Numbers 16:14

Context
NETBible

Moreover, 1  you have not brought us into a land that flows with milk and honey, nor given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Do you think you can blind 2  these men? We will not come up.”

XREF

Ex 3:8,17; Le 20:24; Nu 36:8-10

NET © Notes

tn Here אַף (’af) has the sense of “in addition.” It is not a common use.

tn Heb “will you bore out the eyes of these men?” The question is “Will you continue to mislead them?” (or “hoodwink” them). In Deut 16:19 it is used for taking a bribe; something like that kind of deception is intended here. They are simply stating that Moses is a deceiver who is misleading the people with false promises.
