4 5 6 "Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and that person be guilty;"






4 5 7 "Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth [part] thereof, and give [it] unto [him] against whom he hath trespassed."






4 5 8 "But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, [even] to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him."






4 5 9 "And every offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his."






4 5 10 "And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his."






4 5 11 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 5 12 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,"






4 5 13 "And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and [there be] no witness against her, neither she be taken [with the manner];"






4 5 14 "And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:"






4 5 15 "Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth [part] of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it [is] an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance."






4 5 16 "And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD:"






4 5 17 "And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put [it] into the water:"






4 5 18 "And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which [is] the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:"






4 5 19 "And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness [with another] instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:"






4 5 20 "But if thou hast gone aside [to another] instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:"






4 5 21 "Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;"






4 5 22 "And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make [thy] belly to swell, and [thy] thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen."






4 5 23 "And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot [them] out with the bitter water:"






4 5 24 "And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, [and become] bitter."






4 5 25 "Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar:"






4 5 26 "And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, [even] the memorial thereof, and burn [it] upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water."






4 5 27 "And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, [that], if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, [and become] bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people."






4 5 28 "And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed."






4 5 29 "This [is] the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside [to another] instead of her husband, and is defiled;"






4 5 30 "Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law."






4 5 31 "Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity."






4 6 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 6 2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate [themselves] to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate [themselves] unto the LORD:"






4 6 3 "He shall separate [himself] from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried."






4 6 4 "All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk."






4 6 5 "All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth [himself] unto the LORD, he shall be holy, [and] shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow."






4 6 6 All the days that he separateth [himself] unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body.






4 6 7 "He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God [is] upon his head."






4 6 8 All the days of his separation he [is] holy unto the LORD.






4 6 9 "And if any man die very suddenly by him, and he hath defiled the head of his consecration; then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it."






4 6 10 "And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:"






4 6 11 "And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead, and shall hallow his head that same day."






4 6 12 "And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation, and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering: but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled."






4 6 13 "And this [is] the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled: he shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:"






4 6 14 "And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin offering, and one ram without blemish for peace offerings,"






4 6 15 "And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil, and their meat offering, and their drink offerings."






4 6 16 "And the priest shall bring [them] before the LORD, and shall offer his sin offering, and his burnt offering:"






4 6 17 "And he shall offer the ram [for] a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread: the priest shall offer also his meat offering, and his drink offering."






4 6 18 "And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall take the hair of the head of his separation, and put [it] in the fire which [is] under the sacrifice of the peace offerings."






4 6 19 "And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and shall put [them] upon the hands of the Nazarite, after [the hair of] his separation is shaven:"






4 6 20 "And the priest shall wave them [for] a wave offering before the LORD: this [is] holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave shoulder: and after that the Nazarite may drink wine."






4 6 21 "This [is] the law of the Nazarite who hath vowed, [and of] his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside [that] that his hand shall get: according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation."






4 6 22 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 6 23 "Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,"






4 6 24 "The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:"






4 6 25 "The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:"






4 6 26 "The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."






4 6 27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them.






4 7 1 "And it came to pass on the day that Moses had fully set up the tabernacle, and had anointed it, and sanctified it, and all the instruments thereof, both the altar and all the vessels thereof, and had anointed them, and sanctified them;"






4 7 2 "That the princes of Israel, heads of the house of their fathers, who [were] the princes of the tribes, and were over them that were numbered, offered:"






4 7 3 "And they brought their offering before the LORD, six covered wagons, and twelve oxen; a wagon for two of the princes, and for each one an ox: and they brought them before the tabernacle."






4 7 4 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 7 5 "Take [it] of them, that they may be to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation; and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, to every man according to his service."






4 7 6 "And Moses took the wagons and the oxen, and gave them unto the Levites."






4 7 7 "Two wagons and four oxen he gave unto the sons of Gershon, according to their service:"






4 7 8 "And four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of Merari, according unto their service, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest."






4 7 9 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none: because the service of the sanctuary belonging unto them [was that] they should bear upon their shoulders.






4 7 10 "And the princes offered for dedicating of the altar in the day that it was anointed, even the princes offered their offering before the altar."






4 7 11 "And the LORD said unto Moses, They shall offer their offering, each prince on his day, for the dedicating of the altar."

4 9 6 "And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:"






4 9 7 "And those men said unto him, We [are] defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of the LORD in his appointed season among the children of Israel?"






4 9 8 "And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the LORD will command concerning you."






4 9 9 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 9 10 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or [be] in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the LORD."






4 9 11 "The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, [and] eat it with unleavened bread and bitter [herbs]."






4 9 12 "They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it."






4 9 13 "But the man that [is] clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of the LORD in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin."






4 9 14 "And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto the LORD; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land."






4 9 15 "And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, [namely], the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning."






4 9 16 "So it was alway: the cloud covered it [by day], and the appearance of fire by night."






4 9 17 "And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents."






4 9 18 "At the commandment of the LORD the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the LORD they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents."






4 9 19 "And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the LORD, and journeyed not."






4 9 20 "And [so] it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of the LORD they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of the LORD they journeyed."






4 9 21 "And [so] it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and [that] the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether [it was] by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed."






4 9 22 "Or [whether it were] two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed."






4 9 23 "At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses."






4 10 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 10 2 "Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps."






4 10 3 "And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation."






4 10 4 "And if they blow [but] with one [trumpet], then the princes, [which are] heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee."






4 10 5 "When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward."






4 10 6 "When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey: they shall blow an alarm for their journeys."






4 10 7 "But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm."






4 10 8 "And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations."






4 10 9 "And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies."






4 10 10 "Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I [am] the LORD your God."






4 10 11 "And it came to pass on the twentieth [day] of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from off the tabernacle of the testimony."






4 10 12 And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the wilderness of Sinai; and the cloud rested in the wilderness of Paran.






4 10 13 And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.






4 10 14 In the first [place] went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies: and over his host [was] Nahshon the son of Amminadab.






4 10 15 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar [was] Nethaneel the son of Zuar.






4 10 16 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Zebulun [was] Eliab the son of Helon.






4 10 17 "And the tabernacle was taken down; and the sons of Gershon and the sons of Merari set forward, bearing the tabernacle."






4 10 18 And the standard of the camp of Reuben set forward according to their armies: and over his host [was] Elizur the son of Shedeur.






4 10 19 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Simeon [was] Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.






4 10 20 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Gad [was] Eliasaph the son of Deuel.






4 10 21 "And the Kohathites set forward, bearing the sanctuary: and [the other] did set up the tabernacle against they came."






4 10 22 And the standard of the camp of the children of Ephraim set forward according to their armies: and over his host [was] Elishama the son of Ammihud.






4 10 23 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Manasseh [was] Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.






4 10 24 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Benjamin [was] Abidan the son of Gideoni.






4 10 25 "And the standard of the camp of the children of Dan set forward, [which was] the rereward of all the camps throughout their hosts: and over his host [was] Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai."






4 10 26 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher [was] Pagiel the son of Ocran.






4 10 27 And over the host of the tribe of the children of Naphtali [was] Ahira the son of Enan.






4 10 28 "Thus [were] the journeyings of the children of Israel according to their armies, when they set forward."






4 10 29 "And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses' father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel."






4 10 30 "And he said unto him, I will not go; but I will depart to mine own land, and to my kindred."






4 10 31 "And he said, Leave us not, I pray thee; forasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes."






4 10 32 "And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be, that what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee."






4 10 33 "And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days' journey: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them."






4 10 34 "And the cloud of the LORD [was] upon them by day, when they went out of the camp."






4 10 35 "And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee."






4 10 36 "And when it rested, he said, Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel."






4 11 1 "And [when] the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and the LORD heard [it]; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the LORD burnt among them, and consumed [them that were] in the uttermost parts of the camp."






4 11 2 "And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched."






4 11 3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.






4 11 4 "And the mixt multitude that [was] among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?"






4 11 5 "We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:"






4 11 6 "But now our soul [is] dried away: [there is] nothing at all, beside this manna, [before] our eyes."






4 11 7 "And the manna [was] as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium."






4 11 8 "[And] the people went about, and gathered [it], and ground [it] in mills, or beat [it] in a mortar, and baked [it] in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil."






4 11 9 "And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it."






4 11 10 "Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of the LORD was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased."






4 11 11 "And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?"






4 11 12 "Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?"






4 11 13 "Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat."






4 11 14 "I am not able to bear all this people alone, because [it is] too heavy for me."






4 11 15 "And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness."






4 11 16 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee."






4 11 17 "And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which [is] upon thee, and will put [it] upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear [it] not thyself alone."






4 11 18 "And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for [it was] well with us in Egypt: therefore the LORD will give you flesh, and ye shall eat."






4 11 19 "Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days;"






4 11 20 "[But] even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the LORD which [is] among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?"






4 11 21 "And Moses said, The people, among whom I [am], [are] six hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month."






4 11 22 "Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?"






4 11 23 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD'S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not."






4 11 24 "And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle."






4 11 25 "And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that [was] upon him, and gave [it] unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, [that], when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease."






4 11 26 "But there remained two [of the] men in the camp, the name of the one [was] Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they [were] of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp."






4 11 27 "And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp."






4 11 28 "And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, [one] of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them."






4 11 29 "And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, [and] that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!"






4 11 30 "And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel."






4 11 31 "And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from the sea, and let [them] fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits [high] upon the face of the earth."






4 11 32 "And the people stood up all that day, and all [that] night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread [them] all abroad for themselves round about the camp."






4 11 33 "And while the flesh [was] yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague."






4 11 34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.






4 11 35 [And] the people journeyed from Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.






4 12 1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.






4 12 2 "And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard [it]."






4 12 3 "(Now the man Moses [was] very meek, above all the men which [were] upon the face of the earth.)"






4 12 4 "And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out."






4 12 5 "And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood [in] the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth."






4 12 6 "And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, [I] the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision, [and] will speak unto him in a dream."






4 12 7 "My servant Moses [is] not so, who [is] faithful in all mine house."






4 12 8 "With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?"






4 12 9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed.






4 12 10 "And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam [became] leprous, [white] as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, [she was] leprous."






4 12 11 "And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned."






4 12 12 "Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother's womb."






4 12 13 "And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee."






4 12 14 "And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in [again]."






4 12 15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in [again].

4 13 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 13 2 "Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them."






4 13 3 And Moses by the commandment of the LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran: all those men [were] heads of the children of Israel.

4 13 16 These [are] the names of the men which Moses sent to spy out the land. And Moses called Oshea the son of Nun Jehoshua.






4 13 17 "And Moses sent them to spy out the land of Canaan, and said unto them, Get you up this [way] southward, and go up into the mountain:"






4 13 18 "And see the land, what it [is]; and the people that dwelleth therein, whether they [be] strong or weak, few or many;"






4 13 19 "And what the land [is] that they dwell in, whether it [be] good or bad; and what cities [they be] that they dwell in, whether in tents, or in strong holds;"






4 13 20 "And what the land [is], whether it [be] fat or lean, whether there be wood therein, or not. And be ye of good courage, and bring of the fruit of the land. Now the time [was] the time of the firstripe grapes."






4 13 21 "So they went up, and searched the land from the wilderness of Zin unto Rehob, as men come to Hamath."






4 13 22 "And they ascended by the south, and came unto Hebron; where Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the children of Anak, [were]. (Now Hebron was built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.)"






4 13 23 "And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and [they brought] of the pomegranates, and of the figs."






4 13 24 "The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence."






4 13 25 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days.






4 13 26 "And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land."






4 13 27 "And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this [is] the fruit of it."






4 13 28 "Nevertheless the people [be] strong that dwell in the land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there."






4 13 29 "The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan."






4 13 30 "And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it."






4 13 31 "But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they [are] stronger than we."






4 13 32 "And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, [is] a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it [are] men of a great stature."






4 13 33 "And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."






4 14 1 "And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night."






4 14 2 "And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!"






4 14 3 "And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?"






4 14 4 "And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt."






4 14 5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.






4 14 6 "And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, [which were] of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:"






4 14 7 "And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, [is] an exceeding good land."






4 14 8 "If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey."






4 14 9 "Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they [are] bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD [is] with us: fear them not."






4 14 10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.






4 14 11 "And the LORD said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?"






4 14 12 "I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they."






4 14 13 "And Moses said unto the LORD, Then the Egyptians shall hear [it], (for thou broughtest up this people in thy might from among them;)"






4 14 14 "And they will tell [it] to the inhabitants of this land: [for] they have heard that thou LORD [art] among this people, that thou LORD art seen face to face, and [that] thy cloud standeth over them, and [that] thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night."






4 14 15 "Now [if] thou shalt kill [all] this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,"






4 14 16 "Because the LORD was not able to bring this people into the land which he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the wilderness."






4 14 17 "And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my Lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying,"






4 14 18 "The LORD [is] longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing [the guilty], visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation]."






4 14 19 "Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now."






4 14 20 "And the LORD said, I have pardoned according to thy word:"






4 14 21 "But [as] truly [as] I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the LORD."






4 14 22 "Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;"






4 14 23 "Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:"






4 14 24 "But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it."






4 14 25 "(Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) To morrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea."






4 14 26 "And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,"






4 14 27 "How long [shall I bear with] this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me."






4 14 28 "Say unto them, [As truly as] I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:"






4 14 29 "Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,"






4 14 30 "Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, [concerning] which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun."






4 14 31 "But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised."






4 14 32 "But [as for] you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness."






4 14 33 "And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness."






4 14 34 "After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, [even] forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, [even] forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise." LCB: "The day of the Lord is one year." Some Answered Questions, Chapter 10, within pp. 36-45

4 14 35 "I the LORD have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die."






4 14 36 "And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,"






4 14 37 "Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the LORD."






4 14 38 "But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, [which were] of the men that went to search the land, lived [still]."






4 14 39 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.






4 14 40 "And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we [be here], and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned."






4 14 41 "And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the LORD? but it shall not prosper."






4 14 42 "Go not up, for the LORD [is] not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies."






4 14 43 "For the Amalekites and the Canaanites [are] there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the LORD, therefore the LORD will not be with you."






4 14 44 "But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and Moses, departed not out of the camp."






4 14 45 "Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, [even] unto Hormah."






4 15 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 15 2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,"






4 15 3 "And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the herd, or of the flock:"






4 15 4 Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth [part] of an hin of oil.






4 15 5 "And the fourth [part] of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb."






4 15 6 "Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare [for] a meat offering two tenth deals of flour mingled with the third [part] of an hin of oil."






4 15 7 "And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third [part] of an hin of wine, [for] a sweet savour unto the LORD."






4 15 8 "And when thou preparest a bullock [for] a burnt offering, or [for] a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD:"






4 15 9 Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil.






4 15 10 "And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine, [for] an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."






4 15 11 "Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid."






4 15 12 "According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number."






4 15 13 "All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."






4 15 14 "And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever [be] among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do."






4 15 15 "One ordinance [shall be both] for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth [with you], an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye [are], so shall the stranger be before the LORD."






4 15 16 "One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you."






4 15 17 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 15 18 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,"






4 15 19 "Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD."






4 15 20 "Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough [for] an heave offering: as [ye do] the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall ye heave it."






4 15 21 Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations.






4 15 22 "And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,"






4 15 23 "[Even] all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded [Moses], and henceforward among your generations;"






4 15 24 "Then it shall be, if [ought] be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering."






4 15 25 "And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it [is] ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance:"






4 15 26 "And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the people [were] in ignorance."






4 15 27 "And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering."






4 15 28 "And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him."






4 15 29 "Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, [both for] him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them."






4 15 30 "But the soul that doeth [ought] presumptuously, [whether he be] born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people."






4 15 31 "Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity [shall be] upon him."






4 15 32 "And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day."






4 15 33 "And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation."






4 15 34 "And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him."






4 15 35 "And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp."






4 15 36 "And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses."






4 15 37 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 15 38 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:"






4 15 39 "And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:"






4 15 40 "That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God."






4 15 41 "I [am] the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I [am] the LORD your God."






4 16 1 "Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took [men]:"






4 16 2 "And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:"






4 16 3 "And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, [Ye take] too much upon you, seeing all the congregation [are] holy, every one of them, and the LORD [is] among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the LORD?"






4 16 4 "And when Moses heard [it], he fell upon his face:"






4 16 5 "And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who [are] his, and [who is] holy; and will cause [him] to come near unto him: even [him] whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him."






4 16 6 "This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company;"






4 16 7 "And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow: and it shall be [that] the man whom the LORD doth choose, he [shall be] holy: [ye take] too much upon you, ye sons of Levi."






4 16 8 "And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:"






4 16 9 "[Seemeth it but] a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?"






4 16 10 "And he hath brought thee near [to him], and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?"






4 16 11 "For which cause [both] thou and all thy company [are] gathered together against the LORD: and what [is] Aaron, that ye murmur against him?"






4 16 12 "And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab: which said, We will not come up:"






4 16 13 "[Is it] a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?"






4 16 14 "Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards: wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? we will not come up."






4 16 15 "And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the LORD, Respect not thou their offering: I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them."






4 16 16 "And Moses said unto Korah, Be thou and all thy company before the LORD, thou, and they, and Aaron, to morrow:"






4 16 17 "And take every man his censer, and put incense in them, and bring ye before the LORD every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers; thou also, and Aaron, each [of you] his censer."






4 16 18 "And they took every man his censer, and put fire in them, and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron."






4 16 19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the congregation.






4 16 20 "And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,"






4 16 21 "Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment."






4 16 22 "And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation?"






4 16 23 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 16 24 "Speak unto the congregation, saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram."






4 16 25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram; and the elders of Israel followed him.






4 16 26 "And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins."






4 16 27 "So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children."






4 16 28 "And Moses said, Hereby ye shall know that the LORD hath sent me to do all these works; for [I have] not [done them] of mine own mind."






4 16 29 "If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited after the visitation of all men; [then] the LORD hath not sent me."






4 16 30 "But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that [appertain] unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD."






4 16 31 "And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that [was] under them:"






4 16 32 "And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that [appertained] unto Korah, and all [their] goods."






4 16 33 "They, and all that [appertained] to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation."






4 16 34 "And all Israel that [were] round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up [also]."






4 16 35 "And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense."






4 16 36 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 16 37 "Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed."






4 16 38 "The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates [for] a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel."






4 16 39 "And Eleazar the priest took the brasen censers, wherewith they that were burnt had offered; and they were made broad [plates for] a covering of the altar:"






4 16 40 "[To be] a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which [is] not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the LORD said to him by the hand of Moses."






4 16 41 "But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the people of the LORD."






4 16 42 "And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation: and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the LORD appeared."






4 16 43 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.






4 16 44 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 16 45 "Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment. And they fell upon their faces."






4 16 46 "And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the LORD; the plague is begun."






4 16 47 "And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people."






4 16 48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.






4 16 49 "Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah."






4 16 50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.






4 17 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 17 2 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of them a rod according to the house of [their] fathers, of all their princes according to the house of their fathers twelve rods: write thou every man's name upon his rod."






4 17 3 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi: for one rod [shall be] for the head of the house of their fathers.






4 17 4 "And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the congregation before the testimony, where I will meet with you."






4 17 5 "And it shall come to pass, [that] the man's rod, whom I shall choose, shall blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel, whereby they murmur against you."






4 17 6 "And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, [even] twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron [was] among their rods."






4 17 7 And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle of witness.






4 17 8 "And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds."






4 17 9 "And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto all the children of Israel: and they looked, and took every man his rod."






4 17 10 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not."






4 17 11 "And Moses did [so]: as the LORD commanded him, so did he."






4 17 12 "And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish."






4 17 13 Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?






4 18 1 "And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father's house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood."






4 18 2 "And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness."






4 18 3 "And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die."






4 18 4 "And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you."






4 18 5 "And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel."






4 18 6 "And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you [they are] given [as] a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation."






4 18 7 "Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest's office for every thing of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest's office [unto you] as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death."






4 18 8 "And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things of the children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for ever."






4 18 9 "This shall be thine of the most holy things, [reserved] from the fire: every oblation of theirs, every meat offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every trespass offering of theirs, which they shall render unto me, [shall be] most holy for thee and for thy sons."






4 18 10 In the most holy [place] shalt thou eat it; every male shall eat it: it shall be holy unto thee.






4 18 11 "And this [is] thine; the heave offering of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Israel: I have given them unto thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: every one that is clean in thy house shall eat of it."






4 18 12 "All the best of the oil, and all the best of the wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they shall offer unto the LORD, them have I given thee."






4 18 13 "[And] whatsoever is first ripe in the land, which they shall bring unto the LORD, shall be thine; every one that is clean in thine house shall eat [of] it."






4 18 14 Every thing devoted in Israel shall be thine.






4 18 15 "Every thing that openeth the matrix in all flesh, which they bring unto the LORD, [whether it be] of men or beasts, shall be thine: nevertheless the firstborn of man shalt thou surely redeem, and the firstling of unclean beasts shalt thou redeem."






4 18 16 "And those that are to be redeemed from a month old shalt thou redeem, according to thine estimation, for the money of five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary, which [is] twenty gerahs."






4 18 17 "But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they [are] holy: thou shalt sprinkle their blood upon the altar, and shalt burn their fat [for] an offering made by fire, for a sweet savour unto the LORD."






4 18 18 "And the flesh of them shall be thine, as the wave breast and as the right shoulder are thine."






4 18 19 "All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer unto the LORD, have I given thee, and thy sons and thy daughters with thee, by a statute for ever: it [is] a covenant of salt for ever before the LORD unto thee and to thy seed with thee."






4 18 20 "And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I [am] thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel."






4 18 21 "And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, [even] the service of the tabernacle of the congregation."






4 18 22 "Neither must the children of Israel henceforth come nigh the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die."






4 18 23 "But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity: [it shall be] a statute for ever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel they have no inheritance."






4 18 24 "But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer [as] an heave offering unto the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, Among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance."






4 18 25 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 18 26 "Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, [even] a tenth [part] of the tithe."






4 18 27 "And [this] your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though [it were] the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the fulness of the winepress."






4 18 28 "Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the LORD of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the LORD'S heave offering to Aaron the priest."






4 18 29 "Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the LORD, of all the best thereof, [even] the hallowed part thereof out of it."






4 18 30 "Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the best thereof from it, then it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress."






4 18 31 "And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households: for it [is] your reward for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation."






4 18 32 "And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall ye pollute the holy things of the children of Israel, lest ye die."






4 19 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,"






4 19 2 "This [is] the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein [is] no blemish, [and] upon which never came yoke:"






4 19 3 "And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may bring her forth without the camp, and [one] shall slay her before his face:"






4 19 4 "And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and sprinkle of her blood directly before the tabernacle of the congregation seven times:"






4 19 5 "And [one] shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:"






4 19 6 "And the priest shall take cedar wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast [it] into the midst of the burning of the heifer."






4 19 7 "Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the priest shall be unclean until the even."






4 19 8 "And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even."






4 19 9 "And a man [that is] clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay [them] up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of separation: it [is] a purification for sin."






4 19 10 "And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever."






4 19 11 He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days.






4 19 12 "He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean."






4 19 13 "Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; his uncleanness [is] yet upon him."






4 19 14 "This [is] the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come into the tent, and all that [is] in the tent, shall be unclean seven days."






4 19 15 "And every open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, [is] unclean."






4 19 16 "And whosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days."






4 19 17 "And for an unclean [person] they shall take of the ashes of the burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water shall be put thereto in a vessel:"






4 19 18 "And a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip [it] in the water, and sprinkle [it] upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave:"






4 19 19 "And the clean [person] shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the third day, and on the seventh day: and on the seventh day he shall purify himself, and wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean at even."






4 19 20 "But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because he hath defiled the sanctuary of the LORD: the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon him; he [is] unclean."






4 19 21 "And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and he that toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean until even."






4 19 22 And whatsoever the unclean [person] toucheth shall be unclean; and the soul that toucheth [it] shall be unclean until even.






4 20 1 "Then came the children of Israel, [even] the whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there."






4 20 2 And there was no water for the congregation: and they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron.






4 20 3 "And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the LORD!"






4 20 4 "And why have ye brought up the congregation of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there?"






4 20 5 "And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it [is] no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither [is] there any water to drink."






4 20 6 "And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them."






4 20 7 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 20 8 "Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink."






4 20 9 "And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him."






4 20 10 "And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?"






4 20 11 "And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts [also]."






4 20 12 "And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them."

4 21 7 "Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people."






4 21 8 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live."






4 21 9 "And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."






4 21 10 "And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth."






4 21 11 "And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the wilderness which [is] before Moab, toward the sunrising."






4 21 12 "From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared."






4 21 13 "From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which [is] in the wilderness that cometh out of the coasts of the Amorites: for Arnon [is] the border of Moab, between Moab and the Amorites."






4 21 14 "Wherefore it is said in the book of the wars of the LORD, What he did in the Red sea, and in the brooks of Arnon,"






4 21 15 "And at the stream of the brooks that goeth down to the dwelling of Ar, and lieth upon the border of Moab."






4 21 16 "And from thence [they went] to Beer: that [is] the well whereof the LORD spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water."






4 21 17 "Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it:"






4 21 18 "The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged it, by [the direction of] the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the wilderness [they went] to Mattanah:"






4 21 19 And from Mattanah to Nahaliel: and from Nahaliel to Bamoth:






4 21 20 "And from Bamoth [in] the valley, that [is] in the country of Moab, to the top of Pisgah, which looketh toward Jeshimon."






4 21 21 "And Israel sent messengers unto Sihon king of the Amorites, saying,"






4 21 22 "Let me pass through thy land: we will not turn into the fields, or into the vineyards; we will not drink [of] the waters of the well: [but] we will go along by the king's [high] way, until we be past thy borders."






