You are to perform these services. I'm giving you the priesthood as a gift of service, but any unauthorized person who approaches is to be put to death." 8 Then the LORD told Aaron, "Look! I am indeed placing you in charge of my raised offerings and the holy things concerning the Israelis. Because of your anointing, I'm giving you and your sons a prescribed portion forever.
