+ 698 Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success. Swami Vivekananda

+ 325 Do good to your friends to keep them, to your enemies to win them. Benjamin Franklin


+ 308 A happy family is but an earlier heaven. George Bernard Shaw


+ 445 Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They're keeping up with their friends and family, but they're also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They're connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It's almost a disadvantage if you're not on it now. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 358 There are lots of people in the Silicon Valley who are interested in working at a fast-moving, dynamic company like Google. Not just my family members. Susan Wojcicki


+ 365 What is a wife and what is a harlot? What is a church and what is a theatre? are they two and not one? Can they exist separate? Are not religion and politics the same thing? Brotherhood is religion. O demonstrations of reason dividing families in cruelty and pride! William Blake


+ 354 A family on the throne is an interesting idea. It brings down the pride of sovereignty to the level of petty life. Walter Bagehot

+ 391 Being a Barrymore didn't help me, other than giving me a great sense of pride and a strange spiritual sense that I felt OK about having the passion to act. It made sense because my whole family had done it and it helped rationalise it for me. Drew Barrymore


+ 289 I can't re-examine work I did in the past with pride. Daniel Day-Lewis


+ 369 After all these years I had the privilege of naming my private part, cause we have nicknames. So I named my private part pride... it's not much but at least I have my pride. Jay London


+ 359 Look, I've got incredible pride for my family. I've absolutely fallen into that cliche of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly. Christian Bale


+ 339 I have a Damien Hirst spot painting which I love. It has pride of place over my dining-room table. Cat Deeley


+ 335 I don't know whether it is fortunate or unfortunate, but I have no such thing as national pride. I don't feel proud that I am Iranian. I happen to be who I am. Abbas Kiarostami


+ 416 Playing football and rugby is the Samoan sport. It's part of the conversation at church. It's part of the conversation in their barbershops, in the grocery stores. It's what everyone is aware of and familiar with. They take a lot of pride in the beating you can take in the course of that sport. Junior Seau


+ 313 My family pride is something inconceivable. I can't help it. I was born sneering. William Gilbert


+ 359 The pride people take in their work transcends to their homes, their education, families and communities. Leonard Boswell


+ 396 He's a family man and a businessman. He spent his career building successful companies. Then, he saved the 2002 Olympics and brought pride to our nation. As governor, he balanced the budget, cut taxes, and created jobs. The president America needs is Mitt Romney! Reince Priebus


+ 268 Pride in boasting of family antiquity, makes duration stand for merit. John Zimmerman


+ 365 So finally, I can feel a sort of pride in all my family - Mum, Lynn, Corin, Tasha, my cousin Gemma - because, I think how wonderful that this troop of gypsies can carry on telling stories. Joely Richardson


+ 382 We continue to fight for good jobs that pay well and jobs that last. Helping to get folks back to work is about helping them to regain their dignity and pride. That's what families care about. Jodi Rell


+ 416 Suffering becomes beautiful when anyone bears great calamities with cheerfulness, not through insensibility but through greatness of mind. Aristotle


+ 281 The unexamined life is not worth living. Socrates


+ 481 I shall never cease from the practice and teaching of philosophy, exhorting anyone whom I meet after my manner, and convincing him, saying: O my friend, why do you who are a citizen of the great and mighty and wise city of Athens, care so much about laying up the greatest amount of money and honor and reputation, and so little about wisdom and truth and the greatest improvement of the soul, which you never regard or heed at all? Are you not ashamed of this? And if the person with whom I an arguing says: Yes, but I do care: I do not depart or let him go at once; I interrogate and examine and cross-examine him, and if I think that he has no virtue, but only says that he has, I reproach him with overvaluing the greater, and undervaluing the less. ...For this is the command of God, as I would have you know...


+ 460 Someone will say: Yes, Socrates, but cannot you hold your tongue, and then you may go into a foreign city, and no one will interfere with you? Now I have great difficulty in making you understand my answer to this. For if I tell you that this would be a disobedience to a divine command, and therefore that I cannot hold my tongue, you will not believe that I am serious; and if I say that the greatest good of a man is daily to converse about virtue, and all that concerning which you hear me examining myself and others, and that the life which is unexamined is not worth living — that you are still less likely to believe.


+ 308 The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being. Socrates


+ 459 When I was young, Cebes, I had a prodigious desire to know the department of philosophy which is called Natural Science; this appeared to me to have lofty aims, as being the science which has to do with the causes of things, and which teaches why a thing is, and is created and destroyed; and I always agitated myself with the consideration of such questions as these... I went on to examine the decay of them, and then to the study of the heaven and earth, and at last I concluded that I was wholly incapable of these inquiries... There was a time when I thought that I understood the meaning of greater and less pretty well... that ten is more than eight, and that two cubits are more than one, because two is twice one. I should be far from imagining... that I knew the cause of any of them, indeed I should, for I cannot satisfy myself that when one is added to one, the one to which the addition is made becomes two... nor can I understand how the division of one is the way to make two; for then a different cause would produce the same effect.


+ 407 It may be said, indeed, that without bones and muscles and the other parts of the body I cannot execute my purposes. But to say that I do as I do because of them, and that this is the way in which the mind acts, and not from the choice of the best, is a very careless and idle mode of speaking. I wonder that they cannot distinguish the cause from the condition, which the many, feeling about in the dark, are always mistaking and misnaming.


+ 481 What do you say about making a libation out of this cup to any god? ...I may and I must pray to the gods to prosper my journey from this to that other world--may this, then, which is my prayer, be granted to me. [Then holding the cup to his lips, quite readily and cheerfully he drank off the poison. And hitherto most of us had been able to control their sorrow; but now, when we saw him drinking, and saw too, that he had finished the draft, we could no longer forbear, and in spite of myself my own tears were flowing fast; so that I covered my face and wept over myself, for certainly I was not weeping over him, but at my own calamity at having lost such a companion. Nor was I the first, for Crito, when he found himself unable to restrain his tears, had got up, and moved away, and I followed; and at that moment, Apollodorus, who had been weeping all the time, broke out in a loud cry which made cowards of us all. Socrates alone retained his calmness:] What is this strange outcry? ...I sent away the women mainly in order that they might not offend in this way, for I have heard that a man should die in peace. Be quiet then, and have patience.


+ 285 Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent. Dalai Lama


+ 266 A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats. Benjamin Franklin


+ 273 A good conscience is a continual Christmas. Benjamin Franklin


+ 335 In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. James Madison


+ 429 We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and those powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the existing colonies or dependencies of any European power we have not interfered and shall not interfere. But with the Governments who have declared their independence and maintain it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose of oppressing them, or controlling in any other manner their destiny, by any European power in any other light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the United States. James Monroe


+ 327 Well may the boldest fear and the wisest tremble when incurring responsibilities on which may depend our country's peace and prosperity, and in some degree the hopes and happiness of the whole human family. James K. Polk


+ 542 I do not believe that our friends at the South have any just idea of the state of feeling, hurrying at this moment to a pitch of intense exasperation, between those who respect their political obligations, and those who apparently have no impelling power but that which a fanatical position on the subject of domestic Slavery imparts. Without discussing the question of right — of abstract power to secede — I have never believed that actual disruption of the Union can occur without blood; and if, through the madness of Northern Abolitionists, that dire calamity must come, the fighting will not be along Mason's and Dixon's line merely. It will be within our own borders, in our own streets, between the two classes of citizens to whom I have referred. Franklin Pierce


+ 416 Do we not all know that the cause of our casualties is the vicious intermeddling of too many of the citizens of the Northern States with the constitutional rights of the Southern States, cooperating with the discontents of the people of those states? Do we not know that the disregard of the Constitution, and of the security that it affords to the rights of States and of individuals, has been the cause of the calamity which our country is called to undergo? And now, war! war, in its direst shape — war, such as it makes the blood run cold to read of in the history of other nations and of other times — war, on a scale of a million of men in arms — war, horrid as that of barbaric ages, rages in several of the States of the Union, as its more immediate field, and casts the lurid shadow of its death and lamentation athwart the whole expanse, and into every nook and corner of our vast domain. Franklin Pierce


+ 332 We have nothing in our history or position to invite aggression; we have everything to beckon us to the cultivation of relations of peace and amity with all nations. Franklin Pierce


+ 547 Accounts of outrages committed by mobs form the every-day news of the times. They have pervaded the country from New England to Louisiana, they are neither peculiar to the eternal snows of the former nor the burning suns of the latter; they are not the creature of climate, neither are they confined to the slaveholding or the non-slaveholding States. Alike they spring up among the pleasure-hunting masters of Southern slaves, and the order-loving citizens of the land of steady habits. Whatever then their cause may be, it is common to the whole country. [...] Such are the effects of mob law, and such are the scenes becoming more and more frequent in this land so lately famed for love of law and order, and the stories of which have even now grown too familiar to attract anything more than an idle remark. But you are perhaps ready to ask, "What has this to do with the perpetuation of our political institutions?" I answer, "It has much to do with it." Its direct consequences are, comparatively speaking, but a small evil, and much of its danger consists in the proneness of our minds to regard its direct as its only consequences. Abraham Lincoln


+ 392 But all this even, is not the full extent of the evil. — By such examples, by instances of the perpetrators of such acts going unpunished, the lawless in spirit, are encouraged to become lawless in practice; and having been used to no restraint, but dread of punishment, they thus become, absolutely unrestrained. — Having ever regarded Government as their deadliest bane, they make a jubilee of the suspension of its operations; and pray for nothing so much, as its total annihilation. While, on the other hand, good men, men who love tranquillity, who desire to abide by the laws and enjoy their benefits, who would gladly spill their blood in the defense of their country, seeing their property destroyed, their families insulted, and their lives endangered, their persons injured, and seeing nothing in prospect that forebodes a change for the better, become tired of and disgusted with a government that offers them no protection, and are not much averse to a change in which they imagine they have nothing to lose. Thus, then, by the operation of this mobocratic spirit which all must admit is now abroad in the land, the strongest bulwark of any government, and particularly of those constituted like ours, may effectually be broken down and destroyed—I mean the attachment of the people. Abraham Lincoln


+ 495 It is to deny, what the history of the world tells us is true, to suppose that men of ambition and talents will not continue to spring up amongst us. And, when they do, they will as naturally seek the gratification of their ruling passion, as others have so done before them. The question then, is, can that gratification be found in supporting and maintaining an edifice that has been erected by others? Most certainly it cannot. Many great and good men sufficiently qualified for any task they should undertake, may ever be found, whose ambition would inspire to nothing beyond a seat in Congress, a gubernatorial or a presidential chair; but such belong not to the family of the lion, or the tribe of the eagle. What! think you these places would satisfy an Alexander, a Caesar, or a Napoleon? — Never! Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored. — It sees no distinction in adding story to story, upon the monuments of fame, erected to the memory of others. It denies that it is glory enough to serve under any chief. It scorns to tread in the footsteps of any predecessor, however illustrious. It thirsts and burns for distinction; and, if possible, it will have it, whether at the expense of emancipating slaves, or enslaving freemen. Is it unreasonable then to expect, that some man possessed of the loftiest genius, coupled with ambition sufficient to push it to its utmost stretch, will at some time, spring up among us? And when such a one does, it will require the people to be united with each other, attached to the government and laws, and generally intelligent, to successfully frustrate his designs. Abraham Lincoln


+ 461 I mean the powerful influence which the interesting scenes of the Revolution had upon the passions of the people as distinguished from their judgment. By this influence, the jealousy, envy, and avarice incident to our nature and so common to a state of peace, prosperity, and conscious strength, were for the time in a great measure smothered and rendered inactive, while the deep-rooted principles of hate, and the powerful motive of revenge, instead of being turned against each other, were directed exclusively against the British nation. And thus, from the force of circumstances, the basest principles of our nature, were either made to lie dormant, or to become the active agents in the advancement of the noblest cause — that of establishing and maintaining civil and religious liberty. But this state of feeling must fade, is fading, has faded, with the circumstances that produced it. I do not mean to say that the scenes of the Revolution are now or ever will be entirely forgotten, but that, like everything else, they must fade upon the memory of the world, and grow more and more dim by the lapse of time. In history, we hope, they will be read of, and recounted, so long as the Bible shall be read; but even granting that they will, their influence cannot be what it heretofore has been. Even then they cannot be so universally known nor so vividly felt as they were by the generation just gone to rest. At the close of that struggle, nearly every adult male had been a participator in some of its scenes. The consequence was that of those scenes, in the form of a husband, a father, a son, or a brother, a living history was to be found in every family—a history bearing the indubitable testimonies of its own authenticity, in the limbs mangled, in the scars of wounds received, in the midst of the very scenes related—a history, too, that could be read and understood alike by all, the wise and the ignorant, the learned and the unlearned. But those histories are gone. They can be read no more forever. They were a fortress of strength; but what invading foeman could never do, the silent artillery of time has done—the leveling of its walls. They are gone. They were a forest of giant oaks; but the all-restless hurricane has swept over them, and left only here and there a lonely trunk, despoiled of its verdure, shorn of its foliage, unshading and unshaded, to murmur in a few more gentle breezes, and to combat with its mutilated limbs a few more ruder storms, then to sink and be no more. They were pillars of the temple of liberty; and now that they have crumbled away that temple must fall unless we, their descendants, supply their places with other pillars, hewn from the solid quarry of sober reason. Abraham Lincoln


+ 361 I am now the most miserable man living. If what I feel were equally distributed to the whole human family, there would not be one cheerful face on the earth. Whether I shall ever be better I can not tell; I awfully forebode I shall not. To remain as I am is impossible; I must die or be better, it appears to me. Abraham Lincoln


+ 371 Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere. Destroy this spirit, and you have planted the seeds of despotism around your own doors. Familiarize yourselves with the chains of bondage and you are preparing your own limbs to wear them. Accustomed to trample on the rights of those around you, you have lost the genius of your own independence, and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises. Abraham Lincoln


+ 511 I think the authors of that notable instrument intended to include all men, but they did not intend to declare all men equal in all respects. They did not mean to say all were equal in color, size, intellect, moral developments, or social capacity. They defined with tolerable distinctness, in what respects they did consider all men created equal-equal in "certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This they said, and this meant. They did not mean to assert the obvious untruth, that all were then actually enjoying that equality, nor yet, that they were about to confer it immediately upon them. In fact they had no power to confer such a boon. They meant simply to declare the right, so that the enforcement of it might follow as fast as circumstances should permit. They meant to set up a standard maxim for free society, which should be familiar to all, and revered by all; constantly looked to, constantly labored for, and even though never perfectly attained, constantly approximated, and thereby constantly spreading and deepening its influence, and augmenting the happiness and value of life to all people of all colors everywhere. The assertion that "all men are created equal" was of no practical use in effecting our separation from Great Britain; and it was placed in the Declaration, nor for that, but for future use. Its authors meant it to be, thank God, it is now proving itself, a stumbling block to those who in after times might seek to turn a free people back into the hateful paths of despotism. They knew the proneness of prosperity to breed tyrants, and they meant when such should re-appear in this fair land and commence their vocation they should find left for them at least one hard nut to crack. I have now briefly expressed my view of the meaning and objects of that part of the Declaration of Independence which declares that "all men are created equal". Abraham Lincoln


+ 369 We shall lie down pleasantly dreaming that the people of Missouri are on the verge of making their State free, and we shall awake to the reality instead, that the Supreme Court has made Illinois a slave State. Abraham Lincoln


+ 442 Now, I have upon all occasions declared as strongly as Judge Douglas against the disposition to interfere with the existing institution of slavery. You hear me read it from the same speech from which he takes garbled extracts for the purpose of proving upon me a disposition to interfere with the institution of slavery, and establish a perfect social and political equality between negroes and white people. Allow me while upon this subject briefly to present one other extract from a speech of mine, more than a year ago, at Springfield, in discussing this very same question, soon after Judge Douglas took his ground that negroes were not included in the Declaration of Independence: I think the authors of that notable instrument intended to include all men, but they did not mean to declare all men equal in all respects. They did not mean to say all men were equal in color, size, intellect, moral development, or social capacity. They defined with tolerable distinctness in what they did consider all men created equal — equal in "certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This they said, and this they meant. They did not mean to assert the obvious untruth that all were then actually enjoying that equality, or yet that they were about to confer it immediately upon them. In fact, they had no power to confer such a boon. They meant simply to declare the right, so that the enforcement of it might follow as fast as circumstances should permit. They meant to set up a standard maxim for free society which should be familiar to all, constantly looked to, constantly labored for, and even, though never perfectly attained, constantly approximated, and thereby constantly spreading and deepening its influence, and augmenting the happiness and value of life to all people, of all colors, everywhere. Abraham Lincoln


+ 331 I have had a son killed, a son-in-law die during the last battle of Nashville, another son has thrown himself away, a second son-in-law is in no better condition, I think I have had sorrow enough without having my bank account examined by a Committee of Congress. Andrew Johnson


+ 309 For honest merit to succeed amid the tricks and intrigues which are now so lamentably common, I know is difficult; but the honor of success is increased by the obstacles which are to be surmounted. Let me triumph as a man or not at all. Rutherford B. Hayes


+ 439 Twenty-five years ago this Republic was bearing and wearing a triple chain of bondage. Long familiarity with traffic in the bodies and souls of men had paralyzed the consciences of a majority of our people; the narrowing and disintegrating doctrine of State sovereignty had shackled and weakened the noblest and most beneficent powers of the national government; and the grasping power of slavery was seizing upon the virgin territories of the West, and dragging them into the den of eternal bondage. At that crisis the Republican party was born. It drew its first inspiration from that fire of liberty which God has lighted in every human heart, and which all the powers of ignorance and tyranny can never wholly extinguish. The Republican party came to deliver and to save. James A. Garfield


+ 370 Amid the din of party strife the people's choice was made, but its attendant circumstances have demonstrated anew the strength and safety of a government by the people. In each succeeding year it more clearly appears that our democratic principle needs no apology, and that in its fearless and faithful application is to be found the surest guaranty of good government. But the best results in the operation of a government wherein every citizen has a share largely depend upon a proper limitation of purely partisan zeal and effort and a correct appreciation of the time when the heat of the partisan should be merged in the patriotism of the citizen.


