Exodus 34:29 the Second Book of Moses

Edited by JE Bradburn

 

Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man his household came with Jacob.

Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah,

Issachar, Zebulon, and Benjamin,

Dan, Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.

And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already. Joseph died, and all his brothers, and all that generation. And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceedingly mighty; and the land was filled with them.

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; unless they multiply, and it came to pass, that, when there falls out any war, they join also with our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.” Therefore, they set task masters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. (Pithom is the Egyptian Pa-Tum the treasure cities abode of the god Tum means; Greek, city of the store house). (Raamses; said to be so called because it was built by Ramases II, but uncertain. Both pyramids, in any case; are not to be confused with the three main Pyramids). But the more they afflicted, the more they multiplied and grew. They were grieved because of the children of Israel, and the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour (crushingly). They made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service wherein they made them serve, was with rigour. The king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name was Shiphrah (Shiphrah (Hebrew: širâ) was one of two midwives who helped prevent the genocide of Hebrew children by the Egyptians). And the name of the other Puah: He said, “When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them on the stools, if it be a son, then you shall kill him: but if it be a daughter it shall live. However the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive. The king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said to them, “Why have you done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered before the midwives come to them.” Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied and waxed very mighty. It came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses. Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, “Every son that is born you shall cast into the river, and every daughter you shall save alive.

(This was another assault of Satan, to destroy the male children, and so prevent “the seed of the woman” from coming into the world. https://levendwater.org/companion/append23.html But God intervened by providing the Hebrew midwives, and preserving and preparing Moses).

 

Genesis 3:15 (KJV) “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

 

And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

The woman conceived, and bare a son, and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him for three months. When she could no longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s bank. And his sister stood afar off, and wondered what would become of him. (Moses was the seventh from Abraham, Abraham the seventh from Heber, Enoch the seventh from Adam.

Miriam and Aaron were already born). (Seven (7): Denotes spiritual perfection: It is the number or hallmark of the Holy Spirits work. He is the Author of God’s Word, and seven is stamped on it as the watermark as seen in the manufacture of paper. He is the Author and giver of life; and seven is the number, which regulates every period of Incubation and Gestation, in insects, birds, animals, and man). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/significanceofnumbers.htm

 

The daughter of Pharaoh came down to the river to wash herself; and her maidens walked along the river’s bank; when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.

When she opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. She had compassion on him, and said, “This is one of the Hebrews children.” (In that tear lay the defeat of Satan, the preservation of the Nation, the faithfulness of Jehovah’s Word, the bringing to nought ‘the wisdom of Egypt’, and the coming of the ‘seed of the woman’). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm

Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Shall I go and call to you a nurse of the Hebrew women, so that she may nurse the child for you?” Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go.” And the maid went and called the child’s mother. Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages.” And the woman took the child and nursed it. When the child had grown she brought it to Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. She called his name Moses: and she said, “Because I

drew him out of the water.” And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren, and looked on their burden: and he spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren. He looked this way and that, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.

When he went out the second day, two men of the Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, “Why did you smite your fellow?” And he said, “Who made you a prince and judge over us? do you intend to kill me as you did the Egyptian?” Moses feared, and said, “Surely this thing is known.” Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well. Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock. The shepherd’s come and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock. When they came to Reuel their father said, “How is it that you are come so soon today? “They replied, “An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and drew enough water for us also, and watered the flock.”

He said to his daughter’s, “Where is he? why is it you have left the man? call him that he may eat bread.” Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses his daughter Zipporah. She bares him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, “I have been a stranger in a strange land.” And it came to pass in the process of time, the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of their bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up to God by reason of the bondage.

God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

God looked on the children of Israel, and He had respect to them. Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the west side of the desert, and came

to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a flame of

fire out of the midst of the bush: he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

(This is the first mention of the Desert of Sinai in connection with feeding a flock! Horeb. Never used in New Testament. There “the wisdom of Egypt” had to be unlearned and God made known).

 

Isaiah 50:4 (KJV) “The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.”

 

(Angel Of the LORD: Jehovah i.e. Jehovah Himself then the word “God” appeared forty years later).

Moses said “I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.”

And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush, and said, “Moses, Moses.” And he replied, “Here I am.” He said, “Draw not near here: put off your shoes from off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”

He said, “I am the God of your father, The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

The LORD said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My People which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; and I am come down to deliver them out of the hands of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good land and a large, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. (Six nations mentioned which is the number of man). Polysyndeton: (The repetition of the word "and" at the beginning of successive clauses, each independent, important, and emphatic, with no climax at the end). These were definitely Satan’s children https://levendwater.org/companion/append6.html

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto Me: and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore; and I will send you to Pharaoh, that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt.”

And Moses said unto God, “Who am I that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?” And He said, “Certainly, I will be with you; and this shall be a token to you, that I have sent you: When you have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain. Moses said to God, “Behold, when I come to the children of Israel, I shall say to them, “The God of your fathers has sent me to you; and they shall say to me, ‘What is His name?’ ‘What shall I say to them?’ ”

And God said to Moses, “I AM THAT I AM:” and He said, “Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ” God said, moreover to Moses, “Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, ‘The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you:’ this is my name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations. (He changes not; He is therefore Israel’s God today as then).

 

Malachi 3:6 (KJV) “For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.”

 

Consumed: to destroy or expend by use; use up. Destroy or be destroyed by burning, decomposition, etc: http://www.godsplan.org.uk/earthlytabernacle.htm

Go and gather the elders of Israel together, and say to them, “The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared to me, saying, ‘I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt: And I have said, ‘I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt to the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey.’ ”

And they shall hearken to your voice: you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, ‘The LORD God of the Hebrews has met with us: and now let us go, we beseech you, three days journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God’

And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by a mighty hand. And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will let you go. I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when you go, you shall not go empty: But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that stays in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and you shall put them on your sons, and daughters; and you shall spoil the Egyptians.”

(Borrow is a most unfortunate rendering, or translation, The Hebrew language sha’al means to ask. Out of 168 occurrences, only six times it means “borrow”, but 162 times it means ask, beg, or require &c.)

Moses answered and said, “But, behold, they will not believe me, nor listen to my voice: for they will say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you.’ ” And the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A rod.” The LORD then spoke and said, “Cast it on the ground.” He cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. The LORD said, “Put forth your hand and take it by the tail.” He put forth his hand , caught it, and it became a rod in his hand: “That they may believe that the LORD God of their father’s, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob has appeared to you.”

And the LORD said furthermore to him, “Put now your hand into your bosom.” He put his hand into his bosom and when he took it out, behold his hand was leprous as snow. He said, “Put your hand into your bosom again.” He put his hand into his bosom and, behold, it was turned again as his other flesh. “It shall come to pass, if they will not believe you, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign. It shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two signs, neither hearken to your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water which you have taken out of the river shall become blood on the dry land.” Moses said to the LORD, “O, my LORD, I am not eloquent, neither before or since YOU have spoken to Your servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”

The LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? or Who has made the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall say.” (“Not a man of words,” eloquence is no necessary part of “wisdom”. With all the ‘wisdom of the Egyptians’ he had not the wisdom needed for his work. The latter had to be learned at the “back of the desert.”)

Moses replied, “O my LORD, send I pray You, by the hand of Him Whom You will send.” And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and He said, “Is not Aaron the Levite your brother? I know that he can speak well. Also, behold, he comes forth to meet you: and when he sees you he will be glad in his heart. And you shall speak to him, and put words in his mouth: I will be with your mouth, and with his mouth, and teach you what you shall do. He shall be your spokesman to the People: and he shall be, even he shall be to you instead of a mouth, and you shall be to him instead of God. And you shall take this rod in your hand, where you shall do signs.”

‘The image on the left is a true statement of Genesis 3:15 KJV; later to be shown in the New Testament as the crucifixion. The serpent at the top of the staff represents Satan’s attack on Christ. The staff represents the tree, while the crossbar at the top represents Pontius Plate’s inscription which was inscribed in Latin; “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.” Please note; it is not a crucifix. The Romans, the ones who crucified Christ, are known to have used instruments of various shapes. Some were simply upright timbers, others had crosspieces attached either at the top or just a little below the top. The word "cross" in the New Testament comes from the Greek word stauros. The study of word origins shows that stauros simply means "stake" or "pole." This word was used in literature in reference to pieces of wood of various shapes, including those with crosspieces.’

Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said to him, “Let me go, I pray you, and return to my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they yet be alive.” Jethro said to Moses, “Go in peace.”

The LORD said to Moses in Midian, “Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought your life.” Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them on an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.

The LORD said to Moses, “When you go and return into Egypt. see that you do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in your hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the People go.

