|1||And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,|
|2||Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of them a rod according to the house of their fathers, of all their princes according to the house of their fathers twelve rods: write thou every man's name upon his rod.|
|3||And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi: for one rod shall be for the head of the house of their fathers.|
|4||And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the congregation before the testimony, where I will meet with you.|
And it shall
come to pass, that the man's rod, whom I shall choose, shall
blossom: and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children
of Israel, whereby they murmur against you.
|whom I shall choose|
|6||And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one, according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.|
|7||And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle of witness.|
|8||And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.|
And Moses brought out all the
rods from before the LORD unto all the children of Israel: and they
looked, and took every man his rod.
|10||And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not.||kept for a token|
|11||And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.|
|12||And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish.|
Whosoever cometh any thing near
unto the tabernacle of the LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?