4 21 23 "And Sihon would not suffer Israel to pass through his border: but Sihon gathered all his people together, and went out against Israel into the wilderness: and he came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel."






4 21 24 "And Israel smote him with the edge of the sword, and possessed his land from Arnon unto Jabbok, even unto the children of Ammon: for the border of the children of Ammon [was] strong."






4 21 25 "And Israel took all these cities: and Israel dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all the villages thereof."






4 21 26 "For Heshbon [was] the city of Sihon the king of the Amorites, who had fought against the former king of Moab, and taken all his land out of his hand, even unto Arnon."






4 21 27 "Wherefore they that speak in proverbs say, Come into Heshbon, let the city of Sihon be built and prepared:"






4 21 28 "For there is a fire gone out of Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon: it hath consumed Ar of Moab, [and] the lords of the high places of Arnon."






4 21 29 "Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites."






4 21 30 "We have shot at them; Heshbon is perished even unto Dibon, and we have laid them waste even unto Nophah, which [reacheth] unto Medeba."






4 21 31 Thus Israel dwelt in the land of the Amorites.






4 21 32 "And Moses sent to spy out Jaazer, and they took the villages thereof, and drove out the Amorites that [were] there."






4 21 33 "And they turned and went up by the way of Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan went out against them, he, and all his people, to the battle at Edrei."






4 21 34 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon."






4 21 35 "So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land."






4 22 1 "And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan [by] Jericho."






4 22 2 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites.






4 22 3 "And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they [were] many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel."






4 22 4 "And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all [that are] round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor [was] king of the Moabites at that time."






4 22 5 "He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which [is] by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:"






4 22 6 "Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they [are] too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, [that] we may smite them, and [that] I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest [is] blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed."






4 22 7 "And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak."






4 22 8 "And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam."






4 22 9 "And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men [are] these with thee?"






4 22 10 "And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath sent unto me, [saying],"






4 22 11 "Behold, [there is] a people come out of Egypt, which covereth the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out."






4 22 12 "And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they [are] blessed."






4 22 13 "And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak, Get you into your land: for the LORD refuseth to give me leave to go with you."






4 22 14 "And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and said, Balaam refuseth to come with us."






4 22 15 "And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable than they."






4 22 16 "And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me:"






4 22 17 "For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people."






4 22 18 "And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more."






4 22 19 "Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more."






4 22 20 "And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, [and] go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do."






4 22 21 "And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab."






4 22 22 "And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants [were] with him."






4 22 23 "And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way."






4 22 24 "But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall [being] on this side, and a wall on that side."






4 22 25 "And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again."






4 22 26 "And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where [was] no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left."






4 22 27 "And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff."






4 22 28 "And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?"






4 22 29 "And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee."






4 22 30 "And the ass said unto Balaam, [Am] not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since [I was] thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay."






4 22 31 "Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face."






4 22 32 "And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because [thy] way is perverse before me:"






4 22 33 "And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive."






4 22 34 "And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again."






4 22 35 "And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak."






4 22 36 "And when Balak heard that Balaam was come, he went out to meet him unto a city of Moab, which [is] in the border of Arnon, which [is] in the utmost coast."






4 22 37 "And Balak said unto Balaam, Did I not earnestly send unto thee to call thee? wherefore camest thou not unto me? am I not able indeed to promote thee to honour?"






4 22 38 "And Balaam said unto Balak, Lo, I am come unto thee: have I now any power at all to say any thing? the word that God putteth in my mouth, that shall I speak."






4 22 39 "And Balaam went with Balak, and they came unto Kirjathhuzoth."






4 22 40 "And Balak offered oxen and sheep, and sent to Balaam, and to the princes that [were] with him."






4 22 41 "And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost [part] of the people."






4 23 1 "And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams."






4 23 2 And Balak did as Balaam had spoken; and Balak and Balaam offered on [every] altar a bullock and a ram.






4 23 3 "And Balaam said unto Balak, Stand by thy burnt offering, and I will go: peradventure the LORD will come to meet me: and whatsoever he sheweth me I will tell thee. And he went to an high place."






4 23 4 "And God met Balaam: and he said unto him, I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered upon [every] altar a bullock and a ram."






4 23 5 "And the LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak."






4 23 6 "And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab."






4 23 7 "And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, [saying], Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel."






4 23 8 "How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, [whom] the LORD hath not defied?"






4 23 9 "For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations."






4 23 10 "Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth [part] of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!"






4 23 11 "And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed [them] altogether."






4 23 12 "And he answered and said, Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth?"






4 23 13 "And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence."






4 23 14 "And he brought him into the field of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullock and a ram on [every] altar."






4 23 15 "And he said unto Balak, Stand here by thy burnt offering, while I meet [the LORD] yonder."






4 23 16 "And the LORD met Balaam, and put a word in his mouth, and said, Go again unto Balak, and say thus."






4 23 17 "And when he came to him, behold, he stood by his burnt offering, and the princes of Moab with him. And Balak said unto him, What hath the LORD spoken?"






4 23 18 "And he took up his parable, and said, Rise up, Balak, and hear; hearken unto me, thou son of Zippor:"






4 23 19 "God [is] not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do [it]? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?"






4 23 20 "Behold, I have received [commandment] to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it."






4 23 21 "He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God [is] with him, and the shout of a king [is] among them."






4 23 22 God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.






4 23 23 "Surely [there is] no enchantment against Jacob, neither [is there] any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!"






4 23 24 "Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat [of] the prey, and drink the blood of the slain."






4 23 25 "And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all."






4 23 26 "But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?"






4 23 27 "And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou mayest curse me them from thence."






4 23 28 "And Balak brought Balaam unto the top of Peor, that looketh toward Jeshimon."






4 23 29 "And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars, and prepare me here seven bullocks and seven rams."






4 23 30 "And Balak did as Balaam had said, and offered a bullock and a ram on [every] altar."






4 24 1 "And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness."






4 24 2 "And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding [in his tents] according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him."






4 24 3 "And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:"






4 24 4 "He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:"






4 24 5 "How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, [and] thy tabernacles, O Israel!"






4 24 6 "As the valleys are they spread forth, as gardens by the river's side, as the trees of lign aloes which the LORD hath planted, [and] as cedar trees beside the waters."






4 24 7 "He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed [shall be] in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted."






4 24 8 "God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce [them] through with his arrows."






4 24 9 "He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed [is] he that blesseth thee, and cursed [is] he that curseth thee."






4 24 10 "And Balak's anger was kindled against Balaam, and he smote his hands together: and Balak said unto Balaam, I called thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast altogether blessed [them] these three times."






4 24 11 "Therefore now flee thou to thy place: I thought to promote thee unto great honour; but, lo, the LORD hath kept thee back from honour."






4 24 12 "And Balaam said unto Balak, Spake I not also to thy messengers which thou sentest unto me, saying,"






4 24 13 "If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the commandment of the LORD, to do [either] good or bad of mine own mind; [but] what the LORD saith, that will I speak?"






4 24 14 "And now, behold, I go unto my people: come [therefore, and] I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days."






4 24 15 "And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:"






4 24 16 "He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, [which] saw the vision of the Almighty, falling [into a trance], but having his eyes open:"






4 24 17 "I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth."






4 24 18 "And Edom shall be a possession, Seir also shall be a possession for his enemies; and Israel shall do valiantly."






4 24 19 "Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion, and shall destroy him that remaineth of the city."






4 24 20 "And when he looked on Amalek, he took up his parable, and said, Amalek [was] the first of the nations; but his latter end [shall be] that he perish for ever."






4 24 21 "And he looked on the Kenites, and took up his parable, and said, Strong is thy dwellingplace, and thou puttest thy nest in a rock."






4 24 22 "Nevertheless the Kenite shall be wasted, until Asshur shall carry thee away captive."






4 24 23 "And he took up his parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God doeth this!"






4 24 24 "And ships [shall come] from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber, and he also shall perish for ever."






4 24 25 "And Balaam rose up, and went and returned to his place: and Balak also went his way."






4 25 1 "And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab."






4 25 2 "And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods."






4 25 3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.






4 25 4 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel."






4 25 5 "And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor."






4 25 6 "And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who [were] weeping [before] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation."






4 25 7 "And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw [it], he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;"






4 25 8 "And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel."






4 25 9 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.






4 25 10 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 25 11 "Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy."






4 25 12 "Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace:"






4 25 13 "And he shall have it, and his seed after him, [even] the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel."






4 25 14 "Now the name of the Israelite that was slain, [even] that was slain with the Midianitish woman, [was] Zimri, the son of Salu, a prince of a chief house among the Simeonites."






4 25 15 "And the name of the Midianitish woman that was slain [was] Cozbi, the daughter of Zur; he [was] head over a people, [and] of a chief house in Midian."






4 25 16 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 25 17 "Vex the Midianites, and smite them:"






4 25 18 "For they vex you with their wiles, wherewith they have beguiled you in the matter of Peor, and in the matter of Cozbi, the daughter of a prince of Midian, their sister, which was slain in the day of the plague for Peor's sake."






4 26 1 "And it came to pass after the plague, that the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying,"






4 26 2 "Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from twenty years old and upward, throughout their fathers' house, all that are able to go to war in Israel."






4 26 3 "And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho, saying,"






4 26 4 "[Take the sum of the people], from twenty years old and upward; as the LORD commanded Moses and the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt."






4 26 5 "Reuben, the eldest son of Israel: the children of Reuben; Hanoch, [of whom cometh] the family of the Hanochites: of Pallu, the family of the Palluites:"






4 26 6 "Of Hezron, the family of the Hezronites: of Carmi, the family of the Carmites."






4 26 7 These [are] the families of the Reubenites: and they that were numbered of them were forty and three thousand and seven hundred and thirty.






4 26 8 And the sons of Pallu; Eliab.






4 26 9 "And the sons of Eliab; Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. This [is that] Dathan and Abiram, [which were] famous in the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against the LORD:"






4 26 10 "And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died, what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men: and they became a sign."






4 26 11 Notwithstanding the children of Korah died not.

4 26 51 "These [were] the numbered of the children of Israel, six hundred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty."






4 26 52 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 26 53 Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names.






4 26 54 "To many thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to few thou shalt give the less inheritance: to every one shall his inheritance be given according to those that were numbered of him."






4 26 55 Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit.






4 26 56 According to the lot shall the possession thereof be divided between many and few.






4 26 57 "And these [are] they that were numbered of the Levites after their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites: of Kohath, the family of the Kohathites: of Merari, the family of the Merarites."

4 26 61 "And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD."






4 26 62 "And those that were numbered of them were twenty and three thousand, all males from a month old and upward: for they were not numbered among the children of Israel, because there was no inheritance given them among the children of Israel."






4 26 63 "These [are] they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho."






4 26 64 "But among these there was not a man of them whom Moses and Aaron the priest numbered, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai."






4 26 65 "For the LORD had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun."






4 27 1 "Then came the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph: and these [are] the names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah."






4 27 2 "And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, [by] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,"






4 27 3 "Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the company of them that gathered themselves together against the LORD in the company of Korah; but died in his own sin, and had no sons."






4 27 4 "Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he hath no son? Give unto us [therefore] a possession among the brethren of our father."






4 27 5 And Moses brought their cause before the LORD.






4 27 6 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 27 7 The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them.






4 27 8 "And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter."






4 27 9 "And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren."






4 27 10 "And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren."






4 27 11 "And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute of judgment, as the LORD commanded Moses."






4 27 12 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel."






4 27 13 "And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered."






4 27 14 "For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that [is] the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin."






4 27 15 "And Moses spake unto the LORD, saying,"






4 27 16 "Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,"






4 27 17 "Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the LORD be not as sheep which have no shepherd."






4 27 18 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom [is] the spirit, and lay thine hand upon him;"






4 27 19 "And set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight."






4 27 20 "And thou shalt put [some] of thine honour upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient."






4 27 21 "And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask [counsel] for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, [both] he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation."






4 27 22 "And Moses did as the LORD commanded him: and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation:"






4 27 23 "And he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses."






4 28 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 28 2 "Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, [and] my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, [for] a sweet savour unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in their due season."






4 28 3 "And thou shalt say unto them, This [is] the offering made by fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the first year without spot day by day, [for] a continual burnt offering."






4 28 4 "The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at even;"






4 28 5 "And a tenth [part] of an ephah of flour for a meat offering, mingled with the fourth [part] of an hin of beaten oil."






4 28 6 "[It is] a continual burnt offering, which was ordained in mount Sinai for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD."






4 28 7 And the drink offering thereof [shall be] the fourth [part] of an hin for the one lamb: in the holy [place] shalt thou cause the strong wine to be poured unto the LORD [for] a drink offering.






4 28 8 "And the other lamb shalt thou offer at even: as the meat offering of the morning, and as the drink offering thereof, thou shalt offer [it], a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."






4 28 9 "And on the sabbath day two lambs of the first year without spot, and two tenth deals of flour [for] a meat offering, mingled with oil, and the drink offering thereof:"






4 28 10 "[This is] the burnt offering of every sabbath, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering."






4 28 11 "And in the beginnings of your months ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, seven lambs of the first year without spot;"






4 28 12 "And three tenth deals of flour [for] a meat offering, mingled with oil, for one bullock; and two tenth deals of flour [for] a meat offering, mingled with oil, for one ram;"






4 28 13 "And a several tenth deal of flour mingled with oil [for] a meat offering unto one lamb; [for] a burnt offering of a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD."






4 28 14 "And their drink offerings shall be half an hin of wine unto a bullock, and the third [part] of an hin unto a ram, and a fourth [part] of an hin unto a lamb: this [is] the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year."






4 28 15 "And one kid of the goats for a sin offering unto the LORD shall be offered, beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering."






4 28 16 And in the fourteenth day of the first month [is] the passover of the LORD.






4 28 17 And in the fifteenth day of this month [is] the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.






4 28 18 In the first day [shall be] an holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work [therein]:






4 28 19 "But ye shall offer a sacrifice made by fire [for] a burnt offering unto the LORD; two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven lambs of the first year: they shall be unto you without blemish:"






4 28 20 "And their meat offering [shall be of] flour mingled with oil: three tenth deals shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram;"






4 28 21 "A several tenth deal shalt thou offer for every lamb, throughout the seven lambs:"






4 28 22 "And one goat [for] a sin offering, to make an atonement for you."






4 28 23 "Ye shall offer these beside the burnt offering in the morning, which [is] for a continual burnt offering."






4 28 24 "After this manner ye shall offer daily, throughout the seven days, the meat of the sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: it shall be offered beside the continual burnt offering, and his drink offering."






4 28 25 And on the seventh day ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work.






4 28 26 "Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat offering unto the LORD, after your weeks [be out], ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work:"






4 28 27 "But ye shall offer the burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; two young bullocks, one ram, seven lambs of the first year;"






4 28 28 "And their meat offering of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals unto one bullock, two tenth deals unto one ram,"

4 28 31 "Ye shall offer [them] beside the continual burnt offering, and his meat offering, (they shall be unto you without blemish) and their drink offerings."






4 29 1 "And in the seventh month, on the first [day] of the month, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing the trumpets unto you."






4 29 2 "And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; one young bullock, one ram, [and] seven lambs of the first year without blemish:"






4 29 3 "And their meat offering [shall be of] flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals for a bullock, [and] two tenth deals for a ram,"






4 29 4 "And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:"






4 29 5 "And one kid of the goats [for] a sin offering, to make an atonement for you:"






4 29 6 "Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD."






4 29 7 And ye shall have on the tenth [day] of this seventh month an holy convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any work [therein]:






4 29 8 "But ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD [for] a sweet savour; one young bullock, one ram, [and] seven lambs of the first year; they shall be unto you without blemish:"






4 29 9 "And their meat offering [shall be of] flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals to a bullock, [and] two tenth deals to one ram,"






4 29 10 "A several tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:"






4 29 11 "One kid of the goats [for] a sin offering; beside the sin offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering of it, and their drink offerings."






4 29 12 "And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work, and ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days:"

4 29 17 "And on the second day [ye shall offer] twelve young bullocks, two rams, fourteen lambs of the first year without spot:"






4 29 18 "And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, [shall be] according to their number, after the manner:"






4 29 19 "And one kid of the goats [for] a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering thereof, and their drink offerings."






4 29 20 "And on the third day eleven bullocks, two rams, fourteen lambs of the first year without blemish;"






4 29 21 "And their meat offering and their drink offerings for the bullocks, for the rams, and for the lambs, [shall be] according to their number, after the manner:"






4 29 22 "And one goat [for] a sin offering; beside the continual burnt offering, and his meat offering, and his drink offering."

4 29 35 On the eighth day ye shall have a solemn assembly: ye shall do no servile work [therein]:






4 29 36 "But ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: one bullock, one ram, seven lambs of the first year without blemish:"






4 29 37 "Their meat offering and their drink offerings for the bullock, for the ram, and for the lambs, [shall be] according to their number, after the manner:"

4 29 39 "These [things] ye shall do unto the LORD in your set feasts, beside your vows, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings, and for your meat offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your peace offerings."






4 29 40 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that the LORD commanded Moses.






4 30 1 "And Moses spake unto the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, This [is] the thing which the LORD hath commanded."






4 30 2 "If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth."






4 30 3 "If a woman also vow a vow unto the LORD, and bind herself by a bond, [being] in her father's house in her youth;"






4 30 4 "And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand."






4 30 5 "But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and the LORD shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her."






4 30 6 "And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul;"






4 30 7 "And her husband heard [it,] and held his peace at her in the day that he heard [it]: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand."






4 30 8 "But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard [it]; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and the LORD shall forgive her."






4 30 9 "But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her."






4 30 10 "And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath;"






4 30 11 "And her husband heard [it], and held his peace at her, [and] disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand."






4 30 12 "But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard [them; then] whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her."






4 30 13 "Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void."






4 30 14 "But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which [are] upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard [them]."






4 30 15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard [them]; then he shall bear her iniquity.






4 30 16 "These [are] the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, [being yet] in her youth in her father's house."






4 31 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 31 2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.






4 31 3 "And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian."






4 31 4 "Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war."






4 31 5 "So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of [every] tribe, twelve thousand armed for war."






4 31 6 "And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of [every] tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand."






4 31 7 "And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males."






4 31 8 "And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; [namely], Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword."






4 31 9 "And the children of Israel took [all] the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods."






4 31 10 "And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire."






4 31 11 "And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, [both] of men and of beasts."






4 31 12 "And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which [are] by Jordan [near] Jericho."






4 31 13 "And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp."






4 31 14 "And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, [with] the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle."






4 31 15 "And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?"






4 31 16 "Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD."






4 31 17 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him."






4 31 18 "But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."






4 31 19 "And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify [both] yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day."






4 31 20 "And purify all [your] raiment, and all that is made of skins, and all work of goats' [hair], and all things made of wood."






4 31 21 "And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This [is] the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses;"






4 31 22 "Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,"






4 31 23 "Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make [it] go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make go through the water."






4 31 24 "And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterward ye shall come into the camp."






4 31 25 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 31 26 "Take the sum of the prey that was taken, [both] of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the congregation:"






4 31 27 "And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took the war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the congregation:"






4 31 28 "And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, [both] of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:"






4 31 29 "Take [it] of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, [for] an heave offering of the LORD."






4 31 30 "And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD."






4 31 31 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.






4 31 32 "And the booty, [being] the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,"






4 31 33 "And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,"






4 31 34 "And threescore and one thousand asses,"






4 31 35 "And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known man by lying with him."






4 31 36 "And the half, [which was] the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:"






4 31 37 And the LORD'S tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and fifteen.






4 31 38 And the beeves [were] thirty and six thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute [was] threescore and twelve.






4 31 39 And the asses [were] thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD'S tribute [was] threescore and one.






4 31 40 And the persons [were] sixteen thousand; of which the LORD'S tribute [was] thirty and two persons.






4 31 41 "And Moses gave the tribute, [which was] the LORD'S heave offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses."






4 31 42 "And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided from the men that warred,"






4 31 43 "(Now the half [that pertained unto] the congregation was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand [and] seven thousand and five hundred sheep,"






4 31 44 "And thirty and six thousand beeves,"






4 31 45 "And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,"






4 31 46 And sixteen thousand persons;)






4 31 47 "Even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion of fifty, [both] of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses."






4 31 48 "And the officers which [were] over thousands of the host, the captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses:"






4 31 49 "And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which [are] under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us."






4 31 50 "We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD, what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the LORD."






4 31 51 "And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, [even] all wrought jewels."






4 31 52 "And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the LORD, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels."






4 31 53 "([For] the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.)"






4 31 54 "And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tabernacle of the congregation, [for] a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD."






4 32 1 "Now the children of Reuben and the children of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Jazer, and the land of Gilead, that, behold, the place [was] a place for cattle;"






4 32 2 "The children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spake unto Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the congregation, saying,"






4 32 3 "Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon,"






4 32 4 "[Even] the country which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, [is] a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle:"






4 32 5 "Wherefore, said they, if we have found grace in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession, [and] bring us not over Jordan."






4 32 6 "And Moses said unto the children of Gad and to the children of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war, and shall ye sit here?"






4 32 7 And wherefore discourage ye the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them?






4 32 8 "Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadeshbarnea to see the land."






4 32 9 "For when they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the children of Israel, that they should not go into the land which the LORD had given them."






4 32 10 "And the LORD'S anger was kindled the same time, and he sware, saying,"






4 32 11 "Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me:"






4 32 12 "Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD."






4 32 13 "And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed."






4 32 14 "And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, an increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel."






4 32 15 "For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people."






4 32 16 "And they came near unto him, and said, We will build sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little ones:"






4 32 17 "But we ourselves will go ready armed before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land."






4 32 18 "We will not return unto our houses, until the children of Israel have inherited every man his inheritance."






4 32 19 "For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Jordan, or forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Jordan eastward."






4 32 20 "And Moses said unto them, If ye will do this thing, if ye will go armed before the LORD to war,"






4 32 21 "And will go all of you armed over Jordan before the LORD, until he hath driven out his enemies from before him,"






4 32 22 "And the land be subdued before the LORD: then afterward ye shall return, and be guiltless before the LORD, and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the LORD."






4 32 23 "But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out."






4 32 24 "Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your sheep; and do that which hath proceeded out of your mouth."






4 32 25 "And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spake unto Moses, saying, Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth."






4 32 26 "Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be there in the cities of Gilead:"






4 32 27 "But thy servants will pass over, every man armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my lord saith."






4 32 28 "So concerning them Moses commanded Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the chief fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel:"






4 32 29 "And Moses said unto them, If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben will pass with you over Jordan, every man armed to battle, before the LORD, and the land shall be subdued before you; then ye shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession:"






4 32 30 "But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan."






4 32 31 "And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben answered, saying, As the LORD hath said unto thy servants, so will we do."






4 32 32 "We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, that the possession of our inheritance on this side Jordan [may be] ours."






4 32 33 "And Moses gave unto them, [even] to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and unto half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, [even] the cities of the country round about."






4 32 34 "And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer,"






4 32 35 "And Atroth, Shophan, and Jaazer, and Jogbehah,"






4 32 36 "And Bethnimrah, and Bethharan, fenced cities: and folds for sheep."






4 32 37 "And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kirjathaim,"






4 32 38 "And Nebo, and Baalmeon, (their names being changed,) and Shibmah: and gave other names unto the cities which they builded."






4 32 39 "And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead, and took it, and dispossessed the Amorite which [was] in it."






4 32 40 And Moses gave Gilead unto Machir the son of Manasseh; and he dwelt therein.






4 32 41 "And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the small towns thereof, and called them Havothjair."






4 32 42 "And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and called it Nobah, after his own name."






4 33 1 "These [are] the journeys of the children of Israel, which went forth out of the land of Egypt with their armies under the hand of Moses and Aaron."






4 33 2 And Moses wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of the LORD: and these [are] their journeys according to their goings out.






4 33 3 "And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians."






4 33 4 "For the Egyptians buried all [their] firstborn, which the LORD had smitten among them: upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments."






4 33 5 "And the children of Israel removed from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth."






4 33 6 "And they departed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which [is] in the edge of the wilderness."






4 33 7 "And they removed from Etham, and turned again unto Pihahiroth, which [is] before Baalzephon: and they pitched before Migdol."






4 33 8 "And they departed from before Pihahiroth, and passed through the midst of the sea into the wilderness, and went three days' journey in the wilderness of Etham, and pitched in Marah."






4 33 9 "And they removed from Marah, and came unto Elim: and in Elim [were] twelve fountains of water, and threescore and ten palm trees; and they pitched there."






4 33 10 "And they removed from Elim, and encamped by the Red sea."






4 33 11 "And they removed from the Red sea, and encamped in the wilderness of Sin."






4 33 12 "And they took their journey out of the wilderness of Sin, and encamped in Dophkah."






4 33 13 "And they departed from Dophkah, and encamped in Alush."






4 33 14 "And they removed from Alush, and encamped at Rephidim, where was no water for the people to drink."






4 33 15 "And they departed from Rephidim, and pitched in the wilderness of Sinai."






4 33 16 "And they removed from the desert of Sinai, and pitched at Kibrothhattaavah."






4 33 17 "And they departed from Kibrothhattaavah, and encamped at Hazeroth."






4 33 18 "And they departed from Hazeroth, and pitched in Rithmah."






4 33 19 "And they departed from Rithmah, and pitched at Rimmonparez."






4 33 20 "And they departed from Rimmonparez, and pitched in Libnah."






4 33 21 "And they removed from Libnah, and pitched at Rissah."






4 33 22 "And they journeyed from Rissah, and pitched in Kehelathah."






4 33 23 "And they went from Kehelathah, and pitched in mount Shapher."






4 33 24 "And they removed from mount Shapher, and encamped in Haradah."






