Numbers (Author Moses)

4:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, and unto Aaron, saying,

4:2`Take up the sum of the sons of Kohath from the midst of the sons of Levi, by their families, by the house of their fathers;

4:3from a son of thirty years and upward, even till a son of fifty years, every one going in to the host, to do work in the tent of meeting.

4:4`This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting, the holy of holies:

4:5that Aaron and his sons have come in, in the journeying of the camp, and have taken down the vail of the hanging, and have covered with it the ark of the testimony;

4:6and have put on it a covering of badger skin, and have spread a garment completely of blue above, and have placed its staves.

4:7`And on the table of the presence they spread a garment of blue, and have put on it the dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls, and the cups of the libation, and the bread of continuity is on it,

4:8and they have spread over them a garment of scarlet, and have covered it with a covering of badger skin, and have placed its staves,

4:9and have taken a garment of blue, and have covered the candlestick of the lamp, and its lights, and its snuffers, and its snuff-dishes, and all its oil vessels wherewith they minister to it;

4:10and they have put it and all its vessels unto a covering of badger skin, and have put it on the bar.

4:11`And on the golden altar they spread a garment of blue, and have covered it with a covering of badger skin, and have placed its staves;

4:12and have taken all the vessels of ministry wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and have put them unto a garment of blue, and have covered them with a covering of badger skin, and have put them on the bar,

4:13and have removed the ashes of the altar, and have spread over it a garment of purple;

4:14and have put on it all its vessels wherewith they minister about it, the censers, the hooks, and the shovels, and the bowls, all the vessels of the altar, and have spread on it a covering of badger skin, and have placed its staves:

4:15`And Aaron hath finished -- his sons also -- covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, in the journeying of the camp, and afterwards do the sons of Kohath come in to bear it, and they do not come unto the holy thing, that they have died; these things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting.

4:16`And the oversight of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, is the oil of the lamp, and the spice-perfume, and the present of continuity, and the anointing oil, the oversight of all the tabernacle, and of all that is in it, in the sanctuary, and in its vessels.'

4:17And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

4:18`Ye do not cut off the tribe of the families of the Kohathite from the midst of the Levites;

4:19but this do to them, and they have lived, and do not die in their drawing nigh the holy of holies: -- Aaron and his sons go in, and have set them, each man to his service, and unto his burden,

4:20and they go not in to see when the holy thing is swallowed, that they have died.'

4:21And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

4:22`Take up the sum of the sons of Gershon also by the house of their fathers, by their families;

4:23from a son of thirty years and upward, till a son of fifty years thou dost number them, every one who is going in to serve the host, to do the service in the tent of meeting.

4:24`This is the service of the families of the Gershonite, to serve -- and for burden,

4:25and they have borne the curtains of the tabernacle, and the tent of meeting, its covering, and the covering of the badger skin which is on it above, and the vail at the opening of the tent of meeting,

4:26and the hangings of the court, and the vail at the opening of the gate of the court which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and their cords, and all the vessels of their service, and all that is made for them -- and they have served.

4:27`By the command of Aaron and his sons is all the service of the sons of the Gershonite in all their burden, and in all their service; and ye have laid a charge on them concerning the charge of all their burden.

4:28This is the service of the families of the sons of the Gershonite in the tent of meeting; and their charge is under the hand of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.

4:29`The sons of Merari, by their families, by the house of their fathers, thou dost number them;

4:30from a son of thirty years and upward even unto a son of fifty years thou dost number them, every one who is going in to the host, to do the service of the tent of meeting.

4:31`And this is the charge of their burden, of all their service in the tent of meeting; the boards of the tabernacle, and its bars, and its pillars, and its sockets,

4:32and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords, of all their vessels, and of all their service; and by name ye do number the vessels of the charge of their burden.

4:33`This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari, for all their service, in the tent of meeting, by the hand of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.'

4:34And Moses numbereth -- Aaron also, and the princes of the company -- the sons of the Kohathite, by their families, and by the house of their fathers,

4:35from a son of thirty years and upward even unto a son of fifty years, every one who is going in to the host, for service in the tent of meeting,

4:36and their numbered ones, by their families, are two thousand seven hundred and fifty.

