Wesley's Notes for Numbers 26:14


26:14 Twenty two thousand and two hundred - No tribe decreased so much as Simeon's. From fifty nine thousand and three hundred it sunk to twenty two thousand and two hundred, little more than a third part of what it was. One whole family of that tribe, (Ohad mentioned #Exo 6:15|) was extinct in the wilderness. Some think most of the twenty four thousand, cut off by the plague for the iniquity of Peor, were of that tribe. For Zimri, a ring - leader in that iniquity, was a prince of that tribe. Simeon is not mentioned in Moses's blessing, #Deu 33:1 |- 29. And the lot of that tribe in Canaan was inconsiderable, only a canton out of Judah's lot, #Jos 19:9|.

    Verses 10 and 11: The sons of Korah did not join their father in rebellion and it saved their lives. Loyalty to family should never be greater than loyalty to Jehovah God.

    April, I know I am a bit late but Aaron died at the top of Mt Hor. Numbers 20:28

    It would be intersting to have seen what Israel looked like before, because now Israel is across the Globe, I mean how did Earth look before we were all concieved kind of thing, I notice it didnt mention Aaron dying, verses 59-61, just his 2 sons. I wonder if God has ever wept, hes repented for the exsistence of man before, Jesus wept, but I guess its a flesh thing?, God can get angry and jealous.
