The Bible Online: Book 04 Numbers: 04:018:001 - 04:036:013

 

04:018:001 And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy
father's house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the
sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the
iniquity of your priesthood.

04:018:002 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy
father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto
thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee
shall minister before the tabernacle of witness.

04:018:003 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the
tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the
sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.

04:018:004 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the
tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the
tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.

04:018:005 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge
of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the
children of Israel.

04:018:006 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from
among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift
for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:018:007 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest's
office for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and
ye shall serve: I have given your priest's office unto you as
a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be
put to death.

04:018:008 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee
the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things
of the children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by
reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for
ever.

04:018:009 This shall be thine of the most holy things, reserved from the
fire: every oblation of their's, every meat offering of
their's, and every sin offering of their's, and every trespass
offering of their's which they shall render unto me, shall be
most holy for thee and for thy sons.

04:018:010 In the most holy place shalt thou eat it; every male shall eat
it: it shall be holy unto thee.

04:018:011 And this is thine; the heave offering of their gift, with all
the wave offerings of the children of Israel: I have given
them unto thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with
thee, by a statute for ever: every one that is clean in thy
house shall eat of it.

04:018:012 All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of
the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto
the LORD, them have I given thee.

04:018:013 And whatsoever is first ripe in the land, which they shall
bring unto the LORD, shall be thine; every one that is clean
in thine house shall eat of it.

04:018:014 Every thing devoted in Israel shall be thine.

04:018:015 Every thing that openeth the matrix in all flesh, which they
bring unto the LORD, whether it be of men or beasts, shall be
thine: nevertheless the firstborn of man shalt thou surely
redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem.

04:018:016 And those that are to be redeemed from a month old shalt thou
redeem, according to thine estimation, for the money of five
shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, which is twenty
gerahs.

04:018:017 But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or
the firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they are holy:
thou shalt sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shalt burn
their fat for an offering made by fire, for a sweet savour
unto the LORD.

04:018:018 And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave breast and
as the right shoulder are thine.

04:018:019 All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children
of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons
and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: it is a
covenant of salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy
seed with thee.

04:018:020 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance
in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I
am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of
Israel.

04:018:021 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth
in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they
serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:018:022 Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the
tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.

04:018:023 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: it shall be
a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the
children of Israel they have no inheritance.

04:018:024 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as
an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites
to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the
children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

04:018:025 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:018:026 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take
of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you
from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an
heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the
tithe.

04:018:027 And this your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as
though it were the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the
fulness of the winepress.

04:018:028 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of
all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel;
and ye shall give thereof the LORD's heave offering to Aaron
the priest.

04:018:029 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of
the LORD, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part
thereof out of it.

04:018:030 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the
best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the
Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the
increase of the winepress.

04:018:031 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households:
for it is your reward for your service in the tabernacle of
the congregation.

04:018:032 And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved
from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy
things of the children of Israel, lest ye die.

04:019:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:019:002 This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath
commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that
they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no
blemish, and upon which never came yoke:

04:019:003 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may
bring her forth without the camp, and one shall slay her
before his face:

04:019:004 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his
finger, and sprinkle of her blood directly before the
tabernacle of the congregation seven times:

04:019:005 And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and her
flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:

04:019:006 And the priest shall take cedar wood, and hyssop, and scarlet,
and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.

04:019:007 Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his
flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and
the priest shall be unclean until the even.

04:019:008 And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and
bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.

04:019:009 And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the
heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and
it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of
Israel for a water of separation: it is a purification for
sin.

04:019:010 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his
clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto
the children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth
among them, for a statute for ever.

04:019:011 He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean
seven days.

04:019:012 He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the
seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself
the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.

04:019:013 Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and
purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD;
and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water
of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean;
his uncleanness is yet upon him.

04:019:014 This is the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come
into the tent, and all that is in the tent, shall be unclean
seven days.

04:019:015 And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it,
is unclean.

04:019:016 And whosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the
open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave,
shall be unclean seven days.

04:019:017 And for an unclean person they shall take of the ashes of the
burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water shall
be put thereto in a vessel:

04:019:018 And a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip it in the water,
and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and
upon the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a
bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave:

04:019:019 And the clean person shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the
third day, and on the seventh day: and on the seventh day he
shall purify himself, and wash his clothes, and bathe himself
in water, and shall be clean at even.

04:019:020 But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify
himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the
congregation, because he hath defiled the sanctuary of the
LORD: the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon
him; he is unclean.

04:019:021 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that
sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and
he that toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean
until even.

04:019:022 And whatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean;
and the soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.

04:020:001 Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation,
into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people
abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.

04:020:002 And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered
themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.

04:020:003 And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God
that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!

04:020:004 And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into
this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?

04:020:005 And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to
bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or
of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any
water to drink.

04:020:006 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly
unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they
fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto
them.

04:020:007 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:020:008 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and
Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their
eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring
forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the
congregation and their beasts drink.

04:020:009 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded
him.

04:020:010 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before
the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we
fetch you water out of this rock?

