100824 Num 29

Numbers 29
29.1 first day of seventh month ... a holy convocation...
29.7  On the tenth day ... a holy convocation...
29.12  On the fifteenth day ... a holy convocation...
29.13  The seven day feat starts with a sacrifice of 13 bulls and works its way down to seven.  If seven represents perfection, I wonder what 13 means.
Numbers 30  Women and vows
30.8  It seems odd in our "more liberated" western culture for the husband to have that kind of say over his wife.  
30.9  It is interesting that widows and divorsed seemed to be treated differently.
Numbers 31
31.25  The "tithe" that the Lord required is curious in light of the 10% that Abraham gave to Melchizadek (sp) in Genesis.
31.50  Why was it neccessary for them to make atonement for themselves?
31.54  I wonder if this is where memorial offerings got their start?  :o)
