Deuteronomy 16

Deu 16:1 Observe the month Abib, and perform the Passover to Jehovah your God. For in the month of Abib Jehovah your God brought you out of Egypt by night.
Deu 16:2 And you shall sacrifice a Passover to Jehovah your God of the flock, and of the herd, in the place which He shall choose to cause His name to dwell there.
Deu 16:3 You shall eat with it no leaven. You shall eat unleavened bread with it seven days, even the bread of affliction. For you came out of the land of Egypt in haste, so that you may remember the day that you came out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
Deu 16:4 And there shall be no leaven seen with you in your borders seven days; nor shall any of the flesh which you sacrificed the first day at evening remain all night until the morning.
Deu 16:5 You may not sacrifice the Passover offering inside any of your gates, which Jehovah your God gives you.
Deu 16:6 But at the place which He shall choose to cause His name to dwell there, you shall sacrifice the Passover offering at evening, at the going of the sun, at the time when you came out of Egypt.
Deu 16:7 And you shall cook and eat in the place which Jehovah your God shall choose. And in the morning you shall turn and go into your tents.
Deu 16:8 You shall eat unleavened bread six days, and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Jehovah your God. You shall do no work.
Deu 16:9 You shall number to yourself seven weeks. When the sickle begins to reap in the standing grain, you shall begin to number seven weeks.
Deu 16:10 And you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to Jehovah your God according to the measure of the freewill offering of your hand, which you shall give according as Jehovah your God blesses you.
Deu 16:11 And you shall rejoice before Jehovah your God, you and your son, and your daughter, and your male slave, and your slave-girl, and the Levite that is inside your gates, and the alien, and the fatherless, and the widow that are among you, in the place which Jehovah your God shall choose to cause His name to dwell there.
Deu 16:12 And you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and you shall take heed to do these statutes.
Deu 16:13 You shall keep the Feast of Tabernacles seven days after you have gathered in from your threshingfloor, and from your winepress.
Deu 16:14 And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son, and your daughter, and your male slave, and your slave-girl, and the Levite, and the alien, and the fatherless, and the widow that are inside your gates.
Deu 16:15 You shall keep a solemn feast seven days to Jehovah your God in the place which Jehovah shall choose; for Jehovah your God shall bless you in all your produce, and in every work of your hands, and you shall be altogether joyful.
Deu 16:16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Jehovah your God in the place which He shall choose: In the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and in the Feast of Weeks and in the Feast of Tabernacles. And they shall not appear before Jehovah empty,
Deu 16:17 but each with his gift of his hand, according to the blessing of Jehovah your God, which He has given you.
Deu 16:18 You shall appoint judges and officers for yourself in all your gates which Jehovah your God gives you, tribe by tribe. And they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.
Deu 16:19 You shall not pervert judgment. You shall not regard faces, nor shall you take a bribe; for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous.
Deu 16:20 You shall follow perfect justice, that you may live and possess the land which Jehovah your God is giving you.
Deu 16:21 You shall not set up for yourself pillars of any trees, which you make for yourself near the altar of Jehovah your God.
Deu 16:22 And you shall not raise up for yourself any standing image, which Jehovah your God detests.

Deuteronomy 15

Deu 15:1 At the end of every seven years you shall make a release.
Deu 15:2 And this is the manner of the release: Everyone who has a loan to his neighbor shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, because a release has been proclaimed for Jehovah.
Deu 15:3 You may exact it from a foreigner, but your hand shall release whatever is yours with your brother,
Deu 15:4 only that there shall be no one in need among you. For Jehovah will greatly bless you in the land that Jehovah your God is giving you for an inheritance, to possess it,
Deu 15:5 only if hearing you listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to take heed to do all this command which I am commanding you today.
Deu 15:6 For Jehovah your God will bless you as He promised you. And you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And you shall rule over many nations, but they shall not rule over you.
Deu 15:7 If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers inside any of your gates in your land which Jehovah your God is giving to you, you shall not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your needy brother.
Deu 15:8 But opening you shall open your hand to him, and lending you shall lend him enough for his need in that which he lacks.
Deu 15:9 Beware that there is no evil thought in your heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release draws near; and your eye be evil against your needy brother, and you give him nothing, and he cry to Jehovah against you and it be sin to you.
Deu 15:10 Giving you shall give to him, and your heart shall not be grieved when you give to him, because Jehovah your God will bless you for this thing, in all your work, and in all that you put your hand to.
Deu 15:11 For the poor will never cease from the midst of the land. On account of this I command you, saying, Opening you shall open your hand to your poor and needy brother in your land.
Deu 15:12 If your brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, is sold to you and serves you six years, then in the seventh year you shall let him go free from you.
Deu 15:13 And when you send him out free from you, you shall not let him go away empty.
Deu 15:14 You shall richly adorn him from your flock, and from your threshing floor, and from your winepress, with that which Jehovah your God has blessed you, you shall give to him.
Deu 15:15 And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and Jehovah your God redeemed you. On account of this I command you this thing today.
Deu 15:16 And it shall be, if he says to you, I will not go out from you, because he loves you and your house, because it was good for him with you;
Deu 15:17 then you shall take an awl, and shall put it through his ear, and through the door, and he shall be your slave forever. And you shall do so to your slave-girl also.
Deu 15:18 It shall not seem hard in your eyes when you send him away free from you. For to the double of the hire of a hireling he has served you six years. And Jehovah your God will bless you in all that you do.
Deu 15:19 The firstling males that are born of your herd and of your flock, you shall sanctify to Jehovah your God. You shall do no work with the firstling of your ox, nor shear the firstling of your flock.
Deu 15:20 You shall eat it before Jehovah your God year by year in the place which Jehovah shall choose, you and your household.
Deu 15:21 And if there is any blemish in it, lameness, or blindness, or any evil blemish whatever, you shall not sacrifice it to Jehovah your God.
Deu 15:22 You shall eat it inside your gates; the unclean and the clean alike, as the gazelle and as the hart.
Deu 15:23 Only, you shall not eat its blood; you shall pour it on the ground like water.

