saying, 45 Take the Levites instead of all the first-born among the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the Lord. - 46 And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen, of the first-born of the children of Israel, which are more than the Levites : 47 Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them: the shekel is twenty gerahs. 48 And thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is to be redcemed, unto Aaron and to his sons. 49 And Moses took the redemptionmoney of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites: 50 Of the first-born of the children of Israel took he the money ; a thousand three hundred and three score and five shekels, after the shckel of the sanctuary: 51 And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to the word of the "Lo RD, as the LoRD commanded Moses,

ND the LoRD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 2 Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, after their families, by the house of their fathers; 3 From thirty years old and upward, even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation. 4 || This shall be the service of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation, about the most holy things. 5 And when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall come, and his sons, and they shall take down the covering veil, and cower the ark of testimony with it: 6 And shall put thereon the covering of badgers, skins, and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in the staves thereof. 7 And upon the table of shew-bread they shall spread a cloth of blue, and put thereon the dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls, and covers to cover withal: and the continual bread shall be thereon: 8. And they shall spread upon them a | cloth of scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of badgers skins, and shall put in the staves thereof. 9 And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the candlestick of the light, and his lamps, and his tongs, and his snuff. dishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it: 10 And they shall put it, and all the vessels thereof, within a covering of bad
gers skins, and shall put it upon a bar. 11 And upon the golden altar they shall
spread a cloth of blue, and cover it with a covering of badgers skins, and shall put to the staves thereof: 12 And they shall take all the instru: ments of ministry, wherewith they minis. ter in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of blue, and cover them with a cowering of badgers skins, and shall put them on a bar. 13 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon: 14 And they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, where with they minister about it, even the censers, the flesh-hooks, and the shovels, and the basons, all the vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a covering of badgers skins, put to the staves of it. 15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward ; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, les:

ND the LoRD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead: 3 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them ; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell. 4 And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp.: as the Lord spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel. 5. T And the Lord spake unto Moses, Saying, 6 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit; to do a tresE. against the LoRD, and that person be guilty ; 7. Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with theo; thereof, and add unto it the fifth fart thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed. 8 But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the Lord, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atone
‘ment, whereby an atonement shall be
made for him. 9 And every offering of all the holy
things of the children of Israel, wo
they bring unto the priest, shall be his. 10 And every man's hallowed thin
shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth
the priest, it shall be his.

in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that
is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water: 18 And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the *:::: fering; and the priest shall have inhishand the bitter water that causeth the curse: 19 And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lien with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse: 20 But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man hath lien with thee beside thine husband : 21 Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the P. shall say unto the woman, The ord make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the Lord doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell; 22 And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot. And the woman shall say, Amen, amen. 23 And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water : 24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shallenterinto her, and become bitter. 25 Then the priest shall take the jealousy-offering out of the woman's hand, . shall wave the offering before the LoRD, and offer it upon the altar: 26 And the priest shall take an handTheir of the Mazarite.
