And thy brethrenalso of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bringthouwiththee, thatthey may be joineduntothee, and ministeruntothee: but thou and thy sonswiththeeshallministerbefore the tabernacle of witness.
Thereforethou and thy sonswiththeeshallkeepyourpriest’soffice for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shallserve: I havegivenyourpriest’sofficeunto you as a service of gift: and the strangerthatcomethnighshall be put to death.
And the LORDspakeuntoAaron, Behold, I alsohavegiventhee the charge of mineheaveofferings of all the hallowedthings of the children of Israel; untotheehave I giventhem by reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance for ever.
Thisshall be thine of the mostholythings, reservedfrom the fire: everyoblation of theirs, everymeatoffering of theirs and every sin offering of theirs, and everytrespassoffering of theirs, whichtheyshallrenderunto me, shall be mostholy for thee and for thy sons.
And this is thine; the heaveoffering of theirgift, with all the waveofferings of the children of Israel: I havegiventhemuntothee, and to thy sons and to thy daughterswiththee, by a statute for ever: every one that is clean in thy houseshall eat of it.
Everythingthatopeneth the matrix in all flesh, whichtheybringunto the LORD, whether it be of men or beasts, shall be thine: nevertheless the firstborn of man shaltthousurelyredeem, and the firstling of uncleanbeastsshaltthouredeem.
But the firstling of a cow, or the firstling of a sheep, or the firstling of a goat, thoushalt not redeem; they are holy: thoushaltsprinkletheirbloodupon the altar, and shaltburntheir fat for an offeringmade by fire, for a sweetsavourunto the LORD.
All the heaveofferings of the holythings, which the children of Israelofferunto the LORD, have I giventhee, and thy sons and thy daughterswiththee, by a statute for ever: it is a covenant of salt for everbefore the LORDuntothee and to thy seedwiththee.
But the Levitesshall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and theyshallbeartheiriniquity: it shall be a statute for everthroughoutyourgenerations, thatamong the children of Israeltheyhave no inheritance.
But the tithes of the children of Israel, whichtheyoffer as an heaveofferingunto the LORD, I havegiven to the Levites to inherit: therefore I havesaiduntothem, Among the children of Israeltheyshallhave no inheritance.
Thusspeakunto the Levites, and say untothem, When ye take of the children of Israel the titheswhich I havegiven you fromthem for yourinheritance, then ye shalloffer up an heaveoffering of it for the LORD, even a tenthpart of the tithe.
