Numbers 1

  20-21 This is the number of men twenty years old or older who were able to go to war, as their names were listed in the records of their clans and families*:
Tribe Number
Reuben (Jacob's* oldest son) 46,500
22-23 Simeon 59,300
24-25 Gad 45,650
26-27 Judah 74,600
28-29 Issachar 54,400
30-31 Zebulun 57,400
32-33 Ephraim son of Joseph 40,500
34-35 Manasseh son of Joseph 32,200
36-37 Benjamin 35,400
38-39 Dan 62,700
40-41 Asher 41,500
42-43 Naphtali 53,400


44 These were the men registered by Moses and Aaron and the twelve leaders of Israel, all listed according to their ancestral descent.45 They were registered by families—all the men of Israel who were twenty years old or older and able to go to war.46 The total number was 603,550.
  47 But this total did not include the Levites.48 For the LORD had said to Moses,49 "Do not include the tribe of Levi in the registration; do not count them with the rest of the Israelites.50 Put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant,* along with all its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and all its furnishings as you travel, and they must take care of it and camp around it.51 Whenever it is time for the Tabernacle to move, the Levites will take it down. And when it is time to stop, they will set it up again. But any unauthorized person who goes too near the Tabernacle must be put to death.52 Each tribe of Israel will camp in a designated area with its own family banner.53 But the Levites will camp around the Tabernacle of the Covenant to protect the community of Israel from the LORD's anger. The Levites are responsible to stand guard around the Tabernacle."
  54 So the Israelites did everything just as the LORD had commanded Moses.

Footnotes:

1:20-21a In the Hebrew text, this sentence (This is the number of men twenty years old or older who were able to go to war, as their names were listed in the records of their clans and families) is repeated in 1:22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42. 1:20-21b Hebrew Israel's. The names "Jacob" and "Israel" are often interchanged throughout the Old Testament, referring sometimes to the individual patriarch and sometimes to the nation.
1:50 Or Tabernacle of the Testimony; also in 1:53.

I recommend the NLT second edition because it is very clear and helpful. It has been a very useful tool in communicating Scriptural truths. I love the NLT!
