Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 10 - Evening

"The Lord said to Moses, 'Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest to assist him. 
They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the Tent of Meeting by doing the work 
of the tabernacle.
 They are to take care of all the furnishings of the Tent of Meeting, fulfilling the obligations of the Israelites by doing the work of the tabernacle. Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are the Israelites who are to be given
wholly to him.
 Appoint Aaron and his sons to
serve as priests; anyone else who approaches
the sanctuary must be put to death.'

- Numbers 3:5-10

The Secret Service for Tabernacle Security


In Numbers chapter 3 the tribe of Levi is counted. Levi is not counted as the other tribes which only counted the men of fighting age, twenty years or older. Instead, in chapter 3 all the males of the tribe of Levi older than a month were counted. In chapter 4 all the males of the tribe of Levi who are thirty-fifty years of age were counted. The other tribes men were accepted into military service at the age of twenty, but the men of the tribe of Levi were not permitted to begin the services inside the Tabernacle until they were thirty and they retired at the age of fifty.

The Levites were responsible for two specific tasks at this time:

  1. “keep guard” or samar mismeret from verse 3:7 “perform duties for him.” This Hebrew phrase is made up of both a verb and a noun from the same Hebrew root, making this a rhetorical phrase. The basic meaning of the verb samar is “to guard” and “to keep watch.” The Hebrew noun mismeret comes from the same root as samar to say “the guard” or “the watch.”
  2. “to do the heavy work” required to move the Tabernacle which include disassembly and re-assembly of the pieces to set the Tabernacle back up at the new camp location (‘abad ‘bodah)

The Levites were the human cherubim or the living gargoyles for the Lord’s Tabernacle assigned to guard the gates from any intruders who were not priests. The Levites were to be the ones who, like a bolt of lightning, fulfilled Gods’ command “anyone else who approaches the sanctuary must be put to death.” The Hebrew word is “stranger who approaches” which refers to anyone who does not have authorization.  Anyone entering any portion of the Tabernacle without authorization would be struck down by the Levitical guards.

Likewise, during time of movement for the Israelite camp, the Levites were responsible for the packing, the care, the transportation, to protection and the reassembly of the tabernacle.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Of little worth is the recommendation which
has for its prop the
defamation of another."
- Tertullian



Something to Ponder??

“He says, ‘Dan is a lion’s whelp’ (Deut. 33:22). And in naming the tribe of Dan, he clearly declared the tribe from which the Antichrist is destined to spring. Just as Christ comes from the tribe of Judah, so the Antichrist is to come from the tribe of Dan.” – Hippolytus, 200 AD

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Enduo (Gr) – Clothe (Put On) Eng) - enduo is Greek word that means "to sink into," "to put on," "to clothe one's self." Enduo is a compound word made up of en meaning "in" and duo meaning "to sink," "to go in," "to go under." The word enduo is used to refer to putting on clothes but its meaning is "to go in and sink" or "to go in and under." Thus, enduo is used to refer to putting on the character, the nature and the qualities. This is how the word enduo was used from the days of Homer until the days of Paul when he wrote "put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness." (Ephesians 4:24)  

The biblical city of Jezreel has been located and excavated. Jezreel is prominent in the reign and death of Jezebel and Jehu’s revolt in 2 Kings 9.
