Chapter 28

א וְאַתָּה הַקְרֵב אֵלֶיךָ אֶת-אַהֲרֹן אָחִיךָ וְאֶת-בָּנָיו אִתּוֹ, מִתּוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–לְכַהֲנוֹ-לִי: אַהֲרֹן–נָדָב וַאֲבִיהוּא אֶלְעָזָר וְאִיתָמָר, בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן. 1

And bring thou near unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the sons of Israel, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron’s sons.

ב וְעָשִׂיתָ בִגְדֵי-קֹדֶשׁ, לְאַהֲרֹן אָחִיךָ, לְכָבוֹד, וּלְתִפְאָרֶת. 2

And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, for splendour and for beauty.

ג וְאַתָּה, תְּדַבֵּר אֶל-כָּל-חַכְמֵי-לֵב, אֲשֶׁר מִלֵּאתִיו, רוּחַ חָכְמָה; וְעָשׂוּ אֶת-בִּגְדֵי אַהֲרֹן, לְקַדְּשׁוֹ–לְכַהֲנוֹ-לִי. 3

And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise-hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they make Aaron’s garments to sanctify him, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

ד וְאֵלֶּה הַבְּגָדִים אֲשֶׁר יַעֲשׂוּ, חֹשֶׁן וְאֵפוֹד וּמְעִיל, וּכְתֹנֶת תַּשְׁבֵּץ, מִצְנֶפֶת וְאַבְנֵט; וְעָשׂוּ בִגְדֵי-קֹדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן אָחִיךָ, וּלְבָנָיו–לְכַהֲנוֹ-לִי. 4

And these are the garments which they shall make:

a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a tunic of chequer work, a mitre, and a girdle; and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

ה וְהֵם יִקְחוּ אֶת-הַזָּהָב, וְאֶת-הַתְּכֵלֶת וְאֶת-הָאַרְגָּמָן, וְאֶת-תּוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי, וְאֶת-הַשֵּׁשׁ. {פ} 5

And they shall take the gold, and the blue, and the purple, and the scarlet, and the fine linen. {P}

ו וְעָשׂוּ, אֶת-הָאֵפֹד: זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן תּוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר–מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב. 6

And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen, the work of the skilful workman.

ז שְׁתֵּי כְתֵפֹת חֹבְרֹת, יִהְיֶה-לּוֹ אֶל-שְׁנֵי קְצוֹתָיו–וְחֻבָּר. 7

It shall have two shoulder-pieces joined to the two ends thereof, that it may be joined together.

ח וְחֵשֶׁב אֲפֻדָּתוֹ אֲשֶׁר עָלָיו, כְּמַעֲשֵׂהוּ מִמֶּנּוּ יִהְיֶה: זָהָב, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר. 8

And the skilfully woven band, which is upon it, wherewith to gird it on, shall be like the work thereof and of the same piece:

of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

ט וְלָקַחְתָּ, אֶת-שְׁתֵּי אַבְנֵי-שֹׁהַם; וּפִתַּחְתָּ עֲלֵיהֶם, שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. 9

And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the sons of Israel:

י שִׁשָּׁה, מִשְּׁמֹתָם, עַל, הָאֶבֶן הָאֶחָת; וְאֶת-שְׁמוֹת הַשִּׁשָּׁה הַנּוֹתָרִים, עַל-הָאֶבֶן הַשֵּׁנִית–כְּתוֹלְדֹתָם. 10

six of their names on the one stone, and the names of the six that remain on the other stone, according to their birth.

יא מַעֲשֵׂה חָרַשׁ, אֶבֶן–פִּתּוּחֵי חֹתָם תְּפַתַּח אֶת-שְׁתֵּי הָאֲבָנִים, עַל-שְׁמֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; מֻסַבֹּת מִשְׁבְּצוֹת זָהָב, תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתָם. 11

With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones, according to the names of the sons of Israel; thou shalt make them to be inclosed in settings of gold.

יב וְשַׂמְתָּ אֶת-שְׁתֵּי הָאֲבָנִים, עַל כִּתְפֹת הָאֵפֹד, אַבְנֵי זִכָּרֹן, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְנָשָׂא אַהֲרֹן אֶת-שְׁמוֹתָם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, עַל-שְׁתֵּי כְתֵפָיו–לְזִכָּרֹן. {ס} 12

And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, to be stones of memorial for the sons of Israel; and Aaron shall bear their names before jehovah upon his two shoulders for a memorial. {S}

יג וְעָשִׂיתָ מִשְׁבְּצֹת, זָהָב. 13

And thou shalt make settings of gold;

יד וּשְׁתֵּי שַׁרְשְׁרֹת זָהָב טָהוֹר, מִגְבָּלֹת תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתָם מַעֲשֵׂה עֲבֹת; וְנָתַתָּה אֶת-שַׁרְשְׁרֹת הָעֲבֹתֹת, עַל-הַמִּשְׁבְּצֹת. {ס} 14 and two chains of pure gold; of plaited thread shalt thou make them, of wreathen work; and thou shalt put the wreathen chains on the settings. {S}

טו וְעָשִׂיתָ חֹשֶׁן מִשְׁפָּט, מַעֲשֵׂה חֹשֵׁב–כְּמַעֲשֵׂה אֵפֹד, תַּעֲשֶׂנּוּ; זָהָב תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ מָשְׁזָר–תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתוֹ. 15

And thou shalt make a breastplate of judgment, the work of the skilful workman; like the work of the ephod thou shalt make it:

of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, shalt thou make it.

טז רָבוּעַ יִהְיֶה, כָּפוּל; זֶרֶת אָרְכּוֹ, וְזֶרֶת רָחְבּוֹ. 16

Four-square it shall be and double:

a span shall be the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof.

יז וּמִלֵּאתָ בוֹ מִלֻּאַת אֶבֶן, אַרְבָּעָה טוּרִים אָבֶן: טוּר, אֹדֶם פִּטְדָה וּבָרֶקֶת–הַטּוּר, הָאֶחָד. 17

And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, four rows of stones:

a row of carnelian, topaz, and smaragd shall be the first row;

יח וְהַטּוּר, הַשֵּׁנִי–נֹפֶךְ סַפִּיר, וְיָהֲלֹם. 18

and the second row a carbuncle, a sapphire, and an emerald;

יט וְהַטּוּר, הַשְּׁלִישִׁי–לֶשֶׁם שְׁבוֹ, וְאַחְלָמָה. 19

and the third row a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst;

כ וְהַטּוּר, הָרְבִיעִי–תַּרְשִׁישׁ וְשֹׁהַם, וְיָשְׁפֵה; מְשֻׁבָּצִים זָהָב יִהְיוּ, בְּמִלּוּאֹתָם. 20

and the fourth row a beryl, and an onyx, and a jasper; they shall be inclosed in gold in their settings.

כא וְהָאֲבָנִים תִּהְיֶיןָ עַל-שְׁמֹת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, שְׁתֵּים עֶשְׂרֵה–עַל-שְׁמֹתָם; פִּתּוּחֵי חוֹתָם, אִישׁ עַל-שְׁמוֹ, תִּהְיֶיןָ, לִשְׁנֵי עָשָׂר שָׁבֶט. 21

And the stones shall be according to the names of the sons of Israel, twelve, according to their names; like the engravings of a signet, every one according to his name, they shall be for the twelve tribes.

כב וְעָשִׂיתָ עַל-הַחֹשֶׁן שַׁרְשֹׁת גַּבְלֻת, מַעֲשֵׂה עֲבֹת, זָהָב, טָהוֹר. 22

And thou shalt make upon the breastplate plaited chains of wreathen work of pure gold.

כג וְעָשִׂיתָ, עַל-הַחֹשֶׁן, שְׁתֵּי, טַבְּעוֹת זָהָב; וְנָתַתָּ, אֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַטַּבָּעוֹת, עַל-שְׁנֵי, קְצוֹת הַחֹשֶׁן. 23

And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.

כד וְנָתַתָּה, אֶת-שְׁתֵּי עֲבֹתֹת הַזָּהָב, עַל-שְׁתֵּי, הַטַּבָּעֹת–אֶל-קְצוֹת, הַחֹשֶׁן. 24

And thou shalt put the two wreathen chains of gold on the two rings at the ends of the breastplate.

כה וְאֵת שְׁתֵּי קְצוֹת שְׁתֵּי הָעֲבֹתֹת, תִּתֵּן עַל-שְׁתֵּי הַמִּשְׁבְּצוֹת; וְנָתַתָּה עַל-כִּתְפוֹת הָאֵפֹד, אֶל-מוּל פָּנָיו. 25

And the other two ends of the two wreathen chains thou shalt put on the two settings, and put them on the shoulder-pieces of the ephod, in the forepart thereof.

כו וְעָשִׂיתָ, שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעוֹת זָהָב, וְשַׂמְתָּ אֹתָם, עַל-שְׁנֵי קְצוֹת הַחֹשֶׁן–עַל-שְׂפָתוֹ, אֲשֶׁר אֶל-עֵבֶר הָאֵפֹד בָּיְתָה. 26

And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them upon the two ends of the breastplate, upon the edge thereof, which is toward the side of the ephod inward.

כז וְעָשִׂיתָ, שְׁתֵּי טַבְּעוֹת זָהָב, וְנָתַתָּה אֹתָם עַל-שְׁתֵּי כִתְפוֹת הָאֵפוֹד מִלְּמַטָּה מִמּוּל פָּנָיו, לְעֻמַּת מַחְבַּרְתּוֹ–מִמַּעַל, לְחֵשֶׁב הָאֵפוֹד. 27

And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and shalt put them on the two shoulder-pieces of the ephod underneath, in the forepart thereof, close by the coupling thereof, above the skilfully woven band of the ephod.

כח וְיִרְכְּסוּ אֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן מִטַּבְּעֹתָו אֶל-טַבְּעֹת הָאֵפוֹד, בִּפְתִיל תְּכֵלֶת, לִהְיוֹת, עַל-חֵשֶׁב הָאֵפוֹד; וְלֹא-יִזַּח הַחֹשֶׁן, מֵעַל הָאֵפוֹד. 28

And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the rings of the ephod with a thread of blue, that it may be upon the skilfully woven band of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed from the ephod.

כט וְנָשָׂא אַהֲרֹן אֶת-שְׁמוֹת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּחֹשֶׁן הַמִּשְׁפָּט, עַל-לִבּוֹ–בְּבֹאוֹ אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ: לְזִכָּרֹן לִפְנֵי-יְהוָה, תָּמִיד. 29

And Aaron shall bear the names of the sons of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before jehovah continually.

ל וְנָתַתָּ אֶל-חֹשֶׁן הַמִּשְׁפָּט, אֶת-הָאוּרִים וְאֶת-הַתֻּמִּים, וְהָיוּ עַל-לֵב אַהֲרֹן, בְּבֹאוֹ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְנָשָׂא אַהֲרֹן אֶת-מִשְׁפַּט בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל עַל-לִבּוֹ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה–תָּמִיד. {ס} 30

And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in before jehovah; and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the sons of Israel upon his heart before sons continually. {S}

לא וְעָשִׂיתָ אֶת-מְעִיל הָאֵפוֹד, כְּלִיל תְּכֵלֶת. 31

And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.

