(Read Numbers 31 Part 1 First)

40 16,000 young girls, of whom 32 were the LORD's share.

41 Moses gave all the LORD's share to Eleazar the priest, just as the LORD had directed him.

42 The half of the plunder belonging to the people of Israel, which Moses had separated from the half belonging to the fighting men,

43 amounted to 337,500 sheep,

44 36,000 cattle,

45 30,500 donkeys,

46 and 16,000 young girls.

47 From the half-share given to the people, Moses took one of every fifty prisoners and animals and gave them to the Levites who maintained the LORD's Tabernacle. All this was done just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

48 Then all the military commanders came to Moses

49 and said, "Sir, we have accounted for all the men who went out to battle under our command; not one of us is missing!

50 So we are presenting the items of gold we captured as an offering to the LORD from our share of the plunder--armbands, bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces. This will make atonement for our lives before the LORD."

51 So Moses and Eleazar the priest received the gold from all the military commanders, all kinds of jewelry and crafted objects.

52 In all, the gold that the commanders presented as a gift to the LORD weighed about 420 pounds.*1

53 All the fighting men had taken some of the plunder for themselves.

54 So Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted the gifts from the military commanders and brought the gold to the Tabernacle* as a reminder to the LORD that the people of Israel belong to him.2
