מָן with suffix מַנְּךָ (in some copies without Dag.) Nehemiah 9:20, manna Arabica, a sweet gum like honey, which, in Arabia, and other Oriental regions, exudes from the leaves of several trees and shrubs, especially those of the tamarisk kind; this takes place mostly in July and August, before sunrise. It is now  more than ten years since some British naturalists have proved that certain insects, similar to the genus cimex, aid in producing the manna (see Hardwicke, in Asiatic Researches, xiv. p. 182, seq. Bombay Transactions, i. 251). This has since been more exactly confirmed by Ehrenberg, who informed me that the manna flows out after the leaves are punctured by the insects. Comp. Niebuhr’s Descr. of Arabia, p. 145; J. E. Fabri Historia Mannæ, in Fabri et Reiskii Opuscc., Med. Arab. p. 121. Exodus 16:31, seq.; Numbers 11:6. (Arab. هَنُّ id., pr. portion, gift, هن السما, from the root מָנַן. [It has been thought that] allusion is made to another etymology, Exodus 16:15, 31 Exodus 16:31 comp. Ch. מָן.) [No one who simply credits the inspired history of the giving of the manna can doubt that it was something miraculously given to the Israelites, and that it differed in its nature from any thing now known.]
