פָּרָשַׁת נָשֹׂא | Parashat Naso (Numbers 4:21-7:89), color-coded according to its narrative layers

According to the poetry of the Midrash Tanḥuma, Bereshit 1:1, the words of the Torah were inscribed “black fire on white fire.” For many years, I’ve wanted to look deeply into the black fire and visualize the full spectrum of the Torah’s sources, hidden within the black fire but revealed through a critical analysis of its layers of redaction. Below, I’ve set the text of the first Torah portion in the annual Torah reading cycle, using color-coding to distinguish the stratigraphic layers forming the composition of the Masoretic text according to the Supplementary Hypothesis presented by Tsemaḥ Yoreh in his Kernel to Canon series of books (2013-2017) and his website, the Sources of Biblical Narrative. As Dr. Yoreh explains,

The Supplementary Hypothesis asserts that the Pentateuch was composed by several different writers. This reflects an overwhelming academic consensus on Biblical authorship, even among scholars who do not subscribe to the Supplementary Hypothesis in particular.[….] According to the Supplementary Hypothesis, Biblical narrative is layered. No editor took a blowtorch to the parts of the Bible he disagreed with and destroyed them; if he had, we would not find these repetitions and contradictions. Instead, Biblical narrative began with a coherent, foundational bedrock, which over time accreted more and more storylines. Unlike geological processes, though, this process of addition was deliberate. What happened if one author disagreed with his predecessor’s storyline or worldview? He did not simply take an axe to the narrative; instead, he attempted to bury his predecessor’s point of view by repeating his own over and over again, thus skewing our understanding of the story in new ways. Every generation of readers sees the world differently, and thus every generation of writers seeks to adapt their predecessors’ cultural heritage to their own situation. We are not meant simply to dismiss earlier stories; rather, the intention of later writers is to transform our understanding of those stories via their additions.

Legend

⬛ The kernel of biblical text upon which all other narratives were laid is thought to have been composed in the mid- to late eighth century BCE toward the end of the heyday of the northern Kingdom of Ephraim (one of the two kingdoms that occupied Biblical Israel). This layer, commonly referred to as ‘E’, is indicated with INDIGO text. The first parashah containing text of this layer was parashat Vayera in Sefer Bereshit.

⬛ The next oldest layer is thought to have been composed in the late 8th or early 7th century BCE in the southern Kingdom of Judah. This layer, commonly known as ‘J’, is indicated with a BLUE text.

⬛ This strata, thought to have been composed during the exilic to early post-exilic period (571–486 BCE) is, as Dr. Yoreh explains, “responsible for supplementing the ‘J’ narrative with dates, names, and numbers, thus ‘ordering’ and authenticating ‘J’s account.” This layer, commonly referred to as ‘P’ (for ‘Priestly’) appears here in GREEN text.

⬛ The next strata popularized Kohanite law for the remnant of Judah after the Temple was destroyed, and functioned as an intermediary between Kohanite lists and laws and the surrounding narrative. This layer, which Dr. Yoreh calls ‘H’ (for the ‘Holiness Code’) appears here in LIME-GREEN text.

⬛ The most recent layer of text, is a post-exilic (pre-3rd century BCE) text that Dr. Yoreh refers to as the “Bridger” which supplements earlier strata with genealogies and popular myths, providing narrative bridges between distant story cycles. This ‘B’ layer is presented here in FUCHSIA.

The kernel of biblical text ‘E and’ its early supplemental layer ‘J’, are absent from this parashah.

Parashat Naso (Numbers 4:21-7:89) in the annual Torah reading cycle begins Sefer Bamidbar. It is preceded by parashat b’Midbar (Numbers 1:1–4:20). Parashat b’Ha’alotekha (Numbers 8:1-12:16) follows it.

21 YHVH spoke to Mosheh, saying: 22 “Take up the head-count of the Sons of Gershon, they too, by their Fathers’ House, by their clans, 23 from the age of thirty years and upward; to the age of fifty years you are to count them, all who enter to join-forces with the working-force, to serve the serving-tasks in the Ohel Mo’ed. 24 This is the serving-task of the Gershuni clans, for the service-of-packing and for carrying: 25 they are to carry the curtains of the Mishkan, and the Ohel Mo’ed, its covering, the covering of faience beaded-leather that is over it, on top, and the screen for the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed, 26 the hangings of the courtyard and the screen for the entrance to the gate of the courtyard that is over the Mishkan and over the Mizbe’aḥ, all around, as well as their cords, and all their serving implements; whatever is to be done with regard to them, they are to do-the-serving-task. 27 By order of Aharon and his sons shall it be (done): all the serving-tasks of the Sons of the Gershuni, including all their carrying-chores, including all their service. You are to make them accountable for discharging all their carrying-chores. 28 This is the serving-task of the clans of the Sons of the Gershuni at the Ohel Mo’ed and their charge under the hand of Itamar son of Aharon the kohen.”

