32 In summary, the troops of Israel listed by their families totaled 603,550. 32 These are the Israelites, counted according to their families. All those in the camps, by their divisions, number 603,550.
33 But as the Lord had commanded, the Levites were not included in this registration. 33 The Levites, however, were not counted along with the other Israelites, as the LORD commanded Moses.
34 So the people of Israel did everything as the Lord had commanded Moses. Each clan and family set up camp and marched under their banners exactly as the Lord had instructed them. 34 So the Israelites did everything the LORD commanded Moses; that is the way they encamped under their standards, and that is the way they set out, each with his clan and family.
