Why does it say "Pekudeihem" regarding Bnei Gershon and Merari, but not regarding Kehas?


Malbim (22): This is because Moshe, Aharon and his sons (who were from Kehas) were excluded from the count. "Shomrei Mishmeres ha'Kodesh" excludes the Kohanim, who do not guard. It also excludes them from the next verse; the Kohanim camped in the east, not with the rest of Bnei Kehas in the south.
