Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible

Numbers Overview

 

 


THE FOURTH BOOK OF MOSES, CALLED NUMBERS.

THE Jews, as usual, denominate this book from the first word in it, וידבר uideber; but the Greek interpreters, who have been generally followed, call it, the book of Numbers, from the account of the numbering or mustering the people contained in it. The whole comprises a history of about thirty-eight years; though most of the transactions here related, happened in the first and last of those years. Many additional laws, relating to the conduct of the Israelites, both in civil and religious matters, together with a repetition of some of the principal laws before mentioned, are found in this book.
