    Leviticus chapter 24.
    Moses, saying,

    [2] Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.

    [3] Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations.

    [4] He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the LORD continually.

    [5] And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.

    [6] And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD.

    [7] And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

    [8] Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.

    [9] And it shall be Aaron's and his sons'; and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.

    [10] And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;

    [11] And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)

    [12] And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them.

    [13] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [14] Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.

    [15] And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.

    [16] And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death.

    [17] And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.

    [18] And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast.

    [19] And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him;

    [20] Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.

    [21] And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death.

    [22] Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.

    [23] And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.

    Leviticus chapter 24 question. I wonder if there's any significance to Aaron being the tender of the light? In heaven that was the job of Lucifer. Aaron's sons profaned the altar. It's like God seems to be painting a picture here with Aaron? Leviticus-24-3.jpg

    Leviticus chapter 25
    mount Sinai, saying,

    [2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.

    [3] Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;

    [4] But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.

    [5] That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land.

    [6] And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee,

    [7] And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.

    [8] And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.

    [9] Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

    [10] And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

    [11] A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.

    [12] For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

    [13] In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.

    [14] And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:

    [15] According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:

    [16] According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.

    [17] Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.

    [18] Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.

    [19] And the land shall yield her fruit, and he shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.

    [20] And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:

    [21] Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.

    [22] And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.

    [23] The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.

    [24] And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

    [25] If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.

    [26] And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;

    [27] Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.

    [28] But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubile: and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.

    [29] And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it.

    [30] And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubile.

    [31] But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile.

    [32] Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

    [33] And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubile: for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel.

    [34] But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.

    [35] And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

    [36] Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.

    [37] Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

    [38] I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

    [39] And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee be waxen poor, and be sold unto thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bondservant:

    [40] But as an hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee, and shall serve thee unto the year of jubile:

    [41] And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return.

    [42] For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen.

    [43] Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.

    [44] Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the heathen that are round about you; of them shall ye buy bondmen and bondmaids.

    [45] Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.

    [46] And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigour.

    [47] And if a sojourner or stranger wax rich by thee, and thy brother that dwelleth by him wax poor, and sell himself unto the stranger or sojourner by thee, or to the stock of the stranger's family:

    [48] After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren may redeem him:

    [49] Either his uncle, or his uncle's son, may redeem him, or any that is nigh of kin unto him of his family may redeem him; or if he be able, he may redeem himself.

    [50] And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubile: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him.

    [51] If there be yet many years behind, according unto them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.

    [52] And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubile, then he shall count with him, and according unto his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption.

    [53] And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.

    [54] And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.

    [55] For unto me the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

    Leviticus chapter 26
    1] Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

    [2] Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD.

    [3] If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;

    [4] Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

    [5] And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.

    [6] And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.

    [7] And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword.

    [8] And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

    [9] For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and establish my covenant with you.

    [10] And ye shall eat old store, and bring forth the old because of the new.

    [11] And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you.

    [12] And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.

    [13] I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright.

    [14] But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;

    [15] And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

    [16] I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

    [17] And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

    [18] And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

    [19] And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:

    [20] And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

    [21] And if ye walk contrary unto me, and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.

    [22] I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your highways shall be desolate.

    [23] And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me;

    [24] Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

    [25] And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

    [26] And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.

    [27] And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me;

    [28] Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.

    [29] And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

    [30] And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.

    [31] And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.

    [32] And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it.

    [33] And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

    [34] Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.

    [35] As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it.

    [36] And upon them that are left alive of you I will send a faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies; and the sound of a shaken leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as fleeing from a sword; and they shall fall when none pursueth.

    [37] And they shall fall one upon another, as it were before a sword, when none pursueth: and ye shall have no power to stand before your enemies.

    [38] And ye shall perish among the heathen, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.

    [39] And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

    [40] If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

    [41] And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity:

    [42] Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.

    [43] The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity: because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.

    [44] And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them: for I am the LORD their God.

    [45] But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God: I am the LORD.

    [46] These are the statutes and judgments and laws, which the LORD made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.

    Moses, saying,

    [2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.

    [3] And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

    [4] And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.

    [5] And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

    [6] And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.

    [7] And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

    [8] But if he be poorer than thy estimation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to his ability that vowed shall the priest value him.

    [9] And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy.

    [10] He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy.

    [11] And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the priest:

    [12] And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be.

    [13] But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof unto thy estimation.

    [14] And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand.

    [15] And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be his.

    [16] And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part of a field of his possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof: an homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.

    [17] If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according to thy estimation it shall stand.

    [18] But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the priest shall reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain, even unto the year of the jubile, and it shall be abated from thy estimation.

    [19] And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him.

    [20] And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.

    [21] But the field, when it goeth out in the jubile, shall be holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest's.

    [22] And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;

    [23] Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give thine estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD.

    [24] In the year of the jubile the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did belong.

    [25] And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

    [26] Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the LORD's firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep: it is the LORD's.

    [27] And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.

    [28] Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.

    [29] None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.

    [30] And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD's: it is holy unto the LORD.

    [31] And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.

    [32] And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

    [33] He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

    [34] These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

    Numbers chapter 1
    1] And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,

    [2] Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls;

    [3] From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.

    [4] And with you there shall be a man of every tribe; every one head of the house of his fathers.

    [5] And these are the names of the men that shall stand with you: of the tribe of Reuben; Elizur the son of Shedeur.

    [6] Of Simeon; Shelumiel the son of Zurishaddai.

    [16] These were the renowned of the congregation, princes of the tribes of their fathers, heads of thousands in Israel.

    [17] And Moses and Aaron took these men which are expressed by their names:

    [18] And they assembled all the congregation together on the first day of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.

    [19] As the LORD commanded Moses, so he numbered them in the wilderness of Sinai.

    [20] And the children of Reuben, Israel's eldest son, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [21] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Reuben, were forty and six thousand and five hundred.

    [22] Of the children of Simeon, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, those that were numbered of them, according to the number of the names, by their polls, every male from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [23] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Simeon, were fifty and nine thousand and three hundred.

    [24] Of the children of Gad, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [25] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Gad, were forty and five thousand six hundred and fifty.

    [26] Of the children of Judah, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [27] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Judah, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.

    [28] Of the children of Issachar, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [29] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Issachar, were fifty and four thousand and four hundred.

    [30] Of the children of Zebulun, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [31] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Zebulun, were fifty and seven thousand and four hundred.

    [32] Of the children of Joseph, namely, of the children of Ephraim, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [33] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Ephraim, were forty thousand and five hundred.

    [34] Of the children of Manasseh, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [35] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Manasseh, were thirty and two thousand and two hundred.

    [36] Of the children of Benjamin, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [37] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Benjamin, were thirty and five thousand and four hundred.

    [38] Of the children of Dan, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [39] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Dan, were threescore and two thousand and seven hundred.

    [40] Of the children of Asher, by their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [41] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Asher, were forty and one thousand and five hundred.

    [42] Of the children of Naphtali, throughout their generations, after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war;

    [43] Those that were numbered of them, even of the tribe of Naphtali, were fifty and three thousand and four hundred.

    [44] These are those that were numbered, which Moses and Aaron numbered, and the princes of Israel, being twelve men: each one was for the house of his fathers.

    [45] So were all those that were numbered of the children of Israel, by the house of their fathers, from twenty years old and upward, all that were able to go forth to war in Israel;

    [46] Even all they that were numbered were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.

    [47] But the Levites after the tribe of their fathers were not numbered among them.

    [48] For the LORD had spoken unto Moses, saying,

    [49] Only thou shalt not number the tribe of Levi, neither take the sum of them among the children of Israel:

    [50] But thou shalt appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of testimony, and over all the vessels thereof, and over all things that belong to it: they shall bear the tabernacle, and all the vessels thereof; and they shall minister unto it, and shall encamp round about the tabernacle.

    [51] And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

    [52] And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.

    [53] But the Levites shall pitch round about the tabernacle of testimony, that there be no wrath upon the congregation of the children of Israel: and the Levites shall keep the charge of the tabernacle of testimony.

    [54] And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

    Numbers chapter 3
    [1] These also are the generations of Aaron and Moses in the day that the LORD spake with Moses in mount Sinai.

    [2] And these are the names of the sons of Aaron; Nadab the firstborn, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

    [3] These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests which were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest's office.

    [4] And Nadab and Abihu died before the LORD, when they offered strange fire before the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai, and they had no children: and Eleazar and Ithamar ministered in the priest's office in the sight of Aaron their father.

    [5] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [6] Bring the tribe of Levi near, and present them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him.

    [7] And they shall keep his charge, and the charge of the whole congregation before the tabernacle of the congregation, to do the service of the tabernacle.

