From Thirty Years Old and Upward Numbers 4

Moses, Aaron, and the other Israelite leaders obeyed the LORD ALMIGHTY. They counted the tribe of Levi by their families and clans as commanded. This was done to find out how many men there were between the ages of thirty and fifty. These men were those who could work at the sacred tent.

There were two thousand seven hundred fifty (2,750) Kohathites. There were two thousand six hundred thirty (2,630) Gershonites. Lastly, there were three thousand two hundred (3,200) Merarites. This made a total of eight thousand five hundred eighty. They were all assigned their duties.


Numbers 4

34 And Moses and Aaron and the chief of the congregation numbered the sons of the Kohathites after their families, and after the house of their fathers,

35 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation:

36 And those that were numbered of them by their families were two thousand seven hundred and fifty.

37 These were they that were numbered of the families of the Kohathites, all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, which Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

38 And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon, throughout their families, and by the house of their fathers,

39 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation,

40 Even those that were numbered of them, throughout their families, by the house of their fathers, were two thousand and six hundred and thirty.

41 These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons of Gershon, of all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, whom Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment of the Lord.

42 And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, throughout their families, by the house of their fathers,

43 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation,

44 Even those that were numbered of them after their families, were three thousand and two hundred.

45 These be those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the word of the Lord by the hand of Moses.

46 All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron and the chief of Israel numbered, after their families, and after the house of their fathers,

47 From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that came to do the service of the ministry, and the service of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation.

48 Even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and five hundred and fourscore,

49 According to the commandment of the Lord they were numbered by the hand of Moses, every one according to his service, and according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as the Lord commanded Moses.


This is the commandment of the LORD of Israel to number the tribes and Moses did so. Everyone was numbered according to his service and burden. When CHRIST returns, the same process will pick back up as strange as it may be to think.

The book of Ezekiel tells us this very prophecy. The sons of Levi and the house of Aaron would be reestablished for the nature of the chosen service and burden.

These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
