Numbers
Chapter 1

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of

meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after

they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

2 Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by

their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, every male, by their polls;

3 from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war

in Israel, thou and Aaron shall number them by their hosts.

4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of his

fathers' house.

5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you. Of

Reuben: Elizur the son of Shedeur.

6 Of Simeon: Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

7 Of Judah: Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

8 Of Issachar: Nethanel the son of Zuar.

9 Of Zebulun: Eliab the son of Helon.

Manasseh: Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

13 Of Asher: Pagiel the son of Ochran.

14 Of Gad: Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

15 Of Napthtali: Ahira the son of Enan.

16 These are they that were called of the congregation, the princes of

the tribes of their fathers; they were the heads of the thousands of

Israel.

17. And Moses and Aaron took these men that are mentioned by name:

18 And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of

the second month; and they declared their pedigrees after their families,

by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, by their polls.

19 As Jehovah commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of

Sinai.

20 And the children of Reuben, Israel's first-born, their generations, by

their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all

that were able to go forth to war;

21 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Reuben, were forty

and six thousand and five hundred.

22 Of the children of Simeon, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, those that were numbered thereof, according to the

number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and

23 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty

and nine thousand and three hundred.

24 Of the children of Gad, their generations, by their families, by their

fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years

old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

25 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Gad, were forty and

five thousand six hundred and fifty.

26 Of the children of Judah, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

27 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Judah, were

threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.

28 Of the children of Issachar, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

29 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Issachar, were fifty

and four thousand and four hundred.

30 Of the children of Zebulun, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

31 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty

and seven thousand and four hundred.

32 Of the children of Joseph, [namely], of the children of Ephraim, their

generations, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the

number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able

to go forth to war;

33 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty

thousand and five hundred.

34 Of the children of Manasseh, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

35 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Manasseh, were

thirty and two thousand and two hundred.

36 Of the children of Benjamin, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

37 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Benjamin, were

thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

38 Of the children of Dan, their generations, by their families, by their

fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years

old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

39 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Dan, were threescore

and two thousand and seven hundred.

40 Of the children of Asher, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

41 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Asher, were forty

and one thousand and five hundred.

42 Of the children of Naphtali, their generations, by their families, by

their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty

years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

43 those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty

and three thousand and four hundred.

44. These are they that were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, and

the princes of Israel, being twelve men: they were each one for his

fathers' house.

45 So all they that were numbered of the children of Israel by their

fathers' houses, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go

forth to war in Israel;

46 even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three

thousand and five hundred and fifty.

47. But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered

among them.

48 For Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

49 Only the tribe of Levi thou shalt not number, neither shalt thou take

the sum of them among the children of Israel;

50 but appoint thou the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and

over all the furniture thereof, and over all that belongeth to it: they

shall bear the tabernacle, and all the furniture thereof; and they shall

minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.

51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it

down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it

up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his

own camp, and every man by his own standard, according to their hosts.

53 But the Levites shall encamp round about the tabernacle of the

testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of

Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of the

testimony.

54 Thus did the children of Israel; according to all that Jehovah

commanded Moses, so did they.

fathers' houses: all that were numbered of the camps according to their

hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and

fifty.

33 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as

34 Thus did the children of Israel; according to all that Jehovah

commanded Moses, so they encamped by their standards, and so they set

forward, every one by their families, according to their fathers' houses.



Numbers
Chapter 3

1. Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that

Jehovah spake with Moses in mount Sinai.

2 And these are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the first-born, and

Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests that were

anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.

4 And Nadab and Abihu died before Jehovah, when they offered strange fire

before Jehovah, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children; and

Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the presence of

Aaron their father.

5 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

6 Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest,

that they may minister unto him.

7 And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole

congregation before the tent of meeting, to do the service of the

tabernacle.

8 And they shall keep all the furniture of the tent of meeting, and the

charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle.

9 And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons: they are

wholly given unto him on the behalf of the children of Israel.

10 And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall keep their

priesthood: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

11 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

12 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of

Israel instead of all the first-born that openeth the womb among the

children of Israel; and the Levites shall be mine:

13 for all the first-born are mine; on the day that I smote all the

first-born in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the first-born in

Israel, both man and beast; mine they shall be: I am Jehovah.

14. And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying,

15 Number the children of Levi by their fathers' houses, by their

families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.

16 And Moses numbered them according to the word of Jehovah, as he was

commanded.

17 And these were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon, and Kohath,

and Merari.

18 And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families:

Libni and Shimei.

19 And the sons of Kohath by their families: Amram, and Izhar, Hebron,

and Uzziel.

20 And the sons of Merari by their families: Mahli and Mushi. These are

the families of the Levites according to their fathers' houses.

21 Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the

Shimeites: these are the families of the Gershonites.

22 Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the

males, from a month old and upward, even those that were numbered of them

were seven thousand and five hundred.

23 The families of the Gershonites shall encamp behind the tabernacle

westward.

24 And the prince of the fathers' house of the Gershonites shall be

Eliasaph the son of Lael.

25 And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tent of meeting shall be

the tabernacle, and the Tent, the covering thereof, and the screen for the

door of the tent of meeting,

26 and the hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the

court, which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and the

cords of it for all the service thereof.

27 And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family of the

Izharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of the

Uzzielites: these are the families of the Kohathites.

28 According to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward,

there were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the

sanctuary.

29 The families of the sons of Kohath shall encamp on the side of the

tabernacle southward.

30 And the prince of the fathers' house of the families of the Kohathites

shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel.

31 And their charge shall be the ark, and the table, and the candlestick,

and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith they minister,

and the screen, and all the service thereof.

32 And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be prince of the princes

of the Levites, [and have] the oversight of them that keep the charge of

the sanctuary.

33 Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the

Mushites: these are the families of Merari.

34 And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all

the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred.

35 And the prince of the fathers' house of the families of Merari was

Zuriel the son of Abihail: they shall encamp on the side of the tabernacle

northward.

36 And the appointed charge of the sons of Merari shall be the boards of

the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the

sockets thereof, and all the instruments thereof, and all the service

thereof,

37 and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their

pins, and their cords.

38 And those that encamp before the tabernacle eastward, before the tent

of meeting toward the sunrising, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons,

keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of

Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

39 All that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron numbered

at the commandment of Jehovah, by their families, all the males from a

month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

40. And Jehovah said unto Moses, Number all the first-born males of the

children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of

their names.

41 And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am Jehovah) instead of all

the first-born among the children of Israel; and the cattle of the Levites

instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children of Israel:

42 and Moses numbered, as Jehovah commanded him, all the first-born among

the children of Israel.

43 And all the first-born males according to the number of names, from a

month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and

two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

44 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

45 Take the Levites instead of all the first-born among the children of

Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle; and the

Levites shall be mine: I am Jehovah.

46 And for the redemption of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen

of the first-born of the children of Israel, that are over and above [the

number of] the Levites,

47 thou shalt take five shekels apiece by the poll; after the shekel of

the sanctuary shalt thou take them (the shekel is twenty gerahs):

48 and thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is

redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons.

49 And Moses took the redemption-money from them that were over and above

them that were redeemed by the Levites;

50 from the first-born of the children of Israel took he the money, a

thousand three hundred and threescore and five [shekels], after the shekel

of the sanctuary:

51 and Moses gave the redemption-money unto Aaron and to his sons,

according to the word of Jehovah, as Jehovah commanded Moses.



Numbers
Chapter 4

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

2 Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by

their families, by their fathers' houses,

3 from thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that

enter upon the service, to do the work in the tent of meeting.

4 This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting,

[about] the most holy things:

5 when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall go in, and his sons, and

they shall take down the veil of the screen, and cover the ark of the

testimony with it,

6 and shall put thereon a covering of sealskin, and shall spread over it

a cloth all of blue, and shall put in the staves thereof.

7 And upon the table of showbread they shall spread a cloth of blue, and

put thereon the dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls and the cups

wherewith to pour out; and the continual bread shall be thereon:

8 and they shall spread upon them a cloth of scarlet, and cover the same

with a covering of sealskin, and shall put in the staves thereof.

9 And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the candlestick of the

light, and its lamps, and its snuffers, and its snuffdishes, and all the

oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it:

10 and they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of

sealskin, and shall put it upon the frame.

11 And upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue, and cover

it with a covering of sealskin, and shall put in the staves thereof:

12 and they shall take all the vessels of ministry, wherewith they

minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of blue, and cover them

with a covering of sealskin, and shall put them on the frame.

13 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple

cloth thereon:

14 and they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith they

minister about it, the firepans, the flesh-hooks, and the shovels, and the

basins, all the vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a

covering of sealskin, and put in the staves thereof.

15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the

sanctuary, and all the furniture of the sanctuary, as the camp is set

forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they

shall not touch the sanctuary, lest they die. These things are the burden

of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting.

16 And the charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be the oil

for the light, and the sweet incense, and the continual meal-offering, and

the anointing oil, the charge of all the tabernacle, and of all that

therein is, the sanctuary, and the furniture thereof.

17 And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

18 Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among

the Levites;

19 but thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they

approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and

appoint them every one to his service and to his burden;

20 but they shall not go in to see the sanctuary even for a moment, lest

they die.

21. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

22 Take the sum of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' houses, by

their families;

23 from thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou

number them; all that enter in to wait upon the service, to do the work in

the tent of meeting.

24 This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, in serving and

in bearing burdens:

25 they shall bear the curtains of the tabernacle, and the tent of

meeting, its covering, and the covering of sealskin that is above upon it,

and the screen for the door of the tent of meeting,

26 and the hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the gate

of the court, which is by the tabernacle and by the altar round about, and

their cords, and all the instruments of their service, and whatsoever shall

be done with them: therein shall they serve.

27 At the commandment of Aaron and his sons shall be all the service of

the sons of the Gershonites, in all their burden, and in all their service;

and ye shall appoint unto them in charge all their burden.

28 This is the service of the families of the sons of the Gershonites in

the tent of meeting: and their charge shall be under the hand of Ithamar

the son of Aaron the priest.

29 As for the sons of Merari, thou shalt number them by their families,

by their fathers' houses;

30 from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old shalt thou

number them, every one that entereth upon the service, to do the work of

the tent of meeting.

31 And this is the charge of their burden, according to all their service

in the tent of meeting: the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof,

and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof,

32 and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their

pins, and their cords, with all their instruments, and with all their

service: and by name ye shall appoint the instruments of the charge of

their burden.

33 This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari, according

to all their service, in the tent of meeting, under the hand of Ithamar the

son of Aaron the priest.

34. And Moses and Aaron and the princes of the congregation numbered the

sons of the Kohathites by their families, and by their fathers' houses,

35 from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one

that entered upon the service, for work in the tent of meeting:

36 and those that were numbered of them by their families were two

thousand seven hundred and fifty.

37 These are they that were numbered of the families of the Kohathites,

all that did serve in the tent of meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered

according to the commandment of Jehovah by Moses.

38 And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon, their families,

and by their fathers' houses,

39 from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one

that entered upon the service, for work in the tent of meeting,

40 even those that were numbered of them, by their families, by their

fathers' houses, were two thousand and six hundred and thirty.

41 These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons of

Gershon, all that did serve in the tent of meeting, whom Moses and Aaron

numbered according to the commandment of Jehovah.

42 And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, by

their families, by their fathers' houses,

43 from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one

that entered upon the service, for work in the tent of meeting,

44 even those that were numbered of them by their families, were three

thousand and two hundred.

45 These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons of

Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of

Jehovah by Moses.

46 All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron and

the princes of Israel numbered, by their families, and by their fathers'

houses,

47 from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one

that entered in to do the work of service, and the work of bearing burdens

in the tent of meeting,

48 even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and five

hundred and fourscore.

49 According to the commandment of Jehovah they were numbered by Moses,

every one according to his service, and according to his burden: thus were

they numbered of him, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

 



Numbers
Chapter 5

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every

leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is unclean by the

dead:

3 both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put

them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst whereof I dwell.

