    Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 11:27

    Eldad and Medad do prophesy, etc. -

    Eldad, they said, and Medad there,

    Irregularly bold,

    By Moses uncommission'd, dare

    A separate meeting hold!

    And still whom none but heaven will own.

    Men whom the world decry,

    Men authorized by God alone,

    Presume to prophesy!

    Wesley's Notes on Numbers 11:27

    11:27 Told Moses - Fearing lest his authority should be diminished by their prophesying; and thereby taking authority to themselves without his consent.
