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

2  Avenge5358 5360 the children1121 of Israel3478 of4480 854 the Midianites:4084 afterward310 shalt thou be gathered622 unto413 thy people.5971

3  And Moses4872 spoke1696 unto413 the people,5971 saying,559 Arm2502 some376 of yourselves4480 854 unto the war,6635 and let them go1961 against5921 the Midianites,4080 and avenge5414 5360 the LORD3068 of Midian.4080

4  Of every tribe a thousand,4294 505 4294 505 throughout all3605 the tribes4294 of Israel,3478 shall ye send7971 to the war.6635

5  So there were delivered4560 out of the thousands4480 505 of Israel,3478 a thousand505 of every tribe,4294 twelve8147 6240 thousand505 armed2502 for war.6635

6  And Moses4872 sent7971 them to the war,6635 a thousand505 of every tribe4294 them, and Phinehas6372 the son1121 of Eleazar499 the priest,3548 to the war,6635 with the holy6944 instruments,3627 and the trumpets2689 to blow8643 in his hand.3027

7  And they warred6633 against5921 the Midianites,4080 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses;4872 and they slew2026 all3605 the males.2145

8  And they slew2026 the kings4428 of Midian,4080 beside5921 the rest of them that were slain;2491 namely, 853 Evi,189 and Rekem,7552 and Zur,6698 and Hur,2354 and Reba,7254 five2568 kings4428 of Midian:4080 Balaam1109 also the son1121 of Beor1160 they slew2026 with the sword.2719

9  And the children1121 of Israel3478 took all 853 the women802 of Midian4080 captives,7617 and their little ones,2945 and took the spoil962 of all3605 their cattle,929 and all3605 their flocks,4735 and all3605 their goods.2428

10  And they burnt8313 all3605 their cities5892 wherein they dwelt,4186 and all3605 their goodly castles,2918 with fire.784

11  And they took3947 853 all3605 the spoil,7998 and all3605 the prey,4455 both of men120 and of beasts.929

12  And they brought935 853 the captives,7628 and the prey,4455 and the spoil,7998 unto413 Moses,4872 and Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and unto413 the congregation5712 of the children1121 of Israel,3478 unto413 the camp4264 at413 the plains6160 of Moab,4124 which834 are by5921 Jordan3383 near Jericho.3405

13  And Moses,4872 and Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and all3605 the princes5387 of the congregation,5712 went forth3318 to meet7125 them without413 4480 2351 the camp.4264

14  And Moses4872 was wroth7107 with5921 the officers6485 of the host,2428 with the captains8269 over thousands,505 and captains8269 over hundreds,3967 which came935 from the battle.4480 6635 4421

15  And Moses4872 said559 unto413 them, Have ye saved all the women alive?2421 3605 5347

16  Behold,2005 these2007 caused1961 the children1121 of Israel,3478 through the counsel1697 of Balaam,1109 to commit4560 trespass4604 against the LORD3068 in5921 the matter1697 of Peor,6465 and there was1961 a plague4046 among the congregation5712 of the LORD.3068

17  Now6258 therefore kill2026 every3605 male2145 among the little ones,2945 and kill2026 every3605 woman802 that hath known3045 man376 by lying4904 with him.2145

18  But all3605 the women802 children,2945 that834 have not3808 known3045 a man2145 by lying4904 with him, keep alive2421 for yourselves.

19  And do ye859 abide2583 without4480 2351 the camp4264 seven7651 days:3117 whosoever3605 hath killed2026 any person,5315 and whosoever3605 hath touched5060 any slain,2491 purify2398 both yourselves859 and your captives7628 on the third7992 day,3117 and on the seventh7637 day.3117

20  And purify2398 all3605 your raiment,899 and all3605 that is made3627 of skins,5785 and all3605 work4639 of goats' 5795 hair, and all3605 things3627 made of wood.6086

21  And Eleazar499 the priest3548 said559 unto413 the men376 of war6635 which went935 to the battle,4421 This2063 is the ordinance2708 of the law8451 which834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses;4872

