100822 Numbers 27

I have read Leviticus and most of numbers since I wrote last, but hope to get back into the swing of things.
Numbers 27
27.1  daughters of Zelophehad...  Those were some kind of plucky women.
27.14  because your rebelled aganist my word...  Seems to be an antinym for believe.  I am thinking about rebellion being the opposite of believe.
27.14  failing to uphold me as holy at the waters before their eyes...  This expression is repeated from 20.12, except that passage puts the words with did not believe instead of rebelled.  I had always associated the striking the rock as disobedience, so this wording is thought provoking.  In chapter 20 Aaron is also tied to the sin.
