Numbers 17:3-13 CSB

3 Write Aaron's name on Levi's staff, because there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral house.
4 Then place them in the tent of meeting in front of the testimony where I meet with you.
5 The staff of the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid Myself of the Israelites' complaints that they have been making about you."
6 So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and each of their leaders gave him a staff, one for each of the leaders of their ancestral houses, 12 staffs [in all]. Aaron's staff was among them.
7 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the tent of the testimony.
8 The next day Moses entered the tent of the testimony and saw that Aaron's staff, representing the house of Levi, had sprouted, formed buds, blossomed, and produced almonds!
9 Moses then brought out all the staffs from the Lord's presence to all the Israelites. They saw [them], and each man took his own staff.
10 The Lord told Moses, "Put Aaron's rod back in front of the testimony to be kept as a signa for the rebels, so that you may put an end to their complaints before Me, or else they will die."
