004:003:001
These also are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD spake with Moses in mount Sinai.


004:003:002
And these are the names of the sons of Aaron;
Nadab the firstborn,
and Abihu,
Eleazar,
and Ithamar.


004:003:003
These are the names of the sons of Aaron,
the priests which were anointed,
whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.


004:003:004
And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD,
when they offered strange fire before the LORD,
in the wilderness of Sinai,
and they had no children:
and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.


004:003:005
And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,


004:003:006
Bring the tribe of Levi near,
and present them before Aaron the priest,
that they may minister unto him.


004:003:007
And they shall keep his charge,
and the charge of the whole congregation before the tabernacle of the congregation,
to do the service of the tabernacle.


004:003:008
And they shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of the congregation,
and the charge of the children of Israel,
to do the service of the tabernacle.


004:003:009
And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons:
they are wholly given unto him out of the children of Israel.


004:003:010
And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons,
and they shall wait on their priest's office:
and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.


004:003:011
And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,


004:003:012
And I,
behold,
I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel:
therefore the Levites shall be mine;


004:003:013
Because all the firstborn are mine;
for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel,
both man and beast:
mine shall they be:
I am the LORD.


004:003:014
And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai,
saying,


004:003:015
Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers,
by their families:
every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.


004:003:016
And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD,
as he was commanded.


004:003:017
And these were the sons of Levi by their names;
Gershon,
and Kohath,
and Merari.


004:003:018
And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families;
Libni,
and Shimei.


004:003:019
And the sons of Kohath by their families;
Amram,
and Izehar,
Hebron,
and Uzziel.


004:003:020
And the sons of Merari by their families;
Mahli,
and Mushi.
These are the families of the Levites according to the house of their fathers.


004:003:021
Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites,
and the family of the Shimites:
these are the families of the Gershonites.


004:003:022
Those that were numbered of them,
according to the number of all the males,
from a month old and upward,
even those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred.


004:003:023
The families of the Gershonites shall pitch behind the tabernacle westward.


004:003:024
And the chief of the house of the father of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael.


004:003:025
And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of the congregation shall be the tabernacle,
and the tent,
the covering thereof,
and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,


004:003:026
And the hangings of the court,
and the curtain for the door of the court,
which is by the tabernacle,
and by the altar round about,
and the cords of it for all the service thereof.


004:003:027
And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites,
and the family of the Izeharites,
and the family of the Hebronites,
and the family of the Uzzielites:
these are the families of the Kohathites.


004:003:028
In the number of all the males,
from a month old and upward,
were eight thousand and six hundred,
keeping the charge of the sanctuary.

The families of the sons of Kohath shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle southward.


004:003:030
And the chief of the house of the father of the families of the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel.


004:003:031
And their charge shall be the ark,
and the table,
and the candlestick,
and the altars,
and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith they minister,
and the hanging,
and all the service thereof.


004:003:032
And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be chief over the chief of the Levites,
and have the oversight of them that keep the charge of the sanctuary.


004:003:033
Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites,
and the family of the Mushites:
these are the families of Merari.


004:003:034
And those that were numbered of them,
according to the number of all the males,
from a month old and upward,
were six thousand and two hundred.


004:003:035
And the chief of the house of the father of the families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail:
these shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward.


004:003:036
And under the custody and charge of the sons of Merari shall be the boards of the tabernacle,
and the bars thereof,
and the pillars thereof,
and the sockets thereof,
and all the vessels thereof,
and all that serveth thereto,


004:003:037
And the pillars of the court round about,
and their sockets,
and their pins,
and their cords.


004:003:038
But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east,
even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward,
shall be Moses,
and Aaron and his sons,
keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel;
and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.


004:003:039
All that were numbered of the Levites,
which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the LORD,
throughout their families,
all the males from a month old and upward,
were twenty and two thousand.


004:003:040
And the LORD said unto Moses,
Number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward,
and take the number of their names.


004:003:041
And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am the LORD)
instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel;
and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children of Israel.


004:003:042
And Moses numbered,
as the LORD commanded him,
all the firstborn among the children of Israel.


004:003:043
And all the firstborn males by the number of names,
from a month old and upward,
of those that were numbered of them,
were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.


004:003:044
And the LORD spake unto Moses,
saying,


004:003:045
Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel,
and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle;
and the Levites shall be mine:
I am the LORD.


004:003:046
And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the children of Israel,
which are more than the Levites;


004:003:047
Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll,
after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them:
(the shekel is twenty gerahs:)


004:003:048
And thou shalt give the money,
wherewith the odd number of them is to be redeemed,
unto Aaron and to his sons.


004:003:049
And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites:


004:003:050
Of the firstborn of the children of Israel took he the money;
a thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels,
after the shekel of the sanctuary:


004:003:051
And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons,
according to the word of the LORD,
as the LORD commanded Moses.
