CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
31:30 One of fifty - Whereas the former part was one of five hundred; the reason of the difference is, partly, because this was taken out of the peoples portion, whose hazards being less than the others, their gains also in all reason were to be less: partly because this was to be distributed into more hands, the Levites being now numerous, whereas the priests were but few.
They will serve Aaron and the whole community, performing their sacred duties in and around the Tabernacle.
They will also maintain all the furnishings of the sacred tent, serving in the Tabernacle on behalf of all the Israelites.
But as the Levites go about all their assigned duties at the Tabernacle, they must be careful not to go near any of the sacred objects or the altar. If they do, both you and they will die.
The Levites must join you in fulfilling their responsibilities for the care and maintenance of the Tabernacle, but no unauthorized person may assist you.
Give this share of the army's half to Eleazar the priest as an offering to the LORD.
So Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.
