00:16 Hi, and welcome to His Words Are Life
00:19 I'm Kelly Mowrer, and today we are going to be reading
00:21 about the wanderings and the journeys
00:23 of the children of Israel in the wilderness.
00:25 And I think everyone of us at some point in our lives
00:28 knows loneliness or trial, and sometimes we think
00:32 of it and referring it to a desert or a wandering
00:36 in the desert. But the Bible tells us that the words of God
00:39 can be a light to our path. And so,
00:41 for those of you who are watching today
00:43 and perhaps feeling a bit dark and wilderness-like
00:48 in your life right now, I trust these words will bring comfort
00:51 to you. Before we start, let's pray together.
00:53 Dear Jesus, thank you so much for sending Your words of life.
00:58 to be a light to us and to firm up the path that we walk on.
01:02 Please walk with now as we read Your word. Send the Holy Spirit
01:06 to teach us the lessons You wish for us to learn.
01:08 We love You so much and thank You for loving us. Amen.
01:11 We're starting in the book of Numbers, in verse 42 of
01:16 chapter 32 and then we'll go right on into chapter 33
01:21 But we're picking up with just that last verse of chapter 32.
01:24 And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof,
01:28 and called it Nobah, after his own name.
01:30 Continuing now in Numbers, chapter 33.
01:34 This is the King James Version.
01:36 These are the journeys of the children of Israel,
01:39 which went forth our of the land of Egypt with their armies
01:42 under the hand of Moses and Aaron. And Moses wrote
01:45 their goings out according to their journeys
01:47 by the commandment of the Lord: and these are their journeys
01:50 according to their goings out. And they departed from Rameses
01:53 in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month
01:56 on the morrow after the Passover the children of Israel went out
02:00 with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians.
02:02 For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the Lord
02:06 had smitten among them: upon their gods also the Lord
02:10 executed judgments. And the children of Israel removed
02:13 from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth. And they departed
02:16 from Succoth, and pitched in Etham which is in the edge of
02:19 the wilderness. And they removed from Etham,
02:21 and turned again unto Pihahiroth which is before Baalzephon:
02:26 and they pitched before Migdol. And they departed from before
02:30 Pihahiroth, and passed through the midst of the sea
02:32 into the wilderness, and went three day's journey
02:34 in the wilderness of Etham, and pitched in Marah.
02:37 And they removed from Marah, and came to Elim: and in Elim
02:42 were twelve fountains of water, and threescore and ten palm
02:46 trees: and they pitched there. And they removed from Elim,
02:50 and encamped by the Red Sea. And in Numbers 33,
02:55 verses 11 and on down to verse 37 is recorded all the different
03:02 places that they wandered and stopped and pitched their tents,
03:05 and wandered again. So we're going to skip over all of those
03:08 different names and picking up again now in Numbers 33,
03:13 verse 38, King James Version.
03:15 And Aaron the priest went up into Mount Hor
03:20 at the commandment of the Lord, and died there, in the 40th year
03:25 after the children of Israel were come out of the land
03:27 of Egypt, in the first day of the fifth month.
03:31 And Aaron was an hundred and twenty and three years old
03:34 when he died in mount Hor. And king Arad the Canaanite,
03:39 which dwelt in the south, in the land of Canaan,
03:41 heard of the coming of the children of Israel.
03:43 And they departed from mount Hor, and pitched in Zalmonah,
03:47 And they departed from Zalmonah, and pitched in Punon.
03:50 and continuing on we skip down again to verse 50
03:56 skipping again all of the different departings
03:59 and pitchings of their tents, picking up in Numbers 33
04:03 verse 50. And the Lord spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab
04:07 by Jordan near Jericho, saying, Speak unto the children of
04:10 Israel and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan
04:14 into the land of Canaan; Then ye shall drive out all
04:18 the inhabitants of the land from before you,
04:20 and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten
04:25 images, and quite pluck down all their high places:
04:30 And ye shall disposses the inhabitants of the land,
04:34 and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess
04:38 it. And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance
04:42 among your families: and to the more ye shall give
04:46 the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less
04:49 inheritance: every man's inheritance shall be in the
04:52 place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of
04:56 your fathers ye shall inherit. But if ye will not drive out
05:01 the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall
05:05 come to pass that those which ye let remain of them
05:09 shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides,
05:12 and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
05:16 Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you,
05:20 as I thought to do unto them. Picking up in Numbers chapter 34
05:27 of the King James Version. And the Lord spake unto Moses,
05:32 saying, Command the children of Israel, and say unto them,
05:35 When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that
05:39 shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land
05:41 of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)
05:43 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin
05:47 along by the coast of Edom, and your south border
05:51 shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:
05:54 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of
05:58 Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof
06:02 shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea,
06:04 and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:
06:08 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon
06:11 unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be
06:14 at the sea. And as for the western border,
06:17 ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your
06:20 west border. And this shall be your north border:
06:23 from the great sea ye shall point out for you Mount Hor:
06:27 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border
06:30 unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the
06:32 border shall be to Zedad: And the border shall go on
06:37 to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan:
06:40 this shall be your north border. And ye shall point out your east
06:45 border from Hazarenan to Shepham and the coast shall go down
06:51 from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain; and the border
06:54 shall descend and shall reach unto the side of the sea of
06:57 Chinnereth eastward: And the border shall go down to Jordan,
07:01 and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea:
07:04 this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about.
