And Moses said to them, (C)“This is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is the thing which the Lord has commanded: ‘Let every man gather it (D)according to each one’s need, one (E)omer for each person, according to the number of persons; let every man take for those who are in his tent.’ ”

Moses said to them, “It is the bread(C) the Lord has given you to eat. 16 This is what the Lord has commanded: ‘Everyone is to gather as much as they need. Take an omer[a](D) for each person you have in your tent.’”
