Book 04 Numbers 001:001 Yahweh spoke to 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 had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 001:002 "Take a census 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, one by one; 001:003 from twenty years old and upward, all who are able to go out to war in Israel. You and Aaron shall number them by their divisions. 001:004 With you there shall be a man of every tribe; everyone head of his fathers' house. 001:005 These are the names of the men who shall stand with you: Of Reuben: Elizur the son of Shedeur. 001:006 Of Simeon: Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 001:007 Of Judah: Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 001:008 Of Issachar: Nethanel the son of Zuar. 001:009 Of Zebulun: Eliab the son of Helon. 001:010 Of the children of Joseph: Of Ephraim: Elishama the son of Ammihud.

they were the heads of the thousands of Israel. 001:017 Moses and Aaron took these men who are mentioned by name. 001:018 They assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month; and they declared their ancestry by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, one by one. 001:019 As Yahweh commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai. 001:020 The children of Reuben, Israel's firstborn, their generations, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, one by one, every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war; 001:021 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Reuben, were forty-six thousand five hundred. 001:022 Of the children of Simeon, their generations, by their families, by their fathers' houses, those who were numbered of it, according to the number of the names, one by one, every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war; 001:023 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty-nine thousand three hundred. 001:024 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:025 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Gad, were forty-five thousand six hundred fifty. 001:026 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:027 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Judah, were sixty-four thousand six hundred. 001:028 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:029 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Issachar, were fifty-four thousand four hundred. 001:030 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:031 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty-seven thousand four hundred. 001:032 Of the children of Joseph, 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:033 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand five hundred. 001:034 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:035 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Manasseh, were thirty-two thousand two hundred. 001:036 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 who were able to go out to war; 001:037 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Benjamin, were thirty-five thousand four hundred. 001:038 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 who were able to go forth to war; 001:039 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Dan, were sixty-two thousand seven hundred. 001:040 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 who were able to go forth to war; 001:041 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Asher, were forty-one thousand five hundred. 001:042 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 who were able to go forth to war; 001:043 those who were numbered of them, of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty-three thousand four hundred. 001:044 These are those who were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: they were each one for his fathers' house. 001:045 So all those who were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers' houses, from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war in Israel; 001:046 even all those who were numbered were six hundred three thousand five hundred fifty. 001:047 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. 001:048 For Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 001:049 "Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, neither shall you take a census of them among the children of Israel; 001:050 but appoint the Levites over the Tabernacle of the Testimony, and over all its furnishings, and over all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle, and all its furnishings; and they shall take care of it, and shall encamp around it. 001:051 When the tabernacle is to move, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites shall set it up. The stranger who comes near shall be put to death. 001:052 The children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, according to their divisions. 001:053 But the Levites shall encamp around the Tabernacle of the Testimony, that there may be no wrath on the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be responsible for the Tabernacle of the Testimony." 001:054 Thus the children of Israel did. According to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so they did. 002:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 002:002 "The children of Israel shall encamp every man by his own standard, with the banners of their fathers' houses: at a distance from the tent of meeting shall they encamp around it." 002:003 Those who encamp on the east side toward the sunrise shall be of the standard of the camp of Judah, according to their divisions: and the prince of the children of Judah shall be Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 002:004 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were seventy-four thousand six hundred. 002:005 Those who encamp next to him shall be the tribe of Issachar: and the prince of the children of Issachar shall be Nethanel the son of Zuar. 002:006 His division, and those who were numbered of it, were fifty-four thousand four hundred. 002:007 The tribe of Zebulun: and the prince of the children of Zebulun shall be Eliab the son of Helon. 002:008 His division, and those who were numbered of it, were fifty-seven thousand four hundred. 002:009 All who were numbered of the camp of Judah were one hundred eighty-six thousand four hundred, according to their divisions. They shall set out first. 002:010 "On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to their divisions. The prince of the children of Reuben shall be Elizur the son of Shedeur. 002:011 His division, and those who were numbered of it, were forty-six thousand five hundred. 002:012 "Those who encamp next to him shall be the tribe of Simeon. The prince of the children of Simeon shall be Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 002:013 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were fifty-nine thousand three hundred. 002:014 "The tribe of Gad: and the prince of the children of Gad shall be Eliasaph the son of Reuel. 002:015 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were forty-five thousand six hundred fifty. 002:016 "All who were numbered of the camp of Reuben were one hundred fifty-one thousand four hundred fifty, according to their armies. They shall set out second. 002:017 "Then the tent of meeting shall set out, with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camps. As they encamp, so shall they set out, every man in his place, by their standards. 002:018 "On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their divisions: and the prince of the children of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud. 002:019 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were forty thousand five hundred. 002:020 "Next to him shall be the tribe of Manasseh: and the prince of the children of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 002:021 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were thirty-two thousand two hundred. 002:022 "The tribe of Benjamin: and the prince of the children of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni. 002:023 His army, and those who were numbered of them, were thirty-five thousand four hundred. 002:024 "All who were numbered of the camp of Ephraim were one hundred eight thousand one hundred, according to their divisions. They shall set out third. 002:025 "On the north side shall be the standard of the camp of Dan according to their divisions: and the prince of the children of Dan shall be Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 002:026 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were sixty-two thousand seven hundred. 002:027 "Those who encamp next to him shall be the tribe of Asher: and the prince of the children of Asher shall be Pagiel the son of Ochran. 002:028 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were forty-one thousand and five hundred. 002:029 "The tribe of Naphtali: and the prince of the children of Naphtali shall be Ahira the son of Enan. 002:030 His division, and those who were numbered of them, were fifty-three thousand four hundred. 002:031 "All who were numbered of the camp of Dan were one hundred fifty-seven thousand six hundred. They shall set out last by their standards." 002:032 These are those who were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers' houses. All who were numbered of the camps according to their armies were six hundred three thousand five hundred fifty. 002:033 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as Yahweh commanded Moses. 