συναγωγῆς καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν Μωυσεῖ

23 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς πρὸς αὐτούς τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμά ἐστιν ὃ ἐλάλησεν κύριος σάββατα ἀνάπαυσις ἁγία τῷ κυρίῳ αὔριον ὅσα ἐὰν πέσσητε πέσσετε καὶ ὅσα ἐὰν ἕψητε ἕψετε καὶ πᾶν τὸ πλεονάζον καταλίπετε αὐτὸ εἰς ἀποθήκην εἰς τὸ πρωί

24 καὶ κατελίποσαν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ πρωί καθάπερ συνέταξεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς καὶ οὐκ ἐπώζεσεν οὐδὲ σκώληξ ἐγένετο ἐν αὐτῷ

25 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς φάγετε σήμερον ἔστιν γὰρ σάββατα σήμερον τῷ κυρίῳ οὐχ εὑρεθήσεται ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ

26 ἓξ ἡμέρας συλλέξετε τῇ δὲ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ σάββατα ὅτι οὐκ ἔσται ἐν αὐτῇ

27 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ἐξήλθοσάν τινες ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ συλλέξαι καὶ οὐχ εὗρον

28 εἶπεν δὲ κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν ἕως τίνος οὐ βούλεσθε εἰσακούειν τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὸν νόμον μου

29 ἴδετε ὁ γὰρ κύριος ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν τὴν ἡμέραν ταύτην τὰ σάββατα διὰ τοῦτο αὐτὸς ἔδωκεν ὑμῖν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἕκτῃ ἄρτους δύο ἡμερῶν καθήσεσθε ἕκαστος εἰς τοὺς οἴκους ὑμῶν μηδεὶς ἐκπορευέσθω ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ

30 καὶ ἐσαββάτισεν ὁ λαὸς τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ

31 καὶ ἐπωνόμασαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Μαν ἦν δὲ ὡς σπέρμα κορίου λευκόν τὸ δὲ γεῦμα αὐτοῦ ὡς ἐγκρὶς ἐν μέλιτι

32 εἶπεν δὲ Μωυσῆς τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ συνέταξεν κύριος πλήσατε τὸ γομορ τοῦ μαν εἰς ἀποθήκην εἰς τὰς γενεὰς ὑμῶν ἵνα ἴδωσιν τὸν ἄρτον ὃν ἐφάγετε ὑμεῖς ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ὡς ἐξήγαγεν ὑμᾶς κύριος ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

33 καὶ εἶπεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς Ααρων λαβὲ στάμνον χρυσοῦν ἕνα καὶ ἔμβαλε εἰς αὐτὸν πλῆρες τὸ γομορ τοῦ μαν καὶ ἀποθήσεις αὐτὸ ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς διατήρησιν εἰς τὰς γενεὰς ὑμῶν

34 ὃν τρόπον συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ καὶ ἀπέθετο Ααρων ἐναντίον τοῦ μαρτυρίου εἰς διατήρησιν

35 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἔφαγον τὸ μαν ἔτη τεσσαράκοντα ἕως ἦλθον εἰς γῆν οἰκουμένην τὸ μαν ἐφάγοσαν ἕως παρεγένοντο εἰς μέρος τῆς Φοινίκης

36 τὸ δὲ γομορ τὸ δέκατον τῶν τριῶν μέτρων ἦν

1 Profectique sunt de Elim, et venit omnis multitudo filiorum Israël in desertum Sin, quod est inter Elim et Sinai, quintodecimo die mensis secundi, postquam egressi sunt de terra Ægypti.

2 Et murmuravit omnis congregatio filiorum Israël contra Moysen et Aaron in solitudine.

3 Dixeruntque filii Israël ad eos: Utinam mortui essemus per manum Domini in terra Ægypti, quando sedebamus super ollas carnium, et comedebamus panem in saturitate: cur eduxistis nos in desertum istud, ut occideretis omnem multitudinem fame?

4 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: Ecce ego pluam vobis panes de cælo: egrediatur populus, et colligat quæ sufficiunt per singulos dies: ut tentem eum utrum ambulet in lege mea, an non.

5 Die autem sexto parent quod inferant: et sit duplum quam colligere solebant per singulos dies.

6 Dixeruntque Moyses et Aaron ad omnes filios Israël: Vespere scietis quod Dominus eduxerit vos de terra Ægypti,

7 et mane videbitis gloriam Domini: audivit enim murmur vestrum contra Dominum: nos vero quid sumus, quia mussitastis contra nos?

