"In those days I also saw Jews who had married women of Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab.
They need to read Deuteronomy -14 where instructions are given on how to marry female war prisoners -- women taken from among the enemies of God's people.
After the death of Zipporah the Midianite, Moses married a foreign woman.
Yet among many nations there was no king like him, who was beloved of his God; and God made him king over all Israel.
Nevertheless pagan women caused even him to sin." (Neh. After returning from Babylonian captivity, the leaders of the people went to Ezra and said, "The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands, with respect to the abominations of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.
One of the passages they like to (mis)quote is Deuteronomy 7:1-4, "When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you go to possess, and has cast out many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you, and when the Lord your God delivers them over to you, you shall conquer them and utterly destroy them.
You shall make no covenant with them nor show mercy to them. You shall not give your daughter to their son, nor take their daughter for your son."Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman" (Num. As Albert Barnes wrote in his commentary more than 100 years ago, "The marriage of Moses with a woman descended from Ham was not prohibited, so long as she was not of the stock of Canaan (cp. xxxiv.11-16); but it would at any time have been offensive to that intense nationality which characterized the Jews." Moses tells us the Lord was angry with them for their improper speech (Num. Apparently Miriam was the instigator, and as punishment for her sin, God turned her into a leper, "as white as the snow" (Num. It appears as if the Lord was saying to Miriam: if you think white is better than black, then I will make you really white (i.e., a leper). In Matthew 1:5 we read, "Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab." Rahab had been a heathen prostitute in Jericho (Joshua 2:1).This incident was recorded so Israel would know there was to be no racial prejudice among them. I wonder if Vernon Barr thinks Moses was a Marxist or an atheist? Matthew 1:5 also tells us, "Boaz begot Obed by Ruth." Ruth was a heathen woman from the land of Moab, who became an ancestor of King David and Jesus.Ezra - Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave [it] for an inheritance to your children for ever.Numbers 12:1 - And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.Over the years I have met individuals who have turned their racial prejudice into "Bible doctrine." In this article we will look at a few passages these "bigots in sheep's clothing" use to propagate their dogma of racial superiority and/or separation.
