Numbers 1

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, “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. Count 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. One man from each tribe must help you. Those who help must be the heads of their families.

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

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

47 But the families of the tribe of Levi were not counted along with the others. 48 The 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. 50 Instead, 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. 51 When 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. 52 The Israelites must set up their tents by military groups. All of them must be in their own camps under their own flags. 53 But 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.”

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

4 Мојсијева 1

Први попис Израиљаца

1Првога дана другога месеца, друге године након што су изашли из Египта, Господ рече Мојсију у Синајској пустињи, у Шатору од састанка: „Извршите попис све заједнице синова Израиљевих по њиховим породицама и њиховим отачким домовима, према броју имена свих мушкараца, једног по једног. Ти и Арон забележите све у Израиљу по њиховим јединицама, од двадесет година па навише, који су способни за војску. С вама ће бити по један човек из сваког племена, који је главар свог отачког дома.

Ово су имена људи који ће вам помагати:

за Рувимово племе, Елисур, Седијуров син;

за Симеуново племе, Сурисадајев син Саламило;

за Јудино племе, Аминадавов син Насон;

за Исахарово племе, Согаров син Натанаило,

За Завулоново племе, Хелонов син Елијав.

10 За Јосифове синове:

Амијудов син Елисама, за Јефремово племе,

и Фадасуров син Гамалило, за Манасијино племе.

11 За Венијаминово племе, Гадеонијев син Авидан;

12 за Даново племе, Амисадајев син Ахијезер;

16 Ови су били изабрани од заједнице, кнезови својих отачких племена, главари Израиљевих хиљада.

17 Мојсије и Арон су узели ове људе који су били одређени по имену, 18 па су сабрали сву заједницу првога дана другог месеца. Они су се, један по један, уписали у своја родословља, по својим породицама, по својим отачким домовима, и по својим именима, од двадесет година па навише, 19 као што је Господ заповедио Мојсију. Тако их је пописао у Синајској пустињи.

20 Од потомака Рувима, Израиљевог првенца, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 21 Из Рувимовог племена било је пописано четрдесет шест хиљада пет стотина.

28 Од Исахарових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 29 Из Исахаровог племена било је пописано педесет четири хиљаде четири стотине.

30 Од Завулонових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 31 Из Завулоновог племена било је пописано педесет седам хиљада четири стотине.

32 Од Јосифових потомака: од Јефремових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 33 Из Јефремовог племена било је пописано четрдесет хиљада пет стотина.

34 Од Манасијиних потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 35 Из Манасијиног племена било је пописано тридесет две хиљаде две стотине.

36 Од Венијаминових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 37 Из Венијаминовог племена било је пописано тридесет пет хиљада четири стотине.

38 Од Данових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 39 Из Дановог племена било је пописано шездесет две хиљаде седам стотина.

40 Од Асирових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 41 Из Асировог племена било је пописано четрдесет једна хиљада пет стотина.

42 Од Нефталимових потомака, појединачно су били пописани сви мушкарци од двадесет година па навише, способни за војску, по својим родословима, по својим породицама и својим отачким домовима. 43 Из Нефталимовог племена било је пописано педесет три хиљаде четири стотине.

44 Ови пописани су били они које је пописао Мојсије са Ароном, уз помоћ дванаест кнезова, по један човек на сваки отачки дом. 45 Сви Израиљци, који су били уписани у своје отачке домове, од двадесет година па навише, били су способни за војску у Израиљу. 46 Свих пописаних било је шест стотина три хиљаде пет стотина педесет.

47 Ипак, међу њих се нису водили Левити према свом предачком племену. 48 Наиме, Господ је рекао Мојсију: 49 „Нека се Левијево племе не пописује, и нека се не пописују са осталим Израиљцима. 50 Него, постави Левите над Пребивалиштем сведочанства, и над свом опремом и свим што му припада. Они ће носити Пребивалиште са свом опремом, служити у њему, и логоровати око Пребивалишта. 51 Кад Пребивалиште крене, нека га Левити раставе, а кад се Пребивалиште заустави, нека га Левити подигну. Ако му се приближи туђинац, нека се погуби. 52 Остали Израиљци нека логорују сваки у своме табору, код своје заставе, и по својим четама. 53 Левити нека логорују око Пребивалишта сведочанства, да не би плануо гнев на израиљску заједницу. Зато нека чувају стражу код Пребивалишта сведочанства.“

54 Израиљци учине све онако како је Господ заповедио Мојсију. Баш тако су учинили.
