2 "Take a count of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, according to their families, by the house of their fathers, 2 "Take a census of the Kohathite branch of the Levites by their clans and families.
3 from thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all who enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation. 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 shall be the service of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation concerned with the most holy things. 4 "This is the work of the Kohathites in the Tent of Meeting: the care of the most holy things.
5 And when the camp moves forward, Aaron shall come and his sons, and they shall take down the covering veil and cover the ark of 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 shall put thereon the covering of badgers' skins, and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in the staves thereof. 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 And upon the table of showbread they shall spread a cloth of blue, and put thereon the dishes and the spoons and the bowls, and covers for covering; and the continual bread shall be thereon. 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 upon them a cloth of scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put in the staves thereof. 8 Over these they are to spread a scarlet cloth, cover that with hides of sea cows and put its poles in place.
9 And they shall take a cloth of blue and cover the candlestick of the light, and his lamps and his tongs and his snuff dishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it. 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 they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put it upon a carrying pole. 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 upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue and cover it with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put in the staves thereof. 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 instruments of ministry wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of blue and cover them with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put them on a carrying pole. 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 And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon; 13 "They are to remove the ashes from the bronze altar and spread a purple cloth over it.
14 and they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof wherewith they minister about it -- even the censers, the fleshhooks, and the shovels, and the basins, all the vessels of the altar -- and they shall spread upon it a covering of badgers' skins and put in the staves of it. 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 made an end of covering the sanctuary and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to move forward, after that the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it; but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation. 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 to the office of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, pertaineth the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the daily meat offering, and the anointing oil, and the oversight of all the tabernacle and of all that therein is in the sanctuary and in the vessels thereof." 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 unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying: 17 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
18 "Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites, 18 "See that the Kohathite tribal clans are not cut off from the Levites.
19 but thus do unto them, that they may live and not die when they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden; 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 when the holy things are covered, lest they 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 unto Moses, saying, 21 The LORD said to Moses,