Deuteronomy 14

Deu 14:1 You are sons to Jehovah your God; you shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.
Deu 14:2 For you are a holy people to Jehovah your God; and Jehovah has chosen you to be a people to Him, a special treasure out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
Deu 14:3 You shall not eat any abominable thing.
Deu 14:4 These are the animals which you shall eat: the ox, the flocked sheep, and the flocked goat,
Deu 14:5 the hart and gazelle, and roe deer, and wild goat, and antelope, and oryx, and moufflon.
Deu 14:6 And you may eat every animal that divides the hoof, and divides two hoofs wholly, and chews the cud among the animals.
Deu 14:7 But you shall not eat of those that only chew the cud, or those only dividing the cloven hoof: the camel, and the hare, and the rock badger; for they chew the cud but do not divide the hoof. They shall be unclean to you.
Deu 14:8 And the swine, because it divides the hoof, but does not chew the cud; it is unclean to you. You shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead body.
Deu 14:9 These you shall eat of all in the waters: you shall eat all that have fins and scales.
Deu 14:10 And whatever does not have fins and scales, you shall not eat. It shall be unclean to you.
Deu 14:11 You shall eat of all clean birds.
Deu 14:12 But you shall not eat of these: the eagle, the black vulture, and the bearded vulture,
Deu 14:13 and the hawk, and falcons, and the kite by its kinds,
Deu 14:14 and all ravens by their kinds;
Deu 14:15 and the ostrich, and the great owl, and the sea gull, and small hawks by their kinds,
Deu 14:16 the little owl, and the eared owl, and the barn owl,
Deu 14:17 and the pelican, and the owl, and the cormorant,
Deu 14:18 and the stork, and the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
Deu 14:19 And every teeming thing that flies shall be unclean to you; they shall not be eaten.
Deu 14:20 You may eat of all clean birds.
Deu 14:21 You shall not eat of anything that died of itself. You may give it to the alien who is within your gates, that he may eat it. Or you may sell it to a foreigner. For you are a holy people to Jehovah your God. You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.
Deu 14:22 Tithing you shall tithe all the increase of your seed that the field yields year by year.
Deu 14:23 And you shall eat before Jehovah your God in the place which He shall choose to cause His name to dwell there, the tithe of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock; that you may learn to fear Jehovah your God all your days.
Deu 14:24 And if the way is too long for you, so that you cannot carry it, because the place is too far from you which Jehovah your God shall choose to set His name there, when Jehovah your God shall bless you;
Deu 14:25 Then you shall give it for silver, and bind up the silver in your hand. And you shall go to the place which Jehovah your God shall choose.
Deu 14:26 And you shall pay the silver for whatever your soul desires, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for fermented drink, or for whatever your soul desires. And you shall eat there before Jehovah your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household.
Deu 14:27 And you shall not forsake the Levite who is within your gates, for he has no portion nor inheritance with you.
Deu 14:28 At the end of three years, even the same year, you shall bring forth all the tithe of your increase, and shall lay it up within your gates.
Deu 14:29 And the Levite, because he has no portion nor inheritance with you, and the alien, and the fatherless, and the widow who are within your gates shall come and shall eat and be satisfied; so that Jehovah your God may bless you in all the work of your hand which you do.

Deuteronomy 13

Deu 13:1 If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams rises among you, and gives you a sign or a wonder,
Deu 13:2 and the sign or the wonder which he spoke to you occurs, saying, Let us go after other gods which you have not known, and let us serve them,
Deu 13:3 you shall not listen to the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams. For Jehovah your God is testing you, to know if you love Jehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Deu 13:4 You shall walk after Jehovah your God, and you shall fear Him. And you shall keep His commandments, and you shall hear His voice, and you shall serve Him, and you shall cleave to Him.
Deu 13:5 And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall die, because he has spoken apostasy against Jehovah your God, who is bringing you out of the land of Egypt, and has redeemed you out of the house of slaves, to thrust you out of the way in which Jehovah your God has commanded you to walk. And you shall put away evil from among you.
Deu 13:6 If your brother, your mother’s son, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, shall entice you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known, you and your fathers,
Deu 13:7 of the gods of the people around you, those near you or far off from you, from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth,
Deu 13:8 you shall not consent to him, nor listen to him, nor shall your eye have pity on him, nor shall you spare nor hide him.
Deu 13:9 But killing you shall kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to cause him to die, and the hand of all the people last.
Deu 13:10 And you shall stone him with stones, and he shall die, for he has sought to thrust you out from Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slaves.
Deu 13:11 And all Israel shall hear and fear, and shall not again do any such wicked thing as this among you.
Deu 13:12 If, in one of your cities which Jehovah your God is giving you to live in, you hear one saying,
Deu 13:13 Certain men, sons of Belial, have gone out from among you and have drawn away those who live in their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known;
Deu 13:14 then you shall inquire and make search, and ask carefully; and, behold, if the thing is truly established, that this abominable thing has been done among you,
Deu 13:15 striking you shall strike those who live in that city by the mouth of the sword, destroying it completely, and all that is in it, and its livestock, with the mouth of the sword.
Deu 13:16 And you shall gather all its spoil into the middle of its open place, and shall burn the city with fire, and all its spoil, completely, before Jehovah your God. And it shall be a heap forever; it shall not be built any more.
Deu 13:17 And not any of the cursed thing shall cleave to your hand, so that Jehovah shall turn from the fierceness of His anger, and shall give mercies to you, and shall love you, and shall multiply you, as He has sworn to your fathers,
Deu 13:18 when you listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to keep all His commandments which I am commanding you today, to do that which is right in the eyes of Jehovah your God.

