Bible Commentary for Numbers 1:47

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 1:47


1:49 Levi - Because they were not generally to go out to war, which was the thing principally eyed in this muster, #Nu 1:3|,20,45, but were to attend upon the service of the tabernacle. They that minister upon holy things, should not entangle themselves in secular affairs. The ministry itself is work enough for a whole man, and all little enough to be employed in it.


Discussion for Numbers 1:47

  • Joanne on Numbers 1:47
    Was Moses getting a poll of all the men twenty one and above to prepare for war?
  • Chris - in Reply on Numbers 1:47
    That is correct Joanne. God had instructed Moses to number the men from twenty yrs of age & above, to have each tribes leaders appointed & be in readiness for war as God had instructed them to conquer the nations before them & to possess the land that God had given them for their inheritance. You can read about the commencement of this thrust into these heathen, idolatrous lands in the book of Joshua.
