Numbers 16:4 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Ye take too much upon you - The original is simply רב לכם rab lachem, too much for you.

Moses retorts this saying Numbers 16:7 : Ye take too much upon you, רב לכם rab lachem; Ye have too much already, ye sons of Levi; i.e., by your present spirit and disposition you prove yourselves to be wholly unworthy of any spiritual employment.
