Numbers 1:1-54

The Men of Israel Are Counted

1The Lord spoke to Moses in the tent of meeting. It happened in the Desert of Sinai. The Lord spoke to him on the first day of the second month. It was the second year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. The Lord said, 2“Count all the men of Israel. Make a list of them by their tribes and families. List every man by name. List them one by one. 3Count all the men able to serve in the army. They must be 20 years old or more. I want you and Aaron to make a list of them group by group. 4One man from each tribe must help you. Those who help must be the heads of their families.

5“Here are the names of the men who must help you.

“From the tribe of Reuben will come Elizur, the son of Shedeur.

6From the tribe of Simeon will come Shelumiel, the son of Zurishaddai.

7From the tribe of Judah will come Nahshon, the son of Amminadab.

8From the tribe of Issachar will come Nethanel, the son of Zuar.

9From the tribe of Zebulun will come Eliab, the son of Helon.

10From the tribe of Ephraim will come Elishama, the son of Ammihud.

From the tribe of Manasseh will come Gamaliel, the son of Pedahzur.

Ephraim and Manasseh are Joseph’s two sons.

11From the tribe of Benjamin will come Abidan, the son of Gideoni.

13From the tribe of Asher will come Pagiel, the son of Okran.

47But the families of the tribe of Levi were not counted along with the others. 48The Lord had spoken to Moses. He had said, 49“You must not count the men from the tribe of Levi. Do not include them when you list the other men of Israel. 50Instead, put the Levites in charge of the holy tent. That is where the tablets of the covenant law are kept. The Levites will be in charge of everything that belongs to the holy tent. They must carry the tent and everything that belongs to it. They must take care of it. They must set up camp around it. 51When the holy tent must be moved, the Levites must take it down. And when the tent must be set up, the Levites must do it. Anyone else who approaches it must be put to death. 52The Israelites must set up their tents by military groups. All of them must be in their own camps under their own flags. 53But the Levites must set up their tents around the holy tent. That’s where the tablets of the covenant law are kept. Then I will not be angry with the community of Israel. The Levites will be responsible for taking care of the tent.”

54The Israelites did everything just as the Lord had commanded Moses.

Numero 1:1-54

Ang Nahauna nga Pagsensos sang Israel

1Sang nahauna nga adlaw, sang ikaduha nga bulan, sang ikaduha nga tuig halin sang pagguwa sang mga Israelinhon sa Egipto, nagpakigsugilanon ang Ginoo kay Moises sa Tolda nga Ginapakigkitaan didto sa kamingawan sang Sinai. Siling niya: 2Isensos ninyo ang bug-os nga katilingban sang Israel suno sa ila mga pamilya. Ilista ninyo ang mga ngalan sang tanan nga lalaki 3nga nagaedad sing 20 ka tuig paibabaw nga puwede magsoldado. Kamo ni Aaron ang magdumala sa pagsensos. 4Magabulig sa inyo ang pangulo sang kada tribo. 5-15Amo ini sila ang magabulig sa inyo:

Tribo PanguloReuben Elizur nga anak ni ShedeurSimeon Shelumiel nga anak ni ZurishadaiJuda Nashon nga anak ni AminadabIsacar Netanel nga anak ni ZuarZebulun Eliab nga anak ni HelonEfraim nga anak ni Jose Elishama nga anak ni AmihudManase nga anak ni Jose Gamaliel nga anak ni PedazurBenjamin Abidan nga anak ni GideoniDan Ahiezer nga anak ni AmishadaiAsher Pagiel nga anak ni OcranGad Eliasaf nga anak ni DeuelNaftali Ahira nga anak ni Enan

16Amo ato sila ang mga pangulo sang mga tribo nga ginpili halin sa katilingban sang Israel.

17-18Ginpatipon ni Moises kag ni Aaron kaupod sang sini nga mga pangulo ang bug-os nga katilingban sadto mismo nga adlaw. Ginlista nila ang tanan nga lalaki nga nagaedad sing 20 ka tuig paibabaw, suno sa ila mga pamilya. 19Ginlista sila ni Moises didto sa kamingawan sang Sinai, suno sa ginsugo sa iya sang Ginoo.

20-43Amo ini ang kadamuon sang mga lalaki nga nagaedad 20 ka tuig paibabaw nga puwede magsoldado, nga nalista suno sa ila tribo kag pamilya:

Tribo KadamuonReuben (ang kamagulangan ni Jacob1:20-43 Jacob: sa Hebreo, Israel.) 46,500Simeon 59,300Gad 45,650Juda 74,600Isacar 54,400Zebulun 57,400Efraim nga anak ni Jose 40,500Manase nga anak ni Jose 32,200Benjamin 35,400Dan 62,700Asher 41,500Naftali 53,400

44-45Amo ato ang mga lalaki nga gin-isip ni Moises kag ni Aaron kag sang dose ka pangulo sang Israel. Ang kada isa sa ila nagarepresentar sang iya pamilya, kag nagaedad sila sing 20 ka tuig paibabaw kag puwede magsoldado. 46Ang kabug-usan nga kadamuon nila, 603,550 tanan.

47Pero wala malakip diri ang mga kaliwat ni Levi. 48Kay nagsiling ang Ginoo kay Moises, 49“Indi pag-ilakip ang tribo ni Levi sa pagsensos upod sa iban nga mga Israelinhon nga magaserbisyo sa tion sang inaway. 50Sa baylo, ihatag sa ila ang responsibilidad sa pagdumala sang Tolda nga Simbahan nga sa diin nabutang ang Kasuguan, kag sang tanan nga kagamitan sini. Sila ang magdala sang Tolda kag sang tanan nga kagamitan sini, kag kinahanglan nga atipanon nila ini kag magkampo sila sa palibot sini. 51Kon sayluhon na gani ang Tolda, sila ang maghimos sini, kag kon patindugon naman ini, sila man gihapon ang magpatindog sini. Ang bisan sin-o nga maghimo sang sini nga mga buluhaton sa Tolda, nga indi kaliwat ni Levi, pagapatyon. 52Magakampo ang mga Israelinhon suno sa ila tribo, kag ang kada tribo may bandera. 53Pero ang mga kaliwat ni Levi magakampo sa palibot sang Tolda nga sa diin nabutang ang Kasuguan, agod indi ako maakig sa katilingban sang Israel. Ang mga kaliwat ni Levi amo ang responsable sa pag-atipan sa Tolda.”

54Ginhimo ini tanan sang mga Israelinhon suno sa ginsugo sang Ginoo kay Moises.
