Numbers 34

  1. The borders of Israel (34-:1-15) and those who play a significant part in the land distributions (34:16-29).
  2. Application: Eleazar (High Priest) and Joshua (Moses’ replacement) had a significant role, but along with the significant role there was also a part played by other men, reliable and trustworthy men. It is so easy to think that “I must do the job because I am not sure others can do it as well!” Such sentiments might easily gravitate to one thinking too much of self. I see in this chapter a team, not a (or the) individual. In the Lord’s church we all have a role and if we are trustworthy and reliable, then we ought to be encouraged and allowed to do what we can.