04:020:011 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the
rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the
congregation drank, and their beasts also.

04:020:012 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed
me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel,
therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land
which I have given them.

04:020:013 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel
strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.

04:020:014 And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom,
Thus saith thy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail
that hath befallen us:

04:020:015 How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we have dwelt in
Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians vexed us, and our
fathers:

04:020:016 And when we cried unto the LORD, he heard our voice, and sent
an angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold,
we are in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy border:

04:020:017 Let us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not
pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither
will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the
king's high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the
left, until we have passed thy borders.

04:020:018 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come
out against thee with the sword.

04:020:019 And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by the
high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, then I
will pay for it: I will only, without doing anything else, go
through on my feet.

04:020:020 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out
against him with much people, and with a strong hand.

04:020:021 Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border:
wherefore Israel turned away from him.

04:020:022 And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation,
journeyed from Kadesh, and came unto mount Hor.

04:020:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the
coast of the land of Edom, saying,

04:020:024 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not
enter into the land which I have given unto the children of
Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of
Meribah.

04:020:025 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount
Hor:

04:020:026 And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his
son: and Aaron shall be gathered unto his people, and shall
die there.

04:020:027 And Moses did as the LORD commanded: and they went up into
mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation.

04:020:028 And Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon
Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there in the top of the mount:
and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount.

04:020:029 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they
mourned for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of Israel.

04:021:001 And when king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south,
heard tell that Israel came by the way of the spies; then he
fought against Israel, and took some of them prisoners.

04:021:002 And Israel vowed a vow unto the LORD, and said, If thou wilt
indeed deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly
destroy their cities.

04:021:003 And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered
up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their
cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah.

04:021:004 And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea,
to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was
much discouraged because of the way.

04:021:005 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore
have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness?
for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our
soul loatheth this light bread.

04:021:006 And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they
bit the people; and much people of Israel died.

04:021:007 Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned,
for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray
unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And
Moses prayed for the people.

04:021:008 And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and
set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one
that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.

04:021:009 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and
it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he
beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

04:021:010 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth.

04:021:011 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in
the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising.

04:021:012 From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared.

04:021:013 From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of
Arnon, which is in the wilderness that cometh out of the
coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon is the border of Moab,
between Moab and the Amorites.

04:021:014 Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD, What
he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,

04:021:015 And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the
dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab.

04:021:016 And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof
the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I
will give them water.

04:021:017 Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto
it:

04:021:018 The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged
it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And
from the wilderness they went to Mattanah:

04:021:019 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth:

04:021:020 And from Bamoth in the valley, that is in the country of Moab,
to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon.

04:021:021 And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites,
saying,

04:021:022 Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the
fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink of the waters
of the well: but we will go along by the king's high way,
until we be past thy borders.

04:021:023 And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border:
but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out
against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and
fought against Israel.

04:021:024 And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed
his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of
Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon was strong.

04:021:025 And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the
cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages
thereof.

04:021:026 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites,
who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all
his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon.

04:021:027 Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon,
let the city of Sihon be built and prepared:

04:021:028 For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city
of Sihon: it hath consumed Ar of Moab, and the lords of the
high places of Arnon.

04:021:029 Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he
hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into
captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites.

04:021:030 We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and
we have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which reacheth unto
Medeba.

04:021:031 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.

04:021:032 And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages
thereof, and drove out the Amorites that were there.

04:021:033 And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the
king of Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people,
to the battle at Edrei.

04:021:034 And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have
delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land;
and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the
Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

04:021:035 So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until
there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land.

04:022:001 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the
plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.

04:022:002 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to
the Amorites.

04:022:003 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were
many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of
Israel.

04:022:004 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this
company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh
up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was
king of the Moabites at that time.

04:022:005 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to
Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of
his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people
come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth,
and they abide over against me:

04:022:006 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for
they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that
we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land:
for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom
thou cursest is cursed.

04:022:007 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with
the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto
Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak.

04:022:008 And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring
you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the
princes of Moab abode with Balaam.

04:022:009 And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with
thee?

04:022:010 And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of
Moab, hath sent unto me, saying,

04:022:011 Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth
the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I
shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out.

04:022:012 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou
shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed.

04:022:013 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes
of Balak, Get you into your land: for the LORD refuseth to
give me leave to go with you.

04:022:014 And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and
said, Balaam refuseth to come with us.

04:022:015 And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable
than they.

04:022:016 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the
son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from
coming unto me:

04:022:017 For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do
whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee,
curse me this people.

04:022:018 And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If
Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I
cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or
more.

04:022:019 Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that
I may know what the LORD will say unto me more.

04:022:020 And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the
men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the
word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.

04:022:021 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and
went with the princes of Moab.

04:022:022 And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of
the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he
was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

04:022:023 And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and
his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of
the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to
turn her into the way.

04:022:024 But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a
wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

04:022:025 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself
unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and
he smote her again.

04:022:026 And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow
place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to
the left.

04:022:027 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down
under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the
ass with a staff.

04:022:028 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto
Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me
these three times?

04:022:029 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I
would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill
thee.

