The conduct and answer of these Reubenites and the associates
are worthy of admiration and imitation. Though conscious of
their innocence, they permitted Phinehas to finish his speech,
though composed of little else than accusations, without any
interruption; and taking in good part the suspicions,
reproofs, and even harshness of their brethren, with the
utmost meekness and solemnity they explain their intention,
give all the satisfaction in their power, and with great
propriety and reverence, appeal to that God against whom they
were supposed to have rebelled.
