(Read Numbers 18 Part 1 First)

23 The Levites must serve at the Tabernacle, and they will be held responsible for any offenses against it. This is a permanent law among you. But the Levites will receive no inheritance of land among the Israelites,

24 because I have given them the Israelites' tithes, which have been set apart as offerings to the LORD. This will be the Levites' share. That is why I said they would receive no inheritance of land among the Israelites."

25 The LORD also told Moses,

26 "Say this to the Levites: `When you receive the tithes from the Israelites, give a tenth of the tithes you receive--a tithe of the tithe--to the LORD as a gift.

27 The LORD will consider this to be your harvest offering, as though it were the first grain from your own threshing floor or wine from your own winepress.

28 You must present one-tenth of the tithe received from the Israelites as a gift to the LORD. From this you must present the LORD's portion to Aaron the priest.

29 Be sure to set aside the best portions of the gifts given to you as your gifts to the LORD.'

30 "Also say to the Levites: `When you present the best part, it will be considered as though it came from your own threshing floor or winepress.

31 You Levites and your families may eat this food anywhere you wish, for it is your compensation for serving in the Tabernacle.

32 You will not be considered guilty for accepting the LORD's tithes if you give the best portion to the priests. But be careful not to treat the holy gifts of the people of Israel as though they were common. If you do, you will die.' "
