\\INTRODUCTION TO NUMBERS 17\\

In this chapter the priesthood of Aaron is further confirmed and
established by the budding and blossom of his rod, as it lay among the
princes of the several tribes, when theirs did not, \\#Nu 17:1-9\\; which
rod of Aaron was ordered to be laid up before the ark, as a token
against the rebels, and to put an end to all murmurings against Aaron
for the future; which was accordingly done, \\#Nu 17:10,11\\; upon which
the people expressed their fear of perishing because of their sins,
\\#Nu 17:12,13\\.
