Aaron’s staff was among them.Moses placed the staffs before the LORD in the tent of the testimony.The next day Moses entered the tent of the testimony and saw that Aaron’s staff, representing the house of Levi, had sprouted, formed buds, blossomed, and produced almonds!Moses then brought out all the staffs from the LORD’s presence to all the Israelites. They saw them, and each man took his own staff.The LORD told Moses,“ Put Aaron’s staff back in front of the testimony to be kept as a sign for the rebels, so that you may put an end to their complaints before me, or else they will die.”So Moses did as the LORD commanded him.
