Default Re: "a wild ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every manís hand against him."

Genesis :-o :-o :-o

A Wild Ass Among Men

Quote:
From:

American Standard Speaking Bible
http://www.speakingbible.com/asv/index.htm

Genesis 16:12
And he shall be as a wild ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every manís hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his brethren.
"brethren" - the members of a male religious order.

I still don't see how a "he" could refer here to an entire "civilization". The verse is specifically refering to a single "man" amongst other "men."
