    442And the sones of Merary weren noumbrid, bi the kynredis and housis of her fadris,

    444and thei weren foundun thre thousynde and two hundrid.
    445This is the noumbre of the sones of Merari, whiche Moyses and Aaron noumbriden, bi 'the comaundement of the Lord, bi the hoond of Moises.
    446Alle that weren noumbrid of Leuytis, and whiche Moyses and Aaron and the princes of Israel maden to be noumbrid, bi the kynredis and housis of her fadris,

    449By the 'word of the Lord Moises noumbride hem, ech man bi his office and hise chargis, as the Lord comaundide to hym.
    501And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide, Comaunde thou to the sones of Israel,
    502that thei caste out of the castels ech leprouse man, and that fletith out seed, and is defoulid on a deed bodi; caste ye out of the castels,
    503as wel a male as a female, lest thei defoulen tho, whanne thei dwellen with you.
    504And the sones of Israel diden so; and thei castiden hem out of the castels, as the Lord spak to Moises.
    505And the Lord spak to Moises,
    506and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel, Whanne a man ethir a womman han do of alle synnes that ben wont to falle to men, and han broke bi necgligence the 'comaundement of the Lord,
    507and han trespassid, thei schulen knowleche her synne, and thei schulen yelde thilke heed, and the fyuethe part aboue, to hym ayens whom thei synneden.
    508But if noon is that schal resseyue thei schulen yyue to the Lord, and it schal be the preestis part, outakun the ram which is offrid for clensyng, that it be a quemeful sacrifice.
    509Also alle the firste fruytis, whiche the sones of Israel offren, perteynen to the preest;
    510and what euer thing is offrid of ech man in the seyntuarie, and is youun to the 'hondis of the preest, it schal be the preestis part.
    511And the Lord spak to Moises,
    512and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel, and thou schalt seie to hem, If 'the wijf of a man hath errid, and hath dispisid the hosebonde,
    513and hath slept with another man, and the hosebonde may not take ether preue this, but the auowtrye is hid, and may not be preuyd bi witnessis, for sche is not foundun in leccherie;
    514if the spirit of gelousie stirith the housebonde ayens his wijf, which is ether defoulid, ethir is apechid bi fals suspecioun,
    515the man schal brynge hir to the preest, and he schal offre an offryng for hir 'the tenthe part of a mesure clepid satum of barli meele; he schal not schede oyle ther onne, nethir he schal putte encense, for it is the sacrifice of gelousie, and an offryng enquerynge auowtrye.
    516Therfor the preest schal offre hir, and schal sette bifore the Lord;
    517and he schal take holi watir in 'a vessel of erthe, and he schal putte in to it a litil of the erthe of the pawment of the tabernacle.
    518And whanne the womman stondith in the siyt of the Lord, he schal diskyuere hir heed, and he schal putte 'on the hondis of hir the sacrifice of remembryng, and the offryng of gelousie. Sotheli he schal holde moost bittir watris, in whiche he gaderide togidere cursis with cursyng.
    519And he schal conioure hir, and schal seie, If an alien man slepte not with thee, and if thou art not defoulid in the forsakyng the bed of the hosebonde, these bittereste watris schulen not anoye thee, in to whiche Y haue gaderid togidere cursis;
    520ellis if thou bowidst awei fro thin hosebonde, and art defoulid, and hast leyn with another man,
    521thou schalt be suget to these cursyngys; the Lord yyue thee in to cursyng, and in to ensaumple of alle men in his puple; 'the Lord make thin hipe to wexe rotun, and thi wombe swelle, and be brokun;
    522cursid watris entre in to thi wombe, and while the wombe swellith, thin hipe wexe rotun. And the womman schal answere, Amen! amen!
    523And the preest schal write thes cursis in a litil book, and he schal do awey tho cursis with bittereste watris, in to whiche he gaderide cursis,
    524and he schal yyue to hir to drynke. And whanne sche hath drunke tho watris,
    525the preest schal take of hir hond the sacrifice of gelousie, and he schal reise it bifor the Lord, and he schal putte on the auter;
    526so oneli that he take bifore an handful of sacrifice 'of that that is offrid, and brenne on the auter, and so yyue drynke to the womman the moost bittere watris.
    527And whanne sche hath drunke tho watris, if sche is defoulid, and is gilti of auowtrie, for the hosebonde is dispisid, the watris of cursyng schulen passe thorouy hir, and while the wombe is bolnyd, the hipe schal wexe rotun, and the womman schal be in to cursyng and in to ensaumple to al the puple.
    528That if sche is not pollutid, sche schal be harmeles, and schal brynge forth fre children.
    529This is the lawe of gelousie, if a womman bowith awei fro hir hosebonde, and is defoulid,
    530and the hosebonde is stirid with the spirit of gelousye, and bryngith hir in to the 'siyt of the Lord, and the preest doith to hir bi alle thingis that ben writun, the hosebonde schal be with out synne,
    531and sche schal resseyue hir wickidnesse.
    601And the Lord spak to Moises and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel,
    602and thou schalt seie to hem, Whanne a man ether a womman makith auow, that thei be halewid, and thei wolen halewe hem silf to the Lord,
    603thei schulen absteyne fro wyn and fro al thing that may make drunkun; thei schulen not drynke vynegre of wyn, and of ony other drynkyng, and what euer thing is pressid out of the grape; thei schulen not ete freisch grapis and drie,
    604alle dayes in whiche thei ben halewid bi a vow to the Lord; thei schulen not ete what euer thing may be of the vyner, fro a grape dried 'til to the draf .
    605In al tyme of his departyng a rasour schal not passe on his heed, 'til to the day fillid in which he is halewid to the Lord; he schal be hooli while the heer of his heed 'schal wexe.
    606In al the tyme of his halewing he schal not entre on a deed bodi,
    607and sotheli he schal not be defoulid on the deed bodi of fadir and of moder, of brothir and of sistir, for the halewyng of his God is on his heed;
    608ech dai of his departyng schal be hooli to the Lord.
    609But if ony man is deed sudeynly bifore hym, the heed of his halewyng schal be defoulid, which he schal schaue anoon in the same dai of his clensyng, and eft in the seuenthe dai;
    610forsothe in the eiyte dai he schal offre twei turtlis, ether twei 'briddis of a culuer, to the preest, in the entryng of the boond of pees of witnessyng.
    611And the preest schal make oon for synne, and the tothir in to brent sacrifice; and the preest schal preie for hym, for he synnede on a deed bodi, and he schal halewe his heed in that dai.
    612And he schal halewe to the Lord the daies of his departyng, and he schal offre a lomb of o yeer for synne, so netheles that the formere daies be maad voide, for his halewyng is defoulid.
    613This is the lawe of consecracioun. Whanne the daies schulen be fillid, whiche he determynede by a vow, the preest schal brynge hym to the dore of the tabernacle of boond of pees, and schal offre his offryng to the Lord,
    614a lomb of o yeer with out wem, in to brent sacrifice, and a scheep of o yeer with outen wem, for synne, and a ram with out wem, a pesible sacrifice;
    615also a panyere of theerf looues, that ben spreynt togidere with oile, and cakis sodun in watir, and aftir anoyntid with oile, with out sourdow, and fletyng sacrifices of alle bi hem silf;
    616whiche the preest schal offre bifor the Lord, and schal make as wel for synne as in to brent sacrifice.
    617Sotheli he schal offre the ram a pesible sacrifice to the Lord, and he schal offre togidere a panyere of therf looues and fletyng sacryfices, that ben due bi custom.
    618Thanne the Nazarei schal be schauun fro the heer of his consecracioun, bifor the doore of the tabernacle of boond of pees; and the preest schal take hise heeris, and schal putte on the fier, which is put vndur the sacrifice of pesible thingis.
    619And he schal take the schuldur sodun of the ram, and o 'cake of breed with out sourdow fro the panyere, and o theerf caak first sodun in watir and aftirward fried in oile, and he schal bitake in the hondis of the Nazarei, aftir that his heed is schauun.
    620And the preest schal reise in the 'siyt of the Lord the thingis takun eft of hym. And the thingis halewid schulen be the preestis part, as the brest which is comaundid to be departid, and the hipe. Aftir these thingis the Nasarey may drynke wyn.
    621This is the lawe of the Nasarei, whanne he hath avowyd his offryng to the Lord in the tyme of his consecracioun, outakun these thingis whiche his hond fyndith . By this that he avowide in soule, so he schal do, to the perfeccioun of his halewyng.
    622And the Lord spak to Moyses and seide,
    623Speke thou to Aaron and to hise sones, Thus ye schulen blesse the sones of Israel, and ye schulen seie to hem,
    624The Lord blesse thee, and kepe thee;
    625the Lord schewe his face to thee, and haue mercy on thee;
    626the Lord turne his cheer to thee, and yyue pees to thee.
    627Thei schulen clepe inwardli my name on the sones of Israel, and Y schal blesse hem.
    701Forsothe it was don in the dai in which Moises fillide the tabernacle, and reiside it, and anoyntide and halewide with alle 'hise vessels, the auter in lijk maner and the vessels therof.
    702And the princes of Israel, and the heedis of meynees that weren bi alle lynagis, 'the souereyns of hem that weren noumbrid,

    704Forsothe the Lord seide to Moises,
    705Take thou of hem, that tho serue in the seruice of the tabernacle, and bitake thou tho to dekenes bi the ordre of her seruice.
    706And so whanne Moises hadde take the waynes, and the oxun, he bitook tho to the dekenes.
    707He yaf twei waynes and foure oxun to the sones of Gerson, bi that that thei hadden nedeful.

    814and thou schalt departe hem fro the myddis of the sones of Israel, that thei be myne.
    815And aftirward entre thei in to the tabernacle of boond of pees, that thei serue me; and so thou schalt clense and schalt halewe hem, in to an offryng of the Lord, for bi fre yifte thei ben youun to me of the sones of Israel.
    816Y haue take hem for the firste gendrid thingis that openen ech wombe in Israel;
    817for alle the firste gendrid thingis of the sones of Israel ben myne, as wel of men as of beestis, fro the dai in which Y smoot ech firste gendrid thing in the loond of Egipt, Y halewide hem to me.
    818And Y took the Leuytis for alle the firste gendrid children of the sones of Israel;
    819and Y yaf hem bi fre yifte to Aaron and hise sones, fro the myddis of the puple, that thei serue me for Israel, in the tabernacle of boond of pees, and that thei preie for hem, lest veniaunce be in the puple, if thei ben hardi to neiye to the seyntuarye.
    820And Moises and Aaron, and al the multitude of the sones of Israel, diden on the Leuitis tho thingis that the Lord comaundide to Moyses.
    821And thei weren clensid, and thei waischiden her clothis; and Aaron reiside hem in the siyt of the Lord, and preiede for hem,
    822that thei schulen be clensid, and schulden entre to her offices in to the tabernacle of boond of pees, bifor Aaron and hise sones; as the Lord comaundide to Moises of the Leuytis, so it was don.
    823And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide, This is lawe of Leuytis;
    824fro fyue and twentithe yeer and aboue thei schulen entre, for to mynystre in the tabernacle of boond of pees;
    825and whanne thei han fillid the fiftithe yeer of age, thei schulen ceesse to serue.
    826And thei schulen be the mynystris of her bretheren in the tabernacle of boond of pees, that thei kepe tho thingis that ben bitakun to hem; sothely thei schulen not do tho werkis; thus thou schalt dispose Leuytis in her kepyngis.
    901And the Lord spak to Moises, in the deseert of Synay, in the secounde yeer aftir that thei yeden out of the lond of Egipt, in the firste moneth,
    902and seide, The sones of Israel make pask in his tyme,
    903in the fourtenthe day of this monethe, at the euentid, bi alle the cerymonyes and iustifiyngis therof.
    904And Moises comaundide to the sones of Israel, that thei schulden make pask;
    905whiche maden in his tyme, in the fourtenthe dai of the monethe, at euentid, in the hil of Synai; bi alle thingis whiche the Lord comaundide to Moises, the sones of Israel diden.
    906Lo! forsothe summen vncleene on the soule of man, that myyten not make pask in that dai, neiyiden to Moises and Aaron,
    907and seiden to hem, We ben vncleene 'on the soule of man; whi ben we defraudid, that we moun not offre an offryng to the Lord in his tyme, among the sones of Israel?
    908To whiche Moises answeride, Stonde ye, that Y take counseil, what the Lord comaundith of you.
