Deuteronomy 18:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Laws for the Levites

18 The Levitical priests—in fact, the whole tribe of Levi—will receive no land or property of their own like the rest of the Israelites. They will eat what has been sacrificed to the Lord. These sacrifices will be what they receive. [a] So the Levites will have no land of their own like the other Israelites. The Lord will be their inheritance, as he promised them.

This is what the people owe the priests whenever they sacrifice an ox, a sheep, or a goat: the shoulder, jaws, and stomach.
