3. From thirty years old and upward even to fifty years, all that enter into the service, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

4. This shall be the service of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation, the most holy place.

5. And when the camp sets forth, Aaron and his sons shall come, and they shall take down the covering veil and cover the ark of testimony with it.

6. And they shall put on it the covering of tanned leather skins, and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in its staves.

7. And they shall spread a cloth of blue upon the table of showbread, and put the dishes on it, and the spoons, and the bowls, and the cups of the drink offering, and covers to cover it with. And the continual bread shall be on it.

8. And they shall spread upon them a cloth of scarlet and cover it with a covering of tanned leather skins, and they shall put in its staves.

9. And they shall take a cloth of blue and cover the lampstand of the light, and its lamps, and its tongs, and its firepans, and all the oil vessels of it, with which they serve it.

15. And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, when the camp is to set forward, then after that the sons of Kohath shall come to carry it. But they shall not touch any holy thing lest they die. These are the burdens of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.

16. And to the office of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, belongs the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil, the oversight of all the tabernacle and of all that is in it in the sanctuary and in its vessels.”

17. And the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,

18. “Do not cut off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites.

19. But do this to them, and they shall live and not die when they approach the Holy of Holies. Aaron and his sons shall go in and appoint each one of them to his service and to his burden.

20. But they shall not go in to watch when the holy things are covered, lest they die.”

29. You shall number the sons of Merari according to their families, by the houses of their fathers.

30. You shall number them from thirty years old and upward even to fifty years old, everyone who enters into the service to do the work of the tabernacle of the congregation.

31. And this is the charge of their burdens, according to all their service in the tabernacle of the congregation: the boards of the tabernacle, and its bars, and its pillars, and its bases,

32. And the pillars of the court all around, and their bases, and their pegs and their cords, with all their vessels, and with all their service. And you shall count the vessels of the charge of their burdens by name.
