NIRV 1 The LORD said to Moses, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, NIRV 2 "Speak to Aaron. Say to him, 'Set up the seven lamps. They will give light to the area that is 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.’ ” NIRV 3 So Aaron did it. He set up the lamps so that they faced forward on the lampstand. He did just as the LORD had 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. NIRV 4 The lampstand was made out of hammered gold. From its base to its blooms it was made out of hammered gold. The lampstand was made exactly like the pattern 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.

NIV 6 “Take the Levites from among all the Israelites and make them ceremonially clean. NIRV 7 Here is how to make them pure. Sprinkle the special water on them. Then have them shave their whole bodies. Also have them wash their clothes. That is how they will make themselves pure. 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. NIRV 8 "Have them get a young bull along with its grain offering. The offering must be made out of fine flour mixed with olive oil. Then you must get a second young bull. You must sacrifice it as 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. NIRV 9 "Bring the Levites to the front of the Tent of Meeting. Gather the whole community of Israel together. NIV 9 Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community. NIRV 10 You must bring the Levites to me. The men of Israel must place their hands on them. NIV 10 You are to bring the Levites before the LORD, and the Israelites are to lay their hands on them. NIRV 11 Aaron must bring the Levites to me. They are a wave offering from the people of Israel. That is how they will be set apart to 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. NIRV 12 "I want the Levites to place their hands on the heads of the bulls. Then they must sacrifice one bull as a sin offering to me. And they must sacrifice the other as a burnt offering. The blood of the bulls will pay for the sin of 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. NIRV 13 "Have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons. Then give them as a wave offering to me. NIV 13 Have the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons and then present them as a wave offering to the LORD. NIRV 14 That is how I want you to set the Levites apart from the other men of Israel. The Levites 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. NIRV 15 "Make the Levites pure. Give them to me as a wave offering. Then they must come to do their work at the Tent of Meeting. 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. NIRV 16 They are the men of Israel who will be given to me completely. I have taken them to be my own. I have taken them in place of every son who is born first in his family in Israel. 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. NIRV 17 "Every male that is born first in Israel belongs to me. That is true whether it is a man or an animal. I struck down all of the males that were born first to a mother in Egypt. Then I set apart for myself all of the males that were born first in Israel. 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. NIRV 18 And I have taken the Levites in place of all of the sons who are born first in Israel. NIV 18 And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel. NIRV 19 "I have given the Levites as gifts to Aaron and his sons. I have taken them from all of the men of Israel. I have appointed them to do the work at the Tent of Meeting. They will do it in place of the men of Israel. "That is how they will keep the men of Israel from being guilty when they go near the sacred tent. Then no plague will strike the people of Israel when they go near the tent." 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.” NIRV 20 So Moses and Aaron and the whole community of Israel did with the Levites just as the LORD had commanded Moses. NIV 20 Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. NIRV 21 The Levites made themselves pure. They washed their clothes. Then Aaron gave them to the LORD as a wave offering. That's how he paid for their sin to make them pure. 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. NIRV 22 After that, the Levites came to do their work at the Tent of Meeting. They worked under the direction of Aaron and his sons. And so Moses and Aaron and the whole community of Israel did with the Levites just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 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. NIRV 23 The LORD spoke to Moses. He said, NIV 23 The LORD said to Moses, NIRV 24 "Here is what the Levites must do. Men who are 25 years old or more must come and take part in the work at 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, NIRV 25 "But when they reach the age of 50, they must not work any longer. They must stop doing their regular work. NIV 25 but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer. NIRV 26 They can help their brothers with their duties at the Tent of Meeting. But they themselves should not do the work. That is how you must direct the Levites to do their work." 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.”