07:08 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying,
07:11 This is the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the Lord
07:15 commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:
07:18 For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house
07:22 of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad
07:25 According to the house of their fathers, have received their
07:28 inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their
07:31 inheritance: The two tribes and the half tribe have received
07:35 their inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward,
07:39 toward the sun rising. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
07:43 These are the names of the men which shall divide the land
07:47 unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.
07:52 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land
07:57 by inheritance. And again we're going to skip verses 19
08:03 all the way down to verse 28. And we'll pick up with verse 29.
08:11 Because in the verses that we just skipped are the names of
08:15 all the different men of the tribes - the various tribes
08:20 who the lots were being cast for and by. These are they
08:26 whom the Lord commanded to divide the inheritance
08:29 unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
08:33 Picking up now in chapter 35. And the Lord spake unto Moses
08:38 in the plains of Moab, by Jordan near Jericho, saying,
08:41 Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites
08:45 of the inheritance of their possession, cities to dwell in;
08:49 and ye shall give also unto the Levites suburbs for the cities
08:53 round about them. And the cities shall they have to dwell
08:57 in; and the suburbs of them shall be for their cattle,
08:59 and for their goods, and for all their beasts.
09:01 And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the
09:04 Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city and outward
09:08 a thousand cubits round about. And ye shall measure from
09:11 without the city on the east side two thousand cubits,
09:14 and on the south side, two thousand cubits,
09:17 and on the west side, two thousand cubits,
09:19 and on the north side two thousand cubits.
09:21 And the city shall be in the midst: this shall be to them
09:26 the suburbs of the cities. And among the cities
09:29 which ye shall give unto the Levites there shall be six
09:32 cities for refuge which ye shall appoint for the manslayer
09:36 that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty
09:40 and two cities. So all the cities which ye shall give to
09:44 the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give
09:49 with their suburbs. And the cities which ye shall give
09:52 shall be of the possession of the children of Israel:
09:55 from them that have many ye shall give many; but from them
10:00 that have few ye shall give few: every one shall give of his
10:04 cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance
10:07 which he inherited. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
10:11 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
10:13 When ye be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;
10:17 Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge
10:22 for you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth
10:26 any person at unawares. And they shall be unto you cities
10:31 for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not,
10:34 until he stand before the congregation in judgment.
10:38 And of these cities which ye shall give, six cities shall ye
10:42 have for refuge. Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan
10:47 and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan,
10:50 which shall be cities of refuge, these six cities
10:55 shall be a refuge, both for the children of Israel and for the
10:58 stranger, and for the sojourner among them:
11:01 that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee
11:05 thither. And if he smite him with an instrument of iron,
11:09 so that he die, he is a murderer, the murderer
11:13 shall surely be put to death. And if he smite him with
11:17 throwing a stone wherewith he may die, and he die,
11:20 he is a murderer: and the murderer shall surely be
11:24 put to death. Or if he smite him with an hand weapon
11:27 of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die, he is a murderer:
11:33 the murderer shall surly be put to death. The revenger of blood
11:38 himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him,
11:42 he shall slay him. But if he thrust him of hatred,
11:46 or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he may die;
11:49 or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die:
11:53 he that smote him shall surely be put to death;
11:57 for he is a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay
12:02 the murderer, when he meeteth him. But if he thrust him
12:05 suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing
12:09 without laying of wait, or with any stone, wherewith a man
12:13 may die, seeing him not, and cast it upon him, that he die,
12:17 and was not his enemy, neither sought his harm:
12:20 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer
12:23 and the revenger of blood, according to these judgments:
12:26 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer
12:30 out of the hand of the revenger of blood, and the congregation
12:33 shall restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled:
12:37 and he shall abide in it until the death of the high priest,
12:40 which was anointed with the holy oil. But if the slayer shall
12:44 at any time come without the border of the city of his refuge
12:48 whither he was fled; and the revenger of blood find him
12:52 without the borders of the city of his refuge, and the revenger
12:56 of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood:
12:59 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge
13:03 until the death of the high priest: but after the death
13:06 of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land
13:09 of his possession. So these things shall be for a statute
13:14 of judgment unto you throughout your generations
13:16 in all your dwellings. Whoso killeth any person, the murderer
13:21 shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses:
13:23 but one witness shall not testify against any person
13:26 to cause him to die. Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction
13:31 for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death:
13:33 but he shall be surely put to death. And ye shall take no
13:37 satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge,
13:40 that he should come again to dwell in the land,
13:43 until the death of the priest. So ye shall not pollute the land
13:46 wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land
13:51 cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein,
13:53 but by the blood of him that shed it.
13:55 Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit,
14:00 wherein I dwell: for I the Lord dwell among
14:03 the children of Israel. Continuing with Numbers
14:06 chapter 36. And the chief fathers of the families of
14:10 the children of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh,
14:13 of the families of the sons of Joseph, came near and spake
14:17 before Moses, and before the princes, the chief fathers
14:20 of the children of Israel: And they said, The Lord commanded
14:23 my Lord to give the land for an inheritance by lot
14:26 to the children of Israel: and my lord was commanded
14:29 by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad
14:32 our brother unto his daughters.
