Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:1 - And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying:

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:2 - “Speak to the children of Israel, and get from them a rod from each father’s house, all their leaders according to their fathers’ houses—twelve rods. Write each man’s name on his rod.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:3 - “And you shall write Aaron’s name on the rod of Levi. For there shall be one rod for the head of each father’s house.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:4 - “Then you shall place them in the tabernacle of meeting before the Testimony, where I meet with you.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:5 - “And it shall be that the rod of the man whom I choose will blossom; thus I will rid Myself of the complaints of the children of Israel, which they make against you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:6 - So Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and each of their leaders gave him a rod apiece, for each leader according to their fathers’ houses, twelve rods; and the rod of Aaron was among their rods.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:8 - Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses went into the tabernacle of witness, and behold, the rod of Aaron, of the house of Levi, had sprouted and put forth buds, had produced blossoms and yielded ripe almonds.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 17:10 - And the LORD said to Moses, “Bring Aaron’s rod back before the Testimony, to be kept as a sign against the rebels, that you may put their complaints away from Me, lest they die.”
