“Moses and Aaron were among his priests.
Samuel also was among
Those who called on his name.
They cried to Yahweh.
He answered them.
He spoke to them in the pillar of the cloud.
They kept his decrees.
They kept the statutes that he gave them.”
We see that there are 3 main figures of the past that dominate, Moses, Aaron, and Samuel. Moses and Aaron were called priests. Samuel was more of a prophet intercessor. They cried to Yahweh who answered them in the cloud pillar. Why were these ancient ones of Moses, Aaron, and Samuel successful? They kept the decrees and statutes of Yahweh. These decrees and statutes came directly from Yahweh, so that there was very little dispute about them.
