18 They willfully put God to the test(A)
    by demanding the food they craved.(B)
19 They spoke against God;(C)
    they said, “Can God really
    spread a table in the wilderness?
20 True, he struck the rock,
    and water gushed out,(D)
    streams flowed abundantly,
but can he also give us bread?
    Can he supply meat(E) for his people?”
21 When the Lord heard them, he was furious;
    his fire broke out(F) against Jacob,
    and his wrath rose against Israel,
22 for they did not believe in God
    or trust(G) in his deliverance.
23 Yet he gave a command to the skies above
    and opened the doors of the heavens;(H)
24 he rained down manna(I) for the people to eat,
    he gave them the grain of heaven.
25 Human beings ate the bread of angels;
    he sent them all the food they could eat.
26 He let loose the east wind(J) from the heavens
    and by his power made the south wind blow.
27 He rained meat down on them like dust,
    birds(K) like sand on the seashore.
28 He made them come down inside their camp,
    all around their tents.
