Numbers 7:4-9

4Then the  Lord said to Moses, 5Accept these from them, that they may be used in the service of the tent of meeting, and give them to the Levites, to each man according to his service.” 6So Moses took the wagons and the oxen and gave them to the Levites. 7Two wagons and four oxen ahe gave to the sons of Gershon, according to their service. 8And four wagons and eight oxen bhe gave to the sons of Merari, according to their service, under the direction of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 9But to the sons of Kohath he gave none, because they were charged with cthe service of the holy things that dhad to be carried on the shoulder.
