民数記 1:1-54

人口調査

1エジプトを出てから二年目の第二月の一日(太陽暦の四月十五日)、イスラエルの人々がシナイ半島で野営していた時のことです。神は、幕屋(イスラエルの民が神と会う聖所、天幕)の中にいたモーセに告げて言いました。 2-15「氏族、家族ごとに、戦いに出られる二十歳以上の男の人数を調べなさい。あなたとアロンが指図し、それぞれの部族の長に調べさせるのだ。」

各部族の長は次のとおりです。ルベン族からシェデウルの子エリツル、シメオン族からツリシャダイの子シェルミエル、ユダ族からアミナダブの子ナフション、イッサカル族からツアルの子ネタヌエル、ゼブルン族からヘロンの子エリアブ、ヨセフの子エフライム族からアミフデの子エリシャマ、ヨセフの子マナセ族からペダツルの子ガムリエル、ベニヤミン族からギデオニの子アビダン、ダン族からアミシャダイの子アヒエゼル、アシェル族からオクランの子パグイエル、ガド族からデウエルの子エルヤサフ、ナフタリ族からエナンの子アヒラ。 16以上が選ばれた各部族の長です。

17-19その日、モーセとアロンと族長たちは、神の指示どおり、氏族、家族ごとに、兵役に就くことができる二十歳以上の男を全員集めて登録させました。 20-46最終の部族ごとの登録数は次のとおりです。

ルベン族〔ヤコブの長男〕四万六、五〇〇人、シメオン族五万九、三〇〇人、ガド族四万五、六五〇人、ユダ族七万四、六〇〇人、イッサカル族五万四、四〇〇人、ゼブルン族五万七、四〇〇人、エフライム族〔ヨセフの子〕四万五〇〇人、マナセ族〔ヨセフの子〕三万二、二〇〇人、ベニヤミン族三万五、四〇〇人、ダン族六万二、七〇〇人、アシェル族四万一、五〇〇人、ナフタリ族五万三、四〇〇人、計六〇万三、五五〇人。

47この数に、レビ族は含まれていません。 48-49主がモーセに、次のように告げたからです。「レビ族の者は兵役を免除し、人数も調べてはいけない。 50彼らには幕屋を運び、管理する仕事があるからだ。幕屋の近くに住み、 51よそへ移るときはいつでも、天幕を解体し、また組み立てる。ほかの者が手を出してはいけない。幕屋にさわるだけでも死刑に処せられる。 52各部族ごとに集まって宿営し、目じるしにそれぞれの旗を立てなさい。 53レビ族は幕屋の回りに宿営しなさい。彼らがわたしとあなたがたの間に入り、あなたがたが罪を犯したとき、わたしの怒りに触れないですむためだ。」

54人々は、すべて主がモーセに告げたとおりにしました。

Numbers 1:1-54

1And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, 2Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls; 3From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies. 4And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers.

5¶ And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur. 6Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai. 7Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Amminadab. 8Of Issachar; Nethaneel the son of Zuar. 9Of Zebulun; Eliab the son of Helon. 10Of the children of Joseph: of Ephraim; Elishama the son of Ammihud: of Manasseh; Gamaliel the son of Pedahzur. 11Of Benjamin; Abidan the son of Gideoni. 12Of Dan; Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 13Of Asher; Pagiel the son of Ocran. 14Of Gad; Eliasaph the son of Deuel.1.14 Deuel: also called, Reuel 15Of Naphtali; Ahira the son of Enan. 16These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel.

17¶ And Moses and Aaron took these men which are expressed by their names: 18And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls. 19As the LORD commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai. 20And the children of Reuben, Israel’s eldest son, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 21Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Reuben, were forty and six thousand and five hundred.

22¶ Of the children of Simeon, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, those that were numbered of them, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 23Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty and nine thousand and three hundred.

24¶ Of the children of Gad, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 25Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Gad, were forty and five thousand six hundred and fifty.

26¶ Of the children of Judah, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 27Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Judah, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.

28¶ Of the children of Issachar, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 29Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Issachar, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.

30¶ Of the children of Zebulun, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 31Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty and seven thousand and four hundred.

32¶ Of the children of Joseph, namely, of the children of Ephraim, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 33Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand and five hundred.

34¶ Of the children of Manasseh, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 35Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Manasseh, were thirty and two thousand and two hundred.

36¶ Of the children of Benjamin, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 37Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Benjamin, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

38¶ Of the children of Dan, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 39Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Dan, were threescore and two thousand and seven hundred.

40¶ Of the children of Asher, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 41Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Asher, were forty and one thousand and five hundred.

42¶ Of the children of Naphtali, throughout their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war; 43Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

44These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: each one was for the house of his fathers. 45So were all those that were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel; 46Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

47¶ But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them. 48For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying, 49Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel: 50But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle. 51And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death. 52And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts. 53But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony. 54And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