Three words used for “harden”:

1.      Hāzak means to brace or tighten up.

2.      Kāshah means to make sharp, hard, severe, and cruel.

3.      Kābēd means to become heavy.

It was in each case God’s clemency and forbearing goodness which produced the hardening. That goodness which ‘leads to repentance’: just as the same sun which softens the wax hardens the clay.

 

Romans 2:4 (KJV) “Or despisest thou the riches of His goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?”

 

Exodus 4:21-23 (KJV)

21 And the Lord said unto Moses, “When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.”

22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, “Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:”

23 And I say unto thee, “Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.”

 

And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him [his son]. (A further lesson not learned in Egypt or at Horeb. A secret in Moses’ life, known only to himself. Moses had neglected to circumcise Eliezer. To save the child’s life, Zipporah now performs the right herself.)

 

Exodus 4:25-26 (KJV)

25 Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet, and said, “Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.”

26 So He let him go: then she said, “A bloody husband thou art, because of the circumcision.”

 

And the LORD said to Aaron; “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed him. Moses told Aaron all the words of the LORD Who had sent him, and all the signs which He had commanded him. Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the children of Israel. Aaron spoke all the words which the LORD had spoken to Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the People. And the People believed: and when they heard that the LORD had visited the children of Israel, and that He had looked upon their affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

Afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, “Thus says the LORD God of Israel, ‘Let my people go so that they can hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.” Pharaoh replied, “Who is this LORD that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not your LORD, nor will I let Israel go.”

They replied, The God of the Hebrews has met with us: let us go, we pray you, three days journey into the desert, and sacrifice to the LORD our God; lest he fall on us with pestilence, or with the sword.” The king of Egypt said to them, “Why do you, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you to your burdens.” Pharaoh said, “Behold, the People of the land now are many, and you will make them rest from their burdens.” Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the People, and their officers, saying,” You shall no more give the People straw make brick, as before: let them go and gather straw for themselves. The tale of the bricks which they made before, you shall lay on them; you shall not diminish but work harder for they be idle; therefore they cry,

saying, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’ Let there be more work laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.” The taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, “Thus says Pharaoh, ‘I will not give you straw. Go you, and get your straw where you can find it: yet not any of your work shall be diminished.’ ” So the People were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw. The taskmasters hurried them saying, “Fulfill your works, your daily tasks as when there was straw.” The officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, “Why have you not fulfilled your task in making brick both yesterday and today, as before?”

Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried to Pharaoh, saying, “Why do you deal so with your servants? There is no straw given to your servants, and they say to us, ‘Make brick:’ and, behold your servants are beaten; but the fault is in your own people.” But Pharaoh said, “You are idle, you are idle: therefore you say, “Let us go and do sacrifice to the LORD.’ Go now, and work: for there shall be no straw given you, yet shall you deliver the tale of bricks.” And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, after it was said, “You shall not diminish anything from your bricks of your daily task.”

They met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came from pharaoh: They said to them, “The LORD look upon you, and judge; because you have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us. Moses returned to the LORD, and said, “LORD, why have YOU so evil entreated this people? why is it that you have sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this People; neither have You delivered Your People at all.”

 

Exodus 6:1 (KJV) Then the LORD said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.”

 

God spoke unto Moses, and said to him, “I Am the LORD: And I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, by the name of GOD ALMIGHTY, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

I have also established My covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered My covenant. Why would I say to the children of Israel, I Am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgements: I will take you to Me for a People, and I will be to you a God: and you shall know that I Am the LORD your God, which brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. I will bring you into the land, concerning which I did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for a heritage: I Am the LORD.’ ”

Moses spoke so to the children of Israel: but they hearkened not to Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage. And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Go in, speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children go out of his land.” Moses spoke to the LORD, saying, “Behold, the children of Israel have not hearkened to me; how then shall Pharaoh hear me, who is of uncircumcised lips?”

The LORD spoke to Moses and also unto Aaron, and gave them a charge to the children of Israel, and to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.

The twelve tribes of Israel; these are they Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, “Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.

These are they which spoke to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: they are Moses and Aaron. And it came to pass when the LORD spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, saying, “I Am the LORD: speak to Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say to you.” And Moses said before LORD, “Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?”

The LORD replied to Moses, “See I have made you a God to Pharaoh: and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. You shall speak all that I command you: and Aaron your brother shall speak to

Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt.

 

Exodus 7: 4—5 KJV

4 ‘But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.’

5 ‘And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.’

 

Moses and Aaron did as the LORD command them, so did they. Moses was fourscore years old and three (83) when they spoke to Pharaoh. And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “When Pharaoh shall speak to you, saying, “Show a miracle for you:’ then you will say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast before Pharaoh. and it shall become a serpent.”

Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did as the LORD had commanded: Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants and it became a 1serpent.

Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also di in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down everyman his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. And God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not to them; as the LORD had said.

The LORD said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is hardened; he refuses to let the people go. Go to Pharaoh in the morning; lo he goes out to the water; and you shall stand by the river’s bank where he will pass: and the rod which was turned to a serpent shall you take in your hand.

You shall say to him, “The LORD God of the heavens has sent me to you, saying, “Let My People go, that they may serve me in the wilderness:’ and, behold, until now you would not hear. Thus says the LORD, “In this you shall know that I Am the LORD:’ behold, I will smite with the rod that is in my hand upon the waters which are upon the river, and it shall be turned to blood. The fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall loathe drinking of the water of the river.’ ”

The LORD spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘take your rod and stretch out your hand on the waters of Egypt, on their streams, on their rivers, and on their ponds, and on all the pools of water, that they may become blood: that there may be blood throughout the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and vessels of stone.’ ”

Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. The fish in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the river; there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments: Pharaoh’s heart was hardened; neither did he hearken to them; as the LORD had said. Pharaoh turned and went into his house; neither did he set his heart to this also. All the Egyptians dug round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. Seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river.

The LORD spoke again to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh, and say to him, ‘Thus saith the LORD, ‘Let my People go that they may serve Me.’ If you refuse to let them go, behold I will smite all your borders with frogs: And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedchamber, and on your bed, and into the house of your servants, and on your people, into your ovens, and kneading troughs. The frogs shall come up both on you, and your people, and on all your servants. And the LORD spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch forth your hand with your rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs

to come up unto the land of Egypt. The magicians did the same with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the People go, that they may do sacrifice to the LORD.” Moses said to Pharaoh, “Glory over me: when shall I intreat for you, and for your servants, and for the people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, that they may remain in the river only?” Pharaoh replied, “Tomorrow.” And he said, “Be it according to your word: that you may know that there is none like unto the LORD our God. The frogs shall depart from you, and your houses, and from your servants and people; they shall remain in the river only.”

Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried to the LORD because of the frogs which He had brought against Pharaoh. The LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages and out of the fields. They gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank. But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not to them; as the LORD had said.

The LORD said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.’ ” And they did s; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout the land of Egypt.

And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice on man, and on beast.

Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God:” Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not to them; as the LORD had said.

The LORD said to Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he comes to the water; and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD, ‘Let my People go, that they may serve Me. Else, if you will not let My People go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you, and your servants and people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereupon they stand.” I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which My People dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I Am the LORD in the midst of the earth. And I will put a division between My People, and your people: tomorrow shall this sign be.’ ”

The LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, into his servant’s houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.

Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Go you, sacrifice to your God in the land of Egypt.” Moses said, “It is not meet to do [no]; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians [cattle] before their eyes, and will they not stone us? We will go three days journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as He shall command us. Pharaoh said, “I will let you go that you may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness, only you shall not go very far away: intreat [ask] for me.” Moses said, “Behold, I will go out from you, and I will intreat th LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, form his servants, and from his people, tomorrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the People go to sacrifice to the LORD.” Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD. And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and He removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and

from his people; there remained not one. Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also; neither would he let the People go.

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh and tell him, Thus says the LORD God of the Hebrews, ‘Let My People go that they may serve Me.” For if you refuse to let them go, and withhold them still, Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon your cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, asses, camels, oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain [death]. And the LORD shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.’ ’ ”

The LORD appointed a set time, saying, “Tomorrow the LORD will do this thing in the Land.” The LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but all the cattle of the children of Israel died not one. The heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the People go. The LORD said to Moses, and Aaron, “Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

It shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. They took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains [sores] on man, and on beasts. The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and on all the Egyptians. The LORD again hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not to them; as the LORD had spoken to Moses. The LORD said to Moses, “Rise up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, and say to him, ‘Thus sayeth the LORD God of the Hebrews

 

‘Let My People go that they may serve Me. For I will at this time send all My plagues upon your heart, and on your servants, and people; that you may know that there is none like Me in all the earth. As yet exalted you, yourself, against My People, that you will not let them go? Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain very a very grievous hail, such has not been seen in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now. Send therefore now, and gather your cattle, and all that you have in the field; for on every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down on them, and they shall die.’ ’ ” He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: And He that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and cattle in the field.