+ 290 We Americans have no commission from God to police the world. Benjamin Harrison


+ 295 I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces the cloth will starve in the process. Benjamin Harrison


+ 318 God forbid that the day should ever come when, in the American mind, the thought of man as a "consumer" shall submerge the old American thought of man as a creature of God, endowed with "unalienable rights. Benjamin Harrison


+ 398 There is no constitutional or legal requirement that the President shall take the oath of office in the presence of the people, but there is so manifest an appropriateness in the public induction to office of the chief executive officer of the nation that from the beginning of the Government the people, to whose service the official oath consecrates the officer, have been called to witness the solemn ceremonial. The oath taken in the presence of the people becomes a mutual covenant. The officer covenants to serve the whole body of the people by a faithful execution of the laws, so that they may be the unfailing defense and security of those who respect and observe them, and that neither wealth, station, nor the power of combinations shall be able to evade their just penalties or to wrest them from a beneficent public purpose to serve the ends of cruelty or selfishness. Benjamin Harrison


+ 391 The virtues of courage and patriotism have given recent proof of their continued presence and increasing power in the hearts and over the lives of our people. The influences of religion have been multiplied and strengthened. The sweet offices of charity have greatly increased. The virtue of temperance is held in higher estimation. We have not attained an ideal condition. Not all of our people are happy and prosperous; not all of them are virtuous and law-abiding. But on the whole the opportunities offered to the individual to secure the comforts of life are better than are found elsewhere and largely better than they were here one hundred years ago. Benjamin Harrison


+ 369 The good citizen is the man who, whatever his wealth or his poverty, strives manfully to do his duty to himself, to his family, to his neighbor, to the States; who is incapable of the baseness which manifests itself either in arrogance or in envy, but who while demanding justice for himself is no less scrupulous to do justice to others. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 345 There is nothing that a man of loose principles and of evil practices in public life so desires as the chance to distract attention from his own shortcomings and misdeeds by exciting and inflaming theological and sectarian prejudice. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 289 Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 308 Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 280 Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity. John F. Kennedy


+ 347 This is a sad time for all people. We have suffered a loss that cannot be weighed. For me, it is a deep, personal tragedy. I know the world shares the sorrow that Mrs. Kennedy and her family bear. I will do my best; that is all I can do. I ask for your help and God's. Lyndon B. Johnson


+ 420 I'm convinced that today the majority of Americans want what those first Americans wanted: A better life for themselves and their children; a minimum of government authority. Very simply, they want to be left alone in peace and safety to take care of the family by earning an honest dollar and putting away some savings. This may not sound too exciting, but there is something magnificent about it. On the farm, on the street corner, in the factory and in the kitchen, millions of us ask nothing more, but certainly nothing less than to live our own lives according to our values — at peace with ourselves, our neighbors and the world. Ronald Reagan


+ 302 It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label. Barack Obama


+ 292 Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success. Dale Carnegie


+ 256 Every production of genius must be the production of enthusiasm. Benjamin Disraeli


+ 260 There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism. Alexander Hamilton


+ 282 If you have enthusiasm, you have a very dynamic, effective companion to travel with you on the road to Somewhere. Loretta Young


+ 333 If you are not bored by life, and your primary motto is enthusiasm and if you like your friends, family around you, it all translates into your designs. That's what keeps the creativity alive. Christian Louboutin


+ 330 I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


+ 328 The crucial question one comes back to is the examination; without that experience is meaningless. And I think it's true that society is becoming more and more passive, less and less fired up with enthusiasm, in many spheres. Peter Hammill


+ 333 People are patronizing the theatres with renewed enthusiasm - there is an entire picnic-like attitude when families go out to see movies, which is a very good sign. They want to see larger-than-life characters on the big screen and not just watch movies on television or on DVDs. Salman Khan


+ 337 I extend my greetings and good wishes to all our citizens on the joyous occasion of Deepawali. The festival of lights, celebrated with gaiety and enthusiasm all over the country, signifies the victory of good over evil and is an appropriate occasion for us to resolve to follow the high ideals in life. Mohammad Hamid Ansari


+ 414 I drove 3,500 miles this summer on our family holiday, we drove across 10 countries. I have driven across the United States four times. I love cars, I love being in cars, I think so do most people. I want to help and support those people who have that same kind of enthusiasm for driving that I have. Geoff Hoon

+ 369 We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end. Benjamin Disraeli


+ 382 The first magic of love is our ignorance that it can ever end. Benjamin Disraeli


+ 329 A slip of the foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the tongue you may never get over. Benjamin Franklin


+ 361 All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse. Benjamin Franklin


+ 410 It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing — a somewhat unfamiliar conception for the average mind. Furthermore, the equation E = mc?, in which energy is put equal to mass, multiplied by the square of the velocity of light, showed that very small amounts of mass may be converted into a very large amount of energy and vice versa. Albert Einstein

+ 406 I cannot conceive of anything after my physical death—perhaps it will end it all. The knowledge that I am now on this earth and a mysterious part of eternity is enough for me. My death will be an easy one, too, for since early youth I have always detached myself from family, friends, and surroundings. And should I live on, I have no fear of the next life. Whatever good I did helped to free me from myself. What a miserable creature man would be if he were good not for the sake of being good, but because religion told him that he would get a reward after this life, and that if he weren't good he'd be punished. Albert Einstein


+ 297 We believe that the Daoist tradition started as a response to the excesses of civilization. That was Lao Tzu's deal anyway. ~ Oliver Benjamin


+ 344 The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding. Laozi

The motion of drawing back a bow and sending an arrow straight into a target takes only a split second, but it is a skill many years in the making. So it is with a life, anyone's life. ...from the whole cycle of becoming. And if I can tell an old-time story now about a man who is walking about, waudjoset ndatlokugan, a forest lodge man, alesakamigwi udlagwedewugan, it is because I spent many years walking about myself, listening to voices that came not just from the people but from animals and trees and stones."

+ 357 Sometimes we need to stop and say “Thank you for loving me.” It is such a simple thing to say yet it carries so much weight, whether it is with a spouse while you both read your books or it’s with a friend who has been with you through thick and thin or it is to a family member who has loved you from the start. Those words, that thought, the action of saying it to them with purpose and truth can mean the world to them. Because after all, they mean enough for you to say “Thank you for loving me.”

+ 307 In my office in Jerusalem, there's an ancient seal. It's a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible.

+ 344 Perhaps the history of the errors of mankind, all things considered, is more valuable and interesting than that of their discoveries. Truth is uniform and narrow; it constantly exists, and does not seem to require so much an active energy, as a passive aptitude of the soul in order to encounter it. But error is endlessly diversified; it has no reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it. In this field the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities.

+ 315 Concentrate on creating your life the way you want it. Take care of you and your family. Don't get overly concerned with what other people are doing or saying. Don't get caught up with gossip or name calling. Don't judge. Everyone has a right to live their own life the way they want to – including you.

+ 385 Words do not matter much but the emotion behind the words does. The Universe works on vibration. Everything is vibration first and matter second. When you feel an affirming emotion when focusing thought you are now creating dynamic change. Pure thought with positive emotion is said to be the equivalent of 2000 action hours. The problem that many people run into is that they "pretend" to be positive on the outside but are really vibrating negativity on the inside. They might not even be aware of what it is that they are doing. The Law of Attraction is so powerful that it trumps all other laws and forces in the Universe. It never takes time off or breaks and it is always working. It supersedes science, viruses, bacteria, pathogens, parasites, natural disasters, bad luck, heredity, genetics, chance, random, poor diet, too much sugar, astrology, numerology, tea leaves and psychology. Under The Law of Attraction, there are no odds and statistics are meaningless.

+ 210 Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity. Yehuda Amichai


+ 433 Long before it was known to me as a place where my ancestry was even remotely involved, the idea of a state for Jews (or a Jewish state; not quite the same thing, as I failed at first to see) had been 'sold' to me as an essentially secular and democratic one. The idea was a haven for the persecuted and the survivors, a democracy in a region where the idea was poorly understood, and a place where—as Philip Roth had put it in a one-handed novel that I read when I was about nineteen—even the traffic cops and soldiers were Jews. This, like the other emphases of that novel, I could grasp. Indeed, my first visit was sponsored by a group in London called the Friends of Israel. They offered to pay my expenses, that is, if on my return I would come and speak to one of their meetings.

I still haven't submitted that expenses claim. The misgivings I had were of two types, both of them ineradicable. The first and the simplest was the encounter with everyday injustice: by all means the traffic cops were Jews but so, it turned out, were the colonists and ethnic cleansers and even the torturers. It was Jewish leftist friends who insisted that I go and see towns and villages under occupation, and sit down with Palestinian Arabs who were living under house arrest—if they were lucky—or who were squatting in the ruins of their demolished homes if they were less fortunate. In Ramallah I spent the day with the beguiling Raimonda Tawil, confined to her home for committing no known crime save that of expressing her opinions. (For some reason, what I most remember is a sudden exclamation from her very restrained and respectable husband, a manager of the local bank: 'I would prefer living under a Bedouin muktar to another day of Israeli rule!' He had obviously spent some time thinking about the most revolting possible Arab alternative.) In Jerusalem I visited the Tutungi family, who could produce title deeds going back generations but who were being evicted from their apartment in the old city to make way for an expansion of the Jewish quarter. Jerusalem: that place of blood since remote antiquity. Jerusalem, over which the British and French and Russians had fought a foul war in the Crimea, and in the mid-nineteenth century, on the matter of which Christian Church could command the keys to some 'holy sepulcher.' Jerusalem, where the anti-Semite Balfour had tried to bribe the Jews with the territory of another people in order to seduce them from Bolshevism and continue the diplomacy of the Great War. Jerusalem: that pest-house in whose environs all zealots hope that an even greater and final war can be provoked. It certainly made a warped appeal to my sense of history.
Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir


+ 205 Jerusalem is a port city on the shore of eternity. Yehuda Amichai


+ 359 There's a certain amount of ambiguity in my background, what with intermarriages and conversions, but under various readings of three codes which I don’t much respect (Mosaic Law, the Nuremberg Laws, and the Israeli Law of Return) I do qualify as a member of the tribe, and any denial of that in my family has ceased with me. But I would not remove myself to Israel if it meant the continuing expropriation of another people, and if anti-Jewish fascism comes again to the Christian world—or more probably comes at us via the Muslim world—I already consider it an obligation to resist it wherever I live. I would detest myself if I fled from it in any direction. Leo Strauss was right. The Jews will not be 'saved' or 'redeemed.' (Cheer up: neither will anyone else.) They/we will always be in exile whether they are in the greater Jerusalem area or not, and this in some ways is as it should be. They are, or we are, as a friend of Victor Klemperer's once put it to him in a very dark time, condemned and privileged to be 'a seismic people.' A critical register of the general health of civilization is the status of 'the Jewish question.' No insurance policy has ever been devised that can or will cover this risk.

The high wall is the system which forces us to do the things we would not ordinarily see fit to do as individuals . . . We are all human beings, individuals, fragile eggs. We have no hope against the wall: it's too high, too dark, too cold. To fight the wall, we must join our souls together for warmth, strength.

+ 259 Shinto, also kami-no-michi, is the indigenous religion of Japan and the people of Japan. Japanese way to God.


+ 260 Kami are defined in English as "spirits", "essences" or "gods", referring to the energy generating the phenomena.


+ 329 In modern scholarship, the term is often used with reference to kami worship and related theologies, rituals and practices. In these contexts, "Shinto" takes on the meaning of "Japan’s traditional religion", as opposed to foreign religions such as Christianity, Buddhism, Islam and so forth.


+ 326 Amaterasu, Amaterasu-omikami or Ohirume-no-muchi-no-kami is a part of the Japanese myth cycle and also a major deity of the Shinto religion. She is the goddess of the sun, but also of the universe.


+ 280 The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-omikami, is "the great august kami (God) who shines in the heaven".


+ 314 Kami or shin is defined in English as "god", "spirit", "spiritual essence", all these terms meaning the energy generating a thing. Since the Japanese language does not distinguish between singular and plural, kami refers to the divinity, or sacred essence, that manifests in multiple forms. Rocks, trees, rivers, animals, places, and even people can be said to possess the nature of kami. Kami and people exist within the same world and share its interrelated complexity.


+ 308 Shinto gods are collectively called yaoyorozu no kami, an expression literally meaning "eight million kami", but interpreted as meaning "myriad", although it can be translated as "many Kami". There is a phonetic variation, kamu, and a similar word in the Ainu language, kamui. An analogous word is mi-koto.


+ 299 Though the word Kami is translated in multiple ways into English, no one English word expresses its full meaning. In this way, the ambiguity of the meaning of Kami is necessary, as it conveys the ambiguous nature of Kami themselves. As Shinto is an inclusive religion, Kami has been expanded to include Buddhas and the Judeo-Christian God.


+ 282 Kami may, at its root, simply mean "spirit", or an aspect of spirituality. It is written with the kanji, Sino-Japanese reading shin or jin; in Chinese, the character is used to refer to various nature spirits of traditional Chinese religion, but not to the Taoist deities or the Supreme Being.


+ 350 Kami is the Japanese word for a god, deity, divinity, or spirit. It has been used to describe "mind", "God", "supreme being", "one of the Shinto deities", an effigy, a principle and anything that is worshipped. Although "god" or "deity" is the common interpretation of kami, some Shinto scholars argue that such a translation can cause a misunderstanding of the term. The wide variety of usage of the word can be compared to the Sanskrit Deva and the Hebrew Elohim, which also refer to God, gods, angels or spirits.

+ 347 The evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist's point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. ...The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom. The Thirteenth Tribe (1976). Arthur Koestler


+ 322 If Edison had a needle to find in a haystack, he would proceed at once with the diligence of the bee to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. … I was a sorry witness of such doings, knowing that a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety per cent of his labor. Nikola Tesla


+ 328 One day I went alone to the river to enjoy myself as usual. When I was a short distance from the masonry, however, I was horrified to observe that the water had risen and was carrying me along swiftly.… The pressure against my chest was great and I was barely able to keep my head above the surface.… Slowly and gradually I became exhausted and unable to withstand the strain longer. Just as I was about to let go, to be dashed against the rocks below, I saw in a flash of light a familiar diagram illustrating the hydraulic principle that the pressure of a fluid in motion is proportionate to the area exposed and automatically I turned on my left side. As if by magic, the pressure was reduced. Nikola Tesla


+ 341 The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power. My Mother had taught me to seek all truth in the Bible; therefore I devoted the next few months to the study of this work. One day, as I was roaming the mountains, I sought shelter from an approaching storm. The sky became overhung with heavy clouds, but somehow the rain was delayed until, all of a sudden, there was a lightening flash and a few moments after, a deluge. This observation set me thinking. It was manifest that the two phenomena were closely related, as cause and effect, and a little reflection led me to the conclusion that the electrical energy involved in the precipitation of the water was inconsiderable, the function of the lightening being much like that of a sensitive trigger. Here was a stupendous possibility of achievement. If we could produce electric effects of the required quality, this whole planet and the conditions of existence on it could be transformed. The sun raises the water of the oceans and winds drive it to distant regions where it remains in a state of most delicate balance. If it were in our power to upset it when and wherever desired, this might life sustaining stream could be at will controlled. We could irrigate arid deserts, create lakes and rivers, and provide motive power in unlimited amounts. This would be the most efficient way of harnessing the sun to the uses of man. The consummation depended on our ability to develop electric forces of the order of those in nature. Nikola Tesla


+ 307 It would be calamitous, indeed, if at this time when the art is in its infancy and the vast majority, not excepting even experts, have no conception of its ultimate possibilities, a measure would be rushed through the legislature making it a government monopoly. …universal evidence unmistakably shows that the best results are always obtained in healthful commercial competition. Nikola Tesla


+ 377 While I have not lost faith in its potentialities, my views have changed since. War can not be avoided until the physical cause for its recurrence is removed and this, in the last analysis, is the vast extent of the planet on which we live. Only though annihilation of distance in every respect, as the conveyance of intelligence, transport of passengers and supplies and transmission of energy will conditions be brought about some day, insuring permanency of friendly relations. What we now want most is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth and the elimination of that fanatic devotion to exalted ideals of national egoism and pride, which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife. No league or parliamentary act of any kind will ever prevent such a calamity. These are only new devices for putting the weak at the mercy of the strong. Nikola Tesla


+ 324 At present, many of the ablest minds are trying to devise expedients for preventing a repetition of the awful conflict which is only theoretically ended and the duration and main issues of which I have correctly predicted in an article printed in the Sun of December 20, 1914. The proposed League is not a remedy but, on the contrary, in the opinion of a number of competent men, may bring about results just the opposite. It is particularly regrettable that a punitive policy was adopted in framing the terms of peace, because a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city, at a distance, whatsoever, from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. Nikola Tesla

+ 159 And seven years of famine will arise after them, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine will destroy the land. Bereshit 41:30


+ 153 And the plenty will not be known because of that famine to follow, for it will be very severe. Bereshit 41:31


+ 153 Thus the food will remain as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will be in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not be destroyed by the famine." Bereshit 41:36


+ 158 And to Joseph were born two sons before the year of the famine set in, whom Asenath the daughter of Poti phera, the governor of On, bore to him. Bereshit 41:50


+ 172 And the seven years of famine began, as Joseph had said, and there was famine in all the lands, but throughout the land of Egypt there was bread. Bereshit 41:54


+ 190 Now the famine spread over all the face of the land, and Joseph opened all the storehouses in which there was grain, and he sold it to the Egyptians, and the famine intensified in the land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:56


+ 151 And all the inhabitants of the land came to Egypt to Joseph to purchase, for the famine had intensified in the entire land. Bereshit 41:57


+ 203 But Joseph's brother, Benjamin, Jacob did not send with his brothers, because, he said, Lest misfortune befall him. Bereshit 42:4


+ 168 So the sons of Israel came to purchase among those who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:5


+ 193 And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me-Joseph is gone, and Simeon is gone, and you want to take Benjamin! All these troubles have come upon me. Bereshit 42:36


+ 173 They said, The man asked about us and about our family, saying, Is your father still alive? Do you have a brother? And we told him according to these words. Could we have known that he would say, Bring your brother down? Bereshit 43:7


+ 166 And may the Almighty God grant you compassion before the man, and he will release to you your other brother and Benjamin, and as for me as I am bereaved, I am bereaved. Bereshit 43:14


+ 159 So the men took this gift, and they took double the money in their hands and Benjamin, and they got up and went down to Egypt and stood before Joseph. Bereshit 43:15


+ 165 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the overseer of his house, Bring the men into the house and give orders to slaughter an animal and to prepare, for the men will eat with me at lunch. Bereshit 43:16

+ 126 As directed by the Lord, they were appointed by Moses, each man to his service and his burden; they were counted as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 4:49


+ 105 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 5:1


+ 111 Command the children of Israel to banish from the camp all those afflicted with tzara'ath or with a male discharge, and all those unclean through contact with the dead. Bamidbar 5:2


+ 127 Both male and female you shall banish; you shall send them outside the camp, and they not defile their camps, in which I dwell among them. Bamidbar 5:3


+ 105 The children of Israel did so: they sent them outside the camp; as the Lord had spoken to Moses, so did the children of Israel do. Bamidbar 5:4


+ 100 The Lord then spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 5:5


+ 115 Tell the children of Israel: When a man or woman commits any of the sins against man to act treacherously against God, and that person is found guilty, Bamidbar 5:6


+ 121 They shall confess the sin they committed, and make restitution for the principal amount of his guilt, add its fifth to it, and give it to the one against whom he was guilty. Bamidbar 5:7


+ 114 But if the man has no kinsman to whom to make restitution, the debt which is restored to the Lord, is to be given to the kohen. This is besides the atonement ram through which expiation is made for him. Bamidbar 5:8


+ 98 Every offering of all the children of Israel's holy things which is brought to the kohen, shall be his. Bamidbar 5:9


+ 110 Everyone's holy things shall belong to him; whatever a man gives to the kohen shall be his. Bamidbar 5:10


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 5:11


+ 113 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: Should any man's wife go astray and deal treacherously with him, Bamidbar 5:12


+ 190 And a man lie with her carnally, but it was hidden from her husband's eyes, but she was secluded with the suspected adulterer and there was no witness against her, and she was not seized. Bamidbar 5:13


+ 115 But a spirit of jealousy had come upon him and he became jealous of his wife, and she was defiled, or, a spirit of jealousy had come upon him and he was jealous of his wife, and she was not defiled. Bamidbar 5:14


+ 126 Then the man shall bring his wife to the kohen and bring her offering for her, one tenth of an ephah of barley flour. He shall neither pour oil over it nor put frankincense on it, for it is a meal offering of jealousies, a meal offering of remembrance, recalling iniquity. Bamidbar 5:15


+ 82 The kohen shall bring her forth and present her before the Lord. Bamidbar 5:16


+ 92 The kohen shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and some earth from the Mishkan floor, the kohen shall take and put it into the water. Bamidbar 5:17


+ 103 Then the kohen shall stand the woman up before the Lord and expose the hair on the head of the woman; he shall place into her hands the remembrance meal offering, which is a meal offering of jealousies, while the bitter curse bearing waters are in the kohen's hand. Bamidbar 5:18


+ 129 The kohen shall then place her under oath, and say to the woman, If no man has lain with you and you have not gone astray to become defiled to another in place of your husband, then you will be absolved through these bitter waters which cause the curse. Bamidbar 5:19


+ 114 But as for you, if you have gone astray to another instead of your husband and have become defiled, and another man besides your husband has lain with you... Bamidbar 5:20


+ 126 The kohen shall now adjure the woman with the oath of the curse, and the kohen shall say to the woman, May the Lord make you for a curse and an oath among your people, when the Lord causes your thigh to rupture and your belly to swell. Bamidbar 5:21


+ 92 For these curse bearing waters shall enter your innards, causing the belly to swell and the thigh to rupture, and the woman shall say, "Amen, amen." Bamidbar 5:22


