א  וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.  {פ}

1 And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that the LORD commanded Moses. {P}

ב  וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-רָאשֵׁי הַמַּטּוֹת, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר:  זֶה הַדָּבָר, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה.

2 And Moses spoke unto the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying: This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded.

ג  אִישׁ כִּי-יִדֹּר נֶדֶר לַיהוָה, אוֹ-הִשָּׁבַע שְׁבֻעָה לֶאְסֹר אִסָּר עַל-נַפְשׁוֹ--לֹא יַחֵל, דְּבָרוֹ:  כְּכָל-הַיֹּצֵא מִפִּיו, יַעֲשֶׂה.

3 When a man voweth a vow unto the LORD, or sweareth 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.

ד  וְאִשָּׁה, כִּי-תִדֹּר נֶדֶר לַיהוָה, וְאָסְרָה אִסָּר בְּבֵית אָבִיהָ, בִּנְעֻרֶיהָ.

4 Also when a woman voweth a vow unto the LORD, and bindeth herself by a bond, being in her father's house, in her youth,

ה  וְשָׁמַע אָבִיהָ אֶת-נִדְרָהּ, וֶאֱסָרָהּ אֲשֶׁר אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, וְהֶחֱרִישׁ לָהּ, אָבִיהָ--וְקָמוּ, כָּל-נְדָרֶיהָ, וְכָל-אִסָּר אֲשֶׁר-אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, יָקוּם.

5 and her father heareth her vow, or her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father holdeth his peace at her, then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.

ו  וְאִם-הֵנִיא אָבִיהָ אֹתָהּ, בְּיוֹם שָׁמְעוֹ--כָּל-נְדָרֶיהָ וֶאֱסָרֶיהָ אֲשֶׁר-אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, לֹא יָקוּם; וַיהוָה, יִסְלַח-לָהּ, כִּי-הֵנִיא אָבִיהָ, אֹתָהּ.

6 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth, none of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand; and the LORD will forgive her, because her father disallowed her.

ז  וְאִם-הָיוֹ תִהְיֶה לְאִישׁ, וּנְדָרֶיהָ עָלֶיהָ, אוֹ מִבְטָא שְׂפָתֶיהָ, אֲשֶׁר אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ.

7 And if she be married to a husband, while her vows are upon her, or the clear utterance of her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul;

ח  וְשָׁמַע אִישָׁהּ בְּיוֹם שָׁמְעוֹ, וְהֶחֱרִישׁ לָהּ:  וְקָמוּ נְדָרֶיהָ, וֶאֱסָרֶהָ אֲשֶׁר-אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ--יָקֻמוּ.

8 and her husband hear it, whatsoever day it be that he heareth it, and hold his peace at her; then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand.

ט  וְאִם בְּיוֹם שְׁמֹעַ אִישָׁהּ, יָנִיא אוֹתָהּ, וְהֵפֵר אֶת-נִדְרָהּ אֲשֶׁר עָלֶיהָ, וְאֵת מִבְטָא שְׂפָתֶיהָ אֲשֶׁר אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ--וַיהוָה, יִסְלַח-לָהּ.

9 But if her husband disallow her in the day that he heareth it, then he shall make void her vow which is upon her, and the clear utterance of her lips, wherewith she hath bound her soul; and the LORD will forgive her.

י  וְנֵדֶר אַלְמָנָה, וּגְרוּשָׁה--כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, יָקוּם עָלֶיהָ.

10 But the vow of a widow, or of her that is divorced, even every thing wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand against her.

יא  וְאִם-בֵּית אִישָׁהּ, נָדָרָה, אוֹ-אָסְרָה אִסָּר עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, בִּשְׁבֻעָה.

11 And if a woman vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath,

יב  וְשָׁמַע אִישָׁהּ וְהֶחֱרִשׁ לָהּ, לֹא הֵנִיא אֹתָהּ--וְקָמוּ, כָּל-נְדָרֶיהָ, וְכָל-אִסָּר אֲשֶׁר-אָסְרָה עַל-נַפְשָׁהּ, יָקוּם.

12 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.

יג  וְאִם-הָפֵר יָפֵר אֹתָם אִישָׁהּ, בְּיוֹם שָׁמְעוֹ--כָּל-מוֹצָא שְׂפָתֶיהָ לִנְדָרֶיהָ וּלְאִסַּר נַפְשָׁהּ, לֹא יָקוּם:  אִישָׁהּ הֲפֵרָם, וַיהוָה יִסְלַח-לָהּ.

13 But if her husband make them null and void in the day that he heareth them, then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips, whether it were her vows, or the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD will forgive her.

יד  כָּל-נֵדֶר וְכָל-שְׁבֻעַת אִסָּר, לְעַנֹּת נָפֶשׁ--אִישָׁהּ יְקִימֶנּוּ, וְאִישָׁהּ יְפֵרֶנּוּ.

14 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may let it stand, or her husband may make it void.

טו  וְאִם-הַחֲרֵשׁ יַחֲרִישׁ לָהּ אִישָׁהּ, מִיּוֹם אֶל-יוֹם, וְהֵקִים אֶת-כָּל-נְדָרֶיהָ, אוֹ אֶת-כָּל-אֱסָרֶיהָ אֲשֶׁר עָלֶיהָ--הֵקִים אֹתָם, כִּי-הֶחֱרִשׁ לָהּ בְּיוֹם שָׁמְעוֹ.

15 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day, then he causeth all her vows to stand, or all her bonds, which are upon her; he hath let them stand, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them.

טז  וְאִם-הָפֵר יָפֵר אֹתָם, אַחֲרֵי שָׁמְעוֹ--וְנָשָׂא, אֶת-עֲו‍ֹנָהּ.

16 But if he shall make them null and void after that he hath heard them, then he shall bear her iniquity.

יז  אֵלֶּה הַחֻקִּים, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה, בֵּין אִישׁ, לְאִשְׁתּוֹ--בֵּין-אָב לְבִתּוֹ, בִּנְעֻרֶיהָ בֵּית אָבִיהָ.  {פ}

17 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between a father and his daughter, being in her youth, in her father's house. {P}
 
 

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב  נְקֹם, נִקְמַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מֵאֵת, הַמִּדְיָנִים; אַחַר, תֵּאָסֵף אֶל-עַמֶּיךָ.

2 'Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites; afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.'

ג  וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-הָעָם לֵאמֹר, הֵחָלְצוּ מֵאִתְּכֶם אֲנָשִׁים לַצָּבָא; וְיִהְיוּ, עַל-מִדְיָן, לָתֵת נִקְמַת-יְהוָה, בְּמִדְיָן.

3 And Moses spoke unto the people, saying: 'Arm ye men from among you for the war, that they may go against Midian, to execute the LORD'S vengeance on Midian.

ד  אֶלֶף, לַמַּטֶּה, אֶלֶף, לַמַּטֶּה--לְכֹל מַטּוֹת יִשְׂרָאֵל, תִּשְׁלְחוּ לַצָּבָא.

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

ה  וַיִּמָּסְרוּ מֵאַלְפֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶלֶף לַמַּטֶּה--שְׁנֵים-עָשָׂר אֶלֶף, חֲלוּצֵי צָבָא.

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

ו  וַיִּשְׁלַח אֹתָם מֹשֶׁה אֶלֶף לַמַּטֶּה, לַצָּבָא:  אֹתָם וְאֶת-פִּינְחָס בֶּן-אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, לַצָּבָא, וּכְלֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ וַחֲצֹצְרוֹת הַתְּרוּעָה, בְּיָדוֹ.

6 And Moses sent them, a thousand of every tribe, to the war, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy vessels and the trumpets for the alarm in his hand.

ז  וַיִּצְבְּאוּ, עַל-מִדְיָן, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה; וַיַּהַרְגוּ, כָּל-זָכָר.

7 And they warred against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew every male.

ח  וְאֶת-מַלְכֵי מִדְיָן הָרְגוּ עַל-חַלְלֵיהֶם, אֶת-אֱוִי וְאֶת-רֶקֶם וְאֶת-צוּר וְאֶת-חוּר וְאֶת-רֶבַע--חֲמֵשֶׁת, מַלְכֵי מִדְיָן; וְאֵת בִּלְעָם בֶּן-בְּעוֹר, הָרְגוּ בֶּחָרֶב.

8 And they slew the kings of Midian with the rest of their slain: Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian; Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

ט  וַיִּשְׁבּוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-נְשֵׁי מִדְיָן, וְאֶת-טַפָּם; וְאֵת כָּל-בְּהֶמְתָּם וְאֶת-כָּל-מִקְנֵהֶם וְאֶת-כָּל-חֵילָם, בָּזָזוּ.

9 And the children of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their little ones; and all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods, they took for a prey.

י  וְאֵת כָּל-עָרֵיהֶם בְּמוֹשְׁבֹתָם, וְאֵת כָּל-טִירֹתָם--שָׂרְפוּ, בָּאֵשׁ.

10 And all their cities in the places wherein they dwelt, and all their encampments, they burnt with fire.

יא  וַיִּקְחוּ, אֶת-כָּל-הַשָּׁלָל, וְאֵת, כָּל-הַמַּלְקוֹחַ--בָּאָדָם, וּבַבְּהֵמָה.

11 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of man and of beast.

