They shall lift the tent, and all the items for it.

And the foreigner going in it, let him die! 52 And [4shall camp 1the 2sons 3of Israel], every man in his own order, and every man according to his own governing authority, with their force. 53 But the Levites -- let them camp opposite round about the tent of the testimony, and there shall not be sin among the sons of Israel. And [4shall guard 1the 2Levites 3themselves] the watch of the tent of the testimony. 54 And [4did 1the 2sons 3of Israel] according to all as much as the  lord gave charge to Moses and Aaron -- thus they did.
