Numbers 16:3

Context
16:3 And they assembled against Moses and Aaron, saying to them, “You take too much upon yourselves, 1  seeing that the whole community is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then do you exalt yourselves above the community of the Lord?”

Numbers 20:4

Context
20:4 Why 2  have you brought up the Lord’s community into this wilderness? So that 3  we and our cattle should die here?

1 tn The meaning of רַב־לָכֶם (rab-lakhem) is something like “you have assumed far too much authority.” It simply means “much to you,” perhaps “you have gone to far,” or “you are overreaching yourselves” (M. Noth, Numbers [OTL], 123). He is objecting to the exclusiveness of the system that Moses has been introducing.

2 tn Heb “and why….” The conjunction seems to be recording another thing that the people said in their complaint against Moses.

3 tn The clause uses the infinitive construct with the lamed (ל) preposition. The clause would be a result clause in this sentence: “Why have you brought us here…with the result that we will all die?”