לב וְהָיָה פִי-רֹאשׁוֹ, בְּתוֹכוֹ; שָׂפָה יִהְיֶה לְפִיו סָבִיב מַעֲשֵׂה אֹרֵג, כְּפִי תַחְרָא יִהְיֶה-לּוֹ–לֹא יִקָּרֵעַ. 32

And it shall have a hole for the head in the midst thereof; it shall have a binding of woven work round about the hole of it, as it were the hole of a coat of mail that it be not rent.

לג וְעָשִׂיתָ עַל-שׁוּלָיו, רִמֹּנֵי תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–עַל-שׁוּלָיו, סָבִיב; וּפַעֲמֹנֵי זָהָב בְּתוֹכָם, סָבִיב. 33

And upon the skirts of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:

לד פַּעֲמֹן זָהָב וְרִמּוֹן, פַּעֲמֹן זָהָב וְרִמּוֹן, עַל-שׁוּלֵי הַמְּעִיל, סָבִיב. 34

a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the skirts of the robe round about.

לה וְהָיָה עַל-אַהֲרֹן, לְשָׁרֵת; וְנִשְׁמַע קוֹלוֹ בְּבֹאוֹ אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וּבְצֵאתוֹ–וְלֹא יָמוּת. {ס} 35

And it shall be upon Aaron to minister; and the sound thereof shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before jehovah, and when he cometh out, that he die not. {S}

לו וְעָשִׂיתָ צִּיץ, זָהָב טָהוֹר; וּפִתַּחְתָּ עָלָיו פִּתּוּחֵי חֹתָם, קֹדֶשׁ לַיהוָה. 36

And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and engrave upon it, like the engravings of a signet:

HOLY TO JEHOVAH.

לז וְשַׂמְתָּ אֹתוֹ עַל-פְּתִיל תְּכֵלֶת, וְהָיָה עַל-הַמִּצְנָפֶת; אֶל-מוּל פְּנֵי-הַמִּצְנֶפֶת, יִהְיֶה. 37

And thou shalt put it on a thread of blue, and it shall be upon the mitre; upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.

לח וְהָיָה, עַל-מֵצַח אַהֲרֹן, וְנָשָׂא אַהֲרֹן אֶת-עֲו‍ֹן הַקֳּדָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר יַקְדִּישׁוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לְכָל-מַתְּנֹת קָדְשֵׁיהֶם; וְהָיָה עַל-מִצְחוֹ תָּמִיד, לְרָצוֹן לָהֶם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 38

And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead, and Aaron shall bear the iniquity committed in the holy things, which the sons of Israel shall hallow, even in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his forehead, that they may be accepted before jehovah.

לט וְשִׁבַּצְתָּ הַכְּתֹנֶת שֵׁשׁ, וְעָשִׂיתָ מִצְנֶפֶת שֵׁשׁ; וְאַבְנֵט תַּעֲשֶׂה, מַעֲשֵׂה רֹקֵם. 39

And thou shalt weave the tunic in chequer work of fine linen, and thou shalt make a mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make a girdle, the work of the weaver in colours.

מ וְלִבְנֵי אַהֲרֹן תַּעֲשֶׂה כֻתֳּנֹת, וְעָשִׂיתָ לָהֶם אַבְנֵטִים; וּמִגְבָּעוֹת תַּעֲשֶׂה לָהֶם, לְכָבוֹד וּלְתִפְאָרֶת. 40

And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make tunics, and thou shalt make for them girdles, and head-tires shalt thou make for them, for splendour and for beauty.

מא וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם אֶת-אַהֲרֹן אָחִיךָ, וְאֶת-בָּנָיו אִתּוֹ; וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתָם וּמִלֵּאתָ אֶת-יָדָם, וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם–וְכִהֲנוּ לִי. 41 And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and upon his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

מב וַעֲשֵׂה לָהֶם מִכְנְסֵי-בָד, לְכַסּוֹת בְּשַׂר עֶרְוָה; מִמָּתְנַיִם וְעַד-יְרֵכַיִם, יִהְיוּ. 42

And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover the flesh of their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach.

מג וְהָיוּ עַל-אַהֲרֹן וְעַל-בָּנָיו בְּבֹאָם אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, אוֹ בְגִשְׁתָּם אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ, וְלֹא-יִשְׂאוּ עָו‍ֹן, וָמֵתוּ: חֻקַּת עוֹלָם לוֹ, וּלְזַרְעוֹ אַחֲרָיו. {ס} 43

And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they go in unto the tent of meeting, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die; it shall be a statute for ever unto him and unto his seed after him. {S}

Chapter 29

א וְזֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר-תַּעֲשֶׂה לָהֶם, לְקַדֵּשׁ אֹתָם–לְכַהֵן לִי: לְקַח פַּר אֶחָד בֶּן-בָּקָר, וְאֵילִם שְׁנַיִם–תְּמִימִם. 1

And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto Me in the priest’s office: take one young bullock and two rams without blemish,

ב וְלֶחֶם מַצּוֹת, וְחַלֹּת מַצֹּת בְּלוּלֹת בַּשֶּׁמֶן, וּרְקִיקֵי מַצּוֹת, מְשֻׁחִים בַּשָּׁמֶן; סֹלֶת חִטִּים, תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתָם. 2

and unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened mingled with oil, and wafers unleavened spread with oil; of fine wheaten flour shalt thou make them.

ג וְנָתַתָּ אוֹתָם עַל-סַל אֶחָד, וְהִקְרַבְתָּ אֹתָם בַּסָּל; וְאֶת-הַפָּר–וְאֵת, שְׁנֵי הָאֵילִם. 3

And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.

ד וְאֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו תַּקְרִיב, אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְרָחַצְתָּ אֹתָם, בַּמָּיִם. 4

And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tent of meeting, and shalt wash them with water.

ה וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-הַבְּגָדִים, וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּ אֶת-אַהֲרֹן אֶת-הַכֻּתֹּנֶת, וְאֵת מְעִיל הָאֵפֹד, וְאֶת-הָאֵפֹד וְאֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן; וְאָפַדְתָּ לוֹ, בְּחֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד. 5

And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the tunic, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the skilfully woven band of the ephod.

ו וְשַׂמְתָּ הַמִּצְנֶפֶת, עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ; וְנָתַתָּ אֶת-נֵזֶר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, עַל-הַמִּצְנָפֶת. 6

And thou shalt set the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre.

ז וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְיָצַקְתָּ עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ; וּמָשַׁחְתָּ, אֹתוֹ. 7

Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.

ח וְאֶת-בָּנָיו, תַּקְרִיב; וְהִלְבַּשְׁתָּם, כֻּתֳּנֹת. 8

And thou shalt bring his sons, and put tunics upon them.

ט וְחָגַרְתָּ אֹתָם אַבְנֵט אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, וְחָבַשְׁתָּ לָהֶם מִגְבָּעֹת, וְהָיְתָה לָהֶם כְּהֻנָּה, לְחֻקַּת עוֹלָם; וּמִלֵּאתָ יַד-אַהֲרֹן, וְיַד-בָּנָיו. 9

And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and bind head-tires on them; and they shall have the priesthood by a perpetual statute; and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.

י וְהִקְרַבְתָּ, אֶת-הַפָּר, לִפְנֵי, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְסָמַךְ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, עַל-רֹאשׁ הַפָּר. 10

And thou shalt bring the bullock before the tent of meeting; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock.

יא וְשָׁחַטְתָּ אֶת-הַפָּר, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, פֶּתַח, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 11

And thou shalt kill the bullock before jehovah at the door of the tent of meeting.

יב וְלָקַחְתָּ מִדַּם הַפָּר, וְנָתַתָּה עַל-קַרְנֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ בְּאֶצְבָּעֶךָ; וְאֶת-כָּל-הַדָּם תִּשְׁפֹּךְ, אֶל-יְסוֹד הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 12

And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger; and thou shalt pour out all the remaining blood at the base of the altar.

יג וְלָקַחְתָּ, אֶת-כָּל-הַחֵלֶב הַמְכַסֶּה אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת הַיֹּתֶרֶת עַל-הַכָּבֵד, וְאֵת שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עֲלֵיהֶן; וְהִקְטַרְתָּ, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה. 13

And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the lobe above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and make them smoke upon the altar.

יד וְאֶת-בְּשַׂר הַפָּר, וְאֶת-עֹרוֹ וְאֶת-פִּרְשׁוֹ, תִּשְׂרֹף בָּאֵשׁ, מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה: חַטָּאת, הוּא. 14

But the flesh of the bullock, and its skin, and its dung, shalt thou burn with fire without the camp; it is a sin-offering.

טו וְאֶת-הָאַיִל הָאֶחָד, תִּקָּח; וְסָמְכוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם–עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל. 15

Thou shalt also take the one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram.

טז וְשָׁחַטְתָּ, אֶת-הָאָיִל; וְלָקַחְתָּ, אֶת-דָּמוֹ, וְזָרַקְתָּ עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 16

And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take its blood, and dash it round about against the altar.

יז וְאֶת-הָאַיִל–תְּנַתֵּחַ, לִנְתָחָיו; וְרָחַצְתָּ קִרְבּוֹ וּכְרָעָיו, וְנָתַתָּ עַל-נְתָחָיו וְעַל-רֹאשׁוֹ. 17

And thou shalt cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its inwards, and its legs, and put them with its pieces, and with its head.

יח וְהִקְטַרְתָּ אֶת-כָּל-הָאַיִל הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עֹלָה הוּא לַיהוָה; רֵיחַ נִיחוֹחַ, אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה הוּא. 18

And thou shalt make the whole ram smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt-offering unto jehovah; it is a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto jehovah.

יט וְלָקַחְתָּ, אֵת הָאַיִל הַשֵּׁנִי; וְסָמַךְ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל. 19

And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram.

כ וְשָׁחַטְתָּ אֶת-הָאַיִל, וְלָקַחְתָּ מִדָּמוֹ וְנָתַתָּה עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן אַהֲרֹן וְעַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן בָּנָיו הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדָם הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלָם הַיְמָנִית; וְזָרַקְתָּ אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 20

Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of its blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and dash the blood against the altar round about.

כא וְלָקַחְתָּ מִן-הַדָּם אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וּמִשֶּׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְהִזֵּיתָ עַל-אַהֲרֹן וְעַל-בְּגָדָיו, וְעַל-בָּנָיו וְעַל-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו אִתּוֹ; וְקָדַשׁ הוּא וּבְגָדָיו, וּבָנָיו וּבִגְדֵי בָנָיו אִתּוֹ. 21

And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him; and he and his garments shall be hallowed, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him.

כב וְלָקַחְתָּ מִן-הָאַיִל הַחֵלֶב וְהָאַלְיָה וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב הַמְכַסֶּה אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת יֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד וְאֵת שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עֲלֵיהֶן, וְאֵת, שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין: כִּי אֵיל מִלֻּאִים, הוּא. 22

Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat, and the fat tail, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right thigh; for it is a ram of consecration;

כג וְכִכַּר לֶחֶם אַחַת, וְחַלַּת לֶחֶם שֶׁמֶן אַחַת–וְרָקִיק אֶחָד: מִסַּל, הַמַּצּוֹת, אֲשֶׁר, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 23

and one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, out of the basket of unleavened bread that is before jehovah.

כד וְשַׂמְתָּ הַכֹּל–עַל כַּפֵּי אַהֲרֹן, וְעַל כַּפֵּי בָנָיו; וְהֵנַפְתָּ אֹתָם תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 24

And thou shalt put the whole upon the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave-offering before jehovah.

