As you read about Israel’s rebellion against Moses and Aaron in these chapters, as you read about the frustration and anger of the people because they couldn’t enter the Promised Land, as you read about the punishments through which Yahweh extinguishes their rebellions, don’t overlook the evidences of His grace: “When you come into the land you are to inhabit, which I am giving you”… (Numbers 15:2) He will keep His promise to give their descendants the land! “When you come into the land to which I bring you”… (Numbers 15:18) He will not abandon them! His Presence will dwell among them even during their punishment. Truly He is Yahweh, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression (Numbers 14:18).
Psalm 95 and Numbers 15 - 17
