Thou thyself, therefore shalt look out, from among all the people - men of ability, reverers of God, men of fidelity, haters of extortion, - and place them over them as rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. So shall they judge the people at any time, and it shall be, all the great matters, shall they bring in unto thee, but all the small matters, shall, they themselves, judge, - so, lighten thou the burden for thyself, and let them bear it with thee. If, this thing, thou wilt do, and God shall command thee, then shalt thou be able to endure, - yea, moreover, all this people, shall go in, unto their dwellings, contented. read more.

Ye shall not take note of faces in judgment - so the small as the great, shall ye hear, ye shall not shrink from the face of any man, for judgment, unto God, belongeth, - but the thing which is too hard for you, shall ye bring near unto me, and I will hear it.

according to the direction wherewith they direct thee and after the judgment which they shall announce to thee, shalt thou do, - thou shalt not turn aside from the sentence which they shall declare unto thee to the right hand or to the left.

And, all the people, shall hear and fear, - and shall not act presumptuously any more.

Any dispute that shall come in unto you from among your brethren who are dwelling in their cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment and statutes and regulations, then shall ye warn them, that they may not become guilty against Yahweh, and so wrath come upon you and upon your brethren, - Thus, shall ye act, and not incur guilt.


Now it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat, to judge the people, - and the people stood by Moses, from the morning, until the evening. And when Moses father-in-law saw all that he, was doing for the people, he said - What is this thing which, thou, art doing for the people? Wherefore art, thou, sitting alone, with all the people, stationed by thee, from morning until evening? And Moses said to his father-in-law, - Because the people come in unto me to seek God: read more.
When they have a matter, they come in unto me, then do I judge between a man and his neighbour, - and make known the statutes of God and his laws. Then said Moses' father-in-law unto him, - Not good, is the thing that thou art doing. Thou wilt get quite worn out, both thou and this people that is with thee, - for the thing is too heavy for thee, thou canst not do it, alone.

Thou thyself, therefore shalt look out, from among all the people - men of ability, reverers of God, men of fidelity, haters of extortion, - and place them over them as rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

So spake unto you, at that time saying, I am unable, by myself, to carry you. Yahweh your God hath multiplied you, and here ye are to-day, like the stars of the heavens for multitude. Yahweh, the God of your fathers, be adding unto you the like of you, a thousand times, - and bless you, as he hath spoken unto you! read more.
How should I carry by myself the fatigue of you and the burden of you and your controversies?

So I took heads for your tribes wise men and known, and placed them as heads over you, captains of thousands, and captains of hundreds, and captains of fifties and captains of tens, and overseers for your tribes.

Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Gather thou unto me seventy men, from among the elders of Israel, of whom thou knowest that they are elders of the people and their overseers, - then shalt thou take them unto the tent of meeting, and they shall station themselves there with thee. Then will I come down, and speak with thee there, and will take of the spirit that is upon thee and put upon them, - and they shall carry, with thee, the burden of the people, and, thou, shalt not carry it by thyself.

And Moses went forth and spake unto the people the words of Yahweh, - and gathered together seventy men from among the elders of the people, and caused them to stand round about the tent. Then Yahweh came down, in the cloud, and spake unto him, and took e of the spirit that was upon him, and gave unto the seventy men - the elders. And it came to pass that when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and then did so no more.

Then said Yahweh unto Moses - Gather thou unto me seventy men, from among the elders of Israel, of whom thou knowest that they are elders of the people and their overseers, - then shalt thou take them unto the tent of meeting, and they shall station themselves there with thee. Then will I come down, and speak with thee there, and will take of the spirit that is upon thee and put upon them, - and they shall carry, with thee, the burden of the people, and, thou, shalt not carry it by thyself. And, unto the people, shalt thou say: Hallow yourselves by to-morrow, and ye shall eat flesh, for ye have wept in the ears of Yahweh saying - Who will grant us to eat flesh? for it was well with us in Egypt, - so then Yahweh will give you flesh and ye shall eat. read more.
Not one day, shall ye eat nor two days, - nor five days nor ten days, nor twenty days: for a month of days until it cometh forth out of your nostrils, so shall it become to you a loathsome thing, - because ye have refused Yahweh who is in your midst, and have wept before him, saying, Wherefore now came we forth out of Egypt? And Moses said, Six hundred thousand footmen, are the people in whose midst am, I, yet thou hast said - Flesh, will I give unto them, a and they shall eat for a month of days. Shall the flocks and herds, be slaughtered for them, that it may suffice for them? Shall all the fishes of the sea, be gathered together unto them that it may suffice for them? Then said Yahweh unto Moses, Shall the hand of Yahweh, fail? Now, shalt thou see whether my word come to pass unto thee or not. And Moses went forth and spake unto the people the words of Yahweh, - and gathered together seventy men from among the elders of the people, and caused them to stand round about the tent. Then Yahweh came down, in the cloud, and spake unto him, and took e of the spirit that was upon him, and gave unto the seventy men - the elders. And it came to pass that when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and then did so no more. Now there were two men left behind in the camp - the name of the one, was Eldad and the name of the other, Medad, so then the spirit, rested on them - they, being among them who were written, though they hint not gone forth unto the tent, - but they prophesied in the camp. And there ran a young man, and told Moses and said, - Eldad and Medad, are prophesying in the camp! Then responded Joshua son of Nun the attendant of Moses from his youth, and said, - My lord Moses forbid them! But Moses said unto him, Art, thou, jealous for, me? Oh would that, all the people of Yahweh, were prophets! Yea let Yahweh put his spirit upon them! Then was Moses received back into the camp, - he and the elders of Israel.

So spake unto you, at that time saying, I am unable, by myself, to carry you. Yahweh your God hath multiplied you, and here ye are to-day, like the stars of the heavens for multitude. Yahweh, the God of your fathers, be adding unto you the like of you, a thousand times, - and bless you, as he hath spoken unto you! read more.

So I commanded you at that time all the things which ye should do.
