Numbers (Author Moses)

34:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

34:2`Command the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When ye are coming in unto the land of Canaan -- this is the land which falleth to you by inheritance, the land of Canaan, by its borders --

34:3then hath the south quarter been to you from the wilderness of Zin, by the sides of Edom, yea, the south border hath been to you from the extremity of the Salt Sea, eastward;

34:4and the border hath turned round to you from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and hath passed on to Zin, and its outgoings have been from the south to Kadesh-Barnea, and it hath gone out at Hazar-Addar, and hath passed on to Azmon;

34:5and the border hath turned round from Azmon to the brook of Egypt, and its outgoings have been at the sea.

34:6`As to the west border, even the great sea hath been to you a border; this is to you the west border.

34:7`And this is to you the north border: from the great sea ye mark out for yourselves mount Hor;

34:8from mount Hor ye mark out to go in to Hamath, and the outgoings of the border have been to Zedad;

34:9and the border hath gone out to Ziphron, and its outgoings have been at Hazar-Enan; this is to you the north border.

34:10`And ye have marked out for yourselves for the border eastward, from Hazar-Enan to Shepham;

34:11and the border hath gone down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east of Ain, and the border hath gone down, and hath smitten against the shoulder of the sea of Chinnereth eastward;

34:12and the border hath gone down to the Jordan, and its outgoings have been at the Salt Sea; this is for you the land by its borders round about.'

34:13And Moses commandeth the sons of Israel, saying, `This is the land which ye inherit by lot, which Jehovah hath commanded to give to the nine tribes and the half of the tribe;

34:14for the tribe of the sons of Reuben have received, by the house of their fathers; and the tribe of the children of Gad, by the house of their fathers; and the half of the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance;

34:15the two tribes and the half of the tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan, near Jericho, eastward, at the sun-rising.'

34:16And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

34:17`These are the names of the men who give to you the inheritance of the land: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua son of Nun,

34:18and one prince -- one prince -- for a tribe ye do take to give the land by inheritance.

34:19`And these are the names of the men: of the tribe of Judah, Caleb son of Jephunneh;

34:20and of the tribe of the sons of Simeon, Shemuel son of Aminihud;

34:21of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad son of Chislon;

34:22and of the tribe of the sons of Dan, the prince Bukki son of Jogli;

34:23of the sons of Joseph, of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh, the prince Hanniel son of Ephod;

34:24and of the tribe of the sons of Ephraim, the prince Kemuel son of Shiphtan;

34:25and of the tribe of the sons of Zebulun, the prince Elizaphan son of Parnach;

34:26and of the tribe of the sons of Issachar, the prince Paltiel son of Azzan;

34:27and of the tribe of the sons of Asher, the prince Ahihud son of Shelomi;

34:28and of the tribe of the sons of Naphtali, the prince Pedahel son of Ammihud.'

34:29These are those whom Jehovah hath commanded to give the sons of Israel inheritance in the land of Canaan.

35:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, in the plains of Moab, by Jordan, near Jericho, saying,

35:2`Command the sons of Israel, and they have given to the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to inhabit; also a suburb for the cities round about them ye do give to the Levites.

35:3And the cities have been to them to inhabit, and their suburbs are for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all their beasts.

35:4`And the suburbs of the cities which ye give to the Levites are, from the wall of the city and without, a thousand cubits round about.

35:5And ye have measured from the outside of the city, the east quarter, two thousand by the cubit, and the south quarter, two thousand by the cubit, and the west quarter, two thousand by the cubit, and the north quarter, two thousand by the cubit; and the city is in the midst; this is to them the suburbs of the cities.

35:6`And the cities which ye give to the Levites are the six cities of refuge, which ye give for the fleeing thither of the man-slayer, and besides them ye give forty and two cities;

35:7all the cities which ye give to the Levites are forty and eight cities, them and their suburbs.

35:8And the cities which ye give are of the possession of the sons of Israel, from the many ye multiply, and from the few ye diminish; each, according to his inheritance which they inherit, doth give of his cities to the Levites.'

35:9And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

35:10`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When ye are passing over the Jordan to the land of Canaan,

35:11and have prepared to yourselves cities -- cities of refuge they are to you -- then fled thither hath a man-slayer, smiting a person unawares,

35:12and the cities have been to you for a refuge from the redeemer, and the man-slayer doth not die till his standing before the company for judgment.

35:13`As to the cities which ye give -- six are cities of refuge to you;

35:14the three of the cities ye give beyond the Jordan, and the three of the cities ye give in the land of Canaan; cities of refuge they are.

