א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

ב  אִישׁ עַל-דִּגְלוֹ בְאֹתֹת לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם, יַחֲנוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  מִנֶּגֶד, סָבִיב לְאֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד יַחֲנוּ.

2 'The children of Israel shall pitch by their fathers' houses; every man with his own standard, according to the ensigns; a good way off shall they pitch round about the tent of meeting.

ג  וְהַחֹנִים קֵדְמָה מִזְרָחָה, דֶּגֶל מַחֲנֵה יְהוּדָה לְצִבְאֹתָם; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי יְהוּדָה, נַחְשׁוֹן בֶּן-עַמִּינָדָב.

3 Now those that pitch on the east side toward the sunrising shall be they of the standard of the camp of Judah, according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Judah being Nahshon the son of Amminadab,

ד  וּצְבָאוֹ, וּפְקֻדֵיהֶם--אַרְבָּעָה וְשִׁבְעִים אֶלֶף, וְשֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת.

4 and his host, and those that were numbered of them, threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred;

ה  וְהַחֹנִים עָלָיו, מַטֵּה יִשָּׂשכָר; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי יִשָּׂשכָר, נְתַנְאֵל בֶּן-צוּעָר.

5 and those that pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Issachar; the prince of the children of Issachar being Nethanel the son of Zuar,

ו  וּצְבָאוֹ, וּפְקֻדָיו--אַרְבָּעָה וַחֲמִשִּׁים אֶלֶף, וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת.

6 and his host, even those that were numbered thereof, fifty and four thousand and four hundred;

ז  מַטֵּה, זְבוּלֻן; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי זְבוּלֻן, אֱלִיאָב בֶּן-חֵלֹן.

7 and the tribe of Zebulun; the prince of the children of Zebulun being Eliab the son of Helon,

ח  וּצְבָאוֹ, וּפְקֻדָיו--שִׁבְעָה וַחֲמִשִּׁים אֶלֶף, וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת.

8 and his host, and those that were numbered thereof, fifty and seven thousand and four hundred;

ט  כָּל-הַפְּקֻדִים לְמַחֲנֵה יְהוּדָה, מְאַת אֶלֶף וּשְׁמֹנִים אֶלֶף וְשֵׁשֶׁת-אֲלָפִים וְאַרְבַּע-מֵאוֹת--לְצִבְאֹתָם; רִאשֹׁנָה, יִסָּעוּ.  {ס}

9 all that were numbered of the camp of Judah being a hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred, according to their hosts; they shall set forth first. {S}

י  דֶּגֶל מַחֲנֵה רְאוּבֵן תֵּימָנָה, לְצִבְאֹתָם; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי רְאוּבֵן, אֱלִיצוּר בֶּן-שְׁדֵיאוּר.

10 On the south side shall be the standard of the camp of Reuben according to their hosts; the prince of the children of Reuben being Elizur the son of Shedeur,

11 and his host, and those that were numbered thereof, forty and six thousand and five hundred;

יב  וְהַחוֹנִם עָלָיו, מַטֵּה שִׁמְעוֹן; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי שִׁמְעוֹן, שְׁלֻמִיאֵל בֶּן-צוּרִישַׁדָּי.

12 and those that pitch next unto him shall be the tribe of Simeon; the prince of the children of Simeon being Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai,

טז  כָּל-הַפְּקֻדִים לְמַחֲנֵה רְאוּבֵן, מְאַת אֶלֶף וְאֶחָד וַחֲמִשִּׁים אֶלֶף וְאַרְבַּע-מֵאוֹת וַחֲמִשִּׁים--לְצִבְאֹתָם; וּשְׁנִיִּם, יִסָּעוּ.  {ס}

16 all that were numbered of the camp of Reuben being a hundred thousand and fifty and one thousand and four hundred and fifty, according to their hosts; and they shall set forth second. {S}

יז  וְנָסַע אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד מַחֲנֵה הַלְוִיִּם, בְּתוֹךְ הַמַּחֲנֹת; כַּאֲשֶׁר יַחֲנוּ כֵּן יִסָּעוּ, אִישׁ עַל-יָדוֹ לְדִגְלֵיהֶם.  {ס}

17 Then the tent of meeting, with the camp of the Levites, shall set forward in the midst of the camps; as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place, by their standards. {S}

יח  דֶּגֶל מַחֲנֵה אֶפְרַיִם לְצִבְאֹתָם, יָמָּה; וְנָשִׂיא לִבְנֵי אֶפְרַיִם, אֱלִישָׁמָע בֶּן-עַמִּיהוּד.

