32These are the countings of the Children of Yisra’el according to their fathers’ households; all the countings of the camps according to their legions, six hundred and three thousand, five hundred and fifty.

33The Levi’im were not counted among the Children of Yisra’el, as HaShem had commanded Moshe. 34The Children of Yisra’el did everything that HaShem had commanded Moshe – so they encamped according to their banners and so they journeyed, every man according to his families, by his fathers’ household.
