Bible study 121 – Numbers 4Posted: February 1, 2017
Each Levite clan is given specific responsibilities: The Gershonites handle transportation of the fabrics, the Merarites handle the structure, and the Kohathites get to carry all the super-holy furniture. But if they see or touch the holy furniture, they die; only Moses, Aaron and his two sons can step into the tabernacle. So Aaron and his sons must wrap up all the furniture in cloth before the rest of the Levites take apart the structure.
But the Kohathites must not go in to look on the holy things even for a moment; otherwise they will die.
