You are here: God >> The Bible >> Numbers 2

1 Then the LORD gave these instructions to Moses and Aaron:

2 "Each tribe will be assigned its own area in the camp, and the various groups will camp beneath their family banners. The Tabernacle* will be located at the center of these tribal compounds.1

3 "The divisions of Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun are to camp toward the sunrise on the east side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: [Tribe Leader Number] Judah Nahshon son of Amminadab 74,600

4

5 Issachar Nethanel son of Zuar 54,400

6

7 Zebulun Eliab son of Helon 57,400

8

9 So the total of all the troops on Judah's side of the camp is 186,400. These three tribes are to lead the way whenever the Israelites travel to a new campsite.

10 "The divisions of Reuben, Simeon, and Gad are to camp on the south side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: [Tribe Leader Number] Reuben Elizur son of Shedeur 46,500

11

12 Simeon Shelumiel son of Zurishaddai 59,300

13

14 Gad Eliasaph son of Deuel* 45,6502

15 3

16 So the total of all the troops on Reuben's side of the camp is 151,450. These three tribes will be second in line whenever the Israelites travel.

17 "Then the Levites will set out from the middle of the camp with the Tabernacle. All the tribes are to travel in the same order that they camp, each in position under the appropriate family banner.

18 "The divisions of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Benjamin are to camp on the west side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: [Tribe Leader Number] Ephraim Elishama son of Ammihud 40,500

19

20 Manasseh Gamaliel son of Pedahzur 32,200

21

22 Benjamin Abidan son of Gideoni 35,400

23

24 So the total of all the troops on Ephraim's side of the camp is 108,100, and they will follow the Levites in the line of march.

25 "The divisions of Dan, Asher, and Naphtali are to camp on the north side of the Tabernacle, beneath their family banners. These are the names of the tribes, their leaders, and the number of their available troops: [Tribe Leader Number] Dan Ahiezer son of Ammishaddai 62,700

26

27 Asher Pagiel son of Ocran 41,500

28

29 Naphtali Ahira son of Enan 53,400

30

31 So the total of all the troops on Dan's side of the camp is 157,600. They are to bring up the rear whenever the Israelites move to a new campsite."

32 In summary, the troops of Israel listed by their families totaled 603,550.

33 The Levites were exempted from this census by the LORD's command to Moses.

34 So the people of Israel did everything just as the LORD had commanded Moses. Each clan and family set up camp and marched under their banners exactly as the LORD had instructed them.