4 33 25 "And they removed from Haradah, and pitched in Makheloth."






4 33 26 "And they removed from Makheloth, and encamped at Tahath."






4 33 27 "And they departed from Tahath, and pitched at Tarah."






4 33 28 "And they removed from Tarah, and pitched in Mithcah."






4 33 29 "And they went from Mithcah, and pitched in Hashmonah."






4 33 30 "And they departed from Hashmonah, and encamped at Moseroth."






4 33 31 "And they departed from Moseroth, and pitched in Benejaakan."






4 33 32 "And they removed from Benejaakan, and encamped at Horhagidgad."






4 33 33 "And they went from Horhagidgad, and pitched in Jotbathah."






4 33 34 "And they removed from Jotbathah, and encamped at Ebronah."






4 33 35 "And they departed from Ebronah, and encamped at Eziongaber."






4 33 36 "And they removed from Eziongaber, and pitched in the wilderness of Zin, which [is] Kadesh."






4 33 37 "And they removed from Kadesh, and pitched in mount Hor, in the edge of the land of Edom."






4 33 38 "And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the first [day] of the fifth month."






4 33 39 And Aaron [was] an hundred and twenty and three years old when he died in mount Hor.






4 33 40 "And king Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children of Israel."






4 33 41 "And they departed from mount Hor, and pitched in Zalmonah."






4 33 42 "And they departed from Zalmonah, and pitched in Punon."






4 33 43 "And they departed from Punon, and pitched in Oboth."






4 33 44 "And they departed from Oboth, and pitched in Ijeabarim, in the border of Moab."






4 33 45 "And they departed from Iim, and pitched in Dibongad."






4 33 46 "And they removed from Dibongad, and encamped in Almondiblathaim."






4 33 47 "And they removed from Almondiblathaim, and pitched in the mountains of Abarim, before Nebo."






4 33 48 "And they departed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho."






4 33 49 "And they pitched by Jordan, from Bethjesimoth [even] unto Abelshittim in the plains of Moab."






4 33 50 "And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho, saying,"






4 33 51 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan;"






4 33 52 "Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places:"






4 33 53 "And ye shall dispossess [the inhabitants] of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it."






4 33 54 "And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: [and] to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man's [inheritance] shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit."






4 33 55 "But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them [shall be] pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell."






4 33 56 "Moreover it shall come to pass, [that] I shall do unto you, as I thought to do unto them."






4 34 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 34 2 "Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land of Canaan; (this [is] the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, [even] the land of Canaan with the coasts thereof:)"






4 34 3 "Then your south quarter shall be from the wilderness of Zin along by the coast of Edom, and your south border shall be the outmost coast of the salt sea eastward:"






4 34 4 "And your border shall turn from the south to the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass on to Zin: and the going forth thereof shall be from the south to Kadeshbarnea, and shall go on to Hazaraddar, and pass on to Azmon:"






4 34 5 "And the border shall fetch a compass from Azmon unto the river of Egypt, and the goings out of it shall be at the sea."






4 34 6 "And [as for] the western border, ye shall even have the great sea for a border: this shall be your west border."






4 34 7 And this shall be your north border: from the great sea ye shall point out for you mount Hor:






4 34 8 From mount Hor ye shall point out [your border] unto the entrance of Hamath; and the goings forth of the border shall be to Zedad:






4 34 9 "And the border shall go on to Ziphron, and the goings out of it shall be at Hazarenan: this shall be your north border."






4 34 10 And ye shall point out your east border from Hazarenan to Shepham:






4 34 11 "And the coast shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall descend, and shall reach unto the side of the sea of Chinnereth eastward:"






4 34 12 "And the border shall go down to Jordan, and the goings out of it shall be at the salt sea: this shall be your land with the coasts thereof round about."






4 34 13 "And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying, This [is] the land which ye shall inherit by lot, which the LORD commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half tribe:"






4 34 14 "For the tribe of the children of Reuben according to the house of their fathers, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to the house of their fathers, have received [their inheritance]; and half the tribe of Manasseh have received their inheritance:"






4 34 15 "The two tribes and the half tribe have received their inheritance on this side Jordan [near] Jericho eastward, toward the sunrising."






4 34 16 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 34 17 "These [are] the names of the men which shall divide the land unto you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun."






4 34 18 "And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to divide the land by inheritance."






4 34 19 "And the names of the men [are] these: Of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh."






4 34 20 "And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud."






4 34 21 "Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon."






4 34 22 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli."






4 34 23 "The prince of the children of Joseph, for the tribe of the children of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod."






4 34 24 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan."






4 34 25 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach."






4 34 26 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan."






4 34 27 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi."






4 34 28 "And the prince of the tribe of the children of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud."






4 34 29 These [are they] whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.






4 35 1 "And the LORD spake unto Moses in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho, saying,"






4 35 2 "Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and ye shall give [also] unto the Levites suburbs for the cities round about them."






4 35 3 "And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and the suburbs of them shall be for their cattle, and for their goods, and for all their beasts."






4 35 4 "And the suburbs of the cities, which ye shall give unto the Levites, [shall reach] from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round about."






4 35 5 "And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits, and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand cubits; and the city [shall be] in the midst: this shall be to them the suburbs of the cities."






4 35 6 "And among the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites [there shall be] six cities for refuge, which ye shall appoint for the manslayer, that he may flee thither: and to them ye shall add forty and two cities."






4 35 7 [So] all the cities which ye shall give to the Levites [shall be] forty and eight cities: them [shall ye give] with their suburbs.






4 35 8 And the cities which ye shall give [shall be] of the possession of the children of Israel: from [them that have] many ye shall give many; but from [them that have] few ye shall give few: every one shall give of his cities unto the Levites according to his inheritance which he inheriteth.






4 35 9 "And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,"






4 35 10 "Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come over Jordan into the land of Canaan;"






4 35 11 "Then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you; that the slayer may flee thither, which killeth any person at unawares."






4 35 12 "And they shall be unto you cities for refuge from the avenger; that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment."






4 35 13 And of these cities which ye shall give six cities shall ye have for refuge.






4 35 14 "Ye shall give three cities on this side Jordan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan, [which] shall be cities of refuge."






4 35 15 "These six cities shall be a refuge, [both] for the children of Israel, and for the stranger, and for the sojourner among them: that every one that killeth any person unawares may flee thither."






4 35 16 "And if he smite him with an instrument of iron, so that he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death."






4 35 17 "And if he smite him with throwing a stone, wherewith he may die, and he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death."






4 35 18 "Or [if] he smite him with an hand weapon of wood, wherewith he may die, and he die, he [is] a murderer: the murderer shall surely be put to death."






4 35 19 "The revenger of blood himself shall slay the murderer: when he meeteth him, he shall slay him."






4 35 20 "But if he thrust him of hatred, or hurl at him by laying of wait, that he die;"






4 35 21 "Or in enmity smite him with his hand, that he die: he that smote [him] shall surely be put to death; [for] he [is] a murderer: the revenger of blood shall slay the murderer, when he meeteth him."






4 35 22 "But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or have cast upon him any thing without laying of wait,"






4 35 23 "Or with any stone, wherewith a man may die, seeing [him] not, and cast [it] upon him, that he die, and [was] not his enemy, neither sought his harm:"






4 35 24 Then the congregation shall judge between the slayer and the revenger of blood according to these judgments:






4 35 25 "And the congregation shall deliver the slayer out of the hand of the revenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest, which was anointed with the holy oil."






4 35 26 "But if the slayer shall at any time come without the border of the city of his refuge, whither he was fled;"






4 35 27 "And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood:"






4 35 28 Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his possession.






4 35 29 So these [things] shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.






4 35 30 "Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person [to cause him] to die."






4 35 31 "Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which [is] guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death."






4 35 32 "And ye shall take no satisfaction for him that is fled to the city of his refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest."






4 35 33 "So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye [are]: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it."






4 35 34 "Defile not therefore the land which ye shall inhabit, wherein I dwell: for I the LORD dwell among the children of Israel."






4 36 1 "And the chief fathers 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 near, and spake before Moses, and before the princes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel:"






4 36 2 "And they said, The LORD commanded my lord to give the land for an inheritance by lot to the children of Israel: and my lord was commanded by the LORD to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother unto his daughters."






4 36 3 "And if they be married to any of the sons of the [other] tribes of the children of Israel, then shall their inheritance be taken from the inheritance of our fathers, and shall be put to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall it be taken from the lot of our inheritance."






4 36 4 "And when the jubile of the children of Israel shall be, then shall their inheritance be put unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they are received: so shall their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers."






4 36 5 "And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the LORD, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath said well."






4 36 6 "This [is] the thing which the LORD doth command concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying, Let them marry to whom they think best; only to the family of the tribe of their father shall they marry."






4 36 7 So shall not the inheritance of the children of Israel remove from tribe to tribe: for every one of the children of Israel shall keep himself to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.






4 36 8 "And every daughter, that possesseth an inheritance in any tribe of the children of Israel, shall be wife unto one of the family of the tribe of her father, that the children of Israel may enjoy every man the inheritance of his fathers."






4 36 9 Neither shall the inheritance remove from [one] tribe to another tribe; but every one of the tribes of the children of Israel shall keep himself to his own inheritance.






4 36 10 "Even as the LORD commanded Moses, so did the daughters of Zelophehad:"






4 36 11 "For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelophehad, were married unto their father's brothers' sons:"






4 36 12 "[And] they were married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained in the tribe of the family of their father."






4 36 13 "These [are] the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan [near] Jericho."

5 1 1 "These [be] the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red [sea], between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth, and Dizahab."






5 1 2 ([There are] eleven days' [journey] from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadeshbarnea.)






5 1 3 "And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first [day] of the month, [that] Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them;"






5 1 4 "After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:"






5 1 5 "On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare this law, saying,"






5 1 6 "The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount:"






5 1 7 "Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites, and unto all [the places] nigh thereunto, in the plain, in the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river, the river Euphrates."






5 1 8 "Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them."






5 1 9 "And I spake unto you at that time, saying, I am not able to bear you myself alone:"






5 1 10 "The LORD your God hath multiplied you, and, behold, ye [are] this day as the stars of heaven for multitude."






5 1 11 "(The LORD God of your fathers make you a thousand times so many more as ye [are], and bless you, as he hath promised you!)"






5 1 12 "How can I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your strife?"






5 1 13 "Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you."






5 1 14 "And ye answered me, and said, The thing which thou hast spoken [is] good [for us] to do."






5 1 15 "So I took the chief of your tribes, wise men, and known, and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes."






5 1 16 "And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear [the causes] between your brethren, and judge righteously between [every] man and his brother, and the stranger [that is] with him."






5 1 17 "Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; [but] ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment [is] God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring [it] unto me, and I will hear it."






5 1 18 And I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.






5 1 19 "And when we departed from Horeb, we went through all that great and terrible wilderness, which ye saw by the way of the mountain of the Amorites, as the LORD our God commanded us; and we came to Kadeshbarnea."






5 1 20 "And I said unto you, Ye are come unto the mountain of the Amorites, which the LORD our God doth give unto us."






5 1 21 "Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up [and] possess [it], as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged."






5 1 22 "And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come."






5 1 23 "And the saying pleased me well: and I took twelve men of you, one of a tribe:"






5 1 24 "And they turned and went up into the mountain, and came unto the valley of Eshcol, and searched it out."






5 1 25 "And they took of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought [it] down unto us, and brought us word again, and said, [It is] a good land which the LORD our God doth give us."






5 1 26 "Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God:"






5 1 27 "And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us."






5 1 28 "Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people [is] greater and taller than we; the cities [are] great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there."






5 1 29 "Then I said unto you, Dread not, neither be afraid of them."






5 1 30 "The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;"






5 1 31 "And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place."






5 1 32 "Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,"






5 1 33 "Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents [in], in fire by night, to shew you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day."






5 1 34 "And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying,"






5 1 35 "Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers,"






5 1 36 "Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD."






5 1 37 "Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither."






5 1 38 "[But] Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it."






5 1 39 "Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it."






5 1 40 "But [as for] you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea."






5 1 41 "Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill."






5 1 42 "And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I [am] not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies."






5 1 43 "So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill."






5 1 44 "And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, [even] unto Hormah."






5 1 45 "And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you."






5 1 46 "So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that ye abode [there]."






5 2 1 "Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the LORD spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days."






5 2 2 "And the LORD spake unto me, saying,"






5 2 3 Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.






5 2 4 "And command thou the people, saying, Ye [are] to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:"






5 2 5 "Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau [for] a possession."






5 2 6 "Ye shall buy meat of them for money, that ye may eat; and ye shall also buy water of them for money, that ye may drink."






5 2 7 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God [hath been] with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.






5 2 8 "And when we passed by from our brethren the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, through the way of the plain from Elath, and from Eziongaber, we turned and passed by the way of the wilderness of Moab."






5 2 9 "And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land [for] a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot [for] a possession."






5 2 10 "The Emims dwelt therein in times past, a people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims;"






5 2 11 "Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims."






5 2 12 "The Horims also dwelt in Seir beforetime; but the children of Esau succeeded them, when they had destroyed them from before them, and dwelt in their stead; as Israel did unto the land of his possession, which the LORD gave unto them."






5 2 13 "Now rise up, [said I], and get you over the brook Zered. And we went over the brook Zered."






5 2 14 "And the space in which we came from Kadeshbarnea, until we were come over the brook Zered, [was] thirty and eight years; until all the generation of the men of war were wasted out from among the host, as the LORD sware unto them."






5 2 15 "For indeed the hand of the LORD was against them, to destroy them from among the host, until they were consumed."






5 2 16 "So it came to pass, when all the men of war were consumed and dead from among the people,"






5 2 17 "That the LORD spake unto me, saying,"






5 2 18 "Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:"






5 2 19 "And [when] thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon [any] possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot [for] a possession."






5 2 20 (That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;






5 2 21 "A people great, and many, and tall, as the Anakims; but the LORD destroyed them before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead:"






5 2 22 "As he did to the children of Esau, which dwelt in Seir, when he destroyed the Horims from before them; and they succeeded them, and dwelt in their stead even unto this day:"






5 2 23 "And the Avims which dwelt in Hazerim, [even] unto Azzah, the Caphtorims, which came forth out of Caphtor, destroyed them, and dwelt in their stead.)"






5 2 24 "Rise ye up, take your journey, and pass over the river Arnon: behold, I have given into thine hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land: begin to possess [it], and contend with him in battle."






5 2 25 "This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations [that are] under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and be in anguish because of thee."






5 2 26 "And I sent messengers out of the wilderness of Kedemoth unto Sihon king of Heshbon with words of peace, saying,"






5 2 27 "Let me pass through thy land: I will go along by the high way, I will neither turn unto the right hand nor to the left."






5 2 28 "Thou shalt sell me meat for money, that I may eat; and give me water for money, that I may drink: only I will pass through on my feet;"






5 2 29 "(As the children of Esau which dwell in Seir, and the Moabites which dwell in Ar, did unto me;) until I shall pass over Jordan into the land which the LORD our God giveth us."






5 2 30 "But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as [appeareth] this day."






5 2 31 "And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit his land."






5 2 32 "Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz."






5 2 33 "And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people."






5 2 34 "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:"






5 2 35 "Only the cattle we took for a prey unto ourselves, and the spoil of the cities which we took."






5 2 36 "From Aroer, which [is] by the brink of the river of Arnon, and [from] the city that [is] by the river, even unto Gilead, there was not one city too strong for us: the LORD our God delivered all unto us:"






5 2 37 "Only unto the land of the children of Ammon thou camest not, [nor] unto any place of the river Jabbok, nor unto the cities in the mountains, nor unto whatsoever the LORD our God forbad us."






5 3 1 "Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei."






5 3 2 "And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon."






5 3 3 "So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining."






5 3 4 "And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan."






5 3 5 "All these cities [were] fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many."






5 3 6 "And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city."






5 3 7 "But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves."






5 3 8 "And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that [was] on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon;"






5 3 9 ([Which] Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)






5 3 10 "All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan."






5 3 11 "For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead [was] a bedstead of iron; [is] it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits [was] the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man."






5 3 12 "And this land, [which] we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which [is] by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites."






5 3 13 "And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, [being] the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants."






5 3 14 "Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day."






5 3 15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir.






5 3 16 "And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even unto the river Jabbok, [which is] the border of the children of Ammon;"






5 3 17 "The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast [thereof], from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, [even] the salt sea, under Ashdothpisgah eastward."






5 3 18 "And I commanded you at that time, saying, The LORD your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all [that are] meet for the war."






5 3 19 "But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, ([for] I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;"






5 3 20 "Until the LORD have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and [until] they also possess the land which the LORD your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and [then] shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you."






5 3 21 "And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest."






5 3 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you.






5 3 23 "And I besought the LORD at that time, saying,"






5 3 24 "O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God [is there] in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?"






5 3 25 "I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that [is] beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon."

5 6 13 "Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name."






5 6 14 "Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which [are] round about you;"






5 6 15 "(For the LORD thy God [is] a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth."






5 6 16 "Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted [him] in Massah."






5 6 17 "Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee."






5 6 18 "And thou shalt do [that which is] right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,"






5 6 19 "To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken."






5 6 20 "[And] when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What [mean] the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?"






5 6 21 "Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:"






5 6 22 "And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:"






5 6 23 "And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers."






5 6 24 "And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as [it is] at this day."






5 6 25 "And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us."






5 7 1 "When the LORD thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;"






5 7 2 "And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, [and] utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:"






5 7 3 "Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son."






5 7 4 "For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly."






5 7 5 "But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire."






5 7 6 "For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that [are] upon the face of the earth."






5 7 7 "The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye [were] the fewest of all people:"






5 7 8 "But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt."






5 7 9 "Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he [is] God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;"






5 7 10 "And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face."






5 7 11 "Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them."






5 7 12 "Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:"






5 7 13 "And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee."






5 7 14 "Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle."






5 7 15 "And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all [them] that hate thee."






5 7 16 And thou shalt consume all the people which the LORD thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that [will be] a snare unto thee.






5 7 17 "If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations [are] more than I; how can I dispossess them?"






5 7 18 "Thou shalt not be afraid of them: [but] shalt well remember what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;"






5 7 19 "The great temptations which thine eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the mighty hand, and the stretched out arm, whereby the LORD thy God brought thee out: so shall the LORD thy God do unto all the people of whom thou art afraid."






5 7 20 "Moreover the LORD thy God will send the hornet among them, until they that are left, and hide themselves from thee, be destroyed."






5 7 21 "Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God [is] among you, a mighty God and terrible."






5 7 22 "And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee."






5 7 23 "But the LORD thy God shall deliver them unto thee, and shall destroy them with a mighty destruction, until they be destroyed."






5 7 24 "And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven: there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them."






5 7 25 "The graven images of their gods shall ye burn with fire: thou shalt not desire the silver or gold [that is] on them, nor take [it] unto thee, lest thou be snared therein: for it [is] an abomination to the LORD thy God."






5 7 26 "Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: [but] thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it [is] a cursed thing."






5 8 1 "All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers."






5 8 2 "And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, [and] to prove thee, to know what [was] in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no."






5 8 3 "And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live."






5 8 4 "Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years."






5 8 5 "Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, [so] the LORD thy God chasteneth thee."






5 8 6 "Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him."






5 8 7 "For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;"






5 8 8 "A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;"






5 8 9 "A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any [thing] in it; a land whose stones [are] iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass."






5 8 10 "When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the LORD thy God for the good land which he hath given thee."






5 8 11 "Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:"






5 8 12 "Lest [when] thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt [therein];"






5 8 13 "And [when] thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;"






5 8 14 "Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;"






5 8 15 "Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, [wherein were] fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where [there was] no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;"






5 8 16 "Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;"






5 8 17 "And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of [mine] hand hath gotten me this wealth."






5 8 18 "But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for [it is] he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as [it is] this day."






5 8 19 "And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish."






5 8 20 "As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God."






5 9 1 "Hear, O Israel: Thou [art] to pass over Jordan this day, to go in to possess nations greater and mightier than thyself, cities great and fenced up to heaven,"






5 9 2 "A people great and tall, the children of the Anakims, whom thou knowest, and [of whom] thou hast heard [say], Who can stand before the children of Anak!"






5 9 3 "Understand therefore this day, that the LORD thy God [is] he which goeth over before thee; [as] a consuming fire he shall destroy them, and he shall bring them down before thy face: so shalt thou drive them out, and destroy them quickly, as the LORD hath said unto thee."






5 9 4 "Speak not thou in thine heart, after that the LORD thy God hath cast them out from before thee, saying, For my righteousness the LORD hath brought me in to possess this land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD doth drive them out from before thee."






5 9 5 "Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."






5 9 6 "Understand therefore, that the LORD thy God giveth thee not this good land to possess it for thy righteousness; for thou [art] a stiffnecked people."






5 9 7 "Remember, [and] forget not, how thou provokedst the LORD thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the LORD."






5 9 8 "Also in Horeb ye provoked the LORD to wrath, so that the LORD was angry with you to have destroyed you."






5 9 9 "When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, [even] the tables of the covenant which the LORD made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread nor drink water:"






5 9 10 "And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them [was written] according to all the words, which the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly."






5 9 11 "And it came to pass at the end of forty days and forty nights, [that] the LORD gave me the two tables of stone, [even] the tables of the covenant."






5 9 12 "And the LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted [themselves]; they are quickly turned aside out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten image."






5 9 13 "Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it [is] a stiffnecked people:"






5 9 14 "Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they."






5 9 15 "So I turned and came down from the mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two tables of the covenant [were] in my two hands."






5 9 16 "And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned against the LORD your God, [and] had made you a molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the way which the LORD had commanded you."






5 9 17 "And I took the two tables, and cast them out of my two hands, and brake them before your eyes."






5 9 18 "And I fell down before the LORD, as at the first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger."






5 9 19 "For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the LORD was wroth against you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also."






5 9 20 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also the same time.






5 9 21 "And I took your sin, the calf which ye had made, and burnt it with fire, and stamped it, [and] ground [it] very small, [even] until it was as small as dust: and I cast the dust thereof into the brook that descended out of the mount."






5 9 22 "And at Taberah, and at Massah, and at Kibrothhattaavah, ye provoked the LORD to wrath."






5 9 23 "Likewise when the LORD sent you from Kadeshbarnea, saying, Go up and possess the land which I have given you; then ye rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God, and ye believed him not, nor hearkened to his voice."






5 9 24 Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I knew you.






5 9 25 "Thus I fell down before the LORD forty days and forty nights, as I fell down [at the first]; because the LORD had said he would destroy you."






5 9 26 "I prayed therefore unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, destroy not thy people and thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed through thy greatness, which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt with a mighty hand."






5 9 27 "Remember thy servants, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; look not unto the stubbornness of this people, nor to their wickedness, nor to their sin:"






5 9 28 "Lest the land whence thou broughtest us out say, Because the LORD was not able to bring them into the land which he promised them, and because he hated them, he hath brought them out to slay them in the wilderness."






5 9 29 "Yet they [are] thy people and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest out by thy mighty power and by thy stretched out arm."






5 10 1 "At that time the LORD said unto me, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first, and come up unto me into the mount, and make thee an ark of wood."






5 10 2 "And I will write on the tables the words that were in the first tables which thou brakest, and thou shalt put them in the ark."






5 10 3 "And I made an ark [of] shittim wood, and hewed two tables of stone like unto the first, and went up into the mount, having the two tables in mine hand."






5 10 4 "And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me."






5 10 5 "And I turned myself and came down from the mount, and put the tables in the ark which I had made; and there they be, as the LORD commanded me."






5 10 6 "And the children of Israel took their journey from Beeroth of the children of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and there he was buried; and Eleazar his son ministered in the priest's office in his stead."






5 10 7 "From thence they journeyed unto Gudgodah; and from Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of rivers of waters."






5 10 8 "At that time the LORD separated the tribe of Levi, to bear the ark of the covenant of the LORD, to stand before the LORD to minister unto him, and to bless in his name, unto this day."






5 10 9 "Wherefore Levi hath no part nor inheritance with his brethren; the LORD [is] his inheritance, according as the LORD thy God promised him."






5 10 10 "And I stayed in the mount, according to the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, [and] the LORD would not destroy thee."






5 10 11 "And the LORD said unto me, Arise, take [thy] journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give unto them."






5 10 12 "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,"






5 10 13 "To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?"






5 10 14 "Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens [is] the LORD'S thy God, the earth [also], with all that therein [is]."






5 10 15 "Only the LORD had a delight in thy fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, [even] you above all people, as [it is] this day."






5 10 16 "Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked."






5 10 17 "For the LORD your God [is] God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:"






5 10 18 "He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment."






5 10 19 Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.






5 10 20 "Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name."






5 10 21 "He [is] thy praise, and he [is] thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen."






5 10 22 Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude.






5 11 1 "Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway."






5 11 2 "And know ye this day: for [I speak] not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen the chastisement of the LORD your God, his greatness, his mighty hand, and his stretched out arm,"






5 11 3 "And his miracles, and his acts, which he did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land;"






5 11 4 "And what he did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he made the water of the Red sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and [how] the LORD hath destroyed them unto this day;"






5 11 5 "And what he did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came into this place;"






5 11 6 "And what he did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben: how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that [was] in their possession, in the midst of all Israel:"






5 11 7 But your eyes have seen all the great acts of the LORD which he did.






5 11 8 "Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;"






5 11 9 "And that ye may prolong [your] days in the land, which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey."






5 11 10 "For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, [is] not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and wateredst [it] with thy foot, as a garden of herbs:"






5 11 11 "But the land, whither ye go to possess it, [is] a land of hills and valleys, [and] drinketh water of the rain of heaven:"






5 11 12 "A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God [are] always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year."






5 11 13 "And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,"






5 11 14 "That I will give [you] the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil."