ל  וּצְבָאוֹ, וּפְקֻדֵיהֶם--שְׁלֹשָׁה וַחֲמִשִּׁים אֶלֶף, וְאַרְבַּע מֵאוֹת.

30 and his host, and those that were numbered of them, fifty and three thousand and four hundred;

לא  כָּל-הַפְּקֻדִים, לְמַחֲנֵה דָן--מְאַת אֶלֶף וְשִׁבְעָה וַחֲמִשִּׁים אֶלֶף, וְשֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת; לָאַחֲרֹנָה יִסְעוּ, לְדִגְלֵיהֶם.  {פ}

32 These are they that were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers' houses; all that were numbered of the camps according to their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

לג  וְהַלְוִיִּם--לֹא הָתְפָּקְדוּ, בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.

33 But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

לד  וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה, כֵּן-חָנוּ לְדִגְלֵיהֶם וְכֵן נָסָעוּ--אִישׁ לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָיו, עַל-בֵּית אֲבֹתָיו.  {פ}

34 Thus did the children of Israel: according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, each one according to its families, and according to its fathers' houses. {P}

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה בְּמִדְבַּר סִינַי, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד:  בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי בַּשָּׁנָה הַשֵּׁנִית, לְצֵאתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם--לֵאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying:

ב  שְׂאוּ, אֶת-רֹאשׁ כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם--בְּמִסְפַּר שֵׁמוֹת, כָּל-זָכָר לְגֻלְגְּלֹתָם.

2 'Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of names, every male, by their polls;

ג  מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה, כָּל-יֹצֵא צָבָא בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל--תִּפְקְדוּ אֹתָם לְצִבְאֹתָם, אַתָּה וְאַהֲרֹן.

3 from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: ye shall number them by their hosts, even thou and Aaron.

ד  וְאִתְּכֶם יִהְיוּ, אִישׁ אִישׁ לַמַּטֶּה--אִישׁ רֹאשׁ לְבֵית-אֲבֹתָיו, הוּא.

4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe, every one head of his fathers' house.

ה  וְאֵלֶּה שְׁמוֹת הָאֲנָשִׁים, אֲשֶׁר יַעַמְדוּ אִתְּכֶם:  לִרְאוּבֵן, אֱלִיצוּר בֶּן-שְׁדֵיאוּר.

5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of Reuben, Elizur the son of Shedeur.

ו  לְשִׁמְעוֹן, שְׁלֻמִיאֵל בֶּן-צוּרִישַׁדָּי.

טז  אֵלֶּה קריאי (קְרוּאֵי) הָעֵדָה, נְשִׂיאֵי מַטּוֹת אֲבוֹתָם:  רָאשֵׁי אַלְפֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, הֵם.

16 These were the elect of the congregation, the princes of the tribes of their fathers; they were the heads of the thousands of Israel.

יז  וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה, וְאַהֲרֹן, אֵת הָאֲנָשִׁים הָאֵלֶּה, אֲשֶׁר נִקְּבוּ בְּשֵׁמֹת.

17 And Moses and Aaron took these men that are pointed out by name.

יח  וְאֵת כָּל-הָעֵדָה הִקְהִילוּ, בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי, וַיִּתְיַלְדוּ עַל-מִשְׁפְּחֹתָם, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם:  בְּמִסְפַּר שֵׁמוֹת, מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה--לְגֻלְגְּלֹתָם.

18 And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by their fathers' houses, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.

יט  כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה; וַיִּפְקְדֵם, בְּמִדְבַּר סִינָי.  {ס}

19 As the LORD commanded Moses, so did he number them in the wilderness of Sinai. {S}

מד  אֵלֶּה הַפְּקֻדִים אֲשֶׁר פָּקַד מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן, וּנְשִׂיאֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר, אִישׁ:  אִישׁ-אֶחָד לְבֵית-אֲבֹתָיו, הָיוּ.