 

Exodus 9:22-26 (KJV)

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.”

23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

 

Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there is no

more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, you shall stay no longer. Moses said to him, “As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands to the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that you may know how the earth is the LORD’S. But as for you and your servants, I know that you will not yet fear the LORD God” The flax and the barley were smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. (A word of Scandinavian origin, much like the English word bulged [i.e. swelled, or ripe]. This is true to the seasons in Egypt to this day.) But the wheat and the rye were not smitten: for they were not grown up. Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread apart his hands to the LORD: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured on the earth. When Pharaoh saw that the rain the hail, and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants. The heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the LORD had spoken by Moses.

 

Exodus 10:1-6 (KJV)

1 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these My signs before him:’

2 ‘And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son's son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and My signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.’”

3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, “Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.’

4 ‘Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:’

5 ‘And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:’

6 ‘And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers' fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.’”

 

Pharaoh’s servants said to him, “How long shall this man be a snare to us? let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God: know you not that Egypt is destroyed? “Moses replied, “Moses and Aaron were brought again to Pharaoh: and he said to them, “Go serve the LORD your God: but who are they that shall go? “Moses replied, “We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast to the LORD.” Pharaoh said to Moses and Aaron, “Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it for evil is before you. Not so: go now you that are men, and serve the LORD for that you did desire.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence. The LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up on the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail has left.” Moses stretched forth his staff over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an easterly wind on the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning the easterly wind brought the locusts. The locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such. For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened. and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees, or in the herbs of the field, throughout all the lands of Egypt.

 

Pharaoh then called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and said, “I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you. Now therefore forgive, I pray you, my sin only this once, and intreat the

LORD your God, that He may take away from me this death only.” And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD. The LORD turned a mighty and strong west wind which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red Sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt. But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

And the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand towards heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.”

Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness over the land of Egypt for three days: They saw not one another, neither rose any from their place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

Pharaoh called to Moses, and said, “Go and serve the LORD; only let your flocks and herds stay here: let your little ones also go with you.” Moses replied, “You must let us also take sacrifices and burnt offerings that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God.” Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve our LORD until we get there.” But the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart and he would not let them go. Pharaoh said to him, “Get you from me, take heed to yourself, and see my face no more; for in that day you see my face you shall die.” And Moses said, “You have spoken well, I will see your face again no more.”

The LORD said to Moses, “Yet will I bring one more plague upon Pharaoh, and on Egypt; afterwards he will let you go therefore: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out altogether. Speak to the People, and let everyman borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver and gold.”

And the LORD gave the People favour in the sight of the Egyptians. (Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people).

 

Exodus 11:4-6 (KJV)

4 And Moses said, “Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:

5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more”.

 

THE ELEVENTH SIGN: DEATH OF PHARAOH’S SON; AND EVERY FIRSTBORN, ANIMAL AND HUMAN IN EGYPT.

 

‘But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that you may know how that the LORD puts a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.’ And all these your servants shall come down to me, and bow themselves to me, saying, ‘Get you out, and all the People that follow you: and after that I will go out.” And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger. And the LORD said to Moses, “Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that My wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.” Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land. And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be to you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.” Speak you to the whole

congregation of Israel, saying, ‘In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house: And thus shall you eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s Passover.

 

Exodus 12:12-13 (KJV)

12 “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.”

13 “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”

14 “And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.”

15 “Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.”

16 “And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.”

17 “And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.”

18 “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.”

19 “Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.”

20 “Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.”

 

Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the Passover. And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you. Ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.

 

Exodus 12:25-28 (KJV)

25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

 

And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise up and get you forth from among my people, both you and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD as you have said.

Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also. The Egyptians were urgent upon the People, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, “We be all dead men.” The People took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders. And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, jewels of gold, and raiment: The LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians so that they lent to them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians. And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children. A mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks and herds of cattle, even very much cattle. They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought from Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victuals. Now the sojourning of the children of Israel (who dwelt in Egypt), was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt. It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed by all the children of Israel in their generations. Moses said to the People, “Remember this day, in which you came out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place; there shall no leavened bread be eaten. This day came you out in the month Abib. It shall be when the LORD brings you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, Amorites, Hivites, and the Jebusites (Satan’s lineage of Tares), which He swore to your fathers to give you a land flowing with milk and honey, that you will keep this service in this month. For seven days shall you eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD. And it shall be for a sign to you on thy hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that the LORD’s law may be in your mouth.

And it came to pass when Pharaoh had let the People go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was nearer; for God said, “Less perhaps the People repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt.” But God led the People about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

Red Sea: “Red” comes from the Greeks reading Edom [whose land it washed] as an appellative [descriptive name] instead of a proper name [Esau or Edom: RED, Gen 25:25]. It was called Red from the Septuagint. It dried up fifty miles north of present shore, and will quite dry up at future Exodus).

 

Isaiah 11:15-16 (KJV)

15 “And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His mighty wind shall He shake His hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dry-shod.”

16 “And there shall be an highway for the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.”

 

Isaiah 19:5 (KJV) “And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.”

 

(Harnessed means marshalled by fives, the number of grace, to this day five is the evil number in Egypt. Whichever is the meaning, both point to order and organisation. They were an organised “host”, and not a disorderly rabble.) And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn to the children of Israel, saying, “God will surely visit you; and you will carry up my bones away hence with you.”

They took their journey from Succoth, and camped in Etham, at the edge of the wilderness. And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night from before the People.

And the LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon: before it shall you encamp by the sea. For Pharaoh shall say of the children of Israel, ‘They are entangled in the land, the wilderness has shut them in.’ And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and on all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD.” And they did so. It was told to the king of Egypt that the People had fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of the servants was turned against the People and they said, “Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?”

 

Exodus 14:6-9 (KJV)

6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

8 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh King of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.

9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

 

And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: the children of Israel cried out to the LORD.

The children of Israel said to Moses, “Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? why have you dealt with us, and to carry us out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we did tell you in Egypt saying, “Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians, [better that] than we should die in the wilderness.”

Moses said to the People, “Fear you not, stand still and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will show to you today: for the Egyptians who you have seen today, you shall see them again no more forever. The LORD shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace.” The LORD said to Moses. “Why [do they] cry unto Me? speak to the children of Israel that they go forward: But lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go dry ground through the midst of the sea. I, behold, I, will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get Me honour on Pharaoh, and on his entire host, on his chariots, and on his horsemen. The Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have got Me honour on Pharaoh, on his chariots, and on his horsemen.

The angel of God, (Elohim; the creator in relation to His creatures.) which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these; so that the one came not near the other all night. Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back

by a strong easterly wind all that night, and made the sea dry land and the waters were divided.

And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea on the dry ground: and the waters were a wall to them on their left and right. The Egyptians pursued and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked to the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians. And took off their chariot wheels, so they drove them heavily: and the Egyptians said, “Let us flee from the face of Israel for the LORD fights for them against the Egyptians.”

And the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may come again on the Egyptians, on their chariots, and on their horsemen.

Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. The waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall to them on their left and right.

Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the shore. Israel saw the great work which the LORD did on the Egyptians: and the People feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses. Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song to the LORD, and spoke saying,

 

Exodus 15:1—21 (KJV)

01“I will sing unto the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously: The horse and his rider has He thrown into the sea.

02 The LORD is my strength and song, And He is become my salvation: He is my God and I will prepare Him an habitation; My father’s God and I will exalt Him.

03 The LORD is a man of war: The LORD is His name.

04 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: His chosen captains are also drowned in the Red Sea.

05 The depths has covered them: They sank to the bottom as a stone.

06 Your right hand, O LORD, has become glorious in power: Your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.

07 And in the greatness of your excellency You have overthrown them that rose up against You:You sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

08 And with the blast of Your nostrils the waters were gathered together, The floods stood upright as a heap, And the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

09 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; My lust shall be satisfied on them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.’

10 You did blow with Your wind, the sea covered them: They sank as lead in the mighty waters.

11 Who is like unto YOU, O LORD among the gods? Who is like YOU, glorious in holiness? Fearful in praises, doing wonders?

12 You stretched out Your right hand, and the earth swallowed them.

13 You in Your mercy have led forth the People which You have redeemed: You have guided them in Your strength to the Holy habitation. The People shall hear, and be afraid:

Sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestine.

15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; The mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold on them. All the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

16 Fear and dread shall fall on them; By the greatness of Your arm they shall be as still as stone; Until Your People Passover, O LORD, Until the People Passover, which You have purchased.

17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of Your inheritance, In the place O LORD, which You have made for You to dwell in, In the sanctuary, O LORD, which Your hands have established.

18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.

