They shall carry the Tabernacle and all its utensils and they shall minister to it; and they shall encamp around the Tabernacle. 51When the Tabernacle journeys, the Levi’im shall take it down, and when the Tabernacle encamps, the Levi’im shall erect it, and an alien who approaches shall die. 52The Children of Yisra’el shall encamp, every man at his camp and every man at his banner, according to their legion. The Levi’im shall encamp around the Tabernacle of the Testimony so that there shall be no wrath upon the assembly of the Children of Yisra’el, and the Levi’im shall safeguard the watch of the Tabernacle of the Testimony.”

53The Children of Yisra’el did everything that HaShem commanded Moshe, so did they do.
