Numbers 17:1 Numbers 17:13

1 Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Speak to the children of Israel, and take from them rods, one for each father’s house, twelve rods from all their leaders according to their fathers’ houses; you shall write everyone’s name upon his rod.

3 And you shall write Aaron’s name upon the rod of Levi, for there shall be one rod for the head of each of their fathers’ houses.

4 And you shall place them in the Tent of Meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you.

5 And the rod of the man whom I choose shall bud, and I will put a stop to the murmurings of the children of Israel against Me, which they murmur against you.

6 So Moses spoke to the children of Israel. And every one of their leaders gave him a rod, one rod for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods, with the rod of Aaron among their rods.

7 And Moses placed the rods before Jehovah in the Tent of the Testimony.

8 And on the next day Moses went into the Tent of the Testimony, and there was the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi: it had budded; it even put forth buds and produced blossoms and bore ripe almonds.

9 And Moses brought out all the rods from before Jehovah to all the children of Israel, and they looked; and each one took his rod.

10 Then Jehovah said to Moses, Put back the rod of Aaron before the testimony to be kept as a sign against the rebels, so that you may put an end to their murmurings against Me, and they not die.

11 And Moses did so; just as Jehovah commanded him, so he did.

12 And the children of Israel spoke to Moses, saying, Alas, we die out; we perish; all of us perish.

13 Everyone who comes near, who comes near to the tabernacle of Jehovah, dies. Are we to completely die out?