04:022:030 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which
thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I
ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

04:022:031 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel
of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his
hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

04:022:032 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou
smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to
withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

04:022:033 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times:
unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain
thee, and saved her alive.

04:022:034 And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for
I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now
therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

04:022:035 And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men:
but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou
shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.

04:022:036 And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet
him unto a city of Moab, which is in the border of Arnon,
which is in the utmost coast.

04:022:037 And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee
to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able
indeed to promote thee to honour?

04:022:038 And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I
now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God
putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak.

04:022:039 And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth.

04:022:040 And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to
the princes that were with him.

04:022:041 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and
brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he
might see the utmost part of the people.

04:023:001 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and
prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams.

04:023:002 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam
offered on every altar a bullock and a ram.

04:023:003 And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and I
will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and
whatsoever he sheweth me I will tell thee. And he went to an
high place.

04:023:004 And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared
seven altars, and I have offered upon every altar a bullock
and a ram.

04:023:005 And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return
unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak.

04:023:006 And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt
sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab.

04:023:007 And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab
hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east,
saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

04:023:008 How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I
defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

04:023:009 For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I
behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be
reckoned among the nations.

04:023:010 Who can count the dust of Jacob, 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!

04:023:011 And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I
took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast
blessed them altogether.

04:023:012 And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that
which the LORD hath put in my mouth?

04:023:013 And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto
another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt
see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all:
and curse me them from thence.

04:023:014 And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of
Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a
ram on every altar.

04:023:015 And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering,
while I meet the LORD yonder.

04:023:016 And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and
said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus.

04:023:017 And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt
offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said
unto him, What hath the LORD spoken?

04:023:018 And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and
hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:

04:023:019 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man,
that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?
or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

04:023:020 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath
blessed; and I cannot reverse it.

04:023:021 He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen
perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the
shout of a king is among them.

04:023:022 God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength
of an unicorn.

04:023:023 Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there
any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall
be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

04:023:024 Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up
himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of
the prey, and drink the blood of the slain.

04:023:025 And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor
bless them at all.

04:023:026 But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee,
saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?

04:023:027 And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring
thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that
thou mayest curse me them from thence.

04:023:028 And Balak brought Balaam unto the top of Peor, that looketh
toward Jeshimon.

04:023:029 And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and
prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams.

04:023:030 And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bullock and a
ram on every altar.

04:024:001 And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel,
he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but
he set his face toward the wilderness.

04:024:002 And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in
his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God
came upon him.

04:024:003 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor
hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

04:024:004 He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the
vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his
eyes open:

04:024:005 How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O
Israel!

04:024:006 As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the
river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath
planted, and as cedar trees beside the waters.

04:024:007 He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall
be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and
his kingdom shall be exalted.

04:024:008 God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the
strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his
enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through
with his arrows.

04:024:009 He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who
shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and
cursed is he that curseth thee.

04:024:010 And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his
hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to
curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed
them these three times.

04:024:011 Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote
thee unto great honour; but, lo, the LORD hath kept thee back
from honour.

04:024:012 And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers
which thou sentest unto me, saying,

04:024:013 If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I
cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do either
good or bad of mine own mind; but what the LORD saith, that
will I speak?

04:024:014 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I
will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in
the latter days.

04:024:015 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor
hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

04:024:016 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the
knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the
Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

04:024:017 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not
nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre
shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab,
and destroy all the children of Sheth.

04:024:018 And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a
possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly.

04:024:019 Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall
destroy him that remaineth of the city.

04:024:020 And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and
said, Amalek was the first of the nations; but his latter end
shall be that he perish for ever.

04:024:021 And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and
said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest
in a rock.

04:024:022 Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall
carry thee away captive.

04:024:023 And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live
when God doeth this!

04:024:024 And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall
afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall
perish for ever.

04:024:025 And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place: and
Balak also went his way.

04:025:001 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit
whoredom with the daughters of Moab.

04:025:002 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods:
and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.

04:025:003 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the
LORD was kindled against Israel.

04:025:004 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the
people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that
the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

04:025:005 And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one
his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.

04:025:006 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought
unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses,
and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of
Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation.

04:025:007 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the
priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and
took a javelin in his hand;

04:025:008 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust
both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through
her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of
Israel.

04:025:009 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four
thousand.

04:025:010 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:025:011 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while
he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the
children of Israel in my jealousy.

04:025:012 Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:

04:025:013 And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the
covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous
for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel.

04:025:014 Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, even that was
slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu,
a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites.

04:025:015 And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain was
Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was head over a people, and of
a chief house in Midian.

04:025:016 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:025:017 Vex the Midianites, and smite them:

04:025:018 For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have
beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of
Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which
was slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake.

04:026:001 And it came to pass after the plague, that the LORD spake unto
Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,

04:026:002 Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of
Israel, from twenty years old and upward, throughout their
fathers' house, all that are able to go to war in Israel.

04:026:003 And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains
of Moab by Jordan near Jericho, saying,

04:026:004 Take the sum of the people, from twenty years old and upward;
as the LORD commanded Moses and the children of Israel, which
went forth out of the land of Egypt.

