Numbers at a Glance

Yahweh brings glory to Himself by revealing His wrath and righteous judgment (Num 11:33; 12:10-15; 14:22-23; 16:28-33; 16:41-49) against the sin of the sons of Israel in punishing them for their continual rebellion (Num 14:1-4, 9; 17:10; 20:3-5, 10, 24; 27:14).

And Yahweh brings glory to Himself by revealing His grace, mercy, forgiveness, and covenant faithfulness in preserving them despite their rebellion (Num 23:8-10; 22:12; 21:8-9; 25:11; 15:2, 18-19, 41; 27:12; 32:22).

’s great sin will not abate Yahweh’s desire to glorify Himself by fulfilling His promises to bless His people.

The counsel of Yahweh stands forever,
The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh,
The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
- Psalm 33:11-12 -
