Numbers 26

Some chapters are full of distractions. This one, full of names, raised a few questions about who is who and why they are spelled differently in some versions. There are many issues with names: pronunciation, transcription, and translation. I have tried to avoid thinking too much about them, hoping I could write a routine after the fact that would find my inconsistencies and compare the name with one derived from the Masoretic markings. Maybe later...

About verse 30, the pattern of the list changes for a few verses.  There are a number of other pattern variations. E.g. verse 44.

Verse 33 the number of שׁם does not agree in the Hebrew so is it the names of rather than the name of? I don't always make such a 'correction', but in this case שׁם could have been שׁמות (see 27:1 for number agreement).

Note also the opening and closing brackets in the lists, done by a repetition of the patriarch's name. A few of the names occur for the first time here. Many are repeats of names we have already encountered, sometimes once, sometimes many times. I have listed the names below the chapter.

Odd positioning of the atnah in verse 51, right in the middle of a number (the music keeping you in suspense). Note the music begins on a note other than the tonic as noted below at the summary places that structure the list. Verse 51 gets an ornament to begin its phrase. We should sing the chapter.
Rather than conscript, census or even enrollment could be used. I might revisit this set of glosses (joke). פקד

Interesting that babies were not enrolled until they were a month old.

who took a census of the children of Israel, in the steppes of Moab at the Jordan by Jericho.
3e 4C 14
וּבְאֵ֙לֶּה֙ לֹא־הָ֣יָה אִ֔ישׁ מִפְּקוּדֵ֣י מֹשֶׁ֔ה וְאַהֲרֹ֖ן הַכֹּהֵ֑ן
אֲשֶׁ֥ר פָּקְד֛וּ אֶת־בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל בְּמִדְבַּ֥ר סִינָֽי
64 And in these there was not a man of the conscription of Moses and Aaron the priest,
who was in the census of the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sinai.
3d 4B 18
כִּֽי־אָמַ֤ר יְהוָה֙ לָהֶ֔ם מ֥וֹת יָמֻ֖תוּ בַּמִּדְבָּ֑ר
וְלֹא־נוֹתַ֤ר מֵהֶם֙ אִ֔ישׁ כִּ֚י אִם־כָּלֵ֣ב בֶּן־יְפֻנֶּ֔ה וִיהוֹשֻׁ֖עַ בִּן־נֽוּן
65 For Yahweh had said to them, Death they will die in the wilderness,
and there was left of them no person except Caleb, child of Jepunah, and Joshua, child of Nun.
