The Beginning Restoration Translations of The Most Trusted Ekklesia Bible

 

 O1)1  The Book of Genesis

 

   {1:1} In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. {1:2} And the earth was empty, formless, gaseous clouds; and [the created] darkness  was upon the face of space: and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. {1:3} And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. {1:4} And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. {1:5} And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was the beginning dark of the evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, day He is One.

 

   {1:6} And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. {1:7} And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. {1:8} And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was the beginning dark of the evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, a second day.

   {1:9} And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. {1:10} And God called the dry land earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. {1:11} And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, [and]

fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed there, upon the earth: and it was so. {1:12} And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed there, after their kind: and God saw that it was good.  {1:13} And there was the beginning dark of the evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, a third day.

 

 

   {1:14} And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years: {1:15} and let them be for lights in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. {1:16} And God made the two great lights; the greater light to rule the

day, and the lesser light to rule the night: [he made] the stars also. {1:17} And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth, {1:18} and [light] to rule over the day and [dark to rule] over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.  {1:19} And there was the beginning dark of the  evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, a fourth day.

 

{1:20} And God said, Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. {1:21} And God created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature that moves, wherewith the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind: and God saw that it was good.

{1:22} And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.  {1:23} And there was the beginning dark of the evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, a fifth day.

 

   {1:24} And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kind: and it was so. {1:25} And God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps upon the ground after its kind: and God saw that it was

good. {1:26} And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. {1:27} And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him;

male and female created he them. {1:28} And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

{1:29} And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food: {1:30} and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the

heavens, and to everything that creeps upon the earth, wherein there is life, [I have given] every green herb for food: and it was so.

 

{1:31} And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And there was the beginning dark of the evening and there was the beginning light of the morning, the sixth day.

 

O1)2

   {2:1} And the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host

of them. {2:2} And on the seventh day God finished his work which he

had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he

had made. {2:3} And God blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it;

because that in it he rested from all his work which God had created

and made.

 

   {2:4} These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when

they were created, in the day that Yehovah God made earth and heaven.

{2:5} And no plant of the field was yet in the earth, and no herb of

the field had yet sprung up; for Yehovah God had not caused it to rain

upon the earth: and there was not a man to till the ground; {2:6} but

there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the

ground. {2:7} And Yehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and

breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living

soul. {2:8} And Yehovah God planted a garden eastward, in Eden; and

there he put the man whom he had formed. {2:9} And out of the ground

made Yehovah God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and

good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and

the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. {2:10} And a river went out

of Eden to water the garden; and from there it was parted, and became

four heads. {2:11} The name of the first is Pishon: that is it which

compasses the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; {2:12} and

the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.

{2:13} And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that

compasses the entire land of Cush. {2:14} And the name of the third

river is Hiddekel: that is it which goes in front of Assyria. And the

fourth river is the Euphrates. {2:15} And Yehovah God took the man, and

put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. {2:16} And

Yehovah God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you

may freely eat: {2:17} but of the tree of the knowledge of good and

evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat there

you shall surely die.

 

   {2:18} And Yehovah God said, It is not good that the man should be

alone; I will make him a help meet for him. {2:19} And out of the

ground Yehovah God formed every beast of the field, and every bird of

the heavens; and brought them unto the man to see what he would call

them: and what so ever the man called every living creature, that was the

name there. {2:20} And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the

birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; but for man

there was not found a help meet for him. {2:21} And Yehovah God caused

a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and he took one of his

ribs, and closed up the flesh instead there: {2:22} and the rib,

which Yehovah God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought

her unto the man. {2:23} And the man said, This is now bone of my

bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she

was taken out of Man. {2:24} Therefore shall a man leave his father and

his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one

flesh. {2:25} And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were

not ashamed.

 

O1)3

{3:1} Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field

which Yehovah God had made. And he said unto the woman, behold,  God has

said, you shall not eat of any tree of the garden? {3:2} And the woman

said unto the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may

eat: {3:3} but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the

garden, God has said, you shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch

it, lest you die. {3:4} And the serpent said unto the woman, you shall

not surely die: {3:5} for God does know that in the day you eat there,

then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as God, knowing good

and evil. {3:6} And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food,

and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be

desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit there, and did eat;

and she gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat. {3:7} And

the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked;

and they sewed fig-leaves together, and made themselves aprons. {3:8}

And they heard the voice of Yehovah God walking in the garden in the

[evening] cool of the day: and the man and his wife hid themselves from the

presence of Yehovah God amongst the trees of the garden.

 

   {3:9} And Yehovah God called unto the man, and said unto him, Where

are you? {3:10} And he said, I heard your voice in the garden, and I

was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. {3:11} And he said,

Who told you that you was naked? Have you eaten of the tree,

where I commanded you that you should not eat? {3:12} And the

man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the

tree, and I did eat. {3:13} And Yehovah God said unto the woman, What

is this you have done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me,

and I did eat. {3:14} And Yehovah God said unto the serpent, Because

you have done this, A cursed are you above all cattle, and above every

beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you

eat all the days of your life: {3:15} and I will put enmity between you

and the woman, and between your seed and her seed: he shall bruise your

head, and you shall bruise his heel. {3:16} Unto the woman he said, I

will greatly multiply your pain and your conception; in pain you shall

bring forth children; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he

shall rule over you. {3:17} And unto Adam he said, Because you have

heard unto the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree, of

which I commanded you, saying, you shall not eat of it: cursed is the

ground for your sake; in toil shall you eat of it all the days of your

life; {3:18} thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to you; and

you shall eat the herb of the field; {3:19} in the sweat of your face

shall you eat bread, till you return unto the ground; for out of it

was you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return.

{3:20} And the man called his wife's name Eve; because she was the

mother of all living. {3:21} And Yehovah God made for Adam and for his

wife coats of skins, and clothed them.

 

   {3:22} And Yehovah God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,

to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take

also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever-- {3:23} therefore

Yehovah God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground

from where he was taken. {3:24} So he drove out the man; and he placed

at the east of the garden of Eden the Cherubim, and the flame of a

sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

 

O1)4

 {4:1} And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare

Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with [the help of] Yehovah. {4:2}

And again she bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep,

but Cain was a tiller of the ground. {4:3} And in process of time it

came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering

unto Yehovah. {4:4} And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his

flock and of the fat there. And Yehovah had respect unto Abel and to

his offering: {4:5} but unto Cain and to his offering he had not

respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. {4:6} And

Yehovah said unto Cain, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance

fallen? {4:7} If you do well, shall it not be lifted up? and if

you do not well, sin couches at the door: and unto you shall be

its desire, but do you rule over it. {4:8} And Cain told Abel his

brother. And it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain

rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

 

   {4:9} And Yehovah said unto Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he

said, I know not: am I my brother's keeper? {4:10} And he said, What

have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries unto me from

the ground. {4:11} And now cursed are you from the ground, which has

opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand; {4:12}

when you till the ground, it shall not from here on yield unto you

its strength; a fugitive and a wanderer shall you be in the earth.

{4:13} And Cain said unto Yehovah, My punishment is greater than I can

bear. {4:14} Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of

the ground; and from your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive

and a wanderer in the earth; and it will come to pass, that anyone who

finds me will slay me. {4:15} And Yehovah said unto him, Therefore

anyone who slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And

Yehovah appointed a sign for Cain, lest any finding him should smite

him.

 

   {4:16} And Cain went out from the presence of Yehovah, and dwelt in

the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. {4:17} And Cain knew his wife;

and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he build a city, and called

the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. {4:18} And unto

Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat

Methushael; and Methushael begat Lamech. {4:19} And Lamech took unto

him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other

Zillah. {4:20} And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell

in tents and [have] cattle. {4:21} And his brother's name was Jubal: he

was the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe. {4:22} And

Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, the forger of every cutting

instrument of brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.

{4:23} And Lamech said unto his wives:

Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;

you wives of Lamech, hear unto my speech:

For I have slain a man for wounding me,

And a young man for bruising me:

{4:24} If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold,

Truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

 

   {4:25} And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called

his name Seth. For, [said she], God has appointed me another seed

instead of Abel; for Cain slew him. {4:26} And to Seth, to him also

there was born a son; and he called his name Enoch. Then began men to

call upon the name of Yehovah.

 

O1)5

   {5:1} This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that

God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; {5:2} male and

female created he them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam,

in the day when they were created. {5:3} And Adam lived a hundred and

thirty years, and begat [a son] in his own likeness, after his image;

and called his name Seth: {5:4} and the days of Adam after he begat

Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters. {5:5}

And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years:

and he died.

 

   {5:6} And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begat Enosh:

{5:7} and Seth lived after he begat Enosh eight hundred and seven

years, and begat sons and daughters: {5:8} and all the days of Seth

were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.

 

   {5:9} And Enosh lived ninety years, and begat Kenan. {5:10} and

Enosh lived after he begat Kenan eight hundred and fifteen years, and

begat sons and daughters: {5:11} and all the days of Enosh were nine

hundred and five years: and he died.

 

   {5:12} And Kenan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalalel: {5:13}

and Kenan lived after he begat Mahalalel eight hundred and forty years,

and begat sons and daughters: {5:14} and all the days of Kenan were

nine hundred and ten years: and he died.

 

   {5:15} And Mahalalel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:

{5:16} And Mahalalel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and

thirty years, and begat sons and daughters: {5:17} and all the days of

Mahalalel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.

 

   {5:18} And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and begat

Enoch: {5:19} and Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years,

and begat sons and daughters: {5:20} And all the days of Jared were

nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.

 

   {5:21} And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

{5:22} and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three

hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: {5:23} and all the days of

Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: {5:24} and Enoch walked

with God: and he was not; for God took him.

 

   {5:25} And Methuselah lived a hundred eighty and seven years, and

begat Lamech: {5:26} and Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven

hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters. {5:27} And

all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and

he died.

 

   {5:28} And Lamech lived a hundred eighty and two years, and begat a

son: {5:29} and he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall

comfort us in our work and in the toil of our hands, [which comes]

because of the ground which Yehovah has cursed. {5:30} And Lamech

lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat

sons and daughters: {5:31} And all the days of Lamech were seven

hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

 

   {5:32} And Noah was five hundred years old: And Noah begat Shem,

Ham, and Japheth.

 

 

O1)6

   {6:1} And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of

the ground, and daughters were born unto them, {6:2} that the sons of

God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them

wives of all that they chose. {6:3} And Yehovah said, My spirit shall

not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his

days be a hundred and twenty years. {6:4} The Nephilim were in the

earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came

unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them: the same

were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.

 

   {6:5} And Yehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the

earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only

evil continually. {6:6} And it repented Yehovah that he had made man on

the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. {6:7} And Yehovah said, I

will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both

man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; for it

repents me that I have made them. {6:8} But Noah found favor in the

eyes of Yehovah.

 

   {6:9} These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous working man,

[and] perfect in his generations: Noah walked with God. {6:10} And Noah

begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. {6:11} And the earth was

corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. {6:12} And

God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had

corrupted their way upon the earth.

 

   {6:13} And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before

me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I

will destroy them with the earth. {6:14} Make you an ark of gopher

wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and

outside with pitch. {6:15} And this is how you shall make it: the

length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits,

and the height of it thirty cubits. {6:16} A light shall you make to

the ark, and to a cubit shall you finish it upward; and the door of

the ark shall you set in the side there; with lower, second, and

third stories shall you make it. {6:17} And I, behold, I do bring the

flood of waters upon this earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the

breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is in the earth

shall die. {6:18} But I will establish my covenant with you; and you

shall come into the ark, you, and your sons, and your wife, and your

sons' wives with you. {6:19} And of every living thing of all flesh,

two of every sort shall you bring into the ark, to keep them alive

with you; they shall be male and female. {6:20} Of the birds after

their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing

of the ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come unto you,

to keep them alive. {6:21} And take you unto you of all food that is

eaten, and gather it to you; and it shall be for food for you, and

for them. {6:22} Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded

him, so did he.

 

 

O1)7

   {7:1} And Yehovah said unto Noah, Come you and all your house into

the ark; for you have I seen righteous works before me in this generation.

{7:2} Of every clean beast you shall take to you seven and seven, the

male and his female; and of the beasts that are not clean two, the male

and his female: {7:3} of the birds also of the heavens, seven and

seven, male and female, to keep seed alive upon the face of all the

earth. {7:4} For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the

earth forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have

made will I destroy from off the face of the ground. {7:5} And Noah did

according unto all that Yehovah commanded him.

 

   {7:6} And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters

was upon the earth. {7:7} And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife,

and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of

the flood. {7:8} Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and

of birds, and of everything that creeps upon the ground, {7:9} there

went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God

commanded Noah. {7:10} And it came to pass after the seven days, that

the waters of the flood were upon the earth. {7:11} In the six

hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second moon cycle, on the seventeenth

day of the moon, on the same day were all the fountains of the great

deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. {7:12} And the

rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

 

   {7:13} In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and

Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his

sons with them, into the ark; {7:14} they, and every beast after its

kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing

that creeps upon the earth after its kind, and every bird after its

kind, every bird of every sort. {7:15} And they went in unto Noah into

the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life. {7:16}

And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God

commanded him: and Yehovah shut him in. {7:17} And the flood was forty

days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and

it was lifted up above the earth. {7:18} And the waters prevailed, and

increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the

waters. {7:19} And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and

all the high mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered.

{7:20} Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains

were covered. {7:21} And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both

birds, and cattle, and beasts, and every creeping thing that creeps

upon the earth, and every man: {7:22} all in whose nostrils was the

breath of the spirit of life, of all that was on the dry land, died.

{7:23} And every living thing was destroyed that was upon the face of

the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping things, and birds of the

heavens; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only was

left, and they that were with him in the ark. {7:24} And the waters

prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.

 

 

O1)8

{8:1} And God remembered Noah, and all the beasts, and all the

cattle that were with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over

the earth, and the waters assuaged; {8:2} the fountains also of the

deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven

was restrained; {8:3} and the waters returned from off the earth

continually: and after the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters

decreased. {8:4} And the ark rested in the seventh moon cycle, on the

seventeenth day of the moon, upon the mountains of Ararat. {8:5} And

the waters decreased continually until the tenth moon cycle: in the tenth

of the moon cycle, on the first day of the dark moon, were the tops of the mountains

seen.

 

   {8:6} And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened

the window of the ark which he had made: {8:7} and he sent forth a

raven, and it went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up

from off the earth. {8:8} And he sent forth a dove from him, to see if

the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; {8:9} but the

dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him

to the ark; for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: and he

put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her in unto him into the

ark. {8:10} And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth

the dove out of the ark; {8:11} and the dove came in to him at

eventide; and, lo, in her mouth an olive-leaf plucked off: so Noah knew

that the waters were abated from off the earth. {8:12} And he stayed

yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove; and she returned not

again unto him any more.

 

   {8:13} And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the

first moon cycle [the resurrection moon Abib], the first day of the dark of the moon [Abib], the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dried. {8:14} And in the second moon cycle, on the seven and twentieth day of the [second moon], was the earth dry.

{8:15} And God spoke unto Noah, saying, {8:16} Go forth from the ark,

you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you. {8:17}

Bring forth with you every living thing that is with you of all

flesh, both birds, and cattle, and every creeping thing that creeps

upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be

fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. {8:18} And Noah went forth, and

his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him: {8:19} every

beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, what so ever moves upon the

earth, after their families, went forth out of the ark.

 

   {8:20} And Noah built an altar unto Yehovah, and took of every

clean beast, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt-offerings on

the altar. {8:21} And Yehovah smelled the sweet savor; and Yehovah said

in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's

sake, for that the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;

neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.

{8:22} While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and

heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

 

 

{O1)9}

   {9:1} And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be

fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. {9:2} And the fear of

you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and

upon every bird of the heavens; with all wherewith the ground teems,

and all the fishes of the sea, into your hand are they delivered. {9:3}

Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; as the green herb

have I given you all. {9:4} But flesh with the life there, [which is]

the blood there, shall you not eat. {9:5} And surely your blood, [the

blood] of your lives, will I require; at the hand of every beast will I

require it. And at the hand of man, even at the hand of every man's

brother, will I require the life of man. {9:6} Who so sheds man's

blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he

man. {9:7} And you, be you fruitful, and multiply; bring forth

abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.

 

   {9:8} And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

{9:9} And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your

seed after you; {9:10} and with every living creature that is with you,

the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you. Of all

that go out of the ark, even every beast of the earth. {9:11} And I

will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off

any more by the waters of the flood; neither shall there any more be a

flood to destroy the earth. {9:12} And God said, This is the token of

the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature

that is with you, for perpetual generations: {9:13} I do set my bow in

the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the

earth. {9:14} And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the

earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud, {9:15} and I will

remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living

creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to

destroy all flesh. {9:16} And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will

look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God

and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. {9:17}

And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant which I have

established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

 

   {9:18} And the sons of Noah, that went forth from the ark, were

Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. {9:19}

These three were the sons of Noah: and of these was the whole earth

overspread.

 

   {9:20} And Noah began to be a husbandman, and planted a vineyard:

{9:21} and he drank of the wine, and was drunk. And he was uncovered

within his tent. {9:22} And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the

nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren outside. {9:23} And

Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders,

and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father. And their

faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. {9:24}

And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done

unto him. {9:25} And he said, A cursed be Canaan; A servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

 

   {9:26} And he said,  Blessed be Yehovah, the God of Shem;

And let Canaan be his servant. {9:27} God enlarge Japheth,

And let him dwell in the tents of Shem; And let Canaan be his servant.

 

   {9:28} And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

{9:29} And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and

he died.

 

 

O1)10

   {10:1} Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, [namely],

of Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

 

   {10:2} The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan,

and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras. {10:3} And the sons of Gomer:

Ashkenaz, and Riphas, and Togarmah. {10:4} And the sons of Javan:

Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim. {10:5} Of these were the

isles of the nations divided in their lands, every one after his

tongue, after their families, in their nations.

 

   {10:6} And the sons of Ham: Cush, and Mizraim, and Put, and Canaan.

{10:7} And the sons of Cush: Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah,

and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba, and Dedan. {10:8} And Cush

begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. {10:9} He was a

mighty hunter before Yehovah: wherefore it is said, Like Nimrod a

mighty hunter before Yehovah. {10:10} And the beginning of his kingdom

was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

{10:11} Out of that land he went forth into Assyria, and built

Nineveh, and Rehoboth-Ir, and Calah, {10:12} and Resen between Nineveh

and Calah (the same is the great city). {10:13} And Mizraim begat

Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim, {10:14} and Pathrusim,

and Casluhim (where went forth the Philistines), and Caphtorim.

 

   {10:15} And Canaan begat Sidon his first-born, and Heth, {10:16} and

the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite, {10:17} and the

Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite, {10:18} and the Arvadite, and

the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the

Canaanite spread abroad. {10:19} And the border of the Canaanite was

from Sidon, as you go toward Gerar, unto Gaza; as you go toward

Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, unto Lasha. {10:20} These are

the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their

lands, in their nations.

 

   {10:21} And unto Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the

elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born. {10:22} The

sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram.

{10:23} And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.

{10:24} And Arpachshad begat Shelah; and Shelah begat Eber. {10:25} And

unto Eber were born two sons: the name of the one was Peleg. For in his

days was the earth divided. And his brother's name was Joktan. {10:26}

And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth, and Jerah,

{10:27} and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah, {10:28} and Obal, and

Abimael, and Sheba, {10:29} and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all

these were the sons of Joktan. {10:30} And their dwelling was from

Mesha, as you goes toward Spear, the mountain of the east. {10:31}

These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues,

in their lands, after their nations.

 

   {10:32} These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their

generations, in their nations: and of these were the nations divided in

the earth after the flood.

 

 

O1)11

   {11:1} And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.

{11:2} And it came to pass, as they journey east, that they found a

plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. {11:3} And they said

one to another, Come, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And

they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. {11:4} And

they said, Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top [may

reach] unto heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered

abroad upon the face of the whole earth. {11:5} And Yehovah came down

to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built.

{11:6} And Yehovah said, Behold, they are one people, and they have all

one language; and this is what they begin to do: and now nothing will

be withheld from them, which they purpose to do. {11:7} Come, let us

go down, and there confound their language, that they may not

understand one another's speech. {11:8} So Yehovah scattered them

abroad from there upon the face of all the earth: and they left off

building the city. {11:9} Therefore was the name of it called Babel;

because Yehovah did there confound the language of all the earth: and

from there did Yehovah scatter them abroad upon the face of all the

earth.

 

   {11:10} These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years

old, and begat Arpachshad two years after the flood. {11:11} and Shem

lived after he begat Arpachshad five hundred years, and begat sons and

daughters.

 

   {11:12} And Arpachshad lived five and thirty years, and begat

Shelah. {11:13} and Arpachshad lived after he begat Shelah four hundred

and three years, and begat sons and daughters.

 

   {11:14} And Shelah lived thirty years, and begat Eber: {11:15} and

Shelah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years, and

begat sons and daughters.

 

   {11:16} And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:

{11:17} and Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty

years, and begat sons and daughters.

 

   {11:18} And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu: {11:19} and

Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years, and begat

sons and daughters.

 

   {11:20} And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begat Serug: {11:21}

and Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years, and

begat sons and daughters.

 

   {11:22} And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor: {11:23} and

Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat sons and

daughters.

 

   {11:24} And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:

{11:25} and Nahor lived after he begat Terah a hundred and nineteen

years, and begat sons and daughters.

 

   {11:26} And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and

Haran.

 

   {11:27} Now these are the generations of Terah. Terah begat Abram,

Nahor, and Haran. And Haran begat Lot. {11:28} And Haran died before

his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

{11:29} And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife

was Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran,

the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah. {11:30} And Sarai was

barren; She had no child. {11:31} And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot

the son of Haran, his son's son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son

Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to

go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

{11:32} And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and

Terah died in Haran.

 

 

O1)12

   {12:1} Now Yehovah said unto Abram, Get you out of your country, and

from your kindred, and from your father's house, unto the land that I

will show you: {12:2} and I will make of you a great nation, and I

will bless you, and make your name great; and be you a blessing;

{12:3} and I will bless them that bless you, and him that curses you

will I curse: and in you shall all the families of the earth be

blessed. {12:4} So Abram went, as Yehovah had spoken unto him; and Lot

went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he

departed out of Haran. {12:5} And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot

his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and

the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into

the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. {12:6} And

Abram passed through the land unto the place of Shechem, unto the oak

of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. {12:7} And Yehovah

appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto your seed will I give this land: and

there built he an altar unto Yehovah, who appeared unto him. {12:8}

And he removed from there unto the mountain on the east of Beth-el,

and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Ai on the east:

and there he built an altar unto Yehovah, and called upon the name of

Yehovah. {12:9} And Abram journeys, going on still toward the South.

 

   {12:10} And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into

Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was sore in the land. {12:11}

And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he

said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that you are a fair woman

to look upon: {12:12} and it will come to pass, when the Egyptians

shall see you, that they will say, This is his wife: and they will

kill me, but they will save you alive. {12:13} Say, I pray you, you

are my sister; that it may be well with me for your sake, and that my

soul may live because of you. {12:14} And it came to pass, that, when

Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was

very fair. {12:15} And the princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her

to Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. {12:16} And

he dealt well with Abram for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and

he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and she-asses, and

camels. {12:17} And Yehovah plagued Pharaoh and his house with great

plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife. {12:18} And Pharaoh called

Abram, and said, What is this that you have done unto me? why did

you not tell me that she was your wife? {12:19} why did you say, She is

my sister, so that I took her to be my wife? now therefore behold your

wife, take her, and go your way. {12:20} And Pharaoh gave men charge

concerning him: and they brought him on the way, and his wife, and all

that he had.  {12:21} And in his name shall the Gentiles hope.

 

   {12:22} Then was brought unto him one possessed with a demon, blind

and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the dumb man spoke and saw.

{12:23} And all the multitudes were amazed, and said, Can this be the

son of David? {12:24} But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This

man does not cast out demons, but by Beelzebub the prince of the

demons. {12:25} And knowing their thoughts he said unto them, Every

kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city

or house divided against itself shall not stand: {12:26} and if Satan

cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his

kingdom stand? {12:27} And if I by Beelzebub cast out demons, by whom

do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

{12:28} But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then is the

kingdom of God come upon you. {12:29} Or how can one enter into the

house of the strong [man,] and spoil his goods, except he first bind

the strong [man]? and then he will spoil his house. {12:30} He that is

not with me is against me, and he that gathers not with me

scatters. {12:31} Therefore I say unto you, Every sin and blasphemy

shall be forgiven unto men; but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall

not be forgiven. {12:32} And anyone who shall speak a word against the

Son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but anyone who shall speak against

the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world,

nor in that which is to come. {12:33} Either make the tree good, and

its fruit good; or make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for

the tree is known by its fruit. {12:34} you offspring of vipers, how can

you, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the

heart the mouth speak. {12:35} The good man out of his good treasure

brings forth good things: and the evil man out of his evil treasure

brings forth evil things. {12:36} And I say unto you, that every

word that stops righteous work that men shall speak, they shall give account of it in the day of judgment. {12:37} For by your words you shall be judged sinless, and by

your words you shall be condemned.

 

   {12:38} Then certain of the scribes and Pharisees answered him,

saying, Teacher, we would see a sign from you. {12:39} But he answered

and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a

sign; and there shall no sign be given it but the sign of Jonah the

prophet: {12:40} for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the

belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three

nights in the heart of the earth. {12:41} The men of Nineveh shall

stand up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it:

for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, a greater than

Jonah is here. {12:42} The queen of the south shall rise up in the

judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from

the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold, a

greater than Solomon is here. {12:43} But the unclean spirit, when he

is gone out of the man, passes through waterless places, seeking rest,

and finds it not. {12:44} Then he said, I will return into my house

where I came out; and when he is come, he finds it empty, swept, and

garnished. {12:45} Then goes he, and takes with himself seven other

spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and

the last state of that man becomes worse than the first. Even so shall

it be also unto this evil generation.

 

   {12:46} While he was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his

mother and his brethren stood outside, seeking to speak to him. {12:47}

And one said unto him, Behold, your mother and your brethren stand

outside, seeking to speak to you. {12:48} But he answered and said

unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

{12:49} And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and

said, Behold, my mother and my brethren! {12:50} For anyone who shall do

the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister,

and mother.

 

 

O1)13

   {13:1} And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all

that he had, and Lot with him, into the South. {13:2} And Abram was

very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. {13:3} And he went on his

journeys from the South even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent

had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Ai, {13:4} unto the

place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there

Abram called on the name of Yehovah. {13:5} And Lot also, who went with

Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. {13:6} And the land was not

able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance

was great, so that they could not dwell together. {13:7} And there was

a strife between the herdsmen of Abram's cattle and the herdsmen of

Lot's cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelt then in the

land. {13:8} And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray

you, between me and you, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen;

for we are brethren. {13:9} Is not the whole land before you? separate

yourself, I pray you, from me. If [you will take] the left hand, then

I will go to the right. Or if [you take] the right hand, then I will

go to the left. {13:10} And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the

Plain of the Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before

Yehovah destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Yehovah, like

the land of Egypt, as you go unto Zoar. {13:11} So Lot chose him

all the Plain of the Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated

themselves the one from the other. {13:12} Abram dwelt in the land of

Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the Plain, and moved his tent as

far as Sodom. {13:13} Now the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners

against Yehovah exceedingly.

 

   {13:14} And Yehovah said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated

from him, Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you

are, northward and southward and eastward and westward: {13:15} for all

the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed for

ever. {13:16} And I will make your seed as the dust of the earth: so

that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then may your seed also

be numbered. {13:17} Arise, walk through the land in the length of it

and in the breadth of it; for unto you will I give it. {13:18} And

Abram moved his tent, and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which

are in Hebron, and built there an altar unto Yehovah.

   {14:1} And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar,

Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of

Goiim, {14:2} that they made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with

Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of

Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar). {14:3} All these

joined together in the vale of Siddim (the same is the Salt Sea).

{14:4} Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth

year they rebelled. {14:5} And in the fourteenth year came

Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaim

in Ashteroth-karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in

Shaveh-kiriathaim, {14:6} and the Horites in their mount Seir, unto

Elparan, which is by the wilderness. {14:7} And they returned, and came

to En-mishpat (the same is Kadesh), and smote all the country of the

Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazazon-tamar. {14:8}

And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the

king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same

is Zoar); and they set the battle in array against them in the vale of

Siddim; {14:9} against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of

Goiim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four

kings against the five. {14:10} Now the vale of Siddim was full of

slime pits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and they fell

there, and they that remained fled to the mountain. {14:11} And they

took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and

went their way. {14:12} And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who

dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed.

 

   {14:13} And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the

Hebrew: now he dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, the Amorite, brother of

School, and brother of Anger; and these were confederate with Abram.

{14:14} And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he led

forth his trained men, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen,

and pursued as far as Dan. {14:15} And he divided himself against them

by night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them unto

Hookah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. {14:16} And he brought

back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot, and his

goods, and the women also, and the people.

 

   {14:17} And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return

from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him, at

the vale of Shave (the same is the King's Vale). {14:18} And

Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was

priest of God Most High. {14:19} And he blessed him, and said, Blessed

be Abram of God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth: {14:20} and

blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your

hand. And he gave him a tenth of all. {14:21} And the king of Sodom

said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to yourself.

{14:22} And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lifted up my hand

unto Yehovah, God Most High, possessor of heaven and earth, {14:23}

that I will not take a thread nor a shoe-latchet nor anything that is

yours, lest you should say, I have made Abram rich: {14:24} save

only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men

that went with me, Anger, School, and Mamre. Let them take their portion.

 

 

O1)15

   {15:1} After these things the word of Yehovah came unto Abram in a

vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am your shield, [and] your exceeding

great reward. {15:2} And Abram said, O Lord Yehovah, what will you

give me, seeing I go childless, and he that shall be possessor of my

house is Eleazar of Damascus? {15:3} And Abram said, Behold, to me you

have given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. {15:4}

And, behold, the word of Yehovah came unto him, saying, This man shall

not be your heir; But he that shall come forth out of your own bowels

shall be your heir. {15:5} And he brought him forth abroad, and said,

Look now toward heaven, and number the stars, if you be able to number

them: and he said unto him, So shall your seed be. {15:6} And he

believed in [obedience] Yehovah; and he reckoned it to him for [good] works of the law.

{15:7} And he said unto him, I am Yehovah that brought you out of Ur

of the Chaldee, to give you this land to inherit it. {15:8} And he

said, O Lord Yehovah, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?

{15:9} And he said unto him, Take me a heifer three years old, and a

she-goat three years old, and a ram three years old, and a turtle-dove,

and a young pigeon. {15:10} And he took him all these, and divided them

in the midst, and laid each half over against the other: but the birds

divided he not. {15:11} And the birds of prey came down upon the

carcasses, and Abram drove them away.

 

   {15:12} And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon

Abram; and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him. {15:13} And

he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that your seed shall be sojourners

in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall

afflict them four hundred years; {15:14} and also that nation, whom

they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with

great substance. {15:15} But you shall go to your fathers in peace;

you shall be buried in a good old age. {15:16} And in the fourth

generation they shall come here again; for the work without law of the

Amorite is not yet full. {15:17} And it came to pass, that, when the

sun went down, and it was dark, behold, a smoking furnace, and a

flaming torch that passed between these pieces. {15:18} In that day

Yehovah made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto your seed have I given

this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river

Euphrates: {15:19} the Kentia, and the Kunzite, and the Ammonite,

{15:20} and the Hittite, and the Parasite, and the Rephaim, {15:21}

and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Graphite, and the

Jobsite.

 

 

O1)16

   {16:1} Now Sara, Abram's wife, bare him no children: and she had a

handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. {16:2} And Sara said unto

Abram, Behold now, Yehovah has restrained me from bearing; go in, I

pray you, unto my handmaid; it may be that I shall obtain children by

her. And Abram heard the voice of Sara. {16:3} And Sara,

Abram's wife, took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, after Abram had

dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to Abram her

husband to be his wife. {16:4} And he went in unto Hagar, and she

conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was

despised in her eyes. {16:5} And Sara said unto Abram, My wrong be

upon you: I gave my handmaid into they bosom; and when she saw that

she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: Yehovah judge between me

and you. {16:6} But Abram said unto Sara, Behold, your maid is in your

hand; do to her that which is good in your eyes. And Sara dealt

hardly with her, and she fled from her face.

 

   {16:7} And the messenger of Yehovah found her by a fountain of water in

the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shut. {16:8} And he said,

Hagar, Sari's handmaid, where did you come? and where do you go?

And she said, I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sara. {16:9}

And the messenger of Yehovah said unto her, Return to your mistress, and

submit yourself under her hands. {16:10} And the messenger of Yehovah said

unto her, I will greatly multiply your seed, that it shall not be

numbered for multitude. {16:11} And the messenger of Yehovah said unto her,

Behold, you are with child, and shall bear a son; and you shall call

his name Ishmael, because Yehovah has heard your affliction. {16:12}

And he shall be [as] a wild ass among men; his hand [shall be] against

every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell over

against all his brethren. {16:13} And she called the name of Yehovah

that spoke unto her, you are a God that sees: for she said, Have I

even here looked after him that sees me? {16:14} Wherefore the well

was called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

 

   {16:15} And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called the name of his

son, whom Hagar bare, Ishmael. {16:16} And Abram was fourscore and six

years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.

 

 

O1)17

   {17:1} And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, Yehovah

appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am God Almighty; walk before

me, and be you perfect. {17:2} And I will make my covenant between me

and you, and will multiply you exceedingly. {17:3} And Abram fell on

his face: and God talked with him, saying, {17:4} As for me, behold, my

covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of

nations. {17:5} Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, but

your name shall be Abraham; for the father of a multitude of nations

have I made you. {17:6} And I will make you exceeding fruitful, and I

will make nations of you, and kings shall come out of you. {17:7} And

I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after

you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a

God unto you and to your seed after you. {17:8} And I will give unto

you, and to your seed after you, the land of your traveling the

land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

 

   {17:9} And God said unto Abraham, And as for you, you shall keep

my covenant, you, and your seed after you throughout their

generations. {17:10} This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between

me and you and your seed after you: every male among you shall be

circumcised. {17:11} And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your

foreskin; and it shall be a token of a covenant betwixt me and you.

{17:12} And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you,

every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house,

or bought with money of any foreigner that is not of your seed. {17:13}

He that is born in your house, and he that is bought with your money,

must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for

an everlasting covenant. {17:14} And the uncircumcised male who is not

circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut off

from his people; he has broken my covenant.

 

   {17:15} And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai your wife, you shall

not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. {17:16} And I

will bless her, and I will give you a son of her: behold, I will

bless her, and she shall be [a mother of] nations; kings of peoples

shall be of her. {17:17} Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed,

and said in his heart, shall a child be born unto him that is a hundred

years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? {17:18} And

Abraham said unto God, Oh that Ishmael might live before you! {17:19}

And God said, Nay, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son; and you

shall call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him

for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. {17:20} And as for

Ishmael, I have heard you: behold, I have blessed him, and will make

him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall

he beget, and I will make him a great nation. {17:21} But my covenant

will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear unto you at this

set time in the next year.

 

   {17:22} And he left off talking with him, and God went up from

Abraham. {17:23} And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were

born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male

among the men of Abraham's house, and circumcised the flesh of their

foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him. {17:24} And

Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the

flesh of his foreskin. {17:25} And Ishmael his son was thirteen years

old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. {17:26} In

the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son. {17:27}

And all the men of his house, those born in the house, and those bought

with money of a foreigner, were circumcised with him.

 

 

O1)18

   {18:1} And Yehovah appeared unto him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat

in the tent door in the heat of the day; {18:2} and he lifted up his

eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood over against him: and when he

saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself to

the earth, {18:3} and said, My lord, if now I have found favor in your

sight, pass not away, I pray you, from your servant: {18:4} let now a

little water be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under

the tree: {18:5} and I will fetch a morsel of bread, and strengthen you

your heart; after that you shall pass on: forasmuch as you are come to

your servant. And they said, So do, as you have said. {18:6} And

Abraham hurried into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly

three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes. {18:7} And

Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave

it unto the servant; and he hurried to dress it. {18:8} And he took

butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before

them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.

 

   {18:9} And they said unto him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said,

Behold, in the tent. {18:10} And he said, I will certainly return unto

you when the season comes round; and, lo, Sarah your wife shall have a

son. And Sarah heard in the tent door, which was behind him. {18:11}

Now Abraham and Sarah were old, [and] well stricken in age; it had

ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. {18:12} And Sarah

laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have

pleasure, my lord being old also? {18:13} And Yehovah said unto

Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, shall I of a surety bear a

child, who am old? {18:14} Is anything too hard for Yehovah? At the set

time I will return unto you, when the season comes round, and Sarah

shall have a son. {18:15} Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for

she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but you did laugh.

 

   {18:16} And the men rose up from there, and looked toward Sodom:

and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. {18:17} And

Yehovah said, shall I hide from Abraham that which I do; {18:18} seeing

that Abraham had surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the

nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? {18:19} For I have known

him, to the end that he may command his children and his household

after him, that they may keep the way of Yehovah, to do good works of the law

and justice; to the end that Yehovah may bring upon Abraham that which

he has spoken of him. {18:20} And Yehovah said, Because the cry of

Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

{18:21} I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether

according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will

know.

 

   {18:22} And the men turned from there, and went toward Sodom: but

Abraham stood yet before Yehovah. {18:23} And Abraham drew near, and

said, Will you consume the righteous workers with the wicked? {18:24}

Peradventure there are fifty righteous workers within the city: will you

consume and not spare the place for the fifty righteous workers that are

therein? {18:25} That be far from you to do after this manner, to slay

the righteous worker with the wicked, that so the righteous worker should be as the

wicked; that be far from you: shall not the Judge of all the earth do

right? {18:26} And Yehovah said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous workers

within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sake.

{18:27} And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me

to speak unto the Lord, who am but dust and ashes: {18:28} peradventure

there shall lack five of the fifty righteous workers: will you destroy all the

city for lack of five? And he said, I will not destroy it, if I find

there forty and five. {18:29} And he spoke unto him yet again, and

said, Peradventure ‘there shall be forty found there. And he said, I

will not do it for the forty's sake. {18:30} And he said, Oh let not

the Lord be angry, and I will speak: what if there shall thirty be

found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

{18:31} And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the

Lord: suppose there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I

will not destroy it for the twenty's sake. {18:32} And he said, Oh let

not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: what if

ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for the

ten's sake. {18:33} And Yehovah went his way, as soon as he had left

off communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

 

 

O1)19

   {19:1} And the two messengers came to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the

gate of Sodom: and Lot saw them, and rose up to meet them; and he bowed

himself with his face to the earth; {19:2} and he said, Behold now, my

lords, turn aside, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all

night, and wash your feet, and you shall rise up early, and go on your

way. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.

{19:3} And he urged them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and

entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake

unleavened bread, and they did eat. {19:4} But before they lay down,

the men of the city, [even] the men of Sodom, compassed the house

round, both young and old, all the people from every quarter; {19:5}

and they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men that

came in to you this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know

them. {19:6} And Lot went out unto them to the door, and shut the door

after him. {19:7} And he said, I pray you, my brethren, do not so

wickedly. {19:8} Behold now, I have two daughters that have not known

man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do you to them as

is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing, forasmuch as they

are come under the shadow of my roof. {19:9} And they said, Stand back.

And they said, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be

a judge: now will we deal worse with you, than with them. And they

pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and drew near to break the door.

{19:10} But the men put forth their hand, and brought Lot into the

house to them, and shut to the door. {19:11} And they smote the men

that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and

great, so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

 

   {19:12} And the men said unto Lot, Have you here any besides?

son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whom so ever you have

in the city, bring them out of the place: {19:13} for we will destroy

this place, because the cry of them is waxed great before Yehovah: and

Yehovah has sent us to destroy it. {19:14} And Lot went out, and spoke

unto his sons-in-law, who married his daughters, and said, Up, get you

out of this place; for Yehovah will destroy the city. But he seemed

unto his sons-in-law as one that mocked. {19:15} And when the morning

arose, then the messengers rushed Lot, saying, Arise, take your wife, and

your two daughters that are here, lest you be consumed in the works without law

of the city. {19:16} But he lingered; and the men laid hold upon his

hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two

daughters, Yehovah being merciful unto him; and they brought him forth,

and set him outside the city. {19:17} And it came to pass, when they

had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for your life; look

not behind you, neither stay you in all the Plain; escape to the

mountain, lest you be consumed. {19:18} And Lot said unto them, Oh,

not so, my lord: {19:19} behold now, your servant has found favor in

your sight, and you have magnified your loving kindness, which you have

showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain,

lest evil overtake me, and I die: {19:20} behold now, this city is near

to flee unto, and it is a little one. Oh let me escape there (is it

not a little one?), and my soul shall live. {19:21} And he said unto

him, See, I have accepted you concerning this thing also, that I will

not overthrow the city of which you have spoken. {19:22} You,

hurry escape there; for I cannot do anything until you go there.

Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.

 

   {19:23} The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot came unto Zoar.

{19:24} Then Yehovah rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and

fire from Yehovah out of heaven; {19:25} and he overthrew those cities,

and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that

which grew upon the ground. {19:26} But his wife looked back from

behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. {19:27} And Abraham gat up

early in the morning to the place where he had stood before Yehovah:

{19:28} and he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the

land of the Plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the land went up

as the smoke of a furnace.

 

   {19:29} And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the

Plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of

the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in which Lot dwelt.

 

   {19:30} And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and

his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he

dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. {19:31} And the first-born

said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the

earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth: {19:32}

come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that

we may preserve seed of our father. {19:33} And they made their father

drink wine that night: and the first-born went in, and lay with her

father; and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose. {19:34}

And it came to pass on the morrow, that the first-born said unto the

younger, Behold, I lay last night with my father: let us make him

drink wine this night also; and go you in, and lie with him, that we

may preserve seed of our father. {19:35} And they made their father

drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him;

and he knew not when she lay down, nor when she arose. {19:36} Thus

were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. {19:37} And

the first-born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the

father of the Moabites unto this day. {19:38} And the younger, she also

bare a son, and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the

children of Ammon unto this day.

 

 

O1)20

   {20:1} And Abraham traveled from there toward the land of the

South, and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur. And he sojourned in Gerar.

{20:2} And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister. And

Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah. {20:3} But God came to

Abimelech in a dream of the night, and said to him, Behold, you are

but a dead man, because of the woman whom you have taken. For she is a

man's wife. {20:4} Now Abimelech had not come near her. And he said,

Lord, will you slay even a righteous working nation? {20:5} Said he not

himself unto me, She is my sister? And she, even she herself said, He

is my brother. In the integrity of my heart and the innocence of my

hands have I done this. {20:6} And God said unto him in the dream, behold,

I know that in the integrity of your heart you has done this, and I

also withheld you from sinning against me. Therefore suffered I you

not to touch her. {20:7} Now therefore restore the man's wife. For he

is a prophet, and he shall pray for you, and you shall live. And if

you restore her not, know you that you shall surely die, you, and

all that are yours.

 

   {20:8} And Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his

servants, and told all these things in their ear. And the men were sore

afraid. {20:9} Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What

have you done unto us? And wherein have I sinned against you, that

you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? you have done

deeds unto me that ought not to be done. {20:10} And Abimelech said

unto Abraham, What saw you, that you have done this thing? {20:11}

And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in

this place. And they will slay me for my wife's sake. {20:12} And

 she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father, but not

the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife: {20:13} and it came

to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I

said unto her, This is your kindness which you shall show unto me. At

every place where we shall come, say of me, He is my brother. {20:14}

And Abimelech took sheep and oxen, and men-servants and women-servants,

and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife. {20:15}

And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you. Dwell where it

pleases you. {20:16} And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given your

brother a thousand pieces of silver. Behold, it is for you a covering

of the eyes to all that are with you. And in respect of all you are

righted. {20:17} And Abraham prayed unto God. And God healed Abimelech,

and his wife, and his maid-servants. And they bare children. {20:18}

For Yehovah had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech,

because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.

 

O1)21

   {21:1} And Yehovah visited Sarah as he had said, and Yehovah did

unto Sarah as he had spoken. {21:2} And Sarah conceived, and bare

Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken

to him. {21:3} And Abraham called the name of his son that was born

unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. {21:4} And Abraham circumcised

his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.

{21:5} And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born

unto him. {21:6} And Sarah said, God has made me to laugh. Every one

that hears will laugh with me. {21:7} And she said, Who would have

said unto Abraham, that Sarah should give children suck? For I have

borne him a son in his old age.

 

   {21:8} And the child grew, and was weaned. And Abraham made a great

feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. {21:9} And Sarah saw the son of

Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne unto Abraham, mocking. {21:10}

Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this handmaid and her son.

For the son of this handmaid shall not be heir with my son, even with

Isaac. {21:11} And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight on

account of his son. {21:12} And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be

grievous in your sight because of the lad, and because of your handmaid.

In all that Sarah said unto you, hear unto her voice. For in Isaac

shall your seed be called. {21:13} And also of the son of the handmaid

will I make a nation, because he is your seed. {21:14} And Abraham rose

up early in the morning, and took bread and a bottle of water, and gave

it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and [gave her] the child,

and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of

Beer-sheba. {21:15} And the water in the bottle was spent, and she cast

the child under one of the shrubs. {21:16} And she went, and sat her

down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot. For she

said, Let me not look upon the death of the child. And she sat over

against him, and lifted up her voice, and wept. {21:17} And God heard

the voice of the lad. And the messenger of God called to Hagar out of

heaven, and said unto her, What ails you, Hagar? Fear not. For God

has heard the voice of the lad where he is. {21:18} Arise, lift up the

lad, and hold him in your hand. For I will make him a great nation.

{21:19} And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she

went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. {21:20}

And God was with the lad, and he grew. And he dwelt in the wilderness,

and became, as he grew up, an archer. {21:21} And he dwelt in the

wilderness of Paran. And his mother took him a wife out of the land of

Egypt.

 

   {21:22} And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phicol

the captain of his host spoke unto Abraham, saying, God is with you in

all that you do. {21:23} Now therefore swear unto me here by God

that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my

son's son. But according to the kindness that I have done unto you,

you shall do unto me, and to the land wherein you have sojourned.

{21:24} And Abraham said, I will swear. {21:25} And Abraham reproved

Abimelech because of the well of water, which Abimelech's servants had

violently taken away. {21:26} And Abimelech said, I know not who has

done this thing. Neither did you tell me, neither yet heard I of it,

but to-day. {21:27} And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto

Abimelech. And they two made a covenant. {21:28} And Abraham set seven

ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. {21:29} And Abimelech said unto

Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which you have set by

themselves? {21:30} And he said, These seven ewe lambs shall you take

of my hand, that it may be a witness unto me, that I have dug this

well. {21:31} Wherefore he called that place Beer-sheba. Because there

they swore both of them. {21:32} So they made a covenant at Beer-sheba.

And Abimelech rose up, and Phicol the captain of his host, and they

returned into the land of the Philistines. {21:33} And [Abraham]

planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of

Yehovah, the Everlasting God. {21:34} And Abraham sojourned in the land

of the Philistines many days.

 

 

O1)22

   {22:1} And it came to pass after these things, that God did prove

Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham. And he said, Here am I. {22:2} And

he said, Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, even

Isaac, and get you into the land of Moriah. And offer him there for a

burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell you of.

{22:3} And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and

took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son. And he clave the

wood for the burnt-offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of

which God had told him. {22:4} On the third day Abraham lifted up his

eyes, and saw the place afar off. {22:5} And Abraham said unto his

young men, Abide you here with the ass, and I and the lad will go

yonder; and we will worship, and come again to you. {22:6} And Abraham

took the wood of the burnt-offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son.

And he took in his hand the fire and the knife. And they went both of

them together. {22:7} And Isaac spoke unto Abraham his father, and

said, My father. And he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold,

the fire and the wood. But where is the lamb for a burnt-offering?

{22:8} And Abraham said, God will provide himself the lamb for a

burnt-offering, my son. So they went both of them together.

 

   {22:9} And they came to the place which God had told him of. And

Abraham built the altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound

Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. {22:10} And

Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

{22:11} And the messenger of Yehovah called unto him out of heaven, and

said, Abraham, Abraham. And he said, Here I am. {22:12} And he said,

Lay not your hand upon the lad, neither do you anything unto him. For

now I know that you fear God, seeing you have not withheld your

son, your only son, from me. {22:13} And Abraham lifted up his eyes,

and looked, and behold, behind [him] a ram caught in the thicket by his

horns. And Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a

burnt-offering in the stead of his son. {22:14} And Abraham called the

name of that place Yehovah-jireh. As it is said to this day, In the

mount of Yehovah it shall be provided. {22:15} And the messenger of Yehovah

called unto Abraham a second time out of heaven, {22:16} and said, By

myself have I sworn, said Yehovah, because you have done this thing,

and have not withheld your son, your only son, {22:17} that in blessing

I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the

stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is upon the seashore. And

your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. {22:18} And in your seed

shall all the nations of the earth be blessed. Because you have obeyed

my voice. {22:19} So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose

up and went together to Beer-sheba. And Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.

 

   {22:20} And it came to pass after these things, that it was told

Abraham, saying, Behold, Milcah, she also has borne children unto your

brother Nahor. {22:21} Uz his first-born, and Buz his brother, and

Kemuel the father of Aram. {22:22} And Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash,

and Jidlaph, and Bethuel. {22:23} And Bethuel begat Rebekah. These

eight did Milcah bear to Nahor, Abraham's brother. {22:24} And his

concubine, whose name was Reumah, she also bare Tebah, and Gaham, and

Tahash, and Maacah.

 

 

O1)23

   {23:1} And the life of Sarah was a hundred and seven and twenty

years. These were the years of the life of Sarah. {23:2} And Sarah died

in Kiriath-arba (the same is Hebron), in the land of Canaan. And

Abraham came to grieve for Sarah, and to weep for her. {23:3} And

Abraham rose up from before his dead, and spoke unto the children of

Heth, saying, {23:4} I am a stranger and a sojourner with you. Give me

a possession of a burying-place with you, that I may bury my dead out

of my sight. {23:5} And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying

unto him, {23:6} Hear us, my lord. you are a prince of God among us.

In the choice of our sepulchers bury your dead. None of us shall

withhold from you his sepulcher, but that you may bury your dead.

{23:7} And Abraham rose up, and bowed himself to the people of the

land, even to the children of Heth. {23:8} And he communed with them,

saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight,

hear me, and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar, {23:9} that he

may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he has, which is in the end

of his field. For the full price let him give it to me in the midst of

you for a possession of a burying-place. {23:10} Now Ephron was sitting

in the midst of the children of Heth. And Ephron the Hittite answered

Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went

in at the gate of his city, saying, {23:11} Nay, my lord, hear me. The

field give I you, and the cave that is therein, I give it you. In the

presence of the children of my people give I it you. Bury your dead.

{23:12} And Abraham bowed himself down before the people of the land.

{23:13} And he spoke unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the

land, saying, But if you will, I pray you, hear me. I will give the

price of the field. Take it of me, and I will bury my dead there.

{23:14} And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him, {23:15} My lord,

hear unto me. A piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver,

what is that betwixt me and you? Bury therefore your dead. {23:16} And

Abraham heard unto Ephron. And Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver

which he had named in the audience of the children of Heth, four

hundred shekels of silver, current [money] with the merchant.

 

   {23:17} So the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was

before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the

trees that were in the field, that were in all the border of it round

about, were made sure {23:18} unto Abraham for a possession in the

presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate

of his city. {23:19} And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in

the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre (the same is Hebron),

in the land of Canaan. {23:20} And the field, and the cave that is

therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a

burying-place by the children of Heth.

 

 

01)24

   {24:1} And Abraham was old, [and] well stricken in age. And Yehovah

had blessed Abraham in all things. {24:2} And Abraham said unto his

servant, the elder of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put,

I pray you, your hand under my thigh. {24:3} And I will make you swear

by Yehovah, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will

not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among

whom I dwell. {24:4} But you shall go unto my country, and to my

kindred, and take a wife for my son Isaac. {24:5} And the servant said

unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto

this land. Must I needs bring your son again unto the land from where

you came? {24:6} And Abraham said unto him, Beware you that you

bring not my son there again. {24:7} Yehovah, the God of heaven, who

took me from my father's house, and from the land of my nativity, and

who spoke unto me, and who swore unto me, saying, Unto your seed will I

give this land. He will send his messenger before you, and you shall take

a wife for my son from there. {24:8} And if the woman be not willing

to follow you, then you shall be clear from this my oath. Only you

shall not bring my son there again. {24:9} And the servant put his

hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning

this matter.

 

   {24:10} And the servant took ten camels, of the camels of his

master, and departed, having all goodly things of his master's in his

hand. And he arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.

{24:11} And he made the camels to kneel down outside the city by the

well of water at the time of evening, the time that women go out to

draw water. {24:12} And he said, O Yehovah, the God of my master

Abraham, send me, I pray you, good speed this day, and show kindness

unto my master Abraham. {24:13} Behold, I am standing by the fountain

of water. And the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to

draw water. {24:14} And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I

shall say, Let down your pitcher, I pray you, that I may drink. And she

shall say, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also. Let the same

be she that you have appointed for your servant Isaac. And thereby

shall I know that you have showed kindness unto my master. {24:15} And

it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah

came out, who was born to Bethuel the son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor,

Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. {24:16} And the

damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known

her. And she went down to the fountain, and filled her pitcher, and

came up. {24:17} And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Give me to

drink, I pray you, a little water from your pitcher. {24:18} And she

said, Drink, my lord. And she hurried, and let down her pitcher upon her

hand, and gave him drink. {24:19} And when she had done giving him

drink, she said, I will draw for your camels also, until they have done

drinking. {24:20} And she hurried, and emptied her pitcher into the

trough, and ran again unto the well to draw, and drew for all his

camels. {24:21} And the man looked intently at her, holding his

peace, to know whether Yehovah had made his journey prosperous or not.

{24:22} And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the

man took a golden ring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for

her hands of ten shekels weight of gold, {24:23} and said, Whose

daughter are you? Tell me, I pray you. Is there room in your father's

house for us to lodge in? {24:24} And she said unto him, I am the

daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, whom she bare unto Nahor.

{24:25} She said unto him, We have both straw and provender

enough, and room to lodge in. {24:26} And the man bowed his head, and

worshipped Yehovah. {24:27} And he said, Blessed be Yehovah, the God of

my master Abraham, who has not forsaken his loving kindness and his

truth toward my master. As for me, Yehovah has led me in the way to

the house of my master's brethren.

 

   {24:28} And the damsel ran, and told her mother's house according to

these words. {24:29} And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban:

and Laban ran out unto the man, unto the fountain. {24:30} And it came

to pass, when he saw the ring, and the bracelets upon his sister's

hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, Thus

spoke the man unto me. That he came unto the man. And, behold, he was

standing by the camels at the fountain. {24:31} And he said, Come in,

you blessed of Yehovah. Why do you stand outside? For I have

prepared the house, and room for the camels. {24:32} And the man came

into the house, and he unhitched the camels. And he gave straw and

provender for the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of

the men that were with him. {24:33} And there was set food before him

to eat. But he said, I will not eat, until I have told mine errand. And

he said, Speak on. {24:34} And he said, I am Abraham's servant. {24:35}

And Yehovah has blessed my master greatly. And he is become great. And

he has given him flocks and herds, and silver and gold, and

men-servants and maid-servants, and camels and asses. {24:36} And Sarah

my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old. And unto him

has he given all that he has. {24:37} And my master made me swear,

saying, you shall not take a wife for my son of the daughters of the

Canaanites, in whose land I dwell. {24:38} But you shall go unto my

father's house, and to my kindred, and take a wife for my son. {24:39}

And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not follow me.

