1 At that time, in the hundred and eightieth year of the Yisraelites going down into Mitzrayim, there went forth from Mitzrayim valiant men, thirty thousand on foot, from the children of Yisrael, who were all of the tribe of Yoseph, of the children of Ephraim the son of Yoseph.
2 For they said the period was completed which YHUH had appointed to the children of Yisrael in the times of old, which he had spoken to Avraham.
3 And these men girded themselves, and they put each man his sword at his side, and every man his armor upon him, and they trusted in their strength, and they went out together from Mitzrayim with a mighty hand.
4 But they brought no provision for the road, only silver and gold, not even bread for that day did they bring in their hands, for they thought of getting their provision for pay from the Philistines, and if not they would take it by force.
5 And these men were very mighty and valiant men, one man could pursue a thousand and two could rout ten thousand, so they trusted in their strength and went together as they were.
6 And they directed their course toward the land of Gath, and they went down and found the shepherds of Gath feeding the cattle of the children of Gath.
7 And they said to the shepherds, Give us some of the sheep for pay that we may eat, for we are hungry, for we have eaten no bread this day.
8 And the shepherds said, Are they our sheep or cattle that we should give them to you even for pay? So the children of Ephraim approached to take them by force.
9 And the shepherds of Gath shouted over them that their cry was heard at a distance, so all the children of Gath went out to them.
10 And when the children of Gath saw the evil doings of the children of Ephraim, they returned and assembled the men of Gath, and they put on each man his armor, and came forth to the children of Ephraim for battle.
11 And they engaged with them in the Valley of Gath, and the battle was severe, and they smote from each other a great many on that day.
12 And on the second day the children of Gath sent to all the cities of the Philistines that they should come to their help, saying,
13 Come up to us and help us that we may smite the children of Ephraim who have come forth from Mitzrayim to take our cattle, and to fight against us without cause.
14 Now the beings of the children of Ephraim were exhausted with hunger and thirst, for they had eaten no bread for three days. And forty thousand men went forth from the cities of the Philistines to the assistance of the men of Gath.
15 And these men were engaged in battle with the children of Ephraim, and YHUH delivered the children of Ephraim into the hands of the Philistines.
16 And they smote all the children of Ephraim, all who had gone forth from Mitzrayim, none were remaining but ten men who had run away from the engagement.
17 For this evil was from YHUH against the children of Ephraim, for they transgressed the word of YHUH in going forth from Mitzrayim, before the period had arrived which YHUH in the days of old had appointed to Yisrael.
18 And of the Philistines also there fell a great many, about twenty thousand men, and their brothers carried them and buried them in their cities.
19 And the slain of the children of Ephraim remained forsaken in the valley of Gath for many days and years, and were not brought to burial, and the valley was filled with men's bones.
20 And the men who had escaped from the battle came to Mitzrayim, and told all the children of Yisrael all that had befallen them.
21 And their abba Ephraim mourned over them for many days, and his brothers came to console him.
22 And he came to his wife and she bare a son, and he called his name Beriyah, for she was unfortunate in his house.
1 And Moshe the son of Amram was still melech in the land of Cush in those days, and he prospered in his malchut, and he conducted the government of the children of Cush in mishpat, in tzedakah, and integrity.
2 And all the children of Cush loved Moshe all the days that he reigned over them, and all the inhabitants of the land of Cush were greatly afraid of him.
3 And in the fortieth year of the reign of Moshe over Cush, Moshe was sitting on the royal throne while Adoniah the queen was before him, and all the nobles were sitting around him.
4 And Adoniah the queen said before the melech and the princes, What is this thing that you, the children of Cush, have done for this long time?
5 Surely you know that for forty years that this man has reigned over Cush he has not approached me, nor has he served the ahlohim of the children of Cush.
6 Now therefore hear, O you children of Cush, and let this man no more reign over you, as he is not of our flesh.
7 Behold Menacrus my son is grown up, let him reign over you, for it is better for you to serve the son of your master, than to serve a stranger, slave of the melech of Mitzrayim.
8 And all the people and nobles of the children of Cush heard the words which Adoniah the queen had spoken in their ears.
9 And all the people were preparing until the evening, and in the morning they rose up early and made Menacrus, son of Kikianus, melech over them.
10 And all the children of Cush were afraid to stretch forth their hand against Moshe, for YHUH was with Moshe, and the children of Cush remembered the oath that they swore to Moshe, therefore they did no harm to him.
11 But the children of Cush gave many presents to Moshe, and sent him from them with great honor.
12 So Moshe went forth from the land of Cush, and went home and ceased to reign over Cush, and Moshe was sixty-six years old when he went out of the land of Cush, for the thing was from YHUH, for the period had arrived which he had appointed in the days of old, to bring forth Yisrael from the affliction of the children of Ham.
13 So Moshe went to Midiyan, for he was afraid to return to Mitzrayim on account of Pharaoh, and he went and sat at a well of mayim in Midiyan.
14 And the seven daughters of Reuel the Midyanite went out to feed their abba's flock.
15 And they came to the well and drew mayim to water their abba's flock.
16 So the shepherds of Midiyan came and drove them away, and Moshe rose up and helped them and watered the flock.
17 And they came home to their abba Reuel, and told him what Moshe did for them.
18 And they said, A Mitzrite man has delivered us from the hands of the shepherds, he drew up mayim for us and watered the flock.
19 And Reuel said to his daughters, And where is he? Why have you left the man?
20 And Reuel sent for him and fetched him and brought him home, and he ate bread with him.
21 And Moshe related to Reuel that he had fled from Mitzrayim and that he reigned forty years over Cush, and that they afterward had taken the government from him, and had sent him away in shalom with honor and with presents.
22 And when Reuel had heard the words of Moshe, Reuel said within himself, I will put this man into the prison house, whereby I shall conciliate the children of Cush, for he has fled from them.
23 And they took and put him into the prison house, and Moshe was in prison ten years, and while Moshe was in the prison house, Tzipporah the daughter of Reuel took pity over him, and supported him with bread and mayim all the time.
24 And all the children of Yisrael were yet in the land of Mitzrayim serving the Mitzrites in all manner of hard work, and the hand of Mitzrayim continued in severity over the children of Yisrael in those days.
25 At that time YHUH smote Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim, and he afflicted with the plague of leprosy from the sole of his foot to the keter of his head; owing to the cruel treatment of the children of Yisrael was this plague at that time from YHUH upon Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim.
26 For YHUH had hearkened to the prayer of his people the children of Yisrael, and their cry reached him on account of their hard work.
27 Still His anger did not turn from them, and the hand of Pharaoh was still stretched out against the children of Yisrael, and Pharaoh hardened his neck before YHUH, and he increased his yoke over the children of Yisrael, and embittered their lives with all manner of hard work.
28 And when YHUH had inflicted the plague upon Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim, he asked his wise men and sorcerers to cure him.
29 And his wise men and sorcerers said to him, That if the blood of little children were put into the wounds he would be healed.
30 And Pharaoh hearkened to them, and sent his ministers to Goshen to the children of Yisrael to take their little children.
31 And Pharaoh's ministers went and took the infants of the children of Yisrael from the bosoms of their mothers by force, and they brought them to Pharaoh daily, a child each day, and the physicians killed them and applied them to the plague; this did they all the days.
32 And the number of the children that Pharaoh slew was three hundred and seventy-five.
33 But YHUH hearkened not to the physicians of the melech of Mitzrayim, and the plague went on increasing mightily.
34 And Pharaoh was ten years afflicted with that plague; still the heart of Pharaoh was more hardened against the children of Yisrael.
35 And at the end of ten years YHUH continued to afflict Pharaoh with destructive plagues.
36 And YHUH smote him with a bad tumor and sickness at the stomach, and that plague turned to a severe boil.
37 At that time the two ministers of Pharaoh came from the land of Goshen where all the children of Yisrael were, and went to the house of Pharaoh and said to him, We have seen the children of Yisrael slacken in their work and negligent in their labor.
38 And when Pharaoh heard the words of his ministers, his anger was kindled against the children of Yisrael exceedingly, for he was greatly grieved at his bodily pain.
39 And he answered and said, Now that the children of Yisrael know that I am ill, they turn and scoff at us, now therefore harness my mirkava for me, and I will take myself to Goshen and will see the scoffing of the children of Yisrael with which they are deriding me; so his servants harnessed the mirkava for him.
40 And they took and made him ride upon a horse, for he was not able to ride of himself;
41 And he took with him ten horsemen and ten footmen, and went to the children of Yisrael to Goshen.
42 And when they had come to the border of Mitzrayim, the melech's horse passed into a narrow place, elevated in the hollow part of the vineyard, fenced on both sides, the low, plain country being on the other side.
43 And the horses ran rapidly in that place and pressed each other, and the other horses pressed the melech's horse.
44 And the melech's horse fell into the low plain while the melech was riding upon it, and when he fell the mirkava turned over the melech's face and the horse lay upon the melech, and the melech cried out, for his flesh was very sore.
45 And the flesh of the melech was torn from him, and his bones were broken and he could not ride, for this thing was from YHUH to him, for YHUH had heard the cries of his people the children of Yisrael and their affliction.
46 And his servants carried him upon their shoulders, a little at a time, and they brought him back to Mitzrayim, and the horsemen who were with him came also back to Mitzrayim.
47 And they placed him in his bed, and the melech knew that his end was come to die, so Aparanith the queen his wife came and cried before the melech, and the melech wept a great weeping with her.
48 And all his nobles and servants came on that day and saw the melech in that affliction, and wept a great weeping with him.
49 And the princes of the melech and all his counselors advised the melech to cause one to reign in his stead in the land, whomsoever he should choose from his sons.
50 And the melech had three sons and two daughters which Aparanith the queen his wife had borne to him, besides the melech's children of concubines.
51 And these were their names, the bachor Othri, the second Adikam, and the third Morion, and their sisters, the name of the zachena Bathiya and of the other Acuzi.
52 And Othri the bechor of the melech was an idiot, precipitate and hurried in his words.
53 But Adikam was a cunning and wise man and knowing in all the wisdom of Mitzrayim, but of unseemly aspect, thick in flesh, and very short in stature; his height was one cubit.
54 And when the melech saw Adikam his son intelligent and wise in all things, the melech resolved that he should be melech in his stead after his death.
55 And he took for him a wife Gedudah daughter of Avilot, and he was ten years old, and she bare to him four sons.
56 And he afterward went and took three wives and begat eight sons and three daughters.
57 And the disorder greatly prevailed over the melech, and his flesh stank like the flesh of a carcass cast upon the field in summer time, during the heat of the sun.
58 And when the melech saw that his sickness had greatly strengthened itself over him, he ordered his son Adikam to be brought to him, and they made him melech over the land in his place.
59 And at the end of three years, the melech died, in shame, disgrace, and disgust, and his servants carried him and buried him in the sepulcher of the melechim of Mitzrayim in Zoan-Mizraim.
60 But they embalmed him not as was usual with melechim, for his flesh was putrid, and they could not approach to embalm him on account of the stench, so they buried him in haste.
61 For this evil was from YHUH to him, for YHUH had requited him evil for the evil that in his days he had done to Yisrael.
62 And he died with terror and with shame, and his son Adikam reigned in his place.
1 Adikam was twenty years old when he reigned over Mitzrayim, he reigned four years.
2 In the two hundred and sixth year of Yisrael's going down to Mitzrayim did Adikam reign over Mitzrayim, but he continued not so long in his reign over Mitzrayim as his ahvot had continued their reigns.
3 For Melol his abba reigned ninety-four years in Mitzrayim, but he was ten years sick and died, for he had been wicked before YHUH.
4 And all the Mitzrites called the name of Adikam Pharaoh like the name of his ahvot, as was their custom to do in Mitzrayim.
5 And all the wise men of Pharaoh called the name of Adikam Ahuz, for short is called Ahuz in the Mitzrite language.
6 And Adikam was exceedingly ugly, and he was a cubit and a span and he had a great beard that reached to the soles of his feet.
7 And Pharaoh sat upon his abba's throne to reign over Mitzrayim, and he conducted the government of Mitzrayim in his wisdom.
8 And while he reigned he exceeded his abba and all the preceding melechim in wickedness, and he increased his yoke over the children of Yisrael.
9 And he went with his servants to Goshen to the children of Yisrael, and he strengthened the labor over them and he said to them, Complete your work, each day's task, and let not your hands slacken from our work from this day forward as you did in the days of my abba.
10 And he placed officers over them from among the children of Yisrael, and over these officers he placed taskmasters from among his servants.
11 And he placed over them a measure of bricks for them to do according to that number, day by day, and he turned back and went to Mitzrayim.
12 At that time the task-masters of Pharaoh ordered the officers of the children of Yisrael according to the command of Pharaoh, saying,
13 This says Pharaoh, Do your work each day, and finish your task, and observe the daily measure of bricks; diminish not anything.
14 And it shall come to pass that if you are deficient in your daily bricks, I will put your young children in their stead.
15 And the task-masters of Mitzrayim did so in those days as Pharaoh had ordered them.
16 And whenever any deficiency was found in the children of Yisrael's measure of their daily bricks, the task-masters of Pharaoh would go to the wives of the children of Yisrael and take infants of the children of Yisrael to the number of bricks deficient, they would take them by force from their ema's laps, and put them in the building instead of the bricks;
17 While their ahvot and mothers were crying over them and weeping when they heard the weeping voices of their infants in the wall of the building.
