Numbers (Author Moses)

1:47But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.

1:48For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,

1:49Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:

2:33But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.

3:14And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying,

3:15Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.

3:21Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimites: these are the families of the Gershonites.

3:22Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred.

3:24And the chief of the house of the father of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael.

3:25And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of the congregation shall be the tabernacle, and the tent, the covering thereof, and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

3:26And the hangings of the court, and the curtain for the door of the court, which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and the cords of it for all the service thereof.

3:27And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family of the Izeharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of the Uzzielites: these are the families of the Kohathites.

3:28In the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the sanctuary.

3:34And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred.

3:35And the chief of the house of the father of the families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail: these shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward.

3:36And under the custody and charge of the sons of Merari shall be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the vessels thereof, and all that serveth thereto,

3:37And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.

3:38But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

3:39All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the LORD, throughout their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

4:2Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, after their families, by the house of their fathers,

4:3From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

26:57And these are they that were numbered of the Levites after their families: of Gershon, the family of the Gershonites: of Kohath, the family of the Kohathites: of Merari, the family of the Merarites.

26:58These are the families of the Levites: the family of the Libnites, the family of the Hebronites, the family of the Mahlites, the family of the Mushites, the family of the Korathites. And Kohath begat Amram.

26:59And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, whom her mother bare to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram Aaron and Moses, and Miriam their sister.

26:60And unto Aaron was born Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

26:61And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before the LORD.

26:62And those that were numbered of them were twenty and three thousand, all males from a month old and upward: for they were not numbered among the children of Israel, because there was no inheritance given them among the children of Israel.

23:5Moreover four thousand were porters; and four thousand praised the LORD with the instruments which I made, said David, to praise therewith.
