Numbers 27:19

Context
27:19 set him 1  before Eleazar the priest and before the whole community, and commission 2  him publicly. 3 

1 tn This could be translated “position him,” or “have him stand,” since it is the causative stem of the verb “to stand.”

2 tn The verb is the Piel perfect of צִוָּה (tsivvah, literally “to command”). The verb has a wide range of meanings, and so here in this context the idea of instructing gives way to a more general sense of commissioning for duty. The verb in sequence is equal to the imperfect of instruction.

3 tn Heb “in their eyes.”
