Numbers 13:1,2 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Send men that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel. Of every tribe of their fathers shall you send a man, every one a ruler among them.

Numbers 13:16 These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.

Numbers 13:17 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan and said unto them, Get you up this way southward and go up into the mountain.

Numbers 13:18-21 And see the land, what it is and the people that dwell therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many and what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad and what cities there be that they dwell in, whether in tents or in strong holds and what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there be wood therein or not. And be you of good courage and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the first ripe grapes. 

Numbers 13:21 So they went up and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin.(the south-eastern corner of the desert et-Tih, the wilderness of Paran, between the Gulf of Akabah and the head of the Wady Guraiyeh).unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath. 

Numbers 13:22 And they ascended by the south and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. Now Hebron was built seven years before.Zoan.in Egypt.

Zoan, also know as Tanis, was a city in Egypt whose ancient name was Kiriath-arba and according to Hebrew writers, so called because four patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Adam were buried there; according to Joshua 15:13 it was named after Arba, an ancestor of the Anakim and founder of the city of Hebron, to which he gave its ancient name.

Numbers 13:23,24 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes and they bare it between two upon a staff and they brought of the pomegranates and of the figs. The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.

Numbers 13:25,26 And they returned from searching of the land.(this was the land of Canaan).after forty days. And they went and came to Moses and to Aaron and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh and brought back word unto them and unto all the congregation and showed them the fruit of the land.

Numbers 13:27 And they told him and said, We came unto the land.(Deuteronomy 8:7-9; 34:1-5).whither you sent us and surely it flows with milk and honey and this is the fruit of it.

Numbers 13:28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land and the cities are walled and very great and moreover, we saw the children of Anak there. 

Numbers 13:29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south and the Hittites and the Jebusites and the Amorites dwell in the mountains and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and by the coast of Jordan

Numbers 13:30-32 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses and said, Let us go up at once and possess it, for we are well able to overcome it. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eats up the inhabitants thereof.(ready to war with any opposing them and the land would require work to set up, protect and maintain).and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.

Numbers 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants. And we were in our own sight as grasshoppers and so we were in their sight.

Numbers 14:2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt!.(where they were in captivity for 430 years:.Isaiah 10:20,21).or would God we had died in this wilderness!.(Moses, you brought us out here to die!)

Numbers 14:3,4 And wherefore has the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? Were it not better for us to return into Egypt? And they said one to another, Let us make a captain and let us return into Egypt.

Numbers 14:5-7 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes. And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

Numbers 14:8 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land and give it us the land which flows with milk and honey.(original 'fatness' and the sweetness of honey; it was a lush land).

Numbers 14:11-13 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have showed among them? I will smite them with the pestilence and disinherit them and will make of you a greater nation and mightier than they. And Moses said unto the LORD, Then the Egyptians shall hear it, for you brought up this people in your might from among them;

Numbers 14:14 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. For they have heard that you LORD are among this people, that you LORD are seen face to face and that your cloud stands over them and that you have gone before them by day time in a pillar of a cloud and in a pillar of fire by night.

Numbers 14:15-17 Now if you kill all this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of you will speak, saying, Because the LORD was not able to bring this people into the land which he sware unto them, therefore he has slain them in the wilderness. And now, I beseech you, let the power of my Lord be great, according as you have spoken, saying,

Numbers 14:18 The LORD is longsuffering and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

Numbers 14:19 Pardon, I beseech you, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of your mercy and as you have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

Numbers 14:20 And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to your word.

Numbers 14:21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.

Numbers 14:22 Because all those men.(the many thousands including Moses and his brother Aaron, their leaders:.Numbers 20:12; 32:11,12).which have seen my glory and my miracles which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness and have tempted me now these ten times.(there was no ten times; it means 'frequently' and to the point of giving up on them, because God was fed up with them constantly shoving God away to fulfil their own selfishnesses, instead of using the tools of God to get the good promised to them; what were the tools?).and have not hearkened.(*).to my voice.

After all they had experienced of God protecting them, they still didn't believe God would continue doing it. So, it's important to be sincere about learning. and remembering. They said yes, because they wanted something better than they had in captivity in Egypt, but they had no heart to even begin to mean it sincerely.

Numbers 14:23 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me.(Hebrews 3:8).see it.

Numbers 14:24 But my servant Caleb.(Numbers 32:11,12), because he had another spirit with him.(was of a better consciousness.than the rest; how was his consciousness better?.Romans 9:32).and has followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went and his seed shall possess it.

Numbers 14:25 Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley. Tomorrow turn you and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.

Numbers 14:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

Numbers 14:27-29 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Say unto them, As truly as I live, says the LORD, as you have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you. Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness of all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me.

Numbers 14:30 Doubtless you shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. 

