„These were the sons of Levi according to their ancestral houses, the family heads as they were enrolled one by one according to their names. They performed the work of the service of the house of the LORD beginning at twenty years of age. 25David said: The LORD, the God of Israel, has given rest to his people, and has taken up his dwelling in Jerusalem forever. 26Henceforth the Levites need not carry the tabernacle or any of the equipment for its service. 27For by David’s last words the Levites were enlisted from the time they were twenty years old. 28Their duty is to assist the sons of Aaron in the service of the house of the LORD, having charge of the courts, the chambers, and the preservation of everything holy: they take part in the service of the house of God. 29They also have charge of the showbread, of the fine flour for the grain offering, of the wafers of unleavened bread, and of the baking and mixing, and of all measures of quantity and size. 30They are to be present every morning to offer thanks and to praise the LORD, and likewise in the evening; 31and at every sacrifice of burnt offerings to the LORD on sabbaths, new moons, and feast days, in such numbers as are prescribed, they must always be present before the LORD 32and observe what is prescribed for them concerning the tent of meeting, the sanctuary, and the sons of Aaron, their kinsmen, in the service of the house of the LORD”.
