Naso: Chapter 7

The mixed multitudes


We learn from Elijah that no new converts will be accepted during the days of the Messiah. Moses asks Elijah to do his utmost not to delay the redemption, since Moses is waiting in the prison of the grave due to the sins of his people. He says that the Torah scholars are suffering and the mixed multitudes are prospering, and adjures Elijah to tell these things to God.
