Numbers chapter .j.

And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of witness, the first day of the second month, and in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt saying: take ye the sum of all the multitude of the children of Israel, in their kindreds and households of their fathers and number them by name all that are males, poll by poll, from twenty years and above: even all that are able to go forth in to war in Israel, thou and Aaron shall number them in their armies, and with you shall be of every tribe a head man in the house of his father. And these are the names of the men that shall stond with you: in Ruben, Elizur the son of Sedeur: In Simeon, Selumiel: the son of Zuri Sadai: In the tribe of Iuda, Nahesson the son of Aminadab: In Isachar, Nathaneel the son of Zuar: In Zabulon, Eliab the son of Helon. Among the children of Ioseph: In Ephraim, Elisama the son of Amihud: In Manasse, Gamaliel the son of Pedazur: In BenIamin, Abidan the son of Gedeoni: In Dan, Ahiezer the son of Ammi Sadai: In Aser, Pagiel the son of Ochran: In Gad, Elisaph the son of Deguel: In Naphtali, Ahira the son of Enan. These were councillors of the congregation and lords in the tribes of their fathers and captains over thousands in Israel.
And Moses and Aaron took these men above named and gathered all the congregation together, the first day of the second month, and reckoned them after their birth and kindreds and houses of their fathers by name from twenty years and above head by head, as the LORD commanded Moses, even so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai. And the children of Ruben Israel's eldest son in their generations, kindreds and houses of their fathers, when they were numbered every man by name, all that were males from twenty years and above, as many as were able to go forth in war: were numbered in the tribe of Ruben, forty six thousand and five hundred. Among the children of Simeon: their generation in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when every man's name was told) of all the males from twenty years and above, whatsoever was meet for the war: were numbered in the tribe of Simeon forty nine thousand and three hundred. Among the children of Gad: their generation in their kindreds and households of their fathers, when they were told by name, from twenty years and above, all that were mete for the war: were numbered in the tribe of Gad forty five thousand, six hundred and fifty. Among the children of Iuda: their generation in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (by the number of names) from twenty years and above, all that were able to war, were told in the tribe of Iuda seventy four thousand and six hundred. Among the children of Isachar: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when their names were counted) from twenty years and above, whatsoever was apt for war, were numbered in the tribe of Isachar fifty four thousand and four hundred. Among the children of Zabulon: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (after the number of names) from twenty years and above, whosoever was mete for the war: were counted in the tribe of Zabulon fifty seven thousand and four hundred. Among the children of Ioseph: first among the children of Ephraim: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when the names of all that were apt to the war were told) from twenty years and above: were in number in the tribe of Ephraim, forty thousand, and six hundred. Among the children of Manasse: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when the names of all that were apt to war were told) from twenty and above were numbered in the tribe of Manasse thirty two thousand and two hundred. Among the children of BenIamin: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (by the tale of names) from twenty years and above of all that were mete for war, were numbered in the tribe of BenIamin thirty five thousand and four hundred. Among the children of Dan: their generation in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (in the sum of names) of all that was apt to war from twenty years and above, were numbered in the tribe of Dan fifty seven thousand and seven hundred. Among the children of Asser: their generation, in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when they were summed by name) from twenty years and above, all that were apt to war were numbered in the tribe of Asser forty one thousand and five hundred. Among the children of Naphtali: their generation in their kindreds and houses of their fathers (when their names were told) from twenty years and above, whatsoever was mete to war: were numbered in the tribe of Naphtali fifty three thousand and four hundred.
These are the numbers which Moses and Aaron numbered with the twelve princes of Israel: of every house of their fathers a man. And all the numbers of the children of Israel, in the houses of their fathers, from twenty years and above, whatsoever was mete for the war in Israel, drew unto the sum of six hundred (and three) thousand, five hundred and fifty.
But the Levites in the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: only see that thou number not the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel. But thou shalt appoint the Levites unto the habitation of witness, and to all the apparel thereof and unto all that longeth thereto. For they shall bear the tabernacle and all the ordinance thereof, and they shall minister it and shall pitch their tents round about it. And when the tabernacle goeth forth the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is pitched, they shall set it up: for if any stranger come near, he shall die. And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man in his own company and every man by his own standard thorowout all their hosts. But the Levites shall pitch round about the habitation of witness, that there fall no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel, and the Levites shall wait upon the habitation of witness. And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses.
