1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, and Aaron, saying: 2 Take the sum of the sons of Caath from the midst of the Levites, by their houses and families. 3 From thirty years old and upward, to fifty years old, of all that go in to stand and to minister in the tabernacle of the covenant. 4 This is the service of the sons of Caath: 5 When the camp is to set forward, Aaron and his sons shall go into the tabernacle of the covenant, and the holy of holies, and shall take down the veil that hangeth before the door, and shall wrap up the ark of the testimony in it,
6 And shall cover it again with a cover of violet skins, and shall spread over it a cloth all of violet, and shall put in the bars. 7 They shall wrap up also the table of proposition in a cloth of violet, and shall put with it the censers and little mortars, the cups and bowls to pour out the libations: the leaves shall be always on it: 8 And they shall spread over it a cloth of scarlet, which again they shall cover with a covering of violet skins, and shall put in the bars. 9 They shall take also a cloth of violet wherewith they shall cover the candlestick with the lamps and tongs thereof and the snuffers and all the oil vessels, which are necessary for the dressing of the lamps: 10 And over all they shall put a cover of violet skins and put in the bars.
