Numbers 1

GNT 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, NIV 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: GNT 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 NIV 2 "Take a census of the whole Israelite community by their clans and families, listing every man by name, one by one. GNT 3 twenty years old or older who are fit for military service. NIV 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. GNT 4 Ask one clan chief from each tribe to help you." NIV 4 One man from each tribe, each the head of his family, is to help you. GNT 5 These are the men, leaders within their tribes, who were chosen from the community for this work: NIV 5 These are the names of the men who are to assist you: from Reuben, Elizur son of Shedeur; GNT 17 With the help of these twelve men Moses and Aaron NIV 17 Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been given, GNT 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, NIV 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, GNT 19 as the Lord had commanded. In the Sinai Desert, Moses registered the people. NIV 19 as the LORD commanded Moses. And so he counted them in the Desert of Sinai: GNT 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: NIV 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. GNT 47 The Levites were not registered with the other tribes, NIV 47 The families of the tribe of Levi, however, were not counted along with the others. GNT 48 because the Lord had said to Moses, NIV 48 The LORD had said to Moses: GNT 49 "When you take a census of the men fit for military service, do not include the tribe of Levi. NIV 49 "You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites. GNT 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. NIV 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. GNT 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. NIV 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. GNT 52 The rest of the Israelites shall set up camp, company by company, each man with his own group and under his own banner. NIV 52 The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each man in his own camp under his own standard. GNT 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." NIV 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." GNT 54 So the people of Israel did everything that the Lord had commanded Moses. NIV 54 The Israelites did all this just as the LORD commanded Moses.
