Deuteronomy 10:9

Context

Deuteronomy 12:12

Context
12:12 You shall rejoice in the presence of the Lord your God, along with your sons, daughters, male and female servants, and the Levites in your villages 3  (since they have no allotment or inheritance with you). 4 

1 sn Levi has no allotment or inheritance. As the priestly tribe, Levi would have no land allotment except for forty-eight towns set apart for their use (Num 35:1-8; Josh 21:1-42). But theirs was a far greater inheritance, for the Lord himself was their apportionment, that is, service to him would be their full-time and lifelong privilege (Num 18:20-24; Deut 18:2; Josh 13:33).

2 tn That is, among the other Israelite tribes.

3 tn Heb “within your gates” (so KJV, NASB); NAB “who belongs to your community.”

4 sn They have no allotment or inheritance with you. See note on the word “inheritance” in Deut 10:9.