002:034 Thus the children of Israel did. According to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so they encamped by their standards, and so they set out, everyone by their families, according to their fathers' houses. 003:001 Now this is the history of the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that Yahweh spoke with Moses in Mount Sinai. 003:002 These are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 003:003 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests who were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office. 003:004 Nadab and Abihu died before Yahweh, when they offered strange fire before Yahweh, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children. Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the presence of Aaron their father. 003:005 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 003:006 "Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister to him. 003:007 They shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the Tent of Meeting, to do the service of the tabernacle. 003:008 They shall keep all the furnishings of the Tent of Meeting, and the obligations of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle. 003:009 You shall give the Levites to Aaron and to his sons. They are wholly given to him on the behalf of the children of Israel. 003:010 You shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall keep their priesthood. The stranger who comes near shall be put to death." 003:011 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 003:012 "Behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn who open the womb among the children of Israel; and the Levites shall be mine: 003:013 for all the firstborn are mine. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I made holy to me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and animal. They shall be mine. I am Yahweh." 003:014 Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying, 003:015 "Number the children of Levi by their fathers' houses, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shall you number." 003:016 Moses numbered them according to the word of Yahweh, as he was commanded. 003:017 These were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari. 003:018 These are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families: Libni and Shimei. 003:019 The sons of Kohath by their families: Amram, and Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. 003:020 The sons of Merari by their families: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their fathers' houses. 003:021 Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimeites: these are the families of the Gershonites. 003:022 Those who were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even those who were numbered of them were seven thousand five hundred. 003:023 The families of the Gershonites shall encamp behind the tabernacle westward. 003:024 The prince of the fathers' house of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael. 003:025 The charge of the sons of Gershon in the Tent of Meeting shall be the tabernacle, and the tent, its covering, and the screen for the door of the Tent of Meeting, 003:026 and the hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the court, which is by the tabernacle, and around the altar, and its cords for all of its service. 003:027 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. 003:028 According to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, there were eight thousand six hundred, keeping the charge of the sanctuary. 003:029 The families of the sons of Kohath shall encamp on the south side of the tabernacle. 003:030 The prince of the fathers' house of the families of the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel. 003:031 Their charge shall be the ark, the table, the lamp stand, the altars, the vessels of the sanctuary with which they minister, and the screen, and all its service. 003:032 Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be prince of the princes of the Levites, with the oversight of those who keep the charge of the sanctuary. 003:033 Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the Mushites. These are the families of Merari. 003:034 Those who were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand two hundred. 003:035 The prince of the fathers' house of the families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail. They shall encamp on the north side of the tabernacle. 003:036 The appointed charge of the sons of Merari shall be the tabernacle's boards, its bars, its pillars, its sockets, all its instruments, all its service, 003:037 the pillars of the court around it, their sockets, their pins, and their cords. 003:038 Those who encamp before the tabernacle eastward, in front of the Tent of Meeting toward the sunrise, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel. The stranger who comes near shall be put to death. 003:039 All who were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of Yahweh, by their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty-two thousand. 003:040 Yahweh said to Moses, "Number all the firstborn males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names. 003:041 You shall take the Levites for me (I am Yahweh) instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel; and the livestock of the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the livestock of the children of Israel." 003:042 Moses numbered, as Yahweh commanded him, all the firstborn among the children of Israel. 003:043 All the firstborn males according to the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those who were numbered of them, were twenty-two thousand two hundred seventy-three. 003:044 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 003:045 "Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel, and the livestock of the Levites instead of their livestock; and the Levites shall be mine. I am Yahweh. 003:046 For the redemption of the two hundred seventy-three of the firstborn of the children of Israel, who exceed the number of the Levites, 003:047 you shall take five shekels apiece for each one; after the shekel of the sanctuary you shall take them (the shekel is twenty gerahs): 003:048 and you shall give the money, with which the remainder of them is redeemed, to Aaron and to his sons." 003:049 Moses took the redemption money from those who exceeded the number of those who were redeemed by the Levites; 003:050 from the firstborn of the children of Israel he took the money, one thousand three hundred sixty-five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary: 003:051 and Moses gave the redemption money to Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of Yahweh, as Yahweh commanded Moses. 004:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 004:002 "Take a census of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their families, by their fathers' houses, 004:003 from thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all who enter into the service, to do the work in the Tent of Meeting. 004:004 This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the Tent of Meeting, the most holy things. 004:005 When the camp moves 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, 004:006 and shall put a covering of sealskin on it, and shall spread over it a cloth all of blue, and shall put in its poles. 004:007 On the table of show bread they shall spread a blue cloth, and put on it the dishes, the spoons, the bowls, and the cups with which to pour out; and the continual bread shall be on it. 004:008 They shall spread on them a scarlet cloth, and cover the same with a covering of sealskin, and shall put in its poles. 004:009 They shall take a blue cloth, and cover the lampstand of the light, and its lamps, and its snuffers, and its snuff dishes, and all its oil vessels, with which they minister to it. 004:010 They shall put it and all its vessels within a covering of sealskin, and shall put it on the frame. 004:011 On the golden altar they shall spread a blue cloth, and cover it with a covering of sealskin, and shall put in its poles. 004:012 They shall take all the vessels of ministry, with which they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a blue cloth, and cover them with a covering of sealskin, and shall put them on the frame. 004:013 They shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth on it. 004:014 They shall put on it all its vessels, with which they minister about it, the fire pans, the flesh hooks, the shovels, and the basins; all the vessels of the altar; and they shall spread on it a covering of sealskin, and put in its poles. 004:015 "When Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary, and all the furniture of the sanctuary, as the camp moves forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to carry 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. 004:016 "The charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be the oil for the light, the sweet incense, the continual meal offering, and the anointing oil, the charge of all the tabernacle, and of all that is in it, the sanctuary, and its furnishings." 004:017 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 004:018 "Don't cut off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites; 004:019 but thus do to them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach to the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them everyone to his service and to his burden; 004:020 but they shall not go in to see the sanctuary even for a moment, lest they die." 004:021 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 004:022 "Take a census of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' houses, by their families; 004:023 from thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shall you number them; all who enter in to wait on the service, to do the work in the Tent of Meeting. 