  1. Shalom! thanks for the highlight on versions of the Bible. Has Nehemia finished the Hebrew Matthew? we are interested in copies

  2. Would Moses asking Hoban the Midianite to in essence lead them be a portion of the reason Yehovah ordered Moses to lead the destruction of the Midisnites? He said, “…You know where we should camp in the desert, and you can be our eyes…” , It appears for a moment Moses is Relying on Hoban rather than fully relying on Yah to lead them .

  3. Could Numbers 10:29 through 30 to have been part of the reason that Yehovah order Moses to be the one to Order the destruction of the Midianites?

  4. When I was young, in the sixties, no matter what the stores’ return policy was if her father did not like the purchase it was returnable without question. Many of Texas laws were based on scripture.

  5. With the slaughter of the Midianites, you mentioned that Tzipora and her kids are Midianites. We don’t know Tzipora’s fate from the Torah. Are there any midrashim them resonate with you?

  6. Shalom Nehemia,
    Very interesting midrash as usual and stimulating. Land of Midianites are not of Israel, explains why Moshe is approved by YHWH to marry Tzipora.
    And names of places repeated in other areas are in dedication purposes; really makes sense..
    Todah! brachot.