Numbers 14:31-33 But your little ones, which you said should be a prey, them will I bring in and they shall know the land which you have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

Numbers 14:31-33 But your little ones, which you said should be a prey, them will I bring in and they shall know the land which you have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years.(another 40 years; this time the children of those who came out of Egypt; the original group, their fathers were bitter all the previous 40 years or one generation, which they were in the wilderness; they would not be going into the promised land (Numbers 13:25-28), but their children would be, but the children were going to get 40 years so the lesson of why their parents could not go to this promised land would be understood by the children to be because of their parents evil ways in turning from the God who wanted to give them everything good; the parents couldn't go because they wouldn't listen to God and they weren't interested in listening because they just didn't believe God:.Exodus 20:5: Numbers 14:22).and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

Numbers 14:34 After the number of the days in which you searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years and you shall know my breach of promise.

Numbers 14:35 I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed and there they shall die.

Numbers 14:36 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land returned and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land.(the slander was, the land Moses brought us out of Egypt to go into, is no good; they didn't consider that God has the ability to change a meager land into a good one and so it was a complaint against God because of their unbelief),

Numbers 14:37 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD..(these people back then just didn't trust God for anything good)

Numbers 14:38-42 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still. And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel and the people mourned greatly. And they rose up early in the morning and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here and will go up unto the place which the LORD has promised, for we have sinned. And Moses said, Wherefore now do you transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper. Go not up, for the LORD is not among you, that you be not smitten before your enemies.

Numbers 14:43 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you and you shall fall by the sword, because you are turned away from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.

But they didn't listen. What did they do?.Jeremiah 44:16,17.

Numbers 14:44 But they presumed to go up unto the hill top.(*). Nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD.(Romans 14:7-9).and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

Even though these ancients were moving away from the things of God, there remained a firm and resolute presence of God with them. Similar today it is, with God being the base of us and all things, that is, underneath it all. And, you can easily prove this to yourself by considering what it is that sustains you.

Numbers 14:45 Then the Amalekites came down and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill and smote them and discomfited them.(killed some of them and beat others up), even unto Hormah.(kept chasing after them all the way to the city of Hormah).

And this was only about two years after God brought them out of captivity in Egypt. They wanted the gods they made, rather than the God that made them.

Numbers 15:15,16 One ordinance shall be both for the congregation and also for the stranger that sojourns with you, an ordinance forever in your generations. As you are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD. One law and one manner.(standard of judgment based upon it, so it's fair for all:.Deuteronomy 32:4; compare.Exodus 33:19).shall be for you and for the stranger that sojourns with you.

Numbers 15:20,21 You shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an heave offering as you do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall you heave it. Of the first of your dough you shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations.

Numbers 15:30,31 But the soul that does ought.presumptuously, whether he be born in the land or a stranger, the same reproaches the LORD and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Because he hath despised the word of the LORD and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off.(*); his iniquity shall be upon him.

Numbers 15:32,33 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron and unto all the congregation.

Numbers 15:34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

Numbers 15:35,36 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death. All the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. And all the congregation brought him without the camp and stoned him with stones and he died as the LORD commanded Moses.

Numbers 15:35,36 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death. All the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. And all the congregation brought him without the camp and stoned him with stones and he died as the LORD commanded Moses.

Numbers 15:35,36 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death.(the Old Testament's over 600+ laws were rigid and are thankfully completely abolished; he was doing the work of gathering sticks to make a fire, work that at this time, was not allowed under the Mosaic Law on the sabbath day, as it was a day where one's attentions were to be on God, a day of rest and peace, so the people had an opportunity to grow spiritually, to read about and share the things of a higher consciousness than that they were used to the rest of the week; one who profaned the sabbath was showing disdain for God as all had agreed in the land of Israel back then to all the terms presented to them:.Exodus 19:7,8). All the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. And all the congregation brought him without the camp and stoned him with stones and he died as the LORD commanded Moses.(seems cruel; is God cruel?).

Numbers 15:38 Speak unto the children of Israel and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue. 

Numbers 15:39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe.(or, the purpose of the fringe is), that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the LORD and do them and that you seek not after your own heart and your own eyes.(*), after which you use to go a whoring.(they were into their selfish ways that were the only way they knew, since they kicked God away from them:.Proverbs 14:12; Jeremiah 44:16,17).

Numbers 15:40 That you may remember and do all my commandments and be holy unto your God.

Numbers 16:1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men. 

Numbers 16:2,3 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown. And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron and said unto them, You take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy.(we're all just as good as you and could lead this nation), every one of them and the LORD is among them. Wherefore then lift you up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD.(what makes you think that you are greater than anyone elso here)?

These rebellious.usurpers were out to grab control from Moses:.1Samuel 12:6.

Numbers 16:4-7 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face. And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even tomorrow the LORD will show who are his and who is holy and will cause him to come near unto him, even him whom he has chosen will he cause to come near unto him. This do, take you censers, Korah and all his company and put fire therein and put incense in them before the LORD tomorrow and it shall be that the man whom the LORD does choose, he shall be holy.(you'll see the one whom God wants over this nation). You take too much upon you, you sons of Levi.(it's you who are taking too much on you).

