Psalm: 35

Meditation

Numbers: Rebellion against God usually results in physical death – as in this case. The rebellion of Dathan and Abiram (nicely portrayed in DeMille’s The Ten Commandments) and their cohorts are consumed out of the earth.  Then the people grumbled (yet again) but now the LORD is “fed up”. He tells Moses and Aaron to step aside while He destroys Israel. Here Moses pleads with the LORD a bit like Abraham bargaining for the people of Sodom (see Genesis 18). God relents as “Moses stepped into the breach.”

Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16

New Testament: Romans 4:13-25

Old Testament: Numbers 16:36-50
