With you, moreover, there shall be a man of each tribe,
each one head of his father’s household.
the leaders of Israel, the heads of their fathers’ households, made an offering (they were the leaders of the tribes; they were the ones who were over the numbered men).
Furthermore, you shall
select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens.
So I took the heads of your tribes, wise and experienced men, and
appointed them heads over you, leaders of thousands and of hundreds, of fifties and of tens, and officers for your tribes.
