1 Og Herren talte til Moses og sa:

2 Tal til Aron og si til ham: Når du setter lampene op, skal alle syv lamper kaste sitt lys rett frem for lysestaken.

3 Og Aron gjorde således; han satte lampene op så de kastet sitt lys rett frem for lysestaken, således som Herren hadde befalt Moses.

4 Lysestaken var gjort av gull i drevet arbeid; både foten og blomstene var drevet arbeid; efter det billede Herren hadde vist Moses, hadde han gjort Lysestaken.

5 Og Herren talte til Moses og sa:

6 Du skal ta levittene ut blandt Israels barn og rense dem!

7 Og således skal du gjøre med dem for å rense dem: Du skal sprenge renselses-vann på dem, og de skal la rakekniv gå over hele sitt legeme og tvette sine klær og således rense sig.

8 Så skal de ta en ung okse og matofferet som hører til, fint mel blandet med olje; og en annen ung okse skal du ta til syndoffer.

9 Og du skal la levittene komme frem foran sammenkomstens telt, og du skal samle hele Israels barns menighet.

10 Så skal du la levittene trede frem for Herrens åsyn, og Israels barn skal legge sine hender på levittene.

11 Og Aron skal innvie levittene for Herrens åsyn som et svinge-offer fra Israels barn, og deres arbeid skal være å utføre Herrens tjeneste.

12 Så skal levittene legge sine hender på oksenes hoder, og du skal ofre den ene til syndoffer og den andre til brennoffer for Herren for å gjøre soning for levittene.

13 Og du skal stille levittene frem for Aron og hans sønner, og du skal innvie dem som et svinge-offer for Herren.

14 Således skal du skille levittene ut blandt Israels barn, og levittene skal høre mig til.

15 Og derefter skal levittene komme og tjene ved sammenkomstens telt, når du har renset dem og innvidd dem.

16 For de er helt overgitt til mig som en gave fra Israels barn; istedenfor alt som åpner morsliv, alle førstefødte blandt Israels barn, har jeg tatt dem ut for mig.

17 For mig hører alt førstefødt til blandt Israels barn, både folk og fe; den dag jeg slo alt førstefødt i Egyptens land, helliget jeg dem for mig.

18 Men nu har jeg tatt levittene i stedet for alle førstefødte blandt Israels barn.

19 Jeg tok levittene ut blandt Israels barn og overgav dem helt til Aron og hans sønner, forat de skulde gjøre tjeneste ved sammenkomstens telt for Israels barn og gjøre soning for dem, så Israels barn ikke skal føre ulykke over sig ved å komme nær til helligdommen.

20 Og Moses og Aron og hele Israels barns menighet gjorde således med levittene; aldeles som Herren hadde befalt Moses om levittene, således gjorde Israels barn med dem.

21 Og levittene renset sig og tvettet sine klær, og Aron innvidde dem for Herrens åsyn og gjorde soning for dem, så de blev rene.

22 kom levittene og utførte sin tjeneste ved sammenkomstens telt under tilsyn av Aron og hans sønner; som Herren hadde befalt Moses om levittene, således gjorde de med dem.

23 Og Herren talte til Moses og sa:

24 Dette er loven som gjelder for levittene: Fra han er fem og tyve år gammel, skal han komme og gjøre tjeneste med å arbeide ved sammenkomstens telt.

25 Men fra han er femti år gammel, skal han trede tilbake fra arbeidstjenesten og ikke arbeide mere.

26 Dog skal han gå sine brødre til hånde i sammenkomstens telt og ta vare på det som er å vareta; men nogen arbeidstjeneste skal han ikke utføre. Således skal du lage det for levittene med det de har å vareta.

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.
