God knows differently. In Numbers, V., 17, we read God’s command, “The Priest shall take holy water.” In Numbers, VIII., 7, God ordered Moses to purify the Levites as follows, “Take the Levites out of the midst of the children of Israel, and thou shalt purify them according to this rite; let them be sprinkled with the water of purification.” God does nothing uselessly, and if you ridicule the practice, you ridicule God.
