The Twelve Rods1 And the lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the sons of Israel! And take from them a rod! a rod according to the houses of the patrimony, from all their rulers, according to the houses of their patrimony -- twelve rods. And for each [2the 3name 1inscribe] upon his rod! 3 And the name of Aaron you shall inscribe upon the rod of Levi. For it is [2rod 1one] according to the tribe of the house of their patrimony. 4 And you shall put them in the tent of the testimony, over against the testimony, in which I will be made known to you there. 5 And it shall be the man who ever I should choose him, his rod shall sprout forth. And I will remove from you the grumbling of the sons of Israel, as much as they grumble against you. 6 And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel; and [4gave 5to him 1all 2the 3rulers] their rod -- to the [2ruler 1one] [2rod 1one], according to the ruler, according to the houses of their patrimony -- twelve rods. And the rod of Aaron was in the midst of their rods. 7 And Moses put aside the rods before the lord in the tent of the testimony. 8 And it came to pass in the next day, that Moses entered into the tent of the testimony; and behold, [4sprouted 1the 2rod 3of Aaron] for the house of Levi; and it brought forth a bud, and it blossomed a flower, and sprouted walnuts. 9 And Moses brought forth all the rods from in front of the lord to all the sons of Israel. And they saw, and [2took 1each] his rod. 10 And the lord said to Moses, Put aside the rod of Aaron before the testimony! for preservation for a sign to the sons of the unhearing. And let cease their grumbling of me! so in no way they shall die. 11 And [4did 1Moses 2and 3Aaron] as the lord gave orders to Moses -- so they did. 12 And [4said 1the 2sons 3of Israel] to Moses, saying, Behold, we have been completely consumed, we have been destroyed, we all have been uselessly consumed, 13 every one touching the tent of the lord dies. Until completion should we die?
