Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, and Aaron, saying: 1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron:
2 Take the sum of the sons of Caath from the midst of the Levites, by their houses and families. 2 "Take a census of the Kohathite branch of the Levites by their clans and families.
3 From thirty years old and upward, to fifty years old, of all that go in to stand and to minister in the tabernacle of the covenant. 3 Count all the men from thirty to fifty years of age who come to serve in the work in the Tent of Meeting.
4 This is the service of the sons of Caath: 4 "This is the work of the Kohathites in the Tent of Meeting: the care of the most holy things.
5 When the camp is; to set forward, Aaron and his sons shall go into the tabernacle of the covenant, and the holy of holies, and shall take down the veil that hangeth before the door, and shall wrap up the ark of the testimony in 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 shall cover it again with a cover of violet skins, and shall spread over it a cloth all of violet, and shall put in the bars. 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 They shall wrap up also the table of proposition in a cloth of violet, and shall put with it the censers and little mortars, the cups and bowls to pour out the libations: the loaves shall be always 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.
8 And they shall spread over it a cloth of scarlet, which again they shall cover with a covering of violet skins, and shall put in the bars. 8 Over these they are to spread a scarlet cloth, cover that with hides of sea cows and put its poles in place.
9 They shall take also a cloth of violet wherewith they shall cover the candlestick with the lamps and tongs thereof and the snuffers and all the oil vessels, which are necessary for the dressing of the lamps: 9 "They are to take a blue cloth and cover the lampstand that is for light, together with its lamps, its wick trimmers and trays, and all its jars for the oil used to supply it.
10 And over all they shall put a cover of violet skins and put in the 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 And they shall wrap up the golden altar also in a cloth of violet, and shall spread over it a cover of violet skins, and put in the bars. 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 All the vessels wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, they shall wrap up in a cloth of violet, and shall spread over it a cover of violet skins, and put in the 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.
13 They shall cleanse the altar also from the ashes, and shall wrap it up in a purple cloth, 13 "They are to remove the ashes from the bronze altar and spread a purple cloth over it.
14 And shall put it with all the vessels that they use in the ministry thereof, that is to say, firepans, fleshhooks and forks, pothooks and shovels. They shall cover all the vessels of the altar together with a covering of violet skins, and shall put in the bars. 14 Then they are to place on it all the utensils used for ministering at the altar, including the firepans, meat forks, shovels and sprinkling bowls. Over it they are to spread a covering of hides of sea cows and put its poles in place.
15 And when Aaron and his sons have wrapped up the sanctuary and the vessels thereof at the removing of the camp, then shall the sons of Caath enter in to carry the things wrapped up: and they shall not touch the vessels of the sanctuary, lest they die. These are the burdens of the sons of Caath: in the tabernacle of the covenant: 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 And over them shall be Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest, to whose charge pertaineth the oil to dress the lamps, and the sweet incense, and the sacrifice, that is always offered, and the oil of unction, and whatsoever pertaineth to the service of the tabernacle, and of all the vessels that are in the sanctuary. 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 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: 17 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
18 Destroy not the people of Caath from the midst of 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, by touching the holies of holies. Aaron and his sons shall go in, and they shall appoint every man his work, and shall divide the burdens that every man is to carry. 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 Let not others by any curiosity see the things that are in the sanctuary before they be wrapped up, otherwise they shall die. 20 But the Kohathites must not go in to look at the holy things, even for a moment, or they will die."
21 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 21 The LORD said to Moses,
22 Take the sum of the sons of Gerson also by their houses and families and kindreds. 22 "Take a census also of the Gershonites by their families and clans.
23 From thirty years old and upward, unto fifty years old. Number them all that go in and minister in the tabernacle of the covenant. 23 Count all the men from thirty to fifty years of age who come to serve in the work at the Tent of Meeting.
24 This is the office of the family of the Gersonites: 24 "This is the service of the Gershonite clans as they work and carry burdens:
25 To carry the curtains of the tabernacle and the roof of the covenant, the other covering, and the violet covering over all, and the hanging that hangeth in the entry of the tabernacle of the covenant, 25 They are to carry the curtains of the tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, its covering and the outer covering of hides of sea cows, the curtains for the entrance to the Tent of Meeting,
26 The curtains of the court, and the veil in the entry that is before tabernacle. All things that pertain to the altar, the cords and the vessels of the ministry, 26 the curtains of the courtyard surrounding the tabernacle and altar, the curtain for the entrance, the ropes and all the equipment used in its service. The Gershonites are to do all that needs to be done with these things.
