اَلْعَدَد 3

وَهَذِهِ تَوَالِيدُ هَارُونَ وَمُوسَى يَوْمَ كَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى فِي جَبَلِ سِينَاءَ. ١ 1
Now this is the history of the descendants of Aaron and Moses when Yahweh spoke with Moses on Mount Sinai.
وَهَذِهِ أَسْمَاءُ بَنِي هَارُونَ: نَادَابُ ٱلْبِكْرُ، وَأَبِيهُو وَأَلِعَازَارُ وَإِيثَامَارُ. ٢ 2
The names of Aaron's sons were Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
هَذِهِ أَسْمَاءُ بَنِي هَارُونَ ٱلْكَهَنَةِ ٱلْمَمْسُوحِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ مَلَأَ أَيْدِيَهُمْ لِلْكَهَانَةِ. ٣ 3
These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests who were anointed and who were ordained to serve as priests.
وَلَكِنْ مَاتَ نَادَابُ وَأَبِيهُو أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ عِنْدَمَا قَرَّبَا نَارًا غَرِيبَةً أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ فِي بَرِّيَّةِ سِينَاءَ، وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُمَا بَنُونَ. وَأَمَّا أَلِعَازَارُ وَإِيثَامَارُ فَكَهَنَا أَمَامَ هَارُونَ أَبِيهِمَا. ٤ 4
But Nadab and Abihu fell dead before Yahweh when they offered to him unacceptable fire in the wilderness of Sinai. Nadab and Abihu had no children, so just Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests with Aaron their father.
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى قَائِلًا: ٥ 5
Yahweh spoke to Moses. He said,
«قَدِّمْ سِبْطَ لَاوِي وَأَوْقِفْهُمْ قُدَّامَ هَارُونَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَلْيَخْدِمُوهُ. ٦ 6
“Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest for them to help him.
فَيَحْفَظُونَ شَعَائِرَهُ وَشَعَائِرَ كُلِّ ٱلْجَمَاعَةِ قُدَّامَ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، وَيَخْدِمُونَ خِدْمَةَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ، ٧ 7
They must perform the duties on behalf of Aaron and the whole community before the tent of meeting. They must serve in the tabernacle.
فَيَحْرُسُونَ كُلَّ أَمْتِعَةِ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، وَحِرَاسَةِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَيَخْدِمُونَ خِدْمَةَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ. ٨ 8
They must care for all the furnishings in the tent of meeting, and they must help the tribes of Israel to carry out the tabernacle service.
فَتُعْطِي ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ لِهَارُونَ وَلِبَنِيهِ. إِنَّهُمْ مَوْهُوبُونَ لَهُ هِبَةً مِنْ عِنْدِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٩ 9
You must give the Levites to Aaron and his sons. They are wholly given to help him serve the people of Israel.
وَتُوَكِّلُ هَارُونَ وَبَنِيهِ فَيَحْرُسُونَ كَهَنُوتَهُمْ، وَٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ ٱلَّذِي يَقْتَرِبُ يُقْتَلُ». ١٠ 10
You must appoint Aaron and his sons as priests, but any foreigner who comes near must be put to death.”
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى قَائِلًا: ١١ 11
Yahweh spoke to Moses. He said,
«وَهَا إِنِّي قَدْ أَخَذْتُ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ مِنْ بَيْنِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، بَدَلَ كُلِّ بِكْرٍ فَاتِحِ رَحِمٍ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ فَيَكُونُ ٱللَّاوِيُّونَ لِي. ١٢ 12
“Look, I have taken the Levites from among the people of Israel. I have done this instead of taking each firstborn male who is born among the people of Israel. The Levites belong to me.
لِأَنَّ لِي كُلَّ بِكْرٍ. يَوْمَ ضَرَبْتُ كُلَّ بِكْرٍ فِي أَرْضِ مِصْرَ قَدَّسْتُ لِي كُلَّ بِكْرٍ فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ وَٱلْبَهَائِمِ. لِي يَكُونُونَ. أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ». ١٣ 13
All the firstborn belong to me. On the day that I attacked all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I set apart for myself all the firstborn in Israel, both people and animals. They belong to me. I am Yahweh.”
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى فِي بَرِّيَّةِ سِينَاءَ قَائِلًا: ١٤ 14
Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai. He said,
«عُدَّ بَنِي لَاوِي حَسَبَ بُيُوتِ آبَائِهِمْ وَعَشَائِرِهِمْ. كُلَّ ذَكَرٍ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا تَعُدُّهُمْ». ١٥ 15
“Count the descendants of Levi in each family, in their clans. Count every male who is one month old and older.”
