And thou shalt give the Levites to Aaron and to his sons: they are wholly given to him out of the children of Israel.

On the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, I hallowed unto me all the firstborn in Israel, both of man and beast; mine shall they be: I am Jehovah. And Jehovah spoke to Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, saying, Number the sons of Levi according to their fathers' houses, after their families; every male from a month old and upward shalt thou number them. And Moses numbered them, according to the commandment of Jehovah, as he had been commanded.

Is it too little for you, that the God of Israel has separated you from the assembly of Israel, to bring you near to himself to do the work of the tabernacle of Jehovah, and to stand before the assembly to minister to them?