Deuteronomy 12

Deu 12:1 These are the statutes and the ordinances which you shall take heed to do in the land which Jehovah the God of your fathers has given to you, to possess it, all the days that you live on the earth:
Deu 12:2 Destroying you shall destroy all the places where the nations which you are dispossessing served their gods, on the high mountains, and on the hills, and under every leafy tree.
Deu 12:3 And you shall break down their altars, and shatter their standing pillars. And you shall burn their Asherahs with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their gods, and shall destroy their names out of that place.
Deu 12:4 You shall not do so to Jehovah your God.
Deu 12:5 But you shall seek to the place which Jehovah your God shall choose out of all your tribes; for you shall seek His dwelling, to put His name there. And you shall go there.
Deu 12:6 And you shall bring your burnt offerings there, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offering, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock.
Deu 12:7 And you shall eat there before Jehovah your God, and shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to, you and your households, with which Jehovah your God has blessed you.
Deu 12:8 You shall not do according to all that we are doing here today, each doing all that is right in his own eyes.
Deu 12:9 For you have not come to the rest and to the inheritance which Jehovah your God is giving to you.
Deu 12:10 And you shall cross over the Jordan, and shall live in the land which Jehovah your God is causing you to inherit. And He shall give you rest from all your enemies all around; and you shall live securely.
Deu 12:11 And it shall be the place which Jehovah your God shall choose to cause His name to dwell there, there you shall bring all that I am commanding you, your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice freewill offerings which you vow to Jehovah.
Deu 12:12 And you shall rejoice before Jehovah your God, you and your sons, and your daughters, and your male slaves, and your female slaves, and the Levite within your gates because he has no portion or inheritance with you.
Deu 12:13 Take heed to yourself that you not offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see;
Deu 12:14 but in the place which Jehovah shall choose in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command.
Deu 12:15 Only with all the desire of your soul you shall sacrifice and shall eat flesh within all your gates according to the blessing of Jehovah your God which He has given you; the unclean and the clean one may eat of it, as of the gazelle and as of the hart.
Deu 12:16 Only, you shall not eat the blood; you shall pour it as water on the earth.
Deu 12:17 You are not able to eat the tithe of your grain within your gates, and of your new wine, and your oil, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock, and any of your vows which you vow, and your freewill offering, and the heave offering of your hand.
Deu 12:18 But you shall eat it before Jehovah your God in the place which Jehovah your God shall choose, you and your son, and your daughter, and your male slave, and your female slave, and the Levite who is within your gates. And you shall rejoice before Jehovah your God in all that you put your hand to.
Deu 12:19 Take heed to yourself that you do not forsake the Levite as long as you live on the land.
Deu 12:20 Then Jehovah your God shall enlarge your border, as He has promised you, and you shall say, I will eat flesh, because your soul desires to eat flesh, you may eat flesh according to all the desire of your soul.
Deu 12:21 If the place which Jehovah your God shall choose to put His name there is too far from you, then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock which Jehovah has given you, as I have commanded you; and you shall eat within your gates according to all the desire of your soul.
Deu 12:22 Only, as the gazelle and the hart are eaten, so you shall eat of it; the unclean and the clean may eat of it alike.
Deu 12:23 Only, be sure not to eat the blood, for the blood is the life, and you shall not eat the life with the flesh;
Deu 12:24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it on the earth as water.
Deu 12:25 You shall not eat it in order that it may be well with you and with your sons after you, when you do that which is right in the eyes of Jehovah.
Deu 12:26 Only, your holy things which you have, and your vows, you shall take up and shall go to the place which Jehovah shall choose.
Deu 12:27 And you shall offer your burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, on the altar of Jehovah your God; and the blood of your sacrifices shall be poured out by the altar of Jehovah your God; and you shall eat the flesh.
Deu 12:28 Take heed to listen to all these Words which I am commanding you, in order that it may be well with you and with your sons after you forever, when you do that which is good and right in the eyes of Jehovah your God.
Deu 12:29 When Jehovah your God shall cut off the nations from before you, where you are going in to possess them, and you shall possess them, and shall live in their land,
Deu 12:30 take heed to yourself that you not be snared to follow them after they have been destroyed before you; and that you not inquire after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? And I shall do so, even I.
Deu 12:31 You shall not do so to Jehovah your God; for everything hateful to Jehovah, which He detests, they have done to their gods. For they have even burned their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods.
Deu 12:32 All the things that I command you, take heed to do them and you shall not add to it, nor take away from it.

Deuteronomy 11

Deu 11:1 And you shall love Jehovah your God, and keep His charge, and His statutes and His judgments, and His commandments all the days.
Deu 11:2 And you know today, for I do not speak with your sons who have not known, and who have not seen the chastisement of Jehovah your God, His greatness, His mighty hand, and His stretched out arm,
Deu 11:3 and His signs, and His works which He did in the midst of Egypt to Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and to all his land;
Deu 11:4 and that which He has done to the army of Egypt, to its horses, and to its chariots, when He caused the waters of the Sea of Reeds to flow over them as they pursued them. And Jehovah destroyed them to this day;
Deu 11:5 and that which He has done to you in the wilderness, until you came to this place;
Deu 11:6 and that which He has done to Dathan, and to Abiram, sons of Eliab, Reuben’s son, when the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them and their houses and their tents and all the living substance at their feet, in the midst of all Israel.
Deu 11:7 But your eyes see all the great work of Jehovah which He has done.
Deu 11:8 And you shall keep all the commandments which I am commanding you today, so that you shall be strong, and shall go in and possess the land to which you are crossing over, to possess it;
Deu 11:9 and so that you may prolong your days in the land which Jehovah has sworn to your fathers, to give to them and to their seed, a land flowing with milk and honey.
Deu 11:10 For the land to which you are going, to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from where you came, where you sowed your seed and watered it with your foot, as a garden of herbs.
Deu 11:11 But the land which you are entering to possess it is a land of hills and valleys, drinking water from the rain of the heavens;
Deu 11:12 a land which Jehovah your God cares for; the eyes of Jehovah your God are always on it from the beginning of the year to the end of the year.
Deu 11:13 And it shall be, if listening you will listen to My commands which I command you today, to love Jehovah your God, and to serve Him with all your heart, and with all your soul,
Deu 11:14 that I will give the rain of your land in its season, the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your grain, and your wine, and your oil.
Deu 11:15 And I will give grass in your fields for your livestock; and you shall eat and be satisfied.
Deu 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart not be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods, and bow down to them;
Deu 11:17 and the anger of Jehovah glow against you, and He shut up the heavens, and there be no rain, and the ground not give her increase, and you perish quickly from off the good land which Jehovah is giving to you.
Deu 11:18 And you shall lay these Words up in your hearts, and in your souls, and shall bind them for a sign on your hand. And they shall be for frontlets between your eyes.
Deu 11:19 And you shall teach them to your sons by speaking of them as you sit in your house, and as you walk in the way, and as you lie down, and as you rise up.
Deu 11:20 And you shall write them on the side posts of your house, and on your gates,
Deu 11:21 that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied in the land which Jehovah has sworn to your fathers, to give to them, as the days of the heavens over the earth.
Deu 11:22 For if keeping you will keep this command which I am commanding you, to do it, to love Jehovah your God, to walk in all His ways, and to cleave to Him,
Deu 11:23 then Jehovah shall dispossess all these nations from before you, and you shall possess nations greater and mightier than you.
Deu 11:24 Every place where the sole of your foot treads shall be yours, from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the Euphrates River even to the furthest sea shall be your border.
Deu 11:25 No man shall stand before you. Jehovah your God shall put your dread and your fear on the face of all the land on which you tread, as He has spoken to you.
Deu 11:26 Behold! I set before you today a blessing and a curse:
Deu 11:27 a blessing if you hear the commandments of Jehovah your God which I command you today;
Deu 11:28 and a curse if you will not hear the commandments of Jehovah your God, but will turn aside out of the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.
Deu 11:29 And it shall be when Jehovah your God shall bring you into the land to which you go to possess it, that you shall set the blessing on Mount Gerizim, and the curse on Mount Ebal.
Deu 11:30 Are they not beyond the Jordan, behind the way of the sunset, in the land of the Canaanites that live in the Arabah, opposite to Gilgal, beside the oaks of Moreh?
Deu 11:31 For you are to cross over the Jordan to go in to possess the land which Jehovah your God is giving to you; and you shall possess it and live in it.
Deu 11:32 And take heed to do all the statutes and the judgments which I am giving before you today.

