Jos 16:1 And the lot of the sons of Joseph went out from the Jordan at Jericho, to the waters of Jericho eastward, to the wilderness which went from Jericho to the hills of Bethel.
Jos 16:2 And it went from Bethel to Luz, and passed on to the border of the Archites, to Ataroth;
Jos 16:3 and went down westward to the border of the Japhletites, to the border of Beth-horon the lower, and to Gezer, and its boundary line was at the sea.
Jos 16:4 And Manasseh and Ephraim, the sons of Joseph, inherited.

Jos 15:1 And the lot for the tribe of the sons of Judah for their families was to the border of Edom, the wilderness of Zin southward, in the extreme south.

Jos 15:7 And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and northward looking toward Gilgal, which is opposite to the ascent of Adummim, which is the south side of the torrent; and the border passed to the waters of En-shemesh, and its boundary line was at En-rogel.
Jos 15:8 And the border went up to the valley of the son of Hinnom, to the side of the Jebusite on the south (it is Jerusalem) and the border went up to the top of the mountain which is before the valley of Hinnom westward at the far end of the Valley of the Giants northward.

Jos 15:13 And he gave a portion to Caleb the son of Jephunneh among the sons of Judah, according to the command of Jehovah to Joshua: the City of Arba, the father of Anak; it is Hebron.
Jos 15:14 And Caleb dispossessed from there the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, Ahiman, and Talmai, the sons of Anak.
Jos 15:15 And he went up there to the ones living in Debir; and the name of Debir formerly was the City of Sepher.
Jos 15:16 And Caleb said, He who strikes the City of Sepher, and captures it, I shall give my daughter Achsah to him for a wife.
Jos 15:17 And Othniel, the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, captured it. And He gave his daughter Achsah to him for a wife.
Jos 15:18 And it happened, as she came, that she persuaded him to ask from her father a field. And she dismounted from the ass, and Caleb said to her, What do you desire?
Jos 15:19 And she said, Give a blessing to me. You have given me the land of the south, then you shall give to me springs of water. And he gave to her the upper springs and the lower springs.

Joshua 14

Jos 14:1 And these are they of the sons of Israel who inherited in the land of Canaan, whom Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the sons of Israel caused to inherit.
Jos 14:2 Their inheritance was by lot, as Jehovah commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and the half tribe;
Jos 14:3 for Moses had given the inheritance of two of the tribes and the half tribe, beyond the Jordan; and he did not give any inheritance to the Levites among them.
Jos 14:4 For the sons of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim. And they did not give a portion to the Levites in the land, except cities to live in, with the open land around them for their livestock and for their substance,
Jos 14:5 as Jehovah commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did, and they allotted the land.
Jos 14:6 And the sons of Judah came near to Joshua in Gilgal, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite said to him, You know the word that Jehovah spoke to Moses the man of God as to me and as to you in Kadesh-barnea.
Jos 14:7 I was a son of forty years when Moses the servant of Jehovah sent me from Kadesh-barnea to spy out the land. And I brought him back word as it was in my heart.
Jos 14:8 But my brothers who went up with me caused the heart of the people to melt, yet I fully followed after Jehovah my God.
Jos 14:9 And Moses swore in that day, saying, Surely the land on which your foot has trodden shall be an inheritance for you and for your sons forever, because you have fully followed after Jehovah my God.
Jos 14:10 And now, behold, Jehovah has kept me alive, as He said, these forty five years since Jehovah spoke this word to Moses, when Israel went in the wilderness. And now, behold, today I am a son of eighty five years;
Jos 14:11 yet I am as strong today as in the day Moses sent me. As my strength was then, so is my strength now for war, both to go out and to come in.
Jos 14:12 And now, give to me this mountain, of which Jehovah spoke in that day, for you heard in that day how the sons of Anak were there, and great walled cities. If Jehovah shall be with me, then I shall dispossess them, as Jehovah has spoken.
Jos 14:13 And Joshua blessed him, and he gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for an inheritance.
Jos 14:14 Therefore, Hebron has belonged to Caleb the son of Jephunneh, the Kenizzite, for an inheritance to this day, because he fully followed after Jehovah the God of Israel.
Jos 14:15 And the name of Hebron before was City of Arba; that one was a great man among the Anakim. And the land had rest from war.