22  Only389 853 the gold,2091 and the silver,3701 853 the brass,5178 853 the iron,1270 853 the tin,913 and the lead,5777

23  Every3605 thing1697 that834 may abide935 the fire,784 ye shall make it go5674 through the fire,784 and it shall be clean:2891 nevertheless389 it shall be purified2398 with the water4325 of separation:5079 and all3605 that834 abideth935 not3808 the fire784 ye shall make go5674 through the water.4325

24  And ye shall wash3526 your clothes899 on the seventh7637 day,3117 and ye shall be clean,2891 and afterward310 ye shall come935 into413 the camp.4264

25  And the LORD3068 spoke559 unto413 Moses,4872 saying,559

26  Take5375 853 the sum7218 of the prey4455 that was taken,7628 both of man120 and of beast,929 thou,859 and Eleazar499 the priest,3548 and the chief7218 fathers1 of the congregation:5712

27  And divide2673 853 the prey4455 into two parts; between996 them that took8610 the war4421 upon them, who went out3318 to battle,6635 and between996 all3605 the congregation:5712

28  And levy7311 a tribute4371 unto the LORD3068 of4480 854 the men376 of war4421 which went out3318 to battle:6635 one259 soul5315 of five4480 2568 hundred,3967 both of4480 the persons,120 and of4480 the beefs,1241 and of4480 the asses,2543 and of4480 the sheep:6629

29  Take3947 it of their half,4480 4276 and give5414 it unto Eleazar499 the priest,3548 for a heave offering8641 of the LORD.3068

30  And of the children1121 of Israel's3478 half,4480 4276 thou shalt take3947 one259 portion270 of4480 fifty,2572 of4480 the persons,120 of4480 the beefs,1241 of4480 the asses,2543 and of4480 the flocks,6629 of all manner4480 3605 of beasts,929 and give5414 them unto the Levites,3881 which keep8104 the charge4931 of the tabernacle4908 of the LORD.3068

31  And Moses4872 and Eleazar499 the priest3548 did6213 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses.4872

32  And the booty,4455 being the rest3499 of the prey957 which834 the men5971 of war6635 had caught,962 was1961 six8337 hundred3967 thousand505 and seventy7657 thousand505 and five2568 thousand505 sheep,6629

33  And threescore and twelve8147 7657 thousand505 beefs,1241

34  And threescore8346 and one259 thousand505 asses,2543

35  And thirty7970 and two8147 thousand505 persons5315 120 in all,3605 5315 of4480 women802 that834 had not3808 known3045 man by lying with4904 him.2145

36  And the half,4275 which was the portion2506 of them that went out3318 to war,6635 was1961 in number4557 three7969 hundred3967 thousand505 and seven7651 and thirty7970 thousand505 and five2568 hundred3967 sheep:6629

37  And the LORD's3068 tribute4371 of4480 the sheep6629 was1961 six8337 hundred3967 and threescore and fifteen.2568 7657

38  And the beefs1241 were thirty7970 and six8337 thousand;505 of which the LORD's3068 tribute4371 was threescore and twelve.8147 7657

39  And the asses2543 were thirty7970 thousand505 and five2568 hundred;3967 of which the LORD's3068 tribute4371 was threescore8346 and one.259

40  And the persons5315 120 were sixteen8337 6240 thousand;505 of which the LORD's3068 tribute4371 was thirty7970 and two8147 persons.5315

41  And Moses4872 gave5414 853 the tribute,4371 which was the LORD's3068 heave offering,8641 unto Eleazar499 the priest,3548 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses.4872

42  And of the children1121 of Israel's3478 half,4480 4276 which834 Moses4872 divided2673 from4480 the men376 that warred,6633

43  (Now the half4275 that pertained unto the congregation5712 was1961 three7969 hundred3967 thousand505 and thirty7970 thousand505 and seven7651 thousand505 and five2568 hundred3967 sheep,6629