+ 93 Then the kohen shall write these curses on a scroll and erase it in the bitter water. Bamidbar 5:23


+ 91 He shall then give the bitter, curse bearing waters to the woman to drink, and the curse bearing waters shall enter her to become bitter. Bamidbar 5:24


+ 100 The kohen shall take the meal offering of jealousies from the woman's hand, wave the meal offering before the Lord, and bring it to the altar. Bamidbar 5:25


+ 99 The kohen shall scoop out from the meal offering its reminder and burn it upon the altar, and then he shall give the woman the water to drink. Bamidbar 5:26


+ 119 He shall make her drink the water, and it shall be that, if she had been defiled and was unfaithful to her husband, the curse bearing waters shall enter her to become bitter, and her belly will swell, and her thigh will rupture. The woman will be a curse among her people. Bamidbar 5:27


+ 102 But if the woman had not become defiled and she is clean, she shall be exempted and bear seed. Bamidbar 5:28


+ 89 This is the law of jealousies when a woman goes astray to someone other than her husband and is defiled, Bamidbar 5:29


+ 96 Or if a spirit of jealousy comes over a man, and he is jealous of his wife, and he presents the woman before the Lord, and the kohen shall do to her all of this law, Bamidbar 5:30


+ 92 The man shall be absolved of iniquity, and the woman shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 5:31


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:1


+ 107 Speak to the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: A man or woman who sets himself apart by making a nazirite vow to abstain for the sake of the Lord. Bamidbar 6:2


+ 105 He shall abstain from new wine and aged wine; he shall not drink even vinegar made from new wine or aged wine, nor shall he drink anything in which grapes have been steeped, and he shall eat neither fresh grapes nor dried ones. Bamidbar 6:3


+ 96 For the entire duration of his abstinence, he shall not eat any product of the grape vine, from seeds to skins. Bamidbar 6:4


+ 170 All the days of his vow of abstinence, no razor shall pass over his head; until the completion of the term that he abstains for the sake of the Lord, it shall be sacred, and he shall allow the growth of the hair of his head to grow wild. Bamidbar 6:5


+ 97 All the days that he abstains for The Lord, he shall not come into contact with the dead. Bamidbar 6:6


+ 98 To his father, to his mother, to his brother, or to his sister, he shall not defile himself if they die, for the crown of his God is upon his head. Bamidbar 6:7


+ 86 For the entire duration of his abstinence, he is holy to the Lord. Bamidbar 6:8


+ 122 If someone in his presence dies unexpectedly or suddenly, and causes the nazirite head to become defiled, he shall shave off the hair of his head on the day of his purification; on the seventh day, he shall shave it off. Bamidbar 6:9


+ 97 And on the eighth day, he shall bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the kohen, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:10


+ 134 The kohen shall prepare one for a sin offering and one for a burnt offering and atone on his behalf for sinning by coming into contact with the dead, and he shall sanctify his head on that day. Bamidbar 6:11


+ 124 He shall consecrate to the Lord the period of his abstinence and bring a lamb in its first year as a guilt offering; the previous days shall be canceled because his naziriteship has been defiled. Bamidbar 6:12


+ 106 This is the law of the nazirite: On the day his period of naziriteship is completed, he shall present himself at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 6:13


+ 95 He shall bring his offering to the Lord: one unblemished lamb in its first year as a burnt offering, one unblemished ewe lamb in its first year as a sin offering, and one unblemished ram as a peace offering, Bamidbar 6:14


+ 114 And a basket of unleavened cakes; loaves of fine flour mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, with their meal offerings and their libations. Bamidbar 6:15


+ 89 The kohen shall present it before the Lord, and perform the service of his sin offering and his burnt offering. Bamidbar 6:16


+ 104 He shall make the ram as a peace offering to the Lord, along with the basket of unleavened cakes, and the kohen shall perform the service of its meal offering with its libation. Bamidbar 6:17


+ 108 The nazirite shall shave the head of his naziriteship at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and he shall take the hair of the head of his naziriteship and place it upon the fire which is under the peace offering. Bamidbar 6:18


+ 131 The kohen shall then take the cooked foreleg of the ram, one unleavened loaf from the basket and one unleavened wafer, place them in the hands of the nazirite after he has shaven off his nazirite head. Bamidbar 6:19


+ 105 The kohen shall wave them as a waving before the Lord; it is consecrated to the kohen, along with the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting. After this, the nazirite may drink wine. Bamidbar 6:20


+ 116 This is the law of a nazirite who makes a vow: his offering to the Lord for his naziriteship is in addition to what is within his means. According to the vow that he vows, so shall he do, in addition to the law of his naziriteship. Bamidbar 6:21


+ 108 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 6:22


+ 93 Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel, saying to them: Bamidbar 6:23


+ 99 May the Lord bless you and watch over you. Bamidbar 6:24


+ 92 May the Lord cause His countenance to shine to you and favor you. Bamidbar 6:25


+ 81 May the Lord raise His countenance toward you and grant you peace. Bamidbar 6:26


+ 95 They shall bestow My Name upon the children of Israel, so that I will bless them. Bamidbar 6:27


+ 130 And it was that on the day that Moses finished erecting the Mishkan, he anointed it, sanctified it, and all its vessels, and the altar and all its vessels, and he anointed them and sanctified them. Bamidbar 7:1

+ 97 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 8:1


+ 107 Speak to Aaron and say to him: "When you light the lamps, the seven lamps shall cast their light toward the face of the menorah." Bamidbar 8:2


+ 110 Aaron did so; he lit the lamps toward the face of the menorah, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 8:3


+ 126 This was the form of the menorah: hammered work of gold, from its base to its flower it was hammered work; according to the form that the Lord had shown Moses, so did he construct the menorah. Bamidbar 8:4


+ 109 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 8:5


+ 93 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel and cleanse them. Bamidbar 8:6


+ 119 This is what you shall do to them so as to cleanse them: sprinkle them with cleansing water and pass a razor over all their flesh; then they shall wash their garments and cleanse themselves. Bamidbar 8:7


+ 96 Then they shall take a young bull with its meal offering of fine flour mingled with oil. And you shall take a second young bull as a sin offering. Bamidbar 8:8


+ 92 You shall bring the Levites in front of the Tent of Meeting, and you shall gather the entire congregation of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 8:9


+ 82 You shall bring the Levites before the Lord, and the children of Israel shall lay their hands upon the Levites. Bamidbar 8:10


+ 123 Then Aaron shall lift up the Levites as a waving before the Lord on behalf of the children of Israel, that they may serve in the Lord's service. Bamidbar 8:11


+ 113 The Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and make one as a sin offering and one as a burnt offering to the Lord, to atone for the Levites. Bamidbar 8:12


+ 83 You shall present the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and lift them as a waving before the Lord. Bamidbar 8:13


+ 97 Thus shall you set apart the Levites from the midst of the children of Israel, and the Levites shall become Mine. Bamidbar 8:14


+ 97 Following this, the Levites shall come to serve in the Tent of Meeting. You shall cleanse them and lift them as a waving. Bamidbar 8:15


+ 140 For they are wholly given over to Me from among the children of Israel; instead of those that open the womb all the firstborn of Israel I have taken them for Myself. Bamidbar 8:16


+ 114 For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are Mine whether man or beast since the day I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt; I have sanctified them for Myself. Bamidbar 8:17


+ 92 And I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 8:18


+ 121 I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the children of Israel, to perform the service for the children of Israel in the Tent of Meeting and to atone on behalf of the children of Israel, so that the children of Israel will not be inflicted with plague when they approach the Sanctuary. Bamidbar 8:19


+ 110 So Moses, Aaron, and the entire congregation of Israel did this to the Levites; the children of Israel did in accordance with all that the Lord had instructed Moses regarding the Levites. Bamidbar 8:20


+ 98 The Levites cleansed themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron lifted them as a waving before the Lord, and Aaron atoned for them to cleanse them. Bamidbar 8:21


+ 97 After that, the Levites came to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting before Aaron and before his sons; they did to them just as the Lord had commanded Moses regarding the Levites. Bamidbar 8:22


+ 89 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 8:23


+ 124 This is the rule concerning the Levites: From the age of twenty five years and upwards, he shall enter the service to work in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 8:24


+ 87 From the age of fifty he shall retire from the work legion, and do no more work. Bamidbar 8:25


+ 107 He shall minister with his brethren in the Tent of Meeting to keep the charge, but he shall not perform the service; thus shall you do for the Levites regarding their charge. Bamidbar 8:26


+ 91 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai Desert, in the second year of their exodus from the land of Egypt, in the first month, saying: Bamidbar 9:1


+ 114 The children of Israel shall make the Passover sacrifice in its appointed time. Bamidbar 9:2


+ 123 On the afternoon of the fourteenth of this month, you shall make it in its appointed time; in accordance with all its statutes and all its ordinances you shall make it. Bamidbar 9:3


+ 99 Moses spoke to the children of Israel instructing them to make the Passover sacrifice. Bamidbar 9:4


+ 144 So they made the Passover sacrifice in the first month, on the afternoon fourteenth day of the month in the Sinai Desert; according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel do. Bamidbar 9:5


+ 128 There were men who were ritually unclean [because of contact with] a dead person, and therefore could not make the Passover sacrifice on that day. So they approached Moses and Aaron on that day. Bamidbar 9:6


+ 129 Those men said to him, "We are ritually unclean because of contact with a dead person; but why should we be excluded so as not to bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed time, with all the children of Israel? Bamidbar 9:7


+ 115 Moses said to them, "Wait, and I will hear what the Lord instructs concerning you." Bamidbar 9:8


+ 100 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 9:9


+ 116 Speak to the children of Israel saying, Any person who becomes unclean from contact with the dead, or is on a distant journey, whether among you or in future generations, he shall make a Passover sacrifice for the Lord. Bamidbar 9:10


+ 99 In the second month, on the fourteenth day, in the afternoon, they shall make it; they shall eat it with unleavened cakes and bitter herbs. Bamidbar 9:11


+ 118 They shall not leave over anything from it until the next morning, and they shall not break any of its bones. They shall make it in accordance with all the statutes connected with the Passover sacrifice. Bamidbar 9:12


+ 130 But the man who was ritually clean and was not on a journey, yet refrained from making the Passover sacrifice, his soul shall be cut off from his people, for he did not bring the offering of the Lord in its appointed time; that person shall bear his sin. Bamidbar 9:13


+ 141 If a proselyte dwells with you, and he makes a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, according to the statutes of the Passover sacrifice and its ordinances he shall make it. One statute shall apply to you, to the proselyte and to the native-born citizen. Bamidbar 9:14


+ 137 On the day the Mishkan was erected, the cloud covered the Mishkan, which was a tent for the Testimony, and at evening, there was over the Mishkan like an appearance of fire, which remained until morning. Bamidbar 9:15


+ 93 So it was always, the cloud covered it and there was an appearance of fire at night. Bamidbar 9:16


+ 130 And according to the cloud's departure from over the Tent, and afterwards, the children of Israel would travel, and in the place where the cloud settled, there the children of Israel would encamp. Bamidbar 9:17


+ 122 At the bidding of the Lord, the children of Israel traveled, and at the bidding of the Lord, they encamped. As long as the cloud hovered above the Mishkan, they encamped. Bamidbar 9:18


+ 87 When the cloud lingered over the Mishkan for many days, the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord and did not travel. Bamidbar 9:19


+ 106 Sometimes, the cloud remained for several days above the Mishkan; at the Lord's bidding they traveled and at the Lord's bidding they encamped. Bamidbar 9:20


+ 97 Sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning, and when the cloud departed in the morning, they traveled. Or, the cloud remained for a day and a night, and when the cloud departed, they traveled. Bamidbar 9:21


+ 108 Whether it was for two days, a month or a year, that the cloud lingered to hover over the Mishkan, the children of Israel would encamp and not travel, and when it departed, they traveled. Bamidbar 9:22


+ 92 At the Lord's bidding they would encamp, and at the Lord's bidding they would travel; they kept the charge of the Lord by the word of the Lord through Moses. Bamidbar 9:23


+ 98 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 10:1


+ 120 Make yourself two silver trumpets; you shall make them from a beaten form; they shall be used by you to summon the congregation and to announce the departure of the camps. Bamidbar 10:2


+ 98 When they blow on them, the entire congregation shall assemble to you, at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 10:3


+ 93 If they blow one of them, the princes, the leaders of Israel's thousands, shall convene to you. Bamidbar 10:4


+ 117 When you blow a teruah [a series of short blasts, the camps which are encamped to the east shall travel. Bamidbar 10:5


+ 104 When you blow a second teruah, the camps encamped to the south shall travel; they shall blow a teruah for traveling. Bamidbar 10:6


+ 104 But when assembling the congregation, you shall blow a tekiah [long blast] but not a teruah. Bamidbar 10:7


+ 89 The descendants of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets; this shall be an eternal statute for your generations. Bamidbar 10:8


+ 111 If you go to war in your land against an adversary that oppresses you, you shall blow a teruah with the trumpets and be remembered before the Lord your God, and thus be saved from your enemies. Bamidbar 10:9


+ 111 On the days of your rejoicing, on your festivals and on your new-moon celebrations, you shall blow on the trumpets for your ascent-offerings and your peace sacrifices, and it shall be a remembrance before your God; I am the Lord your God. Bamidbar 10:10


+ 105 On the twentieth of the second month in the second year, the cloud rose up from over the Tabernacle of the Testimony. Bamidbar 10:11


+ 97 The children of Israel traveled on their journeys from the Sinai desert, and the cloud settled in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 10:12


+ 84 This was the first journey at God's bidding through Moses. Bamidbar 10:13


+ 100 The banner of the camp of Judah's children traveled first according to their legions. Heading the legion was Nahshon the son of Amminadab. Bamidbar 10:14


+ 96 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Issachar was Nethanel the son of Zuar. Bamidbar 10:15


+ 96 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Zebulun was Eliab the son of Helon. Bamidbar 10:16


+ 105 The Tabernacle was dismantled, and the sons of Gershon set out, [together] with the sons of Merari who carried the Tabernacle. Bamidbar 10:17


+ 102 Then the banner of the camp of Reuben set out according to their legions. Heading its legion was Elitzur the son of Shdeur. Bamidbar 10:18


+ 111 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Simeon was Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. Bamidbar 10:19


+ 93 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Gad was Eliasaph the son of Reuel. Bamidbar 10:20


+ 83 The Kohathithes, who carried the holy equipment set out, and they had erected the Tabernacle before they had arrived. Bamidbar 10:21


+ 95 Then the banner of the camp of Ephraim set out, according to its legions. Heading its legion was Elishama the son of Amihud. Bamidbar 10:22


+ 89 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Menasseh was Gamliel the son of Pedahzur. Bamidbar 10:23


+ 95 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Benjamin was Abidan the son of Gidoni. Bamidbar 10:24


+ 93 Then the banner of the camp of Dan set out, the collector for all the other camps, according to its legions. Heading its legion was Achiezer the son of Amishaddai. Bamidbar 10:25


+ 99 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Asher was Pagiel the son of Ocran. Bamidbar 10:26


+ 78 Heading the legion of the tribe of the children of Naphtali was Ahira the son of Enon. Bamidbar 10:27


+ 97 These are the travels of the children of Israel according to their legions, and then they traveled. Bamidbar 10:28


+ 125 Then Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses's father-in-law, We are traveling to the place about which the Lord said, I will give it to you. Come with us and we will be good to you, for the Lord has spoken of good fortune for Israel. Bamidbar 10:29


+ 100 He said to him, I won't go, for I will go to my land and my birthplace. Bamidbar 10:30


+ 119 He said, Please don't leave us, for because you are familiar with our encampments in the desert and you will be our guide. Bamidbar 10:31


+ 86 And if you go with us, then we will bestow on you the good which God grants us. Bamidbar 10:32


+ 92 They traveled a distance of three days from the mountain of the Lord, and the Ark of the Lord's covenant traveled three days ahead of them to seek for them a place to settle. Bamidbar 10:33


+ 86 The cloud of the Lord was above them by day, when they traveled from the camp. Bamidbar 10:34


+ 120 So it was, whenever the ark set out, Moses would say, Arise, O Lord, may Your enemies be scattered and may those who hate You flee from You. Bamidbar 10:35


+ 88 And when it came to rest he would say, Repose O Lord, among the myriads of thousands of Israel. Bamidbar 10:36


+ 116 The people were looking to complain, and it was evil in the ears of the Lord. The Lord heard and His anger flared, and a fire from the Lord burned among them, consuming the extremes of the camp. Bamidbar 11:1


+ 102 The people cried out to Moses; Moses prayed to the Lord, and the fire died down. Bamidbar 11:2


+ 103 He named that place Tab'erah, for the fire of the Lord had burned among them there. Bamidbar 11:3


+ 130 But the multitude among them began to have strong cravings. Then even the children of Israel once again began to cry, and they said, "Who will feed us meat? Bamidbar 11:4


+ 123 We remember the fish that we ate in Egypt free of charge, the cucumbers, the watermelons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. Bamidbar 11:5


+ 113 But now, our bodies are dried out, for there is nothing at all; we have nothing but manna to look at. Bamidbar 11:6


+ 93 Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its appearance was like the appearance of crystal. Bamidbar 11:7


+ 139 The people walked about and gathered it. Then they ground it in a mill or crushed it in a mortar, cooked it in a pot and made it into cakes. It had a taste like the taste of oil cake. Bamidbar 11:8


+ 82 When the dew descended on the camp at night, the manna would descend upon it. Bamidbar 11:9


+ 115 Moses heard the people weeping with their families,each one at the entrance to his tent. The Lord became very angry, and Moses considered it evil. Bamidbar 11:10


+ 120 Moses said to the Lord, "Why have You treated Your servant so badly? Why have I not found favor in Your eyes that You place the burden of this entire people upon me? Bamidbar 11:11


+ 110 Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that You say to me, Carry them in your bosom as the nurse carries the suckling, to the Land You promised their forefathers? Bamidbar 11:12


+ 86 Where can I get meat to give all these people? For they are crying on me, saying, Give us meat to eat. Bamidbar 11:12


+ 93 Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me. Bamidbar 11:13


+ 89 Alone I cannot carry this entire people for it is too hard for me. Bamidbar 11:14


+ 127 If this is the way You treat me, please kill me if I have found favor in Your eyes, so that I not see my misfortune. Bamidbar 11:15


+ 125 Then the Lord said to Moses, Assemble for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the people's elders and officers, and you shall take them to the Tent of Meeting, and they shall stand there with You. Bamidbar 11:16


+ 96 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will increase the spirit that is upon you and bestow it upon them. Then they will bear the burden of the people with you so that you need not bear it alone. Bamidbar 11:17


+ 112 And to the people, you shall say, Prepare yourselves for tomorrow and you shall eat meat, because you have cried in the ears of the Lord saying, Who will feed us meat, for we had it better in Egypt. Therefore, the Lord will give you meat, and you shall eat. Bamidbar 11:18


+ 103 You shall eat it not one day, not two days, not five days, not ten days, and not twenty days. Bamidbar 11:19


+ 142 But even for a full month until it comes out your nose and nauseates you. Because you have despised the Lord Who is among you, and you cried before Him, saying, Why did we ever leave Egypt? Bamidbar 11:20


+ 107 Moses said, Six hundred thousand people on foot are the people in whose midst I am, and You say, I will give them meat, and they will eat it for a full month? Bamidbar 11:21


+ 101 If sheep and cattle were slaughtered for them, would it suffice for them? If all the fish of the sea were gathered for them, would it suffice for them? Bamidbar 11:22


+ 113 Then the Lord said to Moses, Is My power limited? Now you will see if My word comes true for you or not! Bamidbar 11:23


+ 100 Moses went out and told the people what the Lord had said, and he assembled seventy men of the elders of the people, and stood them around the Tent. Bamidbar 11:24


+ 134 The Lord descended in a cloud and spoke to him, and He increased some of the spirit that was on him and bestowed it on the seventy elders. And when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, but they did not continue. Bamidbar 11:25


