1 tn Heb “he [i.e., his people] asked.” The singular form should probably be emended to a plural שָׁאֲלוּ (sha’alu, “they asked”), the vav (ו) having fallen off by haplography (note the vav at the beginning of the following form).
2 tn Or “bread of heaven.” The reference is to manna (see Exod 16:4, 13-15).
