Numbers 1

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,

Take 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;

From 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.

And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers.

And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur.

Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

Of Judah; Nahshon the son of Amminadab.

Of Issachar; Nethaneel the son of Zuar.

17 And Moses and Aaron took these men which are expressed by their names:

18 And 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.

19 As the Lord commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.

20 And 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;

21 Those 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;

23 Those 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;

25 Those 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;

27 Those 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;

29 Those 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;

31 Those 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;

33 Those 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;

35 Those 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;

37 Those 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;

39 Those 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;

41 Those 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;

43 Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

44 These 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.

45 So 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;

46 Even 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.

48 For the Lord had spoken unto Moses, saying,

49 Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:

50 But 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.

51 And 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.

52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.

53 But 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.

54 And the children of Israel did according to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so did they.

Numeri 1

De telling

1Op de eerste dag van de tweede maand in het tweede jaar na de uittocht uit Egypte, terwijl Mozes zich bevond in de tabernakel in het kamp van Israël in de woestijn op het schiereiland Sinaï, gaf de Here hem de volgende opdracht:

2-15 ‘Houd een telling onder de mannen van twintig jaar en ouder die geschikt zijn om in het leger van Israël te vechten, ingedeeld naar hun stammen en families. U en Aäron hebben de leiding van de telling en één man uit elke stam zal u assisteren: voor de stam Ruben: Elisur, zoon van Sedeür. Voor de stam Simeon: Selumiël, zoon van Surisaddai. Voor de stam Juda: Nachson, zoon van Amminadab. Voor de stam Issachar: Netanel, zoon van Suar. Voor de stam Zebulon: Eliab, zoon van Chelon. Voor de stam Efraïm, zoon van Jozef: Elisama, zoon van Ammihud. Voor de stam Manasse, zoon van Jozef: Gamliël, zoon van Pedasur. Voor de stam Benjamin: Abidan, zoon van Gidoni. Voor de stam Dan: Achiëzer, zoon van Ammisaddai. Voor de stam Aser: Pagiël, zoon van Ochran. Voor de stam Gad: Eljasaf, zoon van Deüel. Voor de stam Naftali: Achira, zoon van Enan.’

16 Dit zijn de leiders van de stammen die uit het volk werden gekozen. 17-19 Diezelfde dag nog riepen Mozes, Aäron en de bovengenoemde leiders alle mannen van twintig jaar en ouder bijeen om zich te laten tellen. De mannen stelden zich op volgens stam en familie, zoals de Here Mozes had opgedragen, en hij telde hen.

20-46 Hier volgt het resultaat van de telling: de stam Ruben: 46.500; de stam Simeon: 59.300; de stam Gad: 45.650; de stam Juda: 74.600; de stam Issachar: 54.400; de stam Zebulon: 57.400; de stam Efraïm (zoon van Jozef): 40.500; de stam Manasse (zoon van Jozef): 32.200; de stam Benjamin: 35.400; de stam Dan: 62.700; de stam Aser: 41.500; de stam Naftali: 53.400; totaal: 603.550.

47-49 Bij dit totaal zijn de Levieten niet inbegrepen, want de Here had tegen Mozes gezegd: ‘Houd de stam Levi apart en tel hun aantal niet, 50 want zij zijn aangewezen voor het werk in de tabernakel en zorgen ook voor de verplaatsing ervan. Zij moeten dicht bij de tabernakel wonen 51 en als hij moet worden verplaatst, moeten de Levieten hem afbreken en weer opbouwen. Iemand anders die de tabernakel aanraakt, moet ter dood worden gebracht.

52 Elke stam van Israël zal een eigen plaats in het kamp hebben met een eigen banier. 53 De tenten van de Levieten zullen rondom de tabernakel worden gegroepeerd als een muur tussen het volk Israël en Gods grote toorn, om hen te beschermen tegen zijn vreselijke toorn over hun zonden.’ 54 Zo werden de opdrachten die de Here Mozes had gegeven, uitgevoerd.
