17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: 17 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
18 You must not let the tribe of the clans of the Kohathites be destroyed from among the Levites. 18 "See that the Kohathite tribal clans are not cut off from the Levites.
19 This is how you must deal with them in order that they may live and not die when they come near to the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in and assign each to a particular task or 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.
