Numbers 2 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Then the LORD gave these instructions to Moses and Aaron: 2 "Each tribe will be assigned its own area in the camp, and the various groups will camp beneath their family banners. The Tabernacle a will be located at the center of these tribal compounds." 3 "The divisions of Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun are to camp toward the sunrise on the east side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: Tribe - Leader - Number Judah - Nahshon son of Amminadab - 74,600 4 5 Issachar - Nethanel son of Zuar - 54,400 6 7 Zebulun - Eliab son of Helon - 57,400 8 9 So the total of all the troops on Judah's side of the camp is 186,400. These three tribes are to lead the way whenever the Israelites travel to a new campsite." 10 "The divisions of Reuben, Simeon, and Gad are to camp on the south side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: Tribe - Leader - Number Reuben - Elizur son of Shedeur - 46,500 11 12 Simeon - Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai - 59,300 13 14 Gad - Eliasaph son of Deuel b - 45,650 15 16 So the total of all the troops on Reuben's side of the camp is 151,450. These three tribes will be second in line whenever the Israelites travel." 17 "Then the Levites will set out from the middle of the camp with the Tabernacle. All the tribes are to travel in the same order that they camp, each in position under the appropriate family banner." 18 "The divisions of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin are to camp on the west side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: Tribe - Leader - Number Ephraim - Elishama son of Ammihud - 40,500 19 20 Manasseh - Gamaliel son of Pedahzur - 32,200 21 22 Benjamin - Abidan son of Gideoni - 35,400 23 24 So the total of all the troops on Ephraim's side of the camp is 108,100, and they will follow the Levites in the line of march." 25 "The divisions of Dan, Asher, and Naphtali are to camp on the north side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: Tribe - Leader - Number Dan - Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai - 62,700 26 27 Asher - Pagiel son of Ocran - 41,500 28 29 Naphtali - Ahira son of Enan - 53,400 30 31 So the total of all the troops on Dan's side of the camp is 157,600. They are to bring up the rear whenever the Israelites move to a new campsite." 32 In summary, the troops of Israel listed by their families totaled 603,550. 33 The Levites were exempted from this census by the LORD's command to Moses. 34 So the people of Israel did everything just as the LORD had commanded Moses. Each clan and family set up camp and marched under their banners exactly as the LORD had instructed them.
