month of that year he said, “From the whole community of Israel, record
the names of all the warriors by their clans and families. List all the men
twenty years old or older who are able to go to war. You and Aaron must
register the troops, and you will be assisted by one family leader from
each tribe.
“These are the tribes and the names of the leaders who will assist you:
