Provision for Priests and Levites

1 "The Levitical priests, all the tribe of Levi, 1shall have no portion or inheritance with Israel. They 2shall eat the LORD's food offeringsa as theirb inheritance. 2 They shall have no inheritance among their brothers; the LORD is their inheritance, as he promised them. 3 And this shall be the priests' due from the people, from those offering a sacrifice, whether an ox or a sheep: 3they shall give to the priest the shoulder and the two cheeks and the stomach. 4 4The firstfruits of your grain, of your wine and of your oil, and the first fleece of your sheep, you shall give him. 5 For the LORD your God has chosen him out of all your tribes 5to stand and minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for all time. 6 "And if a Levite comes from any of your towns out of all Israel, 6where he lives--and he may come when he desiresc--7to the place that the LORD will choose, 7 and ministers in the name of the LORD his God, 8like all his fellow Levites who stand to minister there before the LORD, 8 then he may have equal 9portions to eat, besides what he receives from the sale of his patrimony.d
