JBF Commentary Numbers 3:40-51

Number all the first-born of the males of the children of Israel, etc.
The principle on which the enumeration of the Levites had been made was now to be applied to the other tribes.

The number of their male children, from a month old and upward, was to be reckoned, in order that a comparison might be instituted with that of the Levites, for the formal adoption of the latter as substitutes for the first-born.

The Levites, amounting to twenty-two thousand, were given in exchange for an equal number of the first-born from the other tribes, leaving an excess of two hundred seventy-three; and as there were no substitutes for these, they were redeemed at the rate of five shekels for each (Num_18:15, Num_18:16).

Every Israelite would naturally wish that his son might be redeemed by a Levite without the payment of this tax, and yet some would have to incur the expense, for there were not Levites enough to make an equal exchange.

Jewish writers say the matter was determined by lot, in this manner: Moses put into an urn twenty-two thousand pieces of parchment, on each of which he wrote “a son of Levi,” and two hundred seventy-three more, containing the words, “five shekels.”

These being shaken, he ordered each of the first-born to put in his hand and take out a slip. If it contained the first inscription, the boy was redeemed by a Levite; if the latter, the parent had to pay.

The ransom-money, which, reckoning the shekel at half a crown, would amount to $2.50 each, was appropriated to the use of the sanctuary.

The excess of the general over the Levitical first-born is so small, that the only way of accounting for it is, by supposing those first-born only were counted as were males remaining in their parents’ household, or that those first-born only were numbered which had been born since the departure from Egypt, when God claimed all the first-born as his special property.

The LORD God came down in the pillar of the cloud and spoke to both Moses and Miriam

But with Moses, God spoke to Moses mouth to mouth, not in dreams and visions as he did prophets and prophetesses. God had placed Moses in authority above both his brother Aaron and his sister Miriam.


[B]MHCC Commentary Numbers 12:1-9

The patience of Moses was tried in his own family, as well as by the people. The pretence was, that he had married a foreign wife; but probably their pride was hurt, and their envy stirred up, by his superior authority.

Opposition from our near relations, and from religious friends, is most painful. But this is to be looked for, and it will be well if in such circumstances we can preserve the gentleness and meekness of Moses.

Moses was thus fitted to the work he was called to. God not only cleared Moses, but praised him. Moses had the spirit of prophecy in a way which set him far above all other prophets; yet he that is least in the kingdom of heaven, is greater than he; and our Lord Jesus infinitely excels him, Heb_3:1. Let Miriam and Aaron consider whom it was they insulted. We have reason to be afraid of saying or doing any thing against the servants of God.

And those are presumptuous indeed who are not afraid to speak evil of dignities, 2Pe_2:10. The removal of God's presence is the surest and saddest token of God's displeasure. Woe to us, if he depart! he never departs, till by sin and folly we drive him from us.


(Num 12:9 KJV) And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.

(Num 12:10 KJV) And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

The plague of Leprous came upon Miriam, Moses sister because she spoke against Moses and sinned.


(Num 12:11 KJV) And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned.

(Num 12:12 KJV) Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.

(Num 12:13 KJV) And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
Moses cried unto God and asked God to heal his sister.

(Num 12:14 KJV) And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again.

God would heal Miriam after 7 days and she would be let back into the camp. Those with the plague of Leprosy were to be outside of the camp for 7 days (Lev 13:2-4).


(Num 12:15 KJV) And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

(Num 12:16 KJV) And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.

Chapter 14

God had bought them to a good place for their land. A land of milk and honey, but they had spread a bad report of the land and spread it amongst the people of Israel.

(Num 14:3 KJV) And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

The unbelief of the congregation of Israel. They did not believe in the promise of God after they had heard the bad report of 11 who spied the land.

Israel faced a strong enemy. They did not trust in God to deliver them from their enemies and into the promised land.


(Num 14:4 KJV) And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.

(Num 14:7 KJV) And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

Joshua and Caleb spoke in favour of the land. For God had bought them to a good land for them to live in.

