Bible Commentary for Numbers 1:36

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 1:36


1:37 Thirty five thousand - The smallest number, except one, though Benjamin had more immediate children than any of his brethren, #Gen 46:21|, whereas Dan had but one immediate son, #Gen 46:23|, yet now his number is the biggest but one of all the tribes, and is almost double to that of Benjamin. Such great and strange changes God easily can, and frequently doth make in families, #1Sam 2:5|. And therefore let none boast or please themselves too much in their numerous offspring.