יב  וַיָּבִאוּ אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן וְאֶל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶת-הַשְּׁבִי וְאֶת-הַמַּלְקוֹחַ וְאֶת-הַשָּׁלָל--אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה:  אֶל-עַרְבֹת מוֹאָב, אֲשֶׁר עַל-יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ.  {ס}

12 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and unto Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp, unto the plains of Moab, which are by the Jordan at Jericho. {S}

יג  וַיֵּצְאוּ מֹשֶׁה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, וְכָל-נְשִׂיאֵי הָעֵדָה--לִקְרָאתָם:  אֶל-מִחוּץ, לַמַּחֲנֶה.

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

יד  וַיִּקְצֹף מֹשֶׁה, עַל פְּקוּדֵי הֶחָיִל, שָׂרֵי הָאֲלָפִים וְשָׂרֵי הַמֵּאוֹת, הַבָּאִים מִצְּבָא הַמִּלְחָמָה.

14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds, who came from the service of the war.

טו  וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵיהֶם, מֹשֶׁה:  הַחִיִּיתֶם, כָּל-נְקֵבָה.

15 And Moses said unto them: 'Have ye saved all the women alive?

טז  הֵן הֵנָּה הָיוּ לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, בִּדְבַר בִּלְעָם, לִמְסָר-מַעַל בַּיהוָה, עַל-דְּבַר-פְּעוֹר; וַתְּהִי הַמַּגֵּפָה, בַּעֲדַת יְהוָה.

16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to revolt so as to break faith with the LORD in the matter of Peor, and so the plague was among the congregation of the LORD.

יז  וְעַתָּה, הִרְגוּ כָל-זָכָר בַּטָּף; וְכָל-אִשָּׁה, יֹדַעַת אִישׁ לְמִשְׁכַּב זָכָר--הֲרֹגוּ.

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

יח  וְכֹל הַטַּף בַּנָּשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָדְעוּ מִשְׁכַּב זָכָר--הַחֲיוּ, לָכֶם.

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

יט  וְאַתֶּם, חֲנוּ מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה--שִׁבְעַת יָמִים:  כֹּל הֹרֵג נֶפֶשׁ וְכֹל נֹגֵעַ בֶּחָלָל, תִּתְחַטְּאוּ בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי--אַתֶּם, וּשְׁבִיכֶם.

19 And encamp ye without the camp seven days; whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify yourselves on the third day and on the seventh day, ye and your captives.

כ  וְכָל-בֶּגֶד וְכָל-כְּלִי-עוֹר וְכָל-מַעֲשֵׂה עִזִּים, וְכָל-כְּלִי-עֵץ--תִּתְחַטָּאוּ.  {ס}

20 And as to every garment, and all that is made of skin, and all work of goats' hair, and all things made of wood, ye shall purify.' {S}

כא  וַיֹּאמֶר אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן אֶל-אַנְשֵׁי הַצָּבָא, הַבָּאִים לַמִּלְחָמָה:  זֹאת חֻקַּת הַתּוֹרָה, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.

21 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war that went to the battle: 'This is the statute of the law which the LORD hath commanded Moses:

כב  אַךְ אֶת-הַזָּהָב, וְאֶת-הַכָּסֶף; אֶת-הַנְּחֹשֶׁת, אֶת-הַבַּרְזֶל, אֶת-הַבְּדִיל, וְאֶת-הָעֹפָרֶת.

22 Howbeit the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,

כג  כָּל-דָּבָר אֲשֶׁר-יָבֹא בָאֵשׁ, תַּעֲבִירוּ בָאֵשׁ וְטָהֵר--אַךְ, בְּמֵי נִדָּה יִתְחַטָּא; וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָבֹא בָּאֵשׁ, תַּעֲבִירוּ בַמָּיִם.

23 every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make to go through the fire, and it shall be clean; nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of sprinkling; and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make to go through the water.

כד  וְכִבַּסְתֶּם בִּגְדֵיכֶם בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, וּטְהַרְתֶּם; וְאַחַר, תָּבֹאוּ אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה.  {ס}

24 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterward ye may come into the camp.' {S}

כה  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

25 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

כו  שָׂא, אֵת רֹאשׁ מַלְקוֹחַ הַשְּׁבִי, בָּאָדָם, וּבַבְּהֵמָה--אַתָּה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, וְרָאשֵׁי אֲבוֹת הָעֵדָה.

26 'Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the heads of the fathers' houses of the congregation;

כז  וְחָצִיתָ, אֶת-הַמַּלְקוֹחַ, בֵּין תֹּפְשֵׂי הַמִּלְחָמָה, הַיֹּצְאִים לַצָּבָא--וּבֵין, כָּל-הָעֵדָה.

27 and divide the prey into two parts: between the men skilled in war, that went out to battle, and all the congregation;

כח  וַהֲרֵמֹתָ מֶכֶס לַיהוָה, מֵאֵת אַנְשֵׁי הַמִּלְחָמָה הַיֹּצְאִים לַצָּבָא--אֶחָד נֶפֶשׁ, מֵחֲמֵשׁ הַמֵּאוֹת:  מִן-הָאָדָם, וּמִן-הַבָּקָר, וּמִן-הַחֲמֹרִים, וּמִן-הַצֹּאן.

28 and levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war that went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the flocks;

כט  מִמַּחֲצִיתָם, תִּקָּחוּ; וְנָתַתָּה לְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה.

29 take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, as a portion set apart for the LORD.

ל  וּמִמַּחֲצִת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל תִּקַּח אֶחָד אָחֻז מִן-הַחֲמִשִּׁים, מִן-הָאָדָם מִן-הַבָּקָר מִן-הַחֲמֹרִים וּמִן-הַצֹּאן--מִכָּל-הַבְּהֵמָה; וְנָתַתָּה אֹתָם, לַלְוִיִּם, שֹׁמְרֵי, מִשְׁמֶרֶת מִשְׁכַּן יְהוָה.

30 And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one drawn out of every fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, even of all the cattle, and give them unto the Levites, that keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.'

לא  וַיַּעַשׂ מֹשֶׁה, וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.

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

לב  וַיְהִי, הַמַּלְקוֹחַ--יֶתֶר הַבָּז, אֲשֶׁר בָּזְזוּ עַם הַצָּבָא:  צֹאן, שֵׁשׁ-מֵאוֹת אֶלֶף וְשִׁבְעִים אֶלֶף--וַחֲמֵשֶׁת אֲלָפִים.

32 Now the prey, over and above the booty which the men of war took, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,

לג  וּבָקָר, שְׁנַיִם וְשִׁבְעִים אָלֶף.

33 and threescore and twelve thousand beeves,

לד  וַחֲמֹרִים, אֶחָד וְשִׁשִּׁים אָלֶף.

34 and threescore and one thousand asses,

לה  וְנֶפֶשׁ אָדָם--מִן-הַנָּשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָדְעוּ מִשְׁכַּב זָכָר:  כָּל-נֶפֶשׁ, שְׁנַיִם וּשְׁלֹשִׁים אָלֶף.

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

לו  וַתְּהִי, הַמֶּחֱצָה--חֵלֶק, הַיֹּצְאִים בַּצָּבָא:  מִסְפַּר הַצֹּאן, שְׁלֹשׁ-מֵאוֹת אֶלֶף וּשְׁלֹשִׁים אֶלֶף, וְשִׁבְעַת אֲלָפִים, וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת.

36 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep.

לז  וַיְהִי הַמֶּכֶס לַיהוָה, מִן-הַצֹּאן--שֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת, חָמֵשׁ וְשִׁבְעִים.

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

לח  וְהַבָּקָר--שִׁשָּׁה וּשְׁלֹשִׁים, אָלֶף; וּמִכְסָם לַיהוָה, שְׁנַיִם וְשִׁבְעִים.

38 And the beeves were thirty and six thousand, of which the LORD'S tribute was threescore and twelve.

לט  וַחֲמֹרִים, שְׁלֹשִׁים אֶלֶף וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת; וּמִכְסָם לַיהוָה, אֶחָד וְשִׁשִּׁים.

39 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred, of which the LORD'S tribute was threescore and one.

מ  וְנֶפֶשׁ אָדָם, שִׁשָּׁה עָשָׂר אָלֶף; וּמִכְסָם, לַיהוָה--שְׁנַיִם וּשְׁלֹשִׁים, נָפֶשׁ.

40 And the persons were sixteen thousand, of whom the LORD'S tribute was thirty and two persons.

מא  וַיִּתֵּן מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-מֶכֶס תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה, לְאֶלְעָזָר, הַכֹּהֵן--כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was set apart for the LORD, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

מב  וּמִמַּחֲצִית, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר חָצָה מֹשֶׁה, מִן-הָאֲנָשִׁים הַצֹּבְאִים.

42 And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses divided off from the men that warred--

מג  וַתְּהִי מֶחֱצַת הָעֵדָה, מִן-הַצֹּאן--שְׁלֹשׁ-מֵאוֹת אֶלֶף וּשְׁלֹשִׁים אֶלֶף, שִׁבְעַת אֲלָפִים וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת.

43 now the congregation's half was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep,

מד  וּבָקָר, שִׁשָּׁה וּשְׁלֹשִׁים אָלֶף.

44 and thirty and six thousand beeves,

מה  וַחֲמֹרִים, שְׁלֹשִׁים אֶלֶף וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת.

