but now we have lost our appetite. There is nothing at all except this manna to look at.” Bible other translations

“appetite.” The Hebrew word is nephesh (#05315 נֶפֶשׁ), often translated “soul.” Here it is being used for a working of the soul inside mankind, our “appetite.” [For more on nephesh, see Appendix 7, “Usages of ‘Soul’”].