{24:40} And he said unto me, Yehovah, before whom I walk, will send his

messenger with you, and prosper your way. And you shall take a wife for my

son of my kindred, and of my father's house. {24:41} Then shall you be

clear from my oath, when you come to my kindred. And if they give

her not to you, you shall be clear from my oath. {24:42} And I came

this day unto the fountain, and said, O Yehovah, the God of my master

Abraham, if now you do prosper my way which I go. {24:43} Behold, I am

standing by the fountain of water. And let it come to pass, that the

maiden that comes forth to draw, to whom I shall say, Give me, I pray

you, a little water from your pitcher to drink. {24:44} And she shall

say to me, Both drink you, and I will also draw for your camels. Let

the same be the woman whom Yehovah has appointed for my master's son.

{24:45} And before I had done speaking in my heart, behold, Rebekah

came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder. And she went down unto the

fountain, and drew. And I said unto her, Let me drink, I pray you.

{24:46} And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder,

and said, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also. So I drank, and

she made the camels drink also. {24:47} And I asked her, and said,

Whose daughter are you? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's

son, whom Milcah bare unto him. And I put the ring upon her nose, and

the bracelets upon her hands. {24:48} And I bowed my head, and

worshipped Yehovah, and blessed Yehovah, the God of my master Abraham,

who had led me in the right way to take my master's brother's daughter

for his son. {24:49} And now if you will deal kindly and truly with my

master, tell me. And if not, tell me. That I may turn to the right

hand, or to the left.

 

   {24:50} Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing

proceeds from Yehovah. We cannot speak unto you bad or good. {24:51}

Behold, Rebekah is before you, take her, and go, and let her be your

master's son's wife, as Yehovah has spoken. {24:52} And it came to

pass, that, when Abraham's servant heard their words, he bowed himself

down to the earth unto Yehovah. {24:53} And the servant brought forth

jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment, and gave them to

Rebekah. He gave also to her brother and to her mother precious things.

{24:54} And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him,

and tarried all night. And they rose up in the morning, and he said,

Send me away unto my master. {24:55} And her brother and her mother

said, Let the damsel abide with us [a few] days, at the least ten.

After that she shall go. {24:56} And he said unto them, Hinder me not,

seeing Yehovah has prospered my way. Send me away that I may go to my

master. {24:57} And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at

her mouth. {24:58} And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Will

you go with this man? And she said, I will go. {24:59} And they sent

away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham's servant, and

his men. {24:60} And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Our

sister, be you [the mother] of thousands of ten thousands, and let your

seed possess the gate of those that hate them.

 

   {24:61} And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the

camels, and followed the man. And the servant took Rebekah, and went

his way. {24:62} And Isaac came from the way of Beer-lahai-roi. For he

dwelt in the land of the South. {24:63} And Isaac went out to meditate

in the field at the eventide. And he lifted up his eyes, and saw, and,

behold, there were camels coming. {24:64} And Rebekah lifted up her

eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she alighted from the camel. {24:65} And

she said unto the servant, What man is this that walks in the field

to meet us? And the servant said, It is my master. And she took her

veil, and covered herself. {24:66} And the servant told Isaac all the

things that he had done. {24:67} And Isaac brought her into his mother

Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife. And he loved

her. And Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.

 

 

O1)25

   {25:1} And Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah.

{25:2} And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and

Ishbak, and Shuah. {25:3} And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the

sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim. {25:4} And the

sons of Midian: Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah.

All these were the children of Keturah. {25:5} And Abraham gave all

that he had unto Isaac. {25:6} But unto the sons of the concubines,

that Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts. And he sent them away from Isaac

his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country. {25:7}

And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, a

hundred threescore and fifteen years. {25:8} And Abraham gave up the

ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full [of years], and

was gathered to his people. {25:9} And Isaac and Ishmael his sons

buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of

Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre. {25:10} The field which

Abraham purchased of the children of Heth. There was Abraham buried,

and Sarah his wife. {25:11} And it came to pass after the death of

Abraham, that God blessed Isaac his son. And Isaac dwelt by

Beer-lahai-roi.

 

   {25:12} Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son,

whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham. {25:13}

And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names,

according to their generations: the first-born of Ishmael, Nebaioth,

and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, {25:14} and Mishma, and Dumah, and

Massa, {25:15} Hadad, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. {25:16}

These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their

villages, and by their encampments. Twelve princes according to their

nations. {25:17} And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a

hundred and thirty and seven years. And he gave up the ghost and died,

and was gathered unto his people. {25:18} And they dwelt from Havilah

unto Shur that is before Egypt, as you go toward Assyria. He abode

over against all his brethren.

 

   {25:19} And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son.

Abraham begat Isaac. {25:20} And Isaac was forty years old when he took

Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan-aram, the sister

of Laban the Syrian, to be his wife. {25:21} And Isaac entreated

Yehovah for his wife, because she was barren. And Yehovah was entreated

of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. {25:22} And the children

struggled together within her. And she said, If it be so, wherefore do

I live? And she went to inquire of Yehovah. {25:23} And Yehovah said

unto her,

Two nations are in your womb,

And two peoples shall be separated from your bowels.

And the one people shall be stronger than the other people.

And the elder shall serve the younger.

 

   {25:24} And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold,

there were twins in her womb. {25:25} And the first came forth red, all

over like a hairy garment. And they called his name Esau. {25:26} And

after that came forth his brother, and his hand had hold on Esau's

heel. And his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was threescore years old

when she bare them.

 

   {25:27} And the boys grew. And Esau was a skilful hunter, a man of

the field. And Jacob was a quiet man, dwelling in tents. {25:28} Now

Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison. And Rebekah loved

Jacob. {25:29} And Jacob boiled pottage. And Esau came in from the

field, and he was faint. {25:30} And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I

pray you, with that same red [pottage]. For I am faint. Therefore was

his name called Edom. {25:31} And Jacob said, Sell me first your

birthright. {25:32} And Esau said, Behold, I am about to die. And what

profit shall the birthright do to me? {25:33} And Jacob said, Swear to

me first. And he swore unto him. And he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

{25:34} And Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils. And he did

eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his

birthright.

 

 

O1)26

   {26:1} And there was a famine in the land, besides the first famine

that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of

the Philistines, unto Gerar. {26:2} And Yehovah appeared unto him, and

said, Go not down into Egypt. Dwell in the land which I shall tell you

of. {26:3} Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will

bless you. For unto you, and unto your seed, I will give all these

lands, and I will establish the oath which I swear unto Abraham your

father. {26:4} And I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and

will give unto your seed all these lands. And in your seed shall all the

nations of the earth be blessed. {26:5} Because that Abraham obeyed my

voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

{26:6} And Isaac dwelt in Gerar. {26:7} And the men of the place asked

him of his wife. And he said, She is my sister. For he feared to say,

My wife. Lest, [said he], the men of the place should kill me for

Rebekah. Because she was fair to look upon. {26:8} And it came to pass,

when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the

Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was

sporting with Rebekah his wife. {26:9} And Abimelech called Isaac, and

said, Behold, of a surety she is your wife. And how said you, She is

my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die because

of her. {26:10} And Abimelech said, What is this you have done unto

us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you

would have brought guiltiness upon us. {26:11} And Abimelech charged

all the people, saying, He that touches this man or his wife shall

surely be put to death.

 

   {26:12} And Isaac sowed in that land, and found in the same year a

hundredfold. And Yehovah blessed him. {26:13} And the man waxed great,

and grew more and more until he became very great. {26:14} And he had

possessions of flocks, and possessions of herds, and a great household.

And the Philistines envied him. {26:15} Now all the wells which his

father's servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, the

Philistines had stopped, and filled with earth. {26:16} And Abimelech

said unto Isaac, Go from us. For you are much mightier than we.

{26:17} And Isaac departed there, and encamped in the valley of Gerar,

and dwelt there.

 

   {26:18} And Isaac dug again the wells of water, which they had

dug in the days of Abraham his father. For the Philistines had

stopped them after the death of Abraham. And he called their names

after the names by which his father had called them. {26:19} And

Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and found there a well of

springing water. {26:20} And the herdsmen of Gerar strove with Isaac's

herdsmen, saying, The water is ours. And he called the name of the well

Esek, because they contended with him. {26:21} And they dug another

well, and they laid claim for that also. And he called the name of it

Sitnah. {26:22} And he removed from there, and dug another well.

And for that [well] they not strive for. And he called the name of it Rehoboth.

And he said, For now Yehovah has made room for us, and we shall be

fruitful in the land.

 

   {26:23} And he went up from there to Beer-sheba. {26:24} And

Yehovah appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of

Abraham your father. Fear not, for I am with you, and will bless you,

and multiply your seed for my servant Abraham's sake. {26:25} And he

built an altar there, and called upon the name of Yehovah, and

pitched his tent there. And there Isaac's servants dug a well.

 

   {26:26} Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath his

friend, and Phicol the captain of his host. {26:27} And Isaac said unto

them, Wherefore are you come unto me, seeing you hate me, and have sent

me away from you? {26:28} And they said, We saw plainly that Yehovah

was with you. And we said, Let there now be an oath betwixt us, even

betwixt us and you, and let us make a covenant with you, {26:29} that

you will do us no hurt, as we have not touched you, and as we have

done unto you nothing but good, and have sent you away in peace. you

are now the blessed of Yehovah. {26:30} And he made them a feast, and

they did eat and drink. {26:31} And they rose up early in the

morning, and swore one to another. And Isaac sent them away, and they

departed from him in peace. {26:32} And it came to pass the same day,

that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they

had dug, and said unto him, We have found water. {26:33} And he

called it Shibah. Therefore the name of the city is Beer-sheba unto

this day.

 

   {26:34} And when Esau was forty years old he took to wife Judith the

daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon the

Hittite. {26:35} And they were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to

Rebekah.

 

 

O1)27

   {27:1} And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes

were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his elder son, and

said unto him, My son. And he said unto him, Here am I. {27:2} And he

said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death. {27:3} Now

therefore take, I pray you, your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and

go out to the field, and take me venison. {27:4} And make me savory

food, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat. That my soul

may bless you before I die.

 

   {27:5} And Rebekah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son. And Esau

went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it. {27:6} And

Rebekah spoke unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard your father

speak unto Esau your brother, saying, {27:7} Bring me venison, and make

me savory food, that I may eat, and bless you before Yehovah before my

death. {27:8} Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that

which I command you. {27:9} Go now to the flock, and fetch me from

there two good kids of the goats. And I will make them savory food for

your father, such as he loves. {27:10} And you shall bring it to your

father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death.

{27:11} And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother

is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man. {27:12} My father peradventure

will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver. And I shall bring

a curse upon me, and not a blessing. {27:13} And his mother said unto

him, Upon me be your curse, my son. Only obey my voice, and go fetch me

them. {27:14} And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother.

And his mother made savory food, such as his father loved. {27:15} And

Rebekah took the goodly garments of Esau her elder son, which were with

her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son. {27:16} And

she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the

smooth of his neck. {27:17} And she gave the savory food and the bread,

which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

 

   {27:18} And he came unto his father, and said, My father. And he

said, Here am I. Who are you, my son? {27:19} And Jacob said unto his

father, I am Esau your first-born; I have done according as you say to me

me: arise, I pray you, sit and eat of my venison, that your soul may

bless me. {27:20} And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that you have

found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because Yehovah your God sent

me good speed. {27:21} And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray

you, that I may feel you, my son, whether you be my very son Esau or

not. {27:22} And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father. And he felt

him, and said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands

of Esau. {27:23} And he discerned him not, because his hands were

hairy, as his brother Esau's hands. So he blessed him. {27:24} And he

said, are you my very son Esau? And he said, I am. {27:25} And he

said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, that my

soul may bless you. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat. And

he brought him wine, and he drank. {27:26} And his father Isaac said

unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son. {27:27} And he came near,

and kissed him. And he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed

him, and said,

See, the smell of my son

Is as the smell of a field which Yehovah has blessed.

{27:28} And God give you of the dew of heaven,

And of the fatness of the earth,

And plenty of grain and new wine.

{27:29} Let peoples serve you,

And nations bow down to you.

Be lord over your brethren,

And let your mother's sons bow down to you.

A cursed be every one that curses you,

And blessed be every one that blesses you.

 

   {27:30} And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of

blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of

Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

{27:31} And he also made savory food, and brought it unto his father.

And he said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's

venison, that your soul may bless me. {27:32} And Isaac his father said

unto him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your first-born,

Esau. {27:33} And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who then

is he that has taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of

all before you came, and have blessed him? behold, [and] he shall be

blessed. {27:34} When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with

an exceeding great and bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me,

even me also, O my father. {27:35} And he said, your brother came with

guile, and has taken away your blessing. {27:36} And he said, is not he

rightly named Jacob? for he has supplanted me these two times. He took

away my birthright. And, behold, now he has taken away my blessing.

And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me? {27:37} And

Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him your lord,

and all his brethren have I given to him for servants. And with grain

and new wine have I sustained him. And what then shall I do for you,

my son? {27:38} And Esau said unto his father, Have you but one

blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau

lifted up his voice, and wept. {27:39} And Isaac his father answered

and said unto him,

Behold, of the fatness of the earth shall be your dwelling,

And of the dew of heaven from above.

{27:40} And by your sword shall you live, and you shall serve your

      brother.

And it shall come to pass, when you shall break loose,

That you shall shake his yoke from off your neck.

 

   {27:41} And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his

father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of grieveing

for my father are at hand. Then will I slay my brother Jacob. {27:42}

And the words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah. And she sent

and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, your

brother Esau, as touching you, does comfort himself, [purposing] to

kill you. {27:43} Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. And arise,

flee you to Laban my brother to Haran. {27:44} And tarry with him a

few days, until your brother's fury turn away. {27:45} Until your

brother's anger turn away from you, and he forget that which you have

done to him. Then I will send, and fetch you from there. Why should I

be bereaved of you both in one day?

 

   {27:46} And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of

the daughters of Heth. If Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth,

such as these, of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do

me?

 

O1)28

   {28:1} And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and

said unto him, you shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.

{28:2} Arise, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of Bethuel your mother's

father. And take you a wife from there of the daughters of Laban your

mother's brother. {28:3} And God Almighty bless you, and make you

fruitful, and multiply you, that you may be a company of peoples.

{28:4} And give you the blessing of Abraham, to you, and to your seed

with you. That you may inherit the land of your travels, which

God gave unto Abraham. {28:5} And Isaac sent away Jacob. And he went to

Paddan-aram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of

Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

 

   {28:6} Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away

to Paddan-aram, to take him a wife from there. And that as he blessed

him he gave him a charge, saying, you shall not take a wife of the

daughters of Canaan. {28:7} And that Jacob obeyed his father and his

mother, and was gone to Paddan-aram. {28:8} And Esau saw that the

daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his father. {28:9} And Esau went

unto Ishmael, and took, besides the wives that he had, Mahalath the

daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, the sister of Nebaioth, to be his

wife.

 

   {28:10} And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran.

{28:11} And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all

night, because the sun was set. And he took one of the stones of the

place, and put it under his head, and lay down in that place to sleep.

{28:12} And he dreamed. And behold, a ladder set up on the earth, and

the top of it reached to heaven. And behold, the messengers of God

ascending and descending on it. {28:13} And, behold, Yehovah stood

above it, and said, I am Yehovah, the God of Abraham your father, and

the God of Isaac. The land whereon you lie, to you will I give it,

and to your seed. {28:14} And your seed shall be as the dust of the

earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and

to the north, and to the south. And in you and in your seed shall all

the families of the earth be blessed. {28:15} And, behold, I am with

you, and will keep you, where so  ever you go, and will bring you

again into this land. For I will not leave you, until I have done that

which I have spoken to you of. {28:16} And Jacob awaked out of his

sleep, and he said, Surely Yehovah is in this place. And I knew it not.

{28:17} And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! This

is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.

 

   {28:18} And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone

that he had put under his head, and set it up for a pillar, and poured

oil upon the top of it. {28:19} And he called the name of that place

Beth-el. But the name of the city was Luz at the first. {28:20} And

Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in

this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put

on, {28:21} so that I come again to my father's house in peace, and

Yehovah will be my God, {28:22} then this stone, which I have set up

for a pillar, shall be God's house. And of all that you shall give me

I will surely give the tenth unto you.

 

 

o1)29

   {29:1} Then Jacob went on his journey, and came to the land of the

children of the east. {29:2} And he looked, and behold, a well in the

field, and, lo, three flocks of sheep lying there by it. For out of

that well they watered the flocks. And the stone upon the well's mouth

was great. {29:3} And there were all the flocks gathered. And they

rolled the stone from the well's mouth, and watered the sheep, and put

the stone again upon the well's mouth in its place. {29:4} And Jacob

said unto them, My brethren, where are you? And they said, Of Haran are

we. {29:5} And he said unto them, Know you Laban the son of Nahor? And

they said, We know him. {29:6} And he said unto them, Is it well with

him? And they said, It is well. And, behold, Rachel his daughter comes

with the sheep. {29:7} And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is

it time that the cattle should be gathered together. Water you the

sheep, and go and feed them. {29:8} And they said, We cannot, until all

the flocks be gathered together, and they roll the stone from the

well's mouth. Then we water the sheep. {29:9} While he was yet speaking

with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep. For she kept them.

{29:10} And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of

Laban his mother's brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother's

brother, that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well's

mouth, and watered the flock of Laban his mother's brother. {29:11} And

Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept. {29:12} And

Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother, and that he was

Rebekah's son. And she ran and told her father.

 

   {29:13} And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob

his sister's son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed

him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these things.

{29:14} And Laban said to him, Surely you are my bone and my flesh.

And he abode with him the space of a moon cycle. {29:15} And Laban said unto

Jacob, Because you are my brother, should you therefore serve me

for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be? {29:16} And Laban had two

daughters. The name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger

was Rachel. {29:17} And Leah's eyes were tender. But Rachel was

beautiful and well favored. {29:18} And Jacob loved Rachel. And he

said, I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.

{29:19} And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you, than that

I should give her to another man. Abide with me. {29:20} And Jacob

served seven years for Rachel. And they seemed unto him but a few days,

for the love he had to her.

 

   {29:21} And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are

fulfilled, that I may go in unto her. {29:22} And Laban gathered

together all the men of the place, and made a feast. {29:23} And it

came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter, and

brought her to him. And he went in unto her. {29:24} And Laban gave

Zilpah his handmaid unto his daughter Leah for a handmaid. {29:25} And

it came to pass in the morning that, behold, it was Leah. And he said

to Laban, What is this you have done unto me? Did not I serve with

you for Rachel? Wherefore then have you beguiled me? {29:26} And

Laban said, It is not so done in our place, to give the younger before

the first-born. {29:27} Fulfill the seven solar days of this one, and we will give

you the other also for the service which you shall serve with me yet

seven other years. {29:28} And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her Shebuah.

And he gave him Rachel his daughter to wife. {29:29} And Laban gave to

Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be her handmaid. {29:30} And

he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more than Leah,

and served with him yet seven other years.

 

   {29:31} And Yehovah saw that Leah was hated, and he opened her womb.

But Rachel was barren. {29:32} And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and

she called his name Reuben. For she said, Because Yehovah has looked

upon my affliction. For now my husband will love me. {29:33} And she

conceived again, and bare a son: and said, Because Yehovah has heard

that I am hated, he has therefore given me this [son] also. And she

called his name Simeon. {29:34} And she conceived again, and bare a

son. And said, Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, because

I have borne him three sons. Therefore was his name called Levi.

{29:35} And she conceived again, and bare a son. And she said, This

time will I praise Yehovah. Therefore she called his name Judah. And

she left off bearing.

 

 

O1)30

   {30:1} And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel

envied her sister; and she said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I

die. {30:2} And Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said,

Am I in God's stead, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?

{30:3} And she said, Behold, my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; that she

may bear upon my knees, and I also may obtain children by her. {30:4}

And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in unto

her. {30:5} And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son. {30:6} And

Rachel said, God has judged me, and has also heard my voice, and has

given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan. {30:7} And Bilhah

Rachel's handmaid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second son. {30:8}

And Rachel said, With mighty struggle have I withheld with my sister,

and have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali.

 

   {30:9} When Leah saw that she had left off bearing, she took Zilpah

her handmaid, and gave her to Jacob to wife. {30:10} And Zilpah Leah's

handmaid bare Jacob a son. {30:11} And Leah said, Fortunate! and she

called his name Gad. {30:12} And Zilpah Leah's handmaid bare Jacob a

second son. {30:13} And Leah said, Happy am I! for the daughters will

call me happy: and she called his name Asher.

 

   {30:14} And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found

mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah. Then

Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray you, of your son's mandrakes.

{30:15} And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that you have

taken away my husband? and would you take away my son's mandrakes

also? And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with you to-night for

your son's mandrakes. {30:16} And Jacob came from the field in the

evening, and Leah went out to meet him, and said, you must come in

unto me; for I have surely hired you with my son's mandrakes. And he

lay with her that night. {30:17} And God heard unto Leah, and she

conceived, and bare Jacob a fifth son. {30:18} And Leah said, God has

given me my hire, because I gave my handmaid to my husband: and she

called his name Issachar. {30:19} And Leah conceived again, and bare a

sixth son to Jacob. {30:20} And Leah said, God has endowed me with a

good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me, because I have borne him

six sons: and she called his name Zebulun. {30:21} And afterwards she

bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah. {30:22} And God remembered

Rachel, and God heard her, and opened her womb. {30:23} And she

conceived, and bare a son: and said, God has taken away my reproach:

{30:24} and she called his name Joseph, saying, Yehovah add to me

another son.

 

   {30:25} And it came to pass, when Rachel had borne Joseph, that

Jacob said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own place,

and to my country. {30:26} Give me my wives and my children for whom I

have served you, and let me go: for you know my service wherewith

I have served you. {30:27} And Laban said unto him, If now I have

found favor in your eyes, [tarry]: [for] I have divined that Yehovah

has blessed me for your sake. {30:28} And he said, Appoint me your

wages, and I will give it. {30:29} And he said unto him, you know

how I have served you, and how your cattle have fared with me. {30:30}

For it was little which you had before I came, and it has increased

unto a multitude; and Yehovah has blessed you where so ever I turned:

and now when shall I provide for mine own house also? {30:31} And he

said, What shall I give you? And Jacob said, you shall not give me

anything: if you will do this thing for me, I will again feed your flock

and keep it. {30:32} I will pass through all your flock to-day, removing

from there every speckled and spotted one, and every black one among

the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and [of such]

shall be my hire. {30:33} So shall my working good works answer for me

hereafter, when you shall come concerning my hire that is before you:

every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats, and black

among the sheep, that [if found] with me, shall be counted stolen.

{30:34} And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to your

word. {30:35} And he removed that day the he-goats that were

ring streaked and spotted, and all the she-goats that were speckled and

spotted, every one that had white in it, and all the black ones among

the sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons; {30:36} and he set

three days' journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob fed the rest

of Laban's flocks.

 

   {30:37} And Jacob took him rods of fresh poplar, and of the almond

and of the plane-tree. And peeled white streaks in them, and made the

white appear which was in the rods. {30:38} And he set the rods which

he had peeled over against the flocks in the gutters in the

watering-troughs where the flocks came to drink; and they conceived

when they came to drink. {30:39} And the flocks conceived before the

rods, and the flocks brought forth ring streaked, speckled, and spotted.

{30:40} And Jacob separated the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks

toward the ring streaked and all the black in the flock of Laban: and he

put his own droves apart, and put them not unto Laban's flock. {30:41}

And it came to pass, when ever the stronger of the flock did conceive,

that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the flock in the gutters,

that they might conceive among the rods; {30:42} but when the flock

were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the

stronger Jacob's. {30:43} And the man increased exceedingly, and had

large flocks, and maid-servants and men-servants, and camels and asses.

 

 

O1)31

   {31:1} And he heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, Jacob has

taken away all that was our father's; and of that which was our

father's has he gotten all this glory. {31:2} And Jacob beheld the

countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was not toward him as beforetime.

{31:3} And Yehovah said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of your

fathers, and to your kindred; and I will be with you. {31:4} And Jacob

sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his flock, {31:5} and

said unto them, I see your father's countenance, that it is not toward

me as beforetime; but the God of my father has been with me. {31:6}

And you know that with all my power I have served your father. {31:7}

And your father has deceived me, and changed my wages ten times; but

God suffered him not to hurt me. {31:8} If he said thus, The speckled

shall be your wages; then all the flock bare speckled: and if he said

thus, The ring streaked shall be your wages; then bare all the flock

ring streaked. {31:9} Thus God has taken away the cattle of your

father, and given them to me. {31:10} And it came to pass at the time

that the flock conceive, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a

dream, and, behold, the he-goats which leaped upon the flock were

ring streaked, speckled, and grizzled. {31:11} And the messenger of God said

unto me in the dream, Jacob: and I said, Here am I. {31:12} And he

said, Lift up now your eyes, and see, all the he-goats which leap upon

the flock are ring streaked, speckled, and grizzled: for I have seen all

that Laban does unto you. {31:13} I am the God of Beth-el, where you

anointed a pillar, where you vowed a vow unto me: now arise, get

you out from this land, and return unto the land of your nativity.

{31:14} And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet

any portion or inheritance for us in our father's house? {31:15} Are we

not accounted by him as foreigners? for he has sold us, and has also

quite devoured our money. {31:16} For all the riches which God has

taken away from our father, that is ours and our children's: now then,

what so ever God has said unto you, do.

 

   {31:17} Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon the

camels; {31:18} and he carried away all his cattle, and all his

substance which he had gathered, the cattle of his getting, which he

had gathered in Paddan-aram, to go to Isaac his father unto the land of

Canaan. {31:19} Now Laban was gone to shear his sheep: and Rachel stole

the idol images that were her father's. {31:20} And Jacob stole away

unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled.

{31:21} So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed

over the River, and set his face toward the mountain of Gilead.

 

   {31:22} And it was told Laban on the third day that Jacob was fled.

{31:23} And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven

days' journey; and he overtook him in the mountain of Gilead. {31:24}

And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream of the night, and said unto

him, Take heed to yourself that you speak not to Jacob either good or

bad. {31:25} And Laban came up with Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his

tent in the mountain: and Laban with his brethren encamped in the

mountain of Gilead. {31:26} And Laban said to Jacob, What have you

done, that you have stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my

daughters as captives of the sword? {31:27} Wherefore did you flee

secretly, and steal away from me, and did not tell me, that I might

have sent you away with mirth and with songs, with tabret and with

harp; {31:28} and did not suffer me to kiss my sons and my daughters?

now have you done foolishly. {31:29} It is in the power of my hand to

do you hurt: but the God of your father spoke unto me yesterday night,

saying, Take heed to yourself that you speak not to Jacob either good

or bad. {31:30} And now, [though] you would need be gone, because

you sore longed for your father's house, [yet] why have you

stolen my gods? {31:31} And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I

was afraid: for I said, Lest you should take your daughters from me

by force. {31:32} With whom so ever you find your gods, he shall not

live: before our brethren discern you what is yours with me, and take

it with you. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.

 

   {31:33} And Laban went into Jacob's tent, and into Leah's tent, and

into the tent of the two maid-servants; but he found them not. And he

went out of Leah's tent, and entered into Rachel's tent. {31:34} Now

Rachel had taken the idols, and put them in the camel's saddle, and

sat upon them. And Laban felt about all the tent, but found them not.

{31:35} And she said to her father, Let not my lord be angry that I

cannot rise up before you; for the manner of women is upon me. And he

searched, but found not the idols.

 

   {31:36} And Jacob was wroth, and argued with Laban: and Jacob

answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that

you have hotly pursued after me? {31:37} Whereas you have felt about

all my stuff, what have you found of all your household stuff? Set it

here before my brethren and your brethren, that they may judge betwixt

us two. {31:38} These twenty years have I been with you; your ewes and

your she-goats have not cast their young, and the rams of your flocks

have I not eaten. {31:39} That which was torn of beasts I brought not

unto you; I bare the loss of it; of my hand did you require it,

whether stolen by day or stolen by night. {31:40} Thus I was; in the

day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep fled

from mine eyes. {31:41} These twenty years have I been in your house; I

served you fourteen years for your two daughters, and six years for your

flock: and you have changed my wages ten times. {31:42} Except the God

of my father, the God of Abraham, and the Fear of Isaac, had been with

me, surely now you would have sent me away empty. God has seen mine

affliction and the labor of my hands, and rebuked you last night.

 

   {31:43} And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, The daughters are my

daughters, and the children are my children, and the flocks are my

flocks, and all that you sees is mine: and what can I do this day

unto these my daughters, or unto their children whom they have borne?

{31:44} And now come, let us make a covenant, I and you; and let it be

for a witness between me and you. {31:45} And Jacob took a stone, and

set it up for a pillar. {31:46} And Jacob said unto his brethren,

Gather stones; and they took stones, and made a heap: and they did eat

there by the heap. {31:47} And Laban called it Jegar-saha-dutha: but

Jacob called it Galeed. {31:48} And Laban said, This heap is witness

between me and you this day. Therefore was the name of it called

Galeed: {31:49} and Mizpah, for he said, Yehovah watch between me and

you, when we are absent one from another. {31:50} If you shall

afflict my daughters, and if you shall take wives besides my

daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness betwixt me and you.

{31:51} And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold the

pillar, which I have set betwixt me and you. {31:52} This heap be

witness, and the pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap

to you, and that you shall not pass over this heap and this pillar

unto me, for harm. {31:53} The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor,

the God of their father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob swore by the Fear

of his father Isaac. {31:54} And Jacob offered a sacrifice in the

mountain, and called his brethren to eat bread: and they did eat bread,

and tarried all night in the mountain. {31:55} And early in the morning

Laban rose up, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them:

and Laban departed and returned unto his place.

 

 

O1)32

   {32:1} And Jacob went on his way, and the messengers of God met him.

{32:2} And Jacob said when he saw them, This is God's host: and he

called the name of that place Mahanaim.

 

   {32:3} And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto

the land of Seir, the field of Edom. {32:4} And he commanded them,

saying, Thus shall you say unto my lord Esau: Thus said your servant

Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed until now: {32:5} and I

have oxen, and asses, [and] flocks, and men-servants, and

maid-servants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find favor

in your sight. {32:6} And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We

came to your brother Esau, and he comes to meet you, and four

hundred men with him. {32:7} Then Jacob was greatly afraid and was

distressed: and he divided the people that were with him, and the

flocks, and the herds, and the camels, into two companies; {32:8} and

he said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the

company which is left shall escape. {32:9} And Jacob said, O God of my

father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, O Yehovah, who said unto

me, Return unto your country, and to your kindred, and I will do you

good: {32:10} I am not worthy of the least of all the loving kindnesses,

and of all the truth, which you have showed unto your servant; for with

my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two companies.

{32:11} Deliver me, I pray you, from the hand of my brother, from the

hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he come and smite me, the mother

with the children. {32:12} And you said, I will surely do you good,

and make your seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for

multitude.

 

   {32:13} And he lodged there that night, and took of that which he

had with him a present for Esau his brother: {32:14} two hundred

she-goats and twenty he-goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams,

{32:15} thirty milk camels and their colts, forty cows and ten bulls,

twenty she-asses and ten foals. {32:16} And he delivered them into the

hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said unto his

servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove.

{32:17} And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother

meets you, and asks you, saying, Whose are you? and where ever

you go? and whose are these before you? {32:18} then you shall

say [They are] your servant Jacob's; it is a present sent unto my lord

Esau: and, behold, he also is behind us. {32:19} And he commanded also

the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On

this manner shall you speak unto Esau, when you find him; {32:20} and you

shall say, behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he

said, I will appease him with the present that goes before me, and

afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept me. {32:21}

So the present passed over before him: and he himself lodged that night

in the company.

 

   {32:22} And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his

two handmaids, and his eleven children, and passed over the ford of the

Jabbok. {32:23} And he took them, and sent them over the stream, and

sent over that which he had. {32:24} And Jacob was left alone; and

there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. {32:25}

And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the

hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was strained, as

he wrestled with him. {32:26} And he said, Let me go, for the day

breaks. And he said, I will not let you go, except you bless me.

{32:27} And he said unto him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.

{32:28} And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but

Israel: for you have striven with God and with men, and have

prevailed. {32:29} And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray you,

your name. And he said, Wherefore is it that you do ask after my

name? And he blessed him there. {32:30} And Jacob called the name of

the place Peniel: for, [said he], I have seen God face to face, and my

life is preserved. {32:31} And the sun rose upon him as he passed over

Penuel, and he limped upon his thigh. {32:32} Therefore the children of

Israel eat not the sinew of the hip which is upon the hollow of the

thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob's thigh in

the sinew of the hip.

 

O1)33

   {33:1} And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau

was coming, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children

unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids. {33:2} And he

put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her

children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost. {33:3} And he himself

passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times,

until he came near to his brother. {33:4} And Esau ran to meet him, and

embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.

{33:5} And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children;

and said, Who are these with you? And he said, The children whom God

has graciously given your servant. {33:6} Then the handmaids came near,

they and their children, and they bowed themselves. {33:7} And Leah

also and her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after came

Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed themselves. {33:8} And he said,

What meanest you by all this company which I met? And he said, To find

favor in the sight of my lord. {33:9} And Esau said, I have enough, my

brother; let that which you have be yours. {33:10} And Jacob said,

Nay, I pray you, if now I have found favor in your sight, then receive

my present at my hand; forasmuch as I have seen your face, as one sees

the face of God, and you was pleased with me. {33:11} Take, I pray

you, my gift that is brought to you; because God has dealt

graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he urged him, and he

took it. {33:12} And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go,

and I will go before you. {33:13} And he said unto him, My lord

knows that the children are tender, and that the flocks and herds

with me have their young: and if they overdrive them one day, all the

flocks will die. {33:14} Let my lord, I pray you, pass over before his

servant: and I will lead on gently, according to the pace of the cattle

that are before me and according to the pace of the children, until I

come unto my lord unto Seir. {33:15} And Esau said, Let me now leave

with you some of the folk that are with me. And he said, What needs

it? let me find favor in the sight of my lord. {33:16} So Esau returned

that day on his way unto Seir. {33:17} And Jacob journeyed to Succoth,

and built him a house, and made booths for his cattle: therefore the

name of the place is called Succoth.

 

   {33:18} And Jacob came in peace to the city of Shechem, which is in

the land of Canaan, when he came from Paddan-aram; and encamped before

the city. {33:19} And he bought the parcel of ground, where he had

spread his tent, at the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem's

father, for a hundred pieces of money. {33:20} And he erected there an

altar, and called it El-Elohe-Israel.

 

 

 

   {34:1} And Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she bare unto Jacob,

went out to see the daughters of the land. {34:2} And Shechem the son

of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her; And he took her,

and lay with her, and humbled her. {34:3} And his soul clave unto Dinah

the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spoke kindly unto

the damsel. {34:4} And Shechem spoke unto his father Hamor, saying, Get

me this damsel to wife. {34:5} Now Jacob heard that he had defiled

Dinah his daughter; and his sons were with his cattle in the field: and

Jacob held his peace until they came. {34:6} And Hamor the father of

Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him. {34:7} And the sons of

Jacob came in from the field when they heard it: and the men were

grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in

Israel in lying with Jacob's daughter; which thing ought not to be

done. {34:8} And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son

Shechem longs for your daughter: I pray you, give her unto him to

wife. {34:9} And make you marriages with us; give your daughters unto

us, and take our daughters unto you. {34:10} And you shall dwell with

us: and the land shall be before you; dwell and trade you therein, and

get you possessions therein. {34:11} And Shechem said unto her father

and unto her brethren, Let me find favor in your eyes, and what you

shall say unto me I will give. {34:12} Ask me never so much dowry and

gift, and I will give according as you shall say unto me: but give me

the damsel to wife. {34:13} And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and

Hamor his father with guile, and spoke, because he had defiled Dinah

their sister, {34:14} and said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to

give our sister to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach

unto us. {34:15} Only on this condition will we consent unto you: if you

will be as we are, that every male of you be circumcised; {34:16} then

will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your daughters to

us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people. {34:17}

But if you will not hear unto us, to be circumcised; then will we

take our daughter, and we will be gone.

 

O1)34

   {34:18} And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem Hamor's son.

{34:19} And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had

delight in Jacob's daughter: and he was honored above all the house of

his father. {34:20} And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of

their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying, {34:21}

These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the land,

and trade therein; for, behold, the land is large enough for them; let

us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our

daughters. {34:22} Only on this condition will the men consent unto us

to dwell with us, to become one people, if every male among us be

circumcised, as they are circumcised. {34:23} shall not their cattle

and their substance and all their beasts be ours? only let us consent

unto them, and they will dwell with us. {34:24} And unto Hamor and unto

Shechem his son heard all that went out of the gate of his city;

and every male was circumcised, all that went out of the gate of his

city. {34:25} And it came to pass on the third day, when they were

sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren,

took each man his sword, and came upon the city unawares, and slew all

the males. {34:26} And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the

edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went

forth. {34:27} The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the

city, because they had defiled their sister. {34:28} They took their

flocks and their herds and their asses, and that which was in the city,

and that which was in the field; {34:29} and all their wealth, and all

their little ones and their wives, took they captive and made a prey,

even all that was in the house. {34:30} And Jacob said to Simeon and

Levi, you have troubled me, to make me odious to the inhabitants of the

land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and, I being few in

number, they will gather themselves together against me and smite me;

and I shall be destroyed, I and my house. {34:31} And they said, Should

he deal with our sister as with a whore?

 

 

O1)35

   {35:1} And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell

there: and make there an altar unto God, who appeared unto you when

you fled from the face of Esau your brother. {35:2} Then Jacob said

unto his household, and to all that were with him, Put away the foreign

gods that are among you, and purify yourselves, and change your

garments: {35:3} and let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will

make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my

distress, and was with me in the way which I went. {35:4} And they gave

unto Jacob all the foreign gods which were in their hand, and the rings

which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by

Shechem. {35:5} And they journeyed: and a terror of God was upon the

cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the

sons of Jacob. {35:6} So Jacob came to Luz, which is in the land of

Canaan (the same is Beth-el), he and all the people that were with him.

{35:7} And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el;

because there God was revealed unto him, when he fled from the face of

his brother. {35:8} And Deborah Rebekah's nurse died, and she was

buried below Beth-el under the oak: and the name of it was called

Allon-bacuth.

 

   {35:9} And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came from

Paddan-aram, and blessed him. {35:10} And God said unto him, Your name

is Jacob: your name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall

be your name: and he called his name Israel. {35:11} And God said unto

him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a

company of nations shall be of you, and kings shall come out of your

loins; {35:12} and the land which I gave unto Abraham and Isaac, to

you I will give it, and to your seed after you will I give the land.

{35:13} And God went up from him in the place where he spoke with him.

{35:14} And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he spoke with him,

a pillar of stone: and he poured out a drink-offering thereon, and

poured oil thereon. {35:15} And Jacob called the name of the place

where God spoke with him, Beth-el.

 

   {35:16} And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was still some

distance to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard

labor. {35:17} And it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that

the midwife said unto her, Fear not; for now you shall have another

son. {35:18} And it came to pass, as her soul was departed (for she

died), that she called his name Ben-oni: but his father called him

Benjamin. {35:19} And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath

(the same is Beth-lehem). {35:20} And Jacob set up a pillar upon her

grave: the same is the Pillar of Rachel's grave unto this day. {35:21}

And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Eder.

{35:22} And it came to pass, while Israel dwelt in that land, that

Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father's concubine: and Israel

heard of it.

 

   Now the sons of Jacob were twelve: {35:23} The sons of Leah: Reuben,

Jacob's first-born, and Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and

Zebulun; {35:24} the sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin; {35:25} and

the sons of Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid: Dan and Naphtali; {35:26} and

the sons of Zilpah, Leah's handmaid: Gad and Asher: these are the sons

of Jacob, that were born to him in Paddan-aram. {35:27} And Jacob came

unto Isaac his father to Mamre, to Kiriath-arba (the same is Hebron),

where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.

 

   {35:28} And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years.

{35:29} And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto

his people, old and full of days: and Esau and Jacob his sons buried

him.

 

 

O1)36

   {36:1} Now these are the generations of Esau (the same is Edom).

{36:2} Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan: Adah the

daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, the

daughter of Zibeon the Hivite, {36:3} and Basemath Ishmael's daughter,

sister of Nebaioth. {36:4} And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz; and Basemath

bare Reuel; {36:5} and  bare Jeush, and Jalam, and Korah:

these are the sons of Esau, that were born unto him in the land of

Canaan. {36:6} And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his

daughters, and all the souls of his house, and his cattle, and all his

beasts, and all his possessions, which he had gather in the land of

Canaan; and went into a land away from his brother Jacob. {36:7} For

their substance was too great for them to dwell together; and the land

of their moving about could not bear them because of their cattle.

{36:8} And Esau dwelt in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.

 

   {36:9} And these are the generations of Esau the father of the

Edomites in mount Seir: {36:10} these are the names of Esau's sons:

Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reuel the son of Basemath the

wife of Esau. {36:11} And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho,

and Gatam, and Kenaz. {36:12} And Timna was concubine to Eliphaz Esau's

son; and she bare to Eliphaz Amalek: these are the sons of Adah, Esau's

wife. {36:13} And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahas, and Zerah,

Shammah, and Mizzah: these were the sons of Basemath, Esau's wife.

{36:14} And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the

daughter of Zibeon, Esau's wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and Jalam,

and Korah.

 

   {36:15} These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau: the sons of

Eliphaz the first-born of Esau: chief Teman, chief Omar, chief Zepho,

chief Kenaz, {36:16} chief Korah, chief Gatam, chief Amalek: these are

the chiefs that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom; these are the sons

of Adah. {36:17} And these are the sons of Reuel, Esau's son: chief

Nahas, chief Zerah, chief Shammah, chief Mizzah: these are the chiefs

that came of Reuel in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Basemath,

Esau's wife. {36:18} And these are the sons of Aholibamah, Esau's wife:

chief Jeush, chief Jalam, chief Korah: these are the chiefs that came

of Aholibamah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife. {36:19} These are the

sons of Esau, and these are their chiefs: the same is Edom.

 

   {36:20} These are the sons of Seir the Horite, the inhabitants of

the land: Lotan and Shobal and Zibeon and Anah, {36:21} and Dishon and

Ezer and Dishan: these are the chiefs that came of the Horites, the

children of Seir in the land of Edom. {36:22} And the children of Lotan

were Hori and Heman. And Lotan's sister was Timna. {36:23} And these

are the children of Shobal: Alvan and Manahas and Ebal, Shepho and

Onam. {36:24} And these are the children of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah; this

is Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness, as he fed the

asses of Zibeon his father. {36:25} And these are the children of Anah:

Dishon and Oholibamah the daughter of Anah. {36:26} And these are the

children of Dishon: Hemdan and Eshban and Ithran and Cheran. {36:27}

These are the children of Ezer: Bilhan and Zaavan and Akan. {36:28}

These are the children of Dishan: Uz and Aran. {36:29} These are the

chiefs that came of the Horites: chief Lotan, chief Shobal, chief

Zibeon, chief Anah, {36:30} chief Dishon, chief Ezer, chief Dishan:

these are the chiefs that came of the Horites, according to their

chiefs in the land of Seir.

 

   {36:31} And these are the kings that reigned in the land of Edom,

before there reigned any king over the children of Israel. {36:32} And

Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom; and the name of his city was

Dinhabah. {36:33} And Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah

reigned in his stead. {36:34} And Jobab died, and Husham of the land of

the Temanites reigned in his stead. {36:35} And Husham died, and Hadad

the son of Bedad, who smote Midian in the field of Moab, reigned in his

stead: and the name of his city was Avith. {36:36} And Hadad died, and

Samlah of Masrekah reigned in his stead. {36:37} And Samlah died, and

Shaul of Rehoboth by the River reigned in his stead. {36:38} And Shaul

died, and Baal-hanan the son of Achbor reigned in his stead. {36:39}

And Baal-hanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his stead:

and the name of his city was Pau; and his wife's name was Mehetabel,

the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-zahab.

 

   {36:40} And these are the names of the chiefs that came of Esau,

according to their families, after their places, by their names: chief

Timna, chief Alvah, chief Jetheth, {36:41} chief Oholibamah, chief

Elah, chief Pinon, {36:42} chief Kenaz, chief Teman, chief Mibzar,

{36:43} chief Magdiel, chief Iram: these are the chiefs of Edom,

according to their habitations in the land of their possession. This is

Esau, the father of the Edomites.

 

 

O1)37

   {37:1} And Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's roaming about, in

the land of Canaan. {37:2} These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph,

being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and

he was a lad with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his

father's wives: and Joseph brought the evil report of them unto their

father. {37:3} Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children,

because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many

colors. {37:4} And his brethren saw that their father loved him more

than all his brethren; and they hated him, and could not speak

peaceably unto him.

 

   {37:5} And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it to his brethren:

and they hated him yet the more. {37:6} And he said unto them, Hear, I

pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: {37:7} for, behold, we were

binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood

upright; and, behold, your sheaves came round about, and made obeisance

to my sheaf. {37:8} And his brethren said to him, shall you indeed

reign over us? Or shall you indeed have dominion over us? And they

hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. {37:9} And he

dreamed yet another dream, and told it to his brethren, and said,

Behold, I have dreamed yet a dream: and, behold, the sun and the moon

and eleven stars made obeisance to me. {37:10} And he told it to his

father, and to his brethren; and his father rebuked him, and said unto

him, What is this dream that you have dreamed? shall I and your mother

and your brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to you to the

earth? {37:11} And his brethren envied him; but his father kept the

saying in mind.

 

   {37:12} And his brethren went to feed their father's flock in

Shechem. {37:13} And Israel said unto Joseph, Are not your brethren

feeding the flock in Shechem? Come, and I will send you unto them. And

he said to him, Here am I. {37:14} And he said to him, Go now, see

whether it is well with your brethren, and well with the flock; and

bring me word again. So he sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he

came to Shechem. {37:15} And a certain man found him, and, behold, he

was wandering in the field: and the man asked him, saying, What do you seek? {37:16} And he said, I am seeking my brethren: tell me, I pray

you, where they are feeding [the flock]. {37:17} And the man said,

They are departed from here; for I heard them say, Let us go to Dothan. And

Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothan.

 

   {37:18} And they saw him afar off, and before he came near unto

them, they conspired against him to slay him. {37:19} And they said one

to another, Behold, this dreamer comes. {37:20} Come now therefore,

and let us slay him, and cast him into one of the pits, and we will

say, And evil beast has devoured him: and we shall see what will

become of his dreams. {37:21} And Reuben heard it, and delivered him

out of their hand, and said, Let us not take his life. {37:22} And

Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood; cast him into this pit that is in

the wilderness, but lay no hand upon him: that he might deliver him out

of their hand, to restore him to his father. {37:23} And it came to

pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stripped Joseph

of his coat, the coat of many colors that was on him; {37:24} and they

took him, and cast him into the pit: and the pit was empty, there was

no water in it.

 

   {37:25} And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their

eyes and looked, and, behold, a caravan of Ishmaelites was coming from

Gilead, with their camels bearing spices and balm and myrrh, going to

carry it down to Egypt. {37:26} And Judah said unto his brethren, What

profit is it if we slay our brother and conceal his blood? {37:27}

Come, and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be

upon him; for he is our brother, our flesh. And his brethren heard

unto him. {37:28} And there passed by Midianites, merchantmen; and they

drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the

Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver. And they brought Joseph into

Egypt.

 

   {37:29} And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was

not in the pit; and he rent his clothes. {37:30} And he returned unto

his brethren, and said, The child is not; and I, where shall I go?

{37:31} And they took Joseph's coat, and killed a he-goat, and dipped

the coat in the blood; {37:32} and they sent the coat of many colors,

and they brought it to their father, and said, This have we found: know

now whether it is your son's coat or not. {37:33} And he knew it, and

said, It is my son's coat: an evil beast has devoured him; Joseph is

outside doubt torn in pieces. {37:34} And Jacob rent his garments, and

put sackcloth upon his loins, and grieveed for his son many days.

{37:35} And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him;

but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down to

Sheol to my son grieveing. And his father wept for him. {37:36} And the

Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh's,

the captain of the guard.

 

 

O1)38

   {38:1} And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from

his brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was

Hirah. {38:2} And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite

whose name was Shua. And he took her, and went in unto her. {38:3} And

she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er. {38:4} And

she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name Onan.

{38:5} And she yet again bare a son, and called his name Shelah: and he

was at Chezib, when she bare him. {38:6} And Judah took a wife for Er

his first-born, and her name was Tamar. {38:7} And Er, Judah's

first-born, was wicked in the sight of Yehovah. And Yehovah slew him.

{38:8} And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto your brother's wife, and

perform the duty of a husband's brother unto her, and raise up seed to

your brother. {38:9} And Onan knew that the seed would not be his; and

it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he

spilled it on the ground, lest he should give seed to his brother.

{38:10} And the thing which he did was evil in the sight of Yehovah:

and he slew him also. {38:11} Then said Judah to Tamar his

daughter-in-law, Remain a widow in your father's house, till Shelah my

son be grown up; for he said, Lest he also die, like his brethren. And

Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.

 

   {38:12} And in process of time Shua's daughter, the wife of Judah,

died; and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheep-shearers to

Timnah, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite. {38:13} And it was told

Tamar, saying, Behold, your father-in-law goes up to Timnah to shear

his sheep. {38:14} And she put off from her the garments of her

widowhood, and covered herself with her veil, and wrapped herself, and

sat in the gate of Enaim, which is by the way to Timnah; for she saw

that Shelah was grown up, and she was not given unto him to wife.

{38:15} When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a whore; for she had

covered her face. {38:16} And he turned unto her by the way, and said,

Come, I pray you, let me come in unto you: for he knew not that she

was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What will you give me, that

you may come in unto me? {38:17} And he said, I will send you a

kid of the goats from the flock. And she said, Will you give me a

pledge, till you send it? {38:18} And he said, What pledge shall I

give you? And she said, Your signet and your cord, and your staff that is

in your hand. And he gave them to her, and came in unto her, and she

conceived by him. {38:19} And she arose, and went away, and put off her

veil from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood. {38:20} And

Judah sent the kid of the goats by the hand of his friend the

Adullamite, to receive the pledge from the woman's hand: but he found

her not. {38:21} Then he asked the men of her place, saying, Where is

the prostitute, that was at Enaim by the wayside? And they said, There

has been no prostitute here. {38:22} And he returned to Judah, and

said, I have not found her; and also the men of the place said, There

has been no prostitute here. {38:23} And Judah said, Let her take it

to her, lest we be put to shame: behold, I sent this kid, and you have

not found her.

 

   {38:24} And it came to pass about three moon cycles after, that it was

told Judah, saying, Tamar your daughter-in-law has played the whore;

and behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said,

Bring her forth, and let her be burnt. {38:25} When she was brought

forth, she sent to her father-in-law, saying, By the man, whose these

are, am I with child: and she said, Discern, I pray you, whose are

these, the signet, and the cords, and the staff. {38:26} And Judah

acknowledged them, and said, She is more righteous worker than I; forasmuch as

I gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again no more. {38:27}

And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins

were in her womb. {38:28} And it came to pass, when she travailed, that

one put out a hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a

scarlet thread, saying, This came out first. {38:29} And it came to

pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and

she said, Wherefore have you made a breach for yourself? Therefore his

name was called Perez. {38:30} And afterward came out his brother, that

had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zerah.

 

 

O1)39

   {39:1} And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an

officer of Pharaoh's, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him

of the hand of the Ishmaelites, that had brought him down there.

{39:2} And Yehovah was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he

was in the house of his master the Egyptian. {39:3} And his master saw

that Yehovah was with him, and that Yehovah made all that he did to

prosper in his hand. {39:4} And Joseph found favor in his sight, and he

ministered unto him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all

that he had he put into his hand. {39:5} And it came to pass from the

time that he made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had,

that Yehovah blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the

blessing of Yehovah was upon all that he had, in the house and in the

field. {39:6} And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew

not anything [that was] with him, save the bread which he did eat. And

Joseph was comely, and well-favored. {39:7} And it came to pass after

these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she

said, Lie with me. {39:8} But he refused, and said unto his master's

wife, Behold, my master knows not what is with me in the house, and

he has put all that he has into my hand: {39:9} he is not greater in

this house than I; neither has he kept back anything from me but you,

because you are his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and

sin against God? {39:10} And it came to pass, as she spoke to Joseph

day by day, that he heard not unto her, to lie by her, [or] to be

with her. {39:11} And it came to pass about this time, that he went

into the house to do his work; and there was none of the men of the

house there within. {39:12} And she caught him by his garment, saying,

Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him

out. {39:13} And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his

garment in her hand, and was fled forth, {39:14} that she called unto

the men of her house, and spoke unto them, saying, See, he has brought

in a Hebrew unto us to mock us: he came in unto me to lie with me, and

I cried with a loud voice: {39:15} and it came to pass, when he heard

that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment by me,

and fled, and got him out. {39:16} And she laid up his garment by her,

until his master came home. {39:17} And she spoke unto him according to

these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, whom you have brought unto

us, came in unto me to mock me: {39:18} and it came to pass, as I

lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment by me, and fled

out.

 

   {39:19} And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his

wife, which she spoke unto him, saying, After this manner did your

servant to me; that his wrath was kindled. {39:20} And Joseph's master

took him, and put him into the prison, the place where the king's

prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison. {39:21} But

Yehovah was with Joseph, and showed kindness unto him, and gave him

favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. {39:22} And the keeper

of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in

the prison; and what so ever they did there, he was the doer of it.

{39:23} The keeper of the prison looked not to anything that was under

his hand, because Yehovah was with him; and that which he did, Yehovah

made it prosper.

 

O1)40

{40:1} And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of

the king of Egypt and his baker offended their lord the king of Egypt.

{40:2} And Pharaoh was wroth against his two officers, against the

chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers. {40:3} And

he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the

prison, the place where Joseph was bound. {40:4} And the captain of the

guard charged Joseph with them, and he ministered unto them: and they

continued a season in ward. {40:5} And they dreamed a dream both of

them, each man his dream, in one night, each man according to the

interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of

Egypt, who were bound in the prison. {40:6} And Joseph came in unto

them in the morning, and saw them, and, behold, they were sad. {40:7}

And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in ward in his

master's house, saying, Wherefore look you so sad to-day? {40:8} And

they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can

interpret it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong

to God? tell it me, I pray you.

 

   {40:9} And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to

him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me; {40:10} and in the vine

were three branches: and it was as though it budded, [and] its blossoms

shot forth; [and] the clusters of it brought forth ripe grapes:

{40:11} and Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes, and

pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's

hand. {40:12} And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of

it: the three branches are three days; {40:13} within yet three days

shall Pharaoh lift up your head, and restore you unto your office: and

you shall give Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner

when you was his butler. {40:14} But have me in your remembrance when

it shall be well with you, and show kindness, I pray you, unto me,

and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

{40:15} for indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews:

and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the

dungeon.

