Numbers 18:5-6

Context
18:5 You will be responsible for the care of the sanctuary and the care of the altar, so that there will be 1  no more wrath on the Israelites. 18:6 I myself have chosen 2  your brothers the Levites from among the Israelites. They are given to you as a gift from the Lord, to perform the duties 3  of the tent of meeting.

1 tn The clause is a purpose clause, and the imperfect tense a final imperfect.

2 tn Heb “taken.”

3 tn The infinitive construct in this sentence is from עָבַד (’avad), and so is the noun that serves as its object: to serve the service.
