Numbers 18


1  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Aaron,175 Thou859 and thy sons1121 and thy father's1 house1004 with854 thee shall bear5375 853 the iniquity5771 of the sanctuary:4720 and thou859 and thy sons1121 with854 thee shall bear5375 853 the iniquity5771 of your priesthood.3550

2  And 853 thy brethren251 also1571 of the tribe4294 of Levi,3878 the tribe7626 of thy father,1 bring7126 thou with854 thee, that they may be joined3867 unto5921 thee, and minister8334 unto thee: but thou859 and thy sons1121 with854 thee shall minister before6440 the tabernacle168 of witness.5715

3  And they shall keep8104 thy charge,4931 and the charge4931 of all3605 the tabernacle:168 only389 they shall not3808 come nigh7126 413 the vessels3627 of the sanctuary6944 and the altar,4196 that neither3808 1571 they,1992 nor ye859 also,1571 die.4191

4  And they shall be joined3867 unto5921 thee, and keep8104 853 the charge4931 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 for all3605 the service5656 of the tabernacle:168 and a stranger2114 shall not3808 come nigh7126 unto413 you.

5  And ye shall keep8104 853 the charge4931 of the sanctuary,6944 and the charge4931 of the altar:4196 that there be1961 no3808 wrath7110 any more5750 upon5921 the children1121 of Israel.3478

6  And I,589 behold,2009 I have taken3947 853 your brethren251 the Levites3881 from among4480 8432 the children1121 of Israel:3478 to you they are given5414 as a gift4979 for the LORD,3068 to do5647 853 the service5656 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation.4150

7  Therefore thou859 and thy sons1121 with854 thee shall keep8104 853 your priest's office3550 for every3605 thing1697 of the altar,4196 and within4480 1004 the veil;6532 and ye shall serve:5647 I have given5414 853 your priest's office3550 unto you as a service5656 of gift:4979 and the stranger2114 that cometh nigh7131 shall be put to death.4191

8  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Aaron,175 Behold,2009 I589 also have given5414 thee 853 the charge4931 of mine heave offerings8641 of all3605 the hallowed things6944 of the children1121 of Israel;3478 unto thee have I given5414 them by reason of the anointing,4888 and to thy sons,1121 by an ordinance2706 forever.5769

9  This2088 shall be1961 thine of the most holy things,4480 6944 6944 reserved from4480 the fire:784 every3605 oblation7133 of theirs, every3605 meat offering4503 of theirs, and every3605 sin offering2403 of theirs, and every3605 trespass offering817 of theirs, which834 they shall render7725 unto me, shall be most holy6944 6944 for thee and for thy sons.1121

10  In the most holy6944 6944 place shalt thou eat398 it; every3605 male2145 shall eat398 it: it shall be1961 holy6944 unto thee.

11  And this2088 is thine; the heave offering8641 of their gift,4976 with all3605 the wave offerings8573 of the children1121 of Israel:3478 I have given5414 them unto thee, and to thy sons1121 and to thy daughters1323 with854 thee, by a statute2706 forever:5769 every one3605 that is clean2889 in thy house1004 shall eat398 of it.

12  All3605 the best2459 of the oil,3323 and all3605 the best2459 of the wine,8492 and of the wheat,1715 the firstfruits7225 of them which834 they shall offer5414 unto the LORD,3068 them have I given5414 thee.

13  And whatsoever3605 834 is first ripe1061 in the land,776 which834 they shall bring935 unto the LORD,3068 shall be1961 thine; every one3605 that is clean2889 in thine house1004 shall eat398 of it.

14  Every thing3605 devoted2764 in Israel3478 shall be1961 thine.

15  Every thing3605 that openeth6363 the matrix7358 in all3605 flesh,1320 which834 they bring7126 unto the LORD,3068 whether it be of men120 or beasts,929 shall be1961 thine: nevertheless389 853 the firstborn1060 of man120 shalt thou surely redeem,6299 6299 and the firstling1060 of unclean2931 beasts929 shalt thou redeem.6299

16  And those that are to be redeemed6299 from a month2320 old4480 1121 shalt thou redeem,6299 according to thine estimation,6187 for the money3701 of five2568 shekels,8255 after the shekel8255 of the sanctuary,6944 which1931 is twenty6242 gerahs.1626

17  But389 the firstling1060 of a cow,7794 or176 the firstling1060 of a sheep,3775 or176 the firstling1060 of a goat,5795 thou shalt not3808 redeem;6299 they1992 are holy:6944 thou shalt sprinkle2236 853 their blood1818 upon5921 the altar,4196 and shalt burn6999 their fat2459 for an offering made by fire,801 for a sweet5207 savor7381 unto the LORD.3068

18  And the flesh1320 of them shall be1961 thine, as the wave8573 breast2373 and as the right3225 shoulder7785 are1961 thine.