8 Et ait Moyses: Dabit vobis Dominus vespere carnes edere, et mane panes in saturitate: eo quod audierit murmurationes vestras quibus murmurati estis contra eum: nos enim quid sumus? nec contra nos est murmur vestrum, sed contra Dominum.

9 Dixit quoque Moyses ad Aaron: Dic universæ congregationi filiorum Israël: Accedite coram Domino: audivit enim murmur vestrum.

10 Cumque loqueretur Aaron ad omnem cœtum filiorum Israël, respexerunt ad solitudinem: et ecce gloria Domini apparuit in nube.

11 Locutus est autem Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

12 Audivi murmurationes filiorum Israël. Loquere ad eos: Vespere comedetis carnes, et mane saturabimini panibus: scietisque quod ego sum Dominus Deus vester.

13 Factum est ergo vespere, et ascendens coturnix, cooperuit castra: mane quoque ros jacuit per circuitum castrorum.

14 Cumque operuisset superficiem terræ, apparuit in solitudine minutum, et quasi pilo tusum in similitudinem pruinæ super terram.

15 Quod cum vidissent filii Israël, dixerunt ad invicem: Manhu? quod significat: Quid est hoc? ignorabant enim quid esset. Quibus ait Moyses: Iste est panis quem Dominus dedit vobis ad vescendum.

16 Hic est sermo, quem præcepit Dominus: Colligat unusquisque ex eo quantum sufficit ad vescendum: gomor per singula capita, juxta numerum animarum vestrarum quæ habitant in tabernaculo sic tolletis.

17 Feceruntque ita filii Israël: et collegerunt, alius plus, alius minus.

18 Et mensi sunt ad mensuram gomor: nec qui plus collegerat, habuit amplius: nec qui minus paraverat, reperit minus: sed singuli juxta id quod edere poterant, congregaverunt.

19 Dixitque Moyses ad eos: Nullus relinquat ex eo in mane.

20 Qui non audierunt eum, sed dimiserunt quidam ex eis usque mane, et scatere cœpit vermibus, atque computruit: et iratus est contra eos Moyses.

21 Colligebant autem mane singuli, quantum sufficere poterat ad vescendum: cumque incaluisset sol, liquefiebat.

22 In die autem sexta collegerunt cibos duplices, id est, duo gomor per singulos homines: venerunt autem omnes principes multitudinis, et narraverunt Moysi.

23 Qui ait eis: Hoc est quod locutus est Dominus: Requies sabbati sanctificata est Domino cras: quodcumque operandum est, facite, et quæ coquenda sunt coquite: quidquid autem reliquum fuerit, reponite usque in mane.

24 Feceruntque ita ut præceperat Moyses, et non computruit, neque vermis inventus est in eo.

25 Dixitque Moyses: Comedite illud hodie, quia sabbatum est Domini: non invenietur hodie in agro.

26 Sex diebus colligite: in die autem septimo sabbatum est Domini, idcirco non invenietur.

27 Venitque septima dies: et egressi de populo ut colligerent, non invenerunt.

28 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen: Usquequo non vultis custodire mandata mea et legem meam?

29 videte quod Dominus dederit vobis sabbatum, et propter hoc die sexta tribuit vobis cibos duplices: maneat unusquisque apud semetipsum; nullus egrediatur de loco suo die septimo.

30 Et sabbatizavit populus die septimo.

31 Appellavitque domus Israël nomen ejus Man: quod erat quasi semen coriandri album, gustusque ejus quasi similæ cum melle.

32 Dixit autem Moyses: Iste est sermo, quem præcepit Dominus: Imple gomor ex eo, et custodiatur in futuras retro generationes: ut noverint panem, quo alui vos in solitudine, quando educti estis de terra Ægypti.

33 Dixitque Moyses ad Aaron: Sume vas unum, et mitte ibi man, quantum potest capere gomor, et repone coram Domino ad servandum in generationes vestras,

34 sicut præcepit Dominus Moysi. Posuitque illud Aaron in tabernaculo reservandum.

35 Filii autem Israël comederunt man quadraginta annis, donec venirent in terram habitabilem: hoc cibo aliti sunt, usquequo tangerent fines terræ Chanaan.

36 Gomor autem decima pars est ephi.