19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea on them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.”

20 Miriam the prophetess, sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

21Miriam answered them, sing you to the LORD, for He has triumphed gloriously; The horse and his rider has He thrown into the sea.”

 

 

So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea, and they went out to the wilderness of Shur; they went for three days in the wilderness, and found no water. When they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

(Marah mean bitter. The Divine principle in the training of God’s People. Foreshown in Abraham’s furnace and lamp; Marah before Elim; wilderness before Canaan; crucifix before crown; worse before better [John 2:10]; suffering before glory [Luke 24:26, 46].

 

John 2:10 (KJV) And saith unto him, “Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.”

 

And the People murmured against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?”

(This was the first murmuring after leaving Egypt, despite Our LORD’s deliverance and care of

of the children of Israel. Their faith was so low they could think only of themselves). He cried to the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree, which when he had into the waters, the waters were made sweet: There He made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there He proved them. (The tree, including the crucifixion, is the Divine provision for every trial).

 

The LORD will provide.

Though troubles assail,

and dangers affright,

Though friends should all fail,

And foes unite;

Yet one thing secures us,

whatever betides,

The Scripture assures us,

The KORD will provide.

And said, “if you will diligently listen to the voice of the LORD your God, and do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth you.”

 

Exodus 15:26 (KJV) And said, “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

 

And they came to Elim, and there were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: they encamped there by the waters.

They took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came to the wilderness of sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt. (Ziv: the second month of the Jewish calendar.)

(Journey: The Egyptian kings of the twelfth dynasty worked copper and turquoise mines in the peninsula of Sinai; which were afterward disused until the Eighteenth dynasty. For the old roads that are left see https://levendwater.org/companion/append50.html.  

And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured [moaned again] against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

The children of Israel said to them, “Would to God if we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for you have brought us forth into the wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”

 

Exodus 16:4-8 (KJV)

4 Then said the Lord unto Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.’

5 ‘And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.’”

6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, “then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:’

7 ‘And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that He heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?’”

8 And Moses said, “This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against Him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD.”

 

Moses spoke to Aaron, “Say to all the congregation of the children of Israel, ‘Come near before the

LORD: for He has heard your murmurings.’ ” And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud. The LORD spoke to Moses saying, “I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak to them, saying, ‘At even you shall eat flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread; and you shall know that I am the LORD your God.’” And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, on the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “It is manna:” for they was not sure what it was. Moses said to them, “This is the bread which the LORD has given you to eat.”

This is the thing which the LORD has commanded.

Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer [unit of measure] for every man, according to the number of your persons; take you every man for those which are in your tents.” The children of Israel did so, and gathered some more, some less.

When they did mete [dole out] it with an omer, they that gathered much had nothing left over, and they that gathered little had no lack; they gathered everyone to their according to their eating. Moses said, “Let no one leave it until morning.” Notwithstanding they hearkened not to Moses; but some of them left it until the morning, and it had bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

They gathered it every morning, everyone according to their eating: and when the sun waxed hot it melted. And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for each person: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. He said to them, “This is what the LORD says, Tomorrow is the day of rest, the holy Sabbath to the LORD: bake that which you will bake today, and seethe [boil] that you will see the [churn]; and that which remains over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.’” And they laid it up until the morning, as Moses commanded: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein. Moses said, “Eat that today; for today is a Sabbath to the LORD: today you shall not find it in the field. For six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is the Sabbath, in it there shall be none.

 

Exodus 16:27-29 (KJV)

27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

28 And the Lord said unto Moses, “How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?’

29 ‘See, for that the Lord hath given you the Sabbath, therefore He giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.’ ”

 

And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. Moses said, “This is the thing which the LORD commands. Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations: that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.” The children of Israel did eat Manna for forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat Manna, until they came to the borders of Canaan.

And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin [bush], after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the People to drink. Wherefore the People did chide with Moses, and said, “”Give us water that we may drink.” And Moses said to them, “Why chide me with me? why do you tempt the LORD?” And the People thirsted for water: the People murmured against Moses, and said,

“Why is it that you have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?” Moses cried to the LORD, saying, “What shall I do with this People? They are almost ready to stone me.” And the LORD said to Moses, “Go on before the People, and take with you the elders of Israel; and your staff, wherewith you smote the River, take it in your hand and go.

 

Exodus 17:6 (KJV) “Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

 

And he called the name of that place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding [scolding] of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD saying, “Is the LORD among us or not?” (Massah means the tempting of God. Meribah means strife. Striving with Moses. The People also tempted Jehovah to cut them off).

And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.”

So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill. It came to pass, that when Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed: and when he let down his had Amalek prevailed. But Moses’s hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon: and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua discomfited Amalek

with the edge of the sword. The LORD said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi: because he said, “Because the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” (Surely the hand [lifted up] upon the banner of Jah [is to swear]: for the war of Jehovah against Amalek [the grandson of Esau] is to be from generation to generation; and so it was) http://jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/1351-amalek-amalekites

In the third month, when the children of Israel had gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai. For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and it was there that Israel pitched before the mount. And Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him out of the mountain saying, “Thus shall you say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles wings, and brought you to Myself. Now therefore if you will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, the you shall be a peculiar treasure to Me above all people: for all the earth is Mine: And you shall be to me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel. “Moses came and called for the elders of the People, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD had commanded him. All the People answered together, and said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do.” And Moses returned the words of the People to the LORD. And the LORD said to Moses, “Lo I come unto you in a thick cloud, that the People may hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.” Moses told the words of the People to the LORD.

The LORD said to Moses, “Go on to the People, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes. Be ready against the third day: for the third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all the People upon Mount Sinai. And you will set bounds to the People round about saying, ‘Take heed to yourselves, that you go not up into the Mount, or touch the border of it,: whosoever touches the Mount will be surely put to death: There shall not a hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live:’ when the trumpet sounds long, they shall come up the mount.” And Moses went down from the Mount to the

People, and sanctified them; and they washed their clothes. It came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the Mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceedingly loud; so that all the People that was in the camp trembled.

 

Exodus 19:17-19 (KJV)

17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether [near] part of the mount.

18 And Mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.

 

And the LORD came down on Mount Sinai, on the top of the Mount: the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount, and Moses went up. The LORD said to Moses, “Go down, charge the People, unless they break through to the LORD’s gaze, and many of them perish. Let the priest also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify [to make (something) holy] themselves unless the LORD break forth on them .” Moses said to the LORD, “The People cannot come up to Mount Sinai: for You charged us, saying, ‘Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it (Make Holy).” The LORD said to him, “Away, get thee down, and you shall come up, you and Aaron with you: but let not the priests and People break through to come up unto the LORD, unless He break forth on them.” So Moses went down to the People, and spoke to them. And God spake all these words saying,

 

 

Exodus 20:2-17 (KJV) The Ten Commandments.

02 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

03 (1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

04 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

05 (2) Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

06 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

07 (3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

08 (4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

09 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 (5) Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 (6) Thou shalt not kill. [Murder]

14 (7) Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 (8) Thou shalt not steal.

16 (9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 (10) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

 

 

God Spoke: (Elohim hence of universal application. Not Jehovah, for this title would have limited the law to Israel). All these words: (It has been asserted [alleged] that there are three strata of laws in the Pentateuch:-

 

1.      The Prophetic code.

2.      The Priest code.

3.      The Deuteronomy code.

 

But the structures of these books indicate that these where in perfect order, spoken; at sundry times and in diverse manners.’) The Ten Commandments divided by Christ into two tables of five [Denotes Divine Grace]. Duty to God and Neighbour Divided by man into 4 and 6.

By Roman Catholics [in their Catechism] the second commandment is joined to the first, and the Tenth is divided into two. But this is impossible).

The Structures of the whole divides them into 5 + 5 the number of grace. The Law was given by Moses, but ‘Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ’ ‘true grace’. For there was grace in the law, seeing no other nation was favoured with it. Moreover, the first five commandments are linked together by the words “the LORD thy God”, and the second five by the word “Thou”.

And all the People saw the thunderings and lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the People saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.

 

Ephesians 2:13 (KJV) But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

 

They said to Moses, “Speak you with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, less we die.” And Moses said to the People, “Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that His fear may be before your faces, that you sin not.” And the people stood far off, Moses drew near to the thick darkness where God was. And the LORD said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘You have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. You shall not make of Me gods of silver, neither shall you make to you gods of gold. (This completes the first five commandments, and ends with promise. These five which relate to piety, are thus separated from the five that relate to probity. [integrity]The first and fifth begin and end the five with honour to God, and to our parents whom He honours. They have nothing to do with our “neighbours”).