 

   {40:16} When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good,

he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, three baskets

of white bread were on my head: {40:17} and in the uppermost basket

there was of all manner of baked food for Pharaoh; and the birds did

eat them out of the basket upon my head. {40:18} And Joseph answered

and said, This is the interpretation there: the three baskets are

three days; {40:19} within yet three days shall Pharaoh lift up your

head from off you, and shall hang you on a tree; and the birds shall

eat your flesh from off you. {40:20} And it came to pass the third day,

which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast unto all his

servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and the head of

the chief baker among his servants. {40:21} And he restored the chief

butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's

hand: {40:22} but he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted

to them. {40:23} yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgot him.

 

 

 

O1)41

   {41:1} And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that

Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river. {41:2} And,

behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, well-favored and

fat-fleshed; and they fed in the reed-grass. {41:3} And, behold, seven

other kine came up after them out of the river, ill-favored and

lean-fleshed, and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.

{41:4} And the ill-favored and lean-fleshed kine did eat up the seven

well-favored and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke. {41:5} And he slept and

dreamed a second time: and, behold, seven ears of grain came up upon

one stalk, rank and good. {41:6} And, behold, seven ears, thin and

blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them. {41:7} And the thin

ears swallowed up the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and,

behold, it was a dream. {41:8} And it came to pass in the morning that

his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians

of Egypt, and all the wise men there: and Pharaoh told them his

dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

 

   {41:9} Then spoke the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do

remember my faults this day: {41:10} Pharaoh was wroth with his

servants, and put me in ward in the house of the captain of the guard,

me and the chief baker: {41:11} and we dreamed a dream in one night, I

and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his

dream. {41:12} And there was with us there a young man, a Hebrew,

servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he

interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did

interpret. {41:13} And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it

was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

 

   {41:14} Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him

hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his

raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh. {41:15} And Pharaoh said unto

Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret

it: and I have heard say of you, that when you hear a dream you

canst interpret it. {41:16} And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is

not in me: God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace. {41:17} And

Pharaoh spoke unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the brink

of the river: {41:18} and, behold, there came up out of the river seven

kine, fat-fleshed and well-favored: and they fed in the reed-grass:

{41:19} and, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very

ill-favored and lean-fleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of

Egypt for badness: {41:20} and the lean and ill-favored kine did eat up

the first seven fat kine: {41:21} and when they had eaten them up, it

could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still

ill-favored, as at the beginning. So I awoke. {41:22} And I saw in my

dream, and, behold, seven ears came up upon one stalk, full and good:

{41:23} and, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, [and] blasted with the

east wind, sprung up after them: {41:24} and the thin ears swallowed up

the seven good ears: and I told it unto the magicians; but there was

none that could declare it to me.

 

   {41:25} And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one:

what God is about to do he has declared unto Pharaoh. {41:26} The

seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven

years: the dream is one. {41:27} And the seven lean and ill-favored

kine that came up after them are seven years, and also the seven empty

ears blasted with the east wind; they shall be seven years of famine.

{41:28} That is the thing which I spoke unto Pharaoh: what God is about

to do he has showed unto Pharaoh. {41:29} Behold, there come seven

years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt: {41:30} and

there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty

shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume

the land; {41:31} and the plenty shall not be known in the land by

reason of that famine which follows; for it shall be very grievous.

{41:32} And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh, it is because

the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

{41:33} Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and

set him over the land of Egypt. {41:34} Let Pharaoh do [this], and let

him appoint overseers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the

land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years. {41:35} And let them gather

all the food of these good years that come, and lay up grain under the

hand of Pharaoh for food in the cities, and let them keep it. {41:36}

And the food shall be for a store to the land against the seven years

of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish

not through the famine.

 

   {41:37} And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the

eyes of all his servants. {41:38} And Pharaoh said unto his servants,

Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom the spirit of God is?

{41:39} And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God has showed you

all of this, there is none so discreet and wise as you: {41:40} you

shall be over my house, and according unto your word shall all my people

be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than you. {41:41} And

Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set you over all the land of

Egypt. {41:42} And Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand, and

put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen,

and put a gold chain about his neck; {41:43} and he made him to ride in

the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the

knee: and he set him over all the land of Egypt. {41:44} And Pharaoh

said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and outside you shall no man lift up

his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt. {41:45} And Pharaoh

called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath,

the daughter of Poti-phera priest of On. And Joseph went out over the

land of Egypt.

 

   {41:46} And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh

king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and

went throughout all the land of Egypt. {41:47} And in the seven

plenteous years the earth brought forth by handfuls. {41:48} And he

gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of

Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which

was round about every city, laid he up in the same. {41:49} And Joseph

laid up grain as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left off

numbering; for it was outside number. {41:50} And unto Joseph were born

two sons before the year of famine came, whom Asenath, the daughter of

Potiphera priest of On, bare unto him. {41:51} And Joseph called the

name of the first-born Manasseh: For, [said he], God has made me

forget all my toil, and all my father's house. {41:52} And the name of

the second called he Ephraim: For God has made me fruitful in the land

of my affliction. {41:53} And the seven years of plenty, that was in

the land of Egypt, came to an end. {41:54} And the seven years of

famine began to come, according as Joseph had said: and there was

famine in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

{41:55} And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried

to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto

Joseph; what he said to you, do. {41:56} And the famine was over all

the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the store-houses, and sold

unto the Egyptians; and the famine was sore in the land of Egypt.

{41:57} And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph to buy grain,

because the famine was sore in all the earth.

 

 

O1)42

   {42:1} Now Jacob saw that there was grain in Egypt, and Jacob said

unto his sons, Why do you look one upon another? {42:2} And he said,

Behold, I have heard that there is grain in Egypt: get you down

there, and buy for us from there; that we may live, and not die.

{42:3} And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy grain from Egypt.

{42:4} But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his

brethren; for he said, Lest Peradventure harm befall him. {42:5} And

the sons of Israel came to buy among those that came: for the famine

was in the land of Canaan. {42:6} And Joseph was the governor over the

land; he it was that sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph's

brethren came, and bowed down themselves to him with their faces to the

earth. {42:7} And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made

himself strange unto them, and spoke roughly with them; and he said

unto them. Where come you? And they said, From the land of Canaan to

buy food. {42:8} And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

{42:9} And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and

said unto them, you are spies; to see the nakedness of the land you are

come. {42:10} And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are

your servants come. {42:11} We are all one man's sons; we are true men,

your servants are no spies. {42:12} And he said unto them, Nay, but to

see the nakedness of the land you are come. {42:13} And they said, We

your servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one man in the land of

Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one

is not. {42:14} And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spoke unto

you, saying, you are spies: {42:15} hereby you shall be proved: by the

life of Pharaoh you shall not go forth from here, except your youngest

brother come here. {42:16} Send one of you, and let him fetch your

brother, and you shall be bound, that your words may be proved, whether

there be truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely you are

spies. {42:17} And he put them all together into ward three days.

 

   {42:18} And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live:

for I fear God: {42:19} if you be true men, let one of your brethren be

bound in your prison-house; but go you, carry grain for the famine of

your houses: {42:20} and bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall

your words be verified, and you shall not die. And they did so. {42:21}

And they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our

brother, in that we saw the distress of his soul, when he beg us,

and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us. {42:22}

And Reuben answered them, saying, Spoke I not unto you, saying, Do not

sin against the child; and you would not hear? therefore also, behold,

his blood is required. {42:23} And they knew not that Joseph understood

them; for there was an interpreter between them. {42:24} And he turned

himself about from them, and wept; and he returned to them, and spoke

to them, and took Simeon from among them, and bound him before their

eyes. {42:25} Then Joseph commanded to fill their vessels with grain,

and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them

provisions for the way: and thus was it done unto them.

 

   {42:26} And they laded their asses with their grain, and departed

there. {42:27} And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass

provender in the lodging-place, he espied his money; and, behold, it

was in the mouth of his sack. {42:28} And he said unto his brethren, My

money is restored; and, lo, it is even in my sack: and their heart

failed them, and they turned trembling one to another, saying, What is

this that God has done unto us? {42:29} And they came unto Jacob their

father unto the land of Canaan, and told him all that had befallen

them, saying, {42:30} The man, the lord of the land, spoke roughly with

us, and took us for spies of the country. {42:31} And we said unto him,

We are true men; and we are no spies: {42:32} we are twelve brethren,

sons of our father; one is not, and the youngest is this day with our

father in the land of Canaan. {42:33} And the man, the lord of the

land, said unto us, Hereby shall I know that you are true men: leave one

of your brethren with me, and take [grain for] the famine of your

houses, and go your way; {42:34} and bring your youngest brother unto

me: then shall I know that you are no spies, but that you are true men:

so will I deliver you your brother, and you shall traffic in the land.

 

   {42:35} And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that,

behold, every man's bundle of money was in his sack: and when they and

their father saw their bundles of money, they were afraid. {42:36} And

Jacob their father said unto them, Me have you bereaved of my children:

Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and you will take Benjamin away: all

these things are against me. {42:37} And Reuben spoke unto his father,

saying, Slay my two sons, if I bring him not to you: deliver him into

my hand, and I will bring him to you again. {42:38} And he said, My

son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he only is

left: if harm befall him by the way in which you go, then will you bring

down my gray hairs with sorrow to Sheol.

 

 

O1)43

   {43:1} And the famine was sore in the land. {43:2} And it came to

pass, when they had eaten up the grain which they had brought out of

Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.

{43:3} And Judah spoke unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest

unto us, saying, you shall not see my face, except your brother be with

you. {43:4} If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and

buy you food: {43:5} but if you will not send him, we will not go

down; for the man said unto us, you shall not see my face, except your

brother be with you. {43:6} And Israel said, Wherefore dealt you so ill

with me, as to tell the man whether you had yet a brother? {43:7} And

they said, The man asked strictly concerning ourselves, and concerning

our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have you [another]

brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could

we in any wise know that he would say, Bring your brother down? {43:8}

And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we

will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and you,

and also our little ones. {43:9} I will be surety for him; of my hand

shall you require him: if I bring him not unto you, and set him

before you, then let me bear the blame for ever: {43:10} for except we

had lingered, surely we had now returned a second time. {43:11} And

their father Israel said unto them, If it be so now, do this: take of

the choice fruits of the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a

present, a little balm, and a little honey, spicery and myrrh, nuts,

and almonds; {43:12} and take double money in your hand; and the money

that was returned in the mouth of your sacks carry again in your hand;

peradventure it was an oversight: {43:13} take also your brother, and

arise, go again unto the man: {43:14} and God Almighty give you mercy

before the man, that he may release unto you your other brother and

Benjamin. And if I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved. {43:15}

And the men took that present, and they took double money in their

hand, and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood

before Joseph. {43:16} And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said

to the steward of his house, Bring the men into the house, and slay,

and make ready; for the men shall dine with me at noon. {43:17} And the

man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men to Joseph's house.

{43:18} And the men were afraid, because they were brought to Joseph's

house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our

sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion

against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

{43:19} And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they

spoke unto him at the door of the house, {43:20} and said, Oh, my lord,

we came indeed down at the first time to buy food: {43:21} and it came

to pass, when we came to the lodging-place, that we opened our sacks,

and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money

in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand. {43:22} And

other money have we brought down in our hand to buy food: we know not

who put our money in our sacks. {43:23} And he said, Peace be to you,

fear not: your God, and the God of your father, has given you treasure

in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.

{43:24} And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them

water, and they washed their feet. And he gave their asses provender.

{43:25} And they made ready the present against Joseph's coming at

noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

 

   {43:26} And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present

which was in their hand into the house, and bowed down themselves to

him to the earth. {43:27} And he asked them of their welfare, and said,

Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he yet alive?

{43:28} And they said, Your servant our father is well, he is yet alive.

And they bowed the head, and made obeisance. {43:29} And he lifted up

his eyes, and saw Benjamin his brother, his mother's son, and said, Is

this your youngest brother, of whom you spoke unto me? And he said, God

be gracious unto you, my son. {43:30} And Joseph made haste; for his

heart yearned over his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he

entered into his chamber, and wept there. {43:31} And he washed his

face, and came out; and he refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

{43:32} And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves,

and for the Egyptians, that did eat with him, by themselves: because

the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an

abomination unto the Egyptians. {43:33} And they sat before him, the

first-born according to his birthright, and the youngest according to

his youth: and the men marveled one with another. {43:34} And he took

[and sent] messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was

five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry

with him.

 

 

O1)44

   {44:1} And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the

men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's

money in his sack's mouth. {44:2} And put my cup, the silver cup, in

the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his grain money. And he did

according to the word that Joseph had spoken. {44:3} As soon as the

morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses. {44:4}

[And] when they were gone out of the city, and were not yet far off,

Joseph said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when you

do overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have you rewarded evil for

good? {44:5} Is not this that in which my lord drinks, and by which he

indeed divines? you have done evil in so doing. {44:6} And he overtook

them, and he spoke unto them these words. {44:7} And they said unto

him, Wherefore speaks my lord such words as these? Far be it from your

servants that they should do such a thing. {44:8} Behold, the money,

which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought again unto you out of

the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of your lord's house

silver or gold? {44:9} With whom so ever of your servants it be found, let

him die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen. {44:10} And he said,

Now also let it be according unto your words: he with whom it is found

shall be my bondman; and you shall be blameless. {44:11} Then they

hurried, and took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened

every man his sack. {44:12} And he searched, [and] began at the eldest,

and left off at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

{44:13} Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and

returned to the city.

 

   {44:14} And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; and he

was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground. {44:15} And

Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that you have done? know you not

that such a man as I can indeed divine? {44:16} And Judah said, What

shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear

ourselves? God has found out the work without law of your servants: behold, we

are my lord's bondmen, both we, and he also in whose hand the cup is

found. {44:17} And he said, Far be it from me that I should do so: the

man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my bondman; but as for

you, get you up in peace unto your father.

 

   {44:18} Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh, my lord, let

your servant, I pray you, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not

your anger burn against your servant; for you are even as Pharaoh.

{44:19} My lord asked his servants, saying, Have you a father, or a

brother? {44:20} And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old

man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead,

and he alone is left of his mother; and his father loves him. {44:21}

And you said unto your servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may

set mine eyes upon him. {44:22} And we said unto my lord, The lad

cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father

would die. {44:23} And you said unto your servants, Except your

youngest brother come down with you, you shall see my face no more.

{44:24} And it came to pass when we came up unto your servant my father,

we told him the words of my lord. {44:25} And our father said, Go

again, buy us a little food. {44:26} And we said, We cannot go down: if

our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not

see the man's face, expect our youngest brother be with us. {44:27} And

your servant my father said unto us, you know that my wife bare me two

sons: {44:28} and the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is

torn in pieces; and I have not seen him since: {44:29} and if you take

this one also from me, and harm befall him, you will bring down my gray

hairs with sorrow to Sheol. {44:30} Now therefore when I come to your

servant my father, and the lad is not with us; seeing that his life is

bound up in the lad's life; {44:31} it will come to pass, when he sees

that the lad is not [with us], that he will die: and your servants will

bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to

Sheol. {44:32} For your servant became surety for the lad unto my

father, saying, If I bring him not unto you, then shall I bear the

blame to my father for ever. {44:33} Now therefore, let your servant, I

pray you, abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the

lad go up with his brethren. {44:34} For how shall I go up to my

father, if the lad be not with me? lest I see the evil that shall come

on my father.

 

 

O1)45

   {45:1} Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that

stood before him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And

there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his

brethren. {45:2} And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians heard, and the

house of Pharaoh heard. {45:3} And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am

Joseph; does my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him;

for they were troubled at his presence. {45:4} And Joseph said unto his

brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said,

I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. {45:5} And now be

not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that you sold me here: for God

did send me before you to preserve life. {45:6} For these two years

has the famine been in the land: and there are yet five years, in

which there shall be neither plowing nor harvest. {45:7} And God sent

me before you to preserve you a remnant in the earth, and to save you

alive by a great deliverance. {45:8} So now it was not you that sent me

here, but God: and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of

all his house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt. {45:9} Haste you,

and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus said your son Joseph,

God has made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not;

{45:10} and you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be

near unto me, you, and your children, and your children's children, and

your flocks, and your herds, and all that you have: {45:11} and there

will I nourish you; for there are yet five years of famine; lest you

come to poverty, you, and your household, and all that you have.

{45:12} And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother

Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaks unto you. {45:13} And you

shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that you have

seen: and you shall haste and bring down my father here. {45:14} And

he fell upon his brother Benjamin's neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept

upon his neck. {45:15} And he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon

them: and after that his brethren talked with him. {45:16} And the

report of it was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren

are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants. {45:17} And

Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto your brethren, This do you: lade your

beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan; {45:18} and take your

father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the

good of the land of Egypt, and you shall eat the fat of the land.

{45:19} Now you are commanded, this do you: take you wagons out of the

land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your

father, and come. {45:20} Also regard not your stuff; for the good of

all the land of Egypt is yours.

 

   {45:21} And the sons of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons,

according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for

the way. {45:22} To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment;

but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five

changes of raiment. {45:23} And to his father he sent after this

manner: ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten

she-asses laden with grain and bread and provision for his father by

the way. {45:24} So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and

he said unto them, See that you fall not out by the way. {45:25} And

they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob

their father. {45:26} And they told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive,

and he is ruler over all the land of Egypt. And his heart fainted, for

he believed them not. {45:27} And they told him all the words of

Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which

Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived:

{45:28} and Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I

will go and see him before I die.

 

 

 

 

 

O1)46

   {46:1} And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to

Beer-sheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.

{46:2} And God spoke unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said,

Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I. {46:3} And he said, I am God, the

God of your father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there

make of you a great nation: {46:4} I will go down with you into

Egypt; and I will also surely bring you up again: and Joseph shall put

his hand upon your eyes. {46:5} And Jacob rose up from Beer-sheba: and

the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones,

and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.

{46:6} And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had

gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his

seed with him: {46:7} his sons, and his sons' sons with him, his

daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with

him into Egypt.

 

   {46:8} And these are the names of the children of Israel, who came

into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's first-born. {46:9} And

the sons of Reuben: Hanoch, and Pallu, and Hezron, and Carmi. {46:10}

And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and

Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman. {46:11} And the sons

of Levi: Gershon, Kohas, and Merari. {46:12} And the sons of Judah:

Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Perez, and Zerah; but Er and Onan died in

the land of Canaan. And the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul.

{46:13} And the sons of Issachar: Tola, and Puvah, and Iob, and

Shimron. {46:14} And the sons of Zebulun: Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.

{46:15} These are the sons of Leah, whom she bare unto Jacob in

Paddan-aram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his

daughters were thirty and three. {46:16} And the sons of Gad: Ziphion,

and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli. {46:17} And the

sons of Asher: Imnah, and Ishvah, and Ishvi, and Beriah, and Serah

their sister; and the sons of Beriah: Heber, and Malchiel. {46:18}

These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter; and

these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls. {46:19} The sons of

Rachel Jacob's wife: Joseph and Benjamin. {46:20} And unto Joseph in

the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, whom Asenath, the

daughter of Poti-phera priest of On, bare unto him. {46:21} And the

sons of Benjamin: Bela, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi,

and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard. {46:22} These are the sons of

Rachel, who were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen. {46:23}

And the sons of Dan: Hushim. {46:24} And the sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel,

and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem. {46:25} These are the sons of Bilhah,

whom Laban gave unto Rachel his daughter, and these she bare unto

Jacob: all the souls were seven. {46:26} All the souls that came with

Jacob into Egypt, that came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons'

wives, all the souls were threescore and six; {46:27} and the sons of

Joseph, who were born to him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of

the house of Jacob, that came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.

 

   {46:28} And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to show the way

before him unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen. {46:29}

And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his

father, to Goshen; and he presented himself unto him, and fell on his

neck, and wept on his neck a good while. {46:30} And Israel said unto

Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen your face, that you are yet

alive. {46:31} And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's

house, I will go up, and tell Pharaoh, and will say unto him, My

brethren, and my father's house, who were in the land of Canaan, are

come unto me; {46:32} and the men are shepherds, for they have been

keepers of cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds,

and all that they have. {46:33} And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh

shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation? {46:34} that you

shall say, Your servants have been keepers of cattle from our youth even

until now, both we, and our fathers: that you may dwell in the land of

Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.

 

 

O1)47

   {47:1} Then Joseph went in and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and

my brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have,

are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the land

of Goshen. {47:2} And from among his brethren he took five men, and

presented them unto Pharaoh. {47:3} And Pharaoh said unto his brethren,

What is your occupation? And they said unto Pharaoh, Your servants are

shepherds, both we, and our fathers. {47:4} And they said unto Pharaoh,

To sojourn in the land are we come; for there is no pasture for your

servants' flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now

therefore, we pray you, let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen.

{47:5} And Pharaoh spoke unto Joseph, saying, Your father and your

brethren are come unto you: {47:6} the land of Egypt is before you;

in the best of the land make your father and your brethren to dwell; in

the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if you know any able men

among them, then make them rulers over my cattle. {47:7} And Joseph

brought in Jacob his father, and set him before Pharaoh: and Jacob

blessed Pharaoh. {47:8} And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How many are the

days of the years of your life? {47:9} And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The

days of the years of my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty years: few

and evil have been the days of the years of my life, and they have not

attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the

days of their pilgrimage. {47:10} And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went

out from the presence of Pharaoh. {47:11} And Joseph placed his father

and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in

the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.

{47:12} And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his

father's household, with bread, according to their families.

 

   {47:13} And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was

very sore, so that the land of Egypt and the land of Canaan fainted by

reason of the famine. {47:14} And Joseph gathered up all the money that

was found in the land of Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the

grain which they bought: and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's

house. {47:15} And when the money was all spent in the land of Egypt,

and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and

said, Give us bread: for why should we die in your presence? for [our]

money fails. {47:16} And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will

give you for your cattle, if money fail. {47:17} And they brought their

cattle unto Joseph; and Joseph gave them bread in exchange for the

horses, and for the flocks, and for the herds, and for the asses: and

he fed them with bread in exchange for all their cattle for that year.

{47:18} And when that year was ended, they came unto him the second

year, and said unto him, We will not hide from my lord, how that our

money is all spent; and the herds of cattle are my lord's; there is

nothing left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:

{47:19} wherefore should we die before your eyes, both we and our

land? buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be

servants unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die,

and that the land be not desolate.

 

   {47:20} So Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the

Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine was sore upon

them: and the land became Pharaoh's. {47:21} And as for the people, he

removed them to the cities from one end of the border of Egypt even to

the other end there. {47:22} Only the land of the priests bought he

not: for the priests had a portion from Pharaoh, and did eat their

portion which Pharaoh gave them; wherefore they sold not their land.

{47:23} Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you

this day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and you

shall sow the land. {47:24} And it shall come to pass at the

ingathering, that you shall give a fifth unto Pharaoh, and four parts

shall be your own, for seed of the field, and for your food, and for

them of your households, and for food for your little ones. {47:25} And

they said, you have saved our lives: let us find favor in the sight of

my lord, and we will be Pharaoh's servants. {47:26} And Joseph made it

a statute concerning the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh

should have the fifth; only the land of the priests alone became not

Pharaoh's.

 

   {47:27} And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the land of

Goshen; and they gat them possessions therein, and were fruitful, and

multiplied exceedingly. {47:28} And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt

seventeen years: so the days of Jacob, the years of his life, were a

hundred forty and seven years. {47:29} And the time drew near that

Israel must die: and he called his son Joseph, and said unto him, If

now I have found favor in your sight, put, I pray you, your hand under

my thigh, and deal kindly and truly with me: bury me not, I pray you,

in Egypt; {47:30} but when I sleep with my fathers, you shall carry me

out of Egypt, and bury me in their burying-place. And he said, I will

do as you have said. {47:31} And he said, Swear unto me: and he swore

unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head.

 

 

O1)48

   {48:1} And it came to pass after these things, that one said to

Joseph, Behold, your father is sick: and he took with him his two sons,

Manasseh and Ephraim. {48:2} And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, your

son Joseph comes unto you: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat

upon the bed. {48:3} And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared

unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me, {48:4} and said

unto me, Behold, I will make you fruitful, and multiply you, and I

will make of you a company of peoples, and will give this land to your

seed after you for an everlasting possession. {48:5} And now your two

sons, who were born unto you in the land of Egypt before I came unto

you into Egypt, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh, even as Reuben and

Simeon, shall be mine. {48:6} And your issue, that you beget after

them, shall be your; they shall be called after the name of their

brethren in their inheritance. {48:7} And as for me, when I came from

Paddan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when there

was still some distance to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in

the way to Ephrath (the same is Beth-lehem).

 

   {48:8} And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?

{48:9} And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God has

given me here. And he said, Bring them, I pray you, unto me, and I

will bless them. {48:10} Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so

that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed

them, and embraced them. {48:11} And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not

thought to see your face: and, lo, God has let me see your seed also.

{48:12} And Joseph brought them out from between his knees; and he

bowed himself with his face to the earth. {48:13} And Joseph took them

both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh

in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near unto

him. {48:14} And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon

Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's

head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the first-born.

{48:15} And he blessed Joseph, and said, The God before whom my fathers

Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God who has fed me all my life long

unto this day, {48:16} the messenger who has redeemed me from all evil,

bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my

fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the

midst of the earth. {48:17} And when Joseph saw that his father laid

his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held

up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's

head. {48:18} And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father; for

this is the first-born; put your right hand upon his head. {48:19} And

his father refused, and said, I know [it], my son, I know [it]. He also

shall become a people, and he also shall be great: howbeit his younger

brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude

of nations. {48:20} And he blessed them that day, saying, In you will

Israel bless, saying, God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he

set Ephraim before Manasseh. {48:21} And Israel said unto Joseph,

Behold, I die: but God will be with you, and bring you again unto the

land of your fathers. {48:22} Also I have given to you one portion

above your brethren, which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my

sword and with my bow.

 

 

O1)49

   {49:1} And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: gather yourselves

together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the latter

days.

{49:2} Assemble yourselves, and hear, you sons of Jacob;

And hear unto Israel your father.

{49:3} Reuben, you are my first-born, my might, and the beginning of

      my strength;

The pre-eminence of dignity, and the pre-eminence of power.

{49:4} Boiling over as water, you shall not have the pre-eminence;

Because you went up to your father's bed;

Then you defiled it: he went up to my couch.

{49:5} Simeon and Levi are brethren;

Weapons of violence are their swords.

{49:6} O my soul, come not you into their council;

Unto their Ekklesia, my glory, you be not united;

For in their anger they slew a man,

And in their self-will they hocked an ox.

{49:7} A cursed be their anger, for it was fierce;

And their wrath, for it was cruel:

I will divide them in Jacob,

And scatter them in Israel.

{49:8} Judah, you shall your brethren praise:

Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;

Your father's sons shall bow down before you.

{49:9} Judah is a lion's whelp;

From the prey, my son, you are gone up:

He stooped down, he couched as a lion,

And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up?

{49:10} The Scepter shall not depart from Judah,

Nor the ruler's staff from between his feet,

Until Shiloh come:

And unto him shall the obedience of the peoples be.

{49:11} Binding his foal unto the vine,

And his ass's colt unto the choice vine;

He has washed his garments in wine,

And his vesture in the blood of grapes:

{49:12} His eyes shall be red with wine,

And his teeth white with milk.

{49:13} Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea;

And he shall be for a haven of ships;

And his border shall be upon Sidon.

{49:14} Issachar is a strong ass,

Couching down between the sheepfolds:

{49:15} And he saw a resting-place that it was good,

And the land that it was pleasant;

And he bowed his shoulder to bear,

And became a servant under task work.

{49:16} Dan shall judge his people,

As one of the tribes of Israel.

{49:17} Dan shall be a serpent in the way,

An adder in the path,

That bit the horse's heels,

So that his rider falls backward.

{49:18} I have waited for your salvation, O Yehovah.

{49:19} Gad, a troop shall press upon him;

But he shall press upon their heel.

{49:20} Out of the Asher his bread shall be fat,

And he shall yield royal dainties.

{49:21} Naphtali is a hind let loose:

He gives goodly words.

{49:22} Joseph is a fruitful bough,

A fruitful bough by a fountain;

His branches run over the wall.

{49:23} The archers have sorely grieved him,

And shot at him, and persecute him:

{49:24} But his bow abode in strength,

And the arms of his hands were made strong,

By the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob,

(From there is the shepherd, the stone of Israel),

{49:25} Even by the God of your father, who shall help you,

And by the Almighty, who shall bless you,

With blessings of heaven above,

Blessings of the deep that couches beneath,

Blessings of the breasts, and of the womb.

{49:26} The blessings of your father

Have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors

Unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills:

They shall be on the head of Joseph,

And on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.

{49:27} Benjamin is a wolf that ravens:

In the morning she shall devour the prey,

And at even he shall divide the spoil.

 

   {49:28} All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it

that their father spoke unto them and blessed them; every one according

to his blessing he blessed them. {49:29} And he charged them, and said

unto them, I am to be gathered unto my people: bury me with my fathers

in the cave that is in the field of Ephron the Hittite, {49:30} in the

cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before Mamre, in the

land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the

Hittite for a possession of a burying-place. {49:31} there they buried

Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his

wife; and there I buried Leah: {49:32} the field and the cave that is

therein, which was purchased from the children of Heth. {49:33} And

when Jacob made an end of charging his sons, he gathered up his feet

into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his

people.

 

 

O1)50

   {50:1} And Joseph fell upon his father's face, and wept upon him,

and kissed him. {50:2} And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians

to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel. {50:3} And

forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of

embalming: and the Egyptians wept for him three-score and ten days.

 

   {50:4} And when the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph spoke

unto the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found favor in your

eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying, {50:5} My

father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I have

dug for me in the land of Canaan, there shall you bury me. Now

therefore let me go up, I pray you, and bury my father, and I will

come again. {50:6} And Pharaoh said, Go up, and bury your father,

according as he made you swear. {50:7} And Joseph went up to bury his

father; and with him went up all the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of

his house, and all the elders of the land of Egypt, {50:8} and all the

house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father's house: only their

little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they left in the land

of Goshen. {50:9} And there went up with him both chariots and

horsemen: and it was a very great company. {50:10} And they came to the

threshing-floor of Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, and there they

lamented with a very great and sore lamentation: and he made a grieveing

for his father seven days. {50:11} And when the inhabitants of the

land, the Canaanites, saw the grieveing in the floor of Atad, they said,

This is a grievous grieveing to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it

was called Abel-mizraim, which is beyond the Jordan. {50:12} And his

sons did unto him according as he commanded them: {50:13} for his sons

carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the

field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with the field, for a

possession of a burying-place, of Ephron the Hittite, before Mamre.

{50:14} And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all

that went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his

father.

 

   {50:15} And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead,

they said, It may be that Joseph will hate us, and will fully requite

us all the evil which we did unto him. {50:16} And they sent a message

unto Joseph, saying, Your father did command before he died, saying,

{50:17} So shall you say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray you now, the

transgression of the law of your brethren, and their sin, for that they did unto

you evil. And now, we pray you, forgive the transgression of the law of the

servants of the God of your father. And Joseph wept when they spoke unto

him. {50:18} And his brethren also went and fell down before his face;

and they said, Behold, we are your servants. {50:19} And Joseph said

unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? {50:20} And as for

you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to

pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. {50:21} Now

therefore fear you not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he

comforted them, and spoke kindly unto them.

 

   {50:22} And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and

Joseph lived a hundred and ten years. {50:23} And Joseph saw Ephraim's

children of the third generation: the children also of Machir the son

of Manasseh were born upon Joseph's knees. {50:24} And Joseph said unto

his brethren, I die; but God will surely visit you, and bring you up

out of this land unto the land which he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and

to Jacob. {50:25} And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel,

saying, God will surely visit you, and you shall carry up my bones from

here. {50:26} So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old: and

they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

 

 

  O2)1   The Book of Exodus

 

 

The Second Book of the Tora Called The Exodus

 

   {1:1} Now these are the names of the sons of Israel, who came into

Egypt (every man and his household came with Jacob): {1:2} Reuben,

Simeon, Levi, and Judah, {1:3} Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, {1:4}

Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher. {1:5} And all the souls that came out

of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: and Joseph was in Egypt

already. {1:6} And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that

generation. {1:7} And the children of Israel were fruitful, and

increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and

the land was filled with them.

 

   {1:8} Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who knew not Joseph.

{1:9} And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children

of Israel are more and mightier than we: {1:10} come, let us deal

wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when

there falls out any war, they also join themselves unto our enemies,

and fight against us, and get them up out of the land. {1:11} Therefore

they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens.

And they built for Pharaoh store-cities, Pithom and Raamses. {1:12} But

the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and the more

they spread abroad. And they were grieved because of the children of

Israel. {1:13} And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve

with rigor: {1:14} and they made their lives bitter with hard service,

in mortar and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field, all

their service, wherein they made them serve with rigor.

 

   {1:15} And the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, of whom

the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:

{1:16} and he said, When you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew

women, and see them upon the birth-stool; if it be a son, then you shall

kill him; but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. {1:17} But the

midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them,

but saved the men-children alive. {1:18} And the king of Egypt called

for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have you done this thing, and

have saved the men-children alive? {1:19} And the midwives said unto

Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for

they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwife come unto them.

{1:20} And God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied,

and waxed very mighty. {1:21} And it came to pass, because the midwives

feared God, that he made them households. {1:22} And Pharaoh charged

all his people, saying, Every son that is born you shall cast into the

river, and every daughter you shall save alive.

 

 

O2)2

   {2:1} And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a

daughter of Levi. {2:2} And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and

when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three moons.

{2:3} And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark

of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch; and she put the

child therein, and laid it in the flags by the river's brink. {2:4} And

his sister stood afar off, to know what would be done to him. {2:5} And

the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river; and her

maidens walked along by the river-side; and she saw the ark among the

flags, and sent her handmaid to fetch it. {2:6} And she opened it, and

saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on

him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children. {2:7} Then said

his sister to Pharaoh's daughter, shall I go and call you a nurse of

the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for you? {2:8} And

Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the maiden went and called the

child's mother. {2:9} And Pharaoh's daughter said unto her, Take this

child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give you your wages. And

the woman took the child, and nursed it. {2:10} And the child grew, and

she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and he became her son. And she

called his name Moses, and said, Because I drew him out of the water.

 

   {2:11} And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown up,

that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he

saw an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren. {2:12} And he

looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he

smote the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. {2:13} And he went out the

second day, and, behold, two men of the Hebrews were striving together:

and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smite you your

fellow? {2:14} And he said, Who made you a prince and a judge over us?

You think to kill me, as you killed the Egyptian? And Moses

feared, and said, Surely the thing is known. {2:15} Now when Pharaoh

heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face

of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

 

   {2:16} Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came

and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock.

{2:17} And the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up

and helped them, and watered their flock. {2:18} And when they came to

Reuel their father, he said, How is it that you are come so soon to-day?

{2:19} And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the

shepherds, and he also drew water for us, and watered the flock.

{2:20} And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? Why is it that

you have left the man? Call him, that he may eat bread. {2:21} And Moses

was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his

daughter. {2:22} And she bare a son, and he called his name Gershom;

for he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land.

 

   {2:23} And it came to pass in the course of those many days, that

the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of

the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason

of the bondage. {2:24} And God heard their groaning, and God remembered

his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. {2:25} And God

saw the children of Israel, and God took knowledge [of them].

 

 

O2)3

   {3:1} Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro his father-in-law,

the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the back of the

wilderness, and came to the mountain of God, unto Horeb. {3:2} And the

messenger of Yehovah appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst

of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and

the bush was not consumed. {3:3} And Moses said, I will turn aside now,

and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. {3:4} And when

Yehovah saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the

midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

{3:5} And he said, Draw not near here: put off your shoes from off your

feet, for the place whereon you stands is holy ground. {3:6}

He also said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the

God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was

afraid to look upon God. {3:7} And Yehovah said, I have surely seen the

affliction of my people that are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by

reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; {3:8} and I am

come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to

bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a

land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanite, and

the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and

the Jebusite. {3:9} And now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel

is come unto me: I also have seen the oppression wherewith the

Egyptians oppress them. {3:10} Come now therefore, and I will send you

unto Pharaoh, that you may bring forth my people the children of

Israel out of Egypt. {3:11} And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I

should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of

Israel out of Egypt? {3:12} And he said, Certainly I will be with you;

and this shall be the token unto you, that I have sent you: when you

have brought forth the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God upon

this mountain.

 

   {3:13} And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the

children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers

has sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What

shall I say unto them? {3:14} And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM:

and he said, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, I AM has

sent me unto you. {3:15} And God also said  unto Moses, Thus shall

you say unto the children of Israel, Yehovah, the God of your fathers,

the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent

me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all

generations. {3:16} Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and

say unto them, Yehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of

Isaac, and of Jacob, has appeared unto me, saying, I have surely

visited you, and [seen] that which is done to you in Egypt: {3:17} and

I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto

the land of the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the

Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, unto a land flowing with

milk and honey. {3:18} And they shall hear to your voice: and you

shall come, you and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and

you shall say unto him, Yehovah, the God of the Hebrews, has met with

us: and now let us go, we pray you, three days' journey into the

wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Yehovah our God. {3:19} And I know

that the king of Egypt will not give you leave to go, no, not by a

mighty hand. {3:20} And I will put forth my hand, and smite Egypt with

all my wonders which I will do in the midst there: and after that he

will let you go. {3:21} And I will give this people favor in the sight

of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when you go, you shall

not go empty. {3:22} But every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of

her that sojourns in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold,

and raiment: and you shall put them upon your sons, and upon your

daughters; and you shall despoil the Egyptians.

 

 

 

O2)4

   {4:1} And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not

believe me, nor hear unto my voice; for they will say, Yehovah has

not appeared unto you. {4:2} And Yehovah said unto him, What is that

in your hand? And he said, A rod. {4:3} And he said, Cast in on the

ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and

Moses fled from before it. {4:4} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Put forth

your hand, and take it by the tail: (and he put forth his hand, and laid

hold of it, and it became a rod in his hand:) {4:5} That they may

believe that Yehovah, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the

God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared unto you. {4:6} And

Yehovah said furthermore unto him, Put now your hand into your bosom. And

he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his

hand was leprous, as [white as] snow. {4:7} And he said, Put your hand

into your bosom again. (And he put his hand into his bosom again; and

when he took it out of his bosom, behold, it was turned again as his

[other] flesh.) {4:8} And it shall come to pass, if they will not

believe you, neither hear to the voice of the first sign, that they

will believe the voice of the latter sign. {4:9} And it shall come to

pass, if they will not believe even these two signs, neither hear

unto your voice, that you shall take of the water of the river, and

pour it upon the dry land: and the water which you takes out of the

river shall become blood upon the dry land.

 

   {4:10} And Moses said unto Yehovah, Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent,

neither heretofore, nor since you have spoken unto your servant; for I

am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. {4:11} And Yehovah said unto

him, Who has made man's mouth? Or who makes[a man] dumb, or deaf, or

seeing, or blind? Is it not I, Yehovah? {4:12} Now therefore go, and I

will be with your mouth, and teach you what you shall speak. {4:13}

And he said, Oh, Lord, send, I pray you, by the hand of him whom you

will send. {4:14} And the anger of Yehovah was kindled against Moses,

and he said, Is there not Aaron your brother the Levite? I know that he

can speak well. And also, behold, he comes forth to meet you: and

when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. {4:15} And you shall

speak unto him, and put the words in his mouth: and I will be with your

mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what you shall do. {4:16}

And he shall be your spokesman unto the people; and it shall come to

pass, that he shall be to you a mouth, and you shall be to him as

God. {4:17} And you shall take in your hand this rod, wherewith you

shall do the signs. {4:18} And Moses went and returned to Jethro his

father-in-law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray you, and return

unto my brethren that are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive.

And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. {4:19} And Yehovah said unto

Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt; for all the men are dead that

sought your life. {4:20} And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set

them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took

the rod of God in his hand. {4:21} And Yehovah said unto Moses, When

you go back into Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the

wonders which I have put in your hand: but I will harden his heart and

he will not let the people go. {4:22} And you shall say unto Pharaoh,

Thus said Yehovah, Israel is my son, my first-born: {4:23} and I have

said unto you, Let my son go, that he may serve me; and you have

refused to let him go: behold, I will slay your son, your first-born.

{4:24} And it came to pass on the way at the lodging-place, that

Yehovah met him, and sought to kill him. {4:25} Then Zipporah took a

flint, and cut off the foreskin of her son, and cast it at his feet;

and she said, Surely a bridegroom of blood are you to me. {4:26} So he

let him alone. Then she said, A bridegroom of blood [are you], because

of the circumcision.

 

   {4:27} And Yehovah said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet

Moses. And he went, and met him in the mountain of God, and kissed him.

{4:28} And Moses told Aaron all the words of Yehovah wherewith he had

sent him, and all the signs wherewith he had charged him. {4:29} And

Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of the

children of Israel: {4:30} and Aaron spoke all the words which Yehovah

had spoken unto Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.

{4:31} And the people believed: and when they heard that Yehovah had

visited the children of Israel, and that he had seen their affliction,

then they bowed their heads and worshipped.

 

 

O2)5

   {5:1} And afterward Moses and Aaron came, and said unto Pharaoh,

Thus said Yehovah, the God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may

hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. {5:2} And Pharaoh said, Who is

Yehovah, that I should hear unto his voice to let Israel go? I know

not Yehovah, and also I will not let Israel go. {5:3} And they

said, The God of the Hebrews has met with us: let us go, we pray you,

three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice unto Yehovah our

God, lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword. {5:4} And

the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do you, Moses and Aaron,

loose the people from their works? get you unto your burdens. {5:5} And

Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land are now many, and you make

them rest from their burdens. {5:6} And the same day Pharaoh commanded

the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying, {5:7} you

shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let

them go and gather straw for themselves. {5:8} And the number of the

bricks, which they did make heretofore, you shall lay upon them; you

shall not diminish anything there: for they are idle; therefore they

cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God. {5:9} Let heavier work

be laid upon the men, that they may labor therein; and let them not

regard lying words.

 

   {5:10} And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their

officers, and they spoke to the people, saying, Thus said Pharaoh, I

will not give you straw. {5:11} Go yourselves, get you straw where you

can find it: for nothing of your work shall be diminished. {5:12} So the

people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of Egypt to gather

stubble for straw. {5:13} And the taskmasters were urgent saying,

Fulfill your works, [your] daily tasks, as when there was straw. {5:14}

And the officers of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's taskmasters

had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have you not

fulfilled your task both yesterday and to-day, in making brick as

heretofore?

 

   {5:15} Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried

unto Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore deal you thus with your servants?

{5:16} There is no straw given unto your servants, and they say to us,

Make brick: and, behold, your servants are beaten; but the fault it in

your own people. {5:17} But he said, you are idle, you are idle:

therefore you say, Let us go and sacrifice to Yehovah. {5:18} Go

therefore now, and work; for there shall no straw be given you, yet

shall you deliver the number of bricks. {5:19} And the officers of the

children of Israel did see that they were in evil case, when it was

said, you shall not diminish anything from your bricks, [your] daily tasks.

{5:20} And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they came

forth from Pharaoh: {5:21} and they said unto them, Yehovah look upon

you, and judge: because you have made our savor to be abhorred in the

eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in

their hand to slay us.

 

   {5:22} And Moses returned unto Yehovah, and said, Lord, wherefore

have you dealt ill with this people? why is it that you have sent me?

{5:23} For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has dealt

ill with this people; neither have you delivered your people at all.

 

 

O2)6

   {6:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Now shall you see what I will do

to Pharaoh: for by a strong hand shall he let them go, and by a strong

hand shall he drive them out of his land.

 

   {6:2} And God spoke unto Moses, and said unto him, I am Yehovah:

{6:3} and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God

Almighty; but by my name Yehovah I was not known to them. {6:4} And I

have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of

Canaan, the land of their wonderings, wherein they traveled. {6:5}

And I also have heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom

the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant. {6:6}

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am Yehovah, and I will

bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid

you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched

arm, and with great judgments: {6:7} and I will take you to me for a

people, and I will be to you a God; and you shall know that I am Yehovah

your God, who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

{6:8} And I will bring you in unto the land which I swore to give to

Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it you for a heritage:

I am Yehovah. {6:9} And Moses spoke so unto the children of Israel: but

they heard not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel

bondage.

 

   {6:10} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:11} Go in, speak

unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of Israel go out

of his land. {6:12} And Moses spoke before Yehovah, saying, Behold, the

children of Israel have not heard unto me; how then shall Pharaoh

hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips? {6:13} And Yehovah spoke unto

Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a charge unto the children of

Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring the children of Israel

out of the land of Egypt.

 

   {6:14} These are the heads of their fathers' houses. The sons of

Reuben the first-born of Israel: Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi;

these are the families of Reuben. {6:15} And the sons of Simeon:

Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son

of a Canaanitish woman; these are the families of Simeon. {6:16} And

these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their generations:

Gershon, and Kohas, and Merari; and the years of the life of Levi were

a hundred thirty and seven years. {6:17} The sons of Gershon: Libni and

Shimei, according to their families. {6:18} And the sons of Kohas:

Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and Uzziel; and the years of the life of

Kohas were a hundred thirty and three years. {6:19} And the sons of

Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites

according to their generations. {6:20} And Amram took him Jochebed his

father's sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the

years of the life of Amram were a hundred and thirty and seven years.

{6:21} And the sons of Izhar: Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri. {6:22} And

the sons of Uzziel: Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Sithri. {6:23} And Aaron

took him Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon, to

wife; and she bare him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. {6:24} And

the sons of Korah: Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph; these are the

families of the Korahites. {6:25} And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one

of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas. These

are the heads of the fathers' [houses] of the Levites according to

their families. {6:26} These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom Yehovah

said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according

to their hosts. {6:27} These are they that spoke to Pharaoh king of

Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that

Moses and Aaron.

 

   {6:28} And it came to pass on the day when Yehovah spoke unto Moses

in the land of Egypt, {6:29} that Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, I

am Yehovah: speak you unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I speak unto

you. {6:30} And Moses said before Yehovah, Behold, I am of

uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh hear unto me?

 

 

 

O2)7

   {7:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, See, I have made you as God to

Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. {7:2} you shall

speak all that I command you; and Aaron your brother shall speak unto

Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel go out of his land. {7:3}

And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders

in the land of Egypt. {7:4} But Pharaoh will not hear unto you, and

I will lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth my hosts, my people the

children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. {7:5}

And the Egyptians shall know that I am Yehovah, when I stretch forth my

hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

{7:6} And Moses and Aaron did so; as Yehovah commanded them, so did

they. {7:7} And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and

three years old, when they spoke unto Pharaoh.

 

   {7:8} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {7:9}

When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Show a wonder for you; then

you shall say unto Aaron, Take your rod, and cast it down before

Pharaoh, that it become a serpent. {7:10} And Moses and Aaron went in

unto Pharaoh, and they did so, as Yehovah had commanded: and Aaron cast

down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a

serpent. {7:11} Then Pharaoh also called for the wise men and the

sorcerers: and they also, the magicians of Egypt, did in like manner

with their enchantments. {7:12} For they cast down every man his rod,

and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

{7:13} And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he heard not unto

them; as Yehovah had spoken.

 

   {7:14} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Pharaoh's heart is stubborn, he

refuses to let the people go. {7:15} Get you unto Pharaoh in the

morning; lo, he goes out unto the water; and you shall stand by the

river's brink to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent

shall you take in your hand. {7:16} And you shall say unto him,

Yehovah, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me unto you, saying, Let my

people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold,

hereto you have not heard. {7:17} Thus said Yehovah, In this

you shall know that I am Yehovah: behold, I will smite with the rod

that is in my hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they

shall be turned to blood. {7:18} And the fish that are in the river

shall die, and the river shall become foul; and the Egyptians shall

loathe to drink water from the river. {7:19} And Yehovah said unto

Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take your rod, and stretch out your hand over the

waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their streams, and over their

pools, and over all their ponds of water, that they may become blood;

and there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in

vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.

 

   {7:20} And Moses and Aaron did so, as Yehovah commanded; and he

lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the

sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters

that were in the river were turned to blood. {7:21} And the fish that

were in the river died; and the river became foul, and the Egyptians

could not drink water from the river; and the blood was throughout all

the land of Egypt. {7:22} And the magicians of Egypt did in like manner

with their enchantments: and Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he

heard not unto them; as Yehovah had spoken. {7:23} And Pharaoh

turned and went into his house, neither did he lay even this to heart.

{7:24} And all the Egyptians dug round about the river for water to

drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. {7:25} And

seven days were fulfilled, after that Yehovah had smitten the river.

 

 

O2)8

   {8:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and say unto

him, Thus said Yehovah, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

{8:2} And if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your

borders with frogs: {8:3} and the river shall swarm with frogs, which

shall go up and come into your house, and into your bedchamber, and upon

your bed, and into the house of your servants, and upon your people, and

into your ovens, and into your kneading-troughs: {8:4} and the frogs

shall come up both upon you, and upon your people, and upon all your

servants. {8:5} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch

forth your hand with your rod over the rivers, over the streams, and over

the pools, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt. {8:6} And

Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs

came up, and covered the land of Egypt. {8:7} And the magicians did in

like manner with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land

of Egypt.

 

   {8:8} Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat

Yehovah, that he take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I

will let the people go, that they may sacrifice unto Yehovah. {8:9} And

Moses said unto Pharaoh, Have you this glory over me: against what

time shall I entreat for you, and for your servants, and for your

people, that the frogs be destroyed from you and your houses, and

remain in the river only? {8:10} And he said, Against to-morrow. And he

said, Be it according to your word; that you may know that there is

none like unto Yehovah our God. {8:11} And the frogs shall depart from

you, and from your houses, and from your servants, and from your people;

they shall remain in the river only. {8:12} And Moses and Aaron went

out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto Yehovah concerning the frogs

which he had brought upon Pharaoh. {8:13} And Yehovah did according to

the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the

courts, and out of the fields. {8:14} And they gathered them together

in heaps; and the land stank. {8:15} But when Pharaoh saw that there

was respite, he hardened his heart, and heard not unto them, as

Yehovah had spoken.

 

   {8:16} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out your

rod, and smite the dust of the earth, that is may become lice

throughout all the land of Egypt. {8:17} And they did so; and Aaron

stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth,

and there were lice upon man, and upon beast; all the dust of the earth

became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. {8:18} And the magicians

did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not:

and there were lice upon man, and upon beast. {8:19} Then the magicians

said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh's heart was

hardened, and he heard not unto them; as Yehovah had spoken.

 

   {8:20} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,

and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he comes forth to the water; and say

unto him, Thus said Yehovah, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

{8:21} Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send

swarms of flies upon you, and upon they servants, and upon your people,

and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of

swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are. {8:22} And I

will set apart in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people

dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may

know that I am Yehovah in the midst of the earth. {8:23} And I will put

a division between my people and your people: by to-morrow shall this

sign be. {8:24} And Yehovah did so; and there came grievous swarms of

flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants' houses: and in

all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of

flies.

 

   {8:25} And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go you,

sacrifice to your God in the land. {8:26} And Moses said, It is not

meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians

to Yehovah our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the

Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us? {8:27} We will

go three days' journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to Yehovah

our God, as he shall command us. {8:28} And Pharaoh said, I will let

you go, that you may sacrifice to Yehovah your God in the wilderness;

only you shall not go very far away: entreat for me. {8:29} And Moses

said, Behold, I go out from you, and I will entreat Yehovah that the

swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from

his people, to-morrow: only let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more

in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yehovah. {8:30} And Moses

went out from Pharaoh, and entreated Yehovah. {8:31} And Yehovah did

according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from

Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not

one. {8:32} And Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he did

not let the people go.

 

 

O2)9

   {9:1} Then Yehovah said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell

him, Thus said Yehovah, the God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that

they may serve me. {9:2} For if you refuse to let them go, and will

hold them still, {9:3} behold, the hand of Yehovah is upon your cattle

which are in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the

camels, upon the herds, and upon the flocks: [there shall be] a very

grievous murrain. {9:4} And Yehovah shall make a distinction between

the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt; and there shall nothing

die of all that belongs to the children of Israel. {9:5} And Yehovah

appointed a set time, saying, To-morrow Yehovah shall do this thing in

the land. {9:6} And Yehovah did that thing on the morrow; and all the

cattle of Egypt died; but of the cattle of the children of Israel died

not one. {9:7} And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not so much as

one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. But the heart of Pharaoh was

stubborn, and he did not let the people go.

 

   {9:8} And Yehovah said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you

handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward

heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. {9:9} And it shall become small dust

over all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with

blains upon man and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

{9:10} And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh;

and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking

forth with blains upon man and upon beast. {9:11} And the magicians

could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boils were

upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. {9:12} And Yehovah

hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he heard not unto them, as

Yehovah had spoken unto Moses. {9:13} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Rise

up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him,

Thus said Yehovah, the God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they

may serve me. {9:14} For I will this time send all my plagues upon your

heart, and upon your servants, and upon your people; that you may

know that there is none like me in all the earth. {9:15} For now I had

put forth my hand, and smitten you and your people with pestilence, and

you had been cut off from the earth: {9:16} but in very deed for

this cause have I made you to stand, to show you my power, and that

my name may be declared throughout all the earth. {9:17} As yet

exalts you yourself against my people, that you will not let them

go? {9:18} Behold, to-morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a

very grievous hail, such as has not been in Egypt since the day it was

founded even until now. {9:19} Now therefore send, hurry in your cattle

and all that you have in the field; [for] every man and beast that

shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail

shall come down upon them, and they shall die. {9:20} He that feared

the word of Yehovah among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and

his cattle flee into the houses. {9:21} And he that regarded not the

word of Yehovah left his servants and his cattle in the field.

 

   {9:22} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward

heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and

upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of

Egypt. {9:23} And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and

Yehovah sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down unto the earth; and

Yehovah rained hail upon the land of Egypt. {9:24} So there was hail,

and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as had not been in

all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. {9:25} And the hail

smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both

man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake

every tree of the field. {9:26} Only in the land of Goshen, where the

children of Israel were, was there no hail.

 

   {9:27} And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said

unto them, I have sinned this time: Yehovah is righteous worker, and I and my

people are wicked. {9:28} Entreat Yehovah; for there has been enough

of [these] mighty thundering and hail; and I will let you go, and you

shall stay no longer. {9:29} And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am

gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto Yehovah; the

thunders shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that you

may know that the earth is Yehovah's. {9:30} But as for you and your

servants, I know that you will not yet fear Yehovah God. {9:31} And the

flax and the barley were smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and

the flax was in bloom. {9:32} But the wheat and the spelt were not

smitten: for they were not grown up. {9:33} And Moses went out of the

city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto Yehovah: and the

thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.

{9:34} And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders

were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his

servants. {9:35} And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not

let the children of Israel go, as Yehovah had spoken by Moses.

 

 

O2)10

   {10:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have

hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I may show

these my signs in the midst of them, {10:2} and that you may tell

in the ears of your son, and of your son's son, what things I have

wrought upon Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that you

may know that I am Yehovah. {10:3} And Moses and Aaron went in unto

Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus said Yehovah, the God of the Hebrews,

How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? let my people

go, that they may serve me. {10:4} Else, if you refuse to let my

people go, behold, to-morrow will I bring locusts into your border:

{10:5} and they shall cover the face of the earth, so that one shall

not be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that

which is escaped, which remains unto you from the hail, and shall eat

every tree which grows for you out of the field: {10:6} and your

houses shall be filled, and the houses of all your servants, and the

houses of all the Egyptians; as neither your fathers nor your fathers'

fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto

this day. And he turned, and went out from Pharaoh. {10:7} And

Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare

unto us? let the men go, that they may serve Yehovah their God: know

you not yet that Egypt is destroyed? {10:8} And Moses and Aaron were

brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve Yehovah

your God; but who are they that shall go? {10:9} And Moses said, We

will go with our young and with our old; with our sons and with our

daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must

hold a feast unto Yehovah. {10:10} And he said unto them, So be Yehovah

with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for

evil is before you. {10:11} Not so: go now you that are men, and serve

Yehovah; for that is what you desire. And they were driven out from

Pharaoh's presence.

