Numbers 1:53, Why did God choose the Levites?

Question: Why did God choose the congregation to do this job? Do yo know how many were they? "but the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the Testimony, that there may be no wrath on the congregation of the children of Israel; and the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the Testimony." Answer: Like many of God's choices, He does not tell us exactly why He chose the Levites. Moses and Aaron were of the tribe of Levi, so that may be part of God's reason. They also do a census of Levi in Numbers 3, so we know there were 22,000 males. They had the great privilege and responsibility of caring for the tabernacle. -PJ
