Genesis
01O||1||1||At the first God made the heaven and the earth.
01O||1||2||And the earth was waste and without form; and it was dark on the face of the deep: and the Spirit of God was moving on the face of the waters.
01O||1||3||And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
01O||1||4||And God, looking on the light, saw that it was good: and God made a division between the light and the dark,
01O||1||5||Naming the light, Day, and the dark, Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
01O||1||6||And God said, Let there be a solid arch stretching over the waters, parting the waters from the waters.
01O||1||7||And God made the arch for a division between the waters which were under the arch and those which were over it: and it was so.
01O||1||8||And God gave the arch the name of Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.
01O||1||9||And God said, Let the waters under the heaven come together in one place, and let the dry land be seen: and it was so.
01O||1||10||And God gave the dry land the name of Earth; and the waters together in their place were named Seas: and God saw that it was good.
01O||1||11||And God said, Let grass come up on the earth, and plants producing seed, and fruit-trees giving fruit, in which is their seed, after their sort: and it was so.
01O||1||12||And grass came up on the earth, and every plant producing seed of its sort, and every tree producing fruit, in which is its seed, of its sort: and God saw that it was good.
01O||1||13||And there was evening and there was morning, the third day.
01O||1||14||And God said, Let there be lights in the arch of heaven, for a division between the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for marking the changes of the year, and for days and for years:
01O||1||15||And let them be for lights in the arch of heaven to give light on the earth: and it was so.
01O||1||16||And God made the two great lights: the greater light to be the ruler of the day, and the smaller light to be the ruler of the night: and he made the stars.
01O||1||17||And God put them in the arch of heaven, to give light on the earth;
01O||1||18||To have rule over the day and the night, and for a division between the light and the dark: and God saw that it was good.
01O||1||19||And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day.
01O||1||20||And God said, Let the waters be full of living things, and let birds be in flight over the earth under the arch of heaven.
01O||1||21||And God made great sea-beasts, and every sort of living and moving thing with which the waters were full, and every sort of winged bird: and God saw that it was good.
01O||1||22||And God gave them his blessing, saying, Be fertile and have increase, making all the waters of the seas full, and let the birds be increased in the earth.
01O||1||23||And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day.
01O||1||24||And God said, Let the earth give birth to all sorts of living things, cattle and all things moving on the earth, and beasts of the earth after their sort: and it was so.
01O||1||25||And God made the beast of the earth after its sort, and the cattle after their sort, and everything moving on the face of the earth after its sort: and God saw that it was good.
01O||1||26||And God said, Let us make man in our image, like us: and let him have rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every living thing which goes flat on the earth.
01O||1||27||And God made man in his image, in the image of God he made him: male and female he made them.
01O||1||28||And God gave them his blessing and said to them, Be fertile and have increase, and make the earth full and be masters of it; be rulers over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing moving on the earth.
01O||1||29||And God said, See, I have given you every plant producing seed, on the face of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit producing seed: they will be for your food:
01O||1||30||And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the air and every living thing moving on the face of the earth I have given every green plant for food: and it was so.
01O||1||31||And God saw everything which he had made and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.
01O||2||1||And the heaven and the earth and all things in them were complete.
01O||2||2||And on the seventh day God came to the end of all his work; and on the seventh day he took his rest from all the work which he had done.
01O||2||3||And God gave his blessing to the seventh day and made it holy: because on that day he took his rest from all the work which he had made and done.
01O||2||4||These are the generations of the heaven and the earth when they were made.
01O||2||5||In the day when the Lord God made earth and heaven there were no plants of the field on the earth, and no grass had come up: for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to do work on the land.
01O||2||6||But a mist went up from the earth, watering all the face of the land.
01O||2||7||And the Lord God made man from the dust of the earth, breathing into him the breath of life: and man became a living soul.
01O||2||8||And the Lord God made a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had made.
01O||2||9||And out of the earth the Lord made every tree to come, delighting the eye and good for food; and in the middle of the garden, the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
01O||2||10||And a river went out of Eden giving water to the garden; and from there it was parted and became four streams.
01O||2||11||The name of the first is Pishon, which goes round about all the land of Havilah where there is gold.
01O||2||12||And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
01O||2||13||And the name of the second river is Gihon: this river goes round all the land of Cush.
01O||2||14||And the name of the third river is Tigris, which goes to the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
01O||2||15||And the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to do work in it and take care of it.
01O||2||16||And the Lord God gave the man orders, saying, You may freely take of the fruit of every tree of the garden:
01O||2||17||But of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you may not take; for on the day when you take of it, death will certainly come to you.
01O||2||18||And the Lord God said, It is not good for the man to be by himself: I will make one like himself as a help to him
01O||2||19||And from the earth the Lord God made every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and took them to the man to see what names he would give them: and whatever name he gave to any living thing, that was its name.
01O||2||20||And the man gave names to all cattle and to the birds of the air and to every beast of the field; but Adam had no one like himself as a help.
01O||2||21||And the Lord God sent a deep sleep on the man, and took one of the bones from his side while he was sleeping, joining up the flesh again in its place:
01O||2||22||And the bone which the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman, and took her to the man.
01O||2||23||And the man said, This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh: let her name be Woman because she was taken out of Man.
01O||2||24||For this cause will a man go away from his father and his mother and be joined to his wife; and they will be one flesh.
01O||2||25||And the man and his wife were without clothing, and they had no sense of shame.
01O||3||1||Now the snake was wiser than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, Has God truly said that you may not take of the fruit of any tree in the garden?
01O||3||2||And the woman said, We may take of the fruit of the trees in the garden:
01O||3||3||But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, If you take of it or put your hands on it, death will come to you.
01O||3||4||And the snake said, Death will not certainly come to you:
01O||3||5||For God sees that on the day when you take of its fruit, your eyes will be open, and you will be as gods, having knowledge of good and evil.
01O||3||6||And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and a delight to the eyes, and to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and gave it to her husband.
01O||3||7||And their eyes were open and they were conscious that they had no clothing and they made themselves coats of leaves stitched together.
01O||3||8||And there came to them the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening wind: and the man and his wife went to a secret place among the trees of the garden, away from the eyes of the Lord God.
01O||3||9||And the voice of the Lord God came to the man, saying, Where are you?
01O||3||10||And he said, Hearing your voice in the garden I was full of fear, because I was without clothing: and I kept myself from your eyes.
01O||3||11||And he said, Who gave you the knowledge that you were without clothing? Have you taken of the fruit of the tree which I said you were not to take?
01O||3||12||And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me the fruit of the tree and I took it.
01O||3||13||And the Lord God said to the woman, What have you done? And the woman said, I was tricked by the deceit of the snake and I took it.
01O||3||14||And the Lord God said to the snake, Because you have done this you are cursed more than all cattle and every beast of the field; you will go flat on the earth, and dust will be your food all the days of your life:
01O||3||15||And there will be war between you and the woman and between your seed and her seed: by him will your head be crushed and by you his foot will be wounded.
01O||3||16||To the woman he said, Great will be your pain in childbirth; in sorrow will your children come to birth; still your desire will be for your husband, but he will be your master.
01O||3||17||And to Adam he said, Because you gave ear to the voice of your wife and took of the fruit of the tree which I said you were not to take, the earth is cursed on your account; in pain you will get your food from it all your life.
01O||3||18||Thorns and waste plants will come up, and the plants of the field will be your food;
01O||3||19||With the hard work of your hands you will get your bread till you go back to the earth from which you were taken: for dust you are and to the dust you will go back.
01O||3||20||And the man gave his wife the name of Eve because she was the mother of all who have life.
01O||3||21||And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife coats of skins for their clothing.
01O||3||22||And the Lord God said, Now the man has become like one of us, having knowledge of good and evil; and now if he puts out his hand and takes of the fruit of the tree of life, he will go on living for ever.
01O||3||23||So the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to be a worker on the earth from which he was taken.
01O||3||24||So he sent the man out; and at the east of the garden of Eden he put winged ones and a flaming sword turning every way to keep the way to the tree of life.
01O||4||1||And the man had connection with Eve his wife, and she became with child and gave birth to Cain, and said, I have got a man from the Lord.
01O||4||2||Then again she became with child and gave birth to Abel, his brother. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a farmer.
01O||4||3||And after a time, Cain gave to the Lord an offering of the fruits of the earth.
01O||4||4||And Abel gave an offering of the young lambs of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord was pleased with Abel's offering;
01O||4||5||But in Cain and his offering he had no pleasure. And Cain was angry and his face became sad.
01O||4||6||And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? and why is your face sad?
01O||4||7||If you do well, will you not have honour? and if you do wrong, sin is waiting at the door, desiring to have you, but do not let it be your master.
01O||4||8||And Cain said to his brother, Let us go into the field: and when they were in the field, Cain made an attack on his brother Abel and put him to death.
01O||4||9||And the Lord said to Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I have no idea: am I my brother's keeper?
01O||4||10||And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood is crying to me from the earth.
01O||4||11||And now you are cursed from the earth, whose mouth is open to take your brother's blood from your hand;
01O||4||12||No longer will the earth give you her fruit as the reward of your work; you will be a wanderer in flight over the earth.
01O||4||13||And Cain said, My punishment is greater than my strength.
01O||4||14||You have sent me out this day from the face of the earth and from before your face; I will be a wanderer in flight over the earth, and whoever sees me will put me to death.
01O||4||15||And the Lord said, Truly, if Cain is put to death, seven lives will be taken for his. And the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one might put him to death.
01O||4||16||And Cain went away from before the face of the Lord, and made his living-place in the land of Nod on the east of Eden.
01O||4||17||And Cain had connection with his wife and she became with child and gave birth to Enoch: and he made a town, and gave the town the name of Enoch after his son.
01O||4||18||And Enoch had a son Irad: and Irad became the father of Mehujael: and Mehujael became the father of Methushael: and Methushael became the father of Lamech.
01O||4||19||And Lamech had two wives; the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
01O||4||20||And Adah gave birth to Jabal: he was the father of such as are living in tents and keep cattle.
01O||4||21||And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all players on instruments of music.
01O||4||22||And Zillah gave birth to Tubal-cain, who is the father of every maker of cutting instruments of brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
01O||4||23||And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, give ear to my voice; you wives of Lamech, give attention to my words, for I would put a man to death for a wound, and a young man for a blow;
01O||4||24||If seven lives are to be taken as punishment for Cain's death, seventy-seven will be taken for Lamech's.
01O||4||25||And Adam had connection with his wife again, and she gave birth to a son to whom she gave the name of Seth: for she said, God has given me another seed in place of Abel, whom Cain put to death.
01O||4||26||And Seth had a son, and he gave him the name of Enosh: at this time men first made use of the name of the Lord in worship.
01O||5||1||This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God made man, he made him in the image of God;
01O||5||2||Male and female he made them, naming them Man, and giving them his blessing on the day when they were made.
01O||5||3||Adam had been living for a hundred and thirty years when he had a son like himself, after his image, and gave him the name of Seth:
01O||5||4||And after the birth of Seth, Adam went on living for eight hundred years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||5||And all the years of Adam's life were nine hundred and thirty: and he came to his end.
01O||5||6||And Seth was a hundred and five years old when he became the father of Enosh:
01O||5||7||And he went on living after the birth of Enosh for eight hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||8||And all the years of Seth's life were nine hundred and twelve: and he came to his end.
01O||5||9||And Enosh was ninety years old when he became the father of Kenan:
01O||5||10||And after the birth of Kenan, Enosh went on living for eight hundred and fifteen years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||11||And all the years of Enosh were nine hundred and five: and he came to his end.
01O||5||12||And Kenan was seventy years old when he became the father of Mahalalel:
01O||5||13||And after the birth of Mahalalel, Kenan went on living for eight hundred and forty years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||14||And all the years of Kenan's life were nine hundred and ten; and he came to his end.
01O||5||15||And Mahalalel was sixty-five years old when he became the father of Jared:
01O||5||16||And after the birth of Jared, Mahalalel went on living for eight hundred and thirty years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||17||And all the years of Mahalalel's life were eight hundred and ninety-five: and he came to his end.
01O||5||18||And Jared was a hundred and sixty-two years old when he became the father of Enoch:
01O||5||19||And Jared went on living after the birth of Enoch for eight hundred years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||20||And all the years of Jared's life were nine hundred and sixty-two: and he came to his end.
01O||5||21||And Enoch was sixty-five years old when he became the father of Methuselah:
01O||5||22||And after the birth of Methuselah, Enoch went on in God's ways for three hundred years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||23||And all the years of Enoch's life were three hundred and sixty-five:
01O||5||24||And Enoch went on in God's ways: and he was not seen again, for God took him.
01O||5||25||And Methuselah was a hundred and eighty-seven years old when he became the father of Lamech:
01O||5||26||And after the birth of Lamech, Methuselah went on living for seven hundred and eighty-two years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||27||And all the years of Methuselah's life were nine hundred and sixty-nine: and he came to his end.
01O||5||28||And Lamech was a hundred and eighty-two years old when he had a son:
01O||5||29||And he gave him the name of Noah, saying, Truly, he will give us rest from our trouble and the hard work of our hands, because of the earth which was cursed by God.
01O||5||30||And after the birth of Noah, Lamech went on living for five hundred and ninety-five years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||5||31||And all the years of Lamech's life were seven hundred and seventy-seven: and he came to his end.
01O||5||32||And when Noah was five hundred years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
01O||6||1||And after a time, when men were increasing on the earth, and had daughters,
01O||6||2||The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took wives for themselves from those who were pleasing to them.
01O||6||3||And the Lord said, My spirit will not be in man for ever, for he is only flesh; so the days of his life will be a hundred and twenty years.
01O||6||4||There were men of great strength and size on the earth in those days; and after that, when the sons of God had connection with the daughters of men, they gave birth to children: these were the great men of old days, the men of great name.
01O||6||5||And the Lord saw that the sin of man was great on the earth, and that all the thoughts of his heart were evil.
01O||6||6||And the Lord had sorrow because he had made man on the earth, and grief was in his heart.
01O||6||7||And the Lord said, I will take away man, whom I have made, from the face of the earth, even man and beast and that which goes on the earth and every bird of the air; for I have sorrow for having made them.
01O||6||8||But Noah had grace in the eyes of God.
01O||6||9||These are the generations of Noah. Noah was an upright man and without sin in his generation: he went in the ways of God.
01O||6||10||And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
01O||6||11||And the earth was evil in God's eyes and full of violent ways.
01O||6||12||And God, looking on the earth, saw that it was evil: for the way of all flesh had become evil on the earth.
01O||6||13||And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come; the earth is full of their violent doings, and now I will put an end to them with the earth.
01O||6||14||Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood with rooms in it, and make it safe from the water inside and out.
01O||6||15||And this is the way you are to make it: it is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high.
01O||6||16||You are to put a window in the ark, a cubit from the roof, and a door in the side of it, and you are to make it with a lower and second and third floors.
01O||6||17||For truly, I will send a great flow of waters over the earth, for the destruction from under the heaven of all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything on the earth will come to an end.
01O||6||18||But with you I will make an agreement; and you will come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you.
01O||6||19||And you will take with you into the ark two of every sort of living thing, and keep them safe with you; they will be male and female.
01O||6||20||Two of every sort of bird and cattle and of every sort of living thing which goes on the earth will you take with you to keep them from destruction.
01O||6||21||And make a store of every sort of food for yourself and them.
01O||6||22||And all these things Noah did; as God said, so he did.
01O||7||1||And the Lord said to Noah, Take all your family and go into the ark, for you only in this generation have I seen to be upright.
01O||7||2||Of every clean beast you will take seven males and seven females, and of the beasts which are not clean, two, the male and his female;
01O||7||3||And of the birds of the air, seven males and seven females, so that their seed may still be living on the face of the earth.
01O||7||4||For after seven days I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, for the destruction of every living thing which I have made on the face of the earth.
01O||7||5||And Noah did everything which the Lord said he was to do.
01O||7||6||And Noah was six hundred years old when the waters came flowing over all the earth.
01O||7||7||And Noah, with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives, went into the ark because of the flowing of the waters.
01O||7||8||Of clean beasts, and of beasts which are not clean, and of birds, and of everything which goes on the earth,
01O||7||9||In twos, male and female, they went into the ark with Noah, as God had said.
01O||7||10||And after the seven days, the waters came over all the earth.
01O||7||11||In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, all the fountains of the great deep came bursting through, and the windows of heaven were open;
01O||7||12||And rain came down on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
01O||7||13||On the same day Noah, with Shem, Ham, and Japheth, his sons, and his wife and his sons' wives, went into the ark;
01O||7||14||And with them, every sort of beast and cattle, and every sort of thing which goes on the earth, and every sort of bird.
01O||7||15||They went with Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh in which is the breath of life.
01O||7||16||Male and female of all flesh went in, as God had said, and the ark was shut by the Lord.
01O||7||17||And for forty days the waters were over all the earth; and the waters were increased so that the ark was lifted up high over the earth.
01O||7||18||And the waters overcame everything and were increased greatly on the earth, and the ark was resting on the face of the waters.
01O||7||19||And the waters overcame everything on the earth; and all the mountains under heaven were covered.
01O||7||20||The waters went fifteen cubits higher, till all the mountains were covered.
01O||7||21||And destruction came on every living thing moving on the earth, birds and cattle and beasts and everything which went on the earth, and every man.
01O||7||22||Everything on the dry land, in which was the breath of life, came to its end.
01O||7||23||Every living thing on the face of all the earth, man and cattle and things moving on the face of the earth, and birds of the air, came to destruction: only Noah and those who were with him in the ark, were kept from death.
01O||7||24||And the waters were over the earth a hundred and fifty days.
01O||8||1||And God kept Noah in mind, and all the living things and the cattle which were with him in the ark: and God sent a wind over the earth, and the waters went down.
01O||8||2||And the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were shut, and the rain from heaven was stopped.
01O||8||3||And the waters went slowly back from the earth, and at the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters were lower.
01O||8||4||And on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
01O||8||5||And still the waters went on falling, till on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen.
01O||8||6||Then, after forty days, through the open window of the ark which he had made,
01O||8||7||Noah sent out a raven, which went this way and that till the waters were gone from the earth.
01O||8||8||And he sent out a dove, to see if the waters had gone from the face of the earth;
01O||8||9||But the dove saw no resting-place for her foot, and came back to the ark, for the waters were still over all the earth; and he put out his hand, and took her into the ark.
01O||8||10||And after waiting another seven days, he sent the dove out again;
01O||8||11||And the dove came back at evening, and in her mouth was an olive-leaf broken off: so Noah was certain that the waters had gone down on the earth.
01O||8||12||And after seven days more, he sent the dove out again, but she did not come back to him.
01O||8||13||And in the six hundred and first year, on the first day of the first month, the waters were dry on the earth: and Noah took the cover off the ark and saw that the face of the earth was dry.
01O||8||14||And on the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was dry.
01O||8||15||And God said to Noah,
01O||8||16||Go out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and your sons' wives.
01O||8||17||Take out with you every living thing which is with you, birds and cattle and everything which goes on the earth, so that they may have offspring and be fertile and be increased on the earth.
01O||8||18||And Noah went out with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives;
01O||8||19||And every beast and bird and every living thing of every sort which goes on the earth, went out of the ark.
01O||8||20||And Noah made an altar to the Lord, and from every clean beast and bird he made burned offerings on the altar.
01O||8||21||And when the sweet smell came up to the Lord, he said in his heart, I will not again put a curse on the earth because of man, for the thoughts of man's heart are evil from his earliest days; never again will I send destruction on all living things as I have done.
01O||8||22||While the earth goes on, seed time and the getting in of the grain, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will not come to an end.
01O||9||1||And God gave his blessing to Noah and his sons, and said, Be fertile, and have increase, and make the earth full.
01O||9||2||And the fear of you will be strong in every beast of the earth and every bird of the air; everything which goes on the land, and all the fishes of the sea, are given into your hands.
01O||9||3||Every living and moving thing will be food for you; I give them all to you as before I gave you all green things.
01O||9||4||But flesh with the life-blood in it you may not take for food.
01O||9||5||And for your blood, which is your life, will I take payment; from every beast I will take it, and from every man will I take payment for the blood of his brother-man.
01O||9||6||Whoever takes a man's life, by man will his life be taken; because God made man in his image.
01O||9||7||And now, be fertile and have increase; have offspring on the earth and become great in number.
01O||9||8||And God said to Noah and to his sons,
01O||9||9||Truly, I will make my agreement with you and with your seed after you,
01O||9||10||And with every living thing with you, all birds and cattle and every beast of the earth which comes out of the ark with you.
01O||9||11||And I will make my agreement with you; never again will all flesh be cut off by the waters; never again will the waters come over all the earth for its destruction.
01O||9||12||And God said, This is the sign of the agreement which I make between me and you and every living thing with you, for all future generations:
01O||9||13||I will put my bow in the cloud and it will be for a sign of the agreement between me and the earth.
01O||9||14||And whenever I make a cloud come over the earth, the bow will be seen in the cloud,
01O||9||15||And I will keep in mind the agreement between me and you and every living thing; and never again will there be a great flow of waters causing destruction to all flesh.
01O||9||16||And the bow will be in the cloud, and looking on it, I will keep in mind the eternal agreement between God and every living thing on the earth.
01O||9||17||And God said to Noah, This is the sign of the agreement which I have made between me and all flesh on the earth.
01O||9||18||And the sons of Noah who went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham is the father of Canaan.
01O||9||19||These three were the sons of Noah and from them all the earth was peopled.
01O||9||20||In those days Noah became a farmer, and he made a vine-garden.
01O||9||21||And he took of the wine of it and was overcome by drink; and he was uncovered in his tent.
01O||9||22||And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father unclothed, and gave news of it to his two brothers outside.
01O||9||23||And Shem and Japheth took a robe, and putting it on their backs went in with their faces turned away, and put it over their father so that they might not see him unclothed.
01O||9||24||And, awaking from his wine, Noah saw what his youngest son had done to him, and he said,
01O||9||25||Cursed be Canaan; let him be a servant of servants to his brothers.
01O||9||26||And he said, Praise to the Lord, the God of Shem; let Canaan be his servant.
01O||9||27||May God make Japheth great, and let his living-place be in the tents of Shem, and let Canaan be his servant.
01O||9||28||And Noah went on living three hundred and fifty years after the great flow of waters;
01O||9||29||all the years of his life were nine hundred and fifty: and he came to his end.
01O||10||1||Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: these are the sons which they had after the great flow of waters
01O||10||2||The sons of Japheth: Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras.
01O||10||3||And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah.
01O||10||4||And the sons of Javan: Elishah and Tarshish, the Kittim and the Dodanim.
01O||10||5||From these came the nations of the sea-lands, with their different families and languages.
01O||10||6||And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan.
01O||10||7||And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
01O||10||8||And Cush was the father of Nimrod, who was the first of the great men of the earth.
01O||10||9||He was a very great bowman, so that there is a saying, Like Nimrod, a very great bowman.
01O||10||10||And at the first, his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
01O||10||11||From that land he went out into Assyria, building Nineveh with its wide streets and Calah,
01O||10||12||And Resen between Nineveh and Calah, which is a very great town.
01O||10||13||And Mizraim was the father of the Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim;
01O||10||14||And Pathrusim and Casluhim and Caphtorim, from whom came the Philistines.
01O||10||15||And Canaan was the father of Zidon, who was his oldest son, and Heth,
01O||10||16||And the Jebusite and the Amorite and the Girgashite,
01O||10||17||And the Hivite and the Arkite and the Sinite,
01O||10||18||And the Arvadite and the Zemarite and the Hamathite; after that the families of the Canaanites went far and wide in all directions;
01O||10||19||Their country stretching from Zidon to Gaza, in the direction of Gerar; and to Lasha, in the direction of Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim.
01O||10||20||All these, with their different families, languages, lands, and nations, are the offspring of Ham.
01O||10||21||And Shem, the older brother of Japheth, the father of the children of Eber, had other sons in addition.
01O||10||22||These are the sons of Shem: Elam and Asshur and Arpachshad and Lud and Aram.
01O||10||23||And the sons of Aram: Uz and Hul and Gether and Mash.
01O||10||24||And Arpachshad became the father of Shelah; and Shelah became the father of Eber.
01O||10||25||And Eber had two sons: the name of the one was Peleg, because in his time the peoples of the earth became separate; and his brother's name was Joktan.
01O||10||26||And Joktan was the father of Almodad and Sheleph and Hazarmaveth and Jerah
01O||10||27||And Hadoram and Uzal and Diklah
01O||10||28||And Obal and Abimael and Sheba
01O||10||29||And Ophir and Havilah and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.
01O||10||30||And their country was from Mesha, in the direction of Sephar, the mountain of the east.
01O||10||31||These, with their families and their languages and their lands and their nations, are the offspring of Shem.
01O||10||32||These are the families of the sons of Noah, in the order of their generations and their nations: from these came all the nations of the earth after the great flow of waters.
01O||11||1||And all the earth had one language and one tongue.
01O||11||2||And it came about that in their wandering from the east, they came to a stretch of flat country in the land of Shinar, and there they made their living-place.
01O||11||3||And they said one to another, Come, let us make bricks, burning them well. And they had bricks for stone, putting them together with sticky earth.
01O||11||4||And they said, Come, let us make a town, and a tower whose top will go up as high as heaven; and let us make a great name for ourselves, so that we may not be wanderers over the face of the earth.
01O||11||5||And the Lord came down to see the town and the tower which the children of men were building.
01O||11||6||And the Lord said, See, they are all one people and have all one language; and this is only the start of what they may do: and now it will not be possible to keep them from any purpose of theirs.
01O||11||7||Come, let us go down and take away the sense of their language, so that they will not be able to make themselves clear to one another.
01O||11||8||So the Lord God sent them away into every part of the earth: and they gave up building their town.
01O||11||9||So it was named Babel, because there the Lord took away the sense of all languages and from there the Lord sent them away over all the face of the earth.
01O||11||10||These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old when he became the father of Arpachshad, two years after the great flow of waters;
01O||11||11||And after the birth of Arpachshad, Shem went on living for five hundred years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||12||And Arpachshad was thirty-five years old when he became the father of Shelah:
01O||11||13||And after the birth of Shelah, Arpachshad went on living for four hundred and three years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||14||And Shelah was thirty years old when he became the father of Eber:
01O||11||15||And after the birth of Eber, Shelah went on living for four hundred and three years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||16||And Eber was thirty-four years old when he became the father of Peleg:
01O||11||17||And after the birth of Peleg, Eber went on living for four hundred and thirty years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||18||And Peleg was thirty years old when he became the father of Reu:
01O||11||19||And after the birth of Reu, Peleg went on living for two hundred and nine years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||20||And Reu was thirty-two years old when he became the father of Serug:
01O||11||21||And after the birth of Serug, Reu went on living for two hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||22||And Serug was thirty years old when he became the father of Nahor:
01O||11||23||And after the birth of Nahor, Serug went on living for two hundred years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||24||And Nahor was twenty-nine years old when he became the father of Terah:
01O||11||25||And after the birth of Terah, Nahor went on living for a hundred and nineteen years, and had sons and daughters:
01O||11||26||And Terah was seventy years old when he became the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
01O||11||27||These are the generations of Terah: Terah was the father of Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran was the father of Lot.
01O||11||28||And death came to Haran when he was with his father Terah in the land of his birth, Ur of the Chaldees.
01O||11||29||And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves: the name of Abram's wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and Iscah.
01O||11||30||And Sarai had no child.
01O||11||31||And Terah took Abram, his son, and Lot, the son of Haran, and Sarai, his daughter-in-law, the wife of his son Abram and they went out from Ur of the Chaldees, to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran, and were there for some time.
01O||11||32||And all the years of Terah's life were two hundred and five: and Terah came to his end in Haran.
01O||12||1||Now the Lord said to Abram, Go out from your country and from your family and from your father's house, into the land to which I will be your guide:
01O||12||2||And I will make of you a great nation, blessing you and making your name great; and you will be a blessing:
01O||12||3||To them who are good to you will I give blessing, and on him who does you wrong will I put my curse: and you will become a name of blessing to all the families of the earth.
01O||12||4||So Abram went as the Lord had said to him, and Lot went with him: Abram was seventy-five years old when he went away from Haran.
01O||12||5||And Abram took Sarai, his wife, and Lot, his brother's son, and all their goods and the servants which they had got in Haran, and they went out to go to the land of Canaan.
01O||12||6||And Abram went through the land till he came to Shechem, to the holy tree of Moreh. At that time, the Canaanites were still living in the land.
01O||12||7||And the Lord came to Abram, and said, I will give all this land to your seed; then Abram made an altar there to the Lord who had let himself be seen by him.
01O||12||8||And moving on from there to the mountain on the east of Beth-el, he put up his tent, having Beth-el on the west and Ai on the east: and there he made an altar and gave worship to the name of the Lord.
01O||12||9||And he went on, journeying still to the South.
01O||12||10||And because there was little food to be had in that land, he went down into Egypt.
01O||12||11||Now when he came near to Egypt, he said to Sarai, his wife, Truly, you are a fair woman and beautiful to the eye;
01O||12||12||And I am certain that when the men of Egypt see you, they will say, This is his wife: and they will put me to death and keep you.
01O||12||13||Say, then, that you are my sister, and so it will be well with me because of you, and my life will be kept safe on your account.
01O||12||14||And so it was that when Abram came into Egypt, the men of Egypt, looking on the woman, saw that she was fair.
01O||12||15||And Pharaoh's great men, having seen her, said words in praise of her to Pharaoh, and she was taken into Pharaoh's house.
01O||12||16||And because of her, he was good to Abram, and he had sheep and oxen and asses, and men-servants and women-servants, and camels.
01O||12||17||And the Lord sent great troubles on Pharaoh's house because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
01O||12||18||Then Pharaoh sent for Abram, and said, What have you done to me? why did you not say that she was your wife?
01O||12||19||Why did you say that she was your sister? so that I took her for my wife: now, take your wife and go on your way.
01O||12||20||And Pharaoh gave orders to his men, and they sent him on his way, with his wife and all he had.
01O||13||1||And Abram went up out of Egypt with his wife and all he had, and Lot with him, and they came in to the South.
01O||13||2||Now Abram had great wealth of cattle and silver and gold.
01O||13||3||And travelling on from the South, he came to Beth-el, to the place where his tent had been before, between Beth-el and Ai;
01O||13||4||To the place where he had made his first altar, and there Abram gave worship to the name of the Lord.
01O||13||5||And Lot, who went with him, had flocks and herds and tents;
01O||13||6||So that the land was not wide enough for the two of them: their property was so great that there was not room for them together.
01O||13||7||And there was an argument between the keepers of Abram's cattle and the keepers of Lot's cattle: at that time the Canaanites and Perizzites were still living in the land.
01O||13||8||Then Abram said to Lot, Let there be no argument between me and you, and between my herdmen and your herdmen, for we are brothers.
01O||13||9||Is not all the land before you? then let us go our separate ways: if you go to the left, I will go to the right; or if you take the right, I will go to the left.
01O||13||10||And Lot, lifting up his eyes and looking an the valley of Jordan, saw that it was well watered everywhere, before the Lord had sent destruction on Sodom and Gomorrah; it was like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, on the way to Zoar.
01O||13||11||So Lot took for himself all the valley of Jordan, and went to the east, and they were parted from one another.
01O||13||12||Abram went on living in the land of Canaan, and Lot went to the lowland towns, moving his tent as far as Sodom.
01O||13||13||Now the men of Sodom were evil, and great sinners before the Lord.
01O||13||14||And the Lord had said to Abram, after Lot was parted from him, From this place where you are take a look to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west:
01O||13||15||For all the land which you see I will give to you and to your seed for ever.
01O||13||16||And I will make your children like the dust of the earth, so that if the dust of the earth may be numbered, then will your children be numbered.
01O||13||17||Come, go through all the land from one end to the other for I will give it to you.
01O||13||18||And Abram, moving his tent, came and made his living-place by the holy tree of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and made an altar there to the Lord.
01O||14||1||Now in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Tidal, king of Goiim,
01O||14||2||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 (which is Zoar).
01O||14||3||All these came together in the valley of Siddim (which is the Salt Sea).
01O||14||4||For twelve years they were under the rule of Chedorlaomer, but in the thirteenth year they put off his control.
01O||14||5||And in the fourteenth year, Chedorlaomer and the kings who were on his side, overcame the Rephaim in Ashteroth-karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh-kiriathaim,
01O||14||6||And the Horites in their mountain Seir, driving them as far as El-paran, which is near the waste land.
01O||14||7||Then they came back to En-mishpat (which is Kadesh), making waste all the country of the Amalekites and of the Amorites living in Hazazon-tamar.
01O||14||8||And the king of Sodom with the king of Gomorrah and the king of Admah and the king of Zeboiim and the king of Bela (that is Zoar), went out, and put their forces in position in the valley of Siddim,
01O||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.
01O||14||10||Now the valley of Siddim was full of holes of sticky earth; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah were put to flight and came to their end there, but the rest got away to the mountain.
01O||14||11||And the four kings took all the goods and food from Sodom and Gomorrah and went on their way.
01O||14||12||And in addition they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who was living in Sodom, and all his goods.
01O||14||13||And one who had got away from the fight came and gave word of it to Abram the Hebrew, who was living by the holy tree of Mamre, the Amorite, the brother of Eshcol and Aner, who were friends of Abram.
01O||14||14||And Abram, hearing that his brother's son had been made a prisoner, took a band of his trained men, three hundred and eighteen of them, sons of his house, and went after them as far as Dan.
01O||14||15||And separating his forces by night, he overcame them, putting them to flight and going after them as far as Hobah, which is on the north side of Damascus.
01O||14||16||And he got back all the goods, and Lot, his brother's son, with his goods and the women and the people.
01O||14||17||And when he was coming back after putting to flight Chedorlaomer and the other kings, he had a meeting with the king of Sodom in the valley of Shaveh, that is, the King's Valley.
01O||14||18||And Melchizedek, king of Salem, the priest of the Most High God, took bread and wine,
01O||14||19||And blessing him, said, May the blessing of the Most High God, maker of heaven and earth, be on Abram:
01O||14||20||And let the Most High God be praised, who has given into your hands those who were against you. Then Abram gave him a tenth of all the goods he had taken.
01O||14||21||And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the prisoners and take the goods for yourself.
01O||14||22||But Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have taken an oath to the Lord, the Most High God, maker of heaven and earth,
01O||14||23||That I will not take so much as a thread or the cord of a shoe of yours; so that you may not say, I have given wealth to Abram:
01O||14||24||Give me nothing but the food which the fighting-men who went with me have had; but let Aner and Eshcol and Mamre have their part of the goods.
01O||15||1||After these things, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Have no fear, Abram: I will keep you safe, and great will be your reward.
01O||15||2||And Abram said, What will you give me? for I have no child and this Eliezer of Damascus will have all my wealth after me.
01O||15||3||And Abram said, You have given me no child, and a servant in my house will get the heritage.
01O||15||4||Then said the Lord, This man will not get the heritage, but a son of your body will have your property after you.
01O||15||5||And he took him out into the open air, and said to him, Let your eyes be lifted to heaven, and see if the stars may be numbered; even so will your seed be.
01O||15||6||And he had faith in the Lord, and it was put to his account as righteousness.
01O||15||7||And he said to him, I am the Lord, who took you from Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land for your heritage.
01O||15||8||And he said, O Lord God, how may I be certain that it will be mine?
01O||15||9||And he said, Take a young cow of three years old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a sheep of three years old, and a dove and a young pigeon.
01O||15||10||All these he took, cutting them in two and putting one half opposite the other, but not cutting the birds in two.
01O||15||11||And evil birds came down on the bodies, but Abram sent them away.
01O||15||12||Now when the sun was going down, a deep sleep came on Abram, and a dark cloud of fear.
01O||15||13||And he said to Abram, Truly, your seed will be living in a land which is not theirs, as servants to a people who will be cruel to them for four hundred years;
01O||15||14||But I will be the judge of that nation whose servants they are, and they will come out from among them with great wealth.
01O||15||15||As for you, you will go to your fathers in peace; at the end of a long life you will be put in your last resting-place.
01O||15||16||And in the fourth generation they will come back here; for at present the sin of the Amorite is not full.
01O||15||17||Then when the sun went down and it was dark, he saw a smoking fire and a flaming light which went between the parts of the bodies.
01O||15||18||In that day the Lord made an agreement with Abram, and said, To your seed have I given this land from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates:
01O||15||19||The Kenite, the Kenizzite, and the Kadmonite,
01O||15||20||And the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Rephaim,
01O||15||21||And the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Girgashite, and the Jebusite.
01O||16||1||Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had given him no children; and she had a servant, a woman of Egypt whose name was Hagar.
01O||16||2||And Sarai said to Abram, See, the Lord has not let me have children; go in to my servant, for I may get a family through her. And Abram did as Sarai said.
01O||16||3||So after Abram had been living for ten years in the land of Canaan, Sarai took Hagar, her Egyptian servant, and gave her to Abram for his wife.
01O||16||4||And he went in to Hagar and she became with child, and when she saw that she was with child, she no longer had any respect for her master's wife.
01O||16||5||And Sarai said to Abram, May my wrong be on you: I gave you my servant for your wife and when she saw that she was with child, she no longer had any respect for me: may the Lord be judge between you and me.
01O||16||6||And Abram said, The woman is in your power; do with her whatever seems good to you. And Sarai was cruel to her, so that she went running away from her.
01O||16||7||And an angel of the Lord came to her by a fountain of water in the waste land, by the fountain on the way to Shur.
01O||16||8||And he said, Hagar, Sarai's servant, where have you come from and where are you going? And she said, I am running away from Sarai, my master's wife.
01O||16||9||And the angel said to her, Go back, and put yourself under her authority.
01O||16||10||And the angel of the Lord said, Your seed will be greatly increased so that it may not be numbered.
01O||16||11||And the angel of the Lord said, See, you are with child and will give birth to a son, to whom you will give the name Ishmael, because the ears of the Lord were open to your sorrow.
01O||16||12||And he will be like a mountain ass among men; his hand will be against every man and every man's hand against him, and he will keep his place against all his brothers.
01O||16||13||And to the Lord who was talking with her she gave this name, You are a God who is seen; for she said, Have I not even here in the waste land had a vision of God and am still living?
01O||16||14||So that fountain was named, Fountain of Life and Vision: it is between Kadesh and Bered.
01O||16||15||And Hagar gave birth to a child, the son of Abram, to whom Abram gave the name of Ishmael.
01O||16||16||Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.
01O||17||1||When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord came to him, and said, I am God, Ruler of all; go in my ways and be upright in all things,
01O||17||2||And I will make an agreement between you and me, and your offspring will be greatly increased.
01O||17||3||And Abram went down on his face on the earth, and the Lord God went on talking with him, and said,
01O||17||4||As for me, my agreement is made with you, and you will be the father of nations without end.
01O||17||5||No longer will your name be Abram, but Abraham, for I have made you the father of a number of nations.
01O||17||6||I will make you very fertile, so that nations will come from you and kings will be your offspring.
01O||17||7||And I will make between me and you and your seed after you through all generations, an eternal agreement to be a God to you and to your seed after you.
01O||17||8||And to you and to your seed after you, I will give the land in which you are living, all the land of Canaan for an eternal heritage; and I will be their God.
01O||17||9||And God said to Abraham, On your side, you are to keep the agreement, you and your seed after you through all generations.
01O||17||10||And this is the agreement which you are to keep with me, you and your seed after you: every male among you is to undergo circumcision.
01O||17||11||In the flesh of your private parts you are to undergo it, as a mark of the agreement between me and you.
01O||17||12||Every male among you, from one generation to another, is to undergo circumcision when he is eight days old, with every servant whose birth takes place in your house, or for whom you gave money to someone of another country, and not of your seed.
01O||17||13||He who comes to birth in your house and he who is made yours for a price, all are to undergo circumcision; so that my agreement may be marked in your flesh, an agreement for all time.
01O||17||14||And any male who does not undergo circumcision will be cut off from his people: my agreement has been broken by him.
01O||17||15||And God said, As for Sarai, your wife, from now her name will be not Sarai, but Sarah.
01O||17||16||And I will give her a blessing so that you will have a son by her: truly my blessing will be on her, and she will be the mother of nations: kings of peoples will be her offspring.
01O||17||17||Then Abraham went down on his face, and laughing, said in his heart, May a man a hundred years old have a child? will Sarah, at ninety years old, give birth?
01O||17||18||And Abraham said to God, If only Ishmael's life might be your care!
01O||17||19||And God said, Not so; but Sarah, your wife, will have a son, and you will give him the name Isaac, and I will make my agreement with him for ever and with his seed after him.
01O||17||20||As for Ishmael, I have given ear to your prayer: truly I have given him my blessing and I will make him fertile and give him great increase; he will be the father of twelve chiefs, and I will make him a great nation.
01O||17||21||But my agreement will be with Isaac, to whom Sarah will give birth a year from this time.
01O||17||22||And having said these words, God went up from Abraham.
01O||17||23||And Abraham took Ishmael, his son, and all whose birth had taken place in his house, and all his servants whom he had made his for a price, every male of his house, and on that very day he gave them circumcision in the flesh of their private parts as God had said to him.
01O||17||24||Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he underwent circumcision.
01O||17||25||And Ishmael, his son, was thirteen years old when he underwent circumcision.
01O||17||26||Abraham and Ishmael, his son, underwent circumcision on that very day.
01O||17||27||And all the men of his house, those whose birth had taken place in the house and those whom he had got for money from men of other lands, underwent circumcision with him.
01O||18||1||Now the Lord came to him by the holy tree of Mamre, when he was seated in the doorway of his tent in the middle of the day;
01O||18||2||And lifting up his eyes, he saw three men before him; and seeing them, he went quickly to them from the door of the tent, and went down on his face to the earth;
01O||18||3||And said, My Lord, if now I have grace in your eyes, do not go away from your servant:
01O||18||4||Let me get water for washing your feet, and take your rest under the tree:
01O||18||5||And let me get a bit of bread to keep up your strength, and after that you may go on your way: for this is why you have come to your servant. And they said, Let it be so.
01O||18||6||Then Abraham went quickly into the tent, and said to Sarah, Get three measures of meal straight away and make cakes.
01O||18||7||And running to the herd, he took a young ox, soft and fat, and gave it to the servant and he quickly made it ready;
01O||18||8||And he took butter and milk and the young ox which he had made ready and put it before them, waiting by them under the tree while they took food.
01O||18||9||And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, She is in the tent.
01O||18||10||And he said, I will certainly come back to you in the spring, and Sarah your wife will have a son. And his words came to the ears of Sarah who was at the back of the tent-door.
01O||18||11||Now Abraham and Sarah were very old, and Sarah was past the time for giving birth.
01O||18||12||And Sarah, laughing to herself, said, Now that I am used up am I still to have pleasure, my husband himself being old?
01O||18||13||And the Lord said, Why was Sarah laughing and saying, Is it possible for me, being old, to give birth to a child?
01O||18||14||Is there any wonder which the Lord is not able to do? At the time I said, in the spring, I will come back to you, and Sarah will have a child.
01O||18||15||Then Sarah said, I was not laughing; for she was full of fear. And he said, No, but you were laughing.
01O||18||16||And the men went on from there in the direction of Sodom; and Abraham went with them on their way.
01O||18||17||And the Lord said, Am I to keep back from Abraham the knowledge of what I do;
01O||18||18||Seeing that Abraham will certainly become a great and strong nation, and his name will be used by all the nations of the earth as a blessing?
01O||18||19||For I have made him mine so that he may give orders to his children and those of his line after him, to keep the ways of the Lord, to do what is good and right: so that the Lord may do to Abraham as he has said.
01O||18||20||And the Lord said, Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is very great, and their sin is very evil,
01O||18||21||I will go down now, and see if their acts are as bad as they seem from the outcry which has come to me; and if they are not, I will see.
01O||18||22||And the men, turning from that place, went on to Sodom: but Abraham was still waiting before the Lord.
01O||18||23||And Abraham came near, and said, Will you let destruction come on the upright with the sinners?
01O||18||24||If by chance there are fifty upright men in the town, will you give the place to destruction and not have mercy on it because of the fifty upright men?
01O||18||25||Let such a thing be far from you, to put the upright to death with the sinner: will not the judge of all the earth do right?
01O||18||26||And the Lord said, If there are fifty upright men in the town, I will have mercy on it because of them.
01O||18||27||And Abraham answering said, Truly, I who am only dust, have undertaken to put my thoughts before the Lord:
01O||18||28||If by chance there are five less than fifty upright men, will you give up all the town to destruction because of these five? And he said, I will not give it to destruction if there are forty-five.
01O||18||29||And again he said to him, By chance there may be forty there. And he said, I will not do it if there are forty.
01O||18||30||And he said, Let not the Lord be angry with me if I say, What if there are thirty there? And he said, I will not do it if there are thirty.
01O||18||31||And he said, See now, I have undertaken to put my thoughts before the Lord: what if there are twenty there? And he said, I will have mercy because of the twenty.
01O||18||32||And he said, O let not the Lord be angry and I will say only one word more: by chance there may be ten there. And he said, I will have mercy because of the ten.
01O||18||33||And the Lord went on his way when his talk with Abraham was ended, and Abraham went back to his place.
01O||19||1||And at nightfall the two angels came to Sodom; and Lot was seated at the way into the town: and when he saw them he got up and came before them, falling down on his face to the earth.
01O||19||2||And he said, My masters, come now into your servant's house and take your rest there for the night, and let your feet be washed; and early in the morning you may go on your way. And they said, Not so, but we will take our night's rest in the street.
01O||19||3||But he made his request more strongly, so they went with him into his house; and he got food ready for them, and made unleavened bread, of which they took.
01O||19||4||But before they had gone to bed, the men of the town, all the men of Sodom, came round the house, young and old, from every part of the town;
01O||19||5||And crying out to Lot, they said, Where are the men who came to your house this night? Send them out to us, so that we may take our pleasure with them.
01O||19||6||And Lot went out to them in the doorway, shutting the door after him.
01O||19||7||And he said, My brothers, do not this evil.
01O||19||8||See now, I have two unmarried daughters; I will send them out to you so that you may do to them whatever seems good to you: only do nothing to these men, for this is why they have come under the shade of my roof.
01O||19||9||And they said, Give way there. This one man, they said, came here from a strange country, and will he now be our judge? now we will do worse to you than to them; and pushing violently against Lot, they came near to get the door broken in.
01O||19||10||But the men put out their hands and took Lot into the house to them, shutting the door again.
01O||19||11||But the men who were outside the door they made blind, all of them, small and great, so that they were tired out with looking for the door.
01O||19||12||Then the men said to Lot, Are there any others of your family here? sons-in-law or sons or daughters, take them all out of this place;
01O||19||13||For we are about to send destruction on this place, because a great outcry against them has come to the ears of the Lord; and the Lord has sent us to put an end to the town.
01O||19||14||And Lot went out and said to his sons-in-law, who were married to his daughters, Come, let us go out of this place, for the Lord is about to send destruction on the town. But his sons-in-law did not take him seriously.
01O||19||15||And when morning came, the angels did all in their power to make Lot go, saying, Get up quickly and take your wife and your two daughters who are here, and go, for fear that you come to destruction in the punishment of the town.
01O||19||16||But while he was waiting, the men took him and his wife and his daughters by the hand, for the Lord had mercy on them, and put them outside the town.
01O||19||17||And when they had put them out, he said, Go for your life, without looking back or waiting in the lowland; go quickly to the mountain or you will come to destruction.
01O||19||18||And Lot said to them, Not so, O my Lord;
01O||19||19||See now, your servant has had grace in your eyes and great is your mercy in keeping my life from destruction, but I am not able to get as far as the mountain before evil overtakes me and death;
01O||19||20||This town, now, is near, and it is a little one: O, let me go there (is it not a little one?) so that my life may be safe.
01O||19||21||And he said, See, I have given you your request in this one thing more: I will not send destruction on this town.
01O||19||22||Go there quickly, for I am not able to do anything till you have come there. For this reason, the town was named Zoar.
01O||19||23||The sun was up when Lot came to Zoar.
01O||19||24||Then the Lord sent fire and flaming smoke raining down from heaven on Sodom and Gomorrah.
01O||19||25||And he sent destruction on those towns, with all the lowland and all the people of those towns and every green thing in the land.
01O||19||26||But Lot's wife, looking back, became a pillar of salt.
01O||19||27||And Abraham got up early in the morning and went to the place where he had been talking with the Lord:
01O||19||28||And looking in the direction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the lowland, he saw the smoke of the land going up like the smoke of an oven.
01O||19||29||So it came about that when God sent destruction on the towns of the lowland, he kept his word to Abraham, and sent Lot safely away when he put an end to the towns where he was living.
01O||19||30||Then Lot went up out of Zoar to the mountain, and was living there with his two daughters, for fear kept him from living in Zoar: and he and his daughters made their living-place in a hole in the rock.
01O||19||31||And the older daughter said to her sister, Our father is old, and there is no man to be a husband to us in the natural way:
01O||19||32||Come, let us give our father much wine, and we will go into his bed, so that we may have offspring by our father,
01O||19||33||And that night they made their father take much wine; and the older daughter went into his bed; and he had no knowledge of when she went in or when she went away.
01O||19||34||And on the day after, the older daughter said to the younger, Last night I was with my father; let us make him take much wine this night again, and do you go to him, so that we may have offspring by our father.
01O||19||35||And that night again they made their father take much wine; and the younger daughter went into his bed; and he had no knowledge of when she went in or when she went away.
01O||19||36||And so the two daughters of Lot were with child by their father.
01O||19||37||And the older daughter had a son, and she gave him the name Moab: he is the father of the Moabites to this day.
01O||19||38||And the younger had a son and gave him the name Ben-ammi: from him come the children of Ammon to this day.
01O||20||1||And Abraham went on his way from there to the land of the South, and was living between Kadesh and Shur, in Gerar.
01O||20||2||And Abraham said of Sarah, his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech, king of Gerar, sent and took Sarah.
01O||20||3||But God came to Abimelech in a dream in the night, and said to him, Truly you are a dead man because of the woman whom you have taken; for she is a man's wife.
01O||20||4||Now Abimelech had not come near her; and he said, Lord, will you put to death an upright nation?
01O||20||5||Did he not say to me himself, She is my sister? and she herself said, He is my brother: with an upright heart and clean hands have I done this.
01O||20||6||And God said to him in the dream, I see that you have done this with an upright heart, and I have kept you from sinning against me: for this reason I did not let you come near her.
01O||20||7||So now, give the man back his wife, for he is a prophet, and let him say a prayer for you, so your life may be safe: but if you do not give her back, be certain that death will come to you and all your house.
01O||20||8||So Abimelech got up early in the morning and sent for all his servants and gave them word of these things, and they were full of fear.
01O||20||9||Then Abimelech sent for Abraham, and said, What have you done to us? what wrong have I done you that you have put on me and on my kingdom so great a sin? You have done to me things which are not to be done.
01O||20||10||And Abimelech said to Abraham, Why did you do this thing?
01O||20||11||And Abraham said, Because it seemed to me that there was no fear of God in this place, and that they might put me to death because of my wife.
01O||20||12||And, in fact, she is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife:
01O||20||13||And when God sent me wandering from my father's house, I said to her, Let this be the sign of your love for me; wherever we go, say of me, He is my brother.
01O||20||14||Then Abimelech gave to Abraham sheep and oxen and men-servants and women-servants, and gave him back his wife Sarah.
01O||20||15||And Abimelech said, See, all my land is before you; take whatever place seems good to you.
01O||20||16||And he said to Sarah, See, I have given to your brother a thousand bits of silver so that your wrong may be put right; now your honour is clear in the eyes of all.
01O||20||17||Then Abraham made prayer to God, and God made Abimelech well again, and his wife and his women-servants, so that they had children.
01O||20||18||For the Lord had kept all the women of the house of Abimelech from having children, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
01O||21||1||And the Lord came to Sarah as he had said and did to her as he had undertaken.
01O||21||2||And Sarah became with child, and gave Abraham a son when he was old, at the time named by God.
01O||21||3||And Abraham gave to his son, to whom Sarah had given birth, the name Isaac.
01O||21||4||And when his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham made him undergo circumcision, as God had said to him.
01O||21||5||Now Abraham was a hundred years old when the birth of Isaac took place.
01O||21||6||And Sarah said, God has given me cause for laughing, and everyone who has news of it will be laughing with me.
01O||21||7||And she said, Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would have a child at her breast? for see, I have given him a son now when he is old.
01O||21||8||And when the child was old enough to be taken from the breast, Abraham made a great feast.
01O||21||9||And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian playing with Isaac.
01O||21||10||So she said to Abraham, Send away that woman and her son: for the son of that woman is not to have a part in the heritage with my son Isaac.
01O||21||11||And this was a great grief to Abraham because of his son.
01O||21||12||But God said, Let it not be a grief to you because of the boy and Hagar his mother; give ear to whatever Sarah says to you, because it is from Isaac that your seed will take its name.
01O||21||13||And I will make a nation of the son of your servant-woman, because he is your seed.
01O||21||14||And early in the morning Abraham got up, and gave Hagar some bread and a water-skin, and put the boy on her back, and sent her away: and she went, wandering in the waste land of Beer-sheba.
01O||21||15||And when all the water in the skin was used up, she put the child down under a tree.
01O||21||16||And she went some distance away, about an arrow flight, and seating herself on the earth, she gave way to bitter weeping, saying, Let me not see the death of my child.
01O||21||17||And the boy's cry came to the ears of God; and the angel of God said to Hagar from heaven, Hagar, why are you weeping? have no fear, for the child's cry has come to the ears of God.
01O||21||18||Come, take your child in your arms, for I will make of him a great nation.
01O||21||19||Then God made her eyes open, and she saw a water-spring, and she got water in the skin and gave the boy a drink.
01O||21||20||And God was with the boy, and he became tall and strong, and he became a bowman, living in the waste land.
01O||21||21||And while he was in the waste land of Paran, his mother got him a wife from the land of Egypt.
01O||21||22||Now at that time, Abimelech and Phicol, the captain of his army, said to Abraham, I see that God is with you in all you do.
01O||21||23||Now, then, give me your oath, in the name of God, that you will not be false to me or to my sons after me, but that as I have been good to you, so you will be to me and to this land where you have been living.
01O||21||24||And Abraham said, I will give you my oath.
01O||21||25||But Abraham made a protest to Abimelech because of a water-hole which Abimelech's servants had taken by force.
01O||21||26||But Abimelech said, I have no idea who has done this thing; you never gave me word of it, and I had no knowledge of it till this day.
01O||21||27||And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made an agreement together.
01O||21||28||And Abraham put seven young lambs of the flock on one side by themselves.
01O||21||29||Then Abimelech said, What are these seven lambs which you have put on one side?
01O||21||30||And he said, Take these seven lambs from me as a witness that I have made this water-hole.
01O||21||31||So he gave that place the name Beer-sheba, because there the two of them had given their oaths.
01O||21||32||So they made an agreement at Beer-sheba, and Abimelech and Phicol, the captain of his army, went back to the land of the Philistines.
01O||21||33||And Abraham, after planting a holy tree in Beer-sheba, gave worship to the name of the Lord, the Eternal God.
01O||21||34||And Abraham went on living in the land of the Philistines as in a strange country.
01O||22||1||Now after these things, God put Abraham to the test, and said to him, Abraham; and he said, Here am I.
01O||22||2||And he said to him, Take your son, your dearly loved only son Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah and give him as a burned offering on one of the mountains of which I will give you knowledge.
01O||22||3||And Abraham got up early in the morning, and made ready his ass, and took with him two of his young men and Isaac, his son, and after the wood for the burned offering had been cut, he went on his way to the place of which God had given him word.
01O||22||4||And on the third day, Abraham, lifting up his eyes, saw the place a long way off.
01O||22||5||Then he said to his young men, Keep here with the ass; and I and the boy will go on and give worship and come back again to you.
01O||22||6||And Abraham put the wood for the burned offering on his son's back, and he himself took the fire and the knife in his hand, and the two of them went on together.
01O||22||7||Then Isaac said to Abraham, My father; and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, We have wood and fire here, but where is the lamb for the burned offering?
01O||22||8||And Abraham said, God himself will give the lamb for the burned offering: so they went on together.
01O||22||9||And they came to the place of which God had given him knowledge; and there Abraham made the altar and put the wood in place on it, and having made tight the bands round Isaac his son, he put him on the wood on the altar.
01O||22||10||And stretching out his hand, Abraham took the knife to put his son to death.
01O||22||11||But the voice of the angel of the Lord came from heaven, saying, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
01O||22||12||And he said, Let not your hand be stretched out against the boy to do anything to him; for now I am certain that the fear of God is in your heart, because you have not kept back your son, your only son, from me.
01O||22||13||And lifting up his eyes, Abraham saw a sheep fixed by its horns in the brushwood: and Abraham took the sheep and made a burned offering of it in place of his son.
01O||22||14||And Abraham gave that place the name Yahweh-yireh: as it is said to this day, In the mountain the Lord is seen.
01O||22||15||And the voice of the angel of the Lord came to Abraham a second time from heaven,
01O||22||16||Saying, I have taken an oath by my name, says the Lord, because you have done this and have not kept back from me your dearly loved only son,
01O||22||17||That I will certainly give you my blessing, and your seed will be increased like the stars of heaven and the sand by the seaside; your seed will take the land of those who are against them;
01O||22||18||And your seed will be a blessing to all the nations of the earth, because you have done what I gave you orders to do.
01O||22||19||Then Abraham went back to his young men and they went together to Beer-sheba, the place where Abraham was living.
01O||22||20||After these things, Abraham had news that Milcah, the wife of his brother Nahor, had given birth to children;
01O||22||21||Uz the oldest, and Buz his brother, and Kemuel, the father of Aram,
01O||22||22||And Chesed and Hazo and Pildash and Jidlaph and Bethuel.
01O||22||23||Bethuel was the father of Rebekah: these eight were the children of Milcah and Nahor, Abraham's brother.
01O||22||24||And his servant Reumah gave birth to Tebah and Gaham and Tahash and Maacah.
01O||23||1||Now the years of Sarah's life were a hundred and twenty-seven.
01O||23||2||And Sarah's death took place in Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron, in the land of Canaan: and Abraham went into his house, weeping and sorrowing for Sarah.
01O||23||3||And Abraham came from his dead and said to the children of Heth,
01O||23||4||I am living among you as one from a strange country: give me some land here as my property, so that I may put my dead to rest.
01O||23||5||And in answer the children of Heth said to Abraham,
01O||23||6||My lord, truly you are a great chief among us; take the best of our resting-places for your dead; not one of us will keep back from you a place where you may put your dead to rest.
01O||23||7||And Abraham got up and gave honour to the children of Heth, the people of that land.
01O||23||8||And he said to them, If you will let me put my dead to rest here, make a request for me to Ephron, the son of Zohar,
01O||23||9||That he will give me the hollow in the rock named Machpelah, which is his property at the end of his field; let him give it to me for its full price as a resting-place for my dead among you.
01O||23||10||Now Ephron was seated among the children of Heth: and Ephron the Hittite gave Abraham his answer in the hearing of the children of Heth, and of all those who came into his town, saying,
01O||23||11||No, my lord, I will give you the field with the hollow in the rock; before all the children of my people will I give it to you for a resting-place for your dead.
01O||23||12||And Abraham went down on his face before the people of the land.
01O||23||13||And Abraham said to Ephron, in the hearing of the people of the land, If only you will give ear to me, I will give you the price of the field; take it, and let me put my dead to rest there.
01O||23||14||So Ephron said to Abraham,
01O||23||15||My lord, give ear to me: the value of the land is four hundred shekels; what is that between me and you? so put your dead to rest there.
01O||23||16||And Abraham took note of the price fixed by Ephron in the hearing of the children of Heth, and gave him four hundred shekels in current money.
01O||23||17||So Ephron's field at Machpelah near Mamre, with the hollow in the rock and all the trees in the field and round it,
01O||23||18||Became the property of Abraham before the eyes of the children of Heth and of all who came into the town.
01O||23||19||Then Abraham put Sarah his wife to rest in the hollow rock in the field of Machpelah near Mamre, that is, Hebron in the land of Canaan.
01O||23||20||And the field and the hollow rock were handed over to Abraham as his property by the children of Heth.
01O||24||1||Now Abraham was old and far on in years: and the Lord had given him everything in full measure.
01O||24||2||And Abraham said to his chief servant, the manager of all his property, Come now, put your hand under my leg:
01O||24||3||And take an oath by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not get a wife for my son Isaac from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I am living;
01O||24||4||But that you will go into my country and to my relations and get a wife there for my son Isaac.
01O||24||5||And the servant said, If by chance the woman will not come with me into this land, am I to take your son back again to the land from which you came?
01O||24||6||And Abraham said, Take care that you do not let my son go back to that land.
01O||24||7||The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and made an oath to me, saying, To your seed I will give this land: he will send his angel before you and give you a wife for my son in that land.
01O||24||8||And if the woman will not come with you, then you are free from this oath; only do not take my son back there.
01O||24||9||And the servant put his hand under Abraham's leg, and gave him his oath about this thing.
01O||24||10||And the servant took ten of his master's camels, and all sorts of good things of his master's, and went to Mesopotamia, to the town of Nahor.
01O||24||11||And he made the camels take their rest outside the town by the water-spring in the evening, at the time when the women came to get water.
01O||24||12||And he said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, let me do well in what I have undertaken this day, and give your mercy to my master Abraham.
01O||24||13||See, I am waiting here by the water-spring; and the daughters of the town are coming out to get water:
01O||24||14||Now, may the girl to whom I say, Let down your vessel and give me a drink, and who says in answer, Here is a drink for you and let me give water to your camels: may she be the one marked out by you for your servant Isaac: so may I be certain that you have been good to my master Abraham.
01O||24||15||And even before his words were ended, Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, who was the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, came out with her water-vessel on her arm.
01O||24||16||She was a very beautiful girl, a virgin, who had never been touched by a man: and she went down to the spring to get water in her vessel.
01O||24||17||And the servant came running to her and said, Give me a little water from your vessel.
01O||24||18||And she said, Take a drink, my lord: and quickly letting down her vessel onto her hand, she gave him a drink.
01O||24||19||And having done so, she said, I will get water for your camels till they have had enough.
01O||24||20||And after putting the water from her vessel into the animals' drinking-place, she went quickly back to the spring and got water for all the camels.
01O||24||21||And the man, looking at her, said nothing, waiting to see if the Lord had given his journey a good outcome.
01O||24||22||And when the camels had had enough, the man took a gold nose-ring, half a shekel in weight, and two ornaments for her arms of ten shekels weight of gold;
01O||24||23||And said to her, Whose daughter are you? is there room in your father's house for us?
01O||24||24||And she said to him, I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, Nahor's wife.
01O||24||25||And she said, We have a great store of dry grass and cattle-food, and there is room for you.
01O||24||26||And with bent head the man gave worship to the Lord;
01O||24||27||And said, Praise be to the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, who has given a sign that he is good and true to my master, by guiding me straight to the house of my master's family.
01O||24||28||So the girl went running and took the news of these things to her mother's house
01O||24||29||Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and he came out quickly to the man at the water-spring.
01O||24||30||And when he saw the nose-ring and the ornaments on his sister's hands, and when she gave him word of what the man had said to her, then he went out to the man who was waiting with the camels by the water-spring.
01O||24||31||And he said to him, Come in, you on whom is the blessing of the Lord; why are you waiting outside? for I have made the house ready for you, and a place for the camels.
01O||24||32||Then the man came into the house, and Laban took their cords off the camels and gave them dry grass and food, and he gave to him and the men who were with him water for washing their feet.
01O||24||33||And meat was put before him, but he said, I will not take food till I have made my business clear to you. And they said, Do so.
01O||24||34||And he said, I am Abraham's servant.
01O||24||35||The Lord has given my master every blessing, and he has become great: he has given him flocks and herds and silver and gold, and men-servants and women-servants and camels and asses.
01O||24||36||And when Sarah, my master's wife, was old, she gave birth to a son, to whom he has given all he has.
01O||24||37||And my master made me take an oath, saying, Do not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites among whom I am living;
01O||24||38||But go to my father's house and to my relations for a wife for my son.
01O||24||39||And I said to my master, What if the woman will not come with me?
01O||24||40||And he said, The Lord, whom I have ever kept before me, will send his angel with you, who will make it possible for you to get a wife for my son from my relations and my father's house;
01O||24||41||And you will be free from your oath to me when you come to my people; and if they will not give her to you, you will be free from your oath.
01O||24||42||And I came today to the water-spring, and I said, O Lord, the God of my master Abraham, if it is your purpose to give a good outcome to my journey,
01O||24||43||Let it come about that, while I am waiting here by the water-spring, if a girl comes to get water and I say to her, Give me a little water from your vessel, and she says,
01O||24||44||Take a drink, and I will get water for your camels; let her be the woman marked out by the Lord for my master's son.
01O||24||45||And even while I was saying this to myself, Rebekah came out with her vessel on her arm; and she went down to the spring to get water; and I said to her, Give me a drink.
01O||24||46||And straight away she took down her vessel from her arm, and said, Take a drink, and I will get water for your camels.
01O||24||47||And questioning her, I said, Whose daughter are you? And she said, The daughter of Bethuel, the son of Nahor, and Milcah his wife. Then I put the ring on her nose and the ornaments on her hands.
01O||24||48||And with bent head I gave worship and praise to the Lord, the God of my master Abraham, by whom I had been guided in the right way, to get the daughter of my master's brother for his son.
01O||24||49||And now, say if you will do what is good and right for my master or not, in order that it may be clear to me what I have to do.
01O||24||50||Then Laban and Bethuel said in answer, This is the Lord's doing: it is not for us to say Yes or No to you.
01O||24||51||See, here is Rebekah: take her and go, and let her be your master's son's wife, as the Lord has said.
01O||24||52||And at these words, Abraham's servant went down on his face and gave praise to the Lord.
01O||24||53||Then he took jewels of silver and jewels of gold and fair robes and gave them to Rebekah: and he gave things of value to her mother and her brother.
01O||24||54||Then he and the men who were with him had food and drink, and took their rest there that night; and in the morning he got up, and said, Let me now go back to my master.
01O||24||55||But her brother and her mother said, Let the girl be with us a week or ten days, and then she may go.
01O||24||56||And he said, Do not keep me; the Lord has given a good outcome to my journey; let me now go back to my master.
01O||24||57||And they said, We will send for the girl, and let her make the decision.
01O||24||58||And they sent for Rebekah and said to her, Are you ready to go with this man? And she said, I am ready.
01O||24||59||So they sent their sister Rebekah and her servant with Abraham's servant and his men.
01O||24||60||And they gave Rebekah their blessing, saying, O sister, may you be the mother of thousands and ten thousands; and may your seed overcome all those who make war against them.
01O||24||61||So Rebekah and her servant-women went with the man, seated on the camels; and so the servant took Rebekah and went on his way.
01O||24||62||Now Isaac had come through the waste land to Beer-lahai-roi; for he was living in the South.
01O||24||63||And when the evening was near, he went wandering out into the fields, and lifting up his eyes he saw camels coming.
01O||24||64||And when Rebekah, looking up, saw Isaac, she got down from her camel,
01O||24||65||And said to the servant, Who is that man coming to us through the field? And the servant said, It is my master: then she took her veil, covering her face with it.
01O||24||66||Then the servant gave Isaac the story of all he had done.
01O||24||67||And Isaac took Rebekah into his tent and she became his wife; and in his love for her, Isaac was comforted after his father's death.
01O||25||1||And Abraham took another wife named Keturah.
01O||25||2||She became the mother of Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah.
01O||25||3||And Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan. And from Dedan came the Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim.
01O||25||4||And from Midian came Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the offspring of Keturah.
01O||25||5||Now Abraham gave all his property to Isaac;
01O||25||6||But to the sons of his other women he gave offerings, and sent them away, while he was still living, into the east country.
01O||25||7||Now the years of Abraham's life were a hundred and seventy-five.
01O||25||8||And Abraham came to his death, an old man, full of years; and he was put to rest with his people.
01O||25||9||And Isaac and Ishmael, his sons, put him to rest in the hollow rock of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron, the son of Zohar the Hittite, near Mamre;
01O||25||10||The same field which Abraham got from the children of Heth: there Abraham was put to rest with Sarah, his wife.
01O||25||11||Now after the death of Abraham, the blessing of God was with Isaac, his son.
01O||25||12||Now these are the generations of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, whose mother was Hagar the Egyptian, the servant of Sarah:
01O||25||13||These are the names of the sons of Ishmael by their generations: Ishmael's first son was Nebaioth; then Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam
01O||25||14||And Mishma and Dumah and Massa,
01O||25||15||Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
01O||25||16||These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names in their towns and their tent-circles; twelve chiefs with their peoples.
01O||25||17||And the years of Ishmael's life were a hundred and thirty-seven: and he came to his end, and was put to rest with his people.
01O||25||18||And their country was from Havilah to Shur which is east of Egypt: they took their place to the east of all their brothers.
01O||25||19||Now these are the generations of Abraham's son Isaac:
01O||25||20||Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean of Paddan-aram, and the sister of Laban the Aramaean, to be his wife.
01O||25||21||Isaac made prayer to the Lord for his wife because she had no children; and the Lord gave ear to his prayer, and Rebekah became with child.
01O||25||22||And the children were fighting together inside her, and she said, If it is to be so, why am I like this? So she went to put her question to the Lord.
01O||25||23||And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your body, and two peoples will come to birth from you: the one will be stronger than the other, and the older will be the servant of the younger.
01O||25||24||And when the time came for her to give birth, there were two children in her body.
01O||25||25||And the first came out red from head to foot like a robe of hair, and they gave him the name of Esau.
01O||25||26||And after him, his brother came out, gripping Esau's foot; and he was named Jacob: Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.
01O||25||27||And the boys came to full growth; and Esau became a man of the open country, an expert bowman; but Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents.
01O||25||28||Now Isaac's love was for Esau, because Esau's meat was greatly to his taste: but Rebekah had more love for Jacob.
01O||25||29||And one day Jacob was cooking some soup when Esau came in from the fields in great need of food;
01O||25||30||And Esau said to Jacob, Give me a full meal of that red soup, for I am overcome with need for food: for this reason he was named Edom.
01O||25||31||And Jacob said, First of all give me your birthright.
01O||25||32||And Esau said, Truly, I am at the point of death: what profit is the birthright to me?
01O||25||33||And Jacob said, First of all give me your oath; and he gave him his oath, handing over his birthright to Jacob.
01O||25||34||Then Jacob gave him bread and soup; and he took food and drink and went away, caring little for his birthright.
01O||26||1||Then came a time of great need in the land, like that which had been before in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech, king of the Philistines, at Gerar.
01O||26||2||And the Lord came to him in a vision and said, Do not go down to Egypt; keep in the land of which I will give you knowledge:
01O||26||3||Keep in this land, and I will be with you and give you my blessing; for to you and to your seed will I give all these lands, giving effect to the oath which I made to your father Abraham;
01O||26||4||I will make your seed like the stars of heaven in number, and will give them all these lands, and your seed will be a blessing to all the nations of the earth;
01O||26||5||Because Abraham gave ear to my voice and kept my words, my rules, my orders, and my laws.
01O||26||6||So Isaac went on living in Gerar;
01O||26||7||And when he was questioned by the men of the place about his wife, he said, She is my sister; fearing to say, She is my wife; for, he said, the men of the place may put me to death on account of Rebekah; because she is very beautiful.
01O||26||8||And when he had been there for some time, Abimelech, king of the Philistines, looking through a window, saw Isaac playing with Rebekah his wife.
01O||26||9||And he said to Isaac, It is clear that she is your wife: why then did you say, She is my sister? And Isaac said, For fear that I might be put to death because of her.
01O||26||10||Then Abimelech said, What have you done to us? one of the people might well have had connection with your wife, and the sin would have been ours.
01O||26||11||And Abimelech gave orders to his people that anyone touching Isaac or his wife was to be put to death.
01O||26||12||Now Isaac, planting seed in that land, got in the same year fruit a hundred times as much, for the blessing of the Lord was on him.
01O||26||13||And his wealth became very great, increasing more and more;
01O||26||14||For he had great wealth of flocks and herds and great numbers of servants; so that the Philistines were full of envy.
01O||26||15||Now all the water-holes, which his father's servants had made in the days of Abraham, had been stopped up with earth by the Philistines.
01O||26||16||And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go away from us, for you are stronger than we are.
01O||26||17||So Isaac went away from there, and put up his tents in the valley of Gerar, making his living-place there.
01O||26||18||And he made again the water-holes which had been made in the days of Abraham his father, and which had been stopped up by the Philistines; and he gave them the names which his father had given them.
01O||26||19||Now Isaac's servants made holes in the valley, and came to a spring of flowing water.
01O||26||20||But the herdmen of Gerar had a fight with Isaac's herdmen, for they said, The spring is ours: so he gave the spring the name of Esek, because there was a fight about it.
01O||26||21||Then they made another water-hole, and there was a fight about that, so he gave it the name of Sitnah.
01O||26||22||Then he went away from there, and made another water-hole, about which there was no fighting: so he gave it the name of Rehoboth, for he said, Now the Lord has made room for us, and we will have fruit in this land.
01O||26||23||And from there he went on to Beer-sheba.
01O||26||24||That night the Lord came to him in a vision, and said, I am the God of your father Abraham: have no fear for I am with you, blessing you, and your seed will be increased because of my servant Abraham.
01O||26||25||Then he made an altar there, and gave worship to the name of the Lord, and he put up his tents there, and there his servants made a water-hole.
01O||26||26||And Abimelech had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his friend and Phicol, the captain of his army.
01O||26||27||And Isaac said to them, Why have you come to me, seeing that in your hate for me you sent me away from you?
01O||26||28||And they said, We saw clearly that the Lord was with you: so we said, Let there be an oath between us and you, and let us make an agreement with you;
01O||26||29||That you will do us no damage, even as we put no hand on you, and did you nothing but good, and sent you away in peace: and now the blessing of the Lord is on you.
01O||26||30||Then he made a feast for them, and they all had food and drink.
01O||26||31||And early in the morning they took an oath one to the other: then Isaac sent them away and they went on their way in peace.
01O||26||32||And that day Isaac's servants came to him and gave him word of the water-hole which they had made, and said to him, We have come to water.
01O||26||33||And he gave it the name of Shibah: so the name of that town is Beer-sheba to this day.
01O||26||34||And when Esau was forty years old, he took as his wives Judith, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
01O||26||35||And Isaac and Rebekah had grief of mind because of them.
01O||27||1||Now when Isaac was old and his eyes had become clouded so that he was not able to see, he sent for Esau, his first son, and said to him, My son: and he said, Here am I.
01O||27||2||And he said, See now, I am old, and my death may take place at any time:
01O||27||3||So take your arrows and your bow and go out to the field and get meat for me;
01O||27||4||And make me food, good to the taste, such as is pleasing to me, and put it before me, so that I may have a meal and give you my blessing before death comes to me.
01O||27||5||Now Isaac's words to his son were said in Rebekah's hearing. Then Esau went out to get the meat.
01O||27||6||And Rebekah said to Jacob, her son, Your father said to your brother Esau in my hearing,
01O||27||7||Go and get some roe's meat and make me a good meal, so that I may be full, and give you my blessing before the Lord before my death.
01O||27||8||Now, my son, do what I say.
01O||27||9||Go to the flock and get me two fat young goats; and I will make of them a meal to your father's taste:
01O||27||10||And you will take it to him, so that he may have a good meal and give you his blessing before his death.
01O||27||11||And Jacob said to Rebekah, his mother, But Esau my brother is covered with hair, while I am smooth:
01O||27||12||If by chance my father puts his hand on me, it will seem to him that I am tricking him, and he will put a curse on me in place of a blessing.
01O||27||13||And his mother said, Let the curse be on me, my son: only do as I say, and go and get them for me.
01O||27||14||So he went and got them and took them to his mother: and she made a meal to his father's taste.
01O||27||15||And Rebekah took the fair robes of her oldest son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob, her younger son:
01O||27||16||And she put the skins of the young goats on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck:
01O||27||17||And she gave into the hand of Jacob, her son, the meat and the bread which she had made ready.
01O||27||18||And he came to his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I: who are you, my son?
01O||27||19||And Jacob said, I am Esau, your oldest son; I have done as you said: come now, be seated and take of my meat, so that you may give me a blessing.
01O||27||20||And Isaac said, How is it that you have got it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord your God made it come my way.
01O||27||21||And Isaac said, Come near so that I may put my hand on you, my son, and see if you are truly my son Esau or not.
01O||27||22||And Jacob went near his father Isaac: and he put his hands on him; and he said, The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.
01O||27||23||And he did not make out who he was, because his hands were covered with hair like his brother Esau's hands: so he gave him a blessing.
01O||27||24||And he said, Are you truly my son Esau? And he said, I am.
01O||27||25||And he said, Put it before me and I will take of my son's meat, so that I may give you a blessing. And he put it before him and he took it; and he gave him wine, and he had a drink.
01O||27||26||And his father Isaac said to him, Come near now, my son, and give me a kiss.
01O||27||27||And he came near and gave him a kiss; and smelling the smell of his clothing, he gave him a blessing, and said, See, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field on which the blessing of the Lord has come:
01O||27||28||May God give you the dew of heaven, and the good things of the earth, and grain and wine in full measure:
01O||27||29||Let peoples be your servants, and nations go down before you: be lord over your brothers, and let your mother's sons go down before you: a curse be on everyone by whom you are cursed, and a blessing on those who give you a blessing.
01O||27||30||And when Isaac had come to the end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob had not long gone away from Isaac his father, Esau came in from the field.
01O||27||31||And he made ready a meal, good to the taste, and took it to his father, and said to him, Let my father get up and take of his son's meat, so that you may give me a blessing.
01O||27||32||And Isaac his father said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your oldest son, Esau.
01O||27||33||And in great fear Isaac said, Who then is he who got meat and put it before me, and I took it all before you came, and gave him a blessing, and his it will be?
01O||27||34||And hearing the words of his father, Esau gave a great and bitter cry, and said to his father, Give a blessing to me, even to me, O my father!
01O||27||35||And he said, Your brother came with deceit, and took away your blessing.
01O||27||36||And he said, Is it because he is named Jacob that he has twice taken my place? for he took away my birthright, and now he has taken away my blessing. And he said, Have you not kept a blessing for me?
01O||27||37||And Isaac answering said, But I have made him your master, and have given him all his brothers for servants; I have made him strong with grain and wine: what then am I to do for you, my son?
01O||27||38||And Esau said to his father, Is that the only blessing you have, my father? give a blessing to me, even me! And Esau was overcome with weeping.
01O||27||39||Then Isaac his father made answer and said to him, Far from the fertile places of the earth, and far from the dew of heaven on high will your living-place be:
01O||27||40||By your sword will you get your living and you will be your brother's servant; but when your power is increased his yoke will be broken from off your neck.
01O||27||41||So Esau was full of hate for Jacob because of his father's blessing; and he said in his heart, The days of weeping for my father are near; then I will put my brother Jacob to death.
01O||27||42||Then Rebekah, hearing what Esau had said, sent for Jacob, her younger son, and said to him, It seems that your brother Esau is purposing to put you to death.
01O||27||43||So now, my son, do what I say: go quickly to Haran, to my brother Laban;
01O||27||44||And be there with him for a little time, till your brother's wrath is turned away;
01O||27||45||Till the memory of what you have done to him is past and he is no longer angry: then I will send word for you to come back; are the two of you to be taken from me in one day?
01O||27||46||Then Rebekah said to Isaac, My life is a weariness to me because of the daughters of Heth: if Jacob takes a wife from among the daughters of Heth, such as these, the women of this land, of what use will my life be to me?
01O||28||1||Then Isaac sent for Jacob, and blessing him, said, Do not take a wife from among the women of Canaan;
01O||28||2||But go to Paddan-aram, to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father, and there get yourself a wife from the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother.
01O||28||3||And may God, the Ruler of all, give you his blessing, giving you fruit and increase, so that you may become an army of peoples.
01O||28||4||And may God give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed, so that the land of your wanderings, which God gave to Abraham, may be your heritage.
01O||28||5||So Isaac sent Jacob away: and he went to Paddan-aram, to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramaean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.
01O||28||6||So when Esau saw that Isaac had given Jacob his blessing, and sent him away to Paddan-aram to get a wife for himself there, blessing him and saying to him, Do not take a wife from among the women of Canaan;
01O||28||7||And that Jacob had done as his father and mother said and had gone to Paddan-aram;
01O||28||8||It was clear to Esau that his father had no love for the women of Canaan,
01O||28||9||So Esau went to Ishmael and took Mahalath, the daughter of Abraham's son Ishmael, the sister of Nebaioth, to be his wife in addition to the wives he had.
01O||28||10||So Jacob went out from Beer-sheba to go to Haran.
01O||28||11||And coming to a certain place, he made it his resting-place for the night, for the sun had gone down; and he took one of the stones which were there, and putting it under his head he went to sleep in that place.
01O||28||12||And he had a dream, and in his dream he saw steps stretching from earth to heaven, and the angels of God were going up and down on them.
01O||28||13||And he saw the Lord by his side, saying, I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac: I will give to you and to your seed this land on which you are sleeping.
01O||28||14||Your seed will be like the dust of the earth, covering all the land to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south: you and your seed will be a name of blessing to all the families of the earth.
01O||28||15||And truly, I will be with you, and will keep you wherever you go, guiding you back again to this land; and I will not give you up till I have done what I have said to you.
01O||28||16||And Jacob, awaking from his sleep, said, Truly, the Lord is in this place and I was not conscious of it.
01O||28||17||And fear came on him, and he said, This is a holy place; this is nothing less than the house of God and the doorway of heaven.
01O||28||18||And early in the morning Jacob took the stone which had been under his head, and put it up as a pillar and put oil on it.
01O||28||19||And he gave that place the name of Beth-el, but before that time the town was named Luz.
01O||28||20||Then Jacob took an oath, and said, If God will be with me, and keep me safe on my journey, and give me food and clothing to put on,
01O||28||21||So that I come again to my father's house in peace, then I will take the Lord to be my God,
01O||28||22||And this stone which I have put up for a pillar will be God's house: and of all you give me, I will give a tenth part to you.
01O||29||1||Then Jacob went on his journey till he came to the land of the children of the East.
01O||29||2||And there he saw a water-hole in a field, and by the side of it three flocks of sheep, for there they got water for the sheep: and on the mouth of the water-hole there was a great stone.
01O||29||3||And all the flocks would come together there, and when the stone had been rolled away, they would give the sheep water, and put the stone back again in its place on the mouth of the water-hole.
01O||29||4||Then Jacob said to the herdmen, My brothers, where do you come from? And they said, From Haran.
01O||29||5||And he said to them, Have you any knowledge of Laban, the son of Nahor? And they said, We have.
01O||29||6||And he said to them, Is he well? And they said, He is well, and here is Rachel his daughter coming with the sheep.
01O||29||7||Then Jacob said, The sun is still high and it is not time to get the cattle together: get water for the sheep and go and give them their food.
01O||29||8||And they said, We are not able to do so till all the flocks have come together and the stone has been rolled away from the mouth of the water-hole; then we will get water for the sheep.
01O||29||9||While he was still talking with them, Rachel came with her father's sheep, for she took care of them.
01O||29||10||Then when Jacob saw Rachel, the daughter of Laban, his mother's brother, coming with Laban's sheep, he came near, and rolling the stone away from the mouth of the hole, he got water for Laban's flock.
01O||29||11||And weeping for joy, Jacob gave Rachel a kiss.
01O||29||12||And Rachel, hearing from Jacob that he was her father's relation and that he was the son of Rebekah, went running to give her father news of it.
01O||29||13||And Laban, hearing news of Jacob, his sister's son, came running, and took Jacob in his arms, and kissing him, made him come into his house. And Jacob gave him news of everything.
01O||29||14||And Laban said to him, Truly, you are my bone and my flesh. And he kept Jacob with him for the space of a month.
01O||29||15||Then Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my brother are you to be my servant for nothing? say now, what is your payment to be?
01O||29||16||Now Laban had two daughters: the name of the older was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
01O||29||17||And Leah's eyes were clouded, but Rachel was fair in face and form.
01O||29||18||And Jacob was in love with Rachel; and he said, I will be your servant seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter.
01O||29||19||And Laban said, It is better for you to have her than another man: go on living here with me.
01O||29||20||And Jacob did seven years' work for Rachel; and because of his love for her it seemed to him only a very little time.
01O||29||21||Then Jacob said to Laban, Give me my wife so that I may have her, for the days are ended.
01O||29||22||And Laban got together all the men of the place and gave a feast.
01O||29||23||And in the evening he took Leah, his daughter, and gave her to him, and he went in to her.
01O||29||24||And Laban gave Zilpah, his servant-girl, to Leah, to be her waiting-woman.
01O||29||25||And in the morning Jacob saw that it was Leah: and he said to Laban, What have you done to me? was I not working for you so that I might have Rachel? why have you been false to me?
01O||29||26||And Laban said, In our country we do not let the younger daughter be married before the older.
01O||29||27||Let the week of the bride-feast come to its end and then we will give you the other in addition, if you will be my servant for another seven years.
01O||29||28||And Jacob did so; and when the week was ended, Laban gave him his daughter Rachel for his wife.
01O||29||29||And Laban gave Rachel his servant-girl Bilhah to be her waiting-woman.
01O||29||30||Then Jacob took Rachel as his wife, and his love for her was greater than his love for Leah; and he went on working for Laban for another seven years.
01O||29||31||Now the Lord, seeing that Leah was not loved, gave her a child; while Rachel had no children.
01O||29||32||And Leah was with child, and gave birth to a son to whom she gave the name Reuben: for she said, The Lord has seen my sorrow; now my husband will have love for me.
01O||29||33||Then she became with child again, and gave birth to a son; and said, Because it has come to the Lord's ears that I am not loved, he has given me this son in addition: and she gave him the name Simeon.
01O||29||34||And she was with child again, and gave birth to a son; and said, Now at last my husband will be united to me, because I have given him three sons: so he was named Levi.
01O||29||35||And she was with child again, and gave birth to a son: and she said, This time I will give praise to the Lord: so he was named Judah; after this she had no more children for a time.
01O||30||1||Now Rachel, because she had no children, was full of envy of her sister; and she said to Jacob, If you do not give me children I will not go on living.
01O||30||2||But Jacob was angry with Rachel, and said, Am I in the place of God, who has kept your body from having fruit?
01O||30||3||Then she said, Here is my servant Bilhah, go in to her, so that she may have a child on my knees, and I may have a family by her.
01O||30||4||So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife, and Jacob went in to her.
01O||30||5||And Bilhah became with child, and gave birth to a son.
01O||30||6||Then Rachel said, God has been my judge, and has given ear to my voice, and has given me a son; so he was named Dan.
01O||30||7||And again Bilhah, Rachel's servant, was with child, and gave birth to a second son.
01O||30||8||And Rachel said, I have had a great fight with my sister, and I have overcome her: and she gave the child the name Naphtali.
01O||30||9||When it was clear to Leah that she would have no more children for a time, she gave Zilpah, her servant, to Jacob as a wife.
01O||30||10||And Zilpah, Leah's servant, gave birth to a son.
01O||30||11||And Leah said, It has gone well for me: and she gave him the name Gad.
01O||30||12||And Zilpah, Leah's servant, gave birth to a second son.
01O||30||13||And Leah said, Happy am I! and all women will give witness to my joy: and she gave him the name Asher.
01O||30||14||Now at the time of the grain-cutting, Reuben saw some love-fruits in the field, and took them to his mother Leah. And Rachel said to her, Let me have some of your son's love-fruits.
01O||30||15||But Leah said to her, Is it a small thing that you have taken my husband from me? and now would you take my son's love-fruits? Then Rachel said, You may have him tonight in exchange for your son's love-fruits.
01O||30||16||In the evening, when Jacob came in from the field, Leah went out to him and said, Tonight you are to come to me, for I have given my son's love-fruits as a price for you. And he went in to her that night.
01O||30||17||And God gave ear to her and she became with child, and gave Jacob a fifth son.
01O||30||18||Then Leah said, God has made payment to me for giving my servant-girl to my husband: so she gave her son the name Issachar.
01O||30||19||And again Leah became with child, and she gave Jacob a sixth son.
01O||30||20||And she said, God has given me a good bride-price; now at last will I have my husband living with me, for I have given him six sons: and she gave him the name Zebulun.
01O||30||21||After that she had a daughter, to whom she gave the name Dinah.
01O||30||22||Then God gave thought to Rachel, and hearing her prayer he made her fertile.
01O||30||23||And she was with child, and gave birth to a son: and she said, God has taken away my shame.
01O||30||24||And she gave him the name Joseph, saying, May the Lord give me another son.
01O||30||25||Now after the birth of Joseph, Jacob said to Laban, Let me go away to my place and my country.
01O||30||26||Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have been your servant, and let me go: for you have knowledge of all the work I have done for you.
01O||30||27||And Laban said, If you will let me say so, do not go away; for I have seen by the signs that the Lord has been good to me because of you.
01O||30||28||Say then what your payment is to be and I will give it.
01O||30||29||Then Jacob said, You have seen what I have done for you, and how your cattle have done well under my care.
01O||30||30||For before I came you had little, and it has been greatly increased; and the Lord has given you a blessing in everything I have done; but when am I to do something for my family?
01O||30||31||And Laban said, What am I to give you? And Jacob said, Do not give me anything; but I will again take up the care of your flock if you will only do this for me:
01O||30||32||Let me go through all your flock today, taking out from among them all the sheep which are marked or coloured or black, and all the marked or coloured goats: these will be my payment.
01O||30||33||And so you will be able to put my honour to the test in time to come; if you see among my flocks any goats which are not marked or coloured, or any sheep which is not black, you may take me for a thief.
01O||30||34||And Laban said, Let it be as you say.
01O||30||35||So that day he took all the he-goats which were banded or coloured, and all the she-goats which were marked or coloured or had white marks, and all the black sheep, and gave them into the care of his sons;
01O||30||36||And sent them three days' journey away: and Jacob took care of the rest of Laban's flock.
01O||30||37||Then Jacob took young branches of trees, cutting off the skin so that the white wood was seen in bands.
01O||30||38||And he put the banded sticks in the drinking-places where the flock came to get water; and they became with young when they came to the water.
01O||30||39||And because of this, the flock gave birth to young which were marked with bands of colour.
01O||30||40||These lambs Jacob kept separate; and he put his flock in a place by themselves and not with Laban's flock.
01O||30||41||And whenever the stronger ones of the flock became with young, Jacob put the sticks in front of them in the drinking-places, so that they might become with young when they saw the sticks.
01O||30||42||But when the flocks were feeble, he did not put the sticks before them; so that the feebler flocks were Laban's and the stronger were Jacob's.
01O||30||43||So Jacob's wealth was greatly increased; he had great flocks and women-servants and men-servants and camels and asses.
01O||31||1||Now it came to the ears of Jacob that Laban's sons were saying, Jacob has taken away all our father's property, and in this way he has got all this wealth.
01O||31||2||And Jacob saw that Laban's feeling for him was no longer what it had been before.
01O||31||3||Then the Lord said to Jacob, Go back to the land of your fathers, and to your relations, and I will be with you.
01O||31||4||And Jacob sent for Rachel and Leah to come to him in the field among his flock.
01O||31||5||And he said to them, It is clear to me that your father's feeling is no longer what it was to me; but the God of my father has been with me
01O||31||6||And you have seen how I have done all in my power for your father,
01O||31||7||But your father has not kept faith with me, and ten times he has made changes in my payment; but God has kept him from doing me damage.
