    Exodus 16:22-23King James Version (KJV)
    22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
    23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

    Exodus 16:22-23Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
    22 Soothly in the sixth day they gathered double meats, that is, two omers each man (And on the sixth day they gathered double the amount, that is, two omers for each person). Forsooth all the princes of the multitude came, and told (that) to Moses,
    23 which said to them, This it is that the Lord spake, The rest of the sabbath is hallowed to the Lord; do ye whatever thing (that) shall be wrought tomorrow, and seethe ye those things that shall be sodden; soothly whatever thing is residue, or left over, keep ye it till into the morrow. (and he said to them, This is what the Lord hath said, Tomorrow is the rest of the sabbath, that is holy, or is dedicated, to the Lord; so do ye today whatever needeth to be done, and boil ye those things that need to be boiled; and whatever is left over, keep ye it for tomorrow.)

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    22 The reason they gathered twice as much was because they would not gather on the Sabbath. God would not have provided food for them on the Sabbath because they were not to collect on it but they could have either collected more the day before or not ate on the Sabbath.

    23 God would allow the manna to be saved for tomorrow for the Sabbath but any other day He let the maggots get to it. God wants to provide for us but also wants us to rest as well.
