And (A)you and your sons with you shall guard your priesthood for all that concerns the altar and (B)that is within the veil; and you shall serve. I give your priesthood as a gift,[a] and (C)any outsider who comes near shall be put to death.”

Then the Lord spoke to Aaron, “Behold, (D)I have given you charge of the contributions made to me, all the consecrated things of the people of Israel. I have given them to you (E)as a portion and to your sons as a perpetual due. This shall be yours of the most holy things, reserved from the fire: every offering of theirs, every grain offering of theirs and every (F)sin offering of theirs and every (G)guilt offering of theirs, which they render to me, shall be most holy to you and to your sons.