04:026:005 Reuben, the eldest son of Israel: the children of Reuben;
Hanoch, of whom cometh the family of the Hanochites: of Pallu,

of the Carmites.

numbered of them were forty and three thousand and seven
hundred and thirty.

04:026:008 And the sons of Pallu; Eliab.

04:026:009 And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This is
that Dathan and Abiram, which were famous in the congregation,
who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of
Korah, when they strove against the LORD:

04:026:010 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together
with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire
devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign.

04:026:011 Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.

04:026:018 These are the families of the children of Gad according to

hundred.

04:026:033 And Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, but daughters:
and the names of the daughters of Zelophehad were Mahlah, and

04:026:034 These are the families of Manasseh, and those that were

five thousand and four hundred.

04:026:051 These were the numbered of the children of Israel, six hundred
thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty.

04:026:052 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:026:053 Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance
according to the number of names.

04:026:054 To many thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to few thou
shalt give the less inheritance: to every one shall his
inheritance be given according to those that were numbered of
him.

04:026:055 Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to
the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.

04:026:056 According to the lot shall the possession thereof be divided
between many and few.

04:026:057 And these are they that were numbered of the Levites after
their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites: of
Kohath, the family of the Kohathites: of Merari, the family of

Levi, whom her mother bare to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto
Amram Aaron and Moses, and Miriam their sister.

04:026:060 And unto Aaron was born Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and
Ithamar.

04:026:061 And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire
before the LORD.

04:026:062 And those that were numbered of them were twenty and three
thousand, all males from a month old and upward: for they were
not numbered among the children of Israel, because there was
no inheritance given them among the children of Israel.

04:026:063 These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the
priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of
Moab by Jordan near Jericho.

04:026:064 But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and
Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of
Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.

04:026:065 For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the
wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb
the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

04:027:001 Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the
son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the
families of Manasseh the son of Joseph: and these are the
names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah,
and Tirzah.

04:027:002 And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest,
and before the princes and all the congregation, by the door
of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

04:027:003 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the
company of them that gathered themselves together against the
LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had
no sons.

04:027:004 Why should the name of our father be done away from among his
family, because he hath no son? Give unto us therefore a
possession among the brethren of our father.

04:027:005 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.

04:027:006 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:027:007 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely
give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's
brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father
to pass unto them.

04:027:008 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a
man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance
to pass unto his daughter.

04:027:009 And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance
unto his brethren.

04:027:010 And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance
unto his father's brethren.

04:027:011 And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his
inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his
family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the
children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD
commanded Moses.

04:027:012 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount
Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children
of Israel.

04:027:013 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto
thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered.

04:027:014 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin,
in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water
before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in
the wilderness of Zin.

04:027:015 And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,

04:027:016 Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man
over the congregation,

04:027:017 Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them,
and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that
the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no
shepherd.

04:027:018 And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun,
a man in whom is the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;

04:027:019 And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
congregation; and give him a charge in their sight.

04:027:020 And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the
congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.

04:027:021 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask
counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at
his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come
in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all
the congregation.

04:027:022 And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua,
and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the
congregation:

04:027:023 And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the
LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

04:028:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:028:002 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My
offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a
sweet savour unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in
their due season.

04:028:003 And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by
fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the
first year without spot day by day, for a continual burnt
offering.

04:028:004 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other
lamb shalt thou offer at even;

04:028:005 And a tenth part of an ephah of flour for a meat offering,
mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil.

04:028:006 It is a continual burnt offering, which was ordained in mount
Sinai for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the
LORD.

04:028:007 And the drink offering thereof shall be the fourth part of an
hin for the one lamb: in the holy place shalt thou cause the
strong wine to be poured unto the LORD for a drink offering.

04:028:008 And the other lamb shalt thou offer at even: as the meat
offering of the morning, and as the drink offering thereof,
thou shalt offer it, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet
savour unto the LORD.

04:028:009 And on the sabbath day two lambs of the first year without
spot, and two tenth deals of flour for a meat offering,
mingled with oil, and the drink offering thereof:

04:028:010 This is the burnt offering of every sabbath, beside the
continual burnt offering, and his drink offering.

04:028:011 And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt
offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven
lambs of the first year without spot;

04:028:012 And three tenth deals of flour for a meat offering, mingled
with oil, for one bullock; and two tenth deals of flour for a
meat offering, mingled with oil, for one ram;

04:028:013 And a several tenth deal of flour mingled with oil for a meat
offering unto one lamb; for a burnt offering of a sweet
savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

04:028:014 And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a
bullock, and the third part of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth
part of an hin unto a lamb: this is the burnt offering of
every month throughout the months of the year.

04:028:015 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering unto the LORD
shall be offered, beside the continual burnt offering, and his
drink offering.

04:028:016 And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the passover
of the LORD.

04:028:017 And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven
days shall unleavened bread be eaten.

