    Clarke's Commentary on Numbers 11:28

    My lord Moses, forbid them -

    How often have I blindly done

    What zealous Joshua did,

    Impatient to the rulers run,

    And cried, "My lords, forbid!

    Silence the schismatics, constrain

    Their thoughts with ours t' agree,

    And sacrifice the souls of men

    To idol unity!"

    Wesley's Notes on Numbers 11:28

    11:28 One of his young men - Or, one of his choice ministers, which may be emphatically added, to note that even great and good men may mistake about the works of God. Forbid them - He feared either schism, or sedition, or that by their usurpation of authority, independently upon Moses, his power and esteem might be lessened.