 

   {10:12} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Stretch out your hand over the

land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of

Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail has

left. {10:13} And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt,

and Yehovah brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all

the night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

{10:14} And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested

in all the borders of Egypt; very grievous were they; before them there

were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such. {10:15}

For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was

darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of

the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green

thing, either tree or herb of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

{10:16} Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said,

I have sinned against Yehovah your God, and against you. {10:17} Now

therefore forgive, I pray you, my sin only this once, and entreat

Yehovah your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

{10:18} And he went out from Pharaoh, and entreated Yehovah. {10:19}

And Yehovah turned an exceeding strong west wind, which took up the

locusts, and drove them into the Red Sea; there remained not one locust

in all the border of Egypt. {10:20} But Yehovah hardened Pharaoh's

heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go.

 

   {10:21} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Stretch out your hand toward

heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even

darkness which may be felt. {10:22} And Moses stretched forth his hand

toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt

three days; {10:23} they saw not one another, neither rose any one from

his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in

their dwellings. {10:24} And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go

you, serve Yehovah; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let

your little ones also go with you. {10:25} And Moses said, you must

also give into our hand sacrifices and burnt-offerings, that we may

sacrifice unto Yehovah our God. {10:26} Our cattle also shall go with

us; there shall not a hoof be left behind: for of it must we take to

serve Yehovah our God; and we know not with what we must serve Yehovah,

until we come there. {10:27} But Yehovah hardened Pharaoh's heart,

and he would not let them go. {10:28} And Pharaoh said unto him, Get

you from me, take heed to yourself, see my face no more; for in the day

you sees my face you shall die. {10:29} And Moses said, you have

spoken well. I will see your face again no more.

 

 

O2)11

   {11:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, yet one plague more will I bring

upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go from here: when

he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out from here altogether.

{11:2} Speak now in the ears of the people, and let them ask every man

of his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver, and

jewels of gold. {11:3} And Yehovah gave the people favor in the sight

of the Egyptians.  Also the man Moses was very great in the land of

Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants, and in the sight of the

people.

 

   {11:4} And Moses said, Thus said Yehovah, About midnight will I go

out into the midst of Egypt: {11:5} and all the first-born in the land

of Egypt shall die, from the first-born of Pharaoh that sits upon

his throne, even unto the first-born of the maid-servant that is behind

the mill; and all the first-born of cattle. {11:6} And there shall be a

great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there has not

been, nor shall be any more. {11:7} But against any of the children of

Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that you

may know how that Yehovah does make a distinction between the Egyptians

and Israel. {11:8} And all these your servants shall come down unto me,

and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get you out, and all the

people that follow you: and after that I will go out. And he went out

from Pharaoh in hot anger.

 

   {11:9} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Pharaoh will not hear unto

you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt. {11:10}

And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and Yehovah

hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the children of Israel go

out of his land.

 

 

O2)12

   {12:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,

saying, {12:2} This moon [of resurrection Abib, determined by vernal equinox] shall be unto you the beginning of moons: it shall be the first moon of the year to you. {12:3} Speak you unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth [day] of this moon [of resurrection] [Abib] they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to their fathers'

houses, a lamb for a household: {12:4} and if the household be too little for a lamb, then shall he and his neighbor next unto his house take one according to the number of the souls; according to every man's  eating you shall make your count for the lamb. {12:5} Your lamb shall be outside blemish, a male a year old: you shall take it from the sheep, or

from the goats: {12:6} and you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same moon [of resurrection] [Abib]; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it between the evenings. {12:7} And they shall take of the blood, and put it on the two side-posts and on the lintel, upon the houses wherein they shall eat it. {12:8} And they shall eat the flesh in that night,

roast with fire, and unleavened bread; with bitter herbs they shall eat

it. {12:9} Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast

with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards there. {12:10}

And you shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which

remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire. {12:11} And

thus shall you eat it: with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet,

and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is

Yehovah's Passover. {12:12} For I will go through the land of Egypt in

that night, and will smite all the first-born in the land of Egypt,

both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute

judgments: I am Yehovah. {12:13} And the blood shall be to you for a

token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will

pass over you, and there shall no plague be upon you to destroy you,

when I smite the land of Egypt. {12:14} And this day shall be unto you

for a memorial, and you shall keep it a feast to Yehovah: throughout

your generations you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

 

   {12:15} Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day

you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whoever eats

leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul

shall be cut off from Israel. {12:16} And in the first day there shall

be to you a holy convocation, and in the seventh day a holy

convocation; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which

every man must eat, that only may be done by you. {12:17} And you shall

observe the [feast of] unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have

I brought your hosts out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you

observe this day [of Passover] throughout your generations by an ordinance for ever.

{12:18} In the first [moon], on the fourteenth day of the moon {Abib] at

even, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of

the moon at even. {12:19} Seven days shall there be no leaven found in

your houses: for anyone who eats that which is leavened, that soul

shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a

sojourner, or one that is born in the land. {12:20} you shall eat

nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall you eat unleavened bread.

 

   {12:21} Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said

unto them, Draw out, and take you lambs according to your families, and

kill the Passover. {12:22} And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip

it in the blood that is on the threshold, and strike the lintel and the two

side-posts with the blood that is on the threshold; and none of you shall

go out of the door of his house until the morning. {12:23} For Yehovah

will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood

upon the lintel, and on the two side-posts, Yehovah will pass over the

door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to

smite you. {12:24} And you shall observe this thing for an ordinance to

you and to your sons for ever. {12:25} And it shall come to pass, when

you are come to the land which Yehovah will give you, according as he

has promised, that you shall keep this service. {12:26} And it shall

come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean you by

this service? {12:27} that you shall say, It is the sacrifice of

Yehovah's Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of

Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses.

And the people bowed the head and worshipped. {12:28} And the children

of Israel went and did so; as Yehovah had commanded Moses and Aaron, so

did they.

 

   {12:29} And it came to pass at midnight, that Yehovah smote all the

first-born in the land of Egypt, from the first-born of Pharaoh that

sat on his throne unto the first-born of the captive that was in the

dungeon; and all the first-born of cattle. {12:30} And Pharaoh rose up

in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and

there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there

was not one dead. {12:31} And he called for Moses and Aaron by night,

and said, Rise up, get you forth from among my people, both you and the

children of Israel; and go, serve Yehovah, as you have said. {12:32}

Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and

bless me also. {12:33} And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people,

to send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We are all dead

men. {12:34} And the people took their dough before it was leavened,

their kneading-troughs being bound up in their clothes upon their

shoulders. {12:35} And the children of Israel did according to the word

of Moses; and they asked of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels

of gold, and raiment. {12:36} And Yehovah gave the people favor in the

sight of the Egyptians, so that they let them have what they asked. And

they despoiled the Egyptians.

 

   {12:37} And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to

Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, besides

children. {12:38} And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and

flocks, and herds, even very much cattle. {12:39} And they baked

unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt;

for it was not leavened, because they were thrust out of Egypt, and

could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victuals.

{12:40} Now the time that the children of Israel dwelt in Egypt was

four hundred and thirty years. {12:41} And it came to pass at the end

of four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to

pass, that all the hosts of Yehovah went out from the land of Egypt.

{12:42} It is a night to be much observed unto Yehovah for bringing

them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of Yehovah, to be

much observed of all the children of Israel throughout their

generations.

 

   {12:43} And Yehovah said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance

of the Passover: there shall no foreigner eat there; {12:44} but

every man's servant that is bought for money, when you have

circumcised him, then shall he eat there. {12:45} A sojourner and a

hired servant shall not eat there. {12:46} In one house shall it be

eaten; you shall not carry forth anything of the flesh abroad out of the

house; neither shall you break a bone there. {12:47} All the

congregation of Israel shall keep it. {12:48} And when a stranger shall

sojourn with you, and will keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his

males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he

shall be as one that is born in the land: but no uncircumcised person

shall eat there. {12:49} One law shall be to him that is home-born,

and unto the stranger that sojourns among you. {12:50} Thus did all

the children of Israel; as Yehovah commanded Moses and Aaron, so did

they. {12:51} And it came to pass the selfsame day, that Yehovah did

bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their hosts.

 

 

O2)13

   {13:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {13:2} Sanctify unto me

all the first-born, what so ever opens the womb among the children of

Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.

 

   {13:3} And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which

you came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of

hand Yehovah brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened

bread be eaten. {13:4} This day you go forth in the moon Abib. {13:5}

And it shall be, when Yehovah shall bring you into the land of the

Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Amorite, and the Hivite, and the

Jebusite, which he swore unto your fathers to give you, a land flowing

with milk and honey, that you shall keep this service in this moon.

{13:6} Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh

day shall be a feast to Yehovah. {13:7} Unleavened bread shall be eaten

throughout the seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen

with you, neither shall there be leaven seen with you, in all your

borders. {13:8} And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, It is

because of that which Yehovah did for me when I came forth out of

Egypt. {13:9} And it shall be for a sign unto you upon your hand, and

for a memorial between your eyes, that the law of Yehovah may be in

your mouth: for with a strong hand has Yehovah brought you out of

Egypt. {13:10} you shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season

from year to year.

 

   {13:11} And it shall be, when Yehovah shall bring you into the land

of the Canaanite, as he swore unto you and to your fathers, and shall

give it you, {13:12} that you shall set apart unto Yehovah all that

opens the womb, and every firstling which you have that comes of a

beast; the males shall be Yehovah's. {13:13} And every firstling of an

ass you shall redeem with a lamb; and if you will not redeem it, then

you shall break its neck: and all the first-born of man among your sons

shall you redeem. {13:14} And it shall be, when your son asks you in

time to come, saying, What is this? that you shall say unto him, By

strength of hand Yehovah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of

bondage: {13:15} and it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us

go, that Yehovah slew all the first-born in the land of Egypt, both the

first-born of man, and the first-born of beast: therefore I sacrifice

to Yehovah all that opens the womb, being males; but all the

first-born of my sons I redeem. {13:16} And it shall be for a sign upon

your hand, and for frontlets between your eyes: for by strength of hand

Yehovah brought us forth out of Egypt.

 

   {13:17} And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go,

that God led them not by the way of the land of the Philistines,

although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people

repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: {13:18} but God led

the people about, by the way of the wilderness by the Red Sea: and the

children of Israel went up armed out of the land of Egypt. {13:19} And

Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straightly sworn the

children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and you shall

carry up my bones away from here with you. {13:20} And they took their

journey from Succoth, and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the

wilderness. {13:21} And Yehovah went before them by day in a pillar of

cloud, to lead them the way, and by night in a pillar of fire, to give

them light, that they might go by day and by night: {13:22} the pillar

of cloud by day, and the pillar of fire by night, departed not from

before the people.

 

 

O2)14

   {14:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {14:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, that they turn back and encamp before Pihahiroth,

between Migdol and the sea, before Baal-zephon: over against it shall

you encamp by the sea. {14:3} And Pharaoh will say of the children of

Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness has shut them

in. {14:4} And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he shall follow after

them; and I will get me honor upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host: and

the Egyptians shall know that I am Yehovah. And they did so. {14:5} And

it was told the king of Egypt that the people were fled: and the heart

of Pharaoh and of his servants was changed towards the people, and they

said, What is this we have done, that we have let Israel go from

serving us? {14:6} And he made ready his chariot, and took his people

with him: {14:7} and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the

chariots of Egypt, and captains over all of them. {14:8} And Yehovah

hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the

children of Israel: for the children of Israel went out with a high

hand. {14:9} And the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses [and]

chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them

encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baal-zephon.

 

   {14:10} And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted up

their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians were marching after them; and

they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto

Yehovah. {14:11} And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves

in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore

have you dealt thus with us, to bring us forth out of Egypt? {14:12}

Is not this the word that we spoke unto you in Egypt, saying, Let us

alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it were better for us to

serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness. {14:13}

And Moses said unto the people, Fear you not, stand still, and see the

salvation of Yehovah, which he will work for you to-day: for the

Egyptians whom you have seen to-day, you shall see them again no more for

ever. {14:14} Yehovah will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.

 

   {14:15} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Wherefore cry you unto me?

speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward. {14:16} And

lift you up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide

it: and the children of Israel shall go into the midst of the sea on

dry ground. {14:17} And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the

Egyptians, and they shall go in after them: and I will get me honor

upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his

horsemen. {14:18} And the Egyptians shall know that I am Yehovah, when

I have gotten me honor upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his

horsemen. {14:19} And the messenger of God, who went before the camp of

Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud removed

from before them, and stood behind them: {14:20} and it came between

the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel; and there was the cloud and

the darkness, yet gave it light by night: and the one came not near the

other all the night.

 

   {14:21} And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Yehovah

caused the sea to go [back] by a strong east wind all the night, and

made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided. {14:22} And the

children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground:

and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their

left. {14:23} And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them into

the midst of the sea, all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots, and his

horsemen. {14:24} And it came to pass in the morning watch, that

Yehovah looked forth upon the host of the Egyptians through the pillar

of fire and of cloud, and discomfited the host of the Egyptians.

{14:25} And he took off their chariot wheels, and they drove them

heavily; so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of

Israel; for Yehovah fights for them against the Egyptians.

 

   {14:26} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Stretch out your hand over the

sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their

chariots, and upon their horsemen. {14:27} And Moses stretched forth

his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to its strength when the

morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and Yehovah

overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. {14:28} And the waters

returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, even all the host

of Pharaoh that went in after them into the sea; there remained not so

much as one of them. {14:29} But the children of Israel walked upon dry

land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on

their right hand, and on their left. {14:30} Thus Yehovah saved Israel

that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians

dead upon the sea-shore. {14:31} And Israel saw the great work which

Yehovah did upon the Egyptians, and the people feared Yehovah: and they

believed in Yehovah, and in his servant Moses.

 

 

O2)15

   {15:1} Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto

Yehovah, and spoke, saying,

I will sing unto Yehovah, for he has triumphed gloriously:

The horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.

{15:2} Yehovah is my strength and song,

And he is become my salvation:

This is my God, and I will praise him;

My father's God, and I will exalt him.

{15:3} Yehovah is a man of war:

Yehovah is his name.

{15:4} Pharaoh's chariots and his host has he cast into the sea;

And his chosen captains are sunk in the Red Sea.

{15:5} The deeps cover them:

They went down into the depths like a stone.

{15:6} Your right hand, O Yehovah, is glorious in power,

Your right hand, O Yehovah, dashes in pieces the enemy.

{15:7} And in the greatness of your Excellency you overthrows them

      that rise up against you: you sends forth your wrath, it

      consumes them as stubble.

{15:8} And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were piled up,

The floods stood upright as a heap;

The deeps were congealed in the heart of the sea.

{15:9} The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide

      the spoil;

My desire shall be satisfied upon them;

I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

{15:10} you did blow with your wind, the sea covered them:

They sank as lead in the mighty waters.

{15:11} Who is like unto you, O Yehovah, among the gods?

Who is like you, glorious in holiness,

Fearful in praises, doing wonders?

{15:12} you stretched out your right hand,

The earth swallowed them.

{15:13} you in your loving kindness have led the people that you have

      redeemed:

you have guided them in your strength to your holy habitation.

{15:14} The peoples have heard, they tremble:

Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.

{15:15} Then were the chiefs of Edom dismayed;

The mighty men of Moab, trembling takes hold upon them:

All the inhabitants of Canaan are melted away.

{15:16} Terror and dread falls upon them;

By the greatness of your arm they are as still as a stone;

Till your people pass over, O Yehovah,

Till the people pass over that you have purchased.

{15:17} you will bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of

      your inheritance,

The place, O Yehovah, which you have made for you to dwell in,

The sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.

{15:18} Yehovah shall reign for ever and ever.

 

   {15:19} For the horses of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with

his horsemen into the sea, and Yehovah brought back the waters of the

sea upon them; but the children of Israel walked on dry land in the

midst of the sea. {15:20} And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of

Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her

with timbrels and with dances. {15:21} And Miriam answered them,

Sing you to Yehovah, for he has triumphed gloriously;

The horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.

 

   {15:22} And Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went

out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the

wilderness, and found no water. {15:23} And when they came to Marah,

they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter:

therefore the name of it was called Marah. {15:24} And the people

murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? {15:25} An he

cried unto Yehovah; And Yehovah showed him a tree, and he cast it into

the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made for them a

statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them; {15:26} and he

said, If you will diligently hear to the voice of Yehovah your God,

and will do that which is right in his eyes, and will give ear to his

commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the

diseases upon you, which I have put upon the Egyptians: for I am

Yehovah that heals you. {15:27} And they came to Elim, where were

twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees: and they

encamped there by the waters.

 

 

O2)16

   {16:1} And they took their journey from Elim, and all the

congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin,

which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second

moon after their departing out of the land of Egypt. {16:2} And the

whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and

against Aaron in the wilderness: {16:3} and the children of Israel said

unto them, Would that we had died by the hand of Yehovah in the land of

Egypt, when we sat by the flesh-pots, when we did eat bread to the

full; for you have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this

whole assembly with hunger.

 

   {16:4} Then said Yehovah unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from

heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion

every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or

not. {16:5} And it shall come to pass on the sixth day, that they shall

prepare that which they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they

gather daily. {16:6} And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of

Israel, At even, then you shall know that Yehovah has brought you out

from the land of Egypt; {16:7} and in the morning, then you shall see

the glory of Yehovah; for that he hears your murmurings against

Yehovah: and what are we, that you murmur against us? {16:8} And Moses

said, [This shall be], when Yehovah shall give you in the evening flesh

to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that Yehovah hears

your murmurings which you murmur against him: and what are we? your

murmurings are not against us, but against Yehovah. {16:9} And Moses

said unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of the children of

Israel, Come near before Yehovah; for he has heard your murmurings.

{16:10} And it came to pass, as Aaron spoke unto the whole congregation

of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and,

behold, the glory of Yehovah appeared in the cloud. {16:11} And Yehovah

spoke unto Moses, saying, {16:12} I have heard the murmurings of the

children of Israel: speak unto them, saying, At even you shall eat

flesh, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread: and you shall

know that I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {16:13} And it came to pass at even, that the quails came up, and

covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the camp.

{16:14} And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of

the wilderness a small round thing, small as the hoar-frost on the

ground. {16:15} And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one

to another, What is it? For they knew not what it was. And Moses said

unto them, It is the bread which Yehovah has given you to eat. {16:16}

This is the thing which Yehovah has commanded, Gather you of it every

man according to his eating; an omer a head, according to the number of

your persons, shall you take it, every man for them that are in his

tent. {16:17} And the children of Israel did so, and gathered some

more, some less. {16:18} And when they measured it with an omer, he

that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no

lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. {16:19} And

Moses said unto them, Let no man leave of it till the morning. {16:20}

Notwithstanding they heard not unto Moses; but some of them left of

it until the morning, and it bred worms, and became foul: and Moses was

wroth with them. {16:21} And they gathered it morning by morning, every

man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.

{16:22} And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice

as much bread, two omers for each one: and all the rulers of the

congregation came and told Moses. {16:23} And he said unto them, This

is that which Yehovah has spoken, Tomorrow is a solemn rest, a holy

Sabbath unto Yehovah: bake that which you will bake, and boil that which

you will boil; and all that remains over lay up for you to be kept

until the morning. {16:24} And they laid it up till the morning, as

Moses bade: and it did not become foul, neither was there any worm

therein. {16:25} And Moses said, Eat that to-day; for to-day is a

Sabbath unto Yehovah: to-day you shall not find it in the field. {16:26}

Six days you shall gather it; but on the seventh day is the Sabbath, in

it there shall be none. {16:27} And it came to pass on the seventh day,

that there went out some of the people to gather, and they found none.

{16:28} And Yehovah said unto Moses, How long refuse you to keep my

commandments and my laws? {16:29} See, for that Yehovah has given you

the Sabbath, therefore he gives you on the sixth day the bread of two

days; abide you every man in his place, let no man go out of his place

on the seventh day. {16:30} So the people rested on the seventh day.

 

   {16:31} And the house of Israel called the name of it Manna: and

it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers

[made] with honey. {16:32} And Moses said, This is the thing which

Yehovah has commanded, Let an omer full of it be kept throughout your

generations, that they may see the bread wherewith I fed you in the

wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt. {16:33}

And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna

therein, and lay it up before Yehovah, to be kept throughout your

generations. {16:34} As Yehovah commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up

before the Testimony, to be kept. {16:35} And the children of Israel

did eat the manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited;

they did eat the manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of

Canaan. {16:36} Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.

 

 

O2)17

   {17:1} And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed

from the wilderness of Sin, by their journeys, according to the

commandment of Yehovah, and encamped in Rephidim: and there was no

water for the people to drink. {17:2} Wherefore the people strove with

Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto

them, Why strive you with me? Wherefore do you tempt Yehovah? {17:3} And

the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against

Moses, and said, Wherefore have you brought us up out of Egypt, to

kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst? {17:4} And Moses

cried unto Yehovah, saying, What shall I do unto this people? They are

almost ready to stone me. {17:5} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Pass on

before the people, and take with you of the elders of Israel; and your

rod, where there you smote the river, take in your hand, and go. {17:6}

Behold, I will stand before you there upon the rock in Horeb; and you

shall smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the

people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of

Israel. {17:7} And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah,

because of the striving of the children of Israel, and because they

tempted Yehovah, saying, Is Yehovah among us, or not?

 

   {17:8} Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. {17:9}

And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with

Amalek: to-morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of

God in my hand. {17:10} So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and

fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the

hill. {17:11} And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that

Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

{17:12} But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it

under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands,

the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; And his hands

were steady until the going down of the sun. {17:13} And Joshua

discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. {17:14}

And Yehovah said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and

rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: that I will utterly blot out the

remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. {17:15} And Moses built an

altar, and called the name of it Yehovah-nissi; {17:16} And he said,

Yehovah has sworn: Yehovah will have war with Amalek from generation

to generation.

 

 

O2)18

   {18:1} Now Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, heard

of all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, how that

Yehovah had brought Israel out of Egypt. {18:2} And Jethro, Moses'

father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her away,

{18:3} and her two sons; of whom the name of the one was Gershom; for

he said, I have been a sojourner in a foreign land: {18:4} and the name

of the other was Eliezer; for [he said], The God of my father was my

help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh. {18:5} And Jethro,

Moses' father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife unto Moses into

the wilderness where he was encamped, at the mount of God: {18:6} and

he said unto Moses, I, your father-in-law Jethro, am come unto you, and

your wife, and her two sons with her. {18:7} And Moses went out to meet

his father-in-law, and did obeisance, and kissed him: and they asked

each other of their welfare; and they came into the tent. {18:8} And

Moses told his father-in-law all that Yehovah had done unto Pharaoh and

to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, all the travail that had come upon

them by the way, and how Yehovah delivered them. {18:9} And Jethro

rejoiced for all the goodness which Yehovah had done to Israel, in that

he had delivered them out of the hand of the Egyptians. {18:10} And

Jethro said, Blessed be Yehovah, who has delivered you out of the hand

of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh; who has delivered

the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. {18:11} Now I know

that Yehovah is greater than all gods; behold, in the thing wherein they

dealt proudly against them. {18:12} And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law,

took a burnt-offering and sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all

the elders of Israel, to eat bread with Moses' father-in-law before God.

 

   {18:13} And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge

the people: and the people stood about Moses from the morning unto the

evening. {18:14} And when Moses' father-in-law saw all that he did to

the people, he said, What is this thing that you do to the people?

why sits you yourself alone, and all the people stand about you

from morning unto even? {18:15} And Moses said unto his father-in-law,

Because the people come unto me to inquire of God: {18:16} when they

have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between a man and his

neighbor, and I make them know the statutes of God, and his laws.

{18:17} And Moses' father-in-law said unto him, The thing that you

do is not good. {18:18} you will surely wear away, both you, and

this people that is with you: for the thing is too heavy for you;

you are not able to perform it yourself alone. {18:19} Hear now unto

my voice, I will give you counsel, and God be with you: be you for

the people to God-ward, and bring you the causes unto God: {18:20} and

you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and shall show them

the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do. {18:21}

Also you shall provide out of all the people able men, such as

fear God, men of truth, hating unjust gain; and place such over them,

to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and

rulers of tens: {18:22} and let them judge the people at all seasons:

and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto you,

but every small matter they shall judge themselves: so shall it be

easier for yourself, and they shall bear [the burden] with you. {18:23}

If you shall do this thing, and God command you so, then you shall

be able to endure, and all this people also shall go to their place in

peace. {18:24} So Moses heard the voice of his father-in-law,

and did all that he had said. {18:25} And Moses chose able men out of

all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands,

rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. {18:26} And

they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought

unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves. {18:27} And

Moses let his father-in-law depart; and he went his way into his own

land.

 

 

O2)19

   {19:1} In the third moon after the children of Israel were gone

forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the

wilderness of Sinai. {19:2} And when they were departed from Rephidim,

and were come to the wilderness of Sinai, they encamped in the

wilderness; and there Israel encamped before the mount. {19:3} And

Moses went up unto God, and Yehovah called unto him out of the

mountain, saying, Thus shall you say to the house of Jacob, and tell

the children of Israel: {19:4} you have seen what I did unto the

Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto

myself. {19:5} Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep

my covenant, then you shall be mine own possession from among all

peoples: for all the earth is mine: {19:6} and you shall be unto me a

kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which you

shall speak unto the children of Israel.

 

   {19:7} And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and

set before them all these words which Yehovah commanded him. {19:8} And

all the people answered together, and said, All that Yehovah has

spoken we will do. And Moses reported the words of the people unto

Yehovah. {19:9} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto you in a

thick cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with you, and may

also believe you for ever. And Moses told the words of the people unto

Yehovah. {19:10} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and

sanctify them to-day and to-morrow, and let them wash their garments,

{19:11} and be ready against the third day; for the third day Yehovah

will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. {19:12}

And you shall set bounds unto the people round about, saying, Take

heed to yourselves, that you go not up into the mount, or touch the

border of it: anyone that touches the mount shall be surely put to

death: {19:13} no hand shall touch him, but he shall surely be stoned,

or shot through; whether it be beast or man, he shall not live: when

the trumpet sounds long, they shall come up to the mount. {19:14} And

Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the

people; and they washed their garments. {19:15} And he said unto the

people, Be ready against the third day: come not near a woman.

 

   {19:16} And it came to pass on the third day, when it was morning,

that there were thunder and lightning, and a thick cloud upon the

mount, and the voice of a trumpet exceeding loud; and all the people

that were in the camp trembled. {19:17} And Moses brought forth the

people out of the camp to meet God; and they stood at the nether part

of the mount. {19:18} And mount Sinai, the whole of it, smoked, because

Yehovah descended upon it in fire; and the smoke of it ascended as

the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. {19:19} And

when the voice of the trumpet waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and

God answered him by a voice. {19:20} And Yehovah came down upon mount

Sinai, to the top of the mount: and Yehovah called Moses to the top of

the mount; and Moses went up. {19:21} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Go

down, charge the people, lest they break through unto Yehovah to gaze,

and many of them perish. {19:22} And let the priests also, that come

near to Yehovah, sanctify themselves, lest Yehovah break forth upon

them. {19:23} And Moses said unto Yehovah, The people cannot come up to

mount Sinai: for you did charge us, saying, Set bounds about the

mount, and sanctify it. {19:24} And Yehovah said unto him, Go, get you

down; and you shall come up, you, and Aaron with you: but let not

the priests and the people break through to come up unto Yehovah, lest

he break forth upon them. {19:25} So Moses went down unto the people,

and told them.

 

 

02)20

   {20:1} And God spoke all these words, saying, {20:2} I am Yehovah

your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of

bondage. {20:3} you shall have no other gods before me.

 

   {20:4} you shall not make unto you a graven image, nor any

likeness [of any thing] that is in heaven above, or that is in the

earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. {20:5} you

shall not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them, for I Yehovah your

God am a jealous God, visiting the works without law of the fathers upon the

children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that

hate me, {20:6} and showing loving kindness unto thousands of them that

love me and keep my commandments.

 

   {20:7} you shall not take the name of Yehovah your God in vain; for

Yehovah will not hold him guiltless that takes his name in vain.

 

   {20:8} Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. {20:9} Six days

shall you labor, and do all your work; {20:10} but the seventh day is a

Sabbath unto Yehovah your God: [in it] you shall not do any work, you,

nor your son, nor your daughter, your man-servant, nor your maid-servant,

nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates: {20:11} for

in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in

them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the

Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

   {20:12} Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long

in the land which Yehovah your God gives you.

 

   {20:13} you shall not kill.

 

   {20:14} you shall not commit adultery.

 

   {20:15} you shall not steal.

 

   {20:16} you shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

 

   {20:17} you shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not

covet your neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant,

nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbor's.

 

   {20:18} And all the people perceived the thundering, and the

lightning, and the voice of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and

when the people saw it, they trembled, and stood afar off. {20:19} And

they said unto Moses, Speak you with us, and we will hear; but let not

God speak with us, lest we die. {20:20} And Moses said unto the people,

Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before

you, that you sin not. {20:21} And the people stood afar off, and Moses

drew near unto the thick darkness where God was.

 

   {20:22} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Thus you shall say unto the

children of Israel, you yourselves have seen that I have talked with you

from heaven. {20:23} you shall not make [other gods] with me; gods of

silver, or gods of gold, you shall not make unto you. {20:24} An altar

of earth you shall make unto me, and shall sacrifice thereon your

burnt-offerings, and your peace-offerings, your sheep, and your oxen: in

every place where I record my name I will come unto you and I will

bless you. {20:25} And if you make me an altar of stone, you shall

not build it of hewn stones; for if you lift up your tool upon it, you

have polluted it. {20:26} Neither shall you go up by steps unto mine

altar, that your nakedness be not uncovered thereon.

 

 

O2)21

   {21:1} Now these are the ordinances which you shall set before them.

 

   {21:2} If you buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and

in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. {21:3} If he come in

by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he be married, then his wife

shall go out with him. {21:4} If his master give him a wife and she

bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her

master's, and he shall go out by himself. {21:5} But if the servant

shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will

not go out free: {21:6} then his master shall bring him unto God, and

shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post; and his master

shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever.

 

   {21:7} And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she

shall not go out as the men-servants do. {21:8} If she please not her

master, who has espoused her to himself, then shall he let her be

redeemed: to sell her unto a foreign people he shall have no power,

seeing he has dealt deceitfully with her. {21:9} And if he espouse her

unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.

{21:10} If he take him another [wife]; her food, her raiment, and her

duty of marriage, shall he not diminish. {21:11} And if he do not these

three things unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, outside money.

 

   {21:12} He that smites a man, so that he dies, shall surely be put

to death. {21:13} And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver [him]

into his hand; then I will appoint you a place where he shall flee.

{21:14} And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him

with guile; you shall take him from mine altar, that he may die.

 

   {21:15} And he that smites his father, or his mother, shall be

surely put to death.

 

   {21:16} And he that steals man, and sells him, or if he be

found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

 

   {21:17} And he that curses his father or his mother, shall surely

be put to death.

 

   {21:18} And if men contend, and one smite the other with a stone, or

with his fist, and he die not, but keep his bed; {21:19} if he rise

again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be

quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him

to be thoroughly healed.

 

   {21:20} And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and

he die under his hand; he shall surely be punished. {21:21}

Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished:

for he is his money.

 

   {21:22} And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so

that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow; he shall be surely

fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he

shall pay as the judges determine. {21:23} But if any harm follow, then

you shall give life for life, {21:24} eye for eye, tooth for tooth,

hand for hand, foot for foot, {21:25} burning for burning, wound for

wound, stripe for stripe.

 

   {21:26} And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his

maid, and destroy it; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.

{21:27} And if he smite out his man-servant's tooth, or his

maid-servant's tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.

 

   {21:28} And if an ox gore a man or a woman to death, the ox shall be

surely stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the

ox shall be quit. {21:29} But if the ox was wont to gore in time past,

and it has been testified to its owner, and he has not kept it in,

but it has killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its

owner also shall be put to death. {21:30} If there be laid on him a

ransom, then he shall give for the redemption of his life what so ever is

laid upon him. {21:31} Whether it have gored a son, or have gored a

daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him. {21:32}

If the ox gore a man-servant or a maid-servant, there shall be given

unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.

 

   {21:33} And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit

and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein, {21:34} the owner

of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money unto the owner

there, and the dead [beast] shall be his.

 

   {21:35} And if one man's ox hurt another's, so that it dies, then

they shall sell the live ox, and divide the price of it: and the dead

also they shall divide. {21:36} Or if it be known that the ox was wont

to gore in time past, and its owner has not kept it in, he shall

surely pay ox for ox, and the dead [beast] shall be his own.

 

 

O2)22

   {22:1} If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell

it; he shall pay five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.

{22:2} If the thief be found breaking in, and be smitten so that he

dies, there shall be no blood guiltiness for him. {22:3} If the sun be

risen upon him, there shall be blood guiltiness for him; he shall make

restitution: if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.

{22:4} If the theft be found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or

ass, or sheep, he shall pay double.

 

   {22:5} If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and

shall let his beast loose, and it feed in another man's field; of the

best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he

make restitution.

 

   {22:6} If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the shocks of

grain, or the standing grain, or the field are consumed; he that

kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.

 

   {22:7} If a man shall deliver unto his neighbor money or stuff to

keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found,

he shall pay double. {22:8} If the thief be not found, then the master

of the house shall come near unto God, [to see] whether he have not put

his hand unto his neighbor's goods. {22:9} For every matter of

trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, [or]

for any manner of lost thing, where one said, This is it, the cause

of both parties shall come before God; he whom God shall condemn shall

pay double unto his neighbor.

 

   {22:10} If a man deliver unto his neighbor an ass, or an ox, or a

sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away,

no man seeing it: {22:11} the oath of Yehovah shall be between them

both, whether he has not put his hand unto his neighbor's goods; and

the owner of it shall accept it, and he shall not make restitution.

{22:12} But if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto

the owner there. {22:13} If it be torn in pieces, let him bring it

for witness: he shall not make good that which was torn.

 

   {22:14} And if a man borrow anything of his neighbor, and it be hurt,

or die, the owner of it not being with it, he shall surely make

restitution. {22:15} If the owner of it be with it, he shall not make

it good: if it be a hired thing, it came for its hire.

 

   {22:16} And if a man entice a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie

with her, he shall surely pay a dowry for her to be his wife. {22:17}

If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money

according to the dowry of virgins.

 

   {22:18} you shall not suffer a sorceress to live.

 

   {22:19} Anyone  who lies with a beast shall surely be put to death.

 

   {22:20} He that sacrifices unto any god, save unto Yehovah only,

shall be utterly destroyed. {22:21} And a sojourner shall you not

wrong, neither shall you oppress him: for you were sojourners in the

land of Egypt. {22:22} you shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless

child. {22:23} If you afflict them at all, and they cry at all unto

me, I will surely hear their cry; {22:24} and my wrath shall wax hot,

and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and

your children fatherless.

 

   {22:25} If you lend money to any of my people with you that is

poor, you shall not be to him as a creditor; neither shall you lay upon

him interest. {22:26} If you at all take your neighbor's garment to

pledge, you shall restore it unto him before the sun goes down:

{22:27} for that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin:

wherein shall he sleep? And it shall come to pass, when he cries unto

me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

 

   {22:28} you shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.

{22:29} you shall not delay to offer of your harvest, and of the

outflow of your presses. The first-born of your sons shall you give unto

me. {22:30} Likewise shall you do with your oxen, [and] with your

sheep: seven days it shall be with its dam; on the eighth day you

shall give it me. {22:31} And you shall be holy men unto me: therefore

you shall not eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you

shall cast it to the dogs.

 

 

O2)23

   {23:1} you shall not take up a false report: put not your hand with

the wicked to be an worker  against law a working witness. {23:2} you shall not follow a

multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to turn aside

after a multitude to withhold [justice]: {23:3} neither shall you favor a

poor man in his cause.

 

   {23:4} If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you

shall surely bring it back to him again. {23:5} If you see the ass of

him that hates you lying under his burden, you shall forbear to

leave him, you shall surely release [it] with him.

 

   {23:6} you shall not withhold the justice [due] to your poor in his

cause. {23:7} Keep you far from a false matter; and the innocent and

the lawful worker slay you not: for I will not make sinless the wicked. {23:8} And

you shall take no bribe: for a bribe blinds them that have sight,

and perverts the words of the lawful worker. {23:9} And a sojourner shall

you not oppress: for you know the heart of a sojourner, seeing you were

sojourners in the land of Egypt.

 

   {23:10} And six years you shall sow your land, and shall gather in

the increase there: {23:11} but the seventh year you shall let it

rest and lie fallow; that the poor of your people may eat: and what they

leave the beast of the field shall eat. In like manner you shall deal

with your vineyard, [and] with your olive yard. {23:12} Six days you

shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; that your

ox and your ass may have rest, and the son of your handmaid, and the

sojourner, may be refreshed. {23:13} And in all things that I have said

unto you take you heed: and make no mention of the name of other gods,

neither let it be heard out of your mouth.

 

   {23:14} Three times you shall keep a feast unto me in the year.

{23:15} The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep: seven days you

shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed

in the moon Abib (for in it you came out from Egypt); and none

shall appear before me empty: {23:16} and the feast of harvest, the

first-fruits of your labors, which you sows in the field: and the

feast of ingathering, at the end of the year, when you gathers in

your labors out of the field. {23:17} Three times in the year all your

males shall appear before the Lord Yehovah.

 

   {23:18} you shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened

bread; neither shall the fat of my feast remain all night until the

morning. {23:19} The first of the first-fruits of your ground you shall

bring into the house of Yehovah your God. you shall not boil a kid in

its mother's milk.

 

   {23:20} Behold, I send an messenger before you, to keep you by the

way, and to bring you into the place which I have prepared. {23:21}

Take you heed before him, and hear unto his voice; provoke him not;

for he will not pardon your transgression of the law: for my name is in him.

{23:22} But if you shall indeed hear unto his voice, and do all

that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto your enemies, and an

adversary unto your adversaries. {23:23} For mine messenger shall go

before you, and bring you in unto the Amorite, and the Hittite, and

the Perizzite, and the Canaanite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: and I

will cut them off. {23:24} you shall not bow down to their gods, nor

serve them, nor do after their works; but you shall utterly overthrow

them, and break in pieces their pillars. {23:25} And you shall serve

Yehovah your God, and he will bless your bread, and your water; and I

will take sickness away from the midst of you. {23:26} There shall

none cast her young, nor be barren, in your land: the number of your days

I will fulfill. {23:27} I will send my terror before you, and will

discomfit all the people to whom you shall come, and I will make all

your enemies turn their backs unto you. {23:28} And I will send the

hornet before you, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite,

and the Hittite, from before you. {23:29} I will not drive them out

from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate, and the

beasts of the field multiply against you. {23:30} By little and little

I will drive them out from before you, until you be increased, and

inherit the land. {23:31} And I will set your border from the Red Sea

even unto the sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness unto the

River: for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand:

and you shall drive them out before you. {23:32} you shall make no

covenant with them, nor with their gods. {23:33} They shall not dwell

in your land, lest they make you sin against me; for if you serve

their gods, it will surely be a snare unto you.

 

 

O2)24

   {24:1} And he said unto Moses, Come up unto Yehovah, you, and

Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and

worship you afar off: {24:2} and Moses alone shall come near unto

Yehovah; but they shall not come near; neither shall the people go up

with him. {24:3} And Moses came and told the people all the words of

Yehovah, and all the ordinances: and all the people answered with one

voice, and said, All the words which Yehovah has spoken will we do.

{24:4} And Moses wrote all the words of Yehovah, and rose up early in

the morning, and built an altar under the mount, and twelve pillars,

according to the twelve tribes of Israel. {24:5} And he sent young men

of the children of Israel, who offered burnt-offerings, and sacrificed

peace-offerings of oxen unto Yehovah. {24:6} And Moses took half of the

blood, and put it in basins; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the

altar. {24:7} And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the

audience of the people: and they said, All that Yehovah has spoken

will we do, and be obedient. {24:8} And Moses took the blood, and

sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant,

which Yehovah has made with you concerning all these words.

 

   {24:9} Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy

of the elders of Israel. {24:10} And they saw the God of Israel; and

there was under his feet as it were a paved work of sapphire stone, and

as it were the very heaven for clearness. {24:11} And upon the nobles

of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: and they beheld God,

and did eat and drink.

 

   {24:12} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount,

and be there: and I will give you the tables of stone, and the law and

the commandment, which I have written, that you may teach them.

{24:13} And Moses rose up, and Joshua his minister: and Moses went up

into the mount of God. {24:14} And he said unto the elders, Tarry you

here for us, until we come again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur

are with you: anyone who has a cause, let him come near unto them.

{24:15} And Moses went up into the mount, and the cloud covered the

mount. {24:16} And the glory of Yehovah abode upon mount Sinai, and the

cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out

of the midst of the cloud. {24:17} And the appearance of the glory of

Yehovah was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of

the children of Israel. {24:18} And Moses entered into the midst of the

cloud, and went up into the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty

days and forty nights.

 

 

O2)25

   {25:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {25:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, that they take for me an offering: of every man

whose heart makes him willing you shall take my offering. {25:3} And

this is the offering which you shall take of them: gold, and silver, and

brass, {25:4} and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and

goats' [hair], {25:5} and rams' skins dyed red, and sealskins, and

acacia wood, {25:6} oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil,

and for the sweet incense, {25:7} onyx stones, and stones to be set,

for the ephod, and for the breastplate. {25:8} And let them make me a

sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. {25:9} According to all that I

show you, the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the

furniture there, even so shall you make it.

 

   {25:10} And they shall make an ark of acacia wood: two cubits and a

half shall be the length there, and a cubit and a half the breadth

there, and a cubit and a half the height there. {25:11} And you

shall overlay it with pure gold, within and outside shall you overlay

it, and shall make upon it a crown of gold round about. {25:12} And

you shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four

feet there; and two rings shall be on the one side of it, and two

rings on the other side of it. {25:13} And you shall make staves of

acacia wood, and overlay them with gold. {25:14} And you shall put the

staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, wherewith to bear the

ark. {25:15} The staves shall be in the rings of the ark: they shall

not be taken from it. {25:16} And you shall put into the ark the

testimony which I shall give you. {25:17} And you shall make a

mercy-seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half [shall be] the length

there, and a cubit and a half the breadth there. {25:18} And you

shall make two cherubim of gold; of beaten work shall you make them,

at the two ends of the mercy-seat. {25:19} And make one cherub at the

one end, and one cherub at the other end: of one piece with the

mercy-seat shall you make the cherubim on the two ends there. {25:20}

And the cherubim shall spread out their wings on high, covering the

mercy-seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward

the mercy-seat shall the faces of the cherubim be. {25:21} And you

shall put the mercy-seat above upon the ark; and in the ark you shall

put the testimony that I shall give you. {25:22} And there I will meet

with you, and I will commune with you from above the mercy-seat, from

between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of

all things which I will give you in commandment unto the children of

Israel.

 

   {25:23} And you shall make a table of acacia wood: two cubits

[shall be] the length there, and a cubit the breadth there, and a

cubit and a half the height there. {25:24} And you shall overlay it

with pure gold, and make thereto a crown of gold round about. {25:25}

And you shall make unto it a border of a handbreadth round about; and

you shall make a golden crown to the border of it round about.

{25:26} And you shall make for it four rings of gold, and put the

rings in the four corners that are on the four feet there. {25:27}

Close by the border shall the rings be, for places for the staves to

bear the table. {25:28} And you shall make the staves of acacia wood,

and overlay them with gold, that the table may be borne with them.

{25:29} And you shall make the dishes there, and the spoons there,

and the flagons there, and the bowls there, wherewith to pour out:

of pure gold shall you make them. {25:30} And you shall set upon the

table showbread before me always.

 

   {25:31} And you shall make a candlestick of pure gold: of beaten

work shall the candlestick be made, even its base, and its shaft; its

cups, its knops, and its flowers, shall be of one piece with it.

{25:32} And there shall be six branches going out of the sides there;

three branches of the candlestick out of the one side there, and

three branches of the candlestick out of the other side there:

{25:33} three cups made like almond-blossoms in one branch, a knop and

a flower; and three cups made like almond-blossoms in the other branch,

a knop and a flower: so for the six branches going out of the

candlestick: {25:34} and in the candlestick four cups made like

almond-blossoms, the knops there, and the flowers there; {25:35}

and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under

two branches of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one

piece with it, for the six branches going out of the candlestick.

{25:36} Their knops and their branches shall be of one piece with it;

the whole of it one beaten work of pure gold. {25:37} And you shall

make the lamps there, seven: and they shall light the lamps there,

to give light over against it. {25:38} And the snuffers there, and

the snuff dishes there, shall be of pure gold. {25:39} Of a talent of

pure gold shall it be made, with all these vessels. {25:40} And see

that you make them after their pattern, which has been showed you in

the mount.

 

 

O2)26

   {26:1} Also you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains; of

fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim the

work of the skilful workman shall you make them. {26:2} The length of

each curtain shall be eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of each

curtain four cubits: all the curtains shall have one measure. {26:3}

Five curtains shall be coupled together one to another; and [the other]

five curtains shall be coupled one to another. {26:4} And you shall

make loops of blue upon the edge of the one curtain from the selvedge

in the coupling; and likewise shall you make in the edge of the

curtain that is outmost in the second coupling. {26:5} Fifty loops

shall you make in the one curtain, and fifty loops shall you make in

the edge of the curtain that is in the coupling; the loops shall

be opposite one to another. {26:6} And you shall make fifty clasps of

gold, and couple the curtains one to another with the clasps: and the

tabernacle shall be one [whole].

 

   {26:7} And you shall make curtains of goats' [hair] for a tent over

the tabernacle: eleven curtains shall you make them. {26:8} The length

of each curtain shall be thirty cubits, and the breadth of each curtain

four cubits: the eleven curtains shall have one measure. {26:9} And

you shall couple five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by

themselves, and shall double over the sixth curtain in the forefront of

the tent. {26:10} And you shall make fifty loops on the edge of the

one curtain that is outmost in the coupling, and fifty loops upon the

edge of the curtain which is [outmost in] the second coupling. {26:11}

And you shall make fifty clasps of brass, and put the clasps into the

loops, and couple the tent together, that it may be one. {26:12} And

the overhanging part that remains of the curtains of the tent, the

half curtain that remains, shall hang over the back of the

tabernacle. {26:13} And the cubit on the one side, and the cubit on the

other side, of that which remains in the length of the curtains of

the tent, shall hang over the sides of the tabernacle on this side and

on that side, to cover it. {26:14} And you shall make a covering for

the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering of sealskins above.

 

   {26:15} And you shall make the boards for the tabernacle of acacia

wood, standing up. {26:16} Ten cubits shall be the length of a board,

and a cubit and a half the breadth of each board. {26:17} Two tenons

shall there be in each board, joined one to another: thus shall you

make for all the boards of the tabernacle. {26:18} And you shall make

the boards for the tabernacle, twenty boards for the south side

southward. {26:19} And you shall make forty sockets of silver under

the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for its two tenons, and

two sockets under another board for its two tenons. {26:20} And for the

second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, twenty boards,

{26:21} and their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board,

and two sockets under another board. {26:22} And for the hinder part of

the tabernacle westward you shall make six boards. {26:23} And two

boards shall you make for the corners of the tabernacle in the hinder

part. {26:24} And they shall be double beneath, and in like manner they

shall be entire unto the top of it unto one ring: thus shall it be

for them both; they shall be for the two corners. {26:25} And there

shall be eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets;

two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

 

   {26:26} And you shall make bars of acacia wood: five for the boards

of the one side of the tabernacle, {26:27} and five bars for the boards

of the other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of

the side of the tabernacle, for the hinder part westward. {26:28} And

the middle bar in the midst of the boards shall pass through from end

to end. {26:29} And you shall overlay the boards with gold, and make

their rings of gold for places for the bars: and you shall overlay the

bars with gold. {26:30} And you shall rear up the tabernacle according

to the fashion of it which has been showed you in the mount.

 

   {26:31} And you shall make a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet,

and fine twined linen: with cherubim the work of the skilful workman

shall it be made. {26:32} And you shall hang it upon four pillars of

acacia overlaid with gold; their hooks [shall be] of gold, upon four

sockets of silver. {26:33} And you shall hang up the veil under the

clasps, and shall bring in there within the veil the ark of the

testimony: and the veil shall separate unto you between the holy place

and the most holy. {26:34} And you shall put the mercy-seat upon the

ark of the testimony in the most holy place. {26:35} And you shall set

the table outside the veil, and the candlestick over against the table

on the side of the tabernacle toward the south: and you shall put the

table on the north side.

 

   {26:36} And you shall make a screen for the door of the Tent, of

blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the

embroiderer. {26:37} And you shall make for the screen five pillars of

acacia, and overlay them with gold: their hooks shall be of gold: and

you shall cast five sockets of brass for them.

 

 

O2)27

   {27:1} And you shall make the altar of acacia wood, five cubits

long, and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare: and the

height of it shall be three cubits. {27:2} And you shall make the

horns of it upon the four corners there; the horns of it shall be

of one piece with it: and you shall overlay it with brass. {27:3} And

you shall make its pots to take away its ashes, and its shovels, and

its basins, and its flesh-hooks, and its fire pans: all the vessels

of it you shall make of brass. {27:4} And you shall make for it a

grating of network of brass: and upon the net shall you make four

brazen rings in the four corners there. {27:5} And you shall put it

under the ledge round the altar beneath, that the net may reach halfway

up the altar. {27:6} And you shall make staves for the altar, staves

of acacia wood, and overlay them with brass. {27:7} And the staves

of it shall be put into the rings, and the staves shall be upon the

two sides of the altar, in bearing it. {27:8} Hollow with planks shall

you make it: as it has been showed you in the mount, so shall they

make it.

 

   {27:9} And you shall make the court of the tabernacle: for the

south side southward there shall be hangings for the court of fine

twined linen a hundred cubits long for one side: {27:10} and the

pillars of it shall be twenty, and their sockets twenty, of brass;

the hooks of the pillars and their fillets [shall be] of silver.

{27:11} And likewise for the north side in length there shall be

every where, and the height five cubits, of fine twined linen, and

their sockets of brass. {27:19} All the instruments of the tabernacle

in all the service there, and all the pins there, and all the pins

of the court, shall be of brass.

 

   {27:20} And you shall command the children of Israel, that they

bring unto you pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to

burn continually. {27:21} In the tent of meeting, outside the veil

which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall keep it in

order from evening to morning before Yehovah: it shall be a statue for

ever throughout their generations on the behalf of the children of

Israel.

 

 

O2)28

   {28:1} And bring you near unto you Aaron your brother, and his sons

with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto

me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and

Ithamar, Aaron's sons. {28:2} And you shall make holy garments for

Aaron your brother, for glory and for beauty. {28:3} And you shall

speak unto all that are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the

spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron's garments to sanctify him, that

he may minister unto me in the priest's office. {28:4} And these are

the garments which they shall make: a breastplate, and an ephod, and a

robe, and a coat of checker work, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall

make holy garments for Aaron your brother, and his sons, that he may

minister unto me in the priest's office. {28:5} And they shall take the

gold, and the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the fine linen.

 

   {28:6} And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and purple,

scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the skilful workman. {28:7}

It shall have two shoulder-pieces joined to the two ends there, that

it may be joined together. {28:8} And the skillfully woven band, which

is upon it, wherewith to gird it on, shall be like the work there

[and] of the same piece; of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and

fine twined linen. {28:9} And you shall take two onyx stones, and

grave on them the names of the children of Israel: {28:10} six of their

names on the one stone, and the names of the six that remain on the

other stone, according to their birth. {28:11} With the work of an

engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shall you engrave

the two stones, according to the names of the children of Israel: you

shall make them to be enclosed in settings of gold. {28:12} And you

shall put the two stones upon the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be

stones of memorial for the children of Israel: and Aaron shall bear

their names before Yehovah upon his two shoulders for a memorial.

{28:13} And you shall make settings of gold, {28:14} and two chains of

pure gold; like cords shall you make them, of wreathen work: and you

shall put the wreathen chains on the settings.

 

   {28:15} And you shall make a breastplate of judgment, the work of

the skilful workman; like the work of the ephod you shall make it; of

gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, shall

you make it. {28:16} Foursquare it shall be [and] double; a span shall

be the length there, and a span the breadth there. {28:17} And you

shall set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones: a row of

sardius, topaz, and carbuncle shall be the first row; {28:18} and the

second row an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond; {28:19} and the third

row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; {28:20} and the fourth row a

beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper: they shall be enclosed in gold in

their settings. {28:21} And the stones shall be according to the names

of the children of Israel, twelve, according to their names; like the

engravings of a signet, every one according to his name, they shall be

for the twelve tribes. {28:22} And you shall make upon the breastplate

chains like cords, of wreathen work of pure gold. {28:23} And you

shall make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shall put the

two rings on the two ends of the breastplate. {28:24} And you shall

put the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings at the ends of the

breastplate. {28:25} And the [other] two ends of the two wreathen

chains you shall put on the two settings, and put them on the

shoulder-pieces of the ephod in the forepart there. {28:26} And you

shall make two rings of gold, and you shall put them upon the two ends

of the breastplate, upon the edge there, which is toward the side of

the ephod inward. {28:27} And you shall make two rings of gold, and

shall put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in

the forepart there, close by the coupling there, above the

skillfully woven band of the ephod. {28:28} And they shall bind the

breastplate by the rings of it unto the rings of the ephod with a

lace of blue, that it may be upon the skillfully woven band of the

ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod. {28:29}

And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the

breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goes in unto the holy

place, for a memorial before Yehovah continually. {28:30} And you

shall put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and

they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goes in before Yehovah: and

Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart

before Yehovah continually.

 

   {28:31} And you shall make the robe of the ephod all of blue.

{28:32} And it shall have a hole for the head in the midst there: it

shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it

were the hole of a coat of mail, that it be not rent. {28:33} And upon

the skirts of it you shall make pomegranates of blue, and of purple,

and of scarlet, round about the skirts there; and bells of gold

between them round about: {28:34} a golden bell and a pomegranate, a

golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about.

{28:35} And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and the sound there

shall be heard when he goes in unto the holy place before Yehovah, and

when he comes out, that he die not.

 

   {28:36} And you shall make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it,

like the engravings of a signet, HOLY TO YEHOVAH. {28:37} And you

shall put it on a lace of blue, and it shall be upon the mitre; upon

the forefront of the mitre it shall be. {28:38} And it shall be upon

Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall bear the works without law of the holy things,

which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts; and

it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before

Yehovah. {28:39} And you shall weave the coat in checker work of fine

linen, and you shall make a mitre of fine linen, and you shall make a

girdle, the work of the embroiderer.

 

   {28:40} And for Aaron's sons you shall make coats, and you shall

make for them girdles, and head-tires shall you make for them, for

glory and for beauty. {28:41} And you shall put them upon Aaron your

brother, and upon his sons with him, and shall anoint them, and

consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in

the priest's office. {28:42} And you shall make them linen breeches to

cover the flesh of their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs

they shall reach: {28:43} And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his

sons, when they go in unto the tent of meeting, or when they come near

unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not

works without law, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and unto his

seed after him.

