LEB 1 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, LEB 2 "Seek vengeance for the {Israelites} on the Midianites; afterward you will be gathered to your people." NIV 2 "Take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites. After that, you will be gathered to your people." LEB 3 Moses spoke to the people, saying, "Arm yourself from among your men for the battle, so that they will {go} against Midian to mete out the vengeance of Yahweh on Midian. NIV 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. LEB 4 A thousand from each tribe of every tribe of Israel you will send to battle." NIV 4 Send into battle a thousand men from each of the tribes of Israel." LEB 5 So theywere assigned from the thousands of Israel, a thousand from each tribe, twelve thousand equipped for battle. NIV 5 So twelve thousand men armed for battle, a thousand from each tribe, were supplied from the clans of Israel. LEB 6 Moses sent them, a thousand from each tribe, to the battle, and Phinehas son of Eleazar the priest to the battle with them, and the vessels of the sanctuary and the trumpets of the blast [were] in his hand. NIV 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. LEB 7 And they fought against Midian just as Yahweh commanded Moses, and they killed every male. NIV 7 They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man. LEB 8 They killed the kings of Midian in addition to the ones they had slain: Evi and Rekem and Zur and Hur and Reba, the five kings of Midian; they also killed Balaam son of Beor by the sword. NIV 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. LEB 9 The {Israelites} took captive the women of Midian and their children, and they plundered all their domestic animals and all their livestock and all their wealth. NIV 9 The Israelites captured the Midianite women and children and took all the Midianite herds, flocks and goods as plunder. LEB 10 They burned all their cities where they dwelled and all their camps with fire. NIV 10 They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps. LEB 11 They took all the plunder and all the war-booty with the humans and domestic animals. NIV 11 They took all the plunder and spoils, including the people and animals, LEB 12 They brought the captives, the war-booty, and the plunder to Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and to the community of the {Israelites}, to the camp to the desert-plateau of Moab, which [was] on [the] Jordan [across] Jericho. NIV 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. LEB 13 And Moses and Eleazar the priest and all the leaders of the community went out to meet them outside the camp. NIV 13 Moses, Eleazar the priest and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp. LEB 14 But Moses was angry toward the leaders of the troops, the commanders of the thousands and the commanders of the hundreds, who came from the battle of the war. NIV 14 Moses was angry with the officers of the army--the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds--who returned from the battle. LEB 15 And Moses said to them, "You have kept alive every female? NIV 15 "Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them. LEB 16 Behold, these women {caused} the {Israelites}, by the word of Balaam, to be in apostasy against Yahweh in the matter of Peor, so that the plague was among the community of Yahweh. NIV 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. LEB 17 Now kill every male among the little children, and kill every woman who has {had sexual intercourse with a man}. NIV 17 Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, LEB 18 But all the females who have not {had sexual intercourse with a man}, keep alive for yourselves. NIV 18 but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man. LEB 19 And you, camp outside the camp seven days; all who killed a person and all who touched the slain purify yourselves on the third day and on the seventh day, you and your captives. NIV 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. LEB 20 You will purify yourselves and every garment and every object of hide and all the work of goats' hair, and every object of wood." NIV 20 Purify every garment as well as everything made of leather, goat hair or wood." LEB 21 Then Eleazar the priest said to the men of the battle who came from the war, "This [is] the decree of the law that Yahweh commanded Moses. NIV 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: LEB 22 Only the gold and the silver, the bronze, the iron, the tin, and the lead-- NIV 22 Gold, silver, bronze, iron, tin, lead LEB 23 everything that will go through the fire--you will pass through the fire, and it will be clean, and only in waters of impurity will it be purified. Whatever does not go into the fire you will pass through the waters. NIV 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. LEB 24 And you will wash your garments on the seventh day and be clean, and afterward you will come into the camp." NIV 24 On the seventh day wash your clothes and you will be clean. Then you may come into the camp." LEB 25 Yahweh said to Moses, saying, NIV 25 The LORD said to Moses, LEB 26 "You and Eleazar the priest and the leaders of the {families} of the community, {take count} of the war-booty that was captured, both humans and the domestic animals; NIV 26 "You and Eleazar the