New International Version

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.

민수기 1

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.

너희를 도와줄 각 지파의 지도자들은 다음과 같다:

르우벤 지파에서

스데울의 아들 엘리술,

시므온 지파에서

수리삿대의 아들 슬루미엘,

유다 지파에서

암미나답의 아들 나손,

잇사갈 지파에서

수알의 아들 느다넬,

스불론 지파에서

헬론의 아들 엘리압,

10 요셉 자손 중에서는

에브라임 지파에서

암미훗의 아들 엘리사마,

므낫세 지파에서

브다술의 아들 가말리엘,

11 베냐민 지파에서

기드오니의 아들 아비단,

12 단 지파에서

암미삿대의 아들 아히에셀,

13 아셀 지파에서

오그란의 아들 바기엘,

14 갓 지파에서

드우엘의 아들 엘리아삽,

15 납달리 지파에서

에난의 아들 아히라이다.”

16 이들은 모두 이스라엘 백성 가운데서 선출된 각 지파의 지도자들이었다.

17-19 그 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.

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

21 야곱의 맏아들 르우벤 지파에서46,500명
22-23 시므온 지파에서59,300명
24-25 갓 지파에서45,650명
26-27 유다 지파에서74,600명
28-29 잇사갈 지파에서54,400명
30-31 스불론 지파에서57,400명
32-33 에브라임 지파에서40,500명
34-35 므낫세 지파에서32,200명
36-37 베냐민 지파에서35,400명
38-39 단 지파에서62,700명
40-41 아셀 지파에서41,500명
42-43 납달리 지파에서53,400명

44-46 모두 603,550명이었다.

47 그러나 이 총인원에는 레위인이 포함되지 않았다.

48 그것은 여호와께서 모세에게 이렇게 말씀하셨기 때문이다.

49 “레위 지파는 한 사람도 징집 명단에 포함시키지 말고

50 [a]성막과 그 모든 비품을 관리하게 하라. 그들은 성막과 그 모든 기구를 운반하고 성막 주변에 살면서 봉사하게 하라.

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

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

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

54 그래서 이스라엘 백성은 여호와께서 모세에게 명령하신 대로 하였다.
