For the Lord had told Moses:
"Do not register or take a census of the tribe of Levi with the [other] Israelites.

Whenever the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down, and whenever it is to stop at a campsite, the Levites are to set it up. Any unauthorized person who comes near [it] must be put to death.b
