is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come
to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they
die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the
tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:016 And to the office of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest
pertaineth the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and
the daily meat offering, and the anointing oil, and the
oversight of all the tabernacle, and of all that therein is,
in the sanctuary, and in the vessels thereof.

04:004:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron saying,

04:004:018 Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites
from among the Levites:

04:004:019 But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when
they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons
shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to
his burden:

04:004:020 But they shall not go in to see when the holy things are
covered, lest they die.

04:004:021 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:004:022 Take also the sum of the sons of Gershon, throughout the
houses of their fathers, by their families;

04:004:023 From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt
thou number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to
do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:024 This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, to
serve, and for burdens:

04:004:025 And they shall bear the curtains of the tabernacle, and the
tabernacle of the congregation, his covering, and the covering
of the badgers' skins that is above upon it, and the hanging
for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

04:004:026 And the hangings of the court, and the hanging for the door of
the gate of the court, which is by the tabernacle and by the
altar round about, and their cords, and all the instruments of
their service, and all that is made for them: so shall they
serve.

04:004:027 At the appointment of Aaron and his sons shall be all the
service of the sons of the Gershonites, in all their burdens,
and in all their service: and ye shall appoint unto them in
charge all their burdens.

04:004:028 This is the service of the families of the sons of Gershon in
the tabernacle of the congregation: and their charge shall be
under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

04:004:029 As for the sons of Merari, thou shalt number them after their
families, by the house of their fathers;

04:004:030 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old
shalt thou number them, every one that entereth into the
service, to do the work of the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:031 And this is the charge of their burden, according to all their
service in the tabernacle of the congregation; the boards of
the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof,
and sockets thereof,

04:004:032 And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets,
and their pins, and their cords, with all their instruments,
and with all their service: and by name ye shall reckon the
instruments of the charge of their burden.

04:004:033 This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari,
according to all their service, in the tabernacle of the
congregation, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the
priest.

04:004:034 And Moses and Aaron and the chief of the congregation numbered
the sons of the Kohathites after their families, and after the
house of their fathers,

04:004:035 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the
tabernacle of the congregation:

04:004:036 And those that were numbered of them by their families were
two thousand seven hundred and fifty.

04:004:037 These were they that were numbered of the families of the
Kohathites, all that might do service in the tabernacle of the
congregation, which Moses and Aaron did number according to
the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:004:038 And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon,
throughout their families, and by the house of their fathers,

04:004:039 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the
tabernacle of the congregation,

04:004:040 Even those that were numbered of them, throughout their
families, by the house of their fathers, were two thousand and
six hundred and thirty.

04:004:041 These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons
of Gershon, of all that might do service in the tabernacle of
the congregation, whom Moses and Aaron did number according to
the commandment of the LORD.

04:004:042 And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of
Merari, throughout their families, by the house of their
fathers,

04:004:043 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the
tabernacle of the congregation,

04:004:044 Even those that were numbered of them after their families,
were three thousand and two hundred.

04:004:045 These be those that were numbered of the families of the sons
of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the word
of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:004:046 All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and
Aaron and the chief of Israel numbered, after their families,
and after the house of their fathers,

04:004:047 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old,
every one that came to do the service of the ministry, and the
service of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation.

04:004:048 Even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and
five hundred and fourscore,

04:004:049 According to the commandment of the LORD they were numbered by
the hand of Moses, every one according to his service, and
according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as
the LORD commanded Moses.

04:005:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:002 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp
every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever
is defiled by the dead:

04:005:003 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall
ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst
whereof I dwell.

04:005:004 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without
the camp: as the LORD spake unto Moses, so did the children of
Israel.

04:005:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:006 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall
commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the
LORD, and that person be guilty;

04:005:007 Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he
shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and
add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him
against whom he hath trespassed.

04:005:008 But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass
unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to
the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an
atonement shall be made for him.

04:005:009 And every offering of all the holy things of the children of
Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his.

04:005:010 And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any
man giveth the priest, it shall be his.