Num 25:11 Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned My wrath away from the sons of Israel while he was zealous for My sake among them, so that I did not consume the sons of Israel in My jealousy.

Numbers 24

Num 24:1 And Balaam saw that it pleased Jehovah to bless Israel, and he did not go, as at other times to seek spells. And he set his face toward the wilderness.
Num 24:2 And Balaam lifted up his eyes and saw Israel camping, by its tribes. And the Spirit of God was on him.

Num 24:4 the saying of him who hears the Words of God, who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen down, yet with open eyes:
Num 24:5 How good are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel!
Num 24:6 They are spread out like valleys, like gardens by a river; and Jehovah has planted aloes, as cedars beside the water.

Num 24:12 And Balaam said to Balak, Did I not speak to your messengers that you sent to me, saying,
Num 24:13 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the mouth of Jehovah, to do good or bad of my own heart. What Jehovah speaks, that I will speak.
Num 24:14 And now, behold, I go to my people. Come, and I will counsel you what this people shall do to your people in the latter days.
Num 24:15 And he took up his parable and said, The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the saying of the man whose eyes are opened;
Num 24:16 the saying of him who hears the bulls of God, and he knowing the knowledge of the Most High, who sees the vision of the Almighty, falling down, yet with open eyes:
Num 24:17 I shall see him, but not now; I shall behold him, but not near. A star marches out of Jacob, and a scepter shall rise out of Israel and shall dash the corners of Moab, and break down all the sons of tumult.
Num 24:18 And Edom shall be a possession; and Seir shall be a possession, for his foes; but Israel shall do mightily.
Num 24:19 And one out of Jacob shall rule, and will destroy the survivors from Ar.
Num 24:20 And he looked upon Amalek, and took up his parable and said, Amalek was the first of the nations, but his latter end is to destruction forever.
Num 24:21 And he looked upon the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, Your dwelling-place may be enduring, and your nest may be set in a rock.
Num 24:22 But the Kenites shall be consumed, until Assyria shall carry you away.
Num 24:23 And he took up his parable and said, Alas! Who shall live when God puts out?
Num 24:24 And ships shall come from the coast of Cyprus, and they shall humble Assyria, and they shall humble Eber, and he also shall come to destruction forever.
Num 24:25 And Balaam rose up and left, and returned to his place; and Balak also went on his way.

Numbers 23

Num 23:1 And Balaam said to Balak, Build seven altars for me here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me here.
Num 23:2 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken. And Balak and Balaam offered a bull and a ram on the altar.
Num 23:3 And Balaam said to Balak, Station yourself by your burnt offering, and I will go on; it may be that Jehovah will come to meet me, and I will declare to you the things which He reveals to me. And he went to a high place.
Num 23:4 And God came to Balaam, and he said to Him, I have set up seven altars. And I have offered a bull and a ram on the altar.
Num 23:5 And Jehovah put a word in Balaam’s mouth, and said, Return to Balak, and you shall say this.
Num 23:6 And he returned to him. And, lo, he was standing by his burnt offering, he and all the leaders of Moab.
Num 23:7 And he took up his parable and said, He has led me from Aram, Balak king of Moab; from the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse Jacob for me; and, come, rage at Israel.
Num 23:8 How shall I curse him whom God has not cursed? And how shall I rage at him at whom Jehovah has not raged?
Num 23:9 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and I behold him from the heights. Behold, it is a people that shall dwell alone and not be reckoned among the nations.
Num 23:10 Who can count Jacob’s dust, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!
Num 23:11 And Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, and lo you have surely blessed.
Num 23:12 And he replied and said, Must not I take heed to speak what Jehovah has put in my mouth?
Num 23:13 And Balak said to him, Now come with me to another place where you will see it; only you will see its edge and shall not see all of it; and curse it for me there.
Num 23:14 And he took him to the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bull and a ram on the altar.
Num 23:15 And he said to Balak, Station yourself by the burnt offering while I go to meet Him over there.
Num 23:16 And Jehovah met Balaam and put a word in his mouth and said, Return to Balak, and say this.
Num 23:17 And he came to him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt offering, and Moab’s chiefs with him. And he said to him, What has Jehovah spoken?
Num 23:18 And he took up his parable and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; give ear to me, son of Zippor.
Num 23:19 God is not a man that He should lie, or a son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and shall He not do it? And has He spoken, and shall He not make it good?
Num 23:20 Behold, I have received word to bless; yes, He has blessed; I cannot reverse it.
Num 23:21 He has seen no iniquity in Jacob, nor has He seen mischief in Israel. Jehovah his God is with him, and the shout of a king is in him.
Num 23:22 God who brought them out of Egypt is for him like the lofty horns of the wild ox.
Num 23:23 For there is not a spell against Jacob, nor any divination against Israel. Now it is said of Jacob and Israel, See what God has done!
Num 23:24 Behold, the people shall rise like a lioness and as a lion he shall lift himself up; he shall not lie down until he eats the prey and drinks the blood of the slain.
Num 23:25 And Balak said to Balaam, Do not curse it at all, nor bless it at all.
Num 23:26 And Balaam answered and said to Balak, Did I not speak to you, saying, All that Jehovah speaks, that I will do?
Num 23:27 And Balak said to Balaam, Come, please, I will take you to another place. It may be that it will be right in the eyes of God to curse it for me from there.
Num 23:28 And Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor, which looks toward the wilderness.
Num 23:29 And Balaam said to Balak, Build seven altars for me here, and prepare seven bulls and seven rams for me here.
Num 23:30 And Balak did as Balaam said; and he offered a bull and a ram on the altar.

