seventy of the elders

Exodus 24:1

24:1 seventy of the elders. No explanation is offered as to how these were chosen, along with Aaron and his two sons. Possibly they were among those appointed to Moses to help in the work of judging (Exodus 18:25). The number seventy may have been significant in commemorating the seventy founders who had migrated to Israel with Jacob (Genesis 46:27).