(Num 14:9 KJV) Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye 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.

Rebellion against God would be appointing another captain and turning back in unbelief of Gods promise and returning to the Egypt, the place where God had bought them out of slavery.

Moses had not forgotten how the Lord had delivered them from slavery in Egypt. God had led them out of Egypt and sent the cloud to lead them by day and a pillar of fire by night.


(Num 14:15 KJV) Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

MHCC Commentary Numbers 14:40-45

Some of the Israelites were now earnest to go forward toward Canaan. But it came too late.

If men would but be as earnest for heaven while their day of grace lasts, as they will be when it is over, how well would it be for them!

That which has been duty in its season, when mistimed, may be turned into sin.

Those who are out of the way of their duty, are not under God's protection, and go at their peril.

God bade them go, and they would not; he forbade them, and they would go. Thus is the carnal mind enmity against God.

They had distrusted God's strength; they now presume upon their own without his.

And the expedition fails accordingly; now the sentence began to be executed, that their carcases should fall in the wilderness.

That affair can never end well, which begins with sin.

The way to obtain peace with our friends, and success against our enemies, is, to have God, as our Friend, and to keep in his love.

Let us take warning from the fate of Israel, lest we perish after the same example of unbelief.

Let us go forth, depending on God's mercy, power, promise, and truth; he will be with us, and bring our souls to everlasting rest.


(Num 14:41 KJV) And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.

(Num 14:44 KJV) But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

Presumed H6075. 'aphal, aw-fal'; a prim. root; to swell; fig. be elated:--be lifted up, presume.

In disobedience they remained and were defeated, because they trusted in their own strength and wisdom and not of God. God was not with them and they perished.

Chapter 16

250 leaders and appointed members of the council of Israel rise up against Aaron and Moses.

(Num 16:1 KJV) Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:

(Num 16:2 KJV) And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:

The 250 princes (leaders) were declaring who was Holy and who were not as they challenged Moses and Aaron, Gods appointed leadership. They were not rebelling against just Aaron and Moses, but also God. Moses and Aaron spoke the word of God to the princes of Israel.

During the time of Moses, this was rebellion against God ‘s appointed leadership. It was rebellion against Gods judgement and it was rebellion against the will of God.

Moses fell on his face before God, possibly knowing the judgment that would come becuase of Israels sin and rebellion.


(Num 16:5 KJV) And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will show who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him.

(Num 16:9 KJV) Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?

(Num 16:10 KJV) And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?

(Num 16:12 KJV) And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:

In disobedience, they did not come up when Moses sent for them.


(Num 16:13 KJV) Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?

They thought it was Moses will that the nation of Israel be led to the border of the promised land, so they would perish there and Moses and Aaron would rule over them in the desert.

God had already judged Israel and spoken to Moses that Israel would wander the desert for 40 years in the desert and some would not enter into the promised land but would perish in the desert. This was because of their unbelief.


(Num 16:14 KJV) Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.

They refused to come up and refused to obey Moses who was the appointed leaders over them by God. They blamed Moses, but it was because of their own unbelief they were not able to enter the promised land.

(Num 16:19 KJV) And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation.

The glory of God appeared before the congregation.

Glory H3519. kabowd, kaw-bode'; rarely kabod, kaw-bode'; from H3513; prop. weight; but only fig. in a good sense, splendor or copiousness:--glorious (-ly), glory, honour (-able).


(Num 16:20 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

(Num 16:21 KJV) Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.

God was going to destroy them for their sin and rebellion.


(Num 16:22 KJV) And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?

(Num 16:23 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

(Num 16:24 KJV) Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

(Num 16:35 KJV) And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

The appointed leaders who sinned were not sparred from the Judgement of God for their sin and rebellion.


(Num 16:36 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

(Num 16:44 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

(Num 16:45 KJV) Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a
moment. And they fell upon their faces.

God was going to destroy them as well for their sin and rebellion.


(Num 16:46 KJV) And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun.

