EXPLANATION OF FIELDS
*****************************************
B1 Only the male Israelites are numbered in most of these verses and only
those who were of the age to go to war which was 20
years old.
*****************************************
B2 Num 3:39, Male Levites
total 22,000
*****************************************
B3 603,550 males over 20 years from the 11
tribes excluding the tribe of Levi which is given separately
*****************************************
B4 Here you can enter what you guess the average life expectancy of the
Israelites. I used 50 years old. The number you
use will effect the outcome of your projection.
*****************************************
B5 % of Israelites under 20 B1 / B4
To find the number of males under 20 years old, divide 20 by the average
life expectancy, to find those under 20 were .4
of the number over 20
*****************************************
B6 Number of male Israelites of the 11 tribes under 20 = B5 x B3 24,1420
*****************************************
B7 Total males of the 11 tribes = B6 + B3 = 844,970
*****************************************
B8 Total Males = All male Levites and all males from the 11 tribes = B7+ B2
= 866,970
*****************************************
B13 Females being half the population, double the total males to find all
the males and females at the time the Israelites were counted in the book of
Numbers 1,733,940
*****************************************
B15 Benjamites smallest of all tribes... 1_SAMUEL 009021` And Saul answered
and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel?
If the Benjamites were the smallest of all the tribes then every tribe was
larger than them.
*****************************************
B16 If the Benjamites had 200,080 males of fighting
age (20) 2 Chr 14:8
and they were the smallest of all the tribes then all other tribes had more
than 200,080 males of fighting age.
*****************************************
B17 What happened to the Benjamites, how did they
become the smallest of all tribes, The other 11 tribes destroyed
their towns and killed their families. Judges 20:1221:23. After the other
tribes wiped out the Benjamite families they were forced to kill other
complete Arab families and take their virgin daughters or to kidnap Arab
girls for their wives.
*****************************************
B18 If the Benjamites were the smallest tribes of the
descendants of Jacob and there were more of them in Israel than 10 other
tribes combined, then those other 10 tribes were living outside of Israel at
the time they were counted.
*****************************************
B21 Because the Tribe of Judah was the only tribe left some what in tact in
I Samuel, this tribe will be used to project population growth.
*****************************************
B23 When counted in I Samuel there were 500,000
men of fighting age of the tribe of Judah. When they were counted in the
book of Numbers, there were 74,600
*****************************************
B24 Increase in the males of the tribe of Judah
= 500,000  74,600 = 425,400 from the time of
Numbers until I Samuel
*****************************************
B26 Here I let you do your own research and plug in the variable of what
year BC the Israelites were counted in the book of Numbers. I used 1400
BC
*****************************************
B27 Here I let you do your own research and plug in the variable in what
year BC the male Israelites were counted in Israel. I used 1000
BC
*****************************************
B28 The number of years between the time they were counted = B26
 B27 = 400
*****************************************
B32 How many times greater the number of Males of fighting age (tribe of
Judah) were in I Sam (I Sam 2:49 / Num 1:23) … 500,000
/ 74,600 = 6.702412869
*****************************************
B34 Average population increase per year = B32 / B28 or Total population
increase / number of years = .016756032 Average
population increase per year.
*****************************************
B36 The total number of Israelites that existed in I Sam = the Average
population per year x the number of years x the number of Israelites counted
in the book of Numbers. (B34 x B28) X B13
= 11,621,582
*****************************************
B38 The present year AD I used 2004
*****************************************
B39 The number of years since the Israelites were counted in the book of
Numbers and today = Today's date + what year BC they were counted in the
book of Numbers = B26+B36 = 3,404 years
*****************************************
B40 Total increase = Increase per year x number of years since they were
counted in Numbers = B37 x B34 = 57.03753351 times
more now when in the wilderness.
*****************************************
B42 The Number of Israelites today would be B40
Increase in population since they were in the wilderness x the number that
existed when they were counted in Numbers B13 = 98,899,661