4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp;

as Jehovah spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.

5 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

6 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any

sin that men commit, so as to trespass against Jehovah, and that soul shall

be guilty;

7 then he shall confess his sin which he hath done: and he shall make

restitution for his guilt in full, and add unto it the fifth part thereof,

and give it unto him in respect of whom he hath been guilty.

8 But if the man have no kinsman to whom restitution may be made for the

guilt, the restitution for guilt which is made unto Jehovah shall be the

priest's; besides the ram of the atonement, whereby atonement shall be made

for him.

9 And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the children of

Israel, which they present unto the priest, shall be his.

10 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man

giveth the priest, it shall be his.

11. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

12 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's

wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

13 and a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her

husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness

against her, and she be not taken in the act;

14 and the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his

wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and

he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

15 then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and shall bring her

oblation for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour

no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is a meal-offering of

jealousy, a meal-offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

16 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before Jehovah:

17 and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the

dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put

it into the water.

18 And the priest shall set the woman before Jehovah, and let the hair of

the woman's head go loose, and put the meal-offering of memorial in her

hands, which is the meal-offering of jealousy: and the priest shall have in

his hand the water of bitterness that causeth the curse.

19 And the priest shall cause her to swear, and shall say unto the woman,

If no man have lain with thee, and if thou have not gone aside to

uncleanness, being under thy husband, be thou free from this water of

bitterness that causeth the curse.

20 But if thou have gone aside, being under thy husband, and if thou be

defiled, and some man have lain with thee besides thy husband:

21 then the priest shall cause the woman to swear with the oath of

cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, Jehovah make thee a curse

and an oath among thy people, when Jehovah doth make thy thigh to fall

away, and thy body to swell;

22 and this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, and

make thy body to swell, and thy thigh to fall away. And the woman shall

say, Amen, Amen.

23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot

them out into the water of bitterness:

24 and he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causeth

the curse; and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her [and

become] bitter.

25 And the priest shall take the meal-offering of jealousy out of the

woman's hand, and shall wave the meal-offering before Jehovah, and bring it

unto the altar:

26 and the priest shall take a handful of the meal-offering, as the

memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall make the

woman drink the water.

27 And when he hath made her drink the water, then it shall come to pass,

if she be defiled, and have committed a trespass against her husband, that

the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her [and become] bitter,

and her body shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away: and the woman

shall be a curse among her people.

28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free,

and shall conceive seed.

29 This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her husband,

goeth aside, and is defiled;

30 or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon a man, and he is jealous of

his wife; then shall he set the woman before Jehovah, and the priest shall

execute upon her all this law.

31 And the man shall be free from iniquity, and that woman shall bear her

iniquity.



Numbers
Chapter 6

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man

or woman shall make a special vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to separate

himself unto Jehovah,

3 he shall separate himself from wine and strong drink; he shall drink no

vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any

juice of grapes, nor eat fresh grapes or dried.

4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the

grape-vine, from the kernels even to the husk.

5 All the days of his vow of separation there shall no razor come upon

his head: until the days be fulfilled, in which he separateth himself unto

Jehovah, he shall be holy; he shall let the locks of the hair of his head

grow long.

6 All the days that he separateth himself unto Jehovah he shall not come

near to a dead body.

7 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother,

for his brother, or for his sister, when they die; because his separation

unto God is upon his head.

8 All the days of his separation he is holy unto Jehovah.

9 And if any man die very suddenly beside him, and he defile the head of

his separation; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing,

on the seventh day shall he shave it.

10 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtle-doves, or two young

pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting:

11 and the priest shall offer one for a sin-offering, and the other for a

burnt-offering, and make atonement for him, for that he sinned by reason of

the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day.

12 And he shall separate unto Jehovah the days of his separation, and

shall bring a he-lamb a year old for a trespass-offering; but the former

days shall be void, because his separation was defiled.

13 And this is the law of the Nazirite, when the days of his separation

are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tent of meeting:

14 and he shall offer his oblation unto Jehovah, one he-lamb a year old

without blemish for a burnt-offering, and one ewe-lamb a year old without

blemish for a sin-offering, and one ram without blemish for

peace-offerings,

15 and a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with

oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and their meal-offering, and

their drink-offerings.

16 And the priest shall present them before Jehovah, and shall offer his

sin-offering, and his burnt-offering:

17 and he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto

Jehovah, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also

the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof.

18 And the Nazrite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of

the tent of meeting, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation,

and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of peace-offerings.

19 And the priest shall take the boiled shoulder of the ram, and one

unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and shall put

them upon the hands of the Nazirite, after he hath shaven [the head of] his

separation;

20 and the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before Jehovah;

this is holy for the priest, together with the wave-breast and heave-thigh:

and after that the Nazirite may drink wine.

21 This is the law of the Nazirite who voweth, [and of] his oblation unto

Jehovah for his separation, besides that which he is able to get: according

to his vow which he voweth, so he must do after the law of his separation.

22. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall

bless the children of Israel: ye shall say unto them,

24 Jehovah bless thee, and keep thee:

25 Jehovah make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26 Jehovah lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

27 So shall they put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will

bless them.



Numbers
Chapter 7

1. And it came to pass on the day that Moses had made an end of setting up

the tabernacle, and had anointed it and sanctified it, and all the

furniture thereof, and the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had

anointed them and sanctified them;

2 that the princes of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses,

offered. These were the princes of the tribes, these are they that were

over them that were numbered:

3 and they brought their oblation before Jehovah, six covered wagons, and

twelve oxen; a wagon for every two of the princes, and for each one an ox:

and they presented them before the tabernacle.

4 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

5 Take it of them, that they may be [used] in doing the service of the

tent of meeting; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man

according to his service.

6 And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto the Levites.

7 Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon, according to

their service:

8 and four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of Merari,

according unto their service, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron

the priest.

9 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the

sanctuary belonged unto them; they bare it upon their shoulders.

10. And the princes offered for the dedication of the altar in the day

that it was anointed, even the princes offered their oblation before the

altar.

11 And Jehovah said unto Moses, They shall offer their oblation, each

prince on his day, for the dedication of the altar.

unto him.



Numbers
Chapter 8

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto Aaron, and say unto him, When thou lightest the lamps, the

seven lamps shall give light in front of the candlestick.

3 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof [so as to give light] in

front of the candlestick, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

4 And this was the work of the candlestick, beaten work of gold; unto the

base thereof, [and] unto the flowers thereof, it was beaten work: according

unto the pattern which Jehovah had showed Moses, so he made the

candlestick.

5. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

6 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them.

7 And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: sprinkle the water

of expiation upon them, and let them cause a razor to pass over all their

flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and cleanse themselves.

8 Then let them take a young bullock, and its meal-offering, fine flour

mingled with oil; and another young bullock shalt thou take for a

sin-offering.

9 And thou shalt present the Levites before the tent of meeting: and thou

shalt assemble the whole congregation of the children of Israel:

10 and thou shalt present the Levites before Jehovah. And the children of

Israel shall lay their hands upon the Levites:

11 and Aaron shall offer the Levites before Jehovah for a wave-offering,

on the behalf of the children of Israel, that it may be theirs to do the

service of Jehovah.

12 And the Levites shall lay their hands upon the heads of the bullocks:

and offer thou the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a

burnt-offering, unto Jehovah, to make atonement for the Levites.

13 And thou shalt set the Levites before Aaron, and before his sons, and

offer them for a wave-offering unto Jehovah.

14 Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the children of

Israel; and the Levites shall be mine.

15 And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of the tent

of meeting: and thou shalt cleanse them, and offer them for a

wave-offering.

16 For they are wholly given unto me from among the children of Israel;

instead of all that openeth the womb, even the first-born of all the

children of Israel, have I taken them unto me.

17 For all the first-born among the children of Israel are mine, both man

and beast: on the day that I smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt

I sanctified them for myself.

18 And I have taken the Levites instead of all the first-born among the

children of Israel.

19 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from

among the children of Israel, to do the service of the children of Israel

in the tent of meeting, and to make atonement for the children of Israel;

that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of

Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary.

20 Thus did Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children of

Israel, unto the Levites: according unto all that Jehovah commanded Moses

touching the Levites, so did the children of Israel unto them.

21 And the Levites purified themselves from sin, and they washed their

clothes: and Aaron offered them for a wave-offering before Jehovah; and

Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them.

22 And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tent of

meeting before Aaron, and before his sons: as Jehovah had commanded Moses

concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.

23 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

24 This is that which belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and five

years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service in the work

of the tent of meeting:

25 and from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon the

work, and shall serve no more,

26 but shall minister with their brethren in the tent of meeting, to keep

the charge, and shall do no service. Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites

touching their charges.



Numbers
Chapter 9

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first

month of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt,

saying,

2 Moreover let the children of Israel keep the passover in its appointed

season.

3 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in its

appointed season: according to all the statutes of it, and according to all

the ordinances thereof, shall ye keep it.

4 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should keep the

passover.

5 And they kept the passover in the first [month], on the fourteenth day

of the month, at even, in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that

Jehovah commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

6 And there were certain men, who were unclean by reason of the dead body

of a man, so that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they

came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

7 and those men said unto him, We are unclean by reason of the dead body

of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer the oblation of

Jehovah in its appointed season among the children of Israel?

8 And Moses said unto them, Stay ye, that I may hear what Jehovah will

command concerning you.

9 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of

your generations shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be on a

journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto Jehovah.

11 In the second month on the fourteenth day at even they shall keep it;

they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs:

12 they shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break a bone

thereof: according to all the statute of the passover they shall keep it.

13 But the man that is clean, and is not on a journey, and forbeareth to

keep the passover, that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he

offered not the oblation of Jehovah in its appointed season, that man shall

bear his sin.

14 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover

unto Jehovah; according to the statute of the passover, and according to

the ordinance thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one statute, both for

the sojourner, and for him that is born in the land.

15. And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the

tabernacle, even the tent of the testimony: and at even it was upon the

tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until morning.

16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it, and the appearance of fire by

night.

17 And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the Tent, then after

that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud

abode, there the children of Israel encamped.

18 At the commandment of Jehovah the children of Israel journeyed, and at

the commandment of Jehovah they encamped: as long as the cloud abode upon

the tabernacle they remained encamped.

19 And when the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle many days, then the

children of Israel kept the charge of Jehovah, and journeyed not.

20 And sometimes the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; then

according to the commandment of Jehovah they remained encamped, and

according to the commandment of Jehovah they journeyed.

21 And sometimes the cloud was from evening until morning; and when the

cloud was taken up in the morning, they journeyed: or [if it continued] by

day and by night, when the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

22 Whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud

tarried upon the tabernacle, abiding thereon, the children of Israel

remained encamped, and journeyed not; but when it was taken up, they

journeyed.

23 At the commandment of Jehovah they encamped, and at the commandment of

Jehovah they journeyed: they kept the charge of Jehovah, at the commandment

of Jehovah by Moses.



Numbers
Chapter 10

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of beaten work shalt thou make them:

and thou shalt use them for the calling of the congregation, and for the

journeying of the camps.

3 And when they shall blow them, all the congregation shall gather

themselves unto thee at the door of the tent of meeting.

4 And if they blow but one, then the princes, the heads of the thousands

of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.

5 And when ye blow an alarm, the camps that lie on the east side shall

take their journey.

6 And when ye blow an alarm the second time, the camps that lie on the

south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their

journeys.

7 But when the assembly is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye

shall not sound an alarm.

8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and they

shall be to you for a statute for ever throughout your generations.

9 And when ye go to war in your land against the adversary that

oppresseth you, then ye shall sound an alarm with the trumpets; and ye

shall be remembered before Jehovah your God, and ye shall be saved from

your enemies.

10 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your set feasts, and in the

beginnings of your months, ye shall blow the trumpets over your

burnt-offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace-offerings; and they

shall be to you for a memorial before your God: I am Jehovah your God.

