a thousand for a tribe -- a thousand for a tribe, to all the tribes of Israel -- ye do send to the host.'
And there are given out of the thousands of Israel a thousand for a tribe, twelve thousand armed ones of the host;
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.
And they war against Midian, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses, and slay every male;
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.
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;
and all their cities, with their habitations, and all their towers, they have burnt with fire.
And they take all the spoil, and all the prey, among man and among beast;
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.
