1 After the plague had ended, the LORD said to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest,

2 "Take a census of all the men of Israel who are twenty years old or older, to find out how many of each family are of military age."

3 At that time the entire nation of Israel was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho. So Moses and Eleazar the priest issued these census instructions to the leaders of Israel:
