     26[1-4] After the trouble, Yahweh told Moses and Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, “Count all the people of Israel from twenty years old and up, by their family groups, all who are able to go to war in Israel. So Moses and Eleazar the priest told them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, “Count the people from twenty years old and up; as Yahweh told Moses and the people of Israel, who came out of the land of Egypt.

     [5-7] Reuben, the firstborn of Israel; the sons of Reuben were Hanoch, the family of the Hanochites; Pallu, the family of the Palluites; Hezron, the family of the Hezronites; Carmi, the family of the Carmites. These are the families of the Reubenites; and those who were counted of them were 43,730.

     [8-11] The son of Pallu was Eliab. The sons of Eliab were Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. These are that Dathan and Abiram, who were called of the people, who argued against Moses and Aaron in the company of Korah, when they argued against Yahweh, and the earth opened up and swallowed them with Korah. Those people died when the fire burned up 250 men, which was a sign. But, the sons of Korah didn’t die.

The sons of Gilead were Jeezer, the family of the Jeezerites; Helek, the family of the Helekites; Asriel, the family of the Asrielites; Shechem, the family of the Shechemites; Shemida, the family of the Shemidaites; and Hepher, the family of the Hepherites. Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, but only daughters: and the names of the daughters of Zelophehad were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. These are the families of Manasseh. Those who were counted of them were 52,700. The sons of Ephraim after their families were Shuthelah, the family of the Shuthelahites; Becher, the family of the Becherites; and Tahan, the family of the Tahanites. The son of Shuthelah was Eran, the leader of the family of the Eranites. These are the families of Ephraim. Those who were counted of them were 32,500. These are the sons of Joseph after their families.

     [38-41] The sons of Benjamin after their families were Bela, the family of the Belaites; Ashbel, the family of the Ashbelites; Ahiram, the family of the Ahiramites; Shephupham, the family of the Shuphamites; and Hupham, the family of the Huphamites.

Those who were counted of them were 45,600.

     [42-43] The the son of Dan was Shuham, the leader of the family of the Shuhamites. This is the family of Dan. All the families of the Shuhamites, who were counted of them, were 64,400.

     [44-47] The sons of Asher after their families were Imnah, the family of the Imnites; Ishvi, the family of the Ishvites; and Beriah, the family of the Berites.

These are the families of Naphtali by their families. Those who were counted of them were 45,400. So all who were counted of the people of Israel, were 601,730.

     [52-56] Yahweh told Moses, “The land will be divided to these for their own by the number of their names. Give more land to those who have more, and give less land to those who are fewer. Their land will be given to everyone by those who were counted of them. But the land will be divided in parts by the names of the families of their ancestors. Their inheritance will be divided between those who have more and those who have fewer in parts.

     [57-60] Those who were counted of the Levites after their families were Gershon, the family of the Gershonites; Kohath, the family of the Kohathites; and Merari, the family of the Merarites. The families of Levi were the family of the Libnites, the family of the Hebronites, the family of the Mahlites, the family of the Mushites, and the family of the Korahites. Kohath became the ancestor of Amram. The name of Amram’s wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, who was born to Levi in Egypt: and she gave Aaron, Moses, and Miriam, their sister, to Amram. Aaron had Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. Nadab and Abihu died, when they made an unacceptable offering to Yahweh.

     [62-65] Those who were counted of them were 23,000, every male from a month old and up. They weren’t counted among the people of Israel, because nothing was given to them of their own among the people of Israel. These are the ones who were counted by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who counted the people of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. But among these, none of them were counted by Moses and Aaron the priest, who counted the people of Israel in the countryside of Sinai because Yahweh had said of them, “They’ll die in the countryside.” And none of them were left, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

     27[1-5] Then the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph came to Moses. Their names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. They stood before Moses and Eleazar the priest, and before the leaders and all the people, at the door of the Meeting Place, and said, “Our father died in the countryside, and wasn’t among the company of those who gathered themselves together against Yahweh in those who were with Korah. He died in his own sin, but he had no sons. Why should the name of our father be taken away from among their family, because he had no son? Give us some land along with our uncles. So Moses asked Yahweh what to do.

    [6-11] Yahweh told Moses, “The daughters of Zelophehad speak right. Give them some land of their own along with their uncles; and the inheritance of their father will be given to them. Tell the people of Israel, ‘If someone dies, and has no son, then their inheritance will be given to their daughter. If they have no daughter, then give their inheritance to their brothers. If they have no brothers, then give their inheritance to their uncles. If their father has no brothers, then give their inheritance to their closest kin who’s next to them of their family, and they’ll own it.’”  This is a law and rule to the people of Israel, as Yahweh told Moses.