11. And it came to pass in the second year, in the second month, on the

twentieth day of the month, that the cloud was taken up from over the

tabernacle of the testimony.

12 And the children of Israel set forward according to their journeys out

of the wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud abode in the wilderness of Paran.

13 And they first took their journey according to the commandment of

Jehovah by Moses.

14 And in the first [place] the standard of the camp of the children of

Judah set forward according to their hosts: and over his host was Nahshon

the son of Amminadab.

15 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar was

Nethanel the son of Zuar.

16 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab

the son of Helon.

17 And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the

sons of Merari, who bare the tabernacle, set forward.

18 And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their

hosts: and over his host was Elizur the son of Shedeur.

19 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel

the son of Zurishaddai.

20 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the

son of Deuel.

21 And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and [the

others] did set up the tabernacle against their coming.

22 And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward

according to their hosts: and over his host was Elishama the son of

Ammihud.

23 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh was

Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

24 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan

the son of Gideoni.

25 And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan, which was the

rearward of all the camps, set forward according to their hosts: and over

his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

26 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the

son of Ochran.

27 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira

the son of Enan.

28 Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their

hosts; and they set forward.

29. And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses'

father-in-law, We are journeying unto the place of which Jehovah said, I

will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good; for Jehovah

hath spoken good concerning Israel.

30 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own

land, and to my kindred.

31 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how

we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou shalt be to us instead of

eyes.

32 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what good

soever Jehovah shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee.

33 And they set forward from the mount of Jehovah three days' journey;

and the ark of the covenant of Jehovah went before them three days'

journey, to seek out a resting-place for them.

34 And the cloud of Jehovah was over them by day, when they set forward

from the camp.

35 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise

up, O Jehovah, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate

thee flee before thee.

36 And when it rested, he said, Return, O Jehovah, unto the ten thousands

of the thousands of Israel.



Numbers
Chapter 11

1. And the people were as murmurers, [speaking] evil in the ears of

Jehovah: and when Jehovah heard it, his anger was kindled; and the fire of

Jehovah burnt among them, and devoured in the uttermost part of the camp.

2 And the people cried unto Moses; and Moses prayed unto Jehovah, and the

fire abated.

3 And the name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire of

Jehovah burnt among them.

4. And the mixed multitude that was among them lusted exceedingly: and the

children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to

eat?

5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt for nought; the

cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic:

6 but now our soul is dried away; there is nothing at all save this manna

to look upon.

7 And the manna was like coriander seed, and the appearance thereof as

the appearance of bdellium.

8 The people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat

it in mortars, and boiled it in pots, and made cakes of it: and the taste

of it was as the taste of fresh oil.

9 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon

it.

10 And Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every

man at the door of his tent: and the anger of Jehovah was kindled greatly;

and Moses was displeased.

11 And Moses said unto Jehovah, Wherefore hast thou dealt ill with thy

servant? and wherefore have I not found favor in thy sight, that thou

layest the burden of all this people upon me?

12 Have I conceived all this people? have I brought them forth, that thou

shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing-father

carrieth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their

fathers?

13 Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep

unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.

14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy

for me.

15 And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I

have found favor in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness.

16. And Jehovah said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders

of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers

over them; and bring them unto the tent of meeting, that they may stand

there with thee.

17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the

Spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear

the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

18 And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to-morrow,

and ye shall eat flesh; for ye have wept in the ears of Jehovah, saying,

Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore

Jehovah will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten

days, nor twenty days,

20 but a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be

loathsome unto you; because that ye have rejected Jehovah who is among you,

and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?

21 And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand

footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a

whole month.

22 Shall flocks and herds be slain for them, to suffice them? or shall

all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?

23 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Is Jehovah's hand waxed short? now shalt

thou see whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

24. And Moses went out, and told the people the words of Jehovah: and he

gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about

the Tent.

25 And Jehovah came down in the cloud, and spake unto him, and took of

the Spirit that was upon him, and put it upon the seventy elders: and it

came to pass, that, when the Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but

they did so no more.

26 But there remained two men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad,

and the name of the other Medad: and the Spirit rested upon them; and they

were of them that were written, but had not gone out unto the Tent; and

they prophesied in the camp.

27 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad

do prophesy in the camp.

28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, one of his chosen

men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.

29 And Moses said unto him, Art thou jealous for my sake? would that all

Jehovah's people were prophets, that Jehovah would put his Spirit upon

them!

30 And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.

31. And there went forth a wind from Jehovah, and brought quails from the

sea, and let them fall by the camp, about a day's journey on this side, and

a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and about two

cubits above the face of the earth.

32 And the people rose up all that day, and all the night, and all the

next day, and gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten

homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the

camp.

33 While the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the

anger of Jehovah was kindled against the people, and Jehovah smote the

people with a very great plague.

34 And the name of that place was called Kibrothhattaavah, because there

they buried the people that lusted.

35 From Kibrothhattaavah the people journeyed unto Hazeroth; and they

abode at Hazeroth.



Numbers
Chapter 12

1. And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Cushite woman

whom he had married; for he had married a Cushite woman.

2 And they said, Hath Jehovah indeed spoken only with Moses? hath he not

spoken also with us? And Jehovah heard it.

3 Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men that were upon the

face of the earth.

4. And Jehovah spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam,

Come out ye three unto the tent of meeting. And they three came out.

5 And Jehovah came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood at the door of

the Tent, and called Aaron and Miriam; and they both came forth.

6 And he said, Hear now my words: if there be a prophet among you, I

Jehovah will make myself known unto him in a vision, I will speak with him

in a dream.

7 My servant Moses is not so; he is faithful in all my house:

8 with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark

speeches; and the form of Jehovah shall he behold: wherefore then were ye

not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses?

9 And the anger of Jehovah was kindled against them; and he departed.

10. And the cloud removed from over the Tent; and, behold, Miriam was

leprous, as [white as] snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she

was leprous.

11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Oh, my lord, lay not, I pray thee, sin upon

us, for that we have done foolishly, and for that we have sinned.

12 Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half

consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.

13 And Moses cried unto Jehovah, saying, Heal her, O God, I beseech thee.

14 And Jehovah said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face,

should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut up without the camp

seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again.

15 And Miriam was shut up without the camp seven days: and the people

journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

16 And afterward the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and encamped in the

wilderness of Paran.



Numbers
Chapter 13

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Send thou men, that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I give

unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send

a man, every one a prince among them.

3 And Moses sent them from the wilderness of Paran according to the

commandment of Jehovah: all of them men who were heads of the children of

Israel.

4 And these were their names: Of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of

Zaccur.

5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.

6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.

8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun.

9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.

10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.

11 Of the tribe of Joseph, [namely], of the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the

son of Susi.

12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.

13 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.

15 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.

16 These are the names of the men that Moses sent to spy out the land.

And Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun Joshua.

17 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them,

Get you up this way by the South, and go up into the hill-country:

18 and see the land, what it is; and the people that dwell therein,

whether they are strong or weak, whether they are few or many;

19 and what the land is that they dwell in, whether it is good or bad;

and what cities they are that they dwell in, whether in camps, or in

strongholds;

20 and what the land is, whether it is fat or lean, whether there is wood

therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the

land. Now the time was the time of the first-ripe grapes.

21. So they went up, and spied out the land from the wilderness of Zin

unto Rehob, to the entrance of Hamath.

22 And they went up by the South, and came unto Hebron; and Ahaiman,

Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were there. (Now Hebron was

built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)

23 And they came unto the valley of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a

branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it upon a staff between

two; [they brought] also of the pomegranates, and of the figs.

24 That place was called the valley of Eshcol, because of the cluster

which the children of Israel cut down from thence.

25 And they returned from spying out the land at the end of forty days.

26. And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the

congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to

Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and

showed them the fruit of the land.

27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou

sentest us; and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the

fruit of it.

28 Howbeit the people that dwell in the land are strong, and the cities

are fortified, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak

there.

29 Amalek dwelleth in the land of the South: and the Hittite, and the

Jebusite, and the Amorite, dwell in the hill-country; and the Canaanite

dwelleth by the sea, and along by the side of the Jordan.

30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at

once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.

31 But the men that went up with him said, We are not able to go up

against the people; for they are stronger than we.

32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had spied

out unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have

gone to spy it out, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and

all the people that we saw in it are men of great stature.

33 And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the

Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in

their sight.



Numbers
Chapter 14

1. And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the

people wept that night.

2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against

Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would that we had died in

the land of Egypt! or would that we had died in this wilderness!

3 And wherefore doth Jehovah bring us unto this land, to fall by the

sword? Our wives and our little ones will be a prey: were it not better for

us to return into Egypt?

4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return

into Egypt.

5. Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the

congregation of the children of Israel.

6 And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were of

them that spied out the land, rent their clothes:

7 and they spake unto all the congregation of the children of Israel,

saying, The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding

good land.

8 If Jehovah delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and

give it unto us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

9 Only rebel not against Jehovah, neither fear ye the people of the land;

for they are bread for us: their defence is removed from over them, and

Jehovah is with us: fear them not.

10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of

Jehovah appeared in the tent of meeting unto all the children of Israel.

11. And Jehovah said unto Moses, How long will this people despise me? and

how long will they not believe in me, for all the signs which I have

wrought among them?

12 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will

make of thee a nation greater and mightier than they.

13 And Moses said unto Jehovah, Then the Egyptians will hear it; for thou

broughtest up this people in thy might from among them;

14 and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard

that thou Jehovah art in the midst of this people; for thou Jehovah art

seen face to face, and thy cloud standeth over them, and thou goest before

them, in a pillar of cloud by day, and in a pillar of fire by night.

15 Now if thou shalt kill this people as one man, then the nations which

have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

16 Because Jehovah was not able to bring this people into the land which

he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the wilderness.

17 And now, I pray thee, let the power of the Lord be great, according as

thou hast spoken, saying,

18 Jehovah is slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness, forgiving

iniquity and transgression; and that will by no means clear [the guilty],

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and

upon the fourth generation.

19 Pardon, I pray thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the

greatness of thy lovingkindness, and according as thou hast forgiven this

people, from Egypt even until now.

20. And Jehovah said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

21 but in very deed, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with

the glory of Jehovah;

22 because all those men that have seen my glory, and my signs, which I

wrought in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have tempted me these ten

times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

23 surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers,

neither shall any of them that despised me see it:

24 but my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath

followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and

his seed shall possess it.

25 Now the Amalekite and the Canaanite dwell in the valley: to-morrow

turn ye, and get you into the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea.

26 And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

27 How long [shall I bear] with this evil congregation, that murmur

against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which

they murmur against me.

28 Say unto them, As I live, saith Jehovah, surely as ye have spoken in

mine ears, so will I do to you:

29 your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were

numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and

upward, that have murmured against me,

30 surely ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware that

I would make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua

the son of Nun.

31 But your little ones, that ye said should be a prey, them will I bring

in, and they shall know the land which ye have rejected.

32 But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.

33 And your children shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years,

and shall bear your whoredoms, until your dead bodies be consumed in the

wilderness.

34 After the number of the days in which ye spied out the land, even

forty days, for every day a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty

years, and ye shall know my alienation.

35 I, Jehovah, have spoken, surely this will I do unto all this evil

congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness

they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

36. And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned, and

made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up an evil

report against the land,

37 even those men that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by

the plague before Jehovah.

38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained

alive of those men that went to spy out the land.

39 And Moses told these words unto all the children of Israel: and the

people mourned greatly.

40 And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up to the top of

the mountain, saying, Lo, we are here, and will go up unto the place which

Jehovah hath promised: for we have sinned.

41 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of

Jehovah, seeing it shall not prosper?

42 Go not up, for Jehovah is not among you; that ye be not smitten down

before your enemies.

