Psalms 78:24-25

Context

78:24 He rained down manna for them to eat;

he gave them the grain of heaven. 1 

78:25 Man ate the food of the mighty ones. 2 

He sent them more than enough to eat. 3 

1 sn Manna was apparently shaped like a seed (Exod 16:31), perhaps explaining why it is here compared to grain.

2 sn Because of the reference to “heaven” in the preceding verse, it is likely that mighty ones refers here to the angels of heaven. The LXX translates “angels” here, as do a number of modern translations (NEB, NIV, NRSV).

3 tn Heb “provision he sent to them to satisfaction.”
