Numbers 8

ESV 1 Now the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, ESV 2 "Speak to Aaron and say to him, When you set up the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand." NIV 2 “Speak to Aaron and say to him, ‘When you set up the lamps, see that all seven light up the area in front of the lampstand.’ ” ESV 3 And Aaron did so: he set up its lamps in front of the lampstand, as the LORD commanded Moses. NIV 3 Aaron did so; he set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand, just as the LORD commanded Moses. ESV 4 And this was the workmanship of the lampstand, hammered work of gold. From its base to its flowers, it was hammered work; according to the pattern that the LORD had shown Moses, so he made the lampstand. NIV 4 This is how the lampstand was made: It was made of hammered gold—from its base to its blossoms. The lampstand was made exactly like the pattern the LORD had shown Moses. ESV 5 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, NIV 5 The LORD said to Moses: ESV 6 "Take the Levites from among the people of Israel and cleanse them. NIV 6 “Take the Levites from among all the Israelites and make them ceremonially clean. ESV 7 Thus you shall do to them to cleanse them: sprinkle the water of purification upon them, and let them go with a razor over all their body, and wash their clothes and cleanse themselves. NIV 7 To purify them, do this: Sprinkle the water of cleansing on them; then have them shave their whole bodies and wash their clothes. And so they will purify themselves. ESV 8 Then let them take a bull from the herd and its grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil, and you shall take another bull from the herd for a sin offering. NIV 8 Have them take a young bull with its grain offering of the finest flour mixed with olive oil; then you are to take a second young bull for a sin offering. ESV 9 And you shall bring the Levites before the tent of meeting and assemble the whole congregation of the people of Israel. NIV 9 Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community. ESV 10 When you bring the Levites before the LORD, the people of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites, NIV 10 You are to bring the Levites before the LORD, and the Israelites are to lay their hands on them. ESV 11 and Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the people of Israel, that they may do the service of the LORD. NIV 11 Aaron is to present the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the Israelites, so that they may be ready to do the work of the LORD. ESV 12 Then the Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and you shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering to the LORD to make atonement for the Levites. NIV 12 “Then the Levites are to lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, using one for a sin offering to the LORD and the other for a burnt offering, to make atonement for the Levites. ESV 13 And you shall set the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and shall offer them as a wave offering to the LORD. NIV 13 Have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons and then present them as a wave offering to the LORD. ESV 14 "Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the people of Israel, and the Levites shall be mine. NIV 14 In this way you are to set the Levites apart from the other Israelites, and the Levites will be mine. ESV 15 And after that the Levites shall go in to serve at the tent of meeting, when you have cleansed them and offered them as a wave offering. NIV 15 “After you have purified the Levites and presented them as a wave offering, they are to come to do their work at the tent of meeting. ESV 16 For they are wholly given to me from among the people of Israel. Instead of all who open the womb, the firstborn of all the people of Israel, I have taken them for myself. NIV 16 They are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to me. I have taken them as my own in place of the firstborn, the first male offspring from every Israelite woman. ESV 17 For all the firstborn among the people of Israel are mine, both of man and of beast. On the day that I struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I consecrated them for myself, NIV 17 Every firstborn male in Israel, whether human or animal, is mine. When I struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, I set them apart for myself. ESV 18 and I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the people of Israel. NIV 18 And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel. ESV 19 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the people of Israel, to do the service for the people of Israel at the tent of meeting and to make atonement for the people of Israel, that there may be no plague among the people of Israel when the people of Israel come near the sanctuary." NIV 19 From among all the Israelites, I have given the Levites as gifts to Aaron and his sons to do the work at the tent of meeting on behalf of the Israelites and to make atonement for them so that no plague will strike the Israelites when they go near the sanctuary.” ESV 20 Thus did Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the people of Israel to the Levites. According to all that the LORD commanded Moses concerning the Levites, the people of Israel did to them. NIV 20 Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. ESV 21 And the Levites purified themselves from sin and washed their clothes, and Aaron offered them as a wave offering before the LORD, and Aaron made atonement for them to cleanse them. NIV 21 The Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron presented them as a wave offering before the LORD and made atonement for them to purify them. ESV 22 And after that the Levites went in to do their service in the tent of meeting before Aaron and his sons; as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so they did to them. NIV 22 After that, the Levites came to do their work at the tent of meeting under the supervision of Aaron and his sons. They did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. ESV 23 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, NIV 23 The LORD said to Moses, ESV 24 "This applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall come to do duty in the service of the tent of meeting. NIV 24 “This applies to the Levites: Men twenty-five years old or more shall come to take part in the work at the tent of meeting, ESV 25 And from the age of fifty years they shall withdraw from the duty of the service and serve no more. NIV 25 but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer. ESV 26 They minister to their brothers in the tent of meeting by keeping guard, but they shall do no service. Thus shall you do to the Levites in assigning their duties." NIV 26 They may assist their brothers in performing their duties at the tent of meeting, but they themselves must not do the work. This, then, is how you are to assign the responsibilities of the Levites.”
