Numbers 15-16 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
15 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 “Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them: ‘When ye have come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,
3 and will make an offering by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savor unto the Lord of the herd or of the flock,
4 then shall he that offereth his offering unto the Lord bring a meat offering of a tenth part of flour mingled with a fourth part of a hin of oil.
5 And a fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.
6 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two tenths part of flour mingled with a third part of a hin of oil.
7 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer a third part of a hin of wine for a sweet savor unto the Lord.
8 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the Lord,
9 then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenths part of flour mingled with half a hin of oil.
10 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half a hin of wine for an offering made by fire of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
11 “‘Thus shall it be done for one bullock or for one ram or for a lamb or a kid.
12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number.
13 All who are born of the country shall do these things in this manner in offering an offering made by fire of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
14 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire of a sweet savor unto the Lord, as ye do, so he shall do.
15 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation and also for the stranger who sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations. As ye are, so shall the stranger be before the Lord:
16 one law and one manner shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourneth with you.’”
17 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
18 “Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them: ‘When ye come into the land whither I bring you,
19 then it shall be that, when ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up a heave offering unto the Lord.
20 Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for a heave offering; as ye do the heave offering of the threshing floor, so shall ye heave it.
21 Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the Lord a heave offering in your generations.
22 And if ye have erred and not observed all these commandments which the Lord hath spoken unto Moses—
23 even all that the Lord hath commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the Lord commanded Moses and henceforward among your generations—
24 then it shall be, if aught be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering for a sweet savor unto the Lord with his meat offering and his drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering.
25 And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it is ignorance; and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the Lord, and their sin offering before the Lord, for their ignorance.
26 And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel and the stranger who sojourneth among them, seeing all the people were in ignorance.
27 “‘And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a shegoat of the first year for a sin offering.
28 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul who sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the Lord, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.
29 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel and for the stranger who sojourneth among them.
30 But the soul who doeth aught presumptuously, whether he be born in the land or a stranger, the same reproacheth the Lord; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
31 Because he hath despised the word of the Lord and hath broken His commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off. His iniquity shall be upon him.’”
32 And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man who gathered sticks upon the Sabbath day.
33 And those who found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron and unto all the congregation.
34 And they put him under guard, because it was not declared what should be done to him.
35 And the Lord said unto Moses, “The man shall be surely put to death. All the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.”
36 And all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him with stones, and he died, as the Lord commanded Moses.
37 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
38 “Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribbon of blue.
39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring,
40 that ye may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy unto your God.
41 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God: I am the Lord your God.”
16 Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men;
2 and they rose up before Moses with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown.
3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, “Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them. Why then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the Lord?”
4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face;
5 and he spoke unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, “Even tomorrow the Lord will show who are His and who is holy, and will cause him to come near unto Him. Even him whom He hath chosen will He cause to come near unto Him.
6 This do: Take you censers, Korah and all his company,
7 and put fire therein and put incense in them before the Lord tomorrow. And it shall be that the man whom the Lord doth choose, he shall be holy. Ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.”
8 And Moses said unto Korah, “Hear, I pray you, ye sons of Levi:
9 Seemeth it but a small thing unto you that the God of Israel hath separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister unto them?
10 And He hath brought thee near to Him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee. And seek ye the priesthood also?
11 For this cause both thou and all thy company are gathered together against the Lord. And what is Aaron, that ye murmur against him?”
12 And Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, who said, “We will not come up.
13 Is it a small thing that thou hast brought us up out of a land that floweth with milk and honey to kill us in the wilderness, unless thou make thyself altogether a prince over us?
14 Moreover thou hast not brought us into a land that floweth with milk and honey, or given us inheritance of fields and vineyards. Wilt thou put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up!”
15 And Moses was very wroth, and said unto the Lord, “Respect not Thou their offering. I have not taken one ass from them, neither have I hurt one of them.”
16 And Moses said unto Korah, “Be thou and all thy company before the Lord, thou and they and Aaron, tomorrow.
17 And take every man his censer and put incense in them, and bring ye before the Lord every man his censer, two hundred and fifty censers, thou also and Aaron, each of you his censer.”
18 And they took every man his censer and put fire in them and laid incense thereon, and stood in the door of the tabernacle of the congregation with Moses and Aaron.
19 And Korah gathered all the congregation against them unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation; and the glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation.
