Exodus 38:26Wrench


Each of the 603550 men (from 20 years old and up) who went through the head-count gave 1 bekah [1/5 ounce], that is, half a shekel, using the sanctuary's [definition of a] shekel.


Note: Again, the men were not numbered.
This head-count is nothing like a modern census / national ID registration system, which is forbidden by YHVH because it's the basis for global debt-slavery.
