004:017:001
And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,


004:017:002
Speak unto the children of Israel,
and take of every one of them a rod according to the house of their fathers,
of all their princes according to the house of their fathers twelve rods:
write thou every man's name upon his rod.


004:017:003
And thou shalt write Aaron's name upon the rod of Levi:
for one rod shall be for the head of the house of their fathers.


004:017:004
And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle of the congregation before the testimony,
where I will meet with you.


004:017:005
And it shall come to pass,
that the man's rod,
whom I shall choose,
shall blossom:
and I will make to cease from me the murmurings of the children of Israel,
whereby they murmur against you.


004:017:006
And Moses spake unto the children of Israel,
and every one of their princes gave him a rod apiece,
for each prince one,
according to their fathers' houses,
even twelve rods:
and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.


004:017:007
And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the tabernacle of witness.


004:017:008
And it came to pass,
that on the morrow Moses went into the tabernacle of witness;
and,
behold,
the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi was budded,
and brought forth buds,
and bloomed blossoms,
and yielded almonds.


004:017:009
And Moses brought out all the rods from before the LORD unto all the children of Israel:
and they looked,
and took every man his rod.


004:017:010
And the LORD said unto Moses,
Bring Aaron's rod again before the testimony,
to be kept for a token against the rebels;
and thou shalt quite take away their murmurings from me,
that they die not.


004:017:011
And Moses did so:
as the LORD commanded him,
so did he.


004:017:012
And the children of Israel spake unto Moses,
saying,
Behold,
we die,
we perish,
we all perish.


004:017:013
Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the LORD shall die:
shall we be consumed with dying?
