Breacrumb: Don't touch that!

The Kohathites were in charge of carrying the various important furniture of the tabernacle. (Num. 4:1-20) However, they were not allowed to actually see any of this furniture. Instead, Aaron and his sons carefully prepared everything so that the Kohathites would only see the various cloth coverings of the instruments. If a Kohathite accidentally saw any of the furniture he was carrying, he would die. It gives a whole new meaning to "workplace hazards."