44  And thirty7970 and six8337 thousand505 beefs,1241

45  And thirty7970 thousand505 asses2543 and five2568 hundred,3967

46  And sixteen8337 6240 thousand505 persons;)5315 120

47  Even of the children1121 of Israel's3478 half,4480 4276 Moses4872 took3947 one259 853 portion270 of4480 fifty,2572 both of4480 man120 and of4480 beast,929 and gave5414 them unto the Levites,3881 which kept8104 the charge4931 of the tabernacle4908 of the LORD;3068 as834 the LORD3068 commanded6680 853 Moses.4872

48  And the officers6485 which834 were over thousands505 of the host,6635 the captains8269 of thousands,505 and captains8269 of hundreds,3967 came near7126 unto413 Moses:4872

49  And they said559 unto413 Moses,4872 Thy servants5650 have taken5375 853 the sum7218 of the men376 of war4421 which834 are under our charge,3027 and there lacketh6485 not3808 one man376 of4480 us.

50  We have therefore brought7126 853 an oblation7133 for the LORD,3068 what834 every man376 hath gotten,4672 of jewels3627 of gold,2091 chains,685 and bracelets,6781 rings,2885 earrings,5694 and tablets,3558 to make an atonement3722 for5921 our souls5315 before6440 the LORD.3068

51  And Moses4872 and Eleazar499 the priest3548 took3947 853 the gold2091 of4480 854 them, even all3605 wrought4639 jewels.3627

52  And all3605 the gold2091 of the offering8641 that834 they offered up7311 to the LORD,3068 of4480 854 the captains8269 of thousands,505 and of4480 854 the captains8269 of hundreds,3967 was1961 sixteen8337 6240 thousand505 seven7651 hundred3967 and fifty2572 shekels.8255

53  (For the men376 of war6635 had taken spoil,962 every man376 for himself.)

54  And Moses4872 and Eleazar499 the priest3548 took3947 853 the gold2091 of4480 854 the captains8269 of thousands505 and of hundreds,3967 and brought935 it into413 the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 for a memorial2146 for the children1121 of Israel3478 before6440 the LORD.3068


1 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

2 ἐκδίκει τὴν ἐκδίκησιν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἐκ τῶν Μαδιανιτῶν καὶ ἔσχατον προστεθήσῃ πρὸς τὸν λαόν σου

3 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Μωυσῆς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν λέγων ἐξοπλίσατε ἐξ ὑμῶν ἄνδρας παρατάξασθαι ἔναντι κυρίου ἐπὶ Μαδιαν ἀποδοῦναι ἐκδίκησιν παρὰ τοῦ κυρίου τῇ Μαδιαν

4 χιλίους ἐκ φυλῆς χιλίους ἐκ φυλῆς ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ ἀποστείλατε παρατάξασθαι

5 καὶ ἐξηρίθμησαν ἐκ τῶν χιλιάδων Ισραηλ χιλίους ἐκ φυλῆς δώδεκα χιλιάδες ἐνωπλισμένοι εἰς παράταξιν

6 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς Μωυσῆς χιλίους ἐκ φυλῆς χιλίους ἐκ φυλῆς σὺν δυνάμει αὐτῶν καὶ Φινεες υἱὸν Ελεαζαρ υἱοῦ Ααρων τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ τὰ σκεύη τὰ ἅγια καὶ αἱ σάλπιγγες τῶν σημασιῶν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν

7 καὶ παρετάξαντο ἐπὶ Μαδιαν καθὰ ἐνετείλατο κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ καὶ ἀπέκτειναν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν

8 καὶ τοὺς βασιλεῖς Μαδιαν ἀπέκτειναν ἅμα τοῖς τραυματίαις αὐτῶν καὶ τὸν Ευιν καὶ τὸν Σουρ καὶ τὸν Ροκομ καὶ τὸν Ουρ καὶ τὸν Ροβοκ πέντε βασιλεῖς Μαδιαν καὶ τὸν Βαλααμ υἱὸν Βεωρ ἀπέκτειναν ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ σὺν τοῖς τραυματίαις αὐτῶν

9 καὶ ἐπρονόμευσαν τὰς γυναῖκας Μαδιαν καὶ τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν καὶ πάντα τὰ ἔγκτητα αὐτῶν καὶ τὴν δύναμιν αὐτῶν ἐπρονόμευσαν

10 καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν τὰς ἐν ταῖς οἰκίαις αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς ἐπαύλεις αὐτῶν ἐνέπρησαν ἐν πυρί

11 καὶ ἔλαβον πᾶσαν τὴν προνομὴν καὶ πάντα τὰ σκῦλα αὐτῶν ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους

12 καὶ ἤγαγον πρὸς Μωυσῆν καὶ πρὸς Ελεαζαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ πρὸς πάντας υἱοὺς Ισραηλ τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν καὶ τὰ σκῦλα καὶ τὴν προνομὴν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν εἰς Αραβωθ Μωαβ ἥ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τοῦ Ιορδάνου κατὰ Ιεριχω

13 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ πάντες οἱ ἄρχοντες τῆς συναγωγῆς εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτοῖς ἔξω τῆς παρεμβολῆς

14 καὶ ὠργίσθη Μωυσῆς ἐπὶ τοῖς ἐπισκόποις τῆς δυνάμεως χιλιάρχοις καὶ ἑκατοντάρχοις τοῖς ἐρχομένοις ἐκ τῆς παρατάξεως τοῦ πολέμου

15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Μωυσῆς ἵνα τί ἐζωγρήσατε πᾶν θῆλυ

16 αὗται γὰρ ἦσαν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα Βαλααμ τοῦ ἀποστῆσαι καὶ ὑπεριδεῖν τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου ἕνεκεν Φογωρ καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ πληγὴ ἐν τῇ συναγωγῇ κυρίου

17 καὶ νῦν ἀποκτείνατε πᾶν ἀρσενικὸν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ἀπαρτίᾳ καὶ πᾶσαν γυναῖκα ἥτις ἔγνωκεν κοίτην ἄρσενος ἀποκτείνατε

18 πᾶσαν τὴν ἀπαρτίαν τῶν γυναικῶν ἥτις οὐκ οἶδεν κοίτην ἄρσενος ζωγρήσατε αὐτάς

19 καὶ ὑμεῖς παρεμβάλετε ἔξω τῆς παρεμβολῆς ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας πᾶς ὁ ἀνελὼν καὶ ὁ ἁπτόμενος τοῦ τετρωμένου ἁγνισθήσεται τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ ὑμεῖς καὶ ἡ αἰχμαλωσία ὑμῶν

20 καὶ πᾶν περίβλημα καὶ πᾶν σκεῦος δερμάτινον καὶ πᾶσαν ἐργασίαν ἐξ αἰγείας καὶ πᾶν σκεῦος ξύλινον ἀφαγνιεῖτε

21 καὶ εἶπεν Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς πρὸς τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς δυνάμεως τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἐκ τῆς παρατάξεως τοῦ πολέμου τοῦτο τὸ δικαίωμα τοῦ νόμου ὃ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

22 πλὴν τοῦ χρυσίου καὶ τοῦ ἀργυρίου καὶ χαλκοῦ καὶ σιδήρου καὶ μολίβου καὶ κασσιτέρου

23 πᾶν πρᾶγμα ὃ διελεύσεται ἐν πυρί καὶ καθαρισθήσεται ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τῷ ὕδατι τοῦ ἁγνισμοῦ ἁγνισθήσεται καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐὰν μὴ διαπορεύηται διὰ πυρός διελεύσεται δι᾽ ὕδατος

24 καὶ πλυνεῖσθε τὰ ἱμάτια τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ καὶ καθαρισθήσεσθε καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα εἰσελεύσεσθε εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν

25 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος πρὸς Μωυσῆν λέγων

26 λαβὲ τὸ κεφάλαιον τῶν σκύλων τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας ἀπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἕως κτήνους σὺ καὶ Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν τῆς συναγωγῆς

27 καὶ διελεῖτε τὰ σκῦλα ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν πολεμιστῶν τῶν ἐκπορευομένων εἰς τὴν παράταξιν καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον πάσης συναγωγῆς

28 καὶ ἀφελεῖτε τέλος κυρίῳ παρὰ τῶν ἀνθρώπων τῶν πολεμιστῶν τῶν ἐκπεπορευμένων εἰς τὴν παράταξιν μίαν ψυχὴν ἀπὸ πεντακοσίων ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν βοῶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν αἰγῶν

29 καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἡμίσους αὐτῶν λήμψεσθε καὶ δώσεις Ελεαζαρ τῷ ἱερεῖ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς κυρίου

30 καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἡμίσους τοῦ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ λήμψῃ ἕνα ἀπὸ τῶν πεντήκοντα ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν βοῶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ὄνων καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ δώσεις αὐτὰ τοῖς Λευίταις τοῖς φυλάσσουσιν τὰς φυλακὰς ἐν τῇ σκηνῇ κυρίου

31 καὶ ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς καθὰ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

32 καὶ ἐγενήθη τὸ πλεόνασμα τῆς προνομῆς ὃ ἐπρονόμευσαν οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταί ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων ἑξακόσιαι χιλιάδες καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα καὶ πέντε χιλιάδες

33 καὶ βόες δύο καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες

34 καὶ ὄνοι μία καὶ ἑξήκοντα χιλιάδες

35 καὶ ψυχαὶ ἀνθρώπων ἀπὸ τῶν γυναικῶν αἳ οὐκ ἔγνωσαν κοίτην ἀνδρός πᾶσαι ψυχαὶ δύο καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες

36 καὶ ἐγενήθη τὸ ἡμίσευμα ἡ μερὶς τῶν ἐκπεπορευμένων εἰς τὸν πόλεμον ἐκ τοῦ ἀριθμοῦ τῶν προβάτων τριακόσιαι καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ ἑπτακισχίλια καὶ πεντακόσια

37 καὶ ἐγένετο τὸ τέλος κυρίῳ ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων ἑξακόσια ἑβδομήκοντα πέντε

38 καὶ βόες ἓξ καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ τὸ τέλος κυρίῳ δύο καὶ ἑβδομήκοντα

39 καὶ ὄνοι τριάκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ πεντακόσιοι καὶ τὸ τέλος κυρίῳ εἷς καὶ ἑξήκοντα

40 καὶ ψυχαὶ ἀνθρώπων ἑκκαίδεκα χιλιάδες καὶ τὸ τέλος αὐτῶν κυρίῳ δύο καὶ τριάκοντα ψυχαί

41 καὶ ἔδωκεν Μωυσῆς τὸ τέλος κυρίῳ τὸ ἀφαίρεμα τοῦ θεοῦ Ελεαζαρ τῷ ἱερεῖ καθὰ συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

42 ἀπὸ τοῦ ἡμισεύματος τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὓς διεῖλεν Μωυσῆς ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πολεμιστῶν

43 καὶ ἐγένετο τὸ ἡμίσευμα τὸ τῆς συναγωγῆς ἀπὸ τῶν προβάτων τριακόσιαι χιλιάδες καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ ἑπτακισχίλια καὶ πεντακόσια

44 καὶ βόες ἓξ καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες

45 ὄνοι τριάκοντα χιλιάδες καὶ πεντακόσιοι

46 καὶ ψυχαὶ ἀνθρώπων ἓξ καὶ δέκα χιλιάδες

47 καὶ ἔλαβεν Μωυσῆς ἀπὸ τοῦ ἡμισεύματος τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ τὸ ἓν ἀπὸ τῶν πεντήκοντα ἀπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν κτηνῶν καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰ τοῖς Λευίταις τοῖς φυλάσσουσιν τὰς φυλακὰς τῆς σκηνῆς κυρίου ὃν τρόπον συνέταξεν κύριος τῷ Μωυσῇ