    [8] And they shall keep all the instruments of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the charge of the children of Israel, to do the service of the tabernacle.

    [9] And thou shalt give the Levites unto Aaron and to his sons: they are wholly given unto him out of the children of Israel.

    [10] And thou shalt appoint Aaron and his sons, and they shall wait on their priest's office: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

    [11] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [12] And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;

    [13] Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am the LORD.

    [14] And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying,

    [15] Number the children of Levi after the house of their fathers, by their families: every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them.

    [16] And Moses numbered them according to the word of the LORD, as he was commanded.

    [17] And these were the sons of Levi by their names; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari.

    [18] And these are the names of the sons of Gershon by their families; Libni, and Shimei.

    [19] And the sons of Kohath by their families; Amram, and Izehar, Hebron, and Uzziel.

    [20] And the sons of Merari by their families; Mahli, and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to the house of their fathers.

    [21] Of Gershon was the family of the Libnites, and the family of the Shimites: these are the families of the Gershonites.

    [22] Those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, even those that were numbered of them were seven thousand and five hundred.

    [23] The families of the Gershonites shall pitch behind the tabernacle westward.

    [24] And the chief of the house of the father of the Gershonites shall be Eliasaph the son of Lael.

    [25] And the charge of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of the congregation shall be the tabernacle, and the tent, the covering thereof, and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

    [26] And the hangings of the court, and the curtain for the door of the court, which is by the tabernacle, and by the altar round about, and the cords of it for all the service thereof.

    [27] And of Kohath was the family of the Amramites, and the family of the Izeharites, and the family of the Hebronites, and the family of the Uzzielites: these are the families of the Kohathites.

    [28] In the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were eight thousand and six hundred, keeping the charge of the sanctuary.

    [29] The families of the sons of Kohath shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle southward.

    [30] And the chief of the house of the father of the families of the Kohathites shall be Elizaphan the son of Uzziel.

    [31] And their charge shall be the ark, and the table, and the candlestick, and the altars, and the vessels of the sanctuary wherewith they minister, and the hanging, and all the service thereof.

    [32] And Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest shall be chief over the chief of the Levites, and have the oversight of them that keep the charge of the sanctuary.

    [33] Of Merari was the family of the Mahlites, and the family of the Mushites: these are the families of Merari.

    [34] And those that were numbered of them, according to the number of all the males, from a month old and upward, were six thousand and two hundred.

    [35] And the chief of the house of the father of the families of Merari was Zuriel the son of Abihail: these shall pitch on the side of the tabernacle northward.

    [36] And under the custody and charge of the sons of Merari shall be the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and the sockets thereof, and all the vessels thereof, and all that serveth thereto,

    [37] And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords.

    [38] But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

    [39] All that were numbered of the Levites, which Moses and Aaron numbered at the commandment of the LORD, throughout their families, all the males from a month old and upward, were twenty and two thousand.

    [40] And the LORD said unto Moses, Number all the firstborn of the males of the children of Israel from a month old and upward, and take the number of their names.

    [41] And thou shalt take the Levites for me (I am the LORD) instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel; and the cattle of the Levites instead of all the firstlings among the cattle of the children of Israel.

    [42] And Moses numbered, as the LORD commanded him, all the firstborn among the children of Israel.

    [43] And all the firstborn males by the number of names, from a month old and upward, of those that were numbered of them, were twenty and two thousand two hundred and threescore and thirteen.

    [44] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [45] Take the Levites instead of all the firstborn among the children of Israel, and the cattle of the Levites instead of their cattle; and the Levites shall be mine: I am the LORD.

    [46] And for those that are to be redeemed of the two hundred and threescore and thirteen of the firstborn of the children of Israel, which are more than the Levites;

    [47] Thou shalt even take five shekels apiece by the poll, after the shekel of the sanctuary shalt thou take them: (the shekel is twenty gerahs:)

    [48] And thou shalt give the money, wherewith the odd number of them is to be redeemed, unto Aaron and to his sons.

    [49] And Moses took the redemption money of them that were over and above them that were redeemed by the Levites:

    [50] Of the firstborn of the children of Israel took he the money; a thousand three hundred and threescore and five shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:

    [51] And Moses gave the money of them that were redeemed unto Aaron and to his sons, according to the word of the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses.

In the Old testament if a man had a brother and his brother died the surviving brother was supposed to impregnate his wife if the man had no children now in Numbers chapter 3 we read a conflicting order or seemingly conflicting order!