45 and thirty thousand and five hundred asses,

מו  וְנֶפֶשׁ אָדָם, שִׁשָּׁה עָשָׂר אָלֶף.

46 and sixteen thousand persons--

מז  וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה מִמַּחֲצִת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶת-הָאָחֻז אֶחָד מִן-הַחֲמִשִּׁים--מִן-הָאָדָם, וּמִן-הַבְּהֵמָה; וַיִּתֵּן אֹתָם לַלְוִיִּם, שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁמֶרֶת מִשְׁכַּן יְהוָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.

47 even of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one drawn out of every fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, that kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

מח  וַיִּקְרְבוּ, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, הַפְּקֻדִים, אֲשֶׁר לְאַלְפֵי הַצָּבָא--שָׂרֵי הָאֲלָפִים, וְשָׂרֵי הַמֵּאוֹת.

48 And the officers that were over the thousands of the host, the captains of thousands, and the captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses;

מט  וַיֹּאמְרוּ, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, עֲבָדֶיךָ נָשְׂאוּ אֶת-רֹאשׁ אַנְשֵׁי הַמִּלְחָמָה, אֲשֶׁר בְּיָדֵנוּ; וְלֹא-נִפְקַד מִמֶּנּוּ, אִישׁ.

49 and they said unto Moses: 'Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war that are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.

נ  וַנַּקְרֵב אֶת-קָרְבַּן יְהוָה, אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר מָצָא כְלִי-זָהָב אֶצְעָדָה וְצָמִיד, טַבַּעַת, עָגִיל וְכוּמָז--לְכַפֵּר עַל-נַפְשֹׁתֵינוּ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה.

50 And we have brought the LORD'S offering, what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, armlets, and bracelets, signet-rings, ear-rings, and girdles, to make atonement for our souls before the LORD.'

נא  וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, אֶת-הַזָּהָב--מֵאִתָּם:  כֹּל, כְּלִי מַעֲשֶׂה.

51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels.

נב  וַיְהִי כָּל-זְהַב הַתְּרוּמָה, אֲשֶׁר הֵרִימוּ לַיהוָה--שִׁשָּׁה עָשָׂר אֶלֶף שְׁבַע-מֵאוֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁים, שָׁקֶל:  מֵאֵת שָׂרֵי הָאֲלָפִים, וּמֵאֵת שָׂרֵי הַמֵּאוֹת.

52 And all the gold of the gift that they set apart for the LORD, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.--

נג  אַנְשֵׁי, הַצָּבָא, בָּזְזוּ, אִישׁ לוֹ.

53 For the men of war had taken booty, every man for himself.--

נד  וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, אֶת-הַזָּהָב, מֵאֵת שָׂרֵי הָאֲלָפִים, וְהַמֵּאוֹת; וַיָּבִאוּ אֹתוֹ אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, זִכָּרוֹן לִבְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לִפְנֵי יְהוָה.  {פ}

54 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tent of meeting, for a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD. {P}

א  וּמִקְנֶה רַב, הָיָה לִבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן וְלִבְנֵי-גָד--עָצוּם מְאֹד; וַיִּרְאוּ אֶת-אֶרֶץ יַעְזֵר, וְאֶת-אֶרֶץ גִּלְעָד, וְהִנֵּה הַמָּקוֹם, מְקוֹם מִקְנֶה.

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,

ב  וַיָּבֹאוּ בְנֵי-גָד, וּבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן; וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, וְאֶל-נְשִׂיאֵי הָעֵדָה לֵאמֹר.

2 the children of Gad and the children of Reuben came and spoke unto Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and unto the princes of the congregation, saying:

ג  עֲטָרוֹת וְדִיבֹן וְיַעְזֵר וְנִמְרָה, וְחֶשְׁבּוֹן וְאֶלְעָלֵה, וּשְׂבָם וּנְבוֹ, וּבְעֹן.

3 'Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Sebam, and Nebo, and Beon,

ד  הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר הִכָּה יְהוָה לִפְנֵי עֲדַת יִשְׂרָאֵל--אֶרֶץ מִקְנֶה, הִוא; וְלַעֲבָדֶיךָ, מִקְנֶה.  {ס}

4 the land which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land for cattle, and thy servants have cattle.' {S}

ה  וַיֹּאמְרוּ, אִם-מָצָאנוּ חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ--יֻתַּן אֶת-הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת לַעֲבָדֶיךָ, לַאֲחֻזָּה:  אַל-תַּעֲבִרֵנוּ, אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן.

5 And they said: 'If we have found favour in thy sight, let this land be given unto thy servants for a possession; bring us not over the Jordan.'

ו  וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, לִבְנֵי-גָד וְלִבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן:  הַאַחֵיכֶם, יָבֹאוּ לַמִּלְחָמָה, וְאַתֶּם, תֵּשְׁבוּ פֹה.

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

ז  וְלָמָּה תנואון (תְנִיאוּן), אֶת-לֵב בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--מֵעֲבֹר, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-נָתַן לָהֶם, יְהוָה.

7 And wherefore will ye turn away the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD hath given them?

ח  כֹּה עָשׂוּ, אֲבֹתֵיכֶם, בְּשָׁלְחִי אֹתָם מִקָּדֵשׁ בַּרְנֵעַ, לִרְאוֹת אֶת-הָאָרֶץ.

8 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh-barnea to see the land.

ט  וַיַּעֲלוּ עַד-נַחַל אֶשְׁכּוֹל, וַיִּרְאוּ אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, וַיָּנִיאוּ, אֶת-לֵב בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--לְבִלְתִּי-בֹא, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-נָתַן לָהֶם, יְהוָה.

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

י  וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא; וַיִּשָּׁבַע, לֵאמֹר.

10 And the LORD'S anger was kindled in that day, and He swore, saying:

יא  אִם-יִרְאוּ הָאֲנָשִׁים הָעֹלִים מִמִּצְרַיִם, מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה, אֵת הָאֲדָמָה, אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב:  כִּי לֹא-מִלְאוּ, אַחֲרָי.

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

יב  בִּלְתִּי כָּלֵב בֶּן-יְפֻנֶּה, הַקְּנִזִּי, וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ, בִּן-נוּן:  כִּי מִלְאוּ, אַחֲרֵי יְהוָה.

12 save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite, and Joshua the son of Nun; because they have wholly followed the LORD.

יג  וַיִּחַר-אַף יְהוָה, בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, וַיְנִעֵם בַּמִּדְבָּר, אַרְבָּעִים שָׁנָה--עַד-תֹּם, כָּל-הַדּוֹר, הָעֹשֶׂה הָרַע, בְּעֵינֵי יְהוָה.

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

יד  וְהִנֵּה קַמְתֶּם, תַּחַת אֲבֹתֵיכֶם--תַּרְבּוּת, אֲנָשִׁים חַטָּאִים:  לִסְפּוֹת עוֹד, עַל חֲרוֹן אַף-יְהוָה--אֶל-יִשְׂרָאֵל.

14 And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers' stead, a brood of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel.

טו  כִּי תְשׁוּבֻן, מֵאַחֲרָיו, וְיָסַף עוֹד, לְהַנִּיחוֹ בַּמִּדְבָּר; וְשִׁחַתֶּם, לְכָל-הָעָם הַזֶּה.  {ס}

15 For if ye turn away from after Him, He will yet again leave them in the wilderness; and so ye will destroy all this people.' {S}

טז  וַיִּגְּשׁוּ אֵלָיו וַיֹּאמְרוּ, גִּדְרֹת צֹאן נִבְנֶה לְמִקְנֵנוּ פֹּה, וְעָרִים, לְטַפֵּנוּ.

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

יז  וַאֲנַחְנוּ נֵחָלֵץ חֻשִׁים, לִפְנֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַד אֲשֶׁר אִם-הֲבִיאֹנֻם, אֶל-מְקוֹמָם; וְיָשַׁב טַפֵּנוּ בְּעָרֵי הַמִּבְצָר, מִפְּנֵי יֹשְׁבֵי הָאָרֶץ.

17 but we ourselves will be ready armed to go before the children of Israel, until we have brought them unto their place; and our little ones shall dwell in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land.

יח  לֹא נָשׁוּב, אֶל-בָּתֵּינוּ--עַד, הִתְנַחֵל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אִישׁ, נַחֲלָתוֹ.

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

יט  כִּי לֹא נִנְחַל אִתָּם, מֵעֵבֶר לַיַּרְדֵּן וָהָלְאָה:  כִּי בָאָה נַחֲלָתֵנוּ אֵלֵינוּ, מֵעֵבֶר הַיַּרְדֵּן מִזְרָחָה.  {פ}

19 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan, and forward, because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side of the Jordan eastward.' {P}

כ  וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵיהֶם מֹשֶׁה, אִם-תַּעֲשׂוּן אֶת-הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה:  אִם-תֵּחָלְצוּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לַמִּלְחָמָה.

20 And Moses said unto them: 'If ye will do this thing: if ye will arm yourselves to go before the LORD to the war,

כא  וְעָבַר לָכֶם כָּל-חָלוּץ אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, עַד הוֹרִישׁוֹ אֶת-אֹיְבָיו, מִפָּנָיו.

