In that appointed time YHWH said to me, sculpt for yourself two slabs of stone like the first ones, and go up to me unto the hill, and you will make for yourself a box of wood,

2 and~I~will~WRITE(Verb) (וְאֶכְתֹּב / wê'ekh'tov) UPON (עַל / al) the~SLAB~s (הַלֻּחֹת / ha'lu'hhot) AT (אֶת / et) the~WORD~s (הַדְּבָרִים / ha'de'va'rim) WHICH (אֲשֶׁר / a'sher) they~did~EXIST(Verb) (הָיוּ / hai'u) UPON (עַל / al) the~SLAB~s (הַלֻּחֹת / ha'lu'hhot) the~FIRST~s (הָרִאשֹׁנִים / ha'ri'sho'nim) WHICH (אֲשֶׁר / a'sher) you(ms)~did~CRACK(Verb) (שִׁבַּרְתָּ / shi'bar'ta) and~you(mp)~did~PLACE(Verb)~them(m) (וְשַׂמְתָּם / wê'sam'tam) in~the~BOX (בָּאָרוֹן / ba'a'ron)

3 and~I~will~DO(Verb) (וָאַעַשׂ / wa'a'as) BOX (אֲרוֹן / a'ron) TREE~s (עֲצֵי / a'tsey) ACACIA~s (שִׁטִּים / shi'tim) and~I~will~SCULPT(Verb) (וָאֶפְסֹל / wa'eph'sol) TWO (שְׁנֵי / shê'ney) SLAB~s (לֻחֹת / lu'hhot) STONE~s (אֲבָנִים / a'va'nim) like~FIRST~s (כָּרִאשֹׁנִים / ka'ri'sho'nim) and~I~will~make~GO.UP(Verb) (וָאַעַל / wa'a'al) the~HILL~unto (הָהָרָה / ha'ha'rah) and~TWO (וּשְׁנֵי / ush'ney) the~SLAB~s (הַלֻּחֹת / ha'lu'hhot) in~HAND~me (בְּיָדִי / bê'ya'di)

and I turned, and I went down from the hill, and I placed the slabs in the box which I made, and they existed there just as YHWH directed me,

6 and~SON~s (וּבְנֵי / uv'ney) Yisra'eyl (יִשְׂרָאֵל / yis'ra'eyl) they~did~JOURNEY(Verb) (נָסְעוּ / nas'u) from~WELL~s (מִבְּאֵרֹת / mi'be'ey'rot) B'ney-Ya'aqan (בְּנֵי יַעֲקָן / bê'ney ya'aqan) Moseyrah (מוֹסֵרָה / mo'sey'rah) THERE (שָׁם / sham) he~did~DIE(Verb) (מֵת / meyt) Aharon (אַהֲרֹן / a'ha'ron) and~he~will~be~BURY(Verb) (וַיִּקָּבֵר / wai'yi'qa'veyr) THERE (שָׁם / sham) and~he~will~much~ADORN(Verb) (וַיְכַהֵן / wa'ye'kha'heyn) Elazar (אֶלְעָזָר / el'a'zar) SON~him (בְּנוֹ / bê'no) UNDER~him (תַּחְתָּיו / tahh'taw)

and the sons of Yisra'eyl journeyed from the wells of B'ney-Ya'aqan to Moseyrah, there Aharon died, and he was buried there, and Elazar his son was adorned in place of him.

From there they journeyed to the Gudgodah, and from the Gudgodah to Yatvatah, a land of wadis of waters.

8 in~the~APPOINTED.TIME (בָּעֵת / ba'eyt) the~SHE (הַהִוא / ha'hi) he~did~make~SEPARATE(Verb) (הִבְדִּיל / hav'dil) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) AT (אֶת / et) STAFF (שֵׁבֶט / shey'vet) the~Lewi (הַלֵּוִי / ha'ley'wi) to~>~LIFT.UP(Verb) (לָשֵׂאת / la'seyt) AT (אֶת / et) BOX (אֲרוֹן / a'ron) COVENANT (בְּרִית / bê'rit) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) to~>~STAND(Verb) (לַעֲמֹד / la'a'mod) to~FACE~s (לִפְנֵי / liph'ney) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) to~>~much~MINISTER(Verb)~him (לְשָׁרְתוֹ / lê'shar'to) and~to~>~much~KNEEL(Verb) (וּלְבָרֵךְ / ul'va'reykh) in~TITLE~him (בִּשְׁמוֹ / bish'mo) UNTIL (עַד / ad) the~DAY (הַיּוֹם / hai'yom) the~THIS (הַזֶּה / ha'zeh)

In that appointed time YHWH separated the staff of Lewi, to lift up the box of the covenant of YHWH, to stand to the face of YHWH, to minister him, and to respect his title until this day.