18 And the task-masters prevailed over Yisrael, that the Yisraelites should place their children in the building, so that a man placed his son in the wall and put mortar over him, while his eyes wept over him, and his tears ran down upon his child.
19 And the taskmasters of Mitzrayim did so to the babes of Yisrael for many days, and no one pitied or had rachamim over the babes of the children of Yisrael.
20 And the number of all the children killed in the building was two hundred and seventy, some whom they had built upon instead of the bricks that had been left deficient by their ahvot, and some whom they had drawn out dead from the building.
21 And the labor imposed upon the children of Yisrael in the days of Adikam exceeded in hardship that which they performed in the days of his abba.
22 And the children of Yisrael sighed every day on account of their heavy work, for they had said to themselves, Behold when Pharaoh shall die, his son will rise up and lighten our work!
23 But they increased the latter work more than the former, and the children of Yisrael sighed at this and their cry ascended to YHUH on account of their labor.
24 And YHUH heard the voice of the children of Yisrael and their cry, in those days, and YHUH remembered to them his covenant that he had made with Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov.
25 And YHUH saw the burden of the children of Yisrael, and their heavy work in those days, and he determined to deliver them.
26 And Moshe the son of Amram was still confined in the dungeon in those days, in the house of Reuel the Midyanite, and Tzipporah the daughter of Reuel did support him with food secretly day by day.
27 And Moshe was confined in the dungeon in the house of Reuel for ten years.
28 And at the end of ten years that was the first year of the reign of Pharaoh over Mitzrayim, in the place of his abba,
29 Tzipporah said to her abba Reuel, No person inquires or seeks after the Ivri man, whom you did bind in prison now ten years.
30 Now therefore, if it seems tov in your sight, let us send and see whether he is living or dead, but her abba knew not that she had supported him.
31 And Reuel her abba answered and said to her, Has ever such a thing happened that a man should be shut up in a prison without food for ten years, and that he should live?
32 And Tzipporah answered her abba, saying, Surely you have heard that the YHUH of the Ivrim is great and awesome, and does wonders for them at all times.
33 He it was who delivered Avraham from Ur of the Chaldeans, and Yitzchak from the sword of his abba, and Yaakov from the Malach of YHUH who wrestled with him at the ford of Yavvuk.
34 Also with this man has he done many things, he delivered him from the river in Mitzrayim and from the sword of Pharaoh, and from the children of Cush, so also can he deliver him from famine and make him live.
35 And the thing seemed tov in the sight of Reuel, and he did according to the word of his daughter, and sent to the dungeon to ascertain what became of Moshe.
36 And he saw, and behold the man Moshe was living in the dungeon, standing upon his feet, praising and praying to the YHUH of his ancestors.
37 And Reuel commanded Moshe to be brought out of the dungeon, so they shaved him and he changed his prison garments and ate bread.
38 And afterward Moshe went into the gan of Reuel that was behind the house, and he there prayed to YHUH his YHUH, who had done mighty wonders for him.
39 And it was that while he prayed he looked opposite to him, and behold a sapphire stick was placed in the ground, which was planted in the midst of the gan.
40 And he approached the stick and he looked, and behold the Name of YHUH Ahlohim of hosts was engraved thereon, written and developed upon the stick.
41 And he read it and stretched forth his hand and he plucked it like a forest tree from the thicket, and the stick was in his hand.
42 And this is the stick with which all the works of our YHUH were performed, after he had created the shamayim and earth, and all the host of them, seas, rivers and all their fishes.
43 And when YHUH had driven Ahdam from Gan Aden, he took the stick in his hand and went and tilled the ground from which he was taken.
44 And the stick came down to Noach and was given to Shem and his descendants, until it came into the hand of Avraham the Ivri.
45 And when Avraham had given all he had to his son Yitzchak, he also gave to him this stick.
46 And when Yaakov had fled to Padan-Aram, he took it into his hand, and when he returned to his abba he had not left it behind him.
47 Also when he went down to Mitzrayim he took it into his hand and gave it to Yoseph, one portion above his brothers, for Yaakov had taken it by force from his brother Esav.
48 And after the death of Yoseph, the nobles of Mitzrayim came into the house of Yoseph, and the stick came into the hand of Reuel the Midyanite, and when he went out of Mitzrayim, he took it in his hand and planted it in his gan.
49 And all the mighty men of the Kinites tried to pluck it when they endeavored to get Tzipporah his daughter, but they were unsuccessful.
50 So that stick remained planted in the gan of Reuel, until he came who had a right to it and took it.
51 And when Reuel saw the stick in the hand of Moshe, he wondered about it, and he gave him his daughter Tzipporah for a wife.
1 At that time died Baal Channan son of Achbor, melech of Edom, and was buried in his house in the land of Edom.
2 And after his death the children of Esav sent to the land of Edom, and took from there a man who was in Edom, whose name was Hadad, and they made him melech over them in the place of Baal Channan, their melech.
3 And Hadad reigned over the children of Edom forty-eight years.
4 And when he reigned he resolved to fight against the children of Moav, to bring them under the power of the children of Esav as they were before, but he was not able, because the children of Moav heard this thing, and they rose up and hurried to elect a melech over them from among their brothers.
5 And they afterward gathered together a great people, and sent to the children of Ammon their brothers for help to fight against Hadad melech of Edom.
6 And Hadad heard the thing that the children of Moav had done, and was greatly afraid of them, and refrained from fighting against them.
7 In those days Moshe, the son of Amram, in Midiyan, took Tzipporah, the daughter of Reuel the Midyanite, for a wife.
8 And Tzipporah walked in the halachot of the daughters of Yaakov, she was nothing short of the tzedakah of Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel and Leah.
9 And Tzipporah conceived and bare a son and he called his name Gershom, for he said, I was a stranger in a foreign land; but he circumcised not his foreskin, at the command of Reuel his abba-in-law.
10 And she conceived again and bare a son, but circumcised his foreskin, and called his name Eliezer, for Moshe said, Because the YHUH of my ahvot was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh.
11 And Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim greatly increased the labor of the children of Yisrael in those days, and continued to make his yoke heavier upon the children of Yisrael.
12 And he ordered a proclamation to be made in Mitzrayim, saying, Give no more straw to the people to make bricks with, let them go and gather themselves straw as they can find it.
13 Also the amount of bricks, which they shall make, let them give each day, and diminish nothing from them, for they are idle in their work.
14 And the children of Yisrael heard this, and they mourned and sighed, and they cried to YHUH on account of the bitterness of their beings.
15 And YHUH heard the cries of the children of Yisrael, and saw the oppression with which the Mitzrites oppressed them.
16 And YHUH was jealous for His people and His inheritance, and heard their voice, and He resolved to take them out of the affliction of Mitzrayim, to give them the land of Kanaan for a possession.
1 And in those days Moshe was feeding the flock of Reuel the Midyanite his abba-in-law, beyond the wilderness of Sin, and the stick, which he took from his abba-in-law, was in his hand.
2 And it came to pass one day that a kid of goats strayed from the flock, and Moshe pursued it and it came to the mountain of YHUH to Horev.
3 And when he came to Horev, YHUH appeared there to him in the bush, and he found the bush burning with fire, but the fire had no power over the bush to consume it.
4 And Moshe was greatly astonished at this sight, why the bush was not consumed, and he approached to see this mighty thing, and YHUH called to Moshe out of the fire and commanded him to go down to Mitzrayim, to Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim, to send the children of Yisrael from his service.
5 And YHUH said to Moshe, Go, return to Mitzrayim, for all those men who sought your life are dead, and you shall speak to Pharaoh to send forth the children of Yisrael from his land.
6 And YHUH showed him to do signs and wonders in Mitzrayim before the eyes of Pharaoh and the eyes of his subjects, in order that they might believe that YHUH had sent him.
7 And Moshe hearkened to all that YHUH had commanded him, and he returned to his abba-in-law and told him the thing, and Reuel said to him, Go in shalom.
8 And Moshe rose up to go to Mitzrayim, and he took his wife and sons with him, and he was at an inn in the road, and a malach of YHUH came down, and sought an occasion against him.
9 And he wished to kill him on account of his bechor son, because he had not circumcised him, and had transgressed the covenant which YHUH had made with Avraham.
10 For Moshe had hearkened to the words of his abba-in-law that he had spoken to him, not to circumcise his bechor son, therefore he circumcised him not.
11 And Tzipporah saw the malach of YHUH seeking an occasion against Moshe, and she knew that this thing was owing to his not having circumcised her son Gershom.
12 And Tzipporah hurried and took of the sharp rock stones that were there, and she circumcised her son, and delivered her husband and her son from the hand of the malach of YHUH.
13 And Aharon the son of Amram, the brother of Moshe, was in Mitzrayim walking at the riverside on that day.
14 And YHUH appeared to him in that place, and he said to him, Go now toward Moshe in the wilderness, and he went and met him in the mountain of YHUH, and he kissed him.
15 And Aharon lifted up his eyes, and saw Tzipporah the wife of Moshe and her children, and he said to Moshe, Who are these to you?
16 And Moshe said to him, They are my wife and sons, whom YHUH gave to me in Midiyan; and the thing grieved Aharon on account of the woman and her children.
17 And Aharon said to Moshe, Send away the woman and her children that they may go to her abba's house, and Moshe hearkened to the words of Aharon, and did so.
18 And Tzipporah returned with her children, and they went to the house of Reuel, and remained there until the time arrived when YHUH had visited his people, and brought them forth from Mitzrayim from the hand at Pharaoh.
19 And Moshe and Aharon came to Mitzrayim to the community of the children of Yisrael, and they spoke to them all the words of YHUH, and the people rejoiced an exceeding great rejoicing.
20 And Moshe and Aharon rose up early on the next day, and they went to the house of Pharaoh, and they took in their hands the rod of YHUH.
21 And when they came to the melech's gate, two young lions were confined there with iron instruments, and no person went out or came in from before them, unless those whom the melech ordered to come, when the conjurors came and withdrew the lions by their incantations, and this brought them to the melech.
22 And Moshe hurried and lifted up the stick upon the lions, and he loosed them, and Moshe and Aharon came into the melech's house.
23 The lions also came with them in joy, and they followed them and rejoiced as a dog rejoices over his master when he comes from the field.
24 And when Pharaoh saw this thing he was astonished at it, and he was greatly terrified at the report, for their appearance was like the appearance of the children of YHUH.
25 And Pharaoh said to Moshe, What do you require? And they answered him, saying, YHUH Ahlohim of the Ivrim has sent us to you, to say, Send forth My people that they may serve Me.
26 And when Pharaoh heard their words he was greatly terrified before them, and he said to them, Go today and come back to me tomorrow, and they did according to the word of the melech.
27 And when they had gone Pharaoh sent for Balaam the magician and to Yannes and Yambres his sons, and to all the magicians and conjurors and counselors which belonged to the melech, and they all came and sat before the melech.
28 And the melech told them all the words which Moshe and his brother Aharon had spoken to him, and the magicians said to the melech, But how came the men to you, on account of the lions which were confined at the gate?
29 And the melech said, Because they lifted up their rod against the lions and loosed them, and came to me, and the lions also rejoiced at them as a dog rejoices to meet his master.
30 And Balaam the son of Beor the magician answered the melech, saying, These are none else than magicians like ourselves.
31 Now therefore send for them, and let them come and we will try them, and the melech did so.
32 And in the morning Pharaoh sent for Moshe and Aharon to come before the melech, and they took the rod of YHUH, and came to the melech and spoke to him, saying,
33 This said YHUH Ahlohim of the Ivrim, Send My people that they may serve Me.
34 And the melech said to them, But who will believe you that you are the messengers of YHUH and that you come to me by His order?
35 Now therefore give a wonder or sign in this matter, and then the words that you speak will be believed.
36 And Aharon hurried and threw the rod out of his hand before Pharaoh and before his servants, and the rod turned into a serpent.
37 And the sorcerers saw this and they cast each man his rod upon the ground and they became serpents.
38 And the serpent of Aharon's rod lifted up its head and opened its mouth to swallow the rods of the magicians.
39 And Balaam the magician answered and said, This thing has been from the days of old, that a serpent should swallow its fellow, and that living things devour each other.
40 Now therefore restore it to a rod as it was at first, and we will also restore our rods as they were at first, and if your rod shall swallow our rods, then shall we know that the Ruach of YHUH is in you, and if not, you are only an artificer like us.
41 And Aharon hurried and stretched forth his hand and caught hold of the serpent's tail and it became a rod in his hand, and the sorcerers did the like with their rods, and they got hold, each man of the tail of his serpent, and they became rods as at first.
42 And when they were restored to rods, the rod of Aharon swallowed up their rods.
43 And when the melech saw this thing, he ordered the scroll of records that related to the melechim of Mitzrayim, to be brought, and they brought the scroll of records, the chronicles of the melechim of Mitzrayim, in which all the idols of Mitzrayim were inscribed, for they thought of finding in it the Name of YHUH, but they found it not.