+ 124 Now two men remained in the camp; the name of one was Eldad and the name of the second was Medad, and the spirit rested upon them. They were among those written, but they did not go out to the tent, but prophesied in the camp. Bamidbar 11:26


+ 112 The lad ran and told Moses, saying, Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp! Bamidbar 11:27


+ 116 Joshua the son of Nun, Moses servant from his youth, answered and said, Moses, my master, imprison them! Bamidbar 11:28


+ 113 Moses said to him, Are you zealous for my sake? If only all the Lord's people were prophets, that the Lord would bestow His spirit upon them! Bamidbar 11:29


+ 103 Then Moses entered the camp; he and the elders of Israel. Bamidbar 11:30


+ 124 A wind went forth from the Lord and swept quails from the sea and spread them over the camp about one day's journey this way and one day's journey that way, around the camp, about two cubits above the ground. Bamidbar 11:31


+ 103 The people rose up all that day and all night and the next day and gathered the quails. Even the one who gathered the least collected ten heaps. They spread them around the camp in piles. Bamidbar 11:32


+ 115 The meat was still between their teeth; it was not yet finished, and the anger of the Lord flared against the people, and the Lord struck the people with a very mighty blow. Bamidbar 11:33


+ 105 He named that place Kivroth Hata'avah Graves of Craving, for there they buried the people who craved. Bamidbar 11:34


+ 103 From Kivroth Hata'avah the people traveled to Hazeroth, and they stayed in Hazeroth. Bamidbar 11:35


+ 89 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses regarding the Cushite woman he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman. Bamidbar 12:1


+ 93 They said, Has the Lord spoken only to Moses? Hasn't He spoken to us too? And the Lord heard. Bamidbar 12:2


+ 95 Now this man Moses was exceedingly humble, more so than any person on the face of the earth. Bamidbar 12:3


+ 92 The Lord suddenly said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, Go out, all three of you, to the Tent of Meeting! And all three went out. Bamidbar 12:4


+ 106 The Lord descended in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the Tent. He called to Aaron and Miriam, and they both went out. Bamidbar 12:5


+ 108 He said, "Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream. Bamidbar 12:6


+ 101 Not so is My servant Moses; he is faithful throughout My house. Bamidbar 12:7


+ 113 With him I speak mouth to mouth; in a vision and not in riddles, and he beholds the image of the Lord. So why were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses ? Bamidbar 12:8


+ 82 The wrath of the Lord flared against them and He left. Bamidbar 12:9


+ 110 The cloud departed from above the Tent, and behold, Miriam was afflicted with tzara'ath, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned to Miriam and behold, she was afflicted with tzara'ath. Bamidbar 12:10


+ 110 Aaron said to Moses, Please, master, do not put sin upon us for acting foolishly and for sinning. Bamidbar 12:11


+ 90 Let her not be like the dead, which comes out of his mother's womb with half his flesh consumed! Bamidbar 12:12


+ 103 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, I beseech you, God, please heal her. Bamidbar 12:14


+ 131 The Lord replied to Moses, If her father were to spit in her face, would she not be humiliated for seven days? She shall be confined for seven days outside the camp, and afterwards she may enter. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 95 So Miriam was confined outside the camp for seven days, and the people did not travel until Miriam had entered. Bamidbar 12:15


+ 93 Then the people departed from Hazeroth, and they camped in the desert of Paran. Bamidbar 12:16


+ 91 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 13:1


+ 108 Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel. You shall send one man each for his father's tribe; each one shall be a chieftain in their midst. Bamidbar 13:2


+ 113 So Moses sent them from the desert of Paran by the word of the Lord. All of them were men of distinction; they were the heads of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 13:3


+ 84 These are their names: For the tribe of Reuben, Shammua the son of Zakkur. Bamidbar 13:4


+ 90 For the tribe of Simeon, Shaphat the son of Hori. Bamidbar 13:5


+ 81 For the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jepphunneh. Bamidbar 13:6


+ 86 For the tribe of Issachar, Yigal the son of Joseph. Bamidbar 13:7


+ 91 For the tribe of Ephraim, Hoshea the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:8


+ 91 For the tribe of Benjamin, Palti the son of Raphu. Bamidbar 13:9


+ 81 For the tribe of Zebulun, Gaddiel the son of Sodi. Bamidbar 13:10


+ 91 For the tribe of Joseph, the tribe of Manasseh, Gaddi the son of Susi. Bamidbar 13:11


+ 108 For the tribe of Dan, Ammiel the son of Gemalli. Bamidbar 13:12


+ 84 For the tribe of Asher, Sethur the son of Michael. Bamidbar 13:13


+ 74 For the tribe of Naphtali, Nahbi the son of Vophsi. Bamidbar 13:14


+ 90 For the tribe of Gad, Geuel the son of Machi. Bamidbar 13:15


+ 112 These are the names of the men Moses sent to scout the Land, and Moses called Hoshea the son of Nun, Joshua. Bamidbar 13:16


+ 129 Moses sent them to scout the Land of Canaan, and he said to them, Go up this way in the south and climb up the mountain. Bamidbar 13:17


+ 119 You shall see what kind of land it is, and the people who inhabit it; are they strong or weak? Are there few or many? Bamidbar 13:18


+ 99 And what of the land they inhabit? Is it good or bad? And what of the cities in which they reside are they in camps or in fortresses? Bamidbar 13:19


+ 113 What is the soil like is it fat or lean? Are there any trees in it or not? You shall be courageous and take from the fruit of the land." It was the season when the first grapes begin to ripen. Bamidbar 13:20


+ 78 So they went up and explored the land, from the desert of Zin until Rehov, at the entrance to Hamath. Bamidbar 13:21


+ 96 They went up in, the south, and he came to Hebron, and there were Ahiman, Sheshai, and Talmai, the descendants of the giant. Now Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan of Egypt. Bamidbar 13:22


+ 117 They came to the Valley of Eshkol and they cut a branch with a cluster of grapes. They carried it on a pole between two [people] and [they also took] some pomegranates and figs. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 103 They called that place the Valley of Eshkol because of the cluster [eshkol] the children of Israel cut from there. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 87 They returned from scouting the Land at the end of forty days. Bamidbar 13:25


+ 127 They went, and they came to Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel in the desert of Paran, to Kadesh. They brought them back a report, as well as to the entire congregation, and they showed them the fruit of the land. Bamidbar 13:26


+ 102 They told him and said, "We came to the land to which you sent us, and it is flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 109 However, the people who inhabit the land are mighty, and the cities are extremely huge and fortified, and there we saw even the offspring of the giant. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 126 The Amalekites dwell in the south land, while the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountainous region. The Canaanites dwell on the coast and alongside the Jordan." Bamidbar 13:29


+ 125 Caleb silenced the people to [hear about] Moses, and he said, "We can surely go up and take possession of it, for we can indeed overcome it." Bamidbar 13:30


+ 93 But the men who went up with him said, "We are unable to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we. Bamidbar 13:31


+ 119 They spread an evil report about the land which they had scouted, telling the children of Israel, The land we passed through to explore is a land that consumes its inhabitants, and all the people we saw in it are men of stature. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 110 There we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, descended from the giants. In our eyes, we seemed like grasshoppers, and so we were in their eyes. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 89 The entire community raised their voices and shouted, and the people wept on that night. Bamidbar 14:1


+ 127 All the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the entire congregation said, "If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this desert. Bamidbar 14:2


+ 132 Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword; our wives and children will be as spoils. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt? Bamidbar 14:3


+ 80 They said to each other, Let us appoint a leader and return to Egypt! Bamidbar 14:4


+ 98 Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before the entire congregation of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:5


+ 97 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had scouted the land, tore their clothes. Bamidbar 14:6


+ 108 They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land. Bamidbar 14:7


+ 98 If the Lord desires us, He will bring us to this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey. Bamidbar 14:8


+ 99 But you shall not rebel against the Lord, and you will not fear the people of that land for they are as our bread. Their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them. Bamidbar 14:9


+ 104 The entire congregation threatened to pelt them with stones, but the glory of the Lord appeared in the Tent of Meeting to all the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:10


+ 100 The Lord said to Moses, How long will this people provoke Me? How much longer will they not believe in Me after all the signs I have performed in their midst? Bamidbar 14:11


+ 94 I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them; then I will make you into a nation, greater and stronger than they. Bamidbar 14:12


+ 116 Moses said to the Lord, But the Egyptians will hear that You have brought this nation out from its midst with great power. Bamidbar 14:13


+ 121 They will say about the inhabitants of this land, who have heard that You, O Lord, are in the midst of this people; that You, the Lord, appear to them eye to eye and that Your cloud rests over them. And You go before them with a pillar of cloud by day and with a pillar of fire by night, Bamidbar 14:14


+ 90 And if You kill this nation like one man, the nations who have heard of Your reputation will say as follows: Bamidbar 14:15


+ 72 Since the Lord lacked the ability to bring this nation to the Land which He swore to them, He slaughtered them in the desert. Bamibdar 14:16


+ 98 Now, please, let the strength of the Lord be increased, as You spoke, saying. Bamidbar 14:17


+ 120 'The Lord is slow to anger and abundantly kind, forgiving iniquity and transgression, Who cleanses some and does not cleanse [others], Who visits the iniquities of parents on children, even to the third and fourth generations.' Bamidbar 14:18


+ 113 Please forgive the iniquity of this nation in accordance with your abounding kindness, as You have borne this people from Egypt until now." Bamidbar 14:19


+ 104 And the Lord said, I have forgiven them in accordance with your word. Bamidbar 14:21


+ 85 However, as surely as I live, and as the glory of the Lord fills the earth... Bamidbar 14:22


+ 110 That all the people who perceived My glory, and the signs that I performed in Egypt and in the desert, yet they have tested me these ten times and not listened to My voice, Bamidbar 13:22


+ 87 If they will see the Land that I swore to their fathers, and all who provoked Me will not see it. Bamidbar 13:23


+ 120 But as for My servant Caleb, since he was possessed by another spirit, and he followed Me, I will bring him to the land to which he came, and his descendants will drive its inhabitants out. Bamidbar 13:24


+ 92 The Amalekites and the Canaanites dwell in the valley. Tomorrow, turn back and journey into the desert toward the Red Sea." Bamidbar 13:25


+ 92 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Bamidbar 13:26


+ 129 How much longer will this evil congregation who are causing to complain against Me exist? The complaints of the children of Israel which they caused them to complain against Me, I have heard. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 106 Say to them, As I live, says the Lord, if not as you have spoken in My ears, so will I do to you. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 112 In this desert, your corpses shall fall; your entire number, all those from the age of twenty and up, who were counted, because you complained against Me. Bamidbar 13:29


+ 103 You shall not come into the Land concerning which I raised My hand that you would settle in it, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:30


+ 94 As for your infants, of whom you said that they will be as spoils, I will bring them there, and they will come to know the Land which You despised. Bamidbar 13:31


+ 85 But as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 113 Your children shall wander in the desert for forty years and bear your defection until the last of your corpses has fallen in the desert. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 120 According to the number of days which you toured the Land forty days, a day for each year, you will thus bear your iniquities for forty years; thus you will come to know My alienation. Bamidbar 13:34


+ 98 I, the Lord, have spoken if I will not do this to the entire evil congregation who have assembled against me; in this desert they will end, and there they will die. Bamidbar 13:35


+ 126 As for the men whom Moses had sent to scout the Land, who returned and caused the entire congregation to complain against him by spreading report about the Land. Bamidbar 14:36


+ 82 The men who spread an evil report about the Land died in the plague, before the Lord. Bamidbar 14:37


+ 102 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive of the men who went to tour the Land. Bamidbar 14:38


+ 121 Moses related all these words to the children of Israel, and the people mourned greatly. Bamidbar 14:39


+ 107 They arose early in the morning and ascended to the mountain top, saying, We are ready to go up to the place of which the Lord spoke, for we have sinned. Bamidbar 14:40


+ 110 Moses said, Why do you transgress the word of the Lord? It will not succeed. Bamidbar 14:41


+ 91 Do not go up, for the Lord is not among you, so that you will not be beaten by your enemies. Bamidbar 14:42


+ 104 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you will fall by the sword. For you have turned away from the Lord, and the Lord will not be with you. Bamidbar 14:43


+ 99 They defiantly ascended to the mountain top, but the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord and Moses did not move from the camp. Bamidbar 14:44


+ 99 The Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived on the mountain came down and smote them and crushed them until Hormah. Bamidbar 14:45


+ 84 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 15:1


+ 90 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you arrive in the Land of your dwelling place, which I am giving you, Bamidbar 15:2


+ 130 And you make a fire offering to the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice namely a peace offering, for an expressed vow or for a voluntary offering or on your festivals, to provide a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, from the cattle or from the sheep. Bamidbar 15:3


+ 91 The one who brings his offering to the Lord shall present a meal offering containing one tenth fine flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:4


+ 92 And a quarter of a hin of wine for a libation, you shall prepare with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. Bamidbar 15:5


+ 94 Or for a ram, you shall present a meal offering containing two tenths fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:6


+ 88 And a third of a hin of wine for a libation; you shall offer up, a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:7


+ 86 If you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice by expressing a vow, or for a peace offering for the Lord, Bamidbar 15:8


+ 88 With the young bull he shall offer up a meal offering consisting of three tenths fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:9


+ 83 And you shall offer half a hin of wine for a libation, a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:10


+ 78 So shall it be done for each ox or ram, or for a young sheep or young goat. Bamidbar 15:11


+ 87 In accordance with the number you offer up, so shall you present for each one, according to their numbers. Bamidbar 15:12


+ 84 Every native born shall do it in this manner, to offer up a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:13


+ 90 If a proselyte resides with you, or those among you in future generations, and he offers up a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord, as you make it, so shall he make it. Bamidbar 15:15


+ 90 One rule applies to the assembly, for yourselves and for the proselyte who resides with you; one rule applies throughout your generations just as it is for you, so it is for the proselyte, before the Lord. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 85 There shall be one law and one ordinance for you and the proselyte who resides with you. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 15:17


+ 84 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them, When you arrive in the Land to which I am bringing you, Bamidbar 15:18


+ 90 And you eat from the bread of the Land, you shall set aside a gift for the Lord. Bamidbar 15:19


+ 80 The first portion of your dough, you shall separate a loaf for a gift; as in the case of the gift of the threshing floor, so shall you separate it. Bamidbar 15:20


+ 89 From the first portion of your dough you shall give a gift to the Lord in all your generations. Bamidbar 15:21


+ 94 And if you should err and not fulfill all these commandments, which the Lord spoke to Moses. Bamidbar 15:22


+ 70 All that the Lord commanded you through Moses, from the day on which the Lord commanded and from then on, for all generations. Bamidbar 15:23


+ 98 If because of the eyes of the congregation it was committed inadvertently, the entire congregation shall prepare a young bull as a burnt offering for a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, with its prescribed meal offering and libation, and one young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:24


+ 77 The kohen shall atone on behalf of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was an error, and they have brought their offering as a fire offering to the Lord and their sin offering before the Lord because of their error. Bamidbar 15:25


+ 101 The entire congregation of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides with them shall be forgiven, for all the people were in error. Bamidbar 15:26


+ 73 But if an individual sins inadvertently, he shall offer up a she goat in its first year as a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:27


+ 75 And the kohen shall atone for the erring soul which sinned inadvertently before the Lord, so as to atone on his behalf, and it shall be forgiven him. Bamidbar 15:28


+ 99 One law shall apply to anyone who sins inadvertently from the native born of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides among them. Bamidbar 15:29


+ 103 But if a person should act highhandedly, whether he is a native born or a proselyte, he is blaspheming the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from among its people. Bamidbar 15:30


+ 100 For he has scorned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment; that soul shall be utterly cut off for its iniquity is upon it. Bamidbar 15:31


+ 83 Those who found him gathering wood presented him before Moses and Aaron and before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 15:33


+ 86 They put him under guard, since it was not specified what was to be done to him. Bamidbar 15:34


+ 105 The Lord said to Moses, The man shall be put to death; the entire congregation shall pelt him with stones outside the camp. Bamidbar 15:35


+ 113 So the entire congregation took him outside the camp, and they pelted him to death with stones, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 15:36


+ 77 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 15:37


+ 89 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue wool on the fringe of each corner. Bamidbar 15:38


+ 92 This shall be fringes for you, and when you see it, you will remember all the commandments of the Lord to perform them, and you shall not wander after your hearts and after your eyes after which you are going astray. Bamidbar 15:39


+ 79 So that you shall remember and perform all My commandments and you shall be holy to your God. Bamidbar 15:40


+ 73 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord, your God. Bamidbar 15:41


+ 91 Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi took himself to one side along with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, descendants of Reuben. Bamidbar 16:1


+ 108 They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. Bamidbar 16:2


+ 95 They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord's assembly?" Bamidbar 16:3


+ 82 Moses heard and fell on his face. Bamidbar 16:4


+ 81 He spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, "In the morning, the Lord will make known who is His, and who is holy, and He will draw them near to Him, and the one He chooses, He will draw near to Him. Bamidbar 16:5


+ 80 Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. Bamidbar 16:6


+ 96 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7


+ 78 Moses said to Korah, "Please listen, sons of Levi. Bamidbar 16:8


+ 88 Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? Bamidbar 16:9


+ 92 He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? Bamidbar 16:10


+ 107 Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?" Bamidbar 16:11


+ 97 Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, "We will not go up. Bamidbar 16:12


+ 96 Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? Bamidbar 16:13


+ 99 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 103 Moses was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the Lord, "Do not accept their offering. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them." Bamidbar 16:15


+ 77 Moses said to Korah, You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. Bamidbar 16:16


+ 78 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17


+ 94 So each man took his censer, and they put fire upon it and placed incense upon it, and they stood at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 16:18


+ 76 Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord appeared before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 16:19


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, Bamidbar 16:21


+ 89 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 99 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 91 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 16:23


+ 93 Speak to the congregation saying, Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram. Bamidbar 16:24


+ 90 Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. Bamidbar 16:25


+ 95 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 100 So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. Bamidbar 16:27


+ 88 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 78 If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. Bamidbar 16:29


+ 102 But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord. Bamidbar 16:30


+ 79 As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. Bamidbar 16:31


+ 97 The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. Bamidbar 16:32


+ 78 They, and all they possessed, descended alive into the grave; the earth covered them up, and they were lost to the assembly. Bamidbar 16:33


+ 82 All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, "Lest the earth swallow us up too!" Bamidbar 16:34


+ 76 A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. Bamidbar 16:35


+ 82 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:1


+ 96 Say to Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen that he should pick up the censers from the burned area but throw the fire away, because they have become sanctified, Bamidbar 17:2


+ 97 The censers of these who sinned at the cost of their lives, and they shall make them into flattened out plates as an overlay for the altar, for they brought them before the Lord, and have therefore become sanctified, and they shall be as a reminder for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 17:3


+ 98 So Eleazar the kohen took the copper censers which the fire victims had brought, and they hammered them out as an overlay for the altar, Bamidbar 17:4


+ 114 As a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses. Bamidbar 17:5


+ 93 The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, "You have killed the people of the Lord." Bamidbar 17:6


+ 94 It came to pass while the congregation were assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned to the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared. Bamidbar 17:7


+ 92 Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 17:8


+ 85 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:9


+ 95 Stand aside from this congregation, and I shall consume them in an instant. They fell on their faces. Bamidbar 17:10


+ 111 Moses said to Aaron, "Take the censer and put fire from the altar top into it and put incense. Then take it quickly to the congregation and atone for them, for wrath has gone forth from the Lord, and the plague has begun." Bamidbar 17:11


+ 106 Aaron took it, just as Moses had said, and he ran into the midst of the assembly, and behold, the plague had begun among the people. He placed the incense on it and atoned for the people. Bamidbar 17:12


+ 76 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague ceased. Bamidbar 17:13


+ 91 The number of dead in the plague was fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides those who died because of the matter of Korah. Bamidbar 17:14


+ 84 Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and the plague was checked. Bamidbar 17:15


