Parashat 34 Portion 97 Bemidbar – Numbers 1:1-2:13 Ezek 47:13-23 Luke 15:1-7


Bar’chu et YHVH ha-m’vorach, Baruch YHVH ha-m’vorach l’O’lam va-ed!
Baruch ata YHVH Eloheinu melech ha-olam asher bachar banu m’kol ha-amim, v’na-tan lanu eht Torah-to. Baruch atah YHVH, noteyn ha-Torah. Ameyn.”

(Bless YHVH the blessed One; Blessed is YHVH, the blessed One for all eternity. Blessed are you, YHVH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, you have selected us from among all the peoples, and have given us your Torah.)

The title of this portion “Bemidbar”- wilderness, is also associated with two other Hebrew words “devar” to speak and “davar” a word. This then can also be understood to mean “a word in the wilderness” This meaning is poignantly revealed as YHVH ushers His bride into the wilderness.

Could it be that YHVH will once again call His beloved bride into the wilderness to establish covenant faithfulness once again?

MessageTranslation:

Hos 2:14  "And now, here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to start all over again. I'm taking her back out into the wilderness where we had our first date, and I'll court her.
Hos 2:15  I'll give her bouquets of roses. I'll turn Heartbreak Valley into Acres of Hope. She'll respond like she did as a young girl, those days when she was fresh out of Egypt.
Hos 2:16  "At that time"--this is YHVH’s Message still-- "you'll address me, 'Dear husband!' Never again will you address me, 'My slave-master!'
Hos 2:17  I'll wash your mouth out with soap, get rid of all the dirty false-god names, not so much as a whisper of those names again. (like the days of the week named after false deities)
Hos 2:18  At the same time I'll make a peace treaty between you and wild animals and birds and reptiles, And get rid of all weapons of war. Think of it! Safe from beasts and bullies!
Hos 2:19  And then I'll marry you for good--forever! I'll marry you true and proper, in love and tenderness.
Hos 2:20  Yes, I'll marry you and neither leave you nor let you go. You'll know me, YHVH, for who I really am.

YHVH keeps a registry of His Bride.

A Good Shepherd always counts His sheep, hear again the words of our Messiah:

Joh 10:4  “And when he has brought out his own sheep, he goes before them. And the sheep follow him, because they know his voice (even those who lived in the world before Yahshua was born).
Joh 10:11  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.
Joh 10:16  “And other sheep I have which are not of this fold – I have to bring them as well, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.1 Footnote: 1Ezek. 34:23, Ezek. 37:24.
Joh 10:27  “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.1 Footnote: 1Rev. 14:4-5.
Joh 10:28  “And I give them everlasting life, and they shall by no means ever perish, and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.
Joh 10:29  “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all. And no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

Num 1:1  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, saying,
Num 1:2  “Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, by their clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male, head by head,
Num 1:3  from twenty years old and above, everyone going out to the army in Yisra’ĕl. Number them by their divisions, you and Aharon.

This book of the Torah – Bamidbar is about YHVH calling and counting His bride to be. This counting or taking of census is expressed in a rather strange Hebrew idiom viz “to count the skulls” see Num 1:2  “Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, by their clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male, head by head (gulguletam)

The Hebrew word for head here is “skulls” or “gulgoleth” Strongs 1538. This is where we get the word “Golgotha” - The message is unchanging forever “only in Messiah can we be counted”

Joh 19:17  And bearing His stake, He went out to the so-called Place of a Skull, which is called in Heḇrew, Golgotha,
Joh 19:18  where they impaled Him, and two others with Him.


Num 1:4  “And a man from every tribe should be with you, each one the head of his father’s house.
Num 1:5  “And these are the names of the men who stand with you. From Re’uḇĕn: Elitsur, son of Sheḏĕy’ur.
Num 1:6  “From Shimʽon: Shelumi’ĕl, son of Tsurishaddai.
Num 1:7  “From Yehuḏah: Naḥshon, son of Amminaḏaḇ.
Num 1:8  “From Yissasḵar: Nethanĕ’l, son of Tsuʽar.
Num 1:9  “From Zeḇulun: Eliyaḇ, son of Ḥĕlon.
Num 1:10  “From the sons of Yosĕph: From Ephrayim: Elishama, son of Ammihuḏ. From Menashsheh: Gamli’ĕl, son of Peḏahtsur.
Num 1:11  “From Binyamin: Aḇiḏan, son of Giḏʽoni.
Num 1:12  “From Dan: Aḥiʽezer, son of Ammishaddai.
Num 1:13  “From Ashĕr: Paḡʽi’ĕl, son of Oḵran.
Num 1:14  “From Gaḏ: Elyasaph, son of Deu’ĕl.
Num 1:15  “From Naphtali: Aḥira, son of Ěnan.”
Num 1:16  These are the ones called from the congregation, leaders of their fathers’ tribes, heads of the thousands of Yisra’ĕl.
Num 1:17  And Mosheh and Aharon took these men who were called by name,
Num 1:18  and they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month. And they declared their ancestry by clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and above, each one head by head. (GULGELOTAM)