004:024 This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, in serving and in bearing burdens: 004:025 they shall carry the curtains of the tabernacle, and the Tent of Meeting, its covering, and the covering of sealskin that is above on it, and the screen for the door of the Tent of Meeting, 004:026 and the hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the gate of the court, which is by the tabernacle and around the altar, and their cords, and all the instruments of their service, and whatever shall be done with them. Therein shall they serve. 004:027 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 you shall appoint to them in charge all their burden. 004:028 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. 004:029 "As for the sons of Merari, you shall number them by their families, by their fathers' houses; 004:030 from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old shall you number them, everyone who enters on the service, to do the work of the Tent of Meeting. 004:031 This is the charge of their burden, according to all their service in the Tent of Meeting: the tabernacle's boards, its bars, its pillars, its sockets, 004:032 and the pillars of the court around it, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords, with all their instruments, and with all their service: and by name you shall appoint the instruments of the charge of their burden. 004:033 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." 004:034 Moses and Aaron and the princes of the congregation numbered the sons of the Kohathites by their families, and by their fathers' houses, 004:035 from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old, everyone who entered into the service, for work in the Tent of Meeting. 004:036 Those who were numbered of them by their families were two thousand seven hundred fifty. 004:037 These are those who were numbered of the families of the Kohathites, all who served in the Tent of Meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of Yahweh by Moses. 004:038 Those who were numbered of the sons of Gershon, their families, and by their fathers' houses, 004:039 from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old, everyone who entered into the service, for work in the Tent of Meeting, 004:040 even those who were numbered of them, by their families, by their fathers' houses, were two thousand six hundred thirty. 004:041 These are those who were numbered of the families of the sons of Gershon, all who served in the Tent of Meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of Yahweh. 004:042 Those who were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, by their families, by their fathers' houses, 004:043 from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old, everyone who entered into the service, for work in the Tent of Meeting, 004:044 even those who were numbered of them by their families, were three thousand two hundred. 004:045 These are those who were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of Yahweh by Moses. 004:046 All those who were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron and the princes of Israel numbered, by their families, and by their fathers' houses, 004:047 from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old, everyone who entered in to do the work of service, and the work of bearing burdens in the Tent of Meeting, 004:048 even those who were numbered of them, were eight thousand five hundred eighty. 004:049 According to the commandment of Yahweh they were numbered by Moses, everyone according to his service, and according to his burden. Thus were they numbered by him, as Yahweh commanded Moses. 005:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 005:002 "Command the children of Israel that they put out of the camp every leper, and everyone who has an issue, and whoever is unclean by the dead. 005:003 Both male and female shall you put out, outside of the camp shall you put them; that they not defile their camp, in the midst of which I dwell." 005:004 The children of Israel did so, and put them out outside of the camp; as Yahweh spoke to Moses, so did the children of Israel. 005:005 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 005:006 "Speak to the children of Israel: When a man or woman commits any sin that men commit, so as to trespass against Yahweh, and that soul is guilty; 005:007 then he shall confess his sin which he has done, and he shall make restitution for his guilt in full, and add to it the fifth part of it, and give it to him in respect of whom he has been guilty. 005:008 But if the man has no kinsman to whom restitution may be made for the guilt, the restitution for guilt which is made to Yahweh shall be the priest's; besides the ram of the atonement, by which atonement shall be made for him. 005:009 Every heave offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they present to the priest, shall be his. 005:010 Every man's holy things shall be his: whatever any man gives the priest, it shall be his." 005:011 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 005:012 "Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them: If any man's wife goes astray, and is unfaithful to him, 005:013 and a man lies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband, and is kept close, and she is defiled, and there is no witness against her, and she isn't taken in the act; 005:014 and the spirit of jealousy comes on him, and he is jealous of his wife, and she is defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy comes on him, and he is jealous of his wife, and she isn't defiled: 005:015 then the man shall bring his wife to the priest, and shall bring her offering for her: the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal. He shall pour no oil on it, nor put frankincense on it, for it is a meal offering of jealousy, a meal offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to memory. 005:016 The priest shall bring her near, and set her before Yahweh; 005:017 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. 005:018 The priest shall set the woman before Yahweh, 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. The priest shall have in his hand the water of bitterness that brings a curse. 005:019 The priest shall cause her to swear, and shall tell the woman, 'If no man has lain with you, and if you haven't gone aside to uncleanness, being under your husband, be free from this water of bitterness that brings a curse. 005:020 But if you have gone astray, being under your husband, and if you are defiled, and some man has lain with you besides your husband:' 005:021 then the priest shall cause the woman to swear with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall tell the woman, 'Yahweh make you a curse and an oath among your people, when Yahweh allows your thigh to fall away, and your body to swell; 005:022 and this water that brings a curse will go into your bowels, and make your body swell, and your thigh fall away.' The woman shall say, 'Amen, Amen.' 005:023 "The priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out into the water of bitterness. 005:024 He shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causes the curse; and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her and become bitter. 005:025 The priest shall take the meal offering of jealousy out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the meal offering before Yahweh, and bring it to the altar. 005:026 The priest shall take a handful of the meal offering, as the memorial of it, and burn it on the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water. 005:027 When he has made her drink the water, then it shall happen, if she is defiled, and has committed a trespass against her husband, that the water that causes the curse will enter into her and become bitter, and her body will swell, and her thigh will fall away: and the woman will be a curse among her people. 005:028 If the woman isn't defiled, but is clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed. 005:029 "This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her husband, goes astray, and is defiled; 005:030 or when the spirit of jealousy comes on a man, and he is jealous of his wife; then he shall set the woman before Yahweh, and the priest shall execute on her all this law. 005:031 The man shall be free from iniquity, and that woman shall bear her iniquity." 006:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 006:002 "Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them: When either man or woman shall make a special vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to separate himself to Yahweh, 006:003 he shall separate himself from wine and strong drink. He shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of fermented drink, neither shall he drink any juice of grapes, nor eat fresh grapes or dried. 006:004 All the days of his separation he shall eat nothing that is made of the grapevine, from the seeds even to the skins. 006:005 "All the days of his vow of separation there shall no razor come on his head, until the days are fulfilled, in which he separates himself to Yahweh. He shall be holy. He shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow long. 006:006 "All the days that he separates himself to Yahweh he shall not go near a dead body. 006:007 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 to God is on his head. 006:008 All the days of his separation he is holy to Yahweh. 