Numbers 5-6

Numbers 5-6

Chapter 5: Sinners

Everyone who is a Leper is considered unclean and must be “put out” of the camp. This includes male and female, so that they might not “defile” the camp or the rest of the congregation of Israel. If a man or woman is to sin, they must confess of their sins and make a restitution of that sin.

If a woman was unfaithful to her husband or had been presumed to have been unfaithful to her husband, she was to be brought before a priest. The priest will charge her by oath and by that he can decide whether this was true, through the Jealous Offering, which is like a trial.

Chapter 6: No Wine of Strong Drink

The Law of the Nazarite is set forth. Those who want to live the law, must separate themselves unto the Lord. They are not to drink wine or strong drink. Those who live this law and take the vow to live the law, by separating themselves unto the Lord must shave their heads if they become defiled.
