Numbers 3:14-16

The Numbering of the Levites

3:14 Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai: 3:15 “Number the Levites by their clans 1  and their families; every male from a month old and upward you are to number.” 2  3:16 So Moses numbered them according to the word 3  of the Lord, just as he had been commanded. 4 

1 tn Heb “the house of their fathers.” So also in v. 20.

2 tn Heb “you are to/shall number them.”

3 tn Heb “at the mouth of the Lord.”

4 tn The Pual perfect may be given the past perfect translation in this sentence because the act of commanding preceded the act of numbering.
