twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for 6 the female ten shekels. And if it be from a month old even unto five years old,

then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female 7 thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver. And if it be from sixty years old

and above ; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for 8 the female ten shekels. But if he be poorer than thy estimation, then he shall

present himself before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to his

ability that vowed shall the priest value him. 9 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the Lord, all that any 10 man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy. He shall not alter it, nor

change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good : and if he shall at all change beast 11 for beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy. And if it be any un

clean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the Lord, then he shall pre12 sent the beast before the priest : and the priest shall value it, whether it be good 13 or bad: las thou valuest'it, who art the priest, so shall it be. But if he will at

all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof unto thy estimation. 14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the Lord, then the

priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad : as the priest shall estimate 15 it, so shall it stand. And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he

shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be his. 16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of his pos

session, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof : 2 an homer 17 of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. If he sanctify his field 18 from the year of jubilee, according to thy estimation it shall stand. But if he

sanctify his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall reckon unto him the

money according to the years that remain, even unto the year of the jubilee, and 19 it shall be abated from thy estimation. And if he that sanctified the field

will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy 20 estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him. And if he will not redeem the

field, or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed 21 any more. But the field, when it goeth out in the jubilee, shall be holy unto

the LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest's. 22 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath bought, which is 23 not of the fields of his possession; then the priest shall reckon unto him the

worth of thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubilee: and he shall give thine 24 estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD. In the year of the

jubilee the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom 25 the possession of the land did belong. And all thy estimations shall be according

to the shekel of the sanctuary : twenty gerahs shall be the shekel. 26 Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the Lord's firstling, no man 27 shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep : it is the LORD's. And if it be of an

unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold

according to thy estimation. 28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of

all that he hath, boîh of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be 29 sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD. None de

voted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put

to death. 30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of 31 the tree, is the Lord's: it is holy unto the LORD. And if a man will at all redeem 32 aught of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. And concerning

the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth un 33 tenth shall be holy unto the Lord. He shall not search whether it be good or

bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the

change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed. 84 These are the commandments, which the Lord commanded Moses for the

children of Israel in mount Sinai.

twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou 4 and Aaron shall number them by their armies. And with you there shall be a

man of every tribe ; every one head of the house of his fathers. 5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you : of the tribe of

6 Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur. Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of 7, 8 Zurishaddai. Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Amminadab. Of Issachar; 9, 10 Nethaneel the son of Zuar. Of Zebulun; Eliab the son of Helon. Of the

ations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the

their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to 46 war in Israel ; even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and

three thousand and five hundred and fifty. 47 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. 48, 49 For the Lord had spoken unto Moses, saying, Only thou shalt not number the 50 tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel: but thou sha

vites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the taberna

cle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp 51 round about the tabernacle. And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites

shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall 52 set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death. And the

children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every 53 man by his own standard, throughout their hosts. But the Levites shall pitch

round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the con

gregation of the children of Israel : and the Levites shall keep the charge of the 54 tabernacle of testimony. And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by bis own standard, with the ensign of their father's & house: 1 far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch. 3 And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of

the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies : and Nahshon the son of Am4 minadab shall be captain of the children of Judah. And his host, and those that

were numbered of them, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred. 5 And those that do pitch next unto him shall be the gribe of Issachar: and Ne6 thaneel the son of Zuar shall be captain of the children of Issachar, And his host,

and those that were numbered thereof, were fifty and four thousand and four 7 hundred. Then the tribe of Zebulun: and Eliab the son of Helon shall be cap.

bered in the camp of Judah were an hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, throughout their armies. These shall first

set forth. 10 On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to

their armies : and the captain of the children of Reuben shall be Elizur the son 11 of Shedeur. And his host, and those that were numbered thereof, were forty 12 and six thousand and five hundred. And those which pitch by him shall be the

And his host, and those that were numbered of tbem, 14 uere fifty and nine thousand and three hundred. Then the tribe of Gad : and 15 the captain of the sons of Gad shall be Eliasaph the son of 'Reuel. And his host,

and those that were numbered of them, were forty and five thousand and six hun. 16 dred and fifty. All that were numbered in the camp of Reuben were an hun.

