John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

The people asked, and he brought quails,.... The Targum is,

"they asked flesh, and he brought quails,'

or pheasants; some render it partridges, others locusts: that is, the people of Israel asked flesh of the Lord, and he gave them quails; which he did twice, first at the same time the manna was first given, Exodus 16:13, and some years after that a second time, when the wrath of God came upon them and slew them while their meat was in their mouths, Numbers 11:31, it is the first time that is here referred to, since it is mentioned among the benefits and blessings bestowed upon them; this was typical of the spiritual meat believers eat of, even the flesh of Christ, whose flesh is meat indeed. The quail was a fat and fleshy bird, delicious food, sent from heaven in the evening; so Christ came from heaven in the evening of the world, and gave his flesh for the life of his people, and on which they live by faith.

And satisfied them with the bread of heaven: the manna, called the corn of heaven; a type of Christ the hidden manna, who is soul satisfying food to believers; See Gill on Psalm 78:24; see Gill on Psalm 78:25.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

Quails — He speaks of the first giving of quails, Exodus 16:13, which God gave them as a refreshment, notwithstanding their sin in desiring them, which he graciously pardoned.

Bread — With manna which came out of the air, commonly called heaven.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Psalms 105:40 [The people] asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

Ver. 40. The people asked] Not as suppliants, but as malcontents, and therefore had what they asked, with a vengeance.

And satisfied them with the bread of heaven] Never was any prince in his greatest state so served as these miscreants were; and yet we fare better than they in God’s holy ordinances.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

He speaks of the first giving of quails, Exodus 16:13, which God gave them as a refreshment, notwithstanding their sin in desiring them, which he graciously pardoned; and not of that second giving of quails, which God gave them in judgment, Num 11, and therefore would not have been numbered here amongst God’s favours vouchsafed to them. With the bread of heaven; with manna which came out of the air, which is commonly called heaven.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

40. Quails—This would seem, by the order of events named, to refer to the first supply of quails, Exodus 16:12-13. For second supply, see on Psalms 78:26.

Bread of heaven—Same as “angels’ food,” “corn of heaven,” manna. Psalms 78:24-25, where see note.
