Conclusion of the Historical Resume
10:6 “During those days the Israelites traveled from Beeroth Bene-Yaaqan9 to Moserah.10 There Aaron died and was buried, and his son Eleazar became priest in his place. 10:7 From there they traveled to Gudgodah,11 and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah,12 a place of flowing streams. 10:8 At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi13 to carry the ark of the Lord’s covenant, to stand before the Lord to serve him, and to formulate blessings14 in his name, as they do to this very day. 10:9 Therefore Levi has no allotment or inheritance15 among his brothers;16 the Lord is his inheritance just as the Lord your God told him. 10:10 As for me, I stayed at the mountain as I did the first time, forty days and nights. The Lord listened to me that time as well and decided not to destroy you. 10:11 Then he17 said to me, “Get up, set out leading18 the people so they may go and possess19 the land I promised to give to their ancestors.”20
