Numbers Chapter 18 - King James Strong Number Version

1
And the LORD [H3068] said [H0559] unto Aaron, [H0175] Thou and thy sons [H1121] and thy father's [H0001] house [H1004] with thee shall bear [H5375] the iniquity [H5771] of the sanctuary: [H4720] and thou and thy sons [H1121] with thee shall bear [H5375] the iniquity [H5771] of your priesthood. [H3550]
2
And thy brethren [H0251] also of the tribe [H4294] of Levi, [H3878] the tribe [H7626] of thy father, [H0001] bring [H7126] thou with thee, that they may be joined [H3867] unto thee, and minister [H8334] unto thee: but thou and thy sons [H1121] with thee [shall minister] before [H6440] the tabernacle [H0168] of witness. [H5715]
3
And they shall keep [H8104] thy charge, [H4931] and the charge [H4931] of all the tabernacle: [H0168] only they shall not come nigh [H7126] the vessels [H3627] of the sanctuary [H6944] and the altar, [H4196] that neither they, nor ye also, die. [H4191]
4
And they shall be joined [H3867] unto thee, and keep [H8104] the charge [H4931] of the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation, [H4150] for all the service [H5656] of the tabernacle: [H0168] and a stranger [H2114] shall not come nigh [H7126] unto you.
5
And ye shall keep [H8104] the charge [H4931] of the sanctuary, [H6944] and the charge [H4931] of the altar: [H4196] that there be no wrath [H7110] any more upon the children [H1121] of Israel. [H3478]
6
And I, behold, I have taken [H3947] your brethren [H0251] the Levites [H3881] from among [H8432] the children [H1121] of Israel: [H3478] to you [they are] given [H5414] [as] a gift [H4979] for the LORD, [H3068] to do [H5647] the service [H5656] of the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation. [H4150]
7
Therefore thou and thy sons [H1121] with thee shall keep [H8104] your priest's office [H3550] for everything [H1697] of the altar, [H4196] and within [H1004] the vail; [H6532] and ye shall serve: [H5647] I have given [H5414] your priest's office [H3550] [unto you] as a service [H5656] of gift: [H4979] and the stranger [H2114] that cometh nigh [H7131] shall be put to death. [H4191]
8
And the LORD [H3068] spake [H1696] unto Aaron, [H0175] Behold, I also have given [H5414] thee the charge [H4931] of mine heave offerings [H8641] of all the hallowed things [H6944] of the children [H1121] of Israel; [H3478] unto thee have I given [H5414] them by reason of the anointing, [H4888] and to thy sons, [H1121] by an ordinance [H2706] for ever. [H5769]
9
This shall be thine of the most [H6944] holy things, [H6944] [reserved] from the fire: [H0784] every oblation [H7133] of theirs, every meat offering [H4503] of theirs, and every sin offering [H2403] of theirs, and every trespass offering [H0817] of theirs, which they shall render [H7725] unto me, [shall be] most [H6944] holy [H6944] for thee and for thy sons. [H1121]
10
In the most [H6944] holy [H6944] [place] shalt thou eat [H0398] it; every male [H2145] shall eat [H0398] it: it shall be holy [H6944] unto thee.
11
And this [is] thine; the heave offering [H8641] of their gift, [H4976] with all the wave offerings [H8573] of the children [H1121] of Israel: [H3478] I have given [H5414] them unto thee, and to thy sons [H1121] and to thy daughters [H1323] with thee, by a statute [H2706] for ever: [H5769] every one that is clean [H2889] in thy house [H1004] shall eat [H0398] of it.
12
All the best [H2459] of the oil, [H3323] and all the best [H2459] of the wine, [H8492] and of the wheat, [H1715] the firstfruits [H7225] of them which they shall offer [H5414] unto the LORD, [H3068] them have I given [H5414] thee.
13
[And] whatsoever is first ripe [H1061] in the land, [H0776] which they shall bring [H0935] unto the LORD, [H3068] shall be thine; every one that is clean [H2889] in thine house [H1004] shall eat [H0398] [of] it.
14
Every thing devoted [H2764] in Israel [H3478] shall be thine.
