41 And Moses delivered the number of the firstfruits of the Lord to Eleazar the priest, as had been commanded him, 42 Out of the half of the children of Israel, which he had separated for them that had been in the battle. 43 But out of the half that fell to the rest of the multitude, that is to say, out of the three hundred thirty-seven thousand five hundred sheep, 44 And out of the thirty-six thousand oxen, 45 And out of the thirty thousand five hundred asses,
46 And out of the sixteen thousand persons, 47 Moses took the fiftieth head, and gave it to the Levites that watched in the tabernacle of the Lord, as the Lord had commanded. 48 And when the commanders of the army, and the tribunes and centurions were come to Moses, they said: 49 We thy servants have reckoned up the number of the fighting men, whom we had under our hand, and not so much as one was wanting. 50 Therefore we offer as gifts to the Lord what gold every one of us could find in the booty, in garters and tablets, rings and bracelets, and chains, that thou mayst pray to the Lord for us.
51 And Moses and Eleazar the priest received all the gold in divers kinds, 52 In weight sixteen thousand seven hundred and fifty sicles, from the tribunes and from the centurions. 53 For that which every one had taken in the booty was his own. 54 And that which was received they brought into the tabernacle of the testimony, for a memorial of the children of Israel before the Lord.
