THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Numbers (Author Moses)

31:28And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:

31:29Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for an heave offering of the LORD.

31:30And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.

31:31And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.

31:32And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,

31:33And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,

31:34And threescore and one thousand asses,

31:35And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known man by lying with him.

31:36And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:

31:37And the LORD'S tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and fifteen.

31:38And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute was threescore and twelve.

31:39And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD'S tribute was threescore and one.

31:40And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute was thirty and two persons.

31:41And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD'S heave offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

31:42And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided from the men that warred,

31:43(Now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep,

31:44And thirty and six thousand beeves,

31:45And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,

31:46And sixteen thousand persons;)

31:47Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.
