Sibling Envy (Numbers 12:1–16)

Numbers 12 continues what we might call a negative narrative. Having examined the ugliness of grumbling and ingratitude in chapter 11, we now enter another sad example of God’s people behaving badly. Here we have the record of what Allen has described as “a classic example of sibling rivalry—but not among children. These are adults who adopt the tactics of children in the schoolyard.” The big sin recorded here for posterity is that of envy.
