First Reading: Ex. 16:13-35

 13And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.

 14And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

 15And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

 16This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents.

 17And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

 18And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

 19And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

 20Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

 21And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

 22And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.

 23And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

 24And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.

 25And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day ye shall not find it in the field.

 26Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

 27And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

 28And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

 29See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

 30So the people rested on the seventh day.

 31And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.

 32And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

 33And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the LORD, to be kept for your generations.

 34As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

 35And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan.

Second Reading: Heb. 10:19-39

 19Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,

 20By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

 21And having an high priest over the house of God;

 22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

 23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)

 24And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:

 25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

 26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

 27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

 28He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

 29Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?

 30For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

 32But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

 33Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

 34For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

 35Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

 36For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.

 37For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

 38Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

 39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
