Numbers 26 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Numbering the Second Generation
26 After the plague, Adonai said to Moses and Eleazar son of Aaron the kohen saying, 2 “Take a headcount of the entire community of Bnei-Yisrael, sons twenty years old and upward, by their ancestral houses, all who can serve in Israel’s army.”
3 So Moses and Eleazar the kohen spoke with them on the Moabite plains by the Jordan across from Jericho saying, 4 “Just as Adonai commanded Moses, a census will be taken of all men of Bnei-Yisrael who came out of Egypt, from 20 years old and upward.”

52 Adonai then spoke to Moses saying, 53 “The land is to be divided to these as an inheritance according to the number of names. 54 For the larger, you are to make his inheritance larger, and to the smaller you are to make his inheritance smaller. Each is to receive his inheritance in proportion to his population. 55 Certainly the land is to be divided by lot. They will inherit it according to the names of their ancestral tribes. 56 The division of the inheritance of larger and smaller tribes is to be decided by the lot.”
57 These were the numbers of the Levites by their families: by Gershon the Gershonite family, by Kohath the Kohathite family, by Merari the Merarite family. 58 These were the families of Levi: the Libnite family, the Hebronite family, the Machlite family, the Mushite family and the Korahite family. Kohath fathered Amram. 59 Amram’s wife’s name was Jochebed daughter of Levi, who was born to the Levites in Egypt. She gave birth for Amram, Aaron and Moses, as well as Miriam their sister. 60 Aaron was the father of Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 61 However, Nadab and Abihu died when they offered sacrifices with unauthorized fire before Adonai. 62 The male Levites a month old and upward totaled 23,000, though they were not included among Bnei-Yisrael, since He did not give them an inheritance among Bnei-Yisrael.
63 These were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the kohen when they counted Bnei-Yisrael on the plains of Moab across from Jericho. 64 Not one of them was among those counted by Moses and Aaron the kohen when they counted Bnei-Yisrael in the Sinai wilderness, 65 because Adonai had said they would surely die in the wilderness. Not one of them was left, except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