5 11 15 "And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full."






5 11 16 "Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;"






5 11 17 "And [then] the LORD'S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and [lest] ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you."






5 11 18 "Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes."






5 11 19 "And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."






5 11 20 "And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:"






5 11 21 "That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth."






5 11 22 "For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;"






5 11 23 "Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves."






5 11 24 "Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be."






5 11 25 "There shall no man be able to stand before you: [for] the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you."






5 11 26 "Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;"






5 11 27 "A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:"






5 11 28 "And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known."






5 11 29 "And it shall come to pass, when the LORD thy God hath brought thee in unto the land whither thou goest to possess it, that thou shalt put the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the curse upon mount Ebal."






5 11 30 "[Are] they not on the other side Jordan, by the way where the sun goeth down, in the land of the Canaanites, which dwell in the champaign over against Gilgal, beside the plains of Moreh?"






5 11 31 "For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land which the LORD your God giveth you, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein."






5 11 32 And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day.






5 12 1 "These [are] the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which the LORD God of thy fathers giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth."






5 12 2 "Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations which ye shall possess served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree:"






5 12 3 "And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place."






5 12 4 Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.






5 12 5 "But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, [even] unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come:"






5 12 6 "And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:"






5 12 7 "And there ye shall eat before the LORD your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the LORD thy God hath blessed thee."






5 12 8 "Ye shall not do after all [the things] that we do here this day, every man whatsoever [is] right in his own eyes."






5 12 9 "For ye are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which the LORD your God giveth you."






5 12 10 "But [when] ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the LORD your God giveth you to inherit, and [when] he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety;"






5 12 11 "Then there shall be a place which the LORD your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the LORD:"






5 12 12 "And ye shall rejoice before the LORD your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that [is] within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you."






5 12 13 Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings in every place that thou seest:






5 12 14 "But in the place which the LORD shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee."






5 12 15 "Notwithstanding thou mayest kill and eat flesh in all thy gates, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee: the unclean and the clean may eat thereof, as of the roebuck, and as of the hart."






5 12 16 Only ye shall not eat the blood; ye shall pour it upon the earth as water.






5 12 17 "Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand:"






5 12 18 "But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that [is] within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God in all that thou puttest thine hands unto."






5 12 19 Take heed to thyself that thou forsake not the Levite as long as thou livest upon the earth.






5 12 20 "When the LORD thy God shall enlarge thy border, as he hath promised thee, and thou shalt say, I will eat flesh, because thy soul longeth to eat flesh; thou mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after."






5 12 21 "If the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to put his name there be too far from thee, then thou shalt kill of thy herd and of thy flock, which the LORD hath given thee, as I have commanded thee, and thou shalt eat in thy gates whatsoever thy soul lusteth after."






5 12 22 "Even as the roebuck and the hart is eaten, so thou shalt eat them: the unclean and the clean shall eat [of] them alike."






5 12 23 Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood [is] the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh.






5 12 24 Thou shalt not eat it; thou shalt pour it upon the earth as water.






5 12 25 "Thou shalt not eat it; that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, when thou shalt do [that which is] right in the sight of the LORD."






5 12 26 "Only thy holy things which thou hast, and thy vows, thou shalt take, and go unto the place which the LORD shall choose:"






5 12 27 "And thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, the flesh and the blood, upon the altar of the LORD thy God: and the blood of thy sacrifices shall be poured out upon the altar of the LORD thy God, and thou shalt eat the flesh."






5 12 28 "Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee for ever, when thou doest [that which is] good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God."






5 12 29 "When the LORD thy God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;"






5 12 30 "Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise."






5 12 31 "Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God: for every abomination to the LORD, which he hateth, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods."






5 12 32 "What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."






5 13 1 "If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,"






5 13 2 "And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;"






5 13 3 "Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul."






5 13 4 "Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him."






5 13 5 "And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn [you] away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee."






5 13 6 "If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which [is] as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers;"






5 13 7 "[Namely], of the gods of the people which [are] round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth;"






5 13 8 "Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him:"






5 13 9 "But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people."






5 13 10 "And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage."






5 13 11 "And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you."






5 13 12 "If thou shalt hear [say] in one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,"






5 13 13 "[Certain] men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known;"






5 13 14 "Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, [if it be] truth, [and] the thing certain, [that] such abomination is wrought among you;"






5 13 15 "Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that [is] therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword."






5 13 16 "And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again."






5 13 17 "And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;"






5 13 18 "When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do [that which is] right in the eyes of the LORD thy God."






5 14 1 "Ye [are] the children of the LORD your God: ye shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead."






5 14 2 "For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that [are] upon the earth."






5 14 3 Thou shalt not eat any abominable thing.






5 14 4 "These [are] the beasts which ye shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,"






5 14 5 "The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois."






5 14 6 "And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, [and] cheweth the cud among the beasts, that ye shall eat."






5 14 7 "Nevertheless these ye shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; [as] the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; [therefore] they [are] unclean unto you."






5 14 8 "And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it [is] unclean unto you: ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase."






5 14 9 These ye shall eat of all that [are] in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall ye eat:






5 14 10 And whatsoever hath not fins and scales ye may not eat; it [is] unclean unto you.






5 14 11 [Of] all clean birds ye shall eat.






5 14 12 "But these [are they] of which ye shall not eat: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,"






5 14 13 "And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind,"






5 14 14 "And every raven after his kind,"






5 14 15 "And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,"






5 14 16 "The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,"






5 14 17 "And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant,"






5 14 18 "And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat."






5 14 19 And every creeping thing that flieth [is] unclean unto you: they shall not be eaten.






5 14 20 [But of] all clean fowls ye may eat.






5 14 21 "Ye shall not eat [of] any thing that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that [is] in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk."






5 14 22 "Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year."






5 14 23 "And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always."






5 14 24 "And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; [or] if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:"






5 14 25 "Then shalt thou turn [it] into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:"






5 14 26 "And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household,"






5 14 27 And the Levite that [is] within thy gates; thou shalt not forsake him; for he hath no part nor inheritance with thee.






5 14 28 "At the end of three years thou shalt bring forth all the tithe of thine increase the same year, and shalt lay [it] up within thy gates:"






5 14 29 "And the Levite, (because he hath no part nor inheritance with thee,) and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, which [are] within thy gates, shall come, and shall eat and be satisfied; that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hand which thou doest."






5 15 1 At the end of [every] seven years thou shalt make a release.






5 15 2 "And this [is] the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth [ought] unto his neighbour shall release [it]; he shall not exact [it] of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release."






5 15 3 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact [it again]: but [that] which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;






5 15 4 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance to possess it:






5 15 5 "Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day."






5 15 6 "For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee."






5 15 7 "If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:"






5 15 8 "But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, [in that] which he wanteth."






5 15 9 "Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee."






5 15 10 "Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto."






5 15 11 "For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land."






5 15 12 "[And] if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee."






5 15 13 "And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty:"






5 15 14 "Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: [of that] wherewith the LORD thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him."






5 15 15 "And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing to day."






5 15 16 "And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from thee; because he loveth thee and thine house, because he is well with thee;"






5 15 17 "Then thou shalt take an aul, and thrust [it] through his ear unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also unto thy maidservant thou shalt do likewise."






5 15 18 "It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant [to thee], in serving thee six years: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all that thou doest."






5 15 19 "All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy flock thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy sheep."






5 15 20 "Thou shalt eat [it] before the LORD thy God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose, thou and thy household."






5 15 21 "And if there be [any] blemish therein, [as if it be] lame, or blind, [or have] any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God."






5 15 22 "Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean [person shall eat it] alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart."






5 15 23 Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it upon the ground as water.






5 16 1 "Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night."






5 16 2 "Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there."






5 16 3 "Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, [even] the bread of affliction; for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life."






5 16 4 "And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there [any thing] of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning."






5 16 5 "Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:"






5 16 6 "But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt."






5 16 7 "And thou shalt roast and eat [it] in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents."






5 16 8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day [shall be] a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work [therein].






5 16 9 Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from [such time as] thou beginnest [to put] the sickle to the corn.






5 16 10 "And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give [unto the LORD thy God], according as the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:"






5 16 11 "And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that [is] within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that [are] among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there."






5 16 12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.






5 16 13 "Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:"






5 16 14 "And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that [are] within thy gates."






5 16 15 "Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice."






5 16 16 "Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:"






5 16 17 "Every man [shall give] as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee."






5 16 18 "Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment."






5 16 19 "Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous."






5 16 20 "That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."






5 16 21 "Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee."






5 16 22 Neither shalt thou set thee up [any] image; which the LORD thy God hateth.






5 17 1 "Thou shalt not sacrifice unto the LORD thy God [any] bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, [or] any evilfavouredness: for that [is] an abomination unto the LORD thy God."






5 17 2 "If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant,"






5 17 3 "And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;"






5 17 4 "And it be told thee, and thou hast heard [of it], and enquired diligently, and, behold, [it be] true, [and] the thing certain, [that] such abomination is wrought in Israel:"






5 17 5 "Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, [even] that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die."






5 17 6 "At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; [but] at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death."






5 17 7 "The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you."






5 17 8 "If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, [being] matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the LORD thy God shall choose;"






5 17 9 "And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment:"






5 17 10 "And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the LORD shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee:"






5 17 11 "According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, [to] the right hand, nor [to] the left."






5 17 12 "And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel."






5 17 13 "And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously."






5 17 14 "When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that [are] about me;"






5 17 15 "Thou shalt in any wise set [him] king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: [one] from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which [is] not thy brother."






5 17 16 "But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way."






5 17 17 "Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold."






5 17 18 "And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of [that which is] before the priests the Levites:"






5 17 19 "And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:"






5 17 20 "That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, [to] the right hand, or [to] the left: to the end that he may prolong [his] days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel."






5 18 1 "The priests the Levites, [and] all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance."






5 18 2 "Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the LORD [is] their inheritance, as he hath said unto them."






5 18 3 "And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether [it be] ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw."






5 18 4 "The firstfruit [also] of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him."






5 18 5 "For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever."






5 18 6 "And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the LORD shall choose;"






5 18 7 "Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as all his brethren the Levites [do], which stand there before the LORD."






5 18 8 "They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony."






5 18 9 "When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations."






5 18 10 "There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,"






5 18 11 "Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer."






5 18 12 For all that do these things [are] an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.






5 18 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.






5 18 14 "For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so [to do]."

5 19 1 "When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the LORD thy God giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;"






5 19 2 "Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it."






5 19 3 "Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee thither."






5 19 4 "And this [is] the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither, that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;"






5 19 5 "As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live:"






5 19 6 "Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he [was] not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past."






5 19 7 "Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three cities for thee."






5 19 8 "And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers;"






5 19 9 "If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:"






5 19 10 "That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance, and [so] blood be upon thee."






5 19 11 "But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:"






5 19 12 "Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die."






5 19 13 "Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away [the guilt of] innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee."






5 19 14 "Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it."






5 19 15 "One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established."






5 19 16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him [that which is] wrong;






5 19 17 "Then both the men, between whom the controversy [is], shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;"






5 19 18 "And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, [if] the witness [be] a false witness, [and] hath testified falsely against his brother;"






5 19 19 "Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you."






5 19 20 "And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you."






5 19 21 "And thine eye shall not pity; [but] life [shall go] for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot."






5 20 1 "When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, [and] a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."






5 20 2 "And it shall be, when ye are come nigh unto the battle, that the priest shall approach and speak unto the people,"






5 20 3 "And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;"






5 20 4 "For the LORD your God [is] he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you."






5 20 5 "And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man [is there] that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it."






5 20 6 "And what man [is he] that hath planted a vineyard, and hath not [yet] eaten of it? let him [also] go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man eat of it."






5 20 7 "And what man [is there] that hath betrothed a wife, and hath not taken her? let him go and return unto his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man take her."






5 20 8 "And the officers shall speak further unto the people, and they shall say, What man [is there that is] fearful and fainthearted? let him go and return unto his house, lest his brethren's heart faint as well as his heart."






5 20 9 "And it shall be, when the officers have made an end of speaking unto the people, that they shall make captains of the armies to lead the people."






5 20 10 "When thou comest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it."






5 20 11 "And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, [that] all the people [that is] found therein shall be tributaries unto thee, and they shall serve thee."






5 20 12 "And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:"






5 20 13 "And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:"






5 20 14 "But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, [even] all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee."






5 20 15 "Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities [which are] very far off from thee, which [are] not of the cities of these nations."






5 20 16 "But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee [for] an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:"






5 20 17 "But thou shalt utterly destroy them; [namely], the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:"






5 20 18 "That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God."






5 20 19 "When thou shalt besiege a city a long time, in making war against it to take it, thou shalt not destroy the trees thereof by forcing an axe against them: for thou mayest eat of them, and thou shalt not cut them down (for the tree of the field [is] man's [life]) to employ [them] in the siege:"






5 20 20 "Only the trees which thou knowest that they [be] not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued."






5 21 1 "If [one] be found slain in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it, lying in the field, [and] it be not known who hath slain him:"






5 21 2 "Then thy elders and thy judges shall come forth, and they shall measure unto the cities which [are] round about him that is slain:"






5 21 3 "And it shall be, [that] the city [which is] next unto the slain man, even the elders of that city shall take an heifer, which hath not been wrought with, [and] which hath not drawn in the yoke;"






5 21 4 "And the elders of that city shall bring down the heifer unto a rough valley, which is neither eared nor sown, and shall strike off the heifer's neck there in the valley:"






5 21 5 "And the priests the sons of Levi shall come near; for them the LORD thy God hath chosen to minister unto him, and to bless in the name of the LORD; and by their word shall every controversy and every stroke be [tried]:"






5 21 6 "And all the elders of that city, [that are] next unto the slain [man], shall wash their hands over the heifer that is beheaded in the valley:"






5 21 7 "And they shall answer and say, Our hands have not shed this blood, neither have our eyes seen [it]."






5 21 8 "Be merciful, O LORD, unto thy people Israel, whom thou hast redeemed, and lay not innocent blood unto thy people of Israel's charge. And the blood shall be forgiven them."






5 21 9 "So shalt thou put away the [guilt of] innocent blood from among you, when thou shalt do [that which is] right in the sight of the LORD."






5 21 10 "When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive,"






5 21 11 "And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife;"






5 21 12 "Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails;"






5 21 13 "And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in thine house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month: and after that thou shalt go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be thy wife."






5 21 14 "And it shall be, if thou have no delight in her, then thou shalt let her go whither she will; but thou shalt not sell her at all for money, thou shalt not make merchandise of her, because thou hast humbled her."






5 21 15 "If a man have two wives, one beloved, and another hated, and they have born him children, [both] the beloved and the hated; and [if] the firstborn son be hers that was hated:"






5 21 16 "Then it shall be, when he maketh his sons to inherit [that] which he hath, [that] he may not make the son of the beloved firstborn before the son of the hated, [which is indeed] the firstborn:"






5 21 17 "But he shall acknowledge the son of the hated [for] the firstborn, by giving him a double portion of all that he hath: for he [is] the beginning of his strength; the right of the firstborn [is] his."






5 21 18 "If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and [that], when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:"






5 21 19 "Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;"






5 21 20 "And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard."






5 21 21 "And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear."






5 21 22 "And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:"






5 21 23 "His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged [is] accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance."






5 22 1 "Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto thy brother."






5 22 2 "And if thy brother [be] not nigh unto thee, or if thou know him not, then thou shalt bring it unto thine own house, and it shall be with thee until thy brother seek after it, and thou shalt restore it to him again."






5 22 3 "In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself."






5 22 4 "Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt surely help him to lift [them] up again."






5 22 5 "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God."






5 22 6 "If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way in any tree, or on the ground, [whether they be] young ones, or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young:"






5 22 7 "[But] thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, and take the young to thee; that it may be well with thee, and [that] thou mayest prolong [thy] days."






5 22 8 "When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence."






5 22 9 "Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled."






5 22 10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.






5 22 11 "Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, [as] of woollen and linen together."






5 22 12 "Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest [thyself]."






5 22 13 "If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,"






5 22 14 "And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid:"






5 22 15 "Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth [the tokens of] the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate:"






5 22 16 "And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her;"






5 22 17 "And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech [against her], saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these [are the tokens of] my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city."






5 22 18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him;






5 22 19 "And they shall amerce him in an hundred [shekels] of silver, and give [them] unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days."






5 22 20 "But if this thing be true, [and the tokens of] virginity be not found for the damsel:"






5 22 21 "Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you."






5 22 22 "If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, [both] the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel."






5 22 23 "If a damsel [that is] a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;"






5 22 24 "Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, [being] in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you."






5 22 25 "But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:"






5 22 26 "But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; [there is] in the damsel no sin [worthy] of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so [is] this matter:"






5 22 27 "For he found her in the field, [and] the betrothed damsel cried, and [there was] none to save her."






5 22 28 "If a man find a damsel [that is] a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;"






5 22 29 "Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty [shekels] of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days."






5 22 30 "A man shall not take his father's wife, nor discover his father's skirt."






5 23 1 "He that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD."






5 23 2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.






5 23 3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD for ever:






5 23 4 "Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee."






5 23 5 "Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee."






5 23 6 Thou shalt not seek their peace nor their prosperity all thy days for ever.






5 23 7 Thou shalt not abhor an Edomite; for he [is] thy brother: thou shalt not abhor an Egyptian; because thou wast a stranger in his land.






5 23 8 The children that are begotten of them shall enter into the congregation of the LORD in their third generation.






5 23 9 "When the host goeth forth against thine enemies, then keep thee from every wicked thing."






5 23 10 "If there be among you any man, that is not clean by reason of uncleanness that chanceth him by night, then shall he go abroad out of the camp, he shall not come within the camp:"






5 23 11 "But it shall be, when evening cometh on, he shall wash [himself] with water: and when the sun is down, he shall come into the camp [again]."






5 23 12 "Thou shalt have a place also without the camp, whither thou shalt go forth abroad:"






5 23 13 "And thou shalt have a paddle upon thy weapon; and it shall be, when thou wilt ease thyself abroad, thou shalt dig therewith, and shalt turn back and cover that which cometh from thee:"






5 23 14 "For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee."






5 23 15 Thou shalt not deliver unto his master the servant which is escaped from his master unto thee:






5 23 16 "He shall dwell with thee, [even] among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates, where it liketh him best: thou shalt not oppress him."






5 23 17 "There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel."






5 23 18 "Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God."






5 23 19 "Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent upon usury:"






5 23 20 Unto a stranger thou mayest lend upon usury; but unto thy brother thou shalt not lend upon usury: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all that thou settest thine hand to in the land whither thou goest to possess it.






5 23 21 "When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee."






5 23 22 "But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee."






5 23 23 "That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform; [even] a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth."






5 23 24 "When thou comest into thy neighbour's vineyard, then thou mayest eat grapes thy fill at thine own pleasure; but thou shalt not put [any] in thy vessel."






5 23 25 "When thou comest into the standing corn of thy neighbour, then thou mayest pluck the ears with thine hand; but thou shalt not move a sickle unto thy neighbour's standing corn."






5 24 1 "When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give [it] in her hand, and send her out of his house."






5 24 2 "And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's [wife]."






5 24 3 "And [if] the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth [it] in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her [to be] his wife;"






5 24 4 "Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that [is] abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance."






5 24 5 "When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: [but] he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken."

5 24 9 "Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt."






5 24 10 "When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge."






5 24 11 "Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee."






5 24 12 "And if the man [be] poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:"






5 24 13 "In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God."






5 24 14 "Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant [that is] poor and needy, [whether he be] of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that [are] in thy land within thy gates:"






5 24 15 "At his day thou shalt give [him] his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he [is] poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee."






5 24 16 "The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin."






5 24 17 "Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, [nor] of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:"






5 24 18 "But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing."






5 24 19 "When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands."

5 24 21 "When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean [it] afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow."






5 24 22 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.






5 25 1 "If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that [the judges] may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked."






5 25 2 "And it shall be, if the wicked man [be] worthy to be beaten, that the judge shall cause him to lie down, and to be beaten before his face, according to his fault, by a certain number."






5 25 3 "Forty stripes he may give him, [and] not exceed: lest, [if] he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee."

5 25 13 "Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small."






5 25 14 "Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small."

5 26 1 "And it shall be, when thou [art] come in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee [for] an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein;"






5 26 2 "That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt put [it] in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there."

5 26 13 "Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of [mine] house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten [them]:"






5 26 14 "I have not eaten thereof in my mourning, neither have I taken away [ought] thereof for [any] unclean [use], nor given [ought] thereof for the dead: [but] I have hearkened to the voice of the LORD my God, [and] have done according to all that thou hast commanded me."

5 27 2 "And it shall be on the day when ye shall pass over Jordan unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, that thou shalt set thee up great stones, and plaister them with plaister:"






5 27 3 "And thou shalt write upon them all the words of this law, when thou art passed over, that thou mayest go in unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, a land that floweth with milk and honey; as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee."






5 27 4 "Therefore it shall be when ye be gone over Jordan, [that] ye shall set up these stones, which I command you this day, in mount Ebal, and thou shalt plaister them with plaister."






5 27 5 "And there shalt thou build an altar unto the LORD thy God, an altar of stones: thou shalt not lift up [any] iron [tool] upon them."






5 27 6 Thou shalt build the altar of the LORD thy God of whole stones: and thou shalt offer burnt offerings thereon unto the LORD thy God:






5 27 7 "And thou shalt offer peace offerings, and shalt eat there, and rejoice before the LORD thy God."






5 27 8 And thou shalt write upon the stones all the words of this law very plainly.






5 27 9 "And Moses and the priests the Levites spake unto all Israel, saying, Take heed, and hearken, O Israel; this day thou art become the people of the LORD thy God."






5 27 10 "Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day."






5 27 11 "And Moses charged the people the same day, saying,"






5 27 12 "These shall stand upon mount Gerizim to bless the people, when ye are come over Jordan; Simeon, and Levi, and Judah, and Issachar, and Joseph, and Benjamin:"






5 27 13 "And these shall stand upon mount Ebal to curse; Reuben, Gad, and Asher, and Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali."






5 27 14 "And the Levites shall speak, and say unto all the men of Israel with a loud voice,"






5 27 15 "Cursed [be] the man that maketh [any] graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth [it] in [a] secret [place]. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen."

5 27 24 "Cursed [be] he that smiteth his neighbour secretly. And all the people shall say, Amen."






5 27 25 "Cursed [be] he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen."






5 27 26 "Cursed [be] he that confirmeth not [all] the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen."






5 28 1 "And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and] to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:"






5 28 2 "And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God."






5 28 3 "Blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the field."






5 28 4 "Blessed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep."






5 28 5 Blessed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.






5 28 6 "Blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out."






5 28 7 "The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways."






5 28 8 "The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee."






5 28 9 "The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways."






5 28 10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.






5 28 11 "And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee."






5 28 12 "The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow."






5 28 13 "And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them]:"






5 28 14 "And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, [to] the right hand, or [to] the left, to go after other gods to serve them."






5 28 15 "But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:"






5 28 16 "Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the field."






5 28 17 Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.






5 28 18 "Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep."






5 28 19 "Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out."






5 28 20 "The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me."






5 28 21 "The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it."






5 28 22 "The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish."






5 28 23 "And thy heaven that [is] over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee [shall be] iron."






5 28 24 "The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed."






5 28 25 "The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth."






5 28 26 "And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray [them] away."






5 28 27 "The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed."






5 28 28 "The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:"






5 28 29 "And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee]."






5 28 30 "Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof."






5 28 31 "Thine ox [shall be] slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass [shall be] violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep [shall be] given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue [them]."






5 28 32 "Thy sons and thy daughters [shall be] given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail [with longing] for them all the day long: and [there shall be] no might in thine hand."






5 28 33 "The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:"






5 28 34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.






5 28 35 "The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head."






5 28 36 "The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone."






5 28 37 "And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee."






5 28 38 "Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather [but] little in; for the locust shall consume it."






5 28 39 "Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress [them], but shalt neither drink [of] the wine, nor gather [the grapes]; for the worms shall eat them."






5 28 40 "Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint [thyself] with the oil; for thine olive shall cast [his fruit]."






5 28 41 "Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity."






5 28 42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.






5 28 43 The stranger that [is] within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.






5 28 44 "He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail."






5 28 45 "Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:"






5 28 46 "And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever."






5 28 47 "Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all [things];"






5 28 48 "Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all [things]: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee."






5 28 49 "The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, [as swift] as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;"






5 28 50 "A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:"






5 28 51 "And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which [also] shall not leave thee [either] corn, wine, or oil, [or] the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee."






5 28 52 "And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee."






5 28 53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:"






5 28 54 "[So that] the man [that is] tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:"






5 28 55 "So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates."






5 28 56 "The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,"






5 28 57 "And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all [things] secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates."






5 28 58 "If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;"






5 28 59 "Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, [even] great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance."






5 28 60 "Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee."






5 28 61 "Also every sickness, and every plague, which [is] not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed."






5 28 62 "And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God."






5 28 63 "And it shall come to pass, [that] as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it."






5 28 64 "And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, [even] wood and stone."






5 28 65 "And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:"






5 28 66 "And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:"






5 28 67 "In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see."






5 28 68 "And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy [you]."






5 29 1 "These [are] the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb."






5 29 2 "And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;"






5 29 3 "The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:"






5 29 4 "Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day."






5 29 5 "And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot."






5 29 6 "Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I [am] the LORD your God."






5 29 7 "And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them:"






5 29 8 "And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh."






5 29 9 "Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do."






5 29 10 "Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, [with] all the men of Israel,"






5 29 11 "Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that [is] in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:"






5 29 12 "That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day:"






5 29 13 "That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and [that] he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob."






