Numbers (Author Moses)

25:1And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.

25:2And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

25:3And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

25:4And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

25:5And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.

25:6And, 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, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

25:7And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;

25:8And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

25:9And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.

25:10And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

25:11Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy.

25:12Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

25:13And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

25:14Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, even that was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites.

25:15And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head over a people, and of a chief house in Midian.

25:16And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

25:17Vex the Midianites, and smite them:

25:18For 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 a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake.

26:1And it came to pass after the plague, that the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,

26:2Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from twenty years old and upward, throughout their fathers' house, all that are able to go to war in Israel.

26:3And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,

26:4Take the sum of the people, from twenty years old and upward; as the LORD commanded Moses and the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt.

26:64But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.

27:2And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

27:3Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons.

27:4Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a possession among the brethren of our father.

27:5And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.

27:6And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

27:7The 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.

27:8And 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.

27:9And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.

27:10And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren.

27:16Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,

27:19And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

27:20And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

27:21And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: 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.

27:22And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:

27:23And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.
