Numbers Chapter 4

21The Lord spoke to Moses saying:   כאוַיְדַבֵּ֥ר יְהוָֹ֖ה אֶל־משֶׁ֥ה לֵּאמֹֽר:
22Take a census of the sons of Gershon, of them too, following their fathers' houses, according to their families.   כבנָשׂ֗א אֶת־רֹ֛אשׁ בְּנֵ֥י גֵֽרְשׁ֖וֹן גַּם־הֵ֑ם לְבֵ֥ית אֲבֹתָ֖ם לְמִשְׁפְּחֹתָֽם:
Take a census of the sons of Gershon, of them too: As I commanded you with regards to the children of Kohath, to see how many there are who have reached the category of [those fit for] service.   את ראש בני גרשון גם הם: כמו שצויתיך על בני קהת לראות כמה יש שהגיעו לכלל עבודה:
23From the age of thirty years and upward, until the age of fifty years you shall count them, all who come to join the legion, to perform service in the Tent of Meeting.   כגמִבֶּן֩ שְׁלשִׁ֨ים שָׁנָ֜ה וָמַ֗עְלָה עַ֛ד בֶּן־חֲמִשִּׁ֥ים שָׁנָ֖ה תִּפְקֹ֣ד אוֹתָ֑ם כָּל־הַבָּא֨ לִצְבֹ֣א צָבָ֔א לַֽעֲבֹ֥ד עֲבֹדָ֖ה בְּאֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד:
24This is the service of the Gershonite families to serve and to carry.   כדזֹ֣את עֲבֹדַ֔ת מִשְׁפְּחֹ֖ת הַגֵּֽרְשֻׁנִּ֑י לַֽעֲבֹ֖ד וּלְמַשָּֽׂא:
25They shall carry the curtains of the Mishkan and the Tent of Meeting, its covering and the tachash skin covering overlaid upon it, and the screen for the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.   כהוְנָ֨שְׂא֜וּ אֶת־יְרִיעֹ֤ת הַמִּשְׁכָּן֙ וְאֶת־אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֔ד מִכְסֵ֕הוּ וּמִכְסֵ֛ה הַתַּ֥חַשׁ אֲשֶׁר־עָלָ֖יו מִלְמָ֑עְלָה וְאֶ֨ת־מָסַ֔ךְ פֶּ֖תַח אֹ֥הֶל מוֹעֵֽד:
the curtains of the Mishkan: The ten lower ones.   את יריעות המשכן: עשר תחתונות:
and the Tent of Meeting: The curtains of goat hair made as a tent over it.   ואת אהל מועד: יריעות עזים העשויות לאהל עליו:
its covering: The ram skins dyed red.   מכסהו: עורות אילים מאדמים:
the screen for the entrance: The screen on the east side.   מסך פתח: וילון המזרחי:
26The hangings of the courtyard, the screen at the entrance of the gate of the courtyard which is around the Mishkan and the altar, their ropes, all the work involved, and everything that is made for them, and thus shall they serve.   כווְאֵת֩ קַלְעֵ֨י הֶֽחָצֵ֜ר וְאֶת־מָסַ֣ךְ | פֶּ֣תַח | שַׁ֣עַר הֶֽחָצֵ֗ר אֲשֶׁ֨ר עַל־הַמִּשְׁכָּ֤ן וְעַל־הַמִּזְבֵּ֨חַ֙ סָבִ֔יב וְאֵת֨ מֵֽיתְרֵיהֶ֔ם וְאֶת־כָּל־כְּלֵ֖י עֲבֹֽדָתָ֑ם וְאֵ֨ת כָּל־אֲשֶׁ֧ר יֵֽעָשֶׂ֛ה לָהֶ֖ם וְעָבָֽדוּ:
which are around the Mishkan: That is to say, the hangings and the screen of the courtyard, which shelter and protect the Mishkan and the copper altar all around.   אשר על המשכן: כלומר הקלעים והמסך של חצר הסוככים ומגינים על המשכן ועל מזבח הנחשת סביב:
and everything that is made for them: As the Targum [understands it]: everything that is given over to them, that is, to the sons of Gershon.   ואת כל אשר יעשה להם: כתרגומו ית כל דיתמסר להון, לבני גרשון:
27All the service of the sons of Gershon shall be by the instruction of Aaron and his sons, regarding all their burden and all their service. You shall designate their entire burden as their charge.   כזעַל־פִּ֩י אַֽהֲרֹ֨ן וּבָנָ֜יו תִּֽהְיֶ֗ה כָּל־עֲבֹדַת֙ בְּנֵ֣י הַגֵּֽרְשֻׁנִּ֔י לְכָ֨ל־מַשָּׂאָ֔ם וּלְכֹ֖ל עֲבֹֽדָתָ֑ם וּפְקַדְתֶּ֤ם עֲלֵהֶם֙ בְּמִשְׁמֶ֔רֶת אֵ֖ת כָּל־מַשָּׂאָֽם:
by the instruction of Aaron and his sons: Which of the sons was appointed over them? [The answer is:] “under the supervision of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest” (verse 28).   על פי אהרן ובניו: ואיזה מהבנים ממונה עליהם, ביד איתמר בן אהרן הכהן:
28This is the service of the families of the sons of Gershon in the Tent of Meeting, and their charge, which was under the supervision of Ithamar, the son of Aaron the kohen.   כחזֹ֣את עֲבֹדַ֗ת מִשְׁפְּחֹ֛ת בְּנֵ֥י הַגֵּֽרְשֻׁנִּ֖י בְּאֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֑ד וּמִ֨שְׁמַרְתָּ֔ם בְּיַד֙ אִֽיתָמָ֔ר בֶּן־אַֽהֲרֹ֖ן הַכֹּהֵֽן:
