But thou, and thy sons with thee shall keep your Priest’s office for all things of the Altar, and within the veil: therefore shall ye serve: for I have made your Priest’s office [a]an office of service: therefore the stranger that cometh near shall be slain.

¶ Again the Lord spake unto Aaron, Behold, I have given thee the keeping of mine [b]offerings, of all the hallowed things of the children of Israel: unto thee have I given them for the anointing’s sake, and to thy sons for a perpetual ordinance.

This shall be thine of the most holy things, reserved from [c]the fire: all their offering of all their meat offering, and of all their sin offering, and of all their trespass offering, which they bring unto me, that shall be most holy unto thee, and to thy sons.
