Numbers 1:45-47 So were all those that were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel; even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

And they shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of the congregation and the charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle. And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons. They are wholly given unto him out of the children of Israel.

Numbers 3:11-13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that open the matrix among the children of Israel, therefore the Levites shall be mine; Because all the firstborn are mine, for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast. Mine shall they be. I am the LORD.

Numbers 4:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

Numbers 4:3 From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Numbers 4:15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward, after that, the sons of Kohath.(Kohath was one of the sons of Levi:.Genesis 46:11).shall come to bear it, but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die.(*). These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Numbers 4:23 From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Numbers 5:11-13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside and commit a trespass against him and a man lie with her carnally and it be hid from the eyes of her husband and be kept close and she be defiled and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner.

Numbers 5:14,15 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him and he be jealous of his wife and she be defiled.(had sex with some other man).or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him and he be jealous of his wife and she be not defiled, then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal. He shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon, for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

Numbers 5:16-21 And the priest shall bring her near and set her before the LORD and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take and put it into the water Then the priest shall set the woman before the LORD and uncover the woman's head and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causes the curse. Here the priest shall charge.(to direct toward her).her by an oath and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with you and if you have not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of your husband, be you free from this bitter water that causes the curse. But if you have gone aside to another instead of your husband and if you be defiled and some man has lain with you beside your husband, then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make you a curse and an oath among your people, when the LORD does make your thigh to rot and your belly to swell.

Numbers 5:22 And this water that causes the curse shall go into your bowels, to make your belly to swell and your thigh to rot. And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.(a woman knowing her innocence would be glad there was this test so others would also know that she was innocent).

Numbers 5:23-31 And the priest shall write these curses in a book and he shall blot them out with the bitter water. And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causes the curse and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her and become bitter. Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand and shall wave the offering before the LORD and offer it upon the altar. And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof and burn it upon the altar and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water. And when he has made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causes the curse shall enter into her and become bitter and her belly shall swell and her thigh shall rot and the woman shall be a curse among her people. And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean, then she shall be free and shall conceive seed. This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goes aside to another instead of her husband and is defiled or when the spirit of jealousy comes upon him and he be jealous over his wife and shall set the woman before the LORD and the priest shall execute upon her all this law. Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity and this woman shall bear her iniquity.

Numbers 6:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

Numbers 6:2-4 Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD. He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink and shall drink no vinegar of wine or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

Numbers 6:5-8 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head; until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separates himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. All the days that he separates himself unto the LORD he shall come at no dead body. He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die, because the consecration of his God is upon his head. All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD.

Numbers 6:9-19 And if any man die very suddenly by him and he hath defiled the head of his consecration, then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it. And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, and make an atonement for him, for that he sinned by the dead and shall hallow his head that same day. And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his separation and shall bring a lamb of the first year for a trespass offering, but the days that were before shall be lost, because his separation was defiled. And this is the law of the Nazarite, when the days of his separation are fulfilled. He shall be brought unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And he shall offer his offering unto the LORD, one he lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt offering and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin offering and one ram without blemish for peace offerings, And a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil and wafers of unleavened bread anointed with oil and their meat offering and their drink offerings. And the priest shall bring them before the LORD and shall offer his sin offering and his burnt offering and he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread. The priest shall offer also his meat offering and his drink offering. And the Nazarite shall shave the head of his separation at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation and shall take the hair of the head of his separation and put it in the fire which is under the sacrifice of the peace offerings. And the priest shall take the sodden shoulder of the ram and one unleavened cake out of the basket and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the Nazarite, after the hair of his separation is shaven.

Numbers 6:20 And the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. This is holy for the priest, with the wave breast and heave shoulder and after that the Nazarite may drink wine.

Numbers 6:21 This is the law of the Nazarite who has vowed and of his offering unto the LORD for his separation, beside that that his hand shall get, according to the vow which he vowed, so he must do after the law of his separation.

Numbers 6:23-26 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise you shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee and keep thee. The LORD make his face shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee. The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee and give thee peace.

Numbers 6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel and I will bless them.

Numbers 7:8 And four wagons and eight oxen he gave unto the sons of Merari, according unto their service, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

Numbers 7:9 But unto the sons of Kohath he gave none, because the service of the sanctuary belonging unto them was that they should bear upon their shoulders.

Numbers 7:89 And when Moses was gone into the tabernacle of the congregation to speak with him, then he heard the voice of one speaking unto him from off the mercy seat that was upon the ark of testimony, from between the two cherubims and he spake unto him.

Numbers 8:19 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation and to make an atonement for the children of Israel, that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come near unto the sanctuary.