43 For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and ye shall

fall by the sword: because ye are turned back from following Jehovah,

therefore Jehovah will not be with you.

44 But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain: nevertheless

the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and Moses, departed not out of the

camp.

45 Then the Amalekite came down, and the Canaanite who dwelt in that

mountain, and smote them and beat them down, even unto Hormah.



Numbers
Chapter 15

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are come

into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,

3 and will make an offering by fire unto Jehovah, a burnt-offering, or a

sacrifice, to accomplish a vow, or as a freewill-offering, or in your set

feasts, to make a sweet savor unto Jehovah, of the herd, or of the flock;

4 then shall he that offereth his oblation offer unto Jehovah a

meal-offering of a tenth part [of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with the

fourth part of a hin of oil:

5 and wine for the drink-offering, the fourth part of a hin, shalt thou

prepare with the burnt-offering, or for the sacrifice, for each lamb.

6 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meal-offering two tenth parts

[of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with the third part of a hin of oil:

7 and for the drink-offering thou shalt offer the third part of a hin of

wine, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

8 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt-offering, or for a

sacrifice, to accomplish a vow, or for peace-offerings unto Jehovah;

9 then shall he offer with the bullock a meal-offering of three tenth

parts [of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with half a hin of oil:

10 and thou shalt offer for the drink-offering half a hin of wine, for an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

11 Thus shall it be done for each bullock, or for each ram, or for each

of the he-lambs, or of the kids.

12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every

one according to their number.

13 All that are home-born shall do these things after this manner, in

offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

14 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever may be among you

throughout your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a

sweet savor unto Jehovah; as ye do, so he shall do.

15 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you, and for the

stranger that sojourneth [with you], a statute for ever throughout your

generations: as ye are, so shall the sojourner be before Jehovah.

16 One law and one ordinance shall be for you, and for the stranger that

sojourneth with you.

17 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

18 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come

into the land whither I bring you,

19 then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall

offer up a heave-offering unto Jehovah.

20 Of the first of your dough ye shall offer up a cake for a

heave-offering: as the heave-offering of the threshing-floor, so shall ye

heave it.

21 Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto Jehovah a heave-offering

throughout your generations.

22. And when ye shall err, and not observe all these commandments, which

Jehovah hath spoken unto Moses,

23 even all that Jehovah hath commanded you by Moses, from the day that

Jehovah gave commandment, and onward throughout your generations;

24 then it shall be, if it be done unwittingly, without the knowledge of

the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock

for a burnt-offering, for a sweet savor unto Jehovah, with the

meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof, according to the

ordinance, and one he-goat for a sin-offering.

25 And the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the

children of Israel, and they shall be forgiven; for it was an error, and

they have brought their oblation, an offering made by fire unto Jehovah,

and their sin-offering before Jehovah, for their error:

26 and all the congregation of the children of Israel shall be forgiven,

and the stranger that sojourneth among them; for in respect of all the

people it was done unwittingly.

27 And if one person sin unwittingly, then he shall offer a she-goat a

year old for a sin-offering.

28 And the priest shall make atonement for the soul that erreth, when he

sinneth unwittingly, before Jehovah, to make atonement for him; and he

shall be forgiven.

29 Ye shall have one law for him that doeth aught unwittingly, for him

that is home-born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that

sojourneth among them.

30. But the soul that doeth aught with a high hand, whether he be

home-born or a sojourner, the same blasphemeth Jehovah; and that soul shall

be cut off from among his people.

31 Because he hath despised the word of Jehovah, and hath broken his

commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon

him.

32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a

man gathering sticks upon the sabbath day.

33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and

Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

34 And they put him in ward, because it had not been declared what should

be done to him.

35 And Jehovah said unto Moses, The man shall surely be put to death: all

the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.

36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him

to death with stones; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

37. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them

fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and

that they put upon the fringe of each border a cord of blue:

39 and it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and

remember all the commandments of Jehovah, and do them; and that ye follow

not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to play the

harlot;

40 that ye may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your

God.

41 I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be

your God: I am Jehovah your God.



Numbers
Chapter 16

1. Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with

Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of

Reuben, took [men]:

2 and they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel,

two hundred and fifty princes of the congregation, called to the assembly,

men of renown;

3 and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron,

and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation

are holy, every one of them, and Jehovah is among them: wherefore then lift

ye up yourselves above the assembly of Jehovah?

4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:

5 and he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, In the

morning Jehovah will show who are his, and who is holy, and will cause him

to come near unto him: even him whom he shall choose will he cause to come

near unto him.

6 This do: take you censers, Korah, and all his company;

7 and put fire in them, and put incense upon them before Jehovah

to-morrow: and it shall be that the man whom Jehovah doth choose, he [shall

be] holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.

8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear now, ye sons of Levi:

9 [seemeth it but] a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath

separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to

himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of Jehovah, and to stand

before the congregation to minister unto them;

10 and that he hath brought thee near, and all thy brethren the sons of

Levi with thee? and seek ye the priesthood also?

11 Therefore thou and all thy company are gathered together against

Jehovah: and Aaron, what is he that ye murmur against him?

12. And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; and they

said, We will not come up:

13 is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land flowing

with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but thou must needs make

thyself also a prince over us?

14 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land flowing with milk and

honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out

the eyes of these men? we will not come up.

15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto Jehovah, Respect not thou

their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one

of them.

16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before Jehovah,

thou, and they, and Aaron, to-morrow:

17 and take ye every man his censer, and put incense upon them, and bring

ye before Jehovah every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou

also, and Aaron, each his censer.

18 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid

incense thereon, and stood at the door of the tent of meeting with Moses

and Aaron.

19 And Korah assembled all the congregation against them unto the door of

the tent of meeting: and the glory of Jehovah appeared unto all the

congregation.

20 And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume

them in a moment.

22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the

spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all

the congregation?

23. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

24 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the

tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of

Israel followed him.

26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from

the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be

consumed in all their sins.

27 So they gat them up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram,

on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood at the door of

their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little ones.

28 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that Jehovah hath sent me to do

all these works; for [I have] not [done them] of mine own mind.

29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited

after the visitation of all men; then Jehovah hath not sent me.

30 But if Jehovah make a new thing, and the ground open its mouth, and

swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down alive

into Sheol; then ye shall understand that these men have despised Jehovah.

31 And it came to pass, as he made an end of speaking all these words,

that the ground clave asunder that was under them;

32 and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, and their

households, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their

goods.

33 So they, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into Sheol:

and the earth closed upon them, and they perished from among the assembly.

34 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them; for

they said, Lest the earth swallow us up.

35. And fire came forth from Jehovah, and devoured the two hundred and

fifty men that offered the incense.

36 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the

censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are

holy,

38 even the censers of these sinners against their own lives; and let

them be made beaten plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered

them before Jehovah; therefore they are holy; and they shall be a sign unto

the children of Israel.

39 And Eleazar the priest took the brazen censers, which they that were

burnt had offered; and they beat them out for a covering of the altar,

40 to be a memorial unto the children of Israel, to the end that no

stranger, that is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to burn incense

before Jehovah; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as Jehovah

spake unto him by Moses.

41. But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel

murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people

of Jehovah.

42 And it came to pass, when the congregation was assembled against Moses

and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tent of meeting: and,

behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of Jehovah appeared.

43 And Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tent of meeting.

44 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

45 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a

moment. And they fell upon their faces.

46 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take they censer, and put fire therein from

off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly unto the

congregation, and make atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from

Jehovah; the plague is begun.

47 And Aaron took as Moses spake, and ran into the midst of the assembly;

and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on the

incense, and made atonement for the people.

48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was

stayed.

49 Now they that died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven

hundred, besides them that died about the matter of Korah.

50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tent of meeting:

and the plague was stayed.

 



Numbers
Chapter 17

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of them rods, one for each

fathers' house, of all their princes according to their fathers' houses,

twelve rods: write thou every man's name upon his rod.

3 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi; for there shall

be one rod for each head of their fathers' houses.

4 And thou shalt lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony,

where I meet with you.

5 And it shall come to pass, that the rod of the man whom I shall choose

shall bud: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children

of Israel, which they murmur against you.

6 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel; and all their princes gave

him rods, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, even

twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.

7 And Moses laid up the rods before Jehovah in the tent of the testimony.

8. And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses went into the tent of the

testimony; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded,

and put forth buds, and produced blossoms, and bare ripe almonds.

9 And Moses brought out all the rods from before Jehovah unto all the

children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod.

10 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Put back the rod of Aaron before the

testimony, to be kept for a token against the children of rebellion; that

thou mayest make an end of their murmurings against me, that they die not.

11 Thus did Moses: as Jehovah commanded him, so did he.

12 And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, we

perish, we are undone, we are all undone.

13 Every one that cometh near, that cometh near unto the tabernacle of

Jehovah, dieth: shall we perish all of us?



Numbers
Chapter 18

1. And Jehovah said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy fathers' house

with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary; and thou and thy sons

with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.

2 And thy brethren also, the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father,

bring thou near with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister

unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee shall be before the tent of the

testimony.

3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the Tent: only

they shall not come nigh unto the vessels of the sanctuary and unto the

altar, that they die not, neither they, nor ye.

4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tent of

meeting, for all the service of the Tent: and a stranger shall not come

nigh unto you.

5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the

altar; that there be wrath no more upon the children of Israel.

6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the

children of Israel: to you they are a gift, given unto Jehovah, to do the

service of the tent of meeting.

7 And thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priesthood for

everything of the altar, and for that within the veil; and ye shall serve:

I give you the priesthood as a service of gift: and the stranger that

cometh nigh shall be put to death.

8. And Jehovah spake unto Aaron, And I, behold, I have given thee the

charge of my heave-offerings, even all the hallowed things of the children

of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to

thy sons, as a portion for ever.

9 This shall be thine of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire:

every oblation of theirs, even every meal-offering of theirs, and every

sin-offering of theirs, and every trespass-offering of theirs, which they

shall render unto me, shall be most holy for thee and for thy sons.

10 As the most holy things shalt thou eat thereof; every male shall eat

thereof: it shall be holy unto thee.

11 And this is thine: the heave-offering of their gift, even all the

wave-offerings of the children of Israel; I have given them unto thee, and

to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, as a portion for ever; every

one that is clean in thy house shall eat thereof.

12 All the best of the oil, and all the best of the vintage, and of the

grain, the first-fruits of them which they give unto Jehovah, to thee have

I given them.

13 The first-ripe fruits of all that is in their land, which they bring

unto Jehovah, shall be thine; every one that is clean in thy house shall

eat thereof.

14 Everything devoted in Israel shall be thine.

15 Everything that openeth the womb, of all flesh which they offer unto

Jehovah, both of man and beast shall be thine: nevertheless the first-born

of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt

thou redeem.

16 And those that are to be redeemed of them from a month old shalt thou

redeem, according to thine estimation, for the money of five shekels, after

the shekel of the sanctuary (the same is twenty gerahs).

17 But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the

firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they are holy: thou shalt

sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shalt burn their fat for an

offering made by fire, for a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

18 And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave-breast and as the

right thigh, it shall be thine.

19 All the heave-offerings of the holy things, which the children of

Israel offer unto Jehovah, have I given thee, and thy sons and thy

daughters with thee, as a portion for ever: it is a covenant of salt for

ever before Jehovah unto thee and to thy seed with thee.

20. And Jehovah said unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their

land, neither shalt thou have any portion among them: I am thy portion and

thine inheritance among the children of Israel.

21 And unto the children of Levi, behold, I have given all the tithe in

Israel for an inheritance, in return for their service which they serve,

even the service of the tent of meeting.

22 And henceforth the children of Israel shall not come nigh the tent of

meeting, lest they bear sin, and die.

23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tent of meeting, and they

shall bear their iniquity: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your

generations; and among the children of Israel they shall have no

inheritance.