    Numbers chapter 4
    [1] And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

    [2] Take the sum of the sons of Kohath from among the sons of Levi, after their families, by the house of their fathers,

    [3] From thirty years old and upward even until fifty years old, all that enter into the host, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

    [4] This shall be the service of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation, about the most holy things:

    [5] And when the camp setteth forward, Aaron shall come, and his sons, and they shall take down the covering vail, and cover the ark of testimony with it:

    [6] And shall put thereon the covering of badgers' skins, and shall spread over it a cloth wholly of blue, and shall put in the staves thereof.

    [7] And upon the table of shewbread they shall spread a cloth of blue, and put thereon the dishes, and the spoons, and the bowls, and covers to cover withal: and the continual bread shall be thereon:

    [8] And they shall spread upon them a cloth of scarlet, and cover the same with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put in the staves thereof.

    [9] And they shall take a cloth of blue, and cover the candlestick of the light, and his lamps, and his tongs, and his snuffdishes, and all the oil vessels thereof, wherewith they minister unto it:

    [10] And they shall put it and all the vessels thereof within a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put it upon a bar.

    [11] And upon the golden altar they shall spread a cloth of blue, and cover it with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put to the staves thereof:

    [12] And they shall take all the instruments of ministry, wherewith they minister in the sanctuary, and put them in a cloth of blue, and cover them with a covering of badgers' skins, and shall put them on a bar:

    [13] And they shall take away the ashes from the altar, and spread a purple cloth thereon:

    [14] And they shall put upon it all the vessels thereof, wherewith they minister about it, even the censers, the fleshhooks, and the shovels, and the basons, all the vessels of the altar; and they shall spread upon it a covering of badgers' skins, and put to the staves of it.

    [15] And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.

    [16] And to the office of Eleazar the son of Aaron the priest pertaineth the oil for the light, and the sweet incense, and the daily meat offering, and the anointing oil, and the oversight of all the tabernacle, and of all that therein is, in the sanctuary, and in the vessels thereof.

    [17] And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

    [18] Cut ye not off the tribe of the families of the Kohathites from among the Levites:

    [19] But thus do unto them, that they may live, and not die, when they approach unto the most holy things: Aaron and his sons shall go in, and appoint them every one to his service and to his burden:

    [20] But they shall not go in to see when the holy things are covered, lest they die.

    [21] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [22] Take also the sum of the sons of Gershon, throughout the houses of their fathers, by their families;

    [23] From thirty years old and upward until fifty years old shalt thou number them; all that enter in to perform the service, to do the work in the tabernacle of the congregation.

    [24] This is the service of the families of the Gershonites, to serve, and for burdens:

    [25] And they shall bear the curtains of the tabernacle, and the tabernacle of the congregation, his covering, and the covering of the badgers' skins that is above upon it, and the hanging for the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,

    [26] And the hangings of the court, and the hanging for the door of the gate of the court, which is by the tabernacle and by the altar round about, and their cords, and all the instruments of their service, and all that is made for them: so shall they serve.

    [27] At the appointment of Aaron and his sons shall be all the service of the sons of the Gershonites, in all their burdens, and in all their service: and ye shall appoint unto them in charge all their burdens.

    [28] This is the service of the families of the sons of Gershon in the tabernacle of the congregation: and their charge shall be under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

    [29] As for the sons of Merari, thou shalt number them after their families, by the house of their fathers;

    [30] From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old shalt thou number them, every one that entereth into the service, to do the work of the tabernacle of the congregation.

    [31] And this is the charge of their burden, according to all their service in the tabernacle of the congregation; the boards of the tabernacle, and the bars thereof, and the pillars thereof, and sockets thereof,

    [32] And the pillars of the court round about, and their sockets, and their pins, and their cords, with all their instruments, and with all their service: and by name ye shall reckon the instruments of the charge of their burden.

    [33] This is the service of the families of the sons of Merari, according to all their service, in the tabernacle of the congregation, under the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest.

    [34] And Moses and Aaron and the chief of the congregation numbered the sons of the Kohathites after their families, and after the house of their fathers,

    [35] From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation:

    [36] And those that were numbered of them by their families were two thousand seven hundred and fifty.

    [37] These were they that were numbered of the families of the Kohathites, all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, which Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

    [38] And those that were numbered of the sons of Gershon, throughout their families, and by the house of their fathers,

    [39] From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation,

    [40] Even those that were numbered of them, throughout their families, by the house of their fathers, were two thousand and six hundred and thirty.

