Numbers - Chapter 1
10 Of the sons of Joseph: for Ephraim, Elishama son of Ammihud; for Manasseh, Gamaliel son of Pedahzur.
17 Moses and Aaron took these men who had been named
18 and on the first day of the second month they mustered the whole community. The Israelites established their pedigrees by clans and families, and one by one the names of all men of twenty years and over were recorded.
20 Once the pedigrees of the descendants of Reuben, Israel's first-born, had been established by clans and families, the names of all the males of twenty years and over, fit to bear arms, were recorded one by one.
21 The total of these for the tribe of Reuben was forty-six thousand five hundred.
23 The total of these for the tribe of Simeon was fifty-nine thousand three hundred.
25 The total of these for the tribe of Gad was forty-five thousand six hundred and fifty.
29 The total of these for the tribe of Issachar was fifty-four thousand four hundred.
32 As regards the descendants of Joseph: once the pedigrees of Ephraim's descendants had been established by clans and families, the names of all the males of twenty years and over, fit to bear arms, were recorded one by one.
37 The total of these for the tribe of Benjamin was thirty-five thousand four hundred.
39 The total of these for the tribe of Dan was sixty-two thousand seven hundred.
44 Such were the men registered by Moses, Aaron and the leaders of Israel, of whom there were twelve, each representing his family.
45 All the Israelites of twenty years and over, fit to bear arms, were counted by families.
47 But the Levites and their tribes were not included in the count.
48 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
49 'Do not, however, take a census of the Levites, or register them with the other Israelites,
50 but enrol the Levites to take charge of the Dwelling where the Testimony is and of all its furnishings and belongings. They must carry the Dwelling and all its furnishings; they must look after the Dwelling and pitch their camp round it.
53 but the Levites will pitch their tents round the Dwelling where the Testimony is. In this way Retribution will be kept from falling on the whole community of Israelites, and the Levites will keep charge of the Dwelling of the Testimony.'
