Chapter 1

1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first of the second month, in the second year of their going out of the land of Egypt, saying: 2`Take ye up the sum of all the company of the sons of Israel by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names -- every male by their polls; 3from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host in Israel, ye do number them by their hosts, thou and Aaron; 4and with you there is a man for a tribe, each is a head to the house of his fathers. 5`And these [are] the names of the men who stand with you: `For Reuben -- Elizur son of Shedeur. 6`For Simeon -- Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai. 7`For Judah -- Nahshon son of Amminadab. 8`For Issachar -- Nathaneel son of Zuar. 9`For Zebulun -- Eliab son of Helon. 10`For the sons of Joseph -- for Ephraim: Elishama son of Ammihud: for Manasseh -- Gamaliel son of Pedahzur. 11`For Benjamin -- Abidan son of Gideoni. 12`For Dan -- Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai. 13`For Asher -- Pagiel son of Ocran. 14`For Gad -- Eliasaph son of Deuel. 15`For Naphtali -- Ahira son of Enan.` 16These [are] those called of the company, princes of the tribes of their fathers;

and he numbereth them in the wilderness of Sinai. 20And the sons of Reuben, Israel`s first-born -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, by their polls, every male from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 21their numbered ones, for the tribe of Reuben, are six and forty thousand and five hundred. 22Of the sons of Simeon -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, its numbered ones in the number of names, by their polls, every male from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 23their numbered ones, for the tribe of Simeon, [are] nine and fifty thousand and three hundred. 24Of the sons of Gad -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 25their numbered ones, for the tribe of Gad, [are] five and forty thousand and six hundred and fifty. 26Of the sons of Judah -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 27their numbered ones, for the tribe of Judah, [are] four and seventy thousand and six hundred. 28Of the sons of Issachar -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 29their numbered ones, for the tribe of Issachar, [are] four and fifty thousand and four hundred. 30Of the sons of Zebulun -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 31their numbered ones, for the tribe of Zebulun, [are] seven and fifty thousand and four hundred. 32Of the sons of Joseph -- of the sons of Ephraim -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 33their numbered ones, for the tribe of Ephraim, [are] forty thousand and five hundred. 34Of the sons of Manasseh -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 35their numbered ones, for the tribe of Manasseh, [are] two and thirty thousand and two hundred. 36Of the sons of Benjamin -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 37their numbered ones, for the tribe of Benjamin, [are] five and thirty thousand and four hundred. 38Of the sons of Dan -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 39their numbered ones, for the tribe of Dan, [are] two and sixty thousand and seven hundred. 40Of the sons of Asher -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 41their numbered ones, for the tribe of Asher, [are] one and forty thousand and five hundred. 42[Of] the sons of Naphtali -- their births, by their families, by the house of their fathers, in the number of names, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host -- 43their numbered ones, for the tribe of Naphtali, [are] three and fifty thousand and four hundred. 44These [are] those numbered, whom Moses numbered -- Aaron also, and the princes of Israel, twelve men -- each for the house of his fathers, they have been. 45And they are, all those numbered of the sons of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from a son of twenty years and upward, every one going out to the host in Israel, 46yea, all those numbered are six hundred thousand, and three thousand, and five hundred and fifty. 47And the Levites, for the tribe of their fathers, have not numbered themselves in their midst, 48seeing Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 49`Only, the tribe of Levi thou dost not number, and their sum thou dost not take up in the midst of the sons of Israel; 50and thou, appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its vessels, and over all that it hath; they bear the tabernacle, and all its vessels, and they serve it; and round about the tabernacle they encamp. 51`And in the journeying of the tabernacle, the Levites take it down, and in the encamping of the tabernacle, the Levites raise it up; and the stranger who is coming near is put to death.` 52And the sons of Israel have encamped, each by his camp, and each by his standard, by their hosts; 53and the Levites encamp round about the tabernacle of the testimony; and there is no wrath on the company of the sons of Israel, and the Levites have kept the charge of the tabernacle of the testimony. 54And the sons of Israel do according to all that Jehovah hath commanded Moses; so they have done.
