In Numbers 3, we see the Lord instructing Moses to take a census of the Levites, who were to serve as the priests of Israel. The Lord commands that all males from the age of one month and older were to be counted. The Lord then instructs Moses to assign the Levites to the service of the tabernacle, and to assign them to the various tasks of the tabernacle. The Lord also commands that the Levites were to be redeemed from the other tribes of Israel, and that they were to be given to Aaron and his sons as a special gift from the Lord.
This chapter is significant in that it shows the Lord's special favor towards the Levites. The Lord chose them to serve as the priests of Israel, and He gave them special privileges and responsibilities. This chapter also shows the importance of the tabernacle and the various tasks associated with it. The Lord was very specific in His instructions to Moses, and it is clear that He wanted the tabernacle to be a place of holiness and reverence.
Overall, this chapter is a reminder of the Lord's special favor towards the Levites, and of the importance of the tabernacle and its associated tasks. It is a reminder of the Lord's faithfulness and His desire to provide for His people.
