1 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens :

2 Loquere Aaron, et dices ad eum : Cum posueris septem lucernas, candelabrum in australi parte erigatur. Hoc igitur præcipe ut lucernæ contra boream e regione respiciant ad mensam panum propositionis, contra eam partem, quam candelabrum respicit, lucere debebunt.

3 Fecitque Aaron, et imposuit lucernas super candelabrum, ut præceperat Dominus Moysi.

4 Hæc autem erat factura candelabri, ex auro ductili, tam medius stipes, quam cuncta quæ ex utroque calamorum latere nascebantur : juxta exemplum quod ostendit Dominus Moysi, ita operatus est candelabrum.

5 Et locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens :

6 Tolle Levitas de medio filiorum Israël, et purificabis eos

7 juxta hunc ritum : aspergantur aqua lustrationis, et radant omnes pilos carnis suæ. Cumque laverint vestimenta sua, et mundati fuerint,

8 tollent bovem de armentis, et libamentum ejus similam oleo conspersam : bovem autem alterum de armento tu accipies pro peccato :

9 et applicabis Levitas coram tabernaculo fœderis, convocata omni multitudine filiorum Israël.

10 Cumque Levitæ fuerint coram Domino, ponent filii Israël manus suas super eos.

11 Et offeret Aaron Levitas, munus in conspectu Domini a filiis Israël, ut serviant in ministerio ejus.

12 Levitæ quoque ponent manus suas super capita boum, e quibus unum facies pro peccato, et alterum in holocaustum Domini, ut depreceris pro eis.

13 Statuesque Levitas in conspectu Aaron et filiorum ejus, et consecrabis oblatos Domino,

14 ac separabis de medio filiorum Israël, ut sint mei.

15 Et postea ingredientur tabernaculum fœderis, ut serviant mihi. Sicque purificabis et consecrabis eos in oblationem Domini : quoniam dono donati sunt mihi a filiis Israël.

16 Pro primogenitis quæ aperiunt omnem vulvam in Israël, accepi eos.

17 Mea sunt enim omnia primogenita filiorum Israël, tam ex hominibus quam ex jumentis. Ex die quo percussi omne primogenitum in terra Ægypti, sanctificavi eos mihi :

18 et tuli Levitas pro cunctis primogenitis filiorum Israël,

19 tradidique eos dono Aaron et filiis ejus de medio populi, ut serviant mihi pro Israël in tabernaculo fœderis, et orent pro eis ne sit in populo plaga, si ausi fuerint accedere ad sanctuarium.

20 Feceruntque Moyses et Aaron et omnis multitudo filiorum Israël super Levitas quæ præceperat Dominus Moysi :

21 purificatique sunt, et laverunt vestimenta sua. Elevavitque eos Aaron in conspectu Domini, et oravit pro eis,

22 ut purificati ingrederentur ad officia sua in tabernaculum fœderis coram Aaron et filiis ejus. Sicut præceperat Dominus Moysi de Levitis, ita factum est.

23 Locutusque est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens :

24 Hæc est lex Levitarum : a viginti quinque annis et supra, ingredientur ut ministrent in tabernaculo fœderis.

25 Cumque quinquagesimum annum ætatis impleverint, servire cessabunt,

26 eruntque ministri fratrum suorum in tabernaculo fœderis, ut custodiant quæ sibi fuerunt commendata : opera autem ipsa non faciant. Sic dispones Levitis in custodiis suis.

Explanation of Numbers 8      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-4. On the derivation of the light in the spiritual heavens from the celestial heavens; and that this light is from Divine Truths brought into order from the Divine Love and Wisdom.

Verses 5-7. On the purification of those who are in, charity by means of truths from the Word, and by the separation of falsities and evils.

Verses 8-12. On worship, also, for this purpose, and also for conjunction with the Lord.

Verses 13-14. On the origin of charity and its distinction from faith.

Verses 15-19. On the great uses of charity; how by it man's life is rendered active from the Lord; how it is primary in the church, although faith appears to be so in the beginning; how it is subordinate to and is derived from celestial love; and how it prevents the destruction of remains.

Verses 20-22. Thus is charity purified and exalted in the church.

Verses 23-26. And those who are in charity must endure temptations, in order that they may be made perfect, and thus fully manifest their love of being useful.
