|Nu 17:1||Aaron,s rod, among all the rods of the tribes, only flourishes. |
¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of every one of them a rod1 according to the house of their fathers, of all their princes2 according to the house of their fathers twelve rods3: write thou every man's name upon his rod.
4And 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.
5And 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 I6 shall choose, shall blossom7: and I will8 make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel, whereby they murmur9 against you.
And Moses spake unto the children of Israel, and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece, for each prince one10, according to their fathers' houses, even twelve rods: and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.
11And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle of witness.
¶ And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of Aaron12 for the house of Levi was budded13, 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.
|Nu 17:10||It is left for a monument against the rebels. |
¶ And the LORD said unto Moses, Bring Aaron's14 rod again before the testimony, to be kept for a token15 against the rebels16; and thou17 shalt quite take away their murmurings from me, that they die not.
And Moses did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he.
And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying, Behold,18 we die19, we perish, we all perish.
Whosoever20 cometh any thing21 near unto the tabernacle of the LORD shall die: shall we be consumed22 with dying?
