A year after Israel’s departure from Egypt, the Lord spoke to Moses in the Tabernaclea in the wilderness of Sinai. On the first day of the second monthb of that year he said,
“From the whole community of Israel, record the names of all the warriors by their clans and families. List all the men
twenty years old or older who are able to go to war. You and Aaron must register the troops,
and you will be assisted by one family leader from each tribe.
“These are the tribes and the names of the leaders who will assist you: Reuben Elizur son of Shedeur
Simeon Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai
