Now the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east had settled in the plain like locusts in abundance, and their camels were without number, like the sand that is on the seashore in abundance. Bible see other translations

“as the sand that is on the seashore for multitude.” It was Abraham’s descendants that were to be as numerous as the sand on the seashore, but due to the sin of Israel the situation is reversed and the enemy is that numerous (Gen. 22:17; 32:12).