Joshua 13

Jos 13:1 And Joshua was old, going on in days. And Jehovah said to him, You have become aged, you are far along in days; yet very much land remains to be possessed.
Jos 13:2 This is the land that still remains: all the regions of the Philistines, and all Geshuri,
Jos 13:3 from Shihor which fronts on Egypt, and to the border of Ekron northward (it is counted to the Canaanites) five lords of the Philistines, of Gaza, of Ashdod, of Ashkelon, of Gath, and of Ekron; also the Avim.
Jos 13:4 From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah which belongs to the Sidonians; to Aphek, to the border of the Amorites;
Jos 13:5 and the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to the entering to Hamath;
Jos 13:6 all the ones living in the hills, from Lebanon to the burning waters; all the Sidonians; I will dispossess them before the sons of Israel: Only, cause it to fall to Israel for an inheritance, as I have commanded you.
Jos 13:7 Now, then, divide this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh.
Jos 13:8 With him the Reubenites, and the Gadites received their inheritance, which Moses gave to them beyond the Jordan eastward, as Moses the servant of Jehovah has given to them;
Jos 13:9 from Aroer on the lip of the river Arnon, and the city which is in the middle of the valley, and all the plain of Medeba, to Dibon;
Jos 13:10 and all the cities of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, to the border of the sons of Ammon;
Jos 13:11 and Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites, and of the Maachathite, and all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Salcah;
Jos 13:12 all the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei; he remained of the remnant of the giants. And Moses struck them and dispossessed them.
Jos 13:13 But the sons of Israel did not dispossess the Geshurites and the Maachathite, but Geshur and Maachath live in the midst of Israel until today.
Jos 13:14 Only, he has not given an inheritance to the tribe of Levi. The fire offerings of Jehovah the God of Israel are its inheritance, as He has spoken to it.
Jos 13:15 And Moses gave to the tribe of the sons of Reuben, for their families;
Jos 13:16 and their border was from Aroer on the lip of the river Arnon, and the city which is in the middle of the valley, and all the plain by Medeba;
Jos 13:17 Heshbon, and all its cities in the tableland; Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and Beth-baal-meon;

Jos 13:19 and Kirjath-aim, and Sibmah, and Zareth-shahar in the mountain of the valley;
Jos 13:20 and Beth-peor, and the Slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth;
Jos 13:21 and all the cities of the tableland, and all the kingdom of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses struck with the rulers of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, chiefs of Sihon, those living in the land.
Jos 13:22 And the sons of Israel killed Balaam the son of Beor, the one divining, with the sword, among their slain.
Jos 13:23 And the border of the sons of Reuben was from the Jordan, and its border. This was the inheritance of the sons of Reuben for their families, the cities and their villages.
Jos 13:24 And Moses gave to the tribe of Gad, to the sons of Gad, for their families:
Jos 13:25 And their border was to Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half of the land of the sons of Ammon, to Aroer, which is before Rabbah;
Jos 13:26 and from Heshbon to Ramath-mizpeh, and Betonim, and from Mahanaim to the border of Debir;
Jos 13:27 and in the valley, Beth-aram, and Beth-nimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon the king of Heshbon; the Jordan and its border, to the edge of the Sea of Chinnereth, beyond the Jordan, eastward.
Jos 13:28 This is the inheritance of the sons of Gad, for their families, the cities and their villages.
Jos 13:29 And Moses gave inheritance to the half tribe of Manasseh. And it was to the half of the tribe of the sons of Manasseh, for their families:
Jos 13:30 and their border was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og the king of Bashan, and all the small towns of Jair in Bashan, sixty cities;
Jos 13:31 and the half of Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, belonged to the sons of Machir, the son of Manasseh, to the half of the sons of Machir for their families.
Jos 13:32 These are they whom Moses caused to inherit in the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan, opposite Jericho, eastward.
Jos 13:33 But Moses did not give an inheritance to the tribe of Levi. Jehovah the God of Israel Himself is their inheritance, as He has spoken to them.

Joshua 12

Jos 12:1 And these are the kings of the land whom the sons of Israel struck, and they seized their land beyond the Jordan, at the sunrising, from the river Arnon to Mount Hermon, and all the Arabah eastward:
Jos 12:2 Sihon the king of the Amorites who lived in Heshbon, and ruled from Aroer, which is on the bank of the river Arnon, and from its valley floor, and half Gilead, even to the river Jabbok, the border of the sons of Ammon;
Jos 12:3 and from the Arabah to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and to the sea of the Arabah, even the Salt Sea, eastward, the way to Beth-jeshimoth; and on the south under the Slopes of Pisgah;
Jos 12:4 and the border of Og the king of Bashan, of the rest of the giants, who lived at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,

Jos 12:7 And these are the kings of the land whom Joshua and the sons of Israel struck beyond the Jordan westward, from Baal-gad in the Valley of Lebanon even to Mount Halak that goes up to Seir, which Joshua gave to the tribes of Israel for a possession according to their divisions;
Jos 12:8 in the mountains, and in the Lowlands, and in the Arabah, and in the slopes, and in the wilderness, and in the Negeb; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:

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 25:9 And those that died by the plague were twenty four thousand.
Num 25:10 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
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.
Num 25:12 Therefore say, Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace.
Num 25:13 And it shall be to him, and to his seed after him, the covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and atoned for the sons of Israel.
Num 25:14 And the name of the man of Israel who was smitten, who was struck with the woman of Midian, was Zimri, the son of Salu, ruler of a father’s house of the Simeonites.

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 24:3 And he took up his parable and said, The saying of Balaam the son of Beor, and the saying of the man whose eyes have been opened;
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 24:7 He makes water flow from his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters; his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom exalted.

Num 24:10 And Balak’s anger glowed against Balaam, and he struck his hands together. And Balak said to Balaam, I called you to curse my enemies; and, behold, you have altogether blessed them these three times.
Num 24:11 And now, flee to your place. I said to honor you with great honor, but, behold, Jehovah has kept you back from honor.
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 24:25 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 23:4 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.

Numbers 22

Num 22:1 And the sons of Israel pulled up stakes and camped on the plains of Moab, beyond the Jordan, by Jericho.
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.

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 21:18 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 21:27 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 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 20:14 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 20:24 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.
