Numbers 2New Life Version (NLV)

The Family Groups in Camp

The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “The people of Israel will set up their tents, each by his own flag and beside that of their fathers’. They will set up their tents to face the meeting tent on every side. Those who stay in their tents on the east side toward the sunrise will have the flag of Judah by their armies. The leader of the people of Judah is Nahshon the son of Amminadab. The number of all his army is 74,600. The family of Issachar will set up their tents next to Judah.

The number of his army is 57,400. The whole number among the tents of Judah is 186,400, by their armies. They will be first to move on.

10 “On the south side will be the tents of Reuben by their armies with their flags. The leader of the people of Reuben is Elizur the son of Shedeur. 11 The number of his army is 46,500. 12 The family of Simeon will set up their tents next to him.

They will be second to move on.

17 “Then the meeting tent will go out with the Levites among the people. In the same way that they set up their tents, so they will leave to move on, every man in his place, by his flags.

18 “On the west side will be the flag of the tents of Ephraim by their armies. The leader of the people of Ephraim is Elishama the son of Ammihud. 19 The number of his army is 40,500. 20 The family of Manasseh will be next to him.

The leader of the people of Benjamin is Abidan the son of Gideoni. 23 The number of his army is 35,400. 24 The whole number among the tents of Ephraim is 108,100, by their armies. They will be third to move on.

25 “On the north side will be the flag of the tents of Dan by their armies. The leader of the people of Dan is Ahiezer the son of Ammishaddai. 26 The number of his army is 62,700. 27 The family of Asher will set up their tents next to him. The leader of the people of Asher is Pagiel the son of Ochran. 28 The number of his army is 41,500. 29 The family of Naphtali will be next. The leader of the people of Naphtali is Ahira the son of Enan. 30 The number of his army is 53,400. 31 The whole number among the tents of Dan is 157,600. They will be last to move on with their flags.”

32 These are the numbers of the men of Israel by their fathers’ houses. The whole number among all the tents, by their armies, was 603,550. 33 But the Levites were not numbered with the people of Israel, just as the Lord had told Moses. 34 So the people of Israel did all that the Lord had told Moses. They set up their tents by their flags. And they left to move on in the same way, every one by his family and by his father’s house.
