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.

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.

민수기 1:1-54

이스라엘의 첫 인구 조사

1이스라엘 백성이 이집트를 떠난 지 2년째가 되는 해 2월 일에 여호와께서 시 나이 광야 성막에서 모세에게 말씀하셨다.

2-4“너희는 이스라엘의 각 지파와 집안별 로 20세 이상 된 남자로서 전쟁에 나가 싸울 수 있는 사람이 몇 명이나 되는지 조사하여라. 너와 아론은 각 지파에서 선출된 지도자들의 도움을 받아 직접 그 인구 조사를 실시해야 한다.

5너희를 도와줄 각 지파의 지도자들은 다음과 같다:

르우벤 지파에서

스데울의 아들 엘리술,

6시므온 지파에서

수리삿대의 아들 슬루미엘,

7유다 지파에서

암미나답의 아들 나손,

8잇사갈 지파에서

수알의 아들 느다넬,

9스불론 지파에서

헬론의 아들 엘리압,

10요셉 자손 중에서는

에브라임 지파에서

암미훗의 아들 엘리사마,

므낫세 지파에서

브다술의 아들 가말리엘,

11베냐민 지파에서

기드오니의 아들 아비단,

12단 지파에서

암미삿대의 아들 아히에셀,

13아셀 지파에서

오그란의 아들 바기엘,

14갓 지파에서

드우엘의 아들 엘리아삽,

15납달리 지파에서

에난의 아들 아히라이다.”

16이들은 모두 이스라엘 백성 가운데서 선출된 각 지파의 지도자들이었다.

17-19그 날에 모세와 아론과 각 지파 지도자 들은 20세 이상의 이스라엘 모든 남자들을 소집하여 자기 소속 지파와 집안별로 등록하게 하였다. 이 모든 일은 여호와께서 모세에게 명령하신 대로 실시되었다.

20전쟁에 나가 싸울 수 있는 20세 이상 등록된 이스라엘 남자들의 수는 각 지파별로 다음과 같다:

21야곱의 맏아들 르우벤 지파에서 46,500명22-23시므온 지파에서 59,300명24-25갓 지파에서 45,650명26-27유다 지파에서 74,600명28-29잇사갈 지파에서 54,400명30-31스불론 지파에서 57,400명32-33에브라임 지파에서 40,500명34-35므낫세 지파에서 32,200명36-37베냐민 지파에서 35,400명38-39단 지파에서 62,700명40-41아셀 지파에서 41,500명42-43납달리 지파에서 53,400명

44-46모두 603,550명이었다.

47그러나 이 총인원에는 레위인이 포함되지 않았다.

48그것은 여호와께서 모세에게 이렇게 말씀하셨기 때문이다.

49“레위 지파는 한 사람도 징집 명단에 포함시키지 말고

501:50 또는 ‘증거막’성막과 그 모든 비품을 관리하게 하라. 그들은 성막과 그 모든 기구를 운반하고 성막 주변에 살면서 봉사하게 하라.

51성막을 다른 곳으로 옮길 때에는 레위인들이 그것을 걷고 세워야 한다. 그 외에 다른 사람이 이 성막에 접근하면 처형시켜라.

52그리고 이스라엘의 각 지파는 자기 지파의 기를 가지고 지파별로 지역을 정하여 천막을 쳐야 한다.

53그러나 레위인들은 성막 주위에 천막을 쳐서 이스라엘 백성에게 나 여호와의 진노가 내리지 않게 하라. 이와 같이 레위인들은 성막을 지키는 책임을 져야 한다.”

54그래서 이스라엘 백성은 여호와께서 모세에게 명령하신 대로 하였다.
