Numbers (Author Moses)

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

25:2And they invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods; and the people ate, and bowed down to their gods.

25:3And Israel joined himself to Baal-Peor; and the anger of Jehovah was kindled against Israel.

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

25:5And Moses said to the judges of Israel, Slay every one his men that have joined themselves to Baal-Peor.

25:6And behold, a man of the children of Israel came and brought a Midianitish woman to his brethren, in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of the whole assembly of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the entrance of the tent of meeting.

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

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

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

25:10And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

25:11Phinehas, 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.

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

25:13And he shall have it, and 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.

25:14And the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, the prince of a father's house of the Simeonites.

25:15And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was tribal head of a father's house in Midian.

25:16And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

25:17Harass the Midianites, and smite them,

25:18for they have harassed 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, who was slain on the day of the plague because of the matter of Peor.

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

26:2Take the sum of the whole assembly of the children of Israel, from twenty years old and upward, according to their fathers' houses, all that go forth to military service in Israel.

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

26:61And Nadab and Abihu died, when they presented strange fire before Jehovah.

26:62And those that were numbered of the Levites were twenty-three thousand, all males 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.

26:63These 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 of Jericho.

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

26:65For 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.

27:1Then 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 were the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.

27:2And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and the whole assembly, at the entrance of the tent of meeting, saying,

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

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

27:5And Moses brought their cause before Jehovah.

27:6And Jehovah spoke to 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 unto the children of Israel shalt thou speak, 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, ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren.

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

27:11And if his father have no brethren, ye shall give his inheritance to his kinsman that is nearest to him in his family, and he shall possess it; and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of right, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

27:12And Jehovah said to Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land that I have given unto the children of Israel.

27:13And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy peoples, as Aaron thy brother was gathered,

27:14because ye rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, as to hallowing me in the matter of the water before their eyes. (That is the water of Meribah at Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

27:15And Moses spoke to Jehovah, saying,

27:16Let Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the assembly,

27:17who 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 assembly of Jehovah be not as sheep that have no shepherd.

27:18And Jehovah said to Moses, Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and thou shalt lay thy hand upon him;

27:19and thou shalt set him before Eleazar the priest, and before the whole assembly; and give him commandment before their eyes.

27:20And thou shalt put of thine honour upon him, that the whole assembly of the children of Israel may obey him.

27:21And 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, he, and all the children of Israel with him, even the whole assembly.

27:22And Moses did as Jehovah had commanded him; and he took Joshua and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before the whole assembly.

27:23And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him commandment, as Jehovah had said through Moses.
