1 And YHWH spoke unto Moses, saying
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2 'Speak unto the children of Israel, and take of them rods, one for each fathers' house, of all their princes according to their fathers' houses, twelve rods; thou shalt write every man's name upon his rod.
3 And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi, for there shall be one rod for the head of their fathers' houses.
3 And write the name of Aaron on the rod of Levi; for it is one rod for each: they shall give them according to the tribe of the house of their families.
3 But the name of Aaron shall be for the tribe of Levi, and one rod separately shall contain all their families.
4 And thou shalt lay them up in the tent of meeting before the testimony, where I meet with you.
4 And you shall place these in the tabernacle of the covenant before the testimony, where I will speak to you.
5 And it shall come to pass, that the man whom I shall choose, his rod shall bud; and I will make to cease from Me the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against you.'
5 Whomever of these I will choose, his rod will germinate, and so shall I restrain the complaints of the sons of Israel before me, by which they murmur against you.”
