- The consequence of Israel's sin of unbelief was death and one year for each day they explored the promised land. Numbers 14:31-38
- Only Joshua and Caleb survived of the men who went to Canaan because they followed the Lord completely.
- Psalm 90:1-17 is the earliest psalm.
- There were more instructions for offerings once the Israelites entered their promised land.
- As a sign of separation the Israelites were to make tassels for the corners of their garments, and put a blue cord on the tassel at each corner. These will serve as tassels for you to look at, so that you may remember all the LORD'S commands and obey them and not become unfaithful by following your own heart and your own eyes. This way you will remember and obey all My commands and be holy to your God. Numbers 15:38-40
- The consequence of work on a Sabbath was death by stoning.

Quoated from Wikipedia: The tzitzit ("knotted fringes") of the tallit ("[prayer] shawl") are connected to the 613 commandments by interpretation: principal Torah commentator Rashi bases the number of knots on a gematria: the word tzitzit (Hebrew: ציצת (Biblical), ציצית, in its Mishnaic spelling) has the value 600. Each tassel has eight threads (when doubled over) and five sets of knots, totalling 13. The sum of all numbers is 613. This reflects the concept that donning a garment with tzitzit reminds its wearer of all Torah commandments.
