Duties of the Kohathites, Gershonites, and Merarites
4 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,2 “Take a census of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, by their clans and their fathers' houses,3 from thirty years old up to fifty years old, all who can come on duty, to do the work in the tent of meeting.4 This is the service of the sons of Kohath in the tent of meeting: the most holy things.5 When the camp is to set out, Aaron and his sons shall go in and take down the veil of the screen and cover the ark of the testimony with it.6 Then they shall put on it a covering of goatskin[a] and spread on top of that a cloth all of blue, and shall put in its poles.7 And over the table of the bread of the Presence they shall spread a cloth of blue and put on it the plates, the dishes for incense, the bowls, and the flagons for the drink offering; the regular showbread also shall be on it.8 Then they shall spread over them a cloth of scarlet and cover the same with a covering of goatskin, and shall put in its poles.9 And they shall take a cloth of blue and cover the lampstand for the light, with its lamps, its tongs, its trays, and all the vessels for oil with which it is supplied.10 And they shall put it with all its utensils in a covering of goatskin and put it on the carrying frame.