01O||31||8||If he said, All those in the flock which have marks are to be yours, then all the flock gave birth to marked young; and if he said, All the banded ones are to be yours, then all the flock had banded young.
01O||31||9||So God has taken away your father's cattle and has given them to me.
01O||31||10||And at the time when the flock were with young, I saw in a dream that all the he-goats which were joined with the she-goats were banded and marked and coloured.
01O||31||11||And in my dream the angel of the Lord said to me, Jacob: and I said, Here am I.
01O||31||12||And he said, See how all the he-goats are banded and marked and coloured: for I have seen what Laban has done to you.
01O||31||13||I am the God of Beth-el, where you put oil on the pillar and took an oath to me: now then, come out of this land and go back to the country of your birth.
01O||31||14||Then Rachel and Leah said to him in answer, What part or heritage is there for us in our father's house?
01O||31||15||Are we not as people from a strange country to him? for he took a price for us and now it is all used up.
01O||31||16||For the wealth which God has taken from him is ours and our children's; so now, whatever God has said to you, do.
01O||31||17||Then Jacob put his wives and his sons on camels;
01O||31||18||And sending on before him all his cattle and his property which he had got together in Paddan-aram, he made ready to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.
01O||31||19||Now Laban had gone to see to the cutting of the wool of his sheep; so Rachel secretly took the images of the gods of her father's house.
01O||31||20||And Jacob went away secretly, without giving news of his flight to Laban the Aramaean.
01O||31||21||So he went away with all he had, and went across the River in the direction of the hill-country of Gilead.
01O||31||22||And on the third day Laban had news of Jacob's flight.
01O||31||23||And taking the men of his family with him, he went after him for seven days and overtook him in the hill-country of Gilead.
01O||31||24||Then God came to Laban in a dream by night, and said to him, Take care that you say nothing good or bad to Jacob.
01O||31||25||Now when Laban overtook him, Jacob had put up his tent in the hill-country; and Laban and his brothers put up their tents in the hill-country of Gilead.
01O||31||26||And Laban said to Jacob, Why did you go away secretly, taking my daughters away like prisoners of war?
01O||31||27||Why did you make a secret of your flight, not giving me word of it, so that I might have sent you away with joy and songs, with melody and music?
01O||31||28||You did not even let me give a kiss to my sons and my daughters. This was a foolish thing to do.
01O||31||29||It is in my power to do you damage: but the God of your father came to me this night, saying, Take care that you say nothing good or bad to Jacob.
01O||31||30||And now, it seems, you are going because your heart's desire is for your father's house; but why have you taken my gods?
01O||31||31||And Jacob, in answer, said to Laban, My fear was that you might take your daughters from me by force.
01O||31||32||As for your gods, if anyone of us has them, let him be put to death: make search before us all for what is yours, and take it. For Jacob had no knowledge that Rachel had taken them.
01O||31||33||So Laban went into Jacob's tent and into Leah's tent, and into the tents of the two servant-women, but they were not there; and he came out of Leah's tent and went into Rachel's.
01O||31||34||Now Rachel had taken the images, and had put them in the camels' basket, and was seated on them. And Laban, searching through all the tent, did not come across them.
01O||31||35||And she said to her father, Let not my lord be angry because I do not get up before you, for I am in the common condition of women. And with all his searching, he did not come across the images.
01O||31||36||Then Jacob was angry with Laban, and said, What crime or sin have I done that you have come after me with such passion?
01O||31||37||Now that you have made search through all my goods, what have you seen which is yours? Make it clear now before my people and your people, so that they may be judges between us.
01O||31||38||These twenty years I have been with you; your sheep and your goats have had young without loss, not one of your he-goats have I taken for food.
01O||31||39||Anything which was wounded by beasts I did not take to you, but myself made up for the loss of it; you made me responsible for whatever was taken by thieves, by day or by night.
01O||31||40||This was my condition, wasted by heat in the day and by the bitter cold at night; and sleep went from my eyes.
01O||31||41||These twenty years I have been in your house; I was your servant for fourteen years because of your daughters, and for six years I kept your flock, and ten times was my payment changed.
01O||31||42||If the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, had not been with me, you would have sent me away with nothing in my hands. But God has seen my troubles and the work of my hands, and this night he kept you back.
01O||31||43||Then Laban, answering, said, These women are my daughters and these children my children, the flocks and all you see are mine: what now may I do for my daughters and for their children?
01O||31||44||Come, let us make an agreement, you and I; and let it be for a witness between us.
01O||31||45||Then Jacob took a stone and put it up as a pillar.
01O||31||46||And Jacob said to his people, Get stones together; and they did so; and they had a meal there by the stones.
01O||31||47||And the name Laban gave it was Jegar-sahadutha: but Jacob gave it the name of Galeed.
01O||31||48||And Laban said, These stones are a witness between you and me today. For this reason its name was Galeed,
01O||31||49||And Mizpah, for he said, May the Lord keep watch on us when we are unable to see one another's doings.
01O||31||50||If you are cruel to my daughters, or if you take other wives in addition to my daughters, then though no man is there to see, God will be the witness between us.
01O||31||51||And Laban said, See these stones and this pillar which I have put between you and me;
01O||31||52||They will be witness that I will not go over these stones to you, and you will not go over these stones or this pillar to me, for any evil purpose.
01O||31||53||May the God of Abraham and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, be our judge. Then Jacob took an oath by the Fear of his father Isaac.
01O||31||54||And Jacob made an offering on the mountain, and gave orders to his people to take food: so they had a meal and took their rest that night on the mountain.
01O||31||55||And early in the morning Laban, after kissing and blessing his daughters, went on his way back to his country.
01O||32||1||And on his way Jacob came face to face with the angels of God.
01O||32||2||And when he saw them he said, This is the army of God: so he gave that place the name of Mahanaim.
01O||32||3||Now Jacob sent servants before him to Esau, his brother, in the land of Seir, the country of Edom;
01O||32||4||And he gave them orders to say these words to Esau: Your servant Jacob says, Till now I have been living with Laban:
01O||32||5||And I have oxen and asses and flocks and men-servants and women-servants: and I have sent to give my lord news of these things so that I may have grace in his eyes.
01O||32||6||When the servants came back they said, We have seen your brother Esau and he is coming out to you, and four hundred men with him.
01O||32||7||Then Jacob was in great fear and trouble of mind: and he put all the people and the flocks and the herds and the camels into two groups;
01O||32||8||And said, If Esau, meeting one group, makes an attack on them, the others will get away safely.
01O||32||9||Then Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, the God of my father Isaac, the Lord who said to me, Go back to your country and your family and I will be good to you:
01O||32||10||I am less than nothing in comparison with all your mercies and your faith to me your servant; for with only my stick in my hand I went across Jordan, and now I have become two armies.
01O||32||11||Be my saviour from the hand of Esau, my brother: for my fear is that he will make an attack on me, putting to death mother and child.
01O||32||12||And you said, Truly, I will be good to you, and make your seed like the sand of the sea which may not be numbered.
01O||32||13||Then he put up his tent there for the night; and from among his goods he took, as an offering for his brother Esau,
01O||32||14||Two hundred she-goats and twenty he-goats, two hundred females and twenty males from the sheep,
01O||32||15||Thirty camels with their young ones, forty cows, ten oxen, twenty asses, and ten young asses.
01O||32||16||These he gave to his servants, every herd by itself, and he said to his servants, Go on before me, and let there be a space between one herd and another.
01O||32||17||And he gave orders to the first, saying, When my brother Esau comes to you and says, Whose servant are you, and where are you going, and whose are these herds?
01O||32||18||Then say to him, These are your servant Jacob's; they are an offering for my lord, for Esau; and he himself is coming after us.
01O||32||19||And he gave the same orders to the second and the third and to all those who were with the herds, saying, This is what you are to say to Esau when you see him;
01O||32||20||And you are to say further, Jacob, your servant, is coming after us. For he said to himself, I will take away his wrath by the offering which I have sent on, and then I will come before him: it may be that I will have grace in his eyes.
01O||32||21||So the servants with the offerings went on in front, and he himself took his rest that night in the tents with his people.
01O||32||22||And in the night he got up, and taking with him his two wives and the two servant-women and his eleven children, he went over the river Jabbok.
01O||32||23||He took them and sent them over the stream with all he had.
01O||32||24||Then Jacob was by himself; and a man was fighting with him till dawn.
01O||32||25||But when the man saw that he was not able to overcome Jacob, he gave him a blow in the hollow part of his leg, so that his leg was damaged.
01O||32||26||And he said to him, Let me go now, for the dawn is near. But Jacob said, I will not let you go till you have given me your blessing.
01O||32||27||Then he said, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.
01O||32||28||And he said, Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel: for in your fight with God and with men you have overcome.
01O||32||29||Then Jacob said, What is your name? And he said, What is my name to you? Then he gave him a blessing.
01O||32||30||And Jacob gave that place the name of Peniel, saying, I have seen God face to face, and still I am living.
01O||32||31||And while he was going past Peniel, the sun came up. And he went with unequal steps because of his damaged leg.
01O||32||32||For this reason the children of Israel, even today, never take that muscle in the hollow of the leg as food, because the hollow of Jacob's leg was touched.
01O||33||1||Then Jacob, lifting up his eyes, saw Esau coming with his four hundred men. So he made a division of the children between Leah and Rachel and the two women-servants.
01O||33||2||He put the servants and their children in front, Leah and her children after them, and Rachel and Joseph at the back.
01O||33||3||And he himself, going before them, went down on his face to the earth seven times till he came near his brother.
01O||33||4||Then Esau came running up to him, and folding him in his arms, gave him a kiss: and the two of them were overcome with weeping.
01O||33||5||Then Esau, lifting up his eyes, saw the women and the children, and said, Who are these with you? And he said, The children whom God in his mercy has given to your servant.
01O||33||6||Then the servants and their children came near, and went down on their faces.
01O||33||7||And Leah came near with her children, and then Joseph and Rachel, and they did the same.
01O||33||8||And he said, What were all those herds which I saw on the way? And Jacob said, They were an offering so that I might have grace in my lord's eyes.
01O||33||9||But Esau said, I have enough; keep what is yours, my brother, for yourself.
01O||33||10||And Jacob said, Not so; but if I have grace in your eyes, take them as a sign of my love, for I have seen your face as one may see the face of God, and you have been pleased with me.
01O||33||11||Take my offering then, with my blessing; for God has been very good to me and I have enough: so at his strong request, he took it.
01O||33||12||And he said, Let us go on our journey together, and I will go in front.
01O||33||13||But Jacob said, My lord may see that the children are only small, and there are young ones in my flocks and herds: one day's over-driving will be the destruction of all the flock.
01O||33||14||Do you, my lord, go on before your servant; I will come on slowly, at the rate at which the cattle and the children are able to go, till I come to my lord at Seir.
01O||33||15||And Esau said, Then keep some of my men with you. And he said, What need is there for that, if my lord is pleased with me?
01O||33||16||So Esau, turning back that day, went on his way to Seir.
01O||33||17||And Jacob went on to Succoth, where he made a house for himself and put up tents for his cattle: for this reason the place was named Succoth.
01O||33||18||So Jacob came safely from Paddan-aram to the town of Shechem in the land of Canaan, and put up his tents near the town.
01O||33||19||And for a hundred bits of money he got from the children of Hamor, the builder of Shechem, the field in which he had put up his tents.
01O||33||20||And there he put up an altar, naming it El, the God of Israel.
01O||34||1||Now Dinah, the daughter whom Leah had by Jacob, went out to see the women of that country.
01O||34||2||And when Shechem, the son of Hamor the Hivite who was the chief of that land, saw her, he took her by force and had connection with her.
01O||34||3||Then his heart went out in love to Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, and he said comforting words to her.
01O||34||4||And Shechem said to Hamor, his father, Get me this girl for my wife.
01O||34||5||Now Jacob had word of what Shechem had done to his daughter; but his sons were in the fields with the cattle, and Jacob said nothing till they came.
01O||34||6||Then Hamor, the father of Shechem, came out to have a talk with Jacob.
01O||34||7||Now the sons of Jacob came in from the fields when they had news of it, and they were wounded and very angry because of the shame he had done in Israel by having connection with Jacob's daughter; and they said, Such a thing is not to be done.
01O||34||8||But Hamor said to them, Shechem, my son, is full of desire for your daughter: will you then give her to him for a wife?
01O||34||9||And let our two peoples be joined together; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
01O||34||10||Go on living with us, and the country will be open to you; do trade and get property there.
01O||34||11||And Shechem said to her father and her brothers, If you will give ear to my request, whatever you say I will give to you.
01O||34||12||However great you make the bride-price and payment, I will give it; only let me have the girl for my wife.
01O||34||13||But the sons of Jacob gave a false answer to Shechem and Hamor his father, because of what had been done to Dinah their sister.
01O||34||14||And they said, It is not possible for us to give our sister to one who is without circumcision, for that would be a cause of shame to us:
01O||34||15||But on this condition only will we come to an agreement with you: if every male among you becomes like us and undergoes circumcision;
01O||34||16||Then we will give our daughters to you and take your daughters to us and go on living with you as one people.
01O||34||17||But if you will not undergo circumcision as we say, then we will take our daughter and go.
01O||34||18||And their words were pleasing to Hamor and his son Shechem.
01O||34||19||And without loss of time the young man did as they said, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter, and he was the noblest of his father's house.
01O||34||20||Then Hamor and Shechem, his son, went to the meeting-place of their town, and said to the men of the town,
01O||34||21||It is the desire of these men to be at peace with us; let them then go on living in this country and doing trade here, for the country is wide open before them; let us take their daughters as wives and let us give them our daughters.
01O||34||22||But these men will make an agreement with us to go on living with us and to become one people, only on the condition that every male among us undergoes circumcision as they have done.
01O||34||23||Then will not their cattle and their goods and all their beasts be ours? so let us come to an agreement with them so that they may go on living with us.
01O||34||24||Then all the men of the town gave ear to the words of Hamor and Shechem his son; and every male in the town underwent circumcision.
01O||34||25||But on the third day after, before the wounds were well, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and came into the town by surprise and put all the males to death.
01O||34||26||And Hamor and his son they put to death with the sword, and they took Dinah from Shechem's house and went away.
01O||34||27||And the sons of Jacob came on them when they were wounded and made waste the town because of what had been done to their sister;
01O||34||28||They took their flocks and their herds and their asses and everything in their town and in their fields,
01O||34||29||And all their wealth and all their little ones and their wives; everything in their houses they took and made them waste.
01O||34||30||And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, You have made trouble for me and given me a bad name among the people of this country, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and because we are small in number they will come together against me and make war on me; and it will be the end of me and all my people.
01O||34||31||But they said, Were we to let him make use of our sister as a loose woman?
01O||35||1||And God said to Jacob, Go up now to Beth-el and make your living-place there: and put up an altar there to the God who came to you when you were in flight from your brother Esau.
01O||35||2||Then Jacob said to all his people, Put away the strange gods which are among you, and make yourselves clean, and put on a change of clothing:
01O||35||3||And let us go up to Beth-el: and there I will make an altar to God, who gave me an answer in the day of my trouble, and was with me wherever I went.
01O||35||4||Then they gave to Jacob all the strange gods which they had, and the rings which were in their ears; and Jacob put them away under the holy tree at Shechem.
01O||35||5||So they went on their journey: and the fear of God was on the towns round about, so that they made no attack on the sons of Jacob.
01O||35||6||And Jacob came to Luz in the land of Canaan (which is the same as Beth-el), he and all his people.
01O||35||7||And there he made an altar, naming the place El-beth-el: because it was there he had the vision of God when he was in flight from his brother.
01O||35||8||And Deborah, the servant who had taken care of Rebekah from her birth, came to her end, and was put to rest near Beth-el, under the holy tree: and they gave it the name of Allon-bacuth.
01O||35||9||Now when Jacob was on his way from Paddan-aram, God came to him again and, blessing him, said,
01O||35||10||Jacob is your name, but it will be so no longer; from now your name will be Israel; so he was named Israel.
01O||35||11||And God said to him, I am God, the Ruler of all: be fertile, and have increase; a nation, truly a group of nations, will come from you, and kings will be your offspring;
01O||35||12||And the land which I gave to Abraham and Isaac, I will give to you; and to your seed after you I will give the land.
01O||35||13||Then God went up from him in the place where he had been talking with him.
01O||35||14||And Jacob put up a pillar in the place where he had been talking with God, and put a drink offering on it, and oil.
01O||35||15||And he gave to the place where God had been talking with him, the name of Beth-el.
01O||35||16||So they went on from Beth-el; and while they were still some distance from Ephrath, the pains of birth came on Rachel and she had a hard time.
01O||35||17||And when her pain was very great, the woman who was helping her said, Have no fear; for now you will have another son.
01O||35||18||And in the hour when her life went from her (for death came to her), she gave the child the name Ben-oni: but his father gave him the name of Benjamin.
01O||35||19||So Rachel came to her end and was put to rest on the road to Ephrath (which is Beth-lehem).
01O||35||20||And Jacob put up a pillar on her resting-place; which is named, The Pillar of the resting-place of Rachel, to this day.
01O||35||21||And Israel went journeying on and put up his tents on the other side of the tower of the flock.
01O||35||22||Now while they were living in that country, Reuben had connection with Bilhah, his father's servant-woman: and Israel had news of it.
01O||35||23||Now Jacob had twelve sons: the sons of Leah: Reuben, Jacob's first son, and Simeon and Levi and Judah and Issachar and Zebulun;
01O||35||24||The sons of Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin;
01O||35||25||The sons of Bilhah, Rachel's servant: Dan and Naphtali;
01O||35||26||The sons of Zilpah, Leah's servant: Gad and Asher; these are the sons whom Jacob had in Paddan-aram.
01O||35||27||And Jacob came to his father Isaac at Mamre, at Kiriath-arba, that is, Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac had been living.
01O||35||28||And Isaac was a hundred and eighty years old.
01O||35||29||Then Isaac came to his end and was put to rest with his father's people, an old man after a long life: and Jacob and Esau, his sons, put him in his last resting-place.
01O||36||1||Now these are the generations of Esau, that is to say, Edom.
01O||36||2||Esau's wives were women of Canaan: Adah, the daughter of Elon the Hittite, and Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon the Hivite,
01O||36||3||And Basemath, Ishmael's daughter, the sister of Nebaioth.
01O||36||4||Adah had a son Eliphaz; and Basemath was the mother of Reuel;
01O||36||5||Oholibamah was the mother of Jeush, Jalam, and Korah; these are the sons of Esau, whose birth took place in the land of Canaan.
01O||36||6||Esau took his wives and his sons and his daughters, and all the people of his house, and his beasts and his cattle and all his goods which he had got together in the land of Canaan, and went into the land of Seir, away from his brother Jacob.
01O||36||7||For their wealth was so great that the land was not wide enough for the two of them and all their cattle.
01O||36||8||So Esau made his living-place in the hill-country of Seir (Esau is Edom).
01O||36||9||And these are the generations of Esau, the father of the Edomites in the hill-country of Seir:
01O||36||10||These are the names of Esau's sons: Eliphaz, the son of Esau's wife Adah, and Reuel, the son of Esau's wife Basemath.
01O||36||11||The sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
01O||36||12||And Eliphaz, the son of Esau, had connection with a woman named Timna, who gave birth to Amalek: all these were the children of Esau's wife Adah.
01O||36||13||And these are the sons of Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah: they were the children of Esau's wife Basemath.
01O||36||14||And these are the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah, the daughter of Anah, the daughter of Zibeon: she was the mother of Jeush, Jalam, and Korah.
01O||36||15||These were the chiefs among the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz, Esau's first son: Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz,
01O||36||16||Korah, Gatam, Amalek: all these were chiefs in the land of Edom, the offspring of Eliphaz, the seed of Adah.
01O||36||17||And these are the sons of Esau's son Reuel: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, Mizzah: these were the chiefs of Reuel in the land of Edom, the children of Esau's wife Basemath.
01O||36||18||And these are the sons of Esau's wife Oholibamah: Jeush, Jalam, and Korah: these were the chiefs who came from Esau's wife Oholibamah, daughter of Anah.
01O||36||19||These were the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these were their chiefs.
01O||36||20||These are the sons of Seir the Horite who were living in that country; Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
01O||36||21||Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan: these are the chiefs of the Horites, offspring of Seir in the land of Edom.
01O||36||22||The children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; Lotan's sister was Timna.
01O||36||23||And these are the children of Shobal: Alvan, Manahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
01O||36||24||And these are the children of Zibeon: Aiah and Anah; that same Anah who made the discovery of the water-springs in the waste land, when he was looking after the asses of his father Zibeon.
01O||36||25||And these are the children of Anah: Dishon and Oholibamah his daughter.
01O||36||26||These are the children of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Keran.
01O||36||27||These are the children of Ezer: Bilhan, Zaavan, and Akan.
01O||36||28||These are the children of Dishan: Uz and Aran.
01O||36||29||These were the Horite chiefs: Lotan, Shobal, Zibeon, Anah,
01O||36||30||Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan. Such were the Horite chiefs in their order in the land of Seir.
01O||36||31||And these are the kings who were ruling in the land of Edom before there was any king over the children of Israel.
01O||36||32||Bela, son of Beor, was king in Edom, and the name of his chief town was Dinhabah.
01O||36||33||At his death, Jobab, son of Zerah of Bozrah, became king in his place.
01O||36||34||And at the death of Jobab, Husham, from the country of the Temanites, became king in his place.
01O||36||35||And at the death of Husham, Hadad, son of Bedad, who overcame the Midianites in the field of Moab, became king; his chief town was named Avith.
01O||36||36||And at the death of Hadad, Samlah of Masrekah became king.
01O||36||37||And at the death of Samlah, Shaul of Rehoboth by the River became king in his place.
01O||36||38||And at the death of Shaul, Baal-hanan, son of Achbor, became king.
01O||36||39||And at the death of Baal-hanan, Hadar became king in his place; his chief town was named Pau, and his wife's name was Mehetabel; she was the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Me-zahab.
01O||36||40||These are the names of the chiefs of Esau in the order of their families and their places: Timna, Alvah, Jetheth,
01O||36||41||Oholibamah, Elah, Pinon,
01O||36||42||Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,
01O||36||43||Magdiel, Iram; these are the Edomite chiefs, in their places in their heritage; this is Esau, the father of the Edomites.
01O||37||1||Now Jacob was living in the land where his father had made a place for himself, in the land of Canaan.
01O||37||2||These are the generations of Jacob: Joseph, a boy seventeen years old, was looking after the flock, together with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph gave their father a bad account of them.
01O||37||3||Now the love which Israel had for Joseph was greater than his love for all his other children, because he got him when he was an old man: and he had a long coat made for him.
01O||37||4||And because his brothers saw that Joseph was dearer to his father than all the others, they were full of hate for him, and would not say a kind word to him.
01O||37||5||Now Joseph had a dream, and he gave his brothers an account of it, which made their hate greater than ever.
01O||37||6||And he said to them, Let me give you the story of my dream.
01O||37||7||We were in the field, getting the grain stems together, and my grain kept upright, and yours came round and went down on the earth before mine.
01O||37||8||And his brothers said to him, Are you to be our king? will you have authority over us? And because of his dream and his words, their hate for him became greater than ever.
01O||37||9||Then he had another dream, and gave his brothers an account of it, saying, I have had another dream: the sun and the moon and eleven stars gave honour to me.
01O||37||10||And he gave word of it to his father and his brothers; but his father protesting said, What sort of a dream is this? am I and your mother and your brothers to go down on our faces to the earth before you?
01O||37||11||And his brothers were full of envy; but his father kept his words in mind.
01O||37||12||Now his brothers went to keep watch over their father's flock in Shechem.
01O||37||13||And Israel said to Joseph, Are not your brothers with the flock in Shechem? come, I will send you to them. And he said to him, Here am I.
01O||37||14||And he said to him, Go now, and see if your brothers are well and how the flock is; then come back and give me word. So he sent him out of the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
01O||37||15||And a man saw him wandering in the country, and said to him, What are you looking for?
01O||37||16||And he said, I am looking for my brothers; please give me word of where they are keeping their flock.
01O||37||17||And the man said, They have gone away from here, for they said in my hearing, Let us go to Dothan. So Joseph went after them and came up with them at Dothan.
01O||37||18||But they saw him when he was a long way off, and before he came near them they made a secret design against him to put him to death;
01O||37||19||Saying to one another, See, here comes this dreamer.
01O||37||20||Let us now put him to death and put his body into one of these holes, and we will say, An evil beast has put him to death: then we will see what becomes of his dreams.
01O||37||21||But Reuben, hearing these words, got him out of their hands, saying, Let us not take his life.
01O||37||22||Do not put him to a violent death, but let him be placed in one of the holes; this he said to keep him safe from their hands, with the purpose of taking him back to his father again.
01O||37||23||So when Joseph came to his brothers, they took off his long coat which he had on;
01O||37||24||And they took him and put him in the hole: now the hole had no water in it.
01O||37||25||Then seating themselves, they took their meal: and looking up, they saw a travelling band of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead on their way to Egypt, with spices and perfumes on their camels.
01O||37||26||And Judah said to his brothers, What profit is there in putting our brother to death and covering up his blood?
01O||37||27||Let us give him to these Ishmaelites for a price, and let us not put violent hands on him, for he is our brother, our flesh. And his brothers gave ear to him.
01O||37||28||And some traders from Midian went by; so pulling Joseph up out of the hole, they gave him to the Ishmaelites for twenty bits of silver, and they took him to Egypt.
01O||37||29||Now when Reuben came back to the hole, Joseph was not there; and giving signs of grief,
01O||37||30||He went back to his brothers, and said, The child is gone; what am I to do?
01O||37||31||Then they took Joseph's coat, and put on it some of the blood from a young goat which they had put to death,
01O||37||32||And they took the coat to their father, and said, We came across this; is it your son's coat or not?
01O||37||33||And he saw that it was, and said, It is my son's coat; an evil beast has put him to death; without doubt Joseph has come to a cruel end.
01O||37||34||Then Jacob, giving signs of grief, put on haircloth, and went on weeping for his son day after day.
01O||37||35||And all his sons and all his daughters came to give him comfort, but he would not be comforted, saying with weeping, I will go down to the underworld to my son. So great was his father's sorrow for him.
01O||37||36||And in Egypt the men of Midian gave him for a price to Potiphar, a captain of high position in Pharaoh's house.
01O||38||1||Now at that time, Judah went away from his brothers and became the friend of a man of Adullam named Hirah.
01O||38||2||And there he saw the daughter of a certain man of Canaan named Shua, and took her as his wife.
01O||38||3||And she gave birth to a son, and he gave him the name Er.
01O||38||4||And again she gave birth to a son, and he gave him the name Onan.
01O||38||5||Then she had another son, to whom she gave the name Shelah; she was at Chezib when the birth took place.
01O||38||6||And Judah took a wife for his first son Er, and her name was Tamar.
01O||38||7||Now Er, Judah's first son, did evil in the eyes of the Lord, so that he put him to death.
01O||38||8||Then Judah said to Onan, Go in to your brother's wife and do what it is right for a husband's brother to do; make her your wife and get offspring for your brother.
01O||38||9||But Onan, seeing that the offspring would not be his, went in to his brother's wife, but let his seed go on to the earth, so that he might not get offspring for his brother.
01O||38||10||And what he did was evil in the eyes of the Lord, so that he put him to death, like his brother.
01O||38||11||Then Judah said to Tamar, his daughter-in-law, Go back to your father's house and keep yourself as a widow till my son Shelah becomes a man: for he had in his mind the thought that death might come to him as it had come to his brothers. So Tamar went back to her father's house.
01O||38||12||And after a time, Bath-shua, Judah's wife, came to her end; and after Judah was comforted for her loss, he went to Timnah, where they were cutting the wool of his sheep, and his friend Hirah of Adullam went with him.
01O||38||13||And when Tamar had news that her father-in-law was going up to Timnah to the wool-cutting,
01O||38||14||She took off her widow's clothing, and covering herself with her veil, she took her seat near Enaim on the road to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was now a man, but she had not been made his wife.
01O||38||15||When Judah saw her he took her to be a loose woman of the town, because her face was covered.
01O||38||16||And turning to her by the roadside, he said to her, Let me come in to you; for he had no idea that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, What will you give me as my price?
01O||38||17||And he said, I will give you a young goat from the flock. And she said, What will you give me as a sign till you send it?
01O||38||18||And he said, What would you have? And she said, Your ring and its cord and the stick in your hand. So he gave them to her and went in to her, and she became with child by him.
01O||38||19||Then she got up and went away and took off her veil and put on her widow's clothing.
01O||38||20||Then Judah sent his friend Hirah with the young goat, to get back the things which he had given as a sign to the woman: but she was not there.
01O||38||21||And he put questions to the men of the place, saying, Where is the loose woman who was in Enaim by the wayside? And they said, There was no such woman there.
01O||38||22||So he went back to Judah, and said, I have not seen her, and the men of the place say that there is no such woman there.
01O||38||23||And Judah said, Let her keep the things, so that we may not be shamed; I sent the young goat, but you did not see the woman.
01O||38||24||Now about three months after this, word came to Judah that Tamar, his daughter-in-law, had been acting like a loose woman and was with child. And Judah said, Take her out and let her be burned.
01O||38||25||And while she was being taken out, she sent word to her father-in-law, saying, The man whose property these things are, is the father of my child: say then, whose are this ring and this cord and this stick?
01O||38||26||Then Judah said openly that they were his, and said, She is more upright than I am, for I did not give her to Shelah my son. And he had no more connection with her.
01O||38||27||And when the time came for her to give birth, it was clear that there were two children in her body.
01O||38||28||And while she was in the act of giving birth, one of them put out his hand; and the woman who was with her put a red thread round his hand, saying, This one came out first.
01O||38||29||But then he took his hand back again, and his brother came first to birth: and the woman said, What an opening you have made for yourself! So he was named Perez.
01O||38||30||And then his brother came out, with the red thread round his hand, and he was named Zerah.
01O||39||1||Now Joseph was taken down to Egypt; and Potiphar the Egyptian, a captain of high position in Pharaoh's house, got him for a price from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.
01O||39||2||And the Lord was with Joseph, and he did well; and he was living in the house of his master the Egyptian.
01O||39||3||And his master saw that the Lord was with him, making everything he did go well.
01O||39||4||And having a high opinion of Joseph as his servant, he made him the overseer of his house and gave him control over all he had.
01O||39||5||And from the time when he made him overseer and gave him control of all his property, the blessing of the Lord was with the Egyptian, because of Joseph; the blessing of the Lord was on all he had, in the house and in the field.
01O||39||6||And he gave Joseph control of all his property, keeping no account of anything, but only the food which was put before him. Now Joseph was very beautiful in form and face.
01O||39||7||And after a time, his master's wife, looking on Joseph with desire, said to him, Be my lover.
01O||39||8||But he would not, and said to her, You see that my master keeps no account of what I do in his house, and has put all his property in my control;
01O||39||9||So that no one has more authority in this house than I have; he has kept nothing back from me but you, because you are his wife; how then may I do this great wrong, sinning against God?
01O||39||10||And day after day she went on requesting Joseph to come to her and be her lover, but he would not give ear to her.
01O||39||11||Now one day he went into the house to do his work; and not one of the men of the house was inside.
01O||39||12||And pulling at his coat, she said, Come to my bed; but slipping out of his coat, he went running away.
01O||39||13||And when she saw that he had got away, letting her keep his coat,
01O||39||14||She sent for the men of her house and said to them, See, he has let a Hebrew come here and make sport of us; he came to my bed, and I gave a loud cry;
01O||39||15||And hearing it he went running out without his coat.
01O||39||16||And she kept his coat by her, till his master came back.
01O||39||17||Then she gave him the same story, saying, The Hebrew servant whom you have taken into our house came in to make sport of me;
01O||39||18||And when I gave a loud cry he went running out without his coat.
01O||39||19||And hearing his wife's account of what his servant had done, he became very angry.
01O||39||20||And Joseph's master took him and put him in prison, in the place where the king's prisoners were kept in chains, and he was there in the prison-house.
01O||39||21||But the Lord was with Joseph, and was good to him, and made the keeper of the prison his friend.
01O||39||22||And the keeper of the prison put all the prisoners under Joseph's control, and he was responsible for whatever was done there.
01O||39||23||And the keeper of the prison gave no attention to anything which was under his care, because the Lord was with him; and the Lord made everything he did go well.
01O||40||1||Now after these things the chief servant who had the care of the wine, and the chief bread-maker in Pharaoh's house, did something against Pharaoh's orders;
01O||40||2||And Pharaoh was angry with his two servants, with the chief wine-servant and the chief bread-maker;
01O||40||3||And he put them in prison under the care of the captain of the army, in the same prison where Joseph himself was shut up.
01O||40||4||And the captain put them in Joseph's care, and he did what was needed for them; and they were kept in prison for some time.
01O||40||5||And these two had a dream on the same night; the chief wine-servant and the chief bread-maker of the king of Egypt, who were in prison, the two of them had dreams with a special sense.
01O||40||6||And in the morning when Joseph came to them he saw that they were looking sad.
01O||40||7||And he said to the servants of Pharaoh who were in prison with him, Why are you looking so sad?
01O||40||8||Then they said to him, We have had a dream, and no one is able to give us the sense. And Joseph said, Does not the sense of dreams come from God? what was your dream?
01O||40||9||Then the chief wine-servant gave Joseph an account of his dream, and said, In my dream I saw a vine before me;
01O||40||10||And on the vine were three branches; and it seemed as if it put out buds and flowers, and from them came grapes ready for cutting.
01O||40||11||And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and crushing them into Pharaoh's cup, gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.
01O||40||12||Then Joseph said, This is the sense of your dream: the three branches are three days;
01O||40||13||After three days Pharaoh will give you honour, and put you back into your place, and you will give him his cup as you did before, when you were his wine-servant.
01O||40||14||But keep me in mind when things go well for you, and be good to me and say a good word for me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison:
01O||40||15||For truly I was taken by force from the land of the Hebrews; and I have done nothing for which I might be put in prison.
01O||40||16||Now when the chief bread-maker saw that the first dream had a good sense, he said to Joseph, I had a dream; and in my dream there were three baskets of white bread on my head;
01O||40||17||And in the top basket were all sorts of cooked meats for Pharaoh; and the birds were taking them out of the baskets on my head.
01O||40||18||Then Joseph said, This is the sense of your dream: the three baskets are three days;
01O||40||19||After three days Pharaoh will take you out of prison, hanging you on a tree, so that your flesh will be food for birds.
01O||40||20||Now the third day was Pharaoh's birthday, and he gave a feast for all his servants; and he gave honour to the chief wine-servant and the chief bread-maker among the others.
01O||40||21||And he put the chief wine-servant back in his old place; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.
01O||40||22||But the chief bread-maker was put to death by hanging, as Joseph had said.
01O||40||23||But the wine-servant did not keep Joseph in mind or give a thought to him.
01O||41||1||Now after two years had gone by, Pharaoh had a dream; and in his dream he was by the side of the Nile;
01O||41||2||And out of the Nile came seven cows, good-looking and fat, and their food was the river-grass.
01O||41||3||And after them seven other cows came out of the Nile, poor-looking and thin; and they were by the side of the other cows.
01O||41||4||And the seven thin cows made a meal of the seven fat cows. Then Pharaoh came out of his sleep.
01O||41||5||But he went to sleep again and had a second dream, in which he saw seven heads of grain, full and good, all on one stem.
01O||41||6||And after them came up seven other heads, thin and wasted by the east wind.
01O||41||7||And the seven thin heads made a meal of the good heads. And when Pharaoh was awake he saw it was a dream.
01O||41||8||And in the morning his spirit was troubled; and he sent for all the wise men of Egypt and all the holy men, and put his dream before them, but no one was able to give him the sense of it.
01O||41||9||Then the chief wine-servant said to Pharaoh, The memory of my sin comes back to me now;
01O||41||10||Pharaoh had been angry with his servants, and had put me in prison in the house of the captain of the army, together with the chief bread-maker;
01O||41||11||And we had a dream on the same night, the two of us, and the dreams had a special sense.
01O||41||12||And there was with us a young Hebrew, the captain's servant, and when we put our dreams before him, he gave us the sense of them.
01O||41||13||And it came about as he said: I was put back in my place, and the bread-maker was put to death by hanging.
01O||41||14||Then Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and they took him quickly out of prison; and when his hair had been cut and his dress changed, he came before Pharaoh.
01O||41||15||And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have had a dream, and no one is able to give me the sense of it; now it has come to my ears that you are able to give the sense of a dream when it is put before you.
01O||41||16||Then Joseph said, Without God there will be no answer of peace for Pharaoh.
01O||41||17||Then Pharaoh said, In my dream I was by the side of the Nile:
01O||41||18||And out of the Nile came seven cows, fat and good-looking, and their food was the river-grass;
01O||41||19||Then after them came seven other cows, very thin and poor-looking, worse than any I ever saw in the land of Egypt;
01O||41||20||And the thin cows made a meal of the seven fat cows who came up first;
01O||41||21||And even with the fat cows inside them they seemed as bad as before. And so I came out of my sleep.
01O||41||22||And again in a dream I saw seven heads of grain, full and good, coming up on one stem:
01O||41||23||And then I saw seven other heads, dry, thin, and wasted by the east wind, coming up after them:
01O||41||24||And the seven thin heads made a meal of the seven good heads; and I put this dream before the wise men, but not one of them was able to give me the sense of it.
01O||41||25||Then Joseph said, These two dreams have the same sense: God has made clear to Pharaoh what he is about to do.
01O||41||26||The seven fat cows are seven years, and the seven good heads of grain are seven years: the two have the same sense.
01O||41||27||The seven thin and poor-looking cows who came up after them are seven years; and the seven heads of grain, dry and wasted by the east wind, are seven years when there will be no food.
01O||41||28||As I said to Pharaoh before, God has made clear to him what he is about to do.
01O||41||29||Seven years are coming in which there will be great wealth of grain in Egypt;
01O||41||30||And after that will come seven years when there will not be enough food; and the memory of the good years will go from men's minds; and the land will be made waste by the bad years;
01O||41||31||And men will have no memory of the good time because of the need which will come after, for it will be very bitter.
01O||41||32||And this dream came to Pharaoh twice, because this thing is certain, and God will quickly make it come about.
01O||41||33||And now let Pharaoh make search for a man of wisdom and good sense, and put him in authority over the land of Egypt.
01O||41||34||Let Pharaoh do this, and let him put overseers over the land of Egypt to put in store a fifth part of the produce of the land in the good years.
01O||41||35||And let them get together all the food in those good years and make a store of grain under Pharaoh's control for the use of the towns, and let them keep it.
01O||41||36||And let that food be kept in store for the land till the seven bad years which are to come in Egypt; so that the land may not come to destruction through need of food.
01O||41||37||And this seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants.
01O||41||38||Then Pharaoh said to his servants, Where may we get such a man as this, a man in whom is the spirit of God?
01O||41||39||And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Seeing that God has made all this clear to you, there is no other man of such wisdom and good sense as you:
01O||41||40||You, then, are to be over my house, and all my people will be ruled by your word: only as king will I be greater than you.
01O||41||41||And Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have put you over all the land of Egypt.
01O||41||42||Then Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, and he had him clothed with the best linen, and put a chain of gold round his neck;
01O||41||43||And he made him take his seat in the second of his carriages; and they went before him crying, Make way! So he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.
01O||41||44||Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh; and without your order no man may do anything in all the land of Egypt.
01O||41||45||And Pharaoh gave Joseph the name of Zaphnath-paaneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Poti-phera, the priest of On, to be his wife. So Joseph went through all the land of Egypt.
01O||41||46||Now Joseph was thirty years old when he came before Pharaoh, king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from before the face of Pharaoh and went through all the land of Egypt.
01O||41||47||Now in the seven good years the earth gave fruit in masses.
01O||41||48||And Joseph got together all the food of those seven years, and made a store of food in the towns: the produce of the fields round every town was stored up in the town.
01O||41||49||So he got together a store of grain like the sand of the sea; so great a store that after a time he gave up measuring it, for it might not be measured.
01O||41||50||And before the time of need, Joseph had two sons, to whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-phera, priest of On, gave birth.
01O||41||51||And to the first he gave the name Manasseh, for he said, God has taken away from me all memory of my hard life and of my father's house.
01O||41||52||And to the second he gave the name Ephraim, for he said, God has given me fruit in the land of my sorrow.
01O||41||53||And so the seven good years in Egypt came to an end.
01O||41||54||Then came the first of the seven years of need as Joseph had said: and in every other land they were short of food; but in the land of Egypt there was bread.
01O||41||55||And when all the land of Egypt was in need of food, the people came crying to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to the people, Go to Joseph, and whatever he says to you, do it.
01O||41||56||And everywhere on the earth they were short of food; then Joseph, opening all his store-houses, gave the people of Egypt grain for money; so great was the need of food in the land of Egypt.
01O||41||57||And all lands sent to Egypt, to Joseph, to get grain, for the need was great over all the earth.
01O||42||1||Now Jacob, hearing that there was grain in Egypt, said to his sons, Why are you looking at one another?
01O||42||2||And he said, I have had news that there is grain in Egypt: go down there and get grain for us, so that life and not death may be ours.
01O||42||3||So Joseph's ten brothers went down to get grain from Egypt.
01O||42||4||But Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph's brother, with them, for fear, as he said, that some evil might come to him.
01O||42||5||And the sons of Israel came with all the others to get grain: for they were very short of food in the land of Canaan.
01O||42||6||Now Joseph was ruler over all the land, and it was he who gave out the grain to all the people of the land; and Joseph's brothers came before him and went down on their faces to the earth.
01O||42||7||And when Joseph saw his brothers, it was clear to him who they were, but he made himself strange to them, and talking roughly to them, said, Where do you come from? And they said, From the land of Canaan, to get food.
01O||42||8||Now though Joseph saw that these were his brothers, they had no idea who he was.
01O||42||9||Then the memory of his dreams about them came back to Joseph, and he said to them, You have come secretly to see how poor the land is.
01O||42||10||And they said to him, Not so, my lord: your servants have come with money to get food.
01O||42||11||We are all one man's sons, we are true men; we have not come with any secret purpose.
01O||42||12||And he said to them, No, but you have come to see how poor the land is.
01O||42||13||Then they said, We your servants are twelve brothers, sons of one man in the land of Canaan; the youngest of us is now with our father, and one is dead.
01O||42||14||And Joseph said, It is as I said; you have come with some secret purpose;
01O||42||15||But in this way will you be put to the test: by the life of Pharaoh, you will not go away from this place till your youngest brother comes here.
01O||42||16||Send one of your number to get your brother, and the rest of you will be kept in prison, so that your words may be tested to see if you are true; if not, by the life of Pharaoh, your purpose is certainly secret.
01O||42||17||So he put them in prison for three days.
01O||42||18||And on the third day Joseph said to them, Do this, if you would keep your lives: for I am a god-fearing man:
01O||42||19||If you are true men, let one of you be kept in prison, while you go and take grain for the needs of your families;
01O||42||20||And come back to me with your youngest brother, so that your words may be seen to be true, and you will not be put to death. This is what you are to do.
01O||42||21||And they said to one another, Truly, we did wrong to our brother, for we saw his grief of mind, and we did not give ear to his prayers; that is why this trouble has come on us.
01O||42||22||And Reuben said to them, Did I not say to you, Do the child no wrong? but you gave no attention; so now, punishment has come on us for his blood.
01O||42||23||They were not conscious that the sense of their words was clear to Joseph, for he had been talking to them through one who had knowledge of their language.
01O||42||24||And turning away from them, he was overcome with weeping; then he went on talking to them again and took Simeon and put chains on him before their eyes.
01O||42||25||Then Joseph gave orders for their bags to be made full of grain, and for every man's money to be put back into his bag, and for food to be given them for the journey: which was done.
01O||42||26||Then they put the bags of grain on their asses and went away.
01O||42||27||Now at their night's resting-place one of them, opening his bag to give his ass some food, saw his money in the mouth of the bag.
01O||42||28||And he said to his brothers, My money has been given back: it is in my bag; then their hearts became full of fear, and turning to one another they said, What is this which God has done to us?
01O||42||29||So when they came to Jacob their father, in the land of Canaan, they gave him an account of all their experiences, saying,
01O||42||30||The man who is the ruler of the country was rough with us and put us in prison, saying that we had come with a secret evil purpose.
01O||42||31||And we said to him, We are true men, we have no evil designs;
01O||42||32||We are twelve brothers, sons of our father; one is dead, and the youngest is now with our father in the land of Canaan.
01O||42||33||And the ruler of the land said, In this way I may be certain that you are true men; let one of you be kept here with me, while you go and take grain for the needs of your families;
01O||42||34||And come back to me with your youngest brother: then I will be certain that you are true men, and I will give your brother back to you and let you do trade in the land.
01O||42||35||And when they took the grain out of their bags, it was seen that every man's parcel of money was in his bag; and when they and their father saw the money, they were full of fear.
01O||42||36||And Jacob their father said to them, You have taken my children from me: Joseph is gone and Simeon is gone, and now you would take Benjamin away; all these things have come on me.
01O||42||37||And Reuben said, Put my two sons to death if I do not come back to you with him; let him be in my care and I will give him safely back to you.
01O||42||38||And he said, I will not let my son go down with you; for his brother is dead and he is all I have: if evil overtakes him on the journey, then through you will my grey head go down to the underworld in sorrow.
01O||43||1||Now the land was in bitter need of food.
01O||43||2||And when the grain which they had got in Egypt was all used up, their father said to them, Go again and get us a little food.
01O||43||3||And Judah said to him, The man said to us with an oath, You are not to come before me again without your brother.
01O||43||4||If you will let our brother go with us, we will go down and get food:
01O||43||5||But if you will not send him, we will not go down: for the man said to us, You are not to come before me if your brother is not with you.
01O||43||6||And Israel said, Why were you so cruel to me as to say to him that you had a brother?
01O||43||7||And they said, The man put a number of questions to us about ourselves and our family, saying, Is your father still living? have you another brother? And we had to give him answers; how were we to have any idea that he would say, Come back with your brother?
01O||43||8||Then Judah said to Israel, his father, Send the boy with me, and let us be up and going, so that we and you and our little ones may not come to destruction.
01O||43||9||Put him into my care and make me responsible for him: if I do not give him safely back to you, let mine be the sin for ever.
01O||43||10||Truly, if we had not let the time go by, we might have come back again by now.
01O||43||11||Then their father Israel said to them, If it has to be so, then do this: take of the best fruits of the land in your vessels to give the man, perfumes and honey and spices and nuts:
01O||43||12||And take twice as much money with you; that is to say, take back the money which was put in your bags, for it may have been an error;
01O||43||13||And take your brother and go back to the man:
01O||43||14||And may God, the Ruler of all, give you mercy before the man, so that he may give you back your other brother and Benjamin. If my children are to be taken from me; there is no help for it.
01O||43||15||So they took what their father said for the man, and twice as much money in their hands, and Benjamin, and went on their journey to Egypt, and came before Joseph.
01O||43||16||And when Joseph saw Benjamin, he said to his chief servant, Take these men into my house, and make ready a meal, for they will take food with me in the middle of the day.
01O||43||17||And the servant did as Joseph said, and took the men into Joseph's house.
01O||43||18||Now the men were full of fear because they had been taken into Joseph's house and they said, It is because of the money which was put back in our bags the first time; he is looking for something against us, so that he may come down on us and take us and our asses for his use.
01O||43||19||So they went up to Joseph's chief servant at the door of the house,
01O||43||20||And said, O my lord, we only came down the first time to get food;
01O||43||21||And when we came to our night's resting-place, on opening our bags we saw that every man's money was in the mouth of his bag, all our money in full weight: and we have it with us to give it back;
01O||43||22||As well as more money, with which to get food: we have no idea who put our money in our bags.
01O||43||23||Then the servant said, Peace be with you: have no fear: your God, even the God of your father, has put wealth in your bags for you: I had your money. Then he let Simeon come out to them.
01O||43||24||And the servant took them into Joseph's house, and gave them water for washing their feet; and he gave their asses food.
01O||43||25||And they got ready the things for Joseph before he came in the middle of the day: for word was given to them that they were to have a meal there.
01O||43||26||And when Joseph came in, they gave him the things which they had for him, and went down to the earth before him.
01O||43||27||And he said, How are you? is your father well, the old man of whom you were talking to me? is he still living?
01O||43||28||And they said, Your servant, our father, is well, he is still living. And they went down on their faces before him.
01O||43||29||Then, lifting up his eyes, he saw Benjamin, his brother, his mother's son, and he said, Is this your youngest brother of whom you gave me word? And he said, God be good to you, my son.
01O||43||30||Then Joseph's heart went out to his brother, and he went quickly into his room, for he was overcome with weeping.
01O||43||31||Then, after washing his face, he came out, and controlling his feelings said, Put food before us.
01O||43||32||And they put a meal ready for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians who were with him by themselves; because the Egyptians may not take food with the Hebrews, for that would make them unclean.
01O||43||33||And they were all given their seats before him in order of birth, from the oldest to the youngest: so that they were looking at one another in wonder.
01O||43||34||And Joseph sent food to them from his table, but he sent five times as much to Benjamin as to any of the others. And they took wine freely with him.
01O||44||1||Then he gave orders to the servant who was over his house, saying, Put as much food into the men's bags as will go into them, and put every man's money in the mouth of his bag;
01O||44||2||And put my cup, my silver cup, in the youngest one's bag, with his money. So he did as Joseph said.
01O||44||3||And at dawn the men, with their asses, were sent away.
01O||44||4||And when they had gone only a little way out of the town, Joseph said to the servant who was over his house, Go after them; and when you overtake them, say to them, Why have you done evil in reward for good?
01O||44||5||Is not this the cup from which my lord takes wine and by which he gets knowledge of the future? Truly, you have done evil.
01O||44||6||So he overtook them and said these words to them.
01O||44||7||And they said to him, Why does my lord say such words as these? far be it from your servants to do such a thing:
01O||44||8||See, the money which was in the mouth of our bags we gave back to you when we came again from Canaan: how then might we take silver or gold from your lord's house?
01O||44||9||If it comes to light that any of your servants has done this, let him be put to death, and we will be your lord's servants.
01O||44||10||And he said, Let it be as you say: he in whose bag it is seen will become my servant; and you will not be responsible.
01O||44||11||Then every man quickly got his bag down and undid it.
01O||44||12||And he made a search, starting with the oldest and ending with the youngest; and the cup was in Benjamin's bag.
01O||44||13||Then in bitter grief they put the bags on the asses again and went back to the town.
01O||44||14||So Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house; and he was still there: and they went down on their faces before him.
01O||44||15||And Joseph said, What is this thing which you have done? had you no thought that such a man as I would have power to see what is secret?
01O||44||16||And Judah said, What are we to say to my lord? how may we put ourselves right in his eyes? God has made clear the sin of your servants: now we are in your hands, we and the man in whose bag your cup was seen.
01O||44||17||Then he said, Far be it from me to do so: but the man who had my cup will be my servant; and you may go back to your father in peace.
01O||44||18||Then Judah came near him, and said, Let your servant say a word in my lord's ears, and let not your wrath be burning against your servant: for you are in the place of Pharaoh to us.
01O||44||19||My lord said to his servants, Have you a father or a brother?
01O||44||20||And we said to my lord, We have an old father and a young child, whom he had when he was old; his brother is dead and he is the only son of his mother, and is very dear to his father.
01O||44||21||And you said to your servants, Let him come down to me with you, so that I may see him.
01O||44||22||And we said to my lord, His father will not let him go; for if he went away his father would come to his death.
01O||44||23||But you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come with you, you will not see my face again.
01O||44||24||And when we went back to your servant, our father, we gave him an account of my lord's words.
01O||44||25||And our father said, Go again and get us a little food.
01O||44||26||And we said, Only if our youngest brother goes with us will we go down; for we may not see the man's face again if our youngest brother is not with us.
01O||44||27||And our father said to us, You have knowledge that my wife gave me two sons;
01O||44||28||The one went away from me, and I said, Truly he has come to a violent death; and from that time I have not seen him,
01O||44||29||If now you take this one from me, and some evil comes to him, you will make my grey head go down in sorrow to the underworld.
01O||44||30||If then I go back to your servant, my father, without the boy, because his life and the boy's life are one,
01O||44||31||When he sees that the boy is not with us, he will come to his death, and our father's grey head will go down in sorrow to the underworld.
01O||44||32||For I made myself responsible for the boy to my father, saying, If I do not give him safely back to you, let mine be the sin for ever.
01O||44||33||So now let me be my lord's servant here in place of the boy, and let him go back with his brothers.
01O||44||34||For how may I go back to my father without the boy, and see the evil which will come on my father?
01O||45||1||Then Joseph, unable to keep back his feelings before those who were with him, gave orders for everyone to be sent away, and no one was present when he made clear to his brothers who he was.
01O||45||2||And so loud was his weeping, that it came to the ears of the Egyptians and all Pharaoh's house.
01O||45||3||And Joseph said to his brothers, I am Joseph: is my father still living? But his brothers were not able to give him an answer for they were troubled before him.
01O||45||4||Then Joseph said to his brothers, Come near to me. And they came near, And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sent into Egypt.
01O||45||5||Now do not be troubled or angry with yourselves for sending me away, because God sent me before you to be the saviour of your lives.
01O||45||6||For these two years have been years of need, and there are still five more years to come in which there will be no ploughing or cutting of grain.
01O||45||7||God sent me before you to keep you and yours living on earth so that you might become a great nation.
01O||45||8||So now it was not you who sent me here, but God: and he has made me as a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.
01O||45||9||Now go quickly to my father, and say to him, Your son Joseph says, God has made me ruler over all the land of Egypt: come down to me straight away:
01O||45||10||The land of Goshen will be your living-place, and you will be near me; you and your children and your children's children, and your flocks and herds and all you have:
01O||45||11||And there I will take care of you, so that you and your family may not be in need, for there are still five bad years to come.
01O||45||12||Now truly, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin see, that it is my mouth which says these things to you.
01O||45||13||Give my father word of all my glory in Egypt and of all you have seen; and come back quickly with my father.
01O||45||14||Then, weeping, he took Benjamin in his arms, and Benjamin himself was weeping on Joseph's neck.
01O||45||15||Then he gave a kiss to all his brothers, weeping over them; and after that his brothers had no fear of talking to him.
01O||45||16||And news of these things went through Pharaoh's house, and it was said that Joseph's brothers were come; and it seemed good to Pharaoh and his servants.
01O||45||17||And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Say to your brothers, Put your goods on your beasts and go back to the land of Canaan;
01O||45||18||And get your father and your families and come back to me: and I will give you all the good things of Egypt, and the fat of the land will be your food.
01O||45||19||And say to them, This you are to do: take carts from the land of Egypt for your little ones and for your wives, and get your father and come back.
01O||45||20||And take no thought for your goods, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours.
01O||45||21||And the children of Israel did as he said; and Joseph gave them carts as had been ordered by Pharaoh, and food for their journey.
01O||45||22||To every one of them he gave three changes of clothing; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred bits of silver and five changes of clothing.
01O||45||23||And to his father he sent ten asses with good things from Egypt on their backs, and ten she-asses with grain and bread and food for his father on the journey.
01O||45||24||And he sent his brothers on their way, and said to them, See that you have no argument on the road.
01O||45||25||So they went up from Egypt and came to the land of Canaan, to their father Jacob.
01O||45||26||And they said to him, Joseph is living, and is ruler over all the land of Egypt. And at this word Jacob was quite overcome, for he had no faith in it.
01O||45||27||And they gave him an account of everything Joseph had said to them; and when he saw the carts which Joseph had sent for them, his spirit came back to him:
01O||45||28||And Israel said, It is enough: Joseph my son is still living; I will go and see him before my death.
01O||46||1||And Israel went on his journey with all he had, and came to Beer-sheba, where he made offerings to the God of his father Isaac.
01O||46||2||And God said to Israel in a night-vision, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
01O||46||3||And he said, I am God, the God of your father: go down to Egypt without fear, for I will make a great nation of you there:
01O||46||4||I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will see that you come back again, and at your death Joseph will put his hands on your eyes.
01O||46||5||Then Jacob went on from Beer-sheba; and the sons of Jacob took their father and their little ones and their wives in the carts which Pharaoh had sent for them.
01O||46||6||And they took their cattle and all the goods which they had got in the land of Canaan, and came to Egypt, even Jacob and all his seed:
01O||46||7||His sons and his sons' sons, his daughters and his daughters' sons and all his family he took with him into Egypt.
01O||46||8||And these are the names of the children of Israel who came into Egypt, even Jacob and all his sons: Reuben, Jacob's oldest son;
01O||46||9||And the sons of Reuben: Hanoch and Pallu and Hezron and Carmi;
01O||46||10||And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Shaul, the son of a woman of Canaan;
01O||46||11||And the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari;
01O||46||12||And the sons of Judah: Er and Onan and Shelah and Perez and Zerah: but Er and Onan had come to their death in the land of Canaan; and the sons of Perez were Hezron and Hamul.
01O||46||13||And the sons of Issachar: Tola and Puah and Job and Shimron;
01O||46||14||And the sons of Zebulun: Sered and Elon and Jahleel;
01O||46||15||All these, together with his daughter Dinah, were the children of Leah, whom Jacob had by her in Paddan-aram; they were thirty-three in number.
01O||46||16||And the sons of Gad: Ziphion and Haggi, Shuni and Ezbon, Eri and Arodi and Areli;
01O||46||17||And the sons of Asher: Jimnah and Ishvah and Ishvi and Beriah, and Sarah, their sister; and the sons of Beriah: Heber and Malchiel.
01O||46||18||These are the children of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and Jacob had these sixteen children by her.
01O||46||19||The sons of Jacob's wife Rachel: Joseph and Benjamin.
01O||46||20||And Joseph had Manasseh and Ephraim in the land of Egypt, by Asenath, the daughter of Poti-phera, priest of On.
01O||46||21||And the sons of Benjamin were Belah and Becher and Ashbel, Gera and Naaman, Ehi and Rosh, Muppim and Huppim and Ard.
01O||46||22||All these were the children of Rachel whom Jacob had by her, fourteen persons.
01O||46||23||And the son of Dan was Hushim.
01O||46||24||And the sons of Naphtali: Jahzeel and Guni and Jezer and Shillem.
01O||46||25||These were the children of Bilhah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Rachel, seven persons.
01O||46||26||All the persons who came with Jacob into Egypt, the offspring of his body, were sixty-six, without taking into account the wives of Jacob's sons.
01O||46||27||And the sons of Joseph whom he had in Egypt were two. Seventy persons of the family of Jacob came into Egypt.
01O||46||28||Now he had sent Judah before him to Goshen, to get word from Joseph; and so they came to the land of Goshen.
01O||46||29||And Joseph got his carriage ready and went to Goshen for the meeting with his father; and when he came before him, he put his arms round his neck, weeping.
01O||46||30||And Israel said to Joseph, Now that I have seen you living again, I am ready for death.
01O||46||31||And Joseph said to his brothers and to his father's people, I will go and give the news to Pharaoh, and say to him, My brothers and my father's people, from the land of Canaan, have come to me;
01O||46||32||And these men are keepers of sheep and owners of cattle, and have with them their flocks and their herds and all they have.
01O||46||33||Now when Pharaoh sends for you and says, What is your business?
01O||46||34||You are to say, Your servants have been keepers of cattle from our early days up to now, like our fathers; in this way you will be able to have the land of Goshen for yourselves; because keepers of sheep are unclean in the eyes of the Egyptians.
01O||47||1||Then Joseph went to Pharaoh, and said, My father and my brothers with their flocks and their herds and all they have, are come from Canaan, and are now in the land of Goshen.
01O||47||2||And he took five of his brothers to Pharaoh.
01O||47||3||And Pharaoh said to them, What is your business? And they said, Your servants are keepers of sheep, as our fathers were before us.
01O||47||4||And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to make a living in this land, because we have no grass for our flocks in the land of Canaan; so now let your servants make a place for themselves in the land of Goshen.
01O||47||5||And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Let them have the land of Goshen; and if there are any able men among them, put them over my cattle.
01O||47||6||And Jacob and his sons came to Joseph in Egypt, and when word of it came to the ears of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, he said to Joseph, Your father and brothers have come to you; all the land of Egypt is before you; let your father and your brothers have the best of the land for their resting-place.
01O||47||7||Then Joseph made his father Jacob come before Pharaoh, and Jacob gave him his blessing.
01O||47||8||And Pharaoh said to him, How old are you?
01O||47||9||And Jacob said, The years of my wanderings have been a hundred and thirty; small in number and full of sorrow have been the years of my life, and less than the years of the wanderings of my fathers.
01O||47||10||And Jacob gave Pharaoh his blessing, and went out from before him.
01O||47||11||And Joseph made a place for his father and his brothers, and gave them a heritage in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had given orders.
01O||47||12||And Joseph took care of his father and his brothers and all his father's people, giving them food for the needs of their families.
01O||47||13||Now there was no food to be had in all the land, so that all Egypt and Canaan were wasted from need of food.
01O||47||14||And all the money in Egypt and in the land of Canaan which had been given for grain, came into the hands of Joseph: and he put it in Pharaoh's house.
01O||47||15||And when all the money in Egypt and Canaan was gone, the Egyptians came to Joseph, and said, Give us bread; would you have us come to destruction before your eyes? for we have no more money.
01O||47||16||And Joseph said, Give me your cattle; I will give you grain in exchange for your cattle if your money is all gone.
01O||47||17||So they took their cattle to Joseph and he gave them bread in exchange for their horses and flocks and herds and asses, so all that year he gave them food in exchange for their cattle.
01O||47||18||And when that year was ended, they came to him in the second year, and said, We may not keep it from our lord's knowledge that all our money is gone, and all the herds of cattle are my lord's; there is nothing more to give my lord but our bodies and our land;
01O||47||19||Are we to come to destruction before your eyes, we and our land? take us and our land and give us bread; and we and our land will be servants to Pharaoh; and give us seed so that we may have life and the land may not become waste.
01O||47||20||So Joseph got all the land in Egypt for Pharaoh; for every Egyptian gave up his land in exchange for food, because of their great need; so all the land became Pharaoh's.
01O||47||21||And as for the people, he made servants of them, town by town, from one end of Egypt to the other.
01O||47||22||Only he did not take the land of the priests, for the priests had their food given them by Pharaoh, and having what Pharaoh gave them, they had no need to give up their land.
01O||47||23||Then Joseph said to the people, I have made you and your land this day the property of Pharaoh; here is seed for you to put in your fields.
01O||47||24||And when the grain is cut, you are to give a fifth part to Pharaoh, and four parts will be yours for seed and food, and for your families and your little ones.
01O||47||25||And they said to him, Truly you have kept us from death; may we have grace in your eyes, and we will be Pharaoh's servants.
01O||47||26||Then Joseph made a law which is in force to this day, that Pharaoh was to have the fifth part; only the land of the priests did not become his.
01O||47||27||And so Israel was living among the Egyptians in the land of Goshen; and they got property there, and became very great in numbers and in wealth.
01O||47||28||And Jacob was living in the land of Goshen for seventeen years; so the years of his life were a hundred and forty-seven.
01O||47||29||And the time of his death came near, and he sent for his son Joseph and said to him, If now I am dear to you, put your hand under my leg and take an oath that you will not put me to rest in Egypt;
01O||47||30||But when I go to my fathers, you are to take me out of Egypt and put me to rest in their last resting-place. And he said, I will do so.
01O||47||31||And he said, Take an oath to me; and he took an oath to him: and Israel gave worship on the bed's head.
01O||48||1||Now after these things, word came to Joseph that his father was ill: and he took with him his sons Manasseh and Ephraim.
01O||48||2||And when they said to Jacob, Your son Joseph is coming to see you: then Israel, getting all his strength together, had himself lifted up in his bed.
01O||48||3||And Jacob said to Joseph, God, the Ruler of all, came to me in a vision at Luz in the land of Canaan, and gave me his blessing,
01O||48||4||And said to me, Truly, I will make you fertile and give you increase and will make of you a great family of nations: and I will give this land to your seed after you to be their heritage for ever.
01O||48||5||And now your two sons who came to birth in Egypt before I came to you here, are mine; Ephraim and Manasseh will be mine, in the same way as Reuben and Simeon are.
01O||48||6||And any other offspring which you have after them, will be yours, and will be named after their brothers in their heritage.
01O||48||7||And as for me, when I came from Paddan, death overtook Rachel on the way, when we were still some distance from Ephrath; and I put her to rest there on the road to Ephrath, which is Beth-lehem.
01O||48||8||Then Israel, looking at Joseph's sons, said, Who are these?
01O||48||9||And Joseph said to his father, They are my sons, whom God has given me in this land. And he said, Let them come near me, and I will give them a blessing.
01O||48||10||Now because Israel was old, his eyes were no longer clear, and he was not able to see. So he made them come near to him, and he gave them a kiss, folding them in his arms.
01O||48||11||And Israel said to Joseph, I had no hope of seeing your face again, but God in his mercy has let me see you and your children.
01O||48||12||Then Joseph took them from between his knees, and went down on his face to the earth.
01O||48||13||Then taking Ephraim with his right hand, Joseph put him at Israel's left side, and with his left hand he put Manasseh at Israel's right side, placing them near him.
01O||48||14||And Israel, stretching out his right hand, put it on the head of Ephraim, the younger, and his left hand on the head of Manasseh, crossing his hands on purpose, for Manasseh was the older.
01O||48||15||And he gave Joseph a blessing, saying, May the God to whom my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, gave worship, the God who has taken care of me all my life till this day,
01O||48||16||The angel who has been my saviour from all evil, send his blessing on these children: and let my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, be given to them; and let them become a great nation in the earth.
01O||48||17||Now when Joseph saw that his father had put his right hand on the head of Ephraim, it did not seem right to him; and lifting his father's hand he would have put it on the head of Manasseh.
01O||48||18||And Joseph said to his father, Not so, my father, for this is the older; put your right hand on his head.
01O||48||19||But his father would not, saying, I am doing it on purpose, my son; he will certainly become a nation and a great one; but his younger brother will be greater than he, and his seed will become a great family of nations.
01O||48||20||So he gave them his blessing that day, saying, You will be the sign of blessing in Israel, for they will say, May God make you like Ephraim and Manasseh; and he put Ephraim before Manasseh.
01O||48||21||Then Israel said to Joseph, Now my death is near; but God will be with you, guiding you back to the land of your fathers.
01O||48||22||And I have given you more than your brothers, even Shechem as your heritage, which I took from the Amorites with my sword and my bow.
01O||49||1||And Jacob sent for his sons, and said, Come together, all of you, so that I may give you news of your fate in future times.
01O||49||2||Come near, O sons of Jacob, and give ear to the words of Israel your father.
01O||49||3||Reuben, you are my oldest son, the first-fruit of my strength, first in pride and first in power:
01O||49||4||But because you were uncontrolled, the first place will not be yours; for you went up to your father's bed, even his bride-bed, and made it unclean.
01O||49||5||Simeon and Levi are brothers; deceit and force are their secret designs.
01O||49||6||Take no part in their secrets, O my soul; keep far away, O my heart, from their meetings; for in their wrath they put men to death, and for their pleasure even oxen were wounded.
01O||49||7||A curse on their passion for it was bitter; and on their wrath for it was cruel. I will let their heritage in Jacob be broken up, driving them from their places in Israel.
01O||49||8||To you, Judah, will your brothers give praise: your hand will be on the neck of your haters; your father's sons will go down to the earth before you.
01O||49||9||Judah is a young lion; like a lion full of meat you have become great, my son; now he takes his rest like a lion stretched out and like an old lion; by whom will his sleep be broken?
01O||49||10||The rod of authority will not be taken from Judah, and he will not be without a law-giver, till he comes who has the right to it, and the peoples will put themselves under his rule.
01O||49||11||Knotting his ass's cord to the vine, and his young ass to the best vine; washing his robe in wine, and his clothing in the blood of grapes:
01O||49||12||His eyes will be dark with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
01O||49||13||The resting-place of Zebulun will be by the sea, and he will be a harbour for ships; the edge of his land will be by Zidon.
01O||49||14||Issachar is a strong ass stretched out among the flocks:
01O||49||15||And he saw that rest was good and the land was pleasing; so he let them put weights on his back and became a servant.
01O||49||16||Dan will be the judge of his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
01O||49||17||May Dan be a snake in the way, a horned snake by the road, biting the horse's foot so that the horseman has a fall.
01O||49||18||I have been waiting for your salvation, O Lord.
01O||49||19||Gad, an army will come against him, but he will come down on them in their flight.
01O||49||20||Asher's bread is fat; he gives delicate food for kings.
01O||49||21||Naphtali is a roe let loose, giving fair young ones.
01O||49||22||Joseph is a young ox, whose steps are turned to the fountain;
01O||49||23||He was troubled by the archers; they sent out their arrows against him, cruelly wounding him:
01O||49||24||But their bows were broken by a strong one, and the cords of their arms were cut by the Strength of Jacob, by the name of the Stone of Israel:
01O||49||25||Even by the God of your father, who will be your help, and by the Ruler of all, who will make you full with blessings from heaven on high, blessings of the deep stretched out under the earth, blessings of the breasts and of the fertile body:
01O||49||26||Blessings of sons, old and young, to the father: blessings of the oldest mountains and the fruit of the eternal hills: let them come on the head of Joseph, on the crown of him who was separate from his brothers.
01O||49||27||Benjamin is a wolf, searching for meat: in the morning he takes his food, and in the evening he makes division of what he has taken.
01O||49||28||These are the twelve tribes of Israel: and these are the words their father said to them, blessing them; to every one he gave his blessing.
01O||49||29||And he gave orders to them, saying, Put me to rest with my people and with my fathers, in the hollow of the rock in the field of Ephron the Hittite,
01O||49||30||In the rock in the field of Machpelah, near Mamre in the land of Canaan, which Abraham got from Ephron the Hittite, to be his resting-place.
01O||49||31||There Abraham and Sarah his wife were put to rest, and there they put Isaac and Rebekah his wife, and there I put Leah to rest.
01O||49||32||In the rock in the field which was got for a price from the people of Heth.
01O||49||33||And when Jacob had come to the end of these words to his sons, stretching himself on his bed, he gave up his spirit, and went the way of his people.
01O||50||1||And Joseph put his head down on his father's face, weeping and kissing him.
01O||50||2||And Joseph gave orders to his servants who had the necessary knowledge, to make his father's body ready, folding it in linen with spices, and they did so.
01O||50||3||And the forty days needed for making the body ready went by: and there was weeping for him among the Egyptians for seventy days.
01O||50||4||And when the days of weeping for him were past, Joseph said to the servants of Pharaoh, If now you have love for me, say these words to Pharaoh:
01O||50||5||My father made me take an oath, saying, When I am dead, put me to rest in the place I have made ready for myself in the land of Canaan. So now let me go and put my father in his last resting-place, and I will come back again.
01O||50||6||And Pharaoh said, Go up and put your father to rest, as you gave your oath to him.
01O||50||7||So Joseph went up to put his father in his last resting-place; and with him went all the servants of Pharaoh, and the chief men of his house and all the chiefs of the land of Egypt,
01O||50||8||And all the family of Joseph, and his brothers and his father's people: only their little ones and their flocks and herds they did not take with them from the land of Goshen.
01O||50||9||And carriages went up with him and horsemen, a great army.
01O||50||10||And they came to the grain-floor of Atad on the other side of Jordan, and there they gave the last honours to Jacob, with great and bitter sorrow, weeping for their father for seven days.
01O||50||11||And when the people of the land, the people of Canaan, at the grain-floor of Atad, saw their grief, they said, Great is the grief of the Egyptians: so the place was named Abel-mizraim, on the other side of Jordan.
01O||50||12||So his sons did as he had given them orders to do:
01O||50||13||For they took him into the land of Canaan and put him to rest in the hollow rock in the field of Machpelah, which Abraham got with the field, for a resting-place, from Ephron the Hittite at Mamre.
01O||50||14||And when his father had been put to rest, Joseph and his brothers and all who had gone with him, went back to Egypt.
01O||50||15||Now after the death of their father, Joseph's brothers said to themselves, It may be that Joseph's heart will be turned against us, and he will give us punishment for all the evil which we did to him.
01O||50||16||So they sent word to Joseph, saying, Your father, before his death, gave us orders, saying,
01O||50||17||You are to say to Joseph, Let the wrongdoing of your brothers be overlooked, and the evil they did to you: now, if it is your pleasure, let the sin of the servants of your father's God have forgiveness. And at these words, Joseph was overcome with weeping.
01O||50||18||Then his brothers went, and falling at his feet, said, Truly, we are your servants.
01O||50||19||And Joseph said, Have no fear: am I in the place of God?
01O||50||20||As for you, it was in your mind to do me evil, but God has given a happy outcome, the salvation of numbers of people, as you see today.
01O||50||21||So now, have no fear: for I will take care of you and your little ones. So he gave them comfort with kind words.
01O||50||22||Now Joseph and all his father's family went on living in Egypt: and the years of Joseph's life were a hundred and ten.
01O||50||23||And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third generation: and the children of Machir, the son of Manasseh, came to birth on Joseph's knees.
01O||50||24||Then Joseph said to his brothers, The time of my death has come; but God will keep you in mind and take you out of this land into the land which he gave by his oath to Abraham and Isaac and Jacob.
01O||50||25||Then Joseph made the children of Israel take an oath, saying, God will certainly give effect to his word, and you are to take my bones away from here.
01O||50||26||So Joseph came to his death, being a hundred and ten years old: and they made his body ready, and he was put in a chest in Egypt.

Exodus
02O||1||1||Now these are the names of the sons of Israel who came into Egypt; every man and his family came with Jacob.
02O||1||2||Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah;
02O||1||3||Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin;
02O||1||4||Dan and Naphtali, Gad and Asher.
02O||1||5||All the offspring of Jacob were seventy persons: and Joseph had come to Egypt before them.
02O||1||6||Then Joseph came to his end, and all his brothers, and all that generation.
02O||1||7||And the children of Israel were fertile, increasing very greatly in numbers and in power; and the land was full of them.
02O||1||8||Now a new king came to power in Egypt, who had no knowledge of Joseph.
02O||1||9||And he said to his people, See, the people of Israel are greater in number and in power than we are:
02O||1||10||Let us take care for fear that their numbers may become even greater, and if there is a war, they may be joined with those who are against us, and make an attack on us, and go up out of the land.
02O||1||11||So they put overseers of forced work over them, in order to make their strength less by the weight of their work. And they made store-towns for Pharaoh, Pithom and Raamses.
02O||1||12||But the more cruel they were to them, the more their number increased, till all the land was full of them. And the children of Israel were hated by the Egyptians.
02O||1||13||And they gave the children of Israel even harder work to do:
02O||1||14||And made their lives bitter with hard work, making building-material and bricks, and doing all sorts of work in the fields under the hardest conditions.
02O||1||15||And the king of Egypt said to the Hebrew women who gave help at the time of childbirth (the name of the one was Shiphrah and the name of the other Puah),
02O||1||16||When you are looking after the Hebrew women in childbirth, if it is a son you are to put him to death; but if it is a daughter, she may go on living.
02O||1||17||But the women had the fear of God, and did not do as the king of Egypt said, but let the male children go on living.
02O||1||18||And the king of Egypt sent for the women, and said to them, Why have you done this, and let the male children go on living?
02O||1||19||And they said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women, for they are strong, and the birth takes place before we come to them.
02O||1||20||And the blessing of God was on these women: and the people were increased in number and became very strong.
02O||1||21||And because the women who took care of the Hebrew mothers had the fear of God, he gave them families.
02O||1||22||And Pharaoh gave orders to all his people, saying, Every son who comes to birth is to be put into the river, but every daughter may go on living.
02O||2||1||Now a man of the house of Levi took as his wife a daughter of Levi.
02O||2||2||And she became with child and gave birth to a Son; and when she saw that he was a beautiful child, she kept him secretly for three months.
02O||2||3||And when she was no longer able to keep him secret, she made him a basket out of the stems of water-plants, pasting sticky earth over it to keep the water out; and placing the baby in it she put it among the plants by the edge of the Nile.
02O||2||4||And his sister took her place at a distance to see what would become of him.
02O||2||5||Now Pharaoh's daughter came down to the Nile to take a bath, while her women were walking by the riverside; and she saw the basket among the river-plants, and sent her servant-girl to get it.
02O||2||6||And opening it, she saw the child, and he was crying. And she had pity on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews' children.
02O||2||7||Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, May I go and get you one of the Hebrew women to give him the breast?
02O||2||8||And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Go. And the girl went and got the child's mother.
02O||2||9||And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take the child away and give it milk for me, and I will give you payment. And the woman took the child and gave it milk at her breast.
02O||2||10||And when the child was older, she took him to Pharaoh's daughter and he became her son, and she gave him the name Moses, Because, she said, I took him out of the water.
02O||2||11||Now when Moses had become a man, one day he went out to his people and saw how hard their work was; and he saw an Egyptian giving blows to a Hebrew, one of his people.
02O||2||12||And turning this way and that, and seeing no one, he put the Egyptian to death, covering his body with sand.
02O||2||13||And he went out the day after and saw two of the Hebrews fighting: and he said to him who was in the wrong, Why are you fighting your brother?
02O||2||14||And he said, Who made you a ruler and a judge over us? are you going to put me to death as you did the Egyptian? And Moses was in fear, and said, It is clear that the thing has come to light.
02O||2||15||Now when Pharaoh had news of this, he would have put Moses to death. But Moses went in flight from Pharaoh into the land of Midian: and he took his seat by a water-spring.
02O||2||16||Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came to get water for their father's flock.
02O||2||17||And the keepers of the sheep came up and were driving them away; but Moses got up and came to their help, watering their flock for them.
02O||2||18||And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that you have come back so quickly today?
02O||2||19||And they said, An Egyptian came to our help against the keepers of sheep and got water for us and gave it to the flock.
02O||2||20||And he said to his daughters, Where is he? why have you let the man go? make him come in and give him a meal.
02O||2||21||And Moses was happy to go on living with the man; and he gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses.
02O||2||22||And she gave birth to a son, to whom he gave the name Gershom: for he said, I have been living in a strange land.
02O||2||23||Now after a long time the king of Egypt came to his end: and the children of Israel were crying in their grief under the weight of their work, and their cry for help came to the ears of God.
02O||2||24||And at the sound of their weeping the agreement which God had made with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob came to his mind.
02O||2||25||And God's eyes were turned to the children of Israel and he gave them the knowledge of himself.
02O||3||1||Now Moses was looking after the flock of Jethro, his father-in-law, the priest of Midian: and he took the flock to the back of the waste land and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
02O||3||2||And the angel of the Lord was seen by him in a flame of fire coming out of a thorn-tree: and he saw that the tree was on fire, but it was not burned up.
02O||3||3||And Moses said, I will go and see this strange thing, why the tree is not burned up,
02O||3||4||And when the Lord saw him turning to one side to see, God said his name out of the tree, crying, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
02O||3||5||And he said, Do not come near: take off your shoes from your feet, for the place where you are is holy.
02O||3||6||And he said, I am the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses kept his face covered for fear of looking on God.
02O||3||7||And God said, Truly, I have seen the grief of my people in Egypt, and their cry because of their cruel masters has come to my ears; for I have knowledge of their sorrows;
02O||3||8||And I have come down to take them out of the hands of the Egyptians, guiding them out of that land into a good land and wide, into a land flowing with milk and honey; into the place of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.
02O||3||9||For now, truly, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me, and I have seen the cruel behaviour of the Egyptians to them.
02O||3||10||Come, then, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may take my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.
02O||3||11||And Moses said to God, Who am I to go to Pharaoh and take the children of Israel out of Egypt?
02O||3||12||And he said, Truly I will be with you; and this will be the sign to you that I have sent you: when you have taken the children of Israel out of Egypt, you will give worship to God on this mountain.
02O||3||13||And Moses said to God, When I come to the children of Israel and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you: and they say to me, What is his name? what am I to say to them?
02O||3||14||And God said to him, I AM WHAT I AM: and he said, Say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.
02O||3||15||And God went on to say to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has sent me to you: this is my name for ever, and this is my sign to all generations.
02O||3||16||Go and get together the chiefs of the children of Israel, and say to them, The Lord, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has been seen by me, and has said, Truly I have taken up your cause, because of what is done to you in Egypt;
02O||3||17||And I have said, I will take you up out of the sorrows of Egypt into the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, into a land flowing with milk and honey.
02O||3||18||And they will give ear to your voice: and you, with the chiefs of Israel, will go to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and say to him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has come to us: let us then go three days' journey into the waste land to make an offering to the Lord our God.
02O||3||19||And I am certain that the king of Egypt will not let you go without being forced.
02O||3||20||But I will put out my hand and overcome Egypt with all the wonders which I will do among them: and after that he will let you go.
02O||3||21||And I will give this people grace in the eyes of the Egyptians, so that when you go out you will go out with your hands full.
02O||3||22||For every woman will get from her neighbour and from the woman living in her house, ornaments of silver and gold, and clothing; and you will put them on your sons and your daughters; you will take the best of their goods from the Egyptians.
02O||4||1||And Moses, answering, said, It is certain that they will not have faith in me or give ear to my voice; for they will say, You have not seen the Lord.
02O||4||2||And the Lord said to him, What is that in your hand? And he said, A rod.
02O||4||3||And he said, Put it down on the earth. And he put it down on the earth and it became a snake; and Moses went running from it.
02O||4||4||And the Lord said to Moses, Put out your hand and take it by the tail: (and he put out his hand and took a grip of it and it became a rod in his hand:)
02O||4||5||So that they may be certain that the Lord, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has been seen by you.
02O||4||6||Then the Lord said to him again, Put your hand inside your clothing. And he put his hand inside his robe: and when he took it out it was like the hand of a leper, as white as snow.
02O||4||7||And he said, Put your hand inside your robe again. (And he put his hand into his robe again, and when he took it out he saw that it had become like his other flesh.)
02O||4||8||And if they do not have faith in you or give ear to the voice of the first sign, they will have faith in the second sign.
02O||4||9||And if they have no faith even in these two signs and will not give ear to your voice, then you are to take the water of the Nile and put it on the dry land: and the water you take out of the river will become blood on the dry land.
02O||4||10||And Moses said to the Lord, O Lord, I am not a man of words; I have never been so, and am not now, even after what you have said to your servant: for talking is hard for me, and I am slow of tongue.
02O||4||11||And the Lord said to him, Who has made man's mouth? who takes away a man's voice or hearing, or makes him seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord?
02O||4||12||So go now, and I will be with your mouth, teaching you what to say.
02O||4||13||And he said, O Lord, send, if you will, by the hand of anyone whom it seems good to you to send.
02O||4||14||And the Lord was angry with Moses, and said, Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? To my knowledge he is good at talking. And now he is coming out to you: and when he sees you he will be glad in his heart.
02O||4||15||Let him give ear to your voice, and you will put my words in his mouth; and I will be with your mouth and with his, teaching you what you have to do.
02O||4||16||And he will do the talking for you to the people: he will be to you as a mouth and you will be to him as God.
02O||4||17||And take in your hand this rod with which you will do the signs.
02O||4||18||And Moses went back to Jethro, his father-in-law, and said to him, Let me go back now to my relations in Egypt and see if they are still living. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace.
02O||4||19||And the Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go back to Egypt, for all the men are dead who were attempting to take your life.
02O||4||20||And Moses took his wife and his sons and put them on an ass and went back to the land of Egypt: and he took the rod of God in his hand.
02O||4||21||And the Lord said to Moses, When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the wonders which I have given you power to do: but I will make his heart hard and he will not let the people go.
02O||4||22||And you are to say to Pharaoh, The Lord says, Israel is the first of my sons:
02O||4||23||And I said to you, Let my son go, so that he may give me worship; and you did not let him go: so now I will put the first of your sons to death.
02O||4||24||Now on the journey, at the night's resting-place, the Lord came in his way and would have put him to death.
02O||4||25||Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cutting off the skin of her son's private parts, and touching his feet with it, she said, Truly you are a husband of blood to me.
02O||4||26||So he let him go. Then she said, You are a husband of blood because of the circumcision.
02O||4||27||And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the waste land and you will see Moses. So he went and came across Moses at the mountain of God, and gave him a kiss.
02O||4||28||And Moses gave Aaron an account of all the words of the Lord which he had sent him to say, and of all the signs which he had given him orders to do.
02O||4||29||Then Moses and Aaron went and got together all the chiefs of the children of Israel:
02O||4||30||And Aaron said to them all the words the Lord had said to Moses, and did the signs before all the people.
02O||4||31||And the people had faith in them; and hearing that the Lord had taken up the cause of the children of Israel and had seen their troubles, with bent heads they gave him worship.
02O||5||1||And after that, Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and said, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, Let my people go so that they may keep a feast to me in the waste land.
02O||5||2||And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, to whose voice I am to give ear and let Israel go? I have no knowledge of the Lord and I will not let Israel go.
02O||5||3||And they said, The God of the Hebrews has come to us: let us then go three days' journey into the waste land to make an offering to the Lord our God, so that he may not send death on us by disease or the sword.
02O||5||4||And the king of Egypt said to them, Why do you, Moses and Aaron, take the people away from their work? get back to your work.
02O||5||5||And Pharaoh said, Truly, the people of the land are increasing in number, and you are keeping them back from their work.
02O||5||6||The same day Pharaoh gave orders to the overseers and those who were responsible for the work, saying,
02O||5||7||Give these men no more dry stems for their brick-making as you have been doing; let them go and get the material for themselves.
02O||5||8||But see that they make the same number of bricks as before, and no less: for they have no love for work; and so they are crying out and saying, Let us go and make an offering to our God.
02O||5||9||Give the men harder work, and see that they do it; let them not give attention to false words.
02O||5||10||And the overseers of the people and their responsible men went out and said to the people, Pharaoh says, I will give you no more dry stems.
02O||5||11||Go yourselves and get dry stems wherever you are able; for your work is not to be any less.
02O||5||12||So the people were sent in all directions through the land of Egypt to get dry grass for stems.
02O||5||13||And the overseers went on driving them and saying, Do your full day's work as before when there were dry stems for you.
02O||5||14||And the responsible men of the children of Israel, whom Pharaoh's overseers had put over them, were given blows, and they said to them, Why have you not done your regular work, in making bricks as before?
02O||5||15||Then the responsible men of the children of Israel came to Pharaoh, protesting and saying, Why are you acting in this way to your servants?
02O||5||16||They give us no dry stems and they say to us, Make bricks: and they give your servants blows; but it is your people who are in the wrong.
02O||5||17||But he said, You have no love for work: that is why you say, Let us go and make an offering to the Lord.
02O||5||18||Go now, get back to your work; no dry stems will be given to you, but you are to make the full number of bricks.
02O||5||19||Then the responsible men of the children of Israel saw that they were purposing evil when they said, The number of bricks which you have to make every day will be no less than before.
02O||5||20||And they came face to face with Moses and Aaron, who were in their way when they came out from Pharaoh:
02O||5||21||And they said to them, May the Lord take note of you and be your judge; for you have given Pharaoh and his servants a bad opinion of us, putting a sword in their hands for our destruction.
02O||5||22||And Moses went back to the Lord and said, Lord, why have you done evil to this people? why have you sent me?
02O||5||23||For from the time when I came to Pharaoh to put your words before him, he has done evil to this people, and you have given them no help.
02O||6||1||And the Lord said to Moses, Now you will see what I am about to do to Pharaoh; for by a strong hand he will be forced to let them go, driving them out of his land because of my outstretched arm.
02O||6||2||And God said to Moses, I am Yahweh:
02O||6||3||I let myself be seen by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God, the Ruler of all; but they had no knowledge of my name Yahweh.
02O||6||4||And I made an agreement with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their wanderings.
02O||6||5||And truly my ears are open to the cry of the children of Israel whom the Egyptians keep under their yoke; and I have kept in mind my agreement.
02O||6||6||Say then to the children of Israel, I am Yahweh, and I will take you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians, and make you safe from their power, and will make you free by the strength of my arm after great punishments.
02O||6||7||And I will take you to be my people and I will be your God; and you will be certain that I am the Lord your God, who takes you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians.
02O||6||8||And I will be your guide into the land which I made an oath to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it to you for your heritage: I am Yahweh.
02O||6||9||And Moses said these words to the children of Israel, but they gave no attention to him, because of the grief of their spirit and the cruel weight of their work.
02O||6||10||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||6||11||Go in and say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, that he is to let the children of Israel go out of his land.
02O||6||12||And Moses, answering the Lord, said, See, the children of Israel will not give ear to me; how then will Pharaoh give ear to me, whose lips are unclean?
02O||6||13||And the word of the Lord came to Moses and Aaron, with orders for the children of Israel and for Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
02O||6||14||These are the heads of their fathers' families: the sons of Reuben the oldest son of Israel: Hanoch and Pallu, Hezron and Carmi: these are the families of Reuben.
02O||6||15||And the sons of Simeon: Jemuel and Jamin and Ohad and Jachin and Zohar and Shaul, the son of a woman of Canaan: these are the families of Simeon.
02O||6||16||And these are the names of the sons of Levi in the order of their generations: Gershon and Kohath and Merari: and the years of Levi's life were a hundred and thirty-seven.
02O||6||17||The sons of Gershon: Libni and Shimei, in the order of their families.
02O||6||18||And the sons of Kohath: Amram and Izhar and Hebron and Uzziel: and the years of Kohath's life were a hundred and thirty-three.
02O||6||19||And the sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi: these are the families of the Levites, in the order of their generations.
02O||6||20||And Amram took Jochebed, his father's sister, as wife; and she gave birth to Aaron and Moses: and the years of Amram's life were a hundred and thirty-seven.
02O||6||21||And the sons of Izhar: Korah and Nepheg and Zichri.
02O||6||22||And the sons of Uzziel: Mishael and Elzaphan and Sithri.
02O||6||23||And Aaron took as his wife Elisheba, the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Nahshon; and she gave birth to Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
02O||6||24||And the sons of Korah: Assir and Elkanah and Abiasaph: these are the families of the Korahites.
02O||6||25||And Eleazar, Aaron's son, took as his wife one of the daughters of Putiel; and she gave birth to Phinehas. These are the heads of the families of the Levites, in the order of their families.
02O||6||26||These are the same Aaron and Moses to whom the Lord said, Take the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt in their armies.
02O||6||27||These are the men who gave orders to Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go out of Egypt: these are the same Moses and Aaron.
02O||6||28||And on the day when the word of the Lord came to Moses in the land of Egypt,
02O||6||29||The Lord said to Moses, I am the Lord: say to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, everything I am saying to you.
02O||6||30||And Moses said to the Lord, My lips are unclean; how is it possible that Pharaoh will give me a hearing?
02O||7||1||And the Lord said to Moses, See I have made you a god to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother will be your prophet.
02O||7||2||Say whatever I give you orders to say: and Aaron your brother will give word to Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go out of his land.
02O||7||3||And I will make Pharaoh's heart hard, and my signs and wonders will be increased in the land of Egypt.
02O||7||4||But Pharaoh will not give ear to you, and I will put my hand on Egypt, and take my armies, my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt, after great punishments.
02O||7||5||And the Egyptians will see that I am the Lord, when my hand is stretched out over Egypt, and I take the children of Israel out from among them.
02O||7||6||And Moses and Aaron did so: as the Lord gave them orders, so they did.
02O||7||7||And Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron eighty-three years old, when they gave the Lord's word to Pharaoh.