48 καὶ προσῆλθον πρὸς Μωυσῆν πάντες οἱ καθεσταμένοι εἰς τὰς χιλιαρχίας τῆς δυνάμεως χιλίαρχοι καὶ ἑκατόνταρχοι

49 καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς Μωυσῆν οἱ παῖδές σου εἰλήφασιν τὸ κεφάλαιον τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πολεμιστῶν τῶν παρ᾽ ἡμῶν καὶ οὐ διαπεφώνηκεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν οὐδὲ εἷς

50 καὶ προσενηνόχαμεν τὸ δῶρον κυρίῳ ἀνὴρ ὃ εὗρεν σκεῦος χρυσοῦν χλιδῶνα καὶ ψέλιον καὶ δακτύλιον καὶ περιδέξιον καὶ ἐμπλόκιον ἐξιλάσασθαι περὶ ἡμῶν ἔναντι κυρίου

51 καὶ ἔλαβεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς τὸ χρυσίον παρ᾽ αὐτῶν πᾶν σκεῦος εἰργασμένον

52 καὶ ἐγένετο πᾶν τὸ χρυσίον τὸ ἀφαίρεμα ὃ ἀφεῖλον κυρίῳ ἓξ καὶ δέκα χιλιάδες καὶ ἑπτακόσιοι καὶ πεντήκοντα σίκλοι παρὰ τῶν χιλιάρχων καὶ παρὰ τῶν ἑκατοντάρχων

53 καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταὶ ἐπρονόμευσαν ἕκαστος ἑαυτῷ

54 καὶ ἔλαβεν Μωυσῆς καὶ Ελεαζαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς τὸ χρυσίον παρὰ τῶν χιλιάρχων καὶ παρὰ τῶν ἑκατοντάρχων καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὰ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου μνημόσυνον τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἔναντι κυρίου

1 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

2 Ulciscere prius filios Israël de Madianitis, et sic colligeris ad populum tuum.

3 Statimque Moyses: Armate, inquit, ex vobis viros ad pugnam, qui possint ultionem Domini expetere de Madianitis.

4 Mille viri de singulis tribubus eligantur ex Israël qui mittantur ad bellum.

5 Dederuntque millenos de singulis tribubus, id est, duodecim millia expeditorum ad pugnam:

6 quos misit Moyses cum Phinees filio Eleazari sacerdotis, vasa quoque sancta, et tubas ad clangendum tradidit ei.

7 Cumque pugnassent contra Madianitas atque vicissent, omnes mares occiderunt,

8 et reges eorum, Evi, et Recem, et Sur, et Hur, et Rebe, quinque principes gentis: Balaam quoque filium Beor interfecerunt gladio.

9 Ceperuntque mulieres eorum, et parvulos, omniaque pecora, et cunctam supellectilem: quidquid habere potuerant depopulati sunt:

10 tam urbes quam viculos et castella flamma consumpsit.

11 Et tulerunt prædam, et universa quæ ceperant tam ex hominibus quam ex jumentis,

12 et adduxerunt ad Moysen, et Eleazarum sacerdotem, et ad omnem multitudinem filiorum Israël: reliqua autem utensilia portaverunt ad castra in campestribus Moab juxta Jordanem contra Jericho.

13 Egressi sunt autem Moyses et Eleazar sacerdos, et omnes principes synagogæ, in occursum eorum extra castra.

14 Iratusque Moyses principibus exercitus, tribunis, et centurionibus qui venerant de bello,

15 ait: Cur feminas reservastis?

16 nonne istæ sunt, quæ deceperunt filios Israël ad suggestionem Balaam, et prævaricari vos fecerunt in Domino super peccato Phogor, unde et percussus est populus?