19  All3605 the heave offerings8641 of the holy things,6944 which834 the children1121 of Israel3478 offer7311 unto the LORD,3068 have I given5414 thee, and thy sons1121 and thy daughters1323 with854 thee, by a statute2706 forever:5769 it1931 is a covenant1285 of salt4417 forever5769 before6440 the LORD3068 unto thee and to thy seed2233 with854 thee.

20  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Aaron,175 Thou shalt have no inheritance5157 3808 in their land,776 neither3808 shalt thou have1961 any part2506 among8432 them: I589 am thy part2506 and thine inheritance5159 among8432 the children1121 of Israel.3478

21  And, behold,2009 I have given5414 the children1121 of Levi3878 all3605 the tenth4643 in Israel3478 for an inheritance,5159 for2500 their service5656 which834 they1992 serve,5647 even 853 the service5656 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation.4150

22  Neither3808 must the children1121 of Israel3478 henceforth5750 come nigh7126 413 the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 lest they bear5375 sin,2399 and die.4191

23  But the Levites3881 shall do5647 853 the service5656 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 and they1992 shall bear5375 their iniquity:5771 it shall be a statute2708 forever5769 throughout your generations,1755 that among8432 the children1121 of Israel3478 they have5157 no3808 inheritance.5159

24  But3588 853 the tithes4643 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 which834 they offer7311 as a heave offering8641 unto the LORD,3068 I have given5414 to the Levites3881 to inherit:5159 therefore5921 3651 I have said559 unto them, Among8432 the children1121 of Israel3478 they shall have5157 no3808 inheritance.5159

25  And the LORD3068 spoke1696 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

26  Thus speak1696 unto413 the Levites,3881 and say559 unto413 them, When3588 ye take3947 of4480 854 the children1121 of Israel3478 853 the tithes4643 which834 I have given5414 you from4480 854 them for your inheritance,5159 then ye shall offer up7311 a heave offering8641 of4480 it for the LORD,3068 even a tenth4643 part of4480 the tithe.4643

27  And this your heave offering8641 shall be reckoned2803 unto you, as though it were the corn1715 of4480 the threshingfloor,1637 and as the fullness4395 of4480 the winepress.3342

28  Thus3651 ye859 also1571 shall offer7311 a heave offering8641 unto the LORD3068 of all4480 3605 your tithes,4643 which834 ye receive3947 of4480 854 the children1121 of Israel;3478 and ye shall give5414 thereof4480 853 the LORD's3068 heave offering8641 to Aaron175 the priest.3548

29  Out of all4480 3605 your gifts4979 ye shall offer7311 853 every3605 heave offering8641 of the LORD,3068 of all4480 3605 the best2459 thereof, even 853 the hallowed part4720 thereof out of4480 it.

30  Therefore thou shalt say559 unto413 them, When ye have heaved7311 853 the best2459 thereof from4480 it, then it shall be counted2803 unto the Levites3881 as the increase8393 of the threshingfloor,1637 and as the increase8393 of the winepress.3342

31  And ye shall eat398 it in every3605 place,4725 ye859 and your households:1004 for3588 it1931 is your reward7939 for2500 your service5656 in the tabernacle168 of the congregation.4150

32  And ye shall bear5375 no3808 sin2399 by reason of5921 it, when ye have heaved7311 from it 853 the best2459 of4480 it: neither3808 shall ye pollute2490 the holy things6944 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 lest3808 ye die.4191


1 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Ααρων λέγων σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου καὶ ὁ οἶκος πατριᾶς σου λήμψεσθε τὰς ἁμαρτίας τῶν ἁγίων καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου λήμψεσθε τὰς ἁμαρτίας τῆς ἱερατείας ὑμῶν

2 καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφούς σου φυλὴν Λευι δῆμον τοῦ πατρός σου προσαγάγου πρὸς σεαυτόν καὶ προστεθήτωσάν σοι καὶ λειτουργείτωσάν σοι καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου μετὰ σοῦ ἀπέναντι τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου

3 καὶ φυλάξονται τὰς φυλακάς σου καὶ τὰς φυλακὰς τῆς σκηνῆς πλὴν πρὸς τὰ σκεύη τὰ ἅγια καὶ πρὸς τὸ θυσιαστήριον οὐ προσελεύσονται καὶ οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται καὶ οὗτοι καὶ ὑμεῖς

