5 "When the camp sets out, Aaron and his sons shall go in and they shall take down the veil of the screen and cover the ark of the testimony with it; 5 When the camp is to move, Aaron and his sons are to go in and take down the shielding curtain and cover the ark of the Testimony with it.
6 and they shall lay a covering of porpoise skin on it, and shall spread over it a cloth of pure blue, and shall insert its poles. 6 Then they are to cover this with hides of sea cows, spread a cloth of solid blue over that and put the poles in place.
7 "Over the table of the bread of the Presence they shall also spread a cloth of blue and put on it the dishes and the pans and the sacrificial bowls and the jars for the drink offering, and the continual bread shall be on it. 7 "Over the table of the Presence they are to spread a blue cloth and put on it the plates, dishes and bowls, and the jars for drink offerings; the bread that is continually there is to remain on it.

10 and they shall put it and all its utensils in a covering of porpoise skin, and shall put it on the carrying bars. 10 Then they are to wrap it and all its accessories in a covering of hides of sea cows and put it on a carrying frame.
11 "Over the golden altar they shall spread a blue cloth and cover it with a covering of porpoise skin, and shall insert its poles; 11 "Over the gold altar they are to spread a blue cloth and cover that with hides of sea cows and put its poles in place.
12 and they shall take all the utensils of service, with which they serve in the sanctuary, and put them in a blue cloth and cover them with a covering of porpoise skin, and put them on the carrying bars. 12 "They are to take all the articles used for ministering in the sanctuary, wrap them in a blue cloth, cover that with hides of sea cows and put them on a carrying frame.

15 "When Aaron and his sons have finished covering the holy objects and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is to set out, after that the sons of Kohath shall come to carry them, so that they will not touch the holy objects and die. These are the things in the tent of meeting which the sons of Kohath are to carry. 15 "After Aaron and his sons have finished covering the holy furnishings and all the holy articles, and when the camp is ready to move, the Kohathites are to come to do the carrying. But they must not touch the holy things or they will die. The Kohathites are to carry those things that are in the Tent of Meeting.
16 "The responsibility of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest is the oil for the light and the fragrant incense and the continual grain offering and the anointing oil -the responsibility of all the tabernacle and of all that is in it, with the sanctuary and its furnishings." 16 "Eleazar son of Aaron, the priest, is to have charge of the oil for the light, the fragrant incense, the regular grain offering and the anointing oil. He is to be in charge of the entire tabernacle and everything in it, including its holy furnishings and articles."
17 Then the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 17 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
18 "Do not let the tribe of the families of the Kohathites be cut off from among the Levites. 18 "See that the Kohathite tribal clans are not cut off from the Levites.
19 "But do this to them that they may live and not die when they approach the most holy objects: Aaron and his sons shall go in and assign each of them to his work and to his load; 19 So that they may live and not die when they come near the most holy things, do this for them: Aaron and his sons are to go into the sanctuary and assign to each man his work and what he is to carry.
20 but they shall not go in to see the holy objects even for a moment, or they will die." 20 But the Kohathites must not go in to look at the holy things, even for a moment, or they will die."
21 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 21 The LORD said to Moses,
22 "Take a census of the sons of Gershon also, by their fathers' households, by their families; 22 "Take a census also of the Gershonites by their families and clans.

The Gershonites are to do all that needs to be done with these things.
27 "All the service of the sons of the Gershonites, in all their loads and in all their work, shall be performed at the command of Aaron and his sons; and you shall assign to them as a duty all their loads. 27 All their service, whether carrying or doing other work, is to be done under the direction of Aaron and his sons.
