Chapter 26

1After the blood of the guilty was shed, the Lord said to Moses and to Eleazar the son of Aaron, the priest: 2Number the whole sum of the children of Israel from twenty years old and upward, by their houses and kindreds, all that are able to go forth to war. 3Moses therefore and Eleazar the priest, being in the plains of Moab upon the Jordan over against Jericho, spoke to them that were 4From twenty years old and upward, as the Lord had commanded: and this is the number of them: 5Ruben the firstborn of Israel. His sons were Henoch, of whom is the family of the Henochites: and Phallu, of whom is the family of the Phalluites: 6And Hesron, of whom is the family of the Hesronites: and Charmi, of whom is the family of the Charmites. 7These are the families of the stock of Ruben: whose number was found to be forty-three thousand seven hundred and thirty. 8The son of Phallu was Eliab. 9His sons, were Namuel and Dathan and Abiron. These are Dathan and Abiron the princes of the people, that rose against Moses and Aaron in the sedition of Core, when they rebelled against the Lord: 10And the earth opening her mouth swallowed up Core, many others dying, when the fire burned two hundred and fifty men.

And none remained of them, but Caleb the son of Jephone, and Josue the son of Nun.
