In numbers 33:2 we have a reversal of word order.  "Moses wrote their goings
out according to thier journeys .......   these are their journeys according
to their goings out".

What I am interested in here is the noun MOTSA,  this word conveys varied
meanings throughout scripture, but the underlying theme seems always to be a
sense of "Destiny"  IE it was the "Purpose" of the subject that it should
"MOTSA/carry out" this function.

Can anybody confirm this thinking or make suggestions?

Regards  Chris.
