Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children

month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty
and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

NUM 3:45 Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the
children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their
cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD.