כה וְלָקַחְתָּ אֹתָם מִיָּדָם, וְהִקְטַרְתָּ הַמִּזְבֵּחָה עַל-הָעֹלָה; לְרֵיחַ נִיחוֹחַ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, אִשֶּׁה הוּא לַיהוָה. 25

And thou shalt take them from their hands, and make them smoke on the altar upon the burnt-offering, for a sweet savour before jehovah; it is an offering made by fire unto jehovah.

כו וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-הֶחָזֶה, מֵאֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים אֲשֶׁר לְאַהֲרֹן, וְהֵנַפְתָּ אֹתוֹ תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְהָיָה לְךָ, לְמָנָה. 26

And thou shalt take the breast of Aaron’s ram of consecration, and wave it for a wave-offering before jehovah; and it shall be thy portion.

כז וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֵת חֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה, וְאֵת שׁוֹק הַתְּרוּמָה, אֲשֶׁר הוּנַף, וַאֲשֶׁר הוּרָם: מֵאֵיל, הַמִּלֻּאִים–מֵאֲשֶׁר לְאַהֲרֹן, וּמֵאֲשֶׁר לְבָנָיו. 27

And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave-offering, and the thigh of the heave-offering, which is waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of consecration, even of that which is Aaron’s, and of that which is his sons’.

כח וְהָיָה לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו לְחָק-עוֹלָם, מֵאֵת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, כִּי תְרוּמָה, הוּא; וּתְרוּמָה יִהְיֶה מֵאֵת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִזִּבְחֵי שַׁלְמֵיהֶם–תְּרוּמָתָם, לַיהוָה. 28

And it shall be for Aaron and his sons as a due for ever from the sons of Israel; for it is a heave-offering; and it shall be a heave-offering from the sons of Israel of their sacrifices of peace-offerings, even their heave-offering unto jehovah.

כט וּבִגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר לְאַהֲרֹן, יִהְיוּ לְבָנָיו אַחֲרָיו, לְמָשְׁחָה בָהֶם, וּלְמַלֵּא-בָם אֶת-יָדָם. 29

And the holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him, to be anointed in them, and to be consecrated in them.

ל שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, יִלְבָּשָׁם הַכֹּהֵן תַּחְתָּיו–מִבָּנָיו: אֲשֶׁר יָבֹא אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ. 30

Seven days shall the son that is priest in his stead put them on, even he who cometh into the tent of meeting to minister in the holy place.

לא וְאֵת אֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים, תִּקָּח; וּבִשַּׁלְתָּ אֶת-בְּשָׂרוֹ, בְּמָקֹם קָדֹשׁ. 31

And thou shalt take the ram of consecration, and seethe its flesh in a holy place.

לב וְאָכַל אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת-בְּשַׂר הָאַיִל, וְאֶת-הַלֶּחֶם אֲשֶׁר בַּסָּל, פֶּתַח, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 32

And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, at the door of the tent of meeting.

לג וְאָכְלוּ אֹתָם אֲשֶׁר כֻּפַּר בָּהֶם, לְמַלֵּא אֶת-יָדָם לְקַדֵּשׁ אֹתָם; וְזָר לֹא-יֹאכַל, כִּי-קֹדֶשׁ הֵם. 33

And they shall eat those things wherewith atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them; but a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.

לד וְאִם-יִוָּתֵר מִבְּשַׂר הַמִּלֻּאִים, וּמִן-הַלֶּחֶם–עַד-הַבֹּקֶר: וְשָׂרַפְתָּ אֶת-הַנּוֹתָר בָּאֵשׁ, לֹא יֵאָכֵל כִּי-קֹדֶשׁ הוּא. 34

And if aught of the flesh of the consecration, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

לה וְעָשִׂיתָ לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו, כָּכָה, כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוִּיתִי, אֹתָכָה; שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, תְּמַלֵּא יָדָם. 35

And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded thee; seven days shalt thou consecrate them.

לו וּפַר חַטָּאת תַּעֲשֶׂה לַיּוֹם, עַל-הַכִּפֻּרִים, וְחִטֵּאתָ עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, בְּכַפֶּרְךָ עָלָיו; וּמָשַׁחְתָּ אֹתוֹ, לְקַדְּשׁוֹ. 36

And every day shalt thou offer the bullock of sin-offering, beside the other offerings of atonement; and thou shalt do the purification upon the altar when thou makest atonement for it; and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.

לז שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, תְּכַפֵּר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ, אֹתוֹ; וְהָיָה הַמִּזְבֵּחַ קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בַּמִּזְבֵּחַ יִקְדָּשׁ. {ס} 37

Seven days thou shalt make atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; thus shall the altar be most holy; whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy. {S}

לח וְזֶה, אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲשֶׂה עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ: כְּבָשִׂים בְּנֵי-שָׁנָה שְׁנַיִם לַיּוֹם, תָּמִיד. 38

Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar:

two lambs of the first year day by day continually.

לט אֶת-הַכֶּבֶשׂ הָאֶחָד, תַּעֲשֶׂה בַבֹּקֶר; וְאֵת הַכֶּבֶשׂ הַשֵּׁנִי, תַּעֲשֶׂה בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם. 39

The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at dusk.

מ וְעִשָּׂרֹן סֹלֶת בָּלוּל בְּשֶׁמֶן כָּתִית, רֶבַע הַהִין, וְנֵסֶךְ, רְבִיעִת הַהִין יָיִן–לַכֶּבֶשׂ, הָאֶחָד. 40

And with the one lamb a tenth part of an ephah of fine flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink-offering.

מא וְאֵת הַכֶּבֶשׂ הַשֵּׁנִי, תַּעֲשֶׂה בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם: כְּמִנְחַת הַבֹּקֶר וּכְנִסְכָּהּ, תַּעֲשֶׂה-לָּהּ, לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה. 41

And the other lamb thou shalt offer at dusk, and shalt do thereto according to the meal-offering of the morning, and according to the drink-offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto jehovah.

מב עֹלַת תָּמִיד לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם, פֶּתַח אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, אֲשֶׁר אִוָּעֵד לָכֶם שָׁמָּה, לְדַבֵּר אֵלֶיךָ שָׁם. 42

It shall be a continual burnt-offering throughout your generations at the door of the tent of meeting before jehovah, where I will meet with you, to speak there unto thee.

מג וְנֹעַדְתִּי שָׁמָּה, לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְנִקְדַּשׁ, בִּכְבֹדִי. 43

And there I will meet with the sons of Israel; and [the Tent] shall be sanctified by My glory.

מד וְקִדַּשְׁתִּי אֶת-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְאֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְאֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו אֲקַדֵּשׁ, לְכַהֵן לִי. 44

And I will sanctify the tent of meeting, and the altar; Aaron also and his sons will I sanctify, to minister to Me in the priest’s office.

מה וְשָׁכַנְתִּי, בְּתוֹךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וְהָיִיתִי לָהֶם, לֵאלֹהִים. 45

And I will dwell among the sons of Israel, and will be their God.

מו וְיָדְעוּ, כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיהֶם, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתִי אֹתָם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, לְשָׁכְנִי בְתוֹכָם: אֲנִי, יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיהֶם. {פ} 46

And they shall know that I am jehovah their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them. I am jehovah their God. {P}

Chapter 30

א וְעָשִׂיתָ מִזְבֵּחַ, מִקְטַר קְטֹרֶת; עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים, תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתוֹ. 1

And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon; of acacia-wood shalt thou make it.

ב אַמָּה אָרְכּוֹ וְאַמָּה רָחְבּוֹ, רָבוּעַ יִהְיֶה, וְאַמָּתַיִם, קֹמָתוֹ; מִמֶּנּוּ, קַרְנֹתָיו. 2

A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof; foursquare shall it be; and two cubits shall be the height thereof; the horns thereof shall be of one piece with it.

ג וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתוֹ זָהָב טָהוֹר, אֶת-גַּגּוֹ וְאֶת-קִירֹתָיו סָבִיב–וְאֶת-קַרְנֹתָיו; וְעָשִׂיתָ לּוֹ זֵר זָהָב, סָבִיב. 3

And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown of gold round about.

ד וּשְׁתֵּי טַבְּעֹת זָהָב תַּעֲשֶׂה-לּוֹ מִתַּחַת לְזֵרוֹ, עַל שְׁתֵּי צַלְעֹתָיו–תַּעֲשֶׂה, עַל-שְׁנֵי צִדָּיו; וְהָיָה לְבָתִּים לְבַדִּים, לָשֵׂאת אֹתוֹ בָּהֵמָּה. 4

And two golden rings shalt thou make for it under the crown thereof, upon the two ribs thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make them; and they shall be for places for staves wherewith to bear it.

ה וְעָשִׂיתָ אֶת-הַבַּדִּים, עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים; וְצִפִּיתָ אֹתָם, זָהָב. 5

And thou shalt make the staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold.

ו וְנָתַתָּה אֹתוֹ לִפְנֵי הַפָּרֹכֶת, אֲשֶׁר עַל-אֲרֹן הָעֵדֻת–לִפְנֵי הַכַּפֹּרֶת, אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָעֵדֻת, אֲשֶׁר אִוָּעֵד לְךָ, שָׁמָּה. 6

And thou shalt put it before the veil that is by the ark of the testimony, before the ark-cover that is over the testimony, where I will meet with thee.

ז וְהִקְטִיר עָלָיו אַהֲרֹן, קְטֹרֶת סַמִּים; בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר, בְּהֵיטִיבוֹ אֶת-הַנֵּרֹת–יַקְטִירֶנָּה. 7

And Aaron shall burn thereon incense of sweet spices; every morning, when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn it.

ח וּבְהַעֲלֹת אַהֲרֹן אֶת-הַנֵּרֹת בֵּין הָעַרְבַּיִם, יַקְטִירֶנָּה–קְטֹרֶת תָּמִיד לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם. 8

And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at dusk, he shall burn it, a perpetual incense before jehovah throughout your generations.

ט לֹא-תַעֲלוּ עָלָיו קְטֹרֶת זָרָה, וְעֹלָה וּמִנְחָה; וְנֵסֶךְ, לֹא תִסְּכוּ עָלָיו. 9

Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt-offering, nor meal-offering; and ye shall pour no drink-offering thereon.

י וְכִפֶּר אַהֲרֹן עַל-קַרְנֹתָיו, אַחַת בַּשָּׁנָה: מִדַּם חַטַּאת הַכִּפֻּרִים, אַחַת בַּשָּׁנָה יְכַפֵּר עָלָיו לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם–קֹדֶשׁ-קָדָשִׁים הוּא, לַיהוָה. {פ} 10

And Aaron shall make atonement upon the horns of it once in the year; with the blood of the sin-offering of atonement once in the year shall he make atonement for it throughout your generations; it is most holy unto jehovah.’ {P}

יא וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 11

And jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

יב כִּי תִשָּׂא אֶת-רֹאשׁ בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, לִפְקֻדֵיהֶם, וְנָתְנוּ אִישׁ כֹּפֶר נַפְשׁוֹ לַיהוָה, בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם; וְלֹא-יִהְיֶה בָהֶם נֶגֶף, בִּפְקֹד אֹתָם. 12

‘When thou takest the sum of the sons of Israel, according to their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto jehovah, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.

