Numbers 1:51 And when the Tabernacle goeth forth, the Leuites shall take it downe: and when the Tabernacle is to be pitched, ye Leuites shall set it vp: for the stranger that commeth nere, shalbe slaine. Numbers 1:52 Also the children of Israel shal pitch their tentes, euery man in his campe, and euery man vnder his standerd throughout their armies. Numbers 1:53 But the Leuites shall pitch rounde about the Tabernacle of the Testimonie, least vengeance come vpon the Congregation of the children of Israel, and the Leuites shall take the charge of the Tabernacle of the Testimonie. Numbers 1:54 So the children of Israel did according to all that ye Lord had comanded Moses: so did they.
