The men:
The Septuagint reads here the same as in the parallel place, Υιοι Βαιθαλεμ, εκατον εικοσιτρεις; υιοι Ατωφα (Alex. Ανετωφα) πεντηκονταεξ; "The children of Bethlehem, one hundred twenty and three; the children of Netophah, fifty and six." Though this reading is not found in any Hebrew manuscript yet collated, it is doubtless the true one.

Bethlehem:

Ezra 2:21-22 The children of Bethlehem, an hundred twenty and three. ... The men of Netophah, fifty and six.
