More on 42
Last summer I wrote 42-and-masay.html
I noted that there were 42 designated cities of refuge in all and 42 encampment in the desert. When reviewing Parshas Shmos, I noticed that the gematria of eheye is 21, so the original version of the name that Hashem imparts to Moshe that includes eheye twice is 42. That may be an allusion to the number of encampments they ended up with that Moshe considered too discouraging to hear about from the outset.
