1:50 But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that [belong] to it they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.
1:51 And when the tabernacle sets forward, the Levites shall take it down and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up and the stranger that comes near shall be put to death.
1:52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.
1:53 But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony.
1:54 And the children of Israel did according to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so did they.