4:37These are those numbered of the families of the Kohathite, every one who is serving in the tent of meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, by the command of Jehovah, by the hand of Moses.

4:38And those numbered of the sons of Gershon, by their families, and by the house of their fathers,

4:39from a son of thirty years and upward even unto a son of fifty years, every one who is going in to the host, for service in the tent of meeting,

4:40even their numbered ones, by their families, by the house of their fathers, are two thousand and six hundred and thirty.

4:44even their numbered ones, by their families, are three thousand and two hundred.

4:45These are those numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, by the command of Jehovah, by the hand of Moses.

4:46All those numbered, whom Moses numbered -- Aaron also, and the princes of Israel -- of the Levites, by their families, and by the house of their fathers,

4:47from a son of thirty years and upward even unto a son of fifty years, every one who is going in to do the work of the service, even the service of burden in the tent of meeting,

4:48even their numbered ones are eight thousand and five hundred and eighty;

4:49by the command of Jehovah hath one numbered them, by the hand of Moses, each man by his service, and by his burden, with his numbered ones, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.

5:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

5:2`Command the sons of Israel, and they send out of the camp every leper, and every one with an issue, and every one defiled by a body;

5:3from male unto female ye do send out; unto the outside of the camp ye do send them; and they defile not their camps in the midst of which I do tabernacle.'

5:4And the sons of Israel do so, and they send them out unto the outside of the camp; as Jehovah hath spoken unto Moses so have the sons of Israel done.

5:5And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

5:6`Speak unto the sons of Israel, Man or woman, when they do any of the sins of man, by committing a trespass against Jehovah, and that person is guilty,

5:7and they have confessed their sin which they have done, then he hath restored his guilt in its principal, and its fifth is adding to it, and hath given it to him in reference to whom he hath been guilty.

5:8`And if the man have no redeemer to restore the guilt to, the guilt which is restored is Jehovah's, the priest's, apart from the ram of the atonements, whereby he maketh atonement for him.

5:9`And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they bring near to the priest, becometh his;

5:10and any man's hallowed things become his; that which any man giveth to the priest becometh his.'

5:11And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

5:12`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When any man's wife turneth aside, and hath committed against him a trespass,

5:13and a man hath lain with her with the seed of copulation, and it hath been hid from the eyes of her husband, and concealed, and she hath been defiled, and there is no witness against her, and she hath not been caught,

5:14and a spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath been defiled; -- or, a spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath not been defiled --

5:15`Then hath the man brought in his wife unto the priest, and he hath brought in her offering for her, a tenth of the ephah of barley meal, he doth not pour on it oil, nor doth he put on it frankincense, for it is a present of jealousy, a present of memorial, causing remembrance of iniquity.

5:16`And the priest hath brought her near, and hath caused her to stand before Jehovah,

5:17and the priest hath taken holy water in an earthen vessel, and of the dust which is on the floor of the tabernacle doth the priest take, and hath put it into the water,

5:18and the priest hath caused the woman to stand before Jehovah, and hath uncovered the woman's head, and hath given into her hands the present of the memorial, it is a present of jealousy, and in the hand of the priest are the bitter waters which cause the curse.

5:19`And the priest hath caused her to swear, and hath said unto the woman, If no man hath lain with thee, and if thou hast not turned aside to uncleanness under thy husband, be free from these bitter waters which cause the curse;

5:20and thou, if thou hast turned aside under thy husband, and if thou hast been defiled, and any man doth give his copulation to thee besides thy husband --

5:21(then the priest hath caused the woman to swear with an oath of execration, and the priest hath said to the woman) -- Jehovah doth give thee for an execration, and for a curse, in the midst of thy people, in Jehovah's giving thy thigh to fall, and thy belly to swell,

5:22and these waters which cause the curse have gone into thy bowels, to cause the belly to swell, and the thigh to fall; and the woman hath said, Amen, Amen.

5:23`And the priest hath written these execrations in a book, and hath blotted them out with the bitter waters,

5:24and hath caused the woman to drink the bitter waters which cause the curse, and the waters which cause the curse have entered into her for bitter things.

