TITLE, Moses. See Appdx-2.

Numbers. Translation of Greek name in Sept. given by man according to his idea of contents. Heb. Title = Bemidbar "in the wilderness", because it records what took place there; the numberings (1-3 and 26) being only two of the events. It is the book of the sojournings, the fourth book of the Pentateuch (see Appdx-10 and Deuteronomy 1:1).

Four is the number of the earth:hence the types of Numbers, the fourth book, are wilderness types (cp. the fourth book of the Psalms, 90-106). Its types of Christ, the Son of Man on earth, are four:
