Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures

Numbers 32

 

 

Verses 1-42

Numbers 32:23 But if ye will not do Song of Solomon , behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

Numbers 32:23 — "and be sure your sin will find you out" - Comments- Note these insightful words by Frances J. Roberts regarding Numbers 32:23.

"‘Be sure your sin will find you out', the Bible states. One of the most common ways that hidden sin is revealed is through the maladies of the body. More arthritis is brought about by resentments and ill-will than is caused by wrong diet. More asthma is caused by repressed fury than by pollen or cat fur." 37]

37] Frances J. Roberts, Come Away My Beloved (Ojai, California: King's Farspan, Inc, 1973), 93.

Again:

"I have sent My Holy Spirit into your hearts now that He might judge your hearts daily, so that ye may be accounted worthy to escape the day of wrath. For if ye walk now in the light of My revealed truth and if ye judge yourselves, ye shall not be judged at that coming day. And if thou shalt allow the searching eye of the Holy Spirit to find thee out, then it shall not be said to thee, ‘thy sins shall find thee out'." 38]

38] Frances J. Roberts, Come Away My Beloved (Ojai, California: King's Farspan, Inc, 1973), 171.

Numbers 32:41 And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the small towns thereof, and called them Havothjair.

Numbers 32:41Word Study on "Havothjair" - PTW says "Havothjair means, "tent villages of Jair."

Scripture References - Note:

Deuteronomy 3:14, "Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day."
