    Abstract:
    The common view in classical scholarship that the priestly story of the manna in Ex 16 has been moved from its original location in the priestly source has fallen out of favor in the last fifty years and was even explicitly rejected in an article by Ludwig Schmidt in this journal. This paper provides a new source division for Ex 16; lays out the evidence suggesting that the priestly story is indeed out of place; presents arguments for where it originally stood and why it has been moved; and offers reflections on how this analysis affects our view of the priestly materials and the compilation of the Pentateuch.