5 29 14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;






5 29 15 "But with [him] that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with [him] that [is] not here with us this day:"






5 29 16 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by;






5 29 17 "And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which [were] among them:)"






5 29 18 "Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go [and] serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;"






5 29 19 "And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:"






5 29 20 "The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven."






5 29 21 "And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:"






5 29 22 "So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it;"






5 29 23 "[And that] the whole land thereof [is] brimstone, and salt, [and] burning, [that] it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:"






5 29 24 "Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what [meaneth] the heat of this great anger?"






5 29 25 "Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:"






5 29 26 "For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and [whom] he had not given unto them:"






5 29 27 "And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:"






5 29 28 "And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as [it is] this day."






5 29 29 "The secret [things belong] unto the LORD our God: but those [things which are] revealed [belong] unto us and to our children for ever, that [we] may do all the words of this law."






5 30 1 "And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call [them] to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,"






5 30 2 "And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;"






5 30 3 "That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee."






5 30 4 "If [any] of thine be driven out unto the outmost [parts] of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:"






5 30 5 "And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers."






5 30 6 "And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live."






5 30 7 "And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee."






5 30 8 "And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day."






5 30 9 "And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:"






5 30 10 "If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, [and] if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul."






5 30 11 "For this commandment which I command thee this day, it [is] not hidden from thee, neither [is] it far off."






5 30 12 "It [is] not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?"






5 30 13 "Neither [is] it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?"






5 30 14 "But the word [is] very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it."






5 30 15 "See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;"






5 30 16 "In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it."






5 30 17 "But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;"






5 30 18 "I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, [and that] ye shall not prolong [your] days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it."






5 30 19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"






5 30 20 "That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he [is] thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them."






5 31 1 And Moses went and spake these words unto all Israel.






5 31 2 "And he said unto them, I [am] an hundred and twenty years old this day; I can no more go out and come in: also the LORD hath said unto me, Thou shalt not go over this Jordan."






5 31 3 "The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, [and] he will destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: [and] Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said."






5 31 4 "And the LORD shall do unto them as he did to Sihon and to Og, kings of the Amorites, and unto the land of them, whom he destroyed."






5 31 5 "And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you."






5 31 6 "Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."






5 31 7 "And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it."






5 31 8 "And the LORD, he [it is] that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed."






5 31 9 "And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and unto all the elders of Israel."






5 31 10 "And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of [every] seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,"






5 31 11 "When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing."






5 31 12 "Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that [is] within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:"






5 31 13 "And [that] their children, which have not known [any thing], may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it."






5 31 14 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation."






5 31 15 And the LORD appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.






5 31 16 "And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go [to be] among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them."






5 31 17 "Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God [is] not among us?"






5 31 18 "And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods."






5 31 19 "Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel."






5 31 20 "For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant."






5 31 21 "And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware."






5 31 22 "Moses therefore wrote this song the same day, and taught it the children of Israel."






5 31 23 "And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee."






5 31 24 "And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished,"






5 31 25 "That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying,"






5 31 26 "Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee."






5 31 27 "For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?"






5 31 28 "Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them."






5 31 29 "For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt [yourselves], and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands."






5 31 30 "And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended."






5 32 1 "Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth."






5 32 2 "My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:"






5 32 3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.






5 32 4 "[He is] the Rock, his work [is] perfect: for all his ways [are] judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right [is] he."






5 32 5 "They have corrupted themselves, their spot [is] not [the spot] of his children: [they are] a perverse and crooked generation."






5 32 6 "Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? [is] not he thy father [that] hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?"






5 32 7 "Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee."






5 32 8 "When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel."






5 32 9 For the LORD'S portion [is] his people; Jacob [is] the lot of his inheritance.






5 32 10 "He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye."






5 32 11 "As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:"






5 32 12 "[So] the LORD alone did lead him, and [there was] no strange god with him."






5 32 13 "He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;"






5 32 14 "Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape."






5 32 15 "But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered [with fatness]; then he forsook God [which] made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation."






5 32 16 "They provoked him to jealousy with strange [gods], with abominations provoked they him to anger."






5 32 17 "They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new [gods that] came newly up, whom your fathers feared not."






5 32 18 "Of the Rock [that] begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee."






5 32 19 "And when the LORD saw [it], he abhorred [them], because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters."






5 32 20 "And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end [shall be]: for they [are] a very froward generation, children in whom [is] no faith."






5 32 21 They have moved me to jealousy with [that which is] not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with [those which are] not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.






5 32 22 "For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains."






5 32 23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.






5 32 24 "[They shall be] burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust."






5 32 25 "The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling [also] with the man of gray hairs."






5 32 26 "I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:"






5 32 27 "Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, [and] lest they should say, Our hand [is] high, and the LORD hath not done all this."






5 32 28 "For they [are] a nation void of counsel, neither [is there any] understanding in them."






5 32 29 "O that they were wise, [that] they understood this, [that] they would consider their latter end!"






5 32 30 "How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?"






5 32 31 "For their rock [is] not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves [being] judges."






5 32 32 "For their vine [is] of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes [are] grapes of gall, their clusters [are] bitter:"






5 32 33 "Their wine [is] the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps."






5 32 34 "[Is] not this laid up in store with me, [and] sealed up among my treasures?"






5 32 35 "To me [belongeth] vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in [due] time: for the day of their calamity [is] at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste."






5 32 36 "For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that [their] power is gone, and [there is] none shut up, or left."






5 32 37 "And he shall say, Where [are] their gods, [their] rock in whom they trusted,"






5 32 38 "Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, [and] drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, [and] be your protection."






5 32 39 "See now that I, [even] I, [am] he, and [there is] no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither [is there any] that can deliver out of my hand."






5 32 40 "For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever."






5 32 41 "If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me."






5 32 42 "I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; [and that] with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy."






5 32 43 "Rejoice, O ye nations, [with] his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, [and] to his people."






5 32 44 "And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun."






5 32 45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:






5 32 46 "And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law."






5 32 47 "For it [is] not a vain thing for you; because it [is] your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong [your] days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it."






5 32 48 "And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,"






5 32 49 "Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, [unto] mount Nebo, which [is] in the land of Moab, that [is] over against Jericho; and behold the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:"






5 32 50 "And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered unto his people:"






5 32 51 "Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel."






5 32 52 Yet thou shalt see the land before [thee]; but thou shalt not go thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.






5 33 1 "And this [is] the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death."






5 33 2 "And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand [went] a fiery law for them." O?: "And he said: The Lord came from Sinai and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from Mount Párán and He came with ten thousand of saints; from His right hand went a fiery law for them."

MM: "And He said, the Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from Mount Paran, and He came with ten thousands of Saints: from His right hand went a fiery law for them."

6 0 0 Joshua






6 1 1 "Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,"






6 1 2 "Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, [even] to the children of Israel."






6 1 3 "Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses."






6 1 4 "From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast."






6 1 5 "There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, [so] I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."






6 1 6 "Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them."






6 1 7 "Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it [to] the right hand or [to] the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest."






6 1 8 "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."






6 1 9 "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest."






6 1 10 "Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying,"






6 1 11 "Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it."






6 1 12 "And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,"






6 1 13 "Remember the word which Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, saying, The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land."






6 1 14 "Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;"






6 1 15 "Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as [he hath given] you, and they also have possessed the land which the LORD your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the LORD'S servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising."






6 1 16 "And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go."






6 1 17 "According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the LORD thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses."






6 1 18 "Whosoever [he be] that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage."






6 2 1 "And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot's house, named Rahab, and lodged there."






6 2 2 "And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, Behold, there came men in hither to night of the children of Israel to search out the country."






6 2 3 "And the king of Jericho sent unto Rahab, saying, Bring forth the men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine house: for they be come to search out all the country."






6 2 4 "And the woman took the two men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they [were]:"






6 2 5 "And it came to pass [about the time] of shutting of the gate, when it was dark, that the men went out: whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them."






6 2 6 "But she had brought them up to the roof of the house, and hid them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof."






6 2 7 "And the men pursued after them the way to Jordan unto the fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out, they shut the gate."






6 2 8 "And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof;"






6 2 9 "And she said unto the men, I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you."






6 2 10 "For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that [were] on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed."






6 2 11 "And as soon as we had heard [these things], our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he [is] God in heaven above, and in earth beneath."






6 2 12 "Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father's house, and give me a true token:"






6 2 13 "And [that] ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death."






6 2 14 "And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee."






6 2 15 "Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house [was] upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall."






6 2 16 "And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way."






6 2 17 "And the men said unto her, We [will be] blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us swear."






6 2 18 "Behold, [when] we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee."






6 2 19 "And it shall be, [that] whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood [shall be] upon his head, and we [will be] guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood [shall be] on our head, if [any] hand be upon him."






6 2 20 "And if thou utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear."






6 2 21 "And she said, According unto your words, so [be] it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window."






6 2 22 "And they went, and came unto the mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought [them] throughout all the way, but found [them] not."






6 2 23 "So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all [things] that befell them:"






6 2 24 "And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us."






6 3 1 "And Joshua rose early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over."






6 3 2 "And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host;"






6 3 3 "And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, and the priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it."






6 3 4 "Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed [this] way heretofore."






6 3 5 "And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the LORD will do wonders among you."






6 3 6 "And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the ark of the covenant, and went before the people."






6 3 7 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, [so] I will be with thee."






6 3 8 "And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan."






6 3 9 "And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and hear the words of the LORD your God."






6 3 10 "And Joshua said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God [is] among you, and [that] he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites."






6 3 11 "Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan."






6 3 12 "Now therefore take you twelve men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man."






6 3 13 "And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, [that] the waters of Jordan shall be cut off [from] the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap."






6 3 14 "And it came to pass, when the people removed from their tents, to pass over Jordan, and the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people;"






6 3 15 "And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)"






6 3 16 "That the waters which came down from above stood [and] rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that [is] beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, [even] the salt sea, failed, [and] were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho."






6 3 17 "And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan."






6 4 1 "And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,"






6 4 2 "Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man,"






6 4 3 "And command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst of Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night."






6 4 4 "Then Joshua called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:"






6 4 5 "And Joshua said unto them, Pass over before the ark of the LORD your God into the midst of Jordan, and take ye up every man of you a stone upon his shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel:"






6 4 6 "That this may be a sign among you, [that] when your children ask [their fathers] in time to come, saying, What [mean] ye by these stones?"






6 4 7 "Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever."






6 4 8 "And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there."






6 4 9 "And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day."






6 4 10 "For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until every thing was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over."






6 4 11 "And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over, that the ark of the LORD passed over, and the priests, in the presence of the people."






6 4 12 "And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses spake unto them:"






6 4 13 "About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho."






6 4 14 "On that day the LORD magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life."






6 4 15 "And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,"






6 4 16 "Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that they come up out of Jordan."






6 4 17 "Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, Come ye up out of Jordan."






6 4 18 "And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan, [and] the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that the waters of Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his banks, as [they did] before."






6 4 19 "And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth [day] of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho."






6 4 20 "And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua pitch in Gilgal."






6 4 21 "And he spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What [mean] these stones?"






6 4 22 "Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land."






6 4 23 "For the LORD your God dried up the waters of Jordan from before you, until ye were passed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over:"






6 4 24 "That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it [is] mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God for ever."






6 5 1 "And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which [were] on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which [were] by the sea, heard that the LORD had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel."






6 5 2 "At that time the LORD said unto Joshua, Make thee sharp knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time."






6 5 3 "And Joshua made him sharp knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the hill of the foreskins."






6 5 4 "And this [is] the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, [that were] males, [even] all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt."






6 5 5 "Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people [that were] born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, [them] they had not circumcised."






6 5 6 "For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people [that were] men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey."






6 5 7 "And their children, [whom] he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way."






6 5 8 "And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole."






6 5 9 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day."






6 5 10 "And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho."






6 5 11 "And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched [corn] in the selfsame day."






6 5 12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.






6 5 13 "And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, [Art] thou for us, or for our adversaries?"






6 5 14 "And he said, Nay; but [as] captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?"






6 5 15 "And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest [is] holy. And Joshua did so."






6 6 1 "Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in."






6 6 2 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, [and] the mighty men of valour."






6 6 3 "And ye shall compass the city, all [ye] men of war, [and] go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days."






6 6 4 "And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets."






6 6 5 "And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long [blast] with the ram's horn, [and] when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him."






6 6 6 "And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD."






6 6 7 "And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD."






6 6 8 "And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them."






6 6 9 "And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, [the priests] going on, and blowing with the trumpets."






6 6 10 "And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall [any] word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout."






6 6 11 "So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about [it] once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp."






6 6 12 "And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD."






6 6 13 "And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of the LORD, [the priests] going on, and blowing with the trumpets."






6 6 14 "And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days."






6 6 15 "And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times."






6 6 16 "And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city."






6 6 17 "And the city shall be accursed, [even] it, and all that [are] therein, to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that [are] with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent."






6 6 18 "And ye, in any wise keep [yourselves] from the accursed thing, lest ye make [yourselves] accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it."






6 6 19 "But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, [are] consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the LORD."






6 6 20 "So the people shouted when [the priests] blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city."






6 6 21 "And they utterly destroyed all that [was] in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword."






6 6 22 "But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot's house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her."






6 6 23 "And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel."






6 6 24 "And they burnt the city with fire, and all that [was] therein: only the silver, and the gold, and the vessels of brass and of iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the LORD."






6 6 25 "And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel [even] unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho."






6 6 26 "And Joshua adjured [them] at that time, saying, Cursed [be] the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest [son] shall he set up the gates of it."






6 6 27 So the LORD was with Joshua; and his fame was [noised] throughout all the country.






6 7 1 "But the children of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against the children of Israel."






6 7 2 "And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which [is] beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view the country. And the men went up and viewed Ai."






6 7 3 "And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the people go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite Ai; [and] make not all the people to labour thither; for they [are but] few."






6 7 4 So there went up thither of the people about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai.






6 7 5 "And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them [from] before the gate [even] unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water."






6 7 6 "And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the ark of the LORD until the eventide, he and the elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads."






6 7 7 "And Joshua said, Alas, O Lord GOD, wherefore hast thou at all brought this people over Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? would to God we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan!"






6 7 8 "O Lord, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies!"






6 7 9 "For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear [of it], and shall environ us round, and cut off our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto thy great name?"






6 7 10 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?"






6 7 11 "Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put [it] even among their own stuff."






6 7 12 "Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, [but] turned [their] backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you."






6 7 13 "Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, [There is] an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you."






6 7 14 "In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, [that] the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families [thereof]; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man."






6 7 15 "And it shall be, [that] he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and all that he hath: because he hath transgressed the covenant of the LORD, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel."






6 7 16 "So Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought Israel by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken:"






6 7 17 And he brought the family of Judah; and he took the family of the Zarhites: and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man; and Zabdi was taken:






6 7 18 "And he brought his household man by man; and Achan, the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken."






6 7 19 "And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the LORD God of Israel, and make confession unto him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide [it] not from me."






6 7 20 "And Achan answered Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done:"






6 7 21 "When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they [are] hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it."






6 7 22 "So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, [it was] hid in his tent, and the silver under it."






6 7 23 "And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD."






6 7 24 "And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor."






6 7 25 "And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones."






6 7 26 "And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day."






6 8 1 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:"






6 8 2 "And thou shalt do to Ai and her king as thou didst unto Jericho and her king: only the spoil thereof, and the cattle thereof, shall ye take for a prey unto yourselves: lay thee an ambush for the city behind it."






6 8 3 "So Joshua arose, and all the people of war, to go up against Ai: and Joshua chose out thirty thousand mighty men of valour, and sent them away by night."






6 8 4 "And he commanded them, saying, Behold, ye shall lie in wait against the city, [even] behind the city: go not very far from the city, but be ye all ready:"






6 8 5 "And I, and all the people that [are] with me, will approach unto the city: and it shall come to pass, when they come out against us, as at the first, that we will flee before them,"






6 8 6 "(For they will come out after us) till we have drawn them from the city; for they will say, They flee before us, as at the first: therefore we will flee before them."






6 8 7 "Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand."






6 8 8 "And it shall be, when ye have taken the city, [that] ye shall set the city on fire: according to the commandment of the LORD shall ye do. See, I have commanded you."






6 8 9 "Joshua therefore sent them forth: and they went to lie in ambush, and abode between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of Ai: but Joshua lodged that night among the people."






6 8 10 "And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and numbered the people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the people to Ai."






6 8 11 "And all the people, [even the people] of war that [were] with him, went up, and drew nigh, and came before the city, and pitched on the north side of Ai: now [there was] a valley between them and Ai."






6 8 12 "And he took about five thousand men, and set them to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city."






6 8 13 "And when they had set the people, [even] all the host that [was] on the north of the city, and their liers in wait on the west of the city, Joshua went that night into the midst of the valley."






6 8 14 "And it came to pass, when the king of Ai saw [it], that they hasted and rose up early, and the men of the city went out against Israel to battle, he and all his people, at a time appointed, before the plain; but he wist not that [there were] liers in ambush against him behind the city."






6 8 15 "And Joshua and all Israel made as if they were beaten before them, and fled by the way of the wilderness."






6 8 16 "And all the people that [were] in Ai were called together to pursue after them: and they pursued after Joshua, and were drawn away from the city."






6 8 17 "And there was not a man left in Ai or Bethel, that went not out after Israel: and they left the city open, and pursued after Israel."






6 8 18 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that [is] in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And Joshua stretched out the spear that [he had] in his hand toward the city."






6 8 19 "And the ambush arose quickly out of their place, and they ran as soon as he had stretched out his hand: and they entered into the city, and took it, and hasted and set the city on fire."






6 8 20 "And when the men of Ai looked behind them, they saw, and, behold, the smoke of the city ascended up to heaven, and they had no power to flee this way or that way: and the people that fled to the wilderness turned back upon the pursuers."






6 8 21 "And when Joshua and all Israel saw that the ambush had taken the city, and that the smoke of the city ascended, then they turned again, and slew the men of Ai."






6 8 22 "And the other issued out of the city against them; so they were in the midst of Israel, some on this side, and some on that side: and they smote them, so that they let none of them remain or escape."






6 8 23 "And the king of Ai they took alive, and brought him to Joshua."






6 8 24 "And it came to pass, when Israel had made an end of slaying all the inhabitants of Ai in the field, in the wilderness wherein they chased them, and when they were all fallen on the edge of the sword, until they were consumed, that all the Israelites returned unto Ai, and smote it with the edge of the sword."






6 8 25 "And [so] it was, [that] all that fell that day, both of men and women, [were] twelve thousand, [even] all the men of Ai."






6 8 26 "For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai."






6 8 27 "Only the cattle and the spoil of that city Israel took for a prey unto themselves, according unto the word of the LORD which he commanded Joshua."






6 8 28 "And Joshua burnt Ai, and made it an heap for ever, [even] a desolation unto this day."






6 8 29 "And the king of Ai he hanged on a tree until eventide: and as soon as the sun was down, Joshua commanded that they should take his carcase down from the tree, and cast it at the entering of the gate of the city, and raise thereon a great heap of stones, [that remaineth] unto this day."






6 8 30 "Then Joshua built an altar unto the LORD God of Israel in mount Ebal,"






6 8 31 "As Moses the servant of the LORD commanded the children of Israel, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses, an altar of whole stones, over which no man hath lift up [any] iron: and they offered thereon burnt offerings unto the LORD, and sacrificed peace offerings."






6 8 32 "And he wrote there upon the stones a copy of the law of Moses, which he wrote in the presence of the children of Israel."






6 8 33 "And all Israel, and their elders, and officers, and their judges, stood on this side the ark and on that side before the priests the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, as well the stranger, as he that was born among them; half of them over against mount Gerizim, and half of them over against mount Ebal; as Moses the servant of the LORD had commanded before, that they should bless the people of Israel."






6 8 34 "And afterward he read all the words of the law, the blessings and cursings, according to all that is written in the book of the law."






6 8 35 "There was not a word of all that Moses commanded, which Joshua read not before all the congregation of Israel, with the women, and the little ones, and the strangers that were conversant among them."






6 9 1 "And it came to pass, when all the kings which [were] on this side Jordan, in the hills, and in the valleys, and in all the coasts of the great sea over against Lebanon, the Hittite, and the Amorite, the Canaanite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite, heard [thereof];"






6 9 2 "That they gathered themselves together, to fight with Joshua and with Israel, with one accord."






6 9 3 "And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai,"






6 9 4 "They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old, and rent, and bound up;"






6 9 5 "And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry [and] mouldy."






6 9 6 "And they went to Joshua unto the camp at Gilgal, and said unto him, and to the men of Israel, We be come from a far country: now therefore make ye a league with us."






6 9 7 "And the men of Israel said unto the Hivites, Peradventure ye dwell among us; and how shall we make a league with you?"






6 9 8 "And they said unto Joshua, We [are] thy servants. And Joshua said unto them, Who [are] ye? and from whence come ye?"






6 9 9 "And they said unto him, From a very far country thy servants are come because of the name of the LORD thy God: for we have heard the fame of him, and all that he did in Egypt,"






6 9 10 "And all that he did to the two kings of the Amorites, that [were] beyond Jordan, to Sihon king of Heshbon, and to Og king of Bashan, which [was] at Ashtaroth."






6 9 11 "Wherefore our elders and all the inhabitants of our country spake to us, saying, Take victuals with you for the journey, and go to meet them, and say unto them, We [are] your servants: therefore now make ye a league with us."






6 9 12 "This our bread we took hot [for] our provision out of our houses on the day we came forth to go unto you; but now, behold, it is dry, and it is mouldy:"






6 9 13 "And these bottles of wine, which we filled, [were] new; and, behold, they be rent: and these our garments and our shoes are become old by reason of the very long journey."






6 9 14 "And the men took of their victuals, and asked not [counsel] at the mouth of the LORD."






6 9 15 "And Joshua made peace with them, and made a league with them, to let them live: and the princes of the congregation sware unto them."






6 9 16 "And it came to pass at the end of three days after they had made a league with them, that they heard that they [were] their neighbours, and [that] they dwelt among them."






6 9 17 "And the children of Israel journeyed, and came unto their cities on the third day. Now their cities [were] Gibeon, and Chephirah, and Beeroth, and Kirjathjearim."






6 9 18 "And the children of Israel smote them not, because the princes of the congregation had sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel. And all the congregation murmured against the princes."






6 9 19 "But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them."






6 9 20 "This we will do to them; we will even let them live, lest wrath be upon us, because of the oath which we sware unto them."






6 9 21 "And the princes said unto them, Let them live; but let them be hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation; as the princes had promised them."






6 9 22 "And Joshua called for them, and he spake unto them, saying, Wherefore have ye beguiled us, saying, We [are] very far from you; when ye dwell among us?"






6 9 23 "Now therefore ye [are] cursed, and there shall none of you be freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of my God."






6 9 24 "And they answered Joshua, and said, Because it was certainly told thy servants, how that the LORD thy God commanded his servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you, therefore we were sore afraid of our lives because of you, and have done this thing."






6 9 25 "And now, behold, we [are] in thine hand: as it seemeth good and right unto thee to do unto us, do."






6 9 26 "And so did he unto them, and delivered them out of the hand of the children of Israel, that they slew them not."






6 9 27 "And Joshua made them that day hewers of wood and drawers of water for the congregation, and for the altar of the LORD, even unto this day, in the place which he should choose."






6 10 1 "Now it came to pass, when Adonizedek king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, and were among them;"






6 10 2 "That they feared greatly, because Gibeon [was] a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because it [was] greater than Ai, and all the men thereof [were] mighty."






6 10 3 "Wherefore Adonizedek king of Jerusalem sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, saying,"






6 10 4 "Come up unto me, and help me, that we may smite Gibeon: for it hath made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel."






6 10 5 "Therefore the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together, and went up, they and all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it."






6 10 6 "And the men of Gibeon sent unto Joshua to the camp to Gilgal, saying, Slack not thy hand from thy servants; come up to us quickly, and save us, and help us: for all the kings of the Amorites that dwell in the mountains are gathered together against us."






6 10 7 "So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valour."






6 10 8 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee."






6 10 9 "Joshua therefore came unto them suddenly, [and] went up from Gilgal all night."






6 10 10 "And the LORD discomfited them before Israel, and slew them with a great slaughter at Gibeon, and chased them along the way that goeth up to Bethhoron, and smote them to Azekah, and unto Makkedah."






6 10 11 "And it came to pass, as they fled from before Israel, [and] were in the going down to Bethhoron, that the LORD cast down great stones from heaven upon them unto Azekah, and they died: [they were] more which died with hailstones than [they] whom the children of Israel slew with the sword."






6 10 12 "Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon."






6 10 13 "And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. [Is] not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day."






6 10 14 "And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the LORD fought for Israel."






6 10 15 "And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal."






6 10 16 "But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah."






6 10 17 "And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah."






6 10 18 "And Joshua said, Roll great stones upon the mouth of the cave, and set men by it for to keep them:"






6 10 19 "And stay ye not, [but] pursue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the LORD your God hath delivered them into your hand."






6 10 20 "And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed, that the rest [which] remained of them entered into fenced cities."






6 10 21 And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel.






6 10 22 "Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out those five kings unto me out of the cave."






6 10 23 "And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, [and] the king of Eglon."






6 10 24 "And it came to pass, when they brought out those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet upon the necks of them."






6 10 25 "And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed, be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the LORD do to all your enemies against whom ye fight."






6 10 26 "And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening."






6 10 27 "And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, [that] Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had been hid, and laid great stones in the cave's mouth, [which remain] until this very day."






6 10 28 "And that day Joshua took Makkedah, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof he utterly destroyed, them, and all the souls that [were] therein; he let none remain: and he did to the king of Makkedah as he did unto the king of Jericho."






