ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE LESSON
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE STORY
It's time for another wonderful story at your Daily Bread. We're gonna
start with a Daily Bread Crumb this time and it's gonna be a little bit of
background information on the region called the land of Midian. First of
all, who was Midian? Let's go back to when Sarah died.
took another wife after Sarah died named Keturah and their 4th of 5 sons was named
Midian. He established of the land
who Joseph's brothers sold him to, when they pulled him up out of the pit were
and they in turn, sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for 20 pieces of silver, who in turn took Joseph into Egypt and
sold him to Potiphar.
the land that Moses fled to from Pharaoh when Moses killed the Egyptian who struck a Hebrew. Jethro was the priest
and Zipporah, the woman that Moses first
married was Jethro's daughter, a
conspired with Moab (Balak) to try and get Balaam to curse Israel because
the were afraid that Israel would
conquer them when they saw how Israel conquered the Amorites.
Some of Israel went astray
with the women of Moab and worshipped their false gods at a place called Peor. (Remember that Moab
are comrades.) One of the children of Israel brought a Midianite
woman into the camp so all could see. Phinehas followed them into a
tent and pierced them through together with a javelin. The devotion of Phinehas eased God's anger toward Israel
and stopped the plague that He started among them because of their whoredoms.
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE LINEAGE
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE EVENTS
As you recall, after the plague,
the Lord told Moses to destroy Midian because of their trickery and their
misleading of His people. The Lord told Moses that the time had come to
avenge His people of Midian and after that, Moses would be gathered to his
Moses told the people, Get your
weapons, we're going against the Midianites to avenge the Lord. One
thousand from each tribe will be sent to the war. So each tribe sent 1,000
soldiers and there were 12,000 in all who were armed for battle. Moses sent
them with Phinehas (the son of Eleazar the priest) with the holy instruments
and the trumpets in his hand.
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE RESEARCH
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE DETAILS
They fought against the Midianites
and they killed all the males. They killed the 5 kings of Midian and also
Balaam was killed with the sword. The children of Israel took all the women
of Midian and their children captives and took all their cattle and flocks
and goods. (Oh brother, can you smell trouble?)
They burned all their
cities and castles, then they took all their loot and captives and animals
and brought them to Moses and Eleazar and the congregation at the camp at
the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
When Moses and Eleazar and the
princes of the congregation went to meet them outside the camp, Moses was
furious with the returning officers. He said to them, You saved all the
women alive? They're the reason the children of Israel trespassed against
God at Peor and caused the plague!
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE PUNISHMENT
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE CONCERNS
Now kill every male child and every
woman who has known a man, but all the women children who are pure, keep
them alive. Then stay outside the camp for 7 days. Whoever has killed
anyone and whoever has touched any dead, purify yourselves and your captives
on the 3rd day and on the 7th day. Purify your clothes and all that's made
of skins and anything made of goats' hair or wood.
Eleazar told the soldiers, This is
the law the Lord commanded Moses. Only the gold, silver, brass, iron, tin
and lead, everything that can withstand the fire, you will put it through
the fire and it will be clean.
It will be purified with the water of
separation and all that can't withstand the fire you will make go through
the water. (You can read about the water of separation and the laws of
purification that are mentioned here in
Numbers, Chapter 19. You will wash
your clothes on the 7th day and you will be clean and afterward, you may
come into the camp.
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE COUNT
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE DISCUSSION
The Lord told Moses to count the
captives that were taken, both people and animals, with Eleazar and the
chief fathers of the congregation, and divide them into two parts, half for
the soldiers and half for the congregation, and to collect a gift for the
Lord from the soldiers and from the children of Israel for the victory.
From the soldiers, 1 for each 500
souls, cattle, mules, and sheep was given to Eleazar for an heave offering
of the Lord. From the children of Israel's half, 1 for each 50 persons,
cattle, mules, flocks and other animals were given to the Levites which
maintained the tabernacle of the Lord.
The loot brought back from Midian included:
This is how it was divided and the tribute
that was levied.
(taken from the soldier's half)
(taken from Israel's half)
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH BIBLE SUMMARY
ABRAHAM AND KETURAH IN THE BIBLE CONCLUSION
The officers of the army of Israel came to Moses
and said, We've counted all the men who went to war with us and we haven't
lost a single one. So we brought an offering to the Lord, what each man has
taken of gold, chains, bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces to make an
atonement for our souls before the Lord.
Each man had taken spoil for
himself and it all together weighed 16,750 shekels. That's approximately
733 pounds! Moses and Eleazar took the gold and brought it into the
tabernacle of the congregation for a memorial for the children of Israel
before the Lord.
Pretty amazing that out of 12,000
soldiers, not one was lost in a battle where so much was conquered, but our
God is amazing and there is nothing He can't do. Be sure to come
back again and find out what happens next when the children of Reuben and
Gad have an unusual request for Moses. You'll find it here at Daily Bread!
