John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 11:29

Enviest thou for my sake — Art thou grieved because the gifts and graces of God are imparted to others besides me? Prophets — He saith prophets, not rulers, for that he knew was absurd and impossible. So we ought to be pleased, that God is glorified and good done, tho' to the lessening of our own honour.