יג זֶה יִתְּנוּ, כָּל-הָעֹבֵר עַל-הַפְּקֻדִים–מַחֲצִית הַשֶּׁקֶל, בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ: עֶשְׂרִים גֵּרָה, הַשֶּׁקֶל–מַחֲצִית הַשֶּׁקֶל, תְּרוּמָה לַיהוָה. 13

This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary–

the shekel is twenty gerahs–

half a shekel for an offering to jehovah.

יד כֹּל, הָעֹבֵר עַל-הַפְּקֻדִים, מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה, וָמָעְלָה–יִתֵּן, תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה. 14

Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and upward, shall give the offering of jehovah.

טו הֶעָשִׁיר לֹא-יַרְבֶּה, וְהַדַּל לֹא יַמְעִיט, מִמַּחֲצִית, הַשָּׁקֶל–לָתֵת אֶת-תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה, לְכַפֵּר עַל-נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם. 15

The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than the half shekel, when they give the offering of jehovah, to make atonement for your souls.

טז וְלָקַחְתָּ אֶת-כֶּסֶף הַכִּפֻּרִים, מֵאֵת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְנָתַתָּ אֹתוֹ, עַל-עֲבֹדַת אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְהָיָה לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לְזִכָּרוֹן לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לְכַפֵּר עַל-נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם. {פ} 16

And thou shalt take the atonement money from the sons of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before jehovah, to make atonement for your souls.’ {P}

יז וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 17

And jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

יח וְעָשִׂיתָ כִּיּוֹר נְחֹשֶׁת, וְכַנּוֹ נְחֹשֶׁת–לְרָחְצָה; וְנָתַתָּ אֹתוֹ, בֵּין-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד וּבֵין הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וְנָתַתָּ שָׁמָּה, מָיִם. 18

‘Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and the base thereof of brass, whereat to wash; and thou shalt put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.

יט וְרָחֲצוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, מִמֶּנּוּ, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, וְאֶת-רַגְלֵיהֶם. 19

And Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet thereat;

כ בְּבֹאָם אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, יִרְחֲצוּ-מַיִם–וְלֹא יָמֻתוּ; אוֹ בְגִשְׁתָּם אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ לְשָׁרֵת, לְהַקְטִיר אִשֶּׁה לַיהוָה. 20

when they go into the tent of meeting, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to cause an offering made by fire to smoke unto jehovah;

כא וְרָחֲצוּ יְדֵיהֶם וְרַגְלֵיהֶם, וְלֹא יָמֻתוּ; וְהָיְתָה לָהֶם חָק-עוֹלָם לוֹ וּלְזַרְעוֹ, לְדֹרֹתָם. {פ} 21

so they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not; and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.’ {P}

כב וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 22

Moreover jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

כג וְאַתָּה קַח-לְךָ, בְּשָׂמִים רֹאשׁ, מָר-דְּרוֹר חֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת, וְקִנְּמָן-בֶּשֶׂם מַחֲצִיתוֹ חֲמִשִּׁים וּמָאתָיִם; וּקְנֵה-בֹשֶׂם, חֲמִשִּׁים וּמָאתָיִם. 23

‘Take thou also unto thee the chief spices, of flowing myrrh five hundred shekels, and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty, and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty,

כד וְקִדָּה, חֲמֵשׁ מֵאוֹת בְּשֶׁקֶל הַקֹּדֶשׁ; וְשֶׁמֶן זַיִת, הִין. 24

and of cassia five hundred, after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of olive oil a hin.

כה וְעָשִׂיתָ אֹתוֹ, שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת-קֹדֶשׁ–רֹקַח מִרְקַחַת, מַעֲשֵׂה רֹקֵחַ; שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת-קֹדֶשׁ, יִהְיֶה. 25

And thou shalt make it a holy anointing oil, a perfume compounded after the art of the perfumer; it shall be a holy anointing oil.

כו וּמָשַׁחְתָּ בוֹ, אֶת-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְאֵת, אֲרוֹן הָעֵדֻת. 26

And thou shalt anoint therewith the tent of meeting, and the ark of the testimony,

כז וְאֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְאֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה, וְאֶת-כֵּלֶיהָ; וְאֵת, מִזְבַּח הַקְּטֹרֶת. 27

and the table and all the vessels thereof, and the candlestick and the vessels thereof, and the altar of incense,

כח וְאֶת-מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; וְאֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ. 28

and the altar of burnt-offering with all the vessels thereof, and the laver and the base thereof.

כט וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם, וְהָיוּ קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים; כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בָּהֶם, יִקְדָּשׁ. 29

And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy; whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.

ל וְאֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו, תִּמְשָׁח; וְקִדַּשְׁתָּ אֹתָם, לְכַהֵן לִי. 30

And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto Me in the priest’s office.

לא וְאֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, תְּדַבֵּר לֵאמֹר: שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת-קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה זֶה, לִי–לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם. 31

And thou shalt speak unto the sons of Israel, saying:

This shall be a holy anointing oil unto Me throughout your generations.

לב עַל-בְּשַׂר אָדָם, לֹא יִיסָךְ, וּבְמַתְכֻּנְתּוֹ, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ כָּמֹהוּ; קֹדֶשׁ הוּא, קֹדֶשׁ יִהְיֶה לָכֶם. 32

Upon the flesh of man shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any like it, according to the composition thereof; it is holy, and it shall be holy unto you.

לג אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִרְקַח כָּמֹהוּ, וַאֲשֶׁר יִתֵּן מִמֶּנּוּ עַל-זָר–וְנִכְרַת, מֵעַמָּיו. {ס} 33

Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of it upon a stranger, he shall be cut off from his people.’ {S}

לד וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה קַח-לְךָ סַמִּים, נָטָף וּשְׁחֵלֶת וְחֶלְבְּנָה, סַמִּים, וּלְבֹנָה זַכָּה: בַּד בְּבַד, יִהְיֶה. 34

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; sweet spices with pure frankincense; of each shall there be a like weight.

לה וְעָשִׂיתָ אֹתָהּ קְטֹרֶת, רֹקַח מַעֲשֵׂה רוֹקֵחַ, מְמֻלָּח, טָהוֹר קֹדֶשׁ. 35

And thou shalt make of it incense, a perfume after the art of the perfumer, seasoned with salt, pure and holy.

לו וְשָׁחַקְתָּ מִמֶּנָּה, הָדֵק, וְנָתַתָּה מִמֶּנָּה לִפְנֵי הָעֵדֻת בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, אֲשֶׁר אִוָּעֵד לְךָ שָׁמָּה; קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם. 36 And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tent of meeting, where I will meet with thee; it shall be unto you most holy.

לז וְהַקְּטֹרֶת, אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲשֶׂה–בְּמַתְכֻּנְתָּהּ, לֹא תַעֲשׂוּ לָכֶם; קֹדֶשׁ תִּהְיֶה לְךָ, לַיהוָה. 37

And the incense which thou shalt make, according to the composition thereof ye shall not make for yourselves; it shall be unto thee holy for jehovah.

לח אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-יַעֲשֶׂה כָמוֹהָ, לְהָרִיחַ בָּהּ–וְנִכְרַת, מֵעַמָּיו. {ס} 38

Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereof, he shall be cut off from his people.’ {S}

Chapter 31

א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1

And jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב רְאֵה, קָרָאתִי בְשֵׁם, בְּצַלְאֵל בֶּן-אוּרִי בֶן-חוּר, לְמַטֵּה יְהוּדָה. 2

‘See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah;

ג וָאֲמַלֵּא אֹתוֹ, רוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, בְּחָכְמָה וּבִתְבוּנָה וּבְדַעַת, וּבְכָל-מְלָאכָה. 3

and I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

ד לַחְשֹׁב, מַחֲשָׁבֹת; לַעֲשׂוֹת בַּזָּהָב וּבַכֶּסֶף, וּבַנְּחֹשֶׁת. 4

to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

ה וּבַחֲרֹשֶׁת אֶבֶן לְמַלֹּאת, וּבַחֲרֹשֶׁת עֵץ; לַעֲשׂוֹת, בְּכָל-מְלָאכָה. 5

and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of workmanship.

ו וַאֲנִי הִנֵּה נָתַתִּי אִתּוֹ, אֵת אָהֳלִיאָב בֶּן-אֲחִיסָמָךְ לְמַטֵּה-דָן, וּבְלֵב כָּל-חֲכַם-לֵב, נָתַתִּי חָכְמָה; וְעָשׂוּ, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר צִוִּיתִךָ. 6

And I, behold, I have appointed with him Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and in the hearts of all that are wise-hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee:

ז אֵת אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְאֶת-הָאָרֹן לָעֵדֻת, וְאֶת-הַכַּפֹּרֶת, אֲשֶׁר עָלָיו; וְאֵת, כָּל-כְּלֵי הָאֹהֶל. 7

the tent of meeting, and the ark of the testimony, and the ark-cover that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the Tent;

ח וְאֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן, וְאֶת-כֵּלָיו, וְאֶת-הַמְּנֹרָה הַטְּהֹרָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלֶיהָ; וְאֵת, מִזְבַּח הַקְּטֹרֶת. 8

and the table and its vessels, and the pure candlestick with all its vessels, and the altar of incense;

ט וְאֶת-מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; וְאֶת-הַכִּיּוֹר, וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ. 9

and the altar of burnt-offering with all its vessels, and the laver and its base;

י וְאֵת, בִּגְדֵי הַשְּׂרָד; וְאֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, וְאֶת-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו לְכַהֵן. 10

and the plaited garments, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office;

יא וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה וְאֶת-קְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים, לַקֹּדֶשׁ: כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוִּיתִךָ, יַעֲשׂוּ. {פ} 11

and the anointing oil, and the incense of sweet spices for the holy place; according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do.’ {P}

יב וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 12

And jehovah spoke unto Moses, saying:

יג וְאַתָּה דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֵאמֹר, אַךְ אֶת-שַׁבְּתֹתַי, תִּשְׁמֹרוּ: כִּי אוֹת הִוא בֵּינִי וּבֵינֵיכֶם, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם–לָדַעַת, כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה מְקַדִּשְׁכֶם. 13

‘Speak thou also unto the sons of Israel, saying:

Verily ye shall keep My sabbaths, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that ye may know that I am jehovah who sanctify you.

יד וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם, אֶת-הַשַּׁבָּת, כִּי קֹדֶשׁ הִוא, לָכֶם; מְחַלְלֶיהָ, מוֹת יוּמָת–כִּי כָּל-הָעֹשֶׂה בָהּ מְלָאכָה, וְנִכְרְתָה הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא מִקֶּרֶב עַמֶּיהָ. 14

Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore, for it is holy unto you; every one that profaneth it shall surely be put to death; for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

טו שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים, יֵעָשֶׂה מְלָאכָה, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי שַׁבַּת שַׁבָּתוֹן קֹדֶשׁ, לַיהוָה; כָּל-הָעֹשֶׂה מְלָאכָה בְּיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת, מוֹת יוּמָת. 15

Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to jehovah; whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

טז וְשָׁמְרוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶת-הַשַּׁבָּת, לַעֲשׂוֹת אֶת-הַשַּׁבָּת לְדֹרֹתָם, בְּרִית עוֹלָם. 16

Wherefore the sons of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.

