Parsha Naso

Parsha Naso

Parsha Naso is translated as “take a census”. It’s the thirthy-fifth Torah reading in the annual reading cycle and second in sefer Bamidbar, the book of Leviticus. I found two spellings – “naso” or “nasso”

Parsha Naso Summary

Parsha Naso opens by continuing to explain the responsibilities of the Levites. Then it moves on to discuss three topics. Firstly, it describes the test for the woman accused of adultery (sotah). Secondly, the Nazirite vow. Finally, it teaches the priestly blessing.

Parsha Naso ends with the list of the gifts from the tribal leaders.

Naso נָשֹׂא is the first word and in the Hebrew text (see text below).

 נָשׂ֗א אֶת־רֹ֛אשׁ בְּנֵ֥י גֵֽרְשׁ֖וֹן גַּם־הֵ֑ם לְבֵ֥ית אֲבֹתָ֖ם לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָֽם:

Numbers (Bamidbar) 5.1 – 10 (Parsha Naso, Aliyah 3)

Num 5:1  And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Num 5:2  ‘Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is unclean by the dead;
Num 5:3  both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camp, in the midst whereof I dwell.’
Num 5:4  And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp; as the LORD spoke
Num 5:5  And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Num 5:6  Speak unto the children of Israel: When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to commit a trespass against the LORD, and that soul be guilty;
Num 5:7  then they shall confess their sin which they have done; and he shall make restitution for his guilt in full, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him in respect of whom he hath been guilty.
Num 5:8  But if the man have no kinsman to whom restitution may be made for the guilt, the restitution for guilt which is made shall be the LORD’S, even the priest’s; besides the ram of the atonement, whereby atonement shall be made for him.
Num 5:9  And every heave-offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they present unto the priest, shall be his.
Num 5:10  And every man’s hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his.

Numbers (Bamidbar) 5.11 – 31 (Parsha Naso, Aliyah 4)

Num 5:11  and the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Num 5:12  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: If any man’s wife go aside, and act unfaithfully against him,
Num 5:13  and a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, she being defiled secretly, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken in the act;
Num 5:14  and the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled; or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled;
Num 5:15  then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is a meal-offering of jealousy, a meal-offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
Num 5:16  And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD.
Num 5:17  And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water.
Num 5:18  And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and let the hair of the woman’s head go loose, and put the meal-offering of memorial in her hands, which is the meal-offering of jealousy; and the priest shall have in his hand the water of bitterness that causeth the curse.
Num 5:19  And the priest shall cause her to swear, and shall say unto the woman: ‘If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness, being under thy husband, be thou free from this water of bitterness that causeth the curse;
Num 5:20  but if thou hast gone aside, being under thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee besides thy husband –
Num 5:21  then the priest shall cause the woman to swear with the oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman – the LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to fall away, and thy belly to swell;
Num 5:22  and this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, and make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to fall away’; and the woman shall say: ‘Amen, Amen.’
Num 5:23  And the priest shall write these curses in a scroll, and he shall blot them out into the water of bitterness.
Num 5:24  And he shall make the woman drink the water of bitterness that causeth the curse; and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her and become bitter.
Num 5:25  And the priest shall take the meal-offering of jealousy out of the woman’s hand, and shall wave the meal-offering before the LORD, and bring it unto the altar.
Num 5:26  And the priest shall take a handful of the meal-offering, as the memorial-part thereof, and make it smoke upon the altar, and afterward shall make the woman drink the water.
Num 5:27  And when he hath made her drink the water, then it shall come to pass, if she be defiled, and have acted unfaithfully against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall fall away; and the woman shall be a curse among her people.
Num 5:28  And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be cleared, and shall conceive seed.
Num 5:29  This is the law of jealousy, when a wife, being under her husband, goeth aside, and is defiled;
Num 5:30  or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon a man, and he be jealous over his wife; then shall he set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.
Num 5:31  And the man shall be clear from iniquity, and that woman shall bear her iniquity.

Numbers (Bamidbar) 6.1-27 (Parsha Naso, Aliyah 4)

