him the priest of the Most High Elohim (430), him and his sons for ever; and he awoke from his sleep and
:And Ya'aqov (3290) rose early in the morning, on the fourteenth of this month, and he
gave a tithe of all that came with him, both of men and cattle, both of gold and every vessel and
yea, he gave tithes of all.
:And in those days Rachel (7354) became pregnant with her son
Bin'yamin (1144). And Ya'aqov (3290) counted his sons from him upwards and Levi (3878) fell to the portion of Y'hovah (3068),
father clothed him in the garments of the priesthood and filled his hands.
:And on the
fifteenth of this month, he brought to the altar fourteen oxen from amongst the cattle, and
twenty-eight rams, and forty-nine sheep, and seven lambs, and twenty-one kids of the goats as a
burnt-offering on the
altar of sacrifice, well pleasing for a sweet savour before Elohim (430).
:This was his offering, in
consequence of the vow which he had vowed that he would give a tenth, with their fruit-offerings
and their drink-
:And when the fire had consumed it, he burnt incense on the fire over the fire,
and for a thank-offering two oxen and four rams and four sheep, four he-goats, and two sheep of
a year old,
and two kids of the goats; and thus he did daily for seven days.
:And he and all his sons
and his men were eating (this) with joy there during seven days and blessing and thanking the
had delivered him out of all his tribulation and had given him his vow.
:And he tithed all
the clean animals, and made a burnt sacrifice, but the unclean animals he gave (not) to Levi (3878) his
son, and he
gave him all the souls of the men.
:And Levi (3878) discharged the priestly office at Beyt El (1008) before
Ya'aqov (3290) his father in preference to his ten brothers, and he was a priest there, and Ya'aqov (3290) gave his
he tithed again the tithe to Y'hovah (3068) and sanctified it, and it became holy unto Him.
:And for this reason it is ordained on the heavenly tablets as a law for the tithing again the tithe to
eat before Y'hovah (3068) from year to year, in the place where it is chosen that His name should dwell,
and to this law
there is no limit of days for ever.
:This ordinance is written that it may be fulfilled from
year to year in eating the second tithe before Y'hovah (3068) in the place where it has been chosen, and
shall remain over from it from this year to the year following.
:For in its year shall the
seed be eaten till the days of the gathering of the seed of the year, and the wine till the days of the
and the oil till the days of its season.
:And all that is left thereof and becomes old, let it
as polluted: let it be burnt with fire, for it is unclean.
:And thus let them eat it together
sanctuary, and let them not suffer it to become old.
:And all the tithes of the oxen and
sheep shall be holy unto Y'hovah (3068), and shall belong to his priests, which they will eat before Him
from year to
year; for thus is it ordained and engraven regarding the tithe on the heavenly tablets.
:And on the following night, on the twenty-second day of this month, Ya'aqov (3290) resolved to build that
place, and to surround the court with a wall, and to sanctify it and make it holy for ever, for
himself and his children
:And Y'hovah (3068) appeared to him by night and blessed him and said unto him:
shall not be called Ya'aqov (3290), but Yis'ra'el (3478) shall they name thy name.'
:And He said unto him
again: 'I am Y'hovah (3068) who created the heaven and the earth, and I will increase thee and multiply
thee exceedingly, and kings shall come forth from thee, and they shall judge everywhere wherever
of the sons of men has trodden.
:And I will give to thy seed all the earth which is under
heaven, and they shall judge all the nations according to their desires, and after that they shall get
of the whole earth and inherit it for ever.'
:And He finished speaking with him, and He
from him. and Ya'aqov (3290) looked till He had ascended into heaven.
:And he saw in a vision
of the night, and behold an angel descended from heaven with seven tablets in his hands, and he
gave them to Ya'aqov (3290), and he read them and knew all that was written therein which would befall
him and his sons
throughout all the ages.
:And he showed him all that was written on the tablets, and
said unto him: 'Do not build this place, and do not make it an eternal sanctuary, and do not dwell
here; for this is not the place. Go to the house of Av'raham (85) thy father and dwell with Yits'chaq (3327) thy
father until the day
of the death of thy father.
:For in Mits'rayim (4714) thou shalt die in peace, and in this land thou
shalt be buried
with honour in the sepulchre of thy fathers, with Av'raham (85) and Yits'chaq (3327).
:Fear not, for as
thou hast seen and read it, thus shall it all be; and do thou write down everything as thou hast seen
:And Ya'aqov (3290) said: 'Lord, how can I remember all that I have read and seen? 'And he said
him: 'I will bring all things to thy remembrance.'
:And he went up from him, and he
awoke from his sleep, and he remembered everything which he had read and seen, and he wrote
down all the
words which he had read and seen.
:And he celebrated there yet another day, and he
sacrificed thereon according to all that he sacrificed on the former days, and called its name
this day was added and the former days he called 'The Feast '.
:And thus it was
manifested that it should be, and it is written on the heavenly tablets: wherefore it was revealed to
him that he should
celebrate it, and add it to the seven days of the feast.
:And its name was called
'Addition,' because that it was recorded amongst the days of the feast days, according to the
the days of the year.
:And in the night, on the twenty-third of this month, D'vorah (1683)
Riv'qah (7259)'s nurse died, and they buried her beneath the city under the oak of the river, and he called
the name of this
place, 'The river of D'vorah (1683),' and the oak, 'The oak of the mourning of D'vorah (1683).'
Riv'qah (7259) went and returned to her house to his father Yits'chaq (3327), and Ya'aqov (3290) sent by her hand rams and
he-goats that she should prepare a meal for his father such as he desired.
:And he went
mother till he came to the land of Kabratan, and he dwelt there.
:And Rachel (7354) bare a son
in the night, and called his name 'Son of my sorrow '; for she suffered in giving him birth: but his
father called his name Bin'yamin (1144), on the eleventh of the eighth month in the first of the sixth week
jubilee. [2143 A.M.]
:And Rachel (7354) died there and she was buried in the land of Eph'rat (672),
