35Those that were numbered of them, [even] of the tribe of M’nasheh [Causing to Forget], [were] thirty and two thousand and two hundred.
36Of the children of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength], by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;
37Those that were numbered of them, [even] of the tribe of Binyamin [Son of the Right Hand/Strength], [were] thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

44These [are] those that were numbered, which Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters] and Aharon [Bright, Very High] numbered, and the princes of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], [being] twelve men: each one was for the house of his fathers.
45So were all those that were numbered of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God];
46Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.
47But the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.
48For the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) had spoken unto Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], saying,
49Only youi shall not number the tribe of Levi (Levite) [Adhesion, Joiner], neither take the sum of them among the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]:
50But youi shall appoint the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that [belong] to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.
51And when the tabernacle sets forward, the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall set it up: and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.
52And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own Flag (banner), throughout their hosts.
53But the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: and the Levi’im (Levites) [Joined to] shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony.
54And the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] did according to all that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded Moshe [He Who Draws Out Of The Waters], so did they.
