Numbers 1

The Census

1The Lord spoke to Moses in the tent of meeting in the Desert of Sinai on the first day of the second month of the second year after the Israelites came out of Egypt. He said: “Take a census of the whole Israelite community by their clans and families, listing every man by name, one by one. You and Aaron are to count according to their divisions all the men in Israel who are twenty years old or more and able to serve in the army. One man from each tribe, each of them the head of his family, is to help you. These are the names of the men who are to assist you:

from Reuben, Elizur son of Shedeur;

from Simeon, Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai;

from Judah, Nahshon son of Amminadab;

from Issachar, Nethanel son of Zuar;

from Zebulun, Eliab son of Helon;

10 from the sons of Joseph:

from Ephraim, Elishama son of Ammihud;

from Manasseh, Gamaliel son of Pedahzur;

11 from Benjamin, Abidan son of Gideoni;

12 from Dan, Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai;

13 from Asher, Pagiel son of Okran;

14 from Gad, Eliasaph son of Deuel;

15 from Naphtali, Ahira son of Enan.”

16 These were the men appointed from the community, the leaders of their ancestral tribes. They were the heads of the clans of Israel.

17 Moses and Aaron took these men whose names had been specified, 18 and they called the whole community together on the first day of the second month. The people registered their ancestry by their clans and families, and the men twenty years old or more were listed by name, one by one, 19 as the Lord commanded Moses. And so he counted them in the Desert of Sinai:

20 From the descendants of Reuben the firstborn son of Israel:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, one by one, according to the records of their clans and families. 21 The number from the tribe of Reuben was 46,500.

22 From the descendants of Simeon:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were counted and listed by name, one by one, according to the records of their clans and families. 23 The number from the tribe of Simeon was 59,300.

24 From the descendants of Gad:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 25 The number from the tribe of Gad was 45,650.

26 From the descendants of Judah:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 27 The number from the tribe of Judah was 74,600.

28 From the descendants of Issachar:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 29 The number from the tribe of Issachar was 54,400.

30 From the descendants of Zebulun:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 31 The number from the tribe of Zebulun was 57,400.

32 From the sons of Joseph:

From the descendants of Ephraim:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 33 The number from the tribe of Ephraim was 40,500.

34 From the descendants of Manasseh:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 35 The number from the tribe of Manasseh was 32,200.

36 From the descendants of Benjamin:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 37 The number from the tribe of Benjamin was 35,400.

38 From the descendants of Dan:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 39 The number from the tribe of Dan was 62,700.

40 From the descendants of Asher:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 41 The number from the tribe of Asher was 41,500.

42 From the descendants of Naphtali:

All the men twenty years old or more who were able to serve in the army were listed by name, according to the records of their clans and families. 43 The number from the tribe of Naphtali was 53,400.

44 These were the men counted by Moses and Aaron and the twelve leaders of Israel, each one representing his family. 45 All the Israelites twenty years old or more who were able to serve in Israel’s army were counted according to their families. 46 The total number was 603,550.

47 The ancestral tribe of the Levites, however, was not counted along with the others. 48 The Lord had said to Moses: 49 “You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites. 50 Instead, appoint the Levites to be in charge of the tabernacle of the covenant law—over all its furnishings and everything belonging to it. They are to carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings; they are to take care of it and encamp around it. 51 Whenever the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down, and whenever the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites shall do it. Anyone else who approaches it is to be put to death. 52 The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each of them in their own camp under their standard. 53 The Levites, however, are to set up their tents around the tabernacle of the covenant law so that my wrath will not fall on the Israelite community. The Levites are to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the covenant law.”

54 The Israelites did all this just as the Lord commanded Moses.

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: Isensos ninyo ang bug-os nga katilingban sang Israel suno sa ila mga pamilya. Ilista ninyo ang mga ngalan sang tanan nga lalaki nga nagaedad sing 20 ka tuig paibabaw nga puwede magsoldado. Kamo ni Aaron ang magdumala sa pagsensos. Magabulig sa inyo ang pangulo sang kada tribo. 5-15 Amo ini sila ang magabulig sa inyo:

Tribo Pangulo
ReubenElizur nga anak ni Shedeur
SimeonShelumiel nga anak ni Zurishadai
JudaNashon nga anak ni Aminadab
IsacarNetanel nga anak ni Zuar
ZebulunEliab nga anak ni Helon
Efraim nga anak ni JoseElishama nga anak ni Amihud
Manase nga anak ni JoseGamaliel nga anak ni Pedazur
BenjaminAbidan nga anak ni Gideoni
DanAhiezer nga anak ni Amishadai
AsherPagiel nga anak ni Ocran
GadEliasaf nga anak ni Deuel
NaftaliAhira nga anak ni Enan

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

17-18 Ginpatipon 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. 19 Ginlista sila ni Moises didto sa kamingawan sang Sinai, suno sa ginsugo sa iya sang Ginoo.

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

Tribo Kadamuon
Reuben (ang kamagulangan ni Jacob[a])46,500
Simeon59,300
Gad45,650
Juda74,600
Isacar54,400
Zebulun57,400
Efraim nga anak ni Jose40,500
Manase nga anak ni Jose32,200
Benjamin35,400
Dan62,700
Asher41,500
Naftali53,400

44-45 Amo 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. 46 Ang kabug-usan nga kadamuon nila, 603,550 tanan.

47 Pero wala malakip diri ang mga kaliwat ni Levi. 48 Kay 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. 50 Sa 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. 51 Kon 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. 52 Magakampo ang mga Israelinhon suno sa ila tribo, kag ang kada tribo may bandera. 53 Pero 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.”

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