29 “The Sons of Merari: by their clans, by their Fathers’ House you are to count them, 30 from the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years you are to count them, every one that may enter the working-force, to serve the serving-tasks of the Ohel Mo’ed. 31 This is their charge of carrying, including all their service-of-packing in the Ohel Mo’ed: the boards of the Mishkan, its bars, its columns and its sockets; 32 the columns of the courtyard, all around, their sockets, their pegs and their cords-including all their implements, including all their serving-tasks; by name you are to account for the implements of their carrying duties. 33 That is the service-of-packing of the clans of the Sons of Merari, including all their serving-tasks in the Ohel Mo’ed under the hand of Itamar son of Aharon the kohen.”

34 So Mosheh, Aharon and the leaders of the community counted all the Sons of Kehat, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House, 35 from the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years, everyone that entered the working-force, for the serving-tasks in the Ohel Mo’ed. 36 Now those counted of them were, by their clans: two thousand, seven hundred and fifty.37 These are the accountings of the Kehati clans, everyone that was serving in the Ohel Mo’ed, whom Mosheh and Aharon counted by order of YHVH, by the hand of Mosheh.

38 Now those counted of the Sons of Gershon, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House, 39 from the age of thirty and upward until the age of fifty years, everyone who entered the work-force, for the serving-tasks in the Ohel Mo’ed: 40 those counted of them were, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House: two thousand, six hundred and thirty. 41 These are the accountings of the clans of the Sons of Gershon, everyone that did-service in the Ohel Mo’ed, whom Mosheh and Aharon counted by order of YHVH.

42 And those counted of the Sons of Merari, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House, 43 from the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years, everyone who entered the working-force, for serving-tasks in the Ohel Mo’ed: 44 those counted of them were, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House: three thousand and two hundred. 45 These are the accountings of the clans of the Sons of Merari, whom Mosheh and Aharon counted by order of YHVH, by the hand of Mosheh.

46 All those whom Mosheh counted, and Aharon and all the leaders of Yisrael (counted), the Levi’im, by their clans, by their Fathers’ House, 47 from the age of thirty years and upward until the age of fifty years, everyone that entered to serve the serving-tasks of the service-of-packing and the serving-tasks of carrying, in the Ohel Mo’ed, 48 those of them counted were: eight thousand, five hundred and eighty. 49 By order of YHVH they were counted, by the hand of Mosheh, each-man, each-man according to his service-of-packing and to his carrying-tasks, (with) his accountability, as YHVH had commanded Mosheh.

5 1 YHVH spoke to Mosheh, saying: 2 “Command the Children of Yisrael, that they may send-away from the camp anyone (with) tsara’at, anyone (with) a flow, and anyone tamei by a (dead) person. 3 Male and female (alike), you are to send-him-away, outside the camp you are to send-them-away, so that they do not make their camp tamei in which I keep-a-dwelling in their midst.” 4 Thus did the Children of Yisrael, sending-them-away outside the camp, as YHVH had spoken to Mosheh, thus did the Children of Yisrael.

5 YHVH spoke to Mosheh, saying: 6 “Speak to the Children of Yisrael: A man or a woman — when they do any sin (committed by) humans by breaking-faith, yes, faith with YHVH, and that person realizes his guilt: 7 they are to confess their sin that they have done, and (each one) is to make-restitution for one’s guilt in its capital-amount, adding its fifth to it, and is to give it to the one toward whom one incurred-guilt. 8 Now if the man has no redeemer, to make-restitution of guilt-payment to him, the guilt-payment is to be restored to YHVH, (it is) the kohen’s, besides the ram of atonement with which atonement is effected for him. 9 And any contribution, including any of the holy-offerings of the Children of Yisrael that they bring-near for the kohen, shall be his. 10 So every-man, his holy-offerings shall be his, every-man, what he gives to the kohen, shall be his.”

11 YHVH spoke to Mosheh, saying: 12 “Speak to the Children of Yisrael and say to them: ‘Any-man, any-man whose wife goes-astray, breaking-faith, yes, faith with him, 13 in that a man lay with her, (with) an emission of seed, and it was hidden from the eyes of her husband, — she concealed herself, since she had made-herself-tamei — and since there was no witness against her, she was not apprehended — 14 and the rush of jealousy comes over him, and he is jealous toward his wife, she having made-herself-tamei; or the rush of jealousy comes over him and he is jealous toward his wife, though she did not make-herself-tamei — 15 the man is to bring his wife to the kohen. He is to bring a near-offering for her: a tenth of an efa of barley meal; there is not to be poured on it any oil, there is not to be put on it any frankincense, for it is a grain-gift of jealousy, grain-gift of reminding that reminds of iniquity.'”

