 26:1
 26:2
26:1 It was now after the plague. God spoke to Moses and Eleazar (son of Aaron the Priest), saying,
Vayehi acharey hamagefah. Vayomer Adonay el-Moshe ve'el El'azar ben-Aharon hakohen lemor.
26:2 'Take a census of the entire Israelite community by paternal lines, [counting] every male over 20 years old who is fit for duty.'
Se'u et-rosh kol-adat beney-Yisra'el miben esrim shanah vamalah leveyt avotam kol-yotse tsava beYisra'el.



Commentary:

after the plague
  The Midianites were not attacked until later, see Numbers 31:2 (Lekach Tov).
