7:4 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 7:5 “Receive these gifts7 from them, that they may be8 used in doing the work9 of the tent of meeting; and you must give them to the Levites, to every man10 as his service requires.”11
7:6 So Moses accepted the carts and the oxen and gave them to the Levites. 7:7 He gave two carts and four oxen to the Gershonites, as their service required; 7:8 and he gave four carts and eight oxen to the Merarites, as their service required, under the authority12 of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest. 7:9 But to the Kohathites he gave none, because the service of the holy things, which they carried13 on their shoulders, was their responsibility.14