04:005:011 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:005:012 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any
man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

04:005:013 And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes
of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and
there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the
manner;

04:005:014 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of
his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy
come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not
defiled:

04:005:015 Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he
shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah
of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put
frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an
offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

04:005:016 And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the
LORD:

04:005:017 And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and
of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest
shall take, and put it into the water:

04:005:018 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and
uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in
her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest
shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the
curse:

04:005:019 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the
woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not
gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband,
be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

04:005:020 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband,
and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee
beside thine husband:

04:005:021 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of
cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD
make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD
doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;

04:005:022 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy
bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And
the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

04:005:023 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he
shall blot them out with the bitter water:

04:005:024 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that
causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall
enter into her, and become bitter.

04:005:025 Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the
woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and
offer it upon the altar:

04:005:026 And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the
memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward
shall cause the woman to drink the water.

04:005:027 And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall
come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass
against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse
shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall
swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse
among her people.

04:005:028 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall
be free, and shall conceive seed.

04:005:029 This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to
another instead of her husband, and is defiled;

04:005:030 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be
jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the
LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.

04:005:031 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman
shall bear her iniquity.

04:006:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:006:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When
either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of
a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

04:006:003 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and
shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink,
neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist
grapes, or dried.

04:006:004 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is
made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

04:006:005 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor
come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which
he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and
shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

04:006:006 All the days that he separateth himself unto the LORD he shall
come at no dead body.

04:006:007 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his
mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die:
because the consecration of his God is upon his head.

04:006:008 All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

04:006:009 And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled
the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in
the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave
it.

04:006:010 And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young
pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation:

04:006:011 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the
other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for
that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that
same day.

04:006:012 And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his
separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a
trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be
lost, because his separation was defiled.

04:006:013 And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his
separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation:

04:006:014 And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of
the first year without blemish for a burnt offering, and one
ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin offering,
and one ram without blemish for peace offerings,

04:006:015 And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled
with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil,
and their meat offering, and their drink offerings.

04:006:016 And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and shall
offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:

04:006:017 And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings
unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest
shall offer also his meat offering, and his drink offering.

04:006:018 And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the
hair of the head of his separation, and put it in the fire
which is under the sacrifice of the peace offerings.

04:006:019 And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the ram, and
one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened
wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the Nazarite,
after the hair of his separation is shaven:

04:006:020 And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the
LORD: this is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and
heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.

04:006:021 This is the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, and of his
offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that
his hand shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he
must do after the law of his separation.

04:006:022 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:006:023 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye
shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,

04:006:024 The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

04:006:025 The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto
thee:

04:006:026 The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee
peace.

04:006:027 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I
will bless them.

04:007:001 And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the
tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all
the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels
thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;

04:007:002 That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their
fathers, who were the princes of the tribes, and were over
them that were numbered, offered:

04:007:003 And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered
wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and
for each one an ox: and they brought them before the
tabernacle.

04:007:004 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:007:005 Take it of them, that they may be to do the service of the
tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto
the Levites, to every man according to his service.

04:007:006 And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto the
Levites.

04:007:007 Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon,
according to their service:

04:007:008 And four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of
Merari, according unto their service, under the hand of
Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

04:007:009 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: because the service
of the sanctuary belonging unto them was that they should bear
upon their shoulders.

04:007:010 And the princes offered for dedicating of the altar in the day
that it was anointed, even the princes offered their offering
before the altar.

04:007:011 And the LORD said unto Moses, They shall offer their offering,
each prince on his day, for the dedicating of the altar.

04:007:012 And he that offered his offering the first day was Nahshon the

04:007:082 One kid of the goats for a sin offering:

04:007:083 And for a sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams,
five he goats, five lambs of the first year: this was the
offering of Ahira the son of Enan.

