Numbers chapter 1-4 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "(Ophiuchus) Moses and (Hercules) Aaron numbered" (1:44), "all those that were numbered of the (Cepheus and Perseus) children of Israel, by the (red radius) house of their (Gemini) fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel; Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty" (1:45-46) is 603,550 men. If each degree represents a man, then there were 1676 laps plus 190° from Ophiuchus which end up in Orion and Auriga. Thus 6 male constellations represent 603,550 Israelite males (Cepheus, Perseus, Castor, Pollux, Orion and Auriga).

49 Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the (Gemini) children of Israel:

50 But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the (red radius) tabernacle of testimony, and over all the (lunar and solar) vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the (red radius) tabernacle, and all the (lunar and solar) vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.

51 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be (Perseus) (red radius) put to death.

33 But the Levites were not numbered among the (Gemini) children of Israel; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

34 And the (Gemini) children of Israel did according to all that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses: so they pitched by their (red radius) standards, and so they set forward, every one after their families, according to the house of their (Gemini) fathers.

3:1 These also are the generations of (Hercules) Aaron and (Ophiuchus) Moses in the day that the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) spake with (Ophiuchus) Moses in (red radius) mount Sinai.

2 And these are the names of the (Gemini, Perseus & Cepheus) sons of (Hercules) Aaron; Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests which were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.

10 And thou shalt appoint (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons, and they shall wait on their priest's office: and the (Perseus) stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

11 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

12 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the (Gemini) children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the (Gemini) children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;

13 Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the Lord.

14 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, (red radius) saying,

15 Number the (Gemini) children of Levi after the house of their (Gemini) fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.

35 And the chief of the (red radius) house of the father of the families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail: these shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward.

36 And under the custody and charge of the sons of Merari shall be the (red radius) (solar) boards of the tabernacle, and the (red radius) bars thereof, and the (red radius) pillars thereof, and the (lunar silver) (solar brass) sockets thereof, and all the (solar and lunar) vessels thereof, and all that serveth thereto,

37 And the (red radius) pillars of the court round about, and their (lunar silver) sockets, and their (red radius) pins, and their (red radius) cords.

40 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Number all the firstborn of the males of the (Gemini) 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 (Gemini) children of Israel; and the (Taurus) cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the (Taurus) cattle of the (Gemini) children of Israel.

42 And (Ophiuchus) Moses numbered, as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded him, all the firstborn among the (Gemini) 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 (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

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

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

47 Thou shalt even take five (lunar silver) 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 (Hercules) Aaron and to his (Gemini) sons.

49 And (Ophiuchus) Moses took the (lunar silver) redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites:

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

51 And (Ophiuchus) Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto (Hercules) Aaron and to his (Gemini) sons, according to the (red radius) word of the (Shekinah) Lord, as the Lord commanded Moses.

4:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses and unto (Hercules) Aaron, saying,

2 Take the sum of the (Gemini) sons of Kohath from among the (Gemini) sons of Levi, after their families, by the house of their (Ophiuchus & Hercules) fathers,

3 From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation.

4 This shall be the service of the (Gemini) sons of Kohath in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, about the most holy things:

5 And when the camp setteth forward, (Hercules) Aaron shall come, and his (Gemini) sons, and they shall take down the (red radius) covering vail, and cover the (solar golden) ark of testimony with it:

6 And shall put thereon the covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of (lunar blue) blue, and shall put in the (red radius) staves thereof.

7 And upon the (solar golden) table of shewbread they shall spread a (lunar blue) cloth of blue, and put thereon the (lunar and solar) dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls, and covers to cover withal: and the continual (solar golden) bread shall be thereon:

8 And they shall spread upon them a cloth of (red radius) scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and shall put in the (red radius) staves thereof.

9 And they shall take a (lunar) cloth of blue, and cover the (red radius) candlestick of the light, and his lamps, and his (red radius) tongs, and his (solar) snuffdishes, and all the (solar) oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it:

10 And they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and shall put it upon a (red radius) bar.

11 And upon the (solar) golden altar they shall spread a (lunar) cloth of blue, and cover it with a covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and shall put to the (red radius) staves thereof:

12 And they shall take all the instruments of ministry, wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a (lunar) cloth of blue, and cover them with a covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and shall put them on a (red radius) bar:

13 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a (lunar) purple cloth thereon:

14 And they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith they minister about it, even the (solar) censers, the (red radius) fleshhooks, and the (red radius) shovels, and the (solar) basons, all the (solar) vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a covering of badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible), and put to the (red radius) staves of it.

15 And when (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the (solar and lunar) vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the (Gemini) sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the (Gemini) sons of Kohath in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation.

16 And to the office of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest pertaineth the (solar golden) oil for the light, and the sweet (red radius stick) incense, and the daily meat (meal) offering, and the (solar golden) anointing oil, and the oversight of all the (red radius) tabernacle, and of all that therein is, in the sanctuary, and in the (solar) vessels thereof.

17 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses and unto (Hercules) Aaron saying,

18 (Perseus) (red radius) Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites:

19 But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach unto the most holy things: (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden:

20 But they shall not go in to (lunar eyeballs) see when the holy things are covered, lest they die.

21 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

22 Take also the sum of the (Gemini) sons of Gershon, throughout the (red radius) houses of their fathers, by their families;

23 From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to do the work in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation.

24 This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, to serve, and for burdens:

25 And they shall bear the (red radius) curtains of the tabernacle, and the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, his covering, and the covering of the badgers' skins (violet skins -- Douay-Rheims Bible) that is above upon it, and the hanging for the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

26 And the (Milky Way) hangings of the court, and the (red radius) hanging for the door of the gate of the court, which is by the (red radius) tabernacle and by the (solar) altar round about, and their (red radius) cords, and all the (red radius) instruments of their service, and all that is made for them: so shall they serve.

27 At the appointment of (Hercules) Aaron and his (Gemini) sons shall be all the service of the sons of the Gershonites, in all their burdens, and in all their service: and ye shall appoint unto them in charge all their burdens.

28 This is the service of the families of the (Gemini) sons of Gershon in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation: and their charge shall be under the hand of Ithamar the son of (Hercules) Aaron the priest.

29 As for the (Gemini) sons of Merari, thou shalt number them after their families, by the house of their fathers;

30 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old shalt thou number them, every one that entereth into the service, to do the work of the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation.

31 And this is the charge of their burden, according to all their service in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation; the (solar) boards of the tabernacle, and the (red radius) bars thereof, and the (red radius) pillars thereof, and (solar or lunar) sockets thereof,

32 And the (red radius) pillars of the court round about, and their (solar or lunar) sockets, and their (red radius) pins, and their (solar) cords, with all their instruments, and with all their service: and by name ye shall reckon the instruments of the charge of their burden.
