1 And He brought out from him a kind man, who found favour in the sight of all flesh,
Even Mosheh, beloved of Elohim and men, whose remembrance is baruḵ.
2 He made him like the esteemed qodeshim,
And exalted him, so that his enemies stood in fear of him.
3 By his words He caused the wonders to cease,
And He made him esteemed in the sight of sovereigns,
And gave him a Command for His people,
And showed him part of His esteem.
4 He qadosh him in his trustworthiness and humility,
And chose him out of all men.
5 He caused him to hear His voice, and brought him into the thick cloud,
And gave him Commands before His face,
Even the Law of Ḥai and knowledge,
That he might teach Ya’aqoḇ His Covenant,
And Yisra’ĕl his Right-Rulings.
6 He exalted Aharon, a qodesh man like him,
Even his brother, of the tribe of Lĕwi.
7 He made an everlasting Covenant with him,
And gave him the kehunnah among the people;
He adorned him with comely ornaments,
And clothed him with a robe of esteem.
8 He put upon him perfect esteem;
And strengthened him with splendid garments,
With linen trousers, with a long robe, and the shoulder garment.
9 And He surrounded it with pomegranates,
And with many golden bells all around,
So that as he walked there would be a sound,
And a noise made that would be heard in the Hĕyḵal,
For a remembrance to the children of His people;
10 With a qodesh garment of gold and blue silk and purple,
The work of embroidery with a breastplate of Right-Ruling,
And with Urim and Tummim;
11 With woven scarlet, the work of the skilled workman,
With precious stones engraved like seals, and mounted in gold,
The work of the engraver with writing engraved for a remembrance,
After the number of the tribes of Yisra’ĕl.
12 He placed a crown of gold upon the turban, in which was engraved QODESHAH,
An ornament of esteem, a precious work,
The desire of the eyes, elegant and lovely.
13 Before him there were none like them,
Nor did any stranger ever put them on,
But only his children and his children’s children for all time.
14 Their offerings shall be completely consumed twice every day continually.
15 Mosheh ordained him, and anointed him with qodesh oil:
This was appointed to him with an everlasting Covenant,
And to his seed, so long as the shamayim should remain,
That they should serve Him, and execute the office of the kehunnah,
And baraḵ the people in His Name.
16 He chose him out of all men living to offer slaughterings to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
Incense, and a sweet savour, for a remembrance,
To make atonement for His people.
17 He gave him His Commands, and authority in the Laws of Right-Rulings,
That he should teach Ya’aqoḇ the Witnesses,
And instruct Yisra’ĕl in His Torot.
18 Foreigners conspired together against him,
And scorned him in the wilderness,
Even the men that were on the side of Dathan and Aḇiram,
And the assembly of Qoraḥ, with rage and wrath.
19 This 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 saw, and it displeased Him,
And in His wrathful displeasure they were consumed;
He did wonders upon them, to consume them with the fiery flame.
20 But he made Aharon more esteemed,
And gave him an inheritance, and divided to him the first-fruits of the increase;
Most of all He prepared bread in abundance;
21 For they eat of the offerings of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
Which He gave to him and his seed.
22 However in the land of the people he had no inheritance,
Nor had he any portion among the people;
For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Himself is his portion and inheritance.
23 The third in esteem is Pineḥas the son of Eli’ezer,
Because he had ardour in the reverence of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And stood up with good courage of heart when the people were turned back,
And made atonement for Yisra’ĕl.
24 Therefore there was a Covenant of peace made with him,
That he should be the chief of the Miqdash and of His people,
And that he and his descendants should have the height of the kehunnah forever;
25 According to the Covenant made with Dawiḏ son of Yishai, of the tribe of Yahuḏah,
That the inheritance of the sovereign should be to his descendants alone;
So the inheritance of Aharon should also be to his seed.
26 Elohim give you wisdom in your heart to rightly-rule His people in righteousness,
That their good is not abolished, and that their esteem may endure forever.