04:028:018 In the first day shall be an holy convocation; ye shall do no
manner of servile work therein:

04:028:019 But ye shall offer a sacrifice made by fire for a burnt
offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, and
seven lambs of the first year: they shall be unto you without
blemish:

04:028:020 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil:
three tenth deals shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth
deals for a ram;

04:028:021 A several tenth deal shalt thou offer for every lamb,
throughout the seven lambs:

04:028:022 And one goat for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you.

04:028:023 Ye shall offer these beside the burnt offering in the morning,
which is for a continual burnt offering.

04:028:024 After this manner ye shall offer daily, throughout the seven
days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet
savour unto the LORD: it shall be offered beside the continual
burnt offering, and his drink offering.

04:028:025 And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye
shall do no servile work.

04:028:026 Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat
offering unto the LORD, after your weeks be out, ye shall have
an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work:

04:028:027 But ye shall offer the burnt offering for a sweet savour unto
the LORD; two young bullocks, one ram, seven lambs of the
first year;

04:028:028 And their meat offering of flour mingled with oil, three tenth
deals unto one bullock, two tenth deals unto one ram,

04:028:029 A several tenth deal unto one lamb, throughout the seven
lambs;

04:028:030 And one kid of the goats, to make an atonement for you.

04:028:031 Ye shall offer them beside the continual burnt offering, and
his meat offering, (they shall be unto you without blemish)
and their drink offerings.

04:029:001 And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye
shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work:
it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you.

04:029:002 And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto
the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the
first year without blemish:

04:029:003 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a
ram,

04:029:004 And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:

04:029:005 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an
atonement for you:

04:029:006 Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering,
and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their
drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet
savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD.

04:029:007 And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an
holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall
not do any work therein:

04:029:008 But ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD for a sweet
savour; one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the
first year; they shall be unto you without blemish:

04:029:009 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals to a bullock, and two tenth deals to one
ram,

04:029:010 A several tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:

04:029:011 One kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the sin
offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and
the meat offering of it, and their drink offerings.

04:029:012 And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an
holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall
keep a feast unto the LORD seven days:

04:029:013 And ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by fire,
of a sweet savour unto the LORD; thirteen young bullocks, two
rams, and fourteen lambs of the first year; they shall be
without blemish:

04:029:014 And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil,
three tenth deals unto every bullock of the thirteen bullocks,
two tenth deals to each ram of the two rams,

04:029:015 And a several tenth deal to each lamb of the fourteen lambs:

04:029:016 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink
offering.

04:029:017 And on the second day ye shall offer twelve young bullocks,
two rams, fourteen lambs of the first year without spot:

04:029:018 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:019 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, and the meat offering thereof, and
their drink offerings.

04:029:020 And on the third day eleven bullocks, two rams, fourteen lambs
of the first year without blemish;

04:029:021 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:022 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:023 And on the fourth day ten bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:024 Their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:025 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the
continual burnt offering, his meat offering, and his drink
offering.

04:029:026 And on the fifth day nine bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without spot:

04:029:027 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:028 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:029 And on the sixth day eight bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:030 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:031 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:032 And on the seventh day seven bullocks, two rams, and fourteen
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:033 And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the
bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, shall be according
to their number, after the manner:

04:029:034 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:035 On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do
no servile work therein:

04:029:036 But ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by fire,
of a sweet savour unto the LORD: one bullock, one ram, seven
lambs of the first year without blemish:

04:029:037 Their meat offering and their drink offerings for the bullock,
for the ram, and for the lambs, shall be according to their
number, after the manner:

04:029:038 And one goat for a sin offering; beside the continual burnt
offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:029:039 These things ye shall do unto the LORD in your set feasts,
beside your vows, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt
offerings, and for your meat offerings, and for your drink
offerings, and for your peace offerings.

04:029:040 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that
the LORD commanded Moses.

04:030:001 And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the
children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the LORD
hath commanded.

04:030:002 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his
soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do
according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.

04:030:003 If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a
bond, being in her father's house in her youth;

04:030:004 And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath
bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her;
then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she
hath bound her soul shall stand.

04:030:005 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not
any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her
soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her
father disallowed her.

04:030:006 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered
ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;

04:030:007 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day
that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds
wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.

04:030:008 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it;
then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she
uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none
effect: and the LORD shall forgive her.

04:030:009 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced,
wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against
her.

04:030:010 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by
a bond with an oath;

04:030:011 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and
disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every
bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand.

04:030:012 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he
heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips
concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall
not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall
forgive her.

04:030:013 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her
husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void.

04:030:014 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day
to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds,
which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his
peace at her in the day that he heard them.

04:030:015 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath
heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity.

04:030:016 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses,
between a man and his wife, between the father and his
daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.

04:031:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:031:002 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward
shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

04:031:003 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of
yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the
Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.

04:031:004 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of
Israel, shall ye send to the war.

04:031:005 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a
thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

04:031:006 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe,
them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war,
with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his
hand.

04:031:007 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded
Moses; and they slew all the males.

04:031:008 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them
that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and
Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they
slew with the sword.

04:031:009 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian
captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all
their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

04:031:010 And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all
their goodly castles, with fire.

04:031:011 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and
of beasts.

