VIN(i) 1 After the plague the LORD said to Moses and Eleazar son of the priest Aaron: 2 Let all the children of Israel be numbered, by the names of their fathers' families, all those of twenty years old and over who are able to go to war in Israel. 3 And Moses and Eleazar the priest spoke in Araboth of Moab at the Jordan by Jericho, saying, 4 "Take a census of those at least twenty years old, as the LORD commanded Moses." These are the Israelites who came from Egypt: 5 Reuben, firstborn of Israel, and the sons of Reuben:through Hanoch, the Hanochite family; through Pallu the Palluite family;" 6 through Hezron the Hezronite family; through Carmi the Carmite family. 7 8 The son of Phallu was Eliab. 9 The children of Eliab: Nemuel, Dathan, and Abiram. These are the same Dathan and Abiram who were appointed of the community, who rebelled against Moses and Aaron in the company of Korah, when they rebelled against the LORD, 10 And the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that band died, when the fire devoured the two hundred and fifty men; and they became a sign. 11 The children of Korah, however, did not die. 12 The sons of Simeon by their families:through Nemuel the Nemuelite family; through Jamin the Jaminite family; through Jachin the Jachinite family; 13 through Zerah the Zerahite family; through Shaul the Shaulite family. 14 These were the clans of the Simeonites, twenty-two thousand two hundred. 15 The sons of Gad by their families:through Zephon the Zephonite family; through Haggi the Haggite family; through Shuni the Shunite family; 16 through Ozni the Oznite family; through Eri the Erite family; 17 through Arod the Arodite family; through Areli the Arelite family. 18 These are the families of Gad, of which the whole number was forty thousand five hundred. 19 Er and Onan were sons of Judah, but they died in Canaan. 20 The sons of Judah were, by their families:through Shelah the Shelanite family; through Perez the Perezite family; through Zerah the Zerahite family. 21 The sons of Perez were:through Hezron the Hezronite family; through Hamul the Hamulite family. 22 These are the families of Judah as they were numbered, seventy-six thousand, five hundred. 23 The sons of Issachar by their families:through Tola the Tolaite family; through Puah the Puanite family; 24 through Jashub the Jashubite family; through Shimron the Shimronite family. 25 These are the kindreds of Issachar, whose number was sixty-four thousand three hundred. 26 The sons of Zebulun by their families:through Sered the Seredite family; through Elon the Elonite family; through Jahleel the Jahleelite family; 27 These are the kindreds of Zabulon, whose number was sixty thousand five hundred. 28 The sons of Joseph by their kindred, Manasses and Ephraim. 29 The sons of Manasseh were:through Machir the Machirite family, and Machir begat Gilead; through Gilead the Gileadite family. 30 These were the sons of Gilead:through Jezer the Jezerite family; through Helek the Helekite family; 31 through Asriel the Asrielite family; through Shechem the Shechemite family; 32 through Shemida the Shemidaite family; through Hepher the Hepherite family. 33 Zelophehad, son of Hepher, had no sons-only daughters. Their names were Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. 34 These are the kindreds of Manasseh, in number fifty two thousand and seven hundred. 35 These are the sons of Ephraim according to their families: of Shuthelah, the Shuthelahite family; of Becher, the Becherite family; of Tahan, the Tahanite family. 36 And these were the descendants of Shuthelah: of Eran, the family of the Eranites. 37 These are the families of Ephraim as they were numbered, thirty-two thousand, five hundred. These are the sons of Joseph by their families. 38 The sons of Benjamin by their families:through Bela the Belaite family; through Ashbel the Ashbelite family; through Ahiram the Ahiramite family; 39 through Shupham the Shuphamite family; through Hupham the Huphamite family. 40 The sons of Bela were Ard and Naaman:through Ard the Ardite family; through Naaman the Naamite family. 41 These are the sons of Benjamin by their kindreds, whose number was forty-five thousand six hundred. 42 These were the sons of Dan by their families:through Shuham the Shuhamite family. These were the families of Dan by their families. 43 All were Suhamites, whose number was sixty-four thousand four hundred. 44 The sons of Asher by their families:through Jimna the Jimnite family; through Ishvi the Ishvite family; through Beriah the Beriite family, 45 through sons of Beriah, through Heber the Heberite family; through Malchiel the Malchielite family. 46 Asher had a daughter named Serah. 47 These are the kindreds of Asher, in number fifty three thousand and four hundred. 48 The sons of Naphtali by their families:through Jahzeel the Jahzeelite family; through Guni the Gunite family; 49 through Jezer the Jezerite family; through Shillem the Shillemite family. 50 These were the families of Naphtali. The total number of men was forty-five thousand four hundred. 51 52 the LORD said to Moses: 53 The land shall be divided to those for an inheritance, according to the number of names. 54 to many, greaten the inheritance and to few, diminish the inheritance: give every man his inheritance according to the mouth of those mustered by him. 55 But the land shall be divided by lot. They shall inherit according to the names of the tribes of their fathers. 56 Their inheritance must be divided according to the lot between the larger and smaller groups." 57 These were the mustered ones of the Levites by their families:through Gershon the Gershonite family; through Kohath the Kohathite family; through Merari the Merarite family. 58 These were the families of Levi: the Libnite family, the Hebronite family, the Mahlite family, the Mushite family, and the Korahite family. Kohath was the ancestor of Amram. 59 The name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, a descendant of Levi, who was born in Egypt. She gave birth to Amram's children: Aaron, Moses, and their sister Miriam. 60 Aaron was the father of Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 61 Yet Nadab and Abihu died when they offered alien fire before the LORD. 62 The total number of all the Levite males at least one month old was twenty-three thousand. They were not counted along with the other Israelites, because they were given no land of their own. 63 These were the ones counted by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who counted the Israelites on the desert-plateau of Moab on the Jordan across Jericho. 64 And among these there was not a man of those counted by Moses and Aaron the priest, who counted the Israelites in the desert of Sinai. 65 for the LORD had said to them that they would die, yea die in the wilderness. And not a man of them was left save Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
