Numbers 31:3

Context

31:3 So Moses spoke to the people: “Arm 1  men from among you for the war, to attack the Midianites and to execute 2  the Lord’s vengeance on Midian.

1 tn The Niphal imperative, literally “arm yourselves,” is the call to mobilize the nation for war. It is followed by the jussive, “and they will be,” which would then be subordinated to say “that they may be.” The versions changed the verb to a Hiphil, but that is unnecessary: “arm some of yourselves.”

2 tn Heb “give.”