An altar of earth you shall make to Me, and shall sacrifice thereon your burnt offerings, your sheep, and your oxen: In all places where I record My name I will come to you, and I will bless you. And if you will make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn [shaped] stone: for if you lift up your tools on it, you have polluted it. Neither shall you go up by steps unto My altar, that your nakedness be not discovered thereon.’

When the People saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the People gathered themselves together to Aaron, and said to him, “Up and make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what has become of him.” (Commandment I & II above): Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them to me.” All the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. He received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf:

They said, “These are your gods, O Israel which brought you up out of the land of Egypt.” (The calf was a chief Egyptian god, with which they were familiar in Egypt). When Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made a proclamation, and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the LORD.” They rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, then rose up to play.

 

Exodus 32:7-10 (KJV)

07 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

08 ‘They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, ‘These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.’ ”

09 And the Lord said unto Moses, “I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff-necked people:

10 Now therefore let me alone, that My wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.”

 

 

Moses besought the LORD his God, and said, “Lord why does Your wrath wax hot against Your People which You have brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

(This is the reply of Moses to God. He knows they were not “cast off”, but only cast aside for a little moment).

Why the Egyptians should speak, and say, ‘For mischief did He bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth?’ Turn from this fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against Your People.

 

Exodus 32:13 (KJV) Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

 

And the LORD repented of the evil which He thought to do to his people.

Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tablets of the testimony were in his hands: the tablets were written on both sides; on the one side and the other were they written. The tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven on the the tablets. When Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, He said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.” He said, “It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.”

And it came to pass, as soon as he came near to the camp , that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands, and broke them beneath the mount. And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it on the fire, and ground it to powder, strawed [masterfully] it on the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it. Moses said to Aaron, “ What did this People do to you, that you have brought so great a sin upon them?” Aaron replied, “Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: you know the People, that they are set on mischief. For they said to me ,’Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses , the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what has become of him.’ And I said to them, ‘Whosoever has any gold, let them break it off.’ So they gave it to me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.’” Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, “”Who is on the LORD’S side? let him come to me.” All the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him.

 

Exodus 32:27 (KJV) And He said unto them, “Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.”

 

The children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the People that day about three thousand men. For Moses had said, “Consecrate yourselves today to the LORD, even everyman upon his son, and upon his brother; that He may bestow a blessing unto you this day.” It came to pass in the morning , that Moses said to the People, “You have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up to the LORD; and possibly I shall make an atonement for your sin.”

Moses returned to the LORD, and said, “This People have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold. Yet now, if You will forgive their sin-; and if not, blot me, I pray You, out of your

book which You have written.”

 

Exodus 32:33-35 (KJV)

33 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.”

35 And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

 

(“When I visit, I will visit”. This is to emphasise the fact that there is such a thing as postponed judgement). Compare Exodus 34:7 (KJV) Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. And the LORD said to Moses, “Depart, and go up here, you and the People which you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, to the land which I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and to Jacob, saying, ‘Unto your seed will I give it:’ I will send an angel before you; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, Hittite, Perizitte, Hivite, and the Jebusite: To a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of you; for you are a stiff-necked People: [Stubborn and arrogant], unless I consume you on the way.” When the People heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and no man put on his ornaments. For the LORD had said to Moses, “Say to the children of Israel, You are a stiff-necked People: I will come up into the midst of you in a moment, and consume you: therefore put off your ornaments from you, that I may know what to do with you.’” And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments by the mount Horeb.

 

Exodus 33:17-23 (KJV)

17 And the Lord said unto Moses, “I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.”

18 And he [Moses] said, “I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.”

19 And He said, “I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.”

20 And He said, “Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.”

21 And the Lord said, “Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:’

22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift [cleft] of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:’

23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.’”

 

 

And the LORD said to Moses, “Hew you two tablets of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tablets the words that were in the first tablets which you broke. And be ready in the morning, and come up to mount Sinai, and present yourself there to Me at the top of the mount. No man shall come up with you, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks or herds feed before that mount.

He hewed two tablets of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up into mount Sinai, as the LORD had commanded him, and took in his hands the two tablets of stone. And the LORD descended in the cloud, and stood with Him there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. And the LORD passed

by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD GOD, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation.”

 

Exodus 34:8—11 (KJV)

08 Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

09 He said, “If I have now found grace in Yout sight, O LORD, let my LORD I pray You, go among us for it is a stiff necked People; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for Thine inheritance.”

10 And He said, “Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the Lord: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.’

11 ‘Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.’”

 

Take heed to yourself, unless you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land where you go, unless it be for a snare in the midst of you: But you shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: For you shall worship no other god: for the LORD whose name is Jealous, is a jealous GOD: Unless you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice to their gods, and someone calls you, and you eat of his sacrifice; And you take of their daughters to your sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make your sons go whoring after their gods. You shall make you no molten gods.

 

Exodus 34:27-28 (KJV)

27 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.”

28 And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables [tablets] the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

 

Exodus 34:29-30 (KJV)

29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables [tablets] of testimony in his hands. When he came down from the mount, Moses wist [knew] not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.

30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh [near to] him.

 

Moses called to them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned to him: Moses then talked with them. And he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in Mount Sinai. Until Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil upon his face. (Shone, radiated, or was glorious, reflected as a mirror the Divine glory. The Roman Catholic Vulgate mistook the Hebrew word Karan to radiate, for Keren, a beam or horn of light. Hence the traditional paintings of Moses with two horns).

Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel together, and said to them, “These are the words which the LORD has commanded, that you should do them. So Moses finished the work. Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. When the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys. But if the cloud were not taken up from over the tabernacle, then they journeyed not until the day it was taken up. For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.

 

THE THIRD BOOK OF MOSES called: - LEVITICUS

 

Therefore, is the Book relating to worship: for only those whom God thus calls does He seek to worship Him.

 

John 4:23 (KJV) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship Him.

 

“Blessed is the man whom Thou chooses, and causest to approach unto YOU, that he may dwell in YOUR courts.”

 

Psalm 65:4 (KJV) Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest, and causest to approach unto Thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house, even of Thy Holy Temple.

 

All of its types relate to worship, as those of Exodus relate to redemption. The Holy Spirit is not once named, though referred to in other books of the Pentateuch, because all here relates to Christ; and it is the Spirit’s work to glorify Christ.

 

John 16:14 (KJV) He shall glorify Me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

 

The whole of Leviticus, and Numbers 1—10:10, come between the first day of the first month and the twentieth day of the second month, on the hypotheses that Israel would forthwith advance and enter the land (Canaan).

 

Numbers 10:11 (KJV) And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle of the testimony.

 

THE FOURTH BOOK OF MOSES CALLED NUMBERS.

 

 

The Book of Numbers is the translation of Greek name in Septuagint, given by man according to his idea of contents. The Title is Bemidbar which means, “In the wilderness”, because it records what took place there; the numberings (1—3 and 26) being only two of the events. It is the book of the sojournings, the fourth book of the Pentateuch.

Four is the number of the earth: hence the types of Numbers, the fourth book are wilderness types [compare the fourth book of the Psalms, 90—106]. Its types of Christ, the Son of Man, are four:-

 

1)     Bread of life.

2)     Water of life.

3)     Lifted up.

4)     The coming star out of Jacob.

 

Numbers 1:1-3 (KJV)

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

2 “Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls;’

3 ‘From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.’”

 

And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers. Moses and Aaron took these men who are expressed by their names (Numbers 1:5—15). These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel. They assembled the entire congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls. As the LORD commanded Moses, so He numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai. The children of Israel, by their generations, after their families, and by the houses of their families, by their polls, every male from twenty years old upward, all that were able to go forth to war. The total number of those going to war were:

Six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty.

But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. For the LORD had spoken to Moses saying, “Only shall you not number the tribe Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel: But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall camp round about the tabernacle. When the tabernacle sets forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death. The children of Israel shall pitch their tents, everyman by his own camp, and everyman by his own standard, throughout their hosts.

But the Levites shall pitch round about the Tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath on the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of destiny.”

 

 

And the children of Israel did according to all the LORD commanded Moses; so did they.

The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “Everyman of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father’s house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch” (Numbers 2:1—2 KJV).

And they departed from the Mount of the LORD three days journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days journey, to search out a resting place for them. When it rested, he said, “Return O Lord, to the many thousands of Israel.” (These two verses are marked Heb MSS, by ‘inverted Nine’; for example the Hebrew letter ? (n) inverted and used as brackets, to indicate that verses 35 & 36 are thus enclosed to indicate that verse 34 should follow verse 36.)

It came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, “Rise up LORD, and let Your enemies be scattered; and let them that hate YOU flee before YOU.” And when it rested, he said, “Return O Lord unto the many thousands of Israel.” And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they went out of the camp.

