<< Numbers 4 | Numbers 5-6 | Numbers 7 >>

The Unclean Driven from the Camp

5 1  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2  'Command the sons of Israel, and they send out of the camp every leper, and every one with an issue, and every one defiled by a body; 3  from male unto female ye do send out; unto the outside of the camp ye do send them; and they defile not their camps in the midst of which I do tabernacle.' 4  And the sons of Israel do so, and they send them out unto the outside of the camp; as Jehovah hath spoken unto Moses so have the sons of Israel done.

The Law of Recompense

5  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 6  'Speak unto the sons of Israel, Man or woman, when they do any of the sins of man, by committing a trespass against Jehovah, and that person 'is' guilty, 7  and they have confessed their sin which they have done, then he hath restored his guilt in its principal, and its fifth is adding to it, and hath given 'it' to him in reference to whom he hath been guilty. 8  'And if the man have no redeemer to restore the guilt to, the guilt which is restored 'is' Jehovah's, the priest's, apart from the ram of the atonements, whereby he maketh atonement for him. 9  'And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they bring near to the priest, becometh his; 10  and any man's hallowed things become his; that which any man giveth to the priest becometh his.'

The Law concerning Jealousy

11  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 12  'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When any man's wife turneth aside, and hath committed against him a trespass, 13  and a man hath lain with her 'with' the seed of copulation, and it hath been hid from the eyes of her husband, and concealed, and she hath been defiled, and there is no witness against her, and she hath not been caught, 14  and a spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath been defiled;—or, a spirit of jealousy hath passed over him, and he hath been jealous of his wife, and she hath not been defiled— 15  'Then hath the man brought in his wife unto the priest, and he hath brought in her offering for her, a tenth of the ephah of barley meal, he doth not pour on it oil, nor doth he put on it frankincense, for it 'is' a present of jealousy, a present of memorial, causing remembrance of iniquity. 16  'And the priest hath brought her near, and hath caused her to stand before Jehovah, 17  and the priest hath taken holy water in an earthen vessel, and of the dust which is on the floor of the tabernacle doth the priest take, and hath put 'it' into the water, 18  and the priest hath caused the woman to stand before Jehovah, and hath uncovered the woman's head, and hath given into her hands the present of the memorial, it 'is' a present of jealousy, and in the hand of the priest are the bitter waters which cause the curse. 19  'And the priest hath caused her to swear, and hath said unto the woman, If no man hath lain with thee, and if thou hast not turned aside 'to' uncleanness under thy husband, be free from these bitter waters which cause the curse; 20  and thou, if thou hast turned aside under thy husband, and if thou hast been defiled, and any man doth give his copulation to thee besides thy husband— 21  (then the priest hath caused the woman to swear with an oath of execration, and the priest hath said to the woman)—Jehovah doth give thee for an execration, and for a curse, in the midst of thy people, in Jehovah's giving thy thigh to fall, and thy belly to swell, 22  and these waters which cause the curse have gone into thy bowels, to cause the belly to swell, and the thigh to fall; and the woman hath said, Amen, Amen. 23  'And the priest hath written these execrations in a book, and hath blotted 'them' out with the bitter waters, 24  and hath caused the woman to drink the bitter waters which cause the curse, and the waters which cause the curse have entered into her for bitter things. 25  'And the priest hath taken out of the hand of the woman the present of jealousy, and hath waved the present before Jehovah, and hath brought it near unto the altar; 26  and the priest hath taken a handful of the present, its memorial, and hath made perfume on the altar, and afterwards doth cause the woman to drink the water: 27  yea, he hath caused her to drink the water, and it hath come to pass, if she hath been defiled, and doth commit a trespass against her husband, that the waters which cause the curse have gone into her for bitter things, and her belly hath swelled, and her thigh hath fallen, and the woman hath become an execration in the midst of her people. 28  'And if the woman hath not been defiled, and is clean, then she hath been acquitted, and hath been sown 'with' seed. 29  'This 'is' the law of jealousies, when a wife turneth aside under her husband, and hath been defiled, 30  or when a spirit of jealousy passeth over a man, and he hath been jealous of his wife, then he hath caused the woman to stand before Jehovah, and the priest hath done to her all this law, 31  and the man hath been acquitted from iniquity, and that woman doth bear her iniquity.'

The Law for the Nazarite

6 1  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2  'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When a man or woman doeth singularly, by vowing a vow of a Nazarite, to be separate to Jehovah; 3  from wine and strong drink he doth keep separate; vinegar of wine, and vinegar of strong drink he doth not drink, and any juice of grapes he doth not drink, and grapes moist or dry he doth not eat; 4  all days of his separation, of anything which is made of the wine-vine, from kernels even unto husk, he doth not eat. 5  'All days of the vow of his separation a razor doth not pass over his head; till the fulness of the days which he doth separate to Jehovah he is holy; grown up hath the upper part of the hair of his head. 6  'All days of his keeping separate to Jehovah, near a dead person he doth not go; 7  for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister—he is not unclean for them at their death, for the separation of his God 'is' on his head; 8  all days of his separation he 'is' holy to Jehovah. 9  'And when the dead dieth beside him in an instant, suddenly, and he hath defiled the head of his separation, then he hath shaved his head in the day of his cleansing; on the seventh day he doth shave it, 10  and on the eighth day he bringeth in two turtle-doves or two young pigeons unto the priest, unto the opening of the tent of meeting, 11  and the priest hath prepared one for a sin-offering, and one for a burnt-offering, and hath made atonement for him, because of that which he hath sinned by the body, and he hath hallowed his head on that day; 12  and he hath separated to Jehovah the days of his separation, and he hath brought in a lamb, a son of a year, for a guilt-offering, and the former days are fallen, for his separation hath been defiled. 13  'And this 'is' the law of the Nazarite; in the day of the fulness of the days of his separation doth 'one' bring him in unto the opening of the tent of meeting, 14  and he hath brought near his offering to Jehovah, one he-lamb, a son of a year, a perfect one, for a burnt-offering, and one she-lamb, a daughter of a year, a perfect one, for a sin-offering, and one ram, a perfect one, for peace-offerings, 15  and a basket of unleavened things of flour, cakes mixed with oil, and thin cakes of unleavened things anointed with oil, and their present, and their libations. 16  'And the priest hath brought 'them' near before Jehovah, and hath made his sin-offering and his burnt-offering; 17  and the ram he maketh a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Jehovah, besides the basket of unleavened things; and the priest hath made its present and its libation. 18  'And the Nazarite hath shaved (at the opening of the tent of meeting) the head of his separation, and hath taken the hair of the head of his separation, and hath put 'it' on the fire which 'is' under the sacrifice of the peace-offerings. 19  'And the priest hath taken the boiled shoulder from the ram, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one thin unleavened cake, and hath put on the palms of the Nazarite after his shaving his separation; 20  and the priest hath waved them, a wave-offering before Jehovah; it 'is' holy to the priest, besides the breast of the wave-offering, and besides the leg of the heave-offering; and afterwards doth the Nazarite drink wine. 21  'This 'is' the law of the Nazarite, who voweth his offering to Jehovah for his separation, apart from that which his hand attaineth; according to his vow which he voweth so he doth by the law of his separation.'

The Priestly Benediction

22  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 23  'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, saying, Thus ye do bless the sons of Israel, saying to them, 24  'Jehovah bless thee and keep thee; 25  'Jehovah cause His face to shine upon thee, and favour thee; 26  'Jehovah lift up His countenance upon thee, and appoint for thee—peace. 27  'And they have put My name upon the sons of Israel, and I—I do bless them.'
