whom God has loved, one of the seventy elders whom Moses appointed (Num. 11:26, 27) to administer justice among the people. He, with Medad, prophesied in the camp instead of going with the rest to the tabernacle, as Moses had commanded. This incident was announced to Moses by Joshua, who thought their conduct in this respect irregular. Moses replied, "Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord's people were prophets" (Num. 11:24-30; comp. Mark 9:38; Luke 9:49).
As eldad pointed out, Israel survived that existential threat alone.
In some ways, eldad's kids running around in lion costumes is akin to serving communion wafers as hors d'oeuvrers.
Well, for one, eldad missed the boat on "Zion"—for Rastafarians "Zion" refers not to Biblical Israel, but to Africa.
eldad first set out to visit his Hebrew brethren in Africa and Asia.
My grandfather, eldad Woodruff, was the third son of Josiah.
eldad is quoted as an authority on linguistic difficulties by the leading medieval Jewish grammarians and lexicographers.
The king acquiesced in eldad's advice, and suffered them to partake of his clemency.
So in our days there is a question whether eldad or Medad, prophesying in the camp, ought to be trusted or even allowed to speak.
There was present at the assembly eldad, bishop of Gloucester, and brother of Eldol, a prelate of very great wisdom and piety.
The narrative of Moses' relations to eldad and Medad presents no difficulty.
