4
Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel, because thou wentest up to thy father's bed; then defiledst thou it; he went up to my couch.
5
"Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
6
O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honor, be not thou united; for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they dug down a wall.
7
Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce; and their wrath, for it was cruel! I will divide them in Jacob, and scatter them in Israel.
8
"Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise; thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
9
Judah is a lion's whelp; from the prey, my son, thou art gone up. He stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
10
The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come; and unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.
11
Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine, he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes.
12
His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
13
"Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea; and he shall be for a haven of ships, and his border shall be unto Sidon.

3
from twenty years old and upward, all who are able to go forth to war in Israel. Thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.

And Moses and Aaron took these men who are expressly named.
18
And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month; and they declared their pedigrees according to their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward by head count.

33
those who were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand and five hundred.
34
Of the children of Manasseh, by their generations, according to their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go forth to war:

44
These are those who were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men; each one was for the house of his fathers.
45
So were all those who were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go forth to war in Israel,
46
even all those who were numbered were six hundred and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.
47
But the Levites, according to the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.
48
For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,
49
"Only the tribe of Levi shalt thou not number, neither take the count of them among the children of Israel;
50
but thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof and over all things that belong to it. They shall bear the tabernacle and all the vessels thereof, and they shall minister unto it and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.
51
And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up; and the stranger who cometh nigh shall be put to death.
52
And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.
53
But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel; and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony."
54
And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses; so did they.
Numbers 10:1-36
1
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying,
2
"Make thee two trumpets of silver. Of a whole piece shalt thou make them, that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly and for the journeying of the camps.
3
And when they shall blow with them, all the assembly shall assemble themselves to thee at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
4
And if they blow but with one trumpet, then the princes, who are heads of the thousands of Israel, shall gather themselves unto thee.
5
When ye blow an alarm, then the camps that lie on the east parts shall go forward.
6
When ye blow an alarm the second time, then the camps that lie on the south side shall take their journey. They shall blow an alarm for their journeys.
7
But when the congregation is to be gathered together, ye shall blow, but ye shall not sound an alarm.
8
And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance for ever throughout your generations.
9
And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy who oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.
10
Also in the day of your gladness and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings, that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God."
11
And it came to pass on the twentieth day of the second month, in the second year, that the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle of the testimony.
12
And the children of Israel took their journeys out of the Wilderness of Sinai, and the cloud rested in the Wilderness of Paran.
13
And they first took their journey according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.
14
In the first place went the standard of the camp of the children of Judah according to their armies; and over his host was Nahshon the son of Amminadab.
15
And over the host of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethaneel the son of Zuar.
16

19

29
And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses' father-in-law: "We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, `I will give it to you.' Come thou with us, and we will do thee good; for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel."
30
And he said unto him, "I will not go, but I will depart to mine own land and to my kindred."
31
And he said, "Leave us not, I pray thee, inasmuch as thou knowest how we are to encamp in the wilderness, and thou mayest be to us instead of eyes.
32
And it shall be, if thou go with us, yea, it shall be that what goodness the LORD shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee."
33
And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days' journey, and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days' journey to search out a resting place for them.
34
And the cloud of the LORD was upon them by day when they went out of the camp.
35
And it came to pass, when the ark moved forward, that Moses said, "Rise up, LORD, and let Thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate Thee flee before Thee."
36
And when it rested he said, "Return, O LORD, unto the many thousands of Israel."

3
And Moses and Eleazar the priest spoke with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan near Jericho, saying,

And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah for a wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister of Laban the Syrian.
with his
Genesis 30:21
And afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah [that is, Judgment].
Genesis 34:1-31
1
And Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she bore unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.
2
And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and defiled her.
3
And his soul cleaved unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel and spoke kindly unto the damsel.
4
And Shechem spoke unto his father Hamor, saying, "Get me this damsel for a wife."
5
And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter. Now his sons were with his cattle in the field, and Jacob held his peace until they had come.
6
And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to commune with him.
7
And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it; and the men were grieved and they were very wroth, because he had wrought folly in Israel by lying with Jacob's daughter, which thing ought not to be done.
8
And Hamor communed with them, saying, "The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter. I pray you give her to him for a wife;
9
and make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us, and take our daughters unto you.
10
And ye shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you. Dwell and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein."
11
And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, "Let me find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me, I will give.
12
Ask me ever so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as ye shall say unto me; but give me the damsel for a wife."
13
And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father deceitfully, and said -- because he had defiled Dinah their sister"
14
and they said unto them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who is uncircumcised, for that would be a reproach unto us.
15
But in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we are, that every male of you be circumcised,
16
then will we give our daughters unto you; and we will take your daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become one people.
17
But if ye will not hearken unto us to be circumcised, then will we take our daughter and we will be gone."
18
And their words pleased Hamor, and Shechem, Hamor's son.
19
And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had delight in Jacob's daughter; and he was more honorable than all the house of his father.
20
And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city, and communed with the men of their city, saying,
21
"These men are peaceable with us. Therefore let them dwell in the land and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for them. Let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give them our daughters.
22
Only herein will the men consent unto us to dwell with us, to be one people: if every male among us be circumcised, as they are circumcised.
23
Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be ours? Only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us."
24
And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all who went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all who went out of the gate of his city.
25
And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly and slew all the males.
26
And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went out.
27
The sons of Jacob came upon the slain and despoiled the city, because they had defiled their sister.
28
They took their sheep and their oxen and their asses, and that which was in the city, and that which was in the field;
29
and all their wealth, and all their little ones and their wives took they captive, and despoiled even all that was in the house.
30
And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, "Ye have troubled me to make me a stench among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites. And I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house."
31
And they said, "Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?"