     [12-17] Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Go up into this mountain of Abarim, and see the land which I’ve given to the people of Israel. When you’ve seen it, you’ll be gathered to your people, as Aaron your brother was gathered; because you rebelled against My word in the countryside of Zin, when the people caused trouble, and didn’t respect Me at the waters in front of them.” (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the countryside of Zin.) So Moses told Yahweh, “Let Yahweh, the God of the spirits of all people, set someone over the people, who may go out before them, and come in before them, and who may lead them out, and bring them in; that the people of Yahweh not be as animals which have no keeper.”

     [18-23] Then Yahweh said to Moses, “Take Joshua, the son of Nun, a person who has the Spirit, and lay your hand on him; and bring him to Eleazar the priest, before all the people; and tell him what he is to do in their sight. Put some of your honor on him, so that all the people of Israel may do what he says. He’ll stand before Eleazar the priest, who will ask Yahweh their questions by the Judgment Stones. At his word they’ll go out and come in, both he, and all the people of Israel with him.” So Moses did what Yahweh told him; and he took Joshua, and brought him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the people. He laid hands on him, and told him what Yahweh said for him to do, as Yahweh spoke by Moses.

     28[1-6] Yahweh told Moses, “Tell the people of Israel, My offering, My food for My offerings made by fire, which have a good smell to Me, you’ll offer to Me in their right time. Tell them, ‘The offering made by fire which you’ll offer to Yahweh will be male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them, two each day, for a continual burnt offering. The first lamb you’ll offer in the morning, and the other lamb you’ll offer at evening; along with the 3 quart jar of fine flour for a meal offering, mixed with one fourth of a 5 quart jar of beaten oil. It’s a continual burnt offering, which was first done in Mount Sinai for a good smell, an offering made by fire to Yahweh.

     [7-10] The drink offering will be one-fourth of a 5 quart jar for the first lamb.  Pour out a drink offering of wine to Yahweh in the holy place. Offer the other lamb at evening like the meal offering of the morning, and the drink offering. Give it as an offering made by fire, a good smell to Yahweh. On the Seventh Day, offer two male lambs, a year old without anything wrong with them, and two 3 quart jars of fine flour for a meal offering, mixed with oil, and the drink offering. This is the burnt offering of every Seventh Day, besides the continual burnt offering, and the drink offering.

     [11-15] At the first of your months offer a burnt offering to Yahweh of two young bulls, one male goat, and seven male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and three 3 quart jars of fine flour for a meal offering, mixed with oil, for each bull; and two 3 quart jarsof fine flour for a meal offering, mixed with oil, for the first male goat; and a 3 quart jarof fine flour mixed with oil for a meal offering for every lamb; for a burnt offering of a good smell, an offering made by fire to Yahweh. Their drink offerings will be half a 5 quart jar of wine for a bull, and one-third of a 5 quart jar for the male goat, and one-fourth of a 5 quart jar for a lamb: this is the burnt offering of every month for each month of the year. Also give one male goat for a sin offering to Yahweh to be offered besides the continual burnt offering, and the drink offering.

     [16-24] On the fourteenth day of the first month, is Yahweh’s Passover. On the fifteenth day of this month will be a feast. For seven days bread made without yeast will be eaten. In the first day will be a sacred assembly. Do no ordinary work; but give an offering made by fire, a burnt offering to Yahweh. Give two young bulls, one male goat, and seven male lambs a year old, without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering, fine flour mixed with oil. Offer three 3 quart jars for a bull, and two 3 quart jars for the male goat; a 3 quart jar you’ll offer for each of the seven lambs; and one male goat for a sin offering, to cover your sins. Offer these besides the burnt offering of the morning, which is for a continual burnt offering. Offer daily, for seven days, the food of the offering made by fire, a good smell to Yahweh. It’ll be offered besides the continual burnt offering, and the drink offering.

     [25-31] On the seventh day have a sacred assembly and do no ordinary work. Also in the day of the first fruits, when you offer a new meal offering to Yahweh in your feast of weeks, have a sacred assembly and do no ordinary work. But offer a burnt offering for a good smell to Yahweh of two young bulls, one male goat, and seven male lambs a year old; and their meal offering, fine flour mixed with oil, three 3 quart jars for each bull, two 3 quart jars for the male goat, a 3 quart jar for each of the seven lambs; and one male goat, to cover your sins. Besides the continual burnt offering, and the meal offering, offer these animals without anything wrong with them, and their drink offerings.

