25:3 Can his armies be numbered?1644
tnHeb “Is there a number to his troops?” The question is rhetorical: there is no number to them!
On whom does his light1645
tc In place of “light” here the LXX has “his ambush,” perhaps reading אֹרְבוֹ (’or˙vo) instead of אוֹרֵהוּ (’orehu, “his light”). But while that captures the idea of troops and warfare, the change should be rejected because the armies are linked with stars and light. The expression is poetic; the LXX interpretation tried to make it concrete.