    909And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide,
    910Speke thou to the sones of Israel, A man of youre folk which is vncleene 'on the soule, ether in the weie fer, make he pask to the Lord in the secounde monethe,
    911in the fourtenthe dai of the monethe, at euentid; with therf looues and letusis of the feeld he schal ete it.
    912Thei schulen not leeue ony thing therof til the morewtid, and thei schulen not breke a boon therof; thei schulen kepe al the custom of pask.
    913Forsothe if ony man is bothe cleene, and is not in the weie, and netheles made not pask, thilke man schal be distried fro hise puplis, for he offeride not sacrifice to the Lord in his tyme; he schal bere his synne.
    914Also if a pilgrym and comelyng is anentis you, make he pask to the Lord, bi the cerymonyes and iustifiyngis therof; the same comaundement schal be anentis you, as wel to a comelyng as to a man borun in the loond.
    915Therfore in the dai in which the tabernacle was reisid, a cloude hilide it; sotheli as the licnesse of fier was on the tente fro euentid til the morewtid.
    916Thus it was don continueli, a cloude hilide it bi dai, and as the licnesse of fier bi nyyt.
    917And whanne the cloude that hilide the tabernacle was takun awei, thanne the sones of Israel yeden forth, and in the place where the cloude stood, there thei settiden tentis.
    918At the comaundement of the Lord thei yeden forth, and at his comaundement thei settiden the tabernacle. In alle daies in whiche the cloude stood on the tabernacle, thei dwelliden in the same place.
    919And if it bifelde that it dwellide in myche tyme on the tabernacle, the sones of Israel weren in the watchis of the Lord, and thei yeden not forth,
    920in hou many euer daies the cloude was on the tabernacle. At the comaundement of the Lord thei reisiden tentis, and at his comaundement thei diden doun.
    921If the cloude was fro euentid 'til to the morewtid, and anoon in the morewtid hadde left, thei yeden forth; and if aftir a dai and nyyt it hadde go awei, thei scateriden, 'ether diden doun, tentis.
    922Whether in two monethis, ether in o monethe, ether in lengere tyme, 'the cloude hadde be on the tabernacle, the sones of Israel dwelliden in the same place, and yeden not forth; but anoon as it hadde go awey, thei moueden tentis.
    923Bi the word of the Lord thei settiden tentis, and bi his word thei wenten forth; and thei weren in the watchis of the Lord, bi his comaundement, bi the hond of Moyses.
    1001And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide,
    1002Make to thee twei siluerne trumpis betun out with hameris, bi whiche thou maist clepe togidere the multitude, whanne the tentis schulen be moued.
    1003And whanne thou schalt sowne with trumpis, al the cumpeny schal be gaderid to thee at the dore of the tabernacle of the boond of pees.
    1004If thou schalt sowne onys, the princes and the heedis of the multitude of Israel schulen come to thee;
    1005but if a lengere and departid trumpyng schal sowne, thei that ben at the eest coost schulen moue tentis first.
    1006Forsothe in the secounde sown and lijk noise of the trumpe thei that dwellen at the south schulen reise tentis; and bi this maner othere men schulen do, whanne the trumpis schulen sowne in to goyng forth.
    1007Forsothe whanne the puple schal be gederid to gidere, symple cry of trumpis schal be, and tho schulen not sowne departyngli.
    1008The sones of Aaron preest schulen sowne with trumpis, and this schal be a lawful thing euerlastynge in youre generaciouns.
    1009If ye schulen go out of youre lond to batel ayens enemyes that fiyten ayens you, ye schulen crye with trumpis sownynge, and the bithenkyng of you schal be bifor youre Lord God, that ye be delyuered fro the hondis of youre enemyes.
    1010If ony tyme ye schulen haue a feeste, and halidaies, and calendis, ye schulen synge in trumpis on brent sacrifices and pesible sacrifices, that tho be to you in to remembryng of youre God; Y am youre Lord God.
    1011In the secounde yeer, in the secounde monethe, in the twentithe dai of the monethe, the cloude was reisid fro the tabernacle of boond of pees.
    1012And the sones of Israel yeden forth bi her cumpenyes fro deseert of Synay; and the cloude restide in the wildirnesse of Faran.
    1013And the sones of Juda bi her cumpenyes, of whiche the prince was Naason, the sone of Amynadab, moueden first tentis,
    1014bi the Lordis comaundement maad in the hond of Moises.
    1015In the lynage of the sones of Ysacar the prince was Nathanael, the sone of Suar.
    1016In the lynage of Sabulon the prince was Heliab, the sone of Helon.
    1017And the tabernacle was takun doun, which the sones of Gerson and of Merary baren, and 'yeden out.
    1018And the sones of Ruben yeden forth bi her cumpenyes and ordre, of whiche the prince was Helisur, the sone of Sedeur.
    1019Forsothe in the lynage of the sones of Symeon the prince was Salamyel, the sone of Surisaddai.
    1020Sotheli in the lynage of Gad the prince was Helisaphath, the sone of Duel.
    1021And the sones of Caath yeden forth, and baren the seyntuarie; so longe the tabernacle was borun, til thei camen to the place of reisyng therof.
    1022Also the sones of Effraym, bi her cumpanyes, moueden tentis, in whos oost the prince was Elisama, the sone of Amyud.
    1023Forsothe in the lynage of the sones of Manasses the prince was Gamaliel, the sone of Phadussur.
    1024And in the lynage of Beniamyn the duk was Abidan, the sone of Gedeon.
    1025The sones of Dan, bi her cumpenyes, yeden forth the laste of alle tentis, in whos oost the prince was Aizer, the sone of Amysaddai.
    1026Sotheli in the lynage of the sones of Aser the prince was Phegiel, the sone of Ochran.
    1027And in the lynage of the sones of Neptalym the prince was Haira, the sone of Henan.
    1028These ben the castels and the goinges forth of the sones of Israel, bi her cumpenyes, whanne thei yeden out.
    1029And Moises seide to Heliab, the sone of Raguel, of Madian, his alie 'ethir fadir of his wijf, We goon forth to the place which the Lord schal yyue to vs; come thou with vs, that we do wel to thee, for the Lord bihiyte goode thingis to Israel.
    1030To whom he answeride, Y schal not go with thee, but Y schal turne ayen in to my lond, in which Y was borun.
    1031And Moises seide, Nyle thou forsake vs, for thou knowist in whiche places we owen to sette tentis, and thou schalt be oure ledere;
    1032and whanne thou schalt come with vs, what euer thing schal be the beste of the richessis whiche the Lord schal yyue to vs, we schulen yyue to thee.
    1033And therfor thei yeden forth fro the hil of the Lord the weie of thre daies; and the arke of boond of pees of the Lord yede bifor hem, bi thre daies, and purueyde the place of tentis.
    1034And the cloude of the Lord was on hem bi day, whanne thei yeden.
    1035And whanne the arke was reisid, Moises seide, Ryse thou, Lord, and thin enemyes be scaterid, and thei that haten thee, fle fro thi face;
    1036forsothe whanne the arke was put doun, he seide, Lord, turne ayen to the multitude of the oost of Israel.
    1101Yn the meene tyme the grutchyng of the puple, as of men sorewynge for trauel, roos ayens the Lord. And whanne Moises hadde herd this thing, he was wrooth; and the fier of the Lord was kyndelid on hem, and deuouride the laste part of the tentis.
    1102And whanne the puple hadde cried to Moises, Moises preiede the Lord, and the fier was quenchid.
    1103And he clepid the name of that place Brennyng, for the fier of the Lord was kyndlid ayens hem.
    1104And the comyn puple of 'malis and femalis, that hadde stied with hem, brent with desire of fleischis, and sat, and wepte with the sones of Israel ioyned togidere to hem, and seide, Who schal yyue to vs fleischis to ete?
    1105We thenken on the fischis whiche we eten in Egipt freli; gourdis, and melouns, and lekis, and oyniouns, and garlekis comen in to mynde 'to vs;
    1106oure soule is drie ; oure iyen byholden noon other thing 'no but manna.
    1107Forsothe manna was as the seed of coriaundre, of the colour of bdellyum, which is whijt and briyt as cristal.
    1108And the puple yede aboute, and gaderide it, and brak with a queerne stoon, ether pownede in a morter, and sethide in a pot; and made therof litle cakis of the sauour, as of breed maad with oile.
    1109And whanne dew cam doun in the niyt on the tentis, also manna cam doun togidere.
    1110Therfor Moises herde the puple wepynge bi meynees, and 'alle bi hem silf bi the doris of her tentis; and the woodnesse of the Lord was wrooth greetli, but also the thing was seyn vnsuffrable to Moises.
    1111And he seide to the Lord, Whi hast thou turmentid thi seruaunt? whi fynde Y not grace bifor thee? and whi hast thou put on me the burthun of al this puple?
    1112whethir Y conseyuede al this multitude, ethir gendride it, that thou seie to me, Bere thou hem in thi bosum as a nurise is wont to bere a litil yong child, and bere thou in to the lond for which thou hast swore to the fadris 'of hem.
    1113wherof ben fleischis to me, that Y 'yyue to so greet multitude? Thei wepen bifore me, and seyn, 'Yyue thou fleischis to vs that we ete;
    1114I mai not aloone suffre al this puple, for it is greuouse to me.
    1115If in other maner it semeth to thee, Y biseche that thou sle me, and that Y fynde grace in thin iyen, that Y be not punyschid bi so grete yuelis.
    1116And the Lord seide to Moises, Gadere thou to me seuenti men of the eldre men of Israel, whiche thou knowist, 'that thei ben the elde men and maistris of the puple; and thou schalt lede hem to the dore of the tabernacle of boond of pees, and thou schalt make to stonde there with thee,
    1117that Y come doun, and speke to thee; and Y schal take awey of thi spirit, and Y schal yyue to hem, that thei susteyne with thee the birthun of the puple, and not thou aloone be greuyd.
    1118And thou schalt seie to the puple, Be ye halewid; to morew ye schulen ete fleischis; for Y herde you seie, Who schal yyue to vs the metis of fleischis? it was wel to vs in Egipt; that the Lord yyue 'fleischis to you,
    1119and that ye ete not o dai, ethir tweyne, ethir fyue, ethir ten, sotheli nether twenti,
    1120but 'til to a monethe of daies, til it go out bi youre nosethirlis, and turne in to wlatyng; for ye han put awei the Lord, which is in the myddis of you, and ye wepten bifor hym, and seiden, Whi yeden we out of Egipt?
    1121And Moises seide to the Lord, Sixe hundrid thousynde of foot men ben of this puple, and thou seist, Y schal yyue to hem 'mete of fleischis an hool monethe.
    1122Whether the multitude of scheep and of oxun schal be slayn, that it may suffice to mete, ethir alle the fischis of the see schulen be gaderid to gidere, that tho fille hem?
    1123To whom the Lord answeride, Whether the 'hond of the Lord is vnmyyti? riyt now thou schalt se, wher my word schal be fillid in werk.
    1124Therfor Moises cam, and telde to the puple the wordis of the Lord; and he gaderide seuenti men of the eldere of Israel, whiche he made stonde aboute the tabernacle.
    1125And the Lord cam doun bi a cloude, and spak to Moises, and took a weye of the spirit that was in Moises, and yaf to the seuenti men; and whanne the spirit hadde restid in hem, thei profesieden, and ceessiden not 'aftirward.
    1126Forsothe twei men dwelliden stille in the tentis, of whiche men oon was clepid Heldad, and the tothir Medad, on whiche the spirit restide; for also thei weren descryued, and thei yeden not out to the tabernacle.
    1127And whanne thei profesieden in the tentis, a child ran, and teld to Moises, and seide, Heldad and Medad profecien in the tentis.
    1128Anoon Josue, the sone of Nun, the 'mynystre of Moises, and chosun of manye, seide, My lord Moises, forbede thou hem.
    1129And he seide, What hast thou enuye for me? who yyueth that al the puple profesie, and that God yyue his spirit to hem?
    1130And Moises turnede ayen, and the eldre men in birthe of Israel in to the tentis.
    1131Forsothe a wynde yede forth fro the Lord, and took curlewis, and bar ouer the see, and lefte in to the tentis, in the iurney, as myche as mai be parformed in o day, bi ech part of the tentis bi cumpas; and tho flowen in the eir bi twei cubitis in 'hiynesse ouer the erthe.
    1132Therfor the puple roos in al that dai and nyyt and in to the tothir dai, and gaderide the multitude of curlewis; he that gaderide litil, gaderide ten 'mesuris clepid chorus; 'and o chorus conteyneth ten buschels; and thei drieden tho curlewis bi the cumpas of the tentis.