Numbers Chapter 17

(Num 17:1 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

The selection of a rod to decide who is right

(Num 17:6 KJV) And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.

JBF Commentary Numbers 17:2-5

Speak unto the children of Israel — The controversy with Moses and Aaron about the priesthood was of such a nature and magnitude as required a decisive and authoritative settlement.

For the removal of all doubts and the silencing of all murmuring in the future regarding the holder of the office, a miracle was wrought of a remarkable character and permanent duration; and in the manner of performing it, all the people were made to have a direct and special interest.

take of every one ... princes ... twelve rods — As the princes, being the oldest sons of the chief family, and heads of their tribes, might have advanced the best claims to the priesthood, if that sacred dignity was to be shared among all the tribes, they were therefore selected, and being twelve in number - that of Joseph being counted only one - Moses was ordered to see that the name of each was inscribed - a practice borrowed from the Egyptians - upon his rod or wand of office.

The name of Aaron rather than of Levi was used, as the latter name would have opened a door of controversy among the Levites; and as there was to be one rod only for the head of each tribe, the express appointment of a rod for Aaron determined him to be the head of that tribe, as well as that branch or family of the tribe to which the priestly dignity should belong.

These rods were to be laid in the tabernacle close to the ark (compare Num_17:10 and Heb_9:4), where a divine token was promised that would for all time terminate the dispute.


(Num 17:7 KJV) And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle of witness.

(Num 17:8 KJV) And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.

The sign of God. Overnight Aaron’s rod had blossomed and produced almonds. A miraculous sign, for how can a Rod blossom and produce almonds overnight.


(Num 17:9 KJV) And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod.

(Num 17:10 KJV) And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not.

Token H226. 'owth, oth; prob. from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (lit. or fig.), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.:--mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.


(Num 17:11 KJV) And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.

(Num 17:12 KJV) And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.

(Num 17:13 KJV) Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?

Aaron and his sons duty as priests.

Numbers Chapter 20

(Num 20:1 KJV) Then came the children of Israel, even the 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.

Miriam, Aarons and Moses sister, the prophetess died there and was buried.


(Num 20:2 KJV) And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

(Num 20:3 KJV) And the people chided with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!

Chided H7378. riyb, reeb; or ` ruwb, roob; a prim. root; prop. to toss, i.e. grapple; mostly fig. to wrangle, i.e. hold a controversy; (by impl.) to defend:--adversary, chide, complain, contend, debate, X ever, X lay wait, plead, rebuke, strive, X thoroughly.

Died H1478. gava', gaw-vah'; a prim. root; to breathe out, i.e. (by impl.) expire:--die, be dead, give up the ghost, perish.


(Num 20:4 KJV) And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?

The people grumbled against Moses and blamed Moses for bringing them out of Egypt. But Moses had only obeyed and done what God had instructed him to do.


(Num 20:5 KJV) And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

Pomegranates H7416. rimmown, rim-mone'; or rimmon, rim-mone'; from H7426; a pomegranate, the tree (from its upright growth) or the fruit (also an artificial ornament):--pomegranate.


(Num 20:6 KJV) And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them.

The glory of God appeared to both Moses and Aaron.


(Num 20:7 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

(Num 20:8 KJV) Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.

Another wonder and sign from God. Water from a rock by speaking to the rock.

The amount of water needed was for 600,000+ Israelites and for their animals. Truely a miracle from
God as they were in a desert, where water did not exist.


(Num 20:9 KJV) And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.

(Num 20:10 KJV) And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?

(Num 20:11 KJV) And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.

Moses struck the rock twice with his staff. In this way, Moses disobeyed God, For God had instructed Moses to speak to the rock, not strike it twice. Disobeying Gods command in this act was a sign of rebellion (vs24) before God.


(Num 20:12 KJV) 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.

In Ex 17:5 Moses had previously struck a rock as God had commanded and water came out. But Moses did not have enough trust in God to simply speak to the Rock as God had commanded. By not obeying what God had instructed, Moses did not honor God.

Moses judgement was that he would not bring Israel into the land of Canaan.


