But on the morrow [after the destruction of Korah, I3atlian,
and Abiram, with their company,] all the congregation of the chil-

Ye have killed the people of the Lord. And it came to pass when
the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron,
that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation : and
behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared.
And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congrega-
tion.

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Get you up from
among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a mo-
ment. And they fell upon their fiices.

And Moses said unto Aaron, ®akc a CCUSCr, aub put fiX'C

t!)crcin from off tijc altar, anb put on incense, anb go quickln
unto tl)c congregation, anb make an atonement for tljem:

for there is wrath gone out from the Lord ; the plague is begun.
And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of
the congregation ; and behold, the plague was begun among the

people : and he put on incense, anb mabe an atoncmcut for tl}C
people. Qlnb l)e stoob betujccn tlje beab anb tl)c lining; anb
tl)e plague toas staneb.

Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and
seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.
And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation ; and the plague was stayed.

And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying. This
is the ordinance of the law which the Lord hath commanded, say-
ing. Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red
heifer Avithout spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never
came yoke : and ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he
may bring her forth without the camp, anh onc sljall slan l)er

before l)is face ; anb (Eleanir tl)c priest slpill take of l}er bloob
roitl) l)iG finger, anb sprinkle of l)er bloob birectln before tl)e
tabernacle of tl)c congregation seuen times : and one shall

burn the heifer in his sight ; her skin, and her flesh, and her blood,
with her dung, shall he burn : and the priest shall take cedar-
wood, and hyssoj), and scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the
burning of the heifer.

Then the priest shall 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 he that burneth
her shall wash liis 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 the a-shes of the heifer, and lay them up without the
camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of
the children of Israel for a water of separation : it is a purification
for sin. 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 forever.

He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean
seven days. He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and
on the seventh day he shall be clean : but if he purify not him-
self the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean. Who-
soever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and puri-
fieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the Lord ; and that soul
shall be cut off from Israel : because the water of separation was
not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean ; his uncleanness is
yet upon him. 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. And every open vessel which hath no covering bound
upon it, is unclean. And whosoever 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.

And for an unclean person they shall take of the ashes of
the burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water shall be
put thereto in a vessel : and a clean person shall take hyssop, 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 : and the clean
person shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the third day, and on
the seventh day : and on the seventh day he shall purify himself,
and wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean
at even. But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify
himself, that 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.

And Balaam said unto Balak, Build me here seven altars,
and prepare me here seven oxen and seven rams. And Balak did

as Balaam had spoken ; axib JBaiak itub Balaam offcrcb on

Stand by thy burnt-otfei'ing, and I will go ; peradventure the
Lord will come to meet me : and whatsoever he sheweth me I will

tell thee. And he went to an high place

And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto
another place, from wdience thou mayest see them : thou shalt
see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all : and
curse me them from thence. And he brought him into the field of

Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, nub built schcu altars, anb of-
fered a bullock anb a ram on cucry altar •

And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Command the chil-
dren of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, and my bread for

And Moses told the children of Israel according to all that the
Lord commanded Moses.

And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the Lord,
Gideon said, Alas, Lord God ! for because I have seen an angel
of the Lord face to face. And the Lord said unto him, Peace be
unto thee ; fear not : thou shalt not die. Then Gideon built (lYl
alter tljcrc unto tl)C Corb, and called it Jehovah-shalom :' unto
this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abi-ezrites.

And it came to pass the same night, that the Lord said unto
him. Take thy father's young bullock, even the second bullock
of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy fether

And the children of Israel came near against the children of
Benjamin the second day. And Benjamin went forth against them
out of Gibeah the second day, and destroyed down to the ground
of the children of Israel again eighteen thousand men ; all these
drew the sword.

