What is the definition of humble?
What is the definition of meek?
During the Live Bible Study scheduled for Friday, 10, December, 2021/5782 we will review both definitions as stated by The New Bible Dictionary published 1975, pg 547 and The NIV Compact Dictionary of The Bible. I like the definitions in these Bibles dictionaries and felt that they gave a little more detail in comparison to others.

What was the reason for the strong dislike of the Cushite Woman?
What the hatred really about the Cushite Woman or something else?
(retrieved from: The New Bible Dictionary published 1975, pg 866; Table of Nations)
This chart of Nations will be important later especially, when we get into the many wars that will follow.
Please remember, every name has a Spiritual Meaning, Earthly meaning, and is best looked up in dictionaries, lexicons, and local legends for research purposes. I suggest also Praying for GOD Guidance before researching.
2. Geneva 1560 Bible Teaching Notes:
Numbers ch 12:
Link to e-version of Geneva Bible 1560/1599:
|12:1||Afterward Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses, because of the woman of Ethiopia whome hee had maried (for hee had married a woman of Ethiopia)|
What might have the New Wife of Moses looked like?
(retrieved from: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=ethiopia+women+native&t=brave&iar=images&iax=images&ia=images&iai=https%3A%2F%2Fi.pinimg.com%2Foriginals%2F9b%2Feb%2Fe4%2F9bebe46e10b97c79dad86e2a29e0cf8a.jpg, date 3 December, 2021/5782)
Do I believe looks matter?
No, but I often wonder how living in Bible times must have been like. I often Pray to GOD, to show me. I seeing people from Nations I’ll probably never visit. I love hearing how they grew up. I love witnessing the vastness of GOD in HIS Creations. I think GOD is beautiful and HIS people are too.
I love reading and researching the history of Nations written about in the Bible.
Because, often times what we a force feed on t.v. and news is not the truth. Sometimes even books we read from certain publishers might have a foggy lens. Those with money and corruption on the mind and in the heart; can never be trusted. That being said, is why I love to read books, maybe watch documentaries, hear from first hand accounts of Nations; but always confirm with GOD and HIS Word.
In my opinion, studying the Bible and researching History is one of GOD’s Commands.
Geneva Bible of 1587
The glorie of God is to conceale a thing secret: but the Kings honour is to search out a thing.
(retrieved from: https://biblehub.com/parallel/proverbs/25-2.htm, date 3 Dec, 2021/5782)
How this researching go with this Bible verse?
|12:1||Afterward Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses, because of the woman of Ethiopia whome hee had maried (for hee had married a woman of Ethiopia)|
Well, those who have foggy lenses, or perverted lenses, or corrupt lenses, or anything else un-GODly; would say the reason the following verse happen was due to racism.
But, if one were to research and think actively and with GOD; they would discern that racism was not the cause of this unfortunate betrayal that is about to take place amongst sister and brothers, which impacts a Nation.
A Biblical Foundational, Spiritual Educated (by the HOLY SPIRIT), and Biblical Discerning Child of GOD, would be able to rebuke any lies spoken by or from any platform.
Where do we receive the best Truthful GODly Education?
Well, I am glad you asked?
Example in the Bible how JESUS is Our Educator, not the world system or any earthly institution; but JESUS in SPIRIT.
Paul Preaches the Gospel
10For nowe preach I mans doctrine, or Gods? or go I about to please men? for if I should yet please men, I were not the seruant of Christ.
11Now I certifie you, brethren, that ye Gospel which was preached of me, was not after man. 12For neither receiued I it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the reuelation of Iesus Christ.
13For ye haue heard of my conuersation in time past, in the Iewish religion, how that I persecuted the Church of God extremely, and wasted it, 14And profited in the Iewish religion aboue many of my companions of mine owne nation, and was much more zealous of the traditions of my fathers. 15But when it pleased God (which had separated me from my mothers wombe, and called me by his grace) 16To reueile his Sonne in me, that I should preach him among the Gentiles, immediatly I communicated not with flesh and blood: 17Neither came I againe to Hierusalem to them which were Apostles before me, but I went into Arabia, and turned againe vnto Damascus.