6 10 29 "Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, unto Libnah, and fought against Libnah:"






6 10 30 "And the LORD delivered it also, and the king thereof, into the hand of Israel; and he smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein; he let none remain in it; but did unto the king thereof as he did unto the king of Jericho."






6 10 31 "And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto Lachish, and encamped against it, and fought against it:"






6 10 32 "And the LORD delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein, according to all that he had done to Libnah."






6 10 33 "Then Horam king of Gezer came up to help Lachish; and Joshua smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining."






6 10 34 "And from Lachish Joshua passed unto Eglon, and all Israel with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:"






6 10 35 "And they took it on that day, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the souls that [were] therein he utterly destroyed that day, according to all that he had done to Lachish."






6 10 36 "And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto Hebron; and they fought against it:"






6 10 37 "And they took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof, and all the souls that [were] therein; he left none remaining, according to all that he had done to Eglon; but destroyed it utterly, and all the souls that [were] therein."






6 10 38 "And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir; and fought against it:"






6 10 39 "And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote them with the edge of the sword, and utterly destroyed all the souls that [were] therein; he left none remaining: as he had done to Hebron, so he did to Debir, and to the king thereof; as he had done also to Libnah, and to her king."






6 10 40 "So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the LORD God of Israel commanded."






6 10 41 "And Joshua smote them from Kadeshbarnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon."






6 10 42 "And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the LORD God of Israel fought for Israel."






6 10 43 "And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp to Gilgal."






6 11 1 "And it came to pass, when Jabin king of Hazor had heard [those things], that he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph,"






6 11 2 "And to the kings that [were] on the north of the mountains, and of the plains south of Chinneroth, and in the valley, and in the borders of Dor on the west,"






6 11 3 "[And to] the Canaanite on the east and on the west, and [to] the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite in the mountains, and [to] the Hivite under Hermon in the land of Mizpeh."






6 11 4 "And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that [is] upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many."






6 11 5 "And when all these kings were met together, they came and pitched together at the waters of Merom, to fight against Israel."






6 11 6 "And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire."






6 11 7 "So Joshua came, and all the people of war with him, against them by the waters of Merom suddenly; and they fell upon them."






6 11 8 "And the LORD delivered them into the hand of Israel, who smote them, and chased them unto great Zidon, and unto Misrephothmaim, and unto the valley of Mizpeh eastward; and they smote them, until they left them none remaining."






6 11 9 "And Joshua did unto them as the LORD bade him: he houghed their horses, and burnt their chariots with fire."






6 11 10 "And Joshua at that time turned back, and took Hazor, and smote the king thereof with the sword: for Hazor beforetime was the head of all those kingdoms."






6 11 11 "And they smote all the souls that [were] therein with the edge of the sword, utterly destroying [them]: there was not any left to breathe: and he burnt Hazor with fire."






6 11 12 "And all the cities of those kings, and all the kings of them, did Joshua take, and smote them with the edge of the sword, [and] he utterly destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the LORD commanded."






6 11 13 "But [as for] the cities that stood still in their strength, Israel burned none of them, save Hazor only; [that] did Joshua burn."






6 11 14 "And all the spoil of these cities, and the cattle, the children of Israel took for a prey unto themselves; but every man they smote with the edge of the sword, until they had destroyed them, neither left they any to breathe."






6 11 15 "As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses."






6 11 16 "So Joshua took all that land, the hills, and all the south country, and all the land of Goshen, and the valley, and the plain, and the mountain of Israel, and the valley of the same;"






6 11 17 "[Even] from the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir, even unto Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon under mount Hermon: and all their kings he took, and smote them, and slew them."






6 11 18 Joshua made war a long time with all those kings.






6 11 19 "There was not a city that made peace with the children of Israel, save the Hivites the inhabitants of Gibeon: all [other] they took in battle."






6 11 20 "For it was of the LORD to harden their hearts, that they should come against Israel in battle, that he might destroy them utterly, [and] that they might have no favour, but that he might destroy them, as the LORD commanded Moses."






6 11 21 "And at that time came Joshua, and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the mountains of Judah, and from all the mountains of Israel: Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities."






6 11 22 "There was none of the Anakims left in the land of the children of Israel: only in Gaza, in Gath, and in Ashdod, there remained."






6 11 23 "So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the LORD said unto Moses; and Joshua gave it for an inheritance unto Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. And the land rested from war."






6 12 1 "Now these [are] the kings of the land, which the children of Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east:"






6 12 2 "Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt in Heshbon, [and] ruled from Aroer, which [is] upon the bank of the river Arnon, and from the middle of the river, and from half Gilead, even unto the river Jabbok, [which is] the border of the children of Ammon;"






6 12 3 "And from the plain to the sea of Chinneroth on the east, and unto the sea of the plain, [even] the salt sea on the east, the way to Bethjeshimoth; and from the south, under Ashdothpisgah:"






6 12 4 "And the coast of Og king of Bashan, [which was] of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,"






6 12 5 "And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon."






6 12 6 "Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel smite: and Moses the servant of the LORD gave it [for] a possession unto the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh."






6 12 7 "And these [are] the kings of the country which Joshua and the children of Israel smote on this side Jordan on the west, from Baalgad in the valley of Lebanon even unto the mount Halak, that goeth up to Seir; which Joshua gave unto the tribes of Israel [for] a possession according to their divisions;"






6 12 8 "In the mountains, and in the valleys, and in the plains, and in the springs, and in the wilderness, and in the south country; the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites:"






6 12 9 "The king of Jericho, one; the king of Ai, which [is] beside Bethel, one;"






6 12 10 "The king of Jerusalem, one; the king of Hebron, one;"






6 12 11 "The king of Jarmuth, one; the king of Lachish, one;"






6 12 12 "The king of Eglon, one; the king of Gezer, one;"






6 12 13 "The king of Debir, one; the king of Geder, one;"






6 12 14 "The king of Hormah, one; the king of Arad, one;"






6 12 15 "The king of Libnah, one; the king of Adullam, one;"






6 12 16 "The king of Makkedah, one; the king of Bethel, one;"






6 12 17 "The king of Tappuah, one; the king of Hepher, one;"






6 12 18 "The king of Aphek, one; the king of Lasharon, one;"






6 12 19 "The king of Madon, one; the king of Hazor, one;"






6 12 20 "The king of Shimronmeron, one; the king of Achshaph, one;"






6 12 21 "The king of Taanach, one; the king of Megiddo, one;"






6 12 22 "The king of Kedesh, one; the king of Jokneam of Carmel, one;"






6 12 23 "The king of Dor in the coast of Dor, one; the king of the nations of Gilgal, one;"






6 12 24 "The king of Tirzah, one: all the kings thirty and one."






6 13 1 "Now Joshua was old [and] stricken in years; and the LORD said unto him, Thou art old [and] stricken in years, and there remaineth yet very much land to be possessed."






6 13 2 "This [is] the land that yet remaineth: all the borders of the Philistines, and all Geshuri,"






6 13 3 "From Sihor, which [is] before Egypt, even unto the borders of Ekron northward, [which] is counted to the Canaanite: five lords of the Philistines; the Gazathites, and the Ashdothites, the Eshkalonites, the Gittites, and the Ekronites; also the Avites:"






6 13 4 "From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that [is] beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:"






6 13 5 "And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into Hamath."






6 13 6 "All the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon unto Misrephothmaim, [and] all the Sidonians, them will I drive out from before the children of Israel: only divide thou it by lot unto the Israelites for an inheritance, as I have commanded thee."






6 13 7 "Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance unto the nine tribes, and the half tribe of Manasseh,"






6 13 8 "With whom the Reubenites and the Gadites have received their inheritance, which Moses gave them, beyond Jordan eastward, [even] as Moses the servant of the LORD gave them;"






6 13 9 "From Aroer, that [is] upon the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that [is] in the midst of the river, and all the plain of Medeba unto Dibon;"






6 13 10 "And all the cities of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, unto the border of the children of Ammon;"






6 13 11 "And Gilead, and the border of the Geshurites and Maachathites, and all mount Hermon, and all Bashan unto Salcah;"






6 13 12 "All the kingdom of Og in Bashan, which reigned in Ashtaroth and in Edrei, who remained of the remnant of the giants: for these did Moses smite, and cast them out."






6 13 13 "Nevertheless the children of Israel expelled not the Geshurites, nor the Maachathites: but the Geshurites and the Maachathites dwell among the Israelites until this day."






6 13 14 "Only unto the tribe of Levi he gave none inheritance; the sacrifices of the LORD God of Israel made by fire [are] their inheritance, as he said unto them."






6 13 15 And Moses gave unto the tribe of the children of Reuben [inheritance] according to their families.






6 13 16 "And their coast was from Aroer, that [is] on the bank of the river Arnon, and the city that [is] in the midst of the river, and all the plain by Medeba;"






6 13 17 "Heshbon, and all her cities that [are] in the plain; Dibon, and Bamothbaal, and Bethbaalmeon,"






6 13 18 "And Jahazah, and Kedemoth, and Mephaath,"






6 13 19 "And Kirjathaim, and Sibmah, and Zarethshahar in the mount of the valley,"






6 13 20 "And Bethpeor, and Ashdothpisgah, and Bethjeshimoth,"






6 13 21 "And all the cities of the plain, and all the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites, which reigned in Heshbon, whom Moses smote with the princes of Midian, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, [which were] dukes of Sihon, dwelling in the country."






6 13 22 "Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them."






6 13 23 "And the border of the children of Reuben was Jordan, and the border [thereof]. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Reuben after their families, the cities and the villages thereof."






6 13 24 "And Moses gave [inheritance] unto the tribe of Gad, [even] unto the children of Gad according to their families."






6 13 25 "And their coast was Jazer, and all the cities of Gilead, and half the land of the children of Ammon, unto Aroer that [is] before Rabbah;"






6 13 26 "And from Heshbon unto Ramathmizpeh, and Betonim; and from Mahanaim unto the border of Debir;"






6 13 27 "And in the valley, Betharam, and Bethnimrah, and Succoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of Sihon king of Heshbon, Jordan and [his] border, [even] unto the edge of the sea of Chinnereth on the other side Jordan eastward."






6 13 28 "This [is] the inheritance of the children of Gad after their families, the cities, and their villages."






6 13 29 And Moses gave [inheritance] unto the half tribe of Manasseh: and [this] was [the possession] of the half tribe of the children of Manasseh by their families.






6 13 30 "And their coast was from Mahanaim, all Bashan, all the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, and all the towns of Jair, which [are] in Bashan, threescore cities:"






6 13 31 "And half Gilead, and Ashtaroth, and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan, [were pertaining] unto the children of Machir the son of Manasseh, [even] to the one half of the children of Machir by their families."






6 13 32 "These [are the countries] which Moses did distribute for inheritance in the plains of Moab, on the other side Jordan, by Jericho, eastward."






6 13 33 "But unto the tribe of Levi Moses gave not [any] inheritance: the LORD God of Israel [was] their inheritance, as he said unto them."






6 14 1 "And these [are the countries] which the children of Israel inherited in the land of Canaan, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, distributed for inheritance to them."






6 14 2 "By lot [was] their inheritance, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses, for the nine tribes, and [for] the half tribe."






6 14 3 For Moses had given the inheritance of two tribes and an half tribe on the other side Jordan: but unto the Levites he gave none inheritance among them.






6 14 4 "For the children of Joseph were two tribes, Manasseh and Ephraim: therefore they gave no part unto the Levites in the land, save cities to dwell [in], with their suburbs for their cattle and for their substance."






6 14 5 "As the LORD commanded Moses, so the children of Israel did, and they divided the land."






6 14 6 "Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea."






6 14 7 Forty years old [was] I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as [it was] in mine heart.






6 14 8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God.






6 14 9 "And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God."






6 14 10 "And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while [the children of] Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I [am] this day fourscore and five years old."






6 14 11 "As yet I [am as] strong this day as [I was] in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength [was] then, even so [is] my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in."






6 14 12 "Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims [were] there, and [that] the cities [were] great [and] fenced: if so be the LORD [will be] with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said."






6 14 13 "And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance."






6 14 14 "Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel."






6 14 15 And the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba; [which Arba was] a great man among the Anakims. And the land had rest from war.






6 15 1 [This] then was the lot of the tribe of the children of Judah by their families; [even] to the border of Edom the wilderness of Zin southward [was] the uttermost part of the south coast.






6 15 2 "And their south border was from the shore of the salt sea, from the bay that looketh southward:"






6 15 3 "And it went out to the south side to Maalehacrabbim, and passed along to Zin, and ascended up on the south side unto Kadeshbarnea, and passed along to Hezron, and went up to Adar, and fetched a compass to Karkaa:"






6 15 4 "[From thence] it passed toward Azmon, and went out unto the river of Egypt; and the goings out of that coast were at the sea: this shall be your south coast."






6 15 5 "And the east border [was] the salt sea, [even] unto the end of Jordan. And [their] border in the north quarter [was] from the bay of the sea at the uttermost part of Jordan:"






6 15 6 "And the border went up to Bethhogla, and passed along by the north of Betharabah; and the border went up to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben:"






6 15 7 "And the border went up toward Debir from the valley of Achor, and so northward, looking toward Gilgal, that [is] before the going up to Adummim, which [is] on the south side of the river: and the border passed toward the waters of Enshemesh, and the goings out thereof were at Enrogel:"






6 15 8 "And the border went up by the valley of the son of Hinnom unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same [is] Jerusalem: and the border went up to the top of the mountain that [lieth] before the valley of Hinnom westward, which [is] at the end of the valley of the giants northward:"






6 15 9 "And the border was drawn from the top of the hill unto the fountain of the water of Nephtoah, and went out to the cities of mount Ephron; and the border was drawn to Baalah, which [is] Kirjathjearim:"






6 15 10 "And the border compassed from Baalah westward unto mount Seir, and passed along unto the side of mount Jearim, which [is] Chesalon, on the north side, and went down to Bethshemesh, and passed on to Timnah:"






6 15 11 "And the border went out unto the side of Ekron northward: and the border was drawn to Shicron, and passed along to mount Baalah, and went out unto Jabneel; and the goings out of the border were at the sea."






6 15 12 "And the west border [was] to the great sea, and the coast [thereof]. This [is] the coast of the children of Judah round about according to their families."






6 15 13 "And unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh he gave a part among the children of Judah, according to the commandment of the LORD to Joshua, [even] the city of Arba the father of Anak, which [city is] Hebron."






6 15 14 "And Caleb drove thence the three sons of Anak, Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai, the children of Anak."






6 15 15 And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before [was] Kirjathsepher.






6 15 16 "And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife."






6 15 17 "And Othniel the son of Kenaz, the brother of Caleb, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife."






6 15 18 "And it came to pass, as she came [unto him], that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted off [her] ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wouldest thou?"






6 15 19 "Who answered, Give me a blessing; for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave her the upper springs, and the nether springs."






6 15 20 This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Judah according to their families.






6 15 21 "And the uttermost cities of the tribe of the children of Judah toward the coast of Edom southward were Kabzeel, and Eder, and Jagur,"






6 15 22 "And Kinah, and Dimonah, and Adadah,"






6 15 23 "And Kedesh, and Hazor, and Ithnan,"






6 15 24 "Ziph, and Telem, and Bealoth,"






6 15 25 "And Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, [and] Hezron, which [is] Hazor,"






6 15 26 "Amam, and Shema, and Moladah,"






6 15 27 "And Hazargaddah, and Heshmon, and Bethpalet,"






6 15 28 "And Hazarshual, and Beersheba, and Bizjothjah,"






6 15 29 "Baalah, and Iim, and Azem,"






6 15 30 "And Eltolad, and Chesil, and Hormah,"






6 15 31 "And Ziklag, and Madmannah, and Sansannah,"






6 15 32 "And Lebaoth, and Shilhim, and Ain, and Rimmon: all the cities [are] twenty and nine, with their villages:"






6 15 33 "[And] in the valley, Eshtaol, and Zoreah, and Ashnah,"






6 15 34 "And Zanoah, and Engannim, Tappuah, and Enam,"






6 15 35 "Jarmuth, and Adullam, Socoh, and Azekah,"






6 15 36 "And Sharaim, and Adithaim, and Gederah, and Gederothaim; fourteen cities with their villages:"






6 15 37 "Zenan, and Hadashah, and Migdalgad,"






6 15 38 "And Dilean, and Mizpeh, and Joktheel,"






6 15 39 "Lachish, and Bozkath, and Eglon,"






6 15 40 "And Cabbon, and Lahmam, and Kithlish,"






6 15 41 "And Gederoth, Bethdagon, and Naamah, and Makkedah; sixteen cities with their villages:"






6 15 42 "Libnah, and Ether, and Ashan,"






6 15 43 "And Jiphtah, and Ashnah, and Nezib,"






6 15 44 "And Keilah, and Achzib, and Mareshah; nine cities with their villages:"






6 15 45 "Ekron, with her towns and her villages:"






6 15 46 "From Ekron even unto the sea, all that [lay] near Ashdod, with their villages:"






6 15 47 "Ashdod with her towns and her villages, Gaza with her towns and her villages, unto the river of Egypt, and the great sea, and the border [thereof]:"






6 15 48 "And in the mountains, Shamir, and Jattir, and Socoh,"






6 15 49 "And Dannah, and Kirjathsannah, which [is] Debir,"






6 15 50 "And Anab, and Eshtemoh, and Anim,"






6 15 51 "And Goshen, and Holon, and Giloh; eleven cities with their villages:"






6 15 52 "Arab, and Dumah, and Eshean,"






6 15 53 "And Janum, and Bethtappuah, and Aphekah,"






6 15 54 "And Humtah, and Kirjatharba, which [is] Hebron, and Zior; nine cities with their villages:"






6 15 55 "Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Juttah,"






6 15 56 "And Jezreel, and Jokdeam, and Zanoah,"






6 15 57 "Cain, Gibeah, and Timnah; ten cities with their villages:"






6 15 58 "Halhul, Bethzur, and Gedor,"






6 15 59 "And Maarath, and Bethanoth, and Eltekon; six cities with their villages:"






6 15 60 "Kirjathbaal, which [is] Kirjathjearim, and Rabbah; two cities with their villages:"






6 15 61 "In the wilderness, Betharabah, Middin, and Secacah,"






6 15 62 "And Nibshan, and the city of Salt, and Engedi; six cities with their villages."






6 15 63 "As for the Jebusites the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the children of Judah could not drive them out: but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Judah at Jerusalem unto this day."






6 16 1 "And the lot of the children of Joseph fell from Jordan by Jericho, unto the water of Jericho on the east, to the wilderness that goeth up from Jericho throughout mount Bethel,"






6 16 2 "And goeth out from Bethel to Luz, and passeth along unto the borders of Archi to Ataroth,"






6 16 3 "And goeth down westward to the coast of Japhleti, unto the coast of Bethhoron the nether, and to Gezer: and the goings out thereof are at the sea."






6 16 4 "So the children of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim, took their inheritance."






6 16 5 "And the border of the children of Ephraim according to their families was [thus]: even the border of their inheritance on the east side was Atarothaddar, unto Bethhoron the upper;"






6 16 6 "And the border went out toward the sea to Michmethah on the north side; and the border went about eastward unto Taanathshiloh, and passed by it on the east to Janohah;"






6 16 7 "And it went down from Janohah to Ataroth, and to Naarath, and came to Jericho, and went out at Jordan."






6 16 8 The border went out from Tappuah westward unto the river Kanah; and the goings out thereof were at the sea. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Ephraim by their families.






6 16 9 "And the separate cities for the children of Ephraim [were] among the inheritance of the children of Manasseh, all the cities with their villages."






6 16 10 "And they drave not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer: but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute."






6 17 1 "There was also a lot for the tribe of Manasseh; for he [was] the firstborn of Joseph; [to wit], for Machir the firstborn of Manasseh, the father of Gilead: because he was a man of war, therefore he had Gilead and Bashan."






6 17 2 "There was also [a lot] for the rest of the children of Manasseh by their 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."






6 17 3 "But Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, had no sons, but daughters: and these [are] the names of his daughters, Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah."






6 17 4 "And they came near before Eleazar the priest, and before Joshua the son of Nun, and before the princes, saying, The LORD commanded Moses to give us an inheritance among our brethren. Therefore according to the commandment of the LORD he gave them an inheritance among the brethren of their father."






6 17 5 "And there fell ten portions to Manasseh, beside the land of Gilead and Bashan, which [were] on the other side Jordan;"






6 17 6 Because the daughters of Manasseh had an inheritance among his sons: and the rest of Manasseh's sons had the land of Gilead.






6 17 7 "And the coast of Manasseh was from Asher to Michmethah, that [lieth] before Shechem; and the border went along on the right hand unto the inhabitants of Entappuah."






6 17 8 [Now] Manasseh had the land of Tappuah: but Tappuah on the border of Manasseh [belonged] to the children of Ephraim;






6 17 9 "And the coast descended unto the river Kanah, southward of the river: these cities of Ephraim [are] among the cities of Manasseh: the coast of Manasseh also [was] on the north side of the river, and the outgoings of it were at the sea:"






6 17 10 "Southward [it was] Ephraim's, and northward [it was] Manasseh's, and the sea is his border; and they met together in Asher on the north, and in Issachar on the east."






6 17 11 "And Manasseh had in Issachar and in Asher Bethshean and her towns, and Ibleam and her towns, and the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Endor and her towns, and the inhabitants of Taanach and her towns, and the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns, [even] three countries."






6 17 12 Yet the children of Manasseh could not drive out [the inhabitants of] those cities; but the Canaanites would dwell in that land.






6 17 13 "Yet it came to pass, when the children of Israel were waxen strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute; but did not utterly drive them out."






6 17 14 "And the children of Joseph spake unto Joshua, saying, Why hast thou given me [but] one lot and one portion to inherit, seeing I [am] a great people, forasmuch as the LORD hath blessed me hitherto?"






6 17 15 "And Joshua answered them, If thou [be] a great people, [then] get thee up to the wood [country], and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee."






6 17 16 "And the children of Joseph said, The hill is not enough for us: and all the Canaanites that dwell in the land of the valley have chariots of iron, [both they] who [are] of Bethshean and her towns, and [they] who [are] of the valley of Jezreel."






6 17 17 "And Joshua spake unto the house of Joseph, [even] to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying, Thou [art] a great people, and hast great power: thou shalt not have one lot [only]:"






6 17 18 "But the mountain shall be thine; for it [is] a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, [and] though they [be] strong."






6 18 1 "And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them."






6 18 2 "And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance."






6 18 3 "And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long [are] ye slack to go to possess the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given you?"






6 18 4 "Give out from among you three men for [each] tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go through the land, and describe it according to the inheritance of them; and they shall come [again] to me."






6 18 5 "And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph shall abide in their coasts on the north."






6 18 6 "Ye shall therefore describe the land [into] seven parts, and bring [the description] hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here before the LORD our God."






6 18 7 "But the Levites have no part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD [is] their inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them."






6 18 8 "And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in Shiloh."






6 18 9 "And the men went and passed through the land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book, and came [again] to Joshua to the host at Shiloh."






6 18 10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their divisions.






6 18 11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the children of Joseph.






6 18 12 "And their border on the north side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of Jericho on the north side, and went up through the mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the wilderness of Bethaven."






6 18 13 "And the border went over from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which [is] Bethel, southward; and the border descended to Atarothadar, near the hill that [lieth] on the south side of the nether Bethhoron."






6 18 14 "And the border was drawn [thence], and compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill that [lieth] before Bethhoron southward; and the goings out thereof were at Kirjathbaal, which [is] Kirjathjearim, a city of the children of Judah: this [was] the west quarter."






6 18 15 "And the south quarter [was] from the end of Kirjathjearim, and the border went out on the west, and went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah:"






6 18 16 "And the border came down to the end of the mountain that [lieth] before the valley of the son of Hinnom, [and] which [is] in the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and descended to Enrogel,"






6 18 17 "And was drawn from the north, and went forth to Enshemesh, and went forth toward Geliloth, which [is] over against the going up of Adummim, and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,"






6 18 18 "And passed along toward the side over against Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah:"






6 18 19 And the border passed along to the side of Bethhoglah northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this [was] the south coast.






6 18 20 "And Jordan was the border of it on the east side. This [was] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to their families."






6 18 21 "Now the cities of the tribe of the children of Benjamin according to their families were Jericho, and Bethhoglah, and the valley of Keziz,"






6 18 22 "And Betharabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel,"






6 18 23 "And Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah,"






6 18 24 "And Chepharhaammonai, and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their villages:"






6 18 25 "Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth,"






6 18 26 "And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah,"






6 18 27 "And Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah,"






6 18 28 "And Zelah, Eleph, and Jebusi, which [is] Jerusalem, Gibeath, [and] Kirjath; fourteen cities with their villages. This [is] the inheritance of the children of Benjamin according to their families."






6 19 1 "And the second lot came forth to Simeon, [even] for the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families: and their inheritance was within the inheritance of the children of Judah."






6 19 2 "And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, or Sheba, and Moladah,"






6 19 3 "And Hazarshual, and Balah, and Azem,"






6 19 4 "And Eltolad, and Bethul, and Hormah,"






6 19 5 "And Ziklag, and Bethmarcaboth, and Hazarsusah,"






6 19 6 "And Bethlebaoth, and Sharuhen; thirteen cities and their villages:"






6 19 7 "Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four cities and their villages:"






6 19 8 "And all the villages that [were] round about these cities to Baalathbeer, Ramath of the south. This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Simeon according to their families."






6 19 9 Out of the portion of the children of Judah [was] the inheritance of the children of Simeon: for the part of the children of Judah was too much for them: therefore the children of Simeon had their inheritance within the inheritance of them.






