Then the officers1 who were over the units of the army--the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds--went to Moses
and said to him, "Your servants have counted2 the soldiers under our command, and not one is missing.350
So we have brought as an offering to the LORD the gold articles each of us acquired--armlets, bracelets, signet rings, earrings and necklaces--to make atonement for ourselves4 before the LORD."
Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted from them the gold--all the crafted articles.
All the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds that Moses and Eleazar presented as a gift to the LORD weighed 16,750 shekels.a53
Each soldier had taken plunder5 for himself.
Moses and Eleazar the priest accepted the gold from the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds and brought it into the Tent of Meeting6 as a memorial7 for the Israelites before the LORD.