+ 75 The Lord said to Moses saying: Bamidbar 17:16


+ 107 Speak to the children of Israel and take from them a staff for each father's house from all the chieftains according to their father's houses; a total of twelve staffs, and inscribe each man's name on his staff. Bamidbar 17:17


+ 90 Inscribe Aaron's name on the staff of Levi, for there is only one staff for the head of their fathers' house. Bamidbar 17:18


+ 84 You shall place the staffs in the Tent of Meeting before the Ark of the Testimony where I commune with you. Bamidbar 17:19


+ 87 The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down turning away from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. Bamidbar 17:20


+ 114 Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and all their chieftains gave him a staff for each chieftain according to their fathers' houses, a total of twelve staffs, and Aaron's staff was amidst their staffs. Bamidbar 17:21


+ 71 Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the Tent of the Testimony. Bamidbar 17:22


+ 131 And on the following day Moses came to the Tent of Testimony, and behold, Aaron's staff for the house of Levi had blossomed! It gave forth blossoms, sprouted buds, and produced ripe almonds. Bamidbar 17:23


+ 91 Moses took out all the staffs from before the Lord, to the children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. Bamidbar 17:24


+ 97 The Lord said to Moses: Put Aaron's staff back in front of the Testimony as a keepsake and a sign for rebellious ones. Then their complaints against Me will end and they will not die. Bamidbar 17:25


+ 73 Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. Bamidbar 17:26


+ 89 The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! Bamidbar 17:27


+ 84 Whoever comes the closest to the Mishkan of the Lord dies! Have we been consigned to die? Bamidbar 17:28


+ 93 The Lord said to Aaron: You, your sons and your father's house shall bear the iniquity associated with the Sanctuary, and you and your sons with you shall bear the iniquity associated with your kehunah. Bamidbar 18:1


+ 70 Also your brethren, the tribe of Levi, your father's tribe, draw close to you, and they shall join you and minister to you, and you and your sons with you, before the Tent of Testimony. Bamidbar 18:2


+ 88 They shall keep your charge and the charge of the Tent, and they shall not approach the holy vessels or the altar, so that neither they nor you will die. Bamidbar 18:3


+ 87 They shall join you, and they shall keep the charge of the Tent of Meeting for all the service of the Tent, and no outsider shall come near you. Bamidbar 18:4


+ 78 They shall keep the charge of the Sanctuary and the charge of the altar, so that there be no more wrath against the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:5


+ 112 I have therefore taken your brethren, the Levites, from among the children of Israel; they are given to you as a gift, and given over to the Lord to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:6


+ 103 And you and your sons shall keep your kehunah in all matters concerning the altar, and concerning what is within the dividing screen, and you shall serve; the service as a gift I have given your kehunah, and any outsider non-kohen who approaches shall die. Bamidbar 18:7


+ 121 The Lord told Aaron: Behold I have given you the charge of My gift offerings. I have thus given you all the holy things of the children of Israel for distinction, and as an eternal portion for your sons. Bamidbar 18:8


+ 83 These shall be yours from the holiest of holies, from the fire: all their offerings, their meal-offerings, their sin-offerings, their guilt-offerings, and what they return to Me; they shall be holy of holies to you and to your sons. Bamidbar 18:9


+ 91 You shall eat it in the holiest of places. Any male may eat of it; it shall be holy to you. Bamidbar 18:10


+ 108 This shall be yours what is set aside for their gifts from all the wavings of the children of Israel; I have given them to you, and to your sons and to your daughters with you, as an eternal portion. Any ritually clean member of your household may eat it. Bamidbar 18:11


+ 81 The choice of the oil and the choice of the wine and grain, the first of which they give to the Lord, to you I have given them. Bamidbar 18:12


+ 90 The first fruit of all that grows in their land, which they shall bring to the Lord shall be yours; any ritually clean member of your household may eat of it. Bamidbar 18:13


+ 92 Any devoted thing in Israel shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:14


+ 109 Every first issue of the womb of any creature, which they present to the Lord, whether of man or beast, shall be yours. However, you shall redeem the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem. Bamidbar 18:15


+ 99 Its redemption shall be performed from the age of a month, according to the valuation, five shekels of silver, according to the holy shekel, which is twenty gerahs. Bamidbar 18:16


+ 107 However, a firstborn ox or a firstborn sheep or a firstborn goat shall not be redeemed, for they are holy; their blood shall be sprinkled on the altar, and their fats shall be burned as a fire-offering, as a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 18:17


+ 79 Their flesh shall be yours; like the breast of the waving and the right thigh, it shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:18


+ 97 All the gifts of the holy offerings which are set aside by the children of Israel for the Lord I have given to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as an eternal portion; it is like an eternal covenant of salt before the Lord, for you and your descendants with you. Bamidbar 18:19


+ 83 The Lord said to Aaron, You shall not inherit in their land, and you shall have no portion among them. I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:20


+ 92 And to the descendants of Levi, I have given all tithes of Israel as an inheritance, in exchange for their service which they perform-the service of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:21


+ 83 The children of Israel shall therefore no longer approach the Tent of Meeting, lest they bear sin and die. Bamidbar 18:22


+ 105 The Levites shall perform the service of the Tent of Meeting, and they will bear their iniquity; it is an eternal statute for your generations, but among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. Bamidbar 18:23


+ 100 For the tithes of the children of Israel, which they shall set aside for the Lord as a gift, I have given to the Levites as an inheritance. Thus, I have said to them that they shall have no inheritance among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:24


+ 85 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 18:25


+ 114 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 95 Your gift shall be considered for you as grain from the threshing-floor and as the produce of the vat. Bamidbar 18:27


+ 106 So shall you too set aside a gift for the Lord from all the tithes you take from the children of Israel, and you shall give thereof the Lord's gift to Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 18:28


+ 103 From all your gifts, you shall set aside every gift of the Lord, from its choicest portion, that part of it which is to be consecrated. Bamidbar 18:29


+ 116 Say to them, When you separate its choicest part, it shall be considered for the Levites as produce from the threshing-floor and as produce from the vat. Bamidbar 18:30


+ 104 You and your household may eat it anywhere, for it is your wage for you in exchange for your service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:31


+ 104 After you separate the choicest part from it, you shall not bear any sin on account of it, but you shall not profane the sacred offerings of the children of Israel, so that you shall not die. Bamidbar 18:32


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: Bamidbar 19:1


+ 116 This is the statute of the Torah which the Lord commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid. Bamidbar 19:2


+ 83 And you shall give it to Eleazar the kohen, and he shall take it outside the camp and slaughter it in his presence. Bamidbar 19:3


+ 94 Eleazar the kohen shall take from its blood with his finger and sprinkle it toward the front of the Tent of Meeting seven times. Bamidbar 19:4


+ 82 The cow shall then be burned in his presence; its hide, its flesh, its blood, with its dung he shall burn it. Bamidbar 19:5


+ 96 The kohen shall take a piece of cedar wood, hyssop, and crimson wool, and cast them into the burning of the cow. Bamidbar 19:6


+ 87 The kohen shall wash his garments and bathe his flesh in water, and then he may enter the camp, and the kohen shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:7


+ 87 The one who burns it shall wash his clothes in water and cleanse his body in water, and he shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:8


+ 106 A ritually clean person shall gather the cow's ashes and place them outside the camp in a clean place, and It shall be as a keepsake for the congregation of the children of Israel for sprinkling water, used for cleansing. Bamidbar 19:9


+ 113 The one who gathers the cow's ashes shall wash his clothes, and he shall be unclean until evening. It shall be an everlasting statute for the children of Israel and for the proselyte who resides in their midst. Bamidbar 19:10


+ 92 Anyone touching the corpse of a human soul shall become unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:11


+ 87 On the third and seventh days, he shall cleanse himself with it, so that he can become clean. But if he does not sprinkle himself with it on the third and seventh days, he shall not become clean. Bamidbar 19:12


+ 107 Whoever touches the corpse of a human soul which dies, and he does not cleanse himself, he has defiled the Mishkan of the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from Israel. For the sprinkling water was not sprinkled on him, so he remains unclean, and his uncleanness remains upon him. Bamidbar 19:13


+ 89 This is the law: if a man dies in a tent, anyone entering the tent and anything in the tent shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:14


+ 83 Any open vessel which has no seal fastened around it becomes unclean. Bamidbar 19:15


+ 101 Anyone who touches one slain by the sword, or a corpse, or a human bone or a grave, in an open field, he shall be unclean for seven days. Bamidbar 19:16


+ 85 They shall take for that unclean person from the ashes of the burnt purification offering, and it shall be placed in a vessel filled with spring water. Bamidbar 19:17


+ 94 A ritually clean person shall take the hyssop and dip it into the water and sprinkle it on the tent, on all the vessels, and on the people who were in it, and on anyone who touched the bone, the slain person, the corpse, or the grave. Bamidbar 19:18


+ 96 The ritually clean person shall sprinkle on the unclean person on the third day and on the seventh day, and he shall cleanse him on the seventh day, and he shall wash his clothes and bathe in water, and he shall become ritually clean in the evening. Bamidbar 19:19


+ 95 If a person becomes unclean and does not cleanse himself, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation, for he has defiled the Sanctuary of the Lord; the sprinkling waters were not sprinkled upon him. He is unclean. Bamidbar 19:20


+ 101 This shall be for them as a perpetual statute, and the one who sprinkles the sprinkling waters shall wash his clothes, and one who touches the sprinkling waters shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:21


+ 86 Whatever the unclean one touches shall become unclean, and anyone touching him shall be unclean until evening. Bamidbar 19:22


+ 97 The entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at the desert of Zin in the first month, and the people settled in Kadesh. Miriam died there and was buried there. Bamidbar 20:1


+ 75 The congregation had no water; so they assembled against Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 20:2


+ 95 The people quarreled with Moses, and they said, If only we had died with the death of our brothers before the Lord. Bamidbar 20:3


+ 85 Why have you brought the congregation of the Lord to this desert so that we and our livestock should die there? Bamidbar 20:4


+ 100 Why have you taken us out of Egypt to bring us to this evil place; it is not a place for seeds, or for fig trees, grapevines, or pomegranate trees, and there is no water to drink. Bamidbar 20:5


+ 102 Moses and Aaron moved away from the assembly to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and they fell on their faces. Then the glory of the Lord appeared to them. Bamidbar 20:6


+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 20:7


+ 99 "Take the staff and assemble the congregation, you and your brother Aaron, and speak to the rock in their presence so that it will give forth its water. You shall bring forth water for them from the rock and give the congregation and their livestock to drink." Bamidbar 20:8


+ 85 Moses took the staff from before the Lord as He had commanded him. Bamidbar 20:9


+ 105 Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation in front of the rock, and he said to them, "Now listen, you rebels, can we draw water for you from this rock?" Bamidbar 20:10


+ 114 Moses raised his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, when an abundance of water gushed forth, and the congregation and their livestock drank. Bamidbar 20:11


+ 111 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Since you did not have faith in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly to the Land which I have given them. Bamidbar 20:12


+ 104 These are the waters of dispute Mei Meribah where the children of Israel contended with the Lord, and He was sanctified through them. Bamidbar 20:13


+ 102 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: "So says your brother, Israel, 'You know of all the hardship that has befallen us. Bamidbar 20:14


+ 88 Our fathers went down to Egypt, and we sojourned in Egypt for a long time. And the Egyptians mistreated us and our forefathers. Bamidbar 20:15


+ 75 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16


+ 100 Please let us pass through your land; we will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink well water. We will walk along the king's road, and we will turn neither to the right nor to the left until we have passed through your territory. Bamidbar 20:17


+ 84 Edom replied to him, "You shall not pass through me, lest I go out towards you with the sword!" Bamidbar 20:18


+ 115 The children of Israel said to him, "We will keep to the highway, and if we drink your water, either I or my cattle, we will pay its price. It is really nothing; I will pass through on foot." Bamidbar 20:19


+ 81 But he said, "You shall not pass through!" and Edom came out toward them with a vast force and with a strong hand. Bamidbar 20:20


+ 88 Edom refused to allow Israel to cross through his territory; so Israel turned away from him. Bamidbar 20:21


+ 74 They traveled from Kadesh, and the entire congregation of the children of Israel arrived at Mount Hor. Bamidbar 20:22


+ 85 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron at Mount Hor, on the border of the land of Edom, saying, Bamidbar 20:23


+ 120 Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not come to the Land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you defied My word at the waters of dispute Mei Meribah. Bamidbar 20:24


+ 75 Take Aaron and Eleazar his son and ascend Mount Hor. Bamidbar 20:25


+ 92 Strip Aaron of his garments and dress Eleazar his son with them. Then Aaron shall be gathered in to his people and die there. Bamidbar 20:26


+ 92 Moses did as the Lord commanded him. They ascended Mount Hor in the presence of the entire congregation. Bamidbar 20:27


+ 100 Moses then stripped Aaron of his garments and dressed Eleazar his son in them, and Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. Then Moses and Eleazar descended from the mountain. Bamidbar 20:28


+ 91 The whole congregation saw that Aaron had expired, and the entire house of Israel wept for Aaron for thirty days. Bamidbar 20:29


+ 104 The Canaanite king of Arad, who lived in the south, heard that Israel had come by the route of the spies, and he waged war against Israel and took from them a captive. Bamidbar 21:1


+ 80 Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, "If You deliver this people into my hand, I shall consecrate their cities." Bamidbar 21:2


+ 101 The Lord heard Israel's voice and delivered the Canaanite. He destroyed them and consecrated their cities, and he called the place Hormah. Bamidbar 21:3


+ 100 They journeyed from Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea to circle the land of Edom, and the people became disheartened because of the way. Bamidbar 21:4


+ 95 The people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in this desert, for there is no bread and no water, and we are disgusted with this rotten bread." Bamidbar 21:5


+ 98 The Lord sent against the people the venomous snakes, and they bit the people, and many people of Israel died. Bamidbar 21:6


+ 101 The people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that He remove the snakes from us." So Moses prayed on behalf of the people. Bamidbar 21:7


+ 85 The Lord said to Moses, Make yourself a serpent and put it on a pole, and let whoever is bitten look at it and live. Bamidbar 21:8


+ 89 Moses made a copper snake and put it on a pole, and whenever a snake bit a man, he would gaze upon the copper snake and live. Bamidbar 21:9


+ 79 The children of Israel journeyed on and camped in Oboth. Bamidbar 21:10


+ 97 They journeyed from Oboth and camped in the wasteland passes in the wilderness, which faced Moab, toward the rising sun. Bamidbar 21:11


+ 82 From there they journeyed, and they encamped along the stream of Zered. Bamidbar 21:12


+ 99 From there they journeyed, and they encamped on the other side of the Arnon, which was in the desert, extending from the Amorite border, for Arnon was the Moabite border between Moab and the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:13


+ 96 Concerning this it is told in the account of the Wars of the Lord, What He gave at the Sea of Reeds and the streams of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:14


+ 69 And the spilling of the streams that turned to settle at Ar and leaned toward the border of Moab. Bamidbar 21:15


+ 74 From there to the well; that is the well of which the Lord said to Moses, Gather the people, and I will give them water. Bamidbar 21:16


+ 75 Then Israel sang this song: Ascend, O well, sing to it! Bamidbar 21:17


+ 99 A well dug by princes, carved out by nobles of the people, through the lawgiver with their staffs, and from the desert, a gift. Bamidbar 21:18


+ 84 From the gift, to the streams, and from the streams to the heights. Bamidbar 21:19


+ 92 From the heights to the valley in the field of Moab, at the top of the peak, that overlooks the wastelands. Bamidbar 21:20


+ 81 Israel sent messengers to Sihon the king of the Amorites, saying: Bamidbar 21:21


+ 94 "Let me pass through your land. We will not turn into fields or vineyards, nor drink well water. We shall walk along the king's road, until we have passed through your territory." Bamidbar 21:22


+ 94 But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his territory, and Sihon gathered all his people and went out to the desert toward Israel. He arrived at Jahaz and fought against Israel. Bamidbar 21:23


+ 95 Israel smote him with the sword, and took possession of his land from Arnon to Jabbok, as far as the children of Ammon, for the border of the children of Ammon was strong. Bamidbar 21:24


+ 99 Israel took all these cities, and the Israelites dwelt in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon and all its villages. Bamidbar 21:25


+ 87 For Heshbon was the city of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and he had fought against the first king of Moab, taking all his land from his possession, as far as Arnon. Bamidbar 21:26


+ 91 Concerning this, those who speak in parables say, Come to Heshbon, may it be built and established as the city of Sihon. Bamidbar 21:27


+ 84 For fire went forth from Heshbon, a flame from the city of Sihon; it consumed Ar of Moab, the masters of the high places of Arnon. Bamidbar 21:28


+ 90 Woe is to you, Moab; you are lost, people of Chemosh. His sons he has given over as refugees and his daughters into captivity, to Sihon, king of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:29


+ 104 Their kingdom is destroyed from Heshbon; it has been removed from Dibon; we laid them waste as far as Nophah which is near Medeba. Bamidbar 21:30


+ 79 Israel settled in the land of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:31


+ 90 Moses sent men to spy out Jaazer and they captured its villages, driving out the Amorites who lived there. Bamidbar 21:32


+ 93 Then they turned and headed north toward the Bashan. Og, the king of Bashan, came out toward them with all his people, to wage war at Edrei. Bamidbar 21:33


+ 106 The Lord said to Moses, "Do not fear him, for I have delivered him, his people, and his land into your hand. You shall do to him as you did to Sihon the king of the Amorites who dwells in Heshbon. Bamidbar 21:34


+ 82 They smote him, his sons and all his people, until there was no survivor, and they took possession of his land. Bamidbar 21:35


+ 100 The children of Israel journeyed and encamped in the plains of Moab, across the Jordan from Jericho. Bamidbar 22:1


+ 84 Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites. Bamidbar 22:2


+ 91 Moab became terrified of the people, for they were numerous, and Moab became disgusted because of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 22:3


+ 84 Moab said to the elders of Midian, Now this assembly will eat up everything around us, as the ox eats up the greens of the field. Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. Bamidbar 22:4


+ 111 He sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor, to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of his people, to call for him, saying, A people has come out of Egypt, and behold, they have covered the "eye" of the land, and they are stationed opposite me. Bamidbar 22:5


+ 102 So now, please come and curse this people for me, for they are too powerful for me. Perhaps I will be able to wage war against them and drive them out of the land, for I know that whomever you bless is blessed and whomever you curse is cursed. Bamidbar 22:6


+ 104 So the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian went, with magic charms in their hands, and they came to Balaam and conveyed Balak's message to him. Bamidbar 22:7


+ 103 He said to them, Lodge here for the night, and I will give you an answer when the Lord speaks to me. So the Moabite nobles stayed with Balaam. Bamidbar 22:8


+ 88 God came to Balaam and said, Who are these men with you? Bamidbar 22:9


+ 79 Balaam said to God, Balak the son of Zippor the king of Moab has sent them to me, saying: Bamidbar 22:10


+ 99 Behold the people coming out of Egypt, a nation, has covered the 'eye' of the earth. Come and curse them for me, perhaps I will be able to fight against them and drive them out. Bamidbar 22:11


+ 82 God said to Balaam, You shall not go with them! You shall not curse the people because they are blessed. Bamidbar 22:12


+ 94 When Balaam arose in the morning, he said to Balak's nobles, Return to your country, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you. Bamidbar 22:13


+ 83 Moab's nobles arose and came to Balak and said, Balaam refuses to come with us. Bamidbar 22:14


+ 85 So Balak continued to send dignitaries, more and higher in rank than these. Bamidbar 22:15


+ 82 They came to Balaam and said to him, So said Balak the son of Zippor, Please do not hesitate to come to me. Bamidbar 22:16


+ 93 For I will honor you greatly and do whatever you tell me to do. So please come and curse this people for me. Bamidbar 22:17


+ 109 Balaam answered and said to Balak's servants, Even if Balak gives me a house full of silver and gold, I cannot do anything small or great that would transgress the word of the Lord, my God. Bamidbar 22:18


+ 97 Now, you too, please remain here overnight, and I will know what the Lord will continue to speak with me. Bamidbar 22:19


