For information about numbers used in mathematics and arithmetic, see number.

Numbers is the fourth book of the Bible and of the Pentateuch. It takes its name from the long passages of census information about the Israelites whom Moses led out of Egypt. These occupy much of the book, but it also contains narrative passages about what happened to the Israelites in the Sinai desert, including the famous stories of Balaam's ass and the bronze serpent.

Like the rest of the Pentateuch, Numbers is traditionally thought to have been written by Moses.
