The 300 to 600 years ancient bible scrolls

These 300 to 600 years old scrolls are part of GOD’s original Bible. They need to be decoded to discover GOD’s messaging to humanity.

Scroll #1: Numbers 33:4 to 36:10

The scroll holds exactly 1,200 words, 11,621 Hebrew letters (9.66% of the entire 1,202,972 source Bible letters) , and 77 spaces. It’s amazing since the Biblical scroll tells humanity about the 12 tribes’ formation and the number of words is 1200. The 77 is coded for “Mazal 77 מזל” which means it will bring GOOD LUCK to those involved.

Scroll #2: Numbers 15:29 To 18:20

1177 words 11,402 letters (9.478% of the 1,202,972 original Bible source letters) 92 spaces.

Then it shall extend to Hazar addar and continue toward Azmon. 5The border then turns from Azmon to the stream of Egypt, and its ends shall be to the sea. 6The western border: it shall be for you the Great [Mediterranean] Sea and the border this shall be your western border. 7This shall be your northern border: From the Great [Mediterranean] Sea turn yourselves toward Mount Hor. 8From Mount Hor turn to the entrance of Hamath, and the ends of the border shall be toward Zedad. 9The border shall then extend to Ziphron, and its ends shall be Hazar enan; this shall be your northern border. 10You shall then turn yourselves toward the eastern border, from Hazar enan to Shepham. 11The border descends from Shepham toward Riblah, to the east of Ain. Then the border descends and hits the eastern shore of Lake Kinnereth. 12The border then continues down along the Jordan, and its ends is the Sea of Salt [the Dead Sea]; this shall be your Land according to its borders around. 13Moses commanded the children of Israel saying, “This is the Land which you are to apportion for inheritance through lot, that the Lord has commanded to give to the nine and a half tribes. 14For the tribe of Reuben’s descendants according to their fathers’ house, and the tribe of Gad’s descendants according to their fathers’ house, and half the tribe of Manasseh have already received their inheritance. 15The two and a half tribes have received their inheritance on this side of the Jordan, near Jericho in the east, toward the sunrise.” 16The Lord spoke to Moses saying: 17These are the names of the men who shall inherit the land on your behalf: Eleazar the kohen and Joshua the son of Nun. 18You shall take one chieftain from each tribe to [help you to] acquire the land. 19These are the names of the men: for the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh. 20For the tribe of the descendants of Simeon, Samuel the son of Ammihud. 21For the tribe of Benjamin, Elidad the son of Chislon. 22The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Dan, Bukki the son of Jogli. 23For the descendants of Joseph; the chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Manasseh, Hanniel the son of Ephod. 24The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Ephraim, Kemuel the son of Shiphtan. 25The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Zebulun, Elizaphan the son of Parnach. 26The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Issachar, Paltiel the son of Azzan. 27The chieftain for the tribe of the descendants of Asher, Ahihud the son of Shelomi. 28The chieftain of the tribe of the descendants of Naphtali, Pedahel the son of Ammihud. 29These are the ones whom the Lord commanded to apportion the inheritance to the children of Israel in the land of Canaan. —- NUMBERS 35 1The Lord spoke to Moses in the plains of Moab, by the Jordan at Jericho saying: 2Command the children of Israel that they shall give to the Levites from their hereditary possession cities in which to dwell, and you shall give the Levites open spaces around the cities. 3These cities shall be theirs for dwelling, and their open spaces shall be for their cattle, their property, and for all their needs. 4The areas of open space for the cities which you shall give to the Levites shall extend from the wall of the city outward, one thousand cubits all around. 5You shall measure from outside the city, two thousand cubits on the eastern side, two thousand cubits on the southern side, two thousand cubits on the western side, and two thousand cubits on the northern side, with the city in the middle; this shall be your cities’ open spaces. 6Among the cities you shall give to the Levites, shall be six cities of refuge, which you shall provide [as places] to which a murderer can flee. In addition to them, you shall provide forty two cities. 7All the cities you shall give to the Levites shall number forty eight cities, them with their open spaces. 8And as for the cities that you shall give from the possession of the children of Israel, you shall take more from a larger [holding] and you shall take less from a smaller one. Each one, according to the inheritance allotted to him, shall give of his cities to the Levites. 9The Lord spoke to Moses saying: 10Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, When you cross the Jordan to the land of Canaan, 11you shall designate cities for yourselves; they shall be cities of refuge for you, and a murderer who killed a person unintentionally shall flee there. 