(Num 20:13 KJV) This is the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.

(Num 20:14 KJV) And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, Thus saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen us:

Moses asks the King of Edom for permission to enter through the land of Edom.


(Num 20:15 KJV) How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers:

Angel H4397. mal'ak, mal-awk'; from an unused root mean. to despatch as a deputy; a messenger; spec. of God, i.e. an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher):--ambassador, angel, king, messenger.


(Num 20:17 KJV) Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the king's high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders.

(Num 20:18 KJV) And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword.

Edom H123. 'Edom, ed-ome'; or (fully) 'Edowm, ed-ome'; from H122; red [see Gen. 25 : 25]; Edom, the elder twin-brother of Jacob; hence the region (Idumaea) occupied by him:--Edom, Edomites, Idumea.


(Num 20:19 KJV) And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I will pay for it: I will only, without doing any thing else, go through on my feet.

(Num 20:20 KJV) And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out against him with much people, and with a strong hand.

(Num 20:21 KJV) Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel turned away from him.

(Num 20:22 KJV) And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.

(Num 20:23 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying,

(Num 20:24 KJV) 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.

Aaron would not enter into the promised land because he rebelled against Gods word at Meribah, as did Moses.

Rebelled H4784. marah, maw-raw'; a prim. root; to be (caus. make) bitter (or unpleasant); (fig.) to rebel (or resist; causat. to provoke):--bitter, change, be disobedient, disobey, grievously, provocation, provoke (-ing), (be) rebel (against, -lious).


(Num 20:25 KJV) Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor:

(Num 20:26 KJV) 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.

(Num 20:27 KJV) And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.

(Num 20:28 KJV) And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.

Aaron died.


(Num 20:29 KJV) And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.

The house of Israel and the congregation mourned Aaron for 30 days.

Numbers Chapter 21

(Num 21:1 KJV) And when king Arad the Canaanite, which 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.

(Num 21:2 KJV) And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.

(Num 21:3 KJV) And 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.

The king of Arad, the people and cities were destroyed because they attacked Israel and took prisoners. God delivered them unto Israel for destruction.


(Num 21:4 KJV) And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.

(Num 21:5 KJV) And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

Israel spoke against God and Moses. They detested the food (light bread-Manna) which God had provided for them for food to survive in the desert.

They complained against Gods provision and the bread which God gave them, which gave them life.


(Num 21:6 KJV) And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

The judgement of God.

Fiery H8314. saraph, saw-rawf'; from H8313; burning, i.e. (fig.) poisonous (serpent); spec. a saraph or symbol. creature (from their copper color):--fiery (serpent), seraph.

(Num 21:7 KJV) Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

(Num 21:8 KJV) And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.


In the NT, John records the words of Jesus.

(John 3:14 KJV) And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Serpent G3789. ophis, of'-is; prob. from G3700 (through the idea of sharpness of vision); a snake, fig. (as a type of sly cunning) an artful malicious person, espec. Satan:--serpent.

(John 3:16 KJV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

As Israel looked upon the serpent on the pole as God had commanded, they lived. An illustration that those who look to Jesus and believe in him shall also live.


(Num 21:9 KJV) And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

2 Kings 18:4 later on in the time of kings, Israel worshipped the bronze snake and burnt incense to it. It was called Nehustan.

Nehushtan H5180. Nechushtan, nekh-oosh-tawn'; from H5178; something made of copper, i.e. the copper serpent of the Desert:--Nehushtan.

In the New Testament, John makes a reference to this in John 3:14.

(Num 21:11 KJV) And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising.

(Num 21:12 KJV) From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared.

(Num 21:13 KJV) From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which is in the wilderness that cometh out of the coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites.

(Num 21:14 KJV) Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD, What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,


(Num 21:15 KJV) And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab.

(Num 21:16 KJV) And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water.

(Num 21:17 KJV) Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it:

(Num 21:18 KJV) The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah:

(Num 21:23 KJV) And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.