When the People complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and His anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. The People cried to Moses; and when Moses prayed to the LORD, the fire was quenched. And the LORD said to Moses, “Gather to Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, who you know to be the elders of the People, and the officers over them; and bring them to the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with you. And I will come and talk with you there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon you, and will put it on them; and they shall bear the burden of the People with you, that you bear it not yourself alone.

Say you to the People, ‘Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow, and you shall eat flesh: for you have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, ‘Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt:’ therefore the LORD will give you flesh and you will eat. But you shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days: But even a whole month, until it comes out of your nostrils, and it be loathsome to you: because that you have despised the LORD Which is among you, and have wept before Him, saying, ‘Why came we forth out of Egypt.’”

Moses said, “The People whom among I am, are six hundred thousand footmen; and YOU have said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month. Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice the? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them. And the LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’s hand waxed short? You shall see now whether My word shall come to pass to you or not.”

Moses went out and told the People the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the People, and set them around the tabernacle. The LORD came down in a cloud , and spoke to him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it to the seventy elders; and it came to pass , that when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied and did not cease. (To share Moses’s load).

And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp , and as it were two cubits (3 feet or 1 metre) high upon the earth. While the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the People, and the LORD smote the People with a very great plague. And He called the name of that place Kibroth-hattaavah (means graves of lust): because there they buried the People that lusted.

 

Psalm 78:25-32 (KJV)

25 Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.

26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.

27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:

28 And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.

29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;

30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.

 

(The problem was gluttony. They showed no self-restraint). The LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Send you men that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall you send a man, everyone a ruler among them.” And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran: all those men who were heads of the children of Israel. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua. (Moses sent one man from every tribe to spy out the land of Canaan).

Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, “Get you up this way southward, and go into the mountain: And see the land, what it is; and the people that dwell therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many; And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it is good or bad; and what cities they dwell in, whether in tents or strongholds.; And what the land is, whether it is fat or lean, whether there is wood therein, or not. Be you of great courage, and bring of the fruit of the land.” Now was the time for the first ripe grapes. So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin to Rehob, as men come to Hamath. They ascended by the south, and came into Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshal, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were (there) .

 

(Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt). They came to the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs. They returned from searching of the land after forty days. And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word to them, and to all the congregation, and shew them the fruit of the land. They told him and said , “We came to the land where you sent us, and surely it flowed with milk and honey, and this is the fruit of it. Nevertheless the people are strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.

The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.” Caleb stilled the People before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to

overcome it.” But the men that went up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.” And they brought up an evil report of the land (slanderous lie) which they had searched to the children of Israel, saying, “The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eats up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people we saw in it are men of great stature. There we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”

 

(Giants. Hebrew Nephilim. These are those mentioned in Genesis 6:4 and were all destroyed in the Flood http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thenephilim.htm ; these came from a second irruption of fallen angels, “after that”: i.e. after ‘those days’ The days of Noah).

The entire congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the People wept that night. All the children of Israel moaned against Moses and Aaron: and the whole congregation said to them, “Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in in this wilderness!” And why has the LORD brought us to this land, to fall by the sword, that are wives and children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?”

And they said to one another, “Let us make a captain, and let us return to Egypt.”

Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes: They spoke to all the company of the children of Israel, saying, “The land which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land. If the LORD delight in us, then He will bring us into this land, and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey. Only rebel not you against the LORD, neither fear you the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.”

Defence (Hebrew means shadow “they (are) like our bread (manna from heaven) their shadow has turned aside from off them”. The manna when out of the shade melted, though hard so the heart of their enemies would melt away, not having Jehovah for their shadow, or defence.)

But the entire congregation bid, stone them with stones.

The glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.

 

Numbers 14:11-12 (KJV)

11 And the Lord said unto Moses, “How long will this people provoke Me? And how long will it be ere [before] they believe Me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?”

12 “I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.”

 

Moses said to the LORD, “Then the Egyptians shall hear [of] it, (for YOU brought up this People in YOUR might from among them;) And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that YOU LORD are seen face to face, and YOUR cloud stands over them, and YOU go before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night. Now if YOU shall kill all these People as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of YOU will speak saying, “Because the LORD (of the People of Israel) was not able to bring this people into the land which He swore to them, therefore He has slain them in the wilderness.’ And now, I beseech YOU, let the

power of my LORD be great, according as YOU have spoken, saying, ‘The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation.’

Pardon, I beseech YOU, the iniquity of the People according to the greatness of YOUR mercy, and as YOU have forgiven this people, from Egypt until now.” And the LORD said, “I have pardoned according to your word:

 

Numbers 14:21-23 (KJV)

21 “But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.”

22 “Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice;’

23 ‘Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked Me see it:’”

 

Ten Times. This is not just a round number:-

 

1) At the Red Sea (Ex 14:11—12).

2) At Marah (Ex 15:23—24).

3) Wilderness of Sin (Ex 16:2).

4 & 5) Twice about Manna (Ex16:20 27).

6) At Rephidim (Ex 17:1—3).

7) At Horeb (golden calf) (Ex 32).

8) At Taberah ((Num 11:1).

9) At Kibroth-Hattaavah (Num 11:4).

10) Here at Kedesh Num 14:2).

 

“But My servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed Me fully, him will I bring into the land where he went; and his seed shall possess it.” “How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which moan against Me? I have heard the moaning of the children of Israel, which they murmur against Me. Say to them, ‘As truly as I live saith the LORD, as you have spoken in My ears, so will I do to you: Your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against Me, Doubtless you shall not come into the land, concerning which I swore to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. But your little ones, which you said would be a prey, they will I bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised. But as for you, your carcasses shall fall in the wilderness.

 

Numbers 14:33-37 (KJV)

33 “And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.’

34 ‘After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know My breach of promise.’

35 I the Lord have said, ‘I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against Me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.’

36 ‘And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,’

37 ‘Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord.’”

 

(Here is a simile: from the earthly land which those who wish to hang on to (e.g. Egypt); to those today who wish to tenaciously, hold on to this fallen earth and all its aberrations: or follow Jehovah in faith, to the spiritual world to come). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm

http://godsplan.org.uk/futurekingdom.htm

And your children shall wander in the wilderness for forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until

your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know My breach [obligation] of promise.’ I the LORD have said, “I will surely do it to all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against Me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.” The men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander [lie] on the land. Even those men that did bring up the evil report on the land, died by the plague before the LORD. But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

Moses told these sayings to all the children of Israel and the people mourned greatly.

(And the men who had brought of this evil), they rose up early in the morning, and got them up to the top of the mountain, saying, “Lo, we are here, and will go up to the place which the LORD has promised: for we have sinned.” Moses said, “Why now do you transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper. (When one name or noun is used instead of another, to which it stands in a certain relation. 1.Of the Cause. When the cause is put for the effect (Genesis 23:8. Luke 16:29).

 

Genesis 23:8 (KJV) And he communed with them, saying, “If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight; hear me, and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar,” (Ask of the LORD)

 

Luke 16:29 (KJV) Abraham saith unto him, “They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.”

 

Go not up for the LORD is not among you; you will be smitten before your enemies. For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you shall fall by the sword: because you are turned away from [the protection] of the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.”

But they presumed to go up to the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp. Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwell in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even to Hormah (Destruction).

 

Numbers 15:40-41 (KJV)

40 “That ye may remember, and do all My commandments, and be holy unto your God.”

41 “I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord your God.”

 

And Moses said, “Hereby shall you know that the LORD has sent me to do all the works; for I have not done them of my own mind. If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD has not sent me. But if the LORD makes a new thing, and the earth opens her mouth, and swallows them up, with all that appertain to them, and they go down quick into the pit; then you shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.”

And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave [opened] assunder that was under them: and the earth opened her mouth, swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained to Korah, and all their goods.

They and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed on them: and they perished from among the congregation. And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, “Unless the earth swallow us up also.” And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense. 250 + 14,700

equals 14.950 men. And the LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Speak to Eleazer the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter you the fire yonder; for they are hallowed. The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign to the children of Israel.” Eleazer the priest took the brazen censers, which they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar: To be a memorial to the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses. (Memorial: see structure page 203 Numbers; Companion Bible KJV). But the next day all the congregation of the children of Israel moaned against Moses and against Aaron, saying, “You have killed the People of the LORD.”

It came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the LORD appeared. Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation. The LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment,” And they fell upon their faces.

Moses said to Aaron, “Thake a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put it on the incense, and go quickly to the congregation: and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the Lord the plague has begun.” Aaron took as Moses had commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plagues had begun among the People: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the People’ He stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died about the matter of Korah, (250 + 14,700 = 14,950). Aaron returned to Moses to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was stayed. “And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel : to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.” Out of the twelve staffs that Moses took to the tabernacle of witness; only Aaron’s staff blossomed. Therefore you and your sons with you shall keep your priests office for everything of the altar, and within the veil; and you shall serve: I have given your priests office to you as a service of gift: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.

