John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night,.... As it usually, and even constantly did:

the manna fell upon it; as constantly, and had thereby a clean place to fall on; and then another dew fell upon that, which kept it the cleaner still, and from any vermin creeping upon it; see Exodus 16:14; so careful was the Lord of this their provision, and so constantly every morning were they supplied with it: and which fell in the night when they were asleep, and at rest, and without any labour of theirs; and was ready to their hands when they arose, and had nothing to do but gather it; and yet were so ungrateful as to make light of it, and despise it.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

And then the dew fell again upon it and covered it, as we see Exodus 16:13,14; so the manna lay hid as it were between two beds of dew. Hence the phrase of hidden manna Revelation 2:17.