Sihon the king of the Amorites instead went out to fight against Israel.

(Num 21:24 KJV) And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

For (k) 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 unto Arnon.

(k) For if it had been the Moabites, the Israelites might not have possessed it, (Deu_2:9).

Deu 2:9 And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them
in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto
the children of Lot for a possession.


(Num 21:27 KJV) Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon, let the city of Sihon be built and prepared:

(Num 21:28 KJV) For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon: it hath consumed Ar of Moab, and the lords of the high places of Arnon.

(Num 21:29 KJV) Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites.

The king of Moab sent more distinguished princes and offered him great honour to try persuade Balaam to curse on Israel, so they might defeat in battle.


(Num 22:18 KJV) And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

(Num 22:19 KJV) Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more.

(Num 22:20 KJV) And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.

God instructed Balaam to go with the men if they came, but to do the word (instruction) which he gave them.


(Num 22:21 KJV) And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab.

Balaam went with the princes of Moab as God had instructed.

Princes H8269. sar, sar; from H8323; a head person (of any rank or class):--captain (that had rule), chief (captain), general, governor, keeper, lord, ([-task-]) master, prince (-ipal), ruler, steward.


(Num 22:22 KJV) And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

Kindled H2734. charah, khaw-raw'; a prim. root [comp. H2787]; to glow or grow warm; fig. (usually) to blaze up, of anger, zeal, jealousy:--be angry, burn, be displeased, X earnestly, fret self, grieve, be (wax) hot, be incensed, kindle, X very, be wroth. See H8474.


Why was God angry with Balaam, when God had instructed him to go with the princes?

Wesley Commentary - Numbers 22:22

Because he went of his own accord, with the princes of Moab, and did not wait till they came to call him, which was the sign and condition of God's permission, but rather himself rose and called them.

The apostle describes Balaam's sin here to be, that he ran greedily into an error for reward, Jud_1:11.

For an adversary - To oppose, if not to kill him. His servants with him - The rest of the company being probably gone before them.

For in those ancient times there was more of simplicity, and less of ceremony, and therefore it is not strange that Balaam came at some distance, after the rest, and attended only by his own servants.


(Num 22:23 KJV) And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

Sword H2719. chereb, kheh'-reb; from H2717; drought; also a cutting instrument (from its destructive effect), as a knife, sword, or other sharp implement:--axe, dagger, knife, mattock, sword, tool.


(Num 22:24 KJV) But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

The donkey could see the Angel of the Lord. Balaam could not see the angel of the Lord.


(Num 22:25 KJV) And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

(Num 22:26 KJV) And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

(Num 22:27 KJV) And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.

(Num 22:28 KJV) And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

A sign and wonder of God. God opened the donkey’s mouth and the donkey was able to speak to Balaam in a language that he could understand.


(Num 22:29 KJV) And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

Balaam spoke back to the Ass.


(Num 22:30 KJV) And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

(Num 22:31 KJV) Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

The LORD opened Balaams eyes, so that he could see the angel of the Lord who was present, but he could see the angel.

Perverse H3399. yarat, yaw-rat'; a prim. root; to precipitate or hurl (rush) headlong; (intrans.) to be rash:--be perverse, turn over.


(Num 22:33 KJV) And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.
If the ass did not turn, the angel of God would have slain Balaam.

(Num 22:34 KJV) And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

(Num 22:35 KJV) And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.

The angel gave Balaam permission to go with the princes on Balak, but only speak the word God was giving to him, through the Angel.


(Num 22:36 KJV) And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet him unto a city of Moab, which is in the border of Arnon, which is in the utmost coast.

Balak H1111. Balaq, baw-lawk'; from H1110; waster; Balak, a Moabitish king:--Balak.


(Num 22:37 KJV) And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote thee to honour?

The king though Balaam did not come, because he would not promote him to Honour.

(Num 22:38 KJV) And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak.

(Num 22:39 KJV) And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth.

(Num 22:41 KJV) And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people.

Baal – The God of the Phoenicians. A false God.