16 “The kohen is to bring-her-near and have-her-stand before the presence of YHVH; 17 then the kohen is to take holy water in an earthenware vessel, and from the dirt that will be on the floor of the Mishkan the kohen is to take (some) and place (it) in the water. 18 When the kohen has had the woman stand before the presence of YHVH, he is to loosen (the hair of) the woman’s head and is to place on her palms the grain-gift of reminding — it is a grain-gift of jealousy! — and in the hand of the kohen is to be the Water of Bitterness Bringing the Bane. 19 The kohen is to have her swear, saying to the woman: ‘If a man did not lie with you, and if you did not stray to make-yourself-tamei under your husband(‘s authority), be-clear from this Water of Bitterness Bringing the Bane! 20 But you, if you strayed under your husband(‘s authority), if you made-yourself-tamei, and a man gave you his emission, other than your husband:’ 21 the kohen is to have the woman swear the oath curse, and the kohen is to say to the woman: ‘may YHVH make you a curse and a cause-for-oath in the midst of your kinspeople, when YHVH makes your thigh fall and your belly flood; 22 may this Water of Bitterness enter your innards, to cause the belly to flood and the thigh to fall!’ And the woman is to say: ‘Amen! Amen!'”

6 1 YHVH spoke to Mosheh, saying: 2 “Speak to the Children of Yisrael and say to them: ‘A man or a woman — when one sets oneself apart, by vowing the vow of a Nazir/Consecrated-one, to consecrate-oneself for YHVH: 3 from wine and from intoxicant one is to consecrate-oneself; fermentation of wine and fermentation of intoxicant one is not to drink, any liquid of grapes one is not to drink, and grapes, moist or dried, one is not to eat. 4 All the days of one’s being-consecrated, anything that is made from the vine of wine, from seeds to skin, one is not to eat.'”

5 “All the days of one’s vow of being-consecrated a razor is not to go-across one’s head; until the fulfilling of days that one is consecrated for YHVH, holy shall one remain; one is to grow loose the hair on one’s head.”

6 “All the days that one consecrates-oneself for YHVH, near a dead person one is not to come — 7 (even) for one’s father or one’s mother, one’s brother or one’s sister; one is not to make-oneself-tamei by them when they die, for (hair) consecrated for one’s elo’ah is upon one’s head. 8 All the days of one’s being-consecrated, one is holy to YHVH.”

9 “Now if a dead-man has died near one suddenly, all-of-a-sudden, so that one makes-tamei the consecrated (hair of one’s) head, one is to shave one’s head on the day of one’s becoming-pure; on the seventh day one is to shave it. 10 Now on the eighth day one is to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons to the kohen, to the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed. 11 The kohen is to sacrifice one as a ḥattat/decontamination-offering, and one as an offering-up; he is to effect-atonement for one, in that one became-contaminated by the (dead) person. One is to make one’s head holy (again) on that day, 12 and is to reconsecrate to YHVH the days of one’s being-consecrated, bringing a lamb in its (first) year as an asham/compensation-offering. The former days are to be (considered) fallen-away, since tamei became one’s state-of-consecration.”

13 “Now this is the Ritual-instruction for the Nazir: On the day that one’s days of being-consecrated are fulfilled, one is to be brought to the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed; 14 one is to bring-near as one’s near-offering to YHVH: a lamb in its (first) year, wholly-sound, one, as an offering-up, and one ewe-lamb in its (first) year, wholly-sound, as a ḥattat-offering, and one ram, wholly-sound, as a shalom-offering; 15 a basket of matzot of flour, round-loaves mixed with oil, wafers of matsot spread with oil, (as well as) their grain-gift and their poured-offerings. 16 The kohen is to come-near before the presence of YHVH, and is to sacrifice his ḥattat-offering and his offering-up, 17 and the ram he is to sacrifice as a slaughter-offering of shalom to YHVH, together with the basket of matsot; then the kohen is to sacrifice his grain-gift and his poured-offering. 18 The Consecrated-One is then to shave, at the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed, one’s consecrated head, and is to take the hair of one’s consecrated head and put (it) on the fire that is under the slaughter-offering of shalom. 19 The kohen is to take the shoulder of the ram, boiled, and one loaf of matsah from the basket, and one wafer of matsah, and is to put (them) upon the palms of the Nazir, after one’s shaving of one’s consecrated (hair). 20 The kohen is to elevate them as an elevation-offering, before the presence of YHVH — it is a holy-offering for the kohen — on top of the breast of the elevation-offering and on top of the thigh of the contribution, and after (that) the Nazir may drink wine.”

