1After the plague was over, the Lord told Moses and Eleazar son of Aaron the priest,
2“Census all the Israelites by family—all those twenty years of age or older who are eligible for military service in the army of Israel.”
3There on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan opposite Jericho, Moses and Eleazar the priest gave the order,

52The Lord told Moses,
53“Divide the land that is to be owned based on the number of those censused.
54Give a larger area of land to large tribe, and a smaller area to a smaller tribe. Each tribe shall receive their allotment of land depending on their number counted in the census.

55The land has to be divided up by casting lots. Everyone shall receive their allotted land based on the name of their ancestor's tribe.
56Every allocation of land is to be divided by casting lots among the tribes, whether large or small.”
57These were the Levites censused by family: Gershon, ancestor of the Gershonite family; Kohath, ancestor of the Kohathite family; and Merari, ancestor of the Merarite family.
58The following were the families of the Levites: the Libnite family, the Hebronite family, the Mahlite family, the Mushite family, and the Korahite family. Kohath was the father of Amram,
59and the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed. She was a descendant of Levi, born while the Levites were in Egypt. She had children with Amram: Aaron, Moses, and their sister Miriam.
60Aaron's sons were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar,
61but Nadab and Abihu died when they offered forbidden fire in the Lord's presence.
62The number of the Levites censused totaled 23,000. This included every male one month old or older. However, they were not counted with the other Israelites, because no land allotment was given to them with the other Israelites.
63This is the record of those were censused by Moses and Eleazar the priest when they counted the Israelites on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan opposite Jericho.
64However, they did not include a single one who had previously been censused by Moses and Aaron the priest when they counted the Israelites in the Sinai Desert,
65because the Lord had told them that they would all die in the desert. No one was left except Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, son of Nun.
