Greetings, yet again to one and all, from “Lidj Yefdi” (pronounced Lij; Yêf-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to seek insight) into the study of the Scriptures.  So, with this Hebrew Shabbat(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied the Torah portion of W(V)’zot HaBerachah – וְזֹאת הַבְּרָכָהon the 19th – יט, & the 20th – כ, of the month of Tishreï – תִּשְׁרִי, in the year of 5780. (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon)  From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation, where the current year is 2012/7512; these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known, also as, YeBâräkäbát Bäräkät Y’hich Nát – የባረከባት በረከት ይህች ናት.  This would calculate as the 19th – ፲፱, & the 20th – ፳, of the month of TíQímt – ጥቅምት.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet – ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez – (ግእዝ).

I welcome you all to a new regeneration of cycle Torah readings!  This is another one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (pronounced Lij, Yef-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to seek insight) into the study of the Scriptures.  So,with this Hebrew Shabbot (or Shabbat) we move into the opening of the Torah portion with Naso – נָשֹׂא, on the 11th יא, & the 12th יב, of the month of Sïw[v]án-(סִיוָן) in the year of 5776. (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon)  From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation, where the current year is 2008/7508; these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as W’säd – ውሰድ, on the 10th – ፲, & on the 11th – ፲፩, of the month (ወርኀ) of Sänæy – ሰኔ.  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet – ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez – ግእዝ).

Readings:

Numbers 4: 21- 7:89

Judges 13: 2-25

Acts 21: 17-26

Naso, the study portion of the Scriptures for this Sabbath, deals with the collecting of the numbers of the children of Israel.  Moses, was instructed by God, to number the children of Israel by Hebrew tribal lineage(family[-ies]).  And so, did he and his brother Aaron.

naso - parsha (Camp Israel)

All of the tribes, were assembled and numbered but, the Levite tribe, was to be not counted along with the Tribes of Israel, but to be numbered of their own families for the service of Tabernacle.  While in the wilderness, the tribe of Le(w)vi, were to be of Aaron’s line, and serve God and the children of Israel as the priesthood.

[Numb. 4: 21-28]

Now, in a sense, this “numbering” was more like completing a type of census.  The numbering of the priesthood, those able men who should serve in the office of the Tabernacle, from age thirty-to-fifty.  After the counting was complete, the duties of the priesthood were listed to the specific sections of the families of Levites(priesthood).

The priestly duties were assigned to families of the Levites where; the Gershonites, were to keep the charge of the curtains and coverings of the Tabernacle, the hangings for the doors of the court, and for the gate of the court round about the altar, the cords and all the instruments of the service.

[Numb. 4: 24-28]

[Numb. 4: 29-33]

Now, the Kohathites, were to be numbered within the families of Levites(priesthood) but their responsibilities in service were laid out by God, from the previous portion of the Scripture study.

[Numb. 4: 1-20]

Sanctuary of the Tabernacle

When Aaron and his sons, had made coverings for all of the sanctuary, and all the vessels, as the camp set forward {[to move]}; after that the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. 

[Numb. 4: 15-20;  Chpt. 4: 34-37]

Then, God instructed Moses and Aaron, along with the assistance of the priesthood to purify the camp of the children of Israel.  Helping the children of Israel to heal through keeping the statutes and commandments of God, and purging themselves, being a sanctified people to their God. The Hebrews also, learned the ways in which, they were to interact with each other; making amends if one was to offend another.

[Numb. 5: 1-10]

If a husband were to accuse his wife, in a fit of jealousy of being unfaithful, [the Sotah סוטה ]was a means to bring clarity to the situation.

Also, the vow of the Nazirite, was a focus point of this study portion, as God spoke to Moses in instructing the children of Israel.  God said to Moses, if any of the children of Israel wish to separate themselves to God by a vow, then there were rules to follow in accordance to such.

[Numb. 6: 1-21]

The priestly blessing that was also told to Moses by God.  Moses, was to teach Aaron and his sons, the blessing so that they should perform service of blessing the children of Israel, to put God’s name upon them, so they could receive it.

[Numb. 6: 24-26]

All things going into their rightful places, ordered by God’s word; from there, the Tabernacle was consecrated as Moses completed setting up the Tabernacle, anointing it and all of the instruments for the services.  the Princes of Israel, or the twelve(12) heads of their fathers households, brought each of their own offerings from the tribes they came out of.