02O||7||8||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
02O||7||9||If Pharaoh says to you, Let me see a wonder: then say to Aaron, Take your rod and put it down on the earth before Pharaoh so that it may become a snake.
02O||7||10||Then Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh and they did as the Lord had said: and Aaron put his rod down on the earth before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a snake.
02O||7||11||Then Pharaoh sent for the wise men and the wonder-workers, and they, the wonder-workers of Egypt, did the same with their secret arts.
02O||7||12||For every one of them put down his rod on the earth, and they became snakes: but Aaron's rod made a meal of their rods.
02O||7||13||But Pharaoh's heart was made hard, and he did not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
02O||7||14||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Pharaoh's heart is unchanged; he will not let the people go.
02O||7||15||Go to Pharaoh in the morning; when he goes out to the water, you will be waiting for him by the edge of the Nile, with the rod which was turned into a snake in your hand;
02O||7||16||And say to him, The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to you, saying, Let my people go so that they may give me worship in the waste land; but up to now you have not given ear to his words.
02O||7||17||So the Lord says, By this you may be certain that I am the Lord; see, by the touch of this rod in my hand the waters of the Nile will be turned to blood;
02O||7||18||And the fish in the Nile will come to destruction, and the river will send up a bad smell, and the Egyptians will not be able, for disgust, to make use of the water of the Nile for drinking.
02O||7||19||And the Lord said, Say to Aaron, Let the rod in your hand be stretched out over the waters of Egypt, and over the rivers and the streams and the pools, and over every stretch of water, so that they may be turned to blood; and there will be blood through all the land of Egypt, in vessels of wood and in vessels of stone.
02O||7||20||And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord had said; and when his rod had been lifted up and stretched out over the waters of the Nile before the eyes of Pharaoh and his servants, all the water in the Nile was turned to blood;
02O||7||21||And the fish in the Nile came to destruction, and a bad smell went up from the river, and the Egyptians were not able to make use of the water of the Nile for drinking; and there was blood through all the land of Egypt.
02O||7||22||And the wonder-workers of Egypt did the same with their secret arts: but Pharaoh's heart was made hard, and he would not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
02O||7||23||Then Pharaoh went into his house, and did not take even this to heart.
02O||7||24||And all the Egyptians made holes round about the Nile to get drinking-water, for they were not able to make use of the Nile water.
02O||7||25||And seven days went past, after the Lord had put his hand on the Nile.
02O||8||1||And this is what the Lord said to Moses: Go to Pharaoh and say to him, The Lord says, Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
02O||8||2||And if you will not let them go, see, I will send frogs into every part of your land:
02O||8||3||The Nile will be full of frogs, and they will come up into your house and into your bedrooms and on your bed, and into the houses of your servants and your people, and into your ovens and into your bread-basins.
02O||8||4||The frogs will come up over you and your people and all your servants.
02O||8||5||And the Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Let the rod in your hand be stretched out over the streams and the waterways and the pools, causing frogs to come up on the land of Egypt.
02O||8||6||And when Aaron put out his hand over the waters of Egypt, the frogs came up and all the land of Egypt was covered with them.
02O||8||7||And the wonder-workers did the same with their secret arts, making frogs come up over the land of Egypt.
02O||8||8||Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron and said, Make prayer to the Lord that he will take away these frogs from me and my people; and I will let the people go and make their offering to the Lord.
02O||8||9||And Moses said, I will let you have the honour of saying when I am to make prayer for you and your servants and your people, that the frogs may be sent away from you and your houses, and be only in the Nile.
02O||8||10||And he said, By tomorrow. And he said, Let it be as you say: so that you may see that there is no other like the Lord our God.
02O||8||11||And the frogs will be gone from you and from your houses and from your servants and from your people and will be only in the Nile.
02O||8||12||Then Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh; and Moses made prayer to the Lord about the frogs which he had sent on Pharaoh.
02O||8||13||And the Lord did as Moses said; and there was an end of all the frogs in the houses and in the open spaces and in the fields.
02O||8||14||And they put them together in masses, and a bad smell went up from the land.
02O||8||15||But when Pharaoh saw that there was peace for a time, he made his heart hard and did not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
02O||8||16||And the Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Let your rod be stretched out over the dust of the earth so that it may become insects through all the land of Egypt.
02O||8||17||And they did so; and Aaron, stretching out the rod in his hand, gave a touch to the dust of the earth, and insects came on man and on beast; all the dust of the earth was changed into insects through all the land of Egypt.
02O||8||18||And the wonder-workers with their secret arts, attempting to make insects, were unable to do so: and there were insects on man and on beast.
02O||8||19||Then the wonder-workers said to Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: but Pharaoh's heart was hard, and he did not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
02O||8||20||And the Lord said to Moses, Get up early in the morning and take your place before Pharaoh when he comes out to the water; and say to him, This is what the Lord says: Let my people go to give me worship.
02O||8||21||For if you do not let my people go, see, I will send clouds of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into their houses; and the houses of the Egyptians and the land where they are will be full of flies.
02O||8||22||And at that time I will make a division between your land and the land of Goshen where my people are, and no flies will be there; so that you may see that I am the Lord over all the earth.
02O||8||23||And I will put a division between my people and your people; tomorrow this sign will be seen.
02O||8||24||And the Lord did so; and great clouds of flies came into the house of Pharaoh and into his servants' houses, and all the land of Egypt was made waste because of the flies.
02O||8||25||And Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron and said, Go and make your offering to your God here in the land.
02O||8||26||And Moses said, It is not right to do so; for we make our offerings of that to which the Egyptians give worship; and if we do so before their eyes, certainly we will be stoned.
02O||8||27||But we will go three days' journey into the waste land and make an offering to the Lord our God as he may give us orders.
02O||8||28||Then Pharaoh said, I will let you go to make an offering to the Lord your God in the waste land; but do not go very far away, and make prayer for me.
02O||8||29||And Moses said, When I go out from you I will make prayer to the Lord that the cloud of flies may go away from Pharaoh and from his people and from his servants tomorrow: only let Pharaoh no longer by deceit keep back the people from making their offering to the Lord.
02O||8||30||Then Moses went out from Pharaoh and made prayer to the Lord.
02O||8||31||And the Lord did as Moses said, and took away the cloud of flies from Pharaoh and from his servants and from his people; not one was to be seen.
02O||8||32||But again Pharaoh made his heart hard and did not let the people go.
02O||9||1||Then the Lord said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh and say to him, This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
02O||9||2||For if you will not let them go, but still keep them in your power,
02O||9||3||Then the hand of the Lord will put on your cattle in the field, on the horses and the asses and the camels, on the herds and the flocks, a very evil disease.
02O||9||4||And the Lord will make a division between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt; there will be no loss of any of the cattle of Israel.
02O||9||5||And the time was fixed by the Lord, and he said, Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.
02O||9||6||And on the day after, the Lord did as he had said, causing the death of all the cattle of Egypt, but there was no loss of any of the cattle of Israel.
02O||9||7||And Pharaoh sent and got word that there was no loss of any of the cattle of Israel. But the heart of Pharaoh was hard and he did not let the people go.
02O||9||8||And the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron, Take in your hand a little dust from the fire and let Moses send it in a shower up to heaven before the eyes of Pharaoh.
02O||9||9||And it will become small dust over all the land of Egypt, and will be a skin-disease bursting out in wounds on man and beast through all the land of Egypt.
02O||9||10||So they took some dust from the fire, and placing themselves before Pharaoh, Moses sent it out in a shower up to heaven; and it became a skin-disease bursting out on man and on beast.
02O||9||11||And the wonder-workers were not able to take their places before Moses, because of the disease; for the disease was on the wonder-workers and on all the Egyptians.
02O||9||12||And the Lord made Pharaoh's heart hard, and he would not give ear to them, as the Lord had said.
02O||9||13||And the Lord said to Moses, Get up early in the morning and take your place before Pharaoh, and say to him, This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go so that they may give me worship.
02O||9||14||For this time I will send all my punishments on yourself and on your servants and on your people; so that you may see that there is no other like me in all the earth.
02O||9||15||For if I had put the full weight of my hand on you and your people, you would have been cut off from the earth:
02O||9||16||But, for this very reason, I have kept you from destruction, to make clear to you my power, and so that my name may be honoured through all the earth.
02O||9||17||Are you still uplifted in pride against my people so that you will not let them go?
02O||9||18||Truly, tomorrow about this time I will send down an ice-storm, such as never was in Egypt from its earliest days till now.
02O||9||19||Then send quickly and get in your cattle and all you have from the fields; for if any man or beast in the field has not been put under cover, the ice-storm will come down on them with destruction.
02O||9||20||Then everyone among the servants of Pharaoh who had the fear of the Lord, made his servants and his cattle come quickly into the house:
02O||9||21||And he who gave no attention to the word of the Lord, kept his servants and his cattle in the field.
02O||9||22||And the Lord said to Moses, Now let your hand be stretched out to heaven so that there may be an ice-storm on all the land of Egypt, on man and on beast and on every plant of the field through all the land of Egypt.
02O||9||23||And Moses put out his rod to heaven: and the Lord sent thunder, and an ice-storm, and fire running down on the earth; the Lord sent an ice-storm on the land of Egypt.
02O||9||24||So there was an ice-storm with fire running through it, coming down with great force, such as never was in all the land of Egypt from the time when it became a nation.
02O||9||25||And through all the land of Egypt the ice-storm came down on everything which was in the fields, on man and on beast; and every green plant was crushed and every tree of the field broken.
02O||9||26||Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no ice-storm.
02O||9||27||Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, I have done evil this time: the Lord is upright, and I and my people are sinners.
02O||9||28||Make prayer to the Lord; for there has been enough of these thunderings of God and this ice-storm; and I will let you go and will keep you no longer.
02O||9||29||And Moses said, When I am gone outside the town, my hands will be stretched out to the Lord; the thunders and the ice-storm will come to an end, so that you may see that the earth is the Lord's.
02O||9||30||But as for you and your servants, I am certain that even now the fear of the Lord God will not be in your hearts.
02O||9||31||And the flax and the barley were damaged, for the barley was almost ready to be cut and the flax was in flower.
02O||9||32||But the rest of the grain-plants were undamaged, for they had not come up.
02O||9||33||So Moses went out of the town, and stretching out his hands made prayer to God: and the thunders and the ice-storm came to an end; and the fall of rain was stopped.
02O||9||34||But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the ice-storm and the thunders were ended, he went on sinning, and made his heart hard, he and his servants.
02O||9||35||And the heart of Pharaoh was hard, and he did not let the people go, as the Lord had said by the mouth of Moses.
02O||10||1||And the Lord said to Moses, Go in to Pharaoh: for I have made his heart and the hearts of his servants hard, so that I may let my signs be seen among them:
02O||10||2||And so that you may be able to give to your son and to your son's son the story of my wonders in Egypt, and the signs which I have done among them; so that you may see that I am the Lord.
02O||10||3||Then Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and said to him, This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: How long will you be lifted up in your pride before me? let my people go so that they may give me worship.
02O||10||4||For if you will not let my people go, tomorrow I will send locusts into your land:
02O||10||5||And the face of the earth will be covered with them, so that you will not be able to see the earth: and they will be the destruction of everything which up to now has not been damaged, everything which was not crushed by the ice-storm, and every tree still living in your fields.
02O||10||6||And your houses will be full of them, and the houses of your servants and of all the Egyptians; it will be worse than anything your fathers have seen or their fathers, from the day when they were living on the earth till this day. And so he went out from Pharaoh.
02O||10||7||And Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long is this man to be the cause of evil to us? let the men go so that they may give worship to the Lord their God: are you not awake to Egypt's danger?
02O||10||8||Then Moses and Aaron came in again before Pharaoh: and he said to them, Go and give worship to the Lord your God: but which of you are going?
02O||10||9||And Moses said, We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and our daughters, with our flocks and our herds; for we are to keep a feast to the Lord.
02O||10||10||And he said to them, May the Lord be with you, if I will let you and your little ones go! take care, for your purpose clearly is evil.
02O||10||11||Not so; but let your males go and give worship to the Lord, as your desire is. This he said, driving them out from before him.
02O||10||12||And the Lord said to Moses, Let your hand be stretched out over the land of Egypt so that the locusts may come up on the land for the destruction of every green plant in the land, even everything untouched by the ice-storm.
02O||10||13||And Moses' rod was stretched out over the land of Egypt, and the Lord sent an east wind over the land all that day and all the night; and in the morning the locusts came up with the east wind.
02O||10||14||And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, resting on every part of the land, in very great numbers; such an army of locusts had never been seen before, and never will be again.
02O||10||15||For all the face of the earth was covered with them, so that the land was black; and every green plant and all the fruit of the trees which was untouched by the ice-storm they took for food: not one green thing, no plant or tree, was to be seen in all the land of Egypt.
02O||10||16||Then Pharaoh quickly sent for Moses and Aaron, and said, I have done evil against the Lord your God and against you.
02O||10||17||Let me now have forgiveness for my sin this time only, and make prayer to the Lord your God that he will take away from me this death only.
02O||10||18||So he went out from Pharaoh and made prayer to the Lord.
02O||10||19||And the Lord sent a very strong west wind, which took up the locusts, driving them into the Red Sea; not one locust was to be seen in any part of Egypt.
02O||10||20||But the Lord made Pharaoh's heart hard, and he did not let the children of Israel go.
02O||10||21||And the Lord said to Moses, Let your hand be stretched out to heaven, and all the land of Egypt will be dark, so that men will be feeling their way about in the dark.
02O||10||22||And when Moses' hand was stretched out, dark night came over all the land of Egypt for three days;
02O||10||23||They were not able to see one another, and no one got up from his place for three days: but where the children of Israel were living it was light.
02O||10||24||Then Pharaoh sent for Moses, and said, Go and give worship to the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be kept here: your little ones may go with you.
02O||10||25||But Moses said, You will have to let us take burned offerings to put before the Lord our God.
02O||10||26||So our cattle will have to go with us, not one may be kept back; for they are needed for the worship of the Lord our God; we have no knowledge what offering we have to give till we come to the place.
02O||10||27||But the Lord made Pharaoh's heart hard, and he would not let them go.
02O||10||28||And Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me, take care that you come not again before me; for the day when you see my face again will be your last.
02O||10||29||And Moses said, You say truly; I will not see your face again.
02O||11||1||And the Lord said to Moses, I will send one more punishment on Pharaoh and on Egypt; after that he will let you go; and when he does let you go, he will not keep one of you back, but will send you out by force.
02O||11||2||So go now and give orders to the people that every man and every woman is to get from his or her neighbour ornaments of silver and of gold.
02O||11||3||And the Lord gave the people grace in the eyes of the Egyptians. For the man Moses was highly honoured in the land of Egypt, by Pharaoh's servants and the people.
02O||11||4||And Moses said, This is what the Lord says: About the middle of the night I will go out through Egypt:
02O||11||5||And death will come to every mother's first male child in all the land of Egypt, from the child of Pharaoh on his seat of power, to the child of the servant-girl crushing the grain; and the first births of all the cattle.
02O||11||6||And there will be a great cry through all the land of Egypt, such as never has been or will be again.
02O||11||7||But against the children of Israel, man or beast, not so much as the tongue of a dog will be moved: so that you may see how the Lord makes a division between Israel and the Egyptians.
02O||11||8||And all these your servants will come to me, going down on their faces before me and saying, Go out, and all your people with you: and after that I will go out. And he went away from Pharaoh burning with wrath.
02O||11||9||And the Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not give ear to you, so that my wonders may be increased in the land of Egypt.
02O||11||10||All these wonders Moses and Aaron did before Pharaoh: but the Lord made Pharaoh's heart hard, and he did not let the children of Israel go out of his land.
02O||12||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
02O||12||2||Let this month be to you the first of months, the first month of the year.
02O||12||3||Say to all the children of Israel when they are come together, In the tenth day of this month every man is to take a lamb, by the number of their fathers' families, a lamb for every family:
02O||12||4||And if the lamb is more than enough for the family, let that family and its nearest neighbour have a lamb between them, taking into account the number of persons and how much food is needed for every man.
02O||12||5||Let your lamb be without a mark, a male in its first year: you may take it from among the sheep or the goats:
02O||12||6||Keep it till the fourteenth day of the same month, when everyone who is of the children of Israel is to put it to death between sundown and dark.
02O||12||7||Then take some of the blood and put it on the two sides of the door and over the door of the house where the meal is to be taken.
02O||12||8||And let your food that night be the flesh of the lamb, cooked with fire in the oven, together with unleavened bread and bitter-tasting plants.
02O||12||9||Do not take it uncooked or cooked with boiling water, but let it be cooked in the oven; its head with its legs and its inside parts.
02O||12||10||Do not keep any of it till the morning; anything which is not used is to be burned with fire.
02O||12||11||And take your meal dressed as if for a journey, with your shoes on your feet and your sticks in your hands: take it quickly: it is the Lord's Passover.
02O||12||12||For on that night I will go through the land of Egypt, sending death on every first male child, of man and of beast, and judging all the gods of Egypt: I am the Lord.
02O||12||13||And the blood will be a sign on the houses where you are: when I see the blood I will go over you, and no evil will come on you for your destruction, when my hand is on the land of Egypt.
02O||12||14||And this day is to be kept in your memories: you are to keep it as a feast to the Lord through all your generations, as an order for ever.
02O||12||15||For seven days let your food be unleavened bread; from the first day no leaven is to be seen in your houses: whoever takes bread with leaven in it, from the first till the seventh day, will be cut off from Israel.
02O||12||16||And on the first day there is to be a holy meeting and on the seventh day a holy meeting; no sort of work may be done on those days but only to make ready what is necessary for everyone's food.
02O||12||17||So keep the feast of unleavened bread; for on this very day I have taken your armies out of the land of Egypt: this day, then, is to be kept through all your generations by an order for ever.
02O||12||18||In the first month, from the evening of the fourteenth day, let your food be unleavened bread till the evening of the twenty-first day of the month.
02O||12||19||For seven days no leaven is to be seen in your houses: for whoever takes bread which is leavened will be cut off from the people of Israel, if he is from another country or if he is an Israelite by birth.
02O||12||20||Take nothing which has leaven in it; wherever you are living let your food be unleavened cakes.
02O||12||21||Then Moses sent for the chiefs of Israel, and said to them, See that lambs are marked out for yourselves and your families, and let the Passover lamb be put to death.
02O||12||22||And take some hyssop and put it in the blood in the basin, touching the two sides and the top of the doorway with the blood from the basin; and let not one of you go out of his house till the morning.
02O||12||23||For the Lord will go through the land, sending death on the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the two sides and the top of the door, the Lord will go over your door and will not let death come in for your destruction.
02O||12||24||And you are to keep this as an order to you and to your sons for ever.
02O||12||25||And when you come into the land which the Lord will make yours, as he gave his word, you are to keep this act of worship.
02O||12||26||And when your children say to you, What is the reason of this act of worship?
02O||12||27||Then you will say, This is the offering of the Lord's Passover; for he went over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he sent death on the Egyptians, and kept our families safe. And the people gave worship with bent heads.
02O||12||28||And the children of Israel went and did so; as the Lord had given orders to Moses and Aaron, so they did.
02O||12||29||And in the middle of the night the Lord sent death on every first male child in the land of Egypt, from the child of Pharaoh on his seat of power to the child of the prisoner in the prison; and the first births of all the cattle.
02O||12||30||Then Pharaoh got up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians; and a great cry went up from Egypt; for there was not a house where someone was not dead.
02O||12||31||And he sent for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Get up and go out from among my people, you and the children of Israel; go and give worship to the Lord as you have said.
02O||12||32||And take your flocks and your herds as you have said, and be gone; and give me your blessing.
02O||12||33||And the Egyptians were forcing the people on, to get them out of the land quickly; for they said, We are all dead men.
02O||12||34||And the people took their bread-paste before it was leavened, putting their basins in their clothing on their backs.
02O||12||35||And the children of Israel had done as Moses had said; and they got from the Egyptians ornaments of silver and of gold, and clothing:
02O||12||36||And the Lord had given the people grace in the eyes of the Egyptians so that they gave them whatever was requested. So they took away all their goods from the Egyptians.
02O||12||37||And the children of Israel made the journey from Rameses to Succoth; there were about six hundred thousand men on foot, as well as children.
02O||12||38||And a mixed band of people went with them; and flocks and herds in great numbers.
02O||12||39||And they made unleavened cakes from the paste which they had taken out of Egypt; it was not leavened, for they had been sent out of Egypt so quickly, that they had no time to make any food ready.
02O||12||40||Now the children of Israel had been living in Egypt for four hundred and thirty years.
02O||12||41||And at the end of four hundred and thirty years, to the very day, all the armies of the Lord went out of the land of Egypt.
02O||12||42||It is a watch-night before the Lord who took them out of the land of Egypt: this same night is a watch-night to the Lord for all the children of Israel, through all their generations.
02O||12||43||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, This is the law of the Passover: no man who is not an Israelite is to take of it:
02O||12||44||But every man's servant, whom he has got for money, may take of it, when he has had circumcision.
02O||12||45||A man from a strange country living among you, and a servant working for payment, may not take part in it.
02O||12||46||It is to be taken in one house; not a bit of the flesh is to be taken out of the house, and no bone of it may be broken.
02O||12||47||All Israel is to keep the feast.
02O||12||48||And if a man from another country is living with you, and has a desire to keep the Passover to the Lord, let all the males of his family undergo circumcision, and then let him come near and keep it; for he will then be as one of your people; but no one without circumcision may keep it.
02O||12||49||The law is the same for him who is an Israelite by birth and for the man from a strange country who is living with you.
02O||12||50||So the children of Israel did as the Lord gave orders to Moses and Aaron.
02O||12||51||And on that very day the Lord took the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.
02O||13||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||13||2||Let the first male child of every mother among the children of Israel be kept holy for me, even the first male birth among man or beast; for it is mine.
02O||13||3||And Moses said to the people, Let this day, on which you came out of Egypt, out of your prison-house, be kept for ever in memory; for by the strength of his hand the Lord has taken you out from this place; let no leavened bread be used.
02O||13||4||On this day, in the month Abib, you are going out.
02O||13||5||And it will be that, when the Lord takes you into the land of the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Amorite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, the land which he made an oath to your fathers that he would give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, you will do this act of worship in this month.
02O||13||6||For seven days let your food be unleavened cakes; and on the seventh day there is to be a feast to the Lord.
02O||13||7||Unleavened cakes are to be your food through all the seven days; let no leavened bread be seen among you, or any leaven, in any part of your land.
02O||13||8||And you will say to your son in that day, It is because of what the Lord did for me when I came out of Egypt.
02O||13||9||And this will be for a sign to you on your hand and for a mark on your brow, so that the law of the Lord may be in your mouth: for with a strong hand the Lord took you out of Egypt.
02O||13||10||So let this order be kept, at the right time, from year to year.
02O||13||11||And when the Lord takes you into the land of Canaan, as he made his oath to you and to your fathers, and gives it to you,
02O||13||12||You are to put on one side for the Lord every mother's first male child, the first-fruit of her body, and the first young one of every beast; every male is holy to the Lord.
02O||13||13||And for the young of an ass you may give a lamb in payment, or if you will not make payment for it, its neck is to be broken; but for all the first sons among your children, let payment be made.
02O||13||14||And when your son says to you in time to come, What is the reason for this? say to him, By the strength of his hand the Lord took us out of Egypt, out of the prison-house:
02O||13||15||And when Pharaoh made his heart hard and would not let us go, the Lord sent death on all the first sons in Egypt, of man and of beast: and so every first male who comes to birth is offered to the Lord; but for all the first of my sons I give a price.
02O||13||16||And this will be for a sign on your hand and for a mark on your brow: for by the strength of his hand the Lord took us out of Egypt.
02O||13||17||Now after Pharaoh had let the people go, God did not take them through the land of the Philistines, though that was near: for God said, If the people see war, they may have a change of heart and go back to Egypt.
02O||13||18||But God took the people round by the waste land near the Red Sea: and the children of Israel went up in fighting order out of the land of Egypt.
02O||13||19||And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him, for Joseph had made the children of Israel take an oath, saying, God will certainly keep you in mind; and you are to take my bones away with you.
02O||13||20||Then they went on their journey from Succoth, and put up their tents in Etham at the edge of the waste land.
02O||13||21||And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud, guiding them on their way; and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light: so that they were able to go on day and night:
02O||13||22||The pillar of cloud went ever before them by day, and the pillar of fire by night.
02O||14||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||14||2||Give orders to the children of Israel to go back and put up their tents before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, in front of Baal-zephon, opposite to which you are to put up your tents by the sea.
02O||14||3||And Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are wandering without direction, they are shut in by the waste land.
02O||14||4||And I will make Pharaoh's heart hard, and he will come after them and I will be honoured over Pharaoh and all his army, so that the Egyptians may see that I am the Lord. And they did so.
02O||14||5||And word came to Pharaoh of the flight of the people: and the feeling of Pharaoh and of his servants about the people was changed, and they said, Why have we let Israel go, so that they will do no more work for us?
02O||14||6||So he had his war-carriage made ready and took his people with him:
02O||14||7||And he took six hundred carriages, all the carriages of Egypt, and captains over all of them.
02O||14||8||And the Lord made the heart of Pharaoh hard, and he went after the children of Israel: for the children of Israel had gone out without fear.
02O||14||9||But the Egyptians went after them, all the horses and carriages of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them in their tents by the sea, by Pihahiroth, before Baal-zephon.
02O||14||10||And when Pharaoh came near, the children of Israel, lifting up their eyes, saw the Egyptians coming after them, and were full of fear; and their cry went up to God.
02O||14||11||And they said to Moses, Was there no resting-place for the dead in Egypt, that you have taken us away to come to our death in the waste land? why have you taken us out of Egypt?
02O||14||12||Did we not say to you in Egypt, Let us be as we are, working for the Egyptians? for it is better to be the servants of the Egyptians than to come to our death in the waste land.
02O||14||13||But Moses said, Keep where you are and have no fear; now you will see the salvation of the Lord which he will give you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you will never see again.
02O||14||14||The Lord will make war for you, you have only to keep quiet.
02O||14||15||And the Lord said to Moses, Why are you crying out to me? give the children of Israel the order to go forward.
02O||14||16||And let your rod be lifted up and your hand stretched out over the sea, and it will be parted in two; and the children of Israel will go through on dry land.
02O||14||17||And I will make the heart of the Egyptians hard, and they will go in after them: and I will be honoured over Pharaoh and over his army, his war-carriages, and his horsemen.
02O||14||18||And the Egyptians will see that I am the Lord, when I get honour over Pharaoh and his war-carriages and his horsemen.
02O||14||19||Then the angel of God, who had been before the tents of Israel, took his place at their back; and the pillar of cloud, moving from before them, came to rest at their back:
02O||14||20||And it came between the army of Egypt and the army of Israel; and there was a dark cloud between them, and they went on through the night; but the one army came no nearer to the other all the night.
02O||14||21||And when Moses' hand was stretched out over the sea, the Lord with a strong east wind made the sea go back all night, and the waters were parted in two and the sea became dry land.
02O||14||22||And the children of Israel went through the sea on dry land: and the waters were a wall on their right side and on their left.
02O||14||23||Then the Egyptians went after them into the middle of the sea, all Pharaoh's horses and his war-carriages and his horsemen.
02O||14||24||And in the morning watch, the Lord, looking out on the armies of the Egyptians from the pillar of fire and cloud, sent trouble on the army of the Egyptians;
02O||14||25||And made the wheels of their war-carriages stiff, so that they had hard work driving them: so the Egyptians said, Let us go in flight from before the face of Israel, for the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians.
02O||14||26||And the Lord said to Moses, Let your hand be stretched out over the sea, and the waters will come back again on the Egyptians, and on their war-carriages and on their horsemen.
02O||14||27||And when Moses' hand was stretched out over the sea, at dawn the sea came flowing back, meeting the Egyptians in their flight, and the Lord sent destruction on the Egyptians in the middle of the sea.
02O||14||28||And the waters came back, covering the war-carriages and the horsemen and all the army of Pharaoh which went after them into the middle of the sea; not one of them was to be seen.
02O||14||29||But the children of Israel went through the sea walking on dry land, and the waters were a wall on their right side and on their left.
02O||14||30||So that day the Lord gave Israel salvation from the hands of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the sea's edge.
02O||14||31||And Israel saw the great work which the Lord had done against the Egyptians, and the fear of the Lord came on the people and they had faith in the Lord and in his servant Moses.
02O||15||1||Then Moses and the children of Israel made this song to the Lord, and said, I will make a song to the Lord, for he is lifted up in glory: the horse and the horseman he has sent down into the sea.
02O||15||2||The Lord is my strength and my strong helper, he has become my salvation: he is my God and I will give him praise; my father's God and I will give him glory.
02O||15||3||The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name.
02O||15||4||Pharaoh's war-carriages and his army he has sent down into the sea: the best of his captains have gone down into the Red Sea.
02O||15||5||They were covered by the deep waters: like a stone they went down under the waves.
02O||15||6||Full of glory, O Lord, is the power of your right hand; by your right hand those who came against you are broken.
02O||15||7||When you are lifted up in power, all those who come against you are crushed: when you send out your wrath, they are burned up like dry grass.
02O||15||8||By your breath the waves were massed together, the flowing waters were lifted up like a pillar; the deep waters became solid in the heart of the sea.
02O||15||9||Egypt said, I will go after them, I will overtake, I will make division of their goods: my desire will have its way with them; my sword will be uncovered, my hand will send destruction on them.
02O||15||10||You sent your wind and the sea came over them: they went down like lead into the great waters.
02O||15||11||Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods? who is like you, in holy glory, to be praised with fear, doing wonders?
02O||15||12||When your right hand was stretched out, the mouth of the earth was open for them.
02O||15||13||In your mercy you went before the people whom you have made yours; guiding them in your strength to your holy place.
02O||15||14||Hearing of you the peoples were shaking in fear: the people of Philistia were gripped with pain.
02O||15||15||The chiefs of Edom were troubled in heart; the strong men of Moab were in the grip of fear: all the people of Canaan became like water.
02O||15||16||Fear and grief came on them; by the strength of your arm they were turned to stone; till your people went over, O Lord, till the people went over whom you have made yours.
02O||15||17||You will take them in, planting them in the mountain of your heritage, the place, O Lord, where you have made your house, the holy place, O Lord, the building of your hands.
02O||15||18||The Lord is King for ever and ever.
02O||15||19||For the horses of Pharaoh, with his war-carriages and his horsemen, went into the sea, and the Lord sent the waters of the sea back over them; but the children of Israel went through the sea on dry land.
02O||15||20||And Miriam, the woman prophet, the sister of Aaron, took an instrument of music in her hand; and all the women went after her with music and dances.
02O||15||21||And Miriam, answering, said, Make a song to the Lord, for he is lifted up in glory; the horse and the horseman he has sent into the sea.
02O||15||22||Then Moses took Israel forward from the Red Sea, and they went out into the waste land of Shur; and for three days they were in the waste land where there was no water.
02O||15||23||And when they came to Marah, the water was no good for drinking, for the waters of Marah were bitter, which is why it was named Marah.
02O||15||24||And the people, crying out against Moses, said, What are we to have for drink?
02O||15||25||And in answer to his prayer, the Lord made him see a tree, and when he put it into the water, the water was made sweet. There he gave them a law and an order, testing them;
02O||15||26||And he said, If with all your heart you will give attention to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his eyes, giving ear to his orders and keeping his laws, I will not put on you any of the diseases which I put on the Egyptians: for I am the Lord your life-giver.
02O||15||27||And they came to Elim where there were twelve water-springs and seventy palm-trees: and they put up their tents there by the waters.
02O||16||1||And they went on their way from Elim, and all the children of Israel came into the waste land of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they went out of the land of Egypt.
02O||16||2||And all the children of Israel were crying out against Moses and Aaron in the waste land:
02O||16||3||And the children of Israel said to them, It would have been better for the Lord to have put us to death in the land of Egypt, where we were seated by the flesh-pots and had bread enough for our needs; for you have taken us out to this waste of sand, to put all this people to death through need of food.
02O||16||4||Then the Lord said to Moses, See, I will send down bread from heaven for you; and the people will go out every day and get enough for the day's needs; so that I may put them to the test to see if they will keep my laws or not.
02O||16||5||And on the sixth day they are to make ready what they get in, and it will be twice as much as they get on the other days.
02O||16||6||And Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, This evening it will be clear to you that it is the Lord who has taken you out of the land of Egypt:
02O||16||7||And in the morning you will see the glory of the Lord; for your angry words against the Lord have come to his ears: and what are we that you are crying out against us?
02O||16||8||And Moses said, The Lord will give you meat for your food at evening, and in the morning bread in full measure; for your outcry against the Lord has come to his ears: for what are we? your outcry is not against us but against the Lord.
02O||16||9||And Moses said to Aaron, Say to all the people of Israel, Come near before the Lord for he has given ear to your outcry.
02O||16||10||And while Aaron was talking to the children of Israel, their eyes were turned in the direction of the waste land, and they saw the glory of the Lord shining in the cloud.
02O||16||11||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||16||12||The outcry of the children of Israel has come to my ears: say to them now, At nightfall you will have meat for your food, and in the morning bread in full measure; and you will see that I am the Lord your God.
02O||16||13||And it came about that in the evening little birds came up and the place was covered with them: and in the morning there was dew all round about the tents.
02O||16||14||And when the dew was gone, on the face of the earth was a small round thing, like small drops of ice on the earth.
02O||16||15||And when the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, What is it? for they had no idea what it was. And Moses said to them, It is the bread which the Lord has given you for your food.
02O||16||16||This is what the Lord has said, Let every man take up as much as he has need of; at the rate of one omer for every person, let every man take as much as is needed for his family.
02O||16||17||And the children of Israel did so, and some took more and some less.
02O||16||18||And when it was measured, he who had taken up much had nothing over, and he who had little had enough; every man had taken what he was able to make use of.
02O||16||19||And Moses said to them, Let nothing be kept till the morning.
02O||16||20||But they gave no attention to Moses, and some of them kept it till the morning and there were worms in it and it had an evil smell: and Moses was angry with them.
02O||16||21||And they took it up morning by morning, every man as he had need: and when the sun was high it was gone.
02O||16||22||And on the sixth day they took up twice as much of the bread, two omers for every person: and all the rulers of the people gave Moses word of it.
02O||16||23||And he said, This is what the Lord has said, Tomorrow is a day of rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord: what has to be cooked may be cooked; and what is over, put on one side to be kept till the morning.
02O||16||24||And they kept it till the morning as Moses had said: and no smell came from it, and it had no worms.
02O||16||25||And Moses said, Make your meal today of what you have, for this day is a Sabbath to the Lord: today you will not get any in the fields.
02O||16||26||For six days you will get it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will not be any.
02O||16||27||But still on the seventh day some of the people went out to get it, and there was not any.
02O||16||28||And the Lord said to Moses, How long will you go against my orders and my laws?
02O||16||29||See, because the Lord has given you the Sabbath, he gives you on the sixth day bread enough for two days; let every man keep where he is; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
02O||16||30||So the people took their rest on the seventh day.
02O||16||31||And this bread was named manna by Israel: it was white, like a grain seed, and its taste was like cakes made with honey.
02O||16||32||And Moses said, This is the order which the Lord has given: Let one omer of it be kept for future generations, so that they may see the bread which I gave you for your food in the waste land, when I took you out from the land of Egypt.
02O||16||33||And Moses said to Aaron, Take a pot and put one omer of manna in it, and put it away before the Lord, to be kept for future generations.
02O||16||34||So Aaron put it away in front of the holy chest to be kept, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
02O||16||35||And the children of Israel had manna for their food for forty years, till they came to a land with people in it, till they came to the edge of the land of Canaan.
02O||16||36||Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
02O||17||1||And the children of Israel went on from the waste land of Sin, by stages as the Lord gave them orders, and put up their tents in Rephidim: and there was no drinking-water for the people.
02O||17||2||So the people were angry with Moses, and said, Give us water for drinking. And Moses said, Why are you angry with me? and why do you put God to the test?
02O||17||3||And the people were in great need of water; and they made an outcry against Moses, and said, Why have you taken us out of Egypt to send death on us and our children and our cattle through need of water?
02O||17||4||And Moses, crying out to the Lord, said, What am I to do to this people? they are almost ready to put me to death by stoning.
02O||17||5||And the Lord said to Moses, Go on before the people, and take some of the chiefs of Israel with you, and take in your hand the rod which was stretched out over the Nile, and go.
02O||17||6||See, I will take my place before you on the rock in Horeb; and when you give the rock a blow, water will come out of it, and the people will have drink. And Moses did so before the eyes of the chiefs of Israel.
02O||17||7||And he gave that place the name Massah and Meribah, because the children of Israel were angry, and because they put the Lord to the test, saying, Is the Lord with us or not?
02O||17||8||Then Amalek came and made war on Israel in Rephidim.
02O||17||9||And Moses said to Joshua, Get together a band of men for us and go out, make war on Amalek: tomorrow I will take my place on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.
02O||17||10||So Joshua did as Moses said to him, and went to war with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
02O||17||11||Now while Moses' hand was lifted up, Israel was the stronger: but when he let his hand go down, Amalek became the stronger.
02O||17||12||But Moses' hands became tired; so they put a stone under him and he took his seat on it, Aaron and Hur supporting his hands, one on one side and one on the other; so his hands were kept up without falling till the sun went down.
02O||17||13||And Joshua overcame Amalek and his people with the sword.
02O||17||14||And the Lord said to Moses, Make a record of this in a book, so that it may be kept in memory, and say it again in the ears of Joshua: that all memory of Amalek is to be completely uprooted from the earth.
02O||17||15||Then Moses put up an altar and gave it the name of Yahweh-nissi:
02O||17||16||For he said, The Lord has taken his oath that there will be war with Amalek from generation to generation.
02O||18||1||Now news came to Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, of all God had done for Moses and for Israel his people, and how the Lord had taken Israel out of Egypt.
02O||18||2||And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her away,
02O||18||3||And her two sons, one of whom was named Gershom, for he said, I have been living in a strange land:
02O||18||4||And the name of the other was Eliezer, for he said, The God of my father was my help, and kept me safe from the sword of Pharaoh:
02O||18||5||And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife to where Moses had put up his tent in the waste land, by the mountain of God.
02O||18||6||And he said to Moses, I, your father-in-law, have come to you, with your wife and your two sons.
02O||18||7||And Moses went out to his father-in-law, and went down on his face before him and gave him a kiss; and they said to one another, Are you well? and they came into the tent.
02O||18||8||And Moses gave his father-in-law an account of all the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians because of Israel, and of all the troubles which had come on them by the way, and how the Lord had given them salvation.
02O||18||9||And Jethro was glad because the Lord had been good to Israel, freeing them from the power of the Egyptians.
02O||18||10||And Jethro said, Praise be to the Lord, who has taken you out of the hand of Pharaoh and out of the hand of the Egyptians; freeing the people from the yoke of the Egyptians.
02O||18||11||Now I am certain that the Lord is greater than all gods, for he has overcome them in their pride.
02O||18||12||Then Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, made a burned offering to God: and Aaron came, with the chiefs of Israel, and had a meal with Moses' father-in-law, before God.
02O||18||13||Now on the day after, Moses took his seat to give decisions for the people: and the people were waiting before Moses from morning till evening.
02O||18||14||And when Moses' father-in-law saw all he was doing, he said, What is this you are doing for the people? why are you seated here by yourself, with all the people waiting before you from morning till evening?
02O||18||15||And Moses said to his father-in-law, Because the people come to me to get directions from God:
02O||18||16||And if they have any question between themselves, they come to me, and I am judge between a man and his neighbour, and I give them the orders and laws of God.
02O||18||17||And Moses' father-in-law said to him, What you are doing is not good.
02O||18||18||Your strength and that of the people will be completely used up: this work is more than you are able to do by yourself.
02O||18||19||Give ear now to my suggestion, and may God be with you: you are to be the people's representative before God, taking their causes to him:
02O||18||20||Teaching them his rules and his laws, guiding them in the way they have to go, and making clear to them the work they have to do.
02O||18||21||But for the rest, take from among the people able men, such as have the fear of God, true men hating profits wrongly made; and put such men over them, to be captains of thousands, captains of hundreds and of fifties and of tens;
02O||18||22||And let them be judges in the causes of the people at all times: and let them put before you all important questions, but in small things let them give decisions themselves: in this way, it will be less hard for you, and they will take the weight off you.
02O||18||23||If you do this, and God gives approval, then you will be able to go on without weariness, and all this people will go to their tents in peace.
02O||18||24||So Moses took note of the words of his father-in-law, and did as he had said.
02O||18||25||And he made selection of able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, captains of thousands, captains of hundreds and of fifties and of tens.
02O||18||26||And they were judges in the causes of the people at all times: the hard questions they put before Moses; but on every small point they gave decisions themselves.
02O||18||27||And Moses let his father-in-law go away, and he went back to his land.
02O||19||1||In the third month after the children of Israel went out from Egypt, on the same day, they came into the waste land of Sinai.
02O||19||2||And when they had gone away from Rephidim and had come into the waste land of Sinai, they put up their tents in the waste land before the mountain: there Israel put up its tents.
02O||19||3||And Moses went up to God, and the voice of the Lord came to him from the mountain, saying, Say to the family of Jacob, and give word to the children of Israel:
02O||19||4||You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I took you, as on eagles' wings, guiding you to myself.
02O||19||5||If now you will truly give ear to my voice and keep my agreement, you will be my special property out of all the peoples: for all the earth is mine:
02O||19||6||And you will be a kingdom of priests to me, and a holy nation. These are the words which you are to say to the children of Israel.
02O||19||7||And Moses came and sent for the chiefs of the people and put before them all these words which the Lord had given him orders to say.
02O||19||8||And all the people, answering together, said, Whatever the Lord has said we will do. And Moses took back to the Lord the words of the people.
02O||19||9||And the Lord said to Moses, See, I will come to you in a thick cloud, so that what I say to you may come to the ears of the people and they may have belief in you for ever. And Moses gave the Lord word of what the people had said.
02O||19||10||And the Lord said to Moses, Go to the people and make them holy today and tomorrow, and let their clothing be washed.
02O||19||11||And by the third day let them be ready: for on the third day the Lord will come down on Mount Sinai, before the eyes of all the people.
02O||19||12||And let limits be marked out for the people round the mountain, and say to them, Take care not to go up the mountain or near the sides of it: whoever puts his foot on the mountain will certainly come to his death:
02O||19||13||He is not to be touched by a hand, but is to be stoned or have an arrow put through him; man or beast, he is to be put to death: at the long sounding of a horn they may come up to the mountain.
02O||19||14||Then Moses went down from the mountain to the people, and made the people holy; and their clothing was washed.
02O||19||15||And he said to the people, Be ready by the third day: do not come near a woman.
02O||19||16||And when morning came on the third day, there were thunders and flames and a thick cloud on the mountain, and a horn sounding very loud; and all the people in the tents were shaking with fear.
02O||19||17||And Moses made the people come out of their tents and take their places before God; and they came to the foot of the mountain,
02O||19||18||And all the mountain of Sinai was smoking, for the Lord had come down on it in fire: and the smoke of it went up like the smoke of a great burning; and all the mountain was shaking.
02O||19||19||And when the sound of the horn became louder and louder, Moses' words were answered by the voice of God.
02O||19||20||Then the Lord came down on to Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain, and the Lord sent for Moses to come up to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.
02O||19||21||And the Lord said to Moses, Go down and give the people orders to keep back, for fear that a great number of them, forcing their way through to see the Lord, may come to destruction.
02O||19||22||And let the priests who come near to the Lord make themselves holy, for fear that the Lord may come on them suddenly.
02O||19||23||And Moses said to the Lord, The people will not be able to come up the mountain, for you gave us orders to put limits round the mountain, marking it out and making it holy.
02O||19||24||And the Lord said to him, Go down, and you and Aaron may come up; but let not the priests and the people make their way through to the Lord, or he will come on them suddenly.
02O||19||25||So Moses went down to the people and said this to them.
02O||20||1||And God said all these words:
02O||20||2||I am the Lord your God who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house.
02O||20||3||You are to have no other gods but me.
02O||20||4||You are not to make an image or picture of anything in heaven or on the earth or in the waters under the earth:
02O||20||5||You may not go down on your faces before them or give them worship: for I, the Lord your God, am a God who will not give his honour to another; and I will send punishment on the children for the wrongdoing of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation of my haters;
02O||20||6||And I will have mercy through a thousand generations on those who have love for me and keep my laws.
02O||20||7||You are not to make use of the name of the Lord your God for an evil purpose; whoever takes the Lord's name on his lips for an evil purpose will be judged a sinner by the Lord
02O||20||8||Keep in memory the Sabbath and let it be a holy day.
02O||20||9||On six days do all your work:
02O||20||10||But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; on that day you are to do no work, you or your son or your daughter, your man-servant or your woman-servant, your cattle or the man from a strange country who is living among you:
02O||20||11||For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and everything in them, and he took his rest on the seventh day: for this reason the Lord has given his blessing to the seventh day and made it holy.
02O||20||12||Give honour to your father and to your mother, so that your life may be long in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
02O||20||13||Do not put anyone to death without cause.
02O||20||14||Do not be false to the married relation.
02O||20||15||Do not take the property of another.
02O||20||16||Do not give false witness against your neighbour.
02O||20||17||Let not your desire be turned to your neighbour's house, or his wife or his man-servant or his woman-servant or his ox or his ass or anything which is his.
02O||20||18||And all the people were watching the thunderings and the flames and the sound of the horn and the mountain smoking; and when they saw it, they kept far off, shaking with fear.
02O||20||19||And they said to Moses, To your words we will give ear, but let not the voice of God come to our ears, for fear death may come on us.
02O||20||20||And Moses said to the people, Have no fear: for God has come to put you to the test, so that fearing him you may be kept from sin.
02O||20||21||And the people kept their places far off, but Moses went near to the dark cloud where God was.
02O||20||22||And the Lord said to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, You yourselves have seen that my voice has come to you from heaven
02O||20||23||Gods of silver and gods of gold you are not to make for yourselves.
02O||20||24||Make for me an altar of earth, offering on it your burned offerings and your peace-offerings, your sheep and your oxen: in every place where I have put the memory of my name, I will come to you and give you my blessing.
02O||20||25||And if you make me an altar of stone do not make it of cut stones: for the touch of an instrument will make it unclean.
02O||20||26||And do not go up by steps to my altar, for fear that your bodies may be seen uncovered.
02O||21||1||Now these are the laws which you are to put before them.
02O||21||2||If you get a Hebrew servant for money, he is to be your servant for six years, and in the seventh year you are to let him go free without payment.
02O||21||3||If he comes to you by himself, let him go away by himself: if he is married, let his wife go away with him.
02O||21||4||If his master gives him a wife, and he gets sons or daughters by her, the wife and her children will be the property of the master, and the servant is to go away by himself.
02O||21||5||But if the servant says clearly, My master and my wife and children are dear to me; I have no desire to be free:
02O||21||6||Then his master is to take him to the gods of the house, and at the door, or at its framework, he is to make a hole in his ear with a sharp-pointed instrument; and he will be his servant for ever.
02O||21||7||And if a man gives his daughter for a price to be a servant, she is not to go away free as the men-servants do.
02O||21||8||If she is not pleasing to her master who has taken her for himself, let a payment be made for her so that she may go free; her master has no power to get a price for her and send her to a strange land, because he has been false to her.
02O||21||9||And if he gives her to his son, he is to do everything for her as if she was his daughter.
02O||21||10||And if he takes another woman, her food and clothing and her married rights are not to be less.
02O||21||11||And if he does not do these three things for her, she has the right to go free without payment.
02O||21||12||He who gives a man a death-blow is himself to be put to death.
02O||21||13||But if he had no evil purpose against him, and God gave him into his hand, I will give you a place to which he may go in flight.
02O||21||14||But if a man makes an attack on his neighbour on purpose, to put him to death by deceit, you are to take him from my altar and put him to death.
02O||21||15||Any man who gives a blow to his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death.
02O||21||16||Any man who gets another into his power in order to get a price for him is to be put to death, if you take him in the act.
02O||21||17||Any man cursing his father or his mother is to be put to death.
02O||21||18||If, in a fight, one man gives another a blow with a stone, or with the shut hand, not causing his death, but making him keep in bed;
02O||21||19||If he is able to get up again and go about with a stick, the other will be let off; only he will have to give him payment for the loss of his time, and see that he is cared for till he is well.
02O||21||20||If a man gives his man-servant or his woman-servant blows with a rod, causing death, he is certainly to undergo punishment.
02O||21||21||But, at the same time, if the servant goes on living for a day or two, the master is not to get punishment, for the servant is his property.
02O||21||22||If men, while fighting, do damage to a woman with child, causing the loss of the child, but no other evil comes to her, the man will have to make payment up to the amount fixed by her husband, in agreement with the decision of the judges.
02O||21||23||But if damage comes to her, let life be given in payment for life,
02O||21||24||Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
02O||21||25||Burning for burning, wound for wound, blow for blow.
02O||21||26||If a man gives his man-servant or his woman-servant a blow in the eye, causing its destruction, he is to let him go free on account of the damage to his eye.
02O||21||27||Or if the loss of a tooth is caused by his blow, he will let him go free on account of his tooth.
02O||21||28||If an ox comes to be the cause of death to a man or a woman, the ox is to be stoned, and its flesh may not be used for food; but the owner will not be judged responsible.
02O||21||29||But if the ox has frequently done such damage in the past, and the owner has had word of it and has not kept it under control, so that it has been the cause of the death of a man or woman, not only is the ox to be stoned, but its owner is to be put to death.
02O||21||30||If a price is put on his life, let him make payment of whatever price is fixed.
02O||21||31||If the death of a son or of a daughter has been caused, the punishment is to be in agreement with this rule.
02O||21||32||If the death of a man-servant or of a woman-servant is caused by the ox, the owner is to give their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox is to be stoned.
02O||21||33||If a man makes a hole in the earth without covering it up, and an ox or an ass dropping into it comes to its death;
02O||21||34||The owner of the hole is responsible; he will have to make payment to their owner, but the dead beast will be his.
02O||21||35||And if one man's ox does damage to another man's ox, causing its death, then the living ox is to be exchanged for money, and division made of the price of it, and of the price of the dead one.
02O||21||36||But if it is common knowledge that the ox has frequently done such damage in the past, and its owner has not kept it under control, he will have to give ox for ox; and the dead beast will be his.
02O||22||1||If a man takes without right another man's ox or his sheep, and puts it to death or gets a price for it, he is to give five oxen for an ox, or four sheep for a sheep, in payment: the thief will have to make payment for what he has taken; if he has no money, he himself will have to be exchanged for money, so that payment may be made.
02O||22||2||If a thief is taken in the act of forcing his way into a house, and his death is caused by a blow, the owner of the house is not responsible for his blood.
02O||22||3||But if it is after dawn, he will be responsible.
02O||22||4||If he still has what he had taken, whatever it is, ox or ass or sheep, he is to give twice its value.
02O||22||5||If a man makes a fire in a field or a vine-garden, and lets the fire do damage to another man's field, he is to give of the best produce of his field or his vine-garden to make up for it.
02O||22||6||If there is a fire and the flames get to the thorns at the edge of the field, causing destruction of the cut grain or of the living grain, or of the field, he who made the fire will have to make up for the damage.
02O||22||7||If a man puts money or goods in the care of his neighbour to keep for him, and it is taken from the man's house, if they get the thief, he will have to make payment of twice the value.
02O||22||8||If they do not get the thief, let the master of the house come before the judges and take an oath that he has not put his hand on his neighbour's goods.
02O||22||9||In any question about an ox or an ass or a sheep or clothing, or about the loss of any property which anyone says is his, let the two sides put their cause before God; and he who is judged to be in the wrong is to make payment to his neighbour of twice the value.
02O||22||10||If a man puts an ass or an ox or a sheep or any beast into the keeping of his neighbour, and it comes to death or is damaged or is taken away, without any person seeing it:
02O||22||11||If he takes his oath before the Lord that he has not put his hand to his neighbour's goods, the owner is to take his word for it and he will not have to make payment for it.
02O||22||12||But if it is taken from him by a thief, he is to make up for the loss of it to its owner.
02O||22||13||But if it has been damaged by a beast, and he is able to make this clear, he will not have to make payment for what was damaged.
02O||22||14||If a man gets from his neighbour the use of one of his beasts, and it is damaged or put to death when the owner is not with it, he will certainly have to make payment for the loss.
02O||22||15||If the owner is with it, he will not have to make payment: if he gave money for the use of it, the loss is covered by the payment.
02O||22||16||If a man takes a virgin, who has not given her word to another man, and has connection with her, he will have to give a bride-price for her to be his wife.
02O||22||17||If her father will not give her to him on any account, he will have to give the regular payment for virgins.
02O||22||18||Any woman using unnatural powers or secret arts is to be put to death.
02O||22||19||Any man who has sex connection with a beast is to be put to death.
02O||22||20||Complete destruction will come on any man who makes offerings to any other god but the Lord.
02O||22||21||Do no wrong to a man from a strange country, and do not be hard on him; for you yourselves were living in a strange country, in the land of Egypt.
02O||22||22||Do no wrong to a widow, or to a child whose father is dead.
02O||22||23||If you are cruel to them in any way, and their cry comes up to me, I will certainly give ear;
02O||22||24||And in the heat of my wrath I will put you to death with the sword, so that your wives will be widows and your children without fathers.
02O||22||25||If you let any of the poor among my people have the use of your money, do not be a hard creditor to him, and do not take interest.
02O||22||26||If ever you take your neighbour's clothing in exchange for the use of your money, let him have it back before the sun goes down:
02O||22||27||For it is the only thing he has for covering his skin; what is he to go to sleep in? and when his cry comes up to me, I will give ear, for my mercy is great.
02O||22||28||You may not say evil of the judges, or put a curse on the ruler of your people.
02O||22||29||Do not keep back your offerings from the wealth of your grain and your vines. The first of your sons you are to give to me.
02O||22||30||In the same way with your oxen and your sheep: for seven days let the young one be with its mother; on the eighth day give it to me.
02O||22||31||You are to be holy men to me: the flesh of no animal whose death has been caused by the beasts of the field may be used for your food; it is to be given to the dogs.
02O||23||1||Do not let a false statement go further; do not make an agreement with evil-doers to be a false witness.
02O||23||2||Do not be moved to do wrong by the general opinion, or give the support of your words to a wrong decision:
02O||23||3||But, on the other hand, do not be turned from what is right in order to give support to a poor man's cause.
02O||23||4||If you come across the ox or the ass of one who is no friend to you wandering from its way, you are to take it back to him.
02O||23||5||If you see the ass of one who has no love for you bent down to the earth under the weight which is put on it, you are to come to its help, even against your desire.
02O||23||6||Let no wrong decisions be given in the poor man's cause.
02O||23||7||Keep yourselves far from any false business; never let the upright or him who has done no wrong be put to death: for I will make the evil-doer responsible for his sin.
02O||23||8||Take no rewards in a cause: for rewards make blind those who have eyes to see, and make the decisions of the upright false.
02O||23||9||Do not be hard on the man from a strange country who is living among you; for you have had experience of the feelings of one who is far from the land of his birth, because you yourselves were living in Egypt, in a strange land.
02O||23||10||For six years put seed into your fields and get in the increase;
02O||23||11||But in the seventh year let the land have a rest and be unplanted; so that the poor may have food from it: and let the beasts of the field take the rest. Do the same with your vine-gardens and your olive-trees.
02O||23||12||For six days do your work, and on the seventh day keep the Sabbath; so that your ox and your ass may have rest, together with the son of your servant and the man from a strange land living among you.
02O||23||13||Take note of all these things which I have said to you, and let not the names of other gods come into your minds or from your lips.
02O||23||14||Three times in the year you are to keep a feast to me.
02O||23||15||You are to keep the feast of unleavened bread; for seven days let your bread be without leaven, as I gave you orders, at the regular time in the month Abib (for in it you came out of Egypt); and let no one come before me without an offering:
02O||23||16||And the feast of the grain-cutting, the first-fruits of your planted fields: and the feast at the start of the year, when you have got in all the fruit from your fields.
02O||23||17||Three times in the year let all your males come before the Lord God.
02O||23||18||Do not give the blood of my offering with leavened bread; and do not let the fat of my feast be kept all night till the morning.
02O||23||19||The best of the first-fruits of your land are to be taken into the house of the Lord your God. The young goat is not to be cooked in its mother's milk.
02O||23||20||See, I am sending an angel before you, to keep you on your way and to be your guide into the place which I have made ready for you.
02O||23||21||Give attention to him and give ear to his voice; do not go against him; for your wrongdoing will not be overlooked by him, because my name is in him.
02O||23||22||But if you truly give ear to his voice, and do whatever I say, then I will be against those who are against you, fighting those who are fighting you.
02O||23||23||And my angel will go before you, guiding you into the land of the Amorite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Canaanite and the Hivite and the Jebusite, and they will be cut off by my hand.
02O||23||24||Do not go down on your faces and give worship to their gods, or do as they do; but overcome them completely, and let their pillars be broken down.
02O||23||25||And give worship to the Lord your God, who will send his blessing on your bread and on your water; and I will take all disease away from among you.
02O||23||26||All your animals will give birth without loss, not one will be without young in all your land; I will give you a full measure of life.
02O||23||27||I will send my fear before you, putting to flight all the people to whom you come; all those who are against you will go in flight, turning their backs before you.
02O||23||28||I will send hornets before you, driving out the Hivite and the Canaanite and the Hittite before your face.
02O||23||29||I will not send them all out in one year, for fear that their land may become waste, and the beasts of the field be increased overmuch against you.
02O||23||30||Little by little I will send them away before you, till your numbers are increased and you take up your heritage in the land.
02O||23||31||I will let the limits of your land be from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the waste land to the river Euphrates: for I will give the people of those lands into your power; and you will send them out before you.
02O||23||32||Make no agreement with them or with their gods.
02O||23||33||Let them not go on living in your land, or they will make you do evil against me: for if you give worship to their gods, it will certainly be a cause of sin to you.
02O||24||1||And he said to Moses, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, and Nadab and Abihu and seventy of the chiefs of Israel; and give me worship from a distance.
02O||24||2||And Moses only may come near to the Lord; but the others are not to come near, and the people may not come up with them.
02O||24||3||Then Moses came and put before the people all the words of the Lord and his laws: and all the people, answering with one voice, said, Whatever the Lord has said we will do.
02O||24||4||Then Moses put down in writing all the words of the Lord, and he got up early in the morning and made an altar at the foot of the mountain, with twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel.
02O||24||5||And he sent some of the young men of the children of Israel to make burned offerings and peace-offerings of oxen to the Lord.
02O||24||6||And Moses took half the blood and put it in basins; draining out half of the blood over the altar.
02O||24||7||And he took the book of the agreement, reading it in the hearing of the people: and they said, Everything which the Lord has said we will do, and we will keep his laws.
02O||24||8||Then Moses took the blood and let it come on the people, and said, This blood is the sign of the agreement which the Lord has made with you in these words.
02O||24||9||Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the chiefs of Israel went up:
02O||24||10||And they saw the God of Israel; and under his feet there was, as it seemed, a jewelled floor, clear as the heavens.
02O||24||11||And he put not his hand on the chiefs of the children of Israel: they saw God, and took food and drink.
02O||24||12||And the Lord said to Moses, Come up to me on the mountain, and take your place there: and I will give you the stones on which I have put in writing the law and the orders, so that you may give the people knowledge of them.
02O||24||13||Then Moses and Joshua his servant got up; and Moses went up into the mountain of God.
02O||24||14||And he said to the chiefs, Keep your places here till we come back to you: Aaron and Hur are with you; if anyone has any cause let him go to them.
02O||24||15||And Moses went up into the mountain, and it was covered by the cloud.
02O||24||16||And the glory of the Lord was resting on Mount Sinai, and the cloud was over it for six days; and on the seventh day he said Moses' name out of the cloud.
02O||24||17||And the glory of the Lord was like a flame on the top of the mountain before the eyes of the children of Israel.
02O||24||18||And Moses went up the mountain, into the cloud, and was there for forty days and forty nights.
02O||25||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||25||2||Say to the children of Israel that they are to make me an offering; from every man who has the impulse in his heart take an offering for me.
02O||25||3||And this is the offering you are to take from them: gold and silver and brass;
02O||25||4||And blue and purple and red, and the best linen, and goats' hair;
02O||25||5||And sheepskins coloured red, and leather, and hard wood;
02O||25||6||Oil for the light, spices for the sweet-smelling oil, sweet perfumes for burning;
02O||25||7||Beryls and stones of value to be put on the ephod and on the priest's bag.
02O||25||8||And let them make me a holy place, so that I may be ever present among them.
02O||25||9||Make the House and everything in it from the designs which I will give you.
02O||25||10||And they are to make an ark of hard wood; two and a half cubits long, and a cubit and a half wide and high.
02O||25||11||It is to be plated inside and out with the best gold, with an edge of gold all round it
02O||25||12||And make four rings of gold for it, to be fixed on its four feet, two rings on one side of it and two on the other.
02O||25||13||And make rods of the same wood, plating them with gold.
02O||25||14||And put the rods through the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.
02O||25||15||The rods are to be kept in the rings, and never taken out.
02O||25||16||Inside the ark you are to put the record which I will give you.
02O||25||17||And you are to make a cover of the best gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
02O||25||18||And at the two ends of the cover you are to make two winged ones of hammered gold,
02O||25||19||One at one end and one at the other; the winged ones are to be part of the cover.
02O||25||20||And their wings are to be outstretched over the cover, and the winged ones are to be opposite one another, facing the cover.
02O||25||21||And put the cover over the ark, and in the ark the record which I will give you.
02O||25||22||And there, between the two winged ones on the cover of the ark, I will come to you, face to face, and make clear to you all the orders I have to give you for the children of Israel.
02O||25||23||And you are to make a table of the same wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide and a cubit and a half high,
02O||25||24||Plated with the best gold, with a gold edge all round it;
02O||25||25||And make a frame all round it, as wide as a man's hand, with a gold edge to the frame.
02O||25||26||And make four gold rings and put them at the four angles, on the four feet of the table;
02O||25||27||The rings are to be fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table is to be lifted.
02O||25||28||Make rods of the same wood, plated with gold, for lifting the table.
02O||25||29||And make the table-vessels, the spoons and the cups and the basins for liquids, all of the best gold.
02O||25||30||And on the table at all times you are to keep my holy bread.
02O||25||31||And you are to make a support for lights, of the best gold; its base and its pillar are to be of hammered gold; its cups, its buds, and its flowers are to be made of the same metal.
02O||25||32||It is to have six branches coming out from its sides; three branches from one side and three from the other.
02O||25||33||Every branch having three cups made like almond flowers, every cup with a bud and a flower, on all the branches.
02O||25||34||And on the pillar, four cups like almond flowers, every one with its bud and its flower:
02O||25||35||And under every two branches a bud, made with the branch, for all the six branches of it.
02O||25||36||The buds and the branches are to be made of the same metal; all together one complete work of hammered gold.
02O||25||37||Then you are to make its seven vessels for the lights, putting them in their place so that they give light in front of it.
02O||25||38||And the instruments and trays for use with it are all to be of the best gold.
02O||25||39||A talent of gold will be needed for it, with all these vessels.
02O||25||40||And see that you make them from the design which you saw on the mountain.
02O||26||1||And you are to make a House for me, with ten curtains of the best linen, blue and purple and red, worked with designs of winged ones by a good workman.
02O||26||2||Every curtain is to be twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.
02O||26||3||Five curtains are to be joined together, and the other five are to be joined together.
02O||26||4||And you are to put twists of blue cord on the edge of the outside curtain of the first group of five, and on the edge of the outside curtain of the second group of five;
02O||26||5||Fifty twists on one curtain and fifty on the other, the twists to be opposite one another.
02O||26||6||Then make fifty gold hooks, joining the curtains together by the hooks, and in this way the House will be made.
02O||26||7||And you are to make curtains of goats' hair for a tent over the House, eleven curtains.
02O||26||8||Every curtain is to be thirty cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.
02O||26||9||Five of these curtains are to be joined together, and the other six are to be joined together, the sixth being folded over to make a hanging in front of the tent.
02O||26||10||And you are to put fifty twists of cord on the edge of the outside curtain of one group, and fifty twists on the edge of the outside curtain of the other group.
02O||26||11||Then make fifty brass hooks and put the hooks into the twists, joining the tent together to make it one.
02O||26||12||And the folded part which is over of the curtains of the tent, the half-curtain which is folded back, will be hanging down over the back of the House.
02O||26||13||And the cubit which is over of the ten curtains at the sides will be hanging over the two sides of the House as a cover.
02O||26||14||And then you are to make a cover for the tent, of sheepskins coloured red, and a cover of leather over that.
02O||26||15||And you are to make upright boards of hard wood for the House.
02O||26||16||Every board is to be ten cubits high and a cubit and a half wide.
02O||26||17||Every board is to be joined to the one nearest to it by two tongues, and so for every board in the House.
02O||26||18||These are the boards needed for the house; twenty boards for the south side,
02O||26||19||With forty silver bases under the twenty boards, two bases under every board to take its tongues.
02O||26||20||And twenty boards for the second side of the house on the north,
02O||26||21||With their forty silver bases, two under every board.
02O||26||22||And six boards for the back of the House on the west,
02O||26||23||With two boards for the angles of the House at the back.
02O||26||24||The two are to be joined together at the base and at the top to one ring, forming the two angles.
02O||26||25||So there are to be eight boards, with their sixteen silver bases, two bases under every board.
02O||26||26||And make rods of the same wood, five for the boards on the one side,
02O||26||27||And five for the boards on the other side of the House, and five for the west side of the House at the back.
02O||26||28||And the middle rod is to go through the rings of all the boards from end to end.
02O||26||29||And the boards are to be plated with gold, having gold rings for the rods to go through: and the rods are to be plated with gold.
02O||26||30||And you are to make the House from the design which you saw on the mountain.
02O||26||31||And you are to make a veil of the best linen, blue and purple and red, worked with designs of winged ones by a good workman:
02O||26||32||Hanging it by gold hooks from four pillars of wood, plated with gold and fixed in silver bases.
02O||26||33||And you are to put up the veil under the hooks, and put inside it the ark of the law: the veil is to be a division between the holy place and the most holy.
02O||26||34||You are to put the cover on the ark of the law, inside the most holy place.
02O||26||35||And outside the veil you are to put the table, and the support for the lights opposite the table on the south side of the House; and the table is to be on the north side.
02O||26||36||And you are to make a curtain for the doorway of the Tent, of the best linen with needlework of blue and purple and red.
02O||26||37||And make five pillars for the curtain, of hard wood plated with gold; their hooks are to be of gold and their bases of brass
02O||27||1||And make an altar of hard wood, a square altar, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high.
02O||27||2||Put horns at the four angles of it, made of the same, plating it all with brass.
02O||27||3||And make all its vessels, the baskets for taking away the dust of the fire, the spades and basins and meat-hooks and fire-trays, of brass.
02O||27||4||And make a network of brass, with four brass rings at its four angles.
02O||27||5||And put the network under the shelf round the altar so that the net comes half-way up the altar.
02O||27||6||And make rods for the altar, of hard wood, plated with brass.
02O||27||7||And put the rods through the rings at the two opposite sides of the altar, for lifting it.
02O||27||8||The altar is to be hollow, boarded in with wood; make it from the design which you saw on the mountain.
02O||27||9||And let there be an open space round the House, with hangings for its south side of the best linen, a hundred cubits long.
02O||27||10||Their twenty pillars and their twenty bases are to be of brass; the hooks of the pillars and their bands are to be of silver.
02O||27||11||And on the north side in the same way, hangings a hundred cubits long, with twenty pillars of brass on bases of brass; their hooks and their bands are to be of silver.
02O||27||12||And for the open space on the west side, the hangings are to be fifty cubits wide, with ten pillars and ten bases;
02O||27||13||And on the east side the space is to be fifty cubits wide.
02O||27||14||On the one side of the doorway will be hangings fifteen cubits long, with three pillars and three bases;
02O||27||15||And on the other side, hangings fifteen cubits long, with three pillars and three bases.
02O||27||16||And across the doorway, a veil of twenty cubits of the best linen, made of needlework of blue and purple and red, with four pillars and four bases.
02O||27||17||All the pillars round the open space are to have silver bands, with hooks of silver and bases of brass.
02O||27||18||The open space is to be a hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, with sides five cubits high, curtained with the best linen, with bases of brass.
02O||27||19||All the instruments for the work of the House, and all its nails, and the nails of the open space are to be of brass.
02O||27||20||Give orders to the children of Israel to give you clear olive oil for the lights, so that a light may be burning there at all times.
02O||27||21||Let Aaron and his sons put this in order, evening and morning, before the Lord, inside the Tent of meeting, outside the veil which is before the ark; this is to be an order for ever, from generation to generation, to be kept by the children of Israel.
02O||28||1||Now let Aaron your brother, and his sons with him, come near from among the children of Israel, so that they may be my priests, even Aaron, and Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar, his sons.
02O||28||2||And make holy robes for Aaron your brother, so that he may be clothed with glory and honour.
02O||28||3||Give orders to all the wise-hearted workmen, whom I have made full of the spirit of wisdom, to make robes for Aaron, so that he may be made holy as my priest.
02O||28||4||This is what they are to make: a priest's bag, an ephod, and a robe, and a coat of coloured needlework, a head-dress, and a linen band; they are to make holy robes for Aaron your brother and for his sons, so that they may do the work of priests for me.
02O||28||5||They are to take the gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen,
02O||28||6||And make the ephod of gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen, the work of a designer.
02O||28||7||It is to have two bands stitched to it at the top of the arms, joining it together.
02O||28||8||And the beautifully worked band, which goes on it, is to be of the same work and the same material, of gold and blue and purple and red and twisted linen-work.
02O||28||9||You are to take two beryl stones, on which the names of the children of Israel are to be cut:
02O||28||10||Six names on the one stone and six on the other, in the order of their birth.
02O||28||11||With the work of a jeweller, like the cutting of a stamp, the names of the children of Israel are to be cut on them, and they are to be fixed in twisted frames of gold.
02O||28||12||And the two stones are to be placed on the ephod, over the arm-holes, to be stones of memory for the children of Israel: Aaron will have their names on his arms when he goes in before the Lord, to keep the Lord in mind of them.
02O||28||13||And you are to make twisted frames of gold;
02O||28||14||And two chains of the best gold, twisted like cords; and have the chains fixed on to the frames.
02O||28||15||And make a priest's bag for giving decisions, designed like the ephod, made of gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen.
02O||28||16||It is to be square, folded in two, a hand-stretch long and a hand-stretch wide.
02O||28||17||And on it you are to put four lines of jewels; the first line is to be a cornelian, a chrysolite, and an emerald;
02O||28||18||The second, a ruby, a sapphire, and an onyx;
02O||28||19||The third, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
02O||28||20||The fourth, a topaz, a beryl, and a jasper; they are to be fixed in twisted frames of gold.
02O||28||21||The jewels are to be twelve in number, for the names of the children of Israel; every jewel having the name of one of the twelve tribes cut on it as on a stamp.
02O||28||22||And you are to make two chains of gold, twisted like cords, to be fixed to the priest's bag.
02O||28||23||And put two gold rings on the two ends of the bag.
02O||28||24||Put the two gold chains on the two rings at the ends of the bag;
02O||28||25||Joining the other ends of the chains to the gold frames and putting them on the front of the ephod, at the top of the arms.
02O||28||26||Then make two gold rings and put them on the lower ends of the bag, at the edge of it on the inner side nearest to the ephod.
02O||28||27||And make two more gold rings and put them on the front of the ephod at the top of the arms, at the join, over the worked band:
02O||28||28||So that the rings on the bag may be fixed to the rings of the ephod by a blue cord and on to the band of the ephod, so that the bag may not come loose from the ephod.
02O||28||29||And so Aaron will have the names of the children of Israel on the priest's bag over his heart whenever he goes into the holy place, to keep the memory of them before the Lord.
02O||28||30||And in the bag you are to put the Urim and Thummim, so that they may be on Aaron's heart whenever he goes in before the Lord; and Aaron may have the power of making decisions for the children of Israel before the Lord at all times.
02O||28||31||The robe which goes with the ephod is to be made all of blue;
02O||28||32||With a hole at the top, in the middle of it; the hole is to be edged with a band to make it strong like the hole in the coat of a fighting-man, so that it may not be broken open.
02O||28||33||And round the skirts of it put fruits in blue and purple and red, with bells of gold between;
02O||28||34||A gold bell and a fruit in turn all round the skirts of the robe.
02O||28||35||Aaron is to put it on for his holy work; and the sound of it will be clear, when he goes into the holy place before the Lord, and when he comes out, keeping him safe from death.
02O||28||36||You are to make a plate of the best gold, cutting on it, as on a stamp, these words: HOLY TO THE LORD.
02O||28||37||Put a blue cord on it and put it on the front of the twisted head-dress:
02O||28||38||And it will be over Aaron's brow, so that Aaron will be responsible for any error in all the holy offerings made by the children of Israel; it will be on his brow at all times, so that their offerings may be pleasing to the Lord.
02O||28||39||The coat is to be made of the best linen, worked in squares; and you are to make a head-dress of linen, and a linen band worked in needlework.
02O||28||40||And for Aaron's sons you are to make coats, and bands, and head-dresses, so that they may be clothed with glory and honour.
02O||28||41||These you are to put on Aaron, your brother, and on his sons, putting oil on them, separating them and making them holy, to do the work of priests to me.
02O||28||42||And you are to make them linen trousers, covering their bodies from the middle to the knee;
02O||28||43||Aaron and his sons are to put these on whenever they go into the Tent of meeting or come near the altar, when they are doing the work of the holy place, so that they may be free from any sin causing death: this is to be an order for him and his seed after him for ever.
02O||29||1||This is what you are to do to make them holy, to do the work of priests to me: Take one young ox and two male sheep, without any mark on them,
02O||29||2||And unleavened bread, and unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and thin unleavened cakes on which oil has been put, made of the best bread-meal;
02O||29||3||Put these in a basket and take them, with the ox and the two sheep.
02O||29||4||And let Aaron and his sons come to the door of the Tent of meeting, and there let them be washed with water.
02O||29||5||Take the robes, and put the coat and the dress and the ephod and the priest's bag on Aaron; put the band of needlework round him,
02O||29||6||And let the head-dress be placed on his head and the holy crown on the head-dress.
02O||29||7||Then take the oil and put it on his head.
02O||29||8||And take his sons and put their robes on them;
02O||29||9||And put the linen bands round Aaron and his sons, and the head-dresses on them, to make them priests by my order for ever: so you are to make Aaron and his sons holy to me.
02O||29||10||Then let the ox be taken in front of the Tent of meeting: and let Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head.
02O||29||11||And you are to put the ox to death before the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting.
02O||29||12||Then take some of the blood of the ox, and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger, draining out all the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.
02O||29||13||And take all the fat covering the inside of the ox, and the fat joining the liver and the two kidneys with the fat round them, and let them be burned on the altar;
02O||29||14||But the flesh of the ox and its skin and its waste parts are to be burned outside the circle of the tents, for it is a sin-offering.
02O||29||15||Then take one of the sheep, and let Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head.
02O||29||16||Then let it be put to death, so that the sides of the altar are marked with its blood.
02O||29||17||Then the sheep is to be cut up into its parts, and after washing its legs and its inside parts, you are to put them with the parts and the head,
02O||29||18||And let them all be burned on the altar as a burned offering to the Lord: a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
02O||29||19||Then take the other sheep; and after Aaron and his sons have put their hands on its head,
02O||29||20||You are to put the sheep to death, and take some of its blood and put it on the point of Aaron's right ear, and of the right ears of his sons, and on the thumbs of their right hands and the great toes of their right feet, dropping the rest of the blood on the sides of the altar.
02O||29||21||Then take some of the blood on the altar, and the oil, and put it on Aaron and his robes and on his sons and on their robes, so that he and his robes and his sons and their robes may be made holy.
02O||29||22||Then take the fat of the sheep, the fat tail, the fat covering the insides, and the fat joining the liver and the two kidneys with the fat round them, and the right leg; for by the offering of this sheep they are to be marked out as priests:
02O||29||23||And take one bit of bread and one cake of oiled bread and one thin cake out of the basket of unleavened bread which is before the Lord:
02O||29||24||And put them all on the hands of Aaron and of his sons, to be waved for a wave offering before the Lord.
02O||29||25||Then take them from their hands, and let them be burned on the burned offering on the altar, a sweet smell before the Lord, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
02O||29||26||Then take the breast of Aaron's sheep, waving it before the Lord; and it is to be your part of the offering.
02O||29||27||So you are to make holy the breast of the sheep which is waved and the leg which is lifted up on high, that is, of the sheep which is offered for Aaron and his sons;
02O||29||28||And it will be their part as a right for ever from the children of Israel, it is a special offering from the children of Israel, made from their peace-offerings, a special offering lifted up to the Lord.
02O||29||29||And Aaron's holy robes will be used by his sons after him; they will put them on when they are made priests.
02O||29||30||For seven days the son who becomes priest in his place will put them on when he comes into the Tent of meeting to do the work of the holy place.
02O||29||31||Then take the sheep of the wave offering and let its flesh be cooked in water in a holy place.
02O||29||32||And let Aaron and his sons make a meal of it, with the bread in the basket, at the door of the Tent of meeting.
02O||29||33||All those things which were used as offerings to take away sin, and to make them holy to be priests, they may have for food: but no one who is not a priest may have them, for they are holy food.
02O||29||34||And if any of the flesh of the offering or of the bread is over till the morning, let it be burned with fire; it is not to be used for food, for it is holy.
02O||29||35||All these things you are to do to Aaron and his sons as I have given you orders: for seven days the work of making them priests is to go on.
02O||29||36||Every day an ox is to be offered as a sin-offering, to take away sins: and by this offering on it, you will make the altar clean from sin; and you are to put oil on it and make it holy.
02O||29||37||For seven days you are to make offerings for the altar and make it holy, so that it may become completely holy, and anything touching it will become holy.
02O||29||38||Now this is the offering which you are to make on the altar: two lambs in their first year, every day regularly.
02O||29||39||One lamb is to be offered in the morning and the other in the evening:
02O||29||40||And with the one lamb, a tenth part of an ephah of the best meal, mixed with a fourth part of a hin of clear oil; and the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering.
02O||29||41||And the other lamb is to be offered in the evening, and with it the same meal offering and drink offering, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
02O||29||42||This is to be a regular burned offering made from generation to generation, at the door of the Tent of meeting before the Lord, where I will come face to face with you and have talk with you.
02O||29||43||There I will come face to face with the children of Israel, and the Tent will be made holy by my glory
02O||29||44||I will make holy the Tent of meeting and the altar: and Aaron and his sons I will make holy, to be my priests
02O||29||45||Among the children of Israel I will make my living-place, and I will be their God.
02O||29||46||And they will see that I am the Lord their God, who took them out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be ever with them: I am the Lord their God.
02O||30||1||And you are to make an altar for the burning of perfume; of hard wood let it be made.
02O||30||2||The altar is to be square, a cubit long and a cubit wide, and two cubits high, and its horns are to be made of the same.
02O||30||3||It is to be plated with the best gold, the top of it and the sides and the horns, with an edging of gold all round it.
02O||30||4||Under the edge on the two opposite sides, you are to make two gold rings, to take the rods for lifting it.
02O||30||5||And make these rods of the same wood, plating them with gold.
02O||30||6||And let it be placed in front of the veil before the ark of the law, before the cover which is over the law, where I will come face to face with you.
02O||30||7||And on this altar sweet spices are to be burned by Aaron every morning when he sees to the lights.
02O||30||8||And every evening, when he puts the lights up in their places, the spices are to be burned, a sweet-smelling smoke going up before the Lord from generation to generation for ever.
02O||30||9||No strange perfume, no burned offering or meal offering, and no drink offering is to be offered on it.
02O||30||10||And once every year Aaron is to make its horns clean: with the blood of the sin-offering he is to make it clean once every year from generation to generation: it is most holy to the Lord.
02O||30||11||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||30||12||When you are taking the number of the children of Israel, let every man who is numbered give to the Lord a price for his life, so that no disease may come on them when they are numbered.
02O||30||13||And this is what they are to give; let every man who is numbered give half a shekel, by the scale of the holy place: (the shekel being valued at twenty gerahs:) this money is an offering to the Lord.
02O||30||14||Everyone who is numbered, from twenty years old and over, is to give an offering to the Lord.
02O||30||15||The man of wealth is to give no more and the poor man no less than the half-shekel of silver, when the offering is made to the Lord as the price for your lives.
02O||30||16||And you are to take this money from the children of Israel to be used for the work of the Tent of meeting, to keep the memory of the children of Israel before the Lord and to be the price of your lives.
02O||30||17||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||30||18||You are to make a brass washing-vessel, with a brass base; and put it between the Tent of meeting and the altar, with water in it;
02O||30||19||That it may be used by Aaron and his sons for washing their hands and feet;
02O||30||20||Whenever they go into the Tent of meeting they are to be washed with water, to keep them from death; and whenever they come near to do the work of the altar, or to make an offering by fire to the Lord,
02O||30||21||Their hands and feet are to be washed. so that they may be safe from death: this is an order to them for ever; to him and his seed from generation to generation.
02O||30||22||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||30||23||Take the best spices, five hundred shekels' weight of liquid myrrh, and of sweet cinnamon half as much, that is, two hundred and fifty shekels, and two hundred and fifty shekels of sweet calamus,
02O||30||24||And of cassia, five hundred shekels' weight measured by the scale of the holy place, and of olive oil a hin:
02O||30||25||And make these into a holy oil, a perfume made by the art of the perfume-maker; it is to be a holy oil.
02O||30||26||This oil is to be put on the Tent of meeting, and on the ark of the law,
02O||30||27||And on the table and all its vessels, and on the support for the lights, with its vessels, and on the altar for burning spices,
02O||30||28||And on the altar of burned offerings with its vessels, and on the washing-vessel and its base.
02O||30||29||And you are to make them most holy; anything touching them will become holy.
02O||30||30||And put the oil on Aaron and his sons, making them holy to do the work of priests to me.
02O||30||31||And say to the children of Israel, This is to be the Lord's holy oil, from generation to generation.
02O||30||32||It is not to be used for man's flesh, and no other is to be made like it: holy it is, and you are to keep it holy.
02O||30||33||Whoever makes any like it, or puts it on one who is not a priest, will be cut off from his people.
02O||30||34||And the Lord said to Moses, Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, with the best frankincense, in equal weights;
02O||30||35||And make from them a perfume, such as is made by the art of the perfume-maker, mixed with salt, and clean and holy.
02O||30||36||And put some of it, crushed very small, in front of the ark in the Tent of meeting, where I will come face to face with you; it is to be most holy.
02O||30||37||You are not to make any perfume like it for yourselves: it is to be kept holy to the Lord.
02O||30||38||Whoever makes any like it, for its sweet smell, will be cut off from his people.
02O||31||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||31||2||I have made selection of Bezalel, the son of Uri, by name, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah:
02O||31||3||And I have given him the spirit of God and made him wise and full of knowledge and expert in every sort of handwork,
02O||31||4||To do all sorts of delicate work in gold and silver and brass;
02O||31||5||In cutting stones for framing, and to do every form of woodwork.
02O||31||6||And I have made selection of Oholiab with him, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all who are wise I have put the knowledge to make whatever I have given you orders to have made;
02O||31||7||The Tent of meeting, and the ark of the law, and the cover which is on it, and all the things for the tent,
02O||31||8||And the table with its vessels, and the holy light-support with all its vessels, and the altar for the burning of spices,
02O||31||9||And the altar of burned offerings with all its vessels, and the washing-vessel with its base,
02O||31||10||And the robes of needlework, the holy robes for Aaron and for his sons, for their use when acting as priests,
02O||31||11||And the holy oil, and the perfume of sweet spices for the holy place; they will do whatever I have given you orders to have done.
02O||31||12||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||31||13||Say to the children of Israel that they are to keep my Sabbaths; for the Sabbath day is a sign between me and you through all your generations; so that you may see that I am the Lord who makes you holy.
02O||31||14||So you are to keep the Sabbath as a holy day; and anyone not honouring it will certainly be put to death: whoever does any work on that day will be cut off from his people.
02O||31||15||Six days may work be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of complete rest, holy to the Lord; whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.
02O||31||16||And the children of Israel are to keep the Sabbath holy, from generation to generation, by an eternal agreement.
02O||31||17||It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever; because in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he took his rest and had pleasure in it.
02O||31||18||And when his talk with Moses on Mount Sinai was ended, he gave him the two stones of the law, two stones on which was the writing made by the finger of God.
02O||32||1||And when the people saw that Moses was a long time coming down from the mountain, they all came to Aaron and said to him, Come, make us a god to go before us: as for this Moses, who took us up out of the land of Egypt, we have no idea what has become of him.
02O||32||2||Then Aaron said to them, Take off the gold rings which are in the ears of your wives and your sons and your daughters, and give them to me.
02O||32||3||And all the people took the gold rings from their ears and gave them to Aaron.
02O||32||4||And he took the gold from them and, hammering it with an instrument, he made it into the metal image of a young ox: and they said, This is your god, O Israel, who took you out of the land of Egypt.
02O||32||5||And when Aaron saw this, he made an altar before it, and made a public statement, saying, Tomorrow there will be a feast to the Lord.
02O||32||6||So early on the day after they got up and made burned offerings and peace-offerings; and took their seats at the feast, and then gave themselves to pleasure.
02O||32||7||And the Lord said to Moses, Go down quickly; for your people, whom you took out of the land of Egypt, are turned to evil ways;
02O||32||8||Even now they are turned away from the rule I gave them, and have made themselves a metal ox and given worship to it and offerings, saying, This is your god, O Israel, who took you up out of the land of Egypt.
02O||32||9||And the Lord said to Moses, I have been watching this people, and I see that they are a stiff-necked people.
02O||32||10||Now do not get in my way, for my wrath is burning against them; I will send destruction on them, but of you I will make a great nation.
02O||32||11||But Moses made prayer to God, saying, Lord, why is your wrath burning against your people whom you took out of the land of Egypt, with great power and with the strength of your hand?
02O||32||12||Why let the Egyptians say, He took them out to an evil fate, to put them to death on the mountains, cutting them off from the earth? Let your wrath be turned away from them, and send not this evil on your people.
02O||32||13||Have in mind Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you gave your oath, saying, I will make your seed like the stars of heaven in number, and all this land will I give to your seed, as I said, to be their heritage for ever.
02O||32||14||So the Lord let himself be turned from his purpose of sending punishment on his people.
02O||32||15||Then Moses came down the mountain with the two stones of the law in his hand; the stones had writing on their two sides, on the front and on the back.
02O||32||16||The stones were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, cut on the stones.
02O||32||17||Now when the noise and the voices of the people came to the ears of Joshua, he said to Moses, There is a noise of war in the tents.
02O||32||18||And Moses said, It is not the voice of men who are overcoming in the fight, or the cry of those who have been overcome; it is the sound of songs which comes to my ear.
02O||32||19||And when he came near the tents he saw the image of the ox, and the people dancing; and in his wrath Moses let the stones go from his hands, and they were broken at the foot of the mountain.
02O||32||20||And he took the ox which they had made, burning it in the fire and crushing it to powder, and he put it in the water and made the children of Israel take a drink of it.
02O||32||21||And Moses said to Aaron, What did the people do to you that you let this great sin come on them?
02O||32||22||And Aaron said, Let not my lord be angry; you have seen how the purposes of this people are evil.
02O||32||23||For they said to me, Make us a god to go before us: as for this Moses, who took us up out of the land of Egypt, we have no idea what has come to him.
02O||32||24||Then I said to them, Whoever has any gold, let him take it off; so they gave it to me, and I put it in the fire, and this image of an ox came out.
02O||32||25||And Moses saw that the people were out of control, for Aaron had let them loose to their shame before their haters:
02O||32||26||Then Moses took his place at the way into the tents, and said, Whoever is on the Lord's side, let him come to me. And all the sons of Levi came together to him.
02O||32||27||And he said to them, This is the word of the Lord, the God of Israel: Let every man take his sword at his side, and go from one end of the tents to the other, putting to death his brother and his friend and his neighbour.
02O||32||28||And the sons of Levi did as Moses said; and about three thousand of the people were put to death that day.
02O||32||29||And Moses said, You have made yourselves priests to the Lord this day; for every one of you has made the offering of his son and his brother; the blessing of the Lord is on you this day.
02O||32||30||And on the day after, Moses said to the people, Great has been your sin: but I will go up to the Lord, and see if I may get forgiveness for your sin.
02O||32||31||Then Moses went back to the Lord and said, This people has done a great sin, making themselves a god of gold;
02O||32||32||But now, if you will give them forgiveness--but if not, let my name be taken out of your book.
02O||32||33||And the Lord said to Moses, Whoever has done evil against me will be taken out of my book.
02O||32||34||But now, go, take the people into that place of which I have given you word; see, my angel will go before you: but when the time of my judging has come, I will send punishment on them for their sin.
02O||32||35||And the Lord sent punishment on the people because they gave worship to the ox which Aaron made.
02O||33||1||And the Lord said to Moses, Go forward from this place, you and the people whom you have taken up out of the land of Egypt, to that land about which I made an oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, To your seed will I give it.
02O||33||2||And I will send an angel before you, driving out the Canaanite and the Amorite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite:
02O||33||3||Go up to that land flowing with milk and honey; but I will not go up among you, for you are a stiff-necked people, for fear that I send destruction on you while you are on the way.
02O||33||4||Hearing this bad news the people were full of grief, and no one put on his ornaments.
02O||33||5||And the Lord said to Moses, Say to the children of Israel, You are a stiff-necked people: if I come among you, even for a minute, I will send destruction on you; so take off all your ornaments, so that I may see what to do with you.
02O||33||6||So the children of Israel took off their ornaments at Mount Horeb, and did not put them on again.
02O||33||7||Now it was Moses' way to put up the Tent of meeting outside the tent-circle, at some distance away; giving it the name of The Tent of meeting. And everyone desiring to make his prayer to the Lord went to the Tent of meeting outside the tent-circle.
02O||33||8||And whenever Moses went out to the Tent of meeting, all the people got up and everyone went to the door of his tent, looking after Moses till he went inside the Tent.
02O||33||9||And whenever Moses went into the Tent, the pillar of cloud came down, and took its place by the door of the Tent, as long as the Lord was talking with Moses.
02O||33||10||And all the people saw the cloud at the door of the Tent, and they went down on their faces, everyone at the door of his tent.
02O||33||11||And the Lord had talk with Moses face to face, as a man may have talk with his friend. And when Moses came back to the tents, his servant, the young man Joshua, the son of Nun, did not come away from the Tent.
02O||33||12||And Moses said to the Lord, See, you say to me, Be this people's guide on their journey, but you have not made clear to me whom you will send with me. But you have said, I have knowledge of you by name, and you have grace in my eyes.
02O||33||13||If then I have grace in your eyes, let me see your ways, so that I may have knowledge of you and be certain of your grace; and my prayer is that you will keep in mind that this nation is your people.
02O||33||14||And he said, I myself will go with you and give you rest.
02O||33||15||And Moses said, If you yourself are not going with us, do not send us on from here.
02O||33||16||For is not the fact of your going with us the sign that I and this people have grace in your eyes, so that we, that is, I and your people, are separate from all other people on the face of the earth?
