Numbers 32
NMV
32
1Now the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] and the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] had a very great multitude of cattle: and when they saw the land of Ya’zer [Helped], and the land of Gil’ad [Rocky Region], that, behold, the place [was] a place for cattle;
2The children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] and the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] came and spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], and to El’azar [God has helped] the priest, and unto the princes of the congregation, saying,
3‘Atarot [Crowns], and Divon [Wasting], and Ya’zer [Helped], and Nimrah [Pure], and Heshbon [Stronghold], and El’aleh [God is Ascending], and S’vam [Fragrance], and Nevo [Prophet], and Be’on [Indwelling],
4 [Even] the country which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) struck before the congregation of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], [is] a land for cattle, and youi servants have cattle:
5For what reason, said they, if we have found grace in youi sight, let this land be given unto youi servants for a possession, [and] bring us not over Yarden [Descender].
6And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] said unto the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] and to the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son], Shall your brethren go to war, and shall you2f sit here?
7And wherefore discourage you2f the heart of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] from going over into the land which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has given them?
8Thus did your fathers, when I sent them from Kadesh [Holy] -Barnea [Holy] to see the land.
9For when they went up unto the valley of Eshkol [Cluster], and saw the land, they discouraged the heart of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], that they should not go into the land which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) had given them.
10And the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] anger was kindled the same time, and he swore, saying,
11Surely none of the men that came up out of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place], from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I swore unto Avraham [Exalted Father], unto Yitz’khak [Laughter], and unto Ya’akov [Heal of God]; because they have not wholly followed me:
12Save Kalev [Dog] the son of Y’funeh [He Will Face] the K’nizi [The Sons of Kenez], and Y’hoshua [Yehovah is Salvation] the son of Nun [Posterity]: for they have wholly followed the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
13And the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] anger was kindled against Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), was consumed.
14And, behold, you2f are risen up in your fathers’ stead, an increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) toward Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
15For if you2f turn away from after him, he will yet again leave them in the wilderness; and you2f shall destroy all this people.
16And they came near unto him, and said, We will build sheepfolds here for our cattle, and cities for our little ones:
17But we ourselves will go ready armed before the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], until we have brought them unto their place: and our little ones shall dwell in the fenced cities because of the inhabitants of the land.
18We will not return unto our houses, until the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] have inherited every man his inheritance.
19For we will not inherit with them on yonder side Yarden [Descender], or forward; because our inheritance is fallen to us on this side Yarden [Descender] eastward.
20And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] said unto them, If you2f will do this thing, if you2f will go armed before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) to war,
21And will go all of you armed over Yarden [Descender] before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), until he has driven out his enemies from before him,
22And the land be subdued before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): then afterward you2f shall return, and be guiltless before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and before Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; and this land shall be your possession before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
23But if you2f will not do so, behold, you2f have sinned against the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): and be sure your sin will find you out.
24Build you cities for your little ones, and folds for your sheep; and do that which has proceeded out of your mouth.
25And the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] and the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] spoke unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying, You1s servants will do as my lord commands.
26Our little ones, our wives, our flocks, and all our cattle, shall be there in the cities of Gil’ad [Rocky Region]:
27But youi servants will pass over, every man armed for war, before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) to battle, as my lord says.
28So concerning them Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] commanded El’azar [God has helped] the priest, and Y’hoshua [Yehovah is Salvation] the son of Nun [Posterity], and the chief fathers of the tribes of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]:
29And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] said unto them, If the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] and the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] will pass with you over Yarden [Descender], every man armed to battle, before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and the land shall be subdued before you; then you2f shall give them the land of Gil’ad [Rocky Region] for a possession:
30But if they will not pass over with you armed, they shall have possessions among you in the land of Kena’an [Merchant].
31And the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] and the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] answered, saying, As the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has said unto youi servants, so will we do.
32We will pass over armed before the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) into the land of Kena’an [Merchant], that the possession of our inheritance on this side Yarden [Descender] [may be] ours.
33And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] gave unto them, [even] to the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort], and to the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son], and unto half the tribe of M’nasheh [Causing to Forget] the son of Yosef [(God) He Shall Add], the kingdom of Sichon [Warrior] king of the Emori [Highlanders], and the kingdom of ‘Og [Long-necked] king of Bashan [Fruitful], the land, with the cities thereof in the coasts, [even] the cities of the country round about.
34And the children of Gad [Good Fortune with Troublesome Effort] built Divon [Wasting], and ‘Atarot [Crowns], and ‘Aeo’er [Ruins],
35And ‘Artrot-Shofan [Crowns in Their Rapine], and Ya’zer [Helped], and Yogbehah [Lofty],
36And Beit-Nimrah [House of the Leopard], and Beit-Haran [mountaineer] [House of the Joyful Shouter], fenced cities: and folds for sheep.
37And the children of Re’uven [Behold a Son] built Heshbon [Stronghold], and El’aleh [God is Ascending], and Kiryatayim [Two Cities],
38And Nevo [Prophet], and Ba’al-M’on [lord of the Habitation], (their names being changed,) and Sivmah [Fragrance]: and gave other names unto the cities which they built.
39And the children of Makhir [Sold] the son of M’nasheh [Causing to Forget] went to Gil’ad [Rocky Region], and took it, and dispossessed the Emori [Rebellious Highlanders] which [was] in it.
40And Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] gave Gil’ad [Rocky Region] unto Makhir [Sold] the son of M’nasheh [Causing to Forget]; and he dwelt in it.
41And Ya’ir [He Enlightens] the son of M’nasheh [Causing to Forget] went and took the small to (to do entirely, do wholly)wns thereof, and called them Havot-Ya’ir [Villages of the Enlighteners].
42And Novach [Barking] went and took K’nat [Possession], and the villages thereof, and called it Novach [Barking], after his own name.