Num 6:1  And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Num 6:2  Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them: When either man or woman shall clearly utter a vow, the vow of a Nazirite, to consecrate himself unto the LORD,
Num 6:3  he shall abstain from wine and strong drink: he shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat fresh grapes or dried.
Num 6:4  All the days of his Naziriteship shall he eat nothing that is made of the grape-vine, from the pressed grapes even to the grapestone.
Num 6:5  All the days of his vow of Naziriteship there shall no razor come upon his head; until the days be fulfilled, in which he consecrateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, he shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow long.
Num 6:6  All the days that he consecrateth himself unto the LORD he shall not come near to a dead body.
Num 6:7  He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die; because his consecration unto God is upon his head.
Num 6:8  All the days of his Naziriteship he is holy unto the LORD.
Num 6:9  And if any man die very suddenly beside him, and he defile his consecrated head, then he shall shave his head in the day of his cleansing, on the seventh day shall he shave it.
Num 6:10  And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tent of meeting.
Num 6:11  And the priest shall prepare one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering, and make atonement for him, for that he sinned by reason of the dead; and he shall hallow his head that same day.
Num 6:12  And he shall consecrate unto the LORD the days of his Naziriteship, and shall bring a he-lamb of the first year for a guilt- offering; but the former days shall be void, because his consecration was defiled.
Num 6:13  And this is the law of the Nazirite, when the days of his consecration are fulfilled: he shall bring it unto the door of the tent of meeting;
Num 6:14  and he shall present his offering unto the LORD, one he-lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt-offering, and one ewe- lamb of the first year without blemish for a sin-offering, and one ram without blemish for peace-offerings,
Num 6:15  and a basket of unleavened bread, cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers spread with oil, and their meal- offering, and their drink-offerings.
Num 6:16  And the priest shall bring them before the LORD, and shall offer his sin-offering, and his burnt-offering.
Num 6:17  And he shall offer the ram for a sacrifice of peace-offerings unto the LORD, with the basket of unleavened bread; the priest shall offer also the meal-offering thereof, and the drink-offering thereof.
Num 6:18  And the Nazirite shall shave his consecrated head at the door of the tent of meeting, and shall take the hair of his consecrated head, and put it on the fire which is under the sacrifice of peace-offerings.
Num 6:19  And the priest shall take the shoulder of the ram when it is sodden, and one unleavened cake out of the basket, and one unleavened wafer, and shall put them upon the hands of the Nazirite, after he hath shaven his consecrated head.
Num 6:20  And the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before the LORD; this is holy for the priest, together with the breast of waving and the thigh of heaving; and after that the Nazirite may drink wine.
Num 6:21  This is the law of the Nazirite who voweth, and of his offering unto the LORD for his Naziriteship, beside that for which his means suffice; according to his vow which he voweth, so he must do after the law of his Naziriteship.

Num 6:22  And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:
Num 6:23  ‘Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying: On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel; ye shall say unto them:
Num 6:24  The LORD bless thee, and keep thee;
Num 6:25  The LORD make His face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee;
Num 6:26  The LORD lift up His countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
Num 6:27  So shall they put My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.’

Jdg 13:4  Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing.
Jdg 13:5  For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come upon his head; for the child shall be a Nazirite unto God from the womb; and he shall begin to save Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.’
Jdg 13:6  Then the woman came and told her husband, saying: ‘A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of the angel of God, very terrible; and I asked him not whence he was, neither told he me his name;
Jdg 13:7  but he said unto me: Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing; for the child shall be a Nazirite unto God from the womb to the day of his death.’
Jdg 13:8  Then Manoah entreated the LORD, and said: ‘Oh, LORD, I pray Thee, let the man of God whom Thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.’
Jdg 13:9  And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field; but Manoah her husband was not with her.
Jdg 13:10  And the woman made haste, and ran, and told her husband, and said unto him: ‘Behold, the man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me that day.’
Jdg 13:11  And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto him: ‘Art thou the man that spokest unto the woman?’ And he said: ‘I am.’
Jdg 13:12  And Manoah said: ‘Now when thy word cometh to pass, what shall be the rule for the child, and what shall be done with him?’
Jdg 13:13  And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah: ‘Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware.
Jdg 13:14  She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the grapevine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing; all that I commanded her let her observe.’
Jdg 13:15  And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD: ‘I pray thee, let us detain thee, that we may make ready a kid for thee.’
Jdg 13:16  And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah: ‘Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread; and if thou wilt make ready a burnt-offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD.’ For Manoah knew not that he was the angel of the LORD.
Jdg 13:17  And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD: ‘What is thy name, that when thy words come to pass we may do thee honour?’
Jdg 13:18  And the angel of the LORD said unto him: ‘Wherefore askest thou after my name, seeing it is hidden?’
Jdg 13:19  So Manoah took the kid with the meal-offering, and offered it upon the rock unto the LORD; and the angel did wondrously, and Manoah and his wife looked on.
Jdg 13:20  For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, that the angel of the LORD ascended in the flame of the altar; and Manoah and his wife looked on; and they fell on their faces to the ground.
Jdg 13:21  But the angel of the LORD did no more appear to Manoah or to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of the LORD.
Jdg 13:22  And Manoah said unto his wife: ‘We shall surely die, because we have seen God.’
Jdg 13:23  But his wife said unto him: ‘If the LORD were pleased to kill us, He would not have received a burnt-offering and a meal- offering at our hand, neither would He have shown us all these things, nor would at this time have told such things as these.’
Jdg 13:24  And the woman bore a son, and called his name Samson; and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.
Jdg 13:25  And the spirit of the LORD began to move him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.

Jn 12.20-36 (Parsha Naso, Renewed Covenant)

Joh 12:20  Now among those who went up to worship at the feast were some Greeks.
Joh 12:21  So these came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”
Joh 12:22  Philip went and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.
Joh 12:23  And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
Joh 12:24  Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
Joh 12:25  Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.
Joh 12:26  If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

Joh 12:27  “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour.
Joh 12:28  Father, glorify your name.” Then a voice came from heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.”
Joh 12:29  The crowd that stood there and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”
Joh 12:30  Jesus answered, “This voice has come for your sake, not mine.
Joh 12:31  Now is the judgment of this world; now will the ruler of this world be cast out.
Joh 12:32  And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
Joh 12:33  He said this to show by what kind of death he was going to die.
Joh 12:34  So the crowd answered him, “We have heard from the Law that the Christ remains forever. How can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?”
Joh 12:35  So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going.

Joh 12:36  While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them.
