Numbers 1
God commandeth Moses to number the people.
Numbers 1:1 Then spake Yahweh unto Moses, in the desert of Sinai, in the tent of meeting,—on the first of the second, month in the second year, by their coming forth out of the land of Egypt, saying: Numbers 1:2 Reckon ye up the sum of all the assembly of the sons of Israel, by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, every male, by their polls; Numbers 1:3 from twenty years old and upwards, every one able to go forth to war, in Israel,—ye shall number them by their hosts, thou and Aaron; Numbers 1:4 and, with you, shall be one man for each tribe,—each man, head of his ancestral house, shall be.
The princes of the tribes.
Numbers 1:5 These, then, are the names of the men who shall stand with you,—Of Reuben, Elizur, son of Shedeur; Numbers 1:6 Of Simeon, Shelumiel, son of Zurishaddai; Numbers 1:7 Of Judah, Nahshon, son of Amminadab; Numbers 1:8 Of Issachar, Nethanel, son of Zuar; Numbers 1:9 Of Zebulun, Eliab, son of Helon; Numbers 1:10 Of the sons of Joseph,—Of Ephraim, Elishama, son of Ammihud; Of Manasseh, Gamaliel, son of Pedahzur; Numbers 1:11 Of Benjamin, Abidan, son of Gideoni; Numbers 1:12 Of Dan, Ahiezer, son of Ammishaddai; Numbers 1:13 Of Asher, Pagiel, son of Ochran; Numbers 1:14 Of Gad, Eliasaph, son of Deuel; Numbers 1:15 Of Naphtali, Ahira, son of Enan. Numbers 1:16 These, are they who had been summoned by the assembly, being, princes of the tribes of their fathers,—heads of the thousands of Israel.
The number of every tribe.
Numbers 1:17 So then Moses and Aaron took these men, who were distinguished by name; Numbers 1:18 all the assembly also, called they together, on the first of the second month,—and they declared their pedigree according to their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, from twenty years old and upwards, by their polls. Numbers 1:19 As Yahweh commanded Moses, so he mustered them in the desert of Sinai. Numbers 1:20 And they were [as followeth]—The sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, by their polls, every male, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:21 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Reuben, fortysix thousand, and five hundred.

Numbers 1:30 Of the sons of Zebulun, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:31 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Zebulun, fiftyseven thousand, and four hundred.
Numbers 1:32 Of the sons of Joseph—Of the sons of Ephraim, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:33 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Ephraim, forty thousand, and five hundred.
Numbers 1:34 Of the sons of Manasseh, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:35 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Manasseh, thirtytwo thousand, and two hundred.
Numbers 1:36 Of the sons of Benjamin, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses,—in the counting of names, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:37 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Benjamin, thirtyfive thousand and four hundred.
Numbers 1:38 Of the sons of Dan, in their pedigrees—by their families, by their ancestral houses, in the counting of names, from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war; Numbers 1:39 such as were numbered of them, as belonging to the tribe of Dan, sixtytwo thousand, and seven hundred.

Numbers 1:44 These, are they who were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron, and the twelve princes of Israel did number, the princes acting each one for his ancestral house. Numbers 1:45 So then all they who were numbered of the sons of Israel, by their ancestral houses,—from twenty years old, and upwards, every one able to go forth to war in Israel; Numbers 1:46 so then all they who were numbered were six hundred and three thousand, and five hundred and fifty.
The Levites are exempted for the service of the LORD.
Numbers 1:47 But, the Levites, by the tribe of their fathers, were not numbered in their midst. Numbers 1:48 For Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Numbers 1:49 Only, the tribe of Levi, shalt thou not number, nor, the sum of them, shalt thou reckon up,—in the midst of the sons of Israel. Numbers 1:50 But do, thou thyself, put the Levites in charge over the habitation of the testimony, and over all the furniture thereof, and over all that pertaineth thereto, they, shall bear the habitation, and all the furniture thereof, and they, shall attend thereupon; and, round about the habitation, shall they encamp. Numbers 1:51 And, when the habitation is to set forward, the Levites, shall take it down, and, when the habitation is to be pitched, the Levites, shall set it up,—but, the stranger that draweth near, shall be put to death. Numbers 1:52 So then the sons of Israel shall pitch their tents,—every man, near his own camp, and, every man, near his own standard, by their hosts; Numbers 1:53 but, the Levites, shall pitch their tents round about the habitation of the testimony, that there be no wrath upon the assembly of the sons of Israel,—so shall the Levites keep the watch of the habitation of the testimony. Numbers 1:54 Thus did the sons of Israel,—according to all that Yahweh commanded Moses, so, did they.
