Numbers 8


8:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
8:2 Speak to Aaron, and say to him, When thou lightest the
 lamps, the seven lamps shall give light over against the
 candlestick.
8:3 And Aaron did so; he lighted the lamps of it over against
 the candlestick, as the LORD commanded Moses.
8:4 And this work of the candlestick [was of] beaten gold, to
 its shaft, to the flowers of it, [was] beaten work: according
 to the pattern which the LORD had showed Moses, so he made the
 candlestick.
8:5 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
8:6 Take the Levites from among the children of Israel, and
 cleanse them.
8:7 And thus shalt thou do to 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.
8:8 Then 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.
8:9 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the tabernacle of
 the congregation: and thou shalt convene the whole assembly of
 the children of Israel:
8:10 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the LORD: and the
 children of Israel shall put their hands upon the Levites:
8:11 And 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.
8:12 And 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, to the LORD, to make an
 atonement for the Levites.
8:13 And thou shalt set the Levites before Aaron, and before his
 sons, and offer them [for] an offering to the LORD.
8:14 Thus shalt thou separate the Levites from among the
 children of Israel: and the Levites shall be mine.
8:15 And after that shall the Levites go in to perform the
 service of the tabernacle of the congregation: and thou shalt
 cleanse them, and offer them [for] an offering.
8:16 For they [are] wholly given to me from among the children
 of Israel; instead of such as open every womb, [even instead
 of] the first-born of all the children of Israel, have I taken
 them to me.
8:17 For all the first born of the children of Israel [are]
 mine, [both] man and beast: on the day that I smote every
 first-born in the land of Egypt I sanctified them for myself.
8:18 And I have taken the Levites for all the first-born of the
 children of Israel.
8:19 And 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 may be no plague among the children of
 Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh to the sanctuary.
8:20 And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the
 children of Israel, did to the Levites according to all that
 the LORD commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the
 children of Israel to them.
8:21 And 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.
8:22 And after that went the Levites in to perform 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 to them.
8:23 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
8:24 This [is it] that [belongeth] to 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:
8:25 And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting
 upon the service [of it], and shall serve no more:
8:26 But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of
 the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no service.
 Thus shalt thou do to the Levites concerning their charge.
