Torah Trek 133 “Profane the holy things of the sons of Israel”

Torah 133 Numbers 18

לא וַאֲכַלְתֶּם אֹתוֹ בְּכָל-מָקוֹם, אַתֶּם וּבֵיתְכֶם: כִּי-שָׂכָר הוּא לָכֶם, חֵלֶף עֲבֹדַתְכֶם בְּאֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 31
And ye may eat it in every place, ye and your households;
for it is your reward in return for your service in the tent of meeting.

לב וְלֹא-תִשְׂאוּ עָלָיו חֵטְא, בַּהֲרִימְכֶם אֶת-חֶלְבּוֹ מִמֶּנּוּ; וְאֶת-קָדְשֵׁי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לֹא תְחַלְּלוּ, וְלֹא תָמוּתוּ. {פ} 32
And ye shall bear no sin by reason of it, seeing that ye have set apart from it the best thereof;
and ye shall not profane the holy things of the sons of Israel, that ye die not.’ {P}

Chapter 19

א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר. 1
And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

ב זֹאת חֻקַּת הַתּוֹרָה, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה לֵאמֹר: דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְיִקְחוּ אֵלֶיךָ פָרָה אֲדֻמָּה תְּמִימָה אֲשֶׁר אֵין-בָּהּ מוּם, אֲשֶׁר לֹא-עָלָה עָלֶיהָ, עֹל. 2
This is the statute of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying:
Speak unto the sons of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer, faultless, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke.

ג וּנְתַתֶּם אֹתָהּ, אֶל-אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן; וְהוֹצִיא אֹתָהּ אֶל-מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה, וְשָׁחַט אֹתָהּ לְפָנָיו. 3
And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, and she shall be brought forth without the camp, and she shall be slain before his face.

ד וְלָקַח אֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן, מִדָּמָהּ–בְּאֶצְבָּעוֹ; וְהִזָּה אֶל-נֹכַח פְּנֵי אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד, מִדָּמָהּ–שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים. 4
And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and sprinkle of her blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times.

ה וְשָׂרַף אֶת-הַפָּרָה, לְעֵינָיו: אֶת-עֹרָהּ וְאֶת-בְּשָׂרָהּ וְאֶת-דָּמָהּ, עַל-פִּרְשָׁהּ יִשְׂרֹף. 5
And the heifer shall be burnt in his sight; her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall be burnt.

ו וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן, עֵץ אֶרֶז וְאֵזוֹב–וּשְׁנִי תוֹלָעַת; וְהִשְׁלִיךְ, אֶל-תּוֹךְ שְׂרֵפַת הַפָּרָה. 6
And the priest shall take cedar-wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.

ז וְכִבֶּס בְּגָדָיו הַכֹּהֵן, וְרָחַץ בְּשָׂרוֹ בַּמַּיִם, וְאַחַר, יָבֹא אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה; וְטָמֵא הַכֹּהֵן, עַד-הָעָרֶב. 7
Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he may come into the camp, and the priest shall be unclean until the even.

ח וְהַשֹּׂרֵף אֹתָהּ–יְכַבֵּס בְּגָדָיו בַּמַּיִם, וְרָחַץ בְּשָׂרוֹ בַּמָּיִם; וְטָמֵא, עַד-הָעָרֶב. 8
And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.

ט וְאָסַף אִישׁ טָהוֹר, אֵת אֵפֶר הַפָּרָה, וְהִנִּיחַ מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה, בְּמָקוֹם טָהוֹר; וְהָיְתָה לַעֲדַת בְּנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לְמִשְׁמֶרֶת, לְמֵי נִדָּה–חַטָּאת הִוא. 9
And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the sons of Israel for a water of sprinkling;
it is a purification from sin.

י וְכִבֶּס הָאֹסֵף אֶת-אֵפֶר הַפָּרָה, אֶת-בְּגָדָיו, וְטָמֵא, עַד-הָעָרֶב; וְהָיְתָה לִבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְלַגֵּר הַגָּר בְּתוֹכָם–לְחֻקַּת עוֹלָם. 10
And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even;
and it shall be unto the sons of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever.

יא הַנֹּגֵעַ בְּמֵת, לְכָל-נֶפֶשׁ אָדָם–וְטָמֵא, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 11
He that toucheth the dead, even any man’s dead body, shall be unclean seven days;

יב הוּא יִתְחַטָּא-בוֹ בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי–יִטְהָר; וְאִם-לֹא יִתְחַטָּא בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי, וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי–לֹא יִטְהָר. 12
the same shall purify himself therewith on the third day and on the seventh day, and he shall be clean;
but if he purify not himself the third day and the seventh day, he shall not be clean.

יג כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בְּמֵת בְּנֶפֶשׁ הָאָדָם אֲשֶׁר-יָמוּת וְלֹא יִתְחַטָּא, אֶת-מִשְׁכַּן יְהוָה טִמֵּא–וְנִכְרְתָה הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא, מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל: כִּי מֵי נִדָּה לֹא-זֹרַק עָלָיו, טָמֵא יִהְיֶה–עוֹד, טֻמְאָתוֹ בוֹ. 13
Whosoever toucheth the dead, even the body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself–
he hath defiled the tabernacle of the LORD–
that soul shall be cut off from Israel;
because the water of sprinkling was not dashed against him, he shall be unclean;
his uncleanness is yet upon him.

יד זֹאת, הַתּוֹרָה, אָדָם, כִּי-יָמוּת בְּאֹהֶל: כָּל-הַבָּא אֶל-הָאֹהֶל וְכָל-אֲשֶׁר בָּאֹהֶל, יִטְמָא שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 14
This is the law:
when a man dieth in a tent, every one that cometh into the tent, and every thing that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days.

טו וְכֹל כְּלִי פָתוּחַ, אֲשֶׁר אֵין-צָמִיד פָּתִיל עָלָיו–טָמֵא, הוּא. 15
And every open vessel, which hath no covering close-bound upon it, is unclean.
