“For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the Name of the Lord, him, and his sonnes for euer.”
King James Version (KJV)
2. Therefore shall they haue no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said vnto them. 3. ¶ And this shalbe the Priests due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it bee oxe or sheepe: and they shall giue vnto the Priest the shoulder, and the two cheekes, and the maw. 4. The first fruit also of thy corne, of thy wine, and of thy oyle, and the first of the fleece of thy sheepe, shalt thou giue him. 5. For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the Name of the Lord, him, and his sonnes for euer. 6. ¶ And if a Leuite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he soiourned, and come with all the desire of his minde, vnto the place which the Lord shall choose; 7. Then hee shall minister in the Name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Leuites doe, which stand there before the Lord. 8. They shall haue like portions to eate, beside that which commeth of the sale of his patrimonie.
