Numbers  

The book of Numbers draws the conclusion that, after forty years of struggling, the chosen people were worse off than when they started.

Numbers is a chronicle of how to endure everything and go nowhere. The final message is that we must worship and obey God or be cursed with frustration, futility, and failure.

The Torah is the central reference of the religious Judaic tradition. It has a range of meanings. It can most specifically mean the first 5 books of the 24 books of the Tanakh. The term "Torah" means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it; it can mean the continued narrative from Book of Genesis to the end of the Tanakh, and it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching, culture and practice.

45 Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.
46 But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.
47 For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,
48 Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:
49 But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.
50 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
51 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.
52 But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony.
53 And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
