"Take the Levites in place of all the firstborn of Israel, and the livestock of the Levites in place of their livestock. The Levites are to be mine.1 I am the LORD.246
To redeem3 the 273 firstborn Israelites who exceed the number of the Levites,
collect five shekelsa4 for each one, according to the sanctuary shekel,5 which weighs twenty gerahs.648
Give the money for the redemption7 of the additional Israelites to Aaron and his sons."849
So Moses collected the redemption money9 from those who exceeded the number redeemed by the Levites.
From the firstborn of the Israelites10 he collected silver weighing "1,365 shekels,b11 according to the sanctuary shekel.
Moses gave the redemption money to Aaron and his sons, as he was commanded by the word of the LORD.
