24 And the o, murmured against Moses, ...R. at shall we drink? 25 And he cried unto the Lor D ; 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 to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his com: o 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 Lori that healeth thee. 27 | And they came to Elim, where overe twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees : and they encamped there by the waters. CHAP. XVI. 2 The Israelites murmur for want of ... bread. 11 Quails are sent, 14 and manna. Ao they took their journey, from Elim, and 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 §e 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, Woo. 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 o; in ; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily. 6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all 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 sce the glory of the Lord ; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LoRD : And what are we, that ye 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,

Quails and manna are sent.

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. 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. 11 || And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, o have heard the murmurings 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. 13 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. 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 mail: na: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lorp hath given you to eat. 16 T 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 Koes said, Let no man leave of it till the morning. 20 Notwithstanding, they hearkenedo unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank : and Šiš. was wroth with them. 21 And they gathered it every morning; every man according to his ...i. and when the sun waxed hot, it melt 22 And it came to pass, that on th: sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man : all the rulers of the congregation came told Moses. - 33 Andhe said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To-morro" is the rest of the holy sabbath, uno the Lond : bake that which ye will bake so day, and seethe that ye will seeth: ". that which remaineth over, lay up for?" to be kept until the morning; 24 And they laid it up till the mo"

o v1.1, xvi II. ..fmalek is overcome. 67 kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst 2 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 smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before theethere upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us, or not? 8 || Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose | us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek; to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. 10. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur, went up to the top of the hill. 11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel vailed : and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, . he sat thereon: and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13. And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 T And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it JEHOVAH-missi: 16 For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

3 And her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom ; (for he said, 1 have been an alien in a strange land % 4 And the name of the other was Eliezer; (for the God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh:) 5 And Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount of God : 6 And he said unto Moses, I thy fatherin-law Jethroam come unto thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her. 7 of And Moses went out to meet his father-in-law, and did obeisance, and kissed him: and they asked each other of their welfare: and they came into the tent. 8 And Moses told his father-in-law all that the Lord had done unto Pharaoh, and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, and all the travail that had come upon them by the way, and how the Lord delivered en). 9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the Lord had done to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hando the Egyptians. 10 And Jethro said, Blessed bethe Lord, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. 11 Now I know that the Lok D is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt $.” he 7: as above them. 12 And Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, took a burnt-offering and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel to eat bread with Moses' fatherin-law before God. 13 || And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by §. from the morning unto the evening. ... 14 And when Moses' father-in-law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people?
