Moses had sent twelve men into the land before them; the Promised Land; and the twelve returned with some glowing reports. Ten of them, however, only saw the obstacles, the giants in the land, and refused to see the Divine possibilities.

"And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard it; and His anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

While we look at Leviticus, and the holiness of God we need to remember these are part of the work of the schoolmaster which leads us to Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:24-25), and "...we are no longer under a schoolmaster".
