View In My Bible
19 You will eat, not one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days, 20 {but for a whole month},a until it comes out from your nose and becomes as nausea to you; because you have rejected Yahweh, who [is] in your midst, and you wept before {his presence},b saying, "Why did we ever leave Egypt?" '" 21 But Moses said, "[There are] six hundred thousand on foot, among whom I [am] in the midst, and you yourself said, 'I will give meat to them, and they will eat for a whole month.' 22 Should flocks and cattle be slaughtered for them? Should all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to be enough for them?" 23 And Yahweh said to Moses, "{Is Yahweh's power limited}?c Now you will see if my word will happen or not." 24 So Moses went out, and he spoke the words of Yahweh to the people, and he gathered [together] seventy men from the elders of the people, and he {made them stand}d all around the tent. 25 Then Yahweh went down in the cloud and spoke to him, and he took away the spirit that [was] on him, and he {put it}e on the seventy elders. And as soon as the spirit was resting on them they prophesied, but they did not do it again. 26 But two men were left in the camp; the name of one [was] Eldad, and the name of the second [was] Medad, and the spirit rested on them; they were among those who were written [down], but they did not go out to the tent, so they prophesied in the camp. 27 So a boyf ran and told Moses and said, "Eldad and Medad [are] prophesying in the camp." 28 And Joshua son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from time of his youth, answered, "Moses, my lord, stop them." 29 But Moses said to him, "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that heg give all Yahweh's people prophets, that Yahweh put his spirit on them!"
