New International Version
When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor.
King James Bible
And 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.
Darby Bible Translation
And when the dew that lay [round it] was gone up, behold, on the face of the wilderness there was [something] fine, granular, fine as hoar-frost, on the ground.
World English Bible
When the dew that lay had gone, behold, on the surface of the wilderness was a small round thing, small as the frost on the ground.
Young's Literal Translation
and the lying of the dew goeth up, and lo, on the face of the wilderness a thin, bare thing, thin as hoar-frost on the earth.
Exodus 16:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing - It appears that this small round thing fell with the dew, or rather the dew fell first, and this substance fell on it. The dew might have been intended to cool the ground, that the manna on its fall might not be dissolved; for we find from Exodus 16:21, that the heat of the sun melted it. The ground therefore being sufficiently cooled by the dew, the manna lay unmelted long enough for the Israelites to collect a sufficient quantity for their dally use.

The people of Israel called the bread manna. It was white like coriander seed and tasted like wafers made with honey.
The manna was like coriander seed and looked like resin.
When the dew settled on the camp at night, the manna also came down.
In their hunger you gave them bread from heaven and in their thirst you brought them water from the rock; you told them to go in and take possession of the land you had sworn with uplifted hand to give them.
he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven.
