They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the Itabernacle. 51 aSo when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But bthe Ilayman who comes near shall be put to death. 52 aThe sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies. 53 aBut the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be bno wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. cSo the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.” 54 Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the LORD had commanded Moses, so they did.
