Vows, Vengeance on Midianites, and Victory in the Camp

Numbers 30-31:54 (New King James Version)

The Law Concerning Vows
Very interesting.  Be careful what you vow.   I googled definition of vow, and it is a solemn act or promise to do or be something.  "I promise to quit drinking today." "I promise to witness to someone every day."

The law concerning vows during this Bible reading was concerning households, i.e. whether a man vowed, or whether a woman vowed.

Vengeance on the Midianites
They killed the five kings of Midian, and Balaam.

Return from the War
So, they returned with the women and children and booty from the war.  Moses was angry that they had brought into camp the very people that had caused the plague because of their harlotry and he told them to kill all the women that had known a man, and all the male children.

They also purified by fire and water all booty.

Division of the Plunder
Divided up according to the Lord, the priests, and the twelve tribes of Israel.

Yesterday was a war of souls.  God truly is so awesome.