(Num 23:1 KJV) And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.

(Num 23:2 KJV) And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.

(Num 23:3 KJV) And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and I will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and whatsoever he showeth me I will tell thee. And he went to an high place.

Peradventure H194. 'uwlay, oo-lah'ee; or (short.) 'ulay, oo-lah'ee; from H176; if not; hence perhaps:--if so be, may be, peradventure, unless.


(Num 23:4 KJV) And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock and a ram.

(Num 23:7 KJV) And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

(Num 23:9 KJV) For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.

(Num 23:10 KJV) Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!

Balaam did not pronounce defeat or death of the people of Israel, but a blessing through an increase in number.


(Num 23:11 KJV) And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether.

Through Balaam’s words he pronounced a blessing to Israel instead of cursing them.


(Num 23:12 KJV) And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth?

Balaam explains to Balak, these are the words of the LORD.


(Num 23:13 KJV) And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence.

(Num 23:14 KJV) And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on every altar.

(Num 23:15 KJV) And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering, while I meet the LORD yonder.

(Num 23:16 KJV) And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus.

(Num 23:17 KJV) And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the LORD spoken?

(Num 23:18 KJV) And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:

(Num 23:19 KJV) 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?

(Num 23:20 KJV) Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

The word of God to Balaam was a commandment to bless, not curse. This commandment Balaam could not reverse or change.

(Num 23:25 KJV) And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all.
Balak, then requested that he not curse them but also to not bless them either. If Balaam blessed them, how could he defeat them?

(Num 23:26 KJV) But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?

Balak tries a third time to get Balaam to curse Israel.

(Num 23:27 KJV) And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou mayest curse me them from thence.

(Num 23:28 KJV) And Balak brought Balaam unto the top of Peor, that looketh toward Jeshimon.

Balaam’s message was of defeat for Balak and victory and blessings for Israel.

(Num 24:10 KJV) And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three times.

(Num 24:11 KJV) Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote thee unto great honour; but, lo, the LORD hath kept thee back from honour.

(Num 24:12 KJV) And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying,

(Num 24:13 KJV) 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 mine own mind; but what the LORD saith, that will I speak?

I know this is peculiar, at least it is to me, butnI just realzed that their are thirteen (13) tribes of Israel. Two of which are attributed to Joseph. Which in actuality leaves twelve numbered and warring tribes and the thirteenth (The tribe of Levi) being the priesthood, non warring and fully devoted to worship and godly things. I suppose this is important since there were a lot of religious events to keep up with as well as the worship tents and eventually the Arc of the covenant to care for. But that said, the bible only mainly references the twelve (12) tribes, twelve (12) disciples etc. Is there significance in the Thirteen? I often thought of the thirteen also being with Paul, being that he is the Apostle to the gentiles. Am I reaching? What are your thoughts?

(Gen 49:4 KJV) Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.


(Gen 49:5 KJV) Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.

(Gen 49:6 KJV) O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall.

(Gen 49:7 KJV) Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.

(Gen 49:24 KJV) But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

(Gen 49:25 KJV) Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:

Numbers Chapter 31

(Num 31:1 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

(Num 31:2 KJV) Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

Avenge H5358. naqam, naw-kam'; a prim. root; to grudge, i.e. avenge or punish:--avenge (-r, self), punish, revenge (self), X surely, take vengeance.

Midianites H4080. Midyan, mid-yawn'; the same as H4079; Midjan, a son of Abraham; also his country and (collect.) his descend.:--Midian, Midianite.

Henry Commentary - Numbers 31:1-6

Here, I. The Lord of hosts gives orders to Moses to make war upon the Midianites, and his commission no doubt justified this war, though it will not serve to justify the like without such commission.

The Midianites were the posterity of Abraham by Ketuarah, Gen_25:2.

Some of them settled south of Canaan, among whom Jethro lived, and they retained the worship of the true God; but these were settled east of Canaan, and had fallen into idolatry, neighbours to, and in confederacy with, the Moabites.
Their land was not designed to be given to Israel, nor would Israel have meddled with them if they had not made themselves obnoxious to their resentment by sending their bad women among them to draw them to whoredom and idolatry.

