Numbers 1; Numbers 2

1 The LORD spoke to Moses in the Sinai desert in the meeting tent on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they left the land of Egypt: 2 Take a census of the entire Israelite community by their clans and their households, recording the name of every male, 3 20 years old and above, who is eligible for military service in Israel. These you and Aaron will enlist in their military units. 4 Take with you one man from each tribe who is the head of his household. 5 These are the names of the men who will assist you: from Reuben, Elizur, Shedeur's son; 6 from Simeon, Shelumiel, Zurishaddai's son; 7 from Judah, Nahshon, Amminadab's son; 8 from Issachar, Nethanel, Zuar's son; 9 from Zebulun, Eliab, Helon's son; 10 from Joseph's sons: from Ephraim, Elishama, Ammihud's son; from Manasseh, Gamaliel, Pedahzur's son; 11 from Benjamin, Abidan, Gideoni's son; 12 from Dan, Ahiezer, Ammishaddai's son; 13 from Asher, Pagiel, Ochran's son; 14 from Gad, Eliasaph, Deuel's son; 15 from Naphtali, Ahira, Enan's son. 16 These are the ones appointed from the community, chiefs of their ancestral tribes and leaders of the divisions of Israel. 17 Moses and Aaron took these men who were selected by name 18 and they assembled the entire community on the first day of the second month. They registered them by their clans and their households, recording the name of each male 20 years old and above. 19 Moses enlisted them in the Sinai desert just as the LORD commanded him. 20 There were the descendants of Reuben, Israel's oldest, registered by their clans and their households. Every man 20 years old and above eligible for military service was individually recorded by name. 21 Those enlisted from the tribe of Reuben were 46,500. 22 There were the descendants of Simeon, registered by their clans and their households. Every male 20 years old and above eligible for military service was individually recorded by name. 23 Those enlisted from the tribe of Simeon were 59,300. 24 There were the descendants of Gad, registered by their clans and their households. The men 20 years old and above eligible for military service were recorded by name. 25 Those enlisted from the tribe of Gad were 45,650. 26 There were the descendants of Judah, registered by their clans and their households. The men 20 years old and above eligible for military service were recorded by name. 27 Those enlisted from the tribe of Judah were 74,600. 28 There were the descendants of Issachar, registered by their clans and their households.

They will carry the dwelling and all its equipment, perform its religious ceremonies, and camp around the dwelling. 51 When it's time to break camp, the Levites will take down the dwelling; and when it's time to make camp, the Levites will set up the dwelling. Any other person who approaches will be put to death. 52 The Israelites will camp each in their own place under the banner of their own military unit. 53 But the Levites will camp around the covenant dwelling so that God's anger will not strike the Israelite community. The Levites will guard the covenant dwelling. 54 The Israelites did everything exactly as the LORD commanded Moses.
