Numbers 8

GNT 1 The Lord said to Moses, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, GNT 2 "Tell Aaron that when he puts the seven lamps on the lampstand, he should place them so that the light shines toward the front." 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.’ ” GNT 3 Aaron obeyed and placed the lamps facing the front of the lampstand. NIV 3 Aaron did so; he set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand, just as the LORD commanded Moses. GNT 4 From top to bottom the lampstand was made of hammered gold, according to the pattern that the Lord had shown Moses. 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. GNT 5 The Lord said to Moses, NIV 5 The LORD said to Moses: GNT 6 "Separate the Levites from the rest of the people of Israel and purify them NIV 6 “Take the Levites from among all the Israelites and make them ceremonially clean. GNT 7 in the following way: sprinkle them with the water of purification and have them shave their whole bodies and have them wash their clothes. Then they will be ritually clean. 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. GNT 8 Then they are to take a young bull and the required grain offering of flour mixed with olive oil; and you are to take another bull for the 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. GNT 9 Then assemble the whole community of Israel and have the Levites stand in front of the Tent of my presence. NIV 9 Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community. GNT 10 The people of Israel are to place their hands on the heads of the Levites, NIV 10 You are to bring the Levites before the LORD, and the Israelites are to lay their hands on them. GNT 11 and then Aaron shall dedicate the Levites to me as a special gift from the Israelites, so that they may do my work. 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. GNT 12 The Levites shall then put their hands on the heads of the two bulls; one is to be offered as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, in order to perform the ritual of purification 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. GNT 13 "Dedicate the Levites as a special gift to me, and put Aaron and his sons in charge of them. NIV 13 Have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons and then present them as a wave offering to the LORD. GNT 14 Separate the Levites in this way from the rest of the Israelites, so that they will belong to me. NIV 14 In this way you are to set the Levites apart from the other Israelites, and the Levites will be mine. GNT 15 After you have purified and dedicated the Levites, they will be qualified to work in the Tent. 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. GNT 16 I have claimed them in the place of all the first-born sons of the Israelites, and they belong to me alone. 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. GNT 17 When I killed all the first-born in Egypt, I consecrated as my own the oldest son of each Israelite family and the first-born of every animal. 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. GNT 18 I am now taking the Levites instead of all the first-born of the Israelites, NIV 18 And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel. GNT 19 and I assign the Levites to Aaron and his sons, as a gift from the Israelites, to work in the Tent for the people of Israel and to protect the Israelites from the disaster that would strike them if they came too near the Holy Place." 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.” GNT 20 So Moses, Aaron, and all the people of Israel dedicated the Levites, as the Lord commanded Moses. NIV 20 Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. GNT 21 The Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes, and Aaron dedicated them as a special gift to the Lord. He also performed the ritual of purification for 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. GNT 22 The people did everything the Lord had commanded Moses concerning the Levites. And so the Levites were qualified to work in the Tent under Aaron and his sons. 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. GNT 23 The Lord said to Moses, NIV 23 The LORD said to Moses, GNT 24 "From the age of twenty-five each Levite shall perform his duties in the Tent of my presence, 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, GNT 25 and at the age of fifty he shall retire. NIV 25 but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer. GNT 26 After that, he may help his fellow Levites in performing their duties in the Tent, but he must not perform any service by himself. This is how you are to regulate the duties of the Levites." 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.”