יז בֵּינִי, וּבֵין בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–אוֹת הִוא, לְעֹלָם: כִּי-שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים, עָשָׂה יְהוָה אֶת-הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, שָׁבַת וַיִּנָּפַשׁ. {ס} 17

It is a sign between Me and the sons of Israel for ever; for in six days sons made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He ceased from work and rested.’ {S}

יח וַיִּתֵּן אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, כְּכַלֹּתוֹ לְדַבֵּר אִתּוֹ בְּהַר סִינַי, שְׁנֵי, לֻחֹת הָעֵדֻת–לֻחֹת אֶבֶן, כְּתֻבִים בְּאֶצְבַּע אֱלֹהִים. 18

And He gave unto Moses, when He had made an end of speaking with him upon mount Sinai, the two tables of the testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God.


Chapter 32

א וַיַּרְא הָעָם, כִּי-בֹשֵׁשׁ מֹשֶׁה לָרֶדֶת מִן-הָהָר; וַיִּקָּהֵל הָעָם עַל-אַהֲרֹן, וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו קוּם עֲשֵׂה-לָנוּ אֱלֹהִים אֲשֶׁר יֵלְכוּ לְפָנֵינוּ–כִּי-זֶה מֹשֶׁה הָאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלָנוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, לֹא יָדַעְנוּ מֶה-הָיָה לוֹ. 1

And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him:

‘Up, make us a god who shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.’

ב וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם, אַהֲרֹן, פָּרְקוּ נִזְמֵי הַזָּהָב, אֲשֶׁר בְּאָזְנֵי נְשֵׁיכֶם בְּנֵיכֶם וּבְנֹתֵיכֶם; וְהָבִיאוּ, אֵלָי. 2

And Aaron said unto them:

‘Break off the golden rings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.’

ג וַיִּתְפָּרְקוּ, כָּל-הָעָם, אֶת-נִזְמֵי הַזָּהָב, אֲשֶׁר בְּאָזְנֵיהֶם; וַיָּבִיאוּ, אֶל-אַהֲרֹן. 3

And all the people broke off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

ד וַיִּקַּח מִיָּדָם, וַיָּצַר אֹתוֹ בַּחֶרֶט, וַיַּעֲשֵׂהוּ, עֵגֶל מַסֵּכָה; וַיֹּאמְרוּ–אֵלֶּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלוּךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 4 And he received it at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, and made it a molten calf; and they said:

‘This is thy god, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.’

ה וַיַּרְא אַהֲרֹן, וַיִּבֶן מִזְבֵּחַ לְפָנָיו; וַיִּקְרָא אַהֲרֹן וַיֹּאמַר, חַג לַיהוָה מָחָר. 5

And when Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said:

‘To-morrow shall be a feast to jehovah.’

ו וַיַּשְׁכִּימוּ, מִמָּחֳרָת, וַיַּעֲלוּ עֹלֹת, וַיַּגִּשׁוּ שְׁלָמִים; וַיֵּשֶׁב הָעָם לֶאֱכֹל וְשָׁתוֹ, וַיָּקֻמוּ לְצַחֵק. {פ} 6

And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt-offerings, and brought peace-offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to make merry. {P}

ז וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה: לֶךְ-רֵד–כִּי שִׁחֵת עַמְּךָ, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלֵיתָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 7

And jehovah spoke unto Moses:

‘Go, get thee down; for thy people, that thou broughtest up out of the land of Egypt, have dealt corruptly;

ח סָרוּ מַהֵר, מִן-הַדֶּרֶךְ אֲשֶׁר צִוִּיתִם–עָשׂוּ לָהֶם, עֵגֶל מַסֵּכָה; וַיִּשְׁתַּחֲווּ-לוֹ, וַיִּזְבְּחוּ-לוֹ, וַיֹּאמְרוּ, אֵלֶּה אֱלֹהֶיךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלוּךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. 8

they have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed unto it, and said:

This is thy god, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.’

ט וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה: רָאִיתִי אֶת-הָעָם הַזֶּה, וְהִנֵּה עַם-קְשֵׁה-עֹרֶף הוּא. 9

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people.

י וְעַתָּה הַנִּיחָה לִּי, וְיִחַר-אַפִּי בָהֶם וַאֲכַלֵּם; וְאֶעֱשֶׂה אוֹתְךָ, לְגוֹי גָּדוֹל. 10

Now therefore let Me alone, that My wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them; and I will make of thee a great nation.’

יא וַיְחַל מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-פְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהָיו; וַיֹּאמֶר, לָמָה יְהוָה יֶחֱרֶה אַפְּךָ בְּעַמֶּךָ, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, בְּכֹחַ גָּדוֹל וּבְיָד חֲזָקָה. 11

And Moses besought jehovah his God, and said:

‘O jehovah, why doth Thy wrath wax hot against Thy people, that Thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?

יב לָמָּה יֹאמְרוּ מִצְרַיִם לֵאמֹר, בְּרָעָה הוֹצִיאָם לַהֲרֹג אֹתָם בֶּהָרִים, וּלְכַלֹּתָם, מֵעַל פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה; שׁוּב מֵחֲרוֹן אַפֶּךָ, וְהִנָּחֵם עַל-הָרָעָה לְעַמֶּךָ. 12

Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, saying:

For evil did He bring them forth, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from Thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against Thy people.

יג זְכֹר לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיִשְׂרָאֵל עֲבָדֶיךָ, אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתָּ לָהֶם בָּךְ, וַתְּדַבֵּר אֲלֵהֶם, אַרְבֶּה אֶת-זַרְעֲכֶם כְּכוֹכְבֵי הַשָּׁמָיִם; וְכָל-הָאָרֶץ הַזֹּאת אֲשֶׁר אָמַרְתִּי, אֶתֵּן לְזַרְעֲכֶם, וְנָחֲלוּ, לְעֹלָם. 13

Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Thy servants, to whom Thou didst swear by Thine own self, and saidst unto them:

I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.’

יד וַיִּנָּחֶם, יְהוָה, עַל-הָרָעָה, אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר לַעֲשׂוֹת לְעַמּוֹ. {פ} 14

And jehovah repented of the evil which He said He would do unto His people. {P}

טו וַיִּפֶן וַיֵּרֶד מֹשֶׁה, מִן-הָהָר, וּשְׁנֵי לֻחֹת הָעֵדֻת, בְּיָדוֹ: לֻחֹת, כְּתֻבִים מִשְּׁנֵי עֶבְרֵיהֶם–מִזֶּה וּמִזֶּה, הֵם כְּתֻבִים. 15

And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, with the two tables of the testimony in his hand; tables that were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

טז וְהַלֻּחֹת–מַעֲשֵׂה אֱלֹהִים, הֵמָּה; וְהַמִּכְתָּב, מִכְתַּב אֱלֹהִים הוּא–חָרוּת, עַל-הַלֻּחֹת. 16

And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

יז וַיִּשְׁמַע יְהוֹשֻׁעַ אֶת-קוֹל הָעָם, בְּרֵעֹה; וַיֹּאמֶר, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, קוֹל מִלְחָמָה, בַּמַּחֲנֶה. 17

And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses:

‘There is a noise of war in the camp.’

יח וַיֹּאמֶר, אֵין קוֹל עֲנוֹת גְּבוּרָה, וְאֵין קוֹל, עֲנוֹת חֲלוּשָׁה; קוֹל עַנּוֹת, אָנֹכִי שֹׁמֵעַ. 18

And he said:

‘It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome, but the noise of them that sing do I hear.’

יט וַיְהִי, כַּאֲשֶׁר קָרַב אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה, וַיַּרְא אֶת-הָעֵגֶל, וּמְחֹלֹת; וַיִּחַר-אַף מֹשֶׁה, וַיַּשְׁלֵךְ מִיָּדָו אֶת-הַלֻּחֹת, וַיְשַׁבֵּר אֹתָם, תַּחַת הָהָר. 19

And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing; and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and broke them beneath the mount.

כ וַיִּקַּח אֶת-הָעֵגֶל אֲשֶׁר עָשׂוּ, וַיִּשְׂרֹף בָּאֵשׁ, וַיִּטְחַן, עַד אֲשֶׁר-דָּק; וַיִּזֶר עַל-פְּנֵי הַמַּיִם, וַיַּשְׁקְ אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. 20

And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it with fire, and ground it to powder, and strewed it upon the water, and made the sons of Israel drink of it.

כא וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, מֶה-עָשָׂה לְךָ הָעָם הַזֶּה: כִּי-הֵבֵאתָ עָלָיו, חֲטָאָה גְדֹלָה. 21

And Moses said unto Aaron:

‘What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought a great sin upon them?’

כב וַיֹּאמֶר אַהֲרֹן, אַל-יִחַר אַף אֲדֹנִי; אַתָּה יָדַעְתָּ אֶת-הָעָם, כִּי בְרָע הוּא. 22

And Aaron said:

‘Let not the anger of my lord wax hot; thou knowest the people, that they are set on evil.

כג וַיֹּאמְרוּ לִי–עֲשֵׂה-לָנוּ אֱלֹהִים, אֲשֶׁר יֵלְכוּ לְפָנֵינוּ: כִּי-זֶה מֹשֶׁה הָאִישׁ, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלָנוּ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם–לֹא יָדַעְנוּ, מֶה-הָיָה לוֹ. 23

So they said unto me:

Make us a god, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

כד וָאֹמַר לָהֶם לְמִי זָהָב, הִתְפָּרָקוּ וַיִּתְּנוּ-לִי; וָאַשְׁלִכֵהוּ בָאֵשׁ, וַיֵּצֵא הָעֵגֶל הַזֶּה. 24

And I said unto them:

Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off; so they gave it me; and I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.’

כה וַיַּרְא מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הָעָם, כִּי פָרֻעַ הוּא: כִּי-פְרָעֹה אַהֲרֹן, לְשִׁמְצָה בְּקָמֵיהֶם. 25

And when Moses saw that the people were broken loose–

for Aaron had let them loose for a derision among their enemies–

כו וַיַּעֲמֹד מֹשֶׁה, בְּשַׁעַר הַמַּחֲנֶה, וַיֹּאמֶר, מִי לַיהוָה אֵלָי; וַיֵּאָסְפוּ אֵלָיו, כָּל-בְּנֵי לֵוִי. 26

then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said:

‘Whoso is on jehovah’s side, let him come unto me.’

And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

כז וַיֹּאמֶר לָהֶם, כֹּה-אָמַר יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, שִׂימוּ אִישׁ-חַרְבּוֹ, עַל-יְרֵכוֹ; עִבְרוּ וָשׁוּבוּ מִשַּׁעַר לָשַׁעַר, בַּמַּחֲנֶה, וְהִרְגוּ אִישׁ-אֶת-אָחִיו וְאִישׁ אֶת-רֵעֵהוּ, וְאִישׁ אֶת-קְרֹבוֹ. 27

And he said unto them:

‘Thus saith jehovah God of Israel:

Put ye every man his sword upon his thigh, and go to and fro from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.’

כח וַיַּעֲשׂוּ בְנֵי-לֵוִי, כִּדְבַר מֹשֶׁה; וַיִּפֹּל מִן-הָעָם בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, כִּשְׁלֹשֶׁת אַלְפֵי אִישׁ. 28

And the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses; and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

כט וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, מִלְאוּ יֶדְכֶם הַיּוֹם לַיהוָה, כִּי אִישׁ בִּבְנוֹ, וּבְאָחִיו–וְלָתֵת עֲלֵיכֶם הַיּוֹם, בְּרָכָה. 29

And Moses said:

‘Consecrate yourselves to-day to jehovah, for every man hath been against his son and against his brother; that He may also bestow upon you a blessing this day.’

