Number the Firstborns of Israel for the Levites

Number the Firstborns of Israel for the Levites: Moses was commanded to number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel. From a month old and upwards, he was commanded to take down their names.

The nation of Israel would receive their firstborns back and the LORD, HIS Majesty, AHAYAH YAHOWAH of Israel would receive the Levites as HIS own. The ALMIGHTY is so exact and fair, HE made it an even trade. Wow, see below!


Exodus 3

40 And the Lord said unto Moses, Number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names.

41 And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am the Lord) instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel; and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children of Israel.

42 And Moses numbered, as the Lord commanded him, all the firstborn among the children of Israel.

43 And all the firstborn males by the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

44 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

45 Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the Lord.

46 And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the children of Israel, which are more than the Levites;

47 Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them: (the shekel is twenty gerahs:)

48 And thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is to be redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons.

49 And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites:

50 Of the firstborn of the children of Israel took he the money; a thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

51 And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of the Lord, as the Lord commanded Moses.

Moses collected the silver from the extra two hundred seventy-three first-born men and boys, and it amounted to one thousand three hundred sixty-five pieces of silver, weighed according to the official standards.

Then he gave it to Aaron and his sons, just as the LORD ALMIGHTY had commanded. This was the overage amount. The total number of Levites at least one-month-old was twenty-two thousand (22,000). Of the first-born sons; there were twenty-two thousand two hundred seventy-three (22,273) of them.

The Levites from that point forward belonged to the LORD ELOHIM of Israel. They took the place of the first-born sons; their livestock will take the place of the Israelites’ first-born livestock.

However, there were more first-born sons than Levites. The extra two hundred seventy-three men and boys were purchased back from the LORD ELOHIM of Israel. That was the overage; does this make sense? This is a different organized, orderly kingdom. We’ll continue in the next posting.

From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The disciples asked, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
