1 And Jehovah said to Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary; and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.

2 And thy brothers also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, come·​·near with thee, that they may be joined to thee, and minister to thee; but thou and thy sons with thee shall minister before the Tabernacle of the testimony.

3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the Tabernacle; only they shall not come·​·near to the vessels of the sanctuary or to the altar, and they shall not die, both they, and you.

4 And they shall be joined to thee, and keep the charge of the Tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the Tabernacle; and a stranger shall not come·​·near to you.

5 And you shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar, that there be no rage any·​·more upon the sons of Israel.

6 And I, behold, I have taken your brothers the Levites from among the sons of Israel; to you they are given as a gift for Jehovah, to serve the service of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

7 And thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priesthood for every thing of the altar, and for that inside the veil; and you shall serve; I have given you the priesthood as a gift of service; and the stranger who draws·​·near shall be put·​·to·​·death.

8 And Jehovah spoke to Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee the charge of My upliftings of all the holy things of the sons of Israel; to thee I have given them for the anointing, and to thy sons, for a statute of an age.

9 This shall be for thee from the holy of holies from the fire: every offering of theirs, every gift·​·offering of theirs, and every sin offering of theirs, and every guilt offering of theirs, which they shall return unto Me, it shall be a holy of holies for thee and for thy sons.

10 In the holy of holies shalt thou eat it; every male shall eat it; it shall be holy to thee.

11 And this is thine: the uplifting of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the sons of Israel; I have given them to thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, by a statute of an age; everyone who is clean in thy house shall eat of it.

12 All the fat of the olive·​·oil, and all the fat of the must* and grain, their firstfruits which they shall give to Jehovah, to thee I have given them.

13 A firstfruit of all that is in the land, which they shall bring to Jehovah, shall be thine; everyone who is clean in thy house shall eat of it.

14 Every devoted·​·thing in Israel shall be thine.

15 All that opens·​·up the womb of all flesh, which they offer to Jehovah, among man and among beast, shall be for thee; only redeeming shalt thou redeem the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of the unclean beast shalt thou redeem.

16 And those who are to be redeemed from a son of a month shalt thou redeem, with thy value, the silver of five shekels, by the shekel of the sanctuary; this is twenty gerahs.

17 Only the firstborn of an ox, or the firstborn of a sheep, or the firstborn of a goat, thou shalt not redeem; they are holy; thou shalt sprinkle their blood on the altar, and shalt burn· their fat ·for·​·incense for a fire·​·offering, for a restful smell to Jehovah.

18 And their flesh shall be for thee as the chest portion of the waving, and as the right hind·​·quarter is for thee.

19 All the upliftings of the holy things, which the sons of Israel lift·​·up to Jehovah, have I given to thee, and to thy sons and to thy daughters with thee, for an eternal statute; it is a covenant of salt of eternity before Jehovah to thee and to thy seed with thee.

20 And Jehovah said to Aaron, Thou shalt not inherit in their land, and thou shalt not have a part in their midst. I am thy part and thine inheritance in the midst of the sons of Israel.

21 And, behold, I have given the sons of Levi all the tithe in Israel for an inheritance, in·​·exchange·​·for their service which they serve, even the service of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

22 Neither must the sons of Israel any·​·more come·​·near unto the Tabernacle of the congregation, lest they bear sin, and die.

23 But the Levites shall serve the service of the Tabernacle of the congregation, and they shall bear their iniquity; it shall be an eternal statute for your generations, that in the midst of the sons of Israel they shall not inherit an inheritance.

24 But the tithes of the sons of Israel, which they lift·​·up as an uplifting to Jehovah, I have given to the Levites for an inheritance; therefore I have said to them, In the midst of the sons of Israel they shall not inherit an inheritance.

25 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

26 Then speak to the Levites, and say to them, When you take from the sons of Israel the tithes, which I have given to you from them for your inheritance, then you shall lift·​·up an uplifting from it for Jehovah, even a tithe* of the tithe.

27 And this your uplifting shall be reckoned to you, as though it were the grain of the threshing·​·floor, and as the fullness of the winepress.

28 So also shall you lift·​·up an uplifting to Jehovah from all your tithes, which you take from the sons of Israel; and you shall give from it Jehovah’s uplifting to Aaron the priest.

29 From all your gifts you shall lift·​·up every uplifting of Jehovah, of all its fat, the holy·​·part of it from it.

30 And thou shalt say to them, When you have lifted·​·up its fat from it, then it shall be reckoned to the Levites as the increase of the threshing·​·floor, and as the increase of the winepress.

31 And you shall eat it in every place, you and your houses; for it is your wage in·​·exchange·​·for your service in the Tabernacle of the congregation.

32 And you shall not bear sin on·​·account·​·of it, when you have lifted·​·up from it the fat of it; and you shall not profane the holy things of the sons of Israel, and you shall not die.

Explanation of Numbers 18      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-7. On the power given to those inmostly in good to fight against evil; the conjunction of those in charity with those in celestial love; and the functions of the latter and the former; also that no one in selfish love inmostly can truly perform those functions.

Verses 8-16. The celestial man alone has perception, and through him is all illustration with the spiritual man; to the Lord through the celestial man is to be ascribed all that the spiritual man acknowledges to be from the Divine Love; and faith, which at first is separated, must be conjoined with charity, while impure natural affection must be purified.

Verses 17-20. The good of faith in its three degrees is holy and must be ascribed to the Lord through celestial love; and all illustration which the spiritual man receives from the Lord must be ascribed to Him through the celestial heavens; but the celestial man has perception; and the celestial and spiritual heavens are distinguished as love to the Lord is distinguished from love to the neighbour.

Verses 21-32. Concerning the distinction between the celestial-natural and the spiritual-natural.
