    That passage was known as the Priestly Blessing. Today, it's sometimes spoken as a Benediction at the end of a Church service.

    Re: verse 9, are we to assume he touched the dead body and therefore sinned?
  • Stanjett on Numbers 6
    Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD: Man or a woman? Every time it mentions a Nazarite after this verse it is either he, him or his. I know women make vows but it don't say they was Nazarites.
  • Mable on Numbers 6
    Its saying, we must sacrifice these wine, and not eat grapes for a while until we get these things of strong drinks out our system, and that we eat unleavened bread and meats and cakes and to make a change of the sacrificing ourselves. And we must keep ourselves on a sacrificial when we are coming into God and keep it like that and so that we help others

    V-22-26: It is so important for us to bless our: Families: Spiritual Siblings:
    the lost: God Loves, and cares for us all: we should too: we should never
    be discouraged: keep on praying: one day they will cry out to God as we did:
    God in His Mercy will draw them to Him:
    all things are possible with God: we cried out to Him: He reached out to us:
    God the Holy Spirit Wooed us: we Accepted!

    "I AM" Or they speaking of the 12 lost tribes of Israel that wore scattered throughout the 4corners of the world what and who you so called the black man although the shades of our skins are vast by nature the melanin that protect us from the sun which causes others cancer us that were brought across the ocean in bondage (slavery) and we shall suffered and still are suffering from wickedness 🕊.
  • Michael A. on Numbers 6
    The vow is vow from 1 Samuel chapter 1.
    Samuel and Samson sinned. The birds-turtles are same as in Leviticus chapter 12 that is done for man child on 8th day when circumcised.
    Luke chapter 2 Jesus Christ is born and 8th day circumcised. Points to Jesus Christ being holy from womb and without sin.
    God has shown me this.
  • Irene123 on Numbers 6
    Vs. 24-26 is a benediction. When a baby is brought to our church for the 1st time and he/she and the parents are prayed for at the altar - it's called a dedication; the baby is being dedicated t0 the Lord, along with the parents - to bring that child up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Num. 6 benediction is not used; just a prayer from the heart.
  • Dorothea benson on Numbers 6

  • Maggie Blaney on Numbers 6:26
    In Church of Scotland ritual, after babies were christened, the congregation used to sing this verse. Any idea why this would be used, or was it just appropriate?
  • Insight 777 on Numbers 6
    This chapter may be speaking of the process of Christians and Jews working together for a common cause. The separation may be symbolic of Jewish Christians. What is important is the head must be holy, without deceit or lies, and must be in sober agreement to share loyalty as allies not enemies. I think verse 6 means the Jews do not want the Christian Jews in their military as soldiers and they do not want any vengeance killing stated in verse 7 in case of a family member dying or somehow being killed. They will be treated as allies sharing information. They will be required to be under the Jewish laws of procedure-government and not to consider themselves separate from that if they live in Israel.
  • Thomas on Numbers 6
    That are real good to me
  • Cam on Numbers 6
    Notice the purpose of shaving the head was to place ones hair to be burned in the peace offering Also I see something I have over looked in the past that the Nazarite vow seemed to be much like taking a vow of separation much like going on a retreat did the Nazarite vow and separation come to an end after the blessing extended via Aron
  • Jon on Numbers 6
    I think God is saying to stay away from the ways of the world, from over indulgence of the things that tempt us into sin. Keep your focus on what God has to offer and to follow his word and will. God asks us to not allow temptation and influences of worldly ways to affect our focus and decisions we make. In the old testament there are rules and guidelines set by God and the church to follow. Many of the rules of the church are different or more strict than what is said in the New testament. Jesus teaches us to follow his word, his will, and follow the path he has chosen for us. Remember we are saved thru the Grace of what God has given us not by the works we do . As time went on the rules and traditions of the church became more important than the love God has for us. More than what Jesus preached and taught. Jesus was judged because he didn't fully follow the traditions of the church. Don't forget that the love and grace God shows us is how we should live not thru the traditions of the world or church. We are saved thru grace not by works as it says in Ephesians

  • Mohlotsi on Numbers 6
    Numbers chapter 6 verse 5 ,explains the image of Nazaree how God is expecting them to be ,and the most part How Jesus Himself looks like.When I' saying Jesus remember on revelation how did they discribe Him and his hair.
  • Peter L. Griffiths on Numbers 6:21
    The author of the New Testament was clearly influenced by the Book of Numbers chapters 5 and 6 in formulating the character of Jesus Christ. Chapter 5 describes the procedure for investigating a wife suspected of infidelity. Chapter 6 describes the procedure for taking the Nazarite Oath, thus giving the person a priestly status. Both these relate to Jesus Christ who is consequently described as being born in a non-existent place called Nazareth.
  • James olutayo on Numbers 6
    This is not applicable in present day christainity because Jesus Christ has brought a new testament the old has been made obsolete. All those things were the shadow of the real thing which we now have.Please read Hebrews chapters 7,8 & 9. God bless you
  • Caz on Numbers 6:26
    I was praying when I was ill, and listening to Stuart Towsend version of "it is well with my soul"and I felt God say "lift up your counternance" and the sense it would help me get well, as I felt awful I raised my head up and smiled as if to look up at Jesus and immediately i felt healing love, and crying I looked up the word countenance and found this in numbers, God blows my mind, praise be to God for He is good!