44 And Pharaoh said to Moshe and Aharon, Behold I have not found the Name of your YHUH written in this scroll, and his Name I know not.
45 And the counselors and wise men answered the melech. We have heard that the YHUH of the Ivrim is a son of the wise, the son of ancient melechim.
46 And Pharaoh turned to Moshe and Aharon and said to them, I know not YHUH whom you have declared; neither will I send His people.
47 And they answered and said to the melech, YHUH Ahlohim of YHUH is His Name, and He proclaimed His Name over us from the days of our ancestors, and sent us, saying, Go to Pharaoh and say to him, Send My people that they may serve Me.
48 Now therefore send us, that we may take a journey for three days in the wilderness, and there may sacrifice to Him, for from the days of our going down to Mitzrayim, He has not taken from our hands either burnt offering, oblation or sacrifice, and if you will not send us, His anger will be kindled against you, and He will smite Mitzrayim either with the plague or with the sword.
49 And Pharaoh said to them, Tell me now His power and His might; and they said to him, He created the shamayim and the earth, the seas and all their fishes, He formed the light, created the darkness, caused rain upon the earth and watered it, and made the herbage and grass to sprout, He created man and beast and the animals of the forest, the birds of the air and the fish of the sea, and by His mouth they live and die.
50 Surely He created you in your ema's womb, and put into you the breath of life, and reared you and placed you upon the royal throne of Mitzrayim, and He will take your breath and being from you, and return you to the ground from where you were taken.
51 And the anger of the melech was kindled at their words, and he said to them, But who among all the YHUH of nations can do this? My river is my own, and I have made it for myself.
52 And he drove them from him, and he ordered the labor upon Yisrael to be more severe than it was yesterday and before.
53 And Moshe and Aharon went out from the melech's presence, and they saw the children of Yisrael in an evil condition for the taskmasters had made their labor exceedingly heavy.
54 And Moshe returned to YHUH and said, Why have you ill-treated Your people? For since I came to speak to Pharaoh what you did send me for, he has exceedingly ill-used the children of Yisrael.
55 And YHUH said to Moshe, Behold you will see that with an outstretched hand and heavy plagues, Pharaoh will send the children of Yisrael from his land.
56 And Moshe and Aharon dwelt among their brothers the children of Yisrael in Mitzrayim.
57 And as for the children of Yisrael the Mitzrites embittered their lives, with the heavy work that they imposed upon them.
1 And at the end of two years, YHUH again sent Moshe to Pharaoh to bring forth the children of Yisrael, and to send them out of the land of Mitzrayim.
2 And Moshe went and came to the house of Pharaoh, and he spoke to him the words of YHUH, who had sent him, but Pharaoh would not listen to the voice of YHUH, and YHUH roused His might in Mitzrayim upon Pharaoh and his subjects, and YHUH smote Pharaoh and his people with very great and sore plagues.
3 And YHUH sent by the hand of Aharon and turned all the mayim of Mitzrayim into blood, with all their streams and rivers.
4 And when a Mitzrite came to drink and draw mayim, he looked into his pitcher, and behold all the mayim was turned into blood; and when he came to drink from his cup the mayim in the cup became blood.
5 And when a woman kneaded her dough and cooked her victuals, their appearance was turned to that of blood.
6 And YHUH sent again and caused all their mayim to bring forth frogs, and all the frogs came into the houses of the Mitzrites.
7 And when the Mitzrites drank, their bellies were filled with frogs and they danced in their bellies as they dance when in the river.
8 And all their drinking mayim and cooking mayim turned to frogs, also when they lay in their beds their perspiration bred frogs.
9 Notwithstanding all this the anger of YHUH did not turn from them, and His hand was stretched out against all the Mitzrites to smite them with every heavy plague.
10 And he sent and smote their dust to lice, and the lice became in Mitzrayim to the height of two cubits upon the earth.
11 The lice were also very numerous, in the flesh of man and beast, in all the inhabitants of Mitzrayim, also upon the melech and queen YHUH sent the lice, and it grieved Mitzrayim exceedingly on account of the lice.
12 Notwithstanding this, the anger of YHUH did not turn away, and His hand was still stretched out over Mitzrayim.
13 And YHUH sent all kinds of beasts of the field into Mitzrayim, and they came and destroyed all Mitzrayim, man and beast, and trees, and all things that were in Mitzrayim.
14 And YHUH sent fiery serpents, scorpions, mice, weasels, and toads, together with others creeping in dust.
15 Flies, hornets, fleas, bugs and gnats, each swarm according to its kind.
16 And all reptiles and winged animals according to their kind came to Mitzrayim and grieved the Mitzrites exceedingly.
17 And the fleas and flies came into the eyes and ears of the Mitzrites.
18 And the hornet came upon them and drove them away, and they removed from it into their inner rooms, and it pursued them.
19 And when the Mitzrites hid themselves on account of the swarm of animals, they locked their doors after them, and YHUH ordered the Sulanuth that was in the sea, to come up and go into Mitzrayim.
20 And she had long arms, ten cubits in length of the cubit of a man.
21 And she went upon the roofs and uncovered the raftering and flooring and cut them, and stretched forth her arm into the house and removed the lock and the bolt, and opened the houses of Mitzrayim.
22 Afterward came the swarm of animals into the houses of Mitzrayim, and the swarm of animals destroyed the Mitzrites, and it grieved them exceedingly.
23 Notwithstanding this the anger of YHUH did not turn away from the Mitzrites, and His hand was yet stretched forth against them.
24 And YHUH sent the pestilence, and the pestilence pervaded Mitzrayim, in the horses and donkeys, and in the camels, in herds of oxen and sheep and in man.
25 And when the Mitzrites rose up early in the morning to take their cattle to pasture they found all their cattle dead.
26 And there remained of the cattle of the Mitzrites only one in ten, and of the cattle belonging to Yisrael in Goshen not one died.
27 And YHUH sent a burning inflammation in the flesh of the Mitzrites, which burst their skins, and it became a severe itch in all the Mitzrites from the soles of their feet to the crowns of their heads.
28 And many boils were in their flesh that their flesh wasted away until they became rotten and putrid.
29 Notwithstanding this the anger of YHUH did not turn away, and His hand was still stretched out over all Mitzrayim.
30 And YHUH sent a very heavy hail, which smote their vines and broke their fruit trees and dried them up that they fell upon them.
31 Also every green herb became dry and perished, for a mingling fire descended amidst the hail, therefore the hail and the fire consumed all things.
32 Also men and beasts that were found abroad perished of the flames of fire and of the hail, and all the young lions were exhausted.
33 And YHUH sent and brought numerous locusts into Mitzrayim, the Chasel, Salom, Chargol, and Chagole, locusts each of its kind, which devoured all that the hail had left remaining.
34 Then the Mitzrites rejoiced at the locusts, although they consumed the produce of the field, and they caught them in abundance and salted them for food.
35 And YHUH turned a mighty wind of the sea that took away all the locusts, even those that were salted, and thrust them into the Yam Suf; not one locust remained within the boundaries of Mitzrayim.
36 And YHUH sent darkness upon Mitzrayim, that the whole land of Mitzrayim and Pathros became dark for three days, so that a man could not see his hand when he lifted it to his mouth.
37 At that time died many of the people of Yisrael who had rebelled against YHUH and who would not listen to Moshe and Aharon, and believed not in them that YHUH had sent them.
38 And who had said, We will not go forth from Mitzrayim lest we perish with hunger in a desolate wilderness, and who would not listen to the voice of Moshe.
39 And YHUH plagued them in the three days of darkness, and the Yisraelites buried them in those days, without the Mitzrites knowing of them or rejoicing over them.
40 And the darkness was very great in Mitzrayim for three days, and any person who was standing when the darkness came, remained standing in his place, and he that was sitting remained sitting, and he that was lying continued lying in the same state, and he that was walking remained sitting upon the ground in the same spot; and this thing happened to all the Mitzrites, until the darkness had passed away.
41 And the days of darkness passed away, and YHUH sent Moshe and Aharon to the children of Yisrael, saying, Celebrate your feast and make your Pesach, for behold I come in the midst of the night among all the Mitzrites, and I will smite all their bechor, from the bechor of a man to the bechor of a beast, and when I see your Pesach, I will pass over you.
42 And the children of Yisrael did according to all that YHUH had commanded Moshe and Aharon, this did they in that night.
43 And it came to pass in the middle of the night, that YHUH went forth in the midst of Mitzrayim, and smote all the bechor of the Mitzrites, from the bechor of man to the bechor of beast.
44 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Mitzrites, and there was a great cry throughout Mitzrayim in that night, for there was not a house in which there was not a corpse.
45 Also the likenesses of the bechor of Mitzrayim, which were carved in the walls at their houses, were destroyed and fell to the ground.
46 Even the bones of their bechor who had died before this and whom they had buried in their houses, were raked up by the dogs of Mitzrayim on that night and dragged before the Mitzrites and cast before them.
47 And all the Mitzrites saw this evil that had suddenly come upon them, and all the Mitzrites cried out with a loud voice.
48 And all the families of Mitzrayim wept upon that night, each man for his son and each man for his daughter, being the bechor, and the tumult of Mitzrayim was heard at a distance on that night.
49 And Bathiya the daughter of Pharaoh went forth with the melech on that night to seek Moshe and Aharon in their houses, and they found them in their houses, eating and drinking and rejoicing with all Yisrael.
50 And Bathiya said to Moshe, Is this the reward for the tov that I have done to you, who have reared you and stretched you out, and you have brought this evil upon me and my abba's house?
51 And Moshe said to her, Surely ten plagues did YHUH bring upon Mitzrayim; did any evil accrue to you from any of them? Did one of them affect you? And she said, No.
52 And Moshe said to her, Although you are the bechor to your ema, you shall not die, and no evil shall reach you in the midst of Mitzrayim.
53 And she said, What advantage is it to me, when I see the melech, my brother, and all his household and subjects in this evil, whose bechor perish with all the first born of Mitzrayim?
54 And Moshe said to her, Surely your brother and his household, and subjects, the families of Mitzrayim, would not listen to the words of YHUH, therefore did this evil come upon them.
55 And Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim approached Moshe and Aharon, and some of the children of Yisrael who were with them in that place, and he prayed to them, saying,
56 Rise up and take your brothers, all the children of Yisrael who are in the land, with their sheep and oxen, and all belonging to them, they shall leave nothing remaining, only pray for me to YHUH your YHUH.
57 And Moshe said to Pharaoh, Behold though you are your ema's bechor, yet fear not, for you will not die, for YHUH has commanded that you shall live, in order to show you His great might and strong stretched out arm.
58 And Pharaoh ordered the children of Yisrael to be sent away, and all the Mitzrites strengthened themselves to send them, for they said, We are all perishing.
59 And all the Mitzrites sent the Yisraelites forth, with great riches, sheep and oxen and precious things, according to the oath of YHUH between Him and our abba Avraham.
60 And the children of Yisrael delayed going forth at night, and when the Mitzrites came to them to bring them out, they said to them, Are we thieves, that we should go forth at night?
61 And the children of Yisrael asked of the Mitzrites, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and garments, and the children of Yisrael stripped the Mitzrites.
62 And Moshe hurried and rose up and went to the river of Mitzrayim, and brought up from there the coffin of Yoseph and took it with him.
63 The children of Yisrael also brought up, each man his abba's coffin with him, and each man the coffins of his tribe.
1 And the children of Yisrael journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides the little ones and their wives.
2 Also a mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks and herds, even much cattle.
3 And the sojourning of the children of Yisrael, who dwelt in the land of Mitzrayim in hard labor, was two hundred and ten years.
4 And at the end of two hundred and ten years, YHUH brought forth the children of Yisrael from Mitzrayim with a strong hand.
5 And the children of Yisrael traveled from Mitzrayim and from Goshen and from Rameses, and encamped in Succoth on the fifteenth day of the first month.
6 And the Mitzrites buried all their bechor whom YHUH had smitten, and all the Mitzrites buried their slain for three days.
7 And the children of Yisrael traveled from Succoth and encamped in Ethom, at the end of the wilderness.
8 And on the third day after the Mitzrites had buried their bechor, many men rose up from Mitzrayim and went after Yisrael to make them return to Mitzrayim, for they repented that they had sent the Yisraelites away from their servitude.
9 And one man said to his neighbor, Surely Moshe and Aharon spoke to Pharaoh, saying, We will go a three days' journey in the wilderness and sacrifice to YHUH our YHUH.
10 Now therefore let us rise up early in the morning and cause them to return, and it shall be that if they return with us to Mitzrayim to their masters, then shall we know that there is faith in them, but if they will not return, then will we fight with them, and make them come back with great power and a strong hand.
11 And all the nobles of Pharaoh rose up in the morning, and with them about seven hundred thousand men, and they went forth from Mitzrayim on that day, and came to the place where the children of Yisrael were.
12 And all the Mitzrites saw and behold Moshe and Aharon and all the children of Yisrael were sitting before Pi-hahiroth, eating and drinking and celebrating the feast of YHUH.
13 And all the Mitzrites said to the children of Yisrael, Surely you said, We will go a journey for three days in the wilderness and sacrifice to our YHUH and return.
