115. Three heads are together in these camps, SINCE THREE TRIBES ARE IN THE CAMP OF REUBEN. All are in a special count, and the count of these heads IS AS FOLLOWS. One head is 46,500, THE CENSUS OF THE TRIBE OF REUBEN. The second head is 59,300, THE CENSUS OF THE TRIBE OF SHIMON. The third head is 45,650. THAT IS THE CENSUS OF THE TRIBE OF GAD.
134. "Now the manna was like coriander (Heb. gad) seed" (Bemidbar 11:7). Rabbi Yosi said: "GAD SEED" HAS THE SAME MEANING AS, "RAIDERS (HEB. GEDUD)," NAMELY to establish seed and armies in the land, as it is written: "Gad, shall gather a regiment" (Beresheet 49:19). As the seed of Gad took their portion in another land, MEANING ACROSS THE JORDAN RIVER, the manna similarly descended to rest on Yisrael outside the Holy Land, NAMELY IN THE DESERT.
