Provision For The Priesthood

5 So shall ye keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar, - that there no more be wrath against the sons of Israel. 6 I, therefore, lo! I have taken your brethren the Levites, out of the midst of the sons of Israel, - unto you, as a gift are they given, unto Yahweh, to do the laborious work of the tent of meeting. 7 But thou and thy sons with thee, shall keep the charge of your priesthood, as to every matter of the altar and as to the interior of the veil, and shall do the laborious work, as a laborious service of gifts, do I give your priesthood, and, the stranger who cometh near shall be put to death.
