The Numbering of Israel in Moab

26 1  And it came to pass after the plague, that Jehovah spake unto Moses and unto Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, saying, 2  Take the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, from twenty years old and upward, by their fathers' houses, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel. 3  And Moses and Eleazar the priest spake with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho, saying, 4  [Take the sum of the people], from twenty years old and upward; as Jehovah commanded Moses and the children of Israel, that came forth out of the land of Egypt.

5  Reuben, the first-born of Israel; the sons of Reuben: [of] Hanoch, the family of the Hanochites; of Pallu, the family of the Palluites; 6  of Hezron, the family of the Hezronites; of Carmi, the family of the Carmites. 7  These are the families of the Reubenites; and they that were numbered of them were forty and three thousand and seven hundred and thirty. 8  And the sons of Pallu: Eliab. 9  And the sons of Eliab: Nemuel, and Dathan, and Abiram. These are that Dathan and Abiram, who were called of the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korah, when they strove against Jehovah, 10  and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed them up together with Korah, when that company died; what time the fire devoured two hundred and fifty men, and they became a sign. 11  Notwithstanding, the sons of Korah died not. 12  The sons of Simeon after their families: of Nemuel, the family of the Nemuelites; of Jamin, the family of the Jaminites; of Jachin, the family of the Jachinites; 13  of Zerah, the family of the Zerahites; of Shaul, the family of the Shaulites. 14  These are the families of the Simeonites, twenty and two thousand and two hundred. 15  The sons of Gad after their families: of Zephon, the family of the Zephonites; of Haggi, the family of the Haggites; of Shuni, the family of the Shunites; 16  of Ozni, the family of the Oznites; of Eri, the family of the Erites; 17  of Arod, the family of the Arodites; of Areli, the family of the Arelites. 18  These are the families of the sons of Gad according to those that were numbered of them, forty thousand and five hundred. 19  The sons of Judah: Er and Onan; and Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. 20  And the sons of Judah after their families were: of Shelah, the family of the Shelanites; of Perez, the family of the Perezites; of Zerah, the family of the Zerahites. 21  And the sons of Perez were: of Hezron, the family of the Hezronites; of Hamul, the family of the Hamulites. 22  These are the families of Judah according to those that were numbered of them, threescore and sixteen thousand and five hundred. 23  The sons of Issachar after their families: [of] Tola, the family of the Tolaites; of Puvah, the family of the Punites; 24  of Jashub, the family of the Jashubites; of Shimron, the family of the Shimronites. 25  These are the families of Issachar according to those that were numbered of them, threescore and four thousand and three hundred. 26  The sons of Zebulun after their families: of Sered, the family of the Seredites; of Elon, the family of the Elonites; of Jahleel, the family of the Jahleelites. 27  These are the families of the Zebulunites according to those that were numbered of them, threescore thousand and five hundred. 28  The sons of Joseph after their families: Manasseh and Ephraim. 29  The sons of Manasseh: of Machir, the family of the Machirites; and Machir begat Gilead; of Gilead, the family of the Gileadites. 30  These are the sons of Gilead: [of] Iezer, the family of the Iezerites; of Helek, the family of the Helekites; 31  and [of] Asriel, the family of the Asrielites; and [of] Shechem, the family of the Shechemites; 32  and [of] Shemida, the family of the Shemidaites; and [of] Hepher, the family of the Hepherites. 33  And Zelophehad the son of Hepher had no sons, but daughters: and the names of the daughters of Zelophehad were Mahlah, and Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. 34  These are the families of Manasseh; and they that were numbered of them were fifty and two thousand and seven hundred. 35  These are the sons of Ephraim after their families: of Shuthelah, the family of the Shuthelahites; of Becher, the family of the Becherites; of Tahan, the family of the Tahanites. 36  And these are the sons of Shuthelah: of Eran, the family of the Eranites. 37  These are the families of the sons of Ephraim according to those that were numbered of them, thirty and two thousand and five hundred.

The Land to Be Divided by Lot

52  And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, 53  Unto these the land shall be divided for an inheritance according to the number of names. 54  To the more thou shalt give the more inheritance, and to the fewer thou shalt give the less inheritance: to every one according to those that were numbered of him shall his inheritance be given. 55  Notwithstanding, the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit. 56  According to the lot shall their inheritance be divided between the more and the fewer.

The Tribe of Levi

57  And 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. 58  These are the families of Levi: the family of the Libnites, the family of the Hebronites, the family of the Mahlites, the family of the Mushites, the family of the Korahites. And Kohath begat Amram. 59  And the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed, the daughter of Levi, who was born to Levi in Egypt: and she bare unto Amram Aaron and Moses, and Miriam their sister. 60  And unto Aaron were born Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 61  And Nadab and Abihu died, when they offered strange fire before Jehovah. 62  And they that were numbered of them were twenty and three thousand, every male 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.

Only Caleb and Joshua Survive

63  These are they that were numbered by Moses and Eleazar the priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho. 64  But among these there was not a man of them that were numbered by Moses and Aaron the priest, who numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai. 65  For Jehovah had said of them, They shall surely die in the wilderness. And there was not left a man of them, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

The Request of Zelophehad's Daughters

27 1  Then drew near the daughters of Zelophehad, the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph; and these are the names of his daughters: Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 2  And they stood before Moses, and before Eleazar the priest, and before the princes and all the congregation, at the door of the tent of meeting, saying, 3  Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not among the company of them that gathered themselves together against Jehovah in the company of Korah: but he died in his own sin; and he had no sons. 4  Why should the name of our father be taken away from among his family, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our father. 5  And Moses brought their cause before Jehovah. 6  And Jehovah spake unto Moses, saying, 7  The daughters of Zelophehad speak right: thou shalt surely give them a possession of an inheritance among their father's brethren; and thou shalt cause the inheritance of their father to pass unto them. 8  And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter. 9  And if he have no daughter, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his brethren. 10  And if he have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his father's brethren. 11  And if his father have no brethren, then ye shall give his inheritance unto his kinsman that is next to him of his family, and he shall possess it: and it shall be unto the children of Israel a statute [and] ordinance, as Jehovah commanded Moses.

Moses Appoints Joshua as His Successor

12  And Jehovah said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mountain of Abarim, and behold the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13  And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered; 14  because ye rebelled against my word in the wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the waters before their eyes. (These are the waters of Meribah of Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.)

15  And Moses spake unto Jehovah, saying, 16  Let Jehovah, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, 17  who may go out before them, and who may come in before them, and who may lead them out, and who may bring them in; that the congregation of Jehovah be not as sheep which have no shepherd. 18  And Jehovah said unto Moses, Take thee Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay thy hand upon him; 19  and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation; and give him a charge in their sight. 20  And thou shalt put of thine honor upon him, that all the congregation of the children of Israel may obey. 21  And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall inquire for him by the judgment of the Urim before Jehovah: at his word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he, and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation. 22  And Moses did as Jehovah commanded him; and he took Joshua, and set him before Eleazar the priest, and before all the congregation: 23  and he laid his hands upon him, and gave him a charge, as Jehovah spake by Moses.