    [41] These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons of Gershon, of all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, whom Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment of the LORD.

    [42] And those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, throughout their families, by the house of their fathers,

    [43] From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that entereth into the service, for the work in the tabernacle of the congregation,

    [44] Even those that were numbered of them after their families, were three thousand and two hundred.

    [45] These be those that were numbered of the families of the sons of Merari, whom Moses and Aaron numbered according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

    [46] All those that were numbered of the Levites, whom Moses and Aaron and the chief of Israel numbered, after their families, and after the house of their fathers,

    [47] From thirty years old and upward even unto fifty years old, every one that came to do the service of the ministry, and the service of the burden in the tabernacle of the congregation,

    [48] Even those that were numbered of them, were eight thousand and five hundred and fourscore.

    [49] According to the commandment of the LORD they were numbered by the hand of Moses, every one according to his service, and according to his burden: thus were they numbered of him, as the LORD commanded Moses.

    Let me try to answer the seeming contradiction of the scriptures about “taking a brother’s wife.”
    You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife; it is your brother’s nakedness.” ( Lev 18:16 )
    If a man takes his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing. He has uncovered his brother’s nakedness. They shall be childless. ( Lev 20:21 )

    These two scriptures deal with a brother who is living at the time. So the sexual act is illegal. The other scriptures deal with a brother who has died without having a son with his wife. It is the requirement for a brother to marry his brother’s wife to conceive a son, to carry on his brother’s name.

    But if the man does not want to take his brother’s wife, then let his brother’s wife go up to the gate to the elders, and say, ‘My husband’s brother refuses to raise up a name to his brother in Israel; he will not perform the duty of my husband’s brother.” ( Dt 25:7 NKJV )

    “. . . then his brother’s wife shall come to him in the presence of the elders, remove his sandal from his foot, spit in his face, and answer and say, ‘So shall it be done to the man who will not build up his brother’s house.” ( Dt 25:9 NKJV )

    The following scripture gives the true answer to the question of a brother having a son with his brother’s wife.
    Teacher, Moses said that if a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring for his brother. Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother. Likewise the second also, and the third, even to the seventh.” ( Mt 22:24-26 NKJV )

    Numbers chapter 5
    [1] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [2] Command the children of Israel, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead:

    [3] Both male and female shall ye put out, without the camp shall ye put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell.

    [4] And the children of Israel did so, and put them out without the camp: as the LORD spake unto Moses, so did the children of Israel.

    [5] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [6] Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against the LORD, and that person be guilty;

    [7] Then they shall confess their sin which they have done: and he shall recompense his trespass with the principal thereof, and add unto it the fifth part thereof, and give it unto him against whom he hath trespassed.

    [8] But if the man have no kinsman to recompense the trespass unto, let the trespass be recompensed unto the LORD, even to the priest; beside the ram of the atonement, whereby an atonement shall be made for him.

    [9] And every offering of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring unto the priest, shall be his.

    [10] And every man's hallowed things shall be his: whatsoever any man giveth the priest, it shall be his.

    [11] And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

    [12] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

    [13] And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;

    [14] And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

    [15] Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

    [16] And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD:

    [17] And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water:

    [18] And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse:

    [19] And the priest shall charge her by an oath, and say unto the woman, If no man have lain with thee, and if thou hast not gone aside to uncleanness with another instead of thy husband, be thou free from this bitter water that causeth the curse:

    [20] But if thou hast gone aside to another instead of thy husband, and if thou be defiled, and some man have lain with thee beside thine husband:

    [21] Then the priest shall charge the woman with an oath of cursing, and the priest shall say unto the woman, The LORD make thee a curse and an oath among thy people, when the LORD doth make thy thigh to rot, and thy belly to swell;

    [22] And this water that causeth the curse shall go into thy bowels, to make thy belly to swell, and thy thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, Amen, amen.

    [23] And the priest shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot them out with the bitter water:

    [24] And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causeth the curse: and the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter.

    [25] Then the priest shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before the LORD, and offer it upon the altar:

    [26] And the priest shall take an handful of the offering, even the memorial thereof, and burn it upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water.

    [27] And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

    [28] And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.

    [29] This is the law of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside to another instead of her husband, and is defiled;

    [30] Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.

    [31] Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.
