A Clean House (Numbers 5:1–10)

Numbers Exposition

The presence of God must never be taken for granted. It is always a precious privilege granted by the mercy and the grace of God. This is the reasoning behind the cleanliness laws recorded in the text before us. Everything about God’s people—thoughts, attitudes, and actions—were to be informed by the reality of God dwelling among them. The presence of God would literally impact them from the outside in.

This text brings to a close the tragic account of Israel’s sin of unbelief as they stood on the threshold of God’s Promised Land. Just when we think that things could not get any worse, their belief becomes blatantly exponential—seemingly boundless. In this account we learn that not only will Israel not believe God when he promises blessings; neither will they believe him when he promises them judgement. It is a text from which we do well to learn.
