8:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
8:2 Speak unto Aaron and say unto him, When
thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against
8:3 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps
thereof over against the candlestick, as the LORD commanded Moses.
8:4 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.
8:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
8:6 Take the Levites from among the
children of Israel, and cleanse them.
8:7 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
8:8 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.
8:9 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:
8:10 And thou shalt bring the Levites
before the LORD: and the children of Israel shall put their hands upon
8:11 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.
8:12 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.
8:13 And thou shalt set the Levites before
Aaron, and before his sons, and offer them for an offering unto the LORD.
8:14 Thus shalt thou separate the Levites
from among the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.
8:15 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.
8:16 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.
8:17 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.
8:18 And I have taken the Levites for all
the firstborn of the children of Israel.
8:19 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.
8:20 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.
8:21 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.
8:22 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.
8:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
8:24 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:
8:25 And from the age of fifty years they
shall cease waiting upon the service thereof, and shall serve no more:
8:26 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
9:1 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,
9:2 Let the children of Israel also keep
the passover at his appointed season.
9:3 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
9:4 And Moses spake unto the children of
Israel, that they should keep the passover.
9:5 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
9:6 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
9:7 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?
9:8 And Moses said unto them, Stand still,
and I will hear what the LORD will command concerning you.
9:9 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
9:10 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.
9:11 The fourteenth day of the second month
at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and
9:12 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.
9:13 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
9:14 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.
9:15 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.
9:16 So it was alway: the cloud covered it
by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
9:17 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.
9:18 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
9:19 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.
9:20 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
9:21 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.
9:22 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.
9:23 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.
10:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
10:2 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.
10:3 And when they shall blow with them,
all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
10:4 And if they blow but with one trumpet,
then the princes, which are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall
gather themselves unto thee.
10:5 When ye blow an alarm, then the camps
that lie on the east parts shall go forward.
10:6 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.
10:7 But when the congregation is to be
gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.
10:8 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.
10:9 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.
10:10 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.
10:11 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.
10:12 And the children of Israel took their
journeys out of the wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the
wilderness of Paran.
10:13 And they first took their journey
according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
10:14 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.
10:15 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Issachar was Nethaneel the son of Zuar.
10:16 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon.
10:17 And the tabernacle was taken down;
and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing
10:18 And the standard of the camp of
Reuben set forward according to their armies: and over his host was
Elizur the son of Shedeur.
10:19 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Simeon was Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.
10:20 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Deuel.
10:21 And the Kohathites set forward,
bearing the sanctuary: and the other did set up the tabernacle against
10:22 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.
10:23 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Manasseh was Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.
10:24 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gideoni.
10:25 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
10:26 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran.
10:27 And over the host of the tribe of the
children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enan.
10:28 Thus were the journeyings of the
children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward.
10:29 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
10:30 And he said unto him, I will not go;
but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred.
10:31 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.
10:32 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.
10:33 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.
10:34 And the cloud of the LORD was upon
them by day, when they went out of the camp.
10:35 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.
10:36 And when it rested, he said, Return,
O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel.
11:1 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.
11:2 And the people cried unto Moses; and
when Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched.
11:3 And he called the name of the place
Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.
11:4 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?
11:5 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:
11:6 But now our soul is dried away: there
is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.
11:7 And the manna was as coriander seed,
and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium.
11:8 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.
11:9 And when the dew fell upon the camp in
the night, the manna fell upon it.
11:10 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.
11:11 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?
11:12 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?
11:13 Whence should I have flesh to give
unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh,
that we may eat.
11:14 I am not able to bear all this people
alone, because it is too heavy for me.
11:15 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.
11:16 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
11:17 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.
11:18 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.
11:19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two
days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days;
11:20 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?
11:21 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.
11:22 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?
11:23 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.
11:24 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.
11:25 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.
11:26 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.
11:27 And there ran a young man, and told
Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.
11:28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the
servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord
Moses, forbid them.
11:29 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!
11:30 And Moses gat him into the camp, he
and the elders of Israel.
11:31 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.
11:32 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.
11:33 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
11:34 And he called the name of that place
Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.
11:35 And the people journeyed from
Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.
12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against
Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had
married an Ethiopian woman.
12:2 And they said, Hath the LORD indeed
spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it.
12:3 (Now the man Moses was very meek,
above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
12:4 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.
12:5 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.
12:6 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.
12:7 My servant Moses is not so, who is
faithful in all mine house.
12:8 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?
12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled
against them; and he departed.
12:10 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.
12:11 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.
12:12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom
the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb.
12:13 And Moses cried unto the LORD,
saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee.
12:14 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.
12:15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp
seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in
12:16 And afterward the people removed from
Hazeroth, and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
13:2 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
13:3 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.
13:4 And these were their names: of the
tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zaccur.
13:5 Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the
son of Hori.
13:6 Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son
13:7 Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal the son
13:8 Of the tribe of Ephraim, Oshea the son
13:9 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the
son of Raphu.
13:10 Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the
son of Sodi.
13:11 Of the tribe of Joseph, namely, of
the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi.
13:12 Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son
13:13 Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son
13:14 Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the
son of Vophsi.
13:15 Of the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of
13:16 These are the names of the men which
Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun
13:17 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:
13:18 And see the land, what it is, and the
people that dwelleth therein, whether they be strong or weak, few or
13:19 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;
13:20 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.