006:009 "If any man dies very suddenly beside him, and he defiles the head of his separation; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing. On the seventh day he shall shave it. 006:010 On the eighth day he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest, to the door of the Tent of Meeting. 006:011 The priest shall offer one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make atonement for him, because he sinned by reason of the dead, and shall make his head holy that same day. 006:012 He shall separate to Yahweh the days of his separation, and shall bring a male lamb a year old for a trespass offering; but the former days shall be void, because his separation was defiled. 006:013 "This is the law of the Nazirite: when the days of his separation are fulfilled, he shall be brought to the door of the Tent of Meeting, 006:014 and he shall offer his offering to Yahweh, one male 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, 006:015 and a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and their meal offering, and their drink offerings. 006:016 The priest shall present them before Yahweh, and shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering. 006:017 He shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings to Yahweh, with the basket of unleavened bread. The priest shall offer also its meal offering, and its drink offering. 006:018 The Nazirite 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. 006:019 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 on the hands of the Nazirite, after he has shaved the head of his separation; 006:020 and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before Yahweh. This is holy for the priest, together with the breast that is waved and the thigh that is offered. After that the Nazirite may drink wine. 006:021 "This is the law of the Nazirite who vows, and of his offering to Yahweh for his separation, besides that which he is able to get. According to his vow which he vows, so he must do after the law of his separation." 006:022 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 006:023 "Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, 'This is how you shall bless the children of Israel.' You shall tell them, 006:024 'Yahweh bless you, and keep you. 006:025 Yahweh make his face to shine on you, and be gracious to you. 006:026 Yahweh lift up his face toward you, and give you peace.' 006:027 "So they shall put my name on the children of Israel; and I will bless them." 007:001 It happened on the day that Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, and had anointed it and sanctified it, with all its furniture, and the altar with all its vessels, and had anointed and sanctified them; 007:002 that the princes of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, offered. These were the princes of the tribes. These are they who were over those who were numbered: 007:003 and they brought their offering before Yahweh, 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. 007:004 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 007:005 "Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the service of the Tent of Meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, to every man according to his service." 007:006 Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them to the Levites. 007:007 He gave two wagons and four oxen to the sons of Gershon, according to their service: 007:008 and he gave four wagons and eight oxen to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 007:009 But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary belonged to them; they carried it on their shoulders. 007:010 The princes gave offerings for the dedication of the altar in the day that it was anointed, even the princes gave their offerings before the altar. 007:011 Yahweh said to Moses, "They shall offer their offering, each prince on his day, for the dedication of the altar." 007:012 He who offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah, 007:013 and his offering was: one silver platter, the weight of which was one hundred thirty shekels, one silver bowl of seventy shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary; both of them full of fine flour mixed with oil for a meal offering; 007:014 one golden ladle of ten shekels, full of incense; 007:015 one young bull, one ram, one male lamb a year old, for a burnt offering; 007:016 one male goat for a sin offering; 007:017 and for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats, and five male lambs a year old. This was the offering of Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 007:018 On the second day Nethanel the son of Zuar, prince of Issachar, gave his offering. 007:019 He offered for his offering: one silver platter, the weight of which was one hundred thirty shekels, one silver bowl of seventy shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary; both of them full of fine flour mixed with oil for a meal offering; 007:020 one golden ladle of ten shekels, full of incense; 007:021 one young bull, one ram, one male lamb a year old, for a burnt offering; 007:022 one male goat for a sin offering; 007:023 and for the sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five male goats, five male lambs a year old.

This was the dedication of the altar, after it was anointed. 007:089 When Moses went into the Tent of Meeting to speak with Yahweh, he heard his voice speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was on the ark of the Testimony, from between the two cherubim: and he spoke to him. 008:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 008:002 "Speak to Aaron, and tell him, 'When you light the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand.'" 008:003 Aaron did so. He lit its lamps to light the area in front of the lampstand, as Yahweh commanded Moses. 008:004 This was the workmanship of the lampstand, beaten work of gold. From its base to its flowers, it was beaten work: according to the pattern which Yahweh had shown Moses, so he made the lampstand. 008:005 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 008:006 "Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them. 008:007 Thus shall you do to them, to cleanse them: sprinkle the water of cleansing on them, let them shave their whole bodies with a razor, and let them wash their clothes, and cleanse themselves. 008:008 Then let them take a young bull, and its meal offering, fine flour mixed with oil; and another young bull you shall take for a sin offering. 008:009 You shall present the Levites before the Tent of Meeting. You shall assemble the whole congregation of the children of Israel. 008:010 You shall present the Levites before Yahweh. The children of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites, 008:011 and Aaron shall offer the Levites before Yahweh for a wave offering, on the behalf of the children of Israel, that it may be theirs to do the service of Yahweh. 008:012 The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and you shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering to Yahweh, to make atonement for the Levites. 008:013 You shall set the Levites before Aaron, and before his sons, and offer them as a wave offering to Yahweh. 008:014 Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the children of Israel, and the Levites shall be mine. 008:015 "After that, the Levites shall go in to do the service of the Tent of Meeting: and you shall cleanse them, and offer them as a wave offering. 008:016 For they are wholly given to me from among the children of Israel; instead of all who open the womb, even the firstborn of all the children of Israel, I have taken them to me. 008:017 For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are mine, both man and animal. On the day that I struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I sanctified them for myself. 008:018 I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel. 008:019 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 near to the sanctuary." 008:020 Thus did Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the Levites. According to all that Yahweh commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so the children of Israel did to them. 008:021 The Levites purified themselves from sin, and they washed their clothes; and Aaron offered them for a wave offering before Yahweh; and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them. 008:022 After that, the Levites went in to do their service in the Tent of Meeting before Aaron, and before his sons: as Yahweh had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so they did to them. 008:023 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 008:024 "This is that which belongs to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall go in to wait on the service in the work of the Tent of Meeting; 008:025 and from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting on the work, and shall serve no more, 008:026 but shall minister with their brothers in the Tent of Meeting, to keep the charge, and shall do no service. Thus shall you do to the Levites concerning their duties." 009:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 009:002 "Moreover let the children of Israel keep the Passover in its appointed season. 