Numbers [ 8 : 16 ]
They are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to me. I have taken them as my own in place of the firstborn, the first male offspring from every Israelite woman


Numbers [ 8 : 17 ]
Every firstborn male in Israel, whether human or animal, is mine. When I struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, I set them apart for myself


Numbers [ 8 : 18 ]
And I have taken the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons in Israel


Numbers [ 8 : 19 ]
From among all the Israelites, I have given the Levites as gifts to Aaron and his sons to do the work at the tent of meeting on behalf of the Israelites and to make atonement for them so that no plague will strike the Israelites when they go near the sanctuary


Numbers [ 8 : 20 ]
Moses, Aaron and the whole Israelite community did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses


Numbers [ 8 : 21 ]
The Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes. Then Aaron presented them as a wave offering before the LORD and made atonement for them to purify them


Numbers [ 8 : 22 ]
After that, the Levites came to do their work at the tent of meeting under the supervision of Aaron and his sons. They did with the Levites just as the LORD commanded Moses


Numbers [ 8 : 23 ]
The LORD said to Moses


Numbers [ 8 : 24 ]
This applies to the Levites: Men twenty-five years old or more shall come to take part in the work at the tent of meeting


Numbers [ 8 : 25 ]
but at the age of fifty, they must retire from their regular service and work no longer


Numbers [ 8 : 26 ]
They may assist their brothers in performing their duties at the tent of meeting, but they themselves must not do the work. This, then, is how you are to assign the responsibilities of the Levites


Numbers [ 9 : 1 ]
The LORD spoke to Moses in the Desert of Sinai in the first month of the second year after they came out of Egypt. He said


Numbers [ 9 : 2 ]
Have the Israelites celebrate the Passover at the appointed time


Numbers [ 9 : 3 ]
Celebrate it at the appointed time, at twilight on the fourteenth day of this month, in accordance with all its rules and regulations


Numbers [ 9 : 4 ]
So Moses told the Israelites to celebrate the Passover


Numbers [ 9 : 5 ]
and they did so in the Desert of Sinai at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. The Israelites did everything just as the LORD commanded Moses


Numbers [ 9 : 6 ]
But some of them could not celebrate the Passover on that day because they were ceremonially unclean on account of a dead body. So they came to Moses and Aaron that same day


Numbers [ 9 : 7 ]
and said to Moses, "We have become unclean because of a dead body, but why should we be kept from presenting the LORD's offering with the other Israelites at the appointed time?"


Numbers [ 9 : 8 ]
Moses answered them, "Wait until I find out what the LORD commands concerning you"


Numbers [ 9 : 9 ]
Then the LORD said to Moses


Numbers [ 9 : 10 ]
Tell the Israelites: 'When any of you or your descendants are unclean because of a dead body or are away on a journey, they are still to celebrate the LORD's Passover


Numbers [ 9 : 11 ]
but they are to do it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs


Numbers [ 9 : 12 ]
They must not leave any of it till morning or break any of its bones. When they celebrate the Passover, they must follow all the regulations


Numbers [ 9 : 13 ]
But if anyone who is ceremonially clean and not on a journey fails to celebrate the Passover, they must be cut off from their people for not presenting the LORD's offering at the appointed time. They will bear the consequences of their sin


Numbers [ 9 : 14 ]
"'A foreigner residing among you is also to celebrate the LORD's Passover in accordance with its rules and regulations. You must have the same regulations for both the foreigner and the native-born'"


Numbers [ 9 : 15 ]
On the day the tabernacle, the tent of the covenant law, was set up, the cloud covered it. From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire


Numbers [ 9 : 16 ]
That is how it continued to be; the cloud covered it, and at night it looked like fire


Numbers [ 9 : 17 ]
Whenever the cloud lifted from above the tent, the Israelites set out; wherever the cloud settled, the Israelites encamped


Numbers [ 9 : 18 ]
At the LORD's command the Israelites set out, and at his command they encamped. As long as the cloud stayed over the tabernacle, they remained in camp


Numbers [ 9 : 19 ]
When the cloud remained over the tabernacle a long time, the Israelites obeyed the LORD's order and did not set out


Numbers [ 9 : 20 ]
Sometimes the cloud was over the tabernacle only a few days; at the LORD's command they would encamp, and then at his command they would set out


Numbers [ 9 : 21 ]
Sometimes the cloud stayed only from evening till morning, and when it lifted in the morning, they set out. Whether by day or by night, whenever the cloud lifted, they set out


Numbers [ 9 : 22 ]
Whether the cloud stayed over the tabernacle for two days or a month or a year, the Israelites would remain in camp and not set out; but when it lifted, they would set out


Numbers [ 9 : 23 ]
At the LORD's command they encamped, and at the LORD's command they set out. They obeyed the LORD's order, in accordance with his command through Moses


Numbers [ 10 : 1 ]
The LORD said to Moses


Numbers [ 10 : 2 ]
Make two trumpets of hammered silver, and use them for calling the community together and for having the camps set out


Numbers [ 10 : 3 ]
When both are sounded, the whole community is to assemble before you at the entrance to the tent of meeting


Numbers [ 10 : 4 ]
If only one is sounded, the leaders-the heads of the clans of Israel-are to assemble before you.


Numbers [ 10 : 5 ]
When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out


Numbers [ 10 : 6 ]
At the sounding of a second blast, the camps on the south are to set out. The blast will be the signal for setting out


Numbers [ 10 : 7 ]
To gather the assembly, blow the trumpets, but not with the signal for setting out


Numbers [ 10 : 8 ]
The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come


Numbers [ 10 : 9 ]
When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast on the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the LORD your God and rescued from your enemies


Numbers [ 10 : 10 ]
Also at your times of rejoicing your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God


Numbers [ 10 : 11 ]
On the twentieth day of the second month of the second year, the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle of the covenant law


Numbers [ 10 : 12 ]
Then the Israelites set out from the Desert of Sinai and traveled from place to place until the cloud came to rest in the Desert of Paran


Numbers [ 10 : 13 ]
They set out, this first time, at the LORD's command through Moses


Numbers [ 10 : 14 ]
The divisions of the camp of Judah went first, under their standard. Nahshon son of Amminadab was in command


Numbers [ 10 : 15 ]
Nethanel son of Zuar was over the division of the tribe of Issachar


Numbers [ 10 : 16 ]
and Eliab son of Helon was over the division of the tribe of Zebulun
