Is it too small a thing for you that the God of Israel hath separated you from the assembly of Israel, to bring you near unto himself, - to do the laborious work of the habitation of Yahweh, and to stand before the assembly, to wait upon them? But having brought thee near, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee, must ye seek priesthood also? Wherefore thou and all thine assembly, are conspiring against Yahweh, - But Aaron, what is he, that ye should murmur against him?
