When Moses goes up the mountain to meet the Lord he is instructed to bring along seventy elders.
Exodus 24:1 (KJV)
1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the LORD, thou, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and worship ye afar off.
Again in Numbers 11 when the Israelites complain about meat Moses is instructed to select seventy elders to assist him
Numbers 11:16 (KJV)
16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee.
Are these two bodies of seventy elders different or the same?
