The Tabernacle of Witness and Blossomness - Numbers 17

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Numbers 17:1

Numbers 17:2  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. 

Numbers 17:3  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. 

Numbers 17:4 And thou shalt lay them up in the tabernacle  of the congregation before the testimony, where I will meet  with you. 

Numbers 17:5 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.  

Numbers 17:6 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. 

Numbers 17:7  And Moses laid up the rods before the LORD in the  tabernacle of witness. 

Numbers 17:8 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. 

Numbers 17:9 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.   

Numbers 17:10 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. 

Numbers 17:11 And Moses  did so: as the LORD commanded him, so did he. 

Numbers 17:12  And the children of Israel spake unto Moses, saying,  Behold, we die, we perish, we all perish. 

Numbers 17:13  Whosoever cometh any thing near unto the tabernacle of the  LORD shall die: shall we be consumed with dying?  KJV
