    Verse 12: Jehovah God can hear any murmuring against his spokesmen and he takes such murmuring personal.
  • A disciple
    What stands out as extraordinary in the character and behavior of the people? These special and favored people saw all of God's mighty works done right before their eyes; and yet they could not find a way to receive His Spirit, repent and be converted, and become His loving obedient children! Our generation has had the Bible, and all of history testifying to us: but where is the fruit?