21 and every armed man of you will pass over the Jordan before the LORD, until He hath driven out His enemies from before Him,

כב  וְנִכְבְּשָׁה הָאָרֶץ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וְאַחַר תָּשֻׁבוּ--וִהְיִיתֶם נְקִיִּם מֵיְהוָה, וּמִיִּשְׂרָאֵל; וְהָיְתָה הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת לָכֶם, לַאֲחֻזָּה--לִפְנֵי יְהוָה.

22 and the land be subdued before the LORD, and ye return afterward; then ye shall be clear before the LORD, and before Israel, and this land shall be unto you for a possession before the LORD.

כג  וְאִם-לֹא תַעֲשׂוּן כֵּן, הִנֵּה חֲטָאתֶם לַיהוָה; וּדְעוּ, חַטַּאתְכֶם, אֲשֶׁר תִּמְצָא, אֶתְכֶם.

23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD; and know ye your sin which will find you.

כד  בְּנוּ-לָכֶם עָרִים לְטַפְּכֶם, וּגְדֵרֹת לְצֹנַאֲכֶם; וְהַיֹּצֵא מִפִּיכֶם, תַּעֲשׂוּ.

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

כה  וַיֹּאמֶר בְּנֵי-גָד וּבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵאמֹר:  עֲבָדֶיךָ יַעֲשׂוּ, כַּאֲשֶׁר אֲדֹנִי מְצַוֶּה.

25 And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spoke unto Moses, saying: 'Thy servants will do as my lord commandeth.

כו  טַפֵּנוּ נָשֵׁינוּ, מִקְנֵנוּ וְכָל-בְּהֶמְתֵּנוּ--יִהְיוּ-שָׁם, בְּעָרֵי הַגִּלְעָד.

26 Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be there in the cities of Gilead;

כז  וַעֲבָדֶיךָ יַעַבְרוּ כָּל-חֲלוּץ צָבָא, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה--לַמִּלְחָמָה:  כַּאֲשֶׁר אֲדֹנִי, דֹּבֵר.

27 but thy servants will pass over, every man that is armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my lord saith.'

כח  וַיְצַו לָהֶם, מֹשֶׁה, אֵת אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, וְאֵת יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן; וְאֶת-רָאשֵׁי אֲבוֹת הַמַּטּוֹת, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

28 So Moses gave charge concerning them to Eleazar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the heads of the fathers' houses of the tribes of the children of Israel.

כט  וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֲלֵהֶם, אִם-יַעַבְרוּ בְנֵי-גָד וּבְנֵי-רְאוּבֵן אִתְּכֶם אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן כָּל-חָלוּץ לַמִּלְחָמָה לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וְנִכְבְּשָׁה הָאָרֶץ, לִפְנֵיכֶם--וּנְתַתֶּם לָהֶם אֶת-אֶרֶץ הַגִּלְעָד, לַאֲחֻזָּה.

29 And Moses said unto them: 'If the children of Gad and the children of Reuben will pass with you over the Jordan, every man that is 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;

ל  וְאִם-לֹא יַעַבְרוּ חֲלוּצִים, אִתְּכֶם--וְנֹאחֲזוּ בְתֹכְכֶם, בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן.

30 but if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan.'

לא  וַיַּעֲנוּ בְנֵי-גָד וּבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן, לֵאמֹר:  אֵת אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה אֶל-עֲבָדֶיךָ, כֵּן נַעֲשֶׂה.

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.

לב  נַחְנוּ נַעֲבֹר חֲלוּצִים לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, אֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן; וְאִתָּנוּ אֲחֻזַּת נַחֲלָתֵנוּ, מֵעֵבֶר לַיַּרְדֵּן.

32 We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, and the possession of our inheritance shall remain with us beyond the Jordan.'

לג  וַיִּתֵּן לָהֶם מֹשֶׁה לִבְנֵי-גָד וְלִבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן וְלַחֲצִי שֵׁבֶט מְנַשֶּׁה בֶן-יוֹסֵף, אֶת-מַמְלֶכֶת סִיחֹן מֶלֶךְ הָאֱמֹרִי, וְאֶת-מַמְלֶכֶת, עוֹג מֶלֶךְ הַבָּשָׁן:  הָאָרֶץ, לְעָרֶיהָ בִּגְבֻלֹת--עָרֵי הָאָרֶץ, סָבִיב.

33 And Moses gave unto them, even to the children of Gad, and to the children of Reuben, and unto the half-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, according to the cities thereof with their borders, even the cities of the land round about.

לד  וַיִּבְנוּ בְנֵי-גָד, אֶת-דִּיבֹן וְאֶת-עֲטָרֹת, וְאֵת, עֲרֹעֵר.

34 And the children of Gad built Dibon, and Ataroth, and Aroer;

לה  וְאֶת-עַטְרֹת שׁוֹפָן וְאֶת-יַעְזֵר, וְיָגְבְּהָה.

35 and Atroth-shophan, and Jazer, and Jogbehah;

לו  וְאֶת-בֵּית נִמְרָה, וְאֶת-בֵּית הָרָן:  עָרֵי מִבְצָר, וְגִדְרֹת צֹאן.

36 and Beth-nimrah, and Beth-haran; fortified cities, and folds for sheep.

לז  וּבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן בָּנוּ, אֶת-חֶשְׁבּוֹן וְאֶת-אֶלְעָלֵא, וְאֵת, קִרְיָתָיִם.

37 And the children of Reuben built Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Kiriathaim;

לח  וְאֶת-נְבוֹ וְאֶת-בַּעַל מְעוֹן, מוּסַבֹּת שֵׁם--וְאֶת-שִׂבְמָה; וַיִּקְרְאוּ בְשֵׁמֹת, אֶת-שְׁמוֹת הֶעָרִים אֲשֶׁר בָּנוּ.

38 and Nebo, and Baal-meon--their names being changed--and Sibmah; and gave their names unto the cities which they builded.

לט  וַיֵּלְכוּ בְּנֵי מָכִיר בֶּן-מְנַשֶּׁה, גִּלְעָדָה--וַיִּלְכְּדֻהָ; וַיּוֹרֶשׁ, אֶת-הָאֱמֹרִי אֲשֶׁר-בָּהּ.

39 And the children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead, and took it, and dispossessed the Amorites that were therein.

מ  וַיִּתֵּן מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַגִּלְעָד, לְמָכִיר בֶּן-מְנַשֶּׁה; וַיֵּשֶׁב, בָּהּ.

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

מא  וְיָאִיר בֶּן-מְנַשֶּׁה הָלַךְ, וַיִּלְכֹּד אֶת-חַוֹּתֵיהֶם; וַיִּקְרָא אֶתְהֶן, חַוֹּת יָאִיר.

41 And Jair the son of Manasseh went and took the villages thereof, and called them Havvoth-jair.

מב  וְנֹבַח הָלַךְ, וַיִּלְכֹּד אֶת-קְנָת וְאֶת-בְּנֹתֶיהָ; וַיִּקְרָא לָה נֹבַח, בִּשְׁמוֹ.  {פ}

42 And Nobah went and took Kenath, and the villages thereof, and called it Nobah, after his own name. {P}

א  אֵלֶּה מַסְעֵי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר יָצְאוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם--לְצִבְאֹתָם:  בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה, וְאַהֲרֹן.

1 These are the stages of the children of Israel, by which they went forth out of the land of Egypt by their hosts under the hand of Moses and Aaron.

ב  וַיִּכְתֹּב מֹשֶׁה אֶת-מוֹצָאֵיהֶם, לְמַסְעֵיהֶם--עַל-פִּי יְהוָה; וְאֵלֶּה מַסְעֵיהֶם, לְמוֹצָאֵיהֶם.

2 And Moses wrote their goings forth, stage by stage, by the commandment of the LORD; and these are their stages at their goings forth.

ג  וַיִּסְעוּ מֵרַעְמְסֵס בַּחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן, בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן:  מִמָּחֳרַת הַפֶּסַח, יָצְאוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּיָד רָמָה--לְעֵינֵי, כָּל-מִצְרָיִם.

3 And they journeyed 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 a high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians,

ד  וּמִצְרַיִם מְקַבְּרִים, אֵת אֲשֶׁר הִכָּה יְהוָה בָּהֶם--כָּל-בְּכוֹר; וּבֵאלֹהֵיהֶם, עָשָׂה יְהוָה שְׁפָטִים.

4 while the Egyptians were burying them that the LORD had smitten among them, even all their first-born; upon their gods also the LORD executed judgments.

ה  וַיִּסְעוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, מֵרַעְמְסֵס; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּסֻכֹּת.

5 And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth.

ו  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִסֻּכֹּת; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְאֵתָם, אֲשֶׁר בִּקְצֵה הַמִּדְבָּר.

6 And they journeyed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which is in the edge of the wilderness.

ז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֵתָם, וַיָּשָׁב עַל-פִּי הַחִירֹת, אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי בַּעַל צְפוֹן; וַיַּחֲנוּ, לִפְנֵי מִגְדֹּל.

7 And they journeyed from Etham, and turned back unto Pihahiroth, which is before Baal-zephon; and they pitched before Migdol.

ח  וַיִּסְעוּ מִפְּנֵי הַחִירֹת, וַיַּעַבְרוּ בְתוֹךְ-הַיָּם הַמִּדְבָּרָה; וַיֵּלְכוּ דֶּרֶךְ שְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים, בְּמִדְבַּר אֵתָם, וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמָרָה.

