Numbers 18:1–7

And the Lord said unto Aaron, aThou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee shall bbear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood. And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be cjoined unto thee, and dminister unto thee: but ethou and thy sons with thee shall minister before the tabernacle of witness. And they shall keep thy charge, and fthe charge of all the tabernacle: gonly they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, hthat neither they, nor ye also, die. And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: iand a stranger shall not come nigh unto you. And ye shall kkeep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: lthat there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel. And I, behold, I have mtaken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: nto you they are given as a gift for the Lord, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. Therefore thou and thy sons with thee oshall keep your priest’s office for every thing of the altar, and pwithin the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest’s office unto you as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
