Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 `Execute the vengeance of the sons of Israel against the Midianites -- afterwards thou art gathered unto thy people.' 2 "Take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites. After that, you will be gathered to your people."
3 And Moses speaketh unto the people, saying, `Be ye armed some of you for the host, and they are against Midian, to put the vengeance of Jehovah on Midian; 3 So Moses said to the people, "Arm some of your men to go to war against the Midianites and to carry out the LORD's vengeance on them.
4 a thousand for a tribe -- a thousand for a tribe, to all the tribes of Israel -- ye do send to the host.' 4 Send into battle a thousand men from each of the tribes of Israel."
5 And there are given out of the thousands of Israel a thousand for a tribe, twelve thousand armed ones of the host; 5 So twelve thousand men armed for battle, a thousand from each tribe, were supplied from the clans of Israel.
6 and Moses sendeth them, a thousand for a tribe, to the host, them and Phinehas son of Eleazar the priest, to the host; and the holy vessels, and the trumpets of the shouting, in his hand. 6 Moses sent them into battle, a thousand from each tribe, along with Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, who took with him articles from the sanctuary and the trumpets for signaling.
7 And they war against Midian, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses, and slay every male; 7 They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man.
8 and the kings of Midian they have slain, besides their pierced ones, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian; and Balaam son of Beor, they have slain with the sword. 8 Among their victims were Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba--the five kings of Midian. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword.
9 And the sons of Israel take captive the women of Midian, and their infants; and all their cattle, and all their substance, and all their wealth they have plundered; 9 The Israelites captured the Midianite women and children and took all the Midianite herds, flocks and goods as plunder.
10 and all their cities, with their habitations, and all their towers, they have burnt with fire. 10 They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps.
11 And they take all the spoil, and all the prey, among man and among beast; 11 They took all the plunder and spoils, including the people and animals,
12 and they bring in, unto Moses, and unto Eleazar the priest, and unto the company of the sons of Israel, the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto the camp, unto the plains of Moab, which [are] by Jordan, [near] Jericho. 12 and brought the captives, spoils and plunder to Moses and Eleazar the priest and the Israelite assembly at their camp on the plains of Moab, by the Jordan across from Jericho.
13 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the company, go out to meet them, unto the outside of the camp, 13 Moses, Eleazar the priest and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp.
14 and Moses is wroth against the inspectors of the force, chiefs of the thousands, and chiefs of the hundreds, who are coming in from the host of the battle. 14 Moses was angry with the officers of the army--the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds--who returned from the battle.
15 And Moses saith unto them, `Have ye kept alive every female? 15 "Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them.
16 lo, they -- they have been to the sons of Israel, through the word of Balaam, to cause a trespass against Jehovah in the matter of Peor, and the plague is in the company of Jehovah. 16 "They were the ones who followed Balaam's advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the LORD in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the LORD's people.
17 `And now, slay ye every male among the infants, yea, every woman known of man by the lying of a male ye have slain; 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man,
18 and all the infants among the women, who have not known the lying of a male, ye have kept alive for yourselves. 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
19 `And ye, encamp ye at the outside of the camp seven days -- any who hath slain a person, and any who hath come against a pierced one, ye cleanse yourselves on the third day, and on the seventh day -- ye and your captives; 19 "All of you who have killed anyone or touched anyone who was killed must stay outside the camp seven days. On the third and seventh days you must purify yourselves and your captives.
20 and every garment, and every skin vessel, and every work of goats' [hair], and every wooden vessel, ye yourselves cleanse.' 20 Purify every garment as well as everything made of leather, goat hair or wood."
21 And Eleazar the priest saith unto the men of the host who go in to battle, `This [is] the statute of the law which Jehovah hath commanded Moses: 21 Then Eleazar the priest said to the soldiers who had gone into battle, "This is the requirement of the law that the LORD gave Moses:
22 only, the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead, 22 Gold, silver, bronze, iron, tin, lead
23 every thing which may go into fire, ye cause to pass over through fire, and it hath been clean; only, with the water of separation it is cleansed, and all that may not go into fire, ye cause to pass over through water; 23 and anything else that can withstand fire must be put through the fire, and then it will be clean. But it must also be purified with the water of cleansing. And whatever cannot withstand fire must be put through that water.
24 and ye have washed your garments on the seventh day, and have been clean, and afterwards ye come in unto the camp.' 24 On the seventh day wash your clothes and you will be clean. Then you may come into the camp."
25 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 25 The LORD said to Moses,
26 `Take up the sum of the prey of the captives, among man and among beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the heads of the fathers of the company; 26 "You and Eleazar the priest and the family heads of the community are to count all the people and animals that were captured.
27 and thou hast halved the prey between those handling the battle who go out to the host and all the company; 27 Divide the spoils between the soldiers who took part in the battle and the rest of the community.