Num 22:2 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites.
Num 22:3 And Moab greatly feared because of the people, for it was many. And Moab was vexed by the presence of the sons of Israel.
Num 22:4 And Moab said to the elders of Midian, Now this assembly is licking up all that is around us, as the ox licks up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time.
Num 22:5 And he sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor which is beside the River of the land of the sons of his people, to call for him, saying, Behold! A people has come out of Egypt. Behold! it has covered the eye of the earth, and it is sitting next to me.
Num 22:6 And now please come, curse this people for me, for it is stronger than I. Perhaps I will prevail, that we may strike them, that I may drive them out from the land. For I know that whoever you bless is blessed, and whoever you curse is cursed.
Num 22:7 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian left with the rewards of the seer in their hand. And they came to Balaam and spoke the words of Balak to him.
Num 22:8 And he said to them, Stay here tonight, and I will bring back word to you, even as Jehovah may speak to me. And the leaders of Moab stayed with Balaam.
Num 22:9 And God came to Balaam and said, Who are these men with you?
Num 22:10 And Balaam said to God, Balak the son of Zippor king of Moab has sent to me,
Num 22:11 saying, Behold, a people has come out of Egypt which covers the eye of the earth. Now come, curse them for me; perhaps I will be able to overcome it and drive it out.
Num 22:12 And God said to Balaam, You shall not go with them. You shall not curse the people, for it is blessed.
Num 22:13 And Balaam rose in the morning and said to the leaders of Balak. Go to your land, for Jehovah has refused to give me leave to go with you.
Num 22:14 And the leaders of Moab rose up and came to Balak. And they said, Balaam refuses to come with us.
Num 22:15 And Balak sent yet again, more leaders and more honorable than they.
Num 22:16 And they came to Balaam and said to him, So says Balak the son of Zippor, Please do not be hindered from coming to me,
Num 22:17 for I will honor you with very much honor; and all that you say to me I will do. And please come, curse this people for me.
Num 22:18 And Balaam answered and said to the servants of Balak, If Balak would give to me his house full of gold and silver, I could not go beyond the mouth of Jehovah my God, to do anything, small or great.
Num 22:19 And now you also please stay here tonight. And I shall know what more Jehovah may speak to me.
Num 22:20 And God came to Balaam at night and said to him, If the men have come to call you, rise up, go with them and say only the thing that I speak to you; it you shall do.
Num 22:21 And Balaam rose up in the morning and saddled his ass and went with the leaders of Moab.
Num 22:22 And the anger of God glowed because he went. And the Angel of Jehovah set Himself in the road, as a foe against him. And he was riding on his ass, and two of his young men with him.
Num 22:23 And the ass saw the Angel of Jehovah standing in the road, and His sword was drawn in His hand. And the ass turned out of the road and went into a field. And Balaam struck the ass, to turn it back into the road.
Num 22:24 And the Angel of Jehovah stood in a narrow path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side and a wall on that.
Num 22:25 And the ass saw the Angel of Jehovah, and she pushed herself to the wall and crushed the foot of Balaam against the wall. And again he struck her.
Num 22:26 And again the Angel of Jehovah passed on and stood in a narrow place, where there was no way to turn, either to the right or to the left.
Num 22:27 And the ass saw the Angel of Jehovah, and she lay down under Balaam. And the anger of Balaam glowed, and he struck the ass with his staff.
Num 22:28 And Jehovah opened the mouth of the ass, and she said to Balaam, What have I done to you that you have struck me these three times?
Num 22:29 And Balaam said to the ass, Because you have insulted me. If only there were a sword in my hand now I would kill you.
Num 22:30 And the ass said to Balaam, Am I not your ass on which you have ridden all your life long to this day? Was I ever known to do so to you? And he said, No.
Num 22:31 And Jehovah opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the Angel of Jehovah standing in the road with His sword drawn in His hand. And he bowed and fell on his face.
Num 22:32 And the Angel of Jehovah said to him, Why have you struck your ass these three times? Behold, I have come out as an enemy because your way is contrary to Me.
Num 22:33 And the ass saw Me and turned aside before Me these three times. If she had not turned aside surely now I would have killed you and saved her alive.
Num 22:34 And Balaam said to the Angel of Jehovah, I have sinned, for I did not know that You stood against me in the way. Now if evil is in Your eyes, I will turn back by myself.
Num 22:35 And the Angel of Jehovah said to Balaam, Go with the men. But only the word that I speak to you, it you shall speak. And Balaam went with the leaders of Balak.
Num 22:36 And when Balak heard that Balaam had come, and had gone out to meet him, to a city of Moab which is on the border of Arnon, which is in the outermost border,
Num 22:37 then Balak said to Balaam, Sending, did I not send to you, to call for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I not truly able to honor you?
Num 22:38 And Balaam said to Balak, Behold, I have come to you. Now am I able to speak anything at all? The word which God puts in my mouth, that I will speak.
Num 22:39 And Balaam went with Balak. And they came to Kirjath-huzoth.
Num 22:40 And Balak sacrificed oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam and to the leaders who were with him.
Num 22:41 And it happened in the morning, and Balak took Balaam and caused him to go up to the high places of Baal. And from there he saw the edge of the people.

Numbers 21

Num 21:6 And Jehovah sent fiery serpents among the people; and they bit the people, and many people of Israel died.
Num 21:7 And the people came in to Moses and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against Jehovah, and against you. Pray to Jehovah, and He shall turn the serpent away from us. And Moses prayed on behalf of the people.
Num 21:8 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, Make yourself a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that when anyone is bitten, when he sees it, he shall live.

