Numbers 4:19 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
4:19 To his service - To that which is peculiarly allotted to him, the services, and burdens being equally distributed among them.
Whenever it is time for the Tabernacle to move, the Levites will take it down. And when it is time to stop, they will set it up again. But any unauthorized person who goes too near the Tabernacle must be put to death.
The camp will be ready to move when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the sacred articles. The Kohathites will come and carry these things to the next destination. But they must not touch the sacred objects, or they will die. So these are the things from the Tabernacle that the Kohathites must carry.
"Do not let the Kohathite clans be destroyed from among the Levites!
2 Samuel 6:6
But when they arrived at the threshing floor of Nacon, the oxen stumbled, and Uzzah reached out his hand and steadied the Ark of God.
