Aaron’s Rod Buds1 ▼
▼ Ch 17:16 in HebThen the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, and get from them a rod for each father’s household: twelve rods, from all their leaders according to their fathers’ households. You shall write each name on his rod, 3 and write Aaron’s name on the rod of Levi; for there is one rod for the head of each of their fathers’ households. 4 “You shall then deposit them in the tent of meeting in front of b the testimony, where I meet with you. 5 “It will come about that the rod of c the man whom I choose will sprout. Thus I will lessen from upon Myself the grumblings of the sons of Israel, who are grumbling against you.” 6 Moses therefore spoke to the sons of Israel, and all their leaders gave him a rod apiece, for each leader according to their fathers’ households, twelve rods, with the rod of Aaron among their rods. 7 So Moses deposited the rods before the Lord in d the tent of the testimony. 8 Now on the next day Moses went into the tent of the testimony; and behold e the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi had sprouted and put forth buds and produced blossoms, and it bore ripe almonds. 9 Moses then brought out all the rods from the presence of the Lord to all the sons of Israel; and they looked, and each man took his rod. 10 But the Lord said to Moses, “Put back the rod of Aaron f before the testimony ▼
▼ Lit for preservingto be kept as a sign against the ▼
▼ Lit sons of rebellion, i rebels, that you may put an end to their grumblings against Me, so that they will not die.” 11 Thus Moses did; just as the Lord had commanded him, so he did. 12 Then the sons of Israel spoke to Moses, saying j “Behold, we perish, we are dying, we are all dying! 13 k “Everyone who comes near, who comes near to the tabernacle of the Lord, must die. Are we to perish completely?”
