, - . 1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
- - , - , -, -: , . 2 'Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the fire-pans out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are become holy;
, --- -, ; , . 3 even the fire-pans of these men who have sinned at the cost of their lives, and let them be made beaten plates for a covering of the altar--for they are become holy, because they were offered before the LORD--that they may be a sign unto the children of Israel.'
, , , ; , . 4 And Eleazar the priest took the brazen fire-pans, which they that were burnt had offered; and they beat them out for a covering of the altar,
, - , , ; - , - . {} 5 to be a memorial unto the children of Israel, to the end that no common man, that is not of the seed of Aaron, draw near to burn incense before the LORD; that he fare not as Korah, and as his company; as the LORD spoke unto him by the hand of Moses. {P}
- -, , - -, : , - . 6 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.'
, - -, - , ; , . 7 And it came to pass, when the congregation was assembled against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tent of meeting; and, behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the LORD appeared.
, - . {} 8 And Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tent of meeting. {S}
, - . 9 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
, , , ; , -. 10 'Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.' And they fell upon their faces.
-, - - , -, : - , . 11 And Moses said unto Aaron: 'Take thy fire-pan, and put fire therein from off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly unto the congregation, and make atonement for them; for there is wrath gone out from the LORD: the plague is begun.'
, - , , ; , -, , -. 12 And Aaron took as Moses spoke, and ran into the midst of the assembly; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people; and he put on the incense, and made atonement for the people.
-, ; , . 13 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.
, , , -- , --. 14 Now they that died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides them that died about the matter of Korah.
-, - ; , . {} 15 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tent of meeting, and the plague was stayed. {P}
, - . 16 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
- , - -- , : -, -. 17 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of them rods, one for each fathers' house, of all their princes according to their fathers' houses, twelve rods; thou shalt write every man's name upon his rod.
, - : , . 18 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi, for there shall be one rod for the head of their fathers' houses.
, --, , , . 19 And thou shalt lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you.
, --- ; , - , , . 20 And it shall come to pass, that the man whom I shall choose, his rod shall bud; and I will make to cease from Me the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against you.'
- , - -- , ; , . 21 And Moses spoke unto the children of Israel; and all their princes gave him rods, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.
-, , , . 22 And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony.
, - , -, ; , . 23 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses went into the tent of the testimony; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and put forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and bore ripe almonds.
-- , -- ; , . {} 24 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. {P}
-, - , , -; , . 25 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Put back the rod of Aaron before the testimony, to be kept there, for a token against the rebellious children; that there may be made an end of their murmurings against Me, that they die not.'
, : , . {} 26 Thus did Moses; as the LORD commanded him, so did he. {P}
, - : , . 27 And the children of Israel spoke unto Moses, saying: 'Behold, we perish, we are undone, we are all undone.
- , ; , ‍. {} 28 Every one that cometh near, that cometh near unto the tabernacle of the LORD, is to die; shall we wholly perish?' {S}
