Yesterday we heard the assignments for the Kohathite, Gershonite, and Merarite clans in regard to the care and moving of the sacred tent, all under the direction of Aaron's sons.
This is one of my personal favorite psalms because of the response of the people in the temple to God's glorious revelations of himself in nature.
In yesterday's reading, Zacchaeus— a notorious sinner, dramatically came to Jesus. Then Jesus told a very thought-provoking parable. He is the King who will return and He will ask for an accounting from each of us— his servants.
Num. 5:25 the priest shall take the offering of flour out of the woman's hands, hold it out in dedication to the Lord, and present it [before//on] the altar.
Ps. 29:22 [The king//He] said to him, ‘You bad servant! I will use your own words to condemn you! You know that I am a hard man, taking what is not mine and reaping what I have not planted.
Num. 6:27 Whenever Aaron and his sons bless the people of Israel [on my behalf//in my name], I myself will bless them.”
