From judges to kings, to Kohanim.
Moshe continued, “I’ve said it once, I’ve said it twice, I’ve said it time and time again… We are about to enter the holy Land of Israel… It’s HOLY! So, we must have holy people, doing holy jobs, around the clock!”
“Yes. The Kohanim from the Tribe of Levi will have the holiest of jobs. They serve now in the Mishkan and they will be the ones serving HaShem in the Beis HaMikdash!”
“Excellent. That’s exactly what I wanted to hear,” Moshe said happily. “But remember. These special people will have no portion in Eretz Yisrael like the rest of you. HaShem is their portion. So, it will be up to you to support them. They will receive shares from Korbonos, from Terumah… a grand total of 24 different kinds of gifts, and you will be the providers. Agreed?!”
“Yes, we will!”
“A Vadai Givis!”