فَعَدَّهُمْ مُوسَى حَسَبَ قَوْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ كَمَا أُمِرَ. ١٦ 16
Moses counted them, following the word of Yahweh, just as he was commanded to do.
وَكَانَ هَؤُلَاءِ بَنِي لَاوِي بِأَسْمَائِهِمْ: جَرْشُونُ وَقَهَاتُ وَمَرَارِي. ١٧ 17
The names of Levi's sons were Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
وَهَذَانِ ٱسْمَا ٱبْنَيْ جَرْشُونَ حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِمَا: لِبْنِي وَشِمْعِي. ١٨ 18
The clans coming from Gershon's sons were Libni and Shimei.
وَبَنُو قَهَاتَ حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِمْ: عَمْرَامُ وَيِصْهَارُ وَحَبْرُونُ وَعُزِّيئِيلُ. ١٩ 19
The clans coming from Kohath's sons were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel.
وَٱبْنَا مَرَارِي حَسَبَ عَشَائِرِهِمَا: مَحْلِي وَمُوشِي. هَذِهِ هِيَ عَشَائِرُ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ حَسَبَ بُيُوتِ آبَائِهِمْ. ٢٠ 20
The clans coming from Merari's sons were Mahli and Mushi. These are the clans of the Levites, listed clan by clan.
لِجَرْشُونَ عَشِيرَةُ ٱللِّبْنِيِّينَ وَعَشِيرَةُ ٱلشِّمْعِيِّينَ. هَذِهِ هِيَ عَشَائِرُ ٱلْجَرْشُونِيِّينَ. ٢١ 21
The clans of the Libnites and the Shimeites come from Gershon. These are the clans of the Gershonites.
ٱلْمَعْدُودُونَ مِنْهُمْ بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ ذَكَرٍ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا، ٱلْمَعْدُودُونَ مِنْهُمْ سَبْعَةُ آلَافٍ وَخَمْسُ مِئَةٍ. ٢٢ 22
All the males from a month old and older were counted, totaling 7,500.
عَشَائِرُ ٱلْجَرْشُونِيِّينَ يَنْزِلُونَ وَرَاءَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ إِلَى ٱلْغَرْبِ، ٢٣ 23
The clans of the Gershonites must camp on the west side of the tabernacle.
وَٱلرَّئِيسُ لِبَيْتِ أَبِي ٱلْجَرْشُونِيِّينَ أَلِيَاسَافُ بْنُ لَايِلَ. ٢٤ 24
Eliasaph son of Lael must lead the clans of the descendants of the Gershonites.
وَحِرَاسَةُ بَنِي جَرْشُونَ فِي خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ: ٱلْمَسْكَنُ، وَٱلْخَيْمَةُ وَغِطَاؤُهَا، وَسَجْفُ بَابِ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، ٢٥ 25
The family of Gershon must care for the tent of meeting including the tabernacle. They must care for the tent, its covering, and the curtain used as the entrance to the tent of meeting.
وَأَسْتَارُ ٱلدَّارِ وَسَجْفُ بَابِ ٱلدَّارِ ٱللَّوَاتِي حَوْلَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ وَحَوْلَ ٱلْمَذْبَحِ مُحِيطًا وَأَطْنَابُهُ مَعَ كُلِّ خِدْمَتِهِ. ٢٦ 26
They must care for the courtyard hangings, the curtain at the courtyard entrance—the courtyard that surrounds the sanctuary and the altar. They must care for the ropes of the tent of meeting and for everything in it.
وَلِقَهَاتَ عَشِيرَةُ ٱلْعَمْرَامِيِّينَ وَعَشِيرَةُ ٱلْيِصْهَارِيِّينَ وَعَشِيرَةُ ٱلْحَبْرُونِيِّينَ وَعَشِيرَةُ ٱلْعُزِّيئِيلِيِّينَ. هَذِهِ عَشَائِرُ ٱلْقَهَاتِيِّينَ، ٢٧ 27
These clans come from Kohath: the clan of the Amramites, the clan of the Izharites, the clan of the Hebronites, and the clan of the Uzzielites. These clans belong to the Kohathites.
بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ ذَكَرٍ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا ثَمَانِيَةُ آلَافٍ وَسِتُّ مِئَةٍ حَارِسِينَ حِرَاسَةَ ٱلْقُدْسِ. ٢٨ 28
8,600 males have been counted aged one month old and older to take care of the things that belong to Yahweh.
