Numbers 3-4

The Levites:

The tribe of Levi was set apart from the other tribes. They are to become the Priests:

They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the tent of meeting by doing the work of the tabernacle.

Let’s start out with a Trivia Question:  Look below.  Who were the black triangles and why are they not there now? (meaning what did they do)

Hebrew Lineage Organization


God exempted the Levites from the military. He did this because He chose the whole tribe to assist the priests, Aaron’s “family” within the tribe of Levi, in the service of the Tabernacle.

The tabernacle responsibilities of each group were as follows:

  • Gershonites-curtains and coverings
  • Kohathites-furniture and utensils
  • Merarites- boards and bars

A prominent emphasis in this book appears again at the end of this chapter:  Moses carried out the Lord’s commands exactly. (for now!)

Short Post!  Nice!!!  Have a great day.   Wash your hands… a terrible stomach bug going around this week.  All 3 of my kids have it. That’s why I am posting at 2:15 a.m. ☹️