14 Now therefore this day makes five days since you went, why do you not return to your masters?
15 And Moshe and Aharon answered them, saying, Because YHUH our YHUH has testified in us, saying, You shall no more return to Mitzrayim, but we will take ourselves to a land flowing with milk and honey, as YHUH our YHUH had sworn to our ancestors to give to us.
16 And when the nobles of Mitzrayim saw that the children of Yisrael did not listen to them, to return to Mitzrayim, they girded themselves to fight with Yisrael.
17 And YHUH strengthened the hearts of the children of Yisrael over the Mitzrites, that they gave them a severe beating, and the battle was sore upon the Mitzrites, and all the Mitzrites fled from before the children of Yisrael, for many of them perished by the hand of Yisrael.
18 And the nobles of Pharaoh went to Mitzrayim and told Pharaoh, saying, The children of Yisrael have fled, and will no more return to Mitzrayim, and in this manner did Moshe and Aharon speak to us.
19 And Pharaoh heard this thing, and his heart and the hearts of all his subjects were turned against Yisrael, and they repented that they had sent Yisrael; and all the Mitzrites advised Pharaoh to pursue the children of Yisrael to make them come back to their burdens.
20 And they said each man to his brother, What is this that we have done, that we have sent Yisrael from our servitude?
21 And YHUH strengthened the hearts of all the Mitzrites to pursue the Yisraelites, for YHUH desired to overthrow the Mitzrites in the Yam Suf.
22 And Pharaoh rose up and harnessed his mirkava, and he ordered all the Mitzrites to assemble, not one man was left excepting the little ones and the women.
23 And all the Mitzrites went forth with Pharaoh to pursue the children of Yisrael, and the camp of Mitzrayim was an exceedingly large and heavy camp, about ten hundred thousand men.
24 And the whole of this camp went and pursued the children of Yisrael to bring them back to Mitzrayim, and they reached them encamping by the Yam Suf.
25 And the children of Yisrael lifted up their eyes, and beheld all the Mitzrites pursuing them, and the children of Yisrael were greatly terrified at them, and the children of Yisrael cried to YHUH.
26 And on account of the Mitzrites, the children of Yisrael divided themselves into four divisions, and they were divided in their opinions, for they were afraid of the Mitzrites, and Moshe spoke to each of them.
27 The first division was of the children of Reuven, Shimeon, and Yissacher, and they resolved to cast themselves into the sea, for they were exceedingly afraid of the Mitzrites.
28 And Moshe said to them, Fear not, stand still and see the salvation of YHUH which He will effect this day for you.
29 The second division was of the children of Zevulun, Binyamin and Naphtali, and they resolved to go back to Mitzrayim with the Mitzrites.
30 And Moshe said to them, Fear not, for as you have seen the Mitzrites this day, so shall you see them no more le-olam-va-ed.
31 The third division was of the children of Yahudah and Yoseph, and they resolved to go to meet the Mitzrites to fight with them.
32 And Moshe said to them, Stand in your places, for YHUH will fight for you, and you shall remain silent.
33 And the fourth division was of the children of Levi, Gad, and Asher, and they resolved to go into the midst of the Mitzrites to confound them, and Moshe said to them, Remain in your stations and fear not, only call to YHUH that He may save you out of their hands.
34 After this Moshe rose up from amidst the people, and he prayed to YHUH and said,
35 O YHUH Ahlohim of the whole earth, save now your people whom you did bring forth from Mitzrayim, and let not the Mitzrites boast that power and might are theirs.
36 So YHUH said to Moshe, Why do you cry to me? Speak to the children of Yisrael that they shall proceed, and do you stretch out your rod upon the sea and divide it, and the children of Yisrael shall pass through it. 37 And Moshe did so, and he lifted up his rod upon the sea and divided it.
38 And the mayim of the sea was divided into twelve parts, and the children of Yisrael passed through on foot, with shoes, as a man would pass through a prepared road.
39 And YHUH manifested to the children of Yisrael His wonders in Mitzrayim and in the sea by the hand of Moshe and Aharon.
40 And when the children of Yisrael had entered the sea, the Mitzrites came after them, and the mayim of the sea resumed upon them, and they all sank in the mayim, and not one man was left except Pharaoh, who gave thanks to YHUH and believed in him, therefore YHUH did not cause him to perish at that time with the Mitzrites.
41 And YHUH ordered a malach to take him from among the Mitzrites, who cast him upon the land of Ninevah and he reigned over it for a long time.
42 And on that day YHUH saved Yisrael from the hand of Mitzrayim, and all the children of Yisrael saw that the Mitzrites had perished, and they beheld the great hand of YHUH, in what He had performed in Mitzrayim and in the sea.
43 Then sang Moshe and the children of Yisrael this song to YHUH, on the day when YHUH caused the Mitzrites to fall before them.
44 And all Yisrael sang in concert, saying, I will sing to YHUH for He is greatly exalted, the horse and his rider has He cast into the sea; behold it is written in the scroll of the Torah of YHUH.
45 After this the children of Yisrael proceeded on their journey, and encamped in Marah, and YHUH gave to the children of Yisrael chukim and mishpatim in that place in Marah, and YHUH commanded the children of Yisrael to walk in all his halachot and to serve Him.
46 And they journeyed from Marah and came to Eylim, and in Eylim were twelve springs of mayim and seventy date trees, and the children encamped there by the mayim.
47 And they journeyed from Eylim and came to the wilderness of Sin, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departure from Mitzrayim.
48 At that time YHUH gave the manna to the children of Yisrael to eat, and YHUH caused food to rain from the shamayim for the children of Yisrael day by day.
49 And the children of Yisrael ate the manna for forty years, all the days that they were in the wilderness, until they came to the land of Kanaan to possess it.
50 And they proceeded from the wilderness of Sin and encamped in Alush.
51 And they proceeded from Alush and encamped in Rephidim.
52 And when the children of Yisrael were in Rephidim, Amalek the son of Eliphaz, the son of Esav, the brother of Zepho, came to fight with Yisrael.
53 And he brought with him eight hundred and one thousand men, magicians and conjurers, and he prepared for battle with Yisrael in Rephidim.
54 And they carried on a great and severe battle against Yisrael, and YHUH delivered Amalek and his people into the hands of Moshe and the children of Yisrael, and into the hand of Yahoshua, the son of Nun, the Ephrathite, the servant of Moshe.
55 And the children of Yisrael smote Amalek and his people at the edge of the sword, but the battle was very sore upon the children of Yisrael.
56 And YHUH said to Moshe, Write this thing as a memorial for you in a scroll, and place it in the hand of Yahoshua, the son of Nun, your servant, and you shall command the children of Yisrael, saying, When you shall come to the land of Kanaan, you shall utterly efface the remembrance of Amalek from under the shamayim. 57 And Moshe did so, and he took the scroll and wrote upon it these words, saying,
58 Remember what Amalek has done to you in the road when you went forth from Mitzrayim.
59 Who met you in the road and smote your rear, even those that were feeble behind you when you were faint and weary.
60 Therefore it shall be when YHUH your YHUH shall have given you rest from all your enemies round about in the land which YHUH your YHUH gives you for an inheritance, to possess it, that you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the shamayim, you shall not forget it.
61 And the melech who shall have pity on Amalek, or upon his memory or upon his zera, behold I will require it of him, and I will cut him off from among his people.
62 And Moshe wrote all these things in a scroll, and he enjoined the children of Yisrael respecting all these matters.
1 And the children of Yisrael proceeded from Rephidim and they encamped in the wilderness of Sinai, in the third month from their going forth from Mitzrayim.
2 At that time came Reuel the Midyanite, the abba-in-law of Moshe, with Tzipporah his daughter and her two sons, for he had heard of the wonders of YHUH that He had done to Yisrael, that He had delivered them from the hand of Mitzrayim.
3 And Reuel came to Moshe to the wilderness where he was encamped, where was the mountain of YHUH.
4 And Moshe went forth to meet his abba-in-law with great honor, and all Yisrael was with him.
5 And Reuel and his children remained among the Yisraelites for many days, and Reuel knew YHUH from that day forward.
6 And in the third month from the children of Yisrael's departure from Mitzrayim, on the sixth day of it, YHUH gave to Yisrael the ten mitzvot on Mount Sinai.
7 And all Yisrael heard all these mitzvot, and all Yisrael rejoiced exceedingly in YHUH on that day.
8 And the glory of YHUH rested upon Mount Sinai, and He called to Moshe, and Moshe came in the midst of a cloud and ascended the mountain.
9 And Moshe was upon the mount forty days and forty nights; he ate no bread and drank no mayim, and YHUH instructed him in the chukim and mishpatim in order to teach the children of Yisrael.
10 And YHUH wrote the ten mitzvot which He had commanded the children of Yisrael upon two tablets of stone, which He gave to Moshe to command the children of Yisrael.
11 And at the end of forty days and forty nights, when YHUH had finished speaking to Moshe on Mount Sinai, then YHUH gave to Moshe the tablets of stone, written with the finger of YHUH.
12 And when the children of Yisrael saw that Moshe tarried to come down from the mount, they gathered round Aharon, and said, As for this man Moshe we know not what has become of him.
13 Now therefore rise up, make to us an ahlohim who shall go before us, so that you shall not die.
14 And Aharon was greatly afraid of the people, and he ordered them to bring him gold and he made it into a molten calf for the people.
15 And YHUH said to Moshe, before he had come down from the mount, Get down, for your people whom you did bring forth from Mitzrayim have corrupted themselves. 16 They have made to themselves a molten calf, and have bowed down to it, now therefore leave me, that I may consume them from off the earth, for they are a stiff-necked people.
17 And Moshe sought the countenance of YHUH, and he prayed to YHUH for the people on account of the calf that they had made, and he afterward descended from the mount and in his hands were the two tablets of stone, which YHUH had given him to command the Yisraelites.
18 And when Moshe approached the camp and saw the calf that the people had made, the anger of Moshe was kindled and he broke the tablets under the mount.
19 And Moshe came to the camp and he took the calf and burned it with fire, and ground it till it became fine dust, and strewed it upon the mayim and gave it to the Yisraelites to drink.
20 And there died of the people by the swords of each other about three thousand men who had made the calf.
21 And on the next day Moshe said to the people, I will go up to YHUH, perhaps I may make atonement for your sins which you have sinned to YHUH.
22 And Moshe again went up to YHUH, and he remained with YHUH forty days and forty nights.
23 And during the forty days did Moshe entreat YHUH on behalf of the children of Yisrael, and YHUH hearkened to the prayer of Moshe, and YHUH was entreated of him on behalf of Yisrael.
24 Then spoke YHUH to Moshe to hew two stone tablets and to bring them up to YHUH, who would write upon them the ten mitzvot.
25 Now Moshe did so, and he came down and hewed the two tablets and went up to Mount Sinai to YHUH, and YHUH wrote the ten mitzvot upon the tablets.
26 And Moshe remained yet with YHUH forty days and forty nights, and YHUH instructed him in chukim and mishpatim to impart to Yisrael.
27 And YHUH commanded him respecting the children of Yisrael that they should make a sanctuary for YHUH, that His Name might rest therein, and YHUH showed him the likeness of the sanctuary and the likeness of all its vessels.
28 And at the end of the forty days, Moshe came down from the mount and the two tablets were in his hand.
29 And Moshe came to the children of Yisrael and spoke to them all the words of YHUH, and he taught them torot, chukim and mishpatim which YHUH had taught him.
30 And Moshe told the children of Yisrael the word of YHUH, that a sanctuary should be made for Him, to dwell among the children of Yisrael.
31 And the people rejoiced greatly at all the tov which YHUH had spoken to them, through Moshe, and they said, We will do all that YHUH has spoken to you.
32 And the people rose up like one man and they made generous offerings to the sanctuary of YHUH, and each man brought the offering of YHUH for the work of the sanctuary, and for all its service.
33 And all the children of Yisrael brought each man of all that was found in his possession for the work of the sanctuary of YHUH, gold, silver and brass, and everything that was serviceable for the sanctuary.
34 And all the wise men who were practiced in work came and made the sanctuary of YHUH, according to all that YHUH had commanded, every man in the work in which he had been practiced; and all the wise men in heart made the sanctuary, and its furniture and all the vessels for the set-apart service, as YHUH had commanded Moshe.
35 And the work of the sanctuary of the tabernacle was completed at the end of five months, and the children of Yisrael did all that YHUH had commanded Moshe.
36 And they brought the sanctuary and all its furniture to Moshe; like the representation which YHUH had shown to Moshe, so did the children of Yisrael.
37 And Moshe saw the work, and behold they did it as YHUH had commanded him, so Moshe blessed them.
1 And in the twelfth month, in the twenty-third day of the month, Moshe took Aharon and his sons, and he dressed them in their garments, and anointed them and did to them as YHUH had commanded him, and Moshe brought up all the offerings which YHUH had on that day commanded him.
2 Moshe afterward took Aharon and his sons and said to them, For seven days shall you remain at the door of the tabernacle, for this am I commanded.
3 And Aharon and his sons did all that YHUH had commanded them through Moshe, and they remained for seven days at the door of the tabernacle.
4 And on the eighth day, being the first day of the first month, in the second year from the Yisraelites' departure from Mitzrayim, Moshe erected the sanctuary, and Moshe put up all the furniture of the tabernacle and all the furniture of the sanctuary, and he did all that YHUH had commanded him.
5 And Moshe called to Aharon and his sons, and they brought the burnt offering and the sin offering for themselves and the children of Yisrael, as YHUH had commanded Moshe.
6 On that day the two sons of Aharon, Nadav and Avihu, took strange fire and brought it before YHUH who had not commanded them, and a fire went forth from before YHUH, and consumed them, and they died before YHUH on that day.
7 Then on the day when Moshe had completed to erect the sanctuary, the princes of the children of Yisrael began to bring their offerings before YHUH for the dedication of the altar.
8 And they brought up their offerings each prince for one day, a prince each day for twelve days.
9 And all the offerings which they brought, each man in his day, one silver charger weighing one hundred and thirty shekels, one silver bowl of seventy shekels after the shekel of the sanctuary, both of them full of fine flour, mingled with oil for a meat offering.
10 One spoon, weighing ten shekels of gold, full of incense.
11 One young bullock, one ram, one lamb of the first year for a burnt offering.
12 And one kid of the goats for a sin offering.
13 And for a sacrifice of shalom offering, two oxen, five rams, five male-goats, five lambs of a year old.
14 This did the twelve princes of Yisrael day by day, each man in his day.
15 And it was after this, in the thirteenth day of the month, that Moshe commanded the children of Yisrael to observe the Pesach.
16 And the children of Yisrael kept the Pesach in its season on the fourteenth day of the month, as YHUH had commanded Moshe, so did the children of Yisrael.
17 And in the second month, on the first day of it, YHUH spoke to Moshe, saying,
18 Number the heads of all the males of the children of Yisrael from twenty years old and upward, you and your brother Aharon and the twelve princes of Yisrael.
19 And Moshe did so, and Aharon came with the twelve princes of Yisrael, and they numbered the children of Yisrael in the wilderness of Sinai.
20 And the numbers of the children of Yisrael by the houses of their ahvot, from twenty years old and upward, were six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty.
21 But the children of Levi were not numbered among their brothers the children of Yisrael.
22 And the number of all the males of the children of Yisrael from one month old and upward was twenty-two thousand, two hundred and seventy-three.
23 And the number of the children of Levi from one month old and above was twenty-two thousand.
24 And Moshe placed the priests and the Levites each man to his service and to his burden to serve the sanctuary of the tabernacle, as YHUH had commanded Moshe.
25 And on the twentieth day of the month, the cloud was taken away from the tabernacle of testimony.
26 At that time the children of Yisrael continued their journey from the wilderness of Sinai, and they took a journey of three days, and the cloud rested upon the wilderness of Paran; there the anger of YHUH was kindled against Yisrael, for they had provoked YHUH in asking him for meat, that they might eat.
27 And YHUH hearkened to their voice, and gave them meat that they ate for one month.
28 But after this the anger of YHUH was kindled against them, and He smote them with a great slaughter, and they were buried there in that place.
29 And the children of Yisrael called that place Kevroth Hattaavah, because there they buried the people that lusted for meat.
30 And they departed from Kevroth Hattaavah and pitched in Hazeroth, which is in the wilderness of Paran.
31 And while the children of Yisrael were in Hatzeroth, the anger of YHUH was kindled against Miryam on account of Moshe, and she became leprous, white as snow.
32 And she was confined without the camp for seven days, until she had been received again after her leprosy.
33 The children of Yisrael afterward departed from Hatzeroth, and pitched in the end of the wilderness of Paran.
34 At that time, YHUH spoke to Moshe to send twelve men from the children of Yisrael, one man from a tribe, to go and explore the land of Kanaan.
35 And Moshe sent the twelve men, and they came to the land of Kanaan to search and examine it, and they explored the whole land from the wilderness of Sin to Rechov as you come to Chamoth.
36 And at the end of forty days they came to Moshe and Aharon, and they brought him word as it was in their hearts, and ten of the men brought up an evil report to the children of Yisrael, of the land which they had explored, saying, It is better for us to return to Mitzrayim than to go to this land, a land that consumes its inhabitants.
37 But Yahoshua the son of Nun, and Calev the son of Yephuneh, who were of those that explored the land, said, The land is exceedingly tov.
38 If YHUH delight in us, then He will bring us to this land and give it to us, for it is a land flowing with milk and honey.
39 But the children of Yisrael would not listen to them, and they hearkened to the words of the ten men who had brought up an evil report of the land.
40 And YHUH heard the murmurings of the children of Yisrael and He was angry and swore, saying,
41 Surely not one man of this wicked generation shall see the land from twenty years old and upward excepting Calev the son of Yephuneh and Yahoshua the son of Nun.
42 But surely this wicked generation shall perish in this wilderness, and their children shall come to the land and they shall possess it; so the anger of YHUH was kindled against Yisrael, and He made them wander in the wilderness for forty years until the end of that wicked generation, because they did not follow YHUH.
43 And the people dwelt in the wilderness of Paran a long time, and they afterward proceeded to the wilderness by the way of the Yam Suf.
1 At that time Korach the son of Yetzer the son of Kohath the son of Levi, took many men of the children of Yisrael, and they rose up and quarreled with Moshe and Aharon and the whole congregation.
2 And YHUH was angry with them, and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up, with their houses and all belonging to them, and all the men belonging to Korah.
3 And after this YHUH made the people go round by the way of Mount Seir for a long time.
4 At that time YHUH said to Moshe, Provoke not a war against the children of Esav, for I will not give to you of anything belonging to them, as much as the sole of the foot could tread upon, for I have given Mount Seir for an inheritance to Esav. 5 Therefore did the children of Esav fight against the children of Seir in former times, and YHUH had delivered the children of Seir into the hands of the children of Esav, and destroyed them from before them, and the children of Esav dwelt in their stead to this day.
6 Therefore YHUH said to the children of Yisrael, Fight not against the children of Esav your brothers, for nothing in their land belongs to you, but you may buy food from them for money and eat it, and you may buy mayim of them for money and drink it. 7 And the children of Yisrael did according to the word of YHUH.
8 And the children of Yisrael went around the wilderness, going round by the way of Mount Sinai for a long time, and touched not the children of Esav, and they continued in that district for nineteen years.
9 At that time died Latinus melech of the children of Chittim, in the forty-fifth year of his reign, which is the fourteenth year of the children of Yisrael's departure from Mitzrayim.
10 And they buried him in his place that he had built for himself in the land of Chittim, and Avimnas reigned in his place for thirty-eight years.
11 And the children of Yisrael passed the boundary of the children of Esav in those days, at the end of nineteen years, and they came and passed the road of the wilderness of Moav.
12 And YHUH said to Moshe, Besiege not Moav, and do not fight against them, for I will give you nothing of their land.
13 And the children of Yisrael passed the road of the wilderness of Moav for nineteen years, and they did not fight against them.
14 And in the thirty-sixth year of the children of Yisrael's departing from Mitzrayim YHUH smote the heart of Sihon, melech of the Amorites, and he waged war, and went forth to fight against the children of Moav.
15 And Sihon sent messengers to Beor the son of Yaneas, the son of Balaam, counselor to the melech of Mitzrayim, and to Balaam his son, to curse Moav, in order that it might be delivered into the hand of Sihon.
16 And the messengers went and brought Beor the son of Yaneas, and Balaam his son, from Pethor in Mesopotamia, so Beor and Balaam his son came to the city of Sihon and they cursed Moav and their melech in the presence of Sihon melech of the Amorites.
17 So Sihon went out with his whole army, and he went to Moav and fought against them, and he subdued them, and YHUH delivered them into his hands, and Sihon slew the melech of Moav.
18 And Sihon took all the cities of Moav in the battle; he also took Cheshbon from them, for Cheshbon was one of the cities of Moav, and Sihon placed his princes and his nobles in Cheshbon, and Cheshbon belonged to Sihon in those days.
19 Therefore the parable speakers Beor and Balaam his son uttered these words, saying, Come to Cheshbon, the city of Sihon will be built and established.
20 Woe to you Moav! You are lost, O people of Chemosh! Behold it is written upon the scroll of the Torah of YHUH.
21 And when Sihon had conquered Moav, he placed guards in the cities which he had taken from Moav, and a considerable number of the children of Moav fell in battle into the hand of Sihon, and he made a great capture of them, sons and daughters, and he slew their melech; so Sihon turned back to his own land.
22 And Sihon gave numerous presents of silver and gold to Beor and Balaam his son, and he dismissed them, and they went to Mesopotamia to their home and country.
23 At that time all the children of Yisrael passed from the road of the wilderness of Moav, and returned and surrounded the wilderness of Edom.
24 So the whole congregation came to the wilderness of Sin in the first month of the fortieth year from their departure from Mitzrayim, and the children of Yisrael dwelt there in Kadesh, of the wilderness of Sin, and Miryam died there and she was buried there.
25 At that time Moshe sent messengers to Hadad melech of Edom, saying, This says your brother Yisrael, Let me pass I ask you through your land, we will not pass through field or vineyard, we will not drink the mayim of the well; we will walk in the melech's road.
26 And Edom said to him, You shall not pass through my country, and Edom went forth to meet the children of Yisrael with a mighty people.
27 And the children of Esav refused to let the children of Yisrael pass through their land, so the Yisraelites removed from them and fought not against them.
28 For before this YHUH had commanded the children of Yisrael, saying, You shall not fight against the children of Esav, therefore the Yisraelites removed from them and did not fight against them.
29 So the children of Yisrael departed from Kadesh, and all the people came to Mount Hor.
30 At that time YHUH said to Moshe, Tell your brother Aharon that he shall die there, for he shall not come to the land which I have given to the children of Yisrael. 31 And Aharon went up, at the command of YHUH, to Mount Hor, in the fortieth year, in the fifth month, on the first day of the month.
32 And Aharon was one hundred and twenty-three years old when he died in Mount Hor.
1 And melech Arad the Canaanite, who dwelt in the south, heard that the Yisraelites had come by the way of the spies, and he arranged his forces to fight against the Yisraelites.
2 And the children of Yisrael were greatly afraid of him, for he had a great and heavy army, so the children of Yisrael resolved to return to Mitzrayim.
3 And the children of Yisrael turned back about the distance of three days' journey to Maserath B’nai Yaakon, for they were greatly afraid on account of melech Arad.
4 And the children of Yisrael would not get back to their places, so they remained in B’nai Yaakon for thirty days.
5 And when the children of Levi saw that the children of Yisrael would not turn back, they were jealous for the sake of YHUH, and they rose up and fought against the Yisraelites their brothers, and slew of them a great many, and forced them to turn back to their place, Mount Hor.
6 And when they returned, melech Arad was still arranging his host for battle against the Yisraelites.
7 And Yisrael vowed a vow, saying, If you will deliver this people into my hand, then I will utterly destroy their cities.
8 And YHUH hearkened to the voice of Yisrael, and he delivered the Kannaim into their hand, and he utterly destroyed them and their cities, and he called the name of the place Hormah.
9 And the children of Yisrael journeyed from Mount Hor and pitched in Ovoth, and they journeyed from Ovoth and they pitched at Iye-Avarim, in the border of Moav.
10 And the children of Yisrael sent to Moav, saying, Let us pass now through your land into our place, but the children of Moav would not allow the children of Yisrael to pass through their land, for the children of Moav were greatly afraid lest the children of Yisrael should do to them as Sihon melech of the Amorites had done to them, who had taken their land and had slain many of them.
11 Therefore Moav would not allow the Yisraelites to pass through their land, and YHUH commanded the children of Yisrael, saying, That they should not fight against Moav, so the Yisraelites removed from Moav.
12 And the children of Yisrael journeyed from the border of Moav, and they came to the other side of Arnon, the border of Moav, between Moav and the Amorites, and they pitched in the border of Sihon, melech of the Amorites, in the wilderness of Kedemoth.
13 And the children of Yisrael sent messengers to Sihon, melech of the Amorites, saying,
14 Let us pass through your land, we will not turn into the fields or into the vineyards, we will go along by the melech's highway until we shall have passed your border, but Sihon would not allow the Yisraelites to pass.
15 So Sihon collected all the people of the Amorites and went forth into the wilderness to meet the children of Yisrael, and he fought against Yisrael in Yahaz.
16 And YHUH delivered Sihon melech of the Amorites into the hand of the children of Yisrael, and Yisrael smote all the people of Sihon with the edge of the sword and avenged the cause of Moav.
17 And the children of Yisrael took possession of the land of Sihon from Aram to Yabuk, to the children of Ammon, and they took all the spoil of the cities.
18 And Yisrael took all these cities, and Yisrael dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites.
19 And all the children of Yisrael resolved to fight against the children of Ammon, to take their land also.
20 So YHUH said to the children of Yisrael, Do not besiege the children of Ammon, neither stir up battle against them, for I will give nothing to you of their land, And the children of Yisrael hearkened to the word of YHUH, and did not fight against the children of Ammon.
21 And the children of Yisrael turned and went up by the way of Bashan to the land of Og, melech of Bashan, and Og the melech of Bashan went out to meet the Yisraelites in battle, and he had with him many valiant men, and a very strong force from the people of the Amorites.
22 And Og melech of Bashan was a very powerful man, but Naaron his son was exceedingly powerful, even stronger than he was.