    1133Yit 'fleischis weren in the teeth 'of hem, and siche mete failide not; and lo! the woodnesse of the Lord was reisid ayens the puple, and smoot it with a ful greet veniaunce.
    1134And thilke place was clepid The sepulcris of coueitise, for there thei birieden the puple that desiride fleischis. Sotheli thei yeden 'out of the sepulcris of coueitise, and camen in to Asseroth, and dwelliden there.
    1201And Marie spak and Aaron ayens Moises, for his wijf a womman of Ethiope,
    1202and seiden, Whethir God spak oneli by Moises? whethir he spak not also to vs in lijk maner? And whanne the Lord hadde herd this, he was wrooth greetli;
    1203for Moises was the myldest man, ouer alle men that dwelliden in erthe.
    1204And anoon the Lord spak to Moises and to Aaron and to Marye, Go out ye thre aloone to the tabernacle of boond of pees. And whanne thei weren gon yn,
    1205the Lord cam doun in a piler of cloude, and he stood in the entryng of the tabernacle, and clepide Aaron and Marie.
    1206And whanne thei hadden go, he seide to hem, Here ye my wordis; if ony among you is a profete of the Lord, Y schal appere to hym in reuelacioun, ethir Y schal speke to hym bi 'a dreem.
    1207And he seide, And my seruaunt Moises is not siche, which is moost feithful in al myn hows;
    1208for Y speke to hym mouth to mouth, and he seeth God opynli, and not bi derke spechis and figuris. Why therfor dredden ye not to bacbite 'ether depraue my seruaunt Moises?
    1209And the Lord was wrooth ayens hem, and he wente a wei.
    1210And the cloude yede awei, that was on the tabernacle and lo! Marie apperide whijt with lepre as snow. And whanne Aaron biheelde hir, and siy hir bispreynd with lepre,
    1211he seide to Moises, My lord, Y beseche, putte thou not this synne on vs,
    1212which we diden folili, that this womman be not maad as deed, and as a deed borun thing which is cast out of the 'wombe of his modir; lo! now the half of hir fleisch is deuourid with lepre.
    1213And Moises criede to the Lord, and seide, Lord, Y biseche, heele thou hir.
    1214To whom the Lord answerid, If hir fadir hadde spet in to hir face, where sche ouyte not to be fillid with schame, nameli in seuene daies? Therfor be sche departid out of the tentis bi seuen daies, and aftirward sche schal be clepid ayen.
    1215And so Marie was excludid out of the tentis bi seuene daies; and the puple was not mouyd fro that place, til Marie was clepid ayen.
    1301And the puple yede forth fro Asseroth, whanne the tentis weren set in the deseert of Pharan.
    1302And there the Lord spak to Moises,
    1303and seide, Sende thou men that schulen biholde the lond of Canaan, which Y schal yyue to the sones of Israel, of ech lynage o man of the princes.
    1304Moises dide that that the Lord comaundide, and sente fro the deseert of Pharan princes, men of whiche these ben the names.
    1305Of the lynage of Ruben, Semmya, the sone of Zectur.
    1306Of the lynage of Symeon, Saphat, the sone of Hury.
    1307Of the lynage of Juda, Caleph, the sone of Jephone.
    1308Of the lynage of Isachar, Igal, the sone of Joseph.
    1309Of the lynage of Effraym, Osee, the sone of Nun.
    1310Of the lynage of Beniamyn, Phalti, the sone of Raphu.
    1311Of the lynage of Zabulon, Gediel, the sone of Sodi.
    1312Of the lynage of Joseph, of the gouernaunce of Manasses, Gaddi, the sone of Susy.
    1313Of the lynage of Dan, Amyel, the sone of Gemalli.
    1314Of the lynage of Aser, Sur, the sone of Mychael.
    1315Of the lynage of Neptalym, Nabdi, the sone of Napsi.
    1316Of the lynage of Gad, Guel, the sone of Machi.
    1317These ben the names of men, which Moises sente to biholde the lond of Canaan; and he clepide Osee, the sone of Nun, Josue.
    1318Therfor Moises sente hem to biholde the lond of Canaan, and seide to hem, 'Stie ye bi the south coost; and whanne ye comen to the hillis,
    1319biholde ye the lond, what maner lond it is; and biholde ye the puple which is the dwellere therof, whether it is strong, ethir feble, 'whether thei ben fewe in noumbre, ether manye;
    1320whether that lond is good, ethir yuel; what maner citees ben, wallid, ether without wallis;
    1321whether the lond is fat, ether bareyn, 'whether it is ful of woodis, ethir without trees. Be ye coumfortid, and 'brynge ye to vs of the fruytis of that lond. Sotheli the tyme was, whanne grapis first ripe myyten be etun thanne.
    1322And whanne thei hadden stied, thei aspieden the lond, fro the deseert of Syn 'til to Rohob, as men entryth to Emath.
    1323And thei stieden to the south, and camen in to Ebron, where Achyman, and Sisai, and Tholmai, the sones of Enach, weren; for Hebron was maad bi seuen yeer bifor Thamnys, the citee of Egipt.
    1324And thei yeden til to the stronde of clustre, and kittiden doun a sioun with his grape, which twei men baren in a barre; also thei token of pumgarnadis, and of the figis of that place which is clepid Nehelescol,
    1325that is, the stronde of grape, for the sones of Israel baren a clustre fro thennus.
    1326And the aspieris of the lond, whanne thei hadden cumpassid al the cuntrey, after fourti daies camen to Moises and Aaron,
    1327and to al the cumpany of the sones of Israel, in to the deseert of Pharan which is in Cades. And 'the aspieris spaken to hem, and schewiden the fruytis of the lond to al the multitude, and telden,
    1328and seiden, We camen to the lond, to which thou sentest vs, which lond treuli flowith with mylk and hony, as it may be knowun bi these fruytis;
    1329but it hath strongeste inhabiteris, and grete cytees, and wallid; we sien there the kynrede of Anachym; Amalech dwellith in the south;
    1330Ethei, and Jebusei, and Amorey dwellen in the hilli placis; forsothe Cananey dwellith bisidis the see, and bisidis the floodis of Jordan.
    1331Among thes thingis Caleph peeside the grutchyng of the puple, that was maad ayens Moises, and seide, 'Stie we, and welde we the lond, for we moun gete it.
    1332Forsothe other aspieris, that weren with hym, seiden, We moun not stie to this puple, for it is strongere than we.
    1333And thei deprauyden the lond which thei hadden biholde, anentis the sones of Israel, and seiden, The lond which we cumpassiden deuourith hise dwelleris; the puple which we bihelden is of large stature; there we syen summe wondris ayens kynde,
    1334of the sones of Enach, of the kynde of geauntis, to whiche we weren comparisound, and weren seien as locustis.
    1401Therfor al the cumpeny criede, and wepte in that nyyt,
    1402and alle the sones of Israel grutchiden ayens Moises and Aaron, and seiden,
    1403We wolden that we hadden be deed in Egipt, and not in this waast wildirnesse ; we wolden that we perischen, and that the Lord lede vs not in to this lond, lest we fallen bi swerd, and oure wyues and fre children ben led prisoneris; whether it is not betere to turne ayen in to Egipt?
    1404And thei seiden oon to another, Ordeyne we a duyk to vs, and turne we ayen in to Egipt.
    1405And whanne this was herd, Moises and Aaron felden lowe to erthe, bifor al the multitude of the sones of Israel.
    1406And sotheli Josue, the sone of Nun, and Caleph, the sone of Jephone, whiche also cumpassiden the lond, to renten her clothis,
    1407and spaken to al the multitude of the sones of Israel, The lond which we cumpassiden is ful good;
    1408if the Lord is merciful to vs, he schal lede vs in to it, and schal yyue 'to vs the lond flowynge with mylk and hony.
    1409Nyle ye be rebel ayens the Lord, nether drede ye the puple of this lond, for we moun deuoure hem so as breed; al her help passide awei fro hem, the Lord is with vs, nyle ye drede.
    1410And whanne al the multitude criede, and wolde oppresse hem with stonys, the glorie of the Lord apperide on the roof of the boond of pees, while alle the sones of Israel sien.
    1411And the Lord seide to Moises, Hou long schal this puple bacbite me? Hou longe schulen thei not bileue to me in alle 'signes, whiche Y haue do bifor hem?
    1412Therfor Y schal smyte hem with pestilence, and Y schal waste hem; forsothe Y schal make thee prince on a greet folk, and strongere than is this.
    1413And Moises seide to the Lord, Egipcians 'here not, fro whos myddil thou leddist out this puple,
    1414and the dwelleris of this loond, whiche herden that thou, Lord, art in this puple, and art seyn face to face, and that thi cloude defendith hem, and that thou goist bifore hem in a pilere of cloude bi dai,
    1415and in a piler of fier bi nyyt, that thou hast slayn so greet a multitude as o man,
    1416and seie thei, He myyte not brynge this puple in to the lond for whiche he swoor, therfor he killide hem in wildirnesse;
    1417therfor the strengthe of the Lord be magnified, as thou hast swore. And Moises seide,
    1418Lord pacient, and of myche mercy, doynge awei wickidnesse and trespassis, and leeuynge no man vngilti, which visitist the synnes of fadris in to sones in to the thridde and fourthe generacioun, Y biseche,
    1419foryyue thou the synne of this thi puple, aftir the greetnesse of thi merci, as thou were merciful to men goynge out of Egipt 'til to this place.
    1420And the Lord seide, Y haue foryouun to hem, bi thi word.
    1421Y lyue; and the glorie of the Lord schal be fillid in al erthe;
    1422netheles alle men that sien my mageste, and my signes, whiche Y dide in Egipt and in the wildirnesse, and temptiden me now bi ten sithis, and obeieden not to my vois,
    1423schulen not se the lond for which Y swore to her fadris, nethir ony of hem that bacbitide me, schal se it.
    1424Y schal lede my seruaunt Caleph, that was ful of anothir spirit, and suede me, in to this lond, which he cumpasside, and his seed schal welde it.
    1425For Amalech and Cananei dwellen in the valeis, to morewe moue ye tentis, and turne ye ayen in to wildirnesse bi the weie of the reed see.
    1426And the Lord spak to Moises and to Aaron, and seide,
    1427Hou long grutchith this werste multitude ayens me? Y haue herd the pleyntis of the sones of Israel.
    1428Therfor seie thou to hem, Y lyue, seith the Lord; as ye spaken while Y herde, so Y schal do to you;
    1429youre careyns schulen ligge in this wildirnesse. Alle ye that ben noumbrid, fro twenti yeer and aboue, and grutchiden ayens me,
    1430schulen not entre in to the lond, on which Y reiside myn hond, that Y schulde make you to dwelle outakun Caleph, the sone of Jephone, and Josue, the sone of Nun.
    1431Forsothe Y schal lede in youre litle children, of whiche ye seiden that thei schulden be preyes 'ethir raueyns to enemyes, that thei se the lond which displeside you.
    1432Forsothe youre careyns schulen ligge in the wildirnesse;
    1433youre sones schulen be walkeris aboute in the deseert bi fourti yeer, and thei schulen bere youre fornycacioun, til the careyns of the fadris ben wastid in the deseert,
    1434by the noumbre of fourti daies, in whiche ye bihelden the loond; a yeer schal be arettid for a dai, and bi fourti yeer ye schulen resseyue youre wickidnesse, and ye schulen knowe my veniaunce.
    1435For as Y spak, so Y schal do to al this werste multitude, that roos to gidere ayens me; it schal faile, and schal die in this wildirnesse.
    1436Therfor alle the men whyche Moises hadde sent to see the lond, and whiche turniden ayen, and maden al the multitude to grutche ayens hym, and depraueden the lond, that it was yuel,
    1437weren deed, and smytun in the siyt of the Lord.
    1438Sotheli Josue, the sone of Nun, and Caleph, the sone of Jephone, lyueden, of alle men that yeden to se the lond.
    1439And Moises spak alle these wordis to alle the sones of Israel, and the puple mourenyde gretli.
    1440And, lo! thei riseden in the morewtid first, and 'stieden in to the cop of the hil, and seiden, We ben redi to stie to the place, of which the Lord spak, for we synneden.
    1441To whiche Moises seide, Whi passen ye the word of the Lord, that schal not bifalle to you in to prosperite?
    1442Nyle ye stie, for the Lord is not with you, lest ye fallen bifor youre enemyes.