24 For the tithe of the children of Israel, which they offer as a

heave-offering unto Jehovah, I have given to the Levites for an

inheritance: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel

they shall have no inheritance.

25 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

26 Moreover thou shalt speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye

take of the children of Israel the tithe which I have given you from them

for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up a heave-offering of it for

Jehovah, a tithe of the tithe.

27 And your heave-offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were

the grain of the threshing-floor, and as the fulness of the winepress.

28 Thus ye also shall offer a heave-offering unto Jehovah of all your

tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and thereof ye shall

give Jehovah's heave-offering to Aaron the priest.

29 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave-offering of Jehovah,

of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it.

30 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye heave the best thereof

from it, then it shall be reckoned unto the Levites as the increase of the

threshing-floor, and as the increase of the wine-press.

31 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households: for it is

your reward in return for your service in the tent of meeting.

32 And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it

the best thereof: and ye shall not profane the holy things of the children

of Israel, that ye die not.

 



Numbers
Chapter 19

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

2 This is the statute of the law which Jehovah hath commanded, saying,

Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer

without spot, wherein is no blemish, [and] upon which never came yoke.

3 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, and he shall bring her

forth without the camp, and one shall slay her before his face:

4 and Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and

sprinkle her blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times.

5 And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and her flesh,

and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:

6 and the priest shall take cedar-wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast

it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.

7 Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in

water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the priest shall be

unclean until the even.

8 And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his

flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.

9 And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and

lay them up without the camp in a clean place; and it shall be kept for the

congregation of the children of Israel for a water for impurity: it is a

sin-offering.

10 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes,

and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel,

and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever.

11. He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days:

12 the same shall purify himself therewith on the third day, and on the

seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day,

then the seventh day he shall not be clean.

13 Whosoever toucheth a dead person, the body of a man that hath died,

and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of Jehovah; and that

soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water for impurity was not

sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is yet upon him.

14 This is the law when a man dieth in a tent: every one that cometh into

the tent, and every one that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days.

15 And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, is

unclean.

16 And whosoever in the open field toucheth one that is slain with a

sword, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean

seven days.

17 And for the unclean they shall take of the ashes of the burning of the

sin-offering; and running water shall be put thereto in a vessel:

18 and a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip it in the water, and

sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the persons

that were there, and upon him that touched the bone, or the slain, or the

dead, or the grave:

19 and the clean person shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the third day,

and on the seventh day: and on the seventh day he shall purify him; and he

shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean at

even.

20 But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that

soul shall be cut off from the midst of the assembly, because he hath

defiled the sanctuary of Jehovah: the water for impurity hath not been

sprinkled upon him; he is unclean.

21 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them: and he that sprinkleth

the water for impurity shall wash his clothes, and he that toucheth the

water for impurity shall be unclean until even.

22 And whatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean; and the

soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.



Numbers
Chapter 20

1. And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, came into the

wilderness of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and

Miriam died there, and was buried there.

2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they assembled

themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

3 And the people strove with Moses, and spake, saying, Would that we had

died when our brethren died before Jehovah!

4 And why have ye brought the assembly of Jehovah into this wilderness,

that we should die there, we and our beasts?

5 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in

unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or

of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink.

6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the

door of the tent of meeting, and fell upon their faces: and the glory of

Jehovah appeared unto them.

7 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

8 Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, thou, and Aaron thy

brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes, that it give forth

its water; and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock; so

thou shalt give the congregation and their cattle drink.

9 And Moses took the rod from before Jehovah, as he commanded him.

10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock,

and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; shall we bring you forth water

out of this rock?

11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and smote the rock with his rod twice:

and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their

cattle.

12 And Jehovah said unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed not in me,

to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall

not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.

13 These are the waters of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove

with Jehovah, and he was sanctified in them.

14. And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom, Thus

saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen

us:

15 how our fathers went down into Egypt, and we dwelt in Egypt a long

time; and the Egyptians dealt ill with us, and our fathers:

16 and when we cried unto Jehovah, he heard our voice, and sent an angel,

and brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in Kadesh, a city in

the uttermost of thy border.

17 Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy land: we will not pass through

field or through vineyard, neither will we drink of the water of the wells:

we will go along the king's highway; we will not turn aside to the right

hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy border.

18 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass through me, lest I come

out with the sword against thee.

19 And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go up by the

highway; and if we drink of thy water, I and my cattle, then will I give

the price thereof: let me only, without [doing] anything [else], pass

through on my feet.

20 And he said, Thou shalt not pass through. And Edom came out against

him with much people, and with a strong hand.

21 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore

Israel turned away from him.

22. And they journeyed from Kadesh: and the children of Israel, even the

whole congregation, came unto mount Hor.

23 And Jehovah spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the border of

the land of Edom, saying,

24 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people; for he shall not enter into

the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye

rebelled against my word at the waters of Meribah.

25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor;

26 and strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son:

and Aaron shall be gathered [unto his people], and shall die there.

27 And Moses did as Jehovah commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in

the sight of all the congregation.

28 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar

his son; and Aaron died there on the top of the mount: and Moses and

Eleazar came down from the mount.

29 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they wept for

Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.



Numbers
Chapter 21

1. And the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the South, heard tell

that Israel came by the way of Atharim; and he fought against Israel, and

took some of them captive.

2 And Israel vowed a vow unto Jehovah, and said, If thou wilt indeed

deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.

3 And Jehovah hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the

Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and the name

of the place was called Hormah.

4. And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way to the Red Sea, to compass

the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because

of the way.

5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye

brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread,

and there is no water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.

6 And Jehovah sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the

people; and much people of Israel died.

7 And the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, because we have

spoken against Jehovah, and against thee; pray unto Jehovah, that he take

away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.

8 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon

a standard: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when

he seeth it, shall live.

9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and set it upon the standard: and it

came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked unto the

serpent of brass, he lived.

10. And the children of Israel journeyed, and encamped in Oboth.

11 And they journeyed from Oboth, and encamped at Iyeabarim, in the

wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising.

12 From thence they journeyed, and encamped in the valley of Zered.

13 From thence they journeyed, and encamped on the other side of the

Arnon, which is in the wilderness, that cometh out of the border of the

Amorites: for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the

Amorites.

14 Wherefore it is said in the book of the Wars of Jehovah, Vaheb in

Suphah, And the valleys of the Arnon,

15 And the slope of the valleys That inclineth toward the dwelling of Ar,

And leaneth upon the border of Moab.

16 And from thence [they journeyed] to Beer: that is the well whereof

Jehovah said unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them

water.

17 Then sang Israel this song: Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it:

18 The well, which the princes digged, Which the nobles of the people

delved, With the sceptre, [and] with their staves. And from the wilderness

[they journeyed] to Mattanah;

19 and from Mattanah to Nahaliel; And from Nahaliel to Bamoth;

20 and from Bamoth to the valley that is in the field of Moab, to the top

of Pisgah, which looketh down upon the desert.

21. And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,

22 Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn aside into field, or

into vineyard; we will not drink of the water of the wells: we will go by

the king's highway, until we have passed thy border.

23 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but

Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into

the wilderness, and came to Jahaz; and he fought against Israel.

24 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his

land from the Arnon unto the Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon; for

the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

25 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities

of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the towns thereof.

26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had

fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his

hand, even unto the Arnon.

27 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come ye to Heshbon; Let the

city of Sihon be built and established:

28 For a fire is gone out of Heshbon, A flame from the city of Sihon: It

hath devoured Ar of Moab, The lords of the high places of the Arnon.

29 Woe to thee, Moab! Thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: He hath given

his sons as fugitives, And his daughters into captivity, Unto Sihon king of

the Amorites.

30 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, And we have

laid waste even unto Nophah, Which [reacheth] unto Medeba.

31 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.

32 And Moses sent to spy out Jazer; and they took the towns thereof, and

drove out the Amorites that were there.

33 And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the king of

Bashan went out against them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.

34 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him

into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him

as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.

35 So they smote him, and his sons and all his people, until there was

none left him remaining: and they possessed his land.



Numbers
Chapter 22

1. And the children of Israel journeyed, and encamped in the plains of

Moab beyond the Jordan at Jericho.

2 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the

Amorites.

3 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and

Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel.

4 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now will this multitude lick

up all that is round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field.

And Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time.

5 And he sent messengers unto Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor, which is

by the River, to the land of the children of his people, to call him,

saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover

the face of the earth, and they abide over against me.

6 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too

mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and

that I may drive them out of the land; for I know that he whom thou

blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.

7 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the

rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake

unto him the words of Balak.

8 And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word

again, as Jehovah shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with

Balaam.

9 And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee?

10 And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath

sent unto me, [saying],

11 Behold, the people that is come out of Egypt, it covereth the face of

the earth: now, come curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to fight

against them, and shall drive them out.

12 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not

curse the people; for they are blessed.

13 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak,

Get you into your land; for Jehovah refuseth to give me leave to go with

you.

14 And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and said,

Balaam refuseth to come with us.

15. And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honorable than they.

16 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of

Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me:

17 for I will promote thee unto very great honor, and whatsoever thou

sayest unto me I will do: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this

people.

18 And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak

would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the

word of Jehovah my God, to do less or more.

19 Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may

know what Jehovah will speak unto me more.

20 And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men are

come to call thee, rise up, go with them; but only the word which I speak

unto thee, that shalt thou do.

21 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with

the princes of Moab.

22. And God's anger was kindled because he went; and the angel of Jehovah

placed himself in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding

upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

23 And the ass saw the angel of Jehovah standing in the way, with his

sword drawn in his hand; and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went

into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

24 Then the angel of Jehovah stood in a narrow path between the

vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

25 And the ass saw the angel of Jehovah, and she thrust herself unto the

wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

26 And the angel of Jehovah went further, and stood in a narrow place,

where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

27 And the ass saw the angel of Jehovah, and she lay down under Balaam:

and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with his staff.

28 And Jehovah opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam,

What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me, I would

there were a sword in my hand, for now I had killed thee.

30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast

ridden all thy life long unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee?

and he said, Nay.

31 Then Jehovah opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of

Jehovah standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand; and he bowed

his head, and fell on his face.

32 And the angel of Jehovah said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten

thine ass these three times? behold, I am come forth for an adversary,

because thy way is perverse before me:

33 and the ass saw me, and turned aside before me these three times:

unless she had turned aside from me, surely now I had even slain thee, and

saved her alive.

34 And Balaam said unto the angel of Jehovah, I have sinned; for I knew

not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it

displease thee, I will get me back again.

35 And the angel of Jehovah said unto Balaam, Go with the men; but only

the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam

went with the princes of Balak.

36. And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet him

unto the City of Moab, which is on the border of the Arnon, which is in the

utmost part of the border.

37 And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee to call

thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote

thee to honor?

38 And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any

power at all to speak anything? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that

shall I speak.

39 And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kiriath-huzoth.

40 And Balak sacrificed oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to the

princes that were with him.

41 And it came to pass in the morning, that Balak took Balaam, and

brought him up into the high places of Baal; and he saw from thence the

utmost part of the people.



Numbers
Chapter 23

1. And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me

here seven bullocks and seven rams.

2 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on

every altar a bullock and a ram.

3 And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt-offering, and I will go:

peradventure Jehovah will come to meet me; and whatsoever he showeth me I

will tell thee. And he went to a bare height.

4 And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared the seven

altars, and I have offered up a bullock and a ram on every altar.

5 And Jehovah put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return unto Balak,

and thus thou shalt speak.

6 And he returned unto him, and, lo, he was standing by his

burnt-offering, he, and all the princes of Moab.

7 And he took up his parable, and said, From Aram hath Balak brought me,

The king of Moab from the mountains of the East: Come, curse me Jacob, And

come, defy Israel.

8 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? And how shall I defy, whom

Jehovah hath not defied?

9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, And from the hills I behold

him: lo, it is a people that dwelleth alone, And shall not be reckoned

among the nations.