35:15To sons of Israel, and to a sojourner, and to a settler in their midst, are these six cities for a refuge, for the fleeing thither of any one smiting a person unawares.

35:16`And if with an instrument of iron he hath smitten him, and he dieth, he is a murderer: the murderer is certainly put to death.

35:17`And if with a stone in the hand, wherewith he dieth, he hath smitten him, and he dieth, he is a murderer: the murderer is certainly put to death.

35:18`Or with a wooden instrument in the hand, wherewith he dieth, he hath smitten him, and he dieth, he is a murderer: the murderer is certainly put to death.

35:19`The redeemer of blood himself doth put the murderer to death; in his coming against him he doth put him to death.

35:20`And if in hatred he thrust him through, or hath cast anything at him by lying in wait, and he dieth;

35:21or in enmity he hath smitten him with his hand, and he dieth; the smiter is certainly put to death; he is a murderer; the redeemer of blood doth put the murderer to death in his coming against him.

35:22`And if, in an instant, without enmity, he hath thrust him through, or hath cast at him any instrument, without lying in wait;

35:23or with any stone wherewith he dieth, without seeing, and causeth it to fall upon him, and he dieth, and he is not his enemy, nor seeking his evil;

35:24then have the company judged between the smiter and the redeemer of blood, by these judgments.

35:25`And the company have delivered the man-slayer out of the hand of the redeemer of blood, and the company have caused him to turn back unto the city of his refuge, whither he hath fled, and he hath dwelt in it till the death of the chief priest, who hath been anointed with the holy oil.

35:26`And if the man-slayer at all go out from the border of the city of his refuge whither he fleeth,

35:27and the redeemer of blood hath found him at the outside of the border of the city of his refuge, and the redeemer of blood hath slain the man-slayer, blood is not for him;

35:28for in the city of his refuge he doth dwell till the death of the chief priest; and after the death of the chief priest doth the man-slayer turn back unto the city of his possession.

35:29`And these things have been to you for a statute of judgment to your generations, in all your dwellings:

35:30whoso smiteth a person, by the mouth of witnesses doth one slay the murderer; and one witness doth not testify against a person -- to die.

35:31`And ye take no atonement for the life of a murderer who is condemned -- to die, for he is certainly put to death;

35:32and ye take no atonement for him to flee unto the city of his refuge, to turn back to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest.

35:33`And ye profane not the land which ye are in, for blood profaneth the land; as to the land, it is not pardoned for blood which is shed in it except by the blood of him who sheddeth it;

35:34and ye defile not the land in which ye are dwelling, in the midst of which I do tabernacle, for I Jehovah do tabernacle in the midst of the sons of Israel.'

36:1And the heads of the fathers of the families of the sons of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons of Joseph, come near, and speak before Moses, and before the princes, heads of the fathers of the sons of Israel,

36:2and say, Jehovah commanded my lord to give the land for inheritance by lot to the sons of Israel, and my lord hath been commanded by Jehovah to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters.

36:3`And -- they have been to one of the sons of the other tribes of the sons of Israel for wives, and their inheritance hath been withdrawn from the inheritance of our fathers, and hath been added to the inheritance of the tribe which is theirs, and from the lot of our inheritance it is withdrawn,

36:4and if it is the jubilee of the sons of Israel, then hath their inheritance been added to the inheritance of the tribe which is theirs, and from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers is their inheritance withdrawn.'

36:5And Moses commandeth the sons of Israel, by the command of Jehovah, saying, `Rightly are the tribe of the sons of Joseph speaking;

36:6this is the thing which Jehovah hath commanded concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, To those good in their eyes let them be for wives; only, to a family of the tribe of their fathers let them be for wives;

36:7and the inheritance of the sons of Israel doth not turn round from tribe unto tribe; for each to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers, do the sons of Israel cleave.

36:8`And every daughter possessing an inheritance, of the tribes of the sons of Israel, is to one of the family of the tribe of her father for a wife, so that the sons of Israel possess each the inheritance of his fathers,

36:9and the inheritance doth not turn round from one tribe to another tribe; for each to his inheritance do they cleave, the tribes of the sons of Israel.'

36:10As Jehovah hath commanded Moses, so have the daughters of Zelophehad done,

36:11and Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, daughters of Zelophehad, are to the sons of their fathers' brethren for wives;

36:12to men of the families of the sons of Manasseh, son of Joseph, they have been for wives, and their inheritance is with the tribe of the family of their father.

36:13These are the commands and the judgments which Jehovah hath commanded, by the hand of Moses, concerning the sons of Israel, in the plains of Moab, by Jordan, near Jericho.