02O||33||17||And the Lord said to Moses, I will do as you say: for you have grace in my eyes, and I have knowledge of you by your name.
02O||33||18||And Moses said, O Lord, let me see your glory.
02O||33||19||And he said, I will make all the light of my being come before you, and will make clear to you what I am; I will be kind to those to whom I will be kind, and have mercy on those on whom I will have mercy.
02O||33||20||But it is not possible for you to see my face, for no man may see me and still go on living.
02O||33||21||And the Lord said, See, there is a place near me, and you may take your place on the rock:
02O||33||22||And when my glory goes by, I will put you in a hole in the rock, covering you with my hand till I have gone past:
02O||33||23||Then I will take away my hand, and you will see my back: but my face is not to be seen.
02O||34||1||And the Lord said to Moses, Make two other stones like the first two; and I will put on them the words which were on the first stones, which were broken by you.
02O||34||2||And be ready by the morning, and come up on Mount Sinai, and come before me there in the morning, on the top of the mountain.
02O||34||3||No one is to come up with you, and let no man be seen anywhere on the mountain; let no flocks or herds come near to get their food at its foot.
02O||34||4||So Moses got two stones cut like the first; and early in the morning he went up Mount Sinai, as the Lord had said, with the two stones in his hand.
02O||34||5||And the Lord came down in the cloud and took his place by the side of Moses, and Moses gave worship to the name of the Lord.
02O||34||6||And the Lord went past before his eyes, saying, The Lord, the Lord, a God full of pity and grace, slow to wrath and great in mercy and faith;
02O||34||7||Having mercy on thousands, overlooking evil and wrongdoing and sin; he will not let wrongdoers go free, but will send punishment on children for the sins of their fathers, and on their children's children to the third and fourth generation.
02O||34||8||Then Moses quickly went down on his face in worship.
02O||34||9||And he said, If now I have grace in your eyes, let the Lord go among us, for this is a stiff-necked people, and give us forgiveness for our wrongdoing and our sin, and take us for your heritage.
02O||34||10||And the Lord said, See, this is what I will undertake: before the eyes of your people I will do wonders, such as have not been done in all the earth or in any nation: and all your people will see the work of the Lord, for what I am about to do for you is greatly to be feared.
02O||34||11||Take care to do the orders which I give you today; I will send out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.
02O||34||12||But take care, and do not make any agreement with the people of the land where you are going, for it will be a cause of sin to you.
02O||34||13||But their altars are to be overturned and their pillars broken and their images cut down:
02O||34||14||For you are to be worshippers of no other god: for the Lord is a God who will not give his honour to another.
02O||34||15||So see that you make no agreement with the people of the land, and do not go after their gods, or take part in their offerings, or be guests at their feasts,
02O||34||16||Or take their daughters for your sons; for when their daughters give worship before their gods, they will make your sons take part with them.
02O||34||17||Make for yourselves no gods of metal.
02O||34||18||Keep the feast of unleavened bread; for seven days your food is to be bread without leaven, as I gave you orders, at the regular time in the month Abib; for in that month you came out of Egypt.
02O||34||19||Every first male child is mine; the first male birth of your cattle, the first male of every ox and sheep.
02O||34||20||A lamb may be given in payment for the young of an ass, but if you will not make payment for it, its neck will have to be broken. For all the first of your sons you are to make payment. No one is to come before me without an offering.
02O||34||21||Six days let work be done, but on the seventh day take your rest: at ploughing time and at the grain-cutting you are to have a day for rest.
02O||34||22||And you are to keep the feast of weeks when you get in the first-fruits of the grain, and the feast at the turn of the year when you take in the produce of your fields.
02O||34||23||Three times in the year let all your males come before the Lord, the God of Israel.
02O||34||24||For I will send out the nations before you and make wide the limits of your land; and no man will make an attempt to take your land while you go up to give worship to the Lord, three times in the year.
02O||34||25||No leaven is to be offered with the blood of my offering, and the offering of the Passover feast may not be kept till the morning.
02O||34||26||Take the first-fruits of your land as an offering to the house of the Lord your God. Let not the young goat be cooked in its mother's milk
02O||34||27||And the Lord said to Moses, Put all these words in writing; for on them is based the agreement which I will make with you.
02O||34||28||And for forty days and forty nights Moses was there with the Lord, and in that time he had no food or drink. And he put in writing on the stones the words of the agreement, the ten rules of the law.
02O||34||29||Now when Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two stones in his hand, he was not conscious that his face was shining because of his talk with God.
02O||34||30||But when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, and the shining of his face, they would not come near him for fear.
02O||34||31||Then Moses sent for them; and Aaron, with the chiefs of the people, came to him; and Moses had talk with them.
02O||34||32||And later, all the children of Israel came near, and he gave them all the orders which the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.
02O||34||33||And at the end of his talk with them, Moses put a veil over his face.
02O||34||34||But whenever Moses went in before the Lord to have talk with him, he took off the veil till he came out. And whenever he came out he said to the children of Israel what he had been ordered to say;
02O||34||35||And the children of Israel saw that the face of Moses was shining: so Moses put the veil over his face again till he went to the Lord.
02O||35||1||And Moses sent for all the children of Israel to come together, and said to them, This is what the Lord has said and these are his orders.
02O||35||2||Six days let work be done, but the seventh day is to be a holy day to you, a Sabbath of rest to the Lord; whoever does any work on that day is to be put to death.
02O||35||3||No fire is to be lighted in any of your houses on the Sabbath day.
02O||35||4||And Moses said to all the meeting of the children of Israel, This is the order which the Lord has given:
02O||35||5||Take from among you an offering to the Lord; everyone who has the impulse in his heart, let him give his offering to the Lord; gold and silver and brass;
02O||35||6||And blue and purple and red and the best linen and goats' hair,
02O||35||7||And sheepskins coloured red, and leather, and hard wood,
02O||35||8||And oil for the lights, and spices for the holy oil and for the sweet perfumes for burning.
02O||35||9||And beryls and jewels to be cut for the ephod and for the priest's bag.
02O||35||10||And let every wise-hearted man among you come and make whatever has been ordered by the Lord;
02O||35||11||The House and its tent and its cover, its hooks and its boards, its rods and its pillars and its bases;
02O||35||12||The ark with its cover and its rods and the veil hanging before it;
02O||35||13||The table and its rods and all its vessels, and the holy bread;
02O||35||14||And the support for the lights, with its vessels and its lights and the oil for the light;
02O||35||15||And the altar for burning spices, with its rods, and the holy oil and the sweet perfume, and the curtain for the door, at the door of the House;
02O||35||16||The altar of burned offerings, with its network of brass, its rods, and all its vessels, the washing-vessel and its base;
02O||35||17||The hangings for the open space, its pillars and their bases, and the curtain for the doorway;
02O||35||18||The nails for the House, and the nails for the open space and their cords;
02O||35||19||The robes of needlework for the work of the holy place, the holy robes for Aaron the priest, and the robes for his sons when acting as priests.
02O||35||20||And all the children of Israel went away from Moses.
02O||35||21||And everyone whose heart was moved, everyone who was guided by the impulse of his spirit, came with his offering for the Lord, for whatever was needed for the Tent of meeting and its work and for the holy robes.
02O||35||22||They came, men and women, all who were ready to give, and gave pins and nose-rings and finger-rings and neck-ornaments, all of gold; everyone gave an offering of gold to the Lord.
02O||35||23||And everyone who had blue and purple and red and the best linen and goats' hair and sheepskins coloured red and leather, gave them.
02O||35||24||Everyone who had silver and brass gave an offering of them to the Lord; and everyone who had hard wood, such as was needed for the work, gave it.
02O||35||25||And all the women who were expert with their hands, made cloth, and gave the work of their hands, blue and purple and red and the best linen.
02O||35||26||And those women who had the knowledge, made the goats' hair into cloth.
02O||35||27||And the rulers gave the beryls and the cut jewels for the ephod and the priest's bag;
02O||35||28||And the spice and the oil for the light, and the holy oil and the sweet perfumes.
02O||35||29||The children of Israel, every man and woman, from the impulse of their hearts, gave their offerings freely to the Lord for the work which the Lord had given Moses orders to have done.
02O||35||30||And Moses said to the children of Israel, See, the Lord has made selection of Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;
02O||35||31||And he has made him full of the spirit of God, in all wisdom and knowledge and art of every sort;
02O||35||32||As an expert designer of beautiful things, working in gold and silver and brass;
02O||35||33||Trained in the cutting of stones and the ornamenting of wood and in every sort of handwork.
02O||35||34||And he has given to him, and to Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, the power of training others.
02O||35||35||To them he has given knowledge of all the arts of the handworker, of the designer, and the expert workman; of the maker of needlework in blue and purple and red and the best linen, and of the maker of cloth; in all the arts of the designer and the trained workman they are expert.
02O||36||1||So let Bezalel and Oholiab get to work, with every wise-hearted man to whom the Lord has given wisdom and knowledge, to do whatever is necessary for the ordering of the holy place, as the Lord has given orders.
02O||36||2||Then Moses sent for Bezalel and Oholiab, and for all the wise-hearted men to whom the Lord had given wisdom, even everyone who was moved by the impulse of his heart to come and take part in the work:
02O||36||3||And they took from Moses all the offerings which the children of Israel had given for the building of the holy place. And still they went on giving him more free offerings every morning.
02O||36||4||Then the wise men, who were doing all the work of the holy place, came from their work;
02O||36||5||And said to Moses, The people are giving much more than is needed for the work which the Lord has given us orders to do.
02O||36||6||So Moses made an order and had it given out through all the tents, saying, Let no man or woman make any more offerings for the holy place. So the people were kept from giving more.
02O||36||7||For the material they had was enough and more than enough for all the work which had to be done.
02O||36||8||Then all the expert workmen among them made the House with its ten curtains; of the best linen, blue and purple and red, they made them, with winged ones worked by expert designers.
02O||36||9||Every curtain was twenty-eight cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.
02O||36||10||And five curtains were joined together, and the other five curtains were joined together.
02O||36||11||And they put twists of blue cord on the edge of the outside curtain of the first group, and in the same way on the outside curtain of the second group.
02O||36||12||Fifty twists on the one curtain and fifty on the edge of the curtain of the other group; the twists being opposite to one another.
02O||36||13||And they made fifty hooks of gold, joining the curtains one to another with the hooks; and so the House was made.
02O||36||14||And they made curtains of goats' hair for the tent; eleven curtains were made.
02O||36||15||Every curtain was thirty cubits long and four cubits wide, all of the same measure.
02O||36||16||Five curtains were joined together to make one group, and six curtains were joined together to make the other group.
02O||36||17||And they put fifty twists of cord on the edge of the outside curtain of the first group, and fifty twists on the edge of the outside curtain of the second group,
02O||36||18||And fifty hooks of brass for joining them together to make the tent.
02O||36||19||And they made a cover of sheepskins coloured red, to go over the tent, and a cover of leather over that.
02O||36||20||And for the uprights of the House they made boards of hard wood.
02O||36||21||The boards were ten cubits long and one cubit and a half wide.
02O||36||22||Every board had two tongues fixed into it; all the boards were made in this way.
02O||36||23||They made twenty boards for the south side of the House:
02O||36||24||And for these twenty boards, forty silver bases, two bases under every board, to take its tongues.
02O||36||25||And for the second side of the House, on the north, they made twenty boards,
02O||36||26||With their forty silver bases, two bases for every board.
02O||36||27||And for the west side of the House, at the back, they made six boards,
02O||36||28||And two boards for the angles at the back.
02O||36||29||These were joined together at the base and at the top to one ring, so forming the two angles.
02O||36||30||So there were eight boards with sixteen bases of silver, two bases under every board.
02O||36||31||And they made rods of hard wood; five for the boards on one side of the House,
02O||36||32||And five for the boards on the other side of the House, and five for the boards at the back, on the west.
02O||36||33||The middle rod was made to go right through the rings of all the boards from one end to the other.
02O||36||34||All the boards were plated with gold, and the rings through which the rods went were of gold, and the rods were plated with gold.
02O||36||35||And he made the veil of the best linen, blue and purple and red, worked with winged ones designed by expert workmen.
02O||36||36||And they made four pillars for it of hard wood plated with gold: they had hooks of gold and four silver bases.
02O||36||37||And they made a curtain for the door of the tent, of the best linen with needlework of blue and purple and red;
02O||36||38||And five pillars for the curtain, with their hooks; the heads of the pillars were of gold and they were circled with bands of gold; and their five bases were of brass.
02O||37||1||And Bezalel made the ark of hard wood, two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide and a cubit and a half high;
02O||37||2||Plating it inside and out with the best gold, and putting an edge of gold all round it.
02O||37||3||And he made four gold rings for its four angles, two on one side and two on the other,
02O||37||4||And rods of the same wood plated with gold.
02O||37||5||These rods he put in the rings at the sides of the ark, for lifting it.
02O||37||6||And he made the cover all of gold, two and a half cubits long and a cubit and a half wide.
02O||37||7||And he made two winged ones, hammered out of one bit of gold, for the two ends of the cover;
02O||37||8||Placing one at one end and one at the other; the winged ones were part of the cover.
02O||37||9||And their wings were stretched out over the cover; the faces of the winged ones were opposite one another and facing the cover.
02O||37||10||And he made the table of hard wood, two cubits long, a cubit wide and a cubit and a half high;
02O||37||11||Plating it with the best gold and putting a gold edge all round it.
02O||37||12||And he made a frame all round it about as wide as a man's hand, edged with gold all round.
02O||37||13||And he made four gold rings, and put the rings at the angles of its four feet.
02O||37||14||The rings were fixed under the frame to take the rods with which the table was to be lifted.
02O||37||15||The rods for lifting the table he made of hard wood plated with gold.
02O||37||16||And all the table-vessels, the plates and spoons and basins and the cups for liquids, he made of the best gold.
02O||37||17||Then he made the support for the lights, all of the best gold; its base and its pillar were of hammered gold; its cups and buds and flowers were all made out of the same metal:
02O||37||18||It had six branches coming out from its sides, three from one side and three from the other;
02O||37||19||Every branch having three cups made like almond flowers, every cup with a bud and a flower on all the branches;
02O||37||20||And on its pillar, four cups like almond flowers, every one with its bud and its flower;
02O||37||21||And under every two branches a bud, made with the branch, for all six branches of it.
02O||37||22||The buds and the branches were made of the same metal, all together one complete work of the best hammered gold.
02O||37||23||And he made the seven vessels for the lights, and all the necessary instruments for it, of gold.
02O||37||24||A talent of the best gold was used for the making of it and its vessels.
02O||37||25||And he made the altar for the burning of spices, using the same hard wood; it was square, a cubit long and a cubit wide and two cubits high; the horns made of the same.
02O||37||26||The top and the sides and the horns were all plated with the best gold; and he put an edge of gold all round it.
02O||37||27||And he made two gold rings, placing them on the two opposite sides under the edge, to take the rods for lifting it.
02O||37||28||The rods he made of the same hard wood, plating them with gold.
02O||37||29||And he made the holy oil and the perfume of sweet spices for burning, after the art of the perfume-maker.
02O||38||1||The altar of burned offerings he made of hard wood; a square altar, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high,
02O||38||2||And he put horns at its four angles made of the same, plating it all with brass;
02O||38||3||And brass was used for all the vessels of the altar, the baskets and the spades, the basins and the meat-hooks and the fire-trays; all the vessels he made of brass
02O||38||4||And he made a network of brass for the altar, under the frame round it, stretching half-way up;
02O||38||5||And four rings for the four angles of this network, to take the rods.
02O||38||6||The rods he made of hard wood plated with brass.
02O||38||7||He put the rods through the rings at the opposite sides of the altar for lifting it; he made the altar hollow, boarded in with wood.
02O||38||8||And he made the washing-vessel of brass on a brass base, using the polished brass looking-glasses given by the women who did work at the doors of the Tent of meeting.
02O||38||9||To make the open space, he put hangings on the south side, of the best linen, a hundred cubits long:
02O||38||10||Their twenty pillars and their twenty bases were brass; and the hooks of the pillars and their bands were of silver.
02O||38||11||And for the north side. hangings a hundred cubits long, on twenty brass pillars in brass bases, with silver hooks and bands.
02O||38||12||And on the west side, hangings fifty cubits long, on ten pillars in ten bases, with silver bands.
02O||38||13||And on the east side, the open space was fifty cubits long.
02O||38||14||The hangings on one side of the doorway were fifteen cubits long, on three pillars with their three bases;
02O||38||15||And the same on the other side of the doorway; on this side and on that the hangings were fifteen cubits long, on three pillars with their three bases.
02O||38||16||All the hangings were of the best linen.
02O||38||17||And the bases of the pillars were of brass; their hooks and the bands round the tops of them were of silver; all the pillars were ringed with silver.
02O||38||18||And the curtain for the doorway of the open space was of the best linen, with designs of blue and purple and red in needlework; it was twenty cubits long and five cubits high, to go with the hangings round the sides.
02O||38||19||There were four pillars with their bases, all of brass, the hooks being of silver, and their tops and their bands being covered with silver.
02O||38||20||All the nails used for the House and the open space round it were of brass.
02O||38||21||This is the price of the making of the House, even the House of witness, as it was valued by the word of Moses, for the work of the Levites under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.
02O||38||22||Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made everything as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
02O||38||23||And with him was Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; a designer and a trained workman, expert in needlework of blue and purple and red and the best linen.
02O||38||24||The gold used for all the different work done for the holy place, the gold which was given, was twenty-nine talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels in weight, by the scale of the holy place.
02O||38||25||And the silver given by those who were numbered of the people was a hundred talents, and a thousand, seven hundred and seventy-five shekels in weight, by the scale of the holy place.
02O||38||26||A beka, that is, half a shekel by the holy scale, for everyone who was numbered; there were six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty men of twenty years old and over.
02O||38||27||Of this silver, a hundred talents was used for making the bases of the pillars of the holy place and of the veil; a talent for every base.
02O||38||28||And a thousand, seven hundred and seventy-five shekels of silver was used to make the hooks for the pillars, and for plating the tops of the pillars and for making their bands.
02O||38||29||The brass which was given was seventy talents, two thousand four hundred shekels;
02O||38||30||From it he made the bases of the doorway of the Tent of meeting and the brass altar and the network for it and all the vessels for the altar,
02O||38||31||And the bases for the open space all round and for its doorway, and all the nails for the House and for the open space.
02O||39||1||And from the needlework of blue and purple and red they made the robes used for the work of the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
02O||39||2||The ephod he made of gold and blue and purple and red and the best linen;
02O||39||3||Hammering the gold into thin plates and cutting it into wires to be worked into the blue and the purple and the red and the linen by the designer.
02O||39||4||And they made two bands for joining its edges together at the top of the arms.
02O||39||5||And the beautifully worked band which went on it was of the same design and the same material, worked in gold and blue and purple and red and twisted linen-work, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
02O||39||6||Then they made the beryl stones, fixed in twisted frames of gold and cut like the cutting of a stamp, with the names of the children of Israel.
02O||39||7||These he put on the ephod, over the arm-holes, to be stones of memory for the children of Israel, as the Lord had said to Moses.
02O||39||8||The priest's bag was designed like the ephod, of the best linen worked with gold and blue and purple and red.
02O||39||9||It was square and folded in two, as long and as wide as the stretch of a man's hand;
02O||39||10||And on it they put four lines of stones: in the first line was a carnelian, a chrysolite, and an emerald;
02O||39||11||In the second, a ruby, a sapphire, and an onyx;
02O||39||12||In the third, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;
02O||39||13||In the fourth, a topaz, a beryl, and a jasper; they were fixed in twisted frames of gold.
02O||39||14||There were twelve stones for the twelve tribes of Israel; on every one the name of one of the tribes of Israel was cut, like the cutting of a stamp.
02O||39||15||And on the bag they put gold chains, twisted like cords.
02O||39||16||And they made two gold frames and two gold rings, the rings being fixed to the ends of the priest's bag;
02O||39||17||And they put the two twisted chains on the two rings at the ends of the priest's bag;
02O||39||18||And the other two ends of the chains were joined to the two frames and fixed to the front of the ephod over the arm-holes.
02O||39||19||And they made two rings of gold and put them on the two lower ends of the bag, on the inner side nearest to the ephod.
02O||39||20||And two other gold rings were put on the front of the ephod, over the arm-holes, at the join, and over the worked band.
02O||39||21||And the rings on the bag were fixed to the rings of the ephod by a blue cord, keeping it in place over the band, so that the bag might not get loose, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
02O||39||22||The robe which went with the ephod was made all of blue;
02O||39||23||With a hole at the top in the middle, like the hole in the coat of a fighting-man, edged with a band to make it strong.
02O||39||24||The skirts of the robe were worked all round with fruits in blue and purple and red made of twisted linen.
02O||39||25||And between the fruits all round the skirt they put gold bells, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
02O||39||26||All round the skirt of the robe were bells and fruits in turn.
02O||39||27||The coats for Aaron and his sons they made of the best linen;
02O||39||28||And the twisted head-dress for Aaron, and beautiful head-dresses of linen, and linen trousers,
02O||39||29||And a linen band worked with a design of blue and purple and red, as the Lord had said to Moses.
02O||39||30||The plate for the holy crown was made of the best gold, and on it were cut these words, HOLY TO THE LORD.
02O||39||31||It was fixed to the head-dress by a blue cord, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
02O||39||32||So all the work on the House of the Tent of meeting was done; as the Lord had given orders to Moses, so the children of Israel did it.
02O||39||33||Then they took the House to Moses, the tent with all the things for it; its hooks, its boards, its rods, its pillars, and its bases;
02O||39||34||The outer cover of sheepskins coloured red, and the cover of leather, and the veil for the doorway;
02O||39||35||The ark of the law, with its rods and its cover;
02O||39||36||The table, with all its vessels and the holy bread;
02O||39||37||The support for the lights, with the vessels for the lights to be put in their places on it, and all its vessels, and the oil for the lights;
02O||39||38||And the gold altar, and the holy oil, and the sweet perfume for burning, and the curtain for the doorway of the tent;
02O||39||39||And the brass altar, with its network of brass, and its rods and all its vessels, and the washing-vessel and its base;
02O||39||40||The hangings for the open space, with the pillars and their bases, and the curtain for the doorway, and the cords and nails, and all the instruments necessary for the work of the House of the Tent of meeting;
02O||39||41||The robes for use in the holy place, and the holy robes for Aaron and his sons when acting as priests.
02O||39||42||The children of Israel did everything as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
02O||39||43||Then Moses, when he saw all their work and saw that they had done everything as the Lord had said, gave them his blessing.
02O||40||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
02O||40||2||On the first day of the first month you are to put up the House of the Tent of meeting.
02O||40||3||And inside it put the ark of the law, hanging the veil before it.
02O||40||4||And put the table inside, placing all the things on it in order; and put in the support for the lights, and let its lights be burning.
02O||40||5||And put the gold altar for burning perfumes in front of the ark of the law, hanging the curtain over the doorway of the House.
02O||40||6||And put the altar of burned offerings before the doorway of the House of the Tent of meeting.
02O||40||7||And let the washing-vessel, with water in it, be put between the Tent of meeting and the altar.
02O||40||8||And put up the hangings forming the open space all round it, with the curtain over its doorway.
02O||40||9||And take the holy oil and put it on the House and everything in it, and make it and everything in it holy:
02O||40||10||And put oil on the altar of burned offering, and make it and all its vessels holy; this altar is to be most holy.
02O||40||11||And put oil on the washing-vessel and its base, and make them holy.
02O||40||12||Then let Aaron and his sons come to the door of the Tent of meeting; and after washing them with water,
02O||40||13||You are to put on Aaron the holy robes; and you are to put oil on him, and make him holy, so that he may be my priest.
02O||40||14||And take his sons with him and put coats on them;
02O||40||15||And put oil on them as you did on their father, so that they may be my priests: the putting on of oil will make them priests for ever, from generation to generation.
02O||40||16||And Moses did this; as the Lord gave him orders, so he did.
02O||40||17||So on the first day of the first month in the second year the House was put up.
02O||40||18||Moses put up the House; placing its bases in position and lifting up its uprights, putting in the rods and planting the pillars in their places;
02O||40||19||Stretching the outer tent over it, and covering it, as the Lord had given him orders.
02O||40||20||And he took the law and put it inside the ark, and put the rods at its side and the cover over it;
02O||40||21||And he took the ark into the House, hanging up the veil before it as the Lord had given him orders.
02O||40||22||And he put the table in the Tent of meeting, on the north side outside the veil.
02O||40||23||And he put the bread on it in order before the Lord, as the Lord had said.
02O||40||24||The support for the lights he put in the Tent of meeting, opposite the table, on the south side:
02O||40||25||Lighting the lights before the Lord, as the Lord had given him orders.
02O||40||26||And he put the gold altar in the Tent of meeting, in front of the veil:
02O||40||27||Burning sweet perfumes on it, as the Lord had given him orders.
02O||40||28||And he put up the curtain at the doorway of the House.
02O||40||29||And at the door of the House of the Tent of meeting, he put the altar of burned offerings, offering on it the burned offering and the meal offering, as the Lord had given him orders.
02O||40||30||And between the altar and the Tent of meeting he put the vessel with water in it for washing.
02O||40||31||In it the hands and feet of Moses and Aaron and his sons were washed,
02O||40||32||Whenever they went into the Tent of meeting, and when they came near the altar, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
02O||40||33||And he put up the hangings forming the open space round the House and the altar, and put the curtain over the doorway. So Moses made the work complete.
02O||40||34||Then the cloud came down covering the Tent of meeting, and the House was full of the glory of the Lord;
02O||40||35||So that Moses was not able to go into the Tent of meeting, because the cloud was resting on it, and the House was full of the glory of the Lord.
02O||40||36||And whenever the cloud was taken up from the House, the children of Israel went forward on their journey:
02O||40||37||But while the cloud was there, they made no move till it was taken up.
02O||40||38||For the cloud of the Lord was resting on the House by day, and at night there was fire in the cloud, before the eyes of all the people of Israel, and so it was through all their journeys.

Leviticus
03O||1||1||And the voice of the Lord came to Moses out of the Tent of meeting, saying,
03O||1||2||Give these orders to the children of Israel: When anyone of you makes an offering to the Lord, you are to take it from the cattle, from the herd or from the flock.
03O||1||3||If the offering is a burned offering of the herd, let him give a male without a mark: he is to give it at the door of the Tent of meeting so that he may be pleasing to the Lord.
03O||1||4||And he is to put his hand on the head of the burned offering and it will be taken for him, to take away his sin.
03O||1||5||And the ox is to be put to death before the Lord: then Aaron's sons, the priests, are to take the blood and put some of it on and round the altar which is at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||1||6||And the burned offering is to be skinned and cut up into its parts.
03O||1||7||And Aaron's sons, the priests, are to put fire on the altar and put the wood in order on the fire:
03O||1||8||And Aaron's sons, the priests, are to put the parts, the head and the fat, in order on the wood which is on the fire on the altar:
03O||1||9||But its inside parts and its legs are to be washed with water, and it will all be burned on the altar by the priest for a burned offering, an offering made by fire, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||1||10||And if his offering is of the flock, a burned offering of sheep or goats, let him give a male without a mark.
03O||1||11||And he is to put it to death on the north side of the altar before the Lord: and Aaron's sons, the priests, are to put some of the blood on and round the altar.
03O||1||12||And the offering is to be cut into its parts, with its head and its fat; and the priest is to put them in order on the wood which is on the fire on the altar:
03O||1||13||But the inside parts and the legs are to be washed with water; and the priest will make an offering of all of it, burning it on the altar: it is a burned offering, an offering made by fire, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||1||14||And if his offering to the Lord is a burned offering of birds, then he is to make his offering of doves or of young pigeons.
03O||1||15||And the priest is to take it to the altar, and after its head has been twisted off, it is to be burned on the altar, and its blood drained out on the side of the altar:
03O||1||16||And he is to take away its stomach, with its feathers, and put it down by the east side of the altar, where the burned waste is put:
03O||1||17||And let it be broken open at the wings, but not cut in two; and let it be burned on the altar by the priest on the wood which is on the fire; it is a burned offering; an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||2||1||And when anyone makes a meal offering to the Lord, let his offering be of the best meal, with oil on it and perfume:
03O||2||2||And let him take it to Aaron's sons, the priests; and having taken in his hand some of the meal and of the oil, with all the perfume, let him give it to the priest to be burned on the altar, as a sign, an offering made by fire, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||2||3||And the rest of the meal offering will be for Aaron and his sons; it is most holy among the Lord's fire offerings.
03O||2||4||And when you give a meal offering cooked in the oven, let it be of unleavened cakes of the best meal mixed with oil, or thin unleavened cakes covered with oil.
03O||2||5||And if you give a meal offering cooked on a flat plate, let it be of the best meal, unleavened and mixed with oil.
03O||2||6||Let it be broken into bits, and put oil on it; it is a meal offering.
03O||2||7||And if your offering is of meal cooked in fat over the fire, let it be made of the best meal mixed with oil.
03O||2||8||And you are to give the meal offering made of these things to the Lord, and let the priest take it to the altar.
03O||2||9||And he is to take from the meal offering a part, for a sign, burning it on the altar; an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||2||10||And the rest of the meal offering will be for Aaron and his sons; it is most holy among the Lord's fire offerings.
03O||2||11||No meal offering which you give to the Lord is to be made with leaven; no leaven or honey is to be burned as an offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||2||12||You may give them as an offering of first-fruits to the Lord, but they are not to go up as a sweet smell on the altar.
03O||2||13||And every meal offering is to be salted with salt; your meal offering is not to be without the salt of the agreement of your God: with all your offerings give salt.
03O||2||14||And if you give a meal offering of first-fruits to the Lord, give, as your offering of first-fruits, new grain, made dry with fire, crushed new grain.
03O||2||15||And put oil on it and perfume: it is a meal offering.
03O||2||16||And part of the meal of the offering and part of the oil and all the perfume is to be burned for a sign by the priest: it is an offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||3||1||And if his offering is given for a peace-offering; if he gives of the herd, male or female, let him give it without any mark on it, before the Lord.
03O||3||2||And he is to put his hand on the head of his offering and put it to death at the door of the Tent of meeting; and Aaron's sons, the priests, are to put some of the blood on and round the altar.
03O||3||3||And he is to give of the peace-offering, as an offering made by fire to the Lord; the fat covering the inside parts and all the fat on the inside parts,
03O||3||4||And the two kidneys, and the fat on them, which is by the top part of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, he is to take away;
03O||3||5||That it may be burned by Aaron's sons on the altar, on the burned offering which is on the wood on the fire: it is an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||3||6||And if what he gives for a peace-offering to the Lord is of the flock, let him give a male or female, without any mark on it.
03O||3||7||If his offering is a lamb, then let it be placed before the Lord:
03O||3||8||And he is to put his hand on the head of his offering and put it to death before the Tent of meeting; and Aaron's sons are to put some of its blood on and round the altar.
03O||3||9||And of the peace-offering, let him give an offering made by fire to the Lord; the fat of it, all the fat tail, he is to take away near the backbone; and the fat covering the inside parts and all the fat on the inside parts,
03O||3||10||And the two kidneys, with the fat on them, which is by the top part of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, he is to take away;
03O||3||11||That it may be burned by the priest on the altar; it is the food of the offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||3||12||And if his offering is a goat, then let it be placed before the Lord,
03O||3||13||And let him put his hand on the head of it and put it to death before the Tent of meeting; and the sons of Aaron are to put some of its blood on and round the altar.
03O||3||14||And of it let him make his offering, an offering made by fire to the Lord; the fat covering the inside parts and all the fat on the inside parts,
03O||3||15||And the two kidneys, with the fat on them, which is by the top part of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, let him take away;
03O||3||16||That it may be burned by the priest on the altar; it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet smell: all the fat is the Lord's.
03O||3||17||Let it be an order for ever, through all your generations, in all your houses, that you are not to take fat or blood for food.
03O||4||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||4||2||Say to the children of Israel: These are the offerings of anyone who does wrong through error, doing any of the things which by the Lord's order are not to be done:
03O||4||3||If the chief priest by doing wrong becomes a cause of sin to the people, then let him give to the Lord for the sin which he has done, an ox, without any mark, for a sin-offering.
03O||4||4||And he is to take the ox to the door of the Tent of meeting before the Lord; and put his hand on its head and put it to death before the Lord.
03O||4||5||And the chief priest is to take some of its blood and take it to the Tent of meeting;
03O||4||6||And the priest is to put his finger in the blood, shaking drops of it before the Lord seven times, in front of the veil of the holy place.
03O||4||7||And the priest is to put some of the blood on the horns of the altar on which perfume is burned before the Lord in the Tent of meeting, draining out all the rest of the blood of the ox at the base of the altar of burned offering which is at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||4||8||And he is to take away all the fat of the ox of the sin-offering; the fat covering the inside parts and all the fat of the inside parts,
03O||4||9||And the two kidneys, with the fat on them, which is by the top part of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, he is to take away,
03O||4||10||As it is taken from the ox of the peace-offering; and it is to be burned by the priest on the altar of burned offerings.
03O||4||11||And the skin of the ox and all its flesh, with its head and its legs and its inside parts and its waste,
03O||4||12||All the ox, he is to take away outside the circle of the tents into a clean place where the burned waste is put, and there it is to be burned on wood with fire.
03O||4||13||And if all the people of Israel do wrong, without anyone's knowledge; if they have done any of the things which by the Lord's order are not to be done, causing sin to come on them;
03O||4||14||When the sin which they have done comes to light, then let all the people give an ox for a sin-offering, and take it before the Tent of meeting.
03O||4||15||And let the chiefs of the people put their hands on its head before the Lord, and put the ox to death before the Lord.
03O||4||16||And the priest is to take some of its blood to the Tent of meeting;
03O||4||17||And put his finger in the blood, shaking drops of the blood seven times before the Lord in front of the veil.
03O||4||18||And he is to put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before the Lord in the Tent of meeting; and all the rest of the blood is to be drained out at the base of the altar of burned offering at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||4||19||And he is to take off all its fat, burning it on the altar.
03O||4||20||Let him do with the ox as he did with the ox of the sin-offering; and the priest will take away their sin and they will have forgiveness.
03O||4||21||Then let the ox be taken away outside the tent-circle, that it may be burned as the other ox was burned; it is the sin-offering for all the people.
03O||4||22||If a ruler does wrong, and in error does any of the things which, by the order of the Lord his God, are not to be done, causing sin to come on him;
03O||4||23||When the sin which he has done is made clear to him, let him give for his offering a goat, a male without any mark.
03O||4||24||And he is to put his hand on the head of the goat and put it to death in the place where they put to death the burned offering before the Lord: it is a sin-offering.
03O||4||25||And the priest is to take some of the blood of the offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burned offering, draining out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar of burned offering.
03O||4||26||And all the fat of it is to be burned on the altar like the fat of the peace-offering; and the priest will take away his sin and he will have forgiveness.
03O||4||27||And if any one of the common people does wrong in error, doing any of the things which the Lord has given orders are not to be done, causing sin to come on him;
03O||4||28||When the sin which he has done is made clear to him, then he is to give for his offering a goat, a female without any mark, for the sin which he has done.
03O||4||29||And he is to put his hand on the head of the sin-offering and put it to death in the place where they put to death the burned offering.
03O||4||30||And the priest is to take some of the blood with his finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burned offering, and all the rest of its blood is to be drained out at the base of the altar.
03O||4||31||And let all its fat be taken away, as the fat is taken away from the peace-offerings, and let it be burned on the altar by the priest for a sweet smell to the Lord; and the priest will take away his sin and he will have forgiveness.
03O||4||32||And if he gives a lamb as his sin-offering, let it be a female without any mark;
03O||4||33||And he is to put his hand on the head of the offering and put it to death for a sin-offering in the place where they put to death the burned offering.
03O||4||34||And the priest is to take some of the blood of the offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burned offering, and all the rest of the blood is to be drained out at the base of the altar;
03O||4||35||And let him take away all its fat, as the fat is taken away from the lamb of the peace-offerings; and let it be burned by the priest on the altar among the offerings made by fire to the Lord: and the priest will take away his sin and he will have forgiveness.
03O||5||1||And if anyone does wrong by saying nothing when he is put under oath as a witness of something he has seen or had knowledge of, then he will be responsible:
03O||5||2||If anyone becomes unclean through touching unconsciously some unclean thing, such as the dead body of an unclean beast or of unclean cattle or of any unclean animal which goes flat on the earth, he will be responsible:
03O||5||3||Or if he becomes unclean through touching unconsciously any unclean thing of man, whatever it may be, when it is made clear to him he will be responsible:
03O||5||4||Or if anyone, without thought, takes an oath to do evil or to do good, whatever he says without thought, with an oath, having no knowledge of what he is doing; when it becomes clear to him, he will be responsible for any of these things.
03O||5||5||And whoever is responsible for any such sin, let him make a statement openly of his wrongdoing;
03O||5||6||And take to the Lord the offering for the wrong which he has done, a female from the flock, a lamb or a goat, for a sin-offering, and the priest will take away his sin.
03O||5||7||And if he has not money enough for a lamb, then let him give, for his offering to the Lord, two doves or two young pigeons; one for a sin-offering and one for a burned offering.
03O||5||8||And let him take them to the priest, who will first give the sin-offering, twisting off its head from its neck, but not cutting it in two;
03O||5||9||And he is to put drops of the blood of the offering on the side of the altar, and the rest of the blood is to be drained out at the base of the altar; it is a sin-offering.
03O||5||10||And the second is for a burned offering, in agreement with the law; and the priest will take away his sin and he will have forgiveness.
03O||5||11||But if he has not enough money for two doves or two young pigeons, then let him give, for the sin he has done, the tenth part of an ephah of the best meal, for a sin-offering; let him put no oil on it, and no perfume, for it is a sin-offering.
03O||5||12||And let him come to the priest with it, and the priest will take some of it in his hand, to be burned on the altar as a sign, among the offerings of the Lord made by fire: it is a sin-offering.
03O||5||13||And the priest will take away his sin and he will have forgiveness: and the rest of the offering will be the priest's, in the same way as the meal offering.
03O||5||14||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||5||15||If anyone is untrue, sinning in error in connection with the holy things of the Lord, let him take his offering to the Lord, a male sheep from the flock, without any mark, of the value fixed by you in silver by shekels, by the scale of the holy place.
03O||5||16||And he is to make payment to the priest for what he has done wrong in relation to the holy thing, together with a fifth part of its value in addition; and the priest will take away his sin by the sheep of his offering, and he will have forgiveness.
03O||5||17||And if anyone does wrong, and does any of the things which the Lord has given orders are not to be done, though he has no knowledge of it, still he is in the wrong and he is responsible.
03O||5||18||Let him come to the priest with a sheep, a male without any mark out of the flock, of the value fixed by you, as an offering for his error; and the priest will take away the sin which he did in error, and he will have forgiveness.
03O||5||19||It is an offering for his error: he is certainly responsible before the Lord.
03O||6||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||6||2||If anyone does wrong, and is untrue to the Lord, acting falsely to his neighbour in connection with something put in his care, or something given for a debt, or has taken away anything by force, or has been cruel to his neighbour,
03O||6||3||Or has taken a false oath about the loss of something which he has come across by chance; if a man has done any of these evil things,
03O||6||4||Causing sin to come on him, then he will have to give back the thing he took by force or got by cruel acts, or the goods which were put in his care or the thing he came on by chance,
03O||6||5||Or anything about which he took a false oath; he will have to give it all back, with the addition of a fifth of its value, to him whose property it is, when he has been judged to be in the wrong.
03O||6||6||Then let him take to the Lord the offering for his wrongdoing; giving to the priest for his offering, a male sheep from the flock, without any mark, of the value fixed by you:
03O||6||7||And the priest will take away his sin from before the Lord, and he will have forgiveness for whatever crime he has done
03O||6||8||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||6||9||Give orders to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law for the burned offering: the offering is to be on the fire-wood on the altar all night till the morning; and the fire of the altar is to be kept burning.
03O||6||10||And the priest is to put on his linen robes and his linen trousers, and take up what is over of the offering after it has been burned on the altar, and put it by the side of the altar.
03O||6||11||Then having taken off his linen robes and put on other clothing, he is to take it away into a clean place, outside the tent-circle.
03O||6||12||The fire on the altar is to be kept burning; it is never to go out; every morning the priest is to put wood on it, placing the burned offering in order on it, and there the fat of the peace-offering is to be burned.
03O||6||13||Let the fire be kept burning on the altar at all times; it is never to go out.
03O||6||14||And this is the law for the meal offering: it is to be offered to the Lord before the altar by the sons of Aaron.
03O||6||15||The priest is to take in his hand some of the meal of the meal offering and of the oil of it, and all the perfume on it, burning it on the altar as a sign, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||6||16||And whatever is over Aaron and his sons may have for their food, taking it without leaven in a holy place; in the open space of the Tent of meeting they may take a meal of it.
03O||6||17||It is not to be cooked with leaven. I have given it to them as their part of the offerings made by fire to me; it is most holy, as are the sin-offerings and the offerings for error.
03O||6||18||Every male among the children of Aaron may have it for food; it is their right for ever through all your generations, from the offerings made by fire to the Lord: anyone touching them will be holy.
03O||6||19||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||6||20||This is the offering which Aaron and his sons are to make to the Lord on the day when he is made a priest: the tenth part of an ephah of the best meal for a meal offering for ever; half of it in the morning and half in the evening.
03O||6||21||Let it be made with oil on a flat plate; when it is well mixed and cooked, let it be broken and taken in as a meal offering, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||6||22||And the same offering is to be given by that one of his sons who takes his place as priest; by an order for ever, all of it is to be burned before the Lord.
03O||6||23||Every meal offering offered for the priest is to be completely burned: nothing of it is to be taken for food.
03O||6||24||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||6||25||Say to Aaron and his sons, This is the law for the sin-offering: the sin-offering is to be put to death before the Lord in the same place as the burned offering; it is most holy.
03O||6||26||The priest by whom it is offered for sin, is to take it for his food in a holy place, in the open space of the Tent of meeting.
03O||6||27||Anyone touching the flesh of it will be holy: and if any of the blood is dropped on any clothing, the thing on which the blood has been dropped is to be washed in a holy place.
03O||6||28||But the vessel of earth in which the flesh was cooked is to be broken; or if a brass vessel was used, it is to be rubbed clean and washed out with water.
03O||6||29||Every male among the priests may take it for his food: it is most holy.
03O||6||30||No sin-offering, the blood of which is taken into the Tent of meeting, to take away sin in the holy place, may be used for food: it is to be burned with fire.
03O||7||1||And this is the law of the offering for wrongdoing: it is most holy.
03O||7||2||They are to put to death the offering for wrongdoing in the same place as the burned offering; and the priest is to put the blood on and round the altar.
03O||7||3||And all the fat of it, the fat tail and the fat covering the inside parts, is to be given as an offering.
03O||7||4||And the two kidneys, and the fat on them, which is by the top of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, he is to take away:
03O||7||5||They are to be burned by the priest on the altar for an offering made by fire to the Lord: it is an offering for wrongdoing.
03O||7||6||Every male among the priests may have it as food in a holy place: it is most holy.
03O||7||7||As is the sin-offering, so is the offering for wrongdoing; there is one law for them: the priest who makes the offering to take away sin, he is to have it.
03O||7||8||And the priest offering any man's burned offering for him, may have the skin of the burned offering which is offered by him.
03O||7||9||And every meal offering which is cooked in the oven and everything made in a cooking pot or on a flat plate, is for the priest by whom it is offered.
03O||7||10||And every meal offering, mixed with oil or dry, is for all the sons of Aaron in equal measure.
03O||7||11||And this is the law for the peace-offerings offered to the Lord.
03O||7||12||If any man gives his offering as a praise-offering, then let him give with the offering, unleavened cakes mixed with oil and thin unleavened cakes covered with oil and cakes of the best meal well mixed with oil.
03O||7||13||With his peace-offering let him give cakes of leavened bread, as a praise-offering.
03O||7||14||And let him give one out of every offering to be lifted up before the Lord; that it may be for the priest who puts the blood of the peace-offering on the altar.
03O||7||15||And the flesh of the praise-offering is to be taken as food on the day when it is offered; no part of it may be kept till the morning.
03O||7||16||But if his offering is made because of an oath or given freely, it may be taken as food on the day when it is offered; and the rest may be used up on the day after:
03O||7||17||But if any of the flesh of the offering is still unused on the third day, it is to be burned with fire.
03O||7||18||And if any of the flesh of the peace-offering is taken as food on the third day, it will not be pleasing to God and will not be put to the account of him who gives it; it will be unclean and a cause of sin to him who takes it as food.
03O||7||19||And flesh touched by any unclean thing may not be taken for food: it is to be burned with fire; and as for the flesh of the peace-offerings, everyone who is clean may take it as food:
03O||7||20||But he who is unclean when he takes as food the flesh of the peace-offerings, which are the Lord's, will be cut off from his people.
03O||7||21||And anyone who, after touching any unclean thing of man or an unclean beast or any unclean and disgusting thing, takes as food the flesh of the peace-offerings, which are the Lord's, will be cut off from his people.
03O||7||22||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||7||23||Say to the children of Israel: You are not to take any fat, of ox or sheep or goat, for food.
03O||7||24||And the fat of that which comes to a natural death, and the fat of that which is attacked by beasts, may be used for other purposes, but not in any way for food.
03O||7||25||For anyone who takes as food the fat of any beast of which men make an offering by fire to the Lord, will be cut off from his people.
03O||7||26||And you are not to take for food any blood, of bird or of beast, in any of your houses.
03O||7||27||Whoever takes any blood for food will be cut off from his people.
03O||7||28||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||7||29||Say to the children of Israel: He who makes a peace-offering to the Lord, is to give an offering to the Lord out of his peace-offering:
03O||7||30||He himself is to take to the Lord the offering made by fire, even the fat with the breast, so that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the Lord.
03O||7||31||And the fat is to be burned by the priest on the altar, but the breast is for Aaron and his sons.
03O||7||32||And the right leg you are to give to the priest for an offering to be lifted up out of what is given for your peace-offerings.
03O||7||33||That man, among the sons of Aaron, by whom the blood of the peace-offering and the fat are offered, is to have the right leg for his part.
03O||7||34||For the breast which is waved and the right leg which is lifted up on high I have taken from the children of Israel, from their peace-offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons as their right for ever from the children of Israel.
03O||7||35||This is the holy part given to Aaron and to his sons, out of the offerings made to the Lord by fire, on the day when they were made priests before the Lord;
03O||7||36||Which the Lord said the children of Israel were to give them, on the day when he made them his priests. It is their right for ever from generation to generation.
03O||7||37||These are the laws for the burned offering, the meal offering, and the offering for wrongdoing; and for the making of priests, and for the giving of peace-offerings;
03O||7||38||As they were given by the Lord to Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day when the Lord gave orders to the children of Israel to make their offerings to the Lord, in the waste land of Sinai.
03O||8||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||8||2||Take Aaron, and his sons with him, and the robes and the holy oil and the ox of the sin-offering and the two male sheep and the basket of unleavened bread;
03O||8||3||And let all the people come together at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||8||4||And Moses did as the Lord said, and all the people came together at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||8||5||And Moses said to the people, This is what the Lord has given orders to be done.
03O||8||6||Then Moses took Aaron and his sons; and after washing them with water,
03O||8||7||He put the coat on him, making it tight with its band, and then the robe, and over it the ephod, with its band of needlework to keep it in place.
03O||8||8||And he put the priest's bag on him, and in the bag he put the Urim and Thummim.
03O||8||9||And on his head he put the head-dress, and in front of the head-dress the plate of gold, the holy crown, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||8||10||And Moses took the holy oil and put it on the House and on all the things in it, to make them holy.
03O||8||11||Seven times he put oil on the altar and on all its vessels, and on the washing-basin and its base, to make them holy.
03O||8||12||And some of the oil he put on Aaron's head, to make him holy.
03O||8||13||Then he took Aaron's sons, clothing them with the coats, and putting the bands round them, and the head-dresses on their heads, as the Lord had given him orders.
03O||8||14||And he took the ox of the sin-offering: and Aaron and his sons put their hands on the head of the ox,
03O||8||15||And he put it to death; and Moses took the blood and put it on the horns of the altar and round it with his finger, and made the altar clean, draining out the blood at the base of the altar; so he made it holy, taking away what was unclean.
03O||8||16||And he took all the fat on the inside parts, and the fat on the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, to be burned on the altar;
03O||8||17||But the ox, with its skin and its flesh and its waste, was burned with fire outside the tent-circle, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||8||18||And he put the male sheep of the burned offering before the Lord, and Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head,
03O||8||19||And he put it to death; and Moses put some of the blood on and round the altar.
03O||8||20||And when the sheep had been cut into parts, the head and the parts and the fat were burned by Moses.
03O||8||21||And the inside parts and the legs were washed with water and all the sheep was burned by Moses on the altar; it was a burned offering for a sweet smell: it was an offering made by fire to the Lord, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||8||22||And he put the other sheep before the Lord, the sheep with which they were made priests; and Aaron and his sons put their hands on the head of the sheep,
03O||8||23||And he put it to death; and Moses took some of the blood and put it on the point of Aaron's right ear and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot.
03O||8||24||Then he took Aaron's sons, and Moses put some of the blood on the point of their right ears and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the great toes of their right feet: and Moses put the blood on and round the altar.
03O||8||25||And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and the fat on the inside parts, and the fat on the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and the right leg;
03O||8||26||And out of the basket of unleavened bread which was before the Lord he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of bread with oil on it, and one thin cake, and put them on the fat and on the right leg:
03O||8||27||And he put them all on the hands of Aaron and on the hands of his sons, waving them for a wave offering before the Lord.
03O||8||28||And Moses took them from their hands, and they were burned on the altar on the burned offering, as a priest's offering for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||8||29||And Moses took the breast, waving it for a wave offering before the Lord; it was Moses' part of the sheep of the priest's offering, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||8||30||And Moses took some of the holy oil and of the blood which was on the altar and put it on Aaron and on his robes, and on his sons and on his sons' robes; and made Aaron holy, and his robes and his sons and his sons' robes with him.
03O||8||31||And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, The flesh is to be cooked in water at the door of the Tent of meeting, and there you are to take it as food, together with the bread in the basket, as I have given orders, saying, It is the food of Aaron and his sons.
03O||8||32||And that which is over of the flesh and of the bread is to be burned with fire.
03O||8||33||And you are not to go out from the door of the Tent of meeting for seven days, till the days for making you priest are ended; for this will be the work of seven days.
03O||8||34||What has been done this day, has been ordered by the Lord to take away your sin.
03O||8||35||And you are to keep watch for the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting day and night for seven days, so that death may not come to you: for so he has given me orders.
03O||8||36||And Aaron and his sons did all the things about which the Lord had given orders through Moses.
03O||9||1||And on the eighth day Moses sent for Aaron and his sons and the responsible men of Israel;
03O||9||2||And he said to Aaron, Take a young ox for a sin-offering and a male sheep for a burned offering, without a mark, and make an offering of them before the Lord.
03O||9||3||And say to the children of Israel: Take a he-goat for a sin-offering, and a young ox and a lamb, in their first year, without any mark on them, for a burned offering;
03O||9||4||And an ox and a male sheep for peace-offerings, to be put to death before the Lord; and a meal offering mixed with oil: for this day you are to see the Lord.
03O||9||5||And they took the things ordered by Moses, before the Tent of meeting, and all the people came near, waiting before the Lord.
03O||9||6||And Moses said, This is what the Lord has said you are to do; and you will see the glory of the Lord.
03O||9||7||And Moses said to Aaron, Come near to the altar and make your sin-offering and your burned offering to take away your sin and the sin of the people, and make the people's offering to take away their sin; as the Lord has given orders.
03O||9||8||So Aaron came near to the altar and put to death the ox for the sin-offering for himself;
03O||9||9||And the sons of Aaron gave him the blood and he put his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar, draining out the blood at the base of the altar;
03O||9||10||But the fat and the kidneys and the fat on the liver of the sin-offering were burned by him on the altar as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||9||11||And the flesh and the skin were burned with fire outside the tent-circle;
03O||9||12||And he put to death the burned offering; and Aaron's sons gave him the blood and he put some of it on and round the altar;
03O||9||13||And they gave him the parts of the burned offering, in their order, and the head, to be burned on the altar.
03O||9||14||And the inside parts and the legs, when they had been washed with water, were burned on the burned offering on the altar.
03O||9||15||And he made an offering for the people and took the goat of the sin-offering for the people and put it to death, offering it for sin, in the same way as the first.
03O||9||16||And he took the burned offering, offering it in the ordered way;
03O||9||17||And he put the meal offering before the Lord, and taking some of it in his hand he had it burned on the altar, separately from the burned offering of the morning.
03O||9||18||And he put to death the ox and the sheep, which were the peace-offerings for the people; and Aaron's sons gave him the blood and he put some of it on and round the altar;
03O||9||19||And as for the fat of the ox and the fat tail of the sheep and the fat covering the inside parts and the kidneys and the fat on the liver;
03O||9||20||They put the fat on the breasts, and the fat was burned on the altar.
03O||9||21||And Aaron took the breasts and the right leg, waving them for a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses gave orders.
03O||9||22||And Aaron, lifting up his hands to the people, gave them a blessing; and he came down from offering the sin-offering, and the burned offering, and the peace-offerings.
03O||9||23||And Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of meeting, and came out and gave the people a blessing, and the glory of the Lord was seen by all the people.
03O||9||24||And fire came out from before the Lord, burning up the offering on the altar and the fat: and when all the people saw it, they gave a loud cry, falling down on their faces.
03O||10||1||And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their vessels and put fire in them and perfume, burning strange fire before the Lord, which he had not given them orders to do.
03O||10||2||And fire came out from before the Lord, burning them up and causing their destruction before the Lord.
03O||10||3||Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord said, I will be holy in the eyes of all those who come near to me, and I will be honoured before all the people. And Aaron said nothing.
03O||10||4||And Moses sent for Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel, the brother of Aaron's father, and said to them, Come near and take your brothers away from before the holy place, outside the tent-circle.
03O||10||5||So they came and took them, in their coats, outside the tent-circle, as Moses had said.
03O||10||6||And Moses said to Aaron and to Eleazar and Ithamar, his sons, Do not let your hair be loose, and give no signs of grief; so that death may not overtake you, and his wrath come on all the people; but let there be weeping among your brothers and all the house of Israel for this burning of the Lord's fire.
03O||10||7||And do not go out from the door of the Tent of meeting, or death will come to you; for the holy oil of the Lord is on you. And they did as Moses said.
03O||10||8||And the Lord said to Aaron:
03O||10||9||Take no wine, or strong drink, you or your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of meeting, that it may not be the cause of death to you; this is an order for ever through all your generations.
03O||10||10||And make a division between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean;
03O||10||11||Teaching the children of Israel all the laws which the Lord has given them by the hand of Moses.
03O||10||12||And Moses said to Aaron and to Eleazar and Ithamar, his sons who were still living, Take the rest of the meal offering from the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and take it for your food, without leaven, at the side of the altar, for it is most holy.
03O||10||13||It is to be for your food in a holy place, because it is your right and your sons' right, from the offerings of the Lord made by fire: for so am I ordered.
03O||10||14||And the breast which is waved and the leg which is lifted up on high, you are to take as your food in a clean place; you and your sons and your daughters with you: for they are given to you as your right and your sons' right, from the peace-offerings of the children of Israel.
03O||10||15||Let them take the breast which is waved and the leg which is lifted up on high, with the fat of the burned offering, to be waved for a wave offering before the Lord; and this will be for you and for your sons with you, for a right for ever, as the Lord has given orders.
03O||10||16||And Moses was looking for the goat of the sin-offering, but it was burned; and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron, who were still living, saying,
03O||10||17||Why did you not make a meal of the sin-offering in the holy place? For it is most holy and he has given it to you, so that the sin of the people may be put on it, to take away their sin before the Lord.
03O||10||18||See, its blood was not taken into the holy place: certainly it was right for you to have taken it as food in the holy place, as I gave orders.
03O||10||19||And Aaron said to Moses, You have seen that today they have made their sin-offering and their burned offering before the Lord, and such things as these have come on me. If I had taken the sin-offering as food today, would it have been pleasing to the Lord?
03O||10||20||And after hearing this, Moses was no longer angry.
03O||11||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
03O||11||2||Say to the children of Israel: These are the living things which you may have for food among all the beasts on the earth.
03O||11||3||You may have as food any beast which has a division in the horn of its foot, and whose food comes back into its mouth to be crushed again.
03O||11||4||But, at the same time, of those beasts, you may not take for food the camel, because its food comes back but the horn of its foot is not parted in two; it is unclean to you.
03O||11||5||And the rock-badger, for the same reason, is unclean to you.
03O||11||6||And the hare, because the horn of its foot is not parted in two, is unclean to you.
03O||11||7||And the pig is unclean to you, because though the horn of its foot is parted, its food does not come back.
03O||11||8||Their flesh may not be used for food, and their dead bodies may not even be touched; they are unclean to you.
03O||11||9||These you may have for food of all things living in the water: anything living in the water, in the seas or rivers, which has special parts for swimming and skin formed of thin plates, may be used for food.
03O||11||10||All other things living and moving in the water, in the sea or in the rivers, are a disgusting thing to you;
03O||11||11||They may not be used for food, and their dead bodies are disgusting to you.
03O||11||12||Anything in the water which has no special parts for swimming and no thin plates on its skin is disgusting to you.
03O||11||13||And among birds these are to be disgusting to you, and not to be used for food: the eagle and the gier-eagle and the ospray;
03O||11||14||And the kite and the falcon, and birds of that sort;
03O||11||15||Every raven, and birds of that sort;
03O||11||16||And the ostrich and the night-hawk and the sea-hawk, and birds of that sort;
03O||11||17||And the little owl and the cormorant and the great owl;
03O||11||18||And the water-hen and the pelican and the vulture;
03O||11||19||The stork and the heron, and birds of that sort, and the hoopoe and the bat.
03O||11||20||Every winged four-footed thing which goes on the earth is disgusting to you;
03O||11||21||But of the winged four-footed things, those which have long legs for jumping on the earth you may have for food;
03O||11||22||Such as all the different sorts of locust.
03O||11||23||But all other winged four-footed things which go on the earth are disgusting to you.
03O||11||24||By these you will be made unclean; anyone touching their dead bodies will be unclean till evening:
03O||11||25||Whoever takes away the dead body of one of them is to have his clothing washed, and will be unclean till evening.
03O||11||26||Every beast, in the horn of whose foot there is not a complete division, and whose food does not come back, is unclean to you: anyone touching one of these will be unclean.
03O||11||27||Any four-footed beast which goes on the ball of its foot, is unclean to you: anyone touching the dead body of one of these will be unclean till evening.
03O||11||28||Anyone who takes away the dead body of one of these is to have his clothing washed and be unclean till evening.
03O||11||29||And these are unclean to you among things which go low down on the earth; the weasel and the mouse and the great lizard, and animals of that sort;
03O||11||30||And the ferret and the land crocodile and the lizard and the sand-lizard and the chameleon.
03O||11||31||All these are unclean to you: anyone touching them when they are dead will be unclean till evening.
03O||11||32||The dead body of any of these, falling on anything, will make that thing unclean; if it is any vessel of wood, or clothing, or skin, or bag, whatever it is, if it is used for any purpose, it will have to be put into water, and will be unclean till evening; after that it will be clean.
03O||11||33||And if one of them gets into any vessel of earth, whatever is in the vessel will be unclean and the vessel will have to be broken.
03O||11||34||Any food in it, and anything on which water from it comes, will be unclean: any drink taken from such a vessel will be unclean.
03O||11||35||Any part of the dead body of one of these, falling on anything, will make it unclean; if it is an oven or a cooking-pot it will have to be broken: they are unclean and will be unclean to you.
03O||11||36||But at the same time a fountain or a place where water is stored for use will be clean; but anyone touching their dead bodies will be unclean.
03O||11||37||If any part of the dead body of one of these gets on to any seed for planting, it is clean;
03O||11||38||But if water is put on the seed, and any part of the dead body gets on to it, it will be unclean to you.
03O||11||39||And if any beast which may be used for food comes to a natural death, anyone touching its dead body will be unclean till evening.
03O||11||40||And he who makes use of any part of its body for food is to have his clothing washed and be unclean till evening; and anyone taking away its body is to have his clothing washed and be unclean till evening.
03O||11||41||Everything which goes flat on its body on the earth is disgusting, and is not to be used for food.
03O||11||42||Whatever goes on its stomach or on four feet or has a great number of feet, even all those going flat on the earth, may not be used for food, for they are disgusting.
03O||11||43||You are not to make yourselves disgusting with anything which goes about flat on the earth; you may not make yourselves unclean with them, in such a way that you are not holy to me.
03O||11||44||For I am the Lord your God: for this reason, make and keep yourselves holy, for I am holy; you are not to make yourselves unclean with any sort of thing which goes about flat on the earth.
03O||11||45||For I am the Lord, who took you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God; so be you holy, for I am holy.
03O||11||46||This is the law about beasts and birds and every living thing moving in the waters, and every living thing which goes flat on the earth:
03O||11||47||Marking out the unclean from the clean, and the living thing which may be used for food from that which may not.
03O||12||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||12||2||Say to the children of Israel, If a woman is with child and gives birth to a male child, she will be unclean for seven days, as when she is unwell.
03O||12||3||And on the eighth day let him be given circumcision.
03O||12||4||And she will be unclean for thirty-three days till the flow of her blood is stopped; no holy thing may be touched by her, and she may not come into the holy place, till the days for making her clean are ended.
03O||12||5||But if she gives birth to a female child, then she will be unclean for two weeks, as when she is unwell; and she will not be completely clean for sixty-six days.
03O||12||6||And when the days are ended for making her clean for a son or a daughter, let her take to the priest at the door of the Tent of meeting, a lamb of the first year for a burned offering and a young pigeon or a dove for a sin-offering:
03O||12||7||And the priest is to make an offering of it before the Lord and take away her sin, and she will be made clean from the flow of her blood. This is the law for a woman who gives birth to a male or a female.
03O||12||8||And if she has not money enough for a lamb, then let her take two doves or two young pigeons, one for a burned offering and the other for a sin-offering, and the priest will take away her sin and she will be clean,
03O||13||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
03O||13||2||If a man has on his skin a growth or a mark or a white place, and it becomes the disease of a leper, let him be taken to Aaron the priest, or to one of the priests, his sons;
03O||13||3||And if, when the priest sees the mark on his skin, the hair on the place is turned white and the mark seems to go deeper than the skin, it is the mark of a leper: and the priest, after looking at him, will say that he is unclean.
03O||13||4||But if the mark on his skin is white, and does not seem to go deeper than the skin, and the hair on it is not turned white, then the priest will keep him shut up for seven days;
03O||13||5||And the priest is to see him on the seventh day; and if, in his opinion, the place on his skin has not become worse and is not increased in size, then the priest will keep him shut up for seven days more:
03O||13||6||And the priest is to see him again on the seventh day; and if the mark is less bright and is not increased on his skin, then let the priest say that he is clean: it is only a skin-mark, and after his clothing has been washed he will be clean.
03O||13||7||But if the size of the mark on his skin is increased after he has been seen by the priest, let him go to the priest again:
03O||13||8||And if, after looking at him, he sees that the mark is increased in his skin, let the priest say that he is unclean; he is a leper.
03O||13||9||When the disease of a leper is seen on a man, let him be taken to the priest;
03O||13||10||And if the priest sees that there is a white growth on the skin, and the hair is turned white, and there is diseased flesh in the growth,
03O||13||11||It is an old disease in the skin of his flesh, and the priest will say that he is unclean; he will not have to be shut up, for he is clearly unclean.
03O||13||12||And if the disease comes out all over his skin, from his head to his feet, as far as the priest is able to see,
03O||13||13||And if the priest sees that all his flesh is covered with the leper's disease, the priest will say that he is clean: it is all turned white, he is clean.
03O||13||14||But whenever diseased flesh is seen on him, he will be unclean.
03O||13||15||And when the priest sees the diseased flesh he will say that he is unclean; the diseased flesh is unclean, he is a leper.
03O||13||16||Or if the diseased flesh is turned again and changed to white then he is to come to the priest,
03O||13||17||And the priest will see him: and if the place is turned white, then the priest will say that he is free from the disease.
03O||13||18||And if a bad place has come out on the skin and is well again,
03O||13||19||And on the same place there is a white growth of a bright mark, red and white, then let the priest see it;
03O||13||20||And after looking at it, if it seems to go deeper than the skin, and the hair on it is turned white, then the priest will say that the man is unclean: it is the leper's disease, it has come out in the bad place.
03O||13||21||But if, after looking at it, he sees that there are no white hairs on it, and it is not deeper than the skin, and it is not very bright, then let the priest keep him shut up for seven days:
03O||13||22||And if it is increasing on the skin, the priest will say that he is unclean: it is a disease.
03O||13||23||But if the bright mark keeps in the same place and gets no greater, it is the mark of the old wound, and the priest will say that he is clean.
03O||13||24||Or if there is a burn on the skin of the flesh, and if the diseased flesh in the burn becomes a bright place, red and white or white,
03O||13||25||The priest is to see it: and if the hair on the bright place is turned white and it seems to go deeper than the skin, he is a leper: it has come out in the burn, and the priest will say that he is unclean: it is the leper's disease.
03O||13||26||But if, after looking at it, the priest sees that there is no white hair on the bright place, and it is not deeper than the skin, and is not very bright, then let the priest keep him shut up for seven days:
03O||13||27||And the priest is to see him again on the seventh day; if it is increased in the skin, then the priest will say that he is unclean: it is the leper's disease.
03O||13||28||And if the bright place keeps the same size and gets no greater on the skin, but is less bright, it is the effect of the burn, and the priest will say that he is clean: it is the mark of the burn.
03O||13||29||And when a man or a woman has a disease on the head, or in the hair of the chin,
03O||13||30||Then the priest is to see the diseased place: and if it seems to go deeper than the skin, and if there is thin yellow hair in it, then the priest will say that he is unclean: he has the mark of the leper's disease on his head or in the hair of his chin.
03O||13||31||And after looking at the diseased place, if it does not seem to go deeper than the skin, and there is no black hair in it, then the priest will have him shut up for seven days:
03O||13||32||And on the seventh day the priest will see the place: and if it is not increased, and there is no yellow hair in it, and it does not seem to go deeper than the skin,
03O||13||33||Then his hair is to be cut off, but not on the diseased place, and he is to be shut up for seven days more:
03O||13||34||And on the seventh day the priest will see the place: and if it is not increased, and does not seem to go deeper than the skin, the priest will say that he is clean: and after his clothing has been washed he will be clean.
03O||13||35||But if the disease in his skin becomes worse after he has been made clean,
03O||13||36||Then the priest is to see him: and if the mark is increased, the priest, without looking for the yellow hair, will say that he is unclean.
03O||13||37||But if, in his opinion, the growth is stopped, and black hair has come up on it, the disease has gone; he is clean and the priest will say that he is clean.
03O||13||38||And if a man or a woman has bright marks on the skin of their flesh, that is, bright white marks,
03O||13||39||Then the priest is to see them: and if the white marks on their skin are not very bright, it is a skin disease which has come out on the skin; he is clean.
03O||13||40||And if a man's hair has come out and he has no hair, still he is clean.
03O||13||41||And if the hair has gone from the front part of his head, so that he has no hair there, still he is clean.
03O||13||42||But if, on his head or on his brow, where he has no hair, there is a red and white place, it is the disease of the leper coming out on his head or on his brow.
03O||13||43||Then if the priest sees that the growth of the disease has become red and white on his head or on his brow where there is no hair, like the mark in the skin of a leper;
03O||13||44||He is a leper and unclean; the priest is to say that he is most certainly unclean: the disease is in his head.
03O||13||45||And the leper who has the disease on him is to go about with signs of grief, with his hair loose and his mouth covered, crying, Unclean, unclean.
03O||13||46||While the disease is on him, he will be unclean. He is unclean: let him keep by himself, living outside the tent-circle.
03O||13||47||And any clothing of wool or of linen in which is the mark of the disease;
03O||13||48||If it is in the threads of the linen or of the wool, or in leather, or in anything made of skin;
03O||13||49||If there are red or green marks on the clothing, or on the leather, or in the threads of the cloth, or in anything made of skin, it is the leper's disease: let the priest see it.
03O||13||50||And after it has been seen by the priest, the thing which is so marked is to be shut up for seven days:
03O||13||51||And he is to see the mark on the seventh day; if the mark is increased in the clothing, or in the threads of the material, or in the leather, whatever the leather is used for, it is the disease biting into it: it is unclean.
03O||13||52||And the clothing, or the wool or linen material, or anything of leather in which is the disease, is to be burned: for the disease is biting into it; let it be burned in the fire.
03O||13||53||And if the priest sees that the mark is not increased in the clothing or in any part of the material or in the leather,
03O||13||54||Then the priest will give orders for the thing on which the mark is, to be washed, and to be shut up for seven days more:
03O||13||55||And if, after the mark has been washed, the priest sees that the colour of it is not changed and it is not increased, it is to be burned in the fire: the disease is working in it, though the damage may be inside or outside.
03O||13||56||And if the priest sees that the mark is less bright after the washing, then let him have it cut out of the clothing or the leather or from the threads of the material:
03O||13||57||And if the mark is still seen in the clothing or in the threads of the material or in the leather, it is the disease coming out: the thing in which the disease is will have to be burned with fire.
03O||13||58||And the material of the clothing, or anything of skin, which has been washed, if the mark has gone out of it, let it be washed a second time and it will be clean.
03O||13||59||This is the law about the leper's disease in the thread of wool or linen material, in clothing or in anything of skin, saying how it is to be judged clean or unclean.
03O||14||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||14||2||This is the law of the leper on the day when he is made clean: he is to be taken to the priest;
03O||14||3||And the priest is to go outside the tent-circle; and if, after looking, the priest sees that the mark of the disease has gone from him,
03O||14||4||Then the priest is to give orders to take, for him who is to be made clean, two living clean birds and some cedar wood and red thread and hyssop.
03O||14||5||And the priest will give orders for one of the birds to be put to death in a vessel made of earth, over flowing water.
03O||14||6||And he will take the living bird and the wood and the red thread and the hyssop and put them in the blood of the bird which was put to death over flowing water.
03O||14||7||And shaking it seven times over the man who is to be made clean, he will say that he is clean and will let the living bird go free into the open country.
03O||14||8||And he who is to be made clean will have his clothing washed and his hair cut and have a bath, and he will be clean. And after that he will come back to the tent-circle; but he is to keep outside his tent for seven days.
03O||14||9||And on the seventh day he is to have all the hair cut off his head and his chin and over his eyes--all his hair is to be cut off--and he will have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and he will be clean.
03O||14||10||And on the eighth day let him take two male lambs, without any marks on them, and one female lamb of the first year, without a mark, and three tenth parts of an ephah of the best meal, mixed with oil, and one log of oil.
03O||14||11||And the priest who is making him clean will put the man who is being made clean, together with these things, before the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||14||12||And the priest is to take one of the male lambs and give it as an offering for wrongdoing, and the log of oil, waving them for a wave offering before the Lord;
03O||14||13||And he is to put the male lamb to death in the place where they put to death the sin-offering and the burned offering, in the holy place; for as the sin-offering is the property of the priest, so is the offering for wrongdoing: it is most holy.
03O||14||14||And let the priest take some of the blood of the offering for wrongdoing and put it on the point of the right ear of him who is to be made clean, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot;
03O||14||15||And take some of the oil and put it in the hollow of his left hand;
03O||14||16||And let the priest put his right finger in the oil which is in his left hand, shaking it out with his finger seven times before the Lord;
03O||14||17||And of the rest of the oil which is in his hand, the priest will put some on the point of the right ear of the man who is to be made clean, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot, over the blood of the offering for wrongdoing;
03O||14||18||And the rest of the oil in the priest's hand he will put on the head of him who is to be made clean; and so the priest will make him free from sin before the Lord.
03O||14||19||And the priest will give the sin-offering, and take away the sin of him who is to be made clean from his unclean condition; and after that he will put the burned offering to death.
03O||14||20||And the priest is to have the burned offering and the meal offering burned on the altar; and the priest will take away his sin and he will be clean.
03O||14||21||And if he is poor and not able to get so much, then he may take one male lamb as an offering for wrongdoing, to be waved to take away his sin, and one tenth part of an ephah of the best meal mixed with oil for a meal offering, and a log of oil;
03O||14||22||And two doves or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get; and one will be for a sin-offering and the other for a burned offering.
03O||14||23||And on the eighth day he will take them to the priest, to the door of the Tent of meeting before the Lord, so that he may be made clean.
03O||14||24||And the priest will take the lamb of the offering for wrongdoing and the oil, waving them for a wave offering before the Lord;
03O||14||25||And he will put to death the lamb of the offering for wrongdoing and the priest will take some of the blood of the offering for wrongdoing and put it on the point of the right ear of him who is to be made clean, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot;
03O||14||26||And the priest will put out some of the oil in the hollow of his left hand,
03O||14||27||Shaking out drops of oil with his right finger before the Lord seven times:
03O||14||28||And the priest will put some of the oil which is in his hand on the point of the ear of the man who is to be made clean and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot, on the place where the blood of the offering for wrongdoing was put;
03O||14||29||And the rest of the oil which is in the priest's hand he will put on the head of him who is to be made clean, to take away his sin before the Lord.
03O||14||30||And he will make an offering of one of the doves or the young pigeons, such as he is able to get;
03O||14||31||And of these, he will give one for a sin-offering and one for a burned offering, with the meal offering; and the priest will take away the sin of him who is to be made clean before the Lord.
03O||14||32||This is the law for the man who has the disease of the leper on him, and who is not able to get that which is necessary for making himself clean.
03O||14||33||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
03O||14||34||When you have come into the land of Canaan which I will give you for your heritage, if I put the leper's disease on a house in the land of your heritage,
03O||14||35||Then let the owner of the house come and say to the priest, It seems to me that there is a sort of leper's disease in the house.
03O||14||36||And the priest will give orders for everything to be taken out of the house, before he goes in to see the disease, so that the things in the house may not become unclean; and then the priest is to go in to see the house;
03O||14||37||And if he sees that the walls of the house are marked with hollows of green and red, and if it seems to go deeper than the face of the wall;
03O||14||38||Then the priest will go out of the door of the house, and keep the house shut up for seven days:
03O||14||39||And the priest is to come again on the seventh day and have a look and see if the marks on the walls of the house are increased in size;
03O||14||40||Then the priest will give orders to them to take out the stones in which the disease is seen, and put them out into an unclean place outside the town:
03O||14||41||And he will have the house rubbed all over inside, and the paste which is rubbed off will be put out into an unclean place outside the town:
03O||14||42||And they will take other stones and put them in place of those stones, and he will take other paste and put it on the walls of the house.
03O||14||43||And if the disease comes out again in the house after he has taken out the stones and after the walls have been rubbed and the new paste put on,
03O||14||44||Then the priest will come and see it; and if the disease in the house is increased in size, it is the leper's disease working out in the house: it is unclean.
03O||14||45||And the house will have to be pulled down, the stones of it and the wood and the paste; and everything is to be taken out to an unclean place outside the town.
03O||14||46||And, in addition, anyone who goes into the house at any time, while it is shut up, will be unclean till evening.
03O||14||47||And anyone who has been sleeping in the house will have to have his clothing washed; and anyone who takes food in that house will have to have his clothing washed.
03O||14||48||And if the priest comes in, and sees that the disease is not increased after the new paste has been put on the house, then the priest will say that the house is clean, because the disease is gone.
03O||14||49||And in order to make the house clean, let him take two birds and cedar-wood and red thread and hyssop;
03O||14||50||And put one of the birds to death in a vessel of earth over flowing water;
03O||14||51||And take the cedar-wood and the hyssop and the red thread and the living bird and put them in the blood of the dead bird and in the flowing water, shaking it over the house seven times.
03O||14||52||And he will make the house clean with the blood of the bird and the flowing water and with the living bird and with the cedar-wood and the hyssop and the red thread.
03O||14||53||But he will let the living bird go out of the town into the open country; so he will take away sin from the house and it will be clean.
03O||14||54||This is the law for all signs of the leper's disease and for skin diseases;
03O||14||55||And for signs of disease in clothing, or in a house;
03O||14||56||And for a growth or a bad place or a bright mark on the skin;
03O||14||57||To make clear when it is unclean and when it is clean: this is the law about the disease of the leper.
03O||15||1||And the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron,
03O||15||2||Say to the children of Israel: If a man has an unclean flow from his flesh, it will make him unclean.
03O||15||3||If the flow goes on or if the part is stopped up, to keep back the flow, he is still unclean.
03O||15||4||Every bed on which he has been resting will be unclean, and everything on which he has been seated will be unclean.
03O||15||5||And anyone touching his bed is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||6||And he who has been seated on anything on which the unclean man has been seated is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||7||And anyone touching the flesh of the unclean man is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||8||And if liquid from the mouth of the unclean man comes on to him who is clean, then he is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||9||And any leather seat on a horse on which the unclean man has been seated will be unclean.
03O||15||10||And anyone touching anything which was under him will be unclean till the evening; anyone taking up any of these things is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||11||And anyone on whom the unclean man puts his hands, without washing them in water, is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||12||And any vessel of earth which has been touched by the unclean man will have to be broken and any vessel of wood washed.
03O||15||13||And when a man who has a flow from his body is made clean from it, he is to take seven days to make himself clean, washing his clothing and bathing his body in flowing water, and then he will be clean.
03O||15||14||And on the eighth day he is to take two doves or two young pigeons and come before the Lord to the door of the Tent of meeting and give them to the priest:
03O||15||15||And they are to be offered by the priest, one for a sin-offering and one for a burned offering, and the priest will take away his sin before the Lord on account of his flow.
03O||15||16||And if a man's seed goes out from him, then all his body will have to be bathed in water and he will be unclean till evening.
03O||15||17||And any clothing or skin on which the seed comes is to be washed with water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||18||And if a man has sex relations with a woman and his seed goes out from him, the two of them will have to be bathed in water and will be unclean till evening.
03O||15||19||And if a woman has a flow of blood from her body, she will have to be kept separate for seven days, and anyone touching her will be unclean till evening.
03O||15||20||And everything on which she has been resting, while she is kept separate, will be unclean, and everything on which she has been seated will be unclean.
03O||15||21||And anyone touching her bed will have to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||22||And anyone touching anything on which she has been seated will have to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
03O||15||23||Anyone touching anything on the bed or on the thing on which she has been seated, will be unclean till evening.
03O||15||24||And if any man has sex relations with her so that her blood comes on him, he will be unclean for seven days and every bed on which he has been resting will be unclean.
03O||15||25||And if a woman has a flow of blood for a long time, not at the time when she generally has it, or if the flow goes on longer than the normal time, she will be unclean while the flow of blood goes on, as she is at other normal times.
03O||15||26||Every bed on which she has been resting will be unclean, as at the times when she normally has a flow of blood, and everything on which she has been seated will be unclean, in the same way.
03O||15||27||And anyone touching these things will be unclean, and his clothing will have to be washed and his body bathed in water and he will be unclean till evening.
03O||15||28||But when her flow of blood is stopped, after seven days she will be clean.
03O||15||29||And on the eighth day let her get two doves or two young pigeons and take them to the priest to the door of the Tent of meeting,
03O||15||30||To be offered by the priest, one for a sin-offering and one for a burned offering; and the priest will take away her sin before the Lord on account of her unclean condition.
03O||15||31||In this way may the children of Israel be made free from all sorts of unclean conditions, so that death may not overtake them when they are unclean and when they make unclean my holy place which is among them.
03O||15||32||This is the law for the man who has a flow from his body, or whose seed goes from him so that he is unclean;
03O||15||33||And for her who has a flow of blood, and for any man or woman who has an unclean flow, and for him who has sex relations with a woman when she is unclean.
03O||16||1||And the Lord said to Moses, after the death of the two sons of Aaron when they took in strange fire before the Lord and death overtook them;
03O||16||2||The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, your brother, that he may not come at all times into the holy place inside the veil, before the cover which is on the ark, for fear that death may overtake him; for I will be seen in the cloud on the cover of the ark.
03O||16||3||Let Aaron come into the holy place in this way: with an ox for a sin-offering and a male sheep for a burned offering.
03O||16||4||Let him put on the holy linen coat, and the linen trousers on his body, and the linen band round him, and the linen head-dress on his head; for this is holy clothing, and before he puts them on his body is to be washed with water.
03O||16||5||And let him take from the children of Israel two he-goats for a sin-offering and one male sheep for a burned offering.
03O||16||6||And Aaron is to give the ox of the sin-offering for himself, to make himself and his house free from sin.
03O||16||7||And he is to take the two goats and put them before the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting.
03O||16||8||And Aaron will make selection from the two goats by the decision of the Lord, one goat for the Lord and one for Azazel.
03O||16||9||And the goat which is marked out for the Lord, let Aaron give for a sin-offering.
03O||16||10||But the goat for Azazel is to be placed living before the Lord, for the taking away of sin, that it may be sent away for Azazel into the waste land.
03O||16||11||And Aaron is to give the ox of the sin-offering for himself and take away sin from himself and his house, and put to death the ox of the sin-offering which is for himself.
03O||16||12||And he is to take a vessel full of burning coal from the altar before the Lord and in his hand some sweet perfume crushed small, and take it inside the veil;
03O||16||13||And let him put the perfume on the fire before the Lord so that the ark may be covered with a cloud of the smoke of the perfume, in order that death may not overtake him.
03O||16||14||And let him take some of the blood of the ox, shaking drops of it from his finger on the cover of the ark on the east side, and before it, seven times.
03O||16||15||Then let him put to death the goat of the sin-offering for the people, and take its blood inside the veil and do with it as he did with the blood of the ox, shaking drops of it on and before the cover of the ark.
03O||16||16||And let him make the holy place free from whatever is unclean among the children of Israel and from their wrongdoing in all their sins; and let him do the same for the Tent of meeting, which has its place among an unclean people.
03O||16||17||And no man may be in the Tent of meeting from the time when Aaron goes in to take away sin in the holy place till he comes out, having made himself and his house and all the people of Israel free from sin.
03O||16||18||And he is to go out to the altar which is before the Lord and make it free from sin; and he is to take some of the blood of the ox and the blood of the goat and put it on the horns of the altar and round it;
03O||16||19||Shaking drops of the blood from his finger on it seven times to make it holy and clean from whatever is unclean among the children of Israel.
03O||16||20||And when he has done whatever is necessary to make the holy place and the Tent of meeting and the altar free from sin, let him put the living goat before the Lord;
03O||16||21||And Aaron, placing his two hands on the head of the living goat, will make a public statement over him of all the evil doings of the children of Israel and all their wrongdoing, in all their sins; and he will put them on the head of the goat and send him away, in the care of a man who will be waiting there, into the waste land.
03O||16||22||And the goat will take all their sins into a land cut off from men, and he will send the goat away into the waste land.
03O||16||23||Then let Aaron come into the Tent of meeting and take off the linen clothing which he put on when he went into the holy place, and put them down there;
03O||16||24||And after bathing his body in water in a holy place, he is to put on his clothing and come out and give his burned offering and the burned offering of the people, to take away his sin and the sin of the people.
03O||16||25||And the fat of the sin-offering is to be burned by him on the altar.
03O||16||26||And the man who takes away the goat for Azazel is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and then he may come back to the tent-circle.
03O||16||27||And the ox of the sin-offering and the goat of the sin-offering, whose blood was taken in to make the holy place free from sin, are to be taken away outside the tent-circle and their skins and their flesh and their waste are to be burned with fire.
03O||16||28||And the man by whom they are burned is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water, and then he may come back to the tent-circle.
03O||16||29||And let this be an order to you for ever: in the seventh month, on the tenth day, you are to keep yourselves from pleasure and do no sort of work, those who are Israelites by birth and those from other lands who are living among you:
03O||16||30||For on this day your sin will be taken away and you will be clean: you will be made free from all your sins before the Lord.
03O||16||31||It is a special Sabbath for you, and you are to keep yourselves from pleasure; it is an order for ever.
03O||16||32||And the man on whose head the holy oil has been put, and who has been marked out to be a priest in his father's place, will do what is necessary to take away sin, and will put on the linen clothing, even the holy robes:
03O||16||33||And he will make the holy place and the Tent of meeting and the altar free from sin; he will take away sin from the priests and from all the people.
03O||16||34||And let this be an order for ever for you, so that the sin of the children of Israel may be taken away once every year. And he did as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||17||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||17||2||Say to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel: This is the order which the Lord has given.
03O||17||3||If any man of Israel puts to death an ox or a lamb or a goat, in or outside the tent-circle;
03O||17||4||And has not taken it to the door of the Tent of meeting, to make an offering to the Lord, before the Lord's House, its blood will be on him, for he has taken life, and he will be cut off from among his people:
03O||17||5||So that the children of Israel may take to the Lord, to the door of the Tent of meeting and to the priest, the offerings which they have put to death in the open country, and that they may make their peace-offerings to the Lord.
03O||17||6||And the priest will put blood on the altar of the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting, burning the fat for a sweet smell to the Lord.
03O||17||7||And let them make no more offerings to evil spirits, after which they have gone, turning away from the Lord. Let this be a law to them for ever, through all their generations.
03O||17||8||And say to them, If any man of Israel, or any other living among them, makes a burned offering or other offering,
03O||17||9||And does not take it to the door of the Tent of meeting to make an offering to the Lord, that man will be cut off from among his people.
03O||17||10||And if any man of Israel, or any other living among them, takes any sort of blood for food, my wrath will be turned against that man and he will be cut off from among his people.
03O||17||11||For the life of the flesh is in its blood; and I have given it to you on the altar to take away your sin: for it is the blood which makes free from sin because of the life in it.
03O||17||12||For this reason I have said to the children of Israel, No man among you, or any others living with you, may take blood as food.
03O||17||13||And any man of Israel, or any other living among them, who gets with his bow any beast or bird used for food, is to see that its blood is covered with earth.
03O||17||14||For the blood is the life of all flesh: and so I have said to the children of Israel, You may not take any sort of blood as food, and any man who does so will be cut of.
03O||17||15||And anyone who takes as food anything which has come to a natural end, or anything which has been put to death by beasts, if he is one of you by birth, or of another nation, will have to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening, and then he will be clean.
03O||17||16||But if his clothing is not washed and his body bathed, his sin will be on him.
03O||18||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||18||2||Say to the children of Israel, I am the Lord your God.
03O||18||3||You may not do those things which were done in the land of Egypt where you were living; and you may not do those things which are done in the land of Canaan where I am taking you, or be guided in your behaviour by their rules.
03O||18||4||But you are to be guided by my decisions and keep my rules, and be guided by them: I am the Lord your God.
03O||18||5||So keep my rules and my decisions, which, if a man does them, will be life to him: I am the Lord.
03O||18||6||You may not have sex connection with anyone who is a near relation: I am the Lord.
03O||18||7||You may not have sex relations with your father or your mother: she is your mother, you may not take her.
03O||18||8||And you may not have sex relations with your father's wife: she is your father's.
03O||18||9||You may not take your sister, the daughter of your father or of your mother, wherever her birth took place, among you or in another country.
03O||18||10||You may not have sex relations with your son's daughter or your daughter's daughter, for they are part of yourself;
03O||18||11||Or your father's wife's daughter, the child of your father, for she is your sister.
03O||18||12||You may not have sex connection with your father's sister, for she is your father's near relation.
03O||18||13||You may not have sex connection with your mother's sister, for she is your mother's near relation.
03O||18||14||You may not have sex relations with the wife of your father's brother, for she is of your family;
03O||18||15||Or with your daughter-in-law, for she is your son's wife, and you may not take her.
03O||18||16||You may not have sex relations with your brother's wife, for she is your brother's.
03O||18||17||You may not take as wife a woman and her daughter, or her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, for they are of one family: it is an act of shame.
03O||18||18||And you may not take as wife a woman and at the same time her sister, to be in competition with her in her life-time.
03O||18||19||And you may not go near a woman or have sex relations with her when she is unclean, at her regular time.
03O||18||20||And you may not have sex relations with your neighbour's wife, making yourself unclean with her.
03O||18||21||And you may not make any of your children go through the fire as an offering to Molech, and you may not put shame on the name of your God: I am the Lord.
03O||18||22||You may not have sex relations with men, as you do with women: it is a disgusting thing.
03O||18||23||And you may not have sex relations with a beast, making yourself unclean with it; and a woman may not give herself to a beast: it is an unnatural act.
03O||18||24||Do not make yourself unclean in any of these ways; for so have those nations whom I am driving out from before you made themselves unclean:
03O||18||25||And the land itself has become unclean; so that I have sent on it the reward of its wrongdoing, and the land itself puts out those who are living in it.
03O||18||26||So then keep my rules and my decisions, and do not do any of these disgusting things, those of you who are Israelites by birth, or any others who are living with you:
03O||18||27||(For all these disgusting things were done by the men of this country who were there before you, and the land has been made unclean by them;)
03O||18||28||So that the land may not put you out from it, when you make it unclean, as it put out the nations which were there before you.
03O||18||29||For all those who do any of these disgusting things will be cut off from among their people.
03O||18||30||So then, keep my orders, so that you may not do any of these disgusting things which were done before you, or make yourselves unclean through them: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||19||2||Say to all the people of Israel, You are to be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy.
03O||19||3||Let every man give honour to his mother and to his father and keep my Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||4||Do not go after false gods, and do not make metal images of gods for yourselves: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||5||And when you give a peace offering to the Lord, do it in the way which is pleasing to the Lord.
03O||19||6||Let it be used for food on the same day on which it is offered, or on the day after; and whatever is over on the third day is to be burned with fire.
03O||19||7||If any of it is used for food on the third day, it is a disgusting thing and will not be pleasing to the Lord.
03O||19||8||And as for anyone who takes it for food, his sin will be on him, for he has put shame on the holy thing of the Lord: he will be cut off from his people.
03O||19||9||And when you get in the grain from your land, do not let all the grain be cut from the edges of the field, or take up what has been dropped on the earth after the getting in of the grain.
03O||19||10||And do not take all the grapes from your vine-garden, or the fruit dropped on the earth; let the poor man, and the man from another country, have these: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||11||Do not take anyone's property or be false in act or word to another.
03O||19||12||And do not take an oath in my name falsely, putting shame on the name of your God: I am the Lord.
03O||19||13||Do not be cruel to your neighbour or take what is his; do not keep back a servant's payment from him all night till the morning.
03O||19||14||Do not put a curse on those who have no hearing, or put a cause of falling in the way of the blind, but keep the fear of your God before you: I am the Lord.
03O||19||15||Do no wrong in your judging: do not give thought to the position of the poor, or honour to the position of the great; but be a judge to your neighbour in righteousness.
03O||19||16||Do not go about saying untrue things among your people, or take away the life of your neighbour by false witness: I am the Lord.
03O||19||17||Let there be no hate in your heart for your brother; but you may make a protest to your neighbour, so that he may be stopped from doing evil.
03O||19||18||Do not make attempts to get equal with one who has done you wrong, or keep hard feelings against the children of your people, but have love for your neighbour as for yourself: I am the Lord.
03O||19||19||Keep my laws. Do not let your cattle have offspring by those of a different sort; do not put mixed seed into your field; do not put on a robe made of two sorts of cloth.
03O||19||20||If any man has sex relations with a servant-woman who has given her word to be married to a man, and has not been made free for a price or in any other way, the thing will be looked into; but they will not be put to death because she was not a free woman.