10 Who can count the dust of Jacob, Or number the fourth part of Israel?

Let me die the death of the righteous, And let my last end be like his!

11 And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee

to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether.

12 And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which

Jehovah putteth in my mouth?

13. And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another

place, from whence thou mayest see them; thou shalt see but the utmost part

of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence.

14 And he took him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and

built seven altars, and offered up a bullock and a ram on every altar.

15 And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt-offering, while I meet

[Jehovah] yonder.

16 And Jehovah met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Return

unto Balak, and thus shalt thou speak.

17 And he came to him, and, lo, he was standing by his burnt-offering,

and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath

Jehovah spoken?

18 And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear;

Hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:

19 God is not a man, that he should lie, Neither the son of man, that he

should repent: Hath he said, and will he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and

will he not make it good?

20 Behold, I have received [commandment] to bless: And he hath blessed,

and I cannot reverse it.

21 He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob; Neither hath he seen

perverseness in Israel: Jehovah his God is with him, And the shout of a

king is among them.

22 God bringeth them forth out of Egypt; He hath as it were the strength

of the wild-ox.

23 Surely there is no enchantment with Jacob; Neither is there any

divination with Israel: Now shalt it be said of Jacob and of Israel, What

hath God wrought!

24 Behold, the people riseth up as a lioness, And as a lion doth he lift

himself up: He shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, And drink the

blood of the slain.

25 And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them

at all.

26 But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All

that Jehovah speaketh, that I must do?

27 And Balak said unto Balaam, Come now, I will take thee unto another

place; peradventure it will please God that thou mayest curse me them from

thence.

28 And Balak took Balaam unto the top of Peor, that looketh down upon the

desert.

29 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me

here seven bullocks and seven rams.

30 And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered up a bullock and a ram

on every altar.

Chapter 24

1. And when Balaam saw that it pleased Jehovah to bless Israel, he went

not, as at the other times, to meet with enchantments, but he set his face

toward the wilderness.

2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel dwelling according to

their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon him.

3 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor saith, And

the man whose eye was closed saith;

4 He saith, who heareth the words of God, Who seeth the vision of the

Almighty, Falling down, and having his eyes open:

5 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, Thy tabernacles, O Israel!

6 As valleys are they spread forth, As gardens by the river-side, As

lign-aloes which Jehovah hath planted, As cedar-trees beside the waters.

7 Water shall flow from his buckets, And his seed shall be in many

waters, And his king shall be higher than Agag, And his kingdom shall be

exalted.

8 God bringeth him forth out of Egypt; He hath as it were the strength of

the wild-ox: He shall eat up the nations his adversaries, And shall break

their bones in pieces, And smite [them] through with his arrows.

9 He couched, he lay down as a lion, And as a lioness; who shall rouse

him up? Blessed be every one that blesseth thee, And cursed be every one

that curseth thee.

10. And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands

together; and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies,

and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed them these three times.

11 Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote thee unto

great honor; but, lo, Jehovah hath kept thee back from honor.

12 And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers that

thou sentest unto me, saying,

13 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go

beyond the word of Jehovah, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; what

Jehovah speaketh, that will I speak?

14 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come, [and] I will advertise

thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.

15. And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor saith,

And the man whose eye was closed saith;

16 He saith, who heareth the words of God, And knoweth the knowledge of

the Most High, Who seeth the vision of the Almighty, Falling down, and

having his eyes open:

17 I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not nigh: There shall come

forth a star out of Jacob, And a sceptre shall rise out of Israel, And

shall smite through the corners of Moab, And break down all the sons of

tumult.

18 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession, [who

were] his enemies; While Israel doeth valiantly.

19 And out of Jacob shall one have dominion, And shall destroy the

remnant from the city.

20 And he looked on Amalek, and took up his parable, and said, Amalek was

the first of the nations; But his latter end shall come to destruction.

21 And he looked on the Kenite, and took up his parable, and said, Strong

is thy dwelling-place, And thy nest is set in the rock.

22 Nevertheless Kain shall be wasted, Until Asshur shall carry thee away

captive.

23 And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God

doeth this?

24 But ships [shall come] from the coast of Kittim, And they shall

afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber; And he also shall come to

destruction.

25 And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place; and Balak also

went his way.

 



Numbers
Chapter 25

1. And Israel abode in Shittim; and the people began to play the harlot

with the daughters of Moab:

2 for they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the

people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

3 And Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor: and the anger of Jehovah was

kindled against Israel.

4 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Take all the chiefs of the people, and

hang them up unto Jehovah before the sun, that the fierce anger of Jehovah

may turn away from Israel.

5 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men

that have joined themselves unto Baal-peor.

6. And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his

brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all

the congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the

door of the tent of meeting.

7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw

it, he rose up from the midst of the congregation, and took a spear in his

hand;

8 and he went after the man of Israel into the pavilion, and thrust both

of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body. So the

plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

9 And those that died by the plague were twenty and four thousand.

10 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned

my wrath away from the children of Israel, in that he was jealous with my

jealousy among them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in my

jealousy.

12 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

13 and it shall be unto him, and to his seed after him, the covenant of

an everlasting priesthood; because he was jealous for his God, and made

atonement for the children of Israel.

14 Now the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was slain with

the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a fathers'

house among the Simeonites.

15 And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the

daughter of Zur; he was head of the people of a fathers' house in Midian.

16. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

17 Vex the Midianites, and smite them;

18 for they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in

the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the prince

of Midian, their sister, who was slain on the day of the plague in the

matter of Peor.



Numbers
Chapter 26

1. And it came to pass after the plague, that Jehovah spake unto Moses and

unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,

2 Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from

twenty years old and upward, by their fathers' houses, all that are able to

go forth to war in Israel.

3 And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains of Moab

by the Jordan at Jericho, saying,

4 [Take the sum of the people], from twenty years old and upward; as

Jehovah commanded Moses and the children of Israel, that came forth out of

the land of Egypt.

5. Reuben, the first-born of Israel; the sons of Reuben: [of] Hanoch, the

family of the Hanochites; of Pallu, the family of the Palluites;

of them were forty and three thousand and seven hundred and thirty.

8 And the sons of Pallu: Eliab.

9 And the sons of Eliab: Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. These are that

Dathan and Abiram, who were called of the congregation, who strove against

Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against

Jehovah,

10 and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up together with

Korah, when that company died; what time the fire devoured two hundred and

fifty men, and they became a sign.

11 Notwithstanding, the sons of Korah died not.

12 The sons of Simeon after their families: of Nemuel, the family of the

Nemuelites; of Jamin, the family of the Jaminites; of Jachin, the family of

33 And Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, but daughters: and the

and Tirzah.

34 These are the families of Manasseh; and they that were numbered of

them were fifty and two thousand and seven hundred.

35 These are the sons of Ephraim after their families: of Shuthelah, the

Tahan, the family of the Tahanites.

36 And these are the sons of Shuthelah: of Eran, the family of the

37 These are the families of the sons of Ephraim according to those that

were numbered of them were forty and five thousand and six hundred.

42 These are the sons of Dan after their families: of Shuham, the family

they that were numbered of them were forty and five thousand and four

hundred.

51 These are they that were numbered of the children of Israel, six

hundred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty.

52. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

53 Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to

the number of names.

54 To the more thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to the fewer

thou shalt give the less inheritance: to every one according to those that

were numbered of him shall his inheritance be given.

55 Notwithstanding, the land shall be divided by lot: according to the

names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.

56 According to the lot shall their inheritance be divided between the

more and the fewer.

57. And these are they that were numbered of the Levites after their

families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites; of Kohath, the family

59 And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, who

was born to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram Aaron and Moses, and

Miriam their sister.

60 And unto Aaron were born Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.

61 And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before

Jehovah.

62 And they that were numbered of them were twenty and three thousand,

every male from a month old and upward: for they were not numbered among

the children of Israel, because there was no inheritance given them among

the children of Israel.

63. These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who

numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at

Jericho.

64 But among these there was not a man of them that were numbered by

Moses and Aaron the priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the

wilderness of Sinai.

65 For Jehovah had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness.

And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and

Joshua the son of Nun.

 



Numbers
Chapter 27

1. Then drew near the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son

of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of

Manasseh the son of Joseph; and these are the names of his daughters:

Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.

2 And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before

the princes and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of meeting,

saying,

3 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not among the company of

them that gathered themselves together against Jehovah in the company of

Korah: but he died in his own sin; and he had no sons.

4 Why should the name of our father be taken away from among his family,

because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our

father.

5 And Moses brought their cause before Jehovah.

6 And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a

possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt

cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.

8 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die,

and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his

daughter.

9 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his

brethren.

10 And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto

his father's brethren.

11 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance

unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess

it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute [and] ordinance,

as Jehovah commanded Moses.

12. And Jehovah said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mountain of Abarim,

and behold the land which I have given unto the children of Israel.

13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy

people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered;

14 because ye rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin, in the

strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the waters before their eyes.

(These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

15. And Moses spake unto Jehovah, saying,

16 Let Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over

the congregation,

17 who may go out before them, and who may come in before them, and who

may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the congregation of

Jehovah be not as sheep which have no shepherd.

18 And Jehovah said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in

whom is the Spirit, and lay thy hand upon him;

19 and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the

congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

20 And thou shalt put of thine honor upon him, that all the congregation

of the children of Israel may obey.

21 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for

him by the judgment of the Urim before Jehovah: at his word shall they go

out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of

Israel with him, even all the congregation.

22 And Moses did as Jehovah commanded him; and he took Joshua, and set

him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:

23 and he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as Jehovah

spake by Moses.



Numbers
Chapter 28

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My oblation, my food

for my offerings made by fire, of a sweet savor unto me, shall ye observe

to offer unto me in their due season.

3 And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by fire which

ye shall offer unto Jehovah: he-lambs a year old without blemish, two day

by day, for a continual burnt-offering.

4 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt

thou offer at even;

5 and the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering,

mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil.

6 It is a continual burnt-offering, which was ordained in mount Sinai for

a sweet savor, an offering made by fire unto Jehovah.

7 And the drink-offering thereof shall be the fourth part of a hin for

the one lamb: in the holy place shalt thou pour out a drink-offering of

strong drink unto Jehovah.

8 And the other lamb shalt thou offer at even: as the meal-offering of

the morning, and as the drink-offering thereof, thou shalt offer it, an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah.

9. And on the sabbath day two he-lambs a year old without blemish, and two

tenth parts [of an ephah] of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with

oil, and the drink-offering thereof:

10 this is the burnt-offering of every sabbath, besides the continual

burnt-offering, and the drink- offering thereof.

11 And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt-offering

unto Jehovah: two young bullocks, and one ram, seven he-lambs a year old

without blemish;

12 and three tenth parts [of an ephah] of fine flour for a meal-offering,

mingled with oil, for each bullock; and two tenth parts of fine flour for a

meal-offering, mingled with oil, for the one ram;

13 and a tenth part of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering

unto every lamb; for a burnt-offering of a sweet savor, an offering made by

fire unto Jehovah.

14 And their drink-offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bullock,

and the third part of a hin for the ram, and the fourth part of a hin for a

lamb: this is the burnt-offering of every month throughout the months of

the year.

15 And one he-goat for a sin-offering unto Jehovah; it shall be offered

besides the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.

16. And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is

Jehovah's passover.

17 And on the fifteenth day of this month shall be a feast: seven days

shall unleavened bread be eaten.

18 In the first day shall be a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile

work;

19 but ye shall offer an offering made by fire, a burnt-offering unto

Jehovah: two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven he-lambs a year old;

they shall be unto you without blemish;

20 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil: three tenth

parts shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth parts for the ram;

21 a tenth part shalt thou offer for every lamb of the seven lambs;

22 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you.

23 Ye shall offer these besides the burnt-offering of the morning, which

is for a continual burnt-offering.

