Numbers 31:1-54, NLT
Conquest of the Midianites
1Then the Lord said to Moses,
3So Moses said to the people, “Choose some men, and arm them to fight the Lord’s war of revenge against Midian.
9Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder.
15“Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.
21Then Eleazar the priest said to the men who were in the battle, “The Lord has given Moses this legal requirement:
Division of the Plunder
25And the Lord said to Moses,
32The plunder remaining from everything the fighting men had taken totaled 675,000 sheep and goats,
36Half of the plunder was given to the fighting men. It totaled 337,500 sheep and goats,
42Half of the plunder belonged to the people of Israel, and Moses separated it from the half belonging to the fighting men.
48Then all the generals and captains came to Moses
51So Moses and Eleazar the priest received the gold from all the military commanders—all kinds of jewelry and crafted objects.
