“Their only duty at the Tabernacle will be to carry loads. They will carry
the frames of the Tabernacle, the crossbars, the posts, and the bases; also
the posts for the courtyard walls with their bases, pegs, and ropes; and
all the accessories and everything else related to their use. Assign the various loads to each man by name. So these are the duties of the Merarite