20 And the Lord spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
21 “Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them in a moment.”
22 And they fell upon their faces, and said, “O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt Thou be wroth with all the congregation?”
23 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
24 “Speak unto the congregation, saying, ‘Get you up from about the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.’”
25 And Moses rose up and went unto Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him.
26 And he spoke unto the congregation, saying, “Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.”
27 So they got up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram on every side; and Dathan and Abiram came out and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives and their sons and their little children.
28 And Moses said, “Hereby ye shall know that the Lord hath sent me to do all these works, for I have not done them of mine own mind.
29 If these men die the common death of all men, or if they be visited according to the visitation of all men, then the Lord hath not sent me.
30 But if the Lord make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth and swallow them up with all that appertain unto them, and they go down alive into the pit, then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the Lord.”
31 And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground cleaved asunder that was under them;
32 and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up, and their houses and all the men who appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
33 They and all that appertained to them went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them; and they perished from among the congregation.
34 And all Israel who were round about them fled at the cry of them, for they said, “Lest the earth swallow us up also!”
35 And there came out a fire from the Lord, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who offered incense.
36 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
37 “Speak unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, that he take up the censers out of the burning, and scatter thou the fire yonder, for they are hallowed.
38 The censers of these sinners against their own souls, let them make them into broad plates for a covering of the altar; for they offered them before the Lord. Therefore they are hallowed, and they shall be a sign unto the children of Israel.”
39 And Eleazar the priest took the brazen censers, wherewith those who were burned had offered, and they were made broad plates for a covering of the altar
40 to be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, who is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the Lord; that he be not as Korah and as his company, as the Lord said to him by the hand of Moses.
41 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, “Ye have killed the people of the Lord.”
42 And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron, that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation; and behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared.
43 And Moses and Aaron came before the tabernacle of the congregation.
44 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
45 “Get you up from among this congregation, that I may consume them as in a moment.” And they fell upon their faces.
46 And Moses said unto Aaron, “Take a censer and put fire therein from the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation and make an atonement for them. For there has wrath gone out from the Lord; the plague has begun.”
47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and behold, the plague had begun among the people. And he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people.
48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.
49 Now those who died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, besides those who died in the matter of Korah.
50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the plague was stayed.
Mark 6:1-29 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 And He went out from thence and came into His own country, and His disciples followed Him.
2 And when the Sabbath day had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “From whence hath this man these things? And what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James and Joses, and of Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they were offended at Him.
4 But Jesus said unto them, “A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.”
5 And He could do no mighty works there, except that He laid His hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. And He went round about the villages teaching.
7 And He called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits,
8 and commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only — no wallet, no bread, and no money in their purse,
9 but be shod with sandals, and not put on two coats.
10 And He said unto them, “In whatever place ye enter into a house, there abide until ye depart from that place.
11 And whosoever shall not receive you nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment than for that city.”
12 And they went out and preached that men should repent.
13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.
14 And King Herod heard of Him, for His name was spread abroad. And he said, “John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and therefore these mighty works show forth themselves in him.”
15 Others said, “It is Elijah,” and others said, “It is a prophet, or like one of the prophets.”
16 But when Herod heard of it, he said, “It is John, whom I beheaded; he is risen from the dead.”
17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and had bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife; for he had married her.
18 For John had said unto Herod, “It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.”
19 Therefore Herodias had an inward grudge against him and would have killed him, but she could not;
20 for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and holy, and kept him safe. And when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.
21 And when a convenient day had come, when Herod on his birthday gave a supper for his lords, high officers, and chief officials of Galilee,
22 and when the daughter of the said Herodias came in and danced, and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, “Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it to thee.”
23 And he swore unto her, “Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it to thee, unto the half of my kingdom.”
24 And she went forth and said unto her mother, “What shall I ask?” And Herodias said, “The head of John the Baptist.”
25 And she came back straightway with haste unto the king and asked, saying, “I will that thou give me at once on a charger the head of John the Baptist.”
26 And the king was exceedingly sorry, yet for his oath’s sake and for their sakes who sat with him, he would not reject her.
27 And immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded John’s head to be brought. And he went and beheaded him in prison,
28 and brought his head on a charger and gave it to the damsel; and the damsel gave it to her mother.
29 And when John’s disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse and laid it in a tomb.
