耶和华对摩西说,
The Lord said to Moses,

你晓谕以色列人,从他们手下取杖,每支派一根。从他们所有的首领,按着支派,共取十二根。你要将各人的名字写在各人的杖上,
Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff.

The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites."
