Day 6

Written on 06/19/2020


Numbers 15:17-26

17 Adonai said to Moshe, 

18 “Speak to the people of Isra’el; tell them, ‘When you enter the land where I am bringing you 

19 and eat bread produced in the land, you are to set aside a portion as a gift for Adonai

20 Set aside from your first dough a cake as a gift; set it aside as you would set aside a portion of the grain from the threshing-floor. 

21 From your first dough you will give Adonai a portion as a gift through all your generations.

22 “‘If by mistake you fail to observe all these mitzvot that Adonai has spoken to Moshe, 

23 yes, everything that Adonai has ordered you to do through Moshe, from the day Adonai gave the order and onward through all your generations, 

24 then, if it was done by mistake by the community and was not known to them, the whole community is to offer one young bull for a burnt offering as a fragrant aroma to Adonai, with its grain and drink offerings, in keeping with the rule, and one male goat as a sin offering. 

25 The cohen is to make atonement for the whole community of the people of Isra’el; and they will be forgiven; because it was a mistake; and they have brought their offering, an offering made by fire, to Adonai, and their sin offering before Adonai for their mistake. 

26 The whole community of the people of Isra’el will be forgiven, likewise the foreigner staying with them; because for all the people it was a mistake.

 

Hebrews 3:7-19

Therefore, as the Ruach HaKodesh says,

“Today, if you hear God’s voice,
don’t harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel
on that day in the Wilderness when you put God to the test.
Yes, your fathers put me to the test;
they challenged me, and they saw my work for forty years!
10 Therefore, I was disgusted with that generation —
I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray,
they have not understood how I do things’;
11 in my anger, I swore
that they would not enter my rest.”

12 Watch out, brothers, so that there will not be in any one of you an evil heart lacking trust, which could lead you to apostatize from the living God! 

13 Instead, keep exhorting each other every day, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you will become hardened by the deceit of sin. 

14 For we have become sharers in the Messiah, provided, however, that we hold firmly to the conviction we began with, right through until the goal is reached.

15 Now where it says,

“Today, if you hear God’s voice,
don’t harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel,” 

16 who were the people who, after they heard, quarreled so bitterly? All those whom Moshe brought out of Egypt. 

17 And with whom was God disgusted for forty years? Those who sinned — yes, they fell dead in the Wilderness

18 And to whom was it that he swore that they would not enter his rest? Those who were disobedient. 

19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of lack of trust.