18Then after …………
(three years Saul now Paul was taught by JESUS in the Spiritual Class Room)
I came againe to Hierusalem to visite Peter, and abode with him fifteene dayes. 19And none other of the Apostles sawe I, saue Iames the Lords brother. 20Nowe the things which I write vnto you, beholde, I witnes before God, that I lie not. 21After that, I went into the coastes of Syria and Cilicia: 22For I was vnknowen by face vnto the Churches of Iudea, which were in Christ. 23But they had heard onely some say, Hee which persecuted vs in time past, nowe preacheth the faith which before he destroyed. 24And they glorified God for me.
This is why no matter what sources I read, hear, or see; I always confirm with GOD.
Amen… and AMEN.
|12:2 thru 12:4And they saide, What? hath the Lord spoken but onely by Moses? hath he not spoken also by vs? and the Lord heard this. (But Moses was a verie meeke man, aboue all the men that were vpon the earth) And by and by the Lord sayd vnto Moses, and vnto Aaron, and vnto Miriam, come out yee three vnto the Tabernacle of the Congregation: and they three came forth.|
I believe GOD called a Public meeting to educate the Nation of Israel and to provide an educational experience to those who might try the same the tempting of GOD.
|12:5 thru 12:12Then the Lord came downe in the pillar of the cloude, and stoode in the doore of the Tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forth. And hee saide, Heare nowe my wordes, If there be a Prophet of the Lord among you, I will be knowen to him by a vision, and will speake vnto him by dreame. My seruant Moses is not so, who is faithfull in all mine house. Vnto him will I speake mouth to mouth, and by vision, and not in darke wordes, but hee shall see the similitude of the Lord. Wherefore then were ye not afraid to speake against my seruant, euen against Moses? Thus the Lord was very angrie with them, and departed. Also the cloude departed from the Tabernacle: and beholde, Miriam was leprous like snowe: and Aaron looked vpon Miriam, and beholde, she was leprous. Then Aaron saide vnto Moses, Alas, my Lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sinne vpon vs, which we haue foolishly committed and wherein we haue sinned. Let her not, I pray thee, be as one dead, of whome the flesh is halfe consumed, when he commeth out of his mothers wombe.|
Smith’s Bible Dictionary defines leprosy as:
Leper, Leprosy The predominant and characteristic form of leprosy in the Old Testament is a white variety, covering either the entire body or a large tract of its surface, which has obtained the name of Lepra mosaica . Such were the cases of Moses, Miriam, Naaman and Gehazi. (Exodus 4:6; Numbers 12:10; 2 Kings 5:1,27) comp. Levi 13:13 But, remarkably enough, in the Mosaic ritual diagnosis of the disease, (Leviticus 13:1; Leviticus 14:1) … this kind, when overspreading the whole surface, appears to be regarded as “clean.” (Leviticus 13:12,13,16,17) The Egyptian bondage, with its studied degradations and privations, and especially the work of the kiln under an Egyptian sun, must have had a frightful tendency to generate this class of disorders. The sudden and total change of food, air, dwelling and mode of life, caused by the exodus, to this nation of newly-emancipated slaves, may possibly have had a further tendency to produce skin disorders, and severe repressive measures may have been required in the desert-moving camp to secure the public health or to allay the panic of infection. Hence it is possible that many, perhaps most, of this repertory of symptoms may have disappeared with the period of the exodus, and the snow-white form, which had pre-existed, may alone have ordinarily continued in a later age.
