Exodus 16:29-30

Context
16:29 See, because the Lord has given you the Sabbath, that is why 1  he is giving you food for two days on the sixth day. Each of you stay where you are; 2  let no one 3  go out of his place on the seventh day.” 16:30 So the people rested on the seventh day.

1 sn Noting the rabbinic teaching that the giving of the Sabbath was a sign of God’s love – it was accomplished through the double portion on the sixth day – B. Jacob says, “God made no request unless He provided the means for its execution” (Exodus, 461).

2 tn Heb “remain, a man where he is.”

3 tn Or “Let not anyone go” (see GKC 445 §138.d).
