Deuteronomy 29:5-6 NASB
5 I have led you forty years in the wilderness; your clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandal has not worn out on your foot. 6 You have not eaten bread, nor have you drunk wine or strong drink, in order that you might know that I am the Lord your God.
But years back when they had complained about bread and meat God had given them Manna and Quail.
Exodus 16:4-5 NASB
4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My [b]instruction. 5 On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily.
Nehemiah 9:14-15 NASB
14“So You made known to them Your holy sabbath, And laid down for them commandments, statutes and law, Through Your servant Moses 15 “You provided bread from heaven for them for their hunger, You brought forth water from a rock for them for their thirst, And You told them to enter in order to possess The land which You [e]swore to give them.
Its clear from the above texts that they had bread from heaven so why then does Deuteronomy say they didn't eat bread?