8 And they journeyed from Penehahiroth, and passed through the midst of the sea into the wilderness; and they went three days' journey in the wilderness of Etham, and pitched in Marah.

ט  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמָּרָה, וַיָּבֹאוּ, אֵילִמָה; וּבְאֵילִם שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה עֵינֹת מַיִם, וְשִׁבְעִים תְּמָרִים--וַיַּחֲנוּ-שָׁם.

9 And they journeyed from Marah, and came unto Elim; and in Elim were twelve springs of water, and threescore and ten palm-trees; and they pitched there.

י  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֵילִם; וַיַּחֲנוּ, עַל-יַם-סוּף.

10 And they journeyed from Elim, and pitched by the Red Sea.

יא  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִיַּם-סוּף; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמִדְבַּר-סִין.

11 And they journeyed from the Red Sea, and pitched in the wilderness of Sin.

יב  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמִּדְבַּר-סִין; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּדָפְקָה.

12 And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, and pitched in Dophkah.

יג  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִדָּפְקָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּאָלוּשׁ.

13 And they journeyed from Dophkah, and pitched in Alush.

יד  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאָלוּשׁ; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בִּרְפִידִם, וְלֹא-הָיָה שָׁם מַיִם לָעָם, לִשְׁתּוֹת.

14 And they journeyed from Alush, and pitched in Rephidim, where was no water for the people to drink.

טו  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵרְפִידִם; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמִדְבַּר סִינָי.

15 And they journeyed from Rephidim, and pitched in the wilderness of Sinai.

טז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמִּדְבַּר סִינָי; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּקִבְרֹת הַתַּאֲוָה.

16 And they journeyed from the wilderness of Sinai, and pitched in Kibroth-hattaavah.

יז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִקִּבְרֹת הַתַּאֲוָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בַּחֲצֵרֹת.

17 And they journeyed from Kibroth-hattaavah, and pitched in Hazeroth.

יח  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵחֲצֵרֹת; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּרִתְמָה.

18 And they journeyed from Hazeroth, and pitched in Rithmah.

יט  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵרִתְמָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּרִמֹּן פָּרֶץ.

19 And they journeyed from Rithmah, and pitched in Rimmon-perez.

כ  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵרִמֹּן פָּרֶץ; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּלִבְנָה.

20 And they journeyed from Rimmon-perez, and pitched in Libnah.

כא  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִלִּבְנָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּרִסָּה.

21 And they journeyed from Libnah, and pitched in Rissah.

כב  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵרִסָּה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בִּקְהֵלָתָה.

22 And they journeyed from Rissah, and pitched in Kehelah.

כג  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִקְּהֵלָתָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּהַר-שָׁפֶר.

23 And they journeyed from Kehelah, and pitched in mount Shepher.

כד  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵהַר-שָׁפֶר; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בַּחֲרָדָה.

24 And they journeyed from mount Shepher, and pitched in Haradah.

כה  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵחֲרָדָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמַקְהֵלֹת.

25 And they journeyed from Haradah, and pitched in Makheloth.

כו  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמַּקְהֵלֹת; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּתָחַת.

26 And they journeyed from Makheloth, and pitched in Tahath.

כז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִתָּחַת; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּתָרַח.

27 And they journeyed from Tahath, and pitched in Terah.

כח  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִתָּרַח; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמִתְקָה.

28 And they journeyed from Terah, and pitched in Mithkah.

כט  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמִּתְקָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּחַשְׁמֹנָה.

29 And they journeyed from Mithkah, and pitched in Hashmonah.

ל  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵחַשְׁמֹנָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּמֹסֵרוֹת.

30 And they journeyed from Hashmonah, and pitched in Moseroth.

לא  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִמֹּסֵרוֹת; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בִּבְנֵי יַעֲקָן.

31 And they journeyed from Moseroth, and pitched in Bene-jaakan.

לב  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִבְּנֵי יַעֲקָן; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּחֹר הַגִּדְגָּד.

32 And they journeyed from Bene-jaakan, and pitched in Hor-haggidgad.

לג  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵחֹר הַגִּדְגָּד; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּיָטְבָתָה.

33 And they journeyed from Hor-haggidgad, and pitched in Jotbah.

לד  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִיָּטְבָתָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּעַבְרֹנָה.

34 And they journeyed from Jotbah, and pitched in Abronah.

לה  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵעַבְרֹנָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּעֶצְיֹן גָּבֶר.

35 And they journeyed from Abronah, and pitched in Ezion-geber.

לו  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵעֶצְיֹן גָּבֶר; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְמִדְבַּר-צִן, הִוא קָדֵשׁ.

36 And they journeyed from Ezion-geber, and pitched in the wilderness of Zin--the same is Kadesh.

לז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִקָּדֵשׁ; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְּהֹר הָהָר, בִּקְצֵה אֶרֶץ אֱדוֹם.

37 And they journeyed from Kadesh, and pitched in mount Hor, in the edge of the land of Edom.--

לח  וַיַּעַל אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן אֶל-הֹר הָהָר, עַל-פִּי יְהוָה--וַיָּמָת שָׁם:  בִּשְׁנַת הָאַרְבָּעִים, לְצֵאת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַחֲמִישִׁי, בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ.

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 fifth month, on the first day of the month.

39 And Aaron was a hundred and twenty and three years old when he died in mount Hor. {S}

מ  וַיִּשְׁמַע, הַכְּנַעֲנִי מֶלֶךְ עֲרָד, וְהוּא-יֹשֵׁב בַּנֶּגֶב, בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן--בְּבֹא, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

40 And the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who dwelt in the South in the land of Canaan, heard of the coming of the children of Israel.--

מא  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵהֹר הָהָר; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּצַלְמֹנָה.

41 And they journeyed from mount Hor, and pitched in Zalmonah.

מב  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִצַּלְמֹנָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּפוּנֹן.

42 And they journeyed from Zalmonah, and pitched in Punon.

מג  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִפּוּנֹן; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּאֹבֹת.

43 And they journeyed from Punon, and pitched in Oboth.

מד  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵאֹבֹת; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְּעִיֵּי הָעֲבָרִים, בִּגְבוּל מוֹאָב.

44 And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched in Ije-abarim, in the border of Moab.

מה  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵעִיִּים; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּדִיבֹן גָּד.

45 And they journeyed from Ijim, and pitched in Dibon-gad.

מו  וַיִּסְעוּ, מִדִּיבֹן גָּד; וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּעַלְמֹן דִּבְלָתָיְמָה.

46 And they journeyed from Dibon-gad, and pitched in Almon-diblathaim.

מז  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵעַלְמֹן דִּבְלָתָיְמָה; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְּהָרֵי הָעֲבָרִים, לִפְנֵי נְבוֹ.

47 And they journeyed from Almon-diblathaim, and pitched in the mountains of Abarim, in front of Nebo.

מח  וַיִּסְעוּ, מֵהָרֵי הָעֲבָרִים; וַיַּחֲנוּ בְּעַרְבֹת מוֹאָב, עַל יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ.

48 And they journeyed from the mountains of Abarim, and pitched in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.

מט  וַיַּחֲנוּ עַל-הַיַּרְדֵּן מִבֵּית הַיְשִׁמֹת, עַד אָבֵל הַשִּׁטִּים, בְּעַרְבֹת, מוֹאָב.  {ס}

49 And they pitched by the Jordan, from Beth-jeshimoth even unto Abel-shittim in the plains of Moab. {S}

נ  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, בְּעַרְבֹת מוֹאָב, עַל-יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ, לֵאמֹר.

50 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying:

נא  דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם:  כִּי אַתֶּם עֹבְרִים אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, אֶל-אֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן.

51 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

נב  וְהוֹרַשְׁתֶּם אֶת-כָּל-יֹשְׁבֵי הָאָרֶץ, מִפְּנֵיכֶם, וְאִבַּדְתֶּם, אֵת כָּל-מַשְׂכִּיֹּתָם; וְאֵת כָּל-צַלְמֵי מַסֵּכֹתָם תְּאַבֵּדוּ, וְאֵת כָּל-בָּמוֹתָם תַּשְׁמִידוּ.

52 then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their figured stones, and destroy all their molten images, and demolish all their high places.

נג  וְהוֹרַשְׁתֶּם אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, וִישַׁבְתֶּם-בָּהּ:  כִּי לָכֶם נָתַתִּי אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, לָרֶשֶׁת אֹתָהּ.

53 And ye shall drive out the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein; for unto you have I given the land to possess it.

נד  וְהִתְנַחַלְתֶּם אֶת-הָאָרֶץ בְּגוֹרָל לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתֵיכֶם, לָרַב תַּרְבּוּ אֶת-נַחֲלָתוֹ וְלַמְעַט תַּמְעִיט אֶת-נַחֲלָתוֹ--אֶל אֲשֶׁר-יֵצֵא לוֹ שָׁמָּה הַגּוֹרָל, לוֹ יִהְיֶה:  לְמַטּוֹת אֲבֹתֵיכֶם, תִּתְנֶחָלוּ.

