Numbers 31:25-54 - Division Of The War-Booty

25 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 26 Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou and Eleazar, the priest, and the heads of the fathers of the congregation, 27 and divide the prey into two parts between those that took the part in the war, who went out to battle, and all the congregation. 28 And offer a tribute unto the LORD from the men of war who went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons and of the oxen and of the asses and of the sheep. 29 Take it from their half and give Eleazar, the priest, the offering of the LORD. 30 And of the half belonging to the sons of Israel, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of animals and give them unto the Levites, who keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD.

31 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, did as the LORD commanded Moses. 32 And the prey, that is the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep 33 and seventy-two thousand oxen 34 and sixty-one thousand asses 35 and thirty-two thousand persons in all, of women that had not known a man by lying with him.

36 And the half which was the portion of those that went out to war was in number three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep. 37 And the tribute for the LORD, of the sheep was six hundred and seventy-five. 38 And the oxen were thirty-six thousand, of which the tribute for the LORD was seventy-two. 39 And the asses were thirty thousand five hundred, of which the tribute for the LORD was sixty-one. 40 And the persons were sixteen thousand, of which the tribute for the LORD was thirty-two persons.

41 And Moses gave the tribute, which was the LORD's heave offering, unto Eleazar, the priest, as the LORD had commanded Moses.

42 And of the half pertaining to the sons of Israel, which Moses divided from the men that had gone to war, 43 (now the half that pertained unto the congregation was three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep 44 and thirty-six thousand oxen 45 and thirty thousand five hundred asses 46 and sixteen thousand persons)

47 of the half, therefore of the sons of Israel, Moses took one portion of fifty, both of man and of beast, and gave them unto the Levites, who kept the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD, as the LORD had commanded Moses.

48 And the officers who were over thousands of the host, the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses, 49 and they said unto Moses, Thy slaves have taken the sum of the men of war who are under our charge and not one man of us is missing. 50 We have therefore brought an offering for the LORD, each man of what he has found, of vessels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and tablets, to reconcile our souls before the LORD.

51 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, took the gold from them, all wrought vessels. 52 And all the gold of the offering that they offered up to the LORD, of the captains of thousands and of the captains of hundreds, was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels. 53 (For the men of war had taken spoil, every man for himself.) 54 And Moses and Eleazar, the priest, took the gold from the captains of thousands and of hundreds and brought it into the tabernacle of the testimony, for a memorial of the sons of Israel before the LORD.
