those enrolled of the tribe of Asher were forty-one thousand five hundred.
The descendants of Naphtali, their lineage, in their clans, by their ancestral houses, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, everyone able to go to war:
those enrolled of the tribe of Naphtali were fifty-three thousand four hundred.
These are those who were enrolled, whom Moses and Aaron enrolled with the help of the leaders of Israel, twelve men, each representing his ancestral house.
So the whole number of the Israelites, by their ancestral houses, from twenty years old and upward, everyone able to go to war in Israel—
their whole number was six hundred three thousand five hundred fifty.
The Levites, however, were not numbered by their ancestral tribe along with them.
The Lord had said to Moses:
Only the tribe of Levi you shall not enroll, and you shall not take a census of them with the other Israelites.
Rather you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the covenant, a and over all its equipment, and over all that belongs to it; they are to carry the tabernacle and all its equipment, and they shall tend it, and shall camp around the tabernacle.
When the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up. And any outsider who comes near shall be put to death.