23 And Og said in his heart, Behold now the whole camp of Yisrael takes up a space of three parsa, now will I smite them at once without sword or spear.
24 And Og went up Mount Yahaz, and took from there one large stone, the length of which was three parsa, and he placed it on his head, and resolved to throw it upon the camp of the children of Yisrael, to smite all the Yisraelites with that stone.
25 And the malach of YHUH came and pierced the stone upon the head of Og, and the stone fell upon the neck of Og that Og fell to the earth on account of the weight of the stone upon his neck.
26 At that time YHUH said to the children of Yisrael, Be not afraid of him, for I have given him and all his people and all his land into your hand, and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon. 27 And Moshe went down to him with a small number of the children of Yisrael, and Moshe smote Og with a stick at the ankles of his feet and slew him.
28 The children of Yisrael afterward pursued the children of Og and all his people, and they beat and destroyed them till there was no remnant left of them.
29 Moshe afterward sent some of the children of Yisrael to spy out Yaazer, for Yaazer was a very famous city.
30 And the spies went to Yaazer and explored it, and the spies trusted in YHUH, and they fought against the men of Yaazer.
31 And these men took Yaazer and its villages, and YHUH delivered them into their hand, and they drove out the Amorites who had been there.
32 And the children of Yisrael took the land of the two melechim of the Amorites, sixty cities that were on the other side of Yarden, from the brook of Arnon to Mount Herman.
33 And the children of Yisrael journeyed and came into the plain of Moav that is on this side of Yarden, by Yericho.
34 And the children of Moav heard all the evil which the children of Yisrael had done to the two melechim of the Amorites, to Sihon and Og, so all the men of Moav were greatly afraid of the Yisraelites.
35 And the zachanim of Moav said, Behold the two melechim of the Amorites, Sihon and Og, who were more powerful than all the melechim of the earth, could not stand against the children of Yisrael, how then can we stand before them?
36 Surely they sent us a message before now to pass through our land on their way, and we would not allow them, now they will turn upon us with their heavy swords and destroy us; and Moav was distressed on account of the children of Yisrael, and they were greatly afraid of them, and they counseled together what was to be done to the children of Yisrael.
37 And the zachanim of Moav resolved and took one of their men, Balak the son of Tzippor the Moavite, and made him melech over them at that time, and Balak was a very wise man.
38 And the zachanim of Moav rose up and sent to the children of Midiyan to make shalom with them, for a great battle and enmity had been in those days between Moav and Midiyan, from the days of Hadad the son of Bedad melech of Edom, who smote Midiyan in the field of Moav, to these days.
39 And the children of Moav sent to the children of Midiyan, and they made shalom with them, and the zachanim of Midiyan came to the land of Moav to make shalom in behalf of the children of Midiyan.
40 And the zachanim of Moav counseled with the zachanim of Midiyan what to do in order to save their lives from Yisrael.
41 And all the children of Moav said to the zachanim of Midiyan, Now therefore the children of Yisrael lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licks up the grass of the field, for this did they do to the two melechim of the Amorites who are stronger than we are.
42 And the zachanim of Midiyan said to Moav, We have heard that at the time when Sihon melech of the Amorites fought against you, when he prevailed over you and took your land, he had sent to Beor the son of Yaneas and to Balaam his son from Mesopotamia, and they came and cursed you; therefore did the hand of Sihon prevail over you, that he took your land.
43 Now therefore send you also to Balaam his son, for he still remains in his land, and give him his hire, that he may come and curse all the people of whom you are afraid; so the zachanim of Moav heard this thing, and it pleased them to send for Balaam the son of Beor.
44 So Balak the son of Tzippor melech of Moav sent messengers to Balaam, saying,
45 Behold there is a people come out from Mitzrayim, behold they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me.
46 Now therefore come and curse this people for me, for they are too mighty for me, perhaps I shall prevail to fight against them, and drive them out, for I heard that he whom you bless is blessed, and whom you curse is cursed.
47 So the messengers of Balak went to Balaam and brought Balaam to curse the people to fight against Moav.
48 And Balaam came to Balak to curse Yisrael, and YHUH said to Balaam, Curse not this people for it is blessed. 49 And Balak urged Balaam day by day to curse Yisrael, but Balaam hearkened not to Balak on account of the word of YHUH that He had spoken to Balaam.
50 And when Balak saw that Balaam would not accede to his wish, he rose up and went home, and Balaam also returned to his land and he went from there to Midiyan.
51 And the children of Yisrael journeyed from the plain of Moav, and pitched by Yarden from Beth-Yesimoth even to Avel-Shittim, at the end of the plains of Moav.
52 And when the children of Yisrael abode in the plain of Shittim, they began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moav.
53 And the children of Yisrael approached Moav, and the children of Moav pitched their tents opposite the camp of the children of Yisrael.
54 And the children of Moav were afraid of the children of Yisrael, and the children of Moav took all their daughters and their wives of beautiful aspect and comely appearance, and dressed them in gold and silver and costly garments.
55 And the children of Moav seated those women at the door of their tents, in order that the children of Yisrael might see them and turn to them, and not fight against Moav.
56 And all the children of Moav did this thing to the children of Yisrael, and every man placed his wife and daughter at the door of his tent, and all the children of Yisrael saw the act of the children of Moav, and the children of Yisrael turned to the daughters of Moav and coveted them, and they went to them.
57 And it came to pass that when a Ivri came to the door of the tent of Moav, and saw a daughter of Moav and desired her in his heart, and spoke with her at the door of the tent that which he desired, while they were speaking together the men of the tent would come out and speak to the Ivri like to these words:
58 Surely you know that we are brothers, we are all the descendants of Lot and the descendants of Avraham his brother, why then will you not remain with us, and why will you not eat our bread and our sacrifice?
59 And when the children of Moav had this overwhelmed him with their speeches, and enticed him by their flattering words, they seated him in the tent and cooked and sacrificed for him, and he ate of their sacrifice and of their bread.
60 They then gave him wine and he drank and became intoxicated, and they placed before him a beautiful damsel, and he did with her as he liked, for he knew not what he was doing, as he had drunk plenty of wine.
61 This did the children of Moav to Yisrael in that place, in the plain of Shittim, and the anger of YHUH was kindled against Yisrael on account of this matter, and he sent a pestilence among them, and there died of the Yisraelites twenty-four thousand men.
62 Now there was a man of the children of Shimeon whose name was Zimri, the son of Salu, who connected himself with the Midyanite Cosbi, the daughter of Zur, melech of Midiyan, in the sight of all the children of Yisrael.
63 And Phineas the son of Elazer, the son of Aharon the priest, saw this wicked thing which Zimri had done, and he took a spear and rose up and went after them, and pierced them both and slew them, and the pestilence ceased from the children of Yisrael.
1 At that time after the pestilence, YHUH said to Moshe, and to Elazer the son of Aharon the priest, saying,
2 Number the heads of the whole community of the children of Yisrael, from twenty years old and upward, all that went forth in the army. 3 And Moshe and Elazer numbered the children of Yisrael after their families, and the number of all Yisrael was seven hundred thousand, seven hundred and thirty.
4 And the number of the children of Levi, from one month old and upward, was twenty-three thousand, and among these there was not a man of those numbered by Moshe and Aharon in the wilderness of Sinai.
5 For YHUH had told them that they would die in the wilderness, so they all died, and not one had been left of them except Calev the son of Yephuneh, and Yahoshua the son of Nun.
6 And it was after this that YHUH said to Moshe, Say to the children of Yisrael to avenge upon Midiyan the cause of their brothers the children of Yisrael. 7 And Moshe did so, and the children of Yisrael chose from among them twelve thousand men, being one thousand to a tribe, and they went to Midiyan.
8 And the children of Yisrael warred against Midiyan, and they slew every male, also the five princes of Midiyan, and Balaam the son of Beor did they slay with the sword.
9 And the children of Yisrael took the wives of Midiyan captive, with their little ones and their cattle, and all belonging to them.
10 And they took all the spoil and all the prey, and they brought it to Moshe and to Elazer to the plains of Moav.
11 And Moshe and Elazer and all the princes of the congregation went forth to meet them with joy.
12 And they divided all the spoil of Midiyan, and the children of Yisrael had been revenged upon Midiyan for the cause of their brothers the children of Yisrael.
1 At that time YHUH said to Moshe, Behold your days are approaching to an end, take now Yahoshua the son of Nun your servant and place him in the tabernacle, and I will command him; and Moshe did so.
2 And YHUH appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of cloud, and the pillar of cloud stood at the entrance of the tabernacle.
3 And YHUH commanded Yahoshua the son of Nun and said to him, Be strong and courageous, for you shall bring the children of Yisrael to the land that I swore to give them, and I will be with you.
4 And Moshe said to Yahoshua, Be strong and courageous, for you will make the children of Yisrael inherit the land, and YHUH will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; be not afraid nor disheartened.
5 And Moshe called to all the children of Yisrael and said to them, You have seen all the tov which YHUH your YHUH has done for you in the wilderness.
6 Now therefore observe all the words of this Torah, and have your halacha in the way of YHUH your YHUH, turn not from the way which YHUH has commanded you, either to the right or to the left.
7 And Moshe taught the children of Yisrael chukim and mishpatim and Torot to do in the land as YHUH had commanded him.
8 And he taught them the halacha of YHUH and his Torot, behold, they are written upon the scroll of the Torah of YHUH which He gave to the children of Yisrael by the hand of Moshe.
9 And Moshe finished commanding the children of Yisrael, and YHUH said to him, saying, Go up to the Mount Avarim and die there, and be gathered to your people as Aharon your brother was gathered. 10 And Moshe went up as YHUH had commanded him, and he died there in the land of Moav by the order of YHUH, in the fortieth year from the Yisraelites going forth from the land of Mitzrayim.
11 And the children of Yisrael wept for Moshe in the plains of Moav for thirty days, and the days of weeping and mourning for Moshe were completed.
1 And it was after the death of Moshe that YHUH said to Yahoshua the son of Nun, saying,
2 Rise up, and pass the Yarden to the land which I have given to the children of Yisrael and you shall make the children of Yisrael inherit the land.
3 Every place upon which the sole of your feet shall tread shall belong to you from the wilderness of Levanon to the great river the river of Perath shall be your boundary.
4 No man shall stand up against you all the days of your life; as I was with Moshe, so will I be with you, only be strong and of tov courage to observe all the Torah which Moshe commanded you, turn not from the way either to the right or to the left, in order that you may prosper in all that you do.
5 And Yahoshua commanded the officers of Yisrael, saying, Pass through the camp and command the people, saying, Prepare for yourselves provisions, for in three days more you will pass the Yarden to possess the land.
6 And the officers of the children of Yisrael did so, and they commanded the people and they did all that Yahoshua had commanded.
7 And Yahoshua sent two men to spy out the land of Yericho, and the men went and spied out Yericho.
8 And at the end of seven days they came to Yahoshua in the camp and said to him, YHUH has delivered the whole land into our hand, and the inhabitants of it are melted with fear because of us.
9 And it came to pass after that, that Yahoshua rose up in the morning and all Yisrael with him, and they journeyed from Shittim, and Yahoshua and all Yisrael with him passed the Yarden; and Yahoshua was eighty-two years old when he passed the Yarden with Yisrael.
10 And the people went up from Yarden on the tenth day of the first month, and they encamped in Gilgal at the eastern corner of Yericho.
11 And the children of Yisrael kept the Pesach in Gilgal, in the plains of Yericho, on the fourteenth day at the month, as it is written in the Torah of Moshe.
12 And the manna ceased at that time on the next day after the Pesach, and there was no more manna for the children of Yisrael, and they ate of the produce of the land of Kanaan.
13 And Yericho was entirely closed against the children of Yisrael, no one came out or went in.
14 And it was in the second month, on the first day of the month, that YHUH said to Yahoshua, Rise up, behold I have given Yericho into your hand with all the people of it; and all your fighting men shall go around the city, once each day, this shall you do for six days.
15 And the kohanim shall blow upon shofars, and when you shall hear the sound of the shofar, all the people shall give a great shouting that the walls of the city shall fall down; all the people shall go up every man against his opponent. 16 And Yahoshua did so according to all that YHUH had commanded him.
17 And on the seventh day they went around the city seven times, and the kohanim blew upon the shofars.
18 And at the seventh round, Yahoshua said to the people, Shout, for YHUH has delivered the whole city into our hands.
19 Only the city and all that it contains shall be cursed to YHUH, and keep yourselves from the cursed thing, lest you make the camp of Yisrael cursed and trouble it.
20 But all the silver and gold and brass and iron shall be consecrated to YHUH, they shall come into the treasury of YHUH.
21 And the people blew upon shofars and made a great shouting, and the walls of Yericho fell down, and all the people went up, every man straight before him, and they took the city and utterly destroyed all that was in it, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword.
22 And they burned the whole city with fire; only the vessels of silver and gold, and brass and iron, they put into the treasury of YHUH.
23 And Yahoshua swore at that time, saying, Cursed be the man who builds Yericho; he shall lay the foundation of it in his bechor, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it.
24 And Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zavdi, the son of Zerah, son of Yahudah, dealt treacherously in the cursed thing, and he took of the cursed thing and hid it in the tent, and the anger of YHUH was kindled against Yisrael.
