chiefs of Israel made. The chiefs were twelve, a man for

every tribe. They were of the patriarchal houses of their re45 spective tribes. And the whole review of the Israelites, compre46 hending their army from twenty years old and upwards, every

one who went out to be marshalled in Israel, was six hundred 47 and three thousand five hundred and fifty. But the Levites of 48 the tribe of their father's house, were not reviewed among the 49 Israelites: for the Lord had spoken to Moses, saying, See that

thou review not the tribe of Levi, nor take an account of them 50 among the children of Israel. But thou shalt set the Levites

over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all the utensils thereof, and over all the things which are in it. They shall car

ry the tabernacle, and all its utensils, and they shall minister 51 therein, and encamp about the tabernacle. And when the ta

bernacle is to remove, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, they shall set it up.

And if any of another family come near, let him be put to 52 death. And when the Israelites encamp, every man in his sta

tion, and every man according to his command, with their ar53 my, let the Levites encamp before them, around the taberna

cle of the testimony, that there may be no lapse committed by the children of Israel; and that the Levites themselves may

guard the tabernacle of the testimony. 54. And when the Israelites had done according to all that the II. Lord commanded Moses, then the Lord spoke to Moses and 2 Aaron, saying, Let the children of Israel encamp close to one

another, by divisions, by standards, by the houses of their fa3 milies, facing the tabernacle of the testimony. All around it

the Israelites shall encamp. And they who encamp first, to

wards the east, shall be the division of the camp of Judas with 4 their army; and the chief of the children of Judas shall be

march as the rear division. 32 This is the review of the children of Israel according to the

houses of their families; the whole muster of the camps, com33 prehending their armies, being six hundred and three thou

sand five hundred and fifty. But the Levites were not review34 ed among them, as the Lord commanded Moses. And the

children of Israel did all that the Lord commanded Moses. So they encamped according to their divisions, and so they set out on their march, every one in his rank, according to their

communities, and according to the houses of their families. III. Now this is the genealogy of Aaron and Moses. 2 On the day when the Lord spoke to Moses at mount Si

na, these were the names of Aaron's sons, Nadab his first 3 born, and Abiud, Eleazar and Ithamar. These were the names

of Aaron's sons who were anointed priests, whose hands were 4 consecrated to minister in the priest's office. But Nadab and

Abiud died in the presence of the Lord, upon their offering strange fire before the Lord, in the wilderness of Sina, and they

had no children; so Eleazar and Ithamar officiated as priests 5 with their father. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Take

[ocr errors]

6 the tribe of Levi, and thou shalt present them before Aaron 7 the priest, and they shall minister to him, and keep his watch

es, and the watches of the children of Israel before the taber8 nacle of the testimony, to do the works of the tabernacle. Now

that they may keep all the utensils of the tabernacle of the tes

timony, and the watches of the children of Israel, as far as they 9 respect all the works of the tabernacle; and that thou mayst

give the Levites, to Aaron and his sons the priests; they are

to be given to me as a gift from among the children of Israel. 10 And thou shalt set Aaron and his sons over the tabernacle of

the testimony, and they shall keep watch over their priesthood, and all that appertain to the altar, and that are within the veil; and if any one of another family touch these, he shall be put

to death. 11. Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses saying, Behold I have 12 taken the Levites from among the children of Israel, instead of

all the first born males among the children of Israel. The Le

vites shall be the price of their redemption, and shall be mine; 13 for every first born belongeth to me. On the day when I smote

every first born in the land of Egypt, I hallowed for myself all the firstlings in Israel. The firstlings both of man and beast

shall belong to me. I am the Lord. 14 Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sina, 15 saying, Review the children of Levi, according to the houses

of their families, according to their communities. Review 16 them every male, from a month old and upwards. Accordingly

Moses and Aaron reviewed them, at the command of the Lord, 17 in the manner the Lord commanded them. Now these were

the sons of Levi by their names, Gerson, Kaath, and Merari. 18 And these are the sons of Gerson, according to their commu19 nities; Lobeni and Semei. And these are the sons of Kaath

according to their communities, Amram and Issaar, Chebron 20 and Oziel. And the sons of Merari, according to their com

munities, were Mooli and Mousi. These are the communities

of the Levites, according to the houses of their families. 21 To the Gersonites belong the community of the Lobenites, 22 and the community of the Semeites. These are the commu.

nities of the Gersonites; and the review of them according to the number of every male, from a month old and upwards-
