2. Geneva 1560 Bible Teaching Notes:
Numbers ch 8:
Link to e-version of Geneva Bible 1560/1599:
|8:1 thru 8:4And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Speake vnto Aaron, and say vnto him, When thou lightest the lampes, the seuen lampes shall giue light towarde the forefront of the Candlesticke. And Aaron did so, lighting the lampes thereof towarde ye forefront of the Candlesticke, as the Lord had commanded Moses. And this was the worke of the Candlesticke, euen of golde beaten out with the hammer, both the shafte, and the flowres thereof was beaten out with the hammer: according to the paterne, which the Lord had shewed Moses, so made he the Candlesticke.|
In Exodus ch 25-31 we reviewed GOD’s instructions concerning the construction of the Tabernacle of the LORD. The links below are to the Live Bible Studies for those classes.
|8:5 thru 8:14And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Take the Leuites from among the children of Israel, and purifie them. And thus shalt thou doe vnto them, when thou purifiest them, Sprinckle water of purification vpon them, and let them shaue all their flesh, and wash their clothes: so they shalbe cleane. Then they shall take a yong bullocke with his meate offring of fine floure, mingled with oyle, and another yong bullocke shalt thou take for a sinne offring. Then thou shalt bring the Leuites before the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and asseble all the Congregation of the children of Israel. Thou shalt bring the Leuites also before the Lord, and the children of Israel shall put their handes vpon the Leuites. And Aaron shall offer the Leuites before the Lord, as a shake offring of ye childre of Israel, that they may execute the seruice of the Lord. And the Leuites shall put their handes vpon the heades of the bullockes, and make thou the one a sinne offring, and the other a burnt offring vnto the Lord, that thou mayest make an atonement for the Leuites. And thou shalt set the Leuites before Aaron and before his sonnes, and offer the as a shake offring to the Lord. Thus thou shalt separate the Leuites from among the children of Israel, and the Leuites shall be mine.|
The links to the videos below are to the live Bible Studies of the Consecration of Aaron and His four Sons.
I believe the reason why we read about the consecration of Aaron and His two sons now in the Books of Numbers ch 8 is because a re-consecration was necessary after the death of the two sons of Aaron Nadab and Abihu.
The link to Live Bible Study for Leviticus ch 10 is below.
|8:15 thru 8:19And afterwarde shall the Leuites goe in, to serue in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and thou shalt purifie them and offer them, as a shake offering. For they are freely giuen vnto me from among the children of Israel, for such as open any wombe: for all the first borne of the children of Israel haue I taken them vnto me. For all the first borne of the children of Israel are mine, both of man and of beast: since the day that I smote euery first borne in the land of Egypt, I sanctified them for my selfe. And I haue taken the Leuites for all the first borne of the children of Israel, And haue giuen the Leuites as a gift vnto Aaron, and to his sonnes from among the children of Israel, to do the seruice of the children of Israel in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, and to make an atonement for the children of Israel, that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come neere vnto the Sanctuarie.|
|8:20 thru 8:22Then Moses and Aaron and all the Cogregation of the children of Israel did with the Leuites, according vnto all that the Lord had commanded Moses concerning the Leuites: so did the children of Israel vnto them. So the Leuites were purified, and washed their clothes, and Aaron offred them as a shake offring before the Lord, and Aaron made an atonement for them, to purifie them. And after that, went the Leuites in to doe their seruice in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, before Aaron and before his sonnes: as the Lord had commanded Moses concerning the Leuites, so they did vnto them.|
In the link to the Live Bible Study below we review what jobs the Levitical Priest were assigned by HaShem, to be in service to the Kohenim or Priest of The LORD’s Tabernacle.https://www.youtube.com/embed/iFgINK9nnqo
|8:23 thru 8:24And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, This also belongeth to the Leuites: from fiue and twentie yeere olde and vpwarde, they shall goe in, to execute their office in the seruice of the Tabernacle of the Congregation.|
I want to highlight this Bible Verse: As we spoke about before; GOD has directed me to read

I purchased my hard copy from Amazon . I am not paid to endorse and I am not affiliated.
Moving on, the Scrolls Titled are
- The Rules The Community Rule – (IQS, 4Q255-64, 4Q280, 286-7, 4Q502, 5QII, 13)
- Community Rule manuscripts from Cave 4 Entry into the Covenant – (4Q275)
- Four Classes of the Community – (4Q279)
- The Damascus Document – (CD, 4Q265-73, 5Q12, 6Q15)
- Damascus Document manuscripts from Cave 4 The Messianic Rule – (1QSa=1Q28a)
- The War Scroll – (IQM, 1Q33, 4Q491-7, 4Q471)
- The War Scroll from Cave 4 – (4Q491, 493)
- The Book of War – (4Q285, 11Q14)

- MMT (Miqsatt Ma‘ase Ha- Torah) – Some Observances of the Law – (4Q394-9)
All confirm verse Number ch 8 : 23-24 or I should say the verses Number ch 8: 23-24 confirm the Dead Sea Scrolls listed above. Why is this important?
Deuteronomy 17:6. 1599 Geneva Bible
6 At the mouth [a]of two or three witnesses shall he that is worthy of death, die: but at the mouth of one witness, he shall not die.
Several have been incorrectly taught that the Dead Sea Scrolls or the Lost Books of the Bible or The Removed Books of the Bible, are not valuable for Christians to read or study. Several have been incorrectly mis-lead that reading other books for research and study of GOD’s Holy Bible is some how blaspheme. I am not in agreement with this, in my opinion gross misrepresentation of the Dead Sea Scrolls or the Lost / Removed Books of the Bible or any other Historical or Government, Or Biblical Text. I believe we as GOD’s Children should always confirm and seek wisdom from GOD and GOD alone. I also believe that GOD’s can use any scribe or historian Jew or Greek, Believer or non- believe to document facts of the Bible.
This being said, I must stress the importance for always Praying to GOD’s and Asking GOD’s Almighty for direction in studies of GOD’s Holy Scriptures. GOD will never lie to us. AMEN!!!!
SO what do the Dead Sea Scrolls listed above state? I am glad you asked and will we review a small portion during the Live Bible Study which I will link to this BLOG after the post.
|8:25 thru 8:26And after the age of fiftie yeere, they shall cease from executing the office, and shall serue no more: But they shall minister with their brethre in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, to keepe things committed to their charge, but they shall doe no seruice: thus shalt thou doe vnto the Leuites touching their charges.|
The Spiritual teaching of the TORAH is be only during Live Bible Study. The TORAH verse below are for those who who like to read or study the TORAH during their own time. For the shake of avoiding repeating the verses, I will only go over the verse GOD HaShem lighted to us for this Bible Study.
Let us begin!!!!!
3. Torah Spiritual Teaching Notes:
Numbers ch 8:
Link to e-versoin of Torah:
|The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:Speak to Aaron and say to him: “When you light the lamps, the seven lamps shall cast their light toward the face of the menorah.” Aaron did so; he lit the lamps toward the face of the menorah, as the Lord had commanded Moses. This was the form of the menorah: hammered work of gold, from its base to its flower it was hammered work; according to the form that the Lord had shown Moses, so did he construct the menorah. The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Take the Levites from among the children of Israel and cleanse them. This is what you shall do to them so as to cleanse them: sprinkle them with cleansing water and pass a razor over all their flesh; then they shall wash their garments and cleanse themselves. Then they shall take a young bull with its meal offering of fine flour mingled with oil. And you shall take a second young bull as a sin offering. You shall bring the Levites in front of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall gather the entire congregation of the children of Israel. You shall bring the Levites before the Lord, and the children of Israel shall lay their hands upon the Levites. Then Aaron shall lift up the Levites as a waving before the Lord on behalf of the children of Israel, that they may serve in the Lord’s service. The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and make one as a sin offering and one as a burnt offering to the Lord, to atone for the Levites. You shall present the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and lift them as a waving before the Lord. Thus shall you set apart the Levites from the midst of the children of Israel, and the Levites shall become Mine. Following this, the Levites shall come to serve in the Tent of Meeting. You shall cleanse them and lift them as a waving. For they are wholly given over to Me from among the children of Israel; instead of those that open the womb all the firstborn of Israel I have taken them for Myself. For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are Mine whether man or beast since the day I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt; I have sanctified them for Myself. And I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn of the children of Israel. I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the children of Israel, to perform the service for the children of Israel in the Tent of Meeting and to atone on behalf of the children of Israel, so that the children of Israel will not be inflicted with plague when they approach the Sanctuary. So Moses, Aaron, and the entire congregation of Israel did [this] to the Levites; the children of Israel did [in accordance with] all that the Lord had instructed Moses regarding the Levites. The Levites cleansed themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron lifted them as a waving before the Lord, and Aaron atoned for them to cleanse them. After that, the Levites came to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting before Aaron and before his sons; they did to them just as the Lord had commanded Moses regarding the Levites. The Lord spoke to Moses saying: This is [the rule] concerning the Levites: From the age of twenty five years and upwards, he shall enter the service to work in the Tent of Meeting. From the age of fifty he shall retire from the work legion, and do no more work. He shall minister with his brethren in the Tent of Meeting to keep the charge, but he shall not perform the service; thus shall you do for the Levites regarding their charge.|
