Numbers 5:1-4

Num 5:1 Yahveh spoke to Moses, and this is what he said,
Num 5:2 “Command the sons of Israel that they put out of the camp everyone who is leprous or has a discharge and everyone who is unclean through contact with the dead.
Num 5:3 You will put out both male and female, putting them outside the camp, so that they may not defile their camp, in the midst of which I am living.”
Num 5:4 And the sons of Israel did so, and put them outside the camp; as Yahveh said to Moses, so the sons of Israel did.

everything that defiles

The shadow of Christ continues to show in this chapter, as three things that keep us from experiencing the presence of God are highlighted. This first example is defilement.

Jesus healed the woman with the discharge, clensed the lepers, and raised the dead. He is God’s ultimate answer for everything that defiles.

LORD, we acknowledge your holiness, and know that we do not deserve to stay in your presence. But we also thank you for your grace — the blood of Christ that cleanses us from everything that defiles.