    1443Amalech and Cananei ben bifor you, bi the swerd of whiche ye schulen falle, for ye nolden assente to the Lord, nether the Lord schal be with you.
    1444And thei weren maad derk, and stieden in to the cop of the hil; forsothe the ark of the testament of the Lord and Moises yeden not awey fro the tentis.
    1445And Amalech cam doun, and Chananei, that dwelliden in the hil, and he smoot hem, and kittide doun, and pursuede hem til Horma.
    1501And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel,
    1502and thou schalt seie to hem, Whanne ye han entrid in to the lond of youre abitacioun which Y schal yyue to you,
    1503and ye make an offryng to the Lord in to brent sacrifice, ether a pesible sacrifice, and ye payen auowis, ethir offren yiftis bi fre wille, ethir in youre solempnytees ye brennen odour of swetnesse to the Lord, of oxun, ether of scheep;
    1504who euer offrith the slayn sacrifice, schal offre a sacrifice of flour, the tenthe part of ephi, spreynt togidere with oile, which oil schal haue a mesure the fourthe part of hyn;
    1505and he schal yyue wyn to fletynge sacrifices to be sched, of the same mesure, in to brent sacrifice, and slayn sacrifice.
    1506Bi ech loomb and ram schal be the sacrifice of flour, of twey tenthe partis, which schal be spreynt togidere with oile, of the thridde part of hyn;
    1507and he schal offre wyn to the fletynge sacrifice, of the thridde part of the same mesure, in to odour of swetnesse to the Lord.
    1508Forsothe whanne thou makist a brent sacrifice, ethir an offryng of oxun, that thou fille avow, ethir pesible sacrifice, thou schalt yyue,
    1509bi ech oxe, thre tenthe partis of flour, spreynt togidere with oile, which schal haue the half of mesure of hyn;
    1510and thou schalt yyue wyn to fletynge sacrifices to be sched, of the same mesure, in to offryng of the swettest odour to the Lord.
    1511So ye schulen do bi ech oxe, and ram,
    1512and lomb, and kide;
    1513as wel men borun in the lond,
    1514as pilgrymys, schulen offre sacrifices bi the same custom;
    1515o comaundement and doom schal be, as wel to you as to comelyngis of the lond.
    1516And the Lord spak to Moises,
    1517and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel, and thou schalt seie to hem,
    1518Whanne ye comen in to the lond which Y schal yyue to you,
    1519and 'ye eten of the looues of that cuntrey, ye
    1520schulen departe the firste fruytis of youre metis to the Lord; as ye schulen departe the firste fruytis of corn flooris,
    1521so ye schulen yyue the firste fruytis also of sewis to the Lord.
    1522That if bi ignoraunce ye passen ony of tho thingis whiche the Lord spak to Moyses,
    1523and comaundide bi hym to you, fro the dai in which he bigan to comaunde,
    1524and ouer, and the multitude hath foryete to do, it schal offre a calf of the drooue, brent sacrifice in to swettist odour to the Lord, and the sacrificis therof, and fletynge offryngis, as the cerymonyes therof axen; and it schal offre a 'buc of geet for synne.
    1525And the preest schal preie for al the multitude of the sones of Israel, and it schal be foryouun to hem, for thei synneden not wilfuli. And neuerthelesse thei schulen offre encense to the Lord for hemsilf, and for her synne and errour;
    1526and it schal be foryouun to al the puple of the sones of Israel, and to comelyngis that ben pilgryms among hem, for it is the synne of al the multitude bi ignoraunce.
    1527That if a soule synneth vnwityngli, it schal offre a geet of o yeer for his synne; and the preest schal preye for that soule, for it synnede vnwityngli bifor the Lord;
    1528and the preest schal gete foryyuenesse to it, and synne schal be foryouun to it.
    1529As wel to men borun in the lond as to comelyngis, o lawe schal be of alle that synnen vnwityngli.
    1530Forsothe a man that doith ony synne bi pride, schal perische fro his puple, whether he be a citeseyn, ethir a pilgrym, for he was rebel ayens the Lord;
    1531for he dispiside the word of the Lord, and made voide his comaundement; therfor he schal be doon awei, and schal bere his owne wickidnes.
    1532Forsothe it was doon, whanne the sones of Israel weren in wildirnesse, and hadde founde a man gaderynge woode in the 'day of sabat,
    1533thei brouyten hym to Moises, and to Aaron, and to al the multitude; whiche closiden hym in to prisoun,
    1534and wisten not what thei schulden do of hym.
    1535And the Lord seide to Moises, This man die bi deeth; al the cumpeny oppresse hym with stoonus with out the tentis.
    1536And whanne thei hadden led hym with out forth, thei oppressiden him with stoonus, and he was deed, as the Lord comaundide.
    1537Also the Lord seide to Moises,
    1538Speke thou to the sones of Israel, and thou schalt seye to hem, that thei make to hem hemmes bi foure corneris of mentils, and sette laces of iacynct 'in tho;
    1539and whanne thei seen thoo, haue thei mynde of alle comaundementis of the Lord, lest thei suen her thouytis and iyen, doynge fornycacioun bi dyuerse thingis;
    1540but more be thei myndeful of the 'Lordis heestis, and do thei tho, and be thei hooli to her God.
    1541Y am youre Lord God, which ledde you out of the lond of Egipt, that Y schulde be youre God.
    1601Lo! forsothe Chore, the sone of Isuar, sone of Caath, sone of Leuy, and Dathan and Abiron, the sones of Heliab, and Hon, the sone of Pheleph, of the sones of Ruben, rysen ayens Moises,
    1602and othere of the sones of Israel, two hundryd men and fifti, prynces of the synagoge, and whiche weren clepid bi names in the tyme of counsel.
    1603And whanne 'thei hadden stonde ayens Moises and Aaron, thei seiden, Suffice it to you, for al the multitude is of hooly men, and the Lord is in hem; whi ben ye reisid on the puple of the Lord?
    1604And whanne Moises hadde herd this, he felde lowe on the face.
    1605And he spak to Chore, and to al the multitude; he seide, Eerli the Lord schal make knowun whiche perteynen to hym, and he schal applie to hym hooli men; and thei whiche he hath chose, schulen neiye to hym.
    1606Therfor do ye this thing; ech man take his cencere, thou Chore, and al thi counsel;
    1607and to morewe whanne fier is takun vp, putte ye encense aboue bifor the Lord, and whom euer the Lord chesith, he schal be hooli . Ye sones of Leuy ben myche reisid.
    1608And eft Moises seide to Chore, Ye sones of Leuy, here.
    1609Whether it is litil to you, that God of Israel departide you fro al the puple, and ioynede you to hym silf, that ye schulden serue hym in the seruyce of tabernacle, and that ye schulden stonde bifor the multitude of puple, and schulden serue hym?
    1610Made he therfor thee and alle thi bretheren the sones of Leuy to neiy to hym silf, that ye chalenge to you also preesthod,
    1611and al thi gaderyng togidere stonde ayens the Lord? For whi what is Aaron, that ye grutchen ayens hym?
    1612Therfor Moises sente to clepe Dathan and Abiron, the sones of Heliab; whiche answeriden, We comen not.
    1613Whethir is it litil to thee, that thou leddist vs out of the lond that flowide with mylk and hony, to sle vs in the deseert, no but also thou be lord of vs?
    1614Verili thou hast bronyt vs in to the lond that flowith with streemys of mylk and hony, and hast youe to vs possessioun of feeldis, and of vyneris; whethir also thou wolt putte out oure iyen?
    1615We comen not. And Moises was wrooth greetli, and seide to the Lord, Biholde thou not the sacrifices of hem; thou wost that Y took neuere of hem, yhe, a litil asse, nethir Y turmentide ony of hem.
    1616And Moises seide to Chore, Thou and al thi congregacioun stonde asidis half bifor the Lord, and Aaron to morewe bi hym silf.
    1617Take ye alle bi you silf youre censeris, and putte ye encense in tho, and offre ye to the Lord, tweyn hundrid and fifti censeris; and Aaron holde his censer.
    1618And whanne thei hadden do this, while Moises and Aaron stoden,
    1619and thei hadden gaderid al the multitude to the 'dore of the tabernacle ayens hem, the glorie of the Lord apperide to alle.
    1620And the Lord spak to Moises and Aaron,
    1621and seide, Be ye departid fro the myddis of this congregacioun, that Y leese hem sodeynli.
    1622Whiche felden lowe on the face, and seiden, Strongeste God of the spiritis of al fleisch, whethir 'thin yre schal be fers ayens alle men, for o man synneth?
    1623And the Lord seide to Moises,
    1624Comaunde thou to al the puple, that it be departid fro the tabernaclis of Chore, and of Dathan, and of Abiron.
    1625And Moises roos, and yede to Dathan and Abiron; and while the eldre men of Israel sueden hym,
    1626he seide to the cumpeny, Go ye awey fro the tabernaclis of wickid men, and nyle ye touche tho thingis that parteynen to hem, lest ye ben wlappid in the synnes of hem.
    1627And whanne thei hadden gon awei fro the tentis 'of hem bi the cumpas, Dathan and Abiron yeden out, and stoden in the entryng of her tentis, with wyues, and fre children, and al the multitude.
    1628And Moises seide, In this ye schulen wite that the Lord sente me, that Y schulde do alle thingis whiche ye seen, and Y brouyte not forth tho of myn owne herte.
    1629If thei perischen bi customable deeth of men, and wounde visite hem, bi which also othere men ben wont to be visitid,
    1630the Lord sente not me; but if the Lord doith a newe thing, that the erthe opene his mouth, and swolewe hem, and alle thingis that perteynen to hem, and thei goen doun quyke in to helle, ye schulen wite that thei blasfemeden the Lord.
    1631Therfor anoon as he cesside to speke, the erthe was brokun vndur her feet,
    1632and the erthe openyde his mouth, and deuowride hem, with her tabernaclis, and al the catel 'of hem;
    1633and thei yeden doun quike in to helle, and weren hilid with erthe, and perischiden fro the myddis of the multitude.
    1634And sotheli al Israel that stood bi the cumpas, fledde fro the cry of men perischinge, and seide, Lest perauenture the erthe swolewe also vs.
    1635But also fier yede out fro the Lord, and killide tweyn hundrid and fifti men that offriden encense.
    1636And the Lord spak to Moises, and seide,
    1637Comaunde thou to Eleasar, sone of Aaron, preest, that he take the censeris that liggen in the brennyng, and that he schatere the fier hidur and thidur; for tho ben halewid in the dethis of synneris;
    1638and that he bringe forth tho in to platis, and naile to the auter, for encense is offrid in tho to the Lord, and tho ben halewid, that the sonis of Israel se tho for a signe and memorial.
    1639Therfor Eleazar, preest, took the brasun senseris, in whiche censeris thei whiche the brennyng deuouride hadden offrid, and he 'brouyt forth tho in to platis, and nailide to the auter;
    1640that the sones of Israel schulden haue thingis aftirward, bi whiche thei schulden remembre, lest ony alien, and which is not of the seed of Aaron, neiy to offre encense to the Lord, lest he suffre, as Chore sufferide, and al his multitude, while the Lord spak to Moises.
    1641Forsothe al the multitude of the sones of Israel grutchide in the dai suynge ayens Moises and Aaron, and seide, Ye han slayn the puple of the Lord.
    1642And whanne discensioun roos,
    1643and noise encresside, Moises and Aaron fledden to the tabernacle of the boond of pees; and aftir that thei entriden in to it, a cloude hilide the tabernacle, and the glorie of the Lord apperide.
    1644And the Lord seide to Moises and to Aaron,
    1645Go ye awey fro the myddis of this multitude, also now Y schal do awey hem. And whanne thei laien in the erthe, Moises seide to Aaron,
    1646Take the censer, and whanne fyer is takun vp of the auter, caste encense aboue, and go soone to the puple, that thou preye for hem; for now ire is gon out fro the Lord, and the wounde is feers.
    1647And whanne Aaron hadde do this, and hadde runne to the myddis of the multitude, which the brennynge wastid thanne, he offeride encense;
    1648and he stood bytwixe the deed men and lyuynge, and bisouyte for the puple, and the wounde ceesside.
    1649Sotheli thei that weren smytun weren fourtene thousynde of men and seuene hundrid, with outen hem that perischiden in the discencioun of Chore.
    1650And Aaron turnyde ayen to Moyses, to the dore of the tabernacle of boond of pees, aftir that the perischyng restide.