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot (or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to the opening of the Torah portion with Tetẓ’av(w)eh – תְּצַוֶּה.  On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5776, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 10th – י, & on the 11thיא, of the month Adar – אֲדָר, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2007/2027/7507, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2007/2027/7507, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the 11th – ፲፩, & the 12th – ፲፪, on the (ወርኀ) month of የካቲት (Yekateet).  In the Scriptures, what is also known as Izzäzâchäw – እዘዛቸው.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet – ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez – (ግእዝ).

Readings:

Exodus 27:20- 30:10

Ezekiel 43:10-27

Hebrews 13:10-17

Now, in summation of the study we have in front of us; Moses is told by God that the children of Israel are to complete the construction of a sanctuary in the wilderness.  Other instruments and furniture, for the Tabernacle, that would be needed included: olive oil for the lampstand in what would be known as the Holy Place.

[Ex. 27: 20]

[Ex. 25: 31]And thou shalt make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work shall the candlestick be made: his shaft, and his branches, his bowls, his knops, and his flowers, shall be of the same.

Also, in this portion of the study of the Scriptures, the subject deals mostly with the “everlasting flame” of the candlestick.

[Ex. 25:31-40]

[Hebrews 12: 29]"...For our GOD is a consuming fire..."

Olive Oil(oil of anointing [Ex.25:6]) was to be used for light, including the other furniture

The priesthood is also established in the heritage of the Levites(Hebrew Israelite Tribe of Levi), along with the priestly garments that were to be constructed & worn only when service in the Tabernacle was to be performed.

brestplate of hakohen(High Priest)

Moses, by the instruction of God, ordains Aaron, his brother, to become the High Priest, along with his sons and the rest of his descendants. Here, Aaron’s wife, Elisheba, whom was the daughter of Amminadab ben Judah(son of Judah), sister to Nahshon ben Amminadab(son of Amminadab), of the tribe of Judah, became the Matriarch of the Cohanim(priests).

Egyptian Diety Khepri

The sacred covering of the Ark of The Covenant, which the Cohanim were to give service to on behalf the children of Israel, is called Kapporeth – כפורת, so finding out why the picture placed above, is of what might be known as Khepri, I’ll leave it up to anyone who’s curious enough to take a look for themselves. I would elaborate more on how linguistics also play a part in the understanding of Scripture, but that’s pretty apparent. Though, it may seem, out of context that there could possibly be more connections of the Hebrew/Jewish thought and practice, to the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries or the traditional Judeo-Christian aspects of this, it meets more points of similarity than most people can see. For example, in Hebrew, the “Holy of Holies” is named as the Kodesh HaKodeshiyimקֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים , and semantically similar in the ancient Ge’ez old Ethiopic language of the Ethiopian-Jews and Ethiopia entirely, the same is called the Q’edeste Q’ddusan – ቀደስተ ቅዱሳን.

So, with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied either the Torah portion of Korach/KoraKH‘/Koraḥ-קֹרַח, from the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5775 year, this Sabbath day would probably be accounted for as the 2nd-ב, & the 3rd-ג, of the month of Tammuz-תמוז.  (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as Q'()oräyቆሬ.  This would calculate as the 12th-፲፪, & the  13th-፲፫, of the month(ወርኀ) of Seney’-ሰኔ.  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Now, in continuance of our studies of Torah, we come to the parsha(portion) of Korah’.  Now, in this study of the Scriptures, a Levite, named Korah’ (ben Izhar- son of Izhar), joins himself wth Dathan & Abiram, who are Reubinites(of the Tribe of Reuben), and two-hundred & fifty princes of Israel.  This group began a rebellion, that challenged the authority of Moses and Aaron, among the children of Israel.

[Numb. 16:1-19]

korach - parsha [Lewiim - descent]

God instructed Moses and Aaron, to get away from Korah and his rebellious few, and tell the children of Israel to separate themselves as well; for he would consume them

God then, spoke to Moses to tell Eleazar(Aaron’s son; a Priest of Levi), to take the censors of Korah, which they took in the Tabernacle for the fire and the incense, and make them broad plates for a covering of the altar.  “They shall be a sign to the children of Israel.”

[Numb. 16:36-40]

korach - parsha [eleazar priest]

The next day the children of Israel, murmured against Moses & Aaron, saying, “…they killed people of God…,” and then a plague fell upon them(Israel) and more died, even after those of Korah’s Rebellion suffered judgment.

