“When the dew fell in the morning” (Num.)
“The nation went out and gathered” (Ex.)
“The nation wondered, looking to gather (Num. 11)

For the righteous, the Manna fell by their door. For the average, it fell nearby and they would collect it. For the wicked, they had to scavage to find their food.

Yoma Chapter 8