The principal morbid features are a rising or swelling, a scab or baldness, and a bright or white spot. (Leviticus 13:2) But especially a white swelling in the skin, with a change of the hair of the part from the natural black to white or yellow, ch. (Leviticus 13:3,4,10,20,25,30) or an appearance of a taint going “deeper than the skin,” or, again, “raw flesh” appearing in the swelling, ch. (Leviticus 13:10,14,15) was a critical sign of pollution. The tendency to spread seems especially to have been relied on. A spot most innocent in other respects, if it “spread much abroad,” was unclean; whereas, as before remarked, the man so wholly overspread with the evil that it could find no further range was on the contrary “clean.” ch. (Leviticus 13:12,13) These two opposite criteria seem to show that whilst the disease manifested activity, the Mosaic law imputed pollution to and imposed segregation on the suffered, but that the point at which it might be viewed as having run its course was the signal for his readmission to communion. It is clear that the leprosy of Levi 13,14 means any severe disease spreading on the surface of the body in the way described, and so shocking of aspect, or so generally suspected of infection, that public feeling called for separation. It is now undoubted that the “leprosy” of modern Syria, and which has a wide range in Spain, Greece and Norway, is the Elephantiasis graecorum . It is said to have been brought home by the crusaders into the various countries of western and northern Europe. It certainly was not the distinctive white leprosy, nor do any of the described symptoms in Levi 13 point to elephantiasis. “White as snow,” (2 Kings 5:27) would be a inapplicable to elephantiasis as to small-pox.
There remains a curious question as regards the leprosy of garments and houses. Some have though garments worn by leprous patients intended. This classing of garments and house-walls with the human epidermis, as leprous, has moved the mirth of some and the wonder of others. Yet modern science has established what goes far to vindicate the Mosaic classification as more philosophical than such cavils. It is now known that there are some skin diseases which originate in an acarus, and others which proceed from a fungus. In these we may probably find the solution of the paradox. The analogy between the insect which frets the human skin and that which frets the garment that covers it—between the fungous growth that lines the crevices of the epidermis and that which creeps in the interstices of masonry—is close enough for the purposes of a ceremonial law. It is manifest also that a disease in the human subject caused by an acarus or by a fungus would be certainly contagious, since the propagative cause could be transferred from person to person. (Geikie in his “Life of Christ” says: “Leprosy signifies smiting, because it was supposed to be a direct visitation of Heaven. It began with little specks on the eyelids and on the palms of the hands, and gradually spread over different parts of the body, bleaching the hair white wherever it showed itself, crusting the affected parts with shining scales, and causing swellings and sores. From the skin it slowly ate its way through the tissues, to the bones and joints, and even to the marrow, rotting the whole body piecemeal. The lungs, the organs of speech and hearing, and the eyes, were attacked in turn, till at last consumption or dropsy brought welcome death. The dread of infection kept men aloof from the sufferer; and the law proscribed him as above all men unclean. The disease was hereditary to the fourth generation.”
Leprosy in the United States.
—The Medical Record, February, 1881, states that from the statistics collected by the Dermatological Society it appears that there are between fifty and one hundred lepers in the United States at present. Is modern leprosy contagious?—Dr. H.S. Piffard of New York, in the Medical Record, February, 1881, decides that it is in a modified degree contagious. “A review of the evidence led to the conclusion that this disease was not contagious by ordinary contact; but it may be transmitted by the blood and secretions. A recent writer, Dr. Bross, a Jesuit missionary attached to the lazaretto at Trinidad, takes the ground that the disease in some way or other is transmissible. It is a well-established fact that when leprosy has once gained for itself a foothold in any locality, it is apt to remain there and spread. The case of the Sandwich Islands illustrates the danger. Forty years ago the disease did not exits there; now one-tenth of the inhabitants are lepers.” This is further confirmed by the fact stated by Dr. J. Hutchinson, F.R.S., that “We find that nearly everywhere the disease is most common on the seashore, and that, when it spreads inland, it generally occurs on the shores of lakes or along the course of large rivers.”
Leprosy as a type of sin.
—“Being the worst form of disease, leprosy was fixed upon by God to be the especial type of sin, and the injunctions regarding it had reference to its typical character.” It was (1) hereditary; (2) contagious; (3) ever tending to increase; (4) incurable except by the power of God; (5) a shame and disgrace; (6) rendering one alone in the world; (7) deforming, unclean; (8) “separating the soul from God, producing spiritual death; unfitting it forever for heaven and the company of they holy, and insuring its eternal banishment, as polluted and abominable.” (9) Another point is referred to by Thompson (in “The Land and the Book”): “Some, as they look on infancy, reject with horror the thought that sin exists within. But so might any one say who looked upon the beautiful babe in the arms of a leprous mother. But time brings forth the fearful malady. New-born babes of leprous parents are often as pretty and as healthy in appearance as any; but by and by its presence and workings become visible in some of the signs described in the thirteenth chapter of Leviticus.”—ED.)