dred thousand and fifty and one thousand and four hundred and fifty, throughout

their armies. And they shall set forth in the second rank. 17 Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward with the camp of the

Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp, so shall they set forward,

every man in his place by their standards. 18 On the west side shall be the standard of the camp of Ephraim according to their armies : and the captain of the sons of Ephraim shall be Elishama the son

hud. And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were forty 20 thousand and five hundred And by him shall be the tribe of Manasseh : and

the captain of the children of Manasseh shall be Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 2 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were thirty and two thou22 sand and two hundred. Then the tribe of Benjamin: and the captain of the sons 23 of Benjamin shall be Abidan the son of Gideoni. And his host, and those that 24 were numbered of them, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred. All

in the third rank. 25 The standard of the camp of Dan shall be on the north side by their armies:

and the captain of the children of Dan shall be Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 26 And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were threescore and two 27 thousand and seven hundred. And those that encamp by him shall be the tribe of Asher: and the captain of the children of Asher shall be

seven thousand and six hundred. They shall go hindmost with their standards. 32 These are those which were numbered of the children of Israel by the house of

their fathers: all those that were numbered of the camps throughout their hosts 33 were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty. But

the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD com34 manded Moses. And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD

commanded Moses : so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward,

every one after their families, according to the house of their fathers. 3. These also are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD

spake with Moses in mount Sinai. And these are the names of the sons of 2 3 Aaron; Nadab the first born, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. These are the

names of the sons of Aaron, the priests which were anointed, 2 whom he con4 secrated to minister in the priest's office. And Nadab and Abihu died before the

LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's

office in the sight of Aaron their father. 5,6 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Bring the tribe of Levi near, and 7 present them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him. And

they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the

2 Heb. whose hand he filled,

8 tabernacle of the congregation, to do the service of the tabernacle. And they.

shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the 9 charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle. And thou

shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons: they are wholly given unto 10 him out of the children of Israel. And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons,

and they shall wait on their priest's office: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall

be put to death. 11, 12 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, And I, behold, I have taken the

Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth

the matrix among the children of Israel : therefore the Levites shall be mine; 13 because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in

the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and

beast: mine shall they be: I am the LORD. 14,15 And the Lord spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying, Number

the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families : every 16 male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. And Moses

numbered them according to the 1 word of the LORD, as he was commanded. 17 And these were the sons of Levi by their names; Gershon, and Kohath, and 18 Merari. And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families; 19 Libni, and Shimei. And the sons of Kohath by their families; Amram, and 20 and I zehar, Hebron, and Uzziel. And the sons of Merari by their families;

Mahli, and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to the house

of their fathers. 21 Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimites : 22 these are the families of the Gershonites. Those that were numbered of them,

according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even 23 those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred. The 24 families of the Gershonites shall pitch behind the tabernacle westward. And the

chief of the house of the father of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of 25 Lael. And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of the con

gregation shall be the tabernacle, and the tent, the covering thereof, and the 26 hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the hangings of

the court, and the curtain for the door of the court, which is by the tabernacle,

and by the altar round about, and the cords of it for all the service thereof. 27 And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family of the Izeharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and th

elites : 28 these are the families of the Kohathites. In the number of all the males, from

a month old and upward, were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the 29 charge of the sanctuary. The families of the sons of Kohath shall pitch on the 80 side of the tabernacle southward. And the chief of the house of the father of

the fumilies of the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel. 31 And their charge shall be the ark, and the table, and the candlestick, and the

altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith they minister, and the hanging, 32 and all the service thereof. And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be

chief over the chief of the Levites, and have the oversight of them that keep the

charge of the sanctuary. 33 Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the Mushites : 34 these are the families of Merari. And those that were numbered of them,

families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail : these shall pitch on the side 86 of the tabernacle northward. And 2 under the custody and charge of the sons

of Merari shall be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the

pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the vessels thereof, and all that 87 serveth thereto, and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and

their pins, and their cords. 38 But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the

tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons,

keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and 39 the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death. All that were numbered of

the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the

1 Heb. mouth.
