31
Their duties involved the ark, the table, the lampstand, the altars, the sanctuary utensils that were used with these, and the screen-- and all the work relating to them.

Numbers 4:3-32
3
men from 30 years old to 50 years old-- everyone who is qualified to do work at the tent of meeting.
4
"The service of the Kohathites at the tent of meeting concerns the most holy objects.
5
Whenever the camp is about to move on, Aaron and his sons are to go in, take down the screening veil, and cover the ark of the testimony with it.
6
They are to place over this a covering made of manatee skin, spread a solid blue cloth on top, and insert its poles.
7
"They are to spread a blue cloth over the table of the Presence and place the plates and cups on it, as well as the bowls and pitchers for the drink offering. The regular bread [offering] is to be on it.
8
They are to spread a scarlet cloth over them, cover them with a covering made of manatee skin, and insert the poles [in the table].
9
"They are to take a blue cloth and cover the lampstand used for light, with its lamps, snuffers, and firepans, as well as its jars of oil by which they service it.
10
Then they must place it with all its utensils inside a covering made of manatee skin and put [them] on the carrying frame.
11
"They are to spread a blue cloth over the gold altar, cover it with a covering made of manatee skin, and insert its poles.
12
They are to take all the serving utensils they use in the sanctuary, place [them] in a blue cloth, cover them with a covering made of manatee skin, and put [them] on a carrying frame.
13
"They are to remove the ashes from the [bronze] altar, spread a purple cloth over it,
14
and place all the equipment on it that they use in serving: the firepans, meatforks, shovels, and basins-- all the equipment of the altar. They are to spread a covering made of manatee skin over it and insert its poles.
15
"Aaron and his sons are to finish covering the holy objects and all their equipment whenever the camp is to move on. The Kohathites will come and carry them, but they are not to touch the holy objects or they will die. These are the transportation duties of the Kohathites regarding the tent of meeting.
16
"Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has oversight of the lamp oil, the fragrant incense, the daily grain offering, and the anointing oil. [He has] oversight of the entire tabernacle and everything in it, the holy objects and their utensils."
17
Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron:
18
"Do not allow the Kohathite tribal clans to be wiped out from the Levites.
19
Do this for them so that they may live and not die when they come near the most holy objects: Aaron and his sons are to go in and assign each man his task and transportation duty.
20
The Kohathites are not to go in and look at the holy objects, even for a moment, or they will die."
21
The LORD spoke to Moses:
22
"Take a census of the Gershonites also, by their ancestral houses and their clans.
23
Register men from 30 years old to 50 years old, everyone who is qualified to perform service, to do work at the tent of meeting.
24
This is the service of the Gershonite clans regarding work and transportation duties:
25
They are to transport the tabernacle curtains, the tent of meeting with its covering and the covering made of manatee skin on top of it, the screen for the entrance to the tent of meeting,
26
the hangings of the courtyard, the screen for the entrance at the gate of the courtyard that surrounds the tabernacle and the altar, along with their ropes and all the equipment for their service. They will carry out everything that needs to be done with these items.
27
"All the service of the Gershonites, all their transportation duties and all their [other] work, is to be [done] at the command of Aaron and his sons; you are to assign to them all that they are responsible to carry.
28
This is the service of the Gershonite clans at the tent of meeting, and their duties will be under the direction of Ithamar son of Aaron the priest.
29
"As for the Merarites, you are to register them by their clans and their ancestral houses.
30
Register men from 30 years old to 50 years old, everyone who is qualified to do the work of the tent of meeting.
31
This is what they are responsible to carry as the whole of their service at the tent of meeting: the supports of the tabernacle, with its crossbars, posts, and bases,
32
the posts of the surrounding courtyard with their bases, tent pegs, and ropes, including all their equipment and all the work related to them. You are to assign by name the items that they are responsible to carry.
1 Chronicles 23:1-32
1
When David was old and full of days, he installed his son Solomon as king over Israel.
2
Then he gathered all the leaders of Israel, the priests, and the Levites.
3
The Levites 30 years old and above were counted; the total number of men was 38,000 by headcount.
4
"Of these," [David said], "24,000 are to be in charge of the work on the LORD's temple, 6,000 are to be officers and judges,
5
4,000 are to be gatekeepers, and 4,000 are to praise the LORD with the instruments that I have made for worship."
6
Then David divided them into divisions according to Levi's sons: Gershom, Kohath, and Merari.
7
The Gershomites: Ladan and Shimei.
8
Ladan's sons: Jehiel was the first, then Zetham, and Joel-- three.
