13 In the evening quails came up and covered the camp; and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp.14When the layer of dew lifted, there on the surface of the wilderness was a fine flaky substance, as fine as frost on the ground.15When the Israelites saw it, they said to one another, What is it? For they did not know what it was. Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat.16This is what the Lord has commanded: Gather as much of it as each of you needs, an omer to a person according to the number of persons, all providing for those in their own tents. 17The Israelites did so, some gathering more, some less.18But when they measured it with an omer, those who gathered much had nothing over, and those who gathered little had no shortage; they gathered as much as each of them needed.19And Moses said to them, Let no one leave any of it over until morning.20But they did not listen to Moses; some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and became foul. And Moses was angry with them.21Morning by morning they gathered it, as much as each needed; but when the sun grew hot, it melted.
The Parable of the Rich Fool
13 Someone in the crowd said to him, Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.14But he said to him, Friend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?15And he said to them, Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for ones life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.16Then he told them a parable: The land of a rich man produced abundantly.17And he thought to himself, What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?18Then he said, I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.19And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.20But God said to him, You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?21So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich towards God.
