Numbers 1:49

Context
1:49 “Only the tribe of Levi 1  you must not number 2  or count 3  with 4  the other Israelites.

1 sn From the giving of the Law on the priesthood comes the prerogative of the tribe of Levi. There were, however, members of other tribes who served as priests from time to time (see Judg 17:5).

2 tn The construction has literally, “only the tribe of Levi you shall not number.” The Greek text rendered the particle אַךְ (’akh) forcefully with “see to it that” or “take care that.” For the uses of this form, see R. J. Williams, Hebrew Syntax, 65, §388-89.

3 tn Heb “lift up their head.”

4 tn Heb “in the midst of the sons of Israel.”
