Numbers 3:6  (King James Version)
Bring the tribe of Levi near, and present them before Aaron the priest, that they may minister unto him.

The word {hakraiv,} here rendered bring near, is properly a sacrificial word, and signifies the presenting of a sacrifice or offering to the Lord. As an offering, the tribe of Levi was entirely given up to the service of the sanctuary, to be no longer their own, but the Lord's.
