Genesis 34:30

And Heel is saying toward News and toward Joined, `Ye have stirred-up אֶת-me, to make me stink in him-who-sits the Earth, in the Humbled, and in the Unwalled. And myself is extended-ones1080 of a number,1081 and they have been gathered upon me, and have smitten me, and I have been desolated, myself and my house.`



Hebrew וַאֲנִי֙ מְתֵ֣י מִסְפָּ֔ר. Ve-ani metay mispar. And myself extended-ones a number. The rarely used word math מַת (#4962) means men and is only found in the plural. Here translators change it to mean “few” to put a particular sense into Jacob’s words.
