After this manner you shall make daily offerings, during the seven days, as a gift-an offering of homage, for a smell of fragrance, to the Lord: Over and above the continual whole burnt offering, thou shalt offer it with its 25 libation.

And on the day of new things when you bring for the Lord the new sacrifice of the weeks, there shall be a solemn festival 27 for you. You shall not do any kind of sacrificial service; but you shall bring, as whole burnt offerings, for a smell of fragrance to the Lord, two young bulls from the herd, one ram, 28 seven lambs, of the first year, without blemish, with their sacrifice of fine flour mixed up with oil-three tenths for each bull, and two tenths for the ram, and one tenth for every of the se29 ven lambs; and one kid of the goats, for a sin offering, to make 30 atonement for you. Over and above the continual whole burnt 31 offering, you shall offer me the sacrifice of these (and see that

they be without blemish) together with the libations thereof. XXIX. And in the seventh month on the first day of the

month, there shall be a solemn festival for you. You shall do 2 no sacrificial work. It shall be to you a day of alarm. And 3 you shall offer as whole burnt offerings-for a smell of fragrance to the Lord, one young bull from the herd; one ram, seven lambs, of the first year, without blemish, with their sa4 crifice-fine flour mixed up with oil-three tenths for the

And on the fifteenth day of this seventh month, there shall be a solemn festival set apart for you. You shall do no sacrificial 13 work. And you shall celebrate this festival to the Lord seven days.

39 These you shall offer to the Lord at your festivals, over and above your vows, and your free will offerings, and your whole burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your libations, 40 and your offerings of thanksgiving. So Moses spoke to the children of Israel according to all that the Lord commanded him.

XXX. Moreover Moses spoke to the chiefs of the tribes of the 2 children of Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord

hath commanded. If any man vow a vow to the Lord, or swear an oath, or bind himself with a solemn promise concerning his soul, he shall not break his word. Whatever hath proceeded from his 3 mouth he shall do. And if a woman vow to the Lord, or bind 4 herself with a solemn promise, in her father's house, in her youth; and her father hear her vows, and her promises with which she hath bound her soul, and hold his peace at her; all her vows, and all the promises with which she bound her soul, 5 shall stand. They shall be binding on her. But if her father expressly disapprove on the day he heareth her vows and the promises, with which she hath bound her soul, they shall not stand. And the Lord will acquit her because her father hath 6 disallowed her. And if she be married, and vows be upon her; 7 according to the opening of her lips-with what promises soever she may have bound her soul, if her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her on the day when he heareth, so shall all her vows stand, and the promises shall stand with which 8 she hath bound her soul. But if her husband expressly disallow her on the day when he shall hear, none of her vows, and none of the obligations with which she hath bound her soul, shall be binding, because her husband disallowed her. And 9 the Lord will acquit her. But the vows of a widow, or of one divorced-whatever vows she may have made to bind her 10 soul, shall stand against her. And if her vow, or the obliga

tion with which she bound her soul with an oath, be made in 11 her husband's house; and her husband shall hear, and hold his peace at her, and not disallow her; all her vows and all her promises with which she hath bound her soul shall stand 12 against her. But if her husband on the day when he heareth, actually disannul all that may have proceeded out of her lips, of what nature soever her vows may be, or the obligations with which she bound her soul, they shall not be binding on her. Her husband hath made them void, and the Lord will 13 acquit her. Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict her 14 soul, her husband may establish, or make void. And if he hold

his peace at her, day after day, he shall establish upon her all her vows, and confirm the obligations upon her, because he held 15 his peace at her on the day he heard them. And if her hus

band disannul them after the day when he heard, he shall bear the sin of this.

These are the judgments which the Lord gave in charge to Moses, between a husband and wife, and between a father and a daughter in her youth, in her father's house.

XXXI. Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Avenge the 2 cause of the children of Israel on the Madianites, and after3 ward thou shalt be gathered to thy people. Whereupon Moses spoke to the people, saying, Arm men from among you and array them before the Lord, against Madian, to pour ven4 geance from the Lord on Madian-a thousand from every 5 tribe. You shall send them out of all the tribes to be drawn up in array. So out of the thousands of Israel they numbered a thousand from a tribe-twelve thousand. They were armed 6 for close engagement. And Moses sent these-a thousand from every tribe; and with the army composed of them, Phineas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, with the holy instruments-the trumpets for sounding a charge, in their hands. 7 And they drew up in array against Madian, as the Lord com8 manded Moses, and slew every male; and in the slaughter they

slew the kings of Madian, Evin, and Rokon, and Sur, and Ur, 9 and Robok, the five kings of Madian. They slew also Balaam, son of Beor, with the sword among their slain. And having taken for a prey the women of the Madianites, and their furniture, and their cattle, and all their goods, and spoiled their ar10 my, and burned all their cities in which they dwelt, and all their 11 sheepcots, with fire, and taken all the prey thereof, and all the 12 spoils thereof, both of man and beast, they brought to Moses, and Eleazar, and to all the Israelites, the captives, and the spoils, and the prey, to the camp at Araboth-Moab, on the Jor13 dan, over against Jericho. And when Moses went out, accom

panied with Eleazar the priest, and all the chiefs of the con14 gregation, to meet them without the camp, Moses was an15 gry at the officers of the army-at the captains of thousands,

and the captains of hundreds, who came from the war. And 16 Moses said to them, Why have you saved all the women alive? For they, by the direction of Balaam, were the cause of Israel's apostatizing, and transgressing the commands of the 17 Lord, for the sake of Phogor: and there was a plague in the
