    Your second sentence is much more formal and stilted; you wouldn't use it in conversation unless you were doing a count of books. Count here means: The result of a tally that reveals the number of items in a set; a quantity counted. Your first example is more "natural" .   I’m wondering, how much space there should be between the end of the word and the edge of the page on the first page and the edge of the page and the beginning of the word on the next page for a title that is centered across 2 pages in a 25 sheet, 80# Cover perfect bind booklet?

    “In this way you are to set the Levites apart from the other Israelites, and the Levites will be mine.” – Numbers (NIV) I’m reading again today from Raymond Brown’s book The Message of Numbers, and he comments on what’s happening in Numbers 8 and God’s command to Moses on how the Levites should be cleansed and set apart for his service. The rules for the census were: "every male individually, from twenty years old and above, all who were able to go to war" (Numbers ), so in other words, this was a count of the potential size of Israel's army. The Levites weren't included because they would not be going into the battles.

      Microsoft Word offers an easy way to add different styles of page numbers to your document. If you’ve got a simple document, it works well enough. But if you’ve worked with Word for a while and use it to create more complex documents, you know page numbering can get a little flaky. So let’s take a closer : Marshall Gunnell. As to why the numbers match in both books, seven month apart, perhaps Moses (or a later editor of his writings) was simply using the census number from the census taken later in the book of Numbers as a reference from a future event to help readers understand who was included in paying for the tabernacle.
