{Exodus 16:13} And it came to pass, x1961 that at even 6153 the quails 7958 came up, 5927 z8799 and covered 3680 z8762 x853 the camp: 4264 and in the morning 1242 the dew 2919 lay 7902 x1961 round about 5439 the host. 4264
the quails:
The Latin selav, Chaldee selaiv, Syriac and Arabic selwa, is without doubt the quail, so the LXX render it ορτυγομητρα, a large kind of quail. Josephus, ορτυξ, Ethopic, ferferat, and Vulgate, coturnices, quails, with which agree Philo and the Rabbins. The quail is a bird of the gallinaceous kind, somewhat less than a pigeon, but larger than a sparrow. Hasselquist describes the quail of the larger kind as very much resembling the red partridge, but not larger than the turtle dove; found in Judea as well as in the deserts of Arabia PetrŠa and Egypt; and affording a most agreeable and delicate dish. "And there went forth¬ a wind¬ from the LORD,¬ and brought¬ quails¬ from the sea,¬ and let [them] fall¬ by the camp,¬ as it were a day's¬ journey¬ on this side,¬ and as it were a day's¬ journey¬ on the other side,¬ round about¬ the camp,¬ and as it were two cubits¬ [high] upon the face¬ of the earth.¬ ... And while the flesh¬ [was] yet between their teeth,¬ ere it was chewed,¬ the wrath¬ of the LORD¬ was kindled¬ against the people,¬ and the LORD¬ smote¬ the people¬ with a very¬ great¬ plague.¬" {Num 11:31-33} + "He rained¬ flesh¬ also upon them as dust,¬ and feathered¬ fowls¬ like as the sand¬ of the sea:¬ ... And he let [it] fall¬ in the midst¬ of their camp,¬ round about¬ their habitations.¬" {Psa 78:27-28} + "[The people] asked,¬ and he brought¬ quails,¬ and satisfied¬ them with the bread¬ of heaven.¬" {Psa 105:40}
the dew:
"And when the dew¬ fell¬ upon the camp¬ in the night,¬ the manna¬ fell¬ upon it." {Num 11:9}