Num 21:11 And they pulled up stakes from Oboth, and camped in Ijeabarim, in the wilderness that is before Moab, toward the rising of the sun.
Num 21:12 From there they pulled up stakes and camped in the valley of Zered.
Num 21:13 From there they pulled up stakes and camped beyond Arnon, which is in the wilderness that comes out of the border of the Amorite; for Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorite;
Num 21:14 therefore, it is said in the Book of the Wars of Jehovah: Waheb in Suphah, the torrents of Arnon,
Num 21:15 and the slope of the torrent-beds that turn down toward the site of Ar, and lean on the border of Moab.
Num 21:16 And from there they went to Beer; that is the well of which Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, Gather the people and I will give water to them.
Num 21:17 Then Israel sang this song: Spring up, O well, sing to it;
Num 21:18 The well which the rulers dug, which the nobles of the people dug with their staves, at the word of the Lawgiver. And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah.
Num 21:19 And from Mattanah they went to Nahaliel; and from Nahaliel to Bamoth;
Num 21:20 and from Bamoth in the valley which is in the field of Moab to the top of Pisgah, and looking toward the wilderness.
Num 21:21 And Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,
Num 21:22 Let me pass through your land; we will not turn into a field or into a vineyard; we will not drink waters of a well; we will go in the king’s highway until we have passed over your border.
Num 21:23 And Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his border. And Sihon gathered all his people and went out to meet Israel in the wilderness, and they came to Jahaz and fought against Israel.
Num 21:24 And Israel struck him by the mouth of the sword and seized his land, from Arnon to Jabbok, to the sons of Ammon. For the border of the sons of Ammon was strong.
Num 21:25 And Israel took all these cities. And Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorite, in Heshbon and in all its daughter villages.
Num 21:26 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon king of the Amorites. And he had fought against the former king of Moab and had taken his land out of his hand, to Arnon.
Num 21:27 On account of this the parable speakers say, Come to Heshbon! Let the city of Sihon be built and established!
Num 21:28 For a fire has gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon; it has consumed Ar of Moab, the lords of the high places of Arnon.
Num 21:29 Woe to you, Moab! You are undone, O people of Chemosh! He has given his sons as fugitives and his daughters into captivity, to Sihon king of the Amorites.
Num 21:30 We have cast them down; Heshbon has perished, even to Dibon; and we have ravaged even to Nophah, which is to Medeba.
Num 21:31 And Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.
Num 21:32 And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took its villages and drove out the Amorite who was there.
Num 21:33 And they turned and went the way of Bashan. And Og king of Bashan came out to meet them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
Num 21:34 And Jehovah said to Moses, Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people and his land. And you shall do to him as you have done to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.
Num 21:35 And they struck him and his sons and all his people until he did not have a remnant left. And they seized his land.

Numbers 20

Num 20:1 And the sons of Israel, even the whole congregation, came into the wilderness of Zin in the first month; and the people remained in Kadesh. And Miriam died there, and was buried there.

Num 20:8 Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, you and your brother Aaron. And speak to the rock before their eyes. And it shall give forth its water; and you shall bring water out of the rock to them; so you shall water the congregation and their animals.
Num 20:9 And Moses took the rod from before Jehovah, as He commanded him.
Num 20:10 And Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation before the rock. And he said to them, Hear now, you rebels, shall we bring forth water to you out of this rock?
Num 20:11 And Moses lifted up his hand and smote the rock with his rod twice; and much water came out; and the congregation and their animals drank.
Num 20:12 And Jehovah said to Moses and Aaron, Because you did not believe in Me, to sanctify Me before the eyes of the sons of Israel, therefore you shall not bring in this congregation to the land which I have given to them.
Num 20:13 These are the Waters of Strife, because the sons of Israel contended with Jehovah, and He was sanctified upon them.
Num 20:14 And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: So says your brother Israel, You surely have known all the travail which has found us;
Num 20:15 that our fathers went down to Egypt, and we lived in Egypt many days, and the Egyptians did evil to us and to our fathers.
Num 20:16 And we cried to Jehovah, and He heard our voice, and sent a messenger, and is bringing us out of Egypt; and, behold, we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border.
Num 20:17 Please let us pass over, through your land; we shall not pass over through a field, nor through a vineyard, nor shall we drink water of a well; we shall go along the king’s highway. We will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left, until we have passed your border.
Num 20:18 And Edom said to him, You shall not pass through me, lest I come out with the sword against you.
Num 20:19 And the sons of Israel said to him, We shall go in the highway; and if we drink of your waters, our cattle and us, then I shall give their price. Only let me pass through on my feet; there shall be no speech.
Num 20:20 And he said, You shall not pass through. And Edom came out against him with many people, and with a strong hand.

Num 20:23 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and Aaron in Mount Hor, on the edge of the land of Edom, saying,
Num 20:24 Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not go into the land which I have given to the sons of Israel, because you rebelled against My mouth at the Waters of Strife.
Num 20:25 Take Aaron and his son Eleazar, and cause them to go up to Mount Hor;
Num 20:26 and strip Aaron of his garments, and you shall put them on his son Eleazar. And Aaron shall be gathered and shall die there.
Num 20:27 And Moses did as Jehovah had commanded; and they went up to Mount Hor before the eyes of all the congregation.
Num 20:28 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and clothed his son Eleazar with them. And Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. And Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain.

Numbers 19

Num 19:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Num 19:2 This is the statute of the law which Jehovah has commanded, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel, that they bring you a red heifer, without blemish, in which there is no blemish, on which no yoke ever came.
Num 19:3 And you shall give her to Eleazar the priest, and she shall be brought forth outside the camp; and she shall be slaughtered before his face.
Num 19:4 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and shall sprinkle of her blood toward the front of the tabernacle of the congregation seven times.

Num 19:12 He shall cleanse himself for it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean. And if he does not cleanse himself on the third day, then on the seventh day he shall not be clean.
Num 19:13 Anyone who touches the dead body, the body of a man who dies, and does not cleanse himself, he shall have defiled the tabernacle of Jehovah; and that person shall be cut off from Israel, for the water of impurity shall not be sprinkled upon him.

Num 18:8 And Jehovah spoke to Aaron, saying, And I, behold, I have given to you the charge of My heave offerings, of all the dedicated things of the sons of Israel. I have given them to you for the anointing, and to your sons, by a never ending statute.
Num 18:9 This shall be yours of the most holy things, from the fire: every offering of theirs, even every food offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every guilt offering of theirs, which they may render to Me; it shall be most holy to you, and to your sons.
Num 18:10 You shall eat it in the Holy of Holies; every male shall eat it; it shall be holy to you.
Num 18:11 And this is yours, the heave offering of their gift with all the wave offerings of the sons of Israel. I have given them to you, and to your sons, and to your daughters with you, by a never ending statute; every clean one in your house shall eat it.

Num 18:16 And their redeemed ones, from a month old, you shall redeem with your valuation of silver, five shekels, by the shekel of the sanctuary; it is twenty gerahs.
Num 18:17 But the firstling of an ox, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, you shall not redeem; they are holy. You shall sprinkle their blood on the altar, and you shall burn their fat as incense, a fire offering of soothing fragrance to Jehovah.

