Moses went into the tabernacle of the testimony to speak to the Lord, he heard the voice of the Lord speaking to him, from above the propitiatory, which is over the ark of the testimony,

between the two cherubims, and he answered him, and the VIII. Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to Aaron, and thou 2 shalt say to him, When thou hast put on the side lamps, the

seven lamps shall give light in a range with the front of the 3 candlestick. And Aaron did so. On each side, on a range

with the front of the candlestick, he lighted the lamps thereof 4 as the Lord commanded Moses. Now the workmanship of

the candlestick was of solid gold; both its stem, and its lillies, were of one solid piece. He had made the candlestick accord

ing to the pattern which the Lord shewed Moses. 5 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Take the Le6 vites from among the children of Israel, and purify them. And 7 in this manner thou shalt perform their purification. Thou shalt

sprinkle them with the water of purification, and a razor shall

pass over their whole body, and they shall wash their clothes, 8 and they will be clean. Then they shall take a young bull from

the herd, with his sacrifice, to wit, fine flour mixed up with oil; ;

and thou shalt take a yearling bull from the herd for a sin of9 fering, and bring the Levites before the tabernacle of the testi. 10 mony, and assemble all the congregation of Israel's sons, and

present the Levites before the Lord. And the sons of Israel 11 shall lay their hands on the Levites; and Aaron shall set the

Levites apart before the Lord, as a gift from the sons of Israel;

and they shall be set apart to perform the works of the Lord. 12 Then the Levites shall lay their hands on the head of the

young bulls. And thou shalt offer the one for a sin offering,

and the other for a whole burnt offering, to make atonement 13 for them. Then thou shalt place the Levites before the Lord,

and before Aaron and before his sons, and give them as a gift 14 before the Lord. So thou shalt separate the Levites from

among the children of Israel, and they shall belong to me. 15 And after this, the Levites shall go in to do the works of the

tabernacle of the testimony, when thou hast purified them, and 16 given them up before the Lord. Because they are solemnly

given up to me from among the children of Israel; I have taken them for myself from among the children of Israel, in.

stead of all the males who are the first born of their mothers. 17 Because every first born among the children of Israel, whether 18 of man or beast, belongeth to me (on the day when I smote

all the first born in the land of Egypt, I hallowed them for

myself) and I have taken the Levites instead of all the first 19 born among the children of Israel, and have given the Levites

as a gift to Aaron and his sons, from among the children of Israel, to do the works of the children of Israel at the tabernacle of the testimony, and to make atonement for the children of Israel; therefore none among the children of Israel shall come

near the Holies. 20 So Moses and Aaron, and all the congregation of the chil

dren of Israel, did to the Levites as the Lord commanded Mo

ses in respect to them. 21 Now when the children of Israel had done so to them, and

the Levites were purified, and had washed their clothes, and

Aaron had solemnly given them up in the presence of the 22 Lord, and had made atonement for them to purify them;

and, after this, the Levites had gone in to perform their service in the tabernacle of the testimony, in the presence of Aaron and his sons—when they had done thus for the Levites, as the Lord

had commanded Moses in respect to them; then the Lord 23 spoke to Moses, saying, There is this further in respect to the 24 Levites—from twenty five years and upwards, they shall go in 25 to perform service at the tabernacle of the testimony; but af

ter fifty years of age, they are to be withdrawn from the ser26 vice, and work no more. As brothers, they are to keep watch

at the tabernacle of the testimony, but not to perform laborious work. In this manner thou shalt dispose of the Levites

among their watches. IX. Now in the second year after their coming out of the land of

Egypt, in the first month, the Lord spoke to Moses in the