27 The sons of Gerson shall carry, by the commandment of Aaron and his sons: and each man shall know to what burden he must be assigned. 27 All their service, whether carrying or doing other work, is to be done under the direction of Aaron and his sons. You shall assign to them as their responsibility all they are to carry.
28 This is the service of the family of the Gersonites in the tabernacle of the covenant, and they shall be under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 28 This is the service of the Gershonite clans at the Tent of Meeting. Their duties are to be under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest.
29 Thou shalt reckon up the sons of Merari also by the families and houses of their fathers, 29 "Count the Merarites by their clans and families.
30 From thirty years old and upward, unto fifty years old, all that go in to the office of their ministry, and to the service of the covenant of the testimony. 30 Count all the men from thirty to fifty years of age who come to serve in the work at the Tent of Meeting.
31 These are their burdens: They shall carry the boards of the tabernacle and the bars thereof, the pillars and their sockets, 31 This is their duty as they perform service at the Tent of Meeting: to carry the frames of the tabernacle, its crossbars, posts and bases,
32 The pillars also of the court round about, with their sockets and pins and cords. They shall receive by account all the vessels and furniture, and so shall carry them. 32 as well as the posts of the surrounding courtyard with their bases, tent pegs, ropes, all their equipment and everything related to their use. Assign to each man the specific things he is to carry.
33 This is the office of the family of the Merarites, and their ministry in the tabernacle of the covenant: and they shall be under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 33 This is the service of the Merarite clans as they work at the Tent of Meeting under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron, the priest."
34 So Moses and Aaron and the princes of the synagogue reckoned up the sons of Caath, by their kindreds and the houses of their fathers, 34 Moses, Aaron and the leaders of the community counted the Kohathites by their clans and families.
35 From thirty years old and upward, unto fifty years old, all that go in to the ministry of the tabernacle of the covenant: 35 All the men from thirty to fifty years of age who came to serve in the work in the Tent of Meeting,
36 And they were found two thousand seven hundred and fifty. 36 counted by clans, were %"2,750.
37 This is the number of the people of Caath that go in to the tabernacle of the covenant: these did Moses and Aaron number according to the word of the Lord by the hand of Moses. 37 This was the total of all those in the Kohathite clans who served in the Tent of Meeting. Moses and Aaron counted them according to the LORD's command through Moses.
38 The sons of Gerson also were numbered by the kindreds and houses of their fathers, 38 The Gershonites were counted by their clans and families.
39 From thirty years old and upward, unto fifty years old, all that go in to minister in the tabernacle of the covenant: 39 All the men from thirty to fifty years of age who came to serve in the work at the Tent of Meeting,
40 And they were found two thousand six hundred and thirty. 40 counted by their clans and families, were %"2,630.
41 This is the people of the Gersonites, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the word of the Lord. 41 This was the total of those in the Gershonite clans who served at the Tent of Meeting. Moses and Aaron counted them according to the LORD's command.
42 The sons of Merari also were numbered by the kindreds and houses of their fathers, 42 The Merarites were counted by their clans and families.
43 From thirty years old and upward, unto fifty years old, all that go in to fulfil the rites of the tabernacle of the covenant: 43 All the men from thirty to fifty years of age who came to serve in the work at the Tent of Meeting,
44 And they were found three thousand two hundred. 44 counted by their clans, were %"3,200.
45 This is the number of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron reckoned up according to the commandment of the Lord by the hand of Moses. 45 This was the total of those in the Merarite clans. Moses and Aaron counted them according to the LORD's command through Moses.
46 All that were reckoned up of the Levites, and whom Moses and Aaron and the princes of Israel took by name, by the kindreds and houses of their fathers, 46 So Moses, Aaron and the leaders of Israel counted all the Levites by their clans and families.
47 From thirty years old and upward, until fifty years old, that go into the ministry of the tabernacle, and to carry the burdens, 47 All the men from thirty to fifty years of age who came to do the work of serving and carrying the Tent of Meeting
48 Were in all eight thousand five hundred and eighty. 48 numbered %"8,580.
49 Moses reckoned them up according to the word of the Lord, every one according to their office and burdens, as the Lord had commanded him. 49 At the LORD's command through Moses, each was assigned his work and told what to carry. Thus they were counted, as the LORD commanded Moses.
