  • Moses and the Israelites sing a song praising Adonai. (15:1-21)
  • In the wilderness, God provides the grumbling Israelites with quails and manna. God instructs the Israelites to gather and prepare on the sixth day food needed for Shabbat. (15:22-16:36)
  • The people complain about the lack of water. Moses hits a rock with his rod and brings forth water. (17:1-7)
