one And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, saying:
2 count the sons of Kaath among the sons of Levi according to their families, according to their families,
3 from thirty years old and up to fifty years old, all capable of service to send works to the tabernacle of the congregation.
4 This is the ministry of the sons of Kaath in the tabernacle of the congregation: [wear] the Holy of Holies.
5 When I need to get up on the road, Aaron and his sons will go in and remove the curtain that covers, and cover with it the ark of revelation;
6 And they will lay a cover of blue leather on it, and over it they will cover a blanket of blue, and put its poles;
7 and the table [of bread] of the proposal shall be covered with clothes of blue [wool], and they shall put on it dishes, plates, bowls and mugs for libation, and bread [his] forever shall be on it;
eight and they will lay scarlet clothing on them, and cover it with a cover of blue leather, and put its poles;
nine and they will take clothes of blue [wool], and they will cover a lamp and its lamps, and its tongs, and its trays, and all the vessels for oil that are used with it,
ten and they will cover him and all his belongings with a cover of blue leathers, and lay him on a stretcher;
eleven and on a golden altar they will lay clothes of blue [wool], and cover it with a cover of blue leathers, and put its poles.
12 And they will take all the official things that are used to serve in the sanctuary, and put them in clothes of blue [wool], and cover them with a cover of blue skins, and lay them on a stretcher.
thirteen And they will cleanse the altar from the ashes and cover it with purple clothing;
fourteen and they will lay on it all his vessels that are used for serving under him — angles, forks, shovels and bowls, all the vessels of the altar — and they will cover him with a cover of blue leather, and put his poles.
fifteen When, upon setting off the camp, Aaron and his sons will cover the entire sanctuary and all the things of the sanctuary, then the sons of Kaath will come to bear; but they should not touch the sanctuary, so as not to die. These [parts] of the tabernacle of the congregation must be worn by the sons of Kaath.

17 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, saying:
18 do not destroy the tribe of the tribes of the Kahites from among the Levites,
19 but this is what you do to them, so that they will be alive and not die when they approach the Holy of Holies: Aaron and his sons let them come and put each of them in his ministry and in his burden;
twenty but they themselves should not come to watch the shrine when they cover it, so as not to die.

22 and count the sons of Gershon according to their families, according to their families,

24 Here are the works of the Gershon families in their ministry and carrying weights:
25 they shall wear the covers of the tabernacle and the tabernacle of the congregation, and its cover, and the cover of leather blue that is on top of it, and the curtain of the entrance of the tabernacle of the congregation,
26 and the curtains of the courtyard, and the curtain of the entrance to the courtyard, which is around the tabernacle and the altar, and their ropes, and all things belonging to them; and everything that is done with them, they must work;
