3 from thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all who enter into the service, to do the work in the Tent of Meeting. 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 Kohath in the Tent of Meeting, 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 When the camp moves forward, Aaron shall go in, and his sons, 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 shall put a covering of sealskin on it, and shall spread over it a cloth all of blue, and shall put in 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 On the table of show bread they shall spread a blue cloth, and put on it the dishes, the spoons, the bowls, and the cups with which to pour out; 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.

15 "When Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary, and all the furniture of the sanctuary, as the camp moves forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to carry it: but they shall not touch the sanctuary, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the Tent of Meeting. 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 charge of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be the oil for the light, the sweet incense, the continual meal offering, and the anointing oil, the charge of all the tabernacle, and of all that is in it, 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 Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 17 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
18 "Don't cut 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 to them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach to the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them everyone 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 the sanctuary even for a moment, 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."