Num 1:43  those who were registered of the tribe of Naphtali were fifty-three thousand four hundred.
Num 1:44  These were those registered, whom Mosheh and Aharon registered, with the leaders of Yisra’ĕl, twelve men, each one for his father’s house.
Num 1:45  And all those that were registered of the children of Yisra’ĕl, by their fathers’ houses, from twenty years old and above, everyone going out to the army in Yisra’ĕl,
Num 1:46  all those that were registered were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty.
Num 1:47  But the Lĕwites were not registered among them by their fathers’ tribe,
Num 1:48  because יהוה had spoken to Mosheh, saying,
Num 1:49  “Only the tribe of Lĕwi you do not register, nor take a census of them among the children of Yisra’ĕl.
Num 1:50  “Instead, appoint the Lĕwites over the Dwelling Place of the Witness, over all its furnishings, and over all that belongs to it. They bear the Dwelling Place and all its furnishings, and they attend to it, and camp around the Dwelling Place.
Num 1:51  “And when the Dwelling Place is to go forward, the Lĕwites take it down. And when the Dwelling Place is to be set up, the Lĕwites set it up. And the stranger who comes near is put to death.
Num 1:52  “And the children of Yisra’ĕl shall pitch their tents, everyone by his own camp, everyone by his own banner, according to their divisions,
Num 1:53  but let the Lĕwites camp around the Dwelling Place of the Witness, so that there be no wrath on the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl. And the Lĕwites shall guard the duty of the Dwelling Place of the Witness.”
Num 1:54  And the children of Yisra’ĕl did according to all that יהוה commanded Mosheh, so they did.
Num 2:1  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon, saying,
Num 2:2  “The children of Yisra’ĕl are to camp, each one by his own banner, beside the sign of his father’s house. Let them camp around the Tent of Meeting at a distance.”

Note that now the mixed multitude who had left Mitsrayim/Egypt with them have now been counted in with the tribes of Israel as they are no longer mentioned as a separate group.

Note the profound prophecy of Ezekiel concerning those of us who are grafted into Yisrael/Israel.

Eze 47:21  “And you shall divide this land among yourselves according to the tribes of Yisra’ĕl.
Eze 47:22  “And it shall be that you divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who sojourn in your midst and who bear children among you. And they shall be to you as native-born among the children of Yisra’ĕl – with you they have an inheritance in the midst of the tribes of Yisra’ĕl1. Footnote: 1Isa. 14:1, Isa. 56:6-8, Rom. 11:17-26, Eph. 2:19, Eph. 3:6, Rev. 21:12.
Eze 47:23  “And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger sojourns, there you give him his inheritance,” declares the Master יהוה.

Num 2:3  And on the east side, towards sunrise: those of the banner of the camp of Yehuḏah camp according to their divisions. And the leader of the children of Yehuḏah: Naḥshon, son of Amminaḏaḇ.
Num 2:4  And his army with their registered ones: seventy-four thousand six hundred.
Num 2:5  And those camping next to him is the tribe of Yissasḵar, and the leader of the children of Yissasḵar: Nethanĕ’l, son of Tsuʽar.
Num 2:6  And his army with its registered ones: fifty-four thousand four hundred.
Num 2:7  Then the tribe of Zeḇulun, and the leader of the children of Zeḇulun: Eliyaḇ, son of Ḥĕlon.
Num 2:8  And his army with its registered ones: fifty-seven thousand four hundred.
Num 2:9  All the registered ones of the camp of Yehuḏah, according to their divisions: one hundred and eighty-six thousand four hundred. These depart first.
Num 2:10  On the south side: the banner of the camp of Re’uḇĕn according to their divisions, and the leader of the children of Re’uḇĕn: Elitsur, son of Sheḏĕy’ur.
Num 2:11  And his army with its registered ones: forty-six thousand five hundred.
Num 2:12  And those who camp next to him: the tribe of Shimʽon, and the leader of the children of Shimʽon: Shelumi’ĕl, son of Tsurishaddai.
Num 2:13  And his army with their registered ones: fifty-nine thousand three hundred.

Baruch atah YHVH, Eloheynu, Melech ha-‘Olam, asher natan lanu Toraht-emet, v’chay-yeh o’lam nata-b’tochenu. Baruch atah YHVH, noteyn ha-Torah. Ameyn.”

(Blessed are you YHVH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, you have given us your Torah of truth, and have planted everlasting life within our midst. Blessed are you, YHVH giver of the Torah – Ameyn

Parashat 33 Portion 96 Be Chukatai – Vayikra 26:3-27:34 Yer 16:19-21 Luke 9:57-62


Bar’chu et YHVH ha-m’vorach, Baruch YHVH ha-m’vorach l’O’lam va-ed!
Baruch ata YHVH Eloheinu melech ha-olam asher bachar banu m’kol ha-amim, v’na-tan lanu eht Torah-to. Baruch atah YHVH, noteyn ha-Torah. Ameyn.”

