Next Chapter

 1 And the LORD spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, 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 the census 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; you and Aaron shall number them by their armies.

 4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; everyone 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, Elizur the son of Shedeur.

 6 Of Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

 7 Of Judah, Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

 8 Of Issachar, Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

 9 Of Zebulun, Eliab the son of Helon.

 10 Of the children of Joseph of Ephraim, Elishama the son of Ammihud; of Manasseh, Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur.

 11 Of Benjamin, Abidan the son of Gideoni.

 12 Of Dan, Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai.

 13 Of Asher, Pagiel the son of Ocran.

 14 Of Gad, Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

 15 Of Naphtali, Ahira the son of Enan."

 16 These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel.

 17 And Moses and Aaron took these men who are identified by their names:

 18 And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their linieages 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 Sinai.

 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;

 23 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty and nine thousand three hundred.

 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;

 25 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Gad, were forty five thousand six hundred and fifty.

 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;

 27 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Judah, were seventy four thousand six hundred.

 28 Of the children of Issachar, 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 Issachar, were fifty four thousand four hundred.

 30 Of the children of Zebulun, 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;

 31 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty seven thousand four hundred.

 32 Of the children of Joseph, namely, of the children of Ephraim, 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 Ephraim, were forty thousand five hundred.

 34 Of the children of Manasseh, 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;

 35 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Manasseh, were thirty two thousand two hundred.

 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;

 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 sixty two thousand 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 one thousand five hundred.

 42 Of the children of Naphtali, 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;

 43 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty three thousand four hundred.

 44 These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, were 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 those who were numbered were six hundred three thousand five hundred fifty.

 47 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.

 48 For the LORD had spoken to Moses, saying,

 49 "Except you shall not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel.

 50 Instead you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all its vessels, and over all things that belong to it; they shall bear the tabernacle, and all its vessels; and they shall minister to it, and shall encamp around the tabernacle.

 51 And when the tabernacle is to advance 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 comes near 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 their tents around the tabernacle of testimony, so that there is 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.