54 And ye shall inherit the land by lot according to your families--to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less inheritance; wheresoever the lot falleth to any man, that shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers shall ye inherit.

נה  וְאִם-לֹא תוֹרִישׁוּ אֶת-יֹשְׁבֵי הָאָרֶץ, מִפְּנֵיכֶם--וְהָיָה אֲשֶׁר תּוֹתִירוּ מֵהֶם, לְשִׂכִּים בְּעֵינֵיכֶם וְלִצְנִינִם בְּצִדֵּיכֶם; וְצָרְרוּ אֶתְכֶם--עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם יֹשְׁבִים בָּהּ.

55 But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then shall those that ye let remain of them be as thorns in your eyes, and as pricks in your sides, and they shall harass you in the land wherein ye dwell.

נו  וְהָיָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּמִּיתִי לַעֲשׂוֹת לָהֶם--אֶעֱשֶׂה לָכֶם.  {פ}

56 And it shall come to pass, that as I thought to do unto them, so will I do unto you. {P}

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב  צַו אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם, כִּי-אַתֶּם בָּאִים, אֶל-הָאָרֶץ כְּנָעַן:  זֹאת הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר תִּפֹּל לָכֶם בְּנַחֲלָה, אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן, לִגְבֻלֹתֶיהָ.

2 'Command the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye come into the land of Canaan, this shall be the land that shall fall unto you for an inheritance, even the land of Canaan according to the borders thereof.

ג  וְהָיָה לָכֶם פְּאַת-נֶגֶב מִמִּדְבַּר-צִן, עַל-יְדֵי אֱדוֹם; וְהָיָה לָכֶם גְּבוּל נֶגֶב, מִקְצֵה יָם-הַמֶּלַח קֵדְמָה.

3 Thus your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin close by the side of Edom, and your south border shall begin at the end of the Salt Sea eastward;

ד  וְנָסַב לָכֶם הַגְּבוּל מִנֶּגֶב לְמַעֲלֵה עַקְרַבִּים, וְעָבַר צִנָה, והיה (וְהָיוּ) תּוֹצְאֹתָיו, מִנֶּגֶב לְקָדֵשׁ בַּרְנֵעַ; וְיָצָא חֲצַר-אַדָּר, וְעָבַר עַצְמֹנָה.

4 and your border shall turn about southward of the ascent of Akrabbim, and pass along to Zin; and the goings out thereof shall be southward of Kadesh-barnea; and it shall go forth to Hazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon;

ה  וְנָסַב הַגְּבוּל מֵעַצְמוֹן, נַחְלָה מִצְרָיִם; וְהָיוּ תוֹצְאֹתָיו, הַיָּמָּה.

5 and the border shall turn about from Azmon unto the Brook of Egypt, and the goings out thereof shall be at the Sea.

ו  וּגְבוּל יָם, וְהָיָה לָכֶם הַיָּם הַגָּדוֹל וּגְבוּל; זֶה-יִהְיֶה לָכֶם, גְּבוּל יָם.

6 And for the western border, ye shall have the Great Sea for a border; this shall be your west border.

ז  וְזֶה-יִהְיֶה לָכֶם, גְּבוּל צָפוֹן:  מִן-הַיָּם, הַגָּדֹל, תְּתָאוּ לָכֶם, הֹר הָהָר.

7 And this shall be your north border: from the Great Sea ye shall mark out your line unto mount Hor;

ח  מֵהֹר הָהָר, תְּתָאוּ לְבֹא חֲמָת; וְהָיוּ תּוֹצְאֹת הַגְּבֻל, צְדָדָה.

8 from mount Hor ye shall mark out a line unto the entrance to Hamath; and the goings out of the border shall be at Zedad;

ט  וְיָצָא הַגְּבֻל זִפְרֹנָה, וְהָיוּ תוֹצְאֹתָיו חֲצַר עֵינָן; זֶה-יִהְיֶה לָכֶם, גְּבוּל צָפוֹן.

9 and the border shall go forth to Ziphron, and the goings out thereof shall be at Hazar-enan; this shall be your north border.

י  וְהִתְאַוִּיתֶם לָכֶם, לִגְבוּל קֵדְמָה, מֵחֲצַר עֵינָן, שְׁפָמָה.

10 And ye shall mark out your line for the east border from Hazar-enan to Shepham;

יא  וְיָרַד הַגְּבֻל מִשְּׁפָם הָרִבְלָה, מִקֶּדֶם לָעָיִן; וְיָרַד הַגְּבֻל, וּמָחָה עַל-כֶּתֶף יָם-כִּנֶּרֶת קֵדְמָה.

11 and the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah, on the east side of Ain; and the border shall go down, and shall strike upon the slope of the sea of Chinnereth eastward;

יב  וְיָרַד הַגְּבוּל הַיַּרְדֵּנָה, וְהָיוּ תוֹצְאֹתָיו יָם הַמֶּלַח; זֹאת תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם הָאָרֶץ לִגְבֻלֹתֶיהָ, סָבִיב.

12 and the border shall go down to the Jordan, and the goings out thereof shall be at the Salt Sea; this shall be your land according to the borders thereof round about.'

יג  וַיְצַו מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר:  זֹאת הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְנַחֲלוּ אֹתָהּ בְּגוֹרָל, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, לָתֵת לְתִשְׁעַת הַמַּטּוֹת וַחֲצִי הַמַּטֶּה.

13 And Moses commanded the children of Israel, saying: 'This is the land wherein ye shall receive inheritance by lot, which the LORD hath commanded to give unto the nine tribes, and to the half-tribe;

יד  כִּי לָקְחוּ מַטֵּה בְנֵי הָראוּבֵנִי, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם, וּמַטֵּה בְנֵי-הַגָּדִי, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם; וַחֲצִי מַטֵּה מְנַשֶּׁה, לָקְחוּ נַחֲלָתָם.

14 for the tribe of the children of Reuben according to their fathers' houses, and the tribe of the children of Gad according to their fathers' houses, have received, and the half-tribe of Manasseh have received, their inheritance;

טו  שְׁנֵי הַמַּטּוֹת, וַחֲצִי הַמַּטֶּה:  לָקְחוּ נַחֲלָתָם, מֵעֵבֶר לְיַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ--קֵדְמָה מִזְרָחָה.  {פ}

15 the two tribes and the half-tribe have received their inheritance beyond the Jordan at Jericho eastward, toward the sun-rising.' {P}

טז  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

16 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

יז  אֵלֶּה שְׁמוֹת הָאֲנָשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר-יִנְחֲלוּ לָכֶם אֶת-הָאָרֶץ:  אֶלְעָזָר, הַכֹּהֵן, וִיהוֹשֻׁעַ, בִּן-נוּן.

17 'These are the names of the men that shall take possession of the land for you: Eleazar the priest, and Joshua the son of Nun.

יח  וְנָשִׂיא אֶחָד נָשִׂיא אֶחָד, מִמַּטֶּה--תִּקְחוּ, לִנְחֹל אֶת-הָאָרֶץ.

18 And ye shall take one prince of every tribe, to take possession of the land.

יט  וְאֵלֶּה, שְׁמוֹת הָאֲנָשִׁים:  לְמַטֵּה יְהוּדָה, כָּלֵב בֶּן-יְפֻנֶּה.

19 And these are the names of the men: of the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh.

כ  וּלְמַטֵּה בְּנֵי שִׁמְעוֹן, שְׁמוּאֵל בֶּן-עַמִּיהוּד.

20 And of the tribe of the children of Simeon, Shemuel the son of Ammihud.

כא  לְמַטֵּה בִנְיָמִן, אֱלִידָד בֶּן-כִּסְלוֹן.

21 Of the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon.

כב  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-דָן, נָשִׂיא--בֻּקִּי, בֶּן-יָגְלִי.

22 And of the tribe of the children of Dan a prince, Bukki the son of Jogli.

כג  לִבְנֵי יוֹסֵף, לְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-מְנַשֶּׁה נָשִׂיא--חַנִּיאֵל, בֶּן-אֵפֹד.

23 Of the children of Joseph: of the tribe of the children of Manasseh a prince, Hanniel the son of Ephod;

כד  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-אֶפְרַיִם, נָשִׂיא--קְמוּאֵל, בֶּן-שִׁפְטָן.

24 and of the tribe of the children of Ephraim a prince, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan.

כה  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-זְבוּלֻן, נָשִׂיא--אֱלִיצָפָן, בֶּן-פַּרְנָךְ.

25 And of the tribe of the children of Zebulun a prince, Eli-zaphan the son of Parnach.

כו  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-יִשָּׂשכָר, נָשִׂיא--פַּלְטִיאֵל, בֶּן-עַזָּן.

26 And of the tribe of the children of Issachar a prince, Paltiel the son of Azzan.

כז  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-אָשֵׁר, נָשִׂיא--אֲחִיהוּד, בֶּן-שְׁלֹמִי.

27 And of the tribe of the children of Asher a prince, Ahihud the son of Shelomi.

כח  וּלְמַטֵּה בְנֵי-נַפְתָּלִי, נָשִׂיא--פְּדַהְאֵל, בֶּן-עַמִּיהוּד.