    1701And the Lord spak to Moises, 'and seide, Speke thou to the sones of Israel,
    1702and take thou yerdis, bi her kynredis, bi ech kynrede o yeerde, take thou of alle the princes of the lynagis twelue yerdis; and thou schalt write the name of each lynage aboue his yerde;
    1703forsothe the name of Aaron schal be in the lynage of Leuy, and o yerde schal conteyne alle the meynees of hem.
    1704And thou schalt putte tho yerdis in the tabernacle of boond of pees, bifor the witnessyng, where Y schal speke to thee; the yerde of hym schal buriowne, whom Y schal chese of hem;
    1705and Y schal refreyne fro me the playnyngis of the sones of Israel, bi whiche thei grutchen ayens you.
    1706And Moyses spak to the sones of Israel; and alle princes yauen to hym yerdis, bi alle lynagis; and the yerdis weren twelue, without the yerde of Aaron.
    1707And whanne Moises hadde put tho yerdis bifor the Lord, in the tabernacle of witnessyng, he yede ayen in the day suynge,
    1708and founde that the yerde of Aaron, 'in the hows of Leuy, buriounnede; and whanne knoppis weren greet, the blossoms 'hadden broke out, whiche weren alargid in leeuys, and weren fourmed in to alemaundis.
    1709Therfor Moyses brouyte forth alle the yerdis fro the siyt of the Lord to al the sones of Israel; and thei sien, and resseyueden ech his yerde.
    1710And the Lord seide to Moises, Bere ayen the yerde of Aaron in to the tabernacle of witnessyng, that it be kept there in to 'the signe of the rebel sones of Israel, and that her 'playntis reste fro me, lest thei dien.
    1711And Moises dide, as the Lord comaundide.
    1712Forsothe the sones of Israel seiden to Moises, Lo! we ben wastid, alle we perischiden;
    1713who euer neiyeth to the tabernacle of the Lord, he dieth; whethir we schulen be doon awei alle 'til to deeth?
    1801And the Lord seide to Aaron, Thou, and thi sones, and the hows of thi fadir with thee, schulen bere the wickidnesse of the seyntuarie; and thou and thi sones togidere schulen suffre the synnes of youre preesthod.
    1802But also take thou with thee thi britheren of the lynage of Leuy, and the power of thi fadir, and be thei redi, that thei mynystre to thee. Forsothe thou and thi sones schulen mynystre in the tabernacle of witnessyng;
    1803and the dekenes schulen wake at thi comaundementis, and at alle werkis of the tabernacle; so oneli that thei neiye not to the vessels of seyntuarie, and to the autir, lest bothe thei dien, and ye perischen togidere.
    1804Forsothe be thei with thee, and wake thei in the kepyngis of the tabernacle, and in alle the cerymonyes therof. An alien schal not be meddlid with you.
    1805Wake ye in the kepyng of the seyntuarie, and in the seruyce of the auter, lest indignacioun rise on the sones of Israel.
    1806Lo! Y haue youun 'to you youre britheren, dekenes, fro the myddis of the sones of Israel, and Y haue youe a fre yifte to the Lord, that thei serue in the seruyces of his tabernacle.
    1807Forsothe thou and thi sones, kepe youre preesthod; and alle thingis that perteynen to the ournyng of the auter, and ben with ynne the veil, schulen be mynystrid bi preestis; if ony straunger neiyeth, he schal be slayn.
    1808The Lord spak to Aaron, Lo! Y haue youe to thee the kepyng of my firste fruytis; Y haue youe to thee and to thi sones alle thingis, that ben halewid of the sones of Israel, for preestis office euerlastynge lawful thingis.
    1809Therfor thou schalt take these thingis of tho thingis that ben halewid, and ben offrid to the Lord; ech offryng, and sacrifice, and what euer thing is yoldun to me for synne and for trespas, and cometh in to hooli of hooli thingis, schal be thin and thi sones.
    1810Thou schalt ete it in the seyntuarie; malis oneli schulen ete therof, for it is halewid to the Lord.
    1811Forsothe Y haue youe to thee, and to thi sones and douytris, bi euerlastynge riyt, the firste fruytis whiche the sones of Israel a vowen and offren; he that is clene in thin hous, schal ete tho.
    1812Y yaf to thee al the merowe of oile, and of wyn, and of wheete, what euer thing of the firste fruytis thei schulen offre to the Lord.
    1813Alle the bigynnyngis of fruytis whiche the erthe bryngith forth, and ben brouyt to the Lord, schulen falle in to thin vsis; he that is cleene in thin hous, schal ete of tho.
    1814Al thing which the sones of Israel yelden bi avow, schal be thin.
    1815What euer thing 'schal breke out first of the wombe of al fleisch, which fleisch thei offren to the Lord, whether it is of men, ethir of beestis, it schal be of thi riyt; so oneli that thou take prijs for the firste gendrid child of man, and that thou make ech beeste which is vncleene to be bouyt ayen;
    1816whos ayenbiyng schal be aftir o monethe, for fyue siclis of siluer, bi the weiyte of seyntuarie; a sicle hath xx. halpens.
    1817Forsothe thou schalt not make the firste gendrid of oxe, and of scheep, and of goet, to be ayen bouyt, for tho ben halewid to the Lord; oneli thou schalt schede the blood of tho on the auter, and thou schalt brenne the ynnere fatnesse in to swettist odour to the Lord.
    1818Forsothe the fleischis schulen falle in to thin vss, as the brest halewid and the riyt schuldur, schulen be thine.
    1819Y yaf to the and to thi sones and douytris, bi euerlastynge riyt, alle the firste fruytis of seyntuarie, whiche the sones of Israel offren to the Lord; it is euerlastynge couenant of salt bifor the Lord, to thee, and to thi sones.
    1820And the Lord seide to Aaron, Ye schulen not welde ony thing in the lond of hem, nether ye schulen haue part among hem; Y am thi part and erytage, in the myddis of the sones of Israel.
    1821Forsothe Y yaf to the sones of Leuy alle the tithis of Israel in to possessioun, for the seruyce bi whyche thei seruen me in the tabernacle of boond of pees;
    1822that the sones of Israel neiye no more to the 'tabernacle of boond of pees, nether do dedli synne.
    1823To the sones aloone of Leuy, seruynge me in the tabernacle, and berynge the 'synnes of the puple, it schal be a lawful thing euerlastynge in youre generaciouns .
    1824Thei schulen welde noon other thing, and thei schulen be apeied with the offryng of tithis, whiche Y departide in to vsis and necessaries of hem.
    1825And the Lord spak to Moises and seide,
    1826Comaunde thou, and denounse to the dekenes, Whanne ye han take tithis of the sones of Israel, whiche Y yaf to you, offre ye the firste fruytis of tho to the Lord, that is, the tenthe part of the dyme,
    1827that it be arettid to you in to offryng of the firste fruytis, as wel of corn flooris as of pressis;
    1828and of alle thingis of whiche ye taken tithis, offre ye the firste fruytis to the Lord, and yyue ye to Aaron, preest.
    1829Alle thingis whiche ye schulen offre of tithis, and schulen departe in to the yiftis of the Lord, schulen be the beste, and alle chosun thingis.
    1830And thou schalt seye to hem, If ye offren to the Lord alle the clere and betere thingis of tithis, it schal be arettid to you, as if ye yauen the firste fruitis of the corn floor and presse.
    1831And ye schulen ete tho tithis in alle youre placis, as wel ye as youre meynees, for it is the prijs for the seruyce, in whiche ye seruen in the tabernacle of witnessyng.
    1832And ye schulen not do synne on this thing, 'and resserue noble thingis and fat to you, lest ye defoulen the offryngis of the sones of Israel, and ye dien.
    1901And the Lord spak to Moises and to Aaron,
    1902and seide, This is the religioun of sacrifice, which the Lord ordeynede. Comaunde thou to the sones of Israel, that thei brynge to thee a reed cow of hool age, in which is no wem, nether sche hath bore yok.
    1903And ye schulen bitake hir to Eleazar, preest, which schal offre 'the cow, led out of the tentis, in the siyt of alle men.
    1904And he schal dippe his fyngur in the blood therof, and schal sprynge seuene sithis ayens the yatis of the tabernacle.
    1905And he schal brenne that cow, while alle men sien; and he schal yyue as wel the skyn and fleischis therof as the blood and dung to flawme.
    1906Also the preest schal 'sende a tre of cedre, and ysope, and reed threed died twies, into the flawme that deuourith the cow.
    1907And thanne at the laste, whanne hise clothis 'and bodi ben waischun, he schal entre in to the tentis, and he schal be defoulid 'til to euentid.
    1908But also he that brente the cow, schal waische hise clothis, and bodi, and he schal be vncleene 'til to euentid.
    1909Forsothe a cleene man schal gadere the aischis of the cow, and schal schede out tho with out the tentis, in a place moost cleene, that tho be to the multitude of the sones of Israel in to keping, and in to watir of spryngyng; for the cow is brent for synne.
    1910And whanne he that bar the aischis of the cow, hath waische hise clothis, he schal be vncleene 'til to euentid. And the sones of Israel, and comelyngis that dwellen among hem, schulen haue this hooli bi euerlastynge lawe.
    1911He that touchith a deed bodi of man, and is vncleene for this bi seuene daies,
    1912schal be spreynt of this watir in the thridde, and in the seuenthe dai; and so he schal be clensid. If he is not spreynt in the thridde dai, he schal not mow be clensid in the seuenthe dai.
    1913Ech that touchith the deed bodi bi it silf of mannus soule, and is not spreynt with this medlyng, defoulith the 'tabernacle of the Lord, and he schal perische fro Israel; for he is not spreynt with the wateris of clensyng, he schal be vncleene, and his filthe schal dwelle on hym.
    1914This is the lawe of a man that dieth in the tabernacle; alle that entren in to his tente, and alle vessels that ben there, schulen be defoulid bi seuene daies.
    1915A vessel that hath not an hilyng, nethir a byndyng aboue, schal be vncleene.
    1916If ony man touchith the deed bodi of man slayn in the feeld, ether deed bi hym silf, ether a boon, ether the sepulcre 'of hym, he schal be vncleene bi seuene daies.
    1917And thei schulen take 'of the aischis of the brennyng, and of the synne, and thei schulen sende quyk watris in to a vessel on tho aischis;
    1918in whiche whanne 'a cleene man hath dippid ysope, he schal spreynge therof the tente, and al the purtenaunce of howshold, and men defoulid bi sich defoulyng.
    1919And in this maner a cleene man schal clense an vncleene, in the thridde and in the seuenthe dai; and he schal be clensid in the seuenthe dai. And he schal waische hym silf, and hise clothis, and he schal be vncleene 'til to euentid.
    1920If ony man is not clensid bi this custom, the soule of hym schal perische fro the myddis of the chirche; for he defoulith the 'seyntuarie of the Lord, and is not spreynt with the watir of clensyng.
    1921This comaundement schal be a lawful thing euerlastynge. Also he that schal sprenge the watris schal waische his clothis; ech man that touchith the watris of clensyng, schal be vncleene 'til to euentid.
    1922What euer thing an vncleene man touchith, he schal make it vncleene; and a soule that touchith ony of these thingis 'defoulid so, schal be vncleene 'til to euentid.
    2001And the sones of Israel and al the multitude camen in to the deseert of Syn, in the firste monethe . And the puple dwellide in Cades; and Marie was deed there, and biried in the same place.
    2002And whanne the puple hadde nede to watir, thei yeden togidere ayens Moises and Aaron; and thei weren turned in to dissensioun,
    2003and seiden, We wolden that we hadden perischid among oure britheren bifor the Lord.
    2004Whi han ye led out the chirche of the Lord in to wildirnesse, that bothe we and oure beestis die?
    2005Whi han ye maad vs to stie from Egipt, and han brouyt vs in to this werste place, which may not be sowun, which nether bryngith forth fige tre, nether vineris, nether pumgranatis, ferthermore and hath not watir to drynke?
    2006And whanne the multitude was left, Moises and Aaron entriden in to the tabernacle of boond of pees, and felden lowe to erthe, and crieden to God, and seiden, Lord God, here the cry of this puple, and opene to hem thi tresour, a welle of quyk watir, that whanne thei ben fillid, the grutchyng of hem ceesse. And the glorie of the Lord apperide on hem;
    2007and the Lord spak to Moises,
    2008and seide, Take the yerde, and gadere the puple, thou, and Aaron thi brother; and speke ye to the stoon bifore hem, and it schal yyue watris. And whanne thou hast led watir out of the stoon, al the multitude schal drynke, and the beestis therof 'schulden drynke.
