Numbers Chapter 17 Summary: Chapter Summaries

Numbers chapter 17 summary is brief because it is a short chapter. It was based on the aftermath of the rebellion in the previous chapter (read that chapter and summary, please)!

This chapter began after the mayhem with Korah and his followers and their rebellion. The LORD God implemented a way to settle this sort of rebellion forever with the children of Israel. God instructed Moses to have each tribe bring in a rod with the head of the tribe’s name on it.

They then were commanded to lay their rod in the tabernacle where God would meet with Moses. Whomever’s rod budded and blossomed, would be the tribe the Lord chose to lead the children of Israel.

Numbers Chapter 17 Summary

This procedure would or should at least cease the murmurs against Moses and Aaron. Everyone did as Moses commanded and the following day, they all witnessed that the tribe of Levi (Aaron’s rod) budded and blossomed with almonds on it.

The congregation was shown this and God had Moses keep Aaron’s rod in the tabernacle as a token for future reference for rebels. Also, it would quiet any murmurings preventing rebellion within Israel.

The children of Israel felt inundated with dying, by all of God’s commands, they asked, “Will we be consumed with dying?” However, God is only establishing His righteousness towards them!

This is the summary of Numbers chapter 17, glory to Yah!
