Best Answer

The English word manna (as in manna from Heaven) comes originally from Hebrew man, meaning a fluid exuded from a tamarisk tree; it came to mean spiritual nourishment because the word was used in The Bible for a food substance miraculously provided to the Children of Israel when wandering in the wilderness.
