Treasury of Scripture

And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.











Verse 27. - And there ran a young man. Literally, "the young man," - הַנַּעַר; νεανἱσκος, Septuagint, - by which some understand the young men of the camp collectively, but this is doubtful in grammar and unsatisfactory in sense. If this book was compiled from previous records, of which there are many apparent traces, we may suppose that the name of this young man was there given, but here for some reason omitted.
