Numbers 32

RSV 1 Now the sons of Reuben and the sons of Gad had a very great multitude of cattle; and they saw the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead, and behold, the place was a place for cattle. NIV 1 The Reubenites and Gadites, who had very large herds and flocks, saw that the lands of Jazer and Gilead were suitable for livestock. RSV 2 So the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben came and said to Moses and to Elea'zar the priest and to the leaders of the congregation, NIV 2 So they came to Moses and Eleazar the priest and to the leaders of the community, and said, RSV 3 "At'aroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elea'leh, Sebam, Nebo, and Be'on, NIV 3 "Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo and Beon-- RSV 4 the land which the LORD smote before the congregation of Israel, is a land for cattle; and your servants have cattle." NIV 4 the land the LORD subdued before the people of Israel--are suitable for livestock, and your servants have livestock. RSV 5 And they said, "If we have found favor in your sight, let this land be given to your servants for a possession; do not take us across the Jordan." NIV 5 If we have found favor in your eyes," they said, "let this land be given to your servants as our possession. Do not make us cross the Jordan." RSV 6 But Moses said to the sons of Gad and to the sons of Reuben, "Shall your brethren go to the war while you sit here? NIV 6 Moses said to the Gadites and Reubenites, "Shall your countrymen go to war while you sit here? RSV 7 Why will you discourage the heart of the people of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD has given them? NIV 7 Why do you discourage the Israelites from going over into the land the LORD has given them? RSV 8 Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Ka'desh-bar'nea to see the land. NIV 8 This is what your fathers did when I sent them from Kadesh Barnea to look over the land. RSV 9 For when they went up to the Valley of Eshcol, and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the people of Israel from going into the land which the LORD had given them. NIV 9 After they went up to the Valley of Eshcol and viewed the land, they discouraged the Israelites from entering the land the LORD had given them. RSV 10 And the LORD's anger was kindled on that day, and he swore, saying, NIV 10 The LORD's anger was aroused that day and he swore this oath: RSV 11 'Surely none of the men who came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, because they have not wholly followed me; NIV 11 'Because they have not followed me wholeheartedly, not one of the men twenty years old or more who came up out of Egypt will see the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-- RSV 12 none except Caleb the son of Jephun'neh the Ken'izzite and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the LORD.' NIV 12 not one except Caleb son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua son of Nun, for they followed the LORD wholeheartedly.' RSV 13 And the LORD's anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation that had done evil in the sight of the LORD was consumed. NIV 13 The LORD's anger burned against Israel and he made them wander in the desert forty years, until the whole generation of those who had done evil in his sight was gone. RSV 14 And behold, you have risen in your fathers' stead, a brood of sinful men, to increase still more the fierce anger of the LORD against Israel! NIV 14 "And here you are, a brood of sinners, standing in the place of your fathers and making the LORD even more angry with Israel. RSV 15 For if you turn away from following him, he will again abandon them in the wilderness; and you will destroy all this people." NIV 15 If you turn away from following him, he will again leave all this people in the desert, and you will be the cause of their destruction." RSV 16 Then they came near to him, and said, "We will build sheepfolds here for our flocks, and cities for our little ones, NIV 16 Then they came up to him and said, "We would like to build pens here for our livestock and cities for our women and children. RSV 17 but we will take up arms, ready to go before the people of Israel, until we have brought them to their place; and our little ones shall live in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land. NIV 17 But we are ready to arm ourselves and go ahead of the Israelites until we have brought them to their place. Meanwhile our women and children will live in fortified cities, for protection from the inhabitants of the land. RSV 18 We will not return to our homes until the people of Israel have inherited each his inheritance. NIV 18 We will not return to our homes until every Israelite has received his inheritance. RSV 19 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond; because our inheritance has come to us on this side of the Jordan to the east." NIV 19 We will not receive any inheritance with them on the other side of the Jordan, because our inheritance has come to us on the east side of the Jordan." RSV 20 So Moses said to them, "If you will do this, if you will take up arms to go before the LORD for the war, NIV 20 Then Moses said to them, "If you will do this--if you will arm yourselves before