Numbers 16:37

Context
16:37 “Tell 1  Eleazar son of Aaron the priest to pick up 2  the censers out of the flame, for they are holy, and then scatter the coals of fire 3  at a distance.

1 tn Heb “say to.”

2 tn The verb is the jussive with a vav (ו) coming after the imperative; it may be subordinated to form a purpose clause (“that he may pick up”) or the object of the imperative.

3 tn The Hebrew text just has “fire,” but it would be hard to conceive of this action apart from the idea of coals of fire.
