{Numbers 1:14} Of Gad; 1410 Eliasaph 460 the son 1121 of Deuel. 1845
Eliasaph:
"On the sixth day Eliasaph the son of Deuel, prince of the children of Gad, [offered]:" {Num 7:42} + "And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad [was] Eliasaph the son of Deuel." {Num 10:20}, Son of Reuel, "Then the tribe of Gad: and the captain of the sons of Gad [shall be] Eliasaph the son of Reuel." {Num 2:14}
Deuel:
As the ד, daleth is very like the ר, resh, they might be easily mistaken for each other; and hence this person being called both Deuel and Reuel, may be easily accounted for. The Septuagint and Syriac have Reuel, in this chapter; and in "Then the tribe of Gad: and the captain of the sons of Gad [shall be] Eliasaph the son of Reuel." {Num 2:14}, the Samaritan, Vulgate, and Arabic have Deuel, instead of Reuel, with which reading a vast number of manuscripts concur, and which is also supported by "On the sixth day Eliasaph the son of Deuel, prince of the children of Gad, [offered]:" {Num 7:42} + "And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad [was] Eliasaph the son of Deuel." {Num 10:20}. We may therefore safely conclude, the Deuel, and not Reuel, was the original reading.
