8 and~TO (וְאֶל / wê'el) SON~s (בְּנֵי / bê'ney) Yisra'eyl (יִשְׂרָאֵל / yis'ra'eyl) you(ms)~will~much~SPEAK(Verb) (תְּדַבֵּר / tê'da'beyr) to~>~SAY(Verb) (לֵאמֹר / ley'mor) MAN (אִישׁ / ish) GIVEN.THAT (כִּי / ki) he~will~DIE(Verb) (יָמוּת / ya'mut) and~SON (וּבֵן / u'veyn) WITHOUT (אֵין / eyn) to~~him (לוֹ / lo) and~you(mp)~did~make~CROSS.OVER(Verb) (וְהַעֲבַרְתֶּם / wê'ha'a'var'tem) AT (אֶת / et) INHERITANCE~him (נַחֲלָתוֹ / na'hha'la'to) to~DAUGHTER~him (לְבִתּוֹ / lê'vi'to)

and if his father is without brothers, then you will give his inheritance to his kin, the one near to him from his clan, and he will possess her, and she will exist for the sons of Yisra'eyl for a custom of decision, just as YHWH directed Mosheh,

12 and~he~will~SAY(Verb) (וַיֹּאמֶר / wai'yo'mer) YHWH (יְהוָה / YHWH) TO (אֶל / el) Mosheh (מֹשֶׁה / mo'sheh) !(ms)~GO.UP(Verb) (עֲלֵה / a'leyh) TO (אֶל / el) HILL (הַר / har) the~Ever~s (הָעֲבָרִים / ha'a'va'rim) [891] the~THIS (הַזֶּה / ha'zeh) and~!(ms)~SEE(Verb) (וּרְאֵה / ur'eyh) AT (אֶת / et) the~LAND (הָאָרֶץ / ha'a'rets) WHICH (אֲשֶׁר / a'sher) I~did~GIVE(Verb) (נָתַתִּי / na'ta'ti) to~SON~s (לִבְנֵי / liv'ney) Yisra'eyl (יִשְׂרָאֵל / yis'ra'eyl)
