Numbers 14:10

Context

14:10 However, the whole community threatened to stone them. 1  But 2  the glory 3  of the Lord appeared to all the Israelites at the tent 4  of meeting.

1 tn Heb “said to stone them with stones.” The verb and the object are not from the same root, but the combination nonetheless forms an emphasis equal to the cognate accusative.

2 tn The vav (ו) on the noun “glory” indicates a strong contrast, one that interrupts their threatened attack.

3 sn The glory of the Lord refers to the reality of the Lord’s presence in a manifestation of his power and splendor. It showed to all that God was a living God. The appearance of the glory indicated blessing for the obedient, but disaster for the disobedient.

4 tc The Greek, Syriac, and Tg. Ps.-J. have “in the cloud over the tent.”