28 And of the tribe of the children of Naphtali a prince, Pedahel the son of Ammihud.

כט  אֵלֶּה, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, לְנַחֵל אֶת-בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן.  {פ}

29 These are they whom the LORD commanded to divide the inheritance unto the children of Israel in the land of Canaan.' {P}

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, בְּעַרְבֹת מוֹאָב, עַל-יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ, לֵאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying:

ב  צַו, אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְנָתְנוּ לַלְוִיִּם מִנַּחֲלַת אֲחֻזָּתָם, עָרִים לָשָׁבֶת; וּמִגְרָשׁ, לֶעָרִים סְבִיבֹתֵיהֶם, תִּתְּנוּ, לַלְוִיִּם.

2 'Command the children of Israel, that they give unto the Levites of the inheritance of their possession cities to dwell in; and open land round about the cities shall ye give unto the Levites.

ג  וְהָיוּ הֶעָרִים לָהֶם, לָשָׁבֶת; וּמִגְרְשֵׁיהֶם, יִהְיוּ לִבְהֶמְתָּם וְלִרְכֻשָׁם, וּלְכֹל, חַיָּתָם.

3 And the cities shall they have to dwell in; and their open land shall be for their cattle, and for their substance, and for all their beasts.

ד  וּמִגְרְשֵׁי, הֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְּנוּ, לַלְוִיִּם--מִקִּיר הָעִיר וָחוּצָה, אֶלֶף אַמָּה סָבִיב.

4 And the open land about the cities, which ye shall give unto the Levites, shall be from the wall of the city and outward a thousand cubits round about.

ה  וּמַדֹּתֶם מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶת-פְּאַת-קֵדְמָה אַלְפַּיִם בָּאַמָּה וְאֶת-פְּאַת-נֶגֶב אַלְפַּיִם בָּאַמָּה וְאֶת-פְּאַת-יָם אַלְפַּיִם בָּאַמָּה וְאֵת פְּאַת צָפוֹן אַלְפַּיִם בָּאַמָּה--וְהָעִיר בַּתָּוֶךְ; זֶה יִהְיֶה לָהֶם, מִגְרְשֵׁי הֶעָרִים.

5 And ye shall measure without the city for the east side two thousand cubits, and for the south side two thousand cubits, and for the west side two thousand cubits, and for the north side two thousand cubits, the city being in the midst. This shall be to them the open land about the cities.

ו  וְאֵת הֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְּנוּ לַלְוִיִּם--אֵת שֵׁשׁ-עָרֵי הַמִּקְלָט, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְּנוּ לָנֻס שָׁמָּה הָרֹצֵחַ; וַעֲלֵיהֶם תִּתְּנוּ, אַרְבָּעִים וּשְׁתַּיִם עִיר.

6 And the cities which ye shall give unto the Levites, they shall be the six cities of refuge, which ye shall give for the manslayer to flee thither; and beside them ye shall give forty and two cities.

ז  כָּל-הֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְּנוּ לַלְוִיִּם--אַרְבָּעִים וּשְׁמֹנֶה, עִיר:  אֶתְהֶן, וְאֶת-מִגְרְשֵׁיהֶן.

7 All the cities which ye shall give to the Levites shall be forty and eight cities: them shall ye give with the open land about them.

ח  וְהֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר תִּתְּנוּ מֵאֲחֻזַּת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל--מֵאֵת הָרַב תַּרְבּוּ, וּמֵאֵת הַמְעַט תַּמְעִיטוּ:  אִישׁ, כְּפִי נַחֲלָתוֹ אֲשֶׁר יִנְחָלוּ, יִתֵּן מֵעָרָיו, לַלְוִיִּם.  {פ}

8 And concerning the cities which ye shall give of the possession of the children of Israel, from the many ye shall take many, and from the few ye shall take few; each tribe according to its inheritance which it inheriteth shall give of its cities unto the Levites.' {P}

ט  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

9 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

י  דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאָמַרְתָּ אֲלֵהֶם:  כִּי אַתֶּם עֹבְרִים אֶת-הַיַּרְדֵּן, אַרְצָה כְּנָעַן.

10 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When ye pass over the Jordan into the land of Canaan,

יא  וְהִקְרִיתֶם לָכֶם עָרִים, עָרֵי מִקְלָט תִּהְיֶינָה לָכֶם; וְנָס שָׁמָּה רֹצֵחַ, מַכֵּה-נֶפֶשׁ בִּשְׁגָגָה.

11 then ye shall appoint you cities to be cities of refuge for you, that the manslayer that killeth any person through error may flee thither.

יב  וְהָיוּ לָכֶם הֶעָרִים לְמִקְלָט, מִגֹּאֵל; וְלֹא יָמוּת הָרֹצֵחַ, עַד-עָמְדוֹ לִפְנֵי הָעֵדָה לַמִּשְׁפָּט.

12 And the cities shall be unto you for refuge from the avenger, that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation for judgment.

יג  וְהֶעָרִים, אֲשֶׁר תִּתֵּנוּ--שֵׁשׁ-עָרֵי מִקְלָט, תִּהְיֶינָה לָכֶם.

13 And as to the cities which ye shall give, there shall be for you six cities of refuge.

יד  אֵת שְׁלֹשׁ הֶעָרִים, תִּתְּנוּ מֵעֵבֶר לַיַּרְדֵּן, וְאֵת שְׁלֹשׁ הֶעָרִים, תִּתְּנוּ בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן:  עָרֵי מִקְלָט, תִּהְיֶינָה.

14 Ye shall give three cities beyond the Jordan, and three cities shall ye give in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge.

טו  לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְלַגֵּר וְלַתּוֹשָׁב בְּתוֹכָם, תִּהְיֶינָה שֵׁשׁ-הֶעָרִים הָאֵלֶּה, לְמִקְלָט--לָנוּס שָׁמָּה, כָּל-מַכֵּה-נֶפֶשׁ בִּשְׁגָגָה.

15 For the children of Israel, and for the stranger and for the settler among them, shall these six cities be for refuge, that every one that killeth any person through error may flee thither.

טז  וְאִם-בִּכְלִי בַרְזֶל הִכָּהוּ וַיָּמֹת, רֹצֵחַ הוּא:  מוֹת יוּמַת, הָרֹצֵחַ.

16 But if he smote him with an instrument of iron, so that he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.

יז  וְאִם בְּאֶבֶן יָד אֲשֶׁר-יָמוּת בָּהּ הִכָּהוּ, וַיָּמֹת--רֹצֵחַ הוּא:  מוֹת יוּמַת, הָרֹצֵחַ.

17 And if he smote him with a stone in the hand, whereby a man may die, and he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.

יח  אוֹ בִּכְלִי עֵץ-יָד אֲשֶׁר-יָמוּת בּוֹ הִכָּהוּ, וַיָּמֹת--רֹצֵחַ הוּא:  מוֹת יוּמַת, הָרֹצֵחַ.

18 Or if he smote him with a weapon of wood in the hand, whereby a man may die, and he died, he is a murderer; the murderer shall surely be put to death.

יט  גֹּאֵל הַדָּם, הוּא יָמִית אֶת-הָרֹצֵחַ:  בְּפִגְעוֹ-בוֹ, הוּא יְמִתֶנּוּ.

19 The avenger of blood shall himself put the murderer to death; when he meeteth him, he shall put him to death.

כ  וְאִם-בְּשִׂנְאָה, יֶהְדֳּפֶנּוּ, אוֹ-הִשְׁלִיךְ עָלָיו בִּצְדִיָּה, וַיָּמֹת.

20 And if he thrust him of hatred, or hurled at him any thing, lying in wait, so that he died;

כא  אוֹ בְאֵיבָה הִכָּהוּ בְיָדוֹ, וַיָּמֹת--מוֹת-יוּמַת הַמַּכֶּה, רֹצֵחַ הוּא:  גֹּאֵל הַדָּם, יָמִית אֶת-הָרֹצֵחַ--בְּפִגְעוֹ-בוֹ.

21 or in enmity smote him with his hand, that he died; he that smote him shall surely be put to death: he is a murderer; the avenger of blood shall put the murderer to death when he meeteth him.

כב  וְאִם-בְּפֶתַע בְּלֹא-אֵיבָה, הֲדָפוֹ, אוֹ-הִשְׁלִיךְ עָלָיו כָּל-כְּלִי, בְּלֹא צְדִיָּה.

22 But if he thrust him suddenly without enmity, or hurled upon him any thing without lying in wait,

כג  אוֹ בְכָל-אֶבֶן אֲשֶׁר-יָמוּת בָּהּ, בְּלֹא רְאוֹת, וַיַּפֵּל עָלָיו, וַיָּמֹת--וְהוּא לֹא-אוֹיֵב לוֹ, וְלֹא מְבַקֵּשׁ רָעָתוֹ.

23 or with any stone, whereby a man may die, seeing him not, and cast it upon him, so that he died, and he was not his enemy, neither sought his harm;

כד  וְשָׁפְטוּ, הָעֵדָה, בֵּין הַמַּכֶּה, וּבֵין גֹּאֵל הַדָּם--עַל הַמִּשְׁפָּטִים, הָאֵלֶּה.