5:25`And the priest hath taken out of the hand of the woman the present of jealousy, and hath waved the present before Jehovah, and hath brought it near unto the altar;

5:26and the priest hath taken a handful of the present, its memorial, and hath made perfume on the altar, and afterwards doth cause the woman to drink the water:

5:27yea, he hath caused her to drink the water, and it hath come to pass, if she hath been defiled, and doth commit a trespass against her husband, that the waters which cause the curse have gone into her for bitter things, and her belly hath swelled, and her thigh hath fallen, and the woman hath become an execration in the midst of her people.

5:28`And if the woman hath not been defiled, and is clean, then she hath been acquitted, and hath been sown with seed.

5:29`This is the law of jealousies, when a wife turneth aside under her husband, and hath been defiled,

5:30or when a spirit of jealousy passeth over a man, and he hath been jealous of his wife, then he hath caused the woman to stand before Jehovah, and the priest hath done to her all this law,

5:31and the man hath been acquitted from iniquity, and that woman doth bear her iniquity.'

6:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

6:2`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When a man or woman doeth singularly, by vowing a vow of a Nazarite, to be separate to Jehovah;

6:3from wine and strong drink he doth keep separate; vinegar of wine, and vinegar of strong drink he doth not drink, and any juice of grapes he doth not drink, and grapes moist or dry he doth not eat;

6:4all days of his separation, of anything which is made of the wine-vine, from kernels even unto husk, he doth not eat.

6:5`All days of the vow of his separation a razor doth not pass over his head; till the fulness of the days which he doth separate to Jehovah he is holy; grown up hath the upper part of the hair of his head.

6:6`All days of his keeping separate to Jehovah, near a dead person he doth not go;

6:7for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister -- he is not unclean for them at their death, for the separation of his God is on his head;

6:8all days of his separation he is holy to Jehovah.

6:9`And when the dead dieth beside him in an instant, suddenly, and he hath defiled the head of his separation, then he hath shaved his head in the day of his cleansing; on the seventh day he doth shave it,

6:10and on the eighth day he bringeth in two turtle-doves or two young pigeons unto the priest, unto the opening of the tent of meeting,

6:11and the priest hath prepared one for a sin-offering, and one for a burnt-offering, and hath made atonement for him, because of that which he hath sinned by the body, and he hath hallowed his head on that day;

6:12and he hath separated to Jehovah the days of his separation, and he hath brought in a lamb, a son of a year, for a guilt-offering, and the former days are fallen, for his separation hath been defiled.

6:13`And this is the law of the Nazarite; in the day of the fulness of the days of his separation doth one bring him in unto the opening of the tent of meeting,

6:14and he hath brought near his offering to Jehovah, one he-lamb, a son of a year, a perfect one, for a burnt-offering, and one she-lamb, a daughter of a year, a perfect one, for a sin-offering, and one ram, a perfect one, for peace-offerings,

6:15and a basket of unleavened things of flour, cakes mixed with oil, and thin cakes of unleavened things anointed with oil, and their present, and their libations.

6:16`And the priest hath brought them near before Jehovah, and hath made his sin-offering and his burnt-offering;

6:17and the ram he maketh a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Jehovah, besides the basket of unleavened things; and the priest hath made its present and its libation.

6:18`And the Nazarite hath shaved (at the opening of the tent of meeting) the head of his separation, and hath taken the hair of the head of his separation, and hath put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace-offerings.

6:19`And the priest hath taken the boiled shoulder from the ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one thin unleavened cake, and hath put on the palms of the Nazarite after his shaving his separation;

6:20and the priest hath waved them, a wave-offering before Jehovah; it is holy to the priest, besides the breast of the wave-offering, and besides the leg of the heave-offering; and afterwards doth the Nazarite drink wine.

6:21`This is the law of the Nazarite, who voweth his offering to Jehovah for his separation, apart from that which his hand attaineth; according to his vow which he voweth so he doth by the law of his separation.'

6:22And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

6:23`Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, saying, Thus ye do bless the sons of Israel, saying to them,

6:24`Jehovah bless thee and keep thee;

6:25`Jehovah cause His face to shine upon thee, and favour thee;

6:26`Jehovah lift up His countenance upon thee, and appoint for thee -- peace.

6:27`And they have put My name upon the sons of Israel, and I -- I do bless them.'