17 ergo cunctos interficite quidquid est generis masculinis, etiam in parvulis: et mulieres, quæ noverunt viros in coitu, jugulate:

18 puellas autem et omnes feminas virgines reservate vobis:

19 et manete extra castra septem diebus. Qui occiderit hominem, vel occisum tetigerit, lustrabitur die tertio et septimo.

20 Et de omni præda, sive vestimentum fuerit, sive vas, et aliquid in utensilia præparatum, de caprarum pellibus, et pilis, et ligno, expiabitur.

21 Eleazar quoque sacerdos ad viros exercitus, qui pugnaverunt, sic locutus est: Hoc est præceptum legis, quod mandavit Dominus Moysi:

22 aurum, et argentum, et æs, et ferrum, et plumbum, et stannum,

23 et omne, quod potest transire per flammas, igne purgabitur: quidquid autem ignem non potest sustinere, aqua expiationis sanctificabitur:

24 et lavabitis vestimenta vestra die septimo, et purificati postea castra intrabitis.

25 Dixit quoque Dominus ad Moysen:

26 Tollite summam eorum quæ capta sunt, ab homine usque ad pecus, tu et Eleazar sacerdos et principes vulgi:

27 dividesque ex æquo prædam inter eos qui pugnaverunt egressique sunt ad bellum, et inter omnem reliquam multitudinem.

28 Et separabis partem Domino ab his qui pugnaverunt et fuerunt in bello, unam animam de quingentis, tam ex hominibus quam ex bobus et asinis et ovibus,

29 et dabis eam Eleazaro sacerdoti, quia primitiæ Domini sunt.

30 Ex media quoque parte filiorum Israël accipies quinquagesimum caput hominum, et boum, et asinorum, et ovium, cunctorum animantium, et dabis ea Levitis, qui excubant in custodiis tabernaculi Domini.

31 Feceruntque Moyses et Eleazar sicut præceperat Dominus.

32 Fuit autem præda, quam exercitus ceperat, ovium sexcenta septuaginta quinque millia,

33 boum septuaginta duo millia,

34 asinorum sexaginta millia et mille:

35 animæ hominum sexus feminei, quæ non cognoverant viros, triginta duo millia.

36 Dataque est media pars his qui in prælio fuerant, ovium trecenta triginta septem millia quingentæ:

37 e quibus in partem Domini supputatæ sunt oves sexcentæ septuaginta quinque:

38 et de bobus triginta sex millibus, boves septuaginta et duo:

39 de asinis triginta millibus quingentis, asini sexaginta unus:

40 de animabus hominum sedecim millibus, cesserunt in partem Domini triginta duæ animæ.

41 Tradiditque Moyses numerum primitiarum Domini Eleazaro sacerdoti, sicut fuerat ei imperatum,

42 ex media parte filiorum Israël, quam separaverat his qui in prælio fuerant.

43 De media vero parte, quæ contigerat reliquæ multitudini, id est, de ovibus trecentis triginta septem millibus quingentis,

44 et de bobus triginta sex millibus,

45 et de asinis triginta millibus quingentis,

46 et de hominibus sedecim millibus,

47 tulit Moyses quinquagesimum caput, et dedit Levitis, qui excubabant in tabernaculo Domini, sicut præceperat Dominus.

48 Cumque accessissent principes exercitus ad Moysen, et tribuni, centurionesque, dixerunt:

49 Nos servi tui recensuimus numerum pugnatorum, quos habuimus sub manu nostra: et ne unus quidem defuit.

50 Ob hanc causam offerimus in donariis Domini singuli quod in præda auri potuimus invenire, periscelides et armillas, annulos et dextralia, ac murænulas, ut depreceris pro nobis Dominum.

51 Susceperuntque Moyses et Eleazar sacerdos omne aurum in diversis speciebus,

52 pondo sedecim millia septingentos quinquaginta siclos, a tribunis et centurionibus.

53 Unusquisque enim quod in præda rapuerat, suum erat.

54 Et susceptum intulerunt in tabernaculum testimonii, in monimentum filiorum Israël coram Domino.