12These cities shall serve you as a refuge from an avenger, so that the murderer shall not die until he stands in judgment before the congregation. 13The cities that you provide shall serve as six cities of refuge for you. 14You shall provide the three cities in trans Jordan and the three cities in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge. 15These six cities shall be a refuge for the children of Israel and for the proselyte and resident among them, so that anyone who unintentionally kills a person can flee there. 16If he struck him with an iron instrument and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. 17If he struck him with a fist sized stone which is deadly, and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. 18Or with a fist sized wooden instrument which is deadly, and he dies, he is a murderer, and the murderer shall be put to death. 19The blood avenger shall kill the murderer; he may kill him when he meets him. 20If, out of hatred, he pushed him, or threw something at him with premeditation, and he died, 21or if he maliciously struck him with his hand and he died, the assailant shall be put to death; he is a murderer; the blood avenger may kill the murderer when he meets him. 22But if he pushed him accidentally, without malice, or threw an object at him without premeditation, 23or, with any stone which is deadly, and without seeing [his victim] he threw it down at him and it killed him, but he was not his enemy and bore him no malice 24Then the congregation shall judge between the assailant and the blood avenger, on the basis of these judgments. 25The congregation shall protect the murderer from the hand of the blood avenger, and the congregation shall return him to the city of refuge to which he had fled, and he shall remain there until the Kohen Gadol, who anointed him with the sacred oil, dies. 26But if the murderer goes beyond the border of the city of refuge to which he had fled, 27and the blood avenger finds him outside the limits of his city of refuge, and the blood avenger slays the murderer, he has no blood. 28For he shall remain in his city of refuge until the Kohen Gadol dies, and only after the Kohen Gadol has died, may the murderer return to the land which is his possession. 29These shall be for you a statute of justice for all your generations, in all your dwelling places. 30Whoever [namely the blood avenger] kills a person, based on the testimony of witnesses, he shall slay the murderer. A single witness may not testify against a person so that he should die. 31You shall not accept ransom for the life of a murderer, who is guilty of death, for he shall be put to death. 32You shall not accept ransom for one who has fled to his city of refuge, to allow him to return to live in the Land, before the kohen has died. 33And you shall not corrupt the land in which you live, for the blood corrupts the land, and the blood which is shed in the land cannot be atoned for except through the blood of the one who shed it. 34And you shall not defile the land where you reside, in which I dwell, for I am the Lord Who dwells among the children of Israel. — NUMBERS 36:10 1The paternal heads of the family of the sons of Gilead the son of Machir the son of Manasseh of the families of the sons of Joseph approached and spoke before Moses and before the chieftains, the paternal heads of the children of Israel. 2They said, “The Lord commanded my master to give the Land as an inheritance through lot to the children of Israel, and our master was commanded by the Lord to give the inheritance of Zelophehad our brother to his daughters. 3Now, if they marry a member of another tribe of the children of Israel, their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father, and it will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and thus, it will be diminished from the lot of our inheritance. 4Even if the children of Israel will have a Jubilee, their inheritance will be added to the inheritance of the tribe into which they marry, and their inheritance will be diminished from the inheritance of our father’s tribe.” 5Moses commanded the children of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, “The tribe of Joseph’s descendants speak justly. 6This is the word that the Lord has commanded regarding Zelophehad’s daughters. Let them marry whomever they please, but they shall marry only to the family of their father’s tribe. 7Thus, the inheritance of the children of Israel will not be transferred from tribe to tribe, for each person from the children of Israel will remain attached to the inheritance of his father’s tribe. 8Every daughter from the tribes of the children of Israel who inherits property, shall marry a member of her father’s tribe, so each one of the children of Israel shall inherit the property of his forefathers. 9And no inheritance will be transferred from one tribe to another tribe, for each person of the tribes of the children of Israel shall remain attached to his own inheritance.” 10As the Lord had commanded….