03O||19||21||Let him take his offering for wrongdoing to the Lord, to the door of the Tent of meeting; let him give a male sheep as an offering for wrongdoing.
03O||19||22||And the priest will take away his sin before the Lord with the sheep which is offered for his wrongdoing, and he will have forgiveness for the sin which he has done.
03O||19||23||And when you have come into the land, and have put in all sorts of fruit-trees, their fruit will be as if they had not had circumcision, and for three years their fruit may not be used for food.
03O||19||24||And in the fourth year all the fruit will be holy as a praise-offering to the Lord.
03O||19||25||But in the fifth year you may take the fruit and the increase of it for your food: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||26||Nothing may be used for food with its blood in it; you may not make use of strange arts, or go in search of signs and wonders.
03O||19||27||The ends of the hair round your face and on your chin may not be cut off.
03O||19||28||You may not make cuts in your flesh in respect for the dead, or have marks printed on your bodies: I am the Lord.
03O||19||29||Do not make your daughter common by letting her become a loose woman, for fear that the land may become full of shame.
03O||19||30||Keep my Sabbaths and have respect for my holy place: I am the Lord.
03O||19||31||Do not go after those who make use of spirits, or wonder-workers; do not go in their ways or become unclean through them: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||32||Get up from your seats before the white-haired, and give honour to the old, and let the fear of your God be before you: I am the Lord.
03O||19||33||And if a man from another country is living in your land with you, do not make life hard for him;
03O||19||34||Let him be to you as one of your countrymen and have love for him as for yourself; for you were living in a strange land, in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
03O||19||35||Do not make false decisions in questions of yard-sticks and weights and measures.
03O||19||36||Have true scales, true weights and measures for all things: I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt;
03O||19||37||You are to keep all my rules and my decisions and do them: I am the Lord.
03O||20||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||20||2||Again, say to the children of Israel, If any man of the children of Israel, or any other man living in Israel, gives his offspring to Molech, he is certainly to be put to death: he is to be stoned by the people of the land;
03O||20||3||And my face will be turned against that man, and he will be cut off from his people; because he has given his offspring to Molech, making my holy place unclean, and making my holy name common.
03O||20||4||And if the people of the land do not take note of that man when he gives his offspring to Molech, and do not put him to death,
03O||20||5||Then my face will be turned against him and his family, and he and all those who do evil with him will be cut off from among their people.
03O||20||6||And whoever goes after those who make use of spirits and wonder-workers, doing evil with them, against him will my face be turned, and he will be cut off from among his people.
03O||20||7||So make and keep yourselves holy, for I am the Lord your God.
03O||20||8||And keep my rules and do them: I am the Lord, who make you holy.
03O||20||9||Every man cursing his father or his mother is certainly to be put to death; because of his curse on his father or his mother, his blood will be on him.
03O||20||10||And if a man has sex relations with another man's wife, even the wife of his neighbour, he and she are certainly to be put to death.
03O||20||11||And the man who has sex relations with his father's wife has put shame on his father: the two of them are to be put to death; their blood will be on them.
03O||20||12||And if a man has sex relations with his son's wife, the two of them are to be put to death: it is unnatural; their blood will be on them.
03O||20||13||And if a man has sex relations with a man, the two of them have done a disgusting thing: let them be put to death; their blood will be on them.
03O||20||14||And if a man takes as wife a woman and her mother, it is an act of shame; let them be burned with fire, all three of them, so that there may be no shame among you.
03O||20||15||And if a man has sex relations with a beast, let him be put to death, and let the beast be put to destruction.
03O||20||16||And if a woman goes near a beast and has sex relations with it, you will put an end to the woman and the beast: their blood will be on them.
03O||20||17||And if a man takes his sister, daughter of his father or his mother, and has sex relations with her and she with him, it is an act of shame: they are to be cut off before the children of their people; he has had sex relations with his sister, and his sin will be on him.
03O||20||18||And if a man has sex relations with a woman at the time when she is unwell, he has seen her fountain and she has let the fountain of her blood be uncovered, and the two of them are to be cut off from among their people.
03O||20||19||And you may not have sex connection with your mother's sister or your father's sister, for they are his near relations: their sin will be on them.
03O||20||20||And if a man has sex relations with the wife of his father's brother, he has put shame on his father's brother: their sin will be on them; till the day of their death they will have no children.
03O||20||21||And if a man takes his brother's wife, it is an unclean act; he has put shame on his brother; they will have no children.
03O||20||22||So then, keep my rules and my decisions and do them, so that the land which I am giving you as your resting-place may not violently send you out again.
03O||20||23||And do not keep the rules of the nations which I am driving out before you; for they did all these things, and for that reason my soul was turned against them.
03O||20||24||But I have said to you, You will take their land and I will give it to you for your heritage, a land flowing with milk and honey: I am the Lord your God who have made you separate from all other peoples.
03O||20||25||So then, make division between the clean beast and the unclean, and between the clean bird and the unclean: do not make yourselves disgusting by any beast or bird or anything which goes flat on the earth, which has been marked by me as unclean for you.
03O||20||26||And you are to be holy to me; for I the Lord am holy and have made you separate from the nations, so that you may be my people.
03O||20||27||Any man or woman who makes use of spirits, or who is a wonder-worker, is to be put to death: they are to be stoned with stones: their blood will be on them.
03O||21||1||And the Lord said to Moses, Say to the priests, the sons of Aaron, Let no man make himself unclean for the dead among his people;
03O||21||2||But only for his near relations, for his mother or his father, his son or his daughter, and his brother;
03O||21||3||And for his sister, a virgin, for she is his near relation and has had no husband, he may make himself unclean.
03O||21||4||But let him, being a chief among his people, not make himself unclean in such a way as to put shame on himself.
03O||21||5||They are not to have their hair cut off for the dead, or the hair on their chins cut short, or make cuts in their flesh.
03O||21||6||Let them be holy to their God and not make the name of their God common; for the fire offerings of the Lord and the bread of their God are offered by them, and they are to be holy.
03O||21||7||They may not take as wife a loose or common woman, or one who has been put away by her husband: for the priest is holy to his God.
03O||21||8||And he is to be holy in your eyes, for by him the bread of your God is offered; he is to be holy in your eyes, for I the Lord, who make you holy, am holy.
03O||21||9||And if the daughter of a priest makes herself common and by her loose behaviour puts shame on her father, let her be burned with fire.
03O||21||10||And he who is the chief priest among his brothers, on whose head the holy oil has been put, who is marked out to put on the holy robes, may not let his hair go loose or have his clothing out of order as a sign of sorrow.
03O||21||11||He may not go near any dead body or make himself unclean for his father or his mother;
03O||21||12||He may not go out of the holy place or make the holy place of his God common; for the crown of the holy oil of his God is on him: I am the Lord.
03O||21||13||And let him take as his wife one who has not had relations with a man.
03O||21||14||A widow, or one whose husband has put her away, or a common woman of loose behaviour, may not be the wife of a priest; but let him take a virgin from among his people.
03O||21||15||And he may not make his seed unclean among his people, for I the Lord have made him holy.
03O||21||16||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||21||17||Say to Aaron, If a man of your family, in any generation, is damaged in body, let him not come near to make the offering of the bread of his God.
03O||21||18||For any man whose body is damaged may not come near: one who is blind, or has not the use of his legs, or one who has a broken nose or any unnatural growth,
03O||21||19||Or a man with broken feet or hands,
03O||21||20||Or one whose back is bent, or one who is unnaturally small, or one who has a damaged eye, or whose skin is diseased, or whose sex parts are damaged;
03O||21||21||No man of the offspring of Aaron whose body is damaged in any way may come near to give the fire offerings of the Lord: he is damaged, he may not come near to make the offerings.
03O||21||22||He may take of the bread of God, the holy and the most holy;
03O||21||23||But he may not go inside the veil or come near the altar, because he is damaged; and he may not make my holy places common; for I the Lord have made them holy.
03O||21||24||These are the words which Moses said to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel.
03O||22||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||22||2||Give orders to Aaron and to his sons to keep themselves separate from the holy things of the children of Israel which they give to me, and not to make my holy name common: I am the Lord,
03O||22||3||Say to them, If any man of all your seed through all your generations, being unclean, comes near the holy things which the children of Israel make holy to the Lord, he will be cut off from before me: I am the Lord.
03O||22||4||No man of the seed of Aaron who is a leper, or who has a flow from his body, may take of the holy food till he is clean. And any man touching anything which is unclean because of the dead, or any man whose seed goes from him;
03O||22||5||Or anyone touching any unclean thing which goes flat on the earth, or someone by whom he may be made unclean in any way whatever;
03O||22||6||Any person touching any such unclean thing will be unclean till evening, and may not take of the holy food till his flesh has been bathed in water;
03O||22||7||And when the sun has gone down he will be clean; and after that he may take part in the holy food, because it is his bread.
03O||22||8||That which comes to a natural death, or is attacked by beasts, he may not take as food, for it will make him unclean: I am the Lord.
03O||22||9||So then, let them keep what I have put into their care, for fear that sin may come on them because of it, so causing their death because they have made it common: I am the Lord, who make them holy.
03O||22||10||No outside person may take of the holy food, or one living as a guest in the priest's house, or a servant working for payment.
03O||22||11||But any person for whom the priest has given money, to make him his, may take of it with him; and those who come to birth in his house may take of his bread.
03O||22||12||And if the daughter of a priest is married to an outside person she may not take of the holy things which are lifted up as offerings.
03O||22||13||But if a priest's daughter is a widow, or parted from her husband, and has no child, and has come back to her father's house as when she was a girl, she may take of her father's bread; but no outside person may do so.
03O||22||14||And if a man takes the holy food in error, he will have to give the holy thing back to the priest, with the addition of a fifth part.
03O||22||15||And they may not make common the holy things which the children of Israel give to the Lord,
03O||22||16||So causing sin to come on them when they take their holy things for food: I am the Lord who make them holy.
03O||22||17||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||22||18||Say to Aaron and to his sons and to all the children of Israel, If any man of the children of Israel, or of another nation living in Israel, makes an offering, given because of an oath or freely given to the Lord for a burned offering;
03O||22||19||So that it may be pleasing to the Lord, let him give a male, without any mark, from among the oxen or the sheep or the goats.
03O||22||20||But anything which has a mark you may not give; it will not make you pleasing to the Lord.
03O||22||21||And whoever makes a peace-offering to the Lord, in payment of an oath or as a free offering, from the herd or the flock, if it is to be pleasing to the Lord, let it be free from any mark or damage.
03O||22||22||Anything blind or broken or damaged or having any disease or any mark on it may not be offered to the Lord; you may not make an offering of it by fire on the altar to the Lord.
03O||22||23||An ox or a lamb which has more or less than its natural parts, may be given as a free offering; but it will not be taken in payment of an oath.
03O||22||24||An animal which has its sex parts damaged or crushed or broken or cut, may not be offered to the Lord; such a thing may not be done anywhere in your land.
03O||22||25||And from one who is not an Israelite you may not take any of these for an offering to the Lord; for they are unclean, there is a mark on them, and the Lord will not be pleased with them.
03O||22||26||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||22||27||When an ox or a sheep or a goat is given birth, let it be with its mother for seven days; and after the eighth day it may be taken as an offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||22||28||A cow or a sheep may not be put to death with its young on the same day.
03O||22||29||And when you make an offering of praise to the Lord, make it in a way which is pleasing to him.
03O||22||30||Let it be used for food on the same day; do not keep any part of it till the morning: I am the Lord.
03O||22||31||So then, keep my orders and do them: I am the Lord.
03O||22||32||And do not make my holy name common; so that it may be kept holy by the children of Israel: I am the Lord who make you holy,
03O||22||33||Who took you out of the land of Egypt that I might be your God: I am the Lord.
03O||23||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||23||2||Say to the children of Israel, These are the fixed feasts of the Lord, which you will keep for holy meetings: these are my feasts.
03O||23||3||On six days work may be done; but the seventh day is a special day of rest, a time for worship; you may do no sort of work: it is a Sabbath to the Lord wherever you may be living.
03O||23||4||These are the fixed feasts of the Lord, the holy days of worship which you will keep at their regular times.
03O||23||5||In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at nightfall, is the Lord's Passover;
03O||23||6||And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread; for seven days let your food be unleavened bread.
03O||23||7||On the first day you will have a holy meeting; you may do no sort of field-work.
03O||23||8||And every day for seven days you will give a burned offering to the Lord; and on the seventh day there will be a holy meeting; you may do no field-work.
03O||23||9||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||23||10||Say to the children of Israel, When you have come to the land which I will give you, and have got in the grain from its fields, take some of the first-fruits of the grain to the priest;
03O||23||11||And let the grain be waved before the Lord, so that you may be pleasing to him; on the day after the Sabbath let it be waved by the priest.
03O||23||12||And on the day of the waving of the grain, you are to give a male lamb of the first year, without any mark, for a burned offering to the Lord.
03O||23||13||And let the meal offering with it be two tenth parts of an ephah of the best meal mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to the Lord for a sweet smell; and the drink offering with it is to be of wine, the fourth part of a hin.
03O||23||14||And you may take no bread or dry grain or new grain for food till the very day on which you have given the offering for your God: this is a rule for ever through all your generations wherever you are living.
03O||23||15||And let seven full weeks be numbered from the day after the Sabbath, the day when you give the grain for the wave offering;
03O||23||16||Let fifty days be numbered, to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you are to give a new meal offering to the Lord.
03O||23||17||Take from your houses two cakes of bread, made of a fifth part of an ephah of the best meal, cooked with leaven, to be waved for first-fruits to the Lord.
03O||23||18||And with the bread, take seven lambs of the first year, without any marks, and one ox and two male sheep, to be a burned offering to the Lord, with their meal offering and their drink offerings, an offering of a sweet smell made by fire to the Lord.
03O||23||19||And you are to give one male goat for a sin-offering and two male lambs of the first year for peace-offerings.
03O||23||20||And these will be waved by the priest, with the bread of the first-fruits, for a wave offering to the Lord, with the two lambs: they will be holy to the Lord for the priest.
03O||23||21||And on the same day, let it be given out that there will be a holy meeting for you: you may do no field-work on that day: it is a rule for ever through all your generations wherever you are living.
03O||23||22||And when you get in the grain from your land, do not let all the grain at the edges of the field be cut, and do not take up the grain which has been dropped in the field; let that be for the poor, and for the man from another country: I am the Lord your God.
03O||23||23||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||23||24||Say to the children of Israel, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, let there be a special day of rest for you, a day of memory, marked by the blowing of horns, a meeting for worship.
03O||23||25||Do no field-work and give to the Lord an offering made by fire.
03O||23||26||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||23||27||The tenth day of this seventh month is the day for the taking away of sin; let it be a holy day of worship; you are to keep from pleasure, and give to the Lord an offering made by fire.
03O||23||28||And on that day you may do no sort of work, for it is a day of taking away sin, to make you clean before the Lord your God.
03O||23||29||For any person, whoever he may be, who takes his pleasure on that day will be cut off from his people.
03O||23||30||And if any person, whoever he may be, on that day does any sort of work, I will send destruction on him from among his people.
03O||23||31||You may not do any sort of work: this is an order for ever through all your generations wherever you may be living.
03O||23||32||Let this be a Sabbath of special rest to you, and keep yourselves from all pleasure; on the ninth day of the month at nightfall from evening to evening, let this Sabbath be kept.
03O||23||33||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||23||34||Say to the children of Israel, On the fifteenth day of this seventh month let the feast of tents be kept to the Lord for seven days.
03O||23||35||On the first day there will be a holy meeting: do no field-work.
03O||23||36||Every day for seven days give an offering made by fire to the Lord; and on the eighth day there is to be a holy meeting, when you are to give an offering made by fire to the Lord; this is a special holy day: you may do no field-work on that day.
03O||23||37||These are the fixed feasts of the Lord, to be kept by you as holy days of worship, for making an offering by fire to the Lord; a burned offering, a meal offering, an offering of beasts, and drink offerings; every one on its special day;
03O||23||38||In addition to the Sabbaths of the Lord, and in addition to the things you give and the oaths you make and the free offerings to the Lord.
03O||23||39||But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have got in all the fruits of the land, you will keep the feast of the Lord for seven days: the first day will be a Sabbath, and the eighth day the same.
03O||23||40||On the first day, take the fruit of fair trees, branches of palm-trees, and branches of thick trees and trees from the riverside, and be glad before the Lord for seven days.
03O||23||41||And let this feast be kept before the Lord for seven days in the year: it is a rule for ever from generation to generation; in the seventh month let it be kept.
03O||23||42||For seven days you will be living in tents; all those who are Israelites by birth are to make tents their living-places:
03O||23||43||So that future generations may keep in mind how I gave the children of Israel tents as their living-places when I took them out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
03O||23||44||And Moses made clear to the children of Israel the orders about the fixed feasts of the Lord.
03O||24||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||24||2||Give orders to the children of Israel to give you clean olive oil for the light, so that a light may be burning at all times,
03O||24||3||Outside the veil of the ark in the Tent of meeting; let Aaron see that it is burning from evening till morning at all times before the Lord: it is a rule for ever through all your generations.
03O||24||4||Let Aaron put the lights in order on the support before the Lord at all times.
03O||24||5||And take the best meal and make twelve cakes of it, a fifth part of an ephah in every cake.
03O||24||6||And put them in two lines, six in a line, on the holy table before the Lord.
03O||24||7||And on the lines of cakes put clean sweet-smelling spices, for a sign on the bread, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
03O||24||8||Every Sabbath day regularly, the priest is to put it in order before the Lord: it is offered for the children of Israel, an agreement made for ever.
03O||24||9||And it will be for Aaron and his sons; they are to take it for food in a holy place: it is the most holy of all the offerings made by fire to the Lord, a rule for ever.
03O||24||10||And a son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel and had a fight with a man of Israel by the tents;
03O||24||11||And the son of the Israelite woman said evil against the holy Name, with curses; and they took him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
03O||24||12||And they kept him shut up, till a decision might be given by the mouth of the Lord.
03O||24||13||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||24||14||Take the curser outside the tent-circle; and let all in whose hearing the words were said put their hands on his head, and let him be stoned by all the people.
03O||24||15||And say to the children of Israel, As for any man cursing God, his sin will be on his head.
03O||24||16||And he who says evil against the name of the Lord will certainly be put to death; he will be stoned by all the people; the man who is not of your nation and one who is an Israelite by birth, whoever says evil against the holy Name is to be put to death.
03O||24||17||And anyone who takes another's life is certainly to be put to death.
03O||24||18||And anyone wounding a beast and causing its death, will have to make payment for it: a life for a life.
03O||24||19||And if a man does damage to his neighbour, as he has done, so let it be done to him;
03O||24||20||Wound for wound, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; whatever damage he has done, so let it be done to him.
03O||24||21||He who puts a beast to death will have to make payment for it; he who puts a man to death will himself be put to death.
03O||24||22||You are to have the same law for a man of another nation living among you as for an Israelite; for I am the Lord your God.
03O||24||23||And Moses said these words to the children of Israel, and they took the man who had been cursing outside the tent-circle and had him stoned. The children of Israel did as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
03O||25||1||And the Lord said to Moses on Mount Sinai,
03O||25||2||Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land which I will give you, let the land keep a Sabbath to the Lord.
03O||25||3||For six years put seed into your land, and for six years give care to your vines and get in the produce of them;
03O||25||4||But let the seventh year be a Sabbath of rest for the land, a Sabbath to the Lord; do not put seed into your land or have your vines cut.
03O||25||5||That which comes to growth of itself may not be cut, and the grapes of your uncared-for vines may not be taken off; let it be a year of rest for the land.
03O||25||6||And the Sabbath of the land will give food for you and your man-servant and your woman-servant and those working for payment, and for those of another country who are living among you;
03O||25||7||And for your cattle and the beasts on the land; all the natural increase of the land will be for food.
03O||25||8||And let seven Sabbaths of years be numbered to you, seven times seven years; even the days of seven Sabbaths of years, that is forty-nine years;
03O||25||9||Then let the loud horn be sounded far and wide on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of taking away sin let the horn be sounded through all your land.
03O||25||10||And let this fiftieth year be kept holy, and say publicly that everyone in the land is free from debt: it is the Jubilee, and every man may go back to his heritage and to his family.
03O||25||11||Let this fiftieth year be the Jubilee: no seed may be planted, and that which comes to growth of itself may not be cut, and the grapes may not be taken from the uncared-for vines.
03O||25||12||For it is the Jubilee, and it is holy to you; your food will be the natural increase of the field.
03O||25||13||In this year of Jubilee, let every man go back to his heritage.
03O||25||14||And in the business of trading goods for money, do no wrong to one another.
03O||25||15||Let your exchange of goods with your neighbours have relation to the number of years after the year of Jubilee, and the number of times the earth has given her produce.
03O||25||16||If the number of years is great, the price will be increased, and if the number of years is small, the price will be less, for it is the produce of a certain number of years which the man is giving you.
03O||25||17||And do no wrong, one to another, but let the fear of your God be before you; for I am the Lord your God.
03O||25||18||So keep my rules and my decisions and do them, and you will be safe in your land.
03O||25||19||And the land will give her fruit, and you will have food in full measure and be safe in the land.
03O||25||20||And if you say, Where will our food come from in the seventh year, when we may not put in seed, or get in the increase
03O||25||21||Then I will send my blessing on you in the sixth year, and the land will give fruit enough for three years.
03O||25||22||And in the eighth year you will put in your seed, and get your food from the old stores, till the fruit of the ninth year is ready.
03O||25||23||No exchange of land may be for ever, for the land is mine, and you are as my guests, living with me for a time.
03O||25||24||Wherever there is property in land, the owner is to have the right of getting it back.
03O||25||25||If your brother becomes poor, and has to give up some of his land for money, his nearest relation may come and get back that which his brother has given up.
03O||25||26||And if he has no one to get it back for him, and later he himself gets wealth and has enough money to get it back;
03O||25||27||Then let him take into account the years from the time when he gave it up, and make up the loss for the rest of the years to him who took it, and so get back his property.
03O||25||28||But if he is not able to get it back for himself, then it will be kept by him who gave a price for it, till the year of Jubilee; and in that year it will go back to its first owner and he will have his property again.
03O||25||29||And if a man gives his house in a walled town for money, he has the right to get it back for the space of a full year after he has given it up.
03O||25||30||And if he does not get it back by the end of the year, then the house in the town will become the property of him who gave the money for it, and of his children for ever; it will not go from him in the year of Jubilee.
03O||25||31||But houses in small unwalled towns will be the same as property in the country; they may be got back, and they will go back to their owners in the year of Jubilee.
03O||25||32||But the houses in the towns of the Levites may be got back by the Levites at any time.
03O||25||33||And if a Levite does not give money to get back his property, his house in the town which was exchanged for money will come back to him in the year of Jubilee. For the houses of the towns of the Levites are their property among the children of Israel.
03O||25||34||But the land on the outskirts of their towns may not be exchanged for money, for it is their property for ever.
03O||25||35||And if your brother becomes poor and is not able to make a living, then you are to keep him with you, helping him as you would a man from another country who is living among you.
03O||25||36||Take no interest from him, in money or in goods, but have the fear of your God before you, and let your brother make a living among you.
03O||25||37||Do not take interest on the money which you let him have or on the food which you give him.
03O||25||38||I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, that I might be your God.
03O||25||39||And if your brother becomes poor and gives himself to you for money, do not make use of him like a servant who is your property;
03O||25||40||But let him be with you as a servant working for payment, till the year of Jubilee;
03O||25||41||Then he will go out from you, he and his children with him, and go back to his family and to the property of his fathers.
03O||25||42||For they are my servants whom I took out from the land of Egypt; they may not become the property of another.
03O||25||43||Do not be a hard master to him, but have the fear of God before you.
03O||25||44||But you may get servants as property from among the nations round about; from them you may take men-servants and women-servants.
03O||25||45||And in addition, you may get, for money, servants from among the children of other nations who are living with you, and from their families which have come to birth in your land; and these will be your property.
03O||25||46||And they will be your children's heritage after you, to keep as their property; they will be your servants for ever; but you may not be hard masters to your countrymen, the children of Israel.
03O||25||47||And if one from another nation living among you gets wealth, and your countryman, at his side, becomes poor and gives himself for money to the man from another nation or to one of his family;
03O||25||48||After he has given himself he has the right to be made free, for a price, by one of his brothers,
03O||25||49||Or his father's brother, or the son of his father's brother, or any near relation; or if he gets money, he may make himself free.
03O||25||50||And let the years be numbered from the time when he gave himself to his owner till the year of Jubilee, and the price given for him will be in relation to the number of years, on the scale of the payment of a servant.
03O||25||51||If there is still a long time, he will give back, on account of it, a part of the price which was given for him.
03O||25||52||And if there is only a short time, he will take account of it with his master, and in relation to the number of years he will give back the price of making him free.
03O||25||53||And he will be with him as a servant working for payment year by year; his master is not to be cruel to him before your eyes.
03O||25||54||And if he is not made free in this way, he will go out in the year of Jubilee, he and his children with him.
03O||25||55||For the children of Israel are servants to me; they are my servants whom I took out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
03O||26||1||Do not make images of false gods, or put up an image cut in stone or a pillar or any pictured stone in your land, to give worship to it; for I am the Lord your God.
03O||26||2||Keep my Sabbaths and give honour to my holy place: I am the Lord.
03O||26||3||If you are guided by my rules, and keep my laws and do them,
03O||26||4||Then I will give you rain at the right time, and the land will give her increase and the trees of the field will give their fruit;
03O||26||5||And the crushing of the grain will overtake the cutting of the grapes, and the cutting of the grapes will overtake the planting of the seed, and there will be bread in full measure, and you will be living in your land safely.
03O||26||6||And I will give you peace in the land, and you will take your rest and no one will give you cause for fear; and I will put an end to all evil beasts in the land, and no sword of war will go through your land.
03O||26||7||And you will put to flight those who are against you, and they will be put to death by your swords.
03O||26||8||Then five of you will put to flight a hundred, and a hundred of you will put to flight ten thousand, and all who are against you will be put to death by your swords.
03O||26||9||And I will have pleasure in you and make you fertile and greater in number; and I will keep my agreement with you.
03O||26||10||And old stores long kept will be your food, and you will take out the old because of the new;
03O||26||11||And I will put my holy House among you, and my soul will not be turned away from you in disgust.
03O||26||12||And I will be present among you and will be your God and you will be my people.
03O||26||13||I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt so that you might not be servants to them; by me the cords of your yoke were broken and I made you go upright.
03O||26||14||But if you do not give ear to me, and do not keep all these my laws;
03O||26||15||And if you go against my rules and if you have hate in your souls for my decisions and you do not do all my orders, but go against my agreement;
03O||26||16||This will I do to you: I will put fear in your hearts, even wasting disease and burning pain, drying up the eyes and making the soul feeble, and you will get no profit from your seed, for your haters will take it for food.
03O||26||17||And my face will be turned from you, and you will be broken before those who are against you, and your haters will become your rulers, and you will go in flight when no man comes after you.
03O||26||18||And if, even after these things, you will not give ear to me, then I will send you punishment seven times more for your sins.
03O||26||19||And the pride of your strength will be broken, and I will make your heaven as iron and your earth as brass;
03O||26||20||And your strength will be used up without profit; for your land will not give her increase and the trees of the field will not give their fruit.
03O||26||21||And if you still go against me and will not give ear to me, I will put seven times more punishments on you because of your sins.
03O||26||22||I will let loose the beasts of the field among you, and they will take away your children and send destruction on your cattle, so that your numbers will become small and your roads become waste.
03O||26||23||And if by these things you will not be turned to me, but still go against me;
03O||26||24||Then I will go against you, and I will give you punishment, I myself, seven times for all your sins.
03O||26||25||And I will send a sword on you to give effect to the punishment of my agreement; and when you come together into your towns I will send disease among you and you will be given up into the hands of your haters.
03O||26||26||When I take away your bread of life, ten women will be cooking bread in one oven, and your bread will be measured out by weight; you will have food but never enough.
03O||26||27||And if, after all this, you do not give ear to me, but go against me still,
03O||26||28||Then my wrath will be burning against you, and I will give you punishment, I myself, seven times for your sins.
03O||26||29||Then you will take the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters for food;
03O||26||30||And I will send destruction on your high places, overturning your perfume altars, and will put your dead bodies on your broken images, and my soul will be turned from you in disgust.
03O||26||31||And I will make your towns waste and send destruction on your holy places; I will take no pleasure in the smell of your sweet perfumes;
03O||26||32||And I will make your land a waste, a wonder to your haters living in it.
03O||26||33||And I will send you out in all directions among the nations, and my sword will be uncovered against you, and your land will be without any living thing, and your towns will be made waste.
03O||26||34||Then will the land take pleasure in its Sabbaths while it is waste and you are living in the land of your haters; then will the land have rest.
03O||26||35||All the days while it is waste will the land have rest, such rest as it never had in your Sabbaths, when you were living in it.
03O||26||36||And as for the rest of you, I will make their hearts feeble in the land of their haters, and the sound of a leaf moved by the wind will send them in flight, and they will go in flight as from the sword, falling down when no one comes after them;
03O||26||37||Falling on one another, as before the sword, when no one comes after them; you will give way before your haters.
03O||26||38||And death will overtake you among strange nations, and the land of your haters will be your destruction.
03O||26||39||And those of you who are still living will be wasting away in their sins in the land of your haters; in the sins of their fathers they will be wasting away.
03O||26||40||And they will have grief for their sins and for the sins of their fathers, when their hearts were untrue to me, and they went against me;
03O||26||41||So that I went against them and sent them away into the land of their haters: if then the pride of their hearts is broken and they take the punishment of their sins,
03O||26||42||Then I will keep in mind the agreement which I made with Jacob and with Isaac and with Abraham, and I will keep in mind the land.
03O||26||43||And the land, while she is without them, will keep her Sabbaths; and they will undergo the punishment of their sins, because they were turned away from my decisions and in their souls was hate for my laws.
03O||26||44||But for all that, when they are in the land of their haters I will not let them go, or be turned away from them, or give them up completely; my agreement with them will not be broken, for I am the Lord their God.
03O||26||45||And because of them I will keep in mind the agreement which I made with their fathers, whom I took out of the land of Egypt before the eyes of the nations, to be their God: I am the Lord.
03O||26||46||These are the rules, decisions, and laws, which the Lord made between himself and the children of Israel in Mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses.
03O||27||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
03O||27||2||Say to the children of Israel, If a man makes a special oath, you will give your decision as to the value of the persons for the Lord.
03O||27||3||And you will put the value of a male from twenty years to sixty years old at fifty shekels of silver, by the scale of the holy place.
03O||27||4||And if it is a female, the value will be thirty shekels.
03O||27||5||And if the person is from five to twenty years old, the value will be twenty shekels for a male, and ten for a female.
03O||27||6||And if the person is from one month to five years old, then the value for a male will be five shekels of silver, and for a female three shekels.
03O||27||7||And for sixty years old and over, for a male the value will be fifteen shekels, and for a female, ten.
03O||27||8||But if he is poorer than the value which you have put on him, then let him be taken to the priest, and the priest will put a value on him, such as it is possible for him to give.
03O||27||9||And if it is a beast of which men make offerings to the Lord, whatever any man gives of such to the Lord will be holy.
03O||27||10||It may not be changed in any way, a good given for a bad, or a bad for a good; if one beast is changed for another, the two will be holy.
03O||27||11||And if it is any unclean beast, of which offerings are not made to the Lord, then let him take the beast before the priest;
03O||27||12||And let the priest put a value on it, if it is good or bad; whatever value the priest puts on it, so will it be.
03O||27||13||But if he has a desire to get it back for himself, let him give a fifth more than your value.
03O||27||14||And if a man has given his house as holy to the Lord, then the priest will put a value on it, if it is good or bad; as the priest gives decision so will the value be fixed.
03O||27||15||And if the owner has a desire to get back his house, let him give a fifth more than your value, and it will be his.
03O||27||16||And if a man gives to the Lord part of the field which is his property, then let your value be in relation to the seed which is planted in it; a measure of barley grain will be valued at fifty shekels of silver.
03O||27||17||If he gives his field from the year of Jubilee, the value will be fixed by your decision.
03O||27||18||But if he gives his field after the year of Jubilee, the amount of the money will be worked out by the priest in relation to the number of years till the coming year of Jubilee, and the necessary amount will be taken off your value.
03O||27||19||And if the man who has given the field has a desire to get it back, let him give a fifth more than the price at which it was valued and it will be his.
03O||27||20||But if he has no desire to get it back, or if he has given it for a price to another man, it may not be got back again.
03O||27||21||But the field, when it becomes free at the year of Jubilee, will be holy to the Lord, as a field given under oath: it will be the property of the priest.
03O||27||22||And if a man gives to the Lord a field which he has got for money from another, which is not part of his heritage;
03O||27||23||Then the value fixed by you up to the year of Jubilee will be worked out for him by the priest, and in that day he will give the amount of your value as holy to the Lord.
03O||27||24||In the year of Jubilee the field will go back to him from whom he got it, that is, to him whose heritage it was.
03O||27||25||And let all your values be based on the shekel of the holy place, that is, twenty gerahs to the shekel.
03O||27||26||But a man may not give by oath to the Lord the first-fruits of cattle which are offered to the Lord: if it is an ox or a sheep it is the Lord's.
03O||27||27||And if it is an unclean beast, then the owner of it may give money to get it back, in agreement with the value fixed by you, by giving a fifth more; or if it is not taken back, let it be given for money in agreement with your valuing.
03O||27||28||But nothing which a man has given completely to the Lord, out of all his property, of man or beast, or of the land which is his heritage, may be given away or got back in exchange for money; anything completely given is most holy to the Lord.
03O||27||29||Any man given completely to the Lord may not be got back: he is certainly to be put to death.
03O||27||30||And every tenth part of the land, of the seed planted, or of the fruit of trees, is holy to the Lord.
03O||27||31||And if a man has a desire to get back any of the tenth part which he has given, let him give a fifth more.
03O||27||32||And a tenth part of the herd and of the flock, whatever goes under the rod of the valuer, will be holy to the Lord.
03O||27||33||He may not make search to see if it is good or bad, or make any changes in it; and if he makes exchange of it for another, the two will be holy; he will not get them back again.
03O||27||34||These are the orders which the Lord gave to Moses for the children of Israel in Mount Sinai.
04O||1||1||And the Lord said to Moses in the waste land of Sinai, in the Tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they came out of the land of Egypt,
04O||1||2||Take the full number of the children of Israel, by their families, and by their fathers' houses, every male by name;
04O||1||3||All those of twenty years old and over, who are able to go to war in Israel, are to be numbered by you and Aaron.
04O||1||4||And to give you help, take one man from every tribe, the head of his father's house.
04O||1||5||These are the names of those who are to be your helpers: from Reuben, Elizur, the son of Shedeur;
04O||1||6||From Simeon, Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai;
04O||1||7||From Judah, Nahshon, the son of Amminadab;
04O||1||8||From Issachar, Nethanel, the son of Zuar;
04O||1||9||From Zebulun, Eliab, the son of Helon;
04O||1||10||Of the children of Joseph: from Ephraim, Elishama, the son of Ammihud; from Manasseh, Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur,
04O||1||11||From Benjamin, Abidan, the son of Gideoni;
04O||1||12||From Dan, Ahiezer, the son of Ammi-shaddai;
04O||1||13||From Asher, Pagiel, the son of Ochran;
04O||1||14||From Gad, Eliasaph, the son of Reuel;
04O||1||15||From Naphtali, Ahira, the son of Enan.
04O||1||16||These are the men named out of all the people, chiefs of their fathers' houses, heads of the tribes of Israel.
04O||1||17||And Moses and Aaron took these men, marked out by name;
04O||1||18||And they got together all the people on the first day of the second month; and everyone made clear his family and his father's house, by the number of the names, from twenty years old and over.
04O||1||19||As the Lord had given orders to Moses, so they were numbered by him in the waste place of Sinai.
04O||1||20||The generations of the sons of Reuben, the oldest son of Israel, were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over, who was able to go to war;
04O||1||21||Forty-six thousand, five hundred of the tribe of Reuben were numbered.
04O||1||22||The generations of the sons of Simeon were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over, who was able to go to war;
04O||1||23||Fifty-nine thousand, three hundred of the tribe of Simeon were numbered.
04O||1||24||The generations of the sons of Gad were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||25||Forty-five thousand, six hundred and fifty of the tribe of Gad were numbered.
04O||1||26||The generations of the sons of Judah were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||27||Seventy-four thousand, six hundred of the tribe of Judah were numbered.
04O||1||28||The generations of the sons of Issachar were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||29||Fifty-four thousand, four hundred of the tribe of Issachar were numbered.
04O||1||30||The generations of the sons of Zebulun were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||31||Fifty-seven thousand, four hundred of the tribe of Zebulun were numbered.
04O||1||32||The generations of the sons of Joseph were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||33||Forty thousand, five hundred of the tribe of Ephraim were numbered.
04O||1||34||The generations of the sons of Manasseh were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||35||Thirty-two thousand, two hundred of the tribe of Manasseh were numbered.
04O||1||36||The generations of the sons of Benjamin were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||37||Thirty-five thousand, four hundred of the tribe of Benjamin were numbered.
04O||1||38||The generations of the sons of Dan were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||39||Sixty-two thousand, seven hundred of the tribe of Dan were numbered.
04O||1||40||The generations of the sons of Asher were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||41||Forty-one thousand, five hundred of the tribe of Asher were numbered.
04O||1||42||The generations of the sons of Naphtali were numbered by their families and their fathers' houses, every male of twenty years old and over who was able to go to war;
04O||1||43||Fifty-three thousand, four hundred of the tribe of Naphtali were numbered.
04O||1||44||These are they who were numbered by Moses and Aaron and by the twelve chiefs of Israel, one from every tribe.
04O||1||45||So all those who were numbered of the children of Israel, by their families, all those of twenty years old and over who were able to go to war,
04O||1||46||Were six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty.
04O||1||47||But the Levites, of the tribe of their fathers, were not numbered among them.
04O||1||48||For the Lord said to Moses,
04O||1||49||Only the tribe of Levi is not to be numbered among the children of Israel,
04O||1||50||But to them you are to give the care of the Tent of meeting with its vessels and everything in it: they are to take up the Tent, and be responsible for everything to do with it, and put up their tents round it.
04O||1||51||And when the Tent of meeting goes forward, the Levites are to take it down; and when it is to be put up, they are to do it: any strange person who comes near it is to be put to death.
04O||1||52||The children of Israel are to put up their tents, every man in his tent-circle round his flag.
04O||1||53||But the tents of the Levites are to be round the Tent of meeting, so that wrath may not come on the children of Israel: the Tent of meeting is to be in the care of the Levites.
04O||1||54||So the children of Israel did as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
04O||2||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||2||2||The children of Israel are to put up their tents in the order of their families, by the flags of their fathers' houses, facing the Tent of meeting on every side.
04O||2||3||Those whose tents are on the east side, looking to the dawn, will be round the flag of the children of Judah, with Nahshon, the son of Amminadab, as their chief.
04O||2||4||The number of his army was seventy-four thousand, six hundred.
04O||2||5||And nearest to him will be the tribe of Issachar, with Nethanel, the son of Zuar, as their chief.
04O||2||6||The number of his army was fifty-four thousand, four hundred.
04O||2||7||After him, the tribe of Zebulun, with Eliab, the son of Helon, as their chief.
04O||2||8||The number of his army was fifty-seven thousand, four hundred.
04O||2||9||The number of all the armies of Judah was a hundred and eighty-six thousand, four hundred. They go forward first.
04O||2||10||On the south side is the flag of the children of Reuben, in the order of their armies, with Elizur, the son of Shedeur, as their chief.
04O||2||11||The number of his army was forty-six thousand, five hundred.
04O||2||12||And nearest to him, the tribe of Simeon, with Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai, as their chief.
04O||2||13||The number of his army was fifty-nine thousand, three hundred.
04O||2||14||Then the tribe of Gad, with Eliasaph, son of Reuel, as their chief.
04O||2||15||The number of his army was forty-five thousand, six hundred and fifty.
04O||2||16||The number of all the armies of Reuben together came to a hundred and fifty-one thousand, four hundred and fifty. They go forward second.
04O||2||17||Then the Tent of meeting is to go forward, with the tents of the Levites, in the middle of the armies; in the same order as their tents are placed, they are to go forward, every man under his flag.
04O||2||18||On the west side will be the flag of the children of Ephraim, with Elishama, the son of Ammihud, as their chief.
04O||2||19||The number of his army was forty thousand, five hundred.
04O||2||20||And by him the tribe of Manasseh with Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur, as their chief.
04O||2||21||The number of his army was thirty-two thousand, two hundred.
04O||2||22||Then the tribe of Benjamin, with Abidan, the son of Gideoni, as their chief.
04O||2||23||The number of his army was thirty-five thousand, four hundred.
04O||2||24||The number of all the armies of Ephraim was a hundred and eight thousand, one hundred. They go forward third.
04O||2||25||On the north side will be the flag of the children of Dan, with Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai, as their chief.
04O||2||26||The number of his army was sixty-two thousand, seven hundred.
04O||2||27||Nearest to him will be the tribe of Asher, with Pagiel, the son of Ochran, as their chief.
04O||2||28||The number of his army was forty-one thousand, five hundred;
04O||2||29||Then the tribe of Naphtali, with Ahira, the son of Enan, as their chief.
04O||2||30||The number of his army was fifty-three thousand, four hundred.
04O||2||31||The number of all the armies in the tents of Dan was a hundred and fifty-seven thousand, six hundred. They will go forward last, by their flags.
04O||2||32||These are all who were numbered of the children of Israel, in the order of their fathers' families: all the armies in their tents together came to six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty.
04O||2||33||But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel, as the Lord said to Moses.
04O||2||34||So the children of Israel did as the Lord said to Moses, so they put up their tents by their flags, and they went forward in the same order, by their families, and by their fathers' houses.
04O||3||1||Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses, in the day when the word of the Lord came to Moses on Mount Sinai.
04O||3||2||These are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the oldest, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
04O||3||3||These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests, on whom the holy oil was put, who were marked out as priests.
04O||3||4||And Nadab and Abihu were put to death before the Lord when they made an offering of strange fire before the Lord, in the waste land of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar did the work of priests before Aaron their father.
04O||3||5||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||3||6||Make the tribe of Levi come near, and put them before Aaron the priest, to be his helpers,
04O||3||7||In order that they may be responsible to him and to all Israel for the care of the Tent of meeting, and to do the work of the House;
04O||3||8||And they will have the care of all the vessels of the Tent of meeting, and will do for the children of Israel all the necessary work of the House.
04O||3||9||Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; so that they may be his without question from among the children of Israel.
04O||3||10||And give orders that Aaron and his sons are to keep their place as priests; any strange person who comes near is to be put to death.
04O||3||11||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||3||12||See, I have taken the Levites out of the children of Israel to be mine in place of the first sons of the children of Israel;
04O||3||13||For all the first sons are mine; on the day when I put to death all the first sons in the land of Egypt, I took for myself every first male birth of man and beast. They are mine; I am the Lord.
04O||3||14||And the Lord said to Moses in the waste land of Sinai,
04O||3||15||Let all the children of Levi be numbered by their families and their fathers' houses; let every male of a month old and over be numbered.
04O||3||16||So Moses did as the Lord said, numbering them as he had been ordered.
04O||3||17||These were the sons of Levi by name: Gershon and Kohath and Merari.
04O||3||18||And these are the names of the sons of Gershon, by their families: Libni and Shimei.
04O||3||19||And the sons of Kohath, by their families: Amram and Izhar and Hebron and Uzziel.
04O||3||20||And the sons of Merari by their families: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites in the order of their fathers' houses.
04O||3||21||From Gershon come the Libnites and the Shimeites; these are the families of the Gershonites.
04O||3||22||Those who were numbered of them, the males from one month old and over, were seven thousand, five hundred.
04O||3||23||The tents of the Gershonites are to be placed at the back of the House, to the west.
04O||3||24||The chief of the Gershonites is Eliasaph, the son of Lael.
04O||3||25||In the Tent of meeting, the Gershonites are to have the care of the House, and the Tent with its cover, and the veil for the door of the Tent of meeting,
04O||3||26||And the hangings for the open space round the House and the altar, and the curtain for its doorway, and all the cords needed for its use.
04O||3||27||From Kohath come the Amramites and the Izharites and the Hebronites and the Uzzielites; these are the families of the Kohathites.
04O||3||28||Those who were numbered of them, the males from one month old and over, were eight thousand, six hundred, who were responsible for the care of the holy place.
04O||3||29||The tents of the Kohathites are to be placed on the south side of the House.
04O||3||30||Their chief is Elizaphan, the son of Uzziel.
04O||3||31||In their care are the ark, and the table, and the lights, and the altars, and all the vessels used in the holy place, and the veil, and all they are used for.
04O||3||32||Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, will be head over all the Levites and overseer of those responsible for the care of the holy place.
04O||3||33||From Merari come the Mahlites and the Mushites; these are the families of Merari.
04O||3||34||Those who were numbered of them, the males of a month old and over, were six thousand, two hundred.
04O||3||35||The chief of the families of Merari was Zuriel, the son of Abihail: their tents are to be placed on the north side of the House.
04O||3||36||And in their care are to be all the boards of the Tent, with their rods and pillars and bases, and all the instruments, and all they are used for,
04O||3||37||And the pillars of the open space round it, with their bases and nails and cords.
04O||3||38||And those whose tents are to be placed on the east side of the House in front of the Tent of meeting, looking to the dawn, are Moses and Aaron and his sons, who will do the work of the holy place for the children of Israel; and any strange person who comes near will be put to death.
04O||3||39||All the Levites numbered by Moses and Aaron at the order of the Lord, all the males of one month old and over numbered in the order of their families, were twenty-two thousand.
04O||3||40||And the Lord said to Moses, Let all the first male children be numbered, and take the number of their names.
04O||3||41||And give to me the Levites (I am the Lord) in place of the first sons of the children of Israel; and the cattle of the Levites in place of the first births among the cattle of the children of Israel.
04O||3||42||So Moses had all the first sons among the children of Israel numbered, as the Lord said to him.
04O||3||43||Every first son from a month old and over was numbered by name, and the number came to twenty-two thousand, two hundred and seventy-three.
04O||3||44||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||3||45||Take the Levites in place of all the first sons of the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites in place of their cattle; the Levites are to be mine; I am the Lord.
04O||3||46||And the price you have to give for the two hundred and seventy-three first sons of the children of Israel which are in addition to the number of the Levites,
04O||3||47||Will be five shekels for every one, by the scale of the holy place (the shekel is twenty gerahs);
04O||3||48||And this money, the price of those over the number of the Levites, is to be given to Aaron and his sons.
04O||3||49||So Moses took the money, the price of those whose place had not been taken by the Levites;
04O||3||50||From the first sons of Israel he took it, a thousand, three hundred and sixty-five shekels, by the scale of the holy place;
04O||3||51||And he gave the money to Aaron and his sons, as the Lord had said.
04O||4||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||4||2||Let the sons of Kohath, from among the sons of Levi, be numbered by their families, in the order of their fathers' houses;
04O||4||3||All those from thirty to fifty years old who are able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.
04O||4||4||And this is to be the work of the sons of Kohath in connection with the most holy things.
04O||4||5||When all the people go forward, Aaron is to go in with his sons, and take down the veil of the curtain, covering the ark of witness with it;
04O||4||6||And putting over it the leather cover and over that a blue cloth; and putting its rods in place.
04O||4||7||And on the table of the holy bread they are to put a blue cloth, and on it all the vessels, the spoons and the basins and the cups; and the holy bread with them;
04O||4||8||And over them they are to put a red cloth, covering it with a leather cover, and putting its rods in their places.
04O||4||9||And they are to take a blue cloth, covering with it the light-support with its lights and its instruments and its trays and all the oil vessels which are used for it:
04O||4||10||All these they are to put in a leather cover, and put it on the frame.
04O||4||11||On the gold altar they are to put a blue cloth, covering it with a leather cover; and they are to put its rods in their places.
04O||4||12||All the vessels which are used in the holy place they are to put in a blue cloth, covering them with a leather cover, and put them on the frame.
04O||4||13||And they are to take away the burned waste from the altar, and put a purple cloth on it;
04O||4||14||Placing on the cloth all its vessels, the fire-baskets, the meat-hooks, the spades, and the basins; all the vessels of the altar; they are to put a leather cover over all these, and put its rods in their places.
04O||4||15||And after the holy place and all its vessels have been covered up by Aaron and his sons, when the tents of the people go forward, the sons of Kohath are to come and take it up; but the holy things may not be touched by them for fear of death.
04O||4||16||And Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, is to be responsible for the oil for the light, and the sweet perfumes for burning, and the regular meal offering, and the holy oil; the House and the holy place and everything in it will be in his care.
04O||4||17||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||4||18||Do not let the family of the Kohathites be cut off from among the Levites;
04O||4||19||But do this to them, so that life and not death may be theirs when they come near the most holy things; let Aaron and his sons go in and give to every one his work and that which he is to take up;
04O||4||20||But they themselves are not to go in to see the holy place, even for a minute, for fear of death.
04O||4||21||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||4||22||Let the sons of Gershon be numbered by families, in the order of their fathers' houses;
04O||4||23||All those from thirty to fifty years old who are able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.
04O||4||24||This is to be the work of the Gershonites, the things they are to do and take up.
04O||4||25||They are to take up the curtains of the House, and the Tent of meeting with its cover and the leather cover over it, and the hangings for the door of the Tent of meeting;
04O||4||26||And the hangings for the open space round the House and the altar, and the curtain for its doorway, with the cords and all the things used for them; whatever is necessary for these, they are to do.
04O||4||27||From the mouth of Aaron and his sons the Gershonites will have word about all the things they are to do and take up; you are to give them their orders.
04O||4||28||This is the work of the family of the Gershonites in the Tent of meeting, and they will be under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.
04O||4||29||The sons of Merari are to be numbered by families, in the order of their fathers' houses;
04O||4||30||Every one from thirty to fifty years old who is able to do the work of the Tent of meeting.
04O||4||31||And this is their part in the work of the Tent of meeting: the transport of the boards and the rods of the Tent, with the pillars and their bases;
04O||4||32||And the pillars of the open space outside it, with their bases and their nails and cords and all the instruments used, and everything which has to be done there; all the instruments for which they are responsible are to be numbered by name.
04O||4||33||This is the work which the sons of Merari are to do in connection with the Tent of meeting, under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.
04O||4||34||So Moses and Aaron and the chiefs of the people took in hand the numbering of the sons of the Kohathites, by families, in the order of their fathers' houses;
04O||4||35||Numbering all those from thirty to fifty years old who were able to do the work in the Tent of meeting;
04O||4||36||And the number of all these was two thousand, seven hundred and fifty.
04O||4||37||This is the number of those of the Kohathites who did the work in the Tent of meeting, as they were numbered by Moses and Aaron at the order of the Lord.
04O||4||38||And those of the sons of Gershon who were numbered by families,
04O||4||39||All those from thirty to fifty years old who were able to do the work in the Tent of meeting,
04O||4||40||Who were numbered by families in the order of their fathers' houses, were two thousand, six hundred and thirty.
04O||4||41||This is the number of the sons of Gershon who did the work in the Tent of meeting, as they were numbered by Moses and Aaron at the order of the Lord.
04O||4||42||And those of the sons of Merari who were numbered by families, in the order of their fathers' houses,
04O||4||43||All those from thirty to fifty years old who did the work in the Tent of meeting,
04O||4||44||Who were numbered by families, were three thousand, two hundred.
04O||4||45||This is the number of the sons of Merari, numbered by Moses and Aaron at the order of the Lord.
04O||4||46||And all the Levites who were numbered by Moses and Aaron and the chiefs of the people, by families, in the order of their fathers' houses,
04O||4||47||Those from thirty to fifty years old who were able to do the work of the Tent of meeting and of its transport,
04O||4||48||Came to eight thousand, five hundred and eighty.
04O||4||49||At the order of the Lord they were numbered by Moses, every one in relation to his work and to his part in the transport; so they were numbered by Moses at the order of the Lord.
04O||5||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||5||2||Give orders to the children of Israel to put outside the tent-circle every leper, and anyone who has any sort of flow from his body, and anyone who is unclean from the touch of the dead;
04O||5||3||Male or female they are to be put outside the tent-circle, so that they may not make unclean my resting-place among them.
04O||5||4||So the children of Israel did as the Lord had said to Moses, and put them outside the tent-circle.
04O||5||5||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||5||6||Say to the children of Israel, If a man or a woman does any of the sins of men, going against the word of the Lord, and is in the wrong;
04O||5||7||Let them say openly what they have done; and make payment for the wrong done, with the addition of a fifth part, and give it to him to whom the wrong was done.
04O||5||8||But if the man has no relation to whom the payment may be made, then the payment for sin made to the Lord will be the priest's, in addition to the sheep offered to take away his sin.
04O||5||9||And every offering lifted up of all the holy things which the children of Israel give to the priest, will be his.
04O||5||10||And every man's holy things will be his: whatever a man gives to the priest will be his.
04O||5||11||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||5||12||Say to the children of Israel, If any man's wife does wrong, sinning against him
04O||5||13||By taking as her lover another man, and keeps it secret so that her husband has no knowledge of it, and there is no witness against her, and she is not taken in the act;
04O||5||14||If the spirit of doubt comes into her husband's heart, and he has doubts of his wife, with good cause; or if he has doubts of her without cause:
04O||5||15||Then let him take her to the priest, offering for her the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal, without oil or perfume; for it is a meal offering of a bitter spirit, a meal offering keeping wrongdoing in mind.
04O||5||16||And the priest will make her come near and put her before the Lord;
04O||5||17||And the priest will take holy water in a pot and put in it dust from the floor of the House;
04O||5||18||And he will make the woman come before the Lord with her hair loose, and will put the meal offering, the offering of a bitter spirit, in her hands; and the priest will take in his hand the bitter water causing the curse;
04O||5||19||And he will make her take an oath, and say to her, If no man has been your lover and you have not been with another in place of your husband, you are free from this bitter water causing the curse;
04O||5||20||But if you have been with another in place of your husband and have made yourself unclean with a lover:
04O||5||21||Then the priest will put the oath of the curse on the woman, and say to her, May the Lord make you a curse and an oath among your people, sending on you wasting of the legs and disease of the stomach;
04O||5||22||And this water of the curse will go into your body, causing disease of your stomach and wasting of your legs: and the woman will say, So be it.
04O||5||23||And the priest will put these curses in a book, washing out the writing with the bitter water;
04O||5||24||And he will give to the woman the bitter water for drink; and the bitter water causing the curse will go into her.
04O||5||25||And the priest will take from her hand the meal offering of doubt, waving it before the Lord, and will take it to the altar;
04O||5||26||And he will take some of it in his hand, burning it on the altar as a sign, and then he will give the woman the bitter water.
04O||5||27||And it will be that if the woman has become unclean, sinning against her husband, when she has taken the bitter water it will go into her body, causing disease of the stomach and wasting of the legs, and she will be a curse among her people.
04O||5||28||But if she is clean she will be free and will have offspring.
04O||5||29||This is the law for testing a wife who goes with another in place of her husband and becomes unclean;
04O||5||30||Or for a husband who, in a bitter spirit, has doubts in his heart about his wife; let him take her to the priest, who will put in force this law.
04O||5||31||Then the man will be free from all wrong, and the woman's sin will be on her.
04O||6||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||6||2||Say to the children of Israel, If a man or a woman takes an oath to keep himself separate and give himself to the Lord;
04O||6||3||He is to keep himself from wine and strong drink, and take no mixed wine or strong drink or any drink made from grapes, or any grapes, green or dry.
04O||6||4||All the time he is separate he may take nothing made from the grape-vine, from its seeds to its skin.
04O||6||5||All the time he is under his oath let no blade come near his head; till the days while he is separate are ended he is holy and his hair may not be cut.
04O||6||6||All the time he is separate he may not come near any dead body.
04O||6||7||He may not make himself unclean for his father or his mother, his sister or his brother, if death comes to them; because he is under an oath to keep himself separate for God.
04O||6||8||All the time he is separate he is holy to the Lord.
04O||6||9||If death comes suddenly to a man at his side, so that he becomes unclean, let his hair be cut off on the day when he is made clean, on the seventh day.
04O||6||10||And on the eighth day let him take to the priest, at the door of the Tent of meeting, two doves or two young pigeons;
04O||6||11||And the priest will give one for a sin-offering and the other for a burned offering to take away the sin which came on him on account of the dead, and he will make his head holy that same day.
04O||6||12||And he will give to the Lord his days of being separate, offering a he-lamb of the first year as an offering for error: but the earlier days will be a loss, because he became unclean.
04O||6||13||And this is the law for him who is separate, when the necessary days are ended: he is to come to the door of the Tent of meeting,
04O||6||14||And make his offering to the Lord; one he-lamb of the first year, without a mark, for a burned offering, and one female lamb of the first year, without a mark, for a sin-offering, and one male sheep, without a mark, for peace-offerings,
04O||6||15||And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of the best meal mixed with oil, and thin unleavened cakes covered with oil, with their meal offering and drink offerings.
04O||6||16||And the priest will take them before the Lord, and make his sin-offering and his burned offering;
04O||6||17||Giving the sheep of the peace-offerings, with the basket of unleavened bread; and at the same time, the priest will make his meal offering and his drink offering.
04O||6||18||Then let his long hair, the sign of his oath, be cut off at the door of the Tent of meeting, and let him put it on the fire on which the peace-offerings are burning.
04O||6||19||And the priest will take the cooked leg of the sheep and one unleavened cake and one thin cake out of the basket, and put them on the hands of the separate one after his hair has been cut,
04O||6||20||Waving them for a wave offering before the Lord; this is holy for the priest, together with the waved breast and the leg which is lifted up; after that, the man may take wine.
04O||6||21||This is the law for him who takes an oath to keep himself separate, and for his offering to the Lord on that account, in addition to what he may be able to get; this is the law of his oath, which he will have to keep.
04O||6||22||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||6||23||Say to Aaron and his sons, These are the words of blessing which are to be used by you in blessing the children of Israel; say to them,
04O||6||24||May the Lord send his blessing on you and keep you:
04O||6||25||May the light of the Lord's face be shining on you in grace:
04O||6||26||May the Lord's approval be resting on you and may he give you peace.
04O||6||27||So they will put my name on the children of Israel, and I will give them my blessing.
04O||7||1||And when Moses had put up the House completely, and had put oil on it and made it holy, with all the things in it, and had made the altar and all its vessels holy with oil;
04O||7||2||Then the chiefs of Israel, the heads of their fathers' houses, made offerings; these were the chiefs of the tribes, who were over those who were numbered.
04O||7||3||And they came with their offerings before the Lord, six covered carts and twelve oxen; a cart for every two of the chiefs, and for every one an ox.
04O||7||4||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||7||5||Take the things from them, to be used for the work of the Tent of meeting; and give them to the Levites, to every man what is needed for his work.
04O||7||6||So Moses took the carts and the oxen and gave them to the Levites.
04O||7||7||Two carts and four oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon for their work;
04O||7||8||And four carts and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari for their work, under the direction of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the priest.
04O||7||9||But to the sons of Kohath he gave nothing; because they had the care of the holy place, taking it about on their backs.
04O||7||10||And the chiefs gave an offering for the altar on the day when the holy oil was put on it; they made their offering before the altar.
04O||7||11||And the Lord said to Moses, Let every chief on his day give his offering to make the altar holy.
04O||7||12||And he who made his offering on the first day was Nahshon, the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah:
04O||7||13||And his offering was one silver plate, a hundred and thirty shekels in weight, one silver basin of seventy shekels, by the scale of the holy place; the two of them full of the best meal mixed with oil for a meal offering;

04O||8||2||Say to Aaron, When you put the lights in their places, the seven lights will give light in front of the support.
04O||8||3||And Aaron did so; he put the lights in their places so that they gave light in front of the support, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
04O||8||4||The support for the lights was of hammered gold work, from its base to its flowers it was of hammered work; from the design which the Lord had given to Moses, he made the support for the lights.
04O||8||5||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||8||6||Take the Levites out from among the children of Israel and make them clean.
04O||8||7||And this is how you are to make them clean: let the holy water which takes away sin be put on them, and let the hair all over their bodies be cut off with a sharp blade, and let their clothing be washed and their bodies made clean.
04O||8||8||Then let them take a young ox and its meal offering, crushed grain mixed with oil, and take another ox for a sin-offering.
04O||8||9||And make the Levites come forward in front of the Tent of meeting, and let all the children of Israel come together:
04O||8||10||And you are to take the Levites before the Lord: and the children of Israel are to put their hands on them:
04O||8||11||And Aaron is to give the Levites to the Lord as a wave offering from the children of Israel, so that they may do the Lord's work.
04O||8||12||And the Levites are to put their hands on the heads of the oxen, and one of the oxen is to be offered for a sin-offering and the other for a burned offering to the Lord to take away the sin of the Levites.
04O||8||13||Then the Levites are to be put before Aaron and his sons, to be offered as a wave offering to the Lord.
04O||8||14||So you are to make the Levites separate from the children of Israel, and the Levites will be mine.
04O||8||15||After that, the Levites will go in to do whatever has to be done in the Tent of meeting; you are to make them clean and give them as a wave offering.
04O||8||16||For they have been given to me from among the children of Israel; in place of every mother's first son, the first to come to birth in Israel, I have taken them for myself.
04O||8||17||For every mother's first son among the children of Israel is mine, the first male birth of man or beast: on the day when I sent death on all the first sons in the land of Egypt, I made them mine.
04O||8||18||And in place of the first sons among the children of Israel, I have taken the Levites.
04O||8||19||And I have given them to Aaron and to his sons, from among the children of Israel, to undertake for them all the work of the Tent of meeting, and to take away sin from the children of Israel so that no evil may come on them when they come near the holy place.
04O||8||20||All these things Moses and Aaron and the children of Israel did to the Levites; as the Lord gave orders to Moses about the Levites, so the children of Israel did.
04O||8||21||And the Levites were made clean from sin, and their clothing was washed, and Aaron gave them for a wave offering before the Lord; and Aaron took away their sin and made them clean.
04O||8||22||And then the Levites went in to do their work in the Tent of meeting before Aaron and his sons: all the orders which the Lord had given Moses about the Levites were put into effect.
04O||8||23||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||8||24||This is the rule for the Levites: those of twenty-five years old and over are to go in and do the work of the Tent of meeting;
04O||8||25||But after they are fifty years old, they are to give up their work and do no more;
04O||8||26||But be with their brothers in the Tent of meeting, taking care of it but doing no work. This is what you are to do in connection with the Levites and their work.
04O||9||1||And the Lord said to Moses, in the waste land of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt,
04O||9||2||Let the children of Israel keep the Passover at its regular time.
04O||9||3||In the fourteenth day of this month, at evening, you are to keep it at the regular time, and in the way ordered in the law.
04O||9||4||And Moses gave orders to the children of Israel to keep the Passover.
04O||9||5||So they kept the Passover in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at evening, in the waste land of Sinai: as the Lord gave orders to Moses, so the children of Israel did.
04O||9||6||And there were certain men who were unclean because of a dead body, so that they were not able to keep the Passover on that day; and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
04O||9||7||And these men said to him, We have been made unclean by the dead body of a man; why may we not make the offering of the Lord at the regular time among the children of Israel?
04O||9||8||And Moses said to them, Do nothing till the Lord gives me directions about you.
04O||9||9||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||9||10||Say to the children of Israel, If any one of you or of your families is unclean because of a dead body, or is on a journey far away, still he is to keep the Passover to the Lord:
04O||9||11||In the second month, on the fourteenth day, in the evening, they are to keep it, taking it with unleavened bread and bitter-tasting plants;
04O||9||12||Nothing of it is to be kept till the morning, and no bone of it is to be broken: they are to keep it by the rules of the Passover.
04O||9||13||But the man who, not being unclean or on a journey, does not keep the Passover, will be cut off from his people: because he did not make the offering of the Lord at the regular time, his sin will be on him.
04O||9||14||And if a man from another country is among you and has a desire to keep the Passover to the Lord, let him do as is ordered in the law of the Passover: there is to be the same rule for the man from another nation and for him who had his birth in the land.
04O||9||15||And on the day when the House was put up, the cloud came down on it, on the Tent of witness; and in the evening there was a light like fire over the House till the morning.
04O||9||16||And so it was at all times: it was covered by the cloud, and by a light as of fire by night.
04O||9||17||And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the House, then the children of Israel went journeying on; and in the place where the cloud came to rest, there the children of Israel put up their tents.
04O||9||18||At the order of the Lord the children of Israel went forward, and at the order of the Lord they put up their tents: as long as the cloud was resting on the House, they did not go away from that place.
04O||9||19||When the cloud was resting on the House for a long time the children of Israel, waiting for the order of the Lord, did not go on.
04O||9||20||Sometimes the cloud was resting on the House for two or three days; then, by the order of the Lord, they kept their tents in that place, and when the Lord gave the order they went on.
04O||9||21||And sometimes the cloud was there only from evening to morning; and when the cloud was taken up in the morning they went on their journey again: or if it was resting there by day and by night, whenever the cloud was taken up they went forward.
04O||9||22||Or if the cloud came to rest on the House for two days or a month or a year without moving, the children of Israel went on waiting there and did not go on; but whenever it was taken up they went forward on their journey.
04O||9||23||At the word of the Lord they put up their tents, and at the word of the Lord they went forward on their journey: they kept the orders of the Lord as he gave them by Moses.
04O||10||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||10||2||Make two silver horns of hammered work, to be used for getting the people together and to give the sign for the moving of the tents.
04O||10||3||When they are sounded, all the people are to come together to you at the door of the Tent of meeting.
04O||10||4||If only one of them is sounded, then the chiefs, the heads of the thousands of Israel, are to come to you.
04O||10||5||When a loud note is sounded, the tents placed on the east side are to go forward.
04O||10||6||At the sound of a second loud note, the tents on the south side are to go forward: the loud note will be the sign to go forward.
04O||10||7||But when all the people are to come together, the horn is to be sounded but not loudly.
04O||10||8||The horns are to be sounded by the sons of Aaron, the priests; this is to be a law for you for ever, from generation to generation.
04O||10||9||And if you go to war in your land against any who do you wrong, then let the loud note of the horn be sounded; and the Lord your God will keep you in mind and give you salvation from those who are against you.
04O||10||10||And on days of joy and on your regular feasts and on the first day of every month, let the horns be sounded over your burned offerings and your peace-offerings; and they will put the Lord in mind of you: I am the Lord your God.
04O||10||11||Now in the second year, on the twentieth day of the second month, the cloud was taken up from over the Tent of witness.
04O||10||12||And the children of Israel went on their journey out of the waste land of Sinai; and the cloud came to rest in the waste land of Paran.
04O||10||13||They went forward for the first time on their journey as the Lord had given orders by the hand of Moses.
04O||10||14||First the flag of the children of Judah went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Nahshon, the son of Amminadab.
04O||10||15||And at the head of the army of the children of Issachar was Nethanel, the son of Zuar.
04O||10||16||And at the head of the army of the children of Zebulun was Eliab, the son of Helon.
04O||10||17||Then the House was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari, who were responsible for moving the House, went forward.
04O||10||18||Then the flag of the children of Reuben went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Elizur, the son of Shedeur.
04O||10||19||And at the head of the army of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai.
04O||10||20||At the head of the army of the children of Gad was Eliasaph, the son of Reuel.
04O||10||21||Then the Kohathites went forward with the holy place; the others put up the House ready for their coming.
04O||10||22||Then the flag of the children of Ephraim went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Elishama, the son of Ammihud.
04O||10||23||At the head of the army of the children of Manasseh was Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur.
04O||10||24||At the head of the army of the children of Benjamin was Abidan, the son of Gideoni.
04O||10||25||And the flag of the children of Dan, whose tents were moved last of all, went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai.
04O||10||26||At the head of the army of the children of Asher was Pagiel, the son of Ochran.
04O||10||27||And at the head of the army of the children of Naphtali was Ahira, the son of Enan.
04O||10||28||This was the order in which the children of Israel were journeying by armies; so they went forward.
04O||10||29||Then Moses said to Hobab, the son of his father-in-law Reuel the Midianite, We are journeying to that place of which the Lord has said, I will give it to you: so come with us, and it will be for your profit: for the Lord has good things in store for Israel.
04O||10||30||But he said, I will not go with you, I will go back to the land of my birth and to my relations.
04O||10||31||And he said, Do not go from us; for you will be eyes for us, guiding us to the right places in the waste land to put up our tents.
04O||10||32||And if you come with us, we will give you a part in whatever good the Lord does for us.
04O||10||33||So they went forward three days' journey from the mountain of the Lord; and the ark of the Lord's agreement went three days' journey before them, looking for a resting-place for them;
04O||10||34||And by day the cloud of the Lord went over them, when they went forward from the place where they had put up their tents.
04O||10||35||And when the ark went forward Moses said, Come up, O Lord, and let the armies of those who are against you be broken, and let your haters go in flight before you.
04O||10||36||And when it came to rest, he said, Take rest, O Lord, and give a blessing to the families of Israel.
04O||11||1||Now the people were saying evil against the Lord; and the Lord, hearing it, was angry and sent fire on them, burning the outer parts of the tent-circle.
04O||11||2||And the people made an outcry to Moses, and Moses made prayer to the Lord, and the fire was stopped.
04O||11||3||So that place was named Taberah, because of the fire of the Lord which had been burning among them.
04O||11||4||And the mixed band of people who went with them were overcome by desire: and the children of Israel, weeping again, said, Who will give us flesh for our food?
04O||11||5||Sweet is the memory of the fish we had in Egypt for nothing, and the fruit and green plants of every sort, sharp and pleasing to the taste:
04O||11||6||But now our soul is wasted away; there is nothing at all: we have nothing but this manna before our eyes.
04O||11||7||Now the manna was like a seed of grain, like small clear drops.
04O||11||8||The people went about taking it up from the earth, crushing it between stones or hammering it to powder, and boiling it in pots, and they made cakes of it: its taste was like the taste of cakes cooked with oil.
04O||11||9||When the dew came down on the tents at night, the manna came down with it.
04O||11||10||And at the sound of the people weeping, every man at his tent-door, the wrath of the Lord was great, and Moses was very angry.
04O||11||11||And Moses said to the Lord, Why have you done me this evil? and why have I not grace in your eyes, that you have put on me the care of all this people?
04O||11||12||Am I the father of all this people? have I given them birth, that you say to me, Take them in your arms, like a child at the breast, to the land which you gave by an oath to their fathers?
04O||11||13||Where am I to get flesh to give to all this people? For they are weeping to me and saying, Give us flesh for our food.
04O||11||14||I am not able by myself to take the weight of all this people, for it is more than my strength.
04O||11||15||If this is to be my fate, put me to death now in answer to my prayer, if I have grace in your eyes; and let me not see my shame.
04O||11||16||And the Lord said to Moses, Send for seventy of the responsible men of Israel, who are in your opinion men of weight and authority over the people; make them come to the Tent of meeting and be there with you.
04O||11||17||And I will come down and have talk with you there: and I will take some of the spirit which is on you and put it on them, and they will take part of the weight of the people off you, so that you do not have to take it by yourself.
04O||11||18||And say to the people, Make yourselves clean before tomorrow and you will have flesh for your food: for in the ears of the Lord you have been weeping and saying, Who will give us flesh for food? for we were well off in Egypt: and so the Lord will give you flesh, and it will be your food;
04O||11||19||Not for one day only, or even for five or ten or twenty days;
04O||11||20||But every day for a month, till you are tired of it, turning from it in disgust: because you have gone against the Lord who is with you, and have been weeping before him saying, Why did we come out of Egypt?
04O||11||21||Then Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand men on foot; and you have said, I will give them flesh to be their food for a month.
04O||11||22||Are flocks and herds to be put to death for them? or are all the fish in the sea to be got together so that they may be full?
04O||11||23||And the Lord said to Moses, Has the Lord's hand become short? Now you will see if my word comes true for you or not.
04O||11||24||And Moses went out and gave the people the words of the Lord: and he took seventy of the responsible men of the people, placing them round the Tent.
04O||11||25||Then the Lord came down in the cloud and had talk with him, and put on the seventy men some of the spirit which was on him: now when the spirit came to rest on them, they were like prophets, but only at that time.
04O||11||26||But two men were still in the tent-circle one of them named Eldad and the other Medad: and the spirit came to rest on them; they were among those who had been sent for, but they had not gone out to the Tent: and the prophet's power came on them in the tent-circle.
04O||11||27||And a young man went running to Moses and said, Eldad and Medad are acting as prophets in the tent-circle.
04O||11||28||Then Joshua, the son of Nun, who had been Moses' servant from the time when he was a child, said, My lord Moses, let them be stopped.
04O||11||29||And Moses said to him, Are you moved by envy on my account? If only all the Lord's people were prophets, and the Lord might put his spirit on them!
04O||11||30||Then Moses, with the responsible men of Israel, went back to the tent-circle.
04O||11||31||Then the Lord sent a wind, driving little birds from the sea, so that they came down on the tents, and all round the tent-circle, about a day's journey on this side and on that, in masses about two cubits high over the face of the earth.
04O||11||32||And all that day and all night and the day after, the people were taking up the birds; the smallest amount which anyone got was ten homers: and they put them out all round the tents.
04O||11||33||But while the meat was still between their teeth, before it was tasted, the wrath of the Lord was moved against the people and he sent a great outburst of disease on them.
04O||11||34||So that place was named Kibroth-hattaavah; because there they put in the earth the bodies of the people who had given way to their desires.
04O||11||35||From Kibroth-hattaavah the people went on to Hazeroth; and there they put up their tents.
04O||12||1||Now Miriam and Aaron said evil against Moses, because of the Cushite woman to whom he was married, for he had taken a Cushite woman as his wife.
04O||12||2||And they said, Have the words of the Lord been given to Moses only? have they not come to us? And the Lord took note of it.
04O||12||3||Now the man Moses was more gentle than any other man on earth.
04O||12||4||And suddenly the Lord said to Moses and Aaron and Miriam, Come out, you three, to the Tent of meeting. And the three of them went out.
04O||12||5||And the Lord came down in a pillar of cloud, taking his place at the door of the Tent, and made Aaron and Miriam come before him.
04O||12||6||And he said, Now give ear to my words: if there is a prophet among you I will give him knowledge of myself in a vision and will let my words come to him in a dream.
04O||12||7||My servant Moses is not so; he is true to me in all my house:
04O||12||8||With him I will have talk mouth to mouth, openly and not in dark sayings; and with his eyes he will see the form of the Lord: why then had you no fear of saying evil against my servant Moses?
04O||12||9||And burning with wrath against them, the Lord went away.
04O||12||10||And the cloud was moved from over the Tent; and straight away Miriam became a leper, as white as snow: and Aaron, looking at Miriam, saw that she was a leper.
04O||12||11||Then Aaron said to Moses, O my lord, let not our sin be on our heads, for we have done foolishly and are sinners.
04O||12||12||Let her not be as one dead, whose flesh is half wasted when he comes out from the body of his mother.
04O||12||13||And Moses, crying to the Lord, said, Let my prayer come before you, O God, and make her well.
04O||12||14||And the Lord said to Moses, If her father had put a mark of shame on her, would she not be shamed for seven days? Let her be shut up outside the tent-circle for seven days, and after that she may come in again.
04O||12||15||So Miriam was shut up outside the tent-circle for seven days: and the people did not go forward on their journey till Miriam had come in again.
04O||12||16||After that, the people went on from Hazeroth and put up their tents in the waste land of Paran.
04O||13||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||13||2||Send men to get knowledge about the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel; from every tribe of their fathers you are to send a man, every one a chief among them.
04O||13||3||And Moses sent them from the waste land of Paran as the Lord gave orders, all of them men who were heads of the children of Israel.
04O||13||4||And these were their names: of the tribe of Reuben, Shammua, the son of Zaccur.
04O||13||5||Of the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat, the son of Hori.
04O||13||6||Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb, the son of Jephunneh.
04O||13||7||Of the tribe of Issachar, Igal, the son of Joseph.
04O||13||8||Of the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea, the son of Nun.
04O||13||9||Of the tribe of Benjamin, Palti, the son of Raphu.
04O||13||10||Of the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel, the son of Sodi.
04O||13||11||Of the tribe of Joseph, that is of the family of Manasseh, Gaddi, the son of Susi.
04O||13||12||Of the tribe of Dan, Ammiel, the son of Gemalli.
04O||13||13||Of the tribe of Asher, Sethur, the son of Michael
04O||13||14||Of the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi, the son of Vophsi.
04O||13||15||Of the tribe of Gad, Gevel, the son of Machi.
04O||13||16||These are the names of the men whom Moses sent to get knowledge about the land. And Moses gave to Hoshea, the son of Nun, the name of Joshua.
04O||13||17||So Moses sent them to have a look at the land of Canaan, and said to them, Go up into the South and into the hill-country;
04O||13||18||And see what the land is like; and if the people living in it are strong or feeble, small or great in number;
04O||13||19||And what sort of land they are living in, if it is good or bad; and what their living-places are, tent-circles or walled towns;
04O||13||20||And if the land is fertile or poor, and if there is wood in it or not. And be of good heart, and come back with some of the produce of the land. Now it was the time when the first grapes were ready.
04O||13||21||So they went up and got a view of the land, from the waste land of Zin to Rehob, on the way to Hamath.
04O||13||22||They went up into the South and came to Hebron; and Ahiman and Sheshai and Talmai, the children of Anak, were living there. (Now the building of Hebron took place seven years before that of Zoan in Egypt.)
04O||13||23||And they came to the valley of Eshcol, and cutting down a vine-branch with its grapes, two of them took it on a rod between them; and they took some pomegranates and figs.
04O||13||24||That place was named the valley of Eshcol because of the grapes which the children of Israel took from there.
04O||13||25||At the end of forty days they came back from viewing the land.
04O||13||26||And they came back to Moses and Aaron and all the children of Israel, to Kadesh in the waste land of Paran; and gave an account to them and to all the people and let them see the produce of the land.
04O||13||27||And they said, We came to the land where you sent us, and truly it is flowing with milk and honey: and here is some of the produce of it.
04O||13||28||But the people living in the land are strong, and the towns are walled and very great; further, we saw the children of Anak there.
04O||13||29||And the Amalekites are in the South; and the Hittites and the Jebusites and the Amorites are living in the hill-country; and the Canaanites by the sea and by the side of Jordan.
04O||13||30||Then Caleb made signs to the people to keep quiet, and said to Moses, Let us go up straight away and take this land; for we are well able to overcome it.
04O||13||31||But the men who had gone up with him said, We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.
04O||13||32||And they gave the children of Israel a bad account of the land they had been to see, saying, This land through which we went is a land causing destruction to those living in it; and all the people we saw there are men of more than common size.
04O||13||33||There we saw those great men, the sons of Anak, offspring of the Nephilim: and we seemed to ourselves no more than insects, and so we seemed to them.
04O||14||1||Then all the people gave load cries of grief, and all that night they gave themselves up to weeping.
04O||14||2||And all the children of Israel, crying out against Moses and Aaron, said, If only we had come to our death in the land of Egypt, or even in this waste land!
04O||14||3||Why is the Lord taking us into this land to come to our death by the sword? Our wives and our little ones will get into strange hands: would it not be better for us to go back to Egypt?
04O||14||4||And they said to one another, Let us make a captain over us, and go back to Egypt.
04O||14||5||Then Moses and Aaron went down on their faces before the meeting of the people.
04O||14||6||And Joshua, the son of Nun, and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, two of those who had been to see the land, giving signs of grief,
04O||14||7||Said to all the children of Israel, This land which we went through to see is a very good land.
04O||14||8||And if the Lord has delight in us, he will take us into this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
04O||14||9||Only, do not go against the Lord or go in fear of the people of the land, for they will be our food; their strength has been taken from them and the Lord is with us: have no fear of them.
04O||14||10||But all the people said they were to be stoned. Then the glory of the Lord was seen in the Tent of meeting, before the eyes of all the children of Israel.
04O||14||11||And the Lord said to Moses, How long will this people have no respect for me? how long will they be without faith, in the face of all the signs I have done among them?
04O||14||12||I will send disease on them for their destruction, and take away their heritage, and I will make of you a nation greater and stronger than they.
04O||14||13||And Moses said to the Lord, Then it will come to the ears of the Egyptians; for by your power you took this people out from among them;
04O||14||14||And they will give the news to the people of this land: they have had word that you, Lord, are present with this people, letting yourself be seen face to face, and that your cloud is resting over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.
04O||14||15||Now if you put to death all this people as one man, then the nations who have had word of your glory will say,
04O||14||16||Because the Lord was not able to take this people into the land which he made an oath to give them, he sent destruction on them in the waste land.
04O||14||17||So now, may my prayer come before you, and let the power of the Lord be great, as you said:
04O||14||18||The Lord is slow to wrath and great in mercy, overlooking wrongdoing and evil, and will not let wrongdoers go free; sending punishment on children for the sins of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation.
04O||14||19||May the sin of this people have forgiveness, in the measure of your great mercy, as you have had mercy on them from Egypt up till now.
04O||14||20||And the Lord said, I have had mercy, as you say:
04O||14||21||But truly, as I am living, and as all the earth will be full of the glory of the Lord;
04O||14||22||Because all these men, having seen my glory and the signs which I have done in Egypt and in the waste land, still have put me to the test ten times, and have not given ear to my voice;
04O||14||23||They will not see the land about which I made an oath to their fathers; not one of these by whom I have not been honoured will see it.
04O||14||24||But my servant Caleb, because he had a different spirit in him, and has been true to me with all his heart, him I will take into that land into which he went, and his seed will have it for their heritage.
04O||14||25||Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites are in the valley; tomorrow, turning round, go into the waste land by the way to the Red Sea.
04O||14||26||Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||14||27||How long am I to put up with this evil people and their outcries against me? The words which they say against me have come to my ears.
04O||14||28||Say to them, By my life, says the Lord, as certainly as your words have come to my ears, so certainly will I do this to you:
04O||14||29||Your dead bodies will be stretched out in this waste land; and of all your number, all those of twenty years old and over who have been crying out against me,
04O||14||30||Not one will come into the land which I gave my word you would have for your resting-place, but only Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, the son of Nun.
04O||14||31||And your little ones, whom you said would come into strange hands, I will take in, and they will see the land which you would not have.
04O||14||32||But as for you, your dead bodies will be stretched in this waste land.
04O||14||33||And your children will be wanderers in the waste land for forty years, undergoing punishment for your false ways, till your bodies become dust in the waste land.
04O||14||34||And as you went through the land viewing it for forty days, so for forty years, a year for every day, you will undergo punishment for your wrongdoing, and you will see that I am against you.
04O||14||35||I the Lord have said it, and this I will certainly do to all this evil people who have come together against me: in this waste land destruction will come on them, and death will be their fate.
04O||14||36||And the men whom Moses sent to see the land, and who, by the bad account they gave of the land, were the cause of the outcry the people made against Moses,
04O||14||37||Those same men who said evil of the land, came to their death by disease before the Lord.
04O||14||38||But Joshua, the son of Nun, and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, of those who went to see the land, were not touched by disease.
04O||14||39||And when Moses put these words before the children of Israel, the people were full of grief.
04O||14||40||And early in the morning they got up and went to the top of the mountain, saying, We are here and we will go up to the place which the Lord said he would give us: for we have done wrong.
04O||14||41||And Moses said, Why are you now acting against the Lord's order, seeing that no good will come of it?
04O||14||42||Go not up, for the Lord is not with you, and you will be overcome by those who are fighting against you.
04O||14||43||For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you will be put to death by their swords: because you have gone back from the way of the Lord, the Lord will not be with you.
04O||14||44||But they gave no attention to his words and went to the top of the mountain, though Moses and the ark of the Lord's agreement did not go out of the tent-circle.
04O||14||45||Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites who were living in the hill-country, and overcame them completely, driving them back as far as Hormah.
04O||15||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||15||2||Say to the children of Israel, When you have come into the land which I am giving to you for your resting-place,
04O||15||3||And are going to make an offering by fire to the Lord, a burned offering or an offering in connection with an oath, or an offering freely given, or at your regular feasts, an offering for a sweet smell to the Lord, from the herd or the flock:
04O||15||4||Then let him who is making his offering, give to the Lord a meal offering of a tenth part of a measure of the best meal mixed with a fourth part of a hin of oil:
04O||15||5||And for the drink offering, you are to give with the burned offering or other offering, the fourth part of a hin of wine for every lamb.
04O||15||6||Or for a male sheep, give as a meal offering two tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with a third part of a hin of oil:
04O||15||7||And for the drink offering give a third part of a hin of wine, for a sweet smell to the Lord.
04O||15||8||And when you make ready a young ox for a burned or other offering, or for the effecting of an oath, or for peace-offerings to the Lord:
04O||15||9||Then with the ox give a meal offering of three tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with half a hin of oil.
04O||15||10||And for the drink offering: give half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord.
04O||15||11||This is to be done for every young ox and for every male sheep or he-lamb or young goat.
04O||15||12||Whatever number you make ready, so you are to do for every one.
04O||15||13||All those who are Israelites by birth are to do these things in this way, when giving an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord.
04O||15||14||And if a man from another country or any other person living among you, through all your generations, has the desire to give an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord, let him do as you do.
04O||15||15||There is to be one law for you and for the man of another country living with you, one law for ever from generation to generation; as you are, so is he to be before the Lord.
04O||15||16||The law and the rule are to be the same for you and for those from other lands living with you.
04O||15||17||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||15||18||Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land where I am guiding you,
04O||15||19||Then, when you take for your food the produce of the land, you are to give an offering lifted up before the Lord.
04O||15||20||Of the first of your rough meal you are to give a cake for a lifted offering, lifting it up before the Lord as the offering of the grain-floor is lifted up.
04O||15||21||From generation to generation you are to give to the Lord a lifted offering from the first of your rough meal.
04O||15||22||And if in error you go against any of these laws which the Lord has given to Moses,
04O||15||23||All the laws which the Lord has given you by the hand of Moses, from the day when the Lord gave them, and ever after from generation to generation;
04O||15||24||Then, if the wrong is done in error, without the knowledge of the meeting of the people, let all the meeting give a young ox as a burned offering, a sweet smell to the Lord, with its meal offering and its drink offering, as is ordered in the law, together with a he-goat for a sin-offering.
04O||15||25||So the priest will make the people free from sin, and they will have forgiveness; for it was an error, and they have given their offering made by fire to the Lord, and their sin-offering before the Lord, on account of their error:
04O||15||26||And all the meeting of the children of Israel, as well as those from other lands living among them, will have forgiveness; for it was an error on the part of the people.
04O||15||27||And if one person does wrong, without being conscious of it, then let him give a she-goat of the first year for a sin-offering.
04O||15||28||And the priest will take away the sin of the person who has done wrong, if the wrong was done unconsciously, and he will have forgiveness.
04O||15||29||The law in connection with wrong done unconsciously is to be the same for him who is an Israelite by birth and for the man from another country who is living among them.
04O||15||30||But the person who does wrong in the pride of his heart, if he is one of you or of another nation by birth, is acting without respect for the Lord, and will be cut off from his people.
04O||15||31||Because he had no respect for the word of the Lord, and did not keep his law, that man will be cut off without mercy and his sin will be on him.
04O||15||32||Now while the children of Israel were in the waste land, they saw a man who was getting sticks on the Sabbath day.
04O||15||33||And those who saw him getting sticks took him before Moses and Aaron and all the people.
04O||15||34||And they had him shut up, because they had no directions about what was to be done with him.
04O||15||35||Then the Lord said to Moses, Certainly the man is to be put to death: let him be stoned by all the people outside the tent-circle.
04O||15||36||So all the people took him outside the tent-circle and he was stoned to death there, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
04O||15||37||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||15||38||Say to the children of Israel that through all their generations they are to put on the edges of their robes an ornament of twisted threads, and in every ornament a blue cord;
04O||15||39||So that, looking on these ornaments, you may keep in mind the orders of the Lord and do them; and not be guided by the desires of your hearts and eyes, through which you have been untrue to me:
04O||15||40||And that you may keep in mind all my orders and do them and be holy to your God.
04O||15||41||I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be your God: I am the Lord your God.
04O||16||1||Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Pallu, the son of Reuben, made themselves ready,
04O||16||2||And came before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty chiefs of the people, men of good name who had a place in the meeting of the people.
04O||16||3||They came together against Moses and against Aaron, and said to them, You take overmuch on yourselves, seeing that all the people are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them; why then have you put yourselves in authority over the people of the Lord?
04O||16||4||And Moses, hearing this, went down on his face;
04O||16||5||And he said to Korah and his band, In the morning the Lord will make clear who are his, and who is holy, and who may come near him: the man of his selection will be caused to come near him.
04O||16||6||So do this: let Korah and all his band take vessels for burning perfumes;
04O||16||7||And put spices on the fire in them before the Lord tomorrow; then the man marked out by the Lord will be holy: you take overmuch on yourselves, you sons of Levi.
04O||16||8||And Moses said to Korah, Give ear now, you sons of Levi:
04O||16||9||Does it seem only a small thing to you that the God of Israel has made you separate from the rest of Israel, letting you come near himself to do the work of the House of the Lord, and to take your place before the people to do what has to be done for them;
04O||16||10||Letting you, and all your brothers the sons of Levi, come near to him? and would you now be priests?
04O||16||11||So you and all your band have come together against the Lord; and Aaron, who is he, that you are crying out against him?
04O||16||12||Then Moses sent for Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: and they said, We will not come up:
04O||16||13||Is it not enough that you have taken us from a land flowing with milk and honey, to put us to death in the waste land, but now you are desiring to make yourself a chief over us?
04O||16||14||And more than this, you have not taken us into a land flowing with milk and honey, or given us a heritage of fields and vine-gardens: will you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up.
04O||16||15||Then Moses was very angry, and said to the Lord, Give no attention to their offering: not one of their asses have I taken, or done wrong to any of them.
04O||16||16||And Moses said to Korah, You and all your band are to come before the Lord tomorrow, you and they and Aaron:
04O||16||17||And let every man take a vessel for burning perfumes, and put sweet spices in them; let every man take his vessel before the Lord, two hundred and fifty vessels; you and Aaron and everyone with his vessel.
04O||16||18||So every man took his vessel and they put fire in them, with spices, and came to the door of the Tent of meeting with Moses and Aaron.
04O||16||19||And Korah made all the people come together against them to the door of the Tent of meeting: and the glory of the Lord was seen by all the people.
04O||16||20||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||16||21||Come out from among this people, so that I may send sudden destruction on them.
04O||16||22||Then falling down on their faces they said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, because of one man's sin will your wrath be moved against all the people?
04O||16||23||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||16||24||Say to the people, Come away from the tent of Korah Dathan, and Abiram.
04O||16||25||So Moses got up and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the responsible men of Israel went with him.
04O||16||26||And he said to the people, Come away now from the tents of these evil men, without touching anything of theirs, or you may be taken in the punishment of their sins.
04O||16||27||So on every side they went away from the tent of Korah Dathan, and Abiram: and Dathan and Abiram came out to the door of their tents, with their wives and their sons and their little ones.
04O||16||28||And Moses said, Now you will see that the Lord has sent me to do all these works, and I have not done them of myself.
04O||16||29||If these men have the common death of men, or if the natural fate of all men overtakes them, then the Lord has not sent me.
04O||16||30||But if the Lord does something new, opening the earth to take them in, with everything which is theirs, and they go down living into the underworld, then it will be clear to you that the Lord has not been honoured by these men.
