Numbers 18:6-7

Context
18:6 I myself have chosen 1  your brothers the Levites from among the Israelites. They are given to you as a gift from the Lord, to perform the duties 2  of the tent of meeting. 18:7 But you and your sons with you are responsible for your priestly duties, for everything at the altar and within the curtain. And you must serve. I give you the priesthood as a gift for service; but the unauthorized person who approaches must be put to death.”

Numbers 18:29

Context
18:29 From all your gifts you must offer up every raised offering due 3  the Lord, from all the best of it, and the holiest part of it.’ 4 

1 tn Heb “taken.”

2 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.

3 tn The construction is “every raised offering of the Lord”; the genitive here is probably to be taken as a genitive of worth – the offering that is due the Lord.

4 tn Or “its hallowed thing.”