4 καὶ προστεθήσονται πρὸς σὲ καὶ φυλάξονται τὰς φυλακὰς τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου κατὰ πάσας τὰς λειτουργίας τῆς σκηνῆς καὶ ὁ ἀλλογενὴς οὐ προσελεύσεται πρὸς σέ

5 καὶ φυλάξεσθε τὰς φυλακὰς τῶν ἁγίων καὶ τὰς φυλακὰς τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ οὐκ ἔσται θυμὸς ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ

6 καὶ ἐγὼ εἴληφα τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν τοὺς Λευίτας ἐκ μέσου τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ δόμα δεδομένον κυρίῳ λειτουργεῖν τὰς λειτουργίας τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου

7 καὶ σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου μετὰ σοῦ διατηρήσετε τὴν ἱερατείαν ὑμῶν κατὰ πάντα τρόπον τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ τὸ ἔνδοθεν τοῦ καταπετάσματος καὶ λειτουργήσετε τὰς λειτουργίας δόμα τῆς ἱερατείας ὑμῶν καὶ ὁ ἀλλογενὴς ὁ προσπορευόμενος ἀποθανεῖται

8 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Ααρων καὶ ἐγὼ ἰδοὺ δέδωκα ὑμῖν τὴν διατήρησιν τῶν ἀπαρχῶν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἡγιασμένων μοι παρὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτὰ εἰς γέρας καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου μετὰ σέ νόμιμον αἰώνιον

9 καὶ τοῦτο ἔστω ὑμῖν ἀπὸ τῶν ἡγιασμένων ἁγίων τῶν καρπωμάτων ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν δώρων αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν θυσιασμάτων αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ πάσης πλημμελείας αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπὸ πασῶν τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ὅσα ἀποδιδόασίν μοι ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἁγίων σοὶ ἔσται καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου

10 ἐν τῷ ἁγίῳ τῶν ἁγίων φάγεσθε αὐτά πᾶν ἀρσενικὸν φάγεται αὐτά σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου ἅγια ἔσται σοι

11 καὶ τοῦτο ἔσται ὑμῖν ἀπαρχὴ δομάτων αὐτῶν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐπιθεμάτων τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτὰ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου καὶ ταῖς θυγατράσιν σου μετὰ σοῦ νόμιμον αἰώνιον πᾶς καθαρὸς ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου ἔδεται αὐτά

12 πᾶσα ἀπαρχὴ ἐλαίου καὶ πᾶσα ἀπαρχὴ οἴνου καὶ σίτου ἀπαρχὴ αὐτῶν ὅσα ἂν δῶσι τῷ κυρίῳ σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτά

13 τὰ πρωτογενήματα πάντα ὅσα ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν ὅσα ἂν ἐνέγκωσιν κυρίῳ σοὶ ἔσται πᾶς καθαρὸς ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου ἔδεται αὐτά

14 πᾶν ἀνατεθεματισμένον ἐν υἱοῖς Ισραηλ σοὶ ἔσται

15 καὶ πᾶν διανοῖγον μήτραν ἀπὸ πάσης σαρκός ἃ προσφέρουσιν κυρίῳ ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους σοὶ ἔσται ἀλλ᾽ ἢ λύτροις λυτρωθήσεται τὰ πρωτότοκα τῶν ἀνθρώπων καὶ τὰ πρωτότοκα τῶν κτηνῶν τῶν ἀκαθάρτων λυτρώσῃ

16 καὶ ἡ λύτρωσις αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ μηνιαίου ἡ συντίμησις πέντε σίκλων κατὰ τὸν σίκλον τὸν ἅγιον εἴκοσι ὄβολοί εἰσιν

17 πλὴν πρωτότοκα μόσχων καὶ πρωτότοκα προβάτων καὶ πρωτότοκα αἰγῶν οὐ λυτρώσῃ ἅγιά ἐστιν καὶ τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶν προσχεεῖς πρὸς τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ τὸ στέαρ ἀνοίσεις κάρπωμα εἰς ὀσμὴν εὐωδίας κυρίῳ

18 καὶ τὰ κρέα ἔσται σοί καθὰ καὶ τὸ στηθύνιον τοῦ ἐπιθέματος καὶ κατὰ τὸν βραχίονα τὸν δεξιὸν σοὶ ἔσται

