Whom God has loved, one of the seventy elders whom Moses appointed (Numbers 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" (Numbers 11:24-30 ; Compare Mark 9:38 ; Luke 9:49 ).