Numbers 9:5 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai. According to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.

Numbers 9:9,10 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto the LORD.

Numbers 9:15 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.

Numbers 10:29 And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel.(also called Reuel:.Exodus 2:18).the Midianite, Moses' father in law.(actually Moses 'brother in law', as the original, only signifies any relation by what was known as a marriage back then), We are journeying unto the place of which the LORD said, I will give it you. Come thou with us and we will do thee good, for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.

Numbers 10:33 And they departed from the mount of the LORD three days' journey and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them in the three days' journey, to search out a resting place for them.

Numbers 11:1-3 And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD and the LORD heard it and his anger was kindled and the fire of the LORD burnt among them and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. And the people cried unto Moses and when Moses prayed unto the LORD, the fire was quenched. And he called the name of the place Taberah.(means 'a burning'), because the fire of the LORD burnt among them.

Numbers 11:4 And the mixed multitude.(Exodus 12:37,38).that was among them fell a lusting.(they so badly wanted the food which they are back in Egyptian captivity).and the children of Israel also wept again and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat.(they were constantly complaining; it almost drove Moses nuts)

Numbers 11:5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely, the cucumbers and the melons and the leeks and the onions and the garlic. 

Numbers 11:6 But now our soul is dried away. There is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

Numbers 11:7-9 And the manna was as coriander seed and the color thereof as the color of bdellium. And the people went about and gathered it and ground it in mills or beat it in a mortar and baked it in pans and made cakes of it and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil. And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.

Numbers 11:10-15 Then Moses heard the people weep.(original 'bewail', 'lament', 'complain with tears').throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent and the anger of the LORD was kindled greatly because of this. Moses also was displeased with it all. And Moses said unto the LORD, Why have you afflicted your servant? and why have I not found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of all this people upon me? Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that you should say unto me, Carry them in your bosom as a nursing father bears the sucking child, unto the land which you sware unto their fathers? Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh that we may eat. I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. And if you deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favor in your sight and let me not see my wretchedness.(Rotherman Translation has it:."But if in this way you are going to deal with me, slay me, I beseech you, slay if I have found favor in your eyes and let me not see my grief.").

Numbers 11:16,17 And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the elders of the people and officers over them and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with you. And I will come down and talk with you there. And I will take of the spirit which is upon you and will put it upon them and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, that you bear it not alone..(God saw that Moses was emotionally upset about all this and came up with a solution)

Numbers 11:18-24 And say you unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow and you shall eat flesh. For you have wept in the ears of the LORD, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? For it was well with us in Egypt. Therefore the LORD will give you flesh and you shall eat. You shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days; But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils and it be loathsome unto you. Because that you have despised the LORD which is among you and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt? And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand footmen and you have said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month. Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them? Or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them? And the LORD said unto Moses, Is the LORD'S hand been shortened? You shall see now whether my word shall come to pass unto you or not. And Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people and set them round about the tabernacle.

Numbers 11:25,26 And the LORD came down in a cloud and spake unto him and took of the spirit that was upon him and gave it unto the seventy elders. And it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied and did not cease. But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad and the name of the other Medad. And the spirit rested upon them and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle. And they prophesied in the camp.

Numbers 11:27-29 And there ran a young man and told Moses and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp. And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men.(a young man assisting Moses felt that Eldad and Medad were out to usurp Moses leadership), answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them. And Moses said unto him, Envy you for my sake?.(do you think I'm jealous over what they are doing?).Would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!.(Moses was saying that he wished all the people would be the same as Eldad and Medad, perhaps then it would not be such a burden for him)

Numbers 11:33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people and the LORD smote the people with a very great plague.

Numbers 12:1,2 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married, for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, Has the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? Has he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it..(they had a snotty.attitude of superiority)

Numbers 12:3 Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.

Numbers 12:4,5 And the LORD spake suddenly unto Moses and unto Aaron and unto Miriam, Come out you three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out. And the LORD came down in the pillar of the cloud and stood in the door of the tabernacle and called Aaron and Miriam and they both came forth.

Numbers 12:6 And he said, Hear now my words. If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision and will speak unto him in a dream..(about dreams)

Numbers 12:7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.

Numbers 12:8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even face to face and not in dark speeches and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold. Wherefore then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

Numbers 12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them and he departed.

Numbers 12:10-12 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow and Aaron looked upon Miriam and behold, she was leprous. And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech you, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly and wherein we have sinned. Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he comes out of his mother's womb.

Numbers 12:13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech you.

Numbers 12:14-16 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? Let her be shut out from the camp seven days and after that let her be received in again. And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again. And afterward the people removed from Hazeroth and pitched in the wilderness of Paran.
