Whenever it came to rest, he said, "Return, LORD, to the countless thousands of Israel."
King James Bible
And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.
American Standard Version
And when it rested, he said, Return, O Jehovah, unto the ten thousands of the thousands of Israel.
Young's Literal Translation
And in its resting he saith, 'Return, O Jehovah, to the myriads, the thousands of Israel.'
Numbers 10:36 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Return, O Lord, unto the many thousands of Israel - These were the words spoken by Moses, at the moment the divisions halted in order to pitch their tents. In reference to this subject, and the history with which it is connected, the 68th Psalm seems to have been composed, though applied by David to the bringing the ark from Kirjath-jearim to Jerusalem. See the notes on Psalm 68 (note). Many thousands, literally the ten thousand thousands. Unless the ark went with them, and the cloud of the Divine glory with it, they could have neither direction nor safety; unless the ark rested with them, and the cloud of glory with it, they could have neither rest nor comfort. How necessary are the word of God and the Spirit of God for the direction, comfort, and defense of every genuine follower of Christ! Reader, pray to God that thou mayest have both with thee through all the wilderness, through all the changes and chances of this mortal life: if thou be guided by his counsel, thou shalt be at last received into his glory.