 

 

O2)29

   {29:1} And this is the thing that you shall do unto them to hallow

them, to minister unto me in the priest's office: take one young

bullock and two rams outside blemish, {29:2} and unleavened bread, and

cakes unleavened mingled with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with

oil: of fine wheaten flour shall you make them. {29:3} And you shall

put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the

bullock and the two rams. {29:4} And Aaron and his sons you shall

bring unto the door of the tent of meeting, and shall wash them with

water. {29:5} And you shall take the garments, and put upon Aaron the

coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate,

and gird him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod; {29:6} and

you shall set the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the

mitre. {29:7} Then shall you take the anointing oil, and pour it upon

his head, and anoint him. {29:8} And you shall bring his sons, and put

coats upon them. {29:9} And you shall gird them with girdles, Aaron

and his sons, and bind head-tires on them: and they shall have the

priesthood by a perpetual statute: and you shall consecrate Aaron and

his sons.

 

   {29:10} And you shall bring the bullock before the tent of meeting:

and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the

bullock. {29:11} And you shall kill the bullock before Yehovah, at the

door of the tent of meeting. {29:12} And you shall take of the blood

of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with your finger;

and you shall pour out all the blood at the base of the altar. {29:13}

And you shall take all the fat that covers the inwards, and the caul

upon the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and

burn them upon the altar. {29:14} But the flesh of the bullock, and its

skin, and it dung, shall you burn with fire outside the camp: it is a

sin-offering.

 

   {29:15} you shall also take the one ram; and Aaron and his sons

shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram. {29:16} And you shall

slay the ram, and you shall take its blood, and sprinkle it round

about upon the altar. {29:17} And you shall cut the ram into its

pieces, and wash its inwards, and its legs, and put them with its

pieces, and with its head. {29:18} And you shall burn the whole ram

upon the altar: it is a burnt-offering unto Yehovah; it is a sweet

savor, an offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

 

   {29:19} And you shall take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons

shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram. {29:20} Then shall you

kill the ram, and take of its blood, and put it upon the tip of the

right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and

upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their

right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about. {29:21}

And you shall take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the

anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and

upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and he shall

be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments

with him. {29:22} Also you shall take of the ram the fat, and the fat

tail, and the fat that covers the inwards, and the caul of the liver,

and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right thigh

(for it is a ram of consecration), {29:23} and one loaf of bread, and

one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, out of the basket of unleavened

bread that is before Yehovah. {29:24} And you shall put the whole upon

the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons, and shall wave them

for a wave-offering before Yehovah. {29:25} And you shall take them

from their hands, and burn them on the altar upon the burnt-offering,

for a sweet savor before Yehovah: it is an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah.

 

   {29:26} And you shall take the breast of Aaron's ram of

consecration, and wave it for a wave-offering before Yehovah: and it

shall be your portion. {29:27} And you shall sanctify the breast of the

wave-offering, and the thigh of the heave-offering, which is waved, and

which is heaved up, of the ram of consecration, even of that which is

for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons: {29:28} and it shall be

for Aaron and his sons as [their] portion for ever from the children of

Israel; for it is a heave-offering: and it shall be a heave-offering

from the children of Israel of the sacrifices of their peace-offerings,

even their heave-offering unto Yehovah.

 

   {29:29} And the holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after

him, to be anointed in them, and to be consecrated in them. {29:30}

Seven days shall the son that is priest in his stead put them on, when

he comes into the tent of meeting to minister in the holy place.

 

   {29:31} And you shall take the ram of consecration, and boil its

flesh in a holy place. {29:32} And Aaron and his sons shall eat the

flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, at the door of

the tent of meeting. {29:33} And they shall eat those things wherewith

atonement was made, to consecrate [and] to sanctify them: but a

stranger shall not eat there, because they are holy. {29:34} And if

anything of the flesh of the consecration, or of the bread, remain unto

the morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire: it shall not

be eaten, because it is holy.

 

   {29:35} And thus shall you do unto Aaron, and to his sons,

according to all that I have commanded you: seven days shall you

consecrate them. {29:36} And every day shall you offer the bullock of

sin-offering for atonement: and you shall cleanse the altar, when you

make atonement for it; and you shall anoint it, to sanctify it.

{29:37} Seven days you shall make atonement for the altar, and

sanctify it: and the altar shall be most holy; what so ever touches the

altar shall be holy.

 

   {29:38} Now this is that which you shall offer upon the altar: two

lambs a year old day by day continually. {29:39} The one lamb you

shall offer in the morning; and the other lamb you shall offer at

even: {29:40} and with the one lamb a tenth part [of an ephah] of fine

flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil, and the

fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink-offering. {29:41} And the

other lamb you shall offer at even, and shall do thereto according to

the meal-offering of the morning, and according to the drink-offering

there, for a sweet savor, an offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

{29:42} It shall be a continual burnt-offering throughout your

generations at the door of the tent of meeting before Yehovah, where I

will meet with you, to speak there unto you. {29:43} And there I will

meet with the children of Israel; and [the Tent] shall be sanctified by

my glory. {29:44} And I will sanctify the tent of meeting, and the

altar: Aaron also and his sons will I sanctify, to minister to me in

the priest's office. {29:45} And I will dwell among the children of

Israel, and will be their God. {29:46} And they shall know that I am

Yehovah their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt,

that I might dwell among them: I am Yehovah their God.

 

 

O2)30

   {30:1} And you shall make an altar to burn incense upon: of acacia

wood shall you make it. {30:2} A cubit shall be the length there,

and a cubit the breadth there; foursquare shall it be; and two cubits

shall be the height there: the horns of it shall be of one piece

with it. {30:3} And you shall overlay it with pure gold, the top

there, and the sides of it round about, and the horns there; and

you shall make unto it a crown of gold round about. {30:4} And two

golden rings shall you make for it under the crown there; upon the

two ribs there, upon the two sides of it shall you make them; and

they shall be for places for staves wherewith to bear it. {30:5} And

you shall make the staves of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold.

{30:6} And you shall put it before the veil that is by the ark of the

testimony, before the mercy-seat that is over the testimony, where I

will meet with you. {30:7} And Aaron shall burn thereon incense of

sweet spices: every morning, when he dresses the lamps, he shall burn

it. {30:8} And when Aaron lights the lamps at even, he shall burn it,

a perpetual incense before Yehovah throughout your generations. {30:9}

you shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt-offering, nor

meal-offering; and you shall pour no drink-offering thereon. {30:10} And

Aaron shall make atonement upon the horns of it once in the year; with

the blood of the sin-offering of atonement once in the year shall he

make atonement for it throughout your generations: it is most holy unto

Yehovah.

 

   {30:11} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {30:12} When you

take the sum of the children of Israel, according to those that are

numbered of them, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul

unto Yehovah, when you number them; that there be no plague among

them, when you number them. {30:13} This they shall give, every one

that pass over unto them that are numbered, half a shekel after the

shekel of the sanctuary; (the shekel is twenty gerahs;) half a shekel

for an offering to Yehovah. {30:14} Every one that passes over unto

them that are numbered, from twenty years old and upward, shall give

the offering of Yehovah. {30:15} The rich shall not give more, and the

poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when they give the

offering of Yehovah, to make atonement for your souls. {30:16} And you

shall take the atonement money from the children of Israel, and shall

appoint it for the service of the tent of meeting; that it may be a

memorial for the children of Israel before Yehovah, to make atonement

for your souls.

 

   {30:17} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {30:18} you shall

also make a laver of brass, and the base of it of brass, whereat to

wash. And you shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar,

and you shall put water therein. {30:19} And Aaron and his sons shall

wash their hands and their feet thereat: {30:20} when they go into the

tent of meeting, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when

they come near to the altar to minister, to burn an offering made by

fire unto Yehovah. {30:21} So they shall wash their hands and their

feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them,

even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

 

   {30:22} Again Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {30:23} Take you

also unto you the chief spices: of flowing myrrh five hundred

[shekels], and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and

fifty, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty, {30:24} and of

cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive

oil a hin. {30:25} And you shall make it a holy anointing oil, a

perfume compounded after the are of the perfumer: it shall be a holy

anointing oil. {30:26} And you shall anoint with the tent of

meeting, and the ark of the testimony, {30:27} and the table and all

the vessels there, and the candlestick and the vessels there, and

the altar of incense, {30:28} and the altar of burnt-offering with all

the vessels there, and the laver and the base there. {30:29} And

you shall sanctify them, that they may be most holy: what so ever

touches them shall be holy. {30:30} And you shall anoint Aaron and

his sons, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the

priest's office. {30:31} And you shall speak unto the children of

Israel, saying, This shall be a holy anointing oil unto me throughout

your generations. {30:32} Upon the flesh of man shall it not be poured,

neither shall you make any like it, according to the composition

there: it is holy, [and] it shall be holy unto you. {30:33} Anyone that

compounds any like it, or anyone who puts any of it upon a

stranger, he shall be cut off from his people.

 

   {30:34} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Take unto you sweet spices,

stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; sweet spices with pure frankincense:

of each shall there be a like weight; {30:35} and you shall make of it

incense, a perfume after the are of the perfumer, seasoned with salt,

pure [and] holy: {30:36} and you shall beat some of it very small, and

put of it before the testimony in the tent of meeting, where I will

meet with you: it shall be unto you most holy. {30:37} And the incense

which you shall make, according to the composition of it you shall

not make for yourselves: it shall be unto you holy for Yehovah.

{30:38}  Anyone who ever shall make like unto that [a different incense],

 to smell there, he shall be cut off from his people.

 

 

O2)31

   {31:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {31:2} See, I have

called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of

Judah: {31:3} and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom,

and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of

workmanship, {31:4} to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in

silver, and in brass, {31:5} and in cutting of stones for setting, and

in carving of wood, to work in all manner of workmanship. {31:6} And I,

behold, I have appointed with him Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the

tribe of Dan; and in the heart of all that are wise-hearted I have put

wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded you: {31:7} the

tent of meeting, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy-seat that

is thereupon, and all the furniture of the Tent, {31:8} and the table

and its vessels, and the pure candlestick with all its vessels, and the

altar of incense, {31:9} and the altar of burnt-offering with all its

vessels, and the laver and its base, {31:10} and the finely wrought

garments, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments

of his sons, to minister in the priest's office, {31:11} and the

anointing oil, and the incense of sweet spices for the holy place:

according to all that I have commanded you shall they do.

 

   {31:12} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {31:13} Speak you

also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily you shall keep my

Sabbaths: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your

generations; that you may know that I am Yehovah who sanctifies you.

{31:14} you shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you:

every one that profanes it shall surely be put to death; for anyone who does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his

people. {31:15} Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is

a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to Yehovah: anyone who does any work on

the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. {31:16} Wherefore the

children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath

throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. {31:17} It is a

sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days

Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and

was refreshed.

 

   {31:18} And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing

with him upon mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of

stone, written with the finger of God.

 

 

O2)32

   {32:1} And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from

the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said

unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this

Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not

what is become of him. {32:2} And Aaron said unto them, Break off the

golden rings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of

your daughters, and bring them unto me. {32:3} And all the people brake

off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto

Aaron. {32:4} And he received it at their hand, and fashioned it with a

graving tool, and made it a molten calf: and they said, These are your

gods, O Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt. {32:5}

And when Aaron saw [this], he built an altar before it; and Aaron made

proclamation, and said, To-morrow shall be a feast to Yehovah. {32:6}

And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt-offerings, and

brought peace-offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink,

and rose up to play.

 

   {32:7} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, Go, get you down; for your

people, that you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have

corrupted themselves: {32:8} they have turned aside quickly out of the

way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have

worshipped it, and have sacrificed unto it, and said, These are your

gods, O Israel, which brought you up out of the land of Egypt. {32:9}

And Yehovah said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it

is a stiff-necked people: {32:10} now therefore let me alone, that my

wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will

make of you a great nation. {32:11} And Moses beg Yehovah his

God, and said, Yehovah, why does your wrath wax hot against your people,

that you have brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power

and with a mighty hand? {32:12} Wherefore should the Egyptians speak,

saying, For evil did he bring them forth, to slay them in the

mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from

your fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against your people. {32:13}

Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swears

by your own self, and said unto them, I will multiply your seed as

the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I

give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. {32:14} And

Yehovah repented of the evil which he said he would do unto his people.

 

   {32:15} And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, with the two

tables of the testimony in his hand; tables that were written on both

their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

{32:16} And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the

writing of God, graven upon the tables. {32:17} And when Joshua heard

the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a

noise of war in the camp. {32:18} And he said, It is not the voice of

them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry

for being overcome; but the noise of them that sing do I hear. {32:19}

And it came to pass, as soon as he came near unto the camp, that he saw

the calf and the dancing: and Moses' anger waxed hot, and he cast the

tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount. {32:20} And

he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it with fire, and

ground it to powder, and strewed it upon the water, and made the

children of Israel drink of it.

 

   {32:21} And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto you,

that you have brought a great sin upon them? {32:22} And Aaron said,

Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: you know the people, that

they are [set] on evil. {32:23} For they said unto me, make us gods,

which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought

us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

{32:24} And I said unto them, Anyone who has any gold, let them break

it off: so they gave it me; and I cast it into the fire, and there came

out this calf.

 

   {32:25} And when Moses saw that the people were broken loose, (for

Aaron had let them loose for a derision among their enemies,) {32:26}

then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who so is on

Yehovah's side, [let him come] unto me. And all the sons of Levi

gathered themselves together unto him. {32:27} And he said unto them,

Thus said Yehovah, the God of Israel, Put you every man his sword upon

his thigh, and go to and fro from gate to gate throughout the camp, and

slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man

his neighbor. {32:28} And the sons of Levi did according to the word of

Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

{32:29} And Moses said, Consecrate yourselves to-day to Yehovah, behold,

every man against his son, and against his brother; that he may bestow

upon you a blessing this day.

 

   {32:30} And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the

people, you have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto Yehovah;

peradventure I shall make atonement for your sin. {32:31} And Moses

returned unto Yehovah, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great

sin, and have made them gods of gold. {32:32} yet now, if you will

forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray you, out of your book

which you have written. {32:33} And Yehovah said unto Moses, anyone who

has sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. {32:34} And now

go, lead the people unto [the place] of which I have spoken unto you:

behold, mine messenger shall go before you; nevertheless in the day when I

visit, I will visit their sin upon them. {32:35} And Yehovah smote the

people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

 

 

O2)33

   {33:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, Depart, go up from here, you and

the people that you have brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the

land of which I swear unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying,

Unto your seed will I give it: {33:2} and I will send an messenger before

you; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite,

and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: {33:3} unto a land

flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of you,

for you are a stiff-necked people, lest I consume you in the way.

{33:4} And when the people heard these evil tidings, they grieveed: and

no man did put on him his ornaments. {33:5} And Yehovah said unto

Moses, Say unto the children of Israel, you are a stiff-necked people; if

I go up into the midst of you for one moment, I shall consume you:

therefore now put off your ornaments from you, that I may know what to

do unto you. {33:6} And the children of Israel stripped themselves of

their ornaments from mount Horeb onward.

 

   {33:7} Now Moses used to take the tent and to pitch it outside the

camp, afar off from the camp; and he called it, The tent of meeting.

And it came to pass, that every one that sought Yehovah went out unto

the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp. {33:8} And it came to

pass, when Moses went out unto the Tent, that all the people rose up,

and stood, every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he

was gone into the Tent. {33:9} And it came to pass, when Moses entered

into the Tent, the pillar of cloud descended, and stood at the door of

the Tent: and [Yehovah] spoke with Moses. {33:10} And all the people

saw the pillar of cloud stand at the door of the Tent: and all the

people rose up and worshipped, every man at his tent door. {33:11} And

Yehovah spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man speaks unto his

friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his minister Joshua, the

son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the Tent.

 

   {33:12} And Moses said unto Yehovah, See, you say unto me, Bring

up this people: and you have not let me know whom you will send with

me. yet you have said, I know you by name, and you have also found

favor in my sight. {33:13} Now therefore, I pray you, if I have found

favor in your sight, show me now your ways, that I may know you, to the

end that I may find favor in your sight: and consider that this nation

is your people. {33:14} And he said, My presence shall go [with you],

and I will give you rest. {33:15} And he said unto him, If your

presence go not [with me], carry us not up from here. {33:16} For wherein

now shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your

people? is it not in that you go with us, so that we are separated,

I and your people, from all the people that are upon the face of the

earth?

 

   {33:17} And Yehovah said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that

you have spoken; for you have found favor in my sight, and I know

you by name. {33:18} And he said, Show me, I pray you, your glory.

{33:19} And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before you, and

will proclaim the name of Yehovah before you; and I will be gracious

to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show

mercy. {33:20} And he said, you canst not see my face; for man shall

not see me and live. {33:21} and Yehovah said, Behold, there is a place

by me, and you shall stand upon the rock: {33:22} and it shall come to

pass, while my glory passes by, that I will put you in a cleft of the

rock, and will cover you with my hand until I have passed by: {33:23}

and I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back; but my face

shall not be seen.

 

 

O2)34

   {34:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Hew you two tables of stone

like unto the first: and I will write upon the tables the words that

were on the first tables, which you broke. {34:2} And be ready by

the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present

yourself there to me on the top of the mount. {34:3} And no man shall

come up with you; neither let any man be seen throughout all the

mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount. {34:4}

And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up

early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as Yehovah had

commanded him, and took in his hand two tables of stone. {34:5} And

Yehovah descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and

proclaimed the name of Yehovah. {34:6} And Yehovah passed by before

him, and proclaimed, Yehovah, Yehovah, a God merciful and gracious,

slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth, {34:7} keeping

loving kindness for thousands, forgiving works [made] without law and transgression of the law and sin; and that will by no means clear [the guilty], visiting the

works without law of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's

children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation. {34:8} And

Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

{34:9} And he said, If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, let

the Lord, I pray you, go in the midst of us; for it is a stiff-necked

people; and pardon our works without law and our sin, and take us for your

inheritance.

 

   {34:10} And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all your

people I will do marvels, such as have not been wrought in all the

earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among which you are shall

see the work of Yehovah; for it is a terrible thing that I do with

you. {34:11} Observe you that which I command you this day: behold,

I drive out before you the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the

Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. {34:12}

Take heed to yourself, lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of

the land where you go, lest it be for a snare in the midst of

you: {34:13} but you shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces

their pillars, and you shall cut down their groves; {34:14} for you

shall worship no other god: for Yehovah, whose name is Jealous, is a

jealous God: {34:15} lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of

the land, and they play the whore after their gods, and sacrifices unto

their gods, and one call you and you eat of his sacrifice; {34:16}

and you take of their daughters unto your sons, and their daughters

play the whore after their gods, and make your sons play the whore

after their gods. {34:17} you shall make you no molten gods.

 

   {34:18} The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep. Seven days

you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time

appointed in the moon Abib; for in the moon Abib you came out from

Egypt. {34:19} All that opens the womb is mine; and all your cattle

that is male, the firstlings of cow and sheep. {34:20} And the

firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you will not

redeem it, then you shall break its neck. All the first-born of your

sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before me empty.

 

   {34:21} Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall

rest: in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest. {34:22} And you

shall observe the feast of solar sevens, [even] of the first-fruits of wheat

harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end. {34:23} Three

times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord Yehovah,

the God of Israel. {34:24} For I will cast out nations before you, and

enlarge your borders: neither shall any man desire your land, when you

go up to appear before Yehovah your God three times in the year.

 

   {34:25} you shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened

bread; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the Passover be left

unto the morning. {34:26} The first of the first-fruits of your ground

you shall bring unto the house of Yehovah your God. you shall not boil

a kid in its mother's milk. {34:27} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Write

you these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a

covenant with you and with Israel. {34:28} And he was there with

Yehovah forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor

drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant,

the ten commandments.

 

   {34:29} And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai

with the two tables of the testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down

from the mount, that Moses knew not that the skin of his face shone by

reason of his speaking with him. {34:30} And when Aaron and all the

children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and

they were afraid to come near him. {34:31} And Moses called unto them;

and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and

Moses spoke to them. {34:32} And afterward all the children of Israel

came near: and he gave them in commandment all that Yehovah had spoken

with him in mount Sinai. {34:33} And when Moses had done speaking with

them, he put a veil on his face. {34:34} But when Moses went in before

Yehovah to speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and

he came out, and spoke unto the children of Israel that which he was

commanded. {34:35} And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses,

that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the veil upon his

face again, until he went in to speak with him.

 

 

O2)35

   {35:1} And Moses assembled all the congregation of the children of

Israel, and said unto them, These are the words which Yehovah has

commanded, that you should do them. {35:2} Six days shall work be done;

but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a Sabbath of

solemn rest to Yehovah: anyone who does any work therein shall be put

to death. {35:3} you shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations

upon the Sabbath day.

 

   {35:4} And Moses spoke unto all the congregation of the children of

Israel, saying, This is the thing which Yehovah commanded, saying,

{35:5} Take you from among you an offering unto Yehovah; anyone who is of

a willing heart, let him bring it, Yehovah's offering: gold, and

silver, and brass, {35:6} and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine

linen, and goats' [hair], {35:7} and rams' skins dyed red, and

sealskins, and acacia wood, {35:8} and oil for the light, and spices

for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense, {35:9} and onyx

stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

 

   {35:10} And let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all

that Yehovah has commanded: {35:11} the tabernacle, its tent, and its

covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its

sockets; {35:12} the ark, and the staves there, the mercy-seat, and

the veil of the screen; {35:13} the table, and its staves, and all its

vessels, and the showbread; {35:14} the candlestick also for the light,

and its vessels, and its lamps, and the oil for the light; {35:15} and

the altar of incense, and its staves, and the anointing oil, and the

sweet incense, and the screen for the door, at the door of the

tabernacle; {35:16} the altar of burnt-offering, with its grating of

brass, it staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base; {35:17}

the hangings of the court, the pillars there, and their sockets, and

the screen for the gate of the court; {35:18} the pins of the

tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords; {35:19} the

finely wrought garments, for ministering in the holy place, the holy

garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to

minister in the priest's office.

 

   {35:20} And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed

from the presence of Moses. {35:21} And they came, every one whose

heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, [and]

brought Yehovah's offering, for the work of the tent of meeting, and

for all the service there, and for the holy garments. {35:22} And

they came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, [and]

brought brooches, and ear-rings, and signet-rings, and armlets, all

jewels of gold; even every man that offered an offering of gold unto

Yehovah. {35:23} And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple,

and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' [hair], and rams' skins dyed

red, and sealskins, brought them. {35:24} Every one that did offer an

offering of silver and brass brought Yehovah's offering; and every man,

with whom was found acacia wood for any work of the service, brought

it. {35:25} And all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with

their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the

purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen. {35:26} And all the women

whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats' [hair]. {35:27}

And the rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for

the ephod, and for the breastplate; {35:28} and the spice, and the oil;

for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

{35:29} The children of Israel brought a freewill-offering unto

Yehovah; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring

for all the work, which Yehovah had commanded to be made by Moses.

 

   {35:30} And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, Yehovah

has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the

tribe of Judah. {35:31} And he has filled him with the Spirit of God,

in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of

workmanship; {35:32} and to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and

in silver, and in brass, {35:33} and in cutting of stones for setting,

and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of skilful workmanship.

{35:34} And he has put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and

Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. {35:35} Them has

he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of workmanship, of

the engraver, and of the skilful workman, and of the embroiderer, in

blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver,

even of them that do any workmanship, and of those that devise skilful

works.

 

 

O2)36

   {36:1} And Bezalel and Oholiab shall work, and every wise-hearted

man, in whom Yehovah has put wisdom and understanding to know how to

work all the work for the service of the sanctuary, according to all

that Yehovah has commanded.

 

   {36:2} And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab, and every wise-hearted

man, in whose heart Yehovah had put wisdom, even every one whose heart

stirred him up to come unto the work to do it: {36:3} and they received

of Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for

the work of the service of the sanctuary, wherewith to make it. And

they brought yet unto him freewill-offerings every morning. {36:4} And

all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came

every man from his work which they wrought. {36:5} And they spoke unto

Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service

of the work which Yehovah commanded to make. {36:6} And Moses gave

commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp,

saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering

of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. {36:7}

For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and

too much.

 

   {36:8} And all the wise-hearted men among them that wrought the work

made the tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twined linen, and blue,

and purple, and scarlet, with cherubim, the work of the skilful

workman, [Bezalel] made them. {36:9} The length of each curtain was

eight and twenty cubits, and the breadth of each curtain four cubits:

all the curtains had one measure. {36:10} And he coupled five curtains

one to another: and [the other] five curtains he coupled one to

another. {36:11} And he made loops of blue upon the edge of the one

curtain from the selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the edge

of the curtain that was outmost in the second coupling. {36:12} Fifty

loops made he in the one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the edge

of the curtain that was in the second coupling: the loops were opposite

one to another. {36:13} And he made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled

the curtains one to another with the clasps: so the tabernacle was one.

 

   {36:14} And he made curtains of goats' [hair] for a tent over the

tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them. {36:15} The length of each

curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits the breadth of each curtain:

the eleven curtains had one measure. {36:16} And he coupled five

curtains by themselves, and six curtains by themselves. {36:17} And he

made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was outmost in the

coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain which

was [outmost in] the second coupling. {36:18} And he made fifty clasps

of brass to couple the tent together, that it might be one. {36:19} And

he made a covering for the tent of rams' skins dyed red, and a covering

of sealskins above.

 

   {36:20} And he made the boards for the tabernacle, of acacia wood,

standing up. {36:21} Ten cubits was the length of a board, and a cubit

and a half the breadth of each board. {36:22} Each board had two

tenons, joined one to another: thus did he make for all the boards of

the tabernacle. {36:23} And he made the boards for the tabernacle:

twenty boards for the south side southward. {36:24} And he made forty

sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two sockets under one board

for its two tenons, and two sockets under another board for its two

tenons. {36:25} And for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north

side, he made twenty boards, {36:26} and their forty sockets of silver;

two sockets under one board, and two sockets under another board.

{36:27} And for the hinder part of the tabernacle westward he made six

boards. {36:28} And two boards made he for the corners of the

tabernacle in the hinder part. {36:29} And they were double beneath;

and in like manner they were entire unto the top of it unto one ring:

thus he did to both of them in the two corners. {36:30} And there were

eight boards, and their sockets of silver, sixteen sockets; under every

board two sockets.

 

   {36:31} And he made bars of acacia wood; five for the boards of the

one side of the tabernacle, {36:32} and five bars for the boards of the

other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the

tabernacle for the hinder part westward. {36:33} And he made the middle

bar to pass through in the midst of the boards from the one end to the

other. {36:34} And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their

rings of gold for places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.

 

   {36:35} And he made the veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and

fine twined linen: with cherubim, the work of the skilful workman, made

he it. {36:36} And he made thereunto four pillars of acacia, and

overlaid them with gold: their hooks were of gold; And he cast for them

four sockets of silver. {36:37} And he made a screen for the door of

the Tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, the

work of the embroiderer; {36:38} and the five pillars of it with their

hooks: and he overlaid their capitals and their fillets with gold; and

their five sockets were of brass.

 

 

O2)37

   {37:1} And Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood: two cubits and a

half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it,

and a cubit and a half the height of it: {37:2} and he overlaid it with

pure gold within and outside, and made a crown of gold to it round

about. {37:3} And he cast for it four rings of gold, in the four feet

there; even two rings on the one side of it, and two rings on the

other side of it. {37:4} And he made staves of acacia wood, and

overlaid them with gold. {37:5} And he put the staves into the rings on

the sides of the ark, to bear the ark. {37:6} And he made a mercy-seat

of pure gold: two cubits and a half [was] the length there, and a

cubit and a half the breadth there. {37:7} And he made two cherubim

of gold; of beaten work made he them, at the two ends of the

mercy-seat; {37:8} one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the

other end: of one piece with the mercy-seat made he the cherubim at the

two ends there. {37:9} And the cherubim spread out their wings on

high, covering the mercy-seat with their wings, with their faces one to

another; toward the mercy-seat were the faces of the cherubim.

 

   {37:10} And he made the table of acacia wood: two cubits [was] the

length there, and a cubit the breadth there, and a cubit and a half

the height there: {37:11} and he overlaid it with pure gold, and made

thereto a crown of gold round about. {37:12} And he made unto it a

border of a handbreadth round about, and made a golden crown to the

border of it round about. {37:13} And he cast for it four rings of

gold, and put the rings in the four corners that were on the four feet

there. {37:14} Close by the border were the rings, the places for the

staves to bear the table. {37:15} And he made the staves of acacia

wood, and overlaid them with gold, to bear the table. {37:16} And he

made the vessels which were upon the table, the dishes there, and the

spoons there, and the bowls there, and the flagons there,

wherewith to pour out, of pure gold.

 

   {37:17} And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work

made he the candlestick, even its base, and its shaft; its cups, it

knops, and its flowers, were of one piece with it: {37:18} and there

were six branches going out of the sides there; three branches of the

candlestick out of the one side there, and three branches of the

candlestick out of the other side there: {37:19} three cups made like

almond-blossoms in one branch, a knop and a flower, and three cups made

like almond-blossoms in the other branch, a knop and a flower: so for

the six branches going out of the candlestick. {37:20} And in the

candlestick were four cups made like almond-blossoms, the knops

there, and the flowers there; {37:21} and a knop under two branches

of one piece with it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with

it, and a knop under two branches of one piece with it, for the six

branches going out of it. {37:22} Their knops and their branches were

of one piece with it: the whole of it was one beaten work of pure gold.

{37:23} And he made the lamps there, seven, and the snuffers there,

and the snuff dishes there, of pure gold. {37:24} Of a talent of pure

gold made he it, and all the vessels there.

 

   {37:25} And he made the altar of incense of acacia wood: a cubit was

the length there, and a cubit the breadth there, foursquare; and

two cubits was the height there; the horns of it were of one piece

with it. {37:26} And he overlaid it with pure gold, the top there,

and the sides of it round about, and the horns of it: and he made

unto it a crown of gold round about. {37:27} And he made for it two

golden rings under the crown there, upon the two ribs there, upon

the two sides of it, for places for staves wherewith to bear it.

{37:28} And he made the staves of acacia wood, and overlaid them with

gold. {37:29} And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense

of sweet spices, after the are of the perfumer.

 

 

O2)38

   {38:1} And he made the altar of burnt-offering of acacia wood: five

cubits was the length there, and five cubits the breadth there,

foursquare; and three cubits the height there. {38:2} And he made the

horns of it upon the four corners of it; the horns of it were of

one piece with it: and he overlaid it with brass. {38:3} And he made

all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels, and the

basins, the flesh-hooks, and the fire pans: all the vessels of it made

he of brass. {38:4} And he made for the altar a grating of network of

brass, under the ledge round it beneath, reaching halfway up. {38:5}

And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grating of brass, to be

places for the staves. {38:6} And he made the staves of acacia wood,

and overlaid them with brass. {38:7} And he put the staves into the

rings on the sides of the altar, wherewith to bear it; he made it

hollow with planks.

 

   {38:8} And he made the laver of brass, and the base of it of

brass, of the mirrors of the ministering women that ministered at the

door of the tent of meeting.

 

   {38:9} And he made the court: for the south side southward the

hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, a hundred cubits;

{38:10} their pillars were twenty, and their sockets twenty, of brass;

the hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver. {38:11} And

for the north side a hundred cubits, their pillars twenty, and their

sockets twenty, of brass; the hooks of the pillars, and their fillets,

of silver. {38:12} And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits,

their pillars ten, and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars, and

their fillets, of silver. {38:13} And for the east side eastward fifty

cubits. {38:14} The hangings for the one side [of the gate] were

fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their sockets three; {38:15}

and so for the other side: on this hand and that hand by the gate of

the court were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and

their sockets three. {38:16} All the hangings of the court round about

were of fine twined linen. {38:17} And the sockets for the pillars were

of brass; the hooks of the pillars, and their fillets, of silver; and

the overlaying of their capitals, of silver; and all the pillars of the

court were filleted with silver. {38:18} And the screen for the gate of

the court was the work of the embroiderer, of blue, and purple, and

scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits was the length, and

the height in the breadth was five cubits, answerable to the hangings

of the court. {38:19} And their pillars were four, and their sockets

four, of brass; their hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their

capitals, and their fillets, of silver. {38:20} And all the pins of the

tabernacle, and of the court round about, were of brass.

 

   {38:21} This is the sum of [the things for] the tabernacle, even the

tabernacle of the testimony, as they were counted, according to the

commandment of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of

Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest. {38:22} And Bezalel the son of

Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that Yehovah

commanded Moses. {38:23} And with him was Oholiab, the son of

Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver, and a skilful workman, and

an embroiderer in blue, and in purple, and in scarlet, and in fine

linen.

 

   {38:24} All the gold that was used for the work in all the work of

the sanctuary, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine

talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of the

sanctuary. {38:25} And the silver of them that were numbered of the

congregation was a hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and

threescore and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

{38:26} a beka a head, [that is], half a shekel, after the shekel of

the sanctuary, for every one that passed over to them that were

numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for six hundred thousand

and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men. {38:27} And the

hundred talents of silver were for casting the sockets of the

sanctuary, and the sockets of the veil; a hundred sockets for the

hundred talents, a talent for a socket. {38:28} And of the thousand

seven hundred seventy and five [shekels] he made hooks for the pillars,

and overlaid their capitals, and made fillets for them. {38:29} And the

brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand and four

hundred shekels. {38:30} And with he made the sockets to the door

of the tent of meeting, and the brazen altar, and the brazen grating

for it, and all the vessels of the altar, {38:31} and the sockets of

the court round about, and the sockets of the gate of the court, and

all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the court round

about.

 

 

O2)39

   {39:1} And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made finely

wrought garments, for ministering in the holy place, and made the holy

garments for Aaron; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:2} And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet,

and fine twined linen. {39:3} And they did beat the gold into thin

plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue, and in the

purple, and in the scarlet, and in the fine linen, the work of the

skilful workman. {39:4} They made shoulder-pieces for it, joined

together; at the two ends was it joined together. {39:5} And the

skillfully woven band, that was upon it, wherewith to gird it on, was of

the same piece [and] like the work there; of gold, of blue, and

purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:6} And they wrought the onyx stones, enclosed in settings of

gold, graven with the engravings of a signet, according to the names of

the children of Israel. {39:7} And he put them on the shoulder-pieces

of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the children of Israel; as

Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:8} And he made the breastplate, the work of the skilful workman,

like the work of the ephod; of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet,

and fine twined linen. {39:9} It was foursquare; they made the

breastplate double: a span was the length there, and a span the

breadth there, being double. {39:10} And they set in it four rows of

stones. A row of sardius, topaz, and carbuncle was the first row;

{39:11} and the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond;

{39:12} and the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;

{39:13} and the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jaspar: they were

enclosed in inclosing of gold in their settings. {39:14} And the

stones were according to the names of the children of Israel, twelve,

according to their names; like the engravings of a signet, every one

according to his name, for the twelve tribes. {39:15} And they made

upon the breastplate chains like cords, of wreathen work of pure gold.

{39:16} And they made two settings of gold, and two gold rings, and put

the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate. {39:17} And they put

the two wreathen chains of gold in the two rings at the ends of the

breastplate. {39:18} And the [other] two ends of the two wreathen

chains they put on the two settings, and put them on the

shoulder-pieces of the ephod, in the forepart there. {39:19} And they

made two rings of gold, and put them upon the two ends of the

breastplate, upon the edge there, which was toward the side of the

ephod inward. {39:20} And they made two rings of gold, and put them on

the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in the forepart

there, close by the coupling there, above the skillfully woven band

of the ephod. {39:21} And they did bind the breastplate by the rings

of it unto the rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it might

be upon the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate

might not be loosed from the ephod; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:22} And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of

blue. {39:23} And the hole of the robe in the midst there, as the

hole of a coat of mail, with a binding round about the hole of it, that

it should not be rent. {39:24} And they made upon the skirts of the

robe pomegranates of blue, and purple, and scarlet, [and] twined

[linen]. {39:25} And they made bells of pure gold, and put the bells

between the pomegranates upon the skirts of the robe round about,

between the pomegranates; {39:26} a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and

a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about, to minister in;

as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:27} And they made the coats of fine linen of woven work for

Aaron, and for his sons, {39:28} and the mitre of fine linen, and the

goodly head-tires of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twined

linen, {39:29} and the girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and

purple, and scarlet, the work of the embroiderer; as Yehovah commanded

Moses.

 

   {39:30} And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and

wrote upon it a writing, like the engravings of a signet, HOLY TO

YEHOVAH. {39:31} And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it

upon the mitre above; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {39:32} Thus was finished all the work of the tabernacle of the tent

of meeting: and the children of Israel did according to all that

Yehovah commanded Moses; so did they. {39:33} And they brought the

tabernacle unto Moses, the Tent, and all its furniture, its clasps, its

boards, it bars, and its pillars, and it sockets; {39:34} and the

covering of rams' skins dyed red, and the covering of sealskins, and

the veil of the screen; {39:35} the ark of the testimony, and the

staves there, and the mercy-seat; {39:36} the table, all the vessels

there, and the showbread; {39:37} the pure candlestick, the lamps

there, even the lamps to be set in order, and all the vessels

there, and the oil for the light; {39:38} and the golden altar, and

the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the screen for the door

of the Tent; {39:39} the brazen altar, and its grating of brass, its

staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base; {39:40} the

hangings of the court, its pillars, and its sockets, and the screen for

the gate of the court, the cords there, and the pins there, and all

the instruments of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of

meeting; {39:41} the finely wrought garments for ministering in the

holy place, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the

garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office. {39:42}

According to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so the children of

Israel did all the work. {39:43} And Moses saw all the work, and,

behold, they had done it; as Yehovah had commanded, even so had they

done it: and Moses blessed them.

 

 

O2)40

   {40:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {40:2} On the first day

of the first moon shall you rear up the tabernacle of the tent of

meeting. {40:3} And you shall put therein the ark of the testimony,

and you shall screen the ark with the veil. {40:4} And you shall

bring in the table, and set in order the things that are upon it; and

you shall bring in the candlestick, and light the lamps there.

{40:5} And you shall set the golden altar for incense before the ark

of the testimony, and put the screen of the door to the tabernacle.

{40:6} And you shall set the altar of burnt-offering before the door

of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. {40:7} And you shall set the

laver between the tent of meeting and the altar, and shall put water

therein. {40:8} And you shall set up the court round about, and hang

up the screen of the gate of the court. {40:9} And you shall take the

anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and

shall hallow it, and all the furniture there: and it shall be holy.

{40:10} And you shall anoint the altar of burnt-offering, and all its

vessels, and sanctify the altar: and the altar shall be most holy.

{40:11} And you shall anoint the laver and its base, and sanctify it.

{40:12} And you shall bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the

tent of meeting, and shall wash them with water. {40:13} And you shall

put upon Aaron the holy garments; and you shall anoint him, and

sanctify him, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office.

{40:14} And you shall bring his sons, and put coats upon them; {40:15}

and you shall anoint them, as you did anoint their father, that

they may minister unto me in the priest's office: and their anointing

shall be to them for an everlasting priesthood throughout their

generations. {40:16} Thus did Moses: according to all that Yehovah

commanded him, so did he.

 

   {40:17} And it came to pass in the first moon in the second year,

on the first day of the moon, that the tabernacle was reared up.

{40:18} And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and laid its sockets, and

set up the boards there, and put in the bars there, and reared up

its pillars. {40:19} And he spread the tent over the tabernacle, and

put the covering of the tent above upon it; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

{40:20} And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the

staves on the ark, and put the mercy-seat above upon the ark: {40:21}

and he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of the

screen, and screened the ark of the testimony; as Yehovah commanded

Moses. {40:22} And he put the table in the tent of meeting, upon the

side of the tabernacle northward, outside the veil. {40:23} And he set

the bread in order upon it before Yehovah; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

{40:24} And he put the candlestick in the tent of meeting, over against

the table, on the side of the tabernacle southward. {40:25} And he

lighted the lamps before Yehovah; as Yehovah commanded Moses. {40:26}

And he put the golden altar in the tent of meeting before the veil:

{40:27} and he burnt thereon incense of sweet spices; as Yehovah

commanded Moses. {40:28} And he put the screen of the door to the

tabernacle. {40:29} And he set the altar of burnt-offering at the door

of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered upon it the

burnt-offering and the meal-offering; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

{40:30} And he set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar,

and put water therein, wherewith to wash. {40:31} And Moses and Aaron

and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat; {40:32} when

they went into the tent of meeting, and when they came near unto the

altar, they washed; as Yehovah commanded Moses. {40:33} And he reared

up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the

screen of the gate of the court. So Moses finished the work.

 

   {40:34} Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of

Yehovah filled the tabernacle. {40:35} And Moses was not able to enter

into the tent of meeting, because the cloud abode thereon, and the

glory of Yehovah filled the tabernacle. {40:36} And when the cloud was

taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward,

throughout all their journeys: {40:37} but if the cloud was not taken

up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. {40:38}

For the cloud of Yehovah was upon the tabernacle by day, and there was

fire therein by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel,

throughout all their journeys.

 

 

  o3)1 The Book of Leviticus

 

 

The Third Book of Moses, commonly called Leviticus

 

   {1:1} And Yehovah called unto Moses, and spoke unto him out of the

tent of meeting, saying, {1:2} Speak unto the children of Israel, and

say unto them, When any man of you offers an oblation unto Yehovah,

you shall offer your oblation of the cattle, [even] of the herd and of

the flock.

 

   {1:3} If his oblation be a burnt-offering of the herd, he shall

offer it a male outside blemish: he shall offer it at the door of the

tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before Yehovah. {1:4} And he

shall lay his hand upon the head of the burnt-offering; and it shall be

accepted for him to make atonement for him. {1:5} And he shall kill the

bullock before Yehovah: and Aaron's sons, the priests, shall present

the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is at

the door of the tent of meeting. {1:6} And he shall flay the

burnt-offering, and cut it into its pieces. {1:7} And the sons of Aaron

the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay wood in order upon

the fire; {1:8} and Aaron's sons, the priests, shall lay the pieces,

the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which

is upon the altar: {1:9} but its inwards and its legs shall he wash

with water: and the priest shall burn the whole on the altar, for a

burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

 

   {1:10} And if his oblation be of the flock, of the sheep, or of the

goats, for a burnt-offering; he shall offer it a male outside blemish.

{1:11} And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before

Yehovah: and Aaron's sons, the priests, shall sprinkle its blood upon

the altar round about. {1:12} And he shall cut it into its pieces, with

its head and its fat; and the priest shall lay them in order on the

wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar: {1:13} but the

inwards and the legs shall he wash with water; and the priest shall

offer the whole, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt-offering, an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

 

   {1:14} And if his oblation to Yehovah be a burnt-offering of birds,

then he shall offer his oblation of turtle-doves, or of young pigeons.

{1:15} And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off its

head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood of it shall be drained

out on the side of the altar; {1:16} and he shall take away its crop

with the filth there, and cast it beside the altar on the east part,

in the place of the ashes: {1:17} and he shall rend it by the wings

there, [but] shall not divide it asunder; and the priest shall burn

it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire: it is a

burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

 

 

O3)2

   {2:1} And when any one offers an oblation of a meal-offering unto

Yehovah, his oblation shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil

upon it, and put frankincense thereon: {2:2} and he shall bring it to

Aaron's sons the priests; and he shall take out his handful of the

fine flour there, and of the oil there, with all the frankincense

there; and the priest shall burn [it as] the memorial of it upon

the altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah:

{2:3} and that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron's and

his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of Yehovah made by

fire.

 

   {2:4} And when you offer an oblation of a meal-offering baked in

the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil,

or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. {2:5} And if your oblation be a

meal-offering of the baking-pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened,

mingled with oil. {2:6} you shall part it in pieces, and pour oil

thereon: it is a meal-offering. {2:7} And if your oblation be a

meal-offering of the frying-pan, it shall be made of fine flour with

oil. {2:8} And you shall bring the meal-offering that is made of these

things unto Yehovah: and it shall be presented unto the priest, and he

shall bring it unto the altar. {2:9} And the priest shall take up from

the meal-offering the memorial there, and shall burn it upon the

altar, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah. {2:10}

And that which is left of the meal-offering shall be Aaron's and his

sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of Yehovah made by fire.

 

   {2:11} No meal-offering, which you shall offer unto Yehovah, shall be

made with leaven; for you shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, as an

offering made by fire unto Yehovah. {2:12} As an oblation of

first-[fruits] you shall offer them unto Yehovah: but they shall not

come up for a sweet savor on the altar. {2:13} And every oblation of

your meal-offering shall you season with salt; neither shall you

suffer the salt of the covenant of your God to be lacking from your

meal-offering: with all your oblations you shall offer salt.

 

   {2:14} And if you offer a meal-offering of first-fruits unto

Yehovah, you shall offer for the meal-offering of your first-fruits

grain in the ear parched with fire, bruised grain of the fresh ear.

{2:15} And you shall put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it

is a meal-offering. {2:16} And the priest shall burn the memorial of

it, part of the bruised grain there, and part of the oil there,

with all the frankincense there: it is an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah.

 

 

O3)3

   {3:1} And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace-offerings; if he

offer of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it outside

blemish before Yehovah. {3:2} And he shall lay his hand upon the head

of his oblation, and kill it at the door of the tent of meeting: and

Aaron's sons the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round

about. {3:3} And he shall offer of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an

offering made by fire unto Yehovah; the fat that covers the inwards,

and all the fat that is upon the inwards, {3:4} and the two kidneys,

and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the caul upon

the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away. {3:5} And Aaron's sons

shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt-offering, which is upon the

wood that is on the fire: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet

savor unto Yehovah.

 

   {3:6} And if his oblation for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto

Yehovah be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it outside

blemish. {3:7} If he offer a lamb for his oblation, then shall he offer

it before Yehovah; {3:8} and he shall lay his hand upon the head of his

oblation, and kill it before the tent of meeting: and Aaron's sons

shall sprinkle the blood of it upon the altar round about. {3:9} And

he shall offer of the sacrifice of peace-offerings an offering made by

fire unto Yehovah; the fat there, the fat tail entire, he shall take

away hard by the backbone; and the fat that covers the inwards, and

all the fat that is upon the inwards, {3:10} and the two kidneys, and

the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the caul upon the

liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away. {3:11} And the priest

shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by

fire unto Yehovah.

 

   {3:12} And if his oblation be a goat, then he shall offer it before

Yehovah: {3:13} and he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill

it before the tent of meeting; and the sons of Aaron shall sprinkle the

blood of it upon the altar round about. {3:14} And he shall offer

of it his oblation, [even] an offering made by fire unto Yehovah; the

fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the

inwards, {3:15} and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them,

which is by the loins, and the caul upon the liver, with the kidneys,

shall he take away. {3:16} And the priest shall burn them upon the

altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire, for a sweet savor;

all the fat is Yehovah's. {3:17} It shall be a perpetual statute

throughout your generations in all your dwellings, that you shall eat

neither fat nor blood.

 

 

 

 

O3)4

   {4:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {4:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, If any one shall sin unwittingly, in any of

the things which Yehovah has commanded not to be done, and shall do

any one of them: {4:3} if the anointed priest shall sin so as to bring

guilt on the people, then let him offer for his sin, which he has

sinned, a young bullock outside blemish unto Yehovah for a

sin-offering. {4:4} And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the

tent of meeting before Yehovah; and he shall lay his hand upon the head

of the bullock, and kill the bullock before Yehovah. {4:5} And the

anointed priest shall take of the blood of the bullock, and bring it to

the tent of meeting: {4:6} and the priest shall dip his finger in the

blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before Yehovah, before the

veil of the sanctuary. {4:7} And the priest shall put of the blood upon

the horns of the altar of sweet incense before Yehovah, which is in the

tent of meeting; and all the blood of the bullock shall he pour out at

the base of the altar of burnt-offering, which is at the door of the

tent of meeting. {4:8} And all the fat of the bullock of the

sin-offering he shall take off from it; the fat that covers the

inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, {4:9} and the two

kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the

caul upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away, {4:10} as it

is taken off from the ox of the sacrifice of peace-offerings: and the

priest shall burn them upon the altar of burnt-offering. {4:11} And the

skin of the bullock, and all its flesh, with its head, and with its

legs, and its inwards, and its dung, {4:12} even the whole bullock

shall he carry forth outside the camp unto a clean place, where the

ashes are poured out, and burn it on wood with fire: where the ashes

are poured out shall it be burnt.

 

   {4:13} And if the whole congregation of Israel err, and the thing be

hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done any of the things

which Yehovah has commanded not to be done, and are guilty; {4:14}

when the sin wherein they have sinned is known, then the assembly shall

offer a young bullock for a sin-offering, and bring it before the tent

of meeting. {4:15} And the elders of the congregation shall lay their

hands upon the head of the bullock before Yehovah; and the bullock

shall be killed before Yehovah. {4:16} And the anointed priest shall

bring of the blood of the bullock to the tent of meeting: {4:17} and

the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven

times before Yehovah, before the veil. {4:18} And he shall put of the

blood upon the horns of the altar which is before Yehovah, that is in

the tent of meeting; and all the blood shall he pour out at the base of

the altar of burnt-offering, which is at the door of the tent of

meeting. {4:19} And all the fat of it shall he take off from it, and

burn it upon the altar. {4:20} Thus shall he do with the bullock; as he

did with the bullock of the sin-offering, so shall he do with this; and

the priest shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven.

{4:21} And he shall carry forth the bullock outside the camp, and burn

it as he burned the first bullock: it is the sin-offering for the

assembly.

 

   {4:22} When a ruler sins, and does unwittingly any one of all

the things which Yehovah his God has commanded not to be done, and is

guilty; {4:23} if his sin, wherein he has sinned, be made known to

him, he shall bring for his oblation a goat, a male outside blemish.

{4:24} And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it

in the place where they kill the burnt-offering before Yehovah: it is a

sin-offering. {4:25} And the priest shall take of the blood of the

sin-offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of

burnt-offering; and the blood of it shall he pour out at the base of

the altar of burnt-offering. {4:26} And all the fat of it shall he

burn upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace-offerings;

and the priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin, and

he shall be forgiven.

 

   {4:27} And if any one of the common people sin unwittingly, in doing

any of the things which Yehovah has commanded not to be done, and be

guilty; {4:28} if his sin, which he has sinned, be made known to him,

then he shall bring for his oblation a goat, a female outside blemish,

for his sin which he has sinned. {4:29} And he shall lay his hand upon

the head of the sin-offering, and kill the sin-offering in the place of

burnt-offering. {4:30} And the priest shall take of the blood there

with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of

burnt-offering; and all the blood of it shall he pour out at the base

of the altar. {4:31} And all the fat of it shall he take away, as the

fat is taken away from off the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the

priest shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor unto Yehovah; and

the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be forgiven.

 

   {4:32} And if he bring a lamb as his oblation for a sin-offering, he

shall bring it a female outside blemish. {4:33} And he shall lay his

hand upon the head of the sin-offering, and kill it for a sin-offering

in the place where they kill the burnt-offering. {4:34} And the priest

shall take of the blood of the sin-offering with his finger, and put it

upon the horns of the altar of burnt-offering; and all the blood

of it shall he pour out at the base of the altar: {4:35} and all the

fat of it shall he take away, as the fat of the lamb is taken away

from the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the priest shall burn them

on the altar, upon the offerings of Yehovah made by fire; and the

priest shall make atonement for him as touching his sin that he has

sinned, and he shall be forgiven.

 

 

 

O3)5

   {5:1} And if any one sin, in that he hears the voice of

adjuration, he being a witness, whether he has seen or known, if he do

not utter [it], then he shall bear his works without law. {5:2} Or if any one

touch any unclean thing, whether it be the carcass of an unclean beast,

or the carcass of unclean cattle, or the carcass of unclean creeping

things, and it be hidden from him, and he be unclean, then he shall be

guilty. {5:3} Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, what so ever his

uncleanness be wherewith he is unclean, and it be hid from him; when he

knows of it, then he shall be guilty. {5:4} Or if any one swear

rashly with his lips to do evil, or to do good, what so ever it be that a

man shall utter rashly with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he

knows of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these [things]. {5:5}

And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these [things], that

he shall confess that wherein he has sinned: {5:6} and he shall bring

his trespass-offering unto Yehovah for his sin which he has sinned, a

female from the flock, a lamb or a goat, for a sin-offering; and the

priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin.

 

   {5:7} And if his means suffice not for a lamb, then he shall bring

his trespass-offering for that wherein he has sinned, two

turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, unto Yehovah; one for a

sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering. {5:8} And he shall

bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the

sin-offering first, and wring off its head from its neck, but shall not

divide it asunder: {5:9} and he shall sprinkle of the blood of the

sin-offering upon the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood

shall be drained out at the base of the altar: it is a sin-offering.

{5:10} And he shall offer the second for a burnt-offering, according to

the ordinance; and the priest shall make atonement for him as

concerning his sin which he has sinned, and he shall be forgiven.

 

   {5:11} But if his means suffice not for two turtle-doves, or two

young pigeons, then he shall bring his oblation for that wherein he

has sinned, the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a

sin-offering: he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any

frankincense thereon; for it is a sin-offering. {5:12} And he shall

bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it as

the memorial there, and burn it on the altar, upon the offerings of

Yehovah made by fire: it is a sin-offering. {5:13} And the priest shall

make atonement for him as touching his sin that he has sinned in any

of these things, and he shall be forgiven: and [the remnant] shall be

the priest's, as the meal-offering.

 

   {5:14} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {5:15} If any one

commit a trespass, and sin unwittingly, in the holy things of Yehovah;

then he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Yehovah, a ram outside

blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation in silver by

shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass-offering:

{5:16} and he shall make restitution for that which he has done amiss

in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it

unto the priest; and the priest shall make atonement for him with the

ram of the trespass-offering, and he shall be forgiven.

 

   {5:17} And if any one sin, and do any of the things which Yehovah

has commanded not to be done; though he knew it not, yet is he guilty,

and shall bear his works without law. {5:18} And he shall bring a ram outside

blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation, for a

trespass-offering, unto the priest; and the priest shall make atonement

for him concerning the thing wherein he erred unwittingly and knew it

not, and he shall be forgiven. {5:19} It is a trespass-offering: he is

certainly guilty before Yehovah.

 

O3)6

   {6:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:2} If any one sin,

and commit a trespass against Yehovah, and deal falsely with his

neighbor in a matter of deposit, or of bargain, or of robbery, or have

oppressed his neighbor, {6:3} or have found that which was lost, and

deal falsely therein, and swear to a lie; in any of all these things

that a man does, sinning therein; {6:4} then it shall be, if he has

sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took by

robbery, or the thing which he has gotten by oppression, or the

deposit which was committed to him, or the lost thing which he found,

{6:5} or any thing about which he has sworn falsely; he shall even

restore it in full, and shall add the fifth part more thereto: unto him

to whom it appertains shall he give it, in the day of his being found

guilty. {6:6} And he shall bring his trespass-offering unto Yehovah, a

ram outside blemish out of the flock, according to your estimation, for

a trespass-offering, unto the priest: {6:7} and the priest shall make

atonement for him before Yehovah; and he shall be forgiven concerning

what so ever he does so as to be guilty thereby.