وَعَشَائِرُ بَنِي قَهَاتَ يَنْزِلُونَ عَلَى جَانِبِ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ إِلَى ٱلتَّيْمَنِ، ٢٩ 29
The Kohath clans must camp on the south side of the tabernacle.
وَٱلرَّئِيسُ لِبَيْتِ أَبِي عَشِيرَةِ ٱلْقَهَاتِيِّينَ أَلِيصَافَانُ بْنُ عُزِّيئِيلَ. ٣٠ 30
Elizaphan son of Uzziel must lead the clans of the Kohathites.
وَحِرَاسَتُهُمُ ٱلتَّابُوتُ وَٱلْمَائِدَةُ وَٱلْمَنَارَةُ وَٱلْمَذْبَحَانِ وَأَمْتِعَةُ ٱلْقُدْسِ ٱلَّتِي يَخْدِمُونَ بِهَا، وَٱلْحِجَابُ وَكُلُّ خِدْمَتِهِ. ٣١ 31
They must care for the ark, the table, the lampstand, the altars, the holy things that are used in their service, the curtain, and all the work around it.
وَلِرَئِيسِ رُؤَسَاءِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ أَلِعَازَارَ بْنِ هَارُونَ ٱلْكَاهِنِ وَكَالَةُ حُرَّاسِ حِرَاسَةِ ٱلْقُدْسِ. ٣٢ 32
Eleazar son of Aaron the priest must lead the men who lead the Levites. He must supervise the men who care for the holy place.
وَلِمَرَارِي عَشِيرَةُ ٱلْمَحْلِيِّينَ وَعَشِيرَةُ ٱلْمُوشِيِّينَ. هَذِهِ هِيَ عَشَائِرُ مَرَارِي. ٣٣ 33
Two clans have come from Merari: the clan of the Mahlites and the clan of the Mushites. These clans have come from Merari.
وَٱلْمَعْدُودُونَ مِنْهُمْ بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ ذَكَرٍ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا سِتَّةُ آلَافٍ وَمِئَتَانِ، ٣٤ 34
6,200 males have been counted aged one month old and older.
وَٱلرَّئِيسُ لِبَيْتِ أَبِي عَشَائِرِ مَرَارِي صُورِيئِيلُ بْنُ أَبِيَحَايِلَ. يَنْزِلُونَ عَلَى جَانِبِ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ إِلَى ٱلشِّمَالِ. ٣٥ 35
Zuriel son of Abihail must lead the clans of Merari. They must camp on the north side of the tabernacle.
وَوَكَالَةُ حِرَاسَةِ بَنِي مَرَارِي: أَلْوَاحُ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ وَعَوَارِضُهُ وَأَعْمِدَتُهُ وَفُرَضُهُ وَكُلُّ أَمْتِعَتِهِ وَكُلُّ خِدْمَتِهِ، ٣٦ 36
The descendants of Merari must care for the framing of the tabernacle, the crossbars, posts, bases, all the hardware, and everything related to them, including
وَأَعْمِدَةُ ٱلدَّارِ حَوَالَيْهَا وَفُرَضُهَا وَأَوْتَادُهَا وَأَطْنَابُهَا. ٣٧ 37
the pillars and posts of the courtyard that surround the tabernacle, with their sockets, pegs, and ropes.
وَٱلنَّازِلُونَ قُدَّامَ ٱلْمَسْكَنِ إِلَى ٱلشَّرْقِ قُدَّامَ خَيْمَةِ ٱلِٱجْتِمَاعِ، نَحْوَ ٱلشُّرُوقِ، هُمْ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ وَبَنُوهُ، حَارِسِينَ حِرَاسَةَ ٱلْمَقْدِسِ لِحِرَاسَةِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَٱلْأَجْنَبِيُّ ٱلَّذِي يَقْتَرِبُ يُقْتَلُ. ٣٨ 38
Moses and Aaron and his sons must camp on the east side of the tabernacle, in front of the tent of meeting, toward the sunrise. They are responsible for the fulfillment of the duties of the sanctuary and the duties of the people of Israel. Any foreigner who approaches the sanctuary must be put to death.
جَمِيعُ ٱلْمَعْدُودِينَ مِنَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ عَدَّهُمْ مُوسَى وَهَارُونُ حَسَبَ قَوْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ بِعَشَائِرِهِمْ، كُلُّ ذَكَرٍ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا، ٱثْنَانِ وَعِشْرُونَ أَلْفًا. ٣٩ 39
Moses and Aaron counted all the males in the clans of Levi who were aged one month old and older, just as Yahweh commanded. They counted twenty-two thousand men.
وَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ لِمُوسَى: «عُدَّ كُلَّ بِكْرٍ ذَكَرٍ مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا، وَخُذْ عَدَدَ أَسْمَائِهِمْ. ٤٠ 40
Yahweh said to Moses, “Count all the firstborn males of the people of Israel who are aged one month old and older. List their names.
فَتَأْخُذُ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ لِي. أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ. بَدَلَ كُلِّ بِكْرٍ فِي بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. وَبَهَائِمَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ بَدَلَ كُلِّ بِكْرٍ فِي بَهَائِمِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٤١ 41
You must take the Levites for me—I am Yahweh—instead of all the firstborn of the people of Israel, and the livestock of the Levites instead of the firstborn of the livestock of the descendants of Israel.”
فَعَدَّ مُوسَى كَمَا أَمَرَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ كُلَّ بِكْرٍ فِي بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٢ 42
Moses counted all the firstborn people of Israel as Yahweh had commanded him to do.
فَكَانَ جَمِيعُ ٱلْأَبْكَارِ ٱلذُّكُورِ بِعَدَدِ ٱلْأَسْمَاءِ مِنِ ٱبْنِ شَهْرٍ فَصَاعِدًا، ٱلْمَعْدُودِينَ مِنْهُمُ ٱثْنَيْنِ وَعِشْرِينَ أَلْفًا وَمِئَتَيْنِ وَثَلَاثَةً وَسَبْعِينَ. ٤٣ 43
He counted all the firstborn males by name, aged one month old and older. He counted 22,273 men.
وَكَلَّمَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى قَائِلًا: ٤٤ 44
Again, Yahweh spoke to Moses. He said,
«خُذِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ بَدَلَ كُلِّ بِكْرٍ فِي بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَبَهَائِمَ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ بَدَلَ بَهَائِمِهِمْ، فَيَكُونَ لِيَ ٱللَّاوِيُّونَ. أَنَا ٱلرَّبُّ. ٤٥ 45
“Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the people of Israel, and take the Levites' livestock instead of the people's livestock. The Levites belong to me—I am Yahweh.
وَأَمَّا فِدَاءُ ٱلْمِئَتَيْنِ وَٱلثَّلَاثَةِ وَٱلسَّبْعِينَ ٱلزَّائِدِينَ عَلَى ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ مِنْ أَبْكَارِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٤٦ 46
You must collect five shekels for the redemption of each of the 273 firstborn people of Israel who exceed the number of the Levites.
فَتَأْخُذُ خَمْسَةَ شَوَاقِلَ لِكُلِّ رَأْسٍ. عَلَى شَاقِلِ ٱلْقُدْسِ تَأْخُذُهَا. عِشْرُونَ جِيرَةً ٱلشَّاقِلُ. ٤٧ 47
You must use the shekel of the sanctuary as your standard weight. The shekel equals twenty gerahs.
وَتُعْطِي ٱلْفِضَّةَ لِهَارُونَ وَبَنِيهِ فِدَاءَ ٱلزَّائِدِينَ عَلَيْهِمْ». ٤٨ 48
You must give the price of redemption that you paid to Aaron and his sons.”
فَأَخَذَ مُوسَى فِضَّةَ فِدَائِهِمْ مِنَ ٱلزَّائِدِينَ عَلَى فِدَاءِ ٱللَّاوِيِّينَ. ٤٩ 49
So Moses collected the payment of redemption from those who exceeded the number of those redeemed by the Levites.
مِنْ أَبْكَارِ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَخَذَ ٱلْفِضَّةَ أَلْفًا وَثَلَاثَ مِئَةٍ وَخَمْسَةً وَسِتِّينَ عَلَى شَاقِلِ ٱلْقُدْسِ، ٥٠ 50
Moses collected the money from the firstborn of the people of Israel. He collected 1,365 shekels, weighing with the shekel of the sanctuary.
وَأَعْطَى مُوسَى فِضَّةَ ٱلْفِدَاءِ لِهَارُونَ وَبَنِيهِ حَسَبَ قَوْلِ ٱلرَّبِّ، كَمَا أَمَرَ ٱلرَّبُّ مُوسَى. ٥١ 51
Moses gave the redemption money to Aaron and to his sons. Moses did everything he was told to do by Yahweh's word, as Yahweh had commanded him.
