The effects are typically short-term and there is an associated risk of hyperinflation, leading some observers to regard...

...show that his word is good. As for burden-sharing ( vv. 16–17, 24–30 ), Moses obeys God and gathers seventy elders around the tent (probably in the centre of the camp in spite of vv. 26, 30 , which may speak of movement within the camp).

While they prophesy only...
