Torah Trek 130 “And he stood between the dead and the living”

130 Numbers 17 8/6

ט וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 9
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

י הֵרֹמּוּ, מִתּוֹךְ הָעֵדָה הַזֹּאת, וַאֲכַלֶּה אֹתָם, כְּרָגַע; וַיִּפְּלוּ, עַל-פְּנֵיהֶם. 10
‘Get you up from among this community, that I may consume them in a moment.’
And they fell upon their faces.

יא וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, קַח אֶת-הַמַּחְתָּה וְתֶן-עָלֶיהָ אֵשׁ מֵעַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְשִׂים קְטֹרֶת, וְהוֹלֵךְ מְהֵרָה אֶל-הָעֵדָה, וְכַפֵּר עֲלֵיהֶם: כִּי-יָצָא הַקֶּצֶף מִלִּפְנֵי יְהוָה, הֵחֵל הַנָּגֶף. 11
And Moses said unto Aaron:
‘Take thy fire-pan, and put fire therein from off the altar, and lay incense thereon, and carry it quickly unto the community, and make atonement for them;
for there is wrath gone out from the LORD:
the plague is begun.’

יב וַיִּקַּח אַהֲרֹן כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר מֹשֶׁה, וַיָּרָץ אֶל-תּוֹךְ הַקָּהָל, וְהִנֵּה הֵחֵל הַנֶּגֶף, בָּעָם; וַיִּתֵּן, אֶת-הַקְּטֹרֶת, וַיְכַפֵּר, עַל-הָעָם. 12
And Aaron took as Moses spoke, and ran into the midst of the assembly;
and, behold, the plague was begun among the people;
and he put on the incense, and made atonement for the people.

יג וַיַּעֲמֹד בֵּין-הַמֵּתִים, וּבֵין הַחַיִּים; וַתֵּעָצַר, הַמַּגֵּפָה. 13
And he stood between the dead and the living;
and the plague was stayed.

יד וַיִּהְיוּ, הַמֵּתִים בַּמַּגֵּפָה, אַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר אֶלֶף, וּשְׁבַע מֵאוֹת–מִלְּבַד הַמֵּתִים, עַל-דְּבַר-קֹרַח. 14
Now they that died by the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides them that died about the matter of Korah.

טו וַיָּשָׁב אַהֲרֹן אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וְהַמַּגֵּפָה, נֶעֱצָרָה. {פ} 15
And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tent of meeting, and the plague was stayed. {P}

טז וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 16
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

יז דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְקַח מֵאִתָּם מַטֶּה מַטֶּה לְבֵית אָב מֵאֵת כָּל-נְשִׂיאֵהֶם לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם–שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר, מַטּוֹת: אִישׁ אֶת-שְׁמוֹ, תִּכְתֹּב עַל-מַטֵּהוּ. 17
‘Speak unto the sons of Israel, and take of them rods, one for each fathers’ house, of all their princes according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods;
thou shalt write every man’s name upon his rod.

יח וְאֵת שֵׁם אַהֲרֹן, תִּכְתֹּב עַל-מַטֵּה לֵוִי: כִּי מַטֶּה אֶחָד, לְרֹאשׁ בֵּית אֲבוֹתָם. 18
And thou shalt write Aaron’s name upon the rod of Levi, for there shall be one rod for the head of their fathers’ houses.

יט וְהִנַּחְתָּם, בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד–לִפְנֵי, הָעֵדוּת, אֲשֶׁר אִוָּעֵד לָכֶם, שָׁמָּה. 19
And thou shalt lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you.

כ וְהָיָה, הָאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר אֶבְחַר-בּוֹ–מַטֵּהוּ יִפְרָח; וַהֲשִׁכֹּתִי מֵעָלַי, אֶת-תְּלֻנּוֹת בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, אֲשֶׁר הֵם מַלִּינִם, עֲלֵיכֶם. 20
And it shall come to pass, that the man whom I shall choose, his rod shall bud;
and I will make to cease from Me the murmurings of the sons of Israel, which they murmur against you.’

כא וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וַיִּתְּנוּ אֵלָיו כָּל-נְשִׂיאֵיהֶם מַטֶּה לְנָשִׂיא אֶחָד מַטֶּה לְנָשִׂיא אֶחָד לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם–שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר, מַטּוֹת; וּמַטֵּה אַהֲרֹן, בְּתוֹךְ מַטּוֹתָם. 21
And Moses spoke unto the sons of Israel;
and all their princes gave him rods, for each prince one, according to their fathers’ houses, even twelve rods;
and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.

כב וַיַּנַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַמַּטֹּת, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, בְּאֹהֶל, הָעֵדֻת. 22
And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tent of the testimony.

כג וַיְהִי מִמָּחֳרָת, וַיָּבֹא מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אֹהֶל הָעֵדוּת, וְהִנֵּה פָּרַח מַטֵּה-אַהֲרֹן, לְבֵית לֵוִי; וַיֹּצֵא פֶרַח וַיָּצֵץ צִיץ, וַיִּגְמֹל שְׁקֵדִים. 23
And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses went into the tent of the testimony;
and, behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and put forth buds, and bloomed blossoms, and bore ripe almonds.

כד וַיֹּצֵא מֹשֶׁה אֶת-כָּל-הַמַּטֹּת מִלִּפְנֵי יְהוָה, אֶל-כָּל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל; וַיִּרְאוּ וַיִּקְחוּ, אִישׁ מַטֵּהוּ. {פ} 24
And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto all the sons of Israel;
and they looked, and took every man his rod. {P}
