Verses 10-12

The Law prescribed that only members of the covenant community could eat the Passover. It was a memorial to God’s redemption of Israel out of Egyptian slavery in the Exodus. It symbolized God’s deliverance of His people from the tyranny of sin (cf. Exodus 12:43-51).

In the Feast of Unleavened Bread that followed the Passover, the people were able to use the grain of the land to make bread (Joshua 5:11). God now provided for His people’s need for daily bread by giving them the produce of the land rather than manna, which now ceased (cf. Exodus 16:35).

"We are prone to look upon our common mercies as matters of course, and God sometimes withdraws them to teach us our dependence more effectually." [Note: Bush, p. 60.]

Sometimes obeying God makes us vulnerable to the attacks of our spiritual enemies. Nevertheless God will protect those who trust and obey Him in these situations.
