<p class=”MsoNormal”>The book of numbers continues the history of the people of Israel after they escaped from Egypt, and it tells what happened during the forty years when the Israelites lived in the desert on their journey from Mount Sinai to Canaan, this book is named “Numbers” because it begins with Moses counting the Israelites to find out the number of the people in each of the twelve tribes. Numbers was about people who were rebellious and discouraged and who refused to believe that the Lord would take care of them But the book also shows how the Lord protected them in war and gave them food and water in them, <span style=”mso-spacerun: yes;”> </span>in the barren desert. The Lord wanted the Israelites to realize that he did not want them to be destroyed; he wanted to bless them, just as Aaron prayed.</p>
<p class=”MsoNormal”>I pray that the LORD will bless and protect you, and that he will show you mercy and kindness. May the LORD be good to you and give you peace. (6: 24-26)</p>
