Levy

Levy

( 1 Kings 4:6 , RSV; 5:13 ), forced service. The service of tributaries was often thus exacted by kings. Solomon raised a "great levy" of 30,000 men, about two per cent. of the population, to work for him by courses on Lebanon. Adoram ( 12:18 ) presided over this forced labour service (Ger. Frohndienst; Fr. corvee).
