    King James Bible - Exodus 16:18

    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.

    World English Bible

    When they measured it with an omer, he who gathered much had nothing
    over, and he who gathered little had no lack. They gathered every man according to his eating.

    Douay-Rheims - Exodus 16:18

    And they measured by the measure of a gomor: neither had he more that had gathered more: nor did he find less that had provided less: but every one had gathered, according to what they were able to eat.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And when they measured 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.

    Original Hebrew

    2Co 8:14,15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:18

    Y lo medían por gomer, y no sobraba al que había recogido mucho, ni faltaba al que había recogido poco; cada uno recogió conforme a lo que había de comer.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Exodus 16:18

    Verse 18. He that gathered much had nothing
    over] Because his gathering was in proportion to the number of persons for whom he had to provide. And some having fewer, others more in family, and the gathering being in proportion to the persons who were to eat of it, therefore he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack.

    Probably every man gathered as much as he could; and then when brought home and measured by an omer, if he had a surplus, it went to supply the wants of some other family that had not been able to collect a sufficiency, the family being large, and the time in which the manna might be gathered, before the heat of the day, not being sufficient to collect enough for so numerous a household, several of whom might be so confined as not to be able to collect for themselves. Thus there was an equality, and in this light the words of St. Paul, 2 Cor. viii. 15, lead us to view the passage.

    Here the 36th verse should come in: Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.


    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.