Numbers 16:8,9 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear I pray you, you sons of Levi, does it seem a small thing unto you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?

Numbers 16:10-15 And he has brought you near to him and all your brethren the sons of Levi with you and yet you seek the priesthood also? For which cause both you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD. And what is Aaron, that you murmur against him? And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, which said, We will not come up. Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land that flows with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except you make yourself altogether a prince over us? Moreover you have not brought us into a land that flows with milk and honey or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards. Will you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up. And Moses was very wroth and said unto the LORD, Respect not you their offering. I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.

Numbers 16:10-15 And he has brought you near to him and all your brethren the sons of Levi with you, and seek you the priesthood also.(it wasn't enough for you to remain in the position God gave you; they grasped for more)? For which cause both you and all your company are gathered together against the LORD. And what is Aaron, that you murmur against him.(your finding fault with me and now Aaron; they were looking for some reason to justify their rebellious actions)? And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, which said, We will not come up.(they too were against Moses). Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land that flows with milk and honey.(how they compared their horrible life in Egypt to now being in the wilderness; they conveniently forgot just how bad it was in their comparison with where they now were), to kill us in the wilderness, except you make yourself altogether a prince over us.(they forgot who had placed Moses over them and accused him of jacking himself up in selfishness)? Moreover you have not brought us into a land that flows with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards.(they continually complained and blamed Moses for what they didn't like about their present situation). Will you put out the eyes of these men.(are you Moses going to punish these men who are against you)? We will not come up.(well, you can count us out of supporting you). And Moses was very wroth and said unto the LORD, Respect not you their offering. I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.(I have done nothing to cause them to act this way)

Numbers 16:16-21 And Moses said unto Korah, Be you and all your company before the LORD, you and they and Aaron, tomorrow.(tomorrow we will bring all this matter before God). And take every man his censer and put incense in them and bring you before the LORD every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers, you also and Aaron, each of you his censer. And they took every man his censer and put fire in them and laid incense thereon and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron. And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation. And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.(God was not pleased, to say the least:.1Samuel 15:23)

Numbers 16:22 And they fell upon their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh.(Hebrews 12:9), shall one man sin and will you be wrathful with all the congregation?.(the story of this rebellion against Moses begins in verse 1)

Numbers 16:23-29 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from where you are and go to the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.(their tent was on the south side of the main tabernacle). And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram and the elders of Israel followed him. And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins. So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan and Abiram, on every side and Dathan and Abiram came out and stood in the door of their tents and their wives and their sons and their little children. And Moses said, Hereby you shall know that the LORD has sent me to do all these works, for I have not done them of mine own mind. If these men die the common death of all men, that is, being visited after the visitation of all men, then the LORD has not sent me. 

Numbers 16:30 But if the LORD make a new thing.(new to men in the area this was to happen:.Ecclesiastes 1:9,10).and the earth open her mouth and swallow them up, with all that appertains unto them and they go down quick into the pit, then you shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.(lived as though they didn't care if God was around or not; many back then wanted nothing at all to do with God:.Jeremiah 44:16,17).

Numbers 16:31-34 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave.asunder that was under them. And the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up and their houses and all the men that appertained unto Korah and all their goods. They and all that appertained to them went down alive into the pit and the earth closed upon them and they perished from among the congregation. And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them, for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also. 

Numbers 16:35 And there came out a fire from the LORD and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.(why? verse 40)

Numbers 16:36,37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning and scatter you the fire yonder, for they are hallowed

Numbers 16:38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls.(these were those who oppose even themselves; self sabotage); let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar, for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed.(they expected their religious physical practice would negate the results of their actions, actions which showed their true heart was not right; they were corrupt and hiding behind practices they believed would absolve their actions). And they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.(a sign that physical worship is useless if it's not from a heart loving God)

Numbers 16:39 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen.(made of brass).censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar,

Numbers 16:40 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger which is not of the seed of Aaron.(why?), come near to offer incense before the LORD, that he be not as Korah and as his company, as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses. 

Numbers 16:41-45 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, You have killed the people of the LORD.(they had just decided to be against Moses no matter what and even after the events of the previous day; they were one complaining people; people of ordinary consciousness just never seem to get the right message in anything). And it came to pass when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation and behold, the cloud covered it and the glory of the LORD appeared. And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces..(God had enough of the waywardness of all of them)

Numbers 16:46-49 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer and put fire therein from off the altar and put on incense and go quickly unto the congregation and make an atonement for them. For there is wrath gone out from the LORD. The plague is begun. And Aaron took as Moses commanded and ran into the midst of the congregation and behold, the plague was begun among the people. And he put on incense and made an atonement for the people. And he stood between the dead and the living and the plague was stayed. Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.

Numbers 16:50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and the plague was stayed.(stopped).