04:007:084 This was the dedication of the altar, in the day when it was
anointed, by the princes of Israel: twelve chargers of silver,
twelve silver bowls, twelve spoons of gold:

04:007:085 Each charger of silver weighing an hundred and thirty shekels,
each bowl seventy: all the silver vessels weighed two thousand
and four hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

04:007:086 The golden spoons were twelve, full of incense, weighing ten
shekels apiece, after the shekel of the sanctuary: all the
gold of the spoons was an hundred and twenty shekels.

04:007:087 All the oxen for the burnt offering were twelve bullocks, the
rams twelve, the lambs of the first year twelve, with their
meat offering: and the kids of the goats for sin offering
twelve.

04:007:088 And all the oxen for the sacrifice of the peace offerings were
twenty and four bullocks, the rams sixty, the he goats sixty,
the lambs of the first year sixty. This was the dedication of
the altar, after that it was anointed.

04:007:089 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the
congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one
speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the
ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims: and he spake
unto him.

04:008:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:002 Speak unto Aaron and say unto him, When thou lightest the
lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the
candlestick.

04:008:003 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof over against
the candlestick, as the LORD commanded Moses.

04:008:004 And this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the
shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work:
according unto the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so
he made the candlestick.

04:008:005 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:006 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and
cleanse them.

04:008:007 And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle
water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their
flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves
clean.

04:008:008 Then let them take a young bullock with his meat offering,
even fine flour mingled with oil, and another young bullock
shalt thou take for a sin offering.

04:008:009 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the tabernacle of the
congregation: and thou shalt gather the whole assembly of the
children of Israel together:

04:008:010 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the LORD: and the
children of Israel shall put their hands upon the Levites:

04:008:011 And Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD for an
offering of the children of Israel, that they may execute the
service of the LORD.

04:008:012 And the Levites shall lay their hands upon the heads of the
bullocks: and thou shalt offer the one for a sin offering, and
the other for a burnt offering, unto the LORD, to make an
atonement for the Levites.

04:008:013 And thou shalt set the Levites before Aaron, and before his
sons, and offer them for an offering unto the LORD.

04:008:014 Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the children
of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.

04:008:015 And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of
the tabernacle of the congregation: and thou shalt cleanse
them, and offer them for an offering.

04:008:016 For they are wholly given unto me from among the children of
Israel; instead of such as open every womb, even instead of
the firstborn of all the children of Israel, have I taken them
unto me.

04:008:017 For all the firstborn of the children of Israel are mine, both
man and beast: on the day that I smote every firstborn in the
land of Egypt I sanctified them for myself.

04:008:018 And I have taken the Levites for all the firstborn of the
children of Israel.

04:008:019 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his
sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of
the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation,
and to make an atonement for the children of Israel: that
there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the
children of Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary.

04:008:020 And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children
of Israel, did to the Levites according unto all that the LORD
commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the children of
Israel unto them.

04:008:021 And the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes;
and Aaron offered them as an offering before the LORD; and
Aaron made an atonement for them to cleanse them.

04:008:022 And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the
tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his
sons: as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites,
so did they unto them.

04:008:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:008:024 This is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and
five years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the
service of the tabernacle of the congregation:

04:008:025 And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon
the service thereof, and shall serve no more:

04:008:026 But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of
the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no service.
Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge.

04:009:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in
the first month of the second year after they were come out of
the land of Egypt, saying,

04:009:002 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his
appointed season.

04:009:003 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it
in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and
according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.

04:009:004 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, that they should
keep the passover.

04:009:005 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first
month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all
that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

04:009:006 And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body
of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day:
and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:

04:009:007 And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body
of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an
offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the
children of Israel?

04:009:008 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what
the LORD will command concerning you.

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

04:009:010 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you
or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead
body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the
passover unto the LORD.

04:009:011 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep
it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

04:009:012 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any
bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover
they shall keep it.

04:009:013 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and
forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be
cut off from among his people: because he brought not the
offering of the LORD in his appointed season, that man shall
bear his sin.

04:009:014 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the
passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the
passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do:
ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for
him that was born in the land.