25 And it was after this when the children of Yisrael had returned from burning Yericho, Yahoshua sent men to spy out also Ai, and to fight against it.
26 And the men went up and spied out Ai, and they returned and said, Let not all the people go up with you to Ai, only let about three thousand men go up and smite the city, for the men of it are but few.
27 And Yahoshua did so, and there went up with him of the children of Yisrael about three thousand men, and they fought against the men of Ai.
28 And the battle was severe against Yisrael, and the men of Ai smote thirty-six men of Yisrael, and the children of Yisrael fled from before the men of Ai.
29 And when Yahoshua saw this thing, he tore his garments and fell upon his face to the ground before YHUH, he, with the zachanim of Yisrael, and they put dust upon their heads.
30 And Yahoshua said, Why O YHUH did you bring this people over the Yarden? What shall I say after the Yisraelites have turned their backs against their enemies?
31 Now therefore all the Kannaim, inhabitants of the land, will hear this thing, and surround us and cut off our name.
32 And YHUH said to Yahoshua, Why do you fall upon your face? Rise, get up, for the Yisraelites have sinned, and taken of the cursed thing; I will no more be with them unless they destroy the cursed thing from among them. 33 And Yahoshua rose up and assembled the people, and brought the Urim by the order of YHUH, and the tribe of Yahudah was taken, and Achan the son of Carmi was taken.
34 And Yahoshua said to Achan, Tell me my son, what have you done, and Achan said, I saw among the spoil a goodly garment of Shinar and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight; I coveted them and took them, and behold they are all hidden in the earth in the midst of the tent.
35 And Yahoshua sent men who went and took them from the tent of Achan, and they brought them to Yahoshua.
36 And Yahoshua took Achan and these utensils, and his sons and daughters and all belonging to him, and they brought them into the Valley of Achor.
37 And Yahoshua burned them there with fire, and all the Yisraelites stoned Achan with stones, and they raised over him a heap of stones, therefore did he call that place the Valley of Achor, so YHUH's anger was appeased, and Yahoshua afterward came to the city and fought against it.
38 And YHUH said to Yahoshua, Fear not, neither be you dismayed, behold I have given into your hand Ai, her melech and her people, and you shall do to them as you did to Yericho and her melech, only the spoil of it and the cattle of it shall you take for a prey for yourselves; lay an ambush for the city behind it. 39 So Yahoshua did according to the word of YHUH, and he chose from among the sons of war thirty thousand valiant men, and he sent them, and they lay in ambush for the city.
40 And he commanded them, saying, When you shall see us we will flee before them with cunning, and they will pursue us, you shall then rise out of the ambush and take the city, and they did so.
41 And Yahoshua fought, and the men of the city went out toward Yisrael, not knowing that they were lying in ambush for them behind the city.
42 And Yahoshua and all the Yisraelites feigned themselves wearied out before them, and they fled by the way of the wilderness with cunning.
43 And the men of Ai gathered all the people who were in the city to pursue the Yisraelites, and they went out and were drawn away from the city, not one remained, and they left the city open and pursued the Yisraelites.
44 And those who were lying in ambush rose up out of their places, and hurried to come to the city and took it and set it on fire, and the men of Ai turned back, and behold the smoke of the city ascended to the skies, and they had no means of retreating either one way or the other.
45 And all the men of Ai were in the midst of Yisrael, some on this side and some on that side, and they smote them so that not one of them remained.
46 And the children of Yisrael took Melosh melech of Ai alive, and they brought him to Yahoshua, and Yahoshua hanged him on a tree and he died.
47 And the children of Yisrael returned to the city after having burned it, and they smote all those that were in it with the edge of the sword.
48 And the number of those that had fallen of the men of Ai, both man and woman, was twelve thousand; only the cattle and the spoil of the city they took to themselves, according to the word of YHUH to Yahoshua.
49 And all the melechim on this side Yarden, all the melechim of Kanaan, heard of the evil that the children of Yisrael had done to Yericho and to Ai, and they gathered themselves together to fight against Yisrael.
50 Only the inhabitants of Giveon were greatly afraid of fighting against the Yisraelites lest they should perish, so they acted cunningly, and they came to Yahoshua and to all Yisrael, and said to them, We have come from a distant land, now therefore make a covenant with us.
51 And the inhabitants of Giveon over-reached the children of Yisrael, and the children of Yisrael made a covenant with them, and they made shalom with them, and the princes of the congregation swore to them, but afterward the children of Yisrael knew that they were neighbors to them and were dwelling among them.
52 But the children of Yisrael slew them not; for they had sworn to them by YHUH, and they became hewers of wood and drawers of mayim.
53 And Yahoshua said to them, Why did you deceive me, to do this thing to us? And they answered him, saying, Because it was told to your servants all that you had done to all the melechim of the Amorites, and we were greatly afraid of our lives, and we did this thing.
54 And Yahoshua appointed them on that day to hew wood and to draw mayim, and he divided them for slaves to all the tribes of Yisrael.
55 And when Adoni-Tzedek melech of Yahrushalayim heard all that the children of Yisrael had done to Yericho and to Ai, he sent to Hoham melech of Hevron and to Piram melech at Yarmuth, and to Yaphiya melech of Lachish and to Dever melech of Eglon, saying,
56 Come up to me and help me, that we may smite the children of Yisrael and the inhabitants of Giveon who have made shalom with the children of Yisrael.
57 And they gathered themselves together and the five melechim of the Amorites went up with all their camps, a mighty people numerous as the sand of the seashore.
58 And all these melechim came and encamped before Giveon, and they began to fight against the inhabitants of Giveon, and all the men of Giveon sent to Yahoshua, saying, Come up quickly to us and help us, for all the melechim of the Amorites have gathered together to fight against us.
59 And Yahoshua and all the fighting people went up from Gilgal, and Yahoshua came suddenly to them, and smote these five melechim with a great slaughter.
60 And YHUH confounded them before the children at Yisrael, who smote them with a terrible slaughter in Giveon, and pursued them along the way that goes up to Beth Horon to Makkedah, and they fled from before the children of Yisrael.
61 And while they were fleeing, YHUH sent upon them hailstones from the shamayim, and more of them died by the hailstones, than by the slaughter of the children of Yisrael.
62 And the children of Yisrael pursued them, and they still smote them in the road, going on and smiting them.
63 And when they were smiting, the day was declining toward evening, and Yahoshua said in the sight of all the people, Sun, stand still upon Giveon, and moon in the Valley of Ayalon, until the nation shall have revenged itself upon its enemies.
64 And YHUH hearkened to the voice of Yahoshua, and the sun stood still in the midst of the shamayim, and it stood still thirty-six moments, and the moon also stood still and hurried not to go down a whole day.
65 And there was no day like that, before it or after it that YHUH hearkened to the voice of a man, for YHUH fought for Yisrael.
1 Then spoke Yahoshua this song, on the day that YHUH had given the Amorites into the hand of Yahoshua and the children of Yisrael, and he said in the sight of all Yisrael,
2 You have done mighty things, O YHUH, you have performed great deeds; Me-Camocha? My lips shall sing to Your Name.
3 My goodness and my fortress, my high tower, I will sing a new song to you, with thanksgiving will I sing to you, you are the strength of my salvation.
4 All the melechim of the earth shall praise you, the princes of the world shall sing to you, the children of Yisrael shall rejoice in your salvation, they shall sing and praise your power.
5 To you, O YHUH, did we confide; we said You are our YHUH, for You were our shelter and strong tower against our enemies.
6 To you we cried and were not ashamed, in You we trusted and were delivered; when we cried to You, you did hear our voice, You did deliver our beings from the sword, You did show to us Your rachamim, You did give to us Your salvation, You did rejoice our hearts with Your strength.
7 You did go forth for our salvation, with Your arm You did redeem Your people; You did answer us from the shamayim of your set-apartness, you did save us from ten thousands of people.
8 The sun and moon stood still in the shamayim, and You did stand in Your wrath against our oppressors and did command Your mishpatim over them.
9 All the princes of the earth stood up, the melechim of the nations had gathered themselves together, they were not moved at Your presence, they desired your battles.
10 You did rise against them in Your anger, and did bring down Your wrath upon them; You did destroy them in Your anger, and cut them off in Your heart.
11 Nations have been consumed with Your fury, kingdoms have declined because of Your wrath, You did wound melechim in the day of your anger.
12 You did pour out Your fury upon them, Your wrathful anger took hold of them; You did turn their iniquity upon them, and did cut them off in their wickedness.
13 They did spread a trap, they fell therein, in the net they hid, and their foot was caught.
14 Your hand was ready for all Your enemies who said, Through their sword they possessed the land, through their arm they dwelt in the city; You did fill their faces with shame, You did bring their horns down to the ground, you did terrify them in Your wrath, and did destroy them in Your anger.
15 The earth trembled and shook at the sound of Your storm over them, You did not withhold their beings from death, and did bring down their lives to the grave.
16 You did pursue them in Your storm, You did consume them in Your whirlwind, you did turn their rain into hail, they fell in deep pits so that they could not rise.
17 Their carcasses were like rubbish cast out in the middle of the streets.
18 They were consumed and destroyed in Your anger, You did save Your people with your might.
19 Therefore our hearts rejoice in You, our beings exalt in Your salvation.
20 Our tongues shall relate Your might, we will sing and praise Your wondrous works.
21 For You did save us from our enemies, You did deliver us from those who rose up against us, You did destroy them from before us and depress them beneath our feet.
22 Thus shall all your enemies perish O YHUH, and the wicked shall be like chaff driven by the wind, and Your beloved shall be like trees planted by the mayim.
23 So Yahoshua and all Yisrael with him returned to the camp in Gilgal, after having smitten all the melechim, so that not a remnant was left of them.
24 And the five melechim fled alone on foot from battle, and hid themselves in a cave, and Yahoshua sought for them in the field of battle, and did not find them.
25 And it was afterward told to Yahoshua, saying, The melechim are found and behold they are hidden in a cave.
26 And Yahoshua said, Appoint men to be at the mouth of the cave, to guard them, lest they take themselves away; and the children of Yisrael did so.
27 And Yahoshua called to all Yisrael and said to the officers of battle, Place your feet upon the necks of these melechim, and Yahoshua said, So shall YHUH do to all your enemies.
28 And Yahoshua commanded afterward that they should slay the melechim and cast them into the cave, and to put great stones at the mouth of the cave.
29 And Yahoshua went afterward with all the people that were with him on that day to Makkedah, and he smote it with the edge of the sword.
30 And he utterly destroyed the beings and all belonging to the city, and he did to the melech and people of it as he had done to Yericho.
31 And he passed from there to Livnah and he fought against it, and YHUH delivered it into his hand, and Yahoshua smote it with the edge of the sword, and all the beings of it, and he did to it and to the melech of it as he had done to Yericho.
32 And from there he passed on to Lachish to fight against it, and Horam melech of Aza went up to assist the men of Lachish, and Yahoshua smote him and his people until there was none left to him.
33 And Yahoshua took Lachish and all the people of it, and he did to it as he had done to Livnah.
34 And Yahoshua passed from there to Eglon, and he took that also, and he smote it and all the people of it with the edge of the sword.
35 And from there he passed to Hevron and fought against it and took it and utterly destroyed it, and he returned from there with all Yisrael to Devir and fought against it and smote it with the edge of the sword.
36 And he destroyed every being in it, he left none remaining, and he did to it and the melech of it as he had done to Yericho.
37 And Yahoshua smote all the melechim of the Amorites from Kadesh-Barnea to Azah, and he took their country at once, for YHUH had fought for Yisrael.
38 And Yahoshua with all Yisrael came to the camp to Gilgal.
39 When at that time Yavin melech of Chazor heard all that Yahoshua had done to the melechim of the Amorites, Yavin sent to Yovat melech of Midiyan, and to Lavan melech of Shimron, to Yephal melech of Achshaph, and to all the melechim of the Amorites, saying,
40 Come quickly to us and help us, that we may smite the children of Yisrael, before they come upon us and do to us as they have done to the other melechim of the Amorites.
41 And all these melechim hearkened to the words of Yavin, melech of Chazor, and they went forth with all their camps, seventeen melechim, and their people were as numerous as the sand on the seashore, together with horses and mirkavot innumerable, and they came and pitched together at the mayim of Merom, and they were met together to fight against Yisrael.
42 And YHUH said to Yahoshua, Fear them not, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver them up all slain before you, you shall plough their horses and burn their mirkavot with fire. 43 And Yahoshua with all the men of war came suddenly upon them and smote them, and they fell into their hands, for YHUH had delivered them into the hands of the children of Yisrael.
44 So the children of Yisrael pursued all these melechim with their camps, and smote them until there was none left of them, and Yahoshua did to them as YHUH had spoken to him.
45 And Yahoshua returned at that time to Chazor and smote it with the sword and destroyed every being in it and burned it with fire, and from Chazor, Yahoshua passed to Shimron and smote it and utterly destroyed it.
46 From there he passed to Achshaph and he did to it as he had done to Shimron.
47 From there he passed to Adulam and he smote all the people in it, and he did to Adulam as he had done to Achshaph and to Shimron.
