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.
And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the company, go out to meet them, unto the outside of the camp,
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.
And Moses saith unto them, `Have ye kept alive every female?
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.
`And now, slay ye every male among the infants, yea, every woman known of man by the lying of a male ye have slain;
and all the infants among the women, who have not known the lying of a male, ye have kept alive for yourselves.
`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;
and every garment, and every skin vessel, and every work of goats' [hair], and every wooden vessel, ye yourselves cleanse.'
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:
only, the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,
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;
and ye have washed your garments on the seventh day, and have been clean, and afterwards ye come in unto the camp.'
And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
`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;
and thou hast halved the prey between those handling the battle who go out to the host and all the company;
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;
from their half ye do take, and thou hast given to Eleazar the priest -- the heave-offering of Jehovah.
`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.'
And Moses doth -- Eleazar the priest also -- as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.
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;
