the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
unto Aaron and say unto him, When thou lightest the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the candlestick.
3And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps thereof
over against the candlestick, as the LORD commanded Moses.
this work of the candlestick was of beaten gold, unto the shaft thereof, unto the flowers thereof, was beaten work: according
unto the pattern which the LORD had shewed Moses, so he made the candlestick.
5And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
the Levites from among the children of Israel, and cleanse them.
7And thus shalt thou do unto them, to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let
them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.
8Then let them take a young bullock with his meat offering, even fine flour mingled
with oil, and another young bullock shalt thou take for a sin offering.
9And thou shalt bring the Levites before the tabernacle of the congregation: and thou shalt gather
the whole assembly of the children of Israel together:
thou shalt bring the Levites before the LORD: and the children of Israel shall put their hands upon the Levites:
11And Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD for an offering of the children
of Israel, that they may execute the service of the LORD.
the Levites shall lay their hands upon the heads of the bullocks: and thou shalt offer the one for a sin offering, and the
other for a burnt offering, unto the LORD, to make an atonement for the Levites.
13And thou shalt set the Levites before Aaron, and before his sons, and offer them for an offering
unto the LORD.
14Thus shalt thou separate
the Levites from among the children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.
15And after that shall the Levites go in to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation: and
thou shalt cleanse them, and offer them for an offering.
they are wholly given unto me from among the children of Israel; instead of such as open every womb, even instead of the firstborn
of all the children of Israel, have I taken them unto me.
all the firstborn of the children of Israel are mine, both man and beast: on the day that I smote every firstborn in the land
of Egypt I sanctified them for myself.
I have taken the Levites for all the firstborn of the children of Israel.
19And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the children of Israel,
to do the service of the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation, and to make an atonement for the children
of Israel: that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary.
20And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation
of the children of Israel, did to the Levites according unto all that the LORD commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so
did the children of Israel unto them.
the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes; and Aaron offered them as an offering before the LORD; and Aaron
made an atonement for them to cleanse them.
after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons:
as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.
23And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and five years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service
of the tabernacle of the congregation:
from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon the service thereof, and shall serve no more:
26But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of the congregation,
to keep the charge, and shall do no service. Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge.
