This book gets its name from the account it gives of the

"numbers" of the children of Israel.

It contains an history of the Israelites, and of their travel in

the wilderness for the space of thirty eight years. It is not

merely historical, but gives a particular account of several laws,

ceremonial and judicial, to be observed by the people of Israel, as

well as has many things in it very instructive, both of a moral and

evangelical nature.
