Exodus 16:11-15

11And the  Lord said to Moses, 12“I a  have heard the grumbling of the people of Israel. Say to them, ‘At b  twilight you shall eat meat, and c  in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you shall know that I am the  Lord your God.’”

13In the evening d  quail came up and covered the camp, and in the morning e  dew lay around the camp. 14And 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. 15When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, f  “What is it?”
Or “It is manna.” Hebrew man hu
For they h  did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, i  “It is the bread that the  Lord has given you to eat.

Numbers 11:4-9

4Now the j  rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also k  wept again and said, l  “Oh that we had meat to eat! 5 m  We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. 6But now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at.”

7Now n  the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance like that of bdellium. 8 o  The people went about and gathered it and ground it in handmills or beat it in mortars and boiled it in pots and made cakes of it. p  And the taste of it was like the taste of cakes baked with oil. 9 q  When the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell with it.
