Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 On the first day of the second month in the second year after the people of Israel left Egypt, the Lord spoke to Moses there in the Tent of his presence in the Sinai Desert. 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 "You and Aaron are to take a census of the people of Israel by clans and families. List 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 or older who are fit for military service. 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 Ask one clan chief from each tribe to help you." 4 One man from each tribe, each the head of his family, is to help you.
5 These are the men, leaders within their tribes, who were chosen from the community for this work: 5 These are the names of the men who are to assist you: from Reuben, Elizur son of Shedeur;
17 With the help of these twelve men Moses and Aaron 17 from Simeon, Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai;
18 called together the whole community on the first day of the second month and registered all the people by clans and families. The names of all the men twenty years old or older were recorded and counted, 18 from Judah, Nahshon son of Amminadab;
19 as the Lord had commanded. In the Sinai Desert, Moses registered the people. 19 from Issachar, Nethanel son of Zuar;
20 The men twenty years old or older who were fit for military service were registered by name according to clan and family, beginning with the tribe of Reuben, Jacob's oldest son. The totals were as follows: 20 from Zebulun, Eliab son of Helon;
47 The Levites were not registered with the other tribes, 47 from the sons of Joseph: from Ephraim, Elishama son of Ammihud; from Manasseh, Gamaliel son of Pedahzur;
48 because the Lord had said to Moses, 48 from Benjamin, Abidan son of Gideoni;
49 "When you take a census of the men fit for military service, do not include the tribe of Levi. 49 from Dan, Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai;
50 Instead, put the Levites in charge of the Tent of my presence and all its equipment. They shall carry it and its equipment, serve in it, and set up their camp around it. 50 from Asher, Pagiel son of Ocran;
51 Whenever you move your camp, the Levites shall take the Tent down and set it up again at each new campsite. Anyone else who comes near the Tent shall be put to death. 51 from Gad, Eliasaph son of Deuel;
52 The rest of the Israelites shall set up camp, company by company, each man with his own group and under his own banner. 52 from Naphtali, Ahira son of Enan."
53 But the Levites shall camp around the Tent to guard it, so that no one may come near and cause my anger to strike the community of Israel." 53 These were the men appointed from the community, the leaders of their ancestral tribes. They were the heads of the clans of Israel.
54 So the people of Israel did everything that the Lord had commanded Moses. 54 Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been given,
18 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 19 as the LORD commanded Moses. And so he counted them in the Desert of Sinai:
20 20 From the descendants of Reuben the firstborn son of Israel: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, one by one, according to the records of their clans and families.
21 21 The number from the tribe of Reuben was 46,500.
22 22 From the descendants of Simeon: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were counted and listed by name, one by one, according to the records of their clans and families.
23 23 The number from the tribe of Simeon was 59,300.
24 24 From the descendants of Gad: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
25 25 The number from the tribe of Gad was 45,650.
26 26 From the descendants of Judah: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
27 27 The number from the tribe of Judah was 74,600.
28 28 From the descendants of Issachar: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
29 29 The number from the tribe of Issachar was 54,400.
30 30 From the descendants of Zebulun: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
31 31 The number from the tribe of Zebulun was 57,400.
32 32 From the sons of Joseph: From the descendants of Ephraim: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
33 33 The number from the tribe of Ephraim was 40,500.
34 34 From the descendants of Manasseh: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
35 35 The number from the tribe of Manasseh was 32,200.
36 36 From the descendants of Benjamin: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
37 37 The number from the tribe of Benjamin was 35,400.
38 38 From the descendants of Dan: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
39 39 The number from the tribe of Dan was 62,700.
40 40 From the descendants of Asher: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
41 41 The number from the tribe of Asher was 41,500.
42 42 From the descendants of Naphtali: All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families.
43 43 The number from the tribe of Naphtali was 53,400.
44 44 These were the men counted by Moses and Aaron and the twelve leaders of Israel, each one representing his family.
45 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 46 The total number was 603,550.
47 47 The families of the tribe of Levi, however, were not counted along with the others.
48 48 The LORD had said to Moses:
49 49 "You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites.
50 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 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 52 The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each man in his own camp under his own standard.
53 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 54 The Israelites did all this just as the LORD commanded Moses.
