24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which ythey offer as an heave offering unto the Lord, I have given to the Levites to inherit: therefore I have said unto them, zAmong the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance.

25 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, 26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the Lord, even aa tenth part of the tithe. 27 bAnd this your heave offering shall be reckoned unto you, as though it were the corn of the threshingfloor, and as the fulness of the winepress. 28 Thus ye also shall offer an heave offering unto the Lord of all your tithes, which ye receive of the children of Israel; and ye shall give thereof the Lord’s heave offering to Aaron the priest. 29 Out of all your gifts ye shall offer every heave offering of the Lord, of all the best thereof, even the hallowed part thereof out of it. 30 Therefore thou shalt say unto them, When ye have heaved the best thereof from it, cthen it shall be counted unto the Levites as the increase of the threshingfloor, and as the increase of the winepress. 31 And ye shall eat it in every place, ye and your households: for it is dyour reward for your service in the tabernacle of the congregation. 32 And ye shall ebear no sin by reason of it, when ye have heaved from it the best of it: neither shall ye fpollute the holy things of the children of Israel, lest ye die.

19 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, aand upon which never came yoke: And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may bring her bforth without the camp, and one shall slay her before his face: And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and csprinkle of her blood directly before the tabernacle of the congregation seven times: And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; dher skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn: And the priest shall take ecedar wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer. Then the priest fshall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the priest shall be unclean until the even. And ghe that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even. And a man that is clean shall gather up hthe ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in ia clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel jfor a water of separation: it is a purification for sin. 10 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever.

11 kHe that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean seven days. 12 He lshall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean. 13 Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, mdefileth the tabernacle of the Lord; and nthat soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; nhis uncleanness is yet upon him. 14 This is the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come into the tent, and all that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days. 15 And every oopen vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, is unclean. 16 And pwhosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days. 17 And for an unclean person they shall take of the ashes qof the burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water shall be put thereto in a vessel: 18 And a clean person shall take rhyssop, and dip it in the water, and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave: 19 And the clean person shall sprinkle upon the unclean son the third day, and on the seventh day: and ton the seventh day he shall purify himself, and uwash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean at even. 20 But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, xthat soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because he hath defiled the sanctuary of the Lord: the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon him; he is unclean. 21 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and he that toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean until even. 22 And ywhatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean; and the soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.

20 *Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, ainto the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and bMiriam died there, and was buried there. cAnd there was no water for the congregation: dand they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron. And the people echode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died fwhen our brethren died before the Lord! And gwhy have ye brought up the congregation of the Lord into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there? And wherefore have ye made us to come up out of Egypt, to bring us in unto this evil place? it is no place of seed, or of figs, or of vines, or of pomegranates; neither is there any water to drink. And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and hthey fell upon their faces: and ithe glory of the Lord appeared unto them. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, kTake the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and lthou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink. And Moses took the rod mfrom before the Lord, as he commanded him. 10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, nHear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock? 11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and othe water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. 12 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because pye believed me not, to qsanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them. 13 rThis is the water of ||Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the Lord, and he was sanctified in them.

14 sAnd Moses sent messengers from Kadesh unto tthe king of Edom, Thus saith uthy brother Israel, Thou knowest all the travail that hath befallen us: 15 vHow our fathers went down into Egypt, wand we have dwelt in Egypt a long time; xand the Egyptians vexed us, and our fathers: 16 And ywhen we cried unto the Lord, he heard our voice, and zsent an angel, and hath brought us forth out of Egypt: and, behold, we are in Kadesh, a city in the uttermost of thy border: 17 aLet us pass, I pray thee, through thy country: we will not pass through the fields, or through the vineyards, neither will we drink of the water of the wells: we will go by the king’s high way, we will not turn to the right hand nor to the left, until we have passed thy borders. 18 And Edom said unto him, Thou shalt not pass by me, lest I come out against thee with the sword. 19 And the children of Israel said unto him, We will go by bthe high way: and if I and my cattle drink of thy water, cthen I will pay for it: I will only, without doing any thing else, go through on my feet. 20 And he said, Thou shalt not go through. And Edom came out against him with much people, and with a strong hand. 21 Thus Edom drefused to give Israel passage through his border: wherefore Israel eturned away from him.

22 And the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, journeyed from fKadesh, and came unto gmount Hor. 23 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast of the land of Edom, saying, 24 Aaron shall be hgathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because iye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah. 25 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up unto mount Hor: 26 And strip Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son: and Aaron shall be gathered kunto his people, and shall die there. 27 And Moses did as the Lord commanded: and they went up into mount Hor in the sight of all the congregation. 28 lAnd Moses stripped Aaron of his garments, and put them upon Eleazar his son; and Aaron died there min the top of the mount: and Moses and Eleazar came down from the mount. 29 And when all the congregation saw that Aaron was dead, they mourned for Aaron nthirty days, even all the house of Israel.

21 And when aking Arad the Canaanite, which dwelt in the south, heard tell that Israel came bby the way of the spies; then he fought against Israel, and took some of them prisoners. cAnd Israel vowed a vow unto the Lord, and said, If thou wilt indeed deliver this people into my hand, then dI will utterly destroy their cities. And the Lord hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites; and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place ||
