3 And the children of Ifrael faid unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we fat 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 affembly with hunger.

5 And it fhall come to pafs, that on the fixth day, they fhall prepare that which they bring in; and it fhall be twice as much as they gather daily.