[Numb. 16:41-50]

God then, instructed Moses to gather the staffs of the Princes Of Israel; one for each of the tribes (12) and adding one more the tribe of Levi, in which, Aaron would be the head.  (making that thirteen [13] staff-rods).  God would then choose the staff to show where he would place his authority among the children of Israel, to put an end to their murmuring.  Moses, took the staffs and placed them in the Tabernacle of Witness.

[Numb. 17: 1-7]

korach - parsha [staffs of the Princes of Israel]

The very next morning, Moses entered into the Tabernacle, only to find that Aaron’s rod, had blossomed and brought forth buds, and also yielded almonds.  Moses brought forth the staff of Aaron, by God’s command to be a witness/memorial to Israel of God’s will way.  Whomsoever go against God’s way would not share in his rest.

[Numb. 17:8-13]

God then spoke to Aaron, saying, that he and his sons (lineage), were to perform the duties of service in the Tabernacle, so no wrath would anymore fall upon Israel.  The Levites were to administer the reception of of offerings made by the children of Israel to God in the Tabernacle; but they wouldn’t have an inheritance as the rest of the children of Israel(Tribes) had.  The reason being was & is, because the “tithes” of Israel would be given to them by God.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to the Torah portion of Yitro-יִתְרוֹ.  On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5775, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 17th-יז, & the 18th-יח, of the month of Shebet-שְׁבָט, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2007/2027/7507, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the 29th-፳፱, & the 30th-፴, on the (ወርኀ)month of T’r(ጥር).  In the Scriptures, what is also known as Yotor-ዮቶር.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar(with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).

Now, for in summation of the study we have in front of us; In this portion of the study of the Scriptures, Jethro(Yitro in Hebrew; Yotor in Amharic), Moses’ father-in-law, hears the all that has happened in Egypt. The miracles of Israel’s departure from Egypt, GOD’s guidance through the wilderness, & his help in the defeat of the enemies of the children of Israel.

Moses-And-Tzipporah-the-prince-of-the-egypt

Now, the children of Israel have sojourned to the dwelling of Moses’ wife(Ts’pporah) and father-in-law’s, land in Midian & pitched camp. Jethro, then advises Moses on structuring the command of the children of Israel into a sort of order of civil officers, after bringing his wife and two sons(Gershom; who’s name has the meaning of “I have been an foreigner in a strange land,” & Eliazar; who’s name has the meaning of, “the GOD of my father, is mine help & delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh”) from Midian to the wilderness.

Jethro, then entreats the GOD of Israel, sighting him as greater then all gods. Then Jethro took a burnt offering and sacrificed to the GOD of Israel, & broke bread with Moses, Aaron, & all the elders of Israel.

Moses, takes heed to his father-in-law’s words, & assembles all the tribes of Israel and appoints heads over them.  These heads(of the tribes) would discern small matters and only bring matters that were of great concern to Moses, to not wear heavy on him, burdens of an entire nation.

Moshe & the 70 elders of Israel

In the third month, of the coming out of Egypt, Israel came to the wilderness of Sinai, from Rephidim. Moses went up the Mount, in the wilderness & GOD spoke to him, calling for Israel to become a nation of priests & a holy nation [Ex. 19:5]

Jewish/Hebrew calendarformulated at Hebrew4Christians.com

Whenever GOD came to speak to Moses, to lay out instructions for Israel to follow, GOD came in a cloud of fire upon the Mount in Sinai. Moses then, took instructions of GOD to sanctify the children of Israel & to command them not to come near the mountain, for if they did, they would surely be put to death. Man or beast, should not come near the mountain in the wilderness.

[Ex. 19:1-13]

yitro - parsha [wilderness]

The GOD of Israel also gives to Moses and the Israelites, what is known as the Ten Commandments. No one else goes up, upon the mountain to meet GOD but Moses. Aaron, his sons & the elders of Israel come with Moses but they leave Moses to go further up to receive the instructions at the height of the mountain.

