542. Did God tell Moses to number the Levites?


And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying,

Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. Numbers 3:14-15


The LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying, Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel. Numbers 1:48-49

But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses. Numbers 2:33
