The LORD said to Moses,
"You shall also make a 1basin of bronze, with its stand of bronze, for washing. 2You shall put it between the tent of meeting and the altar, and you shall put water in it,
with which Aaron and his sons 3shall wash their hands and their feet.
When they go into the tent of meeting, or when they come near the altar to minister, to burn a food offeringa to the LORD, they shall wash with water, so that they may not die.
They shall wash their hands and their feet, so that they may not die. It shall 4be a statute forever to them, even to him and to his offspring throughout their generations."