So, with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied either the Torah portion of Bamidbar-בְּמִדְבַּר, from a Jewish/Hebrew mode of study for those out in the diaspora, living outside of Jerusalem or Israel this Sabbath would be accounted for as the 23rd-כג, & the 24th-כד, of the month of Iyar-אִייָר. [“Iyar,” from its Shemitic root is an Akkadian name “Ayarru“- which has a literal meaning in English as “blossom or to blossom“; Iyar is also referred to as “Zi(w)vזיו“= from its Hebrew origin means, “to light or glow“]  (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) From an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as Midre Beda-ምድረ በዳ, on the 15th-፲፭, & the 16th-፲፮, of the month(ወርኀ) of G’nbot-ግንቦት.  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Forwarding, in our studies, we’ve come to another book in the Torah.  This study portion has brought us to Bamidbar(translated into English as; Numbers; or Midbar-מִדְבַּר =pasture/open field/desert, & Ba(e’)= בְּ , with Midbar, making the Hebrew word BaMidbar, either meaning, “In the Book of Numbers,” or “In the wilderness“)/the same in the Ethiopian-Amharic language with the word, Midre Beda-ምድረ በዳ= the wilderness”.

After completing the Book of Leviticus, (which by Ras Tafari interpretation, could be known also as the “Livitiy Book“) the over-standing of what encompasses the Leviticus, is the blessing and cursing, by way of the abiding in the laws and commandments set forth for the children of Israel.

Moses & Aaron also received instructions from God, not to number the tribe of Lew(v)i with the rest of the children of Israel.  They were to have a separate responsibility among the people.  Just as they were to administer the duties of priests in Israel, in the Tabernacle, they were to continue in that way.  The tribes were then assembled orderly into an encampment around the Tabernacle.

[Numb. 1:49- 2:34]

In this encampment every tribe would raise a standard(or banner), with an ensign for the tribes.

[Numb. 2: 1-32]

Moses & Aaron, were to also assemble the Tribe of Le(w)i and consecrate them to keep the charge of Aaron(the High Priest), and for the entire congregation of Israel.  They were to keep the instruments of the Tabernacle and perform the service for the congregation.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have more than likely have come to the Torah portion of Korah/KoraKH’- , for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  From the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5773, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the of the month of Siw(v)an-סִיוָן, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) but, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as ቆሬ-Q’orey, for the 29th(፳፱) & 1st() days of the ወራት(months)- ግንቦት (Ginbot) & ሰኔ (Seney).  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Now, in continuance of our studies of Torah, we come to the parsha(portion) of Korah’.  Now, in this study of the Scriptures, a Levite, named Korah’ (ben Izhar- son of Izhar), joins himself wth Dathan & Abiram, who are Reubinites(of the Tribe of Reuben), and two-hundred & fifty princes of Israel.  This group began a rebellion, that challenged the authority of Moses and Aaron, among the children of Israel.

God then, spoke to Moses to tell Eleazar(Aaron’s son; a Priest of Levi), to take the censors of Korah, which they took in the Tabernacle for the fire and the incense, and make them broad plates for a covering of the altar.  “They shall be a sign to the children of Israel.”

[Numb. 16:36-40]

The next day the children of Israel, murmured against Moses & Aaron, saying, “…they killed people of God…,” and then a plague fell upon them(Israel) and more died, even after those of Korah’s Rebellion suffered judgment.

[Numb. 16:41-50]

God then, instructed Moses to gather the staffs of the Princes Of Israel; one for each of the tribes (12) and adding one more the tribe of Levi, in which, Aaron would be the head.  (making that thirteen [13] staff-rods).  God would then choose the staff to show where he would place his authority among the children of Israel, to put an end to their murmuring.  Moses, took the staffs and placed them in the Tabernacle of Witness.

The very next morning, Moses entered into the Tabernacle, only to find that Aaron’s rod, had blossomed and brought forth buds, and also yielded almonds.  Moses brought forth the staff of Aaron, by God’s command to be a witness/memorial to Israel of God’s will way.  Whomsoever go against God’s way would not share in his rest.

God then spoke to Aaron, saying, that he and his sons (lineage), were to perform the duties of service in the Tabernacle, so no wrath would anymore fall upon Israel.  The Levites were to administer the reception of of offerings made by the children of Israel to God in the Tabernacle; but they wouldn’t have an inheritance as the rest of the children of Israel(Tribes) had.  The reason being was & is, because the “tithes” of Israel would be given to them by God

[Numb. 18:1-24]

God, also instructed Moses to tell the Levites, that of the “tithes” of the children of Israel, they(the Priesthood) were to offer a Heave offering to God; or a tenth of all the tithes, of Israel and give them to Aaron.  The offering was to be of its best condition; & for the reward of service the Priesthood would be able to partake in the offering in all of their households, bearing no sins, neither polluting the the holy things of the children of Israel.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have more than likely have come to the Torah portion of ShelaKH’-LeKH’a-שְׁלַח-לְךָ , for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  From the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in the year 5773, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 22nd & 23rd of the month of Siw(v)an-סִיוָן, for this week, in this mode of study; for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem or Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) but, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known as Lak’ Tilkalachihu-ላክ ትልካላችሁ, 16th(፲፮) & 17th(፲፯) day of ወርኀ(month)- ግንቦት (Ginbot).  The Ethiopic calendar, which is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church(the other language being Ge’ez-ግእዝ).

