Boys Become Men at Age 20, but actually Boys & Girls Become Adults at Age 20

There are many examples in the scriptures  where YHWH calls any person under 20 – Children, Little One or Child.

Numbers 14:

26 And YHWH spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith YHWH, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

29 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,

30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

31 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

32 But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.

33 And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

35 I YHWH have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

36 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,

37 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before YHWH.

38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

39 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.

20 Year Old & Up May  Go to War

Exodus 38:26;

A bekah for every man,

that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from

twenty years old and upward,

for six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty men.


Males Over 20 were always Numbered together with Older Men and Separated from Children

Exodus 30:11

And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,

12 When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give

every man a ransom for his soul

unto YHWH, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them. 13 This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of YHWH.

14 Every one that passeth among them that are numbered,

from twenty years old and above,

shall give an offering unto YHWH.

II Chronicles 31:17

Both to the genealogy of the priests by the house of their fathers, and the Levites from twenty years old and upward, in their charges by their courses;

Ezra 3:8

Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of Elohim at Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem; and appointed the Levites,

from twenty years old and upward,

to set forward the work of the house of YHWH.
