Trapp will be most valuable to men of discernment (Spurgeon). I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say. (1Cor. 10:15)



Communion and conformity

Numbers 28 Ver. 11. And in the beginning of your months.

Thus they had their daily, weekly, monthly, yearly addresses unto God, that

they might ever be in communion with him, and conformity unto him,

by this continual intercourse.

Lots of Popcorn

Numbers 6, Ver. 3. He shall separate himself from wine.

Lest he should drink and forget the law, {#Pr 31:5} which he was to study diligently: but

loaden bellies make leaden wits:

intemperance takes away the heart, {#Ho 4:11} overchargeth it. {#Lu 21:34}

She hath done the act of a beast

If the spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife who has defiled herself, or if the spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife, though she has not defiled herself, then the man shall bring his wife to the priest and bring the offering required of her, a tenth of an ephah of barley flour. Numbers 5:15

Barley, not wheat. She hath done the act of a beast, and her oblation is the meat of a beast.

The work of the ministry

Numbers 4:3 …to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

The work of the ministry is not an idle man’s occupation, but a labouring even to lassitude; compared therefore to harvest work, and to that of cleaving wood, digging in mine pits, rowing with oars, &c.

All the comfort is, that God that helped the Levites to bear the ark of the covenant, {#1Ch 15:26} will not be wanting to his weak, but willing servants, “that labour in the word and doctrine.” {#1Ti 5:17}