(Bless YHVH the blessed One; Blessed is YHVH, the blessed One for all eternity. Blessed are you, YHVH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, you have selected us from among all the peoples, and have given us your Torah.

This portion is also known as the “tochacha” or solemn warning. “Tochacha” comes from the word “hochacha” which can mean “proof.” The inhabitants of this world may soon witness the proof of ignoring YHVH’s Torah. Ignoring YHVH’s Torah is equal to ignoring YHVH’s Messiah. The most severe judgment imaginable is about to come upon mankind because the Torah of YHVH and His Messiah - Yahshua have been misrepresented or ignored.

Haftarah: Jeremiah 16:19-17:14

Our haftarah portion reminds us that we have inherited folly from our fathers.
Jer 16:19  O יהוה, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress the gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited only falsehood, futility, and there is no value in them.”1 Footnote: 1See Ps. 147:19, Isa. 2:3, Isa. 60:2-3, John 4:22, Rom. 2:20, Rom. 3:2, Rom. 9:4. Zech 8:23

Lev 26:3  ‘If you walk in My laws and guard My commands, and shall do them,

Vs 3 in the Hebrew reads: “if in my statutes (bechukatai) you will walk and my commandments (mitzvoth) you will guard (shamar) and will do them (asah)

Remember a “chuk” or statute is something which is to be engraved in our hearts and minds. We obey these statutes but do not always understand exactly what they mean, for example  the appointments found in Vayikra/Leviticus 23 where we find the words “chukat olam” is used four times – this is a statute forever – In fact some 12 times this phrase is repeated in the Torah. (these “chukot” are forever)

Lev 26:4  then I shall give you rain in its season, and the land shall yield its crops, and the trees of the field yield their fruit.
Lev 26:5  ‘And your threshing shall last till the time of the grape harvest, and the grape harvest shall last till the time of sowing. And you shall eat your bread until you have enough, and shall dwell in your land safely.
Lev 26:6  ‘And I shall give peace in the land, and you shall lie down and no one make you afraid. And I shall clear the land of evil beasts,(chayah rahah) and not let the sword go through your land.
Lev 26:7  ‘And you shall pursue your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you.
Lev 26:8  ‘And five of you shall pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you pursue ten thousand. And your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.
Lev 26:9  ‘And I shall turn to you and make you bear fruit, and shall increase you, and shall establish My covenant with you.
Lev 26:10  ‘And you shall eat the old supply, and clear out the old because of the new.
Lev 26:11  ‘And I shall set My Dwelling Place in your midst, and My being shall not reject you.
Lev 26:12  ‘And I shall walk in your midst, and shall be your Elohim, and you shall be My people.
Lev 26:13  ‘I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from being their slaves. And I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk upright.
Lev 26:14  ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not do all these commands,
Lev 26:15  and if you reject My laws,(be chukatai) or if your being loathes My right-rulings, so that you do not do all My commands, but break My covenant, (note YHVH is addressing His people and history is the “tochacha” the proof)
Lev 26:16  I also do this to you: And I shall appoint sudden alarm over you, wasting disease and inflammation, destroying the eyes, and consuming the life. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
Lev 26:17  ‘And I shall set My face against you, and you shall be smitten before your enemies. And those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you.
Lev 26:18  ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I shall punish you seven times more for your sins.
Lev 26:19  ‘And I shall break the pride of your power, and shall make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze.
Lev 26:20  ‘And your strength shall be spent in vain and your land not yield its crops, nor the trees of the land yield their fruit.
Lev 26:21  ‘And if you walk contrary to Me, and refuse to obey Me, I shall bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins,
Lev 26:22  and send wild beasts among you, which shall bereave you of your children. And I shall cut off your livestock, and make you few in number, and your highways shall be deserted.
Lev 26:23  ‘And if you are not instructed by Me by these, but walk contrary to Me,
Lev 26:24  then I also shall walk contrary to you, and I Myself shall smite you seven times for your sins.
Lev 26:25  ‘And I shall bring against you a sword executing the vengeance of My covenant, and you shall gather together in your cities, and I shall send pestilence among you, and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy.
Lev 26:26  ‘When I have cut off your supply of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall bring back to you your bread by weight, and you shall eat and not be satisfied.
Lev 26:27  ‘And if in spite of this, you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me,
Lev 26:28  then I shall walk contrary to you in wrath. And I Myself shall punish you seven times for your sins.
Lev 26:29  ‘And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and eat the flesh of your daughters.
Lev 26:30  ‘And I shall destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-pillars, and put your carcasses on the carcasses of your idols. And My being shall loathe you.
Lev 26:31  ‘And I shall turn your cities into ruins and lay your set-apart places waste, and not smell your sweet fragrances.
Lev 26:32  ‘And I shall lay the land waste, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.
Lev 26:33  ‘And I shall scatter you among the gentiles and draw out a sword after you. And your land shall be desert and your cities ruins,
