congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year
after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
NUM 1:2 Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of
Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the
number of their names, every male by their polls;
NUM 1:3 From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth
to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.
NUM 1:4 And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one
head of the house of his fathers.
NUM 1:5 And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you:
of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur.
