Israelite Fringes | Num 15:38

Tags

Ever notice that so-called medieval “knights” are oft depiected with borders or fringes on their clothing? A remnant of our Israelite heritage is the reason why. Desribes in Numbers below, also in Deuteronomy.

Num 15:37 | And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: 39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: 40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
