is the "fourth book of Moses" in the
Pentateuch. This book has also been known as the
"book of journeyings" and "the book of
murmurings". Its name stems from the two numberings
of the Israelites (one on Mount Sinai and the other on
the plains of Moab.) The main part of this book,
however, deals with the experiences that the Israelites
had as they wandered in the wilderness. The generation
that entered the wilderness became rebellious and the
Lord disciplined them by not letting them enter the
promise land. After forty years of wandering, the second
generation was prepared to do what their parents had
failed to do. The question is would they succeed or
would they copy the mistakes of their fathers? This book
ends on a positive note. They would succeed and inherit
the promised land of Canaan at last!
