"And it came to pass on the way, at the encampment, that the Lord met him and sought to kill him" I've been reading the bible lately. Picked it up a about a month ago and finshed Genesis; now onto Exodus. I stumble across the scripture above and am flabergasted. I search on the internet, read comentary, but have yet to find a solid explanation for this scripture which seems to stick out like a sore thumb amongst the others. Please, explain what you feel this verse means and how it fits into the surrounding scriptures.
