11 The Lord also spoke to Moses, saying, 12 “When you take (A)a [a]census of the sons of Israel [b]to number them, then each one of them shall give (B)a ransom for [c]himself to the Lord, when you [d]number them, so that there will be no plague among them when you [e]number them. 13 This is what everyone who [f]is numbered shall give: half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary ((C)the shekel is twenty gerahs), half a shekel as a [g]contribution to the Lord. 14 Everyone who [h]is numbered, from twenty years old and over, shall give the [i]contribution to the Lord. 15 The rich shall not pay more and the poor shall not pay less than the half shekel, when you give the [j]contribution to the Lord to make atonement for [k]yourselves. 16 You shall take the atonement money from the sons of Israel and shall give it for the service of the tent of meeting, that it may be a memorial for the sons of Israel before the Lord, to make atonement for [l]yourselves.”
