48 For the Lord said to Moses, 48 The LORD had said to Moses:
49 Only the tribe of Levi is not to be numbered among the children of Israel, 49 "You must not count the tribe of Levi or include them in the census of the other Israelites.
50 But to them you are to give the care of the Tent of meeting with its vessels and everything in it: they are to take up the Tent, and be responsible for everything to do with it, and put up their tents round it. 50 Instead, appoint the Levites to be in charge of the tabernacle of the Testimony--over all its furnishings and everything belonging to it. They are to carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings; they are to take care of it and encamp around it.
51 And when the Tent of meeting goes forward, the Levites are to take it down; and when it is to be put up, they are to do it: any strange person who comes near it is to be put to death. 51 Whenever the tabernacle is to move, the Levites are to take it down, and whenever the tabernacle is to be set up, the Levites shall do it. Anyone else who goes near it shall be put to death.
52 The children of Israel are to put up their tents, every man in his tent-circle round his flag. 52 The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each man in his own camp under his own standard.
53 But the tents of the Levites are to be round the Tent of meeting, so that wrath may not come on the children of Israel: the Tent of meeting is to be in the care of the Levites. 53 The Levites, however, are to set up their tents around the tabernacle of the Testimony so that wrath will not fall on the Israelite community. The Levites are to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the Testimony."
54 So the children of Israel did as the Lord had given orders to Moses. 54 The Israelites did all this just as the LORD commanded Moses.
