Exodus 16:19-30New Life Version (NLV)

19 Moses said to them, “Let no one save any of it until morning.” 20 But they did not listen to Moses. Some left part of it until morning. And worms grew in it and it became bad to eat. So Moses was angry with them. 21 Morning after morning they gathered it, every man as much as he could eat. But when the sun became hot, it would melt.

22 On the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two jars for each person. When all the leaders of the people came and told Moses, 23 he said to them, “This is what the Lord said: ‘Tomorrow is a time of rest, a holy Day of Rest to the Lord. Make ready the food you will need for today. Then put aside what is left to be kept until morning.’” 24 So they put it aside until morning, as Moses told them. And it did not become bad to eat, and there were no worms in it. 25 Moses said, “Eat it today. For today is a Day of Rest to the Lord. Today you will not find it in the field. 26 Six days you will gather it. But on the seventh day, the Day of Rest, there will be none.” 27 On the seventh day some of the people went out to gather it. But they found none. 28 Then the Lord said to Moses, “How much longer will you go against My Word and My Laws? 29 See, the Lord has given you the Day of Rest. This is why He gives you bread for two days on the sixth day. Every man should stay home and not leave his place on the seventh day.” 30 So the people rested on the seventh day.
