The LORD said to Moses in the Desert of Sinai,
“Count the Levites by their families and clans. Count every male a month old or more.”
So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the word of the LORD.
These were the names of the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath and Merari.
These were the names of the Gershonite clans: Libni and Shimei.
