The Second Census. 19After the slaughter* 1the LORD said to Moses and Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, 2“Take a census, by ancestral houses, throughout the community of the Israelites of all those of twenty years or more who are fit for military service in Israel.” g Nm 1, 2f . 3So on the plains of Moab along the Jericho stretch of the Jordan, Moses and the priest Eleazar registered 4those of twenty years or more, as the LORD had commanded Moses.

The Israelites who came out of the land of Egypt were as follows:5 h 5f: 1 Chr 5, 3 .

Allotment of the Land. 52 *The LORD said to Moses, 53 l Jos 11, 23 . “Among these groups the land shall be divided as their heritage in keeping with the number of individuals in each group. 54 m Nm 33, 54; 35, 8 . To a large group you shall assign a large heritage, to a small group a small heritage, each group receiving its heritage in proportion to the number of men registered in it. 55But the land shall be divided by lot, as the heritage of the various ancestral tribes. 56As the lot falls shall each group, large or small, be assigned its heritage.”

Census of the Levites. 57The Levites registered by clans were: through Gershon the clan of the Gershonites, through Kohath the clan of the Kohathites, through Merari the clan of the Merarites. 58These also were clans of Levi: the clan of the Libnites, the clan of the Hebronites, the clan of the Mahlites, the clan of the Mushites, the clan of the Korahites.

Among the descendants of Kohath was Amram, 59whose wife was named Jochebed. She also was of the tribe of Levi, born to the tribe in Egypt. To Amram she bore Aaron and Moses and their sister Miriam. 60To Aaron were born Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 61But Nadab and Abihu died when they offered profane fire before the LORD.

62The total number of male Levites one month or more of age, who were registered, was twenty‐three thousand. n Nm 3, 39 . They were not registered with the other Israelites, however, for no heritage was given them among the Israelites.

63These, then, were the men registered by Moses and the priest Eleazar in the census of the Israelites taken on the plains of Moab along the Jericho stretch of the Jordan. 64Among them there was not a man of those who had been registered by Moses and the priest Aaron in the census of the Israelites taken in the desert of Sinai. 65 o Nm 14, 22ff. 14, 29 For the LORD had told them that they would surely die in the desert, and not one of them was left except Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, son of Nun.