44 These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men; they were each one for his fathers' house.

מה  וַיִּהְיוּ כָּל-פְּקוּדֵי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם, מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה, כָּל-יֹצֵא צָבָא בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל.

45 And all those that were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers' houses, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel;

מו  וַיִּהְיוּ, כָּל-הַפְּקֻדִים--שֵׁשׁ-מֵאוֹת אֶלֶף, וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת אֲלָפִים; וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת, וַחֲמִשִּׁים.

46 even all those that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

מז  וְהַלְוִיִּם, לְמַטֵּה אֲבֹתָם--לֹא הָתְפָּקְדוּ, בְּתוֹכָם.  {פ}

47 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. {P}

מח  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

48 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

מט  אַךְ אֶת-מַטֵּה לֵוִי לֹא תִפְקֹד, וְאֶת-רֹאשָׁם לֹא תִשָּׂא, בְּתוֹךְ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

49 'Howbeit the tribe of Levi thou shalt not number, neither shalt thou take the sum of them among the children of Israel;

נ  וְאַתָּה הַפְקֵד אֶת-הַלְוִיִּם עַל-מִשְׁכַּן הָעֵדֻת וְעַל כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְעַל כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ--הֵמָּה יִשְׂאוּ אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְהֵם יְשָׁרְתֻהוּ; וְסָבִיב לַמִּשְׁכָּן, יַחֲנוּ.

50 but appoint thou the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all the furniture thereof, and over all that belongeth to it; they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the furniture thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.

נא  וּבִנְסֹעַ הַמִּשְׁכָּן, יוֹרִידוּ אֹתוֹ הַלְוִיִּם, וּבַחֲנֹת הַמִּשְׁכָּן, יָקִימוּ אֹתוֹ הַלְוִיִּם; וְהַזָּר הַקָּרֵב, יוּמָת.

51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up; and the common man that draweth nigh shall be put to death.

נב  וְחָנוּ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אִישׁ עַל-מַחֲנֵהוּ וְאִישׁ עַל-דִּגְלוֹ, לְצִבְאֹתָם.

52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man with his own camp, and every man with his own standard, according to their hosts.

נג  וְהַלְוִיִּם יַחֲנוּ סָבִיב, לְמִשְׁכַּן הָעֵדֻת, וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה קֶצֶף, עַל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְשָׁמְרוּ, הַלְוִיִּם, אֶת-מִשְׁמֶרֶת, מִשְׁכַּן הָעֵדוּת.

53 But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of the testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel; and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.'

נד  וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:  כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה--כֵּן עָשׂוּ.  {פ}

54 Thus did the children of Israel; according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they. {P}

א  וְאֵלֶּה תּוֹלְדֹת אַהֲרֹן, וּמֹשֶׁה:  בְּיוֹם, דִּבֶּר יְהוָה אֶת-מֹשֶׁה--בְּהַר סִינָי.

1 Now these are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD spoke with Moses in mount Sinai.

ב  וְאֵלֶּה שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי-אַהֲרֹן, הַבְּכֹר נָדָב, וַאֲבִיהוּא, אֶלְעָזָר וְאִיתָמָר.

2 And these are the names of the sons of Aaron: Nadab the first-born, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

ג  אֵלֶּה, שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן, הַכֹּהֲנִים, הַמְּשֻׁחִים--אֲשֶׁר-מִלֵּא יָדָם, לְכַהֵן.

3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests that were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.

ד  וַיָּמָת נָדָב וַאֲבִיהוּא לִפְנֵי יְהוָה בְּהַקְרִבָם אֵשׁ זָרָה לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, בְּמִדְבַּר סִינַי, וּבָנִים, לֹא-הָיוּ לָהֶם; וַיְכַהֵן אֶלְעָזָר וְאִיתָמָר, עַל-פְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֲבִיהֶם.  {פ}

4 And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children; and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the presence of Aaron their father. {P}

ה  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

5 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

ו  הַקְרֵב, אֶת-מַטֵּה לֵוִי, וְהַעֲמַדְתָּ אֹתוֹ, לִפְנֵי אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן; וְשֵׁרְתוּ, אֹתוֹ.

6 'Bring the tribe of Levi near, and set them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him.

ז  וְשָׁמְרוּ אֶת-מִשְׁמַרְתּוֹ, וְאֶת-מִשְׁמֶרֶת כָּל-הָעֵדָה, לִפְנֵי, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד--לַעֲבֹד, אֶת-עֲבֹדַת הַמִּשְׁכָּן.

7 And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the tent of meeting, to do the service of the tabernacle.

ח  וְשָׁמְרוּ, אֶת-כָּל-כְּלֵי אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְאֶת-מִשְׁמֶרֶת, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--לַעֲבֹד, אֶת-עֲבֹדַת הַמִּשְׁכָּן.

8 And they shall keep all the furniture of the tent of meeting, and the charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle.

ט  וְנָתַתָּה, אֶת-הַלְוִיִּם, לְאַהֲרֹן, וּלְבָנָיו:  נְתוּנִם נְתוּנִם הֵמָּה לוֹ, מֵאֵת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

9 And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons; they are wholly given unto him from the children of Israel.

י  וְאֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו תִּפְקֹד, וְשָׁמְרוּ אֶת-כְּהֻנָּתָם; וְהַזָּר הַקָּרֵב, יוּמָת.  {פ}

10 And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, that they may keep their priesthood; and the common man that draweth nigh shall be put to death.' {P}

יא  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

11 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

יב  וַאֲנִי הִנֵּה לָקַחְתִּי אֶת-הַלְוִיִּם, מִתּוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, תַּחַת כָּל-בְּכוֹר פֶּטֶר רֶחֶם, מִבְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְהָיוּ לִי, הַלְוִיִּם.

12 'And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of every first-born that openeth the womb among the children of Israel; and the Levites shall be Mine;

יג  כִּי לִי, כָּל-בְּכוֹר--בְּיוֹם הַכֹּתִי כָל-בְּכוֹר בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם הִקְדַּשְׁתִּי לִי כָל-בְּכוֹר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, מֵאָדָם עַד-בְּהֵמָה:  לִי יִהְיוּ, אֲנִי יְהוָה.  {פ}

13 for all the first-born are Mine: on the day that I smote all the first-born in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto Me all the first-born in Israel, both man and beast, Mine they shall be: I am the LORD.' {P}

יד  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, בְּמִדְבַּר סִינַי לֵאמֹר.

14 And the LORD spoke unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying:

טו  פְּקֹד אֶת-בְּנֵי לֵוִי, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם:  כָּל-זָכָר מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ וָמַעְלָה, תִּפְקְדֵם.

15 'Number the children of Levi by their fathers' houses, by their families; every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.'

טז  וַיִּפְקֹד אֹתָם מֹשֶׁה, עַל-פִּי יְהוָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר, צֻוָּה.

16 And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD, as he was commanded.

יז  וַיִּהְיוּ-אֵלֶּה בְנֵי-לֵוִי, בִּשְׁמֹתָם--גֵּרְשׁוֹן, וּקְהָת וּמְרָרִי.

17 And these were the sons of Levi by their names: Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari.

יח  וְאֵלֶּה שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי-גֵרְשׁוֹן, לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם--לִבְנִי, וְשִׁמְעִי.

18 And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families: Libni and Shimei.

יט  וּבְנֵי קְהָת, לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם--עַמְרָם וְיִצְהָר, חֶבְרוֹן וְעֻזִּיאֵל.

19 And the sons of Kohath by their families: Amram and Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel.

כ  וּבְנֵי מְרָרִי, לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם--מַחְלִי וּמוּשִׁי; אֵלֶּה הֵם מִשְׁפְּחֹת הַלֵּוִי, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם.

20 And the sons of Merari by their families: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their fathers' houses.

כא  לְגֵרְשׁוֹן--מִשְׁפַּחַת הַלִּבְנִי, וּמִשְׁפַּחַת הַשִּׁמְעִי; אֵלֶּה הֵם, מִשְׁפְּחֹת הַגֵּרְשֻׁנִּי.

21 Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimeites; these are the families of the Gershonites.