04O||16||31||And while these words were on his lips, the earth under them was parted in two;
04O||16||32||And the earth, opening her mouth, took them in, with their families, and all the men who were joined to Korah, and their goods.
04O||16||33||So they and all theirs went down living into the underworld, and the earth was shut over them, and they were cut off from among the meeting of the people.
04O||16||34||And all Israel round about them went in flight at their cry, For fear, said they, that we go down into the heart of the earth.
04O||16||35||Then fire came out from the Lord, burning up the two hundred and fifty men who were offering the perfume.
04O||16||36||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||16||37||Say to Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, that he is to take out of the flames the vessels with the perfumes in them, turning the fire out of them, for they are holy;
04O||16||38||And let the vessels of those men, who with their lives have made payment for their sin, be hammered out into plates as a cover for the altar; for they have been offered before the Lord and are holy; so that they may be a sign to the children of Israel.
04O||16||39||So Eleazar the priest took the brass vessels which had been offered by those who were burned up, and they were hammered out to make a cover for the altar:
04O||16||40||To be a sign, kept in memory for ever by the children of Israel, that no man who is not of the seed of Aaron has the right of burning spices before the Lord, so that he may not be like Korah and his band: as the Lord said to him by the mouth of Moses.
04O||16||41||But on the day after, all the children of Israel made an outcry against Moses and against Aaron, saying, You have put to death the Lord's people.
04O||16||42||Now when the people had come together against Moses and Aaron, looking in the direction of the Tent of meeting, they saw the cloud covering it, and the glory of the Lord came before their eyes.
04O||16||43||Then Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of meeting.
04O||16||44||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||16||45||Come out from among this people, so that I may send sudden destruction on them. And they went down on their faces.
04O||16||46||And Moses said to Aaron, Take your vessel and put in it fire from the altar, and sweet spices, and take it quickly into the meeting of the people, and make them free from sin: for wrath has gone out from the Lord, and the disease is starting.
04O||16||47||And at the words of Moses, Aaron took his vessel, and went running among the people; and even then the disease had made a start among them; and he put spices in his vessel to take away the sin of the people.
04O||16||48||And he took his place between the dead and the living: and the disease was stopped.
04O||16||49||Now fourteen thousand, seven hundred deaths were caused by that disease, in addition to those who came to their end because of what Korah had done.
04O||16||50||Then Aaron went back to Moses to the door of the Tent of meeting: and the disease came to a stop.
04O||17||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||17||2||Say to the children of Israel that they are to give you rods, one for every family, for every chief, the head of his father's house, making twelve rods; let every man's name be placed on his rod.
04O||17||3||And let Aaron's name be placed on the rod of Levi: for there is to be one rod for the head of every family.
04O||17||4||And let them be stored up in the Tent of meeting, in front of the ark of witness where I come to you.
04O||17||5||And the rod of that man who is marked out by me for myself will have buds on it; so I will put a stop to the outcries which the children of Israel make to me against you.
04O||17||6||So Moses gave these orders to the children of Israel, and all their chiefs gave him rods, one for the head of every family, making twelve rods: and Aaron's rod was among them.
04O||17||7||And Moses put the rods before the Lord in the Tent of witness.
04O||17||8||Now on the day after, Moses went into the Tent of witness; and he saw that Aaron's rod, the rod of the house of Levi, had put out buds, and was covered with buds and flowers and fruit.
04O||17||9||Then Moses took out all the rods from before the Lord, and gave them back to the children of Israel: and they saw them, and every man took his rod.
04O||17||10||And the Lord said to Moses, Put Aaron's rod back in front of the ark of witness, to be kept for a sign against this false-hearted people, so that you may put a stop to their outcries against me, and death may not overtake them.
04O||17||11||This Moses did: as the Lord gave orders, so he did.
04O||17||12||And the children of Israel said to Moses, Truly, destruction has come on us; an evil fate has overtaken us all.
04O||17||13||Death will overtake everyone who comes near, who comes near the House of the Lord: are we all to come to destruction?
04O||18||1||And the Lord said to Aaron, You and your sons and your father's family are to be responsible for all wrongdoing in relation to the holy place: and you and your sons are to be responsible for the errors which come about in your work as priests.
04O||18||2||Let your brothers, the family of Levi, come near with you, so that they may be joined with you and be your servants: but you and your sons with you are to go in before the ark of witness.
04O||18||3||They are to do your orders and be responsible for the work of the Tent; but they may not come near the vessels of the holy place or the altar, so that death may not overtake them or you.
04O||18||4||They are to be joined with you in the care of the Tent of meeting, doing whatever is needed for the Tent: and no one of any other family may come near you.
04O||18||5||You are to be responsible for the holy place and the altar, so that wrath may never again come on the children of Israel.
04O||18||6||Now, see, I have taken your brothers the Levites from among the children of Israel: they are given to you and to the Lord, to do the work of the Tent of meeting.
04O||18||7||And you and your sons with you are to be responsible as priests for the altar and everything on it, and everything inside the veil; you are to do the work of priests; I have given you your position as priests; and any other man who comes near will be put to death.
04O||18||8||And the Lord said to Aaron, See, I have given into your care my lifted offerings; even all the holy things of the children of Israel I have given to you and to your sons as your right for ever, because you have been marked with the holy oil.
04O||18||9||This is to be yours of the most holy things, out of the fire offerings; every offering of theirs, every meal offering and sin-offering, and every offering which they make on account of error, is to be most holy for you and your sons.
04O||18||10||As most holy things they are to be your food: let every male have them for food; it is to be holy to you.
04O||18||11||And this is yours: the lifted offering which they give and all the wave offerings of the children of Israel I have given to you and to your sons and to your daughters as your right for ever: everyone in your house who is clean may have them for food.
04O||18||12||All the best of the oil and the wine and the grain, the first-fruits of them which they give to the Lord, to you have I given them.
04O||18||13||The earliest produce from their land which they take to the Lord is to be yours; everyone in your house who is clean may have it for his food.
04O||18||14||Everything given by oath to the Lord in Israel is to be yours.
04O||18||15||The first birth of every living thing which is offered to the Lord, of man or beast, is to be yours; but for the first sons of man payment is to be made, and for the first young of unclean beasts.
04O||18||16||Payment is to be made for these when they are a month old, at the value fixed by you, a price of five shekels by the scale of the holy place, that is, twenty gerahs to the shekel.
04O||18||17||But no such payment may be made for the first birth of an ox or a sheep or a goat; these are holy: their blood is to be dropped on the altar, and their fat burned for an offering made by fire, a sweet smell to the Lord.
04O||18||18||Their flesh is to be yours; like the breast of the wave offering and the right leg, it is to be yours.
04O||18||19||All the lifted offerings of the holy things which the children of Israel give to the Lord, I have given to you and to your sons and to your daughters as a right for ever. This is an agreement made with salt before the Lord, to you and to your seed for ever.
04O||18||20||And the Lord said to Aaron, You will have no heritage in their land, or any part among them; I am your part and your heritage among the children of Israel.
04O||18||21||And to the children of Levi I have given as their heritage all the tenths offered in Israel, as payment for the work they do, the work of the Tent of meeting.
04O||18||22||In future the children of Israel are not to come near the Tent of meeting, so that death may not come to them because of sin.
04O||18||23||But the Levites are to do the work of the Tent of meeting, and be responsible for errors in connection with it: this is a law for ever through all your generations; and among the children of Israel they will have no heritage.
04O||18||24||For the tenths which the children of Israel give as a lifted offering to the Lord I have given to the Levites as their heritage. and so I have said to them, Among the children of Israel they will have no heritage.
04O||18||25||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||18||26||Say to the Levites, When you take from the children of Israel the tenth which I have given to you from them as your heritage, a tenth part of that tenth is to be offered as an offering lifted up before the Lord.
04O||18||27||And this lifted offering is to be put to your credit as if it was grain from the grain-floor and wine from the vines.
04O||18||28||So you are to make an offering lifted up to the Lord from all the tenths which you get from the children of Israel, giving out of it the Lord's lifted offering to Aaron the priest.
04O||18||29||From everything given to you, let the best of it, the holy part of it, be offered as a lifted offering to the Lord.
04O||18||30||Say to them, then, When the best of it is lifted up on high, it is to be put to the account of the Levites as the increase of the grain-floor and of the place where the grapes are crushed.
04O||18||31||It is to be your food, for you and your families in every place: it is your reward for your work in the Tent of meeting.
04O||18||32||And no sin will be yours on account of it, when the best of it has been lifted up on high; you are not to make a wrong use of the holy things of the children of Israel, so that death may not overtake you.
04O||19||1||And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||19||2||This is the rule of the law which the Lord has made, saying, Give orders to the children of Israel to give you a red cow without any mark on her, and on which the yoke has never been put:
04O||19||3||Give her to Eleazar the priest and let him take her outside the tent-circle and have her put to death before him.
04O||19||4||Then let Eleazar the priest take some of her blood on his finger, shaking the blood seven times in the direction of the front of the Tent of meeting:
04O||19||5||And the cow is to be burned before him, her skin and her flesh and her blood and her waste are to be burned:
04O||19||6||Then let the priest take cedar-wood and hyssop and red thread, and put them into the fire where the cow is burning.
04O||19||7||And the priest, after washing his clothing and bathing his body in water, may come back to the tent-circle, and will be unclean till evening.
04O||19||8||And he who does the burning is to have his clothing washed and his body bathed in water and be unclean till evening.
04O||19||9||Then let a man who is clean take the dust of the burned cow and put it outside the tent-circle in a clean place, where it is to be kept for the children of Israel and used in making the water which takes away what is unclean: it is a sin-offering.
04O||19||10||And he who takes up the dust of the burned cow is to have his clothing washed with water and be unclean till evening: this is to be a law for ever, for the children of Israel as well as for the man from another country who is living among them.
04O||19||11||Anyone touching a dead body will be unclean for seven days:
04O||19||12||On the third day and on the seventh day he is to make himself clean with the water, and so he will be clean: but if he does not do this on the third day and on the seventh day, he will not be clean.
04O||19||13||Anyone touching the body of a dead man without making himself clean in this way, makes the House of the Lord unclean; and that man will be cut off from Israel: because the water was not put on him, he will be unclean; his unclean condition is unchanged.
04O||19||14||This is the law when death comes to a man in his tent: everyone who comes into the tent, and everyone who is in the tent, will be unclean for seven days.
04O||19||15||And every open vessel without a cover fixed on it will be unclean.
04O||19||16||And anyone touching one who has been put to death with the sword in the open country, or the body of one who has come to his end by a natural death, or a man's bone, or the resting-place of a dead body, will be unclean for seven days.
04O||19||17||And for the unclean, they are to take the dust of the burning of the sin-offering, and put flowing water on it in a vessel:
04O||19||18||And a clean person is to take hyssop and put it in the water, shaking it over the tent, and all the vessels, and the people who were there, and over him by whom the bone, or the body of one who has been put to death with the sword, or the body of one who has come to his end by a natural death, or the resting-place was touched.
04O||19||19||Let the clean person do this to the unclean on the third day and on the seventh day: and on the seventh day he is to make him clean; and after washing his clothing and bathing himself in water, he will be clean in the evening.
04O||19||20||But the man who, being unclean, does not make himself clean in this way, will be cut off from the meeting of the people, because he has made the holy place of the Lord unclean: the water has not been put on him, he is unclean.
04O||19||21||This is to be a law for them for ever: he who puts the water on the unclean person is to have his clothing washed; and anyone touching the water will be unclean till evening.
04O||19||22||Anything touched by the unclean person will be unclean; and any person touching it will be unclean till evening.
04O||20||1||In the first month all the children of Israel came into the waste land of Zin, and put up their tents in Kadesh; there death came to Miriam, and they put her body to rest in the earth.
04O||20||2||And there was no water for the people: and they came together against Moses and against Aaron.
04O||20||3||And the people were angry with Moses and said, If only death had overtaken us when our brothers came to their death before the Lord!
04O||20||4||Why have you taken the Lord's people into this waste, for death to come to us and to our cattle there?
04O||20||5||Why have you made us come out of Egypt into this evil place? This is no place of seed or figs or vines or other fruits, and there is no water for drinking.
04O||20||6||Then Moses and Aaron went away from the people to the door of the Tent of meeting; and, falling on their faces there, they saw the glory of the Lord.
04O||20||7||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||20||8||Take the rod, you and Aaron, your brother, and make all the people come together, and before their eyes give orders to the rock to give out its water; and so make water come out of the rock for them, and give the people and their cattle drink.
04O||20||9||And Moses took the rod from before the Lord as he gave him orders.
04O||20||10||Then Moses and Aaron made the people come together in front of the rock, and he said to them, Give ear now, you people whose hearts are turned from the Lord; are we to get water for you out of the rock?
04O||20||11||And lifting up his hand, Moses gave the rock two blows with his rod: and water came streaming out, and the people and their cattle had drink enough.
04O||20||12||Then the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Because you had not enough faith in me to keep my name holy before the children of Israel, you will not take this people into the land which I have given them.
04O||20||13||These are the waters of Meribah; because the children of Israel went against the Lord, and they saw that he was holy among them.
04O||20||14||Then Moses sent men from Kadesh to the king of Edom to say to him, Your brother Israel says, You have knowledge of all the things we have been through;
04O||20||15||How our fathers went down into Egypt, and we were living in Egypt for a long time; and the Egyptians were cruel to us and to our fathers:
04O||20||16||And the Lord gave ear to the voice of our cry, and sent an angel and took us out of Egypt: and now we are in Kadesh, a town on the edge of your land;
04O||20||17||Let us now go through your land: we will not go into field or vine-garden, or take the water of the springs; we will go by the highway, not turning to the right or to the left, till we have gone past the limits of your land.
04O||20||18||And Edom said, You are not to go through my land, for if you do I will come out against you with the sword.
04O||20||19||And the children of Israel said to him, We will go up by the highway: and if we or our cattle take of your water, we will give you a price for it: only let us go through on our feet, nothing more.
04O||20||20||But he said, You are not to go through. And Edom came out against them in his strength, with a great army.
04O||20||21||So Edom would not let Israel go through his land; and Israel went in another direction.
04O||20||22||And they went on from Kadesh, and came, with all their people, to Mount Hor.
04O||20||23||And at Mount Hor, at the edge of the land of Edom, the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,
04O||20||24||Aaron will be put to rest with his people; he will not go into the land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you went against my word at the waters of Meribah.
04O||20||25||So take Aaron and Eleazar, his son, up into Mount Hor;
04O||20||26||And take Aaron's robes off him and put them on Eleazar, his son: and death will come to Aaron there, and he will be put to rest with his people.
04O||20||27||So Moses did as the Lord had said, and before the eyes of all the people they went up Mount Hor.
04O||20||28||And Moses took off Aaron's robes, and put them on Eleazar, his son; and there on the top of the mountain death came to Aaron: then Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain.
04O||20||29||And when the people saw that Aaron was dead, all the children of Israel gave themselves up to weeping for him for thirty days.
04O||21||1||And it came to the ears of the Canaanite, the king of Arad, living in the South, that Israel was coming by the way of Atharim, and he came out against them and took some of them prisoners.
04O||21||2||Then Israel made an oath to the Lord, and said, If you will give up this people into my hands, then I will send complete destruction on all their towns.
04O||21||3||And the Lord, in answer to the voice of Israel, gave the Canaanites up to them; and they put them and their towns completely to destruction: and that place was named Hormah.
04O||21||4||Then they went on from Mount Hor by the way to the Red Sea, going round the land of Edom: and the spirit of the people was overcome with weariness on the way.
04O||21||5||And crying out against God and against Moses, they said, Why have you taken us out of Egypt to come to our death in the waste land? For there is no bread and no water, and this poor bread is disgusting to us.
04O||21||6||Then the Lord sent poison-snakes among the people; and their bites were a cause of death to numbers of the people of Israel.
04O||21||7||Then the people came to Moses and said, We have done wrong in crying out against the Lord and against you: make prayer to the Lord to take away the snakes from us. So Moses made prayer for the people.
04O||21||8||And the Lord said to Moses, Make an image of a snake and put it on a rod, and anyone who has been wounded by the snakes, looking on it will be made well.
04O||21||9||So Moses made a snake of brass and put it on a rod; and anyone who had a snakebite, after looking on the snake of brass, was made well.
04O||21||10||Then the children of Israel went on and put up their tents in Oboth.
04O||21||11||And journeying on again from Oboth, they put up their tents in Iye-abarim, in the waste land before Moab looking east.
04O||21||12||And moving on from there, they put up their tents in the valley of Zered.
04O||21||13||From there they went on and put up their tents on the other side of the Arnon, which is on the waste land at the edge of the land of the Amorites; for the Arnon is the line of division between Moab and the Amorites:
04O||21||14||As it says in the book of the Wars of the Lord, Vaheb in Suphah, and the valley of the Amon;
04O||21||15||The slope of the valleys going down to the tents of Ar and touching the edge of Moab.
04O||21||16||From there they went on to Beer, the water-spring of which the Lord said to Moses, Make the people come together and I will give them water.
04O||21||17||Then Israel gave voice to this song: Come up, O water-spring, let us make a song to it:
04O||21||18||The fountain made by the chiefs, made deep by the great ones of the people, with the law-givers' rod, and with their sticks. Then from the waste land they went on to Mattanah:
04O||21||19||And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth:
04O||21||20||And from Bamoth to the valley in the open country of Moab, and to the top of Pisgah looking over Jeshimon.
04O||21||21||And Israel sent men to Sihon, king of the Amorites, saying,
04O||21||22||Let me go through your land: we will not go into field or vine-garden, or take the water of the springs; we will go by the highway till we have gone past the limits of your land.
04O||21||23||And Sihon would not let Israel go through his land; but got all his people together and went out against Israel into the waste land, as far as Jahaz, to make war on Israel.
04O||21||24||But Israel overcame him, and took all his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the country of the children of Ammon, for the country of the children of Ammon was strongly armed.
04O||21||25||And Israel took all their towns, living in Heshbon and all the towns and small places of the Amorites.
04O||21||26||For Heshbon was the town of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who had made war against an earlier king of Moab and taken from him all his land as far as the Arnon.
04O||21||27||So the makers of wise sayings say, Come to Heshbon, building up the town of Sihon and making it strong:
04O||21||28||For a fire has gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the town of Sihon: for the destruction of Ar in Moab, and the lords of the high places of the Arnon.
04O||21||29||Sorrow is yours, O Moab! Destruction is your fate, O people of Chemosh: his sons have gone in flight, and his daughters are prisoners, in the hands of Sihon, king of the Amorites.
04O||21||30||They are wounded with our arrows; destruction has come on Heshbon, even to Dibon; and we have made the land waste as far as Nophah, stretching out to Medeba.
04O||21||31||So Israel put up their tents in the land of the Amorites.
04O||21||32||And Moses sent men secretly to Jazer, and they took its towns, driving out the Amorites who were living there.
04O||21||33||Then turning they went up by the way of Bashan; and Og, king of Bashan, went out against them with all his people, to the fight at Edrei.
04O||21||34||And the Lord said to Moses, Have no fear of him: for I have given him up into your hands, with all his people and his land; do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, at Heshbon.
04O||21||35||So they overcame him and his sons and his people, driving them all out: and they took his land for their heritage.
04O||22||1||Then the children of Israel, journeying on, put up their tents in the lowlands of Moab, on the other side of Jordan at Jericho.
04O||22||2||Now Balak, the son of Zippor, saw what Israel had done to the Amorites.
04O||22||3||And in Moab there was great fear of the people, because their numbers were so great: and the feeling of Moab was bitter against the children of Israel.
04O||22||4||Then Moab said to the responsible men of Midian, It is clear that this great people will be the destruction of everything round us, making a meal of us as the ox does of the grass of the field. At that time Balak, the son of Zippor, was king of Moab.
04O||22||5||So he sent men to Balaam, son of Beor, at Pethor by the River in the land of the children of his people, saying to him, See, a people has come out of Egypt, covering all the face of the earth, and they have put up their tents opposite to me:
04O||22||6||Come now, in answer to my prayer, and put a curse on this people, for they are greater than I: and then I may be strong enough to overcome them and send them out of the land: for it is clear that good comes to him who has your blessing, but he on whom you put your curse is cursed.
04O||22||7||So the responsible men of Moab and Midian went away, taking in their hands rewards for the prophet; and they came to Balaam and said to him what Balak had given them orders to say.
04O||22||8||And he said to them, Take your rest here tonight, and I will give you an answer after hearing what the Lord says; so the chiefs of Moab kept there with Balaam that night.
04O||22||9||And God came to Balaam and said, Who are these men with you?
04O||22||10||And Balaam said to God, Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab, has sent them to me, saying,
04O||22||11||See, the people who have come out of Egypt are covering all the earth: now, put a curse on this people for me, so that I may be able to make war on them, driving them out of the land.
04O||22||12||And God said to Balaam, You are not to go with them, or put a curse on this people, for they have my blessing.
04O||22||13||In the morning Balaam got up and said to the chiefs of Balak, Go back to your land, for the Lord will not let me go with you.
04O||22||14||So the chiefs of Moab went back to Balak and said, Balaam will not come with us.
04O||22||15||So Balak sent more chiefs, greater in number and of higher position than the others.
04O||22||16||And they came to Balaam and said, Balak, son of Zippor, says, Let nothing keep you from coming to me:
04O||22||17||For I will give you a place of very great honour, and whatever you say to me I will do; so come, in answer to my prayer, and put a curse on this people.
04O||22||18||But Balaam, in answer; said to the servants of Balak, Even if Balak gave me his house full of silver and gold, it would not be possible for me to do anything more or less than the orders of the Lord my God.
04O||22||19||So take your rest here this night, till I have knowledge what more the Lord has to say to me.
04O||22||20||And that night God came to Balaam and said to him, If these men have come for you, go with them: but do only what I say to you.
04O||22||21||So in the morning Balaam got up and, making his ass ready, went with the chiefs of Moab.
04O||22||22||But God was moved to wrath because he went: and the angel of the Lord took up a position in the road to keep him from his purpose. Now he was seated on his ass, and his two servants were with him.
04O||22||23||And the ass saw the angel of the Lord waiting in the road with his sword in his hand; and turning from the road, the ass went into the field; and Balaam gave the ass blows, to get her back on to the road.
04O||22||24||Then the angel of the Lord took up his position in a narrow road through the vine-gardens, with a wall on this side and on that.
04O||22||25||And the ass saw the angel of the Lord, and went near the wall, crushing Balaam's foot against the wall; and he gave her more blows.
04O||22||26||Then the angel of the Lord went further, stopping in a narrow place where there was no room for turning to the right or to the left.
04O||22||27||And the ass saw the angel of the Lord and went down on the earth under Balaam; and full of wrath, Balaam gave her hard blows with his stick.
04O||22||28||Then the Lord gave the ass the power of talking, and opening her mouth she said to Balaam, What have I done to you that you have given me blows these three times?
04O||22||29||And Balaam said to the ass, You have made me seem foolish: if only I had a sword in my hand I would put you to death.
04O||22||30||And the ass said to Balaam, Am I not your ass upon which you have gone all your life till this day? and have I ever done this to you before? And he said, No.
04O||22||31||Then the Lord made Balaam's eyes open, and he saw the angel of the Lord in the way with his sword in his hand: and he went down on his face to the earth.
04O||22||32||And the angel of the Lord said to him, Why have you given your ass blows these three times? See, I have come out against you to keep you back, because your purpose is not pleasing to me.
04O||22||33||And the ass saw me, turning to one side from me three times: if she had not gone to one side, I would certainly have put you to death and kept her safe.
04O||22||34||And Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have done wrong, for I did not see that you were in the way against me: but now, if it is evil in your eyes, I will go back again.
04O||22||35||And the angel of the Lord said to Balaam, Go with the men; but say only what I give you to say. Then Balaam went on with the chiefs of Balak.
04O||22||36||Now Balak, hearing that Balaam had come, went to the chief town of Moab, on the edge of the Arnon, in the farthest part of the land, for the purpose of meeting him.
04O||22||37||And Balak said to Balaam, Did I not send to you, requesting you with all my heart to come to me? why did you not come? am I not able to give you a place of honour?
04O||22||38||Then Balaam said to Balak, Now I have come to you; but have I power to say anything? Only what God puts into my mouth may I say.
04O||22||39||And Balaam went with Balak to Kiriath-huzoth.
04O||22||40||And Balak made offerings of oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam and the chiefs who were with him.
04O||22||41||And in the morning Balak took Balaam up to the high places of Baal, and from there he was able to see the outer limits of the people.
04O||23||1||And Balaam said to Balak, Make me here seven altars and get ready seven oxen and seven male sheep.
04O||23||2||And Balak did as Balaam had said; and Balak and Balaam made an offering on every altar of an ox and a male sheep.
04O||23||3||Then Balaam said to Balak, Take your place by your burned offering, and I will go and see if the Lord comes to me: and I will give you word of whatever he says to me. And he went to an open place on a hill.
04O||23||4||And God came to Balaam, and Balaam said to him, I have made ready seven altars, offering an ox and a male sheep on every altar.
04O||23||5||And the Lord put words in Balaam's mouth, and said, Go back to Balak, and this is what you are to say.
04O||23||6||So he went back to him where he was waiting by his burned offering with all the chiefs of Moab.
04O||23||7||And in the words which the Lord had given him he said, From Aram Balak has sent for me, the king of Moab from the mountains of the East: come, put curses on Jacob for me and be angry with Israel.
04O||23||8||How may I put curses on him who is not cursed by God? how may I be angry with him with whom the Lord is not angry?
04O||23||9||From the top of the rocks I see him, looking down on him from the hills: it is a people made separate, not to be numbered among the nations.
04O||23||10||Who is able to take the measure of the dust of Jacob or the number of the thousands of Israel? May my death be the death of the upright and my last end like his!
04O||23||11||Then Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I sent for you so that my haters might be cursed, and see, you have given them a blessing.
04O||23||12||And in answer he said, Am I not ordered to say only what the Lord puts into my mouth?
04O||23||13||And Balak said to him, Come with me now into another place from which you will not be able to see them all, but only the outskirts of them; and you will send curses on them from there.
04O||23||14||So he took him into the country of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and there they made seven altars, offering an ox and a male sheep on every altar.
04O||23||15||Then he said to Balak, Take your place here by your burned offering, while I go over there to the Lord.
04O||23||16||And the Lord came to Balaam, and put words in his mouth, and said, Go back to Balak, and this is what you are to say.
04O||23||17||So he came to him where he was waiting by his burned offering with the chiefs of Moab by his side. And Balak said to him, What has the Lord said?
04O||23||18||And in the words which the Lord had given him he said, Up! Balak, and give ear; give attention to me, O son of Zippor:
04O||23||19||God is not a man, to say what is false; or the son of man, that his purpose may be changed: what he has said, will he not do? and will he not give effect to the words of his mouth?
04O||23||20||See, I have had orders to give blessing: and he has given a blessing which I have no power to take away.
04O||23||21||He has seen no evil in Jacob or wrongdoing in Israel: the Lord his God is with him, and the glad cry of a king is among them.
04O||23||22||It is God who has taken them out of Egypt; his horns are like those of the mountain ox.
04O||23||23||No evil power has effect against Jacob, no secret arts against Israel; at the right time it will be said of Jacob and of Israel, See what God has done!
04O||23||24||See, Israel comes up like a she-lion, lifting himself up like a lion: he will take no rest till he has made a meal of those he has overcome, drinking the blood of those he has put to death.
04O||23||25||Then Balak said to Balaam, If you will not put a curse on them, at all events do not give them a blessing.
04O||23||26||But Balaam in answer said to Balak, Did I not say to you, I may only do what the Lord says?
04O||23||27||Then Balak said to Balaam, Come now, I will take you to another place; it may be that God will let you put a curse on them from there.
04O||23||28||So Balak took Balaam to the top of Peor, looking down over the waste land.
04O||23||29||And Balaam said to Balak, Make me seven altars here and get seven oxen and seven male sheep ready for me.
04O||23||30||And Balak did as Balaam said, offering an ox and a male sheep on every altar.
04O||24||1||Now when Balaam saw that it was the Lord's pleasure to give his blessing to Israel, he did not, as at other times, make use of secret arts, but turning his face to the waste land,
04O||24||2||And lifting up his eyes, he saw Israel there, with their tents in the order of their tribes: and the spirit of God came on him.
04O||24||3||And moved by the spirit, he said, These are the words of Balaam, son of Beor, the words of the man whose eyes are open:
04O||24||4||He says, whose ears are open to the words of God, who has seen the vision of the Ruler of all, falling down, but having his eyes open:
04O||24||5||How fair are your tents, O Jacob, your houses, O Israel!
04O||24||6||They are stretched out like valleys, like gardens by the riverside, like flowering trees planted by the Lord, like cedar-trees by the waters.
04O||24||7||Peoples will be in fear before his strength, his arm will be on great nations: his king will be higher than Agag, and his kingdom made great in honour.
04O||24||8||It is God who has taken him out of Egypt; his horns are like those of the mountain ox; the nations warring against him will be his food, their bones will be broken, they will be wounded with his arrows.
04O||24||9||He took his sleep stretched out like a lion, and like a she-lion: by whom will his rest be broken? May a blessing be on everyone who gives you blessing, and a curse on everyone by whom you are cursed.
04O||24||10||Then Balak was full of wrath against Balaam, and angrily waving his hands he said to Balaam, I sent for you so that those who are against me might be cursed, but now, see, three times you have given them a blessing.
04O||24||11||Go back quickly to the place you came from: it was my purpose to give you a place of honour, but now the Lord has kept you back from honour.
04O||24||12||Then Balaam said to Balak, Did I not say to the men you sent to me,
04O||24||13||Even if Balak gave me his house full of silver and gold, it would not be possible for me to go outside the orders of the Lord, doing good or evil at the impulse of my mind; whatever the Lord says I will say?
04O||24||14||So now I will go back to my people: but first let me make clear to you what this people will do to your people in days to come.
04O||24||15||Then he went on with his story and said, These are the words of Balaam, the son of Beor, the words of him whose eyes are open:
04O||24||16||He says, whose ear is open to the words of God, who has knowledge of the Most High, who has seen the vision of the Ruler of all, falling down and having his eyes open:
04O||24||17||I see him, but not now: looking on him, but not near: a star will come out of Jacob, and a rod of authority out of Israel, sending destruction to the farthest limits of Moab and on the head of all the sons of Sheth.
04O||24||18||Edom will be his heritage, and he will put an end to the last of the people of Seir.
04O||24||19||And Israel will go on in strength, and Jacob will have rule over his haters.
04O||24||20||Then, turning his eyes to Amalek, he went on with his story and said, Amalek was the first of the nations, but his part will be destruction for ever.
04O||24||21||And looking on the Kenites he went on with his story and said, Strong is your living-place, and your secret place is safe in the rock.
04O||24||22||But still the Kenites will be wasted, till Asshur takes you away prisoner.
04O||24||23||Then he went on with his story and said, But who may keep his life when God does this?
04O||24||24||But ships will come from the direction of Kittim, troubling Asshur and troubling Eber, and like the others their fate will be destruction.
04O||24||25||Then Balaam got up and went back to his place: and Balak went away.
04O||25||1||Now when Israel was living in Shittim the people became false to the Lord, doing evil with the daughters of Moab:
04O||25||2||For they sent for the people to be present at the offerings made to their gods; and the people took part in their feasts and gave honour to their gods.
04O||25||3||So Israel had relations with the women of Moab in honour of the Baal of Peor: and the Lord was moved to wrath against Israel.
04O||25||4||Then the Lord said to Moses, Take all the chiefs of the people, hanging them up in the sun before the Lord, so that the wrath of the Lord may be turned from Israel.
04O||25||5||So Moses said to the judges of Israel, Let everyone put to death those of his men who have had relations with the women of Moab in honour of the Baal of Peor.
04O||25||6||Then one of the children of Israel came to his brothers, taking with him a woman of Midian, before the eyes of Moses and all the meeting of the people, while they were weeping at the door of the Tent of meeting.
04O||25||7||And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, seeing it, got up from among the people and took a spear in his hand,
04O||25||8||And went after the man of Israel into the tent, driving the spear through the two of them, through the man of Israel and through the stomach of the woman. So the disease was stopped among the children of Israel.
04O||25||9||But twenty-four thousand of them had come to their death by the disease.
04O||25||10||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||25||11||Through Phinehas, and because of his passion for my honour, my wrath has been turned away from the children of Israel, so that I have not sent destruction on them all in my wrath.
04O||25||12||So say to them that I will make with him an agreement of peace:
04O||25||13||And by this agreement, he and his sons after him have the right to be priests for ever; because, by his care for the honour of his God, he took away the sin of the children of Israel.
04O||25||14||Now the man of Israel who was put to death with the woman of Midian was Zimri, the son of Salu, a chief of one of the families of the Simeonites.
04O||25||15||And the woman of Midian who was put to death was Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he was the head of a family in Midian.
04O||25||16||Then the Lord said to Moses,
04O||25||17||Take up arms against the Midianites and overcome them;
04O||25||18||For they are a danger to you with their false ways, causing sin to come on you in the question of Peor, and because of Cozbi, their sister, the daughter of the chief of Midian, who was put to death at the time of the disease which came on you because of Peor.
04O||26||1||Now after the disease was over, the Lord said to Moses and Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest,
04O||26||2||Let all the children of Israel be numbered, by the names of their fathers' families, all those of twenty years old and over who are able to go to war in Israel.
04O||26||3||So Moses and Eleazar the priest gave them the order in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho, saying,
04O||26||4||Let all the people of twenty years old and over be numbered, as the Lord has given orders to Moses and the children of Israel who have come out of Egypt.
04O||26||5||Reuben, the first son of Israel: the sons of Reuben by their families: of Hanoch, the family of the Hanochites: of Pallu, the family of the Palluites:

04O||26||7||These are the families of the Reubenites: their number was forty-three thousand, seven hundred and thirty.
04O||26||8||And the sons of Pallu, Eliab
04O||26||9||And the sons of Eliab: Nemuel and Dathan and Abiram. These are the same Dathan and Abiram who had a place in the meeting of the people, who together with Korah made an outcry against Moses and Aaron and against the Lord:
04O||26||10||And they went down into the open mouth of the earth, together with Korah, when death overtook him and all his band; at the time when two hundred and fifty men were burned in the fire, and they became a sign.
04O||26||11||But death did not overtake the sons of Korah.

04O||26||18||These are the families of the sons of Gad as they were numbered, forty thousand, five hundred.
04O||26||19||The sons of Judah, Er and Onan: and Er and Onan had come to their death in the land of Canaan.
04O||26||20||And the sons of Judah by their families were: of Shelah, the family of the Shelahites: of Perez, the family of the Perezites: of Zerah, the family of the Zerahites.
04O||26||21||And the sons of Perez were: of Hezron, the family of the Hezronites: of Hamul, the family of the Hamulites.
04O||26||22||These are the families of Judah as they were numbered, seventy-six thousand, five hundred.

04O||26||30||These are the sons of Gilead: of Iezer, the family of the Iezerites: of Helek, the family of the Helekites:
04O||26||31||And of Asriel, the family of the Asrielites: and of Shechem, the family of the Shechemites:
04O||26||32||And of Shemida, the family of the Shemidaites: and of Hepher, the family of the Hepherites.
04O||26||33||And Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, had no sons, but only daughters, and the names of the daughters of Zelophehad were Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
04O||26||34||These are the families of Manasseh; and those who were numbered of them were fifty-two thousand, seven hundred.
04O||26||35||These are the sons of Ephraim by their families: of Shuthelah, the family of the Shuthelahites: of Becher, the family of the Becherites: of Tahan, the family of the Tahanites.

04O||26||51||Those who were numbered of the children of Israel were six hundred and one thousand, seven hundred and thirty.
04O||26||52||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||26||53||Let there be a division of the land among these, for their heritage, in relation to the number of names.
04O||26||54||To those families who are more in number, give a greater heritage; to those who are less in number, a smaller part: to every one let the heritage be given in relation to the number in his family.
04O||26||55||But let the distribution of the land be made by the decision of the Lord: by the names of the tribes of their fathers let their heritage be given them.
04O||26||56||As it is ordered by the decision of the Lord, let distribution be made between those who are more in number and those who are less.
04O||26||57||These were those of the Levites who were numbered by their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites: of Kohath, the family of the Kohathites: of Merari, the family of the Merarites.
04O||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 Kohath was the father of Amram.
04O||26||59||Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, whom he had in Egypt: by Amram she had Moses and Aaron and their sister Miriam.
04O||26||60||Aaron's sons were Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
04O||26||61||Death overtook Nadab and Abihu when they made an offering of strange fire before the Lord.
04O||26||62||Of these, twenty-three thousand males, from one month old and over, were numbered: they were not numbered with the rest of the children of Israel, for they had no heritage among the children of Israel.
04O||26||63||All these were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest when the children of Israel were numbered in the lowlands of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.
04O||26||64||But among all these was not one of those numbered by Moses and Aaron the priest when the children of Israel were numbered in the waste land of Sinai.
04O||26||65||For the Lord had said of them, Death will certainly overtake them in the waste land. And of them all, only Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, the son of Nun, were still living.
04O||27||1||Then 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, came forward: their names are Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah.
04O||27||2||They came before Moses and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs and all the people at the door of the Tent of meeting, and said,
04O||27||3||Death overtook our father in the waste land; he was not among those who were banded together with Korah against the Lord; but death came to him in his sin; and he had no sons.
04O||27||4||Why is the name of our father to be taken away from among his family, because he had no son? Give us a heritage among our father's brothers.
04O||27||5||So Moses put their cause before the Lord.
04O||27||6||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||27||7||What the daughters of Zelophehad say is right: certainly you are to give them a heritage among their father's brothers: and let the property which would have been their father's go to them.
04O||27||8||And say to the children of Israel, If a man has no son at the time of his death, let his heritage go to his daughter.
04O||27||9||And if he has no daughter, then give his heritage to his brothers.
04O||27||10||And if he has no brothers, then give his heritage to his father's brothers.
04O||27||11||And if his father has no brothers, then give it to his nearest relation in the family, as his heritage: this is to be a decision made by law for the children of Israel, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
04O||27||12||And the Lord said to Moses, Go up into this mountain of Abarim so that you may see the land which I have given to the children of Israel.
04O||27||13||And when you have seen it, you will be put to rest with your people, as your brother Aaron was:
04O||27||14||Because in the waste land of Zin, when the people were angry, you and he went against my word and did not keep my name holy before their eyes, at the waters. (These are the waters of Meribah in Kadesh in the waste land of Zin.)
04O||27||15||Then Moses said to the Lord,
04O||27||16||Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, put a man at the head of this people,
04O||27||17||To go out and come in before them and be their guide; so that the people of the Lord may not be like sheep without a keeper.
04O||27||18||And the Lord said to Moses, Take Joshua, the son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit, and put your hand on him;
04O||27||19||And take him before Eleazar the priest and all the meeting of the people, and give him his orders before their eyes.
04O||27||20||And put your honour on him, so that all the children of Israel may be under his authority.
04O||27||21||He will take his place before Eleazar the priest, so that he may get directions from the Lord for him, with the Urim: at his word they will go out, and at his word they will come in, he and all the children of Israel.
04O||27||22||So Moses did as the Lord said: he took Joshua and put him before Eleazar the priest and the meeting of the people:
04O||27||23||And he put his hands on him and gave him his orders, as the Lord had said by Moses.
04O||28||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||28||2||Give orders to the children of Israel and say to them, Let it be your care to give me my offerings at their regular times, the food of the offerings made by fire to me for a sweet smell.
04O||28||3||Say to them, This is the offering made by fire which you are to give to the Lord; he-lambs of the first year without any mark, two every day as a regular burned offering.
04O||28||4||Let one be offered in the morning, and the other at evening;
04O||28||5||And the tenth part of an ephah of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with the fourth part of a hin of clear oil.
04O||28||6||It is a regular burned offering, as it was ordered in Mount Sinai, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
04O||28||7||And for its drink offering take the fourth part of a hin for one lamb: in the holy place let the wine be drained out for a drink offering for the Lord.
04O||28||8||Let the other lamb be offered at evening; like the meal offering of the morning and its drink offering, let it be offered as an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord.
04O||28||9||And on the Sabbath day, two he-lambs of the first year, without any mark, and two tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, and its drink offering:
04O||28||10||This is the burned offering for every Sabbath day, in addition to the regular burned offering, and its drink offering.
04O||28||11||And on the first day of every month you are to give a burned offering to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark;
04O||28||12||And three tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, for every ox; and two tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, for the one sheep;
04O||28||13||And a separate tenth part of the best meal mixed with oil for a meal offering for every lamb; for a burned offering of a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
04O||28||14||And their drink offerings are to be half a hin of wine for an ox, and the third part of a hin for a male sheep, and the fourth part of a hin for a lamb: this is the burned offering for every month through all the months of the year.
04O||28||15||And one he-goat for a sin-offering to the Lord; it is to be offered in addition to the regular burned offering and its drink offering.
04O||28||16||And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is the Lord's Passover.
04O||28||17||On the fifteenth day of this month there is to be a feast; for seven days let your food be unleavened cakes.
04O||28||18||On the first day there is to be a holy meeting: you may do no sort of field-work:
04O||28||19||And you are to give an offering made by fire, a burned offering to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||28||20||And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil: let three tenth parts of an ephah be offered for an ox and two tenth parts for a male sheep;
04O||28||21||And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs;
04O||28||22||And one he-goat for a sin-offering to take away your sin.
04O||28||23||These are to be offered in addition to the morning burned offering, which is a regular burned offering at all times.
04O||28||24||In this way, every day for seven days, give the food of the offering made by fire, a sweet smell to the Lord: it is to be offered in addition to the regular burned offering, and its drink offering.
04O||28||25||Then on the seventh day there will be a holy meeting; you may do no field-work.
04O||28||26||And at the time of the first-fruits, when you give an offering of new meal to the Lord at your feast of weeks, there is to be a holy meeting: you may do no field-work:
04O||28||27||And give a burned offering for a sweet smell to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year;
04O||28||28||And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep,
04O||28||29||And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs;
04O||28||30||And one he-goat to take away your sin.
04O||28||31||These are in addition to the regular burned offering and its meal offering; take care that they are without any mark, and let them be offered with their drink offerings.
04O||29||1||In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, let there be a holy meeting; on it you may do no field-work; let the day be marked by the blowing of horns;
04O||29||2||And give to the Lord a burned offering for a sweet smell; one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark on them:
04O||29||3||And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep,
04O||29||4||And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs;
04O||29||5||And one he-goat for a sin-offering, to take away your sin:
04O||29||6||In addition to the burned offering of the new moon, and its meal offering, and the regular burned offering and its meal offering, and their drink offerings, as they are ordered, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
04O||29||7||And on the tenth day of this seventh month there will be a holy meeting; keep yourselves from pleasure, and do no sort of work;
04O||29||8||And give to the Lord a burned offering for a sweet smell; one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year: only those without any mark on them may be used:
04O||29||9||And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep,
04O||29||10||A separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs;
04O||29||11||One he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the offering for taking away your sin, and the regular burned offering and its meal offering, and their drink offerings.
04O||29||12||And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month let there be a holy meeting; do no field-work, and keep a feast to the Lord for seven days;
04O||29||13||And give a burned offering, an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord, thirteen oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, all without any mark on them;
04O||29||14||And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for every one of the thirteen oxen, two tenth parts for every male sheep,
04O||29||15||And a separate tenth part for every one of the fourteen lambs;
04O||29||16||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||17||On the second day of the feast give an offering of twelve oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark on them;
04O||29||18||And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen and the sheep and the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||19||And one he-goat for a sin-offering in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and their drink offerings.
04O||29||20||And on the third day eleven oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark;
04O||29||21||And their meal offering and drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||22||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||23||And on the fourth day ten oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||29||24||And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered.
04O||29||25||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||26||And on the fifth day nine oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||29||27||And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||28||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||29||And on the sixth day eight oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||29||30||And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||31||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, its meal offering, and its drink offerings.
04O||29||32||And on the seventh day seven oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||29||33||And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||34||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||35||On the eighth day let there be a holy meeting: you may do no field-work;
04O||29||36||And give a burned offering, an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord: one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark:
04O||29||37||With the meal offering and the drink offerings for the ox, the male sheep, and the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered:
04O||29||38||And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.
04O||29||39||These are the offerings which you are to give to the Lord at your regular feasts, in addition to the offerings for an oath, and the free offerings you give, for your burned offerings and your drink offerings and your peace-offerings.
04O||29||40||So Moses gave the children of Israel all these directions as the Lord had given him orders.
04O||30||1||And Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, This is the order of the Lord.
04O||30||2||When a man takes an oath to the Lord, or gives an undertaking having the force of an oath, let him not go back from his word, but let him do whatever he has said he will do.
04O||30||3||If a woman, being young and under the authority of her father, takes an oath to the Lord or gives an undertaking;
04O||30||4||If her father, hearing of her oath or the undertaking she has given, says nothing to her, then all her oaths and every undertaking she has given will have force.
04O||30||5||But if her father, hearing of it, makes her take back her word, then the oaths or the undertakings she has given will have no force; and she will have forgiveness from the Lord, because her oath was broken by her father.
04O||30||6||And if she is married to a husband at the time when she is under an oath or an undertaking given without thought;
04O||30||7||If her husband, hearing of it, says nothing to her at the time, then the oaths she made and the undertakings she gave will have force.
04O||30||8||But if her husband, hearing of it, makes her take it back, then the oath she made and the undertaking she gave without thought will have no force or effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness.
04O||30||9||But an oath made by a widow or one who is no longer married to her husband, and every undertaking she has given, will have force.
04O||30||10||If she made an oath while she was under the authority of her husband,
04O||30||11||And her husband, hearing of it, said nothing to her and did not put a stop to it, then all her oaths and every undertaking she gave will have force.
04O||30||12||But if her husband, on hearing of it, made them without force or effect, then whatever she has said about her oaths or her undertaking has no force: her husband has made them without effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness.
04O||30||13||Every oath, and every undertaking which she gives, to keep herself from pleasure, may be supported or broken by her husband.
04O||30||14||But if the days go on, and her husband says nothing whatever to her, then he is giving the support of his authority to her oaths and undertakings, because at the time of hearing them he said nothing to her.
04O||30||15||But if at some time after hearing of them, he makes them without force, then he is responsible for her wrongdoing.
04O||30||16||These are the laws which the Lord gave Moses in relation to a man and his wife, or a father and a young daughter who is under his authority.
04O||31||1||Then the Lord said to Moses,
04O||31||2||Give the Midianites punishment for the wrong they did to the children of Israel: and after that you will go to rest with your people.
04O||31||3||So Moses said to the people, Let men from among you be armed for war to put into effect against Midian the Lord's punishment on them.
04O||31||4||From every tribe of Israel send a thousand to the war.
04O||31||5||So from the thousands of Israel a thousand were taken from every tribe, twelve thousand men armed for war.
04O||31||6||And Moses sent them out to war, a thousand from every tribe, and with them Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the priest, taking in his hands the vessels of the holy place and the horns for sounding the note of war.
04O||31||7||And they made war on Midian, as the Lord gave orders to Moses; and they put to death every male.
04O||31||8||They put the kings of Midian to death with the rest, Evi and Reken and Zur and Hur and Reba, the five kings of Midian: and Balaam, the son of Beor, they put to death with the sword.
04O||31||9||The women of Midian with their little ones the children of Israel took prisoner; and all their cattle and flocks and all their goods they took for themselves;
04O||31||10||And after burning all their towns and all their tent-circles,
04O||31||11||They went away with the goods they had taken, man and beast.
04O||31||12||And the prisoners and the goods and everything they had taken, they took to Moses and Eleazar the priest and the people of Israel, to the tent-circle in the lowlands of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.
04O||31||13||Then Moses and Eleazar the priest and the chiefs of the people went out to them before they had come into the tent-circle.
04O||31||14||And Moses was angry with the chiefs of the army, the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds who had come back from the war.
04O||31||15||And Moses said to them, Why have you kept all the women safe?
04O||31||16||It was these who, moved by Balaam, were the cause of Israel's sin against the Lord in the question of Peor, because of which disease came on the people of the Lord.
04O||31||17||So now put every male child to death, and every woman who has had sex relations with a man.
04O||31||18||But all the female children who have had no sex relations with men, you may keep for yourselves.
04O||31||19||You yourselves will have to keep outside the tent-circle for seven days, anyone of you who has put any person to death or come near a dead body; and on the third day and on the seventh day make yourselves and your prisoners clean.
04O||31||20||And every bit of clothing, and anything made of leather or goats' hair or wood, you are to make clean.
04O||31||21||Then Eleazar the priest said to the men of war who had been to the fight, This is the rule of the law which the Lord has given to Moses:
04O||31||22||But gold and silver and brass and iron and tin and lead,
04O||31||23||And anything which may be heated, is to go through the fire and be made clean; but in addition it is to be put in the water of cleaning: and anything which may not go through the fire is to be put in the water.
04O||31||24||And on the seventh day, after washing your clothing, you will be clean, and then you may come into the tent-circle.
04O||31||25||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||31||26||Get an account of everything which was taken in the war, of man and of beast, you and Eleazar the priest and the heads of families of the people:
04O||31||27||And let division be made of it into two parts, one for the men of war who went out to the fight, and one for all the people:
04O||31||28||And from the men of war who went out let there be offered to the Lord one out of every five hundred, from the persons, and from the oxen and asses and sheep:
04O||31||29||Take this from their part and give it to Eleazar the priest as an offering to be lifted up to the Lord.
04O||31||30||And from the part given to the children of Israel, take one out of every fifty, from the persons, and from the oxen and asses and sheep, and give it to the Levites who have the care of the House of the Lord.
04O||31||31||So Eleazar and Moses did as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
04O||31||32||Now the beasts taken, in addition to what the fighting-men took for themselves, were six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep,
04O||31||33||And seventy-two thousand oxen,
04O||31||34||And sixty-one thousand asses;
04O||31||35||And thirty-two thousand persons, that is, women who had never had sex relations with a man.
04O||31||36||And the half given as their part to the men who went to the war, was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand, five hundred sheep,
04O||31||37||Of which the Lord's part was six hundred and seventy-five.
04O||31||38||The number of oxen was thirty-six thousand, of which the Lord's part was seventy-two;
04O||31||39||The number of asses was thirty thousand, five hundred, of which the Lord's part was sixty-one.
04O||31||40||And the number of persons was sixteen thousand, of which the Lord's part was thirty-two persons.
04O||31||41||And Moses gave the Lord's part, lifted up as an offering, to Eleazar the priest, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
04O||31||42||And from the half given to the children of Israel, which Moses had kept separate from that given to the fighting-men,
04O||31||43||(Now the people's half was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand, five hundred sheep,
04O||31||44||And thirty-six thousand oxen,
04O||31||45||And thirty thousand, five hundred asses,
04O||31||46||And sixteen thousand persons;)
04O||31||47||Even from the children of Israel's half, Moses took one out of every fifty, men and beasts, and gave them to the Levites who had the care of the House of the Lord; as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
04O||31||48||Then the men in authority over the thousands of the army, the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, came to Moses,
04O||31||49||And said to him, Your servants have taken note of the number of all the fighting-men under our orders, and every one is present;
04O||31||50||And we have here an offering for the Lord from what every man took in the war, ornaments of gold, leg-chains and arm-rings, finger-rings, ear-rings, and neck-ornaments, to make our souls free from sin before the Lord.
04O||31||51||So Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from them, even all the worked ornaments.
04O||31||52||And the gold which the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds gave, as an offering to be lifted up before the Lord, came to sixteen thousand, seven hundred and fifty shekels.
04O||31||53||(For every man of the army had taken goods for himself in the war.)
04O||31||54||Then Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold given by the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, and took it into the Tent of meeting, to be a sign in memory of the children of Israel before the Lord.
04O||32||1||Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a great number of cattle: and when they saw that the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead was a good place for cattle;
04O||32||2||The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and said to Moses and to Eleazar the priest and to the chiefs of the meeting,
04O||32||3||Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Sebam, and Nebo, and Beon,
04O||32||4||The land which the Lord gave into the hands of the children of Israel, is a land for cattle, and your servants have cattle.
04O||32||5||And they said, With your approval, let this land be given to your servants as their heritage: do not take us over Jordan.
04O||32||6||And Moses said to the children of Gad and the children of Reuben, Are your brothers to go to the war, while you take your rest here?
04O||32||7||Why would you take from the children of Israel the desire to go over into the land which the Lord has given them?
04O||32||8||So did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the land.
04O||32||9||For when they went up to the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they took from the children of Israel the desire to go into the land which the Lord had given them.
04O||32||10||And at that time the Lord was moved to wrath, and made an oath, saying,
04O||32||11||Truly, not one of the men of twenty years old and over who came out of Egypt will see the land which I gave by oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; because they have not been true to me with all their heart;
04O||32||12||But only Caleb, the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua, the son of Nun: because they have been true to the Lord.
04O||32||13||Then the Lord was angry with Israel, and he made them wanderers in the waste land for forty years? till all that generation who had done evil in the eyes of the Lord was dead.
04O||32||14||And now you have come to take the place of your fathers, another generation of sinners, increasing the wrath of the Lord against Israel.
04O||32||15||For if you are turned away from him, he will send them wandering again in the waste land; and you will be the cause of the destruction of all this people.
04O||32||16||Then they came to him, and said, We will make safe places for our cattle here, and towns for our little ones;
04O||32||17||But we ourselves will be ready armed to go before the children of Israel till we have taken them to their place: but our little ones will be safe in the walled towns against the people of the land.
04O||32||18||We will not come back to our houses till every one of the children of Israel has come into his heritage.
04O||32||19||For we will not have our heritage with them on the other side of Jordan and forward; because our heritage has come to us on this side of Jordan to the east.
04O||32||20||Then Moses said to them, If you will do this, arming yourselves to go before the Lord to the war,
04O||32||21||Every armed man of you going across Jordan before the Lord till he has overcome and sent in flight all who are against him,
04O||32||22||And the land is under the rule of the Lord: then after that you may come back, having done no wrong to the Lord and to Israel; and this land will be yours for your heritage before the Lord.
04O||32||23||But if you do not do this, then you are sinners against the Lord; and you may be certain that your sin will have its reward.
04O||32||24||So get to work building your towns for your little ones, and safe places for your sheep; and do as you have said.
04O||32||25||And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben said to Moses, Your servants will do as my lord says.
04O||32||26||Our little ones, our wives, and our flocks, and all our cattle, will be there in the towns of Gilead;
04O||32||27||But your servants will go over, every man armed for war, before the Lord to the fight, as my lord says.
04O||32||28||So Moses gave orders about them to Eleazar the priest and to Joshua, the son of Nun, and to the heads of families of the tribes of the children of Israel.
04O||32||29||And Moses said to them, If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben go with you over Jordan, every man armed for the fight before the Lord, and all the land is given into your hands, then let them have the land of Gilead for a heritage:
04O||32||30||But if they do not go over with you armed, they will have to take their heritage with you in the land of Canaan.
04O||32||31||Then the children of Gad and the children of Reuben said, As the Lord has said to your servants, so will we do.
04O||32||32||We will go over armed before the Lord into the land of Canaan, and you will give us our heritage on this side of Jordan.
04O||32||33||So Moses gave to them, even to the children of Gad and the children of Reuben and to the half-tribe of Manasseh, the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites and Og, king of Bashan, all the land with its towns and the country round them.
04O||32||34||And the children of Gad were the builders of Dibon and Ataroth and Aroer;
04O||32||35||And Atroth-shophan and Jazer and Jogbehah;
04O||32||36||And Beth-nimrah and Beth-haran: walled towns and shut-in places for sheep.
04O||32||37||And the children of Reuben were the builders of Heshbon and Elealeh and Kiriathaim;
04O||32||38||And Nebo and Baal-meon, (their names being changed,) and Sibmah: and they gave other names to the towns they made.
04O||32||39||And the children of Machir, the son of Manasseh, went to Gilead and took it, driving out the Amorites who were living there.
04O||32||40||And Moses gave Gilead to Machir, the son of Manasseh; and he made it his living-place.
04O||32||41||And Jair, the son of Manasseh, went and took the towns of Gilead, naming them Havvoth-Jair.
04O||32||42||And Nobah went and took Kenath and its small towns, naming it Nobah, after himself.
04O||33||1||These are the journeys of the children of Israel, when they went out of the land of Egypt in their armies, under the direction of Moses and Aaron.
04O||33||2||And the stages of their journey on their way out were put down in writing by Moses at the order of the Lord: these are the stages of their journey and the way they went.
04O||33||3||On the fifteenth day of the first month they went out from Rameses; on the day after the Passover the children of Israel went out by the power of the Lord before the eyes of all the Egyptians,
04O||33||4||While the Egyptians were placing in the earth the bodies of their sons on whom the Lord had sent destruction: and their gods had been judged by him.
04O||33||5||So the children of Israel went from Rameses and put up their tents in Succoth.
04O||33||6||And they went on from Succoth and put up their tents in Etham on the edge of the waste land.
04O||33||7||And from Etham, turning back to Pi-hahiroth which is before Baal-zephon, they put up their tents before Migdol.
04O||33||8||And journeying on from before Hahiroth, they went through the sea into the waste land: they went three days' journey through the waste land of Etham and put up their tents in Marah.
04O||33||9||And from Marah they went on to Elim: and in Elim there were twelve water-springs and seventy palm-trees; and they put up their tents there.
04O||33||10||And they went on from Elim and put up their tents by the Red Sea.
04O||33||11||Then from the Red Sea they went on and put up their tents in the waste land of Sin.
04O||33||12||And they went on from the waste land of Sin, and put up their tents in Dophkah.
04O||33||13||And they went on from Dophkah, and put up their tents in Alush.
04O||33||14||And they went on from Alush, and put up their tents in Rephidim, where there was no drinking-water for the people.
04O||33||15||And they went on from Rephidim, and put up their tents in the waste land of Sinai.
04O||33||16||And they went on from the waste land of Sinai and put up their tents in Kibroth-hattaavah.
04O||33||17||And they went on from Kibroth-hattaavah, and put up their tents in Hazeroth.
04O||33||18||And they went on from Hazeroth, and put up their tents in Rithmah.
04O||33||19||And they went on from Rithmah, and put up their tents in Rimmon-perez.
04O||33||20||And they went on from Rimmon-perez, and put up their tents in Libnah.
04O||33||21||And they went on from Libnah, and put up their tents in Rissah.
04O||33||22||And they went on from Rissah, and put up their tents in Kehelathah.
04O||33||23||And they went on from Kehelathah, and put up their tents in Mount Shepher.
04O||33||24||And they went on from Mount Shepher, and put up their tents in Haradah.
04O||33||25||And they went on from Haradah, and put up their tents in Makheloth.
04O||33||26||And they went on from Makheloth, and put up their tents in Tahath.
04O||33||27||And they went on from Tahath, and put up their tents in Terah.
04O||33||28||And they went on from Terah, and put up their tents in Mithkah.
04O||33||29||And they went on from Mithkah, and put up their tents in Hashmonah.
04O||33||30||And they went on from Hashmonah, and put up their tents in Moseroth.
04O||33||31||And they went on from Moseroth, and put up their tents in Bene-jaakan.
04O||33||32||And they went on from Bene-jaakan, and put up their tents in Hor-haggidgad.
04O||33||33||And they went on from Hor-haggidgad, and put up their tents in Jotbathah.
04O||33||34||And they went on from Jotbathah, and put up their tents in Abronah.
04O||33||35||And they went on from Abronah, and put up their tents in Ezion-geber.
04O||33||36||And they went on from Ezion-geber, and put up their tents in the waste land of Zin (which is Kadesh).
04O||33||37||And they went on from Kadesh, and put up their tents in Mount Hor, on the edge of the land of Edom.
04O||33||38||And Aaron the priest went up into the mountain at the order of the Lord, and came to his death there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel had come out of the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, on the first day of the month.
04O||33||39||Aaron was a hundred and twenty-three years old at the time of his death in Mount Hor.
04O||33||40||And news of the coming of the children of Israel came to the king of Arad, the Canaanite, who was living in the South in the land of Canaan.
04O||33||41||And from Mount Hor they went on, and put up their tents in Zalmonah.
04O||33||42||And they went on from Zalmonah, and put up their tents in Punon.
04O||33||43||And they went on from Punon, and put up their tents in Oboth.
04O||33||44||And they went on from Oboth, and put up their tents in Iye-abarim at the edge of Moab.
04O||33||45||And they went on from Iyim, and put up their tents in Dibon-gad.
04O||33||46||And from Dibon-gad they went on, and put up their tents in Almon-diblathaim.
04O||33||47||And from Almon-diblathaim they went on, and put up their tents in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo.
04O||33||48||And they went on from the mountains of Abarim, and put up their tents in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho;
04O||33||49||Planting their tents by the side of Jordan from Beth-jeshimoth as far as Abel-shittim in the lowlands of Moab.
04O||33||50||And in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho, the Lord said to Moses,
04O||33||51||Say to the children of Israel, When you go over Jordan into the land of Canaan,
04O||33||52||See that all the people of the land are forced out from before you, and put to destruction all their pictured stones, and all their metal images, and all their high places:
04O||33||53||And take the land for yourselves, for your resting-place: for to you I have given the land as your heritage.
04O||33||54||And you will take up your heritage in the land by the decision of the Lord, to every family its part; the greater the family the greater its heritage, and the smaller the family the smaller will be its heritage; wherever the decision of the Lord gives to any man his part, that will be his; distribution will be made to you by your fathers' tribes.
04O||33||55||But if you are slow in driving out the people of the land, then those of them who are still there will be like pin-points in your eyes and like thorns in your sides, troubling you in the land where you are living.
04O||33||56||And it will come about that as it was my purpose to do to them, so I will do to you.
04O||34||1||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||34||2||Give orders to the children of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land of Canaan; (this is the land which is to be your heritage, the land of Canaan inside these limits,)
04O||34||3||Then your south quarter will be from the waste land of Zin by the side of Edom, and your limit on the south will be from the east end of the Salt Sea,
04O||34||4||And round to the south of the slope of Akrabbim, and on to Zin: and its direction will be south of Kadesh-barnea, and it will go as far as Hazar-addar and on to Azmon:
04O||34||5||And from Azmon it will go round to the stream of Egypt as far as the sea.
04O||34||6||And for your limit on the west you will have the Great Sea and its edge: this will be your limit on the west.
04O||34||7||And your limit on the north will be the line from the Great Sea to Mount Hor:
04O||34||8||And from Mount Hor the line will go in the direction of Hamath; the farthest point of it will be at Zedad:
04O||34||9||And the limit will go on to Ziphron, with its farthest point at Hazar-enan: this will be your limit on the north.
04O||34||10||And on the east, your limit will be marked out from Hazar-enan to Shepham,
04O||34||11||Going down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain, and on as far as the east side of the sea of Chinnereth:
04O||34||12||And so down to Jordan, stretching to the Salt Sea: all the land inside these limits will be yours.
04O||34||13||And Moses gave orders to the children of Israel saying, This is the land which is to be your heritage, by the decision of the Lord, which by the Lord's order is to be given to the nine tribes and the half-tribe:
04O||34||14||For the tribe of the children of Reuben, by their fathers' families, and the tribe of the children of Gad, by their fathers' families, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, have been given their heritage:
04O||34||15||The two tribes and the half-tribe have been given their heritage on the other side of Jordan at Jericho, on the east looking to the dawn.
04O||34||16||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||34||17||These are the names of the men who are to make the distribution of the land among you: Eleazar the priest and Joshua, the son of Nun.
04O||34||18||And you are to take one chief from every tribe to make the distribution of the land.
04O||34||19||And these are the names of the men: of the tribe of Judah, Caleb, the son of Jephunneh.
04O||34||20||And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel, the son of Ammihud.
04O||34||21||Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad, the son of Chislon.
04O||34||22||And of the tribe of the children of Dan, a chief, Bukki, the son of Jogli.
04O||34||23||Of the children of Joseph: of the tribe of the children of Manasseh, a chief, Hanniel, the son of Ephod:
04O||34||24||And of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, a chief, Kemuel, the son of Shiphtan.
04O||34||25||And of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, a chief, Elizaphan, the son of Parnach.
04O||34||26||And of the tribe of the children of Issachar, a chief, Paltiel, the son of Azzan.
04O||34||27||And of the tribe of the children of Asher, a chief, Ahihud, the son of Shelomi.
04O||34||28||And of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, a chief, Pedahel, the son of Ammihud.
04O||34||29||These are they to whom the Lord gave orders to make the distribution of the heritage among the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.
04O||35||1||And the Lord said to Moses in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho,
04O||35||2||Give orders to the children of Israel to give to the Levites, from the heritage which is theirs, towns for themselves, with land on the outskirts of the towns.
04O||35||3||These towns are to be their living-places, with land round them for their cattle and their food and all their beasts,
04O||35||4||Stretching from the wall of the towns a distance of a thousand cubits all round.
04O||35||5||The measure of this space of land is to be two thousand cubits outside the town on the east, and two thousand cubits on the south and on the west and on the north, the town being in the middle. This space will be the outskirts of their towns.
04O||35||6||And the towns which you give the Levites are to be the six safe places to which the taker of life may go in flight; and in addition you are to give them forty-two towns.
04O||35||7||Forty-eight towns are to be given to the Levites, all with land round them.
04O||35||8||And these towns are to be given out of the heritage of the children of Israel, taking the greater number from those who have much, and a smaller number from those who have little: everyone, in the measure of his heritage, is to give of his property to the Levites.
04O||35||9||And the Lord said to Moses,
04O||35||10||Say to the children of Israel, when you have gone over Jordan into the land of Canaan;
04O||35||11||Then let certain towns be marked out as safe places to which anyone who takes the life of another in error may go in flight.
04O||35||12||In these towns you may be safe from him who has the right of punishment; so that death may not overtake the taker of life till he has been judged by the meeting of the people.
04O||35||13||Six of the towns which you give will be such safe places;
04O||35||14||Three on the other side of Jordan and three in the land of Canaan, to be safe places for flight.
04O||35||15||For the children of Israel and for the man from another country who is living among them, these six towns are to be safe places, where anyone causing the death of another through error may go in flight.
04O||35||16||But if a man gives another man a blow with an iron instrument, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.
04O||35||17||Or if he gives him a blow with a stone in his hand, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.
04O||35||18||Or if he gave him blows with a wood instrument in his hands, causing his death, he is a taker of life and is certainly to be put to death.
04O||35||19||He whose right it is to give punishment for blood, may himself put to death the taker of life when he comes face to face with him.
04O||35||20||If in his hate he put a sword through him, or waiting secretly for him sent a spear or stone at him, causing his death;
04O||35||21||Or in hate gave him blows with his hand, causing death; he who gave the death-blow is to be put to death; he is a taker of life: he whose right it is to give punishment for blood may put to death the taker of life when he comes face to face with him.
04O||35||22||But if a man has given a wound to another suddenly and not in hate, or without design has sent something against him,
04O||35||23||Or has given him a blow with a stone, without seeing him, so causing his death, though he had nothing against him and no desire to do him evil:
04O||35||24||Then let the meeting of the people be judge between the man responsible for the death and him who has the right of punishment for blood, acting by these rules:
04O||35||25||And let the people keep the man responsible for the death safe from the hands of him who has the right of punishment for blood, and send him back to his safe town where he had gone in flight: there let him be till the death of the high priest who was marked with the holy oil.
04O||35||26||But if ever he goes outside the walls of the safe town where he had gone in flight,
04O||35||27||And the giver of punishment, meeting him outside the walls of the town, puts him to death, he will not be responsible for his blood:
04O||35||28||Because he had been ordered to keep inside the safe town till the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the taker of life may come back to the place of his heritage.
04O||35||29||These rules are to be your guide in judging through all your generations wherever you may be living.
04O||35||30||Anyone causing the death of another is himself to be put to death on the word of witnesses: but the word of one witness is not enough.
04O||35||31||Further, no price may be given for the life of one who has taken life and whose right reward is death: he is certainly to be put to death.
04O||35||32||And no price may be offered for one who has gone in flight to a safe town, for the purpose of letting him come back to his place before the death of the high priest.
04O||35||33||So do not make the land where you are living unholy: for blood makes the land unholy: and there is no way of making the land free from the blood which has come on it, but only by the death of him who was the cause of it.
04O||35||34||Do not make unclean the land where you are living and in which is my House: for I the Lord am present among the children of Israel.
04O||36||1||Now the heads of the families of the children of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons of Joseph, came to Moses, the chiefs and the heads of families of the children of Israel being present,
04O||36||2||And said, The Lord gave orders to my lord to make distribution of the land as their heritage to the children of Israel: and my lord was ordered by the Lord to give the heritage of Zelophehad, our brother, to his daughters.
04O||36||3||Now if they get married to any of the sons of other tribes of the children of Israel, then their property will be taken away from the heritage of our fathers, and become part of the heritage of the tribe into which they get married: and their heritage will be taken away from the heritage of our tribe.
04O||36||4||And at the time of the Jubilee of the children of Israel, their property will be joined to the heritage of the tribe of which they are part and will be taken away from the heritage of the tribe of our fathers.
04O||36||5||So by the direction of the Lord, Moses gave orders to the children of Israel, saying, What the tribe of the sons of Joseph have said is right.
04O||36||6||This is the order of the Lord about the daughters of Zelophehad: The Lord says, Let them take as their husbands whoever is most pleasing to them, but only among the family of their father's tribe.
04O||36||7||And so no property will be handed from tribe to tribe among the children of Israel; but every one of the children of Israel will keep the heritage of his father's tribe.
04O||36||8||And every daughter owning property in any tribe of the children of Israel is to be married to one of the family of her father's tribe, so that every man of the children of Israel may keep the heritage of his fathers.
04O||36||9||And no property will be handed from one tribe to another, but every tribe of the children of Israel will keep its heritage.
04O||36||10||So the daughters of Zelophehad did as the Lord gave orders to Moses:
04O||36||11||For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelophehad, took as their husbands the sons of their father's brothers:
04O||36||12||And were married into the families of the sons of Manasseh, the son of Joseph, and their property was kept in the tribe of their father's family
04O||36||13||These are the laws and the orders which the Lord gave to the children of Israel by Moses, in the lowlands of Moab by Jordan at Jericho.
05O||1||1||These are the words which Moses said to all Israel on the far side of Jordan, in the waste land in the Arabah opposite Suph, between Paran on the one side, and Tophel, Laban, Hazeroth, and Dizahab on the other.
05O||1||2||It is eleven days' journey from Horeb by the way of Mount Seir to Kadesh-barnea.
05O||1||3||Now in the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses gave to the children of Israel all the orders which the Lord had given him for them;
05O||1||4||After he had overcome Sihon, king of the Amorites, ruling in Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, ruling in Ashtaroth, at Edrei:
05O||1||5||On the far side of Jordan in the land of Moab, Moses gave the people this law, saying,
05O||1||6||The Lord our God said to us in Horeb, You have been long enough in this mountain:
05O||1||7||Make a move now, and go on your way into the hill-country of the Amorites and the places near it, in the Arabah and the hill-country and in the lowlands and in the South and by the seaside, all the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates.
05O||1||8||See, all the land is before you: go in and take for yourselves the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and to their seed after them.
05O||1||9||At that time I said to you, I am not able to undertake the care of you by myself;
05O||1||10||The Lord your God has given you increase, and now you are like the stars of heaven in number.
05O||1||11||May the Lord, the God of your fathers, make you a thousand times greater in number than you are, and give you his blessing as he has said!
05O||1||12||How is it possible for me by myself to be responsible for you, and undertake the weight of all your troubles and your arguments?
05O||1||13||Take for yourselves men who are wise, far-seeing, and respected among you, from your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you.
05O||1||14||And you made answer and said to me, It is good for us to do as you say.
05O||1||15||So I took the heads of your tribes, wise men and respected, and made them rulers over you, captains of thousands and captains of hundreds and captains of fifties and captains of tens, and overseers of your tribes.
05O||1||16||And at that time I gave orders to your judges, saying, Let all questions between your brothers come before you for hearing, and give decisions uprightly between a man and his brother or one from another nation who is with him.
05O||1||17||In judging, do not let a man's position have any weight with you; give hearing equally to small and great; have no fear of any man, for it is God who is judge: and any cause in which you are not able to give a decision, you are to put before me and I will give it a hearing.
05O||1||18||And at that time I gave you all the orders which you were to do.
05O||1||19||Then we went on from Horeb, through all that great and cruel waste which you saw, on our way to the hill-country of the Amorites, as the Lord gave us orders; and we came to Kadesh-barnea.
05O||1||20||And I said to you, You have come to the hill-country of the Amorites, which the Lord our God is giving us.
05O||1||21||See now, the Lord your God has put the land into your hands: go up and take it, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has said to you; have no fear and do not be troubled.
05O||1||22||And you came near to me, every one of you, and said, Let us send men before us to go through the land with care and give us an account of the way we are to go and the towns to which we will come.
05O||1||23||And what you said seemed good to me, and I took twelve men from among you, one from every tribe;
05O||1||24||And they went up into the hill-country and came to the valley of Eshcol, and saw what was there.
05O||1||25||And taking in their hands some of the fruit of the land, they came down again to us, and gave us their account, saying, It is a good land which the Lord our God is giving us.
05O||1||26||But going against the order of the Lord your God, you would not go up:
05O||1||27||And you made an angry outcry in your tents, and said, In his hate for us the Lord has taken us out of the land of Egypt, to give us up into the hands of the Amorites for our destruction.
05O||1||28||Where are we going up? Our brothers have made our hearts feeble with fear by saying, The people are greater and taller than we are, and the towns are great and walled up to heaven; and more than this, we have seen the sons of the Anakim there.
05O||1||29||Then I said to you, Have no fear of them.
05O||1||30||The Lord your God who goes before you will be fighting for you, and will do such wonders as he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;
05O||1||31||And in the waste land, where you have seen how the Lord was supporting you, as a man does his son, in all your journeying till you came to this place.
05O||1||32||But for all this, you had no faith in the Lord your God,
05O||1||33||Who goes before you on your way, looking for a place where you may put up your tents, in fire by night, lighting up the way you are to go, and in a cloud by day.
05O||1||34||And the Lord, hearing your words, was angry, and said with an oath,
05O||1||35||Truly, not one of this evil generation will see that good land which I said I would give to your fathers,
05O||1||36||But only Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, he will see it; and to him and to his children I will give the land over which his feet have gone, because he has been true to the Lord with all his heart.
05O||1||37||And, in addition, the Lord was angry with me because of you, saying, You yourself will not go into it:
05O||1||38||Joshua, the son of Nun, your servant, he will go into the land: say to him that he is to be strong, for he will be Israel's guide into their heritage.
05O||1||39||And your little ones, who, you said, would come into strange hands, your children, who now have no knowledge of good or evil, they will go into that land, and to them I will give it and it will be theirs.
05O||1||40||But as for you, go back, journeying into the waste land by the way of the Red Sea.
05O||1||41||Then you said to me, We have done evil against the Lord, we will go up to the attack, as the Lord our God has given us orders. And arming yourselves every one, you made ready to go up without care into the hill-country.
05O||1||42||And the Lord said to me, Say to them, Do not go up to the attack; for I am not among you, and you will be overcome by those who are against you.
05O||1||43||This I said to you, but you gave no attention and went against the orders of the Lord, and in your pride went up into the hill-country.
05O||1||44||And the Amorites who were in the hill-country came out against you and put you to flight, rushing after you like bees, and overcame you in Seir, driving you even as far as Hormah.
05O||1||45||And you came back, weeping before the Lord; but the Lord gave no attention to your cries and did not give ear to you.
05O||1||46||So you were kept waiting in Kadesh for a long time.
05O||2||1||Then we went back, journeying into the waste land by the way to the Red Sea, as the Lord had said to me: and we were a long time going round Mount Seir.
05O||2||2||And the Lord said to me,
05O||2||3||You have been journeying round this mountain long enough: now go to the north;
05O||2||4||And give the people orders, saying, You are about to go through the land of your brothers, the children of Esau, who are living in Seir; and they will have fear of you; so take care what you do:
05O||2||5||Make no attack on them, for I will not give you any of their land, not even space enough for a man's foot: because I have given Mount Seir to Esau for his heritage.
05O||2||6||You may get food for your needs from them for a price, and water for drinking.
05O||2||7||For the blessing of the Lord your God has been on you in all the work of your hands: he has knowledge of your wanderings through this great waste: these forty years the Lord your God has been with you, and you have been short of nothing.
05O||2||8||So we went on past our brothers, the children of Esau, living in Seir, by the road through the Arabah, from Elath and Ezion-geber. And turning, we went by the road through the waste land of Moab.
05O||2||9||And the Lord said to me, Make no attack on Moab and do not go to war with them, for I will not give you any of his land: because I have given Ar to the children of Lot for their heritage.
05O||2||10||(In the past the Emim were living there; a great people, equal in numbers to the Anakim and as tall;
05O||2||11||They are numbered among the Rephaim, like the Anakim; but are named Emim by the Moabites.
05O||2||12||And the Horites in earlier times were living in Seir, but the children of Esau took their place; they sent destruction on them and took their land for themselves, as Israel did to the land of his heritage which the Lord gave them.)
05O||2||13||Get up now, and go over the stream Zered. So we went over the stream Zered.
05O||2||14||Thirty-eight years had gone by from the time when we came away from Kadesh-barnea till we went over the stream Zered; by that time all the generation of the men of war among us were dead, as the Lord had said.
05O||2||15||For the hand of the Lord was against them, working their destruction, till all were dead.
05O||2||16||So when death had overtaken all the men of war among the people,
05O||2||17||The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
05O||2||18||You are about to go by Ar, the limit of the country of Moab;
05O||2||19||And when you come near the land of the children of Ammon, give them no cause of trouble and do not make war on them, for I will not give you any of the land of the children of Ammon for your heritage: because I have given it to the children of Lot.
05O||2||20||(That land is said to have been a land of the Rephaim, for Rephaim had been living there in earlier times, but they were named Zamzummim by the Ammonites;
05O||2||21||They were a great people, tall as the Anakim, and equal to them in number; but the Lord sent destruction on them and the children of Ammon took their place, living in their land;
05O||2||22||As he did for the children of Esau living in Seir, when he sent destruction on the Horites before them, and they took their land where they are living to this day:
05O||2||23||And the Avvim, living in the small towns as far as Gaza, came to destruction by the hands of the Caphtorim who came out from Caphtor and took their land.)
05O||2||24||Get up now, and go on your journey, crossing over the valley of the Arnon: see, I have given into your hands Sihon, the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and all his land: go forward to make it yours, and make war on him,
05O||2||25||From now on I will put the fear of you in all peoples under heaven, who, hearing of you, will be shaking with fear and grief of heart because of you.
05O||2||26||Then from the waste land of Kedemoth I sent representatives to Sihon, king of Heshbon, with words of peace, saying,
05O||2||27||Let me go through your land: I will keep to the highway, not turning to the right or to the left;
05O||2||28||Let me have food, at a price, for my needs, and water for drinking: only let me go through on foot;
05O||2||29||As the children of Esau did for me in Seir and the Moabites in Ar; till I have gone over Jordan into the land which the Lord our God is giving us.
05O||2||30||But Sihon, king of Heshbon, would not let us go through; for the Lord your God made his spirit hard and his heart strong, so that he might give him up into your hands as at this day.
05O||2||31||And the Lord said to me, See, from now on I have given Sihon and his land into your hands: go forward now to take his land and make it yours.
05O||2||32||Then Sihon came out against us with all his people, to make an attack on us at Jahaz.
05O||2||33||And the Lord our God gave him into our hands; and we overcame him and his sons and all his people.
05O||2||34||At that time we took all his towns, and gave them over to complete destruction, together with men, women, and children; we had no mercy on any:
05O||2||35||Only the cattle we took for ourselves, with the goods from the towns we had taken.
05O||2||36||From Aroer on the edge of the valley of the Arnon and from the town in the valley as far as Gilead, no town was strong enough to keep us out; the Lord our God gave them all into our hands:
05O||2||37||But you did not go near the land of the children of Ammon, that is, all the side of the river Jabbok or the towns of the hill-country, wherever the Lord our God had said we were not to go.
05O||3||1||Then turning we took the road to Bashan: and Og, king of Bashan, came out against us with all his people, and made an attack on us at Edrei.
05O||3||2||And the Lord said to me, Have no fear of him: for I have given him and all his people and his land into your hands; do to him as you did to Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon.
05O||3||3||So the Lord our God gave up Og, king of Bashan, and all his people into our hands; and we overcame him so completely that all his people came to their end in the fight.
05O||3||4||At that time we took all his towns; there was not one town of the sixty towns, all the country of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which we did not take.
05O||3||5||All these towns had high walls round them with doors and locks; and in addition we took a great number of unwalled towns.
05O||3||6||And we put them to the curse, every town together with men, women, and children.
05O||3||7||But we took for ourselves all the cattle and the stored wealth of the towns.
05O||3||8||At that time we took their land from the two kings of the Amorites on the far side of Jordan, from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon;
05O||3||9||(By the Sidonians, Hermon is named Sirion, and by the Amorites Shenir;)
05O||3||10||All the towns of the table-land and all Gilead and Bashan as far as Salecah and Edrei, towns of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
05O||3||11||(For Og, king of Bashan, was the last of all the Rephaim; his bed was made of iron; is it not in Rabbah, in the land of the children of Ammon? It was nine cubits long and four cubits wide, measured by the common cubit.)
05O||3||12||And this land which we took at that time, from Aroer by the valley of the Arnon, and half the hill-country of Gilead with its towns, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites.
05O||3||13||The rest of Gilead and all Bashan, the kingdom of Og, all the land of Argob, together with Bashan, I gave to the half-tribe of Manasseh. (This land is named the land of the Rephaim.
05O||3||14||Jair, the son of Manasseh, took all the land of Argob, as far as the country of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, naming it, Bashan, Havvoth-Jair after himself, as it is to this day.)
05O||3||15||And Gilead I gave to Machir.
05O||3||16||And the land from Gilead to the valley of the Arnon, with the middle of the valley as a limit, as far as the river Jabbok which is the limit of the country of the children of Ammon, I gave to the Reubenites and the Gadites;
05O||3||17||As well as the Arabah, with the river Jordan as their limit, from Chinnereth to the Salt Sea, under the slopes of Pisgah to the east.
05O||3||18||At that time I gave you orders, saying, The Lord has given you this land for your heritage: all the men of war are to go over armed before your brothers the children of Israel.
05O||3||19||But your wives and your little ones and your cattle (for it is clear that you have much cattle) may go on living in the towns I have given you;
05O||3||20||Till the Lord has given rest to your brothers as to you, and till they have taken for themselves the land which the Lord your God is giving them on the other side of Jordan: then you may go back, every man of you, to the heritage which I have given you.
05O||3||21||And I gave orders to Joshua at that time, saying, Your eyes have seen what the Lord your God has done to these two kings: so will the Lord do to all the kingdoms into which you come.
05O||3||22||Have no fear of them, for the Lord your God will be fighting for you.
05O||3||23||And at that time I made request to the Lord, saying,
05O||3||24||O Lord God, you have now for the first time let your servant see your great power and the strength of your hand; for what god is there in heaven or on earth able to do such great works and such acts of power?
05O||3||25||Let me go over, O Lord, and see the good land on the other side of Jordan, and that fair mountain country, even Lebanon.
05O||3||26||But the Lord was angry with me because of you and would not give ear to my prayer; and the Lord said to me, Let it be enough, say no more about this thing.
05O||3||27||Go up to the top of Pisgah, and turning your eyes to the west and the north, to the south and the east, see the land with your eyes: for you are not to go over Jordan.
05O||3||28||But give my orders to Joshua, comforting him and making him strong; for he is to go over Jordan at the head of this people, and he will give them this land which you will see for their heritage.
05O||3||29||So we were waiting in the valley facing Beth-peor.
05O||4||1||And now give ear, O Israel, to the laws and the decisions which I am teaching you, and do them; so that life may be yours, and you may go in and take for yourselves the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, is giving you.
05O||4||2||Make no addition to the orders which I give you, and take nothing from them, but keep the orders of the Lord your God which I give you.
05O||4||3||Your eyes have seen what the Lord did because of Baal-peor: for destruction came from the Lord on all those among you who went after Baal-peor.
05O||4||4||But you who kept faith with the Lord are living, every one of you, today.
05O||4||5||I have been teaching you laws and decisions, as I was ordered to do by the Lord my God, so that you might keep them in the land to which you are going to take it for your heritage.
05O||4||6||So keep these laws and do them; for so will your wisdom and good sense be clear in the eyes of the peoples, who hearing all these laws will say, Truly, this great nation is a wise and far-seeing people.
05O||4||7||For what great nation has a god so near to them as the Lord our God is, whenever we are turned to him in prayer?
05O||4||8||And what great nation has laws and decisions so right as all this law which I put before you today?
05O||4||9||Only take care, and keep watch on your soul, for fear that the things which your eyes have seen go from your memory and from your heart all the days of your life; but let the knowledge of them be given to your children and to your children's children;
05O||4||10||That day when you were waiting before the Lord your God in Horeb, and the Lord said to me, Make all the people come together, so that hearing my words they may go in fear of me all the days of their life on earth and give this teaching to their children.
05O||4||11||And you came near, waiting at the foot of the mountain; and flames of fire went up from the mountain to the heart of heaven, with dark clouds, and all was black as night.
05O||4||12||And the voice of the Lord came to you out of the fire: the sound of his words came to your ears but you saw no form; there was nothing but a voice.
05O||4||13||And he gave you his agreement with you, the ten rules which you were to keep, which he put in writing on the two stones of the law.
05O||4||14||And the Lord gave me orders at that time to make clear to you these laws and decisions, so that you might do them in the land to which you are going, and which is to be your heritage.
05O||4||15||So keep watch on yourselves with care; for you saw no form of any sort on the day when the voice of the Lord came to you in Horeb out of the heart of the fire:
05O||4||16||So that you may not be turned to evil ways and make for yourselves an image in the form of any living thing, male or female,
05O||4||17||Or any beast of the earth, or winged bird of the air,
05O||4||18||Or of anything which goes flat on the earth, or any fish in the water under the earth.
05O||4||19||And when your eyes are lifted up to heaven, and you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the army of heaven, do not let yourselves be moved to give them worship, or become the servants of what the Lord has given equally to all peoples under heaven.
05O||4||20||But the Lord has taken you out of the flaming fire, out of Egypt, to be to him the people of his heritage, as you are today.
05O||4||21||And the Lord was angry with me because of you, and made an oath that I was not to go over Jordan into the good land which the Lord is giving you for your heritage:
05O||4||22||But death is to come to me in this land, I may not go over Jordan: but you will go over and take that good land for your heritage.
05O||4||23||Take care that you do not let the agreement of the Lord your God, which he has made with you, go out of your mind, or make for yourselves images of any sort, against the orders which the Lord your God has given you.
05O||4||24||For the Lord your God is an all-burning fire, and he will not let the honour which is his be given to any other.
05O||4||25||If, when you have had children and children's children, and have been living a long time in the land, you are turned to evil ways, and make an image of any sort, and do evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, moving him to wrath:
05O||4||26||May heaven and earth be my witnesses against you today, that destruction will quickly overtake you, cutting you off from that land which you are going over Jordan to take; your days will not be long in that land, but you will come to a complete end.
05O||4||27||And the Lord will send you wandering among the peoples; only a small band of you will be kept from death among the nations where the Lord will send you.
05O||4||28||There you will be the servants of gods, made by men's hands, of wood and stone, having no power of seeing or hearing or taking food or smelling.
05O||4||29||But if in those lands you are turned again to the Lord your God, searching for him with all your heart and soul, he will not keep himself from you.
05O||4||30||When you are in trouble and all these things have come on you, if, in the future, you are turned again to the Lord your God, and give ear to his voice:
05O||4||31||Because the Lord your God is a God of mercy, he will not take away his help from you or let destruction overtake you, or be false to the agreement which he made by an oath with your fathers.
05O||4||32||Give thought now to the days which are past, before your time, from the day when God first gave life to man on the earth, and searching from one end of heaven to the other, see if such a great thing as this has ever been, or if anything like it has been talked of in story.
05O||4||33||Has any people ever gone on living after hearing the voice of God out of the heart of the fire as you did?
05O||4||34||Has God ever before taken a nation for himself from out of another nation, by punishments and signs and wonders, by war and by a strong hand and a stretched-out arm and great acts of wonder and fear, as the Lord your God did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes?
05O||4||35||All this he let you see, so that you might be certain that the Lord is God and there is no other.
05O||4||36||Out of heaven itself his voice came to you, teaching you; and on earth he let you see his great fire; and his words came to your ears out of the heart of the fire.
05O||4||37||And because of his love for your fathers, he took their seed and made it his, and he himself, present among you, took you out of Egypt by his great power;
05O||4||38||Driving out before you nations greater and stronger than you, to take you into their land and give it to you for your heritage, as at this day.
05O||4||39||So today be certain, and keep the knowledge deep in your hearts, that the Lord is God, in heaven on high and here on earth; there is no other God.
05O||4||40||Then keep his laws and his orders which I give you today, so that it may be well for you and for your children after you, and that your lives may be long in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for ever.
05O||4||41||Then Moses had three towns marked out on the far side of Jordan looking to the east;
05O||4||42||To which anyone causing the death of his neighbour in error and not through hate, might go in flight; so that in one of these towns he might be kept from death:
05O||4||43||The names of the towns were Bezer in the waste land, in the table-land, for the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead for the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan for Manasseh.
05O||4||44||This is the law which Moses put before the children of Israel:
05O||4||45||These are the rules and the laws and the decisions which Moses gave to the children of Israel after they came out of Egypt;
05O||4||46||On the far side of Jordan, in the valley facing Beth-peor, in the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon, whom Moses and the children of Israel overcame after they had come out of Egypt:
05O||4||47||And they took his land for a heritage, and the land of Og, king of Bashan, the two kings of the Amorites, whose lands were on the other side of Jordan to the east;
05O||4||48||From Aroer on the edge of the valley of the Arnon as far as Mount Sion, which is Hermon,
05O||4||49||And all the Arabah on the far side of Jordan to the east, as far as the sea of the Arabah under the slopes of Pisgah.
05O||5||1||And Moses sent for all Israel, and said to them, Give ear, O Israel, to the laws and the decisions which I give you today, and give attention to them so that you may keep and do them.
05O||5||2||The Lord our God made an agreement with us in Horeb.
05O||5||3||The Lord did not make this agreement with our fathers but with us, who are all living and present here today.
05O||5||4||The word of the Lord came to you face to face on the mountain, out of the heart of the fire,
05O||5||5||(I was between the Lord and you at that time, to make clear to you the word of the Lord: because, through fear of the fire, you did not go up the mountain;) saying,
05O||5||6||I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house.
05O||5||7||You are to have no other gods but me.
05O||5||8||You may not make for yourselves an image in the form of anything in heaven or on earth or in the waters under the earth:
05O||5||9||You may not go down on your faces before them or give them worship: for I, the Lord your God, am a God who will not give his honour to another; and I will send punishment on the children for the wrongdoing of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation of my haters;
05O||5||10||And I will have mercy through a thousand generations on those who have love for me and keep my laws.
05O||5||11||You are not to make use of the name of the Lord your God for an evil purpose; whoever takes the Lord's name on his lips for an evil purpose will be judged as a sinner by the Lord.
