But twomen had remained in the camp ; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the aotherMedad. And 3the Spiritrested upon them (now they were among those who had been registered, but had not gone out to the tent ), and they prophesied in the camp.
So a youngmanran and toldMoses and said, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp."
Then 4Joshua the son of Nun, the attendant of Moses from his youth, said, "5Moses, my lord, restrain them."
But Mosessaid to him, "Are you jealous for my sake? 6Would that all the LORD'Speople were prophets, that the LORD would put His Spirit upon them!"