|12:11 thru 12:16Then Aaron saide vnto Moses, Alas, my Lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sinne vpon vs, which we haue foolishly committed and wherein we haue sinned.Let her not, I pray thee, be as one dead, of whome the flesh is halfe consumed, when he commeth out of his mothers wombe. Then Moses cryed vnto the Lord, saying, O God, I beseech thee, heale her nowe. And the Lord said vnto Moses, If her father had spit in her face, shoulde she not haue bene ashamed seuen dayes? let her be shut out of the hoste seuen dayes, and after she shall bee receiued. So Miriam was shut out of the hoste seuen dayes, and the people remooued not, till Miriam was brought in againe.12:16n/a|
In researching why verse 16 is n/a I found this, I really like the Wycliffe version of the Bible version of these verses.
|12:5 -12:15the Lord cam doun in a piler of cloude, and he stood in the entryng of the tabernacle, and clepide Aaron and Marie. And whanne thei hadden go, he seide to hem, Here ye my wordis; if ony among you is a profete of the Lord, Y schal appere to hym in reuelacioun, ethir Y schal speke to hym bi `a dreem. And he seide, And my seruaunt Moises is not siche, which is moost feithful in al myn hows; for Y speke to hym mouth to mouth, and he seeth God opynli, and not bi derke spechis and figuris. Why therfor dredden ye not to bacbite `ether depraue my seruaunt Moises? And the Lord was wrooth ayens hem, and he wente a wei. And the cloude yede awei, that was on the tabernacle and lo! Marie apperide whijt with lepre as snow. And whanne Aaron biheelde hir, and siy hir bispreynd with lepre, he seide to Moises, My lord, Y beseche, putte thou not this synne on vs, which we diden folili, that this womman be not maad as deed, and as a deed borun thing which is cast out of the `wombe of his modir; lo! now the half of hir fleisch is deuourid with lepre. And Moises criede to the Lord, and seide, Lord, Y biseche, heele thou hir. To whom the Lord answerid, If hir fadir hadde spet in to hir face, where sche ouyte not to be fillid with schame, nameli in seuene daies? Therfor be sche departid out of the tentis bi seuen daies, and aftirward sche schal be clepid ayen. And so Marie was excludid out of the tentis bi seuene daies; and the puple was not mouyd fro that place, til Marie was clepid ayen.|

I noticed two obvious word or translation edits and changes of the Bible verse and text. Although, at first the germanic text might seem a little difficult, if one were to review spelling rules and train on reading the text; one could become quite proficient.
BTW, verse 16 is found in the TORAH below.

The Spiritual teaching of the TORAH is be only during Live Bible Study. The TORAH verse below are for those 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 highlighted to us for this Bible Study.
Let us begin!!!!!
3. Torah Spiritual Teaching Notes:
Numbers ch 12:
Link to e-versoin of Torah:
|1Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman.|
|2They said, “Has the Lord spoken only to Moses? Hasn’t He spoken to us too?” And the Lord heard.|
|3Now this man Moses was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth.|
|4The Lord suddenly said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, “Go out, all three of you, to the Tent of Meeting!” And all three went out.|
|5The Lord descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. He called to Aaron and Miriam, and they both went out.|
|6He said, “Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, [I] the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream.|
|7Not so is My servant Moses; he is faithful throughout My house.|
|8With him I speak mouth to mouth; in a vision and not in riddles, and he beholds the image of the Lord. So why were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses ?|
|9The wrath of the Lord flared against them and He left.|
|10The cloud departed from above the Tent, and behold, Miriam was afflicted with tzara’ath, [as white] as snow. Then Aaron turned to Miriam and behold, she was afflicted with tzara’ath.|
|11Aaron said to Moses, “Please, master, do not put sin upon us for acting foolishly and for sinning.|
|12Let her not be like the dead, which comes out of his mother’s womb with half his flesh consumed!”|
|13Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, “I beseech you, God, please heal her.”|
|14The Lord replied to Moses, “If her father were to spit in her face, would she not be humiliated for seven days? She shall be confined for seven days outside the camp, and afterwards she may enter.|
|15So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered.|
|16Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran.|
