IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE INTERPRETATIONS DO NOT REPLACE THE READING OF THE BIBLE BUT MERELY PLACE VARIOUS MATTERS IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT AND HIGHLIGHT VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JEHOVAH GOD ONLY “GIVES” US WHAT WE AS HUMANS “NEED” TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, HIS INTENTIONS, HIS PLANS AND HIS DESIRES!!
CONTINUING WITH THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS
LEVITICUS Chapter 6
A very brief interpretation of Chapter 6 will follow:
This Chapter considers the absolute seriousness of sins that people tend to consider as “harmless”, “acceptable”, etc. namely:
“Revealing confidential secrets”,
“Better to keep quiet about”,
“Lying and lies, including ‘the little white lies’”,
“The breaking of promises”,
“To testify falsely or swearing falsely”,
“Finding a ‘Lost’ article, and then keeping it”, etc.
The Chapter further elaborates on the actions to be taken to nullify the severity of the above-mentioned sinning; and make the possibility of obtaining forgiveness.
The continuity of the keeping of the fire of the altar burning day and night is also informed about; as well as the procedures as to how the meat and ashes should be handled.
Certain portions of certain of the sacrificial meats could be eaten by Aaron and his priests; whereas others were not to be eaten of at all.
My Next Post should cover LEVITICUS Chapter 7.
