Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Numbers 17:12-13

_ _ Behold, we die, we perish — an exclamation of fear, both from the remembrance of former judgments, and the apprehension of future relapses into murmuring.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Numbers 17:8-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Numbers 17:12

We perish — Words of consternation, arising from the remembrance of these severe and repeated judgments, from the threatening of death upon any succeeding murmurings, and from the sense of their own guilt and weakness, which made them fear lest they should relapse into the same miscarriages, and thereby bring the vengeance of God upon themselves.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, (f) we die, we perish, we all perish.

(f) The Chaldea text describes their complaining in this way; "We die by the sword, the earth swallows us up, the pestilence consumes us."