19 πᾶν ἀφαίρεμα τῶν ἁγίων ὅσα ἂν ἀφέλωσιν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ κυρίῳ σοὶ δέδωκα καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς σου καὶ ταῖς θυγατράσιν σου μετὰ σοῦ νόμιμον αἰώνιον διαθήκη ἁλὸς αἰωνίου ἐστὶν ἔναντι κυρίου σοὶ καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου μετὰ σέ

20 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Ααρων ἐν τῇ γῇ αὐτῶν οὐ κληρονομήσεις καὶ μερὶς οὐκ ἔσται σοι ἐν αὐτοῖς ὅτι ἐγὼ μερίς σου καὶ κληρονομία σου ἐν μέσῳ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

21 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευι ἰδοὺ δέδωκα πᾶν ἐπιδέκατον ἐν Ισραηλ ἐν κλήρῳ ἀντὶ τῶν λειτουργιῶν αὐτῶν ὅσα αὐτοὶ λειτουργοῦσιν λειτουργίαν ἐν τῇ σκηνῇ τοῦ μαρτυρίου

22 καὶ οὐ προσελεύσονται ἔτι οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου λαβεῖν ἁμαρτίαν θανατηφόρον

23 καὶ λειτουργήσει ὁ Λευίτης αὐτὸς τὴν λειτουργίαν τῆς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ αὐτοὶ λήμψονται τὰ ἁμαρτήματα αὐτῶν νόμιμον αἰώνιον εἰς τὰς γενεὰς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν μέσῳ υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὐ κληρονομήσουσιν κληρονομίαν

24 ὅτι τὰ ἐπιδέκατα τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ὅσα ἂν ἀφορίσωσιν κυρίῳ ἀφαίρεμα δέδωκα τοῖς Λευίταις ἐν κλήρῳ διὰ τοῦτο εἴρηκα αὐτοῖς ἐν μέσῳ υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὐ κληρονομήσουσιν κλῆρον

25 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

26 καὶ τοῖς Λευίταις λαλήσεις καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς ἐὰν λάβητε παρὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ τὸ ἐπιδέκατον ὃ δέδωκα ὑμῖν παρ᾽ αὐτῶν ἐν κλήρῳ καὶ ἀφελεῖτε ὑμεῖς ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἀφαίρεμα κυρίῳ ἐπιδέκατον ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐπιδεκάτου

27 καὶ λογισθήσεται ὑμῖν τὰ ἀφαιρέματα ὑμῶν ὡς σῖτος ἀπὸ ἅλω καὶ ἀφαίρεμα ἀπὸ ληνοῦ

28 οὕτως ἀφελεῖτε καὶ ὑμεῖς ἀπὸ τῶν ἀφαιρεμάτων κυρίου ἀπὸ πάντων ἐπιδεκάτων ὑμῶν ὅσα ἐὰν λάβητε παρὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ καὶ δώσετε ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀφαίρεμα κυρίῳ Ααρων τῷ ἱερεῖ

29 ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν δομάτων ὑμῶν ἀφελεῖτε ἀφαίρεμα κυρίῳ ἢ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἀπαρχῶν τὸ ἡγιασμένον ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

30 καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς ὅταν ἀφαιρῆτε τὴν ἀπαρχὴν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ λογισθήσεται τοῖς Λευίταις ὡς γένημα ἀπὸ ἅλω καὶ ὡς γένημα ἀπὸ ληνοῦ

31 καὶ ἔδεσθε αὐτὸ ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ οἶκοι ὑμῶν ὅτι μισθὸς οὗτος ὑμῖν ἐστιν ἀντὶ τῶν λειτουργιῶν ὑμῶν τῶν ἐν τῇ σκηνῇ τοῦ μαρτυρίου

32 καὶ οὐ λήμψεσθε δι᾽ αὐτὸ ἁμαρτίαν ὅτι ἂν ἀφαιρῆτε τὴν ἀπαρχὴν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἅγια τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὐ βεβηλώσετε ἵνα μὴ ἀποθάνητε

1 Dixitque Dominus ad Aaron: Tu, et filii tui, et domus patris tui tecum, portabitis iniquitatem sanctuarii: et tu et filii tui simul sustinebitis peccata sacerdotii vestri.

2 Sed et fratres tuos de tribu Levi, et sceptrum patris tui sume tecum, præstoque sint, et ministrent tibi: tu autem et filii tui ministrabitis in tabernaculo testimonii.