Then came the children of Israel, even th whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the People abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried. There was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and Aaron.

The People chided Moses, and spoke saying, “Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD! Why have you brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there. And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, vines, or pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink (People then, are much the same today; high on moaning, and low on Faith). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/faith.htm Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared to them. The LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Take the rod, and gather the assembly together, you and Aaron your brother, and speak you to the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and you shall bring forth to them water out of the rock: so you shall give the congregation and their beasts drink.

Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as He commanded him. Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said to them, “Hear now you rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock.” Moses lifted up his hand, and with the rod he smote the rock twice: and the

water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, their beasts also.

 

Numbers 20:12-13 KJV

12 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, “Because ye believed Me not, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.”

13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the Lord, and he was sanctified in them.

 

(Moses did not enter the promised land because of unbelief; hence called rebellion.)

 

Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom, “Thus says your brother Israel, You know all the travel that has befallen us: Let us pass, I pray you through your country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of water of the wells: we will go by the king’s highway, we will not turn right or left, until we have passed your borders. And Edom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edom said to him, “You shall not pass by me, or else I will come out against you with the sword.” And the children of Israel said to him, “We will go by the highway: and if I and my cattle drink of your water, then I will pay for it: I will only, without doing anythingelse, go through on my feet.”And he said, “You shall not go through.” And Edom came out against him, with much people and a strong hand. Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: this is why Israel turned away from him.The whole congregation journeyed from Kadesh, and came to mount Hor.

 

Numbers 20:23-26 (KJV)

23 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying,

24 “Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against My word at the water of Meribah.’

25 ‘Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor:’

26 ‘And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall die there.’”

 

“The death of Aaron coincides with the end of the wanderings. The house of Israel: is one of the thirteen occurrences of the expression before the division of the two kingdoms; Samaria and Judea.)

Moses did as the Lord commanded: and they went up into Mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them on Eleazer his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: Moses and Eleazer came down from the mount. When all the congregation saw (understood) that Aaron was dead, they mourned for him thirty days even all the house of Israel.

Now when king Arad the Canaanite who dwelt in the south, heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies then he fought against Israel. and took some of them prisoners. Israel vowed a vow to the LORD, and said, “If You will indeed deliver this people into my hand , then I will utterly destroy their cities.” The LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah.

(While the loss of innocent life is something that is to be deplored, the situation must be understood with the following background in mind. The nation Israel was chosen to be a witness to the world of the true and living God. The Israelites were to live in the Promised Land surrounded by the heathen nations, yet they were not to be influenced by the other nations' religions. God instructed His people that they were not to take to themselves any of the elements of the false pagan religions. The Promised Land in which the Israelites were to settle was populated by the Canaanites who had corrupted and perverted God's truth. They had corrupted themselves to the place where they were beyond saving. Had any been permitted to live, they would have infected Israel with their moral depravity)

They then journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red Sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the souls of the people was much discouraged (grieved or impatient) because of the way. The LORD sent fiery serpents among the People, they bit the People; and much People of Israel died. Therefore the People came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned for we have spoken against the LORD, and against you; pray to the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us.” Moses prayed for the People. The LORD said to Moses, “Make you a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole, and it shall come to pass, that everyone that is bitten, when he shall look upon it shall live.” Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it on a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass he lived.

New Testament, recorded from old:

 

John 12:32 (KJV) “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me.”

 

(This is another part of the O.T. that merges with the N.T. Christ Himself states that when He is

lifted up from this [fallen]earth, He will draw all men to Him. This image is a mirror of Christ dying on a pole above, and shows that the pole itself is not a crucifix, with a smaller piece of timber across the top. This represents, that anyone who honestly looks upon this image; shall live. Christ died to save us, and show us His people the way back to God).

 

Genesis 3:15 (KJV) “And I will put enmity between thee [Satan] and the woman [Eve], and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise [crush] thy head, and thou shalt bruise His heel.”

 

Acts 5:30 (KJV) ‘The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.’

 

Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying “Let me pass through your land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters of the well; but we will go along by the king’s highway, until we are past your borders.” And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz and fought against Israel. Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon to Jabbok, even to the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong. Israel took all these cities: and dwelt in the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof. For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even to Arnon.

Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. Moses then sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages thereof, and drove out the Amorites that were there. They turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle at Edrel. And the LORD said to Moses, “Fear him not: for I have delivered him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.” So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was none left alive: and they possessed his land. The children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side of Jordan by Jericho. Balak the son of Zippor saw all that the Israelites had done to the Amorites. And Moab was sore afraid of the People because they were many: Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel. Moab said to the elders of Midian, “Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licks up the grass of the field.” Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at the time.

He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him saying, “Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt; they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me: (Balaam: So written after the Greek. In Hebrew his name is Bilam. He was a spiritist or medium. He is identified by Sayce with Bela, [Gen 36:21—32], where Moses incorporates a list of Edomite kings. According to the Tel-el-Amarna tablets he was a Hittite chieftain, who established a kingdom for himself: and he died fighting against Israel by the side of his Midianite allies).

 

Joshua 13:22 (KJV) Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them.

 

Come now therefore, I pray you, curse me this People; for they are too mighty for me: if I should prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I know for he whom you blesses is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.” And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination [money which procures it] in their hand; and they came to Balaam, and spoke to him the words of Balak. And he said to them, “ Lodge

here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak to me:” and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam. God came to Balaam, and said, “What men are these with you?” Balaam said to God, “Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, had sent to me saying, ‘There is a People come out of Egypt, which covers the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; if I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out.’” And God said to Balaam, “You shall not go with them; you shall not curse the People: for they are blessed.” Balaam rose up in the morning , and said to the princes of Balak, “Get you into your land: for the LORD refuses to give me leave to go with you.” The princes of Moab rose up, and they went to Balak, and said, “Balaam refuses to come with us.” Balak said to Balaam, “What has the LORD spoken?”

 

Numbers 23:18-24 (KJV)

18 And he took up his parable, and said, “Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:’

19 ‘God is not a man,  that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?’

20 ‘Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and He hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.’

21 ‘He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath He seen perverseness in Israel: the Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a KING is among them.’

22 ‘God brought them out of Egypt; He hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.’

23 ‘Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination [money] against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!’

24 ‘Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.’

 

Balaam said to Balek, “Spoke I not also to your messengers which you sent to me, saying, ‘If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do either good or bad of my own mind; but what the LORD says that will I speak?’ And now, behold, I go to my people: come therefore, and I will advise you what this people will do to your People in the latter days.”

 

Numbers 24:15-24 (KJV)

15 And he took up his parable, and said, “Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:’

16 He hath said, ‘which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:’

17 ‘I shall see Him, but not now: I shall behold Him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.’

18 ‘And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.’

19 ‘Out of Jacob shall come He that shall have dominion, and shall destroy Him that remaineth of the city.’”

20 And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end shall be that he perish for ever.’

21 And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, “Strong is thy dwelling place, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock.”

22 ‘Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive.’

23 And he took up his parable, and said, ‘Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!’

24 ‘And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever.’”

 

Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. They called the People to the sacrifices of their gods: and the People did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself to Baal-peor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

 

Numbers 25:4-5 KJV

4 “The LORD said to Moses, “Take all the heads of the People, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.”

5 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, “Slay ye everyone his men that were joined unto Baal-peor.”

 

(Baal-peor: Baal means Lord; and Peor was the mountain on which he was worshipped (Numbers 25:18 & Joshua 22:17) Baal was a Moabitish idol, and those who called the Israelites were the prostitutes necessary for his worship by others. Peor also means “opening” and may have relation to this “worship.”)

 

(Heads: i.e. princes or chiefs of the People. The number of those taken were not numbered here, but must have been a thousand, and included in the twenty four thousands of verse 9, and excluded in 1 Cor 10:8, they fell in one day: the day of the plague, Verses 9.18. And those who were hanged prior to that are not included. Hang them up: means impaled or nailed to a stake as in crucifixion. The Vulgate renders it “crucify” which means the same thing.)

 

(To those who do not study God’s Word; this may seem heartless, and to the extreme, from a compassionate, loving God such as Jehovah. However, it must really be recognised for what it is: History indicates that the People of Israel were not led into the land of milk and honey to conquer their enemies, but to live among them, and forsake all other gods and practices of the other residents in the land. To show to others the perfectness of the One True God they worship.)

 

And the LORD spoke to Moses saying, “Vex the Midianites, and smite them: For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor’s sake.”

 

Numbers 26:1-4 (KJV)

1 And it came to pass after the plague, that the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,

2 “Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from twenty years old and upward, throughout their fathers' house, all that are able to go to war in Israel.”

