He appeared from Mount Paran,

And approached from Ribeboth-kodesh,

Lightning flashing at them from His right.b

b Meaning of Heb. mimino eshdath uncertain, perhaps a place name.

Masorah:      This is one of 15 cases where the written text has a single word that is to be read out loud as two words.

This is Torah Talk for the week of June 11th, 2017

Num. 15:30        But the person, be he citizen or stranger, who acts defiantly [ביד רמה] reviles the Lord; that person shall be cut off from among his people. 31 Because he has spurned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment, that person shall be cut off—he bears his guilt.

Rashi: Literally, “with a high hand”—deliberately rather than inadvertently.
