  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Eldad 
  whom  God  has  loved,  one  of  the  seventy  elders  whom  Moses 
  appointed  (Num.  11:26,  27)  to  administer  justice  among  the 
  people.  He  with  Medad,  prophesied  in  the  camp  instead  of  going 
  with  the  rest  to  the  tabernacle,  as  Moses  had  commanded.  This 
  incident  was  announced  to  Moses  by  Joshua,  who  thought  their 
  conduct  in  this  respect  irregular.  Moses  replied,  "Enviest  thou 
  for  my  sake?  would  God  that  all  the  Lord's  people  were  prophets" 
  (Num.  11:24-30;  comp.  Mark  9:38;  Luke  9:49).
