Chapter 1

[1]And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, [2]Take ye 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; [3]from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel, thou and Aaron shall number them by their hosts. [4]And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of his fathers' house. [5] And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you. Of Reuben: Elizur the son of Shedeur. [6]Of Simeon: Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. [7]Of Judah: Nahshon the son of Amminadab. [8]Of Issachar: Nethanel the son of Zuar. [9]Of Zebulun: Eliab the son of Helon. [10]Of the children of Joseph: Of Ephraim: Elishama the son of Ammihud. Of Manasseh: Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. [11]Of Benjamin: Abidan the son of Gideoni. [12]Of Dan: Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. [13]Of Asher: Pagiel the son of Ochran. [14]Of Gad: Eliasaph the son of Deuel. [15]Of Naphtali: Ahira the son of Enan. [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. [17]And Moses and Aaron took these men that are mentioned by name:

[18]And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month; 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. [19]As Jehovah commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai. [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; [21]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Reuben, were forty and six thousand and five hundred. [22]Of the children of Simeon, their generations, by their families, by their fathers' houses, those that were numbered thereof, 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; [23]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty and nine thousand and three hundred.

[24]Of the children of Gad, 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; [25]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Gad, were forty and five thousand six hundred and fifty. [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; [27]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Judah, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred. [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; [29]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Issachar, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.

[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; [31]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty and seven thousand and four hundred. [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; [33]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand and five hundred. [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; [35]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Manasseh, were thirty and two thousand and two hundred. [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; [37]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Benjamin, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

[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; [39]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Dan, were threescore and two thousand and seven hundred. [40]Of the children of Asher, 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; [41]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Asher, were forty and one thousand and five hundred. [42]Of the children of Naphtali, 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; [43]those that were numbered of them, of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

[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. [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; [46]even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

[47]But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. [48]For Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [49]Only the tribe of Levi thou shalt not number, neither shalt thou take the sum of them among the children of Israel; [50]but appoint thou the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all the furniture thereof, and over all that belongeth to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the furniture thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle. [51]And when the tabernacle setteth 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 cometh nigh shall be put to death. [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. [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. [54]Thus did the children of Israel; according to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so did they.

Chapter 2

[1]And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, [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. [3] And those that encamp on the east side toward the sunrising shall be they of the standard of the camp of Judah, according to their hosts: and the prince of the children of Judah shall be Nahshon the son of Amminadab. [4]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred. [5]And those that encamp next unto him shall be the tribe of Issachar: and the prince of the children of Issachar shall be Nethanel the son of Zuar. [6]And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred. [7][And] the tribe of Zebulun: and the prince of the children of Zebulun shall be Eliab the son of Helon. [8]And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were fifty and seven thousand and four hundred. [9]All that were numbered of the camp of Judah were a hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, according to their hosts. They shall set forth first.

[10]On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to their hosts: and the prince of the children of Reuben shall be Elizur the son of Shedeur. [11]And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were forty and six thousand and five hundred. [12]And those that encamp next unto him shall be the tribe of Simeon: and the prince of the children of Simeon shall be Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. [13]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were fifty and nine thousand and three hundred. [14]And the tribe of Gad: and the prince of the children of Gad shall be Eliasaph the son of Reuel. [15]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were forty and five thousand and six hundred and fifty. [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.

[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. [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. [19]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were forty thousand and five hundred. [20]And next unto him shall be the tribe of Manasseh: and the prince of the children of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. [21]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were thirty and two thousand and two hundred. [22]And the tribe of Benjamin: and the prince of the children of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni. [23] And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred. [24]All that were numbered of the camp of Ephraim were a hundred thousand and eight thousand and a hundred, according to their hosts. And they shall set forth third.

[25]On the north side shall be the standard of the camp of Dan according to their hosts: and the prince of the children of Dan shall be Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. [26]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were threescore and two thousand and seven hundred. [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. [28]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were forty and one thousand and five hundred. [29]And the tribe of Naphtali: and the prince of the children of Naphtali shall be Ahira the son of Enan. [30]And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred. [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.