48 And he passed from them to all the cities of the melechim that he had smitten, and he smote all the people that were left of them and he utterly destroyed them.
49 Only their booty and cattle the Yisraelites took to themselves as a prey, but every human being they smote, they suffered not a being to live.
50 As YHUH had commanded Moshe so did Yahoshua and all Yisrael, they failed not in anything.
51 So Yahoshua and all the children of Yisrael smote the whole land of Kanaan as YHUH had commanded them, and smote all their melechim, being thirty-one melechim, and the children of Yisrael took their whole country.
52 Besides the kingdoms of Sihon and Og which are on the other side Yarden, of which Moshe had smitten many cities, and Moshe gave them to the Reuvenites and the Gadites and to half the tribe of Menasheh.
53 And Yahoshua smote all the melechim that were on this side Yarden to the west, and gave them for an inheritance to the nine tribes and to the half tribe of Yisrael.
54 For five years did Yahoshua carry on the war with these melechim, and he gave their cities to the Yisraelites, and the land became tranquil from battle throughout the cities of the Amorites and the Kannaim.
1 At that time in the fifth year after the children of Yisrael had passed over Yarden, after the children of Yisrael had rested from their war with the Kannaim, at that time great and severe battles arose between Edom and the children of Chittim, and the children of Chittim fought against Edom.
2 And Avianus melech of Chittim went forth in that year, that is in the thirty-first year of his reign, and a great force with him of the mighty men of the children of Chittim, and he went to Seir to fight against the children of Esav.
3 And Hadad the melech of Edom heard of his report, and he went forth to meet him with a heavy people and strong force, and engaged in battle with him in the field of Edom.
4 And the hand of Chittim prevailed over the children of Esav, and the children of Chittim slew of the children of Esav, twenty-two thousand men, and all the children of Esav fled from before them.
5 And the children of Chittim pursued them and they reached Hadad melech of Edom, who was running before them and they caught him alive, and brought him to Avianus melech of Chittim.
6 And Avianus ordered him to be slain, and Hadad melech of Edom died in the forty-eighth year of his reign.
7 And the children of Chittim continued their pursuit of Edom, and they smote them with a great slaughter and Edom became subject to the children of Chittim.
8 And the children of Chittim ruled over Edom, and Edom became under the hand of the children of Chittim and became one malchut from that day.
9 And from that time they could no more lift up their heads, and their malchut became one with the children of Chittim.
10 And Avianus placed officers in Edom and all the children of Edom became subject and tributary to Avianus, and Avianus turned back to his own land, Chittim.
11 And when he returned he renewed his government and built for himself a spacious and fortified palace for a royal residence, and reigned securely over the children of Chittim and over Edom.
12 In those days, after the children of Yisrael had driven away all the Kannaim and the Amorites, Yahoshua was old and advanced in years.
13 And YHUH said to Yahoshua, You are old, advanced in life, and a great part of the land remains to be possessed. 14 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes and to the half tribe of Menasheh, and Yahoshua rose up and did as YHUH had spoken to him.
15 And he divided the whole land to the tribes of Yisrael as an inheritance according to their divisions.
16 But to the tribe at Levi he gave no inheritance; the offerings of YHUH
are their inheritance as YHUH had spoken of them by the hand of Moshe.
17 And Yahoshua gave Mount Hevron to Calev the son of Yephuneh, one portion above his brothers, as YHUH had spoken through Moshe.
18 Therefore Hevron became an inheritance to Calev and his children to this day.
19 And Yahoshua divided the whole land by lots to all Yisrael for an inheritance, as YHUH had commanded him.
20 And the children of Yisrael gave cities to the Levites from their own inheritance, and suburbs for their cattle, and property, as YHUH had commanded Moshe so did the children of Yisrael, and they divided the land by lot whether great or small.
21 And they went to inherit the land according to their boundaries, and the children of Yisrael gave to Yahoshua the son of Nun an inheritance among them.
22 By the word of YHUH did they give to him the city that he required, Timnath-Serach in Mount Ephraim, and he built the city and dwelt therein.
23 These are the inheritances that Elazer the priest and Yahoshua the son of Nun and the heads of the ahvot of the tribes portioned out to the children of Yisrael by lot in Shiloh, before YHUH, at the door of the tabernacle, and they left off dividing the land.
24 And YHUH gave the land to the Yisraelites, and they possessed it as YHUH had spoken to them, and as YHUH had sworn to their ancestors.
25 And YHUH gave to the Yisraelites rest from all their enemies around them, and no man stood up against them, and YHUH delivered all their enemies into their hands, and not one thing failed of all the tov which YHUH had spoken to the children of Yisrael; yes YHUH performed every thing.
26 And Yahoshua called to all the children of Yisrael and he blessed them, and commanded them to serve YHUH, and he afterward sent them away, and they went each man to his city, and each man to his inheritance.
27 And the children of Yisrael served YHUH all the days of Yahoshua, and YHUH gave them rest from all around them, and they dwelt securely in their cities.
28 And it came to pass in those days that Avianus melech of Chittim died, in the thirty-eighth year of his reign, that is the seventh year of his reign over Edom, and they buried him in his place that he had built for himself, and Latinus reigned in his stead fifty years.
29 And during his reign he brought forth an army, and he went and fought against the inhabitants of Britannia and Kernania, the children of Elisha son of Yahvan, and he prevailed over them and made them tributary.
30 He then heard that Edom had revolted from under the hand of Chittim, and Latinus went to them and smote them and subdued them, and placed them under the hand of the children of Chittim, and Edom became one malchut with the children of Chittim all the days.
31 And for many years there was no melech in Edom, and their government was with the children of Chittim and their melech.
32 And it was in the twenty-sixth year after the children of Yisrael had passed the Yarden, that is the sixty-sixth year after the children of Yisrael had departed from Mitzrayim, that Yahoshua was old, advanced in years, being one hundred and eight years old in those days.
33 And Yahoshua called to all Yisrael, to their zachanim, their shophtim and officers, after YHUH had given to all the Yisraelites rest from all their enemies round about, and Yahoshua said to the zachanim of Yisrael, and to their shophtim, Behold I am old, advanced in years, and you have seen what YHUH has done to all the nations whom He has driven away from before you, for it is YHUH who has fought for you.
34 Now therefore strengthen yourselves to keep and to do all the words of the Torah of Moshe, not to deviate from it to the right or to the left, and not to come among those nations who are left in the land; neither shall you make mention of the name of their ahlohim, but you shall cleave to YHUH Your Ahlohim, as you have done to this day.
35 And Yahoshua greatly exhorted the children of Yisrael to serve YHUH all their days.
36 And all the Yisraelites said, We will serve YHUH our YHUH all our days, we and our children, and our children's children, and our zera le-olam-va-ed.
37 And Yahoshua made a covenant with the people on that day, and he sent away the children of Yisrael, and they went each man to his inheritance and to his city.
38 And it was in those days, when the children of Yisrael were dwelling securely in their cities, that they buried the coffins of the tribes of their ancestors, which they had brought up from Mitzrayim, each man in the inheritance of his children, the twelve sons of Yaakov did the children of Yisrael bury, each man in the possession of his children.
39 And these are the names of the cities wherein they buried the twelve sons of Yaakov, whom the children of Yisrael had brought up from Mitzrayim.
40 And they buried Reuven and Gad on this side Yarden, in Romia, which Moshe had given to their children.
41 And Shimeon and Levi they buried in the city Mauda, which he had given to the children of Shimeon, and the suburb of the city was for the children of Levi.
42 And Yahudah they buried in the city of Binyamin opposite Beth Lechem.
43 And the bones of Yissacher and Zevulun they buried in Tzidon, in the portion that fell to their children.
44 And Dan was buried in the city of his children in Eshtael, and Naphtali and Asher they buried in Kadesh-Naphtali, each man in his place that he had given to his children.
45 And the bones of Yoseph they buried in Shechem, in the part of the field which Yaakov had purchased from Chamor, and which became to Yoseph for an inheritance.
46 And they buried Binyamin in Yahrushalayim opposite the Yevusite, which was given to the children of Binyamin; the children of Yisrael buried their ahvot each man in the city of his children.
47 And at the end of two years, Yahoshua the son of Nun died, one hundred and ten years old, and the time that Yahoshua judged Yisrael was twenty-eight years, and Yisrael served YHUH all the days of his life.
48 And the other affairs of Yahoshua and his battles and his reproofs with which he reproved Yisrael, and all which he had commanded them, and the names of the cities which the children of Yisrael possessed in his days, behold they are written in the Scroll of the words of Yahoshua to the children of Yisrael, and in the Scroll of the Wars of YHUH, which Moshe and Yahoshua and the children of Yisrael had written.
49 And the children of Yisrael buried Yahoshua in the border of his inheritance, in Timnath-Serach, which was given to him in Mount Ephraim.
50 And Elazer the son of Aharon died in those days, and they buried him in a hill belonging to Phineas his son, which was given him in Mount Ephraim.
1 At that time, after the death of Yahoshua, the children of the Kannaim were still in the land, and the Yisraelites resolved to drive them out.
2 And the children of Yisrael asked of YHUH, saying, Who shall first go up for us to the Kannaim to fight against them? And YHUH said, Yahudah shall go up.
3 And the children of Yahudah said to Shimeon, Go up with us into our lot, and we will fight against the Kannaim and we likewise will go up with you, in your lot, so the children of Shimeon went with the children of Yahudah.
4 And the children of Yahudah went up and fought against the Kannaim, so YHUH
delivered the Kannaim into the hands of the children of Yahudah, and they smote them in Bezek, ten thousand men.
5 And they fought with Adoni-Bezek in Bezek, and he fled from before them, and they pursued him and caught him, and they took hold of him and cut off his thumbs and great toes.
6 And Adoni-Bezek said, Seventy melechim having their thumbs and great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table, as I have done, so YHUH has requited me, and they brought him to Yahrushalayim and he died there.
7 And the children of Shimeon went with the children of Yahudah, and they smote the Kannaim with the edge of the sword.
8 And YHUH was with the children of Yahudah, and they possessed the mountain, and the children of Yoseph went up to Bethel, the same is Luz, and YHUH was with them.
9 And the children of Yoseph spied out Bethel, and the watchmen saw a man going forth from the city, and they caught him and said to him, Show us now the entrance of the city and we will show chesed to you.
10 And that man showed them the entrance of the city, and the children of Yoseph came and smote the City with the edge of the sword.
11 And the man with his family they sent away, and he went to the Hittites and he built a city, and he called the name of it Luz, so all the Yisraelites dwelt in their cities, and the children of Yisrael dwelt in their cities, and the children of Yisrael served YHUH all the days of Yahoshua, and all the days of the zachanim, who had lengthened their days after Yahoshua, and saw the great work of YHUH, which He had performed for Yisrael.
12 And the zachanim judged Yisrael after the death of Yahoshua for seventeen years.
13 And all the zachanim also fought the battles of Yisrael against the Kannaim and YHUH drove the Kannaim from before the children of Yisrael, in order to place the Yisraelites in their land.
14 And he accomplished all the words that he had spoken to Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov, and the oath that he had sworn, to give to them and to their children, the land of the Kannaim.
15 And YHUH gave to the children of Yisrael the whole land of Kanaan, as He had sworn to their ancestors, and YHUH gave them rest from those around them, and the children of Yisrael dwelt securely in their cities.
16 Barchu-et YHUH le-olam-va-ed, amein, v-amein.
17 Strengthen yourselves, and let the hearts of all you that trust in YHUH be of tov courage. X
Jasher 76:3 This may not be mentioned in Torah because Moshe did want to exalt himself as a king. So Torah skips these events, and has Moshe going straight from Egypt to Midian.
Jasher 77:40 A startling revelation, that makes perfect sense.
Jasher 77:51 This history of the rod of YHUH may seem insignificant; BUT it goes a long way in proving that YHUH had a single assembly or family of people from the foundation of the world until this present hour. These passages alone prove the myth and falsehoods of dispensationalism, since theologians teach that from Adam to Moses were at least a few “different dispensations.” These verses clearly trace Yisrael back to the Garden and if we fast-forward it till today, Yisrael includes all believers in 2004 and beyond (Galatians 6:16).
Jasher 79:27 Second Timothy 3:8.
Jasher 79:43 Just like modern religion. Ironically, in their records/translations/ they have all the wrong names, but the one true Name can never seem to be found.
Jasher 79:44 The crime of religion and paganism.
Jasher 81:38 One for each of the 12 tribes of Yisrael.
Jasher 81:40 This seems at first glance to contradict scripture, but a closer look in Exodus 14 and 15 show that all of Pharaoh’s army was drown. Nowhere does it say that Pharaoh himself was drown, which would make the Book of Yashar and the Torah in agreement.
Jasher 82:6 An obvious redaction by the rabbis, as we know Shavuot is Month 3 Day 15 not day 6.
Jasher 88:64 36 hours?
Jasher 88:65 Joshua 10:13.
Jasher 90:29 Brittan?
Jasher 90:48 This is a strong hint that Joshua wrote Sefer Yahshar, since it is mentioned for the first time in Joshua 10:13 by Joshua, and here that Joshua and Moses had authored other contemporary scrolls such as the Scroll of The Wars.
