Bible Commentary for Numbers 12:13

Wesley's Notes for Numbers 12:13


12:11 Lay not the sin - Let not the guilt and punishment of this sin rest upon us, upon her in this kind, upon me in any other kind, but pray to God for the pardon and removal of it.

12:12 As one dead - Because part of her flesh was putrefied and dead, and not to be restored but by the mighty power of God. Like a still - born child, that hath been for some time dead in the womb, which when it comes forth, is putrefied, and part of it consumed.

12:14 Spit in her face - That is, expressed some eminent token of indignation and contempt, which was this, #Job 30:10 Isa 50:6|. Ashamed - And withdraw herself, from her father's presence, as Jonathan did upon a like occasion, #1Sam 20:34|. So though God healed her according to Moses's request, yet he would have her publickly bear the shame of her sin, and be a warning to others to keep them from the same transgression.

12:15 Journeyed not - Which was a testimony of respect to her both from God and from the people, God so ordering it, partly lest she should be overwhelmed by such a publick rebuke from God, and partly lest, she being a prophetess, the gift of prophesy should come into contempt.