 

   {6:8} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:9} Command Aaron and

his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt-offering: the

burnt-offering shall be on the hearth upon the altar all night unto the

morning; and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning thereon.

{6:10} And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen

breeches shall he put upon his flesh; and he shall take up the ashes

whereto the fire has consumed the burnt-offering on the altar, and he

shall put them beside the altar. {6:11} And he shall put off his

garments, and put on other garments, and carry forth the ashes outside

the camp unto a clean place. {6:12} And the fire upon the altar shall

be kept burning thereon, it shall not go out; and the priest shall burn

wood on it every morning: and he shall lay the burnt-offering in order

upon it, and shall burn thereon the fat of the peace-offerings. {6:13}

Fire shall be kept burning upon the altar continually; it shall not go

out.

 

   {6:14} And this is the law of the meal-offering: the sons of Aaron

shall offer it before Yehovah, before the altar. {6:15} And he shall

take up there from his handful, of the fine flour of the meal-offering,

and of the oil there, and all the frankincense which is upon the

meal-offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor, as

the memorial there, unto Yehovah. {6:16} And that which is left

of it shall Aaron and his sons eat: it shall be eaten outside leaven

in a holy place; in the court of the tent of meeting they shall eat it.

{6:17} It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their

portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as the

sin-offering, and as the trespass-offering. {6:18} Every male among the

children of Aaron shall eat of it, as [his] portion for ever throughout

your generations, from the offerings of Yehovah made by fire: anyone who

touches them shall be holy.

 

   {6:19} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:20} This is the

oblation of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer unto Yehovah

in the day when he is anointed: the tenth part of an ephah of fine

flour for a meal-offering perpetually, half of it in the morning, and

half of it in the evening. {6:21} On a baking-pan it shall be made

with oil; when it is soaked, you shall bring it in: in baked pieces

shall you offer the meal-offering for a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

{6:22} And the anointed priest that shall be in his stead from among

his sons shall offer it: by a statute for ever it shall be wholly burnt

unto Yehovah. {6:23} And every meal-offering of the priest shall be

wholly burnt: it shall not be eaten.

 

   {6:24} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:25} Speak unto Aaron

and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin-offering: in the

place where the burnt-offering is killed shall the sin-offering be

killed before Yehovah: it is most holy. {6:26} The priest that offers

it for sin shall eat it: in a holy place shall it be eaten, in the

court of the tent of meeting. {6:27} What so ever shall touch the flesh

of it shall be holy; and when there is sprinkled of the blood there

upon any garment, you shall wash that whereon it was sprinkled in a

holy place. {6:28} But the earthen vessel wherein it is boiled shall be

broken; and if it be boiled in a brazen vessel, it shall be scoured,

and rinsed in water. {6:29} Every male among the priests shall eat

there: it is most holy. {6:30} And no sin-offering, where any of

the blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the

holy place, shall be eaten: it shall be burnt with fire.

 

 

O3)7

   {7:1} And this is the law of the trespass-offering: it is most holy.

{7:2} In the place where they kill the burnt-offering shall they kill

the trespass-offering; and the blood of it shall he sprinkle upon the

altar round about. {7:3} And he shall offer of it all the fat there:

the fat tail, and the fat that covers the inwards, {7:4} and the two

kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the

caul upon the liver, with the kidneys, shall he take away; {7:5} and

the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire

unto Yehovah: it is a trespass-offering. {7:6} Every male among the

priests shall eat there: it shall be eaten in a holy place: it is

most holy. {7:7} As is the sin-offering, so is the trespass-offering;

there is one law for them: the priest that makes atonement with,

he shall have it. {7:8} And the priest that offers any man's

burnt-offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the

burnt-offering which he has offered. {7:9} And every meal-offering

that is baked in the oven, and all that is dressed in the frying-pan,

and on the baking-pan, shall be the priest's that offers it. {7:10}

And every meal-offering, mingled with oil, or dry, shall all the sons

of Aaron have, one as well as another.

 

   {7:11} And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace-offerings,

which one shall offer unto Yehovah. {7:12} If he offer it for a

thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving

unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with

oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour soaked. {7:13} With

cakes of leavened bread he shall offer his oblation with the sacrifice

of his peace-offerings for thanksgiving. {7:14} And of it he shall

offer one out of each oblation for a heave-offering unto Yehovah; it

shall be the priest's that sprinkles the blood of the peace-offerings.

 

   {7:15} And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings for

thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his oblation; he shall not

leave any of it until the morning. {7:16} But if the sacrifice of his

oblation be a vow, or a freewill-offering, it shall be eaten on the day

that he offers his sacrifice; and on the morrow that which remains

of it shall be eaten: {7:17} but that which remains of the flesh of

the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire. {7:18} And if

any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings be eaten on

the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed

unto him that offers it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul

that eats of it shall bear his works without law.

 

   {7:19} And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be

eaten; it shall be burnt with fire. And as for the flesh, every one

that is clean shall eat there: {7:20} but the soul that eats of the

flesh of the sacrifice of peace-offerings, that pertain unto Yehovah,

having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from his

people. {7:21} And when any one shall touch any unclean thing, the

uncleanness of man, or an unclean beast, or any unclean abomination,

and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which pertain

unto Yehovah, that soul shall be cut off from his people.

 

   {7:22} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {7:23} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, you shall eat no fat, of ox, or sheep, or

goat. {7:24} And the fat of that which dies of itself, and the fat of

that which is torn of beasts, may be used for any other service; but you

shall in no wise eat of it. {7:25} For anyone who eats the fat of the

beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah, even

the soul that eats it shall be cut off from his people. {7:26} And you

shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of bird or of beast, in any

of your dwellings. {7:27} Anyone who it be that eats any blood, that

soul shall be cut off from his people.

 

   {7:28} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {7:29} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, He that offers the sacrifice of his

peace-offerings unto Yehovah shall bring his oblation unto Yehovah out

of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings: {7:30} his own hands shall

bring the offerings of Yehovah made by fire; the fat with the breast

shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave-offering before

Yehovah. {7:31} And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar; but

the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'. {7:32} And the right thigh

shall you give unto the priest for a heave-offering out of the

sacrifices of your peace-offerings. {7:33} He among the sons of Aaron

that offers the blood of the peace-offerings, and the fat, shall have

the right thigh for a portion. {7:34} For the wave-breast and the

heave-thigh have I taken of the children of Israel out of the

sacrifices of their peace-offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the

priest and unto his sons as [their] portion for ever from the children

of Israel.

 

   {7:35} This is the anointing-portion of Aaron, and the

anointing-portion of his sons, out of the offerings of Yehovah made by

fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto Yehovah in the

priest's office; {7:36} which Yehovah commanded to be given them of the

children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them. It is [their]

portion for ever throughout their generations.

 

   {7:37} This is the law of the burnt-offering, of the meal-offering,

and of the sin-offering, and of the trespass-offering, and of the

consecration, and of the sacrifice of peace-offerings; {7:38} which

Yehovah commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded

the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto Yehovah, in the

wilderness of Sinai.

 

 

O3)8

   {8:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {8:2} Take Aaron and his

sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and the bullock

of the sin-offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened

bread; {8:3} and assemble you all the congregation at the door of the

tent of meeting. {8:4} And Moses did as Yehovah commanded him; and the

congregation was assembled at the door of the tent of meeting. {8:5}

And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which Yehovah

has commanded to be done.

 

   {8:6} And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with

water. {8:7} And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the

girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and

he girded him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod, and bound it

unto him with. {8:8} And he placed the breastplate upon him: and

in the breastplate he put the Urim and the Thummim. {8:9} And he set

the mitre upon his head; and upon the mitre, in front, did he set the

golden plate, the holy crown; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {8:10} And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle

and all that was therein, and sanctified them. {8:11} And he sprinkled

of it upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its

vessels, and the laver and its base, to sanctify them. {8:12} And he

poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head, and anointed him, to

sanctify him. {8:13} And Moses brought Aaron's sons, and clothed them

with coats, and girded them with girdles, and bound head-tires upon

them; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {8:14} And he brought the bullock of the sin-offering: and Aaron and

his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock of the

sin-offering. {8:15} And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put

it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and

purified the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar,

and sanctified it, to make atonement for it. {8:16} And he took all the

fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul of the liver, and the two

kidneys, and their fat; and Moses burned it upon the altar. {8:17} But

the bullock, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, he burnt with

fire outside the camp; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {8:18} And he presented the ram of the burnt-offering: and Aaron and

his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram. {8:19} And he

killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

{8:20} And he cut the ram into its pieces; and Moses burnt the head,

and the pieces, and the fat. {8:21} And he washed the inwards and the

legs with water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a

burnt-offering for a sweet savor: it was an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {8:22} And he presented the other ram, the ram of consecration: and

Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram. {8:23}

And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood there, and put it upon

the tip of Aaron's right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and

upon the great toe of his right foot. {8:24} And he brought Aaron's

sons; and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and

upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their

right foot: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

{8:25} And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and all the fat that was

upon the inwards, and the caul of the liver, and the two kidneys, and

their fat, and the right thigh: {8:26} and out of the basket of

unleavened bread, that was before Yehovah, he took one unleavened cake,

and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat,

and upon the right thigh: {8:27} and he put the whole upon the hands of

Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons, and waved them for a

wave-offering before Yehovah. {8:28} And Moses took them from off their

hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt-offering: they were a

consecration for a sweet savor: it was an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah. {8:29} And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a

wave-offering before Yehovah: it was Moses' portion of the ram of

consecration; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {8:30} And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which

was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, upon his garments, and

upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments with him, and sanctified

Aaron, his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.

 

   {8:31} And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at

the door of the tent of meeting: and there eat it and the bread that is

in the basket of consecration, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his

sons shall eat it. {8:32} And that which remains of the flesh and of

the bread shall you burn with fire. {8:33} And you shall not go out from

the door of the tent of meeting seven days, until the days of your

consecration be fulfilled: for he shall consecrate you seven days.

{8:34} As has been done this day, so Yehovah has commanded to do, to

make atonement for you. {8:35} And at the door of the tent of meeting

shall you abide day and night seven days, and keep the charge of

Yehovah, that you die not: for so I am commanded. {8:36} And Aaron and

his sons did all the things which Yehovah commanded by Moses.

 

 

O3)9

   {9:1} And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron

and his sons, and the elders of Israel; {9:2} and he said unto Aaron,

Take you a calf of the herd for a sin-offering, and a ram for a

burnt-offering, outside blemish, and offer them before Yehovah. {9:3}

And unto the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, Take you a

he-goat for a sin-offering; and a calf and a lamb, both a year old,

outside blemish, for a burnt-offering; {9:4} and an ox and a ram for

peace-offerings, to sacrifice before Yehovah; and a meal-offering

mingled with oil: for to-day Yehovah appears unto you. {9:5} And they

brought that which Moses commanded before the tent of meeting: and all

the congregation drew near and stood before Yehovah. {9:6} And Moses

said, This is the thing which Yehovah commanded that you should do: and

the glory of Yehovah shall appear unto you. {9:7} And Moses said unto

Aaron, Draw near unto the altar, and offer your sin-offering, and your

burnt-offering, and make atonement for yourself, and for the people; and

offer the oblation of the people, and make atonement for them; as

Yehovah commanded.

 

   {9:8} So Aaron drew near unto the altar, and slew the calf of the

sin-offering, which was for himself. {9:9} And the sons of Aaron

presented the blood unto him; and he dipped his finger in the blood,

and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the

base of the altar: {9:10} but the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul

from the liver of the sin-offering, he burnt upon the altar; as Yehovah

commanded Moses. {9:11} And the flesh and the skin he burnt with fire

outside the camp.

 

   {9:12} And he slew the burnt-offering; and Aaron's sons delivered

unto him the blood, and he sprinkled it upon the altar round about.

{9:13} And they delivered the burnt-offering unto him, piece by piece,

and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar. {9:14} And he washed

the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt-offering on the

altar.

 

   {9:15} And he presented the people's oblation, and took the goat of

the sin-offering which was for the people, and slew it, and offered it

for sin, as the first. {9:16} And he presented the burnt-offering, and

offered it according to the ordinance. {9:17} And he presented the

meal-offering, and filled his hand there from, and burnt it upon the

altar, besides the burnt-offering of the morning.

 

   {9:18} He slew also the ox and the ram, the sacrifice of

peace-offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons delivered

unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

{9:19} and the fat of the ox and of the ram, the fat tail, and that

which covers[the inwards], and the kidneys, and the caul of the

liver: {9:20} and they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the

fat upon the altar: {9:21} and the breasts and the right thigh Aaron

waved for a wave-offering before Yehovah; as Moses commanded.

 

   {9:22} And Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people, and blessed

them; and he came down from offering the sin-offering, and the

burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings. {9:23} And Moses and Aaron

went into the tent of meeting, and came out, and blessed the people:

and the glory of Yehovah appeared unto all the people. {9:24} And there

came forth fire from before Yehovah, and consumed upon the altar the

burnt-offering and the fat: and when all the people saw it, they

shouted, and fell on their faces.

 

 

O3)10

   {10:1} And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took each of them his

censer, and put fire therein, and laid incense thereon, and offered

strange fire before Yehovah, which he had not commanded them. {10:2}

And there came forth fire from before Yehovah, and devoured them, and

they died before Yehovah. {10:3} Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it

that Yehovah spoke, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come near

me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his

peace. {10:4} And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel

the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Draw near, carry your brethren

from before the sanctuary out of the camp. {10:5} So they drew near,

and carried them in their coats out of the camp, as Moses had said.

{10:6} And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar,

his sons, Let not the hair of your heads go loose, neither rend your

clothes; that you die not, and that he be not wroth with all the

congregation: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail

the burning which Yehovah has kindled. {10:7} And you shall not go out

from the door of the tent of meeting, lest you die; for the anointing

oil of Yehovah is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

 

   {10:8} And Yehovah spoke unto Aaron, saying, {10:9} Drink no wine

nor strong drink, you, nor your sons with you, when you go into the

tent of meeting, that you die not: it shall be a statute for ever

throughout your generations: {10:10} and that you may make a distinction

between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean;

{10:11} and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes

which Yehovah has spoken unto them by Moses.

 

   {10:12} And Moses spoke unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto

Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meal-offering that remains

of the offerings of Yehovah made by fire, and eat it outside leaven

beside the altar; for it is most holy; {10:13} and you shall eat it in a

holy place, because it is your portion, and your sons' portion, of the

offerings of Yehovah made by fire: for so I am commanded. {10:14} And

the wave-breast and the heave-thigh shall you eat in a clean place,

you, and your sons, and your daughters with you: for they are given as

your portion, and your sons' portion, out of the sacrifices of the

peace-offerings of the children of Israel. {10:15} The heave-thigh and

the wave-breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the

fat, to wave it for a wave-offering before Yehovah: and it shall be

your, and your sons' with you, as a portion for ever; as Yehovah has

commanded.

 

   {10:16} And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin-offering,

and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and with

Ithamar, the sons of Aaron that were left, saying, {10:17} Wherefore

have you not eaten the sin-offering in the place of the sanctuary,

seeing it is most holy, and he has given it you to bear the works without law

of the congregation, to make atonement for them before Yehovah? {10:18}

Behold, the blood of it was not brought into the sanctuary within: you

should certainly have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded.

{10:19} And Aaron spoke unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered

their sin-offering and their burnt-offering before Yehovah; and there

have befallen me such things as these: and if I had eaten the

sin-offering to-day, would it have been well-pleasing in the sight of

Yehovah? {10:20} And when Moses heard [that], it was well-pleasing in

his sight.

 

 

03)11

   {11:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,

{11:2} Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the living

things which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

{11:3} What so ever parts the hoof, and is cloven footed, [and] Chews

the cud, among the beasts, that you may eat. {11:4} Nevertheless these

you shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that part the

hoof: the camel, because he Chews the cud but parts not the hoof,

he is unclean unto you. {11:5} And the Coney, because he Chews the

cud but parts not the hoof, he is unclean unto you. {11:6} And the

hare, because she Chews the cud but parts not the hoof, she is

unclean unto you. {11:7} And the swine, because he parts the hoof,

and is cloven footed, but Chews not the cud, he is unclean unto you.

{11:8} Of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall

not touch; they are unclean unto you.

 

   {11:9} These may you eat of all that are in the waters: what so ever

has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers,

that may you eat. {11:10} And all that have not fins and scales in the

seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of all the

living creatures that are in the waters, they are an abomination unto

you, {11:11} and they shall be an abomination unto you; you shall not

eat of their flesh, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination.

{11:12} What so ever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that is an

abomination unto you.

 

   {11:13} And these you shall have in abomination among the birds; they

shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the

gier-eagle, and the ospray, {11:14} and the kite, and the falcon after

its kind, {11:15} every raven after its kind, {11:16} and the ostrich,

and the night-hawk, and the seamew, and the hawk after its kind,

{11:17} and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,

{11:18} and the horned owl, and the pelican, and the vulture, {11:19}

and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.

 

   {11:20} All winged creeping things that go upon all fours are an

abomination unto you. {11:21} yet these may you eat of all winged

creeping things that go upon all fours, which have legs above their

feet, wherewith to leap upon the earth. {11:22} Even these of them you

may eat: the locust after its kind, and the bald locust after its kind,

and the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind.

{11:23} But all winged creeping things, which have four feet, are an

abomination unto you.

 

   {11:24} And by these you shall become unclean: anyone who touches the

carcass of them shall be unclean until the even; {11:25} And anyone who

bears [anything] of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be

unclean until the even. {11:26} Every beast which parts the hoof, and

is not cloven-footed, nor Chews the cud, is unclean unto you: every

one that touches them shall be unclean. {11:27} And what so ever goes

upon its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, they are unclean

unto you: who so touches their carcass shall be unclean until the even.

{11:28} And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes,

and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.

 

   {11:29} And these are they which are unclean unto you among the

creeping things that creep upon the earth: the weasel, and the mouse,

and the great lizard after its kind, {11:30} and the gecko, and the

land-crocodile, and the lizard, and the sand-lizard, and the chameleon.

{11:31} These are they which are unclean to you among all that creep:

anyone who does touch them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until

the even. {11:32} And upon what so ever any of them, when they are dead,

does fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or

raiment, or skin, or sack, what so ever vessel it be, wherewith any work

is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the

even; then shall it be clean. {11:33} And every earthen vessel,

where into any of them fall, what so ever is in it shall be unclean,

and it you shall break. {11:34} All food [therein] which may be eaten,

that on which water comes, shall be unclean; and all drink that may be

drunk in every [such] vessel shall be unclean. {11:35} And every thing

whereupon [any part] of their carcass falls shall be unclean; whether

oven, or range for pots, it shall be broken in pieces: they are

unclean, and shall be unclean unto you. {11:36} Nevertheless a fountain

or a pit wherein is a gathering of water shall be clean: but that which

touches their carcass shall be unclean. {11:37} And if [anything] of

their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it is

clean. {11:38} But if water be put upon the seed, and [anything] of their

carcass fall thereon, it is unclean unto you.

 

   {11:39} And if any beast, of which you may eat, die; he that touches

the carcass of it shall be unclean until the even. {11:40} And he

that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean

until the even: he also that bears the carcass of it shall wash his

clothes, and be unclean until the even.

 

   {11:41} And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth is an

abomination; it shall not be eaten. {11:42} What so ever goes upon the

belly, and what so ever goes upon all fours, or what so ever has many

feet, even all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them you shall

not eat; for they are an abomination. {11:43} you shall not make

yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither

shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled

thereby. {11:44} For I am Yehovah your God: sanctify yourselves

therefore, and be you holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile

yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that moves upon the

earth. {11:45} For I am Yehovah that brought you up out of the land of

Egypt, to be your God: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

 

   {11:46} This is the law of the beast, and of the bird, and of every

living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that

creeps upon the earth; {11:47} to make a distinction between the

unclean and the clean, and between the living thing that may be eaten

and the living thing that may not be eaten.

 

 

O3)12

   {12:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {12:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceive seed, and bear a

man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the

impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean. {12:3} And in the eighth

day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. {12:4} And she

shall continue in the blood of [her] purifying three and thirty days;

she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until

the days of her purifying be fulfilled. {12:5} But if she bear a

maid-child, then she shall be unclean two solar sevens, as in her impurity;

and she shall continue in the blood of [her] purifying threescore and

six days.

 

   {12:6} And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son,

or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb a year old for a

burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-dove, for a

sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting, unto the priest:

{12:7} and he shall offer it before Yehovah, and make atonement for

her; and she shall be cleansed from the fountain of her blood. This is

the law for her that bears, whether a male or a female. {12:8} And if

her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take two turtle-doves,

or two young pigeons; the one for a burnt-offering, and the other for a

sin-offering: and the priest shall make atonement for her, and she

shall be clean.

 

 

O3)13

   {13:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {13:2}

When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, or a scab, or

a bright spot, and it become in the skin of his flesh the plague of

leprosy, then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of

his sons the priests: {13:3} and the priest shall look on the plague in

the skin of the flesh: and if the hair in the plague be turned white,

and the appearance of the plague be deeper than the skin of his flesh,

it is the plague of leprosy; and the priest shall look on him, and

pronounce him unclean. {13:4} And if the bright spot be white in the

skin of his flesh, and the appearance of it be not deeper than the

skin, and the hair of it be not turned white, then the priest shall

shut up [him that has] the plague seven days: {13:5} and the priest

shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if in his eyes the

plague be at a stay, and the plague be not spread in the skin, then the

priest shall shut him up seven days more: {13:6} and the priest shall

look on him again the seventh day; and, behold, if the plague be dim,

and the plague be not spread in the skin, then the priest shall

pronounce him clean: it is a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and

be clean. {13:7} But if the scab spread abroad in the skin, after that

he has showed himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall show

himself to the priest again: {13:8} and the priest shall look; and,

behold, if the scab be spread in the skin, then the priest shall

pronounce him unclean: it is leprosy.

 

   {13:9} When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be

brought unto the priest; {13:10} and the priest shall look; and,

behold, if there be a white rising in the skin, and it have turned the

hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising, {13:11} it is

an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce

him unclean: he shall not shut him up, for he is unclean. {13:12} And

if the leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all

the skin of [him that has] the plague from his head even to his feet,

as far as appears to the priest; {13:13} then the priest shall look;

and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall

pronounce [him] clean [that has] the plague: it is all turned white:

he is clean. {13:14} But when so ever raw flesh appears in him, he

shall be unclean. {13:15} And the priest shall look on the raw flesh,

and pronounce him unclean: the raw flesh is unclean: it is leprosy.

{13:16} Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, then

he shall come unto the priest; {13:17} and the priest shall look on

him; and, behold, if the plague be turned into white, then the priest

shall pronounce [him] clean [that has] the plague: he is clean.

 

   {13:18} And when the flesh has in the skin of it a boil, and it

is healed, {13:19} and in the place of the boil there is a white

rising, or a bright spot, reddish-white, then is shall be showed to the

priest; {13:20} and the priest shall look; and, behold, if the

appearance of it be lower than the skin, and the hair of it be

turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the

plague of leprosy, it has broken out in the boil. {13:21} But if the

priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and it

be not lower than the skin, but be dim; then the priest shall shut him

up seven days: {13:22} And if it spread abroad in the skin, then the

priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague. {13:23} But if the

bright spot stay in its place, and be not spread, it is the scar of the

boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

 

   {13:24} Or when the flesh has in the skin of it burning by

fire, and the quick [flesh] of the burning become a bright spot,

reddish-white, or white; {13:25} then the priest shall look upon it;

and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and the

appearance of it be deeper than the skin; it is leprosy, it has

broken out in the burning: and the priest shall pronounce him unclean:

it is the plague of leprosy. {13:26} But if the priest look on it, and,

behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower

than the skin, but be dim; then the priest shall shut him up seven

days: {13:27} and the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: if it

spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:

it is the plague of leprosy. {13:28} And if the bright spot stay in its

place, and be not spread in the skin, but be dim; it is the rising of

the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is the

scar of the burning.

 

   {13:29} And when a man or woman has a plague upon the head or upon

the beard, {13:30} then the priest shall look on the plague; and,

behold, if the appearance of it be deeper than the skin, and there be

in it yellow thin hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it

is a scall, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard. {13:31} And if

the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, the appearance

of it be not deeper than the skin, and there be no black hair in it,

then the priest shall shut up [him that has] the plague of the scall

seven days: {13:32} And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the

plague; and, behold, if the scall be not spread, and there be in it no

yellow hair, and the appearance of the scall be not deeper than the

skin, {13:33} then he shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not

shave; and the priest shall shut up [him that has] the scall seven

days more: {13:34} and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the

scall; and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, and the

appearance of it be not deeper than the skin; then the priest shall

pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

{13:35} But if the scall spread abroad in the skin after his cleansing,

{13:36} then the priest shall look on him; and, behold, if the scall be

spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for the yellow hair; he

is unclean. {13:37} But if in his eyes the scall be at a stay, and

black hair be grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and

the priest shall pronounce him clean.

 

   {13:38} And when a man or a woman has in the skin of the flesh

bright spots, even white bright spots; {13:39} then the priest shall

look; and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be of

a dull white, it is a freckled spot, it has broken out in the skin; he is

clean.

 

   {13:40} And if a man's hair be fallen off his head, he is bald;

[yet] is he clean. {13:41} And if his hair be fallen off from the front

part of his head, he is forehead bald; [yet] is he clean. {13:42} But

if there be in the bald head, or the bald forehead, a reddish-white

plague; it is leprosy breaking out in his bald head, or his bald

forehead. {13:43} Then the priest shall look upon him; and, behold, if

the rising of the plague be reddish-white in his bald head, or in his

bald forehead, as the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the flesh;

{13:44} he is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall surely

pronounce him unclean; his plague is in his head.

 

   {13:45} And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be

rent, and the hair of his head shall go loose, and he shall cover his

upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. {13:46} All the days

wherein the plague is in him he shall be unclean; he is unclean: he

shall dwell alone; outside the camp shall his dwelling be.

 

   {13:47} The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether

it be a wool garment, or a linen garment; {13:48} whether it be in

warp, or woof; of linen, or of wool; whether in a skin, or in

anything made of skin; {13:49} if the plague be greenish or reddish in

the garment, or in the skin, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in

anything of skin; it is the plague of leprosy, and shall be showed unto

the priest. {13:50} And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut

up [that which has] the plague seven days: {13:51} and he shall look

on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be spread in the

garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in the skin, whatever

service skin is used for; the plague is a fretting leprosy; it is

unclean. {13:52} And he shall burn the garment, whether the warp or the

woof, in wool or in linen, or anything of skin, wherein the plague

is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

 

   {13:53} And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not

spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in

anything of skin; {13:54} then the priest shall command that they wash

the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days

more: {13:55} and the priest shall look, after that the plague is

washed; and, behold, if the plague have not changed its color, and the

plague be not spread, it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire: it

is a fret, whether the bareness be within or outside.

 

   {13:56} And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be dim after

the washing there, then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out

of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof: {13:57} and if it

appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in

anything of skin, it is breaking out: you shall burn that wherein the

plague is with fire. {13:58} And the garment, either the warp, or the

woof, or what so ever thing of skin it be, which you shall wash, if the

plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time,

and shall be clean.

 

   {13:59} This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of

wool or linen, either in the warp, or the woof, or anything of skin,

to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

 

 

O3)14

   {14:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {14:2} This shall be

the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: he shall be brought

unto the priest: {14:3} and the priest shall go forth out of the camp;

and the priest shall look; and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be

healed in the leper, {14:4} then shall the priest command to take for

him that is to be cleansed two living clean birds, and cedar wood, and

scarlet, and hyssop: {14:5} And the priest shall command to kill one of

the birds in an earthen vessel over running water. {14:6} As for the

living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and

the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the

bird that was killed over the running water: {14:7} And he shall

sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times,

and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let go the living bird into

the open field. {14:8} And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his

clothes, and shave off all his hair, and bathe himself in water; and he

shall be clean: and after that he shall come into the camp, but shall

dwell outside his tent seven days. {14:9} And it shall be on the

seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his

beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he

shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and he

shall be clean.

 

   {14:10} And on the eighth day he shall take two he-lambs outside

blemish, and one ewe-lamb a year old outside blemish, and three tenth

parts [of an ephah] of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with

oil, and one log of oil. {14:11} And the priest that cleans him

shall set the man that is to be cleansed, and those things, before

Yehovah, at the door of the tent of meeting. {14:12} And the priest

shall take one of the he-lambs, and offer him for a trespass-offering,

and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave-offering before Yehovah:

{14:13} and he shall kill the he-lamb in the place where they kill the

sin-offering and the burnt-offering, in the place of the sanctuary: for

as the sin-offering is the priest's, so is the trespass-offering: it is

most holy: {14:14} and the priest shall take of the blood of the

trespass-offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the

right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his

right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. {14:15} And the

priest shall take of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his

own left hand; {14:16} and the priest shall dip his right finger in the

oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his

finger seven times before Yehovah: {14:17} and of the rest of the oil

that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear

of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand,

and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the

trespass-offering: {14:18} and the rest of the oil that is in the

priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed:

and the priest shall make atonement for him before Yehovah. {14:19} And

the priest shall offer the sin-offering, and make atonement for him

that is to be cleansed because of his uncleanness: and afterward he

shall kill the burnt-offering; {14:20} and the priest shall offer the

burnt-offering and the meal-offering upon the altar: and the priest

shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

 

   {14:21} And if he be poor, and cannot get so much, then he shall

take one he-lamb for a trespass-offering to be waved, to make atonement

for him, and one tenth part [of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with

oil for a meal-offering, and a log of oil; {14:22} and two

turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get; and the

one shall be a sin-offering, and the other a burnt-offering. {14:23}

And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing unto the

priest, unto the door of the tent of meeting, before Yehovah: {14:24}

and the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass-offering, and the

log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before

Yehovah. {14:25} And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass-offering;

and the priest shall take of the blood of the trespass-offering, and

put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and

upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right

foot. {14:26} And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his

own left hand; {14:27} and the priest shall sprinkle with his right

finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before

Yehovah: {14:28} and the priest shall put of the oil that is in his

hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and

upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right

foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass-offering: {14:29} and

the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the

head of him that is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before

Yehovah. {14:30} And he shall offer one of the turtle-doves, or of the

young pigeons, such as he is able to get, {14:31} even such as he is

able to get, the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a

burnt-offering, with the meal-offering: and the priest shall make

atonement for him that is to be cleansed before Yehovah. {14:32} This

is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, who is not able to

get [that which pertains] to his cleansing.

 

   {14:33} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {14:34}

When you are come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a

possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of

your possession; {14:35} then he that owns the house shall come and

tell the priest, saying, There seems to me to be as it were a plague

in the house. {14:36} And the priest shall command that they empty the

house, before the priest goes in to see the plague, that all that is

in the house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in

to see the house: {14:37} and he shall look on the plague; and, behold,

if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow streaks,

greenish or reddish, and the appearance of it be lower than the wall;

{14:38} then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the

house, and shut up the house seven days. {14:39} And the priest shall

come again the seventh day, and shall look; and, behold, if the plague

be spread in the walls of the house; {14:40} then the priest shall

command that they take out the stones in which the plague is, and cast

them into an unclean place outside the city: {14:41} and he shall cause

the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the

mortar, that they scrape off, outside the city into an unclean place:

{14:42} and they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of

those stones; and he shall take other mortar, and shall plaster the

house.

 

   {14:43} And if the plague come again, and break out in the house,

after that he has taken out the stones, and after he has scraped the

house, and after it is plastered; {14:44} then the priest shall come in

and look; and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a

fretting leprosy in the house: it is unclean. {14:45} And he shall

break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber there, and all

the mortar of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city

into an unclean place. {14:46} Also he that goes into the house

all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

{14:47} And he that lies in the house shall wash his clothes; and he

that eats in the house shall wash his clothes.

 

   {14:48} And if the priest shall come in, and look, and, behold, the

plague has not spread in the house, after the house was plastered;

then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is

healed. {14:49} And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and

cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop: {14:50} and he shall kill one of

the birds in an earthen vessel over running water: {14:51} and he shall

take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living

bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running

water, and sprinkle the house seven times: {14:52} and he shall cleanse

the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and

with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and

with the scarlet: {14:53} but he shall let go the living bird out of

the city into the open field: so shall he make atonement for the house;

and it shall be clean.

 

   {14:54} This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and for

a scall, {14:55} and for the leprosy of a garment, and for a house,

{14:56} and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot;

{14:57} to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the

law of leprosy.

 

 

O3)15

   {15:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying, {15:2}

Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man has

an issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean. {15:3}

And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run

with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his

uncleanness. {15:4} Every bed whereon he that has the issue lies

shall be unclean; and everything whereon he sits shall be unclean.

{15:5} And anyone who touches his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe

himself in water, and be unclean until the even. {15:6} And he that

sit son anything whereon he that has the issue sat shall wash his

clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

{15:7} And he that touches the flesh of him that has the issue shall

wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the

even. {15:8} And if he that has the issue spit upon him that is clean,

then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be

unclean until the even. {15:9} And what saddle so ever he that has the

issue rides upon shall be unclean. {15:10} And anyone who touches

anything that was under him shall be unclean until the even: and he

that bears those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in

water, and be unclean until the even. {15:11} And whom so ever he that

has the issue touches, outside having rinsed his hands in water, he

shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean

until the even. {15:12} And the earthen vessel, which he that has the

issue touches, shall be broken; and every vessel of wood shall be

rinsed in water.

 

   {15:13} And when he that has an issue is cleansed of his issue,

then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash

his clothes; and he shall bathe his flesh in running water, and shall

be clean. {15:14} And on the eighth day he shall take to him two

turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and come before Yehovah unto the

door of the tent of meeting, and give them unto the priest: {15:15} and

the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin-offering, and the other

for a burnt-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for him

before Yehovah for his issue.

 

   {15:16} And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he

shall bathe all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.

{15:17} And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of

copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even.

{15:18} The woman also with whom a man shall lie with seed of

copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean

until the even.

 

   {15:19} And if a woman have an issue, [and] her issue in her flesh

be blood, she shall be in her impurity seven days: and anyone who

touches her shall be unclean until the even. {15:20} And everything

that she lies upon in her impurity shall be unclean: everything also

that she sits upon shall be unclean. {15:21} And anyone who touches

her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be

unclean until the even. {15:22} And anyone who touches anything that

she sits upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,

and be unclean until the even. {15:23} And if it be on the bed, or on

anything whereon she sits, when he touches it, he shall be unclean

until the even. {15:24} And if any man lie with her, and her impurity

be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days; and every bed whereon he

lies shall be unclean.

 

   {15:25} And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days not in

the time of her impurity, or if she have an issue beyond the time of

her impurity; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness she shall be

as in the days of her impurity: she is unclean. {15:26} Every bed

whereon she lies all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the

bed of her impurity: and everything whereon she sits shall be

unclean, as the uncleanness of her impurity. {15:27} And anyone who

touches those things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes, and

bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. {15:28} But if

she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven

days, and after that she shall be clean. {15:29} And on the eighth day

she shall take unto her two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and

bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting. {15:30}

And the priest shall offer the one for a sin-offering, and the other

for a burnt-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her

before Yehovah for the issue of her uncleanness.

 

   {15:31} Thus shall you separate the children of Israel from their

uncleanness, that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile

my tabernacle that is in the midst of them.

 

   {15:32} This is the law of him that has an issue, and of him whose

seed of copulation goes from him, so that he is unclean thereby;

{15:33} and of her that is sick with her impurity, and of him that has

an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lies with her

that is unclean.

 

 

O3)16

   {16:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, after the death of the two sons

of Aaron, when they drew near before Yehovah, and died; {16:2} and

Yehovah said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron your brother, that he come not

at all times into the holy place within the veil, before the mercy-seat

which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud

upon the mercy-seat. {16:3} Herewith shall Aaron come into the holy

place: with a young bullock for a sin-offering, and a ram for a

burnt-offering. {16:4} He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he

shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with

the linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: they

are the holy garments; and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and put

them on. {16:5} And he shall take of the congregation of the children

of Israel two he-goats for a sin-offering, and one ram for a

burnt-offering.

 

   {16:6} And Aaron shall present the bullock of the sin-offering,

which is for himself, and make atonement for himself, and for his

house. {16:7} And he shall take the two goats, and set them before

Yehovah at the door of the tent of meeting. {16:8} And Aaron shall cast

lots upon the two goats; one lot for Yehovah, and the other lot for

Azazel. {16:9} And Aaron shall present the goat upon which the lot fell

for Yehovah, and offer him for a sin-offering. {16:10} But the goat, on

which the lot fell for Azazel, shall be set alive before Yehovah, to

make atonement for him, to send him away for Azazel into the wilderness.

 

   {16:11} And Aaron shall present the bullock of the sin-offering,

which is for himself, and shall make atonement for himself, and for his

house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin-offering which is for

himself: {16:12} and he shall take a censer full of coals of fire from

off the altar before Yehovah, and his hands full of sweet incense

beaten small, and bring it within the veil: {16:13} and he shall put

the incense upon the fire before Yehovah, that the cloud of the incense

may cover the mercy-seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

{16:14} and he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it

with his finger upon the mercy-seat on the east; and before the

mercy-seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

 

   {16:15} Then shall he kill the goat of the sin-offering, that is for

the people, and bring his blood within the veil, and do with his blood

as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the

mercy-seat, and before the mercy-seat: {16:16} and he shall make

atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the

children of Israel, and because of their transgression of the law, even all their

sins: and so shall he do for the tent of meeting, that dwells with

them in the midst of their uncleanness. {16:17} And there shall be no

man in the tent of meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the

holy place, until he come out, and have made atonement for himself, and

for his household, and for all the assembly of Israel. {16:18} And he

shall go out unto the altar that is before Yehovah, and make atonement

for it, and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of

the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. {16:19}

And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times,

and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of

Israel.

 

   {16:20} And when he has made an end of atoning for the holy place,

and the tent of meeting, and the altar, he shall present the live goat:

{16:21} and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live

goat, and confess over him all the works without law of the children of

Israel, and all their transgression of the law, even all their sins; and he shall

put them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand

of a man that is in readiness into the wilderness: {16:22} and the goat

shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a solitary land: and he

shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

 

   {16:23} And Aaron shall come into the tent of meeting, and shall put

off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy

place, and shall leave them there: {16:24} and he shall bathe his flesh

in water in a holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and

offer his burnt-offering and the burnt-offering of the people, and make

atonement for himself and for the people. {16:25} And the fat of the

sin-offering shall he burn upon the altar. {16:26} And he that lets

go the goat for Azazel shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in

water, and afterward he shall come into the camp. {16:27} And the

bullock of the sin-offering, and the goat of the sin-offering, whose

blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall be

carried forth outside the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their

skins, and their flesh, and their dung. {16:28} And he that burns

them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and

afterward he shall come into the camp.

 

   {16:29} And it shall be a statute for ever unto you: in the seventh

moon, on the tenth day of the moon, you shall afflict your souls, and

shall do no manner of work, the home-born, or the stranger that

sojourns among you: {16:30} for on this day shall atonement be made

for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins shall you be clean before

Yehovah. {16:31} It is a Sabbath of solemn rest unto you, and you shall

afflict your souls; it is a statute for ever. {16:32} And the priest,

who shall be anointed and who shall be consecrated to be priest in his

father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen

garments, even the holy garments: {16:33} and he shall make atonement

for the holy sanctuary; and he shall make atonement for the tent of

meeting and for the altar; and he shall make atonement for the priests

and for all the people of the assembly. {16:34} And this shall be an

everlasting statute unto you, to make atonement for the children of

Israel because of all their sins once in the year. And he did as

Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

 

O3)17

   {17:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {17:2} Speak unto

Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say

unto them: This is the thing which Yehovah has commanded, saying,

{17:3} What man so ever there be of the house of Israel, that kills an

ox, or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that kills it outside the camp,

{17:4} and has not brought it unto the door of the tent of meeting, to

offer it as an oblation unto Yehovah before the tabernacle of Yehovah:

blood shall be imputed unto that man; he has shed blood; and that man

shall be cut off from among his people: {17:5} To the end that the

children of Israel may bring their sacrifices, which they sacrifice in

the open field, even that they may bring them unto Yehovah, unto the

door of the tent of meeting, unto the priest, and sacrifice them for

sacrifices of peace-offerings unto Yehovah. {17:6} And the priest shall

sprinkle the blood upon the altar of Yehovah at the door of the tent of

meeting, and burn the fat for a sweet savor unto Yehovah. {17:7} And

they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices unto the he-goats, after

which they play the whore. This shall be a statute forever unto them

throughout their generations.

 

   {17:8} And you shall say unto them, What so ever man there be of the

house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, that

offers a burnt-offering or sacrifice, {17:9} and brings it not unto

the door of the tent of meeting, to sacrifice it unto Yehovah; that man

shall be cut off from his people.

 

   {17:10} And what so ever man there be of the house of Israel, or of

the strangers that sojourn among them, that eats any manner of blood,

I will set my face against that soul that eats blood, and will cut

him off from among his people. {17:11} For the life of the flesh is in

the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement

for your souls: for it is the blood that makes atonement by reason of

the life. {17:12} Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul

of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourns

among you eat blood. {17:13} And what so ever man there be of the

children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who

takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten; he shall pour

out the blood there, and cover it with dust.

 

   {17:14} For as to the life of all flesh, the blood of it is [all

one] with the life there: therefore I said unto the children of

Israel, you shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh; for the life of

all flesh is the blood there: anyone who eats it shall be cut off.

{17:15} And every soul that eats that which dies of itself, or that

which is torn of beasts, whether he be home-born or a sojourner, he

shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean

until the even: then shall he be clean. {17:16} But if he wash them

not, nor bathe his flesh, then he shall bear his works without law.

 

 

O3)18

   {18:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {18:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Yehovah your God. {18:3}

After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, shall you not

do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I bring you,

shall you not do; neither shall you walk in their statutes. {18:4} Mine

ordinances shall you do, and my statutes shall you keep, to walk therein:

I am Yehovah your God. {18:5} you shall therefore keep my statutes, and

mine ordinances; which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am Yehovah.

 

   {18:6} None of you shall approach to any that are near of kin to

him, to uncover [their] nakedness: I am Yehovah. {18:7} The nakedness

of your father, even the nakedness of your mother, shall you not

uncover: she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness.

{18:8} The nakedness of your father's wife shall you not uncover: it is

your father's nakedness. {18:9} The nakedness of your sister, the

daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at

home, or born abroad, even their nakedness you shall not uncover.

{18:10} The nakedness of your son's daughter, or of your daughter's

daughter, even their nakedness you shall not uncover: for theirs is

your own nakedness. {18:11} The nakedness of your father's wife's

daughter, begotten of your father, she is your sister, you shall not

uncover her nakedness. {18:12} you shall not uncover the nakedness of

your father's sister: she is your father's near kinswoman. {18:13} you

shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister: for she is your

mother's near kinswoman. {18:14} you shall not uncover the nakedness

of your father's brother, you shall not approach to his wife: she is

your aunt. {18:15} you shall not uncover the nakedness of your

daughter-in-law: she is your son's wife; you shall not uncover her

nakedness. {18:16} you shall not uncover the nakedness of your

brother's wife: it is your brother's nakedness. {18:17} you shall not

uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take

her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her

nakedness; they are near kinswomen: it is wickedness. {18:18} And you

shall not take a wife to her sister, to be a rival [to her], to uncover

her nakedness, besides the other in her life-time.

 

   {18:19} And you shall not approach unto a woman to uncover her

nakedness, as long as she is impure by her uncleanness. {18:20} And

you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, to defile yourself

with her. {18:21} And you shall not give any of your seed to make them

pass through [the fire] to Molech; neither shall you profane the name

of your God: I am Yehovah. {18:22} you shall not lie with mankind, as

with womankind: it is abomination. {18:23} And you shall not lie with

any beast to defile yourself with; neither shall any woman stand

before a beast, to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

 

   {18:24} Defile not you yourselves in any of these things: for in all

these the nations are defiled which I cast out from before you; {18:25}

And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the works without law of it upon

it, and the land vomits out her inhabitants. {18:26} you therefore

shall keep my statutes and mine ordinances, and shall not do any of

these abominations; neither the home-born, nor the stranger that

sojourns among you; {18:27} (for all these abominations have the men

of the land done, that were before you, and the land is defiled);

{18:28} that the land vomit not you out also, when you defile it, as it

vomited out the nation that was before you. {18:29} For anyone who shall

do any of these abominations, even the souls that do them shall be cut

off from among their people. {18:30} Therefore shall you keep my charge,

that you practice not any of these abominable customs, which were

practiced before you, and that you defile not yourselves therein: I am

Yehovah your God.

 

 

 

   {19:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {19:2} Speak unto all

the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, you shall

be holy; for I Yehovah your God am holy. {19:3} you shall fear every man

his mother, and his father; and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am Yehovah

your God. {19:4} Turn you not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten

gods: I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {19:5} And when you offer a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto

Yehovah, you shall offer it that you may be accepted. {19:6} It shall be

eaten the same day you offer it, and on the morrow: and if anything remain

until the third day, it shall be burnt with fire. {19:7} And if it be

eaten at all on the third day, it is an abomination; it shall not be

accepted: {19:8} but every one that eats it shall bear his works without law,

because he has profaned the holy thing of Yehovah: and that soul shall

be cut off from his people.

 

   {19:9} And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not

wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the

gleaning of your harvest. {19:10} And you shall not glean your vineyard,

neither shall you gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall

leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {19:11} you shall not steal; neither shall you deal falsely, nor lie

one to another. {19:12} And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and

profane the name of your God: I am Yehovah.

 

   {19:13} you shall not oppress your neighbor, nor rob him: the wages

of a hired servant shall not abide with you all night until the

morning. {19:14} you shall not curse the deaf, nor put a

stumbling block before the blind; but you shall fear your God: I am

Yehovah.

 

   {19:15} you shall do no [Illegal] works of outside the law in judgment: you shall not

respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty; but

in [legal] works of the law shall you judge your neighbor. {19:16} you shall not

go up and down as a talebearer among your people: neither shall you

stand against the blood of your neighbor: I am Yehovah.

 

   {19:17} you shall not hate your brother in your heart: you shall

surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. {19:18}

you shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children

of your people; but you shall [agape] love your neighbor as yourself: I am

Yehovah.

 

   {19:19} you shall keep my statutes. you shall not let your cattle

gender with a diverse kind: you shall not sow your field with two kinds

of seed: neither shall there come upon you a garment of two kinds of

stuff mingled together. {19:20} And anyone who lies carnally with a

woman, that is a bondmaid, betrothed to a husband, and not at all

redeemed, nor freedom given her; they shall be punished; they shall not

be put to death, because she was not free. {19:21} And he shall bring

his trespass-offering unto Yehovah, unto the door of the tent of

meeting, even a ram for a trespass-offering. {19:22} And the priest

shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass-offering

before Yehovah for his sin which he has sinned: and the sin which he

has sinned shall be forgiven him. {19:23} And when you shall come into

the land, and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then you

shall count the fruit of its their un-circumcision: three years

shall they be as uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten. {19:24}

But in the fourth year all the fruit of it shall be holy, for giving

praise unto Yehovah. {19:25} And in the fifth year shall you eat of the

fruit there, that it may yield unto you the increase there: I am

Yehovah your God.

 

   {19:26} you shall not eat anything with the blood: neither shall you

use enchantments, nor practice augury. {19:27} you shall not round the

corners of your heads, neither shall you mar the corners of your beard.

{19:28} you shall make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor

tattoo any marks upon you: I am Yehovah.

 

   {19:29} Profane not your daughter, to make her a whore; lest the

land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. {19:30}

you shall keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary; I am Yehovah.

 

   {19:31} Turn you not unto them that have familiar spirits, nor unto

the wizards; seek them not out, to be defiled by them: I am Yehovah

your God.

 

   {19:32} you shall rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face

of the old man, and you shall fear your God: I am Yehovah.

 

   {19:33} And if a stranger sojourn with you in your land, you shall

not do him wrong. {19:34} The stranger that sojourns with you shall

be unto you as the home-born among you, and you shall love him as

yourself; for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah your

God.

 

   {19:35} you shall do no unlawful works in judgment, in measures of

length, of weight, or of quantity. {19:36} Just balances, just weights,

a just ephah, and a just hin, shall you have: I am Yehovah your God, who

brought you out of the land of Egypt. {19:37} And you shall observe all

my statutes, and all mine ordinances, and do them: I am Yehovah.

 

 

O3)20

   {20:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {20:2} also, you

shall say to the children of Israel, Anyone who he be of the children of

Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that gives of his

seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the

land shall stone him with stones. {20:3} I also will set my face

against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because

he has given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to

profane my holy name. {20:4} And if the people at the land do at all

hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed unto Molech,

and put him not to death; {20:5} then I will set my face against that

man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that play

the whore after him, to play the whore with Molech, from among their

people.

 

   {20:6} And the soul that turns unto them that have familiar

spirits, and unto the wizards, to play the whore after them, I will

even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his

people. {20:7} Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be you holy; for I am

Yehovah your God. {20:8} And you shall keep my statutes, and do them: I

am Yehovah who sanctifies you. {20:9} For every one that curses his

father or his mother shall surely be put to death: he has cursed his

father or his mother; his blood shall be upon him.

 

   {20:10} And the man that commits adultery with another man's

wife, even he that commits adultery with his neighbor's wife, the

adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. {20:11} And

the man that lies with his father's wife has uncovered his father's

nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall

be upon them. {20:12} And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both

of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion;

their blood shall be upon them. {20:13} And if a man lie with mankind,

as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall

surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. {20:14} And if

a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt

with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.

{20:15} And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death:

and you shall slay the beast. {20:16} And if a woman approach unto any

beast, and lie down thereto, you shall kill the woman, and the beast:

they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

   {20:17} And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter,

or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his

nakedness; it is a shameful thing; and they shall be cut off in the

sight of the children of their people: he has uncovered his sister's

nakedness; he shall bear his works without law. {20:18} And if a man shall lie

with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he

has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of

her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people.

{20:19} And you shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's

sister, nor of your father's sister; for he has made naked his near

kin: they shall bear their works without law. {20:20} And if a man shall lie

with his uncle's wife, he has uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they

shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. {20:21} And if a man

shall take his brother's wife, it is impurity: he has uncovered his

brother's nakedness; they shall be childless.

 

   {20:22} you shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all mine

ordinances, and do them; that the land, where I bring you to dwell

therein, vomit you not out. {20:23} And you shall not walk in the

customs of the nation, which I cast out before you: for they did all

these things, and therefore I abhorred them. {20:24} But I have said

unto you, you shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to

possess it, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am Yehovah your God,

who has separated you from the peoples. {20:25} you shall therefore

make a distinction between the clean beast and the unclean, and between

the unclean fowl and the clean: and you shall not make your souls

abominable by beast, or by bird, or by anything that moves on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. {20:26} And you

shall be holy unto me: for I, Yehovah, am holy, and have set you apart

from the peoples, that you should be mine.

 

   {20:27} A man also or a woman that has a familiar spirit, or that

is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with

stones; their blood shall be upon them.

 

 

O3)21

   {21:1} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Speak unto the priests, the sons

of Aaron, and say unto them, There shall none defile himself for the

dead among his people; {21:2} except for his kin, that is near unto

him, for his mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his

daughter, and for his brother, {21:3} and for his sister a virgin, that

is near unto him, that has had no husband; for her may he defile

himself. {21:4} He shall not defile himself, [being] a chief man among

his people, to profane himself. {21:5} They shall not make baldness

upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their

beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. {21:6} They shall be holy

unto their God, and not profane the name of their God; for the

offerings of Yehovah made by fire, the bread of their God, they do

offer: therefore they shall be holy. {21:7} They shall not take a woman

that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away

from her husband: for he is holy unto his God. {21:8} you shall

sanctify him therefore; for he offers the bread of your God: he shall

be holy unto you: for I Yehovah, who sanctify you, am holy. {21:9} And

the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the

whore, she profanes her father: she shall be burnt with fire.

 

   {21:10} And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon

whose head the anointing oil is poured, and that is consecrated to put

on the garments, shall not let the hair of his head go loose, nor rend

his clothes; {21:11} neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor

defile himself for his father, or for his mother; {21:12} neither shall

he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for

the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am Yehovah.

{21:13} And he shall take a wife in her virginity. {21:14} A widow, or

one divorced, or a profane woman, a whore, these shall he not take:

but a virgin of his own people shall he take to wife. {21:15} And he

shall not profane his seed among his people: for I am Yehovah who

sanctifies him.

 

   {21:16} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {21:17} Speak unto

Aaron, saying, Anyone who he be of your seed throughout their generations

that has a blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his

God. {21:18} For what so ever man he be that has a blemish, he shall not

approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that has a flat nose, or

anything superfluous, {21:19} or a man that is broken-footed, or

broken-handed, {21:20} or crook-backed, or a dwarf, or that has a

blemish in his eye, or is scurvy, or scabbed, or has his stones

broken; {21:21} no man of the seed of Aaron the priest, that has a

blemish, shall come near to offer the offerings of Yehovah made by

fire: he has a blemish; he shall not come near to offer the bread of

his God. {21:22} He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most

holy, and of the holy: {21:23} only he shall not go in unto the veil,

nor come near unto the altar, because he has a blemish; that he

profane not my sanctuaries: for I am Yehovah who sanctifies them.

{21:24} So Moses spoke unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the

children of Israel.

 

 

O3)22

   {22:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {22:2} Speak unto Aaron

and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of

the children of Israel, which they hallow unto me, and that they

profane not my holy name: I am Yehovah. {22:3} Say unto them, Anyone who

he be of all your seed throughout your generations, that approaches

unto the holy things, which the children of Israel hallow unto Yehovah,

having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from before

me: I am Yehovah. {22:4} What man so ever of the seed of Aaron is a

leper, or has an issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he

be clean. And who so touches anything that is unclean by the dead, or a

man whose seed goes from him; {22:5} or anyone who touches any

creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may

take uncleanness, what so ever uncleanness he has; {22:6} the soul that

touches any such shall be unclean until the even, and shall not eat of

the holy things, unless he bathe his flesh in water. {22:7} And when

the sun is down, he shall be clean; and afterward he shall eat of the

holy things, because it is his bread. {22:8} That which dies of

itself, or is torn of beasts, he shall not eat, to defile himself

with: I am Yehovah. {22:9} They shall therefore keep my charge,

lest they bear sin for it, and die therein, if they profane it: I am

Yehovah who sanctifies them.

 

   {22:10} There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner

of the priest's, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.

{22:11} But if a priest buy any soul, the purchase of his money, he

shall eat of it; and such as are born in his house, they shall eat of

his bread. {22:12} And if a priest's daughter be married unto a

stranger, she shall not eat of the heave-offering of the holy things.

{22:13} But if a priest's daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no

child, and be returned unto her father's house, as in her youth, she

shall eat of her father's bread: but there shall no stranger eat

there. {22:14} And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then

he shall put the fifth part of it unto it, and shall give unto the

priest the holy thing. {22:15} And they shall not profane the holy

things of the children of Israel, which they offer unto Yehovah,

{22:16} and [so] cause them to bear the works without law that brings guilt,

when they eat their holy things: for I am Yehovah who sanctifies them.

