July 8 / Tammuz 16

Numbers 27:6-23

I thought that Numbers 27:12-16 was quite touching. Difficult to image Moses having gone through so much and yet not speaking a word about not being able to enter the land of Israel.

Joshua 11

Joshua 11:15 – the idea that Joshua is the rightful successor of Moses being reinforced yet again, after we see Joshua part the waters in parallel to Moses’ parting of the Red Sea. It makes me wonder if there were challenges to Joshua’s authority.

Psalms 8

For me, Psalms 8:5-6 calls to mind Job 7:17, very nearly as a foil – the former being spoken in awe, the latter in agony.
