The Jewish people went to war with Midian and with a blessing from Moses defeated them and killed all of the Midianites off. They returned from the war and split the rewards among themselves. They took over the Transjordan and were given directions on how to take over Canaan. They divided the land amongst themselves and gave cities to certain groups of people such as the Levites. There were also some rules established because this is Numbers after all and the Bible can’t afford for this book to become too exciting.
