In this chapter orders are given for the lighting the seven lamps of
the candlestick, \\#Nu 8:1-4\\; and for the consecration of the Levites to
their office, by a purification of them, \\#Nu 8:5-8\\; by a separation of
them from the children of Israel, and the imposition of their hands on
them, and of the hands of the Levites on the offerings offered for
them, \\#Nu 8:9-15\\; and being thus given to the Lord, and claimed as his,
instead of the firstborn of Israel, they are given to Aaron and his
sons to do service in the tabernacle, \\#Nu 8:16-22\\; and their age at
which they were to enter into service and cease from it is fixed,
\\#Nu 8:23-26\\.
