Numbers - Chapter 3
2 These were the names of Aaron's sons: Nadab the eldest, then Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
4 Nadab and Abihu died in Yahweh's presence, in the desert of Sinai, when they offered unauthorised fire before Yahweh. They left no children and so it fell to Eleazar and Ithamar to exercise the priesthood under their father Aaron.
5 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
6 'Muster the tribe of Levi and put it at the disposal of the priest Aaron: they must be at his service.
7 They will undertake the duties incumbent on him and the whole community before the Tent of Meeting, in serving the Dwelling,
11 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
19 Kohath's sons by their clans: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel;
32 The chief of the Levite leaders was Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest. He supervised the people responsible for the sanctuary.
38 Finally, on the east side, in front of the Dwelling, in front of the Tent of Meeting, towards the east, was the camp of Moses and Aaron and his sons, who had charge of the sanctuary on behalf of the Israelites. Any unauthorised person coming near was to be put to death.
43 The total count, by name, of the first-born from the age of one month and over came to twenty-two thousand two hundred and seventy-three.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