[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. [33]But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as Jehovah commanded Moses. [34]Thus did the children of Israel; according to all that Jehovah commanded Moses, so they encamped by their standards, and so they set forward, every one by their families, according to their fathers' houses.

Chapter 3

[1]Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that Jehovah spake with Moses in mount Sinai. [2]And these are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the first-born, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. [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. [4]And Nadab and Abihu died before Jehovah, when they offered strange fire before Jehovah, 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.

[5]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [6]Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him. [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. [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. [9]And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons: they are wholly given unto him on the behalf of the children of Israel. [10]And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall keep their priesthood: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death. [11]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [12]And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the first-born that openeth the womb among the children of Israel; and the Levites shall be mine: [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 Jehovah.

[14]And Jehovah spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying, [15]Number the children of Levi by their fathers' houses, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. [16]And Moses numbered them according to the word of Jehovah, as he was commanded. [17]And these were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari. [18]And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families: Libni and Shimei. [19]And the sons of Kohath by their families: Amram, and Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. [20]And the sons of Merari by their families: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their fathers' houses.

[21]Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimeites: these are the families of the Gershonites. [22]Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred. [23]The families of the Gershonites shall encamp behind the tabernacle westward. [24]And the prince of the fathers' house of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael. [25]And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tent of meeting shall be the tabernacle, and the Tent, the covering thereof, and the screen for the door of the tent of meeting, [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 thereof.

[27]And of Kohath 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 Kohathites. [28]According to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, there were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the sanctuary. [29]The families of the sons of Kohath shall encamp on the side of the tabernacle southward. [30]And the prince of the fathers' house of the families of the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel. [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 thereof. [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.

[33]Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the Mushites: these are the families of Merari. [34] And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred. [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. [36]And the appointed charge of the sons of Merari shall be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the instruments thereof, and all the service thereof, [37]and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.

[38]And those that encamp before the tabernacle eastward, before the tent of meeting toward the sunrising, 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 cometh nigh shall be put to death. [39]All that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of Jehovah, by their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

[40]And Jehovah said unto Moses, Number all the first-born males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names. [41]And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am Jehovah) 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: [42]and Moses numbered, as Jehovah commanded him, all the first-born among the children of Israel. [43]And all the first-born males according to the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

[44]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [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 Jehovah. [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, [47]thou shalt take five shekels apiece by the poll; after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them (the shekel is twenty gerahs): [48]and thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons. [49]And Moses took the redemption-money from them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites; [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: [51]and Moses gave the redemption-money unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of Jehovah, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

Chapter 4

[1]And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, [2]Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their families, by their fathers' houses, [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]This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting, [about] the most holy things: [5]when the camp setteth 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, [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 thereof. [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: [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 thereof. [9]And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the candlestick of the light, and its lamps, and its snuffers, and its snuffdishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it: [10]and they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of sealskin, and shall put it upon the frame. [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 thereof: [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. [13]And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon: [14]and they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith they minister about it, the firepans, 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 thereof. [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 Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch the sanctuary, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting. [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 thereof.

[17]And Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, [18]Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites; [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; [20]but they shall not go in to see the sanctuary even for a moment, lest they die.

[21]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [22]Take the sum of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' houses, by their families; [23]from thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou number them; all that enter in to wait upon the service, to do the work in the tent of meeting. [24]This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, in serving and in bearing burdens: [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, [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 whatsoever shall be done with them: therein shall they serve. [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 ye shall appoint unto them in charge all their burden. [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.

[29]As for the sons of Merari, thou shalt number them by their families, by their fathers' houses; [30]from thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old shalt thou number them, every one that entereth upon the service, to do the work of the tent of meeting. [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 thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, [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 ye shall appoint the instruments of the charge of their burden. [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.

[34]And Moses and Aaron and the princes of the congregation numbered the sons of the Kohathites by their families, and by their fathers' houses, [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: [36]and those that were numbered of them by their families were two thousand seven hundred and fifty. [37]These are they that were numbered of the families of the Kohathites, all that did serve in the tent of meeting, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the commandment of Jehovah by Moses.

