民數記 1

以色列的第一次人口統計

1以色列人離開埃及後第二年的二月一日,耶和華在西奈曠野的會幕中對摩西說: 「你要按以色列人的宗族和家系統計人口,登記所有男子的姓名。 你和亞倫要一隊一隊地統計以色列人中二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子。 每一支派要有一個人來協助你們。他們都是各宗族的族長, 名單如下。

「呂便支派示丟珥的兒子以利蘇、 西緬支派蘇利沙代的兒子示路蔑、 猶大支派亞米拿達的兒子拿順、 以薩迦支派蘇押的兒子拿坦業、 西布倫支派希倫的兒子以利押、 10 約瑟的後裔——以法蓮支派亞米忽的兒子以利沙瑪和瑪拿西支派比大蘇的兒子迦瑪列、 11 便雅憫支派基多尼的兒子亞比但、 12 但支派亞米沙代的兒子亞希以謝、 13 亞設支派俄蘭的兒子帕結、 14 迦得支派丟珥的兒子以利雅薩、 15 拿弗他利支派以南的兒子亞希拉。」

16 他們都是從會眾中選出來的,是各支派的首領,也是以色列的將領。

17 摩西和亞倫在這些族長的幫助下, 18 在二月一日招聚全體會眾,按照宗族和家系統計人口,登記所有二十歲以上的男子。 19 摩西照耶和華的吩咐在西奈曠野統計人口。

20-21 以色列的長子呂便支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有四萬六千五百人。

22-23 西緬支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有五萬九千三百人。

24-25 迦得支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有四萬五千六百五十人。

26-27 猶大支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有七萬四千六百人。

28-29 以薩迦支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有五萬四千四百人。

32-33 約瑟的後裔中,以法蓮支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有四萬零五百人。

34-35 瑪拿西支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有三萬二千二百人。

36-37 便雅憫支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有三萬五千四百人。

38-39 但支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有六萬二千七百人。

40-41 亞設支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有四萬一千五百人。

42-43 拿弗他利支派中,二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來,共有五萬三千四百人。

44 以上就是摩西、亞倫和各代表自己家族的十二位以色列首領所統計的男子人數。 45 這樣,以色列人中二十歲以上、有作戰能力的男子按宗族、家系和姓名一一被登記下來, 46 共有六十萬零三千五百五十人。 47 其中不包括利未人, 48 因為耶和華曾經對摩西說: 49 「你不要統計利未支派的人數,不要把他們的人數算在以色列人中。 50 你要派利未人負責搬運和照料放約櫃的聖幕及其所有器具,他們要在聖幕四圍紮營。 51 在遷移的時候,利未人要負責拆卸和支搭聖幕;其他人若走近聖幕,必被處死。 52 以色列人要按照他們的隊伍各自紮營,各歸本旗。 53 但利未人要在放約櫃的聖幕四周紮營,防止以色列人觸怒耶和華。利未人負責看守聖幕。」 54 以色列人就按耶和華對摩西的吩咐行了。

Numbers 1

The Census of Israel’s Warriors

1Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tent of meeting, on the first of the second month, in the second year after they had come out of the land of Egypt, saying, “Take a [a]census of all the congregation of the sons of Israel, by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, every male, head by head from twenty years old and upward, whoever is able to go out to war in Israel, you and Aaron shall [b]number them by their armies. With you, moreover, there shall be a man of each tribe, each one head of his father’s household. These then are the names of the men who shall stand with you: of Reuben, Elizur the son of Shedeur; of Simeon, Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai; of Judah, Nahshon the son of Amminadab; of Issachar, Nethanel the son of Zuar; of Zebulun, Eliab the son of Helon; 10 of the sons of Joseph: of Ephraim, Elishama the son of Ammihud; of Manasseh, Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur; 11 of Benjamin, Abidan the son of Gideoni; 12 of Dan, Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai; 13 of Asher, Pagiel the son of Ochran; 14 of Gad, Eliasaph the son of Deuel; 15 of Naphtali, Ahira the son of Enan. 16 These are they who were called of the congregation, the leaders of their fathers’ tribes; they were the heads of [c]divisions of Israel.”

17 So Moses and Aaron took these men who had been designated by name, 18 and they assembled all the congregation together on the first of the second month. Then they registered by ancestry in their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, head by head, 19 just as the Lord had commanded Moses. So he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.

20 Now the sons of Reuben, Israel’s firstborn, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, head by head, every male from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 21 their numbered men of the tribe of Reuben were 46,500.

22 Of the sons of Simeon, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, their numbered men, according to the number of names, head by head, every male from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 23 their numbered men of the tribe of Simeon were 59,300.

24 Of the sons of Gad, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 25 their numbered men of the tribe of Gad were 45,650.

26 Of the sons of Judah, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 27 their numbered men of the tribe of Judah were 74,600.

28 Of the sons of Issachar, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 29 their numbered men of the tribe of Issachar were 54,400.

30 Of the sons of Zebulun, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 31 their numbered men of the tribe of Zebulun were 57,400.

32 Of the sons of Joseph, namely, of the sons of Ephraim, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 33 their numbered men of the tribe of Ephraim were 40,500.

34 Of the sons of Manasseh, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 35 their numbered men of the tribe of Manasseh were 32,200.

36 Of the sons of Benjamin, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 37 their numbered men of the tribe of Benjamin were 35,400.

38 Of the sons of Dan, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 39 their numbered men of the tribe of Dan were 62,700.

40 Of the sons of Asher, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 41 their numbered men of the tribe of Asher were 41,500.

42 Of the sons of Naphtali, their genealogical registration by their families, by their fathers’ households, according to the number of names, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war, 43 their numbered men of the tribe of Naphtali were 53,400.

44 These are the ones who were numbered, whom Moses and Aaron numbered, with the leaders of Israel, twelve men, each of whom was of his father’s household. 45 So all the numbered men of the sons of Israel by their fathers’ households, from twenty years old and upward, whoever was able to go out to war in Israel, 46 even all the numbered men were 603,550.

Levites Exempted

47 The Levites, however, were not numbered among them by their fathers’ tribe. 48 For the Lord had spoken to Moses, saying, 49 “Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, nor shall you take their [d]census among the sons of Israel. 50 But you shall appoint the Levites over the [e]tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its furnishings and over all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the [f]tabernacle. 51 So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But the [g]layman who comes near shall be put to death. 52 The sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies. 53 But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.” 54 Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the Lord had commanded Moses, so they did.
