The Wilderness

(Category 5 of 16)

In this video we explore the paradox that God’s holiness presents to human beings. God is the unique and set-apart Creator of all reality and the author of all goodness. However, that goodness can become dangerous to humans who are mortal and morally corrupt. Ultimately, this paradox is resolved by Jesus, who embodies God’s holiness that comes to heal His creation.

Ceremonially Unclean Persons Isolated

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
2 “Command the children of Israel that they put out of the camp every aleper, everyone who has a bdischarge, and whoever becomes cdefiled 1by a corpse.
3 “You shall put out both male and female; you shall put them outside the camp, that they may not defile their camps ain the midst of which I dwell.”
4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them outside the camp; as the LORD spoke to Moses, so the children of Israel did.

Confession and Restitution

5 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
6 “Speak to the children of Israel: a‘When a man or woman commits any sin that men commit in unfaithfulness against the LORD, and that person is guilty,
7 a‘then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass bin full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged.
8 ‘But if the man has no 1relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution for the wrong must go to the LORD for the priest, in addition to athe ram of the atonement with which atonement is made for him.
9 ‘Every aoffering1 of all the holy things of the children of Israel,which they bring to the priest, shall be bhis.
10 ‘And every man’s 1holy things shall be his; whatever any man gives the priest shall be ahis.’ ”

Concerning Unfaithful Wives

11 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
12 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘If any man’s wife goes astray and behaves unfaithfully toward him,
13 ‘and a man alies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband, and it is concealed that she has defiled herself, and there was no witness against her, nor was she bcaught—
14 ‘if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he becomes ajealous of his wife, who has defiled herself; or if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he becomes jealous of his wife, although she has not defiled herself—
15 ‘then the man shall bring his wife to the priest. He shall abring the offering required for her, one-tenth of

16 ‘And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD.
17 ‘The priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water.
18 ‘Then the priest shall stand the woman before the aLORD, uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering for remembering in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy. And the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that brings a curse.
19 ‘And the priest shall put her under oath, and say to the woman, “If no man has lain with you, and if you have not gone astray to uncleanness while under your husband’s authority, be free from this bitter water that brings a curse.
20 “But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority, and if you have defiled yourself and some man other than your husband has lain with you”—
21 ‘then the priest shall aput the woman under the oath of the curse, and he shall say to the woman— b“the LORD make you a curse and an oath among your people, when the LORD makes your thigh 1rot and your belly swell;
22 “and may this water that causes the curse ago into your stomach, and make your belly swell and your thigh rot.” bThen the woman shall say, “Amen, so be it.”
23 ‘Then the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall scrape them off into the bitter water.
24 ‘And he shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and the water that brings the curse shall enter her to become bitter.
25 a‘Then the priest shall take the grain offering of jealousy from the woman’s hand, shall bwave the offering before the LORD, and bring it to the altar;
26 ‘and the priest shall take a handful of the offering, aas its memorial portion, burn it on the altar, and afterward make the woman drink the water.
27 ‘When he has made her drink the water, then it shall be, if she has defiled herself and behaved unfaithfully toward her husband, that the water that brings a acurse will enter her and become bitter, and her belly will swell, her thigh will rot, and the woman bwill become a curse among her people.

The Law of the Nazirite

6

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When either a man or woman 1consecrates an offering to take the vow of a Nazirite, ato separate himself to the LORD,
3 a‘he shall separate himself from wine and similar drink; he shall drink neither vinegar made from wine nor vinegar made from similar drink; neither shall he drink any grape juice, nor eat fresh grapes or raisins.
4 ‘All the days of his 1separation he shall eat nothing that is produced by the grapevine, from seed to skin.
5 ‘All the days of the vow of his separation no arazor shall come upon his head; until the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to the LORD, he shall be holy. Then he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
6 ‘All the days that he separates himself to the LORD ahe shall not go near a dead body.
7 a‘He shall not 1make himself unclean even for his father or his mother, for his brother or his sister, when they die, because his separation to God is on his head.
8 a‘All the days of his separation he shall be holy to the LORD.
9 ‘And if anyone dies very suddenly beside him, and he defiles his consecrated head, then he shall ashave his head on the day of his cleansing; on the seventh day he shall shave it.
10 ‘Then aon the eighth day he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of meeting;
11 ‘and the priest shall offer one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, and make atonement for him, because he sinned in regard to the corpse; and he shall sanctify his head that same day.
12 ‘He shall consecrate to the LORD the days of his separation, and bring a male lamb in its first year aas a trespass offering; but the former days shall be 1lost, because his separation was defiled.
13 ‘Now this is the law of the Nazi-

