New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 A year after Israel’s departure from Egypt, the Lord spoke to Moses in the Tabernacle in the wilderness of Sinai. On the first day of the second month of that year 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 “From the whole community of Israel, record the names of all the warriors by their clans and families. List 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 able to go to war. You and Aaron must register the troops, 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  and you will be assisted by one family leader from each tribe. 4 One man from each tribe, each the head of his family, is to help you.
5 “These are the tribes and the names of the leaders who will assist you: Reuben Elizur son of Shedeur 5 These are the names of the men who are to assist you: from Reuben, Elizur son of Shedeur;
6 Simeon Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai 6 from Simeon, Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai;
7 Judah Nahshon son of Amminadab 7 from Judah, Nahshon son of Amminadab;
8 Issachar Nethanel son of Zuar 8 from Issachar, Nethanel son of Zuar;
9 Zebulun Eliab son of Helon 9 from Zebulun, Eliab son of Helon;
10 Ephraim son of Joseph Elishama son of Ammihud Manasseh son of Joseph Gamaliel son of Pedahzur 10 from the sons of Joseph: from Ephraim, Elishama son of Ammihud; from Manasseh, Gamaliel son of Pedahzur;
11 Benjamin Abidan son of Gideoni 11 from Benjamin, Abidan son of Gideoni;
12 Dan Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai 12 from Dan, Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai;

14 Gad Eliasaph son of Deuel 14 from Gad, Eliasaph son of Deuel;
15 Naphtali Ahira son of Enan 15 from Naphtali, Ahira son of Enan."
16  These are the chosen leaders of the community, the leaders of their ancestral tribes, the heads of the clans of Israel.” 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 Moses and Aaron called together these chosen leaders,  17 Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been given,
18 and they assembled the whole community of Israel on that very day. All the people were registered according to their ancestry by their clans and families. The men of Israel who were twenty years old or older were listed one by one, 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 just as the Lord had commanded Moses. So Moses recorded their names in the wilderness of Sinai. 19 as the LORD commanded Moses. And so he counted them in the Desert of Sinai:

43 43 The number from the tribe of Naphtali was 53,400.
44 These were the men registered by Moses and Aaron and the twelve leaders of Israel, all listed according to their ancestral descent. 44 These were the men counted by Moses and Aaron and the twelve leaders of Israel, each one representing his family.
45 They were registered by families—all the men of Israel who were twenty years old or older and able to go to war. 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 The total number was 603,550. 46 The total number was 603,550.
47 But this total did not include the Levites.  47 The families of the tribe of Levi, however, were not counted along with the others.
48 For the Lord had said to Moses, 48 The LORD had said to Moses:
49 “Do not include the tribe of Levi in the registration; do not count them with the rest of the Israelites. 49 "You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites.
50 Put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with all its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and all its furnishings as you travel, and they must take care of it and 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 Whenever it is time for the Tabernacle to move, the Levites will take it down. And when it is time to stop, they will set it up again. But any unauthorized person who goes too near the Tabernacle must 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 Each tribe of Israel will camp in a designated area with its own family 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 Levites will camp around the Tabernacle of the Covenant to protect the community of Israel from the Lord’s anger. The Levites are responsible to stand guard around the Tabernacle.” 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 So the Israelites did everything just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 54 The Israelites did all this just as the LORD commanded Moses.
