2And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
3Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons.
What are they saying he masturbated himself to death .....That's dedication, mind you he has come from a long line of wankers.
4Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.
5And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.
6And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
7The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.
Has Moses suddenly got a different imaginary friend ? Or is it just a lucid moment, a while ago, I would have expected him to sequester the family riches. Moses suddenly seems to be a different person. OK.He has a few minor quirks, such as a quest for world domination, but on the whole seems lacking in your basic madness. Then again another interpretation could be possible........Neurosyphillis
But if that was the case he would have lived too long so he was just plain mental.
8And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.
Strange..... god suddenly has some rights for the female of the species, could it be one of gods voices has been replaced by a younger, hornier version.
9And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.
10And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren.
11And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses.
12And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.
I gotta ask Did god not give the world to Adam and all his decendants ? If he did, then why has he gone back on his word to the rest of mankind ? I thought he told Noah to go forth and multiply, now he is telling Moses to go forth and Massacre. I would have thought though If you knew everything why would you keep fucking up and why would you keep changing your mind ?
13And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.
14For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
15And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,
16Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
17Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
18And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;
19And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.
20And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
21And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.
22And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:23And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
What is al this laying of hands business ? I know christian fuckwits do it for their ridiculous pseudo healing bullshit but how is that part of this ?
I suppose it could be yet another verse the catholic preisthood use as excuses for "laying their hands" on somebodies son ?
