God spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying:
Vayedaber Adonay el-Moshe ve'el-Aharon lemor.
||Take a [special] census of the descendants of Kehoth among the Levites. [Take it] by families, following the paternal line.
Naso et-rosh bney Kehat mitoch bney Levi lemishpechotam leveyt avotam.
||[It shall include] those from 30 to 50 years old, all who enter service to work in the Communion Tent.
Miben shloshim shanah vamalah ve'ad ben-chamishim shanah kol-ba latsava la'asot melachah be'Ohel Mo'ed.
||The following is the service of Kehoth's descendants in the Communion Tent. It is the holy of holies.
Zot avodat beney-Kehat be'Ohel Mo'ed kodesh hakodashim.
