Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 `Speak unto the sons of Israel, and take from them each a rod, for a father's house, from all their princes, for the house of their fathers, twelve rods; the name of each thou dost write on his rod, 2 "Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff.
3 and Aaron's name thou dost write on the tribe of Levi; for one rod [is] for the head of their fathers' house: 3 On the staff of Levi write Aaron's name, for there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral tribe.
4 and thou hast placed them in the tent of meeting, before the testimony, where I meet with you. 4 Place them in the Tent of Meeting in front of the Testimony, where I meet with you.
5 `And it hath come to pass, the man's rod on whom I fix doth flourish, and I have caused to cease from off me the murmurings of the sons of Israel, which they are murmuring against you.' 5 The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites."
6 And Moses speaketh unto the sons of Israel, and all their princes give unto him one rod for a prince, one rod for a prince, for their fathers' house, twelve rods, and the rod of Aaron [is] in the midst of their rods; 6 So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and their leaders gave him twelve staffs, one for the leader of each of their ancestral tribes, and Aaron's staff was among them.
7 and Moses placeth the rods before Jehovah, in the tent of the testimony. 7 Moses placed the staffs before the LORD in the Tent of the Testimony.
8 And it cometh to pass, on the morrow, that Moses goeth in unto the tent of the testimony, and lo, the rod of Aaron hath flourished for the house of Levi, and is bringing out flourishing, and doth blossom blossoms, and doth produce almonds; 8 The next day Moses entered the Tent of the Testimony and saw that Aaron's staff, which represented the house of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds.
9 and Moses bringeth out all the rods from before Jehovah, unto all the sons of Israel, and they look, and take each his rod. 9 Then Moses brought out all the staffs from the LORD's presence to all the Israelites. They looked at them, and each man took his own staff.
10 And Jehovah saith unto Moses, `Put back the rod of Aaron, before the testimony, for a charge, for a sign to the sons of rebellion, and thou dost remove their murmurings from off me, and they do not die;' 10 The LORD said to Moses, "Put back Aaron's staff in front of the Testimony, to be kept as a sign to the rebellious. This will put an end to their grumbling against me, so that they will not die."
11 and Moses doth as Jehovah hath commanded him; so he hath done. 11 Moses did just as the LORD commanded him.
12 And the sons of Israel speak unto Moses, saying, `Lo, we have expired; we have perished; we have all of us perished; 12 The Israelites said to Moses, "We will die! We are lost, we are all lost!
13 any who is at all drawing near unto the tabernacle of Jehovah dieth; have we not been consumed -- to expire?' 13 Anyone who even comes near the tabernacle of the LORD will die. Are we all going to die?"
