Bible study 143 – Numbers 26Posted: February 23, 2017
A new census list is made, and it shows that there are about as many Israelites as at the start of Numbers. The census list is to be used to distribute among the Israelites all the new land they have stumbled upon.
Everyone on the old census list (except for the loyal Caleb and Joshua) are dead; I guess 40 years have passed now. I had expected more wilderness adventure. Also, I guess this means Moses will die soon.
Take a census of the whole congregation of the Israelites, from twenty years old and upward, by their ancestral houses, everyone in Israel able to go to war.
