1 And they tooke their iourney from Elim, and all the Congregation of the children of Israel came vnto the wildernesse of Sin, which is betweene Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second moneth after their departing out of the land of Egypt.
3 And the children of Israel saide vnto them, Would to God wee had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when wee sate by the flesh pots, and when we did eate bread to the full: for ye haue brought vs forth into this wildernesse, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.
4 ¶ Then said the Lord vnto Moses, Behold, I will raine bread from heauen for you: and the people shall goe out, and gather a certaine rate euery day, that I may proue them, whether they will walke in my Law, or no.
8 And Moses said, This shalbe when the Lord shal giue you in the euening flesh to eate, and in the morning bread to the full: for that the Lord heareth your murmurings which ye murmure against him; and what are wee? your murmurings are not against vs, but against the Lord.
12 I haue heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: Speake vnto them, saying, At euen ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shalbe filled with bread: and ye shal know that I am the Lord your God.
16 ¶ This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded: gather of it euery man according to his eating: an Omer for euery man, according to the number of your persons, take yee euery man for them which are in his tents.
23 And he said vnto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy Sabbath vnto the Lord: bake that which you will bake, to day, and seethe that ye will seethe, and that which remaineth ouer, lay vp for you to be kept vntill the morning.
29 See, for that the Lord hath giuen you the Sabbath, therefore hee giueth you on the sixt day the bread of two dayes: abide yee euery man in his place: let no man goe out of his place on the seuenth day.
32 ¶ And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commandeth: Fill an Omer of it to bee kept for your generations, that they may see the bread wherewith I haue fed you in the wildernesse, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

How much is an omer and how much is an ephah?

This whole chapter reminds me of Matthew 6:34 "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." God didn't want them to worry about anything for He is in control; but unfortunately, Israel didn't listen to God. Likewise, we also, sometime do the same thing. We murmur, we complain. We have to put our trust in God for He knows what is going to happen tomorrow.

Even our self we are just like Israelites. We easily forget good things which God do to us we remember God only if we are in trouble but immediately after we are out of trouble. We turn to our back to God. Fortunate we have a long hearted God who tolerates us always. Our Lovely, God but we can't stand alone because Satan wants to win us. So let's pray God to help us.

The reading is showing how God is proving himself to the children of Isreal. That he has delivered them out of bondage an blessing them with manna from heaven and all he is asking them is to praise an worship him for what he has done and is getting ready to all they had to do was be obedient an live by the laws which he commamded them to do along with trusting in him for their every need.

Just to let my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, quickly ask for forgiveness to our True God , and our brothers and sisters in Christ , and rebuke and stop murmuring among each other, because that is what we do verry often. Kill the murmmur immediately, love u, God bless u

This chapter shows how sinful our nature really is. After such a great deliverance by God, one would think that the Jews would have been thankful to Him the rest of their lives. But unfortunately after such a short period they started to murmur against Moses and God Himself.
So it is with us believers - after experiencing God's work of salvation thru Jesus Christ, we become guilty of spiritual amnesia, complain against the God who saved us and at times live in disobedience to Him Who brought us out of the pit of sin.
