A Census of Israel's Warriors

1Yahweh spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai in the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the second month in the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
  2“Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names, every male, one by one
  3from twenty years old and upward, all who are able to go out to war in Israel. You and Aaron are to number them by their divisions.
  4With you there is to be a man of every tribe, everyone head of his fathers’ house.
  5These are the names of the men who are to stand with you:

 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: Nethanel 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 Ochran.

 

 14 Of Gad: Eliasaph the son of Deuel.

 

 15 Of Naphtali: Ahira the son of Enan.”

 

16These are those of the congregation who were called, the chiefs of the tribes of their fathers; they were the heads of the thousands of Israel.
 

17Moses and Aaron took those men who were mentioned by name.
  18They assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month and they declared their ancestry by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, one by one.
  19As Yahweh commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.
 

20The children of Reuben, Israel’s firstborn, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names, one by one, every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
 

21those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Reuben were 46,500.
 

22Of the children of Simeon, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, those who were numbered of it according to the number of the names, one by one, every male from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  23those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Simeon were 59,300.
 

24Of the children of Gad, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;

28Of the children of Issachar, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  29those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Issachar were 54,400.
 

30Of the children of Zebulun, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  31those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Zebulun were 57,400.
 

32Of the children of Joseph,

of the children of Ephraim, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  33those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Ephraim were 40,500.
 

34Of the children of Manasseh, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  35those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Manasseh were 32,200.
 

36Of the children of Benjamin, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  37those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Benjamin were 35,400.
 

38Of the children of Dan, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  39those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Dan 62,700.
 

40Of the children of Asher, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  41those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Asher were 41,500.
 

42Of the children of Naphtali, their generations by their families, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of the names from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war;
  43those who were numbered of them of the tribe of Naphtali were 53,400.

44These are those who were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, and the rulers of Israel, being 12 men: they were each one for his fathers’ house.
  45So all those who were numbered of the children of Israel by their fathers’ houses, from twenty years old and upward, all who were able to go out to war in Israel,
  46even all those who were numbered were 603,550.
 

Levites Exempted

47But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.
  48For Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  49“Only the tribe of Levi you are not to number, nor are you to take a census of them among the children of Israel;
  50but appoint the Levites over the Tabernacle of the Testimony and over all its furnishings, and over all that belongs to it. They are to carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they are to take care of it and are to encamp around it.
  51When the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites are to set it up. The unauthorized person who comes near must be put to death.
 

52“The children of Israel are to pitch their tents, every man by his own camp and every man by his own standard according to their divisions.
  53But the Levites are to encamp around the Tabernacle of the Testimony so that there is no wrath on the congregation of the children of Israel; and the Levites will be responsible for the Tabernacle of the Testimony.”
  54And the children of Israel did according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses; thus did they do.