009:003 On the fourteenth day of this month, at evening, you shall keep it in its appointed season—according to all its statutes, and according to all its ordinances, you shall keep it." 009:004 Moses spoke to the children of Israel, that they should keep the Passover. 009:005 They kept the Passover in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at evening, in the wilderness of Sinai. According to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did. 009:006 There were certain men, who were unclean because 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. 009:007 Those men said to him, "We are unclean because of the dead body of a man. Why are we kept back, that we may not offer the offering of Yahweh in its appointed season among the children of Israel?" 009:008 Moses answered them, "Wait, that I may hear what Yahweh will command concerning you." 009:009 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 009:010 "Say to the children of Israel, 'If any man of you or of your generations is unclean by reason of a dead body, or is on a journey far away, he shall still keep the Passover to Yahweh. 009:011 In the second month, on the fourteenth day at evening they shall keep it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. 009:012 They shall leave none of it until the morning, nor break a bone of it. According to all the statute of the Passover they shall keep it. 009:013 But the man who is clean, and is not on a journey, and fails to keep the Passover, that soul shall be cut off from his people. Because he didn't offer the offering of Yahweh in its appointed season, that man shall bear his sin. 009:014 If a foreigner lives among you, and desires to keep the Passover to Yahweh; according to the statute of the Passover, and according to its ordinance, so shall he do. You shall have one statute, both for the foreigner, and for him who is born in the land.'" 009:015 On the day that the tabernacle was raised up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, even the Tent of the Testimony: and at evening it was over the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until morning. 009:016 So it was continually. The cloud covered it, and the appearance of fire by night. 009:017 Whenever the cloud was taken up from over the Tent, then after that the children of Israel traveled; and in the place where the cloud remained, there the children of Israel encamped. 009:018 At the commandment of Yahweh, the children of Israel traveled, and at the commandment of Yahweh they encamped. As long as the cloud remained on the tabernacle they remained encamped. 009:019 When the cloud stayed on the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of Yahweh, and didn't travel. 009:020 Sometimes the cloud was a few days on the tabernacle; then according to the commandment of Yahweh they remained encamped, and according to the commandment of Yahweh they traveled. 009:021 Sometimes the cloud was from evening until morning; and when the cloud was taken up in the morning, they traveled: or by day and by night, when the cloud was taken up, they traveled. 009:022 Whether it was two days, or a month, or a year that the cloud stayed on the tabernacle, remaining on it, the children of Israel remained encamped, and didn't travel; but when it was taken up, they traveled. 009:023 At the commandment of Yahweh they encamped, and at the commandment of Yahweh they traveled. They kept the charge of Yahweh, at the commandment of Yahweh by Moses. 010:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 010:002 Make you two trumpets of silver; of beaten work shall you make them: and you shall use them for the calling of the congregation, and for the journeying of the camps. 010:003 When they shall blow them, all the congregation shall gather themselves to you at the door of the tent of meeting. 010:004 If they blow but one, then the princes, the heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves to you. 010:005 When you blow an alarm, the camps that lie on the east side shall take their journey. 010:006 When you 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. 010:007 But when the assembly is to be gathered together, you shall blow, but you shall not sound an alarm. 010:008 The sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and they shall be to you for a statute forever throughout your generations. 010:009 When you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets; and you shall be remembered before Yahweh your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies. 010:010 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your set feasts, and in the beginnings of your months, you 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 Yahweh your God. 010:011 It happened in the second year, in the second month, on the twentieth day of the month, that the cloud was taken up from over the tent of the testimony. 010:012 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. 010:013 They first took their journey according to the commandment of Yahweh by Moses. 010:014 In the first [place] the standard of the camp of the children of Judah set forward according to their armies: and over his army was Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 010:015 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethanel the son of Zuar. 010:016 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon. 010:017 The tent was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who bore the tent, set forward. 010:018 The standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their armies: and over his army was Elizur the son of Shedeur. 010:019 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 010:020 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Deuel. 010:021 The Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and [the others] did set up the tent against their coming. 010:022 The standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward according to their armies: and over his army was Elishama the son of Ammihud. 010:023 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Manasseh was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 010:024 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni. 010:025 The standard of the camp of the children of Dan, which was the rearward of all the camps, set forward according to their armies: and over his army was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 010:026 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ochran. 010:027 Over the army of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enan. 010:028 Thus were the travels of the children of Israel according to their armies; and they set forward. 010:029 Moses said to Hobab, the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses' father-in-law, We are journeying to the place of which Yahweh said, I will give it to you: come you with us, and we will do you good; for Yahweh has spoken good concerning Israel. 010:030 He said to him, I will not go; but I will depart to my own land, and to my relatives. 010:031 He said, Don't leave us, please; because you know how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and you shall be to us instead of eyes. 010:032 It shall be, if you go with us, yes, it shall be, that whatever good Yahweh shall do to us, the same will we do to you. 010:033 They set forward from the Mount of Yahweh three days' journey; and the ark of the covenant of Yahweh went before them three days' journey, to seek out a resting place for them. 010:034 The cloud of Yahweh was over them by day, when they set forward from the camp. 010:035 It happened, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, Yahweh, and let your enemies be scattered; and let those who hate you flee before you. 010:036 When it rested, he said, Return, Yahweh, to the ten thousands of the thousands of Israel. 011:001 The people were as murmurers, [speaking] evil in the ears of Yahweh: and when Yahweh heard it, his anger was kindled; and the fire of Yahweh burnt among them, and devoured in the uttermost part of the camp. 011:002 The people cried to Moses; and Moses prayed to Yahweh, and the fire abated. 011:003 The name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire of Yahweh burnt among them. 011:004 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? 011:005 We remember the fish, which we ate in Egypt for nothing; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic: 011:006 but now our soul is dried away; there is nothing at all save this manna to look on. 011:007 The manna was like coriander seed, and the appearance of it as the appearance of bdellium. 011:008 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. 011:009 When the dew fell on the camp in the night, the manna fell on it. 011:010 Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, every man at the door of his tent: and the anger of Yahweh was kindled greatly; and Moses was displeased. 011:011 Moses said to Yahweh, Why have you dealt ill with your servant? and why haven't I found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people on me? 011:012 Have I conceived all this people? Have I brought them forth, that you should tell me, Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries a nursing infant, to the land which you swore to their fathers? 011:013 Where should I get meat to give to all this people? for they weep to me, saying, Give us meat, that we may eat. 011:014 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. 011:015 If you deal thus with me, please kill me out of hand, if I have found favor in your sight; and let me not see my wretchedness. 