Números 31

1 E falou o SENHOR a Moisés, dizendo:

2 Vinga os filhos de Israel dos midianitas; depois recolhido serás ao teu povo.

3 Falou, pois, Moisés ao povo, dizendo: Armem-se alguns de vós para a guerra, e saiam contra os midianitas, para fazerem a vingança do Senhor contra eles.

4 Mil de cada tribo, entre todas as tribos de Israel, enviareis à guerra.

5 Assim foram dados, dos milhares de Israel, mil de cada tribo; doze mil armados para a peleja.

6 E Moisés os mandou à guerra, mil de cada tribo, e com eles Finéias, filho de Eleazar, o sacerdote, com os vasos do santuário, e com as trombetas do alarido na sua mão.

7 E pelejaram contra os midianitas, como o Senhor ordenara a Moisés; e mataram a todos os homens.

8 Mataram também, além dos que já haviam sido mortos, os reis dos midianitas: a Evi, e a Requém, e a Zur, e a Hur, e a Reba, cinco reis dos midianitas; também a Balaão, filho de Beor, mataram à espada.

9 Porém, os filhos de Israel levaram presas as mulheres dos midianitas e as suas crianças; também levaram todos os seus animais e todo o seu gado, e todos os seus bens.

10 E queimaram a fogo todas as suas cidades com todas as suas habitações e todos os seus acampamentos.

11 E tomaram todo o despojo e toda a presa de homens e de animais.

12 E trouxeram a Moisés e a Eleazar, o sacerdote, e à congregação dos filhos de Israel, os cativos, e a presa, e o despojo, para o arraial, nas campinas de Moabe, que estão junto ao Jordão, na altura de Jericó.

13 Porém Moisés e Eleazar, o sacerdote, e todos os príncipes da congregação, saíram a recebê-los fora do arraial.

14 E indignou-se Moisés grandemente contra os oficiais do exército, capitães dos milhares e capitães das centenas, que vinham do serviço da guerra.

15 E Moisés disse-lhes: Deixastes viver todas as mulheres?

16 Eis que estas foram as que, por conselho de Balaão, deram ocasião aos filhos de Israel de transgredir contra o Senhor no caso de Peor; por isso houve aquela praga entre a congregação do Senhor.

17 Agora, pois, matai todo o homem entre as crianças, e matai toda a mulher que conheceu algum homem, deitando-se com ele.

18 Porém, todas as meninas que não conheceram algum homem, deitando-se com ele, deixai-as viver para vós.

19 E alojai-vos sete dias fora do arraial; qualquer que tiver matado alguma pessoa, e qualquer que tiver tocado algum morto, ao terceiro dia, e ao sétimo dia vos purificareis, a vós e a vossos cativos.

20 Também purificareis toda a roupa, e toda a obra de peles, e toda a obra de pêlos de cabras, e todo o utensílio de madeira.

21 E disse Eleazar, o sacerdote, aos homens da guerra, que foram à peleja: Este é o estatuto da lei que o Senhor ordenou a Moisés.

22 Contudo o ouro, e a prata, o cobre, o ferro, o estanho, e o chumbo,

23 Toda a coisa que pode resistir ao fogo, fareis passar pelo fogo, para que fique limpa, todavia se purificará com a água da purificação; mas tudo que não pode resistir ao fogo, fareis passar pela água.

24 Também lavareis as vossas roupas ao sétimo dia, para que fiqueis limpos; e depois entrareis no arraial.

25 Falou mais o Senhor a Moisés, dizendo:

26 Faze a soma da presa que foi tomada, de homens e de animais, tu e Eleazar, o sacerdote, e os cabeças das casas dos pais da congregação,

27 E divide a presa em duas metades, entre os que se armaram para a peleja, e saíram à guerra, e toda a congregação.

28 Então para o Senhor tomarás o tributo dos homens de guerra, que saíram a esta peleja, de cada quinhentos uma alma, dos homens, e dos bois, e dos jumentos e das ovelhas.

29 Da sua metade o tomareis, e o dareis ao sacerdote Eleazar, para a oferta alçada do Senhor.

30 Mas, da metade dos filhos de Israel, tomarás um de cada cinqüenta, um dos homens, dos bois, dos jumentos, e das ovelhas, e de todos os animais; e os darás aos levitas que têm cuidado da guarda do tabernáculo do Senhor.

31 E fizeram Moisés e Eleazar, o sacerdote, como o Senhor ordenara a Moisés.

32 Foi a presa, restante do despojo que tomaram os homens de guerra, seiscentas e setenta e cinco mil ovelhas;

33 E setenta e dois mil bois;

34 E sessenta e um mil jumentos;

35 E, das mulheres que não conheceram homem algum, deitando-se com ele, todas as almas foram trinta e duas mil.

36 E a metade, que era a porção dos que saíram à guerra, foi em número de trezentas e trinta e sete mil e quinhentas ovelhas.

37 E das ovelhas, o tributo para o Senhor foi de seiscentas e setenta e cinco.

38 E foram os bois trinta e seis mil; e o seu tributo para o Senhor setenta e dois.

39 E foram os jumentos trinta mil e quinhentos; e o seu tributo para o Senhor sessenta e um.

40 E houve de pessoas dezesseis mil; e o seu tributo para o Senhor trinta e duas pessoas.

41 E deu Moisés a Eleazar, o sacerdote, o tributo da oferta alçada do Senhor, como o Senhor ordenara a Moisés.

42 E da metade dos filhos de Israel que Moisés separara da dos homens que pelejaram,

43 (A metade para a congregação foi, das ovelhas, trezentas e trinta e sete mil e quinhentas;

44 E dos bois trinta e seis mil;

45 E dos jumentos trinta mil e quinhentos;

46 E das pessoas, dezesseis mil).

47 Desta metade dos filhos de Israel, Moisés tomou um de cada cinqüenta, de homens e de animais, e os deu aos levitas, que tinham cuidado da guarda do tabernáculo do Senhor, como o Senhor ordenara a Moisés.

48 Então chegaram-se a Moisés os oficiais que estavam sobre os milhares do exército, os chefes de mil e os chefes de cem;

49 E disseram a Moisés: Teus servos tomaram a soma dos homens de guerra que estiveram sob as nossas ordens; e não falta nenhum de nós.

50 Por isso trouxemos uma oferta ao Senhor, cada um o que achou, objetos de ouro, cadeias, ou manilhas, anéis, arrecadas, e colares, para fazer expiação pelas nossas almas perante o Senhor.

51 Assim Moisés e Eleazar, o sacerdote, receberam deles o ouro, sendo todos os objetos bem trabalhados.

52 E foi todo o ouro da oferta alçada, que ofereceram ao Senhor, dezesseis mil e setecentos e cinqüenta siclos, dos chefes de mil e dos chefes de cem

53 (Pois cada um dos homens de guerra, tinha tomado presa para si).

54 Receberam, pois, Moisés e Eleazar, o sacerdote, o ouro dos chefes de mil e dos chefes de cem, e o levaram à tenda da congregação, por memorial para os filhos de Israel perante o Senhor.

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shalt thou be gathered unto thy people.

3 And Moses spake unto the people, saying, Arm some of yourselves unto the war, and let them go against the Midianites, and avenge the LORD of Midian.

4 Of every tribe a thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall ye send to the war.

5 So there were delivered out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.

6 And Moses sent them to the war, a thousand of every tribe, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the holy instruments, and the trumpets to blow in his hand.

7 And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males.

8 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely , Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

9 And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods.

10 And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire.

11 And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts.

12 And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho.

13 And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp.

14 And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle.

15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?

16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD .

17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

19 And do ye abide without the camp seven days: whosoever hath killed any person, and whosoever hath touched any slain, purify both yourselves and your captives on the third day, and on the seventh day.

20 And purify all your raiment, and all that is made of skins, and all work of goats’ hair , and all things made of wood.

21 And Eleazar the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle, This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commanded Moses;

22 Only the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,

23 Every thing that may abide the fire, ye shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean: nevertheless it shall be purified with the water of separation: and all that abideth not the fire ye shall make go through the water.

24 And ye shall wash your clothes on the seventh day, and ye shall be clean, and afterward ye shall come into the camp.

25 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

26 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the congregation:

27 And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took the war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the congregation:

28 And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:

29 Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for an heave offering of the LORD .

30 And of the children of Israel’s half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD .

31 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.

32 And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,

33 And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,

34 And threescore and one thousand asses,

35 And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known man by lying with him.

36 And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:

37 And the LORD’s tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and fifteen.

38 And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the LORD’s tribute was threescore and twelve.

39 And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD’s tribute was threescore and one.

40 And the persons were sixteen thousand; of which the LORD’s tribute was thirty and two persons.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD’s heave offering, unto Eleazar the priest, as the LORD commanded Moses.

42 And of the children of Israel’s half, which Moses divided from the men that warred,

43 (Now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three hundred thousand and thirty thousand and seven thousand and five hundred sheep,

44 And thirty and six thousand beeves,

45 And thirty thousand asses and five hundred,

46 And sixteen thousand persons;)

47 Even of the children of Israel’s half, Moses took one portion of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, which kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD ; as the LORD commanded Moses.

48 And the officers which were over thousands of the host, the captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses:

49 And they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.

50 We have therefore brought an oblation for the LORD , what every man hath gotten, of jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to make an atonement for our souls before the LORD .

51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels.

52 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the LORD , of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels.

53 ( For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.)

54 And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tabernacle of the congregation, for a memorial for the children of Israel before the LORD .
