(Read Numbers 26 Part 1 First)

36 This was the subclan descended from the Shuthelahites: The Eranites, named after their ancestor Eran.

37 The men from all the clans of Ephraim numbered 32,500. These clans of Manasseh and Ephraim were all descendants of Joseph.

38 These were the clans descended from the sons of Benjamin: The Belaite clan, named after its ancestor Bela. The Ashbelite clan, named after its ancestor Ashbel. The Ahiramite clan, named after its ancestor Ahiram.

39 The Shuphamite clan, named after its ancestor Shupham.* The Huphamite clan, named after its ancestor Hupham.1

40 These were the subclans descended from the Belaites: The Ardites, named after their ancestor Ard.* The Naamites, named after their ancestor Naaman.2

41 The men from all the clans of Benjamin numbered 45,600.

42 These were the clans descended from the sons of Dan: The Shuhamite clan, named after its ancestor Shuham.

43 All the clans of Dan were Shuhamite clans, and the men from these clans numbered 64,400.

44 These were the clans descended from the sons of Asher: The Imnite clan, named after its ancestor Imnah. The Ishvite clan, named after its ancestor Ishvi. The Beriite clan, named after its ancestor Beriah.

45 These were the subclans descended from the Beriites: The Heberites, named after their ancestor Heber. The Malkielites, named after their ancestor Malkiel.

46 Asher also had a daughter named Serah.

47 The men from all the clans of Asher numbered 53,400.

48 These were the clans descended from the sons of Naphtali: The Jahzeelite clan, named after its ancestor Jahzeel. The Gunite clan, named after its ancestor Guni.

49 The Jezerite clan, named after its ancestor Jezer. The Shillemite clan, named after its ancestor Shillem.

50 The men from all the clans of Naphtali numbered 45,400.

51 So the total number of Israelite men counted in the census numbered 601,730.

52 Then the LORD said to Moses,

53 "Divide the land among the tribes in proportion to their populations, as indicated by the census.

54 Give the larger tribes more land and the smaller tribes less land, each group's inheritance reflecting the size of its population.

55 Make sure you assign the land by lot, and define the inheritance of each ancestral tribe by means of the census listings.

56 Each inheritance must be assigned by lot among the larger and smaller tribal groups."

57 This is the census record for the Levites who were counted according to their clans: The Gershonite clan, named after its ancestor Gershon. The Kohathite clan, named after its ancestor Kohath. The Merarite clan, named after its ancestor Merari.

58 The Libnites, the Hebronites, the Mahlites, the Mushites, and the Korahites were all subclans of the Levites. Now Kohath was the ancestor of Amram,

59 and Amram's wife was named Jochebed. She also was a descendant of Levi, born among the Levites in the land of Egypt. Amram and Jochebed became the parents of Aaron, Moses, and their sister, Miriam.

60 To Aaron were born Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

61 But Nadab and Abihu died when they burned before the LORD a different kind of fire than he had commanded.

62 The men from the Levite clans who were one month old or older numbered 23,000. But the Levites were not included in the total census figure of the people of Israel because they were not given an inheritance of land when it was divided among the Israelites.

63 So these are the census figures of the people of Israel as prepared by Moses and Eleazar the priest on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho.

64 Not one person that was counted in this census had been among those counted in the previous census taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai.

65 For the LORD had said of them, "They will all die in the wilderness." The only exceptions were Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