04:031:012 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil,
unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation
of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of
Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

04:031:013 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the
congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

04:031:014 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the
captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which
came from the battle.

04:031:015 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

04:031:016 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the
counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the
matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation
of the LORD.

04:031:017 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill
every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

04:031:018 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying
with him, keep alive for yourselves.

04:031:019 And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath
killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain,
purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day, and
on the seventh day.

04:031:020 And purify all your raiment, and all that is made of skins,
and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood.

04:031:021 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to
the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD
commanded Moses;

04:031:022 Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin,
and the lead,

04:031:023 Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go
through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall
be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth
not the fire ye shall make go through the water.

04:031:024 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye
shall be clean, and afterward ye shall come into the camp.

04:031:025 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:031:026 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of
beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of
the congregation:

04:031:027 And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took the
war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the
congregation:

04:031:028 And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went
out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons,
and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:

04:031:029 Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest,
for an heave offering of the LORD.

04:031:030 And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one
portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses,
and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto
the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the
LORD.

04:031:031 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded
Moses.

04:031:032 And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war
had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and
five thousand sheep,

04:031:033 And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,

04:031:034 And threescore and one thousand asses,

04:031:035 And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had
not known man by lying with him.

04:031:036 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to
war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty
thousand and five hundred sheep:

04:031:037 And the LORD's tribute of the sheep was six hundred and
threescore and fifteen.

04:031:038 And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the
LORD's tribute was threescore and twelve.

04:031:039 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which
the LORD's tribute was threescore and one.

04:031:040 And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD's
tribute was thirty and two persons.

04:031:041 And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD's heave
offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded
Moses.

04:031:042 And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided from
the men that warred,

04:031:043 (Now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three
hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and
five hundred sheep,

04:031:044 And thirty and six thousand beeves,

04:031:045 And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,

04:031:046 And sixteen thousand persons;)

04:031:047 Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion
of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the
Levites, which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD;
as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:031:048 And the officers which were over thousands of the host, the
captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near
unto Moses:

04:031:049 And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of
the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh
not one man of us.

04:031:050 We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD, what every
man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets,
rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our
souls before the LORD.

04:031:051 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even
all wrought jewels.

04:031:052 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the
LORD, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of
hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty
shekels.

04:031:053 (For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.)

04:031:054 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains
of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the
tabernacle of the congregation, for a memorial for the
children of Israel before the LORD.

04:032:001 Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very
great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of
Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place was a
place for cattle;

04:032:002 The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spake
unto Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of
the congregation, saying,

04:032:003 Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and
Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,

04:032:004 Even the country which the LORD smote before the congregation
of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle:

04:032:005 Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let
this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, and
bring us not over Jordan.

04:032:006 And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children of
Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?

04:032:007 And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of
Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given
them?

04:032:008 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadeshbarnea to
see the land.

04:032:009 For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the
land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel,
that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given
them.

04:032:010 And the LORD's anger was kindled the same time, and he sware,
saying,

04:032:011 Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty
years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto
Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not
wholly followed me:

04:032:012 Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the
son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD.

04:032:013 And the LORD's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made
them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the
generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was
consumed.

04:032:014 And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an
increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the
LORD toward Israel.

04:032:015 For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave
them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people.

04:032:016 And they came near unto him, and said, We will build
sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little
ones:

04:032:017 But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of
Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our
little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the
inhabitants of the land.

04:032:018 We will not return unto our houses, until the children of
Israel have inherited every man his inheritance.

04:032:019 For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan, or
forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side
Jordan eastward.

04:032:020 And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this thing, if ye will
go armed before the LORD to war,

04:032:021 And will go all of you armed over Jordan before the LORD,
until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,

04:032:022 And the land be subdued before the LORD: then afterward ye
shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD, and before
Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the
LORD.

04:032:023 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the
LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

04:032:024 Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your
sheep; and do that which hath proceeded out of your mouth.

04:032:025 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spake unto
Moses, saying, Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.

04:032:026 Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle,
shall be there in the cities of Gilead:

04:032:027 But thy servants will pass over, every man armed for war,
before the Lord to battle, as my lord saith.

04:032:028 So concerning them Moses commanded Eleazar the priest, and
Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of
the children of Israel:

04:032:029 And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the
children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every man
armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be
subdued before you; then ye shall give them the land of Gilead
for a possession:

04:032:030 But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have
possessions among you in the land of Canaan.

04:032:031 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered,
saying, As the LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we
do.

04:032:032 We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of
Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side
Jordan may be our's.

04:032:033 And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to
the children of Reuben, and unto half the tribe of Manasseh
the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites,
and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land, with the
cities thereof in the coasts, even the cities of the country
round about.

04:032:034 And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,

04:032:035 And Atroth, Shophan, and Jaazer, and Jogbehah,

04:032:036 And Bethnimrah, and Bethharan, fenced cities: and folds for
sheep.

04:032:037 And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and
Kirjathaim,

04:032:038 And Nebo, and Baalmeon, (their names being changed,) and
Shibmah: and gave other names unto the cities which they
builded.

