The Outsiders Eldad and Medad | Parshat Behaalotecha

Eldad and Medad are mentioned in the Book of Numbers and are described as having prophesied among the Israelites, despite the fact that they had remained in the camp, while 70 elders had gone to the tabernacle outside the camp to receive the ability to prophesy from God. According to the narrative, Joshua asked Moses to forbid Eldad and Medad from prophecy, but Moses argued that it was a good thing that others could prophesy and that ideally all the Israelites would prophesy.
