Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenth deals of flour, mingled with half a hin of oil. 10 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a Sweet savour unto the LORD. 11 Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid. 12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number. 13 All that are born of the country shall do these things after this Inanner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a Sweet Savour unto the LORD. 14 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD ; as ye do, so he shall do. 15 One ordinance shall be both' for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourn– eth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, SO shall the stranger be before the LORD. 16 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you. 17 " And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 18 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When re, come into the land whither I ring you, 19 Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up a heave offering unto the LORD.

20 Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for a heave of— fering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall yè heave it. 21 Of the first of your §§§ ye shall give unto the LORD a heave offering in your generations. 22 " And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses, 23 Even all that the LORD hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and henceforward among your generations : 24 Then it shall be, if aught be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering. 25 And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them : for it is ignorance; and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance : 26 And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the Stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the people were in ignorance. 27" And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering. 28 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him ; and it shall be forgiven him. 29 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them. 30 " But the soul that doeth aught presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD : and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 31 Because he hath despised the Rebellion of Korah,

word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him. 32 * And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the Sabbath day. 33 And they that found him gathering sticks, brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation. 34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him. 35 And the LORD said unto Moses, The man, shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. 36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses. 37 " And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments, throughout their generations, and that they put upon the #e of the borders a ribband of ue: 39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, or which ye use to go a whorng: 40 That ye may remember, and slo all my commandments, and be ho unto your God. 41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of *; to be your God: I am the LoftD your God.

2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the Congregation, men of renown : 3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is among them : wherefore then lift : ye up yourselves above the Congregation of the LORD? 4. And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face: 5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the LORD will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause him to come near unto him : even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him. 6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company; 7 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the LORD to morrow ; and it shall be that the man whom the LORD doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi. 8 And Moses said unto Korah, Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi: 9 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you, that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the LORD, and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them 2 10 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also 2 11 For which cause both thou and all thy company are gathered to— gether against the LORD : and what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him 2 12 || And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab ; which said, We will not come up : 13 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey, to kill us in the wilderness, except thou make thyself altogether a prince over us? 14 Moreover, thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk allooney, or given s

ron. 19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the Congregation. 20 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 21 Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I my consume them in a moment. And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the Spirits of all fiesh, shall one man n, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? 23 " And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 24 Speak unto the congregation, Saying, Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram. 25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram ; and the elders of Israel followed him. 26 And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their

They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them : and they perished from among the congregation. 34 And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also. 35 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that Offered incense. 36 T And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 37 Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder; for they are hallowed. 38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them broad plates for a covering of the altar: for they offered them before the LORD, therefore they are hallowed: and they shall be a sign unto the children of Is–

rael. 39 And Eleazar the priest took the brazen censers, where with they that were burnt had offered: and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar: 40 To be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the LORD ; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as

And they fell upon their faces. 46 of And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them : for there is wrath gone out from the LORD ; the plague is begun. 47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation: and, behold, the plague was begun among the people : and he put on incense, and inade an atonement for the people. 48 And he stood between the dead and the living ; and the plague was stayed. 49 Now they that died in the p e were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides them that died about the matter of Korah. 50 And Aaron returned unto MOses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation : and the plague was stayed.