    2009Therfor Moises took the yerde that was in the 'siyt of the Lord, as the Lord comaundide to hym,
    2010whanne the multitude was gaderid bifor the stoon; and he seide to hem, Here ye, rebel and vnbileueful; whether we moun brynge out of this stoon watir to you?
    2011And whanne Moises hadde reisid the hond, and hadde smyte the flynt twies with the yerde, largeste watris yeden out, so that the puple drank, and the beestis drunken.
    2012And the Lord seide to Moises and to Aaron, For ye bileueden not to me, that ye schulden halewe me bifor the sones of Israel, ye schulen not lede these puples in to the lond which Y schal yyue to hem.
    2013This is the watir of ayenseiyng; there the sones of Israel stryueden ayens the Lord, and he was halewid in hem.
    2014In the meene tyme Moises sente messangeres fro Cades to the kyng of Edom, whiche seiden, Israel thi brother sendith these thinges. Thou knowist al the trauel that took vs,
    2015hou oure fadris yeden doun in to Egipt, and we dwelliden there myche tyme, and Egipcians turmentiden vs and oure fadris; and hou we crieden to the Lord,
    2016and he herde vs, and sente an aungel that ledde vs out of Egipt. And lo! we ben set in the citee of Cades, which is in thi laste coostis,
    2017and we bisechen that it be leueful to vs to passe thorou thi lond; we schulen not go bi feeldis, nether bi vyneris, nether we schulen drynke watris of thi pittis; but we schulen go in the comyn weie, and we schulen not bowe to the riyt side, nether to the left side, til we passen thi termes.
    2018To whom Edom answeride, Ye schulen not passe bi me, ellis Y schal be armed, and come ayens thee.
    2019And the sones of Israel seiden, We schulen go bi the weie comynli vsid, and if we and oure beestis drynken thi watris, we schulen yyue that that is iust; noon hardnesse schal be in prijs, onely passe we swiftli.
    2020And he answeride, Ye schulen not passe. And anoon he yede out ayens Israel, with a multitude without noumbre, and 'strong hond,
    2021nether he wolde assente to Israel bisechynge, that he schulde graunte passage bi hise coostis. Wherfor Israel turnede awey fro hym.
    2022And whanne thei hadden moued tentis fro Cades, thei camen in to the hil of Hor, which is in the endis of the lond of Edom;
    2023where the Lord spak to Moyses and seide, Aaron go to his puples;
    2024for he schal not entre in to the lond which Y yaf to the sones of Israel, for he was vnbileueful to my mouth, at the watris of ayenseiyng.
    2025Take thou Aaron, and his sone with hym, and thou schalt lede hem in to the hil of Hor;
    2026and whanne thou hast maad nakid the fadir of his cloth, thou schalt clothe 'with it Eleazar, his sone, and Aaron schal be gederid, and schal die there.
    2027Moises dide as the Lord comaundide; and thei stieden in to the hil of Hor, bifor al the multitude.
    2028And whanne he hadde maad nakid Aaron of hise clothis, he clothide with tho Eleazar, his sone.
    2029Sotheli whanne Aaron was deed in the 'cop of the hil, Moises cam doun with Eleazar.
    2030Sotheli al the multitude siy that Aaron was deed, and wepte on hym thretti daies, bi alle her meyness.
    2101And whanne Chananei, the kyng of Arad, that dwellide at the south, hadde herd this, that is, that Israel cam bi the weye of aspieris, he fauyt ayens hem; and Chananei was ouercomere and ledde pray of Israel.
    2102And Israel bounde hym sylf bi avow to the Lord, and seide, If thou schalt bitake this puple in myn hond, Y schal do awei 'the citees therof.
    2103And the Lord herde the preieris of Israel, and bitook the Chananey; and Israel killid hym, and distruyede hise citees; and clepide the name of that place Horma, that is, cursyng, 'ethir hangyng up.
    2104Forsothe thei yeden forth also fro the hil of Hor, bi the weie that ledith to the reed see, that thei schulden cumpasse the lond of Edom; and it bigan to anoye the puple, of the weie and trauel.
    2105And the puple spak ayens the Lord and Moises, and seide, Whi leddist thou vs out of Egipt, that we schulden die in wildirnesse? breed failith, watris ben not; oure soule wlatith now on this 'meete moost liyt.
    2106Wherfor the Lord sente 'firid serpentis in to the puple; at the woundis of whiche serpentis, and the dethis of ful many men,
    2107thei camen to Moyses, and seiden, We synneden, for we spaken ayens the Lord and thee; preie thou, that he take awey fro vs the serpentis.
    2108And Moises preiede for the puple; and the Lord seide to hym, Make thou a serpent of bras, and sette thou it for a signe ; he that is smytun and biholdith it, schal lyue.
    2109Therfor Moyses made a serpent of bras, and settide for a signe; and men smytun and biholdynge it, weren heelid.
    2110And the sones of Israel yeden forth,
    2111and settiden tentis in Oboth; fro whennus thei yeden forth, and settiden tentis in Neabarym, in the wildirnesse, that biholdith Moab, ayens the eest coost.
    2112And thei moueden fro thennus, and camen to the stronde of Zareth;
    2113which thei leften, and settiden tentis ayens Arnon, which is in the deseert, and apperith in the coostis of Amorrei. Forsothe Arnon is the terme of Moab, and departith Moabitis and Ammoreis.
    2114Wherfor it is seid in the book of batels of the Lord, As he dide in the reed see, so he schal do in the strondis of Arnon;
    2115the harde rochis of the strondis weren bowid, that tho schulen reste in Arnon, and schulden ligge in the coostis of Moabitis.
    2116Fro that place the pit apperide, of which the Lord spak to Moyses, Gadere thou the puple, and Y schal yyue watir to it.
    2117Thanne Israel soong this song, The pit stie;
    2118thei sungen togidere, The pit which the princes diggiden, and the duykis of the multitude maden redi, in the yyuere of the lawe, and in her stauys. And thei yeden forth fro the wildirnesse to Mathana,
    2119fro Mathana to Naaliel, fro Naaliel in to Bamoth;
    2120Bamoth is a valey in the cuntrey of Moab, in the cop of Phasga, that biholdith ayens the deseert.
    2121Forsothe Israel sente messangeris to Seon, kyng of Ammorreis, and seide,
    2122Y biseche that it be leueful to me to passe thorou thi loond; we schulen not bowe in to the feeldis and vyneris; we schulen not drynke watris of pittis; we schulen go in the kyngis weie, til we passen thi termes.
    2123Which nolde graunte that Israel schulde passe thury hise coostis, but rather, whanne the oost was gaderid, he yede out ayens Israel, in to deseert. And he cam in to Yasa, and fauyt ayens Israel;
    2124of whom he was smytun in the scharpnesse of swerd, and his lond was weldid fro Arnon 'til to Jeboth and 'the sones of Amon; for the termes of Amonytis weren holdun bi strong help.
    2125Therfor Israel took alle 'the citees of hym, and dwelliden in the citees of Amorrei, that is, in Esebon, and hise townes.
    2126The citee of Esebon was Seons, kyng of Ammorei, which Seon fauyt ayens the kyng of Moab, and took al the lond that was of his lordschip, 'til to Arnon.
    2127Therfor it is seid in prouerbe, Come ye in to Esebon, be it bildid, and maad the citee of Seon;
    2128fier yede out of Esebon, flawme yede out of the citee 'ethir greet castel of Seon, and deuouryde Ar of Moabitis, and the dwelleris of the 'hiye places of Arnon.
    2129Moab, wo to thee! thou, puple of Chamos, perischidist; it yaf the sones therof in to fliyt, and the douytris in to caitifte to Seon, kyng of Ammoreis;
    2130the yok of hem perischide, fro Esebon 'til to Dibon; the wery men camen in to Jophe, and 'til to Medaba.
    2131And so Israel dwellide in the lond of Ammorrey.
    2132And Moises sente men that schulden aspie Jaser, whos 'townes thei token, and weldiden the dwelleris.
    2133And thei turniden hem silf, and stieden bi the weie of Basan. And Og, the kyng of Basan, with al his puple cam ayens hem, to fiyte in Edray.
    2134And the Lord seide to Moises, Drede thou not hym, for Y haue bitake hym, and al his loond, and puple, in thin hoond; and thou schalt do to hym as thou didist to Seon, kyng of Ammorreis, the dwellere of Esebon.
    2135Therfor thei smytiden 'bothe hym with hise sones and al his puple, 'til to deeth; and thei weldiden 'the lond of hym.
    2201And thei yeden forth, and settiden tentis in the feeldi places of Moab, where Jerico is set ouer Jordan.
    2202Forsothe Balach, the sone of Sephor, siy alle thingis whiche Israel hadde do to Ammorrei,
    2203and that men of Moab 'hadden dred Israel, and miyten not bere the assailing of him.
    2204And he seide to the grettere men in birthe of Madian, So this puple schal do a wei alle men that dwellen in oure coostis, as an oxe is wont to do awei an eerbe 'til to the rootis. Forsothe he, 'that is, Balaac, was kyng in that tyme in Moab.
    2205Therfor he sente messangeris to Balaam, the sone of Beor, a fals diuynour, that dwellide on the flood of the lond of the sones of Amon, that thei schulden clepe hym, and schulden seie, Lo! a puple yede out of Egipt, 'which puple hilide the face of erthe, and sittith ayens me.
    2206Therfor come thou, and curse this puple, which is strongere than Y, if in ony maner Y may smyte and dryue hym out of my lond; for Y knowe, that he is blissid whom thou blissist, and he is cursid whom thou hast cursid.
    2207The eldere men of Moab and the grettere men in birthe of Madian yeden forth, hauynge in hondis the prijs of fals dyuynyng; and whanne thei hadden come to Balaam, and hadden teld to hym alle the wordis of Balaach, he answeride,
    2208Dwelle ye here to nyyt, and Y schal answere what euer thing the Lord schal seie to me. Sotheli while thei dwelliden at Balaam, God cam, and seide to hym,
    2209What wolen these men at thee 'to hem silf?
    2210Balaam answeride, Balaach, the sone of Sephor, kyng of Moabitis, sente to me, and seide, Lo!
    2211a puple which is gon out of Egipt hilide the face of erthe; come thou, and curse hem, if in ony maner Y may fiyte, and dryue hym awey.
    2212And God seide to Balaam, Nyle thou go with hem, nether curse thou the puple, for it is blessid.
    2213Which Balaam roos eerli, and seide to the princes, Go ye in to youre lond, for God forbeed me to come with you.
    2214The princes turneden ayen, and seiden to Balaach, Balaam nolde come with vs.
    2215Eft Balaach sente many mo and noblere men, than he hadde sent bifore;
    2216whiche seiden, whanne thei hadden come to Balaam, Balaach, the sone of Sephor, seith thus, Tarye thou not to come to me, redi to onoure thee;
    2217and what euer thing thou wolt, Y schal yyue to thee; come thou, and curse this puple.
    2218Balaam answeride, Thouy Balaach schal yyue to me his howsful of siluer and of gold, Y schal not mowe chaunge the word of my God, that Y speke ethir more ethir lesse.
    2219Y biseche, that ye dwelle here also in this nyyt, that Y may wite what the Lord schal answere eft to me.
    2220Therfor the Lord cam to Balaam in the nyyt, and seide to hym, If these men comen to clepe thee, rise thou, and go with hem, so oneli that thou do that that Y schal comaunde to thee.
    2221Balaam roos eerli, and whanne his femal asse was sadelid, he yede forth with hem.
    2222And God was wrooth. And the 'aungel of the Lord stood in the weie ayens Balam, that sat on the femal asse, and hadde twei children with hym.
    2223The femal asse siy the aungel stondynge in the weie, with swerd drawun, and 'turnede a wei hir silf fro the weie, and yede bi the feeld. And whanne Balaam beet hir, and wolde lede ayen to the path,
    2224the aungel stood in the streitnessis of twei wallis, with whiche the vyneris weren cumpassid.
    2225And the femal asse siy the aungel, and ioynede hir silf to the wal, and hurtlide the foot of the sittere; and he beet eft 'the asse.
    2226And neuer the lesse the aungel yede to the streit place, where me 'myyte not go out of the weie, nether to the riyt side nether to the left side, and stood ayens hym.
    2227And whanne the femal asse siy the aungel stondynge, sche felde doun vndir the feet of the sittere, which was wrooth ful greetli, and beet hir sidis with a staaf.