[38]And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon, their families, and by their fathers' houses, [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, [40]even those that were numbered of them, by their families, by their fathers' houses, were two thousand and six hundred and thirty. [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 Jehovah.

[42]And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, by their families, by their fathers' houses, [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, [44]even those that were numbered of them by their families, were three thousand and two hundred. [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 Jehovah by Moses.

[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, [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, [48]even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and five hundred and fourscore. [49] According to the commandment of Jehovah they were numbered by Moses, every one according to his service, and according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

Chapter 5

[1]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [2]Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is unclean by the dead: [3]both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst whereof I dwell. [4]And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp; as Jehovah spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.

[5]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [6]Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, so as to trespass against Jehovah, and that soul shall be guilty; [7]then he shall confess his sin which he hath done: and he shall make restitution for his guilt in full, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him in respect of whom he hath been guilty. [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 Jehovah shall be the priest's; besides the ram of the atonement, whereby atonement shall be made for him. [9]And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they present unto the priest, shall be his. [10]And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his.

[11]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [12]Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, [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; [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: [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 iniquity to remembrance.

[16]And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before Jehovah: [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. [18]And the priest shall set the woman before Jehovah, 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 causeth the curse. [19]And the priest shall cause her to swear, and shall say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou have not gone aside to uncleanness, being under thy husband, be thou free from this water of bitterness that causeth the curse. [20]But if thou have gone aside, being under thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee besides thy husband: [21]then the priest shall cause the woman to swear with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, Jehovah make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when Jehovah doth make thy thigh to fall away, and thy body to swell; [22]and this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, and make thy body to swell, and thy thigh to fall away. And the woman shall say, Amen, Amen.

[23]And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out into the water of bitterness: [24]and he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causeth the curse; and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her [and become] bitter. [25]And the priest shall take the meal-offering of jealousy out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the meal-offering before Jehovah, and bring it unto the altar: [26]and the priest shall take a handful of the meal-offering, as the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water. [27]And when he hath 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 causeth 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. [28]And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.

[29]This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her husband, goeth aside, and is defiled; [30]or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon a man, and he is jealous of his wife; then shall he set the woman before Jehovah, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law. [31]And the man shall be free from iniquity, and that woman shall bear her iniquity.

Chapter 6

[1]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [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 Jehovah, [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. [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.

[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 separateth himself unto Jehovah, he shall be holy; he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow long. [6]All the days that he separateth himself unto Jehovah he shall not come near to a dead body. [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. [8]All the days of his separation he is holy unto Jehovah.

[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. [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: [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. [12]And he shall separate unto Jehovah 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.

[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: [14]and he shall offer his oblation unto Jehovah, one he-lamb a year old without blemish for a burnt-offering, and one ewe-lamb a year old without blemish for a sin-offering, and one ram without blemish for peace-offerings, [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. [16]And the priest shall present them before Jehovah, and shall offer his sin-offering, and his burnt-offering: [17]and he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto Jehovah, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof. [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. [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 hath shaven [the head of] his separation; [20]and the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before Jehovah; this is holy for the priest, together with the wave-breast and heave-thigh: and after that the Nazirite may drink wine. [21]This is the law of the Nazirite who voweth, [and of] his oblation unto Jehovah for his separation, besides that which he is able to get: according to his vow which he voweth, so he must do after the law of his separation.

[22]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [23]Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel: ye shall say unto them, [24]Jehovah bless thee, and keep thee: [25]Jehovah make his face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: [26]Jehovah lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. [27]So shall they put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.

Chapter 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 thereof, and the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them and sanctified them; [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: [3]and they brought their oblation before Jehovah, 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. [4]And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, [5]Take it of them, that they may be [used] in doing the service of the tent of meeting; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his service. [6]And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto the Levites. [7]Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon, according to their service: [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. [9]But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary belonged unto them; they bare it upon their shoulders. [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. [11]And Jehovah said unto Moses, They shall offer their oblation, each prince on his day, for the dedication of the altar.
