NET © Notes

tn The verse begins with the perfect tense of עָבַד (’avad) with vav (ו) consecutive, making the form equal to the instructions preceding it. As its object the verb has the cognate accusative “service.”

sn The Levites have the care of the tent of meeting, and so they are responsible for any transgressions against it.

tn Heb “they”; the referent (the Levites) has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

tn The Hebrew text uses both the verb and the object from the same root to stress the point: They will not inherit an inheritance. The inheritance refers to land.