    2228And the Lord openyde the 'mouth of the femal asse, and sche spak, What have Y doon to thee? whi smytist thou me, lo! now the thridde tyme?
    2229Balaam answeride, For thou hast disserued, and hast scornyd me; Y wolde that Y hadde a swerd to sle thee.
    2230And the femal asse seide, Whether Y am not thi beeste on which thou were wont to sitte euere til in to this present dai? seie thou, what lijk thing Y dide euere to thee? And he seide, Neuere.
    2231Anoon the Lord openyde 'the iyen of Balaam, and he siy the aungel stondynge in the weie, holdynge a drawun swerd in the hoond; and Balaam worschipide hym lowli in to erthe.
    2232To whom the aungel seide, Whi 'betist thou thi femal asse 'the thridde tyme? Y cam to be aduersarie to thee, for thi weie is weiward, and contrarye to me;
    2233and if the femal asse hadde not bowid a wey fro the weie, and youe place to ayenstondere, Y hadde slayn thee, and sche schulde lyue.
    2234Balaam seide, Y synnede, not witynge that thou stodist ayens me; and now, if it displesith thee that Y go, Y schal turne ayen.
    2235The aungel seide, Go thou with these men, but be war that thou speke not other thing than Y schal comaunde to thee. Therfor Balaam yede with the princes.
    2236And whanne Balaach hadde herde this, he yede out in to the comyng of hym, in the citee of Moabitis, whiche is set in the laste coostis of Arnon.
    2237And he seide to Balaam, Y sente messangeris to clepe thee; whi camest thou not anoon to me? whethir for Y may not yelde meede to thi comyng?
    2238To whom Balaam answeride, Lo! Y am present, whethir Y schal mow speke other thing than that, that God schal putte in my mouth?
    2239Therfor thei yeden forth to gidere, and camen in to a citee, which was in the laste coost of 'his rewme.
    2240And whanne Balaach hadde slayn scheep and oxun, he sente yiftis to Balaam and the princes that weren with hym.
    2241Forsothe whanne the morewtid was maad, Balaach ledde Balaam to the hiye placis of Baal, and he bihelde the laste part of the puple, 'that is, al the oost til to the laste part.
    2301And Balaam seide to Balaach, Bilde thou here to me seuene auteris, and make redi so many caluys, and rammes of the same noumbre.
    2302And whanne he hadde do bi the word of Balaam, thei puttiden a calf and a ram to gidere on the auter.
    2303And Balaam seide to Balaach, Stond thou a litil while bisidis thi brent sacrifice, while Y go, if in hap the Lord meete me; and Y schal 'speke to thee what euer thing he schal comaunde.
    2304And whanne he hadde go swiftli, God cam to hym; and Balaam spak to hym, and seide, Y reiside seuene auteris, and Y puttide a calf and a ram aboue.
    2305Forsothe the Lord 'puttide a word in his mouth, and seide, Turne ayen to Balaach, and thou schalt speke these thingis.
    2306He turnede ayen, and fond Balach stondynge bisidis his brent sacrifice, and alle the princes of Moabitis.
    2307And whanne his parable 'was takun, he seide, Balaach, the kyng of Moabitis, brouyte me fro Aran, fro the 'hillis of the eest; and he seide, Come thou and curse Jacob; haaste thou, and greetli curse thou Israel.
    2308How schal Y curse whom God cursid not? bi what resoun schal Y 'haue abhomynable whom God 'hath not abhomynable?
    2309Fro the hiyeste flyntis Y schal se hym, and fro litle hillis Y schal biholde hym; the puple schal dwelle aloone, and it schal not be arettid among hethene men.
    2310Who may noumbre the dust, that is, kynrede, of Jacob, and knowe the noumbre of the generacioun of Israel? My lijf die in the deeth of iust men, and my laste thingis be maad lijk hem!
    2311And Balaach seide to Balaam, What is this that thou doist? Y clepide thee, that thou schuldist curse myn enemyes, and ayenward thou blessist hem.
    2312To whom Balaam answeride, Whether Y may speke othir thing no but that that the Lord comaundith?
    2313Therfor Balaach seide to Balaam, Come with me in to anothir place, fro whennus thou se a part of Israel, and mayst not se al; fro thennus curse thou hym.
    2314And whanne he hadde led Balaam in to an hiy place, on the cop of the hil of Phasga, he bildide seuene auteris to Balaam, and whanne calues and rammes weren put aboue,
    2315he seide to Balaach, Stonde here bisidis thi brent sacrifice, while Y go.
    2316And whanne the Lord hadde 'come to him, and hadde put 'a word in his mouth, he seide, Turne ayen to Balach, and thou schalt seie these thingis to hym.
    2317He turnyde ayen, and foond Balach stondynge bisidis his brent sacrifice, and the princis of Moabitis with hym. To whom Balach seide, What spak the Lord?
    2318And whanne his parable 'was takun, he seide, Stonde, Balach, and herkene; here, thou sone of Sephor. God is not 'as a man,
    2319that he lye, nethir he is as the sone of a man, that he be chaungid; therfor he seide, and schal he not do? he spak, and schal he not fulfille?
    2320Y am brouyt to blesse, Y may not forbede blessyng.
    2321Noon idol is in Jacob, nethir symylacre is seyn in Israel; his Lord God is with hym, and the sown of victorie of kyng is in hym.
    2322The Lord God ledde hym out of Egipt, whos strengthe is lijk an vnicorn;
    2323fals tellyng bi chiteryng of bryddis, 'ethir idolatrie, is not in Jacob, nethir fals dyuynyng is in Israel. In his tymes it schal be seide to Jacob and Israel, What the Lord hath wrought!
    2324Lo! the puple schal rise to gidere as a lionesse, and schal be reisid as a lioun; the lioun schal not reste, til he deuoure prey, and drynke the blood of hem that ben slayn.
    2325And Balach seide to Balaam, Nether curse thou, nether blesse thou hym.
    2326And he seide, Whether Y seide not to thee, that what euer thing that God comaundide to me, Y wolde do this?
    2327And Balach seide to hym, Come, and Y schal lede thee to an other place, if in hap it plesith God that fro thennus thou curse hym.
    2328And whanne Balaach hadde led hym out on the 'cop of the hil of Phegor, that biholdith the wildirnesse,
    2329Balaam seide to hym, Bilde here seuene auteris to me, and make redi so many caluys, and rammes of the same noumbre.
    2330Balaach dide as Balaam seide, and he puttide caluys and rammes, bi alle auteris.
    2401And whanne Balaam siy that it pleside the Lord that he schulde blesse Israel, he yede not as he 'hadde go bifore, 'that he schulde seke fals dyuynyng 'bi chiteryng of briddis, but he dresside his face ayens the desert,
    2402and reiside iyen, and siy Israel dwellynge in tentis bi hise lynagis. And whanne the Spirit of God felde on hym, and whanne a parable was takun,
    2403he seide, Balaam, the sone of Beor, seide, a man whois iye is stoppid seide,
    2404the herere of Goddis wordis seide, which bihelde the reuelacioun of almyyti God, which fallith doun, and hise iyen ben openyd so, Hou faire ben thi tabernaclis,
    2405Jacob, and thi tentis, Israel!
    2406as valeys ful of woodis, and moiste gardyns bisidis floodis, as tabernaclis whiche the Lord hath set, as cedris bisidis watris;
    2407watir schal flowe of his bokat, and his seed schal be in to many watris, 'that is, puplis. The kyng of hym schal be takun a wei for Agag, and the rewme of hym schal be doon awai.
    2408God ledde hym out of Egipt, whos strengthe is lijk an vnicorn; thei schulen deuoure hethene men, enemyes 'of hym, that is, of Israel; and thei schulen breke the boonus of hem, and schulen perse with arowis.
    2409He restide and slepte as a lyoun, and as a lionesse, whom no man schal dore reise. He that blessith thee, schal be blessid; he that cursith, schal
    2410be arettid in to cursyng And Balaach was wrooth ayens Balaam, and seide, whanne the hondis weren wrungun to gidere, I clepide thee to curse myn enemyes, whiche ayenward thou hast blessid thries.
    2411Turne ayen to thi place; forsothe Y demede to onoure thee greetli, but the Lord priuyde thee fro onour disposid.
    2412Balaam answeride to Balaach, Whethir Y seide not to thi messangeris, whiche thou sentist to me,
    2413Thouy Balaach schal yyue to me his hows ful of siluer and of gold, Y schal not mow passe the word of my Lord God, that Y brynge forth of myn herte ony thing, ethir of good ethir of yuel, but what euer thing the Lord schal seie, Y schal speke this?
    2414Netheles Y schal go to my puple, and Y schal yyue counsel to thee, what thi puple schal do in the laste tyme to this puple.
    2415Therfor whanne a parable was takun, he seide eft, Balaam, the sone of Beor seide, a man whos iye is stoppid,
    2416seide, the herere of Goddis wordis seide, which knowith the doctrine of the hiyeste, and seeth the reuelacioun of almiyti God, which fallith doun and hath opyn iyen,
    2417Y schal se hym, but not now; Y schal biholde hym, but not nyy; a sterre schal be borun of Jacob, and a yerde schal rise of Israel; and he schal smyte the duykis of Moab, and he schal waste alle the sones of Seth; and Ydumye schal be hys possessioun,
    2418the eritage of Seir schal bifalle to his enemyes; forsothe Israel schal do strongli, of Jacob schal be he that schal be lord,
    2419and schal leese the relikis of the citee.
    2420And whanne he hadde seyn Amalech, he took a parable, and seide, Amalech is the bigynning of hethene men, whos laste thingis schulen be lost.
    2421Also 'he siy Cyney, and whanne a parable was takun, he seide, Forsothe thi dwellyng place is strong, but if thou schalt sette thi nest in a stoon,
    2422and schalt be chosun of the generacioun of Cyn, hou longe schalt thou mow dwelle? forsothe Assur schal take thee.
    2423And whanne a parable was takun, he spak eft, Alas! who schal lyue, whanne the Lord schal make thes thingis?
    2424Thei schulen come in grete schippis fro Ytalie, thei schulen ouercome Assiries, and thei schulen distrie Ebrews, and at the last also thei hem silf schulen perische.
    2425And Balaam roos, and turnide ayen in to his place; and Balaach yede ayen bi the weye in which he cam.
    2501Forsothe in that tyme Israel dwellide in Sechym; and the puple dide fornycacioun with the douytris of Moab;
    2502whiche douytris clepiden hem to her sacrifices, and thei eten, and worschipiden the goddis of tho douytris;
    2503and Israel made sacrifice to Belphegor. And the Lord was wrooth,
    2504and seide to Moises, Take thou alle the princes of the puple, and hange hem ayens the sunne in iebatis, that my wodnesse, 'that is stronge veniaunce, be turned awai fro Israel.
    2505And Moises seide to the iugis of Israel, Ech man sle his neiyboris, that maden sacrifice to Belphagor.
    2506And, lo! oon of the sones of Israel entride bifor his britheren to 'an hoore of Madian, in the siyt of Moises, and al the cumpeny of the sones of Israel, whiche wepten bifor the yatis of the tabernacle.
    2507And whanne Phynees, the sone of Eleazar, sone of Aaron, preest, hadde seyn this, he roos fro the myddis of the multitude; and whanne he hadde take a swerd,
    2508he entride aftir the man of Israel in to the 'hoore hows, and stikide thorou both togidere, that is, the man and the womman, in the places of gendryng. And the veniaunce ceesside fro the sones of Israel,
    2509and foure and twenti thousand of men weren slayn.
    2510And the Lord seide to Moises,
    2511Fynees, the sone of Eleazar, sone of Aaron, preest, turnede away myn yre fro the sones of Israel; for he was stirid ayens hem bi my feruent loue, that Y my silf schulde not do awai the sones of Israel in my greet hete, 'ether strong veniaunce.
    2512Therfor speke thou to hym, Lo! Y yyue to hym the pees of my couenaunt,
    2513and it schal be an euerlastynge couenaunt of preesthod, as wel to hym silf as to his seed; for he louyde feruentli for his God, and he clenside the greet trespas of the sones of Israel.
    2514Forsothe the name of the man of Israel, that was slayn with the womman of Madian, was Zambri, the sone of Salu, duyk of the kynrede and lynage of Symeon.
    2515Forsothe the womman of Madian that was slayn togidere, was clepid Cobri, the douyter of Sur, the nobleste prince of Madianytis.
