Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 12:6-7

_ _ Hear now my words — A difference of degree is here distinctly expressed in the gifts and authority even of divinely commissioned prophets. Moses, having been set over all God’s house, (that is, His church and people), was consequently invested with supremacy over Miriam and Aaron also and privileged beyond all others by direct and clear manifestations of the presence and will of God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 12:4-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 12:6

Among you — if you be prophets, yet know there is a difference among prophets, nor do I put equal honour upon all of them.
