      1  Aaron,s rod, among all the rods of the tribes, only
        flourishes.
    10  It is left for a monument against the rebels.
    
    
    VERSE 1
       * :1
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - a rod.
      The word {matteh} signifies a staff, or sceptre, which the
      prince or chief of each tribe bore, and which was the sign of
      office or royalty among almost all the people of the earth.
    
    - all their princes.
       * Nu 1:5-16; 2:3-30; 10:14-27
    - twelve rods.
       * Ge 49:10 Ex 4:2,17 Ps 110:2; 125:3 Eze 19:14; 21:10,13
       * Eze 37:16-20 Mic 7:14
    
    VERSE 3
        * Nu 3:2,3; 18:1,7 Ex 6:16,20
    
    VERSE 4
        * Ex 25:16-22; 29:42,43; 30:6,36
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - Whom I.  See on ch.
       * Nu 16:5
    - blossom.
       * :8 Isa 5:24; 11:1; 27:6; 35:1,2 Ho 14:5
    - I will.
       * :10 Isa 13:11 Eze 16:41; 23:27
    - they murmur.  See on ch.
       * Nu 16:11
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - a rod a-piece, for each prince one.  Heb. a rod for one
      prince, a rod for one prince.  See on ver.
       * :2
    
    VERSE 7
        * Nu 18:2 Ex 38:21 Ac 7:44
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - the rod of Aaron.
      This fact was so unquestionably miraculous, that no doubt
      could remain on the minds of the people, or the envious
      chiefs, of the divine appointment of Aaron:  and as there were
      buds, blossoms, and fruit on the rod at the same time, which
      was never the case with branches in the natural and ordinary
      course, this evidently proved the miracle, and took away all
      suspicion of the fraud which has been impiously suggested,
      that Moses had taken away Aaron's rod in the night time, and
      put a living branch of an almond tree in the room of it.  A
      sceptre or staff of office resuming its vegetative life, was
      considered an absolute impossibility among the ancients; and
      as they were accustomed to swear by their sceptres, this
      circumstance was added to confirm the oath.
    
    - budded.  See on ver.
       * :5 Ge 40:10 Ps 110:2; 132:17,18 So 2:3 Isa 4:2 Eze 17:24
       * Eze 19:12,14 Joh 15:1-6
    
    VERSE 9
    
    
    VERSE 10 
     - Bring Aaron's.
       * Heb 9:4
    - for a token.
       * Nu 16:38,40 Ex 16:32 De 31:19-26
    - rebels.  Heb. children of rebellion.
       * 1Sa 2:12; 30:22 Ps 57:4 Isa 1:2 Ho 10:9 Eph 2:2,3; 5:6
    - and thou.
       * :5
    
    VERSE 11
    
    
    VERSE 12 
     - Behold.
       * Nu 26:11 Ps 90:7 Pr 19:3 Isa 57:16 Heb 12:5
    - we die.
      {Gawanoo,} "we expire:"  it signifies not so much to die
      simply, as to feel an extreme difficulty in breathing, which
      producing suffocation, ends at last in death.  See the folly
      and extravagance of this sinful people, in thus rebelling
      against the authority of those whom Jehovah had appointed to
      be their rulers.
    
    
    VERSE 13 
     - Whosoever.
       * Nu 1:51-53; 18:4-7
    - any thing.
       * Ge 3:3 1Sa 6:19-21 2Sa 6:6-12 1Ch 13:11-13; 15:13 Ps 130:3,4
       * Ac 5:5,11-14 Eph 2:13 Heb 10:19-22
    - consumed.
       * Nu 16:26; 32:13 De 2:16 Job 34:14,15 Ps 90:7 Isa 28:22
