31:1 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
31:2 Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites: afterward shall you be gathered to your people.
31:4 Of every tribe one thousand, throughout all the tribes of Israel, shall you send to the war.
31:5 So there were delivered, out of the thousands of Israel, a thousand of every tribe, twelve thousand armed for war.
31:6 Moses sent them, one thousand of every tribe, to the war, them and Phinehas the son of Eleazar the priest, to the war, with the vessels of the sanctuary and the trumpets for the alarm in his hand.
31:7 They warred against Midian, as Yahweh commanded Moses; and they killed every male.
31:9 The children of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their little ones; and all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods, they took for a prey.
31:10 All their cities in the places in which they lived, and all their encampments, they burnt with fire.
31:11 They took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of man and of animal.
31:12 They brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, to Moses, and to Eleazar the priest, and to the congregation of the children of Israel, to the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by the Jordan at Jericho.
31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against Yahweh in the matter of Peor, and so the plague was among the congregation of Yahweh.
31:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman who has known man by lying with him.
31:18 But all the girls, who have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
31:22 however the gold, and the silver, the brass, the iron, the tin, and the lead,
31:23 everything that may abide the fire, you shall make to go through the fire, and it shall be clean; nevertheless it shall be purified with the water for impurity: and all that doesn`t withstand the fire you shall make to go through the water.
31:25 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
31:28 Levy a tribute to Yahweh of the men of war who went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, [both] of the persons, and of the oxen, and of the donkeys, and of the flocks:
31:29 take it of their half, and give it to Eleazar the priest, for Yahweh`s heave-offering.
31:30 Of the children of Israel`s half, you shall take one drawn out of every fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the donkeys, and of the flocks, [even] of all the cattle, and give them to the Levites, who keep the charge of the tent of Yahweh.
31:33 and seventy-two thousand oxen,
31:34 and seventy-one thousand donkeys,
31:35 and thirty-two thousand persons in all, of the women who had not known man by lying with him.
31:37 and Yahweh`s tribute of the sheep was six hundred seventy-five.
31:38 The oxen were thirty-six thousand; of which Yahweh`s tribute was seventy-two.
31:39 The donkeys were thirty thousand five hundred; of which Yahweh`s tribute was sixty-one.
31:40 The persons were sixteen thousand; of whom Yahweh`s tribute was thirty-two persons.
31:43 (now the congregation`s half was three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep,
31:44 and thirty-six thousand oxen,
31:45 and thirty thousand five hundred donkeys,
31:46 and sixteen thousand persons),
31:47 even of the children of Israel`s half, Moses took one drawn out of every fifty, both of man and of animal, and gave them to the Levites, who kept the charge of the tent of Yahweh; as Yahweh commanded Moses.
31:50 We have brought Yahweh`s offering, what every man has gotten, of jewels of gold, ankle-chains, and bracelets, signet-rings, ear-rings, and armlets, to make atonement for our souls before Yahweh.
31:52 All the gold of the heave-offering that they offered up to Yahweh, of the captains of thousands, and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred fifty shekels.
31:53 ([For] the men of war had taken booty, every man for himself.)