This was the provocation, this was the quarrel.

For this (says God) avenge Israel of the Midianites, Num_31:2. 1. God would have the Midianites chastised, an inroad made upon that part of their country which lay next to the camp of Israel, and which was probably more concerned in that mischief than the Moabites, who therefore were let alone.

God will have us to reckon those our worst enemies that draw us to sin, and to avoid them; and since every man is tempted when he is drawn aside of his own lusts, and these are the Midianites which ensnare us with their wiles, on them we should avenge ourselves, not only make no league with them, but make war upon them by living a life of mortification.

God had taken vengeance on his own people for yielding to the Midianites' temptations; now the Midianites, that gave the temptation, must be reckoned with, for the deceived and the deceiver are his (Job_12:16), both accountable to his tribunal; and, though judgment begin at the house of God, it shall not end there, 1Pe_4:17. There is a day coming when vengeance will be taken on those that have introduced errors and corruptions into the church, and the devil that deceived men will be cast into the lake of fire.

Israel's quarrel with Amalek, that fought against them, was not avenged till long after: but their quarrel with Midian, that debauched them, was speedily avenged, for they were looked upon as much more the dangerous and malicious enemies.

2. God would have it done by Moses, in his life-time, that he who had so deeply resented that injury might have the satisfaction of seeing it avenged.

“See this execution done upon the enemies of God and Israel, and afterwards thou shalt be gathered to thy people.” This was the only piece of service of this kind that Moses must further do, and then he has accomplished, as a hireling, his day, and shall have his quietus - enter into rest: hitherto his usefulness must come, and no further; the wars of Canaan must be carried on by another hand.

Note, God sometimes removes useful men when we think they can be ill spared; but this ought to satisfy us, that they are never removed till they have done the work which was appointed them.


(Num 31:3 KJV) 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.

(Num 31:4 KJV) Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.

(Num 31:5 KJV) So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve
thousand armed for war.


War against the Midianites

(Num 31:6 KJV) And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

Instruments H3627. keliy, kel-ee'; from H3615; something prepared, i.e. any apparatus (as an implement, utensil, dress, vessel or weapon):--armour ([-bearer]), artillery, bag, carriage, + furnish, furniture, instrument, jewel, that is made of, X one from another, that which pertaineth, pot, + psaltery, sack, stuff, thing, tool, vessel, ware, weapon, + whatsoever.


(Num 31:7 KJV) And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

(Num 31:8 KJV) And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

Balaam son of Beor was killed. Balaam was the one who Balak, King of Moab tried to pay in order to get him to curse Israel, so he might defeat Israel in battle (Num 22:10). This was the same Balaam that enticed Israel to sin by eating foods sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality (Num 31:16, Rev 2:14).

In the New Testament – Peter mentions Balaam of Beor. Jude 1:11 also mentions him and his destruction (Numbers 31:8). Revelation 2:14 mentions Balaam. Jesus reveals to John that Balaam enticed Israel to sin by eating foods sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality.

Note: In Numbers 24:17–24 Balaam prophecies the future of Israel.


(Num 31:9 KJV) And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

(Num 31:10 KJV) And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.

(Num 31:11 KJV) And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.

Prey H4455. malqowach, mal-ko'-akh; from H3947; trans. (in dual) the jaws (as taking food); intrans. spoil [and captives] (as taken):--booty, jaws, prey.


(Num 31:12 KJV) And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

(Num 31:13 KJV) And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

(Num 31:14 KJV) And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.

Wroth H7107. qatsaph, kaw-tsaf'; a prim. root; to crack off, i.e. (fig.) burst out in rage:--(be) anger (-ry), displease, fret self, (provoke to) wrath (come), be wroth.

Captains H8269. sar, sar; from H8323; a head person (of any rank or class):--captain (that had rule), chief (captain), general, governor, keeper, lord, ([-task-]) master, prince (-ipal), ruler, steward.