24 After this manner ye shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of

the offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Jehovah: it shall be

offered besides the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering

thereof.

25 And on the seventh day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do

no servile work.

26 Also in the day of the first-fruits, when ye offer a new meal-offering

unto Jehovah in your [feast of] weeks, ye shall have a holy convocation; ye

shall do no servile work;

27 but ye shall offer a burnt-offering for a sweet savor unto Jehovah:

two young bullocks, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old;

28 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth

parts for each bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram,

29 a tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs;

30 one he-goat, to make atonement for you.

31 Besides the continual burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof,

ye shall offer them (they shall be unto you without blemish), and their

drink-offerings.

Numbers 29

1. And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have

a holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing of

trumpets unto you.

2 And ye shall offer a burnt-offering for a sweet savor unto Jehovah: one

young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old without blemish;

3 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts

for the bullock, two tenth parts for the ram,

4 and one tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs;

5 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you;

6 besides the burnt-offering of the new moon, and the meal-offering

thereof, and the continual burnt-offering and the meal-offering thereof,

and their drink-offerings, according unto their ordinance, for a sweet

savor, an offering made by fire unto Jehovah.

7 And on the tenth day of this seventh month ye shall have a holy

convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall do no manner of

work;

8 but ye shall offer a burnt-offering unto Jehovah for a sweet savor: one

young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old; they shall be unto you

without blemish;

9 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts

for the bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram,

10 a tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs:

11 one he-goat for a sin-offering; besides the sin-offering of atonement,

and the continual burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, and their

drink-offerings.

12. And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have a holy

convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto

Jehovah seven days:

13 and ye shall offer a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a

sweet savor unto Jehovah; thirteen young bullocks, two rams, fourteen

he-lambs a year old; they shall be without blemish;

14 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth

parts for every bullock of the thirteen bullocks, two tenth parts for each

ram of the two rams,

15 and a tenth part for every lamb of the fourteen lambs;

16 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, besides the continual

burnt-offering, the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof.

17 And on the second day [ye shall offer] twelve young bullocks, two

rams, fourteen he-lambs a year old without blemish;

18 and their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks,

for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

ordinance;

19 and one he-goat for a sin-offering; besides the continual

burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, and their drink-offerings.

20 And on the third day eleven bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a

year old without blemish;

21 and their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks,

for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering

thereof.

23 And on the fourth day ten bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a year

old without blemish;

24 their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks, for

the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

ordinance;

25 and one he-goat for a sin-offering; besides the continual

burnt-offering, the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof.

26 And on the fifth day nine bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a year

old without blemish;

27 and their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks,

for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

ordinance;

28 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, besides the continual

burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering

thereof.

29 And on the sixth day eight bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a

year old without blemish;

30 and their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks,

for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

ordinance;

31 and one he-goat for a sin-offering; besides the continual

burnt-offering, the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offerings thereof.

32 And on the seventh day seven bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a

year old without blemish;

33 and their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullocks,

for the rams, and for the lambs, according to their number, after the

ordinance;

34 and one he-goat for a sin-offering; besides the continual

burnt-offering, the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof.

35 On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do no

servile work;

36 but ye shall offer a burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a

sweet savor unto Jehovah: one bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old

without blemish;

37 their meal-offering and their drink-offerings for the bullock, for the

ram, and for the lambs, shall be according to their number, after the

ordinance:

38 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, besides the continual

burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering

thereof.

39 These ye shall offer unto Jehovah in your set feasts, besides your

vows, and your freewill-offerings, for your burnt-offerings, and for your

meal-offerings, and for your drink-offerings, and for your peace-offerings.

40 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that Jehovah

commanded Moses.



Numbers
Chapter 30

1. And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel,

saying, This is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded.

2 When a man voweth a vow unto Jehovah, or sweareth an oath to bind his

soul with a bond, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all

that proceedeth out of his mouth.

3. Also when a woman voweth a vow unto Jehovah, and bindeth herself by a

bond, being in her father's house, in her youth,

4 and her father heareth her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound

her soul, and her father holdeth his peace at her; then all her vows shall

stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.

5 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth, none of her

vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and

Jehovah will forgive her, because her father disallowed her.

6 And if she be [married] to a husband, while her vows are upon her, or

the rash utterance of her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul,

7 and her husband hear it, and hold his peace at her in the day that he

heareth it; then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she hath

bound her soul shall stand.

8 But if her husband disallow her in the day that he heareth it, then he

shall make void her vow which is upon her, and the rash utterance of her

lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul: and Jehovah will forgive her.

9 But the vow of a widow, or of her that is divorced, [even] everything

wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand against her.

10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond

with an oath,

11 and her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed

her not; then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound

her soul shall stand.

12 But if her husband made them null and void in the day that he heard

them, then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or

concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made

them void; and Jehovah will forgive her.

13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may

establish it, or her husband may make it void.

14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day,

then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he

hath established them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he

heard them.

15 But if he shall make them null and void after that he hath heard them,

then he shall bear her iniquity.

16 These are the statutes, which Jehovah commanded Moses, between a man

and his wife, between a father and his daughter, being in her youth, in her

father's house.



Numbers
Chapter 31

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou

be gathered unto thy people.

3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm ye men from among you for

the war, that they may go against Midian, to execute Jehovah's vengeance on

Midian.

4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall

ye send to the war.

5 So there were delivered, out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of

every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

6 And Moses sent them, a thousand of every tribe, to the war, them and

Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the vessels of the

sanctuary and the trumpets for the alarm in his hand.

7. And they warred against Midian, as Jehovah commanded Moses; and they

slew every male.

8 And they slew the kings of Midian with the rest of their slain: Evi,

and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian: Balaam

also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

9 And the children of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their

little ones; and all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their

goods, they took for a prey.

10 And all their cities in the places wherein they dwelt, and all their

encampments, they burnt with fire.

11 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of man and of

beast.

12 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto

Moses, and unto Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the

children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by the

Jordan at Jericho.

13. And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the

congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, the captains of

thousands and the captains of hundreds, who came from the service of the

war.

15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of

Balaam, to commit trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor, and so

the plague was among the congregation of Jehovah.

17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every

woman that hath known man by lying with him.

18 But all the women-children, that have not known man by lying with him,

keep alive for yourselves.

19 And encamp ye without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any

person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify yourselves on the

third day and on the seventh day, ye and your captives.

20 And as to every garment, and all that is made of skin, and all work of

goats' [hair], and all things made of wood, ye shall purify yourselves.

21 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war that went to the

battle, This is the statute of the law which Jehovah hath commanded Moses:

22 howbeit the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and

the lead,

23 everything that may abide the fire, ye shall make to go through the

fire, and it shall be clean; nevertheless it shall be purified with the

water for impurity: and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make to go

through the water.

24 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be

clean; and afterward ye shall come into the camp.

25. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

26 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast,

thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the

congregation;

27 and divide the prey into two parts: between the men skilled in war,

that went out to battle, and all the congregation.

28 And levy a tribute unto Jehovah of the men of war that went out to

battle: one soul of five hundred, [both] of the persons, and of the oxen,

and of the asses, and of the flocks:

29 take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for

Jehovah's heave-offering.

30 And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one drawn out of

every fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the asses, and of the flocks,

[even] of all the cattle, and give them unto the Levites, that keep the

charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah.

31 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as Jehovah commanded Moses.

32 Now the prey, over and above the booty which the men of war took, was

six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,

33 and threescore and twelve thousand oxen,

34 and threescore and one thousand asses,

35 and thirty and two thousand persons in all, of the women that had not

known man by lying with him.

36 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was

in number three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and

five hundred sheep:

37 and Jehovah's tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and

fifteen.

38 And the oxen were thirty and six thousand; of which Jehovah's tribute

was threescore and twelve.

39 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which

Jehovah's tribute was threescore and one.

40 And the persons were sixteen thousand; of whom Jehovah's tribute was

thirty and two persons.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was Jehovah's heave-offering, unto

Eleazar the priest, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

42 And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided off from the

men that warred

43 (now the congregation's half was three hundred thousand and thirty

thousand, seven thousand and five hundred sheep,

44 and thirty and six thousand oxen,

45 and thirty thousand and five hundred asses,

46 and sixteen thousand persons),

47 even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one drawn out of

every fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, that

kept the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

48. And the officers that were over the thousands of the host, the

captains of thousands, and the captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses;

49 and they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men

of war that are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.

50 And we have brought Jehovah's oblation, what every man hath gotten, of

jewels of gold, ankle-chains, and bracelets, signet-rings, ear-rings, and

armlets, to make atonement for our souls before Jehovah.

51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all

wrought jewels.

52 And all the gold of the heave-offering that they offered up to

Jehovah, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was

sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.

53 ([For] the men of war had taken booty, every man for himself.)

54 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of

thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tent of meeting, for a

memorial for the children of Israel before Jehovah.



Numbers
Chapter 32

1. Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great

multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of

Gilead, that, behold, the place was a place for cattle;

2 the children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spake unto

Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the congregation,

saying,

3 Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh,

and Sebam, and Nebo, and Beon,

4 the land which Jehovah smote before the congregation of Israel, is a

land for cattle; and thy servants have cattle.

5 And they said, If we have found favor in thy sight, let this land be

given unto thy servants for a possession; bring us not over the Jordan.

6 And Moses said unto the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben,

Shall your brethren go to the war, and shall ye sit here?

7 And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of Israel from

going over into the land which Jehovah hath given them?

8 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the

land.

9 For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they

discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not go

into the land which Jehovah had given them.

10 And Jehovah's anger was kindled in that day, and he sware, saying,

11 Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years

old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac,

and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me:

12 save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of

Nun; because they have wholly followed Jehovah.

13 And Jehovah's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them

wander to and fro in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation,

that had done evil in the sight of Jehovah, was consumed.

14 And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an increase of

sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of Jehovah toward Israel.

15 For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave them in

the wilderness; and ye will destroy all this people.

16. And they came near unto him, and said, We will build sheepfolds here

for our cattle, and cities for our little ones:

17 but we ourselves will be ready armed to go before the children of

Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones

shall dwell in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

18 We will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have

inherited every man his inheritance.

19 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan, and

forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side of the Jordan

eastward.

20 And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this thing, if ye will arm

yourselves to go before Jehovah to the war,

21 and every armed man of you will pass over the Jordan before Jehovah,

until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,

22 and the land is subdued before Jehovah; then afterward ye shall

return, and be guiltless towards Jehovah, and towards Israel; and this land

shall be unto you for a possession before Jehovah.

23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against Jehovah; and

be sure your sin will find you out.

24 Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your sheep; and

do that which hath proceeded out of your mouth.

25 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spake unto Moses,

saying, Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.

26 Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be

there in the cities of Gilead;

27 but thy servants will pass over, every man that is armed for war,

before Jehovah to battle, as my lord saith.

28. So Moses gave charge concerning them to Eleazar the priest, and to

Joshua the son of Nun, and to the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the

tribes of the children of Israel.

29 And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the children of

Reuben will pass with you over the Jordan, every man that is armed to

battle, before Jehovah, and the land shall be subdued before you; then ye

shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession:

30 but if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have

possessions among you in the land of Canaan.

31 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered, saying,

As Jehovah hath said unto thy servants, so will we do.

32 We will pass over armed before Jehovah into the land of Canaan, and

the possession of our inheritance [shall remain] with us beyond the Jordan.

33 And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to the

children of Reuben, and unto the half-tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph,

the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of

Bashan, the land, according to the cities thereof with [their] borders,

even the cities of the land round about.

34 And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,

35 and Atrothshophan, and Jazer, and Jogbehah,

36 and Beth-nimrah, and Beth-haran: fortified cities, and folds for

sheep.

37 And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kiriathaim,

38 and Nebo, and Baal-meon, (their names being changed,) and Sibmah: and

they gave other names unto the cities which they builded.