05O||5||12||Keep the Sabbath day as a holy day, as you have been ordered by the Lord your God.
05O||5||13||On six days do all your work:
05O||5||14||But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; on that day do no work, you or your son or your daughter, or your man-servant or your woman-servant, or your ox or your ass or any of your cattle, or the man from a strange country who is living among you; so that your man-servant and your woman-servant may have rest as well as you.
05O||5||15||And keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord your God took you out of that land by his strong hand and his stretched-out arm: for this reason the Lord has given you orders to keep the Sabbath day.
05O||5||16||Give honour to your father and your mother, as you have been ordered by the Lord your God; so that your life may be long and all may be well for you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||5||17||Do not put anyone to death without cause.
05O||5||18||Do not be false to the married relation.
05O||5||19||Do not take the property of another.
05O||5||20||Do not give false witness against your neighbour;
05O||5||21||Or let your desire be turned to your neighbour's wife, or his house or his field or his man-servant or his woman-servant or his ox or his ass or anything which is your neighbour's.
05O||5||22||These words the Lord said to all of you together on the mountain, out of the heart of the fire, out of the cloud and the dark, with a great voice: and he said no more; he put them in writing on the two stones of the law and gave them to me.
05O||5||23||And after hearing the voice which came out of the dark while the mountain was burning with fire, all the heads of your tribes and your chiefs came to me,
05O||5||24||And said, The Lord has let us see his glory and his power, and his voice has come to us out of the fire: today we have seen that a man may go on living even after hearing the voice of God.
05O||5||25||Why then is death to be our fate? For if the voice of the Lord our God comes to us any more, death will overtake us, and we will be burned up in this great fire.
05O||5||26||For what man is there in all the earth, who, hearing the voice of the living God as we have, out of the heart of the fire, has been kept from death?
05O||5||27||Do you go near: and after hearing everything which the Lord our God has to say, give us an account of all he has said to you, and we will give ear, and do it.
05O||5||28||Then the Lord, hearing your words to me, said to me, The words which this people have said to you have come to my ears: what they have said is well said.
05O||5||29||If only they had such a heart in them at all times, so that they might go in fear of me and keep my orders and that it might be well for them and for their children for ever!
05O||5||30||Now say to them, Go back to your tents.
05O||5||31||But as for you, keep your place here by me, and I will give you all the orders and the laws and the decisions which you are to make clear to them, so that they may do them in the land which I am giving them for their heritage.
05O||5||32||Take care, then, to do whatever the Lord your God has given you orders to do; let there be no turning away to the right hand or to the left.
05O||5||33||Go on walking in the way ordered for you by the Lord your God, so that life may be yours and it may be well for you, and your days may be long in the land of your heritage.
05O||6||1||Now these are the orders and the laws and the decisions which the Lord your God gave me for your teaching, so that you might do them in the land of your heritage to which you are going:
05O||6||2||So that living in the fear of the Lord your God, you may keep all his laws and his orders, which I give you: you and your son and your son's son, all the days of your life; and so that your life may be long.
05O||6||3||So give ear, O Israel, and take care to do this; so that it may be well for you, and you may be greatly increased, as the Lord the God of your fathers has given you his word, in a land flowing with milk and honey.
05O||6||4||Give ear, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord:
05O||6||5||And the Lord your God is to be loved with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
05O||6||6||Keep these words, which I say to you this day, deep in your hearts;
05O||6||7||Teaching them to your children with all care, talking of them when you are at rest in your house or walking by the way, when you go to sleep and when you get up.
05O||6||8||Let them be fixed as a sign on your hand, and marked on your brow;
05O||6||9||Have them lettered on the pillars of your houses and over the doors of your towns.
05O||6||10||And when the Lord your God has taken you into the land which he gave his oath to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, that he would give you; with great and fair towns which were not of your building;
05O||6||11||And houses full of good things not stored up by you, and places for storing water which you did not make, and vine-gardens and olive-trees not of your planting; and you have taken food and are full;
05O||6||12||Then take care that you keep your hearts true to the Lord, who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house.
05O||6||13||Let the fear of the Lord your God be in your hearts, and be his servants, taking your oaths by his name.
05O||6||14||Do not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples round about you;
05O||6||15||For the Lord your God who is with you is a God who will not let his honour be given to another; or the wrath of the Lord will be burning against you, causing your destruction from the face of the earth.
05O||6||16||Do not put the Lord your God to the test as you did in Massah.
05O||6||17||Keep with care the orders of the Lord your God, and his rules and his laws which he has given you;
05O||6||18||And do what is upright and good in the eyes of the Lord your God, so that it may be well for you and you may go in and take for your heritage that good land from which the Lord undertook by an oath to your fathers,
05O||6||19||To send out from before you all those who are against you.
05O||6||20||And when your son says to you in time to come, What is the reason for these rules and laws and decisions which the Lord our God has given you?
05O||6||21||Then you will say to your son, We were servants under Pharaoh's yoke in Egypt; and the Lord took us out of Egypt with a strong hand:
05O||6||22||And the Lord did great signs and wonders against Egypt, and against Pharaoh and all his house, before our eyes:
05O||6||23||And he took us out from that place, guiding us here to give us this land, as he said in his oath to our fathers.
05O||6||24||And the Lord gave us orders to keep all these laws, in the fear of the Lord our God, so that it might be well for us for ever, and that he might keep us from death, as he has done to this day.
05O||6||25||And it will be our righteousness if we take care to keep all this order before the Lord our God as he has given it to us.
05O||7||1||When the Lord your God takes you into the land where you are going, which is to be your heritage, and has sent out the nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and stronger than you;
05O||7||2||And when the Lord has given them up into your hands and you have overcome them, give them up to complete destruction: make no agreement with them, and have no mercy on them:
05O||7||3||Do not take wives or husbands from among them; do not give your daughters to their sons, or take their daughters for your sons.
05O||7||4||For through them your sons will be turned from me to the worship of other gods: and the Lord will be moved to wrath against you and send destruction on you quickly.
05O||7||5||But this is what you are to do to them: their altars are to be pulled down and their pillars broken, and their holy trees cut down and their images burned with fire.
05O||7||6||For you are a holy people to the Lord your God: marked out by the Lord your God to be his special people out of all the nations on the face of the earth.
05O||7||7||The Lord did not give you his love or take you for himself because you were more in number than any other people; for you were the smallest of the nations:
05O||7||8||But because of his love for you, and in order to keep his oath to your fathers, the Lord took you out with the strength of his hand, making you free from the prison-house and from the hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt.
05O||7||9||Be certain, then, that the Lord your God is God; whose faith and mercy are unchanging, who keeps his word through a thousand generations to those who have love for him and keep his laws;
05O||7||10||Rewarding his haters to their face with destruction; he will have no mercy on his hater, but will give him open punishment.
05O||7||11||So keep the orders and the laws and the decisions which I give you today and do them.
05O||7||12||And it will be, that if you give attention to these decisions and keep and do them, then the Lord will keep his agreement with you and his mercy, as he said in his oath to your fathers.
05O||7||13||And he will give you his love, blessing you and increasing you: he will send his blessing on the offspring of your body and the fruit of your land, your grain and your wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock, in the land which by his oath to your fathers he undertook to give you.
05O||7||14||You will have greater blessings than any other people: no male or female among you or among your cattle will be without offspring.
05O||7||15||And the Lord will take away from you all disease, and will not put on you any of the evil diseases of Egypt which you have seen, but will put them on your haters.
05O||7||16||And you are to send destruction on all the peoples which the Lord your God gives into your hands; have no pity on them, and do not give worship to their gods; for that will be a cause of sin to you.
05O||7||17||If you say in your hearts, These nations are greater in number than we are: how are we to take their land from them?
05O||7||18||Have no fear of them, but keep well in mind what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt;
05O||7||19||The great punishments which your eyes saw, and the signs and the wonders and the strong hand and the stretched-out arm, by which the Lord your God took you out: so will the Lord your God do to all the peoples who are the cause of your fears.
05O||7||20||And the Lord will send a hornet among them, till all the rest who have kept themselves safe from you in secret places have been cut off.
05O||7||21||Have no fear of them: for the Lord your God is with you, a great God greatly to be feared.
05O||7||22||The Lord your God will send out the nations before you little by little; they are not to be rooted out quickly, for fear that the beasts of the field may be increased overmuch against you.
05O||7||23||But the Lord your God will give them up into your hands, overpowering them till their destruction is complete.
05O||7||24||He will give their kings into your hands, and you will put their names out of existence under heaven; there is not one of them who will not give way before you, till their destruction is complete.
05O||7||25||The images of their gods are to be burned with fire: have no desire for the gold and silver on them, and do not take it for yourselves, for it will be a danger to you: it is a thing disgusting to the Lord your God:
05O||7||26||And you may not take a disgusting thing into your house, and so become cursed with its curse: but keep yourselves from it, turning from it with fear and hate, for it is a cursed thing.
05O||8||1||Take care to keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may have life and be increased and go in and take as a heritage the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, undertook to give you.
05O||8||2||And keep in mind the way by which the Lord your God has taken you through the waste land these forty years, so that he might make low your pride and put you to the test, to see what was in your heart and if you would keep his orders or not.
05O||8||3||And he made low your pride and let you be without food and gave you manna for your food, a thing new to you, which your fathers never saw; so that he might make it clear to you that bread is not man's only need, but his life is in every word which comes out of the mouth of the Lord.
05O||8||4||Through all these forty years your clothing did not get old or your feet become tired.
05O||8||5||Keep in mind this thought, that as a son is trained by his father, so you have been trained by the Lord your God.
05O||8||6||Then keep the orders of the Lord your God, fearing him and walking in his ways.
05O||8||7||For the Lord your God is guiding you into a good land, a land of water-springs, of fountains, and deep streams flowing out from the valleys and the hills;
05O||8||8||A land of grain and vines and fig-trees and fair fruits; a land of oil-giving olive-trees and honey;
05O||8||9||Where there will be bread for you in full measure and you will be in need of nothing; a land where the very stones are iron and from whose hills you may get copper.
05O||8||10||And you will have food enough and be full, praising the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.
05O||8||11||Then take care that you are not turned away from the Lord your God and from keeping his orders and decisions and laws which I give you this day:
05O||8||12||And when you have taken food and are full, and have made fair houses for yourselves and are living in them;
05O||8||13||And when your herds and your flocks are increased, and your stores of silver and gold, and you have wealth of every sort;
05O||8||14||Take care that your hearts are not lifted up in pride, giving no thought to the Lord your God who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house;
05O||8||15||Who was your guide through that great and cruel waste, where there were poison-snakes and scorpions and a dry land without water; who made water come out of the hard rock for you;
05O||8||16||Who gave you manna for your food in the waste land, a food which your fathers had never seen; so that your pride might be broken and your hearts tested for your good in the end;
05O||8||17||Say not then, in your hearts, My power and the strength of my hands have got me this wealth.
05O||8||18||But keep in mind the Lord your God: for it is he who gives you the power to get wealth, so that he may give effect to the agreement which he made by his oath with your fathers, as at this day.
05O||8||19||And it is certain that if at any time you are turned away from the Lord your God, and go after other gods, to be their servants and to give them worship, destruction will overtake you.
05O||8||20||Like the nations which the Lord is cutting off before you, so you will be cut off; because you would not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God.
05O||9||1||Give ear, O Israel: today you are to go over Jordan, to take the heritage of nations greater and stronger than yourselves, and towns of great size with walls as high as heaven;
05O||9||2||A people great and tall, the sons of the Anakim, of whom you have knowledge and of whom it has been said, All are forced to give way before the sons of Anak.
05O||9||3||Be certain then today that it is the Lord your God who goes over before you like an all-burning fire; he will send destruction on them, crushing them before you; and you will send them in flight, putting an end to them quickly, as the Lord has said.
05O||9||4||And after the Lord has sent them in flight from before you, say not in your heart, Because of my righteousness the Lord has given me this land; when it is because of their evil-doing that the Lord is driving these nations out before you.
05O||9||5||Not for your righteousness or because your hearts are upright are you going in to take their land; but because of the evil-doing of these nations the Lord your God is driving them out from before you, and to give effect to his oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
05O||9||6||Be certain then that the Lord your God is not giving you this good land as a reward for your righteousness; for you are a stiff-necked people.
05O||9||7||Keep well in mind how you made the Lord your God angry in the waste land; from the day when you went out of Egypt till you came to this place, you have gone against the orders of the Lord.
05O||9||8||Again in Horeb you made the Lord angry, and in his wrath he would have put an end to you.
05O||9||9||When I had gone up into the mountain to be given the stones on which was recorded the agreement which the Lord made with you, I was on the mountain for forty days and forty nights without taking food or drinking water.
05O||9||10||And the Lord gave me the two stones with writing on them done by the finger of God: on them were recorded all the words which the Lord said to you on the mountain out of the heart of the fire, on the day of the great meeting.
05O||9||11||Then at the end of forty days and forty nights the Lord gave me those stones, the stones of the agreement.
05O||9||12||And the Lord said to me, Get up now, and go down quickly from this place; for the people you have taken out of Egypt have given themselves over to evil; they have quickly been turned from the way in which I gave them orders to go; they have made themselves a metal image.
05O||9||13||And then the Lord said to me, I have seen that this people is stiff-necked:
05O||9||14||Let me send destruction on them till their very name is cut off; and I will make of you a nation greater and stronger than they.
05O||9||15||So turning round I came down from the mountain, and the mountain was burning with fire; and the two stones of the agreement were in my hands.
05O||9||16||And I saw that you had done evil against the Lord, and had made for yourselves a metal image of a young ox: you had quickly been turned from the way in which the Lord had given you orders to go.
05O||9||17||And I let the stones go from my hands, and they were broken before your eyes.
05O||9||18||And I went down on my face before the Lord, as at the first, for forty days and forty nights, without taking food or drinking water, because of all your sin, in doing evil in the eyes of the Lord and moving him to wrath.
05O||9||19||For I was full of fear because of the wrath of the Lord which was burning against you, with your destruction in view. But again the Lord's ear was open to my prayer.
05O||9||20||And the Lord, in his wrath, would have put Aaron to death: and I made prayer for Aaron at the same time.
05O||9||21||And I took your sin, the image which you had made, and put it in the fire and had it hammered and crushed very small till it was only dust: and the dust I put in the stream flowing down from the mountain.
05O||9||22||Again at Taberah and at Massah and at Kibroth-hattaavah you made the Lord angry.
05O||9||23||And when the Lord sent you from Kadesh-barnea, saying, Go up and take the land which I have given you; you went against the orders of the Lord your God, and had no faith in him, and would not give ear to his voice.
05O||9||24||From the day when I first had knowledge of you, you have gone against the word of the Lord.
05O||9||25||So I went down on my face in prayer before the Lord for forty days and forty nights as I did at first; because the Lord had said that he would put an end to you.
05O||9||26||And I made prayer to the Lord and said, O Lord God, do not send destruction on your people and your heritage, to whom, by your great power, you have given salvation, whom you have taken out of Egypt by the strength of your hand.
05O||9||27||Keep in mind your servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, not looking at the hard heart of this people, or their evil-doing and their sin:
05O||9||28||Or it may be said in the land from which you have taken them, Because the Lord was not able to take them into the land which he said he would give them, and because of his hate for them, he has taken them out to put them to death in the waste land.
05O||9||29||But still they are your people and your heritage, whom you took out by your great power and by your stretched-out arm.
05O||10||1||At that time the Lord said to me, Make two other stones, cut like the first two, and come up to me on the mountain, and make an ark of wood.
05O||10||2||And I will put on the stones the words which were on the first stones which were broken by you, and you are to put them into the ark.
05O||10||3||So I made an ark of hard wood, and had two stones cut like the others, and went up the mountain with the stones in my hands.
05O||10||4||And he put on the stones, as in the first writing, the ten rules which the Lord gave you on the mountain out of the fire on the day of the great meeting: and the Lord gave the stones to me.
05O||10||5||And turning round I came down from the mountain and put the stones in the ark which I had made; and there they are as the Lord gave me orders.
05O||10||6||(And the children of Israel went on from Beeroth Bene-jaakan to Moserah: there death came to Aaron and he was put to rest in the earth; and Eleazar, his son, took his place as priest.
05O||10||7||From there they went on to Gudgodah, and from Gudgodah to Jotbathah, a land of streams of water.
05O||10||8||At that time the Lord had the tribe of Levi marked out to take up the ark of the Lord's agreement, to be before the Lord and to do his work and to give blessings in his name, to this day.
05O||10||9||For this reason Levi has no part or heritage for himself among his brothers: the Lord is his heritage, as the Lord your God said to him.)
05O||10||10||And I was in the mountain, as at the first time, for forty days and forty nights; and again the ears of the Lord were open to my prayer, and he did not send destruction on you.
05O||10||11||Then the Lord said to me, Get up and go on your journey before the people, so that they may go in and take the land which I said in my oath to their fathers that I would give them.
05O||10||12||And now, Israel, what would the Lord your God have you do, but to go in the fear of the Lord your God, walking in all his ways and loving him and doing his pleasure with all your heart and all your soul,
05O||10||13||Doing the orders of the Lord and keeping his laws which I give you this day for your good?
05O||10||14||The Lord your God is ruler of heaven, of the heaven of heavens, and of the earth with everything in it.
05O||10||15||But the Lord had delight in your fathers and love for them, marking out for himself their seed after them, even you, from all peoples, as at this day.
05O||10||16||Let your circumcision be of the heart, and put away your pride.
05O||10||17||For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, strong in power and greatly to be feared, who has no respect for any man's position and takes no rewards:
05O||10||18||Judging uprightly in the cause of the widow and of the child who has no father, and giving food and clothing in his mercy to the man from a strange country.
05O||10||19||So be kind to the man from a strange country who is living among you, for you yourselves were living in a strange country in the land of Egypt.
05O||10||20||Let the fear of the Lord your God be before you, give him worship and be true to him at all times, taking your oaths in his name.
05O||10||21||He is your God, the God of your praise, your God who has done for you all these works of power which your eyes have seen.
05O||10||22||Your fathers went down into Egypt with seventy persons; and now the Lord your God has made you like the stars of heaven in number.
05O||11||1||So have love for the Lord your God, and give him worship, and keep his laws and his decisions and his orders at all times.
05O||11||2||And be certain in your minds this day; for these words are not said to your children, who have had no experience of the training of the Lord your God, and who have not seen his great power or his strong hand and his stretched-out arm,
05O||11||3||Or his signs and wonders which he did in Egypt, to Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and all his land;
05O||11||4||And what he did to the army of Egypt, to their horses and their war-carriages; how he made the waters of the Red Sea come up over them when they went after you, and how the Lord put an end to them even to this day;
05O||11||5||And what he did for you in the waste land, till you came to this place;
05O||11||6||And what he did to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben; when they went down into the open mouth of the earth, with their families and their tents and every living thing which was theirs, before the eyes of all Israel:
05O||11||7||But your eyes have seen all the great works of the Lord which he has done.
05O||11||8||So keep all the orders which I give you today, so that you may be strong, and go in and take the land which is to be your heritage;
05O||11||9||And that your days may be long in the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers and to their seed after them, a land flowing with milk and honey.
05O||11||10||For the land where you are going is not like the land of Egypt from which you have come, where you put in your seeds, watering them with your foot, like a planted garden:
05O||11||11||But the land where you are going is a land of hills and valleys, drinking in the rain of heaven:
05O||11||12||A land cared for by the Lord your God: the eyes of the Lord your God are on it at all times from one end of the year to the other.
05O||11||13||And it will be that if you truly give ear to the orders which I put before you this day, loving the Lord your God and worshipping him with all your heart and all your soul,
05O||11||14||Then I will send rain on your land at the right time, the early rains and the late rains, so that you may get in your grain and your wine and your oil.
05O||11||15||And I will give grass in your fields for your cattle, so that you may have food in full measure.
05O||11||16||But take care that your hearts are not turned to false ways so that you become servants and worshippers of other gods;
05O||11||17||For if you do so, the wrath of the Lord will be burning against you, and the heaven will be shut up so that there is no rain and the land will give no fruit; and in a very little time you will be cut off from the good land which the Lord is giving you.
05O||11||18||So keep these words deep in your heart and in your soul, and have them fixed on your hand for a sign and marked on your brow;
05O||11||19||Teaching them to your children, and talking of them when you are at rest in your house or walking by the way, when you go to sleep and when you get up:
05O||11||20||Writing them on the pillars of your houses and over the doors of your towns:
05O||11||21||So that your days, and the days of your children, may be long in the land which the Lord by his oath to your fathers said he would give them, like the days of the eternal heavens.
05O||11||22||For if you take care to keep all the orders which I give you, and to do them; loving the Lord your God and walking in all his ways and being true to him:
05O||11||23||Then the Lord will send these nations in flight before you, and you will take the lands of nations greater and stronger than yourselves.
05O||11||24||Every place where you put your foot will be yours: from the waste land and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates as far as the Great Sea, will be the limits of your land.
05O||11||25||All people will give way before you: for the Lord your God will put the fear of you on all the land through which you go, as he has said.
05O||11||26||Today I put before you a blessing and a curse:
05O||11||27||The blessing if you give ear to the orders of the Lord your God, which I give you this day:
05O||11||28||And the curse if you do not give ear to the orders of the Lord your God, but let yourselves be turned from the way which I have put before you this day, and go after other gods which are not yours.
05O||11||29||And when the Lord your God has taken you into the land of your heritage, you are to put the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal.
05O||11||30||Are they not on the other side of Jordan, looking west, in the land of the Canaanites living in the Arabah, opposite Gilgal, by the holy tree of Moreh?
05O||11||31||For you are about to go over Jordan to take the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you, and it will be your resting-place.
05O||11||32||And you are to take care to keep all the laws and the decisions which I put before you today.
05O||12||1||These are the laws and the decisions which you are to keep with care in the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you to be your heritage all the days of your life on earth.
05O||12||2||You are to give up to the curse all those places where the nations, whom you are driving out, gave worship to their gods, on the high mountains and the hills and under every green tree:
05O||12||3||Their altars and their pillars are to be broken down, and their holy trees burned with fire, and the images of their gods cut down; you are to take away their names out of that place.
05O||12||4||Do not so to the Lord your God.
05O||12||5||But let your hearts be turned to the place which will be marked out by the Lord your God, among your tribes, to put his name there;
05O||12||6||And there you are to take your burned offerings and other offerings, and the tenth part of your goods, and the offerings to be lifted up to the Lord, and the offerings of your oaths, and those which you give freely from the impulse of your hearts, and the first births among your herds and your flocks;
05O||12||7||There you and all your families are to make a feast before the Lord your God, with joy in everything to which you put your hand, because the Lord has given you his blessing.
05O||12||8||You are not to do things then in the way in which we now do them here, every man as it seems right to him:
05O||12||9||For you have not come to the rest and the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||12||10||But when you have gone over Jordan and are living in the land which the Lord your God is giving you as your heritage, and when he has given you rest from all those on every side who are fighting against you, and you are living there safely;
05O||12||11||Then there will be a place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place for his name, and there you will take all the things which I give you orders to take: your burned offerings and other offerings, and the tenth part of your goods, and the offerings to be lifted up, and the offerings of your oaths which you make to the Lord;
05O||12||12||And you will be glad before the Lord your God, you and your sons and your daughters, and your men-servants and your women-servants, and the Levite who is with you in your house, because he has no part or heritage among you.
05O||12||13||Take care that you do not make your burned offerings in any place you see:
05O||12||14||But in the place marked out by the Lord in one of your tribes, there let your burned offerings be offered, and there do what I have given you orders to do.
05O||12||15||Only you may put to death animals, such as the gazelle or the roe, for your food in any of your towns, at the desire of your soul, in keeping with the blessing of the Lord your God which he has given you: the unclean and the clean may take of it.
05O||12||16||But you may not take the blood for food, it is to be drained out on the earth like water.
05O||12||17||In your towns you are not to take as food the tenth part of your grain, or of your wine or your oil, or the first births of your herds or of your flocks, or anything offered under an oath, or freely offered to the Lord, or given as a lifted offering;
05O||12||18||But they will be your food before the Lord your God in the place of his selection, where you may make a feast of them, with your son and your daughter, and your man-servant and your woman-servant, and the Levite who is living with you: and you will have joy before the Lord your God in everything to which you put your hand.
05O||12||19||See that you do not give up caring for the Levite as long as you are living in your land.
05O||12||20||When the Lord your God makes wide the limit of your land, as he has said, and you say, I will take flesh for my food, because you have a desire for it; then you may take whatever flesh you have a desire for.
05O||12||21||If the place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place for his name is far away from you, then take from your herds and from your flocks which the Lord has given you, as I have said, and have a meal of it in the towns where you may be living.
05O||12||22||It will be your food, like the gazelle and the roe; the unclean and the clean may take of it.
05O||12||23||But see that you do not take the blood for food; for the blood is the life; and you may not make use of the life as food with the flesh.
05O||12||24||Do not take it for food but let it be drained out on the earth like water.
05O||12||25||Do not take it for food; so that it may be well for you and for your children after you, while you do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
05O||12||26||But the holy things which you have, and the offerings of your oaths, you are to take to the place which will be marked out by the Lord:
05O||12||27||Offering the flesh and the blood of your burned offerings on the altar of the Lord your God; and the blood of your offerings is to be drained out on the altar of the Lord your God, and the flesh will be your food.
05O||12||28||Take note of all these orders I am giving you and give attention to them, so that it may be well for you and for your children after you for ever, while you do what is good and right in the eyes of the Lord your God.
05O||12||29||When the people of the land where you are going have been cut off before you by the Lord your God, and you have taken their land and are living in it;
05O||12||30||After their destruction take care that you do not go in their ways, and that you do not give thought to their gods, saying, How did these nations give worship to their gods? I will do as they did.
05O||12||31||Do not so to the Lord your God: for everything which is disgusting to the Lord and hated by him they have done in honour of their gods: even burning their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods.
05O||12||32||You are to keep with care all the words I give you, making no addition to them and taking nothing from them.
05O||13||1||If ever you have among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and he gives you a sign or a wonder,
05O||13||2||And the sign or the wonder takes place, and he says to you, Let us go after other gods, which are strange to you, and give them worship;
05O||13||3||Then give no attention to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God is testing you, to see if all the love of your heart and soul is given to him.
05O||13||4||But keep on in the ways of the Lord your God, fearing him and keeping his orders and hearing his voice, worshipping him and being true to him.
05O||13||5||And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is to be put to death; for his words were said with the purpose of turning you away from the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt and made you free from the prison-house; and of forcing you out of the way in which the Lord your God has given you orders to go. So you are to put away the evil from among you.
05O||13||6||If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or the wife of your heart, or the friend who is as dear to you as your life, working on you secretly says to you, Let us go and give worship to other gods, strange to you and to your fathers;
05O||13||7||Gods of the peoples round about you, near or far, from one end of the earth to the other;
05O||13||8||Do not be guided by him or give attention to him; have no pity on him or mercy, and give him no cover;
05O||13||9||But put him to death without question; let your hand be the first stretched out against him to put him to death, and then the hands of all the people.
05O||13||10||Let him be stoned with stones till he is dead; because it was his purpose to make you false to the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house.
05O||13||11||And all Israel, hearing of it, will be full of fear, and no one will again do such evil as this among you.
05O||13||12||And if word comes to you, in one of the towns which the Lord your God is giving you for your resting-place,
05O||13||13||That good-for-nothing persons have gone out from among you, turning the people of their town from the right way and saying, Let us go and give worship to other gods, of whom you have no knowledge;
05O||13||14||Then let a full search be made, and let questions be put with care; and if it is true and certain that such a disgusting thing has been done among you;
05O||13||15||Then take up arms against the people of that town and give it up to the curse, with all its cattle and everything in it.
05O||13||16||And take all the goods into the middle of its open space, burning the town and all its property with fire as an offering to the Lord your God; it is to be a waste for ever; there is to be no more building there.
05O||13||17||Keep not a thing of what is cursed for yourselves: so the Lord may be turned away from the heat of his wrath, and have mercy on you, and give you increase as he said in his oath to your fathers:
05O||13||18||So long as you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and keep all his orders which I give you today, and do what is right in the eyes of the Lord your God.
05O||14||1||You are the children of the Lord your God: you are not to make cuts on your bodies or take off the hair on your brows in honour of the dead;
05O||14||2||For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has taken you to be his special people out of all the nations on the face of the earth.
05O||14||3||No disgusting thing may be your food.
05O||14||4||These are the beasts which you may have for food: the ox, the sheep, and the goat;
05O||14||5||The hart, the gazelle, and the roe, the mountain goat and the pygarg and the antelope and the mountain sheep.
05O||14||6||Any beast which has a division in the horn of its foot and whose food comes back into its mouth to be crushed again, may be used for food.
05O||14||7||But even among these, there are some which may not be used for food: such as the camel, the hare, and the coney, which are unclean to you, because, though their food comes back, the horn of their feet is not parted in two.
05O||14||8||And the pig is unclean to you, because though it has a division in the horn of its foot, its food does not come back; their flesh may not be used for food or their dead bodies touched by you.
05O||14||9||And of the things living in the waters, you may take all those who have wings for swimming with and skins formed of thin plates.
05O||14||10||But any which have no skin-plates or wings for swimming, you may not take; they are unclean for you.
05O||14||11||All clean birds may be used for food.
05O||14||12||But these birds you may not take: the eagle and the gier-eagle and the ospray;
05O||14||13||The falcon and the kite, and birds of that sort;
05O||14||14||Every raven, and all birds of that sort;
05O||14||15||And the ostrich and the night-hawk and the sea-hawk and birds of that sort;
05O||14||16||The little owl and the great owl and the water-hen;
05O||14||17||And the pelican and the vulture and the cormorant;
05O||14||18||The stork and the heron and birds of that sort, and the hoopoe and the bat.
05O||14||19||Every winged thing which goes flat on the earth is unclean to you and may not be used as food.
05O||14||20||But all clean birds you may take.
05O||14||21||You may not have as food anything which has come to a natural death; the man from another country who is living with you may take it for food, or you may get a price for it from one of another nation; for you are a holy people to the Lord your God. The young goat is not to be cooked in its mother's milk.
05O||14||22||Put on one side a tenth of all the increase of your seed, produced year by year.
05O||14||23||And make a feast before the Lord your God, in the place which is to be marked out, where his name will be for ever, of the tenth part of your grain and your wine and your oil, and the first births of your herds and your flocks; so that you may have the fear of the Lord your God in your hearts at all times.
05O||14||24||And if the way is so long that you are not able to take these things to the place marked out by the Lord your God for his name, when he has given you his blessing, because it is far away from you;
05O||14||25||Then let these things be exchanged for money, and, taking the money in your hand, go to the place marked out by the Lord your God for himself;
05O||14||26||And with the money get whatever you have a desire for, oxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your soul's desire may be: and make a feast there before the Lord your God, and be glad, you and all your house;
05O||14||27||And give a thought to the Levite who is living among you, for he has no part or heritage in the land.
05O||14||28||At the end of every three years take a tenth part of all your increase for that year, and put it in store inside your walls:
05O||14||29||And the Levite, because he has no part or heritage in the land, and the man from a strange country, and the child who has no father, and the widow, who are living among you, will come and take food and have enough; and so the blessing of the Lord your God will be on you in everything you do.
05O||15||1||At the end of every seven years there is to be a general forgiveness of debt.
05O||15||2||This is how it is to be done: every creditor is to give up his right to whatever he has let his neighbour have; he is not to make his neighbour, his countryman, give it back; because a general forgiveness has been ordered by the Lord.
05O||15||3||A man of another nation may be forced to make payment of his debt, but if your brother has anything of yours, let it go;
05O||15||4||But there will be no poor among you; for the Lord will certainly give you his blessing in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage;
05O||15||5||If only you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and take care to keep all these orders which I give you today.
05O||15||6||For the Lord your God will give you his blessing as he has said: you will let other nations have the use of your money, but you will not make use of theirs; you will be rulers over a number of nations, but they will not be your rulers.
05O||15||7||If in any of your towns in the land which the Lord your God is giving you, there is a poor man, one of your countrymen, do not let your heart be hard or your hand shut to him;
05O||15||8||But let your hand be open to give him the use of whatever he is in need of.
05O||15||9||And see that there is no evil thought in your heart, moving you to say to yourself, The seventh year, the year of forgiveness is near; and so looking coldly on your poor countryman you give him nothing; and he will make an outcry to the Lord against you, and it will be judged as sin in you.
05O||15||10||But it is right for you to give to him, without grief of heart: for because of this, the blessing of the Lord your God will be on all your work and on everything to which you put your hand.
05O||15||11||For there will never be a time when there are no poor in the land; and so I give orders to you, Let your hand be open to your countrymen, to those who are poor and in need in your land.
05O||15||12||If one of your countrymen, a Hebrew man or woman, becomes your servant for a price and does work for you six years, in the seventh year let him go free.
05O||15||13||And when you make him free, do not let him go away with nothing in his hands:
05O||15||14||But give him freely from your flock and from your grain and your wine: in the measure of the wealth which the Lord your God has given you, you are to give to him.
05O||15||15||And keep in mind that you yourself were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God made you free: so I give you this order today.
05O||15||16||But if he says to you, I have no desire to go away from you; because you and your family are dear to him and he is happy with you;
05O||15||17||Then take a sharp-pointed instrument, driving it through his ear into the door, and he will be your servant for ever. And you may do the same for your servant-girl.
05O||15||18||Let it not seem hard to you that you have to send him away free; for he has been working for you for six years, which is twice the regular time for a servant: and the blessing of the Lord your God will be on you in everything you do.
05O||15||19||All the first males to come to birth in your herd and your flock are to be holy to the Lord your God: the first birth of your ox is not to be used for work, the wool of your first lamb is not to be cut.
05O||15||20||But year by year you and all your house are to take a meal of it before the Lord, in the place of his selection.
05O||15||21||But if it has any mark on it, if it is blind or has damaged legs, or if there is anything wrong with it, it may not be offered to the Lord your God.
05O||15||22||It may be used for food in your houses: the unclean and the clean may take of it, as of the gazelle and the roe.
05O||15||23||Only do not take its blood for food, but let it be drained out on the earth like water.
05O||16||1||Take note of the month of Abib and keep the Passover to the Lord your God: for in the month of Abib the Lord your God took you out of Egypt by night.
05O||16||2||The Passover offering, from your flock or your herd, is to be given to the Lord your God in the place marked out by him as the resting-place of his name.
05O||16||3||Take no leavened bread with it; for seven days let your food be unleavened bread, that is, the bread of sorrow; for you came out of the land of Egypt quickly: so the memory of that day, when you came out of the land of Egypt, will be with you all your life.
05O||16||4||For seven days let no leaven be used through all your land; and nothing of the flesh which is put to death in the evening of the first day is to be kept through the night till morning.
05O||16||5||The Passover offering is not to be put to death in any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you:
05O||16||6||But in the place marked out by the Lord your God as the resting-place of his name, there you are to put the Passover to death in the evening, at sundown, at that time of the year when you came out of Egypt.
05O||16||7||It is to be cooked and taken as food in the place marked out by the Lord: and in the morning you are to go back to your tents.
05O||16||8||For six days let your food be unleavened bread; and on the seventh day there is to be a holy meeting to the Lord your God; no work is to be done.
05O||16||9||Let seven weeks be numbered from the first day when the grain is cut.
05O||16||10||Then keep the feast of weeks to the Lord your God, with an offering freely given to him from the wealth he has given you:
05O||16||11||Then you are to be glad before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your man-servant and your woman-servant, and the Levite who is with you, and the man from a strange country, and the child without a father, and the widow, who are living among you, in the place marked out by the Lord your God as a resting-place for his name.
05O||16||12||And you will keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt: and you will take care to keep all these laws.
05O||16||13||You are to keep the feast of tents for seven days after you have got in all your grain and made your wine:
05O||16||14||You are to keep the feast with joy, you and your son and your daughter, your man-servant and your woman-servant, and the Levite, and the man from a strange country, and the child without a father, and the widow, who are living among you.
05O||16||15||Keep the feast to the Lord your God for seven days, in the place marked out by the Lord: because the blessing of the Lord your God will be on all the produce of your land and all the work of your hands, and you will have nothing but joy.
05O||16||16||Three times in the year let all your males come before the Lord your God in the place named by him; at the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of weeks, and the feast of tents: and they are not to come before the Lord with nothing in their hands;
05O||16||17||Every man is to give as he is able, in the measure of the blessing which the Lord your God has given you.
05O||16||18||You are to make judges and overseers in all your towns which the Lord your God gives you, for every tribe: and they are to be upright men, judging the people in righteousness.
05O||16||19||You are not to be moved in your judging by a man's position, you are not to take rewards; for rewards make the eyes of the wise man blind, and the decisions of the upright false.
05O||16||20||Let righteousness be your guide, so that you may have life, and take for your heritage the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||16||21||Let no holy tree of any sort be planted by the altar of the Lord your God which you will make.
05O||16||22||You are not to put up stone pillars, for they are hated by the Lord your God.
05O||17||1||No ox or sheep which has a mark on it or is damaged in any way may be offered to the Lord your God: for that is disgusting to the Lord your God.
05O||17||2||If there is any man or woman among you, in any of the towns which the Lord your God gives you, who does evil in the eyes of the Lord your God, sinning against his agreement,
05O||17||3||By becoming a servant of other gods and worshipping them or the sun or the moon or all the stars of heaven, against my orders;
05O||17||4||If word of this comes to your ears, then let this thing be looked into with care, and if there is no doubt that it is true, and such evil has been done in Israel;
05O||17||5||Then you are to take the man or woman who has done the evil to the public place of your town, and they are to be stoned with stones till they are dead.
05O||17||6||On the word of two or three witnesses, a man may be given the punishment of death; but he is not to be put to death on the word of one witness.
05O||17||7||The hands of the witnesses will be the first to put him to death, and after them the hands of all the people. So you are to put away the evil from among you.
05O||17||8||If you are not able to give a decision as to who is responsible for a death, or who is right in a cause, or who gave the first blow in a fight, and there is a division of opinion about it in your town: then go to the place marked out by the Lord your God;
05O||17||9||And come before the priests, the Levites, or before him who is judge at the time: and they will go into the question and give you a decision:
05O||17||10||And you are to be guided by the decision they give in the place named by the Lord, and do whatever they say:
05O||17||11||Acting in agreement with their teaching and the decision they give: not turning to one side or the other from the word they have given you.
05O||17||12||And any man who, in his pride, will not give ear to the priest whose place is there before the Lord your God, or to the judge, is to be put to death: you are to put away the evil from Israel.
05O||17||13||And all the people, hearing of it, will be full of fear and put away their pride.
05O||17||14||When you have come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, and have taken it for a heritage and are living in it, if it is your desire to have a king over you, like the other nations round about you;
05O||17||15||Then see that you take as your king the man named by the Lord your God: let your king be one of your countrymen, not a man of another nation who is not one of yourselves.
05O||17||16||And he is not to get together a great army of horses for himself, or make the people go back to Egypt to get horses for him: because the Lord has said, You will never again go back that way.
05O||17||17||And he is not to have a great number of wives, for fear that his heart may be turned away; or great wealth of silver and gold.
05O||17||18||And when he has taken his place on the seat of his kingdom, he is to make in a book a copy of this law, from that which the priests, the Levites, have in their care:
05O||17||19||And it is to be with him for his reading all the days of his life, so that he may be trained in the fear of the Lord his God to keep and do all the words of this teaching and these laws:
05O||17||20||So that his heart may not be lifted up over his countrymen, and he may not be turned away from the orders, to one side or the other: but that his life and the lives of his children may be long in his kingdom in Israel.
05O||18||1||The priests, the Levites, that is, all the tribe of Levi, will have no part or heritage with Israel: their food and their heritage will be the offerings of the Lord made by fire.
05O||18||2||And they will have no heritage among their countrymen: the Lord is their heritage, as he has said to them.
05O||18||3||And this is to be the priests' right: those who make an offering of a sheep or an ox are to give to the priest the top part of the leg and the two sides of the head and the stomach.
05O||18||4||And in addition you are to give him the first of your grain and wine and oil, and the first wool cut from your sheep.
05O||18||5||For he, and his sons after him for ever, have been marked out by the Lord your God from all your tribes, to do the work of priests in the name of the Lord.
05O||18||6||And if a Levite, moved by a strong desire, comes from any town in all Israel where he is living to the place marked out by the Lord;
05O||18||7||Then he will do the work of a priest in the name of the Lord his God, with all his brothers the Levites who are there before the Lord.
05O||18||8||His food will be the same as theirs, in addition to what has come to him as the price of his property.
05O||18||9||When you have come into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, do not take as your example the disgusting ways of those nations.
05O||18||10||Let there not be seen among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter go through the fire, or anyone using secret arts, or a maker of strange sounds, or a reader of signs, or any wonder-worker,
05O||18||11||Or anyone using secret force on people, or putting questions to a spirit, or having secret knowledge, or going to the dead for directions.
05O||18||12||For all who do such things are disgusting to the Lord; and because of these disgusting things the Lord your God is driving them out before you.
05O||18||13||You are to be upright in heart before the Lord your God.
05O||18||14||For these nations, whose land you are taking, give attention to readers of signs and to those using secret arts: but the Lord your God will not let you do so.
05O||18||15||The Lord your God will give you a prophet from among your people, like me; you will give ear to him;
05O||18||16||In answer to the request you made to the Lord your God in Horeb on the day of the great meeting, when you said, Let not the voice of the Lord my God come to my ears again, and let me not see this great fire any more, or death will overtake me.
05O||18||17||Then the Lord said to me, What they have said is well said.
05O||18||18||I will give them a prophet from among themselves, like you, and I will put my words in his mouth, and he will say to them whatever I give him orders to say.
05O||18||19||And whoever does not give ear to my words which he will say in my name, will be responsible to me.
05O||18||20||But the prophet who takes it on himself to say words in my name which I have not given him orders to say, or who says anything in the name of other gods, will come to his death.
05O||18||21||And if you say in your hearts, How are we to be certain that the word does not come from the Lord?
05O||18||22||When a prophet makes a statement in the name of the Lord, if what he says does not take place and his words do not come true, then his word is not the word of the Lord: the words of the prophet were said in the pride of his heart, and you are to have no fear of him.
05O||19||1||When the nations, whose land the Lord your God is giving you, have been cut off by him, and you have taken their place and are living in their towns and in their houses;
05O||19||2||You are to have three towns marked out in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.
05O||19||3||You are to make ready a way, and see that the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, is marked out into three parts, to which any taker of life may go in flight.
05O||19||4||This is to be the rule for anyone who goes in flight there, after causing the death of his neighbour in error and not through hate;
05O||19||5||For example, if a man goes into the woods with his neighbour for the purpose of cutting down trees, and when he takes his axe to give a blow to the tree, the head of the axe comes off, and falling on to his neighbour gives him a wound causing his death; then the man may go in flight to one of these towns and be safe:
05O||19||6||For if not, he who has the right of punishment may go running after the taker of life in the heat of his wrath, and overtake him because the way is long, and give him a death-blow; though it is not right for him to be put to death because he was not moved by hate.
05O||19||7||And so I am ordering you to see that three towns are marked out for this purpose.
05O||19||8||And if the Lord your God makes wide the limits of your land, as he said in his oath to your fathers, and gives you all the land which he undertook to give to your fathers;
05O||19||9||If you keep and do all these orders which I give you today, loving the Lord your God and walking ever in his ways; then let three more towns, in addition to these three, be marked out for you:
05O||19||10||So that in all your land, which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, no man may be wrongly put to death, for which you will be responsible.
05O||19||11||But if any man has hate for his neighbour, and waiting for him secretly makes an attack on him and gives him a blow causing his death, and then goes in flight to one of these towns;
05O||19||12||The responsible men of his town are to send and take him, and give him up to the one who has the right of punishment to be put to death.
05O||19||13||Have no pity on him, so that Israel may be clear from the crime of putting a man to death without cause, and it will be well for you.
05O||19||14||Your neighbour's landmark, which was put in its place by the men of old times, is not to be moved or taken away in the land of your heritage which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||19||15||One witness may not make a statement against a man in relation to any sin or wrongdoing which he has done: on the word of two or three witnesses a question is to be judged.
05O||19||16||If a false witness makes a statement against a man, saying that he has done wrong,
05O||19||17||Then the two men, between whom the argument has taken place, are to come before the Lord, before the priests and judges who are then in power;
05O||19||18||And the judges will have the question looked into with care: and if the witness is seen to be false and to have made a false statement against his brother,
05O||19||19||Then do to him what it was his purpose to do to his brother: and so put away the evil from among you.
05O||19||20||And the rest of the people, hearing of it, will be full of fear, and never again do such evil among you.
05O||19||21||Have no pity; let life be given for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
05O||20||1||When you go out to war against other nations, and come face to face with horses and war-carriages and armies greater in number than yourselves, have no fear of them: for the Lord your God is with you, who took you up out of the land of Egypt.
05O||20||2||And when you are on the point of attacking, let the priest come forward and say to the people,
05O||20||3||Give ear, O Israel: today you are going forward to the fight; let your heart be strong; do not let uncontrolled fear overcome you because of those who are against you;
05O||20||4||For the Lord your God goes with you, fighting for you to give you salvation from those who are against you.
05O||20||5||And let the overseers say to the people, If there is any man who has made for himself a new house and has not gone into it, let him go back to his house, so that in the event of his death in the fight, another may not take his house for himself.
05O||20||6||Or if any man has made a vine-garden without taking the first-fruits of it, let him go back to his house, so that in the event of his death in the fight, another may not be the first to make use of the fruit.
05O||20||7||Or if any man is newly married and has had no sex relations with his wife, let him go back to his house, so that in the event of his death in the fight, another man may not take her.
05O||20||8||And let the overseers go on to say to the people, If there is any man whose heart is feeble with fear, let him go back to his house before he makes the hearts of his countrymen feeble.
05O||20||9||Then, after saying these words to the people, let the overseers put captains over the army.
05O||20||10||When you come to a town, before attacking it, make an offer of peace.
05O||20||11||And if it gives you back an answer of peace, opening its doors to you, then all the people in it may be put to forced work as your servants.
05O||20||12||If however it will not make peace with you, but war, then let it be shut in on all sides:
05O||20||13||And when the Lord your God has given it into your hands, let every male in it be put to death without mercy.
05O||20||14||But the women and the children and the cattle and everything in the town and all its wealth, you may take for yourselves: the wealth of your haters, which the Lord your God has given you, will be your food.
05O||20||15||So you are to do to all the towns far away, which are not the towns of these nations.
05O||20||16||But in the towns of these peoples whose land the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, let no living thing be kept from death:
05O||20||17||Give them up to the curse; the Hittite, the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, as the Lord your God has given you orders:
05O||20||18||So that you may not take them as your example and do all the disgusting things which they do in the worship of their gods, so sinning against the Lord your God.
05O||20||19||If in war a town is shut in by your armies for a long time, do not let its trees be cut down and made waste; for their fruit will be your food; are the trees of the countryside men for you to take up arms against them?
05O||20||20||Only those trees which you are certain are not used for food may be cut down and put to destruction: and you are to make walls of attack against the town till it is taken.
05O||21||1||If, in the land which the Lord your God is giving you, you come across the dead body of a man in the open country, and you have no idea who has put him to death:
05O||21||2||Then your responsible men and your judges are to come out, and give orders for the distance from the dead body to the towns round about it to be measured;
05O||21||3||And whichever town is nearest to the body, the responsible men of that town are to take from the herd a young cow which has never been used for work or put under the yoke;
05O||21||4||And they are to take the cow into a valley where there is flowing water, and which is not ploughed or planted, and there the neck of the cow is to be broken:
05O||21||5||Then the priests, the sons of Levi, are to come near; for they have been marked out by the Lord your God to be his servants and to give blessings in the name of the Lord; and by their decision every argument and every blow is to be judged:
05O||21||6||And all the responsible men of that town which is nearest to the dead man, washing their hands over the cow whose neck was broken in the valley,
05O||21||7||Will say, This death is not the work of our hands and our eyes have not seen it.
05O||21||8||Have mercy, O Lord, on your people Israel whom you have made free, and take away from your people the crime of a death without cause. Then they will no longer be responsible for the man's death.
05O||21||9||So you will take away the crime of a death without cause from among you, when you do what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
05O||21||10||When you go out to war against other nations, and the Lord your God gives them up into your hands and you take them as prisoners;
05O||21||11||If among the prisoners you see a beautiful woman and it is your desire to make her your wife;
05O||21||12||Then take her back to your house; and let her hair and her nails be cut;
05O||21||13||And let her take off the dress in which she was made prisoner and go on living in your house and weeping for her father and mother for a full month: and after that you may go in to her and be her husband and she will be your wife.
05O||21||14||But if you have no delight in her, you are to let her go wherever she will; you may not take a price for her as if she was your property, for you have made use of her for your pleasure.
05O||21||15||If a man has two wives, one greatly loved and the other hated, and the two of them have had children by him; and if the first son is the child of the hated wife:
05O||21||16||Then when he gives his property to his sons for their heritage, he is not to put the son of his loved one in the place of the first son, the son of the hated wife:
05O||21||17||But he is to give his first son his birthright, and twice as great a part of his property: for he is the first-fruits of his strength and the right of the first son is his.
05O||21||18||If a man has a son who is hard-hearted and uncontrolled, who gives no attention to the voice of his father and mother, and will not be ruled by them, though they give him punishment:
05O||21||19||Then let his father and mother take him to the responsible men of the town, to the public place;
05O||21||20||And say to them, This son of ours is hard-hearted and uncontrolled, he will not give attention to us; he gives himself up to pleasure and strong drink.
05O||21||21||Then he is to be stoned to death by all the men of the town: so you are to put away the evil from among you; and all Israel, hearing of it, will be full of fear.
05O||21||22||If a man does a crime for which the punishment is death, and he is put to death by hanging him on a tree;
05O||21||23||Do not let his body be on the tree all night, but put it to rest in the earth the same day; for the man who undergoes hanging is cursed by God; so do not make unclean the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.
05O||22||1||If you see your brother's ox or his sheep wandering, do not go by without helping, but take them back to your brother.
05O||22||2||If their owner is not near, or if you are not certain who he is, then take the beast to your house and keep it till its owner comes in search of it, and then you are to give it back to him.
05O||22||3||Do the same with his ass or his robe or anything which has gone from your brother's keeping and which you have come across: do not keep it to yourself.
05O||22||4||If you see your brother's ox or his ass falling down on the road, do not go by without giving him help in lifting it up again.
05O||22||5||It is not right for a woman to be dressed in man's clothing, or for a man to put on a woman's robe: whoever does such things is disgusting to the Lord your God.
05O||22||6||If by chance you see a place which a bird has made for itself in a tree or on the earth, with young ones or eggs, and the mother bird seated on the young ones or on the eggs, do not take the mother bird with the young:
05O||22||7||See that you let the mother bird go, but the young ones you may take; so it will be well for you and your life will be long.
05O||22||8||If you are building a house, make a railing for the roof, so that the blood of any man falling from it will not come on your house.
05O||22||9||Do not have your vine-garden planted with two sorts of seed: or all of it may become a loss, the seed you have put in as well as the increase.
05O||22||10||Do not do your ploughing with an ox and an ass yoked together.
05O||22||11||Do not have clothing made of two sorts of thread, wool and linen together.
05O||22||12||On the four edges of your robe, with which your body is covered, put ornaments of twisted threads.
05O||22||13||If any man takes a wife, and having had connection with her, has no delight in her,
05O||22||14||And says evil things about her and gives her a bad name, saying, I took this woman, and when I had connection with her it was clear to me that she was not a virgin:
05O||22||15||Then let the girl's father and mother put before the responsible men of the town, in the public place, signs that the girl was a virgin:
05O||22||16||And let the girl's father say to the responsible men, I gave my daughter to this man for his wife, but he has no love for her;
05O||22||17||And now he has put shame on her, saying that she is not a virgin; but here is the sign that she is a virgin. Then they are to put her clothing before the responsible men of the town.
05O||22||18||Then the responsible men of the town are to give the man his punishment;
05O||22||19||They will take from him a hundred shekels of silver, which are to be given to the father of the girl, because he has given an evil name to a virgin of Israel: she will go on being his wife, he may never put her away all his life.
05O||22||20||But if what he has said is true, and she is seen to be not a virgin,
05O||22||21||Then they are to make the girl come to the door of her father's house and she will be stoned to death by the men of the town, because she has done evil and put shame on Israel, by acting as a loose woman in her father's house: so you are to put away evil from among you.
05O||22||22||If a man is taken in the act of going in to a married woman, the two of them, the man as well as the woman, are to be put to death: so you are to put away the evil from Israel.
05O||22||23||If a young virgin has given her word to be married to a man, and another man meeting her in the town, has connection with her;
05O||22||24||Then you are to take the two of them to the doorway of the town, and have them stoned to death; the young virgin, because she gave no cry for help, though it was in the town, and the man, because he has put shame on his neighbour's wife: so you are to put away evil from among you.
05O||22||25||But if the man, meeting such a virgin in the open country, takes her by force, then only the man is to be put to death;
05O||22||26||Nothing is to be done to the virgin, because there is no cause of death in her: it is the same as if a man made an attack on his neighbour and put him to death:
05O||22||27||For he came across her in the open country, and there was no one to come to the help of the virgin in answer to her cry.
05O||22||28||If a man sees a young virgin, who has not given her word to be married to anyone, and he takes her by force and has connection with her, and discovery is made of it;
05O||22||29||Then the man will have to give the virgin's father fifty shekels of silver and make her his wife, because he has put shame on her; he may never put her away all his life.
05O||22||30||A man may not take his father's wife or have sex relations with a woman who is his father's.
05O||23||1||No man whose private parts have been wounded or cut off may come into the meeting of the Lord's people.
05O||23||2||One whose father and mother are not married may not come into the meeting of the Lord's people, or any of his family to the tenth generation.
05O||23||3||No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their people to the tenth generation may come into the meeting of the Lord's people:
05O||23||4||Because they gave you no bread or water on your way, when you came out of Egypt: and they got Balaam, the son of Peor, from Pethor in Aram-naharaim to put curses on you.
05O||23||5||But the Lord your God would not give ear to Balaam, but let the curse be changed into a blessing to you, because of his love for you.
05O||23||6||Do nothing for their peace or well-being for ever.
05O||23||7||But have no hate for an Edomite, because he is your brother, or for an Egyptian, for you were living in his land.
05O||23||8||Their children in the third generation may come into the meeting of the Lord's people.
05O||23||9||When you go out to war and put your tents in position, keep from every evil thing.
05O||23||10||If any man among you becomes unclean through anything which has taken place in the night, he is to go out from the tent-circle and keep outside it:
05O||23||11||But when evening comes near, let him take a bath: and after sundown he may come back to the tents.
05O||23||12||Let there be a place outside the tent-circle to which you may go;
05O||23||13||And have among your arms a spade; and when you have been to that place, let that which comes from you be covered up with earth:
05O||23||14||For the Lord your God is walking among your tents, to keep you safe and to give up into your hands those who are fighting against you; then let your tents be holy, so that he may see no unclean thing among you, and be turned away from you.
05O||23||15||Do not give back to his master a servant who has gone in flight from his master and come to you:
05O||23||16||Let him go on living among you in whatever place is most pleasing to him: do not be hard on him.
05O||23||17||No daughter of Israel is to let herself be used as a loose woman for a strange god, and no son of Israel is to give himself to a man.
05O||23||18||Do not take into the house of the Lord your God, as an offering for an oath, the price of a loose woman or the money given to one used for sex purposes in the worship of the gods: for these two things are disgusting to the Lord your God.
05O||23||19||Do not take interest from an Israelite on anything, money or food or any other goods, which you let him have:
05O||23||20||From men of other nations you may take interest, but not from an Israelite: so that the blessing of the Lord your God may be on everything to which you put your hand, in the land which you are about to take as your heritage.
05O||23||21||When you take an oath to the Lord, do not be slow to give effect to it: for without doubt the Lord your God will make you responsible, and will put it to your account as sin.
05O||23||22||But if you take no oath, there will be no sin.
05O||23||23||Whatever your lips have said, see that you do it; for you gave your word freely to the Lord your God.
05O||23||24||When you go into your neighbour's vine-garden, you may take of his grapes at your pleasure, but you may not take them away in your vessel.
05O||23||25||When you go into your neighbour's field, you may take the heads of grain with your hand; but you may not put your blade to his grain.
05O||24||1||If a man takes a wife, and after they are married she is unpleasing to him because of some bad quality in her, let him give her a statement in writing and send her away from his house.
05O||24||2||And when she has gone away from him, she may become another man's wife.
05O||24||3||And if the second husband has no love for her and, giving her a statement in writing, sends her away; or if death comes to the second husband to whom she was married;
05O||24||4||Her first husband, who had sent her away, may not take her back after she has been wife to another; for that is disgusting to the Lord: and you are not to be a cause of sin in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage.
05O||24||5||A newly married man will not have to go out with the army or undertake any business, but may be free for one year, living in his house for the comfort of his wife.
05O||24||6||No one is to take, on account of a debt, the stones with which grain is crushed: for in doing so he takes a man's living.
05O||24||7||If a man takes by force one of his countrymen, the children of Israel, using him as his property or getting a price for him, that thief is to be put to death: so you are to put away evil from among you.
05O||24||8||In connection with the leper's disease, take care to keep and do every detail of the teaching of the priests, the Levites: as I gave them orders, so you are to do.
05O||24||9||Keep in mind what the Lord your God did to Miriam on the way, when you came out of Egypt.
05O||24||10||If you let your brother have the use of anything which is yours, do not go into his house and take anything of his as a sign of his debt;
05O||24||11||But keep outside till he comes out and gives it to you.
05O||24||12||If he is a poor man, do not keep his property all night;
05O||24||13||But be certain to give it back to him when the sun goes down, so that he may have his clothing for sleeping in, and will give you his blessing: and this will be put to your account as righteousness before the Lord your God.
05O||24||14||Do not be hard on a servant who is poor and in need, if he is one of your countrymen or a man from another nation living with you in your land.
05O||24||15||Give him his payment day by day, not keeping it back over night; for he is poor and his living is dependent on it; and if his cry against you comes to the ears of the Lord, it will be judged as sin in you.
05O||24||16||Fathers are not to be put to death for their children or children for their fathers: every man is to be put to death for the sin which he himself has done.
05O||24||17||Be upright in judging the cause of the man from a strange country and of him who has no father; do not take a widow's clothing on account of a debt:
05O||24||18||But keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God made you free: for this is why I give you orders to do this.
05O||24||19||When you get in the grain from your field, if some of the grain has been dropped by chance in the field, do not go back and get it, but let it be for the man from a strange land, the child without a father, and the widow: so that the blessing of the Lord your God may be on all the work of your hands.
05O||24||20||When you are shaking the fruit from your olive-trees, do not go over the branches a second time: let some be for the man from a strange land, the child without a father, and the widow.
05O||24||21||When you are pulling the grapes from your vines, do not take up those which have been dropped; let them be for the man from a strange land, the child without a father, and the widow.
05O||24||22||Keep in mind that you were a servant in the land of Egypt: for this is why I give you orders to do this.
05O||25||1||If there is an argument between men and they go to law with one another, let the judges give their decision for the upright, and against the wrongdoer.
05O||25||2||And if the wrongdoer is to undergo punishment by whipping, the judge will give orders for him to go down on his face and be whipped before him, the number of the blows being in relation to his crime.
05O||25||3||He may be given forty blows, not more; for if more are given, your brother may be shamed before you.
05O||25||4||Do not keep the ox from taking the grain when he is crushing it.
05O||25||5||If brothers are living together and one of them, at his death, has no son, the wife of the dead man is not to be married outside the family to another man: let her husband's brother go in to her and make her his wife, doing as it is right for a brother-in-law to do.
05O||25||6||Then the first male child she has will take the rights of the brother who is dead, so that his name may not come to an end in Israel.
05O||25||7||But if the man says he will not take his brother's wife, then let the wife go to the responsible men of the town, and say, My husband's brother will not keep his brother's name living in Israel; he will not do what it is right for a husband's brother to do.
05O||25||8||Then the responsible men of the town will send for the man, and have talk with him: and if he still says, I will not take her;
05O||25||9||Then his brother's wife is to come to him, before the responsible men of the town, and take his shoe off his foot, and put shame on him, and say, So let it be done to the man who will not take care of his brother's name.
05O||25||10||And his family will be named in Israel, The house of him whose shoe has been taken off.
05O||25||11||If two men are fighting, and the wife of one of them, coming to the help of her husband, takes the other by the private parts;
05O||25||12||Her hand is to be cut off; have no pity on her.
05O||25||13||Do not have in your bag different weights, a great and a small;
05O||25||14||Or in your house different measures, a great and a small.
05O||25||15||But have a true weight and a true measure: so that your life may be long in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||25||16||For all who do such things, and all whose ways are not upright, are disgusting to the Lord your God.
05O||25||17||Keep in mind what Amalek did to you on your way from Egypt;
05O||25||18||How, meeting you on the way, he made an attack on you when you were tired and without strength, cutting off all the feeble ones at the end of your line; and the fear of God was not in him.
05O||25||19||So when the Lord your God has given you rest from all who are against you on every side, in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for your heritage, see to it that the memory of Amalek is cut off from the earth; keep this in mind.
05O||26||1||Now when you have come into the land which the Lord is giving you for your heritage, and you have made it yours and are living in it;
05O||26||2||You are to take a part of the first-fruits of the earth, which you get from the land which the Lord your God is giving you, and put it in a basket, and go to the place marked out by the Lord your God, as the resting-place of his name.
05O||26||3||And you are to come to him who is priest at that time, and say to him, I give witness today before the Lord your God, that I have come into the land which the Lord made an oath to our fathers to give us.
05O||26||4||Then the priest will take the basket from your hand and put it down in front of the altar of the Lord your God.
05O||26||5||And these are the words which you will say before the Lord your God: My father was a wandering Aramaean, and he went down with a small number of people into Egypt; there he became a great and strong nation:
05O||26||6||And the Egyptians were cruel to us, crushing us under a hard yoke:
05O||26||7||And our cry went up to the Lord, the God of our fathers, and the Lord's ear was open to the voice of our cry, and his eyes took note of our grief and the crushing weight of our work:
05O||26||8||And the Lord took us out of Egypt with a strong hand and a stretched-out arm, with works of power and signs and wonders:
05O||26||9||And he has been our guide to this place, and has given us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.
05O||26||10||So now, I have come here with the first of the fruits of the earth which you, O Lord, have given me. Then you will put it down before the Lord your God and give him worship:
05O||26||11||And you will have joy in every good thing which the Lord your God has given to you and to your family; and the Levite, and the man from a strange land who is with you, will take part in your joy.
05O||26||12||When you have taken out a tenth from the tenth of all your produce in the third year, which is the year when this has to be done, give it to the Levite, and the man from a strange land, and the child without a father, and the widow, so that they may have food in your towns and be full;
05O||26||13||And say before the Lord your God, I have taken all the holy things out of my house and have given them to the Levite, and the man from a strange land, and him who has no father, and the widow, as you have given me orders: I have kept in mind all your orders, in nothing have I gone against them:
05O||26||14||No part of these things has been used for food in a time of weeping, or put away when I was unclean, or given for the dead: I have given ear to the voice of the Lord my God, and have done all you have given me orders to do.
05O||26||15||So, looking down from your holy place in heaven, send your blessing on your people Israel and on the land which you have given us, as you said in your oath to our fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey.
05O||26||16||Today the Lord your God gives you orders to keep all these laws and decisions: so then keep and do them with all your heart and all your soul.
05O||26||17||Today you have given witness that the Lord is your God, and that you will go in his ways and keep his laws and his orders and his decisions and give ear to his voice:
05O||26||18||And the Lord has made it clear this day that you are a special people to him, as he gave you his word; and that you are to keep all his orders;
05O||26||19||And that he will make you high over all the nations he has made, in praise, in name, and in honour, and that you are to be a holy people to the Lord your God as he has said.
05O||27||1||Then Moses and the responsible men of Israel gave the people these orders: Keep all the orders which I have given you this day;
05O||27||2||And on the day when you go over Jordan into the land which the Lord your God is giving you, put up great stones, coating them with building-paste,
05O||27||3||And writing on them all the words of this law, after you have gone over; so that you may take the heritage which the Lord your God is giving you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has said.
05O||27||4||And when you have gone over Jordan, you are to put up these stones, as I have said to you today, in Mount Ebal, and have them coated with building-paste.
05O||27||5||There you are to make an altar to the Lord your God, of stones on which no iron instrument has been used.
05O||27||6||You are to make the altar of the Lord your God of uncut stones; offering on it burned offerings to the Lord your God:
05O||27||7||And you are to make your peace-offerings, feasting there with joy before the Lord your God.
05O||27||8||And put on the stones all the words of this law, writing them very clearly.
05O||27||9||Then Moses and the priests, the Levites, said to all Israel, Be quiet and give ear, O Israel; today you have become the people of the Lord your God.
05O||27||10||For this cause you are to give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and do his orders and his laws which I give you this day.
05O||27||11||That same day Moses said to the people,
05O||27||12||These are to take their places on Mount Gerizim for blessing the people when you have gone over Jordan: Simeon and Levi and Judah and Issachar and Joseph and Benjamin;
05O||27||13||And these are to be on Mount Ebal for the curse: Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali.
05O||27||14||Then the Levites are to say in a loud voice to all the men of Israel,
05O||27||15||Cursed is the man who makes any image of wood or stone or metal, disgusting to the Lord, the work of man's hands, and puts it up in secret. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||16||Cursed is he who does not give honour to his father or mother. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||17||Cursed is he who takes his neighbour's landmark from its place. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||18||Cursed is he by whom the blind are turned out of the way. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||19||Cursed is he who gives a wrong decision in the cause of a man from a strange land, or of one without a father, or of a widow. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||20||Cursed is he who has sex relations with his father's wife, for he has put shame on his father. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||21||Cursed is he who has sex relations with any sort of beast. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||22||Cursed is he who has sex relations with his sister, the daughter of his father or of his mother. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||23||Cursed is he who has sex relations with his mother-in-law. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||24||Cursed is he who takes his neighbour's life secretly. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||25||Cursed is he who for a reward puts to death one who has done no wrong. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||27||26||Cursed is he who does not take this law to heart to do it. And let all the people say, So be it.
05O||28||1||Now if you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and keep with care all these orders which I have given you today, then the Lord your God will put you high over all the nations of the earth:
05O||28||2||And all these blessings will come on you and overtake you, if your ears are open to the voice of the Lord your God.
05O||28||3||A blessing will be on you in the town, and a blessing in the field.
05O||28||4||A blessing will be on the fruit of your body, and on the fruit of your land, on the fruit of your cattle, the increase of your herd, and the young of your flock.
05O||28||5||A blessing will be on your basket and on your bread-basin.
05O||28||6||A blessing will be on your coming in and on your going out.
05O||28||7||By the power of the Lord, those who take arms against you will be overcome before you: they will come out against you one way, and will go in flight from you seven ways.
05O||28||8||The Lord will send his blessing on your store-houses and on everything to which you put your hand: his blessing will be on you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
05O||28||9||The Lord will keep you as a people holy to himself, as he has said to you in his oath, if you keep the orders of the Lord your God and go on walking in his ways.
05O||28||10||And all the peoples of the earth will see that the name of the Lord is on you, and they will go in fear of you.
05O||28||11||And the Lord will make you fertile in every good thing, in the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your cattle, and the fruit of your fields, in the land which the Lord, by his oath to your fathers, said he would give you.
05O||28||12||Opening his store-house in heaven, the Lord will send rain on your land at the right time, blessing all the work of your hands: other nations will make use of your wealth, and you will have no need of theirs.
05O||28||13||The Lord will make you the head and not the tail; and you will ever have the highest place, if you give ear to the orders of the Lord your God which I give you today, to keep and to do them;
05O||28||14||Not turning away from any of the orders which I give you today, to the right hand or to the left, or going after any other gods to give them worship.
05O||28||15||But if you do not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, and take care to do all his orders and his laws which I give you today, then all these curses will come on you and overtake you:
05O||28||16||You will be cursed in the town and cursed in the field.
05O||28||17||A curse will be on your basket and on your bread-basin.
05O||28||18||A curse will be on the fruit of your body, and on the fruit of your land, on the increase of your cattle, and the young of your flock.
05O||28||19||You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out.
05O||28||20||The Lord will send on you cursing and trouble and punishment in everything to which you put your hand, till sudden destruction overtakes you; because of your evil ways in which you have been false to me.
05O||28||21||The Lord will send disease after disease on you, till you have been cut off by death from the land to which you are going.
05O||28||22||The Lord will send wasting disease, and burning pain, and flaming heat against you, keeping back the rain till your land is waste and dead; so will it be till your destruction is complete.
05O||28||23||And the heaven over your heads will be brass, and the earth under you hard as iron.
05O||28||24||The Lord will make the rain of your land powder and dust, sending it down on you from heaven till your destruction is complete.
05O||28||25||The Lord will let you be overcome by your haters: you will go out against them one way, and you will go in flight before them seven ways: you will be the cause of fear among all the kingdoms of the earth.
05O||28||26||Your bodies will be meat for all the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth; there will be no one to send them away.
05O||28||27||The Lord will send on you the disease of Egypt, and other sorts of skin diseases which nothing will make well.
05O||28||28||He will make your minds diseased, and your eyes blind, and your hearts wasted with fear:
05O||28||29||You will go feeling your way when the sun is high, like a blind man for whom all is dark, and nothing will go well for you: you will be crushed and made poor for ever, and you will have no saviour.
05O||28||30||You will take a wife, but another man will have the use of her: the house which your hands have made will never be your resting-place: you will make a vine-garden, and never take the fruit of it.
05O||28||31||Your ox will be put to death before your eyes, but its flesh will not be your food: your ass will be violently taken away before your face, and will not be given back to you: your sheep will be given to your haters, and there will be no saviour for you.
05O||28||32||Your sons and your daughters will be given to another people, and your eyes will be wasted away with looking and weeping for them all the day: and you will have no power to do anything.
05O||28||33||The fruit of your land and all the work of your hands will be food for a nation which is strange to you and to your fathers; you will only be crushed down and kept under for ever:
05O||28||34||So that the things which your eyes have to see will send you out of your minds.
05O||28||35||The Lord will send a skin disease, attacking your knees and your legs, bursting out from your feet to the top of your head, so that nothing will make you well.
05O||28||36||And you, and the king whom you have put over you, will the Lord take away to a nation strange to you and to your fathers; there you will be servants to other gods of wood and stone.
05O||28||37||And you will become a wonder and a name of shame among all the nations where the Lord will take you.
05O||28||38||You will take much seed out into the field, and get little in; for the locust will get it.
05O||28||39||You will put in vines and take care of them, but you will get no wine or grapes from them; for they will be food for worms.
05O||28||40||Your land will be full of olive-trees, but there will be no oil for the comfort of your body; for your olive-tree will give no fruit.
05O||28||41||You will have sons and daughters, but they will not be yours; for they will go away prisoners into a strange land.
05O||28||42||All your trees and the fruit of your land will be the locust's.
05O||28||43||The man from a strange land who is living among you will be lifted up higher and higher over you, while you go down lower and lower.
05O||28||44||He will let you have his wealth at interest, and will have no need of yours: he will be the head and you the tail.
05O||28||45||And all these curses will come after you and overtake you, till your destruction is complete; because you did not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, or keep his laws and his orders which he gave you:
05O||28||46||These things will come on you and on your seed, to be a sign and a wonder for ever;
05O||28||47||Because you did not give honour to the Lord your God, worshipping him gladly, with joy in your hearts on account of all your wealth of good things;
05O||28||48||For this cause you will become servants to those whom the Lord your God will send against you, without food and drink and clothing, and in need of all things: and he will put a yoke of iron on your neck till he has put an end to you.
05O||28||49||The Lord will send a nation against you from the farthest ends of the earth, coming with the flight of an eagle; a nation whose language is strange to you;
05O||28||50||A hard-faced nation, who will have no respect for the old or mercy for the young:
05O||28||51||He will take the fruit of your cattle and of your land till death puts an end to you: he will let you have nothing of your grain or wine or oil or any of the increase of your cattle or the young of your flock, till he has made your destruction complete.
05O||28||52||Your towns will be shut in by his armies, till your high walls, in which you put your faith, have come down: his armies will be round your towns, through all your land which the Lord your God has given you.
05O||28||53||And your food will be the fruit of your body, the flesh of the sons and daughters which the Lord your God has given you; because of your bitter need and the cruel grip of your haters.
05O||28||54||That man among you who is soft and used to comfort will be hard and cruel to his brother, and to his dear wife, and to of those his children who are still living;
05O||28||55||And will not give to any of them the flesh of his children which will be his food because he has no other; in the cruel grip of your haters on all your towns.
05O||28||56||The most soft and delicate of your women, who would not so much as put her foot on the earth, so delicate is she, will be hard-hearted to her husband and to her son and to her daughter;
05O||28||57||And to her baby newly come to birth, and to the children of her body; for having no other food, she will make a meal of them secretly, because of her bitter need and the cruel grip of your haters on all your towns.
05O||28||58||If you will not take care to do all the words of this law, recorded in this book, honouring that name of glory and of fear, THE LORD YOUR GOD;
05O||28||59||Then the Lord your God will make your punishment, and the punishment of your seed, a thing to be wondered at; great punishments and cruel diseases stretching on through long years.
05O||28||60||He will send on you again all the diseases of Egypt, which were a cause of fear to you, and they will take you in their grip.
05O||28||61||And all the diseases and the pains not recorded in the book of this law will the Lord send on you till your destruction is complete.
05O||28||62||And you will become a very small band, though your numbers were like the stars of heaven; because you did not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God.
05O||28||63||And as the Lord took delight in doing you good and increasing you, so the Lord will take pleasure in cutting you off and causing your destruction, and you will be uprooted from the land which you are about to take as your heritage.
05O||28||64||And the Lord will send you wandering among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other: there you will be servants to other gods, of wood and stone, gods of which you and your fathers had no knowledge.
05O||28||65||And even among these nations there will be no peace for you, and no rest for your feet: but the Lord will give you there a shaking heart and wasting eyes and weariness of soul:
05O||28||66||Your very life will be hanging in doubt before you, and day and night will be dark with fears, and nothing in life will be certain:
05O||28||67||In the morning you will say, If only it was evening! And at evening you will say, If only morning would come! Because of the fear in your hearts and the things which your eyes will see.
05O||28||68||And the Lord will take you back to Egypt again in ships, by the way of which I said to you, You will never see it again: there you will be offering yourselves as men-servants and women-servants to your haters for a price, and no man will take you.
05O||29||1||These are the words of the agreement which Moses was ordered by the Lord to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, in addition to the agreement which he made with them in Horeb.
05O||29||2||And Moses said in the hearing of all Israel, You have seen all the Lord did before your eyes in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh and to all his servants and all his land;
05O||29||3||The great tests which your eyes saw, and the signs and wonders:
05O||29||4||But even to this day the Lord has not given you a mind open to knowledge, or seeing eyes or hearing ears.
05O||29||5||For forty years I have been your guide through the waste land: your clothing has not become old on your backs, or your shoes on your feet.
05O||29||6||You have had no bread, or wine, or strong drink: so that you might see that I am the Lord your God.
05O||29||7||When you came to this place, Sihon, king of Heshbon, and Og, king of Bashan, came out to make war against us and we overcame them:
05O||29||8||And we took their land and gave it to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, for their heritage.
05O||29||9||So keep the words of this agreement and do them, so that it may be well for you in everything you do.
05O||29||10||You have come here today, all of you, before the Lord your God; the heads of your tribes, the overseers, and those who are in authority over you, with all the men of Israel,
05O||29||11||And your little ones, your wives, and the men of other lands who are with you in your tents, down to the wood-cutter and the servant who gets water for you:
05O||29||12||With the purpose of taking part in the agreement of the Lord your God, and his oath which he makes with you today:
05O||29||13||And so that he may make you his people today, and be your God, as he has said to you, and as he made an oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
05O||29||14||And not with you only do I make this agreement and this oath;
05O||29||15||But with everyone who is here with us today before the Lord our God, as well as with those who are not here:
05O||29||16||(For you have in mind how we were living in the land of Egypt; and how we came through all the nations which were on your way;
05O||29||17||And you have seen their disgusting doings, and the images of wood and stone and silver and gold which were among them:)
05O||29||18||So that there may not be among you any man or woman or family or tribe whose heart is turned away from the Lord our God today, to go after other gods and give them worship; or any root among you whose fruit is poison and bitter sorrow;
05O||29||19||If such a man, hearing the words of this oath, takes comfort in the thought that he will have peace even if he goes on in the pride of his heart, taking whatever chance may give him:
05O||29||20||The Lord will have no mercy on him, but the wrath of the Lord will be burning against that man, and all the curses recorded in this book will be waiting for him, and the Lord will take away his name completely from the earth.
05O||29||21||He will be marked out by the Lord, from all the tribes of Israel, for an evil fate, in keeping with all the curses of the agreement recorded in this book of the law.
05O||29||22||And future generations, your children coming after you, and travellers from far countries, will say, when they see the punishments of that land and the diseases which the Lord has sent on it;
05O||29||23||And that all the land is a salt and smoking waste, not planted or giving fruit or clothed with grass, but wasted like Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, on which the Lord sent destruction in the heat of his wrath:
05O||29||24||Truly all the nations will say, Why has the Lord done so to this land? what is the reason for this great and burning wrath?
05O||29||25||Then men will say, Because they gave up the agreement of the Lord, the God of their fathers, which he made with them when he took them out of the land of Egypt:
05O||29||26||And they went after other gods and gave them worship, gods who were strange to them, and whom he had not given them:
05O||29||27||And so the wrath of the Lord was moved against this land, to send on it all the curse recorded in this book:
05O||29||28||Rooting them out of their land, in the heat of his wrath and passion, and driving them out into another land, as at this day.
05O||29||29||The secret things are the Lord our God's: but the things which have been made clear are ours and our children's for ever, so that we may do all the words of this law.
05O||30||1||Now when all these things have come on you, the blessing and the curse which I have put before you, if the thought of them comes back to your minds, when you are living among the nations where the Lord your God has sent you,
05O||30||2||And your hearts are turned again to the Lord your God, and you give ear to his word which I give you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul:
05O||30||3||Then the Lord will have pity on you, changing your fate, and taking you back again from among all the nations where you have been forced to go.
05O||30||4||Even if those who have been forced out are living in the farthest part of heaven, the Lord your God will go in search of you, and take you back;
05O||30||5||Placing you again in the land of your fathers as your heritage; and he will do you good, increasing you till you are more in number than your fathers were.
05O||30||6||And the Lord your God will give to you and to your seed a circumcision of the heart, so that, loving him with all your heart and all your soul, you may have life.
05O||30||7||And the Lord your God will put all these curses on those who are against you, and on your haters who put a cruel yoke on you.
05O||30||8||And you will again give ear to the voice of the Lord, and do all his orders which I have given you today.
05O||30||9||And the Lord your God will make you fertile in all good things, blessing the work of your hands, and the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your cattle, and the fruit of your land: for the Lord will have joy in you, as he had in your fathers:
05O||30||10||If you give ear to the voice of the Lord your God, keeping his orders and his laws which are recorded in this book of the law, and turning to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
05O||30||11||For these orders which I have given you today are not strange and secret, and are not far away.
05O||30||12||They are not in heaven, for you to say, Who will go up to heaven for us and give us knowledge of them so that we may do them?
05O||30||13||And they are not across the sea, for you to say, Who will go over the sea for us and give us news of them so that we may do them?
05O||30||14||But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, so that you may do it.
05O||30||15||See, I have put before you today, life and good, and death and evil;
05O||30||16||In giving you orders today to have love for the Lord your God, to go in his ways and keep his laws and his orders and his decisions, so that you may have life and be increased, and that the blessing of the Lord your God may be with you in the land where you are going, the land of your heritage.
05O||30||17||But if your heart is turned away and your ear is shut, and you go after those who would make you servants and worshippers of other gods:
05O||30||18||I give witness against you this day that destruction will certainly be your fate, and your days will be cut short in the land where you are going, the land of your heritage on the other side of Jordan.
05O||30||19||Let heaven and earth be my witnesses against you this day that I have put before you life and death, a blessing and a curse: so take life for yourselves and for your seed:
05O||30||20||In loving the Lord your God, hearing his voice and being true to him: for he is your life and by him will your days be long: so that you may go on living in the land which the Lord gave by an oath to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
05O||31||1||So Moses said all these things to Israel.
05O||31||2||Then he said to them, I am now a hundred and twenty years old; I am no longer able to go out and come in: and the Lord has said to me, You are not to go over Jordan.
05O||31||3||The Lord your God, he will go over before you; he will send destruction on all those nations, and you will take their land as your heritage: and Joshua will go over at your head as the Lord has said.
05O||31||4||The Lord will do to them as he did to Sihon and to Og, the kings of the Amorites, and to their land, whom he put to destruction.
05O||31||5||The Lord will give them up into your hands, and you are to do to them as I have given you orders.
05O||31||6||Be strong and take heart, and have no fear of them: for it is the Lord your God who is going with you; he will not take away his help from you.
05O||31||7||Then Moses sent for Joshua, and before the eyes of all Israel said to him, Be strong and take heart: for you are to go with this people into the land which the Lord, by his oath to their fathers, has given them; by your help they will take it for their heritage.
05O||31||8||It is the Lord who goes before you; he will be with you, he will not take away his help from you or give you up: so have no fear.
05O||31||9||Then Moses put all this law in writing, and gave it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who take up the ark of the Lord's agreement, and to all the responsible men of Israel.
05O||31||10||And Moses said to them, At the end of every seven years, at the time fixed for the ending of debts, at the feast of tents,
05O||31||11||When all Israel has come before the Lord your God in the place named by him, let a reading be given of this law in the hearing of all Israel.
05O||31||12||Make all the people come together, men and women and children, and anyone from another country who is with you, so that hearing they may become wise in the fear of the Lord your God, and take care to do all the words of this law;
05O||31||13||And so that your children, to whom it is new, may give ear and be trained in the fear of the Lord your God, while you are living in the land which you are going over Jordan to take for your heritage.
05O||31||14||At that time the Lord said to Moses, The day of your death is near: send for Joshua, and come to the Tent of meeting so that I may give him his orders. So Moses and Joshua went to the Tent of meeting.
05O||31||15||And the Lord was seen in the Tent in a pillar of cloud resting by the door of the Tent.
05O||31||16||And the Lord said to Moses, Now you are going to rest with your fathers; and this people will be false to me, uniting themselves to the strange gods of the land where they are going; they will be turned away from me and will not keep the agreement I have made with them.
05O||31||17||In that day my wrath will be moved against them, and I will be turned away from them, veiling my face from them, and destruction will overtake them, and unnumbered evils and troubles will come on them; so that in that day they will say, Have not these evils come on us because our God is not with us?
05O||31||18||Truly, my face will be turned away from them in that day, because of all the evil they have done in going after other gods.
05O||31||19||Make then this song for yourselves, teaching it to the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, so that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.
05O||31||20||For when I have taken them into the land named in my oath to their fathers, a land flowing with milk and honey, and they have made themselves full of food and are fat, then they will be turned to other gods and will give them worship, no longer honouring me or keeping my agreement.
05O||31||21||Then when evils and troubles without number have overtaken them, this song will be a witness to them, for the words of it will be clear in the memories of their children: for I see the thoughts which are moving in their hearts even now, before I have taken them into the land of my oath.
05O||31||22||So that same day Moses made this song, teaching it to the children of Israel.
05O||31||23||Then he gave orders to Joshua, the son of Nun, saying to him, Be strong and take heart: for you are to go at the head of the children of Israel into the land which I made an oath to give them; and I will be with you.
05O||31||24||Now after writing all the words of this law in a book till the record of them was complete,
05O||31||25||Moses said to the Levites who were responsible for taking up the ark of the Lord's agreement,
05O||31||26||Take this book of the law and put it by the ark of the Lord's agreement, so that it may be a witness against you.
05O||31||27||For I have knowledge of your hard and uncontrolled hearts: even now, while I am still living, you will not be ruled by the Lord; how much less after my death?
05O||31||28||Get together before me all those who are in authority in your tribes, and your overseers, so that I may say these things in their hearing, and make heaven and earth my witnesses against them.
05O||31||29||For I am certain that after my death you will give yourselves up to sin, wandering from the way which I have given you; and evil will overtake you in the end, because you will do evil in the eyes of the Lord, moving him to wrath by the work of your hands.
05O||31||30||Then in the hearing of all the meeting of Israel, Moses said the words of this song, to the end.
05O||32||1||Give ear, O heavens, to my voice; let the earth take note of the words of my mouth:
05O||32||2||My teaching is dropping like rain, coming down like dew on the fields; like rain on the young grass and showers on the garden plants:
05O||32||3||For I will give honour to the name of the Lord: let our God be named great.
05O||32||4||He is the Rock, complete is his work; for all his ways are righteousness: a God without evil who keeps faith, true and upright is he.
05O||32||5||They have become false, they are not his children, the mark of sin is on them; they are an evil and hard-hearted generation.
05O||32||6||Is this your answer to the Lord, O foolish people and unwise? Is he not your father who has given you life? He has made you and given you your place.
05O||32||7||Keep in mind the days of the past, give thought to the years of generations gone by: go to your father and he will make it clear to you, to the old men and they will give you the story.
05O||32||8||When the Most High gave the nations their heritage, separating into groups the children of men, he had the limits of the peoples marked out, keeping in mind the number of the children of Israel.
05O||32||9||For the Lord's wealth is his people; Jacob is the land of his heritage.
05O||32||10||He came to him in the waste land, in the unpeopled waste of sand: putting his arms round him and caring for him, he kept him as the light of his eye.
05O||32||11||As an eagle, teaching her young to make their flight, with her wings outstretched over them, takes them up on her strong feathers:
05O||32||12||So the Lord only was his guide, no other god was with him.
05O||32||13||He put him on the high places of the earth, his food was the increase of the field; honey he gave him out of the rock and oil out of the hard rock;
05O||32||14||Butter from his cows and milk from his sheep, with fat of lambs and sheep of Bashan, and goats, and the heart of the grain; and for your drink, wine from the blood of the grape.
05O||32||15||But Jeshurun became fat and would not be controlled: you have become fat, you are thick and full of food: then he was untrue to the God who made him, giving no honour to the Rock of his salvation.
05O||32||16||The honour which was his they gave to strange gods; by their disgusting ways he was moved to wrath.
05O||32||17||They made offerings to evil spirits which were not God, to gods who were strange to them, which had newly come up, not feared by your fathers.
05O||32||18||You have no thought for the Rock, your father, you have no memory of the God who gave you birth.
05O||32||19||And the Lord saw with disgust the evil-doing of his sons and daughters.
05O||32||20||And he said, My face will be veiled from them, I will see what their end will be: for they are an uncontrolled generation, children in whom is no faith.
05O||32||21||They have given my honour to that which is not God, moving me to wrath with their false worship: I will give their honour to those who are not a people, moving them to wrath by a foolish nation,
05O||32||22||For my wrath is a flaming fire, burning to the deep parts of the underworld, burning up the earth with her increase, and firing the deep roots of the mountains.
05O||32||23||I will send a rain of troubles on them, my arrows will be showered on them.
05O||32||24||They will be wasted from need of food, and overcome by burning heat and bitter destruction; and the teeth of beasts I will send on them, with the poison of the worms of the dust.
05O||32||25||Outside they will be cut off by the sword, and in the inner rooms by fear; death will take the young man and the virgin, the baby at the breast and the grey-haired man.
05O||32||26||I said I would send them wandering far away, I would make all memory of them go from the minds of men:
05O||32||27||But for the fear that their haters, uplifted in their pride, might say, Our hand is strong, the Lord has not done all this.
05O||32||28||For they are a nation without wisdom; there is no sense in them.
05O||32||29||If only they were wise, if only this was clear to them, and they would give thought to their future!
05O||32||30||How would it be possible for one to overcome a thousand, and two to send ten thousand in flight, if their rock had not let them go, if the Lord had not given them up?
05O||32||31||For their rock is not like our Rock, even our haters themselves being judges.
05O||32||32||For their vine is the vine of Sodom, from the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are the grapes of evil, and the berries are bitter:
05O||32||33||Their wine is the poison of dragons, the cruel poison of snakes.
05O||32||34||Is not this among my secrets, kept safe in my store-house?
05O||32||35||Punishment is mine and reward, at the time of the slipping of their feet: for the day of their downfall is near, sudden will be their fate.
05O||32||36||For the Lord will be judge of his people, he will have pity for his servants; when he sees that their power is gone, there is no one, shut up or free.
05O||32||37||And he will say, Where are their gods, the rock in which they put their faith?
05O||32||38||Who took the fat of their offerings, and the wine of their drink offering? Let them now come to your help, let them be your salvation.
05O||32||39||See now, I myself am he; there is no other god but me: giver of death and life, wounding and making well: and no one has power to make you free from my hand.
05O||32||40||For lifting up my hand to heaven I say, By my unending life,
05O||32||41||If I make sharp my shining sword, and my hand is outstretched for judging, I will give punishment to those who are against me, and their right reward to my haters.
05O||32||42||I will make my arrows red with blood, my sword will be feasting on flesh, with the blood of the dead and the prisoners, of the long-haired heads of my haters.
05O||32||43||Be glad, O you his people, over the nations; for he will take payment for the blood of his servants, and will give punishment to his haters, and take away the sin of his land, for his people.
05O||32||44||So Moses said all the words of this song in the hearing of the people, he and Hoshea, the son of Nun.
05O||32||45||And after saying all this to the people,
05O||32||46||Moses said to them, Let the words which I have said to you today go deep into your hearts, and give orders to your children to do every word of this law.
05O||32||47||And this is no small thing for you, but it is your life, and through this you may make your days long in the land which you are going over Jordan to take for your heritage.
05O||32||48||That same day the Lord said to Moses,
05O||32||49||Go up into this mountain of Abarim, to Mount Nebo in the land of Moab opposite Jericho; there you may see the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel for their heritage:
05O||32||50||And let death come to you on the mountain where you are going, and be put to rest with your people; as death came to Aaron, your brother, on Mount Hor, where he was put to rest with his people:
05O||32||51||Because of your sin against me before the children of Israel at the waters of Meribath Kadesh in the waste land of Zin; because you did not keep my name holy among the children of Israel.
05O||32||52||So you will see the land before you, but you will not go into the land which I am giving to the children of Israel.
05O||33||1||Now this is the blessing which Moses, the man of God, gave to the children of Israel before his death.
05O||33||2||He said, The Lord came from Sinai, dawning on them from Seir; shining out from Mount Paran, coming from Meribath Kadesh: from his right hand went flames of fire: his wrath made waste the peoples.
05O||33||3||All his holy ones are at his hand; they go at his feet; they are lifted up on his wings.
05O||33||4||Moses gave us a law, a heritage for the people of Jacob.
05O||33||5||And there was a king in Jeshurun, when the heads of the people and the tribes of Israel came together.
05O||33||6||Let life not death be Reuben's, let not the number of his men be small.
05O||33||7||And this is the blessing of Judah: he said, Give ear, O Lord, to the voice of Judah and make him one with his people: let your hands take up his cause, and be his help against his attackers.
05O||33||8||And of Levi he said, Give your Thummim to Levi and let the Urim be with your loved one, whom you put to the test at Massah, with whom you were angry at the waters of Meribah;
05O||33||9||Who said of his father, Who is he? and of his mother, I have not seen her; he kept himself separate from his brothers and had no knowledge of his children: for they have given ear to your word and kept your agreement.