04:009:015 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud
covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and
at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the
appearance of fire, until the morning.

04:009:016 So it was alway: the cloud covered it by day, and the
appearance of fire by night.

04:009:017 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then
after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place
where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched
their tents.

04:009:018 At the commandment of the LORD the children of Israel
journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched: as
long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in
their tents.

04:009:019 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days,
then the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD, and
journeyed not.

04:009:020 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the
tabernacle; according to the commandment of the LORD they
abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the
LORD they journeyed.

04:009:021 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the
morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then
they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the
cloud was taken up, they journeyed.

04:009:022 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the
cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the
children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not:
but when it was taken up, they journeyed.

04:009:023 At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and
at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the
charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand
of Moses.

04:010:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:010:002 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou
make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the
assembly, and for the journeying of the camps.

04:010:003 And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall
assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation.

04:010:004 And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, which
are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves
unto thee.

04:010:005 When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east
parts shall go forward.

04:010:006 When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie
on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an
alarm for their journeys.

04:010:007 But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall
blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.

04:010:008 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the
trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever
throughout your generations.

04:010:009 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that
oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets;
and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye
shall be saved from your enemies.

04:010:010 Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and
in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the
trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of
your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial
before your God: I am the LORD your God.

04:010:011 And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month,
in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the
tabernacle of the testimony.

04:010:012 And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the
wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the wilderness of
Paran.

04:010:013 And they first took their journey according to the commandment
of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

04:010:014 In the first place went the standard of the camp of the
children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host
was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

04:010:015 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar was
Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

04:010:016 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was
Eliab the son of Helon.

04:010:017 And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and
the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle.

04:010:018 And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according
to their armies: and over his host was Elizur the son of
Shedeur.

04:010:019 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon was
Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

04:010:020 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad was
Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

04:010:021 And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and the
other did set up the tabernacle against they came.

04:010:022 And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set
forward according to their armies: and over his host was
Elishama the son of Ammihud.

04:010:023 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh was
Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

04:010:024 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was
Abidan the son of Gideoni.

04:010:025 And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set
forward, which was the rereward of all the camps throughout
their hosts: and over his host was Ahiezer the son of
Ammishaddai.

04:010:026 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was
Pagiel the son of Ocran.

04:010:027 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was
Ahira the son of Enan.

04:010:028 Thus were the journeyings of the children of Israel according
to their armies, when they set forward.

04:010:029 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite,
Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of
which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us,
and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good
concerning Israel.

04:010:030 And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine
own land, and to my kindred.

04:010:031 And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou
knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou
mayest be to us instead of eyes.

04:010:032 And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that
what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do
unto thee.

04:010:033 And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days'
journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before
them in the three days' journey, to search out a resting place
for them.

04:010:034 And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day, when they went
out of the camp.

04:010:035 And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses
said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and
let them that hate thee flee before thee.

04:010:036 And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many
thousands of Israel.

04:011:001 And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and
the LORD heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of
the LORD burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the
uttermost parts of the camp.

04:011:002 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto
the LORD, the fire was quenched.

04:011:003 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire
of the LORD burnt among them.

04:011:004 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and
the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall
give us flesh to eat?

04:011:005 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the
cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and
the garlick:

04:011:006 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all,
beside this manna, before our eyes.

04:011:007 And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as
the colour of bdellium.

04:011:008 And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in
mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made
cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh
oil.

04:011:009 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna
fell upon it.

04:011:010 Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families,
every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of the LORD
was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased.

04:011:011 And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted
thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy
sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?

04:011:012 Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that
thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a
nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which
thou swarest unto their fathers?

04:011:013 Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for
they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.

04:011:014 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too
heavy for me.

04:011:015 And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of
hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see
my wretchedness.

04:011:016 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of
the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of
the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the
tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with
thee.

04:011:017 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take
of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them;
and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that
thou bear it not thyself alone.

