SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:14 Y cuando el rocío cesó de descender, he aquí sobre la faz del desierto una cosa menuda, redonda, menuda como una helada sobre la tierra.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 16:14 Verse 14. Behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing] It appears that this small round thing fell with the dew, or rather the dew fell first, and this substance fell on it. The dew might have been intended to cool the ground, that the manna on its fall might not be dissolved; for we find from Exodus xvi. 21, that the heat of the sun melted it. The ground therefore being sufficiently cooled by the dew, the manna lay unmelted long enough for the Israelites to collect a sufficient quantity for their dally use.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-21 - At evening the quails came up, and the people caught with ease as man as they needed. The manna came down in dew. They called it "Manna Manhu," which means, "What is this?" "It is a portion; it is that whic our God has allotted us, and we will take it, and be thankful." It wa pleasant food; it was wholesome food. The manna was rained from heaven it appeared, when the dew was gone, as a small round thing, as small a the hoar frost, like coriander seed, in colour like pearls. The mann fell only six days in the week, and in double quantity on the sixt day; it bred worms and became offensive if kept more than one day excepting on the sabbath. The people had never seen it before. It coul be ground in a mill, or beaten in a mortar, and was then made int cakes and baked. It continued the forty years the Israelites were in the wilderness, wherever they went, and ceased when they arrived i Canaan. All this shows how different it was from any thing foun before, or found now. They were to gather the manna every morning. We are hereby taught, 1. To be prudent and diligent in providing food for ourselves and our households; with quietness working, and eating ou own bread, not the bread of idleness or deceit. God's bounty leave room for man's duty; it did so even when manna was rained; they mus not eat till they have gathered. 2. To be content with enough. Thos that have most, have for themselves but food and raiment; those tha have least, generally have these; so that he who gathers much ha nothing over, and he who gathers little has no lack. There is not suc a disproportion between one and another in the enjoyment of the thing of this life, as in the mere possession of them. 3. To depend upo Providence: let them sleep quietly, though they have no bread in their tents, nor in all their camp, trusting that God, with the followin day, would bring them in their daily bread. It was surer and safer i God's storehouse than their own, and would come thence sweeter an fresher. See here the folly of hoarding. The manna laid up by some, wh thought themselves wiser, and better managers, than their neighbours and who would provide lest it should fail next day, bred worms, an became good for nothing. That will prove to be most wasted, which i covetously and distrustfully spared. Such riches are corrupted, Ja 5:2, 3. The same wisdom, power, and goodness that brought food dail from above for the Israelites in the wilderness, brings food yearly ou of the earth in the constant course of nature, and gives us all thing richly to enjoy.
