Numbers 5

1
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2
"Command the sons of Israel that they send away from the camp every leper and everyone having a discharge and everyone who is unclean because of a dead person.
3
"You shall send away both male and female; you shall send them outside the camp so that they will not defile their camp where I dwell in their midst.'
4
The sons of Israel did so and sent them outside the camp; just as the LORD had spoken to Moses, thus the sons of Israel did.
5
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
6
"Speak to the sons of Israel, " When a man or woman commits any of the sins of mankind, acting unfaithfully against the LORD, and that person is guilty,
7
then he shall confess his sins which he has committed, and he shall make restitution in full for his wrong and add to it one-fifth of it, and give it to him whom he has wronged.
8
"But if the man has no relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution which is made for the wrong must go to the LORD for the priest, besides the ram of atonement, by which atonement is made for him.
9
" Also every contribution pertaining to all the holy gifts of the sons of Israel, which they offer to the priest, shall be his.
10
"So every man's holy gifts shall be his; whatever any man gives to the priest, it becomes his.'
11
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
12
"Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, "If any man's wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him,
13
and a man has intercourse with her and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband and she is undetected, although she has defiled herself, and there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in the act,
14
if a spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife when she has defiled herself, or if a spirit of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous of his wife when she has not defiled herself,
15
the man shall then bring his wife to the priest, and shall bring as an offering for her one-tenth of an ephah of barley meal; he shall not pour oil on it nor put frankincense on it, for it is a grain offering of jealousy, a grain offering of memorial, a reminder of iniquity.
16
"Then the priest shall bring her near and have her stand before the LORD,
17
and the priest shall take holy water in an earthenware vessel; and he shall take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water.
18
"The priest shall then have the woman stand before the LORD and let the hair of the woman's head go loose, and place the grain offering of memorial in her hands, which is the grain offering of jealousy, and in the hand of the priest is to be the water of bitterness that brings a curse.
19
"The priest shall have her take an oath and shall say to the woman, "If no man has lain with you and if you have not gone astray into uncleanness, being under the authority of your husband, be immune to this water of bitterness that brings a curse;
20
if you, however, have gone astray, being under the authority of your husband, and if you have defiled yourself and a man other than your husband has had intercourse with you'
21
(then the priest shall have the woman swear with the oath of the curse, and the priest shall say to the woman), "the LORD make you a curse and an oath among your people by the LORD'S making your thigh waste away and your abdomen swell;
22
and this water that brings a curse shall go into your stomach, and make your abdomen swell and your thigh waste away.' And the woman shall say, "Amen. Amen.'
23
"The priest shall then write these curses on a scroll, and he shall wash them off into the water of bitterness.
24
"Then he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that brings a curse, so that the water which brings a curse will go into her and cause bitterness.
25
"The priest shall take the grain offering of jealousy from the woman's hand, and he shall wave the grain offering before the LORD and bring it to the altar;
26
and the priest shall take a handful of the grain offering as its memorial offering and offer it up in smoke on the altar, and afterward he shall make the woman drink the water.
27
"When he has made her drink the water, then it shall come about, if she has defiled herself and has been unfaithful to her husband, that the water which brings a curse will go into her and cause bitterness, and her abdomen will swell and her thigh will waste away, and the woman will become a curse among her people.
28
"But if the woman has not defiled herself and is clean, she will then be free and conceive children.
29
"This is the law of jealousy: when a wife, being under the authority of her husband, goes astray and defiles herself,
30
or when a spirit of jealousy comes over a man and he is jealous of his wife, he shall then make the woman stand before the LORD, and the priest shall apply all this law to her.
31
"Moreover, the man will be free from guilt, but that woman shall bear her guilt.' 6