04:011:018 And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to
morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears
of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it
was well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you
flesh, and ye shall eat.

04:011:019 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither
ten days, nor twenty days;

04:011:020 But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils,
and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised
the LORD which is among you, and have wept before him, saying,
Why came we forth out of Egypt?

04:011:021 And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred
thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh,
that they may eat a whole month.

04:011:022 Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice
them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together
for them, to suffice them?

04:011:023 And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD's hand waxed short?
thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto
thee or not.

04:011:024 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD,
and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and
set them round about the tabernacle.

04:011:025 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and
took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the
seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit
rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

04:011:026 But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the
one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit
rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but
went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the
camp.

04:011:027 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and
Medad do prophesy in the camp.

04:011:028 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his
young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.

04:011:029 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God
that all the LORD's people were prophets, and that the LORD
would put his spirit upon them!

04:011:030 And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.

04:011:031 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails
from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a
day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on
the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two
cubits high upon the face of the earth.

04:011:032 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and
all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that
gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all
abroad for themselves round about the camp.

04:011:033 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was
chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people,
and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

04:011:034 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because
there they buried the people that lusted.

04:011:035 And the people journeyed from Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth;
and abode at Hazeroth.

04:012:001 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the
Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an
Ethiopian woman.

04:012:002 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath
he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.

04:012:003 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were
upon the face of the earth.)

04:012:004 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and
unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the
congregation. And they three came out.

04:012:005 And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood
in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam:
and they both came forth.

04:012:006 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among
you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision,
and will speak unto him in a dream.

04:012:007 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.

04:012:008 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not
in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he
behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my
servant Moses?

04:012:009 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he
departed.

04:012:010 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold,
Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon
Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.

04:012:011 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay
not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and
wherein we have sinned.

04:012:012 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed
when he cometh out of his mother's womb.

04:012:013 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I
beseech thee.

04:012:014 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in
her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be
shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be
received in again.

04:012:015 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the
people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again.

04:012:016 And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth, and pitched in
the wilderness of Paran.

04:013:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:013:002 Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which
I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their
fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them.

04:013:003 And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the
wilderness of Paran: all those men were heads of the children
of Israel.

04:013:004 And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua
the son of Zaccur.

04:013:005 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori.

04:013:006 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

04:013:007 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph.

04:013:008 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son of Nun.

04:013:009 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu.

04:013:010 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi.

04:013:011 Of the tribe of Joseph, namely, of the tribe of Manasseh,
Gaddi the son of Susi.

04:013:012 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli.

04:013:013 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

04:013:014 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi.

04:013:015 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi.

04:013:016 These are the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the
land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.

04:013:017 And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said
unto them, Get you up this way southward, and go up into the
mountain:

04:013:018 And see the land, what it is, and the people that dwelleth
therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or many;

04:013:019 And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or
bad; and what cities they be that they dwell in, whether in
tents, or in strong holds;

04:013:020 And what the land is, whether it be fat or lean, whether there
be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring
of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time of the
firstripe grapes.

04:013:021 So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of
Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.

04:013:022 And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where
Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, were. (Now
Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)

04:013:023 And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from
thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it
between two upon a staff; and they brought of the
pomegranates, and of the figs.

04:013:024 The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster
of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.

04:013:025 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.

04:013:026 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the
congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of
Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto
all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.

04:013:027 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither
thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey;
and this is the fruit of it.

04:013:028 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and
the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the
children of Anak there.

04:013:029 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the
Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the
mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the
coast of Jordan.

04:013:030 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go
up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome
it.

04:013:031 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go
up against the people; for they are stronger than we.

04:013:032 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had
searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land,
through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth
up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in
it are men of a great stature.

04:013:033 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of
the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and
so we were in their sight.

04:014:001 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and
the people wept that night.

04:014:002 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and
against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them,
Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God
we had died in this wilderness!

04:014:003 And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall
by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a
prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

04:014:004 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let
us return into Egypt.