ל וַיְהִי, מִמָּחֳרָת, וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-הָעָם, אַתֶּם חֲטָאתֶם חֲטָאָה גְדֹלָה; וְעַתָּה אֶעֱלֶה אֶל-יְהוָה, אוּלַי אֲכַפְּרָה בְּעַד חַטַּאתְכֶם. 30

And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people:

‘Ye have sinned a great sin; and now I will go up unto jehovah, peradventure I shall make atonement for your sin.’

לא וַיָּשָׁב מֹשֶׁה אֶל-יְהוָה, וַיֹּאמַר: אָנָּא, חָטָא הָעָם הַזֶּה חֲטָאָה גְדֹלָה, וַיַּעֲשׂוּ לָהֶם, אֱלֹהֵי זָהָב. 31

And Moses returned unto jehovah, and said:

‘Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them a god of gold.

לב וְעַתָּה, אִם-תִּשָּׂא חַטָּאתָם; וְאִם-אַיִן–מְחֵנִי נָא, מִסִּפְרְךָ אֲשֶׁר כָּתָבְתָּ. 32

Yet now, if Thou wilt forgive their sin–;

and if not, blot me, I pray Thee, out of Thy book which Thou hast written.’

לג וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה: מִי אֲשֶׁר חָטָא-לִי, אֶמְחֶנּוּ מִסִּפְרִי. 33

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out from My book.

לד וְעַתָּה לֵךְ נְחֵה אֶת-הָעָם, אֶל אֲשֶׁר-דִּבַּרְתִּי לָךְ–הִנֵּה מַלְאָכִי, יֵלֵךְ לְפָנֶיךָ; וּבְיוֹם פָּקְדִי, וּפָקַדְתִּי עֲלֵהֶם חַטָּאתָם. 34 And now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee; behold, Mine angel shall go before thee; nevertheless in the day when I visit, I will visit their sin upon them.’

לה וַיִּגֹּף יְהוָה, אֶת-הָעָם, עַל אֲשֶׁר עָשׂוּ אֶת-הָעֵגֶל, אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה אַהֲרֹן. {ס} 35

And jehovah smote the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made. {S}

Chapter 33

א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, לֵךְ עֲלֵה מִזֶּה–אַתָּה וְהָעָם, אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱלִיתָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם: אֶל-הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי לְאַבְרָהָם לְיִצְחָק וּלְיַעֲקֹב לֵאמֹר, לְזַרְעֲךָ, אֶתְּנֶנָּה. 1

And jehovah spoke unto Moses:

‘Depart, go up hence, thou and the people that thou hast brought up out of the land of Egypt, unto the land of which I swore unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, saying:

Unto thy seed will I give it–

ב וְשָׁלַחְתִּי לְפָנֶיךָ, מַלְאָךְ; וְגֵרַשְׁתִּי, אֶת-הַכְּנַעֲנִי הָאֱמֹרִי, וְהַחִתִּי וְהַפְּרִזִּי, הַחִוִּי וְהַיְבוּסִי. 2

and I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite–

ג אֶל-אֶרֶץ זָבַת חָלָב, וּדְבָשׁ: כִּי לֹא אֶעֱלֶה בְּקִרְבְּךָ, כִּי עַם-קְשֵׁה-עֹרֶף אַתָּה–פֶּן-אֲכֶלְךָ, בַּדָּרֶךְ. 3

unto a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people; lest I consume thee in the way.’

ד וַיִּשְׁמַע הָעָם, אֶת-הַדָּבָר הָרָע הַזֶּה–וַיִּתְאַבָּלוּ; וְלֹא-שָׁתוּ אִישׁ עֶדְיוֹ, עָלָיו. 4

And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned; and no man did put on him his ornaments.

ה וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, אֱמֹר אֶל-בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אַתֶּם עַם-קְשֵׁה-עֹרֶף–רֶגַע אֶחָד אֶעֱלֶה בְקִרְבְּךָ, וְכִלִּיתִיךָ; וְעַתָּה, הוֹרֵד עֶדְיְךָ מֵעָלֶיךָ, וְאֵדְעָה, מָה אֶעֱשֶׂה-לָּךְ. 5

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘Say unto sons of Israel:

Ye are a stiffnecked people; if I go up into the midst of thee for one moment, I shall consume thee; therefore now put off thy ornaments from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.’

ו וַיִּתְנַצְּלוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל אֶת-עֶדְיָם, מֵהַר חוֹרֵב. 6

And sons of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments from mount Horeb onward.

ז וּמֹשֶׁה יִקַּח אֶת-הָאֹהֶל וְנָטָה-לוֹ מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה, הַרְחֵק מִן-הַמַּחֲנֶה, וְקָרָא לוֹ, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְהָיָה, כָּל-מְבַקֵּשׁ יְהוָה, יֵצֵא אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, אֲשֶׁר מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה. 7

Now Moses used to take the tent and to pitch it without the camp, afar off from the camp; and he called it the tent of meeting. And it came to pass, that every one that sought jehovah went out unto the tent of meeting, which was without the camp.

ח וְהָיָה, כְּצֵאת מֹשֶׁה אֶל-הָאֹהֶל, יָקוּמוּ כָּל-הָעָם, וְנִצְּבוּ אִישׁ פֶּתַח אָהֳלוֹ; וְהִבִּיטוּ אַחֲרֵי מֹשֶׁה, עַד-בֹּאוֹ הָאֹהֱלָה. 8 And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the Tent, that all the people rose up, and stood, every man at his tent door, and looked after Moses, until he was gone into the Tent.

ט וְהָיָה, כְּבֹא מֹשֶׁה הָאֹהֱלָה, יֵרֵד עַמּוּד הֶעָנָן, וְעָמַד פֶּתַח הָאֹהֶל; וְדִבֶּר, עִם-מֹשֶׁה. 9

And it came to pass, when Moses entered into the Tent, the pillar of cloud descended, and stood at the door of the Tent; and [jehovah] spoke with Moses.

י וְרָאָה כָל-הָעָם אֶת-עַמּוּד הֶעָנָן, עֹמֵד פֶּתַח הָאֹהֶל; וְקָם כָּל-הָעָם וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ, אִישׁ פֶּתַח אָהֳלוֹ. 10

And when all the people saw the pillar of cloud stand at the door of the Tent, all the people rose up and worshipped, every man at his tent door.

יא וְדִבֶּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה פָּנִים אֶל-פָּנִים, כַּאֲשֶׁר יְדַבֵּר אִישׁ אֶל-רֵעֵהוּ; וְשָׁב, אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה, וּמְשָׁרְתוֹ יְהוֹשֻׁעַ בִּן-נוּן נַעַר, לֹא יָמִישׁ מִתּוֹךְ הָאֹהֶל. {פ} 11

And jehovah spoke unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he would return into the camp; but his minister Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the Tent. {P}

יב וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-יְהוָה, רְאֵה אַתָּה אֹמֵר אֵלַי הַעַל אֶת-הָעָם הַזֶּה, וְאַתָּה לֹא הוֹדַעְתַּנִי, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-תִּשְׁלַח עִמִּי; וְאַתָּה אָמַרְתָּ יְדַעְתִּיךָ בְשֵׁם, וְגַם-מָצָאתָ חֵן בְּעֵינָי. 12

And Moses said unto jehovah:

‘See, Thou sayest unto me:

Bring up this people;

and Thou hast not let me know whom Thou wilt send with me. Yet Thou hast said:

I know thee by name, and thou hast also found favour in My sight.

יג וְעַתָּה אִם-נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ, הוֹדִעֵנִי נָא אֶת-דְּרָכֶךָ, וְאֵדָעֲךָ, לְמַעַן אֶמְצָא-חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ; וּרְאֵה, כִּי עַמְּךָ הַגּוֹי הַזֶּה. 13

Now therefore, I pray Thee, if I have found favour in Thy sight, show me now Thy ways, that I may know Thee, to the end that I may find favour in Thy sight; and consider that this nation is Thy people.’

יד וַיֹּאמַר: פָּנַי יֵלֵכוּ, וַהֲנִחֹתִי לָךְ. 14

And He said:

‘My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.’

טו וַיֹּאמֶר, אֵלָיו: אִם-אֵין פָּנֶיךָ הֹלְכִים, אַל-תַּעֲלֵנוּ מִזֶּה. 15

And he said unto Him:

‘If Thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.

טז וּבַמֶּה יִוָּדַע אֵפוֹא, כִּי-מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ אֲנִי וְעַמֶּךָ–הֲלוֹא, בְּלֶכְתְּךָ עִמָּנוּ; וְנִפְלִינוּ, אֲנִי וְעַמְּךָ, מִכָּל-הָעָם, אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה. {פ} 16

For wherein now shall it be known that I have found favour in Thy sight, I and Thy people? is it not in that Thou goest with us, so that we are distinguished, I and Thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth?’ {P}

יז וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, גַּם אֶת-הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ אֶעֱשֶׂה: כִּי-מָצָאתָ חֵן בְּעֵינַי, וָאֵדָעֲךָ בְּשֵׁם. 17

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken, for thou hast found favour in My sight, and I know thee by name.’

יח וַיֹּאמַר: הַרְאֵנִי נָא, אֶת-כְּבֹדֶךָ. 18

And he said:

‘Show me, I pray Thee, Thy glory.’

יט וַיֹּאמֶר, אֲנִי אַעֲבִיר כָּל-טוּבִי עַל-פָּנֶיךָ, וְקָרָאתִי בְשֵׁם יְהוָה, לְפָנֶיךָ; וְחַנֹּתִי אֶת-אֲשֶׁר אָחֹן, וְרִחַמְתִּי אֶת-אֲשֶׁר אֲרַחֵם. 19

And He said:

‘I will make all My goodness pass before thee, and will proclaim the name of jehovah before thee; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.’

כ וַיֹּאמֶר, לֹא תוּכַל לִרְאֹת אֶת-פָּנָי: כִּי לֹא-יִרְאַנִי הָאָדָם, וָחָי. 20

And He said:

‘Thou canst not see My presence, for man shall not see Me and live.’

כא וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, הִנֵּה מָקוֹם אִתִּי; וְנִצַּבְתָּ, עַל-הַצּוּר. 21

And jehovah said:

‘Behold, there is a place by Me, and thou shalt stand upon the rock.

כב וְהָיָה בַּעֲבֹר כְּבֹדִי, וְשַׂמְתִּיךָ בְּנִקְרַת הַצּוּר; וְשַׂכֹּתִי כַפִּי עָלֶיךָ, עַד-עָבְרִי. 22

And it shall come to pass, while My glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with My hand until I have passed by.

כג וַהֲסִרֹתִי, אֶת-כַּפִּי, וְרָאִיתָ, אֶת-אֲחֹרָי; וּפָנַי, לֹא יֵרָאוּ. {פ} 23

And I will take away My hand, and thou shalt see My back; but My face shall not be seen.’ {P}

Chapter 34

א וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, פְּסָל-לְךָ שְׁנֵי-לֻחֹת אֲבָנִים כָּרִאשֹׁנִים; וְכָתַבְתִּי, עַל-הַלֻּחֹת, אֶת-הַדְּבָרִים, אֲשֶׁר הָיוּ עַל-הַלֻּחֹת הָרִאשֹׁנִים אֲשֶׁר שִׁבַּרְתָּ. 1

And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first; and I will write upon the tables the words that were on the first tables, which thou didst break.

ב וֶהְיֵה נָכוֹן, לַבֹּקֶר; וְעָלִיתָ בַבֹּקֶר אֶל-הַר סִינַי, וְנִצַּבְתָּ לִי שָׁם עַל-רֹאשׁ הָהָר. 2

And be ready by the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to Me on the top of the mount.