+ 88 God came to Balaam at night and said to him, If these men have come to call for you, arise and go with them, but the word I speak to you-that you shall do. Bamidbar 22:20


+ 96 In the morning Balaam arose, saddled his she-donkey and went with the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:21


+ 90 God's wrath flared because he was going, and an angel of the Lord stationed himself on the road to thwart him, and he was riding on his she-donkey, and his two servants were with him. Bamidbar 22:22


+ 100 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord stationed on the road with his sword drawn in his hand; so the she-donkey turned aside from the road and went into a field. Balaam beat the she-donkey to get it back onto the road. Bamidbar 22:23


+ 72 The angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, with a fence on this side and a fence on that side. Bamidbar 22:24


+ 89 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord, and she was pressed against the wall. She pressed Balaam's leg against the wall, and he beat her again. Bamidbar 22:25


+ 85 The angel of the Lord continued going ahead, and he stood in a narrow place, where there was no room to turn right or left. Bamidbar 22:26


+ 89 The she-donkey saw the angel of the Lord, and it crouched down under Balaam. Balaam's anger flared, and he beat the she-donkey with a stick. Bamidbar 22:27


+ 85 The Lord opened the mouth of the she-donkey, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you that you have struck me these three times?" Bamidbar 22:28


+ 93 Balaam said to the she-donkey, "For you have humiliated me; if I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now." Bamidbar 22:29


+ 109 The she-donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your she-donkey on which you have ridden since you first started until now? Have I been accustomed to do this to you?" He said, "No." Bamidbar 22:30


+ 106 The Lord opened Balaam's eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road, with a sword drawn in his hand. He bowed and prostrated himself on his face. Bamidbar 22:31


+ 103 The angel of the Lord said to him, Why have you beaten your she-donkey these three times? Behold, I have came out to thwart you, for the one embarking on the journey has hastened against me. Bamidbar 22:32


+ 89 When the she-donkey saw me, it turned aside these three times. Had she not turned aside before me, now also I would also have killed you and spared her. Bamidbar 22:33


+ 96 Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have sinned, for I did not know that you were standing on the road before me. Now, if it displeases you, I will return. Bamidbar 22:34


+ 96 The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, Go with these men, but the word I will speak to you-that you shall speak. So Balaam went with Balak's dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:35


+ 85 Balak heard that Balaam was coming; so he went out toward him to the city of Moab which is on the border of Arnon-at the extreme edge of the border. Bamidbar 22:36


+ 104 Balak said to Balaam, "Did I not send to you to call for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I indeed incapable of honoring you?" Bamidbar 22:37


+ 101 Balaam said to Balak, "Behold I have come to you, do I have any power to say anything? The word God puts into my mouth-that I will speak." Bamidbar 22:38


+ 90 Balaam went with Balak, and they arrived at Kiryath Huzoth a city of streets. Bamidbar 22:39


+ 90 Balak slaughtered cattle and sheep and sent some to Balaam and to the dignitaries with him. Bamidbar 22:40


+ 91 And in the morning Balak took Balaam and led him up to Bamoth Baal, and from there he saw part of the people. Bamidbar 22:41


+ 98 Balaam said to Balak, "Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams." Bamidbar 23:1


+ 82 Balak did as Balaam had requested, and Balak and Balaam offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:2


+ 85 Balaam said to Balak, "Stand beside your burnt offering, and I will go. Perhaps the Lord will happen to appear to me, and He will show me something that I can tell you," and he went alone. Bamidbar 23:3


+ 91 God chanced upon Balaam, and he said to Him, "I have set up the seven altars, and I have offered up a bull and a ram on each altar." Bamidbar 23:4


+ 91 The Lord placed something into Balaam's mouth, and He said, "Return to Balak and say as follows." Bamidbar 23:5


+ 86 When he returned, Balak was standing next to his burnt offering, he and all the Moabite dignitaries. Bamidbar 23:6


+ 113 He took up his parable and said, Balak the king of Moab has brought me from Aram, from the mountains of the east saying, Come, curse Jacob for me and come invoke wrath against Israel. Bamidbar 23:7


+ 88 How can I curse whom God has not cursed, and how can I invoke wrath if the Lord has not been angered? Bamidbar 23:8


+ 97 For from their beginning, I see them as mountain peaks, and I behold them as hills; it is a nation that will dwell alone, and will not be reckoned among the nations. Bamidbar 23:9


+ 119 Who counted the dust of Jacob or the number of a fourth of or, of the seed of Israel? May my soul die the death of the upright and let my end be like his. Bamidbar 23:10


+ 92 Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them! Bamidbar 23:11


+ 103 He answered, saying, What the Lord puts into my mouth that I must take care to say. Bamidbar 23:12


+ 107 Balak said to him, Come with me to another place from where you will see them; however, you will see only a part of them, not all of them and curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:13


+ 93 He took him to the field of the lookouts, to the peak of the mountain, and he built seven altars and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:14


+ 91 He said to Balak, Stand here next to your burnt offering and I will be chanced on here. Bamidbar 23:15


+ 103 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 93 When he came to him, he was standing next to his burnt offering, and the Moabite dignitaries were with him, and Balak said to him, What did the Lord speak? Bamidbar 23:17


+ 88 He took up his parable and said, Arise, Balak, and hear; listen closely to me, son of Zippor. Bamidbar 23:18


+ 84 God is not a man that He should lie, nor is He a mortal that He should relent. Would He say and not do, speak and not fulfill? Bamidbar 23:19


+ 95 I have received an instruction to bless, and He has blessed, and I cannot retract it. Bamidbar 23:20


+ 117 He does not look at evil in Jacob, and has seen no perversity in Israel; the Lord, his God, is with him, and he has the King's friendship. Bamidbar 23:21


+ 75 God has brought them out of Egypt with the strength of His loftiness. Bamidbar 23:22


+ 100 For there is no divination in Jacob and no soothsaying in Israel. In time it will be said to Jacob and Israel, What has God wrought? Bamidbar 23:23


+ 103 Behold, a people that rises like a lioness See Malbim and raises itself like a lion. It does not lie down until it eats its prey and drinks the blood of the slain. Bamidbar 23:24


+ 94 Balak said to Balaam, "You shall neither curse them nor shall you bless them." Bamidbar 23:25


+ 102 Balaam answered and said to Balak, "Have I not spoken to you, saying, 'Everything the Lord speaks that I shall do." Bamidbar 23:26


+ 95 Balak said to Balaam, Come now, I will take you to a different place. Perhaps it will please God, and you will curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:27


+ 99 So Balak took Balaam to the peak of Peor, overlooking the wastelands. Bamidbar 23:28


+ 88 Balaam said to Balak, Build me seven altars here and prepare for me seven bulls and seven rams. Bamidbar 23:29


+ 86 Balak did as Balaam told him, and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:30


+ 132 Balaam saw that it pleased the Lord to bless Israel; so he did not go in search of omens as he had done time and time again, but turned his face toward the desert. Bamidbar 24:1


+ 106 Balaam raised his eyes and saw Israel dwelling according to its tribes, and the spirit of God rested upon him. Bamidbar 24:2


+ 79 He took up his parable and said, The word of Balaam the son of Beor and the word of the man with an open eye. Bamidbar 24:3


+ 86 The word of the one who hears God's sayings, who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen yet with open eyes. Bamidbar 24:4


+ 110 How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! Bamidbar 24:5


+ 98 They extend like streams, like gardens by the river, like aloes which the Lord planted, like cedars by the water. Bamidbar 24:6


+ 114 Water will flow from his wells, and his seed shall have abundant water; his king shall be raised over Agag, and his kingship exalted. Bamidbar 24:7


+ 101 God, Who has brought them out of Egypt with the strength of His loftiness He shall consume the nations which are his adversaries, bare their bones and dip His arrows into their blood. Bamidbar 24:8


+ 94 He crouches and lies like a lion and like a lioness; who will dare rouse him? Those who bless you shall be blessed, and those who curse you shall be cursed. Bamidbar 24:9


+ 112 Balak's anger flared against Balaam, and he clapped his hands. Balak said to Balaam, I called you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. Bamidbar 24:10


+ 82 Now, hurry back to your place. I said I would honor you greatly, but the Lord has deprived you of honor. Bamidbar 24:11


+ 89 Balaam said to Balak, But I even told the messengers you sent to me, saying, Bamidbar 24:12


+ 101 If Balak gives me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot transgress the word of the Lord to do either good or evil on my own; only what the Lord speaks can I speak. Bamidbar 24:13


+ 73 And now, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you...what this people will do to your people at the end of days. Bamidbar 24:14


+ 80 He took up his parable and said, The word of Balaam, son of Beor, the word of a man with an open eye. Bamidbar 24:15


+ 97 The word of the one who hears God's sayings and perceives the thoughts of the Most High; who sees the vision of the Almighty, fallen yet with open eyes. Bamidbar 24:16


+ 118 I see it, but not now; I behold it, but not soon. A star has gone forth from Jacob, and a staff will arise from Israel which will crush the princes of Moab and uproot all the sons of Seth. Bamidbar 24:17


+ 93 Edom shall be possessed, and Seir shall become the possession of his enemies, and Israel shall triumph. Bamidbar 24:18


+ 87 A ruler shall come out of Jacob, and destroy the remnant of the city. Bamidbar 24:19


+ 99 When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction. Bamidbar 24:20


+ 85 When he saw the Kenite, he took up his parable and said, How firm is your dwelling place, and your nest is set in a cliff. Bamidbar 24:21


+ 75 For if Kain is laid waste, how far will Assyria take you captive? Bamidbar 24:22


+ 77 He took up his parable and said, Alas! Who can survive these things from God? Bamidbar 24:23


+ 79 Ships will come from the Kittites and afflict Assyria and afflict those on the other side, but he too will perish forever. Bamidbar 24:24


+ 88 Balaam arose, went, and returned home, and Balak went on his way. Bamidbar 24:25


+ 100 Israel settled in Shittim, and the people began to commit harlotry with the daughters of the Moabites. Bamidbar 25:1


+ 83 They invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and prostrated themselves to their gods. Bamidbar 25:2


+ 84 Israel became attached to Baal Peor, and the anger of the Lord flared against Israel. Bamidbar 25:3


+ 89 Israel became attached to Baal Peor, and the anger of the Lord flared against Israel. Bamidbar 25:4


+ 100 Moses said to the judges of Israel, Each of you shall kill the men who became attached to Baal Peor. Bamidbar 25:5


+ 92 Then an Israelite man came and brought the Midianite woman to his brethren, before the eyes of Moses and before the eyes of the entire congregation of the children of Israel, while they were weeping at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 25:6


+ 78 Phinehas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen saw this, arose from the congregation, and took a spear in his hand. Bamidbar 25:7


+ 103 He went after the Israelite man into the chamber and drove it through both of them; the Israelite man, and the woman through her stomach, and the plague ceased from the children of Israel. Bamidbar 25:8


+ 84 Those that died in the plague numbered twenty four thousand. Bamidbar 25:9


+ 79 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 25:10


+ 108 Phinehas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen has turned My anger away from the children of Israel by his zealously avenging Me among them, so that I did not destroy the children of Israel because of My zeal. Bamidbar 25:11


+ 88 Therefore, say, I hereby give him My covenant of peace. Bamidbar 25:12


+ 100 It shall be for him and for his descendants after him as an eternal covenant of kehunah, because he was zealous for his God and atoned for the children of Israel. Bamidbar 25:13


+ 114 The name of the Israelite man who was killed, who was slain with the Midianite woman was Zimri the son of Salu, the chieftain of the Simeonite paternal house. Bamidbar 25:14


+ 86 And the name of the Midianite woman who was slain was Cozbi the daughter of Zur, a national leader of a paternal house in Midian. Bamidbar 25:15


+ 88 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 25:16


+ 89 Distress the Midianites, and you shall smite them. Bamidbar 25:17


+ 104 For they distress you with their plots which they contrived against you in the incident of Peor and in the incident of Cozbi their sister, the daughter of the Midianite chieftain, who was slain on the day of the plague that had come because of Peor. Bamidbar 25:18


+ 84 It was after the plague, that the Lord spoke to Moses and to Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen, saying: Bamidbar 26:1


+ 112 Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel from twenty years old and upwards, following their fathers' houses, all that are fit to go out to war in Israel. Bamidbar 26:2


+ 93 Moses and Eleazar the kohen spoke with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying: Bamidbar 26:3


+ 86 "From the age of twenty and upward, as the Lord commanded Moses and the children of Israel who had come out of Egypt." Bamidbar 26:4

+ 88 To the large tribe you shall give a larger inheritance and to a smaller tribe you shall give a smaller inheritance, each person shall be given an inheritance according to his number. Bamidbar 26:54

+ 96 And those counted of them were twenty three thousand, every male aged one month and upward, for they were not counted among the children of Israel, since no inheritance was given them among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 26:62


+ 96 This was the census of Moses and Eleazar the kohen, who counted the children of Israel in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 26:63


+ 113 Among these there was no man who had been [included] in the census of Moses and Aaron when they counted the children of Israel in the Sinai desert. Bamidbar 26:64


+ 85 For the Lord had said to them, "They shall surely die in the desert," and no one was left of them but Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 26:65


+ 103 The daughters of Zelophehad the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph, came forward, and his daughters' names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Bamidbar 27:1


+ 89 They stood before Moses and before Eleazar the kohen and before the chieftains and the entire congregation at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, saying, Bamidbar 27:2


+ 83 "Our father died in the desert, but he was not in the assembly that banded together against the Lord in Korah's assembly, but he died for his own sin, and he had no sons. Bamidbar 27:3


+ 85 Why should our father's name be eliminated from his family because he had no son? Give us a portion along with our father's brothers. " Bamidbar 27:4


+ 97 So Moses brought their case before the Lord. Bamidbar 27:5


+ 80 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 27:6


+ 91 Zelophehad's daughters speak justly. You shall certainly give them a portion of inheritance along with their father's brothers, and you shall transfer their father's inheritance to them. Bamidbar 27:7


+ 96 Speak to the children of Israel saying: If a man dies and has no son, you shall transfer his inheritance to his daughter. Bamidbar 27:8


+ 83 If he has no daughter, you shall give over his inheritance to his brothers. Bamidbar 27:9


+ 82 If he has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to his father's brothers. Bamidbar 27:10


+ 117 If his father has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to the kinsman closest to him in his family, who shall inherit it. This shall remain a decreed statute, as the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 27:11


+ 94 The Lord said to Moses, "Go up to this mount Abarim and look at the land that I have given to the children of Israel. Bamidbar 27:12


+ 82 And when you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother was gathered. Bamidbar 27:13


+ 115 Because you disobeyed My command in the desert of Zin when the congregation quarreled, when you were to sanctify Me through the water before their eyes; these were the waters of dispute at Kadesh, in the desert of Zin. Bamidbar 27:14


+ 87 Moses spoke to the Lord, saying: Bamidbar 27:15


+ 72 "Let the Lord, the God of spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, Bamidbar 27:16


+ 72 Who will go forth before them and come before them, who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation of the Lord will not be like sheep without a shepherd." Bamidbar 27:17


+ 95 The Lord said to Moses, Take for yourself Joshua the son of Nun, a man of spirit, and you shall lay your hand upon him. Bamidbar 27:18


+ 82 And you shall present him before Eleazar the kohen and before the entire congregation, and you shall command him in their presence. Bamidbar 27:19


+ 102 You shall bestow some of your majesty upon him so that all the congregation of the children of Israel will take heed. Bamidbar 27:20


+ 112 He shall stand before Eleazar the kohen and seek counsel from him through the judgment of the Urim before the Lord. By his word they shall go, and by his word they shall come; he and all Israel with him, and the entire congregation. Bamidbar 27:21


+ 91 Moses did as the Lord had commanded him, and he took Joshua and presented him before Eleazar the kohen and before the entire congregation. Bamidbar 27:22


+ 98 He laid his hands upon him and commanded him, in accordance with what the Lord had spoken to Moses. Bamidbar 27:23


+ 80 The Lord spoke to: Moses, saying: Bamidbar 28:1


+ 104 Command the children of Israel and say to them: My offering, My food for My fire offerings, a spirit of satisfaction for Me, you shall take care to offer to Me at its appointed time. Bamidbar 28:2


+ 80 And you shall say to them: This is the fire offering which you shall offer to the Lord: two unblemished lambs in their first year each day as a continual burnt offering. Bamidbar 28:3

+ 95 Moses spoke to the children of Israel in accordance with all that the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 30:1


+ 95 Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, saying: This is the thing the Lord has commanded. Bamidbar 30:2


+ 83 If a man makes a vow to the Lord or makes an oath to prohibit himself, he shall not violate his word; according to whatever came out of his mouth, he shall do. Bamidbar 30:3


+ 78 If a woman makes a vow to the Lord, or imposes a prohibition upon herself while in her father's house, in her youth, Bamidbar 30:4


+ 85 If her father heard her vow or her prohibition which she has prohibited upon herself, yet her father remains silent, all her vows shall stand, and any prohibition that she has imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:5


+ 93 But if her father hinders her on the day he hears it, all her vows and her prohibitions that she has imposed upon herself shall not stand. The Lord will forgive her because her father hindered her. Bamidbar 30:6


+ 81 But if she is betrothed to a man, with her vows upon her or by an utterance of her lips which she has imposed upon herself, Bamidbar 30:7


+ 76 And her husband hears it but remains silent on the day he hears it, her vows shall stand, and her prohibition which she has imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:8


+ 101 But if her husband hinders her on the day he heard it, he has revoked the vow she had taken upon herself and the utterance which she had imposed upon herself, and the Lord will forgive her. Bamidbar 30:9


+ 68 As for the vow of a widow or a divorced woman, whatever she prohibited upon herself will remain upon her. Bamidbar 30:10


+ 81 But if she vowed in her husband's house, or imposed a prohibition upon herself with an oath. Bamidbar 30:11


+ 78 And her husband heard and remained silent, and did not hinder her, all her vows shall stand, and every prohibition she imposed upon herself shall stand. Bamidbar 30:12


+ 98 If her husband revokes them on the day he hears them, anything issuing from her lips regarding her vows or self imposed prohibitions shall not stand; her husband has revoked them and the Lord shall forgive her. Bamidbar 30:13


+ 78 Any vow or any binding oath of self affliction, her husband can either uphold it or revoke it. Bamidbar 30:14


+ 88 However, if her husband remained silent from day to day, he has upheld all the vows and prohibitions she has assumed; he has upheld them since he remained silent on the day he heard it. Bamidbar 30:15


+ 62 If he revokes them after having heard them, he shall bear her iniquity. Bamidbar 30:16


+ 92 These are the statutes which the Lord commanded Moses concerning a man and his wife, a father and his daughter, in her youth, while in her father's house. Bamidbar 30:17


+ 80 The Lord spoke to Moses saying, Bamidbar 31:1


+ 97 Take revenge for the children of Israel against the Midianites; afterwards you will be gathered to your people. Bamidbar 31:2


+ 88 So Moses spoke to the people, saying, "Arm from among you men for the army, that they can be against Midian, and carry out the revenge of the Lord against Midian. Bamidbar 31:3


+ 74 A thousand for each tribe, a thousand for each tribe, from all the tribes of Israel you shall send into the army. Bamidbar 31:4


+ 83 From the thousands of Israel one thousand was given over for each tribe, twelve thousand armed for battle. Bamidbar 31:5


+ 101 Moses sent them the thousand from each tribe to the army, them along with Phinehas the son of Eleazar the kohen to the army, with the sacred utensils and the trumpets for sounding in his possession. Bamidbar 31:6


+ 83 They mounted an attack against Midian, as the Lord had commanded Moses, and they killed every male. Bamidbar 31:7


+ 86 And they killed the Midianite kings upon their slain: Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian, and Balaam the son of Beor they slew with the sword. Bamidbar 31:8


+ 103 The children of Israel took the Midianite women and their small children captive, and they plundered all their beasts, livestock, and all their possessions. Bamidbar 31:9


+ 68 They set fire to all their residential cities and their castles. Bamidbar 31:10


