THE HOLY BIBLE Young's Literal

Numbers (Author Moses)

31:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

31:2`Execute the vengeance of the sons of Israel against the Midianites -- afterwards thou art gathered unto thy people.'

31:3And Moses speaketh unto the people, saying, `Be ye armed some of you for the host, and they are against Midian, to put the vengeance of Jehovah on Midian;

31:4a thousand for a tribe -- a thousand for a tribe, to all the tribes of Israel -- ye do send to the host.'

31:5And there are given out of the thousands of Israel a thousand for a tribe, twelve thousand armed ones of the host;

31:6and Moses sendeth them, a thousand for a tribe, to the host, them and Phinehas son of Eleazar the priest, to the host; and the holy vessels, and the trumpets of the shouting, in his hand.

31:7And they war against Midian, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses, and slay every male;

31:8and the kings of Midian they have slain, besides their pierced ones, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian; and Balaam son of Beor, they have slain with the sword.

31:9And the sons of Israel take captive the women of Midian, and their infants; and all their cattle, and all their substance, and all their wealth they have plundered;

31:10and all their cities, with their habitations, and all their towers, they have burnt with fire.

31:11And they take all the spoil, and all the prey, among man and among beast;

31:12and they bring in, unto Moses, and unto Eleazar the priest, and unto the company of the sons of Israel, the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto the camp, unto the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan, near Jericho.

31:13And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the company, go out to meet them, unto the outside of the camp,

31:14and Moses is wroth against the inspectors of the force, chiefs of the thousands, and chiefs of the hundreds, who are coming in from the host of the battle.

31:15And Moses saith unto them, `Have ye kept alive every female?

31:16lo, they -- they have been to the sons of Israel, through the word of Balaam, to cause a trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor, and the plague is in the company of Jehovah.

31:17`And now, slay ye every male among the infants, yea, every woman known of man by the lying of a male ye have slain;

31:18and all the infants among the women, who have not known the lying of a male, ye have kept alive for yourselves.

31:19`And ye, encamp ye at the outside of the camp seven days -- any who hath slain a person, and any who hath come against a pierced one, ye cleanse yourselves on the third day, and on the seventh day -- ye and your captives;

31:20and every garment, and every skin vessel, and every work of goats' hair, and every wooden vessel, ye yourselves cleanse.'

31:21And Eleazar the priest saith unto the men of the host who go in to battle, `This is the statute of the law which Jehovah hath commanded Moses:

31:22only, the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,

31:23every thing which may go into fire, ye cause to pass over through fire, and it hath been clean; only, with the water of separation it is cleansed, and all that may not go into fire, ye cause to pass over through water;

31:24and ye have washed your garments on the seventh day, and have been clean, and afterwards ye come in unto the camp.'

31:25And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

31:26`Take up the sum of the prey of the captives, among man and among beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the heads of the fathers of the company;

31:27and thou hast halved the prey between those handling the battle who go out to the host and all the company;

31:28and thou hast raised a tribute to Jehovah from the men of war, who go out to the host, one body out of five hundred, of man, and of the herd, and of the asses, and of the flock;

31:29from their half ye do take, and thou hast given to Eleazar the priest -- the heave-offering of Jehovah.

31:30`And from the sons of Israel's half thou dost take one possession out of fifty, of man, of the herd, of the asses, and of the flock, of all the cattle, and thou hast given them to the Levites keeping the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah.'

31:31And Moses doth -- Eleazar the priest also -- as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.

31:32And the prey, the residue of the spoil which the people of the host have spoiled, is of the flock six hundred thousand, and seventy thousand, and five thousand;

31:33and of the herd two and seventy thousand;

31:34and of asses one and sixty thousand;

31:35and of human beings -- of the women who have not known the lying of a male -- all the persons are two and thirty thousand.

31:36And the half -- the portion of those who go out into the host -- the number of the flock is three hundred thousand, and thirty thousand, and seven thousand and five hundred.

31:37And the tribute to Jehovah of the sheep is six hundred five and seventy;

31:38and the herd is six and thirty thousand, and their tribute to Jehovah is two and seventy;

31:39and the asses are thirty thousand and five hundred, and their tribute to Jehovah is one and sixty;

31:40and the human beings are sixteen thousand, and their tribute to Jehovah is two and thirty persons.

31:41And Moses giveth the tribute -- Jehovah's heave-offering -- to Eleazar the priest, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.

31:42And of the sons of Israel's half, which Moses halved from the men who war --

31:43and the company's half is, of the flock three hundred thousand, and thirty thousand, seven thousand and five hundred;

31:44and of the herd six and thirty thousand;

31:45and of asses thirty thousand and five hundred;

31:46and of human beings sixteen thousand --

31:47Moses taketh from the sons of Israel's half the one possession from the fifty, of man and of beast, and giveth them to the Levites keeping the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.

31:48And the inspectors whom the thousands of the host hath, (heads of the thousands and heads of the hundreds), draw near unto Moses,

31:49and they say unto Moses, `Thy servants have taken up the sum of the men of war who are with us, and not a man of us hath been missed;

31:50and we bring near Jehovah's offering, each that which he hath found, vessels of gold -- chain, and bracelet, seal-ring, ear-ring, and bead -- to make atonement for ourselves before Jehovah.'

31:51And Moses receiveth -- Eleazar the priest also -- the gold from them, every made vessel,

31:52and all the gold of the heave-offering which they have lifted up to Jehovah is sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels, from heads of the thousands, and from heads of the hundreds;

31:53(the men of the host have spoiled each for himself);

31:54and Moses taketh -- Eleazar the priest also -- the gold from the heads of the thousands and of the hundreds, and they bring it in unto the tent of meeting -- a memorial for the sons of Israel before Jehovah.

