1 And the Lord said to Moses,

2 Say to the children of Israel that they are to give you rods, one for every family, for every chief, the head of his father's house, making twelve rods; let every man's name be placed on his rod.

3 And let Aaron's name be placed on the rod of Levi: for there is to be one rod for the head of every family.

4 And let them be stored up in the Tent of meeting, in front of the ark of witness where I come to you.

5 And the rod of that man who is marked out by me for myself will have buds on it; so I will put a stop to the outcries which the children of Israel make to me against you.

6 So Moses gave these orders to the children of Israel, and all their chiefs gave him rods, one for the head of every family, making twelve rods: and Aaron's rod was among them.

7 And Moses put the rods before the Lord in the Tent of witness.

8 Now on the day after, Moses went into the Tent of witness; and he saw that Aaron's rod, the rod of the house of Levi, had put out buds, and was covered with buds and flowers and fruit.

9 Then Moses took out all the rods from before the Lord, and gave them back to the children of Israel: and they saw them, and every man took his rod.

10 And the Lord said to Moses, Put Aaron's rod back in front of the ark of witness, to be kept for a sign against this false-hearted people, so that you may Put a stop to their outcries against me, and death may not overtake them.

11 This Moses did: as the Lord gave orders, so he did.

12 And the children of Israel said to Moses, Truly, destruction has come on us; an evil fate has overtaken us all.

13 Death will overtake everyone who comes near, who comes near the House of the Lord: are we all to come to destruction?

Explanation of Numbers 17      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-6. Revelation is made, that the power of truth is manifested according to the good from which it proceeds; that the quality of celestial love is manifested in celestial truth, and that of spiritual love in spiritual truth; that all truths are derived from Divine Good; that truth conjoined with good is powerful in good works; and that he who is in this state is no longer in temptation.

Verses 7-9. Again: all truths are acknowledged to be from the Lord through the celestial heavens; and hence when man enters into interior states through the reception of good, his truths are conjoined with good, and particularly is celestial good conjoined with its truth, thereby producing the fructification of good and truth, in successive degrees, in all the heavens; and hence it is made manifest that every one has truths in their power, according to his good from the Lord.

Verses 10-13. And revelation is therefore made that celestial truth from celestial good is inmost truth, in which is all power to govern lower truths; and the spiritual man thence confesses that, from himself he is without good and without truth; and that he who, from himself, presumes to approach the Lord in worship, must inevitably suffer spiritual death.
