Jeremiah Burroughs Looks Back to the Disobedient Israelites in the Book of Numbers to Show How Gods Anger is Kindled Against the Sin of Murmuring

October 1, 2015


"And observe further in this verse, how the Lord repeats this sin of murmuring, how long shall I bear with this evil congregation which murmur against me? Secondly, I have heard their murmuring. Thirdly, which they murmur against me: Murmur, murmur, murmur, three times in one verse he repeats it; and this is to show his indignation against the thing: When you express indignation against a thing, you will repeat it over again, and again; now the Lord because he would express his indignation against this sin, he repeats it over again, and again, and it follows; in verse 28. Say unto them, as truly as I live faith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you."
