Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:3 - And Aaron did so: he set up its lamps in front of the lampstand, as the LORD commanded Moses.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:4 - And this was the workmanship of the lampstand, hammered work of gold. From its base to its flowers, it was hammered work; according to the pattern that the LORD had shown Moses, so he made the lampstand.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:5 - And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:6 - “Take the Levites from among the people of Israel and cleanse them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:7 - Thus you shall do to them to cleanse them: sprinkle the water of purification upon them, and let them go with a razor over all their body, and wash their clothes and cleanse themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:8 - Then let them take a bull from the herd and its grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil, and you shall take another bull from the herd for a sin offering.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:9 - And you shall bring the Levites before the tent of meeting and assemble the whole congregation of the people of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:11 - and Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the people of Israel, that they may do the service of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:12 - Then the Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and you shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering to the LORD to make atonement for the Levites.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:13 - And you shall set the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and shall offer them as a wave offering to the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:14 - “Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the people of Israel, and the Levites shall be mine.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:15 - And after that the Levites shall go in to serve at the tent of meeting, when you have cleansed them and offered them as a wave offering.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:16 - For they are wholly given to me from among the people of Israel. Instead of all who open the womb, the firstborn of all the people of Israel, I have taken them for myself.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:17 - For all the firstborn among the people of Israel are mine, both of man and of beast. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I consecrated them for myself,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:18 - and I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the people of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:19 - And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the people of Israel, to do the service for the people of Israel at the tent of meeting and to make atonement for the people of Israel, that there may be no plague among the people of Israel when the people of Israel come near the sanctuary.”

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:20 - Thus did Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the people of Israel to the Levites. According to all that the LORD commanded Moses concerning the Levites, the people of Israel did to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:21 - And the Levites purified themselves from sin and washed their clothes, and Aaron offered them as a wave offering before the LORD, and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:22 - And after that the Levites went in to do their service in the tent of meeting before Aaron and his sons; as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so they did to them.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:23 - And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:24 - “This applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they[fn] shall come to do duty in the service of the tent of meeting.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:25 - And from the age of fifty years they shall withdraw from the duty of the service and serve no more.

Unchecked Copy BoxNum 8:26 - They minister[fn] to their brothers in the tent of meeting by keeping guard, but they shall do no service. Thus shall you do to the Levites in assigning their duties.”
