Numbers 35-36

  • 35: 2 – Earlier in Numbers God explained that the Levites would not receive an inheritance, but instead would receive what was offered to God. This command is another way God provided for the Levites.
  • 35:11 – They had specific cities of refuge for people who accidentally killed people, but God makes it clear what defines an accidental death and who should not have access to the cities of refuge.
  • Chapter 36 ends Numbers with one final commandment about marriage- this one deals with ensuring that property remains in the proper tribes. It’s a strange note to end the book on, but Numbers is all about two things: 1. Getting the Israelites to the Promised Land and 2. Teaching them how to live once they’re in the Promised Land.
