 11:32
11:32 The people went about all that day, all night, and the entire next day, and gathered quail. Even those who got the least had gathered ten chomers. [The people] spread them out around the camp.
Vayakam ha'am kol-hayom hahu vechol-halaylah vechol yom hamacharat vaya'asfu et-haslav hamam'it asaf asarah chomarim vayishtechu lahem shatoach svivot hamachaneh.



Commentary:

chomers
  See Leviticus 27:16. Kor in Greek (Septuagint. Cf. Targum Yonathan). Since a chomer is 30 sa'ah, each one had ten sa'ah per day (Chizzkuni). The ten chomers was around 80 cubic feet, or around 1000 pounds of meat.
