Numbers 7:2

Context
7:2 Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of their clans, 1  made an offering. They were the leaders of the tribes; they were the ones who had been supervising 2  the numbering.

1 tn Heb “the house of their fathers.”

2 tn The form is the Qal active participle from the verb “to stand” (עָמַד, ’amad). The form describes these leaders as “the ones standing over [the ones numbered].” The expression, along with the clear indication of the first census in chapter 1, shows that this was a supervisory capacity.
