How, then, did the Lord prove the people (verse 4) whether they would keep His law, or not?

Answer

Over the keeping of the Sabbath.
NOTE-Thus we see that the Sabbath commandment was a part of God's law before this law was
spoken from Sinai; for this incident occurred in the wilderness of Sin, before the children of Israel came to
Sinai, where the law was given. Both the Sabbath and the law existed from creation.
