Why does the Torah see fit to add that Moshe counted them in Midbar Sinai?


Ramban (on Pasuk 18): To teach us that although he began to count them immediately, 1 he did not manage to complete the census on the same day. 2


Rashbam: Because when they were counted a second time they were counted in the Plains of Mo'av, as the Torah states in Shemos 26:3.


Refer to 1:18:1:1.


Ramban: As if to say 'Moshe counted them in the same location but not on the same day.