32:1And much cattle hath been to the sons of Reuben and to the sons of Gad, very many; and they see the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, and lo, the place is a place for cattle;

32:2and the sons of Gad, and the sons of Reuben, come in and speak unto Moses, and unto Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the company, saying:

32:3`Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon --

32:4the land which Jehovah hath smitten before the company of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle.'

32:5And they say, `If we have found grace in thine eyes, let this land be given to thy servants for a possession; cause us not to pass over the Jordan.'

32:6And Moses saith to the sons of Gad and to the sons of Reuben, `Do your brethren go in to the battle, and ye -- do ye sit here?

32:7and why discourage ye the heart of the sons of Israel from passing over unto the land which Jehovah hath given to them?

32:8`Thus did your fathers in my sending them from Kadesh-Barnea to see the land;

32:9and they go up unto the valley of Eshcol, and see the land, and discourage the heart of the sons of Israel so as not to go in unto the land which Jehovah hath given to them;

32:10and the anger of Jehovah burneth in that day, and He sweareth, saying,

32:11They do not see -- the men who are coming up out of Egypt from a son of twenty years and upward -- the ground which I have sworn to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, for they have not been fully after Me;

32:12save Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua son of Nun, for they have been fully after Jehovah;

32:13and the anger of Jehovah burneth against Israel, and He causeth them to wander in the wilderness forty years, until the consumption of all the generation which is doing the evil thing in the eyes of Jehovah.

32:14`And lo, ye have risen in the stead of your fathers, an increase of men -- sinners, to add yet to the fury of the anger of Jehovah toward Israel;

32:15when ye turn back from after Him, then He hath added yet to leave him in the wilderness, and ye have done corruptly to all this people.'

32:16And they come nigh unto him, and say, `Folds for the flock we build for our cattle here, and cities for our infants;

32:17and we -- we are armed hasting before the sons of Israel till that we have brought them in unto their place; and our infants have dwelt in the cities of defence because of the inhabitants of the land;

32:18we do not turn back unto our houses till the sons of Israel have inherited each his inheritance,

32:19for we do not inherit with them beyond the Jordan and yonder, for our inheritance hath come unto us beyond the Jordan at the sun-rising.'

32:20And Moses saith unto them, `If ye do this thing: if ye are armed before Jehovah for battle,

32:21and every armed one of you hath passed over the Jordan before Jehovah, till his dispossessing His enemies from before Him,

32:22and the land hath been subdued before Jehovah -- then afterwards ye do turn back, and have been acquitted by Jehovah, and by Israel; and this land hath been to you for a possession before Jehovah.

32:23`And if ye do not so, lo, ye have sinned against Jehovah, and know ye your sin, that it doth find you;

32:24build for yourselves cities for your infants, and folds for your flock, and that which is going out from your mouth do ye.'

32:25And the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben speak unto Moses, saying, `Thy servants do as my lord is commanding;

32:26our infants, our wives, our cattle, and all our beasts, are there in cities of Gilead,

32:27and thy servants pass over, every armed one of the host, before Jehovah, to battle, as my lord is saying.'

32:28And Moses commandeth concerning them Eleazar the priest, and Joshua son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the sons of Israel;

32:29and Moses saith unto them, `If the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben pass over with you the Jordan, every one armed for battle, before Jehovah, and the land hath been subdued before you, then ye have given to them the land of Gilead for a possession;

32:30and if they do not pass over armed with you, then they have possessions in your midst in the land of Canaan.'

32:31And the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben answer, saying, `That which Jehovah hath spoken unto thy servants -- so we do;

32:32we -- we pass over armed before Jehovah to the land of Canaan, and with us is the possession of our inheritance beyond the Jordan.'

32:33And Moses giveth to them, to the sons of Gad, and to the sons of Reuben, and to the half of the tribe of Manasseh son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorite, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land by its cities, in the borders, the cities of the land round about.

32:34And the sons of Gad build Dihon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,

32:35and Atroth, Shophan, and Jaazer, and Jogbehah,

32:36and Beth-Nimrah, and Beth-Haran, cities of defence, and sheepfolds.

32:37And the sons of Reuben have build Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kirjathaim,

32:38and Nebo, and Baal-Meon (changed in name), and Shibmah, and they call by these names the names of the cities which they have built.

32:39And sons of Machir son of Manasseh go to Gilead, and capture it, and dispossess the Amorite, who is in it;

32:40and Moses giveth Gilead to Machir son of Manasseh, and he dwelleth in it.

32:41And Jair son of Manasseh hath gone and captureth their towns, and calleth them `Towns of Jair;'

32:42and Nobah hath gone and captureth Kenath, and its villages, and calleth it Nobah, by his own name.

33:1These are journeys of the sons of Israel who have come out of the land of Egypt, by their hosts, by the hand of Moses and Aaron;

33:2and Moses writeth their outgoings, by their journeys, by the command of Jehovah; and these are their journeys, by their outgoings:

33:3And they journey from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month, on the morrow of the passover have the sons of Israel gone out with a high hand, before the eyes of all the Egyptians --

33:52then ye have dispossessed all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and have destroyed all their imagery, yea, all their molten images ye destroy, and all their high places ye lay waste,

33:53and ye have possessed the land, and dwelt in it, for to you I have given the land -- to possess it.

33:54`And ye have inherited the land by lot, by your families; to the many ye increase their inheritance, and to the few ye diminish their inheritance; whither the lot goeth out to him, it is his; by the tribes of your fathers ye inherit.

33:55`And if ye do not dispossess the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it hath been, those whom ye let remain of them, are for pricks in your eyes, and for thorns in your sides, and they have distressed you on the land in which ye are dwelling,

33:56and it hath come to pass, as I thought to do to them -- I do to you.'