15
Every thing that openeth [H6363] the matrix [H7358] in all flesh, [H1320] which they bring [H7126] unto the LORD, [H3068] [whether it be] of men [H0120] or beasts, [H0929] shall be thine: nevertheless the firstborn [H1060] of man [H0120] shalt thou surely [H6299] redeem, [H6299] and the firstling [H1060] of unclean [H2931] beasts [H0929] shalt thou redeem. [H6299]
16
And those that are to be redeemed [H6299] from a month [H2320] old [H1121] shalt thou redeem, [H6299] according to thine estimation, [H6187] for the money [H3701] of five [H2568] shekels, [H8255] after the shekel [H8255] of the sanctuary, [H6944] which [is] twenty [H6242] gerahs. [H1626]
17
But the firstling [H1060] of a cow, [H7794] or the firstling [H1060] of a sheep, [H3775] or the firstling [H1060] of a goat, [H5795] thou shalt not redeem; [H6299] they [are] holy: [H6944] thou shalt sprinkle [H2236] their blood [H1818] upon the altar, [H4196] and shalt burn [H6999] their fat [H2459] [for] an offering made by fire, [H0801] for a sweet [H5207] savour [H7381] unto the LORD. [H3068]
18
And the flesh [H1320] of them shall be thine, as the wave [H8573] breast [H2373] and as the right [H3225] shoulder [H7785] are thine.
19
All the heave offerings [H8641] of the holy things, [H6944] which the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] offer [H7311] unto the LORD, [H3068] have I given [H5414] thee, and thy sons [H1121] and thy daughters [H1323] with thee, by a statute [H2706] for ever: [H5769] it [is] a covenant [H1285] of salt [H4417] for ever [H5769] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] unto thee and to thy seed [H2233] with thee.
20
And the LORD [H3068] spake [H0559] unto Aaron, [H0175] Thou shalt have no inheritance [H5157] in their land, [H0776] neither shalt thou have any part [H2506] among [H8432] them: I [am] thy part [H2506] and thine inheritance [H5159] among [H8432] the children [H1121] of Israel. [H3478]
21
And, behold, I have given [H5414] the children [H1121] of Levi [H3878] all the tenth [H4643] in Israel [H3478] for an inheritance, [H5159] for [H2500] their service [H5656] which they serve, [H5647] [even] the service [H5656] of the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation. [H4150]
22
Neither must the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] henceforth [H5750] come nigh [H7126] the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation, [H4150] lest they bear [H5375] sin, [H2399] and die. [H4191]
23
But the Levites [H3881] shall do [H5647] the service [H5656] of the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation, [H4150] and they shall bear [H5375] their iniquity: [H5771] [it shall be] a statute [H2708] for ever [H5769] throughout your generations, [H1755] that among [H8432] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] they have [H5157] no inheritance. [H5159]
24
But the tithes [H4643] of the children [H1121] of Israel, [H3478] which they offer [H7311] [as] an heave offering [H8641] unto the LORD, [H3068] I have given [H5414] to the Levites [H3881] to inherit: [H5159] therefore I have said [H0559] unto them, Among [H8432] the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] they shall have [H5157] no inheritance. [H5159]
25
And the LORD [H3068] spake [H1696] unto Moses, [H4872] saying, [H0559]
26
Thus speak [H1696] unto the Levites, [H3881] and say [H0559] unto them, When ye take [H3947] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] the tithes [H4643] which I have given [H5414] you from them for your inheritance, [H5159] then ye shall offer up [H7311] an heave offering [H8641] of it for the LORD, [H3068] [even] a tenth [H4643] [part] of the tithe. [H4643]
27
And [this] your heave offering [H8641] shall be reckoned [H2803] unto you, as though [it were] the corn [H1715] of the threshingfloor, [H1637] and as the fulness [H4395] of the winepress. [H3342]
28
Thus ye also shall offer [H7311] an heave offering [H8641] unto the LORD [H3068] of all your tithes, [H4643] which ye receive [H3947] of the children [H1121] of Israel; [H3478] and ye shall give [H5414] thereof the LORD'S [H3068] heave offering [H8641] to Aaron [H0175] the priest. [H3548]
29
Out of all your gifts [H4979] ye shall offer [H7311] every heave offering [H8641] of the LORD, [H3068] of all the best [H2459] thereof, [even] the hallowed part [H4720] thereof out of it.
30
Therefore thou shalt say [H0559] unto them, When ye have heaved [H7311] the best [H2459] thereof from it, then it shall be counted [H2803] unto the Levites [H3881] as the increase [H8393] of the threshingfloor, [H1637] and as the increase [H8393] of the winepress. [H3342]
31
And ye shall eat [H0398] it in every place, [H4725] ye and your households: [H1004] for it [is] your reward [H7939] for [H2500] your service [H5656] in the tabernacle [H0168] of the congregation. [H4150]
32
And ye shall bear [H5375] no sin [H2399] by reason of it, when ye have heaved [H7311] from it the best [H2459] of it: neither shall ye pollute [H2490] the holy things [H6944] of the children [H1121] of Israel, [H3478] lest ye die. [H4191]