כב  פְּקֻדֵיהֶם בְּמִסְפַּר כָּל-זָכָר, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ וָמָעְלָה; פְּקֻדֵיהֶם, שִׁבְעַת אֲלָפִים וַחֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת.

22 Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred.

כג  מִשְׁפְּחֹת, הַגֵּרְשֻׁנִּי, אַחֲרֵי הַמִּשְׁכָּן יַחֲנוּ, יָמָּה.

23 The families of the Gershonites were to pitch behind the tabernacle westward;

כד  וּנְשִׂיא בֵית-אָב, לַגֵּרְשֻׁנִּי, אֶלְיָסָף, בֶּן-לָאֵל.

24 the prince of the fathers' house of the Gershonites being Eliasaph the son of Lael,

כה  וּמִשְׁמֶרֶת בְּנֵי-גֵרְשׁוֹן בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְהָאֹהֶל; מִכְסֵהוּ--וּמָסַךְ, פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד.

25 and the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tent of meeting the tabernacle, and the Tent, the covering thereof, and the screen for the door of the tent of meeting,

כו  וְקַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר, וְאֶת-מָסַךְ פֶּתַח הֶחָצֵר, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְעַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב; וְאֵת, מֵיתָרָיו, לְכֹל, עֲבֹדָתוֹ.  {ס}

26 and the hangings of the court, and the screen for the door of the court--which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar, round about--and the cords of it, even whatsoever pertaineth to the service thereof. {S}

כז  וְלִקְהָת, מִשְׁפַּחַת הַעַמְרָמִי וּמִשְׁפַּחַת הַיִּצְהָרִי, וּמִשְׁפַּחַת הַחֶבְרֹנִי, וּמִשְׁפַּחַת הָעָזִּיאֵלִי; אֵלֶּה הֵם, מִשְׁפְּחֹת הַקְּהָתִי.

27 And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family of the Izharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of the Uzzielites; these are the families of the Kohathites:

כח  בְּמִסְפַּר, כָּל-זָכָר, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ, וָמָעְלָה--שְׁמֹנַת אֲלָפִים וְשֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת, שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁמֶרֶת הַקֹּדֶשׁ.

28 according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, eight thousand and six hundred, keepers of the charge of the sanctuary.

כט  מִשְׁפְּחֹת בְּנֵי-קְהָת, יַחֲנוּ, עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן, תֵּימָנָה.

29 The families of the sons of Kohath were to pitch on the side of the tabernacle southward;

ל  וּנְשִׂיא בֵית-אָב, לְמִשְׁפְּחֹת הַקְּהָתִי, אֱלִיצָפָן, בֶּן-עֻזִּיאֵל.

30 the prince of the fathers' house of the families of the Kohathites being Elizaphan the son of Uzziel,

לא  וּמִשְׁמַרְתָּם, הָאָרֹן וְהַשֻּׁלְחָן וְהַמְּנֹרָה וְהַמִּזְבְּחֹת, וּכְלֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ, אֲשֶׁר יְשָׁרְתוּ בָּהֶם; וְהַמָּסָךְ--וְכֹל, עֲבֹדָתוֹ.

31 and their charge the ark, and the table, and the candlestick, and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith the priests minister, and the screen, and all that pertaineth to the service thereof;

לב  וּנְשִׂיא נְשִׂיאֵי הַלֵּוִי, אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן-אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, פְּקֻדַּת, שֹׁמְרֵי מִשְׁמֶרֶת הַקֹּדֶשׁ.

32 Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest being prince of the princes of the Levites, and having the oversight of them that keep the charge of the sanctuary.

לג  לִמְרָרִי--מִשְׁפַּחַת הַמַּחְלִי, וּמִשְׁפַּחַת הַמּוּשִׁי; אֵלֶּה הֵם, מִשְׁפְּחֹת מְרָרִי.

33 Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the Mushites; these are the families of Merari.

לד  וּפְקֻדֵיהֶם בְּמִסְפַּר כָּל-זָכָר, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ וָמָעְלָה--שֵׁשֶׁת אֲלָפִים, וּמָאתָיִם.

