2“Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, by their clans, by their fathers’ houses, according to the number of names, every male, head by head,
3from twenty years old and above, everyone going out to the army in Yisra’ĕl. Number them by their divisions, you and Aharon.
4“And a man from every tribe should be with you, each one the head of his father’s house.
5“And these are the names of the men who stand with you. From Re’uḇĕn: Elitsur, son of Sheḏĕy’ur.
6“From Shim‛on: Shelumi’ĕl, son of Tsurishaddai.
7“From Yehuḏah: Naḥshon, son of Amminaḏaḇ.

46all those that were registered were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty.
47But the Lĕwites were not registered among them by their fathers’ tribe,
48because יהוה had spoken to Mosheh, saying,
49“Only the tribe of Lĕwi you do not register, nor take a census of them among the children of Yisra’ĕl.
50“Instead, appoint the Lĕwites over the Dwelling Place of the Witness, over all its furnishings, and over all that belongs to it. They bear the Dwelling Place and all its furnishings, and they attend to it, and camp around the Dwelling Place.
51“And when the Dwelling Place is to go forward, the Lĕwites take it down. And when the Dwelling Place is to be set up, the Lĕwites set it up. And the stranger who comes near is put to death.
52“And the children of Yisra’ĕl shall pitch their tents, everyone by his own camp, everyone by his own banner, according to their divisions,
53but let the Lĕwites camp around the Dwelling Place of the Witness, so that there be no wrath on the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl. And the Lĕwites shall guard the duty of the Dwelling Place of the Witness.”
54And the children of Yisra’ĕl did according to all that יהוה commanded Mosheh, so they did.