9
Shimei's sons: Shelomoth, Haziel, and Haran-- three. Those were the heads of the families of Ladan.
10
Shimei's sons: Jahath, Zizah, Jeush, and Beriah. Those were Shimei's sons-- four.
11
Jahath was the first and Zizah was the second; however, Jeush and Beriah did not have many sons, so they became an ancestral house [and received] a single assignment.
12
Kohath's sons: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel-- four.
13
Amram's sons: Aaron and Moses. Aaron, along with his descendants, was set apart forever to consecrate the most holy things, to burn incense in the presence of the LORD, to minister to Him, and to pronounce blessings in His name forever.
14
As for Moses the man of God, his sons were named among the tribe of Levi.
15
Moses' sons: Gershom and Eliezer.
16
Gershom's sons: Shebuel first.
17
Eliezer's sons were Rehabiah, first; Eliezer did not have any other sons, but Rehabiah's sons were very numerous.
18
Izhar's sons: Shelomith was first.
19
Hebron's sons: Jeriah was first, Amariah second, Jahaziel third, and Jekameam fourth.
20
Uzziel's sons: Micah was first, and Isshiah second.
21
Merari's sons: Mahli and Mushi. Mahli's sons: Eleazar and Kish.
22
Eleazar died having no sons, only daughters. Their cousins, the sons of Kish, married them.
23
Mushi's sons: Mahli, Eder, and Jeremoth-- three.
24
These were the sons of Levi by their ancestral houses-- the heads of families, according to their registration by name in the headcount-- 20 years old or more, who worked in the service of the LORD's temple.
25
For David said, "The LORD God of Israel has given rest to His people, and He has come to stay in Jerusalem forever.
26
Also, the Levites no longer need to carry the tabernacle or any of the equipment for its service"--
27
for according to the last words of David, the Levites 20 years old or more were to be counted--
28
"but their duty will be to assist the sons of Aaron with the service of the LORD's temple, being responsible for the courts and the chambers, the purification of all the holy things, and the work of the service of God's temple--
29
as well as the rows [of the bread of the Presence], the fine flour for the grain offering, the wafers of unleavened bread, the baking, the mixing, and all measurements of volume and length.
30
They are also to stand every morning to give thanks and praise to the LORD, and likewise in the evening.
31
Whenever burnt offerings are offered to the LORD on the Sabbaths, New Moons, and appointed festivals, they are to do so regularly in the LORD's presence according to the number prescribed for them.
32
They are to carry out their responsibilities to the tent of meeting, to the holy place, and to their relatives, the sons of Aaron, in the service of the LORD's temple."
1 Chronicles 25:1-26
1
David and the officers of the army also set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun, who were to prophesy accompanied by lyres, harps, and cymbals. This is the list of the men who performed their service:
2
From Asaph's sons: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asarelah, sons of Asaph, under Asaph's authority, who prophesied under the authority of the king.
3
From Jeduthun: Jeduthun's sons: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah-- six-- under the authority of their father Jeduthun, prophesying to the accompaniment of lyres, giving thanks and praise to the LORD.
4
From Heman: Heman's sons: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.
5
All these sons of Heman, the king's seer, were [given] by the promises of God to exalt him, for God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
6
All these men were under their own fathers' authority for the music in the LORD's temple, with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of God's temple. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the king's authority.
7
Together with their relatives who were all trained and skillful in music for the LORD, they numbered 288.
8
They cast lots impartially for their duties, the young and old alike, the teacher along with the pupil.
9
The first lot for Asaph fell to Joseph, [his sons, and his brothers-- 12] [to] Gedaliah the second: him, his brothers, and his sons-- 12
10
the third [to] Zaccur, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
11
the fourth to Izri, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
12
the fifth [to] Nethaniah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
13
the sixth [to] Bukkiah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
14
the seventh [to] Jesarelah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
15

16

17
the tenth [to] Shimei, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
18
the eleventh [to] Azarel, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
19

20
the thirteenth [to] Shubael, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
21
the fourteenth [to] Mattithiah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
22
the fifteenth to Jeremoth, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
23
the sixteenth to Hananiah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
24
the seventeenth to Joshbekashah, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
25
the eighteenth to Hanani, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
26
the nineteenth to Mallothi, his sons, and his brothers-- 12