24 then the congregation shall judge between the smiter and the avenger of blood according to these ordinances;

כה  וְהִצִּילוּ הָעֵדָה אֶת-הָרֹצֵחַ, מִיַּד גֹּאֵל הַדָּם, וְהֵשִׁיבוּ אֹתוֹ הָעֵדָה, אֶל-עִיר מִקְלָטוֹ אֲשֶׁר-נָס שָׁמָּה; וְיָשַׁב בָּהּ, עַד-מוֹת הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדֹל, אֲשֶׁר-מָשַׁח אֹתוֹ, בְּשֶׁמֶן הַקֹּדֶשׁ.

25 and the congregation shall deliver the manslayer out of the hand of the avenger of blood, and the congregation shall restore him to his city of refuge, whither he was fled; and he shall dwell therein until the death of the high priest, who was anointed with the holy oil.

כו  וְאִם-יָצֹא יֵצֵא, הָרֹצֵחַ, אֶת-גְּבוּל עִיר מִקְלָטוֹ, אֲשֶׁר יָנוּס שָׁמָּה.

26 But if the manslayer shall at any time go beyond the border of his city of refuge, whither he fleeth;

כז  וּמָצָא אֹתוֹ, גֹּאֵל הַדָּם, מִחוּץ, לִגְבוּל עִיר מִקְלָטוֹ:  וְרָצַח גֹּאֵל הַדָּם, אֶת-הָרֹצֵחַ--אֵין לוֹ, דָּם.

27 and the avenger of blood find him without the border of his city of refuge, and the avenger of blood slay the manslayer; there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him;

כח  כִּי בְעִיר מִקְלָטוֹ יֵשֵׁב, עַד-מוֹת הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדֹל; וְאַחֲרֵי מוֹת, הַכֹּהֵן הַגָּדֹל--יָשׁוּב הָרֹצֵחַ, אֶל-אֶרֶץ אֲחֻזָּתוֹ.

28 because he must remain in his city of refuge until the death of the high priest; but after the death of the high priest the manslayer may return into the land of his possession.

כט  וְהָיוּ אֵלֶּה לָכֶם לְחֻקַּת מִשְׁפָּט, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם, בְּכֹל, מוֹשְׁבֹתֵיכֶם.

29 And these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

ל  כָּל-מַכֵּה-נֶפֶשׁ--לְפִי עֵדִים, יִרְצַח אֶת-הָרֹצֵחַ; וְעֵד אֶחָד, לֹא-יַעֲנֶה בְנֶפֶשׁ לָמוּת.

30 Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be slain at the mouth of witnesses; but one witness shall not testify against any person that he die.

לא  וְלֹא-תִקְחוּ כֹפֶר לְנֶפֶשׁ רֹצֵחַ, אֲשֶׁר-הוּא רָשָׁע לָמוּת:  כִּי-מוֹת, יוּמָת.

31 Moreover ye shall take no ransom for the life of a murderer, that is guilty of death; but he shall surely be put to death.

לב  וְלֹא-תִקְחוּ כֹפֶר, לָנוּס אֶל-עִיר מִקְלָטוֹ, לָשׁוּב לָשֶׁבֶת בָּאָרֶץ, עַד-מוֹת הַכֹּהֵן.

32 And ye shall take no ransom for him that is fled to his city of refuge, that he should come again to dwell in the land, until the death of the priest.

לג  וְלֹא-תַחֲנִיפוּ אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם בָּהּ, כִּי הַדָּם, הוּא יַחֲנִיף אֶת-הָאָרֶץ; וְלָאָרֶץ לֹא-יְכֻפַּר, לַדָּם אֲשֶׁר שֻׁפַּךְ-בָּהּ, כִּי-אִם, בְּדַם שֹׁפְכוֹ.

33 So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are; for blood, it polluteth the land; and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.

לד  וְלֹא תְטַמֵּא אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אַתֶּם יֹשְׁבִים בָּהּ--אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי, שֹׁכֵן בְּתוֹכָהּ:  כִּי, אֲנִי יְהוָה--שֹׁכֵן, בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.  {פ}

34 And thou shalt not defile the land which ye inhabit, in the midst of which I dwell; for I the LORD dwell in the midst of the children of Israel.' {P}
א  וַיִּקְרְבוּ רָאשֵׁי הָאָבוֹת, לְמִשְׁפַּחַת בְּנֵי-גִלְעָד בֶּן-מָכִיר בֶּן-מְנַשֶּׁה--מִמִּשְׁפְּחֹת, בְּנֵי יוֹסֵף; וַיְדַבְּרוּ לִפְנֵי מֹשֶׁה, וְלִפְנֵי הַנְּשִׂאִים--רָאשֵׁי אָבוֹת, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

1 And the heads of the fathers' houses of the family of the children of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of the sons of Joseph, came near, and spoke before Moses, and before the princes, the heads of the fathers' houses of the children of Israel;

ב  וַיֹּאמְרוּ, אֶת-אֲדֹנִי צִוָּה יְהוָה, לָתֵת אֶת-הָאָרֶץ בְּנַחֲלָה בְּגוֹרָל, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַאדֹנִי, צֻוָּה בַיהוָה, לָתֵת אֶת-נַחֲלַת צְלָפְחָד אָחִינוּ, לִבְנֹתָיו.

2 and they said: 'The LORD commanded my lord to give the land for 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.

ג  וְהָיוּ לְאֶחָד מִבְּנֵי שִׁבְטֵי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְנָשִׁים, וְנִגְרְעָה נַחֲלָתָן מִנַּחֲלַת אֲבֹתֵינוּ, וְנוֹסַף עַל נַחֲלַת הַמַּטֶּה אֲשֶׁר תִּהְיֶינָה לָהֶם; וּמִגֹּרַל נַחֲלָתֵנוּ, יִגָּרֵעַ.

3 And if they be married to any of the sons of the other tribes of the children of Israel, then will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of our fathers, and will be added to the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong; so will it be taken away from the lot of our inheritance.

ד  וְאִם-יִהְיֶה הַיֹּבֵל, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְנוֹסְפָה נַחֲלָתָן, עַל נַחֲלַת הַמַּטֶּה אֲשֶׁר תִּהְיֶינָה לָהֶם; וּמִנַּחֲלַת מַטֵּה אֲבֹתֵינוּ, יִגָּרַע נַחֲלָתָן.

4 And when the jubilee of the children of Israel shall be, then will their inheritance be added unto the inheritance of the tribe whereunto they shall belong; so will their inheritance be taken away from the inheritance of the tribe of our fathers.'

ה  וַיְצַו מֹשֶׁה אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, עַל-פִּי יְהוָה לֵאמֹר:  כֵּן מַטֵּה בְנֵי-יוֹסֵף, דֹּבְרִים.

5 And Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the LORD, saying: 'The tribe of the sons of Joseph speaketh right.

ו  זֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, לִבְנוֹת צְלָפְחָד לֵאמֹר, לַטּוֹב בְּעֵינֵיהֶם, תִּהְיֶינָה לְנָשִׁים:  אַךְ, לְמִשְׁפַּחַת מַטֵּה אֲבִיהֶם--תִּהְיֶינָה לְנָשִׁים.

6 This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded concerning the daughters of Zelophehad, saying: Let them be married to whom they think best; only into the family of the tribe of their father shall they be married.

ז  וְלֹא-תִסֹּב נַחֲלָה לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִמַּטֶּה אֶל-מַטֶּה:  כִּי אִישׁ, בְּנַחֲלַת מַטֵּה אֲבֹתָיו, יִדְבְּקוּ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

7 So shall no inheritance of the children of Israel remove from tribe to tribe; for the children of Israel shall cleave every one to the inheritance of the tribe of his fathers.

ח  וְכָל-בַּת יֹרֶשֶׁת נַחֲלָה, מִמַּטּוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--לְאֶחָד מִמִּשְׁפַּחַת מַטֵּה אָבִיהָ, תִּהְיֶה לְאִשָּׁה:  לְמַעַן, יִירְשׁוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אִישׁ, נַחֲלַת אֲבֹתָיו.

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 possess every man the inheritance of his fathers.

ט  וְלֹא-תִסֹּב נַחֲלָה מִמַּטֶּה, לְמַטֶּה אַחֵר:  כִּי-אִישׁ, בְּנַחֲלָתוֹ, יִדְבְּקוּ, מַטּוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

9 So shall no inheritance remove from one tribe to another tribe; for the tribes of the children of Israel shall cleave each one to its own inheritance.'

י  כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה, כֵּן עָשׂוּ, בְּנוֹת צְלָפְחָד.

10 Even as the LORD commanded Moses, so did the daughters of Zelophehad.

יא  וַתִּהְיֶינָה מַחְלָה תִרְצָה, וְחָגְלָה וּמִלְכָּה וְנֹעָה--בְּנוֹת צְלָפְחָד:  לִבְנֵי דֹדֵיהֶן, לְנָשִׁים.

11 For Mahlah, Tirzah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Noah, the daughters of Zelophehad, were married unto their father's brothers' sons.

יב  מִמִּשְׁפְּחֹת בְּנֵי-מְנַשֶּׁה בֶן-יוֹסֵף, הָיוּ לְנָשִׁים; וַתְּהִי, נַחֲלָתָן, עַל-מַטֵּה, מִשְׁפַּחַת אֲבִיהֶן.

12 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.

יג  אֵלֶּה הַמִּצְו‍ֹת וְהַמִּשְׁפָּטִים, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה--אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  בְּעַרְבֹת מוֹאָב, עַל יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחוֹ.  {ש}

13 These are the commandments and the ordinances, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. {P}
