Moshav Zekenim, Ba'al ha'Turim: Because the tribe of Naftali had more women than men. 1 Rabeinu Bachye (20)


Moshav Zekenim, Ba'al ha'Turim: And that explains why in Parshas Pinchas, the Torah writes "Bnei" by all the tribes, since at that stage, the men had died, and every tribe comprised more women than men.
