  1. 5.9 Gilgal: In Hebrew “Gilgal” sounds like “take away.”

10 Israel continued to camp at Gilgal in the desert near Jericho, and on the fourteenth day of the same month,[a] they celebrated Passover.

11-12 The next day, God stopped sending the Israelites manna[b] to eat each morning, and they started eating food grown in the land of Canaan. They ate roasted grain[c] and thin bread[d] made of the barley they had gathered from nearby fields.

Footnotes

  1. 5.10 the same month: See the note at 4.19.
  2. 5.11,12 manna: The special food that God provided for the Israelites while they were in the desert for forty years. It was about the size of a small seed, and it appeared on the ground during the night, except on the Sabbath. It was gathered early in the morning, ground up, and then baked or boiled (see Exodus 16.13-35; Numbers 11.4-9).
  3. 5.11,12 roasted grain: Roasted grain was made by cooking the grain in a dry pan or on a flat rock, or by holding a bunch of grain stalks over a fire.
  4. 5.11,12 thin bread: Bread made without yeast. Israelites were not supposed to eat bread made with yeast for the week following Passover. That week is called the Festival of Thin Bread (see Exodus 12.14-20; 13.3-7).
