{Exodus 16:31} And the house 1004 of Israel 3478 called 7121 z8799 x853 the name 8034 thereof Manna: 4478 and it x1931 [was] like coriander 1407 seed, 2233 white; 3836 and the taste 2940 of it [was] like wafers 6838 [made] with honey. 1706
called the name:
"And when the childrenª of Israelª sawª° [it], they saidª° oneª to¹ another,ª It¹ [is] manna:ª for¹ they wistª° not¹ what¹ it¹ [was]. And Mosesª saidª° unto¹ them, This¹ [is] the breadª which¹ the LORDª hath givenª° you to eat.ª" {Exd 16:15} In consequence of the term manna having been given to a drug which is now much used in England, many persons have ignorantly supposed it to be the same sort of thing as that miraculously sent for the sustenance of the children of Israel in the wilderness. The manna of commerce comes from Calabria and Sicily, where it oozes out of a kind of ash tree, from the end of June to the end of July, and is a thick, clammy, sweet juice, partly drawn from the tree by the rays of the sun, partly by the puncture of insects, and partly by artificial means. The European manna is not so good as the Oriental, which is gathered in Syria, Arabia, and Persia, from the Oriental oak, and from a shrub which is called in Persia teranjabin.
and it was:
"But now¹ our soulª [is] dried away:ª [there is] nothing¹ at all,¹ besideª¹ this manna,ª [before] our eyes.ª ... And the mannaª [was] as corianderª seed,ª and the colourª thereof as the colourª of bdellium.ª" {Num 11:6-7} + "As the apple treeª among the treesª of the wood,ª so¹ [is] my belovedª among¹ the sons.ª I sat²° down¹ under his shadowª with great delight,ª° and his fruitª [was] sweetª to my taste.ª" {Sgs 2:3}
