48 For the LORD had spoken unto

49

Only thou shalt not number the
tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of
them among the children of Israel:
50But thou shalt appoint the Levites
over the 10 tabernacle of 10 11 testimony,
and over all the vessels thereof, and over
all things that belong to it: they shall
bear the 12 tabernacle, and all the vessels
thereof; and they shall minister unto
it, and shall encamp round about the
12 tabernacle.

51 And when the 12 tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the 12 tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

52 And the children of Israel shall pitch peh. 2.2, 34. their tents, Pevery man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, 13 throughout their hosts.

Levites, whom Moses and Aaron and
the 22 chief of Israel numbered, after
their families, and after the house of
their fathers,

even unto fifty years old, every one that
came to do the 26 service of the ministry,
and the service of the burden 26 in the
tabernacle of the congregation,

them, were eight thousand and five hun-

49 According to the commandment of the LORD they were numbered by the gver. 15, 24, hand of Moses, every one according to 27 his service, and 28 according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him 28, as the LORD commanded Moses.

ND the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,

2 Command the children of Israel, that Lev. 13. 3, they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead1:

3 Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put & 19. 11, 13. them; that they defile not their camps, din the midst whereof I dwell.

& 31. 19. d Lev. 26. 11, 12. 2 Cor. 6. 16.

4 And the children of Israel did so, and
put them out without the camp: as the
LORD spake unto Moses, 80 did the
children of Israel.

5 And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,

6 Speak unto the children of Israel. Lev. 6. 2, 3. When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do 2a trespass 2 against the LORD, and that person be guilty;

Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass 9 with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.

8 But if the man have no 3 kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.
