CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Man did eat angels' food - לחם אבירים אכל איש lechem abbirim achal ish, "Man did eat the bread of the mighty ones;" or, each person ate, etc. They ate such bread as could only be expected at the tables of the rich and great, the best, the most delicate food. How little did this gross people know of the sublime excellence of that which they called light bread, and which they said their soul loathed; Numbers 21:5! It was a type of Jesus Christ for so says St. Paul: "They all ate the same spiritual meat, and drank the same spiritual drink," etc., 1 Corinthians 10:3, 1 Corinthians 10:4.

O, how thick a veil hangs over their gross and hardened hearts.

The Good Shepherd: a Farewell Sermon
The Israelites said to them, "If only we had died by the LORD's hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death."
I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.
Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them.