011:016 Yahweh said to Moses, Gather to me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them to the tent of meeting, that they may stand there with you. 011:017 I will come down and talk with you there: and I will take of the Spirit which is on you, and will put it on them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you not bear it yourself alone. 011:018 Say you to the people, Sanctify yourselves against tomorrow, and you shall eat flesh; for you have wept in the ears of Yahweh, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore Yahweh will give you flesh, and you shall eat. 011:019 You shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days, 011:020 but a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome to you; because that you have rejected Yahweh who is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt? 011:021 Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand footmen; and you have said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month. 011:022 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? 011:023 Yahweh said to Moses, Has Yahweh's hand grown short? now shall you see whether my word shall happen to you or not. 011:024 Moses went out, and told the people the words of Yahweh: and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the Tent. 011:025 Yahweh came down in the cloud, and spoke to him, and took of the Spirit that was on him, and put it on the seventy elders: and it happened that when the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did so no more. 011:026 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 on them; and they were of those who were written, but had not gone out to the Tent; and they prophesied in the camp. 011:027 There ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. 011:028 Joshua the son of Nun, the minister of Moses, one of his chosen men, answered, My lord Moses, forbid them. 011:029 Moses said to him, Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all Yahweh's people were prophets, that Yahweh would put his Spirit on them! 011:030 Moses got him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel. 011:031 There went forth a wind from Yahweh, 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 surface of the earth. 011:032 The people rose up all that day, and all the night, and all the next day, and gathered the quails: he who gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp. 011:033 While the flesh was yet between their teeth, before it was chewed, the anger of Yahweh was kindled against the people, and Yahweh struck the people with a very great plague. 011:034 The name of that place was called Kibrothhattaavah, because there they buried the people who lusted. 011:035 From Kibrothhattaavah the people traveled to Hazeroth; and they abode at Hazeroth. 012:001 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married; for he had married a Cushite woman. 012:002 They said, Has Yahweh indeed spoken only with Moses? Hasn't he spoken also with us? Yahweh heard it. 012:003 Now the man Moses was very humble, above all the men who were on the surface of the earth. 012:004 Yahweh spoke suddenly to Moses, and to Aaron, and to Miriam, Come out you three to the tent of meeting. They three came out. 012:005 Yahweh 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. 012:006 He said, Hear now my words: if there be a prophet among you, I Yahweh will make myself known to him in a vision, I will speak with him in a dream. 012:007 My servant Moses is not so; he is faithful in all my house: 012:008 with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form of Yahweh shall he see: why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant, against Moses? 012:009 The anger of Yahweh was kindled against them; and he departed. 012:010 The cloud removed from over the Tent; and behold, Miriam was leprous, as [white as] snow: and Aaron looked at Miriam, and behold, she was leprous. 012:011 Aaron said to Moses, Oh, my lord, please don't lay sin on us, for that we have done foolishly, and for that we have sinned. 012:012 Let her not, I pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb. 012:013 Moses cried to Yahweh, saying, Heal her, God, I beg you. 012:014 Yahweh said to Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, shouldn't she be ashamed seven days? let her be shut up outside of the camp seven days, and after that she shall be brought in again. 012:015 Miriam was shut up outside of the camp seven days: and the people didn't travel until Miriam was brought in again. 012:016 Afterward the people traveled from Hazeroth, and encamped in the wilderness of Paran. 013:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 013:002 Send you men, that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I give to the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall you send a man, everyone a prince among them. 013:003 Moses sent them from the wilderness of Paran according to the commandment of Yahweh: all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel. 013:004 These were their names: Of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur. 013:005 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. 013:006 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 013:007 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. 013:008 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun. 013:009 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu. 013:010 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi. 013:011 Of the tribe of Joseph, [namely], of the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi. 013:012 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli. 013:013 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael. 013:014 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi. 013:015 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. 013:016 These are the names of the men who Moses sent to spy out the land. Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun Joshua. 013:017 Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go up this way by the South, and go up into the hill country: 013:018 and see the land, what it is; and the people who dwell therein, whether they are strong or weak, whether they are few or many; 013:019 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; 013:020 and what the land is, whether it is fat or lean, whether there is wood therein, or not. Be of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the first-ripe grapes. 013:021 So they went up, and spied out the land from the wilderness of Zin to Rehob, to the entrance of Hamath. 013:022 They went up by the South, and came to Hebron; and Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were there. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.) 013:023 They came to the valley of Eshcol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bore it on a staff between two; [they brought] also of the pomegranates, and of the figs. 013:024 That place was called the valley of Eshcol, because of the cluster which the children of Israel cut down from there. 013:025 They returned from spying out the land at the end of forty days. 013:026 They went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word to them, and to all the congregation, and shown them the fruit of the land. 013:027 They told him, and said, We came to the land where you sent us; and surely it flows with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it. 013:028 However the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. 013:029 Amalek dwells in the land of the South: and the Hittite, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, dwell in the hill country; and the Canaanite dwells by the sea, and along by the side of the Jordan. 013:030 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. 013:031 But the men who went up with him said, We aren't able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. 013:032 They brought up an evil report of the land which they had spied out to the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that eats up the inhabitants of it; and all the people who we saw in it are men of great stature. 013:033 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. 014:001 All the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night. 014:002 All the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said to them, Would that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would that we had died in this wilderness! 014:003 Why does Yahweh bring us to this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will be a prey: wouldn't it be better for us to return into Egypt? 014:004 They said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt. 014:005 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. 014:006 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were of those who spied out the land, tore their clothes: 014:007 and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good land. 014:008 If Yahweh delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey. 014:009 Only don't rebel against Yahweh, neither fear the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defense is removed from over them, and Yahweh is with us: don't fear them. 014:010 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. The glory of Yahweh appeared in the tent of meeting to all the children of Israel. 