Their heart is divided; now shall they be found guilty: he will break down their altars, he will destroy their statues.
And who will hearken to you in this matter? For as his share is that goes down to the battle, so shall his share be that abides by the baggage: they shall share alike.
And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying, Take the sum of the prey that was taken, of man and of cattle, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the assembly; and divide the prey into halves, between them that conducted the war, who went out to the battle, and the whole assembly. read more.
And thou shalt levy a tribute for Jehovah of the men of war who went out to the army, one soul of five hundred of the persons, and of the oxen, and of the asses, and of the small cattle. Of their half shall ye take it, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for a heave-offering of Jehovah. And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the oxen, of the asses, and of the small cattle, of every kind of beasts, and thou shalt give them unto the Levites, who keep the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah. And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as Jehovah had commanded Moses. And the prey, the rest of the spoil, which the men of war had taken, was six hundred and seventy-five thousand sheep, and seventy-two thousand oxen, and sixty-one thousand asses, and of human persons, of the women that had not known lying with a man, all the persons were thirty-two thousand. And the half, the portion of them that had gone out to the war, was in number three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep, and the tribute for Jehovah of the sheep was six hundred and seventy-five; and the oxen were thirty-six thousand, and the tribute thereof for Jehovah, seventy-two; and the asses were thirty thousand five hundred, and the tribute thereof for Jehovah, sixty-one; and the human persons were sixteen thousand, of whom the tribute for Jehovah was thirty-two persons. And Moses gave the tribute of Jehovah's heave-offering to Eleazar the priest, as Jehovah had commanded Moses. And of the children of Israel's half, which Moses had divided, taking it from the men that served in the war, (now the half belonging to the assembly was of the sheep, three hundred and thirty-seven thousand five hundred, and thirty-six thousand oxen, and thirty thousand five hundred asses, and sixteen thousand human persons,) ... of the children of Israel's half, Moses took one portion of fifty, of man and of cattle, and gave them to the Levites who kept the charge of the tabernacle of Jehovah; as Jehovah had commanded Moses. And the officers who were over the thousands of the host, the captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, came near to Moses, and they said to Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war who were under our hand, and there is not one man of us lacking. So we present the offering of Jehovah, that which each one hath found, jewels of gold, chains, and bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces, to make atonement for our souls before Jehovah. And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, all manner of wrought jewels. And all the gold of the heave-offering that they offered to Jehovah was sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty shekels, from the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds. (The men of war had taken spoil each one for himself.) And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and brought it into the tent of meeting, as a memorial for the children of Israel before Jehovah.
PERES, Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
