ContextProvision for Priests and Levites
1The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the LORD made by fire, and his inheritance. 2Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brothers: the LORD is their inheritance, as he has said to them. 3And this shall be the priest's due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give to the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw. 4The first fruit also of your corn, of your wine, and of your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, shall you give him. 5For the LORD your God has chosen him out of all your tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever. 6And if a Levite come from any of your gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind to the place which the LORD shall choose; 7Then he shall minister in the name of the LORD his God, as all his brothers the Levites do, which stand there before the LORD. 8They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which comes of the sale of his patrimony.