the LORD for battle, RSV 21 and every armed man of you will pass over the Jordan before the LORD, until he has driven out his enemies from before him NIV 21 and if all of you will go armed over the Jordan before the LORD until he has driven his enemies out before him-- RSV 22 and the land is subdued before the LORD; then after that you shall return and be free of obligation to the LORD and to Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the LORD. NIV 22 then when the land is subdued before the LORD, you may return and be free from your obligation to the LORD and to Israel. And this land will be your possession before the LORD. RSV 23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD; and be sure your sin will find you out. NIV 23 "But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the LORD; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out. RSV 24 Build cities for your little ones, and folds for your sheep; and do what you have promised." NIV 24 Build cities for your women and children, and pens for your flocks, but do what you have promised." RSV 25 And the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben said to Moses, "Your servants will do as my lord commands. NIV 25 The Gadites and Reubenites said to Moses, "We your servants will do as our lord commands. RSV 26 Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall remain there in the cities of Gilead; NIV 26 Our children and wives, our flocks and herds will remain here in the cities of Gilead. RSV 27 but your servants will pass over, every man who is armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my lord orders." NIV 27 But your servants, every man armed for battle, will cross over to fight before the LORD, just as our lord says." RSV 28 So Moses gave command concerning them to Elea'zar the priest, and to Joshua the son of Nun, and to the heads of the fathers' houses of the tribes of the people of Israel. NIV 28 Then Moses gave orders about them to Eleazar the priest and Joshua son of Nun and to the family heads of the Israelite tribes. RSV 29 And Moses said to them, "If the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben, every man who is armed to battle before the LORD, will pass with you over the Jordan and the land shall be subdued before you, then you shall give them the land of Gilead for a possession; NIV 29 He said to them, "If the Gadites and Reubenites, every man armed for battle, cross over the Jordan with you before the LORD, then when the land is subdued before you, give them the land of Gilead as their possession. RSV 30 but if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Canaan." NIV 30 But if they do not cross over with you armed, they must accept their possession with you in Canaan." RSV 31 And the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben answered, "As the LORD has said to your servants, so we will do. NIV 31 The Gadites and Reubenites answered, "Your servants will do what the LORD has said. RSV 32 We will pass over armed before the LORD into the land of Canaan, and the possession of our inheritance shall remain with us beyond the Jordan." NIV 32 We will cross over before the LORD into Canaan armed, but the property we inherit will be on this side of the Jordan." RSV 33 And Moses gave to them, to the sons of Gad and to the sons of Reuben and to the half-tribe of Manas'seh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan, the land and its cities with their territories, the cities of the land throughout the country. NIV 33 Then Moses gave to the Gadites, the Reubenites and the half-tribe of Manasseh son of Joseph the kingdom of Sihon king of the Amorites and the kingdom of Og king of Bashan--the whole land with its cities and the territory around them. RSV 34 And the sons of Gad built Dibon, At'aroth, Aro'er, NIV 34 The Gadites built up Dibon, Ataroth, Aroer, RSV 35 At'roth-sho'phan, Jazer, Jog'behah, NIV 35 Atroth Shophan, Jazer, Jogbehah, RSV 36 Beth-nim'rah and Beth-har'an, fortified cities, and folds for sheep. NIV 36 Beth Nimrah and Beth Haran as fortified cities, and built pens for their flocks. RSV 37 And the sons of Reuben built Heshbon, Elea'leh, Kiriatha'im, NIV 37 And the Reubenites rebuilt Heshbon, Elealeh and Kiriathaim, RSV 38 Nebo, and Ba'al-me'on (their names to be changed), and Sibmah; and they gave other names to the cities which they built. NIV 38 as well as Nebo and Baal Meon (these names were changed) and Sibmah. They gave names to the cities they rebuilt. RSV 39 And the sons of Machir the son of Manas'seh went to Gilead and took it, and dispossessed the Amorites who were in it. NIV 39 The descendants of Makir son of Manasseh went to Gilead, captured it and drove out the Amorites who were there. RSV 40 And Moses gave Gilead to Machir the son of Manas'seh, and he settled in it. NIV 40 So Moses gave Gilead to the Makirites, the descendants of Manasseh, and they settled there. RSV 41 And Ja'ir the son of Manas'seh went and took their villages, and called them Hav'voth-ja'ir. NIV 41 Jair, a descendant of Manasseh, captured their settlements and called them Havvoth Jair. RSV 42 And Nobah went and took Kenath and its villages, and called it Nobah, after his own name. NIV 42 And Nobah captured Kenath and its surrounding settlements and called it Nobah after himself.