ג וְאִישׁ לֹא-יַעֲלֶה עִמָּךְ, וְגַם-אִישׁ אַל-יֵרָא בְּכָל-הָהָר; גַּם-הַצֹּאן וְהַבָּקָר אַל-יִרְעוּ, אֶל-מוּל הָהָר הַהוּא. 3

And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.’

ד וַיִּפְסֹל שְׁנֵי-לֻחֹת אֲבָנִים כָּרִאשֹׁנִים, וַיַּשְׁכֵּם מֹשֶׁה בַבֹּקֶר וַיַּעַל אֶל-הַר סִינַי, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֹתוֹ; וַיִּקַּח בְּיָדוֹ, שְׁנֵי לֻחֹת אֲבָנִים. 4

And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as jehovah had commanded him, and took in his hand two tables of stone.

ה וַיֵּרֶד יְהוָה בֶּעָנָן, וַיִּתְיַצֵּב עִמּוֹ שָׁם; וַיִּקְרָא בְשֵׁם, יְהוָה. 5

And jehovah descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of jehovah.

ו וַיַּעֲבֹר יְהוָה עַל-פָּנָיו, וַיִּקְרָא, יְהוָה יְהוָה, אֵל רַחוּם וְחַנּוּן–אֶרֶךְ אַפַּיִם, וְרַב-חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת. 6

And jehovah passed by before him, and proclaimed:

‘Jehovah, jehovah, God, merciful and full of favour, long-suffering, and abundant in kindness and truth;

ז נֹצֵר חֶסֶד לָאֲלָפִים, נֹשֵׂא עָו‍ֹן וָפֶשַׁע וְחַטָּאָה; וְנַקֵּה, לֹא יְנַקֶּה–פֹּקֵד עֲו‍ֹן אָבוֹת עַל-בָּנִים וְעַל-בְּנֵי בָנִים, עַל-שִׁלֵּשִׁים וְעַל-רִבֵּעִים. 7

keeping kindness unto the thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin; and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, and upon the sons’s sons, unto the third and unto the fourth generation.’

ח וַיְמַהֵר, מֹשֶׁה; וַיִּקֹּד אַרְצָה, וַיִּשְׁתָּחוּ. 8

And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

ט וַיֹּאמֶר אִם-נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ, אֲדֹנָי, יֵלֶךְ-נָא אֲדֹנָי, בְּקִרְבֵּנוּ: כִּי עַם-קְשֵׁה-עֹרֶף הוּא, וְסָלַחְתָּ לַעֲו‍ֹנֵנוּ וּלְחַטָּאתֵנוּ וּנְחַלְתָּנוּ. 9

And he said:

‘If now I have found favour in Thy sight, my Lord, let my Lord, I pray Thee, go in the midst of us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for Thine inheritance.’

י וַיֹּאמֶר, הִנֵּה אָנֹכִי כֹּרֵת בְּרִית, נֶגֶד כָּל-עַמְּךָ אֶעֱשֶׂה נִפְלָאֹת, אֲשֶׁר לֹא-נִבְרְאוּ בְכָל-הָאָרֶץ וּבְכָל-הַגּוֹיִם; וְרָאָה כָל-הָעָם אֲשֶׁר-אַתָּה בְקִרְבּוֹ אֶת-מַעֲשֵׂה יְהוָה, כִּי-נוֹרָא הוּא, אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי, עֹשֶׂה עִמָּךְ. 10

And He said:

‘Behold, I make a covenant; before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been wrought in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of jehovah that I am about to do with thee, that it is tremendous.

יא שְׁמָר-לְךָ–אֵת אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי, מְצַוְּךָ הַיּוֹם; הִנְנִי גֹרֵשׁ מִפָּנֶיךָ, אֶת-הָאֱמֹרִי וְהַכְּנַעֲנִי, וְהַחִתִּי וְהַפְּרִזִּי, וְהַחִוִּי וְהַיְבוּסִי. 11

Observe thou that which I alone am commanding thee this day; behold, I am driving out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.

יב הִשָּׁמֶר לְךָ, פֶּן-תִּכְרֹת בְּרִית לְיוֹשֵׁב הָאָרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה, בָּא עָלֶיהָ: פֶּן-יִהְיֶה לְמוֹקֵשׁ, בְּקִרְבֶּךָ. 12

Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest they be for a snare in the midst of thee.

יג כִּי אֶת-מִזְבְּחֹתָם תִּתֹּצוּן, וְאֶת-מַצֵּבֹתָם תְּשַׁבֵּרוּן; וְאֶת-אֲשֵׁרָיו, תִּכְרֹתוּן. 13

But ye shall break down their altars, and dash in pieces their pillars, and ye shall cut down their Asherim.

יד כִּי לֹא תִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה, לְאֵל אַחֵר: כִּי יְהוָה קַנָּא שְׁמוֹ, אֵל קַנָּא הוּא. 14

For thou shalt bow down to no other god; for jehovah, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God;

טו פֶּן-תִּכְרֹת בְּרִית, לְיוֹשֵׁב הָאָרֶץ; וְזָנוּ אַחֲרֵי אֱלֹהֵיהֶם, וְזָבְחוּ לֵאלֹהֵיהֶם, וְקָרָא לְךָ, וְאָכַלְתָּ מִזִּבְחוֹ. 15

lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go astray after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and they call thee, and thou eat of their sacrifice;

טז וְלָקַחְתָּ מִבְּנֹתָיו, לְבָנֶיךָ; וְזָנוּ בְנֹתָיו, אַחֲרֵי אֱלֹהֵיהֶן, וְהִזְנוּ אֶת-בָּנֶיךָ, אַחֲרֵי אֱלֹהֵיהֶן. 16

and thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go astray after their gods, and make thy sons go astray after their gods.

יז אֱלֹהֵי מַסֵּכָה, לֹא תַעֲשֶׂה-לָּךְ. 17

Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.

יח אֶת-חַג הַמַּצּוֹת, תִּשְׁמֹר–שִׁבְעַת יָמִים תֹּאכַל מַצּוֹת אֲשֶׁר צִוִּיתִךָ, לְמוֹעֵד חֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב: כִּי בְּחֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב, יָצָאתָ מִמִּצְרָיִם. 18

The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, at the time appointed in the month Abib, for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.

יט כָּל-פֶּטֶר רֶחֶם, לִי; וְכָל-מִקְנְךָ תִּזָּכָר, פֶּטֶר שׁוֹר וָשֶׂה. 19

All that openeth the womb is Mine; and of all thy cattle thou shalt sanctify the males, the firstlings of ox and sheep.

כ וּפֶטֶר חֲמוֹר תִּפְדֶּה בְשֶׂה, וְאִם-לֹא תִפְדֶּה וַעֲרַפְתּוֹ; כֹּל בְּכוֹר בָּנֶיךָ תִּפְדֶּה, וְלֹא-יֵרָאוּ פָנַי רֵיקָם. 20

And the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break its neck. All the first-born of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear before Me empty.

כא שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים תַּעֲבֹד, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי תִּשְׁבֹּת; בֶּחָרִישׁ וּבַקָּצִיר, תִּשְׁבֹּת. 21

Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest; in plowing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.

כב וְחַג שָׁבֻעֹת תַּעֲשֶׂה לְךָ, בִּכּוּרֵי קְצִיר חִטִּים; וְחַג, הָאָסִיף–תְּקוּפַת, הַשָּׁנָה. 22

And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, even of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the turn of the year.

כג שָׁלֹשׁ פְּעָמִים, בַּשָּׁנָה–יֵרָאֶה, כָּל-זְכוּרְךָ, אֶת-פְּנֵי הָאָדֹן יְהוָה, אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. 23

Three times in the year shall all thy males appear before the Lord jehovah God of Israel.

כד כִּי-אוֹרִישׁ גּוֹיִם מִפָּנֶיךָ, וְהִרְחַבְתִּי אֶת-גְּבֻלֶךָ; וְלֹא-יַחְמֹד אִישׁ, אֶת-אַרְצְךָ, בַּעֲלֹתְךָ לֵרָאוֹת אֶת-פְּנֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, שָׁלֹשׁ פְּעָמִים בַּשָּׁנָה. 24

For I will cast out nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders; neither shall any man covet thy land, when thou goest up to appear before jehovah thy God three times in the year.

כה לֹא-תִשְׁחַט עַל-חָמֵץ, דַּם-זִבְחִי; וְלֹא-יָלִין לַבֹּקֶר, זֶבַח חַג הַפָּסַח. 25

Thou shalt not offer the blood of My sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.

כו רֵאשִׁית, בִּכּוּרֵי אַדְמָתְךָ, תָּבִיא, בֵּית יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ; לֹא-תְבַשֵּׁל גְּדִי, בַּחֲלֵב אִמּוֹ. {פ} 26

The choicest first-fruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of jehovah thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in its mother’s milk.’ {P}

כז וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, כְּתָב-לְךָ אֶת-הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה: כִּי עַל-פִּי הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה, כָּרַתִּי אִתְּךָ בְּרִית–וְאֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל. 27 And jehovah said unto Moses:

‘Write thou these words, for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.’

כח וַיְהִי-שָׁם עִם-יְהוָה, אַרְבָּעִים יוֹם וְאַרְבָּעִים לַיְלָה–לֶחֶם לֹא אָכַל, וּמַיִם לֹא שָׁתָה; וַיִּכְתֹּב עַל-הַלֻּחֹת, אֵת דִּבְרֵי הַבְּרִית–עֲשֶׂרֶת, הַדְּבָרִים. 28

And he was there with jehovah forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten words.

כט וַיְהִי, בְּרֶדֶת מֹשֶׁה מֵהַר סִינַי, וּשְׁנֵי לֻחֹת הָעֵדֻת בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה, בְּרִדְתּוֹ מִן-הָהָר; וּמֹשֶׁה לֹא-יָדַע, כִּי קָרַן עוֹר פָּנָיו–בְּדַבְּרוֹ אִתּוֹ. 29

And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of the testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses knew not that the skin of his face sent forth beams while He talked with him.

ל וַיַּרְא אַהֲרֹן וְכָל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה, וְהִנֵּה קָרַן, עוֹר פָּנָיו; וַיִּירְאוּ, מִגֶּשֶׁת אֵלָיו. 30

And when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face sent forth beams; and they were afraid to come nigh him.

לא וַיִּקְרָא אֲלֵהֶם מֹשֶׁה, וַיָּשֻׁבוּ אֵלָיו אַהֲרֹן וְכָל-הַנְּשִׂאִים בָּעֵדָה; וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה, אֲלֵהֶם. 31

And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him; and Moses spoke to them.

לב וְאַחֲרֵי-כֵן נִגְּשׁוּ, כָּל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַיְצַוֵּם–אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה אִתּוֹ, בְּהַר סִינָי. 32

And afterward all the sons of Israel came nigh, and he gave them in commandment all that jehovah had spoken with him in mount Sinai.

לג וַיְכַל מֹשֶׁה, מִדַּבֵּר אִתָּם; וַיִּתֵּן עַל-פָּנָיו, מַסְוֶה. 33

And when Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his face.

לד וּבְבֹא מֹשֶׁה לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לְדַבֵּר אִתּוֹ, יָסִיר אֶת-הַמַּסְוֶה, עַד-צֵאתוֹ; וְיָצָא, וְדִבֶּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֵת, אֲשֶׁר יְצֻוֶּה. 34 But when Moses went in before jehovah that He might speak with him, he took the veil off, until he came out; and he came out; and spoke unto the sons of Israel that which he was commanded.

