       * Ex 16:3 Ps 17:14 Php 3:19
    - the cucumbers.
      In Hebrew, {kishshuim,} in Arabic, {kiththa,} Chaldee,
      {keta,} and Syriac, {kati,} a species of cucumber peculiar to
      Egypt, smooth, of a longish cylindrical shape, and about a
      foot long.  Prosper Alpinus says that it differs from the
      common sort by its size, color, and softness; that its
      leaves are smaller, whiter, softer, and rounder; its fruit
      larger, greener, smoother, softer, sweeter, and more easy of
      digestion than ours.  Hasselquist describes it in the same
      manner; and adds, that it is very little watery, but firm
      like a melon, sweet and cool to the taste, but not so cold as
      the watermelon, which is meant by the {avutichim} of the
      text.

    VERSE 11 
     - Wherefore hast thou.
      The complaint and remonstrance of Moses in these verses serve
      at once to shew the deeply distressed state of his mind, and
      the degradation of the minds of the people.

       About a year before this, the people had been thus feasted for
      one day (Ex 16:13); but now such plenty was to be afforded
      them for a whole month, and they should use it so greedily,
      that at last they should entirely loathe the food for which
      they had so inordinately craved.
    
    
    VERSE 19
       * :19
    
    
    VERSE 20

    VERSE 21
        * Nu 1:46; 2:32 Ge 12:2 Ex 12:37; 38:26
       There is certainly a considerable measure of weakness and
      unbelief manifested in these complaints and questions of
      Moses; but his conduct appears at the same time so very
      simple, honest, and affectionate, that we cannot but admire
      it, while we wonder that he had not stronger confidence in
      that God, whose stupendous miracles he had so often witnessed
      in Egypt.
    
    
    VERSE 22
       * 2Ki 7:2 Mt 15:33 Mr 6:37; 8:4 Lu 1:18,34 Joh 6:6,7,9
    
    
    VERSE 23 
     - Is the Lord's.
      That is, "Is the power of the Lord diminished?"  That power
      which has been so signally displayed on your behalf, and which
      is as unchangeable as it is unlimited.
    
       * Ge 18:14 Ps 78:41 Isa 50:2; 59:1 Mic 2:7 Mt 19:26 Lu 1:37
    - thou shalt.
       * Nu 23:19 2Ki 7:2,17-19 Jer 44:28,29 Eze 12:25; 24:14 Mt 24:35

    - took.  See on ver.
       * :17 2Ki 2:15 Jas 17 1:17
    - gave it.
      From this place, Origen and Theodoret take occasion to compare
      Moses to a lamp, at which seventy others were lighted, without
      any diminution of its lustre.
    
    - they prophesied.
      By prophesying here we are to understand, their performing
      those civil and sacred functions for which they were
      qualified; exhorting the people to quiet and peaceable
      submission, and to trust and confidence in the providence of
      God.

    - and brought.
       * Ex 16:13 Ps 78:26-29; 105:40
    - quails.
      That the word {selav} means the quail, we have already had
      occasion to observe; to which we subjoin the authority of Mr.
      Maundrell, who visited Naplosa, (the ancient Sichem,) where
      the Samaritans live.  Mr. Maundrell asked their chief priest
      what sort of animal he took the {selav} to be.  He answered,
      they were a sort of fowls; and, by the description Mr.
      Maundrell perceived he meant the same kind with our quails.
    
    - a day's journey.  Heb. the way of a day.  and as it were two
      cubits.
      That is, as the Vulgate renders, {Volabantque in aČre duobus
      cubitis altitudine super terram,} "and they flew in the air,
      at the height of two cubits above the ground."
    
    
    VERSE 32
