Date ??? Numbers 32-36

Numbers 32
32.7  Why will you discourage the people?  It is interesting to see the whole issue couched in terms of discouraging others from obeying God instead of not doing their fair share.
32.12  wholly followed Me...  Caleb is a man I want to be like.
32.23  be sure your sin will find you out.  I find this to  be a intriguing expression especially in the immediate context of sinning against the Lord.  I had always thought of this in terms of natural consequences, but am wondering about that now.
32.32  before the Lord...  here in the context of going to battle.  This expression is made more interesting here in the context of things that will be devoted to destruction, but mainly is a reminder that everything we do is "before the Lord."

35.22  pushed him suddenly without enmity...

35.33  pollute the land...  Innocent blood is the kind of pollution that everyone wants to stop.
35.33  no atonement can be made for the land...  What a curious thought I had only thought of atonement in the terms of people's sin.
Numbers 36
36.6  Let them marry whom they think be best...  An interesting thought when thinking about arranged marriages and telling daughters who they can't marry (conditions to these did seem to apply.
