Numbers 4:15–20

15 And when Aaron and his sons have finished covering the sanctuary and all the furnishings of the sanctuary, when the camp is set to go, then othe sons of Kohath shall come to carry them; pbut they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die.

q“These are the things in the tabernacle of meeting which the sons of Kohath are to carry.

16 “The appointed duty of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest is rthe oil for the light, the ssweet incense, tthe daily grain offering, the uanointing oil, the oversight of all the tabernacle, of all that is in it, with the sanctuary and its furnishings.”

17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: 18 “Do not cut off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites; 19 but do this in regard to them, that they may live and not die when they approach vthe most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in and 4appoint each of them to his service and his task. 20 wBut they shall not go in to watch while the holy things are being covered, lest they die.”
