Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 11:26-29

_ _ But there remained two of the men in the camp — They did not repair with the rest to the tabernacle, either from modesty in shrinking from the assumption of a public office, or being prevented by some ceremonial defilement. They, however, received the gifts of the Spirit as well as their brethren. And when Moses was urged to forbid their prophesying, his answer displayed a noble disinterestedness as well as zeal for the glory of God akin to that of our Lord (Mark 9:39).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 11:24-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 11:26

In the camp — Not going to the tabernacle, as the rest did, either not having seasonable notice to repair thither: or, being detained in the camp by sickness, or some urgent occasion, not without God's special providence, that so the miracle might be more evident. Were written — In a book or paper by Moses, who by God's direction nominated the fittest persons.

This is a very power bible verse that seems to be over looked? God Only called out two men only two men in that whole camp full of thousands of upon thousands of not more people? Then they were of them written but, obeyed and stayed back as the lord had instructed them thru the holy spirit. Then they prophesied in the camp. Now the lord can take one bible verse and minister to you in such away that you could be chewing on the spirital meat for mounths to come. I bless god for this bible verse it came to me at the right time that I needed it. Mr. Jeff
