EX 16:31-36 Omer of Manna Law

Scripture

The house of Israel called its name “Manna”, and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. 32 Moses said, “This is the thing which Yahweh has commanded, ‘Let an omer-full of it be kept throughout your generations, that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.’ ” 33 Moses said to Aaron, “Take a pot, and put an omer-full of manna in it, and lay it up before Yahweh, to be kept throughout your generations.” 34 As Yahweh commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. 35 The children of Israel ate the manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land. They ate the manna until they came to the borders of the land of Canaan. 36 Now an omer is one tenth of an ephah.

This interesting fact is referring to Joshua's time as the leader of Israel. YHWH commissioned Joshua to lead Israel into the Promised Land after the death of Moses.

On the fifteenth day of the first month, the first day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread, Israel ate the fruit of the land of Canaan; and on that day manna ceased.