34 And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred;

לה  וּנְשִׂיא בֵית-אָב לְמִשְׁפְּחֹת מְרָרִי, צוּרִיאֵל בֶּן-אֲבִיחָיִל; עַל יֶרֶךְ הַמִּשְׁכָּן יַחֲנוּ, צָפֹנָה.

35 the prince of the fathers' house of the families of Merari being Zuriel the son of Abihail; they were to pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward;

לו  וּפְקֻדַּת מִשְׁמֶרֶת, בְּנֵי מְרָרִי--קַרְשֵׁי הַמִּשְׁכָּן, וּבְרִיחָיו וְעַמֻּדָיו וַאֲדָנָיו; וְכָל-כֵּלָיו--וְכֹל, עֲבֹדָתוֹ.

36 the appointed charge of the sons of Merari being the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the instruments thereof, and all that pertaineth to the service thereof;

37 and the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.

לח  וְהַחֹנִים לִפְנֵי הַמִּשְׁכָּן קֵדְמָה לִפְנֵי אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד מִזְרָחָה מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, שֹׁמְרִים מִשְׁמֶרֶת הַמִּקְדָּשׁ, לְמִשְׁמֶרֶת, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְהַזָּר הַקָּרֵב, יוּמָת.

38 And those that were to pitch before the tabernacle eastward, before the tent of meeting toward the sunrising, were Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary, even the charge for the children of Israel; and the common man that drew nigh was to be put to death.

לט  כָּל-פְּקוּדֵי הַלְוִיִּם אֲשֶׁר פָּקַד מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן, עַל-פִּי יְהוָה--לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם:  כָּל-זָכָר מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ וָמַעְלָה, שְׁנַיִם וְעֶשְׂרִים אָלֶף.  {ס}

39 All that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the LORD, by their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand. {S}

מ  וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, פְּקֹד כָּל-בְּכֹר זָכָר לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ, וָמָעְלָה; וְשָׂא, אֵת מִסְפַּר שְׁמֹתָם.

40 And the LORD said unto Moses: 'Number all the first-born males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names.

מא  וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-הַלְוִיִּם לִי אֲנִי יְהוָה, תַּחַת כָּל-בְּכֹר בִּבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְאֵת, בֶּהֱמַת הַלְוִיִּם, תַּחַת כָּל-בְּכוֹר, בְּבֶהֱמַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

41 And thou shalt take the Levites for Me, even the LORD, instead of all the first-born among the children of Israel; and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children of Israel.'

מב  וַיִּפְקֹד מֹשֶׁה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֹתוֹ, אֶת-כָּל-בְּכוֹר, בִּבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

42 And Moses numbered, as the LORD commanded him, all the first-born among the children of Israel.

מג  וַיְהִי כָל-בְּכוֹר זָכָר בְּמִסְפַּר שֵׁמֹת, מִבֶּן-חֹדֶשׁ וָמַעְלָה--לִפְקֻדֵיהֶם:  שְׁנַיִם וְעֶשְׂרִים אֶלֶף, שְׁלֹשָׁה וְשִׁבְעִים וּמָאתָיִם.  {פ}

43 And all the first-born males according to the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen. {P}

מד  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר.

44 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

מה  קַח אֶת-הַלְוִיִּם, תַּחַת כָּל-בְּכוֹר בִּבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאֶת-בֶּהֱמַת הַלְוִיִּם, תַּחַת בְּהֶמְתָּם; וְהָיוּ-לִי הַלְוִיִּם, אֲנִי יְהוָה.

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, even the LORD'S.

מו  וְאֵת פְּדוּיֵי הַשְּׁלֹשָׁה, וְהַשִּׁבְעִים וְהַמָּאתָיִם--הָעֹדְפִים, עַל-הַלְוִיִּם, מִבְּכוֹר, בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

46 And as for the redemption of the two hundred and three score and thirteen of the first-born of the children of Israel, that are over and above the number of the Levites,

מז  וְלָקַחְתָּ, חֲמֵשֶׁת חֲמֵשֶׁת שְׁקָלִים--לַגֻּלְגֹּלֶת:  בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ תִּקָּח, עֶשְׂרִים גֵּרָה הַשָּׁקֶל.

47 thou shalt take five shekels apiece by the poll; after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them--the shekel is twenty gerahs.

