Numbers 2:27-28

Num 2:27 And those to camp next to him will be the tribe of Asher, the general from the people of Asher being Pagiel the son of Ochran,
Num 2:28 his company as mustered being 41,500.


General Pagiel’s father was named Ochran, which means “trouble,” in the sense of disturbance. This sounds like a good biker name. It is the kind of name that suggests that you do not want to trouble this person, or you can expect trouble back. This reflects the kind of confidence the exodus generation had.

LORD, give us the confidence in you that those who bless us will be blessed by you, and those who disturb us will be judged by you.
