"My spirit shall not abide in man forever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years."(Genesis 6:3)
The verse seems very difficult for me to understand. Would you explain it to me understand it easily?
Numbers 19:1-22 discusses the Red Heifer and purification.
The entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people settled in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there.
How is verse 20:1 interpreted to mean "AFTER FORTY YEARS of journeying through the desert" they arrived at Zin?
There is no mention of years.
Parasha CHUKAT NUMBERS 19:11-12
The person who touches a corpse is unclean for 7 days.
Therefore, cleansing on the 7th day makes sense to me.
Do the days represent the number of days after touching the corpse or the days of the week (3rd day would be Tuesday, 7th day would be Saturday)?
Main Question: What is the significance of the third day?
