1 Chronicles 23:25 For David said,  The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people,  that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever: 

1 Chronicles 23:26 And also  unto the Levites; they shall no more carry the tabernacle,  nor any vessels of it for the service thereof. 

1 Chronicles 23:27 For by  the last words of David the Levites were numbered from  twenty years old and above: 

1 Chronicles 23:28 Because their office  was to wait on the sons of Aaron for the service of the  house of the LORD, in the courts, and in the chambers, and  in the purifying of all holy things, and the work of the  service of the house of God; 

1 Chronicles 23:29 Both for the  shewbread, and for the fine flour for meat offering, and for  the unleavened cakes, and for that which is baked in the  pan, and for that which is fried, and for all manner of  measure and size; 

1 Chronicles 23:30 And to stand every morning to  thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at even; 

1 Chronicles 23:31  And to offer all burnt sacrifices unto the LORD in the  sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by  number, according to the order commanded unto them,  continually before the LORD: 

1 Chronicles 23:32 And that they should  keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, and  the charge of the holy place, and the charge of the sons of  Aaron their brethren, in the service of the house of the  LORD.  KJV
