And he said to them, "Thus says the LORD God of Israel, `Put every man his sword on his side, and go to and fro from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor."
A biblical story lesson on how the real message in the Word is used by the Lord's people. The spirits rebelling against God and insisting on a lie to satisfy their pride simply cannot be accomodated by Moses' camp. Their blood (spiritual life - forgiveness) is spilt rather than kept (they rebel). It's just the way it is.