Num 18:19 All the heave offerings of the holy things which the sons of Israel shall lift up to Jehovah, I have given to you and to your sons, and to your daughters with you, by a never ending statute, a covenant of salt, it shall be forever before Jehovah to you and to your seed with you.
Num 18:20 And Jehovah said to Aaron, You shall have no inheritance in their land, nor shall you have any portion among them; I am your portion and your inheritance among the sons of Israel.
Num 18:21 And, behold, I have given all the tithe in Israel to the sons of Levi for an inheritance, in return for their service which they are serving, the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Num 18:22 And the sons of Israel shall not come near to the tabernacle of the congregation any more, lest they bear sin, and die.
Num 18:23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity; it shall be a never ending statute throughout your generations, that in the midst of the sons of Israel they shall have no inheritance;
Num 18:24 but the tithes of the sons of Israel which they shall lift up to Jehovah, a heave offering, I have given to the Levites for inheritance; therefore I have said to them, They shall have no inheritance among the sons of Israel.
Num 18:25 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 18:26 And you shall say to the Levites; and you shall speak to them, When you take the tithe from the sons of Israel, which I have given to you from them, for your inheritance, then you shall lift from it a heave offering of Jehovah, a tithe of the tithe.
Num 18:27 And your heave offering shall be counted to you as grain from the threshing floor, and as fullness from the winepress.
Num 18:28 So you also shall lift up the heave offering of Jehovah from all your tithes which you receive from the sons of Israel. And you shall give from it the heave offering of Jehovah to Aaron the priest.
Num 18:29 You shall lift up the whole heave offering of Jehovah out of all your gifts, out of all its fat, its holy part, out of it.
Num 18:30 And you shall say to them, When you lift up its fat out of it, then it shall be counted to the Levites as increase of a threshing floor, and as increase of a winepress.
Num 18:31 And you shall eat it in every place, you and your households, for it is your reward in return for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation.
Num 18:32 And you shall bear no sin because of it, since you have lifted up from it the best of it. And you shall not profane the holy things of the sons of Israel so that you may not die.

Numbers 17

Num 17:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 17:2 Speak to the sons of Israel, and take from each of them a rod, for a father’s house, from all their rulers, for the house of their fathers, twelve rods. You shall write the name of each on his rod.
Num 17:3 And you shall write Aaron’s name on the staff of the tribe of Levi; for one rod shall be for the head of their fathers’ house.
Num 17:4 And you shall place them in the tabernacle of the congregation, before the testimony, where I shall meet with you.
Num 17:5 And it shall be that the man’s rod which I choose shall blossom. And I shall cause the murmurings of the sons of Israel, which they are murmuring against you, to cease from Me.
Num 17:6 And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel, and all their rulers gave to him one rod for each ruler, one rod for a ruler, for their fathers’ house, twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among the rods.
Num 17:7 And Moses placed the rods before Jehovah, in the tabernacle of the testimony.
Num 17:8 And it happened on the next day, Moses went into the tabernacle of the testimony, and, behold! The rod of Aaron for the house of Levi had budded, and put forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and bore ripe almonds.
Num 17:9 And Moses brought out all the rods from before Jehovah to all the sons of Israel. And they looked, and each one took his rod.
Num 17:10 And Jehovah said to Moses, Put back the rod of Aaron, before the testimony, to be kept as a token to the sons of rebellion. And you shall end their murmurings off Me; and they shall not die.
Num 17:11 And Moses did as Jehovah had commanded him; so he did.
Num 17:12 And the sons of Israel spoke to Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.
Num 17:13 Anyone who draws near to the tabernacle of Jehovah shall die; shall we be consumed to die?

Numbers 16

Num 16:1 And Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, took also Dathan and Abiram the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, the sons of Reuben;
Num 16:2 and they rose up before Moses, with certain of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty rulers of the congregation, elect men of the assembly, men of name.
Num 16:3 And they were assembled against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, You presume too much! For all the congregation, all of them are holy, and Jehovah is among them. Why then do you lift up yourselves above the assembly of Jehovah?
Num 16:4 And Moses heard and fell on his face.
Num 16:5 And he spoke to Korah, and to all his company, saying, In the morning Jehovah will know who are His, and him who is holy, and shall cause him to come near Him; even him whom He may choose, He will cause to come near to Him.
Num 16:6 Do this: take fire-pans for yourselves, Korah, and all his company,
Num 16:7 and put fire in them, and put incense on them before Jehovah tomorrow; and it shall be, the man whom Jehovah chooses, he shall be the holy one. You take too much, sons of Levi!
Num 16:8 And Moses said to Korah, Hear now, you sons of Levi,
Num 16:9 is it but a small thing to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel to bring you near to Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of Jehovah, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them?
Num 16:10 Yea, He has brought you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi, with you. And will you seek the priesthood also?
Num 16:11 Therefore, you and all your company that have gathered against Jehovah, What is Aaron that you murmur against him?
Num 16:12 And Moses sent to call for Dathan and for Abiram, the sons of Eliab; and they said, We will not come up.
Num 16:13 Is it a small thing that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, but must you seizing also seize dominion over us?
Num 16:14 Yea, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance in fields and vineyards; will you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up!
Num 16:15 And Moses was very angry, and said to Jehovah, Do not respect their offering; I have not taken one ass from them, nor have I done evil to one of them.
Num 16:16 And Moses said to Korah, You and all your company, you be there before Jehovah, you and they, and Aaron tomorrow.
Num 16:17 And each one take his fire-pan, and you shall put incense on them, and shall offer before Jehovah, each his fire-pan, two hundred and fifty fire-pans; even you and Aaron, each his fire-pan.
Num 16:18 And they each took his fire-pan, and put fire on them, and lay incense on them, and they stood at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, with Moses and Aaron.
Num 16:19 And Korah assembled all the congregation against them, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the glory of Jehovah was seen by all the congregation.
Num 16:20 And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Num 16:21 Separate yourselves from the midst of this company, and I will consume them in a moment.
Num 16:22 And they fell on their faces, and said, O God, God of the spirits of all flesh; shall one man sin, and will You be angry with all the congregation?
Num 16:23 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 16:24 Speak to the congregation, saying, You get away from around the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
Num 16:25 And Moses rose up and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel went after him.
Num 16:26 And he spoke to the congregation, saying, Please turn away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything that they have, lest you be consumed in all their sins.
Num 16:27 And they got away from around the tent of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram; and Dathan and Abiram came out, standing at the door of their tents, and their wives, their sons, and their infants.
Num 16:28 And Moses said, By this you shall know that Jehovah has sent me to do all these works, and that not from my own heart.
Num 16:29 If these die according to the death of all men, and are visited according to the visitation of all men, then Jehovah has not sent me.
Num 16:30 And if Jehovah makes a new thing, and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them, and all that they have, and they go down alive to Sheol, then you shall know that these men have despised Jehovah.
Num 16:31 And it happened, as he made an end of speaking all these words, the ground which was under them split apart,
Num 16:32 and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them, and their houses, and all the men who were for Korah, and all their possessions.
Num 16:33 And they went down, they and all that they had, alive to Sheol, and the earth covered over them; and they perished from the midst of the assembly.
Num 16:34 And all Israel who were around them fled at their cry; for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up.
Num 16:35 And fire came forth from Jehovah and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered the incense.
Num 16:36 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 16:37 Speak to Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest, and he shall lift up the fire-pans from the midst of the burning, and shall scatter the fire yonder, for they have become holy,
Num 16:38 the fire-pans of these sinners against their own souls. And they shall make of them spreadout plates, a covering for the altar, for they have brought them near before Jehovah, and they are holy. And they shall become a sign to the sons of Israel.
Num 16:39 And Eleazar the priest took the bronze fire-pans, which they who were burned had brought near, and they spread them out, a covering for the altar,
Num 16:40 a memorial to the sons of Israel, so that an alien who is not of the seed of Aaron shall not draw near to offer incense before Jehovah, and shall not be as Korah, and as his company; as Jehovah had spoken by the hand of Moses to him.
Num 16:41 And all the congregation of the sons of Israel murmured on the next day against Moses and against Aaron, saying, You have killed the people of Jehovah.
Num 16:42 And it happened, as the company was called together against Moses and against Aaron, that they turned toward the tabernacle of the congregation. And, behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of Jehovah appeared!
Num 16:43 And Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Num 16:44 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Num 16:45 Get away from the midst of this company, and I shall consume them in a moment; and they fell on their faces.
Num 16:46 And Moses said to Aaron, Take the fire-pan, and put fire on it from the altar, and lay on incense, and go, hurry to the congregation, and atone for them, for the wrath has gone out from the presence of Jehovah; the plague has begun.
Num 16:47 And Aaron did as Moses had spoken, and ran into the midst of the assembly. And, behold, the plague had begun among the people! And he laid on the incense and atoned for the people,
Num 16:48 and stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stayed.
Num 16:49 And those who died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died for the matter of Korah.
Num 16:50 And Aaron turned back to Moses, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation; and the plague was stayed.

