The Numbering of Israel at Sinai
1  And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Si'nai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
2  Take ye the sum Num. 26.1-51 of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls;
3  from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.
4  And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers.
5  And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Eli'zur the son of Shede'ur.
6  Of Simeon; Shelu'mi-el the son of Zurishad'dai.
7  Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Ammin'adab.
8  Of Is'sachar; Nethan'e-el the son of Zu'ar.
9  Of Zeb'ulun; Eli'ab the son of Helon.
10  Of the children of Joseph: of E'phra-im; Elish'ama the son of Ammi'hud: of Manas'seh; Gama'li-el the son of Pedah'zur.

17  ¶ And Moses and Aaron took these men which are expressed by their names:
18  and they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.
19  As the LORD commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Si'nai.
20  ¶ And the children of Reuben, Israel's eldest son, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
21  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Reuben, were forty and six thousand and five hundred.
22  ¶ Of the children of Simeon, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, those that were numbered of them, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

24  ¶ Of the children of Gad, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

26  ¶ Of the children of Judah, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

28  ¶ Of the children of Is'sachar, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
29  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Is'sachar, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.
30  ¶ Of the children of Zeb'ulun, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

33  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of E'phra-im, were forty thousand and five hundred.
34  ¶ Of the children of Manas'seh, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

36  ¶ Of the children of Benjamin, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
37  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Benjamin, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred.
38  ¶ Of the children of Dan, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
39  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Dan, were threescore and two thousand and seven hundred.
40  ¶ Of the children of Asher, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
41  those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Asher, were forty and one thousand and five hundred.
42  ¶ Of the children of Naph'tali, throughout their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

44  ¶ These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: each one was for the house of his fathers.
45  So were all those that were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel;
46  even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

The Appointment of the Levites
47  ¶ But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.
48  For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,
49  Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:
50  but thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.
51  And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
52  And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.
53  But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony.
54  And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
