SAB: Numbers

Numbers: Interpretation



  1. When "Moses numbered them according to the word of the Lord" he was told to count "every male from a month old and upward." Women and girls didn't count as persons. Neither did babies (or fetuses) under 1 month old. I guess the unborn just don't count to God. 3:15-16

  2. Is magic OK? 5:27, 21:8-9

  3. "He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink."
    Is it OK to drink alcohol? 6:3

  4. Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, the first freethought/democracy martyrs, refused to follow Moses blindly, saying that everyone is holy and should be free to think for him or herself. God killed them and their families for daring to challenge Moses. 16:1-35

  5. "The Book of the wars of the Lord"
    (One of the lost books of the Bible) 21:14

  6. Is it OK to gamble? 26:52-56, 33:54, 34:13

  7. The first women to demand their property rights? 27:1-7

  8. "Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death." 35:30
