1 ADONAI spoke to Moshe in the Sinai Desert, in the tent of meeting, on the first day of the second month of the second year after they had left the land of Egypt. He said, 1 The LORD spoke to Moses in the Tent of Meeting in the Desert of Sinai on the first day of the second month of the second year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. He said:
2 "Take a census of the entire assembly of the people of Isra'el, by clans and families. Record the names of all the men 2 "Take a census of the whole Israelite community by their clans and families, listing every man by name, one by one.
3 twenty years old and over who are subject to military service in Isra'el. You and Aharon are to enumerate them company by company. 3 You and Aaron are to number by their divisions all the men in Israel twenty years old or more who are able to serve in the army.
4 Take with you from each tribe someone who is head of a clan. 4 One man from each tribe, each the head of his family, is to help you.
5 These are the men to take with you: From Re'uven, Elitzur the son of Sh'de'ur; 5 These are the names of the men who are to assist you: from Reuben, Elizur son of Shedeur;

16 These were the ones called from the assembly, the chiefs of their fathers'clans and heads of thousands in Isra'el. 16 These were the men appointed from the community, the leaders of their ancestral tribes. They were the heads of the clans of Israel.
17 So Moshe and Aharon took these men who had been designated by name; 17 Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been given,
18 and, on the first day of the second month, they gathered the whole assembly to state their genealogies by families and clans and recorded the names of all those twenty years old and over, as well as their total numbers. 18 and they called the whole community together on the first day of the second month. The people indicated their ancestry by their clans and families, and the men twenty years old or more were listed by name, one by one,
19 Moshe counted them in the Sinai Desert, just as ADONAI had ordered him. 19 as the LORD commanded Moses. And so he counted them in the Desert of Sinai:

45 counted the people of Isra'el by their clans, those twenty years old and over, eligible for military service in Isra'el; 45 All the Israelites twenty years old or more who were able to serve in Israel's army were counted according to their families.
46 and the grand total came to 603,550. 46 The total number was 603,550.
47 But those who were L'vi'im, according to the clan of their fathers, were not counted in this census; 47 The families of the tribe of Levi, however, were not counted along with the others.
48 because ADONAI had told Moshe, 48 The LORD had said to Moses:
49 "Do not include the clan of Levi when you take the census of the people of Isra'el. 49 "You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites.
50 Instead, give the L'vi'im charge over the tabernacle of the testimony, its equipment and everything else connected with it. They are to carry the tabernacle and all its equipment, serve in it and set up their camp around it. 50 Instead, appoint the Levites to be in charge of the tabernacle of the Testimony--over all its furnishings and everything belonging to it. They are to carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings; they are to take care of it and encamp around it.
51 When the tabernacle is to be moved onward, it is the L'vi'im who are to take it down and set it up in the new location; anyone else who involves himself is to be put to death. 51 Whenever the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down, and whenever the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites shall do it. Anyone else who goes near it shall be put to death.
52 The rest of Isra'el are to set up camp, company by company, each man with his own banner. 52 The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each man in his own camp under his own standard.
53 But the L'vi'im are to camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that no anger will come upon the assembly of the people of Isra'el. The L'vi'im are to be in charge of the tabernacle of the testimony." 53 The Levites, however, are to set up their tents around the tabernacle of the Testimony so that wrath will not fall on the Israelite community. The Levites are to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the Testimony."
54 This is what the people of Isra'el did - they did everything that ADONAI had ordered Moshe. 54 The Israelites did all this just as the LORD commanded Moses.