|1And I lifted my eyes, and I saw-and behold!-four horns.|
|2And I said to the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these?” And he said to me, “These are the horns that scattered Judah and Israel and Jerusalem.”|
|3And the Lord showed me four craftsmen.|
|4And I said, “What are these coming to do?” And he said, saying, “These are the horns that scattered Judah to the extent that no man raised his head. And these came to cause them to quake, to cast away the horns of the nations that bear a horn against the land of Judah, to scatter it.”|
|5And I lifted my eyes, and I saw-and behold!-a man with a measuring line in his hand.|
|6And I said, “Where are you going?” And he said to me, “To measure Jerusalem, to see how much is its breadth and how much [is] its length.”|
|7And behold, the angel who was speaking with me was coming forth, and another angel was coming forth toward him.|
|8And he said to him, “Run, speak to this young man, saying: ‘Jerusalem shall be inhabited like unwalled towns, because of the multitude of men and cattle therein.’ “|
|9But I will be for it-says the Lord-a wall of fire around, and for glory I will be in its midst.|
|10Ho, ho! Flee from the land of the north, says the Lord; for I have spread you as the four corners of the heavens, says the Lord.|
|11Ho, Zion! Flee, she who sits among the nation of Babylon.|
|12For so said the Lord of Hosts: After glory, He sent me to the nations that plunder you, for whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye.|
|13For, behold! I raise My hand over them, and they shall be prey for those who serve them. And you shall know that the Lord of Hosts sent me.|
|14Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for, behold! I will come and dwell in your midst, says the Lord.|
|15And many nations shall join the Lord on that day, and they shall be My people; and I will dwell in your midst and you shall know that the Lord of Hosts sent me to you.|
|16And the Lord shall inherit Judah as His share on the Holy Land, and He shall again choose Jerusalem.|
|17Silence all flesh from before the Lord, for He is aroused out of His holy habitation.|
|1And He showed me Joshua, the High Priest, standing before the angel of the Lord. And Satan was standing on his right, to accuse him.|
|2And the Lord said to Satan: The Lord shall rebuke you, O Satan; and the Lord shall rebuke you, He who chose Jerusalem. Is this one not a brand plucked from fire?|
|3Now Joshua was wearing filthy garments and standing before the angel.|
|4And he [the angel] raised his voice and said to those standing before him, saying, “Take the filthy garments off him.” And he said to him, “See, I have removed your iniquity from you, and I have clad you with clean garments.”|
|5And I said, “Let them put a pure miter on his head,” and they put the pure miter on his head. And they had clothed him with garments while the angel of the Lord was standing.|
|6And the angel of the Lord warned Joshua, saying,|
|7So said the Lord of Hosts: If you walk in My ways, and if you keep My charge, you, too, shall judge My house, and you, too, shall guard My courtyards, and I will give you free access among these who stand by.|
|8Hearken, now, O Joshua the High Priest-you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men worthy of a miracle-for, behold! I bring My servant, the Shoot.|
|9For, behold the stone that I have placed before Joshua. Seven eyes are directed to one stone. Behold! I untie its knots, says the Lord of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.|
|10On that day, says the Lord of Hosts, you shall call-each man to his neighbor-to come under his vine and under his fig tree.|
|1And the angel who spoke with me returned, and he awakened me as a man who wakes up from his sleep.|
|2And he said to me, “What do you see?” And I said, “I saw, and behold [there was] a candelabrum all of gold, with its oil-bowl on top of it, and its seven lamps thereon; seven tubes each to the lamps that were on top of it.|
|3And [there were] two olive trees near it; one on the right of the bowl, and one on its left.|
|4So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”|
|5And the angel who spoke with me answered, and he said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.”|
|6And he answered and spoke to me, saying, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying: ‘Not by military force and not by physical strength, but by My spirit,’ says the Lord of Hosts.|
|7Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you sink to a plain! He will bring out the stone of the main architect, with shouts of grace, grace to it.”|
AMEN AND AMEN.
