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. ☹️

  1. I always think of the most rediculos stuff. Who done the laundry? Those Priest garments that were holy and set apart to wear when they were in the tabernacle had to be a bit bloody. I write this while thinking about the song Jesus paid it all, all to him I owe, sin had left a crimson stain. He washed it white as snow.
    Praying for you and your kids Patricia💕


  2. Trivia: the black triangles represent the two oldest sons of Aaron
    “Nadab and Abihu, however, died before the Lord when they made an offering with unauthorized fire before him in the Desert of Sinai.”