 

   {22:17} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {22:18} Speak unto

Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel, and say

unto them, Anyone who he be of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners

in Israel, that offers his oblation, whether it be any of their vows,

or any of their freewill-offerings, which they offer unto Yehovah for a

burnt-offering; {22:19} that you may be accepted, [you shall offer] a

male outside blemish, of the bullocks, of the sheep, or of the goats.

{22:20} But what so ever has a blemish, that shall you not offer: for it

shall not be acceptable for you. {22:21} And anyone who offers a

sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Yehovah to accomplish a vow, or for a

freewill-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect to

be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. {22:22} Blind, or

broken, or maimed, or having a running sore, or scurvy, or scabbed, you shall not

offer these unto Yehovah, nor make an offering by fire of them upon the

altar unto Yehovah. {22:23} Either a bullock or a lamb that has

anything superfluous or lacking in his parts, that may you offer

for a freewill-offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted.

{22:24} That which has its stones bruised, or crushed, or broken, or

cut, you shall not offer unto Yehovah; neither shall you do [thus] in

your land. {22:25} Neither from the hand of a foreigner shall you offer

the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in

them, there is a blemish in them: they shall not be accepted for you.

 

   {22:26} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {22:27} When a

bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be

seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and there on it

shall be accepted for the oblation of an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah. {22:28} And whether it be cow or ewe, you shall not kill it and

its young both in one day. {22:29} And when you sacrifice a sacrifice of

thanksgiving unto Yehovah, you shall sacrifice it that you may be

accepted. {22:30} On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave

none of it until the morning: I am Yehovah. {22:31} Therefore shall you

keep my commandments, and do them: I am Yehovah. {22:32} And you shall

not profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed among the children of

Israel: I am Yehovah who hallows you, {22:33} who brought you out of

the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Yehovah.

 

 

O3)23

   {23:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {23:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, The set feasts of Yehovah, which

you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my set

feasts. {23:3} Six days shall work be done: but on the seventh day is a

Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no manner of

work: it is a Sabbath unto Yehovah in all your dwellings.

 

   {23:4} These are the set feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations,

which you shall proclaim in their appointed season. {23:5} In the first

moon, on the fourteenth day of the moon at even, is Yehovah's

Passover. {23:6} And on the fifteenth day of the same moon is the

feast of unleavened bread unto Yehovah: seven days you shall eat

unleavened bread. {23:7} In the first day you shall have a holy

convocation: you shall do no servile work. {23:8} But you shall offer an

offering made by fire unto Yehovah seven days: in the seventh day is a

holy convocation; you shall do no servile work.

 

   {23:9} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {23:10} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, When you are come into the land

which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest there, then you

shall bring the sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest unto the

priest: {23:11} and he shall wave the sheaf before Yehovah, to be

accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave

it. {23:12} And in the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a

he-lamb outside blemish a year old for a burnt-offering unto Yehovah.

{23:13} And the meal-offering of it shall be two tenth parts [of an

ephah] of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering of it shall be of

wine, the fourth part of a hin. {23:14} And you shall eat neither bread,

nor parched grain, nor fresh ears, until this selfsame day, until you

have brought the oblation of your God: it is a statute for ever

throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

 

   {23:15} And you shall count unto you from the morrow after the

Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave-offering;

seven Sabbaths shall there be complete: {23:16} even unto the morrow

after the seventh Sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall

offer a new meal-offering unto Yehovah. {23:17} you shall bring out of

your habitations two wave-loaves of two tenth parts [of an ephah]: they

shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, for

first-fruits unto Yehovah. {23:18} And you shall present with the bread

seven lambs outside blemish a year old, and one young bullock, and two

rams: they shall be a burnt-offering unto Yehovah, with their

meal-offering, and their drink-offerings, even an offering made by

fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah. {23:19} And you shall offer one

he-goat for a sin-offering, and two he-lambs a year old for a sacrifice

of peace-offerings. {23:20} And the priest shall wave them with the

bread of the first-fruits for a wave-offering before Yehovah, with the

two lambs: they shall be holy to Yehovah for the priest. {23:21} And you

shall make proclamation on the selfsame day; there shall be a holy

convocation unto you; you shall do no servile work: it is a statute for

ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

 

   {23:22} And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not

wholly reap the corners of your field, neither shall you gather the

gleaning of your harvest: you shall leave them for the poor, and for

the sojourner: I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {23:23} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {23:24} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, In the seventh moon, on the first day of

the moon, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial of blowing of

trumpets, a holy convocation. {23:25} you shall do no servile work; and

you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

 

   {23:26} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {23:27} Howbeit on the

tenth day of this seventh moon is the day of atonement: it shall be a

holy convocation unto you, and you shall afflict your souls; and you

shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah. {23:28} And you shall

do no manner of work in that same day; for it is a day of atonement, to

make atonement for you before Yehovah your God. {23:29} For what so ever

soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day; he shall be

cut off from his people. {23:30} And what so ever soul it be that does

any manner of work in that same day, that soul will I destroy from

among his people. {23:31} you shall do no manner of work: it is a

statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

{23:32} It shall be unto you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall

afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the moon at even, from even

unto even, shall you keep your Sabbath.

 

   {23:33} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {23:34} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, On the fifteenth day of this seventh moon

is the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto Yehovah. {23:35} On the

first day shall be a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work.

{23:36} Seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah: on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation unto you; and you

shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah: it is a solemn

assembly; you shall do no servile work.

 

   {23:37} These are the set feasts of Yehovah, which you shall proclaim

to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto

Yehovah, a burnt-offering, and a meal-offering, a sacrifice, and

drink-offerings, each on its own day; {23:38} besides the Sabbaths of

Yehovah, and besides your gifts, and besides all your vows, and besides

all your freewill-offerings, which you give unto Yehovah.

 

   {23:39} Howbeit on the fifteenth day of the seventh moon, when you

have gathered in the fruits of the land, you shall keep the feast of

Yehovah seven days: on the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the

eighth day shall be a solemn rest. {23:40} And you shall take you on the

first day the fruit of goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and boughs

of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before

Yehovah your God seven days. {23:41} And you shall keep it a feast unto

Yehovah seven days in the year: it is a statute for ever throughout

your generations; you shall keep it in the seventh moon. {23:42} you

shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are home-born in Israel

shall dwell in booths; {23:43} that your generations may know that I

made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out

of the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah your God. {23:44} And Moses declared

unto the children of Israel the set feasts of Yehovah.

 

 

O3)24

   {24:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {24:2} Command the

children of Israel, that they bring unto you pure olive oil beaten for

the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. {24:3} outside the veil

of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, shall Aaron keep it in order

from evening to morning before Yehovah continually: it shall be a

statute for ever throughout your generations. {24:4} He shall keep in

order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before Yehovah continually.

 

   {24:5} And you shall take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes

there: two tenth parts [of an ephah] shall be in one cake. {24:6} And

you shall set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table

before Yehovah. {24:7} And you shall put pure frankincense upon each

row, that it may be to the bread for a memorial, even an offering made

by fire unto Yehovah. {24:8} Every Sabbath day he shall set it in order

before Yehovah continually; it is on the behalf of the children of

Israel, an everlasting covenant. {24:9} And it shall be for Aaron and

his sons; and they shall eat it in a holy place: for it is most holy

unto him of the offerings of Yehovah made by fire by a perpetual

statute.

 

   {24:10} And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an

Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel; and the son of the

Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp:

{24:11} and the son of the Israelitish woman blasphemed the Name, and

A cursed; and they brought him unto Moses. And his mother's name was

Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. {24:12} And they

put him in ward, that it might be declared unto them at the mouth of

Yehovah.

 

   {24:13} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {24:14} Bring forth

him that has cursed outside the camp; and let all that heard him lay

their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

{24:15} And you shall speak unto the children of Israel, saying,

Anyone who curses his God shall bear his sin. {24:16} And he that

blasphemes the name of Yehovah, he shall surely be put to death; all

the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the sojourner, as

the home-born, when he blasphemes the name [of Yehovah], shall be put

to death. {24:17} And he that smites any man mortally shall surely be

put to death. {24:18} And he that smites a beast mortally shall make

it good, life for life. {24:19} And if a man cause a blemish in his

neighbor; as he has done, so shall it be done to him: {24:20} breach

for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has caused a blemish

in a man, so shall it be rendered unto him. {24:21} And he that kills

a beast shall make it good: and he that kills a man shall be put to

death. {24:22} you shall have one manner of law, as well for the

sojourner, as for the home-born: for I am Yehovah your God. {24:23} And

Moses spoke to the children of Israel; and they brought forth him that

had cursed out of the camp, and stoned him with stones. And the

children of Israel did as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

 

O3)25

   {25:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, {25:2}

Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you come into

the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto

Yehovah. {25:3} Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you

shall prune your vineyard, and gather in the fruits there; {25:4} but

in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a

Sabbath unto Yehovah: you shall neither sow your field, nor prune your

vineyard. {25:5} That which grows of itself of your harvest you shall

not reap, and the grapes of your undressed vine you shall not gather:

it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land. {25:6} And the Sabbath

of the land shall be for food for you; for you, and for your servant

and for your maid, and for your hired servant and for your stranger, who

sojourn with you. {25:7} And for your cattle, and for the beasts that

are in your land, shall all the increase of it be for food.

 

   {25:8} And you shall number seven Sabbaths of years unto you,

seven times seven years; and there shall be unto you the days of seven

Sabbaths of years, even forty and nine years. {25:9} Then shall you

send abroad the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh moon; in

the day of atonement shall you send abroad the trumpet throughout all

your land. {25:10} And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim

liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants there: it shall

be a jubilee unto you; and you shall return every man unto his

possession, and you shall return every man unto his family. {25:11} A

jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you: you shall not sow, neither

reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it

of the undressed vines. {25:12} For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy

unto you: you shall eat the increase of it out of the field.

 

   {25:13} In this year of jubilee you shall return every man unto his

possession. {25:14} And if you sell anything unto your neighbor, or buy of

your neighbor's hand, you shall not wrong one another. {25:15} According

to the number of years after the jubilee you shall buy of your

neighbor, [and] according unto the number of years of the crops he

shall sell unto you. {25:16} According to the multitude of the years

you shall increase the price there, and according to the fewness of

the years you shall diminish the price of it; for the number of the

crops does he sell unto you. {25:17} And you shall not wrong one

another; but you shall fear your God: for I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {25:18} Wherefore you shall do my statutes, and keep mine ordinances

and do them; and you shall dwell in the land in safety. {25:19} And the

land shall yield its fruit, and you shall eat your fill, and dwell

therein in safety. {25:20} And if you shall say, What shall we eat the

seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase;

{25:21} then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and

it shall bring forth fruit for the three years. {25:22} And you shall

sow the eighth year, and eat of the fruits, the old store; until the

ninth year, until its fruits come in, you shall eat the old store.

 

   {25:23} And the land shall not be sold in perpetuity; for the land

is mine: for you are strangers and sojourners with me. {25:24} And in

all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the

land. {25:25} If your brother be waxed poor, and sell some of his

possession, then shall his kinsman that is next unto him come, and

shall redeem that which his brother has sold. {25:26} And if a man

have no one to redeem it, and he be waxed rich and find sufficient to

redeem it; {25:27} then let him reckon the years of the sale there,

and restore the over plus unto the man to whom he sold it; and he shall

return unto his possession. {25:28} But if he be not able to get it

back for himself, then that which he has sold shall remain in the hand

of him that has bought it until the year of jubilee: and in the

jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

 

   {25:29} And if a man sell a dwelling-house in a walled city, then he

may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; for a full year

shall he have the right of redemption. {25:30} And if it be not

redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the

walled city shall be made sure in perpetuity to him that bought it,

throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee. {25:31}

But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them

shall be reckoned with the fields of the country: they may be redeemed,

and they shall go out in the jubilee. {25:32} Nevertheless the cities

of the Levites, the houses of the cities of their possession, may the

Levites redeem at any time. {25:33} And if one of the Levites redeem,

then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go

out in the jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites are

their possession among the children of Israel. {25:34} But the field of

the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual

possession.

 

   {25:35} And if your brother be waxed poor, and his hand fail with

you; then you shall uphold him: [as] a stranger and a sojourner shall

he live with you. {25:36} Take you no interest of him or increase,

but fear your God; that your brother may live with you. {25:37} you

shall not give him your money upon interest, nor give him your victuals

for increase. {25:38} I am Yehovah your God, who brought you forth out

of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, [and] to be your

God.

 

   {25:39} And if your brother be waxed poor with you, and sell himself

unto you; you shall not make him to serve as a bond-servant. {25:40}

As a hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you; he shall

serve with you unto the year of jubilee: {25:41} then shall he go out

from you, he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own

family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return. {25:42}

For they are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of

Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen. {25:43} you shall not rule

over him with rigor, but shall fear your God. {25:44} And as for your

bondmen, and your bondmaids, whom you shall have; of the nations that

are round about you, of them shall you buy bondmen and bondmaids.

{25:45} Also of the children of the strangers that sojourn among

you, of them shall you buy, and of their families that are with you,

which they have begotten in your land: and they shall be your

possession. {25:46} And you shall make them an inheritance for your

children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall you take

your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel you

shall not rule, one over another, with rigor.

 

   {25:47} And if a stranger or sojourner with you be waxed rich, and

your brother be waxed poor beside him, and sell himself unto the

stranger [or] sojourner with you, or to the stock of the stranger's

family; {25:48} after that he is sold he may be redeemed: one of his

brethren may redeem him; {25:49} or his uncle, or his uncle's son, may

redeem him, or any that is near of kin unto him of his family may

redeem him; or if he be waxed rich, he may redeem himself. {25:50} And

he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he sold

himself to him unto the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale

shall be according unto the number of years; according to the time of a

hired servant shall he be with him. {25:51} If there be yet many years,

according unto them he shall give back the price of his redemption out

of the money that he was bought for. {25:52} And if there remain but

few years unto the year of jubilee, then he shall reckon with him;

according unto his years shall he give back the price of his

redemption. {25:53} As a servant hired year by year shall he be with

him: he shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight. {25:54} And if

he be not redeemed by these [means], then he shall go out in the year

of jubilee, he, and his children with him. {25:55} For unto me the

children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought

forth out of the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah your God.

 

 

O3)26

   {26:1} you shall make you no idols, neither shall you rear you up a

graven image, or a pillar, neither shall you place any figured stone in

your land, to bow down unto it: for I am Yehovah your God. {26:2} you

shall keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am Yehovah.

 

   {26:3} If you walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do

them; {26:4} then I will give your rains in their season, and the land

shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their

fruit. {26:5} And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the

vintage shall reach unto the sowing time; and you shall eat your bread

to the full, and dwell in your land safely. {26:6} And I will give

peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you

afraid: and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither

shall the sword go through your land. {26:7} And you shall chase your

enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. {26:8} And five

of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten

thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. {26:9}

And I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply

you, and will establish my covenant with you. {26:10} And you shall eat

old store long kept, and you shall bring forth the old because of the

new. {26:11} And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall

not abhor you. {26:12} And I will walk among you, and will be your God,

and you shall be my people. {26:13} I am Yehovah your God, who brought

you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their

bondmen; and I have broken the bars of your yoke, and made you go

upright.

 

   {26:14} But if you will not hear unto me, and will not do all

these commandments; {26:15} and if you shall reject my statutes, and if

your soul abhor mine ordinances, so that you will not do all my

commandments, but break my covenant; {26:16} I also will do this unto

you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that

shall consume the eyes, and make the soul to pine away; and you shall

sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. {26:17} And I

will set my face against you, and you shall be smitten before your

enemies: they that hate you shall rule over you; and you shall flee when

none pursues you. {26:18} And if you will not yet for these things

hear unto me, then I will chastise you seven times more for your

sins. {26:19} And I will break the pride of your power: and I will make

your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass; {26:20} and your strength

shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its increase,

neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.

 

   {26:21} And if you walk contrary unto me, and will not hear unto

me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your

sins. {26:22} And I will send the beast of the field among you, which

shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you

few in number; and your ways shall become desolate. {26:23} And if by

these things you will not be reformed unto me, but will walk contrary

unto me; {26:24} then will I also walk contrary unto you; and I will

smite you, even I, seven times for your sins. {26:25} And I will bring

a sword upon you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and

you shall be gathered together within your cities: and I will send the

pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the

enemy. {26:26} When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake

your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by

weight: and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.

 

   {26:27} And if you will not for all this hear unto me, but walk

contrary unto me; {26:28} then I will walk contrary unto you in wrath;

and I also will chastise you seven times for your sins. {26:29} And you

shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall

you eat. {26:30} And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your

sun-images, and cast your dead bodies upon the bodies of your idols;

and my soul shall abhor you. {26:31} And I will make your cities a

waste, and will bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not

smell the savor of your sweet odors. {26:32} And I will bring the land

into desolation; and your enemies that dwell therein shall be

astonished at it. {26:33} And you will I scatter among the nations, and

I will draw out the sword after you: and your land shall be a

desolation, and your cities shall be a waste.

 

   {26:34} Then shall the land enjoy its Sabbaths, as long as it lies

desolate, and you are in your enemies' land; even then shall the land

rest, and enjoy its Sabbaths. {26:35} As long as it lies desolate it

shall have rest, even the rest which it had not in your Sabbaths, when

you dwelt upon it. {26:36} And as for them that are left of you, I will

send a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies: and

the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as

one flees from the sword; and they shall fall when none pursues.

{26:37} And they shall stumble one upon another, as it were before the

sword, when none pursues: and you shall have no power to stand before

your enemies. {26:38} And you shall perish among the nations, and the

land of your enemies shall eat you up. {26:39} And they that are left

of you shall pine away in their works without law in your enemies' lands; and

also in the works without law of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

 

   {26:40} And they shall confess their works without law, and the works without law of

their fathers, in their trespass which they trespassed against me, and

also that, because they walked contrary unto me, {26:41} I also walked

contrary unto them, and brought them into the land of their enemies: if

then their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then accept of the

punishment of their works without law; {26:42} then will I remember my covenant

with Jacob; and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with

Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land. {26:43} The land

also shall be left by them, and shall enjoy its Sabbaths, while it

lies desolate outside them: and they shall accept of the punishment of

their works without law; because, even because they rejected mine ordinances,

and their soul abhorred my statutes. {26:44} And yet for all that, when

they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither

will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant

with them; for I am Yehovah their God; {26:45} but I will for their

sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth

out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be

their God: I am Yehovah.

 

   {26:46} These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which

Yehovah made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by

Moses.

 

 

O3)27

   {27:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {27:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall accomplish a

vow, the persons shall be for Yehovah by your estimation. {27:3} And your

estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty

years old, even your estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after

the shekel of the sanctuary. {27:4} And if it be a female, then your

estimation shall be thirty shekels. {27:5} And if it be from five years

old even unto twenty years old, then your estimation shall be of the

male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels. {27:6} And if it

be from a moon old even unto five years old, then your estimation shall

be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female your

estimation shall be three shekels of silver. {27:7} And if it be from

sixty years old and upward; if it be a male, then your estimation shall

be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels. {27:8} But if he be

poorer than your estimation, then he shall be set before the priest, and

the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him that vowed

shall the priest value him.

 

   {27:9} And if it be a beast, where men offer an oblation unto

Yehovah, all that any man gives of such unto Yehovah shall be holy.

{27:10} He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a

bad for a good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then

both it and that for which it is changed shall be holy. {27:11} And if

it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer an oblation unto

Yehovah, then he shall set the beast before the priest; {27:12} and the

priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as you the priest

values it, so shall it be. {27:13} But if he will indeed redeem it,

then he shall add the fifth part of it unto your estimation.

 

   {27:14} And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto

Yehovah, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad:

as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand. {27:15} And if he

that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth

part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it shall be his.

 

   {27:16} And if a man shall sanctify unto Yehovah part of the field

of his possession, then your estimation shall be according to the sowing

there: the sowing of a homer of barley [shall be valued] at fifty

shekels of silver. {27:17} If he sanctify his field from the year of

jubilee, according to your estimation it shall stand. {27:18} But if he

sanctify his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall reckon unto

him the money according to the years that remain unto the year of

jubilee; and an abatement shall be made from your estimation. {27:19}

And if he that sanctified the field will indeed redeem it, then he

shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it

shall be assured to him. {27:20} And if he will not redeem the field,

or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed

any more: {27:21} but the field, when it goes out in the jubilee,

shall be holy unto Yehovah, as a field devoted; the possession there

shall be the priest's. {27:22} And if he sanctify unto Yehovah a field

which he has bought, which is not of the field of his possession;

{27:23} then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of your

estimation unto the year of jubilee: and he shall give your estimation

in that day, as a holy thing unto Yehovah. {27:24} In the year of

jubilee the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to

him to whom the possession of the land belongs. {27:25} And all your

estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty

gerahs shall be the shekel.

 

   {27:26} Only the firstling among beasts, which is made a firstling

to Yehovah, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox or sheep, it is

Yehovah's. {27:27} And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall

ransom it according to your estimation, and shall add unto it the

fifth part there: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold

according to your estimation.

 

   {27:28} Notwithstanding, no devoted thing, that a man shall devote

unto Yehovah of all that he has, whether of man or beast, or of the

field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing

is most holy unto Yehovah. {27:29} No one devoted, that shall be

devoted from among men, shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to

death.

 

   {27:30} And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the

land, or of the fruit of the tree, is Yehovah's: it is holy unto

Yehovah. {27:31} And if a man will redeem anything of his tithe, he shall

add unto it the fifth part there. {27:32} And all the tithe of the

herd or the flock, what so ever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be

holy unto Yehovah. {27:33} He shall not search whether it be good or

bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both

it and that for which it is changed shall be holy; it shall not be

redeemed.

 

   {27:34} These are the commandments, which Yehovah commanded Moses

for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

 

 

o4)1   The Book of Numbers

 

 

The Fourth Book of the Torah, called Numbers

 

   {1:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in

the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second Moon, in the

second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

{1:2} Take you the sum of all the congregation of the children of

Israel, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the

number of the names, every male, by their polls; {1:3} from twenty

years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel,

you and Aaron shall number them by their hosts. {1:4} And with you

there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of his fathers'

house. {1:5} And these are the names of the men that shall stand with

you. Of Reuben: Elizur the son of Shedeur. {1:6} Of Simeon: Shelumiel

son of Enan. {1:16} These are they that were called of the

congregation, the princes of the tribes of their fathers; they were the

heads of the thousands of Israel. {1:17} And Moses and Aaron took these

men that are mentioned by name: {1:18} And they assembled all the

congregation together on the first day of the second Moon; and they

declared their pedigrees after their families, by their fathers'

houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and

upward, by their polls. {1:19} As Yehovah commanded Moses, so he

numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.

 

   {1:20} And the children of Reuben, Israel's first-born, their

generations, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to

the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years

old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; {1:21} those

that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Reuben, were forty and six

thousand and five hundred.

 

   {1:22} Of the children of Simeon, their generations, by their

forty and five thousand six hundred and fifty. {1:26} Of the children

of Judah, their generations, by their families, by their fathers'

houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and

upward, all that were able to go forth to war; {1:27} those that were

numbered of them, of the tribe of Judah, were threescore and fourteen

thousand and six hundred.

 

   {1:28} Of the children of Issachar, their generations, by their

families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth

to war; {1:29} those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of

Issachar, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.

 

   {1:30} Of the children of Zebulun, their generations, by their

families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth

to war; {1:31} those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of

Zebulun, were fifty and seven thousand and four hundred.

 

   {1:32} Of the children of Joseph, [namely], of the children of

Ephraim, their generations, by their families, by their fathers'

houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and

upward, all that were able to go forth to war; {1:33} those that were

numbered of them, of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand and five

hundred.

 

   {1:34} Of the children of Manasseh, their generations, by their

families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth

to war; {1:35} those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of

Manasseh, were thirty and two thousand and two hundred.

 

   {1:36} Of the children of Benjamin, their generations, by their

families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth

to war; {1:37} those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of

Benjamin, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

 

   {1:38} Of the children of Dan, their generations, by their families,

by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the names, from

twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

{1:39} those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Dan, were

threescore and two thousand and seven hundred.

 

   {1:40} Of the children of Asher, their generations, by their

families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of the

   {1:44} These are they that were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron

numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: they were each

one for his fathers' house. {1:45} So all they that were numbered of

the children of Israel by their fathers' houses, from twenty years old

and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel; {1:46}

even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three

thousand and five hundred and fifty.

 

   {1:47} But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not

numbered among them. {1:48} For Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,

{1:49} Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, neither shall you

take the sum of them among the children of Israel; {1:50} but appoint

you the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all the

furniture there, and over all that belongs to it: they shall bear

the tabernacle, and all the furniture there; and they shall minister

unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle. {1:51} And when

the tabernacle sets forward, the Levites shall take it down; and

when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and

the stranger that comes near shall be put to death. {1:52} And the

children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp,

and every man by his own standard, according to their hosts. {1:53} But

the Levites shall encamp round about the tabernacle of the testimony,

that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel:

and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of the

testimony. {1:54} Thus did the children of Israel; according to all

that Yehovah commanded Moses, so did they.

 

 

O4)2

   {2:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {2:2} The

children of Israel shall encamp every man by his own standard, with the

ensigns of their fathers' houses: over against the tent of meeting

shall they encamp round about. {2:3} And those that encamp on the east

the son of Reuel. {2:15} And his host, and those that were numbered of

them, were forty and five thousand and six hundred and fifty. {2:16}

All that were numbered of the camp of Reuben were a hundred thousand

and fifty and one thousand and four hundred and fifty, according to

their hosts. And they shall set forth second.

 

   {2:17} Then the tent of meeting shall set forward, with the camp of

the Levites in the midst of the camps: as they encamp, so shall they

set forward, every man in his place, by their standards.

 

   {2:18} On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim

according to their hosts: and the prince of the children of Ephraim

shall be Elishama the son of Ammihud. {2:19} And his host, and those

and two thousand and two hundred. {2:22} And the tribe of Benjamin: and

the prince of the children of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of

hundred. {2:27} And those that encamp next unto him shall be the tribe

of Asher: and the prince of the children of Asher shall be Pagiel the

son of Ochran. {2:28} And his host, and those that were numbered of

them, were forty and one thousand and five hundred. {2:29} And the

tribe of Naphtali: and the prince of the children of Naphtali shall be

Ahira the son of Enan. {2:30} And his host, and those that were

numbered of them, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

{2:31} All that were numbered of the camp of Dan were a hundred

thousand and fifty and seven thousand and six hundred. They shall set

forth hindmost by their standards.

 

   {2:32} These are they that were numbered of the children of Israel

by their fathers' houses: all that were numbered of the camps according

to their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five

hundred and fifty. {2:33} But the Levites were not numbered among the

children of Israel; as Yehovah commanded Moses. {2:34} Thus did the

children of Israel; according to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so

they encamped by their standards, and so they set forward, every one by

their families, according to their fathers' houses.

 

 

O4)3

   {3:1} Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day

that Yehovah spoke with Moses in mount Sinai. {3:2} And these are the

names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the first-born, and Abihu, Eleazar,

and Ithamar. {3:3} These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the

priests that were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the

priest's office. {3:4} And Nadab and Abihu died before Yehovah, when

they offered strange fire before Yehovah, in the wilderness of Sinai,

and they had no children; and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the

priest's office in the presence of Aaron their father.

 

   {3:5} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {3:6} Bring the tribe of

Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister

unto him. {3:7} And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the

whole congregation before the tent of meeting, to do the service of the

tabernacle. {3:8} And they shall keep all the furniture of the tent of

meeting, and the charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of

the tabernacle. {3:9} And you shall give the Levites unto Aaron and to

his sons: they are wholly given unto him on the behalf of the children

of Israel. {3:10} And you shall appoint Aaron and his sons, and they

shall keep their priesthood: and the stranger that comes near shall be

put to death.

 

   {3:11} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {3:12} And I, behold, I

have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all

the first-born that opens the womb among the children of Israel; and

the Levites shall be mine: {3:13} for all the first-born are mine; on

the day that I smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt I hallowed

unto me all the first-born in Israel, both man and beast; mine they

shall be: I am Yehovah.

 

   {3:14} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai,

saying, {3:15} Number the children of Levi by their fathers' houses, by

their families: every male from a Moon old and upward shall you

number them. {3:16} And Moses numbered them according to the word of

Yehovah, as he was commanded. {3:17} And these were the sons of Levi by

their names: Gershon, and Kohas, and Merari. {3:18} And these are the

names of the sons of Gershon by their families: Libni and Shimei.

{3:19} And the sons of Kohas by their families: Amram, and Izhar,

Hebron, and Uzziel. {3:20} And the sons of Merari by their families:

Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to

their fathers' houses.

 

   {3:21} Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of

the Shimeites: these are the families of the Gershonites. {3:22} Those

that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males,

from a Moon old and upward, even those that were numbered of them were

seven thousand and five hundred. {3:23} The families of the Gershonites

shall encamp behind the tabernacle westward. {3:24} And the prince of

the fathers' house of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of

Lael. {3:25} And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tent of

meeting shall be the tabernacle, and the Tent, the covering there,

and the screen for the door of the tent of meeting, {3:26} and the

hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the court, which

is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and the cords of it

for all the service there.

 

   {3:27} And of Kohas was the family of the Amramites, and the family

of the Izharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of

the Uzzielites: these are the families of the Kohasites. {3:28}

According to the number of all the males, from a Moon old and upward,

there were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the

sanctuary. {3:29} The families of the sons of Kohas shall encamp on

the side of the tabernacle southward. {3:30} And the prince of the

fathers' house of the families of the Kohasites shall be Elizaphan the

son of Uzziel. {3:31} And their charge shall be the ark, and the table,

and the candlestick, and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary

wherewith they minister, and the screen, and all the service there.

{3:32} And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be prince of the

princes of the Levites, [and have] the oversight of them that keep the

charge of the sanctuary.

 

   {3:33} Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of

the Mushites: these are the families of Merari. {3:34} And those that

were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a

Moon old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred. {3:35} And the

prince of the fathers' house of the families of Merari was Zuriel the

son of Abihail: they shall encamp on the side of the tabernacle

northward. {3:36} And the appointed charge of the sons of Merari shall

be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars there, and the pillars

there, and the sockets there, and all the instruments there, and

all the service there, {3:37} and the pillars of the court round

about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.

 

   {3:38} And those that encamp before the tabernacle eastward, before

the tent of meeting toward the sun rising, shall be Moses, and Aaron and

his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the

children of Israel; and the stranger that comes near shall be put to

death. {3:39} All that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and

Aaron numbered at the commandment of Yehovah, by their families, all

the males from a Moon old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

 

   {3:40} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Number all the first-born males

of the children of Israel from a Moon old and upward, and take the

number of their names. {3:41} And you shall take the Levites for me (I

am Yehovah) instead of all the first-born among the children of Israel;

and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the

cattle of the children of Israel: {3:42} and Moses numbered, as Yehovah

commanded him, all the first-born among the children of Israel. {3:43}

And all the first-born males according to the number of names, from a

Moon old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty

and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

 

   {3:44} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {3:45} Take the Levites

instead of all the first-born among the children of Israel, and the

cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle; and the Levites shall be

mine: I am Yehovah. {3:46} And for the redemption of the two hundred

and threescore and thirteen of the first-born of the children of

Israel, that are over and above [the number of] the Levites, {3:47}

you shall take five shekels apiece by the poll; after the shekel of

the sanctuary shall you take them (the shekel is twenty gerahs):

{3:48} and you shall give the money, wherewith the odd number of them

is redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons. {3:49} And Moses took the

redemption-money from them that were over and above them that were

redeemed by the Levites; {3:50} from the first-born of the children of

Israel took he the money, a thousand three hundred and threescore and

five [shekels], after the shekel of the sanctuary: {3:51} and Moses

gave the redemption-money unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the

word of Yehovah, as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

 

 

 

O4)4

   {4:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {4:2}

Take the sum of the sons of Kohas from among the sons of Levi, by

their families, by their fathers' houses, {4:3} from thirty years old

and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter upon the service,

to do the work in the tent of meeting. {4:4} This is the service of the

sons of Kohas in the tent of meeting, [about] the most holy things:

{4:5} when the camp sets forward, Aaron shall go in, and his sons,

and they shall take down the veil of the screen, and cover the ark of

the testimony with it, {4:6} and shall put thereon a covering of

sealskin, and shall spread over it a cloth all of blue, and shall put

in the staves there. {4:7} And upon the table of showbread they shall

spread a cloth of blue, and put thereon the dishes, and the spoons, and

the bowls and the cups wherewith to pour out; and the continual bread

shall be thereon: {4:8} and they shall spread upon them a cloth of

scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of sealskin, and shall put

in the staves there. {4:9} And they shall take a cloth of blue, and

cover the candlestick of the light, and its lamps, and its snuffers,

and its snuff dishes, and all the oil vessels there, wherewith they

minister unto it: {4:10} and they shall put it and all the vessels

of it within a covering of sealskin, and shall put it upon the frame.

{4:11} And upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue, and

cover it with a covering of sealskin, and shall put in the staves

there: {4:12} and they shall take all the vessels of ministry,

wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of

blue, and cover them with a covering of sealskin, and shall put them on

the frame. {4:13} And they shall take away the ashes from the altar,

and spread a purple cloth thereon: {4:14} and they shall put upon it

all the vessels there, wherewith they minister about it, the

fire pans, the flesh-hooks, and the shovels, and the basins, all the

vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a covering of

sealskin, and put in the staves there. {4:15} And when Aaron and his

sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the furniture

of the sanctuary, as the camp is set forward; after that, the sons of

Kohas shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch the sanctuary,

lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohas in the

tent of meeting. {4:16} And the charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the

priest shall be the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the

continual meal-offering, and the anointing oil, the charge of all the

tabernacle, and of all that therein is, the sanctuary, and the

furniture there.

 

   {4:17} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {4:18}

Cut you not off the tribe of the families of the Kohasites from among

the Levites; {4:19} 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; {4:20} but they shall not go in to see the sanctuary even for a

moment, lest they die.

 

   {4:21} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {4:22} Take the sum of

the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' houses, by their families;

{4:23} from thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shall

you number them; all that enter in to wait upon the service, to do the

work in the tent of meeting. {4:24} This is the service of the families

of the Gershonites, in serving and in bearing burdens: {4:25} they

shall bear the curtains of the tabernacle, and the tent of meeting, its

covering, and the covering of sealskin that is above upon it, and the

screen for the door of the tent of meeting, {4:26} and the hangings of

the court, and the screen 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 what so ever shall be done with

them: therein shall they serve. {4:27} At the commandment of Aaron and

his sons shall be all the service of the sons of the Gershonites, in

all their burden, and in all their service; and you shall appoint unto

them in charge all their burden. {4:28} This is the service of the

families of the sons of the Gershonites in the tent of meeting: and

their charge shall be under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the

priest.

 

   {4:29} As for the sons of Merari, you shall number them by their

families, by their fathers' houses; {4:30} from thirty years old and

upward even unto fifty years old shall you number them, every one that

enters upon the service, to do the work of the tent of meeting.

{4:31} And this is the charge of their burden, according to all their

service in the tent of meeting: the boards of the tabernacle, and the

bars there, and the pillars there, and the sockets there, {4:32}

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 you shall appoint the instruments of the charge of

their burden. {4:33} This is the service of the families of the sons of

Merari, according to all their service, in the tent of meeting, under

the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

 

   {4:34} And Moses and Aaron and the princes of the congregation

numbered the sons of the Kohasites by their families, and by their

fathers' houses, {4:35} from thirty years old and upward even unto

fifty years old, every one that entered upon the service, for work in

the tent of meeting: {4:36} and those that were numbered of them by

their families were two thousand seven hundred and fifty. {4:37} These

are they that were numbered of the families of the Kohasites, all that

did serve in the tent of meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered

according to the commandment of Yehovah by Moses. {4:38} And those that

were numbered of the sons of Gershon, their families, and by their

fathers' houses, {4:39} from thirty years old and upward even unto

fifty years old, every one that entered upon the service, for work in

the tent of meeting, {4:40} even those that were numbered of them, by

their families, by their fathers' houses, were two thousand and six

hundred and thirty. {4:41} These are they that were numbered of the

families of the sons of Gershon, all that did serve in the tent of

meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of

Yehovah.

 

   {4:42} And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of

Merari, by their families, by their fathers' houses, {4:43} from thirty

years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entered

upon the service, for work in the tent of meeting, {4:44} even those

that were numbered of them by their families, were three thousand and

two hundred. {4:45} These are they that were numbered of the families

of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the

commandment of Yehovah by Moses.

 

   {4:46} All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and

Aaron and the princes of Israel numbered, by their families, and by

their fathers' houses, {4:47} from thirty years old and upward even

unto fifty years old, every one that entered in to do the work of

service, and the work of bearing burdens in the tent of meeting, {4:48}

even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and five

hundred and fourscore. {4:49} According to the commandment of Yehovah

they were numbered by Moses, every one according to his service, and

according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as Yehovah

commanded Moses.

 

 

 

 

O4)5

   {5:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {5:2} Command the

children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and

every one that has an issue, and anyone who is unclean by the dead:

{5:3} both male and female shall you put out, outside the camp shall you

put them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst where I

dwell. {5:4} And the children of Israel did so, and put them out

outside the camp; as Yehovah spoke unto Moses, so did the children of

Israel.

 

   {5:5} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {5:6} Speak unto the

children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men

commit, so as to trespass against Yehovah, and that soul shall be

guilty; {5:7} then he shall confess his sin which he has done: and he

shall make restitution for his guilt in full, and add unto it the fifth

part there, and give it unto him in respect of whom he has been

guilty. {5:8} But if the man have no kinsman to whom restitution may be

made for the guilt, the restitution for guilt which is made unto

Yehovah shall be the priest's; besides the ram of the atonement,

whereby atonement shall be made for him. {5:9} And every heave-offering

of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they present

unto the priest, shall be his. {5:10} And every man's hallowed things

shall be his: what so ever any man gives the priest, it shall be his.

 

   {5:11} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {5:12} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and

commit a trespass against him, {5:13} 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, and she be not taken

in the act; {5:14} 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:

{5:15} then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and shall

bring her oblation 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 a

meal-offering of jealousy, a meal-offering of memorial, bringing

works without law to remembrance.

 

   {5:16} And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before

Yehovah: {5:17} and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen

vessel; and of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the

priest shall take, and put it into the water. {5:18} And the priest

shall set the woman before Yehovah, and let the hair of the woman's

head go loose, and put the meal-offering of memorial in her hands,

which is the meal-offering of jealousy: and the priest shall have in

his hand the water of bitterness that causes the curse. {5:19} And the

priest shall cause her to swear, and shall say unto the woman, If no

man have lain with you, and if you have not gone aside to

uncleanness, being under your husband, be you free from this water of

bitterness that causes the curse. {5:20} But if you have gone aside,

being under your husband, and if you be defiled, and some man have lain

with you besides your husband: {5:21} then the priest shall cause the

woman to swear with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto

the woman, Yehovah make you a curse and an oath among your people, when

Yehovah does make your thigh to fall away, and your body to swell; {5:22}

and this water that causes the curse shall go into your bowels, and

make your body to swell, and your thigh to fall away. And the woman shall

say, Amen, Amen.

 

   {5:23} And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he

shall blot them out into the water of bitterness: {5:24} and he shall

make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causes the curse;

and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her [and become]

bitter. {5:25} And the priest shall take the meal-offering of jealousy

out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the meal-offering before

Yehovah, and bring it unto the altar: {5:26} and the priest shall take

a handful of the meal-offering, as the memorial there, and burn it

upon the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water.

{5:27} And when he has made her drink the water, then it shall come to

pass, if she be defiled, and have committed a trespass against her

husband, that the water that causes the curse shall enter into her

[and become] bitter, and her body shall swell, and her thigh shall fall

away: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. {5:28} And if

the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and

shall conceive seed.

 

   {5:29} This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her

husband, goes aside, and is defiled; {5:30} or when the spirit of

jealousy comes upon a man, and he is jealous of his wife; then shall

he set the woman before Yehovah, and the priest shall execute upon her

all this law. {5:31} And the man shall be free from works without law, and that

woman shall bear her works without law.

 

 

O4)6

   {6:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall

make a special vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to separate himself unto

Yehovah, {6:3} he shall separate himself from wine and strong drink; he

shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither

shall he drink any juice of grapes, nor eat fresh grapes or dried.

{6:4} All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made

of the grape-vine, from the kernels even to the husk.

 

   {6:5} All the days of his vow of separation there shall no razor

come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in which he separates

himself unto Yehovah, he shall be holy; he shall let the locks of the

hair of his head grow long.

 

   {6:6} All the days that he separates himself unto Yehovah he shall

not come near to a dead body. {6:7} He shall not make himself unclean

for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister,

when they die; because his separation unto God is upon his head. {6:8}

All the days of his separation he is holy unto Yehovah.

 

   {6:9} And if any man die very suddenly beside him, and he defile the

head of his separation; then he shall shave his head in the day of his

cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it. {6:10} And on the

eighth day he shall bring two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, to

the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting: {6:11} and the priest

shall offer one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering,

and make atonement for him, for that he sinned by reason of the dead,

and shall hallow his head that same day. {6:12} And he shall separate

unto Yehovah the days of his separation, and shall bring a he-lamb a

year old for a trespass-offering; but the former days shall be void,

because his separation was defiled.

 

   {6:13} And this is the law of the Nazirite, when the days of his

separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tent

of meeting: {6:14} and he shall offer his oblation unto Yehovah, one

he-lamb a year old outside blemish for a burnt-offering, and one

ewe-lamb a year old outside blemish for a sin-offering, and one ram

outside blemish for peace-offerings, {6:15} and a basket of unleavened

bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers

anointed with oil, and their meal-offering, and their drink-offerings.

{6:16} And the priest shall present them before Yehovah, and shall

offer his sin-offering, and his burnt-offering: {6:17} and he shall

offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Yehovah, with the

basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also the

meal-offering there, and the drink-offering there. {6:18} And the

Nazirite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of the tent

of meeting, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation, and

put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of peace-offerings.

{6:19} And the priest shall take the boiled 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 Nazirite, after he has shaven

[the head of] his separation; {6:20} and the priest shall wave them for

a wave-offering before Yehovah; this is holy for the priest, together

with the wave-breast and heave-thigh: and after that the Nazirite may

drink wine.

 

   {6:21} This is the law of the Nazirite who vows, [and of] his

oblation unto Yehovah for his separation, besides that which he is able

to get: according to his vow which he vowed, so he must do after the

law of his separation.

 

   {6:22} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {6:23} Speak unto Aaron

and unto his sons, saying, On this wise you shall bless the children of

Israel: you shall say unto them,

 

   {6:24} Yehovah bless you, and keep you:

 

   {6:25} Yehovah make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious

unto you:

 

   {6:26} Yehovah lift up his countenance upon you, and give you

peace.

 

   {6:27} So shall they put my name upon the children of Israel; and I

will bless them.

 

 

O4)7

   {7:1} And it came to pass on the day that Moses had made an end of

setting up the tabernacle, and had anointed it and sanctified it, and

all the furniture there, and the altar and all the vessels there,

and had anointed them and sanctified them; {7:2} that the princes of

Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, offered. These were the

princes of the tribes, these are they that were over them that were

numbered: {7:3} and they brought their oblation before Yehovah, six

covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for every two of the princes,

and for each one an ox: and they presented them before the tabernacle.

{7:4} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {7:5} Take it of them, that

they may be [used] in doing the service of the tent of meeting; and

you shall give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his

service. {7:6} And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them

unto the Levites. {7:7} Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons

of Gershon, according to their service: {7:8} 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. {7:9} But unto

the sons of Kohas he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary

belonged unto them; they bare it upon their shoulders. {7:10} And the

princes offered for the dedication of the altar in the day that it was

anointed, even the princes offered their oblation before the altar.

{7:11} And Yehovah said unto Moses, They shall offer their oblation,

each prince on his day, for the dedication of the altar.

   {7:89} And when Moses went into the tent of meeting to speak with

him, then he heard the Voice speaking unto him from above the

mercy-seat that was upon the ark of the testimony, from between the two

cherubim: and he spoke unto him.

 

 

O4)8

   {8:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {8:2} Speak unto Aaron,

and say unto him, When you lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall

give light in front of the candlestick. {8:3} And Aaron did so; he

lighted the lamps of it[so as to give light] in front of the

candlestick, as Yehovah commanded Moses. {8:4} And this was the work of

the candlestick, beaten work of gold; unto the base there, [and] unto

the flowers there, it was beaten work: according unto the pattern

which Yehovah had showed Moses, so he made the candlestick.

 

   {8:5} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {8:6} Take the Levites

from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them. {8:7} And thus

shall you do unto them, to cleanse them: sprinkle the water of

expiation upon them, and let them cause a razor to pass over all their

flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and cleanse themselves. {8:8}

Then let them take a young bullock, and its meal-offering, fine flour

mingled with oil; and another young bullock shall you take for a

sin-offering. {8:9} And you shall present the Levites before the tent

of meeting: and you shall assemble the whole congregation of the

children of Israel: {8:10} and you shall present the Levites before

Yehovah. And the children of Israel shall lay their hands upon the

Levites: {8:11} and Aaron shall offer the Levites before Yehovah for a

wave-offering, on the behalf of the children of Israel, that it may be

theirs to do the service of Yehovah. {8:12} And the Levites shall lay

their hands upon the heads of the bullocks: and offer you the one for

a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering, unto Yehovah, to

make atonement for the Levites. {8:13} And you shall set the Levites

before Aaron, and before his sons, and offer them for a wave-offering

unto Yehovah.

 

   {8:14} Thus shall you 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 tent of meeting: and you

shall cleanse them, and offer them for a wave-offering. {8:16} For they

are wholly given unto me from among the children of Israel; instead of

all that opens the womb, even the first-born of all the children of

Israel, have I taken them unto me. {8:17} For all the first-born among

the children of Israel are mine, both man and beast: on the day that I

smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt I sanctified them for

myself. {8:18} And I have taken the Levites instead of all the

first-born among 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 tent of

meeting, and to make atonement for the children of Israel; that there

be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel

come near unto the sanctuary.

 

   {8:20} Thus did Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the

children of Israel, unto the Levites: according unto all that Yehovah

commanded Moses touching the Levites, so did the children of Israel

unto them. {8:21} And the Levites purified themselves from sin, and

they washed their clothes: and Aaron offered them for a wave-offering

before Yehovah; and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them.

{8:22} And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the

tent of meeting before Aaron, and before his sons: as Yehovah had

commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.

 

   {8:23} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {8:24} This is that

which belongs unto the Levites: from twenty and five years old and

upward they shall go in to wait upon the service in the work of the

tent of meeting: {8:25} and from the age of fifty years they shall

cease waiting upon the work, and shall serve no more, {8:26} but shall

minister with their brethren in the tent of meeting, to keep the

charge, and shall do no service. Thus shall you do unto the Levites

touching their charges.

 

 

O4)9

   {9:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in

the first Moon of the second year after they were come out of the land

of Egypt, saying, {9:2} Also, let the children of Israel keep the

Passover in its appointed season. {9:3} In the fourteenth day of this

Moon [Abib], at even, you shall keep it in its appointed season: according to

all the statutes of it, and according to all the ordinances there,

shall you keep it. {9:4} And Moses spoke unto the children of Israel,

that they should keep the Passover. {9:5} And they kept the Passover in

the first [Moon], on the fourteenth day of the Moon, at even, in the

wilderness of Sinai: according to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so

did the children of Israel. {9:6} And there were certain men, who were

unclean by reason of the dead body of a man, so that they could not

keep the Passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before

Aaron on that day: {9:7} and those men said unto him, We are unclean by

reason of the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we

may not offer the oblation of Yehovah in its appointed season among the

children of Israel? {9:8} And Moses said unto them, Stay you, that I may

hear what Yehovah will command concerning you.

 

   {9:9} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {9:10} Speak unto the

children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your generations

shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be on a journey afar off,

yet he shall keep the Passover unto Yehovah. {9:11} In the second Moon

on the fourteenth day at even they shall keep it; they shall eat it

with unleavened bread and bitter herbs: {9:12} they shall leave none of

it unto the morning, nor break a bone there: according to all the

statute of the Passover they shall keep it. {9:13} But the man that is

clean, and is not on a journey, and forbears to keep the Passover,

that soul shall be cut off from his people; because he offered not the

oblation of Yehovah in its appointed season, that man shall bear his

sin. {9:14} And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep

the Passover unto Yehovah; according to the statute of the Passover,

and according to the ordinance there, so shall he do: you shall have

one statute, both for the sojourner, and for him that is born in the

land.

 

   {9:15} And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud

covered the tabernacle, even the tent of the testimony: and at even it

was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until

morning. {9:16} So it was always: the cloud covered it, and the

appearance of fire by night. {9:17} And whenever the cloud was taken up

from over the Tent, then after that the children of Israel journeyed:

and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel

encamped. {9:18} At the commandment of Yehovah the children of Israel

journeyed, and at the commandment of Yehovah they encamped: as long as

the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they remained encamped. {9:19} And

when the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle many days, then the children

of Israel kept the charge of Yehovah, and journeyed not. {9:20} And

sometimes the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; then according

to the commandment of Yehovah they remained encamped, and according to

the commandment of Yehovah they journeyed. {9:21} And sometimes the

cloud was from evening until morning; and when the cloud was taken up

in the morning, they journeyed: or [if it continued] by day and by

night, when the cloud was taken up, they journeyed. {9:22} Whether it

were two days, or a Moon, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the

tabernacle, abiding thereon, the children of Israel remained encamped,

and journeyed not; but when it was taken up, they journeyed. {9:23} At

the commandment of Yehovah they encamped, and at the commandment of

Yehovah they journeyed: they kept the charge of Yehovah, at the

commandment of Yehovah by Moses.

 

 

O4)10

   {10:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {10:2} Make you two

trumpets of silver; of beaten work shall you make them: and you shall

use them for the calling of the congregation, and for the journeying of

the camps. {10:3} And when they shall blow them, all the congregation

shall gather themselves unto you at the door of the tent of meeting.

{10:4} And if they blow but one, then the princes, the heads of the

thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto you. {10:5} And when

you blow an alarm, the camps that lie on the east side shall take their

journey. {10:6} And when you blow an alarm the second time, 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 assembly is to be

gathered together, you shall blow, but you shall not sound an alarm.

{10:8} And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; and

they shall be to you for a statute for ever throughout your

generations. {10:9} And when you go to war in your land against the

adversary that oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the

trumpets; and you shall be remembered before Yehovah your God, and you

shall be saved from your enemies. {10:10} Also in the day of your

gladness, and in your set feasts, and in the beginnings of your Moons,

you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt-offerings, and over the

sacrifices of your peace-offerings; and they shall be to you for a

memorial before your God: I am Yehovah your God.

 

   {10:11} And it came to pass in the second year, in the second Moon,

on the twentieth day of the Moon, that the cloud was taken up from

over the tabernacle of the testimony. {10:12} And the children of

Israel set forward according to their journeys out of the wilderness of

Sinai; and the cloud abode in the wilderness of Paran. {10:13} And they

first took their journey according to the commandment of Yehovah by

Moses. {10:14} And in the first [place] the standard of the camp of the

children of Judah set forward according to their hosts: 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 Nethanel 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, who bare the tabernacle, set

forward. {10:18} And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward

according to their hosts: 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 Kohasites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and

[the others] did set up the tabernacle against their coming. {10:22}

And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward

according to their hosts: 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, which

was the rearward of all the camps, set forward according to their

hosts: and over his host was Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. {10:26}

And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the

son of Ochran. {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

nomadic travels of the children of Israel according to their hosts; and

they set forward.

 

   {10:29} And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Reuel the Midianite,

Moses' father-in-law, We are journeying unto the place of which Yehovah

said, I will give it you: come you with us, and we will do you good;

for Yehovah has spoken good concerning Israel. {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 you; forasmuch as

you know how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and you shall be

to us instead of eyes. {10:32} And it shall be, if you go with us,

behold, it shall be, that what good so ever Yehovah shall do unto us, the

same will we do unto you.

 

   {10:33} And they set forward from the mount of Yehovah three days'

journey; and the ark of the covenant of Yehovah went before them three

days' journey, to seek out a resting-place for them. {10:34} And the

cloud of Yehovah was over them by day, when they set forward from the

camp. {10:35} And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses

said, Rise up, O Yehovah, and let your enemies be scattered; and let

them that hate you flee before you. {10:36} And when it rested, he

said, Return, O Yehovah, unto the ten thousands of the thousands of

Israel.

 

 

O4)11

   {11:1} And the people were as complainers, [speaking] evil in the ears

of Yehovah: and when Yehovah heard it, his anger was kindled; and the

fire of Yehovah burnt among them, and devoured in the uttermost part of

the camp. {11:2} And the people cried unto Moses; and Moses prayed unto

Yehovah, and the fire abated. {11:3} And the name of that place was

called Taberah, because the fire of Yehovah burnt among them.

 

   {11:4} And the mixed multitude that was among them lusted

exceedingly: 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 for nothing; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks,

and the onions, and the garlic: {11:6} but now our soul is dried away;

there is nothing at all save this manna to look upon. {11:7} And the

manna was like coriander seed, and the appearance of it as the

appearance of bdellium. {11:8} The people went about, and gathered it,

and ground it in mills, or beat it in mortars, and boiled it in pots,

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} And Moses heard the people weeping throughout

their families, every man at the door of his tent: and the anger of

Yehovah was kindled greatly; and Moses was displeased. {11:11} And

Moses said unto Yehovah, Wherefore have you dealt ill with your

servant? and wherefore have I not found favor in your sight, that you

lay the burden of all this people upon me? {11:12} Have I conceived

all this people? have I brought them forth, that you should say

unto me, Carry them in your bosom, as a nursing-father carries the

sucking child, unto the land which you swear unto their fathers?

{11:13} Where 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 you deal thus with me, kill me, I pray you, out of

hand, if I have found favor in your sight; and let me not see my

wretchedness.

 

   {11:16} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of

the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people,

and officers over them; and bring them unto the tent of meeting, that

they may stand there with you. {11:17} And I will come down and talk

with you there: and I will take of the Spirit which is upon you, and

will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people

with you, that you bear it not yourself alone. {11:18} And say you

unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to-morrow, and you shall

eat flesh; for you have wept in the ears of Yehovah, saying, Who shall

give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore

Yehovah will give you flesh, and you shall eat. {11:19} you shall not eat

one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty

days, {11:20} but a whole Moon, until it come out at your nostrils,

and it be loathsome unto you; because that you have rejected Yehovah who

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 you have said, I will give them flesh,

that they may eat a whole Moon. {11:22} shall flocks and 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 Yehovah said

unto Moses, Is Yehovah's hand waxed short? now shall you see whether

my word shall come to pass unto you or not.

 

   {11:24} And Moses went out, and told the people the words of

Yehovah: and he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people, and

set them round about the Tent. {11:25} And Yehovah came down in the

cloud, and spoke unto him, and took of the Spirit that was upon him,

and put it upon the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the

Spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but they did so no more.

 

   {11:26} But there remained two 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 had not gone out

unto the Tent; 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 minister of Moses, one of

his chosen men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. {11:29}

And Moses said unto him, are you jealous for my sake? would that all

Yehovah's people were prophets, that Yehovah 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 Yehovah, and brought quails

from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, about a day's journey on

this side, and a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp,

and about two cubits above the face of the earth. {11:32} And the

people rose up all that day, and all the night, and all the next day,

and gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers:

and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp.

