Numbers 8:23 - 8:26

Retirement of the Levites

23 Now Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
24 “This is what applies to the Levites: from twenty-five years old and upward they shall enter to perform their duty in the service of the tent of meeting. 25 But at the age of fifty years they shall retire from their duty in the service and not serve anymore. 26 They may, however, minister to their brothers in the tent of meeting in order to keep up their responsibility, but they themselves shall perform no service. Thus you shall deal with the Levites concerning their responsibilities.”
