|Numbers 18:19-24 |
19 All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer to the LORD, by a statute forever I have given to you, and to your sons and your daughters with you; it is a covenant of salt forever before the LORD to you and to your children with you."
20 And the LORD spoke to Aaron, "You shall have no inheritance in their land, neither shall you have any part among them. I am your part and your inheritance among the children of Israel.
21 And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
22 Neither must the children of Israel from this time forward come near the tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.
23 But the Levites shall do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they will bear their iniquity; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that among the children of Israel the Levites have no inheritance.
24 But the tithes of the children of Israel, which they offer as an heave offering to the LORD, I have given to the Levites to inherit; therefore I have said to them, 'Among the children of Israel they will have no inheritance.'"