04:032:039 And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead,
and took it, and dispossessed the Amorite which was in it.

04:032:040 And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he
dwelt therein.

04:032:041 And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the small towns
thereof, and called them Havothjair.

04:032:042 And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and
called it Nobah, after his own name.

04:033:001 These are the journeys of the children of Israel, which went
forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the
hand of Moses and Aaron.

04:033:002 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys
by the commandment of the LORD: and these are their journeys
according to their goings out.

04:033:003 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the
fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the
passover the children of Israel went out with an high hand in
the sight of all the Egyptians.

04:033:004 For the Egyptians buried all their firstborn, which the LORD
had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed
judgments.

04:033:005 And the children of Israel removed from Rameses, and pitched
in Succoth.

04:033:006 And they departed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which is
in the edge of the wilderness.

04:033:007 And they removed from Etham, and turned again unto Pihahiroth,
which is before Baalzephon: and they pitched before Migdol.

04:033:008 And they departed from before Pihahiroth, and passed through
the midst of the sea into the wilderness, and went three days'
journey in the wilderness of Etham, and pitched in Marah.

04:033:009 And they removed from Marah, and came unto Elim: and in Elim
were twelve fountains of water, and threescore and ten palm
trees; and they pitched there.

04:033:010 And they removed from Elim, and encamped by the Red sea.

04:033:011 And they removed from the Red sea, and encamped in the
wilderness of Sin.

04:033:012 And they took their journey out of the wilderness of Sin, and
encamped in Dophkah.

04:033:013 And they departed from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush.

04:033:014 And they removed from Alush, and encamped at Rephidim, where
was no water for the people to drink.

04:033:015 And they departed from Rephidim, and pitched in the wilderness
of Sinai.

04:033:016 And they removed from the desert of Sinai, and pitched at
Kibrothhattaavah.

04:033:017 And they departed from Kibrothhattaavah, and encamped at
Hazeroth.

04:033:018 And they departed from Hazeroth, and pitched in Rithmah.

04:033:019 And they departed from Rithmah, and pitched at Rimmonparez.

04:033:020 And they departed from Rimmonparez, and pitched in Libnah.

04:033:021 And they removed from Libnah, and pitched at Rissah.

04:033:022 And they journeyed from Rissah, and pitched in Kehelathah.

04:033:023 And they went from Kehelathah, and pitched in mount Shapher.

04:033:024 And they removed from mount Shapher, and encamped in Haradah.

04:033:025 And they removed from Haradah, and pitched in Makheloth.

04:033:026 And they removed from Makheloth, and encamped at Tahath.

04:033:027 And they departed from Tahath, and pitched at Tarah.

04:033:028 And they removed from Tarah, and pitched in Mithcah.

04:033:029 And they went from Mithcah, and pitched in Hashmonah.

04:033:030 And they departed from Hashmonah, and encamped at Moseroth.

04:033:031 And they departed from Moseroth, and pitched in Benejaakan.

04:033:032 And they removed from Benejaakan, and encamped at Horhagidgad.

04:033:033 And they went from Horhagidgad, and pitched in Jotbathah.

04:033:034 And they removed from Jotbathah, and encamped at Ebronah.

04:033:035 And they departed from Ebronah, and encamped at Eziongaber.

04:033:036 And they removed from Eziongaber, and pitched in the
wilderness of Zin, which is Kadesh.

04:033:037 And they removed from Kadesh, and pitched in mount Hor, in the
edge of the land of Edom.

04:033:038 And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment
of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the
children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the
first day of the fifth month.

04:033:039 And Aaron was an hundred and twenty and three years old when
he died in mount Hor.

04:033:040 And king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south in the
land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children of Israel.

04:033:041 And they departed from mount Hor, and pitched in Zalmonah.

04:033:042 And they departed from Zalmonah, and pitched in Punon.

04:033:043 And they departed from Punon, and pitched in Oboth.

04:033:044 And they departed from Oboth, and pitched in Ijeabarim, in the
border of Moab.

04:033:045 And they departed from Iim, and pitched in Dibongad.

04:033:046 And they removed from Dibongad, and encamped in
Almondiblathaim.

04:033:047 And they removed from Almondiblathaim, and pitched in the
mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.

04:033:048 And they departed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched in
the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.

04:033:049 And they pitched by Jordan, from Bethjesimoth even unto
Abelshittim in the plains of Moab.

04:033:050 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan
near Jericho, saying,

04:033:051 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

04:033:052 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from
before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all
their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high
places:

04:033:053 And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell
therein: for I have given you the land to possess it.

04:033:054 And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among
your families: and to the more ye shall give the more
inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less
inheritance: every man's inheritance shall be in the place
where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers
ye shall inherit.

04:033:055 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from
before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye
let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in
your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.

04:033:056 Moreover it shall come to pass, that I shall do unto you, as I
thought to do unto them.

04:034:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:034:002 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land that shall
fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan with
the coasts thereof:)

04:034:003 Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin
along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the
outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:

04:034:004 And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of
Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof
shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to
Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:

04:034:005 And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river
of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea.