+ 90 They took all the booty and all the plunder of man and beast. Bamidbar 31:11


+ 99 They brought the captives, the plunder, and the booty to Moses and to Eleazar the kohen and to the entire community of Israel in the camp, in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 31:13


+ 87 Moses, Eleazar the kohen, and all princes of the community went out to meet them, outside the camp. Bamidbar 31:14


+ 118 Moses became angry with the officers of the army, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, who had returned from the campaign of war. Bamidbar 31:14


+ 79 Moses said to them, Did you allow all the females to live? Bamidbar 31:15


+ 103 They were the same ones who were involved with the children of Israel on Balaam's advice to betray the Lord over the incident of Peor, resulting in a plague among the congregation of the Lord. Bamidbar 31:16


+ 83 So now kill every male child, and every woman who can lie intimately with a man you shall kill. Bamidbar 31:17


+ 80 And all the young girls who have no experience of intimate relations with a man, you may keep alive for yourselves. Bamidbar 31:18


+ 91 And you, encamp outside the camp for seven days; whoever killed a person or who touched a corpse shall cleanse himself on the third and seventh day, both you and your captives. Bamidbar 31:19


+ 84 All garments, leather articles, any goat product, and every wooden article shall undergo purification. Bamidbar 31:20


+ 85 Eleazar the kohen said to the soldiers returning from battle, This is the statute that the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:21


+ 70 Only the gold, the silver, the copper, the iron, the tin, and the lead. Bamidbar 31:22


+ 86 Whatever is used in fire you shall pass through fire and then it will be clean; it must, however, also be cleansed with sprinkling water, and whatever is not used in fire you shall pass through water. Bamidbar 31:23


+ 83 You shall wash your garments on the seventh day and become ritually clean; afterwards, you may enter the camp. Bamidbar 31:24


+ 81 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Bamidbar 31:25


+ 74 Take a count of the plunder of the captive people and animals, you, together with Eleazar the kohen and the paternal leaders of the community. Bamidbar 31:26


+ 78 And you shall divide the plunder equally between the warriors who went out to battle and the entire congregation. Bamidbar 31:27


+ 89 And you shall levy a tax for the Lord from the soldiers who went out to battle: one soul out of every five hundred, from the people, from the cattle, from the donkeys, and from the sheep. Bamidbar 31:28


+ 84 You shall take from their half and give it to Eleazar the kohen as a gift to the Lord. Bamidbar 31:29


+ 105 From the half belonging to the children of Israel you shall take one part out of fifty of the people, of the cattle, of the donkeys, of the sheep, and of all animals, and you shall give them to the Levites, the guardians of the Mishkan of the Lord." Bamidbar 31:30


+ 81 Moses and Eleazar the kohen did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:31


+ 84 The plunder, which was in addition to the spoils that the army had spoiled, consisted of six hundred and seventy five thousand sheep. Bamidbar 31:32


+ 65 Seventy two thousand cattle. Bamidbar 31:33


+ 62 Sixty one thousand donkeys. Bamidbar 31:34


+ 65 As for the people, of the women who had no experience of intimate relations with a man, all souls were thirty two thousand. Bamidbar 31:35


+ 79 The half that was the portion of those who went out to battle: the number of sheep was three hundred and thirty seven thousand, five hundred. Bamidbar 31:36


+ 72 The tax to the Lord from the sheep was six hundred and seventy five. Bamidbar 31:37


+ 79 Thirty six thousand cattle, of which the tax to the Lord was seventy two. Bamidbar 31:38


+ 67 Thirty thousand and five hundred donkeys, of which the tax to the Lord was sixty one. Bamidbar 31:39


+ 70 Sixteen thousand people, of which the tax to the Lord was thirty two people. Bamidbar 31:40


+ 77 Moses gave the tax which was a gift to the Lord, to Eleazar the kohen, as the Lord had commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:41


+ 107 And from the half allotted to the children of Israel, which Moses had divided from the men who had gone into the army. Bamidbar 31:42


+ 72 The community's half consisted of three hundred and thirty seven thousand, five hundred sheep. Bamidbar 31:43


+ 67 Thirty six thousand cattle. Bamidbar 31:44


+ 65 Thirty thousand five hundred donkeys. Bamidbar 31:45


+ 60 And sixteen thousand people. Bamidbar 31:46


+ 104 Moses took one part out of fifty from the half of the children of Israel, the people and the animals, and gave them to the Levites, the guardians of the Lord's sanctuary as G-d commanded Moses. Bamidbar 31:47


+ 93 The officers appointed over the army's thousands, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, approached Moses. Bamidbar 31:48


+ 100 They said to Moses, Your servants counted the soldiers who were in our charge, and not one man was missing from us. Bamidbar 31:49


+ 94 We therefore wish to bring an offering for the Lord. Any man who found a gold article, be it an anklet, a bracelet, a ring, an earring, or a body ornament, to atone for our souls before the Lord. Bamidbar 31:50


+ 97 Moses and Eleazar the kohen took all the gold articles from them. Bamidbar 31:51


+ 109 The total of the gift of gold which they dedicated to the Lord amounted to sixteen thousand, seven hundred and fifty shekels; this was from the commanders of the thousands and the commanders of the hundreds. Bamidbar 31:52


+ 77 The soldiers had seized spoils for themselves. Bamidbar 31:53


+ 103 Moses and Eleazar the kohen took the gold from the commanders of the thousands and hundreds and brought it to the Tent of Meeting, as a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord. Bamidbar 31:54


+ 103 The descendants of Reuben and Gad had an abundance of livestock very numerous and they saw the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead, and behold, the place was a place for livestock. Bamidbar 32:1


+ 91 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben came, and they spoke to Moses and to Eleazar the kohen and to the princes of the community, saying, Bamidbar 32:2


+ 87 Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, and Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo, and Beon, Bamidbar 32:3


+ 89 The land that the Lord struck down before the congregation of Israel is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock. Bamidbar 32:4


+ 92 They said, If it pleases you, let this land be given to your servants as a heritage; do not take us across the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:5


+ 93 Thereupon, Moses said to the descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben, Shall your brethren go to war while you stay here? Bamidbar 32:6


+ 96 Why do you discourage the children of Israel from crossing over to the land which the Lord has given them? Bamidbar 32:7


+ 81 This is what your fathers did when I sent them from Kadesh barnea to explore the Land. Bamidbar 32:8


+ 107 They went up to the Valley of Eshkol and saw the land, and they discouraged the children of Israel from crossing into the land which the Lord has given them. Bamidbar 32:9


+ 77 The anger of the Lord flared on that day, and He swore, saying, Bamidbar 32:10


+ 111 'None of the men from the age of twenty years and over who came out of Egypt will see the land that I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, for they did not follow Me wholeheartedly, Bamidbar 32:11


+ 105 Except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizite and Joshua the son of Nun, for they followed the Lord wholeheartedly. Bamidbar 32:12


+ 104 The anger of the Lord flared against Israel, and He made them wander in the desert for forty years until the entire generation who had done evil in the eyes of the Lord had died out. Bamidbar 32:13


+ 106 And behold, you have now risen in place of your fathers as a society of sinful people, to add to the wrathful anger of the Lord against Israel. Bamidbar 32:14


+ 89 If you turn away from following Him, He will leave you in the desert again, and you will destroy this entire people. Bamidbar 32:15


+ 97 They approached him and said, We will build sheepfolds for our livestock here and cities for our children. Bamidbar 32:16


+ 105 We will then arm ourselves quickly and go before the children of Israel until we have brought them to their place. Our children will reside in the fortified cities on account of the inhabitants of the land. Bamidbar 32:17


+ 89 We shall not return to our homes until each of the children of Israel has taken possession of his inheritance. Bamidbar 32:18


+ 77 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond, because our inheritance has come to us on the east bank of the Jordan. Bamidbar 32:19


+ 90 Moses said to them, If you do this thing, if you arm yourselves for battle before the Lord, Bamidbar 32:20


+ 78 And your armed force crosses the Jordan before the Lord until He has driven out His enemies before Him, Bamidbar 32:21


+ 94 And the Land will be conquered before the Lord, afterwards you may return, and you shall be freed [of your obligation] from the Lord and from Israel, and this land will become your heritage before the Lord. Bamidbar 32:22


+ 89 But, if you do not do so, behold, you will have sinned against the Lord, and be aware of your sin which will find you. Bamidbar 32:23


+ 96 So build yourselves cities for your children and enclosures for your sheep, and what has proceeded from your mouth you shall do." Bamidbar 32:24


+ 85 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben spoke to Moses, saying, "Your servants will do as my master commands. Bamidbar 32:25


+ 72 Our children and our wives, our livestock and our cattle will remain there, in the cities of Gilead. Bamidbar 32:26


+ 78 But your servants will cross over all who are armed for combat before the Lord, for the battle, as my master has spoken." Bamidbar 32:27


+ 98 Moses commanded Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun and all the paternal heads of the tribes of the children of Israel concerning them. Bamidbar 32:28


+ 95 Moses said to them, "If the descendants of Gad and Reuben cross the Jordan with you armed for battle before the Lord, and the Land is conquered before you, you shall give them the land of Gilead as a heritage. Bamidbar 32:29


+ 68 But if they do not cross over with you armed for battle, they shall receive a possession among you in the land of Canaan." Bamidbar 32:30


+ 78 The descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben answered, saying, "We shall do as the Lord has spoken to your servants. Bamidbar 32:31


+ 80 We shall cross over in an armed force before the Lord to the land of Canaan, and then we shall have the possession of our inheritance on this side of the Jordan." Bamidbar 32:32


+ 97 Moses gave the descendants of Gad and the descendants of Reuben and half the tribe of Manasseh the son of Joseph, the kingdom of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and the kingdom of Og, king of Bashan the land together with its cities within borders, the cities of the surrounding territory. Bamidbar 32:33


+ 62 The descendants of Gad built Dibon, Ataroth, and Aroer. Bamidbar 32:34


+ 65 And Atroth Shophan, Jazer, and Jogbehah. Bamidbar 32:35


+ 75 And Beth Nimrah and Beth Haran, fortified cities and sheepfolds. Bamidbar 32:36


+ 75 The descendants of Reuben built Heshbon, Elealeh, and Kirjathaim. Bamidbar 32:37


+ 74 And Nebo and Baal Meon, their names having been changed, and Sibmah. And they were called with names of the names of the cities they built. Bamidbar 32:38


+ 88 The children of Machir the son of Manasseh went to Gilead and conquered it, driving out the Amorites who were there. Bamidbar 32:39


+ 91 Moses gave Gilead to Machir the son of Manasseh, and he settled in it. Bamidbar 32:40


+ 76 Jair the son of Manasseh went and conquered their hamlets, and called them the hamlets of Jair. Bamidbar 32:41


+ 82 Nobah went and conquered Kenath and its surrounding villages, and called it Nobah, after his name. Bamidbar 32:42


+ 91 These are the journeys of the children of Israel who left the land of Egypt in their legions, under the charge of Moses and Aaron. Bamidbar 33:1


+ 90 Moses recorded their starting points for their journeys according to the word of the Lord, and these were their journeys with their starting points. Bamidbar 33:2


+ 99 They journeyed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day following the Passover sacrifice, the children of Israel left triumphantly before the eyes of all the Egyptians. Bamidbar 33:3


+ 96 And the Egyptians were busy burying because the Lord had struck down their firstborn and had wrought vengeance against their deities. Bamidbar 33:4


+ 79 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses and camped in Succoth. Bamidbar 33:5


+ 70 They journeyed from Succoth and camped in Etham, at the edge of the desert. Bamidbar 33:6


+ 87 They journeyed from Etham and camped in Pi hahiroth, which faces Baal zephon; and they camped in front of Migdol. Bamidbar 33:7


+ 91 They journeyed from Penei hahiroth and crossed in the midst of the sea to the desert. They walked for three days in the desert of Etham and camped in Marah. Bamidbar 33:8


+ 88 They journeyed from Marah and arrived in Elim, and in Elim there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they camped there. Bamidbar 33:9


+ 70 They journeyed from Elim and camped by the Red Sea. Bamidbar 33:10


+ 73 They journeyed from the Red Sea and camped in the desert of Sin. Bamidbar 33:11


+ 66 They journeyed from the desert of Sin and camped in Dophkah. Bamidbar 33:12


+ 78 They journeyed from Dophkah and camped in Alush. Bamidbar 33:13


+ 78 They journeyed from Alush and camped in Rephidim, but there there was no water for the people to drink. Bamidbar 33:14

+ 61 You shall clear out the Land and settle in it, for I have given you the Land to occupy it. Bamidbar 33:53


+ 90 You shall give the Land as an inheritance to your families by lot; to the large, you shall give a larger inheritance and to the small you shall give a smaller inheritance; wherever the lot falls shall be his; according to the tribes of your fathers, you shall inherit. Bamidbar 33:54


+ 97 But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle. Bamidbar 33:55


+ 61 And it will be that what I had intended to do to them, I will do to you. Bamidbar 33:56


+ 73 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Bamidbar 34:1

+ 78 The Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho saying: Bamidbar 35:1


+ 96 Command the children of Israel that they shall give to the Levites from their hereditary possession cities in which to dwell, and you shall give the Levites open spaces around the cities. Bamidbar 35:2


+ 69 These cities shall be theirs for dwelling, and their open spaces shall be for their cattle, their property, and for all their needs. Bamidbar 35:3


+ 83 The areas of open space for the cities which you shall give to the Levites shall extend from the wall of the city outward, one thousand cubits all around. Bamidbar 35:4


+ 97 You shall measure from outside the city, two thousand cubits on the eastern side, two thousand cubits on the southern side, two thousand cubits on the western side, and two thousand cubits on the northern side, with the city in the middle; this shall be your cities' open spaces. Bamidbar 35:5


+ 82 Among the cities you shall give to the Levites, shall be six cities of refuge, which you shall provide as places to which a murderer can flee. In addition to them, you shall provide forty two cities. Bamidbar 35:6


+ 74 All the cities you shall give to the Levites shall number forty eight cities, them with their open spaces. Bamidbar 35:7


+ 116 And as for the cities that you shall give from the possession of the children of Israel, you shall take more from a larger [holding] and you shall take less from a smaller one. Each one, according to the inheritance allotted to him, shall give of his cities to the Levites. Bamidbar 35:8


+ 82 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Bamidbar 35:9


+ 77 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you cross the Jordan to the land of Canaan, Bamidbar 35:10


+ 94 You shall designate cities for yourselves; they shall be cities of refuge for you, and a murderer who killed a person unintentionally shall flee there. Bamidbar 35:11


+ 87 These cities shall serve you as a refuge from an avenger, so that the murderer shall not die until he stands in judgment before the congregation. Bamidbar 35:12


+ 82 The cities that you provide shall serve as six cities of refuge for you. Bamidbar 35:13


+ 67 You shall provide the three cities in trans Jordan and the three cities in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge. Bamidbar 35:14


+ 106 These six cities shall be a refuge for the children of Israel and for the proselyte and resident among them, so that anyone who unintentionally kills a person can flee there. Bamidbar 35:15


+ 71 If he struck him with an iron instrument and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:16


+ 77 If he struck him with a fist sized stone which is deadly, and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:17


+ 84 Or with a fist sized wooden instrument which is deadly,and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:18


+ 67 The blood avenger shall kill the murderer; he may kill him when he meets him. Bamidbar 35:19


+ 86 If, out of hatred, he pushed him, or threw something at him with premeditation, and he died, Bamidbar 35:20


+ 88 Or if he maliciously struck him with his hand and he died, the assailant shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the blood avenger may kill the murderer when he meets him. Bamidbar 35:21


+ 88 But if he pushed him accidentally, without malice, or threw an object at him without premeditation, Bamidbar 35:22


+ 93 Or, with any stone which is deadly, and without seeing [his victim] he threw it down at him and it killed him, but he was not his enemy and bore him no malice Bamidbar 35:23


+ 77 Then the congregation shall judge between the assailant and the blood avenger, on the basis of these judgments. Bamidbar 35:24


+ 82 The congregation shall protect the murderer from the hand of the blood avenger, and the congregation shall return him to the city of refuge to which he had fled, and he shall remain there until the Kohen Gadol, who anointed him with the sacred oil, dies. Bamidbar 35:25


+ 68 But if the murderer goes beyond the border of the city of refuge to which he had fled, Bamidbar 35:26


+ 83 And the blood avenger finds him outside the limits of his city of refuge, and the blood avenger slays the murderer, he has no blood. Bamidbar 35:27


+ 74 For he shall remain in his city of refuge until the Kohen Gadol dies, and only after the Kohen Gadol has died, may the murderer return to the land which is his possession. Bamidbar 35:28


+ 89 These shall be for you a statute of justice for all your generations, in all your dwelling places. Bamidbar 35:29


+ 96 Whoever namely the blood avenger kills a person, based on the testimony of witnesses, he shall slay the murderer. A single witness may not testify against a person so that he should die. Bamidbar 35:30


+ 73 You shall not accept ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, for he shall be put to death. Bamidbar 35:31


+ 73 You shall not accept ransom for one who has fled to his city of refuge, to allow him to return to live in the Land, before the kohen has died. Bamidbar 35:32


+ 79 And you shall not corrupt the land in which you live, for the blood corrupts the land, and the blood which is shed in the land cannot be atoned for except through the blood of the one who shed it. Bamidbar 35:33


+ 99 And you shall not defile the land where you reside, in which I dwell, for I am the Lord Who dwells among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 35:34


+ 94 The paternal heads of the family of the sons of Gilead the son of Machir the son of Manasseh of the families of the sons of Joseph approached and spoke before Moses and before the chieftains, the paternal heads of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 36:1


+ 89 They said, The Lord commanded my master to give the Land as an inheritance through lot to the children of Israel, and our master was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters. Bamidbar 36:2


+ 90 Now, if they marry a member of another tribe of the children of Israel, their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father, and it will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and thus, it will be diminished from the lot of our inheritance. Bamidbar 36:3


+ 117 Even if the children of Israel will have a Jubilee, their inheritance will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:4


+ 101 Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, The tribe of Joseph's descendants speak justly. Bamidbar 36:5


+ 91 This is the word that the Lord has commanded regarding Zelophehad's daughters. Let them marry whomever they please, but they shall marry only to the family of their father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:6


+ 96 Thus, the inheritance of the children of Israel will not be transferred from tribe to tribe, for each person from the children of Israel will remain attached to the inheritance of his father's tribe. Bamidbar 36:7


+ 88 Every daughter from the tribes of the children of Israel who inherits property, shall marry a member of her father's tribe, so each one of the children of Israel shall inherit the property of his forefathers. Bamidbar 36:8


+ 101 And no inheritance will be transferred from one tribe to another tribe, for each person of the tribes of the children of Israel shall remain attached to his own inheritance." Bamidbar 36:9


+ 74 As the Lord had commanded Moses, so did Zelophehad's daughters do. Bamidbar 36:10


+ 88 Mahlah, Tirzah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Noah married their cousins. Bamidbar 36:11


+ 78 They married into the families of the sons of Manasseh the son of Joseph, and their inheritance remained with the tribe of their father's family. Bamidbar 36:12


+ 114 These are the commandments and the ordinances that the Lord commanded the children of Israel through Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho. Bamidbar 36:13


+ 88 And that family shall be called in Israel, "The family of the one whose shoe was removed." Devarim 25:10


+ 95 When you cross the Jordan, the following shall stand upon Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. Devarim 27:12


+ 116 Therefore, you will serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, [when you are] in famine, thirst, destitution, and lacking everything, and he will place an iron yoke upon your neck, until he has destroyed you. Devarim 28:48


+ 120 Perhaps there is among you a man, woman, family, or tribe, whose heart strays this day from the Lord, our God, to go and worship the deities of those nations. Perhaps there is among you a root that produces hemlock and wormwood. Devarim 29:17


+ 90 They will sprout hair from famine, attacked by demons, excised by Meriri. I will incite the teeth of livestock upon them, with the venom of creatures that slither in the dust. Devarim 32:24


+ 103 And of Benjamin he said, The Lord's beloved one shall dwell securely beside Him; He protects him all day long, and He dwells between his shoulders. Devarim 33:12


+ 80 And of Dan he said: Dan is a young lion, streaming from Bashan. Devarim 33:22

+ 81 The Rothschild family is the head of the organization in which I entered in Colorado. All the Occult Brotherhoods are part of it. It is a Lucifer Organization to install his reign in the whole world. ... Supposedly the Rothschilds have personal dealings with the Devil. I have personally been in his villa and have experienced it. And I know it is true. John Todd


+ 93 Rothschild is the Lord and Master of the money markets of the world, and of course virtually Lord and Master of everything else. He literally held the revenues of Southern Italy in pawn, and Monarchs and Ministers of all countries courted his advice and were guided by his suggestions. Benjamin Disraeli


+ 102 It was these same families [Rothschild, Rockefeller, Harriman, Bush, etc] who funded the eugenics movement which is pledged to remove the lower genetic blood streams and leave only those of superior stock.

