16 Fear and Dread shall fall upon them, by the GreatKess of thine Arm they shall be as still as a Stone: till thy People pass over, O Lord, till the People pass over which thou hast purchased.

17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the Mountain of thine Inheritance, in the Place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in: in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy Hands have established.

Children of Israel went on and IV"' dry Land in the midst of the Sea.

20 And Miriam the Prophetess, the Sister of Aaron j took a Timbrel in her Hand; and all the Women went out after her, with Timbrels and with Dances.

21 And Miriam answered them, Sing Ye to the Lord, for he hath Triumphed gloriously j the Horse and his Rider hath he thrown into the Sea.

22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out into the Wilderness of Shur: and they went three Days in the Wilderness, and found No Water.

23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the Waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the Name of it was called Marah.

24 And the People Murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

25 And he Cried unto the Lord, and the Lord shewed him a Tree, which when he had cast into the Waters, the Waters were made Sweet: there he made for them a Statute, and an Ordinance, and there he Proved them,

26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken unto the Voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his Sight, and wilt give Ear to hi9 Commandments, and keep all his Statutes; I will put none of these Diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that Healeth thee.

27 And thev came to Elim, where were twelve Wells of Water, and threescore and ten Palm-trees: and they encamped there by the Waters.


1 The Israelites come to Sin; 2 murmur for want of Bread. it Quails are sent j 14 and Manna.

Ver. 1 AND they took their Journey from Elim, and MX all the Congregation of the Children of Israel came unto the Wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth Day of the second Month, after their departing out of the Land of Egypt.

2 And the whole Congregation of the Children of Israel Murmured against Moses and Aaron in the Wilderness.

3 And the Children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had Died by the Hand of the Lord in the Land of Egypt, when we sat by the Flesh-pots, and when we did eat bread to the Full: for ye have brought us forth into this Wilderness to Kill this whole Assembly with Hunger.

4 Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will Rain Bread from Heaven for you; and the People shall go out and gather a certain Rate every Day, that I may Prove them, whether they will Walk in' my Law, or No.

5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth Day, they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.

6 And Moses and Aaron said unto nil the Children of Israel, At Even, then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the Land of Egypt.

7 And in the Morning, then ye shall see the Glory of the Lord; for that he heareth your Murmurings against the Lord, and What Are we, tharye murmur against Us.

8 And Moses said, This shall be when the Lord shall give you in the Evening Flesh to eat, and in the Morning Bread to the Full; for that the Lord heareth your Murmurings which ye murmur against him: And what are we? your Murmurings are not against us, but Against the Lord.

9 And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the Congregation of the Children of Israel, Come near before the Lord; for he hath heard your Murmurings.

R 10 And

10 And it came to pass as Aaron spake unto the whole Congregation of the Children of Israel, that they looked toward the Wilderness, and behold, the Glory of the Lord Appeared in the Cloud.

I i And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

12 I have heard the Murmrings of the Children of Israel; speak unto them, saying, At Even ye shall eat Flesh, and in the Morning ye shall be filled with Bread : and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God.

I 3 And it came to pass, that at Even the Quails came up, and covered the Camp: and in the Morning the Dew lay round about the Host.

]z Then Jesus said unto then. Verily verily I say unto you, Moses gave you not that Bread ftom HeaVen; but my Father giveth you the True Bread ftom Heaven.

II For ihe Bread of God is Re which cometh down from Heaven, and giveth L.n r unto the World.

15 I Am the Breab of Life: he that coMiTK to me, shall nevei HunGer; and he that Delieveth on me shall nevet Thirst.

18 For I came down ftom Heaven, not to do my own Will, but the Will of him that sent me.

19 And this it the Father's Writ which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me. I should lole nothing, but should Raise it ip at the last Day.

48 I am that Bread of Life.

49 Yout Fathers did eat Manna in the Wilderness, and are

Jo This is the Bread which Cometh down from Heaven, that a Man may Eat thereof and not Die.

14 ( And when the Dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the Face of the Wilderness there lay a small round Thing, as small as the Hoar Frost on the Ground.

15 And when the Children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is Manna; for they wist not what it was. And Moses siid unto them, This is the Bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.

16 This is the Thing which the Lord hath commanded, Gather of it every Man according to his Eating: an Omer for every Man, according to the Number of your Persons, take ye every Man for them which are in his Tents.

17 And the Children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

18 And when they did mete it with an Omer, he that gathered much, had nothing over; and he that gathered little, had no Lack: they gathered every Man according to his Eating.

19 And Moses said, Let no Man leave of it till the Morning. 20 Not

so Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses, but some of them left of it until the Morning, and it bred Worms and stank : And Moses was wroth with them.

21 And they gathered it every Morning, every Man according to his Eating: and when the Sun waxed hot, it melted.

22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth Day, they gathered twice as much Bread, two Omers for one Man: and all the Rulers of the Congregation came and told Moses.

23 And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To-morrow is the Rest of the holy Sabbath unto the Lord: bake that which ye will bake To-day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over, lay up for you to be kept until the Morning.

24 And they laid it up till the Morning, as Moses bad: and it did not stink, neither was there any Worm therein.

25 And Moses said, Eat that To-day; for To-day is a Sabbath unto the Lord: To-day ye inall Not Fiiid it in the Field.

26 Six Days shall ye gather it, but on the Seventh Day which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be None.

27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the People on the seventh Day for to gather, and they found none.

28 And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my Commandments and my Laws?

29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the Sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the Sixth Day the Bread of two Days: abide ye 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 And the House of Israel called the Name thereof * Manna: and it was like Coriander-feed, white; and the Taste of it was like Wafers made with Honey.

32 And Moses said, This is the Thing which the Lord commanded, Fill an Omer of it to be kept for your GeNerations; that they may fee the Bread wherewith I have Fed you in the Wilderness, when I brought you forth from the Land of Egypt.

£ 5 33 And,

33 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a Pot, and put an Omer full of Manna therein, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your Generations.

34 As the Lord commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

35 And the Children of Israel did eat Manna Forty Years, until they came to a Land inhabited: they did eat Manna, until they came unto the Borders of the Land of Canaan.


i 77v People murmur for Water at Rephidim. 5 Moses sent to the Rock in Horeb. 8 Amalek is overcome.

Ver. 1 AND all the Congregation of the Children of IfXX rael journeyed from the Wilderness of Sin, after their Journeys, according to the Commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no WaTer for the People to drink.

2 Wherefore the People did chide with Moses, and said, Give us Water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide you with me? Wherefore do ye tempt the Lord?

3 And the People thirsted there for Water; and the People j Murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our Children, and our Cattle with Thirit?

4 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this People? they be almost ready to stone me.

5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the People, and take with thee of the Elders of Israel: and thy Rod wherewith thou smoteit the River, take in thine Hand, and go.
