Numbers 8

NKJV 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, NKJV 2 "Speak to Aaron, and say to him, 'When you arrange 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.’ ” NKJV 3 And Aaron did so; he arranged the lamps to face toward the 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. NKJV 4 Now this workmanship of the lampstand was hammered gold; from its shaft to its flowers it was hammered work. According to the pattern which 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. NKJV 5 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: NIV 5 The LORD said to Moses: NKJV 6 "Take the Levites from among the children of Israel and cleanse them ceremonially. NIV 6 “Take the Levites from among all the Israelites and make them ceremonially clean. NKJV 7 Thus you shall do to them to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purification on them, and let them shave all their body, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves 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. NKJV 8 Then let them take a young bull with its grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil, and you shall take another young bull 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. NKJV 9 And you shall bring the Levites before the tabernacle of meeting, and you shall gather together the whole congregation of the children of Israel. NIV 9 Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community. NKJV 10 So you shall bring the Levites before the Lord, and the children 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. NKJV 11 and Aaron shall offer the Levites before the Lord, like a wave offering from the children of Israel, that they may perform the work 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. NKJV 12 Then the Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the young bulls, and you shall offer one as a sin offering and the other as 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. NKJV 13 And you shall stand the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and then offer them like 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. NKJV 14 Thus you shall separate the Levites from among the children 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. NKJV 15 After that the Levites shall go in to service the tabernacle of meeting. So you shall cleanse them and offer them, like 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. NKJV 16 For they are wholly given to Me from among the children of Israel; I have taken them for Myself instead of all who open the womb, the firstborn of all the children of 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. NKJV 17 For all the firstborn among the children of Israel are Mine, both man and beast; on the day that I struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I sanctified them to 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. NKJV 18 I have taken the Levites instead of all the firstborn of the children of Israel. NIV 18 And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel. NKJV 19 And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the work for the children of Israel in the tabernacle of meeting, and to make atonement for the children of Israel, that there be no plague among the children of Israel when the children 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.” NKJV 20 Thus Moses and Aaron and all the congregation of the children of Israel did to the Levites; according to all that the Lord commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so the children of Israel did to them. NIV 20 Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. NKJV 21 And the Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes; then Aaron presented them, like 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. NKJV 22 After that the Levites went in to do their work in the tabernacle of meeting before Aaron and his sons; as the Lord 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. NKJV 23 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, NIV 23 The LORD said to Moses, NKJV 24 "This is what pertains to the Levites: From twenty-five years old and above one may enter to perform service in the work of the tabernacle 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, NKJV 25 and at the age of fifty years they must cease performing this work, and shall work no more. NIV 25 but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer. NKJV 26 They may minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of meeting, to attend to needs, but they themselves shall do no work. Thus you shall do to the Levites regarding 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.”