+ 84 The real power is not corporate; it is private. They choose not to have a name. It is a dynasty of banking families - Rothschild and Rockefeller being two - that operate chiefly out of London, in the boardrooms out of the city of London and the Bank of England, which they own. Betty Dodson


+ 115 Under this roof are the heads of the family of Rothschild - a name famous in every capital of Europe and every division of the globe.

Benjamin Disraeli


+ 118 The Boer War occurred 37 years ago. Boer means farmer. Many criticized a great power like Britain for trying to wipe out the Boers. Upon making inquiry, I found all the gold and diamond mines of South Africa were owned by Jews; that Rothschild controlled gold; Samuels controlled silver, Baum controlled other mining, and Moses controlled base metals. Anything these people touch they inevitably pollute. Henry Hamilton Beamish


+ 95 Though they control scores of industrial, commercial, mining and tourist corporations, not one bears the name Rothschild.

+ 131 “What are the dead, anyway, but waves and energy? Light shining from a dead star? That, by the way, is a phrase of Julian's. I remember it from a lecture of his on the Iliad, when Patroklos appears to Achilles in a dream. There is a very moving passage where Achilles overjoyed at the sight of the apparition – tries to throw his arms around the ghost of his old friend, and it vanishes. The dead appear to us in dreams, said Julian, because that's the only way they can make us see them; what we see is only a projection, beamed from a great distance, light shining at us from a dead star… Which reminds me, by the way, of a dream I had a couple of weeks ago. I found myself in a strange deserted city – an old city, like London – underpopulated by war or disease. It was night; the streets were dark, bombed-out, abandoned. For a long time, I wandered aimlessly – past ruined parks, blasted statuary, vacant lots overgrown with weeds and collapsed apartment houses with rusted girders poking out of their sides like ribs. But here and there, interspersed among the desolate shells of the heavy old public buildings, I began to see new buildings, too, which were connected by futuristic walkways lit from beneath. Long, cool perspectives of modern architecture, rising phosphorescent and eerie from the rubble. I went inside one of these new buildings. It was like a laboratory, maybe, or a museum. My footsteps echoed on the tile floors.There was a cluster of men, all smoking pipes, gathered around an exhibit in a glass case that gleamed in the dim light and lit their faces ghoulishly from below. I drew nearer. In the case was a machine revolving slowly on a turntable, a machine with metal parts that slid in and out and collapsed in upon themselves to form new images. An Inca temple… click click click… the Pyramids… the Parthenon. History passing beneath my very eyes, changing every moment. 'I thought I'd find you here,' said a voice at my elbow. It was Henry. His gaze was steady and impassive in the dim light. Above his ear, beneath the wire stem of his spectacles, I could just make out the powder burn and the dark hole in his right temple. I was glad to see him, though not exactly surprised. 'You know,' I said to him, 'everybody is saying that you're dead.' He stared down at the machine. The Colosseum… click click click… the Pantheon. 'I'm not dead,' he said. 'I'm only having a bit of trouble with my passport.' 'What?' He cleared his throat. 'My movements are restricted,' he said.

'That information is classified, I'm afraid.' 1 looked around curiously. It seemed that I was the only visitor. 'Is it open to the public?' I said. 'Not generally, no.' I looked at him. There was so much I wanted to ask him, so much I wanted to say; but somehow I knew there wasn't time and even if there was, that it was all, somehow, beside the point. 'Are you happy here?'

+ 133 Your god, sir, is the World. In my eyes, you, too, if not an infidel, are an idolater. I conceive that you ignorantly worship: in all things you appear to me too superstitious. Sir, your god, your great Bel, your fish-tailed Dagon, rises before me as a demon. You, and such as you, have raised him to a throne, put on him a crown, given him a sceptre. Behold how hideously he governs! See him busied at the work he likes best - making marriages. He binds the young to the old, the strong to the imbecile. He stretches out the arm of Mezentius and fetters the dead to the living. In his realm there is hatred - secret hatred: there is disgust - unspoken disgust: there is treachery - family treachery: there is vice - deep, deadly, domestic vice. In his dominions, children grow unloving between parents who have never loved: infants are nursed on deception from their very birth: they are reared in an atmosphere corrupt with lies ... All that surrounds him hastens to decay: all declines and degenerates under his sceptre. Your god is a masked Death. ? Charlotte Bronte, Shirley

+ 114 “What is it that dies? A log of wood dies to become a few planks. The planks die to become a chair. The chair dies to become a piece of firewood, and the firewood dies to become ash. You give different names to the different shapes the wood takes, but the basic substance is there always. If we could always remember this, we would never worry about the loss of anything. We never lose anything; we never gain anything. By such discrimination we put an end to unhappiness. (118-119)” ? Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras


+ 113 The ego might resist change until a person’s level of discomfort becomes unbearable. A person can employ logic to overcome the ego’s defense mechanism and intentionally integrate needed revisions in a person’s obsolete or ineffective beliefs and behavior patterns. The subtle sense that something is amiss in a person’s life can lead to a gradual or quick alteration in a person’s conscious thoughts and outlook on life. Resisting change can prolong unhappiness whereas implementing change can establish internal harmony and instate joy in a person’s life. Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls


+ 145 Unhappiness and dissatisfaction with life are common themes in the American culture today. Folks sometimes mistake my meaning when I say, “You have the freedom of choice and the ability to create your best life”, because they all too often rush to drop everything that is weighing them down. They quit the job, ditch the unhappy marriage, cut out negative friends and family, get out of Dodge, etc. I do not advocate such hastiness; in fact, I believe that rash decision-making leads to more problems further down the road. Another unsatisfying job manifests; another unhappy relationship results. These people want a new environment, yet the same negative energy always seems to occupy it. This is because transformation is all about the internal shift, not the external. Any blame placed on outside sources for our unhappiness will forever perpetuate that unhappiness. Pointing the finger is giving away your power of choice and the ability to create our best life. We choose: “That person is making me unhappy” vs. “I make myself happy.” When you are in unhappy times of lack and feelings of separation – great! Sit there and be with it. Find ways to be content with little. Find ways to be happy with your Self. As we reflect on the lives of mystics past and present, it is not the things they possess or the relationships they share that bring them enlightenment – their light is within. The same light can bring us unwavering happiness (joy). Love, Peace, Joy – these three things all come from within and have an unwavering flame – life source – that is not dependent on the conditions of the outside world. This knowing is the power and wisdom that the mystics teach us that we are all capable of achieving. When I say, “You have the freedom of choice and the ability to create your best life”, I am not referring to external conditions; I am referring to the choice you have to look inward and discover the ability to transform the lead of the soul into gold. Transformation is an inner journey of the soul. Why? Because, as we mentioned above, wherever we go, ourselves go with us. Thus, quitting the job, dumping relationships, etc. will not make us happy because we have forgotten the key factor that makes or breaks our happiness: ourselves. When we find, create, and maintain peace, joy, and love within ourselves, we then gain the ability to embrace the external world with the same emotions, perspective, and vibration. This ability is a form of enlightenment. It is the modern man’s enlightenment that transforms an unsatisfying life into one of fulfillment. Alaric Hutchinson, Living Peace

+ 197 Who Is a Kabbalist? The Kabbalist is a researcher who studies his nature using a proven, time-tested and accurate method. He studies the essence of his existence using tools we can all utilize feelings, intellect and heart. A Kabbalist looks like an ordinary person. He need not have any special skills, talents, or occupation. He need not be a wise man or wear a holy expression. At some point in his life, this ordinary person decided to look for a way in which he would find credible answers to the questions that were troubling him. By utilizing a distinct method of learning, he was successful in acquiring an extra sense a sixth sense which is the spiritual sense. Through this sense, the Kabbalist feels the spiritual spheres as a clear reality, just as we feel our reality here; he receives knowledge about the spiritual spheres, the upper worlds, and the revelation of higher forces. These worlds are called upper worlds, since they are higher than and beyond our world. The Kabbalist ascends from his current spiritual level to the next one. This movement brings him from one upper world to the next. He sees the roots from which everything that exists here has developed, everything that fills our world, including ourselves. The Kabbalist is simultaneously in our world, and in the upper worlds. This quality is shared by all Kabbalists. Kabbalists receive the real information that surrounds us, and feel this reality. Therefore, they can study it, be familiar with it, and teach us about it. They provide a new method through which we can meet the source of our lives, leading us to spirituality. They use books that are written in a special language. We must read these books in a special way, so they become a Vessel for discovering the truth for us as well. In the books they have written, the Kabbalists inform us about the techniques based on mans personal experiences. From their all-encompassing point of view, they have found the way to help those who would follow, and then climb the same ladder as they did. Their method is called the wisdom of Kabbalah. Rav Michael Laitman

+ 204 10 Tips - High Vibrations

All your thoughts and feelings are energy, and energy is vibration. Learn to Raise those Vibrations and watch your life change dramatically.

1. Find something beautiful and appreciate it. Beauty is all around us, from the morning dew to the evening stars and everything in between. Most go through life not noticing all the beautiful things that are around them, and yes it's every where, so take the time to notice them, and appreciate them when you see it. Whether it's the scent of a flower or the way rain ripples in puddles of water, appreciate the beauty life has to offer.

2. Make a list of all that you are grateful for. Making a gratitude list shifts your vibrations from focusing on what you do not have to what is already abundant in your life. There is more to be grateful for than you could possibly imagine. You can start with “I'm Alive!” and expand from there. Gratitude is the Attitude.

3. Meditate. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and breath in and out. Too often we rush through our days with a scattered brain leaving us in a state of anxiety and stress, Meditation helps to calm your spirit down and put you in a peaceful state of mind. 10 Minuets of meditation a day can change your life forever.

4. Do something for someone else. Giving to someone else shifts your thinking from “I don't have enough, to I have more than enough to give to others.” Abundance is a high vibration.

5. Stop complaining and gossiping. Complaining and Gossip puts you in a very low vibration. Ask yourself “Are the things you are talking about bringing you more of what you want?” if not then, Stop complaining, and start finding ways to rejoice.

6. Move. Exercise. Get active. Vibration requires movement, the more you move the better your vibrations move. So Get Active! Dance! The happier you feel, the more you will draw happy experiences to yourself because you are operating at a different frequency.

7. Realize that you have more control over your life than you thought. You are not a victim to circumstance, past, family upbringing, trauma, or anything else. You can change your life in an instant. Just realize this. In many wisdom traditions this is called “total responsibility.” No one is responsible for how you feel right now but you. It isn't a curse. It's a blessing because it gives you your power back.

8. Breathe. Just sit and try to make your breath longer, fuller, and more relaxed. It has a direct affect on your nervous system and helps to calm you down. A calm vibration is a high vibration.

9. Do Something You're Afraid Of Fear holds us back from being in a state of love and happiness, and facing those fears opens you up to a greater world of possibilities. Fear of Heights? Go skydiving. Scared of public speaking, say a poem at an open mic. You'll begin to realize your fear was worse then the actual problem, and a sense of relief will wash over you.

10. Have a Meaningful Conversation with a Friend Rather than gossip or complaining, talk about you ideas. What do you have planned for yourself? what do you think is the nature of reality? Are we spiritual beings having a human experience? Talking about these things with someone helps to raise both your vibrations by thinking big. If you don't have someone to talk to about these kinds of things with, there's a community of higher minded individuals right here. Leave a comment down below and let's chat!

+ 142 The Prayerbook and the Villager

by Shai Agnon

Shai Agnon (winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature) told:

One time, a number of us—myself, Chaim Nachman Bialik, Eliezer Meir Lifshitz, Rabbi Simchah Asaf, Binyamin and others—entered the presence of the great Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Hacohen Kook and discussed the problems of the generation and how to rectify it.

One of the group made a speech in praise of the Torah, which ended by criticizing the many additional laws enacted by the rabbis in every generation. Rabbi Nachman rose in pain, and appeared angry. But he immediately overcame his anger, as was his holy way, and answered quietly: Hearing this has brought to mind a story.

There was once a great rabbi who happened to pass through a village. Night fell, and he had to stay there overnight. He asked the villager at whose house he was staying for a volume of the Talmud, but the villager didn’t have one. He asked for a mishnah—the villager didn’t have. He asked for an Ein Yaakov—the villager didn’t have that either.

Finally, he asked the villager, “Do you have a prayerbook?” The villager brought him an old prayerbook, which contained a commentary that the rabbi read the entire night, and which he enjoyed greatly.

The next day, the rabbi offered to pay a good price for the prayerbook, but the villager refused. The rabbi persisted: “I’ll trade it for a new prayerbook with a fine binding.” But the villager still refused.

“Why?” asked the rabbi.

The villager replied, “Rabbi, every morning when I get up I like to drink something hot, and I warm up the kettle. To make the fire catch quickly, I light a piece of paper and put it under the tinder. Since I don’t have much paper in the house, I rip a page out of the prayerbook and light that. And also, every time I want to smoke my pipe, I rip a page out of the prayerbook to light it.

“I am already an old man, but because there is so much commentary, I still haven’t come to the prayers. All the pages I’ve ripped out really aren’t the prayerbook.”

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 363-65


+ 114 Sustaining the World

by Avraham Shoar

In his youth, the writer, Avraham Shoar, was the chavruta (study partner) of Rav Kook in the beis medrash of Lutzin. He tells that young Avraham Yitzchak’s diligence was extraordinary. If a short amount of time passed without learning Torah, he felt real anguish: a actual physical pain:

One day (tells Avraham Shoar), he told me: “I have decided that two nights a week, we should learn mishmar (extended learning). Two nights a week, let us learn until dawn.”

I remember one such mishmar night, typical of the character of this extraordinary man. We were learning Chulin from the Talmud together. We were engaged in halachic dispute. I stood my ground, and we argued at length until we at last came to a shared understanding.

It was late. We were learning at the bimah. Around us was silence. In the adjoining dormitory, all the students were already asleep. Before us, burning above the holy ark, was the ner tamid—the eternal light. And we took a short rest from our toil and sat and conversed.

He said to me in a secretive voice: “Do you know, perhaps just the two of us are now sustaining the entire world. Perhaps the Holy One, blessed be He, is judging the world right now. And mankind’s sins are being considered, and they outweigh the good.

“Now the angel Michael, the one defender out of a thousand, picks up the words of our Torah learning and places them on the scale, and our words of Torah help outweigh the other side. If so, we have merited to sustain the entire world. And we are still just children. This is the first year that I am wearing tefillin, and as for you, you are not even bar mitzvah.”

As he spoke, I was lifted to the highest worlds. I could see, almost with my own eyes, the heavenly host: the fiery scale, the angels and cherubim. They were weighing the acts of humanity, and behold, they placed upon the scale the page of Chulin that we were learning, with the commentaries of Rashi, Tosafot and the Maharsha. And this page gave merit to the entire world.”

As I sat, submerged in my visions, Avraham Yitzchak’s voice continued. I heard him say with great simplicity: “A day will come when and I will be great in Torah. And then...” He touched me so that I would turn to him, and I saw his face burning, his eyes brilliant and sparkling like fiery coals set in milk. And he whispered: “I will go to the land of Israel, to the holy city of Jerusalem, and I will found a yeshiva there, like Kerem Beyavneh. And students from all over the world will gather there, and ‘from Jerusalem will come forth Torah.’”

These were the youthful dreams of Rav Kook.

These were his desires and yearnings when he had just become bar mitzvah.

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 4-5


+ 125 Enriching the Community of Israel

One way of learning Torah for its own sake is [to do so in order] to enrich the Community of Israel with great spiritual powers.

The more that the light of Torah increases, so that with one heart the people of Israel appreciate and respect it, the more that the fundamental power of our nation gains strength and firmness.

And the individual soul of the person who brings about this universal blessing itself grows and gains glory, gains completion and beauty, with a multitude of fresh branches. And it sends forth a multitude of powerful roots, through which it takes root amidst the roots of the Tree of true life. To the degree of its purity and might, this soul recognizes and feels the depth of the pleasantness of the good taste of a fulfilled life.

“Your palate is like good wine. It goes directly to my beloved. It causes the lips of the sleeping to murmur” (Shir Hashirim 7:10).

+ 89 God’s Law on mount Sinai. God's Law on mount Sinai Mankind on Earth is of the opinion that the word “impossible” applies to a lot of things. – We hold a different opinion, because the things we regard utopia to day, may be possible tomorrow. There are therefore practically no utopias. If one had told people 4,000 years ago about all the things you have today, one would have regarded all of this without exception as impossible. Utopias have become reality. Today’s generation’s fantasies are certainly realisable. This is why we absolutely cannot understand why one doubts our existence. Why can’t one comprehend that we travel beyond the speed of light? – Why does one doubt the possibility that dematerialisation exists? There is no utopia. Everything is possible, if one knows the way to realise it. It isn’t for instance utopia that we, respectively our forefathers, brought the LAW of HEAVEN down to Earth. The handing over of the LAW of HEAVEN took place on Mount Sinai. I have indicated details about this once before in the past. If the handing over of this important event didn’t take place conspicuously enough, then it is mainly due to the technological ignorance of the people at that time. What could they have known about spaceships travelling through space? – As far as Moses was concerned, the spaceship was “GOD’S ABODE” and the rest of the crew “HIS ANGELS”. The siren was the “divine trombone” and the ships antigravity was GOD’S promise to “put anyone to death” that crossed a certain line. All of this is so simple and so easy to understand if one is willing to use one’s mind. You have enough technical experience to correctly comprehend the LEGISLATION received on Mount Sinai. There is absolutely no room for doubt here, because any doubt would indicate mental derangement. He, who doesn’t comprehend this plausible LEGISLATION, also does not know how a car is steered and unaware of the energy that moves it. There is however also an evil will that prevents comprehension. Generally speaking, these people are not dumb; there are even some very famous authorities in politics and the sciences amongst them as well as people in the field of theology. This evil will is like a blinker for spiritual eyes. People do not want to know the TRUTH, because it perturbs them personally. Atheists doubt GOD’S COMMANDMENTS. They deem it impossible that GOD talked to a human being on Mount Sinai amidst thunder and lightning. God's Law on mount SinaiThe Israelites saw a fiery cloud moving in front of them. This pillar of fire hovered horizontally. This pillar of fire did not hover vertically as Jewish theology assumes. There is no mentioning of a vertical pillar anywhere. This pillar was one of our spaceships, that is to say, a mother-ship. Their aura of light can still be observed on all our flying objects by you. The material of the spaceships under our control consists of a glass-like mass that is harder than your normal glass. The colour is similar to a Nile-green. The bible describes its appearance as being similar to chrysolite. Antigravity is so powerful that the landing must take place on solid rock. Our spaceships of this size land on Mount Etna or similar mountain these days. So as not to suffer any injuries, the Israelites were advised to stay beyond a boundary, crossing this boundary could be life threatening. A siren of great sound intensity warned the people from crossing the indicated boundary. Moses could only cross this boundary after the gravitational force was switched off. He received an appropriate signal. There was neither thunder nor lightning, only the din of the spaceship and its alternating aura of light. When the antigravity field was switched on, the Israelites fled in all directions filled with fear and terror. Ashtar
