They shall perform the duties for [a]him and for the whole congregation before the tent of meeting, to do the (B)service of the tabernacle. They shall also keep all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, along with the duties of the sons of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle. You shall thus (C)give the Levites to Aaron and to his sons; they are wholly given to him from among the sons of Israel. 10 So you shall appoint Aaron and his sons that (D)they may keep their priesthood, but (E)the [b]layman who comes near shall be put to death.”
