1 tn Heb “carrying the sanctuary,” a metonymy of whole for parts, representing all the holy objects that were located in the sanctuary.

2 tn The verb is the third person plural form; without an expressed subject it is treated as a passive.

3 tn Heb “against their coming.”

4 tn The MT uses a word that actually means “assembler,” so these three tribes made up a strong rear force recognized as the assembler of all the tribes.