page 123

rite: aWhen the days of his separation are fulfilled, he shall be brought to the door of the tabernacle of meeting.
14 ‘And he shall present his offering to the LORD: one male lamb in its first year without blemish as a burnt offering, one ewe lamb in its first year without blemish aas a sin offering, one ram without blemish bas a peace offering,
15 ‘a basket of unleavened bread, acakes of fine flour mixed with oil, unleavened wafers banointed with oil, and their grain offering with their cdrink offerings.
16 ‘Then the priest shall bring them before the LORD and offer his sin offering and his burnt offering;
17 ‘and he shall offer the ram as a sacrifice of a peace offering to the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread; the priest shall also offer its grain offering and its drink offering.
18 a‘Then the Nazirite shall shave his consecrated head at the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and shall take the hair from his consecrated head and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offering.
19 ‘And the priest shall take the aboiled shoulder of the ram, one bunleavened cake from the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and cput them upon the hands of the Nazirite after he has shaved his consecrated hair,
20 ‘and the priest shall wave them as a wave offering before the LORD; athey are holy for the priest, together with the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering. After that the Nazirite may drink wine.’
21 “This is the law of the Nazirite who vows to the LORD the offering for his separation, and besides that, whatever else his hand is able to provide; according to the vow which he takes, so he must do according to the law of his separation.”

The Priestly Blessing

22 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
23 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:

24 “The LORD abless you and bkeep you;
25 The LORD amake His face shine upon you, And bbe gracious to you;
26 aThe LORD 1lift up His countenance upon you, And bgive you peace.” ’

27 a“So they shall 1put My name on the children of Israel, and bI will bless them.”

Offerings of the Leaders

7

1 Now it came to pass, when Moses had finished asetting up the tabernacle, that he banointed it and consecrated it and all its furnishings, and the altar and all its utensils; so he anointed them and consecrated them.
2 Then athe leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ houses, who were the leaders of the tribes 1and over those who were numbered, made an offering.
3 And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered carts and twelve oxen, a cart for every two of the leaders, and for each one an ox; and they presented them before the tabernacle.
4 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5 “Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the work of the tabernacle of meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, to every man according to his service.”
6 So Moses took the carts and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites.
7 Two carts and four oxen ahe gave to the sons of Gershon, according to their service;
8 aand four carts and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the 1authority of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.
9 But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because theirs was athe service of the holy things, bwhich they carried on their shoulders.
10 Now the leaders offered athe dedication offering for the altar when it was anointed; so the leaders offered their offering before the altar.
11 For the LORD said to Moses, “They shall offer their offering, one leader each day, for the dedication of the altar.”
12 And the one who offered his offering on the first day was aNahshon the son of Amminadab, from the tribe of Judah.
13 His offering was one silver platter, the weight of which was one hundred and thirty shekels, and one silver bowl of seventy shekels, according to athe shekel of the sanctuary, both of them full of fine flour mixed with oil as a bgrain offering;
14 one gold pan of ten shekels, full of aincense;
15 aone young bull, one ram, and one male lamb bin its first year, as a burnt offering;
16 one kid of the goats as a asin offering;
17 and for athe sacrifice of peace offerings: two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five male lambs in their first year. This was the offering of Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

PSALM 41

The Blessing and Suffering of the Godly

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1 BLESSED is he who considers the 1poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The LORD will preserve him and keep him alive, And he will be blessed on the earth; aYou will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will 1sustain him on his sickbed.

4 I said, “LORD, be merciful to me; aHeal my soul, for I have sinned against You.”
5 My enemies speak evil of me: “When will he die, and his name perish?”
6 And if he comes to see me, he speaks 1lies; His heart gathers iniquity to itself; When he goes out, he tells it.

19; 89:52;
106:48; 150:6

7 All who hate me whisper together against me; Against me they 1devise my hurt.
8 “An1 evil disease,” they say, “clings to him. And now that he lies down, he will rise up no more.”
9 aEven my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, bWho ate my bread, Has 1lifted up his heel against me.

10 But You, O LORD, be merciful to me, and raise me up, That I may repay them.
11 By this I know that You are well pleased with me, Because my enemy does not triumph over me.
12 As for me,You uphold me in my integrity, And aset me before Your face forever.

13 aBlessed be the LORD God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