(Num 31:15 KJV) And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

(Num 31:16 KJV) Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.


Gill Commentary - Numbers 31:16

Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam,.... Who advised the Midianites to send their women into the camp of Israel, and allure them to uncleanness, and so draw them into idolatry, which counsel they followed and it succeeded; for, by this means, they were brought

to commit trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor; by worshipping Baalpeor, the god of the Moabites and Midianites; whereby they transgressed the commandment of God, which forbid them having and worshipping any other gods besides him, and is a sin highly offensive to him, being greatly derogatory to his honour and glory:

and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord; for that sin; and in that plague died 24,000 persons, Num_25:9.


(Num 31:17 KJV) Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

(Num 31:18 KJV) But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

(Num 31:19 KJV) And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day.


Gill Commentary - Numbers 31:19

And do ye abide without the camp seven days..... Which was the time that anyone that touched a dead body remained unclean, Num_19:11,

(Num 32:1 KJV) Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle;

(Num 32:3 KJV) Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,

(Num 32:4 KJV) Even the country which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle:

The children of Reuben and Gad wanted to stay in that land of Jazar and not enter into the land God had promised for them.


(Num 32:5 KJV) Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and bring us not over Jordan.

Grace H2580. chen, khane; from H2603; graciousness, i.e. subj. (kindness, favor) or objective (beauty):--favour, grace (-ious), pleasant, precious, [well-] favoured.


(Num 32:6 KJV) And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?

(Num 32:7 KJV) And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them?

Moses was concerned because they would not be going into the promised land. What example would this be for the rest of Israel. And what example would it be if they did not go into war with Israel to fight against those in the land they were to possess.


(Num 32:8 KJV) Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadeshbarnea to see the land.

(Num 32:9 KJV) For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given them.

(Num 32:10 KJV) And the LORD'S anger was kindled the same time, and he sware, saying,

(Num 32:12 KJV) Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.

(Num 32:13 KJV) And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.

(Num 32:14 KJV) And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel.

(Num 32:15 KJV) For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people.

(Num 32:16 KJV) And they came near unto him, and said, We will build sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little ones:

The tribes of Gad and Reuben promised to go with Israel to war and to help the other tribes drive out the inhabitants of the people of the land they were going to possess.


(Num 32:17 KJV) But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

(Num 32:18 KJV) We will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have inherited every man his inheritance.

Only after the other tribes of Israel have inherited their land, will they return to their homes. The tribes of Gad and Reuben, their inheritance would be on this side of the Jordan, in that land of Jazar.



(Num 32:19 KJV) For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan, or forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Jordan eastward.

(Num 32:20 KJV) And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this thing, if ye will go armed before the LORD to war,

(Num 32:21 KJV) And will go all of you armed over Jordan before the LORD, until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,

(Num 32:22 KJV) And the land be subdued before the LORD: then afterward ye shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD, and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the LORD.

(Num 32:24 KJV) Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your sheep; and do that which hath proceeded out of your mouth.

(Num 32:25 KJV) And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spake unto Moses, saying, Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.

(Num 32:26 KJV) Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be there in the cities of Gilead:

Gilead H1568. Gil'ad, ghil-awd'; prob. from H1567; Gilad, a region E. of the Jordan; also the name of three Isr.:--Gilead, Gileadite. ad.


(Num 32:27 KJV) But thy servants will pass over, every man armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my lord saith.

(Num 32:28 KJV) So concerning them Moses commanded Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel:

(Num 32:29 KJV) And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every man armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be subdued before you; then ye shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession:

(Num 32:30 KJV) But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan.

(Num 32:31 KJV) And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we do.

(Num 32:32 KJV) We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side Jordan may be ours.

(Num 32:33 KJV) And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and unto half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, even the cities of the country round about.

(Num 32:36 KJV) And Bethnimrah, and Bethharan, fenced cities: and folds for sheep.

(Num 32:40 KJV) And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he dwelt therein.