6 19 10 And the third lot came up for the children of Zebulun according to their families: and the border of their inheritance was unto Sarid:






6 19 11 "And their border went up toward the sea, and Maralah, and reached to Dabbasheth, and reached to the river that [is] before Jokneam;"






6 19 12 "And turned from Sarid eastward toward the sunrising unto the border of Chislothtabor, and then goeth out to Daberath, and goeth up to Japhia,"






6 19 13 "And from thence passeth on along on the east to Gittahhepher, to Ittahkazin, and goeth out to Remmonmethoar to Neah;"






6 19 14 And the border compasseth it on the north side to Hannathon: and the outgoings thereof are in the valley of Jiphthahel:






6 19 15 "And Kattath, and Nahallal, and Shimron, and Idalah, and Bethlehem: twelve cities with their villages."






6 19 16 "This [is] the inheritance of the children of Zebulun according to their families, these cities with their villages."






6 19 17 "[And] the fourth lot came out to Issachar, for the children of Issachar according to their families."






6 19 18 "And their border was toward Jezreel, and Chesulloth, and Shunem,"






6 19 19 "And Hapharaim, and Shion, and Anaharath,"






6 19 20 "And Rabbith, and Kishion, and Abez,"






6 19 21 "And Remeth, and Engannim, and Enhaddah, and Bethpazzez;"






6 19 22 "And the coast reacheth to Tabor, and Shahazimah, and Bethshemesh; and the outgoings of their border were at Jordan: sixteen cities with their villages."






6 19 23 "This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Issachar according to their families, the cities and their villages."






6 19 24 And the fifth lot came out for the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families.






6 19 25 "And their border was Helkath, and Hali, and Beten, and Achshaph,"






6 19 26 "And Alammelech, and Amad, and Misheal; and reacheth to Carmel westward, and to Shihorlibnath;"






6 19 27 "And turneth toward the sunrising to Bethdagon, and reacheth to Zebulun, and to the valley of Jiphthahel toward the north side of Bethemek, and Neiel, and goeth out to Cabul on the left hand,"






6 19 28 "And Hebron, and Rehob, and Hammon, and Kanah, [even] unto great Zidon;"






6 19 29 "And [then] the coast turneth to Ramah, and to the strong city Tyre; and the coast turneth to Hosah; and the outgoings thereof are at the sea from the coast to Achzib:"






6 19 30 "Ummah also, and Aphek, and Rehob: twenty and two cities with their villages."






6 19 31 "This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Asher according to their families, these cities with their villages."






6 19 32 "The sixth lot came out to the children of Naphtali, [even] for the children of Naphtali according to their families."






6 19 33 "And their coast was from Heleph, from Allon to Zaanannim, and Adami, Nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakum; and the outgoings thereof were at Jordan:"






6 19 34 "And [then] the coast turneth westward to Aznothtabor, and goeth out from thence to Hukkok, and reacheth to Zebulun on the south side, and reacheth to Asher on the west side, and to Judah upon Jordan toward the sunrising."






6 19 35 "And the fenced cities [are] Ziddim, Zer, and Hammath, Rakkath, and Chinnereth,"






6 19 36 "And Adamah, and Ramah, and Hazor,"






6 19 37 "And Kedesh, and Edrei, and Enhazor,"






6 19 38 "And Iron, and Migdalel, Horem, and Bethanath, and Bethshemesh; nineteen cities with their villages."






6 19 39 "This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Naphtali according to their families, the cities and their villages."






6 19 40 [And] the seventh lot came out for the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families.






6 19 41 "And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,"






6 19 42 "And Shaalabbin, and Ajalon, and Jethlah,"






6 19 43 "And Elon, and Thimnathah, and Ekron,"






6 19 44 "And Eltekeh, and Gibbethon, and Baalath,"






6 19 45 "And Jehud, and Beneberak, and Gathrimmon,"






6 19 46 "And Mejarkon, and Rakkon, with the border before Japho."






6 19 47 "And the coast of the children of Dan went out [too little] for them: therefore the children of Dan went up to fight against Leshem, and took it, and smote it with the edge of the sword, and possessed it, and dwelt therein, and called Leshem, Dan, after the name of Dan their father."






6 19 48 "This [is] the inheritance of the tribe of the children of Dan according to their families, these cities with their villages."






6 19 49 "When they had made an end of dividing the land for inheritance by their coasts, the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun among them:"






6 19 50 "According to the word of the LORD they gave him the city which he asked, [even] Timnathserah in mount Ephraim: and he built the city, and dwelt therein."






6 19 51 "These [are] the inheritances, which Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun, and the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel, divided for an inheritance by lot in Shiloh before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. So they made an end of dividing the country."






6 20 1 "The LORD also spake unto Joshua, saying,"






6 20 2 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:"






6 20 3 That the slayer that killeth [any] person unawares [and] unwittingly may flee thither: and they shall be your refuge from the avenger of blood.






6 20 4 "And when he that doth flee unto one of those cities shall stand at the entering of the gate of the city, and shall declare his cause in the ears of the elders of that city, they shall take him into the city unto them, and give him a place, that he may dwell among them."






6 20 5 "And if the avenger of blood pursue after him, then they shall not deliver the slayer up into his hand; because he smote his neighbour unwittingly, and hated him not beforetime."






6 20 6 "And he shall dwell in that city, until he stand before the congregation for judgment, [and] until the death of the high priest that shall be in those days: then shall the slayer return, and come unto his own city, and unto his own house, unto the city from whence he fled."






6 20 7 "And they appointed Kedesh in Galilee in mount Naphtali, and Shechem in mount Ephraim, and Kirjatharba, which [is] Hebron, in the mountain of Judah."






6 20 8 "And on the other side Jordan by Jericho eastward, they assigned Bezer in the wilderness upon the plain 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."






6 20 9 "These were the cities appointed for all the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them, that whosoever killeth [any] person at unawares might flee thither, and not die by the hand of the avenger of blood, until he stood before the congregation."






6 21 1 "Then came near the heads of the fathers of the Levites unto Eleazar the priest, and unto Joshua the son of Nun, and unto the heads of the fathers of the tribes of the children of Israel;"






6 21 2 "And they spake unto them at Shiloh in the land of Canaan, saying, The LORD commanded by the hand of Moses to give us cities to dwell in, with the suburbs thereof for our cattle."






6 21 3 "And the children of Israel gave unto the Levites out of their inheritance, at the commandment of the LORD, these cities and their suburbs."






6 21 4 "And the lot came out for the families of the Kohathites: and the children of Aaron the priest, [which were] of the Levites, had by lot out of the tribe of Judah, and out of the tribe of Simeon, and out of the tribe of Benjamin, thirteen cities."






6 21 5 "And the rest of the children of Kohath [had] by lot out of the families of the tribe of Ephraim, and out of the tribe of Dan, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh, ten cities."






6 21 6 "And the children of Gershon [had] by lot out of the families of the tribe of Issachar, and out of the tribe of Asher, and out of the tribe of Naphtali, and out of the half tribe of Manasseh in Bashan, thirteen cities."






6 21 7 "The children of Merari by their families [had] out of the tribe of Reuben, and out of the tribe of Gad, and out of the tribe of Zebulun, twelve cities."






6 21 8 "And the children of Israel gave by lot unto the Levites these cities with their suburbs, as the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses."






6 21 9 "And they gave out of the tribe of the children of Judah, and out of the tribe of the children of Simeon, these cities which are [here] mentioned by name,"






6 21 10 "Which the children of Aaron, [being] of the families of the Kohathites, [who were] of the children of Levi, had: for theirs was the first lot."






6 21 11 "And they gave them the city of Arba the father of Anak, which [city is] Hebron, in the hill [country] of Judah, with the suburbs thereof round about it."






6 21 12 "But the fields of the city, and the villages thereof, gave they to Caleb the son of Jephunneh for his possession."






6 21 13 "Thus they gave to the children of Aaron the priest Hebron with her suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Libnah with her suburbs,"






6 21 14 "And Jattir with her suburbs, and Eshtemoa with her suburbs,"






6 21 15 "And Holon with her suburbs, and Debir with her suburbs,"






6 21 16 "And Ain with her suburbs, and Juttah with her suburbs, [and] Bethshemesh with her suburbs; nine cities out of those two tribes."






6 21 17 "And out of the tribe of Benjamin, Gibeon with her suburbs, Geba with her suburbs,"






6 21 18 "Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 19 "All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, [were] thirteen cities with their suburbs."






6 21 20 "And the families of the children of Kohath, the Levites which remained of the children of Kohath, even they had the cities of their lot out of the tribe of Ephraim."






6 21 21 "For they gave them Shechem with her suburbs in mount Ephraim, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Gezer with her suburbs,"






6 21 22 "And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and Bethhoron with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 23 "And out of the tribe of Dan, Eltekeh with her suburbs, Gibbethon with her suburbs,"






6 21 24 "Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 25 "And out of the half tribe of Manasseh, Tanach with her suburbs, and Gathrimmon with her suburbs; two cities."






6 21 26 All the cities [were] ten with their suburbs for the families of the children of Kohath that remained.






6 21 27 "And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, out of the [other] half tribe of Manasseh [they gave] Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities."






6 21 28 "And out of the tribe of Issachar, Kishon with her suburbs, Dabareh with her suburbs,"






6 21 29 "Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 30 "And out of the tribe of Asher, Mishal with her suburbs, Abdon with her suburbs,"






6 21 31 "Helkath with her suburbs, and Rehob with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 32 "And out of the tribe of Naphtali, Kedesh in Galilee with her suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Hammothdor with her suburbs, and Kartan with her suburbs; three cities."






6 21 33 All the cities of the Gershonites according to their families [were] thirteen cities with their suburbs.






6 21 34 "And unto the families of the children of Merari, the rest of the Levites, out of the tribe of Zebulun, Jokneam with her suburbs, and Kartah with her suburbs,"






6 21 35 "Dimnah with her suburbs, Nahalal with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 36 "And out of the tribe of Reuben, Bezer with her suburbs, and Jahazah with her suburbs,"






6 21 37 "Kedemoth with her suburbs, and Mephaath with her suburbs; four cities."






6 21 38 "And out of the tribe of Gad, Ramoth in Gilead with her suburbs, [to be] a city of refuge for the slayer; and Mahanaim with her suburbs,"






6 21 39 "Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with her suburbs; four cities in all."






6 21 40 "So all the cities for the children of Merari by their families, which were remaining of the families of the Levites, were [by] their lot twelve cities."






6 21 41 All the cities of the Levites within the possession of the children of Israel [were] forty and eight cities with their suburbs.






6 21 42 These cities were every one with their suburbs round about them: thus [were] all these cities.






6 21 43 "And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein."






6 21 44 "And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand."






6 21 45 There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass.






6 22 1 "Then Joshua called the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh,"






6 22 2 "And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you:"






6 22 3 "Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God."






6 22 4 "And now the LORD your God hath given rest unto your brethren, as he promised them: therefore now return ye, and get you unto your tents, [and] unto the land of your possession, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you on the other side Jordan."






6 22 5 "But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul."






6 22 6 "So Joshua blessed them, and sent them away: and they went unto their tents."






6 22 7 "Now to the [one] half of the tribe of Manasseh Moses had given [possession] in Bashan: but unto the [other] half thereof gave Joshua among their brethren on this side Jordan westward. And when Joshua sent them away also unto their tents, then he blessed them,"






6 22 8 "And he spake unto them, saying, Return with much riches unto your tents, and with very much cattle, with silver, and with gold, and with brass, and with iron, and with very much raiment: divide the spoil of your enemies with your brethren."






6 22 9 "And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh returned, and departed from the children of Israel out of Shiloh, which [is] in the land of Canaan, to go unto the country of Gilead, to the land of their possession, whereof they were possessed, according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses."






6 22 10 "And when they came unto the borders of Jordan, that [are] in the land of Canaan, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh built there an altar by Jordan, a great altar to see to."






6 22 11 "And the children of Israel heard say, Behold, the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh have built an altar over against the land of Canaan, in the borders of Jordan, at the passage of the children of Israel."






6 22 12 "And when the children of Israel heard [of it], the whole congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go up to war against them."






6 22 13 "And the children of Israel sent unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, into the land of Gilead, Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest,"






6 22 14 "And with him ten princes, of each chief house a prince throughout all the tribes of Israel; and each one [was] an head of the house of their fathers among the thousands of Israel."






6 22 15 "And they came unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the half tribe of Manasseh, unto the land of Gilead, and they spake with them, saying,"






6 22 16 "Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass [is] this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD?"






6 22 17 "[Is] the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD,"






6 22 18 "But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it will be, [seeing] ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel."






6 22 19 "Notwithstanding, if the land of your possession [be] unclean, [then] pass ye over unto the land of the possession of the LORD, wherein the LORD'S tabernacle dwelleth, and take possession among us: but rebel not against the LORD, nor rebel against us, in building you an altar beside the altar of the LORD our God."






6 22 20 "Did not Achan the son of Zerah commit a trespass in the accursed thing, and wrath fell on all the congregation of Israel? and that man perished not alone in his iniquity."






6 22 21 "Then the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh answered, and said unto the heads of the thousands of Israel,"






6 22 22 "The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and Israel he shall know; if [it be] in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day,)"






6 22 23 "That we have built us an altar to turn from following the LORD, or if to offer thereon burnt offering or meat offering, or if to offer peace offerings thereon, let the LORD himself require [it];"






6 22 24 "And if we have not [rather] done it for fear of [this] thing, saying, In time to come your children might speak unto our children, saying, What have ye to do with the LORD God of Israel?"






6 22 25 "For the LORD hath made Jordan a border between us and you, ye children of Reuben and children of Gad; ye have no part in the LORD: so shall your children make our children cease from fearing the LORD."






6 22 26 "Therefore we said, Let us now prepare to build us an altar, not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice:"






6 22 27 "But [that] it [may be] a witness between us, and you, and our generations after us, that we might do the service of the LORD before him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices, and with our peace offerings; that your children may not say to our children in time to come, Ye have no part in the LORD."






6 22 28 "Therefore said we, that it shall be, when they should [so] say to us or to our generations in time to come, that we may say [again], Behold the pattern of the altar of the LORD, which our fathers made, not for burnt offerings, nor for sacrifices; but it [is] a witness between us and you."






6 22 29 "God forbid that we should rebel against the LORD, and turn this day from following the LORD, to build an altar for burnt offerings, for meat offerings, or for sacrifices, beside the altar of the LORD our God that [is] before his tabernacle."






6 22 30 "And when Phinehas the priest, and the princes of the congregation and heads of the thousands of Israel which [were] with him, heard the words that the children of Reuben and the children of Gad and the children of Manasseh spake, it pleased them."






6 22 31 "And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest said unto the children of Reuben, and to the children of Gad, and to the children of Manasseh, This day we perceive that the LORD [is] among us, because ye have not committed this trespass against the LORD: now ye have delivered the children of Israel out of the hand of the LORD."






6 22 32 "And Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, and the princes, returned from the children of Reuben, and from the children of Gad, out of the land of Gilead, unto the land of Canaan, to the children of Israel, and brought them word again."






6 22 33 "And the thing pleased the children of Israel; and the children of Israel blessed God, and did not intend to go up against them in battle, to destroy the land wherein the children of Reuben and Gad dwelt."






6 22 34 And the children of Reuben and the children of Gad called the altar [Ed]: for it [shall be] a witness between us that the LORD [is] God.






6 23 1 "And it came to pass a long time after that the LORD had given rest unto Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua waxed old [and] stricken in age."






6 23 2 "And Joshua called for all Israel, [and] for their elders, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers, and said unto them, I am old [and] stricken in age:"






6 23 3 And ye have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto all these nations because of you; for the LORD your God [is] he that hath fought for you.






6 23 4 "Behold, I have divided unto you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off, even unto the great sea westward."






6 23 5 "And the LORD your God, he shall expel them from before you, and drive them from out of your sight; and ye shall possess their land, as the LORD your God hath promised unto you."






6 23 6 "Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom [to] the right hand or [to] the left;"






6 23 7 "That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause to swear [by them], neither serve them, nor bow yourselves unto them:"






6 23 8 "But cleave unto the LORD your God, as ye have done unto this day."






6 23 9 "For the LORD hath driven out from before you great nations and strong: but [as for] you, no man hath been able to stand before you unto this day."






6 23 10 "One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he [it is] that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you."






6 23 11 "Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God."






6 23 12 "Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, [even] these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you:"






6 23 13 "Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out [any of] these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you."






6 23 14 "And, behold, this day I [am] going the way of all the earth: and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the LORD your God spake concerning you; all are come to pass unto you, [and] not one thing hath failed thereof."






6 23 15 "Therefore it shall come to pass, [that] as all good things are come upon you, which the LORD your God promised you; so shall the LORD bring upon you all evil things, until he have destroyed you from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you."






6 23 16 "When ye have transgressed the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and have gone and served other gods, and bowed yourselves to them; then shall the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and ye shall perish quickly from off the good land which he hath given unto you."






6 24 1 "And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God."






6 24 2 "And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, [even] Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods."






6 24 3 "And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac."






6 24 4 "And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt."






6 24 5 "I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out."






6 24 6 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.






6 24 7 "And when they cried unto the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season."






6 24 8 "And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you."






6 24 9 "Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:"






6 24 10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.






6 24 11 "And ye went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand."






6 24 12 "And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, [even] the two kings of the Amorites; [but] not with thy sword, nor with thy bow."






6 24 13 "And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat."






6 24 14 "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD."






6 24 15 "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."






6 24 16 "And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;"






6 24 17 "For the LORD our God, he [it is] that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:"






6 24 18 "And the LORD drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: [therefore] will we also serve the LORD; for he [is] our God."






6 24 19 "And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he [is] an holy God; he [is] a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins."






6 24 20 "If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good."






6 24 21 "And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the LORD."






6 24 22 "And Joshua said unto the people, Ye [are] witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the LORD, to serve him. And they said, [We are] witnesses."






6 24 23 "Now therefore put away, [said he], the strange gods which [are] among you, and incline your heart unto the LORD God of Israel."






6 24 24 "And the people said unto Joshua, The LORD our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey."






6 24 25 "So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem."






6 24 26 "And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that [was] by the sanctuary of the LORD."






6 24 27 "And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the LORD which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God."






6 24 28 "So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance."






6 24 29 "And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, [being] an hundred and ten years old."






6 24 30 "And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which [is] in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash."






6 24 31 "And Israel served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the LORD, that he had done for Israel."






6 24 32 "And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph."






6 24 33 "And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a hill [that pertained to] Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim."

7 1 1 "Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them?"






7 1 2 "And the LORD said, Judah shall go up: behold, I have delivered the land into his hand."






7 1 3 "And Judah said unto Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my lot, that we may fight against the Canaanites; and I likewise will go with thee into thy lot. So Simeon went with him."






7 1 4 And Judah went up; and the LORD delivered the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hand: and they slew of them in Bezek ten thousand men.






7 1 5 "And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites."






7 1 6 "But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes."






7 1 7 "And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered [their meat] under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died."






7 1 8 "Now the children of Judah had fought against Jerusalem, and had taken it, and smitten it with the edge of the sword, and set the city on fire."






7 1 9 "And afterward the children of Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites, that dwelt in the mountain, and in the south, and in the valley."






7 1 10 "And Judah went against the Canaanites that dwelt in Hebron: (now the name of Hebron before [was] Kirjatharba:) and they slew Sheshai, and Ahiman, and Talmai."






7 1 11 And from thence he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before [was] Kirjathsepher:






7 1 12 "And Caleb said, He that smiteth Kirjathsepher, and taketh it, to him will I give Achsah my daughter to wife."






7 1 13 "And Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother, took it: and he gave him Achsah his daughter to wife."






7 1 14 "And it came to pass, when she came [to him], that she moved him to ask of her father a field: and she lighted from off [her] ass; and Caleb said unto her, What wilt thou?"






7 1 15 "And she said unto him, Give me a blessing: for thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And Caleb gave her the upper springs and the nether springs."






7 1 16 "And the children of the Kenite, Moses' father in law, went up out of the city of palm trees with the children of Judah into the wilderness of Judah, which [lieth] in the south of Arad; and they went and dwelt among the people."






7 1 17 "And Judah went with Simeon his brother, and they slew the Canaanites that inhabited Zephath, and utterly destroyed it. And the name of the city was called Hormah."






7 1 18 "Also Judah took Gaza with the coast thereof, and Askelon with the coast thereof, and Ekron with the coast thereof."






7 1 19 "And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out [the inhabitants of] the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron."






7 1 20 "And they gave Hebron unto Caleb, as Moses said: and he expelled thence the three sons of Anak."






7 1 21 And the children of Benjamin did not drive out the Jebusites that inhabited Jerusalem; but the Jebusites dwell with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem unto this day.






7 1 22 "And the house of Joseph, they also went up against Bethel: and the LORD [was] with them."






7 1 23 And the house of Joseph sent to descry Bethel. (Now the name of the city before [was] Luz.)






7 1 24 "And the spies saw a man come forth out of the city, and they said unto him, Shew us, we pray thee, the entrance into the city, and we will shew thee mercy."






7 1 25 "And when he shewed them the entrance into the city, they smote the city with the edge of the sword; but they let go the man and all his family."






7 1 26 "And the man went into the land of the Hittites, and built a city, and called the name thereof Luz: which [is] the name thereof unto this day."






7 1 27 "Neither did Manasseh drive out [the inhabitants of] Bethshean and her towns, nor Taanach and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Dor and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Ibleam and her towns, nor the inhabitants of Megiddo and her towns: but the Canaanites would dwell in that land."






7 1 28 "And it came to pass, when Israel was strong, that they put the Canaanites to tribute, and did not utterly drive them out."






7 1 29 Neither did Ephraim drive out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer; but the Canaanites dwelt in Gezer among them.






7 1 30 "Neither did Zebulun drive out the inhabitants of Kitron, nor the inhabitants of Nahalol; but the Canaanites dwelt among them, and became tributaries."






7 1 31 "Neither did Asher drive out the inhabitants of Accho, nor the inhabitants of Zidon, nor of Ahlab, nor of Achzib, nor of Helbah, nor of Aphik, nor of Rehob:"






7 1 32 "But the Asherites dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: for they did not drive them out."






7 1 33 "Neither did Naphtali drive out the inhabitants of Bethshemesh, nor the inhabitants of Bethanath; but he dwelt among the Canaanites, the inhabitants of the land: nevertheless the inhabitants of Bethshemesh and of Bethanath became tributaries unto them."






7 1 34 And the Amorites forced the children of Dan into the mountain: for they would not suffer them to come down to the valley:






7 1 35 "But the Amorites would dwell in mount Heres in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim: yet the hand of the house of Joseph prevailed, so that they became tributaries."






7 1 36 "And the coast of the Amorites [was] from the going up to Akrabbim, from the rock, and upward."






7 2 1 "And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you."






7 2 2 And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?






7 2 3 "Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be [as thorns] in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you."






7 2 4 "And it came to pass, when the angel of the LORD spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept."






7 2 5 And they called the name of that place Bochim: and they sacrificed there unto the LORD.






7 2 6 "And when Joshua had let the people go, the children of Israel went every man unto his inheritance to possess the land."






7 2 7 "And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel."






7 2 8 "And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, [being] an hundred and ten years old."






7 2 9 "And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash."






7 2 10 "And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel."






7 2 11 "And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:"






7 2 12 "And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that [were] round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger."






7 2 13 "And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth."






7 2 14 "And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies."






7 2 15 "Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed."






7 2 16 "Nevertheless the LORD raised up judges, which delivered them out of the hand of those that spoiled them."






7 2 17 "And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; [but] they did not so."






7 2 18 "And when the LORD raised them up judges, then the LORD was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge: for it repented the LORD because of their groanings by reason of them that oppressed them and vexed them."






7 2 19 "And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, [that] they returned, and corrupted [themselves] more than their fathers, in following other gods to serve them, and to bow down unto them; they ceased not from their own doings, nor from their stubborn way."






7 2 20 "And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel; and he said, Because that this people hath transgressed my covenant which I commanded their fathers, and have not hearkened unto my voice;"






7 2 21 I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died:






7 2 22 "That through them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep the way of the LORD to walk therein, as their fathers did keep [it], or not."






7 2 23 "Therefore the LORD left those nations, without driving them out hastily; neither delivered he them into the hand of Joshua."






7 3 1 "Now these [are] the nations which the LORD left, to prove Israel by them, [even] as many [of Israel] as had not known all the wars of Canaan;"






7 3 2 "Only that the generations of the children of Israel might know, to teach them war, at the least such as before knew nothing thereof;"






7 3 3 "[Namely], five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath."






7 3 4 "And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses."






7 3 5 "And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:"






7 3 6 "And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods."






7 3 7 "And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves."






7 3 8 "Therefore the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he sold them into the hand of Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia: and the children of Israel served Chushanrishathaim eight years."






7 3 9 "And when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, [even] Othniel the son of Kenaz, Caleb's younger brother."






7 3 10 "And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim."






7 3 11 And the land had rest forty years. And Othniel the son of Kenaz died.






7 3 12 "And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD strengthened Eglon the king of Moab against Israel, because they had done evil in the sight of the LORD."






7 3 13 "And he gathered unto him the children of Ammon and Amalek, and went and smote Israel, and possessed the city of palm trees."






7 3 14 So the children of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.






7 3 15 "But when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD, the LORD raised them up a deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a man lefthanded: and by him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the king of Moab."






7 3 16 "But Ehud made him a dagger which had two edges, of a cubit length; and he did gird it under his raiment upon his right thigh."






7 3 17 And he brought the present unto Eglon king of Moab: and Eglon [was] a very fat man.






7 3 18 "And when he had made an end to offer the present, he sent away the people that bare the present."






7 3 19 "But he himself turned again from the quarries that [were] by Gilgal, and said, I have a secret errand unto thee, O king: who said, Keep silence. And all that stood by him went out from him."