מח  וְנָתַתָּה הַכֶּסֶף, לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו--פְּדוּיֵי, הָעֹדְפִים בָּהֶם.

48 And thou shalt give the money wherewith they that remain over of them are redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons.'

מט  וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה, אֵת כֶּסֶף הַפִּדְיוֹם--מֵאֵת, הָעֹדְפִים, עַל, פְּדוּיֵי הַלְוִיִּם.

49 And Moses took the redemption-money from them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites;

נ  מֵאֵת, בְּכוֹר בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל--לָקַח אֶת-הַכָּסֶף:  חֲמִשָּׁה וְשִׁשִּׁים וּשְׁלֹשׁ מֵאוֹת, וָאֶלֶף--בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ.

50 from the first-born of the children of Israel took he the money: a thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

נא  וַיִּתֵּן מֹשֶׁה אֶת-כֶּסֶף הַפְּדֻיִם, לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו--עַל-פִּי יְהוָה:  כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.  {פ}

51 And Moses gave the redemption-money unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses. {P}

א  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר.

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

ב  נָשֹׂא, אֶת-רֹאשׁ בְּנֵי קְהָת, מִתּוֹךְ, בְּנֵי לֵוִי--לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָם, לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם.

2 'Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their families, by their fathers' houses,

ג  מִבֶּן שְׁלֹשִׁים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה, וְעַד בֶּן-חֲמִשִּׁים שָׁנָה--כָּל-בָּא, לַצָּבָא, לַעֲשׂוֹת מְלָאכָה, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד.

3 from thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter upon the service, to do work in the tent of meeting.

ד  זֹאת עֲבֹדַת בְּנֵי-קְהָת, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד--קֹדֶשׁ, הַקֳּדָשִׁים.

4 This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting, about the most holy things:

ה  וּבָא אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, בִּנְסֹעַ הַמַּחֲנֶה, וְהוֹרִדוּ, אֵת פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ; וְכִסּוּ-בָהּ--אֵת, אֲרֹן הָעֵדֻת.

5 when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall go in, and his sons, and they shall take down the veil of the screen, and cover the ark of the testimony with it;

ו  וְנָתְנוּ עָלָיו, כְּסוּי עוֹר תַּחַשׁ, וּפָרְשׂוּ בֶגֶד-כְּלִיל תְּכֵלֶת, מִלְמָעְלָה; וְשָׂמוּ, בַּדָּיו.

6 and shall put thereon a covering of sealskin, and shall spread over it a cloth all of blue, and shall set the staves thereof.

ז  וְעַל שֻׁלְחַן הַפָּנִים, יִפְרְשׂוּ בֶּגֶד תְּכֵלֶת, וְנָתְנוּ עָלָיו אֶת-הַקְּעָרֹת וְאֶת-הַכַּפֹּת וְאֶת-הַמְּנַקִּיֹּת, וְאֵת קְשׂוֹת הַנָּסֶךְ; וְלֶחֶם הַתָּמִיד, עָלָיו יִהְיֶה.

7 And upon the table of showbread they shall spread a cloth of blue, and put thereon the dishes, and the pans, and the bowls, and the jars wherewith to pour out; and the continual bread shall remain thereon.

ח  וּפָרְשׂוּ עֲלֵיהֶם, בֶּגֶד תּוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְכִסּוּ אֹתוֹ, בְּמִכְסֵה עוֹר תָּחַשׁ; וְשָׂמוּ, אֶת-בַּדָּיו.

8 And they shall spread upon them a cloth of scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of sealskin, and shall set the staves thereof.

ט  וְלָקְחוּ בֶּגֶד תְּכֵלֶת, וְכִסּוּ אֶת-מְנֹרַת הַמָּאוֹר וְאֶת-נֵרֹתֶיהָ, וְאֶת-מַלְקָחֶיהָ, וְאֶת-מַחְתֹּתֶיהָ; וְאֵת כָּל-כְּלֵי שַׁמְנָהּ, אֲשֶׁר יְשָׁרְתוּ-לָהּ בָּהֶם.

9 And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the candlestick of the light, and its lamps, and its tongs, and its snuffdishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it.

