Numbers Chapter 4 Summary

Numbers chapter 4 summary concerns the duties of the Levite family and clan. This chapter is that simple, it is about the jobs performed by the Levites for the house of Aaron in the Tabernacle.

It began as God commanded Moses and Aaron to number the three sons of Levi (Gershon, Kohath, and Merari), and to start with Kohath. They took them from the ages of 30 to 50 years, all who enter the host to do the work in the tabernacle.

The sons of Kohath had a specific job; they did things like taking down the veils and covering the ark of the testimony. This was their “burden” in the tabernacle. The same went forward for the sons of Gershon, 30 to 50 years of age requirement to perform. This was the age of service and work in the tabernacle, and also for the sons of Merari.

These are the Levites who came forward to work in the vineyard of the tabernacle of the congregation for the house of Aaron. And this is the summary of Numbers chapter 4, glory to the Highest.