05O||33||10||They will be the teachers of your decisions to Jacob and of your law to Israel: the burning of perfumes before you will be their right, and the ordering of burned offerings on your altar.
05O||33||11||Let your blessing, O Lord, be on his substance, may the work of his hands be pleasing to you: may those who take up arms against him and all who have hate for him, be wounded through the heart, never to be lifted up again.
05O||33||12||And of Benjamin he said, Benjamin is the loved one of the Lord, he will be kept safe at all times; he will be covered by the Most High, resting between his arms.
05O||33||13||And of Joseph he said, Let the blessing of the Lord be on his land; for the good things of heaven on high, and the deep waters flowing under the earth,
05O||33||14||And the good things of the fruits of the sun, and the good things of the growth of the moons,
05O||33||15||And the chief things of the oldest mountains, and the good things of the eternal hills,
05O||33||16||The good things of the earth and all its wealth, the good pleasure of him who was seen in the burning tree: may they come on the head of Joseph, on the head of him who was prince among his brothers.
05O||33||17||He is a young ox, glory is his; his horns are the horns of the mountain ox, with which all peoples will be wounded, even to the ends of the earth: they are the ten thousands of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh.
05O||33||18||And of Zebulun he said, Be glad, Zebulun, in your going out; and, Issachar, in your tents.
05O||33||19||They will send out the word for the people to come to the mountain, taking there the offerings of righteousness: for the store of the seas will be theirs, and the secret wealth of the sand.
05O||33||20||Of Gad he said, A blessing be on him who makes wide the limits of Gad: he takes his rest like a she-lion, taking for himself the arm and the crown of the head.
05O||33||21||He kept for himself the first part, for his was the ruler's right: he put in force the righteousness of the Lord, and his decisions for Israel.
05O||33||22||And of Dan he said, Dan is a young lion, springing out from Bashan.
05O||33||23||And of Naphtali he said, O Naphtali, made glad with grace and full of the blessing of the Lord: the sea and its fishes will be his.
05O||33||24||And of Asher he said, Let Asher have the blessing of children; may he be pleasing to his brothers, and let his foot be wet with oil.
05O||33||25||Your shoes will be iron and brass; and as your days, so may your work be.
05O||33||26||No other is like the God of Jeshurun, coming on the heavens to your help, and letting his glory be seen in the skies.
05O||33||27||The God of your fathers is your safe resting-place, and under you are his eternal arms: driving out the forces of your haters from before you, he said, Let destruction overtake them.
05O||33||28||And Israel is living in peace, the fountain of Jacob by himself, in a land of grain and wine, with dew dropping from the heavens.
05O||33||29||Happy are you, O Israel: who is like you, a people whose saviour is the Lord, whose help is your cover, whose sword is your strength! All those who are against you will put themselves under your rule, and your feet will be planted on their high places.
05O||34||1||And Moses went up from the table-lands of Moab to Mount Nebo, to the top of Pisgah which is facing Jericho. And the Lord let him see all the land, the land of Gilead as far as Dan;
05O||34||2||And all Naphtali and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, as far as the Great Sea of the west;
05O||34||3||And the South, and the circle of the valley of Jericho, the town of palm-trees, as far as Zoar.
05O||34||4||And the Lord said to him, This is the land about which I made an oath to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I will give it to your seed: now I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not go in there.
05O||34||5||So death came to Moses, the servant of the Lord, there in the land of Moab, as the Lord had said.
05O||34||6||And the Lord put him to rest in the valley in the land of Moab opposite Beth-peor: but no man has knowledge of his resting-place to this day.
05O||34||7||And Moses at his death was a hundred and twenty years old: his eye had not become clouded, or his natural force become feeble.
05O||34||8||For thirty days the children of Israel were weeping for Moses in the table-lands of Moab, till the days of weeping and sorrow for Moses were ended.
05O||34||9||And Joshua, the son of Nun, was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had put his hands on him: and the children of Israel gave ear to him, and did as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
05O||34||10||There has never been another prophet in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord had knowledge of face to face;
05O||34||11||In all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and all his land;
05O||34||12||And in all the acts of power and fear which Moses did before the eyes of all Israel.
06O||1||1||Now after the death of Moses, the servant of the Lord, the word of the Lord came to Joshua, the son of Nun, Moses' helper, saying,
06O||1||2||Moses my servant is dead; so now get up! Go over Jordan, you and all this people, into the land which I am giving to them, to the children of Israel.
06O||1||3||Every place on which you put your foot I have given to you, as I said to Moses.
06O||1||4||From the waste land and this mountain Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, and all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea, in the west, will be your country.
06O||1||5||While you are living, all will give way before you: as I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not take away my help from you or give you up.
06O||1||6||Take heart and be strong; for you will give to this people for their heritage the land which I gave by an oath to their fathers.
06O||1||7||Only take heart and be very strong; take care to do all the law which Moses my servant gave you, not turning from it to the right hand or to the left, so that you may do well in all your undertakings.
06O||1||8||Let this book of the law be ever on your lips and in your thoughts day and night, so that you may keep with care everything in it; then a blessing will be on all your way, and you will do well.
06O||1||9||Have I not given you your orders? Take heart and be strong; have no fear and do not be troubled; for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go,
06O||1||10||Then Joshua gave their orders to those who were in authority over the people, saying,
06O||1||11||Go through the tents and give orders to the people, saying, Get ready a store of food; for in three days you are to go over this river Jordan and take for your heritage the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
06O||1||12||And to the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said,
06O||1||13||Keep in mind what Moses, the servant of the Lord, said to you, The Lord your God is sending you rest and will give you this land.
06O||1||14||Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle will be kept here in the land which Moses gave you on this side of Jordan; but you, the fighting-men, are to go over before your brothers, armed, to give them help;
06O||1||15||Till the Lord has given your brothers rest, as he has given it to you, and they have taken their heritage in the land which the Lord your God is giving them: then you will go back to the land of your heritage which Moses, the servant of the Lord, gave you on the east side of Jordan.
06O||1||16||Then they said to Joshua in answer, Whatever you say to us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.
06O||1||17||As we gave attention to Moses in all things, so we will give attention to you: and may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses.
06O||1||18||Whoever goes against your orders, and does not give attention to all your words, will be put to death: only take heart and be strong.
06O||2||1||Then Joshua, the son of Nun, sent two men from Shittim secretly, with the purpose of searching out the land, and Jericho. So they went and came to the house of a loose woman of the town, named Rahab, where they took their rest for the night.
06O||2||2||And it was said to the king of Jericho, See, some men have come here tonight from the children of Israel with the purpose of searching out the land.
06O||2||3||Then the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, Send out the men who have come to you and are in your house; for they have come with the purpose of searching out all the land.
06O||2||4||And the woman took the two men and put them in a secret place; then she said, Yes, the men came to me, but I had no idea where they came from;
06O||2||5||And when it was the time for shutting the doors at dark, they went out; I have no idea where the men went: but if you go after them quickly, you will overtake them.
06O||2||6||But she had taken them up to the roof, covering them with the stems of flax which she had put out in order there.
06O||2||7||So the men went after them on the road to Jordan as far as the river-crossing: and when they had gone out after them, the door into the town was shut.
06O||2||8||And before the men went to rest, she came up to them on the roof,
06O||2||9||And said to them, It is clear to me that the Lord has given you the land, and that the fear of you has come on us;
06O||2||10||For we have had news of how the Lord made the Red Sea dry before you when you came out of Egypt; and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites, on the other side of Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you gave up to the curse.
06O||2||11||And because of this news, our hearts became like water, and there was no more spirit in any of us because of you; for the Lord your God is God in heaven on high and here on earth.
06O||2||12||So now, will you give me your oath by the Lord, that, because I have been kind to you, you will be kind to my father's house,
06O||2||13||And that you will keep safe my father and mother and my brothers and sisters and all they have, so that death may not come on us?
06O||2||14||And the men said to her, Our life for yours if you keep our business secret; and when the Lord has given us the land, we will keep faith and be kind to you.
06O||2||15||Then she let them down from the window by a cord, for the house where she was living was on the town wall.
06O||2||16||And she said to them, Get away into the hill-country, or the men who have gone after you will overtake you; keep yourselves safe there for three days, till the searchers have come back, and then go on your way.
06O||2||17||And the men said to her, We will only be responsible for this oath which you have made us take,
06O||2||18||If, when we come into the land, you put this cord of bright red thread in the window from which you let us down; and get your father and mother and your brothers and all your family into the house;
06O||2||19||Then if anyone goes out of your house into the street, his blood will be on his head, we will not be responsible; but if any damage comes to anyone in the house, his blood will be on our heads.
06O||2||20||But if you say anything about our business here, then we will be free from the oath you have made us take.
06O||2||21||And she said, Let it be as you say. Then she sent them away, and they went; and she put the bright red cord in the window.
06O||2||22||And they went into the hill-country and were there three days, till the men who had gone after them had come back; and those who went after them were searching for them everywhere without coming across them.
06O||2||23||Then the two men came down from the hill-country and went over and came back to Joshua, the son of Nun; and they gave him a complete account of what had taken place.
06O||2||24||And they said to Joshua, Truly, the Lord has given all the land into our hands; and all the people of the land have become like water because of us.
06O||3||1||Then Joshua got up early in the morning, and, moving on from Shittim, he and all the children of Israel came to Jordan and were there for the night before going over.
06O||3||2||And at the end of three days, the men in authority over the people went through the tents,
06O||3||3||Giving the people their orders, and saying, When you see the ark of the agreement of the Lord your God lifted up by the priests, the Levites, then get up from your places and go after it;
06O||3||4||But let there be a space between you and it of about two thousand cubits: come no nearer to it, so that you may see the way you have to go, for you have not been over this way before.
06O||3||5||And Joshua said to the people, Make yourselves holy, for tomorrow the Lord will do works of wonder among you.
06O||3||6||Then Joshua said to the priests, Take up the ark of the agreement and go over in front of the people. So they took up the ark of the agreement and went in front of the people.
06O||3||7||And the Lord said to Joshua, From now on I will give you glory in the eyes of all Israel, so that they may see that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
06O||3||8||And you are to give orders to the priests who take up the ark of the agreement, and say, When you come to the edge of the waters of Jordan, go no further.
06O||3||9||And Joshua said to the children of Israel, Come to me here: and give ear to the words of the Lord your God.
06O||3||10||And Joshua said, By this you will see that the living God is among you, and that he will certainly send out from before you the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Hivite and the Perizzite and the Girgashite and the Amorite and the Jebusite.
06O||3||11||See, the ark of the agreement of the Lord of all the earth is going over before you into Jordan.
06O||3||12||So take twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, a man from every tribe.
06O||3||13||And when the feet of the priests who take up the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, come to rest in the waters of Jordan, the waters of Jordan will be cut off, all the waters flowing down from higher up, and will come together in a mass.
06O||3||14||So when the people went out from their tents to go over Jordan, the priests who took up the ark of the agreement were in front of the people;
06O||3||15||And when those who took up the ark came to Jordan, and the feet of the priests who took up the ark were touching the edge of the water (for the waters of Jordan are overflowing all through the time of the grain-cutting),
06O||3||16||Then the waters flowing down from higher up were stopped and came together in a mass a long way back at Adam, a town near Zarethan; and the waters flowing down to the sea of the Arabah, the Salt Sea, were cut off: and the people went across opposite Jericho.
06O||3||17||And the priests who took up the ark of the agreement of the Lord kept their places, with their feet on dry land in the middle of Jordan, while all Israel went over on dry land, till all the nation had gone over Jordan.
06O||4||1||Now when all the nation had come to the other side of Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua,
06O||4||2||Take twelve men from the people, a man for every tribe,
06O||4||3||And say to them, Take up from the middle of Jordan, from the place where the feet of the priests were resting, twelve stones, and take them over with you and put them down in the place where you take your rest tonight.
06O||4||4||So Joshua sent for the twelve men, whom he had ready, one man out of every tribe of the children of Israel,
06O||4||5||And he said to them, Go over before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of Jordan, and let every one of you take up a stone on his back, one for every tribe of the children of Israel:
06O||4||6||So that this may be a sign among you; when your children say to you in time to come, What is the reason for these stones?
06O||4||7||Then you will say to them, Because the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the Lord's agreement; when it went over Jordan the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones will be a sign for the children of Israel, keeping it in their memory for ever.
06O||4||8||So the children of Israel did as Joshua gave them orders, and took twelve stones from the middle of Jordan, as the Lord had said to Joshua, one for every tribe of the children of Israel; these they took across with them to their night's resting-place and put them down there.
06O||4||9||And Joshua put up twelve stones in the middle of Jordan, where the feet of the priests who took up the ark of the agreement had been placed: and there they are to this day.
06O||4||10||For the priests who took up the ark kept there in the middle of Jordan till all the orders given to Joshua by Moses from the Lord had been done: then the people went over quickly.
06O||4||11||And when all the people had come to the other side, the ark of the Lord went over, and the priests, before the eyes of the people.
06O||4||12||And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh went over armed before the children of Israel as Moses had said to them:
06O||4||13||About forty thousand armed for war went over before the Lord to the fight, to the lowlands of Jericho.
06O||4||14||That day the Lord made Joshua great in the eyes of all Israel; and all the days of his life they went in fear of him, as they had gone in fear of Moses.
06O||4||15||Then the Lord said to Joshua,
06O||4||16||Give orders to the priests who take up the ark of witness, to come up out of Jordan.
06O||4||17||So Joshua gave orders to the priests, saying, Come up now out of Jordan.
06O||4||18||And when the priests who took up the ark of the Lord's agreement came up out of Jordan and their feet came out on to dry land, the waters of Jordan went back to their place, overflowing its edges as before.
06O||4||19||So on the tenth day of the first month the people came up out of Jordan, and put up their tents in Gilgal, on the east side of Jericho.
06O||4||20||And the twelve stones which they took out of Jordan, Joshua put up in Gilgal.
06O||4||21||And he said to the children of Israel, When your children say to their fathers in time to come, What is the reason for these stones?
06O||4||22||Then give your children the story, and say, Israel came over this river Jordan on dry land.
06O||4||23||For the Lord your God made the waters of Jordan dry before you till you had gone across, as he did to the Red Sea, drying it up before us till we had gone across:
06O||4||24||So that all the peoples of the earth may see that the hand of the Lord is strong; and that they may go in fear of the Lord your God for ever.
06O||5||1||Now when the news came to all the kings of the Amorites on the west side of Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites living by the sea, how the Lord had made the waters of Jordan dry before the children of Israel, till they had gone across, their hearts became like water, and there was no more spirit in them, because of the children of Israel.
06O||5||2||At that time the Lord said to Joshua, Make yourself stone knives and give the children of Israel circumcision a second time.
06O||5||3||So Joshua made stone knives and gave the children of Israel circumcision at Gibeath-ha-araloth.
06O||5||4||And this is the reason why Joshua did so: all the males of the people who came out of Egypt, all the fighting-men, had been overtaken by death in the waste land on the way, after they came out of Egypt.
06O||5||5||All the people who came out had undergone circumcision; but all the people whose birth had taken place in the waste land on their journey from Egypt had not.
06O||5||6||For the children of Israel were wandering in the waste land for forty years, till all the nation, that is, all the fighting-men, who had come out of Egypt, were dead, because they did not give ear to the voice of the Lord: to whom the Lord said, with an oath, that he would not let them see the land which the Lord had given his word to their fathers to give us, a land flowing with milk and honey.
06O||5||7||And their children, who came up in their place, now underwent circumcision by the hands of Joshua, not having had it before: for there had been no circumcision on the journey.
06O||5||8||So when all the nation had undergone circumcision, they kept in their tents till they were well again.
06O||5||9||And the Lord said to Joshua, Today the shame of Egypt has been rolled away from you. So that place was named Gilgal, to this day.
06O||5||10||So the children of Israel put up their tents in Gilgal; and they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month, in the evening, in the lowlands of Jericho.
06O||5||11||And on the day after the Passover, they had for their food the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and dry grain on the same day.
06O||5||12||And there was no more manna from the day after they had for their food the produce of the land; the children of Israel had manna no longer, but that year the produce of the land of Canaan was their food.
06O||5||13||Now when Joshua was near Jericho, lifting up his eyes he saw a man in front of him, with his sword uncovered in his hand: and Joshua went up to him and said, Are you for us or against us?
06O||5||14||And he said, No; but I have come as captain of the armies of the Lord. Then Joshua, falling down with his face to the earth in worship, said, What has my lord to say to his servant?
06O||5||15||And the captain of the Lord's army said to Joshua, Take off your shoes from your feet, for the place where you are is holy. And Joshua did so.
06O||6||1||(Now Jericho was all shut up because of the children of Israel: there was no going out or coming in.)
06O||6||2||And the Lord said to Joshua, See, I have given into your hands Jericho with its king and all its men of war.
06O||6||3||Now let all your fighting-men make a circle round the town, going all round it once. Do this for six days.
06O||6||4||And let seven priests go before the ark with seven loud-sounding horns in their hands: on the seventh day you are to go round the town seven times, the priests blowing their horns.
06O||6||5||And at the sound of a long note on the horns, let all the people give a loud cry; and the wall of the town will come down flat, and all the people are to go straight forward.
06O||6||6||Then Joshua, the son of Nun, sent for the priests and said to them, Take up the ark of the agreement, and let seven priests take seven horns in their hands and go before the ark of the Lord.
06O||6||7||And he said to the people, Go forward, circling the town, and let the armed men go before the ark of the Lord.
06O||6||8||So after Joshua had said this to the people, the seven priests with their seven horns went forward before the Lord, blowing on their horns: and the ark of the Lord's agreement went after them.
06O||6||9||And the armed men went before the priests who were blowing the horns, and the mass of the people went after the ark, blowing their horns.
06O||6||10||And to the people Joshua gave an order, saying, You will give no cry, and make no sound, and let no word go out of your mouth till the day when I say, Give a loud cry; then give a loud cry.
06O||6||11||So he made the ark of the Lord go all round the town once: then they went back to the tents for the night.
06O||6||12||And early in the morning Joshua got up, and the priests took up the ark of the Lord.
06O||6||13||And the seven priests with their seven horns went on before the ark of the Lord, blowing their horns: the armed men went before them, and the mass of the people went after the ark of the Lord, blowing their horns.
06O||6||14||The second day they went all round the town once, and then went back to their tents: and so they did for six days.
06O||6||15||Then on the seventh day they got up early, at the dawn of the day, and went round the town in the same way, but that day they went round it seven times.
06O||6||16||And the seventh time, at the sound of the priests' horns, Joshua said to the people, Now give a loud cry; for the Lord has given you the town.
06O||6||17||And the town will be put to the curse, and everything in it will be given to the Lord: only Rahab, the loose woman, and all who are in the house with her, will be kept safe, because she kept secret the men we sent.
06O||6||18||And as for you, keep yourselves from the cursed thing, for fear that you may get a desire for it and take some of it for yourselves, and so be the cause of a curse and great trouble on the tents of Israel.
06O||6||19||But all the silver and gold and the vessels of brass and iron are holy to the Lord: they are to come into the store-house of the Lord.
06O||6||20||So the people gave a loud cry, and the horns were sounded; and on hearing the horns the people gave a loud cry, and the wall came down flat, so that the people went up into the town, every man going straight before him, and they took the town.
06O||6||21||And they put everything in the town to the curse; men and women, young and old, ox and sheep and ass, they put to death without mercy.
06O||6||22||Then Joshua said to the two men who had been sent to make a search through the land, Go into the house of the loose woman, and get her out, and all who are with her, as you gave her your oath.
06O||6||23||So the searchers went in and got out Rahab and her father and mother and her brothers and all she had, and they got out all her family; and they took them outside the tents of Israel.
06O||6||24||Then, after burning up the town and everything in it, they put the silver and gold and the vessels of brass and iron into the store-house of the Lord's house.
06O||6||25||But Joshua kept Rahab, the loose woman, and her father's family and all she had, from death, and so she got a living-place among the children of Israel to this day; because she kept safe the men whom Joshua had sent to make a search through the land.
06O||6||26||Then Joshua gave the people orders with an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed before the Lord who puts his hand to the building up of this town: with the loss of his first son will he put the first stone of it in place, and with the loss of his youngest son he will put up its doors.
06O||6||27||So the Lord was with Joshua; and news of him went through all the land.
06O||7||1||But the children of Israel did wrong about the cursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the family of Judah, took of the cursed thing, moving the Lord to wrath against the children of Israel.
06O||7||2||Now Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is by the side of Beth-aven, on the east side of Beth-el, and said to them, Go up and make a search through the land. And the men went up and saw how Ai was placed.
06O||7||3||Then they came back to Joshua and said to him, Do not send all the people up, but let about two or three thousand men go up and make an attack on Ai; there is no need for all the people to be tired with the journey there, for it is only a small town.
06O||7||4||So about three thousand of the people went up, and were sent in flight by the men of Ai.
06O||7||5||The men of Ai put to death about thirty-six of them, driving them from before the town as far as the stoneworks, and overcoming them on the way down: and the hearts of the people became like water.
06O||7||6||Then Joshua, in great grief, went down on the earth before the ark of the Lord till the evening, and all the chiefs of Israel with him, and they put dust on their heads.
06O||7||7||And Joshua said, O Lord God, why have you taken us over Jordan only to give us up into the hands of the Amorites for our destruction? If only it had been enough for us to keep on the other side of Jordan!
06O||7||8||O Lord, what am I to say now that Israel have given way before their attackers?
06O||7||9||For when the news comes to the Canaanites and all the people of the land, they will come up, shutting us in and cutting off our name from the earth: and what will you do for the honour of your great name?
06O||7||10||Then the Lord said to Joshua, Get up; what are you doing with your face to the earth?
06O||7||11||Israel has done wrong, sinning against the agreement which I made with them: they have even taken of the cursed thing; acting falsely like thieves they have put it among their goods.
06O||7||12||For this reason the children of Israel have given way, turning their backs in flight before their attackers, because they are cursed: I will no longer be with you, if you do not put the cursed thing away from among you.
06O||7||13||Up! make the people holy; say to them, Make yourselves holy before tomorrow, for the Lord, the God of Israel, has said, There is a cursed thing among you, O Israel, and you will give way before your attackers in the fight till the cursed thing has been taken away from among you.
06O||7||14||So in the morning you are to come near, tribe by tribe; and the tribe marked out by the Lord is to come near, family by family; and the family marked out by the Lord is to come near, house by house; and the house marked out by the Lord is to come near, man by man.
06O||7||15||Then the man who is taken with the cursed thing is to be burned, with everything which is his; because he has gone against the agreement of the Lord and has done an act of shame in Israel.
06O||7||16||So Joshua got up early in the morning, and made Israel come before him by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken;
06O||7||17||Then he made Judah come forward, and the family of the Zerahites was taken; and he made the family of the Zerahites come forward man by man; and Zabdi was taken;
06O||7||18||Then the house of Zabdi came forward man by man, and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken.
06O||7||19||And Joshua said to Achan, My son, give glory and praise to the Lord, the God of Israel; give me word now of what you have done, and keep nothing back from me.
06O||7||20||And Achan, answering, said to Joshua, Truly I have done wrong against the Lord, the God of Israel, and this is what I have done:
06O||7||21||When I saw among their goods a fair robe of Babylon and two hundred shekels of silver, and a mass of gold, fifty shekels in weight, I was overcome by desire and took them; and they are put away in the earth in my tent, and the silver is under it.
06O||7||22||So Joshua sent men quickly, and looking in his tent, they saw where the robe had been put away secretly with the silver under it.
06O||7||23||And they took them from the tent and came back with them to Joshua and the children of Israel, and put them before the Lord.
06O||7||24||Then Joshua and all Israel took Achan, the son of Zerah, and the silver and the robe and the mass of gold, and his sons and his daughters and his oxen and his asses and his sheep and his tent and everything he had; and they took them up into the valley of Achor.
06O||7||25||And Joshua said, Why have you been a cause of trouble to us? Today the Lord will send trouble on you. And all Israel took part in stoning him; they had him stoned to death and then burned with fire.
06O||7||26||And over him they put a great mass of stones, which is there to this day; then the heat of the Lord's wrath was turned away. So that place was named, The Valley of Achor, to this day.
06O||8||1||Then the Lord said to Joshua, Have no fear and do not be troubled: take with you all the fighting-men and go up against Ai: for I have given into your hands the king of Ai and his people and his town and his land:
06O||8||2||And you are to do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king: but their goods and their cattle you may take for yourselves: let a secret force be stationed to make a surprise attack on the town from the back.
06O||8||3||So Joshua and the fighting-men got ready to go up against Ai; and Joshua took thirty thousand men of war, and sent them out by night.
06O||8||4||And he gave them their orders, saying, Go and take up your position secretly at the back of the town: do not go very far away, and let all of you be ready:
06O||8||5||And I and all the people with me will come near the town, and when they come out against us as they did before, we will go in flight from them;
06O||8||6||And they will come out after us, till we have got them away from the town; for they will say, They have gone in flight from us as before; so we will go in flight before them;
06O||8||7||Then you will get up from your secret position and take the town, for the Lord your God will give it up into your hands.
06O||8||8||And when you have taken the town, put fire to it, as the Lord has said: see, I have given you your orders.
06O||8||9||So Joshua sent them out: and they took up a secret position between Beth-el and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but Joshua kept with the people that night.
06O||8||10||And early in the morning Joshua got up, and put the people in order, and he and the chiefs of Israel went up before the people to Ai.
06O||8||11||And all the fighting-men who were with him went up and came near the town, and took up a position on the north side of Ai facing the town, with a valley between him and the town.
06O||8||12||And taking about five thousand men, he put them in position for a surprise attack on the west side of Ai, between Beth-el and Ai.
06O||8||13||So all the people were in their places, the army on the north side of the town and the secret force on the west; and that night Joshua went down into the valley.
06O||8||14||Now when the king of Ai saw it, he got up quickly and went out to war against Israel, he and all his people, to the slope going down to the valley; but he had no idea that a secret force was waiting at the back of the town.
06O||8||15||Then Joshua and all Israel, acting as if they were overcome before them, went in flight by way of the waste land.
06O||8||16||And all the people in Ai came together to go after them; and they went after Joshua, moving away from the town.
06O||8||17||There was not a man in Ai and Beth-el who did not go out after Israel; and the town was open and unwatched while they went after Israel.
06O||8||18||And the Lord said to Joshua, Let your spear be stretched out against Ai; for I will give it into your hands. So Joshua took up his spear, stretching it out in the direction of the town.
06O||8||19||Then the secret force came quickly from their place, and running forward when they saw his hand stretched out, went into the town and took it, and put fire to it straight away.
06O||8||20||Then the men of Ai, looking back, saw the smoke of the town going up to heaven, and were unable to go this way or that: and the people who had gone in flight to the waste land were turned back on those who were coming after them.
06O||8||21||And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the town had been taken by the surprise attack, and that the smoke of the town had gone up, turning round they overcame the men of Ai.
06O||8||22||Then the other force came out of the town against them, so that they were being attacked on this side and on that: and Israel overcame them and let not one of them get away with his life.
06O||8||23||But the king of Ai they made prisoner, and took him to Joshua.
06O||8||24||Then, after the destruction of all the people of Ai in the field and in the waste land where they went after them, and when all the people had been put to death without mercy, all Israel went back to Ai, and put to death all who were in it without mercy.
06O||8||25||On that day twelve thousand were put to death, men and women, all the people of Ai.
06O||8||26||For Joshua did not take back his hand with the outstretched spear till the destruction of the people of Ai was complete.
06O||8||27||But the cattle and the goods from that town, Israel took for themselves, as the Lord had given orders to Joshua.
06O||8||28||So Joshua gave Ai to the flames, and made it a waste mass of stones for ever, as it is to this day.
06O||8||29||And he put the king of Ai to death, hanging him on a tree till evening: and when the sun went down, Joshua gave them orders to take his body down from the tree, and put it in the public place of the town, covering it with a great mass of stones, which is there to this day.
06O||8||30||Then Joshua put up an altar to the Lord, the God of Israel, in Mount Ebal,
06O||8||31||In the way ordered by Moses, the servant of the Lord, as it is recorded in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of uncut stones, untouched by any iron instrument: and on it they made burned offerings and peace-offerings to the Lord.
06O||8||32||And he made there on the stones a copy of the law of Moses, writing it before the eyes of the children of Israel.
06O||8||33||And all Israel, those who were Israelites by birth, as well as the men from other lands living with them, and their responsible men and their overseers and judges, took their places round the ark, in front of the priests, the Levites, whose work it was to take up the ark of the Lord's agreement; half of them were stationed in front of Mount Gerizim and half in front of Mount Ebal, in agreement with the orders for the blessing of the children of Israel which Moses, the servant of the Lord, had given.
06O||8||34||And after, he gave them all the words of the law, the blessing and the curse, as it is all recorded in the book of the law;
06O||8||35||Reading to all the meeting of Israel, with the women and the children and the men from other lands who were living among them, every word of the orders which Moses had given.
06O||9||1||Now on hearing the news of these things, all the kings on the west side of Jordan, in the hill-country and the lowlands and by the Great Sea in front of Lebanon, the Hittites and the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites,
06O||9||2||Came together with one purpose, to make war against Joshua and Israel.
06O||9||3||And the men of Gibeon, hearing what Joshua had done to Jericho and Ai,
06O||9||4||Acting with deceit, got food together as if for a long journey; and took old food-bags for their asses, and old and cracked wine-skins kept together with cord;
06O||9||5||And put old stitched-up shoes on their feet, and old clothing on their backs; and all the food they had with them was dry and broken up.
06O||9||6||And they came to Joshua to the tent-circle at Gilgal, and said to him and to the men of Israel, We have come from a far country: so now make an agreement with us.
06O||9||7||And the men of Israel said to the Hivites, It may be that you are living among us; how then may we make an agreement with you?
06O||9||8||And they said to Joshua, We are your servants. Then Joshua said to them, Who are you and where do you come from?
06O||9||9||And they said to him, Your servants have come from a very far country, because of the name of the Lord your God: for the story of his great name, and of all he did in Egypt has come to our ears,
06O||9||10||And what he did to the two kings of the Amorites east of Jordan, to Sihon, king of Heshbon, and to Og, king of Bashan, at Ashtaroth.
06O||9||11||So the responsible men and all the people of our country said to us, Take food with you for the journey and go to them, and say to them, We are your servants: so now make an agreement with us.
06O||9||12||This bread which we have with us for our food, we took warm and new from our houses when starting on our journey to you; but now see, it has become dry and broken up.
06O||9||13||And these wine-skins were new when we put the wine in them, and now they are cracked as you see; and our clothing and our shoes have become old because of our very long journey here.
06O||9||14||And the men took some of their food, without requesting directions from the Lord.
06O||9||15||So Joshua made peace with them, and made an agreement with them that they were not to be put to death: and the chiefs of the people took an oath to them.
06O||9||16||Now three days after, when they had made this agreement with them, they had word that these men were their neighbours, living near them.
06O||9||17||And the children of Israel went forward on their journey, and on the third day came to their towns. Now their towns were Gibeon and Chephirah and Beeroth and Kiriath-jearim.
06O||9||18||And the children of Israel did not put them to death, because the chiefs of the people had taken an oath to them by the Lord, the God of Israel. And all the people made an outcry against the chiefs.
06O||9||19||But all the chiefs said to the people, We have taken an oath to them by the Lord, the God of Israel, and so we may not put our hands on them.
06O||9||20||This is what we will do to them: we will not put them to death, for fear that wrath may come on us because of our oath to them.
06O||9||21||Keep them living, and let them be servants, cutting wood and getting water for all the people. And all the people did as the chiefs had said to them.
06O||9||22||Then Joshua sent for them, and said to them, Why have you been false to us, saying, We are very far from you, when you are living among us?
06O||9||23||Now because of this you are cursed, and you will for ever be our servants, cutting wood and getting water for the house of my God.
06O||9||24||And, answering Joshua, they said, Because it came to the ears of your servants that the Lord your God had given orders to his servant Moses to give you all this land, and to send destruction on all the people living in it, because of you; so, fearing greatly for our lives because of you, we have done this.
06O||9||25||And now we are in your hands: do to us whatever seems good and right to you.
06O||9||26||So he kept them safe from the children of Israel, and did not let them be put to death.
06O||9||27||And that day Joshua made them servants, cutting wood and getting water for the people and for the altar of the Lord, in the place marked out by him, to this day.
06O||10||1||Now when it came to the ears of Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, that Joshua had taken Ai, and had given it up to the curse (for as he had done to Jericho and its king, so he had done to Ai and its king); and that the people of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were living among them;
06O||10||2||He was in great fear, because Gibeon was a great town, like one of the king's towns, greater than Ai, and all the men in it were men of war.
06O||10||3||So Adoni-zedek, king of Jerusalem, sent to Hoham, king of Hebron, and to Piram, king of Jarmuth, and to Japhia, king of Lachish, and to Debir, king of Eglon, saying,
06O||10||4||Come up to me and give me help, and let us make an attack on Gibeon: for they have made peace with Joshua and the children of Israel.
06O||10||5||So the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon, were banded together, and went up with all their armies and took up their position before Gibeon and made war against it.
06O||10||6||And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua to the tent-circle at Gilgal, saying, Be not slow to send help to your servants; come up quickly to our support and keep us safe: for all the kings of the Amorites from the hill-country have come together against us.
06O||10||7||So Joshua went up from Gilgal with all his army and all his men of war.
06O||10||8||And the Lord said to Joshua, Have no fear of them, for I have given them into your hands; they will all give way before you.
06O||10||9||So Joshua, having come up from Gilgal all night, made a sudden attack on them.
06O||10||10||And the Lord made them full of fear before Israel, and they put great numbers of them to death at Gibeon, and went after them by the way going up to Beth-horon, driving them back to Azekah and Makkedah
06O||10||11||And in their flight before Israel, on the way down from Beth-horon, the Lord sent down great stones from heaven on them all the way to Azekah, causing their death: those whose death was caused by the stones were more than those whom the children of Israel put to death with the sword.
06O||10||12||It was on the day when the Lord gave up the Amorites into the hands of the children of Israel that Joshua said to the Lord, before the eyes of Israel, Sun, be at rest over Gibeon; and you, O moon, in the valley of Aijalon.
06O||10||13||And the sun was at rest and the moon kept its place till the nation had given punishment to their attackers. (Is it not recorded in the book of Jashar?) So the sun kept its place in the middle of the heavens, and was waiting, and did not go down, for the space of a day.
06O||10||14||And there was no day like that, before it or after it, when the Lord gave ear to the voice of a man; for the Lord was fighting for Israel.
06O||10||15||And Joshua, with all Israel, went back to the tent-circle at Gilgal.
06O||10||16||But these five kings went in flight secretly to a hole in the rock at Makkedah.
06O||10||17||And word was given to Joshua that the five kings had been taken in a hole in the rock at Makkedah.
06O||10||18||And Joshua said, Let great stones be rolled against the mouth of the hole, and let men keep watch by it:
06O||10||19||But do you, without waiting, go after their army, attacking them from the back; do not let them get into their towns, for the Lord your God has given them into your hands.
06O||10||20||Now when Joshua and the children of Israel had come to the end of their war of complete destruction, and had put to death all but a small band who had got safely into the walled towns,
06O||10||21||All the people went back to Joshua to the tent-circle at Makkedah in peace: and no one said a word against the children of Israel.
06O||10||22||Then Joshua said, Take away the stones from the mouth of the hole in the rock, and make those five kings come out to me.
06O||10||23||And they did so, and made those five kings come out of the hole to him, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
06O||10||24||And when they had made those kings come out to Joshua, Joshua sent for all the men of Israel, and said to the chiefs of the men of war who had gone with him, Come near and put your feet on the necks of these kings. So they came near and put their feet on their necks.
06O||10||25||And Joshua said to them, Have no fear and do not be troubled; be strong and take heart: for so will the Lord do to all against whom you make war.
06O||10||26||Then Joshua had them put to death, hanging them on five trees, where they were till evening.
06O||10||27||And when the sun went down, they were taken down from the trees, by Joshua's orders, and put into the hole where they had gone to be safe; and great stones were placed at the mouth of the hole, where they are to this day.
06O||10||28||That day Joshua took Makkedah, and put it and its king to the sword; every soul in it he gave up to the curse without mercy: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he had done to the king of Jericho.
06O||10||29||Then Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Makkedah and came to Libnah, and made an attack on it;
06O||10||30||And again the Lord gave it and its king into the hands of Israel; and he put it and every person in it to the sword, till their destruction was complete; and he did to its king as he had done to the king of Jericho.
06O||10||31||Then Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Libnah to Lachish, and took up their position against it and made an attack on it,
06O||10||32||And the Lord gave Lachish into the hands of Israel, and on the second day he took it, putting it and every person in it to the sword without mercy, as he had done to Libnah.
06O||10||33||Then Horam, king of Gezer, came up to the help of Lachish; and Joshua overcame him and his people, putting all of them to death.
06O||10||34||And Joshua and all Israel with him went on from Lachish to Eglon: and they took up their position against it and made an attack on it;
06O||10||35||And that day they took it, putting it and every person in it to the sword, as he had done to Lachish.
06O||10||36||And Joshua and all Israel with him went up from Eglon to Hebron, and made an attack on it;
06O||10||37||And took it, overcoming it and putting it and its king and its towns and every person in it to the sword: as he had done to Eglon, he put them all to death, and gave it up to the curse with every person in it.
06O||10||38||And Joshua and all Israel with him went on to make an attack on Debir;
06O||10||39||And he took it, with its king and all its towns: and he put them to the sword, giving every person in it to the curse; all were put to death: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir and its king.
06O||10||40||So Joshua overcame all the land, the hill-country and the South and the lowland and the mountain slopes, and all their kings; all were put to death: and every living thing he gave up to the curse, as the Lord, the God of Israel, had given him orders.
06O||10||41||Joshua overcame them from Kadesh-barnea to Gaza, and all the land of Goshen as far as Gibeon.
06O||10||42||And all these kings and their land Joshua took at the same time, because the Lord, the God of Israel, was fighting for Israel.
06O||10||43||Then Joshua and all Israel with him went back to their tents at Gilgal.
06O||11||1||Now Jabin, king of Hazor, hearing of these things, sent to Jobab, king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,
06O||11||2||And to the kings on the north in the hill-country, and in the Arabah south of Chinneroth, and in the lowland, and in the highlands of Dor on the west,
06O||11||3||And to the Canaanites on the east and on the west, and to the Amorites and the Hittites and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites in the hill-country, and the Hivites under Hermon in the land of Mizpah.
06O||11||4||And they went out, they and all their armies with them, a great people, in number like the sand on the seaside, with horses and war-carriages in great number.
06O||11||5||And all these kings came together, and put their forces in position at the waters of Merom, to make war on Israel.
06O||11||6||And the Lord said to Joshua, Have no fear of them: for tomorrow at this time I will give them all up dead before Israel; you are to have the leg-muscles of their horses cut and their war-carriages burned with fire.
06O||11||7||So Joshua and all the men of war with him came against them suddenly at the waters of Merom, and made an attack on them.
06O||11||8||And the Lord gave them up into the hands of Israel, and they overcame them driving them back to great Zidon and to Misrephoth-maim and into the valley of Mizpeh to the east; and they put them all to death, no man got away safely.
06O||11||9||And Joshua did to them as the Lord had said to him; he had the leg-muscles of their horses cut and their war-carriages burned with fire.
06O||11||10||At that time, Joshua went on to take Hazor and put its king to the sword: for in earlier times Hazor was the chief of all those kingdoms.
06O||11||11||And they put every person in it to death without mercy, giving every living thing up to the curse, and burning Hazor.
06O||11||12||And all the towns of these kings, and all the kings, Joshua took, and put them to the sword: he gave them up to the curse, as Moses, the servant of the Lord, had said.
06O||11||13||As for the towns made on hills of earth, not one was burned by Israel but Hazor, which was burned by Joshua.
06O||11||14||And all the goods taken from these towns, and their cattle, the children of Israel kept for themselves; but every man they put to death without mercy, till their destruction was complete, and there was no one living.
06O||11||15||As the Lord had given orders to Moses his servant, so Moses gave orders to Joshua, and so Joshua did; every order which the Lord had given to Moses was done.
06O||11||16||So Joshua took all that land, the hill-country and all the South, and all the land of Goshen, and the lowland and the Arabah, the hill-country of Israel and its lowland;
06O||11||17||From Mount Halak, which goes up to Seir, as far as Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon under Mount Hermon: and all their kings he overcame and put to death.
06O||11||18||For a long time Joshua made war on all those kings.
06O||11||19||Not one town made peace with the children of Israel, but only the Hivites of Gibeon: they took them all in war.
06O||11||20||For the Lord made them strong in heart to go to war against Israel, so that he might give them up to the curse without mercy, and that destruction might come on them, as the Lord had given orders to Moses.
06O||11||21||And Joshua came at that time and put an end to the Anakim in the hill-country, in Hebron, in Debir, in Anab, and in all the hill-country of Judah and Israel: Joshua gave them and their towns to the curse.
06O||11||22||Not one of the Anakim was to be seen in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, some were still living.
06O||11||23||So Joshua took all the land, as the Lord had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it to the children of Israel as their heritage, making division of it among them by their tribes. And the land had rest from war.
06O||12||1||Now these are the kings of the land whom the children of Israel overcame, taking as their heritage their land on the east side of Jordan, from the valley of the Arnon to Mount Hermon, and all the Arabah to the east:
06O||12||2||Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was living in Heshbon, ruling from Aroer, which is on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and the town in the middle of the valley, and half Gilead, as far as the river Jabbok, the limits of the children of Ammon;
06O||12||3||And the Arabah to the sea of Chinneroth, to the east, and to the sea of the Arabah, that is the Salt Sea, to the east, the way to Beth-jeshimoth; and on the south, under the slopes of Pisgah:
06O||12||4||And the land of Og, king of Bashan, of the rest of the Rephaim, who was living at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,
06O||12||5||Ruling in the mountain of Hermon, and in Salecah, and in all Bashan, as far as the limits of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and half Gilead, to the land of Sihon, king of Heshbon.
06O||12||6||Moses, the servant of the Lord, and the children of Israel overcame them; and Moses, the servant of the Lord, gave their land for a heritage to the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
06O||12||7||And these are the kings of the land whom Joshua and the children of Israel overcame on the west side of Jordan, from Baal-gad in the valley of Lebanon to Mount Halak, which goes up to Seir; and Joshua gave the land to the tribes of Israel for a heritage, in keeping with their divisions;
06O||12||8||In the hill-country, and in the lowland, and in the Arabah, and on the mountain slopes, and in the waste land, and in the South; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
06O||12||9||The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which is near Beth-el, one;
06O||12||10||The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;
06O||12||11||The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;
06O||12||12||The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;
06O||12||13||The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;
06O||12||14||The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;
06O||12||15||The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;
06O||12||16||The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Beth-el, one;
06O||12||17||The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;
06O||12||18||The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lassharon, one;
06O||12||19||The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;
06O||12||20||The king of Shimron-meron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;
06O||12||21||The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;
06O||12||22||The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam in Carmel, one;
06O||12||23||The king of Dor on the hill of Dor, one; the king of Goiim in Gilgal, one;
06O||12||24||The king of Tirzah, one; all the kings together were thirty-one.
06O||13||1||Now Joshua was old and full of years; and the Lord said to him, You are old and full of years, and there is still very much land to be taken.
06O||13||2||This is the land which is still to be taken: all the country of the Philistines, and all the Geshurites;
06O||13||3||From the Shihor, which is before Egypt, to the edge of Ekron to the north, which is taken to be Canaanite property: the five chiefs of the Philistines; the Gazites, and the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites, as well as the Avvim;
06O||13||4||On the south: all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah which is the property of the Zidonians, to Aphek, as far as the limit of the Amorites:
06O||13||5||And the land of the Gebalites, and all Lebanon, looking east, from Baal-gad under Mount Hermon as far as Hamath:
06O||13||6||All the people of the hill-country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, all the Zidonians; them will I send out from before the children of Israel: only make division of it to Israel for a heritage, as I have given you orders to do.
06O||13||7||So now make division of this land for a heritage to the nine tribes, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
06O||13||8||With him the Reubenites and the Gadites have been given their heritage, which Moses gave them, on the east side of Jordan, as Moses, the servant of the Lord, gave them;
06O||13||9||From Aroer, on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and the town in the middle of the valley, and all the table-land from Medeba to Dibon;
06O||13||10||And all the towns of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon, to the limits of the children of Ammon;
06O||13||11||And Gilead, and the land of the Geshurites and the Maacathites, and all Mount Hermon, and all Bashan to Salecah;
06O||13||12||All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, who was ruling in Ashtaroth and in Edrei (he was one of the last of the Rephaim); these did Moses overcome, driving them out of their country.
06O||13||13||However, the people of Israel did not send out the Geshurites, or the Maacathites: but Geshur and Maacath are living among Israel to this day.
06O||13||14||Only to the tribe of Levi he gave no heritage; the offerings of the Lord, the God of Israel, made by fire are his heritage, as he said to him.
06O||13||15||And Moses gave their heritage to the tribe of Reuben by their families.
06O||13||16||Their limit was from Aroer, on the edge of the valley of the Arnon, and the town in the middle of the valley, and all the table-land by Medeba;
06O||13||17||Heshbon and all her towns in the table-land; Dibon, and Bamoth-baal, and Beth-baal-meon;
06O||13||18||And Jahaz, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath;
06O||13||19||And Kiriathaim, and Sibmah, and Zereth-shahar in the mountain of the valley;
06O||13||20||And Beth-peor, and the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-jeshimoth;
06O||13||21||And all the towns of the table-land, and all the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites, who was ruling in Heshbon, whom Moses overcame, together with the chiefs of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, the chiefs of Sihon, who were living in the land.
06O||13||22||And Balaam, the son of Beor, the prophet, the children of Israel put to death with the sword.
06O||13||23||And the limit of the children of Reuben was the edge of Jordan. This was the heritage of the children of Reuben by their families, with its towns and its unwalled places.
06O||13||24||And Moses gave their heritage to the tribe of Gad by their families.
06O||13||25||And their limit was Jazer, and all the towns of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon, to Aroer before Rabbah;
06O||13||26||And from Heshbon to Ramath-mizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim to the edge of Debir;
06O||13||27||And in the valley, Beth-haram, and Beth-nimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon, king of Heshbon, having Jordan for its limit, to the end of the sea of Chinnereth on the east side of Jordan.
06O||13||28||This is the heritage of the children of Gad by their families, with its towns and its unwalled places
06O||13||29||And Moses gave their heritage to the half-tribe of Manasseh by their families.
06O||13||30||And their limit was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og, king of Bashan, and all Havvoth-Jair, in Bashan, sixty towns;
06O||13||31||And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, towns of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, were for the children of Machir, the son of Manasseh, for half of the children of Machir by their families.
06O||13||32||These are the heritages of which Moses made distribution in the lowlands of Moab, on the other side of Jordan in Jericho, to the east.
06O||13||33||But to the tribe of Levi Moses gave no heritage: the Lord, the God of Israel, is their heritage, as he said to them.
06O||14||1||And these are the heritages which the children of Israel took in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar, the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, gave out to them;
06O||14||2||Their heritage by the Lord's decision, as he gave orders by Moses, for the nine tribes and the half-tribe.
06O||14||3||For Moses had given their heritage to the two tribes and the half-tribe on the other side of Jordan, but to the Levites he gave no heritage among them.
06O||14||4||Because the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim; and they gave the Levites no part in the land, only towns for their living-places, with the grass-lands for their cattle and for their property.
06O||14||5||As the Lord had given orders to Moses, so the people of Israel did, and they made division of the land.
06O||14||6||Then the children of Judah went to Joshua in Gilgal; and Caleb, the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, said to him, You have knowledge of what the Lord said to Moses, the man of God, about me and about you in Kadesh-barnea.
06O||14||7||I was forty years old when Moses, the servant of the Lord, sent me from Kadesh-barnea to make a search through the land; and the account which I gave him was in keeping with his desire.
06O||14||8||My brothers, however, who went up with me, made the heart of the people like water: but I was true to the Lord with all my heart.
06O||14||9||And on that day Moses took an oath, saying, Truly the land where your feet have been placed will become a heritage for you and your children for ever, because you have been true to the Lord your God with all your heart.
06O||14||10||And now, as you see, the Lord has kept me safe these forty-five years, from the time when the Lord said this to Moses, while Israel was wandering in the waste land: and now I am eighty-five years old.
06O||14||11||And still, I am as strong today as I was when Moses sent me out: as my strength was then, so is it now, for war and for all the business of life.
06O||14||12||So now, give me this hill-country named by the Lord at that time; for you had an account of it then, how the Anakim were there, and great walled towns: it may be that the Lord will be with me, and I will be able to take their land, as the Lord said.
06O||14||13||And Joshua gave him his blessing; and he gave Hebron to Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, for his heritage.
06O||14||14||So Hebron became the heritage of Caleb, the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, to this day, because with all his heart he was true to the Lord, the God of Israel.
06O||14||15||In earlier times the name of Hebron had been Kiriath-arba, named after Arba, the greatest of the Anakim. And the land had rest from war.
06O||15||1||Now the part of the land marked out for the children of Judah by families, went up to the edge of Edom, as far as the waste land of Zin to the south, to the farthest point of it on the south.
06O||15||2||Their south limit was from the farthest part of the Salt Sea, from the inlet looking to the south:
06O||15||3||From there it goes south of the slope up to Akrabbim, and on to Zin, then south past Kadesh-barnea, and on by Hezron and up to Addar, turning in the direction of Karka:
06O||15||4||Then on to Azmon, ending at the stream of Egypt: and the end of the limit is at the sea; this will be your limit on the south.
06O||15||5||And the east limit is the Salt Sea as far as the end of Jordan. And the limit of the north part of the land is from the inlet of the sea at the end of Jordan:
06O||15||6||Then the line goes up to Beth-hoglah, past the north of Beth-arabah, and up to the stone of Bohan, the son of Reuben;
06O||15||7||Then the line goes up to Debir from the valley of Achor, and so to the north, in the direction of Gilgal, which is opposite the slope up to Adummim, on the south side of the river: and the line goes on to the waters of En-shemesh, ending at En-rogel:
06O||15||8||Then the line goes up by the valley of the son of Hinnom to the south side of the Jebusite (which is Jerusalem): then up to the top of the mountain in front of the valley of Hinnom to the west, which is at the farthest point of the valley of Rephaim on the north:
06O||15||9||And the limit is marked out from the top of the mountain to the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah, and out to the towns of Mount Ephron, as far as Baalah (which is Kiriath-jearim):
06O||15||10||Then turning west, the line goes from Baalah to Mount Seir, and on to the side of Mount Jearim (which is Chesalon) on the north, then down to Beth-shemesh, and on past Timnah:
06O||15||11||And out to the side of Ekron to the north: then it is marked out to Shikkeron and on to Mount Baalah, ending at Jabneel; the end of the line is at the sea.
06O||15||12||And the limit on the west is the edge of the Great Sea. This is the line going round the land marked out for the children of Judah, by their families.
06O||15||13||And to Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, he gave a part among the children of Judah, as the Lord had given orders to Joshua, that is, Kiriath-arba, named after Arba, the father of Anak which is Hebron.
06O||15||14||And the three sons of Anak, Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai, the children of Anak, were forced out from there by Caleb.
06O||15||15||From there he went up against the people of Debir: (now the name of Debir before that was Kiriath-sepher.)
06O||15||16||And Caleb said, I will give Achsah, my daughter, as wife to the man who overcomes Kiriath-sepher and takes it.
06O||15||17||And Othniel, the son of Kenaz, Caleb's brother, took it: so he gave him his daughter Achsah for his wife.
06O||15||18||Now when she came to him, he put into her mind the idea of requesting a field from her father: and she got down from her ass; and Caleb said to her, What is it?
06O||15||19||And she said, Give me a blessing; because you have put me in dry south-land, now give me springs of water. So he gave her the higher spring and the lower spring.
06O||15||20||This is the heritage of the tribe of Judah, by their families.
06O||15||21||The farthest towns of the tribe of Judah in the direction of the limits of Edom to the south, were Kabzeel, and Eder, and Jagur;
06O||15||22||And Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah;
06O||15||23||And Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan;
06O||15||24||Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth;
06O||15||25||And Hazor-hadattah, and Kerioth-hezron (which is Hazor);
06O||15||26||Amam, and Shema, and Moladah;
06O||15||27||And Hazar-gaddah, and Heshmon, and Beth-pelet;
06O||15||28||And Hazar-shual, and Beer-sheba, and Biziothiah;
06O||15||29||Baalah, and Iim, and Ezem;
06O||15||30||And Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah;
06O||15||31||And Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah;
06O||15||32||And Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon; all the towns are twenty-nine, with their unwalled places.
06O||15||33||In the lowland, Eshtaol, and Zorah, and Ashnah;
06O||15||34||And Zanoah, and En-gannim, Tappuah, and Enam;
06O||15||35||Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah;
06O||15||36||And Shaaraim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, and Gederothaim; fourteen towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||37||Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdal-gad;
06O||15||38||And Dilan, and Mizpeh, and Joktheel;
06O||15||39||Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon;
06O||15||40||And Cabbon, and Lahmas, and Chithlish;
06O||15||41||And Gederoth, Beth-dagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; sixteen towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||42||Libnah, and Ether, and Ashan;
06O||15||43||And Iphtah, and Ashnah, and Nezib;
06O||15||44||And Keilah, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||45||Ekron, with her daughter-towns and her unwalled places;
06O||15||46||From Ekron to the sea, all the towns by the side of Ashdod, with their unwalled places.
06O||15||47||Ashdod, with her daughter-towns and her unwalled places; Gaza, with her daughter-towns and her unwalled places, to the stream of Egypt, with the Great Sea as a limit.
06O||15||48||And in the hill-country, Shamir, and Jattir, and Socoh;
06O||15||49||And Dannah, and Kiriath-sannah (which is Debir);
06O||15||50||And Anab, and Eshtemoh, and Anim;
06O||15||51||And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||52||Arab, and Dumah, and Eshan;
06O||15||53||And Janim, and Beth-tappuah, and Aphekah;
06O||15||54||And Humtah, and Kiriath-arba (which is Hebron), and Zior; nine towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||55||Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Jutah;
06O||15||56||And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah;
06O||15||57||Kain, Gibeah, and Timnah; ten towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||58||Halhul, Beth-zur, and Gedor;
06O||15||59||And Maarath, and Beth-anoth, and Eltekon; six towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||60||Kiriath-baal (which is Kiriath-jearim), and Rabbah; two towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||61||In the waste land, Beth-arabah, Middin, and Secacah;
06O||15||62||And Nibshan, and the Town of Salt, and En-gedi; six towns with their unwalled places.
06O||15||63||And as for the Jebusites living in Jerusalem, the children of Judah were unable to make them go out; but the Jebusites are living with the children of Judah at Jerusalem, to this day.
06O||16||1||And the limit of the land marked out for the children of Joseph went out from Jordan at Jericho, at the waters of Jericho on the east, in the waste land, going up from Jericho through the hill-country to Beth-el;
06O||16||2||And it goes out from Beth-el to Luz, and on as far as the limit of the Archites to Ataroth;
06O||16||3||And it goes down to the west to the limit of the Japhletites, to the limit of Beth-horon the lower, as far as Gezer; ending at the sea.
06O||16||4||And the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their heritage.
06O||16||5||And the limit of the land of the children of Ephraim by their families was marked out in this way: the limit of their heritage to the east was Ataroth-addar, to Beth-horon the higher;
06O||16||6||The line goes out to the west at Michmethath on the north; then turning to the east to Taanath-shiloh, going past it on the east of Janoah;
06O||16||7||And from Janoah down to Ataroth, and to Naarah, and touching Jericho, it goes on to Jordan.
06O||16||8||From Tappuah the line goes on to the west to the river of Kanah; ending at the sea. This is the heritage of the children of Ephraim by their families;
06O||16||9||Together with the towns marked out for the children of Ephraim in the heritage of Manasseh, all the towns with their unwalled places.
06O||16||10||And the Canaanites who were living in Gezer were not forced out; but the Canaanites have been living among Ephraim, to this day, as servants, doing forced work.
06O||17||1||And this was the part marked out for the tribe of Manasseh, because he was the oldest son of Joseph. As for Machir, the oldest son of Manasseh, the father of Gilead, because he was a man of war he had Gilead and Bashan.
06O||17||2||And as for the rest of the children of Manasseh, their heritage was given to them by families; for the children of Abiezer, and for the children of Helek, and for the children of Asriel, and for the children of Shechem, and for the children of Hepher, and for the children of Shemida: these were the male children of Manasseh, the son of Joseph, by their families.
06O||17||3||But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but only daughters; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah.
06O||17||4||And they came before Eleazar the priest, and Joshua, the son of Nun, and before the chiefs, saying, The Lord gave orders to Moses to give us a heritage among our brothers: so in agreement with the orders of the Lord he gave them a heritage among their father's brothers.
06O||17||5||And ten parts were given to Manasseh, in addition to the land of Gilead and Bashan, which is on the other side of Jordan;
06O||17||6||Because the daughters of Manasseh had a heritage among his sons, and the land of Gilead was the property of the other sons of Manasseh.
06O||17||7||And the limit of Manasseh's land was from Asher to Michmethath, which is before Shechem; the line goes on to the right hand, to the people of En-tappuah.
06O||17||8||The land of Tappuah was the property of Manasseh; but Tappuah on the edge of Manasseh was the property of the children of Ephraim.
06O||17||9||And the limit goes down to the stream Kanah, to the south of the stream: these towns were Ephraim's among the towns of Manasseh; Manasseh's limit was on the north side of the stream, ending at the sea:
06O||17||10||To the south it is Ephraim's, and to the north it is Manasseh's, and the sea is his limit; and they are touching Asher on the north, and Issachar on the east.
06O||17||11||In Issachar and Asher, Manasseh had Beth-shean and its daughter-towns, and Ibleam and its daughter-towns, and the people of Dor and its daughter-towns, and the people of En-dor and its daughter-towns, and the people of Taanach and its daughter-towns, and the people of Megiddo and its daughter-towns, that is, the three hills.
06O||17||12||But the children of Manasseh were not able to make the people of those towns go out; but the Canaanites would go on living in that land.
06O||17||13||And when the children of Israel had become strong, they put the Canaanites to forced work, in place of driving them out.
06O||17||14||Then the children of Joseph said to Joshua, Why have you given me only one part and one stretch of land for my heritage? For through the blessing given to me by the Lord up to now, I am a great people.
06O||17||15||Then Joshua said to them, If you are such a great people, go up into the woodlands, clearing a place there for yourselves in the land of the Perizzites and the Rephaim, if the hill-country of Ephraim is not wide enough for you.
06O||17||16||And the children of Joseph said, The hill-country is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites living in the valley have iron war-carriages, those in Beth-shean and its towns as well as those in the valley of Jezreel.
06O||17||17||Then Joshua said to the children of Joseph, to Ephraim and Manasseh, You are a great people, and have great power: you are not to have one property only,
06O||17||18||For the hill-country of Gilead will be yours ... the woodland and cut down ... its outskirts will be yours ... get the Canaanites out, for they have iron war-carriages ... strong.
06O||18||1||And all the meeting of the children of Israel came together at Shiloh and put up the Tent of meeting there: and the land was crushed before them.
06O||18||2||But there were still seven tribes among the children of Israel who had not taken up their heritage.
06O||18||3||Then Joshua said to the children of Israel, Why are you so slow to go in and take up your heritage in the land which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?
06O||18||4||Take from among you three men from every tribe; and I will send them to go through the land and make a record of it for distribution as their heritage; then let them come back to me.
06O||18||5||And let them make division of it into seven parts: let Judah keep inside his limit on the south, and let the children of Joseph keep inside their limit on the north.
06O||18||6||And you are to have the land marked out in seven parts, and come back to me with the record; and I will make the distribution for you here by the decision of the Lord our God.
06O||18||7||For the Levites have no part among you; to be the Lord's priests is their heritage; and Gad and Reuben and the half-tribe of Manasseh have had their heritage on the east side of Jordan, given to them by Moses, the servant of the Lord.
06O||18||8||So the men got up and went; and Joshua gave orders to those who went, to make a record of the land, saying, Go up and down through the land, and make a record of it and come back here to me, and I will make the distribution for you here by the decision of the Lord in Shiloh.
06O||18||9||So the men went, travelling through the land, and made a record of it by towns in seven parts in a book, and came back to Joshua to the tent-circle at Shiloh.
06O||18||10||And Joshua made the distribution for them in Shiloh by the decision of the Lord, marking out the land for the children of Israel by their divisions.
06O||18||11||And the first heritage came out for the tribe of Benjamin by their families: and the limit of their heritage went between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.
06O||18||12||And their limit on the north was from the Jordan, and the line goes up to the side of Jericho on the north and through the hill-country to the west, ending at the waste land of Beth-aven.
06O||18||13||And from there the line goes south to Luz, to the side of Luz (which is Beth-el), then down to Ataroth-addar, by the mountain to the south of Beth-horon the lower.
06O||18||14||And the limit is marked as coming round to the south on the west side from the mountain which is south of Beth-horon, and ending at Kiriath-baal (which is Kiriath-jearim), a town of the children of Judah: this is the west part.
06O||18||15||And the south part is from the farthest point of Kiriath-jearim, and the line goes out to the west to the fountain of the waters of Nephtoah:
06O||18||16||And the line goes down to the farthest part of the mountain facing the valley of the son of Hinnom, which is on the north of the valley of Rephaim: from there it goes down to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of the Jebusite on the south as far as En-rogel;
06O||18||17||And it goes to En-shemesh and on to Geliloth, opposite the way up to Adummim, and it goes down to the stone of Bohan, the son of Reuben;
06O||18||18||And it goes on to the side facing the Arabah to the north, and down to the Arabah;
06O||18||19||And on to the north side of Beth-hoglah, ending at the north inlet of the Salt Sea at the south end of Jordan; this is their limit on the south.
06O||18||20||And the limit of the east part is the Jordan. This is the heritage of the children of Benjamin, marked out for their families by these limits on all sides.
06O||18||21||And the towns of the children of Benjamin, given to them in the order of their families, are Jericho and Beth-hoglah and Emek-kezziz
06O||18||22||And Beth-arabah and Zemaraim and Beth-el
06O||18||23||And Avvim and Parah and Ophrah
06O||18||24||And Chephar-Ammoni and Ophni and Geba; twelve towns with their unwalled places;
06O||18||25||Gibeon and Ramah and Beeroth
06O||18||26||And Mizpeh and Chephirah and Mozah
06O||18||27||And Rekem and Irpeel and Taralah
06O||18||28||And Zela, Eleph and the Jebusite (which is Jerusalem), Gibeath and Kiriath; fourteen towns with their unwalled places. This is the heritage of the children of Benjamin by their families.
06O||19||1||And the second heritage came out for the tribe of Simeon by their families; and their heritage was in the middle of the heritage of the children of Judah.
06O||19||2||And they had for their heritage Beer-sheba and Shema and Moladah
06O||19||3||And Hazar-shual and Balah and Ezem
06O||19||4||And Eltolad and Bethul and Hormah
06O||19||5||And Ziklag and Beth-marcaboth and Hazar-susah
06O||19||6||And Beth-lebaoth and Sharuhen; thirteen towns with their unwalled places;
06O||19||7||Ain, Rimmon, and Ether and Ashan; four towns with their unwalled places;
06O||19||8||And all the unwalled places round about these towns as far as Baalath-beer-ramah to the south. This is the heritage of the tribe of Simeon by their families.
06O||19||9||The heritage of Simeon was taken out of Judah's stretch of land, for Judah's part was more than they had need of, so the heritage of the children of Simeon was inside their heritage.
06O||19||10||And the third heritage came out for Zebulun by their families; the limit of their heritage was as far as Sarid;
06O||19||11||And their limit goes up to the west to Maralah, stretching to Dabbesheth, and to the stream in front of Jokneam;
06O||19||12||Then turning east from Sarid to the limit of Chisloth-tabor, it goes out to Daberath, and up to Japhia;
06O||19||13||And from there it goes on east to Gath-hepher, to Eth-kazin; ending at Rimmon which goes as far as Neah;
06O||19||14||And the line goes round it on the north to Hannathon, ending at the valley of Iphtah-el;
06O||19||15||And Kattath and Nahalal and Shimron and Idalah and Beth-lehem; twelve towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||16||This is the heritage of the children of Zebulun by their families, these towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||17||For Issachar the fourth heritage came out, for the children of Issachar by their families;
06O||19||18||And their limit was to Jezreel and Chesulloth and Shunem
06O||19||19||And Hapharaim and Shion and Anaharath
06O||19||20||And Rabbith and Kishion and Ebez
06O||19||21||And Remeth and En-gannim and En-haddah and Beth-pazzez;
06O||19||22||And their limit goes as far as Tabor and Shahazimah and Beth-shemesh, ending at Jordan; sixteen towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||23||This is the heritage of the tribe of the children of Issachar by their families, these towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||24||And the fifth heritage came out for the tribe of Asher by their families.
06O||19||25||And their limit was Helkath and Hali and Beten and Achshaph
06O||19||26||And Alammelech and Amad and Mishal, stretching to Carmel on the west and Shihor-libnath;
06O||19||27||Turning to the east to Beth-dagon and stretching to Zebulun and the valley of Iphtah-el as far as Beth-emek and Neiel to the north; on the left it goes as far as Cabul
06O||19||28||And Ebron and Rehob and Hammon and Kanah, to great Zidon;
06O||19||29||And the limit goes round to Ramah and the walled town of Tyre and Hosah, ending at the sea by Heleb and Achzib;
06O||19||30||And Ummah and Aphek and Rehob; twenty-two towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||31||This is the heritage of the tribe of the children of Asher by their families, these towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||32||For the children of Naphtali the sixth heritage came out, for the children of Naphtali by their families;
06O||19||33||And their limit was from Heleph, from the oak-tree in Zaanannim, and Adami-hannekeb and Jabneel, as far as Lakkum, ending at Jordan;
06O||19||34||And turning west to Aznoth-tabor, the limit goes out from there to Hukkok, stretching to Zebulun on the south, and Asher on the west, and Judah at Jordan on the east.
06O||19||35||And the walled towns are Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth
06O||19||36||And Adamah and Ramah and Hazor
06O||19||37||And Kedesh and Edrei and En-Hazor
06O||19||38||And Iron and Migdal-el, Horem and Beth-anath and Beth-shemesh; nineteen towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||39||This is the heritage of the tribe of the children of Naphtali by their families, these towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||40||For the tribe of Dan by their families the seventh heritage came out;
06O||19||41||And the limit of their heritage was Zorah and Eshtaol and Ir-shemesh
06O||19||42||And Shaalabbin and Aijalon and Ithlah
06O||19||43||And Elon and Timnah and Ekron
06O||19||44||And Eltekeh and Gibbethon and Baalath
06O||19||45||And Jehud and Bene-berak and Gath-rimmon;
06O||19||46||And on the west was ... opposite Joppa.
06O||19||47||(But the limit of the children of Dan was not wide enough for them; so the children of Dan went up and made war on Leshem and took it, putting it to the sword without mercy, and they took it for their heritage and made a place for themselves there, giving it the name of Leshem-dan, after the name of their father, Dan.)
06O||19||48||This is the heritage of the tribe of the children of Dan by their families, these towns with their unwalled places.
06O||19||49||So the distribution of the land and its limits was complete; and the children of Israel gave Joshua, the son of Nun, a heritage among them;
06O||19||50||By the orders of the Lord they gave him the town for which he made request, Timnath-serah in the hill-country of Ephraim: there, after building the town, he made his living-place.
06O||19||51||These are the heritages which Eleazar the priest and Joshua, the son of Nun, and the heads of families of the tribes of the children of Israel gave out at Shiloh, by the decision of the Lord, at the door of the Tent of meeting. So the distribution of the land was complete.
06O||20||1||And the Lord said to Joshua,
06O||20||2||Say to the children of Israel, Let certain towns be marked out as safe places, as I said to you by the mouth of Moses,
06O||20||3||So that any man who in error and without design has taken the life of another, may go in flight to them: and they will be safe places for you from him who has the right of punishment for blood.
06O||20||4||And if anyone goes in flight to one of those towns, and comes into the public place of the town, and puts his cause before the responsible men of the town, they will take him into the town and give him a place among them where he may be safe.
06O||20||5||And if the one who has the right of punishment comes after him, they are not to give the taker of life up to him; because he was the cause of his neighbour's death without designing it and not in hate.
06O||20||6||And he is to go on living in that town till he has to come before the meeting of the people to be judged; (till the death of him who is high priest at that time:) then the taker of life may come back to his town and to his house, to the town from which he had gone in flight.
06O||20||7||So they made selection of Kedesh in Galilee in the hill-country of Naphtali, and Shechem in the hill-country of Ephraim, and Kiriath-arba (which is Hebron) in the hill-country of Judah.
06O||20||8||And on the east side of Jordan at Jericho, they made selection of Bezer in the waste land, in the table-land, out of the tribe of Reuben, and Ramoth in Gilead out of the tribe of Gad, and Golan in Bashan out of the tribe of Manasseh.
06O||20||9||These were the towns marked out for all the children of Israel and for the man from a strange country living among them, so that anyone causing the death of another in error, might go in flight there, and not be put to death by him who has the right of punishment for blood till he had come before the meeting of the people.
06O||21||1||Then the heads of the families of the Levites came to Eleazar the priest and Joshua, the son of Nun, and to the heads of families of the tribes of the children of Israel;
06O||21||2||And said to them in Shiloh in the land of Canaan, The Lord gave orders by Moses that we were to have towns for living in, with their grass-lands for our cattle.
06O||21||3||And the children of Israel out of their heritage gave to the Levites these towns with their grass-lands, by the order of the Lord.
06O||21||4||And the heritage came out for the families of the Kohathites: the children of Aaron the priest, who were of the Levites, were given thirteen towns from the tribes of Judah, Simeon, and Benjamin.
06O||21||5||The rest of the children of Kohath by their families were given ten towns from the tribes of Ephraim and Dan and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
06O||21||6||The children of Gershon by their families were given thirteen towns from the tribes of Issachar and Asher and Naphtali and the half-tribe of Manasseh which was in Bashan.
06O||21||7||The children of Merari by their families were given twelve towns from the tribes of Reuben and Gad and Zebulun.
06O||21||8||All these towns with their grass-lands the children of Israel gave by the decision of the Lord to the Levites, as the Lord had given orders by Moses.
06O||21||9||From the tribes of the children of Judah and the children of Simeon they gave these towns, listed here by name:
06O||21||10||These were for the children of Aaron among the families of the Kohathites, of the children of Levi: for they came first in the distribution.
06O||21||11||They gave them Kiriath-arba, the town of Arba, the father of Anak, (which is Hebron) in the hill-country of Judah, with its grass-lands.
06O||21||12||But the open country round the town, and its unwalled places, they gave to Caleb, the son of Jephunneh, as his property.
06O||21||13||And to the children of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron with its grass-lands, the town where the taker of life might be safe, and Libnah with its grass-lands;
06O||21||14||And Jattir with its grass-lands, and Eshtemoa with its grass-lands;
06O||21||15||And Holon with its grass-lands, and Debir with its grass-lands;
06O||21||16||And Ain, and Juttah, and Beth-shemesh, with their grass-lands; nine towns from those two tribes.
06O||21||17||And from the tribe of Benjamin they gave Gibeon and Geba with their grass-lands;
06O||21||18||Anathoth and Almon with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||19||Thirteen towns with their grass-lands were given to the children of Aaron, the priests.
06O||21||20||The rest of the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites, were given towns from the tribe of Ephraim.
06O||21||21||And they gave them Shechem with its grass-lands in the hill-country of Ephraim, the town where the taker of life might be safe, and Gezer with its grass-lands;
06O||21||22||And Kibzaim and Beth-horon with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||23||And from the tribe of Dan, Elteke and Gibbethon with their grass-lands;
06O||21||24||Aijalon and Gath-rimmon with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||25||And from the half-tribe of Manasseh, Taanach and Gath-rimmon with their grass-lands, two towns.
06O||21||26||All the towns of the rest of the families of the children of Kohath were ten with their grass-lands.
06O||21||27||And to the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, they gave from the half-tribe of Manasseh, Golan in Bashan with its grass-lands, the town where the taker of life might be safe, and Ashtaroth with its grass-lands, two towns.
06O||21||28||And from the tribe of Issachar, Kishion and Daberath with their grass-lands;
06O||21||29||Jarmuth and En-gannim with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||30||And from the tribe of Asher, Mishal and Abdon, with their grass-lands:
06O||21||31||Helkath and Rehob with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||32||And from the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with its grass-lands, the town where the taker of life might be safe, and Hammoth-dor and Kartan with their grass-lands, three towns.
06O||21||33||All the towns of the Gershonites with their families were thirteen with their grass-lands.
06O||21||34||And to the rest of the Levites, that is, the families of the children of Merari, they gave from the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam and Kartah with their grass-lands;
06O||21||35||Dimnah and Nahalal with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||36||And from the tribe of Reuben, Bezer and Jahaz with their grass-lands;
06O||21||37||Kedemoth and Mephaath with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||38||And from the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead, the town where the taker of life might be safe, and Mahanaim with their grass-lands;
06O||21||39||Heshbon and Jazer with their grass-lands, four towns.
06O||21||40||All these towns were given to the children of Merari by their families, that is, the rest of the families of the Levites; and their heritage was twelve towns.
06O||21||41||All the towns of the Levites, among the heritage of the children of Israel, were forty-eight towns with their grass-lands.
06O||21||42||Every one of these towns had grass-lands round it.
06O||21||43||So the Lord gave to Israel all the land which he gave by oath to their fathers; so it became their heritage and their living-place.
06O||21||44||And the Lord gave them peace on every side, as he had said to their fathers: all those who were against them gave way before them, for the Lord gave them all up into their hands.
06O||21||45||The Lord kept faith with the house of Israel about all the good which he said he would do for them, and all his words came true.
06O||22||1||Then Joshua sent for the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh,
06O||22||2||And said to them, You have kept all the orders of Moses, the Lord's servant, and have done everything I gave you orders to do:
06O||22||3||You have now been with your brothers for a long time; till this day you have been doing the orders of the Lord your God.
06O||22||4||And now the Lord your God has given your brothers rest, as he said: so now you may go back to your tents, to the land of your heritage, which Moses, the Lord's servant, gave to you on the other side of Jordan.
06O||22||5||Only take great care to do the orders and the law which Moses, the Lord's servant, gave you; to have love for the Lord your God and to go in all his ways; and to keep his laws and to be true to him and to be his servants with all your heart and with all your soul.
06O||22||6||Then Joshua gave them his blessing and sent them away: and they went back to their tents.
06O||22||7||Now to the one half of the tribe of Manasseh, Moses had given a heritage in Bashan; but to the other half, Joshua gave a heritage among their brothers on the west side of Jordan. Now when Joshua sent them away to their tents, he gave them his blessing,
06O||22||8||And said to them, Go back with much wealth to your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver and gold and brass and iron, and with a very great store of clothing; give your brothers a part of the goods taken in the war.
06O||22||9||So Reuben and Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh went back, parting from the children of Israel at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, to go to the land of Gilead, to the land of their heritage which had been given to them by the Lord's order to Moses.
06O||22||10||Now when they came to the country by Jordan in the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh put up there, by Jordan, a great altar, seen from far.
06O||22||11||And news came to the children of Israel, See, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh have put up an altar opposite the land of Canaan, in the country by Jordan on the side which is Israel's.
06O||22||12||Then all the meeting of the children of Israel, hearing this, came together at Shiloh to go up against them to war.
06O||22||13||And the children of Israel sent Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the priest, to the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, to the land of Gilead,
06O||22||14||And with him they sent ten chiefs, one for every tribe of the children of Israel, every one of them the head of his house among the families of Israel.
06O||22||15||And they came to the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh, to the land of Gilead, and said to them,
06O||22||16||This is what all the meeting of the people of the Lord has said, What is this wrong which you have done against the God of Israel, turning back this day from the Lord and building an altar for yourselves, and being false to the Lord?
06O||22||17||Was not the sin of Baal-peor great enough, from which we are not clear even to this day, though punishment came on the people of the Lord,
06O||22||18||That now you are turned back from the Lord? and, because you are false to him today, tomorrow his wrath will be let loose on all the people of Israel.
06O||22||19||But if the land you now have is unclean, come over into the Lord's land where his House is, and take up your heritage among us: but do not be false to the Lord and to us by building yourselves an altar in addition to the altar of the Lord our God.
06O||22||20||Did not Achan, the son of Zerah, do wrong about the cursed thing, causing wrath to come on all the people of Israel? And not on him only came the punishment of death.
06O||22||21||Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh said in answer to the heads of the families of Israel,
06O||22||22||God, even God the Lord, God, even God the Lord, he sees, and Israel will see--if it is in pride or in sin against the Lord,
06O||22||23||That we have made ourselves an altar, being false to the Lord, keep us not safe from death this day; and if for the purpose of offering burned offerings on it and meal offerings, or peace-offerings, let the Lord himself send punishment for it;
06O||22||24||And if we have not, in fact, done this designedly and with purpose, having in our minds the fear that in time to come your children might say to our children, What have you to do with the Lord, the God of Israel?
06O||22||25||For the Lord has made Jordan a line of division between us and you, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad; you have no part in the Lord: so your children will make our children give up fearing the Lord.
06O||22||26||So we said, Let us now make an altar for ourselves, not for burned offerings or for the offerings of beasts:
06O||22||27||But to be a witness between us and you, and between the future generations, that we have the right of worshipping the Lord with our burned offerings and our offerings of beasts and our peace-offerings; so that your children will not be able to say to our children in time to come, You have no part in the Lord.
06O||22||28||For we said to ourselves, If they say this to us or to future generations, then we will say, See this copy of the Lord's altar which our fathers made, not for burned offerings or offerings of beasts, but for a witness between us and you.
06O||22||29||Never let it be said that we were false to the Lord, turning back this day from him and building an altar for burned offerings and meal offerings and offerings of beasts, in addition to the altar of the Lord our God which is before his House.
06O||22||30||Then Phinehas the priest and the chiefs of the meeting and the heads of the families of Israel who were with him, hearing what the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh said, were pleased.
06O||22||31||And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the priest, said to the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh, Now we are certain that the Lord is among us, because you have not done this wrong against the Lord: and you have kept us from falling into the hands of the Lord.
06O||22||32||Then Phinehas, the son of Eleazar the priest, and the chiefs went back from the land of Gilead, from the children of Reuben and the children of Gad, and came to the children of Israel in Canaan and gave them the news.
06O||22||33||And the children of Israel were pleased about this; and they gave praise to God, and had no more thought of going to war against the children of Reuben and the children of Gad for the destruction of their land.
06O||22||34||And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad gave to that altar the name of Ed. For, they said, It is a witness between us that the Lord is God.
06O||23||1||Now after a long time, when the Lord had given Israel rest from wars on every side, and Joshua was old and full of years,
06O||23||2||Joshua sent for all Israel, for their responsible men and their chiefs and their judges and their overseers, and said to them, I am old, and full of years:
06O||23||3||You have seen everything the Lord your God has done to all these nations because of you; for it is the Lord your God who has been fighting for you.
06O||23||4||Now I have given to you, as the heritage of your tribes, all these nations which are still in the land, together with those cut off by me, from Jordan as far as the Great Sea on the west.
06O||23||5||The Lord your God will send them away by force, driving them out before you; and you are to take their land for your heritage, as the Lord your God said to you.
06O||23||6||So be very strong to keep and do whatever is recorded in the book of the law of Moses, not turning away from it to the right or to the left;
06O||23||7||Have nothing to do with these nations who still are living among you; let not their gods be named by you or used in your oaths; do not be their servants or give them worship:
06O||23||8||But be true to the Lord your God as you have been till this day.
06O||23||9||For the Lord has sent out from before you nations great and strong: and they have all given way before you till this day.
06O||23||10||One man of you is able to put to flight a thousand; for it is the Lord your God who is fighting for you, as he has said to you.
06O||23||11||So keep watch on yourselves, and see that you have love for the Lord your God.
06O||23||12||For if you go back, joining yourselves to the rest of these nations who are still among you, getting married to them and living with them and they with you:
06O||23||13||Then you may be certain that the Lord your God will not go on driving these nations out from before you; but they will become a danger and a cause of sin to you, a whip for your sides and thorns in your eyes, till you are cut off from this good land which the Lord your God has given you.
06O||23||14||Now I am about to go the way of all the earth: and you have seen and are certain, all of you, in your hearts and souls, that in all the good things which the Lord said about you, he has kept faith with you; everything has come true for you.
06O||23||15||And you will see that, as all the good things which the Lord your God undertook to do for you, have come to you, so the Lord will send down on you all the evil things till he has made your destruction complete, and you are cut off from the good land which the Lord your God has given you.
06O||23||16||If the agreement of the Lord your God, which was given to you by his orders, is broken, and you become the servants of other gods and give them worship, then the wrath of the Lord will be burning against you, and you will quickly be cut off from the good land which he has given you.
06O||24||1||Then Joshua got all the tribes of Israel together at Shechem; and he sent for the responsible men of Israel and their chiefs and their judges and their overseers; and they took their place before God.
06O||24||2||And Joshua said to all the people, These are the words of the Lord, the God of Israel: In the past your fathers, Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nahor, were living on the other side of the River: and they were worshipping other gods.
06O||24||3||And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the River, guiding him through all the land of Canaan; I made his offspring great in number, and gave him Isaac.
06O||24||4||And to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau: to Esau I gave Mount Seir, as his heritage; but Jacob and his children went down to Egypt.
06O||24||5||And I sent Moses and Aaron, troubling Egypt by all the signs I did among them: and after that I took you out.
06O||24||6||I took your fathers out of Egypt: and you came to the Red Sea; and the Egyptians came after your fathers to the Red Sea, with their war-carriages and their horsemen.
06O||24||7||And at their cry, the Lord made it dark between you and the Egyptians, and made the sea go over them, covering them with its waters; your eyes have seen what I did in Egypt: then for a long time you were living in the waste land.
06O||24||8||And I took you into the lands of the Amorites on the other side of Jordan; and they made war on you, and I gave them into your hands and you took their land; and I sent destruction on them before you.
06O||24||9||Then Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab, went up to war against Israel; and he sent for Balaam, the son of Beor, to put a curse on you:
06O||24||10||But I did not give ear to Balaam; and so he went on blessing you; and I kept you safe from him.
06O||24||11||Then you went over Jordan and came to Jericho: and the men of Jericho made war on you, the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Hivites and the Jebusites: and I gave them up into your hands.
06O||24||12||And I sent the hornet before you, driving out the two kings of the Amorites before you, not with your sword and your bow.
06O||24||13||And I gave you a land on which you had done no work, and towns not of your building, and you are now living in them; and your food comes from vine-gardens and olive-gardens not of your planting.
06O||24||14||So now, go in fear of the Lord, and be his servants with true hearts: put away the gods worshipped by your fathers across the River and in Egypt, and be servants of the Lord.
06O||24||15||And if it seems evil to you to be the servants of the Lord, make the decision this day whose servants you will be: of the gods whose servants your fathers were across the River, or of the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living: but I and my house will be the servants of the Lord.
06O||24||16||Then the people in answer said, Never will we give up the Lord to be the servants of other gods;
06O||24||17||For it is the Lord our God who has taken us and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, out of the prison-house, and who did all those great signs before our eyes, and kept us safe on all our journeys, and among all the peoples through whom we went:
06O||24||18||And the Lord sent out from before us all the peoples, the Amorites living in the land: so we will be the servants of the Lord, for he is our God.
06O||24||19||And Joshua said to the people, You are not able to be the servants of the Lord, for he is a holy God, a God who will not let his honour be given to another: he will have no mercy on your wrongdoing or your sins.
06O||24||20||If you are turned away from the Lord and become the servants of strange gods, then turning against you he will do you evil, cutting you off, after he has done you good.
06O||24||21||And the people said to Joshua, No! But we will be the servants of the Lord.
06O||24||22||And Joshua said to the people, You are witnesses against yourselves that you have made the decision to be the servants of the Lord. And they said, We are witnesses.
06O||24||23||Then, he said, put away the strange gods among you, turning your hearts to the Lord, the God of Israel.
06O||24||24||And the people said to Joshua, We will be the servants of the Lord our God, and we will give ear to his voice.
06O||24||25||So Joshua made an agreement with the people that day, and gave them a rule and a law in Shechem.
06O||24||26||And Joshua put these words on record, writing them in the book of the law of God; and he took a great stone, and put it up there under the oak-tree which was in the holy place of the Lord.
06O||24||27||And Joshua said to all the people, See now, this stone is to be a witness against us; for all the words of the Lord have been said to us in its hearing: so it will be a witness against you if you are false to the Lord your God.
06O||24||28||Then Joshua let the people go away, every man to his heritage.
06O||24||29||Now after these things, the death of Joshua, the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, took place, he being then a hundred and ten years old.
06O||24||30||And they put his body in the earth in the land of his heritage in Timnath-serah, in the hill-country of Ephraim, to the north of Mount Gaash.
06O||24||31||And Israel was true to the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the older men who were still living after Joshua's death, and had seen what the Lord had done for Israel.
06O||24||32||And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel had taken up from Egypt, they put in the earth in Shechem, in the property which Jacob had got from the sons of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for a hundred shekels: and they became the heritage of the children of Joseph.
06O||24||33||Then the death of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, took place; and his body was put in the earth in the hill of Phinehas his son, which had been given to him in the hill-country of Ephraim.
07O||1||1||Now after the death of Joshua, the children of Israel made request to the Lord, saying, Who is to go up first to make war for us against the Canaanites?
07O||1||2||And the Lord said, Judah is to go up: see, I have given the land into his hands.
07O||1||3||Then Judah said to Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my heritage, so that we may make war against the Canaanites; and I will then go with you into your heritage. So Simeon went with him.
07O||1||4||And Judah went up; and the Lord gave the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hands; and they overcame ten thousand of them in Bezek.
07O||1||5||And they came across Adoni-zedek, and made war on him; and they overcame the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
07O||1||6||But Adoni-zedek went in flight; and they went after him and overtook him, and had his thumbs and his great toes cut off.
07O||1||7||And Adoni-zedek said, Seventy kings, whose thumbs and great toes had been cut off, got broken meat under my table: as I have done, so has God done to me in full. And they took him to Jerusalem, and he came to his end there.
07O||1||8||Then the children of Judah made an attack on Jerusalem, and took it, burning down the town after they had put its people to the sword without mercy.
07O||1||9||After that the children of Judah went down to make war on the Canaanites living in the hill-country and in the south and in the lowlands.
07O||1||10||And Caleb went against the Canaanites of Hebron: (now in earlier times Hebron was named Kiriath-arba:) and he put Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai to the sword.
07O||1||11||And from there he went up against the people of Debir. (Now the name of Debir in earlier times was Kiriath-sepher.)
07O||1||12||And Caleb said, I will give Achsah, my daughter, as wife to the man who overcomes Kiriath-sepher and takes it.
07O||1||13||And Othniel, the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it; so he gave him his daughter Achsah for his wife.
07O||1||14||Now when she came to him, he put into her mind the idea of requesting a field from her father: and she got down from her ass; and Caleb said to her, What is it?
07O||1||15||And she said to him, Give me a blessing; because you have put me in a dry south-land, now give me springs of water. So Caleb gave her the higher spring and the lower spring.
07O||1||16||Now Hobab the Kenite, Moses' father-in-law, had come up out of the town of palm-trees, with the children of Judah, into the waste land of Arad; and he went and was living among the Amalekites;
07O||1||17||And Judah went with Simeon, his brother, and overcame the Canaanites living in Zephath, and put it under the curse; and he gave the town the name of Hormah.
07O||1||18||Then Judah took Gaza and its limit, and Ashkelon and its limit, and Ekron and its limit.
07O||1||19||And the Lord was with Judah; and he took the hill-country for his heritage; but he was unable to make the people of the valley go out, for they had war-carriages of iron.
07O||1||20||And they gave Hebron to Caleb, as Moses had said; and he took the land of the three sons of Anak, driving them out from there.
07O||1||21||And the children of Judah did not make the Jebusites who were living in Jerusalem go out; the Jebusites are still living with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem.
07O||1||22||And the family of Joseph went up against Beth-el, and the Lord was with them.
07O||1||23||So they sent men to make a search round Beth-el. (Now the name of the town in earlier times was Luz.)
07O||1||24||And the watchers saw a man coming out of the town, and said to him, If you will make clear to us the way into the town, we will be kind to you.
07O||1||25||So he made clear to them the way into the town, and they put it to the sword; but they let the man and all his family get away safe.
07O||1||26||And he went into the land of the Hittites, building a town there and naming it Luz: which is its name to this day.
07O||1||27||And Manasseh did not take away the land of the people of Beth-shean and its daughter-towns, or of Taanach and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Dor and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Ibleam and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Megiddo and its daughter-towns, driving them out; but the Canaanites would go on living in that land.
07O||1||28||And whenever Israel became strong, they put the Canaanites to forced work, without driving them out completely.
07O||1||29||And Ephraim did not make the Canaanites who were living in Gezer go out; but the Canaanites went on living in Gezer among them.
07O||1||30||Zebulun did not make the people of Kitron or the people of Nahalol go out; but the Canaanites went on living among them and were put to forced work.
07O||1||31||And Asher did not take the land of the people of Acco, or Zidon, or Ahlab, or Achzib, or Helbah, or Aphik, or Rehob, driving them out;
07O||1||32||But the Asherites went on living among the Canaanites, the people of the land, without driving them out.
07O||1||33||Naphtali did not take the land of the people of Beth-shemesh or of Beth-anath, driving them out; but he was living among the Canaanites in the land; however, the people of Beth-shemesh and Beth-anath were put to forced work.
07O||1||34||And the children of Dan were forced into the hill-country by the Amorites, who would not let them come down into the valley;
07O||1||35||For the Amorites would go on living in Mount Heres, in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim; but the children of Joseph became stronger than they, and put them to forced work.
07O||1||36||And the limit of the Edomites went from the slope of Akrabbim from Sela and up.
07O||2||1||Now the angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, *** I took you out of Egypt, guiding you into the land which I gave by an oath to your fathers; and I said, My agreement with you will never be broken by me:
07O||2||2||And you are to make no agreement with the people of this land; you are to see that their altars are broken down: but you have not given ear to my voice: what have you done?
07O||2||3||And so I have said, I will not send them out from before you; but they will be a danger to you, and their gods will be a cause of falling to you.
07O||2||4||Now on hearing these words which the angel of the Lord said to all the children of Israel, the people gave themselves up to loud crying and weeping.
07O||2||5||And they gave that place the name of Bochim, and made offerings there to the Lord.
07O||2||6||And Joshua let the people go away, and the children of Israel went, every man to his heritage, to take the land for themselves.
07O||2||7||And the people were true to the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the responsible men who were still living after the death of Joshua, and had seen all the great work of the Lord which he had done for Israel.
07O||2||8||And death came to Joshua, the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, he being a hundred and ten years old.
07O||2||9||And they put his body in the earth in the land of his heritage in Timnath-heres, in the hill-country of Ephraim to the north of Mount Gaash.
07O||2||10||And in time death overtook all that generation; and another generation came after them, having no knowledge of the Lord or of the things which he had done for Israel.
07O||2||11||And the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord and became ser