39 And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead, and

took it, and dispossessed the Amorites that were therein.

40 And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he dwelt

therein.

41 And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the towns thereof, and

called them Havvoth-jair.

42 And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and called

it Nobah, after his own name.

Chapter 33

1. These are the journeys of the children of Israel, when they went forth

out of the land of Egypt by their hosts under the hand of Moses and Aaron.

2 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the

commandment of Jehovah: and these are their journeys according to their

goings out.

3 And they journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth

day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of

Israel went out with a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians,

4 while the Egyptians were burying all their first-born, whom Jehovah had

smitten among them: upon their gods also Jehovah executed judgments.

5 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses, and encamped in

Succoth.

6 And they journeyed from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, which is in the

edge of the wilderness.

7 And they journeyed from Etham, and turned back unto Pihahiroth, which

is before Baal-zephon: and they encamped before Migdol.

8 And they journeyed from before Hahiroth, and passed through the midst

of the sea into the wilderness: and they went three days' journey in the

wilderness of Etham, and encamped in Marah.

9 And they journeyed from Marah, and came unto Elim: and in Elim were

twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees; and they

encamped there.

10 And they journeyed from Elim, and encamped by the Red Sea.

11 And they journeyed from the Red Sea, and encamped in the wilderness of

Sin.

12 And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, and encamped in

Dophkah.

13 And they journeyed from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush.

14 And they journeyed from Alush, and encamped in Rephidim, where was no

water for the people to drink.

15 And they journeyed from Rephidim, and encamped in the wilderness of

Sinai.

16 And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sinai, and encamped in

Kibroth-hattaavah.

17 And they journeyed from Kibroth-hattaavah, and encamped in Hazeroth.

18 And they journeyed from Hazeroth, and encamped in Rithmah.

19 And they journeyed from Rithmah, and encamped in Rimmon-perez.

20 And they journeyed from Rimmon-perez, and encamped in Libnah.

21 And they journeyed from Libnah, and encamped in Rissah.

22 And they journeyed from Rissah, and encamped in Kehelathah.

23 And they journeyed from Kehelathah, and encamped in mount Shepher.

24 And they journeyed from mount Shepher, and encamped in Haradah.

25 And they journeyed from Haradah, and encamped in Makheloth.

26 And they journeyed from Makheloth, and encamped in Tahath.

27 And they journeyed from Tahath, and encamped in Terah.

28 And they journeyed from Terah, and encamped in Mithkah.

29 And they journeyed from Mithkah, and encamped in Hashmonah.

30 And they journeyed from Hashmonah, and encamped in Moseroth.

31 And they journeyed from Moseroth, and encamped in Bene-jaakan.

32 And they journeyed from Bene-jaakan, and encamped in Hor-haggidgad.

33 And they journeyed from Hor-haggidgad, and encamped in Jotbathah.

34 And they journeyed from Jotbathah, and encamped in Abronah.

35 And they journeyed from Abronah, and encamped in Ezion-geber.

36 And they journeyed from Ezion-geber, and encamped in the wilderness of

Zin (the same is Kadesh).

37 And they journeyed from Kadesh, and encamped in mount Hor, in the edge

of the land of Edom.

38 And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of

Jehovah, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel

were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, on the first day of

the month.

39 And Aaron was a hundred and twenty and three years old when he died in

mount Hor.

40 And the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the South in the

land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children of Israel.

41 And they journeyed from mount Hor, and encamped in Zalmonah.

42 And they journeyed from Zalmonah, and encamped in Punon.

43 And they journeyed from Punon, and encamped in Oboth.

44 And they journeyed from Oboth, and encamped in Iye-abarim, in the

border of Moab.

45 And they journeyed from Iyim, and encamped in Dibon-gad.

46 And they journeyed from Dibon-gad, and encamped in Almon-diblathaim.

47 And they journeyed from Almon-diblathaim, and encamped in the

mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.

48 And they journeyed from the mountains of Abarim, and encamped in the

plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.

49 And they encamped by the Jordan, from Beth-jeshimoth even unto

Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab.

50. And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at

Jericho, saying,

51 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye pass

over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

52 then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before

you, and destroy all their figured [stones], and destroy all their molten

images, and demolish all their high places:

53 and ye shall take possession of the land, and dwell therein; for unto

you have I given the land to possess it.

54 And ye shall inherit the land by lot according to your families; to

the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt

give the less inheritance: wheresoever the lot falleth to any man, that

shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers shall ye inherit.

55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before

you, then shall those that ye let remain of them be as pricks in your eyes,

and as thorns in your sides, and they shall vex you in the land wherein ye

dwell.

56 And it shall come to pass, that, as I thought to do unto them, so will

I do unto you.

 



Numbers
Chapter 34

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into

the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall unto you for an

inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to the borders thereof),

3 then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by

the side of Edom, and your south border shall be from the end of the Salt

Sea eastward;

4 and your border shall turn about southward of the ascent of Akrabbim,

and pass along to Zin; and the goings out thereof shall be southward of

Kadesh-barnea; and it shall go forth to Hazar-addar, and pass along to

Azmon;

5 and the border shall turn about from Azmon unto the brook of Egypt, and

the goings out thereof shall be at the sea.

6 And for the western border, ye shall have the great sea and the border

[thereof]: this shall be your west border.

7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall mark

out for you mount Hor;

8 from mount Hor ye shall mark out unto the entrance of Hamath; and the

goings out of the border shall be at Zedad;

9 and the border shall go forth to Ziphron, and the goings out thereof

shall be at Hazar-enan: this shall be your north border.

10 And ye shall mark out your east border from Hazar-enan to Shepham;

11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side

of Ain; and the border shall go down, and shall reach unto the side of the

sea of Chinnereth eastward;

12 and the border shall go down to the Jordan, and the goings out thereof

shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land according to the borders

thereof round about.

13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is the land

which ye shall inherit by lot, which Jehovah hath commanded to give unto

the nine tribes, and to the half-tribe;

14 for the tribe of the children of Reuben according to their fathers'

houses, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to their fathers'

houses, have received, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received, their

inheritance:

15 the two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance

beyond the Jordan at Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising.

16. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

17 These are the names of the men that shall divide the land unto you for

inheritance: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

18 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land for

inheritance.

19 And these are the names of the men: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the

son of Jephunneh.

20 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of

Ammihud.

21 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.

22 And of the tribe of the children of Dan a prince, Bukki the son of

Jogli.

23 Of the children of Joseph: of the tribe of the children of Manasseh a

prince, Hanniel the son of Ephod.

24 And of the tribe of the children of Ephraim a prince, Kemuel the son

of Shiphtan.

25 And of the tribe of the children of Zebulun a prince, Elizaphan the

son of Parnach.

26 And of the tribe of the children of Issachar a prince, Paltiel the son

of Azzan.

27 And of the tribe of the children of Asher a prince, Ahihud the son of

Shelomi.

28 And of the tribe of the children of Naphtali a prince, Pedahel the son

of Ammihud.

29 These are they whom Jehovah commanded to divide the inheritance unto

the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.

 



Numbers
Chapter 35

1. And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at

Jericho, saying,

2 Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the

inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and suburbs for the

cities round about them shall ye give unto the Levites.

3 And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and their suburbs shall be

for their cattle, and for their substance, and for all their beasts.

4 And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the Levites,

shall be from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round

about.

5 And ye shall measure without the city for the east side two thousand

cubits, and for the south side two thousand cubits, and for the west side

two thousand cubits, and for the north side two thousand cubits, the city

being in the midst. This shall be to them the suburbs of the cities.

6 And the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites, they shall be the

six cities of refuge, which ye shall give for the manslayer to flee unto:

and besides them ye shall give forty and two cities.

7 All the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be forty and

eight cities; them [shall ye give] with their suburbs.

8 And concerning the cities which ye shall give of the possession of the

children of Israel, from the many ye shall take many; and from the few ye

shall take few: every one according to his inheritance which he inheriteth

shall give of his cities unto the Levites.

9. And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying,

10 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye pass

over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

11 then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you, that

the manslayer that killeth any person unwittingly may flee thither.

12 And the cities shall be unto you for refuge from the avenger, that the

manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation for judgment.

13 And the cities which ye shall give shall be for you six cities of

refuge.

14 Ye shall give three cities beyond the Jordan, and three cities shall

ye give in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge.

15 For the children of Israel, and for the stranger and for the sojourner

among them, shall these six cities be for refuge; that every one that

killeth any person unwittingly may flee thither.

16 But if he smote him with an instrument of iron, so that he died, he is

a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.

17 And if he smote him with a stone in the hand, whereby a man may die,

and he died, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death.

18 Or if he smote him with a weapon of wood in the hand, whereby a man

may die, and he died, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to

death.

19 The avenger of blood shall himself put the murderer to death: when he

meeteth him, he shall put him to death.

20 And if he thrust him of hatred, or hurled at him, lying in wait, so

that he died,

21 or in enmity smote him with his hand, so that he died; he that smote

him shall surely be put to death; he is a murderer: the avenger of blood

shall put the murderer to death, when he meeteth him.

22 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or hurled upon him

anything without lying in wait,

23 or with any stone, whereby a man may die, seeing him not, and cast it

upon him, so that he died, and he was not his enemy, neither sought his

harm;

24 then the congregation shall judge between the smiter and the avenger

of blood according to these ordinances;

25 and the congregation shall deliver the manslayer out of the hand of

the avenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to his city of

refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall dwell therein until the death of

the high priest, who was anointed with the holy oil.

26 But if the manslayer shall at any time go beyond the border of his

city of refuge, whither he fleeth,

27 and the avenger of blood find him without the border of his city of

refuge, and the avenger of blood slay the manslayer; he shall not be guilty

of blood,

28 because he should have remained in his city of refuge until the death

of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the manslayer

shall return into the land of his possession.

29 And these things shall be for a statute [and] ordinance unto you

throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

30 Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be slain at the mouth of

witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person that he

die.

31 Moreover ye shall take no ransom for the life of a murderer, that is

guilty of death; but he shall surely be put to death.

32 And ye shall take no ransom for him that is fled to his city of

refuge, that he may come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the

priest.

33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood, it

polluteth the land; and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood

that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.

34 And thou shalt not defile the land which ye inhabit, in the midst of

which I dwell: for I, Jehovah, dwell in the midst of the children of

Israel.



Numbers
Chapter 36

1. And the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the family of the children of

Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons

of Joseph, came near, and spake before Moses, and before the princes, the

heads of the fathers' [houses] of the children of Israel:

2 and they said, Jehovah commanded my lord to give the land for

inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord was commanded by

Jehovah to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his

daughters.

3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the [other] tribes of the

children of Israel, then will their inheritance be taken away from the

inheritance of our fathers, and will be added to the inheritance of the

tribe whereunto they shall belong: so will it be taken away from the lot of

our inheritance.

4 And when the jubilee of the children of Israel shall be, then will

their inheritance be added unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they

shall belong: so will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance

of the tribe of our fathers.

5. And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of

Jehovah, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph speaketh right.

6 This is the thing which Jehovah doth command concerning the daughters

of Zelophehad, saying, Let them be married to whom they think best; only

into the family of the tribe of their father shall they be married.

7 So shall no inheritance of the children of Israel remove from tribe to

tribe; for the children of Israel shall cleave every one to the inheritance

of the tribe of his fathers.

8 And every daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any tribe of the

children of Israel, shall be wife unto one of the family of the tribe of

her father, that the children of Israel may possess every man the

inheritance of his fathers.

9 So shall no inheritance remove from one tribe to another tribe; for the

tribes of the children of Israel shall cleave every one to his own

inheritance.

10 Even as Jehovah commanded Moses, so did the daughters of Zelophehad:

11 for Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of

Zelophedad, were married unto their father's brothers' sons.

12 They were married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of

Joseph; and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their

father.

13 These are the commandments and the ordinances which Jehovah commanded

by Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at

Jericho.
