Numbers 8

RHE 1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses, RHE 2 Speak to Aaron, and thou shalt say to him: When thou shalt place the seven lamps, let the candlestick be set up on the south side. Give orders therefore that the lamps look over against the north, towards the table of the loaves of proposition, over against that part shall they give light, towards which the candlestick looketh. 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.’ ” RHE 3 And Aaron did so, and he put the lamps upon the candlestick, 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. RHE 4 Now this was the work of the candlestick, it was of beaten gold, both the shaft in the middle, and all that came out of both sides of the branches: according to the pattern which the Lord had shewn to Moses, so he made the candlestick. 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. RHE 5 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: NIV 5 The LORD said to Moses: RHE 6 Take the Levites out of the midst of the children of Israel, and thou shalt purify them, NIV 6 “Take the Levites from among all the Israelites and make them ceremonially clean. RHE 7 According to this rite: Let them be sprinkled with the water of purification, and let them shave all the hairs of their flesh. And when they shall have washed their garments, and are cleansed, 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. RHE 8 They shall take an ox of the herd, and for the offering thereof fine flour tempered with oil: and thou shalt take another ox of 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. RHE 9 And thou shalt bring the Levites before the tabernacle of the covenant, calling together all the multitude of the children of Israel: NIV 9 Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting and assemble the whole Israelite community. RHE 10 And when the Levites are before the Lord, the children of Israel shall put their hands upon them: NIV 10 You are to bring the Levites before the LORD, and the Israelites are to lay their hands on them. RHE 11 And Aaron shall offer the Levites, as a gift in the sight of the Lord from the children of Israel, that they may serve in his ministry. 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. RHE 12 The Levites also shall put their hands upon the heads of the oxen, of which thou shalt sacrifice one for sin, and the other for a holocaust to the Lord, to pray for them. 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. RHE 13 And thou shalt set the Levites in the sight of Aaron and of his, and shalt consecrate them being offered 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. RHE 14 And shalt separate them from the midst of the children of Israel, to be mine. NIV 14 In this way you are to set the Levites apart from the other Israelites, and the Levites will be mine. RHE 15 And afterwards they shall enter into the tabernacle of the covenant, to serve me. And thus shalt thou purify and consecrate them for an oblation of the Lord: for as a gift they were given me by the children of Israel. 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. RHE 16 I have taken them instead of the firstborn that open every womb 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. RHE 17 For all the firstborn of the children of Israel, both of men and of beasts, are mine. From the day that I slew every firstborn in the land of Egypt, have 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. RHE 18 And I have taken the Levites for 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. RHE 19 And have delivered them for a gift to Aaron and his sons out of the midst of the people, to serve me for Israel in the tabernacle of the covenant, and to pray for them, lest there should be a plague among the people, if they should presume to approach unto my 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.” RHE 20 And Moses and Aaron and all the multitude of the children of Israel did with the Levites all that the Lord had commanded Moses NIV 20 Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses. RHE 21 And they were purified, and washed their garments. And Aaron lifted them up in the sight of the Lord, and prayed 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. RHE 22 That being purified they might go into the tabernacle of the covenant to do their services before Aaron and his sons. As the Lord had commanded Moses touching the Levites, so was it done. 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. RHE 23 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: NIV 23 The LORD said to Moses, RHE 24 This is the law of the Levites: From twenty-five years old and upwards, they shall go in to minister in the tabernacle of the covenant. 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, RHE 25 And when they shall have accomplished the fiftieth year of their age, they shall cease to serve: NIV 25 but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer. RHE 26 And they shall be the ministers of their brethren in the tabernacle of the covenant, to keep the things that are committed to their care, but not to do the works. Thus shalt thou order the Levites touching their charge. 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.”
