Numbers 11:21

Context

11:21 Moses said, “The people around me 1  are 600,000 on foot; 2  but you say, ‘I will give them meat, 3  that they may eat 4  for a whole month.’

1 tn Heb “the people who I am in their midst,” i.e., among whom I am.

2 tn The Hebrew sentence stresses the number. The sentence begins “600,000….”

3 tn The word order places the object first here: “Meat I will give them.” This adds to the contrast between the number and the statement of the Lord.

4 tn The verb is the perfect tense with a vav (ו) consecutive, carrying the sequence from the preceding imperfect tense. However, this verb may be subordinated to the preceding to express a purpose clause.