Leviticus 27

Lev 27:1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Lev 27:2 Speak to the sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, When a man makes an extraordinary vow by your evaluation, the persons shall be Jehovah’s.
Lev 27:3 And your evaluation shall be of the male from a son of twenty years even until a son of sixty years; then your evaluation shall be fifty shekels of silver by the shekel of the sanctuary.
Lev 27:4 And if it is a female, then your evaluation shall be thirty shekels.
Lev 27:5 And if from a son of five years to a son of twenty years, then your evaluation shall be twenty shekels for the male and ten shekels for the female.
Lev 27:6 And if a son of a month even to a son of five years, then your evaluation shall be five shekels of silver for the male and three shekels of silver for the female.
Lev 27:7 And if from a son of sixty years and above, if a male, then your evaluation shall be fifteen shekels and for a female ten shekels.
Lev 27:8 But if he is too poor for your evaluation, then he shall be made to stand before the priest, and the priest shall value him; the priest shall value him according to the reach of him who vowed.
Lev 27:9 And if it is an animal of which they bring an offering to Jehovah, all that one gives of it to Jehovah is holy.
Lev 27:10 He shall not replace it, or change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good. And if he shall at all change animal for animal, then both it and that for which it is changed shall be holy.
Lev 27:11 And if it is any unclean animal, or one which they may not bring as an offering to Jehovah, then he shall make the animal stand before the priest.
Lev 27:12 And the priest shall value it, whether it is good or bad; as you the priest value it, so it shall be.
Lev 27:13 But if he really redeems it, then he shall add its fifth to your evaluation.
Lev 27:14 And when a man sanctifies his house as a holy thing to Jehovah, then the priest shall value it, whether good or bad. As the priest values it, so it shall stand.
Lev 27:15 And if he who is sanctifying shall redeem the house, then he shall add a fifth of the silver of its valuation, and it shall become his.
Lev 27:16 And if a man sanctifies a field of his property to Jehovah, then your valuation shall be according to its seed; a homer of barley seed at fifty shekels of silver.
Lev 27:17 If he shall sanctify his field from the year of jubilee, it shall stand according to your valuation.
Lev 27:18 And if he shall sanctify his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall count to him the silver according to the years which are left, to the year of the jubilee. And it shall be deducted from your estimation.
Lev 27:19 And if he sanctifying the field really will redeem it, then he shall add a fifth of the silver of your evaluation to it, and it shall rise to become his.
Lev 27:20 And if he does not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it is not to be redeemed any more.
Lev 27:21 And the field shall be holy to Jehovah when it goes out in the jubilee, as a field which is devoted. It shall be a possession to the priest.
Lev 27:22 And if he should devote a field of his purchase, which is not of the fields of his possession,
Lev 27:23 then the priest shall count to him the amount of your valuation to the year of jubilee. And he shall give your valuation in that day, a holy thing to Jehovah.
Lev 27:24 In the year of jubilee the field shall return to him from whom he bought it, to him who owns it in the land.
Lev 27:25 And all your valuation shall be by the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.
Lev 27:26 However, no man shall dedicate a firstling, which is first-born to Jehovah among animals, whether ox or sheep; it is Jehovah’s.
Lev 27:27 And if it is among the unclean animals, then he shall ransom it at your valuation, and he shall add its fifth to it. And if it is not redeemed, then it shall be sold at your evaluation.
Lev 27:28 But any devoted thing which a man devotes to Jehovah from all which belongs to him, of man or of animal, or of the field of his possession, it shall not be sold nor redeemed. Every devoted thing to Jehovah is most holy.
Lev 27:29 No devoted thing which is dedicated by man shall be ransomed, dying it shall die.
Lev 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, of the seed of the land, of the fruit of the tree, shall be Jehovah’s; it is holy to Jehovah.
Lev 27:31 And if a man really redeems any of his tithes, he shall add its fifth to it.
Lev 27:32 And all the tithe of the herd and of the flock, all that passes under the rod, a tenth shall be holy to Jehovah;
Lev 27:33 he shall not search whether it is good or bad, nor shall he change it. And if he at all changes it, then it shall be that it and its substitute shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
Lev 27:34 These are the commands which Jehovah has commanded Moses for the sons of Israel, on Mount Sinai.
