“Then David said, ‘No one is to carry the ark of God but the Levites; for the Lord chose them to carry the ark of God and to minister to Him forever.’” 1 Chronicles 15:2
The tribe of Levi surfaced early in the development of the community of God’s people. Following Israel’s departure from Egypt and venture into the wilderness, the Levites soon distinguished themselves by their fervent loyalty to God and to Moses, His servant.
In Exodus 32:26 the scripture says,
“…and then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, ‘Whoever is for the Lord, come to me!’ And all the sons of Levi gathered to him.”
The Levites made a decisive step that day which did not go unnoticed by the Lord.
Of this same event, Deuteronomy 10:8 says, “At that time the Lord set apart the tribe of Levi to carry the ark of the cov-enant of the Lord, to stand before the Lord to serve Him and bless His name until this day.”
As the Lord continued to form and shape the community of His people, the role and function of the Levites also developed and was more clearly defined.
According to God’s instructions, the sons of Aaron were to be raised up as priests, with specific duties and functions. Their kinsman, the Levites, were to be given unto them as helps ministers in the service of the tabernacle, fulfilling the order of worship, as ordained by the purpose of God. They where wholly given unto the sons of Aaron for support and help, while the priests (Aaron’s sons), were strictly instructed to keep their priesthood.
The Levites were tasked with the role of functioning as the singers, musicians and the leaders of the singing in the Tabernacle of David.