9 UPON (עַל / al) SO (כֵּן / keyn) NOT (לֹא / lo) he~did~EXIST(Verb) (הָיָה / hai'yah) to~Lewi (לְלֵוִי / lê'ley'wi) DISTRIBUTION (חֵלֶק / hhey'leq) and~INHERITANCE (וְנַחֲלָה / wê'na'hha'lah) WITH (עִם / im) BROTHER~s~him (אֶחָיו / e'hhaw) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) HE (הוּא / hu) INHERITANCE~him (נַחֲלָתוֹ / na'hha'la'to) like~WHICH (כַּאֲשֶׁר / ka'a'sheyr) he~did~much~SPEAK(Verb) (דִּבֶּר / di'ber) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) Elohiym~you(ms) (אֱלֹהֶיךָ / e'lo'hey'kha) to~~him (לוֹ / lo)

Therefore, a distribution and inheritance with his brothers does not exist for Lewi, YHWH, he is his inheritance, just as YHWH your Elohiym spoke to him,

10 and~I (וְאָנֹכִי / wê'a'no'khi) I~did~STAND(Verb) (עָמַדְתִּי / a'mad'ti) in~the~HILL (בָהָר / va'har) like~the~DAY~s (כַּיָּמִים / ka'ya'mim) the~FIRST~s (הָרִאשֹׁנִים / ha'ri'sho'nim) FOUR~s (אַרְבָּעִים / ar'ba'im) DAY (יוֹם / yom) and~FOUR~s (וְאַרְבָּעִים / wê'ar'ba'im) NIGHT (לָיְלָה / lai'lah) and~he~will~HEAR(Verb) (וַיִּשְׁמַע / wai'yish'ma) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) TO~me (אֵלַי / ey'lai) ALSO (גַּם / gam) in~the~FOOTSTEP (בַּפַּעַם / ba'pa'am) the~SHE (הַהִוא / ha'hi) NOT (לֹא / lo) he~did~CONSENT(Verb) (אָבָה / a'vah) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) >~make~DAMAGE(Verb)~you(ms) (הַשְׁחִיתֶךָ / hash'hhi'te'kha)

and YHWH said to me, rise, walk to journey to the face of the people, and they will come and they will possess the land, which I swore to their fathers to give to them,

12 and~NOW (וְעַתָּה / wê'a'tah) Yisra'eyl (יִשְׂרָאֵל / yis'ra'eyl) WHAT (מָה / mah) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) Elohiym~you(ms) (אֱלֹהֶיךָ / e'lo'hey'kha) INQUIRE(Verb)~ing(ms) (שֹׁאֵל / sho'eyl) from~WITH~you(ms) (מֵעִמָּךְ / mey'i'makh) GIVEN.THAT (כִּי / ki) IF (אִם / im) to~>~FEAR(Verb) (לְיִרְאָה / lê'yir'ah) AT (אֶת / et) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) Elohiym~you(ms) (אֱלֹהֶיךָ / e'lo'hey'kha) to~>~WALK(Verb) (לָלֶכֶת / la'le'khet) in~ALL (בְּכָל / bê'khol) ROAD~s~him (דְּרָכָיו / dê'ra'khaw) and~to~>~LOVE(Verb) (וּלְאַהֲבָה / ul'a'ha'vah) AT~him (אֹתוֹ / o'to) and~to~>~SERVE(Verb) (וְלַעֲבֹד / wê'la'a'vod) AT (אֶת / et) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) Elohiym~you(ms) (אֱלֹהֶיךָ / e'lo'hey'kha) in~ALL (בְּכָל / bê'khol) HEART~you(ms) (לְבָבְךָ / lê'vav'kha) and~in~ALL (וּבְכָל / uv'khol) SOUL~you(ms) (נַפְשֶׁךָ / naph'she'kha)
