Regular nibbles from the Bible. . .come for a bite, leave with an appetite

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight. (Psalm 19:14, MSG)

Surprise, surprise, yesterday was the end of Leviticus! So today we dive into Numbers.

I have a looming deadline, so I am going to encourage you to think through the nibbles today. These are the verses that jumped out at me today. As usual, I made a note of the verse, and my initial reaction. 

I look forward to your comments!  Even if you don't comment, I hope they will start you thinking and salivating for more of God's truth.

  • Numbers 1:1-5  "writing down the names of every male."  Comment: writing down 600,000 names? On clay tablets or on papyrus?  That would have taken a lot of supplies!
  • Numbers 1:4-5  "Pick one man from each tribe who is head of his family to help you. These are the names of the men who will help you."  Comment: First God says, you pick, then He tells them the names.
  • Numbers 1:52-53  "The Levites are responsible for the security of The Dwelling of The Testimony."  Comment: The original Swiss Guard
  • Numbers 2:9  "The total number of men assigned to Judah, troop by troop, is 186,400. They will lead the march."  Comment: Men assigned to Judah included the men of Judah AND the men of Issachar and Zebulon. The other three leading tribes were Reuben, Ephraim, and Dan.
I invite you to inspire me and feed my soul today!  And thank you.
