12 Anyone who acts presumptuously and does not obey the priest who officiates there in the ministry of the LORD, your God, or the judge, shall die. Thus shall you purge the evil from Israel. 13 And all the people, on hearing of it, shall fear, and will never again act presumptuously.
There are two meanings for the word presumption.
- An act or instance of taking something to be true or adopting a particular attitude toward something, especially at the start of a chain of argument or action.
- Behavior perceived as arrogant, disrespectful, and transgressing the limits of what is permitted or appropriate."he lifted her off the ground and she was enraged at his presumption"
synonyms:brazenness, audacity, boldness, audaciousness, temerity, arrogance,presumptuousness, forwardness; cockiness, insolence, impudence,bumptiousness, impertinence, effrontery, cheek, cheekiness; rudeness, impoliteness, disrespect, familiarity; informal nerve, chutzpah, sass, sassiness; archaic assumption "he apologized for his presumption"
God wants us as sons and daughters; not lawyers. If you have sinned do not be haughty or insolent; do not plead the fifth with God. When you confess obey the instructions of the priest.
