Numbers 3
NMV
3
1These also [are] the generations of Aharon [Bright, Very High] and Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] in the day [that] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke with Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] in mount Sinai.
2And these [are] the names of the sons of Aharon [Bright, Very High]; Nadav [Generous] the firstborn, and Avihu [he is my father], El’azar [God has helped], and Itamar [Coast of Palms].
3These [are] the names of the sons of Aharon [Bright, Very High], the priests which were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest’s office.
4And Nadav [Generous] and Avihu [he is my father] died before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), when they offered strange fire before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and El’azar [God has helped] and Itamar [Coast of Palms] ministered in the priest’s office in the sight of Aharon [Bright, Very High] their father.
5And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying,
6Bring the tribe of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner] near, and present them before Aharon [Bright, Very High] the priest, that they may minister unto him.
7And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the tabernacle of the congregation, to do the service of the tabernacle.
8And they shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the charge of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], to do the service of the tabernacle.
9And youi shall give the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] unto Aharon [Bright, Very High] and to his sons: they [are] wholly given unto him out of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
10And youi shall appoint Aharon [Bright, Very High] and his sons, and they shall wait on their priest’s office: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.
11And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying,
12And I, behold, I have taken the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] from among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] instead of all the firstborn that opens the womb among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: therefore the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall be my;
13Because all the firstborn [are] my; [for] on the day that I struck all the firstborn in the land of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] I consecrated unto me all the firstborn in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], both man and beast: my shall they be: I [am] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
14And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] in the wilderness of Sinai, saying,
15Number the children of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner] after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shall youi number them.
16And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] numbered them according to the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), as he was commanded.
17And these were the sons of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner] by their names; Gershon [Exile], and K’hat [assembly, congregation], and M’rari [Bitter].
18And these [are] the names of the sons of Gershon [Exile] by their families; Livni [White], and Shime’i [Fame].
19And the sons of K’hat [assembly, congregation] by their families; ‘Amram [exalted people], and Yitz’har [Oil], Hevron [Seat of Association], and Uzziel [My Strength is God].
20And the sons of M’rari [Bitter] by their families; Machli [Sick], and Mushi [Yielding]. These [are] the families of the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] according to the house of their fathers.
21Of Gershon [Exile] [was] the family of the Livni [White Ones], and the family of the Shim’i [Famous Ones]: these [are] the families of the Gershuni [Exiled Ones].
22Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, [even] those that were numbered of them [were] seven thousand and five hundred.
23The families of the Gershuni [Exiled Ones] shall pitch behind the tabernacle westward.
24And the chief of the house of the father of the Gershuni [Exiled Ones] [shall be] Elyasaf [My God has Added] the son of La’el [Belonging to God].
25And the charge of the sons of Gershon [Exile] in the tabernacle of the congregation [shall be] the tabernacle, and the tent, the covering thereof, and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
26And the hangings of the court, and the curtain for the door of the court, which [is] by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and the cords of it for all the service thereof.
27And of K’hat [assembly, congregation] [was] the family of the Amrami, and the family of the Yitz’hari, and the family of the Khevroni, and the family of the ‘Uzi’el [God is My Strength]: these [are] the families of the K’hati.
28In the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, [were] eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the sanctuary.
29The families of the sons of K’hat [assembly, congregation] shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle southward.
30And the chief of the house of the father of the families of the K’hati [shall be] Elitzafan [My God has Protected] the son of Uzziel [My Strength is God].
31And their charge [shall be] the ark, and the table, and the candlestick, and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary which they minister, and the hanging, and all the service thereof.
32And El’azar [God has helped] the son of Aharon [Bright, Very High] the priest [shall be] chief over the chief of the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to], [and have] the oversight of them that keep the charge of the sanctuary.
33Of M’rari [Bitter] [was] the family of the Machli, and the family of the Mushi: these [are] the families of M’rari [Bitter].
34And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, [were] six thousand and two hundred.
35And the chief of the house of the father of the families of M’rari [Bitter] [was] Tzuri’el [My Rock is God] the son of Avichayil [Father of Strength]: [these] shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward.
36And [under] the custody and charge of the sons of M’rari [Bitter] [shall be] the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the vessels thereof, and all that serves thereto,
37And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.
38But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, [even] before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, [shall be] Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], and Aharon [Bright, Very High] and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.
39All that were numbered of the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to], which Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] and Aharon [Bright, Very High] numbered at the commandment of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), throughout their families, all the males from a month old and upward, [were] twenty and two thousand.
40And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], Number all the firstborn of the males of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names.
41And youi shall take the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] for me (I [am] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate)) instead of all the firstborn among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; and the cattle of the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
42And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] numbered, as the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded him, all the firstborn among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
43And all the firstborn males by the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.
44And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying,
45Take the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] instead of all the firstborn among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and the cattle of the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] instead of their cattle; and the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall be my: I [am] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
46And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], which are more than the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to];
47youi shall even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after the shekel of the sanctuary shall youi take [them] (the shekel [is] twenty gerahs)
48And youi shall give the money, which the over and above (what is left over) of them is to be redeemed, unto Aharon [Bright, Very High] and to his sons.
49And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] took the redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to]:
50Of the firstborn of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] took he the money; a thousand three hundred and threescore and five [shekels], after the shekel of the sanctuary:
51And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aharon [Bright, Very High] and to his sons, according to the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), as the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters].