Readings:

Numbers 13:1- 15:41

Joshua 2:1-24

Hebrews 3:7- 4:1

In continuation from the last study-portion, we have come now to the 13th chapter of Numbers.  In this study, Moses is now instructed by God to send the chosen Princes of Israel to search/spy/scout the land(Canaan), which God had promised to the children of Israel.

[Numb. 13: 1-16]

The spies or scouts were to instructed to go the south mountain*[note: to be discussed(TBD)], to see the land(how it looked/upon view), see what people dwelt there, & if the people there were strong or weak, if there were few or many. They were also instructed to see if the land be a good land, what cities in the land were inhabited, and if those cities (inhabited) were “strongly held.”  They were to be “of good courage” and bring fruits of the land to prove that it had been seen, for it was the due season of the “first-fruits.”

[Numb. 13: 17-20]

*TBD= Ras Tafari Renaissance, comes to a note that could be interpreted, for futher study.  Numbers chapter 13, verse 17; gives instruction by Moses(whom received it from God) to the men, who were scout the land of Canaan, to “Get you up this way, southward and go up to the mountain.” Ras Tafari Renaissance “dibbled & dabbled,” interacting more with the Hebrew Bible(תּוֹרָה), studying the Scriptures from one of its Hebrew origin{language} & come to the word Negeb(v)-נֶּגֶב , when the Scripture speaks of the mountain southward, which the men sent by Moses were to see the land.  The Negeb(v) desert of southern modern Israel is indeed mountainous.*

The scouts took up the fruits of the land, as instructed, at the Brook of Eshol.  They took the cluster of grapes, pomegranates, and figs; then they returned to the wilderness where Israel was encamped & gave their reports of the land (which they stayed 40 days) from their searching.

[Numb. 13: 23-30]

first fruits of the land

Caleb brought a good report to Moses, Aaron, and those of the congregation that heard him.  Even, so much so that Caleb said, “…Let us go up at once, and possess it, for we are well able to overcome it…”[Numb. 13: 30]  But, the men that went with him brought a evil/bad report (evil-because it was wrapped in lies tied to some of the truth); “…the land eat(eth) up the inhabitants…, [all the people were of great stature]…”

[Numb. 13: 30-33]

At the sounds of the ten evil/bad reports of the scouts, who came to give their assessment on the land which was promised to the Hebrews; the children of Israel wept and began to murmur against Moses and Aaron, for they saw the ten evil/bad reports as truth, also that God had brought them out of Egypt and into the wilderness to die.  The children of Israel had planted seeds in their own minds from the bad reports that their wives and their children, would become prey, as they fell by the sword.  They even saw it may have been better to return to Egypt.  So much so, that they spoke to each other to make a captain that would campaign to take them back to Egypt.

[Numb. 14: 1-4]

Moses and Aaron, then fell on their face before the congregation of Hebrews, for they could not comprehend why the children of Israel, would go as far to think, the things they were thinking.  Then Joshua and Caleb, told the truth about the report on the scouting of the land, the people (the Amorites, Jebusites, & Hittites resided in the mountains: the Amalekites to the south: & also the Canaanites resided near the sea and the coast of the Jordan [river].

Moses then, interceded for the children of Israel and because of his pleading words to God, their lives were spared.  But, God would not allow them to enter into the Land of Promise.  Forty years, in the wilderness, would their children wander bearing the whoredoms of their parents.

The laws and statues, rules and regulations for the offerings/sacrifices that were to be administered upon entry into the land that was promised, were reiterated to the children of Israel.

[Numb. 15: 1-36]

God then spoke to Moses, telling him to instruct the children of Israel to make fringes upon the borders of their garments; the fringes were also to have a ribband of blue.  These fringes, with the ribband of blue were for the children of Israel to keep throughout their generations.  The fringes were to be a reminder of the commandments of God, and that they should observe them and do(keep) them.  The Israelites were to look[observe] upon the fringes, and keep[do] the commandments of God; to not seek after their own hearts and eyes, which would take them ‘a whoring’ away.