04:014:005 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the
assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

04:014:006 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh,
which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:

04:014:007 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel,
saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an
exceeding good land.

04:014:008 If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this
land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and
honey.

04:014:009 Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people
of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is
departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.

04:014:010 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the
glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the
congregation before all the children of Israel.

04:014:011 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people
provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for
all the signs which I have shewed among them?

04:014:012 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them,
and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.

04:014:013 And Moses said unto the LORD, Then the Egyptians shall hear
it, (for thou broughtest up this people in thy might from
among them;)

04:014:014 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for
they have heard that thou LORD art among this people, that
thou LORD art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth
over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a
pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.

04:014:015 Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the
nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

04:014:016 Because the LORD was not able to bring this people into the
land which he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in
the wilderness.

04:014:017 And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great,
according as thou hast spoken, saying,

04:014:018 The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving
iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the
guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children
unto the third and fourth generation.

04:014:019 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according
unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven
this people, from Egypt even until now.

04:014:020 And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

04:014:021 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the
glory of the LORD.

04:014:022 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my
miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have
tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my
voice;

04:014:023 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their
fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:

04:014:024 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him,
and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land
whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

04:014:025 (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.)
Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way
of the Red sea.

04:014:026 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:014:027 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which
murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children
of Israel, which they murmur against me.

04:014:028 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have
spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

04:014:029 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were
numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty
years old and upward which have murmured against me.

04:014:030 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I
sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of
Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

04:014:031 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them
will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have
despised.

04:014:032 But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this
wilderness.

04:014:033 And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years,
and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the
wilderness.

04:014:034 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land,
even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your
iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of
promise.

04:014:035 I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil
congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this
wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

04:014:036 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who
returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him,
by bringing up a slander upon the land,

04:014:037 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the
land, died by the plague before the LORD.

04:014:038 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh,
which were of the men that went to search the land, lived
still.

04:014:039 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel:
and the people mourned greatly.

04:014:040 And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into
the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go
up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have
sinned.

04:014:041 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment
of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.

04:014:042 Go not up, for the LORD is not among you; that ye be not
smitten before your enemies.

04:014:043 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you,
and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away
from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you.

04:014:044 But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the
ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out
of the camp.

04:014:045 Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt
in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto
Hormah.

04:015:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto
you,

04:015:003 And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt
offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill
offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour
unto the LORD, of the herd or of the flock:

04:015:004 Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring a
meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth
part of an hin of oil.

04:015:005 And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering
shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for
one lamb.

04:015:006 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two tenth
deals of flour mingled with the third part of an hin of oil.

04:015:007 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of an
hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:015:008 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or for
a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the
LORD:

04:015:009 Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three
tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil.

04:015:010 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine,
for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

04:015:011 Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for
a lamb, or a kid.

04:015:012 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do
to every one according to their number.

04:015:013 All that are born of the country shall do these things after
this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet
savour unto the LORD.

04:015:014 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you
in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire,
of a sweet savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do.

04:015:015 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and
also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance
for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger
be before the LORD.

04:015:016 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger
that sojourneth with you.

04:015:017 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:018 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye
come into the land whither I bring you,

04:015:019 Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land,
ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD.

04:015:020 Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an
heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the
threshingfloor, so shall ye heave it.

04:015:021 Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an
heave offering in your generations.

04:015:022 And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments,
which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,

04:015:023 Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of
Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and
henceforward among your generations;

04:015:024 Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without
the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation
shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a
sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his
drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the
goats for a sin offering.

04:015:025 And the priest shall make an atonement for all the
congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be
forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their
offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their
sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance:

04:015:026 And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children
of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing
all the people were in ignorance.

04:015:027 And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a
she goat of the first year for a sin offering.

04:015:028 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that
sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the
LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven
him.

04:015:029 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance,
both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and
for the stranger that sojourneth among them.

04:015:030 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be
born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the
LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

04:015:031 Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken
his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his
iniquity shall be upon him.

