Make Things Right 

Old Testament: Num 5.8

To read the Bible in a year, read Numbers 5–6 on February 21, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023

By Don Ruhl 

The Law of Moses ordered that when a person did something wrong, he had to make restitution, either to the one wronged, or if that person was gone, then it went to a relative: 

“But if the man has no relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution for the wrong must go to the LORD for the priest, in addition to the ram of the atonement with which atonement is made for him.”

– Numbers 5.8 

The sinner could not get out of making restitution, because the restitution would go to the one wronged, or to his relative, but if neither one of those were possible, then it would go to the Lord who designated it for the priest. 

Making things right is the Bible way. 


  • Why is restitution good for the one who did the wrong? 
  • Do you seek to make things right?
