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.

Números 1:1-54

O Recenseamento

1O Senhor falou a Moisés na Tenda do Encontro, no deserto do Sinai, no primeiro dia do segundo mês do segundo ano, depois que os israelitas saíram do Egito. Ele disse: 2“Façam um recenseamento de toda a comunidade de Israel, pelos seus clãs e famílias, alistando todos os homens, um a um, pelo nome. 3Você e Arão contarão todos os homens que possam servir no exército, de vinte anos para cima, organizados segundo as suas divisões. 4Um homem de cada tribo, o chefe dos grupos de famílias, deverá ajudá-los.

5“Estes são os nomes dos homens que os ajudarão:

“de Rúben, Elizur, filho de Sedeur;

6de Simeão, Selumiel, filho de Zurisadai;

7de Judá, Naassom, filho de Aminadabe;

8de Issacar, Natanael, filho de Zuar;

9de Zebulom, Eliabe, filho de Helom;

10dos filhos de José:

de Efraim, Elisama, filho de Amiúde;

de Manassés, Gamaliel, filho de Pedazur;

11de Benjamim, Abidã, filho de Gideoni;

12de Dã, Aieser, filho de Amisadai;

13de Aser, Pagiel, filho de Ocrã;

15de Naftali, Aira, filho de Enã”.

16Foram esses os escolhidos da comunidade, líderes das tribos dos seus antepassados, chefes dos clãs de Israel.

17Moisés e Arão reuniram os homens nomeados 18e convocaram toda a comunidade no primeiro dia do segundo mês. Os homens de vinte anos para cima inscreveram-se conforme os seus clãs e as suas famílias, um a um, pelo nome, 19conforme o Senhor tinha ordenado a Moisés. E assim ele os contou no deserto do Sinai, na seguinte ordem:

20Dos descendentes de Rúben, o filho mais velho de Israel:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 21O número dos da tribo de Rúben foi 46.500.

22Dos descendentes de Simeão:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 23O número dos da tribo de Simeão foi 59.300.

24Dos descendentes de Gade:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 25O número dos da tribo de Gade foi 45.650.

26Dos descendentes de Judá:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 27O número dos da tribo de Judá foi 74.600.

28Dos descendentes de Issacar:

30Dos descendentes de Zebulom:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 31O número dos da tribo de Zebulom foi 57.400.

32Dos filhos de José:

Dos descendentes de Efraim:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 33O número dos da tribo de Efraim foi 40.500.

34Dos descendentes de Manassés:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 35O número dos da tribo de Manassés foi 32.200.

36Dos descendentes de Benjamim:

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 37O número dos da tribo de Benjamim foi 35.400.

Todos os homens de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram relacionados, cada um pelo seu nome, de acordo com os registros de seus clãs e famílias. 43O número dos da tribo de Naftali foi 53.400.

44Esses foram os homens contados por Moisés e por Arão e pelos doze líderes de Israel, cada um representando a sua família. 45Todos os israelitas de vinte anos para cima que podiam servir no exército foram contados de acordo com as suas famílias. 46O total foi 603.550 homens.

A Função dos Levitas

47As famílias da tribo de Levi, porém, não foram contadas juntamente com as outras, 48pois o Senhor tinha dito a Moisés: 49“Não faça o recenseamento da tribo de Levi nem a relacione entre os demais israelitas. 50Em vez disso, designe os levitas como responsáveis pelo tabernáculo que guarda as tábuas da aliança, por todos os seus utensílios e por tudo o que pertence a ele. Eles transportarão o tabernáculo e todos os seus utensílios; cuidarão dele e acamparão ao seu redor. 51Sempre que o tabernáculo tiver que ser removido, os levitas o desmontarão e, sempre que tiver que ser armado, os levitas o farão. Qualquer pessoa não autorizada que se aproximar do tabernáculo terá que ser executada. 52Os israelitas armarão as suas tendas organizadas segundo as suas divisões, cada um em seu próprio acampamento e junto à sua bandeira. 53Os levitas, porém, armarão as suas tendas ao redor do tabernáculo que guarda as tábuas da aliança, para que a ira divina não caia sobre a comunidade de Israel. Os levitas terão a responsabilidade de cuidar do tabernáculo que guarda as tábuas da aliança”.

54Os israelitas fizeram tudo exatamente como o Senhor tinha ordenado a Moisés.