3 And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,

4 “Take the sum of the people, from twenty years old and upward; as the Lord commanded Moses and the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt.”

 

Numbers 26:52-56 KJV

52 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

53 “Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names.’

54 ‘To many thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to few thou shalt give the less inheritance: to every one shall his inheritance be given according to those that were numbered of him.’

55 ‘Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.’

56 ‘According to the lot shall the possession thereof be divided between many and few.’”

 

Numbers 27:12-14 (KJV)

12 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.”

13 “And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.”

14 “For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.”

 

Moses spoke to the LORD, saying, “Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, who may go in before them, and who may lead them out, and who may bring them in: that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.” And the LORD said to Moses, “Take you Joshua the son of Nun, a man in who is the spirit, and lay your hand on him;

Set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight. Thou shall put some of your honour on him, that all the children of Israel may be obedient.

He shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgement of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.”

And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation: he laid his hands on him, and gave him charge as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

 

And the LORD spoke to Moses saying,

 

Numbers 31:2-4 (KJV)

2 “Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.”

3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, “Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the Lord of Midian.”

4 “Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.”

 

The journey of the children of Israel which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron Chapter 33.

 

The LORD spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,

“Peak to the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘When you are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; then shall you drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and their molten images. and pull down all their high places: And you shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it. If you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which you let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land where you dwell. Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do to you, as I thought to do to them.”

And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

“Command the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘When you come into the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof: For borders see Numbers 34).

 

Numbers 35:9-12 (KJV)

09 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

11 Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any person at unawares.

12 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment.

 

(Avenger: Hebrew Goel means to redeem, to ransom. Goel, when used in this connection means to avenge bloodshed, as here, both were the duties of the next of kin, the kinsman. Our Goel not only redeems us from all evil, but avenges us of all our enemies.)

 

Romans 8:31-34 (KJV)

31 “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?’

32 ‘He that spared not his own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall hH not with Him also freely give us all things?’

33 ‘Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.’

34 ‘Who is He that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.’”

 

THE FIFTH BOOK OF MOSES,

CALLED

DEUTERONOMY.

 

The LORD our God spoke to us in Horeb, saying, “You have dwelt long enough in this mount: ‘Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and to the places near there, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, to the great river Euphrates.’ Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to their seed and to their seed after them.’”

 

Deuteronomy 1:9-10 (KJV)

09 And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone:

10 The Lord your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye are this day as the stars of heaven for multitude.

 

(The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as you are, and bless you, as He has promised you!)

I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you shall soon utterly perish from off the land where you go over Jordan to possess it; you shall not prolong your days on it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and you shall be left few in number among the heathen, where the LORD shall lead you. There you will serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, hear, or smell. But if from then you shall seek the LORD your God, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn to the LORD your God, and shall be obedient to his voice; (For the LORD your God is a merciful God); He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.

“God created man upon this [fallen] earth, and ask from the one side of heaven to the other, whether there has been any such thing as this great thing is, or has been heard like it?

Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard and lived? Or has God assayed [analysed] to go and take Him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, by war, and a mighty hand, by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes? To you it was shown, that you might know that the LORD, He is God; there is none else besides Him. Out of heaven He made you to hear His voice, that He might instruct you: and on earth He showed you His great fire; and you heard His words out of the midst of that fire. And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their seed after them, and brought you out in His sight with His mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before you greater and mightier than you are, to bring you in, to give you their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in your heart, that the LORD He is God in heaven above, and on the earth beneath: there is none else.

You shall keep therefore His statutes, and His commandments, which I command you this day, that it may go well with you, and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days on the earth, which the LORD your God gave you, forever.”

Then Moses severed three cities on this side of Jordan toward the sunrising (east); So that the slayer might flee there, which should kill his neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing to one of these cities he might live: Namely, Bezer, Ramoth, and Golan.

(See the Ten Commandments): http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Decalogueinscripture.htm

When the LORD your God shall bring you into the land where you go to possess it (land of milk and honey), and have cast out many nations before you, the Hittites, Gergeshites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations mightier than you; (Nations: Ten altogether are mentioned by name, here in this verse seven only. Other lists name six, Girgashites are generally omitted. In the days of Ezra (9:1) five were still in the land. In the Tel-el-Amarna Tablets, eight are named).

When the LORD your God shall deliver them before you;

You shall smite them, and utterly destroy them; you will make no covenant with them, nor show them any mercy: Neither shall you make marriages with them; your daughter shall not give to his son, nor his daughter shall you take to your son. For they will turn away your son from following Me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy you suddenly. But thus shall you deal with them, you shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

For you are a holy People to the LORD your God: the Lord your God has chosen you to be a special people to Himself, above all people that ar on the face earth.

 

Deuteronomy 7:6—12 (KJV)

06 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

07 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:

08 But because the Lord loved you, and because He would keep the oath which He had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt?

09 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations;

10 And repayeth them that hate Him to their face, to destroy them: He will not be slack to Him that hateth him, He will repay him to his face.

11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.

12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which He sware unto thy fathers:

 

Hear, O Israel:

 

You are to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than yourselves, cities great and fenced up to heaven. A People great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom you know, and of whom you have heard say, ‘Who can stand before the children of Anak!’ (Anakims: The descendants of Anak, the progeny of the second irruption of fallen angels). https://levendwater.org/companion/append25.html (The progeny of the fallen angels with the daughters of Adam are called in Genesis 6 Ne-phil-im, which means fallen ones (from nāphal, to fall) What these things were can be gathered only from Scripture. They were evidently great in size, as well as great in wickedness. They were superhuman, abnormal beings; and their destruction was necessary for the preservation of the human race, and for the faithfulness of Jehovah’s Word). http://www.godsplan.org.uk/thenephilim.htm

 

Understand therefore this day,

 

that the LORD your God is He which goes over before you; as a consuming fire He shall destroy them, and He shall bring them down before your face: so shall you drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD as said to you.

Speak not you in your heart, after that the LORD your God has cast them out from before you, saying, ‘For my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land:’ but for the wickedness of nations the LORD does drive them out from before you. Not for your righteousness, or for the uprightness of your heart, do you go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD your God does drive them out from before you, that He may perform the word which the LORD swore unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

 

·        Understand therefore, that the LORD your God gives you not this good land to possess it for your righteousness; for you are a stiff necked [stubborn] People.

 

·        Remember, and forget not, how you provoked the LORD your God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that you did depart out of the land of Egypt, until you came to this place, you have been rebellious aginst the LORD.

 

Deuteronomy 10:12-14 KJV)

12 And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear [revere] the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,

13 To keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?

14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the Lord's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.

 

Circumcise (metaphorically) therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff necked. For the LORD your God is God of gods, and LORD of lords, a great GOD, a mighty, and a terrible, Which regards not persons, nor takes reward: You shall fear the LORD your God; Him shall you serve, and to Him shall you cleave, and sware by His name. He is your praise, and He is your God, that has done for you these great and terrible things, which your eyes have seen. Your fathers went down into Egypt with three score and ten persons; and now the LORD your God has made you as the stars of heaven for multitude.

 

Deuteronomy 11:1 (KJV) ‘Therefore thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and keep His charge, and His statutes, and His judgments, and His commandments, alway.’

 

Deuteronomy 11:8-12 (KJV)

08 Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;

09 And that ye may prolong your days in the land, which the Lord sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

10 For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst it with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:

11 But the land, whither ye go to possess it, is a land of hills and valleys, and drinketh water of the rain of heaven:

12 A land which the Lord thy God careth for: the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God; which I command you this day: And a curse, if you will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after gods which you have not known.

 

Deuteronomy 34:1-7 (KJV)

1 And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the Lord shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,

2 And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh {North], and all the land of Judah [South], unto the utmost sea,

3 And the south and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.

4 And the Lord said unto him, “This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither”.

5 So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.

6 And He [the LORD] buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

 

The children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the mourning for Moses were ended.

 

Deuteronomy 34:8-12 (KJV)

08 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.

09 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses.

10 And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,

11 In all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,

12 And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.

 

(He, [the LORD] buried Moses. Jehovah buried Moses. Said of no other. Hence, when raised for the transfiguration, Satan, who has the power of death (Heb 2:14), “contended” with Michael about his body, Jude 9. So God has buried the Law for those who, being ‘in Christ,’ have died and are dead to the Law. Cp Rom 6:2, 6-8 with 7: 1-5, 6 (margin of the Companion Bible KJV).

The mourning lasted from the 30th day of the 11th month (Sebat) until the 29th (and last) day of the the 12th month (Adar) Thus the forty years were completed to the wandering in the wilderness; from the 1st Abib, 1491B.C. Sabbath day's journey. About 2,000 English yards.