28 and thou hast raised a tribute to Jehovah from the men of war, who go out to the host, one body out of five hundred, of man, and of the herd, and of the asses, and of the flock; 28 From the soldiers who fought in the battle, set apart as tribute for the LORD one out of every five hundred, whether persons, cattle, donkeys, sheep or goats.
29 from their half ye do take, and thou hast given to Eleazar the priest -- the heave-offering of Jehovah. 29 Take this tribute from their half share and give it to Eleazar the priest as the LORD's part.
30 `And from the sons of Israel's half thou dost take one possession out of fifty, of man, of the herd, of the asses, and of the flock, of all the cattle, and thou hast given them to the Levites keeping the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah.' 30 From the Israelites' half, select one out of every fifty, whether persons, cattle, donkeys, sheep, goats or other animals. Give them to the Levites, who are responsible for the care of the LORD's tabernacle."
31 And Moses doth -- Eleazar the priest also -- as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 31 So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.
32 And the prey, the residue of the spoil which the people of the host have spoiled, is of the flock six hundred thousand, and seventy thousand, and five thousand; 32 The plunder remaining from the spoils that the soldiers took was 675,000 sheep,
33 and of the herd two and seventy thousand; 33 72,000 cattle,
34 and of asses one and sixty thousand; 34 61,000 donkeys
35 and of human beings -- of the women who have not known the lying of a male -- all the persons [are] two and thirty thousand. 35 and 32,000 women who had never slept with a man.
36 And the half -- the portion of those who go out into the host -- the number of the flock is three hundred thousand, and thirty thousand, and seven thousand and five hundred. 36 The half share of those who fought in the battle was:
37 And the tribute to Jehovah of the sheep is six hundred five and seventy; 37 of which the tribute for the LORD was 675;
38 and the herd [is] six and thirty thousand, and their tribute to Jehovah [is] two and seventy; 38 36,000 cattle, of which the tribute for the LORD was 72;
39 and the asses [are] thirty thousand and five hundred, and their tribute to Jehovah [is] one and sixty; 39 30,500 donkeys, of which the tribute for the LORD was 61;
40 and the human beings [are] sixteen thousand, and their tribute to Jehovah [is] two and thirty persons. 40 16,000 people, of which the tribute for the LORD was 32.
41 And Moses giveth the tribute -- Jehovah's heave-offering -- to Eleazar the priest, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 41 Moses gave the tribute to Eleazar the priest as the LORD's part, as the LORD commanded Moses.
42 And of the sons of Israel's half, which Moses halved from the men who war -- 42 The half belonging to the Israelites, which Moses set apart from that of the fighting men--
43 and the company's half is, of the flock three hundred thousand, and thirty thousand, seven thousand and five hundred; 43 the community's half--was 337,500 sheep,
44 and of the herd six and thirty thousand; 44 36,000 cattle,
45 and of asses thirty thousand and five hundred; 45 30,500 donkeys
46 and of human beings sixteen thousand -- 46 and 16,000 people.
47 Moses taketh from the sons of Israel's half the one possession from the fifty, of man and of beast, and giveth them to the Levites keeping the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 47 From the Israelites' half, Moses selected one out of every fifty persons and animals, as the LORD commanded him, and gave them to the Levites, who were responsible for the care of the LORD's tabernacle.
48 And the inspectors whom the thousands of the host hath, (heads of the thousands and heads of the hundreds), draw near unto Moses, 48 Then the officers who were over the units of the army--the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds--went to Moses
49 and they say unto Moses, `Thy servants have taken up the sum of the men of war who [are] with us, and not a man of us hath been missed; 49 and said to him, "Your servants have counted the soldiers under our command, and not one is missing.
50 and we bring near Jehovah's offering, each that which he hath found, vessels of gold -- chain, and bracelet, seal-ring, [ear]-ring, and bead -- to make atonement for ourselves before Jehovah.' 50 So we have brought as an offering to the LORD the gold articles each of us acquired--armlets, bracelets, signet rings, earrings and necklaces--to make atonement for ourselves before the LORD."
51 And Moses receiveth -- Eleazar the priest also -- the gold from them, every made vessel, 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted from them the gold--all the crafted articles.
52 and all the gold of the heave-offering which they have lifted up to Jehovah is sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels, from heads of the thousands, and from heads of the hundreds; 52 All the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds that Moses and Eleazar presented as a gift to the LORD weighed 16,750 shekels.
53 (the men of the host have spoiled each for himself); 53 Each soldier had taken plunder for himself.
54 and Moses taketh -- Eleazar the priest also -- the gold from the heads of the thousands and of the hundreds, and they bring it in unto the tent of meeting -- a memorial for the sons of Israel before Jehovah. 54 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds and brought it into the Tent of Meeting as a memorial for the Israelites before the LORD.
