10 Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, all at the entrances of their tents. Then the LORD became very angry, and Moses was displeased. 11 So Moses said to the LORD, ''Why have you treated your servant so badly? Why have I not found favour in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people on me? 12 Did I conceive all this people? Did I give birth to them, that you should say to me, ""Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries a sucking child"", to the land that you promised on oath to their ancestors? 13 Where am I to get meat to give to all this people? For they come weeping to me and say, ""Give us meat to eat!"" 14 I am not able to carry all this people alone, for they are too heavy for me. 15 If this is the way you are going to treat me, put me to death at once-if I have found favour in your sight-and do not let me see my misery.''16 So the LORD said to Moses, ''Gather for me seventy of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them; bring them to the tent of meeting, and have them take their place there with you.
24 So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD; and he gathered seventy elders of the people, and placed them all around the tent. 25 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders; and when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied. But they did not do so again.
26 Two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the spirit rested on them; they were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. 27 And a young man ran and told Moses, ''Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.'' 28 And Joshua son of Nun, the assistant of Moses, one of his chosen men, said, ''My lord Moses, stop them!'' 29 But Moses said to him, ''Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD''s people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit on them!''
|7||The law of the LORD is perfect|
|and revives the soul; *|
|the testimony of the LORD is sure|
|and gives wisdom to the innocent.|
|8||The statutes of the LORD are just|
|and rejoice the heart; *|
|the commandment of the LORD is clear|
|and gives light to the eyes.|
|9||The fear of the LORD is clean|
|and endures for ever; *|
|the judgments of the LORD are true|
|and righteous altogether.|
|10||More to be desired are they than gold,|
|more than much fine gold, *|
|sweeter far than honey,|
|than honey in the comb.|
|11||By them also is your servant enlightened, *|
|and in keeping them there is great reward.|
|12||Who can tell how often he offends? *|
|cleanse me from my secret faults.|
|13||Above all, keep your servant from presumptuous sins;|
|let them not get dominion over me; *|
|then shall I be whole and sound,|
|and innocent of a great offense.|
|14||Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my|
|heart be acceptable in your sight, *|
|O LORD, my strength and my redeemer.|
