Commentary:  God was with the Israelites every step of their 40-year journey in the desert.  We may not know exactly what happened, but we know that God was with them.  God also provided instructions for the Israelites for entering the Promised Land, instructions which the Israelites did not follow.  God, however, still has a plan!  For everyone!  Chapter 35 focuses on the cities for the Levites, which also serve as safe refuge for those who commit unintentional murder.  In the final chapter we return to a pervious issue: the daughters of Zelophehad, who had several daughters but no sons.