014:011 Yahweh said to Moses, How long will this people despise me? and how long will they not believe in me, for all the signs which I have worked among them? 014:012 I will strike them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they. 014:013 Moses said to Yahweh, Then the Egyptians will hear it; for you brought up this people in your might from among them; 014:014 and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that you Yahweh are in the midst of this people; for you Yahweh are seen face to face, and your cloud stands over them, and you go before them, in a pillar of cloud by day, and in a pillar of fire by night. 014:015 Now if you shall kill this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of you will speak, saying, 014:016 Because Yahweh was not able to bring this people into the land which he swore to them, therefore he has slain them in the wilderness. 014:017 Now please let the power of the Lord be great, according as you have spoken, saying, 014:018 Yahweh is slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity and disobedience; and that will by no means clear [the guilty], visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and on the fourth generation. 014:019 Pardon, Please, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of your loving kindness, and according as you have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now. 014:020 Yahweh said, I have pardoned according to your word: 014:021 but in very deed, as I live, and as all the earth shall be filled with the glory of Yahweh; 014:022 because all those men who have seen my glory, and my signs, which I worked in Egypt and in the wilderness, yet have tempted me these ten times, and have not listened to my voice; 014:023 surely they shall not see the land which I swore to their fathers, neither shall any of those who despised me see it: 014:024 but my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and has followed me fully, him will I bring into the land into which he went; and his seed shall possess it. 014:025 Now the Amalekite and the Canaanite dwell in the valley: tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way to the Red Sea{or, Sea of Reeds}. 014:026 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 014:027 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. 014:028 Tell them, As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so will I do to you: 014:029 your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all who were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, who have murmured against me, 014:030 surely you shall not come into the land, concerning which I swore that I would make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. 014:031 But your little ones, that you said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected. 014:032 But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness. 014:033 Your children shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your prostitution, until your dead bodies be consumed in the wilderness. 014:034 After the number of the days in which you spied out the land, even forty days, for every day a year, shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know my alienation. 014:035 I, Yahweh, have spoken, surely this will I do to all this evil congregation, who are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die. 014:036 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, 014:037 even those men who did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before Yahweh. 014:038 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, remained alive of those men who went to spy out the land. 014:039 Moses told these words to all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly. 014:040 They rose up early in the morning, and got them up to the top of the mountain, saying, Behold, we are here, and will go up to the place which Yahweh has promised: for we have sinned. 014:041 Moses said, Why now do you disobey the commandment of Yahweh, seeing it shall not prosper? 014:042 Don't go up, for Yahweh isn't among you; that you not be struck down before your enemies. 014:043 For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before you, and you shall fall by the sword: because you are turned back from following Yahweh, therefore Yahweh will not be with you. 014:044 But they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of Yahweh, and Moses, didn't depart out of the camp. 014:045 Then the Amalekite came down, and the Canaanite who lived in that mountain, and struck them and beat them down, even to Hormah. 015:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 015:002 Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, When you are come into the land of your habitations, which I give to you, 015:003 and will make an offering by fire to Yahweh, 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 to Yahweh, of the herd, or of the flock; 015:004 then shall he who offers his offering offer to Yahweh a meal offering of a tenth part [of an ephah] of fine flour mixed with the fourth part of a hin of oil: 015:005 and wine for the drink offering, the fourth part of a hin, shall you prepare with the burnt offering, or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. 015:006 Or for a ram, you shall prepare for a meal offering two tenth parts [of an ephah] of fine flour mixed with the third part of a hin of oil: 015:007 and for the drink offering you shall offer the third part of a hin of wine, of a sweet savor to Yahweh. 015:008 When you prepare a bull for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice, to accomplish a vow, or for peace offerings to Yahweh; 015:009 then shall he offer with the bull a meal offering of three tenth parts [of an ephah] of fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil: 015:010 and you shall offer for the drink offering half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to Yahweh. 015:011 Thus shall it be done for each bull, or for each ram, or for each of the male lambs, or of the young goats. 015:012 According to the number that you shall prepare, so shall you do to everyone according to their number. 015:013 All who are native-born shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to Yahweh. 015:014 If a stranger lives as a foreigner with you, or whoever may be among you throughout your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to Yahweh; as you do, so he shall do. 015:015 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you, and for the stranger who lives as a foreigner [with you], a statute forever throughout your generations: as you are, so shall the foreigner be before Yahweh. 015:016 One law and one ordinance shall be for you, and for the stranger who lives as a foreigner with you. 015:017 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 015:018 Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, When you come into the land where I bring you, 015:019 then it shall be that when you eat of the bread of the land, you shall offer up a wave offering to Yahweh. 015:020 Of the first of your dough you shall offer up a cake for a wave offering: as the wave offering of the threshing floor, so shall you heave it. 015:021 Of the first of your dough you shall give to Yahweh a wave offering throughout your generations. 015:022 When you shall err, and not observe all these commandments, which Yahweh has spoken to Moses, 015:023 even all that Yahweh has commanded you by Moses, from the day that Yahweh gave commandment, and onward throughout your generations; 015:024 then it shall be, if it be done unwittingly, without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bull for a burnt offering, for a sweet savor to Yahweh, with the meal offering of it, and the drink offering of it, according to the ordinance, and one male goat for a sin offering. 015:025 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 offering, an offering made by fire to Yahweh, and their sin offering before Yahweh, for their error: 015:026 and all the congregation of the children of Israel shall be forgiven, and the stranger who lives as a foreigner among them; for in respect of all the people it was done unwittingly. 015:027 If one person sins unwittingly, then he shall offer a female goat a year old for a sin offering. 015:028 The priest shall make atonement for the soul who errs, when he sins unwittingly, before Yahweh, to make atonement for him; and he shall be forgiven. 015:029 You shall have one law for him who does anything unwittingly, for him who is native-born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger who lives as a foreigner among them. 015:030 But the soul who does anything with a high hand, whether he is native-born or a foreigner, the same blasphemes Yahweh; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 015:031 Because he has despised the word of Yahweh, and has broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be on him. 015:032 While the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath day. 015:033 Those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Moses and Aaron, and to all the congregation. 015:034 They put him in custody, because it had not been declared what should be done to him. 015:035 Yahweh said to Moses, The man shall surely be put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside of the camp. 015:036 All the congregation brought him outside of the camp, and stoned him to death with stones; as Yahweh commanded Moses. 