Numbers 27:18

Context

27:18 The Lord replied 1  to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is such a spirit, 2  and lay your hand on him; 3 

1 tn Or “said.”

2 sn The word “spirit” probably refers to the Holy Spirit, in which case it would be rendered “in whom is the Spirit.” This would likely be a permanent endowment for Joshua. But it is also possible to take it to refer to a proper spirit to do all the things required of such a leader (which ultimately is a gift from the Spirit of God). The Hebrew text simply says “in whom is a spirit.”

3 sn This symbolic act would indicate the transfer of leadership to Joshua.