Then all the children of Israel, and all the people went up,
and came unto the house of God, and Avept, and sat there before

of Israel inquired of the Lord, (for the ark of the covenant of God
was there in those days, and Phineas, the son of Eleazar, the son
of Aaron stood before it in those days,) saying. Shall I yet again
go out to battle against the children of Benjamin my brother, or
shall I cease ? and the Lord said, Go up ; for to-morrow I will de-
liver them into thine hand.

[When the tribe of Benjamin was nearly destroyed,] And
the people came to the house of God, and abode there till even
before God, and lifted up their voices, and wept sore ; and said,
Lord God of Israel, why is this come to pass in Israel, that there
should be to-day one tribe lacking in Israel ? And it came to pass

on tho morrow, that the people rose earlu, axib bitilt tl)ere an

And the cart [bringing the ark of the Lord from the land of

stood there, where there was a great stone: aiib tl)Cr) clnue l\]C

coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them
on the great stone : and the men of Beth-shemesh offctcb buvtU-
offcringg anb sacrificcb sacrifices the same day unto the Lord.

And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry
unto the Lord our God for us, that he will save us out of the hand

of the Philistines.

QVnb Samuel took a sucking lamb, anb offcreb it for a
burnt-offering tDljoUn unto tl)e £orb : and Samuel cried unto
the Lord for Israel ; and the Lord heard him.

And his return was to Ramah ; for there was his house ; and

there he judged Israel ; axib tijerc l)e built an altar unto tlie
£orb.

And it came to pass, [when the ark was brought up from the
house of Obed-Edom,] when God helped the Levites that bare the
ark of the covenant of the Lord, that tljeu offcreb Seoeu bttUocks
anb seucu rams.

So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of
the tent that David had pitched for it: aXlb tljeg offercb burut-
sacrifices anb peace-offerings before God. And when David



had made an end of



offering



the burnt-offerings and the peace-



offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord

So the Lord sent pestilence upon Israel : and there fell of Is-
rael seventy thousand men. And God sent an angel unto Jerusa-
lem to destroy it : and as he was destroying, the Lord beheld, and
he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed.
It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the Lord
stood by the threshing-floor of Oman the Jebusite. And David
lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the Lord stand between
the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand,
stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Is-
rael, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces. And Da-
vid said unto God, Is it not I that commanded the people to be
numbered ? even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed ; but
as for these sheep, what have they done ? let thine hand, I pray
thee, Lord my God, be on me, and on my father's house ; but
not on thy people, that they should be plagued.

Then the angel of the Lord commanded Gad to say to David,

that David should go up, anb Set up an altar unto tl)c Corb in

the threshing-floor of Oman the Jebusite.

And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in
the name of the Lord. And Oman turned back, and saw the an-
gel : and his four sons with him hid themselves. Now Oman was

saw David, and went out of the threshing-tioor, and bowed himself
to David with his face to the ground. Then David said to Or-
nan, Grant me the place of this threshing-floor, that I may build
an altar therein unto the Lord : thou shalt grant it me for the full
price : that the plague may be stayed from the people. And Or-
nan said unto David, Take it to thee, and let my lord the king do
that which is good in his eyes : lo, I give thee the oxen also for
burnt-otterings, and the threshing instruments for wood, and the
wheat for the meat-offerinof ; I mve it all. And kinof David said
to Oman, Nay ; but I will verily buy it for the full price : for I will
not take that which is thine for the Lord, nor offer burnt-offerings
without cost. So David gave to Oman for the place six hundred
shekels of gold by weight.

And David bitilt tl)crc ttu altar nnto tljc £orb, mib offer-

David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my
son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and
the work is great ; for the palace is not for man, but for the
Lord God. Now I have prepared with all my might for the
house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and
the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass,
the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood ; onyx-
stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours,
and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.
Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God,
I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have
given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have
prepared for the holy house, even three thousand talents of gold, of
the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to
overlay the walls of the houses withal : the gold for things of gold,
and the silver for things of silver, and for all manner of work to
be made by the hands of artificers. And who then is willing to
consecrate his service this day unto the Lord ?