21 “This is the Instruction for the Nazir who vows a near-offering to YHVH in addition to one’s (requirement of) consecration, aside from what one’s hand can reach: according to the vow that one has vowed, thus is one to perform, in addition to the instructed-requirements of one’s consecration.”

24 May YHVH bless you and keep you!
25 May YHVH shine his face upon you and favor you!
26 May YHVH lift up his face toward you and grant you shalom!’
27 So are they to put my name upon the Children of Yisrael, that I myself may bless them.”

7 1 Now it was, at the time that Mosheh finished setting up the Mishkan, he anointed it and hallowed it, with all its implements, and the Mizbe’aḥ, with all its implements, he anointed them and he hallowed them. 2 Then brought-near the exalted-leaders of Yisrael, the heads of their Fathers’ House — they are the leaders of the tribes, they are those who stand over the counting — 3 they brought their near-offering before the presence of YHVH: six litter wagons and twelve cattle, a wagon for (every) two leaders and an ox for (each) one and they brought-them-near to the Mishkan. 4 YHVH said to Mosheh, saying: 5 “Take (these) from them, that they may serve for the service-of-transport of the Ohel Mo’ed, and give them to the Levi’im, each-man according to his serving-tasks.” 6 Mosheh took the wagons and the cattle and gave them to the Levi’im. 7 Two wagons and four cattle he gave to the Sons of Gershon, according to their serving-orders, 8 four wagons and eight cattle he gave to the Sons of Merari, according to their serving-orders, under the hand of Itamar son of Aharon the kohen, 9 but to the Sons of Kehat he did not give (any), for the service-of-transport of the holy-things is theirs, by shoulder they are to carry (them).

10 The leaders brought-near the initiation-offering of the Mizbe’aḥ, at the time of its being-anointed. Now when the leaders brought-near their near-offering before the Mizbe’aḥ, 11 YHVH said to Mosheh: “One leader per day, one leader per day, let them bring-near their near-offering, for the initiation of the Mizbe’aḥ.”

12 So he who brought-near his near-offering on the first day was: Naḥshon son of Amminadav, of the tribe of Yehudah. 13 His near-offering: one dish of silver, thirty and a hundred its sheqel-weight, one bowl of silver, seventy sheqels according to the Holy-shrine sheqel, both of them filled with flour mixed with oil, for a grain-gift, 14 one ladle (of) ten (sheqels) of gold, filled with smoking-incense, 15 one bull, a young of the herd, one ram, one lamb in its (first) year, as an offering-up; 16 one hairy goat as a ḥattat-offering; 17 and as a slaughter-offering of shalom: oxen two, rams five, he-goats five, and lambs in the (first) year five. That (was) the near-offering of Naḥshon son of Amminadav.

פט וּבְבֹ֨א מֹשֶׁ֜ה אֶל־אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵד֮ לְדַבֵּ֣ר אִתּוֹ֒ וַיִּשְׁמַ֨ע אֶת־הַקּ֜וֹל מִדַּבֵּ֣ר אֵלָ֗יו מֵעַ֤ל הַכַּפֹּ֙רֶת֙ אֲשֶׁר֙ עַל־אֲרֹ֣ן הָעֵדֻ֔ת מִבֵּ֖ין שְׁנֵ֣י הַכְּרֻבִ֑ים וַיְדַבֵּ֖ר אֵלָֽיו׃
89 Now when Mosheh would come in the Ohel Mo’ed to speak with him, he would hear the voice continually-speaking to him from above the Kaporet that is atop the Aron haÉdut, from between the two winged-sphinxes; and he would he speak to him.

The Masoretic text presented here is from Rabbi Dr. Seth (Avi) Kadish’s Miqra al pi ha-Mesorah. For the translation in English, I have adapted the translation of Everett Fox in the Schocken Bible (1997), mostly to re-Hebraize divine names, place names, and personal names. In this parashah, I have been careful to Hebraize the Mishkan and its main sacred objects. For ‘taḥash,’ I follow the recommendation of Assyriologst Stephanie Dalley, who recommends ‘faience beaded-leather’. (Fox has “tanned-leather.”) I’ve made minor edits to Fox’s translation for Numbers 4:46 and 7:3 to more clearly correspond with the emendations indicated in then narrative layers. Aside from these, I have made minor punctuation changes.
