Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Num. 26-27

26:
After that little massacre, God wants another census from Moses
The results are as follows:

Reuben – 43,700
Simeon – 22,200
Gad – 40,500
Judah – 76,300
Zebulun – 60,500
Issachar – 64,300
Manasseh – 52,700; Ephraim – 32,500; (Joseph – 85,200)
Benjamin – 45,600
Dan – 64,400
Asher – 53,400
Naphtali – 45,400
Some Extra Fuckers – 230
Israel w/o Levi – 601,730
Levi – 23,000
Israel w/ Levi – 624,730

This are all the children of the original people from Exodus, since God promised all of them would die in the desert.

Considering the original census from Chapter 1, the amount of conscription worthy Israelites has dropped by roughly 2,000 people. When focusing on specific tribes, some increased (like Manasseh) and other fell quite drastically (like Simeon).

27:
Then a few women, whose fathers had died and they had no brothers, came to Moses and said it was unfair that they don’t get their father’s inheritance
God tells Moses that they right and tells him to institute a new inheritance law, it goes as follows (You are the father):
You –> Sons –> Daughters –> Brothers –> Uncles
Then something bizarre happens
God tells Moses to climb the mountain of Abiram to see Canaan for himself
God also tells Moses that he will soon go the way of Aaron
Moses asks God to have a new leader for Israel and God suggests Joshua
Joshua is properly ordained by Eleazar in front of the whole congregation

So why did I say it was bizarre? Because, the original plan for the Torah incuded only four books and had Moses die at the end of Numbers. It just so happened that the original Deuteronomic Code was ascribed to Moses and later incorporated into his life story. To fix this, the part where Moses died was moved to the end of Deuteronomy, but apparenty this prelude wasn’t. The Deuteronomic Code itself was a separate law code (presumably made by the Deuteronomists).
