My Penultimate Post on the Book of Numbers, Chapter Eleven

Oh my fur and whiskers, the NABRE translates the beginning of Num 11:4 as, "The riffraff among them."

This "riffraff" seems to be the "crowd of mixed ancestry" mentioned in Ex 12:38. The NAB has "foreign elements," the Douay-Rheims "a mixt multitude of people."

Racist much, group of nearly 100 scholars and theologians, including bishops, revisers and editors?
