Summary of the book of numbers old testament.
The Book of Numbers is the fourth book of the Hebrew Bible, and the fourth of five books of the Jewish Torah.
The Book of Numbers (from Greek Ἀριθμοί, Arithmoi; Hebrew: בְּמִדְבַּר, Bəmiḏbar, “In the desert [of]”) is the fourth book of the Hebrew Bible, and the fourth of five books of the Jewish Torah. The name of the book originates from the two censuses taken of the Israelite.
The book has a long and complex history, yet its last shape is most likely because of a Priestly redaction of a Yahweh source made some time in the early Persian time frame (fifth century BCE).
Numbers starts at Mount Sinai, where the Israelite have gotten their laws and agreement from Yahweh has taken up home among them in the sanctuary. The general population are numbered and arrangements are made for continuing their walk. The undertaking before them is to claim the Promised Land. The Israelite start the trip, however they “mumble” at the hardships en route, and about the expert of Moses and Aaron. For these demonstrations, Yahweh pulverises roughly 15,000 of them through different means. They touch base at the outskirts of Canaan and send spies into the land. After hearing the spies’ dreadful report concerning the conditions in Canaan, the Israelite decline to claim it. Yahweh sentences them to death in the wild until another era can grow up and do the errand. The book closes with the new era of Israelite in the Plain of Moab prepared for the intersection of the Jordan River.