015:037 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 015:038 Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them that they should make them fringes{or, tassels (Hebrew tzitzit)} in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put on the fringe{or, tassel} of each border a cord of blue: 015:039 and it shall be to you for a fringe{or, tassel}, that you may look on it, and remember all the commandments of Yahweh, and do them; and that you not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you use to play the prostitute; 015:040 that you may remember and do all my commandments, and be holy to your God. 015:041 I am Yahweh your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Yahweh your God. 016:001 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]: 016:002 and they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred fifty princes of the congregation, called to the assembly, men of renown; 016:003 and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, You take too much on you, seeing all the congregation are holy, everyone of them, and Yahweh is among them: why then lift yourselves up above the assembly of Yahweh? 016:004 When Moses heard it, he fell on his face: 016:005 and he spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, In the morning Yahweh will show who are his, and who is holy, and will cause him to come near to him: even him whom he shall choose he will cause to come near to him. 016:006 This do: take you censers, Korah, and all his company; 016:007 and put fire in them, and put incense on them before Yahweh tomorrow: and it shall be that the man whom Yahweh does choose, he [shall be] holy: you take too much on you, you sons of Levi. 016:008 Moses said to Korah, Hear now, you sons of Levi: 016:009 [seems it but] a small thing to you, that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself, to do the service of the tent of Yahweh, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them; 016:010 and that he has brought you near, and all your brothers the sons of Levi with you? and seek you the priesthood also? 016:011 Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against Yahweh: and Aaron, what is he who you murmur against him? 016:012 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; and they said, We won't come up: 016:013 is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but you must needs make yourself also a prince over us? 016:014 Moreover you haven't brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: will you put out the eyes of these men? we won't come up. 016:015 Moses was very angry, and said to Yahweh, "Don't respect their offering: I have not taken one donkey from them, neither have I hurt one of them." 016:016 Moses said to Korah, You and all your company go before Yahweh, you, and they, and Aaron, tomorrow: 016:017 and take every man his censer, and put incense on them, and bring you before Yahweh every man his censer, two hundred fifty censers; you also, and Aaron, each his censer. 016:018 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. 016:019 Korah assembled all the congregation against them to the door of the tent of meeting: and the glory of Yahweh appeared to all the congregation. 016:020 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 016:021 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. 016:022 They fell on their faces, and said, God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and will you be angry with all the congregation? 016:023 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 016:024 Speak to the congregation, saying, Get away from around the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. 016:025 Moses rose up and went to Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him. 016:026 He spoke to the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins. 016:027 So they got them up from the tent 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. 016:028 Moses said, Hereby you shall know that Yahweh has sent me to do all these works; for [I have] not [done them] of my own mind. 016:029 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; then Yahweh hasn't sent me. 016:030 But if Yahweh make a new thing, and the ground open its mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain to them, and they go down alive into Sheol; then you shall understand that these men have despised Yahweh. 016:031 It happened, as he made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground split apart that was under them; 016:032 and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who appertained to Korah, and all their goods. 016:033 So they, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into Sheol: and the earth closed on them, and they perished from among the assembly. 016:034 All Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them; for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up. 016:035 Fire came forth from Yahweh, and devoured the two hundred fifty men who offered the incense. 016:036 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 016:037 Speak to Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter you the fire yonder; for they are holy, 016:038 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 Yahweh; therefore they are holy; and they shall be a sign to the children of Israel. 016:039 Eleazar the priest took the bronze censers, which those who were burnt had offered; and they beat them out for a covering of the altar, 016:040 to be a memorial to the children of Israel, to the end that no stranger, who isn't of the seed of Aaron, comes near to burn incense before Yahweh; that he not be as Korah, and as his company: as Yahweh spoke to him by Moses. 016:041 But on the next day all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, You have killed the people of Yahweh. 016:042 It happened, 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 Yahweh appeared. 016:043 Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tent of meeting. 016:044 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 016:045 Get away from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment. They fell on their faces. 016:046 Moses said to Aaron, Take your censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly to the congregation, and make atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from Yahweh; the plague is begun. 016:047 Aaron took as Moses spoke, 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. 016:048 He stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed. 016:049 Now those who died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died about the matter of Korah. 016:050 Aaron returned to Moses to the door of the tent of meeting: and the plague was stayed. 017:001 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 017:002 Speak to 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 you every man's name on his rod. 017:003 You shall write Aaron's name on the rod of Levi; for there shall be one rod for each head of their fathers' houses. 017:004 You shall lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you. 017:005 It shall happen, 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. 017:006 Moses spoke to 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. 017:007 Moses laid up the rods before Yahweh in the tent of the testimony. 017:008 It happened on the next day, 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 bore ripe almonds. 017:009 Moses brought out all the rods from before Yahweh to all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod. 017:010 Yahweh said to Moses, Put back the rod of Aaron before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the children of rebellion; that you may make an end of their murmurings against me, that they not die. 017:011 Thus did Moses: as Yahweh commanded him, so did he. 017:012 The children of Israel spoke to Moses, saying, Behold, we perish, we are undone, we are all undone. 017:013 Everyone who comes near, who comes near to the tent of Yahweh, dies: shall we perish all of us? 018:001 Yahweh said to Aaron, You and your sons and your fathers' house with you shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary; and you and your sons with you shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood. 018:002 Your brothers also, the tribe of Levi, the tribe of your father, bring you near with you, that they may be joined to you, and minister to you: but you and your sons with you shall be before the tent of the testimony. 018:003 They shall keep your charge, and the charge of all the Tent: only they shall not come near to the vessels of the sanctuary and to the altar, that they not die, neither they, nor you. 018:004 They shall be joined to you, and keep the charge of the tent of meeting, for all the service of the Tent: and a stranger shall not come near to you. 018:005 You shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar; that there be wrath no more on the children of Israel. 018:006 I, behold, I have taken your brothers the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are a gift, given to Yahweh, to do the service of the tent of meeting. 018:007 You and your sons with you shall keep your priesthood for everything of the altar, and for that within the veil; and you shall serve: I give you the priesthood as a service of gift: and the stranger who comes near shall be put to death. 018:008 Yahweh spoke to Aaron, I, behold, I have given you the charge of my wave offerings, even all the holy things of the children of Israel; to you have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to your sons, as a portion forever. 018:009 This shall be your of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire: every offering of theirs, even every meal offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every trespass offering of theirs, which they
