Offerings for Priests and Levites

1 The priests, who are Levites1--indeed the whole tribe of Levi--are to have no allotment or inheritance with Israel. They shall live on the offerings2 made to the LORD by fire, for that is their inheritance.3 2 They shall have no inheritance among their brothers; the LORD is their inheritance,4 as he promised them.5 3 This is the share due the priests6 from the people who sacrifice a bull7 or a sheep: the shoulder, the jowls and the inner parts.8 4 You are to give them the firstfruits of your grain, new wine and oil, and the first wool from the shearing of your sheep,9 5 for the LORD your God has chosen them10 and their descendants out of all your tribes to stand and minister11 in the LORD's name always.12 6 If a Levite moves from one of your towns anywhere in Israel where he is living, and comes in all earnestness to the place the LORD will choose,13 7 he may minister in the name14 of the LORD his God like all his fellow Levites who serve there in the presence of the LORD. 8 He is to share equally in their benefits, even though he has received money from the sale of family possessions.15
