וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן־אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן לֵאמֹר   26:1

Numb. 26:1  that the Lord spoke to Moses and to Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest, saying,

שְׂאוּ אֶת־רֹאשׁ כָּל־עֲדַת בְּנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵל מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמַעְלָה לְבֵית אֲבֹתָם כָּל־יֹצֵא צָבָא   26:2


Numb. 26:2  “Take the sum of the whole congregation of the children of Israel from age twenty years and up according to the houses of their fathers, of everyone able to go out to war in Israel.”

וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן אֹתָם בְּעַרְבֹת מֹואָב עַל־יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחֹו לֵאמֹר   26:3

Numb. 26:3  Then Moses spoke, with Eleazar, the priest, with them in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho saying,

מִבֶּן עֶשְׂרִים שָׁנָה וָמָעְלָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֶת־מֹשֶׁה וּבְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל הַיֹּצְאִים מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם   26:4

Numb. 26:4  “From the age of twenty years and up,” as the Lord had commanded Moses.  And the children of Israel, those having come out of the land of Egypt were:

רְאוּבֵן בְּכֹור יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּנֵי רְאוּבֵן חֲנֹוךְ מִשְׁפַּחַת הַחֲנֹכִי לְפַלּוּא מִשְׁפַּחַת הַפַּלֻּאִי   26:5

Numb. 26:5  Of Reuben, the first born of Israel:  The children of Reuben:  Of Hanoch, the families of the Hanochite; of Pallu, the families of the Palluite;

לְחֶצְרֹן מִשְׁפַּחַת הַחֶצְרֹונִי לְכַרְמִי מִשְׁפַּחַת הַכַּרְמִי   26:6

Numb. 26:6  of Hezron, the families of the Hezronite; of Carmi, the families of the Carmite.

אֵלֶּה מִשְׁפְּחֹת הָרֻאוּבֵנִי וַיִּהְיוּ פְקֻדֵיהֶם שְׁלֹשָׁה וְאַרְבָּעִים אֶלֶף וּשְׁבַע מֵאֹות וּשְׁלֹשִׁים   26:7

וּבְנֵי פַלּוּא אֱלִיאָב   26:8

Numb. 26:8  And of the the sons of Pallu was Eliab.

וּבְנֵי אֱלִיאָב נְמוּאֵל וְדָתָן וַאֲבִירָם הוּא־דָתָן וַאֲבִירָם (קְרוּאֵי) [קְרִיאֵי] הָעֵדָה אֲשֶׁר הִצּוּ עַל־מֹשֶׁה   26:9

וְעַל־אַהֲרֹן בַּעֲדַת־קֹרַח בְּהַצֹּתָם עַל־יְהוָה

Numb. 26:9  And the sons of Eliab were Nemuel and Dathan and Abiram.  That was the Dathan and Abiram called of the congregation, who strove against Moses and against Aaron in the company of Korach on their striving against the Lord,

The word in parentheses, being spelled with a vav, is incorrect.  It is normally spelled with a yad.  The correction is in the brackets.

וַתִּפְתַּח הָאָרֶץ אֶת־פִּיהָ וַתִּבְלַע אֹתָם וְאֶת־קֹרַח בְּמֹות הָעֵדָה בַּאֲכֹל הָאֵשׁ אֵת חֲמִשִּׁים וּמָאתַיִם   26:10

אִישׁ וַיִּהְיוּ לְנֵס

Numb. 26:10   and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed them and Korach up in the death of the company, with the fire devouring the two hundred and fifty men, and they were for a sign,

וּבְנֵי־קֹרַח לֹא־מֵתוּ   26:11

Numb. 26:11   but the sons of Korach did not die.

Here is where we learn that the entire family of Korach did not perish.  His sons survived to carry on the blood line, although little more is revealed about their life.  See my remarks following Numb. 16:35.

Numb. 26:23   The sons of Issachar according to their families:  Of Tola, the families of the Tolaite; of Puah, the families of the Punite;

Odd that the families of Puah are not called Puahite. It’s possible that the last word in the verse should be spelled with a vav in place of the nun.  The term doesn’t appear again in the bible, so it may be difficult to ascertain what might be correct here.

Numb. 26:59   And the name of the wife of Amram was Jochebed daughter of Levi, who was born to Levi in Egypt.  And she bore Aaron and Moses for Amram, and Miriam, their sister.

From what we have been told, Jochebed was Levi’s daughter, that is, Amram’s aunt (see Exod. 6:20).  Thus Moses, Aaron, and Miriam were descendants of Levi through both of their parents.

כִּי לֹא־נִתַּן לָהֶם נַחֲלָה בְּתֹוךְ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל

Numb. 26:62   And their numbers were twenty-three thousand, every male from age one month and up, but they were not numbered among the children of Israel, because an inheritance was not given to them among the children of Israel.

אֵלֶּה פְּקוּדֵי מֹשֶׁה וְאֶלְעָזָר הַכֹּהֵן אֲשֶׁר פָּקְדוּ אֶת־בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּעַרְבֹת מֹואָב עַל יַרְדֵּן יְרֵחֹו   26:63

Numb. 26:63   These were the ones numbered by Moses and Eleazar, the priest, when they numbered the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by the Jordan at Jericho.

Numb. 26:64   And among these there was not a man from those numbered by Moses and Aaron, the priest, when they numbered the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.

כִּי־אָמַר יְהוָה לָהֶם מֹות יָמֻתוּ בַּמִּדְבָּר וְלֹא־נֹותַר מֵהֶם אִישׁ כִּי אִם־כָּלֵב בֶּן־יְפֻנֶּה וִיהֹושֻׁעַ בִּן־נוּן   26:65

Numb. 26:65   For the Lord had said regarding them, “They shall surely die in the wilderness.”  So there was not one man left from them, except only Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.

From vss. 26:64 and 26:65, we may conclude that the numbering described in this chapter took place near the end of the forty-year period of the Israelites’ wilderness wandering.