    2516And the Lord spak to Moises and seide,
    2517Madianytis feele you enemyes, and smyte ye hem;
    2518for also thei diden enemyliche ayens you, and disseyueden thorow tresouns, bi the idol of Phegor, and bi 'the douyter of Corbri, duyk of Madian, her sister, which douyter was sleyn in the dai of veniaunce, for the sacrilege of Phegor.
    2601Aftir that the blood of gilti men was sched out, the Lord seide to Moises and to Eleasar,

    3001And Moises telde to the sones of Israel alle thingis whiche the Lord comaundide to hym.
    3002And he spak to the princes of the lynagis of the sones of Israel, This is the word, which the Lord comaundide, If ony of men makith a vowe to the Lord,
    3003ethir byndith hym silf bi an ooth, he schal not make voide his word, but he schal fille al thing which he bihiyte.
    3004If a womman which is in the hows of hir fadir, and is yit in the age of a damysel, 'that is, not yit weddid, avowith ony thing, ethir byndith hir silf bi an ooth, 'if the fadir knowith the avow, which sche bihiyte, and the ooth bi which sche boond hir soule, and he is stille, sche schal be gilti of the ooth, that is, boundun bi the ooth;
    3005what euer thing sche bihiyte and swoor, sche schall fille in werk.
    3006Forsothe if the fadir ayenseide anoon as he herde, bothe the vowis and 'oothis of hir schulen be voide, and sche schal not be holdun boundun to the biheeste, for the fadir ayenseide.
    3007If sche hath an hosebonde, and avowith ony thing, and a word goynge out of hir mouth onys byndith hir soule with an ooth,
    3008in what dai the hosebonde herith, and ayenseith not, sche schal be gilti 'of avow; sche schal yelde, what euer thing sche bihiyte.
    3009But if the hosebonde herith, and anoon ayenseith, and makith void alle hir biheestis, and wordis bi whiche sche boond hir soule, the Lord schal be merciful to hir.
    3010A widewe, and a womman forsakun of hir hosebonde, schulen yelde, what euer thing thei avowen.
    3011Whanne a wijf in 'the hous of hir hosebonde byndith hir silf bi a vow and an ooth,
    3012if the hosebonde herith, and is stille and ayenseith not the biheest, sche schal yelde, what euer thing sche bihiyte.
    3013Sotheli if the hosebonde ayenseide anoon, sche schal not be holdun gilti of biheest, for the hosebonde ayenseide, and the Lord schal be merciful to hir.
    3014If sche avowith, and byndith hir silf bi an ooth, that sche turmente hir soule bi fastyng, ethir bi abstynence of othere thingis, it schal be in the doom of the hosebonde, that sche do, ether do not.

These ben the lawis, which the Lord ordeynede to Moyses bitwixe the hosebonde and the wijf, bitwixe the fadir and the douytir, which is yit in the age of a damysel, 'that is, not yit maried, 'ether which dwellith in 'the hows of the fadir.
    3101And the Lord spak to Moyses, and seide,
    3102Venge thou firste the sones of Israel of Madianytis, and so thou schalt be gaderid to thi puple.
    3103And anoon Moises seide, Arme ye men of you to batel, that moun take of Madianytis the veniaunce of the Lord.
    3104Of ech lynage be chosun a thousynde men of Israel, that schulen be sent to batel.
    3105And of ech lynage thei yauen a thousynde, that is twelue thousynde of men, redi to batel;
    3106whiche Moises sente with Fynees, the sone of Eleazar, preest. And he bitook to hem hooli vesselis, and trumpis to make sown.
    3107And whanne thei hadden fouyt ayens Madianytis, and hadden ouercome, thei killiden alle the malis,
    3108and 'the kyngis of hem, Euy, and Reem, and Sur, and Hur, and Rebe, fyue princes of 'the folc of hem. Also thei killiden bi swerd Balaam, the sone of Beor.
    3109And thei token the wymmen of hem, and the litle children, and alle beestis, and al purtenaunce of howshold; what euer thei myyten haue, thei spuyleden;
    3110flawme brente as wel citees, as litle townes and castels.
    3111And they token pray, and alle thingis whiche thei hadden take, as wel of men as of beestis, and thei brouyten to Moyses,

    3113Moises and Eleazar, preest, and alle the princes of the synagoge, yeden out in to the comyng of hem, with out the castels, 'that is, of the tabernacle.
    3114And Moises was wrooth to the princes of the oost, to tribunes, and centuriouns, that camen fro batel;
    3115and he seide, Whi reserueden ye wymmen?
    3116whether it be not these that disseyueden the sones of Israel, at the suggestioun of Balaam, and maden you to do trespas ayens the Lord, on the synne of Phegor, wherfor also the puple was slayn?
    3117And therfor sle ye alle men, what euer thing is of male kynde, and litle children; and strangle ye the wymmen that knew men fleischli;
    3118forsothe reserue ye to you damesels, and alle wymmen virgyns,
    3119and dwelle ye with out the castels in seuene daies. He that sleeth a man, ether touchith a slayn man, schal be clensid in the thridde and the seuenthe dai;
    3120and of al the pray, whether it is clooth, ether vessel, and ony thing maad redi in to thingis perteynynge to vss, of the skynnys and heeris of geet, and 'of tre, it schal be clensid.
    3121And Eleazar, preest, spak thus to the men of the oost that fouyten, This is the comaundement of the lawe, which the Lord comaundide to Moises,
    3122The gold, and siluer, and bras, and yrun, and tiyn, and leed, and al thing that may passe by flawme, schal be purgid bi fier;
    3123sotheli what euer thing may not suffre fier, schal be halewid bi the watir of clensyng.
    3124And ye schulen waische youre clothis in the seuenthe dai, and ye schulen be clensid; and aftirward ye schulen entre in to the castels 'of the tabernacle.
    3125And the Lord seide to Moises, Take ye the summe of tho thingis that ben takun, fro man 'til to beeste,
    3126thou, and Eleazar, preest, and alle the princes of the comyn puple.
    3127And thou schalt departe euenli the prey bytwixe hem that fouyten and yeden out to batel, and bitwixe al the multitude.
    3128And thou schalt departe a part to the Lord, of hem that fouyten, and weren in batel, 'o soule of fiue hundrid, as wel of men, as of oxun, and of assis, and of scheep.
    3129And thou schalt yyue 'that part to Eleazar, preest, for tho ben the firste fruytis of the Lord.
    3130Also of the myddil part of the sones of Israel, thou schalt take the fiftithe heed of men, and of oxun, and of assis, and of scheep, and of alle lyuynge beestis; and thou schalt yyue tho to the dekenes, that waken in the kepyngis of the tabernacle of the Lord.
    3131And Moyses and Eleazar diden, as the Lord comaundide.
    3132Forsothe the prey which the oost hadde take, was sixe hundrid fyue and seuenti thousynde of scheep,
    3133of oxun two and seuenti thousynde,
    3134of assis sixti thousynde and a thousynde;

    3136And the myddil part was youun to hem that weren in the batel, of scheep thre hundrid seuene and thretti thousynde and fyue hundrid;
    3137of whiche sixe hundrid fyue and seuenti scheep weren noumbrid in to the part of the Lord;

    3140of sixtene thousynde persoones of men, twei and thretti persoones bifelden in to the 'part of the Lord.
    3141And Moises bitook the noumbre of the firste fruytis of the Lord to Eleazar, preest, as it was comaundid to hym,
    3142of the myddil part of the sones of Israel, which he departide to hem that weren in batel.
    3143And of the myddil part that bifelde to the tother multitude, that is, of thre hundrid seuene and thretti thousynde scheep and fyue hundrid,
    3144and of sixe and thretti thousynde oxun,
    3145and of thretti thousynde assis and fyue hundrid, and of sixtene thousynde wymmen,
    3146Moyses took the fyftithe heed,
    3147and yaf to the dekenes, that wakiden in the tabernacle of the Lord, as the Lord comaundide.
    3148And whanne the princes of the oost, and the tribunes and centuriouns hadden neiyed to Moises,
    3149thei seiden, We thi seruauntis han teld the noumbre of fiyters, whiche we hadden vndur oure hoond, and sotheli not oon failide;
    3150for which cause we offren 'in the fre yiftis of the Lord, alle bi vs silf, that that we myyten fynde of gold in the pray, girdelis for 'the myddil of wymmen, and bies of the armes, and ryngis, and ournementis of the arm nyy the hond, and bies of the neckis of wymmen, that thou preye the Lord for vs.

    3153For that that ech man rauyschide in the prey, was his owne;
    3154and thei baren the gold taken in to the tabernacle of witnessyng, in to the mynde of the sones of Israel, bifor the Lord.
    3201Forsothe the sones of Ruben and of Gad hadden many beestis, and catel with out noumbre was to hem, in werk beestis. And whanne thei hadden seyn Jazer and Galaad, couenable londis to beestis to be fed,
    3202thei camen to Moyses and Eleazar, preest, and to the princes of the multitude, and seiden,

    3205and we preyen, if we han founde grace bifor thee, that thou yyue to vs thi seruauntis that cuntrey in to possessioun, and make not vs to passe Jordan.
    3206To whiche Moises answeride, Whether youre britheren schulen go to batel, and ye schulen sitte here?
    3207Whi peruerten ye the soulis of Israel, that thei doren not passe in to the place, which the Lord schal yyue to hem?
    3208Whether youre fadris diden not so, whanne Y sente fro Cades Barne to aspie the lond,
    3209and whanne thei camen to the valey of Clustre, whanne al the cuntrey was cumpassid, thei peruertiden the herte of the sones of Israel, that thei entriden not in to the coostis, whiche the Lord yaf to hem.
    3210And the Lord was wrooth, and swoor,

    3212outakun Caleph, Cenezei, the sone of Jephone, and Josue, the sone of Nun; these tweyne filliden my wille.
    3213And the Lord was wrooth ayens Israel, and ledde hym aboute the deseert bi fourti yeer, til al the generacioun was wastid, that hadde do yuel in the 'siyt of the Lord.
    3214And Moyses seide, Lo! ye encressyngis, and nurreis, 'ether nurschid children, of synful men, han ryse for youre fadris, that ye schulden encreesse the strong veniaunce of the Lord ayens Israel.
    3215That if ye nylen sue the Lord, in 'the wildirnesse he schal forsake the puple, and ye schulen be cause of the deeth of alle men.
    3216And thei neiyiden nyy, and seiden, We schulen make foldis of scheep, and the stablis of beestis, and we schulen make strengthid citees to oure litle children.
    3217Forsothe we vs silf schulen be armed 'to defence, and schulen be gird 'with armeris to asailyng, and schulen go to batel bifor the sones of Israel, til we bryngen hem in to her places; oure litle children and what euer thing we moun haue, schulen be in strengthid cytees, for the tresouns of the dwelleris.
    3218We schulen not turne ayen in to oure housis, til the sones of Israel welden her eritage;
    3219and we schulen not axe ony thing ouer Jordan, for we han now oure possessioun in the eest coost therof.
    3220To whiche Moises seide, If ye doen that, that ye biheten, be ye maad redi, and go ye to batel bifor the Lord;
    3221and ech man fiytere be armed, and passe Jordan, til the Lord distrye hise enemyes,
    3222and al the lond be maad suget to hym; thanne ye schulen be giltles anentis God, and anentis Israel, and ye schulen holde the cuntreys, whiche ye wolen, bifor the Lord.
    3223But if ye doon not that, that ye seien, it is not doute to ony man, that ne ye synnen ayens God; and wite ye, that youre synne schal take you.
    3224Therfor bilde ye citees to youre litle children, and foldis and stablis to scheep, and to beestis; and fille ye that, that ye bihiyten.
    3225And the sones of Gad and of Ruben seiden to Moises, We ben thi seruauntis; we schulen do that, that oure lord comaundith.
    3226We schulen leeue oure litle children, and wymmen, and scheep, and beestis in the citees of Galaad;
    3227forsothe alle we thi seruauntis schulen go redi to batel, as thou, lord, spekist.
    3228Therfor Moyses comaundide to Eleazar, preest, and to Josue, the sone of Nun, and to the princes of meynees, bi the lynagis of Israel, and seide to hem,
    3229If the sones of Gad, and the sones of Ruben goen alle armed with you, to batel bifor the Lord, and the lond be maad suget to you, yyue ye to hem Galaad in to possessioun;
    3230but if thei nylen passe with you in to the lond of Chanaan, take thei places to dwelle among you.