{11:33} While the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed,

the anger of Yehovah was kindled against the people, and Yehovah smote

the people with a very great plague. {11:34} And the name of that place

was called Kibrothhattaavah, because there they buried the people that

lusted. {11:35} From Kibrothhattaavah the people journeyed unto

Hazeroth; and they abode at Hazeroth.

 

 

O4)12

   {12:1} And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the

Cushite woman whom he had married; for he had married a Cushite woman.

{12:2} And they said, Has Yehovah indeed spoken only with Moses? has

he not spoken also with us? And Yehovah heard it. {12:3} Now the man

Moses was very meek, above all the men that were upon the face of the

earth.

 

   {12:4} And Yehovah spoke suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and

unto Miriam, Come out you three unto the tent of meeting. And they three

came out. {12:5} And Yehovah came down in a pillar of cloud, and stood

at the door of the Tent, 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 Yehovah will make myself known unto him in a

vision, I will speak with him in a dream. {12:7} My servant Moses is

not so; he is faithful in all my house: {12:8} with him will I speak

mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the form

of Yehovah shall he behold: wherefore then were you not afraid to speak

against my servant, against Moses?

 

   {12:9} And the anger of Yehovah was kindled against them; and he

departed. {12:10} And the cloud removed from over the Tent; and,

behold, Miriam was leprous, as [white as] snow: and Aaron looked upon

Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous. {12:11} And Aaron said unto

Moses, Oh, my lord, lay not, I pray you, sin upon us, for that we have

done foolishly, and for that we have sinned. {12:12} Let her not, I

pray, be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes

out of his mother's womb. {12:13} And Moses cried unto Yehovah, saying,

Heal her, O God, I ask you. {12:14} And Yehovah said unto Moses,

If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven

days? let her be shut up outside the camp seven days, and after that

she shall be brought in again. {12:15} And Miriam was shut up outside

the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was

brought in again.

 

   {12:16} And afterward the people journeyed from Hazeroth, and

encamped in the wilderness of Paran.

 

 

 

 O4)13  {13:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {13:2} Send you men,

that they may spy out the land of Canaan, which I give unto the

children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall you send a

man, every one a prince among them. {13:3} And Moses sent them from the

wilderness of Paran according to the commandment of Yehovah: all of

them men who 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 of Jephunneh. {13:7} Of the tribe of

Issachar, Igal the son of Joseph. {13:8} Of the tribe of Ephraim,

Hoshea the son of Nun. {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 of

Gemalli. {13:13} Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael.

{13:14} Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi. {13:15} Of

the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. {13:16} These are the names

of the men that Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Hoshea

the son of Nun Joshua.

 

   {13:17} And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said

unto them, Get you up this way by the South, and go up into the

hill-country: {13:18} and see the land, what it is; and the people that

dwell therein, whether they are strong or weak, whether they are few or

many; {13:19} and what the land is that they dwell in, whether it is

good or bad; and what cities they are that they dwell in, whether in

camps, or in strongholds; {13:20} and what the land is, whether it is

fat or lean, whether there is wood therein, or not. And be you of good

courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time was the time

of the first-ripe grapes.

 

   {13:21} So they went up, and spied out the land from the wilderness

of Zin unto Rehob, to the entrance of Hamath. {13:22} And they went up

by the South, and came unto Hebron; and Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai,

the children of Anak, were there. (Now Hebron was built seven years

before Zoan in Egypt.) {13:23} And they came unto the valley of Eshcol,

and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they

bare it upon a staff between two; [they brought] also of the

pomegranates, and of the figs. {13:24} That place was called the valley

of Eshcol, because of the cluster which the children of Israel cut down

from there.

 

   {13:25} And they returned from spying out the land at the end of

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 showed them the fruit of the land. {13:27} And they

told him, and said, We came unto the land where you sentest us; and

surely it flows with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.

{13:28} Howbeit the people that dwell in the land are strong, and the

cities are fortified, [and] very great: and we also saw the

children of Anak there. {13:29} Amalek dwells in the land of the

South: and the Hittite, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, dwell in the

hill-country; and the Canaanite dwells by the sea, and along by the

side of the 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 are 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 spied out unto the

children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to spy

it out, is a land that eats up the inhabitants there; and all the

people that we saw in it are men of great stature. {13:33} And there we

saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who come of the Nephilim: and we

were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

 

 

O4)14

   {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 that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would

that we had died in this wilderness! {14:3} And wherefore does Yehovah

bring us unto this land, to fall by the sword? Our wives and our little

ones will 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 Israel.

{14:6} And Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who

were of them that spied out the land, rent their clothes: {14:7} and

they spoke unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying,

The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good

land. {14:8} If Yehovah delight in us, then he will bring us into this

land, and give it unto us; a land which flows with milk and honey.

{14:9} Only rebel not against Yehovah, neither fear you the people of

the land; for they are bread for us: their defense is removed from over

them, and Yehovah is with us: fear them not. {14:10} But all the

congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of Yehovah

appeared in the tent of meeting unto all the children of Israel.

 

   {14:11} And Yehovah said unto Moses, How long will this people

despise me? and how long will they not believe in me, for all the signs

which I have wrought among them? {14:12} I will smite them with the

pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of you a nation greater

and mightier than they.

 

   {14:13} And Moses said unto Yehovah, Then the Egyptians will hear

it; for you brought up this people in your might from among them;

{14:14} and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They

have heard that you Yehovah are in the midst of this people; for you

Yehovah are seen face to face, and your cloud stands over them, and

you go before them, in a pillar of cloud by day, and in a pillar of

fire by night. {14:15} Now if you shall kill this people as one man,

then the nations which have heard the fame of you will speak, saying,

{14:16} Because Yehovah was not able to bring this people into the land

which he swore unto them, therefore he has slain them in the

wilderness. {14:17} And now, I pray you, let the power of the Lord be

great, according as you have spoken, saying, {14:18} Yehovah is slow

to anger, and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving works without law and

transgression of the law; and that will by no means clear [the guilty], visiting

the works without law of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon

the fourth generation. {14:19} Pardon, I pray you, the works without law of

this people according unto the greatness of your loving kindness, and

according as you have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

 

   {14:20} And Yehovah said, I have pardoned according to your word:

{14:21} but in very deed, as I live, and as all the earth shall be

filled with the glory of Yehovah; {14:22} because all those men that

have seen my glory, and my signs, which I wrought in Egypt and in the

wilderness, yet have tempted me these ten times, and have not heard

to my voice; {14:23} surely they shall not see the land which I swore

unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that despised me see it:

{14:24} but my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him,

and has followed me fully, him will I bring into the land where into he

went; and his seed shall possess it. {14:25} Now the Amalekite and the

Canaanite dwell in the valley: to-morrow turn you, and get you into the

wilderness by the way to the Red Sea.

 

   {14:26} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {14:27}

How long [shall I bear] with this evil congregation, that murmur

against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel,

which they murmur against me. {14:28} Say unto them, As I live, said

Yehovah, surely as you have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

{14:29} your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that

were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years

old and upward, that have murmured against me, {14:30} surely you shall

not come into the land, concerning which I swore that I would make you

dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of

Nun. {14:31} But your little ones, that you said should be a prey, them

will I bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected.

{14:32} But as for you, your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness.

{14:33} And your children shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty

years, and shall bear your whoredoms, until your dead bodies be

consumed in the wilderness. {14:34} After the number of the days in

which you spied out the land, even forty days, for every day a year,

shall you bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you shall know my

alienation. {14:35} I, Yehovah, have spoken, surely this will I do unto

all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in

this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

 

   {14:36} And the men, whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who

returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by

bringing up an evil report against the land, {14:37} even those men

that did bring up an evil report of the land, died by the plague before

Yehovah. {14:38} But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of

Jephunneh, remained alive of those men that went to spy out the land.

 

   {14:39} And Moses told these words unto all the children of Israel:

and the people grieveed greatly. {14:40} And they rose up early in the

morning, and gat them up to the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we are

here, and will go up unto the place which Yehovah has promised: for we

have sinned. {14:41} And Moses said, Wherefore now do you transgress the

commandment of Yehovah, seeing it shall not prosper? {14:42} Go not up,

for Yehovah is not among you; that you be not smitten down before your

enemies. {14:43} For there the Amalekite and the Canaanite are before

you, and you shall fall by the sword: because you are turned back from

following Yehovah, therefore Yehovah will not be with you. {14:44} But

they presumed to go up to the top of the mountain: nevertheless the ark

of the covenant of Yehovah, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

{14:45} Then the Amalekite came down, and the Canaanite who dwelt in

that mountain, and smote them and beat them down, even unto Hormah.

 

 

O4)15

   {15:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {15:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, When you are come into the land

of your habitations, which I give unto you, {15:3} and will make an

offering by fire unto Yehovah, a burnt-offering, or a sacrifice, to

accomplish a vow, or as a freewill-offering, or in your set feasts, to

make a sweet savor unto Yehovah, of the herd, or of the flock; {15:4}

then shall he that offers his oblation offer unto Yehovah a

meal-offering of a tenth part [of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with

the fourth part of a hin of oil: {15:5} and wine for the

drink-offering, the fourth part of a hin, shall you prepare with the

burnt-offering, or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. {15:6} Or for a

ram, you shall prepare for a meal-offering two tenth parts [of an

ephah] of fine flour mingled with the third part of a hin of oil:

{15:7} and for the drink-offering you shall offer the third part of a

hin of wine, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah. {15:8} And when you

prepare a bullock for a burnt-offering, or for a sacrifice, to

accomplish a vow, or for peace-offerings unto Yehovah; {15:9} then

shall he offer with the bullock a meal-offering of three tenth parts

[of an ephah] of fine flour mingled with half a hin of oil: {15:10} and

you shall offer for the drink-offering half a hin of wine, for an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

 

   {15:11} Thus shall it be done for each bullock, or for each ram, or

for each of the he-lambs, or of the kids. {15:12} According to the

number that you shall prepare, so shall you do to every one according to

their number. {15:13} All that are home-born shall do these things

after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet

savor unto Yehovah. {15:14} And if a stranger sojourn with you, or

anyone who may be among you throughout your generations, and will offer

an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah; as you do, so

he shall do. {15:15} For the assembly, there shall be one statute for

you, and for the stranger that sojourns [with you], a statute for

ever throughout your generations: as you are, so shall the sojourner be

before Yehovah. {15:16} One law and one ordinance shall be for you, and

for the stranger that sojourns with you.

 

   {15:17} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {15:18} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and say unto them, When you come into the land

where I bring you, {15:19} then it shall be, that, when you eat of the

bread of the land, you shall offer up a heave-offering unto Yehovah.

{15:20} Of the first of your dough you shall offer up a cake for a

heave-offering: as the heave-offering of the threshing-floor, so shall

you heave it. {15:21} Of the first of your dough you shall give unto

Yehovah a heave-offering throughout your generations.

 

   {15:22} And when you shall err, and not observe all these

commandments, which Yehovah has spoken unto Moses, {15:23} even all

that Yehovah has commanded you by Moses, from the day that Yehovah

gave commandment, and onward throughout your generations; {15:24} then

it shall be, if it be done unwittingly, outside the knowledge of the

congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock

for a burnt-offering, for a sweet savor unto Yehovah, with the

meal-offering there, and the drink-offering there, according to the

ordinance, and one he-goat for a sin-offering. {15:25} And the priest

shall make atonement for all the congregation of the children of

Israel, and they shall be forgiven; for it was an error, and they have

brought their oblation, an offering made by fire unto Yehovah, and

their sin-offering before Yehovah, for their error: {15:26} and all the

congregation of the children of Israel shall be forgiven, and the

stranger that sojourns among them; for in respect of all the people

it was done unwittingly.

 

   {15:27} And if one person sin unwittingly, then he shall offer a

she-goat a year old for a sin-offering. {15:28} And the priest shall

make atonement for the soul that sins, when he sins unwittingly,

before Yehovah, to make atonement for him; and he shall be forgiven.

{15:29} you shall have one law for him that does anything unwittingly, for

him that is home-born among the children of Israel, and for the

stranger that sojourns among them. {15:30} But the soul that does

anything with a high hand, whether he be home-born or a sojourner, the

same blasphemes Yehovah; and that soul shall be cut off from among his

people. {15:31} Because he has despised the word of Yehovah, and has

broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his

works without law shall be upon him.

 

   {15:32} And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness,

they found a man gathering sticks upon the Sabbath day. {15:33} And

they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron,

and unto all the congregation. {15:34} And they put him in ward,

because it had not been declared what should be done to him. {15:35}

And Yehovah said unto Moses, The man shall surely be put to death: all

the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp. {15:36}

And all the congregation brought him outside the camp, and stoned him

to death with stones; as Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {15:37} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {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 each border a cord of blue: {15:39} and it shall

be unto you for a fringe, that you may look upon it, and remember all

the commandments of Yehovah, and do them; and that you follow not after

your own heart and your own eyes, after which you use to play the

whore; {15:40} that you may remember and do all my commandments, and be

holy unto your God. {15:41} I am Yehovah your God, who brought you out

of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am Yehovah your God.

 

 

O4)16

   {16:1} Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohas, the son of

Levi, with 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 congregation, called to the assembly, men of renown;

{16:3} and they assembled themselves together against Moses and against

Aaron, and said unto them, you take too much upon you, seeing all the

congregation are holy, every one of them, and Yehovah is among them:

wherefore then lift you up yourselves above the assembly of Yehovah?

 

   {16:4} And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face: {16:5} and he

spoke unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, In the morning

Yehovah will show who are his, and who is holy, and will cause him to

come near unto him: even him whom he shall choose 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 in them, and put incense upon them before

Yehovah to-morrow: and it shall be that the man whom Yehovah does

choose, he [shall be] holy: you take too much upon you, you sons of Levi.

{16:8} And Moses said unto Korah, Hear now, you sons of Levi: {16:9}

[seems it but] a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel has

separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to

himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of Yehovah, and to stand

before the congregation to minister unto them; {16:10} and that he has

brought you near, and all your brethren the sons of Levi with you? and

seek you the priesthood also? {16:11} Therefore you and all your company

are gathered together against Yehovah: and Aaron, what is he that you

murmur against him?

 

   {16:12} And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab;

and they said, We will not come up: {16:13} is it a small thing that

you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey, to

kill us in the wilderness, but you must needs make yourself also a

prince over us? {16:14} Also, you have not brought us into a land

flowing with milk and honey, nor given us inheritance of fields and

vineyards: will you put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up.

 

   {16:15} And Moses was very wroth, and said unto Yehovah, Respect not

you 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 you and all

your company before Yehovah, you, and they, and Aaron, to-morrow:

{16:17} and take you every man his censer, and put incense upon them,

and bring you before Yehovah every man his censer, two hundred and fifty

censers; you also, and Aaron, each his censer. {16:18} And they took

every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon,

and stood at the door of the tent of meeting with Moses and Aaron.

{16:19} And Korah assembled all the congregation against them unto the

door of the tent of meeting: and the glory of Yehovah appeared unto all

the congregation.

 

   {16:20} And Yehovah spoke 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 will

you be wroth with all the congregation? {16:23} And Yehovah spoke unto

Moses, saying, {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 spoke unto the

congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these

wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all

their sins. {16:27} So they gat them up from the tabernacle of Korah,

Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and

stood at the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and

their little ones. {16:28} And Moses said, Hereby you shall know that

Yehovah has 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

Yehovah has not sent me. {16:30} But if Yehovah make a new thing, and

the ground open its mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain

unto them, and they go down alive into Sheol; then you shall understand

that these men have despised Yehovah.

 

   {16:31} And it came to pass, as he made an end of speaking all these

words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them; {16:32} and

the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, and their

households, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their

goods. {16:33} So they, and all that appertained to them, went down

alive into Sheol: and the earth closed upon them, and they perished

from among the assembly. {16:34} And all Israel that were round about

them fled at the cry of them; for they said, Lest the earth swallow us

up. {16:35} And fire came forth from Yehovah, and devoured the two

hundred and fifty men that offered the incense.

 

   {16:36} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {16:37} Speak unto

Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of

the burning, and scatter you the fire yonder; for they are holy,

{16:38} even the censers of these sinners against their own lives; and

let them be made beaten plates for a covering of the altar: for they

offered them before Yehovah; therefore they are holy; and they shall be

a sign unto the children of Israel. {16:39} And Eleazar the priest took

the brazen censers, which they that were burnt had offered; and they

beat them out for a covering of the altar, {16:40} to be a memorial

unto the children of Israel, to the end that no stranger, that is not

of the seed of Aaron, come near to burn incense before Yehovah; that he

be not as Korah, and as his company: as Yehovah spoke unto him by Moses.

 

   {16:41} But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of

Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, you have killed

the people of Yehovah. {16:42} And it came to pass, when the

congregation was assembled against Moses and against Aaron, that they

looked toward the tent of meeting: and, behold, the cloud covered it,

and the glory of Yehovah appeared. {16:43} And Moses and Aaron came to

the front of the tent of meeting. {16:44} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses,

saying, {16:45} Get you up from among this congregation, that I may

consume them in a moment. And they fell upon their faces. {16:46} And

Moses said unto Aaron, Take they censer, and put fire therein from off

the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly unto the

congregation, and make atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out

from Yehovah; the plague is begun. {16:47} And Aaron took as Moses

spoke, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and, behold, the plague

was begun among the people: and he put on the incense, and made

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 by the

plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides them that died

about the matter of Korah. {16:50} And Aaron returned unto Moses unto

the door of the tent of meeting: and the plague was stayed.

 

 

O4)17

   {17:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {17:2} Speak unto the

children of Israel, and take of them rods, one for each fathers' house,

of all their princes according to their fathers' houses, twelve rods:

write you every man's name upon his rod. {17:3} And you shall write

Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi; for there shall be one rod for each

head of their fathers' houses. {17:4} And you shall lay them up in the

tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you. {17:5} And

it shall come to pass, that the rod of the man whom I shall choose

shall bud: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the

children of Israel, which they murmur against you. {17:6} And Moses

spoke unto the children of Israel; and all their princes gave him rods,

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 Yehovah in the tent of the testimony.

 

   {17:8} And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses went into the

tent of the testimony; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of

Levi was budded, and put forth buds, and produced blossoms, and bare

ripe almonds. {17:9} And Moses brought out all the rods from before

Yehovah unto all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took

every man his rod. {17:10} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Put back the

rod of Aaron before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the

children of rebellion; that you may make an end of their murmurings

against me, that they die not. {17:11} Thus did Moses: as Yehovah

commanded him, so did he.

 

   {17:12} And the children of Israel spoke unto Moses, saying, Behold,

we perish, we are undone, we are all undone. {17:13} Every one that

comes near, that comes near unto the tabernacle of Yehovah, dies:

shall we perish all of us?

 

 

O4)18

   {18:1} And Yehovah said unto Aaron, you and your sons and your

fathers' house with you shall bear the works without law of the sanctuary; and

you and your sons with you shall bear the works without law of your priesthood.

{18:2} And your brethren also, the tribe of Levi, the tribe of your

father, bring you near with you, that they may be joined unto you,

and minister unto you: but you and your sons with you shall be before

the tent of the testimony. {18:3} And they shall keep your charge, and

the charge of all the Tent: only they shall not come near unto the

vessels of the sanctuary and unto the altar, that they die not, neither

they, nor you. {18:4} And they shall be joined unto you, and keep the

charge of the tent of meeting, for all the service of the Tent: and a

stranger shall not come near unto you. {18:5} And you shall keep the

charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar; that there be

wrath no more upon the children of Israel. {18:6} And I, behold, I have

taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to

you they are a gift, given unto Yehovah, to do the service of the tent

of meeting. {18:7} And you and your sons with you shall keep your

priesthood for everything of the altar, and for that within the veil;

and you shall serve: I give you the priesthood as a service of gift: and

the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.

 

   {18:8} And Yehovah spoke unto Aaron, And I, behold, I have given

you the charge of my heave-offerings, even all the hallowed things of

the children of Israel; unto you have I given them by reason of the

anointing, and to your sons, as a portion for ever. {18:9} This shall be

your of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire: every oblation

of theirs, even every meal-offering of theirs, and every sin-offering

of theirs, and every trespass-offering of theirs, which they shall

render unto me, shall be most holy for you and for your sons. {18:10}

As the most holy things shall you eat there; every male shall eat

there: it shall be holy unto you. {18:11} And this is your: the

heave-offering of their gift, even all the wave-offerings of the

children of Israel; I have given them unto you, and to your sons and to

your daughters with you, as a portion for ever; every one that is clean

in your house shall eat there. {18:12} All the best of the oil, and

all the best of the vintage, and of the grain, the first-fruits of them

which they give unto Yehovah, to you have I given them. {18:13} The

first-ripe fruits of all that is in their land, which they bring unto

Yehovah, shall be your; every one that is clean in your house shall eat

there. {18:14} Everything devoted in Israel shall be your. {18:15}

Everything that opens the womb, of all flesh which they offer unto

Yehovah, both of man and beast shall be your: nevertheless the

first-born of man shall you surely redeem, and the firstling of

unclean beasts shall you redeem. {18:16} And those that are to be

redeemed of them from a Moon old shall you redeem, according to your

estimation, for the money of five shekels, after the shekel of the

sanctuary (the same is twenty gerahs). {18:17} But the firstling of a

cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, you

shall not redeem; they are holy: you shall sprinkle their blood upon

the altar, and shall burn their fat for an offering made by fire, for a

sweet savor unto Yehovah. {18:18} And the flesh of them shall be your,

as the wave-breast and as the right thigh, it shall be your. {18:19}

All the heave-offerings of the holy things, which the children of

Israel offer unto Yehovah, have I given you, and your sons and your

daughters with you, as a portion for ever: it is a covenant of salt

for ever before Yehovah unto you and to your seed with you. {18:20}

And Yehovah said unto Aaron, you shall have no inheritance in their

land, neither shall you have any portion among them: I am your portion

and your inheritance among the children of Israel.

 

   {18:21} And unto the children of Levi, behold, I have given all the

tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in return for their service which

they serve, even the service of the tent of meeting. {18:22} And

from here on the children of Israel shall not come near the tent of

meeting, lest they bear sin, and die. {18:23} But the Levites shall do

the service of the tent of meeting, and they shall bear their works without law:

it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations; and among

the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. {18:24} For the

tithe of the children of Israel, which they offer as a heave-offering

unto Yehovah, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance: therefore

I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no

inheritance.

 

   {18:25} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {18:26} Again, you

shall speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When you take of the

children of Israel the tithe which I have given you from them for your

inheritance, then you shall offer up a heave-offering of it for Yehovah,

a tithe of the tithe. {18:27} And your heave-offering shall be reckoned

unto you, as though it were the grain of the threshing-floor, and as

the fullness of the winepress. {18:28} Thus you also shall offer a

heave-offering unto Yehovah of all your tithes, which you receive of the

children of Israel; and of it you shall give Yehovah's heave-offering

to Aaron the priest. {18:29} Out of all your gifts you shall offer every

heave-offering of Yehovah, of all the best there, even the hallowed

part of it out of it. {18:30} Therefore you shall say unto them,

When you heave the best of it from it, then it shall be reckoned unto

the Levites as the increase of the threshing-floor, and as the increase

of the wine-press. {18:31} And you shall eat it in every place, you and

your households: for it is your reward in return for your service in

the tent of meeting. {18:32} And you shall bear no sin by reason of it,

when you have heaved from it the best there: and you shall not profane

the holy things of the children of Israel, that you die not.

 

 

 

O4)19 

 {19:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, {19:2}

This is the statute of the law which Yehovah has commanded, saying,

Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring you a red heifer

outside spot, wherein is no blemish, [and] upon which never came yoke.

{19:3} And you shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, and he shall

bring her forth outside the camp, and one shall slay her before his

face: {19:4} and Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his

finger, and sprinkle her blood toward the front of the tent of meeting

seven times. {19:5} And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; her

skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:

{19:6} and the priest shall take cedar-wood, and hyssop, and scarlet,

and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer. {19:7} Then

the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in

water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the priest shall

be unclean until the even. {19:8} And he that burns her shall wash

his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be

unclean until the even. {19:9} And a man that is clean shall gather up

the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up outside the camp in a clean

place; and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of

Israel for a water for impurity: it is a sin-offering. {19:10} And he

that gathers the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be

unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel,

and unto the stranger that sojourns among them, for a statute for

ever.

 

   {19:11} He that touches the dead body of any man shall be unclean

seven days: {19:12} the same shall purify himself with on the

third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify

not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.

{19:13} Anyone who touches a dead person, the body of a man that has

died, and purifies not himself, defiles the tabernacle of Yehovah;

and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water for

impurity was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his

uncleanness is yet upon him.

 

   {19:14} This is the law when a man dies in a tent: every one that

comes into the tent, and every one that is in the tent, shall be

unclean seven days. {19:15} And every open vessel, which has no

covering bound upon it, is unclean. {19:16} And anyone who in the open

field touches one that is slain with a sword, or a dead body, or a

bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days. {19:17} And for

the unclean they shall take of the ashes of the burning of the

sin-offering; and running water shall be put thereto in a vessel:

{19:18} and a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip it in the water,

and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the

persons that were there, and upon him that touched the bone, or the

slain, or the dead, or the grave: {19:19} and the clean person shall

sprinkle upon the unclean on the third day, and on the seventh day: and

on the seventh day he shall purify him; and he shall wash his clothes,

and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean at even.

 

   {19:20} But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify

himself, that soul shall be cut off from the midst of the congregation,

because he has defiled the sanctuary of Yehovah: the water for

impurity has not been sprinkled upon him; he is unclean. {19:21} And

it shall be a perpetual statute unto them: and he that sprinkles the

water for impurity shall wash his clothes, and he that touches the

water for impurity shall be unclean until even. {19:22} And what so ever

the unclean person touches shall be unclean; and the soul that

touches it shall be unclean until even.

 

 

O4)20

   {20:1} And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, came

into the wilderness of Zin in the first Moon [Abib]: and the people abode in

Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there. {20:2} And there

was no water for the congregation: and they assembled themselves

together against Moses and against Aaron. {20:3} And the people strove

with Moses, and spoke, saying, Would that we had died when our brethren

died before Yehovah! {20:4} And why have you brought the assembly of

Yehovah into this wilderness, that we should die there, we and our

beasts? {20:5} And wherefore have you made us to come up out of Egypt,

to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of

figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to

drink.

 

{20:6} And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the

congregation unto the door of the tent of meeting, and fell upon their

faces: and the glory of Yehovah appeared unto them. {20:7} And Yehovah

spoke unto Moses, saying, {20:8} Take the rod, and call an Ekklesia of the

congregation, you, and Aaron your brother, and speak you unto the rock

before their eyes, that it give forth its water; and you shall bring

forth to them water out of the rock; so you shall give the

congregation and their cattle drink. {20:9} And Moses took the rod from

before Yehovah, as he commanded him.

 

   {20:10} And Moses and Aaron held an Ekklesia of the congregation together before

the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, you rebels; shall we bring

you forth water out of this rock? {20:11} And Moses lifted up his hand,

and smote the rock with his rod twice: and water came forth abundantly,

and the congregation drank, and their cattle. {20:12} And Yehovah said

unto Moses and Aaron, Because you believed not in me, to sanctify me in

the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this

assembly into the land which I have given them. {20:13} These are the

waters of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with Yehovah,

and he was sanctified in them.

 

   {20:14} And Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto the king of Edom,

Thus said your brother Israel, you know all the travail that has

befallen us: {20:15} how our fathers went down into Egypt, and we dwelt

in Egypt a long time; and the Egyptians dealt ill with us, and our

fathers: {20:16} and when we cried unto Yehovah, he heard our voice,

and sent an messenger, and brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we

are in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of your border. {20:17} Let us

pass, I pray you, through your land: we will not pass through field or

through vineyard, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we

will go along the king's highway; we will not turn aside to the right

hand nor to the left, until we have passed your border. {20:18} And Edom

said unto him, you shall not pass through me, lest I come out with the

sword against you. {20:19} And the children of Israel said unto him,

We will go up by the highway; and if we drink of your water, I and my

cattle, then will I give the price there: let me only, outside

[doing] anything [else], pass through on my feet. {20:20} And he said,

you shall not pass through. And Edom came out against him with much

people, and with a strong hand. {20:21} Thus Edom refused to give

Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel turned away from

him.

 

   {20:22} And they journeyed from Kadesh: and the children of Israel,

even the whole congregation, came unto mount Hor. {20:23} And Yehovah

spoke unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the border of the land of

Edom, saying, {20:24} Aaron shall be gathered unto his people; for he

shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of

Israel, because you rebelled against my word at the waters of Meribah.

{20:25} Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount

Hor; {20:26} and strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar

his son: and Aaron shall be gathered [unto his people], and shall die

there. {20:27} And Moses did as Yehovah commanded: and they went up

into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. {20:28} And Moses

stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and

Aaron died there on the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came

down from the mount. {20:29} And when all the congregation saw that

Aaron was dead, they wept for Aaron thirty days, even all the house of

Israel.

 

 

 

O4)21  

{21:1} And the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the South,

heard tell that Israel came by the way of Atharim; and he fought

against Israel, and took some of them captive. {21:2} And Israel vowed

a vow unto Yehovah, and said, If you will indeed deliver this people

into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities. {21:3} And

Yehovah heard the voice of Israel, and delivered up the

Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and the

name of the place was called Hormah.

 

   {21:4} And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way to the Red Sea,

to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much

discouraged because of the way. {21:5} And the people spoke against

God, and against Moses, Wherefore have you brought us up out of Egypt to

die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, and there is no water;

and our soul disgusts this light bread. {21:6} And Yehovah sent fiery

serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of

Israel died. {21:7} And the people came to Moses, and said, We have

sinned, because we have spoken against Yehovah, and against you; pray

unto Yehovah, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed

for the people. {21:8} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Make you a fiery

serpent, and set it upon a standard: and it shall come to pass, that

every one that is bitten, when he sees it, shall live. {21:9} And

Moses made a serpent of brass, and set it upon the standard: and it

came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked unto

the serpent of brass, he lived.

 

   {21:10} And the children of Israel journeyed, and encamped in Oboth.

{21:11} And they journeyed from Oboth, and encamped at Ibeholdbarim, in

the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sun rising. {21:12} From

there they journeyed, and encamped in the valley of Zered. {21:13}

From there they journeyed, and encamped on the other side of the

Arnon, which is in the wilderness, that comes out of the border of the

Amorites: for the Arnon is the border of Moab, between Moab and the

Amorites. {21:14} Wherefore it is said in the book of the Wars of

Yehovah,

Vaheb in Suphah,

And the valleys of the Arnon,

{21:15} And the slope of the valleys

That inclines toward the dwelling of Ar,

And leans upon the border of Moab.

 

   {21:16} And from there [they journeyed] to Beer: that is the well

where Yehovah said unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will

give them water.

 

   {21:17} Then sang Israel this song:

Spring up, O well; sing you unto it:

{21:18} The well, which the princes dug,

Which the nobles of the people delved,

With the Scepter, [and] with their staves.

 

   And from the wilderness [they journeyed] to Mattanah; {21:19} and

from Mattanah to Nahaliel; and from Nahaliel to Bamoth; {21:20} and

from Bamoth to the valley that is in the field of Moab, to the top of

Pisgah, which looks down upon the desert.

 

   {21:21} And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites,

saying, {21:22} Let me pass through your land: we will not turn aside

into field, or into vineyard; we will not drink of the water of the

wells: we will go by the king's highway, until we have passed your

border. {21:23} And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his

border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out

against Israel into the wilderness, and came to Jahaz; and he fought

against Israel. {21:24} And Israel smote him with the edge of the

sword, and possessed his land from the Arnon unto the Jabbok, even unto

the children of Ammon; for the border of the children of Ammon was

strong. {21:25} And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in

all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the towns

there. {21:26} For Heshbon was the city of Sihon the king of the

Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all

his land out of his hand, even unto the Arnon. {21:27} Wherefore they

that speak in proverbs say,

Come you to Heshbon;

Let the city of Sihon be built and established:

{21:28} For a fire is gone out of Heshbon,

A flame from the city of Sihon:

It has devoured Ar of Moab,

The lords of the high places of the Arnon.

{21:29} A curse to you, Moab!

you are undone, O people of Chemosh:

He has given his sons as fugitives,

And his daughters into captivity,

Unto Sihon king of the Amorites.

{21:30} We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon,

And we have laid waste even unto Nophah,

Which [reaches] unto Medeba.

 

   {21:31} Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites. {21:32} And

Moses sent to spy out Jazer; and they took the towns there, and drove

out the Amorites that were there.

 

   {21:33} And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the

king of Bashan went out against them, he and all his people, to battle

at Edrei. {21:34} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have

delivered him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you

shall do to him as you did unto Sihon king of the Amorites, who

dwelt at Heshbon. {21:35} So they smote him, and his sons and all his

people, until there was none left him remaining: and they possessed his

land.

 

 

O4)22

   {22:1} And the children of Israel journeyed, and encamped in the

plains of Moab beyond the Jordan at Jericho.

 

   {22:2} And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to

the Amorites. {22:3} And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because

they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of

Israel. {22:4} And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now will this

multitude lick up all that is round about us, as the ox licks up the

grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at

that time. {22:5} And he sent messengers unto Balaam the son of Beor,

to Pethor, which is by the River, to the land of the children of his

people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from

Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over

against me. {22:6} Come now therefore, I pray you, curse me this

people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail,

that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land; for

I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse

is cursed.

 

   {22:7} And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with

the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and

spoke unto him the words of Balak. {22:8} And he said unto them, Lodge

here this night, and I will bring you word again, as Yehovah shall

speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam. {22:9} And

God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with you? {22:10}

And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, has

sent unto me, [saying], {22:11} Behold, the people that is come out of

Egypt, it covers the face of the earth: now, come curse me them;

peradventure I shall be able to fight against them, and shall drive

them out. {22:12} And God said unto Balaam, you shall not go with

them; you shall not curse the people; for they are blessed. {22:13}

And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak,

Get you into your land; for Yehovah refuses to give me leave to go

with you. {22:14} And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto

Balak, and said, Balaam refuses to come with us.

 

   {22:15} And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honorable

than they. {22:16} And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus said

Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray you, hinder you from

coming unto me: {22:17} for I will promote you unto very great honor,

and what so ever you say unto me I will do: come therefore, I pray

you, curse me this people. {22:18} And Balaam answered and said unto

the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver

and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of Yehovah my God, to do less or

more. {22:19} Now therefore, I pray you, tarry you also here this night,

that I may know what Yehovah will speak unto me more. {22:20} And God

came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men are come to

call you, rise up, go with them; but only the word which I speak unto

you, that shall you do.

 

   {22:21} And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and

went with the princes of Moab. {22:22} And God's anger was kindled

because he went; and the messenger of Yehovah placed himself in the way for

an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two

servants were with him. {22:23} And the ass saw the messenger of Yehovah

standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand; and the ass

turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote

the ass, to turn her into the way. {22:24} Then the messenger of Yehovah

stood in a narrow path between the vineyards, a wall being on this

side, and a wall on that side. {22:25} And the ass saw the messenger of

Yehovah, and she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's

foot against the wall: and he smote her again. {22:26} And the messenger of

Yehovah went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to

turn either to the right hand or to the left. {22:27} And the ass saw

the messenger of Yehovah, and she lay down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger

was kindled, and he smote the ass with his staff. {22:28} And Yehovah

opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done

unto you, that you have smitten me these three times? {22:29} And

Balaam said unto the ass, Because you have mocked me, I would there

were a sword in my hand, for now I had killed you. {22:30} And the ass

said unto Balaam, Am not I your ass, upon which you have ridden all

your life long unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto you? and he

said, Nay.

 

   {22:31} Then Yehovah opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the messenger

of Yehovah standing in the way, with his sword drawn in his hand; and

he bowed his head, and fell on his face. {22:32} And the messenger of

Yehovah said unto him, Wherefore have you smitten your ass these

three times? behold, I am come forth for an adversary, because your way

is perverse before me: {22:33} and the ass saw me, and turned aside

before me these three times: unless she had turned aside from me,

surely now I had even slain you, and saved her alive. {22:34} And

Balaam said unto the messenger of Yehovah, I have sinned; for I knew not

that you stood in the way against me: now therefore, if it

displease you, I will get me back again. {22:35} And the messenger of

Yehovah said unto Balaam, Go with the men; but only the word that I

shall speak unto you, that you shall speak. So Balaam went with the

princes of Balak.

 

   {22:36} And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to

meet him unto the City of Moab, which is on the border of the Arnon,

which is in the utmost part of the border. {22:37} And Balak said unto

Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto you to call you? wherefore

came you not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote you to honor?

{22:38} And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto you: have I now

any power at all to speak anything? the word that God puts in my

mouth, that shall I speak. {22:39} And Balaam went with Balak, and they

came unto Kiriath-huzoth. {22:40} And Balak sacrificed oxen and sheep,

and sent to Balaam, and to the princes that were with him.

 

   {22:41} And it came to pass in the morning, that Balak took Balaam,

and brought him up into the high places of Baal; and he saw from there

the utmost part of the people.

 

 

O4)23

   {23:1} And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and

prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams. {23:2} And Balak did as

Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on every altar a

bullock and a ram. {23:3} And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by your

burnt-offering, and I will go: peradventure Yehovah will come to meet

me; and what so ever he shows me I will tell you. And he went to a

bare height. {23:4} And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have

prepared the seven altars, and I have offered up a bullock and a ram on

every altar. {23:5} And Yehovah put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said,

Return unto Balak, and thus you shall speak. {23:6} And he returned

unto him, and, lo, he was standing by his burnt-offering, he, and all

the princes of Moab. {23:7} And he took up his parable, and said, From

Aram has Balak brought me, The king of Moab from the mountains of the

East: Come, curse me Jacob, And come, defy Israel. {23:8} How shall I

A curse, whom God has not cursed? And how shall I defy, whom Yehovah

has not defied? {23:9} For from the top of the rocks I see him, And

from the hills I behold him:

   Lo, it is a people that dwells alone, And shall not be reckoned

among the nations. {23:10} Who can count the dust of Jacob, Or number

the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the lawful worker, And

let my last end be like his! {23:11} And Balak said unto Balaam, What

have you done unto me? I took you to curse mine enemies, and, behold,

you have blessed them altogether. {23:12} And he answered and said,

Must I not take heed to speak that which Yehovah puts in my mouth?

 

   {23:13} And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray you, with me unto

another place, from where you may see them; you shall see but the

utmost part of them, and shall not see them all: and curse me them from

there. {23:14} And he took him into the field of Zophim, to the top of

Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered up a bullock and a ram on

every altar. {23:15} And he said unto Balak, Stand here by your

burnt-offering, while I meet [Yehovah] yonder. {23:16} And Yehovah met

Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and

thus shall you speak. {23:17} And he came to him, and, lo, he was

standing by his burnt-offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And

Balak said unto him, What has Yehovah spoken? {23:18} And he took up

his parable, and said,

Rise up, Balak, and hear;

Hear unto me, you son of Zippor:

{23:19} God is not a man, that he should lie,

Neither the son of man, that he should repent:

Has he said, and will he not do it?

Or has he spoken, and will he not make it good?

{23:20} Behold, I have received [commandment] to bless:

And he has blessed, and I cannot reverse it.

{23:21} He has not beheld works without law in Jacob;

Neither has he seen perverseness in Israel:

Yehovah his God is with him,

And the shout of a king is among them.

{23:22} God brings them forth out of Egypt;

He has as it were the strength of the wild-ox.

{23:23} Surely there is no enchantment with Jacob;

Neither is there any divination with Israel:

Now shall it be said of Jacob and of Israel,

What has God wrought!

{23:24} Behold, the people rises up as a lioness,

And as a lion does he lift himself up:

He shall not lie down until he eat of the prey,

And drink the blood of the slain.

 

   {23:25} And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor

bless them at all. {23:26} But Balaam answered and said unto Balak,

Told not I you, saying, All that Yehovah speak, that I must do?

{23:27} And Balak said unto Balaam, Come now, I will take you unto

another place; peradventure it will please God that you may curse

me them from there. {23:28} And Balak took Balaam unto the top of

Peor, that looks down upon the desert. {23:29} And Balaam said unto

Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bullocks

and seven rams. {23:30} And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered

up a bullock and a ram on every altar.

 

 

O4)24

   {24:1} And when Balaam saw that it pleased Yehovah to bless Israel,

he went not, as at the other times, to meet with enchantments, but he

set his face toward the wilderness. {24:2} And Balaam lifted up his

eyes, and he saw Israel dwelling according to their tribes; and the

Spirit of God came upon him. {24:3} And he took up his parable, and

said,

Balaam the son of Beor said,

And the man whose eye was closed said;

{24:4} He said, who hears the words of God,

Who sees the vision of the Almighty,

Falling down, and having his eyes open:

{24:5} How goodly are your tents, O Jacob,

Your tabernacles, O Israel!

{24:6} As valleys are they spread forth,

As gardens by the river-side,

As lign-aloes which Yehovah has planted,

As cedar-trees beside the waters.

{24:7} Water shall flow from his buckets,

And his seed shall be in many waters,

And his king shall be higher than Agag,

And his kingdom shall be exalted.

{24:8} God brings him forth out of Egypt;

He has as it were the strength of the wild-ox:

He shall eat up the nations his adversaries,

And shall break their bones in pieces,

And smite [them] through with his arrows.

{24:9} He couched, he lay down as a lion,

And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up?

Blessed be every one that blesses you,

And cursed be every one that curses you.

 

   {24:10} And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote

his hands together; and Balak said unto Balaam, I called you to curse

mine enemies, and, behold, you have altogether blessed them these

three times. {24:11} Therefore now flee you to your place: I thought to

promote you unto great honor; but, lo, Yehovah has kept you back

from honor. {24:12} And Balaam said unto Balak, Spoke I not also to your

messengers that you sentest unto me, saying, {24:13} If Balak would

give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word

of Yehovah, to do either good or bad of mine own mind; what Yehovah

speak, that will I speak? {24:14} And now, behold, I go unto my

people: come, [and] I will advertise you what this people shall do to

your people in the latter days. {24:15} And he took up his parable, and

said,

Balaam the son of Beor said,

And the man whose eye was closed said;

{24:16} He said, who hears the words of God,

And knows the knowledge of the Most High,

Who sees the vision of the Almighty,

Falling down, and having his eyes open:

{24:17} I see him, but not now;

I behold him, but not near:

There shall come forth a star out of Jacob,

And a Scepter shall rise out of Israel,

And shall smite through the corners of Moab,

And break down all the sons of tumult.

{24:18} And Edom shall be a possession,

Seir also shall be a possession, [who were] his enemies;

While Israel does valiantly.

{24:19} And out of Jacob shall one have dominion,

And shall destroy the remnant from the city.

 

   {24:20} And he looked on Amalek, and took up his parable, and said,

Amalek was the first of the nations;

But his latter end shall come to destruction.

 

   {24:21} And he looked on the Kenite, and took up his parable, and

said,

Strong is your dwelling-place,

And your nest is set in the rock.

{24:22} Nevertheless Kain shall be wasted,

Until Asshur shall carry you away captive.

 

   {24:23} And he took up his parable, and said,

Alas, who shall live when God do his?

{24:24} But ships [shall come] from the coast of Kittim,

And they shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber;

And he also shall come to destruction.

 

   {24:25} And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place; and

Balak also went his way.

 

 

O4)25

   {25:1} And Israel abode in Shittim; and the people began to play the

whore with the daughters of Moab: {25:2} for they called the people

unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the people did eat, and bowed

down to their gods. {25:3} And Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor:

and the anger of Yehovah was kindled against Israel. {25:4} And Yehovah

said unto Moses, Take all the chiefs of the people, and hang them up

unto Yehovah before the sun, that the fierce anger of Yehovah may turn

away from Israel. {25:5} And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay

you every one his men that have joined themselves unto Baal-peor.

 

   {25:6} And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought

unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the

sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, while they

were weeping at the door of the tent of meeting. {25:7} And when

Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he

rose up from the midst of the congregation, and took a spear in his

hand; {25:8} and he went after the man of Israel into the pavilion, and

thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through

her body. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel. {25:9}

And those that died by the plague were twenty and four thousand.

 

   {25:10} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {25:11} Phinehas, the

son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned my wrath away

from the children of Israel, in that he was jealous with my jealousy

among them, so that I consumed not the children of Israel in my

jealousy. {25:12} Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of

peace: {25:13} and it shall be unto him, and to his seed after him, the

covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was jealous for his

God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.

 

   {25:14} Now the name of the man of Israel that was slain, who was

slain with the Midianitish woman, was Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince

of a fathers' house among the Simeonites. {25:15} And the name of the

Midianitish woman that was slain was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was

head of the people of a fathers' house in Midian.

 

   {25:16} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {25:17} Vex the

Midianites, and smite them; {25:18} for they vex you with their wiles,

wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the

matter of Cozbi, the daughter of the prince of Midian, their sister,

who was slain on the day of the plague in the matter of Peor.

 

 

O4)26

   {26:1} And it came to pass after the plague, that Yehovah spoke unto

Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying, {26:2} Take

the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from twenty

years old and upward, by their fathers' houses, all that are able to go

forth to war in Israel. {26:3} And Moses and Eleazar the priest spoke

with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying,

{26:4} [Take the sum of the people], from twenty years old and upward;

as Yehovah commanded Moses and the children of Israel, that came forth

out of the land of Egypt.

These are that Dathan and Abiram, who were called of the congregation,

who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah,

when they strove against Yehovah, {26:10} and the earth opened its

mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company

died; what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men, and they

became a sign. {26:11} Notwithstanding, the sons of Korah died not.

families. {26:43} All the families of the Shuhamites, according to

those that were numbered of them, were threescore and four thousand and

four hundred.

 

   {26:44} The sons of Asher after their families: of Imnah, the family

of the Imnites; of Ishvi, the family of the Ishvites; of Beriah, the

family of the Berites. {26:45} Of the sons of Beriah: of Heber, the

family of the Heberites; of Malchiel, the family of the Malchielites.

{26:46} And the name of the daughter of Asher was Serah. {26:47} These

are the families of the sons of Asher according to those that were

numbered of them, fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

 

   {26:48} The sons of Naphtali after their families: of Jahzeel, the

family of the Jahzeelites; of Guni, the family of the Gunites; {26:49}

of Jezer, the family of the Jezerites; of Shillem, the family of the

Shillemites. {26:50} These are the families of Naphtali according to

their families; and they that were numbered of them were forty and five

thousand and four hundred.

 

   {26:51} These are they that were numbered of the children of Israel,

six hundred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty.

 

   {26:52} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {26:53} Unto these the

land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of

names. {26:54} To the more you shall give the more inheritance, and to

the fewer you shall give the less inheritance: to every one according

to those that were numbered of him shall his inheritance be given.

{26:55} Notwithstanding, the land shall be divided by lot: according to

the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit. {26:56}

According to the lot shall their inheritance be divided between the

more and the fewer.

 

   {26:57} And these are they that were numbered of the Levites after

their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites; of Kohas,

the family of the Kohasites; of Merari, the family of the Merarites.

{26:58} These are the families of Levi: the family of the Libnites, the

family of the Hebronites, the family of the Mahlites, the family of the

Mushites, the family of the Korahites. And Kohas begat Amram. {26:59}

And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, who

was born to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram Aaron and Moses, and

Miriam their sister. {26:60} And unto Aaron were born Nadab and Abihu,

Eleazar and Ithamar. {26:61} And Nadab and Abihu died, when they

offered strange fire before Yehovah. {26:62} And they that were

numbered of them were twenty and three thousand, every male from a

Moon old and upward: for they were not numbered among the children of

Israel, because there was no inheritance given them among the children

of Israel.

 

   {26:63} These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the

priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by

the Jordan at Jericho. {26:64} But among these there was not a man of

them that were numbered by Moses and Aaron the priest, who numbered the

children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai. {26:65} For Yehovah had

said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was

not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the

son of Nun.

 

 

O4)27

   {27:1} Then drew near the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of

Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of

the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph; and these are the names of

his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. {27:2}

And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before

the princes and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of

meeting, saying, {27:3} Our father died in the wilderness, and he was

not among the company of them that gathered themselves together against

Yehovah in the company of Korah: but he died in his own sin; and he had

no sons. {27:4} Why should the name of our father be taken away from

among his family, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession

among the brethren of our father. {27:5} And Moses brought their cause

before Yehovah.

 

   {27:6} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {27:7} The daughters of

Zelophehad speak right: you shall surely give them a possession of an

inheritance among their father's brethren; and you shall cause the

inheritance of their father to pass unto them. {27:8} And you shall

speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no

son, then you shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter.

{27:9} And if he have no daughter, then you shall give his inheritance

unto his brethren. {27:10} And if he have no brethren, then you shall

give his inheritance unto his father's brethren. {27:11} And if his

father have no brethren, then you shall give his inheritance unto his

kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and

it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute [and] ordinance, as

Yehovah commanded Moses.

 

   {27:12} And Yehovah said unto Moses, Get you up into this mountain

of Abarim, and behold the land which I have given unto the children of

Israel. {27:13} And when you have seen it, you also shall be gathered

unto your people, as Aaron your brother was gathered; {27:14} because you

rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the

congregation, to sanctify me at the waters before their eyes. (These

are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.) {27:15}

And Moses spoke unto Yehovah, saying, {27:16} Let Yehovah, the God of

the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, {27:17}

who may go out before them, and who may come in before them, and who

may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the congregation of

Yehovah be not as sheep which have no shepherd. {27:18} And Yehovah

said unto Moses, Take you Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the

Spirit, and lay your hand upon him; {27:19} and set him before Eleazar

the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in

their sight. {27:20} And you shall put of your honor upon him, that

all the congregation of the children of Israel may obey. {27:21} And he

shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the

judgment of the Urim before Yehovah: at his word shall they go out, and

at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel

with him, even all the congregation. {27:22} And Moses did as Yehovah

commanded him; and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the

priest, and before all the congregation: {27:23} and he laid his hands

upon him, and gave him a charge, as Yehovah spoke by Moses.

 

 

O4)28

   {28:1} And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying, {28:2} Command the

children of Israel, and say unto them, My oblation, my food for my

offerings made by fire, of a sweet savor unto me, shall you observe to

offer unto me in their due season. {28:3} And you shall say unto them,

This is the offering made by fire which you shall offer unto Yehovah:

he-lambs a year old outside blemish, two day by day, for a continual

burnt-offering. {28:4} The one lamb shall you offer in the morning,

and the other lamb shall you offer at even; {28:5} and the tenth part

of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with the fourth

part of a hin of beaten oil. {28:6} It is a continual burnt-offering,

which was ordained in mount Sinai for a sweet savor, an offering made

by fire unto Yehovah. {28:7} And the drink-offering of it shall be

the fourth part of a hin for the one lamb: in the holy place shall you

pour out a drink-offering of strong drink unto Yehovah. {28:8} And the

other lamb shall you offer at even: as the meal-offering of the

morning, and as the drink-offering there, you shall offer it, an

offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah.

 

   {28:9} And on the Sabbath day two he-lambs a year old outside

blemish, and two tenth parts [of an ephah] of fine flour for a

meal-offering, mingled with oil, and the drink-offering there:

{28:10} this is the burnt-offering of every Sabbath, besides the

continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering there.

 

   {28:11} And in the beginnings of your Moons you shall offer a

burnt-offering unto Yehovah: two young bullocks, and one ram, seven

he-lambs a year old outside blemish; {28:12} and three tenth parts [of

an ephah] of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, for each

bullock; and two tenth parts of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled

with oil, for the one ram; {28:13} and a tenth part of fine flour

mingled with oil for a meal-offering unto every lamb; for a

burnt-offering of a sweet savor, an offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

{28:14} And their drink-offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a

bullock, and the third part of a hin for the ram, and the fourth part

of a hin for a lamb: this is the burnt-offering of every Moon

throughout the Moons of the year. {28:15} And one he-goat for a

sin-offering unto Yehovah; it shall be offered besides the continual

burnt-offering, and the drink-offering there.

 

   {28:16} And in the first Moon, on the fourteenth day of the Moon,

is Yehovah's Passover. {28:17} And on the fifteenth day of this Moon

shall be a feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. {28:18}

In the first day shall be a holy convocation: you shall do no servile

work; {28:19} but you shall offer an offering made by fire, a

burnt-offering unto Yehovah: two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven

he-lambs a year old; they shall be unto you outside blemish; {28:20}

and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil: three tenth parts

shall you offer for a bullock, and two tenth parts for the ram; {28:21}

a tenth part shall you offer for every lamb of the seven lambs;

{28:22} and one he-goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you.

{28:23} you shall offer these besides the burnt-offering of the morning,

which is for a continual burnt-offering. {28:24} After this manner you

shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of the offering made by

fire, of a sweet savor unto Yehovah: it shall be offered besides the

continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering there. {28:25} And

on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation: you shall do no

servile work.

 

   {28:26} Also in the day of the first-fruits, when you offer a new

meal-offering unto Yehovah in your [feast of] solar sevens, you shall have a

holy convocation; you shall do no servile work; {28:27} but you shall

offer a burnt-offering for a sweet savor unto Yehovah: two young

bullocks, one ram, seven he-lambs a year old; {28:28} and their

meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for each

bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram, {28:29} a tenth part for

every lamb of the seven lambs; {28:30} one he-goat, to make atonement

for you. {28:31} Besides the continual burnt-offering, and the

meal-offering there, you shall offer them (they shall be unto you

outside blemish), and their drink-offerings.

 

 

 

   {29:1} And in the seventh Moon, on the first day of the Moon, you

shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work: it is a day

of blowing of trumpets unto you. {29:2} And you shall offer a

burnt-offering for a sweet savor unto Yehovah: one young bullock, one

ram, seven he-lambs a year old outside blemish; {29:3} and their

meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for the

bullock, two tenth parts for the ram, {29:4} and one tenth part for

every lamb of the seven lambs; {29:5} and one he-goat for a

sin-offering, to make atonement for you; {29:6} besides the

burnt-offering of the new moon, and the meal-offering there, and the

continual burnt-offering and the meal-offering there, and their

drink-offerings, according unto their ordinance, for a sweet savor, an

offering made by fire unto Yehovah.

 

   {29:7} And on the tenth day of this seventh Moon you shall have a

holy convocation; and you shall afflict your souls: you shall do no

manner of work; {29:8} but you shall offer a burnt-offering unto Yehovah

for a sweet savor: one young bullock, one ram, seven he-lambs a year

old; they shall be unto you outside blemish; {29:9} and their

meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for the

bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram, {29:10} a tenth part for

every lamb of the seven lambs: {29:11} one he-goat for a sin-offering;

besides the sin-offering of atonement, and the continual

burnt-offering, and the meal-offering there, and their

drink-offerings.

 

   {29:12} And on the fifteenth day of the seventh Moon you shall have

a holy convocation; you shall do no servile work, and you shall keep a

feast unto Yehovah seven days: {29:13} and you shall offer a

burnt-offering, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto

Yehovah; thirteen young bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a year

old; they shall be outside blemish; {29:14} and their meal-offering,

fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for every bullock of the

thirteen bullocks, two tenth parts for each ram of the two rams,

{29:15} and a tenth part for every lamb of the fourteen lambs; {29:16}

and one he-goat for a sin-offering, besides the continual

burnt-offering, the meal-offering there, and the drink-offering

there.

 

   {29:17} And on the second day [you shall offer] twelve young

bullocks, two rams, fourteen he-lambs a year old outside blemish;

{29:18} and their meal-offeri