     29[1-6] On the first day of the seventh month, have a sacred assembly and do no ordinary work. This is a day to celebrate with trumpet blowing. Offer a burnt offering for a good smell to Yahweh of one young bull, one male goat, and seven male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three 3 quart jars for the bull, two 3 quart jars for the male goat, and one 3 quart jar for each of the seven lambs; and one male goat for a sin offering, to cover your sins; besides the burnt offering of the new moon, and its meal offering, and the continual burnt offering and its meal offering, and their drink offerings, by their rule, for a good smell, an offering made by fire to Yahweh.

     [7-11] On the tenth day of this seventh month have a sacred assembly; and be quiet. Do no kind of work; but  offer a burnt offering to Yahweh for a good smell of one young bull, one male goat, and seven male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three 3 quart jars for the bull, two 3 quart jars for the first male goat, a 3 quart jar for each of the seven lambs and one young goat for a sin offering; besides the sin offering for sins to be covered, and the continual burnt offering, and its meal offering, and their drink offerings.

     [12-16] On the fifteenth day of the seventh month have a sacred assembly and do no ordinary work. Keep a feast to Yahweh for seven days and  offer a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, of a good smell to Yahweh of thirteen young bulls, two male goats, fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three 3 quart jars for each of the thirteen bulls, two 3 quart jars for each of the two male goats, and a 3 quart jar for each of the fourteen lambs; and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its drink offering.

     [17-19] On the second day offer twelve young bulls, two male goats, and fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, the male goats, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule; and one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, and its meal offering, and their drink offerings.

     [20-22] On the third day eleven bulls, two male goats, fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, the male goats, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule; and one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.

     [23-25] On the fourth day ten bulls, two male goats, fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, the male goats, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule; and one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its drink offering.

     [26-28] On the 5th day nine bulls, two male goats, fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, the male goats, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule; and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.

     [29-31] On the sixth day eight bulls, two male goats, fourteen male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; and their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bulls, the male goats, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule; and one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, its meal offering, and its drink offerings.

Offer a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, of a good smell to Yahweh of one bull, one male goat, seven male lambs a year old without anything wrong with them; their meal offering and their drink offerings for the bull, the male goat, and the lambs, by their number, after the rule: and one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering.

     [39-40] Offer these to Yahweh in your set feasts, besides your promises, and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings, and for your meal offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your peace offerings.’” So Moses told the people of Israel all that Yahweh had told him.

     30[1-5] Moses told the leaders of the families of the people of Israel, “This is what Yahweh has said. When a man makes a promise to Yahweh, or makes a promise of an oath to bind his soul with a bond, he won’t break his word; He’ll do whatever he says. Also when a woman makes a promise to Yahweh, and binds herself by a bond, being in her father’s house, in her youth, and her father hears her promise, and her bond with which she has bound her soul, and her father doesn’t say anything to her; then all her promises will stand, and every bond with which she has bound her soul will stand. But if her father hears it and won’t allow it, none of her promises, or her bonds with which she has bound her soul, will stand. Yahweh will forgive her, because her father wouldn’t allow her to do it.

     [6-12] If she’s married to a husband, while her promises are on her, or has said something rashly, with which she has bound her soul, and her husband hears it, and doesn’t say anything to her when he hears it; then her promises will stand, and her bonds with which she has bound her soul will stand. But if her husband doesn’t allow her to do it when he hears it, then he’ll undo her promise which is on her, and what she said rashly, with which she has bound her soul. Yahweh will forgive her. But everything a widow, or a divorced woman promises, with which she has bound her soul will stand against her.

     [10-13] If she promised in her husband’s house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath, and her husband heard it, and didn’t say anything to her, and didn’t undo it; then all her promises will stand, and every bond with which she bound her soul will stand. But if her husband didn’t allow it when he heard it, then whatever she said about her promises, or the bond of her soul, won’t stand because her husband has undone them. Yahweh will forgive her. Every promise, and every binding oath that she says, her husband may keep it or undo it.

     [14-16] But if her husband never says anything to her from day to day, then he accepts all her promises, or bonds, which are on her. He has agreed to them, because he hasn’t said anything to her when he heard it. But if he doesn’t accept them when he has heard them, then he’ll be guilty of her fault.” These are the laws, which Yahweh told Moses, between a man and his wife, between a father and his daughter, being in her youth, in her father’s house.
