Now the Lord 2  spoke 3  to Moses in the tent of meeting 4  in the wilderness 5  of Sinai 6  on the first day of the second month of the second year after 7  the Israelites 8  departed from the land of Egypt. 9  He said: 10  1:2 Take a census 11  of the entire 12  Israelite community 13  by their clans and families, 14  counting the name of every individual male. 15  1:3 You and Aaron are to number 16  all in Israel who can serve in the army, 17  those who are 18  twenty years old or older, 19  by their divisions. 20  1:4 And to help you 21  there is to be a man from each 22  tribe, each man 23  the head 24  of his family. 25