— Numbers 15:29 29One law shall apply to anyone who sins inadvertently from the native born of the children of Israel and the proselyte who resides among them. 30But if a person should act highhandedly, whether he is a native born or a proselyte, he is blaspheming the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from among its people. 31For he has scorned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment; that soul shall be utterly cut off for its iniquity is upon it. 32When the children of Israel were in the desert, they found a man gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 33Those who found him gathering wood presented him before Moses and Aaron and before the entire congregation. 34They put him under guard, since it was not specified what was to be done to him. 35The Lord said to Moses, The man shall be put to death; the entire congregation shall pelt him with stones outside the camp. 36So the entire congregation took him outside the camp, and they pelted him to death with stones, as the Lord had commanded Moses. 37The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 38Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue [wool] on the fringe of each corner. 39This shall be fringes for you, and when you see it, you will remember all the commandments of the Lord to perform them, and you shall not wander after your hearts and after your eyes after which you are going astray. 40So that you shall remember and perform all My commandments and you shall be holy to your God. 41I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord, your God. — NUMBERS 16 1Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi took [himself to one side] along with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, descendants of Reuben. 2They confronted Moses together with two hundred and fifty men from the children of Israel, chieftains of the congregation, representatives of the assembly, men of repute. 3They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?” 4Moses heard and fell on his face. 5He spoke to Korah and to all his company, saying, “In the morning, the Lord will make known who is His, and who is holy, and He will draw [them] near to Him, and the one He chooses, He will draw near to Him. 6Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. 7Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi.” 8Moses said to Korah, “Please listen, sons of Levi. 9Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? 10He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? 11Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?” 12Moses sent to call Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, but they said, “We will not go up. 13Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? 14You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up.” 15Moses was exceedingly distressed, and he said to the Lord, “Do not accept their offering. I have not taken a donkey from a single one of them, and I have not harmed a single one of them.” 16Moses said to Korah, “You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. 17Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; [there will thus be] two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each [take] his censer. 18So each man took his censer, and they put fire upon it and placed incense upon it, and they stood at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting with Moses and Aaron. 19Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the Lord appeared before the entire congregation. 20The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron saying, 21″Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. 22They fell on their faces and said, “O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation?” 23The Lord spoke to Moses saying, 24″Speak to the congregation saying, ‘Withdraw from the dwelling of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.'” 25Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, and the elders of Israel followed him. 26He spoke to the congregation saying, “Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. 27So they withdrew from around the dwelling of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, and Dathan and Abiram went out standing upright at the entrance of their tents together with their wives, their children, and their infants. 28Moses said, “With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. 29If these men die as all men die and the fate of all men will be visited upon them, then the Lord has not sent me. 30But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord.” 31As soon as he finished speaking all these words, the earth beneath them split open. 32The earth beneath them opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses, and all the men who were with Korah and all the property. 33They, and all they possessed, descended alive into the grave; the earth covered them up, and they were lost to the assembly. 34All Israel who were around them fled from their cries, for they said, “Lest the earth swallow us up [too]!” 35A fire came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who had offered up the incense. — Numbers 17 1The Lord spoke to Moses saying: 2Say to Eleazar the son of Aaron the kohen that he should pick up the censers from the burned area (but throw the fire away), because they have become sanctified, 3the censers of these who sinned at the cost of their lives, and they shall make them into flattened out plates as an overlay for the altar, for they brought them before the Lord, and have [therefore] become sanctified, and they shall be as a reminder for the children of Israel. 4So Eleazar the kohen took the copper censers which the fire victims had brought, and they hammered them out as an overlay for the altar, 5as a reminder for the children of Israel, so that no outsider, who is not of the seed of Aaron, shall approach to burn incense before the Lord, so as not to be like Korah and his company, as the Lord spoke regarding him through the hand of Moses. 6The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, “You have killed the people of the Lord.” 7It came to pass while the congregation were assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned to the Tent of Meeting, and behold, the cloud had covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared. 8Moses and Aaron came to the front of the Tent of Meeting. 9The Lord spoke to Moses saying: 10Stand aside from this congregation, and I shall consume them in an instant.” They fell on their faces. 11Moses said to Aaron, “Take the censer and put fire from the altar top into it and put incense. Then take it quickly to the congregation and atone for them, for wrath has gone forth from the Lord, and the plague has begun.” 12Aaron took [it], just as Moses had said, and he ran into the midst of the assembly, and behold, the plague had begun among the people. He placed the incense on it and atoned for the people. 13He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague ceased. 14The number of dead in the plague was fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides those who died because of the matter of Korah. 15Aaron returned to Moses at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and the plague was checked. 16The Lord spoke to Moses saying: 17Speak to the children of Israel and take from them a staff for each father’s house from all the chieftains according to their fathers’ houses; [a total of] twelve staffs, and inscribe each man’s name on his staff. 18Inscribe Aaron’s name on the staff of Levi, for there is [only] one staff for the head of their fathers’ house. 19You shall place the staffs in the Tent of Meeting before the [Ark of] the Testimony where I commune with you. 20The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down [turning away] from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. 21Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and all their chieftains gave him a staff for each chieftain according to their fathers’ houses, [a total of] twelve staffs, and Aaron’s staff was amidst their staffs. 22Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the Tent of the Testimony. 23And on the following day Moses came to the Tent of Testimony, and behold, Aaron’s staff for the house of Levi had blossomed! It gave forth blossoms, sprouted buds, and produced ripe almonds. 24Moses took out all the staffs from before the Lord, to the children of Israel; they saw and they took, each man his staff. 25The Lord said to Moses: Put Aaron’s staff back in front of the Testimony as a keepsake [and] a sign for rebellious ones. Then their complaints against Me will end and they will not die. 26Moses did so. He did just as the Lord had commanded him. 27The children of Israel spoke to Moses saying, “Behold, we are dying, we will perish, we are all lost! 28Whoever comes the closest to the Mishkan of the Lord dies! Have we been consigned to die? — Numbers 18:20
