Numbers 16:38

Context
16:38 As for the censers of these men who sinned at the cost of their lives, 1  they must be made 2  into hammered sheets for covering the altar, because they presented them before the Lord and sanctified them. They will become a sign to the Israelites.”

1 tn The expression is “in/by/against their life.” That they sinned against their life means that they brought ruin to themselves.

2 tn The form is the perfect tense with vav (ו) consecutive. But there is no expressed subject for “and they shall make them,” and so it may be treated as a passive (“they shall [must] be made”).
