Numbers 13-15

13.8  you shall not consent...
13.8  nor shall you spare him or conceal him...  It was not enough to just not do the sin...
14.21  you may give it to the alien... The distinction between the Israelites and gentiles here is interesting.
15.7  you shall not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor... The poor that belong to you.  It got me to thinking about who my poor are.
15.10  your heart should not be grieved when you give to him...  An interesting command about what kind of attitude.  It seems to point out the importance of the Spirit's work.  It's not enough to grudgingly make the motions of doing the letter of the law.
15.11  you shall open your hand wide...