לה וְרָאוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֶת-פְּנֵי מֹשֶׁה, כִּי קָרַן, עוֹר פְּנֵי מֹשֶׁה; וְהֵשִׁיב מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַמַּסְוֶה עַל-פָּנָיו, עַד-בֹּאוֹ לְדַבֵּר אִתּוֹ. {ס} 35

And the sons of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face sent forth beams; and Moses put the veil back upon his face, until he went in to speak with Him. {S}

Chapter 35

א וַיַּקְהֵל מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם: אֵלֶּה, הַדְּבָרִים, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, לַעֲשֹׂת אֹתָם. 1

And Moses assembled all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and said unto them:

‘These are the words which jehovah hath commanded, that ye should do them.

ב שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים, תֵּעָשֶׂה מְלָאכָה, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי יִהְיֶה לָכֶם קֹדֶשׁ שַׁבַּת שַׁבָּתוֹן, לַיהוָה; כָּל-הָעֹשֶׂה בוֹ מְלָאכָה, יוּמָת. 2

Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to jehovah; whosoever doeth any work therein shall be put to death.

ג לֹא-תְבַעֲרוּ אֵשׁ, בְּכֹל מֹשְׁבֹתֵיכֶם, בְּיוֹם, הַשַּׁבָּת. {פ} 3

Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.’ {P}

ד וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לֵאמֹר: זֶה הַדָּבָר, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה לֵאמֹר. 4

And Moses spoke unto all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying:

‘This is the thing which jehovah commanded, saying:

ה קְחוּ מֵאִתְּכֶם תְּרוּמָה, לַיהוָה, כֹּל נְדִיב לִבּוֹ, יְבִיאֶהָ אֵת תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה: זָהָב וָכֶסֶף, וּנְחֹשֶׁת. 5

Take ye from among you an offering unto jehovah, whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, jehovah’s offering:

gold, and silver, and copper;

ו וּתְכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי, וְשֵׁשׁ וְעִזִּים. 6

and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair;

ז וְעֹרֹת אֵילִם מְאָדָּמִים וְעֹרֹת תְּחָשִׁים, וַעֲצֵי שִׁטִּים. 7

and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia-wood;

ח וְשֶׁמֶן, לַמָּאוֹר; וּבְשָׂמִים לְשֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְלִקְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים. 8

and oil for the light, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense;

ט וְאַבְנֵי-שֹׁהַם–וְאַבְנֵי, מִלֻּאִים: לָאֵפוֹד, וְלַחֹשֶׁן. 9

and onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate.

י וְכָל-חֲכַם-לֵב, בָּכֶם, יָבֹאוּ וְיַעֲשׂוּ, אֵת כָּל-אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה. 10

And let every wise-hearted man among you come, and make all that jehovah hath commanded:

יא אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן–אֶת-אָהֳלוֹ, וְאֶת-מִכְסֵהוּ; אֶת-קְרָסָיו, וְאֶת-קְרָשָׁיו, אֶת-בְּרִיחָו, אֶת-עַמֻּדָיו וְאֶת-אֲדָנָיו. 11

the tabernacle, its tent, and its covering, its clasps, and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its sockets;

יב אֶת-הָאָרֹן וְאֶת-בַּדָּיו, אֶת-הַכַּפֹּרֶת; וְאֵת, פָּרֹכֶת הַמָּסָךְ. 12

the ark, and the staves thereof, the ark-cover, and the veil of the screen;

יג אֶת-הַשֻּׁלְחָן וְאֶת-בַּדָּיו, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; וְאֵת, לֶחֶם הַפָּנִים. 13

the table, and its staves, and all its vessels, and the showbread;

יד וְאֶת-מְנֹרַת הַמָּאוֹר וְאֶת-כֵּלֶיהָ, וְאֶת-נֵרֹתֶיהָ; וְאֵת, שֶׁמֶן הַמָּאוֹר. 14

the candlestick also for the light, and its vessels, and its lamps, and the oil for the light;

טו וְאֶת-מִזְבַּח הַקְּטֹרֶת, וְאֶת-בַּדָּיו, וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְאֵת קְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים; וְאֶת-מָסַךְ הַפֶּתַח, לְפֶתַח הַמִּשְׁכָּן. 15 and the altar of incense, and its staves, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense, and the screen for the door, at the door of the tabernacle;

טז אֵת מִזְבַּח הָעֹלָה, וְאֶת-מִכְבַּר הַנְּחֹשֶׁת אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ, אֶת-בַּדָּיו, וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו; אֶת-הַכִּיֹּר, וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ. 16

the altar of burnt-offering, with its grating of brass, its staves, and all its vessels, the laver and its base;

יז אֵת קַלְעֵי הֶחָצֵר, אֶת-עַמֻּדָיו וְאֶת-אֲדָנֶיהָ; וְאֵת, מָסַךְ שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר. 17

the hangings of the court, the pillars thereof, and their sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court;

יח אֶת-יִתְדֹת הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת-יִתְדֹת הֶחָצֵר, וְאֶת-מֵיתְרֵיהֶם. 18

the pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their cords;

יט אֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַשְּׂרָד, לְשָׁרֵת בַּקֹּדֶשׁ: אֶת-בִּגְדֵי הַקֹּדֶשׁ לְאַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, וְאֶת-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו לְכַהֵן. 19

the plaited garments, for ministering in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.’

כ וַיֵּצְאוּ כָּל-עֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, מִלִּפְנֵי מֹשֶׁה. 20

And all the congregation of the sons of Israel departed from the presence of Moses.

כא וַיָּבֹאוּ, כָּל-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-נְשָׂאוֹ לִבּוֹ; וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר נָדְבָה רוּחוֹ אֹתוֹ, הֵבִיאוּ אֶת-תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה לִמְלֶאכֶת אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד וּלְכָל-עֲבֹדָתוֹ, וּלְבִגְדֵי, הַקֹּדֶשׁ. 21

And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whom his spirit made willing, and brought jehovah’s offering, for the work of the tent of meeting, and for all the service thereof, and for the holy garments.

כב וַיָּבֹאוּ הָאֲנָשִׁים, עַל-הַנָּשִׁים; כֹּל נְדִיב לֵב, הֵבִיאוּ חָח וָנֶזֶם וְטַבַּעַת וְכוּמָז כָּל-כְּלִי זָהָב, וְכָל-אִישׁ, אֲשֶׁר הֵנִיף תְּנוּפַת זָהָב לַיהוָה. 22

And they came, both men and women, as many as were willing-hearted, and brought nose-rings, and ear-rings, and signet-rings, and girdles, all jewels of gold; even every man that brought an offering of gold unto jehovah.

כג וְכָל-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-נִמְצָא אִתּוֹ, תְּכֵלֶת וְאַרְגָּמָן וְתוֹלַעַת שָׁנִי–וְשֵׁשׁ וְעִזִּים; וְעֹרֹת אֵילִם מְאָדָּמִים וְעֹרֹת תְּחָשִׁים, הֵבִיאוּ. 23

And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and sealskins, brought them.

כד כָּל-מֵרִים, תְּרוּמַת כֶּסֶף וּנְחֹשֶׁת, הֵבִיאוּ, אֵת תְּרוּמַת יְהוָה; וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר נִמְצָא אִתּוֹ עֲצֵי שִׁטִּים, לְכָל-מְלֶאכֶת הָעֲבֹדָה–הֵבִיאוּ. 24

Every one that did set apart an offering of silver and brass brought jehovah’s offering; and every man, with whom was found acacia-wood for any work of the service, brought it.

כה וְכָל-אִשָּׁה חַכְמַת-לֵב, בְּיָדֶיהָ טָווּ; וַיָּבִיאוּ מַטְוֶה, אֶת-הַתְּכֵלֶת וְאֶת-הָאַרְגָּמָן, אֶת-תּוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי, וְאֶת-הַשֵּׁשׁ. 25 And all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with their hands, and brought that which they had spun, the blue, and the purple, the scarlet, and the fine linen.

כו וְכָל-הַנָּשִׁים–אֲשֶׁר נָשָׂא לִבָּן אֹתָנָה, בְּחָכְמָה: טָווּ, אֶת-הָעִזִּים. 26

And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun the goats’ hair.

כז וְהַנְּשִׂאִם הֵבִיאוּ–אֵת אַבְנֵי הַשֹּׁהַם, וְאֵת אַבְנֵי הַמִּלֻּאִים: לָאֵפוֹד, וְלַחֹשֶׁן. 27

And the rulers brought the onyx stones, and the stones to be set, for the ephod, and for the breastplate;

כח וְאֶת-הַבֹּשֶׂם, וְאֶת-הַשָּׁמֶן: לְמָאוֹר–וּלְשֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וְלִקְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים. 28

and the spice, and the oil, for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for the sweet incense.

כט כָּל-אִישׁ וְאִשָּׁה, אֲשֶׁר נָדַב לִבָּם אֹתָם, לְהָבִיא לְכָל-הַמְּלָאכָה, אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשׂוֹת בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה–הֵבִיאוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל נְדָבָה, לַיהוָה. {פ} 29

The sons of Israel brought a freewill-offering unto jehovah; every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring for all the work, which jehovah had commanded by the hand of Moses to be made. {P}

ל וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, רְאוּ קָרָא יְהוָה בְּשֵׁם, בְּצַלְאֵל בֶּן-אוּרִי בֶן-חוּר, לְמַטֵּה יְהוּדָה. 30

And Moses said unto the sons of Israel:

‘See, jehovah hath called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.

לא וַיְמַלֵּא אֹתוֹ, רוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, בְּחָכְמָה בִּתְבוּנָה וּבְדַעַת, וּבְכָל-מְלָאכָה. 31

And He hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

לב וְלַחְשֹׁב, מַחֲשָׁבֹת–לַעֲשֹׂת בַּזָּהָב וּבַכֶּסֶף, וּבַנְּחֹשֶׁת. 32

And to devise skilful works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass,

לג וּבַחֲרֹשֶׁת אֶבֶן לְמַלֹּאת, וּבַחֲרֹשֶׁת עֵץ; לַעֲשׂוֹת, בְּכָל-מְלֶאכֶת מַחֲשָׁבֶת. 33

and in cutting of stones for setting, and in carving of wood, to work in all manner of skilful workmanship.

לד וּלְהוֹרֹת, נָתַן בְּלִבּוֹ: הוּא, וְאָהֳלִיאָב בֶּן-אֲחִיסָמָךְ לְמַטֵּה-דָן. 34

And He hath put in his heart that he may teach, both he, and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.

לה מִלֵּא אֹתָם חָכְמַת-לֵב, לַעֲשׂוֹת כָּל-מְלֶאכֶת חָרָשׁ וְחֹשֵׁב, וְרֹקֵם בַּתְּכֵלֶת וּבָאַרְגָּמָן בְּתוֹלַעַת הַשָּׁנִי וּבַשֵּׁשׁ, וְאֹרֵג; עֹשֵׂי, כָּל-מְלָאכָה, וְחֹשְׁבֵי, מַחֲשָׁבֹת. 35

Them hath He filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of workmanship, of the craftsman, and of the skilful workman, and of the weaver in colours, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of them that do any workmanship, and of those that devise skilful works.
