Numbers 31:20 ā€” Numbers 31:47

20 And you shall purify for yourselves every garment and every article of skin and everything made of goats’ hair and every article of wood.

21 And Eleazar the priest said to the men of war who had gone to the battle, This is the statute of the law which Jehovah has commanded Moses:

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

23 Everything that can go into the fire, you shall pass through the fire, and it will become clean; but it shall be purified with the water for impurity; and everything that cannot go into the fire you shall pass through the water.

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

25 Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

26 You and Eleazar the priest and the heads of the fathers’ households of the assembly, take the sum of the booty that was captured, both of man and of beast,

27 And halve the booty between those skilled in war who went out to battle and the whole assembly.

28 And levy a tribute to Jehovah from the men of war who went out to battle: one living thing out of five hundred, of the persons and of the cattle and of the donkeys and of the flock;

29 Take it from their half and give it to Eleazar the priest, for Jehovah’s heave offering.

30 And of the children of Israel’s half, you shall take one seized out of fifty, of the persons, of the cattle, of the donkeys, and of the flocks, from all the beasts, and give them to the Levites, who keep the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah.

31 And Moses and Eleazar the priest did just as Jehovah commanded Moses.

32 Now the booty that was left from the spoil which the men of war took was six hundred seventy-five thousand sheep,

33 And seventy-two thousand cattle,

34 And sixty-one thousand donkeys,

35 And thirty-two thousand persons in all, the women who had not known lying with a male.

36 And the half, which was the portion of those who went out to war, was in number three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep.

37 And Jehovah’s tribute of the sheep was six hundred seventy-five.

38 And the cattle were thirty-six thousand, of which Jehovah’s tribute was seventy-two.

39 And the donkeys were thirty thousand five hundred, of which Jehovah’s tribute was sixty-one.

40 And the human beings were sixteen thousand, of whom Jehovah’s tribute was thirty-two persons.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, Jehovah’s heave offering, to Eleazar the priest, just as Jehovah had commanded Moses.

42 And of the children of Israel’s half, which Moses had separated from the men who had gone to war –

43 That is, the assembly’s half was three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep,

44 And thirty-six thousand cattle,

45 And thirty thousand five hundred donkeys,

46 And sixteen thousand persons –

47 Now Moses took from the children of Israel’s half, one drawn out of every fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them to the Levites, who kept the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah, just as Jehovah had commanded Moses.
