Numbers begins at Mount Sinai, where the Israelites have received their laws and covenant from God and God has taken up residence among them in the sanctuary..The people are numbered and preparations are made for resuming their march...For these acts, God destroys approximately 15,000 of them through various means..Numbers is the culmination of the story of Israel's exodus from oppression in Egypt and their journey to take possession of the land God promised their fathers..Numbers also demonstrates the importance of holiness, faithfulness and trust: despite God's presence and his priests, Israel lacks faith and the possession of the land is left to a new generation..The book has a long and complex history, but its final form is probably due to a Priestly redaction (i.e., editing) of a Yahwistic original text some time in the early Persian period (5th century BCE)...

First reading – Numbers 16:1–13-In the first reading (עליה, aliyah), the Levite Korah son of Izhar joined with the Reubenites Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On, son of Peleth and 250 chieftains of the Israelite community to rise up against Moses told Korah and his band to take their fire pans and put fire and incense on them before God..Moses sent for Dathan and Abiram, but they refused to come..Jews generally read it in June or July..Second reading – Numbers 16:14–19-In the second reading (עליה, aliyah), the next day, Korah and his band took their fire pans and gathered the whole community against Moses and Aaron at the entrance of the Tabernacle..Third reading – Numbers 16:20–17:8-In the third reading (עליה, aliyah), the Presence of the Lord appeared to the whole community, and God told Moses and Aaron to stand back so that God could annihilate the others...

The house was demolished by the local Council..Wardle is a village (SJ 610 570) and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England..The Shropshire Union Canal and the A51 run side by side across the parish from the north west to the south east..Wardle is the most northerly settlement in Greater Manchester..The name Wardle is said to be derived from "Ward Hill", implying "fortified place".. Brown Wardle Hill overlooks the village from the north, its name being derived from the Celtic word bron meaning "round"..Wardle is south of the Watergrove Reservoir and west of Littleborough..OS grid reference SD912168– London 170 mi (270 km) SSE - Postcode district OL12-Dialling code 01706..Johnny Wardle (8 January 1923 – 23 July 1985) was an English spin bowler of post-war cricket..Hattersley was born on 28 December 1932 in Sheffield, England to Fred and Enid Hattersley..

Myra Hindley and her grandmother (the actual tenant) were rehoused in Hattersley in 1964 and lived at 16 Wardle Brook Avenue..Between 1894 and 1936 Hattersley was a civil parish in the Tintwistle Rural District in the historical county of Cheshire.. In 1936 it was annexed to the municipal borough of Hyde but remained undeveloped..In the 1960s most of the area was purchased by Manchester City Council to build a large overspill estate..Hattersley was also home to members of a network of football hooligans known as the Wide Awake Firm who travelled the world, stealing jewellery and committing other acquisitive forms of crime..They travelled as far afield as Thailand and Australia committing this trick..The Precinct, and contained around 20 office,Wilds butchers,a charity store, Battersby chemists, a clothes shop run by Asian brothers, a Greggs bakery, and a double unit which sold new and second-hand electronics and a large pub called the Four in Hand..

You know, they say when you talk to God it's prayer, but when God talks to you, it's schizophrenia..Interesting that 2 of the century's most notorious serial killers were in Hyde within a short period - Harold Shipman and The Bradys ..

In speech, the numbers 16 and 60 are often confused..Sixteen is the fourth power of two.. For this reason, 16 was used in weighing light objects in several cultures.. The British have 16 ounces in one pound; the Chinese used to have 16 liangs in one jin.. In old days, weighing was done with a beam balance to make equal splits..As a power of 2 it has an aliquot sum one less than itself, 15; and is the 5th composite member of the 3-aliquot tree having the 7 member aliquot sequence (16, 15, 9, 4, 3, 1, 0)..16 is a centered pentagonal number..The atomic number of sulfur..Group 16 of the periodic table are the chalcogens..This group is also known as the oxygen family ...

The Book of the Wars of the Lord is one of several non-canonical books referenced in the Bible which have now been completely lost..Amongst academics, it is generally thought to be a collection of victory songs or poems, although some readers have suggested it may be a prose military history.. David Rosenberg suggests in his The Book of David that it was written in 1100 BCE or thereabouts..It has been suggested by the theologian Joseph Barber Lightfoot that the book was one and the same as the mysterious biblical Book of Jasher..Inverted nuns are found in nine passages of the Masoretic Text of the Bible..The Babylonian Talmud records in the tractate Shabbath, folio 116a, that the markings surrounding Numbers 10:35–36 were thought to denote that this 85 letter text was not in its proper place..It also suggests that the inverted nuns may suggest the Hebrew word נֵר ner, meaning 'a light'.."Rickaaaaaaay!.. lookin' for me?..But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked..You wanna watch your mind.. Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad..You’re mad..I dunno what you're talking about..How do you know I’m mad?..Beating up my brother, that's one thing.. But you didn't even have the guts to do it yourself!. What's the matter..What a regrettably large head you have..You don't know what you're talking about.. If you're hiding her, you will lose your heads...