04:015:032 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they
found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

04:015:033 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto
Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

04:015:034 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what
should be done to him.

04:015:035 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to
death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones
without the camp.

04:015:036 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and
stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded
Moses.

04:015:037 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:015:038 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make
them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their
generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders
a ribband of blue:

04:015:039 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon
it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do
them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own
eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

04:015:040 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy
unto your God.

04:015:041 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of
Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.

04:016:001 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of
Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the
son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men:

04:016:002 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of
Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous
in the congregation, men of renown:

04:016:003 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and
against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you,
seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and
the LORD is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves
above the congregation of the LORD?

04:016:004 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face:

04:016:005 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even
to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and
will cause him to come near unto him: even him whom he hath
chosen will he cause to come near unto him.

04:016:006 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;

04:016:007 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD
to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth
choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons
of Levi.

04:016:008 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:

04:016:009 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel
hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring
you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the
LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto
them?

04:016:010 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the
sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?

04:016:011 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered
together against the LORD: and what is Aaron, that ye murmur
against him?

04:016:012 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab:
which said, We will not come up:

04:016:013 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land
that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the
wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over
us?

04:016:014 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth
with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and
vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will
not come up.

04:016:015 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not
thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them,
neither have I hurt one of them.

04:016:016 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before
the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:

04:016:017 And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and
bring ye before the LORD every man his censer, two hundred and
fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each of you his censer.

04:016:018 And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and
laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle
of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.

04:016:019 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of
the LORD appeared unto all the congregation.

04:016:020 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

04:016:021 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may
consume them in a moment.

04:016:022 And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of
the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be
wroth with all the congregation?

04:016:023 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:024 Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the
tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

04:016:025 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the
elders of Israel followed him.

04:016:026 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray
you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of
their's, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.

04:016:027 So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and
Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and
stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their
sons, and their little children.

04:016:028 And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent
me to do all these works; for I have not done them of mine own
mind.

04:016:029 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be
visited after the visitation of all men; then the LORD hath
not sent me.

04:016:030 But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her
mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them,
and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand
that these men have provoked the LORD.

04:016:031 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all
these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under
them:

04:016:032 And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and
their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and
all their goods.

04:016:033 They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into
the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished
from among the congregation.

04:016:034 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of
them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.

04:016:035 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two
hundred and fifty men that offered incense.

04:016:036 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:037 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take
up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire
yonder; for they are hallowed.

04:016:038 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them
make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they
offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and
they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.

04:016:039 And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they
that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad plates
for a covering of the altar:

04:016:040 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no
stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to
offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as
his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses.

04:016:041 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of
Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye
have killed the people of the LORD.

04:016:042 And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered
against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the
tabernacle of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered
it, and the glory of the LORD appeared.

04:016:043 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the
congregation.

04:016:044 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:016:045 Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume
them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces.

04:016:046 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein
from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto
the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is
wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun.

04:016:047 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of
the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the
people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the
people.

04:016:048 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague
was stayed.

04:016:049 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and
seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of
Korah.

04:016:050 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle
of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.

04:017:001 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

04:017:002 Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of
them a rod according to the house of their fathers, of all
their princes according to the house of their fathers twelve
rods: write thou every man's name upon his rod.

04:017:003 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi: for
one rod shall be for the head of the house of their fathers.

04:017:004 And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the
congregation before the testimony, where I will meet with you.

04:017:005 And it shall come to pass, that the man's rod, whom I shall
choose, shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the
murmurings of the children of Israel, whereby they murmur
against you.

04:017:006 And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of
their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one,
according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the
rod of Aaron was among their rods.

04:017:007 And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle
of witness.

04:017:008 And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the
tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the
house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed
blossoms, and yielded almonds.

04:017:009 And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto
all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every
man his rod.

04:017:010 And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before
the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and
thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they
die not.

04:017:011 And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.

04:017:012 And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold,
we die, we perish, we all perish.

04:017:013 Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the
LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?

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,
