52 And the children of Israel shall encamp every man in his camp, and every man by his own standard, according to their hosts;

54 And the children of Israel did so; according to all that Jehovah had commanded Moses, so did they.Read full chapter

The Levites are to be responsible for the care of the tabernacle of the covenant law.(D)”
