Deuteronomy 18:1-3 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

18 “And there shall not be for the Levitical priests, the whole tribe of Levi, a plot of ground and an inheritance with Israel, rather they may eat an offering made by fire as their inheritance,[a] for Yahweh. And there shall not be for them[b] an inheritance of land in the midst of his brothers; rather Yahweh is his inheritance, just as he promised[c] to them.[d]

Now this shall be the share of the priest from the people, from those who sacrifice the sacrifice,[e] whether it is an ox, sheep, or goat, and they shall give the priest the shoulder and the jawbones and the stomach.

  3. Deuteronomy 18:2 Literally “spoke”
  4. Deuteronomy 18:2 Hebrew “him”
  5. Deuteronomy 18:3 Literally “the sacrificers of the sacrifice”