7 3 20 "And Ehud came unto him; and he was sitting in a summer parlour, which he had for himself alone. And Ehud said, I have a message from God unto thee. And he arose out of [his] seat."






7 3 21 "And Ehud put forth his left hand, and took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly:"






7 3 22 "And the haft also went in after the blade; and the fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came out."






7 3 23 "Then Ehud went forth through the porch, and shut the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them."






7 3 24 "When he was gone out, his servants came; and when they saw that, behold, the doors of the parlour [were] locked, they said, Surely he covereth his feet in his summer chamber."






7 3 25 "And they tarried till they were ashamed: and, behold, he opened not the doors of the parlour; therefore they took a key, and opened [them]: and, behold, their lord [was] fallen down dead on the earth."






7 3 26 "And Ehud escaped while they tarried, and passed beyond the quarries, and escaped unto Seirath."






7 3 27 "And it came to pass, when he was come, that he blew a trumpet in the mountain of Ephraim, and the children of Israel went down with him from the mount, and he before them."






7 3 28 "And he said unto them, Follow after me: for the LORD hath delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand. And they went down after him, and took the fords of Jordan toward Moab, and suffered not a man to pass over."






7 3 29 "And they slew of Moab at that time about ten thousand men, all lusty, and all men of valour; and there escaped not a man."






7 3 30 So Moab was subdued that day under the hand of Israel. And the land had rest fourscore years.






7 3 31 "And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel."






7 4 1 "And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD, when Ehud was dead."






7 4 2 "And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host [was] Sisera, which dwelt in Harosheth of the Gentiles."






7 4 3 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the children of Israel.






7 4 4 "And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time."






7 4 5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment.






7 4 6 "And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel commanded, [saying], Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?"






7 4 7 "And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand."






7 4 8 "And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, [then] I will not go."






7 4 9 "And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh."






7 4 10 And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; and he went up with ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him.






7 4 11 "Now Heber the Kenite, [which was] of the children of Hobab the father in law of Moses, had severed himself from the Kenites, and pitched his tent unto the plain of Zaanaim, which [is] by Kedesh."






7 4 12 And they shewed Sisera that Barak the son of Abinoam was gone up to mount Tabor.






7 4 13 "And Sisera gathered together all his chariots, [even] nine hundred chariots of iron, and all the people that [were] with him, from Harosheth of the Gentiles unto the river of Kishon."






7 4 14 "And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this [is] the day in which the LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the LORD gone out before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men after him."






7 4 15 "And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all [his] chariots, and all [his] host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted down off [his] chariot, and fled away on his feet."






7 4 16 "But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the edge of the sword; [and] there was not a man left."






7 4 17 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite: for [there was] peace between Jabin the king of Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.






7 4 18 "And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into the tent, she covered him with a mantle."






7 4 19 "And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him drink, and covered him."






7 4 20 "Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is there any man here? that thou shalt say, No."






7 4 21 "Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died."






7 4 22 "And, behold, as Barak pursued Sisera, Jael came out to meet him, and said unto him, Come, and I will shew thee the man whom thou seekest. And when he came into her [tent], behold, Sisera lay dead, and the nail [was] in his temples."






7 4 23 So God subdued on that day Jabin the king of Canaan before the children of Israel.






7 4 24 "And the hand of the children of Israel prospered, and prevailed against Jabin the king of Canaan, until they had destroyed Jabin king of Canaan."






7 5 1 "Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam on that day, saying,"






7 5 2 "Praise ye the LORD for the avenging of Israel, when the people willingly offered themselves."






7 5 3 "Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, [even] I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing [praise] to the LORD God of Israel."






7 5 4 "LORD, when thou wentest out of Seir, when thou marchedst out of the field of Edom, the earth trembled, and the heavens dropped, the clouds also dropped water."






7 5 5 "The mountains melted from before the LORD, [even] that Sinai from before the LORD God of Israel."






7 5 6 "In the days of Shamgar the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were unoccupied, and the travellers walked through byways."






7 5 7 "[The inhabitants of] the villages ceased, they ceased in Israel, until that I Deborah arose, that I arose a mother in Israel."






7 5 8 They chose new gods; then [was] war in the gates: was there a shield or spear seen among forty thousand in Israel?






7 5 9 "My heart [is] toward the governors of Israel, that offered themselves willingly among the people. Bless ye the LORD."






7 5 10 "Speak, ye that ride on white asses, ye that sit in judgment, and walk by the way."






7 5 11 "[They that are delivered] from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD, [even] the righteous acts [toward the inhabitants] of his villages in Israel: then shall the people of the LORD go down to the gates."






7 5 12 "Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam."






7 5 13 Then he made him that remaineth have dominion over the nobles among the people: the LORD made me have dominion over the mighty.






7 5 14 "Out of Ephraim [was there] a root of them against Amalek; after thee, Benjamin, among thy people; out of Machir came down governors, and out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer."






7 5 15 "And the princes of Issachar [were] with Deborah; even Issachar, and also Barak: he was sent on foot into the valley. For the divisions of Reuben [there were] great thoughts of heart."






7 5 16 "Why abodest thou among the sheepfolds, to hear the bleatings of the flocks? For the divisions of Reuben [there were] great searchings of heart."






7 5 17 "Gilead abode beyond Jordan: and why did Dan remain in ships? Asher continued on the sea shore, and abode in his breaches."






7 5 18 Zebulun and Naphtali [were] a people [that] jeoparded their lives unto the death in the high places of the field.






7 5 19 "The kings came [and] fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo; they took no gain of money."






7 5 20 They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera.






7 5 21 "The river of Kishon swept them away, that ancient river, the river Kishon. O my soul, thou hast trodden down strength."






7 5 22 "Then were the horsehoofs broken by the means of the pransings, the pransings of their mighty ones."






7 5 23 "Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof; because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty."






7 5 24 "Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent."






7 5 25 "He asked water, [and] she gave [him] milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly dish."






7 5 26 "She put her hand to the nail, and her right hand to the workmen's hammer; and with the hammer she smote Sisera, she smote off his head, when she had pierced and stricken through his temples."






7 5 27 "At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he fell: where he bowed, there he fell down dead."






7 5 28 "The mother of Sisera looked out at a window, and cried through the lattice, Why is his chariot [so] long in coming? why tarry the wheels of his chariots?"






7 5 29 "Her wise ladies answered her, yea, she returned answer to herself,"






7 5 30 "Have they not sped? have they [not] divided the prey; to every man a damsel [or] two; to Sisera a prey of divers colours, a prey of divers colours of needlework, of divers colours of needlework on both sides, [meet] for the necks of [them that take] the spoil?"






7 5 31 "So let all thine enemies perish, O LORD: but [let] them that love him [be] as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years."






7 6 1 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.






7 6 2 "And the hand of Midian prevailed against Israel: [and] because of the Midianites the children of Israel made them the dens which [are] in the mountains, and caves, and strong holds."






7 6 3 "And [so] it was, when Israel had sown, that the Midianites came up, and the Amalekites, and the children of the east, even they came up against them;"






7 6 4 "And they encamped against them, and destroyed the increase of the earth, till thou come unto Gaza, and left no sustenance for Israel, neither sheep, nor ox, nor ass."






7 6 5 "For they came up with their cattle and their tents, and they came as grasshoppers for multitude; [for] both they and their camels were without number: and they entered into the land to destroy it."






7 6 6 And Israel was greatly impoverished because of the Midianites; and the children of Israel cried unto the LORD.






7 6 7 "And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the LORD because of the Midianites,"






7 6 8 "That the LORD sent a prophet unto the children of Israel, which said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you forth out of the house of bondage;"






7 6 9 "And I delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all that oppressed you, and drave them out from before you, and gave you their land;"






7 6 10 "And I said unto you, I [am] the LORD your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice."






7 6 11 "And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which [was] in Ophrah, that [pertained] unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide [it] from the Midianites."






7 6 12 "And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD [is] with thee, thou mighty man of valour."






7 6 13 "And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where [be] all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites."






7 6 14 "And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?"






7 6 15 "And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family [is] poor in Manasseh, and I [am] the least in my father's house."






7 6 16 "And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man."






7 6 17 "And he said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight, then shew me a sign that thou talkest with me."






7 6 18 "Depart not hence, I pray thee, until I come unto thee, and bring forth my present, and set [it] before thee. And he said, I will tarry until thou come again."






7 6 19 "And Gideon went in, and made ready a kid, and unleavened cakes of an ephah of flour: the flesh he put in a basket, and he put the broth in a pot, and brought [it] out unto him under the oak, and presented [it]."






7 6 20 "And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay [them] upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so."






7 6 21 "Then the angel of the LORD put forth the end of the staff that [was] in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened cakes; and there rose up fire out of the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened cakes. Then the angel of the LORD departed out of his sight."






7 6 22 "And when Gideon perceived that he [was] an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, O Lord GOD! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face."






7 6 23 "And the LORD said unto him, Peace [be] unto thee; fear not: thou shalt not die."






7 6 24 "Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it Jehovahshalom: unto this day it [is] yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites."






7 6 25 "And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that [is] by it:"






7 6 26 "And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the grove which thou shalt cut down."






7 6 27 "Then Gideon took ten men of his servants, and did as the LORD had said unto him: and [so] it was, because he feared his father's household, and the men of the city, that he could not do [it] by day, that he did [it] by night."






7 6 28 "And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, behold, the altar of Baal was cast down, and the grove was cut down that [was] by it, and the second bullock was offered upon the altar [that was] built."






7 6 29 "And they said one to another, Who hath done this thing? And when they enquired and asked, they said, Gideon the son of Joash hath done this thing."






7 6 30 "Then the men of the city said unto Joash, Bring out thy son, that he may die: because he hath cast down the altar of Baal, and because he hath cut down the grove that [was] by it."






7 6 31 "And Joash said unto all that stood against him, Will ye plead for Baal? will ye save him? he that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst [it is yet] morning: if he [be] a god, let him plead for himself, because [one] hath cast down his altar."






7 6 32 "Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal plead against him, because he hath thrown down his altar."






7 6 33 "Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the children of the east were gathered together, and went over, and pitched in the valley of Jezreel."






7 6 34 "But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet; and Abiezer was gathered after him."






7 6 35 "And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh; who also was gathered after him: and he sent messengers unto Asher, and unto Zebulun, and unto Naphtali; and they came up to meet them."






7 6 36 "And Gideon said unto God, If thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said,"






7 6 37 "Behold, I will put a fleece of wool in the floor; [and] if the dew be on the fleece only, and [it be] dry upon all the earth [beside], then shall I know that thou wilt save Israel by mine hand, as thou hast said."






7 6 38 "And it was so: for he rose up early on the morrow, and thrust the fleece together, and wringed the dew out of the fleece, a bowl full of water."






7 6 39 "And Gideon said unto God, Let not thine anger be hot against me, and I will speak but this once: let me prove, I pray thee, but this once with the fleece; let it now be dry only upon the fleece, and upon all the ground let there be dew."






7 6 40 "And God did so that night: for it was dry upon the fleece only, and there was dew on all the ground."






7 7 1 "Then Jerubbaal, who [is] Gideon, and all the people that [were] with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley."






7 7 2 "And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that [are] with thee [are] too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me."






7 7 3 "Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever [is] fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand."






7 7 4 "And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people [are] yet [too] many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, [that] of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go."






7 7 5 "So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink."






7 7 6 "And the number of them that lapped, [putting] their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water."






7 7 7 "And the LORD said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand: and let all the [other] people go every man unto his place."






7 7 8 "So the people took victuals in their hand, and their trumpets: and he sent all [the rest of] Israel every man unto his tent, and retained those three hundred men: and the host of Midian was beneath him in the valley."






7 7 9 "And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Arise, get thee down unto the host; for I have delivered it into thine hand."






7 7 10 "But if thou fear to go down, go thou with Phurah thy servant down to the host:"






7 7 11 And thou shalt hear what they say; and afterward shall thine hands be strengthened to go down unto the host. Then went he down with Phurah his servant unto the outside of the armed men that [were] in the host.






7 7 12 "And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the children of the east lay along in the valley like grasshoppers for multitude; and their camels [were] without number, as the sand by the sea side for multitude."






7 7 13 "And when Gideon was come, behold, [there was] a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along."






7 7 14 "And his fellow answered and said, This [is] nothing else save the sword of Gideon the son of Joash, a man of Israel: [for] into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host."






7 7 15 "And it was [so], when Gideon heard the telling of the dream, and the interpretation thereof, that he worshipped, and returned into the host of Israel, and said, Arise; for the LORD hath delivered into your hand the host of Midian."






7 7 16 "And he divided the three hundred men [into] three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers."






7 7 17 "And he said unto them, Look on me, and do likewise: and, behold, when I come to the outside of the camp, it shall be [that], as I do, so shall ye do."






7 7 18 "When I blow with a trumpet, I and all that [are] with me, then blow ye the trumpets also on every side of all the camp, and say, [The sword] of the LORD, and of Gideon."






7 7 19 "So Gideon, and the hundred men that [were] with him, came unto the outside of the camp in the beginning of the middle watch; and they had but newly set the watch: and they blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers that [were] in their hands."






7 7 20 "And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow [withal]: and they cried, The sword of the LORD, and of Gideon."






7 7 21 "And they stood every man in his place round about the camp: and all the host ran, and cried, and fled."






7 7 22 "And the three hundred blew the trumpets, and the LORD set every man's sword against his fellow, even throughout all the host: and the host fled to Bethshittah in Zererath, [and] to the border of Abelmeholah, unto Tabbath."






7 7 23 "And the men of Israel gathered themselves together out of Naphtali, and out of Asher, and out of all Manasseh, and pursued after the Midianites."






7 7 24 "And Gideon sent messengers throughout all mount Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites, and take before them the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan. Then all the men of Ephraim gathered themselves together, and took the waters unto Bethbarah and Jordan."






7 7 25 "And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan."






7 8 1 "And the men of Ephraim said unto him, Why hast thou served us thus, that thou calledst us not, when thou wentest to fight with the Midianites? And they did chide with him sharply."






7 8 2 "And he said unto them, What have I done now in comparison of you? [Is] not the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?"






7 8 3 "God hath delivered into your hands the princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb: and what was I able to do in comparison of you? Then their anger was abated toward him, when he had said that."






7 8 4 "And Gideon came to Jordan, [and] passed over, he, and the three hundred men that [were] with him, faint, yet pursuing [them]."






7 8 5 "And he said unto the men of Succoth, Give, I pray you, loaves of bread unto the people that follow me; for they [be] faint, and I am pursuing after Zebah and Zalmunna, kings of Midian."






7 8 6 "And the princes of Succoth said, [Are] the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thine army?"






7 8 7 "And Gideon said, Therefore when the LORD hath delivered Zebah and Zalmunna into mine hand, then I will tear your flesh with the thorns of the wilderness and with briers."






7 8 8 "And he went up thence to Penuel, and spake unto them likewise: and the men of Penuel answered him as the men of Succoth had answered [him]."






7 8 9 "And he spake also unto the men of Penuel, saying, When I come again in peace, I will break down this tower."






7 8 10 "Now Zebah and Zalmunna [were] in Karkor, and their hosts with them, about fifteen thousand [men], all that were left of all the hosts of the children of the east: for there fell an hundred and twenty thousand men that drew sword."






7 8 11 "And Gideon went up by the way of them that dwelt in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and smote the host: for the host was secure."






7 8 12 "And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host."






7 8 13 "And Gideon the son of Joash returned from battle before the sun [was up],"






7 8 14 "And caught a young man of the men of Succoth, and enquired of him: and he described unto him the princes of Succoth, and the elders thereof, [even] threescore and seventeen men."






7 8 15 "And he came unto the men of Succoth, and said, Behold Zebah and Zalmunna, with whom ye did upbraid me, saying, [Are] the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna now in thine hand, that we should give bread unto thy men [that are] weary?"






7 8 16 "And he took the elders of the city, and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught the men of Succoth."






7 8 17 "And he beat down the tower of Penuel, and slew the men of the city."






7 8 18 "Then said he unto Zebah and Zalmunna, What manner of men [were they] whom ye slew at Tabor? And they answered, As thou [art], so [were] they; each one resembled the children of a king."






7 8 19 "And he said, They [were] my brethren, [even] the sons of my mother: [as] the LORD liveth, if ye had saved them alive, I would not slay you."






7 8 20 "And he said unto Jether his firstborn, Up, [and] slay them. But the youth drew not his sword: for he feared, because he [was] yet a youth."






7 8 21 "Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Rise thou, and fall upon us: for as the man [is, so is] his strength. And Gideon arose, and slew Zebah and Zalmunna, and took away the ornaments that [were] on their camels' necks."






7 8 22 "Then the men of Israel said unto Gideon, Rule thou over us, both thou, and thy son, and thy son's son also: for thou hast delivered us from the hand of Midian."






7 8 23 "And Gideon said unto them, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you: the LORD shall rule over you."






7 8 24 "And Gideon said unto them, I would desire a request of you, that ye would give me every man the earrings of his prey. (For they had golden earrings, because they [were] Ishmaelites.)"






7 8 25 "And they answered, We will willingly give [them]. And they spread a garment, and did cast therein every man the earrings of his prey."






7 8 26 "And the weight of the golden earrings that he requested was a thousand and seven hundred [shekels] of gold; beside ornaments, and collars, and purple raiment that [was] on the kings of Midian, and beside the chains that [were] about their camels' necks."






7 8 27 "And Gideon made an ephod thereof, and put it in his city, [even] in Ophrah: and all Israel went thither a whoring after it: which thing became a snare unto Gideon, and to his house."






7 8 28 "Thus was Midian subdued before the children of Israel, so that they lifted up their heads no more. And the country was in quietness forty years in the days of Gideon."






7 8 29 And Jerubbaal the son of Joash went and dwelt in his own house.






7 8 30 And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: for he had many wives.






7 8 31 "And his concubine that [was] in Shechem, she also bare him a son, whose name he called Abimelech."






7 8 32 "And Gideon the son of Joash died in a good old age, and was buried in the sepulchre of Joash his father, in Ophrah of the Abiezrites."






7 8 33 "And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baalberith their god."






7 8 34 "And the children of Israel remembered not the LORD their God, who had delivered them out of the hands of all their enemies on every side:"






7 8 35 "Neither shewed they kindness to the house of Jerubbaal, [namely], Gideon, according to all the goodness which he had shewed unto Israel."






7 9 1 "And Abimelech the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem unto his mother's brethren, and communed with them, and with all the family of the house of his mother's father, saying,"






7 9 2 "Speak, I pray you, in the ears of all the men of Shechem, Whether [is] better for you, either that all the sons of Jerubbaal, [which are] threescore and ten persons, reign over you, or that one reign over you? remember also that I [am] your bone and your flesh."






7 9 3 "And his mother's brethren spake of him in the ears of all the men of Shechem all these words: and their hearts inclined to follow Abimelech; for they said, He [is] our brother."






7 9 4 "And they gave him threescore and ten [pieces] of silver out of the house of Baalberith, wherewith Abimelech hired vain and light persons, which followed him."






7 9 5 "And he went unto his father's house at Ophrah, and slew his brethren the sons of Jerubbaal, [being] threescore and ten persons, upon one stone: notwithstanding yet Jotham the youngest son of Jerubbaal was left; for he hid himself."






7 9 6 "And all the men of Shechem gathered together, and all the house of Millo, and went, and made Abimelech king, by the plain of the pillar that [was] in Shechem."






7 9 7 "And when they told [it] to Jotham, he went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you."






7 9 8 "The trees went forth [on a time] to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us."






7 9 9 "But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?"






7 9 10 "And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, [and] reign over us."






7 9 11 "But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees?"






7 9 12 "Then said the trees unto the vine, Come thou, [and] reign over us."






7 9 13 "And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheereth God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?"






7 9 14 "Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, [and] reign over us."






7 9 15 "And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, [then] come [and] put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon."






7 9 16 "Now therefore, if ye have done truly and sincerely, in that ye have made Abimelech king, and if ye have dealt well with Jerubbaal and his house, and have done unto him according to the deserving of his hands;"






7 9 17 "(For my father fought for you, and adventured his life far, and delivered you out of the hand of Midian:"






7 9 18 "And ye are risen up against my father's house this day, and have slain his sons, threescore and ten persons, upon one stone, and have made Abimelech, the son of his maidservant, king over the men of Shechem, because he [is] your brother;)"






7 9 19 "If ye then have dealt truly and sincerely with Jerubbaal and with his house this day, [then] rejoice ye in Abimelech, and let him also rejoice in you:"






7 9 20 "But if not, let fire come out from Abimelech, and devour the men of Shechem, and the house of Millo; and let fire come out from the men of Shechem, and from the house of Millo, and devour Abimelech."






7 9 21 "And Jotham ran away, and fled, and went to Beer, and dwelt there, for fear of Abimelech his brother."






7 9 22 "When Abimelech had reigned three years over Israel,"






7 9 23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech:






7 9 24 "That the cruelty [done] to the threescore and ten sons of Jerubbaal might come, and their blood be laid upon Abimelech their brother, which slew them; and upon the men of Shechem, which aided him in the killing of his brethren."






7 9 25 "And the men of Shechem set liers in wait for him in the top of the mountains, and they robbed all that came along that way by them: and it was told Abimelech."






7 9 26 "And Gaal the son of Ebed came with his brethren, and went over to Shechem: and the men of Shechem put their confidence in him."






7 9 27 "And they went out into the fields, and gathered their vineyards, and trode [the grapes], and made merry, and went into the house of their god, and did eat and drink, and cursed Abimelech."






7 9 28 "And Gaal the son of Ebed said, Who [is] Abimelech, and who [is] Shechem, that we should serve him? [is] not [he] the son of Jerubbaal? and Zebul his officer? serve the men of Hamor the father of Shechem: for why should we serve him?"






7 9 29 "And would to God this people were under my hand! then would I remove Abimelech. And he said to Abimelech, Increase thine army, and come out."






7 9 30 "And when Zebul the ruler of the city heard the words of Gaal the son of Ebed, his anger was kindled."






7 9 31 "And he sent messengers unto Abimelech privily, saying, Behold, Gaal the son of Ebed and his brethren be come to Shechem; and, behold, they fortify the city against thee."






7 9 32 "Now therefore up by night, thou and the people that [is] with thee, and lie in wait in the field:"






7 9 33 "And it shall be, [that] in the morning, as soon as the sun is up, thou shalt rise early, and set upon the city: and, behold, [when] he and the people that [is] with him come out against thee, then mayest thou do to them as thou shalt find occasion."






7 9 34 "And Abimelech rose up, and all the people that [were] with him, by night, and they laid wait against Shechem in four companies."






7 9 35 "And Gaal the son of Ebed went out, and stood in the entering of the gate of the city: and Abimelech rose up, and the people that [were] with him, from lying in wait."






7 9 36 "And when Gaal saw the people, he said to Zebul, Behold, there come people down from the top of the mountains. And Zebul said unto him, Thou seest the shadow of the mountains as [if they were] men."






7 9 37 "And Gaal spake again and said, See there come people down by the middle of the land, and another company come along by the plain of Meonenim."






7 9 38 "Then said Zebul unto him, Where [is] now thy mouth, wherewith thou saidst, Who [is] Abimelech, that we should serve him? [is] not this the people that thou hast despised? go out, I pray now, and fight with them."






7 9 39 "And Gaal went out before the men of Shechem, and fought with Abimelech."






7 9 40 "And Abimelech chased him, and he fled before him, and many were overthrown [and] wounded, [even] unto the entering of the gate."






7 9 41 "And Abimelech dwelt at Arumah: and Zebul thrust out Gaal and his brethren, that they should not dwell in Shechem."






7 9 42 "And it came to pass on the morrow, that the people went out into the field; and they told Abimelech."






7 9 43 "And he took the people, and divided them into three companies, and laid wait in the field, and looked, and, behold, the people [were] come forth out of the city; and he rose up against them, and smote them."






7 9 44 "And Abimelech, and the company that [was] with him, rushed forward, and stood in the entering of the gate of the city: and the two [other] companies ran upon all [the people] that [were] in the fields, and slew them."






7 9 45 "And Abimelech fought against the city all that day; and he took the city, and slew the people that [was] therein, and beat down the city, and sowed it with salt."






7 9 46 "And when all the men of the tower of Shechem heard [that], they entered into an hold of the house of the god Berith."






7 9 47 "And it was told Abimelech, that all the men of the tower of Shechem were gathered together."






7 9 48 "And Abimelech gat him up to mount Zalmon, he and all the people that [were] with him; and Abimelech took an axe in his hand, and cut down a bough from the trees, and took it, and laid [it] on his shoulder, and said unto the people that [were] with him, What ye have seen me do, make haste, [and] do as I [have done]."






7 9 49 "And all the people likewise cut down every man his bough, and followed Abimelech, and put [them] to the hold, and set the hold on fire upon them; so that all the men of the tower of Shechem died also, about a thousand men and women."






7 9 50 "Then went Abimelech to Thebez, and encamped against Thebez, and took it."






7 9 51 "But there was a strong tower within the city, and thither fled all the men and women, and all they of the city, and shut [it] to them, and gat them up to the top of the tower."






7 9 52 "And Abimelech came unto the tower, and fought against it, and went hard unto the door of the tower to burn it with fire."






7 9 53 "And a certain woman cast a piece of a millstone upon Abimelech's head, and all to brake his skull."






7 9 54 "Then he called hastily unto the young man his armourbearer, and said unto him, Draw thy sword, and slay me, that men say not of me, A woman slew him. And his young man thrust him through, and he died."






7 9 55 "And when the men of Israel saw that Abimelech was dead, they departed every man unto his place."






7 9 56 "Thus God rendered the wickedness of Abimelech, which he did unto his father, in slaying his seventy brethren:"






7 9 57 And all the evil of the men of Shechem did God render upon their heads: and upon them came the curse of Jotham the son of Jerubbaal.