Numbers 6

1
Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2
"Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, "When a man or woman makes a special vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to dedicate himself to the LORD,
3
he shall abstain from wine and strong drink; he shall drink no vinegar, whether made from wine or strong drink, nor shall he drink any grape juice nor eat fresh or dried grapes.
4
"All the days of his separation he shall not eat anything that is produced by the grape vine, from the seeds even to the skin.
5
"All the days of his vow of separation no razor shall pass over his head. He shall be holy until the days are fulfilled for which he separated himself to the LORD; he shall let the locks of hair on his head grow long.
6
" All the days of his separation to the LORD he shall not go near to a dead person.
7
"He shall not make himself unclean for his father or for his mother, for his brother or for his sister, when they die, because his separation to God is on his head.
8
"All the days of his separation he is holy to the LORD.
9
"But if a man dies very suddenly beside him and he defiles his dedicated head of hair, then he shall shave his head on the day when he becomes clean; he shall shave it on the seventh day.
10
"Then on the eighth day he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the priest, to the doorway of the tent of meeting.
11
"The priest shall offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, and make atonement for him concerning his sin because of the dead person. And that same day he shall consecrate his head,
12
and shall dedicate to the LORD his days as a Nazirite, and shall bring a male lamb a year old for a guilt offering; but the former days will be void because his separation was defiled.
13
"Now this is the law of the Nazirite when the days of his separation are fulfilled, he shall bring the offering to the doorway of the tent of meeting.
14
"He shall present his offering to the LORD: one male lamb a year old without defect for a burnt offering and one ewe-lamb a year old without defect for a sin offering and one ram without defect for a peace offering,
15
and a basket of unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil and unleavened wafers spread with oil, along with their grain offering and their drink offering.
16
"Then the priest shall present them before the LORD and shall offer his sin offering and his burnt offering.
17
"He shall also offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD, together with the basket of unleavened cakes; the priest shall likewise offer its grain offering and its drink offering.
18
" The Nazirite shall then shave his dedicated head of hair at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and take the dedicated hair of his head and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of peace offerings.
19
" The priest shall take the ram's shoulder when it has been boiled, and one unleavened cake out of the basket and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them on the hands of the Nazirite after he has shaved his dedicated hair.
20
"Then the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. It is holy for the priest, together with the breast offered by waving and the thigh offered by lifting up; and afterward the Nazirite may drink wine.'
21
"This is the law of the Nazirite who vows his offering to the LORD according to his separation, in addition to what else he can afford; according to his vow which he takes, so he shall do according to the law of his separation.'
22
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
23
"Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, "Thus you shall bless the sons of Israel. You shall say to them:
24
The LORD bless you, and keep you;
25
The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you;
26
The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.'
27
"So they shall invoke My name on the sons of Israel, and I then will bless them.' 7

Numbers 7

1
Now on the day that Moses had finished setting up the tabernacle, he anointed it and consecrated it with all its furnishings and the altar and all its utensils; he anointed them and consecrated them also.
2
Then the leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers' households, made an offering (they were the leaders of the tribes; they were the ones who were over the numbered men).
3
When they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered carts and twelve oxen, a cart for every two of the leaders and an ox for each one, then they presented them before the tabernacle.
4
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5
"Accept these things from them, that they may be used in the service of the tent of meeting, and you shall give them to the Levites, to each man according to his service.'
6
So Moses took the carts and the oxen and gave them to the Levites.
7
Two carts and four oxen he gave to the sons of Gershon, according to their service,
8
and four carts and eight oxen he gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.
9
But he did not give any to the sons of Kohath because theirs was the service of the holy objects, which they carried on the shoulder.
10
The leaders offered the dedication offering for the altar when it was anointed, so the leaders offered their offering before the altar.
11
Then the LORD said to Moses, "Let them present their offering, one leader each day, for the dedication of the altar.'
12

Numbers 8

1
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2
"Speak to Aaron and say to him, "When you mount the lamps, the seven lamps will give light in the front of the lampstand.'
3
Aaron therefore did so; he mounted its lamps at the front of the lampstand, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
4
Now this was the workmanship of the lampstand, hammered work of gold; from its base to its flowers it was hammered work; according to the pattern which the LORD had showed Moses, so he made the lampstand.
5
Again the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
6
"Take the Levites from among the sons of Israel and cleanse them.
7
"Thus you shall do to them, for their cleansing: sprinkle purifying water on them, and let them use a razor over their whole body and wash their clothes, and they will be clean.
8
"Then let them take a bull with its grain offering, fine flour mixed with oil; and a second bull you shall take for a sin offering.
9
"So you shall present the Levites before the tent of meeting. You shall also assemble the whole congregation of the sons of Israel,
10
and present the Levites before the LORD; and the sons of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites.
11
"Aaron then shall present the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the sons of Israel, that they may qualify to perform the service of the LORD.
12
"Now the Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls; then offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering to the LORD, to make atonement for the Levites.
13
"You shall have the Levites stand before Aaron and before his sons so as to present them as a wave offering to the LORD.
14
"Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the sons of Israel, and the Levites shall be Mine.
15
"Then after that the Levites may go in to serve the tent of meeting. But you shall cleanse them and present them as a wave offering;
16
for they are wholly given to Me from among the sons of Israel. I have taken them for Myself instead of every first issue of the womb, the firstborn of all the sons of Israel.
17
"For every firstborn among the sons of Israel is Mine, among the men and among the animals; on the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I sanctified them for Myself.
18
"But I have taken the Levites instead of every firstborn among the sons of Israel.
19
" I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the sons of Israel, to perform the service of the sons of Israel at the tent of meeting and to make atonement on behalf of the sons of Israel, so that there will be no plague among the sons of Israel by their coming near to the sanctuary.'
20
Thus did Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the sons of Israel to the Levites; according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so the sons of Israel did to them.
21
The Levites, too, purified themselves from sin and washed their clothes; and Aaron presented them as a wave offering before the LORD. Aaron also made atonement for them to cleanse them.
22
Then after that the Levites went in to perform their service in the tent of meeting before Aaron and before his sons; just as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so they did to them.
23
Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
24
"This is what applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall enter to perform service in the work of the tent of meeting.
25
"But at the age of fifty years they shall retire from service in the work and not work any more.
26
"They may, however, assist their brothers in the tent of meeting, to keep an obligation, but they themselves shall do no work. Thus you shall deal with the Levites concerning their obligations.' 9