3 Excubabuntque Levitæ ad præcepta tua, et ad cuncta opera tabernaculi: ita dumtaxat ut ad vasa sanctuarii et ad altare non accedant, ne et illi moriantur, et vos pereatis simul.

4 Sint autem tecum, et excubent in custodiis tabernaculi, et in omnibus cæremoniis ejus. Alienigena non miscebitur vobis.

5 Excubate in custodia sanctuarii, et in ministerio altaris: ne oriatur indignatio super filios Israël.

6 Ego dedi vobis fratres vestros Levitas de medio filiorum Israël, et tradidi donum Domino, ut serviant in ministeriis tabernaculi ejus.

7 Tu autem et filii tui custodite sacerdotium vestrum: et omnia quæ ad cultum altaris pertinent, et intra velum sunt, per sacerdotes administrabuntur: si quis externus accesserit, occidetur.

8 Locutusque est Dominus ad Aaron: Ecce dedi tibi custodiam primitiarum mearum. Omnia quæ sanctificantur a filiis Israël, tradidi tibi et filiis tuis pro officio sacerdotali legitima sempiterna.

9 Hæc ergo accipies de his, quæ sanctificantur et oblata sunt Domino. Omnis oblatio, et sacrificium, et quidquid pro peccato atque delicto redditur mihi, et cedit in Sancta sanctorum, tuum erit, et filiorum tuorum.

10 In sanctuario comedes illud: mares tantum edent ex eo, quia consecratum est tibi.

11 Primitias autem, quas voverint et obtulerint filii Israël, tibi dedi, et filiis tuis, ac filiabus tuis, jure perpetuo: qui mundus est in domo tua, vescetur eis.

12 Omnem medullam olei, et vini, ac frumenti, quidquid offerunt primitiarum Domino, tibi dedi.

13 Universa frugum initia, quas gignit humus, et Domino deportantur, cedent in usus tuos: qui mundus est in domo tua, vescetur eis.

14 Omne quod ex voto reddiderint filii Israël, tuum erit.

15 Quidquid primum erumpit e vulva cunctæ carnis, quam offerunt Domino, sive ex hominibus, sive de pecoribus fuerit, tui juris erit: ita dumtaxat ut pro hominis primogenito pretium accipias, et omne animal quod immundum est redimi facias,

16 cujus redemptio erit post unum mensem, siclis argenti quinque, pondere sanctuarii. Siclus viginti obolos habet.

17 Primogenitum autem bovis, et ovis, et capræ, non facies redimi, quia sanctificata sunt Domino. Sanguinem tantum eorum fundes super altare, et adipes adolebis in suavissimum odorem Domino.

18 Carnes vero in usum tuum cedent, sicut pectusculum consecratum, et armus dexter: tua erunt.

19 Omnes primitias sanctuarii, quas offerunt filii Israël Domino, tibi dedi, et filiis, ac filiabus tuis, jure perpetuo. Pactum salis est sempiternum coram Domino, tibi ac filiis tuis.

20 Dixitque Dominus ad Aaron: In terra eorum nihil possidebitis, nec habebitis partem inter eos: ego pars et hæreditas tua in medio filiorum Israël.

21 Filiis autem Levi dedi omnes decimas Israëlis in possessionem, pro ministerio, quo serviunt mihi in tabernaculo fœderis:

22 ut non accedant ultra filii Israël ad tabernaculum, nec committant peccatum mortiferum,

23 solis filiis Levi mihi in tabernaculo servientibus, et portantibus peccata populi. Legitimum sempiternum erit in generationibus vestris. Nihil aliud possidebunt,

24 decimarum oblatione contenti, quas in usus eorum et necessaria separavi.

25 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

26 Præcipe Levitis, atque denuntia: Cum acceperitis a filiis Israël decimas, quas dedi vobis, primitias earum offerte Domino, id est, decimam partem decimæ,

27 ut reputetur vobis in oblationem primitivorum, tam de areis quam de torcularibus:

28 et universis quorum accipitis primitias, offerte Domino, et date Aaron sacerdoti.

29 Omnia quæ offeretis ex decimis, et in donaria Domini separabitis, optima et electa erunt.

30 Dicesque ad eos: Si præclara et meliora quæque obtuleritis ex decimis, reputabitur vobis quasi de area, et torculari dederitis primitias:

31 et comedetis eas in omnibus locis vestris, tam vos quam familiæ vestræ: quia pretium est pro ministerio, quo servitis in tabernaculo testimonii.

32 Et non peccabitis super hoc, egregia vobis et pinguia reservantes, ne polluatis oblationes filiorum Israël, et moriamini.