priest and the family heads of the community are to count all the people and animals that were captured. LEB 27 divide the war-booty between those who engaged in the war, who went out to the battle, and all the community. NIV 27 Divide the spoils between the soldiers who took part in the battle and the rest of the community. LEB 28 Exact a tribute for Yahweh from the men of the war, those who went out to the battle, one from five hundred persons, and from the cattle and from the male donkeys and from the flock; NIV 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. LEB 29 take from their half and give it to Eleazar the priest [as] a contribution to Yahweh. NIV 29 Take this tribute from their half share and give it to Eleazar the priest as the LORD's part. LEB 30 From half of the {Israelites}, take one [share] drawn by lot from the fifty from the humans, from the cattle, from the male donkeys, from the flock, from all the domestic animals, and give them to the Levities who keep the responsibilities of the tabernacle of Yahweh." NIV 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." LEB 31 Moses and Eleazar the priest did just as Yahweh commanded Moses. NIV 31 So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses. LEB 32 Thus the war-booty that remained of the plunder that the people of the battle plundered was six hundred and seventy-five thousand flocks [of sheep], NIV 32 The plunder remaining from the spoils that the soldiers took was 675,000 sheep, LEB 33 seventy-two thousand cattle, NIV 33 72,000 cattle, LEB 34 sixty-one thousand male donkeys, NIV 34 61,000 donkeys LEB 35 and the life of humankind, from the women who did not {have sexual intercourse with a man}, all the persons were thirty-two thousand. NIV 35 and 32,000 women who had never slept with a man. LEB 36 The half of the share that was going out to the battle: the number of the flock [of sheep] was thee hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred; NIV 36 The half share of those who fought in the battle was: LEB 37 the tribute to Yahweh from the flock was six hundred and seventy-five; NIV 37 of which the tribute for the LORD was 675; LEB 38 and the cattle were thirty-six thousand; and the tribute to Yahweh [was] seventy-two. NIV 38 36,000 cattle, of which the tribute for the LORD was 72; LEB 39 Of the male donkeys there were thirty thousand five hundred, and the tribute to Yahweh was sixty-one; NIV 39 30,500 donkeys, of which the tribute for the LORD was 61; LEB 40 the humans were sixteen thousand, and the tribute to Yahweh [was] thirty-two persons. NIV 40 16,000 people, of which the tribute for the LORD was 32. LEB 41 And Moses gave away the tribute of the contribution of Yahweh to Eleazar the priest, just as Yahweh commanded Moses. NIV 41 Moses gave the tribute to Eleazar the priest as the LORD's part, as the LORD commanded Moses. LEB 42 From the half of the {Israelites}, which Moses divided from the men who were fighting, NIV 42 The half belonging to the Israelites, which Moses set apart from that of the fighting men-- LEB 43 the half that belonged to the community was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred from the flock, NIV 43 the community's half--was 337,500 sheep, LEB 44 and thirty-six thousand cattle, NIV 44 36,000 cattle, LEB 45 and thirty thousand five hundred male donkeys, NIV 45 30,500 donkeys LEB 46 and sixteen thousand humans. NIV 46 and 16,000 people. LEB 47 From the half that belonged to the {Israelites}, Moses took one share drawn by lot out of every fifty humans and domestic animals, and he gave them to the Levites, who keep the responsibility of the tabernacle of Yahweh, just as Yahweh commanded Moses. NIV 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. LEB 48 Then the leaders of the thousands of the army, the commanders of the thousands and the commanders of the hundreds, approached Moses, NIV 48 Then the officers who were over the units of the army--the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds--went to Moses LEB 49 and they said to Moses, "Your servants have {taken count} of the men of war who [were] {in our charge}, and no man is missing from us. NIV 49 and said to him, "Your servants have counted the soldiers under our command, and not one is missing. LEB 50 So we brought the offering of Yahweh, what each man found, objects of gold, bangles, bracelets, rings, earrings, and female ornaments, to make atonement for ourselves {before} Yahweh." NIV 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." LEB 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from them, all objects of work. NIV 51 Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted from them the gold--all the crafted articles. LEB 52 All the gold of the contribution that they raised up to Yahweh, from the commanders of the thousands and the commanders of the hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels. NIV 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. LEB 53 The men of battle plundered each for himself. NIV 53 Each soldier had taken plunder for himself. LEB 54 So Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold from the commanders of the thousands and hundreds, and they brought it to the tent of the assembly as a memorial for the {Israelites} before Yahweh. NIV 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.
