Numbers 4:23
4:21-33 We have here the charge of the other two families of the Levites, which, though not so honourable as the first, yet was necessary, and to be done regularly. All the things were delivered them by name. It intimates the care God takes of his church and every member of it. The death of the saints is represented as the taking down of the tabernacle, 2Co 5:1, and the putting it off, 2Pe 1:14. All shall be raised up in the great day, when these vile bodies shall be made like the glorious body of Jesus Christ, and so shall be for ever with the Lord.From thirty years old and upward, until fifty years old,

shalt thou number them,.... Take an account how many there are of that age, and so fit for service (a); See Gill on Numbers 4:3,

to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation; as the rest of the Levites; see Numbers 4:3;

(a) "ad militandum militiam", Montanus, Drusius.
