Exodus 16:22-23King James Version (KJV)
22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

Exodus 16:22-23Darby Translation (DARBY)
22 And it came to pass on the sixth day, that they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one; and all the princes of the assembly came and told Moses.
23 And he said to them, This is what Jehovah has said: To-morrow is the rest, the holy sabbath, of Jehovah: bake what ye will bake, and cook what ye will cook; and lay up for yourselves all that remains over, to be kept for the morning.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

22 The reason they gathered twice as much was because they would not gather on the Sabbath. God would not have provided food for them on the Sabbath because they were not to collect on it but they could have either collected more the day before or not ate on the Sabbath.

23 God would allow the manna to be saved for tomorrow for the Sabbath but any other day He let the maggots get to it. God wants to provide for us but also wants us to rest as well.
