 31:27
31:26 'Together with Eleazar the priest and the community's paternal leaders, you must take an accounting of the men and animals plundered as spoil.
Sa et rosh malkoach hashvi ba'adam uvabehemah atah ve'El'azar hakohen verashey avot ha'edah.
31:27 Then divide the plunder equally, giving half to the warriors who went out to battle and the other half to the community.
Vechatsita et-hamalkoach beyn tofsey hamilchamah hayots'im latsava uveyn kol-ha'edah.



Commentary:

divide the plunder equally
  This set the pattern that any spoils would be divided equally between those who went to battle and those who remained behind to stand guard (1 Samuel 30:24; Ralbag).
