Wesley's Notes for Numbers 12:2


12:2 By us - Are not we prophets as well as he? so Aaron was made, #Exo 4:15|,16, and so Miriam is called, #Exo 15:20|. And Moses hath debased and mixed the holy seed, which we have not done. Why then should he take all power to himself, and make rulers as he pleaseth, without consulting us. The Lord heard - Observed their words and carriage to Moses.