י  וְנָתְנוּ אֹתָהּ וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלֶיהָ, אֶל-מִכְסֵה עוֹר תָּחַשׁ; וְנָתְנוּ, עַל-הַמּוֹט.

10 And they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of sealskin, and shall put it upon a bar.

יא  וְעַל מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב, יִפְרְשׂוּ בֶּגֶד תְּכֵלֶת, וְכִסּוּ אֹתוֹ, בְּמִכְסֵה עוֹר תָּחַשׁ; וְשָׂמוּ, אֶת-בַּדָּיו.

11 And upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue, and cover it with a covering of sealskin, and shall set the staves thereof.

יב  וְלָקְחוּ אֶת-כָּל-כְּלֵי הַשָּׁרֵת אֲשֶׁר יְשָׁרְתוּ-בָם בַּקֹּדֶשׁ, וְנָתְנוּ אֶל-בֶּגֶד תְּכֵלֶת, וְכִסּוּ אוֹתָם, בְּמִכְסֵה עוֹר תָּחַשׁ; וְנָתְנוּ, עַל-הַמּוֹט.

12 And they shall take all the vessels of ministry, wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of blue, and cover them with a covering of sealskin, and shall put them on a bar.

יג  וְדִשְּׁנוּ, אֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וּפָרְשׂוּ עָלָיו, בֶּגֶד אַרְגָּמָן.

13 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon.

יד  וְנָתְנוּ עָלָיו אֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו אֲשֶׁר יְשָׁרְתוּ עָלָיו בָּהֶם, אֶת-הַמַּחְתֹּת אֶת-הַמִּזְלָגֹת וְאֶת-הַיָּעִים וְאֶת-הַמִּזְרָקֹת--כֹּל, כְּלֵי הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וּפָרְשׂוּ עָלָיו, כְּסוּי עוֹר תַּחַשׁ--וְשָׂמוּ בַדָּיו.

14 And they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith they minister about it, the fire-pans, the flesh-hooks, and the shovels, and the basins, all the vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a covering of sealskin, and set the staves thereof.

טו  וְכִלָּה אַהֲרֹן-וּבָנָיו לְכַסֹּת אֶת-הַקֹּדֶשׁ וְאֶת-כָּל-כְּלֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ, בִּנְסֹעַ הַמַּחֲנֶה, וְאַחֲרֵי-כֵן יָבֹאוּ בְנֵי-קְהָת לָשֵׂאת, וְלֹא-יִגְּעוּ אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ וָמֵתוּ; אֵלֶּה מַשָּׂא בְנֵי-קְהָת, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד.

15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the holy furniture, and all the holy vessels, as the camp is to set forward--after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear them; but they shall not touch the holy things, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting.

טז  וּפְקֻדַּת אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן-אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, שֶׁמֶן הַמָּאוֹר וּקְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים, וּמִנְחַת הַתָּמִיד, וְשֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה:  פְּקֻדַּת, כָּל-הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְכָל-אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ, בְּקֹדֶשׁ, וּבְכֵלָיו.  {פ}

16 And the charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the continual meal-offering, and the anointing oil: he shall have the charge of all the tabernacle, and of all that therein is, whether it be the sanctuary, or the furniture thereof.' {P}

יז  וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר.

17 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

יח  אַל-תַּכְרִיתוּ, אֶת-שֵׁבֶט מִשְׁפְּחֹת הַקְּהָתִי, מִתּוֹךְ, הַלְוִיִּם.

18 'Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites;

יט  וְזֹאת עֲשׂוּ לָהֶם, וְחָיוּ וְלֹא יָמֻתוּ, בְּגִשְׁתָּם, אֶת-קֹדֶשׁ הַקֳּדָשִׁים:  אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, יָבֹאוּ, וְשָׂמוּ אוֹתָם אִישׁ אִישׁ עַל-עֲבֹדָתוֹ, וְאֶל-מַשָּׂאוֹ.

19 but thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden;

כ  וְלֹא-יָבֹאוּ לִרְאוֹת כְּבַלַּע אֶת-הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וָמֵתוּ.  {פ}

20 but they shall not go in to see the holy things as they are being covered, lest they die.' {P}
