The gift of the quails to Israel was not repeated, but the manna continued to rain down for them every night. In sending this, God meant to train his people to obedience. Therefore he bade them gather each the same amount, about two quarts; and though some proved over-greedy and gathered much more, yet when they brought their load home to their tents, each found he had exactly the two quarts. So also, God bade them preserve none for the morrow; and when some disobeyed and sought to store the manna for the future, “it bred worms and stank.”(Exodus 16)