13:21 So they went up, and searched the
land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath.
13:22 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.)
13:23 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.
13:24 The place was called the brook
Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel
cut down from thence.
13:25 And they returned from searching of
the land after forty days.
13:26 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.
13:27 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.
13:28 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.
13:29 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.
13:30 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.
13:31 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.
13:32 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.
13:33 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.
14:1 And all the congregation lifted up
their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
14:2 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!
14:3 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?
14:4 And they said one to another, Let us
make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
14:5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their
faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of
14:6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb
the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent
14:7 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.
14:8 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.
14:9 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
14:10 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.
14:11 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?
14:12 I will smite them with the
pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater
nation and mightier than they.
14:13 And Moses said unto the LORD, Then
the Egyptians shall hear it, (for thou broughtest up this people in
thy might from among them;)
14:14 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.
14:15 Now if thou shalt kill all this
people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee
will speak, saying,
14:16 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.
14:17 And now, I beseech thee, let the
power of my Lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying,
14:18 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.
14:19 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.
14:20 And the LORD said, I have pardoned
according to thy word:
14:21 But as truly as I live, all the earth
shall be filled with the glory of the LORD.
14:22 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
14:23 Surely they shall not see the land
which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that
provoked me see it:
14:24 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.
14:25 (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.
14:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses and
unto Aaron, saying,
14:27 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.
14:28 Say unto them, As truly as I live,
saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:
14:29 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
14:30 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.
14:31 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.
14:32 But as for you, your carcases, they
shall fall in this wilderness.
14:33 And your children shall wander in the
wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases
be wasted in the wilderness.
14:34 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
14:35 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
14:36 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,
14:37 Even those men that did bring up the
evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD.
14:38 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.
14:39 And Moses told these sayings unto all
the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.
14:40 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.
14:41 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye
transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper.
14:42 Go not up, for the LORD is not among
you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies.
14:43 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.
14:44 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.
14:45 Then the Amalekites came down, and
the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and
discomfited them, even unto Hormah.
15:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
15:2 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,
15:3 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:
15:4 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.
15:5 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.
15:6 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.
15:7 And for a drink offering thou shalt
offer the third part of an hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.
15:8 And when thou preparest a bullock for
a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace
offerings unto the LORD:
15:9 Then shall he bring with a bullock a
meat offering of three tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin
15:10 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.
15:11 Thus shall it be done for one
bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid.
15:12 According to the number that ye shall
prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number.
15:13 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.
15:14 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.
15:15 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.
15:16 One law and one manner shall be for
you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.
15:17 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
15:18 Speak unto the children of Israel,
and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
15:19 Then it shall be, that, when ye eat
of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the
15:20 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.
15:21 Of the first of your dough ye shall
give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations.
15:22 And if ye have erred, and not
observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto
15:23 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;
15:24 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.
15:25 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:
15:26 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.
15:27 And if any soul sin through
ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin
15:28 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.
15:29 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.
15:30 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
15:31 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.
15:32 And while the children of Israel were
in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the
15:33 And they that found him gathering
sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the
15:34 And they put him in ward, because it
was not declared what should be done to him.
15:35 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.
15:36 And all the congregation brought him
without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD
15:37 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
15:38 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:
15:39 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:
15:40 That ye may remember, and do all my
commandments, and be holy unto your God.
15:41 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.
16:1 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:
16:2 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:
16:3 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?
16:4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon
16:5 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.
16:6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and
all his company;
16:7 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.
16:8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I
pray you, ye sons of Levi:
16:9 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?
16:10 And he hath brought thee near to him,
and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the
16:11 For which cause both thou and all thy
company are gathered together against the LORD: and what is Aaron,
that ye murmur against him?
16:12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and
Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:
16:13 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
16:14 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.
16:15 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.
16:16 And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou
and all thy company before the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to
16:17 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.
16:18 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.
16:19 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
16:20 And the LORD spake unto Moses and
unto Aaron, saying,
16:21 Separate yourselves from among this
congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.
16:22 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?
16:23 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
16:24 Speak unto the congregation, saying,
Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.
16:25 And Moses rose up and went unto
Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.
16:26 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.
16:27 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.
16:28 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.
16:29 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.
16:30 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.
16:31 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:
16:32 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.
16:33 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.
16:34 And all Israel that were round about
them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us
16:35 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.
16:36 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
16:37 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.
16:38 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.
16:39 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:
16:40 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.
16:41 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.
16:42 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.
16:43 And Moses and Aaron came before the
tabernacle of the congregation.
16:44 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
16:45 Get you up from among this
congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell
upon their faces.
16:46 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.
16:47 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.
16:48 And he stood between the dead and the
living; and the plague was stayed.
16:49 Now they that died in the plague were
fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the
matter of Korah.
16:50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was
17:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
17:2 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.
17:3 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon
the rod of Levi: for one rod shall be for the head of the house of
17:4 And thou shalt lay them up in the
tabernacle of the congregation before the testimony, where I will meet
17:5 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.
17:6 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.
17:7 And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD
in the tabernacle of witness.
17:8 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.
17:9 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.
17:10 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.
17:11 And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.
17:12 And the children of Israel spake unto
Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.
17:13 Whosoever cometh any thing near unto
the tabernacle of the LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?
