[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36]

17:1 (17:16) And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

17:2 (17:17) '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.

17:3 (17:18) 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.

17:4 (17:19) And thou shalt lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you.

17:5 (17:20) 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.'

17:6 (17:21) 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.

17:7 (17:22) And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony.

17:8 (17:23) 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.

17:9 (17:24) 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.

17:10 (17:25) 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.'

17:11 (17:26) Thus did Moses; as the LORD commanded him, so did he.

17:12 (17:27) And the children of Israel spoke unto Moses, saying: 'Behold, we perish, we are undone, we are all undone.

17:13 (17:28) Every one that cometh near, that cometh near unto the tabernacle of the LORD, is to die; shall we wholly perish?'