04:034:006 And as for the western border, ye shall even have the great
sea for a border: this shall be your west border.

04:034:007 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye
shall point out for you mount Hor:

04:034:008 From mount Hor ye shall point out your border unto the
entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall
be to Zedad:

04:034:009 And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of
it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border.

04:034:010 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to
Shepham:

04:034:011 And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the
east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall
reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:

04:034:012 And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of
it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the
coasts thereof round about.

04:034:013 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This is
the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD
commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:

04:034:014 For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house
of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad
according to the house of their fathers, have received their
inheritance; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received
their inheritance:

04:034:015 The two tribes and the half tribe have received their
inheritance on this side Jordan near Jericho eastward, toward
the sunrising.

04:034:016 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:034:017 These are the names of the men which shall divide the land
unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

04:034:018 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the
land by inheritance.

04:034:019 And the names of the men are these: Of the tribe of Judah,
Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

04:034:020 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of
Ammihud.

04:034:021 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.

04:034:022 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the
son of Jogli.

04:034:023 The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the
children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod.

04:034:024 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel
the son of Shiphtan.

04:034:025 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun,
Elizaphan the son of Parnach.

04:034:026 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar,
Paltiel the son of Azzan.

04:034:027 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud
the son of Shelomi.

04:034:028 And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali,
Pedahel the son of Ammihud.

04:034:029 These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the
inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.

04:035:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan
near Jericho, saying,

04:035:002 Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the
Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell
in; and ye shall give also unto the Levites suburbs for the
cities round about them.

04:035:003 And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and the suburbs of
them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for
all their beasts.

04:035:004 And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the
Levites, shall reach from the wall of the city and outward a
thousand cubits round about.

04:035:005 And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side
two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand
cubits, and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the
north side two thousand cubits; and the city shall be in the
midst: this shall be to them the suburbs of the cities.

04:035:006 And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites
there shall be six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint
for the manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye
shall add forty and two cities.

04:035:007 So all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be
forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with their suburbs.

04:035:008 And the cities which ye shall give shall be of the possession
of the children of Israel: from them that have many ye shall
give many; but from them that have few ye shall give few:
every one shall give of his cities unto the Levites according
to his inheritance which he inheriteth.

04:035:009 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:035:010 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;

04:035:011 Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for
you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any
person at unawares.

04:035:012 And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger;
that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the
congregation in judgment.

04:035:013 And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye
have for refuge.

04:035:014 Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three
cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, which shall be
cities of refuge.

04:035:015 These six cities shall be a refuge, both for the children of
Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among
them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee
thither.

04:035:016 And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he
die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to
death.

04:035:017 And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may
die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall surely
be put to death.

04:035:018 Or if he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he
may die, and he die, he is a murderer: the murderer shall
surely be put to death.

04:035:019 The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he
meeteth him, he shall slay him.

04:035:020 But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of
wait, that he die;

04:035:021 Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that
smote him shall surely be put to death; for he is a murderer:
the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth
him.

04:035:022 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast
upon him any thing without laying of wait,

04:035:023 Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing him not,
and cast it upon him, that he die, and was not his enemy,
neither sought his harm:

04:035:024 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the
revenger of blood according to these judgments:

04:035:025 And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand
of the revenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore
him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he
shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest, which was
anointed with the holy oil.

04:035:026 But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border of
the city of his refuge, whither he was fled;

04:035:027 And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the
city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer;
he shall not be guilty of blood:

04:035:028 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge
until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the
high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his
possession.

04:035:029 So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

04:035:030 Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death
by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify
against any person to cause him to die.

04:035:031 Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a
murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put
to death.

04:035:032 And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the
city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the
land, until the death of the priest.

04:035:033 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it
defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the
blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed
it.

04:035:034 Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein
I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel.

04:036:001 And the chief fathers of the families of the children of
Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the
families of the sons of Joseph, came near, and spake before
Moses, and before the princes, the chief fathers of the
children of Israel:

04:036:002 And they said, The LORD commanded my lord to give the land for
an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord
was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of
Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters.

04:036:003 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes
of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be
taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put to
the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so
shall it be taken from the lot of our inheritance.

04:036:004 And when the jubile of the children of Israel shall be, then
shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the
tribe whereunto they are received: so shall their inheritance
be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our
fathers.

04:036:005 And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the
word of the LORD, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath
said well.

04:036:006 This is the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the
daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they
think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father
shall they marry.

04:036:007 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel remove
from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of Israel
shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his
fathers.

04:036:008 And every daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any
tribe of the children of Israel, shall be wife unto one of the
family of the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel
may enjoy every man the inheritance of his fathers.

04:036:009 Neither shall the inheritance remove from one tribe to another
tribe; but every one of the tribes of the children of Israel
shall keep himself to his own inheritance.

04:036:010 Even as the LORD commanded Moses, so did the daughters of
Zelophehad:

04:036:011 For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the
daughters of Zelophehad, were married unto their father's
brothers' sons:

04:036:012 And they were married into the families of the sons of
Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in
the tribe of the family of their father.

04:036:013 These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD
commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in
the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.
